Tough Times Require Unconditional Love

The next few weeks are going to be tough. And awesome. And Transformational. But not easy.   Either you or someone you know is being deeply affected. Many are in pain of one kind or another. But all will be well. If we learn the lessons we are being called to learn This is what we have coming up and building already. I will mention them all and then just talk about general energies because it’s almost too much to deal with in a blog post. Well not almost. It is! We have a big cluster of energies in Aries: Venus, Mars, Uranus and South Node, congregating around the middle of the sign. First Venus and then Mars will conjoin the nodal axis (our past and our future). Underlying everything we have the last exact conjunction of Uranus/Pluto on Mar 16 at 15 degrees (middle of signs). So Venus will join this square on March 4 followed by Mars on Mar 11. Saturn turns retro on Mar 14 (and is in square to Neptune in Pisces). Mercury moves into Pisces on Mar 12, joins Neptune on Mar 18 and the Sun joins with Chiron in Pisces on Mar 8. And we have Eclipse season which is always heightened. A Solar Eclipse at the very. very last degree of the zodiac on Mar 20 and all this finishes up with a Lunar Eclipse at 14 degrees of Libra on April 4. There is even more to this but are you already going WOW!? This is it lovelies. We have been building to this since 2012. And as a collective, since...

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...

Summer Solstice 2013

As we approach the summer solstice of 2013 I am drawn to remember the solstice of the year 2000.That year the solstice was at 2.48pm GMT on the 21st. A short time after this I woke up in labor with my second child. I had a magical (yes really) labor. I labored all day at home with only a TENS machine, a couple of puffs of Gas and Air and a birthing pool for pain relief. I walked around our English garden stopping to lean on my husband every now and then when I had a contraction. I ate some homemade soup when I felt a little peckish. It was truly magical. Alice Victoria was born in the birthing pool at 5.05pm. The birds were singing outside the window and I could hear the kids playing next door. Her second name is Victoria after my Grandfather, Victor, whose birthday was also June 21st. He died many years before but it seemed to be fitting that she carries his name. Why do I tell you this on the eve of this solstice? I want to talk about how I felt that day. I was not an ideal candidate for a home birth, apparently. I was 40. My first pregnancy had ended in induction, an epidural, forceps and a baby that had to be given oxygen before I could hold her. This time I was determined to have no intervention. I learned all I could about the birth process. First time round I had relied upon the medical profession to teach me this. They didn’t. I withheld small niggles from my...

An Astrological Pivot Week

This week, and most particularly today and tomorrow, is a pivot week according to astrologer Anne Ortelee. I could go into all the astrology but as my aim is to write for you, not to give an astrology lesson or write for other astrologers I will only mention the highlights and if you want to know all the astrology look at Anne’s post. Instead I will only talk about how this week should affect you and how you will feel. Firstly, what does a pivot week mean? It means a profound or paradigm shift. This week is a shift from thinking to feeling. A ‘getting out of our head time’ and really moving into a more feminine time. A very watery time of flow and emotion. The Sun and Jupiter join together today to begin a whole new year of creativity and then they both move into the sign of Cancer. The Sun tomorrow and Jupiter late on the 25th – I am always referencing mountain time. Cancer is THE sign of feeling, of nurturing, of the mother and from the 25th we will have four planets in this sign until Venus moves into Leo on the 28th. The Sun, Mercury (which is going retrograde on the 26th) will be there for quite some time. Too much astrology? I apologize. This just means a real period of moving into our feelings. I am seeing it already. There was a thread on a friends facebook profile yesterday talking about how their emotions are all over the place. There were many comments agreeing. It’s also very apt that I am starting...
