Full Moon in Gemini and Mercury Turns Retrograde on 03/12/2017!

Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde December, 2017.

This is the Christmas full Moon and it happens at 11 degrees in Gemini. The Full Moon has building up all month and now its reaches its fullest. It is fully illuminated by the Sun in Sagittarius and  is ready to shine down and share with us all this Gemini/Sadge  energy. Full Moons give us more energy, we get supercharged and we feel there is more going on behind the scenes. Being everything is at 11 degrees ie the Sun/ Moon which interesting, as the Moon is sitting at 11 degrees Gemini and if you look at Gemini its symbol is represented by 11. The number 11 is all about new doors opening, a new chapter, a new beginnings and opportunities, it’s about life changing decisions, marriages, partnership, new doors opening and new jobs.

This Full Moon has some significant energy presented to us this month. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, our thought process, travel and insight. This Full Moon has a great potential for us to make change in our life and to transform it. If you can picture this Full Moon as a magical door way (like Narnia) Opening us up to a magical new life of manifestations, new beginnings and abundance. Its going to be very impressive, and don’t be surprised by this all as 11:11 brings in the help of our guides, god, the universe, angels, ancestors and guardian angels to help you along the way to get you to the moment of awakening and insight.

The Gemini Full Moon brings full illumination to what occurred at the Scorpio New Moon last month on November 18th, 2017. Take out your New Moon wish book, because whatever your focus was on or whatever you began at the New Moon will now show its results, unless the universe has better plans for you!

Traditionally a Full Moon is a time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Release what no longer serves us or holds us back. Out with the old physical, emotional, spiritual and mental baggage to make room for bigger better things. Of course, however we might want to exercise some care and caution while doing so especially in the way we talk, communicate and process our thoughts. As Mercury did station retrograde on the same day. Which means communications, our thinking and taking in information has the potential to be scrambled or misinterpreted and what is coming out of us may not particularly rational, our dialogue can be misread and the way we communicate could be one-sided or misinterpreted.

The Sun is at 11 degrees in Sagittarius and is 180 degrees away from the Moon illuminating it. The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity axis is some what divergent as Gemini represents our “lower mind” and Sagittarius represents our “higher mind” The Sun in Sagittarius itself is all about a higher learning and understanding. Sagittarius persuades us to think in a far broader manner,we seek mystical knowledge, expand our learning in unconventional ways. We want to connect to the divine and embark on care free adventures. Where as a Gemini encourages us to think logically, practically and factual.

Those of us who are abstract thinkers, this Full Moon is really going life the veil and help up reach that higher self and learning, meditating will be great to connect with these other realms and absorbs new information

The Full Moon is almost exact square to Neptune in Pisces at 11 degrees. Neptune in Pisces is happy, it’s a water sign of dreaming illusion, INTUITION, fantasy, denial and escapism. This can points to confusion, as the Gemini Full Moon wants to be clear, logical with clarity,but when this planet ( Neptune) is involved, it may make things foggy and unclear.

Traditionally Full Moons are about clearing out the clutter, releasing what no longer serves us, gaining clarity and recognition, and Gemini energy especially demands we see reality and logic. Of course with this Neptune’s square to the Moon reality may be hard to see unfortunately. Be smart and grab what information is given to you. If you are in denial and outright avoiding reality or are unsure with what information or situations you are given, retreat, go home snuggle in your safe place and sift through the information that is given. Your guts or “intuition” will let you know whats right for you.

The ruler of this Gemini Moon is Mercury, who may I add just stationed retrograde late last night. Mercury has turned retrograde at 29° Sagittarius. Mercury has a wonderful way to make us return to a past problem or discussion and revise and review, but on a positive note with a critical eye. Communication within yourself and others can be misunderstood and miscommunication, it’s important to keep in mind we are in Mercury Retrograde and that we don’t have the full story and information the same as others are being affected just like us. There are easy ways to survive Mercury Retrograde over the next 3 weeks. Get a notebook and a pen out. Make a list of everything that you have begun but haven’t completed in the past few months, house jobs, issues that have been bugging you, that certain talk with someone you have been avoiding, organisation of your car, work and home, that art piece, your tax, assignments etc.. During the Retrograde, focus on yourself and get to work on accomplish what is on that list! If your mind wonders like me, make sure you accomplish only what is on this list maybe have a reward system in place for when you are done, and hay there is no better feeling than ticking boxes off a to do list.

Remember don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned! Mercury retrograde brings us a great gift, the perfect opportunity to wrap up loose ends and cut cords! The shadow side of Mercury retrograde is that yes travel plans can have hiccups, communication between others can get misinterpreted and lead to problems, appointments booked by yourself, but you turn up and it was never booked in at all, computers and technology can crash,emails and memos can get lost. Anything that Mercury rules over can or may go wrong! Most important don’t be tempted to start new projects, start a new jobs, sign documents (Unless necessary) take on new commitments or commit to new relationships.

 

Happy Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde.

Temper Temper! 30/11/2017.

 

Thursday, November 30, 2017.

 The Moon is  in Aries before it transit Taurus.

Mars opposes Uranus.

With the Moon still  in Aries this morning, you may find yourself energetic and quick to act with courage or force. You may notice a desire to take risks, or a feeling of being more egotistical that normally would not appeal to you. Later this afternoon the Moon enters grounded Taurus. Bringing a steadfast calm and grounded energy to our personal and emotional environment. The Moon feels at home in Taurus and so will we, getting all cosy with the added bonus of indulging in the finer things in life sch as comfort food, wine and cheese and relaxing. However, we can have the tendencies to over indulge so if your watching your weight for Christmas and New Years don’t give too much into temptation today!

Early this morning, the Moon makes aspects to both dynamic Mars and eccentric unexpected Uranus. You tend to be focused on yourself and may be impatient with others and easily angered. We also may find our selves getting easily agitated and quite tense. Tempers could flare up today and we can act very impulsive and reckless. It’s a great day to take care with your actions and words. Even if you feel restricted or get confronted by others and their words today, center yourself and find balance there is not point throwing oil onto a fire. On a more positive note. this can be a time of more courage to free ourselves from certain restrictive situations we have been struggling with and to help us to push ourselves to break out of the routine and try new things.

 

Happy Thursday!

at 12:26am mars in libra quincunxes retrograde chiron in pisces- creating tension and friction between the will, warrior and drive and the Wounded Healer planetoid. mars/chiron brings up deep old wounds and pain around our masculine sides or around men in our lives. any issues around anger, aggression, taking action, taking a stand, saying no or setting boundaries can arise for us to face today. both libra and pisces are signs that tend to over focus on others at the expense of the self. not losing the self in others and being able to set and maintain boundaries is key for personal health as well as the health of any relationships we may be in. it’s a great day to be in therapy or getting body work. any healing modalities utilized today can assist you in getting into your core wound- not so you can stay stuck there but so that you can truly feel ALL if it and release the Unconscious hold it has on you.

Early today, it can be difficult to assert ourselves effectively without provoking, annoying, or concerning others. The trick is to combine both sensitivity and directness instead of going for either/or. The Moon continues its transit of independent, competitive Aries until 3:39 PM EST, after which its transit of Taurus may help settle us down. However, we’re building to a Mars-Uranus opposition, exact tomorrow morning, that’s potentially quite tense and can stimulate impatience. Tempers can flare and a tendency to take careless risks or jump into premature action is possible. We tend to challenge situations that make us feel restricted or people if they seem to be trying to hold us back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Positively, this can be a time of more courage to free ourselves from restrictive circumstances or to push ourselves to break out of the routine and try new things. Confrontations may help clear the air.

Dream Big! 22/11/17.

Wednesday November 22nd. 

 Neptune stations direct at 11’27 Pisces. 

The Moon is in Capricorn.

When you wake up today you may notice that you had some imaginative and vivid dreams. As Neptune is making a significant appearance today, and that makes this planet of mysticism, dreaming and illusion the most powerful planet in the sky.

Neptune stations  direct at 11° Pisces. Neptune is the water planet that represents our dreams, intuition, creativity, spirituality, unconditional love and mysticism and with it turning direct (as Neptune has been moving retrograde since mid-June) it’s like we are back to business. We regain a sense of hope for our dreams and our future. We get that sense back that we can make things happen for our self once again. Since Neptune turned retrograde back in June, it has really pushed us to ask our self as well as reevaluate an important dream that we have had, or an artistic venture, or our spiritual path. What big dream have you been holding onto since then? If you don’t know, allow your intuition to guide you. For a big clue to what area of your life is being activated in this way, consider where Pisces falls in your chart? For me it’s in my 6th house! The veil between the worlds is thin when Neptune stations and the key to using this energy is in meditation, journaling, reflection and introspection. 

However, now that Neptune station today, the shadow side is that some may have a hard time focusing, as we can get lost in day dreaming and find it difficult to focus long enough really tackle a task. Neptune energy also reflects and can presented in the form of delusion, denial, avoidance of reality, playing the victim and refusing to see the other side of the story.

It is a time to confront any emotions, addictions, repetitive patterns that don’t serve a purpose to your higher self and its especially not a great time to make definitive decisions as it’s not quite clear which way is up and which way is down with all this dreamy water energy floating around.  

This is now a time to illuminate your dreams, seek inspiration from the world around you to get creative. You will have the motivation to work towards a better future, one where you see yourself happy. Yay!

The Moon is still in grounded Capricorn. We will want to keep our expectations realistic under the influence and although sometimes pessimistic. The Capricorn Moon will form a challenging aspect to transformative and also, destructive Pluto. This means today especially when interacting with others watch out for power struggles as we may have tendencies to engage in coercive power dynamics with others. Stop, count to three in your head and speak from a place of integrity and responsibility for our own words and actions.  

I over head this “saying” or “prayer” toady and thought it quite fitting…

Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.  

Today is about the things you accept and the things you can and cannot change!Tap into Neptune’s energy and find the wisdom.

Happy Hump Day!

We Seek a Higher Knowing! 21/11/2017.

 

Tuesday, November 21, 2017.

The Sun enters Sagittarius.

The Moon enters Capricorn.

Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.

The big news today comes when the Sun, following her haul through the deep, mysterious and passionate waters of Scorpio, now enters fun-loving, adventurous  Sagittarius! Shifting the conscious self and our ego from water to fire, introspection to outer focus, from emotional to explorative. Over the coming month, we have an inner calling to be spontaneous, to reach out to understand and see the bigger picture, we want to explore and to see the perspective of others.

The emotional environment of today day turns a little more serious as the Moon enters hard-working and realistic Capricorn. When the Moon is in Capricorn we shift to more of a grounded practical energy. Hard work and facts become a priority today no time for funny business!!

Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. This cycle which begun back in November 2016, think back to this time? What profoundly transforming shifts in regards to love relationships, personal values, deeper levels of intimacy and truth have been realized and explored? When the planet of beauty and love aligns and joins forces with the planet of transformation, their energies are exacerbated, this energy equals passion, intensity, depth and abundance! Since November 2016,  the cycle between Venus and Pluto has proceeded forward as the energy between these two grew, it came to full fruition in August of this year and now we come to a closing sextile aspect between them.

A new cycle between these powerful forces will be activated in early January of 2018, offering us an opportunity to activity plan for the new cycle! What new level of love relationships do you want to reach? Where do you plan to create more beauty and love in your life? What values or morals do you want to strengthen what do you want to ultimately transform your future? Begin now to plan for the future you dream of. This sextile also empowers and extends the cycle between Jupiter and Venus that began last week.

However it is important to remember that not only does Venus/Pluto astrologicaly speaking, is great  for deepening into intimacy with your self and others, it can also have a darker side… so please be mindful and watch out for jealously,  possessiveness,  and the desire to be in control or ultimately give away your power in Love and money situations.

 We are still in the Scorpio New Moon phase!! There is still time to make your manifestation wish list if you haven’t already done so.

Happy Tuesday!

Wednesday 15th November, 2017.

The Moon is in Libra.

The Moon in Libra opposes Uranus in Aires.

Uranus in Aires squares Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon is in peaceful Libra.Libra encouraging us to find ways to be peaceful, co-operative and harmonize well with others as well as yourself. Keep in mind that self-care must be your top priority.

The Moon in Libra opposes Uranus in Aires. Uranus is the planet that represents rebellion as well as doing and seeing things in an unconventional ways. Uranus sitting  in the male archetype sign of Aires, its energy is very strong, it’s very ” Me Me Me’ and im going to do something amazing, a powerhouse to move obstacles. So whats holding you back from manifesting your dreams? What drive is lacking to achieve what you want?

Uranus in Aires squares Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto represents change, transformation and when it’s in this earth sign of Capricorn this change is about practicality and work.Today these energies will help us to get insights or ideas as to transform our life in regards to becoming more practical, bringing about practicality in our daily life and especially in regards to our work life! Today the types of question you may have for energies like this is.. How do I move houses? How do I work on getting my dream job? How can get more organised at work so I have more time for fun? How can I achieve my goals?

However, it’s also important to remember these energies can also make us feel like we are on the defense, challenged by power dynamics, uncomfortable in decision-making, to hot-headed to see the reality of situations that are unfolding in front of us. Uranus is great at unpredictable and unexpected events occurring! GO with the flow of the Libra Moon energy, find harmony and balance in your day and try to see the beauty all around you!

Happy Hump Day!

Venus forms a sextile between Saturn.

The Sun Scorpio forms a trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces

The Moon is in Taurus.

In the early morning hours this morning , lovely Venus forms a sextile aspect to mature Saturn. This harmonious aspect will help those in relationships to get real, to get deep and stabilize what you have! This time is great for understanding what your needs are, your values, loyalties and those needs of your partner. It is truly wonderful for really tuning into each other. We do have a Full Moon tomorrow which just adds to you and your partner releasing something that no longer working for you both, lack of time together, passive communication, and helping you understanding each other on the same level.This releasing can be really simple, and really doesn’t need to be hard! Listen to the messages and feelings you are getting, and hay what could be better than a nudge from the Universe to make things better between each other along with strengthening your self-love!

The Moon has entered Taurus this morning, eek so close to being at its fullest! Have you had a stressful week? All this Chiron energy, intense Scorpio energy, healing energy and Saturn energy can be a little harsh on us, so this Full Moon in Taurus will help take some of the edge off  some of the possible feelings of being weighed down, anger and frustration from the last few days. When the Moon is in Taurus we can not help but connect to nature, to yummy food and all things beautiful, it’s also encourages you to connect with your sensual physical body.

The Sun Scorpio forms a trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces. This supportive aspect with the planet of our dreams helps align our egos with our spirituality, mysticism and compassion. Be of service today, help a stranger, get creative and smile at everyone you meet today. For all the creative peeps out there get day dreaming and get lost in your new project. Get that guitar out, grab that sketch book sit in nature and get inspired.

Pay Attention! 02/11/2017

Thursday, November 2, 2017.

Mercury in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces.

Saturn forms a challenging square to Chiron.

Saturn is in the midst of triggering a Uranus and Chiron semisextile.

Mercury in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces. This aspect will give us the ability to  strengthen our communication skills. When Mercury is in Scorpio it can get overwhelmed, our thinking and communication is highly emotional, and we can act out on strong emotions and thoughts, especially when you are communicating with others. Scorpio loves to speak the truth and well sometimes it can come across harsh, cruel and abrasive, just be cautious on how truthful you are to people today.

When Mercury trines Chiron, just remember that Mercury is the communication planet and it is getting around with the wounded healer Chiron. This can be a wonderful thing, a wound is only a wound until it is brought up, addressed and talked over. Mercury’s energy will help us bring these deep emotional wounds up. Today, listen to yourself, a message may come through emotional realizations and you may have the remedy for healing.

Saturn is still forming a challenging square to Chiron. I spoke about this yesterday. Chiron is the wounded healer and Saturn the master planet of lessons, is giving us the tools to reach an outcome and learn the lesson needed to move on, to grow and work on your own healing . Ask yourself today, where do feel restricted or held back. What has been bugging you lately? Your job? A relationships? Home situation? Your health?. Where do you feel broken or stuck? Chiron has the ability to heal that wound! So pay attention to what is coming your way!

Saturn is also in the midst of triggering a Uranus and Chiron semisextile. Ouch this could mean for some that some big time lessons are about to surface. Lessons in regards to what needs healing, what needs to be acknowledged and any needs or issues that require evolution or transmutation. This all will happen, either on a personal level and/or our collective lives. With all of these aspects in play today, consider your integrity, your values and your temperament. Pay attention, as Chiron loves to bring to focus our biggest, deepest wounds and pain! Focus your attention on your emotional health, if you can uplift yourself and work on this you can be of service for those around you. luckily for us  Uranus is also about liberation and release, this aspect can be great for revelations, sudden insights, and aha moments!

The Moon spends the day in Aries.The Aires Moon will provide powerful energy so embrace this to take action and move forward. Bust down your obstacles, however look out for your temper if things don’t go the way you want it! Watch for any frustration with others! This only ends up with you creating difficulties for yourself in your personals, profession relationships.

 

Today remember to release, and  if we choose to do the work asked of us right now we will be rewarded! If things feel intense for you it will probably work best if you can spend time on your own as you process all these energies today.

Jupiter enters Scorpio 10/10/17

Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

Jupiter enters Scorpio.

What a massive shift we experience today, as lucky Jupiter leaves harmonious Libra and enters into sassy Scorpio, where it will spend the next year expanding and enlarging the qualities of Scorpio. Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion,success and abundance! Jupiter has just spent a year in harmonious, balanced, diplomatic and relationship oriented Libra. Now, as she enters Scorpio, we will experience the qualities of Scorpio expanding over the coming year until November 2018.

Jupiter is moving from an air sign into a water sign. Air signs energy is great for communication, exchanging of ideas, networking, being very light, very superficial and social. Scorpio is a fixed water sign, as a fixed sign Scorpio is more grounded and solid, it’s about control and handling of ones feelings and emotions, its intelligent and very influential to other people as they are emotionally stable, intuitive and grounded.

Pluto is the planet that rules over mysterious Scorpio, and Pluto is about transformation, birth and death. It’s about looking at the bigger picture, healing, intuition and imagination, making deep genuine relationships and making universal connections.

Jupiter in Scorpio is also exceptional for empowering ourselves, entering into deep journeys to discover ones self.  Scorpio also rules all things taboo (or things society deems taboo) like sex, power, money, darker things in life, death and control. Jupiter in Scorpio can help our self to become empowered in these areas and face any fears we may also have in these areas. It  can also be great for deepening  intimacy and partnerships, from romantic but also business and financial.

Scorpio is a great sign to teaches us to go deep within. Scorpio has the gift to look into the eye of darkness, it has the ability to uncover hidden truths, uncover secrets and to destroy what is not working in order for full transformation to occur. When Jupiter is in Scorpio its expanding this energy, its magnifying our ability to go deep within, focus on your self and the emotional side of life. We can learn so much about our self in Scorpio. It would be very handy to look at your chart, Consider what house holds Scorpio, to understand where expansion and transformation will be building in your life during this time.

However, Scorpio can be very intense, and form very intense relationships. Jealously can arise as well as distrust, anger, power control and power plays in relationships. Be aware that over the coming year you will feel things more deeply, you may act out on an emotional impulse. If you are one who is more sensitive to emotions, anxiety or prone to arguments, anger, and love deep take care of yourself and be aware we are entering into an emotional time.

 This coming year can be an amazing one for growth and evolution!

Have a great day!
