Wow, here we are at the last day of April. The higher vibrational of the Schumann resonance that has picked up speed… has much to do with why we experience our time speeding up.
A disharmonious connection between Venus and Saturn at 3:14 AM may be lingering into this day. If you find yourself concerned or overpowered about not having enough… money, attention, support, resources etc. … know it will pass and don’t give it too much weight. The Aquarius Moon helps us to get some distance from any attitude that may feel too entrenched in negative emotions.
A lunar sextile to Uranus at 6:55 PM, sets us up to try something new say yes and enjoy it.
A lunar square steppingstone to retrograde Mercury at 9:56 PM can have us revisiting some challenging discussion from the past. Remember that we are spiraling and a revisit is not going backwards. We need the retrograde process for better integration.
This physical recalibration that many of us are aware of at this time… has really push some of us to what we thought was our limit.
I for one have been experiencing the wildest physical symptoms ad am currently in bed with my glands swollen and body on fire. My skin is being completely transformed… especially around my throat and third eye chakras. I am not sharing this to solicit support or sympathy, but rather to provide testimony of very odd and unusual physic experiences. My take on it is this:
I asked (way back at the end of January) to be upgraded, to be recalibrate so that I could receive the new energies with greater ease and clarity and be an effective messenger for whoever needed it.
Ever since then my body and I have been dancing to some pretty weird tunes. It has taken me and my ego through every possible judgement, conclusion, fear, emotion and false identity. Even in the midst of this I am certain that this is a gift - uncomfortable as it may be.
Many of us are on a similar journey as we head towards the Eris/Uranus conjunction this summer. From 2015 to 2020, everything is up for transformation and metamorphosis. It’s just best to accept the journey and to be open to living in the power of the current moment.
Trying to figure out where all of this will land and what will be, is a waste of energy and counter productive at this point. Of course, living in this modern, fast paced world requires planning, scheduling and projecting. We just need moments where we set that all aside and tune into the beauty available. In each moment we can remind ourselves - that everything is fine.
I have learned to be much kinder to myself in this transmutational process and I hope you all are doing the same. Keep looking up and just let the light in :)
Right around 10 AM, the Capricorn Moon trines the Taurus Sun bringing some earthy balance to the beginning of our day. Goals and practical plans get a boost, especially if we take the time to center ourselves 1st and listen for our inner voice to lead the way.
The Moon then connects to a retrograde Mars with a semisextile, just an hour later and we might feel a strong need to push forward and act swiftly. The retrograde will support small steps instead of big leaps. Long-range tactics combined with networking will be a wise choice.
A lunar sextile to Neptune at 4:57 PM can really bring an artistic flare and creative sensitivity to what ever you are taking on late in the day.
Then after dinner, the Taurus Sun will quincunx (incunjunct) the retrograde Mars in Sagittarius, which can be experienced as some form of tension or friction. It’s where our need for stability rubs up against our need for adventure and freedom. Mars is on his inner journey right now and our need to take action can feel thwarted in some way. This is really a better time to complete actions that were initiated in the past, while we see what else comes to light during the retrograde. If your energy gets a bit stuck, any form of exercise will help it to move.
We end the evening with an earth trine between the Moon and Jupiter and this can help bring the events of the day into a benevolent perspective that just feels good. Enjoy.
The Sagittarius Moon challenges Mercury at 6 AM, so watch your morning conversations and refrain from projecting your vision of how someone else should be…instead, let them be.
A harmonious lunar trine to Venus at 10:52 AM starts a Void Moon period that will last until 6:55 PM. No big challenging aspects lurking here for almost 8 hours. It's more breathing room :)
We can find cooperation within this Void, so keep your heart and your ears and eyes open for inspiration. The Void time can help us to tune into an inner vision and with Mars retrograde, our bodies are delivering previously hidden messages that we need to listen to.
The Void ends with the Moon marching into Capricorn at 6:55 PM, taking our attention back to practical skills and accomplishing goals.
Late tonight after 10 PM, Venus and Neptune will turn up the volume on Love and compassion. Kindness just feels good. This is a nice way to head off into dreamland.
Our week starts out with the Sagittarius Moon shooting for optimistic and philosophical input on our decisions. We are better off going for tangible progress as the day unfolds with the Moon forming a spread of challenging aspects to Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn.
Mercury in Taurus will form a semisextile to Eris, indicating the arrival of some support to speak about what we have been trying to ignore, or play down. Eris will make sure that a move from tradition will be possible, if it is needed.
Eris in Aries is our purposeful inner disruptor, waking us up to our authentic nature… she is here to bring on major change that will be ultimately liberating.
Mercury is headed for his station and will move into his retrograde period this Thursday. As he begins to slow down in preparation for his directional change, ideas that make sense become more prominent - practicality is woven into the new way we initiate surprising choices.
Be willing to stay flexible, open-minded and ready for unexpected turns. That way you will enjoy the ride no matter what.
The Moon enters Sagittarius early this morning and the shift from the depths of Scorpio to the fire of Sagittarius will be noticeable before noon. Our passions and emotions turn more optimistic and philosophical.
Venus has been activated all week and today, this Goddess of Love and Beauty conjoins with Eris - the feminine disrupter. When the archetype of the heart becomes one with the archetype of purposeful discord, who knows what will transpire. This is all connected to the Uranus/Eris awakening that will continue to shake up the entire planet fro some time to come.
Eris conjunct Venus can upset current relationship conditions, if they have gone stale and are stuck in maintaining the status quo. This serves to motivate us to take a stand for what we value and mobilized energy to make key changes. We can reboot and rebirth our heart connections.
This week, Venus has positively connected to Saturn, squared Pluto and conjoined Uranus and then Eris. She is really being fully upgraded and recalibrated. So we end the week with a Venus/Chiron semisextile this afternoon, which will assist us in understanding all the activations, adjustments, endings and new beginnings that have come about. Perhaps now, it will all start to integrate.
There are not any major planetary aspects today… ahh, a bit of breathing room.
The Scorpio Moon does form a bridge (opposition) to Mercury in Taurus after 4 PM, inviting us to observe our communications and connections and speak honestly about our deepest feelings. This bridge can demonstrate the nature of the polarity between change and stability… if you bump into your stubborn side, or someone else digs their heals in… remember we can only be in control of our responses and it’s not up to us to try and change another person. Everything is not black and white... the gray areas are vast and educational.
Two hours later, a lunar trine to Chiron in Pisces invites us to tap into deep levels of compassion and understanding. It’s a time to lighten up on ourselves and others and remember we are all in this crazy dance together, just doing the best we know how.
There is the Venus/Uranus alignment still very prominent, which has the potential to create new alliances. It’s a time to be open to new people and situations that are unique and not our norm. Let any restlessness that we have be tempered with wisdom.
Warning: I’m on a bit of a soapbox today…
We are still very much in the resonance of the Scorpio Full Moon all day. It's a transformative, transmutational time with powerful Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) just beginning his retrograde.
The Uranus/Venus conjunction in Aries is very close to Eris at this time. We are building towards an exact Uranus/Eris conjunction this Summer, that will make the current cultural shifts seem mild by comparison. Please understand that statement is not meant to generate fear. I just feel it’s timely and important to grasp the truth… that we are in the middle of an epic turn in our society’s evolution and that means things will be shaken up. How else can the old systems give way for the new.
We can’t continue to live in the old paradigm of fear and greed on this earth without perishing. We have an amazing opportunity to have our humanity exceed our technology; to live in a world of cooperation, contribution and trust… if we are willing to give up the old ways. Big changes like this are not particularly comfortable and they demand a lot from our nervous systems, our psyche and our mental and emotional body. As I keep reminding myself, It becomes even more important that we self-sooth and ground more frequently.
Eris is the feminine awakener and she generates inner disruption to get our attention and wake us up. That doesn’t mean it has to be unpleasant, but it does indicate that any part of our consciousness that has become antiquated, will be changed. Eris has surprising ways of opening us up to see beyond our limited perceptions, by creating circumstances that require adjusting our beliefs to accommodate the swiftness of our expanding awareness.
If our current path is congruent with our Soul’s desired growth path, then we will embrace it with new passion and courage…. and if it is not, then change will surely show up on our doorstep.
The 1st part of April feels very different than the second half. The energy shift mid way through has slowed things down with strong, intense emotions coming to the surface to be released and a huge review of our choices, strategies and actions has ensued. Wondering where our inspired certainty went as solid no longer feels solid. Self Blame and hidden fear needs to be released, as we come to terms with the fact that there are more questions than answers now.
The friction that many of us are feeling (as if we have been pulled apart) is stimulating a deeper, honest assessment of what we are doing and where we are headed… it’s purposeful.
A class M6 Solar Flare on the 18th was still resonating strong yesterday. I received reports that many of us felt off and exhausted and ‘not right’. Today, I get this image of the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz, being restored, restructured and made new. That’s how I have been feeling with intense physical and physiological shifts that have completely overtaken my ability to push forward - thank goodness. This is not a time for pressing forward.
Many are questioning their effectiveness and their ability to pull off what they have committed to. Don’t let doubt undermine your sense of value and ability. Really give yourself permission to find empowerment in the reevaluation - remodeling process. Going more with the 'Cosmic Flow of Frequencies' results in greater ease and most importantly... it opens you up to receive the latest downloads, upgrades and codes that is part of creating our new world.
The Full Moon happens at 2 degrees of Scorpio, just after midnight tonight at 12:24 AM… so let’s talk about it today.
There can be lots of intense feelings at this time and some secrets can be revealed from deeply buried emotion. This Scorpio Full Moon invites us to turn and face our personal power and our willingness to own it or not. It’s a right of passage, with Pluto - the ruler of Scorpio - just beginning his retrograde.
Venus is joining Uranus and squares Pluto - reflecting that this is a time for recalibration, to be very honest with what we are feeling and to change how we were doing things before. The heart is awakening even more now and freedom and independence becomes a focus. Again, where do you give your power away? Love must rule and tip the scales. Relationships of all kinds need cleansing.
The retrograde of Mars and Pluto are serving us to reflect on our choices. We can be soothed by transcending out of our technology and into nature... where our organic inner strength is fed.
It’s my greatest refuge for peace these days.
The Scorpio energetic is the evolutionary process as we step into our Soul’s power. It’s about the alchemy and magic we contain within us. Use the light of this Full Moon to reboot, rebirth your inner world, let go of the old and remember this kind of growth is not the end of our Joy… it’s the beginning.
We are headed for a Scorpio Full Moon on Thursday night and a Venus/Uranus conjunction on Friday. I mention it today because as we head towards these powerful, change inducing markers (they just keep on coming), it’s important to stop and look at what recurring stories and monkey-mind patterns are churning in our heads. Look to see what emotional issues are intensifying. You know… the ones you have been trying to keep under raps.
Get out in front of this… understanding that something about our relationships, finances, self worth, values and heart felt guidance is about to shift, from all the quaking and awakening that’s going on.
We are in an important process of digging through our psychic, mental and emotional stuff and deciding what we want to give away, upgrade, discard or reconnect to and keep. This requires raw honesty with our Self. It is important to get some rest, as this is deep and profound work.
The Moon in Libra today is seeking balance and peace and we want to bask in the appreciation of beauty early on. The late afternoon and evening delivers a different frequency as the Libra Moon triggers the intensity of the Venus/Uranus/Pluto connection…bringing deep and turbulent emotions to the surface for us to feel, observe and work through.
The next few days will not support coverups and pretending things are just fine when inside… we are screaming for some relief, something has to give. Honest disclosure with a dose of kindness for the other’s perspective is called for now.
