584-day Synodic Journey of Venus from Leo: Leadership of the Feminine Heart

DSC04609On July 18, 2015, a new leg of the 8-year long Synodic Journey of Venus began a 584-day Journey, began from the fixed fire sign of Leo. Each 584-day period x 5 periods = 8 years, creating a pentagram pattern in the sky. I’ve been wanting to write this post for many months, but the Time wasn’t right to do so, until today. August  3, 2016.

According to Shamanic Astrology, Venus in our birth chart represents our pre-existing desires and needs (via money, assets and resources) and the Value we place upon these outward things that are significant to us (the Taurus face of Venus) and transforms them, over time, to how we relate to them internally, energetically. Hence the sometimes “emotional attachment” we can have with THINGS!!

She also ushers in our ‘family’ of relationships (be they close friends, colleagues, co-workers, bosses, significant intimate partnerships, clients, business partnerships – the Libra face of Venus). Her transits (or journey She undergoes in the NOW) set us up for significant Karmic recall/re-examination. We attract those people/situations into our lives to live out past/current emotional/physical/mental/spiritual blockages, NOW, that we’ve either created this lifetime and/or brought forward from past lifetimes, to hopefully heal and finally embrace with love, within this lifetime.

Venus, as the Goddess of Love, Peace, Harmony and her many ‘faces’- as maiden, mother and crone, has worked tirelessly to this end, together with the Asteroid Goddesses of:

  • Ceres (since 1801), Goddess of Agriculture, the Harvest, and Abundance of the Land – Mothering.
  • Pallas Athena (since 1802), Goddess of Wisdom, Patron of the Arts – the Feminine Wisdom principle.
  • Juno (since 1804), Queen of the Gods, Patroness of Marriage and Fertility, our need for committed, fulfilling relationships (the Sacred Marriage).
  • Vesta (since 1807), Goddess of Hearth/Home Fire and our devotion to duty, plus our respective sexuality.
  • Hygeia (since 1849), Goddess of Hygiene, Health, and our health practices.
  • And the newly discovered feminine planets of Sedna (since 2003), Goddess of Infinite Supply – who feeds the tribe – vs. Victim/Lack Consciousness, and
  • Eris (since 2005), Sister to Mars, Goddess of Strife/Discord – represents the part of Self you’ve neglected to INVITE to the party of YOUR LIFE!

The Divine Feminine Principles and energetic power returned to this Earth during the June 2012 transit of Venus moving across the Sun, for the world, and Universe, to see and experience. All women/girls of every walk of life and age have been undergoing a huge internal shift deep Within, be they conscious of it or not. We are learning to stand in our power as the Divine Feminine energy we truly are, regaining and mastering equality within this world that is Earth. After who knows how long, the Divine Feminine Energy Principle stands up to MEET, in EQUALITY, with the Divine Masculine Energy, to finally stand side-by-side.

Men have also been undergoing huge shifts Within, of THEIR Divine Feminine Power energy too! In order to do so, THEIR Divine Masculine Power energy has had to take a step back to ALLOW the EQUAL portion of their Inner Feminine to step in and take up more room within each of them. Not an easy or seamless process for them (letting go of power and control especially)! And yes, it is a process that is still ongoing…for all of us…

What exactly IS the Divine Feminine Power energy? The subtle realms of intuitive knowing, insights, ‘seeing’ symbolically, connection Within to your daily feelings, emotions, following your intuition, allowing the compassion, empathy, forgiveness and love to BE received, felt then shared. Our connection to the Divine, how we RECEIVE those messages. The Divine Masculine Power then Takes Action from those intuitive hits.

A pentagram star is created by Venus’ synodic journey (in the sky) from the date of our respective births, and is completed every 8th year. The significant birthdays for all of us are: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72,80, 88, 96 and 104, and we experience a Synodic Venus Return that year. Each of us are born during a particular phase of the Venus Cycle, and when Venus returns to her original position, with the Sun, near those birthday ages noted above, we in turn return to that phase in Her journey, within our life.

According to Cayenne K Castell, Shamanic Astrologer, “we move to an even higher octave of the feminine expression we came to earth to experience during each Venus Return timing. For women, it is all about our emerging feminine identity for this life, what aspect of the Goddess you have come to explore, express and help evolve. For men, this is their connection to the sacred feminine and what they intend to integrate as their Inner Other or Inner Beloved. Each 8-year Synodic Venus Return Cycle is a powerful initiation time intended to deepen our experience as well as be a part of the evolution of these Divine Feminine archetypal energies.”

“The 584-day Synodic cycle begins and ends from Heliacal Rise (meaning the planet Venus’ rise before the Sun does, when She is Rx – retrograde) to Heliacal Rise, up in the physical sky.

Sky Views from Nose Hill Park

On July 24, 2015 Venus Stationed Retrograde (Rx – began to move supposedly backward/energetically Inward) at 00 degrees of Virgo 45′ and disappeared from the evening sky on August 9, 2015 at 27 degrees of Leo. Interestingly, note that Jupiter also entered Virgo August 12th, 2015, seemingly guiding Venus on her Journey! Expansive and amplifying energy, to assist Her (and us!) past limited boundaries, taking leaps of Faith towards NEW heights. A rare event!

Venus spends 40 days Rx, moving from Evening Star (seeing Her in the evening sky) to Morning Star (seeing Her in the early morning sky). During Her Rx phase, Venus conjuncts with the Sun, and a few days later RISES as a Morning Star, and each step of the way as Morning Star She connects (conjuncts) with 7-8 Moon phases! So over 7-8 Moon cycles / months, Venus and the Moon connect. More on this later…

The Heliacal Rise of Venus August 21, 2015 occurred at 19 degrees of Leo and Stationed Direct September 5, 2015 at 15 degrees of Leo.” All of this sounds a wee bit technical, yet I ask you to think back in your life to these dates I mention: where were you, Within, and within your Life? How did you feel? What did you like/dislike about your life back then?

Question: have you heard of the story of the Descent of Inanna (Venus’ Summerian name) or Ishtar (Venus’ Babylonian name)? This is exactly what Venus’ 584-day Synodic Journey is all about! And has been recorded and celebrated for many 1,000s of years! Read on…

“Morning Star Venus (as Inanna/Ishtar) begins her descent into the Underworld. She meets with the waning Moon 7 times (sometimes 8) going through the 7 Gates into the Underworld. At each Gate she gives up a Vestment associated with the 7 Chakras, releasing any distortions linked with these Chakra energies:

  • Gate 1 – Crown Chakra – The Gate of Authority (removing Her crown) – occurred September 10, 2015 at 15 degrees of Leo, within the Balsamic Moon phase – where we experience a ‘death’ of some aspect of our Ego-Self, and seeds a re-birth soon to come during the next New Moon phase).
  • Gate 2 – Brow or 3rd Eye Chakra – The Gate of Perception (removing Her royal staff) – occurred October 8, 2015 at 00 degrees Virgo, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 3 – Throat Chakra – The Gate of Communication (removing Her necklace) – occurred November 7, 2015 at 29 degrees Virgo, also during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 4 – Heart Chakra – The Gate of Compassion (removing Her breast plate) – occurred December 7, 2015 at 03 degrees Scorpio, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 5 – Solar Plexus Chakra – The Gate of Personal Power (removing Her ring of power) – occurred January 6, 2016 at 10 degrees of Sagittarius, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 6 – Sacral or Belly Chakra – The Gate of Creativity (removing Her ankle bracelets) –  occurred February 5, 2016 at 17 degrees of Capricorn, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 7 – Root Chakra – The Gate of Manifestation (removing Her royal robe) – occurred March 7, 2016 at 24 degrees of Aquarius, during the Balsamic Moon phase.
  • Gate 8 – The Death by Intent Gate, occurred April 6, 2016 at 01 degrees of Aries, during the Balsamic Moon phase. In other words, we began a symbolic ‘death’ of some sort within each of our respective lives!

Venus joins the Sun for 60 – 90 days – the Underworld phase. Here Inanna/Ishtar dies, then is reborn 60 – 90 days later, after She meets with the Sun, or Source of Life. Dying to Her old self, and preparing to be reborn anew.

Venus disappeared from the morning sky April 30, 2016 at 01 degrees of Taurus, and met the Sun on June 6, 2016 at 16 degrees of Gemini.

Nose Hill Labyrinth 2016

Labyrinth Walk with Chris, Nose Hill Park, July 2016

Venus rose as the Evening Star on July 13, 2016 at 02 degrees of Leo. From April 30 to July 13, we experienced our respective walks through the Underworld for 74 days! What aspect of Self died within you then?

As Evening Star, Venus meets with the waxing Moon 7-8 times, returning through the 7 Gates in the reverse order, now Transformed and Empowered from Her initiation as She regains her Vestments:

  • Gate 1 – Root Chakra – The Gate of Manifestation (regaining Her royal robe) – occurred TODAY, August 3, 2016 at 28 degrees of Leo, during the New Moon phase – where we initiate change, new beginnings, a rebirth of some sort!
  • Gate 2 – Sacral Chakra – The Gate of Creativity (regaining Her ankle bracelets) – will occur September 3, 2016 at 05 degrees Virgo, during the New Moon phase, 2 days AFTER the Solar Eclipse / New Moon at 09 degrees of Virgo 23′!
  • Gate 3 – Solar Plexus Chakra – The Gate of Personal Power (regaining Her ring of power) – will occur October 3, 2016 at 13 degrees of Scorpio, during the New Moon phase, 20 days after the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 24 degrees of Pisces 13′!
  • Gate 4 – Heart Chakra – The Gate of Compassion (regaining Her breast plate) – will occur November 2, 2016 at 19 degrees of Sagittarius, during the New Moon phase.
  • Gate 5 – Throat Chakra – The Gate of Communication (regaining Her necklace) – will occur December 3, 2016 at 25 degrees of Capricorn, during the New Moon phase, just prior to the Crescent Moon phase (challenge/struggle between the New vs. the Old Ego-Self ways).
  • Gate 6 – Brow or 3rd Eye Chakra – The Gate of Perception (regaining Her royal staff) – will occur January 2, 2017 at 29 degrees of Aquarius, during the Crescent Moon phase.
  • Gate 7 – Crown Chakra – The Gate of Authority (regaining Her crown) – will occur January 31, 2017 at 28 degrees of Pisces, during the Crescent Moon phase, and 11 days prior to the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 22 degrees Leo 34′!
  • Gate 8 – The Ascension Gate – Life by Intent – will occur February 28, 2017 at 13 degrees of Aries, during the New Moon phase, and 2 days after the Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 08 degrees of Pisces 09′!

Venus begins Her Rx phase in the evening sky March 3, 2017 at 13 degrees of Aries, and is Rx for 40 days, disappearing from the evening sky March 18, 2017 at 09 degrees of Aries. Then Venus travels with the Sun for 7-8 days, meeting with the Sun, exactly conjunct on March 25, 2017 at 05 degrees of Aries.

Venus emerges in the morning sky on March 31, 2017 at 01 degrees of Aries, as a whole NEW archetype of the Feminine – a.k.a the Heliacal Rise of Venus, and the start of a new 584-day cycle!

New Larch Trees!

For YOU To Do Next: think back on your life since July 2015. What changes have YOU undergone, deep within? Perceive what YOU let go of, via each Gate / Moon phase / Chakra from September 10, 2015 until the ‘death by intent’ April 6, 2016. Here are some keywords about each Chakra’s energetic influence (according to the Chopra Centre), Within YOU:

  • Root Chakra: influences physical identity, stability and sense of safety; when blocked, you may experience lack of physical energy, a sense of being ungrounded.
  • Sacral Chakra: influences emotional identity, creativity and desire; when blocked, you may experience creative blocks, intimacy issues, inability to flow with change.
  •  Solar Plexus Chakra: influences ego identity, personal power, ambition; when blocked, you may experience low self-esteem, lack of willpower, fear of rejection.
  • Heart Chakra: influences social identity, love, relationships; when blocked, you may experience difficulty with relationships, lack of compassion, hopelessness.
  • Throat Chakra: influences self-expression, communication, integrity; when blocked, you may experience difficulty communicating your thoughts and speaking your truth.
  • Third Eye Chakra: influences self-reflection, intuition, clarity of sight; when blocked, you may experience difficulty making decisions, poor intuition, lack of inspiration.
  • Crown Chakra: influences self-knowledge, spirituality, connection to the Divine; when blocked, you may experience difficulty meditating, lack of spiritual connections, aimlessness.

You will ‘see’ how well each of your Chakras were already working prior to your descent to the Underworld between September 10, 2015 and April 6, 2016. As you look back in time, what did YOU Let Go Of along the way, during each of those Gates/Moon phases? Be it consciously or unconsciously?

Now ‘see’, as of TODAY: what you are REGAINING, via your Root Chakra/1st Gate of Manifestation, that you DID NOT HAVE or were BLOCKED from, back on September 10, 2015! Do you ‘see’ your Inner Self’s changes along the way? Do you ‘see’ your Inner Growth? Yay! THIS is what Venus’ Synodic Journey brings to the table within each of us.

DSC04594

Nose Hill Vistas, July 2016

As you progress through the rest of the Gates between today and March 31, 2017, regaining more of what you TRULY wish for YOU, keep the following Leo Archetype symbolism (according to Shamanic Astrology) of Venus’ Synodic Journey since July 2015 in mind:

  • “Venus in Leo is not satisfied with simply surviving! Her impetus is directed to THRIVE, to gain MORE joy, pleasure, reward, love and acknowledgement!
  • Increasing our sense of Desire and Deserving of ALL good things!
  • Venus in Leo stokes the fire Within with added confidence, enthusiasm, optimism, and creative instinct.
  • Venus in Leo creates a time to renew our love affair with Self and with LIFE! This transit will prompt you to an Inner Search and Retrieve of the ‘good stuff’ that you may have forgotten or let go of before this cycle!
  • She will set the wheels in motion to awaken your sense of “I DESERVE!”, in turn launching the CREATE-IT Process! [I love how the Oprah/Deepak Chopra 21-day Meditation challenge this past month was ALL ABOUT Creativity, exactly setting us up for TODAY!]
  • When your sense of deserving is well-centred, a more fruitful stage is set for the calling forth of reward!”

We will learn to  embody the STRENGTH of both Mars and Saturn Rx within Sagittarius this  Moon cycle too – both part of our Inner support system. Leo rules the heart AND the back/spine – do you HAVE the backbone (aka strength) to ASK for (verbally, OUT LOUD) and CREATE what you heartfully WANT in your life? We require this, to CHOOSE from STRENGTH, rather from FEAR…from our own Higher Creative Self in other words.

DSC04648

Prairie Wildflower, July 2016

This Moon cycle began with the Yod, Finger of God pointing to the Sun/Moon position in Leo. Today I want to mention the Mutable Grand Square within the upcoming Lion’s Gate Portal, August 8th – the day of Divine heartfelt downloads of messages for each of us, creating flowing solidness (backbone/spine) for each of us to stand up from Within, from the following planetary players:

  • Midheaven in Gemini: what information/data are you RECEIVING during this Lion’s Gate Portal timing? How does it serve you?
  • South Node and Neptune (Rx) in Pisces: retrieving and keeping the ‘gems’ of our Spiritual / Divine Self, AND archiving the old Drama Triangle/martyrdom roles we played so well…then IMAGINE to New Life you wish for yourself!
  • Mars and Saturn (Rx) in Sagittarius: what ACTION will you take, BE responsible for, OUT in the wider world? How will you seek your Higher Truth/Purpose – your role THIS lifetime? Take some time August 8th to look at the BIG PICTURE of your life to this point – where have you been? How have you travelled to this time and place since birth? What MORE do you desire to DO/BE/THINK/DESIRE? Can you ‘see’ what’s beckoning you on to Next Steps forward?
  • Mercury and North Node in Virgo: How, and what, are you deciding to BE of service with or for? How does this look different to where you were back in September? Any of the aforementioned – how is it BETTER, AUTHENTIC, TRUER for you now?

As I mentioned in the previous post about the New Moon in Leo, I feel Hilary Clinton’s very public rise to where she is now, running for the position as the next President of the United States, brings to mind a few things: does she have the heart for it? Does she have the backbone to do the job? And will she LEAD with HEART? Another key phrase that is Leo. What do the American people need more of? Hope for?

It will be interesting to see how Hilary herself undergoes this Gate, and the next 3 Gates, regaining her royal robe, ankle bracelet, ring of power and breast plate, respectively, between now and the US Election November 8th (which occurs during the 1st QTR Moon phase in Cancer – all about FAMILY, and a Crisis of Action to be taken to break the bindings of the Past in order to create CHANGE!). She and Queen Elizabeth are two different female leaders. Who comes from the heart, leading the way by standing true to her Inner Divine Feminine Power? And what changes will occur to both women/leaders between now and then?

What changes are YOU intending in your own life? I will remind each of us, during the coming Moon cycles and Eclipse timings, what we are REGAINING – women AND men! BE the CHANGE you want to SEE! Stay tuned…

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!

An End Of A Cycle…

Sheep River, AB Thanksgiving Weekend 2015

Sheep River, AB Thanksgiving Weekend 2015

During the end phase of this Moon cycle! We’ve been experiencing the Balsamic Moon phase since November 7th at 8:00a MST. It brings us an opportunity to LET GO of whatever it is we’ve learned from, and about ourselves, since October 12th’s New Moon, that no longer works for us or within us. This is what Moon cycles do – offer opportunities to further our Self/Soul growth via awareness of what is getting in the way of BEing our true authentic self.

As of Saturday morning the Moon entered the waning Crescent phase (aka Balsamic Moon) at 29 degrees of Virgo 52′. Another indication we are completing a cycle is that 29th degree!

We began this Moon cycle in Virgo, and now we are definitely COMPLETING and closing – something! How many of you have had the urge to clear out closets, drawers, catch up on housework/homework/classwork/business work, especially those inconvenient small spaces/pieces we tend to “get to next time”? Virgo’s mutable earth energy compels us to perfect our processes, organize/reorganize, and “get to work” on some project(s) we’ve been putting off before now. All of a sudden we are focused, energized and ready to “take it on” – whatever IT may be.

Autumn Plums & Leaves October 2015

Autumn Plums & Leaves October 2015

BE aware of what you are letting go of. Thank this part of you for ALL its lessons that have brought you here to this moment of Self/Soul growth! Yay! It could be there are physical things leaving your life, or ways of working at home or in the office, or how you’ve been looking after the health of your physical body. BE aware of your NEW self that is shedding a coat or skin that no longer feels comfortable, let alone YOU! Yay!

The other cycle that has ENDED is the Age of Pisces, creating space for us to totally dive into our Aquarian/Leonine aspects of Self/Soul within the Age of Aquarius! Yay! We’ve been extremely busy these past several decades, and especially since 12-12-12, to LET GO of that Drama Triangle of victim/rescue(r)/persecute/or of Poor Me, O Woe Is Me etc etc. That is in our past now.

How many of you have seen the multitude of adult-oriented colouring books in every store/bookstore to be found? Yet another indication that the Leo component (opposite sign to Aquarius) is now blending itself in with HOW we are BEing our true individual selves, humanitarians and creating new groups and allies as we BECOME our Future Selves (Aquarius).

Sheep River Bed, October 2015

Sheep River Bed, October 2015

Leo rules the heart and back and spine. Any physical issues there for anyone? Hhhhmmmm….this indicates some resistance from the Ego-self re: opening our hearts to NEW creativity/creative pursuits, allowing IN more fun and play, and romance anyone? Leo wants to SHINE its Inner Light out for all to see. Of course some may take this a bit too far – drama Queen/King can come to mind (!!) yet allowing this aspect of your Inner Child out to play is way okay.

How many of you are noticing a return to playing card and board games? BEing with family, friends and groups of people to just BE with one another, playing like children? Another indication of how well we are now blending and weaving in the Leo in this Aquarian Age. Yay!

We have ALL done a LOT of work these past Moon cycles, Letting GO of our emotional attachments to the past, past lives, and past Ages. I tell you now, if you’ve been weeping or crying a wee bit, especially this Moon cycle, you are not alone! And you are right on Time, in Divine Timing, tapping to the Pisces aspect of this Virgo Moon cycle (Pisces is the opposite sign to Virgo). More and more I will be indicating how well we are blending and weaving IN the opposite signs – BOTH bring awareness – BOTH bring opportunity to “see” our polar opposites (within and without).

Gibbous Moon and Orb Aug 28, 2015

Gibbous Moon and Orb Aug 28, 2015

The next New Moon cycle begins Wednesday. Between now and then, BE aware of what no longer works for you, within you, and around you. BE aware of your processes – BEing in an rut is also an indicator. I find it fascinating how WHAT WE LEARN about Self/Soul from one Moon phase to the next, we may decide to bring that seed of knowingness WITH us into the next NEW MOON seed of unrealized potential, planting new intentions for FURTHER Self/Soul growth in future cycles.

Or we can be okay with where we are at, for now, with whatever we’ve learned of  our-Self/Soul, with intention to return to that awareness in some future Moon cycle and Moon phase. Because, really, if you think about it, we are all undergoing a continuous CYCLE of CREATING new Intentions for further Self/Soul growth with every passing Moon cycle, phase and daily habit we experience between now and meeting up with our Future Self/Soul somewhere soon, along our respective paths down here on Earth….

Blessed BE!

Ready, Willing and Want To…

Oct 15, 2015 Sunset Skies

Oct 15, 2015 Sunset Skies

It’s been yet another wild ride for most of us human BEings during this latest round of solar flares (turning into solar winds and storms down here on Earth), stargate downloads reminding us all WHY we are still here (!!) and the usual weirdness of a Full Moon just before the thin veil Between the Worlds of Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve.

Every month, during a full Moon cycle of approximately 28-29 days, we experience a new round of conscious awareness via listening to our Emotional Body’s messages, signalling the latest news and views emitting from our Ego-self (consciously or otherwise) that require the following:

  • Awareness
  • What to DO with the awareness
  • Hopefully allowing the release, letting go of Old Patterns of Conditioning around this awareness, then
  • The healing process begins (aka rest, weeping, yelling, walking, talking – whatever it is that helps you to release the Old), then
  • Acceptance of what WAS to allow the NEW to unfold as it will (again, YOUR process that is unique to you, and you alone), which leads to
  • Greater Self Love, hence more love to share with Others.

The KEY to all of this Moon cycle awareness, release to heal, acceptance and soul growth, TIMING wise, is the following:

  • Am I Willing?
  • Am I Ready?
  • Do I Want To?
Oct 15, 2015 Sunset Skies II

Oct 15, 2015 Sunset Skies II

All three of these steps must be answered with a resounding YES! We must BE Willing to step towards our Soul’s desires, away from our Ego’s fears and its need for the status quo.

We must BE Ready to go through ALL of what our unique process entails to heal, let go, heal, let go, accept and LOVE ALL aspects of ourselves along the way.

We must WANT to move towards a Higher BEingness, consciously or not. To BE our most True Authentic Soul-self we can possibly BE, every moment we are Aware of Self. That we are aware of Breathing. That we are aware of BEing down here on Earth.

I did up a chart called “Between The Worlds” timed for midnight of November 1st. The Celtics believed that the veil between the physical world and the Unseen world (where our loved ones and ancestors, who have passed-over, now reside) became quite thin as of All Hallow’s Eve and All Soul’s Day (October 31st to November 1st). At this time of year, as we see more darkness and less light each day, we can connect more easily with those Ancestors and love ones to remember them, give thanks to them, forgive them, and love them. And to ask for insights, knowledge, guidance – whatever we need now in our lives.

As I looked at this chart, I saw a Grand Trine in the water signs (so many of us have been wondering WHY am I weeping and crying so much of late?) connecting the following planets in this emotional/intuitional love-line triangle:

  • The Moon in Cancer at 12 degrees and 17′ – the Moon rules this cardinal water sign, and the Home & Hearth, nurturance, family and our emotional familial line way way back in time. How does your family of origin’s emotional patterns keep you from moving forward? What needs to be let go of, healed?
  • The Sun in Scorpio at 08 degrees and 32′ – the Sun entered this fixed water sign as of October 23rd @ 11:47a MDT. Since then the Sun has been Illuminating/shining the Light of awareness into the deep waters of our Ego-fears of whatever the flavour of this Moon cycle is revealing. Trust issues, the need to dive deeply for greater detail and awareness of the WHY of things in our respective lives, HUGE Ego-self fears re: Anything and Everything imaginable – NOT rational at all at all! It is what it is folks!
  • Neptune, Rx in Pisces at 07 degrees and 06′ – Neptune rules Pisces and our 12th House of our Hidden Self – that which we don’t quite see or understand most of the time. How does one explain our connection to Spirit to self, let alone others? Or meeting up with a past life that has unresolved issues NOW to be healed, that otherwise blocks us from moving forward in this Life? Neptune brings the Illusions, and Delusions into REALITY, if only for a brief moment, for us to grasp “What the H is going on now deep within me?” With Neptune being Rx (retrograde) to boot – means really deep-felt, personal confrontations with our Inner Victim, Rescuer/Rescue ME! and Persecutor/Feeling Persecuted (aka the Drama Triangle) that we are still releasing ourselves from (Old Age of Pisces flotsam and jetsam).

As of the Full Moon in Taurus, October 27th, there was a love-line connecting the Sun, newly entered into Scorpio (03 degrees and 45′) with Neptune Rx (07 degrees of Pisces 24′) plus Chiron Rx at 17 degrees of Pisces 24′, heralding a great HEALING (Chiron) of any spiritual separation (Neptune in Pisces) we’re still clinging on to due to our Ego-self’s Fears to trust in this reconnect (Scorpio). The Chiron healing and the slow building of the planetary dance towards the Grand Trine is what we’ve all been FEELING since the Full Moon.

I ask you all again: Are You Ready? Are You Willing? Do You Want To? Tuesday the Moon heads into the Last Qtr Moon phase in Leo at 6:25a MST. This Moon phase heralds a Crisis in Consciousness – do we allow our Ego-self’s desire to return our heads/hearts back into the Sands of Denial (from Fear and Resistance to change) OR, do we allow ourselves, with courage (Leo rules the Heart and is NOT the cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz fame) to OPEN our hearts even MORE, to SHINE Unconditionally, for Self and Others, AND Create a New Future for ourselves?

Are You Ready? Are You Willing? Do You Want To? BE More? Let GO of the old barriers holding your Heart back, to CREATE space for the NEW (Unknown to you right now – and that in itself can totally freak out your Ego-self!) to come floating into your Life as it is intended – no Expectations.

Look to your charts to see what sign(s) are in your 12th of your Hidden Self. Here is where past life issues, unresolved before now, can be getting in your way to BE open-hearted to yourself and then others. If you don’t have a birth chart right now – call me. I’ll be happy to assist you in unveiling possible past-life connections, revealing the WHY of current challenges in your life. Know that the TIME is right only if You Are Ready, You Are Willing, and You Want To.

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.

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.]

Fresh Green in October

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.

Pluto Heart 2015 NASA

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!

BLESSED BE!

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo…

You don’t become a mistake just because you have made one!”

– Author Unknown

How very much a Virgo Shadow illusion this quote is. How many of us, over a lifetime, actually believe this to be true, deep deep down? Be honest with yourself here….just a tiny bit perhaps?

Part of Virgo’s Shadow is trying to BE perfect, along with the judgements and criticisms of Ego-Self and Others along the way. How many of us continue along this vein, in any area of our lives? Especially in the area where Virgo resides within your horoscope chart? Interesting….

Solar Eclipse - Partial

Solar Eclipse – Partial

In a few hours from now, we will experience a Partial Solar Eclipse – the darkest part of its shadow, cast by the Moon coming in between the Sun and Earth, will not seen by us here in the Americas – mostly southern Africa, Indian Ocean and Antarctica areas of the world. A partial eclipse means the Moon in between the Sun and Earth aren’t all aligned perfectly (!!) in a straight line, hence the Moon will only partially cover the Sun’s disc.

A solar eclipse only occurs during a New Moon, and only when the plane of the Moon’s orbital path around Earth is inclined at a 5 degree angle to the Earth’s orbital plane (called the ecliptic) around the Sun.

The points where the two orbital planes meet are known as the Lunar Nodes (North Node and South Node). Therefore a solar eclipse occurs only when a New Moon takes place near a Lunar Node!

Dragon's Head & Tail

Dragon’s Head & Tail

Interestingly, the path of the current Lunar Nodes are sitting at 00 degrees of Libra (North Node) at 00 degrees of Aries (South Node always sits opposite of the North Node, in its opposite sign) with this New Moon (Moon and Sun together) sitting at 20 degrees of Virgo – just 10 degrees away from one another, hence the Solar Eclipse. The closer the Moon/Sun of the New Moon sits to the North/South Nodes, the more exact (total) the solar eclipse will be! I love how this Virgo New Moon is only a Partial Solar Eclipse – not a perfectly aligned Sun/Moon/Earth! Is this driving any Virgoans wild right now? AND especially because we cannot ‘see’ the actual eclipse?!

Eclipse energy is known, Astrologically, as signifying events that can be far-reaching. Some say it is just the day of the eclipse; others extend it by 3-6 months prior to/after the eclipse occurs; others think this energy can last up to 3.5 years afterward. I think of it this way: the few months leading up to an eclipse is like the New Moon cycle, waxing its energy to peak at Full Moon (the eclipse event) and then slowly letting go over time until the next New Moon – or in this case, the next set of eclipses. Usually there is a 6-month wait between eclipse seasons (usually in the  Spring and Fall).

Fall Colours 2014

Fall Colours 2014

Also, the sign in which the Solar Eclipse occurred in the Spring (on March 20th this year in Pisces) “completes” intensely energy-wise as it closes with it’s opposite sign’s Solar Eclipse 6 months later – for us, this year, just after midnight in Virgo. The Lunar Eclipse in Libra on April 4th will complete with the upcoming Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse September 27th in Aries (opposite signs). This is why the early Spring and Fall months are so intense! Not just about the growing season beginning/ending here on Earth – ’tis the Inner Growing season deep with each of us (As Within, So Without) AND the letting GO of what no longer “grows corn” for our Soul.

Looking at this Pisces/Virgo combination of eclipses in 2015, we ‘see’ how illusions, delusions, addictions, and escapism that we once held near and dear to our hearts 6 months ago no longer do so now! Virgo rules the service we DO daily (aka work) AND the health of our physical body. Do you ‘see’ the progress you have made these 6 months in the Actions (Solar) taken to let go of the Old Piscean Shadow issues that have led to where we sit now, on the cusp of this New Moon/Solar eclipse in Virgo – initiating change and taking NEW ACTION re: how we are of service AND Being of service for the health of our respective physical bodies? You will also ‘see’ what new action is required NOW that you weren’t quite able to handle before NOW. Do you see this perfection of how we don’t need to do it all perfectly now this instant? Life is a process…and so are we.

I must chat about the Moon’s Nodes sitting at 00 degrees of Libra/Aries for this New Moon/Solar Eclipse. As cardinal signs (Air and Fire) these two signal the beginning of the Fall (Libra) and Spring (Aries) seasons – huge energy of INITIATING change and new direction here on Earth re: our growing/dying seasons. AND, the New Moon signals our intention to INITIATE change and something new within our Emotional Body (Moon) and Spiritual Body (Sun). Lastly, both Nodes are sitting at 00 degrees of their respective signs – again, INITIATING a brand NEW cycle. Let’s break this down further…

The Lunar Nodes travel backwards through the Zodiacal signs (whereas the planets move forward – from 00 degrees through to 29 degrees – then into the next sign). It takes approximately 22 months for the Nodes to travel through each sign. The current Nodal journey through Libra/Aries began January 19, 2014 (beginning at 29 degrees) and will finally leave Libra/Aries as of November 13th, 2015 when they enter Virgo/Pisces (again at 29 degrees).

Beach Estates Park 2012

Beach Estates Park 2012

Look back at your own Inner Journey of self-growth to ‘see’ how you have let go of some shadow aspects of this Libra/Aries pairing of the North Node (the Dragon’s Head – the direction our collective Soul wishes to grow into because we haven’t explored this area much at all) and the South Node (the Dragon’s Tail – the direction from which we bring past talents/skills AND unresolved issues from past lives and earlier this lifetime – where our Ego-self loves to live because it is familiar).

Libra signifies the need to partner, share, BE your true self in tandem with another (be it close personal friends, clients, partnerships – personal and/or business). How well have you allowed your Soul’s need to move into the direction of BEing INTERDEPENDENT rather than co-dependent within your relationships with others? Hhhmmm….

Aries brings in the instinctual need to BE ME, all about ‘Me, Myself and I’ – independent from others (and for some, at all costs). Truly expressing your Self-Identity, unique to you. Here the Ego-self can get tangled into totally forgetting that Others exist in their world (or in the world) and “I can do it all by myself thanks!” comes into play.

Summer Solstice 2012 Nanaimo Harbour, BC

Summer Solstice 2012 Nanaimo Harbour, BC

The passive/aggressive parley between the two extremes is what we have been working upon and learning to heal. With Libra/North Node/Dragon’s Head – we have been moving forward into more loving, harmonious and balanced relationships – across the board, while ‘seeing’ the relationships that are NOT. These have to change or be left behind.

The Aries/South Node/Dragon’s Tail has assisted all of us to sweep away (with the Tail) all unresolved issues from our pasts – moving away from BEing an Island, I am all alone in this, and I can do it all by myself – letting go of insisting on ‘Me, Myself & I’ to create space for SHARING, CARING and BALANCE of ‘ME time’ AND ‘WE time’! ME = Aries; WE = Libra. Balance, creating an “AND” here yet again.

This New Moon/Solar Eclipse assists us with taking NEW inSPIRed Action (Solar = the fire of BEing In Spirit – or inspired – via our Inner Spirit/Soul) with how well we have perfected the process (Virgo) of looking after our true Self-Identity AND keeping true to this Self within ALL relationships we make along the way. No more sacrificing, denying, hiding the Light of our Soul Self! Like the beacon of a lighthouse, BE that beacon, shine your true inner Light, with LOVE, for all to see! BE You, yet BE in partnership, equally, with others. We have until November 12th to finish off the last pieces of this, shifting, ebbing and flowing with it all along the way

Spring Ice Thaw 2015

Spring Ice Thaw 2015

Saturn sits at 29 degrees of Scorpio for this New Moon/Solar Eclipse, therefore we are tying up any loose ends of how our Ego-self sits in FEAR of taking responsibility (Saturn) for our actions (or lack thereof) out in the world (Sagittarius – the next sign Saturn will enter). Take Soul-ful action (Solar Eclipse) to WALK through any remaining fears to BEing seen out in the world, authentically, that your Ego-self is still hanging onto. This can occur through just not showing up to begin with as you could, or eating so much that your true physical body is hidden away (hiding your true authentic self), or taking on Others’ responsibilities as an excuse for not living your own true authentic life! These are a few examples to chew on…

Jupiter continues to expand and amplify our awareness of how we wish to BE of service out in the world (and how well we are doing with our diets, exercise programs etc too!). Anyone seeing MORE eating of less healthy food/drink these past several weeks? This is a great indicator that the Ego-self is still in control, not your Soul-self. Use Saturn’s energy to help you LET GO of any remaining Ego-self FEARS to BE authentic for the rest of this Moon cycle. Scorpio is the ICE form of the water signs, so what do you need to assist with the melting of those fears you are carrying deep inside? Ask for these fears to ‘melt away’ with ease and grace, releasing resistance to the changes your Soul is beckoning you forward into. We can be “frozen with fear” and deeply so.

Phoenix and Stars

Phoenix and Stars

We continue to experience the Grand Trine (triangle) in Fire – very much a formation of Love to inSPIRE Soul-ful ACTION (fire) to create something new in our lives for the good. Here Venus in Leo (Desires from the Heart to create) + Uranus Rx in Aries (Unexpected Changes to be ‘Free to BE ME’) + Pallas in Sagittarius (incorporating mind/body healing techniques from around the world) play their parts within this Grand Trine. See where Leo, Aries and Sagittarius are in your birth charts – these are the areas of your life where you will take Soul-ful Action this month! If you are NOT inSPIRed to do so – In Spirit – then don’t make it happen! This is the Ego-self way – making it so, and now, to check another item off its To Do list…a friendly reminder…

Summing up: perfect yourself via the service you provide to Others and to your physical body AND continue to free up, let go and heal those Ego-self fears of BEing SEEN as your true authentic Soul-self AND take responsibility for your OWN actions/in-actions along the way. How you conduct yourself leading up to, during and in the aftermath of this New Moon/Solar Eclipse will impact your life for this next Moon cycle and perhaps for the next 3.5 years, energetically, physically, work-wise, and health-wise….just saying….

And if you are inSPIRed to learn more of how this New Moon/Solar Eclipse and upcoming Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will be impacting/activating your life, give me a call to set up either a Moon Cycle Report reading or other in-depth readings. See my contact information on the right side of this post. I look forward to hearing from you, and

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Pisces Today…

At 12:35p MDT, in the midst of all the forest fire smoke we continue to inhale from the Washington State fires, the Moon will sit in the early degrees of Pisces while the Sun sits in its opposite sign, Virgo.

Almost Full Moon Aug 28, 2015

Almost Full Moon Aug 28, 2015

I find it fascinating this week we’ve been under a haze of smoke for more than a week now. Pisces is all about Magic, Movies and Illusion/delusion. ‘Tis the fog as the last water sign of our Zodiac (Cancer is water and Scorpio, the third water sign, represents ice) and I ‘see’ this fog of smoke hiding our confusion over HOW to BE of Service these days in the current economic climate.

With the Full Moon shining in the Pisces water sign of BEing of Higher Service, beyond the Ego-self, connecting with our Higher Self, angels, Teams of guides et al, – the Sun sits exactly opposite in Virgo, how we are of Service in our daily mundane world down here on Earth.

Each opposition between our planetary partners creates another opportunity to create an “AND” world – beyond the Either/Or world we have left behind since 2012. We are no longer black or white, light or dark, female or male, right or wrong, or good or bad. This is the old 3D world we are leaving behind – far behind.

Since December 2012 we have been on a rather high learning curve to grasp and understand HOW to BLEND it all into BEing ONE – we are ALL part of the ONE, and always have been. We are now waking up to this reality that has always been true – the Ego-self has been hiding us away from this truth over many many thousands of lifetimes.

Gibbous Moon & Orb Aug 28, 2015

Gibbous Moon & Orb Aug 28, 2015

Creating an “AND” world is key now. We are part of the mult-verse, the Cosmos AND we are living and working down here on Earth. Our solar system is part of a galaxy, which in turn is part of many other galaxies which in turn make up a universe – or is it multiple universes? Do you sense the ongoing wheels of cycles and patterns having just read the above sentence?

Full Moon in Pisces, and Sun in Virgo (along with that Pantheon of Planets in Virgo I last blogged about) illuminates our way forward, collectively, in creating our unique respective ways and means of how we create SERVICE for now on (in preparation for the upcoming September eclipse season). Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, the Wise Woman/Man/Elder carrying forth decades AND lifetimes of wise knowledge to be shared with the collective. What is your wisdom? How are you sharing it? Do you ‘see’ the Service that comes from HOW you share it?

Virgo brings Service through processes, HOW we complete our tasks, with whom and for what purpose. Perfecting it as we move through our learning curve of the respective daily work we do here on Earth. Understandably, there are more unemployed workers due to the downturn in oil prices, yet again. Divine Timing I say – to create an “AND” out of what WAS your daily work AND what will BE your daily work! An opportunity for SOULful (Sun) change in what you took for granted as the service you did up until you were downsized, fired etc. Ask yourself this: “Was I truly happy doing that work? If I am being honest with myself, I will have to say….”

12 Hours prior to Full Moon in Pisces Aug 28, 2015

12 Hours prior to Full Moon in Pisces Aug 28, 2015

Looking at the chart I created for this Full Moon I see FIVE sets of planetary pairs assisting with our Wise Awakening today, and they are:

  • Full Moon AND Neptune Rx (Retrograde) in Pisces: I love this one! Here the planetary ruler of Pisces, Neptune, is IN Pisces, and is Rx – its energy is directed Inward for us to ‘see’ ourselves more clearly as Divine Eternal BEings in these physical bodies – and the Full Moon is spotlighting any hazy or foggy aspects we’re experiencing to fully EMBRACE this concept! Cool! Do you ‘see’ the Magic of the multi-verse WITHIN You?
  • Sun AND Jupiter in Virgo: Here we Soulfully (Sun) expand and amplify (Jupiter) how we ‘DO’ our daily service in this world – it can BE loud and clear, finally – as we also seek our Higher Purpose (Jupiter) why am I here this lifetime? What is my purpose? Soulfully. Daily. Purposely.
  • North Node Rx AND Mercury in Libra: The Dragon’s Head (smoke in the air, Dragon’s breath?) or North Node of the Moon, with its inward direction (Rx), beckons us into the direction our SOUL wishes us to go – to bring our mind (Mercury) into creating an AND (Libra) or balance, harmony, peacefulness deep within. Libra LOVES the challenge of the constant balancing act AND it is also our cardinal air sign of PARTNERSHIP. See your Inner Self partnering up with your wise Higher Self – wrap your Ego-brain around this concept as best you can….
  • Have you noticed anything else yet? How each of the elements are being activated with pairs or partners of planets, bringing ALL elements to the table of this Full Moon in Pisces?
  • Uranus Rx AND Eris Rx in Aries: Fire, finally! Dragon’s ‘Breath of Fire’ perhaps? The element of fire represents our ability to CREATE via Spirit – inSPIRation – to be inspired or IN SPIRIT. Uranus brings Unexpected Change and Innovation out of the blue (those bright ideas, insights, circumstances) AND Eris, our newest planet, brings gender-role re-balancing. Both Rx, therefore inward change (think earthquakes or lightening strikes of change deep within) of HOW we express our true self-identity (Aries) no matter our gender (Eris). No more traditional ROLES as we DO and BE our service in the world and beyond.
  • Mars AND Venus Rx in Leo: Now how cool is this? The male (Mars) AND female (Venus) representations of our Outer Male self (Mars Direct motion) AND Inner Female self (Venus Rx) coming together to create an AND. Heartfully (Leo fire) marrying how we take Action (Mars) out in the world in response to our Desire Body’s (Venus) ability to ‘hear’ ‘see’ ‘listen’ to the Intuitive Insights from our Higher Self’s Wisdom as to what direction, or next step, our Soul wishes us to make and take! Please note: BOTH men and women are being asked to embrace their respective Inner Feminine/Masculine selves AND work with BOTH as ONE for now on. We truly are all ONE – and always have been. The separation that WAS continues to end as we paint the Rainbow to bridge this gap that has been holding us in opposing camps for far too long.
1st QTR Red Moon Aug 24, 2015

1st QTR Red Moon Aug 24, 2015

Where there’s smoke, there is Fire. Hence the smoke haze AND two pairs of planets within Fire signs. AND we also have a Grand Trine (or triangle) in Fire signs that has slowly created itself as the Moon has waxed to this Full Moon phase we see today. More Fire – more smoke and mirrors.

What are we reflecting or mirroring (Libra) within and without with others? How have we been deluding ourselves with illusions of the past (Pisces)? What IS our true self-identity (Aries) now that our previous work (Virgo) is no more? What are we now creating (Leo)? AND AND AND – perfecting the new processes (Virgo) AND connecting to, and listening for, our Intuitive Insights (Pisces).  As the Old falls away, dying within the forest fires, the Phoenix Rises out of those ashes ANEW! BE that Phoenix – know you are Eternal, you do renew yourself over and over and over. Always, in All Ways.

Almost Full Moon Aug 2015

Almost Full Moon Aug 2015

TIME has also shifted this week, from the 1st QTR Moon phase in Scorpio into the Gibbous Moon phase in Capricorn. We are In Divine Timing, On Time, IN REAL TIME (now!) AND Before Time. How we use Time (Capricorn) and shape-shift it (Scorpio) to serve (Virgo) our Higher Purpose (Jupiter and Pisces) is up to each of us. [Ask for the necessary resources to be put in place ‘Before Time’ to prevent time lag]! Coming from your Soul-Heart (Sun rules Leo) honestly, truthfully, faithfully and endlessly. BE re-PURPOSED, now, On Purpose, and With Purpose.

Blessed BE!
