New Moon Energy! 16/04/2018.

New Moon in Aries.

Mercury in Aries semisquares Venus in Taurus.

We have a New Moon in Aries in our midst, as the Sun and Moon meet at 180 degree of one and another, the Moon recharges its batteries for the next lunar cycle. This month it is recharging with Aries energy. New beginnings and taking action are they key words for this New Moon. Forward momentum, getting on with things and life whilst taking action on those plans you have put aside especially now Mercury retrograde is over and it has stationed direct!

The New Moon in Aries, represents a time of going inward and regenerating. Pulling n Aries energy from the Sun. We are at a time of empowerment, progression and future thinking. Aries being the first sign of the zodiac means it is a new lunar year! Aries is a fire sign passionate and driven. It is a pioneer and its energy is related to igniting yourself and getting things started. These months expect motivation, being impulsive, desire,charm and generating ideas. As Aries is ruled by Mars the male planet, this sign has lots of masculine qualities about it. Strength, manual labour and self-assertion, it is also a time to reflect on what you care about. It is a time to ask yourself.. What do I need to get myself started on the right path. What aspect of your life do you want to make progression in? Your Career? Physical health? relationships?

The New Moon is at 26 degrees, two and six equals eight. Eight in numerology is power number! So not only are we lucky enough to be getting a jump-start by pulling in Aries energy, which is very goal oriented and GO GO GO energy that is driven to focus on the future, we will also be empowered and magnified. This is about you this month, what you want and what you want to achieve.

Mercury in Aries semisquares Venus in Taurus. This can cause a little upset with our heart and our mind. Inner and outer conflicts with our relationships can happen, as we seek independence as well as connection with others. Watch out and don’t put your foot in it, unless you really need to speak up today. As my wise mother always told me, think before you speak! Meet people in the middle, don’t let your thoughts and impulses dictate your actions especially if you feel your emotions or thoughts going from 1 – 100 in seconds. On a more positive note, your thoughts, communications and insights arising today can shed light on what is awry in our relationships, both personal and business.

Retrograde Mercury squares Saturn in Capricorn.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Retrograde Mercury squares Saturn in Capricorn. Causing some unwanted tension between our intellect and communication and the planet of Karma and Lessons. You can probably anticipate an early morning disagreement or worse an argument this morning if you do not watch out. This disagreement may not only be with another person but it could happen internally. Mercury in Aries is very much “I want” and ” I am going to say what I think is right”  Head butting with the Teacher and Master of structure, saying well no this is how it is going to be. This aspect could be great for reigning in your ego. The key for today is…  You must aim to not just say things or do things before thinking of the long-term consequences. Push through your sense of reluctance that Saturn will be bestowing on you today, by thinking things through on an objective level.

The day can only get better from there, and it does! For the rest of the day, you should be in relatively high spirits feeling seen and appreciated in this magical world. This is due to the Moon being in lively Sagittarius all day. The energy is lightened and the mood is tainted with a go and get them approach. You are fun and thrill seeking and are attracted to new situations especially if it means a new conquest. Remember, in all of your interactions with others keep your spirits as bubbly as possible and don’t forget to share the good positive vibes around. 

 

Happy Thursday!

Are you suffering symptoms of Mercury Retrograde?

Yes , we are in a Mercury Retrograde

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.

MERCURY RETROGRADE in Aires! 22/03/2018

Thursday, March 22, 2018.

MERCURY RETROGRADE in Aires!

The Moon is in Gemini.

By the time you wake up this morning, the Moon has entered inquisitive, ambitious, intellectual and restless Gemini. While the Moon makes her way through Gemini, you will find that not only yourself but others  tend to be more light-hearted, social and talkative.Gemini in is an Air sign so thoughts and communications come into play today. Curiosity and being alert of your surrounds and the conversations being had will spark your interest,  also you will be more aware and more alert of others intentions. However, today being Mercury Retrograde  don’t be surprised if your communications or you normally quick ways if thinking somehow fall flat.

Mercury, the communication and mental realm planet that rules Gemini turns Retrograde This may leave you feeling somehow stuck in your communications in the way you think, your travel plans, business plans, home  loans and contracts.

During this period we may struggle or have some difficulties saying what we want to say, or saying things that leave you wondering” Why the hell did I just say that, i didn’t mean it in that context” well that’s if you can even manage to get the words out.

Keys to remember during this Mercury Retrograde…

  • It is best not to start new projects, but it is a great time to reconsidering an initiative venture or project. It’s great for coming up with new ideas and adventures, but remember do not pursue them yet!!! Dream, draw up plans, make list get the all the  information together first and review review review! It’s also strong time for returning, revisiting and rethinking an old project or pursuit you have left on the back burner.We can gain new clarity during  this upside down period!
  • The shortness of  Aries communications is magnified making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of topics and wording. The chances of sharp or  harsh comments can do some damage in the long run.
  • Mercury rules information, communication, reasoning, our manner of thinking, travel, technology, logic and how we express all of these! Its our thought processes and all Mercury related things right now can be off-center. It may feel difficult to say what you want to say, and you can leave conversations  wondering if you were understood. Communications are scrambled. Expected the unexpected and clarify all that you do, travel plans, communication , instructions, save and back up your work and even get people to relay what you have just said to them to avoid mishaps. And if you don’t get whats being said relay it back! everyone is experience this Mercury Retrograde!
  • As I mention Mercury is related to technology so for the next month if you can avoid it, it is not the best time to buy a phone, new computer or tv.
  • Signing your life away for a new home, a lease, car or any contracts BE CARE read all the information, as not all the information is not in yet or could be missing. Human error, computer error and Mercury error is in play and we do not want to regret doing anything later.

When Mercury Retrograde is in Aries, our mind and thoughts are going at a thousand miles an hour! Everything is GO GO GO, we may get frustrated if people are not thinking or doing as quick as we are. Aries energy when communicating is magnified.. EEk making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of words, tones and topics.There will be a chances that we may become sharp, blunt or unemotional when making comments and this can do damage. If you feel like you can’t get out of your head and its building up to a point of frustration and you want to explode take a breath, go for a walk, exercise and take some time to reign your thoughts! Do not let your temper, stubborn, impulsive mind take over your mind and how we communicate to others. Aires Mercury Retrograde has the ability to make us feel as what we say and feel is the right way, and have the arrogance to ignore the facts, When people who question our logic and reasoning we can act impulsively and aggressively! As my mother also told me ” Andy THINK before you speak or act ”

 

Some say this will be a time of tension, however, we need to remember the positive side of  Mercury in Aries. Mercury in Aires wants progress, answers, no more procrastination. Its time to push our self to make those positive steps to benefit our self in the long run. Get through obstacles, push our own boundaries, be selfish for once.We have the courage to get the message across and speak up for our self when normally we would sit in silence. When Mercury is in Aires especially when its stationed retrograde we have a great opportunity  to taker a step back and have a deeper look at our past decisions, patterns, behaviors and ideas from a new and possibly enlightening  perspective. Change is highly possible!

Please ,carefully consider how to manage the turbulent energy of Aires this Mercury Retrograde which continues until April 15th. Remember, Mercury retrograde is a powerful time for accomplishment if you plan and prepare accordingly. Something I really need to take note on!

Happy Mercury Retrograde gang!

Motivation is in the Air! 19/02/2018.

Monday February 19th 2018.

 Venus in Pisces semisquares Uranus in Aries

The Moon is in Aries.

When the Moon is in Aries, you feel like you have been given an energy drink! The day is filled with high energy, impulsive and driven energy. Use this wisely, channel it and get things done it’s also wonderful for new beginnings, re assessing our goals, ambition, drive and we’re ready to take the initiative with enthusiasm. However, Aries has the tendency to take things to far, try to avoid conflict and if you feel that your temper is getting the best of you, re- direct your attention and don’t act on impulse! Exercise is a great outlet for stress, competitive sport can be a great motivator under the Aires Moon.

 

Venus in Pisces semisquares Uranus in Aries. This creates some unwanted tension and friction between the planet that rules love and beauty and the rebellious and revolutionary planet. When Venus is in the dreamy sign of Pisces our ideas of love and money are met with unrealistic exceptions at times. It as if we are wearing rose-coloured glasses and the truth is blurred! With Uranus in the mix our reality is brought to our attention, certain areas that Venus rules over that requires change (Even if we don’t see it yet) will be highlighted! Change is here, and its up to us whether we accept it and move forward especially in regards to our self-love and worth!

Happy Monday!

Impulsion, empowerment and Healing is the Name of the Game! 14/12/2017

Thursday, December 14, 2017.

The Moon is in Scorpio.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius semisextiles Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon is in deeply, private intense Scorpio today. This Scorpio Moon than forms personal relationships to Mercury , Jupiter and Neptune today. Today will be a mixed bag of expansion, healing and dreamy emotions.

The Scorpio Moon gives us a great urge to dive deep into any mystery that has pulled at your sleeve as of late. We are less interested in superficial conversations or connections with others and prefer one on one deep interactions and exchanges today. Emotional connection is strong on your list today, along with passion, sexuality and anything/anyone that runs deep in your veins.

The Scorpio Moon aligns with expansive with Jupiter. This can stimulate our desire to go bigger and larger. Expanding your hand out to whomever or whatever needs you. Which however can include over indulging on the naughty things in life and a huge possibility to go over the top. This very much includes our feelings and attachment to outcomes. So watch out if you start top feel overwhelmed, irritated, irrational, and ready to act out on emotional whims and impulses. This warning does include going out and eating or drinking your emotions to drown your sorrows!!! As tomorrow the regret of what you sad and done will hit you harder than today. However you choose to spend the day, you will want to control the depth and intensity of the narrative and tone of the day and those impulses.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius semisextiles Pluto in Capricorn. The Lord of death and rebirth joins up with the planet that rules our thoughts and our communications. This lovely aspects helps us to link up and supports our inner journey to dive deeper into communication, thinking and contemplation. Need to get clarity or shine some light onto self truths? Today is the day to get real with yourself, is there someone you trust to talk to, call them up go for coffee? Or get writing in your journal as expression is the best way to unlock that part of us hiding away or denying the truth. With the Scorpio Moon energy emotional truths can be uplifted up for transmutation and healing.

Remember guys, any connections you make at the moment with others or with yourself will be very empowering and deep. There is a  potentially for some potent healing right now. Allow your passion, transformation and  depth, to guide you and help you to move you forward on your personal path.

 

Happy Thursday!

Its going to be Yin Or Yang! 12/12/17.

Tuesday, December 12, 2017.

Sun in Sagittarius joins Mercury Retrograde.

The Moon is in Libra.

The Moon spends the day in Libra again today, as like yesterday we’re doing a balancing act and creating harmony in our world. We draw upon our charm, charisma and our negotiation skills now. The ease of Monday’s and today’s balanced Libra Moon, gives way to more activity and the possibility of tension as the Moon makes a difficult challenging aspects to both destructive Pluto and rebellious Uranus. If you can do anything today, make sure if tension arises, especially form the past to re-engage and re focus your emotions, think before you react and see the story from all sides before you act out on emotions and thoughts.

The adventurous, fun-loving Sagittarius Sun joins with talkative Mercury. Today marks  the midway point of the current mercury retrograde journey, YAY! Mercury has the ability for us to place the focus on our thoughts and communications. Today with the Sun and Mercury interacting we gain some insights or have “aha” moments, as information or certain truths come to Light, especially truths that have been hard to come up with a conclusion or closure.

Today, with the Sagittarius and Libra energy, mixed with Mercury illuminating the skies, it is going to be a good day to interact with others. However, don’t forget for a single moment that we are still in Mercury retrograde, and that means the conversations we hear or the way we interpret the conversation or messages could be a mixed bag. Make sure you hear what is actually being said rather than what you expect to hear or want to hear. Besides the jumbling of information it will either be a great day or mingling and excitement or challenging and regretful. This alignment between Mercury and the Sun also highlights or awaken new ideas and inspiration pay attention to your thoughts.

Have a good day!

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius semi squares Jupiter in Scorpio.

The Moon is in Leo.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius forms a challenging semi squares Jupiter in Scorpio. This can cause some tension between what the mind thinks and what the truth actually is. Communication, truths and finding out what is hidden in the shadows will be tempting today but if we have strength and willingness to work within our self to uncover whats hidden within, waiting to be healed is the key today and not trying to find the dark shadow truths of others. Furthermore, watch out in the way you communicate today, as your’s and others communications can be off and misinterpreted, also watch out for speaking carelessly and pay attention to slips of the tongue! As we are in Mercury retrograde and our thoughts, reactions and communication can be misunderstood, and unexpected mishaps can happen right now! The best way to navigate through this energy is to take things slow and to give yourself time, With Mercury in Retrograde rocking the boat with Saturn still, we are still feeling its impact and rocky energy. Try to take any challenges with a grain of salt.

With the Moon being in playful Leo today, the Leo energy eases up the tension in the air, as it is great for treating yourself to some fun, excitement or chase your expressive creative pursuits. Make it a priority today to do something you love. Go to the beach, see a movie, take your dog for a walk, get your energy up and active, go on a date or dance the night away. This Leo moon energy will also help break up all the intense Mercury/Saturn energy. Get in touch with your inner child, engage in the love and romance, and playfulness. Just enjoy the simple things in life today

 

 

Have an amazing Thursday.

Venus enters Sagittarius 01/12/2017!

Friday, December 1, 2017.

Venus enters Sagittarius.

Mars in Libra opposes retrograde Uranus in Aries.

Early this morning Venus moves out of Scorpio and entered freedom-loving Sagittarius. Venus is the planet that represents our deepest values, beauty, money, love, relationships and thus shifts the Goddess of beauty from water energy to fire energy. Venus brings our awareness to the beauty of each sign. When Venus was in Scorpio the energy was passionate, intense and possessive and now that Venus is in Sagittarius we can find our self valuing our freedom, appreciating spontaneous acts of love and grand gestures. On the other hand, some may prefer to explore, be alone and free, reach out and expand. Now, as Venus moves into Sagittarius, the lessons of love take a lighter turn. Venus in Sagittarius is also a great time to explore, travel and expand our hearts, minds and all the beauty that surrounds us.

Venus will remain in Sagittarius until December 25th, 2017. It is time to think of love, money, and beauty as a philosophical quest, as an extension of us, as a time to be free and seek the space you need to be creative. Its a time to love on your terms, to let your mind expanded and a time to let the bonds that hold you back loosen as you fall into the arms of love this month. However do not fall into the trap of the shadow side of Venus in Sadge, such as that you can be seduced by the idea of a sudden flash of fortune, new love interest and be ready to drop the world in pursuit of what you perceive is happiness. Thinking that the grass is always greener on the other side, and that your actions and words don’t affect others around you. Being to impulsive and reckless and going to big and to far, beyond a point of no return.

Another highly significant planetary occurrence happens today an opposition between action-taking Mars forms and dynamic, unexpected and revolutionary Uranus. Creating tension between our will and drive and the part of us related to our inner rebel and revolutionary self! This cycle although it seems very doom and gloom helps us get more direction in regards to the part of us that may need courage to take revolutionary actions that need to take in place in your own life and for the humanitarian needs not just in our own life but the collective lives around the world. This cycle between Mars and Uranus is approximately a two-year cycle of bringing courage and direct action and it begun back in February this year. Looking back, carefully consider what began at that time, what was your vision and what actions have you taken to reach this vision? If you have planets or points between 23 and 27 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), in your birth chart, you can expect this will have direct significance in your personal life.

Happy Friday!

A Serious Tone to today! 28/11/17!

 

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017.

Mercury in Sagittarius conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius.

In the early hours of this morning, a new cycle begins between Mercury and Saturn join together as they bring your attention to conversations, effort and work. This means we are getting in a serious committal frame of mind. Both planets are in the last degrees of Sagittarius, which means we are being asked to look at very significant issues from the perspective of our highest understanding. We see Mercury turning retrograde on Sunday, and then we see this aspect between them both happen again on January 13th 2018. During this time we are being asked and been given time to contemplate the serious intent involved in regards to our lives, work and life lessons.

Saturn enters Capricorn on December 20th, 2017. This means we will be called to   stabilize our thinking, really focus and get clear on what direction you want to go in regards to your work, growth, and your greater understanding of yourself and the world.When they join together in January, they’ll be in the early degrees of Capricorn and asking that we go to a deeper place of  responsibility and integrity!

Mercury represents our rational mind, communication and our everyday expression. If you have your birth chart yo can see where Mercury sits in to have a deeper understanding of what makes you curious, and what areas of life mentally appeal and stimulate you. Mercury in your chart reveals how you get your point across and in what style. Saturn is the Master planet, that is the teacher of life lessons and karma! When these two form a conjunction it shows up in our life areas that require responsibility, contemplative, and seriousness. This aspect activates our logical minds, we will seek a higher meaning and information and wont worry our time on superficial matters. We are goal orientated and focus on realistic outcomes instead of fanciful dreams with this planetary aspect. However this aspect’s shadow side, we can be over focused and obsessed with the detail, work and the bigger picture. We become OCD and overlooking the effect we have on others in regards to our actions in reaching these goals. We get hung up on making mistakes or failing! During this period try to look at the bright side when things don’t work out and learn to laugh at your own mistakes and take some time out to laugh and enjoy life. Don’t become to over focused and obsessed on the big picture that you lose sight on why you begun it in the first place!

 

Happy Tuesday!
