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!

Patterns in our lives Saros Cycle 136

July 22, 2009 at 9:42 am | Posted in 3. New Moon Vision Board, Equinox or Eclipse | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Patterns and cycles in our lives repeat themselves.  What were the main issues of your life approximately 18-20 years ago? You are about to spiral along the same theme or issues lines.  Will you choose to grow this time?  For you older folks go back 40 years then move forward 20 years and then move forward to today.  Do you see a common theme happening?  This eclipse is a power portal time to change your personal energy dynamic and spiral upwards. 


When one is looking for a pattern or a cycle, one has to begin at the seeding time or the “egg time” or the “birthing time” or the “spring time” to get a handle on what this truly means.   The eclipse of July 22, 2009 began on June 14, 1360 at 5:56 UT.  Currently we are approximately 52% of the way through this cycle or during the summer time of this particular pattern in humanities collective life. 


So what was happening historically during the very first of the Saros Cycle 136 back in 1360?  Here’s what wikipedia says if you wish to follow up.  Eclipses often show the end of kingdoms, the end of political reigns and new beginnings of phoenix rising nations and leaders.  This is no exception. 


Yah but what does the original birth chart show?  What is documented historically are the polarity points of war and peace.  The original chart is a bowl shaped whose challenge is to integrate Capricorn empire building energy.  Uh-oh and our dear friend Pluto happens to be sitting in opposition today to the Sun, Moon, Pluto conjunction of the beginning of the seeding of Saros Cycle 136. 


Not only that but the leading planet in 1360 is Saturn in Leo conjunct Chiron (wounded healer) roaring for supremacy at any cost.  Hmm, sounds familiar with some political factions around the globe.  Governments, you say you want peace and you create war to get it?  That smacks of polarity points in my world.


Then there is Mars at 26 degrees Aries, it’s natural home.  Mars is adding positive fuel to the fire of the New Moon conjunction of Sun and Moon at 0 degrees Cancer.  Cancer as you all know is protecting home and hearth.  So in a nutshell we have wars to protect home and hearth and all we hold dear.  The solution is Pluto in Capricorn or lava flow to erase and eradicate what no longer works in the world.  The solution to a bowl shaped way of operating is to raise consciousness and integrate the qualities of the opposition according to Marc Edmond Jones. 


Yah but what does this mean to you personally?  It’s de-throning time.  Whoever is the power behind the political throne in your house, or in your business will have to change how they operate.  If we are wise, we will learn to compromise.  Cancer Sun conjunct Cancer Moon conjunct Mercury in today’s eclipse is demanding we all work as a family unit or as a team.  It’s time for the bully who leads the parade to go.  It’s a new world and people will expect and demand that we work as ONE team, one family.  The voices will be heard whether it’s around your kitchen table or at the office or in the political arena.   


Reflection Questions:

  1.  What are 4 things you can do to compromise work as a team at home?
  2. What are 4 things you can do compromise and work as a team at work?
  3. What are you going to do to compromise and integrate the warring parts of yourself so that you are at peace with the wonderful person you are today?
  4. Have you forgiven yourself for past ways of acting?  Do you not know you did the best you could given the information you had in the past?
  5. What were the themes in your life 20 years ago?  40 years ago?  60 years ago?
  6. Have you completed your New Moon Vision Board?


Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to accept myself for who I am today.  I AM grateful for the lessons of the past for they have helped me become the wonderful person I am today.  I live in the NOW.

Aquarius Sun, Sagittarius Moon Yes We Can

Transformer Time! This energy makes the ideal real.  Air and Fire energy change is in the air for the Inauguration of Barack Obama.  Coincidence?  I don’t think so!  Is it a coincidence that he is the first black to become president the day after the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death?  Not at all.  It is the universe unfolding as it should and pointing us directly to the kite formation when Obama takes his oath to become president.  That exact moment in time sees the Moon shift from Scorpio to Sagittarius indicating a shift from the depths of sorrow and heaviness of Pluto to the peak of happiness and joy and lightheartedness that Sagittarius Moon brings to us all.  Hope is one of the keywords for Sagittarius which is ruled by Jupiter the planet of expansion. 


Here’s where this hope and this energy leads us today around the world.  The Sun just moved into Aquarius which is the rebel, the transformer, the humanitarian, the view of the future.  Today’s inauguration sees a lineup of 5 planets plus the North Node in Aquarius.  Anytime you have the energy of 3 planets you have a surge of energy.  Today’s lineup will see a tidal wave of future oriented humanitarian energy that will impact the world.  Not only that but this group of planets gets positive and out of bounds Moonshine energy suggesting that this truly will be a government of heart energy.  So this is the earth kite energy around Barack Obama’s team today.  They should be able to fly high in spite of all the difficulties.  They bring practical problem solving to the table.  They will be the do-ers.  They will overcome any adversity with the help of all of us.  Keep them in your prayers for success for their mission.  Prayers are powerful energy folks!


What of Obama himself?  His Sun is in Leo.  His Moon is in Gemini.  His Ascendant is in Aquarius.  Those are the three main indicators to a person’s character.  He brings lots of fire and air energy to the position.  His 7th house of relationships is his strongest house.  No wonder the man knows how to build communities!  No wonder he uses the internet effectively to do it with his ASC in Aquarius.  He has a grand water trine which suggests that he is highly intuitive, creative and filled with heart intentions.  He is the one we have been waiting for to give us the direction, and we are the ones he has been waiting for to build the caring communities.  This is no coincidence that you are a part of this transformation the elders told of generations ago. 


If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in fire signs of Aries, Leo, 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 glowing in this fire sign. 


Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for astrology showing us that there are cycles and patterns and no such thing as coincidences.  They are signposts if we choose to read them on the roadmap through life.


In your family life and at the office this is risk taking and gambling time.  This is light hearted laughter and playing time.  So expect that energy around your home and at the office.  If you tend to be quiet, then that is okay too.  But take advantage of the energy if you want to venture further into the waters of life.  It’s okay.  You no longer have to be afraid.  Take the first baby step forward.  Laugh at yourself if you trip.  The energy of laughter helps to change the dynamics.  You should have lots of fire energy to help you through the next couple of days.  The air of Sun Aquarius will help that fire energy to burn brighter.  This is a hopeful day.  Whatever you hope for, dream it, then make your dream become reality.  But first you must allow yourself the dream!


In your love life and friendships of all types playful energy of Sagittarius Moon is always fun.  This is outspoken and honest energy that you bring to the table today.  So speak your mind but do it with humor and laughter.  The Aquarius Sun might see you focusing more on the group you belong to rather than just you and your main squeeze.  How do you fit in with your inner circle of friends as a couple?  How does your family accept your honey?  It’s time to work on that!


Reflection Questions! 

  1. How do you live, feel and act in your social circle of friendships?
  2. How can you take your personal power and use it for the greater good of society?
  3. What are you willing to take risks on for the next month?
  4. Are you willing to gamble on your personal success?  Then what do you want to do with your life?  What is your primary dream?  Make it happen for yourself! 


Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to make my main dream of _____ a reality by taking the first step and doing _______.


If we are to achieve a richer culture,

rich in contrasting values,

we must recognize the

whole gamut of human potentialities,

and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric,

one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.

(Margaret Mead)



Moment of Joy!

The Future is NOW.  Yes we can!

Dance in the Mercury Retrograde Moonlight!

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

Re-do, re-clarify, re-write, re-edit, recall, re-word, re-travel, re-schedule.  The RE is back!  Mercury Retrograde time is here!  It’s time to communicate with your inner self as this is prime reflection time until February 1st when Mercury/Hermes starts to move forward again. 


If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, you noticeably will be affected by the emotional energy over the next three weeks.  The rest of us will have moments of our day which will be influenced by the Mercury moving backwards or retrograde in this air sign. 


Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for Mercury retrograde three times a year cycle.  Mercury rules communications of all sorts and empowers us to see what type of communication we feel empowered by.  It is the time of writers and deep reflection on the messages you give to others.


I do not believe God, Creator, the Universe, the ONE has anything happen by mistake.  No we are given this gift three times for three weeks a year to slow down the chaotic rhythm in our lives.  Instead of spinning your wheels and trying to go faster, go on vacation, hug a tree, journal, reflect and enjoy the rhythms of nature once more.  Use this time to listen to your heart, your soul, your spirit.  Be creative and right brained.  Make music, write poetry, be super artistic.  This is your time … just you and the flow of inner universal energy.  Re-vel in it.  Find the joy in it.  Seek the happiness in this gift of three weeks of time three times a year = 9.  Now this isn’t a coincidence either, but I truly do not know much about numerology.  So hopefully someone else will interpret that for us.   


Yah but you have to do things over and over again.  Oh well, live with it.  It needed to be improved upon anyway. The challenge of this particular Mercury retrograde is that it occurs first opposite the Full Moon in Cancer.  That suggests to me that we will have to be very clear on messages we make or give to the people in our family and extended family.  There will be all kinds of mis-takes, mis-interpretations, missed opportunities otherwise.  Since Mercury goes retrograde through Aquarius then through Capricorn, we have to re-learn those messages he has been trying to give us.  Those have to do with humanitarian causes, foresight, and practical problem solving.  We still aren’t clear on what we as a global race must do.  Nor are we clear on what we should do within our own communities and homes on these issues.  So we are forced to rethink our original solutions. 


You think you have it bad?  Think of all our political leaders.  All the forward thinking ideas they want to advance during this next 3 weeks will have to be redone and revisited.  Obama wants to hit the ground running after his inauguration, but instead all his well thought out plans likely will run into all kinds of roadblocks that for some reason he and his team just didn’t think about.   Harper wants to bring down the budget for Canada and stay in as prime minister later this month.  However the house next sits during Mercury retrograde, so all kinds of mis-interpretation of communication will occur. 


Do not invest in the stockmarket during Mercury retrograde.  It will continue to fall until after February 1st.  Besides, anything you buy during Mercury retrograde, you re-think about after the retrograde period and you aren’t quite so in love with it.  Do you have to make phone calls?  Be prepared to call them back over and over before you connect.  If you do connect right off the bat, ensure they repeat what you said and follow up with the information in writing.  Someone will mis-interpret otherwise.  Problems with your transportation systems?  Make sure your vehicle is well tuned up.  Allow extra time anyway.  You might miss your exit, miss your connections, miss meeting the person you were supposed to meet.  Problems with your internet connection?  Oh yah, make sure your anti-virus programs are up to date.  Problems with your computer?  That’s the way it goes my friends!  Do not initiate anything.  For heavens sakes, do not sign any contracts. Forewarned is forearmed! Say some extra prayers for patience for yourself every day!


Reflection Questions! 

  1. How patient are you?
  2. Are you prepared for 3 weeks of inner reflection?
  3. How can you ensure your message is very clear?
  4. How can you ensure the message you receive is what is really intended? 


Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to be very clear with people during Mercury retrograde periods.

Double hot air energy!  Mental gymnastics?  Imagination working overtime?  Creative thinking time is here!  You are going to have to sift through what is real and what is BS in this hot air balloon time.  The Moon shifts into Aquarius at 8:03 MDT causing us all to shift our emotional energy.  If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant are in air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, 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 air sign. 



Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for this double shot of air and creative thinking energy.  Perhaps it will help overcome some of the communication restrictions around Mercury retrograde!  I have a couple of projects to work on over the next 48 hours which require creativity and innovation.  Now is when I choose to work on them, knowing the energy that is out there.  



In your family life and at the office this will certainly be a more chatty time.  The Aquarius Moon brings unconventional thinking into the mix, so don’t be shocked at anything anyone says.  They are just thinking outside the box and perhaps looking into the future.  The Libra Sun is going to be dancing around yelling, “yah but” as it tries to balance out the unusual ideas.  Venus ruled Libra just wants everyone to feel comfortable.  Uranus rules Aquarius and unfortunately is not in a great aspect to Mercury to be heard.  Then of course Mercury is retrograde and is just distorting all communications right now.  Unusual ideas jiggle us out of our conventional ruts and allow us to dream big.  If the kids are dreaming big, don’t discourage them.  Dreams are the beginning of manifesting reality!  This is prime time for seeing your life through the eyes of the eagle.  Dream big!



In your love life and friendships of all types hang on to your hat because the wind will grab it otherwise.  It is likely that your honey or friends will be full of windy and futuristic notions that could be a wild gale force wind.  Just nod your head wisely and wait for 48 hours.  Don’t burst their creative bubble of heated air!  They are just trying to get their kiteful of ideas off the ground!  With Pluto shifting we need some unusual ideas to carry us forward into the future.



Reflection Questions! 

  1. Why do you consider this idea is so unusual?
  2. Who can you share this creativity idea with? 
  3. Who can you trust to bounce unusual ideas off?
  4. Where do these ideas fit into your personal big picture thinking? 



My profession is always to be alert,

to find God in nature,

to know God’s lurking places,

to attend to all the oratorios and the operas in nature.

(Henry David Thoreau)


2008 Canada Election Race!  How are the Moon in Aquarius and Uranus are likely to affect our 2008 election and the various leaders over the next couple of days?  For the remainder of time until we complete the election, I’ll be using the composite chart of each candidate and the Canada birth chart.





Canada’s birth chart has no planets in Aquarius.  However Chiron is transiting Aquarius, so expect health care issues to fly high being front and centre stage.  People will want the reassurance that our economy is healthy.  Uranus is in a stellium in Canada’s birthchart.  In other words, it appears like one of a set of triplets along with the Moon and Sun.  This stellium is in Cancer suggesting that any innovative ideas won’t be well accepted by the public over the next 48 hours.  With Pluto exactly opposite that stellium, those healthy solutions that are practical in everyone’s home will be what Canadians want to hear about. 



Elizabeth May [Green] has no planets in Aquarius in her combined chart.   However, May will be doing the feisty speech dance with her teesquare to Neptune in Libra.  Both men and women will be listening to her.  She is painting a picture of what the future looks like.  Her forward thinking ideas are touching deeply within the hearts of families.  Peter McKay needs to watch out as this lady is definitely making significant emotional inroads in this constituency. 



Jack Layton [NDP] has his Chiron in Aquarius in his combined chart.  It’s in a square to the combined stellum of Venus, Sun, Saturn and Mercury retrograde.  The next 48 hours people are not going to want to hear his message and he could be wounded by it it; if he takes things too far in attack mode.  He will advance in the polls if he sticks with advocating on issues that pertain to homes, women and helping to transform the lives of families.        



Stephen Harper [PC] has no planets in Aquarius in his combined chart.  The Moon in Aquarius is affecting his tee-square that focuses directly on the right and wrong perception of Canadian men and women.  Harper, a fixed Taurus, is staying true to his birth sign and being bullish about moving his ideas.  He says he is staying the course on his economic platform.  People want to hear how he is going to expand that platform and help to mitigate the economic strife they are under when they try to balance their household budgets.  Harper is not hearing the electorate at his own peril.  The polls will reflect that for the next 48 hours.  Stop being arrogant in your intellectual brilliance, Harper.  Canadians believe they do have some of the answers too. 



Stephane Dion [Liberal] has Chiron in his combined chart with Canada.  That Chiron is square to his combine stellium so he could be wounded by his platform unless he shifts his agenda for the next couple of days.  His combined Uranus is getting a shot of futuristic problem solving.  If he sticks to being passionate about his unconventional ideas, people will listen to him.  That’s where he differs dramatically from the prime minister.  Dion is perceived by the electorate as having a huge heart and demonstrating his love for his country.  It is his passion and his out-of-the-box thinking that will move him ahead in the polls over the next 48 hours. 



Dance in the Creative Moonlight!

Fire energy mixed with Air energy roar into flames.  Fun and games weekend!  The Moon has gambled by slipping into Sagittarius.  This fire sign is ruled by Jupiter, the king of fun, games and gambling.  Jupiter likes to expand stuff so there could be a lot of hot air blowing around ideals and philosophies.  So let’s examine what role Sagittarius and Jupiter play in each of our candidates’ charts. 


Canada’s birth chart has no planets in Sagittarius.  Jupiter is transiting Capricorn quincunx Venus making women’s issues quite contentious.  The women are watching to see what the leaders have to offer for their homes, their families and their security.  Women could well be the unknown vote.  Hello male politicians.  Women control 85% of household spending decisions.  So if you are concerned about the economy, you had better be looking to get their vote!


Elizabeth May [Green] has no planets in Sagittarius.  The Moon will quincunx her Jupiter this morning so that she might feel the heat from last night’s debate.  She did an awesome job of coming out with factual data and definitely took her place as a leader among other leaders.  My best guess is that she is making the Conservatives sit up and take notice that she is a strong force to be reckoned with.  You go girl!


Jack Layton [NDP] has his Chiron in Sagittarius.  He might be wounded from his debate responses last night or he can use the square to Saturn to restrict and fine tune his focus.  This is further echoed by the fact that his natal Jupiter has a square to Chiron.  It’s time for him to reassess and narrow down what he wants to say during the next two weeks.  Shine the spotlight on the key issues for success Jack!


 Stephen Harper [PC] has his Jupiter being crossed by the Moon during the debates last night.  Unfortunately for him his Jupiter is square his Chiron so he was deeply wounded and feeling the frontal attack by the other four leaders.  His Venus is opposite Sagittarius, so he likely will not make any ground with women voters over the next couple of days.  His pole results will likely feel this downward shift.  Hello Stephen, women will be your nemesis on election day!


Stephane Dion [Liberal] has his North Node in Sagittarius.  The Moon transit will help people to sit up and take notice of this stately man.  His natal Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Leo suggests that at a deep gut level, he will be able to passionately engage Canadians over the next couple of days.  Stephane, the stars will bring lots of positive energy to your side on election day.  You just need to tap into it!


If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant are 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 burning brightly in this fire sign. 


Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for the high rate of energy I’ll feel over the next couple of days.  It’s light hearted and laughing energy which will make our weekend wonderful!  What are we talking about in our household?  A Sagittarius trip plan we are making for a few days run-away to the mountains over Thanksgiving!  My hubby will now be open to the idea, so I’m doing what I can to make it a reality. 


In your family life and at the office fuel the fun with light hearted quips.  People will want to kick up their heels and have some fun.  Your office staff might be playing jokes on one another.  If you are the boss, how about you playing jokes on them first!  Take a walk in those gorgeous autumn leaves and smell deeply that smell of fall as the earth gets ready for a well deserved rest.  Pile those leaves up and then roll in them like you did when you were a kid.  Your kids will love the playfulness.  Hey and how about finding one of those corn mazes to get lost in? Just go out and do it and your kids will love you forever!


In your love life and friendships of all types this is expansion time for you and your main squeeze.  Your honey will be generous with you and you will want to be generous with him or her.  That’s Jupiter/Sag energy.  Throw in a dose of lovely Venus ruled Libra and life will be a fun filled weekend if you play your cards right!


Reflection Questions! 

  1. Who can I pull a joke on today?
  2. Where can I make people laugh over the next couple of days?
  3. How can I plan and choose to play and have fun in the next 48 hours?
  4. When am I going to lighten up and kick up my heels?  It’s up to me!


Glorious gamboling with life and

Dance in the Moonlight!

Air energy

Yin-Yang double air energy.  Vision Board time with the Libra New Moon joining up with the Libra Sun.  This is perfect timing for any new affirmations you wish to manifest in your life!  Libra Sun time attempts to bring the Authentic person to the foreground. 







If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant are in air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, 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 air sign. 


Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for this shot of double air energy as I have many ideas that need to be written about and conveyed.  Interesting that during this time I go to visit with my Libra friend to help her get back in balance.  We both have been too busy to make it happen before now.  Coincidence?  I don’t think so! 


In your family life and at the office Yin-yang energy.  Everything in the universe is about energy.  Think of everything you have to deal with.  There is light and there is dark decisions or ways of thinking.  You get to choose if you wish to move in the path of light and kindness and balance, or do you choose to use the dark energy that surrounds you?


In your love life and friendships of all types attempt to balance your relationships of all types during these 2 days.  Here’s something to think about.  If you are totally balanced on a teeter totter, you are inert.  In order to have energy movement of any kind really you have to be moving first one way and then another.  Libra energy clearly shows us that balancing act we all make between the positive and negative in our lives.  Since Libra is ruled by gentle Venus your focus will frequently move to those you love.  Now Venus has moved into seductive Scorpio.  Use the most of this Venus energy to plan your seduction scene if you want to engage a honey.


Manifesting Prime time! Create your vision board of anything new you want to bring to your life over the course of the next 28 day New Moon cycle!  Move one step closer to your perfect world.  It’s up to you to manifest it!


Reflection Questions! 

  1. Make a list of 10 or more people who are closest to you whom you love.
  2. Who of those people do you trust to be in your inner circle of deep friendship? Put them in the category of Friends # 1
  3. Who does not make your inner circle of loving people who support you when life has its dark moments? Put them in the mental category of Friends # 2
  4. Who are you focusing your time energy on?   Friends #1 or Friends #2
  5. Love yourself first.  How on earth can you possibly take care of others if you do not take care of you?  On a scale of 1 – 10 how well did you pamper yourself and love yourself yesterday?  If you are not at least at a 6, then start pampering yourself today!


So how much do our Canadian politicians focus on balance, justice and doing the right thing?  Let’s look at Libra and Venus in their charts.

Canada’s birth chart has no planets in Libra.  Venus is in Gemini with a square to Jupiter suggesting that the country as a whole truly does not do well in meeting the gentler basic needs of women.  For example, since my girlfriend completed her masters in the late 1980’s she among others have pushed for a national day care system so that we could ensure high standards of care and education for our young children.  That would help working mothers to feel more secure.  It has been promised by both the Liberals and the Conservatives for close to 30 years.  Has either party delivered yet?  Not even close.  They just make empty promises.  It definitely is a family need and women’s need.  Hello politicians.  Women make up 52% of the voting public and this election they could upset the complacency of the parties.  Get out and vote women and drag 5 friends with you!  This has been ignored long enough! 


Elizabeth May [Green] has Neptune in Libra.  Mars transits Neptune in a few days giving May a shot of adrenaline to add to her spiritual quest of balancing the environment.  Neptune if the focal planet of her Teesquare, suggesting she is driven to overcome all odds.  She is very focused on moving Canada towards a more balanced approach in environmental issues.  Her Venus conjunct Mercury conjunct Uranus suggests that not only will she fight for women’s issues, but she will also have some super innovative ways of achieving and overcoming the difficulties. When she gets elected, she will be a strong voice for women’s issues which have largely been ignored by the PCs and the Liberals for 30 years people! 


Jack Layton [NDP] has Neptune conjunct his Mars in Libra.  Expect feistiness during the next couple of weeks.  His birthchart Mars is about to be transitted by Mars.  He definitely will hold his own during the debates this week.  His solar arc Pluto is almost exactly conjunct Neptune inferring that as leader he is totally revamping how the NDP conduct business.  He could very well be a force to be reckoned with that Pluto energy getting another dose of energy from the New Moon.  His Venus is trine his planets in Libra suggesting that he sees himself as a staunch supporter of women’s rights.  It appears that he does not speak with forked tongue according to his astrology chart.  He sincerely just wants to do the right Libra thing and bring justice and more peace to the people of this country.      


Stephen Harper [PC] has his North Node in Libra inferring that this is his karma to learn about balanced agendas of any kind.  His Venus is in Gemini suggesting that while he says one thing about women’s issues, he acts in a different way.  Hmm, seems like forked tongue time to me!  He truly believes he is doing the right thing, but perhaps the women voters will think differently.  For example, while he is running women candidates, has he ever given women in his party major portfolios?  Nope, he does not trust the women to deliver.  Nor do the women in his party appear to have a voice that is heard since he hamstrings them and keeps their opinions hidden in the closet.  Hmm, it seems he keeps the opinions of all his party in the closet, hidden away from us voters.  Personally, I always worry when I see families who have secrets.  Usually it opens up a pandora’s box of historical problems they aren’t prepared to deal with. 


Stephane Dion [Liberal]  had his birthday yesterday.  That should give him a shot of extra energy as the Sun passed over his sun.  The Moon transits his 4 planets over the next couple of days which should also help him.  There is no question this man is sincere about what he believes with all these planets in Libra.  It represents justice for all, doing the right thing, and balance.  If he focused just on those words, he likely would swing the electorate more his way.  He clearly likes and supports women with his Venus in Libra conjunct his Sun and his Neptune.  Libras are into relationships and working as a group.  So if he can get his party to paddle the canoe in the same direction, he could well be a major force.  His solar arc Jupiter and Pluto suggests that he has spent much time expanding his party and restructuring how he and they operate as a team. He has 2 weeks to get his locomotive steamed up and engaging people across the country.  He just simply is Mr. Nice Guy. 


For it was not into my ear you whispered,

But into my heart.

It was not my lips you kissed,

But my soul.
