Mercury is completing his triple conjunction to Pluto just after midnight tonight. This pattern within a bigger cycle, has gifted us with opportunities to rethink some of our attachments and what worked and what didn’t. It’s time to speak truths that are in alignment with our Souls’s intentions.
We are living in extreme times in a world that is waking up to how deeply connected everything is. The Pluto/Uranus square - stepping stone that has been the big game changer since 2012 is still strong and only 1 degree apart. We will be collectively dancing on our evolutionary edge through 2017. Tuning your frequency, remaining flexible and compassionate will serve everyone.
Hunkering down into a survival mode to avoid changes … insures suffering.Resistance is really futile during these exciting awakening. It’s a time to embrace this cutting edge place, where we can’t possibly know what is coming. Our task is to use the power of the human heart to generate the ‘feelings’ that bring the high vibrations of love, appreciation and creativity. When we take feelings and merge them with the mind (affirmations) … this generates cooperative manifestation.
If you are thinking one thing and feeling another, this creates the disharmony of a push - pull. Find your tools that work for centering and alignment and then create a practice. If you dedicate time for this, everything else will work better!
With in this new paradigm…
How can you simplify your vision and allow your inner guidance to speak to you, so you can co-create / cooperate with the emerging reality we are all contributing to?
Instead of asking ‘what can I get?’ , reframe your focus to ask ‘what can I contribute?’
There is a neural network in the heart that can actually work independently of our minds (the heart has it’s own brain). Marrying the mind and heart into a single network is the latest technology to activate your intuitive guidance and the ability to embrace big change in a healthy way, and the most effective way to change your beliefs at your core. (thanks Gregg Braden)
This feeling many are having… to do something new and different, is the Universe speaking to you.
Are you listening?
That Void Moon all day yesterday… left me feeling like I was barely moving, especially combined with a Mercury station. It demanded that I rest and so I ate loads of papaya and did just that! Today is quite different :)
There are no major aspects today… breath into the space and reorient yourself.
A bridge between the Virgo Moon and Neptune at 1:53 PM can blow some fog into our sense of clarity… it’s temporary and designed to remind us that service performed strictly from duty (without heart in it) is usually draining and unwelcome. Today we are reminded that the intention and energy behind what we do matters.
The Virgo energy is where we take the details and realign to the big picture via service, discernment, grounded practicality and balancing our health… there is the focus today.
The Leo Moon is Void until it enters Virgo tonight at 9:47 PM… this tames down the Leo fire and directs us to inner gratitude and contemplation for our heart-light.
Mercury in Capricorn stations to go direct today at 3:50 CST inside a Void Moon, bringing more attention to what we have learned and discovered during this retrograde period, which is so intrinsically linked to Pluto this time around. We are rebirthing our communication skills and our mental body is being transformed via new links and upgrades to the ‘higher mind’. This process has helped us to clear out the old ways of thinking that are fear based and limited.
Do you notice how you have changed the way you look at things?
Where are you holding on to beliefs that you no longer resonate with?
What is needed for you to release them?
What would life look like if you did?
Reflect on your shifting perspective.
Many of us are still coming to terms with massive internal shifts. By the end of this week, Pluto will meet with Mercury yet again to bring even more clarity and Uranus will stir it all up, so pace yourself, as Mercury heads to the weekend. It’s as if we have taken a truth telling serum and what has been bubbling down deep must be expressed.
An interesting note:
During this coming September, when Pluto stations direct (after going retrograde in April) he will be at the exact degree that Mercury stations at today. Why does that matter? What ever is going on for us individually and as a collective, both now and in September, is strongly linked in some way and I imagine that will be clear by this coming Fall.
What a beautiful night last night, I’m still feeling it :)
Echos of unexpected events reverberate through the next week. With Mercury stationing on Monday, many of us will be ready to move forward in a new way. Remember this, it may take a week or so before the momentum of the forward moving Mercury is noticeable. The storms are still within and around us and we need this time to see what we couldn't see before, as they begin to clear and take the old with them.
Uranus and Black Moon Lilith are creating a bridge to assist us in some inevitable changes, to certain situations in our lives. Having a healthy outlet for pent up energy is a good idea right now. The last thing you want is to be in conflict with the deepest, most authentic part of yourself. We are in the process of balancing between what was and what is becoming. We can feel good about our progress while remembering to be loving in each new moment … to Our Soul - Selves.

We have a Void Moon in Cancer until she leaps into Leo at 1:22 PM CDT. Talk about the perfect opportunity to tune into the divine Feminine! Remember, when I mention Feminine, I am referring to the energetic power of receptivity, allowance, intuition, guidance and grace. These are qualities that enhance our ‘tuning in’ abilities.
After the Moon enters creative Leo at 1:22 PM, Venus shifts into Capricorn at 2:32 PM and the planet of Love steps into claiming her authority… Love takes a leadership position.
The Mercury / Pluto union continues to bring tremendous power and transformation to our mental capacity and communications. This is Big Energy we are dancing in. Allow your emotions to flow as they are: energy in motion and they will deliver you to new awareness if you are allowing.
The Moon in Leo is all about shining our light and sharing our creative, playful nature. The building of the Full Moon energy will be felt all day and it illuminates our personal need to shine. We cannot shine if we are not being our authentic self, no matter how we try. This is a time to walk your talk and stand in your truth, while allowing gratitude and self-love to spark a desire to celebrate the gift called … Your Life!
Jupiter and the North Node conjunction indicate a very expansive opportunity for seeing the bigger picture of your life’s journey and how it all fits together. This is a night to see how far you have come and all that you have learned. Recognize and acknowledge the work you have done and how it contributes to humanity. We all contribute in one way or another. We can ride the wave of this beneficial combo to become more whole, be of service in a way that harmonizes with our Soul and bring greater order and self-mastery into our lives.
Here on the island of Isla Mujeres, as the Moon rises in the night sky and reflects onto the magnificent ocean, we will release old patterns, clear new space and invite inspiration to ignite the light of gratitude and celebration into our hearts. Our ritual will be simple… as we invite the inner child within us to unleash our Self Love in playful expression and unabashed innocence. We invite you to join us in your own way :)
Many Blessings to you all! Big Love!!!
After yesterday’s adventurous escapades… the Moon is in the sensitive sign of Cancer all day and our emotional body is in need of extra nurturing and gentle attention. We want to embrace our intuitive, receptive side and acknowledge our need for caring for each other and the beauty of this human connection.
Retrograde Mercury is supplying opportunities to see and think of things in a brand new way. A Mercury alignment with Pluto (which is transformation of the mental body, big time) is in play… building towards an exact contact tomorrow. Give yourself plenty of room to reassess, readdress, release and reconfigure any beliefs that no longer serve who you have become.
A helpful water connection between the Moon and Neptune brings more emphasis to the feminine nature of emotions and spirituality. Looking through a compassionate lens at your self and others will be hugely beneficial and re-enforce the experience of the inner connectedness of all that is. A nice warm bath at the end of the day could be just the ticket!
It’s a versatile, talkative Gemini Moon that skips around a bit today and the lunar connections can bring a sense of curious instability. Get out ahead of this and keep chatter to a minimum, by remembering the Mercury retrograde as an excellent time to do inner work that helps integrate our latest expansion. Stay light - hearted as Gemini has a great sense of humor.
This is not a day to go up against external authority; it’s a day for observing where you stand with your own. This is the Sun’s last day in Capricorn, a powerful leadership/teacher point. What is it relaying to you? Check out your inner dialogue - if it’s based on insecurities, you need to clean it up… we all do! It’s time to rise, no more hiding out.
Venus and the Nodes have been nudging us to take conscious steps away from victimhood, codependency and denial and turn towards our healing and ‘wholing’ …implementing discernment and intuition with a new level of integrity.
It’s more inside, heart-felt work.
Our Monday starts with the Moon in stable, grounded Taurus and the the beginning of our day brings supportive lunar aspects to Uranus and Mercury. This is a morning where communications will go well. With the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Pluto and Jupiter all in earth signs… steady productivity and practical application can take the lead.
Meanwhile, a water trine between Mars and Neptune sets us up for deepening a mystical or spiritual connection, one that we can feel viscerally in our bodies. Intuition is heightened.
What a great day to tune in to higher frequencies with centering activities like yoga, meditation, dance, aromatherapy baths etc.
We do have a ‘back to earth’ aspect between the Sun and Saturn that could turn our attention more to duties and tasks that need handling. Hopefully we can strike a balance that includes compassion and dreams into our work. Visualize what you want to manifest and then take steps to get it happening.
The Taurus Moon trines Jupiter in Virgo mid-afternoon, adding additional harmonious grounding energy to the mix. I may be a tree hugger today :)
I’ll keep it short today ;)
We have a Taurus Moon, slowing the tempo somewhat. It's nice energy for connecting to nature and your inner voice for guidance.
We have a steppingstone-square between Jupiter and Venus today. It’s a nice day for socializing and having some fun. It’s not very conducive energy for getting work done, it’s a play day!
Optimism, generosity and good feelings are in big supply today. Take care not to over-spend or over-indulge… as moderation may be hard to come by.
The higher manifestation of this aspect speaks to Jupiter’s wisdom elevating our heart to a newly expanded place, where more joy is available. Happy Sunday!
