New Moon in Aries (April 15th 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 April 15th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Aries at 26°.  The 26th Degree Mark of Aries speaks to overcoming, being inventive, and nonconforming.   Finding answers to solutions through unconventional means.  Under the persona you have created lies deeper work that has to be done.  Ultimately this point represents finding a new way to solve an old problem.   Since this New Moon is in the 3rd decan of  Aries it represents a point of mediation and reconciliation of your life.  Which makes this New Moon, in particular, a powerful one to be experienced or observed.

New Moons represent a time for setting intentions.  Due to coming off of a waning period of releasing and purging, our needs and desires are different.  This is important to understand that we shouldn’t set an intention based on what we think we need.  We can set the intention that is best for our purpose and deepest soul’s desire.  When we set our own intentions more than likely we are trying to manifest a situation to cover a void instead of dealing with it directly.  When doing this, it creates more problems then we had before even deciding to set an intention.  That is why it is best to enter into New Moons with a clean slate and pure heart.   Use the waning time to prepare and cleanse your being of unwanted hinderances and blocks.

During a Full Moon, the Sun is in opposition to the Moon giving it light to project into your mind.  During the New Moon, the Sun and Moon are conjunct/together actually blocking the Sun/light and allowing your Emotions to override your sensibilities.  So when we are speaking of what we want and desire during this time it is not based on anything spiritual, it is based filling a void or creating an expectation to meet that will supposedly make you happy.  It is better to enter this New Moon with concepts rather than realities.  Things like gratitude, prosperity, and health.  As opposed to something specific.  Focus on how we want to feel rather than what we want to experience.  Because you may experience what you want and it makes you feel like shit.  In summation, you may not know what you want.

“A new moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees the imagination from material limits.Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for!”

The New Moon in Aries will be conjunct Uranus signaling a very dramatic time in the world and for the individual.  We all will be going through changes in one way or another.  It is a time to stand up and think outside the box and awaken the latent forces inside of you that you always knew you had but now it is time to use them.    

Ultimately we have to separate truth from facts in our life.  Align with the truth of our being and act out that reality instead of focusing on old facts of a prior existence that no longer serve us.  This is a new beginning and an ending to understanding who we really are on this planet and in this life during this time.  Things that were once comfortable being hidden will no longer find comfort in secrecy.  Uranus’ influence on this New Moon will be forcing us to bring things to the surface.  These shadow influences need to be talked about, addressed and brought to the surface.

There will be a Uranus square Pluto aspect that will be activated during the New Moon in Aries.  Whenever Uranus and Pluto come together in any aspect they represent the necessary and revolutionary changes that have to take place in the collective and the individual.  In this instance, it is a square so it is representing a hardship or a situation that needs to be overcome.  Pluto represents death to who we believe we are and rebirth to what we truly are.  Uranus represents the breaking down of our belief structures and opens us up to what we truly are.  These energies allow us to transform into what we are truly put on this earth to be.    When Pluto and Uranus are together, this creates more of a forceful awakening to who we are.  It encourages us to go beyond our current reality and it is showing us in what ways we can actually do that.  The trouble is trying to run from what is being shown to you at this time, the things that inspire change and growth.  What is truly taking place is a breakdown of old structures and if this is something that disturbs you then it is the breaking down of the structure it is the relationship you have to an old decaying form of being.  Understanding and incorporating the divine feminine into your energy is very key at this time.  (<<<< Check my video on Pomba Gira for more insight)  If you are dealing with your structures falling apart or the old ways of doing things no longer working than you are in perfect alignment for change.  The old must breakdown so it can become renewed and empowered to be something greater than before. If you are experiencing good times in your life will be more magical and more amazing than ever before because you have been through the breakdown to breakthrough process. 

 The Venus in Taurus opposed Jupiter in Scorpio transit will be highlighted during this New Moon transit.  Bringing to surface some family issues versus business and creative pursuits. Ultimately, try to bring those forces into one picture, because currently they are opposed.  Venus in Taurus represents the possessive attachment we have to physical pleasures.  Jupiter in Scorpio is one’s opportunity to figure out the best solution for your greatest expansion.  An opposition is an irreconcilable inner force.  Some things will never be what we want them to be but we need to understand where those points are so we don’t try to force it.   If you have any interest in the meaning of life itself then this transit will affect you.  If you are concerned about external things and the meaning of life means nothing to you then carry on as normal.  If you are concerned however then it is time to start taking directions in answering those questions you have.  Avoiding it will be the cause of much distress and confusion.

The New Moon in Aries is conjunct with Uranus highlighting the possibility of conflict with the established routines and feelings, with the disruptive energy of Uranus.  Take note of your heart and take note of how your head directs you it directions away from your heart.  If this is happening, make the proper adjustments.  There are almost certain to be surprises in your life during this New Moon phase but it’s important to shake yourself of any routine that is leading you to a place you ultimately don’t want to be in.

Using this energy correctly brings about much success, although problems may seem to be insurmountable.  Finding creative outlets for our ideas and visions is most rewarding.  This is a time to awaken to stereotypes and stigmas that don’t fit you or align with you on the inner level.  It’s easy to be seen as a show-off or seeking attention when you are simply being yourself.  As the saying goes, “if you have haters then you must be doing something right” 

Orisha of the Week

Ogun

This New Moon in Aries above all things represents acting out of self-awareness as opposed to acting out of routine or habit.  No orisha symbolizes this behaviour more than Ogun.  Ogun represents Mars, the ruling planet of Aries.  Ogun represents our assertive and aggressive actions that need to take place for creation to take place.  Ultimately understanding and realizing your highest potential by creating yourself in the image you would like to be.  You have a choice to become a weapon or a tool.  This is what Ogun’s energy speaks to.  Ogun has the intelligence and creativity to invent tools, weapons, and technology.  He has the strength to create a path for the individual.  When you see the machete or the knife that Ogun creates you may think it is a weapon but you must realize that a knife can kill and it can also save you if surgery is required.

“Herukhuti/Ogun….This is the energy within us that removes obstacles that impede us from continuing on our journey to spiritual growth, development and enlightenment. Herukhuti is fiery energy that we can use to “burn” off the antiquated parts of ourselves. In one respect, Herukhuti’s energy is great because he says, “Do it NOW!” However, the challenge in that is actually releasing those parts of ourselves that don’t serve us any longer.”

Ogun has many different paths, the one I want to call to your attention that is applicable to this article is OGGUN ONILE.  “Oggun Onile means “the owner of the land”. It is called this way when it walks through unexplored lands, hunting and discovering. Its title refers to the first that arrives at a virgin place and is established in it, being the first to work it.”  Ogun like many Orishas is syncretized and transferred from earlier Egyptian deities.  In this case, Ogun is Heru-Khuti.  Heru-Khuti is the divine principle that safeguards our existence by any means, he protects you from injustices, and constantly upholds the law “you reap what you sow”.  Heru Khuti operates under the premise that God neither punishes nor rewards nor protects, it is your responsibility.  We are dealing with the fundamental principle that we create our adversity by tuning into our original nature we remove all obstacles instantly.  So the goal is not revenge, the goal is to raise our level of understanding and grow in spirituality.

“In the Kamitic tradition, it is the form in which Heru fights against Set in order to regain the throne (control over one’s life) that the latter usurped. While Heru corresponds to the steady supply of noradrenaline that enables us to carry out all activities of externalization, Herukhuti (Heru-Behutet) corresponds to the extreme surges of adrenalin that support our aggressive, sexual arousal and immune responses.”

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 — Full Moon in Taurus

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 November 4th, 2017 there will be a Full Moon in Taurus opposed the Sun in Scorpio.  20 minutes before the Sun and the Moon come into exact opposition, Venus in Libra and Uranus in Aries come into an exact opposition as well.  This means a lot of change is in store in the realms of perception and love.

The Full Moon in Taurus at the 11th Degree invites happy and smooth outcomes to any problem you may be facing on the material plane.  The Sun in Scorpio finds us answering for our past mistakes.  Denial and blameshifting are not looked upon favorably at this time alternatively accountability and taking responsibility for past mistakes will be rewarded favorably under this full moon.   The differences between the two actions mentioned above are whether you learned from your mistake or are you going to throw a pity party for yourself because you couldn’t live up to a particular standard.  This Full Moon is keeping you grounded through any turmoil you may be experiencing and will show up as a proverbial life raft in the nick of time.   Learning to unplug your self from outside sources and connect with yourself to align with what you love.

Venus will be opposing Uranus exactly 20 minutes before the full moon reaches it’s exact opposition, highlighting changes in your love life.  This is not limited to romantic love but anything you are connected to on a deep spiritual level.  What makes this a magical full moon is that no matter your present conditions or limitations, it will not be a factor during this time.  You can enact quick and rapid change for yourself at this time.  Will it last forever? That’s a whole other subject.  If you focus on areas where you are competent it will have effects in the areas where you lack competence.  Overall, change and excitement are on the cusp ready to spill over into your life, so be encouraged.

This Full Moon has an aspect of Neptune mixed in this go around, ushering in the magic to this current transit.  Neptune is the watery and illusionary world we live in.  Where we are and our current situation is 100% transitory.  We are in a state of constant flux and are generally positioned wherever are dominant thoughts lead us.  Where are your thoughts leading you? In the upcoming days reflect and examine your thoughts, determine your dominant thoughts, and you will determine your destination.  This is a time when your psychic abilities will be on high and your intuition will have you in the right place at the right time.  The work required during this Full Moon transit is for you to practice allowing instead of blocking.

This Week in Astrology – New Moon in Libra

This New Moon in Libra brings luck, misfortune, jokes, happenstance, and sudden changes.  This New Moon like all New Moons mark an ending of an old cycle and the beginning of a new cycle.  The New Moon is also known as the Dark Moon because it can not be seen at night with zero illumination.  This is in alignment with the darker aspects of  third decan Libra, just steps away from the transformative Scorpio, which this New Moon falls on.  Making the feeling of shifts and transitions palpable to the senses.  As we sail into the unknown, we can choose our emotion, since we truly don’t know where we are headed.  We can choose to be excited or dreadful.  The Suns travel through Virgo and Libra post eclipse has given us time to examine and analyze, now the time comes to make a decision moving into Scorpio.  This may not be a physical alignment more so an emotional commitment.  This New Moon being aligned with Jupiter matches our optimism with circumstance.  Words like happenstance, coincidence, and luck come into play during this time.  Putting yourself in the proper alignment mentally and emotionally is important.  Mercury’s influence on this New Moon provides the Comic Relief of this otherwise tough transit.  Comedy is based on truthful observations of daily life.  Noticing these baseless behaviors will provide a chuckle, giving you the proper alignment to experience the light within the darkness.   Can you recognize the joke and accept it, would be the question I would ask.  The most powerful aspect of this New Moon transit is its opposition to Uranus in Aries.  Uranus signifies major change, when there is an opposition to Uranus you can expect something big.  Donald Trump has a Moon oppose Uranus transit in his natal chart, as well as other polarizing celebrities.  You can expect this energy to create a massive flip out, so be conscious of how you personally will respond to this sudden change of events.

This Week in Astrology (New 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.

Fire Sign Grand Trine
We are experiencing a Fire Sign Grand Trine with the planets and constellations Aries in Uranus, Leo in the North Node, and Saturn in Sagittarius. When you have three planets forming a perfect triangle, this forms a Grand Trine. So if you allow this energy to inspire you, it will support harmony and ease in your everyday endeavors. This energy is empowering the individual’s perseverance and determination when following the soul but not in a passive way, in an energetic and passionate way. So once again, this is the beginning to a build up of energy in the sign of Leo that will lead us into a Solar Eclipse in August. The North Node in Leo will be featured, as well as this Fire Sign Grand Trine. With all that being said, this is a powerful time to manifest and set your sights on your destiny. If you are not forging your life, then it will be very unfortunate for you, there will be no more excuses. We must do the things we know we need to do, we can not expect others to pick up the slack. If we use this energy correctly, we will begin to change our realities in amazing ways.

Venus Square Pluto
Now that Venus has come out of the Shadow, we can begin to be clear about what we want and don’t want. We are experiencing clarity when it comes to our needs. That can show up differently depending on the situation. One might have to tell their partner how they need to be loved and that news may not be taken so well. One could be ready to start a relationship that is worth their while. Ultimately this is a time of endings and new beginnings, so don’t be afraid to walk and talk in truth, the energy is supported. With the New moon, it is time to cultivate the Love Life we desire, now combined with the magic of Pluto in Capricorn, one has to understand that however this plays out, it is in alignment with your highest good.

New Moon in Gemini

The Moon is dealing with your unconscious energy, you may or may not like the reflection that the Moon is setting forward. It could also be that people are projecting their dark and unconscious energy on you. Understanding that these deep-rooted issues have to come up to the surface if you intend to heal, may put some of the untimely things in perspective. Ultimately this is signaling of you to take responsibility for your own reality. This is a time to sow the seeds of your future. This is a magical time, whenever there are times like these the distractions are heavy. We are called to be focused on working with the rhythm of nature, aligning our minds, hearts, and bodies to that which we seek. The New Moon also falls on Thursday which is ruled by Jupiter, signaling that if we want to make changes financially, we have to use this energy to be empowered to take the next step. This is a time for ascendance and mastery, so be empowered. Ultimately ask questions and be prepared to not like the answers you hear, but find comfort in knowing the truth.
