SATURN in late SAG (the Galactic Center / Centaur) squares CHIRON in PISCES on Nov 2: Medicine Teachings

2 Nov

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius.
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

NO – not the Full Moon (NOV 3 / 4) Astro~News yet… some Taurean patience please, since something else is on today (which the Full Moon will highlight and bring out too, of course):

For the 3rd and last time (after Dec 2016 and Apr 2017) SATURN squares CHIRON today, NOV 2..
Now, SATURN is in late SAG, the area which projects out into the Centre of the Milky Way, a.k.a. Galactic Centre – pointing us to the Ultimate Unknown and Unknowable.
In the Northern Hemisphere the SUN is there on the last days before Winter Solstice.

How do we know, or how can we trust the Light will return???

Since Sept 2015, SATURN in SAG has brought trials and tests, to show us how we respond to perceived road blocks.
How can we be done with old stories and limiting beliefs (that ARE the road blocks)?
It would be good to do a review of Before (2015 when SATURN entered SAG) & After – now in the last 7 weeks of SATURN in SAG (until Dec 19).

We might have been afraid esp. recently that a ‘wrong direction’ (SAG) by (ir)responsible leaders (SATURN) can set off a trajectory on the karmic path (SATURN) that can make us all vulnerable (CHIRON in PI), to put it mildly. Yes, we know and feel it… or tune into collective fears.

Speaking of the ‘pink elephant in the room’, Trump is affected by SATURN in late SAG, now (every 29 years) right on his South Node / Lunar Eclipse MOON that likes to preach, go by good-bad / right-wrong judgments, ‘shoot from the hip’, and exhaustingly (apparently more for the audience than for himself) target, or be the target.
Listening and learning (GEM) would be the incentive in his chart – and life.

What’s the teaching (SATURN), the ‘way out'(?), the healing and Medicine (CHIRON) in this?
Trust (one of the themes of SAG) doesn’t seem to take us far these days, under SATURN in SAG, at least not trust in people in authority, perhaps not even trust in our own choices and responses under stress? 
We know, the road of division, separation, righteous accusation, polarization, and arrogance, all fueled by fear (all shadow expressions of SATURN in SAG) goes nowhere (except provokes karmic repercussions).
In the polarized world, the CHIRON in PI would mean, someone / some party has to surrender, or else suffers greatly.
How can these old agendas, beliefs, ‘stories’, and paradigms be ‘washed out’ and released? What sets them free?

Rumi: Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you Do

What’s the High Road that dissolves Right-doing and Wrong-doing?
‘The Field’ Rumi points to?

Can be ‘only’ the All-Connective Fabric of LOVE that’s beyond personal attraction, likeness, preference.
Unconditional.

The Love that has no Opposite (as Krishnamurti pointed out).

An ultimate Medicine for us, in our personal suffering, and a vibration we can offer to a world in distress, and whom-it-may-concern.

So let’s keep our Hearts wide open and connected to Source, and offer Love that IS, unconditionally, simply because…

 

 

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’.

PISCES – VIRGO FULL MOON with NEPTUNE (Sept 6) – We’re ALL (in) THIS!

5 Sep

A shorter note this FULL MOON… since it’s all in the vibration, less in the information…

The Piscean Unification Full Moon!
We’re all in THIS.

For better or worse.
In the Music, in the Smoke.
In the Wave of it all.

 

The Full Moon in PISCES – VIRGO – with MOON / NEPTUNE – will be exact 3 minutes after midnight tonight PDT. Here is her chart:

PI - VIR FM 2017

 

How can we fix and RE-solve this or that….?
Maybe NOT.
Maybe it’s more (ALL!) about being in the Vibration of LOVE.

After Fullness, the MOON will pass CHIRON in late PI, just before midnight PDT Sept 6.

‘Healing’ happens, or at least things come into flow again, through empathy and connectedness. No fixing of faults, but being with what IS and with who they ARE.
Here’s a beautiful video that RE-emerged for our CHIRON Archetype group this week.

 

Symbolism

…through cards and images has come in as a creative wave, in our Astro sessions this week.

Painting by Susan Boulet – Goddess Cards

AMPHITRITE, an oceanic Triple Moon Goddess, married to Poseidon (which is NEPTUNE of course), yet maintaining her individuality (very VIRGO).
She can be invoked to calm our inner storms…
SO synchronistic!

The SABIAN SYMBOL for the Full Moon at 13°53′ = 14° PISCES says:

A LADY WRAPPED IN A LARGE STOLE OF FOX FUR.

 

Fox

KEYNOTE: The use of intelligence and mental subtlety as a protection against storms and trials.

Coming just after the preceding symbols and as the fourth stage of a five-fold sequence, which is usually related to some kind of technique, this symbol may at first seem irrelevant. The key to its interpretation, missed by the commentators, is fox fur. In symbolism and mythology the fox is always a clever and subtle animal. It represents the intellect at its early stage of “cunning”; in a broader sense, it also refers to “intelligence,” considered as the ability to adapt to any and all life situations. Spiritual will and the ability to stand in facing tests are necessary in any crucial or challenging situation that an individual meets within a power-oriented group. But the sword-like will often has to be shielded, and intelligence or acumen can be the most precious help in danger. It is a personal (i.e. “animal” or instinctual) shield, perhaps even a camouflage. It hides the central will, but it keeps the individual from unnecessary hardships.

What we see symbolized here is a self-protective way of meeting the inclemencies of weather, actual or psychic, which abound as one leads a life consecrated to a vaster Whole; for this very consecration arouses strong enmities. Unnecessary risks are forbidden to the initiate, for the security of the Brotherhood might be endangered. The need for PROTECTIVE SHIELDING is imperative, and glamour can be an effective shield.

 

Rather than emphasizing on the wearing the fox fur, let’s go with the symbolic meaning of the FOX Medicine.

So yeah, let’s creatively use PISCEAN Camouflage & Adaptation.
And Mercurial / VIRGOan Intelligence in changing situations.

 

Things are MOVING and moving us again indeed, after so much solid LEO fixity. ‘Flexible’ / mutable is the main modality now.

LILITH in late SAG – approaching the Galactic Centre (there in October), and leading SATURN after passing the authority / road block / obstacle on the path teacher, shows us:

Our True Intrinsic Nature is FREE. Always has been. Unconditionally.

Intentionally moving from the Heart is the SATURN job now. Karmic feedback follows (just as confirmation, not that we expect it, that would kill it).

 

Is MERCURY retro over?

Technically yes, this (Sept 5) morning it stopped its retro motion, and is now going slooooowly forward again. Which means: This week, MERCURY is in turnaround station, aka storm, like a gear shift, until it catches some momentum from Sunday Sept 10 on.
It will be out of post-retro ‘storm’ by then but still in post-retro ‘shadow’ until about Sept 20.

This week is a ‘HOT’ post-retro week, and it would be good to be very clear with agreements and communication, yet also an excellent time to also slow down, and RE-ceive messages that help with integrating the retro phase themes.

MARS also moved into MERCURY ruled VIRGO today (until Oct 22) – see last blog post.
A grounding effect that helps us with going for what’s in alignment, maybe a smaller scale, health / wellness focused pursuit.
Excellent for clearing and also detox after the Full Moon.

Funneling right into the PI – VIR Full Moon tomorrow:

Attunement and alignment.
Surrender and skillfulness.

Just like Yoga or surfing.

 

More VIRGO energy to come…

As MERCURY re-enters VIRGO on Sept 9, and VENUS joins, on Sept 19. In fact, the cuspy VIRGO NEW MOON on Sept 19 / 20 is VERY VIRGOan.

The cosmic movement to and with VIRGO calls to be grounded and practical, DO the Sacred Work that’s in alignment for us and that we came here to do, offer ceremony, ritual, and keep our body-mind-spirit Temple clear and in wellness.

Wellness is Wealth.
Wholeness is Divine.

 

 

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.

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.

CHIRON in late PISCES goes retro: Inner Journey into Oneness

1 Jul
Chiron

Chiron the Wounded Healer / Centaur

Big News of the day (yes, besides Canada 150 – and related to it!):
CHIRON
 changed ‘gears’ from direct into retro mode (July 1 – Dec 5).

The whole month of July has a CHIRON flavour.
And Canada has its 3rd  CHIRON return (every 50 years) also in 2017.

Late PI where CHIRON ‘sits’ has an extra PI ‘undertone’ – it all comes together, and yet is elusive – or overwhelming, interwoven and all-connective.
This can show up in ‘wounded syndromes’ of: feeling overwhelmed yet never really ‘getting anywhere’, feeling lost, confused, deluded, weakened, esp. in the immune system, feeling like giving up.


And for Canada, there’s definitely a lot up now, in the interwoven field of reconciliation with First Nations, unceded territories, a lot of paradoxes…., a lot of questions re: what are we celebrating? Colonization? Whose land?

I’d refer to the timeless wisdom quote:

What’s the ‘healing agent’ with a ‘Like Heals Like’ on a personal level, when things get a bit ‘too much’?

How about:
Tapping into Oneness, where ALL is already and always HERE. 
Literally being by or in the Water, relaxing, releasing, soaking up the oceanic energy that’s freely available…? 
Exposing ourselves to music and dance, sound therapy, yoga, meditation, anything that brings us back into a place of unity in life, from which all ‘comes together’ quite naturally…?

A big shift is coming next year, as CHIRON (in PI since Feb 2011) will enter ARIES (for a short time mid Apr – end of Sept 2018, and eventually end of Feb 2019) where it hasn’t been in almost 50 years.
A ‘wounded warrior’ theme? An emergence of shamans? Vulnerability yet also in-built medicine of a ‘precedent’ of sorts? The birth of SELF and a new way of being? Hmmm, at this point, it seems still elusive and mysterious. To be revealed… (next year, JUPITER will be also in SCORPIO).

In any case, CHIRON in now (June / July) on the very end of PI – 29° (in transition to AR) = on the ‘Emergence / Birthing Point’, where out of the ALL a new life form and potentiality is almost emerging – yet at this point re-tracing into the ocean of oneness.
Let’s find our Medicine in THIS.
