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!  

Time To Shift Into Gear(September 2019)

Finally, September is here bringing us much needed relief and cooler temperatures for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Autumn is in the background waiting to bring all her glorious energy. Yet, we must acknowledge that we are finishing off the summer which always brings a very nice feeling. Children are getting ready to go back to school with some excitement and dread but yet knowing it means Halloween is coming. We finished August with very intense energy which all of us felt. When the planets shifted into Virgo we were all made to see where we have been wrong, where we need healing, where we have not been paying attention, and how our observations weren’t really observations. 

At this very moment we have four planets in Virgo and they are Mars, Mercury, Sun, and Venus. So, to say we have slowed down is a big understatement because we also have Uranus in Taurus which is in retrograde until Jan. 2020 plus both Pluto and Saturn are still retrograding in Capricorn as well. We are in a lot of earth energy which in turn has us viewing things in a manner we did not see before. Or I should say we DID NOT want to see before because let’s be real earth signs don’t know how to be wrong and let alone apologize for it. With all the Virgo energy we are being FORCED to see these mistakes, flaws, stubbornness, narrow mindness, and just where we are still stuck. The energy is asking us what in the hell are you doing about it? Are you still going to sit there and continue being wrong or are you going to heal? This month of September starts rather slow because we are all doing healing yet it’s going to shift gears rather quickly half way in the month. 

On September 14th is when the gears shift from slow to fast in a millisecond. We have Mercury and Venus shifting into Libra and our full moon is in Libra. Mercury in Libra isn’t so bad, however it can be pretty bad. We go from being analytical with our words and not being emotional to charming with our words and being very emotional. This can swing either way; remember Libra is the scales of the zodiac and we gotta be very aware of the words we are choosing to use. Those scales are not made of plastic but of metal and they are heavy. Venus in Libra is most definitely happy here. This is her home and she LOVES it here. It’s her sanctuary. This is her safe space where she is free to be herself and be herself she will be. We will all feel this shift of energy. LOVE will be on everyone’s mind and heart. People you didn’t even know were interested will be showing you that they are, people who you knew to be interested will now be loud about it, and for those who have lost all hope in love will be made to remember why love does exist and why it is the strongest of all forces. YET, I am here to say don’t get selfish because you will regret it. Sharing is caring and jealousy does not sit well with many. Be yourself and trust that who is meant for you will be for you. You don’t have to force or manipulate in order to get the person you love. 

The full moon also on that same date will amplify all the energy shifting into Libra. The moon will be in Pisces and it’s either going to show you the reality of things in a big picture or you are going to be clouded in illusion making this shift in energy a lot more complicated to navigate BUT navigate you will and the illusions and delusions but most importantly the disappoints you have experienced in love will be wiped clean. This moon you can do whatever your intuition is guiding you to do however I will recommend a bath to clear you of whatever negiviatity you have with love. Care for yourself this day; perhaps do a nice beauty ritual and you can even honor the Goddess that you are and the Goddess of Love herself. 

September 18th we have Saturn stationing direct in Capricorn shifting reality even more so. Saturn started it’s retrograde back in April and has been in Capricorn for two years now. Karma has been an ever present energy which has either gotten worse or better depending on your growth. Karma misses no one and karma is something we all carry with us yet karma can liberate us from toxic cycles that have been impending our growth. So, depending on you this shift in gear will either be a pleasant one or a very huge wake up call that you knew was coming yet you thought you wouldn’t be hearing from it. As much as time is man made time will eventually catch up to you. Saturn is Father Time and he takes his time with each and every single one of us. 

Lastly, on September 28th we have our new moon in LIbra. By this time we will have four planets in Libra. Mercury, Moon, Sun, and Venus all in Libra has us showcasing our feelings to the world. We are moving in a speed we weren’t moving in before and we are charming everyone including our damn selves. Do heed this message though this new moon is about weighing your options. Assessing your choices. Asking yourself how does this benefit me and for how long does it benefit me? Working with pink candles, pink crystals, the color pink, doing a bath, and going outside are all things I would recommend for your rituals. Don’t forget though to say THANK YOU for all the choices you do have in order to be weighing them and strategizing on how to move with them. 

Goddess, what a year it has been and here we are with only three more months left in the year. What more surprises does the Universe have in store for us? I know that being in this very moment is all that matters and what will be will be and what will come will come. So, hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen for the ride has only just begun 🙂

Namaste

The Calm After The Storm

Happy August everyone! The calm is settling in now and thank the Gods it is. July was a very intense month and I know I felt the intensity of it all. The phoenix burnt itself and now has risen from the ashes but yet I feel some are still burning and are about to rise from the ashes. Divine timing is definitely at play here and everyone’s timing is different. No one is racing each other but instead we are all in this rat race called life. Yet, the energy of this month is saying slow down this isn’t a race but instead it is a journey. It is an adventure and why not enjoy this adventure and take in all the sights and smells. Either way August will have us in calmer energy but it won’t happen until the middle of the month.

On August 11th we have the biggest planet in our solar system stationing direct and thank the Gods that it is!!! Jupiter has been retrograding since April and it made all of us slow the fuck down and it made us pay attention to all the details in our lives. Jupiter not only rules philosophy and higher learning but it also rules fortune. So, whatever misfortunes you experienced during these months were actual blessings and the fortune you did receive during those months were to help you to plummeted forward when this gas giant starts moving direct once again. So, hold on to your hats because we are all going to be launched into forward motion. All the details have been accounted for and now the arrow can be let go of because now is the time and you will hit the bullseye.

Mercury enters Leo on the same day and will remain there until September 14th. Our communication is on fire now. Where as before it was in watery Cancer and it had us expressing and understanding our feelings and bought a lot of psychic awareness onto our immediate world. Now, with Mercury in Leo not only are we expressing ourselves but we are also showing off. This energy helps us to express our inner most desires, show them, and go after them. Ego can and will get in the way so do your very best to think five times before speaking and check yourself if you find yourself in a place of ego. We can get all that we desire with the right wording and those that we go after will definitely help fulfill those desires. Remember as much fun as fire is to watch and how necessary it is; it’s also a destructive force that can destroy all your hard work. So, a word of caution keep your fire under control and the warmth of your fire will bring those close to you in order to share in it’s beauty and warmth.

On this same day we also have Uranus starting it’s retrograde in Taurus until January of next year. Unexpecting surprises involving money, home, comfort, and luxury will be felt by the world. This energy is an overall collective shift; Uranus has been in Taurus since May of 2018 and will remain there for another six years. Everything involving monetary and comfortability is being shaken to the core. We are all feeling this collective shift and at first it’s very shocking but the end result will be a pleasant surprise. Uranus rules Aquarius and being innovative is a plus. Taurus which is ruled by Venus actually brings us very beautiful surprises in the home front, money, comfort, and love. Now, that Uranus is retrograding we are seeing where things are no longer working and how unique ideas can help us move forward. Being fixated on our unique ideas is actually a good thing right now. It’s helping us to stay the course and giving it all the attention it requires for it to be long term. Don’t worry about those things that didn’t work out; be thankful that they didn’t and you can let it go in peace.

The 15th of August is our full moon in Aquarius bringing in those rapid changes we need in order to keep the momentum going. Whatever shocking news you receive during this time it’s actually for your benefit. Even if at first it seems chaotic and like it makes no sense you will soon realize it does make sense. This is exactly what you needed in order to bring on these last minute changes. Without these out of the blue changes you would not be able to keep moving forward. The energy of this moon is actually a very positive one that we all will be thankful for. There’s nothing to worry about here and even if you do get bad news it’s actually going to benefit you in the end. Just don’t let it deter you and consume you where you remain fixated on the negative and not seeing the positive it brings.

Mars enters Virgo on the 18th and will remain there until September 14th. Here the energy is calm, cool, and collective but once it is ignited it can be quite harsh, critical, and judgmental. Yet, this energy isn’t about passing judgement but it’s about analyzing and healing what NEEDS to be healed. Here we are learning to temper our temperament and to really consciously decide what battles we should actually be fighting. If you are one of those who seem to constantly be fighting you will be crushed in this energy. It will seem like you are being attacked but in reality you are being made to see what you reflect onto others and how this needs to be healed. Finding a healer during this time will be increasingly important for your personal growth. Stop resisting and start healing. The healing you do now will bring you the vibration you need to be in order to continue on your path of growth. You are being supported at this time because the help was always there you just didn’t want to accept it or see it. Open up, start healing, and accept the help being offered.

Venus on the 21st enters Virgo and remains there until the 14th of September. Even more healing will be occurring at this time. This time it’s all about our love and how we express it and show it. Partnerships of all kinds are being highlighted and what is being shown to us is the ones that are in desperate need of healing. Again, if you are feeling attacked it’s because you are being shown your reflection. Purging isn’t going to help but healing will. You can purge all you want but if you aren’t acknowledging your role in things than you aren’t healing nor are you growing. If you want what you never had before than you gotta do something you have never done before. Fear here is not an option; courage on the other hand is. The more courageous you are the more you will break out of your comfort levels and stagnation. Allow both Mars and Venus to show you the way, observe, analyze, and heal.

On the 29th we have Mercury also entering Virgo and Mercury is home here. In the astrology world some of us astrologers believe Mercury is just the temporary ruler of Virgo and it’s rightful ruler will be discovered soon enough. Mercury ruling Virgo of course has its benefits but it really does not suit here because Mercury is a fast moving energy and Virgo is a slower moving energy. The keyword for Virgo is methodical and now with Mercury being at home until the 14th of September as well; being cautious goes out the door. We will all be moving at a very steady pace, we will be taking everything in, attention to detail will be happening, but the action is what’s going to push us forward. Communication is definitely key during this time and our words can either bring us what we want or it can hinder us. Remember you get more bees with honey than with vinegar and if you want what you want than observation, analyzation, and choosing your words wisely is of great benefit to you. Do take note with this third planet being in Virgo you are in fact being made to see how healing is ESSENTIAL. Words are everything in this world but if there is no substance or action behind them being left in the dark is your only option. Heal your communication skills and I promise you change will occur overnight.

Lastly, On August 30th we have our new moon in Virgo plus the sun is in Virgo as well. This is a lot of Virgo energy but knowing that Virgo is the healer of the zodiac is very important here. You see Virgo rules health and with all these planetary alignments in Virgo we are being made to see where healing has to occur. I am sorry to say to those who thought you were healing or doing healing work you will be shown how you have only been skimming the surface of your actual healing. This new moon is not about putting a bandage over the wound but it’s about healing this wound so no more bandaging is required. Do expect though a very beautiful surprise seemingly out of nowhere and from someone you would have never expected it from. You deserve this attention and you deserve to be calm and at peace. You earned this tranquility and your reward is well deserved.

Enjoy August for it holds so many beautiful surprises which will have you crying from joy and shouting thank you to the Gods.

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
