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 – 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.

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 – Solar Eclipse 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.

The Solar Eclipse that happens August 21st, 2017 at 2:24 EST is a New Moon, in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location.  The Sun and the Moon will be conjunct at 28 degrees Leo, the second New Moon in the constellation in a row.  This Solar eclipse will be joined by the North Node and Mars not too far behind.  It will also be conjunct the Royal Star Regulus and trine Uranus, signifying major and abrupt changes.

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.

We want to take a look at the symbolism of the Sphinx since we are at the end of Leo (Lion) and the beginning of Virgo (Virgin).  These two constellations together form the Sphinx, the face of a goddess and the body of a lion.  The Sphinx is the Guardian of Entrances and Thresholds.  This could represent doorways, new ideas, higher planes of wisdom, and kundalini/deep personal transformations.  The Sphinx is the stabilizing element in the midst of the rapid change we will endure.  At a deeper level, the Sphinx represents the four elements, the four levels of existence.  We are at one of four points in life, we will, we have willed, we are without the will, or we will again.  (To Know, To Will, To Dare and To Keep Silent; these four elements, summed with a fifth, called Spirit, form the pentagram)  As one cycle ends a new cycle of a higher degree begins, the Sphinx sits at the entrance of this new cycle.

This present Solar Eclipse takes place on top of the Fixed Star Regulus, The Heart of Leo.  Regulus is pure divine-masculine energy, it is a Royal Star.  Royal Stars are believed to govern major events in the world, events that take place while Regulus was involved were amplified and serious.  It represents destruction, that can be scary, but we all have things we need to destroy.  Use the energy to destroy obstacles, habits, and any energy no longer serving you.  A solar eclipse with Regulus gives success, power, authority, influence, honor, and wealth.  This is the energy that is available.  Know your enemies and don’t play with them, this is not the time frenemies.

This Solar Eclipse will also be trine Uranus in Aries and trine Saturn in Sagittarius, forming a fire sign Grand Trine.  The celestial activity will once again reignite this trine in the heavens and also within.   Uranus in Aries brings abundance and sudden transformative changes.  Saturn in Sagittarius is bringing purpose and focus to the party.  Through discipline, we are actually inviting freedom into our lives.  This New Moon Solar Eclipse favors those who have an innovative and inventive spirit.

The Mars expression in this Solar Eclipse is about getting what you want and protecting what is yours.  In the future or present sense.  Do you have a plan or a course of action to get what you want or are you angry that you don’t have what you want?  These energies will be amplified and repeated over the course of this month.

Basically, this Solar Eclipse is a fresh slate in the realms of opportunities, plans, and manifestations.  All possibilities are on the table so write it down, and create a course of action.

Mercury Retrogrades August 12th, 11 degrees Virgo and Stations Direct September 5th, 28 degrees Leo, the same exact point of the Solar Eclipse.  The challenge of this Mercury Retrograde is relationships and your ability to trust, be honest, communicate, and love unconditionally. Disruption and deceit will be normal during this three-week retrograde period. If we can be honest and understanding there is no limit as to where we can be in life.  If we are holding things in, the strain of it all could lead to a meltdown.  As Mercury stations direct and weaves its way back from which it came, we must institute that which we have learned from the turbulent Retrograde period, to go into this new cycle with refreshed or new relationships.

This Week in Astrology – Lunar Eclipse in Leo (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.

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius August 7th

On August 7th, 2017 the Sun in Leo will be opposed the Moon in Aquarius forming a Lunar Eclipse.  Earlier this year we had a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius as well, so this transit is reigniting our freedom or isolation feelings, let us understand that they are one in the same, the only difference is perspective.  This Lunar Eclipse is doubling down on the fire energy with Mars conjunct the Sun.  Mars is initiating passion and giving us the undeniable urge to create, the will, and the energy to do something we can be proud of.
The opposition comes in via old feelings making their way to the surface, the key is to recognize them, but don’t focus on them.  Staying on task and keeping your focus is important.  With this new found focus, old things must come to an end, that frees up space for new things to begin. How will you take action? How will you express your truth? How will you move forward?

Mars will be in Leo this whole month so expect this intense energy to persist through the entire month of August.  You have to focus on your balancing of emotions and honor the changes you have made.  Don’t think to respond to every attack, even the deep ones.  At a certain level, we are all faced with particular challenges and tests that we all have to man up against.  You have been building and working on your issues, the new you may scare those that are closest to you that wish you stay the same.   #staywoke

Making sure you are not your own worst enemy and making a conscious decision to pursue your soul’s purpose, will bring about miraculous results in your professional life.  Meeting these challenges head on, with your new found swagger, you reach a level of growth never seen before.   Don’t miss out on ecliptic once in a lifetime opportunities because you wanted to focus on negative emotions.   Walking and talking your truth is sometimes the only therapy you need.  With so much bottled up and stressful emotions weighing you down, learning to free yourself, and express yourself is key to transformation.  Learn how to listen to your gut and move from that point of reference.  Your gut never lies.

In the realm of relationships, don’t take on too much, save room for yourself.  When you take on too much it creates resentment.  Make sure you keep the lines of communication open, people can’t read your mind, be honest with your partner.  These things show up real ugly if not taken care of.  Now that Venus out of Gemini and in Cancer what we love is now in more of a focus.  Self-Love creates an ambiance that can reign down on the whole household if done correctly.  The hate from a distance is apparent as well, pay it no mind.  It’s important to develop a healthy creative outlet for the internal negative energy and not share it with your partner.

As we begin to adopt more prosperous and healthy thoughts, this sets the tone for your rain of good fortune and luck.  The negativity that is rising is just coming to the surface and out of your body.  That is how energy flows, up and out.  Energy doesn’t flow down and in, that is just suppression it doesn’t leave that way.  Don’t focus on it, let it go.  If we accept and incorporate this magical ecliptic opposition we will experience miraculous moments of discovery.

Jupiter in Libra Square Pluto in Capricorn  August 4th, 2017

Jupiter square Pluto is a challenge to you and it asks the question; Are you willing to do what it takes to get to where you need to be?  Are you emotionally ready for the next step?  Will adversity disrupt your focus?

This transit can feel like a GPS, all you have to do is plug in your destination, and follow directions.  If you get lost, make a wrong turn, make 3 wrong turns, it’s going to lead you to where you need to be without judgment.  Are you ready to trust your gut and let your spirit lead the way? Do you have a destination?  Don’t get comfortable with not having what you want.  Strive towards the behaviors and thoughts that are conducive to your success.

Uranus Retrograde August 4th

Time to revisit a past tragedy and reconfigure your emotions surrounding that event.  What did you learn? How has it helped you? What could you do differently and how would it be if you did? How much have you grown since then?  The past is simply a tool we can learn from, it is a mistake to continue to let the past bring you grief in your present reality.  During the retrograde of Uranus, we process things internally and receive the external rewards or lessons.   Make changes to the past.
