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!

New Year’s SuperSuper FULL MOON in CAN – CAP on Jan 1/2: Nurturing through the Winter…

31 Dec

Happy New Year, dear Astro Friends!

Initiated by the New Year’s Eve Sirius Culmination, and:

The Super-Super (closest to Earth in 2018) Full Moon in her very own CANCER Abode….

The Full Moon will be exact at 6:24 pm PST (Moonrise!) on Jan 1, 2018.
In Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania it will be on Jan 2, 2018.

Lighting up the Night Sky of the New Year like a lantern that shows us the way Home!

A.k.a. The Wolf Moon – the name of the January Full Moon when wolves were howling around villages.

 

What nurtures us?
How do we emotionally nurture Ourselves, our Children, our Inner Child, our Family / Tribe?
How do we feel and give a sense of Belonging?
Where’s HOME?

Nurturing through the COLD, finding emotional and physical comfort and resources is actually a big deal these days in Canada, with extreme temperature drops and wind chill effects of down to -30 degrees, in AB, Central and Eastern Canada, as well as the U.S. East Coast.

So yeah, even though we made it through the shortest days of the year, Winter  & CAPRICORN has only just begun, on Dec 21.

 

Call of the Mountain – Photo by Melanie, Dec 31, 2017

 

How do we balance the contrasting themes of warm, cuddly, and caring CANCER with LOTS of heavy duty CAPRICORN Energy (which you can see in the chart below)?

  • SATURN, the Ruler of CAP – freshly arrived (Dec 19/20), and dwelling in the mountainous region of CAP until Dec 17, 2020!
    A rewarding incentive for us to ‘step up’ and be / do what we’re best at (no need to waste our time and energy on what’s futile and not ‘the real thing’, and no need to feel guilty, nor to judge what we don’t want to see, rather to model the Best and the Change (PLUTO).
  • LILITH – having entered CAP on Nov 8, 2017, and taking a walk on the Wild Side there until Aug 5, 2018. Being in our unconditioned (un-restrained) Nature brings out our Best.
  • VENUS and the SUN, presently pleasantly united in CAP (exact Jan 8):
    Appreciation for quality, and for what matters most. and finally:
  • Good ole PLUTO who’s in CAP for the long haul, until 2023, to make sure CAP goes through its deep change and Evolution. I.o.w., done with wasteful and abusive human behaviour. We need to step up to the plate, live more simply (doesn’t mean deprivation), with quality instead of quantity, and sustainably.

 

Here’s the Chart of the New Year’s Full Moon!

The FULL MOON Alignment is quite JOY-FULL, with both the MOON and SATURN happy in their natural Zodiac energies, AND the Full Moon Axis is supported by a ‘Grand Mid-Water Trine’ of

  • The Super-Super MOON in CANCER (big Baby Belly energy) – very nurturing, showing us where / how we feel a sense of belonging, and how our needs are being met.
    Check out where mid-CANCER is in your chart (House, Planets there…?) for extra Astro hints…
  • MARS / JUPITER very close to each other (exactly aligned on Jan 6 – every 2 years) in deep and mysterious SCORPIO (which MARS likes, and ‘used to’ rule, before PLUTO came along, and claimed its underworld domain – MARS is still co-ruler). 
    MARS / JUPITER give a lot of energy, esp. for ‘bravely’ diving into depth, intimacy, inner processing, research, and anything that benefits from change through going to the core of things.
  • NEPTUNE in PISCES – also ‘at home’ there: 
    Going with the flow, taking it easy, releasing the old (year, stagnant energy, you name it) with love, and breathing in ‘fresh oxygen’, and anything that we resonate with. Being compassionate.

The Grand Water Trine is in the centre of the Water signs – which has an extra magical, transformational SCORPIO effect.

Also, a rare configuration lines the Grand Water Trine up with the Full Moon axis to a Kite – with the ‘head’ pointing to SUN / VENUS in CAP, and the MOON being the ‘tail’ of it. Or you may call it an airplane, with SUN / VENUS in the cockpit. 
This is a very stable figure, supporting us with leading (head / CAP) from integrity and maturity / the Inner Elder, motivated by nurturing and care, and sense of belonging.

How can this look like?
Feeling deeply, and reaching into our core, which makes us take good care of our Inner Child.
Keeping things simple and fulfilling, noticing that a lot of our ‘needs’ are compensations.
Helping make the World a better place, for our children, for future generations, for animals, for any Being that we deeply care for.

 

Bottom line:
HOME is BIG for the Full MOON in homey CANCER, and at home there, plus MARS, SATURN, and NEPTUNE also in their respective astrological home / comfort zone where they operate well.
Of course, our friend SATURN in CAP likes this:
Everything (a lot) where / how it works best.

 

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!

 

‘Stormy’ URANUS goes from retro to direct on Jan 2!

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

 

‘Wild Card’ URANUS in late ARIES is unaspected in the Full Moon chart.

The CANCER MOON will go into square with it on Jan 2, and also into Water Trine with CHIRON in late PI (also unaspected presently), which can bring instability, yet also 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…
URANUS is related to weather patterns and systems – shows when systems are ‘out of whack’.


URANUS has been in ‘turnaround storm’ already in Dec (we were just so focused on MERCURY….). 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’.
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, mid-May until early Nov).

The next FULL MOON, on Jan 31 – a ‘Blue Moon’ since it’s the second Moon in one calendar month – will be also a ‘SuperMoon’ and:
A TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in LEO – AQ!


We feel its effects throughout January:

The best of LEO energy is supported, with the North Node in LEO (Apr 2017 – Nov 2018):
Love Yourself, Love Life, Love the World.
Live Life Lovingly.
Lead from your Strength.|
Share Generously.
Show your Colours… from the Heart!

 

Wishing you a fulfilling New Year 2018!
Guided by Starlight and Heart Light!

End of LIBRA NEW MOON opposite URANUS: Diving into the Alchemy of Life! Awakening into the always-New & Free Self.

19 Oct

The LIBRA NEW MOON this year is only 3 days before the SUN enters SCO.

We’ve been experiencing a series of New Moons at the end of a Zodiac sign, since the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21 – on the very last degree of LEO.
The pattern continues until the end of the year. The SAG New Moon will be on Dec 17.

This is the New Moon following the Super VIRGO New Moon opposite CHIRON on Sept 19 which carried a lot of complex, nervous, and overwhelming energy, and was a call for flexibility in integrity.
How has your lunar month been???

Seems like more than a month has passed, since it was packed and loaded.
And we’re in a whole different season now…
So yeah, today Oct 19 at 12:12 pm PDT was the LI New Moon – on the cusp to SCO.
Please find its ‘birth chart’ below.
The transition from LI to SCO is a ‘Tipping Point’ energy (the scales tip, and choices lead to change) and also an  ‘Alchemy Point’ (‘ingredients’ of experiences may come together, and encounters with people may deeply touch us, and have transformational effects on us).
Falling in Love, Falling into Fall, Dying to the old Self and immersing into the Change….

 

What’s the MAGIC and ALCHEMY you’re stepping, falling, or diving into, these extreme and emotionally intense times?

Maybe you’ve come to a point where you say:
NO more playing games and strategizing, no more presenting yourself to others in a ‘convenient’ and conventional way to not rock the boat, no more compromising and compensating…
While deep inside (or barely under the surface) the authentic YOU is SO ready to be born / reborn (URANUS in ARIES) and LIVE.

  • What would ‘tip the scales’ of choices for you?
  • What’s the paradigm shift that’s about to happen now, or has already happened for you, that sets you FREE?

Maybe you’re done with inner relationship contracts (a LIBRAN thing) with self absorbed, overly dramatic, narcissistic, toxic (you name it) people in your life (in personal relationships, and ‘even’ with famous people ‘out there’ in public).
Don’t blame them and self-victimize, can’t change them. What do they mirror you?
We have to change from within. Themes around change are so BIG, and there are so many opportunities now – MERCURY / JUPITER both now in SCO.
See ‘Taboo Talk’ blog post from Oct 17.

Sometimes, the issues have to get big (JUPITER) to change (SCO).
Perhaps a theme of the whole JUPITER-in-SCO year (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018).

Through our deep inner change (SCO), the World we perceive (JU) changes. 
Disclaimer: This is not a call for a rose coloured spiritual bypassing, rather for a deeper immersion, and intimacy with Life that might appear scary at first.

 

This NEW MOON in LIBRA is in a sense like a FULL MOON, because of its polarity with URANUS in ARIES.

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

 

Lots of tension, polarization, upset, tragedy and turmoil is going on these days (I don’t need to tell you, it’s everywhere…). Scary and unsettling indeed, yet it’s also deeply moving time that brings us fully into the moment (ARIES).

I had my mini share of acute URANian intervention these days:
The internet wasn’t working yesterday and today – made me once again realize how dependent we all are on the umbilical cable / wireless connection. And I couldn’t get to the blog either for that matter.
After a few diy attempts, calls to my internet company, a phase of being really nervous, since one technician said it’s an issue with my computer, and asked whether it’s still on warranty!, mutual Scorpionic detective work with a competent technician lady (didn’t give up, called again – LIBRA kicked in: finding a good ‘match’ in her), in the end, re-setting the router did the job.
If you don’t have an assigned technician and deal with who’s randomly on the other end it’s a hit and miss – and self-education along the line…
Ok, URANUS definitely brought me into the acuteness of the moment here.
Meditation and smudging during the New Moon time (before calling ‘the right person’) helped with inner and space reset. Seems like I was guided to intuitively do the right things…

So yeah, thank you for your patience with the AstroNews delivery!!!

I just researched, and found that since URANUS has been in ARIES (March 11, 2011), there have been LIBRA NEW MOONs exactly opposite URANUS every 2 years:
2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017 – today – wow!
The whole URANUS in ARIES phase since 2011 has been a series of wake-up calls (URANUS entered into ARIES on the day when the Fukushima catastrophy happened), and a mass Awakening of Humanity, politically / societally, and spiritually.

When URANUS goes into relationship with a New MOON in LIBRA peace, balance, and harmony can be quite disrupted and even shattered.
On another level, True Freedom, Awakening and Liberation is ripe to be brought into the realm of relatedness – which would show up in areas of life related to the LI – AR axis in your chart.

The Self is like the Ocean – always New, Fresh, and Free – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

 

Apropos Freedom:
Last weekend, I was at a Krishnamurti retreat. K (as he’s being called) pointed out in a video:
What’s Freedom that has no opposite? Only this is true Freedom. 
What’s Love that has no opposite? Only this is true Love.

Deep, simple, radical truth pointers (a la SATURN now coming to the ‘Galactic Centre’ end phase of SAG…) that have stayed with me, and that I’ve shared with friends and clients.
With this in mind and heart, it’s not about a path of holding the balance between opposites of Freedom (URANUS in ARIES) and Relatedness (LIBRA) but the (pathless) point is to BE FREE, unconditionally, authentically, anywhere, everywhere.

And this could be a radical (URANUS) seed point (New MOON / ARIES) NOW.

 

Let’s take a look at the LIBRA NEW MOON chart!

The New Moon was today Oct 19 at 12:12 pm PDT.

LI NM 2017

So here it is, setting the tone for the next Lunar month:

What a striking gathering of SUN / MOON late LIBRA, next to JUPITER / MERCURY in early SCORPIO!
All four celestial bodies are wrapped around the ‘Alchemy Point’, from Earth perspective.
Right opposite (for the SUN and MOON exactly, today!) URANUS retro in late ARIES!

Perhaps also a reflection of the volatile scenario of a few crazy people playing with Uranium these days, while the scales may finally tip towards peaceful coexistence!

On the other hand, a wake-up call to be fully alive in THIS, experience the Magic and Alchemy of every moment, and drop into the Intimacy with Life.

The momentum goes towards SCORPIO:

  • The MOON will enter SCO (in her monthly cycle) today Oct 19 at 6:41 pm PDT – 6 hrs after the New Moon, and we might drop emotionally into intensely moving, cathartic processes.
  • The SUN will seasonably move into SCO on SUN-day Oct 22 at 10:27 pm PDT, for a month of bringing consciousness to change from within, and new empowerment from there.
    There’s a huge transformational boost round Oct 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO (only once a year), and it’s also the day of the encounter of the CAP MOON with PLUTO – the ruler of SCO, pointing to emotional processing of old conditioning, and awareness of what’s been hidden, so that it may change for the better.
  • VENUS will join SCO on Nov 7 (until Dec 1), ‘exiled’ from ‘her’ Taurean domain. We’re drawn to  look under the surface of things, and discover hidden beauty in the dark and changeful.
    Don’t get too absorbed in a ‘magical black hole’, too many vampire movies, crime scenes, and personal power games though, as VENUS will go into conjunction with JUPITER on Nov 13, and into trine with NEPTUNE in PISCES on Nov 16. Rather channel the energy into deep immersion in the mystery of Life.
  • Lastly, MARS will go into SCO on Dec 9, when all the other archetypal players except JUPITER will have left SCO.  MARS will connect with JUPITER on Jan 7, 2018 – the last connection of a planet with JUPITER in SCO (until Oct / Nov 2018). New year’s purge? Definitely a lot of energy is available.

 

Also very prominent these days, as seen in the New Moon chart:
The Mutable T-square from MARS in late VIRGO (will move out of the alignment, and into LIBRA on Oct 22), opposite CHIRON retro in late PISCES, both square SATURN / LILITH in late SAG – the Galactic Centre!
A challenge / stress dynamic that needs an outlet at the late SAG apex.
Maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed, helpless, and disconnected – CHIRON in PI – (I did, literally, from the Internet…), and needed realignment ‘surgery’ and assertion of your integrity (MARS in VIR).

Connecting, asking for help, and doing spiritual practice with subtle energy brings things into flow again. When in a ‘rien ne va plus’ mode, it’s important to follow natural inner guidance (SATURN / LILITH in SAG) that knows… even if you don’t see the light.

LILITH and SATURN in late SAG connect in auspicious trine with URANUS retro in late ARIES (was for LILITH already exact on Oct 12 – see: me too ‘explosion’, will be for SATURN on Nov 11).

Trusting intuition, trying a completely new approach, re-set and re-start, seeing things from a fresh angle, and being fully present with what’s in front of you, step by step is the way to go.

Next up:
MARS will enter LIBRA on Oct 22 (until Dec 9) – Pursuit of Balance…?
On the same day (Oct 22) the SUN crosses over the Alchemy Point, and enters SCO. 
Stay tuned for the next AstroNews Blog post!

 

 

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’.

VIRGO New Moon with ‘Nervous Rectangle’, Mutable T-Square Calls for Flexibility in Integrity – and for Setting Butterfly Effects in Motion…

20 Sep

How have you been, in the cosmic and terrestrial storms, over the last weeks???

My heart goes out to every human, animal, and nature being affected by the Caribbean storms, and by the quakes in Mexico!

The intensity and amount of disasters around and since the PISCES – VIRGO Full Moon, and now again, round this VIR New Moon that’s LIKE a Full Moon since it’s got such a strong PI / VIR axis has shaken us up for sure!
YES, the rattler and shaker URANUS in late ARIES on the ‘Settling Point’ (well yeah, very UN-setting effects) has been stationary in August, leading into stationary PLUTO in Sept which shows us the powers of Nature…


The destructive, and the timelessly generative…

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom:
Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

Both transpersonal, collective Archetypes URANUS and PLUTO mirror what’s going on on Planet Earth, when it comes to the deep inevitable (PLUTO) and accelerating (URANUS) change of what we considered as solid and ‘given’ (CAP):
Earth structures, ‘regular’ seasons and weather,  and societal structures in governments, hierarchies, and work.
The CAPricornian patriarchal structures are dying (while trying to assert their powers in the process)… while the new (ARIES) is breaking through (URANUS).

Remember: Change can be for the better, i.o.w., fear not!
Only our attachment to the old makes us fearful. I know, easier said than done. We are very unconsciously, historically, genetically conditioned…
URANUS represents the unexpected (which seems almost the norm nowadays) that shakes and WAKES us up, to be radically in the NOW, and perhaps wake up of a dream consciousness altogether…

URANUS rules AQ – group consciousness beyond hierarchies and structures, and cooperation to build for the future. We, humanity, are all in this together. Nobody is an island indeed…

Yes, things are ‘out of natural order’ in the weather, in the climate, producing a cascade of record breaking hurricanes, fires, and earth quakes. All the elements Fire, Earth, Air, and Water represented, sadly. And Nature has a way of uncharging and re-balancing itself.

The last Full Moon on Sept 6, with the MOON and NEPTUNE closely together in PISCES, and the SUN in VIRGO amplified the PISCEAN atmospheric and literally oceanic impact of ‘chaos’ vs. the need to connect the dots, analyze the situation, and do something about it (VIRGO), IF it’s fixable, that-is…

This NEW MOON yesterday Sept 19 / today Sept 20 (depending on your time zone) activated the VIR – PI axis even more so, with the VIRGO union of SUN and MOON opposing CHIRON in PISCES. And MARS / MERCURY in VIR opposing NEPTUNE in PI.


We’re all affected, and the media (a Piscean phenomenon) allow us to tune in – not for the faint of heart, and lots of us might have felt vicariously traumatized, or re-wounded in relation to something traumatic that might have happened to us before.

No wonder, PISCEAN overwhelm and helplessness has overcome many of us.

What’s your way of responding – rather than reacting?
Giving up?
Escaping / hiding out / numbing by going into addictive substances or behavious?
Or leaning in, feeling with those affected, sending love and prayers?
All these can be PISCEAN ways of being in the Oneness that shows up so strongly now.

Rather than giving up, in hopelessness and overwhelm, or escaping into addictions that takes us out, so that we don’t fully and deeply feel what’s going on, let’s BE with PISCES differently.
A good way of applying the VIR – PI energy would be also through spiritual (PI) practice (VIR), ritual, ceremony, and connecting (PI) with Nature, esp the Ocean (PI).
And to remember:

LOVE is Super-Power!

 

Monarch Butterfly Colony

Last weekend, I went to the provocative multi-media performance Nomadic Tempest, by The Caravan Stage Company on their Tall Theatre Ship Amara Zee which is presently anchored in the Victoria harbour for a week.
Nomadic Tempest is a mythical saga of monarch migrants (embodied by aerial artists) searching for refuge on a drowned planet, in the year 2040.
The first part, an apocalyptic immersion, was really hard to take in, esp. since it was SO apropos a series of intense storms that happened just weeks and days before. When reality catches up with theatre, and dimensions blend (very PISCEAN).

Monarch Butterfly Swarm

The Butterfly Effect can be a chance to ‘heal like with like’ a la CHIRON in PISCES which the NEW MOON in VIRGO opposes:

Just as destructive domino effects ‘happen’ apparently unrelated yet connected, so too can little actions performed by many people in coherence (esp. when reaching a critical mass) have an impactful positive effect. Monarch Butterflies are super strong because they operate as a team, and they genetically evolve fast and flexibly.

Humanity and Life on Earth have a chance in this global crisis if we cooperate, and evolve fast too, out of outdated consciousness that goes into victim mode, or remains powerless and separate:
Divided we fall. United we stand.
Divided we can be controlled. United we self-govern.
Divided we give power away. United we can have a positive impact.

 

“How can I be connected with the Quantum Field?” you may ask….
You ARE IN the Quantum Field. That’s like a Dolphin asking, ‘How can I be connected with the ocean?”

The Spirit of the Dolphin has shown up a lot for me, over the last week.

Wanna join me in taking its medicine of joyful intelligent cooperation, i.o.w. raising the vibration, while riding the waves of life…?!

 

Voila, here’s the chart of the VIR NEW MOON, with ‘her entourage’ of Planetary Archetypes:

Lots of mutable / flexible energy – things are moving and changing a lot – requiring flexibility from us – no kidding.

As you see, the VIR – PI axis is very strong, almost like a Full Moon (two poles with the Earth in the middle). Lots of tension (red oppositions, green quincunxes), incl. a configuration called ‘Nervous Rectangle’ (can you see the elongated green / red rectangle?).
SO much nervousness now in the atmosphere. Collective problems, fears, anxieties… Let’s not turn into nervous wrecks!

How can we, collectively and personally, reconcile these opposing and at-odds factors that are in the field now?

  • CHIRON retro end of PI (which has also a PI undertone, ‘double PI’):
    Overwhelm, chaos, it’s all intertwined, co- and and interdependent, one thing leads to another, we’re all in this together. And bigger oceanic forces show us how vulnerable we are. What’s the healing agent in THIS???
    Retro energy suggests: It’s a recurring issue, and we need to go inwards to connect and surrender.
  • CHIRON opposite the NEW MOON end of VIR (which has also a VIR undertone, ‘double VIR):
    What can we practically DO about this and so much else that needs help now?!
    So much worry and concern, so much need for help. But we can’t be of help if we’re not healthy and capable (physically and emotionally), says VIRGO. Self awareness is required, and it’s important to be in a calm, grounded, and centred place (rather than ‘swept away’ through the Picean destabilization).Additionally, there is a  
  • T-Square of NEW MOON and CHIRON to SATURN / LILITH end of SAG: Who sees the big picture? Who’s in charge? Are leaders just shooting arguments of righteousness at one another that are at best obstacles and setbacks for a positive and wise direction, and leave large groups of people very vulnerable?
    Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH now in the Galactic Centre (esp. in Oct) knows that Truth is a Pathless Land (to quote J. Krisnamurti), so there is no right / wrong, n0t even a direction to take. 
    A test (SATURN) of how spiritual teachings and also political and philosophical beliefs (SAG) can be translated into difficult situations like these.
    In fact the call to be DONE with old limiting, separating stories and beliefs (SATURN in SAG)!
    I’d suggest to step into vibrations of healing and release to contribute those to the ‘field’, and stay away from the whole right – wrong debate, and stay focused on what matters most to you, and offer good energy from there.
  • SATURN end of SAG will go into exact square with CHIRON end of PI (not for the first but for the 3rd and last time, after Dec 2016 and Apr 2017) on Nov 2.
    A lot of pressure and ‘labour’ if we come from fear and resistence, from old stories and beliefs, to be on the path of freedom (SAG)and healing (CHIRON). Not easy but so important (SATURN) to let go, forgive (them and ourselves), and let go (PI).
    A lighter path opens up from there… trust is required. 
  • Also in the ‘Nervous Rectangle’:
    The opposition of JUPITER end of LI opposite URANUS retro in AR – which will be exact on Sept 27.
    All the relationships, all the coordination and negotiation going on. …

    What’s (im)balanced, (un)fair and (un)equal is now being seen better, and magnified BIG time, with JUPITER in LIBRA. How can we bring ourselves into balance (rather than always looking for or at ‘the other’), and make wise choices (JU in LI) – from our autonomy (UR in AR)?
    That can mean a sudden, unexpected, or spontaneous and freeing change of ‘plan’ or even agreement or even relationship. URANUS is now retro until early Jan 2018, a time to re-visit inner freedom and authenticity.

    The green quincunxes ‘surrounding’ the oppositions can turn the polarity into an interesting ‘quest’:
  • JUPITER in LI is in quincunx with CHIRON retro in PI (exact on Sept 23):
    Perhaps surrendering into what IS, letting go of making decisions, stepping into the choiceless choice brings peace and ‘tips the scales’…
  • The NEW MOON in VIR is in quincunx with URANUS retro in AR (exact Sept 19 / 20):
    Given the complexity of problems and ‘to do’s’ (end of VIR) how about finding an unexpected way out into freedom?!
    Like: Do you HAVE to do all THIS? What shows up NOW, right in front of you – instead of the big list? Who would you be without ….? Who’s the doer anyway – spiritually speaking?More VIRGO energy – YES!
  • MERCURY / MARS in VIR (they were together last Saturday, to the effect of lots of frustrated and angry talks and thoughts, yet to remember not to sweat the small stuff!!!), in opposition to NEPTUNE in PI this week (exact for MERCURY yesterday Sept 19, and exact for MARS in Sun Sept 24):
    Overwhelm leads to frustration and anger which can spill out (MARS – NEPTUNE). So let’s rather release and let go of the energy, perhaps with physical (MARS) / spiritual (NEPTUNE) like Qi Gong or Hatha Yoga! Good for us anyway…
     
  • VENUS entered VIRGO too, just yesterday.
    An incentive to be in our Temple of Wellness and Wholeness from which we can serve best.
    See special Astro~News blog, for the journey of VENUS through VIRGO, and the encounters with other Planets ‘she’ will meet.

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.
