The Moon in Taurus.

Venus in Cancer contraparallels retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.

The last quarter Moon is in Taurus all day, but while we seek out peace and harmony and the gluttony pleasures of life and you can achieve it in some ways, but be warned these energies work well together and both have a passion for food and overindulging!As much as the Moon loves relaxing and being sensual in Taurus getting to lazy could be high on your list, but if you can Do treat yourself to a massage if you can.

Early this Morning Venus in Cancer contraparallels retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. Reverberating the energies of the goddess of love and beauty and the lord of the underworld and death and rebirth when it is exact opposition tomorrow.  This Venus/Pluto that occurs over the next 48 hours will amplify and exacerbate both energies that these planets represent. When Venus is taken to Pluto the energy can unearth negative emotions such as possessiveness jealousy and manipulation in relationships, try to avoid power/control dynamics and struggles! This opposition can also affect our financial situations as well! Don’t let money and jealously come between friends, partners and work! Look out for hidden shadow situations and hidden energies that could be running and fueling you behind the scene.

 

Happy Monday!

Good Vibes! 10/08/2017

Thursday, August 10th, 2017.

The Moon continues its transit of Pisces all day.

 Mercury in Virgo sextile Venus in Cancer.

The Sun in Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra.

Mercury in Virgo sextile Venus in Cancer. Aligning our heart and our mind in a sweet expansive way, so if you are up early you could start the day off all mushy with sweet pillow talk, tell your loved one you appreciate them and express your love. Remember Mercury is about to go retrograde (Sigh, I know). Venus and Mercury link up twice this month so pay attention to what you think, say and hear today as there can be intimations of what is to come during mercury’s retrograde journey.

The Moon continues its transit of  dreamy, intuitive Pisces all day. A void of course Moon occurs from later this afternoon with the Moon’s last aspect in Pisces before changing into Aires not to mention a square to Saturn.

There may be a bit of a glitch when the Moon squares restrictive Saturn and you must face reality and move into the workday. The key is to find balance between asserting oneself and seeking points of compromise with others.

The Sun in Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra. What a great energy to help stimulate abundance, hopefulness and positive opportunities! It’s a day to engage with others in playful ways, be generous and gaining confidence in yourself, some will also gain a stronger sense of who you are and your principles. We can grasp the “bigger picture” which expands our perspective. The Leo/Libra vibes also support you in your  growth of love within all types of partnerships. In general this is great astrology for growth, luck, confidence and optimism!

 

Happy Thursday.

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.

Mercury enters Virgo! 25/07/2017

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017.

The New Moon in Leo will enter Virgo today..

Mercury enters Virgo.

By the time you are up and are moving around today, Mercury the planet that rules our mental realm and communication, has moved from expressive Leo into efficient Virgo.Mercury is the planet rules Virgo along with Gemini FYI.

Virgo energy is very organised, industrious, practical and concerned with others. Mercury will remain in this analytical sign until he enters Libra at the end of September. When Mercury is in Virgo it is a wonderful time to get down to business. Take advantage of this time to get precise, important and efficient work done. Detail to attention, paperwork, effective communication will be a strong point with the planetary placement so don’t waste it! Mercury in Virgo is like a sponge, and with a lot of information  coming in during this period you will be soaking it ALL UP!

Expose yourself all the information that presents itself to you during this period, apply it, understand it and when you are ready use it to your advantage.

The Moon leaves playful Leo and enters Virgo. Virgo Moon is very interested in learning, it loves breaking things down and making sense of things, mastering topics and understanding how things work especially if it can help others solve problems.

The New Moon in Leo only took place a couple of days ago and is still in the New Moon phase! So if you have not yet had the time to write down you New Moon wishes so it’s not too late!

Happy New Moon manifesting.

Thursday, July 6, 2017.

The Sun trines Neptune and forms a challenging aspect to Jupiter.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

The Moon squares Neptune in Pisces.

Today, much like yesterday you can expect to continue working with your own understanding and exploration of your path forward.We are all in the process of taking, understanding and thinking about  the cycles that were highly activated yesterday. Spend time on today engaging in an active contemplation of your philosophical and spiritual understanding, especially in regards to your place in the world.

The Moon is in adventurous, expansive  Sagittarius all day. What a great energy to open up to the world, plan a trip and hang out with friends. When the Moon is in Sagittarius we take a philosophical attitude and approach to problems or challenges in our lives. Mundane and emotionally draining activities and routine bore Sagittarius so get out and get active and experience a change in scenery will help restless energies today. This position of the Moon also encourages us to get out be spontaneous,is there a new way of thinking that calls your name? Search it out. Form a spirited approach to the world with a philosophical understanding.

The Moon squares Neptune in Pisces. Today is great for really zeroing down and focusing on your dreams. For some it can mean actually realizing what your dreams are. This can happen naturally through day dreaming or it can happen via by other people. You may also realize today that your dreams may involve other people, such as joining an organisation or teaming up with someone talented to help you with a project or hobby. The key for today is to take your dreams and making them a reality and it is especially favorable if your dreams involve others!!! Today could be the day you get the courage to talk to your dream girl and ask her out…

 

Have a great day.

Dreamy Friday 16/06/2017

Friday June 16th, 2017.

The Moon is in Pisces.

Neptune goes Retrograde.

This is a time for the energy to be easing up a little, as the Moon spends the day in dreamy Pisces and aligns with Pisces’ modern ruler, Neptune, which is stationing retrograde today.

Neptune is the planet of dreams and inspiration, it is a water planet. It is represented as King Neptune in mythology the ruler of the seas and is related to the high priestess in the tarot. So with all this water energy , Neptune rules our dreams, emotions, intuition and in particularity our ability to manifest . We will have access to all the universal knowledge and being in touch with your collective unconscious. We are passive and ready to receive those message, gut feels and that wisdom of the universe.

When Neptune stations retrograde the energy seems to go backwards, which means it is even more passive. What happens is that you become more intuitive, you become in tune with your own self and the spiritual and creative guidance you receive will increase. You will have the capability to hear the messages meant for you from the universe loud and clear , heightened insights , heightened receptivity and  guidance for the next coming 5 months,until November 22nd pretty awesome hay! The rest of the year really tune in , listen to the guidance that is being given to you, dreams, repetitive thoughts, feelings, ideas, this is the key to getting the best out of 2017!

Over the next 5 months we see a rise in personal creativity and output. let the creative juices flow and inspiration energy is high, so pay attention all you writers, artist and healers. Those who work with the spiritual realm, if you feel that you are one that can channel spiritual information do so! Especially when it comes to putting into your work, projects and art.

However, Neptune governs the veils but he also governs the mists of confusion.The retrograde cycle can be a time of indecision or feeling in limbo, but it can also be a period of inner discovery. This can also be a period of time a sensitive and perhaps confusing one.

Happy day dreaming!

The Energy Shifts! The Daily grind 11/05/2017

Thursday May 11th, 2017.

The Moon moves into Sagittarius.

Mars is in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces.

Mercury in Aires and trines Saturn in Sagittarius.

The Full Moon moves into Sagittarius this afternoon. Mars is in Gemini and it squares Neptune in Pisces. Mercury is still in Aires and trines Saturn in Sagittarius. HMM now things are getting very interesting. Lets start with the intense energy of yesterdays Full Moon, along with it bringing lots of transformation energy, and now today after it has hit its peak we wake up today and there is a big decrease in the energy flowing.

We still have big dreams but we have the lack of energy to chase them. I’ll call it a Full Moon energetically emotional hangover. The mood today is like we are hopeless day dreamers in a sense. The energy and the action needed will be a lot harder to source, If you are like me than you may have run out of steam.

Like i mentioned on Monday, we will have experienced a full spectrum of energy by the end of the week. It has gone from being uplifting, sociable, positive, intense, healing, transformational, action packed and now we lack the courage to approach our self to find all these attributes. One extreme to another. Just rest up today you have been stretched mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.

Mars in truthful Gemini loves to be direct and today it forms an uncomfortable square to mystical Neptune. This can build tension and friction, as Mars loves drive and action and well Neptune loves to dissolves ego driven energy and action. Because this is a tense aspect we may need to reality check ourselves, especially avoiding an honest confrontation with others and yourself based on hasty emotions, ( Full Moon are great at heightening our emotions).

On a positive note, the depth and intensity of the Scorpio Full Moon, and this Mars/ Neptune gives way when the Moon enters Sagittarius. If you fancy letting off some steam, letting your hair down and overindulging yourself, i say go for it! Sagittarius are all about the naughty, cheeky, excessive enjoyments of life. So your desire for adventure and fun may be the key to brightening our day.

 

Happy Thursday!

The Energy is Shifting! 09/05/17 Daily Grind.

Tuesday May 9th, 2017.

The Sun  in Taurus.

The Sun trines Pluto in Capricorn.

Mercury and Uranus both in Aires.

The Moon enters Scorpio.

Today is one of those days a major shift happens as I mentioned yesterday. Universally it will begin to happen and fast.

The Moon moves into Scorpio this morning. Now yesterday we had the Moon in harmonious, social, chatty, relationship focused and balanced Libra, and now we see the Moon enter sassy Scorpio who thrives on uncovering mysteries. Scorpio loves delving deep into places we have hidden within our self , its  truthful, sensual and brings your emotions to a deep dive into intensity and passion.

Today we also have Mercury in Aires still coming out of its retrograde shadow period and it’s still conjunting Uranus in Aires ( if you missed out have a read of yesterdays post). It’s a total shift from Monday were we where sociable and positive, we now are very self focused and questioning” What about my feelings” “Why aren’t my needs been met” ” What about my ideas” , Why isn’t anybody listening to me!

Today be aware there is potential for frustration and burst of annoyance, in all areas of your life, work, love, friends, people who are giving you a service. Monday you seen yourself as a part of something larger working along with others and today well its all about ME, ME ME ME..

The Sun is in earthy stubborn Taurus. The Sun than forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. With the Sun and Pluto tangoing in the sky, it helps us align our ego with our conscious self, it also brings along the issues of power and empowerment to the dance floor. Its energy will be a spotlight shining front and center! For both the good and potentially the bad, depends on how you look at life.. is it  a lesson or a blessing. However this is a great chance for us to use this power for transformation and empowerment.

Today can be a powerful time for insights, what issues have you been struggling to come to a conclusion with? We have a lot of earth signs in the chart today, so emotional confusion will not be in the mix.  This can be a time of mental breakthroughs, creative envisioning, innovative thinking, and you may find our interest will be on the material world, our finances, career, improving our health and vitality!

Good luck and just remember to breath and smile tomorrow is a new day!

Daily Grind 8/05/17

Monday May 8th, 2017.

The Moon is in Libra.

The Moon quincunxes the Sun in Taurus and opposes Mercury in Aires and Uranus in Aires.

Happy Monday everyone. Just heads up this week is a little yin and yang.One day we will experience one thing and the next day the complete opposite.  harsh energy shifts from one extreme to another. Heads up to those who don’t like change or struggle with change , who love consistency and the uncomplicated. Unfortunately this may not be your week. This week is going to provide us with high and low energy and it will be all over the place.

The Libra Moon quincunxes the Sun in Taurus and opposes Mercury in Aires as well as Uranus in Aires. So we see Mercury the communication planet and Uranus the planet of rebelling both in the sign of Aires. With both these planets in Aires we can become very forceful, and much more confident in the way we communicate we will have a sense that you are always right, highly confident and well cocky. Just be aware before you shoot a loaded gun ( your mouth and temper). However with the lovely energy of Libra beaming down on us we will try to find balance and harmony in our interactions with others.

Today is a very social start to the week. The Moon in Libra who is very relationship orientated,provides us with a great time to be with and connect with others. Spend time with ones you love, especially if of late you have been struggle to find answer to problems or situations. Today is a great time to converse and brain storms with people you trust. think about the fresh perspectives you may get. Today is also a great day to attempt at strengthening and supporting others, both personal and professional.

 

Have a great day!

Are you suffering symptoms of Mercury Retrograde?

Yes , we are in a Mercury Retrograde, and yes it moved back into Aries last week where it will stay in this sign until May 16th (Although Mercury’s retrograde will end on May 3rd).

Mercury Retrograde is great at helping bring to our attention those shadow parts of us, parts we may of felt that didn’t need healing. Mercury retrograde is great at highlighting where the healing lies and the truth can be found. In Mercury Retrograde communication, travel, technology, equipment, travel and contracts can be upside down, backwards, misinterpreted, breakdowns and unnecessary disagreements occur.

At work, you can find yourself frustrated even though you’re sure that you’ve explained yourself clearly, people around you do the opposite and your fail-proof computer crashes. You experience equipment and mechanical breakdowns of all types even at home, when out and your car!

Mercury does rule the mind, mental clarity, talking, self-expression so all these over this period can become  unreliable, filled with misinformation where important data is missing or misunderstood. During this period we should watch for too hasty communications as Mercury rules our communications and thought process and well in Aires we can become very direct ,assertive and self-centered. Say what must be said but try to remember to do so with kindness and compassion.

Mercury Retrograde in Aires gives us the courage to take action on something you have struggled with over the past few weeks. What curve balls have you been dealing with over the past month? What repetitive issues seem to be surfacing? Career, a friendship, your living circumstance, a draining relationship?

If you  have found yourself or parts of yourself being exposed, and in order to work on yourself you are stressed you must remember that you also need to love yourself unconditionally. When there is a lot going on give yourself some space, as much as the mind wants order, you will find when too much is going on we get agitated and stressed. When there is times of stress you must remember you are feeling a lot of things, so give yourself some space. Give yourself permission to experience those emotions instead of categorising it, organising it. Just let what needs to be revealed,happen. In these topsy upside and can be dark days of stress and frustration use your energy and see the small joys and blessing in your day. Even though you may be suffering and want to go on strike, see the small happy moments in the day and the lesson in the bad situations! Don’t stuff your feelings away,

The discomfort  and madness we are going through and experience on any level in Mercury Retrograde or not there is a choice to choose love and happiness! You can love someone and be mad, you can be frustrated but still caring, go with the flow, be present to everything that’s going on during this period, and don’t disqualify it because there is discomfort!! It often takes deep courage to admit to your mistakes and it is likely that is a necessary part of the conversation you must have. We all make mistakes, take responsibility and move forward with determination and love.
