Gaining Momentum 11/08/2017!

Friday, August 11th, 2017.

The Moon enters Aires.

Retrograde Uranus in Aries semisquares retrograde Neptune in Pisces.

In the every early hours of this morning, the Moon entered head strong, energetic Aries. When the Moon is in this first sign of the zodiac we gain courage, we become head strong ready to charge at any challenge. Today is a great day for physical activity if you have been particularly lethargic this week get outside and move and  Enjoy the abundance of this Fire sign.

However, please keep an eye on the possible tendency to take an irrational and very impulsive action, especially if you really have not thought things out properly. Aries is impulsive so don’t start anything you cannot finish up over the next few days, especially with Mercury stationing retrograde tomorrow!

 

Retrograde Uranus in Aries semi squares retrograde Neptune in Pisces. Uranus and Neptune form their first semi-square in a set that spans until May 1, 2019. This may bring some tension between the planet of illusion and mysticism and the planet of revolutionary and the rebel of the sky! It is a great aspect to wake up our consciousness, insights, spiritual awareness and intuition.This will be a time when we can feel particularly inspired, creative, and enriched although we may feel restless if our dreams are no longer fulfilling us. Try and stay grounded and connect to reality is key to make the most of this aspect.

Dreamy and in Love! 09/08/2017.

Wednesday, August 9, 2017.

The Moon is in Pisces.

The Moon opposes Mercury in Virgo.

Mercury in Virgo trines Venus in Cancer.

The Moon continues on her journey through mystical, Pisces.When the Moon is in this sign its much more emotional, loving, spiritual and caring. Today, do allow yourself to float unburdened and take some time and listen to your intuition and allow space for dreamy sensitivity.

The Pisces Moon opposes Mercury in Virgo. Mercury governs the way we think, and communicate and in Virgo it takes charge and is a machine. It takes in all information, it gathers it and makes sense of it. Its rational, looking at information for what it is.

Mercury trines Venus in Cancer, Venus is all about love and beauty and in cancer she is very nurturing emotional . This however can cause a problem for Mercury in Virgo. The Pisces Moon and Venus in Cancer means today our feelings will beat logic so watch out for that. Logic and reasoning will step aside for love and passion, be careful as the urge of sudden emotions and impulses can override your sensibility, so think before you stand under your partners window holding a boom box and declaring your love.

Happy Wednesday!

La Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius 2017

 

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius!

On the 8th August we see a partial luna eclipse. Luna and solar eclipse are potent as their effects can last up to 6 months. The last one we experienced was in February of this year. Now this month we have two lots of eclipse here in August. How exciting!

 

A little background on eclipses. lunar eclipses are massive full Moons. As the Earth moves and rotates it comes between the Sun and the Moon, thus resulting in blocking the Sun’s light and a shadow being cast on the Moon. This shadow of an eclipse is not total, it is partial, so it  is not fully dark. So we will only see a small portion of the moon go dark.

Full Moons are known too brings things to crisis point or a climax. With the shadow of the earth sweeping across part of this Full Moon, it can symbolize the unconscious part of our self. lunar eclipses are great for bringing to Light the hidden shadow areas of our self and our life that are not being looked at ( much to people’s dismay). What has been surfacing within you of late? have you been grumpy, snappy or moody? maybe its your soul trying to tell you something, sit in silence and listen!

Something to remember, Eclipses are not by their own nature good or bad. If you cringe at the thought of Full Moons and Eclipse bringing things to light, or things we tend to push down deep inside, maybe its time to stop twisting fate and accept what needs to be changed. Yes, they can sweep in stir things up but they also move things forward in your life! Eclipse’s can be dramatic and can be both exhilarating and scary.

It’s important to think about the signs involved too and what they represent. As we have the Sun in playful Leo and the Moon in humanity Aquarius. This Leo/Aquarius Axis like with all oppositions, gives us an opportunity, you can either focus on what divides or work together to create unity out of polarity.

The Sun is shining Leo energy down onto the Moon in Aquarius. The Sun in Leo is energised, fun, loving. It’s really fiery and playful, and now the Moon is picking up on this energy. However Aquarius is a sign that loves being of service, its humanitarian its intellect, it’s using the other side of your brain and thinking outside the box. Its forward and very future orientated.

So now this Moon will shower us here on earth with this Aquarian energy. We will feel that we need to help others, be of service, doing positive things for people. A window will be opening up and we get a chance to really help someone out, to really help others that are suffering.

Aquarius rules the realm of the collective rather than the individual (Like Leo). This eclipse will help expand your energy and think about what’s good for everyone,
So some of you may experience issues or awkwardness around fitting in or not during this eclipse. Questions can come up at this time like where do I belong? Who do i feel comfortable to team up with? However the uncertainty of fear of comparing yourself and over thinking if other people don’t get who you are, and what you are trying to achieve.

The Sun shines bright when it is in Leo, It illuminates and beams down on you like you are center stage.The Sun finds it hard to shine in Aquarius because it has to share the limelight. Leo energy is creative, energetic, passionate! This aspect of the eclipse is about finding and revealing your identity, unearthing your unique skills and talents, helping you shed old fears and encourages you to discover what makes you ‘you’.

Yes we will be showered with humanitarian energy, and creative loving Leo energy along with having an opportunity to help others and guess what this is an eclipse the effects of this will last 6 months so thank you God and the Universe for giving the world a chance to look out for others. To help others heal, we will take more care of each other, it will come naturally and without trying or forcing. How refreshing is this change!

So this Lunar Eclipse the question is, are you ready to shine bright, ready to use your positive qualities to help others, share your natural talents with the world, and make a difference?

 Have you tried a Full Moon Ritual  Full Moon Ritual

Happy Full Moon Day

Power struggles, as Jupiter Squares Pluto. 04/08/2017

Friday, August 4, 2017.

The Moon is in Capricorn.

 Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon is in mature Capricorn. The Capricorn Moon does its best to keep  a level head and reasoning on the table but it will be a challenge. Do your best today to maintain some balance and maturity without letting the darker traits of Capricorn surface like pessimism and over ambitiousness. Maintain your integrity!!! Power struggles can get exacerbated right now, especially with this Jupiter/ Pluto square. Today instead, focus on standing centered in your own power and space and have others meet you half way.

Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. This is the final in a set of three squares between Jupiter and Pluto that begun in November 2016. We might throw ourselves into working on resolutions or finding harmonious  answers.

The positive aspect of this square is that it has the ability to stimulate our inner ambitions.The energy fuels us up to set our goals high,high enough that we can achieve anything. This square basically stirs up and creates friction and tension between the planet of transformation and healing, and the planet of expansion! We now see our desire to transform and evolve and realize its not that far to grasp.

However, this Jupiter-Pluto square also stimulates a part in us that may be overreaching. We may take on too many interests, activities, change and desires under this planetary influence. We can place too much pressure and importance on what we want to achieve ignoring our energy and our limits burning the candle at both ends.

The key to managing the energies is to ease up on the pressure we place on ourselves and others, and not to stir up others with our strong point of view and stand point. As we can find the urge to exaggerate our importance or power we hold, either to ourselves or others.

 

Happy Friday!

Have a good weekend.

Can you Feel The Power Surge? 26/7/17

Wednesday July 26th, 2017.

The Sun in Leo conjunts Mars in Leo.

The Moon is inVirgo.

 

With the Sun in Leo conjunting Mars in Leo, the real action builds throughout the day to its climax, as we have a lot of Leo energy floating around, a lot of fire, passion. This is the beginning of a one-year cycle of illumination of strength, self-determination, and physical energy. When the Sun is in Leo its wonderfully enthusiastic, fun-loving , joyful, playful and happy. When Mars is in Leo, he also wants to have fun and enjoys this fire energy of passion in the Air. Mars energy is about pushing through obstacle, however when in Leo can be over enthusiastic about breaking down boundaries. Mars become the ultimate male icon and over macho and masculine. This energy leads us to instinctively take action. However, Watch out for this energy when dealing with situations and problems today as being over-confident can backfire when used in the wrong context. We could also become very direct and frank, and perhaps somewhat short-tempered and impulsive.

Think of this Sun/Mars aspect as a time to plant a seed of personal strength and perseverance toward a long-held goal.

Today is a powerful day! The day begins with a razor-sharp ability to use our power in an efficient manner as the Moon in Virgo forms a beautiful trine aspect to powerful Pluto. When the Moon is in Virgo,  we’re inclined to see the finer details and flaws around us especially in our work environment. Ideally, this encourages us to solve problems or find common ground to make peace with those around us.

Later tonight that sharpness may halt as the Virgo Moon forms a challenging square to Saturn. This planet of karma and life lessons may make us  wonder if we pushed too hard for something we desired, maybe at the expense of others and also may have the tendency to make us overly critical.

Hope you have a great day.

New Moon is Leo 2017

New Moon in Leo 2017.

On Sunday morning, the New Moon occurred and entered in the sign of Leo. A New Moon is when the Moon is totally black and it is recharging itself, it pulls in energy over next few days to complete the new Moon cycle. This month New Moon will be pulling in Leo energy.  The New Moon is also a great time to set intentions, it is a time to take a step back and review what you want for the future. It’s about planting seeds on what you want to achieve over the next month. It is time to take a stock of your life and to make an action plan.

This New Moon is going to be a powerful one! It is in the sign of Leo and will be at 0 degrees. Each house in the astrology chart is made up of 30 degrees, whenever a planet is at 0, 1 or 20 degrees it signifies an expansive time when the energy is at its most powerful. The Sun and the Moon are sitting together in 0 degrees in Leo. Its pulling pure Leo energy into your chart! It is pulling in enthusiasm, confidence, its pulling in lots of physical, mental and emotional energy.  It’s really pulling in drive and desire to be seen, to be heard and to have fun. The energy is about enjoying the company of others and having a sense of humor and silliness.

The New Moon in Leo is an excellent time for formulating goals, enhancing our love life, forming hobbies and building self-esteem and healthy pride in one self. Embrace these quality’s , embody and use these qualities this month especially when formulating your intentions and your New Moon wish list.

It’s a lot of fun positive energy being pulled into the chart and the best part is you can use this energy where you like. Are you needing more energy? Or do you need more creativity in your world? Do you need a confidence boost at work or in your love life? Want the courage to climb that hill or ask for a promotion? This New Moon is wonderful and going to pull in lots of energy to our lives and to the way we feel.

With all this strong Leo energy around, you have the chance to make significant changes in your life. Changes that will benefit you well beyond this Moon cycle. Take some time and write down what needs a boost and what you want to achieve that you never thought you could achieve before. Today and over the next day or so day-dream, take yourself out for a coffee and jot down what magical changes you want for yourself and the world you. It’s time to make some plans and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from your new beginnings.

Happy New Moon!

Have a great Monday!

rds from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs.

The Moon completes its transit of Cancer at 4:35 AM EDT and enters Leo. Shortly after the Moon enters Leo, the New Moon occurs (at 5:46 AM) very early in the sign (in the first degree). This lunation is an excellent time for formulating goals regarding “all things Leo.” We might concentrate on new ways to enhance our romantic life, creative endeavors and hobbies, and relationship with children, as well as to build our self-confidence and healthy pride in ourselves. With this strong Leo energy, we have the chance to make significant changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. It’s time to make some plans and set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs. Next month, a New Moon will occur again in the sign of Leo, this time late in the sign, and will be a Solar Eclipse and particularly potent. With the New Moon occurring at the very beginning of the sign of Leo today, there is an emphasis on brand new beginnings. With the Sun and Moon applying to a conjunction to Mars, we should watch for prematurity and impulsiveness. However, it can be a courageous, proactive time. The desire to win, initiate, innovate, and take action is strong, particularly when it comes to creative and romantic matters

The Moon enters Gemini

Venus is in Gemini

Mercury in Leo trines Saturn in Sagittarius.

By the time you wake up on this morning, the Moon will no longer be in grounded and  patient Taurus, as she enters inquisitive Gemini. When the Moon is in Gemini we become more commutative and witty. We are able to articulate our feelings, perhaps, at the expense of actually feeling them

Today we see Venus and the Moon in Gemini which support one another. Communication is very open and receptive. Venus and the Moon are all about how your soul feels, what you love and how you go about getting it. This energy is all about exploring, you may want to experience things you never wanted to try before. However it would be wise or have cautious to using this energy especially if you are walking into situations or something new with a blind eye. So best not to sign anything long-term or sign your life away if you don’t really know what the facts are.

Today there may be some confusion,  the Moon moving into Gemini interacts with Mercury in Leo and trines Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn is responsible for a lot of this fuzziness you feel today. When Mercury is in Leo we are loud, proud and flamboyant but this explosive energy makes us feel stuck, as the path ahead is not yet clear or is difficult to decide on, which in turn is bringing about this confusion. You feel upbeat confident about the future your communication is open and loud but everything seems fuzzy and the content and reason you are proud is not so clear. Today is NOT a good day for long-term decisions, it’s a better day spent communicating and exchange ideas, words and plans.

Have a great day!

18/07/2017 Daily Grind.

 

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017.

The Moon is in Taurus.

Venus in Gemini trines Jupiter in Libra.

Venus in Gemini trines Jupiter in Libra.

When the Moon enters Taurus the energy just works well. Together these two have a passion for comfort such as food and over indulging on the naughty things in life. However do watch out for the urge to over eat especially if you’re watching your weight, and look out for over indulge the senses. As much as the Moon loves relaxing and being sensual in Taurus getting to lazy could be high on your list. Do treat yourself to a massage if you can.

Today the Moon forms a few challenging connections with most of the planets and is under a lot of pressure. Taurus is much about being grounded, it’s not favorable of change and the fact the Taurus Moon is connecting with everything else will make you feel like you are at the center of everything and it gives you an advantage and a feeling that you get a good centered overview of whats going on around you.

The most significant connections the Moon makes today is with Mercury in Leo and Jupiter in Libra. These two connections are the most important as Mercury is the communication planet and in Leo its very much more expressive in how it think, perceives and communicates. It’s confident and loves to be out in public.

Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion and in Libra its focus is on relationship with others. So here today is a great time to get public. If you need to make an announcement, do public speaking or group work and activities Jupiter will ensure you that it will work out very well for you and go in your favor. You will be articulate, smooth, flowing  and you present yourself very well and people will be interested in what you have to say and be interest in what you have to offer.

Venus, the planet that represents love and beauty, will form a flowing trine aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck. Venus in Gemini is chatty, light and fun and when it aligns with Jupiter in Libra who loves being social and finding harmonious relationships, they seem to benefit each other in a beautiful way. We can find that we open up, search for love and light and positivity, we have a renewed sense of gratitude and we appreciate the small things in life.

Have a beautiful day!

Wednesday July 12th, 2017.

The Full Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

The Moon sextiles Uranus.

When we wake up today the Moon will be in Aquarius but not for long as it enters Pisces mid morning. We are in the last day of the Full Moon period so the energy is shifting as we move closer to the New Moon.

The Moon in Aquarius forms a harmonizing aspect with Uranus. The inventive energy from the Moon in Aquarius is heightened as we become  enthusiastic and hopeful, as we are playing with exciting ideas and making plans. Don’t expect this sharp, unconventional view to last as the Moon enters Pisces at lunch time today.

When the Full Moon is in Pisces sensitivity returns with a depth that may even surprise you. As the Moon moves through Pisces we find our self becoming more sensitive, vulnerable and elusive.  Today you experience a shift as your sense of vulnerability and your boundaries dissolve between yourself and others. Some can anticipate feeling deeply which can lead to tendencies toward becoming susceptible.

Today watch out for old addictions or bad habits surfacing along with self-pity, a sense of being lost, as it  happens more readily on a Pisces Moon Day. Don’t allow alcohol, food,  drugs, or other unhealthy vices and behaviors to carry you away. Take time for meditation or allow yourself to indulge in whimsical imagination such as getting lost in a book, movie or automatic writing if you are having a difficult time keeping your feet on the ground.

Have a great day!

Full Moon in Capricorn 2017.

 

The Full Moon happens in the sign of Capricorn this month. This months Full Moon is going to be a very beautiful, positive transformative Full Moon. This Moon has Pluto sitting right next to it and it has the potential to be life changing.

A Full Moon is when the Sun is exact opposite the Moon at 180 degrees. A Full Moon astrology speaking highlights opposing forces or polarities in our life. Areas can include our home life, work life, our needs, wants and especially our emotional needs verses what our egos want. As the lunar cycle reaches its fullest on the 09/07/2017 our emotions and insists reach their peak, ever felt a tad loony oar emotional responsive around a Full Moon? Full Moons are known to heighten sensitivity that can lead and create inner tension and external pressure that result in a crisis and can drain your energy or heighten it. However with all this new found emotional power and strength, the key is to use it, along with your intuition and the energy and traits of the Moons position in a certain star sign to overcome any challenges. Subconscious awareness during this period allows for an objective and balanced look at your life and your personal relationships.

This July 9th full moon at 17°09′ Capricorn is only one degree away from Pluto. This trasnformative, healing planet of power and intensity transmutes healing and lessons through the process of  destruction and renewal. As emotions are already high during a full Moon they are about to even more all powerful and somewhat all consuming this week. Can you feel the energy building already? As far as Full Moons go this one will be as powerful as they can get.

Moon conjunct Pluto brings such deep and intense feelings to the surface that they can overwhelm you. You may become obsessed about your feelings and have trouble focusing on anything else. Dreams, visions, psychic impressions or intuitive insights may have a profound influence on your mood.

Sun in Cancer opposing the Moon in Capricorn makes the Moon/ Pluto alignment more challenging.

because of the relationship tension it creates. The battles you have with other people can mirror your own inner conflict as you try to reconcile differences between what you want versus what you need.
Sun opposite Pluto brings a crisis either with self-esteem, a relationships or an event. This may be due to a self-destructive character trait such as addiction, spying or stubbornness. In relationships, you may be the subject of, or the perpetrator of, manipulation, jealousy, domination or spying. Events may include the breakdown of an appliance or car, theft, violence, or the destruction of possessions by people or natural disaster.

Full Moon occurs with the Cancer Sun in opposition to the Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time—a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Cancer-Capricorn polarity concerns the balance between the private life, domesticity, the need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by Cancer) versus the public life, career, reputation, and accountability (represented by Capricorn). Attachments and love are ruled by Cancer, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by Capricorn. In some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. While Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible. Cancer represents the origin, and Capricorn represents the goal. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do. This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.
The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between roots and direction. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is fresh, unrefined, and not particularly rational as yet.
