May Day/Eve and Celtic Fairy Goddess Cordelia…

May Blossoms 2016

May Blossoms 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Leaf Growth 2016

New Leaf Growth 2016

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian-style!

Oct 12, 2015 Okotoks, AB

Oct 12, 2015 Okotoks, AB

Today we Canadian’s celebrate our Thanksgiving Day, which, from the research I have done began 42 years prior to the first Pilgrim (early Puritans) Thanksgiving in New England! Interesting…

Historically, our Canadian Thanksgiving began with the completion of a tumultuous third voyage of explorer Sir Martin Frobisher, who, under the sponsorship of Queen Elizabeth I in 1578, came to North America in search of a Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean. He landed that year in what is now known as our province of Newfoundland, and formally celebrated surviving his long journey exploring this passage, and not for a successful harvest (as the Pilgrims did in Plymouth Colony 42 years later in 1620).

Fall Colours, Oct 12, 2015

Frobisher introduced to North America what his sponsor, Queen Elizabeth I, did throughout her 44-year long reign – annually marking her gratitude to be alive, a leader, protected and appreciated by Her people – via public displays of Thanksgiving from the year of her coronation, 1559, until her death in 1603. It was proclaimed a day of dancing, laughter, love and tears – the Merrie Old England depicted by the playwrights William Shakespeare and  Christopher Marlowe, and the poet Edmund Spencer, all of the Elizabethan Era.

In 1578 Frobisher and his men brought this Elizabethan mindset with them, and succeeding immigrant groups to what is now Canada did the same:

  • The French, via explorer Samuel de Champlain, who founded what became New France and Quebec City, in 1604, celebrated all of this via Thanksgiving feasts;
  • After the Seven Years’ War ended in 1763, when New France was handed over to the British, Halifax citizens feasted their Thanksgiving;
  • The Loyalists from America, colonist survivors of the American Revolution (1775-1783), who remained loyal to England, brought the American customs of Thanksgiving to Quebec and Nova Scotia – the turkey, squash and pumpkin pie;
  • Lower and Upper Canada observed Thanksgiving on different dates in 1816, celebrating the end of the war between France and England;
  • In 1838, Lower Canada used Thanksgiving to celebrate the end of the Lower Canada Rebellion. Thereafter Thanksgiving was celebrated six times from 1850 to 1865 as they merged into a united Province of Canada.

The first Thanksgiving Day after Canadian Confederation was observed as a civic holiday on April 5, 1872 to celebrate the recovery of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) from a serious illness. For many years prior to November 6, 1879 (when it was finally declared a national, rather than religious, holiday) Thanksgiving Day was celebrated either in late October or early November.

In 1957 Thanksgiving Day was officially declared to be the second Monday in October. The theme changed each year to reflect on an important event to be thankful for.

What I found fascinating whilst researching all of this is the ROOT of the difference between the Canadian and American versions of their respective Thanksgiving Day:

  • Sir Martin Frobisher sailed to North America in 1578 under sponsorship of Queen Elizabeth I, and brought with him Her version of what Thanksgiving meant – surviving her half-sister Queen Mary’s repeated efforts to kill Her (Elizabeth) and then successfully reigning for the next 44 years thereafter, whilst bringing further employment, progress and wealth to the country that had suffered greatly under her half-sister “Bloody Mary” (who wanted to end the Reformation, to reform the Church of England to full communion with the Church of Rome) and previous to that, her father King Henry VIII’s English Reformation (reforming movements of Erasmian, Lutheran, Reformed, and the Church of England – which displayed similarities with Roman Catholicism) which morphed into Calvinism (and Evangelical reform) under his son, Edward VI’s reign (prior to “Bloody Mary’s” reign).
  • The Pilgrims were Separatists, emerging during Elizabeth I’s reign (she had been raised as a Protestant, and attempted to make England Protestant without alienating the Catholic population who had supported Mary – aka the Elizabethan Religious Settlement in 1559) by separating from the Church of England in the late 1580’s. By 1606, due to social hostility and fear of future persecution, this group left England for Amsterdam, then by 1617 wanted to move to where they could still retain their English identity, so in 1620 landed in the US state of New England at Plymouth Rock. This Plymouth Colony later experienced tensions between the Indians and previous New England colonists, turning into the deadly conflict called King Philip’s War. In 1620 the Pilgrims gave their first Thanksgiving for a successful harvest by befriending and cooperating with the Indians in order to learn how to survive the coming winter.
  • The Puritan Movement came about in the 1560’s, for further reform of the Church of England (aka Anglican Church). From the 1560’s to 1570’s, Calvinism also came into being. In this pro-Protestant, anti-Catholic environment, the Puritans pushed for more reforms on the Church of England via the Admonition to the Parliament, setting off a major controversy in England.
  • King James VI of Scotland (Queen Mary’s son) who took the throne after Queen Elizabeth I’s death in 1603, had been raised in the Presbyterian Church in Scotland, which looked broadly like the type of church the Puritans wanted in England. In 1604 they held a conference (the Hampton Court Conference) with the King to discuss their issues. He agreed to some reform, not wholly. By 1623-1624, King James viewed the Church of England to be a mix or middle way between Protestantism and Catholicism. It all went downhill from here, hence the rather large immigration of Puritans from England to New England between 1630-1640. The Puritans had believed the Anglican Church needed to be purified of the influence of Catholicism. When England’s rulers refused to make these changes, the Puritans felt they needed to live elsewhere.

What are we learning here? Freedom to pray as one wished AND thankfulness of having survived – be it exploring uncharted waters/country, immigrating to a new country and learning how to “weather” the extreme elements and original occupants, or the end of a war, with renewed Peace and Prosperity.

I find it fascinating to look back in history to the roots of the beginnings of our two countries who share a Thanksgiving Day and a continent, yet do so for different reasons and in different months of the year.

What are YOU grateful for today, and give THANKS for? How do you show this during these annual feasts? Sharing your table and bounty with family, friends, strangers? By yourself? Ignoring it completely?

I am most grateful to what is left of my family, to the family who have departed us, and to the work I am gifted to share with my clients, students, and strangers to Astrology (which is not a religion)! I give Thanks for the health of my physical body, how I continue to Keep on Keeping On despite my struggles, and to all my Soul Family – those Earth Angels who have shown me, and my family, their support these past two years especially.

Returning to our Roots has the distinct similarity to Returning to Basics: remember WHY you are doing WHEN you are doing, while BEing all at the same time. Explorers and people fleeing wars or religious persecution of the distant past – coming full circle to watching it all unfold yet again in the Middle East – interesting what goes around, comes around. In ways and means we would never imagine in the moment of Action we take to BE FREE to BE ME (Uranus in Aries since May 29, 2010) in the here and now.

Blessed BE!

Grand Trine of Fire Activations

New Moon / Solar Eclipse Rainbow Sept 13, 2015

New Moon / Solar Eclipse Rainbow Sept 13, 2015

Yesterday, September 20th, the Moon activated (the first of the three points) of the planetary formation called a Grand Trine (triangle) in Fire signs that was already in this New Moon cycle’s chart. The Fire element is all about inSPIRed Action – In Spirit action – to create something new in your life, coming from your Spiritual Body of yourself.

As the Moon transits through the signs, via its phases, it triggers the activation of inSPIRed action within you. Yesterday the Moon conjuncted Pallas at 18 degrees of Sagittarius, which in turn activated the Grand Trine formation connecting Pallas to Uranus Rx in Aries and Venus in Leo. Look at your birth charts to see where the mid degrees of these three fire signs reside. This is where in your life you will feel inSPIRed to take action towards your Life Purpose (Sagittarius), Free to BE ME (Aries), and to Create something and lead with it (Leo).

Grand Trine formation

Grand Trine formation

Today at 3:00a MDT we entered the 1st QTR Moon phase @ 28 degrees of Sagittarius, 04′ – conjunct the Galactic Centre! This means we will be receiving downloads of inSPIRation from our Galactic selves, re: our true Life Purpose down here on Earth. It may be a clarifying inspired moment, or a unifying inspired moment, or a confirmation of what you already know to be true. Sagittarius is all about our beliefs, having faith in self and our purpose of BEing here on Earth. Coupled with all the Virgo activations between the two eclipses, question is: How does your Life Purpose jive with how you are BEing of Service? Are they one and the same, or different?

We can volunteer and work our Life Purpose in that area of life, or combine the two via the work we are paid to do by others using our service or product. Pallas (Athena in Greek mythology) is one of four Feminine dwarf planets, orbiting between Jupiter and Mars. She represents Wisdom and Warrior, having sprung fully grown, and armed, from the brow of Jupiter (Zeus). She became the protectress of those in battle, using her compassionate wisdom to teach merciful justice and peaceful resolution of disputes.

Pallas is also the Patron of the Arts, giving many creative gifts to humankind, and the Goddess of Health. She represents the creative, intelligent woman using the feminine wisdom principles of receiving in equal measure to giving, via intuitive knowing and wise counsel. Pallas in your birth chart signifies how you serve or care for others, using healing techniques that integrate the mind and body (think yoga, reiki, cranial sacral to name a few) without a lot of emotional attachment. So either you are the practitioner teaching/giving these healing modalities or you actively seek them out to experience and practice within your own life.

Pallas - Athena via Wikipedia

Pallas – Athena via Wikipedia

Pallas also indicates interest in the pattern and structure of things, therefore the ability to strategize and perceive intuitively and creatively. Mercury being Rx (Retrograde) right now will assist in this intuitive/creative mindset more easily this Moon cycle, showing us how we use our right-brain vs. left-brain logical side.

In between the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse and Disseminating Moon phases – September 28th – the Moon will activate Uranus Rx at 19 degrees of Aries. Find where Uranus Rx is transiting your birth chart right now (not far behind transiting Eris!) bringing Unexpected Change into your life, via deep instinctual needs to BE ME (your true individual self vs. going along with the crowd). Uranus out-pictures with original thoughts and actions, that stem from YOUR self-identity, not someone else.

The last activation will occur October 7th, in between the Last QTR and Balsamic Moon phases, with Venus transiting at 15 degrees of Leo. Here we lead with our creative hearts, with fun and play in mind, to SHINE our desires out into the world. Venus represents our Desire Body – what we TRULY like and love, and how well we attract these things, people and circumstances into our lives. Within Leo, Venus truly brings out the Romantic Love aspect, so there can be connections created (via Mercury Rx’s socializing / partnering) of new, or the return of old, flames.

Remember, each activation of this Grand Trine automatically activates the other two arms of it at the same time. The point of activation is the root inSPIRed action, that sends out impulses to the other two areas too. Think of this Grand Trine formation as a love-line of connection between three planets that are currently moving through the fire signs, collectively asking us to trigger much-needed Soul/spiritual change AND action within our lives. Allow the creativity of these timings to unfold as they will, without controlling outcomes with expectations. Allow the gifts of the Universe to BE received as you sense how to ACT via creation.

Before I leave this post, I wanted to say OMG! with what the world has already experienced since the New Moon/Solar Eclipse began September 13th: the massive exodus of people fleeing Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq into Europe (the largest since WWII) and the 8.3 magnitude earthquake in Chile. All before the Crescent Moon phase of September 17th. It will be interesting to see what other inSPIRed changes occur within Earth and on top of it before this hyper-active Moon cycle completes itself October 12th.

Blessed BE!

Our Processes…

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo Rainbow!

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo Rainbow!

As I write this post, the following planets are still in Virgo (all about processes) with Mars and Venus soon to join them:

  • JUNO (!) – this Feminine Asteroid, who orbits within the Asteroid Belt situated between Saturn and Jupiter, I totally forgot to mention in my Virgo Planetary Pantheon post. Juno represents the Sacred Marriage, the blending together, equally, of our true Inner Feminine power energy with our true Inner Masculine power energy. We are all ONE – outwardly we may look either female or male – inwardly we are both. Within Virgo, Juno is teaching us our respective process of how we do this blend, how well we allow ourselves to receive, intuit and feel or BE (Feminine Power) AND how well we assert, take action or DO (Masculine Power) here on Mother Earth. Juno has been traveling through Virgo since July 3rd and will move into Libra as of September 23 – the day of the Autumnal Equinox.
  • SUN – continues to Illuminate our processes through Virgo, via our Soul Body or Spirit Body. Here we ‘see’ beyond the physical black and white world of old. We connect with the lessons our Soul-self wishes to gain experience within, and without.
  • JUPITER – will be moving through Virgo for yet another year (or close to) expanding our current experiences of how we do our daily processes beyond what has felt comfortable up until now. Jupiter will also amplify it all – make it LOUD – to be seen, heard and felt in ways not possible before, in order for us to embrace NEW experiences past our usual Ego-self fears of walking beyond the Known.
  • Upcoming, MARS will enter Virgo as of September 25th, and VENUS as of October 9th. They bring Assertive Action via courage (Mars) and our Desire to attract that which we truly Like and Love (Venus). This will be interesting…very very interesting.

I awoke this morning inSPIRed to write this post. We each have our own respective PROCESS in living Life down here on Mother Earth. Our PROCESS is this:

  • It is what and how we have done, learned and lived already,
  • And what and how we are currently doing, learning and living,
  • And, most importantly, what we LEARN and grow from our experiences, and then TEACH others.

This, as part of the Virgo experience, is what makes us unique from the other. We DO and BE, we show up and walk through with courage. or run away and hide/escape in fear. How we do all of this, mixing it up along the way, is OUR PROCESS! It is neither right nor wrong – IT IS WHAT IT IS.

It is our Ego-self mindset that tells us what horrible people we are because we didn’t do or say such-and-such the way so-and-so would have or did. Stop this right now! Throw out that measuring stick that you use to beat yourself up with! So very much the Shadow side of Virgo – the self judgements and critical voice (remember, Mercury, our planet of communication, rules Virgo and our inner SELF TALK too!).

Learn to LOVE your own unique process of Living Life down here on Earth, in this physical body your Soul calls Home! Embrace your Soul-self AND your Ego-self! BE All and Both. You are All and Both.

I look back to the previous two years since I returned to Calgary, having been called home to help Mom and my youngest sister deal with the fact that Dad and our middle sister were both in hospital (two different ones!) within a day of one another. Mom predicted that I would, at some point, “hit the wall” of the LEARNING CURVE that was all about the processes of grieving, dealing with our healthcare system here in Alberta, and rejoining the family dynamics I had left almost fours previous when I moved to Vancouver Island. And I did, very much so. Mom and Mich had already been living through two years of all of this prior to my catching up to them, physically. Now it was my turn to “catch up”!

Virgo is all about Learning Curves – throughout our lives we are always LEARNING something. Mercury is all about HOW we learn and think and process all the mind stuff along the way. How we discern, decide upon and reject ideas and beliefs and impulses – be they Ego-self oriented ones or Soul-self ones.

What I have learned about Virgo (my opposite sign and Rising Sign or Ascendent, therefore what I Embody as my self-identity) is that MY process, up until these past two years, was to run away as much as possible (all those Ego-self fears) and not show up consistently. What I walked into two years ago I describe as a combination of: dropping through a rabbit hole; walking through a mine-field; and navigating a maze. Totally unreal, not anything I had ever experienced before in my life, and wondering if I’d every make it out alive.

#4...

#4…

Being the eldest of three sisters, I felt I was supposed to KNOW how to DO stuff – always. Or figure it out! No matter how fearful I was, how shy I was, how unprepared I was. This is why I was such a great Temp in the work world! Drop me into the deep end of the pool and see if I swam or sunk! Swam, and then some, most times, most days.

Virgo rules the 6th House of our daily work, and how we look after the health of our physical body. Mercury, our Communication planet, rules both too. Here we are dealing with the MINDSET of our Ego-self AND what our Soul-self wishes us to experience. In equal or unequal doses, we will all experience those learning curves of Life – when we begin something new that we’ve never ever experienced before. We always have a new learning curve when we begin a new job. We are the student for a time, then eventually we master the skills and the duties that come with that job, and are then able to take on MORE responsibility and skills, or not. Depends on our PROCESS. At some point we do become the teacher, able to pass on our knowledge of what we’ve done so far. And here is the cool part: some of us are better students than teachers, some of us better teachers than students, and some of us can do both equally well. Do you see the Process within the Process?

Two years later I am able to WALK through most unexpected situations, dealing with all the peeps and circumstances with ease and grace (while also feeling anxious or fearful!) along the way. I still FEEL what my Ego-self brings to the table. I still DEAL with all the ways and means my Ego-self tries to sideline me, distract me, escape the current scene it doesn’t want to experience. Our Egos just want to stay safe and secure with the status quo. End of. Period. I now allow my Soul-self to show up more and more, with Love, Kindness, Compassion and Laughter.

#5...

#5…

Here is why I love love love Astrology! The regular cycles of:

  • Our yearly Sun moving through the seasons (and therefore our birth charts or horoscope),
  • The Moon’s monthly movement around the same, and
  • All the other planets/asteroids within our Solar System via their respective cycles –
  • They all bring opportunities, people and circumstances into our respective lives to assist us with our respective PROCESSES of showing up, DOing and BEing along the way, within our unique mix of how our Ego-Self AND Soul-Self show up to experience it all! Cool!

As all of you read this post, contemplate how well you show up to learn your Learning Curves of Your Life. Are you walking through most of the time? Are you running away? Do you do both? And when you run away, WHY? And when you show up, WHY? How do you show up? How do you run away? THIS IS YOUR PROCESS – no judgements – it IS what it IS.

What YOU learn from it, during your lifetime down here on Mother Earth, is all up to you. It always has been. We ALL have Virgo in our birth charts. We ALL have the planets and asteroids that make up our solar system. We ALL experience the opportunities the Universe (and our solar system) bring to us to experience MORE Soul-Self, learning to master our Ego-Self along the way. This is the realm of Earth-life experience that has the Universal peeps lining up to experience! Standing room only people! Believe it, or not.

BE your process; SEE your process; LOVE your process; DO your process. Experience your unique Rainbow-self! The rest is just flotsam and jetsam.

Blessed BE!

PS: If you are curious to dig deeper into what YOUR processes are, and to ‘see’ more clearly your unique combination of Light/Shadow (aka Soul/Ego) presence, give me a call! We’ll look at your horoscope together, and discover, reveal and finally UNDERSTAND the Why of Who you Truly Are! Call me: (587)-353-8085 or email: rainbowsastro [at] shaw.ca

A Pantheon of Planets/Luminaries in Virgo…

How’s it going out there? “What do you mean? Everything’s fine! I mean, it would be if so-and-so would just….or if I hadn’t taken the ring road…or if that neighbour would just…” So, how’s it been going out there these past several weeks?

For those of you who have their:

  • Sun or Moon in Virgo,
  • Virgo Rising (aka your Rising Sign) or
  • Virgo up at the top of your horoscope (Midheaven), OR
  • Sun or Moon in Pisces, or Pisces at the Midheaven/Ascendant aka Rising Sign…OR
  • Gemini/Sagittarius Sun or Moon or Rising Sign or Midheaven…AND perhaps have
  • Natal Pluto in Virgo (the Virgo Generation, born between August 20, 1957 and July 30, 1972)…this post is for you!

Virgo glyphWhy? you ask…read on…

Virgo, The Virgin, the mutable earth sign of the Zodiac (Latin for “circle of animals” by the way) rules (according to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology):

  • Processes – mental and physical, hence why it is related to daily work or the job you do in the world, and your ability to work well with others;
  • How well you organize your life, things, paperwork, your closets and drawers, details, being punctual, effective planning;
  • Discrimination – being able to analyze situations, data, people; critical thinking; your ability to focus on a project or task at hand; discernment;
  • Being of Service – how well you are able to adapt to any situation, helping others in a practical way (therefore efficient way), your pure intent of WHY you are doing what you are doing, and how conscientious you are about it all. No wonder the Virgo Generation is known for ‘getting the job done and staying the course’!
  • Synthesis – your desire for perfection (ever wonder why Virgos need to place things in a room, just so?), processing, bringing order out of chaos, and the ability to see how the pieces fit (any puzzlers in the crowd?);
  • Excessive Perfectionism (!!) – how you worry, are critical of self and others, use blame and judgement of others to NOT take responsibility for your own human mistakes, and worst case scenario we North American’s can be: workaholics!
  • Health of your Physical Body – through what you eat, how and if you exercise the body, having a good health habit plan, weight control, embracing alternative healing, and the healers that bring us these alternative modalities.
  • Health-wise – Virgo rules the bowels and intestines, constipation and diarrhea, digestion and assimilation, and the Solar Plexus chakra area (just above your belly button to below the rib cage). I mention this because these areas of your body systems will talk to you if you are unable to ‘digest or assimilate’ new ideas, beliefs or changes needed in your life. If you use emotional eating as a way to cope/not cope, guess what?
Virgo with Wheat & Fire

Virgo with Wheat & Fire

According to Vic DiCara’s Astrology, Virgo is the root form of Virgin, whose original meaning was “unmarried” and able to derive strength from within the Self, rely only on the Self without getting strength from a partner. Way back when, being a Virgin originally meant being able to educate, work and feed herself without the help of a man. Therefore not married, or living in her father’s home. She was her own person, fully, wholly and completely. Interesting…

Mercury, our planet of communication, thought processes, how and what we learn, rules Virgo and is the only planet that is exalted (held in high regard) in the sign it rules. Those of us with Virgo Rising (Virgo on the Ascendant and in our 1st House in the horoscope) will therefore have Virgo as the ruler of our horoscope.

Which means our MINDS rule the course of our lives – which can drive us crazy crazy crazy at times, especially if we are caught upon the limb of perfectionism (the Shadow side of Virgo). Here our Ego-self can play havoc upon our inner life of endlessly looking for Inner (and Outer) perfection – aka walking with that Big Stick of self-criticism to whack ourselves with, almost endlessly. Sound familiar?

Having Virgo Rising/in your 1st House also means this is part of your Self-Identity AND you also EMBODY the high sides and Shadow sides of Virgo, because the 1st House rules the physical body too. In other words: Virgo Rising persons have signed up to do double-duty this lifetime – figuring out how to allow ourselves to BE okay with our Inner imperfections AND deal with the health of our physical body, that may not be perfect in our own eyes, let alone in others. Interesting…

Before I introduce the pantheon of planets/luminaries entering Virgo in 2015, let’s return to why I mentioned Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius:

  • Pisces is the opposite sign to Virgo (and vice versa), creating a polarity within Self if we haven’t learned yet to create an ‘AND’ between these opposing sides of Self: namely, Virgo wishes to BE of Service here in the mundane world we call Earth AND Pisces wishes to transcend the Ego-self (the Little Self) to BE of Service with the Higher Self or our spiritual/divine Self. I repeat myself here – Sun, Moon, Rising Sign or Midheaven in Virgo or Pisces creates this dilemma. The only sane place to be is to EMBRACE both sides of yourself. Know that you are an eternal Divine BEing AND a Human BEing all at the same time! And for everyone else: you may or may not have planets in Virgo or Pisces, yet you still have these signs somewhere in your horoscope – so you will be affected too to some extent.
  • Gemini and Sagittarius, the other two mutable signs of the Zodiac, will sit in a square to Virgo and Pisces (90 degree angle) creating tension and stress deep within people whose Sun, Moon, Rising Sign or Midheaven are in Gemini or Sagittarius. During this time of having so many planets/luminaries entering Virgo around the same time, expect to deal with the need to make Changes and take Action of some kind to alleviate the tension and stress. These signal deeply held needs (which you’ve probably been noticing for some time now) to DO something different with either the information you seek/share (speaking up for a change rather than keeping silent?), and perhaps diving deeper into seeking a higher meaning of WHY am I here? What is my purpose this lifetime? No matter how old we are, we continually ask this of ourselves.
August & Virgo

August & Virgo

Finally, I present the ‘group of 6’ planetary/luminary characters who have already, or are about to, enter Virgo in the near future. It is significant when planets change signs, and especially when we have such a number of them doing so within a short time. It is never a coincidence which planet or luminary moves into a new sign first, followed by another, then another. The first ones lead the way, carve out the first exposure to the new themes (aka lessons) we are collectively about to learn from for our respective ongoing Soul Growth.

Here they are, in the order of appearance/dates of entry and for how long, and their respective lessons they bring:

  • Venus, our Desire Body: entered Virgo back on July 19th then turned Rx (Retrograde) going back over its path in Virgo from July 25 to 31st (and since then is back in Leo). She will re-enter Virgo in a Direct motion in October and make her way through Virgo until November. Here Venus brought us the first inklings of focusing us on what we love/like to attract more of in our lives at this time. Think back to July and ask yourself what were you deeply desiring for yourself? While Venus is Rx we will be diving deeply within, conscious or not, to truly meet up with what those desires are, then perhaps we take action on them come October?
  • Mercury, ruler of Virgo, planet of communication, thought and learning processes, entered Virgo as of August 7th and will leave it August 27th. Where has your mind gone this month? Into perfectionism, being of service in the world, wanting to make changes for the health of your body? Some or all of the above? Feel like you’ve been driving yourself crazy going round in circles trying to figure it all out NOW dammit? Breathe, breathe, breathe…other planets are coming forth to assist in the process…
  • Jupiter, planet of expansion, amplifying that which is working and not working well re: our beliefs about ourselves and why we are here, moving beyond previous restrictions and limitations we’ve put upon ourselves (or they seem to be there – are they?). Here we are challenged to HAVE FAITH and take the plunge to move through previously perceived barriers, now’s the time to CHANGE! Think back 12 years to the last time Jupiter entered then traveled through Virgo – re: work, physical health, all the themes already mentioned – what was expanded and amplified back then for you? For some of us it was indeed our physical bodies! I count myself in this group – so my focus this next year will be to get my physical body into better health and shape that I used to enjoy (and take for granted!). Jupiter entered Virgo August 11th and will travel through it until September 10, 2016! Interesting note for all Sagittarians out there: Jupiter rules your Sun sign! Ch-ch-changes!
  • Sun, our Soul self, illuminates how you Perfect the processes in your life while it moves through Virgo – from August 23rd to September 23rd. How willing are you to be SEEN whilst undergoing your respective processes (Inner and Outer)? Will you continue to hide, distract, be in denial in some regard, or will you finally show up and BE and DO what your Soul self has been wishing for you? Remember, the Sun gives us an annual chance to change our habits of self-care! What will you do this year?
  • New Moon in Virgo AND Solar Eclipse!!!!! Yikes! Here our daily habits (Moon) and the actions we wish to take (Solar Eclipse) re: the work we do, how we do it, and our health plan for the physical body will all be truly focused upon – EMOTIONALLY. The Moon (like the tides here on Earth) constantly ebbs and flows with our Emotional Body. Like the waves of the oceans and seas, we can be tossed up against the rocks or gently guided back onto solid land. It is up to us how we wish to navigate this New Moon cycle! It occurs September 13th, with the Full Moon following two weeks later, as a Lunar Eclipse!
  • Mars, taking assertive and perhaps courageous, action (rather than angry reaction). Mars journeys through Virgo from September 25th until November 12th. Do you ‘see’ how each planet/luminary sets us up for the next one coming behind it? Do you see the beauty of the cycles of our planets, Sun and Moon? They are so intelligent and in Divine Timing! I love it!

Ch-ch-ch-CHANGES A-Coming…

Change in Direction…

Change in Zodiac Sign….

Change in Elements….

We are experiencing a compliment of planetary change of Direction (from Direct to Retrograde (Rx) or vice versa) which in turn brings us either into a flurry of Activity (Direct motion = action or forward-moving action/flow) OR into a deep inner ‘seeing’ and BEing (Rx motion = going inward, deeply, to connect with ourselves on many levels) personalizing seemingly everything/one we encounter, to bring IN the tests and mirroring effects of our respective Soul journey at this time and place and space.

Our Solar System...

Our Solar System…

Neither the Sun nor Moon ever go Rx – they stay as they are, our luminaries. It takes the Sun a year to travel through the 12 signs of the Zodiac and our Moon one month. All the other planets have their cycles (time it takes for each planet to orbit around the Sun – and your birth chart!) either going Direct AND their times of seemingly Rx motion within those cycles/orbits.

When planets and luminaries (Sun and Moon) move from one sign’s element to another – here also is a change in HOW we use their elemental energies:

  • Moving from Fire to Earth: brings us from quick quick energy and action, to wanting to sit a while or deal with tangible things – hands-on…similar to when we move from Sagittarius to Capricorn just a few days prior to Christmas!
  • Moving from Earth to Air: brings us from those tedious details (housework, homework, work work) of life into socializing, relating, chatting, thinking, writing, gathering information and sharing it with our peeps…
  • Moving from Air to Water: brings us from all that Social Butterfly fluttering about to emotional feelings and intuition – feeling sensitive within and without – wanting to BE a hermit, a home-body, not out and about…
  • Moving from Water to Earth: brings us from all that deeply sensitiveness and feeling our world and way forward, into day-to-day hands-on DOing – chop wood, carry water, mundane aspects of life. And round and round we go as the cycles of Nature, Seasons and Elements continue ever on…

Here is of the list of where our planetary partners are, in their current cycles, as of this post:

  • Sun (Soul self) – is in the cardinal water sign of Cancer (at 28 degrees as of today) about to head into the fixed fire sign of Leo as of July 23rd. Going from water to fire…Wanting to BE seen, having fun, playing, BEing that Inner Child You, plus the romance in your life…
  • Mercury (communication, thought processes, inner talk) went into Cancer as of July 9th, about to go into Leo too, July 23rd too.
  • Venus (our Desire Body – what we Love and Like) moved from Leo into the mutable earth sign of Virgo as of July 19th – I will discuss what Virgo brings to the table later on in this post. And you’ll soon understand why…going from fire to earth..until November 9th.
  • Mars (assertive action) – went into Cancer as of June 25th, and will head into Leo as of August 9th. Moving from water to fire…
  • Jupiter (expansion and amplifying – current boundaries/limits to receive something Greater than we’ve allowed or dreamed before now) will finish it’s year-long journey through Leo as of August 11/12th, also moving into Virgo (going from the open-heart surgery of fire – Leo rules the heart – into mutable earth).
  • Saturn (Life structure, boundaries, responsibilities, goals) was in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius before it went Rx as of March 14th, and then retraced it’s steps BACK into the fixed water sign of Scorpio as of June 16th, sitting @ 29 degrees for several weeks, bringing us BACK into LETTING GO (29th degree) of those last vestiges of deeply-held Ego-self FEARS we are all still hanging onto. Saturn will go Direct again August 2nd (cross-quarter feast day of Lammas or Lughnasadh) heading back over the 28/29 degrees of Scorpio, to once again enter Sagittarius September 19th.
  • Chiron (healing our Inner Victim to create VICTOR) has been in the mutable water sign of Pisces since February 18, 2011 (until February 16, 2019) went Rx June 24th last month at 21 degrees and will remain Rx until November 28th when it goes Direct again at 16 degrees of Pisces. Ask yourselves this: how often have you dipped BACK into Victim rather than Victor stance emotionally? Escaping into your addictions to BE in denial, distract yourself to NOT uplift your Inner Victor self, to indulge your Inner Victim instead? Just asking…
  • Uranus (individuality, futuristic insights, Future Self) has been in the cardinal fire sign of Aries since March 13, 2011 (until March 7, 2019) and will once again go Rx as of July 26th @ 20 degrees of Aries. Remember, Uranus and Pluto were squaring each other SEVEN times since June 2012, until their last round: March 15th, 2015, bringing us all closer to BE FREE TO BE ME (Uranus in Aries) AND changes in the INTEGRITY of our respective pursuits of MATERIAL GAIN in life now. This Rx timing (lasts until December 26th when it goes Direct once again) will bring us Deeper Inwardly to REFLECT upon how well we have traveled upon our Future path towards integrity AND individuation – BEing our True Authentic Selves as much as possible, than ever before now….
  • Neptune (illusion, delusion, fantasy AND the reality of Life beyond the physical – Spiritual and Divine Self) has been in its own sign, mutable water sign of Pisces, since April 5, 2011 (until January 27, 2026) for the first time in 165 years! She went Rx again as of June 12th @ 9 degrees of Pisces and will go Direct as of November 18th @ 7 degrees. We’ve been grappling with WHERE we are still hanging onto that Drama Triangle of Victim or Rescue Me/Rescuer or Persecutor/Persecuted (a combo of each or all three!) emotionally. Pisces asks us all to TRANSCEND our Ego-self, master it, in order to give that Eternal part of ourselves, the Soul, more reign.
  • Pluto (Transforming our deeply hidden Ego-self Fears of change/trauma into healing Love) has been in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn since November 28, 2008 (until November 20, 2024) and turned Rx again April 17th @ 15 degrees, turning Direct once more September 25th @ 12 degrees. Here we are inwardly transforming HOW we do our goals and build material gain in our lives – and with Pluto therein, ‘seeing’ and healing the Ego-self fears to LET GO of ALL power and control issues (As Within, So Without). As we clean our Inner House, we ‘see’ magic happen in our Outside World with more positive and equal-footing partnerships/relationships/work options coming to us.
  • The Moon’s Nodes: the direction our Soul wishes to head into (North Node/Dragon’s Head) AND the direction our Ego is used to living within (from past lives, habits this lifetime – South Node/Dragon’s Tail) are within the first degrees of Libra/Aries, about to enter the last degrees of Virgo/Pisces as of November 12/13th NB: the Nodes move opposite in Zodiac sign direction to the planets). Do you all see a pattern showing itself? We are moving away from the FIRE into the EARTHly realms of Virgo? Read on…
Planetary Orbits...

Planetary Orbits…

I have shown all the details of past/current/upcoming dates of planetary directions AND Zodiac sign changes for a reason. Look BACK at WHEN the outer, longer-orbiting planets entered their respective signs, and ask yourself, “What CHANGES were happening within Me/outside me in my world, then?” AND with all the Directional changes now – how well you have been working in the outside world (Direct Motion) these planets MIRROR for us now; AND within the Rx timings of all these cycles, reflect INWARDLY on that journey, is there anything MORE to heal/change/transform deep within?

In other words: our planetary cycles bring MORE than just a change in sign or a Return to where they were on the day we were born. Their Directional changes also bring CHANGE – or an opportunity to turn things around, to ‘see’ more clearly/deeply that which wasn’t possible before NOW due to needing TIME to grow, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. All levels of our Bodies (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, etheric et al) will BE transformed, healed of trauma/drama at their respective Divine Timing – NOT when our Ego-self wills it to BE! Hence why we feel/think “Haven’t I already dealt with this issue in my life already?” Perhaps not – perhaps THIS TIME it is a physical healing/release whereas BEFORE it was an emotional or mental one for that SAME issue?

Fanny Bay, Vancouver Island, BC – Seals & Boats May 2013

Notice how we humans have physical health issues, mental health issues, emotional health issues, crisis of the Spirit issues? And like grief/grieving, there are STAGES we undergo – and not consecutively NOR one at a time! When ‘all hell breaks loose!’ think many stages of multiple levels of our collective Bodies undergoing HUGE growth spurt! It feels like hell on wheels at the time; it feels like we’ve been IN it for ever and ever; it feels like it will NEVER end….and then snap! we wake up to sunshine happening Inside AND Outside of ourselves. Why? What happened? How did all that pressure suddenly end? All of the above…all of the above… unending, cycling, continually, in different elements and signs, orbiting endlessly… until we GET IT! Whatever IT is/was/will be…all part of our life-long Journey here on Earth…so the longer we live, the MORE we grow…

We have several planets about to (or already have) enter the mutable earth sign of VIRGO: dealing with the HEALTH of the Physical Body and what we do on a daily basis for work (be it paid or volunteer or hobby). How we wish to BE of SERVICE in our respective worlds. The opposite sign of Virgo is PISCES – BEing of SERVICE beyond This World – spiritually, divinely. These next weeks and months will bring ALL of us insights, upsets, knowingness, intuitive hits of next action – ALL related to our Physical Body and how we WORK this Body and are in Service to its health! What past traumas of your life need to BE released from your Physical Body? What will you learn about the health and healing of it?

Virgo also brings us closer to PERFECTION – what this means to you, and how PERFECTION can get in the way of you moving forward in the service you provide for/with others. Virgo is looking at ALL the details of hands-on life, PERFECTING all the processes/rules you live by. Hence the daily work aspect – what business processes/company processes need to be perfected? Been holding off on changing your eating habits? Exercise routines? Handling the paperwork at home and in the office? Seen holes in processes that determine the strength and/or weaknesses of profit and production? The Fruits of Our Labours?

Cardinal signs = initiating new ideas, work, projects etc. Fixed signs = dealing with ALL the details to bring that work or project or idea into manifestation (the product). And the Mutable signs = brings the ability to change tack, bring in something NEW along the way (or let go of something we thought was important at the time yet is not now) AND the ability to LOOK BACK at how THIS process is working. How well did we do? Any changes to keep in mind for the next project/idea/piece of work/CYCLE? Do you see why I love love love Astrology?!

Keep in mind, within this current Moon cycle, within the Sun currently in Cancer about to go into Leo, within ALL the rest of the planetary cycles we travel through consciously/unconsciously every day/month/year/decade/lifetime – WE are CONTINUALLY growing and changing. Deep Within and Without. Most times those Inner Changes are NOT seen by anyone else outside of our world or self! Just Me Myself and I will notice them. Other times, As Within, So Without. BEcause – the deep inner changes can take a LONG TIME/cycle to begin and end, THEN the Without will show itself.

Seasonal Zodiac Wheel

Seasonal Zodiac Wheel

Bottom Line here folks: Keep the FAITH (Pisces/Neptune) that CHANGE is happening (Pluto/Scorpio), that you are EXPANDING your inner world (Jupiter/Sagittarius) until the tipping point comes and shows itself – OUTWARDLY (Saturn/Capricorn) and brings a NEW aspect of Self out (Uranus/Aquarius) to be SEEN/heard by Others (Mercury/Virgo and Gemini). HEARTfully (Sun/Leo) EMOTIONALLY (Moon/Cancer) via our DESIRES of love/beauty of Self and significant Other (Venus/Taurus and Libra) taking self-ACTION (Mars/Aries) along the way.

Blessed BE!

Balsamic Moon Phase in Gemini…

Here we are once again – within the 8th and last Moon phase of the current Moon cycle begun June 16th. Interestingly, we began in Gemini and now end in Gemini – a mutable Air sign – all about data gathering, information sharing via communication with Others and within Self – how we relate with/to Others, AND within Self via our own inner self-talk.

Gemini glyphGemini brings in information from varying sources/people/situations to us. Question is: what information came to you this Moon Cycle for your Self growth? AND, what have you/will you DO with it?

Within this Balsamic Moon phase we have the CHOICE to Let Go of some aspect of our fearful Ego-self that was triggered somehow at the New Moon phase (be it consciously or unconsciously). By the Full Moon phase (July 1st) we most likely had an ‘AHA!’ moment of some sort that brought us into AWARENESS of that which this Moon Cycle is teaching us, personally.

What have you learned about yourself this Moon Cycle? How are you handling this view / awareness of your Inner You? Or are you huddled in a corner in deep fear and not wanting to ‘see’ further into your issue(s), not wanting to take further steps into the healing/let go phase just yet?

What is interesting about our respective Self-growth processes is this: each one of us has our own unique PROCESS to travel. Our process is OUR process. There is no RULE that we all have to DO our process like anyone else! There is no RULE that there is a time limit of ‘getting that awareness or AHA! moment and figuring it ALL out NOW!’ whew!

Hence why I love love love Astrology! Planetary/luminary cycles are in place to assist all of us with opportunities to CHOOSE when and how and where we allow change and growth into our lives. WE ALL HAVE CHOICE – always and in all ways. There is no ‘one size fits all’ remedy or scheme or piece of knowledge that fits everyone! This is NOT a race! It IS and always HAS been a PROCESS, a JOURNEY, towards ‘seeing’ Self more clearly/closely/lovingly…heartfully…this is the goal, simply put: Love Thyself…

8 Moon Phases

8 Moon Phases

Since Sunday @ 2:38a MDT the Balsamic Moon phase began, bringing with it a return to the same sign (Gemini) AND most likely House of Life Experience within your birth chart (it did for me) that was activated June 16th during the New Moon phase. NOW is the time to reflect on the following:

  • What exactly did I learn about myself this Moon Cycle?
  • What further action steps do I need to take (and not to say ‘DO it all in one day’)?
  • How do I FEEL about what I have learned about myself?
  • Am I walking through those feelings, or am I distracting myself to prevent looking deeper at possible root causes that point to past traumas/pain that haven’t healed before now?
  • What are those past traumas/pain events that seem to still be operating deep within?
  • How do I go about healing/let go of my emotional attachment to past hurts/pain/trauma? I say emotional attachment because we are dealing with the Moon’s cycle – she represents our Emotional Body, how we feel/intuit, the daily habits of the Ego-self (and any resistance to change this part of your Self that is brought to the daily table of Life).
  • Can I go about investigating any/all of this by myself or do I need to ask for help?
  • How far can I go exploring this aspect of myself that is getting in the way of my moving forward NOW in my life?
  • Am I Ready? Am I Willing? And do I Want To?

Gemini brings in CURIOSITY – how curious are YOU re: getting to the root of your issue? How far will you allow yourself to go, in search of your Higher Truth of your Inner You?

Gemini wants to connect with local peeps and share share share. Chats and conversations long into the night – and most likely returning time and again to the issue until it is resolved.

Felled Tree 2015

Felled Tree 2015

The Balsamic Moon phase brings emotions to the surface to BE released – all part of the healing phase within each Moon Cycle. A grieving phase – because there is an aspect of Self that is dying – BEing let go of – that is no longer working FOR us. It is somehow blocking NEW growth – similar to the Big White Elephant in the room that no one wants to see or hear or acknowledge. How courageous are You to BE curious enough to ‘see’ and acknowledge there is an issue, then facing that issue, then healing it?

AND, know this: each Moon Cycle BRINGS new Self-awareness, always in all ways. AND, depending upon how deep the Self-awareness runs, it may take TIME to deal with and heal. There will be Moon Cycles that bring healing / letting go all in one fell swoop – yippee! And then there will be an ongoing chipping away at the same damn issue over many cycles BECAUSE we may need that TIME to ‘see’ more clearly, feel more fully, find the courage to face/release/heal/love it all. In other words, it is OKAY to NOT know / understand / ‘GET’ the Inner Knowing that leads to healing in the moment. It may be many 1000’s of moments from NOW until it is the right and proper TIME to let it all go. Yes, banging your head on that proverbial Red Brick Wall time after time after time – there is a reason for all of it!

Therefore, please know that each Moon Cycle brings its own special CYCLE of Inner Knowing, Inner Loving, Inner Acknowledgement – no two Moon Cycles work the same because of HOW and WHERE each of the eight Moon phases activate YOUR birth chart! Especially if those Moon phases hit on a planet within your chart or one of the sensitive points (Rising sign, Midheaven sign, North/South node positions, PreNatal Eclipse positions, to name a few). These Moon Cycles are the heavy-duty ones, where we learn there is more going on UNCONSCIOUSLY than we first thought or expected.

Planets & Glyphs

Planets & Glyphs

Deep Within our Inner Self is a wealth of information, data, insights and feelings that are Unmasked and brought out of our respective Closets in Divine Timing. Our planets in our solar system are there for a reason, a season and a lifetime. Who we meet, what we see, how we interact and respond/react to any and all situations/conversations we attract to ourselves – THIS is what makes up OUR respective PROCESS of Inner healing/loving of Self. A life-long process, uniquely Yours. What a gift!

BLESSED BE!
