Star Cast for January 14

Hello and Welcome to my weekly Star Cast, where I bring you the update on what’s happening in the world of astrology – and how you can apply the wisdom to enrich your life here on earth.

My key word for this week is:
Speak Your Truth
This week begins with a favorable sextile between Mercury and Neptune.The sextile is an aspect of opportunity meaning that  there are lots of good things available to you today, but you have to reach out and make them come to you. Carpe Diem.

Keep busy today and don’t lose heart because also today, the moon conjuncts Uranus just before 11 AM Eastern time. Moon conjunct Uranus is an energizer bunny aspect –if you have a lot to get done today, you may well have to work into the evening hours, but the good news is that you’ll get much accomplished, and in fact, this aspect between the moon and Uranus really favors creativity.

So, it’s a good Monday, although it may be a long one.

Just after the Moon joins Uranus, it enters Taurus where it stays until Wednesday. A Taurus moon favors productivity and helps to insure that your work will be long lasting. Be sure to take time out and smell the flowers because beauty is one of the true gifts of Taurus.

The best day this week is Friday, January 18th. First, is a lovely Venus trine Mars – this is a famous lovers aspect, so, if you have someone special with whom you want to ignite a spark – Friday is that day to do it.

Venus represents the feminine and Mars is about masculine, so when these two meet in a favorable trine – romance is kindled. Plus, both are in fire signs, Venus in Sagittarius and Mars in Aries – wow – this is a lovely combination.

Plus, on Friday Mercury conjuncts Pluto – what this means is that not only do you have the light heartedness of Mars trine Venus, but you also add some deep communication. Pluto makes you honest, and Mercury helps you speak in a clear but also light hearted way.

Remember, Uranus is now direct and enters Taurus on March 5th where he stays until 2026. You’ll hear many things about Uranus in Taurus, but know that long standing empires were built with this combination, and generally this is a favorable placement for Uranus.

Uranus retrograde was a time when old patterns were broken apart. Now, with Uranus in direct motion, it’s time to focus on your holistic and complete heath, body, mind, and soul.

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the stars!

Taking Action and Finding Clarity in the Lunar Shift

Last week's Scorpio New Moon signals a time to make a commitment.

My key phrase for this week is: Commitment

This week activates the promise of last week’s November 7th Scorpio new moon. Moving into the first quarter moon, you are being asked to take action.

In the 28 day lunation cycle, which is the time it takes to go from one new moon to the next, the first quarter moon urges you to take action; and to do that, you must make a commitment.

Many times people feel that they must make the ‘right’ decision, but consider that sometimes it’s necessary to just make a decision and see it through.

This may be the case now. If you must take action, this week opens a portal that allows you to do your duty. You must be firm though. That's because two major celestial events happened on Friday, November 16th: Venus stationed direct and Mercury went retrograde.

Granted, this can cause confusion and even more delay. That’s why, if you must take action this week, do it ASAP. By Saturday, you may be feeling confused again.

Finding Quiet Clarity

Confusion that prevents you from committing will be an issue, and it’s vitally important that you find your way to clarity. There are many techniques to quiet your mind and then connect with the wisdom of your body.

Jupiter is now in Sagittarius, the sign where he is extra powerful. Much larger than the earth, Jupiter has 63 moons! Wouldn’t it be fun to go there and see so many moons in the sky?  You can think of Jupiter as a great, big old gas giant with lots of minions, as expressed by the Moons, to do his bidding.

Learning to ask for and accept help will be one of our lessons here on earth as Jupiter moves through Sagittarius until December of 2019. Moons are helpers, people who have come to serve and help you shine your Light.

There are many stressors in all parts of life now, but especially in a time of trauma, it’s important to return to your core values. What do you really believe? Do you see the cup as half full, or half empty? Who do you want to be? What do you want to accomplish?

Think about these questions this week, as you focus on commitment.

The stars will guide your way.

Scorpio New Moon: Coming Back to Your Body

new moon scorpio
This Scorpio New Moon is a time to come back to your body.

As we approach the Scorpio New Moon my key phrase for this week is: Welcome Home

Today, November 6,  is a pivotal day for the world, and tomorrow, November 7th, is a vital day in astrology. On Wednesday, the Sun and Moon join forces in the exact middle at 15 degrees of Scorpio.

This degree of Scorpio holds a special place in the history of sky watching. The 15th degree of Scorpio is known as the Gate of the Avatar. Taken from an ancient Hindu term related to the word ‘descent’, an Avatar is an enlightened Teacher who enters, or descends to the earth plane. The Avatar is an embodiment of a prime, creative Universal force.

Entering the vortex

And the Avatar Gate is a vortex, a point of entry where enlightened service manifests. 

These days we all are waking up to fulfill our unique divine purpose. The Avatar Gate serves not only spiritual Masters. It is a manifestation point for YOU and your spiritual work and mission.  

In short, the Scorpio new moon signals that it’s time to inhabit your body in the most full and creative way possible. It’s time to come home and do your work in the world.

The Book of Scorpio

Scorpio gives birth to irrevocable change and teaches us that:

  • Forces can change but not destroy you
  • Negativity is a self-destructive path
  • The desire to share overcomes the fear of loss
  • Passion is a driving emotion
  • Intuition is a form of body wisdom

And, the most important lesson of all: 

LOVE is more powerful than HATE

We have been stressed and under pressure all year. Just like when a baby is born, their cries can persist until the point you feel you cannot go on. In other words, you may feel absolute discomfort and at the same time a promise of fulfillment. What is coming will be a better version of what is left behind.

So, this week’s powerful new moon is one that speaks to rebirth and just like a little baby we can see the world with bright and fresh eyes.

Welcome Home, child.

Libra New Moon

Goddess Maat moves you from chaos to certainty

My key phrase for this week is: Peace of Mind

Today, October 8th ushers in the Libra New Moon. Libra is the sign of relationships, but it's also the sign of justice.

The glyph or symbol for Libra is a set of scales. Connected through ancient teachings to the Goddess Maat, the scales of Libra are there to weigh the burdens of your heart.

Ancient Egyptians taught us that Goddess Maat brought order from chaos at the moment of creation. She regulates the stars and the seasons, and that she calibrates your actions.

As you tune into this Libra new moon energy this week, remember the goddess Maat and consider that it’s time release your mental burdens.

The challenge of Libra is to make a solid commitment – no halfway steps. So, you must really, really let go of resentment and anger. And, take a look at the role that doubt plays in your life.

Doubt implies the dread of uncertainty, and being of two minds. Being unable to make a decision is also symbolized by the scales of Libra. Should I stay or should I go? Which is the best way forward?

The answer is: You must take action and overcome the fear of making mistakes. Mistakes are one way that we all grow, and the paralysis of two minds is a veil over the Light of God.

Spiritual truth is beyond human logic, and you must simply jump in and run a good race. Your mind can get to the starting gate, but you cannot allow your thoughts to keep you spinning in circles, frozen in time and space.

There are many layers and levels of mind. To function in the world, we must connect with logic, which is a layer of the conscious mind. But you also have a subconscious mind which rules habits and life functions that keep you safe.

Unfortunately, the subconscious mind can also keep you stuck.

And, you also have a Higher Mind, a part of yourself that connects to wisdom. Through meditation and/or calming your logical mind, you can always connect with your Higher Mind for guidance to navigate any situation.

Libra is an air sign, and it corresponds to your mental processes. In this season of Libra, learn to understand your mind. Practice positive thinking, create beneficial habits, and release you mental burdens.

Wishing you joy and peace for this Libra new moon.
