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!

Scorpio Moon forms a challenging square aspect to retrograde Mars

The Scorpio Moon forming a sextile to Venus and then forming a conjunction to  Jupiter.

This morning may start out a bit rough for some as the Scorpio Moon forms a challenging square aspect to retrograde Mars. This can cause some tension and friction between you and anyone on your path! Try to avoid arguments or blowing your fuse this morning as it will be very easy to lose your cool and frustrations can go from 0 to 100 in a split second.Keep in mind that retrograde Mars’ provides us with an opportunity to explore, dissolve, and eliminate toxic anger.

Good news is that the day smooths out and exciting for enough for us,offers us an evening that is made for love, romance and an opportunity to form close and deep connections with close friends and lovers. This is all thanks to Moon forming a sextile to Venus and then forming a conjunction to expansive and lucky Jupiter. Jupiter will expand your emotions and feelings and Venus’s energy means that the bond with others is one of deep love and connection. A love that expands and fills your heart on a deeply profound soul growth level. Don’t settle for light social fling tonight. Connect with others on a powerful deep level for maximum satisfaction.

 

Happy Friday!

Its a time of expansion and abundance. 10/07/2018.

 

Tuesday, July 10, 2018:

 Jupiter stations direct at 13’20 Scorpio.

Since March 9th of this  Jupiter, the planet that represents abundance, luck, expansion and higher understanding and growth has been retrograde. During the time of Jupiter’s retrograde, we have been internally reviewing and revising our beliefs and understanding of our personal path and our growth. Today as Jupiter stations direct at 13’20 Scorpio now it is a time to trust in your revision and hope it has done its work. Be ready to move in this new direction on your path . You are ready to move forward with a new enlightened outlook.

Jupiter being the most powerful planet in the sky stationing direct means that the energy of luck, confidence, along with our willingness to succeed and take risk is high today! Use this new-found confidence to move forward on your new journey, whilst remembering your new lessons and guidance.

 

Have a great day.

Monday, July 9th, 2018.

The Moon enters Gemini.

Venus enters Virgo.

Don’t be surprised if you wake up this morning with an overriding desire to procrastinate, this is due to the Moon still being in Taurus this morning. When the Moon is in Taurus we seek creature comforts, overindulging in foods and well.. we love to be lazy and lounge around.

This laid back attitude procrastination  in part is also to do with Mercury forming a square aspect to Jupiter that happens in the early hours of the day. You may feel strongly resistant to others direction and advise.We also search for meaning to our life and our place in life. This is a day you don’t want a boss or an authority figure at work. Oftentimes this energy leads to exaggeration or misjudgment so be careful in the way you speak to or with others. The procrastination will fall away by lunch time as the Moon enters Gemini. The mood lightens up and conversation became more interesting, intelligent and witty.  You can re-engage with whatever needs to be done with less internal protest.

Venus leaves playful Leo behind to enter humble Virgo until August 6th.Venus has been in Leo since the June 13th, and lets say this is not a modest and humble sign.  However now it is in Virgo expect to be more discerning in your relationships as well as you develop some refinement. Your eye is on the smallest details when it comes to romance, beauty and the finer things in life. When Venus is in Virgo we expect nothing but refinement. We are focused on vanity and on pretensions to perfection. During Venus transit through Virgo the way we express love and beauty will be through earthy practical means such as gestures, mastering the fine details of your relationships and  being of service to others and devoted. This transit gives all of us the opportunity to take a step backwards and review your current relationships both personal and business. To figure out what is working in our relationships.. and what isn’t. It’s a great time to work harder on our partnerships to strengthen them for the better.

However, the shadow side of this position is being very overly critical of our partners and friends. Outlining imperfections and being too picky. Venus in Virgo makes us more reserved when it comes to matters of the heart, we can become very shy and cautious in love. Watch out for closing yourself off and making yourself as indispensable as possible in order to protect your heart and to not let people in.

 

Happy Monday!

Full Moon in Capricorn 28/06/2018.

Full Moon in Capricorn.

Thursday, June 28, 2018.

Happy Full Moon Day!The Capricorn Full Moon is at 6 degrees. 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 when the Moon recharges its batteries. We also experience a burst of strong energy as the Moon is highlight with the Suns energy and that is why people here on earth can act strange or loony during a Full Moon. The Sun is at 6 degree of Cancer, the Sun is our ego and in Cancer its your emotional and spiritual side shinning through, you are creative, artistic and nurturing in this sign. This Cancer energy that shines all its light onto the Moon which will be at 6 degrees of Capricorn. This Cancer-Capricorn polarity that we will experience this month asks us to find balance between our public and work life and our home and private life! As the Sun shines on the Moon, the Moon than receives its energy and we are left with the feeling of responsibility and duty this month. You may ask yourself  questions this Full Moon such as.. “How can I love myself more and take care of my self” as well as asking yourself how can I be of service and take care of others” or  “how i can i show my love and caring side to other people”. The Moon being in Capricorn will give us the practical, logical way to solving these questions, as well as loads of ideas on how to be more nurturing and caring for others! As Capricorn is all about strong work ethics these manifestations and ideas will be incorporated and expressed by you in your work.

Saturn, the structured, organised planet of lessons and Karma is at 5 degrees Capricorn. Saturn is the Ruling planet of Capricorn and its the planet that makes us build a solid, reliable and strong foundation for yourself to build your life on. When it’s in Capricorn it gives us a cosmic nudge in the right direction. It allows us to focus on our goals and gives us the ability to look at the end results and not so much the short-term journey. Life is serious business today, and these energies will find a way to bring your awareness to that fact. This may not a bad thing.  You have important goals to set and things to accomplish and its wise to remember that your life also has consequences.

Today is all about looking to the future and building a strong foundation or platform to work off. With Saturn and the Capricorn Moon, any ideas or goals you have will be cemented.  It’s very important to make a list or make yourself very aware of your goals, especially those goals that involve helping or caring for others. If you have always wanted a career that helps others this is the time to begin that journey, are you unemployed? Volunteer at the local community center or nursing home.

Today use this Full Moon energy to contemplate the significance of your life and make necessary adjustments to move you in the direction that you need to go.This means letting go of old emotions, people, energies, belief systems and ways of thinking. There are times in life when we should dream, a time to be silly and play and unfortunately today is not a day for fun and games! Remember, if you feel stuck or lost, one simple step can start you off on a new direction.

Mercury moves out of Cancer and into Leo. This is a big shift as our mind and intellect moves from  being sensitive to being playful, from water to fire, we see a shift from inward thinking to a more of an external focus.Our thinking is more confident and our communication is gran. We are creative in our expressions and have fun during the process of it all. When Mercury is in Leo, the energy is great for thinking creatively and even better for self-expression. We tend to be overly dramatic and we pursue the lime light and center stage! However, we can be over self-assured and we must  just watch out for coming across as narcissistic and be open to other’s perspectives.

 

Happy Full Moon day.

 

 

Understanding what makes you tick or motivates you is the name of the game! 26/06/2018.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Mars stations retrograde at 9’13  Aquarius.

Today offers us a quieter day, a day to dream of travel and spiritual awakening. The Moon is in Sagittarius most of the day following a square aspect to dreamy, mystical Neptune early this morning. Get lost in day dreaming, arts or curl up and watch a movie that ignites your imagination.Allow yourself to dream, allow yourself to imagine any and all expansive explorations that you desire. With mars turning retrograde today it is not a day to try to accomplish anything or start new projects. This is a day meant for dreamers.

The highlight of the day is when Mars turns retrograde at 9° Aquarius. Mars will remain in retrograde until August 27th, 2018.When Mars stations retrograde, it is not a time to take action or initiate new things. It is more of a time when we need to re-assess our approach to getting what we want, our current projects or hobbies and our desires and needs. This energy is one of healing and a time to deal with the past. Look to the house in your natal chart that holds Aquarius  as you consider how to use this retrograde. Some can find it  difficult to know what we want as the shift occurs, as well as how to organize  our emotions especially the hot-headed ones such as rage, anger, control and jealously. During this retrograde phase, learning to reign in your will, rage, drive, anger and aggression and work to master these characters, that is the key over the coming weeks. It is also important that you examine how you have been using anger, aggression, and drive in your life. To make amends, to re-visit and release. It is a time to learn new ways to direct these energies moving forward.

 

Have a great day!

Monday is about love, people and wonderful magic Moments! 25/06/2018.

Monday 25th June, 2018.

The Moon enters Sagittarius.

Venus in Leo square Jupiter in Scorpio.

The Sagittarius Moon forms a sextile to Mars in Aquarius than trines Chiron in Aires.

The Moon enters Sagittarius. This is an instant energy booster as you get some spring in your step ready to and ready to go and ready explore the day ahead. If you have some steam to blow off today is the day! It’s great energy to be out and about, see the magic that is all around you, to mingling and strike up new and interesting conversations. It’s also a great day to get out and explore the world around you.. This includes booking a flight or adventure for those who need a little cosmic push!

Today we see Venus in Leo square Jupiter in Scorpio. Venus in Leo leaves you feeling confident within yourself , our wants and needs for affection and attention are high. We are playful and cheeky as we seek out someone to fulfill our needs desires. Venus in Leo is all about being in the moment in love, relationships, beauty and finances! On the other hand, Jupiter the planet of good luck , abundance and good fortune and in Scorpio, we have access and are easily able to tap into our intuition for guidance and luck. Today our good luck and abundance is gained by tapping into our selves and tuning in to what we really need intuitively. If you really listen to your feelings you will get amazing results today. So today its best to listen to your inner voice and feelings and work out what are the best circumstance you would want to manifest in your life! What is the best mode of action and direction that benefits and works best for you? Today it’s about thinking and knowing you deserve the best and thinking along the lines of “how can I improve my circumstances”. If you focus inwards at this time you will get the best answer and the next directional step forward in any area of your life. However, this aspect can also leave some over doing it today. Which i don’t mind seeing its my birthday! Watch out for over indulging, over stating feelings and emotions, being overly self-assured, over spending on our affections and proclaiming some serious love.. Think shouting it from the rooftop. Be careful not to slip up and get caught up in the moment and overstate your feelings, well unless you are sure that is!

The Sagittarius Moon forms a sextile to Mars in Aquarius than trines Chiron in Aires. We see the Moon which is our emotions form relationships with the Mars, the male archetype and principle in the sign of Aquarius which is the sign of “being of service, community and outward thinking” and Chiron the wounded healer in Aires, which is all about self-healing. It’s a day for self-healing by being around others! By healing yourself and sharing your story you are able to help those around you to step up and do self-healing. You have this amazing aura and connection to those around you today. People are able to see you for your authentic self and commend you for your journey, ts ok to say you have wounds to heal and yes you can find yourself amongst the storm and chaos. It’s ok to be bruised and still be happy!!!

Have a great day!

Happy Monday!

Winter Solstice as the Sun enters Cancer. 21/06/2018.

 

Thursday, June 21, 2018.

The Sun moves out of Gemini and into Cancer.

Venus in Leo opposes Mars in Aquarius.

Welcome to Cancer season yay! The Sun enters the intuitive, domestic and nurturing sign of Cancer. Shifting us from  air to water energy. Today also marks the winter solstice. With the Sun in Cancer you will find that you are more focused on relationships and those who are the closet to you. Trust, turning inwards, home and family life will be highlighted this month.

Venus in Leo opposes Mars in Aquarius. this opposition only happens once a year. Venus and  Mars are sitting 180 degrees from each other. Venus energy is very feminine and Mars energy is very masculine, and as they oppose each other today you will feel that you may long for the either one or the others energy in your life. Whenever they aspect each other the potential for creativity, fertility and romance are high. This yin and yang energy is also great for sudden break through… especially when it comes to business and travel adventures. Launch that website, ask for a pay rise, book those tickets, make your big plans happen or just get things started at least with the Venus and Mars energy sitting so far away from each other ( As much as they are against each other today) they will eventually join up where they belong and create something new.  However this opposition will cause friction and you may find it hard to appreciate what you have especially as you keep looking over your shoulder for what you think you would prefer or always telling yourself something better will be coming along. Balance of the male and female energy is key today and appreciating the life you have!

I want to take this opportunity as a Cancer to clear up a misunderstanding I often see expressed about us Cancer’s. Everyone seems to know that Cancer is sensitive, moody, nurturing and tender. However, do not mistake our kindness for weakness or our  sensitivity at that.  Please, make no mistake, Cancer is a powerful sign in its own right! The worst thing you could ever do is take the trusting and forgiving nature of Cancer and abuse your power, we have crab claw’s for a reason and we are very in tune when we think something doesn’t sit right. Think of Cancer as the nurturing mother bear! Don’t ever mess with mamma bear Cancer especially if you assume she will not strike back!

Over the coming month it is a time to focus on home, family, emotions, inner experience and our connection to the Divine Mother.While the Sun is in Cancer, you may feel more drawn inwards, you may focus more on building deep roots and a sense of belonging. As your attention is drawn inward to your domestic life. Enjoy the more gentle, intuitive nature of this sign.

 

Have a great day!
