ARIES MOON Alert! Igniting the Spirit, for a FIERY Week and Month!

15 Jul
 
Cornucopia FractalHave you noticed the shift from the super flowy, immersive PISCES MOON mode / mood on July 13 / 14, to a vibrant, exciting, dynamic, energetic, sparkly and spunky vibe, since today (July 15)?
 
Yep, that’s the ARIES MOON – igniting not only a fiery weekend where we better find creative outlets for all that energy, like: spontaneity and being in the moment – or else…
Since the MOON in ARIES is in ‘mutual reception’ (a double whammy) with MARS (ruler of ARIES) presently in CANCER (the home of the MOON) a lot of emotions can be provoked, evoked, stirred up (which is not a ‘bad thing’, it just could lead to premature reactions, and really, really needing to ‘do your thing’… – yet that might be just something in the moment, don’t break up over it!).
It IS a kind of emergency / alert mode. What’s up NOW? How are you in THIS moment? Maybe something’s calling, to really, really get started with…?
 
The ARIES MOON already opposed JUPITER in LIBRA this eve, and will go into trine with MERCURY in fiery LEO tonight:
Let’s appreciate every new day (and moment), all our Relations, speak from the Heart, and be authentic!
Tomorrow, July 16, the ARIES MOON will create a square with PLUTO retro in CAP, trine SATURN retro in SAG, square MARS in CANCER, and finally – tatahhhh! – meet its ‘higher octave’, the transpersonal URANUS!
Woohoo, that’s a handful of lunar alignments in one day!
Let’s ignite the Spirit, and create with Life Force!

What excites and inspires you these days?

 
For me, it’s been my Birthday, and all the wonderful wishes and blessings I received – almost overwhelming! -, and the Art: Seeing lovely friends at the Art Walk, and meeting artists – all so LIBRA – , and appreciating our artistic Victoria.
 
The MOON / URANUS ‘grand finale’ tomorrow is like fireworks of liberation, inspiration, newness, innovativeness, freshness, and rebirth!
 
 
The ARIES MOON gets the ball rolling, for an even more FIERY week, and month to come:
 
Lionesses_Drinking
  • MARS will go into LEO on July 20 – and will we ever notice a shift, from the CANCER MARS (since early June) mode that has been rather introverted, recluse, even regressive, sensitive, ‘homey’, self protective, self caring, to a self expressive energy boost: Show your Colours, be YOU!
  • On July 22, the SUN goes into LEO – full Summer glow!
  • And on July 23 will be the early LEO NEW MOON with MARS!
 
More about all that burst of Colour and Creation… soon.
You already feel it, don’t 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!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

VENUS in GEMINI x MERCURY in LEO = Summer De-Light!

6 Jul

Double De-Light-ful News:

Charming VENUS (presently ‘Morning Star’, rising before the SUN) just entered GEMINI on July 4 – to breeze like a gorgeous butterfly through the airy Alchemist energy until July 31.

Have you noticed too? So many really attractive things to learn and talk about, these days!
I found a few cool podcasts, been digging into my books, and found a few good Summer reads, discovered treasures among my Astro course material – and just offered two exciting new ones (both with online participation option):
Astro Archetypes Summer Immersion – with Archetypes Pairs! 🙂 – starting July 25.
Jupiter Journaling Journey– starting Aug 2.

And then, the languages… delighting in speaking / writing French these days, juste un peu… and talking German with family…

GEMINI is the Alchemist of the Zodiac – bridging polarities and dualities.
And the shortest bridge between people can me just a smile and a kind word 🙂

If YOU have GEMINI in your chart (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets), enjoy being a magnet this month, like a flower to butterflies!
So much to learn from nature and people… and they can learn from you.
Also, it’s a nice time for writing, in loving, relational ways (VENUS).
And for those Summer reads…

 

2 major ‘dance encounters’ for VENUS in GEM:

On July 17, VENUS will go into square with NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave) in PISCES (where VENUS is exalted – ONE Love!):
Taking the GEM interests and learning to a sublime, unifying level. Asking deep ‘unanswerable’ questions that take us to the ONE.

On July 18, VENUS will go into a de-light-full trine with JUPITER in ‘her’ LIBRAN world: 
Making wise choices that really speak to the Heart. Seeing the mirror effect with partners-in-Life (on all levels). Communicating with open-hearted curiosity.

Speaking of GEMINI – its ruling planet MERCURY, the Alchemist Archetype, a.k.a. Mind Mentor, a.k.a. Trickster, just moved yesterday July 5 out of the cozy Cancer zone, into radiant LEO – noticing a shift?

Show your colours (HA, just in time for Pride week!), and speak in a confident, creative, expressive, passionate, colourful way too!
Be the Heart-ist!
Say it from the Heart, be warm and generous, and HAVE FUN!

 

2 major MERCURY grooves too, creating a Grand Fire Trine:

On July 17, MERCURY in LEO will go into Fire Trine with SATURN in SAG.
On July 24,
MERCURY will go into Fire Trine with (it’s ‘higher octave’) URANUS in AR.

Acknowledging ‘reality check’ (choose your journey well, and, above all: know where you COME from) leads to freedom to be YOU!

 

MERCURY will be in LEO until July 25, to move into VIRGO – but come BACK to LEO (yes, yes, because it’ll go retro, Aug 12 – Sept 5!) Aug 31 – Sept 9!
Lots of creative passion to discover this Summer!

Early Summer Standstill and Spiraling Vibes

29 Jun
chartreslabyrinth

Chartres Labyrinth

This Summer Solstice / CANCER New Moon phase (June 23 – July 23) is a Turnaround Time, in many ways.

Yes, the SUN and MERCURY just moved last week – right ON Summer Solstice into CANCER (both together!) which turns the vital and mental energy into the feeling zone, and the NEW MOON activates the visceral, instinctual qualities.
Questions of origin, home, and belonging, how we nurture and what nurtures the soul, are on – as families and tribes gather.

Some of our Planetary SoUlar System ‘Family Members’ also reflect the ‘standstill’ / turnaround energy this month too:

JUPITER recently went direct (June 9), and is still stationary (moving super slowly) all June.
URANUS is slowing down, to go retro on Aug 2, and will be stationary July / Aug.
CHIRON is slowing down too, to go retro on July 1, and is now stationary (June / July). Stay tuned for the CHIRON Turning Point in the next days.
NEPTUNE went retro on June 16, and is still stationary until mid-July.
Plus, MARS is in CANCER ‘crab walk mode’ (until July 20), adding to the Spiraling Effect. With MARS in CANCER, a lot of old emotions, esp. anger, are stirred into action!

In other words, these planets have just recently changed, or are in the process of changing direction from direct (forward from Earth perspective) to retro (CHIRON, URANUS, and NEPTUNE), or from retro to direct  (JUPITER).

All these stationary / retro planets end of June / in July are focal points, and their archetypal energy naturally spirals inward / backward – soulward.

CHIRON, URANUS, and NEPTUNE bring us with their archetypal experiences, of healing / medicine journey, liberation, and transcendence, to more inward,  and also to ‘revisit’ places we’ve been before in those experiences, to release the past.

SATURN, now retro, and in Aug / Sept stationary in late SAG – the Galactic Centre (will go direct on Aug 25) calls us to go into deep inner Heart Truth.

We are called go backwards / inwards, for REsolve and RElease, esp. when it comes to old low and unconscious vibrations of…

CHIRON in PI: Old shame, vulnerability, and wounds that turn into our ‘shamanic scars’.

URANUS in AR: Old RE-actionary, hectic, survival stress.

NEPTUNE in PI: Old overwhelm, confusion, delusions, addictions, ways of ‘checking out’ and giving up come up to be released.

SATURN: Old REpetitive patterns, karma, and blocks and obstacles, through being stuck in judgment, limiting beliefs, old stories, pain – all ‘excess luggage’ that prevents us from moving forward with trust and from the heart.

 

In the turnaround, we are called to find through the release from the ‘inside-out’ more conscious vibrations of:

CHIRON in PI : The ‘wound’ carries the Medicine. Unity heals.

URANUS in ARLiberation into the vibrant NOW Presence.

NEPTUNE in PIDropping into Unity Consciousness, in the Unified Field.

SATURN in SAG: Life is a Pilgrimage – Spirit Guides us. 

 

Many Heartfelt Summer Blessings!

Enjoy this Body-Mind-Spirit Nourishing Season!
