New Moon Solar Eclipse; August 21, 2017 ◉♌

 

“I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” 
― 
Edgar Allan Poe

A spectacular celestial event occurs on August 21st, 2017 at 2:30 pm ET when our most intimate cosmic bodies — Sun, Moon and Earth — click into place creating a Total Solar Eclipse.

This is the second of two consecutive Leo lunations — a magical bonus round to magnetize our heart’s desire. This extraordinary New Moon also occurs near the powerful fixed star Regulus, the Royal Star – the brightest in the Leo constellation.

“At this Leo New Moon, dare to be vulnerable and wear your heart on your sleeve! Why hold back your true feelings about someone you admire? Or pretend you don’t love something that’s not considered “cool” by the self-appointed tastemakers of the world? What’s really cool is to be unapologetically yourself.” -Astrotwins

Mars, our action planet, will be within four tiny degrees of this eclipse, adding a big boost of energy. These heavenly bodies will receive shimmering vibrations from Uranus, the planet of surprise.

Those whose personal planets are activated by the 29th degree of the eclipse will feel its effects on a highly personal level.

Ideas planted during this period will have a lot of fire behind them. Put your unique brand of amazing in all you’re passionate about!

Electric breakthroughs can be made, especially if you are born around February 26th or August 21st. Home and relationship changes are likely if your birthday falls near February 11th or August 7th.

For clues, think back to the eclipse of August 22nd, 1998, when there was a Solar Eclipse in Leo at the same degree. Can you remember anything special that happened that year or in early 1999?

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small

Wishing you Peace, Love & Light. xx

 

 

Sun, Mars & New Moon in Leo ♌

“Be the flame, not the moth.”
― Giacomo Casanova

An energizing New Moon occurs on July 23rd at 4:33 am EDT, when the Sun and Moon unite in the realm of the Sun King. This fierce AF lunation is for growing our personal power. Leo inspires playing, loving, and creating – its influence encourages us show off who we are to the max.

This New Moon’s conjunction with warrior Mars helps us to ignite that inner flame that sometimes gets dimmed by life’s daily grind. As this fortunate new cycle unfolds, we will feel emotionally stronger (after the inner turmoil Cancer season tends to stir up) and more determined to committing to our goals. But, with this much fire in the heavens, we must find healthy outlets to channel these energies before getting impatient, impulsive or aggressive.

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Does your birthday fall between July 23rd-28th? Do you have a natal planet or point in Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at 1 degree, plus or minus four degrees? If so, this is a very powerful time! You have two New Moons in a row, and one of them happens to be the August 21st Solar Eclipse!

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” Bill Keane

Use this brilliant Leo New Moon to set intentions that re-energize your inner muse. What are you passionate about besides Game of Thrones? (✿◠‿◠)

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small.

May all your wishes come true! xx

Happy Earth Day!🌻

Via Cosmic Calendar
“Since this year’s Earth Day falls on a weekend, it is a good time — especially during the physically-active and pragmatic Solar Taurus dispensation of the year — to celebrate the beauty, importance and life-sustaining properties of not only trees, but the entire plant kingdom gracing Planet Earth.
Utilize the Moon’s presence in empathetic Pisces — joining forces with visionary Neptune to enjoy an uplifting, imagination-stirring experience of the landscape in your community. Feel deep inspiration during a soulful walk in the great outdoors. Cooking, baking and gardening can fit in nicely with today’s cosmic energy-field.
Turn a possibly confusion-generating Mercury-Neptune 45-degree link (2:39PM) into a creative adventure in the fine or graphic arts. Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, limericks or haiku. Dance away the moody blues with an engaging partner tonight or listen to your favorite classical symphonies.”

Sun in Aries + Spring Equinox; March 20, 2017 🍃♈

Welcome back, Persephone!

The Sun blazes into fiery Aries on March 20th, marking the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a brand new Astrological year!

Today, Light and Dark exist in sacred balance. After this point, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter until the Summer Solstice on June 21st, when the pattern will reverse.

“And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
And so the blossoms fall, and so my days …”
― Onitsura

As we shift out of the soft, ethereal energy of Pisces, and into the fearless, action realm of Aries, we’re likely to be seeking out things that are new, fun and different.

We now have an excess of Fire energy. At this time, we can become more impulsive, direct and uncomplicated in our needs, but the tendency to be a bit of an asshole short-sighted and selfish is highly possible.

As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries’ main concern is for number one…it’s all about me, myself and I –“Let’s talk about me!” “Remember me?” “Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you about me!”

More Aries Particulars

  • Element is Fire (inspired and instinctual).
  • Quality is Cardinal (instigating).
  • Aries is Masculine (outgoing, penetrating).
  • Ruler is Mars.
  • Phrase is “I am.”
  • Birthstone is diamond, created from intense heat and pressure.
  • Body Association: Face, eyes, and head.
  • Season is Spring.
  • Colors are the red shades; scarlet, fire-engine, ruby.
  • Rules metallic Iron.

It’s time to shake off the same ol’ dull routines and consider the many fresh possibilities before us with the renewed energy of Spring and the bold, bright Aries Sun! Just wait until the New Moon on March 27th to launch!

Happy Astrological New Year, AND, Happy Solar Return, Aries! ♥

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.

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.
