Jupiter in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces 2019

Jupiter in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces is the big aspect happening this weekend January 13, 2019. It will be occurring 2 more times this year. We can expect the truth being obscured by the iridescent waters of Neptune in Pisces. Things will be presented one way but will turn out to be very different. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. This transit can make us idealistic falling into the ethereal trap that watery energies like to set up. Jupiter in Sagittarius is telling us we must modify our beliefs to align with our morals and values. The big test will be are you going to let fantasy and idealism carry you away even though you know it’s not going to end well? Or are you willing to stand up for your truth and walk away even if the siren song of Neptune in Pisces is intoxicating? Deception is seductive but we have the “God” planet Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius which is all about taking the high road even if you don’t know the final outcome. You can keep your rose coloured glasses on, but be prepared, Jupiter will hold you accountable for your actions.

Tips

-Stay Grounded!

-Be self-disciplined

-Get clear on your values

-Identify your long term goals and make decisions accordingly

-Take time to think things through before jumping into anything

-Use the Sagittarian strengths of research and analysis to understand every angle before committing to something

The Everyday Empath by Raven Digitalis- REVIEW

The Everday Empath by Raven Digitalis is a manual for those who identify as empaths or for those who suspect they might be empaths. This books covers all the bases from defining what an empath is, to coping strategies, to outlining the benefits of being an empath, and everything in between. The main message throughout was that the key to surviving in today’s world as an empath begins with living a balanced life by cultivating self-care.

What I particularly liked about this book was that it teaches you how to become more self-aware, so it’s not about hating your empathic abilities or placing the blame on other people for the way you feel. In this sense, this was a self-empowering book that made me feel proud and confident being an empath. There were many exercises outlined in the book to help cope with the emotional tsunami’s of being an empath. I thought some of them were stronger than others because some seemed very ritualistic and complicated such as doing a lot of visual work while trying to stay present in interactions. A standout technique were the protective shields. This is an innovative technique that makes energy protection creative and fun. I also thought the cord cutting exercise was unique and more hands on compared to other cord cutting techniques.

Overall this book is a must read for those who are struggling with being an empath because you will finish this book feeling less burdened and overwhelmed by your gifts and you will come to understand that emotional equilibrium is in fact achievable.

New Moon Solar Eclipse January 5, 2019- A Grotto

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun.

Eclipses are portals that bring in a rush of karmic energy. If you’re of an ancient Astrology school of thought, then Eclipses will be considered dangerous times when people should be fasting and staying indoors. These superstitions are ways to force us to quietly meditate and reflect during these high energy times.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse will be shaking up relationships with our career, reputation, status, traditions, authority, our material life, and our Father and or older men in our personal life. This is so we can relate to them with more humility, patience, understanding, tolerance, and love.

The Aspects

Solar Eclipse conjunct Saturn- Releasing outdated three-dimensional ways of looking at the Saturnian things in our lives. Things are more than brick and mortar. People are more than skin and bones. Traditions are more than right and wrong.

Solar Eclipse sextile Neptune- Artistic and spiritual understanding.

Mercury entering Capricorn- Blunt and harsh truths being revealed.

January 6- Uranus stationing direct 28 degrees Aries- Progress

The Solar Eclipse will be releasing out dated perceptions of the power structures in our life. Saturn rules the men in our life- specifically our Father, Grandfather, etc so expect some reconciliations with those figures. The Eclipse sextiling Neptune will allow us to see these structures from a deep spiritual place. Mercury entering Capricorn on the same day is also helping us to perceive the structures we have built in our life and what needs to be tweaked and refined. Uranus stationing direct the day after the Eclipse is casting off the shackles of yesteryear ready to assist is with this restructuring.

The Kozminsky Symbol for the Eclipse is:

16º Capricorn: A number of books floating near a coast land rich in vegetation and floral charm, with beautiful grottos rising from the blue sea.
Denotes one, artistic and nature-loving, who has a rapturous appreciation for the grandeur of creation and endeavors by some media-art, letters, or song-to express it. He has a strong affinity with nature, and her many moods will act and react on his sensitive soul. It is a symbol of Expression.

The Eclipse at 15 degrees Capricorn is happening at the most dense degree of the most dense sign in the Zodiac. Here it’s as though the Capricorn ruled house in your chart is under a pressure cooker. Whenever something is released, we can say that a healing process has begun. This is Capricorn. A harsh material lesson learned, in order to rebuild spiritually.

The Solar Eclipse is a South-Node eclipse meaning there will be things leaving our lives. A Saturnian Eclipse always brings with it a heavy energy that forces us to confront our fears. You can either look at the Saturnian things in your life as burdensome mountains, or you can view them as beautiful grottos, richly vegetated with species you have never seen before. This vegetation is love, in all its varying forms. The opposing sign to Capricorn is Cancer- the sign of selflessness. When we are able to transmute our triumph of our material structures into love, we can accept the beauty and grandeur of creation. Capricorn eventually learns that life isn’t all about money, fame, and stability. It’s about what we choose to do with those things that matters.

Our Heart field is the densest Chakra, meaning when we must learn to master its harsh lessons before we can appreciate its meaningful gifts. This is the lesson of Capricorn- we must slowly trek up the mountain, confronting obstacles and challenges along the way before we can enjoy its majestic view.

Don’t be afraid of the restructuring that will take place over the next 3 months from this Solar Eclipse. What seemed like a long trek up a mountain will actually have been the emergence of grottos- new dimensions of love and understanding rising from your sea of emotions.

2019- A Universal ‘3’ Year

2018 was an 11 universal year, a time when unseen parts of our consciousness were brought to the surface. A big lesson of the master number 11 year was about cultivating sacred reciprocity. This involved learning to have a relationship with the unseen and spiritual. We began to develop a profound understanding of our place in the world in order to better serve our purpose. If you would like to read more about the lessons of 2018, you can read my blog post here.

2019

2019 will a universal 3 year. This is the number of understanding. We will be called to dissect and analyze those unseen parts of our consciousness that were brought to the surface last year. We must imbue it with understanding in order to gain depth of perception. Most of us will not be aware of what our spiritual upgrades were in 2018, but this year we will be forced to clarify and uncover those lessons. In the Kabbalah, the number 3 represents the ‘unfolding of what was once hidden, but is now knowable.’ 2019 will be the year of truth.

Truth

The 3 vibration has to do with communication. One of the ways we can learn what the truth is, is by communicating. Sharing our thoughts and opinions and expressing our unique views will help us identify our truth. This doesn’t mean we have to yell them from the rooftop or blast them on social media. This is less about voicing them and more about how we express them through our actions. This is facilitated through having a strong core.

Solar Plexus

The focus will be on healing our Solar Plexus Chakra. This is the chakra found in the centre of our body and is all about developing core strength, personal power, and owning your truth. As I previously mentioned, 2018 was a year of waking up those dormant parts of ourselves that are imperative to our purpose. The Solar Plexus Chakra is ruled by the Sun, so we must bring to light the good, the bad, and the ugly. When our core is strong we are able to stay focused and confident as we confront the truth. The Solar Plexus is responsible for motivation and determination. As the number 3 completes the triality of the 1 and the 2, we must take action this year to bring our truth into form.

It’s a great year to do core exercises, clean up your diet, and also to be more discerning about what you read and say.

Working with yellow crystals is also advisable.

How To Know What Your Lessons Were in 2018?

2019 is our golden opportunity to make changes in our lives congruent with the newly self-discovered parts of ourselves from 2018.

The lessons of 2018 involved the following themes:

Compassion

Relationships

Surrender

Patience

Authenticity

Reflect on how these themes played out in your life and what your learned from them. 2019 is the year to manifest what your learned.

Tips on How to Work with The 3 Energy

-Take up a new creative hobby

-Learn new skills

-Read books you would never have read before

-Write down your craziest ideas

-Exercise- specifically core exercises. Pilates would be a great choice!

-Finish what you started

-Read before you hit “send”

-Be optimistic

-Own up to your feelings

-Speak to a therapist or counselor if you need help

 

There’s a beautiful quote by Shania Twain who is a Life Path #3. In this quote she is indirectly referring to the Solar Plexus Chakra. The 3 energy has played out very strongly in her life which is why she is familiar with its lessons surrounding courage, compassion, creativity, and willpower. This is also why she always shows off her core.

Jupiter will also be in the Fire sign of Sagittarius all year which is the transit of truth. The nodes of the Moon will be in Water and Earth signs along with the eclipses. These transits will have some of the strongest impacts on our lives this year, which means the trinity of Fire, Water, and Earth will be active.

 

All the best to you during this 3 universal year!

Full Moon in Cancer December 22, 2018: Lunar Love

The final Full Moon of 2018 is in her own domain of Cancer. There are only a couple of aspects which are beautiful and inspiring. This FM is happening only a few hours after the Winter Solstice which is emitting a lunar glow to bathe the strong solar energy of the solstice. It is a doorway that we are stepping through and closing off behind us.

The Aspects

Moon sextile Uranus- new ideas and changes in your personal life

Venus trine Neptune- deeper connections and understanding

The final FM of the year carries the main lessons of the year. Her aspects show us that we all experienced great changes in our personal lives, in order for us to look at things in new ways. This FM is at 0 degrees Cancer suggesting we can also treat her as a NM. What can we expect in 2019? Let’s look at the Kozminsky symbol…

1º Cancer: A curious ring set with a large heart of white onyx.
Denotes one of occult learning and of an extremely sensitive and sympathetic nature who will do much for the pleasure and help of the people. He is gifted with a peculiar power, which produces a feeling of calmness and serenity. He may not be free from his own worries, but the power to cast away such poison is his, and he will find that the rays of good he throws out for others will react with added force on himself. It is a symbol of Compassion

This symbol speaks to the Venus trine Neptune aspect. The lesson we must carry with us into 2019 is that of compassion. The 11 universal year of 2018 was a year of growing pains. 2019 will be a universal 3 year, a time when we must alchemize our pain into wisdom to help heal others.

Take some time during this FM and ponder these questions:

What if the pain I experienced this year wasn’t pain but power? What did I do with this power? What can I still do with my power?

Glowing Moon to all!

 

 

 

Winter Solstice- Birth

A seed or frequency is created at the Winter Solstice that is encoded with our blueprint for the coming year. At Imbolc- February 3rd, that seed becomes conceived and the gestation period begins at the Spring Equinox and that seed/frequency will be released at the Winter Solstice 9 months later.

The Winter Solstice occurs when the Sun enters 0 degrees Capricorn and is known as the exit door, while 0 degrees Cancer is known as the entrance door at the Summer Solstice. We are ready to give birth to our creation.

This creation will look like a spark and feel like self-awareness and rebirth. We spent 51 days from Samhain to the Solstice in our underworld, confronting our shadows. Now we must shine the light of the Sun on them and release them while the Sun is at his peak.

I would recommend thinking about your power word for 2019 and your resolutions. This is the official start of the New Year. This is your birth.

This year we have a Full Moon in Cancer the following night symbolizing this beautiful synchronistic birth.

Bright Solstice to all!

 

 

 

New Moon in Sagittarius December 7, 2018: Shoot that Poison Arrow

The New Moon in Sagittarius is occurring at 15 degrees Sagittarius which has the potential to reaffirm our faith in the midst of swirling chaos. We are only limited by our beliefs, and this NM can either poison you via your own limiting perceptions or it can push you onto a new journey of self-discovery.

The Aspects

Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces- tainted love

New Moon square Mars- impatience

New Moon square Neptune- confused

Jupiter square Mars & Neptune- questioning your beliefs

 

The New Moon in Sagittarius is contains a poisoned bow and arrow. It’s poisoned with fear, restlessness, aggression, impatience, insecurity, and deception. At this time it can feel like we need to shoot, but we don’t know where to aim. We have to trust that everything will be OK, but that darn Sag energy is making us clamour for a new journey. It’s during intense times like this that we have to put down our bow and arrow and let the universe decide our best course of action.

The Kozminsky Symbol for the New Moon is:

16º Sagittarius: A woman outside an old ruin under a starlit sky, a white angel on her right, a dark angel on her left. The stars — the lamps outside the palaces of the Holy Ones — are shining.
Denotes one of intense mind capable of great acts. Very mediumistic, he is greatly influenced by his impressions and impulses. His path throughout his life is full of varied dangers, and he must be careful lest he miss the way. Let him often look up to the stars and pray for the guidance of the Good. It is a symbol of Restraint.

This symbol shows the starlight that this NM is offering us. The Mars Neptune conjunction is ideal for channeling and spotting the universe at work in your life. The NM squaring this conjunction can make us overlook these messages. The ruler of this NM is Jupiter in Sagittarius who is helping us see the restraints of our beliefs. The mid-point of a fire sign is the perfect time to burn away the old perceptions you have of yourself. Release them so you can lighten the load for your new journey.

Sagittarius reminds us to never lose hope because just when we’re about to give up, the arrow is released. Trust is the antidote for your poisoned beliefs during this New Moon.

 

 

Full Moon in Gemini November 22, 2018: Twinning Ideas

Moonbeams: Looks are deceiving

Lesson to be Learned: Belief is a sexy form of control when your motivations are fear based. When your thoughts and beliefs are passionate, your motivations are hopeful.

The Full Moon in Gemini is teaching everyone to slow down and sustain ideas by using power instead of force. It’s easy to be conned by our ideas and beliefs when we are acting out of fear instead of passion. So ask yourself the following questions:

“is the idea more important than the result?”

“can I accept that it could fail?”

“will hastiness somehow make the idea better?”

“does it make me feel excited or nervous?”

“what are the pros and con’s?”

 

The Aspects

Full Moon square Mars- anger and frustration

Moon opposite Jupiter- overenthusiastic

Mars square Jupiter- chasing a conquest

The ruler of the FM is Mercury who is retrograde in Sagittarius. This is making us rethink ideas that have become a bit fanatical. The aspects during this lunation are showing that we are feeling very fired up about ideas and beliefs and yet we have no raw manifesting power at this time. It can feel like you are arguing with yourself, trying to convince yourself that your ideas and thoughts are the real deal. Let’s keep in mind that Mercury is the trickster so what seems to be good and true is in fact not 100% accurate.

Mars has the loudest voice during the Full Moon and with him in the sign of Pisces, we have to let our burning thoughts cool off for a while in the watery domain of “let go and flow.”

Remember that every idea has a positive and negative side and fighting for one at the expense of the other will fracture or split the idea leaving you with nothing in the end. Let stuff come up but don’t get emotionally attached to it, because for all you know, what you’re fighting for could be the evil twin masquerading as the good twin.

 

 

The Happiness Passport by Megan Hayes: REVIEW

‘The Happiness Passport’ by Megan Hayes is an international exploration of what happiness means to various cultures around the world. Like most people, I have been guilty of being fascinated with foreign cultures and their seemingly relaxed and pleasurable ways of life. If you have ever wondered how to accomplish this, then this book is a must read. Megan takes the reader on a journey to every corner of the world and delves into what happiness means to each culture. Readers will be surprised to learn that the Danish Hygge that has become somewhat of a mainstream fad, is only one small example of what different countries consider to be their idea of happiness. This book is more of a encyclopedia for happiness seekers, because Megan introduces the reader to a new vocabulary full of beautiful words to describe the state we are all seeking. I was moved reading this book because I learned that some cultures were able to articulate my own idea of happiness that I myself could never find the words for. This book was broken down into chapters regarding happiness that is found at Home, in the Community, in the Soul, Spirituality, and Calm of the everyday lives of the various cultures featured. This drove home the message that everyone has their own idea of what happiness looks and feels like to them. I would recommend that you keep a pen and paper close by when reading this book because there will be so many new words that will be added to your lexicon once you’re finished. Words are powerful because they are elements of language, and what better way to learn the language of happiness than through beautiful descriptive words from all over the world.

 

Stones of the Goddess by Nicholas Pearson: REVIEW

Stones of the Goddess is a crystal user’s guide on working with goddesses and the Divine feminine. Nicholas Pearson’s expertise in crystals is apparent throughout as this is a detailed and well researched manual. The stand out for me was the rock formations process compared to the maiden, mother, crone triality that we see in several goddess stories. This scientific and geologic look at nature’s cyclical process is the essence of this book- that the goddess is present in the mineral kingdom. There were several crystal grids, charm bags, elixirs, meditations that were included. This book couldn’t be more timely as we are currently experiencing the women’s empowerment movement and the rise of the feminine. If the Goddess represents nature and change, using her gifts will help us navigate our way through this new  expansive consciousness.
