Fig Tree Personality- June 14-20, Dec 12-21

If you were born during the above dates, then you were born under the influence of the Fig Tree according to Slavic astrology.

A Fig Tree is a fig of feelings. The olives absorb the energy around them. The olive oil has to be kept closely tight in a small container because it will absorb the scents of the surroundings. You are able to understand the whole spectrum of feelings. Good natured, gentle, and sentimental, your happiness is not stable. Other people’s un-friendliness deeply hurts you and their friendliness makes you happy. In an attempt to please others, sometimes you are too strict towards yourself or your children. You are a faithful partner which makes you very attractive to the opposite sex. You appreciate the values of family and you will work hard to create happiness for them. It is family that gives you security and you need their constant appreciation. Your work is slow but consistent and with your persistency you will achieve results. You find it difficult to start your projects but once you start you do finalize them. Often you get sick during the winter so it’s important that you stay extra warm. You also have a fascination with deserts and sand dunes.

These individuals are highly introspective and spend a great deal of time psycho analyzing themselves. They do better in environments that allows them to work independently. Takes them a long time to mature- don’t come into their own until later in life. They will be interested in history and antiques.

Mars in Cancer- 2017

Mars moves into Cancer today. I happen to have my natal Mars in Cancer in my first house, so I definitely know how emotionally powerful this transit will be. This transit will be about feeling safe in your feelings. Cancer’s sanctuary lies within, while Mars domain is the real world. We will come to understand that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. The above photo is from the film ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ which follows the story of 3 orphans who have to stick together in situations that constantly threaten to tear them apart. There’s a great quote in the film that says ‘As long as we have each other, we have a home.’ The need to keep their family unit together (Cancer) became the orphans motivation to survive (Mars).

When Mars threatens to break open Cancer’s shell remember that as long as you have self-trust, vulnerability, and FAMILY, you will be safe.

The 3rd House- What & How You Speak

The third house in Astrology is known as the house of communication. This house typically shows us how we communicate.

New Moon in Gemini- “I am Unwritten”

Moonbeams- New Thought Cycle Begins!

Time- 8:44pm UT

3:44 pm ET

12:44pm PDT

4 degrees in Gemini= Stability

New Moons in Gemini are usually times of strong mental activity where new ideas begin to percolate and mercurial activities become the focus. This New Moon is very unique in that it is virtually un-aspected. The skies are quiet during this lunation indicating that something is about to begin. It is in silence and solitude that a-ha moments come to us and inner reflection can take hold.

The planetary ruler of this moon is Mercury who is in the sign of Taurus. Mercury in Taurus becomes quieter and more reflective. Mercury is also sextile Neptune indicating the need to clear the mind of illusions through spiritual practices such as meditation, yoga, and tantras.

This New Moon is about clearing the mind in order to focus the mind. We each have a blank page before us waiting to be written on. It’s a new beginning with no ending so the possibilites are endless.

What’s your story going to be?

The Natasha Bedingfield song ‘Unwritten’ perfectly explains this New Moon in Gemini. Having a lot of air in her natal chart, Natasha’s lyrics capture the essence of Gemini……..suspension of thought in order to let spirit be the scribe.

I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined

I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

Oh, oh, oh

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines

We’ve been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can’t live that way

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten
