Mercury Retrograde Giggle Juice

Are you giggling with the universe?  At least you know what is going on with Mercury retrograde!  Let me give you some real life examples.

 

A friend truly believed contractors were going to pour cement for her new basement.  They were delayed by a few days.  She is anxious to get her new home started.  Since she is aware this house construction was supposed to begin during the three weeks that Mercury is retrograde, she understands the delays.  Her method of dealing with it?  Lots of deep breaths and giggle juice.

 

Another friend had a major operation.  Initially she was told she would be out of the hospital four days later.  However, there was conflicting opinions among the doctors and she was not released for 7 days.  Her understanding that there would be changes of medical opinion helped her to giggle her way through it.

 

A friend, who prides herself on few problems with viruses on her computer, suddenly has massive infections to the point that she has to take her computer to a techie.  Why?  Try Mercury retrograde as prime time for slowing down computer communications. Imagine the entire internet slowing down all over the globe and you get the picture.  Slowing to a snail’s pace as Mercury gets ready to be a morning star!

 

A person wanted to rent one of our cabins for a month.  I’m not too excited about making the deal.  Why?  I know the conditions will change.  The job will change and they will have to leave earlier than expected.  So I’m just giggling my way through the changes that seem to happen on almost a daily basis.

 

My hubby is a contractor who has learned to order all his materials for the anticipated jobs prior to Mercury going retrograde.  Why?  Well he has to communicate by phone to get the materials.  Then they are shipped to us via transportation which is also governed by Mercury.  So the trucks will slow down or break down or somehow miss loading the materials on the correct truck.  Or the materials will be shipped to some other remote region of our province.  All of the above have happened during Mercury retrograde, yet seldom happen when Mercury is direct.  During the 3 weeks the Mercury is retrograde, my Sherpa has learned to go with the flow and laugh along with quicksilver, Mercury.  He understands the implications to our business.

 

In Edmonton, several group homes for difficult teens were going to close down said the CEO.  Suddenly a few days later, the plans had totally changed.  That’s Mercury retrograde.  Both the government run Children’s Services and the group home didn’t think out their decision very carefully.  Plans always change during Mercury retrograde and you have to learn to go with the flow or giggle your way through the changes!

 

Remember the last solar eclipse in July was focused on Chiron, Neptune and Jupiter otherwise known as expansion of health care and healing expansion of ideas?  Neptune stands also for dissolving what is currently there. In Alberta, there are all kinds of rumblings about how our “new” health care reforms are not working for our province.  In the USA, the President is attempting to sell his vision of universal health care to the country.  Poor timing Obama.  You should have consulted an astrologer. It’s very doubtful that people will buy into the vision he has and he will get only a very watered down version passed.

 

So grab your bottle of giggle juice.  You understand what is happening.  Take ten deep breaths and go with the flow of the energy of the universe!

 

Laugh-a-lot for a happier life!

Dance in the Mercury retrograde Moonlight!

Mercury Retrograde~ Shape shifter

September 2, 2009 at 5:44 am | Posted in 2 Energy Cycles, 5. Mercury Retrograde | 2 Comments

Slowdown or Communication Meltdown?  You get to choose!  Life is shifting into slow gear from September 7th – 29th when Mercury goes retrograde during its routine life cycle of three to four times per year.  Are you feeling the effects already?  That’s because it takes a wee bit to turn that Mercury locomotive around.  So Mercury is slowing down and will come to a standstill before September 7th.  For any purists out there, Mercury does not actually slow down, but transforms itself from evening star to morning star during the Mercury retrograde.  In other words, right now Mercury is travelling behind the sun, rising after the sun does.  After the retrograde period is over, Mercury travels ahead of the sun, rising BEFORE the sun.  So Mercury is the ultimate communication and travel transformer. 

 

Think about it!  Shape shifter!  Mercury is changing from the end of its old cycle purpose or the wintery evening of its life cycle to a new and improved communication expert in the birth or spring of Mercury’s new life cycle purpose.  Mercury renews itself three to four times a year and drags you kicking and screaming along with it.  Locomotives have the power to do that. 

 

Yah but you don’t like it?  Too bad, so sad.  This is a time when you will be forced to revise, re-edit, re-new, re-negotiate, RE everything in your life that has to do with the written or spoken word.  RE everything that has to do with communication … re-dial that number honey!  But you are on hold?  Re-dial again.  Either put your life on hold and take a vacation for 3 weeks or work with the Mercury retrograde energy wisely

 

But you want to get a new car?  Don’t do it during Mercury retrograde.  But you want to buy a new computer?  Don’t do it during Mercury retrograde.  But you want to sign a contract for a new anything?  Don’t do it during Mercury retrograde.  Most things you do that have to do with communication and travel you end up either waiting in line, or having to redo, redesign, or just plain give up in exasperation.  Hello!  Mercury is busy doing his huge shift from the end of one cycle to the beginning of a new cycle.  He simply doesn’t have time to deal with your detailed list!  He’s transforming from Clark Kent to become the new Superman when he is through!

 

Empower yourself and use the Mercury-Rx energy wisely!  I’m grateful for Mercury retrograde time.  It is a super creative time.  It is time to do deep inside to dredge up some of your most insightful thoughts.  It’s a time of great inside illumination.  It’s a time to slow down and think!  Shine that searchlight inside yourself!

 

This Mercury retrograde begins at Libra, an air sign.  So expect all kinds of balance issues to come to the foreground.  Yin-yang. Politicians and others will begin this period by discussing how to balance budgets due to the economy.  They will also try to figure out the balancing act between hiring people and firing people (translation:  getting senior members to retire willingly).  Libra also stands for being super charming and full or airy thoughts, so some of the “answers” people will come up with might not be very practical, but they surely will sound terrific.  When Mercury goes backwards into Virgo on September 19th, the focus will shift to how to balance the act between health care matters on a global scale and getting people to respond positively in a personal way. 

 

Since Mercury retrograde is a global phenomena, notice how all of a sudden there will be the discovery that the HINI vaccine either isn’t working or there isn’t enough of it.  People in the health care industry will be scrambling since their plan is not working as they had originally intended.  This can get more than a little stressful with Mercury retrograde in Virgo quincunx the stellium of Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius.  Show no fear and take your own health care precautions!  Yup, stay out of the fear energy that others around the globe will be generating.

 

Yes, shift is here and coming to your train station soon.  Now that you know the rest of the story, start preparing for your slow down.  Don’t get frustrated, but be grateful every day for the new lessons that Mercury is bringing to you.  Be very clear in your communication of any messages with people.  Follow it up in writing so you have the documentation you need to use when Mercury goes direct at the end of September.  Hold off on getting your vehicle fixed.  Try to make your train or plane flight to wherever prior to the retrograde period or be prepared for delays.  In other words allow for tons of time before you have to be somewhere. 

 

Your other alternative to all this shift in thinking?  Hibernate for the next three weeks.  Hmm, seems to me that’s what bears do when their world shifts from winter to spring.  Maybe the bears have a wise plan?  Hooray for the Mercury Life cycle!

 

Laugh-a-lot for a happier life!

Dance in the Pluto shift Moonlight!

Leo Sun, Leo Moon

Fire up the leadership engines? The Sun just began its yearly pattern in Leo and the Moon danced into its monthly Leo cycle a few hours ago.  Fire-Fire Energy Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for the enthusiasm that comes with Leo Moon emotional energy.  This is gut level or grass roots tenacity and passion at its finest.

 

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in fire signs of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, you noticeably will be affected by the emotional energy over the next couple of days.  The rest of us will have moments of our day which will be influenced by the Moon line dancing in this fire sign. 

 

In your family life and at the office remember polarity points or the different ends of the pencil.  Either you write nicely with the pencil or you might have to erase stuff.  Either you play nice in the sandbox with your friends or you might have to apologize.  This double Leo fire energy will spurt forth lots of passion for the next couple of days.  If frustrations have been building up they could boil over with the claw marks of the king of the jungle right through the middle of them.  The polarity point is that if all has been going well, Leo will playfully roll through the tulips and dance is sheer childish delight.   

 

In your love life and friendships of all types war or peace?  While you may desire a great and fulfilling life with your friends and/or your main squeeze, leadership issues will be on the table.  Who gets to lead?  Who gets to decide the agenda?  Why does one person get to lead all the time?  Hello!  It’s time for the art of compromise and acting as a team if you wish to have a happier and life of personal fulfillment.  How are you going to draw your creative map seeking out your treasure chest of happiness with your main love?  How about doing your vision board together?  If you tell me there is no partner in your life, I’m telling you your main love should then be yourself. 

 

Reflection Questions!  See today’s previous post.  That’s enough homework for one day!  If you have finished them, then go out and play with the wee folk dancing among the lovely summer flowers!

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to be the real me instead of hiding behind a mask.

 

 

Laugh-a-lot for a happier life!

Dance in the Pluto shift and eclipse Moonlight!

Gemini Sun Mercury-Rx Stories

May 21, 2009 at 7:26 am | Posted in 1. Moon-Sun transits, 2 Energy Cycles | Leave a comment

The Sun jived its way into Gemini overnight.  For those of you who are Sagittarian Sun or Moon signs, you might find the next month a challenge.  It’s all about polarity points.  Imagine a pencil.  When your Sun sign is on the pencil lead and you are in your glory writing your own script.  The play is totally yours and you are the director, totally in control of your life.  Thus when the Sun is transiting our birth chart Sun sign, it is casting life and light into our lives.  It truly is the spring time of our birth chart and we usually experience new growth.  So those of you who are Gemini Sun, Moon or Ascendant, this is your spring time to thrive!

 

However, when the Sun is transiting on your eraser end of your pencil, you might find yourself challenged to erase some of your thinking to behaving.  You see it’s totally the opposite of what you usually believe or think.  In fact, you likely will have a love-unlove relationship with people who are your polar opposites.  Think about it!  So Sagittarius and Gemini folks have totally opposite ways of seeing the world.  For Sagittarius Sun and Moon signs, the move into Gemini Sun means the Sagittarians are experiencing autumn or fall for their solar year.  Sagittarians are getting ready to slow it down and reap the harvest of all they have sown since their birthday Sun time in late November and in December.

 

Now if you are a Pisces Sun or Moon, or a Virgo Sun or Moon, you too will experience challenges for the next month.  You see the Gemini Sun is square your Sun or Moon sign.  I suspect if you look at the pattern of your lives, you will find the most difficult life events pattern of your life happen when the Sun is travelling through Gemini.  I truly want you to reframe this.  It is in the difficult moments of our lives that we truly have the opportunities to learn the best lessons.  We certainly don’t learn much when we are cruising through life and everything is flowing smoothly down the river!  It is by doing inner reflection work when times are tough, that we look at our own behavior and can change how we respond to life and to people.

 

For those of you who have your Sun or Moon in Air Signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, you will be sailing smoothly along the ocean of life for the next month.  Catch the wind in your sails while you can.  Your yearly challenges come at another time of the year as your personal pattern.

 

What about the rest of us?  Well you are just in a lull period.  We need the lulls to catch our breath, to slow down the rhythms of life and to just simply coast for awhile.  We all have to deal with Mercury retrograde for another week. 

 

  1. That should simplify my life a wee bit!

Taurus Sun & H1N1 Flu

May 10, 2009 at 11:00 am | Posted in 2 Energy Cycles, 9. Moon Water, Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

H1n1 or honey it’s time to clean up your Taurus green clean act?  I find it fascinating that the medical powers that be are calling this HINI which looks awfully close to the colloquial word “hini”.  Local dialect says it means hind end or your butt or your ___ well you get the picture I’m sure.  It’s a joke on the World Health organization!

 

But is this Swine Flu or HINI strain any laughing matter?  I don’t think so!  It also is no coincidence that it showed up during exploratory Aries Sun and is growing during Taurus Sun time.  Someone has been monkeying around with experiments so they have jumped from pigs to people which share a huge percentage of the same DNA.

 

Yah but when is it going to stop?  I’m not a medical astrologer.  Astrologically speaking this is going to continue to grow for a while yet.  You see, looking at the Full Moon Scorpio chart, it appears this fear mongering won’t be finished for a couple of weeks of the Moon Cycle.  Pluto in Capricorn is doing his dirty deed of bringing our deepest fears to the surface as the world waits for the overdue next world wide pandemic.  Pluto is retrograde now showing those fears are lurking below the surface of lots of people, including the WHO.  Pluto is also square both Venus (female energy) and Mars (male energy).  So both women and men have the potential of feeling lots of fear.  So what can you do about Pluto in Capricorn?  Don’t rely on outside sources such as health organizations to keep you safe.  Empower yourself and keep your own immune system safe by eating healthy meals that you cook in your own home.  Exercise, rest, etc.  You already know this!

 

Yah but what else?  Well Jupiter is part of a stellium moving towards a conjunction with Chiron, the wounded healer conjunct Neptune, the great deceiver planet at it’s lower octave.  As well, all 3 of those planets are what is called “out-of-bounds” so they are operating in an extreme fashion.  Jupiter will catch up with Chiron and Neptune around May 24th.  Until that time the dis-ease will continue to spread.  That stellium is at the base of what is called a Tee-square.  It is square the Moon and our emotions and Jupiter stellium is square both the Sun and Mercury.  So there is lots of tension going on. 

 

The answer to solving this problem is opposite the focal point of Jupiter stellium which suggests Leo and leadership.  However world leaders and health people are contributing to the fear mongering instead of allaying our deep rooted fears.  Is this an experiment on all of us when the real pandemic shows up?  Hopefully it won’t be the myth of the little boy who cried wolf once too often. 

 

So what can you do about it?  Don’t buy into the emotion of fear contagion.  Instead, surround yourself with the energy of the Sun’s healing light and self love.  Make sure you get at least 30 minutes outside in the energy of the healing sunlight and breezes.  Handwash, handwash, handwash.  Eat lots of good healthy meals made with your loving hands.  Make sure you bless both the food and the water you drink. In other words, be grateful and thankful!  Thank your body for being healthy and visualize your body’s cells as being healthy and flowing with lovely healthy red corpuscles. 

 

Don’t forget that Mercury is retrograde right now, so there will be all kinds of dis-torted messages and gossip and innuendo about HINI.  Remember it is just that … the hind end of a pig!  Some scientist and medical oinkers need to be cleaned up in their experiments with animal and human DNA.  Why do you think we are getting all these dis-eases few of us ever heard about a decade ago?

 

Also remember the holographic universe.  This is all about cleaning up our personal environment, Mother Earth, etc.  It is a reminder from the Universe that we need to do a lot more!  If you think that more has to do with endorsing nuclear power anywhere, I don’t think so!  That truly has the potential devastating Pluto effect that could just put mankind over the edge.  What do you want for your children and grandchildren?  Honey, it’s time for us all to make Green-Clean choices NOW!

Taurus Sun, Pisces Moon

April 20, 2009 at 4:34 am | Posted in 1. Moon-Sun transits, 2 Energy Cycles, 9. Moon Water | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dream time or Teary times? The Sun moved into practical Taurus yesterday and the Moon danced into Pisces in a few hours later.  Earth-Water Energy!  If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in water signs of Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, you noticeably will be affected by the emotional energy over the next couple of days.  The rest of us will have moments of our day which will be influenced by the Moon dancing in this water sign. 

 

 

Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for this Sun and Moon two day dance as it is mirrored in my birth chart.  That means these are the two most powerful days of the year for me. To celebrate, I am pampering myself by taking a website design course I have wanted for some time.  What a lovely early birthday gift from my Sherpa!  Until the end of May, I will be posting on this blog, but unfortunately will have little time to visit your lovely blogs.

 

 

In your family life and at the office this is moving towards the end of a cycle and the seeds of a beginning of a new lunar cycle.  The New Moon happens on Friday, so you will want to finish any left-over projects from the Full Moon.  Taurus Sun will be asking you how you can work your life in a pragmatic or workable way.  The Pisces Moon, with Neptune as her queen planet, will want to be dreamy and mystical.   The Pisces water energy will help restore life to the Taurus Sun earth energy, as spring moves forward.  Similarly, there will be little green shoots of glorious ideas popping up in your world.  Go with the energy flow and grab for the dream!

 

 

In your love life and friendships of all types you might find that you are very empathetic with your main squeeze or with your friends.  Pisces Moon needs to feel needed.  Sometimes this intuitive energy will make you more vulnerable to the needs of others.  Be aware of that energy so you don’t try to use escapist tendencies of indulging too much in drinking and/or drugs which also can come to the foreground with the Neptune influence of the Pisces Moon.  Instead decide what is your stuff and what is someone else’s stuff.  It’s that simple.  Hand them back their stuff to deal with. We truly do not do others a favor when we try to rescue them.  That is their lesson to learn this lifetime, not yours!

 

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1.  What house does Pisces rule in your chart? What planets are in this house?  Events will be triggered in this house.
  2. What Neptune or Pisces escapist behavior do you use instead of dealing with stuff?
  3. What do you need to finish or complete to find personal fulfillment?
  4. What do you dream of doing for yourself?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to follow my dreams.  I intend to pay attention to my intuition and the messages brought to me in the next two days.

 

 

Dance in the Dreaming Neptune Moonlight!

Aries Sun, Spring Equinox Play

March 20, 2009 at 5:06 am | Posted in 1. Moon-Sun transits, 2 Energy Cycles, Equinox or Eclipse | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Shift time in our earthly Universe! Equinox times are always huge shifts of energy on Planet Earth.  The ancient wise ones who came before us understood this and worked with that energy change.  We shift into Fire Energy with the Sun dancing the lively two-step into Aries.  Celebrate a new awakening.  Celebrate spring!

 

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in fire signs of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, you noticeably will be affected by this shift.  The rest of us will have moments of our day which will be influenced by the Sun asserting his power in this fire sign. 

 

Empower yourself and use the Equinox energy wisely!  I’m grateful for the new earth drum beat for the next few months.  You see, we will have this fire energy drumming in the background until the next equinox.  It will be the musical backdrop of our world stage in the play of our lives.  Each Sun sign shift of Aries, Taurus and Gemini will form the progression process of our play from the beginning, middle and end until the next equinox.  The Sun forms the scenes of your play.  The Moon shift will write your episodes.  The main plot will focus on paying bills and overcoming the mountain of debt.  Stay tuned to the movie on your journey through life!   

 

So what does this Equinox energy bring to our world play over the next 3 months?  The Sun is the main male actor while the Moon is the main female actress.  We all have these archetypes in our personalities. This Aries Sun actor is going to go through a range of behaviors from adventurous and energetic to stamping his foot in anger because he is thinking “me first”.  This Aries actor lives very much in the Now and is impulsive.  Aries is ruled by Mars, the warrior archetype or side of each one of us.  Consequently, Aries Sun is going to demand initiative and action even more than usual because he is backed up by Uranus and Mercury.  Together this team is looking at their future and being very vocal about “what about me”?   Saturn in Virgo is forming an opposition to this planetary trio.  This suggests further belt tightening and struggles to deal with the play’s plot of the next 3 months.  These planets are all forming squares to Pallas Athena who in her wisdom prefers to be the peaceful goddess.  However she carries with her a sword to use if need be.  Chances are it will be used over the next 3 months as the plot thickens.  It could be that Athena as a supporting actress will team up with Aries Sun, Uranus and Mercury to seek revenge and justice.

 

In light of the global economy and the response of governments around the world pouring money into large corporations, people are going to respond to any inequities in a lively and fiercely protective manner.  Do you see what is happening with AIG paying their top corporate people huge bonuses from tax payer money?  That isn’t the least bit appropriate while the average person is financially struggling or worst has been laid off.  So the governments and large corporations of Planet Earth are going to be faced with the ram battering attitude of the global village people.  Yes, the world’s people have found their voice!

 

Yah but what about the main actress, Capricorn Moon in our world play?  Capricorn Moon will govern our underlying emotions for the next 3 months as this new play unfolds. The female and emotional side which we all have within us is trine Saturn suggesting that we are emotional ready for these difficult lessons.  We are ready to narrow our focus and do whatever it takes to make life work.  We emotionally are willing to commit to a plan and be responsible and more cautious.  We will be more disciplined and conscientious in trying to do the best we can to help overcome this mountain of a global economic problem.  With the Moon forming a trine to the trio of Mercury, Uranus and the Sun, we will support whatever actions the Sun wants to do during this play.   However, while we are willing to do this on the home front, we will expect our governments and corporations to mirror what we are willing to commit to. 

 

Is it a coincidence that  Pluto in Capricorn shift is affecting all of us during this global play?  No we are all engaged in it with the Moon in Capricorn.  This Pluto shift is square Venus retrograde in Aries.  That suggests that the normally docile and pleasant Venus is not going to be so pleasant.  She too is an actress in this play for the next three months.  Her role will be that of the unhappy harpy. She is the face of every woman around the globe urging her partner to do something about this situation.  She doesn’t have enough money to pay the bills.  She doesn’t have the lifestyle she is used to.  Oh yah, Venus in all of us will be the main complainer.  She wants her family to be okay and she is scared. So like anyone that acts out of fear based energy, she is going to be screaming mad at times.  Her role in the play is to force the sluggish Pluto shift or transformation to happen more quickly.  Shh, the curtains are opening about the time I post this.  Think about how this play is going to play out in your home!

 

Act 1 is Aries Sun – beginning sets the story line

Act 2 is Taurus Sun middle

Act 3 is Gemini Sun end climax, conflict resolved

Let the Spring equinox play begin!

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to do one random act of kindness today.

Capricorn Sun, Scorpio Moon Winter Solstice

December 20, 2008 at 12:28 pm | Posted in 1. Moon-Sun transits, 2 Energy Cycles, 9. Moon Water | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Power Play Winter Solstice Day!  Change and Shift happens!  Both the Sun and Moon change signs on Sunday to Earth and Water energy.  If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in water signs of Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces, you noticeably will be affected by the emotional energy over the next couple of days.  The rest of us will have moments of our day which will be influenced by the Moon floating in this water sign. 

 

Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for the Winter Solstice energy.  This energy will be in effect until the next solstice.  Over the course of the next 4 months people will feel huge shifts and have the opportunity of changing inwardly quite dramatically.  Positive change is in the air with the Sun twinned with Pluto and Mars.  That translates into energetic inner transforming.  The Sun is sextile the Moon in Scorpio which is ruled by Pluto.  This indicates most people will choose to change themselves.  It’s time for a global shift in consciousness.  This next 4 months will be one of the main opportunities for people to connect the dots of what is truly important in their lives.  If you choose to flow in the lava flow of Pluto it will be much easier for you!

 

The Moon is trine Venus conjunct Chiron conjunct Neptune during this eclipse.  This concentration of energy suggests that female energy will get a strong booster shot.  Expect insights and intuition to flow through your mind-body-spirit.  It’s an equinox gift from the Universe!  By spring you could literally have changed your DNA at the cellular level.  Normally that takes 7 years, but the Universe is speeding up the process for just this moment in time.  Use this major shift in consciousness wisely and for the greater good!  Green Gift # 7:  www.theshiftmovie.com

 

In your family life and at the office responsibility and family commitment will be uppermost in your mind with the Sun shifting into Capricorn.  While it might not have the glitz and glamour of other signs, Capricorn Sun will focus on what is good for the family as well as for your career. The Scorpio Moon might be struggling with changing jobs or changing careers, but the outcome should you choose the change is positive.  Part of your difficulty is wondering what your legacy is, or what will people remember you for.  If you are doing the right thing by your spirit and working in your passion, your legacy will be remembered fondly by the people who truly count in your life.  Be true to yourself!

 

In your love life and friendships of all types intuition will reign supreme over the next couple of days.  You will intuit or pick up all kinds of signs.  Pay attention to the coincidences as they are directions on the roadmap of Life.  For some of you visual people you will get a Youtube version flashing through your brain.  For those of you who are auditory, just the right words will sing their way into your life.  Perhaps it will be whispered on the wind from an angel.  Perhaps it will come to you through the words of a song or while watching television.  This is dramatic shift time.  Change with the energy or you will be left behind to eat the dust!  

 

Reflection Questions!

  1. Where or in what area do I want to make positive changes in my life?
  2. How can I honor women and female energy?
  3. How well do I respect the flashes of insight that come to me?
  4. What do I truly want to manifest for my life?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to change positively and willingly with the solstice energy.

 

“We lift ourselves by our thought.

If you want to enlarge your life,

you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself.

Hold the ideal of yourself

as you long to be, always everywhere.”

(Orison Swett Marden 1850-1924)

 

 

Gratefully Dance in the Solstice Moonlight!

Full Moon Weather Effect

Full Moon affects the weather for 2 weeks! Have you noticed the cycle of changes in your area?  It seems to jump in with both feet when either the Full or New Moon occurs!

 

I have not studied astro-weather.  There are other astrologers who have a passion for it and specialize in this topic.  However, I live close to the Moon cycles.  Every Full Moon there is a change in the weather where I live.  The same thing can easily be predicted for the New Moon Phase. Now it seems to me there is a dramatic change in weather the day of either the Full or New Moon.  Then over the two weeks as the cycle grows, it gradually fades.  Hmm, spring-summer-fall-winter appears also in the Full Moon cycle and the New Moon cycle then!  Look at this process in your area!

 

 

For example we have had gently falling snow almost every day for the past couple of weeks.  We only receive 1-2 cm of accumulation.  Suddenly that has ceased and our temperatures have plummeted to the minus 20 C range.  Our weather forecaster tells us we can expect cold temperatures for the next two weeks beginning with today’s Full Moon.  Coincidence?  I don’t think so!

 

The Full and New Moon two week cycles are responsible for weather systems around the globe.  That is due to the Moon pull on the waters of Mother Earth.  That in turn affects the weather cycle.  Start watching in your area and soon you too will be able to predict changes.

 

Now I don’t know whether this is common practice or whether it is just in rural farming areas.  All our grocery stores have the yearly booklet Farmer’s Almanac at the check-outs.  I used to buy these every year for my father to put in the bathroom with it’s fascinating earthy articles.   My grandfather used to keep one by his chair and he studied it every day.  Little did he know it has the entire movement of the planets on each and every page.  Grampy just wanted the Moon phase because he gardened and farmed by the Moon phase.  Similarly many fishermen buy these because apparently fish bite according to the Moon phase. 

 

Imagine!  You can become a weather forecaster where you are, simply by understanding the 2 week Full and New Moon cycles!  So not only are human emotions vastly affected, but also our entire earth is wonderfully influenced by that gorgeous full moon which is shining in my window right now. 

 

 

Sometimes our light goes out, but

is blown again into instant flame

by an encounter with another human being.

Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those

who have rekindled this inner light.

(Albert Schweitzer)

 

Happy Friday Dance in the Full Moonlight!

Zodiac De-stress for Success

Fire, Earth, Air, Water energy de-stressers & refreshers.  How in heaven’s name can I handle all this stress?  With Pluto moving slowly into earthy Capricorn demanding that people change how they work the business of living, lots of people are going to be more and more stressed.  Pluto energy suggests that you have to clear away the debris of your life so that you can breathe more easily.  Pluto’s moving into Capricorn infers that in order to climb that mountain of living a quality lifestyle, we all are going to have to clean up our act. Hence, the global financial fallout around the world as well as the focus on reducing our collective environmental footprint.  Those issues affect each and every one of us.  We have to look ourselves in the mirror to determine the following two key factors.

 

 

1.  How well am I keeping my own debt load down?

2.  What can I personally do to eliminate pollution, to reduce my impact on this earth?

 

 

Those two key questions are like our heartbeat right now.  They are drumming away in the back of everyone’s mind, heart, soul and body.  They are causing huge amounts of stress for each of us. 

 

 

I just finished completing the write-up for a chart that I will be consulting on later today.  In my write-up I suggest some de-stressing techniques for a person who stands to be very stressed by this shift in Pluto energy.  I know her chart so I can be very specific with her.  For the rest of you, I’m going to generalize to the 4 major areas of energy.  Fire, Earth, Air, and Water all vibrate at different rates.  When the Moon is transiting these energy signs, it’s your pamper me time.  Take those 2.5 days and do what you can to de-stress since the energy will be easier for you.  So if your Moon is in a fire sign, then anytime the Moon is transiting a fire sign life should flow more easily for you. 

 

 

Fire Sun, Moon and Ascendant signs will be more emotionally stressed when the Moon is transiting either water or earth. You will feel more comfortable emotionally when the Moon moves through either a fire or an air sign.  Fire signs like to be actively doing something.  When you are stressed, get out and exercise.  Burn off that steamy pollution that is burning through your veins.  Secondly you need fire of some kind to relax.  If you have a fireplace or a firepit in your backyard, that’s a bonus.  If not, then light a candle.  Stare deeply into the fire and clear your mind of any mental debris.  Focus only on the fire.  Do not allow any thoughts to stray inside that fire boundary.

 

 

 

 

Earth Sun, Moon and Ascendant signs will be more emotionally stressed when the Moon is transiting either fire or air signs. You will feel more comfortable emotionally when the Moon moves through either a earth or water signs.  You like green and growing things.  Take a walk in nature when you are stressed.  Go to a greenhouse and soak up the green growing energy.  You’ll feel calmer by being among those plants.  At the very least sit down and have a conversation with your house plant.  Hug a tree and destress by telling the tree your latest problems!   

 

 

Air Sun, Moon and Ascendant signs will be more emotionally stressed when the Moon is transiting either water or earth. You will feel more comfortable emotionally when the Moon moves through either a fire or an air sign.  You will feel best with the breeze blowing by you.  Lay on the ground and watch the clouds float by.  Stare at the stars.  You need to see the wide open sky to realize your difficulties are not that large when you view the big picture. 

 

 

Water Sun, Moon and Ascendant signs will be more emotionally stressed when the Moon is transiting either fire or air signs. You will feel more comfortable emotionally when the Moon moves through either a earth or water signs.  Have you thought of laying in a pool of water and just floating.  Close your eyes and just relax.  Don’t let any thoughts pass through your brain.  Use thought stopping and tell your overly intuitive mind that this is your pampering time and you refuse to problem solve.   At the very least, lay in the tub.  It would be best if you could sit beside a babbling brook or watch the tide of an ocean sweep in and out.  For heaven’s sake steer clear of drowning your sorrows since you are the most likely to become addicted to substance abuse!

 

 

All Signs

 

  1. Have I ever thought of learning to meditate for a minimum of 30 minutes per day?
  2. How can I give my brain a rest?  What strategies can I make a habit so that when I am overwhelmed, I can take brief Moments of Joy, just focusing on the moment and the event and shutting out the rest of the world?
  3. What are my personal Moments of Joy? 
  4. How can I stay away from the color red or orange!

 

 

Affirmations:  I live a calm and peaceful life.  I intend to learn whatever lessons I have to learn quickly so that I can be peaceful in my heart, mind, body and soul.  I’m grateful for the mirror that life has to offer me, so I can work on my inner issues.
