AstroGeek » Lillith in Scorpio- Dark Desires

May 24th, 2016 @ 5:25 am by AstroGeek

in your eyes, morbo by Colectivo movimente CCL

Effective Dates: 5/22-12/2/16

Helios Says:

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.” -Paulo Coehlo

So much for feeling stuck, right? It seems like events started moving again, going from 0 to 60 overnight (Which in terms of car speed, is actually insanely slow, but in cosmic terms not so much), and it couldn’t have come quick enough! The events of the last two months have been grueling, to …

Astrological Insight : As the week beings, Mercury is coming out of station and is starting to gather momentum. Today, Monday, late afternoon, the Moon in freedom loving Sagittarius trines Uranus in bold and fearless Aries. My thoughts are with a Dutch astrologer and friend of mine, whose nephew is committing euthanasia this afternoon on his 36th birthday. Mercury has many roles – an important and often forgotten role – is that of pyschopomp – or one who conducts the souls of the dead to Hades. Mercury still holds the grand earth trine together. This is a strong, practical, earthy combination of planets. There is very little water – an element which relates to the feeling nature and the emotions. Perhaps these need now to be kept at bay. Chiron and Neptune are in Pisces – so while the surface

Jupiter will make its final square with Saturn in Sag and we will once again be asking ourselves (and others) “Is the walk matching the talk?”    If people are full of big ego (Jupiter) talk but their real world doesn’t match their words (Saturn), we will all say, “Busted!”  This could be both in the news and in our personal lives.
Jupiter leaves Virgo on September 9th so we have some time to get our actions and words in sync.   And by the way, we really do want to get this piece figured out.  Because when Jupiter moves into Libra in September if our side of the street is not clean then our relationships are going to be up our ass in way that will hurt.   Just remember Pluto is in Cap and Uranus …

Tracys Astro Salon » Mercury Direct

May 22nd, 2016 @ 7:24 am by Tracys Astro Salon

Mercury Direct
May 22,  9:19am EDT
Mercury will turn direct at 14 Taurus 20.   As always we get down on our knees and kiss the ground that the retrograde is over.
The dates of importance:
April 14th Mercury in shadow (14 Taurus)
April 28, Mercury turns retrograde (23 Taurus)
May 22 Mercury turns direct (14 Taurus)
June 7thMercury leaves shadow (23 Taurus)
We have been thinking about practical solutions since April 14th.   We have been pondering other simple choices we can make that will create improvements for longterm goals.  We were thrilled, if we can use that word, that the Mercury in Taurus retrograde took place so soon after we launched our Treasure Maps.  Our maps were our goals for the year.  Goals are important but strategies to realizing those goals are equally important and …

Special focus:
5/22:  Sun opposition Mars:  Spirited energetic focus on money, resources,  power and death and rebirth.
5/22: Mercury direct 9:19am (see other post)
5/24: Venus enters  Gemini.
5/24: Venus opposite Mars.   Male vs Female.   Values vs Energy… are they in sync?
Disseminating

Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.   And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information.
Focus on:  How are you sharing your inner CEO?  How are you sharing …

Scorpio ad 1953The moon is in the late degrees of Scorpio, this morning. She’s closing a conjunction with Mars retrograde in Sagittarius. It’s disturbing!

The moon will be full in Sagittarius later today. She’s opposing the Sun and Venus, two signs that like to be seen…and admired.  I don’t think many are ready to be admired in public just yet. Not with that Moon Mars situation!(…)

AstroGeek » Mercury Direct- Measure of a Man

May 21st, 2016 @ 6:01 am by AstroGeek

Redemption – vance by Michael Taggart, CCL

Effective Date:  5/22/16

Helios Says:

Are you done?

Honestly, I truly want to know. The way you have been talking, and the way that you have been thinking lately, it sure sounds like you are! You sound like you have given up- That you cannot take another step forward. It would be absolutely understandable, knowing what we know about what has happened to you- All those secret struggles, every loss, the looming abyss that is the future expanding in front of you; with your position in it growing more precarious with every step that you take. No one could rightfully blame you, with all of that in perspective- No one but yourself, that is.

There is no harsher judge at the end of the day, is there? At some level it has to …

Sagittarius Full Moon
May 21
5:41pm  EDT
The Sagittarius full moon is coming in with gusto.   Mars in Sag brings a warrior spirit.   We  should expect a lot of energy, which means there will be a shit load of people with a ton of opinions shooting off their mouth.
Yes, the loud people will be extra blustery.   But don’t be surprised if the so-called meek are found waxing on and on about what they believe.   Everyone has opinions this weekend.    Sometimes there is value in admitting what you don’t know….but no one is doing that this full moon.
Mercury the ruling planet of Gemini is retrograde for the launch of the full moon.   So, let’s not get too wrapped up when we are hearing the ‘facts’ laid out to us since they might not be exactly accurate.    It is not …

ElsaElsa » Marriage Vows

May 20th, 2016 @ 11:23 am by ElsaElsa

wedding cake topperI was raised without religion. I was not raised to think that marriage vows meant anything. Really, I had no idea what marriage was or what it meant. If anything, I thought it was something I should avoid. I had no earthly clue as to how marriage might be beneficial or in any way, important.

My childhood was unusual at the time. But now, I think that most (American) kids grow up, ignorant of how marriage might enhance their life. I’ve been thinking about this because my marriage has been exceptionally challenging lately.(…)

Ben and Jerry'sFriday is the first day of the Gemini Sun. Often when we’re this close to a full moon, the Moon is already in the Sun’s opposite sign. Friday night, the Moon is in Scorpio, a sultrier mood, powerful and deep. Sexy. (…)
