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?

Mourning Dove

Mourning Dove, Saskatoon, SK 2016

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!

eVALUating our Perspective of Worth – New Moon in Taurus

Flowering Blossoms 2016

The Sun and Moon came together in the same position in our celestial sky yesterday, creating the New Moon phase, at 1:31p MDT at 16 degrees of Taurus 41′. The light of the Sun, our vital energy and soul source, over-shadows the Light of the Moon’s emotional / intuitional energy, and the unconscious intention/fears of our Ego-self in this Moon phase. By Full Moon some aspect of our unconsciousness is Illuminated to us, if we are willing to look, and embrace it.

The themes (according to Jan Spiller’s ‘New Moon Astrology’) of the fixed earth sign of Taurus are:

  • Money! How we attract it, use it to gain our material comforts, what we desire to own and possess. With Mercury Rx (retrograde) moving back through Taurus since April 29th, all of this has been on our minds. Especially those of us living here in Alberta, Canada, with this week’s focus upon Fort McMurray’s devastating forest fires that drove its population of 88,000 souls out, and completely engulfing the whole town. The town is gone. Act of God or humanly set?
  • Sensual Pleasure. Here Taurus brings forth ALL our senses, including the need to DO something with our hands, literally. Gardening, creating art, building something of value for others to see, hear, touch, taste, or feel. We zero in on physical comforts too, aromas of the blossoms and flowering shrubs floating through the air, and waking up our taste buds via the vegetables and fruits/berries we look forward each Spring.
  • Contentment. How contented are you with your life and what you have going in it? If not, why not? What do you need? What do you Desire? What do you Value? How can you attract it? What is your intention? Keeping to the simple pleasures, such as a walk in Nature? What do you appreciate and have gratitude for?
  • Perseverance. This is what is required for our money goals (or whatever Desire goal we have in mind) – to Keep on Keeping On – no matter the struggles, Ego-Self resistance/denials/illusions and delusions. If unemployment is high in your locale, do you give up or do you resist the ‘o woe is us’ perspective and keep looking despite the nay-sayers? How much do you value your Desires? What are you willing to do to make the goal a reality?
  • Patience. Yes, that Bull in the sunny pasture, eyeing an enticing distraction across the way – eVALUating whether it is WORTH the effort to lumber onto its feet, and move, or let that opportunity pass by for yet a better morsel to show itself? Again VALUE – how high or low is your value system? And how do you apply it and to what and when? What motivates you to action? Is it from a place of Fear or Love? Are you reliable, staying the course toward that goal? Do you show up or just pay lip service for the benefit of others?
  • Self-Worth. Here is the crux of the issues most of us grapple with. Am I worthy? Is it worthwhile to expend the time, energy and sweat to attain whatever it is I truly Desire? Venus rules both Taurus and Libra – Taurus is all about how I can create this on my own, with my own hands and personal resources, talents and skills that I bring to the table. Libra does so in partnership/relationship. Right now, what are YOU bringing to the table that you feel/know/think to be WORTHWHILE? Is the effort worth it? Are you worth it? Self-esteem, self-confidence, self-respect, self-love, self-acceptance all have a say in how WORTHY you feel/think/know yourself to be. What are your boundaries? What is your value system? What ARE values? See Dr Demartini’s Valuation Process on his website – very inSIGHTful!
  • Releasing Stubbornness. Yes, fixed earth, stubborn as a Bull at times of change. Do you go willingly or with mucho resistance? Or a combination? Here the fear of change comes into play. The opposite sign to Taurus is Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, the Lord of Transformation of Ego-Self deep-seated fears. Trust issues abound – of self and others. Trusting others to tell us the truth but perhaps not the whole truth. At least not any truth that brings us face-to-face OUTSIDE the illusions we have constructed for ourselves that we believed to be Truth. Wanting to run and hide, or come out and bite – these are the behaviors of denial of our Ego-Self. Because Taurus is about comfort, safety and security. Why would any self-respecting Ego want to leave this behind for the Unknown and explore that new territory? Keeping the Status Quo does have its price. Stagnation, attachment to Past achievements without looking in the Now Moment for new Desires to achieve further growth. Being possessive – holding on too tight, refusing to let go – of stuff, ideals, beliefs about yourself. How does this support inner soul growth?
  • Physically, Taurus rules: coughs; the throat, chin and neck; the thyroid gland; your voice and vocal cords. You will know when you stand in your WORTHINESS, feel VALUED, BE of VALUE, and when you are not. These areas of your body will speak out – laryngitis, sore throats and coughing – all signs of suppressing your value and worth. Speak up and ask for what you want and Desire – no one truly reads our minds! If your needs are not being met, whose fault is that, truly?

It will be interesting for all of us to ‘see’ what is Illuminated by Full Moon (May 21st) of our perspective of self that we had no inkling about prior to this Moon cycle. Regarding our Desires (Venus) of WORTH, our VALUES and goals (Taurus).

2016 April MorningWe continue to experience an Earth Grand Trine – being hands-on with the need to create something solid – see the fruits of our labours actualized – literally in some regard. That is of lasting VALUE, WORTHWHILE in the doing of it. By you, for you. Not for the world at large.

There will be some Destined/fated transformation coming from Pluto pulling back the carpet of what/how we VALUE material gain in our life. What does it MEAN to you? What are you willing to let go of (fleeing an awesome forest fire, leaving all your worldly goods behind you, literally) to walk into the Unknown for, TRUSTING in self and the Unknown realms that all will be well and work out for the good of all?

Jupiter and the North Node, both Rx, will expand and amplify the need to move FORWARD toward our respective Soul’s urgings re: how and where and when to BE of Service, going with the flow, yet following some rules of protocol and engagement. And this New Moon pairing with Mercury Rx and Vesta (focused concentration) of being mindful of our values, worth/worthiness/is it all worthwhile.

Heartfelt Love and Light is sent to ALL the people (and the animals!) who lived and worked in Fort McMurray, Alberta Canada – know that you will be supported and valued far beyond what now looks like the ashes of your life as you once knew it. BE the Phoenix and rise above what was, and fly towards what will BE! Trust, have Faith, and know all of Alberta is coming forward with open arms and hearts in your time of need!

Blessed BE!

May Day/Eve and Celtic Fairy Goddess Cordelia…

May Blossoms 2016

May Blossoms 2016

Today, Sunday May 1st, was celebrated as the Celtic First Day of Summer in honour of the Brythonic Goddess, Cordelia, of spring blossoms or the summer flowers. She was originally a sea goddess, daughter of Lir (Llyr), the sea god. Similar to the Greek Persephone.

On May 1, when Cordelia appears, Gwythr, the god of air, and Gwyn, god of the underworld, engage in a battle over her.”Goddesses in World Mythology, by Martha Ann & Dorothy Myers Imel

The celebration was called Bealtaine or Beltane, the ancient pastoral festival held when the herds were turned out into the fields for the summer. The fertility rituals attracted witches and fairies, and celebrants had to be careful not to sleep outside on that night. This festival is still celebrated in the Scottish Highlands, Wales, Brittany and the Isle of Man.

Apple Blossoms 2016

Apple Blossoms 2016

According to The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols & Sacred Objects, the Maiden, Cordelia, was celebrated for her virgin or “flower” aspect, harbinger of the fruit to come. It was a time of “wearing of the green”, in honour of Earth’s new green garment, as well as a time of sexual license, symbolizing nature’s fertilization: a honey-moon when marriage bonds were temporarily forgotten and sexual freedom prevailed in rural districts all the way up to the sixteenth century.

The Maypole, still known in the East as the god’s phallus, was planted in Earth’s womb and celebrated with dance and song. In northern Europe there were traditional “May ridings” featuring the King and Queen of May who represented Frey and Freya. Couples paired off and followed them into the woods for orgiastic encouragement of the new growth season.

Last QTR Moon phase in Aquarius

Last QTR Moon phase in Aquarius

Astrologically, as I write this post, the Sun is at 10 degrees of Taurus 37′, the fixed earth sign that designates the actual Growing Season of Spring. The Moon is still in the Last QTR phase, sitting at 29 degrees Aquarius 45′, just about to move into the mutable water sign of Pisces.

Venus, ruler of Taurus, sits at 01 degrees Taurus 56′, with Mercury Rx and Vesta both sitting at 23 degrees of Taurus. Bring forth your Desire Body (Venus) and set about seeding that which you wish to grow this Spring and Summer. Where is the sign of Taurus in your chart? This is where new fertile desires grow for you personally this time each year.

We are also experiencing an Earth Grand Trine, connecting the Sun, and Mercury Rx with Vesta in Taurus to Pluto Rx in Capricorn and both Jupiter Rx and the North Node in Virgo – all within the elemental signs of earth. During Earth Grand Trine timings we tend to sensuality (Taurus) materialism (Capricorn) and/or a talent for business (Virgo). A Grand Trine brings 3 or more planets together within the same element, in this case earthy practical and hands-on energy to the fore. Hence itchy hands wanting to DO something – with the garden, houseplants, pruning trees, planting seeds and setting out plants to clearing out drawers, closets and moving furniture around (aka Spring Cleaning!).

New Leaf Growth 2016

New Leaf Growth 2016

Today feel with ALL your senses the warmth of the Sun’s rays, hear the call of birdsong, smell the blossoms and budding tree leaves and grasses, and see the glory of God’s and Cordelia’s creations amid the colours, textures and structures. Can you also taste it? Celebrate the Bounty of Mother Earth all around you, no matter how that bounty is reflected within your bank account or kitchen cupboards at this moment. As Within, So Without.

Surround yourself with gratitude for the new fertile growth happening Within and Without. Return to that childlike wonder to ‘see’ with awestruck eyes the creation of Nature through the fairies and sprites and other magical creatures. Give thanks for their handi-work!

I honour Cordelia this day for all her fertile sensuousness that stirs me into further hands-on action within my home, my work, and my world.

Blessed BE!

Mercury Rx in Taurus, April 28 – May 22, 2016

Mercury begins to Station Rx (retrograde – seemingly about to move backwards) for the second time this year. On April 28th at 11:20a MDT Mercury begins the logical vacation it takes three times yearly. This round has Mercury going back over the same degrees it travelled directly through since April 14th, bringing a chance to rethink, respeak, reprocess thoughts and conversations we’ve had until April 28th.

As Mercury turns Rx, the usual outward and direct energy turns inward for further reflection. What have I said, thought about and learned of that now needs some time to percolate? This includes how we talk to ourselves. Lovingly or not so much?

The degrees and sign Mercury is revisiting will be between 14 degrees of Taurus 20′ and 23 degrees of Taurus and 35′. Wherever this range of longitude resides in your birth chart is where your “do-over” occurs until May 22nd when it Stations Direct again at 7:20a MDT.

Mercury in Taurus brings out our value systems for review, what we value about the collection of skills, talents and personal resources we have to offer in the world. How are you showing up with them? Are some hidden? Why? Are you ashamed of showing those skills? Do you not feel worthy of having them? Perhaps you have natural talents untested by degrees and certificates that seem to be required in today’s job market? What do you VALUE about yourself?

If you are having difficulty determining what values are, let alone what yours are, consider this link to Dr. Demartini’s Valuation exercisehttps://drdemartini.com/value_determination/determine_your_values – and see for yourself. I have done this exercise a few times within the past three years. Whenever I seem to undergo a major inner transition time I feel the need to re-evaluate myself via my values. Could be because I have my Moon in Taurus and South Node right beside it. I need to feel (Moon) what I value now compared to where I was in the past (South Node). And to do so tactily (Taurus).

Taurus also brings forth the need to connect sensuously – as in ALL our senses – not just the mind! Hence smells, tastes, feelings, what we see, hear and touch will all combine to show our way forward, mindfully, after this Mercury Rx period completes itself. I also include my 6th sense – intuitive insights – into the mix.

Taurus, ruled by Venus, asks us , “What do you want to create by yourself (vs. the other sign Venus rules, Libra, wishing to create WITH someone else – via partnership and relationship). Taurus is a fixed earth sign – hands-on, tactile, actually creating something you can physically pass on to another. Dedicated to the task at hand, concentrated effort and energy to get the job done! Hence all the workmanship of woodworking comes to mind – detail work of embroidery, lace-making, artwork, design, cooking, baking – you see the theme.

Taurus in your chart shows where you generate something physical to share with others. For me it is two-fold: I have Taurus within my 9th House of being teacher, creating handouts for my clients and Astrology students – something they can refer to into the future after the readings and classes are long over. I am also student here – so the copious amounts of notes I create as I study and research topics I am interested in.

Taurus straddles into my 10th House of my professional/public life. Here, when I work in office jobs, I tend to create procedural manuals, collecting all the knowledge and processes of how to do this job into one source, for future referral by others when I am long gone. I have also brought this talent into community newsletters I’ve written about recycling as a volunteer. Do you see how this could translate into your life?

Mercury Transits through the Houses (according to Robert Hand’s Planets in Transit) show possible themes being retraced in your life at this time, depending on where Taurus falls in your birth chart:

  • 1st House: expressing your point of view to others – with Taurus I’d say via the written word mostly – emails, texts, letters. Yet with all your others senses at play – be creative!
  • 2nd House: Taurus rules this House, therefore you will attentively be drawn to what you value in life – materially, intellectually or spiritually – and how to plan for them, negotiate property or loans, your financial planning time of year (we Canadians have been sending in our Income Tax returns before the April 30th deadline!). Good time to explore and define what YOUR values truly are (see that link above).
  • 3rd House: Mercury rules this House, therefore his energies will intensify via group discussions/conversations, network and meet new people, possible local travel, with more connections with relatives, the people you live with and your neighbours.
  • 4th House: here you’ll withdraw from the world to reflect upon all the ideas you’ve encountered since April 14th especially. Examine your personal and domestic life, with immediate family discussions.
  • 5th House: A great time to journal about Self, expressing your thoughts creatively, then sharing them with others. Use the mind for amusement via reading, writing, playing games that require mental agility.
  • 6th House: Two categories here – Work and Health. At work pay more attention to detail, using the best processes possible. Plan carefully, work out the details in advance so there are no surprises. You can be critical of others here and be careless of other’s Ego needs. Healthwise – can feel nervous or anxious about non-rational fears. You may become concerned about your health and exercise regimen or at least have your attention drawn to it in some regard.
  • 7th House: Excellent time to clarify and explain issues to close relationship peeps in your life (friends, partners, clients, coworkers). Also a good time to consult with a professional on an issue you are concerned about.
  • 8th House: Here we tend to take time for deep, inward reflection about the truth of self – anything hidden, especially those Ego-based fears you’ve been hiding from yourself. You may have to deal with joint resources and property issues at this time.
  • 9th House: Excellent time for study or further education – or at least looking into future courses you’d like to take. Eager for knowledge and new experiences, wanting to see the bigger picture in your life, how the many parts make up the whole of your Life Purpose.
  • 10th House: Plans for your professional life and perhaps a club or organization that you can volunteer in that expresses you in the outer world.
  • 11th House: You’ll be thinking about dreams and wishes, goals for your next year of Life Experience. Time to reflect on previous goals – have they come to fruition? If not, why? How well did they manifest? Are these goals your own or something others wanted for you instead? Examine attitudes re: group ideals and standards – where do you stand?
  • 12th House: Here is the Hidden Self House – so you may tend to keep what you’re thinking and feeling to yourself. Or, become more in touch with these hidden aspects of yourself, spiritually, via unconscious drives of your personality showing themselves to you via meditation, yoga etc.

Remember, each Mercury Rx timing or transit brings any or all of the following:

  • Expect the Unexpected – via information you didn’t know you needed to know! From a book, a TV show, a conversation, chance encounter with an old acquaintence or stranger, or something technical breaking down – aka computers, phones, cars, office machines – anything electrical that brings us communication or ability to travel locally.
  • Pay Attention! Your mind needs to BE in the Moment – otherwise you’ll miss an error, create an accident, miss an opportunity to create something new (Taurus) that you might not have connected the dots to before now. Double and triple check those documents and contracts! Don’t sign anything unless you absolutely ‘feel’ it is right to do so.
  • Think outside the logic box – play with the thoughts, brainstorm with others, look at all sides rather than just the usual side. Our mental focus and attention shifts – and when Mercury is Rx, away from logic. Creative troubleshooting via feeling your way, intuiting new avenues of direction and process.
  • Be conscious of your words – and their affect on others. What is true for self to be direct and up front may be felt as a slap for someone who is more sensitive. Delivery of your conversation, no matter the heartfelt intention, can be misconstrued. Hence why I love Mercury Rx – a chance for a do-over! Perhaps in person next time?
  • Speaking of – when was the last time you listened to your Inner Talk with yourself? I mean honestly listened to the rote of it? Any bad habits creating a rut? Bring in more loving and creative means. Think of your Inner Talk as if you were talking to a dear friend – would you take to them the way you talk to yourself? Hhhmmm…
  • People from the past – colleagues, friends, allies, groups you belonged to –  someone will come forward at some point to reconnect. Information you didn’t know you needed to know….
  • Once Mercury Stations Direct again May 22nd, we have the post-Rx Shadow timing of yet another do-over! Direct again – where we were at April 14-28th! This will last until Mercury returns to 23 degrees of Taurus – June 7th! Here is yet another opportunity to directly communication what you value, however that may look.

Yes there will be mishandled communications, tasks dropped, calls misconnected, you name it. There is always a reason to the WHY of it. Be patient, watch your stubbornness to hold the party line or just your own line, rather than allowing to ‘see’ the other’s opinion and point of view. Create something of lasting value, Within and Without.

Blessed BE!

Something Destined This Way Comes…

DSC04239

Full Moon, Calgary, AB Canada

Tonight’s Full Moon @ 11:24p MDT occurs in Scorpio – 02 degrees 31′ to be exact. Which is what Scorpio is all about – details details details. Depth. Passion. Fear….Trust issues.

What is extraordinary about tonight’s Full Moon is the Star of David formation created from two Grand Trine sets of planets/points within the Full Moon chart. One Grand Trine is made up of planets within Earth signs, pointing Up; the other is made up of planets/points in Water signs, pointing down. As Above, So Below.

One of the sensitive points within the Water Grand Trine is the Vertex – a point of Destiny or Fate, sitting within the cardinal water sign of Cancer. The family, mothering/fathering, nurturance, home and hearth. Possessiveness, compassion, caregiving, emotional body of feelings and intuitive insights. Also, exit stage left skittering away to avoid all confrontation. Or digging one’s heels in, refusing to budge AND digging a hole for oneself in the process.

This sensitive point, the Vertex, brings forth unexpected CHANGE into our lives. Something unforseen, unplanned. Joined elementally to Juno Rx (Retrograde) in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, we have a highly emotional and sensitively intuitional connection. Neptune dissolves our illusions/delusions away, while Juno brings in the emotional NEED for a balanced, equal blend of Man/Woman, masculine/feminine energy power. BOTH are needed at this time. Combined with the Vertex in Cancer – what NEW family connections are coming our way? Soul family? Business family? Extended family we’ve not been in touch with until now?

DSC04348

Okotoks, AB Canada

The Earth Grand Trine joins Pluto Rx within Capricorn with Vesta and Mercury in Taurus, then Jupiter and the North Node, both Rx, within Virgo. Here we undergo inner EMPOWERMENT (Pluto Rx) to climb higher than usual to find our material gain (or, rather, take a totally different path than usual towards it). With concentrated focus (Vesta), mindfully (Mercury), we take a hands-on approach to create something by using our respective toolboxs of personal talents, skills and experience. Once we’ve figured these two out, THEN we move forward towards our Soul’s intented direction (North Node) allowing ourselves to step out of our usual limitations and boundaries of who we thought we were re: BEing of Service out in the world. Discerning the processes and rules of engagement along the way. Being the apprentice or mentor or teacher/student.

During every Full Moon event, the Sun sits directly opposite the Moon. Tonight the Sun is at 02 degrees Taurus 31′. Values, possessions, sensual accuity to create something tangible, our personal talents and skills and experience that we use to bring money towards us. The Sun’s vital force energy asks us what ACTION do we wish to take, while the Moon’s emotional/intuitional energy asks us what do we wish to RECEIVE?

Some believe the Full Moon is a reflection of the Sun’s unconscous desires. Considering Venus rules Taurus (how can I create this by myself), as our Desire Body, what has been an Unconscious Desire until now? What do you value about YOU? What do you distrust? The opposite sign, Scorpio, brings hidden depths of passions and the fears to allow others to SEE the passion we have! Here we may distrust ourselves to the point of hiding relevant parts of ourselves, totally denying those aspects to BE seen, heard and answered!

DSC04331

Sheep River Snow

What are you afraid of, deep down? Tonight’s Full Moon will Illuminate those hidden fears as well as the passions held down below those fears. I’d rather live a passionate life than a fearful one, wouldn’t you? LIVING Life is passion. Hiding from Life is fear.

Pluto Rx within Capricorn is the Lord or Ruler of Scorpio, hence Lord of this Full Moon. Allow yourself to glimpse down into your own Underworld to ‘see’ what you’ve buried deeply within that is begging to ‘see’ and BE in the Light of this Full Moon. Transformation may be your Destined path. Allow it to occur, As Within, So Without.

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Aries April 7, 2016

DSC04274

Easter Sunday Sunrise, Okotoks, AB

Another Moon cycle is winding down as I write this post. March came in like a Lamb and definitely went out like Lion – energetically speaking! We experienced the two Eclipses – Solar Eclipse in Pisces with the last New Moon March 8th, then a Lunar Eclipse in Libra with the Full Moon March 23rd. Tell me you didn’t undergo some excelerated inner growth?! I dare you….

We all left behind more of the Old Age of Pisces “drama triangle” roles behind us (victim and/or rescuer and/or persecutor/bully), many of you actually stepped off and away from that addiction for drama (!!) along the way. BEing in the moment, as your truest self, centred, at peace is the end game now. We can all learn to let go of our addiction to drama, to BE enLIGHTened Within! Keep on Keeping on everyone. Let’s move onto what’s in store for us in the next Moon cycle…

Tomorrow, Thursday April 6th, we begin a new New Moon at 5:24a MDT in the cardinal fire sign of Aries, where the Moon and Sun sit together at 18 degrees of Aries 05′. Check your charts – what House of Life Experience does Aries reside in? Could be one or two if it’s straddling between two Houses. Check your House cusps, they’ll tell you the starting degree/minute of the Sign therein. The cardinal fire of Aries demands the NEW, instinctually, physically, assertively. BE your own inner Warrior/Pioneer in ways never ventured into before now.

The House in your chart that contains 18 degrees of Aries is the House of Life Experience you will be finding LIBERATION within soon enough, due to the upcoming conjunction between Uranus and Eris in June! We all begin to FEEL this need to BE our independent selves as of this New Moon cycle! Pay attention to yourself. Instinctual need to take Action, BE Assertive, bring forth your Inner Warrior of Courage, and Pioneer paths Within not travelled before now, will be key themes to look for.

Mars rules Aries, and currently sits within the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius (at 08 degrees) – this planet rules this New Moon cycle. Mars demands assertive action (not combative nor aggressive!) to stand UP for Yourself, your beliefs, and take your righful position re: your Life Purpose this Moon cycle.

In the New Moon chart, I see many players still within Pisces, and some that have moved off into Aries now. Interesting rolling stelliums in both signs – planets so close together they are figuratively ‘holding hands’ learning to work and play well with one another! Let’s take a closer look now:

Pisces contingent is:

  • Neptune then South Node Rx + Chiron + Ceres: here we have the planet of Dissolution, Imagination, Dreams/dreaming, and Magic, Movies and llusion (Neptune) hanging back from the rest. What did the previous Pisces New Moon dissolve in you? Did your Ego-self allow the old suit of Drama to be removed once and for all? If not, you have another opportunity to allow this to happen within this new Moon cycle!
  • Any unresolved issues from our collective past (South Node) re: addictions, escapism, drama (!) will continue to be healed (Chiron) along with any disconnection wounds from our Spiritual bodies.
  • Nurturance of Self (Ceres) is key! She wants to show us what we needed for nurturance as children AND how we allow nurturing in now as adults.
  • Together, the South Node Rx + Chiron + Ceres are showing us a Higher Way of Letting Go via forgiveness of self and others in order to HEAL our wounds of spiritual disconnect we’ve carrying around for many lifetimes within our cells/DNA, then thoughts/actions of kindness, gentleness, and love with self and others come forth.

Aries contingent is:

  • Venus, then Sun/Moon + Uranus + Eris: our Desire Body planet, Venus, brings forth a need for solitude, alone time, space to connect with ME, Myself & I this month! How else will you know for sure what it is YOU want and require moving forward? What do you DESIRE (Venus) to attract into your life now? How will you answer this question if you are running around willy nilly looking after others’ needs and not your own? Take time out for YOU this month – very important – and listen to your Heart’s Desires. Journal about it all. Take time out for YOU.
  • A whole lot of forward movement with the rest of these Aries players! Once they ‘hear’ what it is you truly want/need – what is your Intention via Venus? When you do that work, then the Soulful action will take place (Sun), with Emotional Body issues to feel, intuit from, and receive hits of insight of (Moon) regarding what Daily Habits are no longer serving You, blocking your path forward (!!). BE honest with yourselves. Any resistance from your Ego-self will indicate you are on the right track!
  • Then, Expect the Unexpected (Uranus) and allow your futuristic innovations and originality to come forth! You’ve been asking for the changes – are you prepared and ready to RECEIVE them? Will your Ego-self and/or mind create Fear-based resistance to keep you back behind that Old Curtain of Illusion/Delusion Neptune is wanting to dissolve for you?
  • Then Eris brings forth that which you have long neglected Within you – needs and desires that have been IGNORED, by You! Eris doesn’t like to be ignored, nor does she enjoy being left out of the party! Otherwise deep anger can rise up, seemingly out of nowhere! Take note! If you become angry, even full of rage at any point within this Moon cycle – this is a good sign that you have been triggered to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ whatever it is you have DENIED yourself up until now! Again, daily journalling will help you keep track of what’s coming up for you. And no projecting your anger or blame others for that which you have denied yourself! It was never their responsibility in the first place! The buck starts and stops with you.

Mercury will go Rx (Retrograde) for the second time this year this month. I will blog about those details in another post! Stay tuned!

Good grounding for us all due to an Earth Grand Trine connection between Pluto in Capricorn, Vesta in Taurus and Jupiter + Vertex Point + North Node Rx in Virgo! That Vertex Point – fated/destined people/circumstances this way come! Karmic healing will be very LOUD due to Jupiter’s influence to head directly INTO the direction our Souls wish us take (North Node)! Yay! Watch out for the Shadow portion of Virgo here – procrastination due to perfectionistic tendencies…just saying….

Pluto continues to TRANSFORM our integrity issues around material gain – what is it you FEAR most about receiving materially? Pluto is sending a love line to Jupiter Rx in Virgo where we want to BE of service – Pluto wants all of us to BE emPOWERed by Jupiter’s prosperity influences. Unexpected doors of opportunity will open – walk through them! Don’t hesitate, don’t make excuses – just GO!

Could be an invitation to a party, to coffee conversations, to a referral for other work – we never know what is waiting for us around the next corner unless we MOVE and trust that our intuition knows best! If alarm bells go off – ensure it’s not your Ego-self having a tantrum or is in resistance (i.e. meeting new people in a new place, feeling unsafe etc). Take a deep breath, go anyway – because if anything is really wrong with the situation, all you need do is walk away. As long as we show up, we are taking action and living Life.

Vesta brings forth concentrated focus to create something beautiful for yourself with Pluto and the gang in Virgo! Transform the fears Pluto peels back to uncover, then allow old fears to surface (if any), meet up with those karmic peeps/conditions that trigger old stuff, and WALK through it, BREATHE through it, HEAL IT. Be Not Afraid. I’d like to BE that contented Bull, chewing its cud in the middle of a bright, sunny pasture, laying back with pride, smiling to myself, saying, “How you doin’?” and nodding with relief that I DID IT! This is the Taurus portion of the program – enjoying all my senses, content Within myself that I valued myself enough to show up and create something beautiful that is my Life!

And if, after all this planetary assistance already mentioned above doesn’t help you, well guess what? We have a T-Square to help push up the inner pressure to CHANGE! I love it! Saturn in Sagittarius sits at the apex of this formation, asking us to head forward with Faith and Trust, being responsible for looking for our True Life Purpose, Why Am I Here? Saturn is being squared by, wait for it….none other than the South Node Rx and Chiron in Pisces, both sitting in opposition to…wait for it…Jupiter + Vertex Point + North Node Rx!!! Yay! If you think you’ll dodge that Earth Grand Trine bringing forth karmic healing, think again! LOL! We all have a wee see-saw effect going on between the Pisces peeps and the Virgo peeps.

Sand Castles anyone!?

“Will I run BACK into my addictions/escapism/denial tendencies, do the Drama of Old (South Node)  that feels SO FAMILIAR, and deny being HEALED (Chiron)? Will I run forward INTO that karmic situation, see those human peeps I used to know/work for or with, hear what they have to say (and say what I needed to say yet didn’t?) no matter how prepared I may NOT be (remember that procrastination/perfectionism thingy). OR….will I DO BOTH and create an ‘AND’ here?” Having a Fire New Moon cycle means double-quick time and timing folks! What used to take us years or even decades to work through, can be done in almost nanoseconds now, I kid you not! BELIEVE and it will BE True!

This T-Square brings MUCHO Inner Stress and Tension to create CHANGE! Enjoy! Take Action to Let GO of the past/old trauma/issues AND move forward through whatever karmic situation presents itself – tis a test don’t you know? Walk throught it, breathe, love it, forgive and move along to that next door of opportunity that’s a-knocking!

Blessed BE!
