Reveals the "pot of gold" Within YOUR Planetary Cycles

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!

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

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

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

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

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

September 18, 2015 Roses still!

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

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

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

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!

Full Moon in Taurus…Part II

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

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

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

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

Wee Daisies in October!

Wee Daisies in October!

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

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

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

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

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

Sheep River finds, October 2015

Sheep River finds, October 2015

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

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

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

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

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

Same Sunset Sky, different direction

Same Sunset Sky, different direction

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

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Taurus…Part I

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

Okotoks, AB Canada October 2015

Okotoks, AB Canada October 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Green in October! Yay!

Green in October! Yay!

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

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

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

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

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

Fresh Green in October

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BLESSED BE!

Mercury Rx in Libra!

Yes, ’tis that time of year again, round #2 for 2015, where Mercury (our planet of communication, learning, thought processes and inner talk) seems to go Rx (Retrograde) or backwards.

Mercury - Communication

Mercury – Communication

Energetically and Astrologically, this means Mercury is taking a vacation from all that logical, left-brain thinking, and moves into the right-brain of creative outside-the-box intuitive guidance and expansion. Moving with the flow rather than the step-by-step logic dance. This is going to be interesting with all those planets in Virgo (the other sign Mercury rules) right now – Virgo loves loves loves to know the rules of engagement in a straightforward way. Yikes! If you feel like your mind is going sideways, this will be why…

In 2015 Mercury’s Rx dance is making a stop within each of the Air signs. In the Spring he was in the mutable sign of Gemini (the sign he rules) and as of September 17th until October 9th, he will be traveling backwards through the cardinal sign of Libra.

Here we connect on a one-on-one basis with someone we deal with closely – be it a friend, loved one, partner (business or personal), co-worker or client. We have a chance to share personal information with one other, not in a group. Libra brings equal face-time, balance, harmony, peace and love. ‘Tis the scales of justice/law – what is fair and equal for all involved? This is the “getting to know you” stages of conversation. You as your own individual will meet with me as my own individual and together we will get to know one another – as deeply as we both feel comfortable to do so. There may only be one meeting/chat or an ongoing meeting of the minds over a long space of time. In other words, Libra shows us the way into long-term relationships/partnerships, over time, as long as we keep the communication channels open, honest and fair.

Let’s run this through in more detail:

  • The actual Rx timing will be September 17th until October 9th. About 21 days is usual.
  • The actual Rx coordinates within Libra will be going backwards from 15 degrees Libra 54′ to 00 degrees Libra 56′. Check your birth charts to see what area of your life this will be activating.
  • The pre-Rx Shadow timing began August 28th when Mercury was at 00 degrees Libra 56′. This is when we started to see HOW we will learn about inter-personal chitchats, how well we are already doing with them, and where we need to work on our social skills!
  • In today’s social media world, social skills are somewhat disjointed and odd, not always engaging people face-to-face, in real time, with real people! A new skill to learn for some generations of people! This will be interesting.
  • The post-Rx Shadow timing will be October 9th until the 24th, when Mercury comes back over the through the degrees to where it was when it first turned Rx, namely 15 degrees Libra 54′.
  • In other words, the conversations, book-reading, learning, thoughts you had from August 28th until September 16/17th will be going through a review – a do-over if you will – to go back over decisions, thought-processes, comments, ideas not shared, issues not aired or resolved, with significant others. Hhhhmmm…interesting…
Planetary Rulerships & Relationships

Planetary Rulerships & Relationships

During the actual Rx timing (September 17 – October 9) we will see more Unexpectedness in how we heard the conversation, read the email, or figured out a relationship solution. We may get it wrong OR we may ‘see’ deeper into the problem/issue to find a better solution than when Mercury was Direct. Here lies the beauty of Mercury Rx – thinking outside the box AND listening to our INTUITION more – and in Libra – regarding our personal/business relationships and partnerships. Yay! A review of how well we interact with significant others, show up as our true authentic selves, AND share ourselves with that Other, fully. Not hiding shyly on the sidelines.

During Mercury Rx timings we all have the opportunity for do-overs, revisit conversations, issues, concerns etc. to have that conversation yet again, with more courage to truly say our piece, with love and honesty and perhaps diplomacy. If we don’t speak up, how will others know we have concerns? If my needs aren’t being met in a relationship, how do I voice them? What do I say, and when and how? Mercury Rx in Libra will give you THREE opportunities to do so! The first time was within the pre-Rx Shadow period; the second is during the Rx period; the third is during the post-Rx period.

All Rx periods bring the energy of Mercury deep within us, to contemplate, look for more information, share ideas and thoughts, dig deeply for more honest responses – you get the picture!

My good friend Rebecca in Chemainus, Vancouver Island, 2012

My good friend Rebecca in Chemainus, Vancouver Island, 2012

Since Mercury rules Gemini, the other areas that keep coming up within a Rx period are the following:

  • Communication snafus – you thought you had sent that email or added the attachment or cc’d everyone – but didn’t…mis-spelling, typos etc. will abound! Look over your work at least two or three times, please! Ask me how many typos I’ve had while writing these last two posts?!
  • Cellphones, landlines, emails, computer glitches, fax machines/printers/scanners – any information/communication-related technology will show up to tell you how WELL they are working, or not!
  • Cars today have computers running them now, and guess what? Any electronic/electrical issues could show themselves during a Rx timing…just saying…so if you have recently purchased a new or used vehicle, Mercury Rx is a great way to find out how well it is put together and maintained! Yay!
  • Social Plans plans plans – they will go sideways – end of. Here is where the flexibility of thinking outside the box will come in useful. Long line-ups, traffic tie-ups – all good! It means it is time to take a break from running around like a chicken with its head cut off, and possibly, the other person you will be meeting is running late, so relax, look around, chat with the peeps in line, listen to the radio for a change. Or just BE…
  • Signing on the dotted line re: contracts (legal and otherwise) – here is where your intuition comes into play. If something is niggling you that something is missing, or not quite right, ask for more time to look things over. Have a third party take a look too – another pair of eyes can make all the difference! Indeed sign the contract – only if you FEEL 100% okay in doing so. Otherwise, delay it as much as possible! The first time Mercury was Rx in 2015 was when I was hired to work for a gal in financial planning, during her busiest time of year. Yikes! After Mercury Rx had completed and she finally had the time to deal with my paperwork of being hired etc., I already knew that job was NOT for me, and I handed in my resignation. I was glad to experience the reality of how sideways that job could go, and whether or not I wanted to live with that on a weekly basis. Obviously not…
  • Excellent time to cull paperwork, clean out garages, desks and cupboards – Fall cleaning! Recycling, reusing or re-purposing – all unnecessary items in the house and office – yay!
  • Speaking of paperwork – you know those times when you just canna wrap your brain around legal documents or other such paperwork – making the right decision about whatever it is? Mercury Rx timing gives all of us an extra hand to finally ‘see’ that light bulb of AHA! moments when the clarity finally finds its way through the jargon – yay! You will know better what decision YOU need to make and next steps to take.
  • Receiving information you didn’t know you needed to know! Yes! Making unexpected connections with real people who just happen to know so-and-so who can help you with…This is why I love love love Mercury Rx – Unexpected gifts of knowledge, conversations, new relationships (and even former friends and colleagues from times past show up again) and connections abound – if you are OPEN to it!

There is one more item to note: Libra is a CARDINAL air sign, meaning we initiate something NEW into our lives that we didn’t allow or even think possible before now. Think back to August 27/28th to now – what have you already done NEW re: your close one-on-one relationships? I have reconnected with distant cousins, and friends from Vancouver Island, and figured out new ways to network for business partnerships. You?

Imagine what else will show up during the Rx timing that will zero in on the gaps within your conversation style, how you negotiate having your needs met within friendships, marriage, and all other partnerships. It is yet another level of inner-growth that Mercury gifts us three times a year! Embrace it and enjoy the ride! I look forward to your comments below during this timing – all the weird and nutty jigs and jags that brought you exactly where you were heading all the time, whether your logic brain knew it or not!

Blessed BE!

Shadow Sides of Pisces, Aries, Libra and Capricorn…

Shadow & Light March 2015

Shadow & Light March 2015

Why am I speaking of the Shadow side of Pisces, Aries, Libra and Capricorn today? Because Saturday’s Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse brought UP and OUT (aka ‘outed’ us all) key Shadow work still to ‘see’ and heal. This was facilitated by Pluto’s movement through Capricorn.

During the latest Full Moon phase the SUN sat at 14 degrees of ARIES (interestingly, Fire + Fire elements), the MOON sat at 14 degrees of LIBRA (Water + Air elements) in opposition to each other, exactly. The other character, PLUTO, was sitting at 14 degrees of CAPRICORN (Earth element). What they all have in common is this: they each represent one of the 4 CARDINAL points or signs of Astrology – heralding the BEGINNING of a new season (hence why Cardinal signs signify CHANGE, New Initiatives, New Starts in our lives).

Aries begins Spring; Libra begins Fall; and Capricorn begins Winter. Two Equinoxes and one Solstice. Two areas that required BALANCING/EQUALITY to create an AND in our lives, in order to allow us to dig DEEPER into that long-winter’s NIGHT of how we reach Material Gain in this New World post-2012….cool!

T-Square to Pluto from Moon opposing Sun April 4, 2015

T-Square to Pluto from Moon opposing Sun April 4, 2015

In order to REACH this T-Square connection (visualize the Sun in Aries in opposition to the Moon in Libra, BOTH squaring up to Pluto in Capricorn – the apex of this triangle or T-Square formation) all of us, respectively, needed to somehow LIVE in the shadow of some aspect of ourself this past weekend – and I mean really LIVE in it. Got cozy with it, allowed it to become LOUD enough to catch our attention. So whatever you found yourself doing (or not doing) Saturday during the 28-days-worth of Moon energies via the Total Lunar Eclipse, THAT was EXACTLY what you were MEANT to be DOing to keep your Ego Mind distracted from the real work going on behind the scenes….

The fire of the Sun within the Fire of Aries – the Sun rules Leo, which represents SUSTAINED Fire, and the Aries Fire is QUICK, INSTINCTUAL, not lasting very long. Aries wants to take action via leaping before thinking; Leo wishes to take long action in order to CREATE something New….and to me the Sun in our birth chart represents our SOUL self. This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse with the Sun IN Aries brought forth that which we only ‘see’ within ourselves for a short time, yet is required to CREATE something NEW our Soul self needs now and in the future.

The air of the Moon portion of the Full Moon phase lay in Libra which brings in BALANCE and EQUALITY through Thought, Conversation, Interaction with someone significant in our life. Remember the Moon represents our Emotional Body via feelings and intuition and those hits of Insights from our Higher Self/BEings/people mirroring that which we need to see about Self.

Emotionally, where were you in your head? What triggers occurred for YOU this past weekend that perhaps totally freaked you out? Perhaps wanted you to ESCAPE (Pisces Shadow) BACK to where you WERE before this MOON CYCLE began March 20th @ 29 degrees of Pisces? Remember: 29th degree = LET GO OF SOMETHING this month….

Okay – so we have something INSTINCTUAL (Aries) that wants to assist our Soul (Sun) self to CREATE over the next 6 months to 3.5 years (due to the Eclipse energy). We also have the NEED to communicate (self-talk and with others) in an EQUAL face-time way (Libra) that somehow rebalances the beauty of our Emotional Body (Moon, at the Full Moon stage) – via the SHADOW of the Total Eclipse – bringing forth OUR SHADOW SELF – that which we usually reject out of hand in a blink of an eye….sound familiar?

Post-2012 we are are ALL learning to CREATE an “AND” world – no longer this or that, black or white, male or female, light or dark. ‘Tis this AND that, black AND white, male AND female, light AND dark – do you see what I am saying here? IT IS BOTH – AT THE SAME TIME.

The KEY transformation (PLUTO) is for us to SEE and EMBRACE our Shadow Self (Moon) AND our Divine Self (Sun)- see both/all sides of our selves – with Integrity, Responsibility, building a NEW solid FOUNDATION down here on EARTH (Capricorn). Once we begin to understand the ‘AND’ portion of living post-2012, we also begin to EMBRACE all of ourselves, all of the time.

The Shadow of Pisces brought our attention to WHERE the DRAMA of the Ego self is still in play within us and our lives. How does YOUR life look on the outside when it comes to drama? This is the reflection (Full Moon Illumination) of what we hold true as an Ego belief on the inside!

Knowing WHERE Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Pisces are in your birth chart shows where this heavy-duty SHADOW work resides, what we have been “outed” into between the New Moon / Full Moon (Total Solar Eclipse / Total Lunar Eclipse) phases this Moon cycle. Very cool and very timely AND very scary for the Ego self.

As an example: I have both the end of Pisces (29th degree aka New Moon placement) and most of Aries (includes the 14th degree aka Sun at Full Moon placement) within my 8th House of:

  • Shared $$$, resources, and experiences with Other Partners (be they business-related, personal, taxes owed to the government, paycheque from an employer, etc) one of the Money Houses….
  • Trust issues – emotionally, physically, psychically – in exchange of money, things, work, intimacy…and the EXCHANGE includes Giving / Receiving…
  • Sexuality – 8th House moves us past the 7th House of the “getting to know you” phase into the really GETTING TO KNOW you intimacy of all the dark secrets we hide from others….and self if we weren’t aware of it BEFORE we hooked up with a significant Other
  • Life-Death-Rebirth – all the questions we have around DEATH and dying…here is where both Scorpio AND Pluto naturally live – so how am I allowing myself to TRANSFORM and die off, via Shadow work healing, some Ego aspect of myself each Moon cycle (and especially this cycle due to all the Eclipse energies)? Or am I just paying lip service to it?
  • Ego Self Shadow fears…..related to ALL of these 8th House themes….and am I allowing them to die off or am I still holding onto them, tightly, dearly?

Then I have the opposite sign, Libra within my 2nd House of:

  • All the ways I allow myself to bring in INCOME, via all my senses, personal resources and skills and talents…is there just ONE way of working all my life or many ways? Am I utilizing ALL my talents and gifts or overlooking my best assets?
  • How all of this relates to my Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence, and VALUES – what do I value about work and working to make $$$ to pay my bills? How are MY Values mirrored by the people I work FOR/WITH? As well as the business itself – what do they DO that I value in my world, within this world?
  • What do I VALUE materially for MY life? What is the balance between earthly material needs vs. spiritual needs? What is my attachment to material things? And how do I honour the energy exchange, materially?
  • This House of $$ deals with our daily needs, how harmoniously I deal with them and allow others in to my life to gain what I NEED to live.
  • Creature comforts, benefits of services given and received. Owning, lending, borrowing. Identifying SELF and SUCCESS via THINGS vs. BEingness….am I of VALUE or am I only of value due to WHAT I HAVE or OWN or have BORROWED?

Then there is Capricorn – in my 5th House – currently on top of my natal MARS (taking Action, BEing Assertive, Instinctual Warrior energy and Pioneering NEW paths within myself):

  • The 5th House is ruled by the Sun and Leo in the natural wheel of the Zodiac. Here we want to SHINE somehow, CREATE something not seen before, via FUN & PLAY and ROMANCE. Our Inner Child comes out here to show us the way….as well as all children.
  • Pleasure and inner satisfaction, those inner yearning’s to BE SEEN and CREATE – to have MY Creations SEEN by Others…
  • Games, entertainment, gambling, sports, how we win or lose, how we DRAMATIZE our lives.
  • Popularity vs. hero worship vs. inner happiness. King or Queen of the Mountain; Drama Queen or Drama King.

So for me, in my life, I have SEEN the tapes and OLD messages of the traditional institutional world (Capricorn) that were still running in my Ego mind (beliefs) about what I could or shouldn’t create on my own (Aries) as a WOMAN towards material gain (Capricorn) because I wasn’t EQUAL (Libra) with my personal collection of talents and skills to BE materially wealthy (2nd House) through Others (8th House).

I was holding into, unconsciously, past life ideas and beliefs (Pisces), that BEing an independent woman in this day and age also means being LESS THAN with or without a significant partner/Other in my life. BEing successful meant LOSING something of myself in the mix (Death and dying – Pluto/Scorpio/8th House). Who knew?

I am currently going through a process of ENVISIONING a NEW reality and future for myself – and hit the wall about it all over the weekend – my Ego said STOP! I’m going no further – you cannot make me! I want to GO BACK, STAY PUT, do NOT pass GO….etc etc etc.

Most of us have ERIS in Aries (her orbit takes almost 600 years to move through one Astrological sign) and my Eris is at 8 degrees of Aries. Eris throws the apple of discord into the mix to see how we regain more harmony and balance in our lives, especially our gender-roles as females and males since 2006/07.

Bottom line here: ALL of us are rebalancing (Libra) some aspect of ourself via Ego Beliefs that no longer work in THIS world of THIS lifetime (Pisces) that in turn have prevented us from BEing our instinctual self (Aries) that takes Action for ME, ‘AND’ WITH Others (Libra) so that yes! We can HAVE successful Material GAIN and goals and responsibility (Capricorn) in our lives, as long as we EMPOWER (Pluto) ourselves to EMBRACE the Ego Shadow values, beliefs, emotions (Moon) AND the Soul Self values, beliefs, actions (Sun)…creating a more balanced (Libra) ME (Aries) in the process. Create an AND World – WITHIN – first, so that we Manifest WITHOUT.

What have YOU been DISowning so far as YOU? What Shadow parts of Self do you reject? Toss away as nonessential aspects of You? That which we reject we project AND attract to ourselves…

As Within, So Without; As Above, So Below – ah yes… we keep coming back to this simple yet deeply resonating Hermetic saying…

BLESSED BE!
