New Moon in Leo — July 23rd 2017

There is so much going on in the Heavens during this weekend, from Mars entering Leo on the 20th, the Sun entering Leo on the 22nd and the New Moon cresting in Leo on the 23rd — we may find this time -span an exciting and busy one. Our New Moon in Leo crests on the 23rd, at 4:46 AM EST (add one hour for DST).

For those lucky individuals, whose birthdays coincide or are near to the New Moon, they will be starting a new lunar cycle, enhancing their instincts, emotions and empathy towards others. They may also find that they are more spiritually aware and seeking answers about their own pathway during this lifetime and they are curious about the ancient mysteries of our being and existence.

The New Moon in Leo is especially warm and generous — there isn’t anything a Leo wouldn’t do for their loved ones — loving profoundly and totally engaged in living life to the full, our Leo brethren are a joy to behold. Perhaps a little over-the-top when lavishing gifts upon their loved ones, they often feel they aren’t doing enough for their nearest and dearest. Of course, they may expect the same in return, but always appreciate anything thoughtful done for them in any way. Our Leos are bigger than life, have a zest for living that makes every experience seem awesome, still — they understand the fragility of this lifetime. If there is a Leo in your life, you are blessed with an adoring and protective family member or friend. Always having your back, once befriended you are theirs for life!

Curious and inquiring, our Leos want to know about people, their lives, and their feelings — tapping into Neptune in Pisces can help us understand our differences, and how we can better find common ground in order to get along in this fractious world. Find where Pisces lives in your chart and the House position will give you a hint about how you can go about fine-tuning your acceptance and approval of all human beings. Venus in Gemini is giving us an upbeat and frivolous look at ourselves this month, perhaps we will lighten up on our more negative ideas about what and who people may be, and concentrate on the diversity and yet amazing similarities we share as humans. We all want to live our lives in peace, be able to raise our offspring without fear, have a safe place to live throughout our lives, and be able to find acceptance for ourselves, our beliefs, and our lifestyles within our communities, neighborhoods, and indeed OUR world! A little compassion, acceptance, understanding and consideration goes a long way in assuring that we live in a world that offers peace and harmony for all.

I am always excited by the Leo New Moon — following the Cancer Moon (all about family), and followed by the Virgo Moon (very staid and proper) — our Leo New Moon (think royalty, extravagant, overgenerous) gives us the chance to thing BIG — it allows us to color outside of the box, and helps us find our most whimsical and fantastic ideas of what we really want. Let your imaginations soar, write down a few of your most idealistic, ridiculous, and outrageous ideas — Leo brings good things and you may find a magical surprise!

Our Leo New Moon on the 23rd, crests at 4:46 AM EST (add one hour for DST) — so all day will be auspicious for you to write out your affirmations, dreams, wishes and desires. Creative, intense, enthusiastic, and a true romantic — our Leo New Moon can and will help you to get your truths into the ether, where they can manifest in your own reality! Try to be inspired, innovative and imaginative when writing out your list — there is nothing to lose by letting the Universe know your desires. Magic can and will happen when you have faith and believe in your ability to help yourself. You are the arbiter of your life — give yourself this chance to change things for the better. Only you know your truest dreams — only you can put out your deepest affirmations into the Cosmos — believe that you deserve to be happy, to be content, and to be at one with your spirit, soul and the Divine mystery that is life!

Peace

New Moon in Taurus — April 26th 2017

Our New Moon crests in Taurus this month on the 26th at 6 degrees of the sign at 7:16 AM EST (add one hour for DST). This month has been plagued by a Rx Mercury (still in place until May 3rd),  however, Venus  did go direct mid-month giving us a more positive outlook on our relationships, and perhaps lightened our hearts with renewed hope. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto remain in Rx mode through next month, all presenting us with challenges and less than ideal input from their lofty realms. Jupiter Rx in Libra can unbalance the status-quo, that will make our decision making a bit more difficult — be sure to have all the facts in deciding any major lifestyle decisions. Saturn Rx in Sagittarius has tweaked us by making us review our choices for our future and bringing some serious evaluations about where we want to be in the next 5, 10, or 15 years.  Pluto Rx in Capricorn is a conundrum — not overly happy in Saturn’s natural realm, we find we must be more practical and use more common sense in our everyday lives. Still, Pluto has more sway over worldly woes and actions — perhaps wiser minds will take charge and make this world a bit safer and kinder for all, other options will have consequences.

The Taurus New Moon gives all of us the chance to influence our lives and the lives of our loved ones, but also — if enough folks could think positive thoughts about our fragile world, perhaps it would offset the imbalance we are experiencing and bring about constructive and encouraging changes for the better. Indeed — this is the only world we have — and it behooves us to treat it and all of its inhabitants well, with respect and love.

Now to the changes we can help to make in our own lives — the Taurus New Moon is good for so many reasons — ruled by Venus, it encompasses beauty in every form, loving kindness, acceptance and admiration for everyone, on a practical note — Taurus has reign over money and real-estate, business and powerful mentors. Those who are born near this New Moon on the 26th will begin a new lunar cycle enabling them to move forward with those plans that are closest to their hearts. All of us can benefit when we tune into the rhythm of the Galaxy, feel the impulses that emanate from the deepest abysses of space and time. These cadences have been streaming throughout our sphere since creation, bringing us the evidence of a greater power, a Universal consciousness of spiritual connection, that joins all of us in our pathway in this lifetime.  Learn to use these karmic gifts of Providence to enable you on your individual journey with those for whom you love and care.

We all deserve to be loved and to find happiness during our lifetime here on Earth — with the help of the ebb and flow of our Galaxy we can find a way to put our hopes and dreams forth into the ether — where they can take root and become manifest in our own lives. Each New Moon has its own profile that will make your wishes more powerful — in Taurus we can wish for financial stability, wealth, and for a loving and caring family, we can release our anger and stubbornness with the stroke of a pen just by writing out our hopes, wishes and affirmations. Let your imagination soar to new heights and think outside the box to stimulate a new wave of desires that haven’t been requested heretofore.

With the positive aspects of Taurus, you can bring more positive ways of moving forward — Taurus has the ability to move to a goal step-by-step, never looking back and keeping your heart positive and goal-oriented. Use this power to move yourself into a fresh way of seeing your pathway — Taurus can also keep you on your path — steady and committed, they are unwavering in their knack for getting things done.

As always — try to find a quiet time to sit and think about what would improve your life right now — write as many affirmations or wishes as you like — and breathe into each word a sense of accomplishment and finality. Pretend for a moment that your wish has already been answered — see yourself with all of your wishes completed in a positive manner. You can write out your affirmations all day after the New Moon crests on the 26th at 7:16 AM EST (add one hour for DST) for the most potent times of New Moon energy. However, the power of the New Moon can last for the next 48 hours.

Blend with the harmony of the Universe in order to fulfill your most ardent dreams — feel the flow of the Life Force we enjoy here on Earth. Immerse yourself into the dynamic atmosphere that surrounds us every day — and refresh every atom of your body with a spiritual and transcendent renewal. There is magic in the air we breathe, and the hope and wonder of our mere existence as we evolve ever higher on our human journey.

Peace

February’s Astrological Activity — 2017

February will be an active month with a Lunar Eclipse on the 10th in the sign Leo at 22 degrees at 7:33 PM EST– this dramatic sign will bring us some over-the-top activity that will keep us on edge for a while, yet after this phase of the Moon has passed we will be able to take a deep breath and realize it wasn’t that onerous and perhaps some clarity came through to help solve an ongoing issue. The Solar Eclipse is on the 26th in the sign Pisces  at 8 degrees at 9:58 AM EST — conjunct Neptune at 11 degrees, will spur our  imaginations and we will find ourselves seeking more creativity and spirituality in order to solve the issues we are facing now, the downside might be that a dream we’ve been holding on to might be shown to be totally impractical. However, the New Moon also fires up Mars-Uranus-Jupiter energies for the better. Use the energies of both these magnificent aspects to enhance the meaning of your life. If your birthday is near either of these dates you will be starting a new Lunar or Solar cycle — this revitalization will help you find answers to old issues and will bring you new opportunities. There are many sides to Eclipses, and what will manifest in your chart will depend on which Zodiac House position it will be cresting within, also whether or not it will be connecting to other Planets in your chart.

It will be advantageous through February 3rd to get your message across — on the 3rd, Venus enters Aries bringing a new energy into the mix. On the 6th Jupiter in Libra will turn Retrograde in the early hours of the day until turning direct on June 9th, making us think carefully about what it is we want to share. Don’t be too trusting or open with new acquaintances — bide your time in getting to know them better. We can however begin to realize that we are more able to develop more of our own personality, we will begin to know our own belief system better in order to create our own moral compass. It is usually better to make any big decisions the week after a Lunar Eclipse (February 10th in Leo) as you may find new information that will alter your ideas. The Solar Eclipse degree of 22 Pisces, on the 26th will be energized for 9 to 12 months — on the 28th Mars triggers the degree of the Eclipse, so be careful driving, in any sport, and put off surgery if you can until a later date.

February to March will witness a stellium (a cluster of Planets in both Pisces and Aries) — this area of your chart will be the focus of much activity. Having the first and last signs of the Zodiac in such close connection brings much activity to those Zodiac Houses in which they appear! Also, if you have a Planet or Planets in those Houses there will be more intense ongoings. These stelliums will impact us in different ways — Aries is all about energy, starting projects, and moving quickly (sometimes without proper planning). Pisces is more laid-back — enhancing our spiritual side — making us dig deep into our psyches in order to clarify our goals. Together there will be a push/pull of activity that may make life a bit intense — the answer to using these differing powerhouses effectively is to breathe — look at any opportunity, situation, goal — and carefully judge your next move — no knee-jerk decisions until all the facts have been explored. Use your intuition and inner spirit to find those deepest desires you wish to come to fruition — and try to blend the divine with the mundane. In other words — use the spiritual and the pragmatic sides of your persona in order to allow the Universe to bestow it’s magic upon you with the down-home practicality and common-sense with which you were born. Also impacted will be those Zodiac Houses that hold Virgo and Libra (the opposite side of the chart) — any Houses with Planets will be opposite the Aries/Pisces stellium! Be sure to look at your chart to see if you have a Planet that will come into opposition with the stellium as there will be an effect for some time. Knowing what your chart shows can help you prepare for any opportunity or happenstance that comes along.

Mars in Aries will meet up with Uranus near the end of the month creating a heady amount of energy being expelled into the ether, along with the Uranus/Saturn trine we should be able to use this blast of power to revitalize our objectives and realize that there are wonderful opportunities if we look for them. Be aware of the inspiring messages you get from those around you and be ready to take advantage of any positive activity that will spur you on your way to achieving your highest goals. You can use the inventive mind-set of Mercury after it enters Aquarius on the 7th to enhance your creative thinking and writing.  You will be able to think outside-the-box in order to come up with new and original ideas that will bring a welcome ability to further your success.

On the 9th the Sun in good aspect to Uranus in the early evening may bring an interesting dinner companion, conversation will be stimulating and full of vitality! Enjoy this enchanting time span and you may be making a new best friend. The morning of the 11th finds the Sun in excellent aspect to Jupiter, this could be just the lucky break you’ve wanted. Use your intuition in order to fulfill a long dreamed of goal. Around lunch time on the 16th you seem to have the answers that everyone wants — your mind is sharp and you can express yourself with ease. The Sun enters Pisces on the 18th bringing our compassionate and creative side to the fore and allowing us to share our talents with others of like mind. This theme continues into the 21st when you feel optimistic and may lunch with a friend who has some interesting ideas for you to follow. Mercury enters Pisces on the 25th enhancing our dreams and bringing us unusual and perhaps spiritual messages from otherworldly realms. It enhances the New Moon in Pisces on the 26th with poetic thoughts and perhaps communication from a friend we haven’t heard from in some time. During the morning rush hours of the 27th Mars in conflict with Jupiter might make for a long commute — stay calm — breathe and know you will be a winner! A Moon/Venus/Neptune connection ends our month with good feelings and the intuitive imagination to know you are on the right pathway.

March should prove to be another interesting month with the Aries/Pisces stellium  still in play — as Confucius said “May you live in interesting times” — it seems to me that we are indeed!

Peace
