Reveals the "pot of gold" Within YOUR Planetary Cycles

Chaotic Neptunian November!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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!

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo…

20160615_073147This morning at 3:03a MDT the Moon + Sun began the New Moon phase together at 09 degrees Virgo 21′ AND also signalled the Solar (Sun) Eclipse energies to pour forth! Solar represents Taking Action, BEing Active, Act Upon..something Virgo…wonder what you’ll do with this? Read on…

Looking at this New Moon’s chart, I see that Water Grand Trine is still in play (how emotional were you last Moon cycle?) bringing together Vesta in Cancer (focus on family/roots) + Juno in Scorpio (deeply passionate about EQUALITY in relationships, especially those intimate ones) + the South Node/Dragon’s Tail in Pisces WITH Neptune (!!) both Rx (retrograde) too – hence pointing to where this inner emotional watershedding is coming from! Letting Go (via that Dragon’s Tail swishing it all out like a broom). Of Old Past emotional trauma/turmoil from Within re: family + intimate relationships – from this lifetime and perhaps stemming from way way way back there life times that are still impacting us today! Whew!

I find it fascinating that we are experiencing all of this during this year’s Virgo Pantheon! Virgo rules the 6th House of the Health of the Physical Body + BEing of Service (to self and others) in some regard. What will we collectively HEAL this Moon cycle? And far into the near future (3.5 years) due to this Eclipse today, due to the Action we decide to take?

Here’s the current Virgo Pantheon lineup:

  • Moon + Sun at 09 degrees Virgo 21′: Emotional Body + Spiritual/Soul Body come together to feel/intuit/receive insights AND take action accordingly, about the health regimens we do for ourselves (or not!) and how we work/volunteer our time out in the world, beyond our home.
  • North Node at 12 degrees Virgo 43′, Rx: The direction our collective Soul wishes us to navigate (it entered the back end of Virgo November 13, 2015) re: the recurring themes of health + service. Where are you NOW compared to nearly 10 months ago? How have both of these areas IMPROVED in your life? Do you ‘see’ there  are still issues to address here? No worries! We all have until May 10, 2017 to sort it all out before the North Node/Dragon’s Head enters Leo.
  • Jupiter at 28 degrees Virgo 17′ conjunct Mercury Rx at 28 degrees Virgo 55′: Talk about EXPANDING/Amplifying the need for our logical brains to CHANGE its Mind, eh? How much LOUDER does it have to get for each of us to MAKE the heartfelt changes our physical bodies require for better nurturance, energy, being taken care of equally well as the rest of us? Hhhhmmmm….I love the timing of this duo – Mercury returns to where we were at back in mid-August or so with plans, ideas for changing things up – where are YOU at with it NOW? And where, once this Mercury Rx period completes (September 21st – Autumnal Equinox) and we navigate the post-Rx Shadow period (comes to a close as of October 6th), will our MINDS be re: health/work/service? We can change the plans/ideas at any point along the way, tweaking our processes – the KEY here is to MAKE some plans to start off from!
  • Gentle Reminder about VIRGO: the Shadow side here is one of Perfectionism, Procrastination, Delay Tactics, Excuses (as in WORK needs more of my attention than my PHYSICAL BODY does)….need I go on? To Set a PLAN in motion is MORE than what you had going previously, correct? So why wait to perfect it now? It can be perfected at any time along the way as you DO the Action of whatever that initial plan started you on! Get out and DO IT and ENJOY the DOing of it…please….

DSC04516There’s a couple of interesting planetary formations this Moon cycle too that create even MORE fun for all of us! They are:

  • T-Square focal point with Saturn + Mars + Vertex in Sagittarius From the New Moon pair (Moon + Sun) + North Node Rx in Virgo opposing the South Node Rx + Neptune Rx in Pisces! Whew! Just in case the actual New Moon portion of this programme doesn’t get you Up and Going (!) THIS formation will create MUCHO tension and stress Within to a) LET GO of/dissolve the Past Victim/Drama Triangle leftovers of the Old Age of Pisces, b) while creating an AND to move TOWARDS your Soul’s current PLAN via this New Moon cycle AND Solar Eclipse (did I mention these energies will be in play for the next 3.5 years?) into healthier ways of treating your physical body AND how you work…. the MORE we are able to create this as an AND (it can be a walk in the park if the logical mind/brain joins in!) then c) more positive energy will be sent towards being responsible for your personal goals (Saturn) and take even MORE Assertive Action (Mars) to see those long-term goals come into fruition (!) AND then something this way Fateful/Destined comes as a result! Cool. Wonder what that will be?
  • Mystic Rectangle in Earth/Water signs (Feminine Energies): here again the New Moon/Solar Eclipse players are involved. Here we are being asked to combine and experience MORE of how we DO health/work WITH our Spiritual natures (Neptune); at the same time nurturing ourselves via ALL our senses/with value/being hands-on AND create EQUAL opportunities for deep passion/emotions to arise to meet us. These two polarities I just mentioned will show how we push/pull against ourselves (Ego-self resisting change vs. Soul-self seeking change) re: health/work/relationships to Self and body AND others! The KEY here is to create some NEW talents/skill sets that will assist you to move INTO change: nurture yourself emotionally, physically actively in a way you’ve not allowed to occur before now. AND, Connect Above via meditation, walks in Nature, to CONNECT Within to tap into your hidden depths of passionate life/living! Create yet another AND here – active time AND quiet time – with YOU – out in the world, and IN your Inner World.
  • The Sacred Feminine Wisdom Principles do apply here – Allow yourself to RECEIVE those messages from Above/Within via intuition, feelings, insights, signs/symbols (via my friend Diana’s “Sidewalk Tarot”! ask for those signs to be shown to you during your day), BE with the emotions/feelings/intuition (as in WALK with/through them, vs. running away, making excuses, hiding, escaping etc.) AND then take Action accordingly. It can be that simple…is your Ego-Self/mind INVITED to come along for the adventure? Might be an idea to ask…

That’s it! Go for it! BE it! FEEL it! Allow whatever OLD outmoded habits you’ve been clinging to BE released, gently, lovingly and heartfully! What seeds of the NOW do you wish to plant that will be growing along with you these next 3.5 years, let alone this Moon cycle?

And before I leave this post, for those of you interested to know the NEW vestment we are picking up this Moon cycle/Solar Eclipse via Venus/Inanna – as of September 3rd still within this New Moon/Solar Eclipse phase (!) we are taking back our CREATIVITY piece that we let go of back on February 5th. Here Inanna regains her ankle bracelets via the Sacral Chakra. What do YOU wish to CREATE More of, via Virgo (Venus at 5 degrees of Virgo) within your life moving forward, that you let go of in February? How is it different NOW for you compared to then? Here is yet another Sacred Feminine Wisdom Principle piece to add with the Mystic Rectangle formation you’ll be dealing with. Create! Create! Create! Tap into your Sacral Chakra area whilst meditating, connect with your Creative Higher Self therein and listen to what she/he has to say!

Blessed BE!

Pre-Mercury Rx Shadow Begins…

DSC04647August 10th began the buildup Shadow timing to what will be the actual Mercury Rx (retrograde) August 31st. The Moon went into the 1st QTR phase within Scorpio today as well – as of 12:21p MDT – some sort of Crisis to Take Action DESPITE any of your Ego/Brain’s fears to do so…all in aid of letting go of some habit(s) that no longer serve you, personally.

Look back to the New Moon’s themes in LEO (August 2nd) – how are you meant to BE a heartfelt leader? Then the Crescent Moon phase August 6th brought us all through the FEAR our respective Ego/Brain’s have been hanging onto in the Dark of the Moon, preventing us from taking the LEAD in some regard within our lives. Do you SEE what your fear is yet? What Action does your Inner Self/Higher Self wish to make between now and the Gibbous Moon phase August 14th?

In the meantime, watch, listen and take note of events happening between today and August 31st when Mercury actually Stations Rx. All in VIRGO – how we do our processes, learn about/teach them, perfect them, daily with work and/or via our health regimens. Along with Venus and the North Node and Jupiter, we have plenty of assistance with our planetary peeps to RE-work, RE-listen, RE-wire, RE-do, RE-think, RE-talk any and all of the above with Mercury as Ruler of Virgo.

This Shadow timing prior to August 31st brings us into awareness just HOW the upcoming Mercury Rx period (August 31 – September 21st) will shake out for everyone. I already received a ‘wrong number’ call today – something that happens every time Mercury is Rx. Yet it is Mercury’s way to RE-connect us to peeps we’d not normally connect with – if only briefly – energetically it means a whole lot.

Pansies, Cedars Villa, 2016

Allow yourself to BE in your right, creative, playful brain these next several weeks, anticipating the REAL Mercury Rx timing, and let your left, logic brain take a vacation! Bring on your intuition, creative problem-solving talents to the table and brain-storm your way through!

Virgo’s Shadow brings out our need to BE Perfect about something – where is Virgo in your birth chart? This Mercury Rx timing moves (from today) from 14 degrees Virgo to 29 degrees Virgo (as of August 31st), and then seemingly goes backward along the SAME degrees it just traveled Direct upon – what do you need a RE- on? Virgo is about BEing of Service somehow in this mundane world (opposite sign, Pisces, is BEing of Service BEYOND this mundane world). How are you, your Ego and your brain in alignment, on the same page, about this? And if the three of you aren’t on the same page – guess what you’ll experience?

Fear. Resistance. Denial. Procrastination. Excuses.

The current Moon cycle is setting us up to DEAL with some emotional-level deep-seated FEARS of how we LEAD the way, via our heart, with that Service, as of today until August 14th. Sit up and take notice! Love yourself through it while you walk yourself through all the emotions, resistances, denial talk your Ego/brain can possibly think up to do!

Then Mercury Rx will help us all talk about it, think about it, change our minds perhaps? Or bring forth even MORE information we didn’t know we needed to know! About whatever it is/was we thought we KNEW to move ahead on, and either did or didn’t.

Confused? You won’t be, soon enough! Expect the Unexpected these next 21 days, and even more so during the following Rx 21 days! Plans, contracts, decisions, communication devices, transportation devices (as in cars, trucks, vehicles of all types that support local travel). Check it all twice, thrice or more…before settling on anything. Don’t take anything for granted…it will change, trust me.

Great time, especially during Virgo, to organize anything and everything – the house, the garage, the office, your computer files, your lists, your thoughts, your To Dos…get on it! And believe me, you’ll find things you thought you’d lost, re-connect with people you haven’t seen in years, and go in directions you never thought possible BEFORE this Moon cycle and this round of Mercury Rx!

BE creative, BE intuitive, BE receptive to the nuances of the lack of the logical. Mercury RULES the sign of Virgo – so this will be tricky for some of you who love BEing in your mind! Coyote is Trickster – plays tricks on us (Expect the Unexpected) to get us to laugh at ourselves, not be so serious. Join in on the fun! I love this time of year – Mercury Rx – to ‘see’ how it all turns out in the end! The journey it takes me on – because I ALWAYS find out something NEW, a gift, that would not have turned up otherwise! Trust me…

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!
