The Turquoise Blueprint

Full Moon in Virgo – 2nd March, 2018!

sad

The full moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune. You find the Moon will illuminate through Virgo’s practical, simple, discerning ways, will bring in the realm of reality, so the Pisces dream/vision, illusion/delusion, clarity/fog may find it gets a reality bite.

You may realize that the dream or illusion you have been in meets up with the truth or reality comes home. What you have to do now is be logical, practical and honest with yourself to keep you going forward with that dream or vision.

Be discerning, sort out what’s really worth keeping or working with and what really needs to go. Virgo brings that dream down to earth and want’s to make it practical, useful and workable, in many ways this is humbling and it touches the heart when you can look at yourself and know the truth about your situation, here is the opportunity to be true and honest, so you can be of service to the world, in ways that allow you to grow, nurture.

This Moon may bust a bubble but that’s OK, let it pop, know that all is not lost, this is a workable energy, just stay grounded, don’t get overly emotional , (I know it’s difficult with this much water in the chart ). Know you can do it by taking a realistic look at what you want and what you are doing and how you are going about doing it.

Take the shine of it and see it all in the light of day, in your day-to-day reality, plus, what  are you really able to do? You will see that it’s still perfect just in different ways, you will find that the process and growth will be so much more rich once you come back to earth and look at it with a clear or new perspective from the place of who you really are, not what you think you are or imagine to be.

Venus and then Mercury (this Full Moon ruler) bump it up with Jupiter, more, to expand, luck, joy and abundance are in a trine aspect, there is more growth and things to come. Whatever it is you are letting go of now may not really be let go of completely, you can blend it all into new ways and into your new being. Mercury and Jupiter, optimistic, thoughts or thinking.

With this Full Moon be honest, real and truthful with yourself. Don’t live in the la la land or the woo woo as it won’t take you anywhere.

Keep it sweet and simple, find the beauty in the everyday things, nurture, love and embrace this quality. The growth, abundance and rewards will come in the sweet little ways.
Tender gently to the seeds and weeds as there is always more to come.

NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS

New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this timeAs with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.

Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.

Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.

Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.

Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.

Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.

Weekly Tarot Card Reading, 25th Dec, 2017!

This weeks card is the High Priestess.
She knows things, perhaps it’s time to work your magic! Feel her pull, her potential for all things to happen.
Find some stillness in your week, the High Priestess lets you know that changes are happening slowly within you and around you. Sometimes things are about to unfold, be revealed and she holds them from you but you KNOW that something is afoot, so you listen to hear what she is trying to tell you. Trust her, trust yourself, trust your own inner voice. Listen to your intuition.

Waite, be patient.
There is a lot brewing within her.
Sometimes I see her as an incubation period, before things start to manifest.

New Moon in Sagittarius, 18th Dec, 2017!

new moon in sag

 

NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS!
Standing at the precipice of change.

Here you are at the last new moon of the year in Sagittarius, and Saturn leads the way or is he just holding up the line. Because once he enters Capricorn some freedom may be felt.

When you plant your seed of new intention, know where you are going, name it. It’s the direct approach that is needed.

Mercury in Rx, slowing things down and hopefully you have slowed down enough also. More information, truth, is coming, needed for the path forward.

Chiron is squaring, brings up some sore spots to heal and work on, you may be feeling it all, frustration, pain, sorrow, tired, lost and confused, completely over it, as it’s been a very difficult time. Put it all behind you and keep yourself together, leave it all at the old door, and keep walking to the future that is calling you. Uranus is in a harmonious aspect loosely and this is a gentle keep going push for the new experience, freedom and liberation that you long for. That is also Sagittarius attitude too, time for the new.
Venus is bringing her beauty, fun, sassy, love vibe, making sure that you lead with your heart, have a set of values to help you along the way.

Keep the Sag moon theme in mind, know where you are going, know where you don’t want to go. This to me is still a very Saturn time. He is still in charge and he will still be a major player for the next 2-½ years. So before you go shooting off your fiery, arrow, give it a destination to land otherwise it may spend a lot of time just flying around and getting nowhere and doing nothing, doing this has no meaning, point or purpose and you just waste a lot of time, so, not Saturn. Saturn has been working hard to give the Sag fire element a framework to work within, it has been contained somewhat, but hopefully you now know how to work and use this to your highest potential, as you get set to build.

Take some time during this new moon to reflect on the lesson that you have gone through over the last 2-3 years, find meaning, knowledge and understanding as to why and what you had to learn or to look at. Hopefully you gained some truth and you know your truth.

Enjoy the vibe of the new moon, the end is near, and the future awaits, so
face the new horizon, look towards the future, and when you get the sign to move, well…… smile, know, aim and go!

SUN trine NORTH NODE!
Life gets on top of you, it’s not much fun, you are trying to understand the meaning and purpose, work it all out, and it can be, one great big s*#t fight. Take this moment to look at this, allow yourself something good, have something to look forward too, get back in touch with you, have faith and trust this will change.
*Moon’s in Leo, (feelings what you need), adds more of this fun, creative, play theme.
*Mars is ready to leave Libra, and dive into Scorpio tomorrow, this does add a touch of frustration and angst to this mix. He is ready for the go moment, no more holding back for him.

Full Moon in Gemini, 4th Dec, 2017!

Mercury Rx begins hours before the Full Moon.
Mercury conjunct Saturn.
Sun opposite Moon, both square to Neptune.
Jupiter trines Neptune.
Moon quincunx Jupiter.

Well, there’s a lot going on with this full moon, as I am sure you all know and feel. It’s all a big muddle really, inside and out. But finding your way is a must. Many choices and decisions are going to be made and need to be made, the time now is to work out what all that is about, what do you want and what will you choice? for the next part of your journey, you have been working hard clearing out all year long, here you are at a pivotal point and very close to the end, so whatever is happening now is part of the story of old and new. Over the next few weeks you get the chance to review the story and then go forward after having had time to reflect.

This is the end of a major journey right now, until you reach the end of December and enter January, where you begin again. Best to end on a high note, so when next year comes you are at a place of truth within you, now is the time to be true, honest, clear, and I gotta say with less baggage(very important, you gotta leave that in 2017) fearless, vulnerable, plus have faith particularity in yourself.

This is all about communication, Mercury rules Gemini. Gemini/Sagittarius axis is about information/learning and knowledge/wisdom/experience. Light is shining on the mind, thoughts, ideas, what you need to know, what you know. Pay attention to words, either written or spoken. You’re seeking the truth here with Sun in Sagittarius.

With Saturn involved and he’s a big player, getting ready to leave Sag and enter Capricorn, on the 19-20th of Dec, he has been giving us lesson, upon lesson, deleting and working us through our stuff and karma, to restructure us into our truth, for you to be honest, work with integrity, to grow up, be responsible and own your stuff. You know what you have had to do, let’s hope you have done it. Saturn does reward for the job/work done. And when he moves into Capricorn you will see where you are at on the karmic scale, rewards or none?

So, it’s very important with all of the information/communication that will be floating around to be honest and true in all that you do.
Neptune can spin both ways here, can bring in the confusion, uncertainty, illusion, are you kidding yourself? you may not know what is true and what is not, listening, speaking with clarity, honesty and an openness is the best approach, and ask question if your are not sure. Neptune will help dissolve any barriers, so you can do this with faith and trust in the process.

Adjustments may be made, being flexible, and stay grounded, have a daily practical routine for the next few weeks to get yourself steady and most of all…… slow down, Mercury is Rx remember, you are being asked to go over, reflect and review.

 

Astro aspects, Mercury conjunct Saturn, 28 Nov, 2017!

New York (Man and Woman Talking) by Vivian Maier, 1969

Life just keeps on rolling on, keeps dishing it all out. Here you are thinking, now the Sun being in the ever optimistic Sagittarius that the Sun would shine a little more brightly, but wait, there is this coming.
Mercury conjunct Saturn (28th Nov), your thoughts, communication, thinking hits it up with Saturn who blocks, limits, gives it the dose of reality to all Mercurian things and topics. Somethings can clearly be laid out on the table here, commitments or ending may come about. Are you in or out.
Negative thinking or thoughts are strong during this, you may be more conservative and cautious with your approach too. You may also be having trouble being optimistic about life and where you are at, in your life.
Can be a great time for working on plans as your thoughts are more precise and focused.
Mercury goes Rx(3rd Dec), hits up again with Saturn on the 6th Dec, so whatever is happening on the 28th will be up for review, revision or delay again, you think it’s over but is it?
And this leads me up to the Full Moon in Gemini(3-4rd Dec), Mercury also rules Gemini, so Mercury is strong, which happens on the same day Mercury goes Rx, plus this moon is aspecting Neptune(a square, not an easy one) just to add a little or a lot of confusion, delusion, uncertainty to what the hell is really going on. Back into some fog! Being in Gemini it may bring in information, choices/questions or options, more than one way of looking at or doing something. And you won’t really know until Mercury goes D on the 22nd-23rd Dec, of what the outcome is or what it is really all about.

VENUS sextiles PLUTO, Moon enters Capricorn, Neptune stations to go direct, Sun @29 degrees of Scorpio.

Venus planet of love, relationship, values and being social is meeting up with Pluto, transformation. You can find you long or want a deeper connection with lover or friends, it’s bout the connection for transformation. What shifts have been happening re-guards to these areas of your life, what level of intimacy have you been trying to transform into something of deeper meaning and value in your life. If not with others, have you been doing it within yourself.

Moon enters Capricorn, this will add a more serious tone to the day.

Neptune is getting ready to go direct, this does add a funky vibe to the day, it’s a dreamy, confused dazed, not easy to work with. Let the Planet of dreams and a higher life and love, turn around, before the picture gets clearer.

Sun at the last degree 29, of Scorpio which also brings in the edge, it goes deeper one last dip, it’s getting ready to enter Sagittarius, out of the deep waters into the fires of Truth, understanding, Faith and Beliefs.

Sun/Moon in Scorpio, quincunx to Uranus in Aries, Uranus trines Saturn.

There is weight and depth behind your emotions for this new moon. You’re trying to find a place to anchor these emotions but it’s going to be difficult/uncomfortable with Uranus adding an odd feeling to it, you want to reach out to the new, liberating, freedom, awake and alive feeling that Uranus usually brings often in a jolt or sudden surprising way, but this time it’s at odds. Not really sure how Uranus is working you here, a quincunx (150* angle) is making adjustment to something, could be difficult to pin down exactly what this is or even do.

Uranus and Saturn are in a harmonious aspect to each other, stay open and flexible, work with the energies is a good approach, it’s not the holding firm or sticking to (the old ways) with this one, you do have to kinda sit with it, with no fixed outcome or even beginning, as you are in the letting go, and getting ready to connect, you are in the abyss part, the deep, dark unknown. Even though there is a real fixed edge and feeling lurking about. From someone or something? Perhaps that is where the power lies.

Even though you know Uranus is tempting/annoying you with the new, but hold on just a tick to see how to go towards that new. Commitments, deeper bonding, what are you getting ready to sign up to or for. Remember this new moon is in Scorpio, you may have to go deeper within to really find your way out. Which often is looking at the truth, the things that scare you. Scorpio’s roll is to bring light to unconscious things hidden to consciousness. Sun and Moon are both there to accept the others offering of light and dark.

Mars and Pluto are in the background getting ready to square off, this does bring in a tense feel. Both of these planets are the ruler of Scorpio. Squares bring a bit of a crisis feeling, you feel the need to take action however the action may be distorted or off, you might be boxing at shadows. You feel you need to get this sorted, to claim some power back, to transform this thing that seems to be taking forever, dancing around the edges, be aware to not push too far, these two do not mess around, watch out for the anger/rage, disruptive element that is still here within the new moon. Uranus is in a very uncomfortable spot, that may bring in the pop!

Stay the steady course, be awake and aware and listen to what is happening within you, Scorpio roll and his rulers Mars/Pluto are here to bring an end, to bring rebirth and transformation that will eventually bring you the power and freedom you are truly seeking.

*Sun in Scorpio trine Moon in Pisces, it’s a supportive/successful aspect, Scorpio Sun, brings intensity to the sweet, magical vibe, Pisces Moon is surrender, faith.
You go deeper into waters, have courage, submerge, let go.
 
*Mercury in Scorpio squares South Node in Aquarius, North Node in Leo. Squares brings intensity, brings in choices, it’s a blocked energy/aspect from the past and to the future.
You have to do Mercury to move forward, and that’s digging into stuff the pops up/sudden (Aquarius), basically, have that conversation, get that information, think deeply about it. You may not really know, feel unsure, to move forward or stay in the past. There is a part of you that will want to hide, keep it hidden. Brace yourself, dig deep, trust, step into the unknown future (Leo, heart).
