New Moon in Libra October 19, 2017- That’s Where My Demons Lie

Moonbeams: Authenticity & Inner-demons

The New Moon finds the Sun and Moon both in the sign of Libra. Libra represents the cosmic mirror- where we project ourselves onto others- the good, the bad, and the ugly. This NM will  show us how we have been unbalanced in our dealings with others. Have we been too self-sacrificing, or too self-indulgent? Either way, there are issues surrounding authenticity present at this lunation.

Uranus making an opposition to the New Moon is forcing us to approach our imbalances in a new way. We can do this by embracing our differences and respecting those who disagree with our choices.

The New Moon making a quincunx to the wounded healer Chiron suggests our own mirrors have become very distorted. The blinders are coming off. Perhaps we won’t like what we actually see, but Chiron is letting us know that we might have to confront old issues and pains around suppressing our true nature.

Jupiter and Mercury both being conjunct in Scorpio is helping us to bring back our power (Jupiter) by first bringing to the surface secrets buried deep within and processing them through logic (Mercury). Healing can only occur when we first clean up sewer (Scorpio) so to speak.

We can clearly see the themes from this NM in the media today. Seedy exposes around power, sexual abuse, and secrets- Harvey Weinstein being the prime example.

The major lesson the New Moon in Libra will offer us is to speak and live our truth to induce deep rooted healing. Venus the ruler of this moon is unaspected meaning her energies are free to do as they wish. Approach everything from a place of love as opposed to hate to help release your own inner demons. This will allow you to get back into your body and frequency without having uninvited visitors lurking in your underworld.

The song ‘Demons’ by Imagine Dragons perfectly captures the essence of this lunation. It’s about warning a significant other (Libra) about your demons. For so long things and feelings of ours were treated like demons- something evil and powerful. Guess what? Now as a collective we are experiencing a major exorcising of all of humanity’s demons.

When Waves Crash Ashore

An Observation

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are known to be emotional, sensitive, dreamy, and artistic. A lesser known quality of the Water signs would be their strong projection qualities. There’s a mutual exchange that happens when a water sign picks up on the feelings of others but also project their feelings on others. You must be thinking that every person does this, but I’ve noticed that Water signs do this the most to each other.

An insecure Scorpio will do everything in their power to make another water sign insecure. A depressed Cancer will do the same, as will a manipulative Pisces. Water signs are the dowsing rods of the zodiac, they have an incredible talent for seeking out fellow water sources. A Water sign will dry up like a rain droplet in the Sahara if they are surrounded by Earth, Fire, or Air signs. They feel a blockage when dealing with these people as they have an easier time concealing their emotions. For Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisces, what they feel is real. Interacting with Earth signs is like tapping into solid granite, Fire signs are too hot to touch, and Air signs are unreachable.

Every person I’ve known who has a lot of Water energy tends to send a tidal wave of emotions my way since I am also Water dominant. At times it feel likes a tsunami and I am the land. I’ve come to appreciate this as their waves reveal the bottom of their ocean- sometimes it’s a pretty sight, and other times it’s an ugly sight. Merging water with water creates our seas, oceans, rivers, and lakes which are our source of life. Merging with another is what life is all about- without it, none of us would be here.

 

AstroJewelry- Jupiter & Jewelry- Part 1

Jupiter is known as the planet of abundance, expansion, spirituality, education, and riches. Riches can actually extend to jewelry as well.  I have noticed a correlation between your Jupiter sign and the kind of jewelry you like and own. Jupiter is actually known as the ‘Gem of Fortunes.’ Down below you can find some celebrity examples.

Coco Chanel- Jupiter in Cancer

Coco Chanel’s Jupiter is placed in Cancer in her 7th House. Cancer is ruled by the moon just like pearls. Coco Chanel was responsible for making pearls a quint-essential French fashion staple. Coco Chanel was often referred to as the Queen of Pearls. This is still seen in the House of Chanel today as Mr. Karl Lagerfeld has kept the brand true to Coco’s signature. Coco’s obsession with the elite also led her to being greatly influenced by sporting culture- specifically yachting. It’s no surprise that nautical fashion- including pearls- were a major part of her aesthetic.

Elizabeth Taylor- Jupiter in Leo- 8th House

We all know Elizabeth Taylor was a jewelry snob. Her extensive collection of jewels is a direct result of her Jupiter in Leo. Not only did she have an abundance of jewelry, but a Leo Jupiter creates a love of gaudy, showy, attention grabbing pieces. Elizabeth was known to flaunt her jewels, and outshined and outsparkled even the most prestigious diamond mines in the world. Her 8th House Jupiter allowed her to be gifted with jewels as opposed to purchasing them herself- although she did this as well. Her husbands were known to call her “very expensive.”  An 8th House Jupiter in Leo also made her obsessed with jewels and she would go to great lengths to acquire the rarest ones. After all, her Leoline Jupiter did make her the Queen of Diamonds- and since the 8th House is ruled by Scorpio- diamonds themselves are ruled by this sign, as they are buried deep within the earth.

Mary Pickford- Jupiter in Aries- 2nd House

Mary Pickford may not be someone you would immediately associate with jewelry, but this silent movie star had a very extensive and expensive (2nd House) jewelry collection. She was dubbed Hollywood’s “first millionairess” and was obsessed with rubies and sapphires. Douglas Fairbanks gifted Mary with the Star of Bombay which was a 182 carat blue star sapphire. Mary later donated it to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC where it’s currently on display. Mary’s obsession with rubies and sapphires is due to her Aries Jupiter. Sapphire is a power stone and is the historical birthstone for the month of April- Mary was born April 8. Rubies on the other hand are red coloured which is connected to the fire sign Aries.

Marilyn Monroe- Jupiter in Aquarius-7th House

Marilyn Monroe may have sung “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” but in truth, Marilyn was more of a handbag collector than a jewelry collector. Aquarians are not known to be glitzy and glamorous, so while Marilyn’s Jupiter is in the sign of Aquarius, it’s fair to say that jewelry really didn’t interest her as much as her intellectual pursuits. Most of Marilyn’s jewelry resembled rosaries or had an ecclesiastical look to them. Aquarians can be quite religious which is the placement of her Jupiter. What is interesting is that her estate did find a rosary necklace with onxy and jade beads with a large crucifix that appeared to be more worry beads than a statement piece. This could be due to the nervous Uranus energy associated with her Jupiter. This rosary necklace was also given to her from her husband Joe Di Maggio- which explains the 7th House placement of her Jupiter.

Sophia Loren- Jupiter in Libra- 9th House

Sophia Loren like Elizabeth Taylor is a massive jewelry lover. Her Jupiter in Libra gives her a strong thirst for jewels and the gaudier the better! Sophia was a master at balancing (Libra) her statement pieces with classic outfits so as not to compete with the jewels. Her Jupiter is ruled by Venus, so the more feminine the jewelry, the better. Her Jupiter is placed in her 9th house, meaning she traveled all over the world visiting jewelry shops and was not biased towards Italian jewelry, in fact, she was a huge fan of the French brand Cartier, since the 9th house does rule foreigners.

Amy Adams- Jupiter in Pisces- 11th House

Amy Adams is known to be quite flashy on the red carpet. Her go to jewelry pieces are emerald. Emerald is ruled by Mercury which has very good relations with the planet Jupiter. Emeralds bring positive change to Jupiter in Pisces people, particularly so if Mercury is in the 4th or 7th House. Amy has her Mercury in the 4th House which maybe why she is so drawn to these heartful gemstones. The 11th House placement of her Jupiter indicates that she only wears flashy jewels when she is at an important event.

Miranda Kerr- Jupiter in Sagittarius- 5th House

Miranda Kerr might be a supermodel, but she is also a pretty hard core new ager. In countless interviews Miranda has mentioned that as a child in Australia, she would go searching for crystals in the outback with her family and was taught the magical properties of the stones through her grandparents. Miranda has been a public advocate for gemstone healing and even created (5th House Creativity) her own jewelry line using healing crystals/gems. She carries a clear quartz crystal wand beaded with rose quartz in her purse, and carries a small rose quartz piece with her at all times. Her Sagittarius Jupiter makes her Jupiter extra powerful as Jupiter is in its own sign and also spiritualizes her jewelry. Her new agey aesthetic comes into view with her raw gemstone jewelry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Birch Tree June 21- Personality & Transit

If you were born on the longest day of the year  (Summer Solstice) you are beautiful, elegant, and refined. You are energetic and your optimism is contagious. Friendly, you are good natured and charming. You could be a writer or a leader because you are not afraid of big projects. You could do a lot for the benefit of others and be involved in some type of charity work. Your good looks, creativity and charisma open the door for other endevors. You are not oblivious to your life lessons and your memory is great. In love you follow both your intuition and intelligence, and work to have a passionate relationship. You have the quality of a Divine trailblazer but you also appreciate your family and home. Often times, Birch Tree people discover their life purpose early on in life.

During the Birch Tree transit, tempers can come and go in a flash. You can commit to too many projects at once during this time. Opportunities can also present themselves at this time, so it’s important to be flexible. The Summer Solstice marks a time for new beginnings, so expect a lot to transpire over these next 3 months. The word ‘Birch’ came from the Sanskrit word Bhurga- meaning tree whose bark is used for writing upon. This is an excellent time for writing, poetry, fiction etc… Birch is used in many pagan celebrations and rituals- Imbolc- white bark is used to symbolise the return of light along with candles. Beltane- maypole was made of Birch bark. The dark and white colours of the tree indicates rebirth and new beginnings. The notchings in the tree look like eyes- so ESP will be heightened during this transit.  Overall a very busy, psychic, and communicative time!

Ruling Planet- Venus

Full Moon in Scorpio May 10, 2017: Soul Detective

Date: May 10, 2017

Degree- 20 degrees

Moonbeams- what is really going on?

Like a detective on the hunt for clues to solve a murder mystery, our Full Moon in Scorpio is asking us to solve our crime of passion, that being our intuitive neglect. Scorpio is a penetrating sign that is able to uncover the “hidden” in everyday life. Ruled by Pluto, Scorpionic energy needs to transform and cleanse negativity in order to make room for its purest expression of intuition. As a water sign, Scorpio’s gift is that of psychic prowess. If Cancer is the healer, and Pisces is the Dreamer, than Scorpio is the mirror. Taurus is the polarity of Scorpio indicating that one’ needs are directly linked to one’s desires. Scorpio above any other sign wants to feel validated for who they truly are without having projections thrown onto them. They cannot help that they find themselves swimming the underground chambers of those they encounter, they cannot help the fact that what they “see” is what they project. In essence, Scorpio becomes the cracked mirror of the zodiac, unable to foster a deep sense of themselves without letting the murky waters below pull them under.

During this lunation the sun will be in Taurus lighting up the Taurus-Scorpio axis. How can we foster that deep sense of self from a place of purity as opposed to contamination? Let’s look to our cosmic clues during this full moon to help us solve this crime.

Mars Squaring Neptune

  • Inability to trust the flow of life, lack of self trust.

Pluto RX Trine Sun

  • Transformation

Mercury Conjunct Uranus

  • Exposure- truth coming out

Full Moon Trine Neptune

  • Strong intuition

Full Moon Trine Chiron

  • Healing the psyche

 

Solving the Crime

If we put these clues together, we can see that this full moon is providing us with the opportunity to repair our cracked mirrors through trusting ourselves and the journey we find ourselves on. If your projections are negative, look within yourself to purge what is no longer serving you. Scorpio is the regenerative sign, so rest assured that even if the waters pull you under, there is a cavern full of light that is beckoning to you…………….transformation.

Mystery Solved.

Case Closed.

Nodal Axis Change May 9, 2017: The New Renaissance

A rustling of silk taffeta can be heard, a artist adds a dash of crimson to his fresco, a lion roars in the Colosseum signalling a fight, marble statues of men litter the gardens, a gilded rebirth is on the horizon, the sparkling palace of your heart awaits an insurgence of creative embellishment.

On May 9, 2017 the nodal axis changes from Virgo/Pisces to Leo/Aquarius until November 7, 2018. The Virgo/Pisces axis was one of aligning to spirit through extracting the spiritual nutrients and discarding the toxins of illusions. The Leo/Aquarius axis is one of embracing the new version of ourselves un-apologetically. Leo represents creativity, self expression, individuality, and the inner child. Aquarius energy represents the other and the collective consciousness. This next year and half is asking us to let go of group conditioning and follow our hearts, wherever that may lead us. The Leo north node will be guiding us to embracing our individuality and uniqueness regardless of what others may think. The south node will be challenging this, luring us back into the cult of of what other people might think about our choices and decisions. Using discernment will be a huge help during what is a delicate time of me versus them. Remember, if every lion thought about what the animals thought of them, they wouldn’t be the kings and queens of the jungle. They own their title proudly, so embrace the throne and wear your crown proudly. If you find yourself becoming the cowardly lion, you will know that you aren’t listening to your inner roar.

I personally feel we will be entering a new renaissance during this next year and a half. The Renaissance of history was a time of building upon classical antiquity (Aquarius) but transforming the traditional into something new and creative (Leo). This will be a period where the old you will be left in the past in favour of your rebirth. On a collective scale I think creativity will flourish thanks to the innovative foundation of Aquarius. A more humanist approach to everything from politics, economics, to art will be much more self centred, hence Mr. Leo Donald Trump’s policy of “America First.”  It will be a tense time where selfishness at the expense of others will be seen in many major areas. Respecting other’s opinions without sacrificing yourself will be the challenge during this time. Coming out victoriously means that you turn others down with love (heart=Leo) as opposed to arrogance. The good thing is that the water bearer Aquarius will always be there to dampen the fiery flames of Leo if things do go unchecked. If you would like to see what you will be re-birthing in your life, check to see where the Leo/Aquarius axis falls in your natal chart.

We may not see the erections of basilicas, or the spread of religious iconography, but what we will see are more subtle examples of grandeur- self love, creativity, independence, and the pursuit of happiness………..and what more beautiful ornamentation could you ask for?
