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!

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.

New Moon Energy! 16/04/2018.

Monday April 16th, 2018.

New Moon in Aries.

Mercury in Aries semisquares Venus in Taurus.

We have a New Moon in Aries in our midst, as the Sun and Moon meet at 180 degree of one and another, the Moon recharges its batteries for the next lunar cycle. This month it is recharging with Aries energy. New beginnings and taking action are they key words for this New Moon. Forward momentum, getting on with things and life whilst taking action on those plans you have put aside especially now Mercury retrograde is over and it has stationed direct!

The New Moon in Aries, represents a time of going inward and regenerating. Pulling n Aries energy from the Sun. We are at a time of empowerment, progression and future thinking. Aries being the first sign of the zodiac means it is a new lunar year! Aries is a fire sign passionate and driven. It is a pioneer and its energy is related to igniting yourself and getting things started. These months expect motivation, being impulsive, desire,charm and generating ideas. As Aries is ruled by Mars the male planet, this sign has lots of masculine qualities about it. Strength, manual labour and self-assertion, it is also a time to reflect on what you care about. It is a time to ask yourself.. What do I need to get myself started on the right path. What aspect of your life do you want to make progression in? Your Career? Physical health? relationships?

The New Moon is at 26 degrees, two and six equals eight. Eight in numerology is power number! So not only are we lucky enough to be getting a jump-start by pulling in Aries energy, which is very goal oriented and GO GO GO energy that is driven to focus on the future, we will also be empowered and magnified. This is about you this month, what you want and what you want to achieve.

Mercury in Aries semisquares Venus in Taurus. This can cause a little upset with our heart and our mind. Inner and outer conflicts with our relationships can happen, as we seek independence as well as connection with others. Watch out and don’t put your foot in it, unless you really need to speak up today. As my wise mother always told me, think before you speak! Meet people in the middle, don’t let your thoughts and impulses dictate your actions especially if you feel your emotions or thoughts going from 1 – 100 in seconds. On a more positive note, your thoughts, communications and insights arising today can shed light on what is awry in our relationships, both personal and business.

Happy Monday and New Moon wishing.

Navigate with Care! April 10th, 2018.

The Moon is in Aquarius.

The Sun in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn.

Today we have the Moon still in Aquarius, and it is Aquarius  providing us with objectivity and open-minded detachment to situations and resolutions that can allow us to remain emotionally removed from the outcome. Today is great to step outside your comfort zone, interact with like-minded and the more unusual folk. Spark up interesting conversations and work towards a more progressive way of thinking and being under the Moon’s influence in Aquarius. You will crave independence and freedom today use this as a breakthrough and let it propel you into new interesting areas.

As we head into the afternoon, you may come face to face the darker side of the day. The Sun in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. This can stir up some tension between our conscious self and the planet of transformation and power. Pluto is intense on a good day and now that we have friction arising, we can experience some power play and control dynamics with others or even internally if we don’t watch our thoughts. This tension can  particularly happen with authority figures or people in charge.

The Sun in Aries is means that we are very independent and superior and that falling  back into line is not an option, and on the other hand Pluto energy is oppressive and controlling as it squares the Aries Sun. Today, the key to handling these energies is action on your behalf. Action meaning  something is being required of you, perhaps a change in direction, we may need to find balance, practice self-control, not be reactive, aggressive or impulsive. Today its best if you can find the balance between asserting yourself in the right situation and knowing when to back down and wait.

Have a good day!

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!

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.

Rule by your Heart not the EGO. 26/03/18.

Monday March 26th, 2018.

Moon enters Leo.

The Moon leaves its transit of nurturing Cancer and it enters excitable Leo this morning. When the Moon is in Leo, we are proud, playful and crave the spotlight and attention!We have a need to be creative, expressive and playful. If there is any area of your life that needs an added boost of sunshine, playfulness, attention and energy, today is the day to focus on those areas and harness the energy wisely! Our unique qualities and talents will come out today have some fun! If we are authentic and true to our self and have the back bone to prove to someone your worth today you will benefit tremendously

However, on the shadow side of Leo energy is that we can be too proud to back down when it is needed! We can over take others time to shine! We can be very egotistical and we can boast too much self-esteem that comes across in the wrong way! It’s also a time to think about and ask yourself whether you’re being too proud in some situations.

But overall it’s a great day to show yourself some self-love and attention, shine today and be proud of who you are!

 

Happy Monday!

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!

Let things Go! 09/03/18.

The Quarter Moon is Sagittarius.

The Sun in Pisces squares the moon in Sadge.

Early this morning we reach the 3rd Quarter Moon phase in Sagittarius. The Quarter Moon can be stressful if you let it! It’s a time that  raises issues that need dealing with. Is there a theme that keeps repeating itself or just trying to get your attention? Is their conflict, tension between you and someone else perhaps? Are you hitting road blocks in projects? A problem can not be solved by ignoring it, so this is the time to make peace with yourself and deal with whatever issues are coming up!

The Sagittarius Moon will form a stressful square aspect between the Sun in Pisces and it’s highlighting for us to let go of something that has been developing over the past 3 weeks. Sadge and Pisces are mutable signs, adaptable signs which means for us we can compromise, agree and see things from all sides and we have the ability to let go of issues easily.

The theme for today is to get over it and let things go! Shake it off and have a great weekend!

Have a great day!

We see the First Quarter Moon in Gemini.

Mercury in Pisces semisquares Uranus in Aries.

We see the First Quarter Moon in the social and restless Gemini. As you wake up today you are being asked to look back and remember what intentions and seeds you planet at the New Moon.What actions need to be taken to progress with these manifestations and goals?

The Gemini Moon forms a challenging square aspect to the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune. There can be confusion and you may be at odds with the mental depth Gemini energy provides to all this Pisces energy which is over emotional.  You maybe left  feeling conflicted,  uncomfortable and confused. If you found yourself having internal conflicts especially between your mind and heart don’t be to hard on yourself , just listen to what is being brought to your attention without over analyzing it. It will pass if you let it and try not to take any of the discomfort too seriously.

We also see Mercury in Pisces semisquares Uranus in Aries later today! This can and will create tension between our higher mind and that part that rules that part of us that wants to rebel and be unconventional. Expect the unexpected today, especially in regards to communication with others and spontaneous ideas. Today even though the energy conflict each other you may have surprise Aha moments and revelations exposed.

 

Happy Friday!
