I couldn't seem to make this short today…
Here we are at the last day of February - a leap year - the 29 = 11 in numerology, adding some type of power portal that we will need to step up to, if we are to benefit from it. Pay attention to synchronicities and messages that may show up and may help you to leap forward. The Scorpio Moon goes Void from 1:56 PM to 5 :57 PM CST and as always it’s a time for reflection, not the best time for big important decisions, so sit with it until you know your integrity is driving your choice. The Moon enters Sagittarius at the end of the Void and with it the energy lightens up.
Venus (our heart desires and values) sextiles Saturn (boundaries, structures and inner authority) bringing some opportunity to stabilize relationships. This can be fantastic for business endeavors… allow practicality to help manifest an inspired vision.
We are headed into Eclipse season in 8 days so we need to set our energy field and intention repeatedly throughout the day (not just once) to move forward with positive momentum. Starting our day in neutral, without any real focus and intention, can get us lost rather quickly and leave us wondering what happened. Co-create by putting your higher mind and heart in charge…consistently.
We had the Sun join Neptune in illuminating Pisces yesterday and the dreamy, nebulous energetic continues to accentuate opportunities for spiritual awakenings and creativity… inspired from the dreams of our Souls. Stay focused on the higher resonance of Pisces, trust in the inherent goodness of the Universe and if you find yourself in the lower spirals of Pisces (escapism, martyrdom, victimhood), remember the way out is to focus your attention on something you appreciate, find gratitude for little things and repeat it until you feel better.
The collective is demonstrating some pretty crazy stuff as of late. These events are evidence of a turning of the tides, a paradigm shift in the making that requires some structures, relationships, etc. - to fall apart, to make space for the new to emerge.
We need to keep our inner landscape clean and peaceful, using any and all techniques that get us there. Staying grounded right now is more challenging and very important… the more you ground the better you will feel. It will keep your inner GPS system running smoothy and minimize negativity. When is the last time you took your shoes off and stood on real Earth? Try it … give it 5 to 10 minutes and see how you feel.
The only major aspect today is an inconjunct (quincunx) between Mercury and Jupiter. This suggest we will need to remain flexible as the need for making adjustments is in the air. Mercury in Aquarius brings forward vision and eccentric, outside the box thinking, while Jupiter in Virgo takes a grounded, practical approach to expansion and growth. These frequencies don’t mix easily and it takes shifting and compromise for then to unite in action.
Many of us are experiencing lots of physical changes and the Scorpio-Mars retrograde up ahead (we are in the shadow phase of it now) is excavating and dredging up hidden body patterns for release. Chiron is traveling with the South Node and harmonizes with Mars, suggesting great healing is afoot with this water trine. The nature of this healing energy brings up emotions that run deep (Scorpio) and it permeates our energetic field (Pisces), so we must Love ourselves through this process.
Compassion for self and others is paramount with all the Pisces energy we are entering now. Watch out for self-sacrifice as a way to express how much you care! Pisces lower vibe lessons are all about boundaries and victimhood.
How do we hold healthy boundaries in the limitless field?
How can we reflect universal Love without sacrificing our selves to others.
Who is reflecting our truth of oneness and harmony?
Who is reflecting where we feel separate and unloved?
How can we own our reflection without blaming ANYONE.
Everything and everyone is our teacher and it’s neither good or bad… its just directions and course corrections. Breath deep and be the Light that you are.
Just before sunrise, the Libra Moon forms a bridge to Uranus in Aries and then 3 hours later she hooks up nicely with Jupiter… all this speaks to an upbeat, somewhat restless morning. There is a Uranus theme to this day that indicates we would be wise to stay alert and open to something new and progressive.
Its an interesting mix today - the inspirational fire of Uranus in Aries - while the Pisces Sun parallels Neptune - an otherworldly, sensitive, psychic, and mystical combo. This enhances spiritual focus along with creativity, artistic expression, compassionate service and romance. We do need to navigate Pisces waters with care, as facing reality is not so much its cup of tea. This energy tends to be ungrounded and would rather escape from reality and live in the imagination and dream. But hey, channel it productively and you get vast results. Einstein was a Pisces and he said “Imagination is more important than knowledge” and he definitely made an impact!
At 5:02 PM, Mercury sextiles Uranus and brilliant minds are buzzing a mile a minute. You may have a fresh, forward thinking concept that finds new resources to get it going. Pioneering and innovative ideas are prominent and on a spiritual level… the higher mind is posed for downloads and sudden awakenings… so pay attention, listen for signs and definitely make connections.
Thursday the 25th
Well better late than never…
I am in the middle of a major physical clearing, as Mars in Scorpio rides close to my Ascendant and Chiron trines my Saturn in Scorpio. Experiencing another round of weird eye/neck stuff… allowing and loving what arises is the name of the game.
Sometimes it’s a bit more difficult to surrender, but there are great gifts when we do! Chiron, still hand in hand with the South Node, brings a climate for clearing and healing while the Sun makes his way towards Neptune (exact this Sunday). The Neptunian influence is increasing in strength. Water and all modalities connected to water (hot baths, swimming, sitting by a stream, etc. can bring visions, heightened intuition and relief. Let your imagination take you to new places. Do something creatively different... I will watercolor tonight :)
Mercury (mind and the new masculine) connects in a helpful way to Saturn and Pluto, indicating we are capable of transforming some mental pattern when we take the time to observe it all the way through to the root. Vibrations are of such that we can say goodbye to the old more easily than ever before. Hidden feelings and protective systems that have kept us stuck in some way… can be seen and moved today!
We have a bridge between Jupiter and Chiron that is bringing opportunities for great healing (wholing) in ways we may have never encountered before. The first bridge (opposition) was formed November 3, 2015 and the final one is August 12th this year, creating a vast opening where we can truly let go of the past stories of wounding… to move more fully into living in the present moment - the only thing that really exists.
Vey deep stuff can show up to be cleared and released. Jupiter in Virgo brings great expansion and new levels of wisdom and understanding to the mind-body. This is a good time to explore healing techniques like acupuncture, yoga, massage. EFT and such to uncover lodged emotional points and let them go. With Mars in Scorpio already in his retrograde shadow… body stuff may come up for clearing… it is for me Big Time!
Chiron in Pisces (on the other side of the bridge form Jupiter) beckons us to cross into the limitless field of Oneness… it is a quantum experience and we can view it from different levels… different dimensions. Think of it as lower and higher vibrations that have nothing to do with good and bad, right and wrong, pass or fail.
It’s all a matter of density and the higher vibration carries more light. The more we resonate there… the more we experience ourselves as that Light and Co-create with Universal forces with greater receptivity, flow and ease.
Later this evening, the Virgo Moon will join Jupiter and the North Node, which can illuminate how this process is unifying our newest Selves with a conscious choice for greater well being.
Note to Self: Virgo in it’s lower, more dense vibration can be hyper critical, condemning and judgmental. If you find yourself in any of that …lust recognize it and dial yourself up to the higher resonance of Virgo, which is stable, strong and reenforces inner alignment.
Realignment and ‘Wholing’ is what this is all about!
The Moon moves into Virgo at 5:25 AM and the Full Moon becomes exact at 12:20 P CDT. Each full Moon brings the Sun and Moon to opposites signs where they form a bridge (traditionally known as an opposition). In this case the bridge is between the Sun in mystical Pisces and the Moon in service oriented Virgo… at 3 degrees.
Today’s date - 22 - is considered a ‘master number’ which adds a huge emphasis to our inner mastery and balance with all that is. So this Virgo Full Moon has an added intensity via the numerology. Heighten intuition inspires the question “What is my dream?”
Mystical Neptune and nurturing Ceres are sitting right with the Sun in it’s home sign of Pisces and Jupiter is in Virgo with the Moon… so we are expanding our ability to focus on details, gaining insight into how we nurture ourselves and others, as well as increasing clarity about which relationships are healthy and which ones are toxic. The Sun is clearing up some of our foggy perspective.
How can we be of service in a spiritually enriched way. I’m not talking about religion, I’m referring to the sense of heightened awareness and presence that brings fulfillment in those moments of a job well done that effects others in a positive way. With Mercury and Venus in Aquarius, we look to the future to see how to manifest our dreams of abundance with a breakthrough in a unique way.
Don’t we all deserve to find work that we feel is worthwhile?
How can we create greater satisfaction in our jobs while fulfilling our responsibilities?
Where are we too self-sacrificing to please others?
What steps could we take to elevate our personal integrity with our Selves?
Its time to integrate the imaginative, soulful energy of Pisces with the efficiency and mastery of Virgo’s ability to refine and ‘whole’ what is fragmented. This is a time to get real about your dreams and see where you might be lost in wishful thinking. Dreams (Pisces) take Work (Virgo) to manifest.
Also, effecting this Virgo Full Moon, Jupiter will join Chiron exactly tomorrow and this energy invites us to address and heal confidence and self-worth issues. It’s time to clean and clear your life… Virgo doesn’t like clutter so discard or pass-forward all the stuff that is weighing your space down.
This Moon is planting seeds that will be felt during the upcoming Eclipse season starting in March. Virgo is an earth sign and the more we take time to reconnect to our Gaia, the more we will be able to hear the divine, healing messages the Universe sends to us. Pisces brings focus to the flow of life as all waters flow to the Oceans… Neptune’s domain.
I am hearing this frequently “stop reaching and begin allowing and receiving to flow in this new paradigm shift.”
Our Lunar story:
The Leo Moon trines Uranus early this morning and we can feel inspired to express ourselves in some new and unique way. The morning carries a playful optimism that we can ride into the afternoon. Early evening brings a stepping-stone square between the Moon and Mars in Scorpio, offering up opportunities for the Scorpio energy to reveal something we need to look at and rise above that relates to our physicality and living in a body.
Neptune and Ceres couple today in Pisces and the limitless field of potential surrounds us like a fog bank. Don’t be surprised if answers seem too vague to grasp and visions feel blurry… it’s part of an energy shift that will clear the air with the light of the full moon in Virgo tomorrow.
Ceres - the great mother Goddess, now one with Neptune - Lord of the Oceans - all in Pisces - the waters of the world … is all about nurturing and healing the emotional body of our individuality and the planet. Each drop of water (each one of us) makes up the entire water on the planet (our collective humanity) and we are charged to heal (whole) ourselves …. to clean our waters, to love where we live. Nurture yourself today.
Yesterdays Cancer Moon was Void for the entire day until 8:18 PM evening… and I apparently went Void with it. :)
Today’s Moon dances in the playful, creative fires of Leo. Gratitude and generosity are always the higher expressions of Leo, so stay with that and you will find many reasons to celebrate your life today. We can find appreciation for the smallest things, the simplest gestures and the light-heartedness of a child (perhaps your inner child), as Self-expression is the name of the game.
If you feel uninspired, or like you just don't have the time… perhaps you have been overworking, spending too much time on a computer and social media. When is the last time you stood barefoot, or danced freely, courageously tried something new, or laughed uncontrollably? If you have let ‘work’ take you over, take your self back to some form of fun, play and celebratory pleasure, the renewal you find there will enhance your work. I had to do it :)
Lower expressions of Leo can be Ego-Centric, if someone goes there… just laugh it off and make sure you don’t go there as well.
Unconditional Love and idealism are part of the tone today, with Mercury harmonizing to Ceres and then Neptune, this brings focus to ideals, visions and fantasies. With Mercury in Aquarius and the Moon creating a bridge between 2 and 3 PM… we can get glimpses into the future so pay attention to information you hear today, insights, ideas and thoughts that ring true. They are bringing messages that can make a difference.
The energies shift a little today, but we are still in what I would call ‘breathing space’ as the Gemini Moon goes Void at 10:38 AM and enters the emotionally sensitive waters of Cancer by 1:25 PM. If you found it hard to keep your train of thought contiguous over the last two days… you were not alone. Even though this Void period is short (3 hours) it happens in the middle of the day, suggesting that lunch time will be more on the quiet side. It’s a good time to reflect and see how your thoughts are operating.
Ask yourself without judgement if your thinking has been generated from Love or fear. We are constantly needing to observe our metal processes as the collective wakes up. There is no blame here… only a commitment to constantly tune to a higher channel where we trust in Divine Laws that propel us forward. Just keep dialing your attention towards the higher knowing and if you can’t find it.. ask for help.
The past and the future are illusory, your power lies in the current moment so return there, return to Love.
Venus and Saturn dance today with some friction in their steps… but no worries, just allow others to be where they are and focus on taking care of yourself. Someone could feel distant and if that is the case, it’s an opportunity for you to get that they have their own process and don’t personalize it.
The Cancer Moon (beginning at 1:25 PM) directs our emotional needs towards family, security, nurturing, the Moon, bodies of water, mothering and home. Observe your feelings and remember you are not your feelings, you are the one watching.
The Evening brings a sextile between Mars in Scorpio and the North Node in Virgo, suggesting we are posed to take actions that bring progress. Mars in Scorpio has strong focus and is committed to diving deep to get to the Truth. The North Node in Virgo speaks to discernment, integrity, showing up and doing the work and healing the fragmented parts of ourselves into a new Whole. This energy anchors new foundations in our lives that we can build on for some time to come. Look to see where Virgo is in your chart... that is where new things will be happening.
