Mercury in Sagittarius, it’s a long stay!

Qs3WdDvffKT74f9yKJ6C_1082130415

Christian Schloe Dream On

Mercury stay in Sag will be a long one, entered on the 6th Nov – 11th Jan, 2018, while there will go Rx, 3rd Dec – 23rd.
Mercury’s in the opposite sign that it rules, Gemini is where Mercury works best, in Sag, the mind gets to stretch further out, has to think bigger, thoughts and logic will be touched with thoughts of hope and inspiration. It gets to weave a bigger picture to the story. Not so much looking at the details or facts, you will want to see the whole thing. So some of the facts may not stick as you are too busy, preaching about the bigger picture you want to paint. Which can be tricky at times, as you may not want to miss out on the details, as during the Rx period will be important. Best to remember this along the way.

Whats enjoyable with Mercury’s time in Sag, is fresh ideas, a new way to look at something, gaining higher knowledge or broadening your perspective on areas of life that have become too narrow. Great time to travel or go to far off places in your mind, broaden your mind with new stories, have something new to marvel at. Use this time to clear out the mind of old long-held beliefs, let something new filter in.

You communication style may turn more cheerful and optimistic, reality might just take a bit of a nose dive, as you believe that you can achieve the visionary view you have of life. You know Sag’s they are the optimistic bunch of the zodiac.

Mercury Rx will happen, you then have to go back over all of the this again and get a closer, slower, look at your faith, beliefs, hopes, attitudes and the new thoughts that have come. Pay attention to what is just too far out there,  being in Sag, facts are flown out, as you are in the mix of wild enthusiasm, filled with inspiration and perhaps some exaggeration of what you thought is possible.

This may turn it around and the reality check pops in, and of course Mercury hits it up with Saturn just before Rx stationary and just after and that is a one big whoop of reality, right there, Boom!! you may have to come back to earth, instead of flying high in your mind. Use Saturn’s rules and limits to let you see how this will really work out for you, this is the framework.
Mercury conjunct Saturn – 26th Nov and then 9th Dec.

Yesterday, you had a grand cross and many other aspects going on. Today you have a fire trine, plus Moon will conjunct Uranus.

Trines are harmonious, easy, aspects, with ease you can achieve, being a fire trine, it’s brings in a lighter more passionate feel, be creative, passionate and action you take will be easier and achieve success. The downside is you can be lazy and content with it all. With the Neptune aspects also in harmonious aspects, you may find that the slow and easy road is best.

Sun in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius, brings in some stability, holds it together.

Moon in Aries trine Sun, emotions can be more in tune with each other, some balance can be achieved.

Moon trine Saturn, emotions and being limited may lift a bit here, Saturn usually contracts, keeps it all in, here you may find some release or pressure is off.

Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries, this can bring in the random, surprise element, might spark it all up more.

Mercury is now Rx, that’s kinda slippery, going Rx opposite Neptune, it’s a blur for a few moments. Gotta get a grip.

You are still in between eclipses, keep that in mind, as that is the anything can happen place. Also it is a rough time and spot.  

 

Full moon in Sagittarius, June 2017!

full-moon-in-sagittarius-summer-solstice

British Vogue June 2012 Olympic Gold issue

This full moon in Sagittarius, sits close to Saturn, Plus Jupiter is going direct. This Moon will have a serious tone to it being next to Saturn. 

Like all Full Moon’s it’s a time of culmination, fulfillment and letting go.

A little bit or a lot of hope for the future, and some despair or disappointed about the past.

Go through the grieving process of things that did not last or come into being. Sometimes you are not ready to give it all up, but you know that the end in near. It can be disappointing when you realize that it is not meant to be. A turning point for change.

Saturn is asking you to be mature, take the responsible approach to your life, Saturn likes you to be realistic in all that you do. And if emotions are involved be emotionally mature.

Honor yourself and all that you have endured over the last few years, as it has not been an easy time.

Saturn in Sag has a limiting effect, it’s been work, real hard work, structure, looking at your beliefs, attitude and what is really your truth. Are you wise enough and mature enough.

Sagittarius is the truth, being honest with yourself, in all areas of your life. You may have or had to give up on something, either within yourself or an external vision or dream. It’s time for letting go, and to start again with a new vision, goal or plan. Look to another, bigger horizon now. You want to be inspired again, to have freedom from the ties that bind. You have the future in front of you, even if it’s scary and unknown, look that way. Sagittarius is the quest for meaning, purpose and truth. And there is always more. Dig deep inside of you and know that this is true. Have a higher perspective, believe that this is not all that there is for you. It’s turning towards something new, to broaden your life and you.

Jupiter is going direct, Jupiter rules Sagittarius, Jupiter is more, it’s expansion, joy and optimism. Sagittarius and Jupiter wisdom, experience and knowledge, Saturn is use it all wisely, come from a conscious place. 

Jupiter is ready to get going, get a move on, more to do, see and be. Out of despair, struggle and disappointment, comes opportunity to grow, to welcome more and to not be afraid. Have faith, trust in yourself, that life really is an adventure and through all of your experience you grow and welcome the future.

Sagittarius and Jupiter is the broader, bigger horizon that is waiting for you to explore.

Pause for a moment, allow a space to open for you to bring more into your life, as the old leaves to make way for the new.

The FUTURE is calling you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New moon in Sagittarius!

“We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon”. Franklin D Roosevelt.

Here you are back at your beliefs,  you have traveled around the zodiac, learnt from others, grown from your travels and experiences. Engaged with many cultures and people, thought you knew it all, you followed the path of your goal and vision.

 Your back here and what do YOU know now!

Pull your arrow back, Sagittarius, close to your heart and use this as your compass to move on again around the zodiac once more.

This new moon, as with all new moon plant the seed of the new into your subconsciousness and wait and watch for it to grow and manifest. 

Sagittarius, our beliefs, our truth, standing up in them and for them.

Aspecting the Sun and Moon, they both square Neptune in Pisces, feeling some confusion, uncertainty, out of sorts, lost or in many cases disbelieve, in which way to go. Sun/ Moon also square off with the South/North node of fate and destiny.

Neptune backed into the South node about a week ago and you may have had to wake up from the dream and realize that you need to let it go, and you can feel confused by this. Or for others the dream become the reality, and you say good-bye to the past and step into the future.

Neptune’s influence will fade in a day or two, usually the best way to work with Neptune is to be dreamy, read, listen to music, paint, play music, nature yourself with being artistic , spiritual.

Sun connects exactly on the 1st of Dec to shine some light and move away from the confusion that you may be feeling.

Bringing in the node of fate and destiny, memories and feeling from the subconscious may surface during the new moon, you may have felt this before when the moon was in Scorpio a few days earlier, something needed to be looked at, which is important for your purpose and journey. Let them go, free yourself.

Whatever has come up for you stop and pay attention to it as it will be linked to your soul’s journey, perhaps you have been overlooking something really important or you have been very focused outside of yourself and it now comes up for you to see, that you cannot move on without it.

Node, destiny and fate, is it meant to be? Is it yours?

The time before the new moon is the Balsamic phrase, ending, death, releasing. I usually feel withdrawn and quiet here something is always calling for release, once a month, we die to be reborn.

So, here is the new moon in Sagittarius, the archer aims, stands firmly on the earth, looks far and wide, looking for the long vision to go forth with.

WHAT NEXT! Ask yourself this, where do I go from here?

Take the time to set down your goals, stick a pin in it. Get a vision board happening, like I said look for the long vision.

What next, what do I want!

If the old dream had to go, or maybe parts still remain, it’s still a question of what now?

Use the qualities of Sag of being, positive, expansive, open, optimistic, philosophical to help you stay on track and finding and following your purpose.

But, most of all, be true to you, another Sag quality, truth, you have it, you know it, use it. What has been coming up for you over the last few weeks and months, is it all in alignment with your higher being and purpose. This is a bit of a truth moon, don’t be or live your life, for or being somebody else, that just won’t work anymore.

What do I now believe to be true for me?

Stay hopeful, have faith, send out your prayer’s, look long and broad.

Let your aim come from truth, wisdom under this New Moon

Blessing and Amen.

Mars direct!

 

stephenson_moonrocket

Mars is now direct after being Rx since April 17th, first in Sag, then in Scorpio.

The planet of action, the action you take, it’s a very outward energy, he likes to do, by being assertive, searching for the new. Mars rules Aries and is cardinal fire, likes to start new things, plus have adventures.

But in Rx phrase he slows down, not so active or assertive, this can be very irritating, annoying, frustrating, can bring up anger and you feel pissed off or even ripped off.

He is going over stuff again, digs up, into your fears, frustration, makes you feel like you are blocked and it’s just difficult to get things going, or even finding the energy and drive to do.

That’s because in Scorpio for the last leg of Rx, was for you to slow down pay attention to the fears, your frustration, your anger, what did your emotions tell you, what did it bring up for you. Being in Scorpio it may have been around, money, intimate relationship, sex, death, deep emotions around fears of being powerless, just facing what is in you, what terrifies you a little or a lot.

Have you got what it takes!

Whatever it has been about for you, look at it, clear it away, work on it. Because Mars is now moving forward and this will unlock, unblock the way, hopefully a new pathway has been cleared for you to go down or follow, it will take courage to go forward with more conviction, as he would’ve dug up the fears/tears and now you have to go ahead, leaving the fears behind. Give him time to pick up speed as he is still in the shadow zone, let him gain some momentum.

Mars and Venus are in a nice little trine exact on the 7th of July, great time to be sociable, be creative, express yourself, attractions can be strong with these two. Can be quite a bit of stimulation when these two meet up. Both are in water signs, so, go with your feelings and flow. Generally it’s a positive time.

Mars moves ahead, action, you feel now as if you can take and make some.

Mars will enter Sag again, on the 3rd of Aug, @4:33:06 am, here you walk your talk.

You have to go out and get what you want, With the warrior’s heart, a fire burning brightly in your belly.

“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold”.  Leo Tolstoy

“Hard times arouse an instinctive desire for authenticity”.  Coco Chanel

Second moon in Sagittarius in a month, opposite Sun in Gemini, conjunct Venus in Cancer, Moon square Chiron, Mercury opposite Saturn, square to Jupiter/NN and Neptune, triggering the grand cross, unstable energy.

Sagittarius questing after the holly grail and often finding disappointment along the way. However, like a true quest er, you gotta keep going. The more you look, the more you find and eventually you will find what your looking for!

Sun in Gemini, air, ideas, curious, moving fast and Moon in Sag, fire, meaning, truth, purpose, are looking at each other. Still working stuff out, what’s important and what’s not, what’s true, what’s not, turning that into some sort of wisdom and understanding, so you can use it go forward. 

Sun in Gemini, two moons in Sag, grand cross being triggered twice in a month, all very destabilizing, everything is up in the air, scattered all over the place. The veils of illusion have been blown away and it’s getting clearer and it’s uncomfortable.

What are you left with? it may have become quite clear to you what that is and what’s it really about, underneath it all is the truth waiting for you to look at. Peeling away the layers, to get to your truth.  

Circumstances change and you see it for what it really is, and it’s not easy because once this happens you have to make adjustments again to fit and realign with where your at now. It may in some cases even feel like you need to start over, with perhaps a new idea or fresh insight looking at it from this point in the here and now. 

Sun and Venus in Cancer, may be what you need after all the air, coming home, finding some nurturing, comfort and care. To warm the heart again, so you can feel inspired to keep questing, forging ahead, to go out and participant in a world you want to be part off.

Full Moon in Sagittarius…

art by Melissa Krauss

 

First full moon in Sag happening @7:15 am (east), 1 degree, conjunct Mars Rx, opposite Sun in Gemini, Venus in Taurus.

For this archer moon, I will hold back on shooting off my arrow until my aim, inner direction and eye are very sure about what, why and where, I am aiming for, instead I will observe, get a new or different perspective, get more info, weigh all things up, look around until I have the inner knowing or instinct before I pull back my arrow and shoot. If you shoot now, you could miss your mark. Things are still in the cauldron brewing for you.

Hang back for a while longer, let Mercury go direct, have the new moon in Gemini on June 4-5. Instead spend some time on going over your beliefs, attitude, spiritual concepts, finding and searching for YOUR TRUTH, Yeah….  your inner truth! This is a Sag moon after all, finding a life of true meaning, what’s really important to you. Venus is shining her light on you in Taurus, ground yourself, keep it simple, find time for some pleasure and peace. Her influence will hopefully balance this out.

Moon is conjunct Mars Rx, the warrior is wounded, needs time to gather himself before he goes back out, to recover and perhaps be more equipped. That’s you knowing more about what it is you want, who you want to be. Don’t be over reactive here.

Use the Gemini/Sag axis to think, get inspiration, learn something new, get a new perspective, but most of all position yourself, for the future action and steps you will take. To do this, you have to know where you are at now, and where you want to go.

Remember you’re still in the Rx phrase to receive, be receptive, re-do, go over, in many areas of your life. As usual there is a lot happening with this Moon. Saturn Rx in Sag, not to far away from Moon/Mars Rx, Mercury is getting ready to station, then go direct, Pluto/Jupiter/Mercury in a mutable trine supporting this, Plus 4 planets Rx.

This is the year of mutable change, adjustments, maneuvering yourself constantly, to get the best position possible for your future plans and goals. With Jupiter and North node in Virgo use this time to clean up, sweep away all the old, internal and external.

First moon in Sag is giving you the opportunity to go deep, with Mars right next door feel the intensity it brings you, be patient, keep on with the quest, follow the fire that burns within and with a humble heart keep moving towards dreams.
