The Moon moves into Cancer.

 The Sun in Taurus semisextiles Chiron in Aries

The Moon moves through its home sign of Cancer, creating an urge in us for a sense of belonging, deep love and affection. As the Moon settles into this nurturing tender sign, we find we are domestic and want to be around people we love and enjoying the finer things such as a good book, cooking a meal or satisfying our emotional needs with wine, food or a good laugh with friends. Today, cuddle with your pet,  and cook for someone you love or just simple call an old friend up for a catch up.

The Sun in Taurus semisextiles Chiron in Aries. Bringing us to a lovely alignment of our ego with the wounded healer. This is our first planetary aspect with Chiron in his new sign. Today it would be wise to pay attention to the path of your own healing. What new information is coming in, are you gaining new insights, experiencing new emotions, new ways of thinking? What is being revealed to you right now? Pay attention!

Happy Friday!

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.

Mercury Stations Direct and we have a New Moon in Aries.

Sunday, April 15th, 2018.

Mercury Stations Direct.

New Moon in Aries.

New Moon will conjunct Uranus.

By the time we awake on Sunday morning, Mercury, the communication planet, that also rules our thought processes and travel plans stations direct at 4° Aries. Making the planet of communication and technology one of the most powerful planet in the sky. Over the next few days we will feel the energy and the pace of life pick up speed. Communications and projects become clear, we are now safe to move forward with our ideas and new projects. Sign that mortgage document, make those travel plans straighten out any mishaps with friendship and laughter and sigh it is all over for now…

Everything that Mercury rules over for the past few weeks has been muddled up, misinterpreted, we have experienced miscommunications or breakdowns. Some had conflict with others, technology issues, documentation issues and just general issues. These restrictions have been brought to the surface for us to deal with. Those delays, interruptions and breakdowns have been a lesson for us to iron out the smaller details, to heal or change something, be aware that these “issues” won’t go away until we have faced with them.

Yay we have a  New Moon at 26o Aries. This is commencing the New Lunar cycle for the zodiac. This New Moon will thrust us into a new cycle that is focused on action, bringing down obstacles, freedom and change! New Moon’s traditionally are a time of birthing ideas, planting seeds of intention, manifesting our desires and goals. It provides us with a new fresh beginning. New Moon’s are always a rejuvenating fresh start, a mini face or soul lift if you like because they allow you to start over again. This New Moon being in the fire sign of Aries, a part of us will ignite and we are encouraged to make the changes we have secretly been wanting to begin for a while now.

It’s a time to think bigger, be bigger and see yourself in a new light! Feel the power of the Ram who knocks down any and all obstacles to get what they want in life, especially if it is to do with making the changes that we have always desired. We will all in some way feel the wave of this New Moon energy that is going to be helping all of us to create some much-needed changes in our lives.

Aries is all about attitude, so making the necessary changes will begin with just that.. your attitude! By shifting our attitude we can start to put out the right vibrations to help us manifest our dreams. By simply taking a look at our self, our thoughts, beliefs or attitudes around a situation and by addressing them you will be in a much better position to make productive and lasting changes. Take a deep look at what is not working in your internal and external world. Start by looking on the inside and shift your beliefs and thoughts to a more positive aspect. You will be surprised on the snowball effect it will have!

This weekend put some time aside and get dreaming. Draw in the Aires energy and incorporate those into your New Moon wish list. Use the Aries stamina, competitiveness, confidence and strength to spark your soul. Over the next few days it is the perfect time refocus your energy, to set your intentions, and forgive yourself if needed.

The vibrations you send into the universe will come back to you, and this energy you are putting out will slowly build and intensify over the course of the next few weeks until we reach the next Full Moon, where you’ll reap what you’ve sowed. Plant those positive seeds!

This New Moon will conjunct Uranus. Uranus is the cheeky rebellious planet the Great Awakener  and is very revolutionary! Which means this New Moon will be extra exceptional for massive change!

This New Moon you will be unstoppable, embrace it.

Happy New Moon wishing!

Power Struggles. April 11th 2018.

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018.

The Sun conjuncts Pluto.

The Moon enters Pisces.

Today brings with it a necessary need to take action on a significant issue or situation.  On January 9, 2018, the annual cycle between the Sun and Pluto began. This is a cycle is one of intense self empowerment. What with any change it can bring about either destruction or the growth of your full potential. This influence can drive us in many directions, and we may feel lost in the process, pulled into different directions, question whether you start a fresh or move in a new direction. If powerful forces are working against you, try to be fully conscious of exactly where you plant your feet today. look for the support of people you love and just be cautious as this energy can stir up a lot of restlessness.

 Your loved ones need you more than you may realize today. Make yourself available.

By lunchtime the Moon enters dreamy and sensitive Pisces. Whatever the issues that are arising, with this much softer energy that is coming through, your problems will  look a lot less harsh and uncompromising as you regain your emotions throughout the day! A lovely overlay of a gentle, soft and surreal presence enters to soften the blow on any hard times.

Happy Hump Day!

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!

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!

Retrograde Mercury squares Saturn in Capricorn.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Retrograde Mercury squares Saturn in Capricorn. Causing some unwanted tension between our intellect and communication and the planet of Karma and Lessons. You can probably anticipate an early morning disagreement or worse an argument this morning if you do not watch out. This disagreement may not only be with another person but it could happen internally. Mercury in Aries is very much “I want” and ” I am going to say what I think is right”  Head butting with the Teacher and Master of structure, saying well no this is how it is going to be. This aspect could be great for reigning in your ego. The key for today is…  You must aim to not just say things or do things before thinking of the long-term consequences. Push through your sense of reluctance that Saturn will be bestowing on you today, by thinking things through on an objective level.

The day can only get better from there, and it does! For the rest of the day, you should be in relatively high spirits feeling seen and appreciated in this magical world. This is due to the Moon being in lively Sagittarius all day. The energy is lightened and the mood is tainted with a go and get them approach. You are fun and thrill seeking and are attracted to new situations especially if it means a new conquest. Remember, in all of your interactions with others keep your spirits as bubbly as possible and don’t forget to share the good positive vibes around. 

 

Happy Thursday!

Watch Your Words and Reactions 04/04/18.

Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Mars in Capricorn squares Mercury Retrograde.

By the time your day begins, the Moon has entered adventurous Sagittarius bringing a bit of liveliness to the table. When the Moon is in playful Sadge, we are adventure seeking, social and willing to learn about the world around us! Unfortunately, that fun-loving energy is contradicted by an irritable and not so friendly square between aggressive Mars and Retrograde Mercury.

Retrograde Mercury squares Mars in Capricorn. As I have mentioned this will cause some friction between our will and drive and our intellect and communication! Mercury being in retrograde means that we are not thinking things through methodically or issue’s are being brought up to the surface that we need to deal with, ad into the mix the power of our ego and drive and we have a very impulsive, reactive day! Be careful of your conversations, take time to consider what is about to come out of your thoughts and mouth. Watch out for tempers flaring, impulse behaviors, and over reacting. Do not let others temper tantrums get to you! This square aspect also causes common conflict between your responsibilities and  those things you would like to spend the day on.

Try and have a peaceful day!
