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.

NAMASTE

The Pause Button…

Scorpion

Scorpion of Scorpio

It’s been a month since I last wrote a post. We all needed to pause, reflect and re-balance ourselves and our lives during the previous New Moon in Libra September 30 – October 29th. How did you do? What decisions did you make? Conversations/connections made? Are you satisfied with where you are, now? Did you gain equilibrium in some regard?

Today’s New Moon occurred at 11:39 a.m. MDT with both the Moon and Sun connecting at 07 degrees Scorpio 44′ AND Mercury holding hands at 09 degrees Scorpio 41. Cool! Our minds will be connecting in a deep-seated way this Moon cycle too! More awareness re: your fears and resistance to change. Emotionally – Scorpio is the Ice version of Astrological water signs, and the most private sign in the Zodiac. Hhhhmmm….Mercury will change that! Talk talk talk…including Self-Talk!

Pluto rules Scorpio, therefore rules this Moon cycle. Expect deep transformative changes, emotionally, perhaps right down to those deep-seated roots you’ve been hanging onto, unconsciously/subconsciously so. Currently, Pluto and Mars have been dancing together within the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn since October 15th, bringing forth Action (Mars) and transformation of the need to CONTROL things (Pluto) and their outcomes, as it relates to material gain (Capricorn), reputation, long-term goal-setting. If you needed to sip from the Cup of Courage to Take Action whilst also walking through feeling those deep-seated fears (!!) yay you! How does life look today, after having done so?

Scorpio rules the following areas of our respective lives (check out where in your charts the Sun is shining a Light into the Inner Darkness + the Moon brings up emotional issues to be healed + Mercury culling out thoughts/study/conversations to be had about ALL of this):

  • Fears – anything or everything – be consciously aware of these fears as this Moon cycle progresses. The days are shorter, the nights longer, darkness embraces us, preparing everyone for the Winter’s hibernation phase. All the flower beds and growing things are either dead or dying. Nature is preparing to sleep, slumbering within deep dreams of what GREW well this past year, what DIED, and what needs MORE NURTURANCE in the weeks and months to come. How aware are you of those deep-seated fears of yours? And, do you want to DO something about them?
  • Passions – emotional transformation brings forth renewed passion for living your life. Wherever Scorpio resides in your chart is where you’ve required renewal of passion. I have most of Scorpio in my 3rd House of Communication, Learning, Self-Talk, Siblings, Short-distance Travel and the Local Peeps I interact with on a daily basis. Hitting the Pause Button for the previous Moon cycle, for me, regained my passion for writing, and Astrology. What’s yours? Do you know what it is? If not, perhaps it will reveal itself deep within you this Moon cycle.
  • Investigation/Research abilities – yes Scorpio likes to dive deeply into any subject – to the nth degree! I can attest to this! Ask my clients and students! Here we decide where in our lives we need MORE – information, conversation, inner investigation – MORE and DEEP and perhaps within wells of emotion we were afraid to tunnel down into until this Moon cycle! Yes it is dark down there, yes there is fear to go where you haven’t gone before. FEEL those feelings – ask them what messages they bring for your conscious awareness. Walk through them. Investigate further by ASKING them. Truly – it works!
  • Intuition/psychic insights – we all have these abilities. Today’s client told me, “I don’t have those abilities.” I had to disagree – her natal Jupiter in Scorpio tells me otherwise. When we fear to BE sensitive (aka embrace our true and deepest feelings) with ourselves, we can shut down, emotionally and intuitively. Scorpio is the Ice Queen – frozen waterfalls and/or oceans of emotions, frozen In Time (as in earlier this lifetime and/or past lives!) that over Time, can manifest as PAIN or some other resistance within the physical body! Believe it! Hence why I suggest everyone TALK to your Feelings – TALK to your Pain! Mercury is here to help all of us with this ability this Moon cycle. Then LISTEN for the insights/symbols/signs that come your way for further guidance, next steps to take, etc. Yes. You. CAN.
  • Sexuality – yes more taboo subjects, especially here in North America, and how’s that working for you so far? Take another sip of Courage to have that conversation with your significant other, or your Doctor, or with yourself (!) about these natural human needs. If it’s been a long while since you last embraced your sexuality, this Moon cycle will bring forth the feelings that you may have ignored, for whatever reason. As humans, no matter how we resist it, change is all around us. Our sexual needs can change too – over time. Remember that Ice Queen analogy? How many of you, men and women, have put your sexual needs ‘on ice’?! Is it time for a thaw? Think about it, feel the deep-seated, natural passionate feelings/needs – then decide on what ‘needs to change’ and go about asking for it! Do it!
  • Power and Control Issues – yes, our societies, worldwide, seem to collectively struggle with this more and more. The heat of it has been turned way up. The upcoming US Election has been showing all of us where these issues lie – talk about LOUD and in our face! As Within, So Without. How do you deal with crisis? Do you run away, hide, or deal with it face on? Pluto, ruler of Scorpio, helps us transform our need to CONTROL our outer world, to the nth degree, tearing down those emotional walls or dams we’ve built up this lifetime (or brought with us, unresolved, from past lives, to deal with now). The thicker those walls or deeper those dams, the MORE we need to pay attention, turn on our Inner Listener, and FEEL what needs to be felt. Your feelings are there to get your attention! They are there for a reason! Listen. Feel. Then decide, “What do I wish to DO about them?” Ignoring them only makes it all the more LOUDER…over Time. How much LOUDER does it have to BE? Use this Moon cycle’s energies and planetary players to HELP you move through YOUR process! Find out what YOUR process is. All of this will lead to EMPOWERMENT – creating a win-win for you, with you and others.
  • Financial Partnerships – the debt you may owe, the money you hold with bankers, the income you receive from your employer (or yourself if self-employed), taxes owed, money shared with business partners/marriage partners. How are you dealing with all of this? Hiding? Showing up? Combination of the two? Do you open all the envelopes/emails that bring your statements? If not, what are you afraid of and not dealing with? What emotions come up for you re: MONEY? Is it highly charged with fear? Why? Use the Scorpion investigative skill to drill down to the roots of this subject. FEEL your way down into that pool of Money Fears. What does it look like? Feel like? How do you want to transform this feeling? “What will it take for me to feel JOY about Money?” Say this over and over – what will it take? Honestly. Christie Marie Sheldon’s “Love and Above” series re: our blocks to Abundance is incredible. It works – truly – therefore NOT for the faint of heart! Check out her YouTube videos, then check Within yourself, “Is this course for me?” 
  • PHYSICALLY – Scorpio rules all those hidden parts of the body – sexual organs, elimination organs, PMS and menstruation, and sexual diseases. If you need to see your Doctor for that yearly exam you’ve been putting off – do it! Or chat with your  new sexual partner about their sexual history – all part of that investigative skill that is Scorpio. Move beyond the frozen waterfall of Fear. BE transformed and Empowered by talking about it all, understanding comes forth, and whew! What a relief! Honestly. Here, again, we can hold onto past emotional hurts/trauma that can impact us physically. Do your due diligence – love yourself, respect your body, and TALK about it!

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

November 2nd, during the New Moon phase of initiating the NEW this Moon cycle, Venus connects with the Moon at 19 degrees of Sagittarius. Here She regains her breastplate and COMPASSION, via the Heart Chakra. All within 8 degrees of the Galactic Centre too! So some Cosmic Compassion this way comes – opening our Hearts to MORE LOVE, compassion and forgiveness – to/for Self and Others. Think back to December 7, 2015 when you REMOVED this breastplate/compassion via Venus’ journey of descent into the Underworld. What were you undergoing at that time, emotionally? Now see yourself, and your life, today. What needed to DIE within you back then, to be healed, that you are now fully embracing With Love? Cool, eh? Do you ‘see’ your Inner progress, hearfully? THIS is how Astrology supports Inner Evolution! As we evolve Within, our world evolves Without.

Remember this: each New Moon cycle brings forth a NEW cycle of emotional evolution, Within. The theme changes due to the sign both the Moon and Sun reside together in. By the Full Moon phase we are Illuminated with Inner understanding as to what was struggling, from Within, OUT of our Inner Darkness, to be brought forth INTO the Light of Love, Understanding, Compassion and Forgiveness. We all do this, consciously or otherwise, every Moon cycle. How I Love Astrology!

If you are ready, willing and want to explore your birth chart, to ‘see’ your Inner You more closely, give me a call! In Calgary, Alberta Canada: 1-587-353-8085 or via email: RainbowsAstro ‘at’ shaw.ca – I look forward to your call and your willingness to deeply explore that which you’ve been afraid to embrace, and evolve from, before now.

BLESSED BE!

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.

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 7 – Root Chakra – The Gate of Manifestation (removing Her royal robe) – occurred March 7, 2016 at 24 degrees of Aquarius, 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.

Nose Hill Labyrinth 2016

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.

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!

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…

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!
