VENUS trine JUPITER, MARS trine CHIRON, MOON in Taurus.

After coming off yesterday’s energy, you feel somewhat better, it’s a smoother ride.

Mars meets up with Chiron, you are more driven or energized to do some healing work on the wounds of old or yesterday. Mars is coming of his hard aspect to Uranus, you may have been rattled, there might be an element of surprise. You may even just be surprised, how one day you’re off and the next you’re on.

Venus connects with Jupiter, you feel more optimistic and even a little joyful, in areas of LoVe, money, romance and relationship. If any disappointment or illusion is left over from meeting up with Neptune, this can make you feel more positive in what you are reaching for.

Moon in Taurus helps to be grounded, practical in your approach. Can also help you to shake off all of the intensity of the last few day.

VENUS square NEPTUNE, MARS squares URANUS, Moon in Aries.

With Venus hitting up hard against Neptune whatever you want in money, love, relationship. May be out of reach. Love may be elusive, you really dream it, want it, perhaps you can even taste it. Neptune brings with it a sense of illusion, delusion, and disappointment. 

Not the best day to sign contracts personally or business. Hold off. Even till tomorrow.

Maybe it’s just a day-dream.

Mars in Cancer is emotionally, firing you along, wanting to take action, go out and get it, but hitting up hard against Uranus’s push, a trigger point, may be distributing you, stirring you up. You may be reckless or take a risk just to get something. A need wants to be met. Act with judgment, with Neptune floating out with Venus is may only lead to heart ache or despair.

It’s all still too elusive, not real yet.

Moon in Aries is the beginning. A starting point, the surge of energy, to clear away the old, this may be a place of freedom that’s happening, a burning desire from within that is making its way out.

But it’s not really ready…..yet.

Full Moon In Capricorn, 9th July, 2017, 17 degrees, @2:07:21 pm.

Sun, Moon, Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter are the players.

Transcend, transform to new heights!

You’ve probably have had Enough, the internal, external emotional pressure swirling around you. The extremes of emotions are pulling, pushing and probing you, you want things to change and sometimes it takes the external factors around you, with them pushing for you to make them. What is making you wobble or rattled. And why?

You have to keep pushing through the boundaries of the old, to get to the other side. This Moon as the Oomph to get you through, it will impact you on some level in areas where you have had, enough! Pluto and Mars, clash and collide. A battle is raging inside and it wants you to participate, to take notice. 

This is a moon about power, control and transformation.

And this full moon may help you to really see what is bothering you. Mars and Pluto really bring in the anger, strength, power for you to look at ALL of your emotions, full moon illuminates all that is hidden for you to see, reflects back to you.  With Pluto and Mars in the mix it can be messy, murky. 

Allow the burn to work in positive ways to enhance your life.

Building up to this moon has not been an easy one, it’s more than likely dragged up some festering emotions from within your psyche, which are burning inside of you. On some level you want to let go of control and just scream, take out your sword and cut it all away, you want to feel powerful or at least feel that you have some. The more you can contain and control all of the amped up emotions and direct it into something worthwhile and creative the better off you will be in the long run.

What is it you want? what fear does this Moon bring up, what old habits, beliefs, structures are working within to breakdown. Working from a place of some awareness, over the last few years you have woken up to how you work and function, to change anything that’s been there for a long time is hard, difficult, uncomfortable and this is what you are facing here.

A letting something go to gain something else, making room for more to come in.

The burning rage that is within you, use it as fuel. Be focused and determined, don’t let things, people, situations seep in and disarm you. Keep your eye on your own vision, goal, future.

Anything Pluto, is an internal process, it’s about you growing up and standing up inside, being aware of the power and control you have over your emotions and actions. Work with Pluto energy of great transformation, to bring down the old that you are no longer. Pluto removes, what is not yours anymore. 

  •  Jupiter is bringing the magnifying glass, to expand all of the energy for you to get a really good look at what is boiling and festering.

Use your emotions as a gauge, a point of awareness, to work on all of the areas that need to transform.

  •  Remember to take some self-care, do not be too hard on yourself, don’t go into the negative place for too long, don’t let the frustration bring you down, have patience with yourself and others. 

Keep in mind this may have a wonderful, refreshing positive effect on you. You may discover that passion, love or lust for life, making you to want to step out and into your true self. This Moon may spark some of it.  North Node in Leo is dying for you to shine, be the original you. Show some of that talent.

Blessing under this wild, Moon.

Astro Aspects 4th, July 2017!

 

ScorpioMoon-1

Some Aspects for the week.

July 4th…..A crossroads.
MOON in Scorpio, added the little extra zing or sting to the tail end of the Mars and Pluto square, that happened a few days ago, emotions may have been raw and your mood was even more so. External and inner demons have come about with this energy. It has not been an easy time. You have been rattled. But hopefully you have used the emotions to take some action, to make a change, seen something within you that was not right.

Pluto is transformation and it’s about transformation of what is inside of you. Rising up and out, something is being born.
Clear something out, clean, purge, great Pluto tools. Shift, clear out the old stuff.

Moon is headed for the full moon in Capricorn on the 9-10 and it’s gonna, be right next to Pluto, so it may also be a doozy.

Venus enters Gemini on the 5th, she will help lighten up the energy.

July 4th, JUPITER quincunx NEPTUNE, Adjustments, need to be made, look at your ideals, beliefs, faith you may be challenged as you review your reality of your life. Go back seven years, Jupiter was in Aries, now is opposite in Libra, how far have you come.

This is a bit of a reality check. Disillusion, illusion is part of this process, with Neptune, showing you this part.
What did you believe, have faith in, put your faith, trust and commitment to, what and who back then.
How do you stand now in all of this, are you the same person, do you still have the same faith, trust and belief?

This pair started the quincunx back in October, its wrapping up. Some clarity and understanding you can find as you move into August and September.

Astrology the week 26th – 2nd, July, 2016!

 

1e1dd5180c0bd7564df2aa493db11bec

Here is an over view for the week ahead it may not be such an easy week.  Even a little extreme in some ways! But with some info and foresight, skills and tools you can navigate your way through it with more ease and less stress.

Jun 25, Mars in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, exact today. Building over the last day or two. You push to go forward, with this energy you may take some action or steps to extreme, as you want to expand, let go a little, but you find you can go too far. Mars, maybe running your emotions for this to happen. You do want to grow as an individual. Try and expand with some awareness of who you really are, and what you are doing, as you can go too far, go out of balance in areas that may take you to places that will make you feel not so good afterwards. After this high energy day. 

Jun 25-26, Mars in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces, he settles down, not so assertive today, hey, you may feel worn out and do not what to do much, more of a day to dream, use your imagination, connect with more spiritual aspects of you. Easy flow day, which also may take you a little further out.

Jun 27, Mercury in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, you can feel optimistic, positive about life, good day to look at long-term goals, maybe give it some thought, you may find you have a view to a bigger picture. It is a square, so look at all the details, you might have information overload, be flexible and don’t go too far, Jupiter energy has a tendency to do this. Mercury is in Cancer so watch your emotions don’t go to the extreme. Then of course this is happening too. Still a push happening here.

Jun 27, Mercury in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces, another part of you is dreamy, sensitive, would like to just go away and float in the universe, try to bring some spiritual, aspects to your day. Bring some magic into your world. Between the two aspects it may be a very good to let your intuition guide the way. Keep in mind that Mars is close by, fueling you long.

Jun 28, Mercury in Cancer conjunct Mars in Cancer, your thoughts into action. That may come out with your words, it’s really is best to think before hand. This one can make you feel irritable, edgy, try to be patient. Don’t rush into things to impulsively. Mentally you can feel alert, ready for an intelligent debate, but this could also be heated arguments. It may leave you feeling slightly frazzled around the edges. Venus and Saturn are aspecting as well, so relationship or dealing with other people may not be as easy for some.

June 28, Venus in Taurus quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius, A quincunx is a challenging aspect, a need for an adjustment is being called for, something just doesn’t feel or look right. You can find yourself worrying about relationships, money, love or an issue can come up for you, remember Saturn brings things up to the surface, Saturn does bring in a limiting, sobering, serious vibe to the day.

Jun 29, Mercury in Cancer opposition Pluto in Capricorn, probing mind, good day to get to the bottom of a situation, but you can become rather obsessive about it. Delving deeply into a subject or really taking a closer look at other people or your own behavior is great, but don’t get too lost in it all, bring a sense of perspective to it. Other people may be a bit of a problem for you, anything Pluto is about power and control.

July 1, Chiron goes Rx in Pisces. More on Chiron another time. Will join Neptune in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Sagittarius. Chiron retrograde in Pisces July 1, 2017 through December 5, 2017. Chiron deals with your wounding, pain and hurts, it’s a sensitive spot. 

Jul  2, Mercury  in Cancer quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius, mentally you may feel blocked or limited, you may get stuck on an issue or idea, take another look, make a few adjustments, where Saturn is you can feel limited. You think you can’t, when maybe you can? or vice, versa.

Jul  2, Mars in Cancer opposition Pluto in Capricorn, this is not any easy aspect with these two power planet’s involved. Use it wisely and you can achieve many things, move through the barriers that have been in your way. You can have potential to move beyond a place you thought you would never get to. But watch out for the power trippers along the way, other people can be trouble and may try an assert their own power on you. Take it easy and always act with some caution and awareness, you are not in this alone, your actions do affect other people. Mars in Cancer, so people will be emotional or acting from an emotional place, stay steady, ground the emotions into something worthwhile and long-lasting.

Phew, perhaps not an easy week, but then way should this week be any different from any other week, aren’t they all just a wee bit rough of late.

FULL MOON in SCORPIO, 11 may,7:43:19 am, @ 20 degrees.
Making the unconscious, conscious!
With Mercury and Uranus meeting up and chatting to each other, Mars the old ruler of Scorpio in Gemini, information, things you should know, are and have been coming to light. Having a chat or two may help you out and get things of your chest to help you clear the way.
Mars is in aspect to Neptune, so maybe hold off until you get real clarity on any major information you get, as the lines are blurred with Neptune involved.
Sun and Moon meet up nicely with Pluto also ruler of Scorpio, helping to give you a structure or form to all that is happening to and for you. Remember Pluto is all about power, getting you in the best possible place.
Take care of your emotions as Scorpio is a water sign, and is deep water, emotions may come up for you look at, listen to words that follow them, this can be your lead, to consciousness.
Scorpio = rebirth and transformation.

 

April, 2017….just keeps going on and on!

0a0ddd85b8a1e713ac3d94a90fcc3ce7
SUN enters TAURUS, MARS enters GEMINI, Mercury meets up with the Sun. April just keeps rolling on with intensity, keeping you on your toes and making you know you are alive.
Sun in Taurus, ground down and ground yourself into the earthy realms of Taurus, keep it simple, logical and practical, try and manifest what you where thinking about when Sun was in Aries, let the new come through with Taurus.
Taurus, self-sufficiency, resources, growth, values, what you own, and can you survive, through it all with what you got. Have you got the stuff inside of you or is it all about your things?
But it’s also about manifesting something that is worth while and you can grow from and with.
Keep it all as real as you can.
Mars the warrior moves into Gemini, fire and air, you are fired up, you can multi task, may even juggle! Choices and information, communication is fired up to go. Your mind and you may move somewhat faster, so work with the Sun in Taurus energy to ground you, so you don’t burn out. Watch your words as you may find that they just come out with passion or force with Mars working through Gemini.
Situations, come and go quickly, Air it’s always moving.
Stay open and flexible for the new info coming your way.

Mars moves on!!!

MARS is picking up speed, now that he is out of Rx, he’s pretty happy about that, after not moving very far or fast for how many months, well, something like 9 and only being in two signs, Scorpio and Sagittarius. He is in Capricorn and he feels more powerful here, he likes it.

He is now going forward and making hard aspects to Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus, all in this month.

Mars is making up for the lost time, of going slow and backwards.

Mars is the planet of courage and action, the action you take, he’s making a move to push forward. By taking on the big boys of the sky.

Remember he is in Capricorn, feeling stronger. If Mars was confused about what to do before, in Capricorn he won’t be, Capricorn does not like to confused, and won’t be, it’s all about  solutions, decisions, be disciplined, giving your plans structure, make them real.

Mars squares Jupiter first on the 5th, a time of confidence and energy, you may feel up for a challenge, or up for anything. You may even find you take some much needed action plus feeling very confident in it. Just watch out for being too impulsive or taking your energy to far out there and being overbearing or annoying to others. Good thing Jupiter is in Libra, that might contain some of the Mars spark.

Next up conjunct Pluto on the 20th, here is another push, strength and determination you have, and feeling ambitious to achieve or succeed. Your desires and motivation can be quite strong when these two meet up.

Strength, courage, and power.

To wrap it up Mars squares Uranus, you have the urge to be impulsive, break away, and do your own thing, some inner tensions are at work. Best to use this energy and time to move ahead, work through any obstacles, or things that you feel are holding you back or in. Use this energy to take you forward, to achieve your goals, you will have the drive and ambition to succeed.

Uranus is calling for change, something new. Mars is the action to take it and create it.

Mars has moved along nicely, let off some steam, found his inner warrior again. Got himself some action, at long last, it’s not for the faint of heart.

I guess he is making up for lost time…..

And like always check out your birth chart to see where Mars is shaking things up for you.

 

In tune with the Moon! 25-31 July.

Mars direct!

 

stephenson_moonrocket

Mars is now direct after being Rx since April 17th, first in Sag, then in Scorpio.

The planet of action, the action you take, it’s a very outward energy, he likes to do, by being assertive, searching for the new. Mars rules Aries and is cardinal fire, likes to start new things, plus have adventures.

But in Rx phrase he slows down, not so active or assertive, this can be very irritating, annoying, frustrating, can bring up anger and you feel pissed off or even ripped off.

He is going over stuff again, digs up, into your fears, frustration, makes you feel like you are blocked and it’s just difficult to get things going, or even finding the energy and drive to do.

That’s because in Scorpio for the last leg of Rx, was for you to slow down pay attention to the fears, your frustration, your anger, what did your emotions tell you, what did it bring up for you. Being in Scorpio it may have been around, money, intimate relationship, sex, death, deep emotions around fears of being powerless, just facing what is in you, what terrifies you a little or a lot.

Have you got what it takes!

Whatever it has been about for you, look at it, clear it away, work on it. Because Mars is now moving forward and this will unlock, unblock the way, hopefully a new pathway has been cleared for you to go down or follow, it will take courage to go forward with more conviction, as he would’ve dug up the fears/tears and now you have to go ahead, leaving the fears behind. Give him time to pick up speed as he is still in the shadow zone, let him gain some momentum.

Mars and Venus are in a nice little trine exact on the 7th of July, great time to be sociable, be creative, express yourself, attractions can be strong with these two. Can be quite a bit of stimulation when these two meet up. Both are in water signs, so, go with your feelings and flow. Generally it’s a positive time.

Mars moves ahead, action, you feel now as if you can take and make some.

Mars will enter Sag again, on the 3rd of Aug, @4:33:06 am, here you walk your talk.

You have to go out and get what you want, With the warrior’s heart, a fire burning brightly in your belly.
