Astro bits 9-10th Oct, 2017!

Capture

Mercury/Sun square to Pluto, as you all know square are intense aspects
in astrology. So….it may have an intense vibe to the days.

Mercury and Pluto may be somewhat of a mindf**k, you may not be able to let go of something running around in your head. You can have a very probing mind, as you want to go deep. You may want something sorted, the truth. Great for detective work, doing any psychological analyzing. Words may come out of your mouth and once out they may change or transform a situation.

Sun meets up with Pluto too, ego or identity may go through some kind of transformation here. Sun shines the light on some deeper issue/conflict that’s lurking under the surface.

Anything Pluto is always about breaking something down, to be built up again, the healing power of transformation. Usually through some intensity.
Watch the Pluto part which brings in the power plays, control issues or some kind of struggle.

Moon will be in Gemini during this phase, your mind will be quick, curious and over active.

There’s some intensity in the air, things are changing, perhaps getting clearer perhaps not. You feel like you need to find a way or to know the way, forward. . But you can’t Saturn wants you to pace yourself, look at what’s in front of you. If things feel blocked, they will eventually get unblocked your job now is patience, perseverance.

Mars opposite Neptune – 23-26th, a level of uncertainty in areas of faith, idealism, trust and action can come into play. Neptune brings in the illusion or delusion part, its foggy.
You don’t know yet, which way it goes.

Mercury square Saturn, then opposes Chiron – 25-28th, brings in information, conversations that may bring up some pain, hits the sore spot, Saturn narrow things down, delays, limits, restricts here. Work with the facts, keep calm and keep it real, have a methodical mind during this transit. Also don’t jump ahead of yourself. Watch the negative self talk or talk, mastering your thoughts and mind.

Jupiter quincunx Chiron – 19-27th, making adjustments, maybe having to let go of something or someone. This may also have been an ideal, belief, attitude or even something of truth.
It’s a climb to the mountain top, and to rise you have to let go and change.
Spirit transcends.

Moon in Sagittarius, you are seeking the truth, a way forward, a goal to aim for now.

 

Sun in Libra, 23 Sept, 2017!

 

SUN enters LIBRA

SUN in Libra, into the cardinal air. It’s the half way mark in the zodiac wheel and year, you may be feeling the need and desire to connect more, interact, you are stepping into the external world, coming out of the personal zone and time.

Libra = seeking to find, peace and harmony, getting back to center.

Keep in mind Venus, Mars and Mercury are still in Virgo, perhaps, a bit more work still has to be done. Some things may still need to be wrapped up, cleared away.

New Moon in Virgo, 20th Sept, 2017!

New Moon in Virgo, 20th @3:30 pm (aest)

  • Sun/Moon opposite Chiron, square to Saturn. Mercury ruler of Virgo, conjunct Mars, opposite Neptune.

This is a very Virgo time, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Venus(enters a few hours before the new moon) all in the mutable, earth sign of Virgo.

It’s time to find the thread again, that was lost.

Here you are dealing with life, looking at life through the eyes of a Virgo lens. And you may be struggling with what you see. It might even be a little bit messy, confusing. The Neptune Full Moon, slipped things into the ethers, a lot dissolved, detached, left you with a lost feeling, something left from within you making you feel not so sure now. Neptune might want to keep the chaos alive, keep it stuffed in the cupboards, under the bed, but no, that is not the Virgo way. To sort is the way, come back to earth, to pick up the pieces. Virgo works her magic to help you get clarity, to get clear, by taking the practical, approach. It’s time to get in amongst the mess whether it be in your head, house, relationships, health, daily habits, work, kitchen cupboards. Time to work, look, get organized, make a list, get a plan, and do.

Virgo is here to help you out, she is asking you to clean it all up, she will be logical, practical and very discerning. What to keep and what to throw. What is working or useful to me and most of all to others, as Virgo is about service too. You can only work with what you know, what is true and real and what you have, keep that in mind. Somethings will have to go but not everything.
You would like to make life, work better. You feel the need to clean, remove, sort out the muddle that’s been around you or in your head.

Virgo time is a good time for healing, head, body and soul, take some time out for this.

New Moon hits up with Saturn/Chiron, which brings in another set of challenges for you. Chiron is the sensitive spot, vulnerable, you feel like parts or bits are missing, still floating out there in space, (I think Neptune has taken it out to sea), you may feel like you are not enough, not whole. Saturn sets you to working it out, because you have to, you just have to do the work!, you cannot walk away, from bits yes, but not the lot. That would be unfinished business. Saturn…. not a fan of that!

Mercury ruler of Virgo, opposite Neptune, this brings in the fog, uncertain, element, you’re just not sure of what is really going on here, you stand scratching your head, so communication may be unclear, misunderstanding can happen. Let the universe speak to you, listen. At some point be quiet and listen. Let her pulse through you. Virgo and Pisces is the axis of dream, magic and reality bringing it into physical form. Mars is still conjunct Mercury, taking action may not be clear or easy, bit to fogging perhaps, thanks to Neptune opposite.

If you are feeling like me at the moment and you just do not know what to do, about certain things, just wait, hold off, clean up the bits that you know need to be looked at, sort, sift, release. You will start to feel the new energy of the new moon filter through a few days after, that’s the go point, you are using this Virgo time to get clear, really clear on what you want and what you are doing, it’s been a hazy, daze time between moons, but hopefully you have been listening to the discerning voice within.

Mercury re-enters Virgo, Moon in Taurus, 10th Sept, 2017!

 

mercury in virgo

MERCURY re-enters VIRGO, you now got the info, gone over many things, but mostly it was and probably still is a brain drain and brain F**k!
Mercury in Virgo works well here, watch your stress levels, don’t be in your head too much as you will get brain burn out, become highly strung :/.
Mercury joins Sun, Mars and Mars/Mercury will meet up again so watch out for that one again!

MERCURY re-enters VIRGO, earth, grounded, focuses on the details, your mind or thoughts become sharper, more efficient, you will want to analyze, be discerning with information and put it all in order. Moving forward is the goal, do the weeding out, take with you want you only really want.
Your everyday may become more practical, logical, get organized, more orderly work place or get your everyday down in a way that you can function perfectly, be methodical, have a to do list, plan, write things down and do.
Be precise/clear in your communications with others.

Moon in Taurus, earth, eat, sleep, drink, pamper yourself, roll around in the bed, feel and be in your body! And if you can’t do that focus on money, security, comfort and going for a walk in a beautiful garden instead.

SUN opposite NEPTUNE, MARS, MERCURY, hit the eclipse spot. MOON in Aquarius.
Sun and Neptune meet up (this will be around for the next few days, exact around the full moon in Pisces, on the 6th), things can start to get foggy, you feel a little mellow, this is a great aspect to go with the flow, use your imagination, dream, write, you can be more sensitive and intuitive.
Be as clear as you can with your words and actions, this can lead to misunderstanding, delusions, deception. As you can often feel as if you do not know what is real and true with this one. I always find Neptune a tricky one.
Mars and Mercury hit the eclipses spot, some energy is being dumped on that one again, if you felt it last go round, your likely be feeling it again with some more input/change to that spot.
Moon in Aquarius, you might want to detach from your emotions, unplug, become more of a thinker, find solutions to your problems this way.

Like always check out your birth chart to see how this is working in your life.

Astro bits, Mercury Rx, re-enters Leo, 31st, Aug, 2017!

MOON @29 degrees Sag, moves into Capricorn, well in about 20 mins. out of the fire into earth, ground down, get practical and real.
Mercury re-enter Leo 1st Sep, @1:26:52 am, rethinking a previous opinion or idea, go over the ideas that spark you up and connect with your HEART. This is part of the go for Gold that is with in you.
Reflecting on, going over, creativity, self-expression, romance.
There is something that you need to address, it’s come up again.
Mercury goes direct from September 5th (its shadow ends on September 19th).
But before this, it triggers the Solar eclipse spot 28 degrees, with Mars in Leo September 2-3, pay attention to those days and before this too, as this will be Sparky and significant.
If you know your birth chart, look at it , to see where all this action is happening for you personally.

MOON in Gemini, square Mercury Rx in Virgo, and Neptune in Pisces. Mercury opposite Neptune.

With Moon in Gemini aspect Mercury take the time out to go over your choices, decision you have made or go over what is happening now. Have a new look, slow down to review. That is the Mercury Rx, time to reflect, review. Mercury in Virgo, be discerning, look at the details, be realistic in your approach.

Neptune does make this all a little difficult as it’s a blur, unfocused element. There may be a touch of confusion on how you got here, you have no control, it was out of your grasp, but you thought you had it. Neptune shows you, where you are not seeing clearly, the illusion. Neptune in Pisces, is a bigger picture, you may net see it yet.

Neptune can help for a quiet time to reflect and meditate on all that is happening.

Mercury and many planets are Rx at the moment, so not a lot of really going forward, well, you might feel like you are not moving forward, now with Mercury Rx you may find that it all slows down, and so should you. Get a grip, find the pace that keeps you in the present moment, don’t get too far ahead of yourself.

If you do need to make any decision, take a good look at it, be sure of what you are doing.
