The First Quarter Moon is in Taurus.

The day continues with the steadfast Taurus Moon now in its first quarter phase. The Taurus Moon allows us a slow sensual awareness to the day full of all life pleasure.

In astrology they say that the first quarter Moon phase energy is surrounded by a “Crises” theme.Keep in mind that crisis implies not only difficulties or obstacles but opportunities for us as well. It’s a time to take it easy and reflect instead of rushing into ideas or plans without thinking it through. If we can take a more relaxed approach to life know your plans will develop easily. Don’t bite off more than you can chew it’s about creating a balance between taking action and overdoing it.

We are heading towards a Mars and Uranus conjunct early tomorrow, the fierce energy is starting to build throughout today. Mars in Aires will conjunct Uranus the planet of rebellion chaos and the unknown. Mars loves being in its home sign of Aires, it’s all about our desire to succeed, change as well as our drive and our wants. Its energy is also associated with our desire to protect and in some cases destroy. Being independent, knocking down obstacles and overcoming any resistance is the main theme for Mars in Aires. Uranus and Mars energy combined means electricity, will power and a strong force to achieve the un- achievable. Nothing or know one is going to stand in your way of your inner desires. Mars conjunct Uranus represents the beginning of a cycle of demanding change and for us to break free from some situation in our life that is restricting you from future growth and abundance.

 

Have a great day!

Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Leo 21/01/2019.

 

Monday 21st January, 2019.

Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Leo.

Early this morning and late last night while you were sleeping the second eclipse of the month, a Full Moon lunar eclipse occurred. Lunar Eclipses are just like regular Full Moon only stronger, its effects will be felt for the next 6 months. During this Full Moon lunar eclipse, we are offered a unique opportunity to reset our emotions along with a chance to clear away much discomfort or old energy from recent months. Think back over the past few months? Can you see a past issue or problem that clearly has seemed beyond view until now? Open your eyes, you may be surprised at what you have missed over the past few months that is now so clearly obvious.

This month’s Full Moon is in the playful sign of Leo. A Full Moon traditionally is when the Sun and the Moon are at 180 degrees of each other, this mean the Sun in Aquarius forms an opposition with the Moon in Leo. A Full Moon is a completion point of the Luna cycle. As it is completely illuminated with light, it showers us with not only Luna but solar energy. Lunar Eclipse’s interrupt this recharging of the Moon that is why eclipses are so powerful, important and its effects last six months.

This Full Moon in Leo will be fiery, energetic, charged and upbeat! This Moon will also be a Super Moon, meaning it appears much larger to our naked eye here on earth. The total lunar eclipse at 0 degrees Leo will mark the half way point of the current Eclipse season we are in. We had a partial Solar eclipse in Capricorn on 5th January, 2019. Eclipse are basically a radical time of change, growth and healing, and this Eclipse lines up with the North Node which is all about our destiny and karma.

This month, the Sun is in Aquarius at 0 degrees. It will be focused mainly on service to humanity. Aquarius is looking to the future and learning about how it can make life better for everyone as a whole. Its focus is at a more of a local point, its intelligent, witty, loves technology and its advancement. Aquarius asks “how can I be of service to others”. It’s interested in learning and making positive, radical change. This energy will be illuminating and charging up the beautiful Moon this month!

The Moon represent the most sensitive parts of us, it’s all about who we are and how we feel. The Moon is sitting at 0 degrees in Leo. In Leo, our inner child or your internal feelings are magnified and heightened! You want to explore, you want to feel alive, you are self-motivated and life becomes 10 shades of dramatic. You will find that you want to harness your power, you will get a much-needed cosmic confidence boost. You will be the life of the party, communicating and interacting with others will be a high priority over the coming weeks. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and we all know the Sun is the center of the solar system as is Leo personality, it illuminating, its life, it’s all about you and how you are as a person, and it represents your identity and sense of self. Leo loves being confident, it’s about “you being you” and not compromising that for no one!  Leo’s energy encompass optimism, being enthusiastic and enjoying life! Its fiery energy can burn through obstacles singe any stagnant energy that’s holding you back!

This Super Eclipse Moon is sitting next to the north node in 26 degrees Cancer. Whenever the Moon is near the north node it’s pulling energy in, karmic/ destiny energy. Numerology speaking 26 degrees adds up to eight. Eight is the number of abundance and power. So not only will we feel the effects of this powerful Moon, we will have the added bonus of north node in Cancer to help us achieve our goals and desires. Perhaps it’s wise to remember that Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and lunar eclipses bring to attention our inner emotions, what’s working in our life, relationships, our home life and how we can heal and transform those areas. In particular things that have been brewing under the surface, you will find surface up for transformation and change… Expect Fun, laughter and love as well as our relationships, children and family will be under a spotlight and become very important to us. Imagine a lioness taking care of her cubs! All these energies are intertwined and illuminated in us for the next 6 months. Make the most out of these energies. It’s time to not only get in touch with ourselves but those around us we love.

This Lunar Eclipse will have the ability to get us to review and access at our own emotions, our needs and what we “feel” is lacking from our life. The polarity between Leo and Aquarius is going to deal with our personal and our impersonal self, the key this Full moon is to find a balance between our egotistic, confidence and self-expressive side and the part of us that wants to help others, that is selfless and objective. The Leo Moon is proud, self-reliant and dramatic Aquarius Sun is values a more team player and individual approach to life.

Lunar Eclipses trigger a self-awareness in all of us, it allows matters come to light. From areas of your life that only may need a fine tune to areas that need a complete revamp. With so much energy floating around you should take a look at your natal chart for a clue to where you need to put your energy. See what areas of Leo rules over what house, this can give your insight to the areas that may come into focus now.  Deep down inside, despite all we ignore we know that change is necessary for growth.

On the shadow side with Leo Moon, you may face challenges or small hurdles with dramatic self-expression, resulting in your ‘inner-child’ being on full display. Over reacting, being overly dramatic, self-centered and always the center of attention, also watch out for the urge for temper tantrums. Another dark side includes taking situations and emotions to extreme for example arrogance, vanity and self-absorption Remember with a Leo Moon “Pride before a fall”. With an awareness of these tendency, it would be wise to determine if this full expression is in your best interest and adjust your behaviour and actions accordingly.

 

Happy Full Moon Day!

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn 2019

 

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn 2019.

Happy New Year! This weekend brings our first New Moon for the 2019! New Moons are all about setting intentions for the next Luna cycle…This New Moon is at 15° Capricorn. To make it extra special, it will be a partial solar eclipse. A solar eclipse is practically the same as a New Moon, when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun and is darkened. However, a Solar Eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun.  This Solar Eclipse in January 2019 astrology speaking means we will feel its effects for six months, unlike a New Moon which energy is felt for the coming month. New Moons are all about a fresh new start, and what a perfect time to begin as it is the new year to set practical intentions you want to achieve over the coming few months.

The Moon and the Sun are both in Capricorn sitting both 15 degrees. The Moon is pitch black at this point and its recharging itself for the new Luna cycle ahead. This month it is recharging itself and pulling in lots of with Capricorn energy. Capricorn is represented by the goat, it’s an earth sign that is hardworking, practical and takes each step in life carefully. Capricorn strives to get to the top, its ambitious, its leader, it takes charge. Capricorn is responsible as it is ruled by Saturn that Master teacher planet responsible for hard work , teaching and life lessons.

As the Moon represents our inner self, we will go internally and reflect on what opportunities are awaiting us for 2019 and what practical actions you can take to reach these opportunists to make your life better. Remember the seeds of opportunity we plant now will last for six months!

Now that we are in Capricorn season,  it is about taking any visions/goals/dreams and making them practical.. Its time make a plan, plants seeds of intention, set goals. Its time to really put in the hard work and make it real!

This is the ideal time to make a fresh start, it is also a great time for a life review! It is a time to self reflect and to question your old ways of living, your old habits and behaviors. The Universe is behind you as you have the ability to create or design new ways to grow and make progress. So take some time out to write your new goals on paper, make a bucket list, plant your seeds of intentions, journal your dreams and start making plans.

As I have mentioned the New Moon in Capricorn is practical and very willing to put in the hard-yards to achieve goals. Its hardworking and organised. This month incorporate these energies into your New Moon wish list. Plant seeds of abundance and prosperity. Whether it is in the form of your career, your home, perhaps starting a family, starting a business, organisation of your daily routine or achieving your dream job! Capricorn does not give up, it forges ahead no matter the obstacle! The grounded energy of this sign means we wont give up, so if you come across challenges such as your creative or business plans efforts don’t immediately kick off, don’t get frustrated, think long-term and remember this New Moon will keep you focused and determined. keep your eye on the prize and remember all the hard work you put in now will pay off when the time is right!

Slow and steady wins the race, the goat doesn’t sprint to the top of a mountain it is prepared for the long hall marathon to get to the top. Do not get frustrated and stressed over the trivial small things, think about your long-term goals. Start off small, write down practical achievable goals that will help thrust you into your dreams. Think about were you want to be in  six months?

These  first few weeks of January are a perfect time to set your intentions not only just for this Luna cycle, but also a ripple for the year 2019 ahead.

What a great start to 2019

Happy New Moon wishing and Happy New Year!

Mercury Enters Sagittarius 12/12/18.

 

Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

Mercury Enters Sagittarius.

Mercury the communication planet leaves the depth of Scorpio behind to enter into Sagittarius. Mercury teaches us how to think and what to think about. The energy now will be shifting from shining the light within to getting on your bike and cursing along. Sagittarius is all about looking at the horizon and it doesn’t particularly do very well with the details of the here and now. Mercury rules over our thought process, our communication, travel, documentation, ideas and our general mental realm. It teaches us through words, thoughts, and conversations. So make sure you dot the I and cross the T. Remember to pay attention to what’s in front of you, own your responsibilities instead of running away. Don’t always believe the grass is greener on the other side

Mercury will remain in this free-thinking sign until January 4th, 2019. Over the next few weeks expect your attitude, communication, thinking and ideas to expand with optimism and excitement. Your thoughts will not be dull and your senses and drive for adventure and travel will expand. perhaps you may want to learn something new or engage in broadening your philosophical wisdom

This conscious shift from water to fire energy will have your mind expanding to new great heights, our thoughts have no boundaries. It’s a great time to plan and book a holiday. When Mercury is in Sagittarius we tend to have tactless humor, impatience and boisterous opinions. With this said, and with our new-found boldness we perhaps should watch how we converse with others, keep in check our attitude towards others and always take in account what others are trying to tell you.

“A fool is made more of a fool, when their mouth is more open than their mind”

Monday Madness 29/10/2018.

Monday 29th October, 2018.

The Sun in Scorpio trines the Moon in Cancer.

Mercury conjuncts the Jupiter.

Mars forms a semi-square with Saturn.

 

The Sun in Scorpio trines the Moon in Cancer. The Sun in Scorpio represents our identity, saying this… our inner energy is more intense, emotional and we feel more inclined to seek out hidden truths no matter the cost. The Moon however, is all about our emotional feelings, and in its home sign of Cancer that means that part of us that loves to nurture, be connected to family, to love, along with our intuitive and sensitive side and will be the emotions/energies strongest felt today.

Mercury conjuncts the lucky planet Jupiter. So today there will be a large focus on the way you communicate with others and how you communicate will determine how you bring about luck and expansion into your life and into theirs. This Mercury/Jupiter conjunction also inspires optimism, hope and a hint of excitement. Mercury and Jupiter reach their final alignment in star sign of Scorpio, which leads us to gaining insight into a problem, talking through issues, and seeing

Today is a unique day! It’s going to be all about forgiveness and healing. It will be about the “Why” you actually feel out with someone, or insight to any other type of miscommunication in any relationship breakdown. Healing is very possible today yay! Reconciliation is the theme for today as all parties will be able to acknowledge the part they played in a relationship breakdown. Have you been estranged from a family member, a partner or close friend? Today is the day to pick up the phone and say “i want you back in my life”.  This is largely to do with Venus retrograde in Scorpio. Venus being in Scorpio is a highly emotional position for Venus to sit in. Besides being very passionate, intense, and oh so very dark and sensual Venus in Scorpio treasures closeness along with our most valuable relationships are extremely important, actually overwhelming and consuming at times. So if you notice those around you or directly connected to you are having relationship problems this is due to the vulnerability Scorpio feels, the fear of being close or exposing your softer side to others, it’s also stemming from hidden truths and feelings being brought to the surface for healing and transformation. Dint put yourself in an all or nothing” situation if you think healing is available especially until October 31st when Venus enters into a new sign.

With Mercury in Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio and the Sun in Scorpio expect the energy to be intense and passionate, as you seeks truths in all that is hidden and hush-hush. Our communication and thought process especially around the matters of our heart, personal matters and the way we look at our self-will be more probing, deeply emotional and intense. Scorpio is great for self-healing and transformation if you are ready to take a real look at yourself and accept the parts of you that you may not like.  It’s wonderful that we all get an added boost of passion, mystery and strength, just watch out for the less favorable traits as jealously, manipulation and being vindictive.

However, it’s not all so nurturing and happy days… unfortunately we see a clash between Mars and Saturn. This morning expects to feel some tension rising as Mars forms a semi-square with Saturn. With these two masculine energies against each other today you may feel restricted and repressed. Saturn energy is all about learning, structure and mastering your life. Mars is the planet that drives our will and motivation so when they go head to head expect your strong desires to succeed and create to lead to road blocks and complications. Negative emotions such as frustration, jealously, anger and tempers will flare up today especially in regards to authority figures such as your boss, manager or family members. Don’t let yourself be effected by the limiting and rejecting feelings that may arise from the built up influences of Saturn and Mars, let your desire of finishing goals and ripping down restrictions and old beliefs be the drive you need today.  This is not a winning or overly pleasant transit and the best approach now is a not be over defensive but flexible especially if are feeling more resistance, just know everyone around you is being influenced the same so if tempers arise de-escalate the mood quickly even if you know you have not done a thing to feel someone else wrath.

Patience, perseverance and empathy will be your strong points today!

With so much going ion today just take it one person and one step at a time! Happy Monday gang!

 

The Taurus Full Moon illuminates beauty, Love and Sensuality! 2018

 

Happy Full Moon Day! This Full Moon is going to be something else! The Full Moon enters Taurus today. I like most I have felt the energy of this Full Moon build all week. A Full Moon is when the Sun in Scorpio at 1 degrees fully illuminates the Moon, it also conjuncts Retrograde Venus in 4 degrees Scorpio. The Moon also conjuncts Uranus.

The Scorpio Sun at 1 degree wants some sort of emotional experience and Venus in retrograde at 4 degrees tells us that we are entitled and deserve to have an amazing emotional experience. The energy reminds you that “Yes” are meant to explore, experiment, have fun and live a little. It also invites us to dig deep, to seek and experience things you have never experienced before. Perhaps on the naughtier side of life. This week Venus and the Sun are both in a planetary placement that tempt you to try out new things, be adventurous behave in ways you normally wouldn’t.

The Full Moon is when the Sun sits opposite to the Moon at 180 degrees from each other. Full Moons are a time of strengthened intuition, heightened emotions, and you can observe unusual activity happening around you or occurring to other people. I can tell you the Full Moon makes my pets a little loony, and others can report some sleep disturbances!

This Full Moon in Taurus astrological speaking, with the rest of the universe in play is going to be pretty much bag of mixed energies. As I mentioned earlier we are in a Retrograde Venus however we also have Uranus, the planet of sudden change, revolt and the unexpected conjunct the Full Moon!

So my dear friends, ready or not BIG CHANGE is coming for us… The real challenge for us is going to be are we ready to embrace change, all the positive side and traits of Scorpio? Are you ready to go beneath the surface? To really let go of yourself and to feel intensely? Are you ready to allow yourself to transform? We must remember for change to occur we need to release old patterns and habits along with any old attachments. We must let our old identity die so we can embrace whatever change life throws at us. Particularly with all these retrograde about, telling and showing us the old beliefs that needs transforming.

This month’s Moon will be illuminated with Taurus energy that will shine down on us. Taurus energy is all about the real world, stability, structure,  finances, practicality, money, wealth, relationships, enjoying life, food, being grounded in nature, sensuality, physical body and beauty. This Full Moon is going to urge us to do something, to create something wonderful, something physical or birth something new in any of the areas I just mentioned.  This Full Moon is about  putting yourself out there and experience all the sensuality the world has to offer. Uranus the planet of eccentricity is sitting on top of Taurus stirring the pot for unexpected, radical excitement and unexpected change. This along with Venus retrograde will help illuminate you with all those twisted desires and energies that will results in physical manifestations and actions that in no means would you normally act on.

This Full Moon being in the sign of Taurus, will feel comfortable and safe. The Moon likes sitting in this sign, as we know the Moon represents our feelings and inner world. Taurus is about solidity and sensuality in aspects not only physical but in our taste, our touch, or views, using all the senses. Taurus is about if you can sense it and touch it, than it is real. The Moon in Taurus wants us to take a change, get rid of the feelings of old, the feelings that weigh you down and blur your vision of the beauty that is around you. Take all that stagnant, emotional energy and stomp it on the ground. Awaken your senses be alive! This transformational Full Moon combined with the Sun in Scorpio is really guiding us to in touch with our own complexity and how we respond in any relationship.

 

Happy Full Moon week!

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!

New Moon in Gemini 2018.

Wednesday, June 13, 2018.

New Moon in Gemini.

Mercury in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus.

Venus moves out of Cancer and into Leo.

We have a lot going on today starting off this morning we begin with Mercury who is currently sitting in sensitive in Cancer forming a sextile aspect to innovative, unearthing and some would say potentially life-changing Uranus. This exciting aspect will help us to link our mind, thoughts and communication with the planet of rebellion and unexpected twist in very unusual ways. This is a day about radical thinking, “Aha moments” and situations coming to light. With Cancer and Taurus energy involved these heighten awareness will come in the form of security, home, family, love and the past as these signs have deep connections to these areas…This is a great day to find an opportunity to let go of that which we hold onto, especially with a New Moon in the mix. Search around your home, your self and your routines and seek that of which does not serve you anymore, make room for the new. If you can get out in nature today, do so, touch a tree, put your feet in the sand, open yourself to what the Natural World has to teach you. You may be surprised!

The New Moon is at 22° Gemini. The New Moon is a time when we begin a new lunar. A new cycle of emotional and personal growth. Traditionally this is the time to plant seeds of intentions, of change and growth you want to tend over the coming month. Each month we are assisted by the energy of the sign the Moon sits in and this month we have are showered with Gemini energy. Gemini who is ruled by Mercury, energy is all about communication, ideas and expression.

In Gemini, we begin a cycle of understanding and communication. Consider your newest thoughts and ideas. Wait until tomorrow or later tonight to do your New Moon ritual. This gives you all day to contemplating new  ideas, thoughts, learning and ways of expressing yourself. This New Moon focus your intentions and New Moon wishes on working on your communication skills, engaging your mind and creativity, expanding your knowledge, and strengthening your understanding of ourselves and the world around us.Social skills will also be highlighted this New Moon. Get out and about this month, you just may meet someone or have a conversation that leads you one step closer to your dreams and goals. New ways of thinking and learning are another top priority for this New Moon in Gemini.

Venus, the planet of money, love and our deepest values, enters playful , proud and fun-loving Leo. Shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty from yin to yang and from water to fire. We are now moving from a focus on the inside, to a shift to a more outward focus. Venus in Leo means passion, self-love, excitement and playfulness.Venus in Leo loves to have fun! We all require a bit more attention and adoration when Venus in Leo. You will feel best if you go out of your way to give the gift of attention and love to others.You may notice the world looking a little less vulnerable as we leave sensitive Cancer behind and we feel a little brighter. Over the coming weeks of Venus’ transit through Leo it is a great time to get in touch with the your inner child, enjoy life, love and beauty. However Leo is eccentric, overly self focused,  narcissistic and sometimes can be to proud, try not to take this energy on in your relationships, attitude towards others and being overly generous and silly with your money!

Happy New Moon wishing.

Be string and take risks 08/05/2018.

 

Friday, June 8th, 2018.

The Moon is in Aries.

Mercury in Gemini quincunxes retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.

 

You should wake up this morning feeling strongly driven! If like me I was able to  and able to tap into fierce determination and cut procrastination in the butt and get my jobs done. It’s a day for self courage. Find a way to use that intestine positive ” go and get them ” energy before it slips into impatience, agitated and aggressive energy. If you are feeling short-tempered or aggressive, it is best to go for a run, take it out on a punching bag or flirt with the idea of a hot sexual encounter or date. It is a day  to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself.

Mercury in Gemini quincunxes retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. Hmm, there will be some   tension between our  logical mind and thought [process and  the Lord of the Underworld and transformation.Mercury in Gemini prefers things to be light, witty, carefree and social. Pluto, on the other hand, asks us m, well demands us to  go down into the depths our being and find what is bugging us and what needs to be let go and transmuted. This aspect is good for therapy especially if you can find a great friend to talk with, and perhaps over a social dinner or a wine.

Have a great weekend and happy Friday!

Reality Vs Imagination 06/06/18

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018.

Mercury and the Sun in Gemini square Neptune.

The Moon is in Pisces.

Today both Mercury and the Sun in Gemini square Neptune. This will stir up some tense energy and cause friction between our logical mind, our intuition and our awareness of life as a whole. Today clarity will not be as clear as we want it to be, and this clarity we seek wont be so forthcoming over the next few days. With the Sun in chatty Gemini and Mercury in play there is a lot you want to say and logically discus, but Neptune does not support such understanding.Watch as confusion and lack of clarity may be expressed in conversations all around you. Today it would probably be best to wait before speaking your mind especially in regards to sensitive issues. That means don’t rush into anything that involves trying to explain yourself or your position.

On a positive note today, expect the most unexpected and interesting conversations and ideas. With the Moon still in Pisces, its dreamy energy joins along with and Neptune energy to support your dreams, mysticism and intuition. It’s a good day to focus inwards, meditate and connect with your higher self, work on your spirituality and creativity.

 

Happy Hump Day!
