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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mt Lorette Ponds3

Mt Lorette Ponds 2016

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

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

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

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

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

Violets, Cedar Villa Extendicare 2016

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

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

Let me Think on That

Let Me Think on That…

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

Blessed BE!

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

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!

New Moon in Cancer: Family Ties?

June 2016 Thunderstorm Flooding

June 2016 Thunderstorm Flooding

Today’s New Moon began at 5:02a MDT with the Moon and Sun standing together at 12 degrees of Cancer 54′ – look to your birth charts to see the House of Life Experience this Moon cycle is activating for YOU as new beginnings and insights until August 2nd.

Cancer, as the Cardinal Water sign, rules the 4th House of home, hearth, mothering/nurturance, and the family emotional lineage. Cancer is ruled by the Moon – so this Moon cycle brings forth emotional baggage to be sorted through – and again, the House where 12 degrees of Cancer 54′ resides in your birth chart is the stage from which you will gain emotional INsight and healing.

Cancer really is the element of water – hence more rain and thunderstorms weatherwise, and emotionality personally will be experienced. As I write this post we are experiencing yet another thunderous storm of water!

Mercury is also helping out this Moon cycle – sitting at 09 degrees of Cancer 38′ – allow yourselves to express Self emotionally in your conversations, social media connections, and self talk. Lean into your intuitive side, bring out those deep INsights of why you are the way you are when it comes to self-nurturance, nurturance of others, and within family. The House where Cancer lies indicates to whom you give nurturance AND from whom you look to receive it.

Pluto sits opposite the Moon + Sun + Mercury, bringing in possible power and control issues related to MONEY or material gain (Capricorn) – so watch out for highly emotional interactions with family, extended family and friends who seem more like family than your family of origin. Try emPOWERment rather than power over or controlling tendencies – via LOVE, acceptance of differences, FORGIVENESS, COMPASSION – you see the theme here. Choose to see all aspects and sides of each story. As we all know, however many children grew up in the same household, there will be the SAME number of differing experiences and stories to share and perhaps heal.

This Moon cycle we will look down to the ROOTs of our respective origins – the parents who raised us, the family we lived with as children until we left their nest to strike out on our own. What will you be revisting?By August 2nd (the next New Moon date) you will know…

Our family heard late last week of the death of the father of one of the neighbourhood families we all interacted with when we were kids – the oldest daughter of that family and I were each other’s FIRST best friend! Loads of memories occurring for us as we remember those moments, her Dad, and their struggle with the English language (they came from Italy). Mirella had the responsibility to learn English at school, then be interpreter for her parents, aunt and uncle, until everyone else (including her siblings) learned to acclimate in their new home, city and country. Mirella took on the role of Mother in a unique way at a young age!

It is interesting that Cancer and the 4th House also represent the Country we live in or came from. Canada celebrated its 149th Birthday July 1st – and today is the 240th birthday of the USA. Both countries have Cancer as their Sun sign….interesting…we are very different from one another. It all depends upon where the Sun resides in both country’s charts! I will do an analysis of them in my next blog.

Potted Dwarf July 1 2016

Pluto’s position within Capricorn (Cardinal Earth sign) also squares off with all the shenanigans of Uranus + Eris within Aries (Cardinal Fire sign). In June we all experienced something ‘come to a head’ respectively in our lives – where is Aries in your chart? This is the House of Life Experience where “Free to BE ME!” came to a head – and Eris brought inSIGHT re: whatever aspect of YOU you’d been ignoring for a while, not allowing to come to the table. Uranus, Expect the Unexpected CHANGE guy, brought the electrical lightening bolt of CHANGE – be you willing to experience it or not! Bottom line: if you were allowing yourself to SEE the change that was required, you then ALLOWED it in by DOing the actions required in June. If you didn’t, well guess what? It happened despite all your best denial efforts…not easily.

NOTE: June’s coming together of Eris + Uranus exactly in June will be repeated in September and lastly in March 2017! The first hit of transits is always the worst – a bit of shock at the change – the next 2 times we all undergo this NEED to BE FREE will feel more familiar – and you will take it IN STRIDE, easier! The directions we thought we’d be heading into during the June Moon cycle weren’t necessarily the directions we DID head into…

Both Moon’s Nodes (North and South) have passed the halfway mark – sitting at 14 degrees of Virgo (North) and 14 degrees of Pisces (South). The North Node has been escorted most of the time by Jupiter, also in Virgo, since August 2015. Where is Virgo in your chart? This is where you expand beyond usual boundaries, take new risks (along with that Eris/Uranus duo in Aries!) and walk forward into the direction your Soul wants new experiences from (North Node). Could be you are re-visiting areas of life you experienced 12/13 years prior (last time Jupiter travelled through Virgo). Think back to that time, see where you were, and how does that time dovetail with NOW? And how has Eris/Uranus helped you to BE more ME in this round so far?

Arugula + Kale Garden

Arugula + Kale Garden

This Moon cycle, initiating NEW stuff (all those Cardinal signs!) emotionally, family-wise, self-nurturance-wise, boundaries, control/power – look at it from the perspective of ME, then my Ego-Self, then move outward to the family you are in now, then your family of origin/extended family, to the friends who are family, then out to your Country.What are you emotionally ‘seeing’ perhaps for the very first time? What needs nurturance? Do you have the skills for it? Do you need nurturance to do the healing?

The BREXIT issues continue to unfold – what issues do Canada and the USA have in common with Britain’s need to BE ME away from the European Union? It will be interesting to hear and read, on a COUNTRY level, what comes forth between now and August 2nd. All in Divine Timing, as ever.

Blessed BE!

eVALUating our Perspective of Worth – New Moon in Taurus

Flowering Blossoms 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

May Day/Eve and Celtic Fairy Goddess Cordelia…

May Blossoms 2016

May Blossoms 2016

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

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

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

Apple Blossoms 2016

Apple Blossoms 2016

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

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

Last QTR Moon phase in Aquarius

Last QTR Moon phase in Aquarius

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

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

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

New Leaf Growth 2016

New Leaf Growth 2016

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

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?

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!

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!
