Astrology of the Sagittarius Full Moon May 29 2018, 8 10′. Break Free From Alienation

Astrology of the Sagittarius Full Moon May 29 2018, 8 10'. Break Free From Alienation On May 29th we have a Full Moon at 8° 10′ Sagittarius. A Full Moon is an opposition between the Moon and Sun and the Sun, therefore, will be at 8° 10’ Gemini. The Moon’s nodes will be at 7° 33′ Aquarius (south node — the past) and Leo (the North) making a tight mystic rectangle configuration with the Full Moon comprising Fire (Sagittarius and Leo) and Air (Gemini and Aquarius). Fire and air can consume all in its path as air fans the flames. It’s a burning down to clear out ready for the new to arise. A Full Moon is a completion and release. The ongoing triggering of the Nodes in Leo and Aquarius that began with the total Eclipse on August 21st last year is bringing another phase of completion. A fortunate one because the Mystic Rectangle is a beautiful mix of harmonious energies. The Moon in Sagittarius is about seeing the bigger picture and releasing that which is stopping you shooting your arrows of personal freedom into the future. The opposition to the Gemini Sun will bring in some information to help you to gallop into the that future. The South Node in Aquarius is a point of release of feelings of disconnection and alienation to help you to open your heart to true connection and joy. There’s a wildness to this Full Moon that is like a wild horse straining to be free of the ties that bind. Retrograde Saturn is at the mid point of the Moon and South Node...
A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Claiming Freedom.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Claiming Freedom.

I’m a Freedom Guide There, I said it out loud. I help women claim their freedom. Freedom to BE. Freedom to speak their TRUTH. Freedom to transition into a life they LOVE. Freedom to be WARRIORS for themselves. Freedom to live a multi-colored, fantastic and magical life. Freedom to embrace CHANGE.  Freedom to CREATE a COURAGEOUS life! So what’s the funny thing? Back in 2010 I was coaching a Social Media Marketing franchise and I won a coaching session with a lovely woman called Britt Michaelian, who is no longer coaching. Through her process she saw me as the Freedom Coach. I never claimed it. I won’t go into why. It doesn’t matter. All roads lead to Rome! What do I mean by that? I mean that all of our experiences mean something. We might not know what or why at the time. So why claim it NOW? Because I’m ready. But the funny part is how I came back to it. I was on a call for a group I am a member of and the facilitator had us do an exercise that ultimately led us to pick a word or phrase from a ton that we wrote out. And what jumped out for me? You guessed it. Freedom Guide. I laughed out loud and thanked my Guides and the Universe for waking me up to what I am. Freedom is one of my Core Values. Always has been and always will be. Freedom can mean many different things to many different people but for me it means the freedom to be fully me, to speak my truth and...
Hard Astrology Aspects: You Choose How To Respond!

Hard Astrology Aspects: You Choose How To Respond!

I sometimes feel that I am a little Pollyanna like with Astrology compared to others. My general optimism comes partly from four planets in Sagittarius but I DO have plenty in my chart to dampen that and I DO have my ‘bad’ days. But my belief is that it’s all about how we respond and react to the energies. I have been through enough had aspects in my life to KNOW that things get tough. But I also know that nothing lasts and we get to choose whether to sink into despair or to look at the bleak side. Pluto brings death and transformation of all kinds and Uranus brings revolution and sudden shocks and change. These two are the slowest of planets and, therefore, some people are lucky enough not to have too many of these transits, especially the conjunctions (where the planet crosses the same point that a planet in your birth chart is at). But, because of the make up of my chart, I have had BOTH planets cross almost every planet and luminary (Sun/Moon) in my chart. So I get it. I have been through almost every hard aspect possible in my 55 years. I lost my Dad and gave birth to my eldest daughter under my Pluto square aspect. I went through the deepest depression of my life as Pluto crossed my Ascendant and my Saturn (they are very close together) but I also went through the time of greatest growth as I faced the lessons Pluto was asking me to. On both occasions! And the aspects to my own chart in mid 1989...
What The Heck Does It Mean To Be Enlightened???

What The Heck Does It Mean To Be Enlightened???

My ‘enlightenment‘ came into question during a Facebook Private Message exchange a couple of days ago. It was an interesting case where I responded to a persons PM promoting her business (this person had done it before and I had ignored - but there had been NO other engagement since 2011) but this was right on a fiery Leo Full moon and I am fiery anyway!) with the following: ‘This is spam. Just like emailing without permission’ and when she responded with an apology but said she ‘thought I might like to help a fellow business woman out’ I responded ‘I don’t help out fellow business women who only engage with me when they want something.’. Was I a little sharp? Yes, probably. What can I say, it was a BIG Leo Full Moon on Tuesday and I am not perfect. I had forgotten about it by Wednesday morning but then this happened…..   Her MOTHER messaged me telling me to ‘check your attitude when it comes to what you propose that you are about and what you really are about’ and that they were ‘deeply connected to many in my ‘group‘.’ When I asked if that was a threat she also said ‘I am not threatening you with my connections just trying to awaken you. Who seems who professes to be so enlightened’. There was more but I only set the scene because this set me to thinking what it really MEANS to be enlightened.   So, let’s start with the etymology from Dictionary.com. enlighten (v.) Look up enlighten at Dictionary.com late 14c., “to remove the dimness or blindness”...
“I Have A Quick Question………”

“I Have A Quick Question………”

Well there you have it. The New Moon this morning at 0 deg Sagittarius was conjunct my Mercury exactly and I get the urge to blog for the first time in a long time. Mercury being the planet of communication and teaching. And in Sagittarius which makes it all about truth! And in my eleventh house of groups and causes. I expect this urge to grow even more as Saturn enters my eleventh house also on November 30 and then again when the Lord of Karma leaves Scorpio, where he has been teaching us many many inner lessons since October 2012, and enters Sagittarius on December 23. Also conjoining my Mercury! So what, am I drawn to write? Well it’s not exactly astrology per se. It’s about my work as an astrologer. It’s those quick questions. The ones that say ‘can you explain what so and so in my chart means’ or ‘I am having a hard time, can you take a quick look’ (they are the hardest!) They come by private message on Facebook and Twitter mainly. Occasionally by email. And even by Google Hangout messages. After all this time working online I still feel a constriction in my throat when these messages arrive. The old fears of saying no. I have a nice reply prepared now and do use it. But I STILL feel bad as I hit send. Will they hate me? Will they never come back for a reading? All false fears of course. But here’s why I choose to answer none of these questions. If I answer one person I feel I have to answer other...
