The Sun in Scorpio trines the Moon in Cancer.

Mercury conjuncts the Jupiter.

Mars forms a semi-square with Saturn.

 

The Sun in Scorpio trines the Moon in Cancer. The Sun in Scorpio represents our identity, saying this… our inner energy is more intense, emotional and we feel more inclined to seek out hidden truths no matter the cost. The Moon however, is all about our emotional feelings, and in its home sign of Cancer that means that part of us that loves to nurture, be connected to family, to love, along with our intuitive and sensitive side and will be the emotions/energies strongest felt today.

Mercury conjuncts the lucky planet Jupiter. So today there will be a large focus on the way you communicate with others and how you communicate will determine how you bring about luck and expansion into your life and into theirs. This Mercury/Jupiter conjunction also inspires optimism, hope and a hint of excitement. Mercury and Jupiter reach their final alignment in star sign of Scorpio, which leads us to gaining insight into a problem, talking through issues, and seeing

Today is a unique day! It’s going to be all about forgiveness and healing. It will be about the “Why” you actually feel out with someone, or insight to any other type of miscommunication in any relationship breakdown. Healing is very possible today yay! Reconciliation is the theme for today as all parties will be able to acknowledge the part they played in a relationship breakdown. Have you been estranged from a family member, a partner or close friend? Today is the day to pick up the phone and say “i want you back in my life”.  This is largely to do with Venus retrograde in Scorpio. Venus being in Scorpio is a highly emotional position for Venus to sit in. Besides being very passionate, intense, and oh so very dark and sensual Venus in Scorpio treasures closeness along with our most valuable relationships are extremely important, actually overwhelming and consuming at times. So if you notice those around you or directly connected to you are having relationship problems this is due to the vulnerability Scorpio feels, the fear of being close or exposing your softer side to others, it’s also stemming from hidden truths and feelings being brought to the surface for healing and transformation. Dint put yourself in an all or nothing” situation if you think healing is available especially until October 31st when Venus enters into a new sign.

With Mercury in Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio and the Sun in Scorpio expect the energy to be intense and passionate, as you seeks truths in all that is hidden and hush-hush. Our communication and thought process especially around the matters of our heart, personal matters and the way we look at our self-will be more probing, deeply emotional and intense. Scorpio is great for self-healing and transformation if you are ready to take a real look at yourself and accept the parts of you that you may not like.  It’s wonderful that we all get an added boost of passion, mystery and strength, just watch out for the less favorable traits as jealously, manipulation and being vindictive.

However, it’s not all so nurturing and happy days… unfortunately we see a clash between Mars and Saturn. This morning expects to feel some tension rising as Mars forms a semi-square with Saturn. With these two masculine energies against each other today you may feel restricted and repressed. Saturn energy is all about learning, structure and mastering your life. Mars is the planet that drives our will and motivation so when they go head to head expect your strong desires to succeed and create to lead to road blocks and complications. Negative emotions such as frustration, jealously, anger and tempers will flare up today especially in regards to authority figures such as your boss, manager or family members. Don’t let yourself be effected by the limiting and rejecting feelings that may arise from the built up influences of Saturn and Mars, let your desire of finishing goals and ripping down restrictions and old beliefs be the drive you need today.  This is not a winning or overly pleasant transit and the best approach now is a not be over defensive but flexible especially if are feeling more resistance, just know everyone around you is being influenced the same so if tempers arise de-escalate the mood quickly even if you know you have not done a thing to feel someone else wrath.

Patience, perseverance and empathy will be your strong points today!

With so much going ion today just take it one person and one step at a time! Happy Monday gang!

 

The Taurus Full Moon illuminates beauty, Love and Sensuality! 2018

 

Happy Full Moon Day! This Full Moon is going to be something else! The Full Moon enters Taurus today. I like most I have felt the energy of this Full Moon build all week. A Full Moon is when the Sun in Scorpio at 1 degrees fully illuminates the Moon, it also conjuncts Retrograde Venus in 4 degrees Scorpio. The Moon also conjuncts Uranus.

The Scorpio Sun at 1 degree wants some sort of emotional experience and Venus in retrograde at 4 degrees tells us that we are entitled and deserve to have an amazing emotional experience. The energy reminds you that “Yes” are meant to explore, experiment, have fun and live a little. It also invites us to dig deep, to seek and experience things you have never experienced before. Perhaps on the naughtier side of life. This week Venus and the Sun are both in a planetary placement that tempt you to try out new things, be adventurous behave in ways you normally wouldn’t.

The Full Moon is when the Sun sits opposite to the Moon at 180 degrees from each other. Full Moons are a time of strengthened intuition, heightened emotions, and you can observe unusual activity happening around you or occurring to other people. I can tell you the Full Moon makes my pets a little loony, and others can report some sleep disturbances!

This Full Moon in Taurus astrological speaking, with the rest of the universe in play is going to be pretty much bag of mixed energies. As I mentioned earlier we are in a Retrograde Venus however we also have Uranus, the planet of sudden change, revolt and the unexpected conjunct the Full Moon!

So my dear friends, ready or not BIG CHANGE is coming for us… The real challenge for us is going to be are we ready to embrace change, all the positive side and traits of Scorpio? Are you ready to go beneath the surface? To really let go of yourself and to feel intensely? Are you ready to allow yourself to transform? We must remember for change to occur we need to release old patterns and habits along with any old attachments. We must let our old identity die so we can embrace whatever change life throws at us. Particularly with all these retrograde about, telling and showing us the old beliefs that needs transforming.

This month’s Moon will be illuminated with Taurus energy that will shine down on us. Taurus energy is all about the real world, stability, structure,  finances, practicality, money, wealth, relationships, enjoying life, food, being grounded in nature, sensuality, physical body and beauty. This Full Moon is going to urge us to do something, to create something wonderful, something physical or birth something new in any of the areas I just mentioned.  This Full Moon is about  putting yourself out there and experience all the sensuality the world has to offer. Uranus the planet of eccentricity is sitting on top of Taurus stirring the pot for unexpected, radical excitement and unexpected change. This along with Venus retrograde will help illuminate you with all those twisted desires and energies that will results in physical manifestations and actions that in no means would you normally act on.

This Full Moon being in the sign of Taurus, will feel comfortable and safe. The Moon likes sitting in this sign, as we know the Moon represents our feelings and inner world. Taurus is about solidity and sensuality in aspects not only physical but in our taste, our touch, or views, using all the senses. Taurus is about if you can sense it and touch it, than it is real. The Moon in Taurus wants us to take a change, get rid of the feelings of old, the feelings that weigh you down and blur your vision of the beauty that is around you. Take all that stagnant, emotional energy and stomp it on the ground. Awaken your senses be alive! This transformational Full Moon combined with the Sun in Scorpio is really guiding us to in touch with our own complexity and how we respond in any relationship.

 

Happy Full Moon week!

We Enter Scorpio Season 23/10/2018.

 

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018.

Gibbous Moon in Aries.

The Sun enters Scorpio.

The Sun leaves behind diplomatic and harmonious Libra to enter the deep, mystical and emotional waters of Scorpio where it will remain until November 22nd. When the Sun which represents our ego swims in the darkness of Scorpio, inner and outer transformation is now highlighted for us. Power, liberation and our need to create emotional and powerful connections with others is our motivation this month. We seek experiences that engage and strengthen our intimacy and seek hidden truths. Scorpio governs matters to do with life, death, transformation as Scorpio is associated with the rising phoenix, sexuality, intimacy, relationships, destruction, renewal and regeneration.

With the Sun now entering Scorpio our eyes are more open to realms of the mystic. The veil between the worlds is lifted only enough for us to encounter the spirit realm and all things ghostly. Halloween’s history originates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived over 2,000 years ago celebrated their new year on November 1. Its symbolic nature is one of marking the end of summer and the embarking of a cold, dark winter which mean,t unfortunately for a lot of people, it was a time of year that was often associated with death. The Celt tradition also talks about the last day of October, the night before their new year, in which the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred or as I mention the veil was lifted. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. Allowing us to see beyond the boundaries we generally assume are firmly in place. So keep your eyes open as you never know you may encounter small ghouls on our doorstep seeking treats to keep evil away!Happy Halloween!

Don’t forget, this week brings the Full Moon in the sign of Taurus.

The Full Moon on October 25th  at 2 Taurus times are as follows…

SYDNEY: October 25, 3.45am
NEW YORK: October 24, 12.45pm
LONDON: October 24, 5.45pm

Today is a BIG DEAL!! A LUNAR ECLIPSE 27/7/18

Friday, July 27, 2018

Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius.

Full Moon blessings, everyone. Today brings us to the big deal a Lunar Eclipse big deal. Today is the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius. A Lunar Eclipse always occurs on a Full Moon and is basically an amped-up magnified Full Moon on steroids. This eclipse is extra potent astronomically as it’s the longest total lunar eclipse in the 21st century, how exciting. This Full Moon is known as a Blood Moon and its energy is steering us in a direction of change and progress.

A Full Moon is where the Sun and Moon are sitting at 180 degrees from each other. The Moon is completely illuminated and thus showers us with its Luna energy here on earth. Traditionally a Full Moon is a completion point of the lunar cycle and is when the Moon recharges its batteries. We also experience a burst of strong energy as the Moon is highlighted with the Suns energy and that is why people here on earth can act strange or loony during a Full Moon.a Total Lunar Eclipse, is when  the Earth passes between the Sun & the Moon, the Earth with block the Suns rays from FULLY reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is fully cast within Earth’s shadow.

The Total Lunar Eclipse at 4’44 Aquarius is right smack on aggressive and sharp Mars retrograde on the karmic south node and comes in close contact to rebellious Uranus. These are very volatile energies coming into play. This also means for us we have some MAJOR  intensification of the karmic energies we are working with or through. I wont lie these next few days has the potential to cause emotional distress and detachment as Aquarius energy offers perspective and even indifference or distance if necessary.The difficulties deep rooted in this eclipse may unfold in our personal circumstances or you may watch it unfold in the outer world. Pay attention!

We also have Mars at closest alignment with Earth from July 27th-31st. He will appear to us  the brightest he has been since 2003 and a fun fact Mars will outshine Jupiter by 1.8 times.

Mars Retrograde is going to be a time when many of us are faced with shadow work. It’s main focus and a chance for us to change will be transforming our relationship, within and without of us. Unfortunately these shadow aspects are going to bring up certain dynamics around our ego, anger, jealously, aggression and rage in our personal relationships, but it does give us a chance to bring any underlying issues to light for transformation and change. Watch your temper and the urge to snap at those you love. Remember that trying to be all things to all people vs having real relationships is about finding a balance without giving to much away or alternatively taking to much for others. Aquarius luna energy means we will be more independent and creative whilst seeking change and being service to others.

As I mentioned this eclipse forms a square to Uranus, and Uranus loves to present us with the most unexpected plot twist! Today can be a sense of surprise, shock, or frustration as we get answers or revolutions into the emotions we’re confronted now with the eclipse.This Full Moon eclipse detach from others and your own mind and let go.

Look for the area or house in your chart that holds 4° Aquarius. This will highlight and indicates the area of life that requires a great deal of attention over the coming months. Remember this Eclipse energy can be felt for months after the event has happened. A new story or a change in the story in this area of life will develop from what occurs now. So pay attention.

This Full Moon the energy is steering us in a direction of change and progress. keep your eyes open as you give of yourself to help others. Helping others is the best way to care for yourself. Release what no longer works for you or is holding you down! Breath and let go, try to enjoy this eclipse it truly is a turning point.

Happy full moon day.

The Moon is in Sagittarius

The Moon in Sagittarius forms a challenging aspect to both Venus and Neptune.

The Sun in Leo sesquiquadrates retrograde Neptune in Pisces.

There may be a sense of listlessness in the air when you awake this morning. You’d like to pull the covers over your head and resist facing the day at all.

The Moon is in Sagittarius which normally keeps us feeling upbeat, adventurous, open and ready to learn and experience new ideas and directions. However, the Moon forms a challenging aspect to both Venus and Neptune. Today don’t be surprised if you feel as you are being pulled in different directions, or somewhat unmotivated and lazy! As much as you’d like to pull the covers over your head and resist facing the day or looking for an easy escape may seem like the ideal thing to do, however I can assure you that if you push yourself to experience or see things differently you will be very pleased, the world may even look different if you try just a little today. This will be especially true if you push yourself a bit to see or experience something you have resisted in the past.

The Sun in Leo sesquiquadrates retrograde Neptune in Pisces. When the planet of mysticism and dreams clashes with our ego and conscious self it creates tension between OUR reality and delusions. Try not to avoid reality today, finding a happy medium between your spirit and ego is the key for today! It’s a day for working on your creativity, dreams and spiritual; practice, however don’t get to hard on yourself or caught up in the fine details try to honor your flaws and best qualities.

Happy Monday!

There is Work to be Done! 24/07/2018.

Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

Venus in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces.

The Moon enters Capricorn.

The emotional environment is calm and uneventful for most of Tuesday with the Moon  in Sagittarius for most of the morning. We do get a reality check when the Moon enters Capricorn later today. Responsibilities and work commits become clearer today as you get back into routine and structure. Capricorn is all hard work in order to develop integrity and mastery in all parts of your life. Use this energy to get those important tasks done, to get your head in order and make a plan! No more getting lost or caught up in Sagittarius whimsy, adventurous and escapism ways.

Venus in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces. This will cause some tension as the both planets energy are at an opposition with each other. Tension when it comes to romantic matters and our deepest wants and needs or lack of are exacerbated today, some will be in denial looking at love or current relationships through rose-coloured glasses. Don’t jump to any conclusions or make any decisions as it is unlikely that you have all the information necessary to do so. Venus and Neptune normally can be lovely for creativity, romance, compassion and self-less service. but at an opposition with each other concerns in our relationships and finances will be playing on our mind. The key for today is to find balance, compassion and understanding whilst using your discernment and being honest.

 

Have a great day!

The Crescent Moon in Libra.

Wednesday, July 18, 2018.

The Crescent Moon in Libra.

Today offers a day with very little planetary activity as the Moon gently flows through charming, pleasant Libra. One thing to remember about Libra is that it is ruled by Venus and being an Air sign it is fundamentally an intellectual charming sign that focuses on relationships, beauty and harmony. As the Moon rules our emotions and Libra rules our heart today is a great day to engage with others! Get out and be social, catch up with friends. It’s a wonderful time to turn your mind to matters of the heart or romance. This energy is also great for those who want to work on your business partnerships too as  cooperation, diplomacy,  fair-minded and compromise are the name of the game today!

 

Happy Hump Day!

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer 201/8.

Thursday, July 12, 2018:

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer forms an opposition to both the Sun and Moon to Pluto in Capricorn.

Today we have a partial solar eclipse at 20’41 Cancer.  This eclipse is the first in the Cancer/Capricorn polarity series! What is activated or brought to Light for you right now can give you insight into the next 19 months. The effects of the Eclipse can last up to six months. The energy being brought forth will be one of family, home life and career and work life, most importantly finding a healthy balance between them both. Look in your chart to see if either of the signs are present, it will give you a clue on what to work and focus your New Moon intentions on!

So not only do we have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer, we have the Sun opposing Pluto and then the New Moon opposing Pluto.This opposition happens once a year. Therefore it is important for us to understand that we may not be to familiar with this combination of energies. To add into the mix, all these energies we will experience will be intensified by the New Moon solar eclipse! This opposition of power will creating a potent clash between our conscious self and  the Lord of transformation. When Pluto is in play its very important that we remember its energy is one of healing, rebirth and transformation. Can you think back and review whats been happening over the past 6 months? Whats been building up? Any control or power dynamics have arisen? What issues or problems that need to be healed?  Whatever began for you then is now fully illuminated in all its power or darkness. Open your eyes to look deeply. This could well be a pivot point /personally or collectively.

This New Moon draw in the Cancer’s energy which is related to family, home, relationships and nurturing. Also there is huge focus on our feelings, emotions and intuition right now. As I have mentioned this eclipse opposes Pluto in Capricorn, so expect some intense and powerful light to any shadow areas concerning important relationships both personal and family.

Pay special attention to your New Moon ritual and wishes. As whatever seeds you plant for a new beginning or anything you want to manifest at this New Moon will have far more strength and magic, pushing your growth and dreams forward. Be mindful of the fact that everyone’s emotions are heightened. Pay special attention to your New Moon ritual as whatever seed you plant for a new beginning at this New Moon will have far more strength pushing your growth forward.

Traditionally a New Moon is about making new intentions, new beginnings, planting seeds that you inspire to grow. This month the Moon is in its home sign of Cancer, so our New Moon manifestation bucket list should focus on matters that Cancer rules over such as safety, intuition, emotions, food,  family, domestic domains, and a focus on what our basic foundations are set upon, to focus on what we call “Home”. This eclipse is going to strengthen and magnify your new beginnings especially if your focus regarding all of these matters.

Another focus of Cancer is our sense of belonging and security, it’s about where we feel ” At Home” our weakness, vulnerability, our strengths. Cancer’s energy is about finding our ability to move forward and shake off past hurts especially in romance department or relationships with our parents. It’s about forgiving our self and others. This a time to recognize and appreciate the importance of our family or whom we call family, this includes your friends, animals and people who make you feel welcome and safe! If any relationship needs healing or forgiveness use this months New Moon intentions and wishes to build up, heal or strengthen your relationships and most importantly to work on your own relationship with yourself.

This New Moon learn to feed your soul or work on home improvements. Cancer loves food so what better time to enroll yourself and take a cooking class, have ” you” time, take a bath  and honor your innermost feelings. Re-decorate your home or work place and if your domestic home life needs a tweak this is the time to work on it.

 

Happy New Moon manifestation guys!
