New Moon Solar Eclipse in Tarus Monday April 28th

Greetings Cosmic Artist!

Wow….What an amazing power packed few weeks it has been. That revolving door under the Grand Cross has blown open in new and dynamic ways! It is  exciting, exhilarating, and a twinge scary for sure! And now, with the Grace of Cosmic Energy,  we have the wonderful opportunity to anchor  all that has occurred into a super powerful, grounding, and abundant New Moon  Solar Eclipse in Taurus Monday evening at 11:14 PM PDT!taurus-zodiac-sign-profile

FYI…… a Solar Eclipse occurs  twice a year when the Sun, Moon, and Earth align precisely enough to block the constant stream of solar radiation. In this  brief moment, the energetic grids  supporting our planet get taken off line and are re-coded and re-booted. Old programs are erased, and new possibilities become available. This is why a Solar eclipse is such a  powerful New Moon……… it is  signaling major endings and beginnings, completions and initiations. And, in the wake of this dynamic  Grand Cross energy, it is a gift to begin anew with our intentions, dreams, and  infinite possibilities using Taurus energy.  Be sure to spend time this Sunday and Monday during the Balsamic phase of the moon ( the most mystical time of the month) contemplating all that has transpired and culminated  in the last few weeks . Choose to let go of what has ended. It is NOW OVER.  Vision, embrace, and activate all your  new possibilities  presented  this month in  a powerful New Moon  ceremony on Monday night!spiritual-crossing

Now on to the details of  our very important New Moon ceremony  in Taurus. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus.Think for a moment about the Goddess Venus and you will start to get the flavor of this New Moon Energy.   Love, Beauty, Money, Sensual Pleasure, Contentment, Perseverance, Patience, Relationships, And Self-worth….all grounding qualities  into your  NEW PATH! Don’t hold back in this ceremony….Create and Vision a BEAUTIFUL VENUS directed life!

Cosmic Currents…Week of the Grand Cross!

if it doesnt challeneg it does changeThis is the week that life changes in a dynamic way! The Cosmic energy coming in to assist  us in our transformation  is profound, powerful, and absolutely off the charts! The Universe definitely has something in store for us all! The very best way to ride this wave, (April 20th to the 23rd,) is to hunker down,  strap in, and go WITH the flow! This is an exciting time. We are living history. What occurs  will set us free and put us on a new path. In a week like this one coming up, our best practice is to STAY AWAKE, AWARE, and CONSCIOUS  ( no sleep walking allowed! )

My good friend Terri forwarded this info from  Nick Newman, Astrologer.  I LOVE the great, easy visual and explanation.

I think this will give you a perfect feeling and understanding  of this week coming up!

“Temporarily stuck in a revolving door”      revolving door

“When you enter into a revolving door, you enter at your own risk. You have  to move  to get  out on the other side or you get stuck in the merry go round! But what happens if the power goes out, the doors stop, and you get stuck inside? Look at the picture and you see the Grand Cross.  Next week we are inside that revolving door, under the cross, waiting for it to move to so we can go out the other side!

What would you do if stuck in the revolving door? Panic? Bang on the Glass? Try to break the frame?

Best Practice…..Stay calm and be ready to move! Don’t get caught in the illusion that everything is stuck. What waits for you on the  other side of the door once the power is restored?

What waits is what you imagine and plan to be waiting for you. Instead of panicking during this period, use it as a timeout to vision and create. Soon the doors of change will be moving ( the 20th -23rd)   Pluto, Jupiter, Mars, and Uranus are collecting  energy, so the power will be back on! Big time! ”

Also,  most interesting, that as  as we enter into this most high Holy Season,  we celebrate the  Death and worldloveResurrection of  Jesus, one of the most powerful Spiritual leaders and teachers that walked our planet.

There  certainly is a Grand Cosmic plan for this Grand Cross to be occurring at such an important date and holiday.

There are no accidents here!

Our old way of life is dead, and we can resurrect our new life and direction anyway we choose.

What will you choose to create for you, your family and our planet?learning

Who will you BE during this time of challenge and change?

I invite you to act  from a place of self EMPOWERMENT. Feel the fear and move forward anyway. Let go of all the old believes that hold you hostage.

This is the message….. for us all.

Scary, exciting, invigorating, and for sure, perfect timing!

For a more personal view of how this will effect you, I invite you to contact me for a reading.

 

Sending much love and light!

Stay Inspired….Connected…..Empowered!

Peace and Blessings

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse April 15th

yogapose withmoonApril 15th early, 12:42 AM we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra @ 25 degrees. It  is bound to bring out all relationship issues,  hidden agendas, new illuminating insights,  endings,  and changes! (Please read my post on Eclipses for more details.) The  energy of a Lunar Eclipse has a longer impact than Full Moons , so it is important to do two things in particular  right now.

1. Pay careful attention to what is occurring in the relationship and partnership arenas of your life.

Are there conflicts or disagreements needing to be resolved…is the level of commitment mutual?

2. Avoid extremes and  over reacting  or being impulsive. What you do now will have ramifications into the future. This eclipse has a karmic dynamic to it, so keeping mindful is of the utmost importance.

Since we have a Mercury/Uranus conjunction occurring , information will be coming in quickly and as flashes of insights! You will want to digest it and understand it, so best practice is to pause…. give yourself time and space to work thru the info you  are receiving!

Emotions will be running high. Try not to point fingers, it is too easy to BLAME someone else!

And Remember….There is a Higher Purpose to all that is Happening.

Practice Balance….The main them of this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!

(Please be sure to read the weekly post in addition to the Eclipse doc)change next exit

 

Stay Inspire….Connected…..Empowered!

Cosmic Currents April 13- 19th

horse full moonThis will be a very powerful, dynamic week! There are several potent events taking place in a very short period of time. These energies will be merging into each other, creating its own  type of a an  alchemy, and certainly adventurous week!

Let me break it down…..

April 14th. The week begins  with Pluto, the powerful planet of transformation, turning retrograde thru 9/22. What Pluto RX will be doing is taking us deeper into  the  issues  we are currently facing. This is about feeling the fear, and moving  thru it anyway! Remember, on the other side is the Light, a new way of being in the world, and freedom from what has held us back!

Also on the 14th, Mercury, planet of communication, will be conjunct ( or kissing) Uranus, the genius energy.  Look out for wild and unpredictable events, conversations and insights. You will probably  feel like information overload,  and  may not be able to make clear decisions as your mind is running a mile a minute….so pause….let conversations and decisions rest.   Plan to take it easy and decompress in the evening. Turn off the TV and stay off line, (if you can). Really look to take care of you and your loved ones with a beautiful dinner and music.  Take a walk in the moonlight and just BE!

April 15th. summer solostice Full Moon Lunar Eclipse very early in the morning  (12:42 AM PDT) What makes this full moon eclipse so powerful is that it actives and highlights the cardinal grand cross  that will be exact next week! Full moons always illuminate something hidden, and when it is an eclipse, it is 3 x as powerful! Please read the full moon post, and check out the info on eclipses for more details and the best way to handle the energy!

As you can see, this is what I mean by blending of energy…all these aspects  be happening very close to the same time. Stay as grounded as you possibly can, don’t rush, plan extra time, and KNOW you can handle it all!  This is a very exciting time. Embrace all the changes! Pay attention to information that is revealed. It will help you make important decisions. This is the turning point. Move with GRACE!

April 17th. Amidst all this wild and crazy energy, we  are gifted with a Jupiter Venus Trine…one of the happiest, luckiest, most loving energies we can have! And, of course,  it is arriving at the perfect time. Soak it all  in! Use this most optimistic day to gain new perspective on the events of the week  and the new directions you want to take.

love heals_300178530112348_1271555408_n

April 19th….The Sun moves into Taurus! This energy with ground us, and help us to remember what is really of value and worthwhile in our lives. And, we must nurture that which we want to grow!

Spend some time this week end to be in nature,  plant flowers, walk in dirt or sand barefoot….just really ground yourself and your new direction.  Next week the grand cross will be exact, and the energy  will be  even more dynamic!

Remember….

Stay Inspired….Connected….Empowered!

                                                                                                                              

 

Eclipses

The 2014 Eclipses

eclipse nov-1

Eclipses are dramatic wild cards and some of the most powerful tools that the universe uses to get us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change. They uproot us, surprise is, and get us moving. They shake us up so that we can move from one level of maturity to another, to a higher plane, very rapidly. Eclipse wants us to change, and change we do!

Eclipses always arrive in pairs, and coincide with new moons and full moons, as solar and lunar respectively. They appear in a family of signs that are opposite  each other on the horoscope wheel and occur every 5 and ½ months for 18 to 24 months, and at that point, your transformation  in that set of signs will be complete. Once a family of signs is finished, it will not be back for 7 or 8 years.

Currently, we are in the Scorpio /Taurus polarity, transitioning from Aries/ Libra

The years that hold eclipses in your sun sign or rising sign will be vital for you and will trigger major turning points.

Eclipses bring news of life’s BIG events…engagements, marriage, promotion or career breakthroughs, starting businesses……monumental events. Eclipses mark major turning points.

Solar Eclipses tend to create new beginnings, and Lunar eclipses are more emotional for they cause final endings.

Here are a few great tips for understanding and working with eclipses.

  1. Eclipses bring random events you do not expect, didn’t know about, and ones that are completely outside of your control, yet, the event will bring vast changes to your doorstep!
  2. Eclipses speed your sense of time, and change planned timetables.
  3. The job of an eclipse is to shine a glaring ray of truth to the part of your life that is being touched, and the truth will likely arrive in a startling way. Eclipses are brilliant illuminators, revealing a truth about a condition that you never in a million years knew existed. Once you are given the info, the news can act as a catalyst to a major decision or action you will take. Most often we are shocked or surprised by the info….but, in time, it allows you to move forward with understanding.
  4. An eclipse, especially a full moon lunar eclipse, will help you see the true character of someone close…brace yourself; you may not like what you see.
  5. Take any message you hear from an eclipse as nonnegotiable and firm, and then move on!
  6. Take notice of all news and signals you get near an eclipse seriously, even if news comes as subjective and ambiguous as gossip.
  7. It is vital you guard your health if an eclipse falls within five days of your birthday, or if it falls almost exactly opposite your birthday.
  8. Eclipses almost always bring up all kinds of unexpected changes of direction if your sun, moon or a personal planet is touched.
  9. Occasionally, an important person will be eclipsed out of your life.
  10. Try not to issue ultimatums or take big actions under an eclipse….bide your time and act in a few weeks when there will be less static in the air.
  11. If an eclipse falls on your birthday, or within five days of your birthday, the year that follows will be a critical one for you.
  12. Eclipses that are in the same element (fire, air, water, or earth) as your birth sign are generally friendly and helpful.
  13. At eclipse time, keep your schedule light and elastic.. No matter what is on your agenda at the time, something else will come in to demand immediate attention.
  14. Leos tend to feel new moon solar eclipses strongly, as the sun rules Leo, and Cancers tend to feel lunar eclipse strongly as the moon rules Cancer.
  15. Once a family of signs is finished, it will not be back for 7 or 8 years.
  16. Gold star point…eclipses repeat in nearly exact degrees and signs every 19 years.
  17. Don’t be too quick to pronounce an eclipse good or bad. All eclipses have a second act.
  18. Eclipses help you do things you never thought you could do…Remember they are your friends!
