SATURN in CAP going direct (Sept 6 – Apr 30, 2019): Now, what ARE we Building?

4 Sep
Countdown for SATURN in CAP going direct (Sept 6 – Apr 30, 2019):

 

Hubble: Infrared Saturn Sequence

 

Now, what ARE we Building?

SATURN retro (since Apr 17) in CAP has shown us what has served its purpose, is outlived (been there, done that), and also where there isn’t responsibility and mature leadership in place, and old, RE-curring issues have been frustrating or outright abusive and disrespectful.
 
Still, everything is a teaching… how can we use even those SATURN retro lessons for the highest purpose, and what do they call forth in us?
All the ‘NO’s of the last months have been showing us what’s complete, and gave us RE-minders of what not to RE-vert back to / not create more karmic debt around.

SEPTEMBER is an important SATURN month with stationary / retro-to-direct SATURN – modelling and showing us what it takes to turn things around, and to turn the focus from problem / obstacle to solution.
It may well start with a commitment – SATURN is the ‘Ringed One’ after all.
What’s the commitment you’re making with yourself and others these days???

I know three couples who’re getting married mid / late September – and helped two of them with choosing a well matched wedding date.
Great examples for SATURN’s turnaround.
So many blessings extended for your committed partnership! ❤

Of course, SATURN direct is also much better for starting / building businesses, signing contracts, etc. Anything that’s meant to last and to be rock solid – it’s SATURN, and it’s CAP, after all.

However, I’d suggest to wait until the VIRGO New MOON on 09 / 09 to actually go forward with such projects.

 

SATURN with CHIRON and URANUS

The square from SATURN in early CAP to CHIRON retro in early AR (Healing the Old through Inner Medicine and Authenticity) is now integrating.

While the Earth trine from SATURN to URANUS retro in TAU is going strong in Sept. 
An energy that combines traditional quality and time proven values, teachings, and respect for the Elders with a renewing embodyment of The Law and Natural Laws.
Be in natural alignment with the energies and their teachings!

 

Blessings for the SATURNian September!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.

SATURN and PLUTO Stationary in April (Going Retro Apr 17 / 22): Inner Authority. Inner Soul Power.

17 Apr

SATURN the ‘Ringed One’ is (besides the ‘Winged One’ MERCURY) also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro today Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

 

 

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… 

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

PLUTO (New Horizons Mission 2015)

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose… 
PLUTO also in CAP (2009 – 2023) is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 

True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.

As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both in CAP and both go retro this month (which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS – PLUTO, and LILITH in CAP this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner Soul Power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

Much Love and Cosmic Blessings to YOU!

Happy Australia Day 2018!

25 Jan

The SUN is in AQUARIUS now (Jan 19 / 20 – Feb 18 / 19, 2018 – time zone dependent)

AQUARIUS rules the abstract mind, science, organizations, constellations, incl. star constellations, hence also Astrology, AND Australia!

 
 
Southern_Cross_OZ_Kanga
 

Happy Australia Day, in the heat of Summer, on Jan 26!

Australia Day is the official National Day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January. It marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at that site by Governor Arthur Phillip.
 

Here’s the 12 noon chart for that day which shows Australia has a lot of AQ energyThe SUN, PLUTO, VENUS, and SATURN.

 

Capricornian colonial history too…
Even if we don’t like the imperialistic shadow of CAP (does it surprise you that Great Britain is a CAP country…?), how about celebrating the essence of AQ?!
Constellation of Equals, and Co-creating the Future in Community!
Howzit going with those, Ozzers? 

Milky Way with Southern Cross (NASA picture) – can you see it in the middle?


Like on the Kangaroo  above…

Thanks you gals over there, in Brisbane, Alexandra, Darwin, and Sydney, for staying connected! Obviously thinking of specific Astro AUS friends, but extending my greetings to all of you!
Hope to visit you some day, Down Under!

S.A.T.U.R.N. – The Acronym. The Archetype.

22 Dec

Greetings, dear Astro Friends,
on Day Three of SATURN in CAPRICORN!

The CAP SUN just passed SATURN on Winter Solstice Day – yesterday Dec 21 – and shows us how it goes: Moving UP, in the Light of Consciousness.
Being in our Authority, keeping it Simple, sticking with Priorities, saying NO as needed, Acknowledging Reality, and working Respectfully with Resources is what the SATURN Doc prescribes…

Saturn Pop

Saturn Infrared (Hubble Space Telescope)

Let’s play with the S.A.T.U.R.N. Acronym, to demo what the SATURN Archetype is about:

S:
Strong and steady. Stamina. Structure. Sculpting. Statue. Stones. Satisfaction.

A:
Authority. Ancestors. Ancient. Archetypes. Archeology. Astrology. Aboriginal.

T:
Tests. Tasks. Teaching. Teachers. Training. Time. Timing. Threshold.

U:
Use (wise and responsible, for the highest purpose, no abuse / exploitation, no under-use / waste). Ur (ancient in German). Uniform. Unicorn (blend of SAG Horse and CAP Horn).

R:
Ring (boundaries, commitment, container). Rights (standing up for one’s rights, respecting one another’s human and civil rights). Rhythm.

N:
NO. Not. SATURN contrasts and negates the other Archetypes (e.g. SATURN – URANUS: Structure – Freedom; SATURN – NEPTUNE: Form – Formlessness; SATURN – JUPITER: Contraction – Expansion; SATURN – MOON: Elder / Maturation – Child / Needs).

Some of these S.A.T.U.R.N. expressions also relate to CAPRICORN – SATURN’s mountainous ‘domain’ (yet, I’d write a separate blog about CAP Acro).

 

DSC02575

What Time is it? The Sun dial in Beacon Hill Park IS pretty exact. I asked my Swiss friend to check his watch (all so VIRGO), and indeed, with Daylight Savings Time considered (4:15 pm on the watch, 3:15 pm on the Sun dial) it matched up…

The point would be with those Acronym themes to express them well.
Karma cookies may follow. But that’s not why we’re a good expression of these virtues – it may simply be because we’ve experienced what doesn’t work between people and in the world, what wastes time and exhausts energy, and we want to live more simply and in straight-forward manner.

 

Have you seen the SATURN in CAP video that I recorded on Dec 20 ‘on the rocks’? There, I expand on the Acronym themes too 🙂

T. b.cont. with the C.A.P.R.I.C.O.R.N Acronym blog post, and perhaps another video, in the next few days – stay tuned!

 

You can find more daily SATURN in CAP posts / videos / FB Lives from Dec 20 – 30, at the FB event page.

 

Wishing you well for this Sacred Turning Point Time of the Year!

Melanie

SATURN in CAPRICORN (Dec 20, 2017 – Dec 17, 2020): About TIME…!

16 Dec

SATURN, the Archetype of the INNER ELDER / TEACHER / SAGE  will enter its own ‘mountainous’ domain of CAPRICORN on DEC 19 (Dec 20 AST, and anywhere East of it).

It wants (us) to climb – saying: Humanity, you can do better!


SATURN in CAP until DEC 17, 2020 will shape us up, and help us grow up, to be more fully on purpose, and not waste (anymore) precious time and resources.
2020 btw will be a huge CAP year, with JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO – big time structural changes!

 

SATURN has a 29-year cycle, and hasn’t been in CAP since NOV 1989 – JAN 1991, a time of huge structural changes esp. with the Berlin / East German Wall coming down, with a domino effect on Eastern European Communist regimes…

Societally, are we into times of more control, restrictive laws, and authoritarian, ultra conservative regimes?
Definitely a possibility. I trust that LILITH and PLUTO in CAP, ahead of SATURN, are ‘regulating’, and show how empowerment of people (esp. those usually on the ‘bottom of the pyramid’) is now underway, not to be controlled anymore.
JUPITER in SCO this year (Oct 2017 – Nov 2018) also helps to bring out hidden agenda.
And URANUS going into TAU (first brief phase May – early Nov 2018, then from March 2019 on) is a big Wake-up call of the Earth, and of values that matter.

Change is upon us. We gotta step into our natural authority, and not give it away (old mode SAT – CAP).
SATURN in CAP helps us with being resilient, and not give up – when the goal is worth pursuing and attaining.


And it helps us with saying NO to what’s a waste of time and energy.
Apropos energy:
SATURN in CAP is super energy efficient, and therefore into
Refuse – reuse – repurpose – recycle.

 

First things first (a la CAP):
What a Winter SoUlstice this will be, with SUN & SATURN aligned on the ‘Integrity Point, the first degree of CAP (see chart below)!
Hasn’t happened since 1870 that SATURN entered CAP just before Winter Solstice.

Here’s the SABIAN Symbol of 1° CAP:

Chief Seattle

“AN INDIAN CHIEF CLAIMS POWER FROM THE ASSEMBLED TRIBE.

KEYNOTE: The power and responsibility implied in any claim for leadership.

The religious ideal implied in the preceding symbol has now materialized or crystallized into sheer power — the power to lead the community and to ensure its welfare or even its physical survival. The energies released through group cooperation (Libra), deepened and emotionally experienced as forces of great potency (Scorpio), and given meaning and conscious purpose (Sagittarius) are now stabilized and hierarchized. The power of the group is turned into a measurable and carefully managed “capital.” The words “chief” and “capital” come from the same Latin word, caput, meaning “head.”
A time comes in many lives when the individual finds themselves placed in a situation that allows them to assume power over their comrades, however limited this power may be. Is he / she ready to do this effectively and responsibly? This is the supreme test of a human being in society.
It complements its polar opposite (Summer Solstice degree), which refers to the acceptance by the individual of a new kind of allegiance as a foundation for the integration of a mature personality. Such a foundation may, but need not, refer to establishing a home.

This represents the first stage in a five-fold process — the fifty-fifth sequence of five symbols. It refers to the capacity latent in every individual to claim and assume AUTHORITY in a vital group-situation.”

 

SATURN in CAP is clearly about Authority – a notion to claim it where appropriate, and the repercussions of its use (or abuse).
Quite clearly, we’re seeing plenty of evidence of the necessity for responsible leadership and authority, and for the misuse of it. The theme becomes more prominent in the SATURN in CAP years that can also have a heightened karmic effect (SATURN being the ‘Lord of Karma’, in its own domain CAP), across the board.
What / who’s evidently not fit for authority must adjust, or go.
Actually quite simple.

May better leadership and authority establish itself in these years.
What in us doesn’t step UP to the occasion, and assume leadership (because you can, you have the cap-acities)?
What’s in the way of truly leading your life?

 

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacle is / was) to the Light.

Elephant headed Ganesh, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles on the Path’ is buddies with SATURN, and can be invoked (if you resonate with him), to bring the (actual) obstacles to the light, whatever they may be, and a path to overcome or release them.

Speaking of The Path, SATURN comes out of SAG as it enters CAP.
And SAG is a lot about the Path we’re on.

RE-CAP:
Under SATURN in SAG over the last almost 3 years (since DEC 2014, and fully from SEPT 17, 2015 on) we’ve come to see through the ‘fake’, manipulative agenda, empty promises, and not so much light bringing but perhaps even life threatening ‘stories’ and beliefs. And we were called to be done with our own old stories and limiting beliefs.

Have you been able to cut through and rise beyond that, and be in your intrinsic Truth?
What does that look like now, vs 3 years ago?
 Comparing before – after is a great SATURN tool.

We’ve been challenged (SAT) to stay focused (SAG) on what matters most, and to come from the Heart (SAG Archer), rather than be pulled into divisive right-wrong polarization. 
SATURN from SAG to CAP – what I call the Integrity Point in the Zodiac – shows:
Being more solidly in our Truth, having cropped and pruned all sorts of BS that’s out there and can waste our time and energy, we see what’s real and meaningful.
Now it’s Time to live in Integrity and mature (inner / outer) leadership!
Rather than judging others we lead by example.

 

11 of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, with the white scarf offered to them by HH the Dalai Lama…

Speaking of maturity, SATURN, esp. in CAP, is also the Elder, the Sage, the Crone Archetype.
A group participant in one of our SATURN into CAP groups reminded us that Crone and Chronos = Greek name for SATURN relate!

“Her own child baring days are past; she is the wisdom keeper, seer and healer and midwife, whose knowledge is sought out to guide others during life’s hardships and transitions.” from: the Goddess Guide that also offers a list of many Crone Goddesses in different cultures (like Ereshkigal, Grandmother Spiderwoman, Hekate, Lilith, Frau Holle…). All of them can be invoked in these times where the Wisdom of the Old can lead us on.

With SATURN in CAP, Elderhood becomes important, and the Elders need to be respected and can help in precarious times, as experienced leaders. 
Societally, issues of old age security will become big, esp. since a big wave of baby boomers retire now.

 

The stakes are high, and Integrity is the key.
Growing-up time for humanity.

Say what you do, and do what you say, be the mature adult, and let SATURN be your accountability coach.
Integrity and accountability – essentially all good leadership qualities (or rather the lack thereof – SATURN’s job is to also show what’s missing, and why it would be so important to re-attain this) are a big deal these days in society, and perhaps also in our personal world. 

 

Vibrant Country Goat

 

If you have a CAPRICORN side in you it gets ‘SATURN-ized’:
SATURN’s TTTTT brings Tests, Tasks, Teaching, and Training, in Timeliness.

 

The following Themes will become important Priorities under SATURN in CAPRICORN:

AUTHORITY:
Who’s the Boss? You are. Bottom line – it’s your life. No one to blame or judge. Wouldn’t that be simple?

LESS is MORE:
End of guilt and ‘shoulds’, taking too much on, feeling resentful... you name it. Heavy, heavy stuff.
SATURN in CAP is quite ZEN about things: Simplicity beyond complexity, on all levels. Quality over quantity. Minimalism becomes more attractive to many.

INTEGRITY:
Say what you do, and do what you say, walk your talk, lead by example, and be the Change you wish to see. Hold yourself accountable, and honour the incremental progress (rather than being hard on yourself), like a good coach.

TIMING:
“…is everything” says CAP which works with the natural seasons of the year and the day, like a good traditional farmer. And yes, there are therefore times of focus and concentrated work, times of play, times of rest. To everything, there is a season, and a reason for the season – for YOU. Remember: with SATURN, you’re the boss, and it’s your time. Just say yes. Just say no.

The LAW:
Living by the Inner, Universal, Natural and Cosmic Laws.
Yet also important reforms of societal Laws that are not a reflection of common sense and constitutional rights will be due.

RESOURCES:
SATURN in CAP teaches us to become masters in resourcefulness (sometimes through necessity) and in self reliance. Perhaps through tapping into the CAPacities of our Ancestors to work with the land and the seasons – CAP rules Agriculture…
The shadow = exploitation of resources, people and ourselves, backfires with karmic SATURN. We only get away with so much, before it comes back at us…
The smart CAP Goat says: “I use. I use optimally what I got. I get (only) what I use. I use everything for the highest purpose.” (applies to everything, any life situation, like: rather than wasting it on the lower vibration of judgment and self judgment, how can we use it as a teaching, or…?)

RESPONSIBILITY:
What is it that we need to be good stewards and guardians of? I can think of a few things… esp. all that Mother Nature provides and makes life on Earth sustainable.
On the other hand, there can be lessons about not to take on what’s not ours to carry (like: by taking over, rather than letting others shape up and mature, or – similarly – by burdening ourselves with other people’s stuff).

MATURITY and AGING WELL:
Being mature and wise, instead of old, judgmental, and rigid. The societal issue (burden?) of an aging baby boomer generation will be a big deal under SATURN in CAP. Anti-aging will be popular – and aging well can be quite simple, by living well – which comes back to self-responsibility.

 

The CAPRICORN constellation is a fish-tailed Seagoat / Goat-Fish(did you know?). 

The CAP Being who has attained mastery on the height of ‘the mountain’ – but not just for their own purpose. The accomplishment / mastery must be made available to ALL (Fish).

Sometimes, this theme turns for our CAP side into the lower vibration of martyrdom.
Keep an eye on it, and say NO when taking too much on FOR others just isn’t right.


There are more SATURN in CAP themes…
Like – did you know? –

SATURN relates to the ROOT Chakra.
People with a strong SATURN in their chart are / need to be very grounded, and convert fear (a SATURN expression) into being in the here-now, grounding, and checking in with the physical body and its sensations.

 

 

On the note of Chakras, I’m so happy to announce that there’ll be another ROOT to CROWN Astrological Chakra Journey (first one after 1 1/2 years), starting with a free intro, on Jan 17 – the day after the CAP New Moon. 

 

Voila, here is the Chart of SATURN entering CAPRICORN:

 

As you see, it’s quite a celestial concentration from mid-SAG to mid-CAP, with MERCURY retro (almost ready to go direct again, on Dec 22 – yet in stationary slow moving / turnaround ‘storm’, VENUS, the late SAG SUN, and then over in CAP: SATURN, LILITH, PLUTO, and on that day also the newly waxing MOON, aligned with PLUTO.

 

Grand Fir

All gathering around the Winter SoUlstice Point of the Cosmic Tree / the Space (SAG) – Time (CAP) point, where we’re called to be at the right time at the right place.

Sounds simplistic perhaps. But can be hugely relevant, and perhaps even sum up Integrity.
What guides us, in this darkest point of the (Northern) year???

LILITH is ahead of SATURN in CAP, and so it PLUTO (SATURN aligns with PLUTO in Jan 2020). 
Therefore, CAP ‘success’, ‘mastery’, ‘resource & time management’ and ‘planning’ must be aligned with LILITH’s Crone Wisdom, and the core of what matters most (PLUTO in CAP).

 

SATURN in YOUR Chart…

…shows where YOU are called to be on Purpose, in your Authority, Self Mastery, and Bring out YOUR Best, which areas of life call you for that (money, children, relationships, travel, career…), in what way (Sign), and in which  other dynamics (Aspects to other Planets).

If you have SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or Planets in CAP, and for all of us, where CAP is in our charts, this is a 3-Year Initiation phase to cultivate Living on Purpose, and in authentic Integrity and Leadership from within.
It’s Your Life, and Your Time, and Your ‘Mountain’!

 

Are you in a SATURN Return ‘Generation’?

If you were born between NOV 1988 and JAN 1991 you’ll have your 1st SATURN RETURN (round age 28 – 30).
If you were born between JAN 1959 and DEC 1961, this will be your 2nd SATURN RETURN (round age 57 – 59).
And if you were born between DEC 1929 and NOV 1932 (I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a lot of people out there in that group, since SATURN in CAP is about aging well…) you have your 3rd SATURN RETURN (round age 86 – 88).

Full Circle to be in your Natural Authority, and to bring out YOUR Best!

 

Would you like to join the Astro~EmBODYment of the Winter Solstice and SATURN in CAP?
On Dec 20, all participants step into the energies of the Planetary Archetypes, where they are at Winter Solstice (the slow ones in the years ahead), incl. SATURN
, feel out their energy, and share it in a safe circle! So much direct inner guidance can come from being in the EmBODYment.

 

On the first 10 days of SATURN in CAP (Dec 20 – 30) I’ll offer a SATURN in CAP Start-up Message a Day – stay tuned on my FB Page Astrology for Self Realization.

 

Blessings to all of us for a fulfilling and well grounded-out finale of 2017, with SATURN in CAP, and all the other ‘Cosmic Players’!

SATURN in late SAG (the Galactic Center / Centaur) squares CHIRON in PISCES on Nov 2: Medicine Teachings

2 Nov

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius.
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

NO – not the Full Moon (NOV 3 / 4) Astro~News yet… some Taurean patience please, since something else is on today (which the Full Moon will highlight and bring out too, of course):

For the 3rd and last time (after Dec 2016 and Apr 2017) SATURN squares CHIRON today, NOV 2..
Now, SATURN is in late SAG, the area which projects out into the Centre of the Milky Way, a.k.a. Galactic Centre – pointing us to the Ultimate Unknown and Unknowable.
In the Northern Hemisphere the SUN is there on the last days before Winter Solstice.

How do we know, or how can we trust the Light will return???

Since Sept 2015, SATURN in SAG has brought trials and tests, to show us how we respond to perceived road blocks.
How can we be done with old stories and limiting beliefs (that ARE the road blocks)?
It would be good to do a review of Before (2015 when SATURN entered SAG) & After – now in the last 7 weeks of SATURN in SAG (until Dec 19).

We might have been afraid esp. recently that a ‘wrong direction’ (SAG) by (ir)responsible leaders (SATURN) can set off a trajectory on the karmic path (SATURN) that can make us all vulnerable (CHIRON in PI), to put it mildly. Yes, we know and feel it… or tune into collective fears.

Speaking of the ‘pink elephant in the room’, Trump is affected by SATURN in late SAG, now (every 29 years) right on his South Node / Lunar Eclipse MOON that likes to preach, go by good-bad / right-wrong judgments, ‘shoot from the hip’, and exhaustingly (apparently more for the audience than for himself) target, or be the target.
Listening and learning (GEM) would be the incentive in his chart – and life.

What’s the teaching (SATURN), the ‘way out'(?), the healing and Medicine (CHIRON) in this?
Trust (one of the themes of SAG) doesn’t seem to take us far these days, under SATURN in SAG, at least not trust in people in authority, perhaps not even trust in our own choices and responses under stress? 
We know, the road of division, separation, righteous accusation, polarization, and arrogance, all fueled by fear (all shadow expressions of SATURN in SAG) goes nowhere (except provokes karmic repercussions).
In the polarized world, the CHIRON in PI would mean, someone / some party has to surrender, or else suffers greatly.
How can these old agendas, beliefs, ‘stories’, and paradigms be ‘washed out’ and released? What sets them free?

Rumi: Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you Do

What’s the High Road that dissolves Right-doing and Wrong-doing?
‘The Field’ Rumi points to?

Can be ‘only’ the All-Connective Fabric of LOVE that’s beyond personal attraction, likeness, preference.
Unconditional.

The Love that has no Opposite (as Krishnamurti pointed out).

An ultimate Medicine for us, in our personal suffering, and a vibration we can offer to a world in distress, and whom-it-may-concern.

So let’s keep our Hearts wide open and connected to Source, and offer Love that IS, unconditionally, simply because…

 

 

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

Guru Purnima Full Moon Blessings – with the Astro ‘Gurus’ Jupiter & Saturn!

6 Jul

There’s a lot to the upcoming CAP – CAN Full Moon – exact on Saturday July 8 at 9:07 pm PDT!

Yet, it can be summed up in simple ways (CAP likes that!) – Guru Purnima leads the way!

The Full Moon comes with Sirius the ‘Dog Star’ / Scorcher (which is presently at 14°19′ CAN), next to the SUN / MARS, and with Vega the ‘Harp Star’ (which is presently at 15°34′ CAP), next to the MOON / PLUTO.
Two major Fixed Stars – with beautiful yet also dramatic ‘star love lore’ are involved in the already Full Moon ‘Power House’.
And: the Full Moon axis is squared by super-charger JUPITER.

Here is the Sirius / Vega enhanced Full Moon Chart – whoaaa!

CAP - CAN FM 2017 Sirius Vega

 

Here on the West Coast, the Full Moon will be exact at Moonrise / Sunset!

Clearly, this Full Moon gets our attention, and has us process lots of inner, old, ancestral, ancient ‘stuff’ (PLUTO next to the MOON in CAP).

 

Pluto Heart

Pluto Reveals… One of the first pictures New Horizons transmitted from the close fly-by in July 201

 

And it’ll be also in the centre of CAN – CAP (which has a ‘fixed’ SCO – TAU ‘undertone’ – the ‘axis of the Buddha’.

A friend sent me a Ram Das article today – so synchronistic.

Here ‘s a related one that’s even more pertinent. RD nails it. SO apropos full-ON CAP Moon with Pluto:

  • What’s our job when people ‘are difficult’?
  • How do our emotions and needs (like for them to love and appreciate us) have power over us, pull you into the drama and out of equanimity?
  • What needs to deepen to change this?
  • A heavy curriculum… (a la CAP)… yet lightened and transformed in the Heart.

I get it, and have been there with family and other ‘karmic partners’…

This Full Moon also helps us connect with ‘Ancient Essence’ – the essence of the Ancestors (PLUTO in CAP with the MOON). Biological Ancestors, ancient Teachers, Ancestors of the Land…
Maybe their Spirit is speaking to us…

 

In Hindu and Buddhist tradition the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru.

Ganesha

Ganesh is being invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays / -years…
SATURN (ruler of the Full Moon sign CAP) is presently in SAG (Sept 2015 – Winter Solstice 2017) where karmic challenges for ‘the journey’ / the path arise – only to teach us what our inner blocks and old beliefs are…

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way!

 

 


OM_concentric
“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the Sun is closest to the Earth and the Full Moon reflects the brightest light. It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.

Because the energies of the Sun and Moon are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun on this day will bring growth and auspiciousness in the life of the disciple.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman, just as the Moon reflects the brightness of the Sun.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner guru / teacher / mentor / light bringer, I’d say.

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS  (PLUTO points us to ‘that’). The guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the mentor, and SATURN, the teacher.

 

Jupiter & Earth

Presently, JUPITER is in mid LIBRA, T-squaring the Full Moon axis(!):

As mentioned above:
What ‘kicks us out of balance’ (esp. in relationships with loved ones and not-so-loved ones)?
What’s the emotional charge – CAN – and what’s the need for acknowledgment, control that turns into judgment – CAP – ?
What brings us into inner Peace, regardless?

How about developing a good relationship (LIBRA) with spiritual practice?
Once we SEE the benefits (JUPITER) it’s clearly a wise choice (LI).

 

Saturn & Earth

SATURN is also very potent at this Guru Puja time, since it is now almost stationary (during August), and will go from retro (since Apr 6) to direct / forward on Aug 25.

As we step out of the ‘path’ of limiting Karma and ‘Obstacles’, we SEE more clearly, and move forward with transformed understanding and strength.

 

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026) so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices  have massively reached the Western, modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The Light in me honours the Light in you!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!
