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!

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!

So Many Changes….Where to Begin?

dsc04951I’ll begin with today and move backward from here! LOL!

We entered the Last QTR Moon cycle as of 3:57a MDT this morning – with the Moon at 00 degrees of Cancer 48′! Hence yet another nod in the direction of NEW Cycles! This cardinal water sign beckons us all to be sensitive to our respective needs AND to be aware of how tetchy the Ego-self can/will be over the next several days. The Last QTR Moon phase brings forth some sort of Crisis in Re-Orientation – due to what we now know about our Self since September 1st’s New Moon/Solar Eclipse (and that Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse + Mercury Rx in Virgo plus plus plus…) that we didn’t know BEFORE then.

Between today and the Balsamic Moon phase September 26th, what ACTION, despite Ego-self denials, resistances, stubbornness et al, are you being called upon to take? And if you’ve been feeling overly emotional of late…you are not alone! Crying is a chemical reaction to letting go energetically of something. There are times we KNOW what we’re releasing and times when we don’t. All good! BE aware of your feelings, intuition, and emotional needs! End of. Intuition will show you the way forward of what Action to take next. Cancer is all about self-nurturance – how are you doing this for YOU? I repeat – a NEW cycle – of letting go of Ego’s desire to IGNORE and perhaps hug yourself daily, look yourself in the mirror, in your eyes and tell yourself, “I LOVE YOU!” Now wouldn’t that feel warm and fuzzy all over? For a change, Self-Love, Self-Acceptance, Self-Nurturance, Self-Respect, Self-Worth….

dsc04891Yesterday (Thursday) the Sun entered 00 degrees Libra 00′ as of 8:22a MDT – and wow did we feel it! Here in Calgary it was cloudy, misty, rainy, and a bit cool but not as cool as I thought it would be. Enjoy the pictures herein – all taken yesterday in my ‘hood. I LOVE this time of year – Autumnal Equinox aka First Day of Fall – because the Sun entered yet another Cardinal Sign – Libra – cardinal air. Yet another NEW step – this one on the Mental Body level (air = mental). What NEW ideas, thoughts, conversations did you have yesterday? Libra brings forth BALANCE, EQUALITY, PEACE, HARMONY, EQUILIBRIUM – or at least the inner tug to have more of any / all of the above! Libra rules the 7th House of marriage, partnerships, close one-on-one relationships – where is Libra in your natal chart? THIS is where you yearn for balance, equality etc. How well are you doing with all these themes of Libra, compared to where you were this time last year?

For instance, most of Libra is within my 2nd House of Values, Worthiness, Self-Esteem, Money, and what I bring to the table of personal skills, talents and experience that assist me to attract abundance, bounty and prosperity. Interestingly, the 2nd House is the natural home of Taurus – how to DO it on my own – yet having Libra here, I want to PARTNER with someone in some regard – be it business or otherwise – to help me bring home the bacon! Libra wants partnership and balance – an equal give and take. If I’ve been giving too much and not receiving much to balance it out, then there’s something wrong!

dsc04905Speaking of Libra, Jupiter entered 00 degrees of Libra 00′ as of September 9th at 5:19a MDT, just before the 1st QTR Moon phase began in Sagittarius. Jupiter spends roughly one year in each sign. It takes Jupiter 12 years to travel around our charts. Think back to September 26, 2004 (the last time Jupiter began to travel through Libra) – what were you doing then? Where did you work? What partnerships did you have professionally, personally, romantically? Remember, Venus rules both Taurus and Libra. All about LOVE, Beauty, the Arts, and Music! Hence why romance is surrounded by all of this! How is your life different now compared to 2004/05? What NEW changes do you wish to bring into your life this round? Remember, LIBRA is all about initiating something NEW, mentally/socially within the realm of close relationships/partnerships. Shake it up baby! And Jupiter LOVES to amplify and EXPAND our boundaries about it all too – go beyond those limitations we may have gravitated into over the last 12 years….that kept us safe, away from harm heart-wise…

Mercury Stationed Direct as of September 21st at 11:31p MDT at 14 degrees of Virgo 50′. Yay! Whew! That was quite a heady time for all  of us, considering Mercury RULES Virgo – yep! There was a LOT of thinking, processing, conversations, inner talk, rethinking, redoing, repositioning along the way! So if your head hurt from time to time…no wonder. We are now in the post-Rx (retrograde) Shadow period until October 6th – not 100% out of the woods quite yet. Could be more decisions to discuss, change your mind (!) on, etc. This is why I LOVE Mercury Rx timings! Gives us all a chance to S-L-O-W down mentally, allow that creative/out-of-the-box thinking cap that bring forth new ideas and ways to cope with current issues/problems in our respective lives. How did YOU do by the way? I’d like to hear about it. Any good Perfectionistic aka procrastination stories to share? Shadow of Virgo…and with the North Node meeting up with Mercury in Virgo over the past week or so – the Direction your Soul wants you to head into – via perfecting HOW you wish to BE of service out in the world AND to your own physical body’s health – how did you do with all that too? Think back and give yourself pats on the back – it is as important to KNOW what you want as it is of what you DON’T WANT!

dsc04883Then there was that wee thing called the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees PISCES 20′ on September 16th at 1:05p MDT (mutable water sign) along with that continuing Water Grand Trine that included the Ruler of Pisces, Neptune AND that South Node – BOTH in Pisces – I ask you: how emotional of a time has it been for all of you? Each Lunar Eclipse, especially in a water sign, means we undergo a FULL 28-day Moon cycle within 24 hours! Think about that for a moment –  if you felt underwater at that time, you were! Watershed times to be sure! Yay! Let go of those toxic thoughts, ideas, beliefs, of the PAST (this and other lifetimes) etc and move forward with your Life NOW! Pisces, as the mutable water sign, can seemingly allow us to “go WITH the flow” but whose flow did you go with? Yours or someone else’s? Hhhhmmmm…..any regrets? Still time to get on board WITH your Life/Soul Path of the NOW to reorient yourself (!!) just saying…Listen to YOUR own intuition – not someone else! Listen to YOUR feelings! They are YOURS – no one else around to feel what YOU feel! Are you feeling me here? LOL! Remember – these three Eclipses we’ve experienced since August 18th will propel all of us forward, one way or another, for the next 3.5 years….HOW do you want to move forward in YOUR life? And remember, VIRGO is Pisces’ opposite sign, so if you think you ducked out on the watershed – think again! Mercury and the North Node in Virgo will PULL from Pisces that which you didn’t deal with yet…be aware…the Universe is sneaky this way – if at first you don’t go with the flow, there’s always another way coming round the corner…

And, last but not least, Venus, Ruler of Libra and Taurus, moved into Taurus’ opposite sign of SCORPIO today too! Yay! LOL! As of 8:51a MDT at 00 degrees Scorpio 00′ – and where’s this sign in your charts? Venus is our DESIRE BODY – what is it you DESIRE for yourself, deeply, emotionally, sexually, passionately? Bring out that inner emotional fire you’ve been hiding under a bushel, from yourself, let alone others! What are YOU passionate about? The House(s) Scorpio is located within in your chart gives you clues as to WHERE or HOW you find that passion! And again, Scorpio rules the Ego-Self FEARS of CHANGE, moving forward from the status quo of the same-old, same-old habits, desires, life. If your passion’s pilot light went out, get it back! The last time Venus was in Scorpio was October 24, 2014 – January 3, 2015. Where were you at, emotionally, back then? What was missing then, and have you re-ignited your passion since? If not, why not? And why not do it now? Venus will travel through Scorpio until October 19th when it enters Sagittarius. Bring forth your TRUE Desires, deeply emotional they may be, and yes, your Ego-Self may be afraid of the depth of those feelings! Dive down as deeply as you can, get to the ROOT of your issue(s) (and if you require assistance, I’m here to help!) because the Universe is supporting ALL of us to do this deep work almost effortlessly! Look at all the planets hanging around in water signs! Hello! How much louder does it need to get, and how many more players do you need? LOL!

dsc04932Getting back to the Water Grand Trine for this Moon cycle we begin September 1st: we experienced Juno’s part in Scorpio within the Crescent Moon phase (September 5-8th), then the Neptune Rx + South Node Rx both in Pisces within the Gibbous Moon phase (September 13-16 – talk about Past Age/Life stuff!) and now, within this Last QTR Moon phase, until September 26th, Vesta in Cancer will help us with FOCUSED CONCENTRATION to delve into whatever it is our Ego-Self may be fighting tooth and nail to avoid letting go of that it holds onto for dear life! Just a heads-up for all of us. The MORE we Let Go now, the better our Balsamic Moon phase (typically the emotional ‘letting go’ phase of each Moon cycle) will be. Remember: each Moon cycle brings all of us opportunities for further Self/Soul Growth, changing our daily habits, evolving our Emotional Body to BE as mature as it can possibly be each Moon cycle. And no, if you think you’ve missed the Emotional Boat this Moon cycle – you haven’t. Because there’s always another Moon cycle every 28-29 days….

Blessed BE!

enLIGHTen Up, Eh?

DSC01542

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2012

I began this post at 10 this morning, was interrupted unexpectedly several times, thought I had saved what I had already written, only to find out I have to begin again! Many of us have been experiencing a LOT of Unexpectedness these past several days, unable to finish projects or tasks we’ve set for ourselves. Uranus in Aries – Expect the Unexpected AND can I complete what I WANT to complete for me, please? In between the calls for assistance from others? LOL! What happened to ‘going WITH the flow?’

Okay, back to THIS topic, and it is being suggested that I change the title…so I will…hang on…it was all about the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse…still is but not in the way I’ve written all about these planetary events in the past. Hang in there with me everyone!

Yes several planets have changed signs since this Moon cycle began March 8, signaling a NEW way of working energetically with their usual messages. Plus two eclipses, then twin-powered comets heading our way by March 22nd – closest fly-by to Earth in 260 years! Very brightly too…hence the enLIGHTen Up, eh?

DSC01545

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2012

Dense dark heavy energies have been literally air-lifted off Earth and away from all heartbeats since 2016 began, and especially since this New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Pisces began March 8th. Tomorrow, Wednesday March 23rd, at 6:01a MDT – just prior to dawn – we experience the subtleness of the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon throughout all of North America. If you rise before dawn, and if you can see the Moon watch for subtle dark patches thereon. It won’t be Total Eclipse, hence the subtle darkening only.

This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will occur at 03 degrees of Libra 17′ – a rebalancing, equalizing of the Emotional Body (Lunar) these next 3.5 years. PLEASE NOTE: any Lunar Eclipse denotes a quickening cycle of experiencing a FULL MOON CYCLE’s emotional rollercoaster-ride within 24 hours! BE prepared – and honest – with all feelings, intuitive hits of insights, and above all – in RECEIVING the signs, signals and insights sent to you at this time.

Nothing to worry about nor fear – and yes, fears will surface – hence the Shadow of the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon as it washes over North America – we are working WITH this Moon’s energy for 24 hours to do a ‘clean sweep’ if you will of ALL fears you’ve been storing up until now. Release, release, release! Spring Cleaning at its best – from Within and out. Energetically, emotionally, and via communicating (Libra is the cardinal air sign) in new ways compared to previous experience. Relating with Self and Others in new ways. BEing vulnerable, BEing honest, BEing truly YOU. WITH Love, Compassion, Forgiveness and Strength! Always, in All Ways. Diplomacy, equality, lovingly, heartfully…

DSC01587

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2012

During today’s interesting quest to publish this post, I had occasion to do up a chart for TODAY. Interestingly (!!!) there was a Triple-Headed YOD, or Finger of God, pointing to Jupiter (still Retrograde – Rx) + North Node Rx + MOON – all in Virgo. The planetary players that make up the base of this Triple-Headed Yod are Pallas in Aquarius and Uranus + Eris in Aries.

These planets/asteroids have been learning to work together, creating NEW self-growth talents and skills never before created. Namely, standing up for equality in some regard in your life (Pallas) within community and for Self (Aquarius) that may seem futuristic AND Free to BE Me (Uranus in Aries) with possible gender-role identity crisis – WHO AM I NOW, and I want to DO WHAT? (Eris in Aries) – as we combine a better mix of Inner Divine Feminine/Masculine energies to work WITH and TOGETHER with more ease than ever before!

MORE ability to Receive, Intuit, Feel (feminine power) AND Take Assertive (rather than aggressive) Action Out in the World (masculine power). How well are YOU marrying this mix Within Self, then working through them, Without, within relationships and partnerships in your life?

The Finger of God sign

Remember: during a Yod formation, once we learn to create that new talent/skill, the energy created by working together there at the base, is sent UP to the top of the Finger (and in this case times THREE!) towards the Virgo need to BE of Service, somehow. Jupiter Rx = expansion beyond our usual boundaries of what we’ve been comfortable doing before now, related to our Purpose this Lifetime. North Node Rx = direction our respective Souls wish us to move forward into, uncomfortable as that may feel.

And the almost Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (!) brings forth the Emotional Body – feelings, intuitive insights, ability to RECEIVE the signs and signals from our respective Guides, Angels etc. We will BE of better service if first 1) I KNOW THYSELF (Uranus in Aries), then 2) recognize that I am BOTH a mix of Divine Feminine (able to receive) AND Divine Masculine (able to assert and act) energies, then 3) ALLOW only equal and balanced relationships/partnerships in my life. THEN you’ll know WHAT you wish to expand INTO (Jupiter Rx) to ‘see’ the direction to follow (North Node Rx) AND it will FEEL just right (Moon)!

All in preparation for Wednesday’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse! And if you weren’t conscious of any of this going on today – don’t worry about it. You will have picked up on WHAT you needed along the way anyway, AND will know more by Thursday morning’s rush to get to work! Yes, 24 hours after the Eclipse. If not, could be 3.5 years before that Aha! moment comes in – it is your process. BE truly You – this is most important. Trust. Have Faith. It is ALL in Divine Timing. Always and in All Ways.

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Gemini…

RAINBOW PATHWAYS….ahead…have you picked yours yet? Do you ‘see’ in the near distance ‘where’ you are about to land, INTO your New Life/pathway? This Moon cycle’s YOD, or Finger of God, pointed you into this direction and onto that pathway. It is very important that You decide NOW, and LAND. Do not tarry or hesitate. You MUST place your feet firmly upon your path (what colour of the Rainbow is it?) and walk directly to your NEW Life/pathway just ahead. Do it…now!

September 2015 Rainbow

September 2015 Rainbow

Wednesday’s Full Moon begins at 3:45p MST in the mutable air sign of GEMINI (opposite sign to Sagittarius, where the Sun now sits) and bring a lot of talk talk talk, wanting to be social, heads full of thoughts bouncing all over (what to do with all that energy?!), data gathering and information sharing.

Having traversed the waxing energy of this Moon cycle begun in the fixed water sign of Scorpio, and WALKED through any remaining Ego-self FEARS of moving forward onto a different path, by now that YOD, or Finger of God planetary formation should have indicated quite clearly WHERE you need to head in your Life. This Full Moon Illuminates ALL of the Old Patterns of Conditioning you once held onto, and are prepared to Let Go Of, once and for all! Yay!

The CLEARER the neon sign of your New Direction/pathway, the better (and clearer!) you feel about ALL that you have successfully Let Go Of – yay! Congratulations and Celebrations and Salutations!

Looking at the Full Moon chart I find a Grand Trine (triangle) connecting all the Air signs into a continuous Love Loop as follows:

  • Full Moon in mutable Gemini: brings a bright light onto and into this part of your life re: conversation, communication, how and what you learn and wish to start anew, how you talk to yourself (Lovingly or not so much?) and what it is you wish to share with others in your locale. Go with this flow…
  • Ceres in fixed Aquarius: brings Originality and Uniqueness in how you are able to bring in the Harvest and feed yourself and your family now. Many of us have lost our earning capabilities due to the downturn in the Energy sector – what next? Where do I go to work to feed my family, let alone myself? Ceres is a feminine asteroid, asking us to mother/nurture self, then others, feel abundant no matter what that bank balance looks like. Take a different look at that resume, take this Full Moon opportunity to network in areas not previously thought of before. Take care of the details along the way and don’t get stuck!
  • Mars in cardinal Libra: Interesting, this group of planets connected with Love. Follow the Light of the Full Moon (in Gemini) to connect with your close peeps, then connect with your Unique Authentic Self and nurture the desire to connect within community (Aquarius), then take assertive ACTION (Mars) in a totally NEW partnership direction (Libra). The cardinal signs herald a new season, a change in the weather and the land. What NEW season is upon You that beckons action? Do you hear it?
September 18, 2015 Roses still!

September 18, 2015 Roses still!

Remember, we are still connected to that New Moon “seed” that was in Scorpio – all about TRUST issues (of self and others). Moving away from that which was Hidden, this Full Moon now Mirrors the Sun’s (Soul) Light, Illuminating the unconscious desires that were once buried deep within! At Full Moon that “seed” has blossomed into a “flower” – what does yours look like? What colour is it? Does it represent the colour of your new Rainbow Pathway? Did you land there yet? Do NOT stay on the pathway – head directly to your NEW SPOT on land. Follow that Rainbow/Golden Road, keep your eyes on the prize!

The other planetary formation that will create some stress and tension within (as in “ants in your pants” energy!) is this Full Moon in Gemini in opposition to the Sun, Saturn and Mercury all in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius, both squaring out to Neptune in Pisces! Here again we must create an “AND”, work together to move beyond our current locale (Gemini) and take further Soulful responsibility to set new goals (Saturn), keeping our Ego-minds free of fear and on the prize (Mercury) to Seek our Higher Truth OUT and away from our usual locale (Sagittarius).

Take a moment to see the Big Picture of your Life – stand on your hill, look back at all you’ve experienced and what brought you to this moment. Turn towards your future, see the Rainbow Road that beckons to you, and send out your Arrow of Intention – do this now!

Oct 9, 2015 Okotoks, AB

Oct 9, 2015 Okotoks, AB

The sooner you do this exercise, the sooner you bring in the AND, allowing the Light of the Full Moon to show you the new Rainbow Path into partnership of some NEW connection (could be personally, professionally, with clients and others, over LinkedIn or Twitter or Facebook – who knows?) connecting more directly with your Spiritual and Divine self (Pisces) dispelling any further Illusions, Delusions of Ego-self fear of moving away from your current Illusion (Neptune) and IMAGINE a brighter Now and Future for yourself! Yay! Yet another kick at that Old Age of Pisces can that is the Drama Triangle. Dispel the Victim, that need to BE Rescued (or to Rescue Others), feeling Persecuted (or BEing the Persecutor). LET. IT. GO. Now and forever, Amen.

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Taurus…Part I

Interestingly, the current Moon cycle began in the cardinal air sign of Libra (October 12th), and today’s Full Moon is in the fixed earth sign of Taurus. Both signs are ruled by Venus!

Okotoks, AB Canada October 2015

Okotoks, AB Canada October 2015

We began this Moon cycle looking for partnership (Libra) with which to create Beauty in the world. Today, we look to Self on how “I” can create Beauty in the world, hands-on, something that is concrete, incorporates all my senses AND activates the senses of others upon receiving it. What will this BE?

Each Full Moon brings ILLUMINATION – a spotlight of AHA! moments – as to what your True Self has been looking for until this moment in time. Leading up to today’s Full Moon we have all undergone a HUGE release on so many levels, especially over this weekend. The trigger has been two-fold:

  1. the T-square planetary formation pointing to Pluto in Capricorn from the New Moon duo, Moon and Sun in Libra, in opposition to the Aries duo, Uranus and Eris both Rx (retrograde brings the energy deeply within each of us to transform and heal) that the onward-moving Moon kept triggering along the way, until today; and
  2. The 3-hour solar flare that emitted from our Sun on Thursday, October 22nd. How many of you had the sudden urge to sleep, soundly, that afternoon? Just before the Sun left Libra to enter Scorpio on Friday too!

Now let’s break down more of the details of this T-square formation affecting all of us:

  • At the apex, or upper point of the T-square, Pluto sits in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn which rules all our traditional trades, institutions and big picture of work (i.e. government, health, education, corporate companies (now global than ever before), construction, insurance, banking – you get the picture) all of what we have relied upon these past 2,000 years at least that will somehow, Take Care of Us. We now take them for granted. “Always been there, haven’t they?” Pluto has been transforming all of these foundational ties to our collective past since 2008 – creating economic downturns all over the world, now finally catching up to we Canadians big time. Causing everyone, from world leaders to the woman/man in the street, to readjust HOW we relate to money, which in turn adds to, or takes away, from our Material Gain goals and dreams (Capricorn). Pluto lifts up the carpet to see what each of us has “swept under the rug” to hide away and not deal with – fears of lack, fear of losing jobs, fears of not being able to make ends meet etc. Ego Fears. Past life fears we brought into this lifetime. Look back these past 7 years of your life – how have you fared? How have you had to readjust to walk through those fears? Pluto also transforms the INTEGRITY of How we’ve been doing business with one another since Christ died. Close to 2,000 years ago now. What have we learned? The daily news tells all. Here and Now, Pluto wishes to bring us EMPOWERMENT vs. power over, married to greed, lusting for more. Power and control struggles have ensued over the centuries, getting louder and louder with each war within countries, between countries and greater world-wide involvement. STOP!
  • Side note here: we Canadians went to the Electoral Polls October 19th (just after the Crescent Moon phase, while the Moon entered Capricorn and activated PLUTO therein!) to elect a new Prime Minister to rule our country. Not only did we vote for a complete  party reversal (we went from 9 years of Conservatism to going Liberal again) AND we hired a young and untried leader! Son of a former Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Similar to the Bush father and son leaders of the USA, or will it be different up here? Time, and integrity, will tell.
  • The New Moon position of this T-square formation began this Moon cycle in Libra, another cardinal sign (in and of itself brings initiating something NEW of DOing or BEing) in Air – how we communicate, socialize, relate to one another via PARTNERSHIPS. All kinds of partnerships out there – from friends, to loved ones, to business and everything in between. Libra, ruled by Venus, brings the Scales of Justice – what can we DO for the good of ALL within this relationship/partnership? The Moon AND Sun began this Moon cycle in Libra – Moon brings the Feminine attributes of receptivity, intuition and feelings. The Sun, Masculine attributes of  taking assertive action, heartfully, soulfully. Within Libra, how well do YOU, as YOU, stand within your relationships and partnerships? Still standing, or lost in the crowd, or long forgotten, or taken for granted?
  • Now we bring in the other end of the opposition that tied itself to the New Moon: Uranus and Eris in Aries, both Rx. We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty! Here is where my favourite Astrology phrase lies. “Free To BE ME!” (aka Uranus in Aries) holding hands with Eris – sister to Mars, warrior/mother/sister, goes to any length (if forced to) to fight for the rights of Self AND Others. Eris brings in a gender-role rebalance, whereby men aren’t the only breadwinners, the only warriors to do battle out in the wider world. Women AND Men equally are being re-worked around the Universal Chess Board of Life to BE Equal Partners, in All Things. “I can fix a car as well as the next guy!” ‘Tisn’t perfected just yet. Uranus rules Aquarius – BE your True Individual Self (aka individuation), a HUMANitarian, AND assist others along THEIR way as THEY assist YOURS.
  • Within a T-square formation, two factions are opposed, bringing in polarization (being at odds with one another) or working together over time to bring compromise, a team, a new partnership. DOing so, in this current scenario, will accumulate a lot of good energy that will push UP to the Pluto in Capricorn position towards EMPOWERMENT – I have power, you have power – we ALL receive that which we are seeking. For the Good of All.
  • A lot of the real work comes from the opposition between what began as our New Moon (October 12th) in Libra with Uranus AND Eris, in Aries (these two Rx). The Rx portion is key here. Deeply-held “ALL ABOUT ME!” issues have been zeroed in upon since Uranus entered Aries (March 13, 2011). Since then, all of us have been learning HOW to still BE ME (my true authentic self coming through Uranus) within a WE (any relationship or partnership we’ve been experiencing ever since). Our WILLINGNESS to BE ME, always and in all ways, yet honour Your “ME” at the same time (I honour Your process of Life as You honour My process of Life and together we can hang with one another until it is just a reason, a season or a lifetime to share with one another). Get it? Four and a half years of change within ME and therefore, our respective WE’s. Some WE’s have weathered the inner storms, some have not. Many have left the planet to assist us from the other side.

If you have access to your birth chart, look for where 13 degrees of Capricorn lies – this is where Pluto is currently passing through your chart. This is your apex position of EMPOWERMENT you have been working on (consciously or not) since 2008. The House Pluto is in now, in your chart, brings this awareness forward to you, about your own power and control issues in YOUR Life.

Now look for the New Moon position: 19 degrees of Libra 20′ – this is not only where our current Moon cycle began (Moon and Sun together) it is one side of the opposition in the T-square you’ve been healing this Moon cycle especially. Hence, looking at the big picture of what we are collectively seeking this Moon cycle, namely initiating a NEW way of BEing within relationships and partnerships!

Next look for the Uranus Rx + Eris Rx position: 18 degrees of Aries + 20 degrees of Aries respectively. Here is the other end of the opposition position. The push-me-pull-me tug of war between these two aspects of YOU have been working hard to get your attention about your own battle of ME vs. WE. The KEY is: the MORE we allow ourselves to be truly ME, we let go of the bondage of feeling we’ve been stuck in a jail or isolated camp of our own making all along.

AND, we also allow IN…wait for it…VULNERABILITY. This can totally freak out our respective Ego-selves big time. “OMG! You want ME to BE SEEN as the REAL ME?!!! By Others? Always and In All Ways?” Yep, Love Thyself as Thy Neighbour. Love conquers/dissolves All. Love is the Answer. Love Self, to Love Others. Simple, no? Tell your Ego at this moment how much you Love it, how much it has always been loved. Hugs too – go ahead, hug yourself! AND BREATHE…keep breathing…and read on.

Green in October! Yay!

Green in October! Yay!

To complicate things just a bit more, the other Key to creating an AND between the Aries/Libra factions, is the SQUARE that occurs between Aries and Capricorn AND between Libra and Capricorn. Ready?

Square positions are like four people sitting around a square table. I see the person opposite me quite clearly (face on) and can decide to agree, argue or compromise and work as a team (so this is our opposition tangent). The people sitting to the right and left of me, I must adjust my head (and sometimes a bit of my body) to SEE them, speak with them, relate to them. In other words, some mental, physical and perhaps emotional adjustment is required here.

Let’s pretend where I am sitting is where Pluto sits in Capricorn. To the left of me is Uranus Rx and Eris Rx in Aries (they are sharing a seat this time) and to the right of me sit the Moon and Sun in Libra. Between these two partnerships (now isn’t that interesting?) they have been deciding and working towards whether or not to BE a team, or stay polarized since this Moon cycle began October 12th.

AT THE SAME TIME, each duo notices Pluto sitting there, over to the side. “Do you see that guy? What’s his gig do you think? Shall we include him, ignore him or just wait to see if he talks to us first? What do you think is the best strategy here?” Do you SEE what’s going on here? LOL! Oh life is so cool…

As we deal with two opposing sides of ourselves, we also notice that Pluto guy “over there”. Now we have to decide, do we invite him to join us in this party or do we ignore him? If we ignore him, what will happen? How loud does it have to get before we are forced to finally SEE and acknowledge him? [Remember folks – this is YOU I am talking about – three aspects of YOU deciding whether to work together within yourself, or not.]

Fresh Green in October

Being the warrior types, the Aries duo may decide “We’re okay by ourselves. Really, we are. We don’t NEED anybody else. We are OK just as we are!” so they sit there, arms crossed across their chests, and wait to see what happens next.

Being used to partnerships, the Libra duo (New Moon peeps) decide to change position by turning their heads into Pluto’s direction, saying “HI! How are you? What do you bring to this table and this party? How can we find a middle ground here, equal footing, to SEE one another 100% of our respective 50%? Us? Well we’re married, for a time, then we separate a bit, see one another across the way at Full Moon, remember what we liked and loved about one another, then let go of whatever it was we thought drove us apart, and come New Moon again, we are together! Go figure! LOL!”

In other words, it may be that your Libra position in your chart (that also is a representation of YOUR ability to relate and socialize and partner with others this Lifetime) will be the first to take a step to EMPOWERMENT via this T-Square formation that is bringing ALL of us an opportunity to GROW towards greater equal relationships. The Aries side can be ensconced with BEing alone, playing by myself, all about ME, and forget there are Others in their world who want to play too!

How all of YOU have worked this out in your respective lives – yay for you! There have been some interesting tug-of-wars within each of us since October 12th. Now comes the last BIG one…read on.

On October 22nd, in between the 1st QTR Moon phase Oct 20th) and the Gibbous Moon phase (Oct 24th) our Sun emitted a HUGE solar flare that lasted for THREE HOURS! Totally unheard of by our scientists. That day the Moon was in Aquarius, asking us to BE our true individual selves AND humanitarians AND assist others along the way as we are assisted by them. To remind everyone, this is when we all felt the deep need for a nap.

That evening the Moon entered Pisces – our Divine, Spiritual Selves – wanting to BE of service beyond the realm of Earth. On Friday the Sun entered the fixed water sign of Scorpio, activating deep-seated feelings of fear and angst we’ve held onto Or NOT (Pluto rules Scorpio, so talk about timing eh?). By Sunday, the Moon had moved into the ARIES portion of our T-square. This Activated any resistance to creating an AND between our Libra selves with our Aries selves. [Note to everyone: we ALL have all zodiac signs within our charts; I am a Pisces because my Sun is there, however, I also SEE what I am learning from the two Houses that have Libra and Aries in my chart + where Pluto resides in Capricorn. I am ALL of these parts of ME. Just to be clear.]

Sunday, believe it or not, was the day the wall between the Old Age of Pisces and the New Age of Aquarius came tumbling down! Remember that table of people from before? Add two more peeps – one called Aquarius and the other Pisces, they sit beside Pluto. In the Zodiac these signs sit side-by-side. As in any seating arrangement, people sitting next to one another are very aware of the other. But they don’t necessarily SEE one another, eye to eye. Again, an adjustment must be made to KNOW each other.

Sheep River, Okotoks, AB

Sheep River, Okotoks, AB

We’ve been heading through a transition between the Age of Pisces (the 2,000+ year Age we’ve been leaving behind) and the Age of Aquarius (the Age we are entering) for a while now. No one knows for sure the start/end dates of this transition. What I can tell you, truthfully, is that the wall holding back the Old needed to come down for us to access the New. See where Aquarius and Pisces sit in your chart. This tells you where NEW connections will be made from this time forward in your life. We create an AND world now – no more duality remember. Pisces is our Divine Selves connecting with, finally, our True Individuated Selves (Aquarius, ruled by Uranus) to BE embodied for now on (Full Moon is in Taurus – our physical body).

I will complete this Full Moon in Taurus thesis in the next post. Stay tuned!

BLESSED BE!

New Moon in Libra…

Laurie Rae AND her Mermaid Alter Ego Self!

Laurie Rae AND her Mermaid Alter Ego Self!

Tonight, at 6:07p MDT the Moon and Sun occupied the same space in our sky, creating what we know to be the New Moon phase, initiating a NEW cycle of how we embrace, via our Emotional Body, changes to our daily habits, how we deal with our innermost feelings and emotions, listen to our intuition and insights from beyond the beyond.

This New Moon cycle begins just past the middle  degrees of Libra – bringing forth the cardinal Air element – hence yet another layer of INITIATING the NEW, aka CHANGE this Moon cycle (which ends November 10th). All Air signs signal increased communication, conversation, relating, socializing, networking – and within Libra this brings those close one-on-one chitchats, getting to know one another for the first time, or deepening that knowledge with an already long-time partner, friend, colleague, or client.

Venus rules this astrological sign we call Libra – the Scales of Justice – overseen by the Goddess of Love, via balance, equality, creating beauty, and harmony. The Shadow side of Libra is sitting on the fence, indecisive and unable to make decisions in the moment. Libra rules PARTNERSHIPS, legalities, what’s fair for the good of all. Physically, Libra rules the lower back, kidneys, adrenal glands, buttocks, and diabetes (sugar imbalance). Therefore, according to my sister, Michaella, a marvelous practitioner of Japanese/TCM acupuncture, Shiatsu, Sotai, Reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu to name a few (!!), here is a list of “superfoods” she located on the ‘net this week for keeping our kidneys healthy:

  • Tumeric
  • Salmon
  • Green Tea
  • Quinoa
  • Red Grapes
  • Broccoli
  • Nuts – especially Walnuts
  • Flaxseed Oil
  • Berries – Blue-/Rasp-/Black-, and Black Cherries
  • Garlic, and
  • My addition: Lots of Water to flush out those toxins!

While the Moon brings our Emotional Body/sacred feminine power energy into the mix, the Sun brings the Active/sacred masculine power energy, Equally so. This is where we always begin at each New Moon phase. Here we are being asked to assess (consciously or not) how we are operating EQUALLY well with our Inner Feminine wisdom AND our Inner Masculine wisdom. This New Moon in Libra is asking us to do this doubly so!

Grounded, centred Sacred Feminine Wisdom brings the following abilities:

  • Connection to your Emotional Body – allowing yourself to FEEL those emotions and feelings, walk through them, express them and not escape from nor ignore them.
  • Connection with your Intuition –  allowing yourself to “know” in the moment, on some level, what your next steps / words / thoughts / deeds are to be – FOR YOU…
  • Allowing yourself to RECEIVE – signs, signals, insights and intuitional hits as to what next? where to from here?
  • BEing the bowl receiving the water of intuitive and emotional FEELING / KNOWLEDGE…for both men and women, boys and girls!

Grounded, centred Sacred Masculine Wisdom brings the following abilities:

  • Connection to your Active Principle – what ACTION do I take, after receiving the signal, sign or insights above? Without the “monkey mind” of the Ego-self editing it, fearing it, etc?
  • BEing out in the wide world – bringing your Self with you into relationship with Others, outside of You. Are you BEing seen? Do you see Others? How do you relate?
  • Taking Risks – moving beyond the usual boundaries set forth by your Ego-self before this very moment…BE motivated by your Soul self now…
  • Connection with your Physical Body via your Spiritual Body – BEing aware that you are an Eternal BEing within a physical plane of existence – here our Soul Self shines through for all the world to see. What are you attracting to yourself? Who are you attracting to yourself?
  • And this is true be you male or female – we ALL have BOTH within each of us!

Libra wants equal face-time, your Individual Independent Self with my Individual Independent Self. How well are you showing up as YOU, authentically, really, within relationships, partnerships, friendships, romantic, professional, altruistic, you name it?

As a cardinal sign, Libra demands we Initiate Change in HOW we show up this Moon cycle as Self in relationship with Other(s). Are you the Wallflower? The Warrior? The Tyrant? The Servant? The Lover? The Partner? What archetype describes you? I’ve only listed a few here.

Growth Amongst the Riverbed, Okotoks, AB Canada

Growth Amongst the Riverbed, Okotoks, AB Canada

Looking at this New Moon chart, I see two sets of oppositions that will demand we create an AND between them (rather than stay polarized as we have been before now). They are:

  • Again, between the planets in Virgo and Pisces: BEing of Service here in the daily world AND beyond our Ego-self’s consciousness – into the Spiritual. I keep pulling Nematona, the Goddess of Sacred Space – reminding me to create ‘space’ and time to BE with my spiritual self (Pisces) AND also do my daily work (Virgo). Venus is now in Virgo, hence our Desire Body to heal the physical body via better food, exercise and consciousness of BEing in a physical body, eh?
  • Again, between the planets/Nodes in Aries and Libra: here’s where the Moon/Sun in Libra zero in on “How are we integrating ME (Aries) with WE (Libra)?” Not either / or – we are learning to create an “AND” world since 2012 – how do we BLEND both now? The North Node is still in Libra – the direction our Soul wishes us to head into – the WE of relating beyond the ME! AND at the same time, the South Node in Aries beckons us to heal unresolved issues from our past (this lifetime or past ones) where “It’s all about ME!” to the exclusivity of Others, isn’t working now. None of us is an Island – never were. And part of the WE we are blending is the Divine/Spiritual Self with the EGO Self! Not wholly, because the Soul is taking the lead now, much to the chagrin of our Egos. Ego-self has had its day in the sun (pun intended!) for many many 1,000s of lifetimes. We are now transitioning into allowing our Divine/Spiritual or Soul self to take lead, via Love, Compassion, Patience, Laughter, Peace and Harmony, Forgiveness – to name a few….

The other significant planetary formation of this New Moon chart is the T-square formed with Pluto in Capricorn as apex, and Uranus in Aries in opposition to this New Moon (Moon + Sun) in Libra, both squaring Pluto! Yikes! What does this mean?

  • Pluto has been navigating through the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn since January 27, 2008, looking under the carpet of INTEGRITY to see how well our traditional institutions and corporations are doing business these days. How has your ability to create material gain changed in your life since 2008? Easier, more challenging now, or the same? Most of us have seen major changes in our ability to keep jobs, find work, pay the bills and still keep the status quo of what was our life prior to 2008 compared to now. Pluto is now at 13 degrees of Capricorn – check this out in your chart – look back at all the changes that have occurred in this area of your life. Note the changes in some countries in the world being able to sustain their own banks! Hhhhmmm…
  • The opposition between Uranus and this New Moon brings an opportunity to create an “AND” world for yourself! How do I allow the inner “free to BE Me” Self AND blend with this emotionally AND actively show up in relationships with Others? Equally? Hhhhmmm… Once we figure out WHERE we need to change within Self to allow the new space to open up, to allow the NEW people to come forth in our lives, aka “what do I need to LET go of as a former daily habit, that was getting in the way before now (and I feared ‘seeing’ or changing before now)” then we find the HOW (active principle) to create something new.
  • In so doing, we clear up any stress and strain we’ve been feeling deep inside, re: the Integrity of ALL relationships we have out in the world re: our search for material gain. This translates into KNOWING who I Am and What I Want and Need, from Self. If Self cannot provide, Self asks for Help from Other(s) via cooperation, receiving, relating, working etc. AND by noting the INTEGRITY of Other(s) – we no longer condone power over and greed. This is what Pluto is transforming – the whole world is undergoing a Death, which begins with ME, then my locale, then my state/province, then my country, then the world – do you ‘see’ the ripple effect? Working for or with companies that do business without Integrity – not an option. We the People are now saying “NO!” to un-integral practices re: power, money, major material gain for the wealthy few etc.
  • The Key is this: unless I Know Myself (Aries) how can I ask for what I want/need from Other(s) (Libra)? And once I know what I can provide on my own, for Me, and what I know I need assistance with via partnership, relationship, networking etc, THEN I can move forward toward more upward mobility (Capricorn is the Mountain Goat – he plateaus out if not inspired to Initiate New Change in direction!) and therefore material gain.

What is also interesting about this Moon cycle beginning in Libra AND having the Virgo/Pisces planetary oppositions – Virgo sits next to Libra, and Aries sits next to Pisces in the Zodiac Wheel. If we think of these signs as people sitting around a table, Virgo next to Libra sees Pisces and Aries across the table, not so much Libra next to her. Same with Aries next to Pisces – they see Virgo and Libra across the table, but each other, not so much. What am I getting at here?

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

The planets in Virgo/Pisces right now represent how we are BEing of service out in the world AND beyond this world. The Aries/Libra planets represent how I AM Me AND ME within a WE. Do you ‘see’ how we might ignore the combo here? BEing of Service AND BEing ME within a WE. AND….the better we are able to combine all of this, the better the energy to transform our ability to initiate new change (injecting NEWness into the direction we need to take) within our relationships AND our material gain! They go hand-in-hand right now….I can BE Spiritual AND gain materially at the SAME time! Not either/or!

One more point: both the North Node and Mercury are at 01 degrees of Libra in this New Moon chart – the direction our Soul wishes to navigate into (North Node) that we may not be comfortable with, within PARTNERSHIP and RELATIONSHIP. The WE. Mercury represents our mindset, our mental processes, how we think, learn, communicated etc. Time for a sea change in mindset here folks! WE are not an Island, eh? Solo is no go 100% of the time for now on. Create an “AND” world Within, Without, Above and So Below!

Blessed BE!
