Reveals the "pot of gold" Within YOUR Planetary Cycles

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!

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.

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!

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 Capricorn: How High Will You Climb?

DSC04239Tuesday July 19th at 4:56p MDT the Moon sits opposite the Sun creating the Full Moon. Here the Moon reflects the Unconscious Desires of the Sun – those hidden emotional needs of the Ego-self are revealed – all of which surface just before, during or after the Full Moon – showing you consciously what you’ve been hiding from yourself until this Moon cycle.

We began the New Moon in Cancer on July 4th – enLIGHTening our true emotional natures, at times at odds with the entrenched family generational emotional line – more and more at each Moon phase since. What have you learned about your Emotional Body nature that you weren’t aware of before July 4th?

Some of us are undergoing the latest 21-day Meditation Challenge with Oprah/Deepak Chopra, uncovering hidden blocks to how we sabotage ourselves In The Moment from connecting to our creative self Within, being distracted by our brain/Ego-self to DO something else from the past or worry about the future. Interesting dilemma we humans have created for ourselves to stay STUCK, not moving forward or upward. Stagnant. Bored.

Tuesday’s Full Moon Illuminates upon the Moon sitting at 27 degrees of Capricorn 40′ – where is this in your chart? This is the area of your Life you’ve been unconscious, until now, of how you emotionally connect with your ability to create gainfully within the material world (aka money, things, long-term goals of your Desires). Capricorn, like Cancer, is a Cardinal quality sign – meaning the energy of these signs initiate CHANGE – like the seasons they represent – 00 degrees of Capricorn is the Winter Solstice timing, the beginning of Winter; 00 degrees of Cancer is the Summer Solstice timing, the beginning of Summer. New seasons, new weather (usually) therefore CHANGE.

DSC04507As I look through the 8 phases of this particular Moon cycle, I see that ALL the Cardinal signs are represented AND three of the Mutable signs (going with the flow, taking others into account due to changes in our own lives), with only one Fixed sign (dealing with the details and perhaps stubbornly resisting CHANGE). I conclude from this investigation that this Moon cycle is all about CHANGE AND Going With the Flow of whatever CHANGE we are allowing to come forth within our respective lives. The Last QTR Moon phase is where we’ll perhaps have a bit of stubborn resistance from the Ego-self.

Look back to July 4th – New Moon at 12 degrees Cancer 54′ – what House of Life Experience did the seed of unrealized potential begin to grow CHANGE Within you? What have you learned about yourself these past 2 weeks? Remember: the Moon symbolizes our Emotional Body nature – feelings, emotions, intuition, insights – the Feminine aspects of how we RECEIVE signs and symbols along the way of our respective Life Paths and Purpose.

The Sun, which dances with the Moon every cycle, is about our vital energy principle, the Masculine need to Take Action. This Moon cycle, with all that Cardinal energy wanting to initiate CHANGE, what ACTION to create CHANGE in your Life have you noticed? Or are you ignoring it, yet again?

Tuesday’s Full Moon, in Capricorn, brings these earthly practicalities to the fore:

  • Setting long-term goals towards – what exactly? In your world – what needs to CHANGE for you to acquire recognition, BE SEEN publicly, for what YOU contribute out in the world with your professional talents in tow?
  • Building UP a better foundation of material growth – what does this MEAN to you? What IS Material Growth in your mind? Security, safety, for future dry spells? Land, a home, stuff? Or is it less tangible?
  • BEing Responsible about how your Life is structured, limited, constricted, or allow in change by letting GO of some of the responsibilities you’ve taken on that truly ARE NOT yours to begin with! OR, have you been ignoring some aspects of your Life that as an adult you NEED to finally show up for and BE responsible for your actions, words, deeds, etc?
  • Capricorn is represented as the Mountain Goat – climbing ever higher along its path, perhaps taking paths less travelled or never explored before now. Hence the CHANGE – are you deciding, during tomorrow’s Full Moon, to finally GO UP that path that’s been beckoning you to travel, for how long now? Are you intuitively allowing yourself to SHOW UP, BE SEEN, in the areas of material gain/growth, publicly? Stand UP for what you BELIEVE IN, for YOUR Life Purpose?
  • Creating tangible results – by creating something NEW out of current resources you already possess, utilizing YOUR particular range and brand of talents and skills, that somehow TRANSFORMS (CHANGES) your perspective of how much HIGHER you CAN climb, BEYOND those previously held restrictions/limitations due to Ego-self fears.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn / Father Time / Kronos – hence those long-term goals – no short-cuts please! ‘Tis all about HOW you get there – not what you get in the end. Saturn is currently moving through Sagittarius – mutable Fire sign – BEing out in the world, discovering gems from other cultures that help you discern “Who Am I? Why Am I Here? What is My Purpose?” How is Saturn spiritually INspiring you to SEE your Life Purpose? Do you have blinkers on, blinders, or an open-minded In the Moment connection to your creative self? If you are too busy thinking about What Was, or worrying about WHAT MIGHT BE, how on earth (!!) can you possibly CREATE the NEW in the NOW?

Tomorrow, open your eyes, your heart, and your mind to ALL the NEW possible CHANGES that surround you. Change is all around us, always, in All Ways. If you take the moment to pause, breathe, and BE here while DOing….what will you find?

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!

Full Moon in Taurus…Part I

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

Okotoks, AB Canada October 2015

Okotoks, AB Canada October 2015

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

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

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

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

  • At the apex, or upper point of the T-square, Pluto sits in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn which rules all our traditional trades, institutions and big picture of work (i.e. government, health, education, corporate companies (now global than ever before), construction, insurance, banking – you get the picture) all of what we have relied upon these past 2,000 years at least that will somehow, Take Care of Us. We now take them for granted. “Always been there, haven’t they?” Pluto has been transforming all of these foundational ties to our collective past since 2008 – creating economic downturns all over the world, now finally catching up to we Canadians big time. Causing everyone, from world leaders to the woman/man in the street, to readjust HOW we relate to money, which in turn adds to, or takes away, from our Material Gain goals and dreams (Capricorn). Pluto lifts up the carpet to see what each of us has “swept under the rug” to hide away and not deal with – fears of lack, fear of losing jobs, fears of not being able to make ends meet etc. Ego Fears. Past life fears we brought into this lifetime. Look back these past 7 years of your life – how have you fared? How have you had to readjust to walk through those fears? Pluto also transforms the INTEGRITY of How we’ve been doing business with one another since Christ died. Close to 2,000 years ago now. What have we learned? The daily news tells all. Here and Now, Pluto wishes to bring us EMPOWERMENT vs. power over, married to greed, lusting for more. Power and control struggles have ensued over the centuries, getting louder and louder with each war within countries, between countries and greater world-wide involvement. STOP!
  • Side note here: we Canadians went to the Electoral Polls October 19th (just after the Crescent Moon phase, while the Moon entered Capricorn and activated PLUTO therein!) to elect a new Prime Minister to rule our country. Not only did we vote for a complete  party reversal (we went from 9 years of Conservatism to going Liberal again) AND we hired a young and untried leader! Son of a former Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Similar to the Bush father and son leaders of the USA, or will it be different up here? Time, and integrity, will tell.
  • The New Moon position of this T-square formation began this Moon cycle in Libra, another cardinal sign (in and of itself brings initiating something NEW of DOing or BEing) in Air – how we communicate, socialize, relate to one another via PARTNERSHIPS. All kinds of partnerships out there – from friends, to loved ones, to business and everything in between. Libra, ruled by Venus, brings the Scales of Justice – what can we DO for the good of ALL within this relationship/partnership? The Moon AND Sun began this Moon cycle in Libra – Moon brings the Feminine attributes of receptivity, intuition and feelings. The Sun, Masculine attributes of  taking assertive action, heartfully, soulfully. Within Libra, how well do YOU, as YOU, stand within your relationships and partnerships? Still standing, or lost in the crowd, or long forgotten, or taken for granted?
  • Now we bring in the other end of the opposition that tied itself to the New Moon: Uranus and Eris in Aries, both Rx. We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty! Here is where my favourite Astrology phrase lies. “Free To BE ME!” (aka Uranus in Aries) holding hands with Eris – sister to Mars, warrior/mother/sister, goes to any length (if forced to) to fight for the rights of Self AND Others. Eris brings in a gender-role rebalance, whereby men aren’t the only breadwinners, the only warriors to do battle out in the wider world. Women AND Men equally are being re-worked around the Universal Chess Board of Life to BE Equal Partners, in All Things. “I can fix a car as well as the next guy!” ‘Tisn’t perfected just yet. Uranus rules Aquarius – BE your True Individual Self (aka individuation), a HUMANitarian, AND assist others along THEIR way as THEY assist YOURS.
  • Within a T-square formation, two factions are opposed, bringing in polarization (being at odds with one another) or working together over time to bring compromise, a team, a new partnership. DOing so, in this current scenario, will accumulate a lot of good energy that will push UP to the Pluto in Capricorn position towards EMPOWERMENT – I have power, you have power – we ALL receive that which we are seeking. For the Good of All.
  • A lot of the real work comes from the opposition between what began as our New Moon (October 12th) in Libra with Uranus AND Eris, in Aries (these two Rx). The Rx portion is key here. Deeply-held “ALL ABOUT ME!” issues have been zeroed in upon since Uranus entered Aries (March 13, 2011). Since then, all of us have been learning HOW to still BE ME (my true authentic self coming through Uranus) within a WE (any relationship or partnership we’ve been experiencing ever since). Our WILLINGNESS to BE ME, always and in all ways, yet honour Your “ME” at the same time (I honour Your process of Life as You honour My process of Life and together we can hang with one another until it is just a reason, a season or a lifetime to share with one another). Get it? Four and a half years of change within ME and therefore, our respective WE’s. Some WE’s have weathered the inner storms, some have not. Many have left the planet to assist us from the other side.
Sheep River, Okotoks, AB October 2015

Sheep River, Okotoks, AB October 2015

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

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

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

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

Green in October! Yay!

Green in October! Yay!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Moon in Libra…

Laurie Rae AND her Mermaid Alter Ego Self!

Laurie Rae AND her Mermaid Alter Ego Self!

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

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

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

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

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

Grounded, centred Sacred Feminine Wisdom brings the following abilities:

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

Grounded, centred Sacred Masculine Wisdom brings the following abilities:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

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

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

Blessed BE!

Ch-ch-ch-CHANGES A-Coming…

Change in Direction…

Change in Zodiac Sign….

Change in Elements….

We are experiencing a compliment of planetary change of Direction (from Direct to Retrograde (Rx) or vice versa) which in turn brings us either into a flurry of Activity (Direct motion = action or forward-moving action/flow) OR into a deep inner ‘seeing’ and BEing (Rx motion = going inward, deeply, to connect with ourselves on many levels) personalizing seemingly everything/one we encounter, to bring IN the tests and mirroring effects of our respective Soul journey at this time and place and space.

Our Solar System...

Our Solar System…

Neither the Sun nor Moon ever go Rx – they stay as they are, our luminaries. It takes the Sun a year to travel through the 12 signs of the Zodiac and our Moon one month. All the other planets have their cycles (time it takes for each planet to orbit around the Sun – and your birth chart!) either going Direct AND their times of seemingly Rx motion within those cycles/orbits.

When planets and luminaries (Sun and Moon) move from one sign’s element to another – here also is a change in HOW we use their elemental energies:

  • Moving from Fire to Earth: brings us from quick quick energy and action, to wanting to sit a while or deal with tangible things – hands-on…similar to when we move from Sagittarius to Capricorn just a few days prior to Christmas!
  • Moving from Earth to Air: brings us from those tedious details (housework, homework, work work) of life into socializing, relating, chatting, thinking, writing, gathering information and sharing it with our peeps…
  • Moving from Air to Water: brings us from all that Social Butterfly fluttering about to emotional feelings and intuition – feeling sensitive within and without – wanting to BE a hermit, a home-body, not out and about…
  • Moving from Water to Earth: brings us from all that deeply sensitiveness and feeling our world and way forward, into day-to-day hands-on DOing – chop wood, carry water, mundane aspects of life. And round and round we go as the cycles of Nature, Seasons and Elements continue ever on…

Here is of the list of where our planetary partners are, in their current cycles, as of this post:

  • Sun (Soul self) – is in the cardinal water sign of Cancer (at 28 degrees as of today) about to head into the fixed fire sign of Leo as of July 23rd. Going from water to fire…Wanting to BE seen, having fun, playing, BEing that Inner Child You, plus the romance in your life…
  • Mercury (communication, thought processes, inner talk) went into Cancer as of July 9th, about to go into Leo too, July 23rd too.
  • Venus (our Desire Body – what we Love and Like) moved from Leo into the mutable earth sign of Virgo as of July 19th – I will discuss what Virgo brings to the table later on in this post. And you’ll soon understand why…going from fire to earth..until November 9th.
  • Mars (assertive action) – went into Cancer as of June 25th, and will head into Leo as of August 9th. Moving from water to fire…
  • Jupiter (expansion and amplifying – current boundaries/limits to receive something Greater than we’ve allowed or dreamed before now) will finish it’s year-long journey through Leo as of August 11/12th, also moving into Virgo (going from the open-heart surgery of fire – Leo rules the heart – into mutable earth).
  • Saturn (Life structure, boundaries, responsibilities, goals) was in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius before it went Rx as of March 14th, and then retraced it’s steps BACK into the fixed water sign of Scorpio as of June 16th, sitting @ 29 degrees for several weeks, bringing us BACK into LETTING GO (29th degree) of those last vestiges of deeply-held Ego-self FEARS we are all still hanging onto. Saturn will go Direct again August 2nd (cross-quarter feast day of Lammas or Lughnasadh) heading back over the 28/29 degrees of Scorpio, to once again enter Sagittarius September 19th.
  • Chiron (healing our Inner Victim to create VICTOR) has been in the mutable water sign of Pisces since February 18, 2011 (until February 16, 2019) went Rx June 24th last month at 21 degrees and will remain Rx until November 28th when it goes Direct again at 16 degrees of Pisces. Ask yourselves this: how often have you dipped BACK into Victim rather than Victor stance emotionally? Escaping into your addictions to BE in denial, distract yourself to NOT uplift your Inner Victor self, to indulge your Inner Victim instead? Just asking…
  • Uranus (individuality, futuristic insights, Future Self) has been in the cardinal fire sign of Aries since March 13, 2011 (until March 7, 2019) and will once again go Rx as of July 26th @ 20 degrees of Aries. Remember, Uranus and Pluto were squaring each other SEVEN times since June 2012, until their last round: March 15th, 2015, bringing us all closer to BE FREE TO BE ME (Uranus in Aries) AND changes in the INTEGRITY of our respective pursuits of MATERIAL GAIN in life now. This Rx timing (lasts until December 26th when it goes Direct once again) will bring us Deeper Inwardly to REFLECT upon how well we have traveled upon our Future path towards integrity AND individuation – BEing our True Authentic Selves as much as possible, than ever before now….
  • Neptune (illusion, delusion, fantasy AND the reality of Life beyond the physical – Spiritual and Divine Self) has been in its own sign, mutable water sign of Pisces, since April 5, 2011 (until January 27, 2026) for the first time in 165 years! She went Rx again as of June 12th @ 9 degrees of Pisces and will go Direct as of November 18th @ 7 degrees. We’ve been grappling with WHERE we are still hanging onto that Drama Triangle of Victim or Rescue Me/Rescuer or Persecutor/Persecuted (a combo of each or all three!) emotionally. Pisces asks us all to TRANSCEND our Ego-self, master it, in order to give that Eternal part of ourselves, the Soul, more reign.
  • Pluto (Transforming our deeply hidden Ego-self Fears of change/trauma into healing Love) has been in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn since November 28, 2008 (until November 20, 2024) and turned Rx again April 17th @ 15 degrees, turning Direct once more September 25th @ 12 degrees. Here we are inwardly transforming HOW we do our goals and build material gain in our lives – and with Pluto therein, ‘seeing’ and healing the Ego-self fears to LET GO of ALL power and control issues (As Within, So Without). As we clean our Inner House, we ‘see’ magic happen in our Outside World with more positive and equal-footing partnerships/relationships/work options coming to us.
  • The Moon’s Nodes: the direction our Soul wishes to head into (North Node/Dragon’s Head) AND the direction our Ego is used to living within (from past lives, habits this lifetime – South Node/Dragon’s Tail) are within the first degrees of Libra/Aries, about to enter the last degrees of Virgo/Pisces as of November 12/13th NB: the Nodes move opposite in Zodiac sign direction to the planets). Do you all see a pattern showing itself? We are moving away from the FIRE into the EARTHly realms of Virgo? Read on…
Planetary Orbits...

Planetary Orbits…

I have shown all the details of past/current/upcoming dates of planetary directions AND Zodiac sign changes for a reason. Look BACK at WHEN the outer, longer-orbiting planets entered their respective signs, and ask yourself, “What CHANGES were happening within Me/outside me in my world, then?” AND with all the Directional changes now – how well you have been working in the outside world (Direct Motion) these planets MIRROR for us now; AND within the Rx timings of all these cycles, reflect INWARDLY on that journey, is there anything MORE to heal/change/transform deep within?

In other words: our planetary cycles bring MORE than just a change in sign or a Return to where they were on the day we were born. Their Directional changes also bring CHANGE – or an opportunity to turn things around, to ‘see’ more clearly/deeply that which wasn’t possible before NOW due to needing TIME to grow, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. All levels of our Bodies (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, etheric et al) will BE transformed, healed of trauma/drama at their respective Divine Timing – NOT when our Ego-self wills it to BE! Hence why we feel/think “Haven’t I already dealt with this issue in my life already?” Perhaps not – perhaps THIS TIME it is a physical healing/release whereas BEFORE it was an emotional or mental one for that SAME issue?

Fanny Bay, Vancouver Island, BC - Seals & Boats May 2013

Fanny Bay, Vancouver Island, BC – Seals & Boats May 2013

Notice how we humans have physical health issues, mental health issues, emotional health issues, crisis of the Spirit issues? And like grief/grieving, there are STAGES we undergo – and not consecutively NOR one at a time! When ‘all hell breaks loose!’ think many stages of multiple levels of our collective Bodies undergoing HUGE growth spurt! It feels like hell on wheels at the time; it feels like we’ve been IN it for ever and ever; it feels like it will NEVER end….and then snap! we wake up to sunshine happening Inside AND Outside of ourselves. Why? What happened? How did all that pressure suddenly end? All of the above…all of the above… unending, cycling, continually, in different elements and signs, orbiting endlessly… until we GET IT! Whatever IT is/was/will be…all part of our life-long Journey here on Earth…so the longer we live, the MORE we grow…

We have several planets about to (or already have) enter the mutable earth sign of VIRGO: dealing with the HEALTH of the Physical Body and what we do on a daily basis for work (be it paid or volunteer or hobby). How we wish to BE of SERVICE in our respective worlds. The opposite sign of Virgo is PISCES – BEing of SERVICE beyond This World – spiritually, divinely. These next weeks and months will bring ALL of us insights, upsets, knowingness, intuitive hits of next action – ALL related to our Physical Body and how we WORK this Body and are in Service to its health! What past traumas of your life need to BE released from your Physical Body? What will you learn about the health and healing of it?

Virgo also brings us closer to PERFECTION – what this means to you, and how PERFECTION can get in the way of you moving forward in the service you provide for/with others. Virgo is looking at ALL the details of hands-on life, PERFECTING all the processes/rules you live by. Hence the daily work aspect – what business processes/company processes need to be perfected? Been holding off on changing your eating habits? Exercise routines? Handling the paperwork at home and in the office? Seen holes in processes that determine the strength and/or weaknesses of profit and production? The Fruits of Our Labours?

Cardinal signs = initiating new ideas, work, projects etc. Fixed signs = dealing with ALL the details to bring that work or project or idea into manifestation (the product). And the Mutable signs = brings the ability to change tack, bring in something NEW along the way (or let go of something we thought was important at the time yet is not now) AND the ability to LOOK BACK at how THIS process is working. How well did we do? Any changes to keep in mind for the next project/idea/piece of work/CYCLE? Do you see why I love love love Astrology?!

Keep in mind, within this current Moon cycle, within the Sun currently in Cancer about to go into Leo, within ALL the rest of the planetary cycles we travel through consciously/unconsciously every day/month/year/decade/lifetime – WE are CONTINUALLY growing and changing. Deep Within and Without. Most times those Inner Changes are NOT seen by anyone else outside of our world or self! Just Me Myself and I will notice them. Other times, As Within, So Without. BEcause – the deep inner changes can take a LONG TIME/cycle to begin and end, THEN the Without will show itself.

Seasonal Zodiac Wheel

Seasonal Zodiac Wheel

Bottom Line here folks: Keep the FAITH (Pisces/Neptune) that CHANGE is happening (Pluto/Scorpio), that you are EXPANDING your inner world (Jupiter/Sagittarius) until the tipping point comes and shows itself – OUTWARDLY (Saturn/Capricorn) and brings a NEW aspect of Self out (Uranus/Aquarius) to be SEEN/heard by Others (Mercury/Virgo and Gemini). HEARTfully (Sun/Leo) EMOTIONALLY (Moon/Cancer) via our DESIRES of love/beauty of Self and significant Other (Venus/Taurus and Libra) taking self-ACTION (Mars/Aries) along the way.

Blessed BE!
