Follow Your Heart: Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius 2017

Follow Your Heart: Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius 2017

I’ve been sitting with the Lunar Eclipse chart for ages now (and the Solar Eclipse chart but more on that later). I like to find a central theme that encompasses the whole and it was right there on the wall of my office. The simple sign that cost me a few bucks at TJ Maxx to honor my 15 year old soul part that I have been reintegrating since a soul retrieval session with my friend and Shamanic teacher, Paula, back in January 2015 when I was going through a real dark night of the soul. Follow Your Heart. Sounds so easy right? But we get so tied up in the mind fucks. The constant voices from your upbringing. The family, the culture, the institutions. Those voices in your head that say you don’t fit in because those mind fucks don’t feel right. The constant contorting of the self to fit in or to loudly say, ‘I’m different’. The pain of that 15 year old soul part is back today. Shamanic work keeps working, if you allow it. That girl that knew how unique she was, as we all are, yet who desperately wanted to belong. Isn’t that what we all want? The message of this eclipsing of our emotional body is clear. It’s time to let go of (south node and Full Moon) or eclipse all those mind fucks from your lineage. All those messages that are not yours. It’s time to let go of the need to set yourself apart, to hold yourself aloof, because of the fear of opening your heart and truly following your heart’s...
Are You Ready For Powerful Conversations?

Are You Ready For Powerful Conversations?

I had a coach once who used to talk about powerful conversations.   Deeply authentic sharing with no attachment to outcome What does that mean? It means digging deep and sharing the feelings we usually keep hidden. It means owning up to where we have not been fully open. It means not assuming or worrying what the response or reaction will be. It means delving into the depths of your soul and being vulnerable. I had one of those conversations this morning. It’s one of the things that’s going to come up. If you are doing the work. If you are slowing down and going within with the stationing Mercury retrograde. If you are feeling the DESIRE for change that’s coming from the current Grand Trine in Fire. Seeking your truth, wanting more joy in your life, wanting to move deeper into partnership with others. If you are feeling the Full Moon Eclipse approaching. And if you are paying attention.   And that’s what’s at the depth of the building energies.   They are breaking us wide open. Exposing our hearts and souls.   Where is the ‘I’ in the ‘we’? That’s the BIG question.   It all came up for me this morning. I bared my soul to my husband. We reflected on my place in the we that is our family unit. We powerfully talked about how we see each other. How we can better move forward in PARTNERSHIP.   It feels deeper already.   And this is what I invite you to do.   Reflect on your place in the ‘we’ - whatever that means for...

Unexpected Changes and New Beginnings

At the start of this month we had both the fourth of seven Pluto/Uranus squares AND a Hybrid Solar New Moon Eclipse at 11 degrees of Scorpio. For many reasons this was a pivotal moment. For some, me included, that shift was not what we planned or expected. But let’s quickly look at the Astrology first. I promise to try not to overwhelm!   The Pluto/Uranus square was, as I said, the fourth of seven exact squares. You can see when the others were and will be at http://www.lunarplanner.com/Uranus-Pluto-Square/. In Capricorn (Pluto) and Aries (Uranus) respectively these squares are bringing up hidden matters and creating upheaval and sudden changes at a personal and a Global level. I won’t go into depth about the Global changes as I want to talk about the Square and the Chakras. Or at least this latest square and the heart Chakra. On the Radical Virgo blog, Joyce Mason reports that Serbian astrologer Aleksandar Imsiragic said that the seven exact hits of Uranus square Pluto, the first on June 24 2012, correspond to realignment of our seven chakras. This last square, therefore corresponds to the heart Chakra. Hold that thought while I also mention the Eclipse.   Firstly New Moons represent new beginnings and many of us set intentions on the New Moon. Secondly this was an Eclipse also which means it is an uber powerful time of new beginnings. Thirdly this was a Hybrid New Moon Eclipse which means it was conjunct the North Node of the Moon, the North Node of Fate, our karmic potential. Therefore this represented a leap into our souls...
