Hi All! It’s been a whole Moon cycle since I last blogged – a lot has been happening in my personal and professional world since.

I have created a totally NEW blogsite – Laurie Rae’s House of Astrology – and the link is here Laurie Rae’s House of Astrology.

I have written today’s New Moon in Aries post therein too – take a look! If you wish to continue to receive my Cosmic Weather posts, please add your email to the House of Astrology list. I look forward to seeing you all there.

In the meantime, I take this opportunity to say a heartfelt “THANK YOU!” to all of my current followers of Rainbows and Astrology. I believe I needed to ‘bridge’ pieces of myself since returning to Calgary from Vancouver Island in 2013 through those rainbows (!) and feel I have finally arrived to a new place Within myself here in 2017.

It could be my 2nd Saturn Return timing in January 2017 (!) or this New Moon in Aries cardinal fire energy wanting to step out in a brand new way – or a combination of both.

I am finding my way forward again after several years of caregiving within our wee family here in Calgary. We are all doing fine and our middle sister Tamra is still amongst us.

Onward and Upward Everyone! I look forward to seeing you all at Laurie Rae’s House of Astrology soon!

Many heartfelt HUGS and much Love Light,

Most sincerely,

Full Moon in Cancer: Cardinal Grand Square…

dsc05155Initiating something NEW (Cardinal) and with Illumination (Full Moon) intuition, feeling, and sensitivity (Cancer). The Moon rules the cardinal sign of Cancer – therefore highly sensitive feelings being dealt with during the Full Moon phase which begins at 4:35a MST January 12th and lasts until the Disseminating Moon phase, January 15th at 4:48p MST.

The coordinates for this first Full Moon of 2017: 22 degrees Cancer 27′ – where does this reside within your birth chart? Here is where the Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Soul (Sun) – what are yours?

Cancer themes, as a cardinal water sign, bring the following:

  • Family: Mom, mothering, nurturance experienced as a child and how you seek it now. The relationship you have currently with your Mother – or what you may miss right now because she has passed over. Whatever the situation, know that this phase will be highly sensitive for everyone involved. All conversation, however heartfully meant, may still be misconstrued in some way. Be aware of HOW you communicate your needs at this time. And perhaps there is a message you wish to send to the loved ones passed on – do so if it is what you need for yourself at this time. How does your Home environment, now, bring forth feelings from your home of origin? Is something missing now that needs to be revisited and brought back up to the surface, into the Now?
  • Possessiveness/Neediness: the Shadow side of Cancer – holding onto someone or something far longer than necessary – prevents others from moving on with their own life. And prevents you from moving on with your own. This can also come about as co-dependent relationships – being overly needy – leaning on others rather than standing up for yourself, within your own life.
  • Emotional Needs: how well do you listen to your feelings? When you notice them, what is your first reaction? Run and hide from them? Feel them? Walk through them, no matter their intensity? Distract yourself with food, TV, online games, any addictions? This is avoidance of feeling that which we are meant to feel – deeply, widely, heartfully. Humans must learn to feel it all – it is our destiny, our reason for being here on Earth. The more we run away from these feelings and emotions, the less we are being authentically Self. Being compassionate and showing empathy goes a long way to connecting with someone who feels vulnerable at this time – including yourself!
  • Children: the ability to conceive, to carry a child to term, to give birth – to someone or something – you feel strongly about! Nurturance comes forth here again too. How do you nurture your Inner Child Self? Do you hug yourself, daily? Love Thyself As Thy Neighbour…take care of Self first, then others in your life. Most important to do so.
  • Physically, Cancer Rules: the breasts and chest cavity, the pancreas, the stomach, stomach gas and ulcers, and tumours. According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) the element of Earth, ruled by Saturn, governs the Spleen, Stomach, and Pancreas. We affect these organs by overthinking things or not liking new ways of doing our life. The Development Stage here is TRANSFORMATION. So if you worry, or “find it difficult ‘digesting new ideas’ there will be issues with your blood sugar, digestion, and being ANGRY at this time. Are you misplacing your faith in your own ability to control the physical world around you? The Pancreas has a dual function (both an Exocrine and Endocrine gland) hence reflects the duality of the physical Universe – the ability to digest ideas AND to extract that which is not only sweet, but Life sustaining too” [compassionatedragon.com]. What is it you need that sustains you? Do you know what it is? What will this Full Moon Illuminate for you in this regard?

dsc05269The planetary players within the Cardinal Grand Square formation during this Full Moon phase, creating stress and tension Within to assist us to create CHANGE in our respective lives, are:

  • Full Moon at 22 degrees Cancer 28′: bringing forth all of the above mentioned themes. This is our Emotional Body’s connection and daily habits we’ve formed.
  • Sitting opposite, the Sun at 22 degrees Capricorn 27′: here the unconscious desires of our respective Souls are being Illuminated. Think back to December 28th’s New Moon in Capricorn – what was hidden within the Darkness of your Ego-Self that now has emerged into the Light of this Full Moon? What was it your Ego-Self was so afraid of to be known by you, consciously, before now? Capricorn rules how we DO material gain in our lives, the goals we set for the long-term, our reputation within our careers, and being ruled by Saturn – all the responsibilities we’ve gathered for us to be busy with. Is it time to let go of some of those responsibilities? Have your goals in fact changed? Within the Full Moon – the Moon’s emotional nature can be polarized with the Sun’s active nature, creating a push-pull situation – and more stress Within! Do I feel or do I act? How about learning to do BOTH? Create an ‘AND’ here – feel your feelings, listen to your intuition AND then take the action your Soul seeks! And Pluto is near to the Sun for this Full Moon – bringing forth any/all issues of power and control. The key here is EMPOWERMENT – for all parties involved. A win-win situation, heartfully.
  • Squaring to both the Moon and the Sun is Jupiter at 22 degrees Libra 11′: Since September 10, 2016, Jupiter has been expanding our boundaries within the realms of partnerships and relationships. Making it LOUD and clear what is MISSING in your life at this time. The last time Jupiter was in Libra – September 2004 until near the end of October, 2005 – what was going on within your partnerships and relationships at that time? 12 years later (one complete cycle of Jupiter) you may find those same issues of moving beyond restrictive boundaries you unconsciously set for yourself are  coming forth once more. Or, perhaps you already made the changes since then? How many of you married in 2004/05 or found ‘the love of your life’? Is he/she still in your life? Or are you seeking that love, yet? Or have you lost that love? Grief is the process of coping with ALL human emotions seemingly occurring all at once! It can be overwhelming, all-consuming, and ongoing (when will it all stop and be over?). A person doesn’t have to die for us to grieve their absence in our life. Whatever is leftover from any past relationship or partnership needs to be healed, now.
  • In opposition to Jupiter, and squaring to both the Moon and the Sun, is Eris at 22 degrees of Aries 32′: partnered closely by Uranus at 20 degrees Aries 39′ and Ceres at 24 degrees Aries 28′! Talk about a vanguard here – Eris has been systematically assisting us with gender re-balancing – empowerment for both genders, equally. Hence all the wars going on in in the world since Eris entered Aries in 1925! Equality of the feminine and the masculine is riddled with complex machinations. Uranus brings forth innovation and Unexpectedness, while Ceres asks for nurturance, end of. Since WWI women have slowly been taking their power back, in the workplace, creating discord and imbalance at home because SHE isn’t staying home anymore! Look at the transformation WORK has taken since 1925, and the almighty Dollar, and Careers are not just for men! How are we doing today? Aries brings forth the Spiritual Warrior – asserting ourselves, no matter the gender, to BE seen and heard. Aries brings forth the Pioneer and the courage to BE unique in our respective worlds. How are YOU doing with all of this? What massive changes have you undergone, especially since 2012’s connection of Eris with Pluto and Uranus? Talk about transformation. How independent are you, truly, today? Is it more inter-dependent? Intra-dependent? Or still co-dependent? Hhhmmm…

dsc05276So what’s the bottom line here folks? Emotional sensitivity + feeling those feelings and emotions + taking time to listen to your intuitive insights of next steps forward so that your Sun/Soul self can take that Action into the Light of this Full Moon. To create NEW CHANGE within your life! All four cardinal signs, therefore the cardinal points of the chart, are being affected here: Self + Home + Relationships/Partnerships + Career.

Jupiter wants you to expand OUT of bounds into new relationships and partnerships. Ceres and Eris and Uranus continue to call to us for greater self-nurturance AND equality AND allowing our true authentic selves to BE seen and heard! Pluto continues to transform our ongoing battle with power and control (!!) be it with our Ego-self, our partners/friends, neighbours, family members – whomever shows up to show us what it is that we are still hanging onto, from the Darkness Within, that needs to be healed, to grow and evolve into more loving, accepting, compassionate and empathetic BEings aka human beings!

Blessed BE and Namaste!

Chaotic Neptunian November!

If you’ve been feeling confused this month, you’re not alone.

If you’ve been wondering why things seem to slip through your fingers this month, you’re not alone.

If you’ve been overwhelmed by emotions and feelings, you’re not alone.

If you’ve been living your life in one reality, then out of no where realize it’s been an illusion all along, you’re not alone.

If technology seems to be one huge tangled up mess, you’re not alone.

After posting my previous post, “Neptunian November”, I thought it timely now to delve into the OPPOSITE sign to the mutable water sign of Pisces (ruled by Neptune) which is the mutable earth sign, VIRGO.

dsc05013We must remember this: when a planet and/or Moon’s Node is moving through a sign, the opposite sign is also influenced energetically. There is a mix and a pull between the two signs and planets/Nodes etc. all at the same time. And we may not be aware of the opposite sign’s influence to what we are learning about ourselves until later on.

What is Virgo? Virgo loves to BE of Service out in the world, to serve and BE there for others. There’s this grounded practicality to it – hands-on definitely – getting our hands dirty in some regard because we LOVE to DO this work of Service, which turns out to be organizing something (usually paperwork) or people or events or closets or whatever needs to be organized.

Another aspect of Virgo is about the PROCESS. We love love love processes – aka rules of the road – and perfecting them. We ALL have Virgo and Pisces in our charts and therefore are influenced by this Chaotic Neptunian November whereby Neptune and the South Node of the Moon are together at 9 degrees of Pisces – all month! Creating a continuation of the Halloween’s energetic tendency of having the veils between the worlds thin and easily accessible. ALL MONTH. So what does this mean to all of us?

dsc05069The South Node of the Moon is where Karma lays. Unresolved issues from our past – be it this lifetime or a culmination of other past lives. Something unresolved this way comes – to BE resolved somehow, somewhen. Within the sign of Pisces, the South Node brings forth issues of Drama – victim/rescue me/I feel persecuted! – in some regard within your personality, reality, illusion, delusion of what you ‘see’ to BE your respective life. For all of us.

Bringing in Virgo, where the North Node of the Moon sits exactly opposite, at 09 degrees of Virgo, comes forth the path our Soul wants us to head into. There are the high and low sides to every sign of the Zodiac. For Pisces: that Drama Triangle is one of the lows – along with escapist and addictive tendencies in order to escape the current reality of our lives.

Within Virgo, the low is Perfectionism. That Ego-brain/mind/Self’s need to BE perfect, not make any mistakes, end of, or else! For some of us, this can be extreme – terror in fact – of making a mistake. Can you ‘see’ the enormity of energy it takes to BE PERFECT here? Yikes! Talk about carrying around a huge stick to beat ourselves up with, constantly. No wonder North America is such a stressed out continent of people!

dsc05006What’s Pisces/Virgo and the Moon’s Nodes message here? Especially with the veils between the worlds being so thin and accessible all month? Remember also, we began this Moon cycle in Scorpio (fixed water sign) on October 30th – just a day before Halloween or All Hallows Eve. Scorpio brings forth ALL our FEARS to the surface and out of the Darkness of the New Moon to be revealed by the Full Moon, into the full light. To BE SEEN. Now, during this Last QTR Moon phase we’re in currently, whereby we all experience our respective “Crisis of Consciousness in regards to the Ego-Self”. Meaning: something our Ego-Self DID NOT want us to know or be aware of or conscious of – magically revealed itself to us as of this week! Remember that Neptune, ruler of Pisces, can be nebulous. Pisces itself, as one of 3 water signs, is fog, mist, nebulous. And how many times this week did we wake up to fog? Interesting the timing of Nature with the planetary alignments.

Mercury rules Virgo – so yes, the Ego-mind/brain/Self comes into play here because Mercury represents the logical brain. “How can I BE perfectly logical and right and on time and always eager to please all at the same time?!”

Neptune rules Pisces – the spiritual/divine essence of BEing of Service BEYOND the Ego-Self/brain/mind – going WITH the flow, energetically and otherwise, WITH your True Self/essence/eternal BEINGNESS that is God. With Love, Compassion, Joy and Forgiveness. Without Drama. Without control over/power over, trying to BE Perfect.

Do you see how the Drama within the realm of Pisces is triggered by the Virgo need to BE Perfect? The low of one sign triggers the low of the opposite sign. If it didn’t work out exactly the way our Ego-mind/brain/Self wanted it to – then wham! Victim-thinking, being, o woe is me feeling…

Then, of course, that hot potato is way too hot to handle, so lets find someone to BLAME (persecution) or to be RESCUED by (the rescue portion of the Drama Triangle program). Huh? Bloody Hell! I did it again…

So we have Neptune AND the South Node currently in Pisces at 09 degrees.

We also have the North Node in Virgo, at 9 degrees, sitting opposite. Mercury rules Virgo and is currently in Sagittarius (18 degrees) the mutable fire sign, which has been creating a stress/tension line to BOTH Nodes + Neptune. Sagittarius is how we seek our Higher Truth, BE our Truest Self. Huh. Do you see how the planets support themes around the chart?

Sagittarian ArrowMercury’s position in Sagittarius wants us to LET GO of perfectionism. Human beings are the last to know that we already ARE perfection – in God’s eyes. End of. BEing HUMAN is just as important – as in, it is OKAY to BE wrong. To make mistakes. To feel our feelings. To laugh at ourselves and pick ourselves up and move along, WITH Love and Compassion and Forgiveness.

THIS is the key: how are we loving ourselves despite our drama, addictions, escapist tendencies, and perfectionistic ways? With compassion, or yet another stick to beat ourselves up with? And forgiveness – yes! Please forgive yourselves along the way.

Each of us is a beautiful work in progress, and each of us has our own unique PROCESS to learning how to BE our True Self, along the way. It just so happens we are all undergoing yet another rare event (Neptune + the South Node in Pisces whilst Neptune Stations Direct – aka standing still all month!) that supports all of us to LET GO of Drama AND Perfectionism – even if it is only a teeny tiny wee bit more – from however we’ve been living our respective lives already THIS lifetime AND from whatever we carried forward from our other lifetimes. To this moment in Time, here on Earth, in 2016.

Love your Ego-mind/brain/Self. Use compassion. And forgive it. Over and over and over for as long as it takes. “What will it take, now, for me to be comfortable with being human, to make mistakes and love myself for it. What will it take?” or words to this effect – say it as a mantra – giving it out to the Universe to help you help yourself through these Chaotic, nebulous, times.

Namaste

Full Moon in Taurus…

At 6:53a MST November 14th, the Moon sits in opposition to the Sun, creating the Full Moon phase. The Moon will be at 22 degrees of Taurus 38′ and the Sun, 22 degrees of Scorpio 38′. The Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Sun/Soul at this time.

dsc05068Looking back to the New Moon in Scorpio October 30th, what fears have you faced and surpassed these past two weeks? What is this Full Moon Illuminating for you? Bringing a bright flashlight or spotlight for you to SEE clearly that once was hiding for dear life within your Inner Darkness? What has been revealed into the Light for your awareness?

Taurus rules the throat, the thyroid gland, your ability to Speak Your Truth! Any issues with your throat this Full Moon brings your attention/awareness towards what you aren’t able to, or are afraid to, speak up about!

The Scorpio portion of the program (via the Sun’s Light) shows us clearly how much MORE passion we are allowing to flow within our lives, compared to where we were October 30th. Or, are you passionately fearful? Or, perhaps passionately fearless?

Venus rules Taurus, and therefore this Full Moon, which some are calling a Supermoon. The last time a Full Moon was in Taurus AND this close to Earth, was back in January 1948. Interesting. How close and loud does it have to get for you to VALUE yourself? Feel WORTHY? BE content with your lot in life? Are you like the Taurean Bull, contentedly chewing your cud in a lovely fragrant, alive pasture surrounded by warm sunshine and green growth, birds chirping, insects buzzing by? Taking your time to smell those roses, BE in Nature, and ruminate about what you truly VALUE in life?

dsc05024Taurus rules the 2nd House of Life Experience in the birth chart. Venus, as ruler, beckons us to work (some might call it bull-work) within our own strength of character, the values we grew up with, the values we work out to BE our own (not someone else’s or society’s – MINE) that enriches our self-esteem and self-confidence and WORTHINESS. All of this, in turn, is wrapped within our unique set of talents, skills and experience we bring to the table of Life that assists each of us to “bring home the bacon” aka income. Which in turn we use to buy or experience those things we value. Business to business – B2B – Venus in Capricorn – what do you Desire from the businesses you use? How do they value you as a customer/client/partner? How do you value them? Is there a dovetailing of values or a gap?

Within the Full Moon chart, I see a YOD – that Finger of God – pointing to the Sun’s position within Scorpio. The vital and active part of our Soul (Sun) that incarnated down here on Earth to feel the range of emotions – the DEPTH of them – that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Universe the way we can here. The Finger of God begins with the Vertex (Vx) in Gemini’s air element – fated/destined conversations, information, data we’ve had/gathered and then share with one another – mixed with the trio of players within Aries: Uranus + Eris + Ceres – all Rx (retrograde) turning their energies inward, personalizing it. Uranus brings Unexpected Change; Eris brings our awareness to an aspect of Self we’ve been reluctant to invite to the table of our Life; and Ceres brings much-needed nurturance/sustenance.

Aries is the cardinal fire of instinctual Self – BE in the MOMENT, BE spontaneous, BE Instinctual – without editing yourself for others. Aries also brings forth the Inner Warrior, Inner Explorer and Inner Pioneer – what aspect of your Inner Character have you been reluctant to assert? To explore deeper? To seek new IN-Roads of your True Self to be seen and heard by others?

dsc05049Combining the Aries players with the Vertex in Gemini – what fated/destined awareness, knowledge, conversations, intertwined with “BECAUSE of your assertive curiosity + courage to try something NEW” shoots renewed energy to BE passionate Within YOURSELF and Your Life – ONLY if you allow those old patterns of conditioning to be let go. What are those patterns? Not noticing those times of fated/destined opportunities to JUMP INTO your Courage, INTO your Assertiveness, INTO your Curiosity, to EXPLORE new worlds, Within and Without, that brings you CLOSER to YOUR PASSION!

Your Ego-Self/brain will do all it can to prevent you from showing up, deciding to take that Leap of Faith, to DO something Different! BE aware of your inner resistance – this is a good sign! Breathe deeply and DIVE anyway! BE the passion. BE the awareness. FEEL the fear and DO IT anyway. During this Full Moon phase, with this Supermoon energy IN YOUR FACE anyway – what have you got to lose? Besides an opportunity?

Venus, as ruler of this Supermoon/Full Moon in Taurus, currently resides within Capricorn – brings forth our Desires for Better/More material gain. “When will it BE my time? When will my ship come in?” Full Moon in Taurus – go buy a lottery ticket! Challenge your Inner Worthiness! Are you worthy/worthwhile to WIN the jackpot yet? Seriously, I am asking you. ARE YOU WORTHY to receive ALL the BEST THINGS the Universe has to offer? Is it TIME yet, for you to ALLOW this in, to be received, taken and do with as you choose?

dsc05011And just as my previous post stated, both Neptune Rx and South Node Rx are at 09 degrees of Pisces during this Full Moon. Chiron is at 20 degrees of Scorpio 48′, also Rx, and sends a love line to the Sun’s position in Scorpio. Water to Water. Pisces’ nebulousness to Scorpio’s iciness. The Sun can melt some of that ice – is your Ego-Self willing to go there to reveal your True Self’s passionate nature? Despite the fear? Will Neptune and the South Node reveal your Karma from past lives, that seems to BE in your face, now? Neptune likes to dissolve illusions/delusions our Ego-Self created to survive past traumas/events. Is it TIME to allow the dissolution of it all yet? Or are the fears of the Ego-Self winning? Let’s return to Aries’ Cup of Courage and drink deeply…to let those old patterns of conditioning dissolve too….

The US Election of last week is still a hot topic – I plan to write yet another post about the US chart and Pluto at 15 degrees of Capricorn’s cardinal earth sign. Cardinal is about New Beginnings. Capricorn is all about material gain. The old guard is dying – what will President-elect Trump learn for himself as he learns to be President and works at being the CEO of the United States? Pluto’s transit through Capricorn since 2008 (until 2024) has been transforming HOW we DO material gain in the world – globally – and at home. Pluto is bringing it HOME. Some aspect of HOW the United States’ beliefs about material gain have already toppled and died (Pluto is all about life/death/rebirth). What MORE can possibly occur these next 8 years? Stay tuned!

dsc05004Enjoy the Moonlight tonight and tomorrow and Tuesday. Bask in your worth, value your commitment to building, hands-on, your daily bread-winning ways. BE in Nature (especially with the lovely weather of late!) and enjoy what you ALREADY HAVE. Envision (Neptune) a more passionately (Scorpio) sustaining future with all the good things this Earth can provide (Taurus). Take Unexpected Action (Uranus in Aries), invite that part of yourself that has been restless and wanting to join the party of your Life (Eris), and nurture ALL of You (Ceres) as best you can this Full Moon. Celebrate, value yourself, and your life.

Your Moon Sign and Its Emotional Body Connection…

 

dsc04723Today’s topic was spurred within me last week to write at some point, as I continued to tie up more pieces of a HUGE Astrology project I’ve been working on since June – delving into the fascinating world of Medical Astrology for a new client, discerning possible issues to what may be getting in the way of her ability to carry a baby to term.

The Endocrine glandular system is key here, with the “Spider’s Web” of interconnection that is very delicate. Any part of this Web of glands that becomes unbalanced can impact the whole Web’s ability to function properly. It’s been quite the research/investigation process for me, being the Virgo Rising personality of processes/physical body health peep that I am + having most of Scorpio in my 3rd House of Communication – delving into the depths of a new topic to the nth degree! I look forward to sharing all the insights and possibilities for further testing to this client soon.

For the rest of you, I want to bring forth a new connection Astrologically, the connection between the Physical Body and your Emotional Body (a subtle body that exists, energetically, beyond the Physical Body). Since 2012, we’ve all undergone HUGE emotional changes Within (consciously or not) due to all the planetary and Nodal transits (North & South Nodes of the Moon) through the Water signs, especially through Scorpio! The last Moon cycle and the current Moon cycle both had the same Water Grand Trine activating our tear ducts and then some, to help us all release any/all deeply buried emotions we’ve been hanging onto that our Emotional Body’s could no longer handle – hence possibly impacting our Physical Bodies.

dsc04808We’ve also been undergoing the change of CONNECTING MORE with our Emotional Body vs. our Mental Body (another subtle body that exists beyond the Emotional Body). Letting GO of our Ego’s need to BE in control of our forward-moving Soul growth (via the Mental Body or our minds – and we’ve been doing so for many many lifetimes) in order for all of us to finally CONNECT MORE with our feelings, intuition, insights and such Within Self and UP via our Creative Spiritual Higher Self, all at the same time.

This last year or so has seen MORE connections via Pisces (with both Neptune, ruler of Pisces, and Chiron therein) helping us to Dissolve old illusions/tapes (Neptune) we’ve hung onto from the Old Age of Pisces, then Healing these new Energetic Body connections (Chiron) we’re just beginning to get used to, let alone understand. Those of us born within any Water sign (via our Sun, Moon, Rising Sign and/or Midheaven sign) especially, have already led the way of how to do all this, this lifetime. What the other Zodiac signs might call “those sensitive types!”. Guess what? We are ALL moving towards this sensitization – whether you are conscious about it or not.

Children born since March 2011 + people born 50 years prior (January 1961 through to the end of March, 1968) were all born with Chiron in Pisces – some also Rx (retrograde) – which brought forth HUGE hypersensitivity to the pain and suffering of others around them! And the need to understand their Emotional Body’s ability to energetically connect on subtle levels with everyone they meet/live with. Hence their need to BE alone more, to ‘recharge’ their own batteries, as well as having food and environmental sensitivities.

Each of us has our Moon connected to a sign of the Zodiac. To me, after doing this Medical Astrology project, I ‘see’ and intuit that the CONNECTION to our respective Physical Bodies from our Emotional Body comes through that body part/system that is associated by the sign our Moon is in! Very cool. I tested this out with my family this weekend and there were a few AHA! moments that helped them to understand WHY the WHERE in their bodies was being impacted in ways unexplainable until now. Cool! Love love love Astrology’s insights.

dsc04681For my readers/followers who already KNOW the Zodiac sign your natal Moon is in (from your birth charts/horoscopes) then read on to view how I now correlate this physical connection with the Emotional Body. For those of you who DO NOT know, and want to learn, what sign your Moon is in, please email me at RainbowsAstro “at” shaw.ca and I will check it out for you. I will require your time, date and place of birth to suss it out for you. I offer this free of charge until the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse September 16, 2016! This is how important I feel it is to KNOW emotionally how you ARE dealing with your emotions/feelings along the way, and at the same time WHERE you may be STORING possible unresolved/unexpressed emotions within your Physical Body realm, creating pain, discomfort, affecting body systems/organs currently and over time.

This is also why I zero into the full 8-phases of each Moon cycle – the Moon represents our emotional natures/needs, the Ego-self’s fear of changing emotionally, and how our daily habits may be keeping us in a rut of routine that no longer supports the health of any of our Body’s – Physical, Emotional, Mental or Spiritual.

Now on to the Zodiac signs via the Medical Astrology’s correlation to our Physical Body. To clarify: if you already know your Moon sign, read the following information I list for that sign AND it’s opposite sign too (what Medical Astrology calls “polarity”). This will be the area or areas where your Physical Body can be impacted, emotionally, if you haven’t, or were unable at the time, to walk through strong emotions/trauma held by your Emotional Body. This may also explain WHY that area of your Physical Body may be impacted by unexplained (or long forgotten, or “I thought I already healed that one!”) trauma/pain/imbalances that are currently getting in the way of better health. Here we go:

dsc04671First off, the MOON rules the following, generally: fertility, bodily fluids, fluid balance, blood-serum, lymph, digestion, stomach, mucous membranes, the cerebellum and the psyche. Here is where, if our Emotional Body is left unattended over time, we can create, within the Physical Body, any of the following: gynaecological disorders, gastric disorders, glandular troubles, ulcers, swellings and depression. Even more critical within a woman’s chart, than a man’s, yet equally true. I also assist women with the timing of their Fertility, monthly, by noting the Moon Phase they were born under. This, along with their ovulation timing, will be key times of best fertility to create a baby every Moon cycle/month.

In this post I am saying illness/disease “perhaps, or may” occur, over LONG periods of TIME if not attended to. In other words, if you deny your feelings, disrespect your Self’s need to cry, express ANY / ALL emotions as they appear along the way of living your life, especially fear, then there is the possibility of manifesting some of the above.

Here in North America with our crazy work schedules and demands upon our time from too many quarters, compared to our European counterparts, the stresses and strains of daily living (and not allowing ME time to compensate for those stresses/strains) means we are impacting our Physical Bodies a lot, and for far too long, before doing something about it. Not to say people living in Europe, or elsewhere in the world, do not undergo similar stresses/strains – we all do. And, I am NOT suggesting anyone WILL manifest any illnesses or diseases – I am suggesting that daily conscious awareness OF and nurturance TO all your feelings/emotions can impact your Physical Body health, over TIME, for the better. To be clear. As you read on, take this information with the lightness of insight it is meant to, for possible connections unmade before now, for you. The impact of emotional turmoil, over long periods of time, creates STRESS that truly does impact the Physical Body.

  • Moon in Aries: (Opposite sign is Libra) here Aries rules the Head, cranium, cerebrum (where motor centres of brain regulate all mental/physical activity), face, eyes and nerves. The Libra polarity portion can bring in a secondary influence that includes the kidneys and liver. So, headaches, rashes on the face, mental deficiencies can come into play if you aren’t attending to your Emotional Body’s needs – it may connect to any of these parts of your body, over time. It may seem to manifest “overnight” and leaves you wondering what is going on, seemingly unrelated to anything else you may have been experiencing. Aries is the cardinal Fire element therefore “inflammation/heat” may come into play within the Physical Body. Or rage/anger/impatience….to be dealt with…especially if you aren’t allowing your instinctual need for independence, space for yourself to BE ME. Or disregarding your Soul’s need to pioneer/be a warrior making inroads Within that you’ve not had the courage to take before now.
  • Moon in Taurus: (Opposite sign is Scorpio) here Taurus rules the throat, neck, ears, adenoids, tonsils, larynx, cerebellum, thyroid gland (determines consumption/elimination of food) and the respiratory organs. The Scorpio polarity portion can bring in a secondary influence within the sexual/excretory organs or glandular system. Over TIME, a goiter may manifest, or pharyngitis, inflamed tonsils/adenoids, laryngitis [if you aren’t speaking your Truth as you need to], choking fits, sore throats, mumps, disorders of the thyroid gland, heart disease, abdominal disorders, or problems with your teeth. Taurus is the fixed Earth sign, therefore stubbornness, unwilling to change habits, and the organs that bring forth our SENSES (seeing, hearing, breathing) can be impacted. Speak up! Listen to your Inner Self. And remember to BREATHE through these moments of emotional upset…talk it out, pray/meditate it out, listen to your Inner Talk too…what do you VALUE about yourself, feel confident/esteemed of, is key here. 
  • Moon in Gemini: (Opposite sign is Sagittarius) here Gemini rules the shoulders, arms, hands, lungs, 1st through 4th dorsal vertebrae, central nervous system, and governs the respiratory function. The Sagittarius polarity’s secondary influence can be the thighs and digestive organs. Over Time, you may see pulmonary diseases, asthma, bronchitis, fractures of the arms or legs, nerve troubles/nervous disorders, tuberculosis, or pleurisy or other lung disorders (especially if you smoke). Gemini is a mutable Air sign, therefore, how are you BREATHING, fully, when you experience emotions/feelings? Do you talk about your feelings with anyone? Or do you turn a blind eye to it, hoping it will go away? The lungs may carry the weight of grief too – how well have you honoured the complicated passage of grieving the passing of loved ones? We may MENTALLY deal with it, yet how did we deal with it EMOTIONALLY? Hence the final resting place of your grief impacting the Lungs. Your ability to Breathe Life into yourself as you move forward without your loved ones.
  • Moon in Cancer: (Opposite sign is Capricorn) here the MOON rules CANCER, hence why this cardinal Water sign is THE most sensitive Zodiac sign. Cancer rules the chest, stomach, lungs (too!) breasts (mammary glands), sternum, diaphragm, brain coverings (meninges), and the lung and heart processes that sustain the body. The Capricorn polarity’s secondary influence can be knees, bones, tibia and kidneys. Over TIME, perhaps resulting in stomach/digestive disorders, dyspepsia, ulcers, gastric complaints, hiccups, heartburn, failure of peristalsis, under-active lymph glands/disorders of, inebriety, depression or meningitis. Cancer is the cardinal Water sign, signifying WATER (vs. ice or vapour of the other 2 water signs). How are you looking after your Physical Body’s water needs? The lungs cannot work without moisture. We clear our glands of toxins by keeping ourselves hydrated. CRYING clears out EMOTIONAL toxins too, as does a good soak in a hot epsom salt/sea salt bath. Or sauna steam. BEing sensitive does not mean there is something wrong with you! It means you have the ability to ‘see’ others’ pain/suffering more easily than most. What you DO with this ability is up to you – being a sponge and soaking up others’ trauma will overload your own Emotional Body, impacting your Physical Body, over TIME. Intuitive hits of insight, and walking through the emotions (rather than medicating them/escaping from them/denying them) and experiencing ALL of what you feel, is the best medicine. AKA Self-care!
  • Moon in Leo: (Opposite sign is Aquarius) here Leo rules the heart, vena cava and coronary arteries, has domain over the Vital energy and circulatory system, the back, and the 5th through 9th dorsal vertebrae. The Aquarius polarity’s secondary influence can be cardia (upper end of the stomach), all blood vessels, disorders of veins, and abdomen. Over TIME, perhaps seeing heart disease, circulatory disorders, anemia, arteriosclerosis, venous diseases, abdominal disorders, impotence, spinal/back trouble, neurosis, or throat trouble. Leo is the fixed Fire sign, so again, possible inflammation/heat within the body. Or anger/rage to be expressed, honourably. Can be resistant to change in habits. Drama King/Queen via projecting the emotions (Drama Triangle of victim/rescuer/bully) vs. consciously being aware and tending to them, felt Within. Interesting way to throw them off and not be responsible for your own feelings.
  • Moon in Virgo: (Opposite sign is Pisces) here Virgo rules the abdominal region, digestive juices, spleen, intestinal tract and duodenum, lower lobes of the liver and its function is digestive/assimilative, and the gallbladder. The Pisces polarity of secondary influence may be the pancreas, the feet or toes. Over TIME, there is the possibility of intestinal disorders, peritonitis, diarrhea, constipation, disorders of the liver and gallbladder, intestinal ulcers, malnutrition, diabetes or hypoglycaemia, colitis, diverticulitis, colic or bowel irregularities. Virgo is the mutable Earth sign of processes, especially daily work, being of service to others, and how well we are in service to the health of the Physical Body. Perfectionism is the key lynchpin here – and causing Illness Within gives us an out from having to be at or go to work that we dislike, having issues with co-workers we don’t wish to confront or deal with, etc.
  • Having a Pisces Sun AND Virgo Rising (my Opposite sign, impacting my physical body) I share this: several times so far this lifetime, due to FEAR, I have walked upon painful feet, had months’ worth of indigestion/acid reflux (sleepless nights as a result), and when I was OVERWORKING via perfectionistic tendencies in my 20’s, ulcers! Do you see how I correlate what I am NOT dealing with emotionally, that then physically manifests within the body? Over time I have overcome ALL of these maladies – successfully, without medication. How? by walking THROUGH, not running away from nor escaping nor denying, what I was feeling. Fear of the Unknown is key for many of us – and can be SUBTLE (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) and insidious at times, until we figure it out! Mentally we may be on board with change – but emotionally, not so much. And vice versa. Seeing a good personal coach, psychologist, or naturopath/alternative health worker or astrologer who believe in psychosomatic disease (how unresolved emotional/mental issues/trauma impact the Physical Body) can all help. And believe me, they and others I attract into my life have helped me immensely to ‘see’ how I sabotage myself (Ego/brain issues of resistance to change) to the nth degree, depending upon the Life Experience I was undergoing at the time. Remember: we are all evolving Beings of Light – we live as long as we do here on Earth to understand our respective processes of conscious awareness, Inner healing, Ego/mind resistance tactics, and how to Love Self better each day, especially by forgiving ourselves and others as we live each day.
  • Moon in Libra: (Opposite sign is Aries) here Libra rules the kidneys, suprarenals, bladder, lumbar region of spine, the centre of gravity within the physical body, therefore the regulative and balancing systems of the body. The Aries polarity of secondary influences can be the uterus, the region around the navel, and the head. Over TIME, possible illnesses may be malfunctions of the kidney’s ability to eliminate poisonous waste (toxins) from the body, inflammation of the kidneys, nephritis, lower back pain, oedema, retention of urine, impure blood, poor skin condition via rashes or eczema, nervous disorders, acidosis or Bright’s Disease. Libra is the cardinal Air sign that wants to BE balanced, always. Unending dilemma for Librans. If this balancing act gets too much for them, then sitting on the fence and doing nothing is their go-to place! No decisions, no action, nothing. You cannot make me! Until they feel there is a way forward, without hurting Self and/or Others. Must be a win-win situation for the good of all. So vertigo/dizziness can come into play if they feel they are surrounded by a vortex of emotion (Within or Without) that they are unable to take the time to deal with. BALANCE is necessary for those with the Moon in Libra. Always, in all ways. Less is more.
  • Moon in Scorpio: (Opposite sign is Taurus) here Scorpio rules the sexual and excretory organs, bladder, urethra, uterus, testicles, rectum, descending colon, sigmoid flexure and prostate gland, and its functions are eliminative/generative. The Taurus polarity of secondary influences could be via the nose, throat, tonsils or bladder. Over TIME manifesting as prostate gland enlargement, many ailments that stem from malfunctions of the colon or bladder, retention of urine, impure blood, poor skin condition,, rheumatism, nasal polyps, nasal catarrh, throat infections, adenoids, furuncle, haemorrhoids, sexual diseases, operations to do with the sexual organs, venereal diseases, diseases of the womb, cervix, or uterus, menstrual problems, constipation, cystitis, hernias or sterility. Scorpio is that fixed Water sign that can seem like ICE – freezing IN TIME any/all emotions along the way that you don’t want to deal with. Or using that Scorpion stinger to keep others away from you, again to put distance between you and your emotional reality. Trust issues abound. Within and Without. Unless you make peace with your Inner Passionate self, that is SO deeply emotional, psychic, intuitive, insightful. You already KNOW that which your Ego/mind want to run away from and why. Being in denial only prolongs the agony, on so many levels. Trust your Inner Self Wisdom and walk through it all anyway! Trust me…it works…and after ALL I have overcome, so can you!
  • Moon in Sagittarius: (Opposite sign is Gemini) here Sagittarius rules the muscular system, thighs, hips, femur, ilium, coccygeal and sacral regions of the spine, lumbar region, sciatic nerves. buttock muscles and great saphenous vein, and the locomotive/supportive systems. The Gemini polarity of secondary influence can mean the shoulders, arms, digestive apparatus, and ability to inhale air. Over TIME could indicate hip disease, rheumatism, sciatica, gout, locomotor disturbances, arteriosclerosis, nervous disorders, impure blood, backache, paralysis, pelvic disruptions, spasms and cramping, or expiration of air. Sagittarius is the mutable Fire sign, signifying possible inflammation/heat within the body, or the anger/rage that comes up when we’re not following our Soul’s Purpose this lifetime. Seeking your Higher Truth is what Sagittarius is all about – how well are you allowing yourself to do so? If not, why not?
  • Moon in Capricorn: (Opposite sign is Cancer) here Capricorn rules the skin and bone systems, knees, gallbladder, and the protective/supportive functions of the body. The Cancer polarity of secondary influences can be the chest, stomach or lungs. Over TIME, could mean rheumatism, rashes, eczema and other skin diseases partially caused by the reflex action from the Cancerian stomach, polyarthritis, broken bones, or tuberculosis of the bones/joints. Saturn rules the cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn, therefore the constriction/restriction here from resistance can indeed create accidents that cause broken bones. How many people do you see walk around with broken bones in their feet/legs? Which side? Left or right? Right side of the Physical Body is equated with Moving Forward in life (masculine energy) while the Left side relates to how well  we ALLOW ourselves to BE vulnerable, to RECEIVE from Others/the Divine – assistance of all sorts (feminine energy). Capricorn itself is the Mountain Goat deciding whether to plateau out and rest for a while vs. eyeing the next upper slopes of pathways to further Self Growth/success in the world. Resistance is Futile (!) when your Soul is beckoning you Onward and Upward! Our Ego/minds can grit their teeth in resistance (!) and do some damage to our inner supportive systems along the way. We can also do damage by MAKING ourselves move forward when truly we need to sit and contemplate better more intuitive (Cancer side) insights for next steps forward.
  • Moon in Aquarius: (Opposite sign is Leo) here Aquarius rules the shins, calves, ankles, tibia, fibula, Achilles tendon, and the circulation system that supplies the body with oxygen via the blood flow. The Leo polarity of secondary influence can bring heart or back or circulation issues to the fore. Over TIME, there could be fractured ankles, dislocations, sprains, cramps of the calf muscle, phlebitis, swollen legs, varicose veins, blood poisoning and diseases, spinal disorders, locomotor disturbances, heart trouble, dropsy, toxaemia, coordination and circulation problems. Aquarius is the fixed Air sign that can hold on tight to anything it fixates upon (via the Ego) to keep the status quo. Even if it brings forth innovation/originality, it can also become STUCK within its own importance. My way or the highway attitude, eh? Aquarius demands we BE our True Authentic Selves. If we are unable to move past our fixedness, then we truncate our Authenticity.  Allowing In the Change to include MORE than meets the eye, from Within, will help! Meet your Future Self and see! See also below the information regarding ALL fixed signs.
  • Moon in Pisces: (Opposite sign is Virgo) here Pisces rules the feet, toes, calcaneous (heel bone), system of lymph glands and the immune system, and the distilling/discriminative functions of the body. The Virgo polarity of secondary influence may be digestive organs, spleen, nerves, lungs or liver. Pisces is the mutable Water sign of vapour/steam/fog/mists, so water retention (too much water/lymph fluid) or not enough (constipation) come into play. Illusion/delusion vs. imagining the BEST and BETTER for ourselves comes into play here. ALL our addictive behaviours/habits are here too – for escapism from the REALITY of current Life Experience. And that Drama Triangle situation of dealing with emotional life (victim-rescuer-bully) to project onto others that which I do not wish to deal with! Again, from the Old Age of Pisces we lived through how many lifetimes over and over. ‘Tis time to assist your Ego/mind into LETTING GO of the Old, to allow in the Imagination of your Creative Higher Self’s unlimited creative ideas and events to unfold in better ways, Within and Without.

dsc04740Those of us with a LOT of planets/points/Nodes within the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) may experience ongoing resistance from our Ego/minds! Might as well find the tools and means to help yourself to heal and resist the Flight or Fight responses of yore…to stay healthy, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. We are moving further into the New Age of Aquarius: innovation and technological advances abound. The opposite sign to Aquarius is LEO – heartfully creative with leadership from the heart vs. the Ego/mind. Create an AND with your polar opposites. A win-win in other words.

Having a Fixed Grand Square in my chart – meaning I have planets + North/South Nodes within ALL the fixed signs of the Zodiac – have assisted me to DO resistance first! Ask “How Many Ways Are There to DO Resistance, Laurie Rae?” Let me count the ways….The fixed signs can also reflect deep trauma in the physical body, psyche, and emotional body. From this lifetime or past lives. All fascinating to uncover/discover, over Time, and Astrology can help.

dsc04734I invite you to read ALL the Moon signs and their polarities – I have shared more information within certain segments due to personal experience. I am living proof that yes, Virginia, we can self-heal to a certain extent. Especially when we connect emotionally and mentally Within our Self to ‘see’ what we are feeling and why. Ask, look, listen, forgive Self and Others, then move on. Heal and Be Healed. Know that You are a creative evolving Soul of unrealized/unlimited potential, every single moment. Take time to BE With Your Self, Within Your Self, and With Your Higher Self. She/He will always be there to help you towards your next baby step forward. Always, in all ways. Connect with ALL your Bodies! Each one is as important as the rest – similar to that Spider’s Web of the Endocrine glandular system. Listen to yourself, on all levels.

Blessed BE!

HeartFULL Connection INto the New Age of Aquarius Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse!

At 3:26a MDT, Thursday, August 18, 2016 we begin what will be the ‘Season of Eclipses’ – three between tomorrow and September 16th!

Mt Lorette Ponds2After this Summer that I call the “Storm of Storms!” with all the water raining down around us, multiple times a day, with or without the thunderstorms, almost every day (!!) we reach this Lunar Eclipse (meaning Eclipse of the Moon) during the Full Moon (it’s ALL about EMOTIONS aka water) at 25 degrees Aquarius 51′ – and in turn, the Sun sits opposite at 25 degrees Leo 51′.

We have a Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse + Grand Trine in Water signs – that’s a whole lot of water aka emotional baggage to contend with! If any of you have been shedding your fair share of tears already this week – you are in good company! Shed away – the more the better – as we ALL ready our Heart Chakras and Emotional Bodies to embrace and connect more truly, heartfully, with this New Age of Aquarius.

In order to open the heart fully to EMBRACE the New Age, we must, at the same time, RELEASE THE OLD, to make room for this New Age. What are we releasing exactly? Look back to August 2nd’s New Moon in LEO – the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse REFLECTS the Light of that Sun/Moon combo of 16 days ago – Illuminating ALL of what we had hid away in our respective hearts that was more Dark than Light. What was so Dark Within your heart, that now is being shed (via tears, forgiveness etc.) to HEAL your heart, be Let Go, to make room for the New?

In order to operate fully, balanced, within the New Age of Aquarius, we MUST connect to, and engage with, the opposite sign, LEO, which rules the heart, spine and back within the physical body. Without Heart, how can we love Self and Others? Without a Spine, how can we Stand UP for what we FEEL is right and true? Without a Back-bone, how can we BRAVELY move forward?

It may seem as if you’ve been operating WITHOUT a heart, up until now. As if it was displaced somehow, outside of Self and your physical body. This Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon gives all of us the opportunity to bring it BACK into the physical body, into the Heart Chakra, to Love Self, more fully. Then be able to Love our Fellow Man/Woman/Child.

Mt Lorette Ponds3

Mt Lorette Ponds 2016

Go ahead and cry, do your watershed moment(s) – as much as your Soul requires, squeeze out every last drop of regret, shame, anger, loss, resentments, worthiness issues – you name it and do it. The more we Let Go, emotionally, now, the Better we’ll be connected Heartfully TO Self, and then, With Others. Heartbeat to Heartbeat yes, yet essentially it is more of an ESSENCE of Love – that current that has always been there, yet somehow we’ve been unable to access it, let alone BE it.

Yes, Aquarius can be known to BE Unemotionally Involved/Attached etc – but in this Eclipse the emotional/feeling connection is there, believe me. The Moon in Aquarius brings forth the awareness of what may be lacking…and what we are all searching for, outside of Self. Self needs the Love, Nourishment, and Acknowledgement, from Within. From YOU, to YOU. Then Self can be there with Others, equally well. We must fill our own Inner Well of feeling/emotion that is Heart and Love, first, before we give any of it to Others. ‘Tis similar to running your car on empty – how far down the road will you be able to travel on fumes? And what further damage will occur along the way in doing so? Fill YOURSELF UP!

This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse also brings in a YOD, Finger of God, formation pointing TO Mars + Vertex (something this way Destined/Fated comes!) + Saturn in the early degrees of Sagittarius (Seeking Our Higher Truth/Life Purpose). Mars wants to take Assertive Action of some kind, while Saturn, the Authority Figure BEing responsible (or not), needs some long-term goals to move towards. Or from. Are/were there any authority figure(s) in your life that need Forgiveness, Heartfully, for You to move on from?

Every YOD brings in opportunity to HEAL Old Patterns of Conditioning in some regard. The two Feminine Asteroids who are assisting us to do so are:

  • Vesta, in Cancer – the most sensitive water sign, Cancer represents the Mother, Family, Nurturance and can be Possessive, not wanting to LET GO in some regard. Vesta, the brightest of the Asteroids, brings forth concentrated focus, and she rules the Home/Hearth Fire. She represents the flame that BURNS AWAY the non-essentials, leaving only that which is pure (according to Jim Maynard’s Celestial Guide 2016). We can use her energy to focus on this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse task to heal an old pattern re: HOW we do nurturance within the Family. As we do so, we may send Love and Forgiveness UP to the Finger of this YOD, to Saturn – representing a parent, a boss, or other authority figure in your life – that you haven’t been HEARTFULLY able to do before now. And with Mars Up There too – extra energy to TAKE ACTION on this wee gift of Self Growth.
  • Ceres in Taurus – the mutable, sensuous (Full of our Senses/Senses ARE Full) earth sign, Taurus can be as Stubborn as a Bull (!!) with resistance to CHANGE – OR will take the Bull by the Horns (!!) to get this job done! Your choice, as always. Ceres, the largest of the Asteroids, known for ruling agriculture, the harvest and abundance of the land, indicates HOW we received NURTURANCE as a child/our capacity to NURTURE now as adults…just saying…has anything changed for you since you were a child?
  • Can you ‘see’ how both Vesta and Ceres, as they LET GO of old resentments/grudges against a parent or whomever that didn’t NURTURE us the way we expected (they did the best they could with the Heart that they had), we in turn heal our Hearts, allow FORGIVENESS to heal ME and YOU/THEM along the way, AND create more LOVE in the world (and Beyond)?! AND, create more ROOM for nurturance of Self, then Others – and on and on it goes…and grows!
  • AND, Ceres and Vesta learn to work together too. Vesta can get so caught up in the DOING of a task, she can forget to come up for air and BE with her loved ones. Ceres assists with the Caretaking/CareGIVING portion of the program. SO, when Ceres heals her end of the Old Pattern of Conditioning with the Parent/Authority figure in question in your life, AND Vesta heals her issues, then TOGETHER they create a NEW way, Within YOU, to nurture, YOU! A Win-Win, eh?
Violets3

Violets, Cedar Villa Extendicare 2016

Interestingly, the Water Grand Trine in this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, connects VESTA in Cancer with the South Node/Neptune (both Rx – retrograde – therefore PERSONALIZING IT ALL, making you a wee bit sensitive about it) in Pisces, with JUNO in Scorpio. More watershed opportunity to Let Go of the Past (via the Dragon’s Tail aka South Node swishing away the OLD from this Lifetime or Past Lives that still seem to playing themselves out in your current life) AND Dissolving Idealized relationships (Neptune) or whatever YOUR particular Illusion/Delusion has been that you’ve been carrying around like an old doll or blankie as a pseudo-nurturance crutch, creating all sorts of Drama for the Ego-Self…as in a barrier to ALLOW further nurturance/Love into your life, because “I was hurt before so I’m NOT going to allow it to happen again!” or thoughts along that line…

Mars also represents the men in our lives. Could be a Father-figure, an actual partner you’ve had, someone who had a major impact in your life. The Vertex (Vx) brings something Fated/Destined your way. All in the timing folks! Divinely or otherwise…I like to take advantage of ALL Astrological opportunities that come my way, to help ME Heal ME, as much as possible. I invite each of you to do the same. And as always, it is your choice to do so.

Let me Think on That

Let Me Think on That…

Did I mention that what we DO mindfully, with the Heartfelt Feelings/Intuition of any Lunar Eclipse has an impact on our lives for the next 3.5 years down the road? Again, why I love Astrology – applies a wee nudge in the right direction (Sun/Soul) to honour the Emotional Body (Moon), follow your INtuition, and FEEL your way forward – however that looks and feels for YOU. Always, in All Ways.

Blessed BE!

THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO: My Dad, Ernie Rezanoff. His birthday was August 21st, and the day we held his ‘Celebration of Life’ 2 years ago. I’ve used this watershed timing to help HEAL my relationship with my ‘Father Figure’ this week. Huge shifts for me. Thanks Dad, for this gift, for your Love, and I miss you! xoxoxoxo

584-day Synodic Journey of Venus from Leo: Leadership of the Feminine Heart

DSC04609On July 18, 2015, a new leg of the 8-year long Synodic Journey of Venus began a 584-day Journey, began from the fixed fire sign of Leo. Each 584-day period x 5 periods = 8 years, creating a pentagram pattern in the sky. I’ve been wanting to write this post for many months, but the Time wasn’t right to do so, until today. August  3, 2016.

According to Shamanic Astrology, Venus in our birth chart represents our pre-existing desires and needs (via money, assets and resources) and the Value we place upon these outward things that are significant to us (the Taurus face of Venus) and transforms them, over time, to how we relate to them internally, energetically. Hence the sometimes “emotional attachment” we can have with THINGS!!

She also ushers in our ‘family’ of relationships (be they close friends, colleagues, co-workers, bosses, significant intimate partnerships, clients, business partnerships – the Libra face of Venus). Her transits (or journey She undergoes in the NOW) set us up for significant Karmic recall/re-examination. We attract those people/situations into our lives to live out past/current emotional/physical/mental/spiritual blockages, NOW, that we’ve either created this lifetime and/or brought forward from past lifetimes, to hopefully heal and finally embrace with love, within this lifetime.

DSC04629

Nose Hill Park July 2016

Venus, as the Goddess of Love, Peace, Harmony and her many ‘faces’- as maiden, mother and crone, has worked tirelessly to this end, together with the Asteroid Goddesses of:

  • Ceres (since 1801), Goddess of Agriculture, the Harvest, and Abundance of the Land – Mothering.
  • Pallas Athena (since 1802), Goddess of Wisdom, Patron of the Arts – the Feminine Wisdom principle.
  • Juno (since 1804), Queen of the Gods, Patroness of Marriage and Fertility, our need for committed, fulfilling relationships (the Sacred Marriage).
  • Vesta (since 1807), Goddess of Hearth/Home Fire and our devotion to duty, plus our respective sexuality.
  • Hygeia (since 1849), Goddess of Hygiene, Health, and our health practices.
  • And the newly discovered feminine planets of Sedna (since 2003), Goddess of Infinite Supply – who feeds the tribe – vs. Victim/Lack Consciousness, and
  • Eris (since 2005), Sister to Mars, Goddess of Strife/Discord – represents the part of Self you’ve neglected to INVITE to the party of YOUR LIFE!

The Divine Feminine Principles and energetic power returned to this Earth during the June 2012 transit of Venus moving across the Sun, for the world, and Universe, to see and experience. All women/girls of every walk of life and age have been undergoing a huge internal shift deep Within, be they conscious of it or not. We are learning to stand in our power as the Divine Feminine energy we truly are, regaining and mastering equality within this world that is Earth. After who knows how long, the Divine Feminine Energy Principle stands up to MEET, in EQUALITY, with the Divine Masculine Energy, to finally stand side-by-side.

DSC04646

Thistle, Nose Hill Park July 2016

Men have also been undergoing huge shifts Within, of THEIR Divine Feminine Power energy too! In order to do so, THEIR Divine Masculine Power energy has had to take a step back to ALLOW the EQUAL portion of their Inner Feminine to step in and take up more room within each of them. Not an easy or seamless process for them (letting go of power and control especially)! And yes, it is a process that is still ongoing…for all of us…

What exactly IS the Divine Feminine Power energy? The subtle realms of intuitive knowing, insights, ‘seeing’ symbolically, connection Within to your daily feelings, emotions, following your intuition, allowing the compassion, empathy, forgiveness and love to BE received, felt then shared. Our connection to the Divine, how we RECEIVE those messages. The Divine Masculine Power then Takes Action from those intuitive hits.

A pentagram star is created by Venus’ synodic journey (in the sky) from the date of our respective births, and is completed every 8th year. The significant birthdays for all of us are: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72,80, 88, 96 and 104, and we experience a Synodic Venus Return that year. Each of us are born during a particular phase of the Venus Cycle, and when Venus returns to her original position, with the Sun, near those birthday ages noted above, we in turn return to that phase in Her journey, within our life.

According to Cayenne K Castell, Shamanic Astrologer, “we move to an even higher octave of the feminine expression we came to earth to experience during each Venus Return timing. For women, it is all about our emerging feminine identity for this life, what aspect of the Goddess you have come to explore, express and help evolve. For men, this is their connection to the sacred feminine and what they intend to integrate as their Inner Other or Inner Beloved. Each 8-year Synodic Venus Return Cycle is a powerful initiation time intended to deepen our experience as well as be a part of the evolution of these Divine Feminine archetypal energies.”

“The 584-day Synodic cycle begins and ends from Heliacal Rise (meaning the planet Venus’ rise before the Sun does, when She is Rx – retrograde) to Heliacal Rise, up in the physical sky.

DSC04616

Sky Views from Nose Hill Park

On July 24, 2015 Venus Stationed Retrograde (Rx – began to move supposedly backward/energetically Inward) at 00 degrees of Virgo 45′ and disappeared from the evening sky on August 9, 2015 at 27 degrees of Leo. Interestingly, note that Jupiter also entered Virgo August 12th, 2015, seemingly guiding Venus on her Journey! Expansive and amplifying energy, to assist Her (and us!) past limited boundaries, taking leaps of Faith towards NEW heights. A rare event!

Venus spends 40 days Rx, moving from Evening Star (seeing Her in the evening sky) to Morning Star (seeing Her in the early morning sky). During Her Rx phase, Venus conjuncts with the Sun, and a few days later RISES as a Morning Star, and each step of the way as Morning Star She connects (conjuncts) with 7-8 Moon phases! So over 7-8 Moon cycles / months, Venus and the Moon connect. More on this later…

The Heliacal Rise of Venus August 21, 2015 occurred at 19 degrees of Leo and Stationed Direct September 5, 2015 at 15 degrees of Leo.” All of this sounds a wee bit technical, yet I ask you to think back in your life to these dates I mention: where were you, Within, and within your Life? How did you feel? What did you like/dislike about your life back then?

Question: have you heard of the story of the Descent of Inanna (Venus’ Summerian name) or Ishtar (Venus’ Babylonian name)? This is exactly what Venus’ 584-day Synodic Journey is all about! And has been recorded and celebrated for many 1,000s of years! Read on…

“Morning Star Venus (as Inanna/Ishtar) begins her descent into the Underworld. She meets with the waning Moon 7 times (sometimes 8) going through the 7 Gates into the Underworld. At each Gate she gives up a Vestment associated with the 7 Chakras, releasing any distortions linked with these Chakra energies:

  • Gate 1 – Crown Chakra – The Gate of Authority (removing Her crown) – occurred September 10, 2015 at 15 degrees of Leo, within the Balsamic Moon phase – where we experience a ‘death’ of some aspect of our Ego-Self, and seeds a re-birth soon to come during the next New Moon phase).
  • Gate 2 – Brow or 3rd Eye Chakra – The Gate of Perception (removing Her royal staff) – occurred October 8, 2015 at 00 degrees Virgo, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 3 – Throat Chakra – The Gate of Communication (removing Her necklace) – occurred November 7, 2015 at 29 degrees Virgo, also during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 4 – Heart Chakra – The Gate of Compassion (removing Her breast plate) – occurred December 7, 2015 at 03 degrees Scorpio, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 5 – Solar Plexus Chakra – The Gate of Personal Power (removing Her ring of power) – occurred January 6, 2016 at 10 degrees of Sagittarius, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 6 – Sacral or Belly Chakra – The Gate of Creativity (removing Her ankle bracelets) –  occurred February 5, 2016 at 17 degrees of Capricorn, during the Balsamic Moon phase.

  • Gate 8 – The Death by Intent Gate, occurred April 6, 2016 at 01 degrees of Aries, during the Balsamic Moon phase. In other words, we began a symbolic ‘death’ of some sort within each of our respective lives!

Venus joins the Sun for 60 – 90 days – the Underworld phase. Here Inanna/Ishtar dies, then is reborn 60 – 90 days later, after She meets with the Sun, or Source of Life. Dying to Her old self, and preparing to be reborn anew.

Venus disappeared from the morning sky April 30, 2016 at 01 degrees of Taurus, and met the Sun on June 6, 2016 at 16 degrees of Gemini.

Labyrinth Walk with Chris, Nose Hill Park, July 2016

Venus rose as the Evening Star on July 13, 2016 at 02 degrees of Leo. From April 30 to July 13, we experienced our respective walks through the Underworld for 74 days! What aspect of Self died within you then?

As Evening Star, Venus meets with the waxing Moon 7-8 times, returning through the 7 Gates in the reverse order, now Transformed and Empowered from Her initiation as She regains her Vestments:

  • Gate 1 – Root Chakra – The Gate of Manifestation (regaining Her royal robe) – occurred TODAY, August 3, 2016 at 28 degrees of Leo, during the New Moon phase – where we initiate change, new beginnings, a rebirth of some sort!
  • Gate 2 – Sacral Chakra – The Gate of Creativity (regaining Her ankle bracelets) – will occur September 3, 2016 at 05 degrees Virgo, during the New Moon phase, 2 days AFTER the Solar Eclipse / New Moon at 09 degrees of Virgo 23′!
  • Gate 3 – Solar Plexus Chakra – The Gate of Personal Power (regaining Her ring of power) – will occur October 3, 2016 at 13 degrees of Scorpio, during the New Moon phase, 20 days after the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 24 degrees of Pisces 13′!
  • Gate 4 – Heart Chakra – The Gate of Compassion (regaining Her breast plate) – will occur November 2, 2016 at 19 degrees of Sagittarius, during the New Moon phase.
  • Gate 5 – Throat Chakra – The Gate of Communication (regaining Her necklace) – will occur December 3, 2016 at 25 degrees of Capricorn, during the New Moon phase, just prior to the Crescent Moon phase (challenge/struggle between the New vs. the Old Ego-Self ways).
  • Gate 6 – Brow or 3rd Eye Chakra – The Gate of Perception (regaining Her royal staff) – will occur January 2, 2017 at 29 degrees of Aquarius, during the Crescent Moon phase.
  • Gate 7 – Crown Chakra – The Gate of Authority (regaining Her crown) – will occur January 31, 2017 at 28 degrees of Pisces, during the Crescent Moon phase, and 11 days prior to the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 22 degrees Leo 34′!
  • Gate 8 – The Ascension Gate – Life by Intent – will occur February 28, 2017 at 13 degrees of Aries, during the New Moon phase, and 2 days after the Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 08 degrees of Pisces 09′!

Venus begins Her Rx phase in the evening sky March 3, 2017 at 13 degrees of Aries, and is Rx for 40 days, disappearing from the evening sky March 18, 2017 at 09 degrees of Aries. Then Venus travels with the Sun for 7-8 days, meeting with the Sun, exactly conjunct on March 25, 2017 at 05 degrees of Aries.

Venus emerges in the morning sky on March 31, 2017 at 01 degrees of Aries, as a whole NEW archetype of the Feminine – a.k.a the Heliacal Rise of Venus, and the start of a new 584-day cycle!

New Larch Trees!

For YOU To Do Next: think back on your life since July 2015. What changes have YOU undergone, deep within? Perceive what YOU let go of, via each Gate / Moon phase / Chakra from September 10, 2015 until the ‘death by intent’ April 6, 2016. Here are some keywords about each Chakra’s energetic influence (according to the Chopra Centre), Within YOU:

  • Root Chakra: influences physical identity, stability and sense of safety; when blocked, you may experience lack of physical energy, a sense of being ungrounded.
  • Sacral Chakra: influences emotional identity, creativity and desire; when blocked, you may experience creative blocks, intimacy issues, inability to flow with change.
  •  Solar Plexus Chakra: influences ego identity, personal power, ambition; when blocked, you may experience low self-esteem, lack of willpower, fear of rejection.
  • Heart Chakra: influences social identity, love, relationships; when blocked, you may experience difficulty with relationships, lack of compassion, hopelessness.
  • Throat Chakra: influences self-expression, communication, integrity; when blocked, you may experience difficulty communicating your thoughts and speaking your truth.
  • Third Eye Chakra: influences self-reflection, intuition, clarity of sight; when blocked, you may experience difficulty making decisions, poor intuition, lack of inspiration.
  • Crown Chakra: influences self-knowledge, spirituality, connection to the Divine; when blocked, you may experience difficulty meditating, lack of spiritual connections, aimlessness.

You will ‘see’ how well each of your Chakras were already working prior to your descent to the Underworld between September 10, 2015 and April 6, 2016. As you look back in time, what did YOU Let Go Of along the way, during each of those Gates/Moon phases? Be it consciously or unconsciously?

Now ‘see’, as of TODAY: what you are REGAINING, via your Root Chakra/1st Gate of Manifestation, that you DID NOT HAVE or were BLOCKED from, back on September 10, 2015! Do you ‘see’ your Inner Self’s changes along the way? Do you ‘see’ your Inner Growth? Yay! THIS is what Venus’ Synodic Journey brings to the table within each of us.

Nose Hill Vistas, July 2016

As you progress through the rest of the Gates between today and March 31, 2017, regaining more of what you TRULY wish for YOU, keep the following Leo Archetype symbolism (according to Shamanic Astrology) of Venus’ Synodic Journey since July 2015 in mind:

  • “Venus in Leo is not satisfied with simply surviving! Her impetus is directed to THRIVE, to gain MORE joy, pleasure, reward, love and acknowledgement!
  • Increasing our sense of Desire and Deserving of ALL good things!
  • Venus in Leo stokes the fire Within with added confidence, enthusiasm, optimism, and creative instinct.
  • Venus in Leo creates a time to renew our love affair with Self and with LIFE! This transit will prompt you to an Inner Search and Retrieve of the ‘good stuff’ that you may have forgotten or let go of before this cycle!
  • She will set the wheels in motion to awaken your sense of “I DESERVE!”, in turn launching the CREATE-IT Process! [I love how the Oprah/Deepak Chopra 21-day Meditation challenge this past month was ALL ABOUT Creativity, exactly setting us up for TODAY!]
  • When your sense of deserving is well-centred, a more fruitful stage is set for the calling forth of reward!”

We will learn to  embody the STRENGTH of both Mars and Saturn Rx within Sagittarius this  Moon cycle too – both part of our Inner support system. Leo rules the heart AND the back/spine – do you HAVE the backbone (aka strength) to ASK for (verbally, OUT LOUD) and CREATE what you heartfully WANT in your life? We require this, to CHOOSE from STRENGTH, rather from FEAR…from our own Higher Creative Self in other words.

Prairie Wildflower, July 2016

This Moon cycle began with the Yod, Finger of God pointing to the Sun/Moon position in Leo. Today I want to mention the Mutable Grand Square within the upcoming Lion’s Gate Portal, August 8th – the day of Divine heartfelt downloads of messages for each of us, creating flowing solidness (backbone/spine) for each of us to stand up from Within, from the following planetary players:

  • Midheaven in Gemini: what information/data are you RECEIVING during this Lion’s Gate Portal timing? How does it serve you?
  • South Node and Neptune (Rx) in Pisces: retrieving and keeping the ‘gems’ of our Spiritual / Divine Self, AND archiving the old Drama Triangle/martyrdom roles we played so well…then IMAGINE to New Life you wish for yourself!
  • Mars and Saturn (Rx) in Sagittarius: what ACTION will you take, BE responsible for, OUT in the wider world? How will you seek your Higher Truth/Purpose – your role THIS lifetime? Take some time August 8th to look at the BIG PICTURE of your life to this point – where have you been? How have you travelled to this time and place since birth? What MORE do you desire to DO/BE/THINK/DESIRE? Can you ‘see’ what’s beckoning you on to Next Steps forward?
  • Mercury and North Node in Virgo: How, and what, are you deciding to BE of service with or for? How does this look different to where you were back in September? Any of the aforementioned – how is it BETTER, AUTHENTIC, TRUER for you now?

As I mentioned in the previous post about the New Moon in Leo, I feel Hilary Clinton’s very public rise to where she is now, running for the position as the next President of the United States, brings to mind a few things: does she have the heart for it? Does she have the backbone to do the job? And will she LEAD with HEART? Another key phrase that is Leo. What do the American people need more of? Hope for?

It will be interesting to see how Hilary herself undergoes this Gate, and the next 3 Gates, regaining her royal robe, ankle bracelet, ring of power and breast plate, respectively, between now and the US Election November 8th (which occurs during the 1st QTR Moon phase in Cancer – all about FAMILY, and a Crisis of Action to be taken to break the bindings of the Past in order to create CHANGE!). She and Queen Elizabeth are two different female leaders. Who comes from the heart, leading the way by standing true to her Inner Divine Feminine Power? And what changes will occur to both women/leaders between now and then?

What changes are YOU intending in your own life? I will remind each of us, during the coming Moon cycles and Eclipse timings, what we are REGAINING – women AND men! BE the CHANGE you want to SEE! Stay tuned…

Blessed BE!
