‘Stormy’ URANUS in late ARIES goes direct on Jan 6: Awake and Present in the NOW.

3 Jan

Prometheus NYC

 

The New Year starts with URANian Fireworks!

Prepared by MARS having entered ARIES on DEC 31 / JAN 1…
…and on the day of / after the New MOON / Partial Solar Release Eclipse in CAP on JAN 5 / 6, URANUS goes from retro (since AUG 7, 2018) direct / forward again, on JAN 6

URANUS has been in ‘turnaround storm’ already since round the Winter Solstice – have you noticed?
When that happens, the Archetype becomes a focal point.

URANUS is the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener, bringing ‘Freedom from the Known’, or simply ‘Freedom that has no Opposite’.

‘Wild Card’ URANUS in late ARIES forms a sharp cardinal T-Square with the karmic Nodal Axis, presently in late CAP (South Node) to late CAN (North Node).

Liberation, to be authentic and free, as in:
Freedom from old burdensome heavy, taxing, systemic fear and control structures (CAP South Node, close to PLUTO) which we might have even internalized.
Freedom for being true to ourselves, taking care of our needs, being gentle, compassionate, and playfully-creative (CAN North Node) rather than productivity driven and always running out of time (CAP South Node).

Even and especially a Freedom beyond ‘from’ or ‘for’ – which is still conditional. Love this pointer by J. Krishnamurti suggesting, true Freedom is Freedom without an opposite.

With URANUS changing direction, there’s a climate of wake-up calls, unpredictability, surprises, even shocks, paradigm shifts, and out-of-the-ordinary experiences. The URANian ‘station’ and activation of its Archetype is in effect and noticeable all through JAN, activating both Eclipses on JAN 5 / 6 and JAN 20 / 21.
Re-invent yourself!
Awaken from a CAP mode of being slave to a system that eats up our time and energy, and into full-on Presence with what IS & Presence in the NOW.

URANUS is also related to erratic weather patterns, and shows when all kinds of systems are ‘out of whack’. Presently as I’m writing in my cozy home there’s a wild and intense rain storm going on outside.

 

RETRO FREE Phase!

Once URANUS goes out of retro (on JAN 6) there will be a phase without a major Planet retrograde until early MARCH (when MERCURY goes retro again) – woohoo!
A good time to start the year with outer manifestations which can accelerate quite magically these days (propelled by MARS and URANUS in ARIES).

 

URANUS will be met by MARS (every 2 years) on FEB 12 at the very end of ARIES, while CHIRON will enter ARIES on FEB 18.
Early / mid FEB can be full of erratic, rebellious, revolutionary, accelerated energy, yet also prone to momentum for Freedom. Take it easy on your nervous system, and on technology.
Channel the energy into stepping into action with something you might have had on your back burner – just do it, and give yourself permission for a liberating breakthrough. 

 

URANUS is one of the big astrological NEWS MAKERS of 2019:

On MARCH 6, URANUS will fully enter TAURUS (until 2025 / 26).
It already temporarily already ‘tried on’ TAURUS from MAY 15 – NOV 6, 2018 – see blog post Wake Up, Earthlings!
Earth Changes?

Changes in the Economy? In the monetary system?
Chances are, yes and yes and yes, and more…

And with URANUS, it’s always about expect the unexpected.

So we definitely hear more about URANUS mid-FEB and from MARCH on.
Stay tuned.

 

Check out the SUN, MOON, and Planets in Motion 2019 Overview that I posted also today – a neat reference list with URANUS and all the other ‘Cosmic Players’.
And join our 2019 Astro New Year’s Parlour on Jan 9, if you’d like to co-explore your trends in a group of like-spirited stargazers!

 

Wishing you an exciting Start into 2019!

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.

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

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers – extended to JAN 6 (Epiphany)! …to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!
Treat Time is popular as ever, and with the 2-for-1 Offer my best deal of the year.

Cuspy Full Moon in GEM – SAG (Nov 22 / 23): Voice Your Heart Truth, and Move with it!

21 Nov

Dear Astro~News Friend in Spirit Connection,

Horse Hug – Photo by my Friend Otto Heitzer

 

That’s BIG and Exciting – and many of us have been already tuning into this Massive Energy Field:
Tomorrow Thu Nov 22, the SUN follows JUPITER over the PHOENIX Point into SAG.
Thu is JupiterDay, and it’s U.S. Thanksgiving – both SO SAG / JUPITER.
The SUN / JUPITER union will follow shortly, on Sun-Day the 25th!
Gotta LOVE the Heavens-as-on-Earth alignments….!

JUPITER since (Thu!) Nov 8 in its own realm of SAG invites us to find our Heart Truth, and generously share our Spirit and Gifts with the World.

That’s not all, because the reason for the season of the ASTRO~NEWS is the FULL MOON, happening 20 hrs after the SUN’s entry into SAG.
I.o.w., the MOON will be on the first degree of GEM when exactly full.

Both SUN and MOON will be cuspy.
Plus, 5 more Zodiac cusps are activated through the Nodes, VENUS, CHIRON, and URANUS – see below, in and under the Full Moon chart.
And, we’re moving out of the fixed holding pattern, into very mutable Zodiac field across the board – as the Full Moon chart also shows:

The Nodes are freshly out of fixed AQ – LEO, and now in CAP – CAN, MARS left AQ, and is now in PI, JUPITER came out of SCO on Nov 5, after 13 months in it, the SUN follows tomorrow, and the MOON will be out of TAU in GEM just shortly before the FULL MOON.

Bottom line, lots can get unstuck now, shifting and moving, onward and upward!

…just after this almost-Full Moon that’s been very strongly fixed in TAU yesterday and today Nov 20 / 21 – bringing the deep SCO season to a ‘harvesting’ completion.
And showing us where our desires or aversions can turn into attachment that causes suffering to ourselves and others (as the Buddha teaches too…) and needs to be processed for the sake of all.


The MOON will be still in TAU for most of tomorrow Nov 22 before she ‘grows wings’ in GEM at 8:10 pm PST, just 1 1/2 hrs before the FULL MOON at 9:39 pm PST.

The early GEMINI energy has also an Alchemy flavour:

  • How does the (TAUREAN) ‘food’ (intake on all levels) ‘taste and smell’, and what’s been ‘cooking’?
  • Which fragrances do we move toward now?
  • What’s the ‘fragrance’ and what are the ‘sounds’ (literally / symbolically) that are being released through the process we’ve been in?
  • Making sounds and breathing into what’s been going on, perhaps breathing new life into what’s been stagnant and stuck can be helpful instinctual bodily and symbolic movements.
  • What are the messages and signals (GEM) of the body (TAU) we’re receiving and giving off?
  • What’s been stagnant and stuck, or ‘fermenting’ and come to fruition to find a voice now?
  • What’s growing wings now, and ready to take flight?

 


Here’s the Yin-Yang Phoenix – on top of the allegoric Gemini painting by Johfra Bosschart. 
You’ve seen it before – maybe in a new light now (under MERCURY in SAG, and in the context of the GEM – SAG Full Moon).

More and more people have found their Twin (GEM) Flame (SAG) – a theme that’s also related to this Full Moon – which may heighten the chances to connect – or re-connect (under MERCURY – ruler of GEM – now retro in SAG), if the flame is (re-)ignited through certain signals (or maybe a secret Soul Code).

 

Time to FREE things up – and see them in a new LIGHT.

  • Maybe by rising above the ‘creepy-crawly’ dimension we’ve been stuck in, burning off what doesn’t serve anymore and has fulfilled its purpose – esp. when we look at it clearly, and notice the space between us and ‘it’.
  • Maybe by honouring the dark, ‘hiding’, and holding places we’ve been in, taking us deeper than we might have chosen, but importantly so.

What helps us shift from ‘being in the dark’ to moving forward, and trusting the Journey that Life is?
What is it that ignites the Heart and Spirit in these seasonably darkest times (in our Northern hemisphere)? 
What can we trust, and move forward and through the dark days with?

 

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –Painting by Johfra Bosschart

The SAG Hermit carries his Soul light lantern – always shedding light on the path right in front of him…
Reminds me of a quote:

“Qu: How do I know whether I’m on the right path?
A: Just look down where your feet are.”
(must have been coined by a SAG – CAP person…. ).

The SAG Centaur (according to a mythological story the transcended ‘Wounded Healer’ CHIRON) is the embodied connection of Animal (an animal with a Big Heart that-is!) with Conscious Human, shooting the arrow ignited / fueled by Zeus’s (JUPITER’s) thunderbolt to the Heavens. 
Animal – Human – Divine, in ONE.

A simple formula / reminder for the SAG Spirit.
The inner Heart Fire is the Divine Ignition, that carries us forward, and our Spirit into the World….
Maybe – quite often actually – the result / in the context of what’s called a ‘Healing Journey’
(which may continue… it doesn’t need to have a destination).

 

Let’s take a look at the FULL MOON chart!

The MOON will be culminating in her Fullness at 9:39 pm PST tomorrow Nov 22 (12:39 am EST on Nov 23).

See the SUN / JUPITER alignment on the ‘Phoenix Point’ in early SAG? 
The two biggest bodies of the Solar System aligned in that area of the heavens – what a gravitation! Where you see the SUN these days is also JUPITER.

It’ll takes the SUN 3 days after the Full Moon to catch up with and pass JUPITER (on Nov 25 / 26). 
From then on JUPITER will rise again before the SUN (call it ‘New JUPITER‘). We won’t see JUPITER in the early morning for a while yet, though.
Yet, it’s a Solar initiation of JUPITER into SAG – in case you haven’t noticed the ‘Phoenix’ / SAG energy so strongly yet in the last weeks.
May we rise in Spirit, Heart guided and with clear seeing!

Not far from SUN / JUPITER:
MERCURY, now retro a bit further in early SAG, is being in this first half of M-r ‘lassoed in’, to meet and go behind the SUN next Tue Nov 27 = ‘Day of Enlightened Insight’ aka ‘New MERCURY‘.

The first half of M-r (since Nov 16) a.k.a. Epimethean phase can (esp. in SAG) bring out ‘old and told stories and beliefs’ which are coming to the forefront of the mind – only for us to acknowledge them for what they’ve meant, and how they might have made sense in the context of the past.
But we’re outgrowing them, inevitably, as we’re finding deep Inner Truth and Freedom.

I.o.w., so much Phoenix Rebirth Energy nowadays… 
When you feel stuck in the ‘Labour’ or ‘Birth Canal’ of it trust the process. This too shall move!
And with the consciousness of the Old we can’t quite perceive of the new and lighter yet. It’ll look differently on the other side.

 

What’s with all the Zodiac Cusps being activated?

 

  • The PHOENIX Point – as of tomorrow on the SAG side! – , with the SUN (enters SAG on Nov 22 at 1:01 am PST), JUPITER, and MERCURY retro.
    Shifts with the ‘New JUPITER’ and ‘New MERCURY’ over the next week, as in:
    Rebirth of Spirit, and of a clear seeing Heart-Mind.

    MERCURY retro will go again over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into late SCO from Dec 1 – 12, to dive into deeper motives and magical zones (SCO) that inspire us (SAG).

 

  • The South Node is now at the end of CAP, while the North Node is at the end of CAN. 

    The Nodal Axis shifted recently, on Nov 16
    , with the Lunar South Node (SN) on the CAP / AQ ‘Society/ System / Witnessing Point’ (aka ‘Prometheus Point’= the Rebel / Innovator bringing the Fire of Freedom to Humanity, another story….) and Lunar North Node (NN) on the ‘Creativity Point’ (CAN / LEO).

    The ‘air can get thin’, and it can get icy, cold, and lonely, on top of the mountain where we understand and witness…

    We’ve reached an imbalance of overly ‘watching / witnessing’ (AQ / CAP) – perhaps immature narcissistic ‘drama queens and drama kings’ playing out their unresolved childhood stuff (CAN / LEO), and giving them / this stuff energy through attention while getting drained – and it gets old. This imbalance needs to shift.
    Otherwise not-so-great CAP effects
    (feeling heavy, burdened, depressed, judgmental, resentful…) can easily kick in – symptoms showing something’s out of balance.

    How about stepping away, and unplugging from this position (should you have put yourself into it), incl. the over-engagement with watching other people in a way that’s ‘sensationally’ tempting but drains your energy?
    Social media doesn’t help / is part of the problem, esp. if it’s a substitute that replaces social engagement with real people in a lonely ‘plugged-in modern world’ that just reinforces the system.

    And how about instead – with the freed-up energy – playing and being creative (CAN – LEO NN) like / with the Inner Child?!
    And dancing as if nobody or everybody watches (what’s the difference – if you’re childlike?)?
    Because you can, and because you care. Because taking care of your needs gives you new energy you can bring into the picture with others.
    Yep, a fresh cuspy shift right there.

 

  • MARS is now freshly in early PISCES (Nov 15 – Dec 31) encourages us to go with the flow, surf the cosmic waves, adapt to the energies that come up, ride them out, and channel ‘action’ into release, relax, and letting go….
    Ha, esp. in the Holiday craze – excellent antidote to otherwise Piscean ‘Tsunami’ overwhelm – beware of that one, take it easy, and be in the flow.

 

  • CHIRON presently retro is in late PISCES – moved back over the ‘Emergence Point’ from ARIES where it’s been since mid-April until end of Sept, and is now back in late PI until Feb 18, 2019. A ‘CHIRON-ic Immersion’ for its last phase in PI (where it’s been since 2010 / 2011).
    CHIRON will go out of retro on Dec 8 – a stationary focal point in the first half of Dec, pointing us to what the oceanic immersive, reconnective, and regenerative ‘Medicine’ is for / in us that changes our vibration and helps with a fresh genuine presence.
    Remember, CHIRON in ARIES offers the Medicine of being the Authentic YOU.

 

  • URANUS retro is also backtracking nowadays, for one more phase at the end of ARIES where it’s been since 2011.
    URANUS has already ‘shaken up’ and awakened TAURUS (doing its job as the Archetype of the Awakener) as in: Us Earthlings, in relation to Mother Earth, and to our sensate body, mid-2018.
    URANUS on the TAU side of the ‘Settling Point’ has been obviously rather un-settling, yet helping us be free from dullness, stagnation, comfort traps, attachment, complacency, and for a new way of embodying Spirit.
    Now back in ARIES, URANUS brings fresh Spirit of experimentation to how we show up.
    Just do it, says ARIES, and be alive, new, and in the NOW.
    URANUS will go out of retro = direct again on Jan 6, the day after the CAP New MOON / a Partial Solar Eclipse, on Jan 5.
    Hence end of Dec to mid-Jan will be quite Uranian, bringing wake-up calls and paradigm shifts.

 

  • VENUS in late LIBRA – post her retro journey in Fall, and now re-newed as the ‘Morning Star’ Goddess / Divine Feminine – helps us choose, and engage relationally (LIBRA), based on our intrinsic values.
    VENUS will once again on Dec 2
     (already happened this Fall, due to her retro journey) dive over the ‘Tipping Point’ cusp into SCO where she’ll dwell until Jan 7 / 8.
    So yeah, make a choice that’s a good match and don’t be afraid of the magic and change it brings.
    VENUS on the ‘Tipping Point’ will oppose URANUS on the ‘Settling Point’ once again (# 3 of 3) on Fri (VenusDay!) Nov 30.
    The freedom of choice…

 

  • The FULL MOON on the TAU – GEM cusp which I call ‘BodyTalk Point’ or ‘Voice Point’ calls us to respond to the messages and signals of the body, and give a voice to what’s been ‘sitting there’.
    Asking good questions helps….
    As does following the Path of the Heart that SAG points us to so strongly now…

 

 

Sending Love, Light, and Joy – on your Path, and in the Cosmic Dance!

Experiment with the New YOU! URANUS retro re-enters ARIES (Nov 6 – March 6, 2019)

4 Nov

Prometheus, the Greek hero associated with the Planet URANUS, capturing the fire of spirit and creative inventiveness from the Gods for Humanity.

One last phase of URANUS in ARIES is coming up over the Winter, before it finally ‘lands’ in TAURUS next March – until 2026!

Experimental URANUS has tried on TAU this year for exactly 6 lunar months, since the DAY of the the New Moon in TAU (May 15), and on the day before SCO New Moon (Nov 7) it will retract from the Taurean realm.
What an amazing alignment – ‘just like that’…!

URANUS has been in ARIES since March 2011 – and is usually 7 1/2 years in a Zodiac sign.
This ARIES ‘wrap-up phase’ at the very end of the fiery ‘initiator’ / ‘instigator’ Archetype can stimulate accelerated newness, esp. technology and start-ups
(yep, we’ve already seen so much of that during UR in AR), innovative experimentation, and a bold ‘get the ball rolling’ initiatives, as well as unprecedented momentum to think and live outside the box / Matrix.

BE fresh and new and in the Awake NOW that has no comparison.
The New YOU is where it’s at.

 

Next UP for URANUS retro in ARIES this season:

 

  • On Nov 30, VENUS, freshly out of retro (from Nov 16 on) at the end of LIBRA (on the ‘Tipping Point’) will oppose URANUS (for the 3rd time that-is, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) just last week, on Oct 31, with VENUS retro, again from early SCO.
    Wow, triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) – that sounds like there’s been unfinished business between the Love Goddess and the Liberator.
    When we truly love ourselves and come from the Consciousness of Love (SUN – VENUS / ‘New VENUS’ being activated via VENUS retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others to be free.
    Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.

 

  • URANUS retro in late ARIES squares the Lunar Nodes in late CAP (SN) – late CAN (NN) from mid-Nov to mid-Dec, exact Dec 2 / 3.
    A rare triple cuspy T-square, with URANUS on the ‘Settling Point’, the South Node on the ‘Collaboration / Systems / Society Point’, and the North Node on the ‘Creativity / Inner Child / Playfulness Point’.
    What can this add up to?
    Tension between a (perhaps old pattern of) investing too much energy into group efforts that aren’t really ‘cutting it’ (perhaps you’re taking too much on, or are with groups or part of a society run by on old ‘operating systems’
    ) – while fresh energy is coming in and welcoming you to be creative, loving, playful, and (self) caring in new ways.
    Sometimes it takes a liberating paradigm shift…
    JUPITER from the SAG side of the ‘Phoenix Point’ trining the North Node supports you in being on your uplifting path and in your Truth.

 

  • On Feb 3, 2019, VENUS at the end of SAG goes into Fire Trine with URANUS (by then direct again) in ARIES, and on Feb 13, MARS at the end of ARIES meets and passes URANUS.
    Very adventurous and uplifting energies.
    The MARS / URANUS connection in MARS’s ruled sign can unleash quite erratic and unpredictable, at best liberating breakthrough energies. Viva la Revolution!

 

Wishing you a liberating, rebirthing Uranian season!

Che Guevara 90: Born Revolutionary Hero

14 May

SO, on this day would be Che Guevara’s 90th birthday!
Yes, only – he was born on May 14, 1928 and died at age 39!

Feliz Cumpleanos, Che Ernesto!

On an epic journey in Cuba in Feb 2012 with a friend, Che’s charismatic revolutionary icon was omnipresent, and of course we also visited Santa Clara – the town of the decisive battle of the Cuban Revolution in 1958 where he’s most prominently immortalized.

We weren’t even aware at the time that it would have been the year of Che’s URANUS Return (for everyone at age 84) – full circle of the planet of Revolution and Liberation.

No surprise that URANUS features prominently in Che’s chart.
Goes to show how distinctly Astrology points to the Archetypes, in ‘bigger than life’ people’, and in all of us. 

Check out Che’s birth chart here.
Ironically, there’s also a controversy around his birth date being May 14 or June 14, 1928. In the museum, I found the date May 14 verified and took a note (I believe it was even the birth certificate), and that’s what the usually very reliable Swiss astro.com has too. Vamos!

Here it is again:

 

  • URANUS right on his AC in early ARIES and chart ruler MARS right ‘behind’, in universal PISCES in the 12th – born revolutionary and freedom fighter on behalf of ‘the whole’. Self sacrificing, charismatic, iconic, bigger than life. Expressing the ‘Zeitgeist’ and being a force for change.
  • His URANUS / AC is also in square with his MC in CAP which is ruled by SATURN retro in SAG with his South Node in the 9th House: On a mission to ‘disrupt’ (as we nowadays say), challenge, and overthrow a system / establishment that ‘didn’t work for him’ (SATURN retro) with a clear alternative vision and direction.
  • Something in him gave him intrinsic authority and leadership, independent of age (SATURN retro – his only retro planet – with his SN). Well, his youthful / forever young warrior spirit (ARIES / URANUS / MARS Rising, and SATURN in SAG) was so iconic throughout.
  • His job astrologically / life map wise was to communicate his revolutionary philosophy into understandable ways that people would resonate with – which would create a huge wave (SN / SATURN in his 9th House in SAG, NN / MERCURY in GEM in his 3rd, and the PISCES MOON in his 12th House squaring the Nodal Axis). And yes, giving the collective, the needs of the people (MOON in PI in the 12th House) a thrust for freedom (MARS in late PI to URANUS in AR) expressed directly through his presence, his life. 
  • And a big dynamic, assertive presence that-is: JUPITER in AR in the 1st House too.
  • Very dynamically charismatic and popular way beyond his life, via the square from his TAURUS SUN square NEPTUNE in LEO.

 

And guess what the Sabian Symbol for Che’s MERCURY in GEM (close to his karmic North Node) is?

GEMINI 5°: “A REVOLUTIONARY MAGAZINE ASKING FOR ACTION.

KEYNOTE: The explosive tendency of repressed feelings and root emotions.

Every movement overstressing one direction calls forth in time an equally extreme movement in the opposite direction. This is particularly true at the level of the dualistic mind symbolized in the zodiac by Gemini. What is rigidly bound in form and convention tends to explode into formlessness. It may do so violently if socially oppressed — through revolution — or at the psychological level in psychosis; or it may withdraw inwardly into the mystical state in which one identifies with an unformulatable Reality.

This fifth stage is related to the first, for it is the experience of a world of being so far unperceived by the everyday consciousness which starts the process. In the same sense a psychedelic experience may momentarily make the mind transparent to a non-ego-structured realm of consciousness, and may lead to a sustained attempt at understanding what has been revealed of a transcendent Reality. Whether the revolutionary action is violent or peaceful, bitterly resentful or loving, the one desire is TO REACH BEYOND ESTABLISHED FORMS.”

 

What a day to commemorate the revolutionary spirit, since tomorrow – just after the New Moon URANUS will enter TAURUS and be squared by MARS, freshly entered into Freedom for All oriented AQ on the day after!

Viva la Revolution!
Freedom from within – unconditionally!

And: The Power of Love leads the Evolution, and the Revolution of the Heart.
Freedom to BE!

ARIES New Moon with URANUS, MERCURY Turnaround & CHIRON Entering ARIES: Breakthrough into the Authentic YOU!

14 Apr

Dear Astro~News Readers,

The energies from the pre-Easter Full Moon are getting turned up another notch – or a few:

You MUST feel this already – at least ‘in the making’ (as in: New Moon)!
Tomorrow’s New Moon in late ARIES comes with URANUS, and brings a liberating Firework:
Freedom from… Freedom for… and ‘simply’:

Freedom to be Authentically YOU!

Whatever is in the way, like polarization splits a la ERIS in ARIES (see my recent post for the Full Moon on March 31, with ERIS involved) is being recognized for what it is, and gets busted right on the spot.

No need to ‘assert or defend yourself’ (which is also an ARIES energy but always implies an ‘against’).
Simply be YOU! Says liberating URANUS, right next to the New Moon.

Which can perhaps look like this:
Being consciously (SUN) emotionally (MOON) free (URANUS).
Feeling it coming big time?

Imagine…
If more and more of us wake up and step into LIFE (ARIES) with this Power? It can have massive effects on our lives, onto society, humanity, and our Life on Earth.

I’d say this Spirit is pushing so strongly now to come alive that there’s no more holding back or regressing. 
Also catalyzed by MERCURY and CHIRON, wrapping round the ‘Emergence’ / “Come Alive” Point from PI to AR!

MERCURY is now stationary in early ARIES – going out of retro tomorrow Apr 15 – about 16 1/2 hrs before the NEW MOON:
How have you come to more authenticity in your conscious thinking and communication?
Maybe you caught yourself in old conditioned / fearful / fake / ‘strategic’ / pleasing-oriented inauthentic patterns in this MERCURY Retro phase since March 22, questioned this, and tried on a new approach? Ha, or ‘simply’ something authentic ‘escaped you’ and brought out what you really think. 🙂
Maybe you noticed that when you speak-as-you-are things flow, you come alive, and people really only meet you for real.
Thaaank you, MERCURY Retro!
More about MERCURY below 🙂

 

CHIRON is about to ‘Come Alive’ & enter ARIES on Apr 17!

…with stationary MERCURY as a ‘midwife’
For a try-on / preview phase until Sept 25, when it re-immerses itself into PISCES. And then from Feb 18, 2019 on, the full-on emergence of ARIES Medicine will show up.

All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
The Medicine is to be Authentically YOU!
Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 
Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (and ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about this state of Being.
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart.

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our…

Special ASTRO Medicine Parlour:
CHIRON Enters ARIES
The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!

Coming Monday Apr 16
Afternoon and Evening Group to choose from.

 

Let’s take a look at the ARIES NEW MOON chart…

…and see which other Archetypes show up now, reminding us to let their energies enliven us!
The ARIES NEW MOON will be exact at 6:57 pm PDT tomorrow, Apr 15.

 

Boom! There’s URANUS right next to the SUN and MOON Union in late ARIES.

URANUS has finally passed ERIS (their connection happened over the last 2 years, 2016 / 17. See the blog post for the last Full Moon, describing the theme – disruptive, shock and awe, ‘splitting’ and polarizing effects.

Their combined energy has been (well, one facet of it!) erratic, unpredictable, volatile (“You never know what comes next!”) which could have kept us on adrenaline / alert mode – and has also been used and ‘worked’ by ‘power players’.

Yet, on a higher vibrational mode (hey, good reminder: Astro Awareness is all about Raising your Vibration and be free – in my world anyway 🙂 ), it’s been a shake and wake-up call for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues that are up for transformation (PLUTO in CAP).
The Power is IN You.

As the shocking discordance producing scenarios are being integrated the (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity emerges big time now.
We the People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle anymore that’s based on being set up against each other.


The NEW MOON just past ERIS and approaching URANUS (the MOON unites with URANUS on Apr 15 / 16, and the SUN on Apr 18) is a strong momentum towards Conscious Breakthrough and Freedom.

The ARIES NEW MOON with URANUS is unaspected (stands by itself without a link to other Planets) – that really stands out too!
This dynamic has ‘a life of its own’, which could manifest as ‘being in the closet’. But not for too long, with URANUS:
Liberation is ready to be released!

 

‘Winged Messenger’ MERCURY at the Beginning of ARIES 

…freshly out of retro (at 2:21 am PDT = 16 1/2 hrs before the NM).

Hope you’ve also had lots of paradigm shifts of / from the mind, with MERCURY retro, while URANUS the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY (still) also in ARIES, on a transpersonal dimension has been rattling us to wake up.

MERCURY is now in post-retro ‘storm’ in its ‘U-turn’ from retro to direct – a re-adjustment time (like a ‘reverse culture shock’ which can happen when we come back from a re-treat to our ‘known’ environment). Let’s give it a week or so to integrate.

The ‘storm’ (MERCURY moving very slowly in forward gear) goes technically until Apr 24, followed by the post-retro shadow until May 4 (when it goes over the Zodiac degree zone which it went retro from = 17° AR).
A good time to process and start to act on ARIES Retro themes that have come up, a la “Back to the Beginning!”:

  • Did M-r re-connect you with people from the ‘beginnings’ when you started things / when you were new in town / in your work…?
  • Did it bring that spirit back?
  • Was that refreshing and re-inspiring, to bring you back to a ‘Beginner’s Mind’ approach?
  • Or did it show you (ha, the CAP contrast that also came up – MERCURY in triple square with SATURN): “Been there, done that. That was me in the beginning, Now with all my experience however…” (a fine line between being realistic and judge-mental).

Mainly, it’s about Authenticity and Origin-ality, with M-r in ARIES.

The stationary MERCURY invites CHIRON over from PISCES into ARIES: Being YOU is the Medicine!

MERCURY and CHIRON (only 5 degrees apart from each other, wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point cusp from PI to AR) are also unaspected. What brings you ‘back to life’? It’s YOUR Life.

 

Who else shows up for the ARIES New Moon Party?

As you see in the chart, there’s lots of cardinal activation in the New Moon and beyond: (Soon CHIRON), MERCURY, the SUN / MOON, URANUS, SATURN, MARS, LILITH, and PLUTO are all in cardinal signs, actually only two of the four: ARIES and CAPRICORN:

What are you initiating (AR), and where do you show up in leadership and integrity (CAP) – without taking too much on or becoming a scapegoat?!

 

Vibrant Country Goat

MARS in CAPRICORN having passed SATURN (Apr 2) will unite with LILITH on Apr 19 and with PLUTO on Apr 26!
A MARS activation happens only every 2 years.

MARS in CAP is a ‘kicker’ for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP, but also for the ARIES, CANCER, and LIBRA sides in us which aren’t by nature accomplishment oriented but can use a boost (inner / outer Spring clearing and ‘reno’ anyone?).

Check out my Astro~News blog for MARS in CAP 2018.

  • With MARS past SATURN, have you noticed (since early April) a shift to leave obstacles, frustrations, fears, shoulds, expectations, limitations behind and move on anyway?
    A challenge perhaps yet going ahead, with ‘right action’ is what matters.
    Congrats on the MARS – SATURN front!
  • Now as MARS meets LILITH this coming week, go with / come from what’s natural for and in you. Work with your time and resources (what you’re naturally good at, and what you have access to) , which is powerful and transformational (MARS / PLUTO – coming up end of the month!).
    Let Being in Your True Nature express itself. Work with your strengths, and be in your power.

 

Back to SATURN:
The ‘Ringed One’ is also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro on 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.

 

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose…
PLUTO in CAP 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 go retro this month
(which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS, and LILITH 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 power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

JUPITER this year in (PLUTO ruled) SCORPIO helps with revelations of what used to be under cover, hidden, taboo, in the closet – to evoke a change for the better.
With JUPITER presently (until July 10) retro it’s time to re-visit certain ‘dark corners’ that might look scary yet are important to clear, process, and transform.

 

VENUS now in TAU is about to go into opposition with JUPITER in SCO – (also on Apr 17): Enjoying this precious human embodiment with all our sense perceptions comes with seeing the bigger picture (JUPITER) of impermanence and change (SCO).

VENUS – JUPITER connect with the Planetary Archetypes in CAP, namely: MARS / LILITH / PLUTO:
How can we work with this human dilemma and tension (the joy of being alive vs. the changefulness) without engaging in attachment and suffering, in a ‘simple’, deep and mature way?
Maybe starting with some acts of voluntary simplicity (phew, can be applied in so many ways…).

Epiphanies and Liberation

6 Jan

Hi dear Astro~News Reader!

Have you noticed? Lots of things come into motion these days, and wake-up calls lead to breakthroughs!
Dynamic start-up energies with URANUS going direct again (since Jan 2) in ARIES kick us out of old conditioning.
WAKE UP, People!
Time to give ourselves permission to Break Free from old, heavy, slow, conditioned consciousness, and into liberated initiatives.

 

prometheus

Show up authentically, get started, and BE YOU!

With a liberated consciousness Synchronicities and Epiphanies happen!

And since there’s NO Planet retrograde now, until early March it’s an excellent phase for dynamic manifestation, and for building based on vision and integrity (SATURN out of SAG, and now in CAP).

Picture above:
Prometheus bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

 

Magi Star

 

 

Today Jan 6 MERCURY in late SAG (Galactic Ctre) goes into FIRE trine with URANUS stationary in late AR, and squares CHIRON in late PI (#3 of 3 in the retro and post-retro phase):
Gazing into the Eye of the Divine, vast and unfathomable. What can be said???

Deeper understanding of what frees and heals us, and helps release old ‘stories’ and beliefs.

Jan 6 is Epiphany in the Christian calendar – ‘Astrologers’ / Magi Day’ –
Time for all of us to See the Light, and Follow the Star!

‘Stormy’ URANUS in late ARIES goes from retro to direct on Jan 2: Awake and Present in the NOW.

1 Jan

 

Prometheus NYC

‘Golden Boy’ Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt. Prometheus the Awakener is the Archetype related to the Planet Uranus!

 

Besides the SuperSuper FULL MOON on Jan 1 /2, the New Year also starts with URANian Fireworks!

URANUS has been in ‘turnaround storm’ already throughout Dec (we were just so focused on MERCURY’s retro trip….).
When that happens, the Archetype becomes a focal point.

URANUS is the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener, bringing ‘Freedom from the Known’, or simply ‘Freedom that has no Opposite’.

 ‘Wild Card’ URANUS in late ARIES has been unaspected under the New Year’s  SuperSuper FULL MOON….
The CANCER MOON will go into square with it on Jan 2, as well as into Water Trine with CHIRON in late PI (also unaspected presently), which can bring instability, yet also beautiful miracles and synchronicities, and shakes things up in a healing way.


On the same day, URANUS goes from retro (since early Aug 2017) direct / forward from Earth perspective.
Fires early Aug, icy temperatures now, here on the North American continent…
URANUS is related to weather patterns and systems – shows when systems are ‘out of whack’.

Definitely room for wake-up calls, unpredictabilities, surprises, even shocks (there’s been a wave of those in the news lately…), and out-of-the-ordinary experiences.
Yet also and foremost, an Awakening from our daily ‘slumber mode’, and into full-on Presence with what IS. Presence in the NOW.

URANUS is one of the big news makers of 2018:
It will (temporarily) change signs (only every 7 years), and go from ARIES (since 2011) into TAURUS, on May 15 until Nov 6, 2018).
On March 6, 2019, URANUS will fully enter TAURUS (until 2025 / 26).

What’s that about?
Earth Changes?
Changes in the Economy? In the monetary system?
Chances are, yes and yes and yes.

And with URANUS, it’s always about expect the unexpected.

So we definitely hear more about URANUS in Spring.
Stay tuned.

 

Check out the SUN, MOON, and Planets in Motion 2018 Overview that I posted on Dec 31 – a neat reference list!
And join our 2018 Astro New Year’s Parlour on Jan 4, if you’d like to co-explore your trends in a group of like-spirited stargazers!

 

Retro Free Phase!

And once URANUS goes out of retro (on Jan 2) there will be a phase without a major Planet retrograde until early March (JUPITER) and end of March (MERCURY) – woohoo!
A good time to start the year with outer manifestations which can accelerate quite magically these days (propelled by URANUS in ARIES).

 

Wishing you an exciting Start into 2018!
