NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS, REVAMPING THE OLD INTO NEW. 16th Feb, 2018!

NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS!
Conjunct Mercury, sextile Uranus, square Jupiter.

A new moon, conjunct south node is looking back at the past in order to move into the future, but look at it from a new perspective. Perhaps take something of the old with you, but do it differently this time round?
Keep in mind that the nodes of fate/destiny bring in the universe’s way of getting life back on track. Some of this is always out of your control.

You may feel like you are working out what is the new? but so much of the past (people, beliefs, attitude, life in general) is still happening, view the past, what have you learned from all of it, know that you are different, are more than capable of turning all of the old ways of doing and being into a new way of doing and being. It’s may be a cross over feeling.

Mercury is involved so a lot of talking, thinking, ideas, insight, information, correspondence, news will play its part. Watch out for Jupiter’s optimistic ways and beliefs, “that it will all be alright”, as it may all be too good to be true and be overly exaggerated. You need to get the full story or picture before rushing in with a big Yes!

Uranus rules Aquarius, it brings in the zing, it’s in an easy aspect so not too much of zing or unexpected should happen, Jupiter’s influence is the one to watch out for, don’t sign up for too much, go with what you can handle.

New Moon’s are the new path ahead, being in Aquarius, it’s trying the new way, be open to change, change it up a little, be innovative. Aquarius/Uranus likes to do it their own way, not to happy playing by the rules, which means it may not be a smooth ride.

Mars and Neptune are lurking in the background building up on the 17th, action is faced with some uncertainty, confusion, delusion, denial even. It’s often the little undercurrents that mess you up.

Venus and Saturn are also lurking in the background building up a few hours after eclipse, get grounded into your heart or what you know to be true. Just in case it’s a bit rocky. Steady, slow is the best way.

Prepare for the new (might still be a bit of old in the new) don’t rush in, feel your way first. A few more bits need to come in.

Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you.

You know when these two connect things happen, Jupiter and Pluto are meeting up today for the first of three in 2018. The good is that it’s a sextile a harmonious aspect.
This brings in a chance or opportunity for growth, to move on. Great transformation can happen, go with the flow, go with the changes that opportunity brings you. Supports you in moving on, makes it easier for you to go and get what you want.

It’s the dynamic duo at work, moves are being made in co-operative ways for success, growth and personal power. It can feel like life/people/situations are pulling you out of yourself or comfort zones to go further into areas you want and long to go. Be pulled out of your old life and ways, go willingly, don’t kick and scream. Evolving up is the name of the game, have faith, be ambitious. You’ve got that plan, gaol, let this combo help you out during 2018, as they will shine the way for you.

Keep in mind, Jupiter is in Scorpio, plowing to the depth of  some unconsciousness within and bringing it to consciousness, this may cause some chaos, intense emotions, fear even, but the good of this is for the more to come to you. You can certainly feel the challenge/struggle of the new calling you and some emotions will be raw, Pluto/Scorpio brings all of that stuff out, and when dealt with, turn it into an empowered you. That’s the gold!

Water and earth time to build, this sextile will help you along, Scorpio and Capricorn, keep it all real and authentic, that’s the only way to go.

Go check out your birth chart and see where all of this is happening for you.

SUN conjunct PLUTO!

Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.

VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.

Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.

Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.

Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.

 

VENUS conjunct SUN, 8-9th Jan, 2018!

 

Grace-Kelly
Venus and Sun meet up again, last time was, March 24-25th 2017 in Aries, Venus was Rx. What was started back then comes to a culmination point, being in Aries you may have started a new phase or beginning of, love, self love, money, relationship, self-esteem and values plus Sun, identity, vitality and purpose. You found faith, strength and courage in Aries.

Now in Capricorn, it’s manifesting or has been, is forming a structure, it’s becoming solid for you, Capricorn can and may bring limits, rules and work to all of these things. It can also bring in stability and longevity to Venus and Sun themes.

They do meet up again 27th Oct, 2018 when Venus is Rx in Scorpio, another layer is added and more to come.

MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for more.

Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.

Sun, Venus quincunx North Node, 5th Jan, 2018!

 

8fadabc797121910036ae37b43333949

SUN,VENUS in Capricorn quincunx North Node in Leo, that’s not easy, adjustments need to be made in areas of love, relationship, money or values, your identity maybe, how you express it. You may have hit a bit of a crisis point, as to where to go now, the path forward.

Sun/Venus in Capricorn, perhaps you need to take it seriously, show some affection, not be aloof or too cool, make that commitment or not……in or out.
Find the heart and value. Warm it all up a bit. The future is the path with heart. Too feel confidant. The two points need to find balance. Look at it an try to understand what you are seeing.
