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...
WAKE UP!!! And Be Willing To Be a Disappointment.

WAKE UP!!! And Be Willing To Be a Disappointment.

WAKE UP!!! And Be Willing To Be a Disappointment. Oh my heavens! We are in the midst of a GREAT AWAKENING. Literally This week is OFF the charts starting with the New Moon at 14 deg Gemini that was on June 4 2016. We are under a Mutable Grand Cross, which ALWAYS brings a big shift and change. Think back to April 2015 and what was happening then. This, however, is a Grand Cross that includes the North and South Nodes of Fate, our past and our future. And this Grand Cross will be affecting our consciousness until the end of the month as Vesta and Mercury join the party in Gemini. The Nodes are where we are coming from and where we are going. Our Karmic potential. In the year of purification we are now being asked to speak our truth in a BIG way. So much is not working any more with the patriarchal structures of our lives (this can mean solid structures or ‘constructs’ that have been drilled into our consciousness for all our lives. And we are being asked to do this from a place of love. This is a massive opportunity to bring unconditional love into the world through your voice. And to create a path to your big vision. Creativity is so so high right now. Especially creativity that comes through you not from you. We are realizing more and more and more that we are in this together. That what we do and speak about affects everyone. This energy is also very polarizing. Everything is shifting and changing at warp speed 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...
After the Annus Horriblis: Getting The Message!

After the Annus Horriblis: Getting The Message!

Wow, wow wow is all I can say. Repeatedly. What a year. I feel a bit like the Queen of England when I say what an annus horriblis (horrible year) it was! I’m English though so I can get away with it. And I am the Queen of my own world. So, you know. Or more like horrible 18 months or two year even! Or even three years for some parts of it! Not all bad of course but, man, that Uranus/Pluto square was tough. And transformational. And bumpy. And shocking in some ways. It’s not completely over yet. Uranus and Pluto will pull apart but then Uranus will turn retrograde at the end of July and by January they will only be a degree apart again. But the effects are fading. It’s time to assimilate all the changes and the lessons. And, as Mercury, the messenger of the Gods, squares Pluto tomorrow, the 7th April, and conjuncts Uranus in Aries the next day before going cazimi (into the heart of the Sun, ie exactly conjunct) with the Sun on Thursday, April 9th. And Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance and good fortune is trining all this and turns direct on Wednesday April 8th when the Moon is in Jupiter ruled Sagittarius! What does all this mean? BIG forward movement. BIG ideas. BIG messages. BIG voice. BIG firey energy. And all of it forming a Grand Trine to my Jupiter and then Sun in Sagittarius in my twelth house. Can I just say yummy and I am ready for this. It’s time to speak. You have been looking at...
