MARS opposite Chiron, Mercury opposite Uranus.

It may be a prickly day with these two aspects. First off Mars opposite Chiron brings in some kind of hurts as the wound is being poked at. You may feel like your interest or desire cannot be acted on, you just cannot see a way to do this, so some frustration, pissed of emotions may emerge.
Add this to the mix, Mercury/Uranus, is the plan changes, but you may not want it to. So you have to change your mind, look at it differently, go with the flow.
Make adjustments, don’t go on the attack. This will not work out.
Work through the emotions that come up for you, and they will be the ones that make you uncomfortable, annoyed, as Chiron is involved, brings it to the surface.
Take a slower, gentler way through the day.

Jupiter opposite Uranus, 28th Sept, 2017!

Jupiter Opposite Uranus, these two have been playing it out since 26th Dec 2016. They bump into each other for one last time on 28th, move on and over 2 Oct, 2017.
What have they been trying to do. Bring in change, to expand you and your life. In new ways, with new people, to get you out of the old, the routine.
It may have been a lot of surprises, shock or disruption along the way, that’s how Uranus rolls, and Jupiter brings, luck, joy was giving a helping hand, a big push, wanting you to grow and expand. If you resisted it may have been more of the shock part, if you wanted to grow, you let go, and went with the flow.

Many parts of you have changed, your beliefs, ideals, attitudes, life in general, how you look and see yourself, particularly in relationship, partnerships, Jupiter has been in Libra during this time, connecting you with the right people for the next phase.
Might be more to this story, you will know after the 2nd.

The thing with Uranus, likes to stir it up, takes a risk at all cost, Libra likes to maintain some balance, so some caution is called for here particularly this week, make the smart moves, with the right people for the long haul.

It may have a very good ending for you or it may have just been one big disruptive time.
It’s been a breaking away, liberating you, to freedom.

 

 

 

 

New Moon in Virgo, 20th Sept, 2017!

 

nmv 2

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.

Balsamic moon phase, time before the new moon, you may really feel like winding down, feeling like letting go, that even apart of you is literally dying away into a nothingness. Ideally it’s an internal, quite time of the moon. You may still be releasing after the Full moon in Pisces, wrapping things up, the endings.
Moon has just entered Virgo, ground down into earthy realms, looking at the details.
*
Venus quincunx Chiron, love, self-esteem, beauty, relationship hit a bit of a sore spot over the last few days, some little annoyance perhaps got in the way of you really just enjoying the Venus/Jupiter aspect which was also about. You may have felt hopeful/optimistic for something or someone, but felt the pain, or disappointment of the quincunx. You work through the vulnerabilities and feeling uncomfortable, aware what it has brought up for you.
*
Just as Venus comes off her aspect to Chiron she meets up with Uranus, an unusual, surprise or sudden bit comes into play. You like excitement, some relief perhaps.
Uranus brings in insight out of the blue, the unexpected!

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, 25th Aug, 2017!

moon-pluto-aspect

MOON in LIBRA square PLUTO.
You want your feelings to level out, to find some balance, but the Moon hits into Pluto, so here comes that feeling again, more deep intense feelings come floating to the surface. Back into some internal conflict.
Best way through is to find the balance and hold on to that. And watch out for any rough, brooding, emotions that come up. Pluto wants to transform and regenerate you.

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.

 

Keep in mind the past is Aquarius, this is a place/house where life/stuff is getting mucked about, to be let go off. Leo is the future, a place where you need to create a new expression.

Leo Asc – 1st house(future) and 7th house(past)

You are birthing a creative new way of expressing yourself in relationship/partnership, you are being more driven by instinct and desire you go out and get what you want, instinctual, natural impulse working with you. Primal energy coming through.

Cancer Asc – 2nd – 8th house

You may find that you can be resourceful, areas around money, self-worth, how resourceful are you, or do you depend on others too much (8th house stuff)? Time for you to get resourceful and look out for yourself.

Gemini Asc – 3rd – 9th house

Finding new creative ways to communicate, thinking for yourself, networking, immediate environment. Siblings, talking,  writing, communication. Your mind, your perception.

Taurus Asc – 4th – 10th house

Finding new creative ways to be with family, build a family, build a stronger emotional base for you, finding stabling in your inner world, your feelings. Staying home, nurture and taking care of you and yours. Comforts, security, safety.

Aries Asc – 5th – 11th house

Time to really create yourself a new, be more authentic and original, move away from the crowd, do it your way. Fun, play, and most of all create something for you that is worthwhile and that you can share. Create, expressing yourself through your passion and heart. Create, be creative.

Pisces Asc – 6th – 12th house

Find creative new ways to get into your daily life, work, give, be of service to others, look at the details of your life. Get real and have a reality check. Pay attention to you body, health and healing. Get a job if you need to, stop dreaming, or better still bring the dream into reality.

Aquarius Asc – 7th – 1st house

Find new creative ways in your relationship, listen, find the beauty in all of them. It’s about you and the other, let go of, the it’s only me stuff. Find balance and harmony, romance in your relationships, level things out again.

Capricorn Asc – 8th – 2nd house

Find new and creative ways in your intimate relationships, or you really need to get intimate, yes that’s right go get yourself some. It’s about sharing all you have with another, developing deeper bonds with others, maybe you have to be more open, you can’t do it all yourself. It may get deep, messy, passionate and raw. However it will be transformative and powerful

Sagittarius Asc – 9th – 3rd house

Find creative, new ways to express yourself in the world, learn from other cultures, broaden your horizons, get the bigger picture, get out of your head and get in touch your natural intuitive self. Get out of the city and go into nature, explore. Check into what you believe in, your attitude.

Scorpio Asc – 10th – 4th house

Finding new ways to creatively expressing yourself through your work, career, maybe it’s time to get serious about your life, your job, your standing in the community. Perhaps you need to get out of the house more.

Libra Asc – 11th – 5th house

Finding ways to creatively express yourself in groups, community, friends. Get some brilliant future insights to help you with your future, go big. Think about your future. Liberate yourself somehow, find the rebel within you.

Virgo Asc – 12th – 6th house 

Finding ways to create a more spiritual life, connect with the divine, mediate. Get out of the daily grind of work and the details. 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. ❤

  

 

 

Venus opposite Pluto, 15th Aug, 2017!

Woman smoking in Central Park, NYC, 1950s.

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.

Venus enters Cancer!

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.
