NOV, 2016 : TAURUS FULL MOON : The Upside Down

2016 US Election

Netflix has a hit show, “Stranger Things” a summer surprise hit; a take on 80’s flicks, where kids are the heroes and defeat the evil government scientists. They stumble into this when one of their friends gets drawn into the Upside Down. A parallel universe, the “negative” of our plane here. Where we live in Light, the Upside Down is dark, a forever gray, snowy, dystopian place, where monsters live.

The. Upside. Down.

On the night of November 8 2016, our reality tilted, perhaps I should say my reality tilted. I believed I lived in a country where misogyny and racism were on the way out.

After all we had just had 8 years of a black president; a thoughtful, measured, and intelligent man. Who worked hard to get the uninsured healthcare, who worked hard to bridge the divide with the staunchly republican congress, who worked hard to get the economy back on track, to where the US now has an unemployment rate of less than 5%. Who worked hard to better the lives of all in our country.

The white lady was perceived to have a bad history, although not Snow White, she had served her country for more than 30 years; I have no doubt without her efforts as First Lady to implement healthcare for everyone, there would not have been an Affordable Care Act. She worked hard to improve the lives of women and children. She was instrumental in taking out, perhaps the most “wanted” criminal the US ever had, the person who instigated the horror of 9/11. She is by light years, the more qualified, competent and steady candidate.

I wrote this on January 1, 2016

We will see the end to the historic presidency of Barack Obama, and this time next year, the US will have a new President, and NO ONE can possibly predict who that will be.

I wrote this in May 2016.

We have stepped into a new reality; one where a shady, celebrity business man who is famous for saying “You’re FIRED!” is in all probability going to be the 2016 US PRESIDENTIAL REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE.

I saw the cracks, but did not comprehend that everything I believed was wrong. We are still mired in racism, misogyny and hate. The US elected a narcissistic racist misogynist buffoon. But he is a WHITE MALE.

I have read much about how the Democratic Party failed, how the pollsters failed, how the media failed.

We have all failed. We have collectively chosen to embrace the monsters. And for the next 4 years we will live in the UPSIDE DOWN.

MAY 21, 2016 : SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON : MADNESS

Madness

Through The Looking Glass, Alice

We have stepped into a new reality; one where a shady, celebrity business man who is famous for saying “You’re FIRED!” is in all probability going to be the 2016 US PRESIDENTIAL REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE.

Does this strike anyone as madness?

At first it seemed like a joke, then there was denial, then a strange sort of acceptance and surrender from the Republican Party.

On the Democratic side, upstart Bernie(a Senator for many years) is giving Hillary a run for her money. And Hillary, White Queen or Red Queen?

Is this madness? Or is this the dire result of a very unhappy electorate? I would say a little of both.

2016 has been quite the year to date. Powerful Eclipses in March, SuperMoons, and a Powerful Full Moon takes place on the Summer Solstice on June 20, with more Eclipses to follow in August and September, quite the year indeed.

JAN 1, 2016 : LIBRA LAST QUARTER MOON : What now?

AuoraPurple

Last Quarter Moon at 12 Degrees Libra

2016

We start the year 2016 with a last quarter lunation; last quarter moons represent waning, winding down, an end to the cycle that started with the new moon. Typically last quarter moons are a time for reflecting and wrapping things up; endings.

Just so happens that our beloved trickster, Mercury, turns retrograde on January 5th, another backwards start to a new year.

In numerology, 2016 adds up to a 9 year; 9 also represents the end of a cycle.

2016 is a Red Fire Monkey year in Chinese astrology; Monkey is the 9th animal in 12 Chinese zodiac signs, and the Chinese New Year begins on Feb 8th.

We will see the end to the historic presidency of Barack Obama, and this time next year, the US will have a new President, and NO ONE can possibly predict who that will be.

Here is a list of a few things I would like to see end:

Hatred and Violence

Violence against Women

Violence against Children

Violence against Animals

Violence against the Earth

Poverty and Starvation

Homelessness

Unimaginable Corporate Greed and Rampant Materialism

As endings bring new beginnings, here is what I wish for:

That all people would begin to understand we are part of something far greater than our current state of consciousness can comprehend.

That there is no one “right” deity, or government, or movement, that justifies violence in their name.

That basically, we are all made of the same stuff, and we need to wake the fuck up.

Magical thinking, of course, but can’t stop me from wishing.

The Sabian Symbols for this Last Quarter Moon on January 1, 2016:

MOON at

(LIBRA 12) MINERS ARE SURFACING FROM A DEEP COAL MINE

[Keynote: The need to carry on at ever deeper levels the quest for knowledge which keeps burning the fires of the collective mind of a society.] (Rudhyar)

SUN at

(CAPRICORN 12) AN ILLUSTRATED LECTURE ON NATURAL SCIENCE REVEALS LITTLE KNOWN ASPECTS OF LIFE

[Keynote: The ability to explore unfamiliar realms and discover the laws underlying the complex processes of nature.] (Rudhyar)

As someone who studies the energies of our world, and the influences of the heavens, people keep asking me what is it, what is going on right now? And I find I have no answer. Things have gone off the charts, the grind, the energies so intense that everyday feels like a full moon and full moons feel like eclipses. The best we can do is stay present, pay attention, be fluid, and flow with the continual fluctuations. Take care of ourselves and help others as best we can.

September 8, 2014 : Pisces Full Moon : COSMIC

MilkyWay2 copyOUR PLACE IN SPACE

It has  been a long while since my last post, as my energy and attention have been focused on making a living.

I very much love writing about Astrology and the Sabian Symbols, and hope to soon return to writing posts on a regular basis.

Much has happened over the last several months, many startling events such as a Civilian Airliner shot down by separatist rebels, and the bodies laying in an open field for days; a radical faction in Iraq pillaging entire villages, to their most recent vicious executions of two Western journalists; an entity with the strangely chosen name an acronym of an ancient Egyptian Goddess of fertility and motherhood. ISIS in its modern patriarchal form is an entity hellbent on destruction and death.

The Full Moon takes place on Monday September 8th, the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces. As Chiron (the Wounded Healer) and Neptune (the Electric Blue Sea of Spirit) are both transiting Pisces, and Venus (LOVE) is in Virgo under the rays of the Sun; the energy of pulling in the higher energies of cosmic consciousness and healing are available to all of us. We only have to open our hearts, which in essence expands our consciousness.

The video below reveals new information about the known Universe and our place within. As we get caught up in our daily lives, the pettiness, the mundane, the witness to radical fanaticism whose narrow consciousness seeks only anger and hate in the name of God.

Let us remember there is so much more out there. So much to be known and explored. So much Love and Light to overcome the Darkness.

April 15, 2014 : Libra Lunar Eclipse Moon : DOOM

Doom: I say Nay, Nay

There has been a spate of celebrity deaths over the last few weeks. John Pinette was a comedian I used to listen to quite often; I had a job that put me in my car for long periods of time and I would listen to comedy channels. Mr. Pinette was one of my favorites. He was known for his self-deprecating humor, and using the line “I say Nay Nay,” to express his disagreement. He was one of the few comedians these days, who was funny without using vulgarity or misogyny in his routine. Thank you for making many of us laugh, Mr. Pinette, may you find Peace and Light on your journey.

There has been much written about April 2014, much doom and gloom. I have read some other posts that suggest not to make any big decisions during Eclipse season, as decisions made at this time never work out. Well to borrow Mr. Pinette’s line, I say Nay Nay.

Lunar Eclipses are akin to Full Moons on steroids, the energy brings a culmination of events started long ago and/or initiates action where action is needed. Change is scary for many of us, even “good” changes. The Ego seeks security and routine, this is a greatly needed function for our psychic survival. However, the Soul operates on an entirely different level seeking Spiritual growth, and this usually occurs through great change. And although these changes are not always easy for the Ego to process, major decisions and changes bring us growth and are part of the reason we are here, to learn and grow. Embrace change and honor your Intuition, we are all affected differently by the energies, and for many of us, it might be a wonderful time to make big changes in our lives.

“According to an old proverb, it is only in times of despair that the pupil seeks the teacher. This illustrates that suffering and disappointment are not only indispensable for spiritual and psychological development, but in the end also have healing properties.”

-Astodienst.com

The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at this Eclipse speaks to the polarization of our consciousness, and that in the end, there is no difference between good and bad experiences, all we are, all we do, is leading us back to the source-LOVE.

SYMBOL LIBRA 26

The Sabian Symbol for the MOON at the FULL MOON ECLIPSE on April 15, 2014:

(LIBRA 26)  AN EAGLE AND A LARGE WHITE DOVE CHANGE INTO EACH OTHER

[Keynote: The interaction of the spiritual Will and of the Love principle when critical needs arise.]

Consciousness operates beyond duality, because the polarized energies of the Soul (or Spirit), Will and Love, though ever distinct, work for a single purpose.
(Rudhyar)

———————————————————————————————————————————-

The Sabian Symbol for the SUN at the FULL MOON ECLIPSE on April 15, 2014:
(ARIES 26)  A MAN POSSESSED BY MORE GIFTS THAN HE CAN HOLD

[Keynote: Obsession by potentiality.]
(Rudhyar)

The Moon at 26 Libra (Cardinal-Air) is joined with the Asteroid Goddesses Ceres, Vesta, and the transiting North-Node. Ceres and Vesta represent issues of Hearth and Home. The transiting North-Node represents new directions in our lives.

The Sun at 26 Aries (Cardinal-Fire) is joined by the Asteroid Goddess Juno and transiting South-Node, indicating issues of Hearth and Home may be in conflict with our Committed Relationships.

Mercury is in an exact conjunction with Uranus at 14 Aries (Cardinal-Fire), squaring Pluto at 14 Capricorn (Cardinal-Earth). This could bring unexpected information or insight into an issue or situation that has proved difficult.

Venus in Pisces (Mutable-Water), moves between Neptune and Chiron, providing love and support for our continued healing. Venus’ position is strong at this Lunation as she is exalted in Pisces and the ruler of this Lunar Eclipse. Venus is associated with many things, but above all she is LOVE and in Pisces her energy is inclusive and forgiving. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and together, there is much support at this Lunar Eclipse for Unconditional Love and Forgiveness.

This Lunar Eclipse mirrors the Lunar Eclipse in October 2013, what was happening  in your life then that is connected to what is happening in your life now?

This Lunar Eclipse is also the first in a series known as tetrad.

The action starts on April 15th when the full Moon passes through the amber shadow of Earth, producing a midnight eclipse visible across North America. So begins a lunar eclipse tetrad—a series of 4 consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six month intervals.  The total eclipse of April 15, 2014, will be followed by another on Oct. 8, 2014, and another on April 4, 2015, and another on Sept. 28 2015.

“The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA,” says longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak.

The Eclipse occurs around midnight on April 15th, Monday the 14th will be an intense day, as the Moon and Mercury make multiple aspects, and Pluto Stations Retrograde. Cooler heads will prevail.

As the Cardinal Grand Cross moves into exact position on April 21 & 22, we feel the energies amplify, emotions will be over the top, there will be many acting out their unconscious issues, anger, sadness, joy, and Love; remember we are Spiritual Beings in a time of great change, look to the Eagle and the Dove.

March 30, 2014 : Aries New Moon : CHANGES

Roller Coaster (OF LOVE)

We find ourselves in these last days of March 2014, already feeling the Transformative energies of the April Eclipse Season.

Roller Coasters are for the most part fun; twists and turns, stomach drops, heart-pounding, upside down, dizzying, corkscrew consciousness.Roller

This is how April will feel, only most of us won’t be at an amusement park.

Although, the hardest hit will be people with prominent middle degrees of the Cardinal signs, everyone will experience the energy of Transformation.

There is still the missing plane, a horrific mudslide in the state of Washington, and Russia continues to play out old world politics, with unwarranted aggression toward Ukraine. There are many who would prefer the way of control, domination, dictatorship, suppression. But the energies of Transformation are upon us and are more powerful than any earthly government or leader. There are many changes, some scary, some exciting, some good, and some not-so-good.

The key is to meet the challenges presented to us, with Grace, Love and Kindness, no matter what we are experiencing.

The Sabian Symbol for the NEW MOON on March 30, 2014:

(Aries 10) A TEACHER GIVES NEW SYMBOLIC FORMS TO TRADITIONAL IMAGES

[Keynote: Revision of attitude at the beginning of a new cycle of experience.]
(Rudhyar)

——————————————————————————————————————–

The New Moon is closely conjunct Uranus and the Asteroid Goddess Juno in the middle degrees of Aries (Cardinal-Fire). This fiery New Moon squares Jupiter at 12 Cancer (Cardinal-Water) and Pluto at 14 Capricorn (Cardinal-Earth). In the early hours of April 2, the Sun moves into an exact conjunction with Uranus; the days between March 30-April 2 will be intense.

As Juno is joined with Uranus at this New Moon, look for unexpected developments in relationships, particularly romantic partnerships; emotions will be over the top (Jupiter in Cancer), minds will change, what was over, may now have a second chance, those who thought everything was fine, may have their world turned upside down. Be prepared for ANYTHING TO HAPPEN.

Roller2Mercury is traveling through Pisces (Mutable-Water) and is close to Chiron, the Wounded Healer. There will be much communication of feelings (Mercury/Chiron trine Jupiter in Cancer) and processing painful situations which will ultimately lead to bringing forth and healing deeply buried wounds of the Heart.

Mars in Libra (Cardinal-Air) is retrograde, as is Saturn in Scorpio (Fixed-Water). Mars provokes action and Saturn builds structures, be it of body or mind; with these two retrograde, there is an odd feeling to the transformative energies. There is a great deal of forward motion, yet there is an unsettled quality, we are afraid to take that big step, it does not feel like the right moment and we hesitate. Venus in Aquarius (Fixed-Air) trines Mars and squares Saturn. There is action, but restricted in some way, there is opportunity, but the center may not hold, and the structures may crumble under the grind of Transformation.

April will prove to be a challenging month for ALL OF US, stay grounded and centered. Remember that we are ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, those of us aware, and those not-so aware; keep your wits about you, stay calm and trust that you can handle anything that comes your way.

Hang on-we are in for a wild ride this Eclipse Season. 

As always, Stay in Your Heart…

March 16, 2014: Virgo Full Moon: SERVICE

Fly, Fly Away

As the Sun joins Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, a plane goes missing over the sea, an apt image that exemplifies the Neptunian/Piscean energy of this lunar cycle. Mysterious, shrouded in secrecy, possible terrorism, possibly it was way off course when it disappeared from radar.

The smoke and mirrors continue in our government, it seems as though one of the biggest defenders of the NSA surveillance did not like it when her computers were spied on? Uranus/Pluto square continuing to bring to light what is hidden and obscured by the cloak and dagger antics of the CIA, yes Senator Feinstein, its always different when it happens to you…

The energies this month are strange, these are strange days, things don’t feel quite right, they, whoever they are keep telling us the economy is getting better, things are picking up, yet it does not feel this way…open your eyes and look around.

The dream of humanity, when are we going to wake up?  Caught up in the ego of materialism, things are more important than qualities…how it looks always more important than substance.

The Full Moon on March 16, 2014 mirrors the Full Moon of September 19, 2013. What was happening in your life then? And how does it relate to what is happening now?

Choices2

The Sabian Symbol for the FULL MOON on March 16, 2014
(Virgo 26) A BOY WITH A CENSER SERVES THE PRIEST NEAR THE ALTAR.

[Keynote: The first stage of actual participation in the great ritual of planetary evolution.]

He must learn to serve, humbly and with intense attention, in what as yet is beyond his spiritual understanding. He learns to perform every action superpersonally. He learns to PRACTICE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
(Rudhyar)
_____________________________________________________

As the Sabian Symbols are symbolic in essence, the priest and altar boy are metaphors for service, mindfulness; to know and understand on some level there is a presence in the universe much greater than ourselves, a presence so unfathomable, yet so subtle that to receive even the smallest glimpse, we must pay attention. We must be here, be present in all moments of our lives.

No matter where you and what you are doing, and no matter how small or insignificant the task: be conscious, be mindful, pay attention, be present.

The Sun in Pisces (Mutable-water) trines Saturn Rx in Scorpio (Fixed-water), providing us with emotional support from our network of friends and family. Unconditional Love is a wonderful gift, let us all aspire to this in all our endeavors. Let go of judgment and accept the flaws in ourselves and the ones we love. Move through the world with Grace and acceptance of all our encounters and with all those we come in contact with everyday.

True Service seeks no reward.

Mars Rx travels back through Libra (Cardinal-Air), and is joined by the North Node, Vesta, and Ceres (in early Scorpio), they are all retrograde. The Sun and Mars (and those traveling with him) form an inconjunct aspect, this means adjustments of some sort are in play. Where are we making adjustments in our life? Relationships? Partnerships? Jobs? Home?

Mercury is in direct motion moving through the late degrees of Aquarius (Fixed-Air) and at this Full Moon is in the 29th degree, a Karmic degree. Perhaps information will come to light at this Full Moon to change something important to us, or perhaps to all of us.

Venus, the LightBringer travels through Aquarius, filtering the Rays of the New Age, the Age of Brotherhood, Enlightenment, and Understanding that we are All One, we are all aspects of Love, in its many guises.

Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Cancer are forming a T-Square, and though not exact, the energies are still in play, and we are feeling the transformation.

This will be an intense Full Moon, a precursor of the intensely transformative energies that await in the April Eclipse Season.

Hold on and let go! It’s a paradox and a riddle, its life on Planet Earth!

As always, Stay in Your Heart…
