Trust yourself

Holding Your Own

Trust yourself. Trust what you know.

Sometimes, it is hard to stand in our own truth and trust what we know, especially when others would try to convince us otherwise.

In these cases, others may be dealing with issues of guilt and shame. They may have their own agenda. They may be immersed in denial. They would like us to believe that we do not know what we know; they would like us not to trust ourselves; they would prefer to engage us in their nonsense.

We don’t have to forfeit our truth or our power to others. That is codependency.

Believing lies is dangerous. When we stop trusting our truth, when we repress our instincts, when we tell ourselves there must be something wrong with us for feeling what we feel or believing what we believe, we deal a deadly blow to our self and our health.

When we discount that important part of ourselves that knows what is the truth, we cut ourselves off from our center. We feel crazy. We get into shame, fear, and confusion. We can’t get our bearings when we allow someone to pull the rug from under us.

This does not mean that we are never wrong. But we are not always wrong.

Be open. Stand in our truth. Trust what you know. And refuse to buy into denial, nonsense, bullying, or coercion that would like to take you off course.

Ask to be shown the truth, clearly – not by the person trying to manipulate or convince you, but by yourself, your Higher Power, and the Universe.

Today, I will trust my truth, my instincts, and my ability to ground myself in reality. I will not allow myself to be swayed by bullying, manipulating, games, dishonesty, or people with peculiar agendas.

We begin this week with a fallow, 4th quarter Moon. We are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new conditions. This is the last week of the Sun traveling through Libra, and with the Sun and Venus squaring Pluto, we are facing the toxic sides of our relationships. There’s a New Moon ECLIPSE in Scorpio coming next Tuesday, October 25th as well. All of this happening while Saturn, Mars and Pluto stand still in the sky.

Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Scorpio cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

Wednesday, October 19th: Moon in Leo, and everyone wants attention. Sun/Venus both square Pluto in the morning, revealing the underbelly of relationships. Be gentle when discussing issues with anyone today. Repressed emotions and fears rise to the surface, driving us towards security. Also, Mercury opposes Chiron giving voice to the health and healing of deep emotional wounds. It’s a transformative day.

As above, so below.
As without, so within.
When we look “out there”, it reflects and mirrors what’s within, which is one reason I like to look at astrology. The Sun is in Libra now, we had a New Moon yesterday, and the Fall Equinox last week. The metaphoric seeds we planted last March have been ripening all year, and we harvest them now. There are aspects this week that will give us real opportunities to change our world for the better.

Sunday’s New Moon in Libra is unfolding this week, so there will be continued developments in partnerships, agreements, romance and diplomacy. Practice the art of balance. The 4th quarter starts next Saturday. This is Libra season, so take some time to reflect on your relationships, and how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Libra cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

Thursday, September 29th: Moon in Scorpio goes void-of-course at 2:20pm Pacific for the rest of the day, so get your important stuff done in the morning. Also, Venus enters Libra which is her happy place. The planet of Love is home here, and can fully express her grace, manners, wittiness, and power. Women’s energies will be strong for the next month, and we can make incredible progress especially with creativity.

Friday, September 30th: Moon in Sagittarius. Life is imaginative and dreamy today as Venus opposes Neptune. This aspect happens once every 18 months and can indicate wild imagination and/or delusion in the arenas of art and romance. It’s on the Virgo-Pisces axis so we can also access inspiration and compassion. Remember your dreams! This is a great night to meet someone and share lovely moments, just watch out for fantasies taking over the reality.

Week of September 19th

Valentine Cameron Prinsep – At the First Touch of Winter, Summer Fades Away, 1897

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 26 Virgo
Mercury RETROGRADE at 4 Libra
Venus at 17 Virgo (not good, in her fall)
Mars at 15 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 4 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 19 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus RETROGRADE at 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 23 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 14 Taurus

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon in Libra on Sunday, September 25th. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our relationship blocks – especially romantic ones. It’s a good time to get clear on what you’re looking for in your love life. Venus, the planet of Love, is in her fall right now which means she is unable to express her true nature. It makes everyone, particularly women, less trusting and more critical than usual. The dark of the Moon, leading up to a New Moon in Libra, is a time for self examination about what you are projecting onto the people around you. Also, we are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new conditions.

Everyone is going through some growth challenges right now. On Thursday, September 22nd the Sun enters Libra and we have the Fall Equinox! It’s such a relief after this brutal Summer. The Fall Equinox is a portal to our inner selves AND one of the most magical times of the year. This week is a major turning point, and if things have been feeling stagnant, you will see shifts happening.

Wednesday, September 21st: Moon in Leo on the last day of Summer is kind of perfect. The Sun’s influence is waning, and we are heading into the darkness. Moon opposes Saturn making us acutely aware of the passage of time. Don’t get pessimistic or slip off to the dark side. Get some last rays of sunshine and exercise. Moon squaring Uranus can be eye opening. Leo Moon brings style. Time to dress up with some glitz and glam.

Thursday,  September 22nd: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY! Look out for egos, tempers and stubbornness. Anything can happen during a void period, and this is a long one! There could be posturing with the Leo Moon demanding to be the center of attention. FALL EQUINOX. Sun enters LIBRA at 6:04pm Pacific. Equal day equal night. This is a special day. Think about the “seeds” you planted in March this year, are they bearing fruit now? What do you want to harvest?

Week of August 22nd: New Moon in Virgo

John Dee Performing an Experiment before Elizabeth I, Henry Gillard Glindoni (1852-1913),

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Virgo
Mercury DIRECT at 24 Virgo (exalted)
Venus at 11 Leo
Mars at 0 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 7 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 21 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus at STATIONING 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 24 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 17 Taurus

The Sun moved into Virgo on Monday, heralding the beginning of harvest season! The transition from Leo to Virgo is profound. With the Sun in Leo, we reveled in our true identity, and practiced new ways of expressing it to the world; now with Virgo we organize our lives and get to work.

Moon wise, we are in the last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Virgo this Saturday the 27th. The week ahead is about wrapping things up, resolving issues, paying debts, and reflecting on our lives.

Mars entered Gemini on Saturday for the next seven months! That’s March 2023! In Gemini, Mars lets go of his armor and becomes a social butterfly, focusing on communication, solving puzzles and battles of strategy. People with anxiety might need extra support during this time, because Mars adds electricity to our nervous system. A good place to focus your attention for the next seven months is on freedom and liberation. Where do you need to set yourself free? Let yourself off the hook? Have some FUN and adventures? This transit is spectacular for studying a new subject, or applying your mind to solve any type of challenge.

Thursday, August 25th: Moon in Leo, and Mercury moves into Libra, the great balancer. Relationships of all kinds will be blessed this month with real understanding and progress between people. Mercury in Libra makes us aware of all sides of a situation, especially the viewpoints of others. The key is balance. Also today, we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for rebirth this Saturday with the New Moon in Virgo. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up so we can release them.

This is the last days with the Sun in its natural home of Leo. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Leo, and into Virgo next Monday, August 22nd. The Full Moon last Thursday will continue to unfold this week. A portal has opened, giving you the possibility of a new life. The portal opened in your mind, your relationships, your work, and in everything you do. Last Thursday’s Full Moon at 17 Aquarius was incredibly powerful. If you have ANY planets near 17 Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo or Taurus – you FELT it, and the changes will be stronger.

Wednesday, August 17th: Moon in Taurus. Don’t try and negotiate with authority figures today, let them win the argument. Also, things slow waaaay down with the Moon in Taurus, and we indulge in sensual delights. Get yourself an excellent dinner because Taurus loves food. Mercury is SO HAPPY in Virgo right now, so today is fabulous for Air Magick of any kind. Set necessary limits and get to work.

Thursday, August 18th: Moon in Taurus: enjoy nature, and avoid reasoning with stubborn people. Venus in Leo trines Jupiter in Aries at 1:03 am which boosts the power of women. This aspect brings childlike play, creativity and self expression. We lead from the heart and forge a path ahead! Merge with the sensual side of Taurus, and indulge yourself in romance, food, or nature.

Each of us is a unique person, and our uniqueness wants to shine. We begin this week with the New Moon at 5 Leo that occurred Thursday, and continues to unfold this week. Begin new projects involving creativity and self expression. Leo is the most powerful of all zodiac signs, because it is the only one ruled by the Sun. Now we get to play around, be childlike, explore beauty, be romantic, goof off, create art and be physical. It symbolizes our souls, and their EXPRESSION; it’s a week to roar like a lion.

Monday and Tuesday we had the exact conjunction of Mars, the North Node of the Moon, AND Uranus, which symbolizes a HUGE breakthrough. This hasn’t happened in at least 84 years, and will create a pivotal moment for each of us. Its about birthing your IDEAL SELF: who you want to be, who you think you are – the BEST version of yourself. Uranus is visionary, the North Node is our future, and Mars gives us drive and ambition. This is happening in the sign of Taurus, which is self sufficient, independent, grounded, fertile, sensuous, and luxurious. Expect a new vision of life ahead that creates stability and awakens the senses.

Some astrologers are worried this could mean Uranus causing drama and issues regarding the supply chain, land ownership, crops, cattle, and money. Let’s hope it’s more on the visionary side of things. If you have any planets near 19 Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, this is a HUGE moment for you that could send you in another direction. If you want a brief reading on how this will effect your chart, you can book one here.

Thursday, August 4th: Moon in Scorpio and Mercury freshly in Virgo. Our minds are at their sharpest for the next few weeks. It’s the perfect time to make some solid decisions. A Scorpio Moon is a good time to figure out what your deepest needs are and how to fulfill them. Nurture your soul and listen.

Friday, August 5th: Moon in Scorpio enters her 2nd quarter. The Scorpio Moon also opposes all the craziness with Mars and Uranus on the other side of the sky in Taurus. The best way to handle it? Roll up our sleeves and get to work. We will be driven today, and can make solid progress where we focus our attention. Keep the other person’s perspective in mind before taking action.

Week of July 11th: Full Moon in Capricorn

Sun at 22 Cancer
Mercury DIRECT at 11 Cancer
Venus at 21 Gemini
Mars at 4 Taurus
Jupiter at 8 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 24 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE 25 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn
North Node at 20 Taurus

This week is kinda tough because its impacted by Saturn and Pluto, the two planets that gave rise to the pandemic. These two don’t fool around – they demand we connect with truth, reality and our shadow sides. What’s the reality of your life, and what needs tending to? Is something blocking you from moving forward?

The week culminates with an earthy, Saturnian Capricorn Full Moon on Wednesday. It will be near Pluto, which has us drill down and get honest about our lives. If it sounds heavy, it is. Capricorn is a heavy sign, and there’s no goofing off. Saturn demands hard work in order to earn rewards. This is the fruition of what’s been building this month, and it engages Pluto: the planet of shadow and transformation. We each end the week in a different place than where we started. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the week ahead as well as the next six months. We will have peak experiences with our ambitions, career, and personal story.

Wednesday, July 13th: Full Moon in Capricorn at 11:38am. The Moon goes void-of-course at 6:17pm Pacific. The void Moon plus the heavy Saturn energy means it’s not a good night to go out and socialize. The Moon is in her detriment here – uncomfortable, heavy, and unable to express herself. Authorities will be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise along with power struggles.

Mercury in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus around 5:15pm, which can fire up our intellect AND bring surprises. Try new approaches to earthly matters, especially at work. Life starts feeling different.

Venus square Neptune at 10:24pm Pacific means avoid over indulging in addictive behaviors! It can cause relationship troubles. Instead, put that passion into creating something artistic, challenging, and beautiful.

Full Moon at 25 Scorpio last night at 9:14pm Pacific. The Moon is weak here, in her fall, meaning that emotions are not easily expressed. Scorpio is the Halloween sign, representing Autumn and decay. Taurus represents springtime, which emerges from the decay as the blooming and flowering of life. Both are dependent on the other and are deeply tied to life on earth. A Scorpio Moon can bring up issues around intimacy and vulnerability, power and control. Use this week to cut the cords of the past and put your energy into the present.

This is the development, the fruition, of whatever was happening two weeks ago. It’s a solar eclipse, which heightens everything and creates a “do or die” attitude. The Full Moon also squares Saturn in Aquarius. We look at our subconscious motivations and turn toward a new direction.

Plotinus wrote: “The stars are like letters that inscribe themselves at every moment in the sky. Everything in the world is full of signs. All events are coordinated. All things depend on each other. Everything breathes together.”

Monday, May 16th: Moon in Sagittarius, but last night’s Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio is in full effect. No risk taking or pushing boundaries today, focus on yourself and your needs. Venus is conjunct Chiron, which promotes HUGE healing in relationships. Take a fresh look at your inner wounds and be open for new realizations. Today is transformative, so take an unwavering look at your shadow side.

Tuesday, May 17th: Moon in Sagittarius all day. Look at goals and aim for the highest ideals. Jupiter is squaring Lilith for the next couple of weeks, which can expand acts of authenticity and boundary setting. This aspect activates women, self esteem and fearlessness. Also last night we had a biggie – Mars conjunct Neptune near midnight. Strong energy for artistic, romantic, musical or spiritual pursuits. Hopefully no bad news regarding water.

Wednesday, May 18th: Moon in Capricorn, which is the Moon’s detriment. Another tough day for emotional sharing, so hold off if you can. The rest of the week is about hard work and earned rewards, because Saturn insists on commitment. The Full Moon is still unfolding, so there will be continued developments with current issues.

Thursday, May 19th: Moon in Capricorn all day so we follow our drives and ambitions. Do not seek concessions from authority figures – leave that until next week. Take stock of life and strengthen the foundation. Mercury sextile Jupiter is exact which lightens the mood.

Friday, May 20th: Moon in Aquarius. The Sun leaves Taurus for GEMINI at 6:23pm Pacific! We move from an Earth sign to an Air sign, which makes all of us feel lighter. With Gemini, our minds and social circles are activated. Lots of chattiness… talking is the way forward.

Saturday, May 21st: Moon in Aquarius and Sun conjunct Mercury is exact. These aspects, plus the Suns’ entrance into Gemini, make this a very “Airy” day. Mercury is retrograde though, so reworking old ideas or reorganizing your life are the best outlets. Air energy is mental activities, studying, short trips, puzzles, communication and community. Enjoy learning and good conversation.

Sunday, May 22nd: Moon in Pisces enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. Mercury moves backwards into Taurus and immediately squares Saturn (in Aquarius) in the morning. Guard against negative thinking or arguments with authorities. Release old habits and thinking patterns.
