New Moon at 17 Virgo:  Sunday, September 9th at 11:01am Pacific.

Virgo, the Virgin, is an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. We just came out of a Mercury retrograde, so things are moving forward again after a retrograde summer of delay and introspection.

Many of the planets are in great places right now i.e. in their rulership or exaltation.

Mercury is exalted in Virgo.
Venus in her rulership in Libra.
Mars just went direct; exalted in Capricorn.
Saturn is direct in it’s rulership of Capricorn.

That’s a lot of earthy energy in the skies.

The element Earth is about being practical and manifesting things. With Neptune (the planet of dreams) in it’s natural home of Pisces, we have a wonderful opportunity to turn our dreams into realities. You have to make it real though, and Virgo helps us look at our organization and habits. What is it you want to bring into your life? Are you organized and spending time each day on achieving it?

Virgo is self improvement, details, analysis, planning, perfection and service. We make a practical plan of action to manifest the huge ideas spawned this summer with the Leo sun. Virgo is pure in nature (the Virgin), and is symbolized by a single woman standing alone on her own two feet. Such a powerful image for women today. She is whole unto herself, independent, and can make decisions that actualize her potential.

Virgo integrates; bring the parts together into a whole – but can also be a harsh self critic with the constant striving for perfection. We need to integrate gentleness, self love, and allowing ourselves and others to be imperfect while we walk out practical path of manifestation.

The main thing is to face the reality of your life. If you’re able to do that you can accomplish anything, because the rules of this planet are based in physical reality. Grasping onto fantasies keeps our egos in charge – feeling that we can accomplish things with no effort. We have a spiritual need as humans to surrender our egos and find meaning.

…so see where you’re headed
…do the Work to make your reality better
…take responsibility for how you’ve lived up until now
…start TODAY!

Week of August 27th: Mars Direct

Mars Direct on Monday at 7:05am Pacific.  Things start moving forward again. Our ambitions and desires are reignited and gain traction. Aries and Scorpio people feel reborn anew, and everyone experiences a nice outflowing of energy. If you have something you want to do, there will be less resistance now.

Sunday: Sun trine Uranus + Sun trine Saturn. Time to turn the page on something you’ve outgrown and start a new phase. You cannot conform to other people’s demands anymore on how to live your life. These aspects encourage independence and revolution on an Earth level (money, job, health). Are there some aspects of your basic nature that you have been ignoring? Spend some time creating your personal art.

Monday, August 27  – Moon in Pisces. We are still under the influence of the Full Moon from late Saturday evening. Intuition, creativity and music appreciation are at full volume. Express your artistic passions and reconnect with your spirituality.

Tuesday, August 28 – Moon into Aries at 9:35am. There will be a rush of excitement, and the feeling of rebirth will be rampant today. DO reinvent yourself, but avoid headstrong behavior and confronting strangers. Mars is Direct, but is still stationary over our heads, so passions could be running high. Focus on your ambitions and let go of other people’s dramas.

Wednesday, August 29 – Moon in Aries. A strong Mars day. Take action on anything, really. Focus on teamwork, but if the opportunity arises, take the lead on things. Re-examine your goals and see if you’re on track.

Thursday, August 30 – Moon into Taurus at 6:30pm Pacific. Uranus is also in the area, so expect something sudden appearing out of the blue with regards to work/money. Take practical steps towards achieving your ideas and goals.

Friday, August 31 – Moon in Taurus continues. A strong day for romance and love. Get out into nature and appreciate the earth’s natural beauty. Definitely a date night. Show more interest in what your date wants to do instead of your agenda.

Saturday, September 1 – Moon in Taurus all day too. Get out into the garden, cook a big meal for your friends, go for a hike or have some leisure time with your significant other. Follow established plans and relax.

Sunday, September 2 – Moon in Gemini. Get out and be sociable!

 

 

New Moon of the Fish

New Moon in Pisces: March 17, 2018 at 6:12am Pacific.
Mars into Capricorn at 9:40am

This New Moon is extremely healing to our personal, emotional and spiritual lives. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is conjunct the Sun and Moon in Pisces on Saturday. This brings extra depth to the healing vibe of this aspect. We have explored our deep sensitivities over the last month with the Sun and it’s entourage swimming through the sign of the fish. This New Moon is the final revelation for our growth over the past month, and it’s a good time to be in tune with our instincts and where the flow of our life is taking us.

Events in our lives are unfolding that spur deep healing on our past emotional wounds, so we can let our baggage go. With the Sun’s entrance into Aries on Tuesday, heralding the Spring Equinox, we begin a fresh new astrological year, so this weekend is the final purification.

If we reflect on the past month, we will see the enormous healing we have undertaken in our emotional lives and patterns.

Austin Coppock:
“Although the New Moon does not technically take place until around dawn on Saturday, this is more the night of the New Moon than tomorrow. As the Sun and Moon come together in Pisces, look back over the last month, and reflect on what understandings emerged. What pearls will you walk away from the Sun’s time in oceanic Pisces this year?”

https://smartmindmag.com/march-17th-the-most-powerful-healing-new-moon/?c=educate:

“On March 17th, the sun, the new moon, and the planetoid Chiron will all be huddled together gracing the sky in the sensitive zodiac sign of Pisces. This may sound cosy and blissful, as Chiron is an immensely healing planet, Pisces is intuitive, soft, and sensual, and the sun is warm, energising, and illuminating. However, the moon will be at its darkest and in its shadow stage. This means that any painful lessons that we have tried to ignore and deny will be forcing their way to the surface, and they won’t disappear, so we’ll have no option but to confront and deal with them.
Emotional and sensitive Pisces will be doing its best to highlight our unhealed emotional wounds, fears, and insecurities. But thankfully, Chiron is right on hand to offer empathy, compassion, and gentle, soothing, loving care.
During this new moon we will likely notice we feel pulled toward others in the hope that they will do the work for us and validate our irrational thoughts and feelings, even though it would benefit us more if we worked on self-love and self-acceptance as a way of calming our ego.
When our ego is out of control our mind creates chaotic circumstances, and if we believe all the drama going on in our head, what starts off quietly in our internal world quickly manifests into the external world in a disorderly and dysfunctional way.

Low self-esteem is one of the major issues that will be arising on this new moon, even for those who think they are self-confident and self-assured. Therefore, we will notice that the collective energy is one that is seeking out external support, encouragement, and guidance, rather than learning how to find and embrace these things within ourselves.
Validation can be a beautiful bonding tool for connection. However, we should never have to seek or demand it from anyone, although many of us regularly do. Validation is only meaningful when it is offered freely and sincerely, and not when we have had to force it out of someone through tantrums or manipulation. It doesn’t need words. We just need to know we are safe, held, and deeply accepted, and that is enough to calm our insecurities and fears, whether validation is self-given or comes from another person.
Chiron has been resting in the sign of Pisces since May 2010 and won’t be leaving until March 2019, and while it is fused there it will be doing a tremendous amount of work to help us become aware of our open, festering wounds that persistently taunt and trigger us. Whenever the sun and moon are in close transition to Chiron we receive the opportunity to notice what is causing us the most amount of emotional pain, and to see exactly where our pain is rooted.
The majority of the wounds that Chiron awakens us to are the ones that begun in our early childhood or adolescent years, so they are often firmly embedded in, causing us to feel like they are part of who we are. The moment we notice exactly what is causing so much hurt and anguish within our psyche, we create a tremendous shift that propels us on a healing journey so we can rationally process what we went through, why we are still holding on to underlying emotions and beliefs, and, most importantly, how we can transcend through it to reach a place of inner peace and bliss.
Although it may seem easier to distract ourselves and not pay attention to what goes on below the surface, when we ignore our core wounds, all that happens is they will cry out for attention in a variety of harmful ways, and this results in trauma and destruction in many of our personal relationships. We will subconsciously keep replaying the same stories over and again in the hope that whatever is upset, rejected, suppressed, or angry on the inside will eventually get the chance to be heard, healed, and freed.
Chiron is the exact energy needed to dig in deep and softly touch the areas that are raw and tender, as parts of us have felt lost and abandoned while we distracted ourselves within the busyness of life. We may have tried to mask or numb these aching aspects of our internal selves by turning to toxic relationships, alcohol, drugs, or addictions of various kinds that may seem harmless at first glance, but on a soul level are serving to sustain the damage we have held for years.
This bruising, that almost all of us hold within our emotional bodies, may regularly be touched and triggered. When that happens eruptions occur and our emotions will flare up, seemingly out of nowhere. New and full moons are intense energetic periods, and are known for highlighting and magnifying our unhealed and repressed emotional wounds. This is why during these amplified lunar phases we often feel tightly coiled and as though the slightest irritation could send us off balance and reeling toward a mini meltdown.
Chiron is here to support our personal growth so that we shift from wounded, pain-filled beings into free-spirited, light-hearted, carefree souls, purely through the realisation and fearless self-acceptance that our shadowy dark side—that we keep hidden—is nothing to feel scared of or ashamed about. We can reach in and hold out a hand to our inner child that has sat in the darkness tortured by abandonment and rejection. Slowly we can gain the trust of the parts of ourselves that we have pushed away and dismissed, and we can offer an unconditionally loving embrace to show that we accept each part of ourselves; the dark, the light, and every shade in between.
New moons are a time of new beginnings and they open the doorway to our subconscious mind; therefore, this lunation deliver the ideal space to softly and slowly travel inward so that we can delicately communicate with all that we’ve pushed aside. When we do this we will notice magnificent transformation not just in the way we feel about ourselves, but also how we connect and communicate with the people around us, particularly within our most intimate relationships.
When we are entering a healing phase, it is vital that we nurture and nourish ourselves, and as water is a powerful healing element we can enhance our healing by indulging ourselves with by soaking in an Epsom Salt bath and adding a soothing essential oil, or if possible going somewhere where it is possible to bathe outdoors under the starlit sky.
If we are staying indoors during the new moon we can put on music that speaks to our soul and relax fully knowing that we are safe, supported, and held in the lunar energy that is emanating from above. Once we feel settled and peaceful we can then ask the questions we have been longing to find answers to, so we connect to our innermost desires. When we locate what our heart longs for, we will also then discover what painful emotions are creating resistance, and from there we will find a way to heal the wounds that have caused us to be weighed down and to remain stuck, repeating similar scenarios for so long.
All that is needed is silence, faith, and the fearlessness to travel inward knowing that whatever is unveiled during this healing process is perfectly acceptable, as we are all divine beings and we are all already perfect and precious—regardless of the stories our critical mind might tell.
This Pisces new moon, with Chiron’s healing influence, is the greatest opportunity for wound-healing we will receive throughout this entire year. It is a temporary portal that allows us access to the darkest parts of our soul, but to enter, we have to take a deep breath, be willing to be vulnerable, and bravely dive in to the core of our being. Responsibilities may be pressing you to come up with a solution but it’s questionable whether the choices you’re making are leading you down the right path or whether you’re going down a rabbit hole on some wild, mushroom-gathering mission.
What if I told you that whatever you’re doing lately (or not doing at all) is actively contributing to the dissolution of what’s not working for you? What if deep down, your intuition was guiding you to focus on those things that are somehow contributing to your discomfort, disillusionment, disorder and despair – even disease?

It’s possible that what you’re doing, however creative, is purposely serving to break down any ego-attachments.
Look at any suffering as a voluntary choice to go against your own spiritual evolution. How much do you want it if it only brings your mind/body down? How much do you need it? Either way – dissolution, destruction, extinction, transcendence… to Spirit, it’s the same thing.

Autumnal Equinox: horoscopes

llipton9.jpg

Fall Equinox at 7:21am, Sun into Libra.
MERCURY DIRECT at 10:31pm last night, 9/21.
Libra: Love, Beauty, Harmony, Socializing, Parties, Negotiation, Friendship, Teamwork.

Welcome to Fall! The Autumnal Equinox marks the midpoint between Summer and Winter. Today we have equal day and equal night. Libra is about balance, harmony, justice, and partnerships of ALL kinds.

Today is referred to as the festival of Mabon. This is the second harvest festival of the year, the first being Lammas (August 1st) and the third being Halloween (October 31st). Whatever was started in March this year is now coming to fruition. It’s harvest season, where we see the result of our labors. We reap what we have sown. It’s the time to take stock of where you are in your life right now – what you’ve brought forth and what you still want to manifest.

Today we feel the turn of the wheel of the year. Standing in the middle of equal daylight to equal nighttime, we look at BALANCE. Are we out of balance in our lives? Are we taking care of ourselves? Are we working hard AND making time for our dreams and having fun too?

Mabon also relates to mid life; to our 40’s and 50’s when we have accomplished some things, but also might harbor regrets. The Equinox is a time to give yourself credit for all the wonderful things you’ve created and the positive difference you’ve made in the world. Honor your courage! And how much smarter you are now than when you were young.

This holiday was pivotal in ancient times, since a good final harvest was crucial to surviving the winter months ahead.  Relationships are reassessed so we can decide who is best to take into the harsh winter with us. If someone is draining your energy, now might be the time to let go.

Current Astrology:

The Sun, Jupiter, and Venus are now in Libra, which is BIG energy. The Sun and Jupiter are the largest bodies in our system and radiate expanding, positive light. Jupiter will be in Libra for the next couple of years, giving new insights into the themes of relationships, teamwork, creativity, beauty and luxury.

Jupiter rules our beliefs, faith and truth. Now that Jupiter is in Libra, we will redefine our beliefs about partnerships. There will be a renewed interest to connect, make peace, and find balance. Meanwhile, Venus (ruler of Libra) is moving into Scorpio tomorrow giving a lot of intensity to the current themes in our lives. Avoid socially awkward situations and causing drama.

The horoscopes below take the Sun into account, as well as the ruler of your sign. Be sure to read your Sun sign AND Rising sign. The Rising Sign is the most accurate reflection of your chart when reading most horoscopes. You can calculate your Rising sign here.

Capricorn:  The Goat
     Saturn, your ruler, is still moving through Sagittarius in your House of Spiritual Connection. What’s the reality of your ambitions, and are you including your spiritual life in your plans? Do they still suit you and do you need a change? Saturn isn’t big on changes, but DOES support your climb up the steep mountain to reach your goal.

Kinda boring stuff for artistic Pisces, but with the Sun and Jupiter there it’s a great time to negotiate with authority and solidify your relationships. You can attract helpful people to your life right now. This house also relates to SEX, so it could be a hot and steamy year for you!
