There’s some intensity in the air, things are changing, perhaps getting clearer perhaps not. You feel like you need to find a way or to know the way, forward. . But you can’t Saturn wants you to pace yourself, look at what’s in front of you. If things feel blocked, they will eventually get unblocked your job now is patience, perseverance.

Mars opposite Neptune – 23-26th, a level of uncertainty in areas of faith, idealism, trust and action can come into play. Neptune brings in the illusion or delusion part, its foggy.
You don’t know yet, which way it goes.

Mercury square Saturn, then opposes Chiron – 25-28th, brings in information, conversations that may bring up some pain, hits the sore spot, Saturn narrow things down, delays, limits, restricts here. Work with the facts, keep calm and keep it real, have a methodical mind during this transit. Also don’t jump ahead of yourself. Watch the negative self talk or talk, mastering your thoughts and mind.

Jupiter quincunx Chiron – 19-27th, making adjustments, maybe having to let go of something or someone. This may also have been an ideal, belief, attitude or even something of truth.
It’s a climb to the mountain top, and to rise you have to let go and change.
Spirit transcends.

Moon in Sagittarius, you are seeking the truth, a way forward, a goal to aim for now.

 

Sun in Libra, 23 Sept, 2017!

 

SUN enters LIBRA

SUN in Libra, into the cardinal air. It’s the half way mark in the zodiac wheel and year, you may be feeling the need and desire to connect more, interact, you are stepping into the external world, coming out of the personal zone and time.

Libra = seeking to find, peace and harmony, getting back to center.

Keep in mind Venus, Mars and Mercury are still in Virgo, perhaps, a bit more work still has to be done. Some things may still need to be wrapped up, cleared away.

New Moon in Virgo, 20th Sept, 2017!

New Moon in Virgo, 20th @3:30 pm (aest)

  • Sun/Moon opposite Chiron, square to Saturn. Mercury ruler of Virgo, conjunct Mars, opposite Neptune.

This is a very Virgo time, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Venus(enters a few hours before the new moon) all in the mutable, earth sign of Virgo.

It’s time to find the thread again, that was lost.

Here you are dealing with life, looking at life through the eyes of a Virgo lens. And you may be struggling with what you see. It might even be a little bit messy, confusing. The Neptune Full Moon, slipped things into the ethers, a lot dissolved, detached, left you with a lost feeling, something left from within you making you feel not so sure now. Neptune might want to keep the chaos alive, keep it stuffed in the cupboards, under the bed, but no, that is not the Virgo way. To sort is the way, come back to earth, to pick up the pieces. Virgo works her magic to help you get clarity, to get clear, by taking the practical, approach. It’s time to get in amongst the mess whether it be in your head, house, relationships, health, daily habits, work, kitchen cupboards. Time to work, look, get organized, make a list, get a plan, and do.

Virgo is here to help you out, she is asking you to clean it all up, she will be logical, practical and very discerning. What to keep and what to throw. What is working or useful to me and most of all to others, as Virgo is about service too. You can only work with what you know, what is true and real and what you have, keep that in mind. Somethings will have to go but not everything.
You would like to make life, work better. You feel the need to clean, remove, sort out the muddle that’s been around you or in your head.

Virgo time is a good time for healing, head, body and soul, take some time out for this.

New Moon hits up with Saturn/Chiron, which brings in another set of challenges for you. Chiron is the sensitive spot, vulnerable, you feel like parts or bits are missing, still floating out there in space, (I think Neptune has taken it out to sea), you may feel like you are not enough, not whole. Saturn sets you to working it out, because you have to, you just have to do the work!, you cannot walk away, from bits yes, but not the lot. That would be unfinished business. Saturn…. not a fan of that!

Mercury ruler of Virgo, opposite Neptune, this brings in the fog, uncertain, element, you’re just not sure of what is really going on here, you stand scratching your head, so communication may be unclear, misunderstanding can happen. Let the universe speak to you, listen. At some point be quiet and listen. Let her pulse through you. Virgo and Pisces is the axis of dream, magic and reality bringing it into physical form. Mars is still conjunct Mercury, taking action may not be clear or easy, bit to fogging perhaps, thanks to Neptune opposite.

If you are feeling like me at the moment and you just do not know what to do, about certain things, just wait, hold off, clean up the bits that you know need to be looked at, sort, sift, release. You will start to feel the new energy of the new moon filter through a few days after, that’s the go point, you are using this Virgo time to get clear, really clear on what you want and what you are doing, it’s been a hazy, daze time between moons, but hopefully you have been listening to the discerning voice within.

Mars in Virgo, 5th Sept, 2017!

mars in virgo

 

MARS into VIRGO, 5th @7:35:38 pm aest, mutable earth, Mars is the urge to act, push yourself, gives you energy and fuel to get things done, get you going and going for it.
*
Mars strides into Virgo, so you can get shit done, he gives you the energy, drive to move ahead. He wants things to work better. It’s time to weed out what is not working and what is, Mars will help you, to take the action where it’s needed. It’s not rushing around impulsively, it’s taking action with technique and using discernment. If you have a goal or purpose at this time use Mars energy to serve you and others.
You can become obsessive in Virgo, wanting it to be perfect. Try and keep that under control, or you will drive yourself nuts in the process, and it won’t ever be good enough.
– Great time to clean out the cupboards
– clean up your routine
– start an exercise program, get healthy.
– change your daily ritual or routine
He will pick your energy levels up so you can change things up. Mars help you to take action in areas that you know need some work, and tidying it all up.
Mars comes along to clean up the mess.

SUN opposite NEPTUNE, MARS, MERCURY, hit the eclipse spot. MOON in Aquarius.
Sun and Neptune meet up (this will be around for the next few days, exact around the full moon in Pisces, on the 6th), things can start to get foggy, you feel a little mellow, this is a great aspect to go with the flow, use your imagination, dream, write, you can be more sensitive and intuitive.
Be as clear as you can with your words and actions, this can lead to misunderstanding, delusions, deception. As you can often feel as if you do not know what is real and true with this one. I always find Neptune a tricky one.
Mars and Mercury hit the eclipses spot, some energy is being dumped on that one again, if you felt it last go round, your likely be feeling it again with some more input/change to that spot.
Moon in Aquarius, you might want to detach from your emotions, unplug, become more of a thinker, find solutions to your problems this way.

Like always check out your birth chart to see how this is working in your life.

Astro bits, Mercury Rx, re-enters Leo, 31st, Aug, 2017!

4cc1d05da2f5c96c67df6b024b0d1607--cg-art-female-warriors

MOON @29 degrees Sag, moves into Capricorn, well in about 20 mins. out of the fire into earth, ground down, get practical and real.
Mercury re-enter Leo 1st Sep, @1:26:52 am, rethinking a previous opinion or idea, go over the ideas that spark you up and connect with your HEART. This is part of the go for Gold that is with in you.
Reflecting on, going over, creativity, self-expression, romance.
There is something that you need to address, it’s come up again.
Mercury goes direct from September 5th (its shadow ends on September 19th).
But before this, it triggers the Solar eclipse spot 28 degrees, with Mars in Leo September 2-3, pay attention to those days and before this too, as this will be Sparky and significant.
If you know your birth chart, look at it , to see where all this action is happening for you personally.

Venus in Leo, Saturn Direct, and other Astro bits, 27th, Aug, 2017!

VENUS in LEO, step more into the spotlight with Venus here. She will be looking at Love, money, relationships and self-worth. When in Leo, you are bold and daring, you want fun, play and more excitement in your life, especially your love life. You will also want the attention, want to be adored, looked at and appreciated.
Venus can be open, generous, warm-hearted during her stay here. That is of course if she is getting the attention, if not, well then you may hear her roar.
Find the time to re energize your life, put that extra sparkle in all that you do. Go out and look your best, be charming, charismatic. Be confidant, Venus here will also let you know in what areas of your life that you do need a bit of a confidence boost. She will also show you what lacking in your life.

SATURN DIRECT ->->-> since April Saturn has been Rx, the planet of time, karma, commitment, work and goals. What was holding you back? What did you need to go over again.
Direct, you can move forward and hopefully you leave behind some of the old karmic debts that may have been dragging you down.

MARS conjunct NORTH NODE, 27th, great for taking action and going after what you want, plus with Venus also in Leo, another planet gives you a boost along, give you the passion, sass, to get yourself seen, to move you along the path of your soul’s purpose and passion. You have to back yourself here, know you have the goodies. Saturn D motion will give it somewhat of a forward momentum, you have paid off some debts, so go forward. It’s all the way to the future from here.
North Node, future self, path and road, step into it.

JUPITER sextile SATURN, 27th, these two are working together, with an optimistic practical approach, you can achieve, succeed. Jupiter expands and Saturn restricts, but with this meetup the two are working together to bring about opportunities, expansion, growth. But with a realistic touch and approach.

MOON in SCORPIO,  you go deeper, does bring in the deep intense emotional part, but use this to keep you going after your desires and passion. There is nothing like an intense emotional urge or want to keep you going.

 

 

 

 

Go towards the GOLD, New moon in Leo, 22nd Aug, 2017!!!

147d0fd1a39c1f766cb5d7fd66a4ed70

 

NEW MOON in LEO, 22nd, Aug @4:28 am (aest) + it’s  a solar eclipse. Sun and Moon conjunct, Mars is still close by, Trines to Saturn and Uranus.

Eclipses are powerful because they bring change, they open thing up, the universe steps in to lend a hand.

It’s a new moon in Leo, tapping into your heart of gold, finding the gold within you. It may take time, effort and courage to leap into the future path that this eclipse will take you, it’s energy hangs around for at least 6 months. Like most things it does take time to create and Leo is about creating something new for your future life.

Saturn and Uranus, (both dealing with future stuff), in a harmonious aspect to this new moon, solar eclipse, you may find that there will be some stabilizing, structure, to whatever awakening element that you may find yourself in.

Aquarius is the south node, the past, Leo is the north node future. It’s time to create a new road for yourself. Mars is pushing you along helping with courage, action you take and being brave as it’s time to leave something behind. It’s the only way.

The past few weeks have been a struggle for sure, coming out of the full moon in Aquarius also an eclipse, so things would have been shaken up and stirred, mentally and emotionally, felt messy and intense for sure. Here you may feel somewhat stronger and hopefully less stressed or traumatized by all the events which have taken place in that time. Aquarius, ruled by Uranus is the great awakener and on some level you have been too.

Stepping into the Leo energy, the north node, future path, leaping forward following your heart, with passion, strength, courage, and openness for a more creative, authentic expression of you and life. Finding your true spirit/passion/purpose and shine it out into the world. With a pure heart, integrity.

But it’s not easy shaking of all of the old stuff, picking yourself up, when you have been knocked down. Be brave, know you can face it all. With the spirit of a lion roaring from inside of you, find the gold within yourself once more, let go of the past traumas, and pain. I know it’s been one hell of a journey to get you here, and you are not done yet.

Find your gold and run with it.

  • Pull out your birth chart, get one done to see how the influence of the eclipse energy will affect your future life.
  • The houses below will give you an idea of where the eclipse will impact you. Working with the Asc, you need to know your birth chart for this.

However it will be transformative and powerful

Spend more time by yourself, delving deeper into what the cosmos has to tell you. This is, the let go and let god, it will take, faith, trust and belief in a higher power and being. Surrender to spirit. Live a more spiritual life. Just let go a little if you can.

Take the time to be alone and reflect, review during this new moon, an ending is happening and a new one is being born. ❤

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.

Sun conjunct Mars, Venus sextile the North Node, 26th July 2017!

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.

MARS in LEO!

Capture

 

MARS in LEO!

Things are getting hotter, movement happens when Mars is in another fire sign.

Mars prefers the Leo energy and it’s time to shine, go forward, be creative, confidant and yes! get looked at, go after what you want! You have the urge to create.

Leo ruled by the Sun, go after your goals, focus on your desires, this is a very outward expression of you now, connect with your heart and true passion of who YOU are. Don’t be afraid, remember this is the warrior in a fiery, passionate sign forging ahead. Mars in Leo, heats you up….. enjoy the attention, put yourself center stage.

Just do it from a humble, joyful heart, the other side of this is, you may flip to the arrogance or ego side. watch out for that. And if you’re not getting the attention you want, try other avenues, see what needs to change and make that happen.

Things can pick up, move along, and forge ahead, Mars is the action planet.
