I really love, like astrology it’s been a real blessing in my life and has helped me understand a lot of the things, that have happened or are happening or are coming. Plus I got to understand myself better, which is one of the great reason to know your chart.
I encourage you all, to get to know your birth chart. Get to know more about yourself, how you work and how you could work better, have a look at your strength and weakness, It’s a useful tool, a map, a guide book on your journey.
Go, get yourself a birth chart from a website, http://www.astro.com/ is a good one, their are many out there and you can get it for free, you do need to know your birth time to get a more actuate chart.
First thing I would recommend is to just look at it, It’s a pie cut into 12 pieces (houses), numbered 1 – 12, first house, second house, etc, see where the planets are placed, or if a house is empty, don’t try and work it out too much, all you’re doing is remembering the image in your mind to call on. Get to know what planet is in what zodiac sign and in what house, print it out and look at it, so you can recall it when you need to.
An example, Saturn is in Sagittarius, leaves at the end of the year. Do you have any planets in Sagittarius, where is Sagittarius in your birth chart, what house? By knowing this you will know what you are in for and how it will impact you.
For instance I have Moon in Sag in the 4th house, Sun in Sag in the 5th house, when any planet enters Sagittarius I know it will conjunct my Moon and Sun in my birth chart, this will bring in new energy.
You would google, Sun (transiting) conjunct Moon (birth) in Sagittarius for info on what that means. If you want to really get into it add the house to it. However I would recommend that for later.
Look at where your Sun and Moon are, they are the most important place to start, then get to know all of the other planets placements in time.
With this image in your mind you can work with the transits.
“The natal chart is seen as a static snapshot of a specific point in time, depicting exactly where the planets were when a person was born, whereas a “transit” involves the study of where the planets will be in the future.” and in the now. From theastrologydictionary.com
Follow the Sun around the wheel of your birth chart. As you know, the Sun (illuminates, shine) stays in each Zodiac sign for a about one month.
As the Sun moves around the wheel it will make contact with Planets in your birth chart, Conjuncts, sextiles, oppositions, squares and trines are all going to happen, by knowing your chart you can work with and be aware of what is happening or what you are being triggered by.
Sun is your purpose, the self, one’s personality, individuality, will, think of the Sun shining in the sky, it’s strong, it simply radiates out on the world, and yes it can also be overpowering, hot, to in your face.
The Sun is the present moment, what you want.
You can do the same with the Moon, Moon moves a lot quicker it stays in a Zodiac sign for about 2-2.5 days, it is transiting all signs in the month. Ha, which can explain why some people are so moody. If you have many planets all in the one sign you get triggered as the moon goes over them, reflecting back to you an emotion, and this is happening every month for you.
Moon is your emotions, feeling, intuition, reflects back to you, around you. Think of the Moon big and bright, changing all the time, dark and hidden.
Represents the past, is what you need.
That, right there’s a reason to know your birth chart so you can work with the energies by knowing what is happening and when.
Keep in mind all things take time, cycles are slow, some move faster. Their is a rhythm to astrology, it pulses and move. I hope you find your’s.
As above, so below!
2017 make it the year you get to know yourself better by working with your birth chart, go do some googling or better still get yourself and astrology reading for a basic chart intro to you.
- Aspects when two or more planets connect, depending on the aspect or relationship the planets are having it can be supportive or a challenge, maybe even both.
Transit words and meaning.
Conjunction – combined energies, usually working together, new cycle.
Opposition – challenge of two sides, can be tense and uncertain. Need for balance.
Square – bring in a challenge, a tension for stimulation for action. Conflict for growth.
Trine – easy, flow, supporting. Things come together with ease.
Sextile – co-operation and opportunity. Planets are sparking new ideas and energy. Packs more of a punch then a trine.
Quincunx – making adjustment, not easy, redirecting, the planets do not understand each other.
Go have some fun finding out about You!
“We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon”. Franklin D Roosevelt.
Here you are back at your beliefs, you have traveled around the zodiac, learnt from others, grown from your travels and experiences. Engaged with many cultures and people, thought you knew it all, you followed the path of your goal and vision.
Your back here and what do YOU know now!
Pull your arrow back, Sagittarius, close to your heart and use this as your compass to move on again around the zodiac once more.
This new moon, as with all new moon plant the seed of the new into your subconsciousness and wait and watch for it to grow and manifest.
Sagittarius, our beliefs, our truth, standing up in them and for them.
Aspecting the Sun and Moon, they both square Neptune in Pisces, feeling some confusion, uncertainty, out of sorts, lost or in many cases disbelieve, in which way to go. Sun/ Moon also square off with the South/North node of fate and destiny.
Neptune backed into the South node about a week ago and you may have had to wake up from the dream and realize that you need to let it go, and you can feel confused by this. Or for others the dream become the reality, and you say good-bye to the past and step into the future.
Neptune’s influence will fade in a day or two, usually the best way to work with Neptune is to be dreamy, read, listen to music, paint, play music, nature yourself with being artistic , spiritual.
Sun connects exactly on the 1st of Dec to shine some light and move away from the confusion that you may be feeling.
Bringing in the node of fate and destiny, memories and feeling from the subconscious may surface during the new moon, you may have felt this before when the moon was in Scorpio a few days earlier, something needed to be looked at, which is important for your purpose and journey. Let them go, free yourself.
Whatever has come up for you stop and pay attention to it as it will be linked to your soul’s journey, perhaps you have been overlooking something really important or you have been very focused outside of yourself and it now comes up for you to see, that you cannot move on without it.
Node, destiny and fate, is it meant to be? Is it yours?
The time before the new moon is the Balsamic phrase, ending, death, releasing. I usually feel withdrawn and quiet here something is always calling for release, once a month, we die to be reborn.
So, here is the new moon in Sagittarius, the archer aims, stands firmly on the earth, looks far and wide, looking for the long vision to go forth with.
WHAT NEXT! Ask yourself this, where do I go from here?
Take the time to set down your goals, stick a pin in it. Get a vision board happening, like I said look for the long vision.
What next, what do I want!
If the old dream had to go, or maybe parts still remain, it’s still a question of what now?
Use the qualities of Sag of being, positive, expansive, open, optimistic, philosophical to help you stay on track and finding and following your purpose.
But, most of all, be true to you, another Sag quality, truth, you have it, you know it, use it. What has been coming up for you over the last few weeks and months, is it all in alignment with your higher being and purpose. This is a bit of a truth moon, don’t be or live your life, for or being somebody else, that just won’t work anymore.
What do I now believe to be true for me?
Stay hopeful, have faith, send out your prayer’s, look long and broad.
Let your aim come from truth, wisdom under this New Moon
Blessing and Amen.
“Nothing happens until something moves” – Albert Einstein
The new moon happened early on the 31st @3:37:32 am (aest) conjunct Mercury, trine to Neptune, Saturn and Venus are stilling talking to each other, asking us to keep it real, do the work, face reality. Mars, Pluto, Uranus are still doing the same, triggering the Uranus/Pluto energy again, transform, things cannot stay the same.
This is a somewhat of a mystical moon, with Scorpio and Pisces involved, the veils are thinner, plus with mercury so close to the sun and moon, illumination, insight, intuition, is playing a strong part for you to get some information. Pay attention to your thoughts, feelings, emotions, signs and symbols to get your message from within.
It’s been a long, uncomfortable, uphill road that we have all been walking, over the last couple of weeks, OK….all year, thanks to the influence of the Saturn/Neptune square, what’s real – what’s not? is that the truth? very difficult to know. Now that the energy is happening in Scorpio, it’s time to go deep into our emotions that are welling and bubbling in side of us.
Yes, Scorpio ruled by Pluto and Mars is power, rebirth, renewal, regeneration. You can transform here, to feel renewed, but first to get to that place, perhaps revisit the ghosts of the past, do the work, I know it’s a dirty word. But to evolve you do have to participate in your own journey. Take some action.
Mars and Pluto in Capricorn, those two together bring in the reality for you. Goals, go the distance, endurance, keep it real, take off the rose-colored glasses, dive in deep to the watery realms of your inner world, look for the shadows, what murky, emotions, feelings, are swirling around underneath the surface for you to shine the light on, so you can integrate that part of yourself, that does need healing, nurturing, comforting, that’s the power place, to bring all of you together, this may mean things have to go, be removed, faced, acknowledged, because what lies below is still there, and it will not go away by you thinking or wishing it will.
We are also dealing with the collective conscience here now, everybody, you are feeling it all, which makes the walk up the hill so much more difficult. We are all in this together, with all of our fears, phobia, uncertainly. The more you work it all out, we all work it out.
That’s why with this new moon in Scorpio, look at the fears, shadows, that are coming up for you, to get and feel more powerful.
It’s a mystical time and a powerful time, you can turn lead into gold and that gold is you living, being, a more authentic, version of you.
That’s what the new moon in Scorpio is all about.
Look at the meaning in what has to go, be released and uncovered. So when we all move into Sagittarius season, we can then look at the truth, meaning and purpose of why that all had to happen.
