The Month of Illumination

The end of the year is here and I know some of you are wondering how it got here so quickly while others are thanking the heavens it’s almost over. I would like to say to all of you; be grateful instead because the fun is just getting started :-p

December is ushering us into an energy vortex like no other and this vortex will affect and effect us all very differently. Some are just getting started with their awakenings, others are in the mist of their chaos, while others are clearing old energy, and yet there are some who choose to remain stagnant. If there was ever a month were you needed guidance this would be it. Just do yourself a favor if you seek the guidance accept it; it’s what will help you to finish the year and start the new decade. 

On December 2nd we have Jupiter starting it’s transit in Capricorn until December 18-19th of next year. While, Jupiter was back home in Sagittarius he open up doors we couldn’t have possibly thought of. The fortune and misfortune we all encountered was all in preparation for this transit. Here Jupiter is comfortable being in Capricorn’s home. Why, do you ask? Well, that’s because his big brother Pluto and his grandfather Saturn have been doing their thing for quite a bit. So, now here comes Jupiter to make things happen in very big ways. Pluto in Capricorn has been helping us to clear old karma from previous lives and from this life as well. Saturn in Capricorn has been showing us where we need to be paying more attention and how to go about fixing things we have been denying. Now, with Jupiter in Capricorn we will take action on all the karma we have. Clearing karma isn’t the end all; you gotta actually heal it. During this transit we will become very aware of how this is a must. Don’t be a coward and don’t resist instead think of how you will feel once all this is healed. 

December 9th we have Mercury entering Sagittarius and trust when I say you will feel this shift. Mercury has been Scorpio for a little bit and the time has come for him to leave the darkness and come into the light. Once he does that light is going to be so damn bright no one will be able to shut their eyes from it. The truth of everything you MUST know will now be revealed. Mercury LOVES Sagittarius/Jupiter energy since it’s the opposite of it. Gemini is less explosive but a lot more curious than Sagittarius. Due to this the energy we all will be working with is curiosity which brings forth the truth of the matter. Be honest during this time and honesty is what you will receive. This is also a great time to delve deep into creative writing and journalism however be aware of gossip and getting lost in the world of social media. Everyone will want to be heard and they will be loud about it. 

The 12th of December is our full moon in Gemini and this moon not only will it be a powerful one but it will be the last hooray of the year in which the truth can not be denied any longer. This moon is the accumulation of the whole year and whatever you have been dismissing or denying will end with this moon. Remember we have the Sun in Sagittarius and Mercury in Sagittarius with the Moon in Gemini nothing but the truth shall be had. Working here with the wind element will be great while purple and yellow candles will be awesome for your full moon rituals. 

On this same day we have Chiron stationing direct in Aries leaving only one planet in retrograde still. However, now we are very aware of our wounds and how we have been self inflicting them as well. The self is now ready to continue in its healing in order to produce more desirable results when it comes to life. The shift in this planetary movement will be felt by all and some will be thankful for it 🙂

Venus will move into Aquarius on the 20th ushering in that mental energy not many will  survive this. Here we all will be in our heads where as before when Venus was in Capricorn we were analysing our relationships and their benefits now we will be obsessing on how to fix them to our benefit. No, this transit will not bring you more friends or that feeling of freedom. This transit however will be weighing us down and having us all thinking shit that MUST be cleared, forgiven, and healed. Communicating during this transit is ESSENTIAL because what you think is the right way of fixing a relation the other might not think so. This is where you will learn about enforcing your will onto others. Compassion is very important during this time and especially for yourself. 

Our new moon is on the 26th in Capricorn BUT it’s not just a regular new moon. It’s an annular solar eclipse. This new moon is bringing everything up from the very first eclipse we had in the year. Our first eclipse was on Jan. 5th in Capricorn which was also a new moon at the time and on Jan. 21st we had our full moon eclipse in Leo. Then our next set of eclipses all occurred in July. July 2nd was the new moon eclipse in Cancer and then the full moon eclipse in Capricorn was on 16th. Are you noticing the pattern yet? The sign of Capricorn is a no holds barred type of person especially when it comes to their MONEY, family, and personal gains. They are the POWERHOUSE of the zodiac. So, this eclipse will be no joke to the end the year in a no joke type of way. Do expect the unexpected. Do expect Universe to present to you what is RIGHT for you. Magical rituals will be powerful during this time. Working with the color black, fire, and nature will benefit your magick as well. Now, recall that not only is the moon in Capricorn but so is Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. A big karmic release will be healed at this time and the dharma you receive at this moment will be breathtaking. Whatever, your karmic theme was during the year you will be given the tools that will help you on your journey of self improvement and healing. Say thank you to the Gods for they are helping you to the end the year just right.

Lastly, on December 28th we have Mercury joining Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn. Mercury’s energy compared to these planets is a lot more free, younger, and quick. So, here we are getting a boost of fresh energy, mental stimulation, and ideas on how to make more dharma quickly. Just keep in mind though if you work at the pace Mercury moves you will have so many careless mistakes and perhaps procrastinate due to overconfidence that can have you mess up a HUGE opportunity during this time. So, instead take your time and listen to those old goats for they have a lot more wisdom and tricks up their sleeves on how to get things done just right. Timing is everything and Capricorn knows all too well about time and how to work it for their benefit. 

Catch you next year! Thank you all for reading my articles and for all the support you have shown me throughout the years.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Freedom At A Price(November 2019)

The long cooler days and nights are here making us want to keep warm. Some will venture to warmer destinations in order to escape the cooler weather. Others, will remain indoors allowing the darkness to consume them. Many will be wallowing in self pity while others will be enjoying the slowing down of things. The quiet brings much needed rest and peace. We all need this resting phase in order to continue to set ourselves free of whatever things are still clingy on. Do yourself a favor and don’t drive yourself mad instead find solace in the quiet retreat. 

November 1st Venus shifts into Sagittarius bringing truth, optimism, foresight, and a deeper understanding of those closest to you. This energy feels a lot lighter and playful and as such many will be in this engaging energy. Others, will not like the heat being presented to them because it means they have to face their truths, their negativity, and their actions will be questioned. When any planetary action is in Sagittarius it means the truth is up and center. Yes, things were revealed while Venus was in Scorpio but the truth was not a factor however now it is. Partnerships and relationships of all kinds will be scrutinized. Flying off the handle will happen from time to time and explosive anger will occur. Now, remember if you work with truth and integrity than you really have nothing to worry about. Just remember if you want the truth than be truth and you always receive it. Just keep in mind the truth hurts however it also sets you free. 

The full moon in Taurus is on the 12th shedding light in areas most won’t like the light being illuminated. Others, will thrive during this moon. Again, it all depends on where you are on your personal development and growth. This moon we can see people being selfish, playing martyr, being control freaks, and being overindulgent in every area in their life. On the upside there’s the energy to increase money, to be more disciplined in our lives, to be more grounded, more determined to get things done, and to have more control of ourselves. Depending where you are I would recommend being outside and enjoying the beauty of the moon. If you want to work with candles light green, pink, or white. Make yourself a good meal and go under your blankets and just relax. Life isn’t so bad and that is what this moon is showing us all. 

On the 19th Mars enters Scorpio lighting that fire once again. This energy is helping us to take action with all the things that were revealed last month. Now is the time to move forward leaving behind all the indecisive energy of last month. The Libra energy of last month was teaching us balance and it bought us options we needed to consider. What occurred was a restragerizing of plans. Realizing our chess pieces were not in the correct position. Now, with Mars in Scorpio we gotta be careful not to act on erratic emotions instead we should use our emotions to make intelligent moves for the long term. Emotions are a blessing and a curse at times however the more aware we are of them the better judgement we will have. Don’t let jealousy and ambition be your drive instead consider how everyone involved will be affected. Remember, you aren’t the only one dreaming; we are all in it together. A lot of deep breaths and understanding in order to see everyone is doing their best to conquer their shadow.

Mercury stations direct the very next day and by this time people will be running to the light. Everyone will have noticed that misery does indeed like company but it’s an unnecessary energy to be in. All the shedding that was done during this retrograde was necessary though. It gave much needed light in those dark hidden areas that were hidden for far too long. Thank the heavens it is over but most importantly thank God for those karmic lessons that are now healed. The world is now a much lighter place in the grand scheme of things. 

Venus shifts into Capricorn on the 25th bringing awareness to those who are of value to us. Partnerships and relationships take a much deeper and serious tone during this time. Only because everyone is assessing the value of everyone in their lives. Capricorn’s motto is, “I Use” keep this in mind as everyone is going to realize how they are being used and how they are using others. This transit can get dark very quickly but it will be a great healing time for those karmic lessons we perhaps are refusing to acknowledge. So, again breath deeply and proceed with caution, remember you are ascending not descending. However, if you find yourself lowering yourself for the benefit of others break free and leave it all behind. 

New moon in Sagittarius is the next day and you definitely want to work with this energy. The moon brings opportunities for travel, fortune, learning, and expansion of all kinds. Deep spiritual understanding is in the cauldron as well; so, take a sip of that yummy juice. Purple and blue candles will be great for this moon. Being around animals and children will bring that playfulness which many are in desperate need of. The truth will set you free with this moon. Put those running shoes on and set off to your new found freedom! 

The next day Neptune stations direct after being retrograde since April. Back when this shift happen everything got turned upside down and now everything will be right side up once again. So, get your scuba gear on because this tidal wave is enormous. Many will drown, while others will surf, and yet others will still be caught off guard by it. Nothing is an illusion anymore everything is in reality as it should be. The only delusions would be of those who don’t want to face reality. So, protect yourself and keep in mind crazy attracts crazy. More deep breaths and longer exhales will serve you well around this time because remember the holidays are here. Stress levels are higher around this time than any other time of the year. Do your best to enjoy your family and not be driven crazy by them. 

As the month ends you will be wondering what the hell happened but just know there is still more to come next month! 

Happy Thanksgiving!  

Shifting into Spring

Spring in full bloom with a calming pond
Shifting into Spring

Happy Spring Equinox darlings! March is here with the warm weather a lot of us have been dreaming about. Can you believe it’s March already? How quickly it came and it bought along some very interesting energy. If you thought in February you needed to ground it’s nothing compare to this month’s energy shift. Grounding is not only necessary but it’s obligatory; if you don’t ground you will either fly away in the chaos or drown in it. Choose your poison wisely with these changing currents.

The 1st of March we have Venus entering Aquarius after her stay in Capricorn last month. She was very content and happy there. A lot got done and much socializing was had but now she’s visiting the chaotic air of Aquarius. What does this mean? Well, if you thought you were easy going in the love department think again! Venus as much as she rules over Libra(air)and Taurus(earth)showing us the beauty of these two signs it’s nothing compare to the shadow side of her ruling these two signs. In this Aquarius energy she has our minds in overdrive; what we thought we knew is no longer what we know and what we will know now will blow our minds. Control, superior thinking, calculated movement, and surprising turn of events will have us all on our toes. Wanting to get to the bottom of things in our relationships will be of the utmost importance. Our connections will come to forefront to be scurinitized. Feelings we didn’t know we had or let alone understood will come spiraling out of control causing radical changes in our partnerships. Do your best to breath and to listen when communicating during this energicatic time. Friendships, community, and love are all coming to the light in order to make the changes we need to make.

The 5th of March Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces until 28th. Mercury has been in Pisces for a few weeks now doing it’s thing but now it’s time to dive deep into the Neptunian waters. All that daydreaming, imagings, and fantasizing will now come to a head. You will have no choice but to face your own mind and your heart in order to realize why the mind is such a powerful tool while the heart is the most powerful energy we can live in. As Mercury starts it’s retrograde in Pisces we will be still in Pisces season making us feel the energy shift deep down inside of us. You will feel your gut instincts which will drive you to lose all sense of control when dealing with reality. By the time Mercury stations direct we will be in Aries season cautioning us to temper our temperaments. In order to ground and have a sense of control of our reactions we should do baths, go near bodies of water, drink plenty of water, and rest. Don’t let the paranoia get the best of you during this time.

Visions will be amplified and our dreams will be vivid. We will sense things before they happen not leaving much room for shock but we will experience the shock only because we will not believe what we are seeing in our visions. Everyone’s energy will be effected and will change; so, do your best to protect your energy, cleanse it, and purify it during this time. Once Mercury stations direct on the 28th still in Pisces energy we will be able to better grasp the changing current. We won’t be afraid of the depth of our emotions or visions. Our big dreams will not be so taunting since we will have already started materializing them.

The new moon is on the following day in Pisces. Here we are being encouraged to use our daydreams and imagings to bring them into reality. Go over your dreams by writing them down, reading them aloud, and placing the paper under your pillow before going to sleep so you may get the how-to proceed with your dreams and how to bring them to life. Candles to work with would be pastel colors of blue, purples, pinks, greens, and even yellows. Scented candles of the ocean or sea and using seashells during your rituals for this new moon. Baths are always encouraged when working with the water element. Taking a stroll to a body of water would be a great way of receiving those in depth visions and psychic flashes. Doing visualization meditations during this moon will be a good way of seeing your dreams come into reality. Water meditations are a great way to increase your intuition as well.

On the same day Uranus enters Taurus for a very long stay causing very radical changes for the everyone! Changes with money, routines, home, and our comfort levels will change drastically and seemingly overnight for the next six years. It’s best not to resist the coming changes and actually welcome them with open arms because it’s not affecting just individuals but it’s affecting the whole world over. We will see these changes happening in the blink of an eye for everyone. Hold yourself down the because these changing winds are sweeping everything away that no longer serves humanity.

Our full moon is on the first day of Spring which is the 20th of March in Libra. The energy of this full moon is all love in all of it’s forms. Light and dark are being presented during this moon. Libra is depicted as a scale and it’s the only inanimate sign in the zodiac; Libra in it’s more enlightened self really does utilize it’s mind to weigh everything and balance everything. This moon is making sure we do the same. We must use both our mind and our heart to make much wiser choices when it comes to all relationships. Listening to all involve will really help in making a very wise move during this full moon. Strategy is key during this moon’s illumination but if you have been avoiding your relations with others this will be the moon to bring it all into light. Forcing you to deal with your poor decision making. Black, pink, and white candles will help with your rituals and spending time outdoors grounding will help you to understand what exactly is happening with your mind. Whatever shadow aspects surface during this moon it’s best to deal with it now as opposed to sweeping it under the rug. Cause darling the rug and wool will be pulled from under your feet and from your eyes.

Venus once again shifts her energy on the 26th leaving Aquarius and making her stay in Pisces until 20th of April. Venus will really enjoy her stay here since being in the watery depths of Pisces is like coming home. Some stories say she was Neptune’s daughter while others say she was born of her own accord. Either way the energy of love with the energy of romance will be flowing into all of our lives. Romantic surprises, love invitations, love letters(emails), romantic text messages, unexpected phone calls, and surprise visits are all in the making. If you believe it it will come. Just don’t get caught up with control, illusions, and jealousy because it will cause much chaos. Remember love is about two people coming together because of love. Be kind. Be patient but above all just be love.

On the 31st we have Mars entering Gemini until the 15th of May. Mars actually enjoys the Mercurian energy and can very much keep up with it and at times it even exhausts the Mercurian energy. Our ideas will ignite, our egos will enlarge, and everything we think will be said. Keeping up with your own selves is going to be quite the sight to see. If you can’t get your point across then come up with creative solutions to get it heard. Communication is key here and being mindful of everyone’s thoughts is also key. Do your best to not over exert yourself during this time period as well. Taking it one day at a time is best during this time but when you gotta make those jumps take them.  

March’s energy is bringing so much rapid change we will need to rest from time to time. The magic being revealed will actually have us all in higher vibrations working with higher frequencies. Allow the changes to occur how they are meant to. The fae will be frolicking with us. Plus, all the other magical creatures will be showing themselves as well. Enjoy the sound of the birds chirping and do stop to smell the flowers blooming.

Dreamy February

Ground

I would like to start first by acknowledging the fact that I am creating my article so late in the month. Our new moon in Aquarius came and went while Venus made herself comfortable in Capricorn the day before. We started the month with some interesting energy and we will finish it just the same. The eclipses from January brought many surprises, endings, and beginnings. January was definitely a month of shock where some of us were left gasping for air. Now, with February here January seems like it happen ages ago. The energy is so much more different now which isn’t a bad thing. Always, remember to see the blessings even when it hurts and it looks bad. The blessing is there.

On February 3rd we had Venus enter Capricorn until the 28th. The energy here is all about partnerships which are long lasting. Venus likes it here; she feels the safety, warmth, security, stability, but most importantly the long term commitment. Partnerships of all kind were highlighted, shown, and presented to us. We are all assessing those who we have commitmented to, who we are commitmenting to, and deserve our commitment. This energy is a no nonsense frequency; you are being made to see your partnerships and also how you are in a partnership. What no longer serves you is no longer serving. What does serve you is being thrown at your face. Do yourself a favor and don’t wallow in this energy either because the opportunity to make strong commitments will pass you by.

February 4th was our new moon in Aquarius. Here we were working with electrifying energy. We were to spark our intent up and see it soar up into the sky. It took flight while we remained grounded. Flashes of insight and future events were shown to us but whether we believed it or not still remains to be seen. How much did you believe in the visions being given? Did you have this inner knowing things would be going down the way that they are now? Everyone’s intuition was heighten but some are seeing it more as paranoia because they are not ready to handle the high frequency we are working with. Some people still are very much in high ego while others are resisting the change we are all going through at this very moment. Go with the flow and allow your intuition to lead the way.

Mercury on the 10th entered Pisces and will remain there until April 16th. We will experience our first retrograde of the year in March when Mercury starts it’s backward motion in Pisces. So, what does this mean? Well, the Mercurian energy here is quite wishy washy. Mercury energy is of logic and action while Pisces is of dreams and comfort. So, how exactly does this energy work for us. It works in the sense where curiosity leads while our imagination is running wild. So, one must ground yet again. Explore your curiosity while reigning in your imagination. Don’t get to comfortable with only imagining and not taking action steps towards this vision. Remember the saying, “curiosity killed the cat” but cats are known to have 9 lives. You will be given chances to explore, to communicate what you are feeling, but most importantly to see your imaging come to be. Work on this vision now before Mercury retrogrades(not that it won’t come to be)but once the Rx happens emotions, patience, jealousy(envy), and control will be a factor. Get all your brainstorming done now before next month.

On the 14th of February besides it being Valentine’s Day for some we also have Mars entering Taurus. This energy will also be conflicted in sense that Mars is about impulse and action and just getting what one wants as opposed to Taurus energy where slow and methodical gets you further and it gives you what you want for the long haul. Determination and patience is our friend with this conflicting energy. One must think not for the short term but for the long term. Not give up but continue forward knowing hard work not only pays off at the end but it’s so rewarding when it does pay off. Ground yourself and don’t let others’ impatience and aggressiveness get the best of you and your plan.

Finally, our full moon for February is on the 19th in Virgo. Giving us that grounding energy we so need. A lot of us are all over the place and grounding is key to set these long term commitments into forward motion. Our Virgo full moon should be utilized for our benefit in our creations. If you want to cleanse; cleanse. If you want to set intentions; then do so. The moon’s energy should be utilized the way you see fit and feel guided to do. Brown, green, and pink candles can be used, being in nature would be great, and perhaps doing some sort of mud bath or a mud mask would be even cooler. The point is to ground and stay grounded. Think long term; write your commitments down, write your plan down(step by step)and bury it. Trust in the Universe.

This month is all about dreaming, about being commitmented to your dreams, and what you are doing to materialized them. Don’t let the opportunities pass you by and don’t let the naysayers bring you to their vibration. Stay vibing high and ride the wave of a higher frequency. You got this. This is what you have been working for you. Create your life and don’t let anything deter you.

One more thing it is now the year of the Earth Pig. So, oink oink baby. It’s all for the taking. You can and will have it all but first some hard work has to be done so you can roll in the mud filled with happiness 🙂

Namaste,

Seshat

January The Month Of Creation


Full Moon and Goat

Happy New Year! 2019 is bringing us so much new energy to work with. This is the year to create your life; to take precedence over yourself; to not let lower vibrational energies to consume you any longer. When we add 2019 it adds up to 3; which is giving us the energy to create. 3 in numerology terms is all about creation, self expression, being optimistic, being joyful, socializing, but most importantly spiritual practice. This is the time for expansion, illumination, and just plain old fun.

We start January with quite a powerhouse of energy upgrades. We celebrated the new year with Mars going back home into Aries. Everybody felt that shift of energy leaving Pisces waters of illusion. Once out of there we realized the year was over and we were ringing in the new year. Many found themselves wondering how in the hell we got here so quickly? Many found themselves wondering what in the hell happen in 2018 and was it over yet? Hopefully, all the lessons from 2018 we all experienced will serve us some good in this new year of creation. As the month progresses we will feel, see, and understand what we are working with.

On January 5th we have our new moon in Capricorn and this new moon is one of five eclipses we are having this year. It’s a partial solar eclipse which will be visible in some parts of Alaska and North Pacific. The majority of us won’t see it but we sure as hell will feel it. Dreams will be intense, old karmic cycles will break, patterns will dissolve, low vibrations and frequencies will break away, and all the while tangible energy is being offered to us. We are encouraged to work with this energy and not be afraid of it. This is our chance to set our goals for the year and have them materialize. Even if the eclipse illuminates the darkness take note that it is being illuminated so you can work with it and shift it into more light. Capricorn’s motto is, “I Use” so, with this being said use the tools, people, situations, etc Universe is offering you to improve your self, circumstances, etc.

The very next day we have Uranus stationing direct in Aries. Uranus started it’s retrograde motion back in November and now will start it’s movement forward. Two planets in Aries energy meanwhile we have two planets in Capricorn energy as well(Saturn and Pluto)with all this cardinal energy plus the partial solar eclipse this is really the time to take initiatives. To step up your game as a leader. To empower yourself as a leader. Don’t rebel, resist, or fight those who are in power because you will be left behind. Wondering what the hell hit you and you won’t see a way out. Attacking and fighting is not the way you want to start the new year. Instead, ask yourself what should you be starting now?

January 21st is our second eclipse and this one is total lunar eclipse. This blood moon will be in Leo and this is also the moon known as the wolf moon. What does this mean in reality? Well, this moon will heighten our instincts. It will heighten our protection. It will heighten our sense of smell and stealth. People will want to be heard and they will be loud about it. Think of the howl of the wolf and of the roar of the lion. Cats and dogs will be acting weird and don’t be surprised if you happen to get chosen by a cat or dog this full moon. Dreams will be active and the messages will be loud. Peoples’ ego and pride will be front and center. Everyone will want attention. Desires will be heighten and jealousy could get the best of people. Protect yourself and do your best to harness the power of this moon.

This blood moon will be visible for all of North America. Lasting quite bit with it’s majestic beauty for all to view. Leo has two mottoes, “I Want” and “I Will” keep this in mind when engaging with others and when doing your magic…

Tools to use for the moons would be pen and paper to write your goals down. Spending time in nature by trees. If you can hike do so; this will help ground you during these powerful moons. Bask in the moon’s and in the sun’s power. Color candles to burn would be black, orange, and yellow. Crystals to use would be garnet, onyx, tourmaline, jet, sunstone, amber, peridot, and pyrite. Whenever setting intentions, incantations, when making magic you must speak it, beside think it, and giving it the energy it requires. You must always believe in what you are doing otherwise it won’t work. Chakras to focus on would be base, root, sacral, and solar plexus.

Please, don’t forget you are creating this year and you are creating with these two very powerful moons. Yes, some will be releasing but just keep in mind whatever it is you are releasing is for the best. The blessing is there it’s just a matter of acceptance, growth, and the betterment of yourself.

Many blessings to all. May this new year bring you all you deserve. Be magic. Be peace. Be love.

Namaste,
