This Week in Astrology — Full Moon in Gemini

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On December 3rd, 2017 the Moon in Gemini will be opposed the Sun in Sagitarrius both planets square the planet Neptune in the constellation of Pisces.  Creating a sense of tragedy or comedy, depending on the perspective and understanding of the individual.  This will occur 8 hours after Mercury stations retrograde, conjunct Saturn signifying a reward or discipline awarded to an individual.  Depending on the houses that this happens in your chart.

The Sun is in a fire sign, Sagittarius where it is comfortable being fire and creating more fire.  The Moon in Gemini can be the balance of just the right amount of air and moisture to maintain the fire or if unchecked could blow the flame completely out, forcing one to create from scratch all over again.  This is the energy we are dealing with during this Full Moon.  Understanding the why is important during this full moon transit.  If we are moving through life unconsciously, meaning we have no actual why then this full moon will be a powerful time of awakening.  If we choose not to make emotional adjustments to rectify this unconscious behavior, then we will undoubtedly see discord.  Understanding and living through one’s personal truths are paramount during this time.

This Sun and Moon fall on the 11th degree of Sagittarius and Gemini,  Neptune is at 11 degrees Pisces and Jupiter are at 11 degrees in Scorpio.  All of these 11’s at one time signifies a portal or gateway, a point of transcendence.  Jupiter in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces activating the illumination of deeper truths of your existence.  This may mean comforts and support externally, or this may mean an inner contentment and satisfaction in the knowledge of your truth.  You tend to see the world fully now and this could be that the truth of a situation, relationship, or decision may be hurtful.  We must learn to accept the differences in this world, as opposed to viewing differences as things that need to be eliminated, this point of view only causes more strife.

Understanding this full moon is understanding the lesson of duality, like and unlike being one, as above/so below, etc….  When we actively oppose a situation then we are only making it worse, only when we accept the opposition then can we start to find balance and peace within.  Depending on the houses that correspond to this full moon will determine the illusions in your life that must be overcome and revealed.  So the lies, deception, misinformation, loss, and disappointment is an indication, not an aberration of what needs to be done to correct those illusions in your life that will allow you to transition over into a mode of freedom.

Full Moons are the most powerful astrological transit, combined with a Mercury Retrograde conjunct Saturn, Squared Neptune brings about powerful energy shift in consciousness and physical situations.   Saturn is there making sure you are not giving into the pressure of outside forces and is also there to reward you or remind you that you shouldn’t live for the purpose of making other people happy.  The discipline that Saturn brings is not necessarily bad, it is actually a form of protection for ourselves and our capacity to make bad decisions.  One should be focusing on one’s spiritual truth above all things, but the reality is that people do not fully understand the magnitude of rejecting their spiritual reality and the subsequent consequences.

We prepare for this full moon with the transit of Mars in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries.  The question arises in the form of can we act on our higher spiritual principles(Uranus in Aries) or just simply acting on our ego’s impulse actions (Mars in Libra).  This is a shadow zone, where our fears are projected in situations, people, or occurrences.  You may have to deal with impossible people or situations, the understanding is realizing that you are projecting.  Uranus is the great awakener, so it generally brings with it changes, no matter how comfortable the ego is with those subsequent changes.   You may be on the attack or people may be on the attack for you, understanding the projection, one will immediately alleviate the problem.

8 hours before this full moon starts Mercury conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius stations Retrograde.  Realizing that your own personal beliefs are the main thing oppressing you, is a hard thing to digest and accept.  Those who seek truth have learned to keep persisting no matter the obstacle, there is no obstacle that can not be overcome, you wouldn’t know that if you were taught to give up at any challenge or obstacle.  Mercury representing our mind is ahead of us in Sagittarius, as it retrogrades it comes back and gives us the insight it has gathered ahead of us.  This information is new, and it can sometimes be overwhelming.  One must take the time out to listen to ourselves and take serious one’s visions, dreams, and inner truth.  Being caught up in what everybody else has to say will not serve you.  Pay attention to the “crazy” person, they may have the most to say during this time.  If society or the media is branding someone as crazy or misinformed, you may want to listen to that.  Mercury retrograde is new information, new information sounds crazy because you never heard it before, it’s not actually crazy.

This Week in Astrology 10/10 to 10/14/17 (Jupiter in Scorpio)

Orishas of the Week: Oya and Obatala

Theme of the Week:  Letting go of the things that no longer serve us, preparation for transformation.  

Jupiter enters Scorpio October 10th 2017

Where Jupiter in Libra was about working through our relationship with the outside world and balancing our inner work to find the greatest expansion of ourselves. Jupiter in Scorpio looks to bring optimism in our darker expressions to bring about expansion through transformation.  Jupiter in Libra was more of choosing your team, and now in Scorpio is more of a vetting of our teammates.  The question is, do they have what it takes.  Jupiter is optimistic and thus represents your optimism, Scorpio represents the darkness necessary for transformation.  Understanding why we go through what we go through and what did we learn from it will be the theme coming up in this current Jupiter Cycle.  Can we learn the benefits of darkness?  Our relationships will be what we bring into this cycle, Scorpio will alert us to the why.  Jupiter is seeking intimacy in Scorpio, the kind of intimacy that brings satisfaction to our carnal desires.  How you are able to handle this energy will be paramount to your expansion over the next 13 months.  Jupiter will be in Scorpio until 11/8/18.  Remember to being the light to any darkness you experience to overcome and thrive during this transit.

Venus in Virgo oppose Chiron in Pisces October 10th 2017

Venus in Virgo represents your love at its highest octave, its greatest potential.  What stands in the way of this is opposed Chiron in Pisces representing your deepest wound.  How adept at you at reconciling your pain and trauma?  Do you mask it or deal with it?  The question of how you actually deal with pain do you let it bring you down or do you cut it off.  In truth our greatest love comes from healing those wounds and moving forward from healing.  The falsehood is when we don’t deal or try to mask these pains and keep acting like it isn’t there.  Active healing is called for during this transit.

Mars in Virgo square Saturn in Sagittarius October 11th 2017

Whenever we experience an aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius the question comes are we aligned with our soul’s purpose.  If we are, Saturn rewards.  If we are not, Saturn disciplines.  Mars in Virgo represents our actions in the context of purpose, the challenge is making the right decisions.  Continuing to walk in our path if we have been sidelined, or managing begin to walk in our light will be highlighted under this transit.  Most people do not like this transit because it requires accountability to be on the positive side of it.  Remember that no shot goes in that you never shoot.

Venus in Virgo inconjunct Uranus in Aries October 11th 2017

Learning how to incorporate imperfections into your perfect vision.  Even better the imperfections of you is what makes you perfect, strange as it seems.  Venus in Virgo representing your highest octave of love, inconjunct/quincunx to Uranus in Aries represents your individual Soul Urge.  Inconjunctions represent integrating the different aspects of our lives.  So this particular aspect is based upon integrating perfection and the unpredictability of our urges and being okay where they lead us.  But at least we went for it.  Where can we let go of things that no longer serve us without emotional turmoil.

Mercury in Libra sextiles North Node October 12th 2017

This transit puts wings on our thoughts and ideas, raises them to another level.  Mercury in Libra is enhanced with balanced mental acuity.  So make sure to be active in the realms of communication, writing, and any creative projects.  Whether the break happens now or later, the work you do now will be the seed you need to plant for a later date.  Stay active.

Mercury in Libra sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius October 12th 2017

Continuing to work towards your future and being aligned with a positive one where you will be rewarded.  Opportunities don’t come knocking everyday and they don’t return because you missed the call.  The saying goes if you stay ready you never need to get ready.

Venus enters Libra October 14th 2017

Our love moves into a conceptual stage.  We begin to examine and investigate the love we truly seek as it evolves.  A perfect place to be to prepare for a New Moon in Libra happening on the 18th.  Libra being an Air Sign and Venus an Earth Planet, we can expect great changes in our ideas surrounding love and how it is expressed.

 

This Week in Astrology (New Moon in Virgo & September 23rd, 2017)

On September 20th, 2017 we will experience our first New Moon since the Solar Eclipse on August 21st.  This New Moon like any other New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another 28-day cycle.  Eclipses mark the beginning of a 6-month phase.  Our last New Moon in Leo (The identity, personal Self) combined with the intensity of an eclipse, put a lot a pressure on your personal self to come into alignment with your spiritual self.  So a New Moon in Virgo is trying to make sense of these changes, if you don’t realize that there is an inner working at play, then you most likely point fingers.  This brings about a martyr/victim consciousness.  What you will notice is that people will take up causes that from your vantage point will seem odd and unfamiliar.  What you need to understand is that these people feel that they may need to change the system when in fact they need to change themselves.  So protests and riots will be something we will see in the next coming 28 days more than usual and that is actually saying a lot.  As long as a person is suffering they don’t need to be responsible.  So it may seem like suffering when in fact it is a shedding of responsibility. Stay Aware.

This New Moon in Virgo will be Inconjunct Uranus.  What this is is saying is that we must learn to integrate our intuition into our daily lives.  Learn to trust our inner guidance.  When planets are inconjunct they are labeled as difficult, because they require effort in bringing two elements together.  It might not be extremely overt and apparent, that’s what makes it’s difficult.  But understanding a quincunx/inconjunct planet can lead to profound insight in your overall astrology.  The New Moon in Virgo is how we FEEL things SHOULD BE, inconjunct Uranus an Aries, representing our deep intuitive spiritual nature now taking charge.   So integrating these aspects is easy or extremely difficult it depends on the person.  How we want things is not always how they will be but we always can make right and exact decisions in the midst of anything.  You still have an opportunity to speak your truth.  Don’t feel as if it is too late because the fun has just begun.

Chiron in Pisces is also inconjunct Jupiter in Libra.  The big integration here is in identifying with our pain or identifying with our healing.  Have you admitted you have a problem or are you looking for the newest and best band-aid to cover up your wounds?  Let us discover the wound we all share.

Chiron represents the natal wound that we carry with us throughout our life. Because it is always with us, we can try to avoid the pain by focusing on others in their woundedness.

Make sure people see you for your individual self and make sure they not used as a void filler.  Saviors don’t come from a place of power, needing a savior is a representation of you.  You were a victim before the savior came into being.  So in the grand scheme, feeling powerless nets you that result, more powerlessness.  You have to begin to believe in the change in you.    Tap into your Power.

Neptune in Pisces opposes Mars in Virgo during the New Moon.  Mars in Virgo is energetic, it is your action in relation to the world opposing Neptune relating to illusion, mass manipulation, “spiritualized” love, ecstatic devotion, dissolution of boundaries, and the imagination.  So ultimately you can use your power or it can be used by others.  You can really create new spiritual pathways for you and have the energy to accomplish it.  Spellwork and Ritual are encouraged.

Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries during the New Moon.  This transit challenges your ability to think clearly.  What Jupiter in Libra wants to do is re-balance the narrative, something more proportioned to fairness and truth.  Uranus in Aries is enlightening you to new pathways and taking action as you take charge of your destiny.  Are you taking advantage of yourself and your ability to move forward or are you reacting? Also since we are dealing with Uranus there will likely to be a particular sudden event that releases your built up tension and leads to a major change in circumstances.

This Week in Astrology – New Moon in Leo

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

Mercury Conjunct North Node in Leo – July 21st

As a preparation transit for the New Moon, we have Mercury going into a conjunction with North Node in Leo.  Giving us a peek into the wisdom of the future.  So really pay attention to your communications and interactions during this time, they all have a glimpse into the future.  Start to assess the situations and people you have in your life and see if the energy is something you want to abstain or sustain it.  Don’t get swept up into the doom and gloom of the Mass Media, and really focus on what you want to manifest.  You are not powerless over your future.

New Moon in Leo – July 23rd

This upcoming New Moon in Leo’s theme will be centered around the individual and his relationship to his tribe.  When you deal with the New Moon you are dealing with the Sun and Moon being conjunct, but this New Moon has an added zest because it will be conjunct Mars.  We are dealing with the individual, our feelings, and our actions.  A New Moon is a perfect time for setting intentions, depending on your spiritual level, it is a time to highlight and correct your relationship to family, environment, or habits.  If you have no immediate connection to a physical family it could mean a connection with the ancestral realm could be opening up.  Once again, it all depends on your level.

This New Moon is going to be square Uranus in Aries.  So the challenge will be to incorporate your personal path to a tribal path or whether one should give one up for the other.  So making decisions that support you and your growth primarily will cause a backlash of some sorts to those close to you but try to remember you will not be able to help those how you want to until you help yourself.  This is a good time to contemplate why you are here on this earth and what do you want to do about it.  Surely, you are not placed on this planet to make everybody happy.  The aforementioned conjunction to Mars makes this New Moon a time of passion, squared to Uranus, signifying one may have to fight for what he truly knows is best for him/her.  The question is are you projecting old behaviors or behaviors that serve your higher calling or purpose.  The options will be solving problems through calm and decisive actions or through a blind rage of confusion.

This New Moon is also offering a chance for healing with a Trine to Chiron in Pisces.  The ability to tap into the realms of higher consciousness or sink into self-pity, if we haven’t properly healed from old wounds.  This could throw us off if we aren’t focused on raising ourselves.  Sometimes our past gets brought up into our awareness so we can heal the things we suppress and allow us to move on freely.

Venus in Gemini opposes Saturn in Sagittarius  – July 24th

The day after the New Moon, Venus in Gemini opposes Saturn in Sagittarius, we are faced with the perpetual reality that what we desire most is not immediately in our midst.  This opposition causes tension if we do not have a plan to manifest our desires.  With a plan, we understand that what we want and what we do, are one.  This notion eases the tension that an opposition generally causes.  With patience and discipline, all things are possible.  When we are able to synthesize what we want with what it takes we create major changes for ourselves, instantly.  We must be responsible whether we have 10 dollars or 10 million dollars, so by taking responsibility for what we love, we are moving forward.

This Week in Astrology – Full Moon in Capricorn 2017

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

We want our focus to be on the upcoming Full Moon in Capricorn and the transits surrounding it.

First we take a look at Mars in Cancer, Mars is the planet of action, a Fire planet in a water sign. Cancer is dealing with security, home, your attachments(family). The cancer energy wants to submerge you, but the fighter in you will either go along, or fight it.  We are questioning our core values, examining our surroundings, and searching for a positive change.

Pluto in Capricorn is asking you the question how tight are you holding on, kind of forcing you to let it go, and letting go of things that control you.  Eeing able to be free to follow your guides and transform.  The key part to transforming, is letting go of the things that no longer serve you.

With these two planets opposing each other, we have to recognize how to recognize and bring these two aspects together.  At the personality level, your phenomenal Cancerian ability to sense and meet the needs of others can distract you from your own spiritual journey. Cancer is Humanity, Capricorn is Spirituality, they both represent gateways.

The goal is to connect all the dots of your life, find purpose in it all.  Creating the connection between humanity and spirituality will be key.  We can choose to be victims or victors.  Its an important time that we take our attention off of others, go within, and start your journey on the inside.  Important time for transcendence and transformation.

The Sun and the moon will be conjunct these powerful energies, The Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn, The Sun Conjunct Mars and The Moon conjunct Pluto, forming a Full Moon.  Our identity as human beings is now being redefined and tested, our reality as spiritual beings is now correcting itself.  We are being aligned to our spiritual nature whether we like it or not, and we if have been in the dark most likely we wont like it.  If we are in touch with our spiritual innate abilities, we will be able to realize the life we once only could imagine.  If you are on the positive side of this full moon, expect challenges, skeletons being pulled out of your closet, and people prodding at your weak spots.  Its important that we recognize our source of power within and use it.

If your interested in getting a deeper look at how these transits affect you personally please contact me.  Facebook or E-Mail. Donations.

Full Moon in Scorpio

A quick message regarding the Full Moon in Scorpio.

With the Sun in the nurturing sign of Taurus opposing the Moon in the deep diving sign of Scorpio. We are dealing with the Laws of Nature as well as the Universal Laws. As we prepare for a major shift in energy we need to understand our focus, energy, and how it manifests in our lives. There are countless atrocities happening presently in our reality, one could never keep up with every “negative” thing in the world. This transit is encouraging us to lighten our heart, raise our empathy, and transcend. The thing is, people who do not adhere to the laws of nature or universal law will not reap the benefits of Ma’at. This is a time of truth, an unveiling, and sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes the truth can be beautiful. Sometimes the truth can be our worst fear. This is another reason we do Astrology updates, we need to know the difference between planting, maintaining, and harvesting. With the Nodes shifting back to Leo, we enter into a time of war and propaganda, we need to focus on our reality. Now more than ever.

Peace & Calm
