Uncharted Waters 💕

By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders

An ocean tumbles through dreams of you. In depths unknown, I float above.

Oh, how I long to dive beneath your surface, yet I am timid in matters of love.

If brave, I’d have shown you the whole of my gushing heart, no less than tides of bliss.

Searching your eyes, I want for treasures lost on the ocean’s floor.

The sun, like a gold coin, drops, splashing this face of regret.

I blush in secret thoughts of you and turn away from the endless shore.

Full Moon Eclipse in Leo; Feb. 10, 2017 @7:34 PM EST❂♌

It’s showtime, as 2017’s first Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs in majestic Leo, the sign of the artist, player and lover. The Moon’s magical beams are about culminations, revelations and manifestations. This is a cosmic kick to push us off the cliff, and into action towards our chosen path.

This eclipse is the first in a two-year series to hit the Leo-Aquarius axis; the Personal vs. the Universal. Sun King Leo is about finding the source of that which makes us special…one-of-a-kind. This lunation asks, How will the uniqueness that is You make a difference in the world?

“You’re correct in believing that you shouldn’t let anyone dim your candle just because they’re uncomfortable with your brightness, but self-confidence can quickly turn to arrogance if you disregard the feelings of those closest to you.” -Rick Levine

Venus in Aries + Venus Retrograde ❤♀♈

It’s going to be an interesting ride as Venus, our planet of love and beauty, moves into daredevil Aries on February 3, 2017 for an interrupted, but longer-than-usual stay. For lovers, old and new, this is great news as Venus in Aries seeks to light our divine spark by revving up the lust factor through steamy flirtations and hot pursuits…

Venus in Aries is known as the reckless restless romantic, so flames tend to fizzle out as fast as they sizzle, especially if there isn’t a level of intensity and mystery involved. Competition and power struggles could also erupt under these explosive skies. Aries has a “me, me, me” vibe that can never really get enough attention.

“2016’s Fire Monkey was true to form with all his sneaky unpredictability and chaotic ways. Friday, the calendar turns over as we welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster—a flamboyant energy that is also a helluva lot more predictable. Given the patriarchal uprising that is afoot, some might not love hearing news that the Cock will reign supreme in 2017; however, although the Rooster might strut his stuff, he’s pretty darn protective of the hens in his coop. And his crows, which come like clockwork every morning, are meant to wake people up. Metaphorically speaking, we are hoping this means there will be more #WokeFolks on the planet in a very short time.” -Astrotwins

It’s a Good Time to:

  • Show appreciation to your friends and colleagues
  • Develop a privacy barrier in your virtual life
  • Break out of your mental boxes
  • Seek those that are an inspired match
  • Embrace the glorious, outrageous, unique you
  • Meditate for world peace

This phase of the Moon occurs at 8 degrees of Aquarius, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 4 to 12 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.

New Moons are an optimal time for planning and seeding your intentions before they bust through the soil and reach for the growing lunar light. But first, take a moment to thank yourself for all your strength and progress you’ve made since the Capricorn New Moon. XX

Full Moon in Cancer; Jan. 12th, 2017 ♋

On Thursday morning at 6:34 AM EST, the first Full Moon of 2017 occurs when the sensitive Cancer Moon opposes the cool Capricorn Sun. Bringing oceanic levels of emotions, Cancer energy urges us to feel all the feels and acknowledge our deep emotional needs.

“In the wash of emotions that will rise in this interval, take care to discern which belong to you (i.e., emerging from lived experiences), and which are the emotions of your parents and extended family, your partner, or the social/collective emotional field. The more you’re able to release emotional habits and patterns that do not nourish and sustain you, the better you’ll be able to progress with fluidity and wholeness.” -Moon Quartz

This Full Moon in Cancer also falls under a tricky formation called a Grand Cardinal Cross. A cross occurs when two sets of planets are in opposition; forming a perfect square in the heavens like a four-way tug of war. This rare alignment involves Uranus in Aries, Moon in Cancer, Jupiter in Libra, and Sun with Pluto in Capricorn.

Venus in Pisces; Jan. 3 – Feb. 3, 2017 💙♀♓

An escape into beauty and fantasy arrives today, as Venus enters the mystical realm of Pisces. Our approach to love is impacted by whatever sign Venus happens to be in, and romance doesn’t get much more enchanting than when Venus is in the sensitive Water sign of Pisces.

Empathy, tolerance and understanding are among the highest expressions of Piscean/Neptunian energy. The most sublime creative potential is available to us during the next four weeks. The ecstasy of self-expression through poetry, photography, or other form of art is enhanced.

“This fantasy-fueled phase will be doubly strong since Venus’ co-pilot Mars is also in Pisces until January 28. Early Valentine’s Day anyone? Cupid could wing in on an earlier flight in 2017—and January is the month to surrender to his charms and get swept away.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Pisces allows us to experience the free-flowing nature of romance with less hesitation or expectation. This is the placement where we yearn for a deep soul mate connection. We may long for whatever we value in the depths of our being, whether that is forbidden love, forgiveness or compassion. However, under these dreamy stars we might lower our defenses a little too much…or too soon.

With retrograde Mercury conjunct the New Moon, this marks a time where we can be making adjustments in our career goals and personal accomplishments; perhaps taking a look at how we use our power in the world and what may be inhibiting our success potentials.

Intuition is heightened with the lunation’s sextile to Mars and Neptune in Pisces, but the details of our plans now may be hidden, overlooked, or unclear.

“This new moon wants us to challenge ourselves. That’s what keeps the mission interesting, right? And it’s not just about winning the shiny gold star here, either. With alchemical Pluto and Mercury retrograde also in Capricorn, we need to set soul goals—ones that satisfy our deepest desires while bringing material rewards. Radical Uranus snaps out of a five-month retrograde the very same day, encouraging us to dream outside of the box.” -Astrotwins
