What’s Going On – the Good, the Bad, and the Good

The Good, The Bad, and The Good

This week has some rich and fortuitous astrological happenings, but before getting to the good parts, I want to join my voice in expressing sadness regarding the violence events that occurred in the US recently. People often ask me: ‘what’s going on in astrology; why is this happening?

Leo New Moon – Shine Your Light

And, the stars can always provide an answer. . .but it does not alleviate the pain. Generally, Uranus, Mars, and Pluto are culprits in violence.

To land an astrological analysis, I’d say that this the events of August 3 and 4 were backflow from the full moon lunar eclipse of July 16th. This eclipse activated the current Saturn/Pluto conjunction, and it surely has stirred up issues that will be a part of our social discussion into 2020.

Mercury stationing direct on July 31, could also be a player in this astro profile. While retrograde, (during the eclipse) Mercury dipped into the collective unconscious, and once freed from the chains of retrograde, the killers stepped up to take action. The sad truth is that this is a complex and painful issue with many tentacles that dip into our hearts, and there are no simple answers. 

With that said – this week – really – holds a promise of better times. On Wednesday, August 7th, the Sun trines Jupiter which is a classic feel good aspect. Be on the lookout for an opportunity (or two) and remember it never hurts to help ‘fate’ along by taking action.

Thursday, August 8th is another favorable day with Venus trine Jupiter. All Right! This is another classic indicator of good fortune. So, although your heart may be weary, don’t forget to allow joy and goodness into your life. All of this happens in the fire signs of Leo and Sagittarius, too – the classic ‘good luck’ signs.

On Sunday, August 11th there are THREE unusual events happening on the same day. Uranus stations direct, Uranus stations retrograde, and Mercury enters Leo! Uranus represents your quest for freedom, and Uranus retrograde is a time to refine and review your values through your Higher Self connection.  Questions of the 8th house appear, such as: what will you give your energy to? Where do you continually lose energy? And, how can you fix it?

Jupiter moving into direct motion is a signal that the days of your life are passing away, and wasting time is also an 8th house issue.  – Jupiter direct says: ‘Precious time wasted is worse than losing money; it’s a loss of your most valuable human resource – the days of your life.’

And, Mercury in Leo – well, just think of it as the stars are giving you permission to ROAR  😊

You have an amazing planetary invitation in the week ahead. We all must acknowledge the pain of life in this 21st century, but do not let the assault to you senses make you so dull that you cannot experience and express the joy that is also your Divine gift.

In Love and Service,

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the Stars

Leo New Moon – Shine Your Light

Leo New Moon – Shine Your Light

Like the welcoming of a baby, this New Moon is birthed with anticipation. The actual time of New Moon is just before midnight on Wednesday, July 31 in the Eastern US and in the early morning of August 1st Greenwich Time. Just like the birth of a King, there has been an excitement building up.  Some of it is hype, and some of it is real.  

Leo New Moon – Shine Your Light

The hype is that because it’s the second x that it has special meaning or power. Actually, if you live in Europe or many other parts of the world, the date for this New Moon is August 1. Then, there will be two New Moons in August for you; Aug 1 and Aug 30. Here in the US, we have two New Moons in July – it’s a calendar thing.

Leo New Moon = Super-Moon

But, here is how it’s ‘real’. Wednesday’s Leo New Moon is also a Supermoon, which means that although you cannot see it, the moon is closer to earth. Astronomers call this perigee, and even though we cannot see the moon, it will cause extreme tides, both higher and lower than usual.

Astrology teaches that if this moon can influence extreme tides on the oceans, it has an added impact on you, too.

So, what is this royal birth all about?

For starters, Mercury stations direct just a half hour after the exact New Moon. That is surely one cause for celebration. I am developing a new program – Find Your Power Center – and all month have been working via email with several people.  At times, it’s been classic Mercury retrograde when I have explained something (that was misinterpreted), submitted a document (that didn’t go through), or asked a question (that never got answered) . . . The good news is that I’m sharing the banner below for my new online program which is set to launch on Sept 3!

Leo celebration

Another reason many people are in a jovial mood is that most of August is a Leo celebration. We enter August with both Venus and Mars in Leo. Also, Mercury re-enters Leo on the 11th, , the same day Jupiter stations direct. All this fire sign activity creates a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius.  It’s kind of like the planets are kicking the bad guys out, at least for a bit, in August.

One of the keywords for Leo is ‘Heart’. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and it’s helpful to think about the good and bad qualities of our brightest star to harvest the good in this sign. The Sun is a source of energy and some would say even spiritual Light. In describing Leo, yes, the word heart refers to the heart in your bodies, but it also expands to the other meanings of the word.

Loyalty, Honor, Bravery and Intention are all expressions of heart. So are your Enthusiasm and Creative Self Expression. Creativity is one of your divine gifts as a human, up there with speech and the ability to write. And this is why I think there is excitement in the air – the new King or Queen to be born is the child of your creative essence.

What will you give birth to in this fertile season? A book, a plan, an adventure filled with awesome experiences – you also have the Divine gift of being able to influence what kind of a day you’ll – each and every day – by choosing how you will think and act. This one act sets a powerful and positive tone over all of your life.

Things happen, lessons come and go, and sometimes life doesn’t go as anticipated, but always remember your Leo royal self and choose a path with HEART.

With love and gratitude

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the Stars

Full Moon Eclipse and Your Pyramid of Power

Full Moon Eclipse and Your Pyramid of Power

The lunar eclipse of July 16th fits like a hand in glove with the next one which will be on January 10 of 2020. Both lunar eclipses activate Saturn and Pluto; so, it’s important to understand what those two planets really are there to teach.

Full Moon Eclipse and Your Pyramid of Power

The lunar eclipse

The lunar eclipse of July 16th fits like a hand in glove with the next one which will be on January 10 of 2020. Both lunar eclipses activate Saturn and Pluto; so, it’s important to understand what those two planets really are there to teach.

Saturn and Pluto have been dancing

Saturn and Pluto have been dancing together since Saturn entered Capricorn in December of 2017. Day by day and month by month, Saturn has been inching closer to Pluto, and on January 12, 2020 they meet through a dynamic conjunction – almost exactly at the degree of tomorrow’s eclipse of 24 Capricorn.

You can think of this as a planetary brick wall – OR – you can look at it as you calling to build your pyramid of power.

One quick way to understand planets is by thinking about the keywords, and then combining them. Combine the keywords on the back of my oracle cards and see what you come up with.

Here are a few examples:

Teacher of Soul Growth; Death and Rebirth of Authority; Structure of Power.

The last one, Structure of Power talks about building your own personal pyramid for strength and stability.Saturn,Pluto

Saturn can function like the brick wall or a stepping stone. Pluto delivers darkness, or you can choose Soul Growth. Both planets have messages around Authority and Control. The question becomes – who holds the power – you, or an undefined ‘other’.

True power requires consistency, consciousness, and caring. Charisma helps, too. 

Tomorrow’s full moon lunar eclipse is a wake-up call to the planetary events coming in January. It’s a calling to begin now by defining and refining your true power.

With love and gratitude

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the Stars

Saturn opposing the Sun – Celestial Hump day

Every year the Sun, the earth and Saturn have a special rendezvous. This meeting is not to be taken lightly; It’s like a celestial G-7 summit and it signals a time when important decisions are made and commitments are solidified.

Today, July 9th is that special day of the Sun/Saturn opposition. And you, and the planet earth stand in between Saturn and the Sun. Saturn will be visible all night, from dusk till dawn of July 10th.  And what it means is that Saturn has extra power and influence now.

Traditional astrology speaks about loss as a signature Saturn event, but every planet also has gifts. You may be feeling ‘old’, or ‘unappreciated’ now. Someone may even be busting your chops by not giving in to what you feel are your legitimate requests. These are all typical events that come with an opposition. Like two sumo wrestlers fighting to get the upper hand, the opposition often delivers a worthy opponent. 

Know Your Best Place to Live anywhere in the world: Destiny Reading

Saturn is also retrograde now, which means that he’s digging up the past to rectify the present. Any problems you have now are to be taken seriously because the Sun/Saturn opposition gives you an awareness of your own dysfunctional patterns, and then you can consciously correct them. 

But don’t forget about the positive qualities – his strengths. The first gift of Saturn is ‘KARMA’ – what goes around comes around. With Saturn and the North Node now conjunct, you’ll continue to see justice served.

The positive gifts of Saturn are: Financial Stability; Empowerment; Accountability; Longevity; and Wisdom.

How has Saturn played out in your life? Want to find out more? Schedule your DESTINY READING for answers on how to establish financial stability by applying your personal gifts from Saturn.

Have you ever seen Saturn? It's awesome! Because Saturn is closer to the earth than usual this is a great time for viewing. The rings of Saturn are mesmerizing. Saturn shines cold, hard, and bright, just like it's interpretation in astrology. If you have a chance to see through a telescope – do it. Just getting a good look and standing in the Light of Saturn brings you clarity and gives you strength!

Mercury Retrograde July 7 – 31

The secret to success now lies in the ancient wisdom of: ‘Know Thyself'. This Mercury retrograde cycle reverse engineers the psychological journey from Leo to Cancer. Think of it as going from the Sun to the Moon.

The land of the Sun (Leo) is bright and colored in shades of creative self-expression. Confidence and self-assurance live in the kingdom of Leo. But the lion now returns home – to the mysterious land of the Moon. Mercury re-engaging Cancer is an exercise in authenticity.

Hunger and longing are found in the land of the Moon. Mercury in Cancer asks: What do you really want? Why do you want it? These are essential questions that must be answered in the protective homeland of Cancer.

Yes, there will be frustrations when Mercury goes rogue; he's not really being bad – just playing games with your life. Remember the lesson of Know Thyself and enjoy the journey.
