Reveals the "pot of gold" Within YOUR Planetary Cycles

Full Moon in Taurus…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NAMASTE

Part II: Integration this New Moon / Total Solar Eclipse

DSC01467

Beach Estates Park March 2012

The mutable water sign of Pisces represents the element of water as fog, mist or light rain. We expect rain overnight here in Calgary, AB Canada. If we wake up to fog too I’d say Neptune, ruler of Pisces and this New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse, will be in play all around us.

It is interesting to walk out in nature and ‘feel’ the elements of the Astrological signs. When the Moon resides in earth signs, how does it feel? Earthy? Energetically slower and denser than when it is in an air or fire sign? Check out the weather when the Moon is in fire signs – especially during the summer months – there can be a dry spell of no rain with a chance of fire somewhere in the forests (especially during drought periods). The Moon in air signs seems to bring with it wind gusts to the extremes of wind storms. Interesting to ‘see’ how the elements are all around us AND connected Up with the Astrological signs of the Zodiac.

Today’s New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse path commenced in Indonesia and swept eastward across the waters (!) of the Indian and Pacific Oceans until its end just to the west of North America at sunset (PST). This Total Solar eclipse will last over a 3-4 hour period. People in Hawaii, Vancouver Island and Alaska will see the partial eclipse late afternoon today March 8th, while south and eastern Asia, Korea, Japan and north and western Australia see it in the morning of March 9th.

DSC01472

Beach Estates Park March 2012

Here are some notes of what to expect from an eclipse occuring in a water sign (Pisces) and during a South Node Solar Eclipse, according to Celeste Teal’s Eclipses – Predicting World Events & Personal Transformation, 2009:

  • A Solar Eclipse occurs as the Sun, Moon and Earth align in a straight line. The Moon comes between the Earth and Sun, shutting off the light of the Sun temporarily; hence a Solar Eclipse. A Solar Eclipse can only occur during a New Moon and not at every New Moon – one of the Moon’s Nodes (North or South) will be very near to cause the eclipse. Today’s Solar Eclipse in Pisces also has the South Node moving through Pisces, hence the ‘South Node Solar Eclipse’ mentioned above.
  • The hidden power of an eclipse is that it has delayed manifestations. Between 6 months to up to 3.5 years into the future (1 year per hour of eclipse duration according to Ptolemy) – in today’s case, within Pisces in your chart – what House of Life Experience in your life will be activated for change into the future?
  • With the South Node eclipse, there may be the feeling of an energy leak or drain unless we understand that something is required to wrap up the previous phase of experience [tying up loose ends]. A valuable final product is required. There may be a gift to contribute – could be our own clarity and truthfulness to self regarding what we’ve learned to this point – emotionally and spiritually, in this case, due to Pisces.
  • An old phase of experience may be ending in preparation for a new phase [similar to the Moon’s Balsamic phase just prior to the New Moon phase] and something is expected of you before you are free to move on. You are working through something or working something out.
  • There is a demand to release the desires of the Ego-self, which can be a challenging process because some part of the identifying Self is suddenly under focus. One is forced to recognize what is valid and what is not. There may be an identity crisis, the sense of self may feel depreciated and vitality may be lacking. [Hence the release of emotions, and perhaps relinquishing the Ego or mind’s hold onto that Drama Triangle drama role!]
  • With a South Node Solar Eclipse then, beginnings depend upon release, spirit and ego, and filtering.
  • An eclipse occurring within the water sign of Pisces, ruled by Neptune: Pisces expresses the principles of bondage, captivity, the struggle of the soul in the body, and concern with life after death. It is associated with spirituality, charities, hospitals, and institutions of recovery or confinement. Water signs are emotionally motivated for change. We could see more rain, fog, or mists occuring over the next week or so.
  • Neptune rules the sea, sailors, prophets, mystics, dancers, actors, medicine. alcohol, drugs, oil, gases, chemicals and fluids. The energy of Neptune is to occlude, dissolve, cloud or fog. Pharmaceutical and drug companies and those pursuing activities linked to Neptune will find that eclipses in Pisces are particularly relevant for them, as they bring an accent to their industry.
  • Interestingly, Monsanto chemical and seed company has been in the news this week due to the European Union’s charge at halting the chemical glyphosate’s re-licensing due to documented health risks causing cancer across the world! Remember, Pisces opposite sign is Virgo – all about the HEALTH of the physical body, AND both Jupiter (making it all LOUDER) and the North Node (direction our collective Souls are heading into) are in Virgo, directly so, from that pantheon of planetary players I spoke about in Part I yesterday. Divine Timing, as always…
DSC01477

Beach Estates Park March 2012

Know that today’s Total Solar Eclipse, within a New Moon phase, elicites NEW change that we may not ‘see’ physically within our life until the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, March 23rd, when the Moon is FULL of Illumination, showing us clearly what we’ve been working on, deep within, emotionally, especially this Moon cycle with all those players sitting within Pisces – emotions, feelings, intuition, insights and how well we are walking through them (not running away via distraction or addictions), listening to the subtle nudges of intuition, then acting upon that intuition, trusting and having faith that your Higher Self knows the way, sees the way, and opens the way forward for you. And who knows what other Illumations this way come over the next 3.5 years? BE open to the change.

Blessed BE!

Integration: New Moon / Total Solar Eclipse

On Tuesday, March 8th, at 6:54p MST, another New Moon cycle begins with both Sun and Moon sitting at the same celestial longitude – 18 degrees Pisces 56′ – along with a pantheon of planets and the South Node Rx (retrograde) – all in Pisces!

Sitting directly opposite the New Moon Pisces pantheon is Jupiter Rx at 18 degrees Virgo 13′ with the North Node Rx a few degrees away. Here is where the INTEGRATION takes place – creating an “AND” for all of us – combining, weaving, melding Substance (Virgo) representing the health of the physical body AND the service we do for others, with Nebulous, seemingly Invisible, Spiritual connection – our Higher Selves. BEing ALL of All we truly are. Whether our conscious minds and Ego-selves want to believe it to be true or not. No longer either/or, nor NOT. Both, at the same time, within one vessel we call our physical bodies down here on Earth.

Interestingly, the Pisces pantheon/stellium of players in opposition to Jupiter Rx + North Node Rx in Virgo both square off to one other player – creating what we Astrologers call the T-Square – the apex of which sits Saturn at 16 degrees Sagittarius 11′. These three signs, Pisces, Virgo and Sagittarius, are known as mutable signs – having the ability to ‘go wtih the flow’, to meander around obstacles rather than having to climb or drill  on through. At the same time, in some regard, we must take others into consideration when making our decisions to take action forward.

Any T-Square formation of planets creates a squeeze-play of tension and stress Within ourselves (made all the more louder due to Jupiter’s involvement!) that demands some sort of action we’ve been unwilling to take or make before now. This Total Solar Eclipse, within this New Moon in Pisces, brings added need for action (Solar) just prior, during or just after Tuesday. Where is Pisces situated within your chart? What House of Life Experience is activated for the next 6 months to 3.5 years, energetically for you? THIS is where your life is yelling out for much-needed change. Solar = Sun = vital energy, masculine energy, somehow wanting, needing to TAKE ACTION away from the same-old same-old modes of living, before this moment.

The Pisces pantheon/stellium of players are:

  • Mercury, planet of communication, learning/thought processes, and self-talk, at 06 degrees Pisces 09′: Pisces brings forth greater imagination, dreams/dreaming, intuition and hits of INsight (!). Go WITH this flow, bend your Mind’s Will to BE more creative, insightful, and intuitive.
  • Neptune, ruler of Pisces, all about the Magic, Movies & Illusion – at 09 degrees Pisces 51′: Dissolver of Illusions/Delusions and seemingly blocked aspects of self to the Higher Self. What Mindful Illusion are you desperately holding onto? Hiding behind in fear? Neptune beckons all of us to BE real about who we Truly are. All of us, as One.
  • Ceres, Feminine Asteroid of nurturance, ability to feed ourselves, pay our bills, etc, sits at 15 degrees Pisces 47′: Despite what our respective outside world seems to look like (aka bank balances, pantries, whether we are gainfully employed or not) WE are abundantly taken care of, always in All Ways, in Divine Timing – not necessarily when our Mind/Ego-Self expects it to happen. Gone are the days of expected twice monthly paycheques happily looking after ALL our needs. We now see (according to our minds) last minute, just in time, whew! rescue. Nope! Divine Timing delivery of the bounty, prosperity and abundance in YOUR life, respective of YOUR needs. Do you SEE the bounty in YOUR life? Besides dollars, things and stuff?
  • This New Moon chart’s VERTEX point – fateful or destined point – sits at 16 degrees of Pisces 01′: When I saw this I thought, “Huh, seems this Total Solar Eclipse/New Moon occurrance brings with it something Fated/Destined for each of us AND all of us, at the same time! What will it BE? What I can tell you – something out of your control – there is nothing you can do to stop it from happening – and no, I am not predicting anything DIRE – it is some person, situation or circumstance you attract into your life that is Fated/Destined to occur to help you with this next leg of this journey we call Life here on Earth.
  • The Sun/Moon position that is the New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse point! Here, due to the closeness of the South Node (hence why the eclipse!) to this New Moon phase, AND, according to EarthSkyNews.com, the closest our Moon will be to Earth in 2016, is a SUPERMOON as well as being eclipsed with the Sun. Huge Spiritual/Divine (Pisces) energy coming from our Sun/Moon towards Earth and us.
  • Chiron, healer of Spiritual Separation Wound AND sensitizer to all things energy, at 20 degrees Pisces 54′: here Chiron brings much-needed healing for All regarding that Drama Triangle role-playing our minds/Ego-Self hold as real (victim/rescuer/persecutor, remember?) rather than the real reality that we are each a VICTOR and victorious already Within. We are already OK, already ONE with each other, already INTEGRATED with our spirit/divine selves. The ILLUSION is that we are NOT and have never BEEN. Yep, interesting isn’t it?
  • Lastly, that South Node Rx sits at 21 degrees Pisces 47′ (very close to the Sun/Moon New Moon position of 18 degrees Pisces 55′): Here Unresolved Issues from our respective Pasts (lives, this life) come hurtling forward to show themselves. Could be more victim-thinking/BEing, wanting to BE rescued by someone or to rescue Others so I don’t have to ‘see’ my own victimhood, and/or feeling persecuted by Others or projecting our victimhood OUT into the world via being a bully…or a combination of any/all of these roles/mindsets. Combined to closely with Chiron and the New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse – do you ‘see’ and understand the Soul’s need to take Action away from the Past? Do you FEEL it Within yourself?

With any opposition, we learn to create an “AND” rather than the either/or see-saw back and forth hopping about. Jupiter Rx + the North Node Rx in Virgo, opposite all those players in Pisces, come in with BIGGER ideas to the contrary! Jupiter is our largest planet in the solar system and demands Expansiveness, allowing ourselves to not only ‘see’ the Bigger Picture – to BE the Bigger Picture! The North Node denotes the direction our collective souls wish to head into – new ventures and experiences and relationships not had before now. Yikes! The Rx (retrograde or Inward motion) of their energy brings deeper and more personalized connection Within each of us TO WANT TO BUST OUT of all that Pisces Drama or Illusion or Delusion (or all three!) we’ve been holding onto for dear life.

This Moon cycle (until April 6th), these next six months especially, up to 3.5 years, expect CHANGE via going WITH the flow of your Soul’s Desire, taking responsibility for your Higher Purpose (Saturn in Sagittarius) setting goals for the long-term towards that Purpose – no matter what age you are now.

And yes, what would a New Moon cycle be without a Yod, or Finger of God formation, again? LOL! Joke’s on all of us this time! This Yod points directly at JUPITER Rx in Virgo! With Uranus also at 18 degrees Aries 42′ and Pallas at 16 degrees Aquarius 12′ – these two players create the base of the Yod formation, being asked to PLAY together, create a new skill or talent for us to use, respectively, within each of our lives. Uranus wants to BE Free, and within Aries – to BE ME – in ways you’ve not allowed before now. Playing WITH Pallas – another Feminine Asteroid – to bring OUT the Inner Divine Feminine energy (which ALL of us – men and women, girls and boys – are learning to access and use) of the Warrior Goddess, taking Action toward Wisdom, Creativity, Serving or Caring for Others, INTEGRATING the mind/body via healing techniques you may not have allowed yourself to experience before now.

Think about it – marrying the Feminine-oriented energy of Pallas to the Masculine-oriented energy of Uranus. AND, Uranus rules Aquarius, where Pallas resides right now – and Pallas does bring forth a mixture of air (Libra) and fire (Sagittarius) to the mix. Balance (Libra) and Intention (Sagittarius) towards BEing ME, Innovated, Original and Instinctual (Uranus in Aries). Connecting with your Future Self (Aquarius) who IS an Individual living Within Community! Can you combine any of this to create a new tool, skill or talent within yourself, which, when you do, sends much-needed energy up and over to Jupiter Rx in Virgo to BE of greater service Out in the World AND towards your own physical body?

The Ruler of this New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse is Neptune – Magic, Movies & Illusion. Tap into the Magic of the Universe. Create a NEW Movie that is your Life. Dispel the Illusions of the Past along the way! BE the Integration – Substance/physical body AND Spirit! We are all in for quite a ride!

Moon Cycle reports are available to anyone interested in learning how the upcoming 8 phases of this Moon cycle, with BOTH eclipses, will be affecting and activating your life!

Be curious, be courageous, BE YOU!

Harvest-Blood Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse…

Lunar Eclipse Paths, Google Images

Lunar Eclipse Paths, Google Images

The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox.

The Blood Moon occurs during a Total Lunar Eclipse – when the path of the Earth comes between the Sun and Moon, causing Earth’s shadow to block all the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface. According to EarthSkyNews.com, “the full moon nearly always appears coppery red during a total lunar eclipse. That’s because the dispersed light from all the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets falls on the face of the moon at mid-eclipse.”

Sunday’s Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon will cast a shadow throughout North America, therefore all of us will be able to view this eclipse, as long as we are cloudless! In Calgary, Alberta, the Moonrise will be visible at 8:11p MDT in the ESE direction of the sky. Due to our elevation, the eclipse will begin below the horizon and at the time of Moonrise, the Lunar Eclipse will be close to total already (totality is around 8:47p for about an hour). After which the eclipse becomes partial (around 10:27p MDT). Expect to view this eclipse for approximately three hours 20′. The next Total Lunar Eclipse will be January 31, 2018 and will be visible from Calgary.

ERIS, Google Images

ERIS, Google Images

Astrologically, this Full Moon will occur at 04 degrees of Aries 40′ – and will conjunct the natal Eris position of everyone born between 1919 and 1980 (who are still living!). Eris is a dwarf planet discovered in 2005, doubling the size of our solar system due to its 556-year orbit around our Sun (Pluto’s orbit is roughly half of Eris’).

Eris, known as the sister to Mars, the God of War, was the Goddess of Strife and Discord, believed to have caused the Trojan War. Her jealousy of being left out of a wedding, she threw the golden apple of discord into the gathering. In the aftermath, Paris had abducted Helena, and the Trojan War began.

Astrologically, Eris shows where and how we each struggle against injustice and oppression, defending the weak and standing up for oneself. Here we speak our truth to power, sometimes willing to resort to violence if necessary (which is the extreme of what we are seeing out in the wide world re: the wars in the Middle East).

Here we see the harsh struggle for survival, at all costs, making a stand for what one believes in. The fundamental nature of our human side is to be civilized, until we are forced to stand for what is right, against all odds. Nature is not all rosy – all creatures of the forest must struggle for survival at some point in their lives.

Eris shows us a “Crisis of Identity”, finding out who we truly are, which unfolds when in the midst of INNER discord and disharmony, revealing our true nature. Traditional roles of the past are torn asunder into more equality and harmony – sometimes to the extreme of violence (wars) which affect us physically, emotionally or mentally.

Isis and Osiris, Philae Temple, Egypt 2011

Isis and Osiris, Philae Temple, Egypt 2011

Here the goal is to create a more even Inner Feminine/Masculine sacred power balance Within and Without – aka a re-balance of gender identity. ‘Tis interesting that the discovery of Eris coincided with the onset of the Iraq war (violent struggle for resources) and during the current Moon cycle, the exodus of masses of people fleeing Syria etc seeking asylum within European countries. They all struggle for survival – some via war, others just want to live harmoniously with others. We see the darker side of humanity unfold around us, which must be acknowledged and faced in order to heal.

Eris is also the cousin to Pluto – the Great Transformer of our collective fears, greed and lust for power and control. We all must see and embrace our respective potential to BE violent from Within (verbally, physically, emotionally, mentally) AND Love this part of ourselves in order to become WHOLE. See where you harbour violent thoughts towards self and others, and Love this part of your animal – human side. A healing must be bridged now, creating an ‘AND’ in acceptance of Light and Shadow aspects of Self.

Blood Moon, timeanddate.com

Blood Moon, timeanddate.com

This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse will indeed BE Bloody – “seeing red” when we blindly allow all our inner angst and anger to come to the Full – yes feel it AND love it; we don’t necessarily need to ACT it out (or eat/drink it emotionally!).

As I look at the chart for this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse, I see two struggles:

  • Mars and Jupiter in Virgo in opposition to Neptune in Pisces: how we take Action (Mars) to move beyond current set boundaries (Jupiter) that keep us too safe from risks of BEing of Service (Virgo) beyond the norm (Pisces). How do YOU create an ‘AND’ between the Ego and the Soul’s version of what BEing of Service means to each? What illusions or delusions (Neptune) has gotten in the way of your true Dreams?
  • South Node, Moon and Vesta in Aries in opposition to North Node, Juno, Sun and Mercury Rx in Libra: the Me vs. We age-old struggle (and remember all of this involves the natal placement of our Eris planets, as mentioned above!). The South Node denotes unresolved issues from the past (this lifetime AND past lives), coupled with our Emotional Body issues (Moon) and how/where we place our focused attention (Vesta) re: “But it’s all about me!” This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse EMPHASIZES the NEED to create an ‘AND’ to bridge the Ego’s ME with more Soulful WE balance! Juno brings more feminine need for committed, fulfilling relationships (less inequality / injustice) willing to fight for PERSONAL RIGHTS within our relationships/partnerships. The Sun represents our Soul’s vital principle to SHINE brightly AS ME within the WE – always! And Mercury Rx brings more intuitive, out-of-the-box CREATIVE thought vs. logical into the mix. Here we have the option to CHANGE our MINDS about how we DO and BE with ALL of the above!
  • Question is: How do you marry the needs of the Ego with the larger/bigger picture of the Soul’s quest for inner growth? What IS the bigger picture within your life that needs to be SEEN and HEARD right now? What is going on, right now, in your life, LOUD and CLEAR (Jupiter) to bring your attention into a much needed healing?

What I find fascinating, within this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse chart is this: ALL the planets currently within Pisces and Aries are Rx (Retrograde)!! Meaning – personalizing the experiences of what we are each undergoing to bring more Soul growth awareness to the surface (BEing conscious of our unconscious Ego’s motivations). You can be swimming through a chaotic mix of emotions – tears and anger – (Pisces + Aries) and conversations (Libra) and the need to take instinctual action (Aries). Which and when and how and with whom?

Beach Estates Park, Nanaimo, BC, Nov 2011

Beach Estates Park, Nanaimo, BC, Nov 2011

What is also fascinating is that ALL four elements are included this time: earth/Virgo + fire/Aries + water/Pisces + air/Libra. Two mutable signs (wanting to go with the flow) vs. two cardinal signs (the much-needed CHANGE to BE will be initiated somehow).

Enjoy Sunday’s Total Lunar Eclipse; BE aware of YOUR Inner Shadow as the Earth’s shadow colours the Full Moon. “See the Red” within yourself, allow all the emotions and words and actions to surface WITH intuitive THOUGHT before Action (!!). I love ‘seeing’ how quiet it is during a Lunar Eclipse – notice how the animals are quiet, as well as humans – during the complete cycle of this particular Supermoon/Blood Moon. Then notice all the activity and noise after it is completed!

BE aware; DO action with this awareness. BE ME within any WE. Always, in all ways. This is indeed a Divine Timing experience, and opportunity to “see” yourself more clearly, Divinely, lovingly.

Blessed BE!

Shadow Sides of Pisces, Aries, Libra and Capricorn…

Shadow & Light March 2015

Shadow & Light March 2015

Why am I speaking of the Shadow side of Pisces, Aries, Libra and Capricorn today? Because Saturday’s Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse brought UP and OUT (aka ‘outed’ us all) key Shadow work still to ‘see’ and heal. This was facilitated by Pluto’s movement through Capricorn.

During the latest Full Moon phase the SUN sat at 14 degrees of ARIES (interestingly, Fire + Fire elements), the MOON sat at 14 degrees of LIBRA (Water + Air elements) in opposition to each other, exactly. The other character, PLUTO, was sitting at 14 degrees of CAPRICORN (Earth element). What they all have in common is this: they each represent one of the 4 CARDINAL points or signs of Astrology – heralding the BEGINNING of a new season (hence why Cardinal signs signify CHANGE, New Initiatives, New Starts in our lives).

Aries begins Spring; Libra begins Fall; and Capricorn begins Winter. Two Equinoxes and one Solstice. Two areas that required BALANCING/EQUALITY to create an AND in our lives, in order to allow us to dig DEEPER into that long-winter’s NIGHT of how we reach Material Gain in this New World post-2012….cool!

T-Square to Pluto from Moon opposing Sun April 4, 2015

T-Square to Pluto from Moon opposing Sun April 4, 2015

In order to REACH this T-Square connection (visualize the Sun in Aries in opposition to the Moon in Libra, BOTH squaring up to Pluto in Capricorn – the apex of this triangle or T-Square formation) all of us, respectively, needed to somehow LIVE in the shadow of some aspect of ourself this past weekend – and I mean really LIVE in it. Got cozy with it, allowed it to become LOUD enough to catch our attention. So whatever you found yourself doing (or not doing) Saturday during the 28-days-worth of Moon energies via the Total Lunar Eclipse, THAT was EXACTLY what you were MEANT to be DOing to keep your Ego Mind distracted from the real work going on behind the scenes….

The fire of the Sun within the Fire of Aries – the Sun rules Leo, which represents SUSTAINED Fire, and the Aries Fire is QUICK, INSTINCTUAL, not lasting very long. Aries wants to take action via leaping before thinking; Leo wishes to take long action in order to CREATE something New….and to me the Sun in our birth chart represents our SOUL self. This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse with the Sun IN Aries brought forth that which we only ‘see’ within ourselves for a short time, yet is required to CREATE something NEW our Soul self needs now and in the future.

The air of the Moon portion of the Full Moon phase lay in Libra which brings in BALANCE and EQUALITY through Thought, Conversation, Interaction with someone significant in our life. Remember the Moon represents our Emotional Body via feelings and intuition and those hits of Insights from our Higher Self/BEings/people mirroring that which we need to see about Self.

Emotionally, where were you in your head? What triggers occurred for YOU this past weekend that perhaps totally freaked you out? Perhaps wanted you to ESCAPE (Pisces Shadow) BACK to where you WERE before this MOON CYCLE began March 20th @ 29 degrees of Pisces? Remember: 29th degree = LET GO OF SOMETHING this month….

Okay – so we have something INSTINCTUAL (Aries) that wants to assist our Soul (Sun) self to CREATE over the next 6 months to 3.5 years (due to the Eclipse energy). We also have the NEED to communicate (self-talk and with others) in an EQUAL face-time way (Libra) that somehow rebalances the beauty of our Emotional Body (Moon, at the Full Moon stage) – via the SHADOW of the Total Eclipse – bringing forth OUR SHADOW SELF – that which we usually reject out of hand in a blink of an eye….sound familiar?

Post-2012 we are are ALL learning to CREATE an “AND” world – no longer this or that, black or white, male or female, light or dark. ‘Tis this AND that, black AND white, male AND female, light AND dark – do you see what I am saying here? IT IS BOTH – AT THE SAME TIME.

The KEY transformation (PLUTO) is for us to SEE and EMBRACE our Shadow Self (Moon) AND our Divine Self (Sun)- see both/all sides of our selves – with Integrity, Responsibility, building a NEW solid FOUNDATION down here on EARTH (Capricorn). Once we begin to understand the ‘AND’ portion of living post-2012, we also begin to EMBRACE all of ourselves, all of the time.

The Shadow of Pisces brought our attention to WHERE the DRAMA of the Ego self is still in play within us and our lives. How does YOUR life look on the outside when it comes to drama? This is the reflection (Full Moon Illumination) of what we hold true as an Ego belief on the inside!

Knowing WHERE Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Pisces are in your birth chart shows where this heavy-duty SHADOW work resides, what we have been “outed” into between the New Moon / Full Moon (Total Solar Eclipse / Total Lunar Eclipse) phases this Moon cycle. Very cool and very timely AND very scary for the Ego self.

As an example: I have both the end of Pisces (29th degree aka New Moon placement) and most of Aries (includes the 14th degree aka Sun at Full Moon placement) within my 8th House of:

  • Shared $$$, resources, and experiences with Other Partners (be they business-related, personal, taxes owed to the government, paycheque from an employer, etc) one of the Money Houses….
  • Trust issues – emotionally, physically, psychically – in exchange of money, things, work, intimacy…and the EXCHANGE includes Giving / Receiving…
  • Sexuality – 8th House moves us past the 7th House of the “getting to know you” phase into the really GETTING TO KNOW you intimacy of all the dark secrets we hide from others….and self if we weren’t aware of it BEFORE we hooked up with a significant Other
  • Life-Death-Rebirth – all the questions we have around DEATH and dying…here is where both Scorpio AND Pluto naturally live – so how am I allowing myself to TRANSFORM and die off, via Shadow work healing, some Ego aspect of myself each Moon cycle (and especially this cycle due to all the Eclipse energies)? Or am I just paying lip service to it?
  • Ego Self Shadow fears…..related to ALL of these 8th House themes….and am I allowing them to die off or am I still holding onto them, tightly, dearly?

Then I have the opposite sign, Libra within my 2nd House of:

  • All the ways I allow myself to bring in INCOME, via all my senses, personal resources and skills and talents…is there just ONE way of working all my life or many ways? Am I utilizing ALL my talents and gifts or overlooking my best assets?
  • How all of this relates to my Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence, and VALUES – what do I value about work and working to make $$$ to pay my bills? How are MY Values mirrored by the people I work FOR/WITH? As well as the business itself – what do they DO that I value in my world, within this world?
  • What do I VALUE materially for MY life? What is the balance between earthly material needs vs. spiritual needs? What is my attachment to material things? And how do I honour the energy exchange, materially?
  • This House of $$ deals with our daily needs, how harmoniously I deal with them and allow others in to my life to gain what I NEED to live.
  • Creature comforts, benefits of services given and received. Owning, lending, borrowing. Identifying SELF and SUCCESS via THINGS vs. BEingness….am I of VALUE or am I only of value due to WHAT I HAVE or OWN or have BORROWED?

Then there is Capricorn – in my 5th House – currently on top of my natal MARS (taking Action, BEing Assertive, Instinctual Warrior energy and Pioneering NEW paths within myself):

  • The 5th House is ruled by the Sun and Leo in the natural wheel of the Zodiac. Here we want to SHINE somehow, CREATE something not seen before, via FUN & PLAY and ROMANCE. Our Inner Child comes out here to show us the way….as well as all children.
  • Pleasure and inner satisfaction, those inner yearning’s to BE SEEN and CREATE – to have MY Creations SEEN by Others…
  • Games, entertainment, gambling, sports, how we win or lose, how we DRAMATIZE our lives.
  • Popularity vs. hero worship vs. inner happiness. King or Queen of the Mountain; Drama Queen or Drama King.

So for me, in my life, I have SEEN the tapes and OLD messages of the traditional institutional world (Capricorn) that were still running in my Ego mind (beliefs) about what I could or shouldn’t create on my own (Aries) as a WOMAN towards material gain (Capricorn) because I wasn’t EQUAL (Libra) with my personal collection of talents and skills to BE materially wealthy (2nd House) through Others (8th House).

I was holding into, unconsciously, past life ideas and beliefs (Pisces), that BEing an independent woman in this day and age also means being LESS THAN with or without a significant partner/Other in my life. BEing successful meant LOSING something of myself in the mix (Death and dying – Pluto/Scorpio/8th House). Who knew?

I am currently going through a process of ENVISIONING a NEW reality and future for myself – and hit the wall about it all over the weekend – my Ego said STOP! I’m going no further – you cannot make me! I want to GO BACK, STAY PUT, do NOT pass GO….etc etc etc.

Most of us have ERIS in Aries (her orbit takes almost 600 years to move through one Astrological sign) and my Eris is at 8 degrees of Aries. Eris throws the apple of discord into the mix to see how we regain more harmony and balance in our lives, especially our gender-roles as females and males since 2006/07.

Bottom line here: ALL of us are rebalancing (Libra) some aspect of ourself via Ego Beliefs that no longer work in THIS world of THIS lifetime (Pisces) that in turn have prevented us from BEing our instinctual self (Aries) that takes Action for ME, ‘AND’ WITH Others (Libra) so that yes! We can HAVE successful Material GAIN and goals and responsibility (Capricorn) in our lives, as long as we EMPOWER (Pluto) ourselves to EMBRACE the Ego Shadow values, beliefs, emotions (Moon) AND the Soul Self values, beliefs, actions (Sun)…creating a more balanced (Libra) ME (Aries) in the process. Create an AND World – WITHIN – first, so that we Manifest WITHOUT.

What have YOU been DISowning so far as YOU? What Shadow parts of Self do you reject? Toss away as nonessential aspects of You? That which we reject we project AND attract to ourselves…

As Within, So Without; As Above, So Below – ah yes… we keep coming back to this simple yet deeply resonating Hermetic saying…

BLESSED BE!

Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse April 4, 2015

Felled Poplar Tree 2015

Felled Poplar Tree 2015

Here we go again – another eclipse – and all the energies and experiences that come with it! I’ve done several readings this week for people whose Sun sign or pre-natal eclipse positions or other key planetary positions are being activated DIRECTLY with tomorrow’s eclipse – very much life-changing for them.

Let’s get down to it. Here’s the timing and placing: Saturday April 4th at 6:05am MDT at 14 degrees of Libra 24′. This is a FULL MOON (therefore the SUN sits opposite the MOON, hence the Moon’s position is in Libra, therefore the Sun’s position is @ 14 degrees of ARIES 24′ – Aries is Libra’s opposite sign, capice?) AND it is also a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse timing.

Have you recovered from the previous Total Solar Eclipse yet? LOL! What ACTION have you taken since March 20th? We experienced the New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse on that day – and yes it has only been two weeks yet feels like two YEARS of life experience since!

Speaking of which – are you sitting down? Now take your time with this next piece – it is very important. Each TOTAL Lunar Eclipse brings with it the following:

  • Within this ONE DAY
  • We will ALL experience a COMPRESSED and ACCELERATED version
  • Of ONE Moon cycle – aka a 28-day Moon cycle
  • IN.ONE.DAY!
  • Did you get that? Think of it as a downloaded ZIP file, compressed due to its HUGE size, that works really really fast at the download, AND
  • We EMOTIONALLY receive it all within ONE DAY….
  • Are you still with me? Breathe, breathe, breathe…
Full Moon in Leo 2015

Full Moon in Leo 2015

Next: A Full Moon brings ILLUMINATION, the Moon’s light is totally full, reflecting the unconscious desires of the SUN, sitting opposite. And we know that this Moon is sitting in Libra (a cardinal air sign) and this Sun is sitting in Aries (a cardinal fire sign). Still with me?

Cardinal means initiating NEW change; taking a new tack; bringing in something totally new…put it all together and via AIR (communication/networking/relating with one another PLUS listening to our own Self Talk) via the Moon’s receiving energy (of emotions, feelings, intuition) we then begin to ‘see’ via the Sun’s light energy of vital force to somehow take ACTION in the arena of FIRE (spiritual creative ACTION inspired from Above).

In other words: what INSPIRED action, creatively meant, will YOU FEEL/INTUIT to take via insightful conversations (with Others or Self or both)?

Then we bring in the meaning of Libra (air) and Aries (fire):

  • Libra (where the Moon is sitting @ 14 degrees and 24′) represents the Scales of Justice, equality, balance, being fair and just, seeing the beauty around us, equal face time with some significant Other (spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, close friend, client, partner etc) and how we RELATE to that Other by SHOWING UP, EQUALLY. Are YOU showing up 100% for your 50% of the partnership? Hhhhmmmm…..Libra rules the 7th House of our close one-on-one relationships – those deep getting-to-know-you conversations….All about WE.
  • Aries (where the Sun is sitting @ 14 degrees and 24′) represents the Ram, instinctively running TO something, with Inner Warrior courage and assertiveness, and with the Inner Pioneer of starting something NEW (hence why Aries represents the season of Spring – new GROWTH) in our life. Aries rules the 1st House of your Self-Identity and the physical body and wants to DO something, physically, take action, somehow, FOR something to do with ME. Related to your INDEPENDENCE stance. All about ME.

Are you still with me? Now Aries likes to DO IT ALL BY MYSELF….no matter what. Libra likes to do it WITH SOMEBODY ELSE, with a buddy. In an opposition (this Full Moon) we are being asked to create an AND here: how can YOU still be YOU AND BE with someone else, DOING something NEW? Capice? We no longer live in duality; we are all One. We are learning, via each Moon cycle, HOW to BE, DO, FEEL etc AS ONE.

This does not mean we lose our Self-Identity. It means we KNOW who we are AND bring this self to the table WHILE we relate with ANOTHER. The Total Lunar Eclipse EMPHASIZES the Soul GROWTH of CHANGE very QUICKLY (remember that Zip file?) for one day (yet the energy of it stays with us for the next SIX MONTHS to 3.5 years….just saying) via bringing up Shadow fears that show up via our Emotions, Feelings and Intuitive hits of INsight.

So, bottom line, tomorrow as you wake up, KNOW that THIS will be a DAY of HUGE insights, AHA! moments, emotions, intuitive guidance, and perhaps ACTION to be taken at some point within the next six months to 3.5 YEARS….if you are WILLING to FEEL, LISTEN, and BE with yourself along the way.

One more thing: our Transformational planet, PLUTO, is creating what is called a T-Square to the Moon/Sun opposition here. Meaning that the MORE we are able to create an AND between our Emotional Body (the Moon) and our Spiritual Body (the Sun) by working TOGETHER, we ALSO help to TRANSFORM how we set our goals, creating a more solid foundation of what MATERIAL GAIN truly means to us in our respective lives, all in the name of INTEGRITY.

Therefore, the MORE we STAND within our TRUE INDEPENDENT SELF (not to say we are DOing it all by ourselves) AND partner with Others who seem to be of like mind (air) due to all that open and shared communication (EQUAL FACE TIME) we have, in turn, we will KNOW via how we FEEL (good means go; not good means maybe not right for me?) and following our INTUITION (ease = yes! resistance = no? or not right now?) what ACTION needs to be taken TOWARDS answering the call of how we GAIN something in the world, materially, money-wise, building something that will last, or whatever our heartfelt GOAL is.

AND: the Pisces element of water (remember, we began this Moon cycle back on March 20th at 29 degrees of Pisces) whereby we FEEL and INTUIT something that needs to be LET GO OF (29th degree = end of a cycle) from our addiction to the Drama Triangle (victim stance or rescuer stance or persecutor stance – and for some it can be more than one stance or all three) the Shadow of Pisces in order to MAKE ROOM and SPACE to IMAGINE a POSSIBLE HUGE DREAM of something BIGGER and BETTER than what we have been living already.

Did you hear that? DREAM YOUR POSSIBLE DREAM, NOW, by letting go of “o woe is me” “please rescue me!” “I feel persecuted!” and BECOME a VICTOR of your own life. Stand in your Warrior fire energy (Aries) and ASK for what YOU WANT/DESIRE/DREAM!

Sit down tomorrow and IMAGINE where you WANT TO BE in 3.5 years! The bigger the better. No limits. At all. The COSMOS is your limitation (if you require one). WHO do you want to BE? What do you wish to SHARE with someone? What are your GOALS to a better life? What have you forgotten over the years that you really really cared about, wanted for yourself? DREAM IT NOW!

Butterfly Kite March 2015

Butterfly Kite March 2015

We ALL will have the SOUTH NODE in Aries assisting us to resolve unfinished business in the area of Asserting our Inner Pioneer/Warrior self to ASK and take ACTION for our DREAM or GOAL. If you don’t ASK or DREAM it – how will you attract it? How will you manifest CHANGE and BETTER if you don’t IMAGINE it NOW?

And with this Total Lunar Eclipse – we ALL have the EMOTIONAL and INTUITIONAL energy to BRING IT forward into our lives – in the very near future. Are you with me? Dream that Possible Dream, not matter how big or small, no matter how IMpossible it may seem to you right now. Bring yourself UP out of the morass of depression, addiction, escapism and drama (Shadow of Pisces) into the life of LIVING your DREAM/GOAL, NOW.

One last note: there are people out there dealing with HUGE karmic situations right now, whereby if only they STOOD UP for themselves, to SAY what needs to be said, that CHANGE would occur. Aries = COURAGE. Libra = EQUALITY. Have the courage to ASK for equality.

If a boss is taking a 3-week vacation, vacating the premises before Pay Day, therefore NOT paying his contractors, who in turn are unable to PAY their bills, running the risk of going bankrupt, losing their home, and the inability to feed themselves or their family…and this isn’t the first time this has happened – isn’t THIS the TIME to SAY and DO something about it? How many more TIMEs and how much LOUDER does it have to get before WE.TAKE.ACTION and DO something to CHANGE the outcome?

View of Glacial Ice 2015

View of Glacial Ice 2015

The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and complaining that nothing changes – hello! WE have to CHANGE our thinking and our actions in order to CREATE change in our lives. What CHANGE is your LIFE (Soul) ASKING (screaming?) for? How much louder does it have to BE before you take a stand and so NO? STOP! This is not acceptable anymore!

AND: Expect the Unexpected to occur because our friend Uranus sits next to the Sun in Aries – bringing with him Innovation and Originality. So, once you ASK, Expect Magic and get out of your own way to ALLOW the Universe to answer your DREAM.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” This, finally, is the essence of tomorrow’s Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon.

BLESSED BE!
