Venus enters Cancer 31/07/2017

Monday, 31st July, 2017.

Venus moves into Cancer.

The Moon is in Scorpio.

The Scorpio Moon  sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.

The energy turns very emotional this week as today we see Venus the planet of love move into sensitive Cancer. When it is in this sign, it is at its most nurturing, most sensitive and caring. The need to care for yourself, others, animals will be strong. This includes caring for how you and others feel, and being true to yourself.

The key for today is forgiveness, forgiveness for yourself for any dramas, past hurts or disappointments that are pulling at your heart. Forgiveness for your health, forgiveness if you feel like you don’t have the life you dream off, forgiveness for any lack you may think is missing.

Venus will stay in Cancer until August 26th. We can expect to experience many emotional ups and downs in love and our relationships under this influence.Venus in Cancer is impressionable nurturing, protective, self-protective, cautious, family orientated, we experience an increase in our sensitivity and we are fertile.

This period wont be what everyone thinks it will be for example we will all be sad, temperamental and over emotional. This energy is great for healing! It is also great for those who want to get very intimate , sensual and form a deep connection, a very emotional connection. One that is written about in fairy tales and heroic stories. It’s a time to look those you love in the eye and really tell them you love them.

The feelings and ideas that arise are here to tell us something about our self, the more you fight it, ignore it or don’t acknowledge that part of your self the more you deny your soul of evolving, moving forward and accepting what is, in order to have a happier life.

The Moon spends all of today in the sign of Scorpio. More water energy, emotional energy, means we are willing to dive into the hidden parts of us, we are ready to dive into the fear, resentment and into all the hidden emotions we usually repress. We seek out activities that enrich and that are deeply fulfilling.

This Scorpio Moon than sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn is all about making changes. Today you will feel a great deal of emotion, you may feel sentimental and the littlest thing can set you off. Deep rooted feelings and past disappointments may also rear their ugly heads so use this time to sit down, take a personal inventory and feel what changes may need to be made. These feelings are here to show us what you need to do in life what you want your life to be like. It’s the future of your emotional, mental and general well-being. Take charge!!

Look out for any signal in any area of your life and use this to motivate you! Acceptance is the key, use the Pluto energy to transform your life in the positive way!

Happy Monday!

Have a great day.

Full Moon in Capricorn 2017.

 

The Full Moon happens in the sign of Capricorn this month. This months Full Moon is going to be a very beautiful, positive transformative Full Moon. This Moon has Pluto sitting right next to it and it has the potential to be life changing.

A Full Moon is when the Sun is exact opposite the Moon at 180 degrees. A Full Moon astrology speaking highlights opposing forces or polarities in our life. Areas can include our home life, work life, our needs, wants and especially our emotional needs verses what our egos want. As the lunar cycle reaches its fullest on the 09/07/2017 our emotions and insists reach their peak, ever felt a tad loony oar emotional responsive around a Full Moon? Full Moons are known to heighten sensitivity that can lead and create inner tension and external pressure that result in a crisis and can drain your energy or heighten it. However with all this new found emotional power and strength, the key is to use it, along with your intuition and the energy and traits of the Moons position in a certain star sign to overcome any challenges. Subconscious awareness during this period allows for an objective and balanced look at your life and your personal relationships.

This July 9th full moon at 17°09′ Capricorn is only one degree away from Pluto. This trasnformative, healing planet of power and intensity transmutes healing and lessons through the process of  destruction and renewal. As emotions are already high during a full Moon they are about to even more all powerful and somewhat all consuming this week. Can you feel the energy building already? As far as Full Moons go this one will be as powerful as they can get.

Moon conjunct Pluto brings such deep and intense feelings to the surface that they can overwhelm you. You may become obsessed about your feelings and have trouble focusing on anything else. Dreams, visions, psychic impressions or intuitive insights may have a profound influence on your mood.

Sun in Cancer opposing the Moon in Capricorn makes the Moon/ Pluto alignment more challenging.

because of the relationship tension it creates. The battles you have with other people can mirror your own inner conflict as you try to reconcile differences between what you want versus what you need.
Sun opposite Pluto brings a crisis either with self-esteem, a relationships or an event. This may be due to a self-destructive character trait such as addiction, spying or stubbornness. In relationships, you may be the subject of, or the perpetrator of, manipulation, jealousy, domination or spying. Events may include the breakdown of an appliance or car, theft, violence, or the destruction of possessions by people or natural disaster.

Full Moon occurs with the Cancer Sun in opposition to the Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time—a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Cancer-Capricorn polarity concerns the balance between the private life, domesticity, the need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by Cancer) versus the public life, career, reputation, and accountability (represented by Capricorn). Attachments and love are ruled by Cancer, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by Capricorn. In some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. While Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible. Cancer represents the origin, and Capricorn represents the goal. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do. This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.
The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between roots and direction. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is fresh, unrefined, and not particularly rational as yet.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Mercury in Gemini challenges Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon who is passing through confident, adventurous,optimistic Sagittarius. We are nearly at the Full Moon can you feel the energies pulling?

This is a day to seek out adventures and to look ahead and plan more adventures. Open your mind to the way people unlike yourself live, love, and think.  Place your attention on activities that expand your mind in unexpected ways, and add some enthusiasm into all that you do and you should move forward smoothly today!

Mercury in Gemini forms a challenging aspect to Pluto in Capricorn today. Causing tension between the mind and our intellect verses the planet of birth and death and the lord of healing old wounds and past hurts. Today we may find our self viewing and communicating with others in a more critical way. If others aren’t agreeing with your ideas or adopting your methods, you might take it as a personal affront. However just watch yourself becoming to hasty and hard in our dealings others, limit how you manipulate and control situations and your responses! Use the energies in a positive way by developing strategies in dealing with handling situations more deeply. This Mercury/Pluto aspect is also great for us to express our self by communication and getting to the bottom of self truths! No better therapy!

Have a great day!

The Energy is Shifting! 09/05/17 Daily Grind.

Tuesday May 9th, 2017.

The Sun  in Taurus.

The Sun trines Pluto in Capricorn.

Mercury and Uranus both in Aires.

The Moon enters Scorpio.

Today is one of those days a major shift happens as I mentioned yesterday. Universally it will begin to happen and fast.

The Moon moves into Scorpio this morning. Now yesterday we had the Moon in harmonious, social, chatty, relationship focused and balanced Libra, and now we see the Moon enter sassy Scorpio who thrives on uncovering mysteries. Scorpio loves delving deep into places we have hidden within our self , its  truthful, sensual and brings your emotions to a deep dive into intensity and passion.

Today we also have Mercury in Aires still coming out of its retrograde shadow period and it’s still conjunting Uranus in Aires ( if you missed out have a read of yesterdays post). It’s a total shift from Monday were we where sociable and positive, we now are very self focused and questioning” What about my feelings” “Why aren’t my needs been met” ” What about my ideas” , Why isn’t anybody listening to me!

Today be aware there is potential for frustration and burst of annoyance, in all areas of your life, work, love, friends, people who are giving you a service. Monday you seen yourself as a part of something larger working along with others and today well its all about ME, ME ME ME..

The Sun is in earthy stubborn Taurus. The Sun than forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. With the Sun and Pluto tangoing in the sky, it helps us align our ego with our conscious self, it also brings along the issues of power and empowerment to the dance floor. Its energy will be a spotlight shining front and center! For both the good and potentially the bad, depends on how you look at life.. is it  a lesson or a blessing. However this is a great chance for us to use this power for transformation and empowerment.

Today can be a powerful time for insights, what issues have you been struggling to come to a conclusion with? We have a lot of earth signs in the chart today, so emotional confusion will not be in the mix.  This can be a time of mental breakthroughs, creative envisioning, innovative thinking, and you may find our interest will be on the material world, our finances, career, improving our health and vitality!

Good luck and just remember to breath and smile tomorrow is a new day!

Pluto stations Retrograde 20/4/17

Thursday, April 20th, 2017.

Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn.

Mercury Retrograde moves back into Aires.

Mercury Retrograde moves backwards into Aires today.  Some may feel the shift from earthy,grounded Taurus to fast pace, fiery Aires. With Mercury back in Aries, our communications will be more direct, assertive and we become very head strong and dynamic! However as much as being a little more assertive can be good thing we can also be aggressive, overly fire, angry and dominating too. Finding ways to breath and calm down  in times of anger so that we are communicating and thinking directly but not violently or aggressively is key to getting through today. Pay attention to the difference between assertiveness and aggression.

One of the highlights of this Mercury retrograde journey especially for me who is going through some major life changes is its triple conjunction with Uranus during the coming weeks with the 2nd interaction taking place soon. Prepare and brace yourself for shocking, all empowering, or sudden information being illuminated and coming to Light.

Pluto stations retrograde in the sign of Capricorn today, and thus making the Lord of the Underworld and planet of death and rebirth the most powerful planet in the sky! Pluto’s intense and complex energy hangs heavy in the air until September 28th, 2017 when it moves direct. Over the next few days/weeks surrounding Pluto’s station can be especially intense, and I bet you can all feel it in the air, something dark and stirring. So be aware of how you use and dominate your power, and stay clear of power/control dynamics and manipulation as we may be re-assessing how we use our power.

Empowerment Vs over powering is the theme and my caution during this time. Any conflict that you may occur now is worth examining , instead of seeing the negatives, ask yourself what the message is in these challenges you face during this phase.

Have a great day!

14 degrees in Mercury.. 10/8/16

Wednesday August 10th 2016

Mercury in Virgo trines retrograde Pluto in Capricorn

QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO

Arh with both these planets in earth signs  today we will find ourselves going beyond the norm to find the hidden esoteric or psychological truth.  Today’s planetary influences give us the courage  for deep  communication, we will want to  get to the root or source of matters.

~But lets talk about Mercury and the next two months to come~

Today is an interesting day… First we see Mercury  at 14 degrees in the sign of Virgo, making a positive aspect to Pluto.  Now this it is worth noting that Mercury retrograde back to 14 degrees in the sign of Virgo before it goes back in direct motion in third week in September. Mercury will also be stationed at the same 14 degree when it goes back, there is something significant in this if you ask me..

So what does this mean for us? Well as we know Mercury is the planet that rules our mental thoughts, ideas, messages and communication. Pluto is the planet of power, death and rebirth, regeneration, transformation. So there is something amazing about this aspect, something empowering… this energy empowers your mind, the way you think, empowering new ideas. Paying attention to the small details that will help you move forward on your path…

We need to remember this is a mental energy, so whatever ideas and thoughts we come up with today ,when mercury is connected with Pluto we will be reworking them. Focus on the details. This influence will make us feel empowered to complete our new bright ideas and thoughts.  We will move forward and once Mercury goes back in direct motion in that same degree you will see a drive to successfully complete those new ideas, situations and new opportunities you have been creating for yourself.

Now remember gang we are talking about Mercury’s influence so look out for any new communications you may start this week with someone  of influence, someone positive, someone powerful that you may regard as a wholesome teacher. These conversations and communication interactions you have may  come back around and make a full circle once mercury comes out of retrograde in September.

Today and over the next week pay attention to what is said and what is heard,  as it can give you insight into what is going to surface and  be part of your personal journey during Mercury retrograde .

 

Have a great day
