New Moon in Leo — Waking up to our authentic selves

The new Moon is conjunct the Sun and Mars at the beginning degrees of Leo.  These three planets square Uranus in Aries challenging us to really be our authentic self.  The Moon is our instinctual nature, our habits, patterns, emotional life, our past and the Sun is our soul, our authentic self.  Our past and future collide in a union of past and future our personality and soul merge in the sign of individualistic and self-expressed Leo.  The Sun rules Leo and Cancer rules the Moon.  When they come together in new Moon fashion, there is a growth spurt; a conscious evolution waiting to take place.  Leo is a fixed sign and prefers to do it their own way and mainly because they can.  The action-oriented energy of Cancer has consolidated its energy when it lands in Leo so it knows how to love, to create, to express (if Leo could get out of its own way and realize that it takes two to tango, not just one.  That’s right.  It’s not all about you, is it?)

The added energy of Mars gives us courage, drive, energy, bravery to be fearless and push what lies Dormant out into the light of day.  Mars can be a warrior pushing the energy forward and can become impatient, irritated, heated when life is moving too slowly.  If we channel the energy of Mars from its higher perspective, the action we take this new Moon, will be the courage to express our authentic selves, and to love ourselves and others more.  The universal transit is begging us to choose love as we venture out into the world.  We may find that doing so is easy and we can surprise ourselves with the lessons we have learned about ourselves over the last month.

Uranus square this stellium in Leo can shake us up a bit – some unexpected surprise can create some friction on our ride through conscious growth and personal evolution.  Uranus is making a grand trine with Mercury in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius.  Our thoughts and ideas are more innovative and unusual, perhaps surprising insights that can be responsibly manifested in our lives.

Chiron is making a challenging aspect to the new Moon asking us if we want to continue to do what makes us unhappy and in pain or if we are going to take those first bold steps into empowered happiness.  What we focus on becomes a practice and grows stronger with each moment.  We can focus on the pain and let that experience of pain be the life we live or we can focus on what makes us happy and let more light and joy into our hearts.

What bold new expression do you wish to manifest over the next month?  Do you have the courage to step into a new you?  Will you focus on all the pain in your life or all the joy?  Take your life and live it.  It’s the only one you got this go around.

Are you feeling stuck? — READ THIS

I’m not ready yet, I’m not ready yet, I’m not ready yet – has this been your mantra?  No, I can’t quite take a chance, move forward, do something different – walk across the tightrope with eyes closed and hope for the best — don’t do that to yourself!

If you aren’t ready to move forward – then don’t take on projects or tasks that you aren’t fully equipped to handle.  Why?  Because that is where you are at and there is everything right with being exactly where you are at.

Do not fake it till you make it no matter how often people tell you it has given them more confidence to pursue and push through seeming obstacles (your own lack of readiness?).  Fake it til you make it is really bad advice.  It implies that you should not be authentic and it implies that you should not embrace the present moment.  It means to embrace a feeling that is not you right now.

In the law of attraction they say to embody how you would feel, think and act if you had whatever it is you are wanting to create or attract.  To do this, you have to (yes, I just said ‘have to’ ugh) embrace or shall we say, get down and dirty, with what you feel (and think) right now.  Once you do that and peel that thorny thorn out – you are a bit closer to your light of authentic being.  Trust me – it works.  However, you have to want to do it.  It’s not a walk in the park — that comes after you do the work!

You will know if you are holding yourself back out of fear or if you truly don’t have it all together right now to make a move.  That is okay.

The energy of Mars wants to take action – not all Mars placements are adept at taking action in the way Mars intends – and that is the flip side of Mars – impulsive—so if you take impulsive action you will see how the result lands (Saturn) and the lesson (Jupiter) you take from that action.

For example, if your Mars is in an air sign – you probably have said this mantra ‘I’m not ready yet’ many times especially if Mars is in Libra – you hold back.  Mars in an air sign is about taking action on ideas – so our ideas come from a mental place and our action comes from behavior – so it takes time before an idea becomes manifested within the body to take action – so it’s okay to wait.  It is okay.

Now, we want to wait before we take action because we need to visualize what we want.  We aren’t aimlessly waiting for something outside of us to tell us what we want — we decide all on our very own!  How cool!

We need to dream a little bit about what we want to create for ourselves.  It is that ‘law of attraction’ puzzle piece that assists us in manifesting what would truly nurture our soul’s purpose.

Visualize responsibly– sounds boring, eh?

When I say visualize responsibly what I mean is visualize consciously.  I’ll give you an example of visualizing unconsciously –  an acquaintance of mine really wanted to make a million dollars a year.  For him, this would be the pinnacle of success that would draw to him a hot chick and a mansion with a white picket fence.  He actively and impulsively took action on these dreams – guess what?  His idea to make a million dollars was based on a design he created (faulty because he had no clue what he was really designing) – he wanted a million dollars and he constantly received mail from reader’s digest and publisher’s clearing house to enter a contest to win a million dollars — a few people supported him in his design but refused to invest — so after a few years he was exhausted and bitter because he had not made over $25,000 in a year.  The hot chick who believed in his dreams had a personality disorder and ruined his life.

Where it is you dream and visualize what you want would be an interaction with Neptune and the Sun – Neptune can take you on a wild adventure through foggy swamp lands and into confusion or it take you on a spiritual journey into the unknown in which you gain your spiritual wings.

So, please – visualize responsibly, consciously and in specific detail.  Make it big, make it Juicy

The best place to visualize what you want is by being fully present.  You create what you want or don’t want in this moment – not in the past or in the future – right here, right now.   In this moment take a listen to your thoughts – what is going through your mind right now?  That will be your clue about what you are creating – and if you don’t like what you are attracting to you – then identifying your thoughts will be really helpful to you.  You will start to see a pattern if you watch long enough.

The more awareness you bring to these thoughts, the easier it will be to consciously create – you can totally reframe any thought that comes through your mind – you can let go of any core belief that causes you to make unhelpful choices.

This life is up to you – make it a good one.

Let’s Talk – Gemini Full Moon

Gemini Full Moon at 7:05 PM EST – 4:05PM PST

In this age, which believes that there is a shortcut to everyone, the greatest lesson to be learned is that the most difficult way is, in the long run, the easiest.  Henry Miller

For some people, glossing over the truth is the easiest way to avoid potential conflict and have other people approve of us.  In some instances, avoiding communication altogether is a way to escape conflict that ‘might’ arise out of telling our truth.

Gemini is not known for emotional depth; it’s known for facts and information and communicating that information to others.  Gemini is known for its witty and clever quality – not necessarily concerned with the truth (that’s Sagitarrius’ domain).  This Full Moon in Gemini is not one of those moons.

The Full Moon illuminates Gemini so it brings to light information or facts that we previously weren’t aware of, perhaps even hidden from us.   The Full Moon is opposing Saturn in Sagittarius so there are some serious conversations we must have.

Let’s talk.

These two words, for some reason, sum up a lot of fear. We can’t have fun all the time.   Sometimes, we have to have those very difficult conversations with people about where we are coming from.  Conversations we don’t want to have because we are afraid of what others will think, afraid someone will leave us, afraid we will lose our job – afraid we will look like a weirdo – this is the time to put on your big girl pants.

In the Eastern time zone, the moon is moving through the 12th house of endings and karma – so we see here the culmination of our actions.  When we understand how our actions resulted in our circumstances, we can then let go, move on, transform our lives.

This is going to be easy to deal with because we have the full moon making a grand trine in air signs – so lots of talk (not the Mystical kind, yet).  By the next new Moon we know what it is we want to do differently.

Moon trine Jupiter in Libra and Mars in Aquarius – so these sobering talks we have will be about harmony, peace, social justice – and Uranus in Aries will add an unexpected spark to the mix as it sextiles the moon and trines the sun and Saturn – I think some really good things will come out of what we talk about.

You’ll be glad you did.

Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn is going to affect this Full Moon – stay tuned for more —

Change: Will it be a Revolution or the same ole thing?

Moon is in Aries toward the last 6 degrees – the last day or two I have been feeling an amazing surge of fire energy – this springtime energy to make things happen.  I can see the buds sprouting and excited for the rest of the garden to fully bloom.  Where are these Aries Flames taking us?

We are two days away from a full Moon in Taurus – some earth to ground us in the material world!  Mars has just moved into Aquarius, Venus into Capricorn (more reserved values) and Mercury into Sagittarius (are we going to bullshit ourselves and allow others to bullshit us?  Or will we only accept the truth and be truthful in return?).  My, oh, my!  What adventures will we be going on?

Aquarius is all about community — and from a Human Design perspective — we have the Channel of Community highlighted.  We also have the Channel of Structuring — possible new insights about community (on a big and small scale).   We’ve had this old way that we’ve come to be familiar with (south node gate 37) and there is a new way on the horizon (north node gate 40).  Gate 40 is the tribe and it is all about support.  We very much feel alone and unsupported – many of us do this past week and this feeling is growing.  And those of us who feel unsupported and alone  are wanting to stand together and unite – yet, we cannot unite in the same fashion in which we have done in the past (like the blind leading the blind – or even worse, the image of the cruel sheep herder leading sleeping sheep over a cliff to their deaths) – we must find a new way to continue to become more independent from the past so we can grow!

What we are seeing are people rejecting Trump (the seemingly negative force) so that we can become more liberated!  Is rejecting the negative the only way toward liberation?  Or do we embrace the negative in order to liberate?

Certainly, a revolution is rising on the horizon – can you smell it?

What is the foundation that we would need to establish such liberation/revolution within our community and in our smaller communities (a ‘Brexit’ where some states secede from the rest of the US to form its own leadership? or will the electors actually vote for Clinton instead of Trump?  It may not be legally possible — although one never knows what would happen if we tried something different for once)

We could take some learning lessons from the ‘Brexit’ and expand our awareness into the depths we need to create to build the kind of nation we really want that will support us in the direction we want to go toward – we want a leader who will lead us where we want to go.

On a personal scale, we want to know how to access our own authority so we can know the right way to go. What is your personal philosophy and how does that align with the actions you take, the job you work, the people you spend time with?

Now that Mars has moved into Aquarius there is this drive to satisfy our humanitarian concerns.  We don’t want our humanitarian rights to be overlooked – we have certain rights being citizens of the US – and those rights could very well be taken away before we even knew what happened.  Where will all this take us?

We will have to wait and see what transpires over the next two weeks
