Reality Check! 06/12/2017.

 

Wednesday December 6th, 2017.

Retrograde Mercury cojoins Saturn.

The Moon enters Leo.

Retrograde Mercury cojoins Saturn in Sagittarius for the second time in the past 10 days. (Mercury first met Saturn on November 28th). Mercury/Saturn aligns the mind and our intellect with the planet of karma and Mastery. Today begins with your attention clearly being directed to the challenging obstacles or walls that seems to stand in the way between you and what you are seeking to accomplish. This alignment between Mercury/Saturn tends to have the effect of forcing a solution, reality, or an answer on us. This can be done be hard reality checks, wake up calls and serious conversations so pay attention to where you are being asked to step it up. Do not try to tear that wall down or trip over yourself in the process, take the Universe’s direction to slow down. Speak directly with integrity, and accept the fact that some particular walls cannot be scaled at this time. Remember some “No” are not forever, maybe something better is being lined up for you!

The Moon enters expressive, playful Leo, moving you to release the sensitivity of the Cancer Moon over the past few days. Work on being expressive, creative and put yourself out there and share yourself with others in heartfelt ways, whilst remembering not to  over dramatize yourself and the issues you are dealing with.

Happy Hump Day!

Venus enters Sagittarius 01/12/2017!

Friday, December 1, 2017.

Venus enters Sagittarius.

Mars in Libra opposes retrograde Uranus in Aries.

Early this morning Venus moves out of Scorpio and entered freedom-loving Sagittarius. Venus is the planet that represents our deepest values, beauty, money, love, relationships and thus shifts the Goddess of beauty from water energy to fire energy. Venus brings our awareness to the beauty of each sign. When Venus was in Scorpio the energy was passionate, intense and possessive and now that Venus is in Sagittarius we can find our self valuing our freedom, appreciating spontaneous acts of love and grand gestures. On the other hand, some may prefer to explore, be alone and free, reach out and expand. Now, as Venus moves into Sagittarius, the lessons of love take a lighter turn. Venus in Sagittarius is also a great time to explore, travel and expand our hearts, minds and all the beauty that surrounds us.

Venus will remain in Sagittarius until December 25th, 2017. It is time to think of love, money, and beauty as a philosophical quest, as an extension of us, as a time to be free and seek the space you need to be creative. Its a time to love on your terms, to let your mind expanded and a time to let the bonds that hold you back loosen as you fall into the arms of love this month. However do not fall into the trap of the shadow side of Venus in Sadge, such as that you can be seduced by the idea of a sudden flash of fortune, new love interest and be ready to drop the world in pursuit of what you perceive is happiness. Thinking that the grass is always greener on the other side, and that your actions and words don’t affect others around you. Being to impulsive and reckless and going to big and to far, beyond a point of no return.

Another highly significant planetary occurrence happens today an opposition between action-taking Mars forms and dynamic, unexpected and revolutionary Uranus. Creating tension between our will and drive and the part of us related to our inner rebel and revolutionary self! This cycle although it seems very doom and gloom helps us get more direction in regards to the part of us that may need courage to take revolutionary actions that need to take in place in your own life and for the humanitarian needs not just in our own life but the collective lives around the world. This cycle between Mars and Uranus is approximately a two-year cycle of bringing courage and direct action and it begun back in February this year. Looking back, carefully consider what began at that time, what was your vision and what actions have you taken to reach this vision? If you have planets or points between 23 and 27 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), in your birth chart, you can expect this will have direct significance in your personal life.

Happy Friday!

Temper Temper! 30/11/2017.

 

Thursday, November 30, 2017.

 The Moon is  in Aries before it transit Taurus.

Mars opposes Uranus.

With the Moon still  in Aries this morning, you may find yourself energetic and quick to act with courage or force. You may notice a desire to take risks, or a feeling of being more egotistical that normally would not appeal to you. Later this afternoon the Moon enters grounded Taurus. Bringing a steadfast calm and grounded energy to our personal and emotional environment. The Moon feels at home in Taurus and so will we, getting all cosy with the added bonus of indulging in the finer things in life sch as comfort food, wine and cheese and relaxing. However, we can have the tendencies to over indulge so if your watching your weight for Christmas and New Years don’t give too much into temptation today!

Early this morning, the Moon makes aspects to both dynamic Mars and eccentric unexpected Uranus. You tend to be focused on yourself and may be impatient with others and easily angered. We also may find our selves getting easily agitated and quite tense. Tempers could flare up today and we can act very impulsive and reckless. It’s a great day to take care with your actions and words. Even if you feel restricted or get confronted by others and their words today, center yourself and find balance there is not point throwing oil onto a fire. On a more positive note. this can be a time of more courage to free ourselves from certain restrictive situations we have been struggling with and to help us to push ourselves to break out of the routine and try new things.

 

Happy Thursday!

at 12:26am mars in libra quincunxes retrograde chiron in pisces- creating tension and friction between the will, warrior and drive and the Wounded Healer planetoid. mars/chiron brings up deep old wounds and pain around our masculine sides or around men in our lives. any issues around anger, aggression, taking action, taking a stand, saying no or setting boundaries can arise for us to face today. both libra and pisces are signs that tend to over focus on others at the expense of the self. not losing the self in others and being able to set and maintain boundaries is key for personal health as well as the health of any relationships we may be in. it’s a great day to be in therapy or getting body work. any healing modalities utilized today can assist you in getting into your core wound- not so you can stay stuck there but so that you can truly feel ALL if it and release the Unconscious hold it has on you.

Early today, it can be difficult to assert ourselves effectively without provoking, annoying, or concerning others. The trick is to combine both sensitivity and directness instead of going for either/or. The Moon continues its transit of independent, competitive Aries until 3:39 PM EST, after which its transit of Taurus may help settle us down. However, we’re building to a Mars-Uranus opposition, exact tomorrow morning, that’s potentially quite tense and can stimulate impatience. Tempers can flare and a tendency to take careless risks or jump into premature action is possible. We tend to challenge situations that make us feel restricted or people if they seem to be trying to hold us back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Positively, this can be a time of more courage to free ourselves from restrictive circumstances or to push ourselves to break out of the routine and try new things. Confrontations may help clear the air.

Me stubborn? Not at All! Astrological Forecast 29/11/17.

Wednesday, November 29, 2017.

Today brings with it a free-flowing, trine aspect between the feisty Aries Moon and the idealistic Sagittarius Sun. This fully engaged fire energies in the air today will be very affirmative, driven and an expressive day… Especially for those who have planets between 6° – 8° of the Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius). This trine between the Sun and Moon helps us keep our emotions and intentions positively aligned.

By this evening the aggressive, impatient Aries Moon forms a challenging square aspect with powerful, transformative Pluto. This Moon’s square to Pluto can cause conflict between the part of us that wants to push ahead and break through obstacles and the logic part of us needing to use strategy. Power struggles and dynamics can also happen late this afternoon. You are probably best off working on your own today, although early in the day, it will be easier to take others into consideration. It would also be wise if you felt the need to assert your self, assert control or you start to feel hot-headed, passive-aggressive and impatient with others, to spend the evening alone or allow a lot of space to all concerned, especially with all this impulsive energy floating around.

Allow clarity and confidence to embrace you today as this courageous Aries Moon grows toward a clever and inquisitive Gemini Full Moon on Sunday. Find a balance between sensitivity and assertiveness today and remember if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.

 

Happy Hump day!

A Serious Tone to today! 28/11/17!

 

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017.

Mercury in Sagittarius conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius.

In the early hours of this morning, a new cycle begins between Mercury and Saturn join together as they bring your attention to conversations, effort and work. This means we are getting in a serious committal frame of mind. Both planets are in the last degrees of Sagittarius, which means we are being asked to look at very significant issues from the perspective of our highest understanding. We see Mercury turning retrograde on Sunday, and then we see this aspect between them both happen again on January 13th 2018. During this time we are being asked and been given time to contemplate the serious intent involved in regards to our lives, work and life lessons.

Saturn enters Capricorn on December 20th, 2017. This means we will be called to   stabilize our thinking, really focus and get clear on what direction you want to go in regards to your work, growth, and your greater understanding of yourself and the world.When they join together in January, they’ll be in the early degrees of Capricorn and asking that we go to a deeper place of  responsibility and integrity!

Mercury represents our rational mind, communication and our everyday expression. If you have your birth chart yo can see where Mercury sits in to have a deeper understanding of what makes you curious, and what areas of life mentally appeal and stimulate you. Mercury in your chart reveals how you get your point across and in what style. Saturn is the Master planet, that is the teacher of life lessons and karma! When these two form a conjunction it shows up in our life areas that require responsibility, contemplative, and seriousness. This aspect activates our logical minds, we will seek a higher meaning and information and wont worry our time on superficial matters. We are goal orientated and focus on realistic outcomes instead of fanciful dreams with this planetary aspect. However this aspect’s shadow side, we can be over focused and obsessed with the detail, work and the bigger picture. We become OCD and overlooking the effect we have on others in regards to our actions in reaching these goals. We get hung up on making mistakes or failing! During this period try to look at the bright side when things don’t work out and learn to laugh at your own mistakes and take some time out to laugh and enjoy life. Don’t become to over focused and obsessed on the big picture that you lose sight on why you begun it in the first place!

 

Happy Tuesday!

Pay Attention to your Words! 24/11/17.

 

Friday, November 24, 2017.

Mercury in Sagittarius squares retrograde Chiron in Pisces.

Mercury in Sagittarius squares retrograde Chiron in Pisces. This transit is worthy of our attention today as it will bring tension between our conscious mind and our intellect with the Wounded Healer! This early morning challenging square aspect with Mercury, the planet of communication and our thoughts to Chiron, who represents that part of us to do with deep wounds and the healing of ones self has the potential to stir up unwanted energy and mishaps.

With this aspect  in play today, your communications could hurt or on a positive note could heal. Our minds are restless, and some may be difficult to read the intentions behind what is being said, or interpreted, misunderstandings and communication breakdowns can occur, so clarity is vitally important.

Chiron has the magic ability to allow old wounds to arise and pain can get triggered in the mind, as well as our self  communication and communication with others! Watch your thoughts, your actions, your words, your intentions, beliefs and perceptions. Check to make sure you are not misunderstanding others or being misunderstood. Staying open to not knowing is actually the key, keep a clear mind and detach from outcomes is the true wisdom and understanding to getting through today! If you don’t have anything nice to say… don’t say anything at all. If you are feeling the pressure today, find a healthy outlets for emotions and feelings.

 

Just a heads up we do have  Mercury’s upcoming retrograde happening on the 2/12/17. This is also the 1st of 3 Mercury/Chiron aspects occurring over the next few months. Keep this in mind and pay attention to incoming information, repetitive situations and communications that are arising up right now, as they will be something you are meant to be healing and dealing with on this Mercury/Chiron journey with in the coming couple of months.

 

Happy Friday!

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017.

The Moon enters Aquarius.

The Sun in Sagittarius sextiles the Moon in Aquarius.

 Venus in Scorpio semisextiles Mars in Libra.

 

The Moon leaves hard-working Capricorn and enter innovative, creative and humanitarian Aquarius. You may notice that you are charged and that you are not as attached to your own emotions, you think and feel in a more progressive way and are able to be more objective regarding situations and circumstances you find yourself in today. Aquarius is an energy that likes to live outside the box, a little rebellious and future orientated. Today put your wildest, wackiest and creative foot forward.

Today this quirky Aquarius Moon forms a lovely harmonizing sextile to the adventurous, fun seeking Sagittarius Sun. This gives us an opportunity and an opening to an evening of events, people, of visionary explorations and cultures. Maybe its a good time to sit down with a friend, partner or yourself and plan a trip that incorporates all of the above!

Venus in Scorpio semisextiles Mars in Libra. Goodness of love and beauty and the God of our will and drive meet today, and what no better energy than when these two meet up in the sky for a passionate, harmonious dance! This connection between divine lovers makes today great for loving relationships, passion and creativity! Today with Scorpio and Libra energy it’s about deepening and strengthening your current relationships, to learn, grow and understand where each other come from. Make an effort to engage with loving relationships , business relationships and friendships.

 

Happy Thursday!

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!
