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?

Happy Full Moon Day

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.

Mercury enters Leo 05/07/2017

Mercury enters Leo.

Cancer Sun forms  trine aspect to  Neptune.

The Moon enters Sagittarius.

The Sun forms a challenging square aspect to idealistic Jupiter.

Today we can anticipate powerful energy shifts as we have a fair bit going on in the sky  today! Optimism and expansion are key words for today.

When you wake up today the Moon would have left the deep emotional space of Scorpio behind to enter adventurous , fun-loving Sagittarius, which is known to be the sign of philosophical expansion and exploration.

Mercury enters playful Leo today where it will transit until the 25th July. The energy will shift from water to fire, yin to a yang inward to outward energy. Our communication and thinking will go from being inwards, reflecting and emotionally heavy to being passionate, expressive and adventurous. This is a  great position for loving to learn, growing, being curious and sharing knowledge with others. Your conversations and actions will become more animated and dramatic over the coming days. However the downfall of Mercury in Leo can be that Leo are mostly right, they love teaching but will never be the student, being center of attention and overly dramatic. So enjoy the energy lighten, Mercury loves the spotlight, and being the center of attention so immediately our thoughts are positive and excitable.

The nurturing Cancer Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to mystical , dreamy Neptune. This position that begin in March is great for those wanting to develop and deepen their spirituality, compassion and sensitivity. It’s about lucid and mystical dreams, imagination, and the loosening of boundaries. Can you remember back to March and what seeds of intention you planted? What you wanted to open up to on a soul level?

The Sun in Cancer forms a challenging square aspect to idealistic Jupiter. This cycle began in September of 2016.  This cycle is meant to help us expand our higher philosophical understanding of the world, can you remember back last year as to the seeds of opportunity and deep understanding you planted? How far has the seed and yourself grown?

Clearly, these two cycles are working together to bring awareness to your philosophical understanding and spiritual growth. Some may be struggling to align your beliefs or faith with your goals the key is to honor yourself and your path.

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!

Things are changing up today!

The Moon enters Sagittarius.

The Moon in Sagittarius than opposes Mercury in Gemini.

We see the Moon in Scorpio most of the day before it enters Sagittarius late tonight. This Moon in Sagittarius than opposes Mercury in Gemini. Later this afternoon we could expect friction in communication, on the plus side we may have a huge desire to learn something new or to discovery something new for yourself. Go with the flow and you never know how much you may be pleasantly surprised.

The Moon is in sassy Scorpio most of the day! bringing out our desire to uncover the taboo and hidden.Today it is best to focus and invest your attention on mundane activities. This is not a day to take on significant communications or to begin new projects as the Moon is in Void position. The Moon enters Sagittarius tonight where it will transit until Saturday. This position will stimulate a desire to break out of our shells and our routine, seek adventures and expansion. We may also find that we are getting excited about new places, people, and experiences. So stay optimistic, enjoy the energy boost that is about to hit and surprise your partner or a friend with an invite to a restaurant, adventure or an evening of fun!

Have a great day!

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!

The Moon is in Scorpio.

The Moon opposes Mars in Taurus, sextiles Pluto in Capricorn quincunxes the Sun in Aires and Uranus in Aires.

Good Morning! We are still in the Full Moon phase in Scorpio! This Full Moon forms lots of relationships today. The Moon opposes Mars in Taurus, sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, quincunxes the Sun in Aires and Uranus in Aires . Wow what a powerful day to get things done and done your way.. Today has the energy that is all about what you want, when and how you what it, and how you get it. However there is a huge potential for conflict today, think about it if you have those attitudes today .Clashing and bumping heads with others is likely to happen today. Today there is opportunity for us to be inpatient, stubborn, head strong and unwilling to uncompromising. Remember to add to all this that the Full Moon energies are also intense. so just remember to BREATH!

Allow yourself to rest in a space of emotional connection, depth, and empowerment throughout the morning with all this intense energies around.Try to get some serious exercise or any activity to get some of this excess energy built up, follow that with a hot bath, a massage and a cup of tea, and get to bed early to avoid drama and stress!

Don’t forget this energy is not automatically a negative. It can show up as excitement  just as easily as unsettled anxiety.

Happy Thursday and have a great Easter.

Full Moon in Libra 10/4/17

Monday April 10th, 2017.

The Full Moon in Libra.

Mercury and Venus in Retrograde.

As we approach the Full Moon in Libra late tonight can you feel the tension and energy building? I can tell you I sure have! The Full Moon in Libra happens very late tonight into the Early hours of tomorrow 11/4/17. As the Full Moon moves through Libra, what can you do what we can to create harmony in your environment. Full Moons traditionally are all about forcing us to look at where things in our lives need to change, your home life, your relationships, your job, your unhealthy habits, diet , stress etc.. The Libra Moon is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded so incorporate these energies into your life especially if things are a chaotic .

Yes, both Venus (who happens to be ruled by Libra) and Mercury are both retrograde. That just means for us today, keep your head down, and go with the flow. Communications can be misinterpreted during Mercury retrograde. Go home have a quiet night and focus on cleaning up aspects of your life such finances, partnerships, projects that have been left on the back burner for too long. Tie up loose ends! On the plus side there is potential to be a relatively easygoing day, even as we adjust to Mercury’s retrograde motion.

Happy Monday!

Monday 3rd April, 2017.

 The First quarter Moon in Cancer.

The Cancer Moon trines Neptune in Pisces.

Happy Monday.

Today starts off really we. We have the First quarter Moon in sensitive, emotional , watery Cancer all day long. Early today the Moon makes a lovely aspects to Neptune in Pisces making it extra dreamy and intuitive in the morning hours.

Now when we talk about the first quarter Moon we really are referring to a starting point. Last week we had a New Moon, where the Moon was in complete darkness, Now we see the Moon moving towards a Full Moon, where it is completely lit up and illuminated. The first quarter Moon is half was journey to being full. There is a sense of anticipation ,and energy building up and that Moon in Cancer and Neptune energy really gives you a sense of drive and a boost energy, combined with dreaming about what your future could be like. This means there is a sense of hope, and a sense of enthusiasm, if I can dream it i can make it happen.

Today is a nice change, as we have seen and felt some intense energy as of late, with the New astrological year, a New Moon and Venus in retrograde. Venus continues to retrograde until the 15/4/2017 and its effects have been felt by most . It has left a lot of us feeling a lack of love and beauty for themselves, for others, and a lack of love for what you are doing in your lives. But with The First quarter Moon in nurturing Cancer and Neptune in dreamy Pisces we feel a sense of hope for the future and love. Today is beautiful, full of surprises  in a positive way. We have a smile for our up coming future, so look out for the magic and synchronicity today.

Have a great day!

The Sun is in Aires.

The Moon is in Aquarius.

Mercury forms a square to Pluto today and is nearing an opposition to Jupiter, creating a T-square configuration.

 

The energy changes up today as the Moon will be in Aquarius ,then the Moon sextiles Venus in Aires and the Sun in Aires. There is great potential today for inspiration in terms of your ideas or a technological discovery! So if you are an academic, a scientist or an inventor today is your day to make a break through! Today is an excellent for deep study or to work on a powerful speech or other significant writing project.

Mercury in Aires forms a square to Pluto today and is nearing an opposition to Jupiter, creating a T-square configuration, this can lead to a shake up and wake up of energies, especially in regards to our communications, ideas and information coming in. We can be very expressive and subjective… however just watch out, as we might too easily jump to conclusions, get heated and over react and please remember to be aware of your words, emails, and all communications.. Today give yourself some extra breathing room, get creative, think freely and be ready to explore!

Happy Thursday!
