Full Moon in Gemini December 13th, 2016

Hope everyone is having a good day on this Full Moon in Gemini! I am really busy with work and in the thick of my Saturn return having my own troubles so I haven't had very much time for one of my true passions, astrology. Wrote a bit about this moon on my lunchbreak, hope you enjoy 💖

~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~

This Gemini Full Moon is bringing up and illuminating polarity. You may:

-Pulled this way and that
-Experience an information overload
-Be shown how we are communicating and where we are not communicating to our best ability.

While in the opposite sign Sun/Saturn in Sagittarus is weighing on all of us to:
-Find our personal truth
-Follow through on vision
-Be in Integrity
-Being Natural
-Be Honest

This is a Full Moon be authentic. Embrace your yin and yang. Polarity is in place for a reason and it is in place to show us that there are two sides to every coin and both are right.

Chiron in Pisces squares both the Full Moon and the Sun/Saturn triggering our insecurities of the lack of unity we encounter when taking on the apparent "solo" mission here on earth. We are never alone. 8 billion people are here with you all on their own journeys that are interconnected by hidden webs. We have to learn work together for the greater good of the all.

We can heal the wounds that hold us back from acheiving our highest aspirations by standing in the mirror, in the midst of all the duality and distraction and seeing the true self behind any masks or superficial faces we put on to meet the world. Are you ready to be yourself? Raw and true.

Jupiter moving through Libra this year is highlighting the need for fairness, equality and growing through experiencing the other. The world needs more love, balance, and beauty. We have to learn to expand and grow together and it won't be easy but it is definetly worth it. This is a year of meeting the other halfway and with intentions to expand beyond what can be done alone.

At the same time Uranus in Aries opposite Jupiter. Uranus calls for awakening to our personal freedom at the same time as expanding through partnership. Uranus is also trine the Sun/Saturn in Sagittarus. While these energies of Saturn and Uranus normally clash (form and structure vs. non conformity and rebellion against stagnant structures), this is not the case with them being in trine. They are harmoniously working together to bring us back into our natural state. Free within form. Authentic. Real. Born creators of our own destiny and manifestors of a new paradigm!

Lunar Eclipse in Pisces

Lunar Eclipse in Pisces

 

This Lunar Eclipse is in Pisces conjunct Chiron square Mars in Sagittarius square to the Sun in Virgo. Everything is sensitized, acutely felt with this Moon. With the square to Mars, it is especially the case. It is a touchy time for all, so use compassion this weekend. Realize that everyone is being triggered by universal irritations. It is safe to say that all of us are fairly pissed off that we are not unconditionally loved and adored, or accepted for who we are. It is a real core wound for all of us down here in Earth school. We feel there is always a more perfected state that have we have not attained. We have more work to do with the Sun in Virgo. We are not virgins and we all have shadows.

~*~*~*~*~

Another aspect occurring at the time of this eclipse is Venus in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries. This energy can manifest in two ways. One much more in alignment and balance than the other.

“You can't take my freedom!!!” Braveheart style. Defenses up and ready to launch at the slightest restriction (#gypsyvibes lol)

or

You realize that you are individuating and that the other people in your life are too and its OK! We will grow together side by side. Each in possession of a unique purpose that complements the other. Freedom is a given once you respect that. 

Libra is an air sign and it is about exchanging mental energy.  Love takes communication, compromise and cooperation. It is the theme of the time. We have the other there to bounce ideas off of, to learn from and to help shake us up with new information. Venus in Libra is all about attracting the proper mirror to reflect the lesson that your soul is seeking. Uranus is waking up our need to be independent and at the same time we have Venus calling for interdependence (not co-dependency!!!)  Make yourself someone that can be depended on. Practice these things by yourself first, then work on incorporating into the dance with other people once you get the hang of it.

Venus in Libra is also making a sextile to Mars in Sagittarius. Being a gypsy and all, I travel a lot by myself. While it is necessary at times for soul searching and what not but it is always such a bummer to see or experience something so amazing that you wish there was someone to share the moment with. This is a quest that you will want to have a trail mate. There is no one to show and tell if you charge off on this journey alone! So in the spirit of learning how to cooperate and socialize go find a good friend to mission with and get going.

~*~*~*~*~

Uranus is trine or in harmony with Mars in Sagittarius , we want the freedom to be able to quest, to explore and not be held back. We must allow others the space for individuating to happen. Respecting others awakenings, no matter how outlandish and eccentric their vibes get is key to making this opposition one that is complementary and not conflict causing. 

The fight for freedom and individuation is raging right now on a small scale and much grander scale Uranus is waking us all up so that we can become the warriors that we need to be in a world and society that would keep us forever at odds with one another and under an umbrella of oppression.  Everyone deserves the opportunity to be a free self. To make exciting new choices and take paths that no one has ever taken.

It is obvious that isn't the current reality. The other is demonized. Being different in this large herd makes you a target. The foreign is made the enemy. A terrorist. This is simply not the case for a vast majority of beautiful earthlings. There are amazing people all over the globe and just because they are different than you does not mean they are a threat. With Saturn in Sag there can be some heaviness around the foreign, a fear. We need to acknowledge that no matter how foreign another culture or person is to us, they are our brothers and sisters too. The more of us that stand together despite our differences the better. This is the only way old paradigms will be overthrown. The true rebellion is bringing so many unique spirits together and blowing their minds with how well we all cooperate. You can see it happening in the underground news right now with the Black Lives Matter movement joining the Sacred Stone Camp in the fight against those that have no respect for life.

We each have revolutions occurring internally, within us we can feel something stirring. To alter your entire programming and take the leap into an individuated state takes an extreme amount of trust in self. Aries is a sign, that even if they don't know what is ahead of them they impatiently charge forward and take action. Believe in yourself and make the jump. You are needed. Use that Aries energy of the warrior to awaken others from compliance and passivity. Bring that Venus love vibe to the table as well. Balance.

~*~*~*~*~

I wrote quite a bit about Jupiter in Libra in my New moon report, it isn't aspected yet the energy has shifted noticeably.  Connections are blossoming. Things are picking up and life is getting way more social. Go have fun. Meet people. Keep growing more and more. Enjoy the last week of Mercury retrograde! Crazyyyyy times.

Vibes Alive! 

New Moon Eclipse in Virgo

Well it is pouring rain here in Seattle so a video in the garden is no good, I will at least type this baby up before heading into town for more work!!! I have been working all day and all night and apologize for my lapse in videos . Being a professional gypsy ain't easy folks. With my schedule askew, I humbly offer this little write up on the next couple weeks!

The Solar Eclipse and New Moon at 9º of Virgo was yesterday on the 1st and was conjunct the North Node of the Moon at 12º Right in between the full moon lunar eclipse of the last month on August 18th in Aquarius and the full moon lunar eclipse in Pisces coming up on September 16th . This new moon brings the earth element. We have had our "Awakening" with that electric moon a couple weeks back, now another portal opens for us to journey. It is on the north node of the moon which means this is a big key in activating the paths we do choose for ourselves as servants and stewards of this reality and it is time to pay close attention. 

At the time of this New Moon, Mercury and Jupiter were exactly conjunct in the last degrees of Virgo and loosely conjunct Venus which already moved into Libra on Monday the 29th.Virgo is the end of summer and a time of concentrated effort of harvesting whatever metaphorical crop you have been tending to. Whether you are harvesting veggies or making big business moves, separating the rotten fruit from the good fruit is the task. Narrow your focus and get practical on how you will expand your service to the world. 

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo

Mercury went retrograde on August 30th and will remain so until Sept 21st. The last time Mercury was retrograde in Taurus, this time it is in it's home sign of Virgo. The difference between the earth signs? One is fixed of course and the other is mutable. With one it is time to establish itself, ground and build up resources with the other it is time for flexibility and adaptation. The fields need clearing, there is a metamorphosis that sweeps across the land. Springs retrograde was about slowing down and rooting down to match the rhythms of the earth as you planted and charged up for the summer. This retrograde has more to do with a emptying of cluttered thought and a focusing of our mental energies on the grand plan and fine tuning it to suit your needs(you do have one,don't you?). This Mercury retrograde is about narrowing down your focus so that when you are making these plans and setting up yourself up for this next cycle of time that you don't miss any of the super important details rushing around. 

The final Saturn square Neptune is happening in the midst of these eclipses on the 10th. This solar eclipse and new moon pre activates the exact conjunction and enters a T-square with the two. and re-activates the tension that has been building all year as these planets have faced off. As always, the New Moon means it is once again time to set an intention for the month ahead. With this moon on a Solar Eclipse, you are also setting yourself up for the next 6 months ahead until the eclipses of the spring occur. In Virgo the test is to remain pure amidst all the chaos and dramas of life. Pure mind (well...ya know not too pure hehe...no biblical “virgins” here), body and spirit is what we are all striving for. Stay focused, get a healthy routine dialed in and use healthy (not hateful) discrimination to keep life crisis free! We have outdated realities dissolving, beliefs getting thrown left and right, and spirituality and new paradigms moving in to oppose the dogmatic and patriarchal religions that have dominated the scene for centuries. Shit's crazyyyyy with several y's. Take it easy and stay focused on living the pure life. Toss out beliefs that aren't personally helpful and smash the rose colored glasses under boot at the same time and you'll make it through this tense transit.

Venus and Jupiter in Libra

Venus in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn on September 11th. There is no security in the old way of doing partnership. Being passive is not going to bring about these deep changes in the way that relationships are conducted, how we treat each other, the roles we play and how to have a non superficial and dynamic love with another person. Venus in Libra is what meets the eye, what is apparent on the surface is lovely and beautiful. It is joyful and harmonious. It is the Queen of Heaven, shining in the eyes of her adorers. But not all is beautiful in this world. We have a dysfunctional and distorted way of relating in our society. Be it romantic, business, or otherwise. The challenge with this square is to be authentic and forge deeper connections than society has ever allowed.

Lucky for everyone, this is going to be a far more social year than the last and we will all have ample opportunities to come together. Jupiter moves into Libra on September 9th, ending its year long passage through the sign of Virgo. With Jupiter in Libra an abundance of mirrors will present themselves to you. All will reflect back to you what needs to be balanced out in your life. Where have you been taking extremes and how can you bring more joy and harmony into your interactions with other people by finding a midpoint of neutrality. The expansive planet will help us to grow with every encounter and new connection. This is a year to team up, and through cooperative efforts more can be achieved in all avenues of life.

Meeting the other isn't always harmonious. Libra can be a foe or friend. If you have a fight, grow from the battle. Find ways to learn from the moments where the equilibrium is upset and negotiations go sour. Could you have communicated better? Likely. Use any conflicts that come up this year as an opportunity to expand your diplomatic tool box. Every time you trifle you are gonna learn something. Try to see the middle way, wiggle around compromise. Use your big words! 

If you have hear any Jupiter tales you will know, he is a god of many rendezvous and one that loves to push the limit of free expression (especially of a sexual nature). This is a good time to open up! Literally. Allow connections to happen and be ready to stretch the limits in the year ahead! Even if you have to be slightly rachet. Mars is now charging along in Sagittarius, a Jupiter ruled sign and is all about the leash being taken off so exploring can happen. Be adventerous :wink wink: 

And With most of the planets now out of the more personal signs, time to get out there and butterfly it up. Have fun and keep your vibes alive!

Reflections on Aquarius, Awakening and Community

Reflections on Aquarius, Awakening and Community

I have recently conducted an experiment in my local community. August 18th, 2016 was the Full Moon in Aquarius at 25 degrees. The test: Can creative individuals (Leo) step into their roles as co-creative members of a larger community and hold a container for the tribe (Aquarius) to flourish via our cooperative efforts.

Intention setting

14067534_152230708549660_3761996145523153025_n.jpg

It is very important to set intentions for what it is you are manifesting. It is also important for everyone to get on the same wavelength and vibration. We started off by visually acknowledging each individual in the circle with direct eye contact and conspiratory nods. Wake up, we are all in this together. Every person in your immediate circle is key during this shift from unconsciousness (Ending of the age of Pisces) and into Awakening (Begining the age of Aquarius). There is a connection that flows through all of us and we are in the process of waking up to what it means to be aware of the greater tribe, to be able to deal with transpersonal energies and collective consciousness. Once you individuate and come on board there is the next step of integrating your art into the community, making friends and broading the hoop to include more. We didn't quite hold hands, we did however we breathed deeply and OM three times. Clicked our heels and party was started!

Saturn stuff: Accountability Time, Commitments, Leadership, Delegation.

No matter who you are, if you are on Earth, you are in time and within the boundaries of it (Saturn). You could see Saturn/Mars/Antares conjunct in the sky. We all have a limit to how far we can soar before being burnt out. This is where true leadership and delegation come into play. This is where you need to create boundaries so that you are not over commiting and wearing yourself down. This is where new leaders are created by pausing, accessing the amount of fire you are able to sustain and passing the torch if it is necessary. And it is totally necessary. Allow others to come into the roles they are destined for. 

Follow a schedule. Even artists like myself need to create deadlines in order to get pieces finished for shows or clients. Respect other peoples schedules and the effort they are putting forth to be there. Time is a hard one for hippies, but showing up for those in the tribe that show up for you needs to be a thing. Creating a schedule is not a bad thing, it is a respectful necessity when cooperating on grander scales with others. 

Commit, but don't over commit. Know yourself and your limits and you will never reach the point of exhaustion or saltiness that lowers your vibration. Tall Sagittarus tales are good and well, but actually standing in your truth and doing what you say you are going to do is what counts. 

And follow the rules. There are bullshit rules in our society, true. However there are rules that we should follow that are universal. Treat your brothers and sisters with respect. Do not hurt each other. Respect the land and nature.

Magicians

And when all of the artists and creators of the land come together in cooperation we get magic. The container is created by the mutual respect that each person is given by putting forth their light. We get true wizardry and all that good imaginative Neptune stuff bubbles forth from our wands. High art is achieved. Beauty is manifested. And we all have a great time doing it. There is a positive side to this Saturn/Neptune square that is in play. Make your dreams real and bring them into form. 

Conclusion

The experiement was a great sucess here in my community, I hope that others get inspired to gather friends and create connections that further us in our awakening to higher vibrations, more conscious co creating and a future where these occurances are common place. Time to find your tribe. Start locally and expand globally. 

As you awaken keep your vibes alive and your eyes open. The sun is rising.
