Astrology of the Full Wolf Moon 1/1/2018 at 11˚ Cancer

Astrology of the Full Wolf Moon 1/1/2018 (2nd in some parts of the world) at 11˚ Cancer Time to howl at the Moon On New Year’s Day here in the USA’s wonderful West (it will be on the 2nd on the East Coast and beyond), there is a deeply emotional and powerful Full Moon. And it’s all the 1’s and 11’s. First day of the first month in a universal 11/2 year at 11˚ and 37’ — and 3+ 7 = 1. So, that’s a 1/1/11 at 11.1. And the Full Moon is aspecting Neptune in Pisces at 11˚. And it’s a Supermoon. And she is in her own sign, Cancer, adding to the power. Holy guacamole! What a way to start the calendar year!. Cancer is a water sign and is nurturing, sensitive, responsive, insecure and moody. The exact trine to Neptune in Pisces bringing in psychic sensitivity, mysticism imagination, more hypersensitivity and escapism. A wide trine to Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio adding emotional depth and complexity, obsession, and intensity to the alchemic pot. Also in the crucible of this Full Moon is the fact that a Full moon IS an opposition and this one is opposite to, not only the Sun in Capricorn, but also Venus, Lilith, Saturn and Pluto. The divine feminine presence of Venus and Lilith sandwiched between the core energy of the Sun, the transformative presence of Pluto and the mastery of Saturn in his own sign. Mix this all in the alchemical crucible of astrology and this gives us a POWERFUL kite configuration with the focal planet of the Kite being the Sun and it’s close...
Lilith and Your Inner Wild Woman

Lilith and Your Inner Wild Woman

In a Mentoring Circle I am a member of I was invited to make a Community SoulCollage© to help me to identify MY inner wild woman. My Lilith. She has been wanting to be heard more and more. I was also asked who I admire so I could begin to articulate what being a wild woman is for me. I’m not big into hero worship so couldn’t immediately name a person. But then I thought about it - a lot. Admire doesn’t have to mean love every part of them. Lilith in your chart represents your inner wild woman and in MY chart she is right next to (conjunct) my natal Gemini Moon. In the sign of the voice, the writer, the teacher. And in the house system I use most commonly, Porphry, she is in the Fifth house of children, the inner child, joy, drama and creativity.  You will see why this is important as you read on. For the purposes of this I am using Black Moon Lilith, the most commonly used Lilith in Astrology. Though I am exploring the other Liliths. Right now though it is Black Moon Lilith that is speaking to me. Lilith, in Hebrew tradition, was the first wife of Adam, who left Eden because she refused to lie under Adam. There is a lot more to the myth, of course, and you can read more about her in various places but I give you one example from ‘Where Does the Legend of Lilith Come From?’. And to I give you this quote from Living Lilith by M.Kelly Hunter. Lilith spoke to her through...
An Imperfect Greenie: Lilith For Earth Day!

An Imperfect Greenie: Lilith For Earth Day!

I’m a greenie at heart. I recycle. I use green cleaning products. I try to plant native plants that don’t use too much water here in the High Desert. I would like to install solar panels. I am planning on buying a water butt and collecting rain water. We paid money to well insulate our home. I buy mostly organic. I try to be kind to the earth. And I am a humanitarian, a supporter of equality and a healer. But I am not perfect. I could do more. My one extra act so far for this Earth Day is to order some free seeds to plant wildflowers that bees love. I would post the link so you could also order but unfortunately the promotion has ended. But there are several suggestions on this page of the Earth Day site. Or you could donate or sign up as a volunteer activist. I am considering it. But this post is not about beating myself up for not doing enough. This post is about how the astrology is pulling us to do more. And about the Dalai Lama. And his, now famous, quote. “The World Will Be Saved By the Western Woman” And the slogan for Earth Day 2015 “It’s Our Turn To Lead” And why the astrology points to this call. It’s Our Turn To Lead. Firstly, I do understand that what the Dalai Lama meant by ‘western woman’ has not been quantified. And this in itself is the subject of some debate! But I just don’t want to go down that rabbit hole today. Let’s just say, for the sake...
Music Of The Spheres: What Astrology Means For Me

Music Of The Spheres: What Astrology Means For Me

“The heavenly motions…are nothing but a continuous song for several voices, perceived not by the ear but by the intellect, a figured music which sets landmarks in the immeasurable flow of time” ~ Kepler When I work with my BE In Tune With The Moon Circle I often speak of the Sabian Symbols when I speak of the Astrology of the New and Full Moons. The Sabian Symbols were channelled by clairvoyant, Elsie Wheeler, to Astrologer, Marc Edmund Jones, in 1925 in Balboa Park, San Diego. Jones created a pack of 360 blank cards for each degree of the zodiac and Wheeler channelled a symbol for each degree. The cards were marked with a very small symbol for each degree and chosen at random. Astrologers Dane Rudhyar, in his book An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and It’s 360 Symbolic Phases, and, more recently, Lynda Hill in her book, The Sabian Symbols, An Oracle, amongst others. But I am very grateful that these two books came into my world and these are the two I reference when looking at the symbols. And today I discuss only one symbol. The symbol for todays New Moon at 28˚ 25′ Aries. To find the symbol for the degree we always go to the next degree. Therefore, we look at the symbol for 29˚ Aries for this New Moon. And that symbol is “Music Of The Spheres”  And this is what Astrology is for me. The meaning is layered. But Lynda Hill suggests that ‘The Spheres’ in this symbol refer to the planets in our solar system. And then she speaks of Pythagorus and...

The Age Of The Crone

The Crone is also an archetypal figure, a Wise Woman. She is marginalized by her exclusion from the reproductive cycle,[1] and her proximity to death places her in contact with occult wisdom. As a character type, the crone shares characteristics with the hag.~ Wikipedia Aging. It happens to us all. Women all inevitably move into the age of the Crone.   We’re born, we grow, we learn, we teach, we shrink, we die.   It’s a part of the human experience.   As a woman we move into the age of the Crone as we pass through menopause. Our body changes, our mind changes. It’s a major life shift. For me it has also been a major spiritual shift.   Under the Patriarchy the age of the Crone has for too long been marginalized. Often portrayed as malicious or sinister.   In Wicca she symbolizes ‘the Dark Goddess, the dark of the moon, the end of a cycle’ and in some ‘New Age’ circles this is portrayed as a time of freedom, wisdom and personal power. (Wikipedia). And we all have her within us, men and women.   I’m 53. Very much in Menopause. My cycles have ended and my reproductive years have gone. I now not only feel my body changing I also feel my soul and spirit changing. And the messages I am receiving are to embrace and to celebrate this time.   In an astrological reading from a mentor I am reminded to become the elder and to teach the wisdom I have gleaned. In a dream I buried my child self, although I was actually...
