There is Work to be Done! 24/07/2018.

Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

Venus in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces.

The Moon enters Capricorn.

The emotional environment is calm and uneventful for most of Tuesday with the Moon  in Sagittarius for most of the morning. We do get a reality check when the Moon enters Capricorn later today. Responsibilities and work commits become clearer today as you get back into routine and structure. Capricorn is all hard work in order to develop integrity and mastery in all parts of your life. Use this energy to get those important tasks done, to get your head in order and make a plan! No more getting lost or caught up in Sagittarius whimsy, adventurous and escapism ways.

Venus in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces. This will cause some tension as the both planets energy are at an opposition with each other. Tension when it comes to romantic matters and our deepest wants and needs or lack of are exacerbated today, some will be in denial looking at love or current relationships through rose-coloured glasses. Don’t jump to any conclusions or make any decisions as it is unlikely that you have all the information necessary to do so. Venus and Neptune normally can be lovely for creativity, romance, compassion and self-less service. but at an opposition with each other concerns in our relationships and finances will be playing on our mind. The key for today is to find balance, compassion and understanding whilst using your discernment and being honest.

 

Have a great day!

Full Moon in Capricorn 28/06/2018.

Full Moon in Capricorn.

Thursday, June 28, 2018.

Happy Full Moon Day!The Capricorn Full Moon is at 6 degrees. 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 when the Moon recharges its batteries. We also experience a burst of strong energy as the Moon is highlight with the Suns energy and that is why people here on earth can act strange or loony during a Full Moon. The Sun is at 6 degree of Cancer, the Sun is our ego and in Cancer its your emotional and spiritual side shinning through, you are creative, artistic and nurturing in this sign. This Cancer energy that shines all its light onto the Moon which will be at 6 degrees of Capricorn. This Cancer-Capricorn polarity that we will experience this month asks us to find balance between our public and work life and our home and private life! As the Sun shines on the Moon, the Moon than receives its energy and we are left with the feeling of responsibility and duty this month. You may ask yourself  questions this Full Moon such as.. “How can I love myself more and take care of my self” as well as asking yourself how can I be of service and take care of others” or  “how i can i show my love and caring side to other people”. The Moon being in Capricorn will give us the practical, logical way to solving these questions, as well as loads of ideas on how to be more nurturing and caring for others! As Capricorn is all about strong work ethics these manifestations and ideas will be incorporated and expressed by you in your work.

Saturn, the structured, organised planet of lessons and Karma is at 5 degrees Capricorn. Saturn is the Ruling planet of Capricorn and its the planet that makes us build a solid, reliable and strong foundation for yourself to build your life on. When it’s in Capricorn it gives us a cosmic nudge in the right direction. It allows us to focus on our goals and gives us the ability to look at the end results and not so much the short-term journey. Life is serious business today, and these energies will find a way to bring your awareness to that fact. This may not a bad thing.  You have important goals to set and things to accomplish and its wise to remember that your life also has consequences.

Today is all about looking to the future and building a strong foundation or platform to work off. With Saturn and the Capricorn Moon, any ideas or goals you have will be cemented.  It’s very important to make a list or make yourself very aware of your goals, especially those goals that involve helping or caring for others. If you have always wanted a career that helps others this is the time to begin that journey, are you unemployed? Volunteer at the local community center or nursing home.

Today use this Full Moon energy to contemplate the significance of your life and make necessary adjustments to move you in the direction that you need to go.This means letting go of old emotions, people, energies, belief systems and ways of thinking. There are times in life when we should dream, a time to be silly and play and unfortunately today is not a day for fun and games! Remember, if you feel stuck or lost, one simple step can start you off on a new direction.

Mercury moves out of Cancer and into Leo. This is a big shift as our mind and intellect moves from  being sensitive to being playful, from water to fire, we see a shift from inward thinking to a more of an external focus.Our thinking is more confident and our communication is gran. We are creative in our expressions and have fun during the process of it all. When Mercury is in Leo, the energy is great for thinking creatively and even better for self-expression. We tend to be overly dramatic and we pursue the lime light and center stage! However, we can be over self-assured and we must  just watch out for coming across as narcissistic and be open to other’s perspectives.

 

Happy Full Moon day.

The Moon enters Capricorn.

The Moon in Capricorn forms a harmonizes trine with Uranus  and aligns with Saturn.

Today brings us back to earth and sets you on solid and ambitious ground. By the time you wake up on this morning, the Moon has left behind the adventurous and non committing Sagittarius and has entered authoritative, grounded and hard-working Capricorn and today you are ready to get stuck in and tackle your most realistic goals once again. If you, like myself and many others have felt the effect of this powerful Full Moon, then Capricorn is the sign to bring us back down to reality. We can pull our self back together and get our minds, bodies and soul back on tract!

The Moon in Capricorn forms a harmonizes trine with Uranus  and aligns with Saturn by evening. Today be prepared to find excitement and view your circumstances or projects from an unusual perspective. Its a day to revisit our priorities, decisions and to tackle serious problems.  Expect the unexpected in all areas of our life…. How exciting.

By this afternoon the authoritative Capricorn Moon joins with serious Saturn.Our attention will focus on your responsibility, you may find yourself in deep conversations or arguments with your family or matters to do with your home life. Regardless of the infractions, disagreements or hard edges you may feel it’s really important to practice compassion and kindness. Try to have an understanding of where others may come from in all family matters, especially before you start making disciplinary actions. Sometimes in life we need to have those awkward difficult conversations with those we love but if you have an open mind and heart all will resolve for the best higher good!

 

Happy Thursday!

Time to get Realistic 04/5/2018.

Friday, May 4th, 2018.

The Moon enters Capricorn.

The Moon enters Capricorn and remains there all day. Today will hum along perfectly fine as long as we keep our mind on the long-term prize and our focus remains on our more serious ambitions and responsibilities.Capricorn is about integrity, commitment and maturity. Capricorn is a straight forward, and no silly business sign, so this is not a day for frivolousness. The Moon remains with us through this determined, dedicated and levelheaded sign all day today and Saturday.

A Spring clean is in order this weekend. This includes home, the shed, documents, the car, the office and if you are like me the laundry room and my handbag need some serious organisation and TLC.  If you are in the southern hemisphere its a great time to de- clutter, put away the summer clothes and get those snugly blankets out ready for the colder nights.

Priorities will shift and our sense of responsibility is stronger than usual. We are realistic and we will crave more structure and order in our lives. Capricorn isn’t much for engaging in mushy romance or playful fun, unless everything that needs to be done has been completed.

 

Happy Friday!

Hope you have an amazing weekend.

Dream Big! 22/11/17.

Wednesday November 22nd. 

 Neptune stations direct at 11’27 Pisces. 

The Moon is in Capricorn.

When you wake up today you may notice that you had some imaginative and vivid dreams. As Neptune is making a significant appearance today, and that makes this planet of mysticism, dreaming and illusion the most powerful planet in the sky.

Neptune stations  direct at 11° Pisces. Neptune is the water planet that represents our dreams, intuition, creativity, spirituality, unconditional love and mysticism and with it turning direct (as Neptune has been moving retrograde since mid-June) it’s like we are back to business. We regain a sense of hope for our dreams and our future. We get that sense back that we can make things happen for our self once again. Since Neptune turned retrograde back in June, it has really pushed us to ask our self as well as reevaluate an important dream that we have had, or an artistic venture, or our spiritual path. What big dream have you been holding onto since then? If you don’t know, allow your intuition to guide you. For a big clue to what area of your life is being activated in this way, consider where Pisces falls in your chart? For me it’s in my 6th house! The veil between the worlds is thin when Neptune stations and the key to using this energy is in meditation, journaling, reflection and introspection. 

However, now that Neptune station today, the shadow side is that some may have a hard time focusing, as we can get lost in day dreaming and find it difficult to focus long enough really tackle a task. Neptune energy also reflects and can presented in the form of delusion, denial, avoidance of reality, playing the victim and refusing to see the other side of the story.

It is a time to confront any emotions, addictions, repetitive patterns that don’t serve a purpose to your higher self and its especially not a great time to make definitive decisions as it’s not quite clear which way is up and which way is down with all this dreamy water energy floating around.  

This is now a time to illuminate your dreams, seek inspiration from the world around you to get creative. You will have the motivation to work towards a better future, one where you see yourself happy. Yay!

The Moon is still in grounded Capricorn. We will want to keep our expectations realistic under the influence and although sometimes pessimistic. The Capricorn Moon will form a challenging aspect to transformative and also, destructive Pluto. This means today especially when interacting with others watch out for power struggles as we may have tendencies to engage in coercive power dynamics with others. Stop, count to three in your head and speak from a place of integrity and responsibility for our own words and actions.  

I over head this “saying” or “prayer” toady and thought it quite fitting…

Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.  

Today is about the things you accept and the things you can and cannot change!Tap into Neptune’s energy and find the wisdom.

Happy Hump Day!

We Seek a Higher Knowing! 21/11/2017.

 

Tuesday, November 21, 2017.

The Sun enters Sagittarius.

The Moon enters Capricorn.

Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.

The big news today comes when the Sun, following her haul through the deep, mysterious and passionate waters of Scorpio, now enters fun-loving, adventurous  Sagittarius! Shifting the conscious self and our ego from water to fire, introspection to outer focus, from emotional to explorative. Over the coming month, we have an inner calling to be spontaneous, to reach out to understand and see the bigger picture, we want to explore and to see the perspective of others.

The emotional environment of today day turns a little more serious as the Moon enters hard-working and realistic Capricorn. When the Moon is in Capricorn we shift to more of a grounded practical energy. Hard work and facts become a priority today no time for funny business!!

Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. This cycle which begun back in November 2016, think back to this time? What profoundly transforming shifts in regards to love relationships, personal values, deeper levels of intimacy and truth have been realized and explored? When the planet of beauty and love aligns and joins forces with the planet of transformation, their energies are exacerbated, this energy equals passion, intensity, depth and abundance! Since November 2016,  the cycle between Venus and Pluto has proceeded forward as the energy between these two grew, it came to full fruition in August of this year and now we come to a closing sextile aspect between them.

A new cycle between these powerful forces will be activated in early January of 2018, offering us an opportunity to activity plan for the new cycle! What new level of love relationships do you want to reach? Where do you plan to create more beauty and love in your life? What values or morals do you want to strengthen what do you want to ultimately transform your future? Begin now to plan for the future you dream of. This sextile also empowers and extends the cycle between Jupiter and Venus that began last week.

However it is important to remember that not only does Venus/Pluto astrologicaly speaking, is great  for deepening into intimacy with your self and others, it can also have a darker side… so please be mindful and watch out for jealously,  possessiveness,  and the desire to be in control or ultimately give away your power in Love and money situations.

 We are still in the Scorpio New Moon phase!! There is still time to make your manifestation wish list if you haven’t already done so.

Happy Tuesday!

The spotlight is on luck today! 26/10/17

Thursday, October 26th, 2017.

The Moon is in Capricorn.

The Sun in Scorpio forms its annual conjunction to Jupiter in Scorpio.

As you wake up today your confidence grows as the Sun joins with wise, expansive  Jupiter. This marks the beginning of a one year cycle of abundance. This cycle  well also expand our awareness through idealism, Aha moments and understanding the complicated and confusing. Scorpio is a powerful transformational sign and now with Jupiter in the Scorpio mix expect it all to be amplified!

As I mentioned yesterday, pay attention to what is arising right now for you, is it self work, work life, finding your purpose, healing from past trauma and hurts, finding a balance in your daily life, has a particular person popped up in your head that may need forgiving for the sake of your sanity? As it is the Universe is trying to give you clear messages about the growth and expansion coming into your life. This is  due to Jupiter’s journey through sassy Scorpio! This time of Jupiter in Scorpio is a great time of self discovery, we can be especially aware of our desires, especially our emotional desires. We will figure out what we want and what we are happy to settle for. Your confidence will  grow with the Sun joining with wise Jupiter! It’s a time to renew yourself, excel in your emotional realms, explore our sexual self, be more generous with yourself and build confidence!

However the Capricorn Moon’s relationships with the other planets may not be as friendly as yesterday. Capricorn energy is mature and authoritative! That means our focus and concerns are with plans, rules, hard work, structure and performance. This energy can push us to far as we can struggle with internal and external power issues and power dynamics.

Happy Thursday!

Pluto stations Direct. 28/09/2017.

The First Quarter Moon in Capricorn.

Pluto stations Direct.

Today we reach the First Quarter Moon in serious, grounded Capricorn. This is the mid pint between the New Moon and the up coming Full Moon. Today try to think back or reflect on what seed you planted back in September at the New Moon?As the energy of the Full Moon is building up this is the perfect time to take action and try to move forward on those intentions.

Pluto, the planet of death , re birth and transformation turns direct at 16 degrees Capricorn. Pluto has been in retrograde for a very long time, actually since April this year.. Upon reflection, of those things you have wanted to heal and change, some area of deep inner contemplation is now complete. Now you will want to make those change, you are ready to stand in the light of your own power. When Pluto is in grounded Capricorn, our desire to work increases, changes you have been complementing now seem ready to work on. Changes will come more naturally, in any and all areas of your world such as work, relationships, friendships and self work. Naturally the world around you will start matching your inside. If you take a look at your chart and you have 16 degrees Capricorn anywhere, or matching those numbers, then you can expect to see your feathers ruffled, some re organizing and shuffling around your work life, business or profession.

 

Happy Thursday!

Work hard play hard! 27/09/2017

Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aires.

The Moon moves into Capricorn.

Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aires. Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus today ,is an aspect that first formed early in December and then again in March and today they are now exact for the final time in this set. Jupiter is the planet of luck and abundance and when it’s in Libra its all about relationships and harmony. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, its eccentric. It’s the planet of ” I want it my way” , it’s very energetic and especially in Aires where it is all about “i want it my way, or its the highway”. With all this change going on, today would be the ideal day to use your communication abilities, charm and quirkiness in all your relationships today, business, pleasure, work, partner, family and friends!

Today begins with the independent sassy Sagittarius Moon forming lovely aspects to both optimistic Jupiter and eccentric Uranus. This suggests our morning could give us some unexpected pleasures, reactions and perhaps unusual surprises. If things are getting to weird or out of hand for you today just keep a low profile and try to enjoy whatever the morning brings.

The Moon this afternoon than moves in Capricorn, where we become much more grounded and focused on responsibilities. Capricorn philosophy is, if you want to get to the top you have to work hard at it. They charge on, even if there is obstacles or fears popping up. It is a great energy to tap into, if you need direction and sternness to tackle a problem or situation. Work hard play hard!. Your attention will turn toward the more practical, serious and realistic side of life, unlike Sagittarius who is about the joyful adventure and focus on the necessary steps you need to take at this time of your life.

 

Have a great day.

Power struggles, as Jupiter Squares Pluto. 04/08/2017

Friday, August 4, 2017.

The Moon is in Capricorn.

 Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon is in mature Capricorn. The Capricorn Moon does its best to keep  a level head and reasoning on the table but it will be a challenge. Do your best today to maintain some balance and maturity without letting the darker traits of Capricorn surface like pessimism and over ambitiousness. Maintain your integrity!!! Power struggles can get exacerbated right now, especially with this Jupiter/ Pluto square. Today instead, focus on standing centered in your own power and space and have others meet you half way.

Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. This is the final in a set of three squares between Jupiter and Pluto that begun in November 2016. We might throw ourselves into working on resolutions or finding harmonious  answers.

The positive aspect of this square is that it has the ability to stimulate our inner ambitions.The energy fuels us up to set our goals high,high enough that we can achieve anything. This square basically stirs up and creates friction and tension between the planet of transformation and healing, and the planet of expansion! We now see our desire to transform and evolve and realize its not that far to grasp.

However, this Jupiter-Pluto square also stimulates a part in us that may be overreaching. We may take on too many interests, activities, change and desires under this planetary influence. We can place too much pressure and importance on what we want to achieve ignoring our energy and our limits burning the candle at both ends.

The key to managing the energies is to ease up on the pressure we place on ourselves and others, and not to stir up others with our strong point of view and stand point. As we can find the urge to exaggerate our importance or power we hold, either to ourselves or others.

 

Happy Friday!

Have a good weekend.
