New Moon in Aquarius: Innovating

dsc05288Hi All! The last Moon cycle was quite a ride with Mercury Rx (Retrograde) bringing forth much-needed goal-setting changes of mindsets! Talk about having a month’s worth of New Year’s Resolutions to sort through! LOL!

The current Moon cycle began with the New Moon phase on January 27th at 5:08pm MST at the following astrological coordinates: 08 degrees of Aquarius 15′ (think of these coordinates as cosmic longitude to navigate within your Birth Chart!). Here BOTH the Moon and Sun sat together at the same place in time, initiating yet another new cycle of something NEW this way comes!

Aquarius is the fixed air sign, signifying originality, innovation, community, and truly standing IN your True Self orientation! And if you’re not quite sure what your True Self is all about, keep watching, listening, feeling and intuiting yourself this full Moon cycle to gain insights about yourself!

Aquarius brings forth our Future Self into the NOW, with all her/his bright and original ideas! So if you’re inspired to explore, talk and/or write about some aspect of you, your life, or how you’d like your life to now BE, this is the Moon cycle to share it within your community of peeps.

dsc05324Each Moon cycle brings forth inner awareness, consciously, to the surface. What is hidden within the dark moments of the New Moon is some aspect of your Ego-mind Self that doesn’t want to BE in the Light (conscious) before now. Each Moon cycle brings themes, via the astrological sign it is in, and the connections the Moon/Sun make to the other planets in our solar system, at the moment of the New Moon phase – always the new beginning after the ending of the previous Moon cycle.

Aquarius, within the natural wheel of Astrology, rules the 11th House – what wishes and dreams do you have for your near future? Who are the people in your life supporting those dreams and who are not? What ‘community’ are you joining to those ends? As in groups, memberships, circle of friends and colleagues? Look around you to ‘see’ the outer mirror reflected back to you – namely the people in your life. They represent YOU in the outer world, a reflection of YOUR inner world/connection of your True Self. Cool!

Looking at this New Moon cycle’s chart I see the following connections between the Moon/Sun and:

  • The North Node in the mutable earth sign of Virgo, Rx: here we have some old patterns of conditioning that need to be let go of at some point this Moon cycle in order to embrace the forward-moving direction our Souls wish us to move into re: being of service (aka work, volunteering, hobbies) out in our respective worlds. Watch out for that perfectionism/procrastination distraction that the Ego-mind Self can get caught up in to avoid change in your life! The Rx (Retrograde) signifies something deeply personal – we take it personally – until the charge of whatever it is we need to let go of is healed and let go of.
  • The Part of Fortune – our Joy: this sensitive point is in the fixed fire sign of Leo. Here our Joy is about the fun and play of Creativity, being that innocent nature child, creating just for the fun of it! Leo also rules the heart and back – heartfully, do you have your back? As in are you supporting yourself in your Joy? Do you know what Joy feels like? The connection with the Moon/Sun this cycle is an opposition whereby we can continue to be polarized between being fixed on MY innovations OR being fixed in creating what I WANT! How about creating an ‘AND’ here? BE innovative and original (Aquarius) AND creative WITH others? As in your community. And this goes way beyond art folks! How are you creating community, with laughter, fun and play, in your world?

dsc05342Interestingly, this New Moon doesn’t make any other direct connections with any of the other planets. The Cardinal Grand Square formation of planets within the 4 cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) is still in play! Here are the characters initiating much-needed CHANGE in your life:

  • Uranus + Eris in the cardinal fire sign of Aries: at 20 and 22 degrees of Aries – Unexpected Change to typical gender roles continues. Our inner Warrior and Pioneer selves are still undergoing major transformation – drinking from that cup of Courage (Aries) to BE authentic within your own body! As in being comfortable in your own skin! BE YOU! No matter the gender – be YOU! Uniqueness in this world IS the goal. Not to be feared or hidden away. Doing so brings forth the need for addictions, distractions and such from our Ego-mind Self to keep it all in the fear frame, to be hidden away. Why? What’s so scary about BEing You anyway? Truly. And being in a woman’s body or man’s body doesn’t mean either gender is Less Than…and it never has. Yet another myth to be dispelled, which both Eris and Uranus have been dancing together about since 2012 especially!
  • Vesta in the cardinal water sign of Cancer, Rx: at 25 degrees of Cancer – here the feeling body (ruled by the Moon!) brings forth a concentrated focus on how you feel those emotions, take notice of your intuition, and whatever symbolism and insights that complete the picture of your Inner Life. Live from the Inside-Out! BE the feeling body you truly are – stop running away from feeling those feelings! Make peace with your Ego-mind Self’s need to do that Flight or Fight regimen that no longer gains us anything (unless of course we are in the middle of some real danger, then yes please – run!). Perceived danger is different from real danger. If your physical life isn’t about to be taken – then what are you running away from? Ask that Ego-mind Self, “What ARE you afraid of here? How can I help? What do you need to feel safe?” Cancer also brings forth issues of our family of origin, Mom, mothering and nurturance. How well have you been nurturing/loving You? Hhhhmmm….
  • Jupiter in the cardinal air sign of Libra: at 23 degrees of Libra – here we are being called to EXPAND our realm of relationships and partnerships beyond current boundaries we’ve set up since who knows how long. Could be you decide to end some relationships – or at least change them – because they haven’t been working for you or with you for some time now. Could be some are co-dependency rather than inter-dependent or intra-dependent? Interesting to delve into and ‘see’ the reality of them now. Libra is an air sign – so journal, chat and think about it all.
  • Pluto + Mercury in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn: at 17 and 15 degrees of Capricorn – we are still undergoing a HUGE transformation, mindfully, of how we set goals towards our respective material gain in the world. Via career, work, volunteering – whatever it is that has you out and about in the world to gain materially, literally, physically. Any earth sign means being tactile, hands-on and wanting to SEE the fruits of our labours! In current society, “Money, Money, Money!” For those of us struggling with continued unemployment, what used to be very important is not anymore. Keeping up with the Jones’s (who were they again?) or what others think (!) isn’t necessary, and never was. BEing unemployed for long periods of time is humbling, bringing forth resourcefulness and thinking outside the box in order to survive and thrive despite money hardships (aka debt). Allow this transformation to continue – you will see changes in mindsets here, continuing this Moon cycle (we started it around the last Full Moon). And when the Ego-mind Self gets in the way, you’ll see power and control issues coming forth! The best outcome is EMPOWERMENT – self and others create a ‘win-win’ for all! Which is what Capricorn wants!

Check out these cosmic longitude coordinates within your birth chart to see what 4 areas of your life are being renewed with NEW initiatives since the last Full Moon! Interesting how we continue to work out strategies for ourselves from one Moon cycle to the next.

dsc05321Saturn + Vertex + Juno are all together in the late degrees of Sagittarius (24, 25 and 28, respectively). Here we are seeking our Higher Truth via how our lives are structured (Saturn), fateful/destined events/people in our lives (Vertex) and truly envisioning relationships/partnerships of equality (Juno). Sagittarius beckons us to stand on our Hill of Now, look back to where we’ve been, contemplate how we’ve arrived into the NOW, then turn to face our Future Hills of Now – which Hill or Hills are beckoning you forward into new territory and journeys? What IS True for You? Truly. Authentic. Original. Innovative. Bring ALL of these aspects of You to the table this Moon cycle. BE all that you can BE!

Today, the Crescent Moon cycle begins at 9:30a MST at 27 degrees of Pisces 00′ – mutable water – showing a wee bit of Light shining into that unconscious Darkness I spoke of earlier. What is it that your Ego-mind Self is afraid to have uncovered this Moon cycle? The Crescent Moon phase means there will be a struggle between the OLD and the NEW. Something old is dying, emotionally, Within you. Will you allow it to or will you hold onto it a while longer? Pisces brings forth any issues of that Drama Triangle (victim or rescuer or persecution) that we may be hanging onto. Find the House where Pisces resides in your birth chart to know where this “victimhood, I want to be rescued! And I feel persecuted / bullied” mindset of the Ego comes into play in your world. That “o woe is me” tape.

dsc05367Also today (!) Venus regains her Crown of Authority at 28 degrees of Pisces too! The Crown chakra indicates our connection to the Divine, our Spiritual self or Higher Self, angels, God – whatever your spiritual beliefs are – here we regain that connection in a totally renewed way! Venus represents our Desire Body – what do you truly desire, spiritually, for yourself now?

Co-Creative, Heartfelt Leadership – New Moon in Leo!

DSC04664Hi Everyone! It’s been quite the ride with the weather during the last Moon cycle – huge thunderstorms here in Alberta, with either driving rain and/or hailstones and wind, with flash floods. Fort McMurray, in northern Alberta, experienced first the horrific forest fires in May, and just this weekend flash flooding due to 75″ of rain in one fell swoop! Too bad the rain didn’t manifest back in May to belay all the damage and destruction. Quite the example of masculine then feminine elemental energies there to balance everyone, and thing, out up there. It will be interesting to see what this natural re-balancing creates in their future!

Today’s New Moon in Leo brings a more sedate energy – fire that is fixed – so we truly are in the middle of the Summer season and weather. “The lazy hazy dog days of summer” – named by the Ancients in Egypt who realized, when the Sun entered the fire sign of Leo at some point in August, it also aligned with the fixed Dog Star of Sirius, lining up with the three stars of Orion’s Belt AND the Sphinx down here on Earth! This timing in 2016 is on August 8th – the Lion’s Gate Portal – embracing the Cosmic HEART energies into your life! This will occur while we undergo the Crescent Moon phase. A lot of what I write about herein is setting us up for the two Eclipses we’ll be experiencing in September. So BE mindful, heartfully and intentionally, this Moon cycle, of what you WISH to manifest for you these next 3.5 years of Life Experience…

What does this mean for you and me? Read on..you’ll ‘see’ a theme and pattern here…

DSC04656

Fiery Sunset AND Thunderstorm!

As I write this post, the Sun and Moon came together as the New Moon as of 2:44p MDT at 10 degrees of Leo 58′ (so close to 11 degrees!). Where is Leo in your birth chart? This is the focus for all of us, any or all of the following, to experience, avoid, be denial of (your choice!):

  • Love and Romance: what do either of these concepts MEAN, heartfully, to you? What is your heartfelt INTENTION around these subjects, FOR your Life now and 3.5 years into the future? Remember: with Leo – we are either coming from the HEART (love), or we are coming from the EGO (mind) – are you showing up whole-heartedly or just mindfully without heart? Interesting…
  • CREATIVITY: here we learn not only to CREATE our Life IN the NOW moments (not the past nor the future), we also LISTEN with our Hearts as to WHAT IT IS I WISH TO CREATE! Do you know what you wish MORE of and BETTER, FOR YOUR LIFE, now? How well are you listening to YOUR inner wisdom space, hearing the voice of your Higher Self/Creative Self? Thank you Oprah and Deepak Chopra for creating such an awesome and magical 21-day challenge with this theme, for the rest of us to grasp and incorporate into our lives! I’ve been blogging about this for several years now – and they have CREATED a hands-on practice that is easy to follow and incorporate into your own life – if you so choose! What we create (positive and negative) comes right back to us – via circumstance, people, relationships – you name it! If you want BETTER – BE positively HONEST with yourself – emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually – then you will show up honestly with Others. And on and on – the ripple effect is amazing! Trust me…
  • Generosity: how are you sharing yourself with others? Is it in a balanced, equal give-and-take way? By standing in your power, empowered, creating a win-win for everyone involved? If not, why not? Another sign of victim-rescue-bullying of the Drama Triangle otherwise…or martyrdom if you aren’t coming from an empowered place within…is it time for you to let this go yet?
  • Celebration with Fun & Play/Children’s Energy: watch a child at play – imagination abounds, glee and joy at just the PROCESS of creating something out of nothing! Return to the wonderment and joy of BEing a dynamic creative and fulfilled BEing of Light that you are! Truly yes you are. So am I. Every moment of the day…and CELEBRATE each glorious sunrise and sunset, the NEW creative day ahead, and then write about it in what I call my CELEBRATION Journal (used to be the Gratitude Journal up until this year). My friend Julie in Vancouver Island suggested we both think of it as a CELEBRATION now, which is MORE than just Gratitude…
  • Determination: allowing yourself, once you KNOW what your WISHES are to CREATE in the moment, to envision these wishes WITH heartfelt INTENTION, determined to ‘see’ it come to fruition within your Life! Without limitations or restrictions or second-guessing…allow your vision to fly up to the Cosmos like a balloon, filled with ALL of your heartfelt wishes and dreams and intentions – that are HEARTFELT, not of Ego-mind origin! There is a difference.
  • Tempering Arrogance: this one we all have issue with – as Human Beings – we cannot live down here on Earth without the Ego (or the Monkey Mind that likes to assist the Ego) to resist change, BE RIGHT/self-righteous, MY way is the BEST because it JUST IS! Etc etc etc…this is all coming from Ego not the heart with Loving kindness, compassion, forgiveness and on and on…do you ‘see’ the difference?
  • Leo Rules, Physically: the back and spine (having the backbone to support your own wishes/dreams of your Truest Self), exhaustion/heat exhaustion (burning the candle from both ends – why?), the HEART! And Inflammation of any or all these areas means you haven’t been listening to your physical body’s needs! This Moon cycle, if you aren’t paying proper attention to yourself, your needs, your physical body’s needs, then any of the areas I’ve already mentioned will be ‘talking to you’ via pain, discomfort etc. If they do, TALK to those areas of your body – ASK them what it is they NEED from you, heartfully, lovingly, and provide it. Don’t ignore it…
DSC04642

Coming from a HEARTFELT place WILL MELT negative issues you may encounter/experience this Moon cycle. Invite yourself AND others INTO your heart. Create peaceful solutions, together. Co-creating spaces – all themes I’ve been blogging about since 2009! To push us all along to this end, we will also experience the following:

  • A YOD, the Finger of God, points directly at the Sun/Moon aka New Moon in Leo position, as of today! The two planets that require each of us to LET GO of OLD PATTERNS OF CONDITIONING this Moon cycle, who create the base of this formation, are Pluto Rx (retrograde, inner-directed and therefore personalized transformational energy) within Capricorn (how we look at and expect material gain in our lives, plus focus on reputation, the public aspect of self, goals we set for ourselves for long-term gain) – how do you EMPOWER yourself, create win-win situations vs. power and control struggles Within and Without? Then there are BOTH Neptune Rx and the North Node Rx in Pisces – both are personalized (taking things personally, BEing hypersensitive about it, for a reason!) AND directed to make us ‘SEE’ in ourselves – HOW are you IMAGINING a BETTER and GREATER world/life for yourself despite what came before now for you? OR, are you still stuck on that Old Drama Triangle (from the Old Age of Pisces) of “I’m a Victim, Rescue ME!” Or “I feel Persecuted/Bullied! Help me! DO THIS FOR ME!” Or, “I cannot stand my Victim position, so I’ll just go out there and RESCUE someone else instead!” The latest version of this Drama Triangle we are all dealing with in 2016 has been MARTYRDOM – “I’ll do this on behalf of the rest of the family, the company, the world even! And no matter how much it hurts, or harms, or kills me, I will not refrain from the challenges!” Or words to that effect…thoughts, feelings, behaviours, habits…just saying – we are ALL undergoing rapid changes Within to LET GO OF THESE attitudes and beliefs from our collective past lives we lived within the Age of Pisces. The MORE you LET GO and begin to IMAGINE a magical, creative Life of wonderment and joy that your Soul envisions for you, the sooner you’ll EMPOWER yourself to BE more in the Now, leave the past in the past, and the future to the Unknown, AND empower all of those you interact and relate to daily, in turn! BE the change, BE the peace, BE the love, BE the Co-Creator of YOUR LIFE! This is what LEO and the New Moon are signalling for us now.
  • Grand Trine in Water: this is interesting, very interesting. Three of the Asteroid Goddesses (Juno – Sacred Marriage – in Scorpio + Pallas Athena – Warrior for Equality – in Pisces + Vesta – Home/Hearth/Sexuality with focused intention – in Cancer) within the element of water (feminine gifts of feelings, emotions, intuition, insightfulness, symbols, and allowing yourself to receive all of these) are connected via love lines with one another. How are you allowing yourself to receive any or all of the above, for you? Then honestly stay with it all, deal with it all, forgive and move on, lovingly, with self and others? Huge AHA! moments, watershed moments to come, if you’ve been doing your Inner Self work up until this New Moon. If not, well, could seem like a tsunami hit, all at once. Be aware, BE in the moment, and know we are all undergoing this too! None of us are alone. Ever.
  • MERCURY! Yep, twill be the last and 3rd round of Mercury Rx (retrograde) coming up for us! Hooray! I love this timing, I find information I didn’t know I needed to know (depends on the sign Mercury is travelling through within my chart) AND in Virgo – Mercury (and VENUS!) are setting us up for the upcoming Solar Eclipse in Virgo September 1st (action we’ll take for the next 3.5 years of Life Experience on whatever we decide upon between now and then). A chance for do-overs in conversations, thoughts, ideas, decisions – this is Mercury Rx. HOW we communicate and what we CHOOSE to talk about. Interestingly, Mercury rules Virgo! So yes, we’ll BE in our minds a wee bit. The pre-Mercury Rx Shadow period begins August 10th, with Mercury finally Stationing Rx as of August 31st, then BEing Rx until September 21st (Autumnal Equinox timing!), Stationing Direct again September 22nd, and the post-Mercury Rx Shadow will continue until October 6th. REMEMBER: look at this period as a chance to ‘see’ what you’re saying/thinking/writing/sharing, to whom, and how, and why and when (especially your Inner Talk!), then during the actual Rx period, to whom, why and when do you feel you need to revisit that conversation or shared experience? And once Mercury is Direct again – the decisions you made between now and September 22nd, were they heartfully what you TRULY wanted/desired/ expected/wished for, or not? So again, once Direct, you have another chance to change your mind! Ensure that you keep tabs on major decisions made and when, so you can look back at this timing to ‘see’ how on track you heartfully were, co-creating with your Higher Self/Creative Self, truthfully. Allow Virgo’s Shadow need to BE perfect, to KNOW IT ALL NOW, and to BE of SERVICE beyond the call of duty (!!) to be part of your past responses. BE of Service, heartfully. Look after the health of your physical body, heartfully. BE in service to YOURSELF, creatively, lovingly.
Nose Hill Labyrinth 2016

Nose Hill Park Labyrinth with my Aries friend, Chris, leading!

And: The Leo New Moon calls for a NEW way to be a LEADER, within a team environment. How are you leading by your heart? This is totally different from “wearing your heart on your sleeve” – heartfully, Inside You, what is your motivation towards your intentions? Are you motived from your Ego/Mind or your Soul/Heart? This is the key difference. How are you leading the way, from Within, and for? What is YOUR unique gift to the world, that only you can create and share because You are YOU? Embrace your uniqueness in the world – don’t shrink from it! I will blog about Hilary Clinton, Venus’ synodic journey through Leo since August 2015 and how we women have been letting go of the old, and as of tomorrow (August 3rd) are consciously retrieving the NEW, step by step, as the powerful leaders we truly are! Stay tuned…

I’ve been actively looking for a day job for two years now – Virgo rules the daily job front, and happens to be my Rising Sign (making Mercury the ruler of my birth chart too!) and is the opposite sign to my Pisces Sun/Soul self – have I been embracing my true unique self that has incorporated ALL the experiences, and talents and skills that came along with it all, that are now reduced to my Resume? Am I truly looking for work (in addition to the Astrology, my passion and first love!) that reflects ALL of me? WHERE do I find ME in the work I look for? Interviews I had these last two years did not show the fruition of jobs because I was NOT in the right and proper frame of mind to SHOW UP authentically as ME. Sometimes we show up to BE what we think others want us to BE…we all have done this. I tell this tale to encourage all of us to BE authentic, as much as we can, in EVERY MOMENT, we can. BE honest, trust your heartfelt feelings/intuition, watch for the magic of signs and symbols in your environment that help lead you intuitively to YOUR next step, and CELEBRATE! You, yourself, your life. Always, in All Ways.

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Aries April 7, 2016

DSC04274

Easter Sunday Sunrise, Okotoks, AB

Another Moon cycle is winding down as I write this post. March came in like a Lamb and definitely went out like Lion – energetically speaking! We experienced the two Eclipses – Solar Eclipse in Pisces with the last New Moon March 8th, then a Lunar Eclipse in Libra with the Full Moon March 23rd. Tell me you didn’t undergo some excelerated inner growth?! I dare you….

We all left behind more of the Old Age of Pisces “drama triangle” roles behind us (victim and/or rescuer and/or persecutor/bully), many of you actually stepped off and away from that addiction for drama (!!) along the way. BEing in the moment, as your truest self, centred, at peace is the end game now. We can all learn to let go of our addiction to drama, to BE enLIGHTened Within! Keep on Keeping on everyone. Let’s move onto what’s in store for us in the next Moon cycle…

Tomorrow, Thursday April 6th, we begin a new New Moon at 5:24a MDT in the cardinal fire sign of Aries, where the Moon and Sun sit together at 18 degrees of Aries 05′. Check your charts – what House of Life Experience does Aries reside in? Could be one or two if it’s straddling between two Houses. Check your House cusps, they’ll tell you the starting degree/minute of the Sign therein. The cardinal fire of Aries demands the NEW, instinctually, physically, assertively. BE your own inner Warrior/Pioneer in ways never ventured into before now.

DSC04289

Easter Sunday Morning Sun Rise

The House in your chart that contains 18 degrees of Aries is the House of Life Experience you will be finding LIBERATION within soon enough, due to the upcoming conjunction between Uranus and Eris in June! We all begin to FEEL this need to BE our independent selves as of this New Moon cycle! Pay attention to yourself. Instinctual need to take Action, BE Assertive, bring forth your Inner Warrior of Courage, and Pioneer paths Within not travelled before now, will be key themes to look for.

Mars rules Aries, and currently sits within the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius (at 08 degrees) – this planet rules this New Moon cycle. Mars demands assertive action (not combative nor aggressive!) to stand UP for Yourself, your beliefs, and take your righful position re: your Life Purpose this Moon cycle.

In the New Moon chart, I see many players still within Pisces, and some that have moved off into Aries now. Interesting rolling stelliums in both signs – planets so close together they are figuratively ‘holding hands’ learning to work and play well with one another! Let’s take a closer look now:

Pisces contingent is:

  • Neptune then South Node Rx + Chiron + Ceres: here we have the planet of Dissolution, Imagination, Dreams/dreaming, and Magic, Movies and llusion (Neptune) hanging back from the rest. What did the previous Pisces New Moon dissolve in you? Did your Ego-self allow the old suit of Drama to be removed once and for all? If not, you have another opportunity to allow this to happen within this new Moon cycle!
  • Any unresolved issues from our collective past (South Node) re: addictions, escapism, drama (!) will continue to be healed (Chiron) along with any disconnection wounds from our Spiritual bodies.
  • Nurturance of Self (Ceres) is key! She wants to show us what we needed for nurturance as children AND how we allow nurturing in now as adults.
  • Together, the South Node Rx + Chiron + Ceres are showing us a Higher Way of Letting Go via forgiveness of self and others in order to HEAL our wounds of spiritual disconnect we’ve carrying around for many lifetimes within our cells/DNA, then thoughts/actions of kindness, gentleness, and love with self and others come forth.

Aries contingent is:

  • Venus, then Sun/Moon + Uranus + Eris: our Desire Body planet, Venus, brings forth a need for solitude, alone time, space to connect with ME, Myself & I this month! How else will you know for sure what it is YOU want and require moving forward? What do you DESIRE (Venus) to attract into your life now? How will you answer this question if you are running around willy nilly looking after others’ needs and not your own? Take time out for YOU this month – very important – and listen to your Heart’s Desires. Journal about it all. Take time out for YOU.
  • A whole lot of forward movement with the rest of these Aries players! Once they ‘hear’ what it is you truly want/need – what is your Intention via Venus? When you do that work, then the Soulful action will take place (Sun), with Emotional Body issues to feel, intuit from, and receive hits of insight of (Moon) regarding what Daily Habits are no longer serving You, blocking your path forward (!!). BE honest with yourselves. Any resistance from your Ego-self will indicate you are on the right track!
  • Then, Expect the Unexpected (Uranus) and allow your futuristic innovations and originality to come forth! You’ve been asking for the changes – are you prepared and ready to RECEIVE them? Will your Ego-self and/or mind create Fear-based resistance to keep you back behind that Old Curtain of Illusion/Delusion Neptune is wanting to dissolve for you?
  • Then Eris brings forth that which you have long neglected Within you – needs and desires that have been IGNORED, by You! Eris doesn’t like to be ignored, nor does she enjoy being left out of the party! Otherwise deep anger can rise up, seemingly out of nowhere! Take note! If you become angry, even full of rage at any point within this Moon cycle – this is a good sign that you have been triggered to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ whatever it is you have DENIED yourself up until now! Again, daily journalling will help you keep track of what’s coming up for you. And no projecting your anger or blame others for that which you have denied yourself! It was never their responsibility in the first place! The buck starts and stops with you.

Mercury will go Rx (Retrograde) for the second time this year this month. I will blog about those details in another post! Stay tuned!

DSC04304

Sheep River embankment

Good grounding for us all due to an Earth Grand Trine connection between Pluto in Capricorn, Vesta in Taurus and Jupiter + Vertex Point + North Node Rx in Virgo! That Vertex Point – fated/destined people/circumstances this way come! Karmic healing will be very LOUD due to Jupiter’s influence to head directly INTO the direction our Souls wish us take (North Node)! Yay! Watch out for the Shadow portion of Virgo here – procrastination due to perfectionistic tendencies…just saying….

Pluto continues to TRANSFORM our integrity issues around material gain – what is it you FEAR most about receiving materially? Pluto is sending a love line to Jupiter Rx in Virgo where we want to BE of service – Pluto wants all of us to BE emPOWERed by Jupiter’s prosperity influences. Unexpected doors of opportunity will open – walk through them! Don’t hesitate, don’t make excuses – just GO!

Could be an invitation to a party, to coffee conversations, to a referral for other work – we never know what is waiting for us around the next corner unless we MOVE and trust that our intuition knows best! If alarm bells go off – ensure it’s not your Ego-self having a tantrum or is in resistance (i.e. meeting new people in a new place, feeling unsafe etc). Take a deep breath, go anyway – because if anything is really wrong with the situation, all you need do is walk away. As long as we show up, we are taking action and living Life.

DSC04359

Sheep River Embankment 2016

Vesta brings forth concentrated focus to create something beautiful for yourself with Pluto and the gang in Virgo! Transform the fears Pluto peels back to uncover, then allow old fears to surface (if any), meet up with those karmic peeps/conditions that trigger old stuff, and WALK through it, BREATHE through it, HEAL IT. Be Not Afraid. I’d like to BE that contented Bull, chewing its cud in the middle of a bright, sunny pasture, laying back with pride, smiling to myself, saying, “How you doin’?” and nodding with relief that I DID IT! This is the Taurus portion of the program – enjoying all my senses, content Within myself that I valued myself enough to show up and create something beautiful that is my Life!

And if, after all this planetary assistance already mentioned above doesn’t help you, well guess what? We have a T-Square to help push up the inner pressure to CHANGE! I love it! Saturn in Sagittarius sits at the apex of this formation, asking us to head forward with Faith and Trust, being responsible for looking for our True Life Purpose, Why Am I Here? Saturn is being squared by, wait for it….none other than the South Node Rx and Chiron in Pisces, both sitting in opposition to…wait for it…Jupiter + Vertex Point + North Node Rx!!! Yay! If you think you’ll dodge that Earth Grand Trine bringing forth karmic healing, think again! LOL! We all have a wee see-saw effect going on between the Pisces peeps and the Virgo peeps.

DSC04338

Sand Castles anyone!?

“Will I run BACK into my addictions/escapism/denial tendencies, do the Drama of Old (South Node)  that feels SO FAMILIAR, and deny being HEALED (Chiron)? Will I run forward INTO that karmic situation, see those human peeps I used to know/work for or with, hear what they have to say (and say what I needed to say yet didn’t?) no matter how prepared I may NOT be (remember that procrastination/perfectionism thingy). OR….will I DO BOTH and create an ‘AND’ here?” Having a Fire New Moon cycle means double-quick time and timing folks! What used to take us years or even decades to work through, can be done in almost nanoseconds now, I kid you not! BELIEVE and it will BE True!

This T-Square brings MUCHO Inner Stress and Tension to create CHANGE! Enjoy! Take Action to Let GO of the past/old trauma/issues AND move forward through whatever karmic situation presents itself – tis a test don’t you know? Walk throught it, breathe, love it, forgive and move along to that next door of opportunity that’s a-knocking!

Blessed BE!

The Astrology Experience…

I recently heard through the grapevine that potential clients were vacillating about whether or not to commit to an Astrology reading chiefly because of FEAR. Plain and simple, Ego-manufactured fear to NOT go into that Unknown called an Astrology reading. “OMG! What if she tells me something bad?! What if she tells me something I don’t want to know….?” and on and on it goes. Sounds like victim-thinking to me – and Drama Triangle excuses to stay in victim-mode and NOT move forward to make one’s life better, expanded by truer inner awareness etc.

This is how our Ego-self works my friends! Continual fear-based excuses, drama, and resistance to STAY PUT no matter what! “You can’t make me! I won’t go there! Leave me alone! La la la la la!….” We all do it, and the deeper the fear, the more denial we are in about our true intentions to begin with. THIS is why I love love love Astrology! It shows each of us (including me!) how and why and where we allow our Ego-self’s fears to interfere, preventing us to grow and mature emotionally and spiritually! Truely, it does.

As I thought about this, I decided clarification is needed for everyone to understand what truly IS the experience of an Astrology reading/session! And I asked several of my current clients (long-time, returning and new!) to help out with their Testimonials positioned throughout this post. Here we go…

I have used a number of astrologers in my life. I kept switching because I’d never found one that I felt I understood clearly and who left me feeling I had a complete reading—until Laurie Rae. Laurie Rae’s knowledge of all things astrological is extensive. The generosity with which she shares this information both verbally and in handouts helped me have some aha moments and opened my eyes to patterns I had somehow missed in my life. The self-exploration that Laurie Rae facilitates is educational, motivational, inspirational and most of all healing. She’s truly gifted at what she does.

Firstly, Astrology is NOT an entertainment. If you want a chuckle and mock Astrology, go read your horoscope via the Sun-based Astrology used for over 100 years in publications to sell newspapers and magazines (no lie here – publication magnate William Randolph Hearst was the very first to bring Sun-based Astrology into his papers to increase circulation in the early 1900’s).

Secondly, an ethical and true Astrologer will never read for you in a bar, cafe or other public place! Too much noise, distraction, and most importantly, no privacy for the personal information that comes out of any chart reading. End of.

Astrologers have the affinity to do the following:

  • Be counselors, hearing what you say, seeing beyond the words, and getting to the root of the real issue, sometimes within a matter of minutes. Despite only having met you two minutes ago! We are personable, compassionate, and business-like all at the same time!
  • Be honest with each client. Total honesty does not mean telling the client they are bad, or about to die or any other negative situation the Ego-self can come up with. I do not know of any Astrologer capable of predicting death. We are ALL unique; our uniqueness is what makes each of us, US. Astrology supports your uniqueness, shows how you ARE unique and why. And that it is OKAY to be unique! To love yourself BECAUSE of it. Not to poo-poo you, discredit your personality or decisions in life. The planetary cycles, past and current, will SHOW that you signed up for the challenges you undergo this lifetime. It is uncanny, and it is true.
  • Find out WHY the client needs assistance at this time. This can be difficult for the client to put into words. They can be so overwhelmed by emotion, fear, and events that all they know is this: “I am lost and cannot find myself! Help!” Coming in for a reading of your birth chart, with an eye on where the current transits of the planets are activating events or circumstances in your life, can make all the difference to helping a client to COPE with it all. There truly is an END time to it all. An end of a much-needed inner growth cycle to make the client AWARE of themselves for whatever reason.
  • Bring much-needed Coping Tools into the mix. We all have Life-coping tools, the older we are, the more tools and wisdom we each have. Astrologers are usually very insightful and intuitive, they are highly sensitive to the world around them, therefore ‘see’ beyond the physical reality. We use Astrology charts to bring this gift into the client’s world, personalizing it for them to ‘see’ themselves more clearly. My clients happen to receive much-needed guidance, healing and tools for Self-nurturance. I do not do the work for them! They must be READY, WILLING and WANT TO do their own Inner work. We all must mature and move along at some point – no matter if we are in our teens, twenty’s or even our sixties! When the TIME is right, we will show up for the self-awareness process. It takes the baby step forward, to walk through our fears of resistance. Doing it despite the fear is walking through the fear! Yay!
  • Know when WE cannot help a client! This is key. We are not psychiatrists nor psychologists. Ethical Astrologers will tell the client NO that is not my job. An Astrologer who takes your money without being honest with you is not ethical. We do NOT condone allowing a client to think we have ALL the answers to your dilemmas or challenges. We will refer you to someone else who we know has better answers and processes to help your situation. Astrology is a TOOL, a very good one, to help each of us cope with the WHY and WHEN of things in relation to each of us. It is not a be-all, end-all tool. And it doesn’t work for everyone. I have fired clients because I knew I was not the right person for them, nor did I have the tools or processes to help them. I referred them to others more qualified than I.
  • Keep their clients notified of upcoming planetary cycles. It is like a tune-up, going to see your Doctor or massage therapist or acupunturist on a regular basis. It is what keeps my local, national and international clients coming back year after year.

We ALL undergo the same cycles around the same ages. The Sun’s path from birthday to birthday is called the Solar Return. The Moon’s path around the birth chart is the monthly Lunar Return or what I call the Moon Cycle Report. Also with the Moon cycles, I am able to show women when they are the most fertile in their monthly cycles! Saturn structures our lives every 7 years, returning to its starting point every 28-29 years in life – and most of us will live to experience three of these! Jupiter Returns every 12 years, creating a new cycle of prosperity, expansion of our beliefs and faith beyond current Ego-fears. Mars Returns every two years jump-starting a huge new burst of energy to DO something new in our life!

And my personal favourite, the Uranus Opposition aka the MidLife Awareness Timing! Yes, I can tell you when you will (or did) experience yours and the themes surrounding it. Yet another Life Passage into maturity! Venus and Mars and Libra in your chart show me about marriage, partnership and relationships in your life. Ask me about it!

To be very clear: if you have NEVER experienced an Astrology reading ever before, the first step is to have a birth chart/natal chart reading. End of. This will introduce you to the wonderfully clarifying world of Astrology, show you the deep layers of insight and explanations of WHY you are WHO you are. Simple. Then, if you thirst for more timely and in-depth Inner Perception, your Astrologer will assist you with asssessing all current planetary cycles and which one stands out the most! And you go from there!

When I first reached out to Laurie Rae, I was in a painful place. I had lost my job and, as it was the middle of an economic crisis, I had little hope of finding a new one. At the same time, I felt that so many of my childhood struggles were resurfacing. I knew enough about astrology to worry myself. I saw that there were squares between transiting planets, like Pluto and Saturn, and I was afraid. I understood that I needed to reach out to a professional. From our first communication, Laurie Rae exuded patience and compassion. During our first reading, and all of the many readings to follow over the course of several years, Laurie Rae has been professional and kind. She is always so prepared–it is clear that she has spent a great deal of time gathering materials and ideas for our readings. And she is generous with her follow-up time, as well–sending resources and thoughtful emails. I am grateful Laurie Rae and I met, and I wholeheartedly recommend her services. -LS

A typical scenario for an Astrology reading will be the following:

  • Client decides they need to KNOW MORE about whatever is going in their life. They ask around, perhaps research via the internet, and follow their own inner guidance system, trusting they will find the right and proper Astrolger to help them out.
  • Client contacts said Astrologer (phone or email) and after an initial discussion or two, decide upon WHAT type of reading is required, and set up an appointment for the reading. Key information required from the client will be the date, time and place of their birth to create the natal or birth chart. Fees and payment will be discussed at this time, as well as the meeting place location for the reading.
  • Before the appointment and reading, the Astrologer will create the chart, look through that person’s planetary cycles to suss out any underlying influences that may have caused the client to call in the first place, and if they are like me (!) decide upon which cheat-sheets and relevant handouts that client will take home after the reading, along with the chart(s) relevant to the reading. I want my clients to become comfortable with THEIR birth chart! It is their Sky Chart after all, of what they agreed to do, experience and BE this lifetime.  I believe in educating every client with the same initial information. After that, it is up to the client to ask me for more with each succeeding reading.
  • At the date, time and place scheduled, the reading commences. I always do a mini Astrology 101 overview so that my new clients get an idea of how Astrology works. As I do this, I begin to weave THEM into the story and they begin to ‘see’ themselves in a new light. I will ask questions along the way, ensuring I am zeroing in on what the client needs to know at the time, and has asked for to begin with. By the end of 2 hours, the client should be, and usually is, more than satisfied with what I have shared with them, about them, for their self-awareness and current personal growth.
  • I always record the reading and am able to create either an mp3 audio file that is emailed to the client within 24 hours,or onto a cd that will be mailed to them, also within 24 hours of the reading. I send each client home with their chart(s), handouts and cheat-sheets, along with the knowledge that they can call or email me at anytime to review, ask more questions, come back for another reading – whatever they need to help them deal with whatever event or issue is coming up for them. I want the client to have a way to return to their reading as many times as they need, to understand themselves better, to heal, and know it is okay to BE who they truly are!
  • If a client is uncertain as to what other reading they require after the initial reading, I will let them know of the planetary cycles occurring in their life, chat about what cycles may be of more benefit than others. I even have several clients who now see me for BOTH their personal and business cycle readings!

I have been seeing Laurie Rae for Astrological readings for many years personally, and within the past few years also for my business. I now look forward to the future growth of my business as a sole-proprietor, and myself, personally, with eyes wide open.

I’m always amazed how in-depth the information is that comes out of looking at a circle with a bunch of lines, numbers and squiggles!

I am my business. When I grow personally, so too does my business; when I’m in a slump energetically, so is my business. Because of this, I now have a better understanding of what, and then when, to do certain things for my company and myself. It’s like having your New Years’ resolutions set out for you, so you know and feel you are on the right path, or receive the assistance needed to get back on the right path.

Laurie Rae is a business life coach for me, and I’m proud to say she is also my sister. xo

As you can see from the testimonials of the clients I have seen so far in 2016 alone, Astrology is a tool that helps anyone ‘see’ below the surface to the root of whatever is going on/seemingly wrong in their life. It takes courage to allow the carpet to be pulled back that has been hiding YOU, your fears, and self-awareness from the Light of Illumination! I invite those of you who have been thinking about it, but not taking action upon it quite yet, to reach out, contact me, and begin your Inner Journey, looking INto the Astrological Mirror of You! I look forward to hearing from you and BEing of Service to you.

Most sincerely,
