August Astro Weather : Leaving the Grind Behind

Screen Shot 2019-08-01 at 12.34.46 pm.png

 

Congratulations, its finally August! We are finishing up what felt like, the real time version of Survivor. June and July has been the most challenging Astrology of 2019 some would say ever, especially if you are Cardinal sign (Cancer, Capricorn, Libra or Aries). It was horrendous for some, lacklustre and depressing for others, if it didn’t touch you, well congratulation you are in the minority. But we are finally on the other side of it, from NOW – as the New Moon in Leo occurs, 1:13pm ASET.

August & September are exciting with innovative and creative problem solving, of the muck that was churned up in June / July, due to Jupiter and Uranus hitting stellium’s in Leo and Virgo. This IS positive as there is a feeling of control and freedom. Momentum and Joie de vie is back, August 10th Jupiter station direct after a 3 months retrograde, adding to the buoyant nature of the upcoming months.

October – November we keep plodding along the track, fresh off the highs of August and September. December, however, is when things get a bit tricky again. The beaming highs might drop like a thud as Jupiter enters Capricorn the sign of its fall, in early December, and we re-enter the eclipse season. Advise: Things are warming up from now until December, finally our Mojo’s are being rediscovered, with Jupiter in Sagittarius offering us 4 full months of his exulted ray beams of Mojo Love. It’s time to enjoy the Sunshine and follow anything that truly inspires our passions and joy. They don’t call Jupiter the higher Benefic for nothing ! Trust and Enjoy, the Sun is finally coming back out, we are leaving the grind behind !

Mercury Direct in Cancer -The Kick Inside

📸 Bjork by Mert Alas 
Within 24 hours after the Leo New Moon, Mercury Station’s direct, from the watery shadows of Cancer, opposed by an even more shadowy Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury has been delayed, obstructed and downright frustrated, creating an energetic atmosphere akin to sitting in a dark swap land, waiting for the bus to arrive, to take you far away from the drudgery, only to find out the bus route was on a slower timetable AND the Bus has broken down. Turns out, you got nothing but time to lament.
 
Movements & La Communication were stalled, redirected, non-existent and frustrating. This time around the messages seemed more intense and damn right confronting. With no real traction and generating no solid resolutions, since the beginning of July, possibly even late June. Set amongst the Eclipse mash ups in Cancer and Capricorn, it was an especially gnarly example of a Mercury Retrograde. Frustrating, complicated and fraught with emotions and expectations. Dwelling, detouring and following these Mercurial Bends and Twists, was the only clear option, whilst trying not to lose your shit.
 
This is changing August 2nd when Mercury stands still to begin its direct motion, clearing its original Station point on August 15th. The dwelling and la communication dis-illusion will be but a memory. The week following this, Mercury will trine Jupiter, its first positive aspect since its post retrograde phase. Creating clearer vision of what this whole Retrograde drudgery was about.
 
Currently, your striking your last match in a wet cave underground; you’re using all your will to ignite, watching the flame struggle for oxygen, after beating the damp flint at its own game, not knowing which way it is going to go, Ignites ! Finally there is a light to begin your navigation out of this underground cave, as Mercury begins to make its way to the light of August & Leo Season 🦁💥♌️🌈

Leo New Moon: Inflammāre

Screen Shot 2019-07-29 at 1.00.50 pm.png
📸Jamon Jamon 🎞👌❤️ 

The Leo New Moon on August 1st @ 1312 (ASET) is our official slamming shut of the Eclipse window which has occupied June & July’s Skyscape.   The Eclipse Season, plus the pile up of Planets on the Cancer Capricorn Axis, which focused heavily on the consequences of ignoring in-balances of Private and Public Spheres, was grinding to say the least. Nourishment & Emotional Needs vs Requirements and Pressures from External forces, in order to keep up with the functions of Societies rigid frameworks and expectations; making the past 2 months feel like a slow soft boil set to constant. 🍳The Leo New Moon is when we see that slow cook finally turned off.

As we move into August, where 3 of the 4 personal planets transit Leo and make positive aspects to Jupiter in Sagittarius, allows a restoration of faith and optimism, that Jupiter in Sadge always brings.  His aspects to the Sun, Mercury, Venus & Mars who are in need of Jupiter’s restorative rays are well timed considering the heavy storms created by June & Julys Astro-weather.  This Leo New Moon really gets this process going, helping shift the focus FROM heavy emotional and hard to move out of thoughts and feelings (thanks Mercury Rx in Cancer), DELIVERING us to a place of conviction to move past the issues that have been nabbing us at our heels for the past 2 months. The New Moon in Leo is the start point – from  where we finally get to survey our newly formed Lands and Kingdoms from above, inspiring the creative and stoking the fires of what possibilities await.  Finally the wet wood is drying out and this New Moon allows us to gently and safely gets us stoking and burning the Fires again. We are finally getting moving again ! ♌️🌚❤️👌🚗🦁🐣🙌🏽 🌈⚡️www.thebrujamix.com ⚡️

Sun in Leo – Return of the King

thumbnail-1.jpeg

Happy Sun into Leo, as of like now ! The Sun finally reaches its domicile, home or sign of its Rulership. It is now that we can begin to feel our way out of the abyss, that we have felt stranded in over the past 2 months.

The Sun’s ingress into Leo today, begins this process … but the full fruits of this shift will not begin until the New Moon in Leo, August 1st AEST….The New Moon in Leo our first non-eclipsed Lunation since June 3rd. How much has changed or shifted since June 3rd ?!!

The Sun’s shift in to Leo today, we can begin to see the fruits of our time alone in the abyss as things become clearer, or optimistic.  With this shift into Leo season, as The Sun & other planets transit Leo, it  also marks the beginnings of positive aspects to Jupiter in Sagittarius, good time guru and wise teacher, finally gets to have some positive help after 2 months of Planetary bodies being caught up in the Doom Clutters of Pluto & Saturn in Capricorn entangled with the Moons Nodes.

The Sun’s ingress into Leo is the first shafts of light, presenting  this new paradigm, finally the pressure is beginning to subside, and its start point is literally NOW 🤗💥❤️🌞♌️🦁

Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn – Relating to Relations

The Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn tomorrow is conjoined Saturn, our keeper of lessons, the master of restriction and it will oppose Venus; the bringer of joy and cohesive Relationships, in Cancer. This eclipse on the South Node is allowing the release of old ideas around relationships, while opening a space for new formations, as the South Node has a purging effect on the planets its aspects.

Saturn conjoined the South Node, means these may be long standing patterns that are plum ripe to be let go of.  Self – limiting mindsets around relationships, have a helping hand in being let go of, as this Cancer / Capricorn Axis is activated fully for the first time in this eclipse series.  Eclipses ARE the gateways of change.

Cancer and Capricorn speaks to the see-sawing around nourishment, person comforts, protection and space VS the need to exert oneself into the world, in an attempt to be seen with a long list accomplishment, no matter what the barriers.  Cancer doesn’t always feel comfortable in propelling its self into the world to be exposed and vulnerable,  whereas Capricorn isn’t always able to see that looking after one’s self or the care of those they hold the nearest and dearest; can be of more value than Status, Power or Money it chases. This is the sea-saw motion being navigated by tomorrow eclipse, with Venus and Saturn being drawn into the mix allowing for a purging of Old Value Systems around Relationships and Power, between yourself and the environments you seek to climb. Some very old stories might be dredged up at this Eclipse. It’s time to restore the balance if it has become uneven, or to let go of the stuff that is blocking the path forward. Where do you need to open yourself up more?

Venus isn’t having the best time opposing the South Node, Pluto and Saturn.  However, post eclipse, allows for a fire purging of Venus, burning off the residual of all that is trying to constrain her momentum forward.  This Post Eclipse burn off, when Venus is meeting the Sun then opposing Pluto, is a road she must travel to revitalise and purge allowing her to make the most of the new cycle, which awaits. Saturn which always limits and controls, will be asked by the Moon & The South Node, to delved deep into emotional waters, to separate and strip what is not needed in this new phase and what has been out grown and superfluous.  The South Node/Saturn conjunction last longer than the actual eclipse. But tomorrows eclipse speeds up the urgency and blocks out the light to allow the purging and releasing to take place,  as we make our way to an exciting and contrasting Leo Season ❤️💫🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕💥www.thebrujamix.com

Full Moon in Sagittarius – Moving from Water to Fire & Ice

Screen Shot 2019-06-15 at 11.09.28 am.png

♐️🌝⚡️The Full Moon In Sagittarius, occurs on Monday 17th of June AEST. The Full Moon will make a tight aspect to Jupiter, generally creates a pleasant and upbeat experience. This Full Moon is a wonderful respite from the Emotive swirl of the current Grand Water Trine, created by the current Moon in Scorpio, Mars/Mercury/NN in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces.

The Sadge Full Moon dry’s out any emotional residue left from the Scorpio Moon, Creating Optimism, Big Picture Visionscapes, Enjoyment and Buoyancy …Jupiter will add conviction to these ideas, before the Moon Shifts Into Capricorn on June 18th, activating “doom cluster” on the Cancer Capricorn axis. Which will raise questions around what needs to be let go of (as the moon begins to wane) to create the visions and ideals of the Moons peak Fullness.

Enjoy the Reprieve of The Moon in Sadge & Jupiter – its going to be a wonderful shift from all this Water energy dominating the current landscape. The Full Moon in Sadge will be a great day for rituals around Gains, Expansion and Creating Big Picture Plans, around the more difficult terrain that sits either side of it ! Enjoy the Transition from Water to Fire and Ice ❤️⭐️🌞🌝♐️🔥 #thebrujamix #astroweather #fullmooninsagittarius #moonconjunctjupiter #2019astrology #fireandice

June & July 2019: Wielding Fortitude

Solar Eclipse: 3 July in Cancer 05:15 AEST @ 10°

Lunar Eclipse: 17 July in Capricorn 07:38 AEST @ 24°

Mars in Cancer: 17 May – 2nd July (Challenging aspects from 11 June onwards)

Mercury Retrograde: 8th of July (S RX) – 1st of August (Station Direct) 16 August (out of the retrograde degree.)

 

 

 

The Solstice annually marks the beginnings of the Sun’s movements through The Cancer & Capricorn Axis points. Cancer and Capricorn are signs that mark the greatest imbalance of Light and Dark, no matter what sphere you live in. Reflecting the extremes of the light and dark in the physical world as we know it.

Since the ingress of the Moon’s Nodes, the Eclipse points, or Rahu & Ketu into the signs of Cancer and Capricorn (Nov 2018 – July 2020) this axis point has become a more sensitive and accelerated area for growth, and modification.  These are points of change and create a deep push pull effect, working through deep and sensitive plot points of one’s life.  The Eclipses of 2019 take place in Capricorn and Cancer. Meaning if you have any planets in Cardinal Signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn – you will be more directly affected. Planets in Capricorn or Cancer are directly being moulded, modified or purified. Planets in Libra and Aries are being affected by reverbs of these Cancer and Capricorn symphonic clashes.

Capricorn currently has a longer, slower, deeper and at times invisible story unfolding, with the 15-year transit of Pluto through it sign, creating situations and experience of deep modification to the areas of life, that Capricorn planets or points the sign rules over, in one’s birth chart. Pluto transit’s in duration are the longest and slowest of the Zodiac, as well as being the deepest and at times confronting and arduous. Any planets or points that Pluto hit, are hijacked for plutonic redress.

Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn is halfway through its transit of its home sign, making Saturn especially dignified and strong in its current restructuring and Strength testing, of   all that sits in the Capricorn realm.  Since December 2017 this has been working in direct connection with Pluto in Capricorn, by first sign and then aspect. It is creeping closer to conjunction in January 2020. Saturn is challenging the strength of ideas and concepts that are being build or trying to come to fruition, through day by day labouring.  Pluto and Saturn are industrial purging and structural change agents. Since November 2018, Pluto and Saturn have had Ketu or the South Node join the industrial party.  Pluto and Saturn are currently working towards a conjunction in 2020, in Capricorn. The last time this occurred was 1982, at the height of the Cold War, and the rise of Neo Liberalism in Western Government Policy. Saturn Pluto is seen as drastic times of economic change and conflict. More on this cycle in another post.

Ketu or the dragon’s tail is a purging and detoxifying energy. Ketu is pushing for release of things that are not essential or spiritually aligned to the planets or areas of life, its transiting. Ketu is directly affecting the Capricorn, area and placements.  Ketu is joining and working with Pluto / Saturn and is creating an intensified experience. The Pluto Saturn and Ketu transits are catalyst of change pushing you to purify the grounds and environments your seeking to master or conquer.

Capricorn experiences are anything that is slow, and an area of life which reaches maturation over a long period of time. Capricorn energy is about things that you believe are solid, and sure footed.  This solidity allows for feeding of, and creation of gains and overall reward after sacrifice and hard work. But what Pluto and Ketu are doing is adding 2 almost invisible layers of disruption, testing, to see if these structures are truly aligned with you and your forward momentum to the top of the proverbial mountain. Why climb to the top of a dormant or landslide prone mountain? The current planetary transits are testing this sure footedness. This energy will begin to separate by late October, once Ketu clears from its separation from Saturn.

In the Cancer corner, Cancer the only Cardinal Sign in Water.  It is emotional source energy, protected and hidden way by a Crab shell, a tough front, water is hidden away behind strong barriers.  Cancer is the opposite sign of Capricorn. Cancer energy is strong, intuitive, protective, nurturing and sweetness fortified by a protective armour. Once it allows you into the sphere, this is when Cancer energy can really be worked with and enjoyed. Cancer like Capricorn is hard yin.  Where you have Cancer in your chart, is where, what you most treasure is tucked away, protected from the storms, protecting the source of emotion and intuition.  Cancer energy is like a precious spring well, an individual keep hidden away, until trust has been gained, to share the source.

Cancer, has been experiencing Saturn and Pluto from its opposite sign, challenging this protective method. Meaning any planets or areas of life that are in the sign of Cancer have had this constant stress, purification, change, strength testing around its Source energy, for a few years now. The 2020 conjunction will directly affect Cancer planets and points. Putting real pressure on keeping its Water Wells, clean and protected, in the face of constant challenge from its opposing sign Capricorn.

Rahu or The North Node has been transiting Cancer since November 2018. Rahu, like Ketu, they are direct opposites, they operate together, by moving together as constant opposites. Rahu brings a new dynamic to the Cancer Sphere. Where Ketu detox’s or purges, Rahu devours and is hungry, and constantly consumes, like hungry ghost energy.  Eclipses were thought to be an animal devouring the Sun, Rahu energy, is the devourer of the Sun and Moon. Rahu has an endless hunger and consumption, without proper ability to digest, or nurture being the bi-product of this endless consumption. Rahu can push you into areas or can provide opportunities to change and evolve, however, Ketu must also be brought into the equation. As they balance each other. Like a good food diet – the Nodes are constantly balancing consumption and processing. Managing their push pull is complex is part of the astrological process of June and July. Rahu and Ketu don’t necessary do this on their own naturally. It is through awareness, that mastery of the Rahu and Ketu can begin.

This June and July, we see Mars and Mercury transit Cancer, acting as triggers and accelerating by applying fast acting pressure to these longer-term transits highlighted above. This is creating the volatile environment of June and July. Mars & Mercury will be putting lots of pressure on to the deeper and darkest corners. June and July have great potential to create tension, explosions or confrontation. There will be challenges and questions about the roads we are currently on, especially around, Status, Family, Ancestry, Rooting, Home and Building for the Future.

Mars is in its Fall in Cancer, Mars and Cancer are not comfortable bed fellows. Mars is fast, aggressive, reactionary, Yang Fire. Cancer is slower, more cautious, protective, Yin Water. Mars entered Cancer on May 17thbut by June 11th we see Mars begin to activate Saturn, Pluto and The Nodes, by opposition and conjunction. Mars is setting the frame work for a very active Solstice period.  Mars is very much the aggressor of this situation. Being in its sign of its fall, it doesn’t operate as it should. Mars in Cancer can see explosions of pent up and emotional anger or aggression. Rahu and Ketu can add, a deeper level of repressed emotional trauma or ancestral trauma. Saturn and Pluto – also speak to this concept of clearing out deep emotional trauma leading the way to better foundations or reconciliation.

Mars transiting Cancer,sees a match stick being raised and set. Not allowing Mars to burn off the deadwood, in a wet environment, is where trouble could be caused. This contrary situation (Water and Fire) means Mars WILL find other outlets to do its job, if the steam isn’t let off. The outcome might become more explosive than needed or required. So, if things do heat up, don’t smother them, the aim is to control the fire (like a planned burn off) rather than avoiding the fire, because you wanted to hold on to the dead wood. Mars is tricky this month, work with it.

Mercury will come to play as it enters Cancer on June 5th, Mercury is naturally fast and is a problem solver whose speed and rational brings intellectual smarts to the table. However, Mercury begins to slow down in June and turns Retrograde July 8th, beginning its retrograde cycle in Leo/Cancer.  This Mercury retrograde, timed perfectly after Mars’ transit of Cancer, activating all the sticky points of the chart, really speaks to the 3-fold effect which is building around this time frame and the purging and re-visioning of our Capricorn / Cancer axis of our lives. Mercury Retrograde is here to focus down on and deeply integrate the fireworks or steam lead off during the Mars transit in Cancer.

Mercury’s Retrograde adds to this entanglement by slowing down, and stalling where smart ideas or quick intellect would usually over ride to alter a situation. Where Mercury would deliver inspired thought or problem solving, this retrograde will add extra pressure to an already pressurize astrological frame work.  Events as they unfold will have the longer-term benefit of the Mercurial trickster, moving over these points for a 3-fold breakdown or chapter developments. But the overall feel of this will be of slow and arduous, for limited immediate resolve, in June & July.

Finally, the 3rd and final act in this triple whammy of faster transitory triggers is the actual Eclipses of the Cancer / Capricorn axis.  Eclipses are formed when the Nodal access points (Rahu and Ketu), intercept the orbits of the Sun, Moon and Earth. Creating Eclipses. Eclipses are times of quickening and are turbo charged Full and New Moon Lunations. Eclipse energy is tricky and it’s not a great time for any form of divination, let alone clarity.  The Sun and Moon are blocked, unseen forces are at play, Eclipse times are times for rest and letting things play out.

July 2019 has 2 Eclipses, a Solar & Lunar Eclipse. These will be occurring at the New Moon in Cancer & Full Moon in Capricorn. The effects of these eclipses can last until the next non eclipsed lunation or until the next eclipse in this axis series. IF you have any planets in Capricorn or Cancer, aspecting these Eclipses, these Planets will feel the effect more strongly in your chart than if you don’t, have any planets in aspect. Generally, Eclipses are just strange times, and general caution should be applied.

Overall, there is ALOT going on over the next 2 months, with much of it feeding into the larger 2020 astrological story. Eclipse wise June and July will hark back to December 2018 / January 2019. The next 2 months will have a more notable strength to it with the Mars transit of Cancer and the Mercury Retrograde that begins to unfold in July.

The overwhelming story of these transits is to be gentle and commit to processing or going with whatever pops up. Repressing it, fighting it, ignoring it or not confronting it will be hugely problematic under the above astrology, and inflammation likely, due to   the Mars in Cancer element. Being active rather than reactive or defensive is a good way of dealing with such conflicting energy. It may feel like it is dragging on, or not developing, but the good news is come August / September, things will be in a much better shape and there will be a much stronger platform to launch from. Just don’t let Mars in Cancer make you, come up a cropper! and be careful of the webs you weave during June & July.

Uranus in Taurus: Unexpected Awakenings

Screen Shot 2019-03-05 at 10.30.37 am

Uranus in Taurus :  6 March 2019 – 26 April 2026

Within 24 hours of The New Moon & Mercury Retrograde, in Pisces, Uranus makes its  ingress into Taurus on March 6, augmenting the final outer planet shift, establishing the dominant earth vibe which is traveling with us till the mid 2020’s.

Uranus, the great awakener moving into the fixed earth of Taurus, is a volatile meeting of two energies from opposite sides of the spectrum. Uranus, a mover and shaker whose main objective is to destabilise, in order to innovate. Taurus is a slow mover and lacks a desire to change. During this transit, Taurus will be required to move from its sometimes, entrenched space into something more flexible and innovative. Taurus is the most fixed of the 3 fixed signs, is about to be awoken from its slumber.

Like all outer planet transits, Uranus in Taurus will be affecting people on both a macro and micro scale, with the changes that develop over the next 7 years, revolutionising both our lives and society. The last time Uranus was in Taurus we saw, The Great Depression (changes in money value and food scarcity), The rise and outbreak of World War 2 (fixed values and ideas, creating destabilizing politics and world conflict, created by extremist values), Women joining the work force due to the War ( revolutionizing the work environment forever) and the changing of food and food staples (due to war and technological advances), which began the mechanize food production. i.e. the chocolate cookie being invented during the last transit.

The past reflects, Uranus in Taurus being a cycle of large financial change in domestic and globally money trades. The current over valuation of the housing market and luxury items are an obvious place to look to, for this upcoming cycle. The evidence of this financial correction has been speculated, with the effects already being felt as we move towards the actual ingress. This is just the beginning of the corrections of housing values.  Climate change (Taurus being an earth sign) also will have its hand in influencing this correction. Erosion for coastal property, flooding and fires, with the problem of what happens when your property becomes uninsurable against natural disaster. How does that affect most people’s greatest asset.

On the eve of the ingress we are currently experiencing Brexit, overspendature on a personal and government levels in many western economies, an over dependance on single economies ie: China, Trade Wars and a pretty damning royal commission into the Banking Industry in Australia. We are tittering on the brink, with Uranus in Taurus being part of the catalysis of change.

We are already seeing signs pin pointing to the revolutionizing of money and how we use it. Governments and Corporations are focused on cashless societies, where money is physically no longer carried, but simply numbers on a phone or screen. Never in human history have we lived without a physical money source for barter and exchange. Large cash deposits/withdraws are being scrutinized more, clamping down on cash business trade. The antithesis of this is also being concurrently explored. Bit Coin and other crypto currencies, being created and developed expanding the tools and trade, creating a new value system which allows autonomy from government and banks. These are all reflective of our changing relationship with money in the most physical sense.  How we earn money through work is also rapidly changing. With the concept of having a job for life, now just a memory of a bygone era.

Beauty and Value, attributes of the Venus Rulership of Taurus, are two obvious areas to explore for Uranian revolutions.  The unprecedented rise in selfie culture is a Uranus in Aries manifestation of the “Me” of Aries. The over indulgence and over stimulation of posting vacuous selfie images, is seeing more people seeking to switch off from social media accounts, or at least being more discerning, over what they view and engage with. The overuse of app filters is now seeing the introduction of body dysmorphia created by filters on social media apps. Creating a psychological and physical impact on our body and beauty standards. This increase in demand is fuelling the cosmetic surgery industry to service new demands for people wanting to look more like their Instagram filter self.

The tide is shifting with this social media impact as we enter Uranus in Taurus, and we are begin to see rebellion. The damage such cosmetic products have on our bodies, will be revealed more during this transit, as these treatments are historically untested and our bodies. After all, smoking was a healthy and safe with no impact on the body, once upon a time, wasn’t it ! As we move into this new cycle young people are switching off social media, for a natural and less ‘targeted’ interaction with people and information, as well as having a closer connection to their environments. This is phase is just beginning. It will be interesting to see where our Instagram influencers are at in 7 years’ time, and what the ACTUAL impact of Botox and plastic surgery has on young bodies.

Food, is also a Taurus theme already turning its hand to innovation and pioneering change. Veganism, and alternative food sourcing are increasing due to over population, climate change and food ethics (values), these influences, along side our more sedentary lifestyle is making us “have” to change the way we eat. Mother earth can no longer provide for us, as our populations spirals out of control.

As we enter Uranus in Taurus, we are seeing new directions for food production and consumption. Lab grown or plant-based meats are being researched and developed. With the look and taste of meat, but with-out the need to factory farm or kill animals. Imagine if Uranus in Taurus stopped us killing bulls for food !

3D printing has been suggested as a potential area of food development, with short falls of food in situations of famine or crop failures. Veganism and Vegetarianism has never been so popular, with expectations that demand will keep rising for it. I would expect large changes in the way we farm and source our food over the next 7 years.  We are just entering this cycle, it will be interesting to look back in 7 year’s time to see how much our food source have changed and developed. Food is well on its way to being revolutionized, with some real progress expected as we enter this new Uranian cycle.

Astrology is the study of cycles, and with Uranus in Taurus we are witnessing a birthing of a new era around, food, money, wealth and beauty. History has shown us how potent,   the Uranus in Taurus transits can be. To get a head start, the best strategy is to be open for change, in the above and below areas of life. Minimizing and clearing as much debt as possible is also essential for this new earth era.  Also look to last years preview when Uranus went into Taurus – 16 May – Nov 2018 to see what and  where you will see Uranus’s seeds of innovation crack open for the next 7 years, creating more freedom and choice (Uranus) to health, finances and personal values (Taurus).

Uranus in Taurus – Through the Signs

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.17 pmTaurus, Uranus in your sign will see these mini revolutions occur in the way you present and show up in the world. There is much room for upgrading over the next 7 years, try to make the most of it by being open to change when the opportunity presents itself. Any resistance can lead to lessons or upgrades occurring in a harder fashion. Every facet of your being is evolving, by 2026 – the world will be presented with a more streamlined and progressive you.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.29 pmGemini, the revolt will be occurring in your most inner and private sanctum. You will be re-evaluating your worth from a subconscious level, with most of these upgrades occurring from a more hidden or secret realms of your life. Issues to do with worth, investment and value will be changing at the inner most place of your psyche. This is setting you up for when Uranus shifts into Gemini in 2026. Setting you up for quite the entrance. Anything that eats into your psychological space, will be freed and liberated over the next 7 years. The catch is, these are generally things you don’t want to look at.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.37 pmCancer, innovation and change will be occurring around communities and groups you involve yourself in. How you engage with them, their importance in your life and the shift of who these people are and how they value you, is where this electric energy will be directed. There could be a shift in your placement within your groupings and associations. With the end game being that you are getting the values and validation you deserve, you also learn the value of who deserve it. No more nurturing the wrong apple trees. Remember other people or groups don’t set your worth, you do.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.49 pmLeo, your Career, Status and Authority is looking to be radically shook up. This isn’t the end of the world, dooms day forecasting. This is you making structural changes that allow you to be of greater service, in exchange for more freedom and liberation in the Career realms. You are able to innovate your way for greater acclaim and value allowing you to be more effective in letting your passions and creativity shine. It might feel strange at first, but this is all about you getting greater autonomy over you life.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.07 pmVirgo’s love to really pull apart a subject and get to know the details and contents well. This transit will be occurring in your travel and higher learning sectors. The paths or how you get to the topic of learning might be erratic and surprising, but there is greater learnings and lessons around the synchronicity or spontaneous way that opportunities to explore such subjects will be discovered and explored. A little more adaptable than your earth cousin Taurus, you might not naturally be inclined to be so spontaneous, but your adaptability and fluid nature means you will naturally find your feet in this new “earth” terrain. Say yes to travel and study, to help broaden your scope.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.13 pmLibra, Uranus in Taurus, will be creating a bit of volatility and change around your relationships with other people’s money, or money that is not yours. i.e.: Taxes, Loans, Debts, inheritance. Be mindful of this as you step into this new earth era. Ideas  to gain such money, might not be as straight forward to action as initially thought, or there might be more unexpected requirements. Old access to external money sources may disappear. This is all tied to the bigger cycles that are occurring in the world around you. Don’t fret, this is about improving and eventual freedom and liberation from old debts. But from the introduction of this transit, other peoples money should be seen as being in flux, this includes your partners money. Debt reduction is essential.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.23 pmScorpio, your relationships with other people, both work and personal, will be activated during this 7 years transit in your opposing sign. Do you value them ? Do they value you ? What role do you play in all this upheavel ? There is a change in the exchange of your relationships, which might feel erratic or surprisingly different. This is all about sorting the snakes from the woodpile, as well as looking at your influence within this dynamic. If the earth does shift around your nearest and dearest, its fundamental role is to create an environment in which your relationships become of greater value to both sides. Don’t look away, if ignored, it will just keep presenting in different and more confrontational ways.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.29 pmSagittarius, the Body, Health and Day to Day routines is where you will be seeing mini revolutions occurring in your life. What you eat, how you exercise, if you exercise and maximizing your day will be how this Uranian energy will be reflected in your daily life. Remember, there isn’t a choice in this, so any changes to the above will help you in the long run. Health is the New Wealth, use it or lose it.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.38 pmCapricorn’s will see changes in and around their creative life, with the end game being things you truly love and inspire being brought forward and centre stage into your life. There can be many excuses as to why creative activities or creating a life you truly love, has been put to the side, to be worked on ‘later’.  Life is short – Uranus in Taurus is all about shaking solid ground. The focus will be on,  being pro active in bringing things you truly love and creativity centre stage. Do this  before events conspire forcing you to see; why doing what you love and valuing creativity is the ONLY way, to truly live an inspired life. Capricorn’s don’t have to be all business, and its a fallacy that they are all workaholics. Uranus in Taurus has come along to prove it, bringing it to the forefront.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.47 pmAquarius , your life will see some shake ups around your home environments, housing and real estate as well as potentially your literal ancestry. Uranus shaking earth, can create some deep tremors. Be sure of the ground you physically live on, don’t over extend to get your dream home. Remembering to live within your means IS a liberating experience. Reducing as much household debt is a must. Your never shy to think outside the box, remember, the energy you are working with is more conservative, and volatile. Valuing your family and their input into where they have gotten you to thus far, is also a side effect of this transit, creating greater freedom, to step forwards on your own journey.

Uranus in Taurus may require you to have more grounded and separating techniques to operate from. There maybe more of a need to assess and value the separation of feelings, thought and words. Looking at it in another way, anyone who was wishing to creatively communicate for work or pleasure, might find the internet, self publishing and new avenues of communication via technology an area of freedom and liberation. Allowing Pisces to create new visions to share with the world.  Either way your communication is what is being evolved and innovated over the next 7 years. Relationships with siblings is also changing.

Valuing your time, money, income will see you re-assess and look to new methods for income. Self Value comes into the mix, after having 8 years of Uranus in your sign, you know what its like to have your identity and perceptions of how you want to be in this world shift and change unexpectedly. Remember how you value yourself and how you generate your income, are linked.  Over the next 7 years, circumstances may feel like they are conspiring,  but they are allowing you to get onto another track, the things that might throw you, is that things that you always expected to be a given are no longer so. Reducing debt is essental.

Mercury’s Retrograde could trigger some genius, creative or artistic endeavours. Mercury meeting Neptune, is a three-act play dominating the month. Be guided by the increased strength of your Intuition, and let things play out before deciding on any outcome. Chiron, leaving Pisces after 8 years, adds to the feeling of catharsis this month.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 3.12.48 pmAries : Uranus has been a disruptive, yet liberating influence in your life since 2011. Its shift into Taurus on 7th of March, releases that unpredictable under- current.  Its immediate replacement Chiron looks deeper into the cracks created by Uranus. Presenting an opportunity to tend and nourish the areas of life that Uranus’ volatility disrupted. Uranus was the shaker and liberator, Chiron is the healing ointment.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.17 pmTaurus: Uranus is moving into Taurus, after 84 years. Taurus and Uranus aren’t the most comfortable bedfellows. Uranus creates opportunities; to modify, update & liberate. Giving freedom to outdated modes and systems around things you truly value. March is the introduction. The Mercury Retrograde is highlighting either a deeper connection to friendships or social groups OR dishonesty. Its either or, no in-between.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.29 pmGemini : Mercury Retrograde this month, will be quite the weirding, stirring up possible questions or miss-understandings around your Ambitions or Career. Understand this is a phase, where a lack of clarity around the big picture is emphasised. Play to your strengths of mercurial problem solving as situations arise. Gemini is one of the few signs who can work well in this framework. Mercury connecting with Neptune possible side effect: Inspiration and Creativity runs thick and fast this month.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.37 pmCancer: It’s time to regroup and re-evaluate. The new eclipse cycle in Cancer offers you evolution at warp speed in July. March is prep and rest time for then.  Nothing is out of reach, those born 15 – 19thof July, the opportunity or realisation will be upon you in March. Intuition is also strong, thanks to the Mercury Retrograde. Traveling? Surprises or changes along the way are part of the March tapestry. Work WITH it, no matter how frustrating.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.57.49 pmLeo: March allows you to step forward with new found wisdom, strength and assuredness, after 18 months of eclipses. Mercury Retrograde indicates, now is not the time to start any debt or investments involving others and or their resources. Caution is to be advised. If something pops up and seems too good to be true, it might well be. Wait for the dust to settle from Uranus’s shift and Mercury direct. If you can’t avoid delaying acts already in progress, the remedy is to fine toothcomb everything, more than once. 

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.07 pmVirgo : Working with Mercury Retrograde can be frustrating. Use your natural skills of analysis and discernment as Partnership, Public and Private are in flux this month, thanks to the retrograde. Triple check details, written and verbal. If Slippery people arise, involve extreme caution, more is revealed as the month progresses.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.13 pmLibra : March presents the opportunity to bring back creative expression to your daily routines. Explore activities that communicate joy and good aesthetics, it helps distract from the lost emails or lack of clarity at Work this month. Full Moon in Libra on March 21st is your personal Six Month Audit. Celebrate the achievements, weed what has become outdated. 

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.23 pmScorpio: Scorpio’s don’t have an aversion to change, they just prefer it to be on their terms. The introduction of Uranus into the landscape alters methods & timings. Like Taurus; your entering a new 8-year cycle. The gains far out-weigh the perceived losses. Be ready. Any Love interests who spring up in March are not straight-forward. Thanks to Mercury Retrograde your intuition is strong, use it.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.29 pmSagittarius: Mercury Retrograde, connects with your Ruler Jupiter and Neptune. The Conversation is about the expansion or optimism of Self and how it works along-side the setting of Home, Housing, Ancestors, or Family.  Mercury retrograde is the bridge between the two. Processing now, action later.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.38 pmCapricorn: In March, Mars slows down bringing things to a more manageable pace. This helps make Capricorn’s active, productive, agile and on game. Wait till April for any kind of emotional investment, in new people. Illusions will be strong, which is good for creative fields, not so much for rushing into alliance or long lasting relationships, outside of this. Let people reveal themselves first.

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 2.58.47 pmAquarius : 2ndMarch, Venus enters Aquarius for a month. After 18 months of non- stop Eclipse action, Venus reminds you to connect with things that encourage nourishment and relaxation. March is the perfect opportunity to for a retreat. The only catch. Mercury retrograde in your Money sector means don’t be delusional on financial cost of these luxuries. Simple is just as effective. 

Mercury Retrograde in Pisces: Tales from The Omniverse

“All you need is faith, trust and a little bit of pixie dust” Peter Pan

Mercury entered Pisces on February 11th, for its annual tour through the 12 sign of the zodiac.  Usually its a 14 day jaunt through a sign, but for 2019  Mercury will be settling into Pisces for just over 2 months,  thanks to its upcoming retrograde.

2019 will see the Mercury retrograde’s occurring predominantly in Water signs, with Pisces being the first expression of these transits. The Water element gives the Mercury retrogrades of 2019 a more emotive and internal quality, which differs from recent years.

Mercury being in its fall in Pisces means clarity and logic are 2 things which fall to the wayside, when Mercury transit’s the last sign of the zodiac.  Mercury desires clarity, it loves operating from a space of understanding and rational to help negotiate day-to-day life. Instead Mercury will be navigating a blurred and muddy territory, for a more creative or lucid atmosphere. This is not Mercury’s natural inclination, or something it enjoys doing, but when in Pisces, its made to work within the Piscean realm.

Pisces is a sign of expansive knowing and unknowing.  Of which the space for change, mutation and contradiction is strong, and at times overwhelming. Pisces is intuitive and unstructured, in the way Mercury likes structure, rational and pace.  Pisces is all about communicating in non-traditional ways; dream interpretation, poetry, music or visceral awareness. These two have an Oil and Water effect when they meet. Our job is to allow them to express, rather than try to repress, their attempts for refining the process by throwing away the normal protocols.

Neptune being involved adds to the destabilizing effects on Mercury.  Neptune blurs the edges more, operating from the subconscious, or unseen realms.   Mercury will cross and station direct on Neptune (19 Feb,  25th March – 3 April). Meaning mercury will be subject to strange bendings as he chases Alice down the Rabbit hole creating an almost parallel universe of messages, inspirations and whispers due to this Neptunian influence. Helping to create a dynamic and memorable Mercury Retrograde.

Jupiter squares Mercury during this retrograde phase. (23 Feb, 16 March, 12 April as Jupiter stations retrograde). Neptune helps create the vision, Jupiter then steps in to expand it. Jupiter is giving the big picture view to an idea or vision that was seeded, via the Neptune conjunctions. One planet is inspiring the mercurial, then the other planet is expanding the mercurial with faith, optimism and a big picture approach. This is very dynamic and mysterious transit, but what can be procured from it, is limitless, especially considering that Jupiter also rules Pisces.

Understand that messages don’t have to come through in a clear and logical way. Messages that are hidden, half developed or fractals of ideas  ARE ready to be formed and developed, ARE more powerful and liberating. This is what this transit is really speaking too. It’s a great time for exploration and (un)conscious raising. Why ? Because Pisces energy is not afraid to blur boundaries and try untested ideas with faith and optimism, whist trying its best to reconcile the oppositions for cohesion.

This March retrograde occurs within 2 days of Uranus’ ingress into Taurus and Chiron having just shifting in Aries. Mercury Retro in Pisces adds another important layer to the shifting sands and allows an opportunity to dig deeper into feeling into what these larger   Astrological shifts may mean for you.

Through the Houses

Pisces / Pisces Rising – Finally people might begin to understand some of the wonderful traits you weave through out being, and into life, which you don’t always reveal. Be yourself and use your intuition to remove those who are not aligned for your highest and best. Intuition its super strong right now. Don’t placate those whose don’t jive with this energy, they would never respect or understand your multifaceted talents, so why go there ? Be connected and enjoy those who do ! You might find you yourself more  articulate during this retrograde.

Aries / Aries Rising – Your dreams and subconscious will be activated, clearing out all the debris post Uranus in Aries. This will allow you to see where you stand after 8 years of fighting for your  freedom and innovative new goals within your life. What lies beneath will be fighting for attention to come to the surface this retro. recognised it, Clear it ! This is your first month with out Uranus in your sign in 8 years. It IS a new dawn.  Your subconscious will be purging.

Taurus / Taurus Rising – Friends and your wider community will be harder to pin down or there may be issues with commitment around locking in agendas, or perhaps that’s just the general vibe your feeling. Any signs of people being dis-ingenious could be worth noting.  Monitor it, by April it will be clear to you, if they should remain on the invite list.  Groups or activities around the piscean themes would be good to explore. Water based activities, flotation tanks, meditation, beach walks or any activity that allows you to bring your shadow / unconscious in closer contact to your consciousness.

Gemini / Gemini Rising – If anyone was born to ride this wave of contradiction and change in your career and around public image, its you Gemini. Don’t get caught up in the logic or the reasoning, just know things will change and evolve and go with it. Any career or work related to Art, Creativity and Writing is strong right now ! Delve into it. Social Climbing can come later when Mercury is direct, because there might be promises they can’t  be live up too.

Cancer / Cancer Rising – A great time to do any study or learning around any of the higher arts or any teachings that activates your desire to learn ! Courses, teachers, resources might come to your aid, that really take the education side of this subject next level. Travel plans during this retrograde, might get a bit sticky. Just go with it, and make sure you check all the admin every step of the way. Don’t assume its all in order with regards to travel plans. It will make an ass out of you and me.

Leo / Leo Rising – Do not go into any debt, shared money or investments at this time, you don’t have the full facts or picture. The devil is in the details and this month, all details are skewed and changeable. Reading about UFO’s or any other unexplained paranormal or esoteric (i.e.: Hidden) facts or situations are far more fruitful than business at this time. Just enjoy the carpet ride and do big business invests once we are into April.

Virgo / Virgo Rising – Relations both Personal and Professional are unclear and all over the shop as your ruler is operating completely out of its bounds.  It is frustrating, but its great for any creative hobbies or connections. Let people reveal themselves before you commit to anything one or anything. By April it will be clear.

Libra / Libra Rising – Day to Day routines and Work Situations might not go as smoothly as one would like, but distract from the chaos by appreciating the originality of the chaos and absurdity , I’m sure there would be plenty of tales to come from a Mercury Retrograde as whack as this. Just let it play out. Bringing reading, music or something creative into your routine for pleasure might help balance the scales and create some good (positive) escapism.

Scorpio / Scorpio Rising – Scorpio is perhaps in the best position this retrograde, occurring in your house of creativity, it is a great opportunity for any creative hobby or venture. Conceptual and doing phase, not ideal for a launching phase. The only catch for you, don’t get swept away with any knight in shinning armour activity. Chances are, they aren’t what they first appear, and looks are very deceiving this retrograde.

Sagittarius / Sagittarius Rising – Your home, family and ancestry is where you will have the opportunity to see and let go of any skeletons in the closet. This retrograde might see some surface, ready to be released. Any “Great” real estate deals or offers might be too good to be true. Wait and follow-up in April, when its easier to analyse the details rather than getting caught up in the big picture dreams.

Capricorn / Capricorn Rising – Communications might be a bit to scattered for your liking, take it all with a grain of salt and put any precious communication or thought into writing with creative flare and vision. Others might drive you mad with the chopping and changing of their word, but you have the power to channel into a creative writing or using internet based publishing for great results. Expect tech issues.

Aquarius / Aquarius Rising – Be careful around money and any promises for get rich quick schemes. It’s much better served, investing in yourself, to get rid of any clutter or doubt about your self and self-worth. Subconscious de-clutter being the first stop. Untangling the knots between earned money and self-worth, another possible area of entanglement to clear during this retrograde.
