Full Moon Revelation

FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – A Revelation OF EVENTS THAT LEAD US TO TRUTH AND WELL-BEING.

Let’s take a look at June 9th full Moon in Sagittarius and what it has in store for you.

The full moon’s light illuminates the night sky and metaphorically highlights a realization, Revelation or a goal that has come to fruition yet not fully complete.  The light of a full moon is like a beacon that guides us toward the finish line.

The full Moon is always opposite the Sun.  This opposition is a call toward balance in the areas these luminaries fall in your chart.  So, if the full Moon is located in the 8th house other people’s resources are highlighted.  This full Moon is also asking you how your personal resources (Sun in the 2nd house) are being used and balanced with other people’s resources.

The full Moon in Sagittarius is about emotional truth.  It’s about adding more focused and dynamic flexibility in how we express our emotional truth.

The full Moon is conjunct Saturn so this is an emotionally sobering aspect – where in our lives did we take risks that failed because we acted first before we found out the information?  We do this all the time when we buy a car, a home, sign-up for a student loan, (vote for a President)– and if we are pressured through the hard sell, we may succumb to signing on the dotted line before we know all the facts.  This is the balancing act we have with Sun in Gemini – exploring knowledge through examination of facts and ask pertinent questions about what we believe or what other people might be telling you.

When I look at the planets configuration, they are providing flexibility and action to support our truth.  We have Jupiter in Libra turning direct so we, hopefully, have been learning to expand our ideas of relationships and valuing differing ideas from our own without too much judgment.  Jupiter is making a harmonious aspect to this full Moon.  Jupiter rules Sagittarius so we could tend to emotionally exaggerate our stories to really drive home the point of our beliefs, our truths to convince others to believe us as well.

Mars has moved into Cancer and I call this the family warrior.  Mars the warrior and Cancer, home, family, personal security (and is ruler of the Moon) is asking us to set personal boundaries that cause us to feel safe, that protects our family.  We can also be rather ‘crabby’ here is as well when our needs are not met.

Venus is in Taurus, it’s natural home.  Sensual, earthy, artistic.  This is a self-care message and station identification break: get a massage or massage your loved one.  Spend time in nature, paint, sing, take a bath in essential oils – love yourself deeply.

So, the truth has been revealed or is continuing to reveal itself.  Are we going to fess up and start from scratch?  Or are we going to tell BS stories to keep our lies intact?

Tell the truth.  Question authority.  Do the research.  Examine the research. Set your boundaries in supportive, loving and gentle ways that respect you and others.

Above all, have fun and love yourself even more than ever.

Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn/Sagittarius, Dec 19, 2016

Be in this world but not of it.  Perfect mantra for us in regard to the astrological sky – and for us co-dependents!

During a Mercury retrograde – mishaps in communications are likely.  Delays are likely with travel and communication devices.  Do not fear!

This is a time to sharpen up our communication skills.  A time to edit it out what doesn’t work with the story we want to live.  This will play out through the theme of Capricorn/Sagittarius and the houses these signs are in your chart.

Mercury is asking us to reflect and listen more – in many instances, when we communicate with others we place our own spin to what we hear – .  We don’t always say what we think.  We don’t always say what we mean.  We don’t listen to others because we are only listening to what we want to say next in response.  We are talking at one another but not with one another.

So, going within, listening, reflecting – is a good thing – on any day of the week. Going within assists you in promoting change from within outward.

Then, there is the force of your exterior world to change to match your desires.  If we look at the recent events in Aleppo, we see how physical force caused destruction of the structures of the city and the emotional quality of its inhabitants.  This force was executed by a faction of people who desired to snuff out the rebel forces.  Atrocities took place that are supposed to be prevented under international law – and destroyed a historical city and brought so much suffering to its citizens.

So, can you feel it?  Can you feel the tension in the air?  Something must burst to reset itself.  We can look at the astrological position to talk about this –  Mars will conjunct Neptune and the South Node in Pisces, Uranus in Aries opposite Jupiter in Libra, Pluto conjunct the Sun in Capricorn all on New Year’s Day – and I think within the week between Christmas and New Year’s there will be sparks of the angry kind exploding – wanting to explode in our personal lives and in the world at large.

Mars in Pisces conjunct the South Node means we are reverting to actions that are based on old conditioning – and Neptune in the mix has this covert energy about it – so we won’t really know what has hit us – and it is going to make a quincunx to Jupiter (ruler of Pisces) opposite Uranus – so whatever unexpectedly disrupts our fun will bring attention to coming together as a community.   Kind of like the 9-11 kind.  For those who don’t want to make conscious change – the hard shit happens to open our eyes.

The good thing is this trine with Saturn and Uranus.  What comes as a surprise and catches us off guard is something we will be ready to deal with.

Mercury retrograde will pass over the area we just experienced over the last three weeks so we re-experience that same theme.  When it goes direct, it will pass over that area again.  We get to edit and re-edit, revisit and redo – yeah, it’s like we are rewriting a script.

This particular retrograde has already shown me the plot, setting, players and possible results that will be affecting my life – so I’m ever so watchful.

Capricorn falls in my 6th house of routine, work, health and service and Sagittarius, 5th house – what I love to do, my performance, creativity.

My sleep routine has been interrupted by some noisy neighbors who have illegally rented from the tenant and I’ve had maybe 12 hours sleep over the last 3 days.  This contributes to a rather bitchy, Moody gal.  No one wants to piss off a Leo with Leo rising and Moon in Capricorn.  That’s like – not good.  The rigid General appears with strategic battle – to win at all costs!  Mars in Libra tries to sweep all the bullshit and bad feelings under the rug for peace and harmony – and the angry ember is still burning within especially when the pact is broken.  Then all hell breaks loose!

Or not.

My attention is being grabbed with these unexpected twists and turns (Uranus – unexpected, excitement) square Mercury retro as it stations backward – and Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn and ruler of time – is kinda placing a huge red STOP sign in front of me.  Capricorn is the material world, Mercury is the world of the mind – and Sag is ruler of philosophy, truth, and beliefs – so it’s time to disconnect from the material world and the world of the mind to enter into this meditative space to observe and review.

When shit hits the fan, do you try to clean it up?  That’s what I’m doing.  I’m getting involved in other people’s shit and trying to clean up the mess – I’m all up in other people’s shit.

When something happens, we are ‘triggered’ to respond – we have physical sensations that are the result of our emotions.  These emotions ‘trigger’ these thoughts that are a part of our world view – and then we do something about it to relieve the tension.  Or we run from it.  Or we blame others.

Let’s put all that aside (I’m going to), in favor of observing our inner world without doing anything to change it – that brings us into a state of mindfulness – Mercury’s highest evolution is mindfulness.  When we enter into a state of mindfulness we suddenly realize there is nothing to do.  Not yet.  In time, we realize what we do – and that ‘what we do’ if we are to come from a 5D reality — stems from a 5D perspective and not from the physical sensation of emotional intensity reacting.

The 6th house is also work and with Mercury about to go retrograde – I should pay close attention to how I communicate at work and with co-workers – maybe some old clients will return – maybe run into previous co-workers.  I’ve run into two previous co-workers unexpectedly in places I unexpectedly and rarely visit who also had, at the last minute, decide to venture into new territory.

 

No big deal, you might say. It doesn’t mean a thing.  And yes, it is no big deal.  It doesn’t mean anything except the meaning you give it.  We wouldn’t grow or evolve if we didn’t apply a meaning to something and then investigate this meaning on a deeper level to evoke some inner change.

Remember: As above; so below.

So, allow the machinations of disruption, interference, and possible chaos happen so you aren’t a pawn in the karmic game.

Life is an inner journey.  The outer journey is the experience that you use to understand, learn and grow as a human being.  Or not.  Be an observer of your inner and outer reality – be in this world but not of this world —

Get off the weird mystical tracks that try to make this out to be a magical thinking mystery ride.

Switch the power track from outer to inner – and start the REVOLUTION from within.

The power has always and will always be within you.

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 —

New Moon in Sagittarius

As you begin to realize that every different type of music, everybody’s individual music, has its own rhythm, life, language and heritage, you realize how life changes and you learn how to be more open and adaptive to what is around us.   Yo-Yo Ma

The New Moon in Sagittarius (our beliefs) is conjunct the Sun (soul purpose) rising at the horizon projecting our beliefs into the world.   We want everyone to know what we think about (fill in the blank — ).  Jupiter rules Sagittarius – there is an opportunity to expand our beliefs, our philosophy of life and, with an open mind, listen to what others have to say.  Our beliefs are only one-sided when we don’t include another perspective or at least attempt to understand the other side.  We don’t have to agree with anyone to maintain our beliefs – we can stand in our own truth and respect the other side.

Moon is squaring North node in Virgo in the 9th house (ruler of Jupiter and Sagittarius) and South Node in Pisces 3rd house, conjunct Neptune.  This understanding other people’s perspectives will be challenging.  The South Node represents the past, our poor coping skills and Pisces represents illusions.

The North Node is where we are headed and the North Node is in Mercury-ruled Virgo – questioning our beliefs – using discrimination and analysis to sort the bullshit out from the truth.  This is going to be challenging for us to do yet if we want to be the change we wish to see out in the world.  Be open to and flexible to change.

Your thoughts are a like a light switch that affect how you feel.  You have complete control over your inner world. When you change your thoughts, you change your inner world – and therefore, your perceptions of the world shift.

 

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

Re-aligning ourselves to nature season by season and sign by sign —

The only constant in this world, the only thing we can depend upon, is change.  We experience change on a daily, monthly, and quarterly basis with the fluctuation of light and dark, hot and cold, barren and abundant – The earth is breathing life through its cycles just as we breathe air into our bodies.

Our inner lives are deeply interconnected to the changing of the seasons.  As within, so without.   As above, so below.

You already knew that.  You just forgot.  Our attention is so focused on the outer that we stray from the inner – we then want to reach out to the heavens and transcend our physical reality – before we understand what it’s like to be a human in this physical body in this 3rd dimensional plane of reality.

This 3rd dimension is just as spiritual as 5th dimension – the only difference is perspective.  You still need a physical body as you evolve –

Let’s continue —

Every season holds the promise of a new beginning (Cardinal) that we strengthen and unify through the fixed seasons.  When we reach the mutable seasons we take what we have strengthened and unified and we tweak it, organize it, improve it – as we prepare for another new beginning.

The elements also play a part in this cyclical change.  Fire and Air are the masculine qualities of Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius – these modalities project outward and upward.  The water and earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio are the feminine qualities that reflect downward and within.

The Zodiac begins with Aries

Ah!  Aries energy pulsates and forces its way into our lives just like springtime.   It’s time to plant our seeds and plow the fields.  It takes up a good amount of our energy to do this.  We must not be afraid to use our strength and forceful qualities – we have to eat – right? We are learning how to prepare for life – for the year ahead.  Daylight is increasing and we want more freedom and independence.  We are pushing our energy into the world with the element of fire.

We can only push for so long – before we need to hone those skills, continue to care for the seeds we’ve planted so that they will thrive – a consistency to our tasks – to continue and prepare the crops for the eventual harvest.  The land is ripe and fertile as we move into Taurus – this fixed, stable, wealthy sign is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love and fertility.  We honor Venus through the ritual of May Day – and mating with our beloveds.  It’s a sensual time connecting with the fecundity of the earth – daylight is greater and still increasing — we want our values to match our actions.

As we move into Gemini, daylight is continuing to increase and is greater so we spend even more time outdoors – we are in a mutable sign and acclimatizing to the growth – and we are excited to share to anyone who will listen.  We want to celebrate and exchange ideas – for the sake of doing so (Mercury ruling Gemini in its projective quality).

The Summer Solstice is a time of new beginnings – the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year.  Nighttime increases and daylight is greater.  Cancer rules the beginning of summer —   School is out and we are spending more time with water – going to the lake, swimming in pools or going to the beach.  We want to belong more with others and make commitments– Cancer is all about emotional security and motherhood – so we are connecting to the source that gives us life – our family.  There is this inner connection we begin to have with the world around us.

We want to take this inner connection and incorporate that into our daily lives with those we like to play with.   We want to linger and languor like Lions – we want to maintain summer for as long as we possibly can (fixed) before we go back to work and school.  Most of Europe vacations during August – the crops are ripening. We don’t want to lose our individuality as we strive to belong and make commitments.

We can’t lay around forever; we need have work to do!

Fall is coming – Virgo is here – ruled by Mercury, the inner, reflective manifestation of Mercury.  This mutable quality allows us to separate ‘the wheat from the chaff’ so to speak.  We use that Virgo discernment to determine what we keep that is useful and what we throw away.

School has started and we are adjusting to our new schedule – we might take on more hours at work so we can have more money for the upcoming holiday.  Nighttime is increasing and daylight is still greater – and we want to commit even more to spending every last moment we can in the sun and nature before we retire early and spend more time inside with others.

When Libra approaches darkness is increasing and nighttime is greater – there is a push toward winter preparations and taking midterm exams.  Venus rules Libra here and as nighttime is increasing we are moving toward more intimacy and sharing.  Who wants to sit inside alone during winter months?  Not the Libra!

Scorpio wants a warm body to snuggle up to (is snuggle the right word for Scorpio intimacy?).  It’s also the time when nighttime is continuing to increase and the days are much shorter.  The veil between worlds is thin.  We celebrate Scorpio with Halloween — We are in touch with this spirit world as we pay respects to our ancestors.  Scorpio is a fixed sign ruled by Mars so we do more inner purging of all that no longer serves us so that we can transform and be reborn (Scorpio’s gift!).  Pluto has been given secondary rulership over Scorpio – to further drive the point home that we are going deep within our darkness to find the light.  We want more intimacy with one another!

We have gone deep and purged and we want to shine our light with others –through the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius.  The winter solstice is right around the corner, Christmas and New Year’s not far away – we are becoming excited again and we want to celebrate.  Usually around Thanksgiving, we start to decorate our homes and the city officials decorate the town with lights – we gather as a community for the lighting ceremony.

Jupiter rules Sagittarius –we have learned something about our journey to the underworld and what will not serve us as we move forward into a new year.  We want to celebrate this light and party harty with everyone!  Nighttime is still greater and continuing to increase — and we still want involvement with others — and yet just a bit more freedom than Scorpio is comfortable with.

It makes sense that Saturn is upon us with the ushering in of Capricorn and the Winter Solstice.  We just spent too much money on gifts, ate too much food over the holidays and now we want to make our New Year’s commitment to exercising more and losing weight (as well as saving money and working longer hours to make up for what we spent).  The energy of Saturn wants to restrict and the cardinal modality wants to push that restriction and structure of commitment.  We want more freedom while we maintain responsibility.

As daylight increases, we mold these new commitments we’ve made into the fixed sign of Aquarius.  We are changing, the weather is about to change – college courses resume, we are looking forward to what the future may hold with new ideas (air) and communications with others – if we’ve been holed up inside due to the cold – we want to socialize and be with others.  We want to share what we’ve learned over the winter months.

We are ready to open our hearts and connect back into the world through Pisces – we feel like we’ve been through this before – so we feel like old souls returning, adjusting to what we have learned and preparing for a new beginning.  Snow is melting into water, we are walking around in slush – before we begin again, we are reflecting upon the whole year and continuing to purge that which we haven’t already let go of – for if we do not – we are sure to deceive and delude ourselves.  This is really the season of letting everything go —

Aries will insist upon it.
