Are you suffering symptoms of Mercury Retrograde?

Yes , we are in a Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde is great at helping bring to our attention those shadow parts of us, parts we may of felt that didn’t need healing. Mercury retrograde is great at highlighting where the healing lies and the truth can be found. In Mercury Retrograde communication, travel, technology, equipment, travel and contracts can be upside down, backwards, misinterpreted, breakdowns and unnecessary disagreements occur.

At work, you can find yourself frustrated even though you’re sure that you’ve explained yourself clearly, people around you do the opposite and your fail-proof computer crashes. You experience equipment and mechanical breakdowns of all types even at home, when out and your car!

Mercury does rule the mind, mental clarity, talking, self-expression so all these over this period can become  unreliable, filled with misinformation where important data is missing or misunderstood. During this period we should watch for too hasty communications as Mercury rules our communications and thought process and well in Aires we can become very direct ,assertive and self-centered. Say what must be said but try to remember to do so with kindness and compassion.

Mercury Retrograde in Aires gives us the courage to take action on something you have struggled with over the past few weeks. What curve balls have you been dealing with over the past month? What repetitive issues seem to be surfacing? Career, a friendship, your living circumstance, a draining relationship?

If you  have found yourself or parts of yourself being exposed, and in order to work on yourself you are stressed you must remember that you also need to love yourself unconditionally. When there is a lot going on give yourself some space, as much as the mind wants order, you will find when too much is going on we get agitated and stressed. When there is times of stress you must remember you are feeling a lot of things, so give yourself some space. Give yourself permission to experience those emotions instead of categorising it, organising it. Just let what needs to be revealed,happen. In these topsy upside and can be dark days of stress and frustration use your energy and see the small joys and blessing in your day. Even though you may be suffering and want to go on strike, see the small happy moments in the day and the lesson in the bad situations! Don’t stuff your feelings away,

The discomfort  and madness we are going through and experience on any level in Mercury Retrograde or not there is a choice to choose love and happiness! You can love someone and be mad, you can be frustrated but still caring, go with the flow, be present to everything that’s going on during this period, and don’t disqualify it because there is discomfort!! It often takes deep courage to admit to your mistakes and it is likely that is a necessary part of the conversation you must have. We all make mistakes, take responsibility and move forward with determination and love.

Things heat up ! 20/10/17

Friday, October 20, 2017.

The Moon entered Scorpio.

The Moon in Scorpio conjunts Jupiter in Scorpio and Mercury in Scorpio.

As the Moon begins her trek through mysterious Scorpio, you can feel the intensity in the air rise! When the Moon is in Scorpio the energy is passionate, deeply intimate and things will be felt on a deep personal level today! Feeling stuck anywhere in your life? Well good news Scorpio is great at uncover the hidden, we are great at reading between the lines and getting to the bottom of things. Today most of the day is quiet in regards to the cosmos, so what a perfect day to get personal.

The Moon in Scorpio conjunts Jupiter in Scorpio. Not only do we have Scorpio energy playing on our emotions and mood (The Moon) we have the planet of expansion and abundance ( Jupiter) in Scorpio, so feelings and emotions will become very strong. We may act out on emotional impulses and some may think the world is against them or play ” victim”.

Today will also be a great day of self discovery, connecting with your self and your environment will help you truly figure out what you want , what your about and how you want to go about making changes to reach these dreams.

Not only do we see this conjunction between Jupiter and the Moon, but we also see them joining with Mercury in Scorpio. The communication planet in Scorpio means that our thinking and conversation could heat up, become serious and passionate! Be warned that the results of your words and thoughts can go both ways, and some things said and done today can have a larger impact than you expected. It will also be a great morning to allow healing to come through words expressed, journal writing and exploring your inner deep self.

Happy Friday.

HAve a great weekend.

Wednesday is about self care and nurturing! 11/10/2017

Wednesday October 11th, 2017.

The Moon is in Cancer.

Mars in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius.

When you wake up this morning, the Moon will have entered nurturing Cancer while you slept. The Moon rules over Cancer, and the Moon is all about our emotions, making this a day to settle into your feelings. Cancer loves to seek and provide comfort. Cook for yourself, make a romantic meal or feed your friends. Today the energy is wonderful to show love and warmth to everyone you meet, stranger or not.

Aggressive Mars form a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn. This will create some friction between the planet that rules our will and drive and the Master planet of limitation, lessons and Karma. You may experience frustration and aggravation today, if you feel as the whole world is against you, what a great  warning or a sign to slow down and resist the temptation to react or respond without thinking things through! The key to today is to slow down and take things steady, if you feel situations or emotions are getting out of your control, take a walk, clear your mind. Let your actions today be taken with discernment, an open heart and integrity and not from an impulse, reaction and  irritability!

The past few days have been deeply challenging and comfort is one thing you can do with and offer use the Moon in Cancer to nurture yourself and others, retreat to the comfort of your home and loved ones today if it gets too much!.

Happy Wednesday Gang!

Jupiter enters Scorpio 10/10/17

Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

Jupiter enters Scorpio.

What a massive shift we experience today, as lucky Jupiter leaves harmonious Libra and enters into sassy Scorpio, where it will spend the next year expanding and enlarging the qualities of Scorpio. Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion,success and abundance! Jupiter has just spent a year in harmonious, balanced, diplomatic and relationship oriented Libra. Now, as she enters Scorpio, we will experience the qualities of Scorpio expanding over the coming year until November 2018.

Jupiter is moving from an air sign into a water sign. Air signs energy is great for communication, exchanging of ideas, networking, being very light, very superficial and social. Scorpio is a fixed water sign, as a fixed sign Scorpio is more grounded and solid, it’s about control and handling of ones feelings and emotions, its intelligent and very influential to other people as they are emotionally stable, intuitive and grounded.

Pluto is the planet that rules over mysterious Scorpio, and Pluto is about transformation, birth and death. It’s about looking at the bigger picture, healing, intuition and imagination, making deep genuine relationships and making universal connections.

Jupiter in Scorpio is also exceptional for empowering ourselves, entering into deep journeys to discover ones self.  Scorpio also rules all things taboo (or things society deems taboo) like sex, power, money, darker things in life, death and control. Jupiter in Scorpio can help our self to become empowered in these areas and face any fears we may also have in these areas. It  can also be great for deepening  intimacy and partnerships, from romantic but also business and financial.

Scorpio is a great sign to teaches us to go deep within. Scorpio has the gift to look into the eye of darkness, it has the ability to uncover hidden truths, uncover secrets and to destroy what is not working in order for full transformation to occur. When Jupiter is in Scorpio its expanding this energy, its magnifying our ability to go deep within, focus on your self and the emotional side of life. We can learn so much about our self in Scorpio. It would be very handy to look at your chart, Consider what house holds Scorpio, to understand where expansion and transformation will be building in your life during this time.

However, Scorpio can be very intense, and form very intense relationships. Jealously can arise as well as distrust, anger, power control and power plays in relationships. Be aware that over the coming year you will feel things more deeply, you may act out on an emotional impulse. If you are one who is more sensitive to emotions, anxiety or prone to arguments, anger, and love deep take care of yourself and be aware we are entering into an emotional time.

 This coming year can be an amazing one for growth and evolution!

Have a great day!

Transformation and healing! 09/10/2017.

Monday, October 9, 2017.

Mercury squares Pluto in Capricorn.

The Sun In Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon is in Gemini.

Today begins with the communication and thought-provoking, Mercury forming a challenging square to transformative, dark Pluto. The Sun in Libra also squares powerful Pluto today. These aspects will bring some pretty intense energy into relationships, communication and more! Today there isn’t much I can say that may lighten the mood in regards to the challenges we may face during this period. In early January of this year, the Sun joined with Pluto, and it began for many of us a cycle of deep, powerful transformation. Now it is in its third quarter square aspect, it is a time when we will all begin a process of letting go. We should be preparing to dive even deeper than we ever have over the coming year.We will be feeling these energies all day long and can be felt in a very strong way.

Pluto is the planet that relates to death, birth and transformation. It energy embodies all that is powerful and hidden. Pluto is great for seeing the shadow and hidden parts of us and digging deep getting to the truth of matters. It will be more of benefit for you to look directly into the eye of any darkness in your life. Especially any areas or issues you think that you have dealt with or have buried deep within. Where are you questioning issues of trust and safety? Where are you feeling the bitterness of past hurts or anguish.

However these aspects may have a negative side, it needs to make us aware of power or control dynamics around you, within you and your relationship around you. Also, manipulation and certain domination traits may be highlighted within yourself or others. Today is a day to best deal with whats in front of you, and not to completely bury your head in the sand. Honor your struggle and the encounters others are facing during this time. Take the extra step to show up with kindness today and face the world with courage in all circumstances.

The Moon is in chatty, light-hearted and witty Gemini. When the Moon is in Gemini we are upbeat, communication is sharp and we are energetic. This aspect will keep any issues we want to smooth out light and manageable.

Happy Monday!

Here we go! The Full Solar Eclipse we have waited for is finally here! 21/08/2017

 

Monday, August 21, 2017.

New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Good Morning, here we go! The Full Solar Eclipse we have waited for is finally here!

Today we experience the New Moon Solar Eclipse! The Sun and Moon align with each other this afternoon in the sign of Leo. This New Moon is a total Solar Eclipse, oh La La  and this can affect our lives for the coming six months.

Leo is the sign of confidence, romance, enthusiasm , fun, creativity, recreation, sports and being playful. All of Leo positive aspects will be extra highlight during this New Moon. However on the more negative side of Leo aggression, arrogance, and selfishness energy can also be floating around. The New Moon will be pulling in these energies during this solar eclipse and the effects will be lasting for six months, so this is why this solar eclipse is so important.

This eclipse will be making us really look deep into who we are, what we stand for, what your passions are, your desires and goals. It will also have you questioning what you want out of life and what changes need to be made. Major developments in the personal areas ruled by Leo in your chart are likely to occur over the course of the next 3-6 months, so don’t forget to check your chart!

What is your identity? You will have a strong desire to focus on a personal level. New Moons are all about new beginnings, planting seeds of intention, growth, change and healing. New Moons are a great time, especially when solar eclipse in the sign of Leo are involved that we can focus on, and uncover our unique creative powers, building our self-confidence, and make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner.

Use the Leo energy and incorporate it in your manifestations this month. Where do you need to re commit, or find your enjoyment, rekindle a romance and find more time for ” Play” in your life.  Do you need more time for leisure in your busy schedule? or the need for a more progressive change in your life?

Today take some time out and access your life, look at your flaws as they may reveal where and in what area in your life needs a boost. It will give you a prompt to what needs re doing or what we need to start afresh! Happy New Moon wishing!

Happy New Moon Day!

Good Vibes! 10/08/2017

Thursday, August 10th, 2017.

The Moon continues its transit of Pisces all day.

 Mercury in Virgo sextile Venus in Cancer.

The Sun in Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra.

Mercury in Virgo sextile Venus in Cancer. Aligning our heart and our mind in a sweet expansive way, so if you are up early you could start the day off all mushy with sweet pillow talk, tell your loved one you appreciate them and express your love. Remember Mercury is about to go retrograde (Sigh, I know). Venus and Mercury link up twice this month so pay attention to what you think, say and hear today as there can be intimations of what is to come during mercury’s retrograde journey.

The Moon continues its transit of  dreamy, intuitive Pisces all day. A void of course Moon occurs from later this afternoon with the Moon’s last aspect in Pisces before changing into Aires not to mention a square to Saturn.

There may be a bit of a glitch when the Moon squares restrictive Saturn and you must face reality and move into the workday. The key is to find balance between asserting oneself and seeking points of compromise with others.

The Sun in Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra. What a great energy to help stimulate abundance, hopefulness and positive opportunities! It’s a day to engage with others in playful ways, be generous and gaining confidence in yourself, some will also gain a stronger sense of who you are and your principles. We can grasp the “bigger picture” which expands our perspective. The Leo/Libra vibes also support you in your  growth of love within all types of partnerships. In general this is great astrology for growth, luck, confidence and optimism!

 

Happy Thursday.

Thursday, July 20th, 2017.

Mars enters Leo.

The Moon is in Gemini.

The Moon conjunts Venus in Gemini and continues to trine Jupiter in Libra.

Mars the archetype of the male. The planet that represents “what I want” moves out of nurturing Cancer and enters into Leo, where it will stay in the sign until September 5th. Mars is ruled by Aires who is represented by the Ram and its all about pushing through obstacles and getting whatever is holding you back out-of-the-way. Mars is quite happy when it is in Leo, Mars being the red planet of fire and heat, and Leo like Aires is a fire sign. Its confident in this position, especially in the public eye. over the next few weeks we have the drive to go after what we want in a direct, self-assured confident manner desiring dramatic results whether we have the full details or not.

The Moon is still in chatty Gemini. The Moon conjunts Venus in Gemini and continues to trine Jupiter in Libra. What a busy day astrological speaking. It’s a great day for a confidence boost, as you become passionate! Again it is not the best day to make long-term , solid plans as your discernment is blurry. Don’t plan your life this week, go with the flow, play , laugh and socialize!

 

Happy Thursday.

Thursday, July 6, 2017.

The Sun trines Neptune and forms a challenging aspect to Jupiter.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

The Moon squares Neptune in Pisces.

Today, much like yesterday you can expect to continue working with your own understanding and exploration of your path forward.We are all in the process of taking, understanding and thinking about  the cycles that were highly activated yesterday. Spend time on today engaging in an active contemplation of your philosophical and spiritual understanding, especially in regards to your place in the world.

The Moon is in adventurous, expansive  Sagittarius all day. What a great energy to open up to the world, plan a trip and hang out with friends. When the Moon is in Sagittarius we take a philosophical attitude and approach to problems or challenges in our lives. Mundane and emotionally draining activities and routine bore Sagittarius so get out and get active and experience a change in scenery will help restless energies today. This position of the Moon also encourages us to get out be spontaneous,is there a new way of thinking that calls your name? Search it out. Form a spirited approach to the world with a philosophical understanding.

The Moon squares Neptune in Pisces. Today is great for really zeroing down and focusing on your dreams. For some it can mean actually realizing what your dreams are. This can happen naturally through day dreaming or it can happen via by other people. You may also realize today that your dreams may involve other people, such as joining an organisation or teaming up with someone talented to help you with a project or hobby. The key for today is to take your dreams and making them a reality and it is especially favorable if your dreams involve others!!! Today could be the day you get the courage to talk to your dream girl and ask her out…

 

Have a great day.
