Mars at 29 Scorpio


Mars at 29 Scorpio


Cliche as it may be, it really is "darkest before dawn". 
The fact we are guaranteed a sunrise each day, is evidence enough that
 the Light always returns. 
Fear made a comeback in all our lives under this transit job 
and we've had our work cut out kicking it in its @$$! 
New Beginnings are just a mindset away...but...often mixed up in the 
messy business of 'endings'. Can you have one without other? 
Something is undeniably over or gone, while in other areas, 
situations or people are simply (or not so simply) going through intense rebirths 
along altered paths forever changed. 
It's all Hard Work, but something great is about to come from what seemed so terrible. 
No one gets left out, no one is forgotten. 
Hang in there as we squeeze through the bottleneck 
into the greater freedom of Mars entering worldly Sagittarius 
on August 2nd...

Structured Reaching: Mercury in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius


 
 



Need some mental stability, a fresh optimistic attitude, 
a new broad stroke of color to your creative offerings?
 
 Mercury in Leo has us Thinking Of The Fun we're about to have, 
or the Joy That's Sorely Missing
 
Playful (and Playing) minds can now tap into the Saturn in Sagittarius anchor - 
downloading Wisdom and Honesty - and some much needed 
"structured reaching" 
 to temper overly dramatic communications and conversations 
(within and without)...
 
 
Narrow minds are offered an opening now, recklessness is given a word of caution 
(and any appropriate Saturn limitation) and we may just discover a few Set in Stone Beliefs -
 and Judgments - blocking a more joyous head space, at least right now.

Channel thought into Learning Something to overcome inertia, 
Going Someplace to gain perspective or 
Passing On something about your own story, in order to draw in Feedback or Support.

Love is helped by...Venus-trine-Jupiter:



The last post was heavy, because the planetary combo of Venus-opposing-Pluto isn't light.  Light comes, after the piercing blackness, with this alignment, ask anyone born with it.

The Good News...is always there if you but look for it. Venus is aided now by Jupiter, a planet you always want on your side. This is the energetic principle of "good fortune" "being in the right place at the right time" "optimistic advances" "plenty of everything".

Love is helped by Optimism. Love is protected by Laughter.
 Love is healed with Adventure and Knowledge. 
Love is sustained with Honesty.

The downfall of this planetary team up is the "too much of the thing you love" which always sickens on some cellular level. This Venus-Jupiter isn't as indulgent (or is, within some sort of limit), unless it's on being OCD with the details and over-analysis, typical Virgo vibes (Jupiter is in Virgo still, remember). Venus in Cancer is a heat-seeking missile, defining what is Top Priority.

Finances can swing either way under this one: too much of a good thing could be "Credit, Debt, Greed". The upside is that we end up on the receiving end of some sort of blessing, perhaps financial perhaps in some other form.

Remaining loving and nurturing of ourselves and others, through the darker Pluto chapters, is the way ahead. Jupiter in Virgo is the light at the end of the tunnel, which promises that we WILL get there, to the other side, if we continue just taking one small step forward, one giant Jupiter leap of faith at a time.

If you're looking to part with some hard-earned money for something absolutely worthwhile, give yourself an Astrology Report from my Store, They're super popular, with good reason and some of the most affordable you'll find online.

Live and Love Lively,

Venus in Cancer opposing Pluto in Capricorn

 

See this aspect as the clash between Sweet Caring Mom (Venus in Cancer) and Rigid, Unyielding Father (Pluto in Capricorn).

That symbolism should explain a lot of what is manifesting outwardly - and inwardly. 
 
A clash between Warring Parents? 
The Needy versus the Power Hungry?
 Care or Control?

Flip it and we could have the Emotional Manipulator V the One Who Enforces the Boundary.

* Love, Art and our Enjoyment of Life are challenged under the current conditions, by either 'outdated rules', 'pushy politics' or 'obsessive-compulsive control'.

* Finances: time to Pluto-trim and figure out if what you *want* versus what you really, truly *need*. What's your bottom line?

Interestingly enough, Cancer as the USA and Capricorn as the UK suggests an intense ripple effect within both countries, especially after the choice England made to leave the European Union.

Let your Love deepen, even - or especially - as the Shadows momentarily grow...

Full Moon in Sagittarius conjunct GANESHA, Mercury squares Neptune






The Full Moon waning above us, was Full at 29 degrees suggesting some stuff have reached its natural conclusion, along with uncertainty of what lies ahead. It's too late to change some things, and acceptance may play a part in the current proceedings. In Sag, things get blown out of proportion. Great when you're in an all-you-can-eat buffet, not so great when you're having a bad day.

The degree symbol is THE POPE BLESSING THE FAITHFUL. Counting Blessings, and Maintaining Faith help us more than ever right now (and are sensible prerequisites for any Saturn-in-Sagittarius passage). The Full Moon was conjunct asteroid GANESHA (in Capricorn) -  the Remover (and Placer!) of Obstacles, so let that symbolism guide you in relation to the walls you find yourself up against and the ones you have managed to scale so far. Credit where credit is due.

 Finally, Mercury in Gemini (or sparkling and open minds) is once again (since retro) challenged by a square from Neptune (illusions & delusions). Our minds are more susceptible from lower level Neptune, namely anything that distracts us from our Soul's true calling, and, thankfully, anything that leads us back to it.

Proceed carefully, watch for misinterpretations, manipulations, duplicity and general dodginess. And open your mind up to Beautiful Visions, Fantastical Possibilities. This is the passage of the Daydream and Diveinely Inspired Acts of Self-Expression and Self-less altruism.

Solar Eclipse @ 18 Pisces - March 8th 2016






                                           SOLAR ECLIPSE at 18 PISCES - March 8th

New awakenings and awareness; dawning realizations of our ability to take an emotional blow and not be obliterated but instead pull our fragmented selves (Pisces, the sign that combines all the others) together to become wiser, stronger, a Healer (Pisces higher) instead of remaining forever a wounded victim (Pisces lower) or becoming a 'Hurter'. We find this now through surrender, admitting emotional defeat (sadness, depression, grief, regret, shame and so forth) then releasing long-held or pent up feelings. Tears, outbursts, sadness, sudden rage, sometimes exhilaration accompany this Solar Eclipse (along with the beautifully haunting music, poetry, movies and art that are birthed around this time) that sees us all experiencing a profound new awareness of how we're feeling and how connected our internal world is to the external world we awaken to after every dream,.

The New Moon is opposed by Jupiter in Virgo reminding us that tolerance of our innate sensitivity, fragility, vulnerability must be not clouded by the many voices of criticism around and within us. Too many details pollute the Pisces Solar Eclipse vision of how the overall feeling of the desired outcome will be. We may find fortune in the laying out of a plan, with the necessary or possible steps to take ahead, but we could also lose the psychic feeling of the very thing we want to see made manifest (Virgo). Pisces holds the hologram of the complete picture, Virgo brings in the pieces to build it.

Conjunct the South Node, this Eclipse screams: Quit chasing old emotional tunnels that empty out in familiar bottomless bogs (south Node in Pisces)! while remaining true to your Soul, by honoring every feeling and not getting hooked into acting out any old emotional material.
Aided by an opportunistic sextile from Pluto, this is spiritual surgery and cosmic colonics at its finest, whatever you strip off of yourself now, can be gone for good if you're willing to give them up.  A  wise (if judgmental) Saturn square from Sagittarius watches and does not allow us to cross the line or break the law of our own individual and collective lives. He reminds us that faith better be a part of our plan and actions (as well as humor, common sense, optimism and commitment!) for any dream to come true now.

Overall, a dreamy Eclipse that has a few triggers in place to speed up our spiritual evolution. The old is reawakened, for better or worse. Often both. New beginnings contain important seeds of the past. Feelings run high, as we all seek some form of release, surrender This is 2016's spiritual vortex - throw your karmic garbage in, become lighter without it.

A visual: A majestic waterfall cascading down on you, cleansing your head and heart  of all things hurtful or heavy.​

Healing The Heart: Venus Retrograde (Jul 26 - Sep 6)








In 8 days, Venus will turn retrograde (Jul 26 - Sep 6), coinciding with a major influx of Relationship Ripples - from old haunts, to current ghouls, the ones that got away to the ones you ran away from. Love (Venus) must now confront her own shadow-self  - narcissism, manipulation, selfishness and criticism /the need for Perfection - since she begins her retro in detail-driven-Virgo.

Look up and you've no doubt seen her shining BRIGHTLY above us, as she paired with Jupiter. Financial matters (also Venus) are re-examined - from spending habits, to credit cards, bank accounts and the possible pursuit of luxury and 'things' to fill a void in our sense of self-worth (another Venus attribute). Are we living beyond our means Or way under our full potential?

Venus is currently at the final degree of Leo - the pursuit of personal pleasure is necessary. So does creativity in all it's forms: music, art, theatre, dance, childhood freedom. Find a way to express what is in your Heart now, while you still can.

For without the strong self-pride we learn while Venus passes through Leo, we pass insecurely and uncertainly under Venus' Virgo critical eye.


 Enjoy yourself right now.That in itself is an Act of Love. And then prepare to Work on Yourself as Love moves us from high drama to a low, calmer tide of self-examination and the exploration of what is not working as it could or should in our pockets and in our hearts...

Did you know you can compare your Chart with someone else's and also create a third chart - the Chart of the Relationship Itself? Very revealing and highly recommended.

They're the most ordered Reports at the site, for very good reason. Check out the RELATIONSHIP Reports if you're in the throes of partnership changes...

Love Thyself!
