JUPITER IN LIBRA: Harmonising Balance

screen-shot-2016-09-09-at-12-21-37-pm

” Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”   Albert Einstein 

Saturday 10th of September marks the ingress of Jupiter in to Libra after spending the last 13 months in Virgo. Jupiter in Virgo has seen the jovial expander and growth merchant apply to all things Virgoan; things such as work, daily routines & habits, health, body & body image.  Jupiter has enhanced, exaggerated or increased the focus of these things over the past year. Reflecting and reverberating in the area of life Virgo rules in your birth chart, which Jupiter was activating.

Jupiter in Virgo hasn’t always been easy as Jupiter is in detriment or simply is not completely comfortable in Virgo, it can’t expand as naturally as it would like. The 2 energies just don’t see things eye to eye. This shift into Libra finally sees Jupiter enter a sign that is receptive to Jupiter’s natural expansive behaviour, really gelling with Librian ideals of balance, harmony, relationships, creativity and artistry and justice. This should be a nice shift after the recent events such as Brexit and the refugee crisis. It will be interesting to see how these things are managed now Jupiter has ingressed in to Libra.

This shift of Jupiter is also happening at a time when other big cycles are completing. The much talked about Saturn / Neptune Square makes its final exact hit this week, with its final blast of either delusion busting or creative restructuring which began back in November 2015. This weekend also makes the mid-point of the last of the Virgo / Pisces Eclipses which is also a cycle in its ending. Eclipses are mass cleansing with its deep level affects taking up to 2 weeks – 6 months to manifest or reveal. All this whilst Mercury is retrograde in a sign it rules, Virgo !

Jupiter in Libra is fundamentally about harmony, balance,  justice, artistry and relationships. The expansion or exaggeration of these ideals in the area of life transiting Jupiter is hitting when it visits Libra in your chart is how this energy is interpreted.  Jupiter is the great gift giver, whether it be grounding or catapulting. Where Libra sits in your chart is the area of life that this Jupiter will grow with a Librian flavour.

Jupiter takes 12 – 13 months to transit a sign making it a  once in a 12 – 13 year cycle. The idea of these cycles is you grow and build from the last transit cycle 12 years ago and looking back to the last time Jupiter transited Libra is good to give you clues on what might be relevant or pertinent to you specifically.  The last two most recent Jupiter transits of Libra was October 11 1992 – Nov 10 1993 & September 25 2004 – October 25 2005, look to these time periods for clues as to what should be built.

Libra is a Cardinal Air sign. It’s a doer, its intellectual and it loves art, beauty and friendship. Moving on from Virgo’s focus on work, the body and day-to-day routine, this movement is looking to share this expansion with relationships with others and externalize the inner work  to an outer world and sphere. There is an element of pleasure and engagement with people, after all the day to day work done after its Virgo transit. With Jupiter in Libra its time to take creative buoyancy and enjoy the smoother waters of a more balanced energy when dealing with creativity and your presentation of self and your engagment with other in the outer sphere. This shift will be a real game changer as we step in to October and we feel a little more breathing space.

JUPITER IN LIBRA THROUGH THE SIGNS

ARIES / ARIES RISING

Jupiter will be activating your 7th house the natural home of Libra. Positive and helpful relationships with people will be fateful and fortuitous, with the potential to take a key relationship next level. As the 7th house also rules your ‘open enemies’ make sure you are always operating from your higher self and don’t get thrown if someone challenging you pops up ! It’s all in the name of self betterment and strengthening your relations with others and having a brilliant time while you’re doing it. Creative collaborations are blessed.

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING

Jupiter in your 6th house should see harmonious betterment in the areas of your daily routines, work and health routines. Having fun with your food, body image as well might pop up. This is a natural follow on from Jupiter in Virgo as Jupiter now hits Virgo’s natural home for you, however with the Librian influence things will be more harmonious and you will use your intellect to help push these things forward. You might also want to look at adding some sort of creative or artistic bent or element to you daily routine to max out this Jupiter in Libra influence.

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING

5th house focus of creative expression, true love and children (whether it be you have them or explore your own inner child) will be the focus of Jupiter for you this year. A bit like Taurus there is a big focus of creative expression for you. This will be a really pleasurable thing for you to explore or develop over this coming year. Libra has a strong artistic bent and the 5th house is the house of creativity for ego/self-expression and betterment. So do what ever really floats your boat that gives you an element of expression or creativity, Jupiter will really give you some satisfying rewards if you embrace it.

CANCER / CANCER RISING

Libra in Jupiter in the 4th house is all about home, family, origins and your deep roots. Things will be more happy and jovial around the home and some really lovely experiences or time will be well spent exploring or just simply enjoying this. This is a really nice gift for Cancerians as the 4th house is the natural home of your Cancer Sun. With Jupiter in Libra activating this area of your chart, it will be a really nice home-coming and lots of good foundations will be strengthened whist you have a grand old-time doing it !  This would be a great time to buy a home if you were in the market.

LEO / LEO RISING

Leo will have their 3rd house of communication, media, publishing and small trip activated. You will most likely be a voice of reason as Libra gives you the gift of the balancing gab over the next 13 months, something not always associated with Leo. Any small trips away will be good and l for you and you will perhaps find  new areas for your communication and expanding your methods of how you communicate.

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING

Chach Ching, after having Jupiter go through your 1st house of self and how you represent your self to the world, its time for the pay off !  2nd house Jupiter transits see you expand your sense of self-worth and financially see your pay increase. The 2nd house is all about your finances that you earn or create and your self worth. The next 13 months will be about you building a strong sense of self worth and increased income as Jupiter gives you gifts of work and insights that you didn’t see coming.

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING

1st house transit of Jupiter is all about you ! it’s all about your image, how you represent yourself to the world and how the world sees you ! Jupiter kind of likes to indulges so my only advice is watch the waist line it can quite easily expand with a who gives a fuq .. I’m enjoying myself to much to care ! Jupiter will give you a nice happy glow which will see others enjoy your company as you being your next full Jupiter cycle starting the outside ..before going in !

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING

The inner secret world of the 12th house will be expanded by Jupiter transit. The inner realm, the sanctuary of the inner space you create to rest in or create will be expanded and given the gifts of insight as Jupiter finishes its 12 yearly cycle around your horoscope. Whether you just take time out, pursue some spiritual practice or just do whatever internally makes you happy,  you will get great reward and benefits from this ! Scorpio likes to go deep so Jupiter lighting a light within the inner self with the more calming and balancing energy of libra applying will see this be a great little transit for insights and internally recalibrating.

SAGITTARIUS /SAGITTARIUS  RISING

Sagittarius is the natural ruler of Jupiter, so you know this energy well and for this year your ruler will be activating your 11th  house of friendships, community groups and goals and ambitions. Basically its going to be a great year for networking, seeing or creating new friendships and getting involved in any kind of social activism. These are all things the Libra loves and Jupiter there expanding them and creating brilliant opportunities for you to indulge in them, which will be a really nice thing. Just watch out you don’t party to hard ! Because Sadges do like to party !

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING

When Jupiter hits Libra in Capricorn 10th house you’re in your happy place ! the great gift giver and benefactor is activating your natural Capricorn sun’s home of Career, Status, Reward and Reputation. Libra a fellow Cardinal sign will give you some nice gifts as you have Pluto also transiting your sign but that’s a whole different story. Jupiter will offer rewards for all your hard work and killer job offer might be in the wings. Either way Jupiter will be activating in an area the you hold so very dear to your heart. And with Pluto transiting your chart, the rewards might be longer term.

AQUARIUS /AQUARIUS RISING

Jupiter will be making its way through its natural home for you this year Aquarius, its 9th house. Travel, Philosophy and Higher Learning will be highlighted for you and it would be a fantastic year to do any of the above. Jupiter is at home in the 9th house and any chance you get to travel, explore the nature of other cultures, higher thought processes or just high-end learning. You will be gifted many wonderful wow moments which will tie in to the natural interest you have for community, groups and social activism so any of the above pursuits would be well rewarded with light and internal growth.

PISCES / PISCES RISING

Pisces get the gift of exploration of your 8th house, an expansion and great opportunities for you to expand your deeper self. The 8th house is a magical house, a realm of deep psychological capacity, spiritually & sexually focused it also is the home of other people’s money ie: debt and taxes ! So you many be given the gift of a random windfall of a tax return or a great AHA moment if you choose to explore some of the metaphysical aspects of life, either way try not to let Jupiter’s tendency to expand to any debt ! This would be the less ideal way Jupiter could apply when transiting your 8th house ! Happy wandering

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full Moon Eclipse in Aries – Total Eclipse of the Heart


Screen shot 2015-09-22 at 4.03.34 PM

self  

noun

  1. 1.
    a person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.
    “our alienation from our true selves”
    synonyms:
    ego, I, oneself, persona, person, identity, character, personality,psyche, soul, spirit, mind, intellect, inner man/woman/person, inner self, one’s innermost feelings, one’s heart of hearts

September 27/28 brings to us a Full Supermoon Eclipse (see times below), the final in the Libra/Aries axis of eclipse which have been occurring since April 2014. This is the final eclipse of this series, denoting a focus on issues  based around the ideas of the ‘WE’ and ‘I’ in Relationships.  The  ‘I’ in Aries will be fusing, blocking, revealing, triggering the Libra ‘We’ element in relationships making the delineations round it more clear, pushing for an evening out of the balances or a refocusing of your energies, so you (the individual) have a stronger place to stand within it all.

Full moon eclipses are generally seen as being endings, however since this is the 4th and final in this series, the Aries Moon could be putting its final stamp on asserting YOUR agenda or affirming YOUR  need for independence or autonomy in relations with others, to benefit your emotional wellbeing. If you have been TOO independent, it will seek for you to put more balance into your relations.

Interestingly enough this Full Supermoon Eclipse (only the 4th since 1910) is occurring just as Venus the Goddess of Love, has just come out of her 40 day retrograde cycle, a cycle based on re-assessing values in relationships and your relationship / love for yourself. It is also occurring just after Mercury (Hermes – the Messenger of the Gods) has just gone retrograde in Libra, another transit based around re-assessment of communications, thought processes and how you learn and express yourself, in the sign of relationships and balance (Libra).  There is clearly a strong focus on pushing people to really assess and re-evaluate their interactions with themselves and others in relationships, and moving of the goal posts with regards to what you want to get out of your relationships. Do they serve you ? Do you get enough out of them ? Do they nourish you ? Do they match your values?  This final eclipse is going to give you an ultimatum which will help you push forward to get rid of any undesirable traits or relationships, within yourself and with others as well as removing relationships that aren’t working.

Eclipse energy can feel full on at the time, but it’s not always an instantaneous result, there can be delays in news being revealed by eclipses and there is definitely the idea that not all the news is fully revealed to you at the time of eclipse. Something is blocked or eclipsed from your vision, so this is generally not a great action time but its a very good assessment or reassessment time especially considering the current retrograde pattens are also pushing the same themes. If something does present that you have to react to, know that it has appeared to help push you along with the above themes. If something comes out of the blue or you are in a position where you just have to act, do so knowing that it is part of a bigger cycle of self development for positive individuation.

With Saturn moving into Sagittarius, it allows the development of these relationship and Libran ideas of balance and fairness to have a bit more buoyancy – a bit more float or fire. Rather than being a bogged down heavy water laden exercise as when Saturn was in Scorpio, this time around it will be a little bit more ….  “the truth will set me free!”  kinda optimism. Saturn’s move in to Sagittarius a week before the eclipse will help make this final eclipse more distinctive from the previous 3 that had the Saturn in Scorpio edge to them. There will be more optimism around the decisions met with the eclipse.

This eclipse is a occurring at 4 degrees Aries so anyone with any planets at this degree of any sign will be feeling the heat the most. People that don’t have the eclipse exactly hitting any natal planets will see the effect of this eclipse action all around them.

It will be a Supermoon Eclipse – meaning it will be one of the  closest orbits to the earth for this year. It is only the 4th time since 1910 that the SuperMoon has been on an Eclipse.  So while watching  the visual spectacle enjoy the final integration of finding your own Tūrangawaewae, or place to stand amongst the shifting sands of your own identity within the group.

Jupiter into Virgo – Making Hay While the Sun Shines

Screen shot 2015-08-06 at 7.27.17 PM“Every 12 years Jupiter returns to the same position in the sky; every 370 days it disappears in the fire of the Sun in the evening to the west, 30 days later it reappears in the morning to the east…”[Observation in 4th century B.C.] — Gan De   Chinese astronomer who was one of the earliest to make observations on Jupiter recording them with dates and coordinates.

August 11th 2015, marks Jupiter’s movement into Virgo after a year in fiery Leo. As observed in 400 BC by Chinese astronomers, Jupiter moves through the signs every 12 – 13 months, completing its cycle every 12 years. Jupiter is the great benefactor, the gift giver, the lucky one, the planet of expansion, growth, good fortune, jovial magic and blessings. Wherever your Jupiter transit is happening  things are just easier, good opportunities come to you, whether you see them or not !

The last time Jupiter went into Virgo was 31st August 2003 – 26th  September 2004. You are now looking at being able to build on and expand on the opportunities given to you at the time, 12 years prior. What happened back then ? Can you see how you might be able to expand on events from or that began back then?

Virgo, an Earth sign is all about Work and the Body.  Service to work and how you look after your body to be of service and work. In Astrology these things are linked – they can’t be separated. Without looking after you body you can not work. Food, health, routines, attention and analysis to your service to work are the underling themes with this Jupiter in Virgo transit. Are theses routines healthy ? Do they serve you ? Do you need to change anything for greater benefit ?

If you have any planets in Virgo or its hitting any important points in your chart, the focus will be great (whether you choose it or not !) . You will be given the opportunity to grow or really be blessed with choice or great opportunities in certain areas over the next year. When Jupiter is around great opportunities seem to just fall from the air !

Pluto aspecting Jupiter’s move through Virgo augments it or gives it more oomph. Since Pluto will be trining from Capricorn (another work based sign focusing on status and achievement) this idea of being able to transform your working environment and life will be given more support to allow this process to happen in a smoother way, with more punch.

In old Astrology Jupiter aspecting Pluto like this is said to be the mogul transit. Great power and achievements can be made when Pluto the planet of Transformation and Regeneration (phoenix from ashes, snakes shedding skins type stuff) is making a positive aspect to Jupiter (good luck and expansion) in the sign of daily work and health.

The last time Jupiter was in Virgo it had Uranus making a difficult aspect from Aquarius, making this Jupiterian expansion turbulent with sometimes volatile changes making the Jupitarian vibe harder to access. This time around it’s not the case. Don’t be surprised if you see the economy pick up, more benefits coming towards you in the work environment. Jupiter is a strong energy, he is in mythology the God who ruled over all the other Gods ! The saying “By Jove” to express surprise and excitement, and the word Jovial come directly from Jupiter and his lucky reputation as a giver of gifts and happy times. He is a powerful figure and is very much about you & society. Jupiter governs the individual and the world, and the relationship of the two.

Now is a really good time to get into some more healthy practises for your body, aim or looking at achieving new goals at work as well working on areas that make you anxious (Virgo can be an anxious energy) healthy (physical and psychological) self-mastery is really the key here. A bit like the 7 & 8 of pentacles in Tarot.

On its lower end energetically beware of nervous and anxiety being more apparent, stress of work being manifested with illness in the body, manipulation of alcohol or things you put IN your body (using what you put in your body to control other stresses ) these are all very indicative of an unhealthy manifestation of the Virgo energy. With Jupiter coming into play, these things can become more overwhelming and expansive.

Jupiter into Virgo this August 11th is a wonderful time to sit down and look at what goals you might want to achieve in the area of work and health as your more likely to get them  ! Write them down, analysis them, think practically the steps you might have to take to get them. Earth energy loves to be practical, solid, grounded, pragmatic, logical. Virgo gets off on analysis and this transit might allow you to as well.

Jupiter isn’t about sitting on your ass and waiting for it, its more like if you steer your ship into the new direction you want to achieve,  Jupiter will make the sailing all the smoother and easier, with the antidote “your ship is about to come in” being tres on point for this golden jovial jupitarian transit. Now is the time to go forward’s and conquer, as the king of the gods and the great beneficent is bestowing new blessings for you to work with, for the first time in 12 years.

Jupiter in Virgo through the Signs

Virgo – 1st House:  How you present yourself to the World, Your Identity.

You will be looking at people recognising you for your talent in the work place, all your hard work will be paying off as people finally applaud and recognise all the work you have done, this becomes good way to see your identity and ego expand (Just don’t go OTT). A new look, a new vibe and new you.

Libra – 12th House : Secrets, The Hidden, Your Inner World.

This is a good time and opportunity to use that Virgoan trait of analysis and self bettering improvement in the area of your life around the inner you (your mind – sub conscious – the hidden – the mystical and spiritual) by analysing your subconscious, your shadow side more could see great opportunity to know thy self more for greater gains when you pop out the other side in a years time. This will prep you for September 2016 when Jupiter enters your sign and its your time to shine and show the world a new you. This jupiter transit allows you to get growth in doing the work behind the scenes, under the radar, without the world watching. Inner healing is the key.

Scorpio – 11th House – Friends – Groups – Community groups – Hopes and Wishes.

Is an area of great fulfillment and growth, as long as you pay attention to  your work habits and watch you don’t go on a permanent year bender with it all. Getting out and being social could provide some beautiful a-ha moments as well as some amazing opportunities to grow and meet new people who can really help your progression as your spirits are lifted once Saturn moves out of your sign in September for another 28 years.

Sagittarius – 10th house – Career, External Status, Achievement 

Simple Jupiter going through the 10th house while Pluto trines it from Capricorn you’re in for some über work and career accomplishments, your achievements are recognized however with Saturn going through your sign at the same time, these wins, will ONLY come through hard work, focus and an understanding that karma has a part to play on this. Saturn may put a reality check on all this but, what is analysed, worked hard on and done with out cutting any corners will make the victory even sweeter. If not, Saturn might just give you some reality checks along the way to this expansion.

Capricorn – 9th House of Travel and Philosophy, Higher understanding through doing and engaging with different cultures and philosophy’s.

Jupiter means going traveling or undertaking a form of study at this time is highly beneficial. Once again using the Virgoan aptitude for pre-planning and analyzing all the options means what you learn and take from all this could be life changing, as your pre planning allows you to just enjoy the ride.  If you can involve some work in it all the better, if not just enjoy the break you have probably earned it !

Aquarius – 8th house of Deeper Emotional Connections with People, Other Peoples Money and The Esoteric.

Well that cash windfall could come from a surprise Tax Return, Inheritance or some source of money that is not strictly yours. Learning about the esoteric highly beneficial right now and any opportunity to engage in deep meaningful relations with people could see your outlook and philosophy change dramatically.

Pisces – 7th House  of One on One Relationships with People Personal and Business.

Will see an expansion of lucky or influential people into your life who could give you great opportunity to grow and expand your opportunities and learn about one on one interactions taking things to the next level. New people will present new opportunities that benefit you … Pretty simple really

Aries – 6th House of Health, Work Service and Daily Routines.

With Jupiter transiting Virgo’s natural home, Aries you will feel these Virgoean themes the most as the attributes that rule Virgo also rule the 6th house. Healthy body and work routines will be the focus with good work opportunity being the direct side effect.

Taurus –  5th House of Creativity, True Love and Children. Relationships with Children.

Joy and happiness will be a signature of your interaction with children or creativity over the coming year, the opportunity to expand on any creative platforms with positive and enthusiastic results will be on the horizon.

Indulging or pursuing anything that is creative or expands your creativity is super fortuitous to you right now.

Gemini – 4th House of Family, Home and Ancestors.

Jupiter could see new members of the family arrive, a closer relationships or understanding of your roots and family develop and help expand your understanding of your place within the family dynamic. It could also be a good time to invest in property or see your investment in property increase remarkably.

Cancer – 3rd House of communication and the Internet, Short Holidays and Sibling.

Now would be a great time to write or do anything communication based or internet based that you have been sitting on for a while, you could get some wonderful unexpected results, putting you naturally intuitive communication out there. Relations with Siblings is also easier this year as well. Any short breaks away would also be great too ! Try going somewhere different and break the routine you could be presently surprised.

Venus Retrograde In Leo – 40 days and 40 nights of Venusian Transformation


Screen shot 2015-07-11 at 1.32.16 PM
” Goddess on the mountain top, burning like a silver flame, the summit of beauty and love and Venus was her name “ Bananarama.

Venus the Goddess of Love and Beauty starts her once and every 18 month retrograde in late July (July 25th until September 6). She begins this process by moving backwards in the night sky before disappearing from view as she moves behind the Sun magically reappearing after 40 days and 40 days as a bright Morning Star (visible under the Moon just before sunrise) . Where she goes during this time has been the story of many myths and legends. The Romans gave Venus the name Lucifer or Light Bearer because of the myth when she disappears from sight, she travels through Underworld to re-emerge wiser and more of a Warrior Venus after her journey to the Underworld, reclaiming her femininity and power. The biblical references to Jesus’s journey or sacrifice of 40 days and 40 nights comes from this Venus Retrograde cycle.

Venus retrograde’s are a reclaiming of ones light, going inwards to your own inner and sometimes underworld to reclaim and re-evaluate your Venus, your femininity and your values around relationships and yourself. It is through the different signs  at different retrogrades that we are able to look at our Venus in a different light, being able to evaluate and evolve with a different lens to that we are used to. It’s a beautiful time to allow yourself the time to reflect on these Venusian ideas of values in and around relationships, love, old love, femininity, health, beauty, self-love and self nourishment. With Venus being in Leo at the time of this retrograde, honouring your Venus in a Leo style is particularly beneficial, fortuitous and nourishing.

Leo is representative of The Sun, Royalty, Nobility, Dignity, Beauty, Creativity, Shining your light via opening your heart to others or letting the Performer / Inner Child shine. It’s the creative expression of this Venus as you go within which is of particular value at this retrograde time, with the easiest manifestation being the pursuit of great hair !  Leo’s love to indulge in beauty routines, things that make them look great and feel regal and dignified so they can stand out from a crowd. It’s about letting that Sun shine ! It’s not surprising Madonna, Jennifer Lawrence, Cara Delevingne and Jennifer Lopez are Leo’s, flowing tresses and immaculately groomed. If eyes aren’t on them they feel as if they have failed ! Tori Amos another Leo has never been afraid to stand out, either with her bright red hair or her unabashed  performances which see her at times orgasm whilst performing on stage.  It’s this unapologetic shining of ones Venus or Feminine light and reflecting on how we do it,  is really the point of this Leo retrograde, honouring and encouraging it. Its is a little bit, I am woman hear me roar !

The only warning for a Venus Retrograde is to not to do anything that can’t be easily changed back. Venus retrograde are never a great time to get Tattoos or Plastic Surgery if that’s your schtick … as sometimes things aren’t always fully revealed under Venus Retrograde, so any experiment’s should be easily fixable just in case in reflection you missed a very obvious piece of information !

It is a time where old flames may come back or past loves are in contact out of the blue. Venus Retrograde does signify past loves coming back or you could be thinking of them after a long absence of thought. Very nice for the reassessment and looking at how life has evolved since then. But not the best time to push forward on or pursue a relationship. The approach should be more, letting the relationship breath and allow for room for the fire to grow as you re-assess and honour yourself for a while.

Currently Venus has been playing around with Jupiter in the night sky. If you look up after Sunset for the first 4 hours, Venus and Jupiter are the 2 brightest lights in the sky if you look West.  Due to the  upcoming Retrograde this will be elongated as Venus moves back to conjunct Jupiter again in August. The two luckiest planets in the sky, the major and minor benefactor slowly doing a sexy tango in the closest orbit for some are saying for 2000 years. Right now is a great time to look up and view them at their most regal and magical. To see them physically in the sky whilst thinking of the thousands of years of mythology and legend around their existence and movement is a great way to start to honour this retrograde cycle.

Venus in Leo Retrograde through the signs.

Aries: 5th house of Creativity, Children, Love, play around with your creativity, let your performers side out a bit, use your femininity with children or feed your inner child by doing something you used to love doing. It’s about merging your femininity with your creative urges or at least reflecting on how to interconnect the two.

Taurus: 4th house of Home, Family, Roots and Ancestry. show your feminine light at home ! bring out your inner child at home. Be playful, and do some self nurture at home while you reflect on the past. Home based beauty routines would be great as well as spending more time looking after yourself rather than sacrificing yourself for your Home and Family.

Gemini: 3rd house of Communication, Siblings, the Internet. Add some affection and drama to your communication. Not everything has to be all intellectual and clinical. Could you look at the Internet as a way of new creative expression ?  New communication might  pop up with old flames.

Cancer: 2nd house of Money, Self made Finances and Self Worth. Simple – by some glamorous grooming and treating yourself to some feminine luxuries, it will improve your feeling of self-worth … full stop ! review your personal grooming, Are you doing enough to make yourself feel like a glamazonian ? Get out of the house and tart yourself up ! Go glam or go home !

Leo: 1st House of how you express yourself, show the world what your made of by reviewing your style, How you love and How you present yourself to the world and bam ! When Venus goes direct the world will see a new you ! Its all about reviewing how you present yourself, its as superficial as that !

Virgo: 12 house of Inner Self, Healing, The Secret You, Mysticism, this retrograde is about you assessing the very foundations of how you identify and express your femininity, this is an opportunity for inner transformation. Chrysalis to Butterfly kind of material. Your inner re assessment could allow you to restructure the essence of how you present and engage with your feminine side, with the butterfly beginning to emerge as Venus goes in to your home sign of Virgo in October , just as Jupiter the great benefactor has entered your Sun sign for a year transit. How fortuitous !

Libra: 11 house of Friends, Community, the Tribe and your Hopes and Wishes. Look to your friends to show you how you shine,  Do they support you, Do they help you shine?  What are your Hopes and Wishes with Love are you aiming high enough ? or is it just an idealist explosion ? Are your feminine lights pitching in the right direction ? Do your Hopes and Wishes or your tribe allow you to fulfill your own personal wishes or are they being brought down by Qi Vampires as you try to hold the balance?

Scorpio: 10th house of Career, Success achievement and Acclaim. Is your feminine light being expressed to its highest level for all the achievements and success that you truly deserve ? Why not ? Is your Venus the secret to your success in the outer world of Career and Success and do the right people see it ? Could a little more subtle glam help you ? Or are you hiding it not realizing it might be the key to your success.

Sagittarius: 9th house of Philosophy, Higher Learning, Travel. To be traveling or studying some kind of mythology maybe around Venus or Feminine Divine would be a nice way of honouring and exploring yourself during the retrograde, perhaps some philosophical eureka moments may present itself or even going back to philosophy’s that have been left for a while could be brought back into your daily routine to help your feminine expansion.

Capricorn: 8th house of deeper emotional connections with people, psychology, the esoteric, external money sources. Venus in Leo would be a great way to put some colour and performance with your deeper connections with people or psychological processing, new ways of dealing with emotional issues could present themselves with less pressure on barriers and more focus on fun, creativity, heart-felt connections and opening of ones heart without the usual Saturnian doom and gloom or conservatism (or as you see it, home truths and realities) that comes with Capricorn. This could work wonders for you in this retrograde cycle. Transformation via creative expansion rather than realist restrictions.

Aquarius: 7th house of One on One Relationships (Work, Personal and Enemies) A bit like Capricorn an opening or re assessment of ones heart and passion, rather than going all detached Air on it, to sit down and focus on what YOU want out of your relationships for YOU, not the greater good, or not for anyone else’s benefit, By opening your heart to what you want and looking at how this would help you flourish is the perfect way to honour yourself.

Pisces: 6th house of service, daily routine, health and wellbeing. Simple – take the bull by the horns and hammer out what you enjoy doing that makes the above areas of life more interesting, creative and exciting. Putting a bit more flair and Colour and attention into your health, working and day-to-day routine will make things less laborious and more fun, what would the child version of you do to make these things more fun and exciting ?

All the best for this upcoming Retrograde, and enjoy the process of re-evaluating how you explore and assert your feminine wellbeing.

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini – Duelling with the Magician

Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 11.48.48 am

I’m a Gemini, so I change my mind every day.      Natalie Portman

Mercury Retrograde, everyone’s favourite little Astrology number is coming back around again … time to get prepped for Mercury’s retrograde of is ruling sign Gemini. Outside knowing the Moon Phase, Mercury Retrograde is perhaps the next most known or spoken about Astrological phenomenon, closely followed by the Saturn Return.  So what exactly is a Mercury Retrograde ?

Mercury Retrograde is when the planet of communication, thoughts, processes, learning, travel and ideas goes backwards in the sky traveling backwards for a small amount of time before moving forwards again. In doing so it retrogrades over elements of your birth chart. This is a time for reflection, delays and potentially opposition.This generally manifests in chaos in everyday life (for those who are at a loss as to what the hell is going on ! ). However  Mercury’s Retrograde is becoming so well accepted in mainstream society once a friend came into work all excited after seeing it mentioned on CSI: New York as a reason by one of the scientist as to why their investigation had so awry.

There is ALWAYS a list of things NOT to do in times of Mercury Retrograde which I think is good to be conscious of but to be honest I’m not really one to stop life because of Astrology and you know what sometimes you have no choice in the matter so you just need to move forward and TRIPLE check the finer details that’s all ! Be the Virgo (Mercury’s other ruling sign). So traditionally things not to do during a Mercury Retrograde are the following .. Don’t buy electronic equipment as it will crap out, Sign major contracts ie: work or buy a house because there will be information that hasn’t been brought to light yet. Don’t travel, if you do it will be plagued with delays, be prepared for everyone to mis-communicate, forget the key information, phones going down, mail not arriving and so on and so forworth.

But see what I mean, we can’t actually live under a rock for 6 weeks 3 times a year, this is where the old school idea of Astrology being a condemnation and a list of do’s and don’t is becoming outdated and the idea of doing things at your peril is just lame !

Instead we need to go ok this is going on, I’m going to have to be more vigilant, be more focused on the details, I’m going to go with my intuition, I’m going to do ALL my homework as the potential for something to go wrong has just increased. If I can push things out thats great, if not lets not get all dooms day on it.

There are times when the Mercury Retrograde is good ! it’s a wonderful time to review ideas and themes that are pertinent to the house of the retrograde. ie: Mercury Retrograde is a great time to review your daily routines and work habits, good for reviewing your career, or maybe you get the opportunity to work with a company or in a job that you haven’t done for a few years, which has just happened to me which is awesome ! Reviewing money how you spend it or earn it, your relationships how you engage in them, these are very valuable things that the Mercury Retrograde offers rather than shreeking in horror and starting dooms day predictions for your 2 week holiday in Fiji. People are paranoid enough without having to add to it right !

There is a really high proportion of  great writers being born with Mercury retrograde in their chart. Madonna has Mercury retrograde conjunct Pluto (the underworld /transformation stuff) in her birthchart … Hello in your face everything I’m going to say is going to challenge your beliefs so I can transform your ideas on Sex, Money, Class and Taste …  Like A Virgin, and her Sex Book weren’t exactly subtle and were tres controversial.  For a dancer whose vocal talent was always questionable it was WHAT she had to say and HOW she did it which made her a revolutionary. Without Mercury Retrograde conjunct Pluto, I don’t think she would have had such punch. It made her think outside the square and made her a very famous and rich woman along the way.

So Mercury Retrograde in Gemini what does this MEAN !  Mercury retrogrades are a 3 week period. However Mercury has to slow down, stop, be still before moving backwards so there is thing called a Mercury shadow period which actually extends it to be 6 weeks. Just be cautious earlier that’s all.

Mercury Shadow (4-18 May) Mercury Retrograde (18th May 11 June) Mercury shadow (June 11 – 27th). Mercury is the RULER of Gemini so this retrograde will be quite powerful but I think in a good way ! what you’re reviewing will be clearer ! The messages will be strong and clear. Gemini energy is a tricky little energy with a shortish attention span ie: reading 5 books on the go rather than just 1, and being a mutable sign it is both dualist in nature and manifestation. However mercury is happy in Gemini and its strong in Gemini which makes it a rather healthy retrograde. Mars will also be conjuncting for a time so it will be super strong, as the god of war and masculine intent – Mars power! adds a bit more oomph to these reviews/delays/confusion, just check your mouth before you mouth off as Mars might be putting more into it than you originally intended. Knowing which house (area of your life) that this retrograde effects is the key to knowing where this will be more pronounced in your life. For me, its in my 10 house of career and accomplishment. Interestingly enough I’ve just got work with the first company that hired me when I first moved to Melbourne and its in a very similar project to then. Very Mercury Retrograde.

So I guess the purpose for this blog is for you to own it ! Know the dates, know what you have to do, step forward with confidence and knowledge and laugh at the irony when these little hick ups come along. Mercury retrograde can and is a pain in the ass but if we change our thinking slightly it can encompass so much more that the normally thrown around fears traditionally associated with it. Time to turn the trickster energy of Mercury’s retrograde INTO the Magician. Be the Magician !

Full Moon In Scorpio – When the facade begins to crack

Screen Shot 2015-04-30 at 11.03.21 am

“Scorpio is the Perfect Storm”

“There’s something about the darker side of life that fascinates Scorpio. They don’t mind digging into things others might find scary or undesirable”

This upcoming Full Moon is Scorpio (May 3-4) is just one of those things that needs to be flagged … before things go a bit side ways and wild.  I’ve actually reached the stage of when emotions become cutting and transformative out of nowhere, I’ve had to stop and thought I bet it’s a Scorpio Moon and bingo, it is. The Scorpio Full Moon is like the gauge for irrational emotional events… fights with lovers, dark transcendence/transformation, the rain clouds storming on you outta nowhere. If the concept is we operate mainly on an unconscious level 95% of the time, and Full Moons bring light to the dark, illuminating what has been hidden, Fuck me the Scorpio  (rules unconscious) Full Moon is like an unconscious emotional colonic !

This Full Moon is an amazing opportunity to delete some very old unconscious programming, with the moon shining a light on it, to highlight whats been lurking in the darkness, untouched and unrecognized. The Sun in Taurus is asking you to look after yourself physically with simple, comfort and stability physically, self nurture and care on the physical realm, while the Full Moon (in opposition to the Sun) helps to purge your emotional subconscious to its deepest realms, forcing you to creating boundaries, where needed, and blowing up the blockages. So essentially great care is needed this Full Moon.

Scorpio has sting ! its has change, it has transformative transcendence, it IS the Phoenix coming out of the ashes, the snake that is shedding another skin, it is the eagle of prey sawing high above the earth… All amazing things but not so amazing when you’re the last to know why everything suddenly got heavy man, as you were to busy having fun avoiding your shadow. This is a passionate moon that pushes for transformation and letting go, at the very least shining a light on your shit! This Full Moon is a closure to the Scorpio New Moon that was eclipsed October 24th 2014. This Full Moon is the ending to this 6 month cycle, as the New Moon was eclipsed, this adds more weight to this idea of hidden issues or unconscious patterns coming out to be let go of.

Pluto (Hades) – the god of the Underworld is Scorpio’s ruler is in a positive aspect to this Moon doubling the transformational aspect,  while Mars ( God of War, Aggression and a fast paced confrontational energy ) is in opposition to it.  When in opposition energies must be balanced. This Moon is supercharged,  so use this energy wisely, its a great time to be creative, purge, let go ! The aim of this Full Moon is to channel this Scorpionic energy to its highest level ! Haute Scorpio not Low Scorpio as the great Mystic Medusa says.

Haute Scorpio – Positive Psycho-Analysis, Deep conservation sans booze and the dream weed (Lucid Dream aka trippy tea is ok), Feeling deeply without projecting onto others, Intuitive, Discreet, Sexy, Strong, Spooky, Principled, Meditative, In Tune, Transformative, Sex Magick

Low Scorpio – Scrappy, Obsessive, Paranoid, Vindictive, Grudge bearing, Snarky and Snappy, Muck Throwing, Judgemental, Invoking Negative Energy, Wasted on Boozed and Dream Weed, Space Dust or WHATEVER they can get their hands on, Fucked up Sexual Relations and Boundaries

This Moon will aggravate all of the above so keep it clean folks and aim high ! All the power to you and make sure you check your shit before you bring out that repressed Scorpionic tail .

Hey Jupiter

A storm on Jupiter
A storm on Jupiter

“Hey Jupiter, No one is picking up the phone, I guess its me and me” Tori Amos – Hey Jupiter.

Well, its been feeling a little bit like that since Jupiter turned retrograde on 9th December 2014.  Jupiter the great benefactor, our jovial Joie de Vivre, is turning his spirits around THIS Thursday after a 4 month retrograde in Leo. Retrogrades are tricky little pieces of time travel where a planet is moving backwards, so its energy is not manifested directly or in a forward and expansive motion. All planets retrograde with the Mercury Retrograde being the most commonly discussed retrograde.

Retrogrades are a great time for going inward – introspection, reviewing, analysis etc. With all the heavy hitting astrology of this year, Pluto (deep transformation) square (difficult aspect) to Uranus (surprise, change, revolution), New moons conjunct Pluto, Blood Moons, Mercury retrograde etc Jupiter going direct on Thursday is going to be a welcome relief and one that resonates with people sooner rather than later !

Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion, travel, jovialness, enthusiasm, higher philosophy – so with luck and expansion being restricted and not able to properly assert his energy with all this tough other astrology going down, this Jupiter direct is going to be the hit we need to start moving forward after a challenging start to 2015.

Jupiter has been in Leo since July 2014 and will remain there until August 2015 before moving in to Virgo. Jupiter in Leo gives you a good hit of 12 year luck and expansion wherever you have Leo in your birth chart, your finances, your career, relationships etc.  Jupiter in Leo is NOT shy, it’s not quiet, its got quite a nice bit of flare and expansion. Best of all he LOVES being in the fire signs. So when Jupiter moves forward in Leo on Thursday there should be a wee jolt, a wee raising of the spirits – more optimism, more room for growth, expansion and possibilities. After 4 months of mulling over how to make such things happen I must admit, it’s going to be fucking awesome having Jupiter back onside again ! Time to pop the Champagne and embrace the new opportunities that await in true Jupitarian fashion. It will be something sweet after all this evolutionary astrology thats been hitting our decks !  And lord knows recently we have all earned it !

Blood Moon on the Rise – The Full Moon Eclipse

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 4.24.52 pm

“I’ll see you again, when the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill” One Tree Hill (U2’s ode to a NZ roadie killed in Dublin in 1986)

“Only very strong souls enter and leave at the time of an eclipse”

Informing a friend today about this Saturdays full moon eclipse in libra,  as a visual event and energy shift, she replied, “The Last Blood Moon my partner had to have emergency surgery, I’m not a fan of Blood Moons”, my response was simple, “my grandmother died at the last one, I think there fucking evil”.  I was struck how history was still telling us personally how potent a Blood Moon Eclipse is in our individual lives, and how perceptions of them hasn’t changed much over history. The the imagery of blood being still very pertinent and a central theme directly correlated to that Moon.

Full Moon Eclipses have been feared by many cultures  for thousands of years. While it is exciting to see it as a visual phenomenon and spectacle, its impacts and change brought about with it has created much fear and at times anxiety throughout history. The Mesopotamian Kings would go into hiding at an eclipse and a false king would be put on the throne for fear of what the eclipse would bring. Ancient Japanese culture said it would foreshadow an earthquake and other natural disasters, the Romans saw its as a bad omen which saw deaths of rulers, while Indians would not let their pregnant women out of the house for fear of the effect on the unborn child. In some African cultures (Togo and Benin) it is seen as a positive thing, the Sun and The Moon in conflict with each other, encouraging people to end arguments and feuds, seeing it as a sign to put down arms and make peace. Islamic religions pray to it and see it as a direct communication from Allah, connecting to it ask for forgiveness and well wishing. Whatever the belief the power and the presence of the eclipse is undeniable, across many cultures practising many forms of religion.

The belief about the energies differ,  but the idea of a large purge links them. On the negative side is that the Sun and the Moon are blocking each other, with each others energies. The Sun (ego/masculine) is in conflict or not being able to shine as the Moon (emotions/feminine) blocks it, creating tensions. The blood moon is seen as an aggressive moon, with red giving rise to blood being shed, or life lost, war, blood, death, destruction being strong images and consequences. Something my friend and I could relate to.

From a more positive and slightly more feminist perspective, the blood moon eclipse can be seen as the masculine (the sun) and feminine (the moon) energies blending – harmonising with each other, the blood moon being symbolic for birth, menstruation, fertility (especially potent now at Easter which was originally a pagan fertility festival). The blood moon being a massive purge and released of blood / destruction with the rebirthing of another less intense purge 28 days later, at the next full moon. Death, birth and regeneration on a more grandiose scale, hence why the blood moon is seen with such fear and suspicion.

No matter what your leanings, one thing that both parties agree to is that the true message of the moon eclipse is not fully revealed at the time. It is either hidden or incubated with only small clues to hint at its conception. The true meaning or message from an eclipse can take up to 6 months to be revealed to the individual. However once revealed its often dramatic and life altering.

Eclipses come in cycles and pairs, this current full moon eclipse harks back to the full moon eclipse last April 15th 2014, any messages for lessons from that eclipse are coming to an end now. It’s the ending of that cycle.  What was going on at that time in your life, another signifier would be the New Moon in Libra last year, September 23/24th. This full moon is the completion of a cycle that started then. What was important or going on then can give you clues as to what Saturday’s eclipse might be about.

This Eclipse at 14 degrees of Libra ( the sign of balance ) is an ending of any themes important at that April 15th 2014 or September 23/24 2014 time, looking to where you have Libra in your birth chart is a good place to see where this Saturdays eclipse may manifest over the next up to 6 months.

Eclipses bring dramatic change through unforeseen events, the energy around the actual eclipse is emotional, tense,  scattered, zingy, hard to get a grip on. Things will come out of nowhere and are often dramatic. This is not the case for every eclipse as they happen 2x a year in pairs, however the past year has been very challenging astrology for a lot of people and these eclipses have been tuning into some of the heavy hitters at play.  The size of the eclipse also dictates its potency. Through a life time eclipses can often be looked back on and seen as triggering a great series of events. House and Family, Money and Worth, Relationships and Community, Career and Creativity. Spirituality and Service.

So when enjoying the splendor of this weekends Full Eclipse of the full moon and admiring the amazing show mother nature is putting on, tune in to what might be buzzing around in your life at that time and watch and wait for its evolutionary manifestation, no matter what it is, I have no doubt it will be life changing and liberating.

Neptunian Musing ….

The Neptunian Haze

Neptune is your Muse’ an astrologer once told me … ‘Neptune will give you what you want’.

I didn’t know much about Neptune when this wonderful line was given to me, But the two things I did know was  1). drug and alcohol addiction is common signifier for those with a strong and badly functioning Neptune. 2) When it rains on Neptune, it rains diamonds.  These two things alone made me realise the scope and room to play as well as the highs and lows of this mystical planet. I felt like I would need an a-ha moment to fully understand Neptune and I left scratching my head deciding to dig deeper into this Neptunian unknown.

Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, the 12 sign, the 12th house. The hidden. the mystical. Allegedly the house of undoing and redoing.  The hazy, foggy, blurred energy that is Neptune and exploring  how it manifests by permeating it uncontainable energy was going to give me what I wanted seemed contradictory to how I operated or wanted to at least.

Neptune is like a drug on both its high and low sides (or good and bad) with the difference being self creation and connecting with the divine, rather than ingesting something to create this personal mystical, creative, spiritual world or journey. Mind over matter if you will.

Learning to see the ways Neptune can operate was interesting and opened my mind to the possibility of real magick being at play in the world. Quite the achievement for someone whose grounded and intellectual processing stops them from drifting to far off shore.

Neptune when it is functioning well and is nurtured, is spiritual soul mating, its manifesting magick, its house magick, its mystisim, its spiritual retreat, visionary, its creative, its music, its dance, its film and television, its poetry, its writing. It is creative thought and art. Neptune is the Artist. Neptune is the Musician, Neptune is the Mystic, Neptune is your Soul Mate.

Neptune when its down – low rent – or not working as freely as it would like to is unclear, its blurry, its foggy, its unrevealed. It uses things like drugs and alcohol to procure the above experiences. It uses false idols to create this mystical experience of creation. Low functioning Neptune, will not allow you to see the truth of your situation and blinds you from seeing what is really in front of you. Blocked intuition, vision and when the rose tinted glasses come flying off you begin to recognise your in the throws of a bad Neptune transit.

Knowing your natal Neptune and its aspects allows you to see where this magick naturally takes place for you. Knowing where Neptune is transiting in your birth chart will give you a head start in knowing where the fog might be setting in and where things will be slightly unclear and at the very least not fully revealed.

The good news is that Neptune is in Pisces its natural ruler for the next 9 years, and its super potent right now especially with regards to creating your high end neptunian dreams. Perfect time for manifesting. You will notice you will be attracting more Pisceans into the transiting area of your life, (I shit you not !) It is also a really bad time to be delusional around Neptunian ideals. This whole new wave of young women discovering the esoteric and spirituality is a very good reflection of this as we enter our 4th year of the Neptune in Pisces transit. Now is a great time to keep a dream diary and to start exploring communication via creation. Any form of creation.

The houses are a great way to see how Neptune is affecting your life. Are you doing high level soul mating with your 7th house of one on one relationships ? Are you being delusional about finances with your 2nd house transit of money and self worth ? Is your creative world taking flight and buzzing with your 5th house of creativity or are you just getting too high lamenting all the grand plans that are on offer that your inspired to do but haven’t quite taken the first step ?

Neptune can never be controlled or contained but it can be managed or at least directed, Neptune can allow you to muse, Neptune says aim high with Soul Mates – they ARE out there don’t give up. With Neptune there is a fine line between the divine and the delusional – a VERY fine line. Knowing how to ride Continue reading

Pluto in Capricorn – How To Turn Goats Piss into Gasoline

Screen Shot 2015-02-14 at 12.35.15 pm

planet
ˈplanɪt/
noun
 
  1. a celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit round a star.
    • the earth.
      noun: the planet
      “no generation has the right to pollute the planet”
    • ASTROLOGYhistorical
      a celestial body distinguished from the fixed stars by having an apparent motion of its own (including the moon and sun), especially with reference to its supposed influence on people and events.
      “the planets are presently influencing you in a positive way”

Pluto, dear old Pluto. Lets not get started on this planet – non planet malarkey … and debates around its status can refer to the above ….. however let me continue …. Pluto, dear old Pluto … a planet I didn’t really know much about … until Pluto’s unscheduled (in my life) yet much-anticipated for astrologer’s entry in Capricorn in 2008. Pluto’s entry in to Capricorn had an immediate impact on the world, cue the global financial crisis and the partial collapse of the current banking systems of the most secure nations of the world. Pluto is moving through the sign of Capricorn until 2023, destroying and recreating as its heart pleases with the nature of its destruction based on how grand the nature of the delusion really is !

Pluto is the smallest planet in our solar system, discovered on Feb 18th 1930. Its astrological traits were given to it, with reference to what was happening in the world at the time of its discovery. The inner planets have been known about and mused upon since Babylonian times, however these ‘outer planets’, upon discovery have been given their meaning. Why ? because the reason we discovered it is to allow us to look at these themes in a bigger scale in society and in our selves. The concept of information being given to us – when we are ready to digest it, is not a new one and has been a thread which has woven its way through cultural evolution and the esoteric since file sharing began. Pluto the furthest planet from the Sun and takes 248 years to go completely around the zodiac (or move fully around the sun), meaning some of you lucky kids wont have to deal with pluto in its full force.

So what is Pluto ? What does in mean being in Capricorn ? and How does this affect you ? Why & How should we turn it into gasoline ?

Key words attributed to Pluto include:  transformation, destruction, creation, regeneration, healing, renewal, power struggles, upheaval. Pluto IS the phoenix rising from the ashes metaphor and if you’re a Scorpio or Scorpio ascendant – it is your ruler … lucky you ! But if you’re a Capricorn, have planets in Capricorn or aspects to Capricorn … its your best new, I can’t escape you friend.

Pluto (transformation, destruction, creation, regeneration, healing, renewal, power struggles, upheaval) entering Capricorn (the sign of money, government, structure, building, achievement, careers, professionals) IS a big deal especially if you ARE a Capricorn or have any planets in Capricorn or aspecting Capricorn.

Pluto Transits are when the traveling Pluto moves around hitting aspects or planets in your birth chart. Every person has their own astrological portrait and everyone’s transits are unique and they sure as hell are good to know about …. remember Nigella Lawson’s Cocaine use being tabloid fodder after she left her abusive relationship? She was doing a Pluto transit … Pluto (above traits) was conjunct (fueling this pluto energy) into her Sun (ego) … Yup ! Destruction and Rebirth kinda stuff. If you are born Dec 22 – Dec 31 you have just done Pluto, if your Jan 1 – Jan 6 you’re doing pluto as its conjoining your sun a la Nigella ! If your birthday is after these times your time is yet to come.

So now the fear of Pluto has been put into and everyone is getting a little nervous about their Capricorn aspects and placements, we need to look at all the positive attributes of traveling down the River Stix, to the underworld of self exploration, before being spat out the other side wondering what happened ? And Where the did that come from ? ( This is the goats piss being turned into gasoline bit ! )

One must understand that life is a journey of self discovery, if life was meant to be a general, homogenized experience of pairings, couplings, reproductions and job promotions,  without the high’s and lows and without challenge,  things would become very zombified and less expressive.  Without the highs and lows of feelings, emotions and transformative processes, creativity, evolution and progression would not  exist and neither would the joy of feeling and consuming artistic or evolutionary endeveours . We would be retarding ourselves to life and experience and the term personal growth would not exist. Imagery such as Snakes shedding skins, Butterfly’s coming from cocoons, Phoenix’s rising from ashes is what all this pluto transit speaks of !

What to know ?

Don’t run, don’t hide and don’t be delusional ! All aspects especially challenging aspects are good ! evolution and growth is good ! getting rid of false ideas, false idols, false ways of living IS good ! This is how we know we are alive and living truthfully, you may not want to but this Pluto transit WILL make you ! The further you are away from where you are meant to be – the bigger the impact Pluto will have.

Know what planets you have in Capricorn, or aspecting Capricorn to know what areas of yourself maybe challenged or feeling this plutonic (there is a reason it rhymes with colonic) energies, calling you to evolve. Know the house that your Capricorn is in, so you can denote what area of life this is going to be effecting you in. This will allow you to channel your focus and be more aware as to why you might be facing challenging or seeing ways for which to evolve yourself and this my friends is how you turn that magical goats piss into gasoline ! fuel for change to get the fires of evolution going !

Know that on a society level the structures around money, governance, structure and status ARE changing and as we can now see to how this is evolving us as a society – the GFC, The EU, Greece, Obama, Syria, know that by 2023 we will be looking at a new frame-work with regards to the globe and global politics.
