Wake Up Sleepy Head! 14/12/18

Friday, December 14th, 2018.

The Moon is in Pisces.

Venus in Scorpio semisextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius.

As we awake this morning, the Moon is in dreamy Pisces, making it a little harder to get out of bed and  a bit less productive than you normally could be, not the best news for your boss. The Moon spends most of the day in Pisces so we can expect to be more creative, intuitive and sensitive. Day dream big today, have a nap if you find time or go and have some “You” time to recharge yourself from all the busyness of life. Pisces Moon day’s however are not so good for anything mentally or physical, oh and watch out for being overly sensitive and moody, no one likes arguments or drama at this joyful time of year.

On a more uplifting note, Venus in Scorpio semisextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius. Bringing together the planet of luck and abundance with the plant of beauty and love. With these two powerful planets aligning, it means there is great potential to have a great day. A day to get out and socialize, take your partner on a date, catch up with friends. If the energy of the Pisces Moon hasn’t made you susceptible to sleepiness and needing some separation from others, go out and  have some fun, get into the festivities of Christmas and enjoy life today.

Happy Friday!

New Moon in Sagittarius

New Moon in Sagittarius 2018.

Last week we had a New Moon on Friday, December 7th, in the sign of Sagittarius.

The Sun and Moon conjunct each at 15 degrees and 7 minutes, which created the darkness of the New Moon. This New Moon occurs in the flamboyant sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is represented by the Centaur. This New Moon will be not only recharging but pulling in the traits of Sagittarius! The energy is that of the Archer, the optimistic, eager to learn, to explore, is enthusiastic, honest, independent and adventurous. This New Moon is in the fiery, mutable adventurous Sagittarius, and we all know Sagittarius love fresh starts and new beginning. It is a time to align yourself with the New Moon energy, to feel whats energy is being pulled in by the Moon and in this case, its optimistic, fun-loving, happy, adventurous, philosophical and helpful energy of Sagittarius.

It’s a New Moon, so pull it in energy, channel it, meditate on it, journal it and it will give you ideas, dreams for the future. It is the light at the end of tunnel we have been waiting for. We have the chance to make our dreams become reality in the most positive way.

Over the next few days under this fire sign influence. It will give us a cosmic push and  sparks up the fire within you. Its going to give you energy to explore! The motto is, if you can feel it, want it you can have it.

This month it is wise to focus and incorporate these energies and qualities when making your New Moon intentions. The Sadge centaur is rare, and is one of hope. The Centaur, has the bottom half of a horse. His top half is man ( Human). He is ready to shoot his bow and arrow to get to a goal or reach its desired destination. This symbol of the Centaur represents momentum, transcending our animistic natures, giving us the strength, freedom and speed to gallop to our goals.

Unlike a the full moon which focus on  purging old ways, a New Moon is optimistic, a magical time for planning and seeding your intentions. It’s a time of  birthing new ideas, dreams and planting seeds of intention you want to bring into your life over the next few months.  It is an opportune time to attract your heartfelt, wholehearted longings by doing a New Moon ritual focused on manifestation and birth.

Sagittarius is all about adventures, learning , explore and visionaries. So when making your new moon wishes here are some great ideas to incorporate into your manifestation goals. Perhaps its time to plan your next epic vacation. Make a dream board on what places you want to see over this Christmas break,. Sadge love to explore the unknown and different cultures. Go camping, book a last-minute flight, start a holiday or education savings fund. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, where in the world is calling at you?

Sagittarius as we know are very intrigued in regards to learning, teaching and expanding their horizon. This month, makes it a personal mission to seek wisdom in unusual places. Maybe your new-found excitement for travel or a  higher understanding of the world especially ones that can take you to places that connect you with new cultures and new profound philosophies. Suspend your judgment or criticism and take it all in. Be the light you want to see in others.  Better yet, be your own guru.

This New moon gives us the courage to expand our horizons, and gain confidence and optimism from a broader perspective.It also provides us with power to focus on goals that will increase our understanding and awareness.

 

Happy New Moon Manifesting!

Temper Tantrums 19/11/2018.

Monday November 19th, 2018.

 Mars in Pisces squares Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Mars in Pisces squares Jupiter in Sagittarius! This square aspect between the planet that represents our drive and ego and the planet of abundance and luck is going to stir up some tension today. As Mars who represents our inner drive, attitude and will power clashes with our optimism, ego and expansion, watch out for being triggered, agitated and riled up easily today! These two energies combining means we have tendencies to overdo, over react and become very restless. The energy can go from 0 – 100 in an instant and quick tempers and fast tongue never ends up serving us well. With  Mars squaring Jupiter today, we may be competitive, protective, excitable, overactive or hyper responsive to any given situation today. If you feel yourself getting agitated or annoyed easily take a breath and walk away, it is not worth creating tension today

This energy however is good for action, enthusiasm and initiation. Need an extra boost at work? A Home? Use the energy wisely to be task orientated and focused. Nonetheless, there is a fine line between firmly chasing your dreams and, not taking down and destroying those in your way for selfish reasons. It’s especially not OK to criticize those who feel and think differently to you today dear ones!

Today remember to..

  • Think before you speak.
  • Don’t over do or over spend.
  • Watch out for becoming reactive, restless and impulsive.
  • Mind your temper.
  • Try to focus less on what we ” think ” we need to be doing and making sure we don’t lose sight of what is possible.

Big News,Venus stations Direct however Mercury turns Retrograde! 16/11/2018.

Pulling at your Heart and your Mind

Friday, November 16th, 2018.

Early this morning, Venus the planet of love and beauty turns direct in the sign of Libra.  Making the planet of love and beauty one of two of the most influential planets in our sky today.  Since early October our love, relationships, finances as well as our ability to turn inwards has been out of whack and under a microscope, as well as our ability to understand our most personal values which has also been under a microscope. Over the coming weeks as Venus stations direct you will be able to make the necessary changes to improve these areas of your life. Now, as we move forward you can breathe a sigh of relief. Being in its home sign of Libra expect your diplomacy in love and relationships to return as your seek out a balanced and harmonious atmosphere. Gradually over the next few weeks expect your relationships and finances to move forward more easily. Clarity and confidence will emerge again in our social and love life. As Venus returns from her journey in the deep shadows, you along with many others have been facing your shadows and fears around love, self – love, money and your own self-worth and values. I hope during Venus retrograde you had time to reflect and focus on yourself and your own need’s or perhaps you had a chance to heal and reflect on your part in any dramas of your love lives and financial situations. Consider what you have learned since early October and you should be able to understand the adjustments that my be needed.

All good news aside, unfortunately the universe likes to have that silver lining…Mercury stations retrograde at 13’29 Sagittarius.  Bringing the planet of communication and thinking into focus..This is the cosmic joke for today, Mercury goes retrograde on the same day that Venus turns direct. Today marks the beginning of its retrograde cycle in Sagittarius before it returns to the sign of Scorpio on December 1st. Mercury retrograde will remain until December 6th. Mercury rules over our thought process, the mental realm and communication. Now as Mercury energy is turning backwards except to hit a few bumps along the road especially in regards to technology, thinking, travel and our communication with not only others but internally! Mercury retrograde is a time to rethink, review and revise the past. Mercury retrograde is not a time to begin new projects, or be tempted to start new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs if possible! This also includes avoiding signing new contracts or leases. Instead its a time of contemplation, review and  its especially a great time to catch up on tasks and projects that have been left undone. Don’t be afraid of  Mercury retrograde its a great time to tie up loose ends, for healing and finally putting to rest issues that keep arising. Get a notebook and a pen, every time you think of a new idea or if a new creative project comes to mind make a list so you can begin them once Mercury retrograde is over! Even better write a list of everything that you have begun over the past few months but have not completed start working on getting them accomplished.

Have a great Friday!

Feeling Detached? 13/11/2018.

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

The Sun in Scorpio is moving towards a semi-square to Saturn in Capricorn.

The Moon moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius.

As you wake up today, the morning energy building may leave you feeling anxious and stressed! As the Sun in Scorpio is moving towards a semi-square to Saturn in Capricorn! As this building tension and friction is arising between our conscious self and the lord of karma and master teacher we will be faced with conflicting and harsher energies!Responsibility along with frustrations and limitations will arise today leaving us feeling unsettled. The key for today is to breath and mindful! This is not a day to be controlling however it is a day to control your own reactions and responses so that you are able to answer reasonably rather than react in situations you face.

The Moon moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius. Meaning we will start to detach from society, old patterns of thinking and feeling and what people call the “Norm”. Break out of your normal routines and unhealthy patterns that hold you back. Engage with the unusual or misunderstood today, as it will help you to open up surprise conversations and activities. Use the influence of this objective Aquarius Moon to break free of bad habits and old toxic ways of thinking and being. Today try to be more rebellious and spontaneous.. To a degree!

Monday 12th November 2018.

The Moon is in Capricorn .

The Moon then forms a square to Venus in Libra.

Good Morning and happy Monday. Today the Moon is in Capricorn. When the Moon is in Capricorn we are very much self motivated to achieve our dreams.The realization that we have to work hard to reach these goals is very present in our thoughts today and we take leadership. Structure and organisation will be high priority today especially in regards to work, career and our reputation! Nothing comes for free in life and therefore you have to set a goal, and work hard to achieve that goal.

The Moon then forms a square to Venus in Libra. Venus being in its home sign of Libra is all about love, relationships, harmony and beauty. However Venus is currently in retrograde and this means all these areas are a little twisted and backwards at the moment. You may find that old past lovers and old friends are reappearing on the scene. Perhaps your current relationships are twisted or being tested at the moment and that you maybe reevaluating your values or reacquainted with something or someone of value. During this retrograde its important is a time to reconnect with our inner self and find out what’s important to us. Lucky for us with The Moon in Capricorn , our inner focus can pay more attention to the details of our relationships and therefore make them work!

Have a great Monday!

New Moon in Scorpio 2018!

Happy New Moon Day!

A New Moon in Scorpio November 7th, 2018.

As we wake up today we will be entering the darkest point of the Lunar Phase a New Moon. This New Moon in Scorpio is sitting with Jupiter, mere hours before the planet leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius which won’t happen again is for over a decade. Traditionally a New Moon is when the Sun and Moon join together. They both will be sitting on each other in 15 degrees Scorpio. A New Moon in our sky looks completely dark, it’s black & the Moon is making herself invisible as the Sun’s rays overtake, she is taking a meditation break and recharging. This month the Moon is recharging itself for the next Luna cycle in the sassy sign of Scorpio. This time of the Luna cycle is all about stopping focusing inward and pulling the energy in and revaluation where yin your life needs changing and working about making a list of changes or intentions you want to plant for the next month. What is it you want to do or achieve this next Luna cycle? Every New Moon gives us a chance to make some life changing decisions each month so use this New Moons energy wisely.

Scorpio is water sign and it’s the sign of the zodiac that dives deepest. Scorpio is associated with intense emotional connections and emotional truth. Diving deep into the emotions of others and along with themselves being a detective and getting down to the nitty-gritty. Scorpio is connected with darker side of life such as all things taboo, secrets, sexuality and the a cult. Scorpio is about transformation, healing and rising out of the ashes and working on a higher self-awareness. Scorpio highlights the importance of bringing what is hidden into the light, to be excavated, and to be brought forth for healing.
With the New Moon in Scorpio, the seeds of intentions you plant will be ones of deep emotional significance. You must be willing to look deeper than usual and take an emotional risk. Scorpio energy invites us to open up and be enlightened by emotional experiences as we also gain a stronger emotional intelligence.

This New Moon in Scorpio will pointing us in a new direction and beginning of powerful changes. It’s going to help us purge old ways of being, feeling, thinking, addictions, old emotional wounds, and burdens and we will seek out new and meaningful enriching feelings and ways of thinking.

For this Scorpio New Moon, set your monthly manifestations around the Scorpio energy. Include intentions to manifest emotional transformation, passion perhaps taking on a new lover or deepening a passionate connection with a current lover, deep introspection and expanding your creativity. Create opportunities for yourself this month either to make yourself happy or someone else be connecting the dots on what motivates, irritates and drives either you or them. Start planting powerful seed by starting a journal or using a New Moon ritual this month to work deeply on self-reflection or perhaps your own hidden secrets.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds or sits in 15° Scorpio, it will give you a greater insight into which area of your life will be most influenced or effected this New Moon. If you don’t know what house is involved with Scorpio energy, just take a moment focus on your breath work, intuition and meditate on the answer,! If you have Scorpio in your chart see which house it is in for example if it is in your 4th house, which represents our home, laying roots and family life, set an intention to transform and intensity anything you want to change in regards to your home/ family. By doing this it will help you become more aware or clarify where any issue are or areas that need to be changed and transformed.

This New Moon forms a harmonious connection with Neptune and Pluto! Making it a very powerful, healing, spiritual and extremely intuitive New Moon. Nevertheless we also see Jupiter and Uranus move towards a quincunx. Jupiter is at the end of its cycle in Scorpio but it manages a couple of hours before it moves into Sagittarius. With saying that, we need to be careful and oversee how much we act on our impulses, our energy is chaotic and we may feel rushed into making decisions and with Uranus energy into the mix you can expect the unexpected, expect a spanner in the works or a sudden change in your direction. Perhaps it’s not the best day to make profound decisions until you know or are clear on what you really want. It’s a day for contemplation and review. Jupiter grows, expands and is the Midas touch, making anything it touches abundant, while its transit through Scorpio over the past 12 months, Jupiter has tried to teach us how to shed old skins and beliefs so that we might get closer to our own sources of power. Where our intention goes energy flows!

New Moon ritual.

Later tonight or anytime on Thursday, set some time aside and plan or perform your New Moon ritual. Keep it simple but hold sacred place within yourself to honor this magical ritual. Click here if you need help performing one  How to create a New Moon ritual. 

If you are short of time or the process is to overwhelming take a moment to write down what changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the coming month and potentially up to the next 6 months.

Happy New Moon Day!

Attention to Detail 02/11/18.

Friday, November 2, 2018.

Venus in Libra sesquiquadrates retrograde Neptune in Pisces.

The Moon enters Virgo.

Retrograde Venus in Libra semisquares Jupiter in Scorpio.

When you awake up this morning you will find yourself in a very different emotional environment. Retrograde Venus in Libra sesquiquadrates retrograde Neptune in Pisces. This may spark some friction and tension between our higher and our lower  heart. This is due to the fact that both  Libra and Pisces gravitate towards focusing on others and are very self-sacrificing when it comes to love.So the lesson we should take from this is… being able to put healthy boundaries when it comes to any relationship. There is no martyr or victim to be played out today! You will be able to pin point more clearly where you may need to forgive or retreat and where you may be in denial with the Moon entering into organised and diligent Virgo today.

As the Moon enters into this  productive and the precise sign of Virgo prepare for a weekend that involves a practical and very organised approach. Spend today creating constructive plans for the upcoming weekend, plan to have your grocery shopping, laundry and  house cleaning done early so you make the most of the weekend ahead.  Also remember the shadow side of Virgo, and don’t allow perfectionism and criticism to stop your progress. With spring here in Australia what a better time to work on projects especially health issues that you will benefit from coming into summer, this also includes doing a big spring clean and donating your items to charity! Virgo is all about service to others after all!

Retrograde Venus in Libra semisquares Jupiter in Scorpio. Another position that may cause friction between the two parts of you that just want to have fun and enjoy life. Venus along with Jupiter both crave and enjoy being social and having fun but they can both tend to overdo it, especially overspend, overshare and overeat, balance is key for this weekend!

Have a great weekend!

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!

 

Today is a BIG DEAL!! A LUNAR ECLIPSE 27/7/18

Friday, July 27, 2018

Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius.

Full Moon blessings, everyone. Today brings us to the big deal a Lunar Eclipse big deal. Today is the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius. A Lunar Eclipse always occurs on a Full Moon and is basically an amped-up magnified Full Moon on steroids. This eclipse is extra potent astronomically as it’s the longest total lunar eclipse in the 21st century, how exciting. This Full Moon is known as a Blood Moon and its energy is steering us in a direction of change and progress.

A Full Moon is where the Sun and Moon are sitting at 180 degrees from each other. The Moon is completely illuminated and thus showers us with its Luna energy here on earth. Traditionally a Full Moon is a completion point of the lunar cycle and is when the Moon recharges its batteries. We also experience a burst of strong energy as the Moon is highlighted with the Suns energy and that is why people here on earth can act strange or loony during a Full Moon.a Total Lunar Eclipse, is when  the Earth passes between the Sun & the Moon, the Earth with block the Suns rays from FULLY reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is fully cast within Earth’s shadow.

The Total Lunar Eclipse at 4’44 Aquarius is right smack on aggressive and sharp Mars retrograde on the karmic south node and comes in close contact to rebellious Uranus. These are very volatile energies coming into play. This also means for us we have some MAJOR  intensification of the karmic energies we are working with or through. I wont lie these next few days has the potential to cause emotional distress and detachment as Aquarius energy offers perspective and even indifference or distance if necessary.The difficulties deep rooted in this eclipse may unfold in our personal circumstances or you may watch it unfold in the outer world. Pay attention!

We also have Mars at closest alignment with Earth from July 27th-31st. He will appear to us  the brightest he has been since 2003 and a fun fact Mars will outshine Jupiter by 1.8 times.

Mars Retrograde is going to be a time when many of us are faced with shadow work. It’s main focus and a chance for us to change will be transforming our relationship, within and without of us. Unfortunately these shadow aspects are going to bring up certain dynamics around our ego, anger, jealously, aggression and rage in our personal relationships, but it does give us a chance to bring any underlying issues to light for transformation and change. Watch your temper and the urge to snap at those you love. Remember that trying to be all things to all people vs having real relationships is about finding a balance without giving to much away or alternatively taking to much for others. Aquarius luna energy means we will be more independent and creative whilst seeking change and being service to others.

As I mentioned this eclipse forms a square to Uranus, and Uranus loves to present us with the most unexpected plot twist! Today can be a sense of surprise, shock, or frustration as we get answers or revolutions into the emotions we’re confronted now with the eclipse.This Full Moon eclipse detach from others and your own mind and let go.

Look for the area or house in your chart that holds 4° Aquarius. This will highlight and indicates the area of life that requires a great deal of attention over the coming months. Remember this Eclipse energy can be felt for months after the event has happened. A new story or a change in the story in this area of life will develop from what occurs now. So pay attention.

This Full Moon the energy is steering us in a direction of change and progress. keep your eyes open as you give of yourself to help others. Helping others is the best way to care for yourself. Release what no longer works for you or is holding you down! Breath and let go, try to enjoy this eclipse it truly is a turning point.

Happy full moon day.
