transits

Mercury retrograde in Leo, July 7th - 31st / Chiron retrograde in Aries July 8th - December 12th

The mythic messenger of the gods is going on it’s second retrograde voyage of the year — during a significant time of endings and beginnings — and soul teachings around choice in response to life’s difficulties. Have you contemplated the Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series in connection with the nodes in relationship to your personal birth chart? DM me for a reading! We are facing our deepest habitual karmic patterns, personally, ancestrally, and collectively. Consider what’s up for you and how the development of integrity, responsibility, and an ever-softening intuitive softness can support you.
.
Mercury retrograde can help us realign with our highest heart centered callings during this ripe time of transformation. Expect time to work differently and messages to be delivered spontaneously and through creative play. Make time for joy and pleasure— for activities that let your heart and light shine front and center. We are undergoing a lot and feeling is required around our darkest patterns and shadows. A best way to nourish the higher consciousness, awareness, integrity, and responsibility we need for this healing — may be JOY and PLAY.
.
Look out for defensiveness, self-centeredness, or later when Mercury returns to Cancer, oversensitivity. We can choose to respond to any opposition and chaos with appreciation for the push towards soul growth. We can respect our pain and allow it to teach us where we are caught. Never abandoning earth and body. In other words, no matter how transcendent our insight, we need to deal with what’s really going on for us. The invitation is to do so with unconditional acceptance, spontaneity, and taking pleasure in seeing.
.
Chiron’s retrograde too, deepens our inquiry around personal initiative and bravery. This will activate uniquely depending on your personal Chiron pattern, but let open-hearted or vulnerable hearted bravery and warriorship be an inspiration. We can revisit masculine and feminine archetypes in our psyche and open to new possibilities of being, healing, and autonomy.

Neptune-Saturn Sextile, Jupiter square Neptune, + Mercury-Mars in Cancer opposition Pluto, June 19th

Part I:

Considering that the Neptune-Saturn sextile is the source of some very dreamy and concrete inspiration, at the same time that Jupiter’s square to Neptune could really charge our dreams! These planets are in their own signs, empowering vivid potential energy. I’m contemplating the following as we navigate this dreamy, foggy, and greatly inspired time.
.
While incredible potential, good fortune, and vision are possible, we are in need of evolving our collective masculine/feminine archetypes on a collective scale (irrespective of gender identity). The shadow side of vision can manifest in how we go about showing up for our commitments and goals/dreams (Capricorn)? We are evolving our capacity as sage beings. While choice, integrity, schedule, and discipline are needed— perhaps even more relevant is our soulful need for softness?
.
The North Node in Cancer calls we learn to integrate intuitive knowledge and feminine wisdom into the reality of our daily lives. We need stand for softness in every dimension of our lives. The intuitive knowing and emotional capacity of the soft innards of a crab are perhaps the very anecdote we soulfully seek and need to make vivid in reality our aspirations. Likewise, the evolution of our healthy masculine archetype and paternal images on a collective scale, need - desperately - to integrate this side of the axis

Part II:

Mercury and Mars in opposition to Pluto today are whispering a warrior stance for gentleness and vulnerability especially strongly. Be aware of the intensity of this aspect and take the opportunity June 18-20 to look deeply at whatever is calling your care and gentler strategy. We can see through wherever we are stuck right now, but we have to look in a way that takes a mature responsibility (soft, feeling, and nonjudgmental) for our part. Where are we unforgiving? We might open to the discomfort within and around that. Inside of that, there is something to discover about what is going on beneath our shell.
.
The North Node directs us towards Cancer’s nurturing, soft, very human understanding, and radical acceptance. This applies to ourselves and ultimately - to all beings. Despite our disagreements, are you alive to what it feels like? We can transform with softness, feeling, and understanding. It’s a good moment to begin.

Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn + North Node in Cancer Reflection, June 12th

As you navigate Capricorn–Cancer, THIS. How does it speak to you? I see the white tiger’s tender jaws as the embodiment of harmonizing this axis. Firm and tender care, of our personal, inner, and outer cubs. We need healthy Saturnian jaws as well as heartfelt and nurturing responsiveness (Cancer). Look out for clenching too tightly or neglecting altogether tenderness and need. Astrologers will in chorus reflect on the upcoming conjunction between Saturn and Pluto, a significant collective transit we are all feeling. We are facing our debts in Capricorn - in the words of my friend @wildflower. Let this white tiger be an inspiration and example for parenting your own life, and encouraging the conscious evolution of our personal inner masculine/feminine archetype images and energies. It is my hope that by bringing awareness to THIS in us, we can support our collective as we experience this intense period. The potential may be that we learn to truly care, love, and support first ourselves — then our world.

New Moon in Aries, April 5th, 1:50 am PDT

Take a courageous and open hearted step. The New Moon is the first of the astrological new year and inspires us to authentically individuate and trust our paths while respecting commitments, family, traditions, and the consequences we are reaping from the past. We don’t need to be limited by past dogma or structures however and Aries is a fiery reminder of our freedom to tread as we are inspired to. The presence of the Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will be effecting us through the year and calls us to bring consciousness to especially the areas Capricorn influences in our birth charts. Intense reckonings are certain to occur so how can we practice discipline, patience, integrity, maturity, and wisdom? Our romantic hearts are likewise inspired and while we may sense our connectivity with and love for all beings, Capricorn insists on boundaries to protect our souls’ missions. This month we are coming out of the hazy yet healing lunar cycle that insisted we spend time in rest and recuperation mode. Consider that this month imagining is still influencing our mode, especially let the heart cleanse, forgive, and make aspirations. While we may be swept away into exalted ethereal states, the Aries Moon celebrates initiation and energy. Celebrate your life force, body, and presence this lunar cycle and begin again where fresh starts are in order. Visualize the peak with your heart, wear a red dress, dance, and blissfully indulge the butterflies of your perception. #newmooninaries

What has genuine value to me? What doesn’t? How do I do that?

For sure too, we can all benefit from rest, silence, and generosity, more than we think, or is comfortable.
