Reveals the "pot of gold" Within YOUR Planetary Cycles

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?

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.

New Moon in Cancer: Family Ties?

June 2016 Thunderstorm Flooding

June 2016 Thunderstorm Flooding

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Potted Dwarf July 1 2016

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

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

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

Arugula + Kale Garden

Arugula + Kale Garden

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

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

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Scorpio, November 11th..

Wednesday, November 11th is Remembrance Day for most Western countries. At 11:00 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month we’ve been remembering all those loved ones who fought and died for our freedoms since 1918, the end of the Great War. My paternal Great-Grandfather Jesse Robinson was gassed in that war and lived 94 years before he passed on. He worked as a guard for an internment camp here in Canada during the Second World War. There also were brothers of my Great-Grandmother Rose Robinson (nee Candy) who fought in WWI, one of whom died as a POW.

My paternal Grandfather, Bruce Schwager, worked in Thomasburg, ON, Canada as a mechanic, repairing all the planes that flew from Canada during WWII. I recently received two of his photo albums full of pictures he collected or took himself of the planes they worked on and the barracks he lived in.  And Mom’s elder brother, Vernon Schwager, was a Canadian Navy officer, first working on submarines on the East coast, and ended his career at CFB Esquimalt, Vancouver Island, BC as a commanding officer. They will be remembered with love.

The same day, just 12′ prior to the 11th hour, we begin another New Moon cycle, in Scorpio. At 10:48a MST, both the Moon and Sun will sit together in the sky at 19 degrees of Scorpio 01′. They are joined by Mercury, sitting at 15 degrees of Scorpio 30 minutes. Together they give all of us the opportunity to allow our psychic/intuitive flashes of insight to step up a notch or two this Moon cycle!

Scorpion of Scorpio

Scorpion of Scorpio

Scorpio is the fixed water sign, deeply passionate, its emotional depths can hide many things! It is the most private sign of the Zodiac, and people with a Scorpio Sun, Moon, Rising sign or Midheaven will naturally hold back speaking about themselves until they “trust” it is safe to do so. All of us have Scorpio somewhere in our charts – here is where you may hold back, distrust self and/or others, and deal with ongoing Ego-self fears that can be deep-seated, hidden from view, until the right TIME-ing comes along to pull back the carpet and “see” what’s been holding you back all along!

This Moon cycle also brings a YOD or Finger of God planetary formation pointing to Uranus, Rx, sitting in Aries. Here the theme is “Free To BE ME!” that’s been playing out in all our charts/lives since Uranus entered Aries March 13, 2011 (and will continue through Aries until March 7, 2019). I’ve written before about Eris, one of our newer planets, who has been closely riding along with Uranus for a while now. She adds and brings in the “apple of discord” into the mix, whereby adding to the Uranus “Expect the Unexpected” quality! Eris wants to bring harmony and peace into the equation, and being sister to Mars, she will do battle if necessary to stand her ground for the good of all. Just when you thought Life was hunky-dorry, peachy-keen, here comes Eris with her apple, to show us how our life is NOT as harmonious and peaceful as it COULD BE. Read on…

Together, Uranus and Eris are rising to the fore to equalize the following:

  1. BEing our True Authentic Selves – each of us are shedding the coats we’ve been wearing during, and since, the Old Age of Pisces in order to reveal to ourselves (and others) WHO we truly ARE in this Age of Aquarius – and ruled by Uranus! Unexpected events in our lives (and the world) over the last several years have been instrumental in that skin-shedding process. Not only are we BEing asked to BE REAL, we are also embodying our Spiritual/Soul selves for the first time, ever! Guess what House Aries rules? The 1st House of our self-identity AND physical body…need I say more? I love Astrological timing…always on time, in all ways!
  2. Gender-Roles as Feminine and Masculine – here deep within us, and AS a female or male on the outside, we all carry a mix of divine feminine power energy and divine masculine power energy. This “power” has nothing to do with “power and control” of Pluto/Scorpio and the 8th House they rule. This “power” is the Inner Knowingness of How to Receive (feminine) and When to Act (masculine) and HOW. This is what we’ve been learning about for eons. Lifetime after lifetime, as a female or male human BEing, we’ve been learning to BE comfortable in our own skins, JUST as a female or male. NOW Eris comes along, sending in her “apple of discord” to help us notice WHAT needs to change deep within to BALANCE out the inner genders in order to BALANCE out the outer traditional gender-roles we’ve known for o so long now. We are learning to BLEND our Inner feminine/masculine selves to BE one, in balance and equality.
Yod, Finger of God, Example only

Yod, Finger of God, Example only

Let’s return to that Yod formation. Uranus is the point of the Finger of God. Who’s at the base? We usually just have two planets, but because we are special (!!) THIS time there are FOUR! They are:

  • The NEW MOON! Aka the Moon and Sun, in Scorpio, bring in the emotional baggage (Moon) and shine a Light on this Moon cycle’s subject – TRUST – (via the Sun) – together assisting us all to LET GO and heal whatever Ego-self fears we’re still hanging onto that block us from Loving self and others unconditionally via TRUST. Not emotional blackmail, nor manipulation to “get what I want when I want it!” (Ego-self). More of TRUST, passion, depth of BEing, connecting to our psychic/intuitional self!
  • Mercury! Also in Scorpio, he brings our mindset, how we learn, how we communicate what we learn, how we share our knowledge, etc. Interestingly, this Moon cycle will REVEAL that which has been HIDDEN, up until now, That which we’ve not trusted self to reveal to others, out loud, in print/email/text. This is going to be quite an interesting ride, no? Remember: whatever has been HIDDEN, can mean hidden from SELF too! We will be unveiling, uncovering, recovering some aspect of Self that has been deeply buried due to past traumas/hurts this lifetime or in past lifetimes! Cool! I love past life work! I work with it all the time.
  • Last and not least, is Jupiter! In the mutable earth sign of Virgo – amplifying and expanding our usual boundaries re: HOW we wish to BE of service right now. Jupiter’s been working on all of us through this sign since August 12th, bringing LOUD signals and situations to our attention as to what IS working and what is NOT working in our lives re: BEing of service. Raise your hands if you’ve lost your job since August? Or been out of work for more than a year? Or your industry has just died (autocad work) or is in its death-throes (oil & gas)? What signs and signals have been waving their hands to get your attention re: your daily work AND how you deal with the health of your physical body? Hhhhmmm….any physical ailments talking to you of late? Just saying…

Okay, now let’s put this Yod formation together. The apex, or pointing Finger, is Uranus who is Rx (retrograde) at the moment. So his energy dives deeply to encourage inner growth to heal something we’ve been afraid to deal with, very personally. Uranus encourages authentic individuation – how do I BE my most authentic ME? Not sometimes, all the time? Look back to March of 2011 – how have YOU changed? Are you more YOU now than you were then? Take stock on this for a moment…

Aries glyph

Aries glyph

BEing in the cardinal fire sign of Aries – instinctual, acting before thinking, being natural in the physical body, all about ME, myself and I, your Inner Warrior, and Explorer that is curious enough to walk along new Inner Roads of Self. Assertive Action or Aggressive Action? Hhhmmm…there is a difference?

Now let’s look at how the Moon/Sun/Mercury in Scorpio connect with Jupiter first, then we’ll discuss how these four amigos must work together to allow old patterns of conditioning to be let go of in order to give Uranus Rx the energy he needs to BE more ME within ME. See?

The connection between the Moon/Sun/Mercury and Jupiter is called a sextile – a mini-love line asking the four amigos to work together as a team, if they haven’t learned to before now. So, emotionally (Moon) how am I feeling, and soulfully (Sun) what action do I wish to take, and mentally/mindfully (Mercury) what thoughts and words do I think/speak (AND TRUST that it is all okay to feel, act, think, speak let alone share any of this!) in order to expand and amplify (Jupiter) beyond my usual boundaries I’ve put in place before now, re: the daily work I do for others and for my physical body?

Overwhelmed yet? LOL! This Moon cycle will assist ALL of us to re-connect with our PASSION for Life, Living, Connecting, Networking, Working, Health, rather than disTRUST, misTRUST Self and/or Others! How many of you LISTEN TO and TAKE ACTION upon your Intuition? BE honest now….no matter how illogical, crazy or whatever you judge those insights to BE, they are being sent to you via your Higher Self/Spiritual aspect of YOU. Higher Wisdom, Eternal Wisdom – and you are dissing it? Hhhhmmm…

Beach Estates Park, March 2012

Beach Estates Park, March 2012

The mix of a fixed water sign with a mutable earth sign can bring MUD (water + earth mixed together) or a standstill. Aka Ego-self resistance, BIG TIME! Fixed signs are slow to change, if ever. They are also focused and able to deal with the details, and in the case of Scorpio, ALL the details it can get its hands on! LOL! Anyone know a Scorpio who can tell a short story? I laugh at myself because I have most of Scorpio in my 3rd House of communication – how many short posts of mine have you read?

Here we can get bogged down by TOO MANY details, loosing sight of the Big Picture of “what was I working on, thinking about, about to do again?” And then emotionally connect with the Ego-self’s fears to boot! Yikes! Then the earth of Virgo – needing things to BE perfect – then I’ll get it completed and handed in! Delay tactics on the part of whom again? O yes, Ego-self…

So you see how the mini-love line between all these planets may have some issues to agree to work TOGETHER? Once they DO, wonderful things will emerge this Moon cycle for you! You’ll be able to ‘see’ via your intuition or thought processes NEW directions, original thoughts (Uranus) that you never imagined before now, re: work, health, Life, etc. Yay!

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Bottom Line: get out of your own way, with LOTS and I mean LOTS of love! Love your Ego-self to death if you need to (but don’t kill it completely because we cannot live without our Ego-self down here on Earth). The more you LOVE whatever comes up for you this Moon cycle, the MORE you feed Uranus Rx in Aries – your true authentic self will show up! Yay! And rise above whatever has been holding you back before now. Uranus has been in Aries long enough for all of us to sip from the cup of courage (Aries) and BE courageous! NOW is the time to TRUST that yep, I am ready! Yep, I will take a risk and a leap of faith and Dare to BE or DO something different than I have given myself permission to do before now….breathe, breathe, breathe!

Also: both Nodes are at 00 degrees of Libra (North Node – direction our Soul beckons us into) and Aries (South Node – where we are used to BEing, or unresolved issues from our past getting in the way NOW….). The 00 degrees = NEW CYCLE – let’s DO it different this time people! Aries is a cardinal fire sign – inSPIRed action from Spirit to create something NEW. Interesting…so wait for your inSPIRation, via your INTUITION, then take ACTION towards your new YOU, LIFE, and WORK!

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Libra…

Laurie Rae AND her Mermaid Alter Ego Self!

Laurie Rae AND her Mermaid Alter Ego Self!

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

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

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

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

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

Grounded, centred Sacred Feminine Wisdom brings the following abilities:

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

Grounded, centred Sacred Masculine Wisdom brings the following abilities:

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

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

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

Growth Amongst the Riverbed, Okotoks, AB Canada

Growth Amongst the Riverbed, Okotoks, AB Canada

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

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

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

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

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

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

Heart Rock, Thanksgiving 2015

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

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

Blessed BE!

Harvest-Blood Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse…

Lunar Eclipse Paths, Google Images

Lunar Eclipse Paths, Google Images

The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox.

The Blood Moon occurs during a Total Lunar Eclipse – when the path of the Earth comes between the Sun and Moon, causing Earth’s shadow to block all the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface. According to EarthSkyNews.com, “the full moon nearly always appears coppery red during a total lunar eclipse. That’s because the dispersed light from all the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets falls on the face of the moon at mid-eclipse.”

Sunday’s Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon will cast a shadow throughout North America, therefore all of us will be able to view this eclipse, as long as we are cloudless! In Calgary, Alberta, the Moonrise will be visible at 8:11p MDT in the ESE direction of the sky. Due to our elevation, the eclipse will begin below the horizon and at the time of Moonrise, the Lunar Eclipse will be close to total already (totality is around 8:47p for about an hour). After which the eclipse becomes partial (around 10:27p MDT). Expect to view this eclipse for approximately three hours 20′. The next Total Lunar Eclipse will be January 31, 2018 and will be visible from Calgary.

Astrologically, this Full Moon will occur at 04 degrees of Aries 40′ – and will conjunct the natal Eris position of everyone born between 1919 and 1980 (who are still living!). Eris is a dwarf planet discovered in 2005, doubling the size of our solar system due to its 556-year orbit around our Sun (Pluto’s orbit is roughly half of Eris’).

Eris, known as the sister to Mars, the God of War, was the Goddess of Strife and Discord, believed to have caused the Trojan War. Her jealousy of being left out of a wedding, she threw the golden apple of discord into the gathering. In the aftermath, Paris had abducted Helena, and the Trojan War began.

Astrologically, Eris shows where and how we each struggle against injustice and oppression, defending the weak and standing up for oneself. Here we speak our truth to power, sometimes willing to resort to violence if necessary (which is the extreme of what we are seeing out in the wide world re: the wars in the Middle East).

Here we see the harsh struggle for survival, at all costs, making a stand for what one believes in. The fundamental nature of our human side is to be civilized, until we are forced to stand for what is right, against all odds. Nature is not all rosy – all creatures of the forest must struggle for survival at some point in their lives.

Eris shows us a “Crisis of Identity”, finding out who we truly are, which unfolds when in the midst of INNER discord and disharmony, revealing our true nature. Traditional roles of the past are torn asunder into more equality and harmony – sometimes to the extreme of violence (wars) which affect us physically, emotionally or mentally.

Here the goal is to create a more even Inner Feminine/Masculine sacred power balance Within and Without – aka a re-balance of gender identity. ‘Tis interesting that the discovery of Eris coincided with the onset of the Iraq war (violent struggle for resources) and during the current Moon cycle, the exodus of masses of people fleeing Syria etc seeking asylum within European countries. They all struggle for survival – some via war, others just want to live harmoniously with others. We see the darker side of humanity unfold around us, which must be acknowledged and faced in order to heal.

Eris is also the cousin to Pluto – the Great Transformer of our collective fears, greed and lust for power and control. We all must see and embrace our respective potential to BE violent from Within (verbally, physically, emotionally, mentally) AND Love this part of ourselves in order to become WHOLE. See where you harbour violent thoughts towards self and others, and Love this part of your animal – human side. A healing must be bridged now, creating an ‘AND’ in acceptance of Light and Shadow aspects of Self.

This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse will indeed BE Bloody – “seeing red” when we blindly allow all our inner angst and anger to come to the Full – yes feel it AND love it; we don’t necessarily need to ACT it out (or eat/drink it emotionally!).

As I look at the chart for this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse, I see two struggles:

  • Mars and Jupiter in Virgo in opposition to Neptune in Pisces: how we take Action (Mars) to move beyond current set boundaries (Jupiter) that keep us too safe from risks of BEing of Service (Virgo) beyond the norm (Pisces). How do YOU create an ‘AND’ between the Ego and the Soul’s version of what BEing of Service means to each? What illusions or delusions (Neptune) has gotten in the way of your true Dreams?
  • South Node, Moon and Vesta in Aries in opposition to North Node, Juno, Sun and Mercury Rx in Libra: the Me vs. We age-old struggle (and remember all of this involves the natal placement of our Eris planets, as mentioned above!). The South Node denotes unresolved issues from the past (this lifetime AND past lives), coupled with our Emotional Body issues (Moon) and how/where we place our focused attention (Vesta) re: “But it’s all about me!” This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse EMPHASIZES the NEED to create an ‘AND’ to bridge the Ego’s ME with more Soulful WE balance! Juno brings more feminine need for committed, fulfilling relationships (less inequality / injustice) willing to fight for PERSONAL RIGHTS within our relationships/partnerships. The Sun represents our Soul’s vital principle to SHINE brightly AS ME within the WE – always! And Mercury Rx brings more intuitive, out-of-the-box CREATIVE thought vs. logical into the mix. Here we have the option to CHANGE our MINDS about how we DO and BE with ALL of the above!
  • Question is: How do you marry the needs of the Ego with the larger/bigger picture of the Soul’s quest for inner growth? What IS the bigger picture within your life that needs to be SEEN and HEARD right now? What is going on, right now, in your life, LOUD and CLEAR (Jupiter) to bring your attention into a much needed healing?

What I find fascinating, within this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse chart is this: ALL the planets currently within Pisces and Aries are Rx (Retrograde)!! Meaning – personalizing the experiences of what we are each undergoing to bring more Soul growth awareness to the surface (BEing conscious of our unconscious Ego’s motivations). You can be swimming through a chaotic mix of emotions – tears and anger – (Pisces + Aries) and conversations (Libra) and the need to take instinctual action (Aries). Which and when and how and with whom?

Beach Estates Park, Nanaimo, BC, Nov 2011

What is also fascinating is that ALL four elements are included this time: earth/Virgo + fire/Aries + water/Pisces + air/Libra. Two mutable signs (wanting to go with the flow) vs. two cardinal signs (the much-needed CHANGE to BE will be initiated somehow).

Enjoy Sunday’s Total Lunar Eclipse; BE aware of YOUR Inner Shadow as the Earth’s shadow colours the Full Moon. “See the Red” within yourself, allow all the emotions and words and actions to surface WITH intuitive THOUGHT before Action (!!). I love ‘seeing’ how quiet it is during a Lunar Eclipse – notice how the animals are quiet, as well as humans – during the complete cycle of this particular Supermoon/Blood Moon. Then notice all the activity and noise after it is completed!

BE aware; DO action with this awareness. BE ME within any WE. Always, in all ways. This is indeed a Divine Timing experience, and opportunity to “see” yourself more clearly, Divinely, lovingly.

Blessed BE!

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo…

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

– Author Unknown

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

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

Solar Eclipse - Partial

Solar Eclipse – Partial

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

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

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

Dragon's Head & Tail

Dragon’s Head & Tail

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

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

Fall Colours 2014

Fall Colours 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Pisces Today…

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

Almost Full Moon Aug 28, 2015

Almost Full Moon Aug 28, 2015

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

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

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

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

Gibbous Moon & Orb Aug 28, 2015

Gibbous Moon & Orb Aug 28, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1st QTR Red Moon Aug 24, 2015

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

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

Almost Full Moon Aug 2015

Almost Full Moon Aug 2015

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

Blessed BE!
