Astrology

“The essential purpose of astrology…is not so much to tell us what we will meet on our road, as it is to suggest how to meet it – and the basic reason for the meeting. Which quality in us, which type of strength is needed to go through any specific phase of our total unfoldment as an individual person”.

Pisces Super Full Moon, August 29th, 11:35 AM PST ~ Emotional Breakthroughs

mercuryretrograde

Pisces is the sign of water and includes all those elements that are vast and unfathomable, such as our intuition and our capacity for love. Super moons are more potent than average full moons because of the close proximity to earth. This one may have us feeling our realizations in an almost cathartic and heavily climactic way. With Neptune sitting next to the Full Moon it diffuses and dissolves any obstacle to the free flow of our feelings and emotions, it can certainly open the doors of our perception, bringing an influx of spiritual energies. There is a lot more at stake in terms of emotional breakthroughs and development. In order to do that though we are going to need to do more than just tread through our emotions, we are going to need to swim the hell out of them—like our lives depend on it. There is a difference between hiding under a rock and being in a time out—we have to make the conscious choice to sit with life as it is right now—no hiding, and no lying to ourselves this time. The opposition to the Sun in Virgo conjunct Jupiter, offers us the opportunity to ground the Piscean oceanic emotions and feelings into earthy practical compassion. With Jupiter emphasizing the Virgoan qualities of efficiency and synthesis through meaningful service rather than sacrifice, we are invited to turn unconditional love into practical action for the benefit of all.

Full Moon in Capricorn - July 1st/2nd ~ Crisis or Opportunity

mercuryretrograde

The Full Moon in Capricorn can imbue a highly ambitious energy. Capricorn represents the peak of adulthood and the development of autonomy, success, responsibility,and integrity especially in the eyes of the public. Capricorn comprehends its duty and goals and has the discipline and dedication necessary to achieve its objectives. Pluto’s conjunction with the Moon in Capricorn illuminates the shadow side of both Cancer and Capricorn — the unsustainable path of taking care of everyone else but ourselves.. Mars conjoins the Sun in Cancer, stressing the call for the supportive, safeguarding masculine side, rather than the domineering, power obsessed traits of the stubborn and insistent shadowy Capricorn. Assertive Mars also forms a wide opposition to Pluto which can give us the fortitude to face our fears, transmute our shadow, and release what no longer serves our evolution. Venus will conjunct Jupiter in Leo just before the peak of this Full Moon and will be in conjunction until August, enticing the stern and serious to enjoy more pleasure and play, bring more love and meaning, greater happiness and fun into our lives.

Full Moon in Sagittarius - June 2 ~ Big Visions.

mercuryretrograde

The Full Moon in the exploratory and raucous sign of Sagittarius contrasts and opposes with the intellectually sharp and quick Mercury Retrograde in Gemini. This Full Moon helps us to not only welcome the month of June- the midway point through the year, it also highlights the dance of Neptune and Saturn and Mercury Retrograde. Just be mindful however, with Neptune and Mercury Retrograde energies present, the difference between operating out of left-brain rationality and intuition/feeling is very pronounced. Be aware of fantasy. This is a highly idealistic Sagittarius Moon. Rather than over-indulging in substances such as alcohol, drugs or over-eating, feel into the emotions and support yourself through it. Be present with things as they may reveal insights to you. We are almost past retrograde Mercury’s conjunction with the Sun, so we can set goals and plan our meetings and events with more confidence again. There is lots of electric and creative energy stirring but we must meet it with grounded discernment. It is easy to blur the lines between fact and fiction. You may feel unstoppable. Be ready to take on your dreams… Watch out for over confidence, it is easy to burn out.

Mercury retrograde in Gemini May 18 - June 11 ~ Time to process

mercuryretrograde

This can be one of the more powerful retrogrades of the year as Mercury rules Gemini. This is the perfect Mercury retrograde for detoxing and travelling somewhere exotic or a retreat of some kind especially if there is plenty of sunshine. The excellent communication and intellectual skills of this sign and planet may be blunted as minds turn inward to reflect and review. The standard Mercury retrograde recommendations to double-check data, equipment, and details will be in effect through June 11. Because of its retrograde motion, the mythic Messenger of the Gods Mercury will remain in Gemini from April 30 to July 8, giving us extra time to rethink, revamp, or release what’s not working especially in terms of communication, ideas, innovation and technology. However, with Mercury retrograde, this might be more about reconnecting with people, places, and ideas from the past than starting new projects.This is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.

Scorpio Full Moon - Sunday, May 3 at 8:42PM PST ~ Built up passion.

fullmoonscorpio

This is the Full Moon that coincides with a Leo Jupiter that will exactly square the Sun and Moon. Jupiter aspects have a magnifying or exaggerating effect, and that’s extra true in Leo. Most Full Moons feel like a cresting wave or pronounced build-up of tension, pressure, emotion or passion as it is. Jupiter squares are known to be pretty friendly, because they’re energizing and usually optimistic, it can be a profound influence. This t-square involving fixed signs demands the breakdown of long-standing patterns of our early conditioning and the necessity of questioning our social, religious, and cultural programming. So much of our perceptions are heavily filtered by our past experiences, beliefs, and the associations we hold in our unconscious.Hiding our discontent is a common reaction. However, exuberant Jupiter will not be silenced. We may either speak in overly optimistic voices of denial or use honesty to heal mistrust and fear. Taurus sun seeks comfort and stability; it represents our values, resources, and self-esteem. Scorpio moon craves challenge and transformation; it symbolizes where we wrestle both with our deepest desires and with our worst fears. Fortunately, Pluto is trine the Sun and sextile the Moon, we have the capacity to transform even the most intense drama into a source of strength and inspiration that can help us face challenges from the depths of inner wisdom. It is good during this full moon to stay in touch with our feelings and deepen our relationship with our unconscious mind.

Uranus square Pluto

The FINAL exact square between Uranus and Pluto is occurring as we speak. This dramatic event is the seventh and last in a series of epic squares that began in 2012, which has been causing the global, political, and personal unrest we've been experiencing over the last few years. The moon now in Aquarius and opens minds to new perspectives on emotions and habits that don’t fit into the intellectually orderly box of Mercury square Saturn. A more flexible way to take care of business is supplied by Moon Sextile Saturn. This combination cerebral discipline and emotional discovery provides a favorable foundation for dealing with Uranus Square Pluto. The exact timing of the exact square needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but this could be a critical period to set the stage for personal and collective transformation. Aquarian objectivity can help us to accept new and strange patterns that can rock our worlds on the way to new and different realities. This 7th exact square indicates that we have reached a point in our evolution when we have to make a conscious choice about how we're going to live the rest of our lives. Can we let go of our personal and cultural stories of need and greed, violence and sex, power and domination, inequality and death, them and us? Or can we step into quantum theory's new paradigm that states that we actually do create our own reality? That new seed has grown into a deep-rooted plant these last three years as we've gone on the hero's journey, working to overcome the obstacles to incorporating this new vision into our personal consciousness as well as into the collective consciousness of the world. Now that new life calls us to be of service as we learn to be co-creators of Life.

New Moon in Aquarius - January 20th ~ Exploring Dreams

New Moon in Aquarius

The Aquarius Super Moon is at zero degrees. This energy represents new beginnings. This New Moon brings a fresh energy into all social situations. Connections to Mercury and Venus add a sweet, friendly quality that will help you get to know someone new better, or provide meaningful support to a friend. Mars and Neptune are separating from a conjunction in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius. This presents the challenge to persevere in the face of the unknown, in the face of fear. This New Moon is barely in Aquarius, occurring at 0°8′ with the Moon only a quarter-hour out of Capricorn. This sets the stage for a rare second Aquarian New Moon in February, and invites consideration of how the energies of Capricorn and Aquarius can be helpfully integrated. But a little creative thinking can go a long way in helping them work together harmoniously. Think big and dream bigger! Make your plans for the upcoming year but it is best to wait until after Mercury Retrograde is over mid February before you can act on them..

Saturn in Sagittarius - December 23rd of 2014 until December 19th 2017 ~ Curbing Excess.

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn and Sagittarius are strange bedfellows, because Sagittarius is the sign of optimism and expansion, while Saturn is all about restriction and harsh reality checks. But this blending of opposites could actually strike a healthy balance. Over the past two years of Saturn in Scorpio you may have seen various themes in your life around letting go, surrender, loss of control and getting deep into ones own issues around trust, addictions, inner values and fears and transforming these issues into great strengths. If you faced these with courage and acknowledged responsibility for your own actions then the next two years can be very fruitful! Saturn in Sagittarius can be associated with a profound and penetrating mind. The more conscious individual can express this quality to a greater degree. There is a great possibility of finding some very valuable answers to broad and deep questions but they must be found within rather than from outside influences. If you’re one of the four mutable signs—Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces—this Saturn cycle will have the strongest impact on you. Get ready to see major structures in your personal and/or professional life take on a whole, mature new shape. A love of culture, learning and reading may be the saving grace for many who experience Saturn’s transit through the sign of freedom and exploration of a higher purpose in the cosmos. As far as widespread knowledge goes, this will be a game changer, that much is sure. The opportunity which Saturn offers here is connected with a potential for more direct intuitive perception of the wholeness and meaning of your inner psyche and this perception is what depth psychology calls 'peak experience'. Ideals and Ethics come into the forefront and Saturn will not tolerant others authority or domineering tactics. All Moral and ethical values lie within and while realizing these concepts are relative there still is a responsibility to serve the greater whole. On one side lies the the relinquishment of ones dreams and on the other the struggle against authority. Once balanced, there exists a freedom which a Sagittarius expresses most easily ~ Joy.

Uranus square pluto - December 15th

Uranus Square Pluto

This is the sixth of seven exact squares Uranus square Pluto, lasting all of December. Old structures and routines may become outdated and whatever the circumstances, you will be called on to evolve, and evolve rapidly in order to meet the challenges presented by the disruptive Uranus square Pluto transit. The powerful forces driving the changes in your life are most likely out of your control, but how you react is not. A considered and methodical approach is best, with impulsive actions not advised. As many of your friends of the same age group will be experiences similar upheaval in their lives, sharing stories and support can be of great assistance during this year or two. The secret to a good outcome is in recognizing that something deep within you is seeking expression and you need to be open to new experiences and different life perspectives without resistance. We are standing on the edge of a historical shift. We're already getting a taste of big changes to come: The housing, insurance and bank failures, the Occupy movement, concern for the environment and overall economic uncertainty. These things signal the beginning of a shift toward a great awakening of consciousness. There will likely be much upheaval on the road to progress, but it will be for the ultimate good. This is the time to break bad habits and old patterns, and be open to the coming changes. Both Uranus and Pluto are about change yes, but Pluto’s transformation can fester underground forever until Uranus’s lightening bolt hits it just at the right spot. The process is rather like the thunderstruck tower of the tarot. The rebuilding of that which has been devastated can take a while. It is not a quick fix.
