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?

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

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

Let me Think on That

Let Me Think on That…

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

Blessed BE!

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

Gibbous Moon in Capricorn…And YOD Activation…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hollyhocks at Cedars Villa Extendicare 2016

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

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

Mercury + North Node in Virgo…

DSC03967

Today Mercury, planet of communication and self talk, meets up with the North Node, or Dragon’s Head – the intended Soul direction to head into – both sitting at 12 degrees of Virgo.

What direction are you heading into today, mindfully? And is your mind guided by your Ego/brain or by your heart? The Lion’s Gate Portal connection is open today too. Coincidence? I think not. Heartfully connect Within today…

BE aware of where you are heading forward, aligned with your Soul’s Intention, via your heart-centred knowingness.

Are you HERE, in the moment and in the Now? If not, where are you? In the past with regrets or in the future full of fear of the Unknown?

Nose Hill Park Vistas July 2016

Sit a while, BE in the Moment with Self and Higher Self and your guides and angels – whomever you deem to be guided by. Find your breath, relax into your Inner You. Breathe slowly in and out, and in and out…

Ask to hear or see or just know the Divine message(s) pouring forth from Sirius via Orion’s Belt stars and the Sun in Leo – all aligned today – bringing YOU what you need to know (Mercury) right now.

Believe in your Self wisdom. Believe in your Inner knowingness. Listen to your intuition. Then take action.

Connect with your Heart of hearts, and feel the Love you have for yourself. BE in that Love, and nurturance, from the Divine.

Know that you are not alone. That you are supported, guided, loved and Beloved. Say HI to loved ones who have already passed over. Have a conversation with your Higher Self. Chew the fat as the saying goes…

Prairie Wildflowers 2016

We are all learning to lead via the heart by receiving. What exactly are you receiving today? Be mindful yet heartfelt about it. Allow what comes to come. No judgement. Could by just a feeling of peace. Simple.

The ‘Summer of Storms’ seems to be ongoing. No Sun in Leo for us today here in Calgary. We will feel it via our hearts. We will share it by the warmth of our smiles. And the Soulful love from our eyes. Be in your moments, be aware of how you feel, what you think, and what you wish to create in your Life.

Perfection (Virgo) is already Within you. There is no need to DO it / BE it more or better. You are already there. Let Go of the Old Habits of NEEDING to BE Perfect, every moment of the day! This is the Shadow of Virgo. We are currently undergoing the Crescent Moon phase – a time of Light coming to take away the Darkness our Egos reside in.

What enLIGHTenment is required for your Ego-Self this Moon cycle? The Crescent Moon phase heralds the Inner struggle between the Old way of DOing/BEing with the New way that is showing itself, within the growing Moon’s Light. Allow yourself to ‘see’ what needs to stop struggling, to surrender, and BE in the Light – of this Crescent Moon that began at 29 degrees of Virgo (!), Sun in Leo, Mercury + North Node in Virgo. Let go of the NEED to BE Perfect! You already ARE.

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.

DSC04629

Nose Hill Park July 2016

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.

DSC04646

Thistle, Nose Hill Park July 2016

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.

DSC04616

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.

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.

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!

Co-Creative, Heartfelt Leadership – New Moon in Leo!

DSC04664Hi Everyone! It’s been quite the ride with the weather during the last Moon cycle – huge thunderstorms here in Alberta, with either driving rain and/or hailstones and wind, with flash floods. Fort McMurray, in northern Alberta, experienced first the horrific forest fires in May, and just this weekend flash flooding due to 75″ of rain in one fell swoop! Too bad the rain didn’t manifest back in May to belay all the damage and destruction. Quite the example of masculine then feminine elemental energies there to balance everyone, and thing, out up there. It will be interesting to see what this natural re-balancing creates in their future!

Today’s New Moon in Leo brings a more sedate energy – fire that is fixed – so we truly are in the middle of the Summer season and weather. “The lazy hazy dog days of summer” – named by the Ancients in Egypt who realized, when the Sun entered the fire sign of Leo at some point in August, it also aligned with the fixed Dog Star of Sirius, lining up with the three stars of Orion’s Belt AND the Sphinx down here on Earth! This timing in 2016 is on August 8th – the Lion’s Gate Portal – embracing the Cosmic HEART energies into your life! This will occur while we undergo the Crescent Moon phase. A lot of what I write about herein is setting us up for the two Eclipses we’ll be experiencing in September. So BE mindful, heartfully and intentionally, this Moon cycle, of what you WISH to manifest for you these next 3.5 years of Life Experience…

What does this mean for you and me? Read on..you’ll ‘see’ a theme and pattern here…

DSC04656

Fiery Sunset AND Thunderstorm!

As I write this post, the Sun and Moon came together as the New Moon as of 2:44p MDT at 10 degrees of Leo 58′ (so close to 11 degrees!). Where is Leo in your birth chart? This is the focus for all of us, any or all of the following, to experience, avoid, be denial of (your choice!):

  • Love and Romance: what do either of these concepts MEAN, heartfully, to you? What is your heartfelt INTENTION around these subjects, FOR your Life now and 3.5 years into the future? Remember: with Leo – we are either coming from the HEART (love), or we are coming from the EGO (mind) – are you showing up whole-heartedly or just mindfully without heart? Interesting…
  • CREATIVITY: here we learn not only to CREATE our Life IN the NOW moments (not the past nor the future), we also LISTEN with our Hearts as to WHAT IT IS I WISH TO CREATE! Do you know what you wish MORE of and BETTER, FOR YOUR LIFE, now? How well are you listening to YOUR inner wisdom space, hearing the voice of your Higher Self/Creative Self? Thank you Oprah and Deepak Chopra for creating such an awesome and magical 21-day challenge with this theme, for the rest of us to grasp and incorporate into our lives! I’ve been blogging about this for several years now – and they have CREATED a hands-on practice that is easy to follow and incorporate into your own life – if you so choose! What we create (positive and negative) comes right back to us – via circumstance, people, relationships – you name it! If you want BETTER – BE positively HONEST with yourself – emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually – then you will show up honestly with Others. And on and on – the ripple effect is amazing! Trust me…
  • Generosity: how are you sharing yourself with others? Is it in a balanced, equal give-and-take way? By standing in your power, empowered, creating a win-win for everyone involved? If not, why not? Another sign of victim-rescue-bullying of the Drama Triangle otherwise…or martyrdom if you aren’t coming from an empowered place within…is it time for you to let this go yet?
  • Celebration with Fun & Play/Children’s Energy: watch a child at play – imagination abounds, glee and joy at just the PROCESS of creating something out of nothing! Return to the wonderment and joy of BEing a dynamic creative and fulfilled BEing of Light that you are! Truly yes you are. So am I. Every moment of the day…and CELEBRATE each glorious sunrise and sunset, the NEW creative day ahead, and then write about it in what I call my CELEBRATION Journal (used to be the Gratitude Journal up until this year). My friend Julie in Vancouver Island suggested we both think of it as a CELEBRATION now, which is MORE than just Gratitude…
  • Determination: allowing yourself, once you KNOW what your WISHES are to CREATE in the moment, to envision these wishes WITH heartfelt INTENTION, determined to ‘see’ it come to fruition within your Life! Without limitations or restrictions or second-guessing…allow your vision to fly up to the Cosmos like a balloon, filled with ALL of your heartfelt wishes and dreams and intentions – that are HEARTFELT, not of Ego-mind origin! There is a difference.
  • Tempering Arrogance: this one we all have issue with – as Human Beings – we cannot live down here on Earth without the Ego (or the Monkey Mind that likes to assist the Ego) to resist change, BE RIGHT/self-righteous, MY way is the BEST because it JUST IS! Etc etc etc…this is all coming from Ego not the heart with Loving kindness, compassion, forgiveness and on and on…do you ‘see’ the difference?
  • Leo Rules, Physically: the back and spine (having the backbone to support your own wishes/dreams of your Truest Self), exhaustion/heat exhaustion (burning the candle from both ends – why?), the HEART! And Inflammation of any or all these areas means you haven’t been listening to your physical body’s needs! This Moon cycle, if you aren’t paying proper attention to yourself, your needs, your physical body’s needs, then any of the areas I’ve already mentioned will be ‘talking to you’ via pain, discomfort etc. If they do, TALK to those areas of your body – ASK them what it is they NEED from you, heartfully, lovingly, and provide it. Don’t ignore it…
DSC04642

Alberta Roses in Bloom on Nose Hill

Coming from a HEARTFELT place WILL MELT negative issues you may encounter/experience this Moon cycle. Invite yourself AND others INTO your heart. Create peaceful solutions, together. Co-creating spaces – all themes I’ve been blogging about since 2009! To push us all along to this end, we will also experience the following:

  • A YOD, the Finger of God, points directly at the Sun/Moon aka New Moon in Leo position, as of today! The two planets that require each of us to LET GO of OLD PATTERNS OF CONDITIONING this Moon cycle, who create the base of this formation, are Pluto Rx (retrograde, inner-directed and therefore personalized transformational energy) within Capricorn (how we look at and expect material gain in our lives, plus focus on reputation, the public aspect of self, goals we set for ourselves for long-term gain) – how do you EMPOWER yourself, create win-win situations vs. power and control struggles Within and Without? Then there are BOTH Neptune Rx and the North Node Rx in Pisces – both are personalized (taking things personally, BEing hypersensitive about it, for a reason!) AND directed to make us ‘SEE’ in ourselves – HOW are you IMAGINING a BETTER and GREATER world/life for yourself despite what came before now for you? OR, are you still stuck on that Old Drama Triangle (from the Old Age of Pisces) of “I’m a Victim, Rescue ME!” Or “I feel Persecuted/Bullied! Help me! DO THIS FOR ME!” Or, “I cannot stand my Victim position, so I’ll just go out there and RESCUE someone else instead!” The latest version of this Drama Triangle we are all dealing with in 2016 has been MARTYRDOM – “I’ll do this on behalf of the rest of the family, the company, the world even! And no matter how much it hurts, or harms, or kills me, I will not refrain from the challenges!” Or words to that effect…thoughts, feelings, behaviours, habits…just saying – we are ALL undergoing rapid changes Within to LET GO OF THESE attitudes and beliefs from our collective past lives we lived within the Age of Pisces. The MORE you LET GO and begin to IMAGINE a magical, creative Life of wonderment and joy that your Soul envisions for you, the sooner you’ll EMPOWER yourself to BE more in the Now, leave the past in the past, and the future to the Unknown, AND empower all of those you interact and relate to daily, in turn! BE the change, BE the peace, BE the love, BE the Co-Creator of YOUR LIFE! This is what LEO and the New Moon are signalling for us now.
  • Grand Trine in Water: this is interesting, very interesting. Three of the Asteroid Goddesses (Juno – Sacred Marriage – in Scorpio + Pallas Athena – Warrior for Equality – in Pisces + Vesta – Home/Hearth/Sexuality with focused intention – in Cancer) within the element of water (feminine gifts of feelings, emotions, intuition, insightfulness, symbols, and allowing yourself to receive all of these) are connected via love lines with one another. How are you allowing yourself to receive any or all of the above, for you? Then honestly stay with it all, deal with it all, forgive and move on, lovingly, with self and others? Huge AHA! moments, watershed moments to come, if you’ve been doing your Inner Self work up until this New Moon. If not, well, could seem like a tsunami hit, all at once. Be aware, BE in the moment, and know we are all undergoing this too! None of us are alone. Ever.
  • MERCURY! Yep, twill be the last and 3rd round of Mercury Rx (retrograde) coming up for us! Hooray! I love this timing, I find information I didn’t know I needed to know (depends on the sign Mercury is travelling through within my chart) AND in Virgo – Mercury (and VENUS!) are setting us up for the upcoming Solar Eclipse in Virgo September 1st (action we’ll take for the next 3.5 years of Life Experience on whatever we decide upon between now and then). A chance for do-overs in conversations, thoughts, ideas, decisions – this is Mercury Rx. HOW we communicate and what we CHOOSE to talk about. Interestingly, Mercury rules Virgo! So yes, we’ll BE in our minds a wee bit. The pre-Mercury Rx Shadow period begins August 10th, with Mercury finally Stationing Rx as of August 31st, then BEing Rx until September 21st (Autumnal Equinox timing!), Stationing Direct again September 22nd, and the post-Mercury Rx Shadow will continue until October 6th. REMEMBER: look at this period as a chance to ‘see’ what you’re saying/thinking/writing/sharing, to whom, and how, and why and when (especially your Inner Talk!), then during the actual Rx period, to whom, why and when do you feel you need to revisit that conversation or shared experience? And once Mercury is Direct again – the decisions you made between now and September 22nd, were they heartfully what you TRULY wanted/desired/ expected/wished for, or not? So again, once Direct, you have another chance to change your mind! Ensure that you keep tabs on major decisions made and when, so you can look back at this timing to ‘see’ how on track you heartfully were, co-creating with your Higher Self/Creative Self, truthfully. Allow Virgo’s Shadow need to BE perfect, to KNOW IT ALL NOW, and to BE of SERVICE beyond the call of duty (!!) to be part of your past responses. BE of Service, heartfully. Look after the health of your physical body, heartfully. BE in service to YOURSELF, creatively, lovingly.
Nose Hill Labyrinth 2016

Nose Hill Park Labyrinth with my Aries friend, Chris, leading!

And: The Leo New Moon calls for a NEW way to be a LEADER, within a team environment. How are you leading by your heart? This is totally different from “wearing your heart on your sleeve” – heartfully, Inside You, what is your motivation towards your intentions? Are you motived from your Ego/Mind or your Soul/Heart? This is the key difference. How are you leading the way, from Within, and for? What is YOUR unique gift to the world, that only you can create and share because You are YOU? Embrace your uniqueness in the world – don’t shrink from it! I will blog about Hilary Clinton, Venus’ synodic journey through Leo since August 2015 and how we women have been letting go of the old, and as of tomorrow (August 3rd) are consciously retrieving the NEW, step by step, as the powerful leaders we truly are! Stay tuned…

I’ve been actively looking for a day job for two years now – Virgo rules the daily job front, and happens to be my Rising Sign (making Mercury the ruler of my birth chart too!) and is the opposite sign to my Pisces Sun/Soul self – have I been embracing my true unique self that has incorporated ALL the experiences, and talents and skills that came along with it all, that are now reduced to my Resume? Am I truly looking for work (in addition to the Astrology, my passion and first love!) that reflects ALL of me? WHERE do I find ME in the work I look for? Interviews I had these last two years did not show the fruition of jobs because I was NOT in the right and proper frame of mind to SHOW UP authentically as ME. Sometimes we show up to BE what we think others want us to BE…we all have done this. I tell this tale to encourage all of us to BE authentic, as much as we can, in EVERY MOMENT, we can. BE honest, trust your heartfelt feelings/intuition, watch for the magic of signs and symbols in your environment that help lead you intuitively to YOUR next step, and CELEBRATE! You, yourself, your life. Always, in All Ways.

Blessed BE!

11:11:11 Cosmic Portal…

Ancient Egypt Star Chart

Ancient Egypt Star Chart

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

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

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

September Still Flowering!

September Still Flowering!

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

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!
