Full Moon in Taurus…

At 6:53a MST November 14th, the Moon sits in opposition to the Sun, creating the Full Moon phase. The Moon will be at 22 degrees of Taurus 38′ and the Sun, 22 degrees of Scorpio 38′. The Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Sun/Soul at this time.

dsc05068Looking back to the New Moon in Scorpio October 30th, what fears have you faced and surpassed these past two weeks? What is this Full Moon Illuminating for you? Bringing a bright flashlight or spotlight for you to SEE clearly that once was hiding for dear life within your Inner Darkness? What has been revealed into the Light for your awareness?

Taurus rules the throat, the thyroid gland, your ability to Speak Your Truth! Any issues with your throat this Full Moon brings your attention/awareness towards what you aren’t able to, or are afraid to, speak up about!

The Scorpio portion of the program (via the Sun’s Light) shows us clearly how much MORE passion we are allowing to flow within our lives, compared to where we were October 30th. Or, are you passionately fearful? Or, perhaps passionately fearless?

Venus rules Taurus, and therefore this Full Moon, which some are calling a Supermoon. The last time a Full Moon was in Taurus AND this close to Earth, was back in January 1948. Interesting. How close and loud does it have to get for you to VALUE yourself? Feel WORTHY? BE content with your lot in life? Are you like the Taurean Bull, contentedly chewing your cud in a lovely fragrant, alive pasture surrounded by warm sunshine and green growth, birds chirping, insects buzzing by? Taking your time to smell those roses, BE in Nature, and ruminate about what you truly VALUE in life?

dsc05024Taurus rules the 2nd House of Life Experience in the birth chart. Venus, as ruler, beckons us to work (some might call it bull-work) within our own strength of character, the values we grew up with, the values we work out to BE our own (not someone else’s or society’s – MINE) that enriches our self-esteem and self-confidence and WORTHINESS. All of this, in turn, is wrapped within our unique set of talents, skills and experience we bring to the table of Life that assists each of us to “bring home the bacon” aka income. Which in turn we use to buy or experience those things we value. Business to business – B2B – Venus in Capricorn – what do you Desire from the businesses you use? How do they value you as a customer/client/partner? How do you value them? Is there a dovetailing of values or a gap?

Within the Full Moon chart, I see a YOD – that Finger of God – pointing to the Sun’s position within Scorpio. The vital and active part of our Soul (Sun) that incarnated down here on Earth to feel the range of emotions – the DEPTH of them – that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Universe the way we can here. The Finger of God begins with the Vertex (Vx) in Gemini’s air element – fated/destined conversations, information, data we’ve had/gathered and then share with one another – mixed with the trio of players within Aries: Uranus + Eris + Ceres – all Rx (retrograde) turning their energies inward, personalizing it. Uranus brings Unexpected Change; Eris brings our awareness to an aspect of Self we’ve been reluctant to invite to the table of our Life; and Ceres brings much-needed nurturance/sustenance.

Aries is the cardinal fire of instinctual Self – BE in the MOMENT, BE spontaneous, BE Instinctual – without editing yourself for others. Aries also brings forth the Inner Warrior, Inner Explorer and Inner Pioneer – what aspect of your Inner Character have you been reluctant to assert? To explore deeper? To seek new IN-Roads of your True Self to be seen and heard by others?

dsc05049Combining the Aries players with the Vertex in Gemini – what fated/destined awareness, knowledge, conversations, intertwined with “BECAUSE of your assertive curiosity + courage to try something NEW” shoots renewed energy to BE passionate Within YOURSELF and Your Life – ONLY if you allow those old patterns of conditioning to be let go. What are those patterns? Not noticing those times of fated/destined opportunities to JUMP INTO your Courage, INTO your Assertiveness, INTO your Curiosity, to EXPLORE new worlds, Within and Without, that brings you CLOSER to YOUR PASSION!

Your Ego-Self/brain will do all it can to prevent you from showing up, deciding to take that Leap of Faith, to DO something Different! BE aware of your inner resistance – this is a good sign! Breathe deeply and DIVE anyway! BE the passion. BE the awareness. FEEL the fear and DO IT anyway. During this Full Moon phase, with this Supermoon energy IN YOUR FACE anyway – what have you got to lose? Besides an opportunity?

Venus, as ruler of this Supermoon/Full Moon in Taurus, currently resides within Capricorn – brings forth our Desires for Better/More material gain. “When will it BE my time? When will my ship come in?” Full Moon in Taurus – go buy a lottery ticket! Challenge your Inner Worthiness! Are you worthy/worthwhile to WIN the jackpot yet? Seriously, I am asking you. ARE YOU WORTHY to receive ALL the BEST THINGS the Universe has to offer? Is it TIME yet, for you to ALLOW this in, to be received, taken and do with as you choose?

dsc05011And just as my previous post stated, both Neptune Rx and South Node Rx are at 09 degrees of Pisces during this Full Moon. Chiron is at 20 degrees of Scorpio 48′, also Rx, and sends a love line to the Sun’s position in Scorpio. Water to Water. Pisces’ nebulousness to Scorpio’s iciness. The Sun can melt some of that ice – is your Ego-Self willing to go there to reveal your True Self’s passionate nature? Despite the fear? Will Neptune and the South Node reveal your Karma from past lives, that seems to BE in your face, now? Neptune likes to dissolve illusions/delusions our Ego-Self created to survive past traumas/events. Is it TIME to allow the dissolution of it all yet? Or are the fears of the Ego-Self winning? Let’s return to Aries’ Cup of Courage and drink deeply…to let those old patterns of conditioning dissolve too….

The US Election of last week is still a hot topic – I plan to write yet another post about the US chart and Pluto at 15 degrees of Capricorn’s cardinal earth sign. Cardinal is about New Beginnings. Capricorn is all about material gain. The old guard is dying – what will President-elect Trump learn for himself as he learns to be President and works at being the CEO of the United States? Pluto’s transit through Capricorn since 2008 (until 2024) has been transforming HOW we DO material gain in the world – globally – and at home. Pluto is bringing it HOME. Some aspect of HOW the United States’ beliefs about material gain have already toppled and died (Pluto is all about life/death/rebirth). What MORE can possibly occur these next 8 years? Stay tuned!

dsc05004Enjoy the Moonlight tonight and tomorrow and Tuesday. Bask in your worth, value your commitment to building, hands-on, your daily bread-winning ways. BE in Nature (especially with the lovely weather of late!) and enjoy what you ALREADY HAVE. Envision (Neptune) a more passionately (Scorpio) sustaining future with all the good things this Earth can provide (Taurus). Take Unexpected Action (Uranus in Aries), invite that part of yourself that has been restless and wanting to join the party of your Life (Eris), and nurture ALL of You (Ceres) as best you can this Full Moon. Celebrate, value yourself, and your life.

NAMASTE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mt Lorette Ponds3

Mt Lorette Ponds 2016

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

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

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

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

  • Vesta, in Cancer – the most sensitive water sign, Cancer represents the Mother, Family, Nurturance and can be Possessive, not wanting to LET GO in some regard. Vesta, the brightest of the Asteroids, brings forth concentrated focus, and she rules the Home/Hearth Fire. She represents the flame that BURNS AWAY the non-essentials, leaving only that which is pure (according to Jim Maynard’s Celestial Guide 2016). We can use her energy to focus on this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse task to heal an old pattern re: HOW we do nurturance within the Family. As we do so, we may send Love and Forgiveness UP to the Finger of this YOD, to Saturn – representing a parent, a boss, or other authority figure in your life – that you haven’t been HEARTFULLY able to do before now. And with Mars Up There too – extra energy to TAKE ACTION on this wee gift of Self Growth.
  • Ceres in Taurus – the mutable, sensuous (Full of our Senses/Senses ARE Full) earth sign, Taurus can be as Stubborn as a Bull (!!) with resistance to CHANGE – OR will take the Bull by the Horns (!!) to get this job done! Your choice, as always. Ceres, the largest of the Asteroids, known for ruling agriculture, the harvest and abundance of the land, indicates HOW we received NURTURANCE as a child/our capacity to NURTURE now as adults…just saying…has anything changed for you since you were a child?
  • Can you ‘see’ how both Vesta and Ceres, as they LET GO of old resentments/grudges against a parent or whomever that didn’t NURTURE us the way we expected (they did the best they could with the Heart that they had), we in turn heal our Hearts, allow FORGIVENESS to heal ME and YOU/THEM along the way, AND create more LOVE in the world (and Beyond)?! AND, create more ROOM for nurturance of Self, then Others – and on and on it goes…and grows!
  • AND, Ceres and Vesta learn to work together too. Vesta can get so caught up in the DOING of a task, she can forget to come up for air and BE with her loved ones. Ceres assists with the Caretaking/CareGIVING portion of the program. SO, when Ceres heals her end of the Old Pattern of Conditioning with the Parent/Authority figure in question in your life, AND Vesta heals her issues, then TOGETHER they create a NEW way, Within YOU, to nurture, YOU! A Win-Win, eh?
Violets3

Violets, Cedar Villa Extendicare 2016

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

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

Let me Think on That

Let Me Think on That…

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

Blessed BE!

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

eVALUating our Perspective of Worth – New Moon in Taurus

Flowering Blossoms 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessed BE!

Mercury Rx in Taurus, April 28 – May 22, 2016

Mercury begins to Station Rx (retrograde – seemingly about to move backwards) for the second time this year. On April 28th at 11:20a MDT Mercury begins the logical vacation it takes three times yearly. This round has Mercury going back over the same degrees it travelled directly through since April 14th, bringing a chance to rethink, respeak, reprocess thoughts and conversations we’ve had until April 28th.

As Mercury turns Rx, the usual outward and direct energy turns inward for further reflection. What have I said, thought about and learned of that now needs some time to percolate? This includes how we talk to ourselves. Lovingly or not so much?

The degrees and sign Mercury is revisiting will be between 14 degrees of Taurus 20′ and 23 degrees of Taurus and 35′. Wherever this range of longitude resides in your birth chart is where your “do-over” occurs until May 22nd when it Stations Direct again at 7:20a MDT.

Mercury in Taurus brings out our value systems for review, what we value about the collection of skills, talents and personal resources we have to offer in the world. How are you showing up with them? Are some hidden? Why? Are you ashamed of showing those skills? Do you not feel worthy of having them? Perhaps you have natural talents untested by degrees and certificates that seem to be required in today’s job market? What do you VALUE about yourself?

If you are having difficulty determining what values are, let alone what yours are, consider this link to Dr. Demartini’s Valuation exercisehttps://drdemartini.com/value_determination/determine_your_values – and see for yourself. I have done this exercise a few times within the past three years. Whenever I seem to undergo a major inner transition time I feel the need to re-evaluate myself via my values. Could be because I have my Moon in Taurus and South Node right beside it. I need to feel (Moon) what I value now compared to where I was in the past (South Node). And to do so tactily (Taurus).

Taurus also brings forth the need to connect sensuously – as in ALL our senses – not just the mind! Hence smells, tastes, feelings, what we see, hear and touch will all combine to show our way forward, mindfully, after this Mercury Rx period completes itself. I also include my 6th sense – intuitive insights – into the mix.

Taurus, ruled by Venus, asks us , “What do you want to create by yourself (vs. the other sign Venus rules, Libra, wishing to create WITH someone else – via partnership and relationship). Taurus is a fixed earth sign – hands-on, tactile, actually creating something you can physically pass on to another. Dedicated to the task at hand, concentrated effort and energy to get the job done! Hence all the workmanship of woodworking comes to mind – detail work of embroidery, lace-making, artwork, design, cooking, baking – you see the theme.

Taurus in your chart shows where you generate something physical to share with others. For me it is two-fold: I have Taurus within my 9th House of being teacher, creating handouts for my clients and Astrology students – something they can refer to into the future after the readings and classes are long over. I am also student here – so the copious amounts of notes I create as I study and research topics I am interested in.

Taurus straddles into my 10th House of my professional/public life. Here, when I work in office jobs, I tend to create procedural manuals, collecting all the knowledge and processes of how to do this job into one source, for future referral by others when I am long gone. I have also brought this talent into community newsletters I’ve written about recycling as a volunteer. Do you see how this could translate into your life?

Mercury Transits through the Houses (according to Robert Hand’s Planets in Transit) show possible themes being retraced in your life at this time, depending on where Taurus falls in your birth chart:

  • 1st House: expressing your point of view to others – with Taurus I’d say via the written word mostly – emails, texts, letters. Yet with all your others senses at play – be creative!
  • 2nd House: Taurus rules this House, therefore you will attentively be drawn to what you value in life – materially, intellectually or spiritually – and how to plan for them, negotiate property or loans, your financial planning time of year (we Canadians have been sending in our Income Tax returns before the April 30th deadline!). Good time to explore and define what YOUR values truly are (see that link above).
  • 3rd House: Mercury rules this House, therefore his energies will intensify via group discussions/conversations, network and meet new people, possible local travel, with more connections with relatives, the people you live with and your neighbours.
  • 4th House: here you’ll withdraw from the world to reflect upon all the ideas you’ve encountered since April 14th especially. Examine your personal and domestic life, with immediate family discussions.
  • 5th House: A great time to journal about Self, expressing your thoughts creatively, then sharing them with others. Use the mind for amusement via reading, writing, playing games that require mental agility.
  • 6th House: Two categories here – Work and Health. At work pay more attention to detail, using the best processes possible. Plan carefully, work out the details in advance so there are no surprises. You can be critical of others here and be careless of other’s Ego needs. Healthwise – can feel nervous or anxious about non-rational fears. You may become concerned about your health and exercise regimen or at least have your attention drawn to it in some regard.
  • 7th House: Excellent time to clarify and explain issues to close relationship peeps in your life (friends, partners, clients, coworkers). Also a good time to consult with a professional on an issue you are concerned about.
  • 8th House: Here we tend to take time for deep, inward reflection about the truth of self – anything hidden, especially those Ego-based fears you’ve been hiding from yourself. You may have to deal with joint resources and property issues at this time.
  • 9th House: Excellent time for study or further education – or at least looking into future courses you’d like to take. Eager for knowledge and new experiences, wanting to see the bigger picture in your life, how the many parts make up the whole of your Life Purpose.
  • 10th House: Plans for your professional life and perhaps a club or organization that you can volunteer in that expresses you in the outer world.
  • 11th House: You’ll be thinking about dreams and wishes, goals for your next year of Life Experience. Time to reflect on previous goals – have they come to fruition? If not, why? How well did they manifest? Are these goals your own or something others wanted for you instead? Examine attitudes re: group ideals and standards – where do you stand?
  • 12th House: Here is the Hidden Self House – so you may tend to keep what you’re thinking and feeling to yourself. Or, become more in touch with these hidden aspects of yourself, spiritually, via unconscious drives of your personality showing themselves to you via meditation, yoga etc.

Remember, each Mercury Rx timing or transit brings any or all of the following:

  • Expect the Unexpected – via information you didn’t know you needed to know! From a book, a TV show, a conversation, chance encounter with an old acquaintence or stranger, or something technical breaking down – aka computers, phones, cars, office machines – anything electrical that brings us communication or ability to travel locally.
  • Pay Attention! Your mind needs to BE in the Moment – otherwise you’ll miss an error, create an accident, miss an opportunity to create something new (Taurus) that you might not have connected the dots to before now. Double and triple check those documents and contracts! Don’t sign anything unless you absolutely ‘feel’ it is right to do so.
  • Think outside the logic box – play with the thoughts, brainstorm with others, look at all sides rather than just the usual side. Our mental focus and attention shifts – and when Mercury is Rx, away from logic. Creative troubleshooting via feeling your way, intuiting new avenues of direction and process.
  • Be conscious of your words – and their affect on others. What is true for self to be direct and up front may be felt as a slap for someone who is more sensitive. Delivery of your conversation, no matter the heartfelt intention, can be misconstrued. Hence why I love Mercury Rx – a chance for a do-over! Perhaps in person next time?
  • Speaking of – when was the last time you listened to your Inner Talk with yourself? I mean honestly listened to the rote of it? Any bad habits creating a rut? Bring in more loving and creative means. Think of your Inner Talk as if you were talking to a dear friend – would you take to them the way you talk to yourself? Hhhmmm…
  • People from the past – colleagues, friends, allies, groups you belonged to –  someone will come forward at some point to reconnect. Information you didn’t know you needed to know….
  • Once Mercury Stations Direct again May 22nd, we have the post-Rx Shadow timing of yet another do-over! Direct again – where we were at April 14-28th! This will last until Mercury returns to 23 degrees of Taurus – June 7th! Here is yet another opportunity to directly communication what you value, however that may look.

Yes there will be mishandled communications, tasks dropped, calls misconnected, you name it. There is always a reason to the WHY of it. Be patient, watch your stubbornness to hold the party line or just your own line, rather than allowing to ‘see’ the other’s opinion and point of view. Create something of lasting value, Within and Without.

Blessed BE!

Something Destined This Way Comes…

DSC04239

Full Moon, Calgary, AB Canada

Tonight’s Full Moon @ 11:24p MDT occurs in Scorpio – 02 degrees 31′ to be exact. Which is what Scorpio is all about – details details details. Depth. Passion. Fear….Trust issues.

What is extraordinary about tonight’s Full Moon is the Star of David formation created from two Grand Trine sets of planets/points within the Full Moon chart. One Grand Trine is made up of planets within Earth signs, pointing Up; the other is made up of planets/points in Water signs, pointing down. As Above, So Below.

One of the sensitive points within the Water Grand Trine is the Vertex – a point of Destiny or Fate, sitting within the cardinal water sign of Cancer. The family, mothering/fathering, nurturance, home and hearth. Possessiveness, compassion, caregiving, emotional body of feelings and intuitive insights. Also, exit stage left skittering away to avoid all confrontation. Or digging one’s heels in, refusing to budge AND digging a hole for oneself in the process.

This sensitive point, the Vertex, brings forth unexpected CHANGE into our lives. Something unforseen, unplanned. Joined elementally to Juno Rx (Retrograde) in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, we have a highly emotional and sensitively intuitional connection. Neptune dissolves our illusions/delusions away, while Juno brings in the emotional NEED for a balanced, equal blend of Man/Woman, masculine/feminine energy power. BOTH are needed at this time. Combined with the Vertex in Cancer – what NEW family connections are coming our way? Soul family? Business family? Extended family we’ve not been in touch with until now?

Okotoks, AB Canada

The Earth Grand Trine joins Pluto Rx within Capricorn with Vesta and Mercury in Taurus, then Jupiter and the North Node, both Rx, within Virgo. Here we undergo inner EMPOWERMENT (Pluto Rx) to climb higher than usual to find our material gain (or, rather, take a totally different path than usual towards it). With concentrated focus (Vesta), mindfully (Mercury), we take a hands-on approach to create something by using our respective toolboxs of personal talents, skills and experience. Once we’ve figured these two out, THEN we move forward towards our Soul’s intented direction (North Node) allowing ourselves to step out of our usual limitations and boundaries of who we thought we were re: BEing of Service out in the world. Discerning the processes and rules of engagement along the way. Being the apprentice or mentor or teacher/student.

During every Full Moon event, the Sun sits directly opposite the Moon. Tonight the Sun is at 02 degrees Taurus 31′. Values, possessions, sensual accuity to create something tangible, our personal talents and skills and experience that we use to bring money towards us. The Sun’s vital force energy asks us what ACTION do we wish to take, while the Moon’s emotional/intuitional energy asks us what do we wish to RECEIVE?

Some believe the Full Moon is a reflection of the Sun’s unconscous desires. Considering Venus rules Taurus (how can I create this by myself), as our Desire Body, what has been an Unconscious Desire until now? What do you value about YOU? What do you distrust? The opposite sign, Scorpio, brings hidden depths of passions and the fears to allow others to SEE the passion we have! Here we may distrust ourselves to the point of hiding relevant parts of ourselves, totally denying those aspects to BE seen, heard and answered!

What are you afraid of, deep down? Tonight’s Full Moon will Illuminate those hidden fears as well as the passions held down below those fears. I’d rather live a passionate life than a fearful one, wouldn’t you? LIVING Life is passion. Hiding from Life is fear.

Pluto Rx within Capricorn is the Lord or Ruler of Scorpio, hence Lord of this Full Moon. Allow yourself to glimpse down into your own Underworld to ‘see’ what you’ve buried deeply within that is begging to ‘see’ and BE in the Light of this Full Moon. Transformation may be your Destined path. Allow it to occur, As Within, So Without.

Blessed BE!

Full Moon in Taurus…Part II

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

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

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

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

Wee Daisies in October!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Same Sunset Sky, different direction

Same Sunset Sky, different direction

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

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

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

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

Blessed BE!
