Our True Nature is Wild & ONE! LILITH goes into PISCES (May 3, 2019 – Jan 27, 2020)

30 Apr

 

‘Wild Woman’ LILITH is shifting signs (only every 9 months), as ‘she’ moves out of AQ (since Aug 2018), and immerses herself in the Waters of PISCES, on May 3, 2019.

Freedom (AQ) allows for Oneness to emerge.
Having found our like-spirited community, we feel naturally, wildly connected, can relax and just be ourselves, in Oneness, and as the ONE.

With LILITH in AQ over the last 9 months, we hopefully found different, new, ‘upgraded’ community / social / cooperative friendships and alliances based on fairness, reciprocity, equality and… Freedom!
Wouldn’t work otherwise… since intrinsically Freedom loving LILITH would be out of it.
When our inner / the societal LILITH has found her community in Freedom ‘she’ feels connected and One with ALL.
There’s ease and flow.
Otherwise, when it’s not her vibe she’s ‘out of it’.

Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH represents our True, ‘Wild’ Nature that’s always FREE and in the ONE.

Sensing where this goes?
LILITH in PISCES will meet NEPTUNE (exact early Oct).
Rather than tapping into wild chaos, overwhelm or addiction, best to channel the energy into getting absorbed by the Unifying Field of LOVE.
LILITH will also go into sextile with SATURN / PLUTO in CAP in Sept / early Nov.
Which adds groundedness and purpose to the picture. How can your connectedness help others too?
What would be the highest purpose of the realization of your ISness?
No major challenging aspects for LILITH in PISCES – so ‘she’ can just roll & swim & surf the connectedness as ‘she’ pleases.

LILITH is 9 months in a Zodiac sign, and has a 9-year cycle.
‘She’ returns to the energy in our birth chart every 9 years.
I.o.w., at ages 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, and 90, we have our LILITH Return.
Are you in one of these ages? Then your LILITH might be in PISCES and you have your LILITH Return!

 

Blessings for Wildness in ONEness!

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 yourself in 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.

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

 

Presently, until May 12 / Mother’s Day, ASTRO~SPA for Moms is on!
As a mom, treat yourself, or treat a mom to a 20% discounted Astro~Alchemy session!

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES

Your True Nature is FREE – LILITH enters AQ on Aug 6 (until May 4, 2019), and URANUS goes retro on Aug 7.

3 Aug

LILITH, the Archetype of the ‘Wild Woman’, or rather ‘Unconditioned Nature’ will enter Freedom loving AQUARIUS on Aug 6 –
…while URANUS, the ruling Planet of AQ is being squared by MARS (exact Aug 1), and goes retro on Aug 7 – whoa!

Dramatic Lightning through the Clouds (Photographer unknown)

URANUS, the Archetype of the Awakener and Liberator ‘sitting’ in stationary (unsettling!) mode on the ‘Settling Point’ in early TAU throughout July while in square with MARS which is presently retro in URANUS ruled AQ (exact / culminating on AUG 1) – a ‘double whammy’.

It’s been indeed an erratic zigzag course of slow and stagnant ‘sitting on things’, mixed with sudden break-outs / breakthroughs which can also erupt as accidents.


MARS – URANUS brings sudden ways of disrupting old defunct energy, and perhaps release Martian anger. 
Remember, URANUS is innovative and MARS finds a way for the energy to be released – like a flash of lightning…

Ultimately, it’s about FREEDOM:
URANUS in TAU disrupts our old attachments to certain ‘comfort traps’ that prevent us from being free.

Now, as of Aug 7, URANUS joins the club of retro planets, and makes it a record of SEVEN (MERCURY, MARS, SATURN, CHIRON, URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) in the first half of August.

With so much cosmic RETRO energy we’re called to go backwards / inwards, for REsolve and RElease, esp. when it comes to old low and unconscious perhaps karmically ‘inherited’ vibrations.
Check out my blog post about the RETRO Record Summer for the particulars.

With URANUS in early TAU going retro (Aug 7 – Jan 7) we might re-visit our inner less attached and freer Self from the past, and find the place inside that’s free, independent of Taurean security. And we’re called to find freedom in the physically embodied self (and don’t need to ‘check out’ to be free).

URANUS will on its retro trip and over the Winter go back into ARIES (where it’s been since March 2011 until Apr 2018) to show us how new approaches to a situation and seeing it in a fresh, new light can be so liberating and surprising (btw: life never turns out how we expect it to….).

Bottom line: URANUS in TAU / AR:
Embodied Liberation into the vibrant NOW Presence.

 

What’s LILITH got to do with it?

You bet LILITH and URANUS are buddies.

LILITH has a 9-year cycle, and hasn’t been in AQ since Oct 2009 – June 2010 (last phase).
‘She’ travels 9 month in one sign – a ‘pregnancy phase’ to cultivate intrinsic qualities of that Zodiac energy, through / in our True, Free, unconditioned Nature.
And by the way, ‘she’ never goes retro.

 

Ancient Sumerian Lilith Relief

 

Quick re-CAP, for the context:

LILITH in ‘traditional Astrology’ represents the wild and free inner Feminine. ‘She’ is a force of Nature, and relies on ‘her’ inner natural knowing.
Under LILITH in CAP over the last 9 months since Nov 2017, we’ve seen countless BS regarding Integrity and ‘mature Leadership’. Our instinctual Nature knows when something doesn’t smell good / sit well, and we need to walk away / find our Freedom.

‘She’ fiercely resists being conditioned, subordinated, disrespected, and ‘used’, in societal, patriarchal ways, in terms of what a woman (and: Nature) is ‘supposed to be’, as defined by patriarchal values.

SATURN now (also) retro in CAP advises us to not give authority away, and source it from within.
We’re responsible for our lives. Done with guilt and ‘shoulds’, taking too much on, feeling resentful… you name it. Heavy, heavy stuff. Lighten the load!
LILITH in CAP has also shown us to be quite ZEN about things, and cultivate simplicity beyond complexity.
The main alignment for LILITH in CAP was the MARS – PLUTO – LILITH alignment in CAP this May – when Mt. Kilauea erupted, and the Earth Mother showed her power.… still in process…

 

‘Wild Woman’ LILITH is shifting Zodiac energies (only every 9 months), as ‘she’ enters Freedom loving AQ, on Aug 5 / 6). 

 

 

LILITH in AQ – Our True Nature is FREE.

Integrity & Simplicity (CAP) leads to Freedom (AQ).

Throughout Aug and Sept until early Oct, LILITH and MARS are travelling super close to each other and to the Lunar South Node, on the ‘Community Builder’ / ‘Prometheus Point’ (CAP / AQ) – see chart below.

LILITH gets a MARtian boost (exact alliances Aug 10 & Oct 2), to process anger and turn it into dynamic action, esp. related to society and humanity. Release draining, imbalanced associations, and engage in groups and with people where there’s Integrity & Freedom.
With the Lunar North Node in LEO, best to start with LOVE, and connect from there.

Socially speaking, this can lead to different, new, Heart ‘upgraded’ friendships, and community / social / cooperative alliances that are based on fairness, reciprocity, equality and… freedom! 
Wouldn’t work otherwise… since intrinsically freedom loving LILITH would be out of it.

Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH represents our True, ‘Wild’ and unconditioned / unconditional Inner Nature that’s always FREE.

 

Here’s the chart for LILITH’s entry into AQ!

Since I couldn’t find info about the exact time on Aug 6, I experimented, and found 11 pm PDT  worked best.

 

See the PLUTO / LILITH / MARS / South Node cluster from late CAP to early AQ?
That’s where a lot happens these ‘days’ / months! (LILITH, MARS, South Node) / years! (PLUTO), reflecting the death and transformation of the ‘Old World’, with lots of shadow coming to the surface in the process, and re-purposing of the energy into what’s more evolved.

LILITH moving into AQ also indicates a shift from dysfunctional old systems (AQ South Node – lined up with LILITH on Sept 18) to better communities – as we follow our Heart (LEO) and connect with good people to collaborate and team up with, and build the New and Alternative together.

LILITH on the CAP / AQ cusp will meet up / trade places with MARS twice, on Aug 10 (under MARS retro), plus again post MARS retro, on Oct 2.
LILITH is also very close to the Lunar South Node in AQ (exact alignment on Sept 18).
Basically, the trio of LILITH / MARS / South Node cruises together from Aug to early Oct, plus it squares URANUS in early TAU (exact for LILITH on Aug 28).
Lots of wild and crazy yet also wildly liberating and high frequency energy in the atmosphere / astrosphere.

 

LILITH in AQ will also go into ‘square dance’ with VENUS in SCO three times, before, during, and after VENUS’s retro journey ‘into the underworld’ this Fall:
On Sept 16 (VENUS direct), Oct 17 (VENUS retro – Oct 5 – Nov 16), and Dec 23 (VENUS direct).


Uhhh, that sounds like a juicy dynamic, shifting what others / society (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ before retro) deems beautiful and attractive to finding our intrinsic value (VENUS ‘Morning Star’) and freedom from deep within.
Imagine the freedom that ensues from fully valuing yourself.

 

LILITH in YOUR chart…

…shows the area where and how YOU need to be in tune with YOUR nature.
I.o.w., which areas of life trigger that (money, children, relationships, travel, career…) and in what way (sign, and aspects to other planets).

So, give the inner AQ LILITH a good outlet in the next 9 months, and be in the authentic Freedom!
It’s Your Life and the world needs YOU!

On a spiritual level, the LILITH in AQ shows us:
Our True Nature is always unconditionally FREE.

If you have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in AQ…
…and for all of us, where AQ is in our charts, this is the 9-month ‘pregnancy’ phase to cultivate being FREE in our True Self

 

In an esoteric sense, the CAP / AQ cusp is also the ‘Lightworker and Ascended Masters Point’.
Maybe LILITH  / MARS in AQ shows how angelic / light warriors are active and around us – reminding us: We ARE the Light!

If you have an Aquarian side in you it gets ‘lilified’, and infused with untameable and indomitable Spirit.

Let’s come together, on Day ONE of LILITH in AQ,
in our Special Astro Parlour:

LILITH into AQ (Aug 6, 2018 – May 4, 2019) – 
Your True Nature is FREE.

TUE AUG 7
7:07 – 9:39 PM PDT
Join us in person, or online via zoom, from your home or holiday

We’ll invoke and welcome LILITH’s entry into AQ, and discuss how to be best aligned with it, for the upcoming 9 months, customized for your astrological themes.

Relevant esp. for all of you with a strong LILITH in your chart, or SUN, MOON, AC, MC or planets in AQ, or in the other fixed signs TAU, LEO, and SCO. In doubt, I can check for you.

If you’d like to join this focused LILITH Workshop please register via email (to licht@islandnet.com), with your complete birth info (date, time, place). Welcome!
If you don’t have your birth time we can muscle test it!

LILITH – PLUTO Day of the Decade Alert!

18 May

What’s UP (and down) today?
Quite the Astro gig, actually:


LILITH in CAPRICORN conjunct / passing PLUTO retro today, May 18.

Ancient Sumerian Lilith Relief

 

Be in your True ‘Wild’ Nature and Essence, connect with Power-that-IS, find your Wisdom Source and Inner Elder.

It activates our intrinsic CAP themes (via Planets, AC, Houses round 20 CAP) to transform, empower, and ‘re-wild’ them (beyond social conditioning of shoulds, achievement and ‘success’).

  • How can we drop excess burden (incl. taking too much on, be in heavy guilt / fear / depression mode) while letting the energy transform into a better, clearer, simpler way of being?
  • What’s worthwhile and truly rewarding to put time and energy into? 
  • What’s been done by Nature, without your ‘heavy lifting’?

Let’s connect, cooperate with, and live from our ‘wild’ and unconditioned inner power centre and let it lead on!

So yeah, LILITH catches up, passes, and leads PLUTO only every 9 – 10 years. Last time in Jan 2009 at the very beginning of CAP. 
How have you been ‘wildly and powerfully transformed’ then, and how’s that playing out for you now, on a new level?

May 15: TAURUS New Moon ‘Delivers’ URANUS into TAU: New & Liberated EarthBody Consciousness

13 May

It’s coming, dear Astro~News Reader:

MAY 15 / 16 are not only the most powerful days in MAY but probably in Spring – since they bring several major shifts at once:

  • The New Moon in TAU – where the MOON is the strongest – representing nourishing Mother Earth energy, and food for all senses!
  • Also on the same DAY (3 1/2 hrs later), URANUS enters TAU (until Nov 6, and eventually from March 6, 2019 on).
  • And MARS enters AQ – to square URANUS on MAY 16 (their square comes about yearly but this time quite cathartically, right after BOTH Planets having move into new signs, and MARS being in the sign URANUS rules!).

 

New EARTH Consciousness.
Wake UP, Earthlings, and Collaborate!

For starters, get unstuck, says URANUS in TAU, break free and move forward (MARS squaring URANUS from AQ – the Zodiac energy ruled by URANUS!):

This square energy is SO primed for breakthroughs into new freedom.

Can you feel it?
‘Something’s’ shaking things up where energy has been stuck and unmoving, perhaps where all too much patience and waiting have generated anger, or on the flip side where inner resistance to change can’t hold on any longer.

One of the catalysts for shifts can be a collaboration (MARS in AQ) after so much heavy lifting / plodding along / taking a lot on, under MARS in CAP (since mid March) which could have also led to conflict and arguments (MARS was in square with ARIES SUN and MERCURY).
But hey, maybe you used this energy to get stuff done – great!
And now the freedom!

For the  ‘beasts of burden’ / ‘work horses’ among us, MARS in AQ shows us that in a good(!) team or community, or even ‘just’ together with one compatible(!) friend / partner the energy moves much faster and more synergistic – from a place of group intelligence beyond the sum of the individuals.

Now, mind you, if not used consciously and if too much ego (I want what I want, says MARS) gets in the way there can be also clashes and collisions that can blow up under this MARS – URANUS energy (which comes about yearly but this time quite cathartically since BOTH Planets will have just moved into new signs).

 

Dramatic Lightning through the Clouds (Photographer unknown)

 

So let’s use the shake-up combo of MARS in AQ – URANUS in TAU for conscious highlighting (like a lighting flash) and liberation of stuck energy, maybe in old ‘fossilized’ spots in the body-mind, in memories and patterns, in loyalty to genetic blueprints of the ancestors, in primal fears, triggered by traumanic events or empathy for others’….

Point is, we don’t need to know what and where it is but invoke the cosmic spirit of the Freedom Warrior (UR – MARS) that shows up now to help us shift, and then do something different ,out of the blue, out of the ‘ordinary’, spontaneously, mix up our habits, experiment, follow synchronicity, get a taste of freedom which can have cathartic domino effects.
URANUS represents the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener and the ‘higher mind’.
Flashes of insight and realization are super heightened now. Don’t (dis)miss them!

And: Experimentation, no expectation!

Try things on, see what happens. Be with friends, random strangers, groups, communities (AQ) whom you wouldn’t have done anything with before or not in a long time. See where the spirit takes you.

The combo of MARS in AQ and URANUS in TAU can also show up as breakthroughs in science, relating to the Earth and our biosphere, and perhaps some wake-up calls for humanity yet also innovations (AQ) to help sustain the Earth (TAU and CAP – with SATURN and PLUTO).
More to come with URANUS in TAU over the next 7-8 years (yes, until 2025/26)!

 

All these liberating shake-ups and wake-ups – LIFE is NOW!
..making us aware of our precious human emBODYment.

What a gift on Mother’s Day!
Gratitude to our Mothers and Fore-Mothers, and to Mother Earth!

 

 

The TAURUS New Moon on May 15 delivers reNEWed and liberated EarthBody Consciousness!

Yes, that’s where it’s at. 
Late TAU has a VIRGO undertone, and calls us to realign with what matters most, starting with health and wellness in our own body and lifestyle, and on the land we’re looking after.
Gardening and planting can be the perfect body-mind-ground wellness practice for starters, and to bring the EarthBody Consciousness right home!

That’s what I’ll do – going out with a dear friend on Wed to spend time in Nature, and get starter greens for the garden, and flowers for the balcony – yay!

 

Earth My Body!
Here’s the video of the song sung so powerfully by young Spirit Elder Nicole Sangsuree – what a legacy before her body was taken back by the Earth, in Thailand!

 

 

The New Moon end of TAU lines up in Earth trine with LILITH / PLUTO retro in CAP: 
The Ancestors and the Ancient Earth call us to do sacred work. 
And yes, it’s about the Spirit and Soul in the work we do, not the ‘heavy lifting’.
And to let our body be freed from old stuck and heavy energies, and free for being Here-Now!
En-lightened Earth Bodies.

 

Mother Nature and our inner True Nature always show: There’s New Life! And it’s growing, abundantly! This is IT!
Life affirming alignment!

 

So, here’s the ‘birth chart’ of the TAURUS NEW MOON

which will be at 4:48 am PDT on May 15:

SO much in the EARTH Element now!

There’s the NEW MOON in late TAU, MERCURY in early TAU (since today May 13), and URANUS about to enter TAU – just 3 1/2 hrs after the New Moon! 
And in solid CAP Earth: SATURN retro, LILITH / PLUTO retro – in trine with the New Moon, and, at the very end of CAP: MARS (entering AQ the same evening, to almost immediately square with URANUS on May 16).

May we wake up in our Earth Body, and find common ground on this Earth we all share, sustained by the unfathomable Ground of Being!

If you’d like to check out the rather epic AstroNews article about URANUS entering TAU – Wake UP, Earthlings! you can find it here.

WATER, through JUPITER retro in SCO in friend-ly trine with NEPTUNE in PI (active from May to Aug, exact on May 25, and once again Aug 19) flushes SO much (JUPITER in SCO) that has come up these months, releases and renews – emotional / energetic ‘Spring Cleaning’.
So, let’s be in the flow, and let it go!

 

Be well, dear Reader, be in Nature, and in your Inner Nature!

LIBRA – ARIES Easter Full Moon with ERIS / URANUS, and MARS / SATURN: Liberation and Peace in a Polarized World

30 Mar

Dear Astro~News Readers!

Let’s welcome the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon!

Not only as the March Blue Moon (second one, after March 1), and First Full Moon in Spring, heralding Easter the day after (yes, Easter is a lunar calendar festival, celebrated on the Sunday after the first Spring Full Moon)!
But also, since it brings lots of liberating shifts!

 

Young Hare, by Albrecht Duerer (original at Albertina, Vienna)

 

Surprise – surprise!
An unexpected Archetype’s ‘on board’ of the ARIES activation this month:

Not only URANUS but also ERIS (presently at 23°16’ AR) will be catalyzed by the LI – AR Full Moon (March 31) and by the New Moon in ARIES (Apr 15)!

Eris_Antikensammlung_Berlin

Eris – Antikensammlung Berlin

A befriended Astro client asked me a few days ago what my take on Eris, Sedna, and other seldomly looked-at and newly discovered Astro Archetypes is.
Which made me realize: 

It’s ERIS season again (yep, not just ARIES season). And, even more so: ERIS has been actually (perhaps overlooked but very effectively) operating for a while in ‘tandem’ with URANUS in ARIES.
Both just come out of that crazy 2 – 3 year alliance mirrored in world events.

Who / what / which Archetype is ERIS, and how does it show up now personally and societally?

ERIS, the most massive and second-largest dwarf planet known in the Solar System, was only discovered in 2005 (one of the reasons why PLUTO was demoted of its Planet status in 2006!), has an eccentric 561(!) year orbit around the SUN (more than twice as long as PLUTO), and has been almost the whole 20th and beginning of the 21st century in ARIES!

Even if you have ‘nothing in ARIES’ you do: ERIS (that’s another – personal – story, showing how you respond to / with that Archetype!)

The unevolved role of the ERIS Archetype – the Greek goddess of discord and strife is seeding separation – which we’ve seen a lot lately in humanity.
“She stirs up jealousy and envy to cause fighting and anger among men. At the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, all the gods were invited with the exception of Eris, and, enraged at her exclusion, she spitefully caused a quarrel among the goddesses that led to the Trojan War.”

Here’s where ERIS can evolve, according to Doug Walker in this excellent ERIS intro article:
“If the ERIS Archetype is developed fully, humanity may never have to experience war again. The feminine ERIS will balance the aggression of MARS. A well developed ERIS Archetype could banish all war. The ancient prophesy of swords turned into plowshares could be realized.”

May CHIRON entering ARIES (which is immanent, starting Apr 17 – until Sept 25 2018, and then fully ON from Feb 18, 2019 on until 2026 / 27 when it will meet ERIS) help with healing what makes war possible.

But realistically speaking (says SATURN in CAP now too…), we gotta start from and acknowledge where we’re at.
Has it ever been a period of discord, disruption, and seeding of separation in society over the last 2 years, esp. via the media!
The recently revealed social media scandals of sensitive private data being harvested and exploited to split the population by manipulatively feeding them back ‘news’ and intensifying what they believe in or side with in a way that could have tipped the scales for the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, and the Brexit referendum.
A prime example of large scale collective seeding of discord and separation.
Plus the huge trend of ‘disruptive technology’ which can be abused in so many ways…

As well as the crazy making U. S – North Korea conflict, scandalous school shootings in the U.S. and the heated gun control debate, and the Catalan call for independence (URANUS and ERIS have been on Barcelona’s ARIES SUN and not far from Spain’s MOON in the last years (Check out my astrological Catalunya Independence blog post) are all prime examples of ERIS at work – together with URANUS.

 

Uranian Liberation & Promethean Mercury Lead ON.

Prometheus – the Archetype of Uranus – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

The Archetype of URANUS the Awakener (shocking and rude awakenings, in this case) reflects not only (or at least not always immediately) liberation but also disruption, distortion, trauma, and in combination with ERIS (which happens once in a century only) has been highly explosive and discordant. Esp. since both are also in assertive ARIES.

May the shocking revelations (JUPITER in SCO certainly helps with that) that are coming through now lead to freedom of humanity on a higher and more conscious level!

Good to know: URANUS has now passed ERIS (their ‘hottest’ years were 2016 / 2017).
So, my sense is the shocking discordance producing scenarios might integrate, as (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity continues. People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle, based on being set up against each other anymore.

ERIS in ARIES is a strong Full Moon (March 31) and New Moon (Apr 15) catalyst.
See the Full Moon chart below.
Bringing the ERIS / URANUS low grade manifestation to the bright light of SOLAR Consciousness (the SUN is very strong in ARIES) IS a game (or rather: out-of-game) changer. Waking Up from being set up to fight / war  against ‘the other’ brings  for true URANIAN Liberation.

 

MERCURY in ARIES at the retro mid-point, connecting with the SUN on Apr 1 = Day of Enlightened Insight (for more about the whole M-r phase check out the blog post).

This certainly helps also with breakthroughs, aha effects, paradigm shifts, and mental liberation from the agitating ‘war on mind’ / mind at war with itself, and for a fresh approach.
With the MERCURY – SUN Enlightening Insight contact, a ‘New MERCURY’ (like a New Moon) is born, and the SUN (Consciousness, Spirit) is leading now, while the MERCURY (Mind) follows. This is the ‘Promethean’ phase of M-r. Prometheus is the URANUS Archetype. A liberating force. Forward-thinking, out-of the-
mind-matrix, etc.

“What and how do you Choose now newly?” asks the LIBRA FULL MOON, opposite the ARIES frenzy, and: “What brings Balance and PEACE in a Polarized World”?

 

MARS in CAP Passes Stationary (retro on Apr 17) SATURN:
Overcoming old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal control.
Moving forward, in Integrity and Inner Authority.

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

The LI – AR Full Moon links up in a sharp ‘T-Square’ with stationary SATURN (about to go retro, on Apr 17) and MARS. Now that’s quite the charge!

MARS and SATURN are the ‘outlet’ of that intense dynamic. Both strong in CAP. At best a momentum in Integrity and intrinsic Authority.

With the last New Moon, March 17, MARS, Ruler of ARIES, entered CAP – its ‘best’ position in the Zodiac (lots of energy to ‘move mountains’, and a push to persevere – in integrity), and will be in the Mountain Goat sign for a long time (basically until mid-Sept)
For more details, check out my MARS-in-CAP blog post.

Now MARS will pass SATURN (exact on Apr 2) – that’s big news, and the last massive shift catalyzed by the Full Moon!
Moving past serious authority challenges and obstacles, control, fears and resistances.
May Integrity lead the way!
And as SATURN will go retro on Apr 17 (for the first time since it entered CAP last Dec), we once again learn the lesson that true authority lays within.

Next up for MARS: A contact with LILITH, on Apr 19:
Our True Nature can’t be corrupted or controlled. Let’s move on and up from that place.

 

Here’s the chart of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon with URANUS and ERIS in AR, in T-Square to MARS – SATURN:
