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.

NEW MOON IN PISCESMARCH 17TH, 2018 (1)

 

On March 17th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Pisces at 26°.  The 26-degree mark of Pisces represents recovering after a calamity, twists of fate, and having courage in tough situations.  This is a time where self-confidence is brought to the test. As this being the last days before spring when everything becomes new again, we must be ready to work a proper intention, based on intuition and creativity.  There is anticipation here as well as impatience because you have been in a cocoon for so long.  This New Moon is ushering in something new, do not be afraid of change, and recognize the unstableness in your life.  Do not be afraid, be encouraged.  Make sure that you keep all options open, and really trust your intuition(gut) as to where or what your next move should be.  Do not be provoked by glamour, be provoked by your living soul.  The third Decan of Pisces represents the beginnings of mood changes, so you will no doubt be on your toes in one way or another.  Learning how to deal with fluctuating emotions are important, based on the fact that you do not know what others are going through internally.  You will barely be able to understand yourself.  This New Moon will ask you to rely on your psychic proclivities above all things, so by being out of tune with yourself, you can see how that may create problems.  This will be a time of psychic vampires that are looking to create drama and negative situations in order to feed, make sure you are a great distance away from it, grab some popcorn and enjoy it.  (If you’re into that kind of thing)

 

There will be a major Square to Mars in Sagittarius during this New Moon cycle, bringing those intense dramatic feelings to the surface for purging, certain things cannot be repressed during this time so watch out.  Learn how to find healthy alternatives for venting and clearing yourself of frustration so you can be clear on your inner guidance system, to bring about proper intentions.  You want to avoid placing an intention to cover up past mistakes, its time to blow it all up and start fresh.  Set completely new intentions from the soul.  Tap into your instincts rather than what you think you know, by doing this you will tap into energies and manifest situations you couldn’t even dream about.  The New Moon in Pisces is telling you to trust yourself, follow your soul, and be clear on what the soul is saying.  The limits that we place on ourselves are the limits we will have during this transit.  Do not look to make rash decisions even in adversity, as the seasons’ change and the Sun transitions into Aries, there will be a great revelation.  All mistakes will be rectified.  With a Square to Mars, there may be a tendency to do things in a thoughtless fashion. It is very possible to do things during this cycle that we will greatly regret.  Learning how to adjust on the fly and being in the moment, is key.  For some of us, this is a test of self-confidence and consistency.  Do not give up on projects you started based on they are not going the way you think, if you truly want it, you may have to ride out the self-doubt until a breakthrough occurs.

 

The New Moon will be trine Jupiter in Scorpio inspiring a generosity towards yourself.  As you expand towards a deeper understanding of transformation and what it means for you, this is a time to really feed yourself the information you truly need.  Hang out with people that you truly want to be with, read books that truly resonate with you, and don’t be afraid to try new things.  This is a relaxing New Moon if we are able to let go and let the new flowers grow.  Share your real emotions with others, socialize, and do things that increase your mood.  This will be a time of increased popularity and notoriety as long as you stay in your truth.  Bonds can grow from this transit based on honesty and truth.  You can expect an increase in material wealth as well as influential friends who share the same mind as you.  Jupiter will be in Retrograde for next 4 months.  Jupiter will be looking for poison or any blockages to happiness and success.  The things that come up during the next 4 months will be things we need to correct, not continue to ignore.  

 

During this New Moon cycle, there are some transits affecting the North Node that are of note as well.  There will be an inconjunction to Neptune in Pisces, wanting you to highlight the motivations behind your behaviors, and get those in check.  You may be doing things that others simply want you to do whether it is at work, in relationships, or with family.  When the goal is to listen to the soul and do the things you truly want.  There is also a Square to Jupiter that makes it hard to just go along with the status quo, you have to follow your own personal prompts.

 

What Chiron/Moon eventually comes to understand is that the physical world is not the opposite of the divine world, the two are one.

 

This New Moon represents a deep need to succeed and be successful, and what you need and don’t need for that process to manifest correctly.  Strive to live with purpose and determination over passiveness.  It is a time to solve the mystery of you and why you were put on this earth.  Pay attention to your studies and personal interactions as they represent a psychological mirror.  The things you see in them that you like or dislike are indications of things you need to work on.  Exercise, Pet projects, and hobbies are what may be needed to remove those energies that disturb you, in order for you to be free to listen to your living soul.    

 

Orisha of the Week

Olosȧ

Pisces is ruled by the Orisha Olokun.  Olokun represents the deep subconscious mind, soul, inner God, and key to abundance and wealth.  Based on the abstract nature of our subconscious mind, getting into contact with Olokun is often seem to be impossible.  You need to go through the proper channels.  Olokun has a sister/wife known by the name of Olosȧ to which he/she issues his/her messages to.  Olosa is the Orisha of Lagoons she represents the lagoons that precede the ocean.  She is one of the survivors of Ancient Egypt, as the deity Sobek.  Sobek was the deity of power, fertility, and magic.  He also was a protective deity.  Sobek was a crocodile God, like Olosa.  The crocodile represents your reptilian brain, tapping into this aspect is where the magic happens.  Olosa is known as the deepest Oshun, the Oshun that makes music, she is one of the hardest most strict of the paths of Oshun.  Her color is Pearl.  She transmits messages to Olokun. (Pisces New Moon) She will help in the realms of beauty, love, hatred, severity, inflexibility, tolerance, and sensuality.

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.

New Moon in Scorpio — Walking on frozen water

On November 18th, 2017 we will be experiencing a New Moon in Scorpio.  New Moons represent the beginning of a new cycle as well as an end to an old cycle.  Scorpio’s power is that of transformation, death, and rebirth.  This time is a time of setting the stage for the next act in your life.

Scorpio also reveals the underlying motivations for particular harmful behaviors.  This particular New Moon will be in the 3rd decan, ushering an inside look at the problems of societies aimlessness.  Behaviors that are particularly damaging to the inner child’s development, will be highlighted and hopefully extinguished.  You have to see the actual damage that is being done to actually be inspired to do something about it.  This New Moon will point out the problems with alternative parenting, teenage depression, and opiate deaths of teenagers.  Normality and structure are frowned upon in this society, to its detriment nonetheless.  All you have to do is look at the President if we truly want to see what this country is all about.  This is a good time to switch off the “News” and spend some time in the darkness of the New Moon.  The womb of creation.

The three days leading up to the New Moon is referred to as the Dark Moon period when the moon becomes invisible which represents a liminal time.  The liminal figure I want to bring your attention to during this period is the Orisha Olokun.  These are times of transition and transformation.  Olokun represents the dark and cold bottom of the ocean.  The deep part where no light can get and no heat.  Just the dead marine life and plants that slowly travel to the lowest depths of the sea which no man can survive.  From these depths, Olokun stretches her wisdom and forms a bridge from one place to another.  Olokun represents the untouched and unmarked ideas embedded deep in your subconscious mind.  During the Dark Moon with proper concentration and focus, one can fulfill his wildest desires and hopes. Olokun holds the mysteries.  These times hold tremendous magical power if you’re not afraid of the Dark.  Certain deities are not discussed as much as others based on the liminality of the certain diety.  Most people are not ready to make the major transitions and transformations that require a change in scenery, environment, or perception.  There is a tremendous energy bestowing generosity and power if one deals with his/her interior.

This New Moon brings change based on its Uranus inconjunction.  Most people fear change and will find it hard to integrate themselves.  Learn to be flexible and open to change.  Set positive intentions through ritual.  Concentration and Focus is the solution to stagnation.  Making minor changes could bring major results if you take heed.
