The Sun Enters Taurus, 19/04/18.

 

Thursday, April 19, 2018.

The Sun enters Taurus.

Venus in Taurus sesquiquadrates  Retrograde Saturn in Capricorn.

As the Sun moves through the zodiac, we enter into a more ground and stable energy as the Sun leaves assertive, dynamic Aries and  enters stable, grounded Taurus. The energy will shift from fire to earth and from action to patience. The Taurus Sun seeks safety, stability, reliability and structure. Taurus values loyalty and it has a fine love for the love of beauty and precious possessions. It is also the most sensual sign of the zodiac. We get a chance to slow down and smell the roses. We are now at an even better time to go inwards and pay attention to our bodies, our needs and comforts. However the shadow side of Taurus is that we can get to self-absorbed and over indulgent on the finer things in life. Watch out for being to resistant to change and being stubborn and lazy.

 

It’s also a great idea to have a look to the house in your chart that holds Taurus to shed some understanding and light where these energies are available.

 

Venus in Taurus sesquiquadrates Retrograde Saturn in Capricorn. This will create tension between the planet of love and beauty and the mighty teacher and lord of Karma and lessons. This aspect seems very intimidating but it’s also the shake up that we need to get real. Our structures, beliefs and foundations of life as we know it  may get an overview as Saturn shows us the tiny faults that might be holding us back. It get through this harsh reality check we must align that part of us that represents love, relationships and beauty with our values, see what supports us or hold sus back. Are we truly aligning our self with our morals and values or are we doing so just to please others?

Have a great day!

Expect the Unexpected, 18/04/18.

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018.

The Sun and Uranus align in Aries.

The Moon moves into Gemini.

Today I can say that some of you won’t feel as stable or even steady on your feet .Several things come together today that brings a restlessness energy about it, that results in this lack of stability about the day. First we have the Moon who is now in Gemini. Gemini who is curious by nature, loves intellectual stimulation and being social, but can be immature and lack empathy which comes across as shallow and cold. Secondly, the Sun and Uranus align in the sign of Aries this morning, causing  interruptions and disruptions in our normal way of life and thinking and can turn us in new directions.

Today will make for an intellectual and stimulating day especially in regards to change. Today to get out of a rut you  may find yourself in, throw your energy into something you are curious about or make it a day to catch up on paperwork or catch up with an old trustworthy friend.

The Sun cojoins Uranus in Aries. Making it the wild card of the sky and very powerful today. This alignment of our ego and our inner rebel will help us release our inner self and make for a liberating few days! Today also marks the beginning a year-long conversation between them both. The Great Awakener and revolutionary planet helps us into a new cycle that will revolutionize our self.  This is going to be great for change, self awakening, revolution and rebellion. Not to mention Chiron moving into Aries we will be full steam ahead in our own personal development. However with all this Aries energy around we must pull yourself back into line, especially as Aries is ruled by Mars as we can tend to be too impulsive, selfish and reactivate. This is really a jump-start into our revolution if you can focus and wield this energy properly you will have great potential to grow and change for the better.

Wherever change needs to happen just remember that Uranus brings with it conversations and thoughts of sudden unexpected epiphanies, revolution, defiance and sparks of ” Ah ha” moments. Expect the unexpected.

 

Happy Hump Day!

Chiron Enters Aries 17/04/2018.

Chiron moves from Pisces to Aries.

Today marks a  new, pioneering and fresh aspect to the realm of healing. As Chiron enters into Aries, beginning its transit on April 17th, 2018.

Chiron is called many different names, from  a comet, an asteroid and a planetoid. Its role in astrology relates to healing the wounds of our soul. These wounds that we carry with us create energy blockages which in turn can cause emotional, psychological and physical distress that impact our life significantly.

Chiron has been traveling through the transcendent and dreamy sign of Pisces for the past eight years, and today it is about to move into Aries. Aries is the male archetype sign that is ruled fire. It is the sign of the warrior, the go getter and adventurer.

Chiron gets us to do a self-assessment and to look deep into what is working, what isn’t, what repetitive patterns keep resurfacing, what emotional distress or fears seem to never go away and ultimately to see how well our life patterns are supporting our ability to heal and what affects this has on our health. It is important for each individual to remember that Chiron’s main role astrological speaking is help promote the assimilation of our mind, body and spirit framework to ultimately achieve balance in our energetic systems.

While Pisces provided us with a divine doorway to bliss, insight and an intuitive path into our soul and its needs, it also created a transparency and dependency. It opened a door to alcohol, drugs and other nasty substances of addiction. This includes addiction to technology and a loss of self-identity! The focus now it is in Aries, will move into a state of health consciousness and undergo a radial health transformation. We will likely see new and pioneering shifts of medicine and healing during this phase. Exciting stuff.

Heads up to those who have  planets in cardinal signs, such as Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn (Which I have 60% in my chart) those of us will experience this transit the most, we might find ourselves feeling triggered emotionally, drained or perhaps a loss of energy. Cardinal signs will be challenged the most. You will be affected more than once over the next eight years. This means that you will have to tap into your inner warrior and tune into the Aries energy of courage and strength in order to embrace the messages and healing coming to you from Chiron. Fires signs such as Sadge and Leo will be showered with more of the healing energy. Enjoy!

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and it represents our personal self-development and personality. We will begin a new search for our identity, look outside from a new prospective at anything that is bringing us down. We will redirect and re self orientate our self. The energy moves from yin to yang as Pisces was about the greater good and the collective as a whole and Aries moves us into the “Self” makes it personal and more about the individual. Expect yourself to be asking questions such as “What am a I fighting for?”  “Why am I really here?” and  “What is my purpose?”. This aspect encourages us to discover more about our self and to take back your power. It initiates us to take action, fight for what you want and believe in and don’t take “NO”.

As we are set into motion on finding out our true identity we must gain courage to look deep within our self. To have the courage to look at yourself and discover what needs healing in order to move forward is hard for anyone, but with a planetary push from Chiron we are able to do so with confidence and come to an understanding of our enlightened journey on this planet! It’s about real transformation now, embrace it.

Chiron is offering it to those who want its healing energy, but its the original source may come from of place of pain, loneliness and darkness. Our deepest seeded internal conflict can be resolved if you are will to do the work. Have you looked at natal chart to see where Chiron is sitting to gain some insight on how to heal yourself? No matter what your age, when Chiron transits Aries it will create a significant shift. It will have an effect on all of us in some way.

Chiron in Aries will shifts our focus from omega to alpha from water to fire. It will shift our healing and our wounds towards our ego, our masculine self and our will and drive. Remember, this will give us the opportunity to get face to face with our deep wounds and heal them. Especially in regards to these areas of our self that are associated with rage, motivation, drive, anger, assertiveness, our relationship with the masculine and self focus over the  incoming years.

Friday the 13th is all about Luck Today! 13/04/2018.

Friday, April 13th, 2018

The Moon transits Pisces most of the day.

The Pisces Moon forms a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn and forms a trine to expansive Jupiter in Scorpio.

Happy Friday the 13th! Lucky for us today continues with much of the same sense as yesterday, giving us a romantic, dreamy, imaginative and gentle break.We have a very  exciting weekend a head as we will see Mercury station direct ( Yay)  and a New Moon in Aries!

Over the weekend, it would be wise to spend some time alone with your own sensitivity and depth. If you are spiritual, engage with your spiritual practice and spend as much time as possible in nature or in meditation and yoga. If you are more creative than engage with your imagination to create something spectacular or something with iridescent beauty through art , music or writing. Enjoy this slower pace of life before we hit Aries energy where life is fast pace and very Go GO GO.

The Pisces Moon forms a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn and forms a trine to expansive Jupiter in Scorpio. Key words to remember today are feelings, insight, creativity, healing and expansion. Take a look at your life, this aspect is great at helping you give a face lift to certain areas that you may feel “Stuck in “. The Pisces Moon means that we are connected with our higher self and spiritual side and Pluto in Capricorn is all about pushing us to make changes in the real world. The past will seem incredibly relevant as issues can surface at the moment to give you insight on what changes need to be made. s Scorpio is all about hidden truths and when its energy is combined with the good luck and planet, your good luck and abundance will come in the form of listening to your feelings and emotions and acting upon them.  We will have a strong urge to take steps to better ourselves, or perhaps solve a long-standing problem or even give a long overdue apology to someone and mend a broken relationship.

 

Happy Friday!

Take it or leave it. April 6th, 2018.

Friday, April 6th, 2018.

The Moon leaves Sadge and enters Capricorn.

Mercury Retrograde in Aries semisextiles Venus in Taurus.

Today we wake up with a bit of a morning excitement or you may feel more defiant and cheeky as the excessive Sagittarius Moon makes contact with rebellious Uranus. You may find yourself feeling inspired and upbeat or simply unsettled and agitated. My advice for this friday.. go with the flow and roll with it, this aspect will pass quickly.

The Moon continues its transit of Sagittarius until this afternoon when it enters Capricorn. As the Moon in any sign represents how “I Feel” you will find that this morning will bring with it curiosity, playfulness and adventure but as we enter the afternoon the mood turns more practical, stable and driven. Today use the fun light-hearted energy of the morning to get you ready for the weekend, dream, creative and think of fun adventures that could play out over the weekend. By the afternoon you will be more grounded and stable to put your plans into action as you will have more structure on what you want to achieve over the coming days

 

Mercury Retrograde in Aries semisextiles Venus in Taurus. This harmonious alignment connects our intellect a communication with  the heart, love and beauty. Today use this energy and communicate how you really feel with someone special, Mercury Retrograde is helping us by slowing us down to connect on how we truly feel at the moment and Venus is helping us connect and care about relationships and your connection with others today.

Happy Friday!

Harsh Reality! 29/03/2018!

 

Thursday, March 29, 2018.

The Moon is in Virgo.

The Sun in Aries squares Saturn in Capricorn.

As the Moon passes through organised, efficient and analytical Virgo, you feel driven to accomplish things today especially if it’s at work, your health or at home organisation.

Last year on December 21st, Saturn returned to his home sign of Capricorn, as well as joining the Sun and beginning an annual cycle. This cycle has brought forth some  seriousness, stability and responsibility to the table. Today we reach the First Quarter Square between them, it’s a day  for action, reflection and a day to face to reality!

The Sun in Aries squares Saturn in Capricorn. Creating tension and a lot of friction between our conscious self/Ego and the planet of Karma, Mastery and lessons.Today will be a great time to consider or review what your responsibilities are? What blocks or issues are holds you back? What is striking a nerve of late? As your patience on these matters are here to teach you maturity, wisdom , self-respect and mastery!Face all of  your circumstances with determination as these issues are what we are meant to be  learning.

Today remember that all this intense energy will pass. Have a great Easter everyone and a wonderful day!

Impulsive and excited! 28/03/2018!

 

Wednesday, March 28, 2018.

The Moon enters Virgo.

Retrograde Mercury in Aires semisextiles Neptune in Pisces.

Today brings with it a Virgo Moon, inviting a more relaxed energy and slowing us down especially after the previous two days of dramatic up and downs of the Leo Moon.The Virgo Moon energy is more patient, organised and focused. It also has the ability to solve problems as well as being flexible and adaptable if needed.

Retrograde Mercury in Aires semisextiles Neptune in Pisces. Connecting our communication and conscious with the planet of intuition, illusion and mysticism. Mercury/Neptune combining energies can be great for deepening and developing our spirituality, intuition and psychic ability! Today work on your inner knowing. Meditate, have a guess who is calling before you pick up the phone, work with tarot cards, journal, dream and be creative! Your inner world and day dreaming is key right now! However, please keep in mind that Mercury is in retrograde. This is not the time to begin something, especially if it is quirky and seems brilliant just find your excitement in what is already on the table, whats in front of you, dream big, get your ideas and plans together for the right time!

 

Venus aligns with Uranus in assertive Aries today. You may feel rebellious and impatient. This alignment brings out our rebellious and imperial side! However, the transit of Uranus and Venus encourages some unwanted or wanted depending who you are intense and sudden changes in your  relationships, money, love and creative projects,l especially if you have been craving change! Expect the unexpected! Don’t take risk you are not willing to see through! Remember, this will pass in a few days, don’t jeopardize  your life especially relationships on a passing whim, emotion or restlessness.

Today we will find that we will go out of your way to avoid boredom, seek  more stimulation and excitement. Have a great day!

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.

Don’t Try to Control Those Around You.23/03/2018.

Friday, March 23, 2018.

Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn.

Mercury  in Retrograde in Aires.

Today brings a powerful transit between Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. This  transit will cause tension and friction between the planet of love and finances and the lord of the underworld and change! This means there will be intensity and possible turmoil in our relationships over the next 3 days! If anything, this will demonstrate the importance of deep change and  the importance of getting out of our own way and seeing all sides to any story or argument in your loving relationships. Issues or stuff that we are not looking for at the moment can arise right now. Thanks to Mercury Retrograde, everything is being brought up to the surface for healing, whether we like it or not!

This is not all bad! If you are in a less than stable, unhealthy partnership, where you finally realize your own self-worth this could bring the final break or push you need to make a change. On the other, if you are in a balanced healthy relationship this transit could give you that extra push to bring up those little things that have been bugging you lately! Welcome this change  to occur so that we can move forward in a positive way (although at the time it may seem like a curse, but you will see the blessing in the lesson soon enough).

 

As I have mentioned it is Mercury retrograde be acutely aware of how you are communicating between yourself and your loved ones. Allow yourself to loosen your grip as power play dynamics and control issue will come into play and will be very strong! Just steer clear of this and especially let go of trying to control every situation, being pushy, playing a victim, don’t get jealous, don’t give into power dynamics, or obsessing and becoming very  possessive.

The reality is that you can’t control others full stop! Release your attachment to the outcome.

With Venus in Aires and Mercury retrograde this is also not a time to make new financial investments, Even if the attraction is intensely powerful

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

MERCURY RETROGRADE in Aires! 22/03/2018

Thursday, March 22, 2018.

MERCURY RETROGRADE in Aires!

The Moon is in Gemini.

By the time you wake up this morning, the Moon has entered inquisitive, ambitious, intellectual and restless Gemini. While the Moon makes her way through Gemini, you will find that not only yourself but others  tend to be more light-hearted, social and talkative.Gemini in is an Air sign so thoughts and communications come into play today. Curiosity and being alert of your surrounds and the conversations being had will spark your interest,  also you will be more aware and more alert of others intentions. However, today being Mercury Retrograde  don’t be surprised if your communications or you normally quick ways if thinking somehow fall flat.

Mercury, the communication and mental realm planet that rules Gemini turns Retrograde This may leave you feeling somehow stuck in your communications in the way you think, your travel plans, business plans, home  loans and contracts.

During this period we may struggle or have some difficulties saying what we want to say, or saying things that leave you wondering” Why the hell did I just say that, i didn’t mean it in that context” well that’s if you can even manage to get the words out.

Keys to remember during this Mercury Retrograde…

  • It is best not to start new projects, but it is a great time to reconsidering an initiative venture or project. It’s great for coming up with new ideas and adventures, but remember do not pursue them yet!!! Dream, draw up plans, make list get the all the  information together first and review review review! It’s also strong time for returning, revisiting and rethinking an old project or pursuit you have left on the back burner.We can gain new clarity during  this upside down period!
  • The shortness of  Aries communications is magnified making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of topics and wording. The chances of sharp or  harsh comments can do some damage in the long run.
  • Mercury rules information, communication, reasoning, our manner of thinking, travel, technology, logic and how we express all of these! Its our thought processes and all Mercury related things right now can be off-center. It may feel difficult to say what you want to say, and you can leave conversations  wondering if you were understood. Communications are scrambled. Expected the unexpected and clarify all that you do, travel plans, communication , instructions, save and back up your work and even get people to relay what you have just said to them to avoid mishaps. And if you don’t get whats being said relay it back! everyone is experience this Mercury Retrograde!
  • As I mention Mercury is related to technology so for the next month if you can avoid it, it is not the best time to buy a phone, new computer or tv.
  • Signing your life away for a new home, a lease, car or any contracts BE CARE read all the information, as not all the information is not in yet or could be missing. Human error, computer error and Mercury error is in play and we do not want to regret doing anything later.

When Mercury Retrograde is in Aries, our mind and thoughts are going at a thousand miles an hour! Everything is GO GO GO, we may get frustrated if people are not thinking or doing as quick as we are. Aries energy when communicating is magnified.. EEk making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of words, tones and topics.There will be a chances that we may become sharp, blunt or unemotional when making comments and this can do damage. If you feel like you can’t get out of your head and its building up to a point of frustration and you want to explode take a breath, go for a walk, exercise and take some time to reign your thoughts! Do not let your temper, stubborn, impulsive mind take over your mind and how we communicate to others. Aires Mercury Retrograde has the ability to make us feel as what we say and feel is the right way, and have the arrogance to ignore the facts, When people who question our logic and reasoning we can act impulsively and aggressively! As my mother also told me ” Andy THINK before you speak or act ”

 

Some say this will be a time of tension, however, we need to remember the positive side of  Mercury in Aries. Mercury in Aires wants progress, answers, no more procrastination. Its time to push our self to make those positive steps to benefit our self in the long run. Get through obstacles, push our own boundaries, be selfish for once.We have the courage to get the message across and speak up for our self when normally we would sit in silence. When Mercury is in Aires especially when its stationed retrograde we have a great opportunity  to taker a step back and have a deeper look at our past decisions, patterns, behaviors and ideas from a new and possibly enlightening  perspective. Change is highly possible!

Please ,carefully consider how to manage the turbulent energy of Aires this Mercury Retrograde which continues until April 15th. Remember, Mercury retrograde is a powerful time for accomplishment if you plan and prepare accordingly. Something I really need to take note on!

Happy Mercury Retrograde gang!
