December 2017 Overview!

December is full of shifts and changes as we complete one major celestial cycle, readying to move into 2018 with new energy! We are moving out of fire and air energy into earth and water dominance, which represents the emotional and physical realms. And, the first 10 days of the month are super active as we make the shifts and changes needed to begin the year fresh and ready!

It really is an incredible sequence of astro events!

Buckle up…( as we have all year….. for the final month! …LOL)

 

Here is the breakdown by date:

December 1st…….Venus enters Sagittarius until 12/24

This placement of  Venus can bring greater tolerance for others, increases your desire for freedom and independence, encourages you to embark upon some kind of adventure and can renew your passion for learning. Be on the lookout for experiences during this time that can increases your optimism and hope for the future!

December 1st……Mars opposite Uranus ( influence is about a week!) This is a Major Transit!

This is a very action-oriented transit and will generate movement in some area that has been stagnant or motionless. During this first week there will likely be more than a few surprising and unexpected events taking place that are quite significant. What is especially interesting is that while this aspect can be quite erratic and destabilizing, the Mercury Saturn conjunction occurring at the same time brings a more focused grounded type of energy that can help us make sense out of what’s happening. And, even though there is some confusion and chaos at first, things will sort them selves out….Best Practice…Breathe…Stay Present…Slow Down!

December 2nd…Mercury Stations Retrograde thru December 22 while conjunct Saturn!

This is a very potent Mercury Rx for several reasons. First Mercury  is conjunction Saturn very close the Galactic Center of the Universe!

( Side note…..When so close to the Galactic Center, it helps us to establish a connection to the higher realms which are generally difficult to reach. During these few days the energy which emanates from the GC is connected through Saturn and Mercury, and  may be more noticeable . Insights and solutions are certainly possible during this time, but you must bypass the way you normally think and process things. Open your inner vision and listen with your inner ears while you focus on the GC . This creates a gateway for reaching higher truths, insights, and experiences! And, you may be called to start over in some key area of your life! The universe may be handing you a new agenda that aligns with a purpose higher than the one you’ve been aligned with and living by. Also, know that whatever is being presented now is something that you are capable of doing.You will now be able to tap into your own ancient wisdom that you may not have  known you had available. And, you may have a soulful type of experience where you remember in great detail  something of great importance that helps you  understand your true purpose for this incarnation. Trusting yourself is a key to receiving such information. This info can help you  make sense of a lot of things that have occurred in your life!!

This is SOOO  exciting!

Take the time to be with this energy!

There will probably be some significant announcements, conversations, realizations, decisions, meetings , etc  taking place the few days around this station. Whatever the topics, they will have a significant impact over time. This certainly includes what is going on in the world and being reported in the media. In general, there is a tone of seriousness in the air suggesting that some of the issues at hand warrant our attention and scrutiny. It is very important to be honest and come from the highest integrity possible during the 3 weeks Mercury is retrograde. And because this station takes place while kissing Saturn, the message is clear:                                 Slow down, don’t hurry making decisions, and take the time to listen to yourself and others carefully!

Here are a few suggestions to do…or not….during this RX.

*Avoid signing contracts or making verbal agreements during this 3-week period.

*Check and recheck ALL your plans…travel, meetings,gatherings, even if you set them up way in advance!

*Don’t ASSUME others know the arrangements, they are under this influence as well…a quick text/call goes a long way!

*This is the perfect time to REFLECT on 2017. It has been a doosy! What changed…. what goals did you accomplish? Have you gained some new perspectives to bring with you into 2018? What are you definitely leaving in 2017?  What lessons were learned?

*It is the perfect time to RE:

Rethink your plans, Reconsider your options or ideas that may have re-presented themselves as of late. Revamp your mission statement or Bio, or resume, Rework your budget…..RELAX, spend downtime!….There is a lot to digest as we end this year.

December 2nd….Jupiter Trines Neptune! This will be felt for a few weeks before and after!

This is the 1st of 3 very beneficial aspects between Jupiter (expansion + blessings) and Neptune (our spiritual connection!) And, it is quite interesting that this is occurring at the same time as the alignment with the Galactic Center.! We have help from the Cosmos!!!!

*This energy brings a highly spirited and alchemical energy that can transmute old patterns that  have been blocking the higher energies.

*Gateways and portals are opened allowing for some very powerful mystical energies and downloads to enter.

*Opportunities for deepening your spiritual connections, understandings, and experiences occur.

*You gain clarity as to how your life wants to expand to include your vision, while also bringing insights and ideas for how to begin! This is best accessed thru downtime, meditation, and just BEING!

December 3rd…..Full Moon Super Moon in Gemini at 7:47 AM @ 11.40 *

Full moons occur when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth. This energy tends to be more intense,emotional, and impassioned! (This one will be for sure!) Usually the truth about something that has perplexed or confused us may be reveled or discovered in the days surrounding the full moon.Areas getting emphasized now: Your thoughts and attitudes, communications, education and learning,the media and events taking place in foreign countries. Also how you take in and assimilate new information! There is so much going on astrologically now, and it all impacts the mental body! Your conversations, how you communicate, and your thought processes are highlighted. It is important to discern what is true from what is not, while being open to what was true for you in the past many no longer be so now! More info will be on the Full Moon page, and we are doing a beautiful Full Moon Ride and Ceremony on Sunday! Details and sign up are on the Events Page.Please RSVP so we can reserve your horse!

December 9th….Mars enters Scorpio until 1/26/18

Mars  is the impassioned Spiritual Warrior  in the sign of Scorpio! Your desire to discover what is really going on is strong, and you won’t be satisfied with anything less than the truth! Hidden agendas and secrets come forth and abuse and misuse of power continues to get attention. It is very important to come from integrity during this time. Overall this energy brings intense emotions to the forefront which have the potential to increase strong feeling and reactions. Mars in Scorpio can increase sensuality and magnetic attraction. You may be prone towards feeling irritable or impatience! Best Practice….Breathe before you react….look for a win win before you slay your opponent!

December 12th…. Sun conjunct Mercury

This will be a day of big news where something important is revealed. Personally, a significant realization occurs. Pay attention to conversations, what you read, new ideas, ect!

 

December 17th…New Moon in Sagittarius

New Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in the same sign and marks the beginning of a new 28.5-day Lunar Cycle. It is an opportunity to hit the reset button…and begin again! The areas getting attention now are new teachings and bodies of study, teachers and mentors, and travel that expands your understanding. This new moon invites you to expand your mind to include new possibilities as well as new ideas, opinions and perspectives…all leading to interesting new options and opportunities! Your insights at this time can shift your priories and move you in new directions! There will be 5 planets in Sagittarius at the  time of this New Moon which makes this an especially powerful energy bringing an emphasis to your ethics, morals and beliefs. It is very important to align with those things that are true for you and that honor your authentic self!

Saturn is just about to leave Sagittarius after being here for 2.5 years . Take a look at what you have learned and how you have grown, especially in regards to your spiritual life and journey. This is an ending of a cycle.

More details and your ceremony and  will be posted on the New Moon page soon.

 December 19th……… Saturn enters Capricorn  from 12/19 -3/21/2020! This is a major transit!

When an outer planet (Saturn,Jupiter,Uranus,Neptune, or Pluto) changes signs, it signals a cosmic shift of agendas! Crossroads are arrived at, priorities change, new options need to be considered and different directions are embarked upon in accord with the planet and sign involved. Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn, and when this happens (planet in ruling sign) its influence is amplified and has a stronger impact. Saturn rules  father time and cycles, Karmic cycles and patterns. For Karmic cycles to complete, we must first learn the lessons they were intended to to teach ( lessons and challenges,) The concept of “we reap what we sow” is  clearly Saturn in nature and application.Saturn also rules government, its structures, agendas, laws, and all things related to government. Limits are reached when Saturn is a key player…..the saying “enough is enough” is a good motto as is “this to shall pass”  There is much to discuss here and I will be addressing  this influence on my 2018 year overview, but  for now, here are a few key words that will be the guiding principles for the next 2.5 years!

Common sense,security, order, rhythm, integrity, honesty, tenacity, perseverance, determination, goals, your intentions,work, career, purpose, practicality  and simplicity!

I also must note,  when a planet shifts signs, the energy if felt more strongly ( like entering a room, there is a commotion as you take off your coat, hat, and get comfortable in your new environment!)…..you will feel and notice the shift as it is happening!

December 21st….The Sun enters Capricorn….Winter Solstice!

This day marks the official start of winter. A special time to honor and prepare for a change of seasons!

December 22nd…Mercury Stations Direct! Yippee!

This is a good time to consider what took place in the last 3 weeks….

*Did you come to realize something significant during this time?

* Have you gained a new perspective?

*Did you encounter or talk to someone that left an impression that gave you a new insight?

*Is it time to let go of an obligation or project….or embark on a new  adventure or go in a new direction?

* And, make sure you check and recheck any plans or arrangements you made during the last 3 weeks!

December 23rd….Venus enters Capricorn until 1/17

While Venus is in Capricorn it brings up  issues such as commitment, loyalty, dedication and perseverance in all your relationships.You may find that your sense of security and stability are tested and reviewed.  Also, it is important to align your values with your partners, as well as your future goals. One thing to watch during this time..becoming too cold or emotionally unavailable!.

December 25th….Venus Conjunct Saturn on Christmas Day

This conjunction on Christmas day brings the desire to honor tradition and what is sacred about the meaning of this holiday.

As you make plans, try to include those things that have lasting value and that truly matter to you, your family, and your friends!

December 27th….Mars trines Neptune ….thru 1/18

A beautiful way to end the month! This benevolent aspect makes it easier than usual to merge your personal will with your divine will , while soothing over conflicts, mending fence and generally creating an atmosphere of peace and good will in ways and places that are oftentimes difficult to achieve!

Wow! What an extraordinary month and ending to an extraordinary year! In the midst of all the chaos in the world, remember, we are in a revolution…..a time of change at every level of our country, government,communities, and our selves!

2018 is a year where we roll up our sleeves and work hard at rebuilding our world….from the bottom up, based on our core values as human beings! If we work together, and can build a world that works for everyone!

Have a wonderful, reflective holiday season…..rest up…..we will be busy in 2018!

Stay Inspire….Connected….Empowered

Peace and Blessings

November 2017 Overview!

As we enter November, the energy of Scorpio is strong as the Sun, Jupiter, Mercury are all meeting up!

Brace yourself……secrets that have been hidden will continue to unravel! It is very much like entering a dark room, and turning on the light! You can see clearly who and  what is in the room, and what needs to get cleaned up or thrown out!

And, significant energy shifts are at hand as the cosmos ready’s us to complete one major cycle, and begin a new one.

Additionally, we have the first of 3 very beneficial  trines between Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces in early December,(ramping up this month). The other two meetings are in May and August 2018.

This is quite a significant influence! It is a highly spirited and alchemical energy that can transmute old patterns that block the higher energies from expressing at this level. Gateways and portals are opened allowing for some very powerful mystical energies to enter, and there will be many opportunities to deepen your spiritual connections, understandings and experiences!

This is a great quote for these times: “You cannot fight darkness. You have to light up, and the darkness will disappear!~

This is a great theme for this month!

Here are the details….

 November 3rd…..Full Moon in Taurus /Scorpio 10:30 PM PDT

Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth and in opposite signs of the Zodiac. The intention is to seek balance, bring light to that which needs to be released, and integrate the energies of the two different signs. Full moons usually intensify our emotions. And this one, in particular will be quite intense, since it is in the energy of Scorpio/Taurus. The truth about something that has perplexed or confused us may be revealed or discovered in the days surrounding the FM.

Areas getting emphasized now:

*Sensuality and sexuality

*Your relationship to abundance and or lack; finances and especially those that involve others

*Is your spending aligned with your budget?

*Are you being possessive or obsessive in matters of love, sex or money?

Best Practice..

Emphasize ways to build a life that has both a sense of security ($) and  meaning (emotionally)

Rekindle or rediscover what your true passion is..what lights you up?

Look at what you value.

Now more that ever we must live by our personal Values…and this Taurus Full moon helps assist up in the!

And, emotions will run hot!!!!! Pause before you lose your temper….it will all work out….mostly, practice being  kind and compassionate!

( Lots More details on the Full Moon Page)

 

November 11th Saturn Trines Uranus 3rd and final time!

Although this is exact on the 11th, we will be feeling the impact of this energy most of the month. The first time these two planets came together was last December, the second in March, and after November, they won’t create a trine again until 2047!!! So, as you see, this is a very BIG DEAL,  let’s take advantage of this empowering energy and complete the cycle!

To explain, Saturn and Uranus are very different energy’s with very different cosmic agenda’s.Saturn rules things like structure, patterns, the rules, limitations, boundaries and life lessons. Uranus is unpredictable, unconventional, very dynamic and changeable, and brings chaos and intrigue into our lives.  Usually, when these two meet up there is a battle of old vs. new, predictable vs. exciting, and order vs. chaos. Now, with this third and final aspect, the opportunity is to integrate both energies combining the best of both for our benefit.

As you review, here are a few things you may have experienced and learned from this aspect in the past year.

*Realizing that YOU are personally responsible for creating your own life story.

*Seeing that there are times when limitations and boundaries are needed and times when being open and willing to change are appropriate.

*Overall this rare influence has sought to help us establish some sense of order and security even during challenging times,teaching us  to release fear and embrace new adventures.

Combined, these two planets can help form the bridge between your ideals and reality and assist  in working to bring your dreams into manifestation. So keep trusting Divine timing, and pay attention to  coincidences!

This influence is especially potent in the middle two weeks of the month when opportunities for you to establish a new foundation (Saturn) that brings a sense of greater freedom, vitality and aliveness(Uranus) into your life!

November 18th New Moon in Scorpio at 26* @3:43 AM PT

A New Moon occurs when both the Sun and Moon are in the same sign at the same degree, and marks the beginning of a new cycle.It is the perfect time to set thee stage for new relationships, projects and cycles, both on the emotional level as well as the physical.

Areas getting additional emphasis now: the life mysteries of birth, death and rebirth; power and misuse of power,  self empowerment,things that you are magnetically drawn to, and search for deeper meanings and true authenticity.

It will be a powerful time of transformation…

More details will be posted on the New Moon page shortly, and please join us for a powerful New Moon ceremony,meditation, sound bath, and astro overview at the AURA SHOP on Main Street from 7 to 9PM

Nov 22 Neptune Stations Direct

Mystical and elusive Neptune stationed retrograde on June 16th and is stationing direct on Nov 22. While Neptune was retrograde these past few months, you may have rediscovered something valuable related to your spiritual path, such as a spiritual practice or body of study. If so, now is a good time to incorporate it into your life.

During the days around this station there is a portal—-or vortex—to other realms and the veils between worlds are thin, allowing for the energies to  transfer more easily. This is especially true during this station as Jupiter in Scorpio is  magnifying the energies around this event!

Here are things you may notice during these few days….

*You may feel tired, disoriented and or confused.

*You may feel spacey, un-grounded, or off center.

*If you are sensitive you may be feeling psychically flooded and overwhelmed.

*Some type of mystical experience could occur.

*Your intuition will be especially strong and likely to be a great help during this time!

Best Practice during the Neptune Station

*Slow down….rest more…and be gentle with yourself

*Drink plenty of water….hang out near water and listen to the waves!

*Spend time in your devotional practice…pray, meditate, read inspirational readings

*Take a break from it all….go to the movies, read a novel, treat yourself in some way!

November 21st…the Sun shifts into Sagittarius at 7:04 PM until 12/21

When the Sun moves into Sagittarius, we feel the urge to expand, move, learn, travel and explore more. As we do, new perspectives and experiences are ushered in bringing a renewed sense of purpose and freedom! And, all the Scorpio energy will begin to subside, leaving us renewed to establish a new direction, optimism,faith, and enthusiasm!!

And…a few notes……

This has been quite a challenging year, and in those challenging moments, we’ve gained insights, learned to surrender, and have taken new directions that are more inline with our heart and soul’s calling. This is good, even though it has been difficult.

As we enter into December….there are several cosmic shifts, setting up  2018, (which should feel much different than 2017.)

Dec 2-22….Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius. So, take the time to RE-VIEW your beliefs, your goals, your dreams for the future, all the changes you have made. Also, double check all your travel plans and book early, plan for delays, ect. Also, if you are gifting, shop early if possible.

Dec 19th….Saturn enters Capricorn, its ruling sign, for the next 2.5 years. This should have a stabilizing effect on us all. Saturn and Capricorn are about setting structures, doing the hard work, rebuilding areas in our life to support the future we choose! More on this next month!

And my last word, as we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, please take a moment to give thanks for what you do have, your friends, your families, and loved ones. And say an extra prayer for World Peace!

Thank you all for reading….sending you much Love and many Blessings…and a Heart Felt  Holiday Season full of Joy, and Happiness! Stay

Inspired….Connected…..Empowered

Best,

Shelley

October 2017 Overview

Happy Birthday Libra!

(And, sorry for this late post….life is moving quite rapidly with many complicated situations )

We have been through some serious Cosmic energy the last two months! And September continued to be wild and intense! Luckily, we have the wonderful balancing energy of Libra transiting the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars bringing a bit of piece and calm, allowing us a chance to  catch our breath  and  restore a sense of order in our lives! The other big news this month  is the shift of Jupiter into the sign of Scorpio on October 10th!

For the past year, Jupiter, called the Great Benefactor, has been in the sign of Libra. Every 13 months, he shifts signs, and will be entering the powerful, magnetic sign of Scorpio on October 10th, where he will remain until Nov 8th 2018!

Jupiter’s presence in the  mysterious and deep sign of Scorpio will be impacting us in several areas of life, having a particular strong significance spiritually! This planet will bring a powerful alchemical frequency, placing a greater emphasis on the dynamics involving planetary evolution with the potential to enhance and enrich our own personal spiritual journey! With Jupiter here, the Truth will be reveled! Just smoothing over things is not going to cut it this next year. We now are willing and ready to take that deep dive below the surface to find the  facts and truth. And, FYI, Scorpio deals with corruption,  and misuse of power at the lower level. So, the headlines in the media are bound to thrive in the next year as we as a country look to balance and deepen our moral compass and what we will or won’t allow at this point in our evolution.

A few other areas getting attention:

*The Laws of Attraction and Magnetism will be potent this year! Emotions and feelings run hot! It is very important that you are mindful of where you place your attention as thoughts, and images can manifest much more quickly……..instant Karma is at work!

*A powerful cleansing and purging …..on all levels!

*Jupiter in Scorpio will bring profound insights to you and the issues in your life though the language of symbols, metaphors and imagery. This will assist you in seeing things from a new perspective!

*What is fake, superfluous or no longer relevant falls away to be replaced by what is authentic!

And, Jupiter in Scorpio can bring you many gifts and blessings!

Here are some positive things to look for:

One of its cosmic agendas while here is to help you establish a greater connection to truly love what matters

to you and your soul!

  • Being able to better grasp and utilize your innate knowing and further develop your intuition!
  • Realizing and manifesting your higher purpose
  • Gaining new and life-changing perspectives about your authentic and true nature
  • Finding it easier to manifest by tapping into the Universal Laws of Magnetic Attraction!
  • Finding the courage, strength an power deep within. You are able to have the courage to ” Do It”…whatever IT is!
  • And finally, being able to shift old patterns and release long held fears and limitations that have kept you from receiving your good and thriving!!!

Remember….Scorpio is about change, transformation, rebirth, truth, power,connecting to source, intuition…(the high vib)……. and lower frequencies of corruption, fear, panic, worry, abuse……All being amplified in Jupiter…..

And, you get to Choose….the High Vibe of powerful Transformation, or the low vibe of corruption,fear, worry, ect!

 Now on to the key dates to take note of:

Oct 10th,11th, and 12th……Mars squares Saturn

When these two meet up it can be a battle of the wills. Saturn can restrict or curtail the movement and expression of Mars, not something Mars deal with well!

So, this is a volatile influence that can bring up feelings of anger, frustration and irritation. Sparks are flying and things are said ( or done) that can add fuel to the fire. It is so important to hold in check impulsive reactions to things that upset you before you’ve had a chance to calm down.

                                                                                  Two things go a long what now:

                                                                        Slowing down and using common sense!

That said, it is likely that whatever gets triggered now ( personally or otherwise) has been a longstanding issue that needs to be addressed…just not in the heat of the current astro environment. And, with the shift of energy in Jupiter, it may magnify the impact of  encounters and events.

At more personal levels, you may be feeling at odds with yourself in some non-nondescript way. Maybe you know you need to do something but just don’t want to —or maybe your are feeling overwhelm by the” to do” list. Both are valid…so just set your priorities, and create realistic expectations!

And know that this grouchy transit will pass…..so do your best not to over react!!!

October 19th….New Moon in Libra @12:13 PM

New Moons  occur every 28.5 days when the Sun and Moon are in the same sign, and mark the beginning of a new cycle. It is the perfect time to review where you are and where you wish to go in the coming month. What gets extra emphasis now are the areas that Libra rules…… Relationships, harmony, beauty, compromise, diplomacy, collaborative efforts,contacts, agreements, legalities, and the law. Usually, this is a very calm New Moon, however, Uranus, the Rebel Planet is in direct opposition to the NM. So, it will have  an unpredictable influence which may have a dramatic impact. Uranus seeks independence and freedom, so these will also be important themes! Unexpected and abrupt shifts of energy may create a feeling that something is “UP” but you may know know what it is..yet!

There are two additional aspects with this New Moon…..Mercury  conjunct Jupiter in the mysterious energy of Scorpio, which may bring up intriguing thoughts, messages and interesting conversations. Pay close attention to the subtleties for clues and insights!

And, Mars is inconjunct Uranus….again…..impulsive energy making it very important to slow down and not over react! Remember, others are feeling this energy too!

Please join us for a live New Moon ceremony, meditation, astro overview, and a beautiful crystal bowl cleansing with our amazing , Shanna, back from Oregon with her new beautiful baby!!!  Sign up and details aurashop.com

Also, I promise to have your DIY NM ceremony shortly for those who can’t join us!

Oct 23 to Nov 5th–Sun-Mercury-Jupiter in Scorpio trining Neptune in Pisces

This is a very mystical combo of astro influences that will bring a mysterious, other-worldly vibe to the air, perfect timing  since this is the week/time of Halloween, All Saints Day. The energy is likely to feel very surreal so don’t be surprised if you are a bit off kilter and ,  on the other side, it can be a most magical time when awe-inspiring events take place. Spend some quiet  nature time, listen in, and just try to relax and enjoy this transit. Life is moving quite rapidly. Our best offense is to stay grounded, centered, and don’t buy into the political drama. Remember, we are in a revolution, changing the very fabric of our world. Prayers and light are needed as we go thru this very challenging transformation, and Jupiter in Scorpio is here to assist on the Cosmic level!

Stay

Inspired….Connected….Empowered!

Peace and Blessings

Shelley

September…..It’s Not over yet!!!!

The profound August Eclipses are still reverberating at a very high level. This Eclipse energy ushered in new frequencies that we are all still adjusting to and will be for a few weeks. August is a pivot month for sure, both personally and collectively! It is time to choose, and with the help of Virgo detail energy, put a plan into action!

There are 3 areas in particular that will capture our focus in September.

*Expect to be shown areas of your life that require attention and or change.

*New avenues, pathways, and options will be coming  into your life.

*Gaining clarity about the potentials ready to enter your life ( the 3rd and final Jupiter-Uranus opposition)

You may already be experiencing such things and wondering where to go next!

Details will begin to unfold as the  practical Virgo energy helps us give FORM to new ideas!

Key dates for this months intense energy…

Sept 1st-6th

There is an exceptionally unusual series of events that will trigger the Total Solar Eclipse energy of August 21st! Mercury in retrograde and Mars (the planet of action) are conjunct (kissing) at the  exact degree of the SE point at 28 Leo for several days.Mercury Stations Direct at this degree, followed by the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo on the 6th! This first week of September will be quite volatile, intense, and has the potential for important personal revelations and experiences! Stay present and pay attention to all details occurring!

Sept 2nd…Mercury, still in Retrograde, hits the exact SE degree of 28 Leo and will remain at this degree as it slows down and prepares for its forward movement on the 5th. Expect significant communications and announcements during this week, involving the government, authority, and world leaders on a national platform.Some things that have been in the works for a while behind closed doors could be revealed! Please note, misunderstandings and miscommunications may occur which could have serious consequences.

Tread lightly on sensitive topics ….and check and recheck your plans….the entire week!

Mars,(Planet of Action, Anger) also hits  28 Leo. He can embolden those who feel passionate and angry( the lower energy) while bringing courage and enthusiasm  (the high vibe)! Best practice, SLOW DOWN…pause before you respond….both physically and verbally! Look at possible win win solutions!

Mars acts as a CATALYST for those situations that have been on the sidelines, just waiting for a trigger! This applies to various areas, personally, politically, globally, ect. Both Mercury and Mars are trining (a positive aspect) the dynamic and unpredictable planet Uranus, which may help to direct the flow of this highly charged energy in new  directions. Look for truly unusual answers and solutions and ask lots of questions!

You may get some very innovation answers and insights. Please note that the mix of energies is quite intense for a few days….but it will subside by the 6th.So, again, call on your Spiritual Warrior and take the High road! Ask, “What would LOVE do”

Sept 5th…Mercury Stations Direct at 28 Leo…Continued reactivation of the Eclipse!

This is a powerful station that can have meaningful impact on your life. It is very important to stay focused on what is TRUE for you while considering any New Options that may arise. Give some consideration to what has taken place in your life during the past 3 weeks while Mercury was RX. It may provide insights  helping you to formulate your next move.

A few questions to consider….

  • Did I come to realize something significant in the last 3 weeks?
  • Have a gained new perspectives?
  • Did I encounter or talk to someone that left an impression or gave me new insights?
  • Is it time to let go on an obligation or project……and embark on a new venture or direction?
  • Lastly…check any plans, meetings, or arrangements you made during the retrograde…check the accuracy and verify with those involved!

Please wait until  the 7th or 8th if at all possible to put your plans into action!!!!

Sept 6…Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo @14 Pisces at 12:03 AM

Full Moons occur when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth and in opposite signs of the zodiac. The influence of a Full moon is often felt/experienced as an expanded awareness of ones own reality in some way. The overall energy is intense, emotional and impassioned!

September 22 The Fall Equinox ….1:02 PM

The Autumn Equinox is when day and night are equal in length again. The sun rises due East and sets due west. It is the entry into the sign of Libra, the Scales, when dark and light balance.

Equinoxes are special events, and mark the changing of the seasons. Because of the shift and rotation of the earths axis, the veil between worlds is thin. It is the perfect time to give thanks  and  harvest the seeds we planted in Spring, and put in motion our intentions for the next 3 months. This energy is very much like a New Moon….a new cycle, 3rd quarter!  And since it is so close to the New Moon  this year….our intentions and new directions get  double power!

Take time today to honor the passing of the seasons, and set plans for your next 3 months with love, joy, and fun!

September 27th…the 3rd and final Jupiter-Uranus opposition!

This is the perfect way to end the month and the dynamic Eclipse energy!

The aspect will last about 10 days, and is the 3rd and final opposition. (The first was on 12.26.16, the 2nd on 3.2.17, so take a moment to review what was happening on those days.)

As the 3rd and final opposition commences, it is a culmination of somethings in your life that have been brewing. This  exciting and dynamic influence  asks us to discover more about what FREEDOM TO BE  would look and feel like. It is  a “Cosmic Agenda”   encouraging us to explore  deep longings and innate potential! The urge for freedom of thought and movement is strong!  Some part of you seeks to express your truth in new and bold ways…..the wake up call is loud and clear at this time!

The expansive nature of of Jupiter combined with the experimental, innovative nature of Uranus  sets the prefect stage for positive change to occur. Pay careful attention to what is coming your way now as it may represent and or lead you to a new path that has been 9 months in the making!!!

In this process of expansion, you may find you’re out of your comfort zone…if so, consider what you can gain from moving towards this new direction and what you would lose if you don’t give it a try!!!

To engage this energy simply say “yes” and see what happens next while also considering what that might be like!

Be open to:

*Higher truths and significant new insights that can change things quickly.

*Lucky energy is released…pay attention to your hunches and inner promptings.

*Keep asking: What is my higher self trying to tell me?

*Be on the lookout for something to take place that makes it quite clear that things really are changing fro the better…especially in your personal life!!!!

 

Wow….quite a wrap aspect  of the most dynamic post – total eclipse energy!!!

The Cosmos is Really here to assist us thru  this dynamic changing time, for good,

helping and guiding us move into our highest  creative self- expression!

Go for it…..Have the Courage to Follow your Heart…..BE that expression of Love, Light, and Truth! The time is Now!!!

Here is a powerful quote from Gothe, one of my favorites:

Whatever you can do

Or dream you Can,

Begin it!

Boldness has genius, power and Magic in it.

BEGIN IT NOW

And one more I love and feel is appropriate for now….

To change one’s life:

*Start immediately

*Do it flamboyantly

*Do exceptions

William James

Stay Inspired….Connected….Empowered

August Overview….Eclipse Month!!!

Happy Birthday Leo!

This month is set to be the most dynamic and  pivotal of the year! It has been a tension filled few months….all  leading up to this month of change! Eclipses bring sudden, unexpected, and sometimes dramatic news! So, buckle in, this month the Cosmos is going to be very busy helping us all make adjustments and changes in our personal and global world!  Everyone will be effected in some way because we all have Aquarius and Leo in our charts, but those of us who have the Sun, Moon, or Ascendent in these signs will be effected more energetically!

And, for sure…..this is a month of change!

Best practice, plan extra time, try to relax each day, meditate, and stay grounded!

 DO NOT MAKE ANY FINAL DECISIONS until the middle of September…. there are many moving parts all month!

The most challenging part of the month is the UNEXPECTED element. We all dislike surprises, so please, stay calm, and just allow the month to unfold, all will begin to make sense in September!

Below is a recap of the aspects day by day. I suggested you mark your calendars, so you are prepared. And most importantly, this moth is all about the Leo energy….  Love, Creative Self Expression, Courage, and finding your personal Superpower!

Think of this month as a Journey of the Heart! In each situation ask “What would LOVE do?

Remember, there has never been, nor will there ever be, anyone else who commands your singular array of talents, strengths and experiences! Your mission this month is to be true to your yourself! Be guided by the wisdom of your HEART rather than your family or culture around you! YOU are the creator! Your thoughts, words, and deeds shape your reality and the course of your world! The Solar Eclipse in Leo urges us to step into our heart directed lion power! It takes courage to be an original rather than a copy. It take strength to risk ridicule and rejection. We are on our own personal hero/heroine’s journey to discover and express our true identity!

So remember, on this journey we must have the Courage to move thru our fears of the unknown as we leave what is familiar! Along the way we encounter mentors who guide us and villains who test our resolve. We are forced to face our worst fears, and in doing so, we are transformed and empowered!

August is about aligning with our higher self, and our divine destiny!

Remember, all the cosmic dynamics are here to assist  us in bring our gifts and talents to the world in a way that

best expresses love!

The Leo line up this month is here to awaken us to live in and  embody HEART-CENTERED consciousness!

Now is the time, our world desperately needs our unique, creative expression, leadership, heart and LOVE!

Here are the dates to mark and a short recap of the energetic influence!

August 2nd…Uranus stations Retrograde at 28* Aries thru 1.2.18

The Rebel, Eccentric, Freedom planet  as it stations retrograde will cause chaos the first few days of the month!  We are being asked to look at our own personal freedom! Insights and idea come from out of the blue, so have a notebook handy and jot down all info you receive. Highly recommended….plan extra time and don’t rush, stay in a calm state!

 August 4…Jupiter squares Pluto at 17 * Capricorn

The planet of expansion challenges the planet of power and change. Again, this is is about change…in a big way! Best practice, work to create a win win for all involved in your disagreements and negotiations!

August 7th…Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius /Leo 15*

Themes  of what is best for our world vs. how you can bring your unique talent to  change it for the better! This is a super powerful full moon lunar eclipse. Emotions will be intense! Some element of your life that is not working will end….making way for a new beginning!

August 12 …Mercury stations retrograde at 11* Virgo thru September 5th

Remember, Mercury has us rethink, review, relax, and renew. Best practice….do  not make any final decision on the information and insights you are receiving. Keeping a journal to jot down ideas will be helpful when the dust settles in September and directions finally become clear again!

August 21…Powerful Dynamic New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo @ 28*

This is the second New Moon in Leo….very rare….so a new beginning is definite!!! If your birthday is within a week of this date, your life absolutely will take you in a New Direction of the Heart!!  I will be posting more details shortly on the New Moon page!

August 25th….Saturn station direct @ 21 Sagittarius

Work projects that have been stalled start to move forward! I advise waiting till after the 5th of September before you are full speed ahead….Mercury will bring a few more insights to empower you!!

 

This is the most dynamic, energetic month of the year! It is NOT BAD! So please don’t read this and freak out!!!!!

The Cosmos is shaking us up a bit….to get us on the right soul path!
