New Moon in Capricorn: Taking Care of Business…

dsc05266The New Moon phase, initiating this current Moon cycle, began at 11:53p MST on December 28, 2016 at 07 degrees of Capricorn 59′ (aka 08 degrees of Capricorn). Mercury was (and still is) in Rx (Retrograde) also in Capricorn (06 degrees and 47′) creating a team environment to MINDFULLY (Mercury) work towards communicating (with others and within Self) our respective goals towards any or all  of the following:

  • Material Gain: mindfully, what does this concept mean to you? How do you DO material gain in your life? Pluto has been travelling through Capricorn since 2007/08 transforming how the world views and interacts with our material world. How has Pluto transformed this within your world? For example: job loss, debt, floods or hurricanes/tornados taking your home, death of loved ones – any or all of these occurrences forces us to rethink our material needs. Erases/eradicates former value systems we used to cling to. Where are you now with all of this? How do you now gain, materially? As in physically being able to put your hands onto something tangible. Do you NEED lots of tangible, or not as much as before?
  • Attaining Greater Heights: Capricorn’s glyph depicts the horn of the Mountain Goat or the tail of the Sea-Goat. The Sea-Goat climbed up from the oceans, to be on land (earth/tangible) and now climbs whatever mountain it is on. Goals move us forward into evolution of our respective lives. What is your goal for 2017? Is it the same material one you held dear in 2016? Has it changed? How has it changed? Do you see the new path forward/upward? What do you need for your journey and new path (that is, at the same time, ON your evolutionary path forward at this time)? Do you need to climb a totally different mountain compared to the one you were on in 2016?
  • Responsibilities: here’s the crux of the Capricorn energy – What am I responsible for in my life? AND (!) What am I NOT responsible for? Some of you may be so responsible for others that you are NOT being responsible for YOU and your life! Be honest here – check on your own motives. Saturn rules this Moon cycle and Capricorn – Saturn rules our fears. Currently, Saturn has been travelling through the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius – seeking our higher truth of Why am I here? What IS my purpose? What fears are manifesting for you that are blocking your forward and upward movement up your own path, on your mountain? Too many responsibilities you deem more important than living your own life for you? Excuses…Ego-Self delusions/illusions? Here is where we can stay stuck and plateau out – stay stagnant and not move forward in our own life.
  • Authority Figures: Saturn/Capricorn rule the masculine/father-figure types. How is your own Inner masculine taking a stance on what you are already an authority of? We all have something that we are really really good at. Can you mentor someone else with your wisdom and experience? Share knowledge with other authority figures? Partner with someone whose wisdom/experience dovetails with your own, creating a totally NEW (so Capricorn!) resource or service that the world needs now?
  • Structure: Capricorn is all about business, CEO-mindsets, the traditional organizations and institutions we’ve known for over 2,000 years! Pluto’s transit through Capricorn these past 8 years shows the cracks and even disintegration of the structures of many businesses and practices we took for granted until now. Look at Alberta – money Ontario (and our federal government) took for granted all these decades from our oil and gas industry has dried up and then some for the last 2.5 years – and the high numbers of us unemployed in Alberta and especially in Calgary, ever since! Integrity plays a key role. What new business practices, that embrace what is right and just for the good of all, are required now, for a better future? These industries and companies wouldn’t be dying unless change is truly required – this is the transformation Pluto brings to the table! Change or die. Bringing it down to the personal level: where is Capricorn in your chart? This is the area of your life where change that is required – what you’ve been doing over and over until now, if it hasn’t been successful – change it! Drop it! Move on to another path/tack!
  • Physically, Capricorn rules the skeletal structure, the knees, teeth and skin. If any of these physical aspects have been ‘speaking to you’ aka in pain, broken, or full of rashes – something Within you is trying to gain your attention! Listen! Take note! One of my favourite books, “The Secret Language of Your Body” by Inna Segal, tells us possible contributions emotionally/mentally that can be creating said pain, breaks or rashes in the physical body. If we’ve been ignoring our thoughts and feelings up until now, the last place they imbed themselves into is our physical body. How LOUD does it have to get before you stop and listen and do something about it? And taking on too much responsibility, feeling overwhelmed and lost – these all can contribute to creating possible physical ailments, over time, if we’re not dealing with it in the Now moment.

dsc05242We’ve been in the Crescent Moon phase since January 1st at 9:20p MST at 26 degrees of Aquarius 57′ – this phase brings a crisis of ‘seeing’ something from Within the Darkness of our Ego-Self that needs to be brought into the Light (which we’ll understand more fully by Full Moon). Aquarius rules being authentic, original and futuristic. Connecting with our Future Self. Those ‘bright ideas’ and innovative plans/motives. What aspect of your Future Self is your Ego-Self totally afraid to let into the Light of your Life? Where is Aquarius in your chart? This is where your true authentic self wants to THRIVE! Your Ego-Self may be blocking it from shining brightly. Why? There is a struggle here between the Old and the New – the New wants entry, the Old wants to hold it back to keep the same old, same old. Which will win?

The 1st QTR Moon phase begins January 5th at 12:48p MST at 15 degrees of Aries 40′ – another cardinal sign (initiating the new) in the element of FIRE – spiritual inspiration to CREATE something new in your life! Yay! The Crisis comes when you must take some sort of ACTION – of whatever it is you saw for yourself within the Crescent Moon phase. Question is: will you or won’t you? Take action?

dsc05278Tracking Venus’ journey of regaining all the Vestments she let go of from September 2015 until March 2016 – as of January 2nd, 2017, at 29 degrees of Aquarius, via our 3rd Eye or Brow Chakra – our Inner Seeing aspect of Self – we are regaining our Royal Staff. How are you walking WITH your intuition these days? Your ability to ‘see’ beyond the physical? To connect with your Inner Future Self and allow those innovative bright ideas into the Light of Today? What were you afraid of embracing until now? Think back to 2015/2016 – can you now see your courage and stamina, and all fears you have since let go of?

Mercury Rx in Capricorn has helped us to ‘take care of our own business’ by changing our minds about something that we thought was key prior to the beginning of December. Now with this New Moon cycle in Capricorn (both the Moon and Sun working together) our emotional/feminine and active/masculine parts of ourselves are also being called upon to FEEL and INTUIT new avenues of business for ourselves – AND to take ACTION upon them. Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign – initiating the new, using current resources in new ways. Create something new AND tangible. Capricorn always reminds me of Beaver – creating new houses out of current resources (trees) as needed. We don’t need to throw out the baby with the bathwater! Or reinvent the wheel! What does YOUR Life need, now, to be revitalized and evolved into a higher state?

What are your current resources? What do you need to create, now, for your future self and life? How will Venus, our Desire Body, bring forth those true desires as you carry your Royal Staff? Is it a walking stick to use on your new path forward/upward? Or is it a stick you beat yourself (or others) up with? Is it a leadership staff, heralding the wisdom/knowledge you have to share with other leaders, mentor others or be a leader yourself? Perhaps for the very first time, ever? Yikes!

dsc05256Look at what’s blocking your way forward/upward. Don’t try to go around it or avoid it. The more you do so, the bigger it becomes! Try embracing the thing you fear most and move through it – walk through it – don’t run and hide! Courage comes to those who breathe, take a stance, and envision a better, wiser and more loving aspect of Self. Take care of your own business – and do it now!

Blessed BE and Namaste!

HeartFULL Connection INto the New Age of Aquarius Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse!

At 3:26a MDT, Thursday, August 18, 2016 we begin what will be the ‘Season of Eclipses’ – three between tomorrow and September 16th!

Mt Lorette Ponds2After this Summer that I call the “Storm of Storms!” with all the water raining down around us, multiple times a day, with or without the thunderstorms, almost every day (!!) we reach this Lunar Eclipse (meaning Eclipse of the Moon) during the Full Moon (it’s ALL about EMOTIONS aka water) at 25 degrees Aquarius 51′ – and in turn, the Sun sits opposite at 25 degrees Leo 51′.

We have a Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse + Grand Trine in Water signs – that’s a whole lot of water aka emotional baggage to contend with! If any of you have been shedding your fair share of tears already this week – you are in good company! Shed away – the more the better – as we ALL ready our Heart Chakras and Emotional Bodies to embrace and connect more truly, heartfully, with this New Age of Aquarius.

In order to open the heart fully to EMBRACE the New Age, we must, at the same time, RELEASE THE OLD, to make room for this New Age. What are we releasing exactly? Look back to August 2nd’s New Moon in LEO – the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse REFLECTS the Light of that Sun/Moon combo of 16 days ago – Illuminating ALL of what we had hid away in our respective hearts that was more Dark than Light. What was so Dark Within your heart, that now is being shed (via tears, forgiveness etc.) to HEAL your heart, be Let Go, to make room for the New?

In order to operate fully, balanced, within the New Age of Aquarius, we MUST connect to, and engage with, the opposite sign, LEO, which rules the heart, spine and back within the physical body. Without Heart, how can we love Self and Others? Without a Spine, how can we Stand UP for what we FEEL is right and true? Without a Back-bone, how can we BRAVELY move forward?

It may seem as if you’ve been operating WITHOUT a heart, up until now. As if it was displaced somehow, outside of Self and your physical body. This Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon gives all of us the opportunity to bring it BACK into the physical body, into the Heart Chakra, to Love Self, more fully. Then be able to Love our Fellow Man/Woman/Child.

Mt Lorette Ponds3

Mt Lorette Ponds 2016

Go ahead and cry, do your watershed moment(s) – as much as your Soul requires, squeeze out every last drop of regret, shame, anger, loss, resentments, worthiness issues – you name it and do it. The more we Let Go, emotionally, now, the Better we’ll be connected Heartfully TO Self, and then, With Others. Heartbeat to Heartbeat yes, yet essentially it is more of an ESSENCE of Love – that current that has always been there, yet somehow we’ve been unable to access it, let alone BE it.

Yes, Aquarius can be known to BE Unemotionally Involved/Attached etc – but in this Eclipse the emotional/feeling connection is there, believe me. The Moon in Aquarius brings forth the awareness of what may be lacking…and what we are all searching for, outside of Self. Self needs the Love, Nourishment, and Acknowledgement, from Within. From YOU, to YOU. Then Self can be there with Others, equally well. We must fill our own Inner Well of feeling/emotion that is Heart and Love, first, before we give any of it to Others. ‘Tis similar to running your car on empty – how far down the road will you be able to travel on fumes? And what further damage will occur along the way in doing so? Fill YOURSELF UP!

This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse also brings in a YOD, Finger of God, formation pointing TO Mars + Vertex (something this way Destined/Fated comes!) + Saturn in the early degrees of Sagittarius (Seeking Our Higher Truth/Life Purpose). Mars wants to take Assertive Action of some kind, while Saturn, the Authority Figure BEing responsible (or not), needs some long-term goals to move towards. Or from. Are/were there any authority figure(s) in your life that need Forgiveness, Heartfully, for You to move on from?

Every YOD brings in opportunity to HEAL Old Patterns of Conditioning in some regard. The two Feminine Asteroids who are assisting us to do so are:

  • Vesta, in Cancer – the most sensitive water sign, Cancer represents the Mother, Family, Nurturance and can be Possessive, not wanting to LET GO in some regard. Vesta, the brightest of the Asteroids, brings forth concentrated focus, and she rules the Home/Hearth Fire. She represents the flame that BURNS AWAY the non-essentials, leaving only that which is pure (according to Jim Maynard’s Celestial Guide 2016). We can use her energy to focus on this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse task to heal an old pattern re: HOW we do nurturance within the Family. As we do so, we may send Love and Forgiveness UP to the Finger of this YOD, to Saturn – representing a parent, a boss, or other authority figure in your life – that you haven’t been HEARTFULLY able to do before now. And with Mars Up There too – extra energy to TAKE ACTION on this wee gift of Self Growth.
  • Ceres in Taurus – the mutable, sensuous (Full of our Senses/Senses ARE Full) earth sign, Taurus can be as Stubborn as a Bull (!!) with resistance to CHANGE – OR will take the Bull by the Horns (!!) to get this job done! Your choice, as always. Ceres, the largest of the Asteroids, known for ruling agriculture, the harvest and abundance of the land, indicates HOW we received NURTURANCE as a child/our capacity to NURTURE now as adults…just saying…has anything changed for you since you were a child?
  • Can you ‘see’ how both Vesta and Ceres, as they LET GO of old resentments/grudges against a parent or whomever that didn’t NURTURE us the way we expected (they did the best they could with the Heart that they had), we in turn heal our Hearts, allow FORGIVENESS to heal ME and YOU/THEM along the way, AND create more LOVE in the world (and Beyond)?! AND, create more ROOM for nurturance of Self, then Others – and on and on it goes…and grows!
  • AND, Ceres and Vesta learn to work together too. Vesta can get so caught up in the DOING of a task, she can forget to come up for air and BE with her loved ones. Ceres assists with the Caretaking/CareGIVING portion of the program. SO, when Ceres heals her end of the Old Pattern of Conditioning with the Parent/Authority figure in question in your life, AND Vesta heals her issues, then TOGETHER they create a NEW way, Within YOU, to nurture, YOU! A Win-Win, eh?

Violets, Cedar Villa Extendicare 2016

Interestingly, the Water Grand Trine in this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, connects VESTA in Cancer with the South Node/Neptune (both Rx – retrograde – therefore PERSONALIZING IT ALL, making you a wee bit sensitive about it) in Pisces, with JUNO in Scorpio. More watershed opportunity to Let Go of the Past (via the Dragon’s Tail aka South Node swishing away the OLD from this Lifetime or Past Lives that still seem to playing themselves out in your current life) AND Dissolving Idealized relationships (Neptune) or whatever YOUR particular Illusion/Delusion has been that you’ve been carrying around like an old doll or blankie as a pseudo-nurturance crutch, creating all sorts of Drama for the Ego-Self…as in a barrier to ALLOW further nurturance/Love into your life, because “I was hurt before so I’m NOT going to allow it to happen again!” or thoughts along that line…

Mars also represents the men in our lives. Could be a Father-figure, an actual partner you’ve had, someone who had a major impact in your life. The Vertex (Vx) brings something Fated/Destined your way. All in the timing folks! Divinely or otherwise…I like to take advantage of ALL Astrological opportunities that come my way, to help ME Heal ME, as much as possible. I invite each of you to do the same. And as always, it is your choice to do so.

Let me Think on That

Let Me Think on That…

Did I mention that what we DO mindfully, with the Heartfelt Feelings/Intuition of any Lunar Eclipse has an impact on our lives for the next 3.5 years down the road? Again, why I love Astrology – applies a wee nudge in the right direction (Sun/Soul) to honour the Emotional Body (Moon), follow your INtuition, and FEEL your way forward – however that looks and feels for YOU. Always, in All Ways.

Blessed BE!

THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO: My Dad, Ernie Rezanoff. His birthday was August 21st, and the day we held his ‘Celebration of Life’ 2 years ago. I’ve used this watershed timing to help HEAL my relationship with my ‘Father Figure’ this week. Huge shifts for me. Thanks Dad, for this gift, for your Love, and I miss you! xoxoxoxo

Gibbous Moon in Capricorn…And YOD Activation…

Mt Lorette PondsToday at 12:11p the Moon moves into the Gibbous Moon phase, at 07 degrees Capricorn 22′. By this time of the Moon cycle we are evaluating our Inner Growth progress/process – what do you CONSCIOUSLY know about yourself that you didn’t before, since the August 2nd New Moon in Leo? Heartfully, where are you?

Capricorn brings us to a cross-roads of sorts: do I stay the course I have been on OR do I head upon a higher, more challenging, yet fulfilling pathway? Where are you at? What Higher Ambition are you seeking for further Inner Fulfillment?

Capricorn asks us to set forth some goals towards long-term plans that may not show fruition soon. Can you stay the course? Do you have faith and the wisdom to commit? And there is that portion of Capricorn that looks for the material gain here – what will you be GAINING if you stay where you are vs. moving higher up along a new path?

The other item of note today: At the New Moon there was a YOD, or Finger of God formation pointing directly at the Moon/Sun position in Leo August 2nd. The two planets that create the base of this formation are:

  • Pluto, Rx (retrograde) at 15 degrees Capricorn – the Great Transformer of all things power/control/greed into EMPOWERMENT for Self and Others – aka a win-win situation all the way round. Pluto comes by to peel back the carpet of whatever our Ego/brain has been hiding underneath re: fears of moving forward, for whatever reason, excuse, piece of denial it can seek until this moment in time.
  • Neptune Rx at 11 degrees Pisces – She dissolves issues of illusion/delusion we may possibly have – especially if we still have shards of connection to that Drama Triangle from the Old Age of Pisces (victim-rescue me-bully + Martyrdom). All the excuses our Ego/brain can IMAGINE to stir up MORE fears to do otherwise…If we choose to do so, we can IMAGINE BETTER, MORE, and EASE & GRACE for ourselves. We can! Change the perspective…easy peasy!
  • South Node Rx at 12 degrees Pisces – Holding hands with Neptune Rx, the South Node or Dragon’s Tail also brings us a CHOICE: Do I choose to allow that Dragon’s Tail to swish away ALL the PAST ways of how I’ve dealt with that Drama Triangle AND choose to IMAGINE Better, More, with Ease & Grace etc for myself? AND bring forth ALL the GEMS of what still works from the Old Age of Pisces (faith, connection to Spirit/God/Light of All whatever you name it) with the  inner knowing that I am supported, guided and will NOT Fall/Fail on a Higher Path into the Unknown of what is my Destiny (because we really don’t know how it will all work out – and may be pleasantly surprised to SEE MORE/BETTER/HIGHER – far beyond our own creative imaginings)! OR, just stay the course, do the same old/same old things, like we’ve been doing over and over and over again for How Many Lifetimes Now? Your choice.

Indian Paintbrush, Mt Lorette Ponds 2016

Between today and just prior to the August 21st Disseminating Moon phase in Aries, therefore through the Full Moon in Aquarius (I will write a post separately for this phase) we will ALL be struggling in some regard with:

  • Pluto Rx in Capricorn letting GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning re: choosing HEART (Leo) vs. GAIN (Capricorn) AND Heartfully Gaining in the Process. What would happen if you LEAD from your Heart’s Desires towards Material Gain, without Power/Control issues leading the way? What are your Old Patterns of Conditioning in this regard? You will soon find out…
  • Neptune Rx with South Node Rx in Pisces letting GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning to HEARTFULLY have FAITH in your Higher Creative Self/Intuition/Inner Knowing of Listening Inside yourself (meditation/mantras/BEing in silence with yourself) that Following the Heart’s True Desires WILL Manifest Greater rewards in your life- and it all begins with your IMAGINATION – what can you enVISION that is MORE/BETTER/HIGHER for your Life now? Without judgement, or fear, or scoffing at the very idea?
  • While we all undergo this process, guess what also happens? Pluto Rx in Capricorn learns to WORK WITH Neptune Rx + South Node Rx in Pisces! We create an AND in some regard, Within Self, that hasn’t been forged before now. A new skill, way of coping that hasn’t seen the Light of Day. Cool! Aren’t you excited to ‘see’ how this is all going to come out? I am!
Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks at Cedars Villa Extendicare 2016

The Full Moon in Aquarius will ILLUMINATE any issues that still need to be addressed within that phase/during that phase – so a HUGE wakeup call for some of us, in some regard, as to HOW we’ve been ignoring our Heart’s True Desires. Perhaps you’ll realize what IS your Heart’s True Desire for the very first time this lifetime! And, Aquarius represents THIS New Age of Aquarius – and Leo (New Moon) IS the opposite sign to Aquarius.

My question to all of you: How will you navigate forward through these early days of the New Age of Aquarius if you DO NOT have Heart? If you do NOT have FAITH? If you do NOT have GOALS to imagine and move towards? Heartfully? Truly. Really.

Best of luck to you all on this interesting next piece of the Journey this Moon cycle has in store for you. And remember: what we manage to CREATE, HEARTFULLY during this Moon cycle sets us up for the September Eclipses! Energy of change that has influence in our lives for up to 3.5 years into the future!

Also: Mercury will be assisting all of us with how we are MINDFULLY deciding what truly works re: our daily work/BEing of Service out in the world, and the health processes of our physical bodies. If we don’t have our health, how High can we Climb to Higher Heights on our Upward, Evolving Life/Soul Paths? No matter what age you are now – where do you FEEL you need to head toward now? How HIGH do you wish to climb?

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Gemini…

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

September 2015 Rainbow

September 2015 Rainbow

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

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

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

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

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

September 18, 2015 Roses still!

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

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

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

Oct 9, 2015 Okotoks, AB

Oct 9, 2015 Okotoks, AB

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

Blessed BE!

11:11:11 Cosmic Portal…

Ancient Egypt Star Chart

Ancient Egypt Star Chart

Today at 11:11:11a MST we embark on yet another “portal” moment. That is to say we will experience another Cosmic download of codes and information via the Galactic Centre (located at 27 degrees Sagittarius 04′). Look to see where this is located in your birth chart. This is the area of your life where you receive inSPIRation from Above!

Eris currently sits at 22 degrees Sagittarius 36′, therefore has a love-line connection to the Galactic Centre (and has had for quite a while now). From my previous post, Eris is the sister to Mars, a Warrior Princess who fights for equality, no matter what! In the cardinal fire sign of Aries, she burns with courage and assertiveness. The Shadow side to Aries is impatience, anger, looking at the world according to ME, only. We can become addicted to extreme sports or any venture that takes us out of our comfort zone for the long term. This is where the UNequalization comes into play.

It is extremely important to BE your true authentic Self, however, you are NOT an island! The key theme of Aquarius (and the Age of Aquarius) is to BE your own individual whilst BEing in community! You interact and assist Others as Others interact and assist You along each other’s journey here on Earth. This is the humanitarian piece that is Aquarius. “No man is an island” is truth.

September Still Flowering!

September Still Flowering!

That Yod, or Finger of God, planetary formation I spoke about in the previous post also applies here. The point of the Finger IS Uranus Rx in Aries. A word of caution then, to remind all of us that WE can BE truly authentic, ME, independent, individualistic AND intra-dependent, part of a WE (or group of WEs) AND bring our individualism to the table when with Others. Always and in All Ways – loving Self and Others EQUALLY well. This is the journey now. This is the challenge.

The South Node continues to hold onto that last wee bit of Aries for this New Moon cycle and 11:11:11 portal timing. Here we bring habits and experience already experienced from earlier this lifetime, and past lifetimes. We also bring UNRESOLVED issues from our past! Remember this. The need to BE combative just because we can is not the goal here. Sitting at 00 degrees, the South Node reminds us we CAN do this in a NEW way folks!

Today, while we remember those who have fallen before us, also remember what that Warrior Spirit can wield in our world today: the extreme BEing senseless wars because someone wants what they want, and NOW, and MY WAY ONLY, rather than looking for powerful, loving ways to meet in the middle, find common ground, and learn to live WITH one another, heartfully (Leo’s position in this New Age of Aquarius).

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Scorpio, November 11th..

Wednesday, November 11th is Remembrance Day for most Western countries. At 11:00 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month we’ve been remembering all those loved ones who fought and died for our freedoms since 1918, the end of the Great War. My paternal Great-Grandfather Jesse Robinson was gassed in that war and lived 94 years before he passed on. He worked as a guard for an internment camp here in Canada during the Second World War. There also were brothers of my Great-Grandmother Rose Robinson (nee Candy) who fought in WWI, one of whom died as a POW.

My paternal Grandfather, Bruce Schwager, worked in Thomasburg, ON, Canada as a mechanic, repairing all the planes that flew from Canada during WWII. I recently received two of his photo albums full of pictures he collected or took himself of the planes they worked on and the barracks he lived in.  And Mom’s elder brother, Vernon Schwager, was a Canadian Navy officer, first working on submarines on the East coast, and ended his career at CFB Esquimalt, Vancouver Island, BC as a commanding officer. They will be remembered with love.

The same day, just 12′ prior to the 11th hour, we begin another New Moon cycle, in Scorpio. At 10:48a MST, both the Moon and Sun will sit together in the sky at 19 degrees of Scorpio 01′. They are joined by Mercury, sitting at 15 degrees of Scorpio 30 minutes. Together they give all of us the opportunity to allow our psychic/intuitive flashes of insight to step up a notch or two this Moon cycle!

Scorpion of Scorpio

Scorpion of Scorpio

Scorpio is the fixed water sign, deeply passionate, its emotional depths can hide many things! It is the most private sign of the Zodiac, and people with a Scorpio Sun, Moon, Rising sign or Midheaven will naturally hold back speaking about themselves until they “trust” it is safe to do so. All of us have Scorpio somewhere in our charts – here is where you may hold back, distrust self and/or others, and deal with ongoing Ego-self fears that can be deep-seated, hidden from view, until the right TIME-ing comes along to pull back the carpet and “see” what’s been holding you back all along!

This Moon cycle also brings a YOD or Finger of God planetary formation pointing to Uranus, Rx, sitting in Aries. Here the theme is “Free To BE ME!” that’s been playing out in all our charts/lives since Uranus entered Aries March 13, 2011 (and will continue through Aries until March 7, 2019). I’ve written before about Eris, one of our newer planets, who has been closely riding along with Uranus for a while now. She adds and brings in the “apple of discord” into the mix, whereby adding to the Uranus “Expect the Unexpected” quality! Eris wants to bring harmony and peace into the equation, and being sister to Mars, she will do battle if necessary to stand her ground for the good of all. Just when you thought Life was hunky-dorry, peachy-keen, here comes Eris with her apple, to show us how our life is NOT as harmonious and peaceful as it COULD BE. Read on…

Together, Uranus and Eris are rising to the fore to equalize the following:

  1. BEing our True Authentic Selves – each of us are shedding the coats we’ve been wearing during, and since, the Old Age of Pisces in order to reveal to ourselves (and others) WHO we truly ARE in this Age of Aquarius – and ruled by Uranus! Unexpected events in our lives (and the world) over the last several years have been instrumental in that skin-shedding process. Not only are we BEing asked to BE REAL, we are also embodying our Spiritual/Soul selves for the first time, ever! Guess what House Aries rules? The 1st House of our self-identity AND physical body…need I say more? I love Astrological timing…always on time, in all ways!
  2. Gender-Roles as Feminine and Masculine – here deep within us, and AS a female or male on the outside, we all carry a mix of divine feminine power energy and divine masculine power energy. This “power” has nothing to do with “power and control” of Pluto/Scorpio and the 8th House they rule. This “power” is the Inner Knowingness of How to Receive (feminine) and When to Act (masculine) and HOW. This is what we’ve been learning about for eons. Lifetime after lifetime, as a female or male human BEing, we’ve been learning to BE comfortable in our own skins, JUST as a female or male. NOW Eris comes along, sending in her “apple of discord” to help us notice WHAT needs to change deep within to BALANCE out the inner genders in order to BALANCE out the outer traditional gender-roles we’ve known for o so long now. We are learning to BLEND our Inner feminine/masculine selves to BE one, in balance and equality.
Yod, Finger of God, Example only

Yod, Finger of God, Example only

Let’s return to that Yod formation. Uranus is the point of the Finger of God. Who’s at the base? We usually just have two planets, but because we are special (!!) THIS time there are FOUR! They are:

  • The NEW MOON! Aka the Moon and Sun, in Scorpio, bring in the emotional baggage (Moon) and shine a Light on this Moon cycle’s subject – TRUST – (via the Sun) – together assisting us all to LET GO and heal whatever Ego-self fears we’re still hanging onto that block us from Loving self and others unconditionally via TRUST. Not emotional blackmail, nor manipulation to “get what I want when I want it!” (Ego-self). More of TRUST, passion, depth of BEing, connecting to our psychic/intuitional self!
  • Mercury! Also in Scorpio, he brings our mindset, how we learn, how we communicate what we learn, how we share our knowledge, etc. Interestingly, this Moon cycle will REVEAL that which has been HIDDEN, up until now, That which we’ve not trusted self to reveal to others, out loud, in print/email/text. This is going to be quite an interesting ride, no? Remember: whatever has been HIDDEN, can mean hidden from SELF too! We will be unveiling, uncovering, recovering some aspect of Self that has been deeply buried due to past traumas/hurts this lifetime or in past lifetimes! Cool! I love past life work! I work with it all the time.
  • Last and not least, is Jupiter! In the mutable earth sign of Virgo – amplifying and expanding our usual boundaries re: HOW we wish to BE of service right now. Jupiter’s been working on all of us through this sign since August 12th, bringing LOUD signals and situations to our attention as to what IS working and what is NOT working in our lives re: BEing of service. Raise your hands if you’ve lost your job since August? Or been out of work for more than a year? Or your industry has just died (autocad work) or is in its death-throes (oil & gas)? What signs and signals have been waving their hands to get your attention re: your daily work AND how you deal with the health of your physical body? Hhhhmmm….any physical ailments talking to you of late? Just saying…

Okay, now let’s put this Yod formation together. The apex, or pointing Finger, is Uranus who is Rx (retrograde) at the moment. So his energy dives deeply to encourage inner growth to heal something we’ve been afraid to deal with, very personally. Uranus encourages authentic individuation – how do I BE my most authentic ME? Not sometimes, all the time? Look back to March of 2011 – how have YOU changed? Are you more YOU now than you were then? Take stock on this for a moment…

BEing in the cardinal fire sign of Aries – instinctual, acting before thinking, being natural in the physical body, all about ME, myself and I, your Inner Warrior, and Explorer that is curious enough to walk along new Inner Roads of Self. Assertive Action or Aggressive Action? Hhhmmm…there is a difference?

Now let’s look at how the Moon/Sun/Mercury in Scorpio connect with Jupiter first, then we’ll discuss how these four amigos must work together to allow old patterns of conditioning to be let go of in order to give Uranus Rx the energy he needs to BE more ME within ME. See?

The connection between the Moon/Sun/Mercury and Jupiter is called a sextile – a mini-love line asking the four amigos to work together as a team, if they haven’t learned to before now. So, emotionally (Moon) how am I feeling, and soulfully (Sun) what action do I wish to take, and mentally/mindfully (Mercury) what thoughts and words do I think/speak (AND TRUST that it is all okay to feel, act, think, speak let alone share any of this!) in order to expand and amplify (Jupiter) beyond my usual boundaries I’ve put in place before now, re: the daily work I do for others and for my physical body?

Overwhelmed yet? LOL! This Moon cycle will assist ALL of us to re-connect with our PASSION for Life, Living, Connecting, Networking, Working, Health, rather than disTRUST, misTRUST Self and/or Others! How many of you LISTEN TO and TAKE ACTION upon your Intuition? BE honest now….no matter how illogical, crazy or whatever you judge those insights to BE, they are being sent to you via your Higher Self/Spiritual aspect of YOU. Higher Wisdom, Eternal Wisdom – and you are dissing it? Hhhhmmm…

Beach Estates Park, March 2012

Beach Estates Park, March 2012

The mix of a fixed water sign with a mutable earth sign can bring MUD (water + earth mixed together) or a standstill. Aka Ego-self resistance, BIG TIME! Fixed signs are slow to change, if ever. They are also focused and able to deal with the details, and in the case of Scorpio, ALL the details it can get its hands on! LOL! Anyone know a Scorpio who can tell a short story? I laugh at myself because I have most of Scorpio in my 3rd House of communication – how many short posts of mine have you read?

Here we can get bogged down by TOO MANY details, loosing sight of the Big Picture of “what was I working on, thinking about, about to do again?” And then emotionally connect with the Ego-self’s fears to boot! Yikes! Then the earth of Virgo – needing things to BE perfect – then I’ll get it completed and handed in! Delay tactics on the part of whom again? O yes, Ego-self…

So you see how the mini-love line between all these planets may have some issues to agree to work TOGETHER? Once they DO, wonderful things will emerge this Moon cycle for you! You’ll be able to ‘see’ via your intuition or thought processes NEW directions, original thoughts (Uranus) that you never imagined before now, re: work, health, Life, etc. Yay!

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Bottom Line: get out of your own way, with LOTS and I mean LOTS of love! Love your Ego-self to death if you need to (but don’t kill it completely because we cannot live without our Ego-self down here on Earth). The more you LOVE whatever comes up for you this Moon cycle, the MORE you feed Uranus Rx in Aries – your true authentic self will show up! Yay! And rise above whatever has been holding you back before now. Uranus has been in Aries long enough for all of us to sip from the cup of courage (Aries) and BE courageous! NOW is the time to TRUST that yep, I am ready! Yep, I will take a risk and a leap of faith and Dare to BE or DO something different than I have given myself permission to do before now….breathe, breathe, breathe!

Also: both Nodes are at 00 degrees of Libra (North Node – direction our Soul beckons us into) and Aries (South Node – where we are used to BEing, or unresolved issues from our past getting in the way NOW….). The 00 degrees = NEW CYCLE – let’s DO it different this time people! Aries is a cardinal fire sign – inSPIRed action from Spirit to create something NEW. Interesting…so wait for your inSPIRation, via your INTUITION, then take ACTION towards your new YOU, LIFE, and WORK!

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Taurus…Part II

I must mention the proliferation of pine cones and fir cones and all cones sprouting on the tops of our evergreen trees here in Calgary! Wow! The squirrels will have a heyday with collecting all those seeds hidden within. Yet another sign from Mother Nature as to how abundant we truly are, now, in this moment, no matter what our outside world says to the contrary!

As of today’s Full Moon in Taurus, those 30 pieces of Silver that got in the way of what Humanity thought to be greed and betrayal almost 2,000 years ago (and occurred in the beginning of the New Age of Pisces) actually symbolized HOW easily we could be led down the path of greed and betrayal via the “Having Power Over” factions in the world then, and even more so, now. What happened to our Faith along the way?

Interestingly, Taurus rules money, how we value it, and value ourselves in the generating of it. This is where we bring in our own skills, talents and experience to the table of work, industry and moving toward creating Beauty in our world.

The Old Age of Pisces represented the Mother and Child (Madonna and Jesus) captioned as “Who Will Look After Us?” In the new Age of Aquarius, we are understanding a new reality: ME and WE at the same time, AND with it the creativity of the child (Leo, the opposite sign to Aquarius) leadership from the heart, and the return to romantic love that leads to more solid unions and partnerships along the way. WE can look after ourselves, and others. We don’t need to wait for “THEM” to do so.

Wee Daisies in October!

Wee Daisies in October!

The Full Moon in Taurus began Tuesday at 6:06a MDT at 03 degrees of Taurus 45’. Where in your chart does this occur? What VALUES are ILLUMINATED today for you? How do you value money? Those 30 pieces of silver – what would you do with them today?

Many religious experts speak only of the betrayal and greed of Judas Iscariot that led to the death of Jesus. What if there is a truth yet to be revealed? Could it be that Judas’ role in the death of Jesus was his Destiny, to begin the process of what was Divinely Ordained to BE? That in order to save Humanity, Jesus had to die. End of. Judas assisted in this – he was Chosen to do so.

Throughout the whole of the Age of Pisces we have collectively lived the Drama Triangle at some length within lifetime(s) in any one, or all, of the positions noted below:

  • BE a Victim, or
  • RESCUE ME, or rescue others, or
  • PERSECUTE ME, or persecute others, only to return to
  • The Victim position and continue the cycle.

In our current culture, we continue to see endless scenarios of this Drama Triangle worked out on TV, in movies and arcade videos. The violence has escalated exponentially. What does all of this have to do with the current Full Moon in Taurus?

Sheep River finds, October 2015

A return to Values, basic down-to-earth values, with Love. Venus rules Taurus, hence the LOVE of beauty, balance, equality, harmony, the arts – all of this has been lost in the shuffle of war, greed and more money please! Pluto’s journey through Capricorn since 2008, plus Uranus through Aries since 2011, and now Neptune in the sign it rules, Pisces, all signal a halt and revamping of our collective programming. ‘Tis time to LOVE all of it, to pieces if need be!

What do YOU value now that economic downturns have upset the status quo? For me, this past week, having crystal clear windows to look out of! Who knew that bringing in a man who loves to see the immediate fruits of his labours (using HIS time-worn 5-step method of window cleaning) could bring me so much joy and pleasure, every day? The VALUE of HIS labours of love have also brought ME pleasure and joy. THIS is what I am talking about.

Awesome Sunset, October 9, 2015

Those 30 pieces of silver symbolize another release from bondage we’ve collectively been in these past 2,000+ years re: HOW we value money, the work we do for it, AND the talents and skills we all bring to the table to create it for ourselves. How many of us are stuck in a RUT of DOing the same old work over and over, unhappy, and then whoosh! Our industry has died out, seemingly overnight? Now what do we DO for work? How have we forgotten ALL that we are and bring to the world of work? We are NOT just one piece of work; we are multi-faceted, always have been! RE-INVENT yourself, continually, now. Get out of that rut of HOW you used to value the work you have done until now. AND, you are never too OLD to do so!

Capricorn and Taurus are both earth signs. Taurus represents the everyday woman/man doing their level best to generate what they value in life. Capricorn represents the boss, owners of businesses who employ others to work for them, creating an even bigger value out in the world for the good of all.

Taurus gets down and dirty in the everyday, looking after the details of DOing the daily bull-work. Capricorn is the bigger picture of career, business, the goals we set for ourselves, our businesses that others may benefit from. Each has its purpose. Pluto is ensuring we wake up to the integrity of it all, since 2008. Re-eVALUating everything along the way.

Same Sunset Sky, different direction

Same Sunset Sky, different direction

Today, this Full Moon in Taurus, we are re-eVALUating our purpose. Could be we return to the basics of life lived, wholesomely, wholistically, and for the good of all. With Jupiter traveling through the other earth sign, Virgo, for the next 10 months, we will see an expansion and amplification of HOW we want to BE of Service, DOing what we value for work, to bring in the money to pay for what we value in our Life. It all goes hand in hand.

As you experience the next several days of this Full Moon phase (until 1:23p MDT October 30th) BE aware of what those 30 pieces of Silver represent for you in your life, for your life. Do you still fear money? Or do you love it? What does money represent to you, now in the New Age of Aquarius? Are you bringing in new innovative original thought and process to it, or using it in the same old same old way? HOW are you embodying Money? Are you LOVING it down to the DNA of your Soul self? Or are you in fear of it, creating debt loads far beyond your ability to pay it off?

This New Moon cycle has been asking all of us to CHANGE in some regard to a key relationship in our collective lives. In between the New Moon phase and the Full Moon phase, we have all experienced, full on, that T-Square of Change. This Full Moon phase brings to us a spotlight of awareness re: the relationship we now have with Money, our Values, and HOW we work to create beauty in the world around us. Each individually (Aries), AND with Others (Libra), EMPOWERING all of us (Pluto in Capricorn) along the way.

BE the change! Who said this originally? Martin Luther King? President Kennedy said it in a similar way during his Inaugural Speech. Do not wait for anyone else to take a stand for VALUES. BE of Value to yourself, in your life and to others’ lives. Sit, as the Taurus Bull does, in your pasture, within the light and warming heat of the Sun, and chew on all of this within the next several days. BE the change you want in the world!

Blessed BE!
