FULL MOON in PISCES – September 19, 2013

FULL MOON in PISCES – September 19, 2013

Pisces brings the energy of the dreamer, the mystic, the selfless server. In its shadow form it’s associated with illusion, delusion and martyrdom. The opportunity is at hand to express Pisces’ positive attributes by taking this day to tune in to our higher capacities. Being in nature and taking time for reflection and paying attention to those dreams which are calling us can help us align with our nobler selves. Meditating, journaling – just making time to be quiet and unhooked from our usual business – can be very therapeutic – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Being near water or in water – swimming or bathing – relaxing and submerging ourselves can release troubled thoughts and make room to listen for our inner wisdom.

SUN in VIRGO

When the Moon is FULL, it’s exactly opposite the position of the Sun. Virgo represents the rational mind, quite opposite to the dreamy full Moon. Since Virgo is also associated with healing and nursing – it complements the Full Moon by reminding us to take care of ourselves – practically – eating nourishing foods, resting, exercising, etc. Many times during the full Moon – we may notice that we’re out of balance – it can feel like a crisis point. This is very helpful, for when we attend to ourselves mindfully, we make room for our spirits to shine through.

MERCURY in LIBRA – until September 30.

Mercury in Libra can help us appreciate more than one point of view. It’s useful for mediation and conflict resolution. Given the struggles that are going on in so many places – it’s helpful to listen to others we may disagree with. Hear what they have to say- as much as you desire to be heard. Libra also represents the scales of justice. Seeking workable solutions can be stimulated by this energy. Another side of Libra is to sit on the fence, going back and forth without coming to any decisions. This can feed confusion and inertia. On the other hand, it may be an advantage to not make any rash decisions we may regret. You need to feel your way through it.

VENUS in SCORPIO – until October 8.

Venus in Scorpio can deepen your desire to feel more connected within your relationships. During this Full Moon, Venus is located at the same degree as Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn can inhibit your feelings and this conjunction is temporary. Venus moves past this position within a couple of days. At the same time, Venus is in a favorable relationship with Pluto which can bring harmony and also attract others to you, including resources. It’s important to be aware of what you’re paying attention to – appreciate what you have instead of focussing solely on what you may lack.

To summarize - the Astrological energies are complex during this Full Moon. It’s best to focus on being receptive to opportunities to meet people, deepen existing relationships and be open to resources flowing your way! It’s timely to make time for yourself – and relax and allow the Moon’s energies to dissolve your usual resistances. Experience your inner world – with quiet and gratitude. Practice opening to the guidance that can come when you make room for it.

The POWER and VALUE of ASTROLOGY

“The power of the natal chart comes from the richness of information that we can derive from it.” (Jeff Jawer). We all experience easy and difficult cycles in our lives. Astrology helps to clarify the nature of our struggles and cherish our times of joy. What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for each cycle? What strategies can we use to help ourselves and others? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing compassion for ourselves. It helps us know that whatever challenges we face are temporary.

I look forward to hearing from you!

New Moon in Virgo – September 5, 2013 and SPECIAL OFFERINGS until September 30

NEW MOON in VIRGO – September 5, 2013

With the New Moon in Virgo, we’re at the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Virgo is an Earth sign, emphasizing practicality and also mental acuity. A good way to start this cycle is to make lists of what needs to be simplified, organized and accomplished across this coming month. Virgo emphasizes creating and/or refining systems that bring order into our personal and professional lives. It’s a good time to de-clutter, reorganize papers and other materials, and create a clean, clear harmonious environment.

Virgo is also the sign associated with healing. It’s timely to evaluate our current states of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. We will receive tremendous help by noting down ways to energize and improve these states — with specific strategies, for example, to make dietary changes and re-energize exercise plans and spiritual practices. Reading relevant articles, magazines, books — and scanning the internet — will inform us of ways to keep vibrant and healthy. Checking out ‘TED Talks‘ can be very stimulating — encouraging us to live our best lives, regardless of obstacles and challenges.

MERCURY in VIRGO

Mercury in Virgo is associated with mental discernment and communication. It will be in this Sign until September 11 — when it will then move into Libra. This is a very good time to do fact-checking, for example. We can also profitably focus on pulling together relevant information for any current, future, or ongoing projects. It’s also important to monitor our ‘internal conversations’ and consciously shift any worrying or other negative thoughts that arise. I’m suggesting we all do our best to live in the present. This can be a very fruitful ‘antidote’ to sending negative projections into the yet-to-become future.

VENUS in LIBRA until September 12

Have fresh flowers, wonderful music and other ways to positively enhance your living and work environments. These lovely activities make good use of this aspect. Venus — ruler of Libra — emphasizes beauty, balance and harmony. It complements the Virgo energies of Sun, Moon and Mercury to create order out of chaos!

Venus in Libra also emphasizes creating harmony in personal and professional relationships. Libra — depicted by the balancing of the scales of justice — reminds us to openly listen to one another and do our best to really appreciate differing points of view, without being judgemental.

MARS squaring SATURN

This angle of tension can feel like our gears are jammed up. Mars says “go” and Saturn says “wait.” Mars in Leo and Saturn in Scorpio are in ‘fixed signs’. Both hold strong positions that can result in frustration and feeling a lack of progress. Before or while taking any hard-edged positions, remember that this square is very temporary. It will be over by September 15. Timing is very important. This square advises us to wait and deliberate until the way is clear.

URANUS Squaring PLUTO — next exact square on November 1, 2013

Instability and unpredictability are happening in global, national and personal affairs — as tension is again building up between Uranus and Pluto. Uranus brings revolutionary and evolutionary energies forward. Pluto unearths deep and systemic concerns — where foundational weaknesses are revealed and creative solutions must be explored.

During these times of upheaval and change, keep in mind that opportunities for innovative thinking and action are also available. How can you contribute to building sustainable foundations? In your life? In your community? How can we, together, bring forward evolutionary breakthroughs and advance our human outcomes?

Jewish New Year — 5774

Last evening marked the first day of the Jewish New Year. To people of all faiths — Happy New Year to each and every one of you! May this time of beginning bring you healing, growth, peace and joy.

The POWER and VALUE of ASTROLOGY

We all experience easy and difficult cycles in our lives. Astrology helps to clarify the nature of our struggle and to cherish our times of joy. What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for the beginning and ending of each cycle? What strategies can we use to help ourselves and others? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing compassion for ourselves and for knowing “this too shall pass” and WHEN!!

I look forward to hearing from you!
