VENUS square JUPITER
I generally, think and feel anything that involves Venus and Jupiter is good. With Venus coming off here hit with Pluto which was, well just too much, felt like unraveling or coming undone? Here she is leveling out somewhat, helping you find some center or slightly clearer view.
Use this to level out your emotions, try to feel good. Depending on how the past two weeks have been, you may be real good :)) or just good :/. This may give you time to just lift your head a little from the madness.
 
Good day for socializing, anything that makes you feel good. Keep in mind that Jupiter likes to expand things, so you may go overboard or take it all to far.
Particularly in areas of Love, money, beauty, attraction or relationship.

Moon moves into Cancer early tomorrow, she will move through her third quarter phase, this is the beginning of the end phase, parts are dying off and bits remain, then balsamic phrase, parts are still dying off, and you are waiting to see what is left for you to use, plant and work with, waiting for the new to emerge, this is a real going inward phrase, before she moves into Leo for the big new moon eclipse

MOON in Gemini, square Mercury Rx in Virgo, and Neptune in Pisces. Mercury opposite Neptune.

With Moon in Gemini aspect Mercury take the time out to go over your choices, decision you have made or go over what is happening now. Have a new look, slow down to review. That is the Mercury Rx, time to reflect, review. Mercury in Virgo, be discerning, look at the details, be realistic in your approach.

Neptune does make this all a little difficult as it’s a blur, unfocused element. There may be a touch of confusion on how you got here, you have no control, it was out of your grasp, but you thought you had it. Neptune shows you, where you are not seeing clearly, the illusion. Neptune in Pisces, is a bigger picture, you may net see it yet.

Neptune can help for a quiet time to reflect and meditate on all that is happening.

Mercury and many planets are Rx at the moment, so not a lot of really going forward, well, you might feel like you are not moving forward, now with Mercury Rx you may find that it all slows down, and so should you. Get a grip, find the pace that keeps you in the present moment, don’t get too far ahead of yourself.

If you do need to make any decision, take a good look at it, be sure of what you are doing.

VENUS in Cancer opposite PLUTO in Capricorn.
Venus rules, love, money, relationship, self-worth and values.
Pluto rules, sex, power, money, other people, transform and transcends.
And both have control and power struggles going on. Opposition is external, you and your relationship with the outside world, or other people. 
Something you have to face, and it brings up some intense feelings and fear. A culmination of results, things have gone to the highest point, an ending may come, bits have to get released or thrown away.

You may want something from another, it’s a deep longing or need.
There may be power forces of tension or conflict coming from within or an outside/external force.  Projecting your issues onto someone (or they could be projecting onto you), is a big y with this one.

Basically, Venus in Cancer, she will take it more personally, (her security might be attached to something outside of herself,) themes come under the microscope to be looked at, or played out. Within you, it’s about the self-worth, self-esteem, values, love, attraction, are you taking care of you, your needs, your feelings. As you may not get what you want from the other!

Feed yourself.

This may be a sore spot.

Pluto always brings in the intense undercurrent of feelings, raging, stirring from within. Most probably it is coming from an outside force that is stirring your pot.
I always see Pluto’s influence as peeling back the layers of your psyche, emotions are trying to surface to be released and let go of, and it usually is painful and annoying, but however it needs to be done. As it’s right in front of you.

This transit is happening for a day or two.

Yesterday, you had a grand cross and many other aspects going on. Today you have a fire trine, plus Moon will conjunct Uranus.

Trines are harmonious, easy, aspects, with ease you can achieve, being a fire trine, it’s brings in a lighter more passionate feel, be creative, passionate and action you take will be easier and achieve success. The downside is you can be lazy and content with it all. With the Neptune aspects also in harmonious aspects, you may find that the slow and easy road is best.

Sun in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius, brings in some stability, holds it together.

Moon in Aries trine Sun, emotions can be more in tune with each other, some balance can be achieved.

Moon trine Saturn, emotions and being limited may lift a bit here, Saturn usually contracts, keeps it all in, here you may find some release or pressure is off.

Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries, this can bring in the random, surprise element, might spark it all up more.

Mercury is now Rx, that’s kinda slippery, going Rx opposite Neptune, it’s a blur for a few moments. Gotta get a grip.

You are still in between eclipses, keep that in mind, as that is the anything can happen place. Also it is a rough time and spot.

A grand cross is happening over weekend, thanks to the moon being in Aries, which lines it all up. All in cardinal signs, a call for a change and action to happen, you may feel pushed and pulled in many direction. Within yourself and your relationships.

This may be an if your up for it time, if not do/be the Venus trine Nepturn.

Moon in Aries square Pluto and Venus, emotions may be sparky and high, in areas of love, money, relationships. Emotions may run deep and can be in conflict. You can have trouble of letting go here. You want stability, comfort, but no.

Venus in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, these two are quite a nice combo, just don’t go overboard or to far in all Venus things. Love, spending, eating, you know, try some discipline and awareness when out and about.

Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn, a push forward, you want to get somewhere, make a few changes, but it’s a tough gig.

Venus opposite Pluto, most relationship will be tested with this one.

Moon opposite Jupiter, you may want to indulge in whatever makes you feel good, Jupiter does expend all that is touched, Moon in Aries, you are fired up.

  • Floating in the background is

Mercury opposite Neptune – challenging, your mind is not get clear, Neptune makes it unclear, best to hold off on any major decision and keep in mind Mercury is stationing to go Rx, it’s a bit of a mind F**k.

Venus trine Neptune – harmonious, this may get lost with all of the above challenges. You may really just want to float along in dream world.This is a great aspect for love, plus any creative ideas or project, may bring in some visionary ideas. Escape into a good book, be creative, and just chill.

You will still feel the undercurrent of the energies triggering you. There maybe a slight feeling of disappointment, fatigue hanging around. Moon in Aries, you have the urge to keep going.

SUN sextile JUPITER – MARS quincunx NEPTUNE – MERCURY sextile VENUS.

You may feel optimistic, confident and energy is higher. You do feel like you can achieve, and things will be in your favour, turn out alright.

Mars is aspecting Neptune, which brings about the risky, uncertain part. You may feel bold and sure, wish to take some action(Mars) but the Neptune part can let you down or you miss the spot you wanted.

Mercury is nicely aspecting Venus, this does bring a good vibe, be nice, people are easier to get along with. Be sensitive, and practical in your approach today.

Nice day to talk about love. Treat yourself kindly.

Moon is in Pisces, feel your feelings, pray, connect with spirit. Be sure to take some time out for reflection and introspection. Surrender to all that has been happening. Send some love your way.

Full Moon in Aquarius, August 8, 2017!

Yes…..it’s that time again when the eclipses shadows your life. A turning point of fate!

  • Take a step back and detach from the old baggage, past traumas and emotional connections. Allow a space to enter for you to connect or reconnect.

It may be time to really take a look at you and how you see yourself in the world, what is your part, are you really being you. Or have you blended in so much that you are like the rest of the crowd?

Full moon in Aquarius. Take a look at the individual self in context to the self when you are in a group, community, humanity. How do you fit in, define yourself by the group. Aquarius likes the group, humanity and is drawn to this, socializing, friends. But, is not the group, likes to still be an individual, seeks freedom, likes to invent or reinvent the self. Not too much confinement by others, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, after all, resist and the rebel.

How do you mix in, best approach is to be detached somewhat in groups, observe, have a higher perspective and view, don’t be defined by that group, you decide how much is you and how much you want to blend in or be in.

Sun and Mars are in Leo, shining it’s light brightly, time to take action in your individuality, identity, have your own thought, opinion, purpose and goal. Maybe find a new group or friends to play with that are in lineaments to you. A place or group in which you can shine your essence in a natural and authentic way. And, so can everyone else.

  • Basically you have to be yourself now. 

Watch out for the Mars element as some may be to assertive, irritable, rude and just pissed off. Be Leo, take some pride and respect in all that you do here. It may call for some higher ground taking.

Uranus rules Aquarius, so there is a breaking away feel to this eclipse, Uranus is Rx, so change is going to happen. Time to run with a new crowd, put some distance between you and others, have a breathing space for new to come in.

Jupiter is moving away from Pluto(power plays, transformation), Pluto is quincunx  this full moon, so Pluto can still bring an edge to the power games or mood people play. Jupiter’s in a harmonious expect so will smooth some of the way for you.  

Neptune is quincunx too, so some doubt or confusion, may be floating around at this time.  It may be a blur.

Fate –  Fated – Destiny, is here. The North node in Leo, is the place you are heading for. Fun, play, creative expression of you. It is time to shine your light out there into the world. Live, life by the heart. Find your passions and fire. What is it that keeps you going. What brings the fire to your belly. So….. whatever is happening just know that it is in your favor even it does not seem like it or feel like it at the time.

Time to be you, step up and out, live a life with more passion and heart.

JUPITER square PLUTO,

Since Nov these two have been meeting up or clashing, to bring about a deep change and transformation in your life. August 5th is the final phrase for these two. Expansion and transformation is what is being talked about here. This may have caused you to feel like you were being pulled from the inside out. Now is the time to sum it all up and to take stock of how well you are going. Some success and some failure’s for sure. 

You have needed to grow and expand your world, your beliefs, move beyond the old way of moving and being in this life. You have been stretched, and all things have been put under the  magnifying glass for you to see, where and what needs to be transformed, acknowledged, healed and of course the final acceptance of what all that is for you.

Keep in mind that other people, played apart in your growth, they pushed and pulled you to move. Each struggling to maintain some sense of their own worth and center. It was a tangle, mess for a while. You do have a need for power, success and are driven to achieve. Trying to find balance and your equilibrium again. It may have taken the long way, to get you to where you want to go, create and be.

Leave the old persona behind, time now for you to get in touch with your power center and direct your focus and energy to push you through. Direct your focus on moving forward to breakaway from the old ties, that bind you back and hold you in.

Pluto is the intense transformation, rebirth, that the soul is being called to change here. That does however ask you to take a very good, long, deep, honest look at you.

VENUS enters CANCER, You want a deeper, softer, sweeter, nurturing connection. The need for comfort and nurturing will be stronger, forming deeper bonds.

You will want to take your emotions a little deeper. Which can of course make things a little more rocking on the emotional front. You will be seeking love, a tad more serious, you want to take it up notch.
Your likes and dislike will be made from a more emotional feeling space.
She can be moody here.
Good time for some self-love and self-care for yourself and others, being a touch more sensitive to love issues. Or perhaps generally more serious.
You will want to connect with home, family and loved ones.
Venus rules love, money and relationship/partnership.

Moon in Scorpio while Venus is getting ready to dive into her emotion, so today keep your yourself steady.

New Moon in Leo, 23 July, 2017….get your Groove on and Shine!

New Moon in Leo, 23rd July, @7:45:32 pm.

  • Sun conjunct Moon, Conjunct Mars, trine to Chiron, square to Uranus. Venus and Saturn are squaring it up in the background.

Sun and Moon in Leo, Yeah Baby!

Mars comes along with his warrior, brave, ready to get going, take action, amped up energy. All squaring to Uranus which as you know brings in the surprise or unpredictable, I am ready for change now, vibe. Which can just make you feel wobbly and restless.

But, just hold on a tick, try not to be to impulsive or too risky, or over reactive with what comes your way.

This is a starting point a new moon of planting your intention for the next cycle. Leo is about heart, flowing yours, being creative, passionate, but most of all taking action from this place, being passionate and driven for something that will allow you to shine out in the world, no matter what that is. To find your Joy, to be able to be inspired and sparked up about yourself and your life. This is about, you feeling free to be creative especially when it come to expressing yourself, that pure essence of who you are, smiling, being playful, having fun, tapping into the bliss of you. Letting this shine and be seen.  

You want to feel like that you are stepping into a new phrase of life, with a freshness of your being.
Chiron is healing, clearing away all of the old, left over stuff, people, illusions, situation that you hopefully have been working on so you can start with a level of newness and freshness, with a spirit more open and free. Not still bogged down by the burden of the old still on your back. This is important.

Venus is building to a square with Saturn in the background, you may feel a lack or not good enough, try not to over compensate for this feeling if it comes your way, by being loud, to act out, be dramatic, when not getting the attention you want, when you don’t feel special, or you feel rejected, this can just make it all so much worse. Work (Saturn) through whatever this is for you. Take logical, practical, mature approach and steps to bring the healing in. Chiron is in this mix up, healing is available but through the work.
It is Leo energy with fire in the chart, try not to be too proud, filled with too much pride or confidence as it may not serve you in the long run or get you through to the other side.

Sun enters Leo!

original

 

The Sun strides into Leo, sharing the Leo lime light with Mercury, Mars and the North Node. Plus you have a new moon in Leo happening and this is also the beginning point to the eclipse season. 

Express yourself with passion, heart, open to play, fun, lightness, lighten up and laugh. Connect with your purpose, what makes your soul soar and roar, what inspires you, what stirs the fire within.

Leo time, be confident, be creative, radiant and shine. Find ways to be creative, show your talents off. Some may struggle with this energy, others will love the special attention they get during this time. Look at your birth chart to see what areas need attention, what areas need to be sparked up more for you to shine in your own special way.

If you know your birth chart look at it, as this will let you know where all this is going to take place and happen.

SUN square URANUS, SUN trine CHIRON. MERCURY conjunct the NORTH NODE.

The energy is high, things may come as a surprise or be unpredictable, you may find that, it’s within you, you want to breakaway from a troubling spot, or you want to stray away from the routine. Sun burns for you to step out of the old routine or thought pattern of past. Particularly in how you see yourself.

It’s now time for the new. You want something to happen. This inspires your essence, the individual that is you. Shake it all off, don’t risk too much or throw it all away for a moment of release. Well not yet any way.

Chiron and Sun, a healing aspect is happening, allow it to. Tap into it. The sun is shining it’s light on the wound. It may not be as bad as you think it is. Be gentle. What’s in your true nature that can help you heal from all the past pains.

Mercury conjunct the North Node, conversation, thoughts and ideas link into the future. Messages come in to help guide you along the way.

It’s an opening and turning point.
