Full Moon in Virgo {2018}

 

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 March 8, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 11° Virgo, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon.  The 11th degree of Virgo alludes to wealth, relationships, and trickery.  We will examine this Full Moon transit in depth and uncover some mysteries along the way.  The Full Moon in Virgo coincides with the previous Solar Eclipse in Aquarius by being the result of that time of setting intentions.  Pay attention to the things you manifest, every cause has an effect.  The Sun represents who you project yourself to be, The Moon represents how we truly feel, since these two forces are opposed, The Full Moon represents a point to which we must understand this tension to resolve it.  So the things we have tried to avoid and not address comes into full focus during these times.  The goals you set during the Solar Eclipse can be re-examined and fine-tuned during this time as well.  This is a time of harvest.  This Full Moon will challenge us to be our best selves moving forward by shining a light on those not so pleasant aspects of ourselves and giving us the energy to make changes.  Dieting, seeing a mental health professional, detox clinic, or even rehab may be the best thing to do if you find yourself struggling with some inner conflict.  Let us now look at some aspects that support this Full Moon in Virgo.  

 

The Sun will be Conjunct Venus and Neptune in Pisces, creating a mystical guidance system for you.  The Moon will be opposite Neptune in Venus highlighting the ability to perceive things, good or bad.  It is best to speak our truth and be honest, the problem comes with holding things in that you rather say, this creates the most problems in our relationships and affairs.  Finding time to yourself to find out what is truly important to YOU, can also do you some good in easing the inner tension.  The issue of denial is really big and these are things that must be addressed moving forward.  Looking at our patterns and habits, see the ones that are hindering us, and make the necessary changes moving forward.  Sometimes we focus on others so we don’t have to focus on ourselves.  

 

In our shadow watch, we take a look at the Jupiter in Scorpio trine aspect to the Sun, Venus, and Pisces. This may be a time when people will begin to profit off of their pain, find lucrative ways to express themselves or do the necessary work to heal.  Whether it is rehab, seeing a psychologist, or forming a sister/brotherhood where you can be honest.  A reminder that honesty is a sure-fire way to progress over any obstacle, also you may be faced with no other alternative but to be honest. This is a time for expansion and enhancing even if you are doing good, don’t be afraid to strive for better and upgrade.  There is a way we can strive for growth without being greedy, by making sound investments and thinking of the future, this is a good time to prepare for the future.  

 

Peace and contentment are available if we are really in seek of it.  Understanding that everything has a counterbalance of light and dark, our goal is to balance this force moving forward.  Things will start to manifest in our lives now at a fast rate, things we can only dream about now, learning how to prepare for these miracles is the proper mindstate.  Another reminder is that joy comes from the inside, happiness is based on happenstance, so create the happy situations from within, this is a major key.  

 

There is a Mars Square Venus transit we want to pay attention too as well.  We may be seeking things and people that satisfy us and only us, this may or may not be a problem, depending on if you are in a relationship or not.   As you rise in finances and status so does your passions, be mindful of your tendency to be lustful and overindulgent.  There will be challenges in the realms of harmony, a routine is not necessarily harmonious, joy is a major factor to harmony.  So be mindful…. Avoid superficial bonds, strive for mental and emotional connections for these will be the most beneficial of bonds.  

ORISHAS OF THE WEEK

Olokun is the Orisha of great wealth and great mysteries.  Often veiled, one would need a messenger to have access to the great wealth and greater mysteries made just for us.  Eshu Aye is that messenger, said to walk along the seashores accompanied by Yemaya, holding the key to the treasure vaults of Olokun.  Esu Aye is the treasure keeper, who brings great wealth and financial stability.  Offerings can be made to him to ensure financial success.  This Esu knows all that we want, work with him during this full moon in Virgo to secure the bag.

It is said that Esu Aye is the one who works with Olokun.  Esu Aye is sent down to earth to answer prayers, they come in the form of mystical and prophetic visions, these visions provide guidance beyond limited concerns of everyday consciousness.  Make sure you find time outside of your everyday thoughts to access this energy and use it to your benefit.  

Olokun deals with the realms of our unconscious mind and things beyond this physical reality.  Olokun’s aspects are expressed in the astral realms, dreams, or in altered states of consciousness.  Olokun is accessed through meditation, initiation, or possession.  Olokun is deep and mysterious, no one knows what’s on the ocean floor.  Olokun is the owner of those mysteries on the ocean floor, she/he activates our inner genius when worked with.  Olokun will grant you great wealth, prosperity, and health.  He/She possesses unmatchable wisdom and is respected as an authority to all water deities.  

This Full Moon brings opportunities through healing, when we realize and work on our inner issues, the direct result is external well being.  If we are avoiding the inner work, our outer reality will begin to suffer and create almost unbearable tension.  Hopefully, this article gives you enough solutions to deal with the current energy bestowed on the planet.  Let me know if this was helpful, or if you have any additional questions.

 

Peace.

This Week in Astrology — Solar Eclipse in Aquarius (2018)

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 February 15th, 2018 a partial solar eclipse will take place on the planet.  A solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth.  A Solar Eclipse is a New Moon and with any New Moon, this is a time for setting intentions and new beginnings. The Solar Eclipse is a New Moon with additional power.  So in this article, we will discuss the transits that will be happening during this Solar Eclipse cycle and some things we can do to prepare for it.  

New Moon in Aquarius

A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are conjunct, this New Moon is in the Constellation of Aquarius.  To fully understand this transit we have to fully examine the sign of Aquarius and what it means.  Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, it is an Air sign, it promotes originality unpredictability.  Themes during an Aquarius transit will be around surrendering, liberation, and freedom.  The Sun and the Moon represent who you are personally and how you are feeling.  A New Moon is a perfect time to calibrate how you feel with who you are so you can live a more authentic life.  We have an inner and outer life, this New Moon cycle is a perfect time to align those lives so that we can express ourselves in truth.  Like any New Moon, the Solar Eclipse is a time for setting intentions and using the energy available to bring about a personal transformation. With any Solar Eclipse New Moon, this is the ending and beginning of a new and old cycle.

A deeper understanding of this time we are living in will give you the peace of mind needed to move forward.  We are living in a time called the Aquarian Age, our central sun is approaching this constellation, so with each passing year, we get closer to the full realization of the age.  The Aquarian Age represents humanity’s realization of their essential unity, how to be apart of the collective, as well as being an original person.  Freedom is a theme of the Aquarian Age, so to fully get free you will have to see where you are imprisoned and free yourself.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and this New Moon is additionally aided by a sextile to Uranus in Aries, adding more energy around the possibility for change and unexpected circumstances.  If you use this energy to reflect a changed person and are focused on your goals, you will be propelled to heights once thought unimaginable.  On the contrary, if one is struggling with change, this will be a rough transit based on missed opportunities and likely regret.  If one recognizes that change is supreme one will likely flourish through our current Eclipse Cycle.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse will square Jupiter in Scorpio, which will give us all an opportunity to overcome some major obstacles.   Jupiter in Scorpio is a light in the darkness.  Do you like what you see? Are you willing to change the things you do not like?  This is not a time for doom and gloom, this is an opportunity to make major changes.  It is a matter of perspective, yet there will be a large amount of energy available to actually overcome those obstacles.

“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.”

New Moon in Aquarius (1)

During this New Moon, Mars will be Aspected by Neptune in Pisces and North Node in Leo.  Mars is in the Constellation of Sagittarius energizing exploration, adventure, optimism, and faith.  Actions are focused on the future and the energy will be available to make changes for the better.  Mars trine the North Node doubles down on this optimistic view of the future, it does not matter where you are in the present.  With a square to Neptune, it is important for the individual to be focused on a real result, rather than a fantasy. 

The Shango Eclipse 

tumblr_inline_np80wumrnF1sg2o43_540

Aquarius is associated with change, rebellion, and disruption all themes that reflect Shango, the warrior Orisha of thunder, lightning, and fire.  Shango is known for working miracles.  Shango also rules over friends and associations, how people view you and receive you.  High Shango energy means you are well received and have a high sexual energy.  Shango also has dominion in the astrology transit of Mars in Sagittarius where energy and focus come together for a beautiful dance.  Dancing is one of Shango’s main characteristics.

Shango & Oya

This New Moon will be sextile Uranus, inviting Shango(New Moon in Aquarius) and Oya(Uranus in Aries) to once again unite to bring a major change in the individual.  “Oya is the favorite wife of Shango, the only wife who remained true to him until the end, leaving Oyo with him and becoming a deity when he did. She is Goddess of the Niger River, which is called the River Oya, but she manifests herself as the strong wind that precedes a thunderstorm. When Shango wishes to fight with lightning, he sends his wife ahead of him to fight with the wind.”   Shango once had 2 wives.  Oshun who was sexually attractive.  Oba who was the perfect doting wife.  He banished both of them because he realized that is not what he wanted.  He wanted something much more, he wanted a partner, and that is what he found in Oya.  Oya gave Shango his space, she complimented him and was there for him when he needed her the same as he was for her.  Oya recognized she needed space too.  They formed a balanced and supportive relationship.

What we can take from this story, is how to find our perfect balance.  Are we living in the ideal we had as children? Have we matured to enough to create a new ideal, that fits our new viewpoint of ourselves?  We have to be honest about our needs and what we truly want in order to get it.  Peace in our lives comes from honesty.  We can be honest with others and still not be honest with ourselves, creating the illusion of wellness, Shango is trying to present you with the reality of wellness.  To get there, you must be honest with yourself.  It is imperative.   We may have reached where we have become too arrogant and settled in our ignorance to make a change with our free will, that is when Shango and Oya come through with the energy of change, whether you like it or not.

This Week in Astrology — Saturn in Capricorn /Full Moon in Cancer (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.

On December 20th, 2017 Saturn enters into its ruling sign Capricorn.  Saturn is well structured, hardworking, persistent, and focused on becoming the best it can be.  Capricorn is the place where you can best express the true you.  Through the qualities of Saturn and Capricorn, one can really achieve its highest heights, like the Mountain Goat (Capricorn).

Saturn-in-Capricorn.jpg

Capricorn, is derived from the Latin word Capra which means goat.(God of all Things)  If you observe the mountain goat you will see his stability through rocky terrain and high altitudes.  What we can take from that is that, by being grounded one can steadily rise like the Goat.  The goat was worshiped, in ancient Egypt (The goat of Mendes, later the Baphomet), in ancient Greece (Pan later Dionysus).

https://hoodmystic.com/2016/12/21/capricorn-grounding-and-rising/

Where Saturn in Sagittarius for the past 3 years felt like your eccentric self and the things you truly loved were put on hold, Saturn in Capricorn is like taking the mask off and allowing you to be your true self.  Saturn represents rules, diligence, boundaries, observation, and structure.  The reasons are not to punish you or discipline you, it is to bring the things you truly are on the manifest.  So by the end of 2020, the new and better you should emerge but it requires effort on your behalf.

Saturn is the preparer for your our destiny, making sure we are on our path and completing our path.  As we can see in society, old ways of life are collapsing and new ways of living are emerging.  Saturn will end the old way of life and bring about a new way of life.  On one side of Saturn, there is wealth, abundance and resources.  On the other side, there is destruction, dissolution, and loosening of ego.

This Christmas, Venus goes into Capricorn, conjunct the Sun and Saturn.  The Orishas I want to focus on with this transit is  Babalú-Ayé and Oshun.   Babalú-Ayé is the  “Father of the World,”  Oshun is the Goddess of the rivers.   Babalú-Ayé enjoys this world because of Oshun, and Oshun enjoys the feeling of  Babalú-Ayé.   Babalú-Ayé imposes a limitation, but not for punishment, for definition.  Do not sell your soul for pleasure (Oshun), for pleasure wants you as well.  Living simply for pleasure is destructive.  By forming a canal( Babalú-Ayé), one is able to create the modality for abundant water (Oshun) to flow throw.

Where Venus is Love, beauty, and finances coming into a sign of focus, accountability, and maturity.  A key during this time would be to observe and manage your behaviors.  Focus your attention on the things that will better yourself and your environment.  Make sure other people or ideas aren’t blocking you from the things you truly desire and want.  You should be running your perception not other people.  Follow what you know or at least begin to take the steps to do so.  During this time individuals will be able to manifest themselves into the place where you begin to access your goals.

The Full Moon in Cancer at 11 degrees, on January 1, 2018.  The moon is in its rulership as well in Cancer.  This is where it can express itself to the best and fullest.  This Moon is powerful and comfortable, this is also the largest Full Moon of the Year.  This is a time of psychic abilities and you will be able to read others very easily.  Just because you can feel things does not mean you will follow your intuition, this is a good time to do so.  During New Years, parties are in abundance, you will be around a variety of unknown energy, use your sensitivities to navigate the unknown energy during the festivities.

blackmoon_e

The Full Moon in Cancer will be opposed the Black Moon Lillith in Capricorn.  We talked about the Dark Moon Goddesses before and what the energy means.  The Moon and the Black Moon are polar opposites.  The Moon represents the overt feelings, the Black Moon Lillith represent the unconscious liminal feeling.  They may just cancel each other out and accentuate each other.  The domesticity of the Full Moon in Cancer will be able to hold back the wild reigns of the Black Moon Lillith.  On the contrary, the wildness of the Black Moon Lillith will be able to bring out that wild side and kill some stagnation of the domestic Moon in Cancer.  This energy allows us to tap into some deep information within us and bring it forward.  The deeper you go the more rewarding the energy will feel.

“As we can see, sometimes Lilith plays the role of devil’s advocate and spices things up so that we don’t become stagnant and complacent in our closest relationships. Single people may grow tired of decadent parties and yearn for a safe and solid union, maybe even fall for a dependable someone whom they thought quite dull in the past. Sometimes it takes an interfering bitch to show us just how much we really love the comfy old slipper we call our wife, husband, best friend or business partner.”

Dark Star Astrology

The theme for this week is hard work.  Not hard work for the sake of hard work.  The hard work necessary for transformation.  This requires trust and strength.  Trust to know that your best days are in front of you.   Strength to bring it into manifest.  So with that said.  Have a productive week.

This Week in Astrology — New Moon in Sagittarius (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.

On December 18th, 2017 we will be experiencing a New Moon in Sagittarius.  The New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon come into conjunction.

This conjunction will be at 26 degrees Sagittarius, representing the Flag-Bearer, the one who openly promotes an idea or value and becomes the symbol for it.  The New Moon phase represents the beginning of the moon cycle, a time to set intentions.  What idea do you represent or want to represent, and want to become a symbol for?

Sagittarius represents a direction, it is a fire sign, meaning it is an energetic symbol.  Do you trust the conditions around you will facilitate the growth you seek?   A deeper sense of knowing has to be utilized during this time.  Don’t involve yourself in situations you are not sure of, deal with people your not sure of, or go places your not sure of.  Not to scare you but to remind you to go with doing the right thing.  Even in situations that are unknown, if you are not fascinated or curious by it, take a pause.

This New Moon will be touched by Saturn which will be close by at 29 degrees Sagittarius.  This allows us the ability to implement new functional and critical changes to our forever growing spiritual development.  You can allow this energy to shoot you into new heights based on your discipline or burn you down due to stagnation.

The current New Moon in Sagittarius will be trine Uranus in Aries.  The “Great Awakener” Uranus will be triggered with this new moon allowing you to tap into ancient power sources to shoot you through this Sagittarius New Moon.  Understanding your personal freedom, your inner revolutionary, and your divine genius and let these things shine through.  One can hope for these aspects to reveal themselves and unfold over the next 28-day cycle.  This New Moon taps into ancestral energy as well as past life energy.  Trusting in this wishing well within yourself will pull you past what anybody has to say or think about you.  This energy is about freedom and raising you above the levels of fear and envy that may plague you.

This is a very deep time, yet it is a very energetic time.  One should be pursuing something within themselves if one has any questions.  The cues you get from self should inspire you to act in some form or fashion.  Why are you here?  Dealing with this New Moon one has to create the environment for success.  The mental environment.  The thoughts you keep are like your landscaping of your mind.  Be mindful not to ingest criticism or negative energy, just know where you get your cues from.  With proper probing, research, and discipline the answers are not far as you would normally think, all one would have to do is simply aim in the direction you desire.

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.

Add subheading (2)

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 – Full Moon in Aries

Mars Conjunct Venus in Virgo Trine Pluto in Capricorn 10/2, 10/3

Mars and Venus come together in Virgo allowing us to identify and put action behind what we love, what we want, and what we actually have.  These two planets trine Pluto enacting transformation in our personal lives.  There is other symbology in the upcoming week astrologically, indicating a huge transformation in store for the individual and the collective.  It is our responsibility to identify the things we can fix versus the things we can’t and have to let go of.  Depending on which house this transit falls you can expect a huge transformation in that area.  Consult an astrologer or get a natal chart of your own so you can study it.  Mars and Venus come into exact conjunction the same day as the Full Moon in Aries October 5th.

Sun in Libra inconjunct Neptune in Pisces 10/4

The symbology of this transit is integrating the Scarab Beetle with the Magical Mirror.  The Sun in Libra representing the Scarab Beetle.

“as the rising sun, was often depicted as a scarab beetle or as a scarab beetle-headed man. The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling it above the horizon, then carried it through the other world after sunset, only to renew it, again, the next day.”

“O my heart that I received from my mother, my heart that I have had since birth, my heart that was with me through all the stages of my life, do not stand up against me as a w/itness! Do not oppose me at the tribunal! Do not tip the scales against me in the presence of the Keeper of the Balance! You are my ka of my body, you are the creator god Khnum who makes my limbs sound. Go forth to the Hereafter”
While Neptune in Pisces represents the Magical Mirror of Truth.  What are the things you are telling yourself?  Are you identifying with the guilt of the ego? or the freedom of the soul? The Scarab Beetle is placed over the heart of the mummy to remind the soul that he has committed no wrongs on this earthly plane of existence.  So many of us carry around wounds that we don’t need to.  Unnecessary baggage.   Can we let go of the pain and find some balance emotionally, going into this full moon in Aries?
Full Moon in Aries oppose Sun in Libra 10/5
This Full Moon asks the question of how to balance our receptive nature versus our assertive nature.  Also, are you receiving the love you want and how are you handling it if you’re not?  You need to create some healing for those inner emotions by finding your happy place within.  Doing the things that make you happy, being the places you want to be, and doing the things you want to do.  No one should be making you feel guilty for following your heart.
