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.

Aug 2 – 4 and beyond: URANIAN Wake-Up Calls. JUPITER / PLUTO Soulful Choices

3 Aug

The fiery URANIAN impulse (like an volcanic eruption, or a flash of lightning) is coming in stronger now, as URANUS just did its ‘U-turn’ at the very end of ARIES, to be on its yearly retro trip (Aug 2, 2017 – Jan 3, 2018 this time).
Mid-July to mid-Aug are very URANIAN weeks:
There may be more ‘crazy news’, and things can shift in a heartbeat, or the blink of an eye.
Let’s live NOW, not in the past or future. Let’s allow for inspiration in the moment, paradigm shifts, and liberation.
Motto:  Experimentation, no expectation! And: WAKE UP!

 

More fiery energy comets through the fiery (but now as explosive as URANUS) square, from JUPITER in mid-LIBRA to PLUTO retro in mid-CAP (exact tomorrow Aug 4). This is the 3rd of 3 exact squares (Nov 24, 2016, March 30 and Aug 4, 2017):
A pressure to make wise choices, esp. in relationships of all kinds, so that they serve the best purpose. Forget about going into old conditioned (even ancestral) patterns of ‘shoulds’, of taking too much on and feeling resentful, or like wasting your time (heaaaavy CAP energy needs to be purged), or being ‘too nice’ and accommodating while things are actually imbalanced – LIBRAN themes get a JUPITERIAN magnifying glass this year.

What ARE good soul (PLUTO) synergies (LI) that enhance life (JUPITER) and bring out your best, mature qualities (CAP)?
Let’s choose wisely! And save a lot of time and energy…


Well, some ‘soul relationships’ (PLUTO square JUPITER in LI) that we may or may not have consciously chosen yet attracted anyhow are occasionally quite ‘uncomfortable’ when they purge and ‘burn off’ the egos…. All part of the game..

There’s a LOT to this, on personal, interpersonal, and collective levels…, now brought up and transformed.

 

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships.

MERCURY RETRO (Aug 12 – Sept 5 – and in the making) News & Toolkit

29 Jul

Hello Astro Friends,

What on Earth and in the Heavens is going on, these days? 
you might wonder… and I’ve been asked a lot lately…

Yes, it’s the era of massive awakening and transformational shifts in society on a big scale, mirrored by our transpersonal ‘friends’ URANUS in ARIES (2011 – 2018) and PLUTO in CAP (2009 – 2023)

But what’s with all the technology and communication glitches that have sneaked in again lately?

Mercury Retro

Mercury doing its retro somersaults again…

Bingo! Another Mercury retro phase is coming UP, and already gearing UP!

As those of you know who have read my Mercury retro support notes (or even advocacy) 3 times a year over the years,

M-r isn’t necessarily ‘BAD’ news.

In a nut shell, with M-r, the Archetype of MIND is being adjusted, while temporarily operating differently than ‘usually’, to tune into a ‘New Mercury’ (hey, what’s that???).

Our good old messenger / trickster friend MERCURY is creating some ‘U-turn’ slowing down stationary ‘storm’ this coming week (calculated to start on Aug 3 but already in the making).

MERCURY will start its seasonal retro loop on Aug 12 which goes technically until Sept 5.

Perhaps an overdue and well timed adjustment, esp. since URANUS, the ‘higher octave’ / transpersonal dimension of MERCURY is also in ‘storm’ and will go retro on Aug 2! URANUS is the Archetype of ‘the Awakener’ – incl. FROM the crazy Monkey Mind.
But it shows up also in ‘lower vibrations’ (that each Archetype has) as a crazy acceleration of… our perception of… everything – a hyper, wired, crazy, manic energy. SO much going on in the collective hyper Uranian cyber sphere.
And our mer-curious ‘Monkey Mind’ can jump from one ‘tree of information’ and stimulation to another, get distracted and scattered in a hurry, and loose track of what really matters.

Good to know we can stop, consciously choose, and re-adjust to ‘upgrade’ into FREEDOM 😊

The Thinker

The Thinker, by Rodin (in front of the Rodin Museum in Paris)

A precious opportunity to get out of the head, check in to see who is that thinker (whether there is one?), tap into pure awareness, and SEE WHAT IS.

The affected Zodiac sphere of the upcoming MERCURY retro phase is between 12º VIR – (back to) 28º LEO, wrapping around the ‘Sphinx Point’ from LEO to VIR – where the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21 will be!
Seems like this an important M-r phase, and Mercury the ‘Divine Messenger’ wants to show us something about Self (LEO) Awareness (VIR) that is also mirrored in the Eclipses.

I wrote an ASTRO~NEWS Blog Article about it on July 27 – check it out here.

 

The Mercury retro cycle always  starts with the ‘Epimethean’ phase (first half – this time until Aug 26) where old (epic) stories, memories, and patterns show up for a REason (yet unknown, REvealing itself in the journey).
With the VIRGO energy, good to be aware of ‘details’ that can open up a world of synchronicities, bring back unfinished business that may connect the dots in new ways, and may well give the awareness and practical skills we have been looking for.

At the half way point of the MERCURY retro phase (Aug 26), MERCURY crosses paths with the SUN, which produces a ‘NEW MERCURY’ – which happens 3 times a year:
Time to REgenerate the mind, and REnder it more conscious (SUN). It is also called the ‘Point of Enlightened Insight’.
Since URANUS (the Awakener Archetype) is also this July / Aug a stationary focal point, as it turns retro on Aug 2 at the very end of ARIES, August is quite a wake-up, shake-up month.
It’s a great, bright, liberating energy for break-throughs into more freedom, esp. freedom from mental patterns, and freedom for a whole new way of showing up and being present with what IS.
AND the ‘Point of Enlightening Insight’ (Aug 26) comes only 5 days after the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on the Sphinx Point (Aug 21)!
The question of SelfAwareness is ‘rebooted’ big time, in this collective initiation.

Check out what’s new and exciting! And how YOU are NEW in every moment!

The second half of Mercury retro (Aug 26 – Sept 5) is the ‘Promethean’ phase, where the NEW can be planted – in conscious awareness.

 

Like myself, you might have already noticed glitches over the last while that required adjusting and clarifying communication, REsending emails, and making sure you and your partner are talking about the same thing. The changed mode could have also brought a REnewed openness for breakthroughs and aha effects, as we bypass the rational (VIRGO) censor, trust intuition, truly address what needs to be talked about (rather than ‘pseudo talk’), are able to read between the lines, pick up now what wasn’t communicated before and where loose ends were left open.

As we make suggestions or are asked to change the original ‘plan A’ things get a little ‘mixed up’, which REquires and opens up for flexibility. Often, we are afraid we might inconvenience others, but a different plan might work best and be most effective for everybody anyways.

 

Funny (might appear overwhelming and chaotic) how a change in one piece of the puzzle can create a domino effect, which shows our intrinsic connectivity in a web of energy and information (the www just being an obvious expression of it) – NEPTUNE in PISCES is opposite the point where MERCURY goes retro.

If one person whom you had made plans with and ‘counted in’ for a particular endeavour, needs to cancel (perhaps because their pet is sick) it can have a whole chain of consequences, RE-quiring RE-coordination for you and everybody else involved…
Good to stay fluid like quicksilver (MERCURY’s metal), intuitive, and ride the waves a la NEPTUNE.

 

Buddhasurf_quote

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

Here are my SEASONED & SEASONAL MERCURY RETRO TIPS & TOOL KIT 🙂

…valid for the whole phase of pre-retro ‘storm’ (Aug 3 – 12), the exact retro phase (Aug 12 – Sept 5), and extending into post-retro stationary ‘storm’ (until Sept 10), and post-retro shadow time (until Sept 20):

 

1) Be easy on yourself, as you get into the groove of things.

It usually takes a week or so to adjust to the different mode. Hopefully, you have taken the pre-retro shadow phase since late July as an adjustment, rather than being ‘hit’ by the wild ‘storm’ this coming week, or stationary stuckness (can be either and both, in paradoxical trickster fashion).

 

2) Be particularly mindful now – very VIRGO

There is a tendency for the mind to be distracted and all over the place, to loose and misplace things and thoughts that later have to be REtrieved again. Avoid getting scattered and disorganized, collect the mind ‘pieces’, be present with any situation and function ‘at hand’, and don’t loose sight of what practically works and matters – in the face of the apparent priority of urgent ‘little’ things and ‘small stuff’ which can easily be a distraction and waste of energy.

 

3) Retro is an inwards / backwards oriented energy.

Therefore align and practice even more now meditation and mindfulness – so VIRGO. Also an excellent chance (if not necessity) to deal with ‘old unfinished business’, ‘loose ends’, to clear communication themes from the past, often carried over from a previous M-r time (last one was in April to early May 2017).

 

4) Every M-r phase is a great time to actively pursue basically everything that starts with ‘RE-‘, like: re-assess, re-align, read, re-treat, re-pair, re-boot, re-group, re-consider, re-arrange, re-place, you name it…

The REason for me pointing out all these RE-activities: During Mercury retro (which also has a karmic undertone), we less likely get away anymore with being sloppy, and with procrastinating or neglecting REsidual communication issues with people from the past. They / it comes up like a mirror. Talk about what REally matters and solution rather than problem focused (which can easily take over with the VIRGO vibe).

And check out how what people say very often comes from a place of wanting to be acknowledged and loved (LEO – VIR), even if that place is being over compensated by the ego.

 

5) Choose the clearest and most direct mode of communication available.

Phone rather than messaging / email, meeting in person rather than phone / text, to make sure an actual dialogue happens (rather than just your factual monologue, with the assumption you know what they think or they know what you think). Consider communicating in several ways and via different media, to make sure the message comes across. Keep in mind that because people’s minds can be all over the place now, communication might be scattered and incomplete, or prone to assumptions: “I thought you got my email!!!”, or actually a monologue: Are you just thinking out loud as you talk, or are you actually suggesting something to me?

 

6) Be mindful how you communicate with others.

Put yourself in their position, and take ownership and responsibility for your mental processes, rather than blaming and judging (possibly based on lack of communication).

 

7) Be clear and precise with commitments and agreements.

Double check whether you have been understood correctly, and REpeat / REphrase back to them too. Avoid signing an agreement before you have all the necessary information (often only after Mercury retro is over!).

 

8) Mercury retro REminds us…

…that direct connection with another as an authentic and lively dialogue opens up the opportunity to meander and touch on other subjects than the originally intended purpose of the communication. Which can eventually lead to an even more important outcome or direction than anticipated. Check out in hindsight why you actually needed to talk to that person…

 

9) Under M-r, the odds for fabulous unexpected synchronicities are 99%:

As we act more intuitively and out of the ordinary, we allow the spontaneous intervention of the universe to show us our interconnectedness! Way cool and fun! The pieces and details (VIR) actually have a natural way of coming together and BEING connected or need to be let go of (PISCES), and all the frantic, busy organization might be obsolete – ooops!

 

10) M-r is a good time to RE-connect with people you have lost sight of.

With the VIR – LEO flavour, be clear and come from the Heart.  In any case, trust your intuition, and let yourself be surprised by where it leads to when you speak to them.

 

11) The themes and areas of life (partners, children, career, groups, etc.) that THIS retro phase brings up for YOU depend on the particular planets and house that M-r activates in YOUR personal birth chart, in other words where LEO / VIR is situated.

I’m happy to check that our for and WITH you. Maybe it’s time to come for an update / cosmic tune-up in Self Awareness (very LEO / VIR) anyway.
You could save $$ in August too (and the VIR side in us likes that): It’s my yearly CLIENT APPRECIATION MONTH: As a client, you save between 10 – 50% on the consult fee, depending on how long ago your initial session was. First time clients get 10% off too!

 

12) When ‘glitches’ occur, be fluid and flexible like quicksilver (Mercury’s metal), think “shift happens”.

Don’t judge yourself or others for not being ‘perfect’ and making ‘mistakes’, and turn the paradigm around:
What could be the opportunity in this mishap? REframe your way of thinking about things. And entertain the possibility that subconsciously, you might have arranged a wild alternative to the original ‘plan A’ which – who knows? – might lead to something new and better and more fun than the ‘normal’, ‘usual’, ‘regular’, and apparently most ‘efficient’ mind-in-rut-mode could have come up with?

 

13) Enjoy those unintentional puns, slips, and new connections in the mind, be creative and brainstorm – esp. together with your Mercury retro friends 😉

 

14) If you would like to know…

  1. a) whether you are a member of the RETRO CLUB (born under Mercury retro, as yours truly)
  2. b) in which part of life the retro trickster would likely play tricks on / with you
  3. c) how to play creatively WITH the energy,

feel welcome to get in touch with your astrologer…

 

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships.
August is Client Appreciation Month in my practice – substantial discounts, esp. if you’ve been my client for years. But even newbies get 10% off!

MERCURY on the SPHINX POINT – into ‘storm’ on Aug 3 (retro Aug 12 – Sept 5), and URANUS retro (Aug 2): Self Awareness + Mindfulness + Magic + Liberation!

27 Jul

Harvest FieldWhy is everyone so bizzzy, even anxious and nervous?
Harvest time energy type of vibe (wait a minute, not Aug / Sept yet!)…

So much to organize, clear, get in order?
Refining skills and techniques?
You too?

MERCURY has this week (exactly on Tue July 25) crossed over the ‘Sphinx Point’ from LEO to VIRGO.
MERCURY in its natural placement of VIRGO now, as the SUN is in solid solar glow LEO (until Aug 22) can be a super creative and productive time!

Fine and dandy. However….

Is there a ‘however’?
Well, for those of us who get nervous just by hearing / reading about the buzz words: MERCURY retro.

YES, it’s true, due, and immanent: MERCURY will go RETRO, from Aug 12 on, until Sept 5.
OH NO! I hear you shout out.

No worries, VIRGO! Maybe it all turns out differently than you thought! To all of us, and esp for the early / mid VIRGO side in our charts I say, on behalf of MERCURY:
Rather than fretting over irrelevant details, going crazy over things ‘not working’, and tapping into the neurotic side of this (‘low vibration’ / shadow of VIR), let’s be self aware, mindful, and intuitive.
Let’s see what the universe is trying to tell us
rather than imposing our thoughts and ‘plans’ (esp. if they don’t really work practically) onto the world.

This week, July 25, MERCURY crossed the ‘SPHINX POINT’ (LEO to VIR) for the 1st time in a sequence of 3 – WOW, triple SPHINX POINT activation:

  • July 25 (in direct / forward mode / M-r pre-shadow)
  • Aug 31 (in retro mode)
  • Sept 9 (in direct mode / M-r ‘storm’)

What’s the SPHINX POINT all about?
Self Awareness: Know Thyself. Who ARE YOU?
Which can be taken very deeply…
The SPHINX is an oracle, and offers a silent mirror image.
Our perception of the world ‘as it is’, and of people show us a lot about ourselves.
Back to: Who or what IS the Self….?


Let’s see how we can healthily, happily align (which is a LEO – VIR thing) with this energy.
On a ‘practical’ level: Self (LEO) Awareness (VIRGO) means:

Who am I? What brings me joy? What do I do with Love, and as an expression of my fullness and wholeness? What do I create from Love that in service to others? How can I use my creative play, my passion, and my strengths not just for myself but to help others? How do I put my Love into Service?
VIRGO is motivated by alignment, as in: order into chaos, and alignment with the cosmic order and the higher self. Bringing these to the ‘ground level’.
Clearly a (necessary, next level) ‘humbling’ effect in VIR after glorious and bombastic LEO.
In the seasons / yearly cycle it’s the time when Summer play time turns into ‘back to school / work’. 
In human development LEO – VIR is the phase from adolescence (show time, party time, be seen, have fun) to young adulthood (taking on new responsibilities, transition into college / university or into the work world).

The passionate, fiery ‘anything goes’ LEO energy becomes grounded, practical, realistic, and checks in: Does this work, is it healthy, functional? What would work better? What needs to be realigned? Paying attention to details and ‘issues’ is helpful, becoming neurotic – not so much.  Always good to check in with awareness: What’s going on here? What am I doing and why? Whom and what does this serve? Or is it self-serving? Can I be aware of the ego, and put its energy into some practical use?

The SPHINX POINT plays an important role this Summer:

Through the triple MERCURY contact, and, even more so:

Through the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on Aug 21 on the last degree of LEO – the SPHINX POINT – and close to REGULUS, brightest star in the constellation LEO, and astrologically on the SPHINX POINT.
The Eclipse path goes over the U.S. (South-East to North-West), and it will be on Trump’s AC / MARS (both at the very end of LEO).
U.S. and Trump – the Sphinx Effect?
What is he / are we / is the world doing???

The combo of MERCURY retro and TSE looks like a re-adjustment (M-r) and major re-set (Total Solar Eclipse), through an initiation gate (LEO – VIR).
Of course, I’ll write more about the Eclipse over the next weeks. Stay tuned. 

 

Hermes / Mercury

For the MERCURY journey this Summer, I’d suggest bottom line:
Let’s be self-aware, and see how what we do comes from LOVE, and how we can put our LOVE into service (doesn’t work so well with ego anyway 🙂 )

MERCURY will go into pre-retro ‘storm’ (moving very slowly before the ‘U-turn’) from Aug 3 on, and go retro on Aug 12.
The ‘stormy phase’ – Aug 3 until the first days of retro (about Aug 17) can be a bit turbulent 
since things don’t go according to ‘plan’ – but that makes room for something else to show up.

It can take a bit to get the hang of this different ‘modus operandi’.

Mercury Retro

Mercury doing its retro somersaults again…

So let’s not fret, and be flexible and mer-curious instead, to see what the Universe lines up for us.
How about turning it around and asking when something changes the ‘order’:
How does this help me? What does this help me with? Whom can I help now?

M-r in VIR is excellent for dealing with ‘unfinished business’ (quite literally) from the past. Do it with LOVE is the key.

M-r often relates ‘like a chain’ (yep, there’s a karmic effect / opportunity in it) to the previous M-r’s (April – early May 2017, Dec 2016 – early Jan 2017).
Time to RE-connect in communication with people, or RE-visiting projects dating back to those times.

Last year, MERCURY was also retro in VIR (Sept 1 – 22, 2016, and for a very long time in VIR (all Aug, Sept, until 1st week of Oct 2016).
What re-organized itself there, or how we were initiated and practically trained at that time can become quite useful and significant this year.

Maybe you’re already having a combination of premonitions and deja-vus, a M-r effect. And all of us born under M-r, we’re probably ‘good with it’, and in excited anticipation, having fun in the upcoming magic and synchronicities of it all.

Kin Yellow Crystal Seed YearWe’re now in the Mayan New Year (since July 26) of the Yellow Crystal Seed – an initiation into a different quality of being ‘in Time’.

Here’s a quote from the Foundation of the Law of Time

“Crystal is the tone of cooperation. Cooperation implies communication. Open communication is how we build bridges. Crystal seed is the year of the fulfillment of the Return of the People of OMA from across the bridge of time. We are the bridge. The Time is Now. OMA is the Original Matrix Attained.

The Original matrix is woven on Nature’s intelligence.  Intelligence implies a perception of patterns. The 13 Moon calendar offers a simple daily system to track multiple patterns of time. The effect is the increase of order, awareness and intelligence in your daily life.

Daily use also helps you to enter into a Universal consciousness that transcends dogma, religion, race, economic status and gender.  Synchronicity will become your normal every-day experience.”

This amazing Crop Circle from July 18 that ‘popped up’ in a search for me today is linked to the theme… loving it!

Speaking of synchronicities and surprises:

Prometheus

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

URANUS, the ‘higher octave’ and ‘transpersonal’ dimension of MERCURY – Freedom from the Mind, Awakening – presently at the very end of ARIES, will also go retro (once a year), on Aug 2, which means: July and August are also very ‘Uranian‘, with URANUS as a stationary focal point and ‘transmitter’:
What an exciting, electric, surprising, paradigm shifting, liberating vibe in the air!
The URANUS effect can shift and uplift us (and catapult us out of an old ‘matrix’), with accelerated force. Which, for the ‘known’ identity can appear like a wild and crazy ride.
Let’s go with it (rather than resisting it and having it come ‘at us’)!

What’s new and exciting for YOU?

 

 

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.

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.

Early Summer Standstill and Spiraling Vibes

29 Jun
chartreslabyrinth

Chartres Labyrinth

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

URANUS in ARLiberation into the vibrant NOW Presence.

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

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

 

Many Heartfelt Summer Blessings!

Enjoy this Body-Mind-Spirit Nourishing Season!

* URANUS in ARIES retro to direct Dec 29: Expect the Unexpected. Wake-up Calls and Awakening. Emergence of the NEW. From the ‘9’ Year to the ‘1’ Year.

29 Dec
Uranus

Maverick Planet Uranus (NASA)

 

It already started: December and January are quite the ‘URANIAN’ months as URANUS changes direction from retro to direct – today!

 

URANUS, the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener, catalyzes liberation on all levels (“I’m out of here!” “Get outa here!” “Eureka!”), and ‘out of the Box’ / ordinary / norm experiences, surprises, shocks, incidents, accidents, precedents, wake-up calls, paradigm shifts, unsettled energy, a sense of urgency / emergency, unrest, and revolutions.

 

There’s been definitely a lot of those in the ‘cosmic weather’ recently…

URANUS is the ‘higher octave’ / transpersonal version of MERCURY.

We’re experiencing now a synchronized, compounding effect of URANUS and MERCURY influences, since MERCURY’s ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’ – the half-way point of the M-r phase, was just yesterday Dec 28. That’s when M-r shifts from the first half, called ‘epimethean’ phase (where ‘old stories’ are being processed) to the ‘promethean’ phase where new ideas and ‘forward-thinking’ is ‘in the air’, and URANUS goes direct today – all in one ‘package’.

 

Build_the_New

I don’t know where this poster comes from, or whether the quote is really by Socrates. But it expresses the ‘Zeitgeist’ of URANUS in AR / PLUTO in CAP so well and simply.

 

Since July 29, UR has been in its yearly 5-month retro (inward-backward oriented, or rather latent) phase. Now it’s Wake-UP time: Inner liberation – maybe a breaking away from old beliefs or limiting containers – has prepared us for actually showing our liberated Self more outwardly in our actions and choices.

SATURN in SAG helps with being done with ‘old ways / stories / beliefs’ while JUPITER in LI shows how important choices, balance, fairness, reciprocity, right relationship, and ‘good matches’ are.

JUPITER in LI is also opposing URANUS in AR (was exact only 3 days ago, Dec 26): Being in our liberated Self and ‘enlightened self interest’ (UR in AR) benefits our relationships and attracts a suitable match – on all levels.

UR goes the furthest back in the Zodiac this year now (up to 20°33 AR).

If you have planets between about 18 and 23° AR, CAN, LI, or CAP you’d get the kick from URANUS to be the liberated, authentic Self (even if there might be an apparent conflict with family, partners, society – but that’s just part of the path to freedom).

Dec 2016 – Jan 2017 is therefore a very charged time that once again pushes us into new levels of RE-birth, transformation, and awakening of consciousness.

 

So let’s BE the Change of the World-in-Becoming!

The NEW is emerging NOW. And a New Year is around the corner.

 

So many people are ‘done’ with 2016, for different reasons. 2016 has been a ‘9’ year, numerologically: 2+0+1+6 = 9. Endings, closure, release.

And it feels very ‘old’ already. A lot of what came up this passing year needed to ‘come out’ to be released, perhaps of the last 9 years even (since the beginning of 2008). Doing an intentional ceremony would be a good way of honouring what we let go of.

 

2017 will be a ‘1’ year: 2+0+1+7 = 10 / 1. Newness on many levels. Stay tuned. Things can shift fast now. What’s the newness that you invoke?

* Uranus Turns Retro on July 29 :: Liberation From Within!

29 Jul

Yes.
URANIAN / Promethean times we’re in…

Did you know? 2 days ago, July 25, the Mayan New Year of the Blue Spectral Storm started.

Whoa that year theme is – very URANIAN / Promethean too!

 

Kin Blue Spectral Storm 2016

Blue Spectral Storm Seal

 

http://www.13moon.com/galactic-new-year.htm states:
“The Blue Storm Year calls us to be awakened Thunder Beings; agents of electric passion and purpose; alchemists of energies; empowered self-generators; embodiments of stillness dancing; lucid World-Changers living from our centers of calm resilience.”
“ This is the Time to access the force of your inner spark as your ultimate source of power; to unleash the lightning of your soul; to be the calm eye of the storm amidst potent inner and outer transmutations and shifts of all kinds!”

 

URANUS is now in very slow moving ‘direct-to-retro STORMall July and August, since…:

* URANUS turns retro tomorrow July 29 (until Dec 29):

 

 Buddha_Blessing

LIBERATION from WITHIN

The URANIAN Turnaround (twice a year, from retro to direct – recently end of December, and from direct to retro – recently in July) is a stand-still and ‘gear shift’ in a collective (outer) and transpersonal (inner) way.

URANUS went direct on Christmas Day, Dec 25, 2015. Lots of external, collectively experienced explosive, shocking wake-up calls since then (literally explosions in airports, attacks, shootings, bombings, Brexit surprise, shocking deaths of idols David Bowie and Prince….).

Now we are shifting from primarily outward experiences with URANUS to inner ‘revolution’ and awakening.

Not to say there’s a guarantee for calm waters ‘out in the world’ but the theme is more internalized. It is also an integration of the effects from ‘external URANUS’.

The more we dedicate our energy towards embracing URANian Liberation from within the better aligned we are.

 
You’re FREE. Have always been. But maybe NOW is the time to fully wake up to it.

 

Let’s look at the SABIAN SYMBOL for the URANUS Turnaround Degree:

URANUS is now stationary, and will go retro tomorrow July 29 at 24°30’ ARIES.

Since URANUS will go retro before reaching 25°, I chose the 24th degree here:

24° ARIES:

 Curtains Breezejpg

“BLOWN INWARD BY THE WIND, THE CURTAINS OF AN OPEN WINDOW TAKE THE SHAPE OF A CORNUCOPIA.

Keynote: Openness to the influx of spiritual energies. 

The principle of abundance is brought to a further stage in this rather cryptic symbol. Physical fruition is shown operating at a more subtle and spiritual level. The wind (pneuma, spirit) blows through the open mind-window and brings into the house of personality a promise of more-than-material potency. Wind blown from a region of high pressure to one of low pressure. As the window curtains are blown inward, the individual consciousness represented by the house is receiving a more concentrated influx of spiritual energies, enabling this consciousness to extend the scope of its awareness and creative expression.

This message… is that inner growth demands not just an open mind but one able to provide a container for a spiritual harvest. The cornucopian shape of the window’s curtains suggests that the subtler translucent aspect of the mind (the curtains) has acquired a quality of plasticity enabling it to be MOLDED BY TRANSPERSONAL FORCES.”

 

This late ARIES symbol is very apropos the present ‘stormy’ URANIAN influence:

  • A fresh Spirit breeze into open minds!
  • Certain liberating realizations might indeed blow our minds!
  • Rather than going for external or sensational thrill (which is abundantly available nowadays) let’s tune into the URANIAN / Promethean gifts that liberate us FROM the mind-matrix and FOR a truly free and open mind!

 

URANUS has been the T-square catalyst of the recent CAP – CAN Full Moon (see previous post), and it will be stationary at that degree all July and August, into mid September!

A theme for the SUMMER:

Back to Nature, to our inner nature, flying high and nesting with our Spirit tribe, yet even there, not getting too settled, and staying open to transpersonal shifts and gifts that truly liberate and change us!
