Dreamy Friday 16/06/2017

Friday June 16th, 2017.

The Moon is in Pisces.

Neptune goes Retrograde.

This is a time for the energy to be easing up a little, as the Moon spends the day in dreamy Pisces and aligns with Pisces’ modern ruler, Neptune, which is stationing retrograde today.

Neptune is the planet of dreams and inspiration, it is a water planet. It is represented as King Neptune in mythology the ruler of the seas and is related to the high priestess in the tarot. So with all this water energy , Neptune rules our dreams, emotions, intuition and in particularity our ability to manifest . We will have access to all the universal knowledge and being in touch with your collective unconscious. We are passive and ready to receive those message, gut feels and that wisdom of the universe.

When Neptune stations retrograde the energy seems to go backwards, which means it is even more passive. What happens is that you become more intuitive, you become in tune with your own self and the spiritual and creative guidance you receive will increase. You will have the capability to hear the messages meant for you from the universe loud and clear , heightened insights , heightened receptivity and  guidance for the next coming 5 months,until November 22nd pretty awesome hay! The rest of the year really tune in , listen to the guidance that is being given to you, dreams, repetitive thoughts, feelings, ideas, this is the key to getting the best out of 2017!

Over the next 5 months we see a rise in personal creativity and output. let the creative juices flow and inspiration energy is high, so pay attention all you writers, artist and healers. Those who work with the spiritual realm, if you feel that you are one that can channel spiritual information do so! Especially when it comes to putting into your work, projects and art.

However, Neptune governs the veils but he also governs the mists of confusion.The retrograde cycle can be a time of indecision or feeling in limbo, but it can also be a period of inner discovery. This can also be a period of time a sensitive and perhaps confusing one.

Happy day dreaming!

The Mood lightens! Daily grind 16/05/2017

Tuesday, May 16, 2017.

Mercury is in Taurus.

The Moon enters Aquarius.

The Sun in Taurus quincunxes retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius.

As I mentioned yesterday Mercury left hotheaded Aries behind to enter grounded, reliable Taurus. If you keep thinking that you thought Mercury had already been in Taurus , well you where right. Mercury initially entered Taurus on March 31st, 2017 but proceeded to turn retrograde back into fiery Aries where it has remained until now.

So lets recap about Mercury being in retrograde, anything that we have been sitting on or put on the back burner in Mercury retrograde that required reviewing, reconsidering, revising, and to be analyzed (which is what Mercury retrograde is great for) are now ready to be pushed forward.

Mercury is in Taurus, your thinking is slower, it has the patience so look for new inspiration, use the Taurus energy and take slow, deliberate steps to manifest your desires and dreams. Your approach to life, in general, is more relaxed unlike quick thinking and hot-headed energy of Aires your thoughts and plans can be seen from a new perspective of simplicity and clarity.

The Moon leaves serious hard-working Capricorn and moves into progressive Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign, it’s very much about communication, the atmosphere and energy is now lighter we get a boost of enthusiasm. We are beginning to lighten up,as yesterday we were grounded with the bull energy of Taurus and very grounded. Aquarius is lighter and up in the air, full of ideas and dreaming.

The Sun in Taurus quincunxes retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius.This means for us we will become more interested in learning, in science, life and facts. Its great time for receiving high Frequency information that we want to have. We are eager to implement all this new information into your daily routine. However just be careful not to rush into all these new ideas and learning strategies straight away!!!!  There is tendency that we can be rushing into things without all the facts so just be aware especially if you are committing to anything! Just read the facts and be sure that’s what you want. This Sun/Saturn relationship reminds us to slow down and think before we speak and act. Reality Check yourself if needed.

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!

Communications Become Clear 04/05/17

Thursday, May 4, 2017.

The Moon enters Virgo.

The Moon in Virgo squares Mars in Gemini.

When you get up this morning, you may be aware of the emotional shift that happened while you slept. Today the Moon left playful, dramatic Leo and entered competent,hard-working, efficient Virgo.

The Moon in Virgo than squares Mars in Gemini. This is an amazing day! First of all Virgo is ruled by Mercury , and as we know Mercury rules communication, so today with this Virgo energy we are all about taking in information, and making sense of it. When the Moon squares ( or forms a relationship) with Mars in Gemini, we must remember Gemini is also ruled by Mercury and Gemini’s energy is all about putting information out there,expressing yourself and communicating clearly with others. So it’s almost like the universe and astrology is making up to us, the fact we have been in Mercury retrograde because this is day is ALL about communication! It’s wonderful to clean up any communication mishaps or issues that appeared during Mercury retrograde, make amendments and tick that box and be done with it all , resolve any problems and move forward.

Happy Thursday!

Are you suffering symptoms of Mercury Retrograde?

Yes , we are in a Mercury Retrograde, and yes it moved back into Aries last week where it will stay in this sign until May 16th (Although Mercury’s retrograde will end on May 3rd).

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.

The New Moon is in Taurus than enters Gemini.

The Moon trines Pluto and sextiles Chiron and Venus.

Today the New Moon is in Taurus until late tonight when it enters Gemini. The Moon trines Pluto in Capricorn and sextiles Chiron and Venus in Pisces. Focus on what actions you personally can take that will make things better in a physical sense both yourself and for others. It’s about really thinking about yourself, how you feel, what you want and how you want things to be and taking the actions to reach these goals. The energy is has been settling into a more grounded and earthy motion is now building so the question is what do you want to create? The Moon/Venus aspect will also bring some lovely energy for deepening into emotions and connecting heart to heart with others or your self if needed.

Speaking of being creative, how did you go with your New Moon wishes yesterday? The New Moon took place yesterday, so that means we are still in the New Moon phase, it’s still a good time to make your wishes if you didn’t already.

Have a great day!

New Moon in Taurus! 26/04/2017

Wednesday, April 26, 2017.

Today’s New Moon is at 6° Taurus

Happy New Moon day!

I love a New Moon, the energy itself is fantastic! What an exciting time to plant seeds of intention, to dream of ideas to grow, to creatively use the energy of the sign its in to help manifest and work on yourself and what you want to achieve. Nothing feels as good as writing a bucket or to do list and ticking it of once achieved!

Today the New Moon is at 6° in the sign of Taurus. Today we see both the Sun and the Moon in Taurus. Wow a lot of the earthy, practical energy is being pulled in this New Moon. You will feel very grounded and seek security, you will find you can be reluctant to make changes, you will be interested increasing the luxuries in your life, you will have an urge to invest your time in beautiful things and creating that feeling within. Physical health, financial security, creativity will be high on your list this month.

Reconnecting with the seasons is a strong theme this month, for us down in the southern hemisphere it’s the Autumn feel, the smell in the air, it’s the beauty of the leaves falling, it’s a time we seek warmth and want to snuggle and nest. The northern hemisphere its spring and a time of growth and rebirth, the plants are blossoming, it’s the warmth, nutrition and a chance to grow and create opportunities in your life.

Use the Taurus energy that is being pulled in and towards us this lunar cycle. Now the Moon and Sun are at 6 degrees today and well the number vibration of six is all about temporary opportunities opening up for us, so this New Moon draws in new opportunities. here are a few areas in which will be highlighted.

The energy is tinged with career energy and if you can take a few moments today or tomorrow and think about what is going on with your job, what new opportunities would you like ,what changes need to be made, what new project or idea do you want to work on and are you happy in your current position. Just taking that time to figure out what you want and if you are happy were you are will give you so many positive downloads to work on and with and land you in the position you want to be!

The New Moon in Taurus is great at making a financial plan. Use this Moon to sit down and make a long list , as well as take a good hard look at your finances, savings, property, cash and possessions. There is no better time to think about were you are  financially and where you would like to be by the end of the year… What small savings can you achieve weekly to help towards the bigger picture and your end goals.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in this upcoming cycle. For the Taurus New Moon ritual, set an intention regarding the ability to steadfastly build or grow something. It’s a wonderful time to commit to personal goals, especially physical goals. It’s time to enjoy life’s simple pleasure, stop and smell the roses step into mother nature and appreciate the beauty all around us and the small miracles that happen daily.

Happy New Moon wishing and have a great 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!

The Moon is in Scorpio.

The Moon opposes Mars in Taurus, sextiles Pluto in Capricorn quincunxes the Sun in Aires and Uranus in Aires.

Good Morning! We are still in the Full Moon phase in Scorpio! This Full Moon forms lots of relationships today. The Moon opposes Mars in Taurus, sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, quincunxes the Sun in Aires and Uranus in Aires . Wow what a powerful day to get things done and done your way.. Today has the energy that is all about what you want, when and how you what it, and how you get it. However there is a huge potential for conflict today, think about it if you have those attitudes today .Clashing and bumping heads with others is likely to happen today. Today there is opportunity for us to be inpatient, stubborn, head strong and unwilling to uncompromising. Remember to add to all this that the Full Moon energies are also intense. so just remember to BREATH!

Allow yourself to rest in a space of emotional connection, depth, and empowerment throughout the morning with all this intense energies around.Try to get some serious exercise or any activity to get some of this excess energy built up, follow that with a hot bath, a massage and a cup of tea, and get to bed early to avoid drama and stress!

Don’t forget this energy is not automatically a negative. It can show up as excitement  just as easily as unsettled anxiety.

Happy Thursday and have a great Easter.
