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 🙂

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.

June’s Colorful Dream

Dreaming is a part of our lives and we ALL dream. Even those who say they do not dream actually do. It’s a matter of calming the mind and allowing yourself to relax in order to dream. June is going to teach us all about dreaming and how to make our dreams a reality in a instant. Life as we know it has changed for all of us; some are handling it well while others are crumbling in the change. We all must understand we are being pushed to evolve. If we all want what we dream of then how are we going to make our dream come true? What steps are we taking to achieve this? But don’t you worry the planetary movements will be making you shift into your dream BIG TIME.

As the month commences we have three major planets in retrograde. Jupiter in Sagittarius, Pluto in Capricorn, and Saturn in Capricorn. In the middle of month another planet will be joining the backward dance but first let us talk about our new moon in Gemini. June 3rd is our new moon in Gemini bringing us messages from up above. Gemini is known as the child of the zodiac and the most communicative of all the signs. This moon will highlight these two aspects; for those of you with children you will be receiving news about or for your children, perhaps some help for them, communicating with them, and overall spending quality time with them. Communication will be important with this moon as well. Hearing from people you haven’t heard from in awhile, receiving out of the blue offers, communicating with deceased loved ones, receiving messages from the Universe, and having a very clear picture of your dream coming true. Utilize this moon by working with yellow, white, and blue candles. Spend time outdoors in a park watching and listening to the laughter of children. Vibe high because this moon’s energy requires high vibration in order to create your magick.

On June 4th we have Mercury joining Mars in Cancer. So, not only have our feelings been all over the place but now we will be communicating these feelings. Mars shifted into Cancer on May 15th causing a HUGE impact on everyone. Mars does not do well in this environment but it has been teaching us to appreciate this environment. The majority are having a hard time processing their feelings and understanding them. People are erupting, feeling uncomfortable, being impatient, and having very unusual dreams. Now, with Mercury shifting into Cancer we will be communicating our feelings the moment we experience them. There really won’t be much thinking going on when it comes to our feelings but instead just the urge to communicate them. Be patient not only with others but also with yourself for these next few weeks. Do keep in mind that you are NOT the only one experiencing chaos. We ALL are. We just have to ride out this wave and then hold our breath as we dive deep into our emotions and psychic awareness.

June 8th Venus shifts into Gemini until July 3rd and what a shift it will be. Not only is the sun in Gemini but we also had the new moon in Gemini on the 3rd and now Venus being in Gemini will be bringing communication galore. Everyone is going to want to talk, satiated their curiosity, and want what they want NOW. Patience is very important at this time and paying attention to detail but if you do insist on rushing anything you will miss so many important details that it will cause you to stop in your tracks. At this time some will be experiencing two of everything. While, others will be seeing another side of things and people they did not see before. Manipulation can and will occur for those who want what they want and even being deceitful just to get what they want. Be aware of your doings because not everyone will stand for it. You might have the misfortune of encountering someone who will force you to be honest. So, again tread carefully and do everything with honest intention.

Full moon is on June 17th; you will read it’s a Sagittarius full moon but it’s a cusp moon. The moon will be shifting out of Sagittarius in to Capricorn meaning it’s a very prophetic moon. If you thought your psychic awareness is already heighten it will increase even more with this moon. Dreams will be so vivid you will be able to taste it, telepathy will be so intense it could cause you to freak out, and even our daydreams will seem real. This is a great moon to do a big ritual and magick with. Not only are you working with Sagittarius optimism but you are also working with Capricorn focused determination. Black and purple candles should be used, going outside to ground should be done, writing a letter and burning it would be great, and even speaking your intent aloud and in present tense will create the magick you seek to achieve. Aim high because you will land your target.

Lastly, on June 21st we have Neptune going retrograde until November 27th. Neptune has been back home in Pisces since 2012 and will remain there until 2025. When Neptune does it’s retrograde dance our reality shifts in a big way. What we thought was reality is a lot more than what we realize it to be. Our dream will now shift big time and we will have the momentum to make it a reality. If we give up while Neptune is retrograding than it simply means you weren’t ready for your dream. You were only dreaming it and not believing it. When you believe in your dream you not only give it energy but you bring it to life. Dreams do come true but they come true with determination, faith, and gratitude. Understand with these major planets retrograding we are ACTUALLY being given the materials to make our dreams come true. What seems like utter chaos is simply the breaking away of the illusions and delusions which were preventing your dreams from coming into your reality. Chaos is a necessary energy in the creation process without it we simply cannot create. Don’t count your blessings instead be thankful for them. Every day wake up with gratitude in your heart and mind and you will see more things to be grateful for in your reality.

June is all about dreaming but making those dreams come true. Some of you have been dreaming for a very long time and now is the time to get a move on making your dreams a reality. I will end this article with a favorite song lyric from an old cult classic that my best friends and I used to watch growing up….“Don’t dream it. Be it”!

April’s Upside Down

As I finally sit down to type the astrological energy for the month we are in the mist our new moon in Aries. Tonight, the 5th of April is ushering in our new moon which has brought so much mixed energy for the collective. Some are setting intentions for new beginnings, while others are going through endings, others are purging and releasing old traumas, while others are being faced with fears, yet, others are on the verge of eruption from latent desires from within. This new moon has really ignited the fire within everyone. Whether it’s for change or endings the fire is lit and now as you watch it burn in all of its glory you are left to wonder now what? What a great question to ask and as we commence the month we will see and receive that answer.

On April 10th we have Jupiter retrograding in Sagittarius until August 11th. Jupiter has been back home since November of 2018 helping us all to expand in areas that we perhaps had been struggling with. We have all been putting in the work, the effort, and dreaming big. Plus, we have been seeing the big picture of our creation. Now, when Jupiter starts it’s retrograde motion we will be made to see how the tools we have been granted will be used to bring this big picture into the material. Even though we have been envisioning our dream we still needed to ground it. During this time we will be building the foundation of our dream, tackling all the little things to cement our dream, and living our dream. Sagittarius motto is, “I See” but with the vision comes the doing and when the Jupiter energy says, “I am ready. Let’s do this”. It gets it done. So, get ready to launch into action because NOW is the time.

April 19th we are having our full moon but this moon is a cusp. It is a Libra/Scorpio cusp moon. You will read that this full moon is in Libra once again but in reality the moon is transitioning over into Scorpio on this date. With that being said let us talk about the energy of this moon. This moon will be a bit erratic and people will be off balance. It will seem like everyone is walking on eggshells due to the impending feel of this moon. Some people will be high energy while others will be low energy. Listen, to your body and do what it is asking of you. Feelings will be running high and if you are on the receiving end of someone’s sentiments do your best to keep your cool and the find the logic behind the expression of feelings. Romance will be on everyone’s mind during this moon so taking deep breaths during this time will help with any arguments or with any jealousy that comes up. Do something nice for yourself, for those you care about, and for those you would like in your life.

Pluto will retrograde on April 24th until October 2nd in Capricorn. Pluto, has been visiting Capricorn for quite a while now. We all have been working through deep karmic issues not only from this life time but from other life times as well. This particular retrograde though is bringing us back to when Pluto first entered Capricorn back in November of 2008. Relationships are the main focus during this retrograde so don’t be too taken aback with the intense emotions that will all of sudden surface up not only from yourself but also from others. You see destiny is at play here and connections are being tested. Karmic ties of all kind will be changed and those that are meant to end will end. Those that are meant to help us leap will provide the leverage to do so. During this time dejavu will be prevalent. You are not going crazy you are just being made aware of how divine timing and intervention works. If you find yourself in the same karmic cycle know now is the time to break it and start anew.

Finally, on April 29th Saturn also goes retrograde in sign of Capricorn as well. Saturn has been back home now for well over a year. This retrograde will be in effect until September 18th. Now, is a time of big jumps in order to get ahead of the game. Think of the mountain goat climbing up the mountain. At times the goat finds itself on a ledge that it must jump in order to get on a more secured landing. When watching the goat one thinks it’s not going to make it; the gap is to wide and the landing is to narrow. Yet, that goat is focused and the next thing you know it leaps high into the air and lands on that narrow landing with such grace one can’t help but want to jump as well. Now, is the time to jump and to trust that you will land on your feet unscatch. Everything you have been working for is just one leap away. Once you leap not only will you catch the right gust of wind but you will land on the highest peak imaginable. You deserve this reward so don’t be afraid. For those of you who refuse to jump and are still living in fear your jumps will be fearsome. Only because you will be pushed to jump and your landing might cause a avalanche. Yet, this might be the push you needed in order to land the ground you had been hoping for.

April really is the month of things turning upside down either in a good way or in a bad way. Just remember it’s all in the mind, it’s a matter of perspective, and of staying in a high vibration frequency. I know it’s easier said than done especially when we are going through our life changes BUT we gotta remember we are always given what we can handle. What we think we can not turns out to be our greatest victory. Stay strong. Stay empowered. For life as you know it has changed and will continue to do so. Make those jumps and don’t be afraid this is exactly what you have been being prepared for and working towards. Happy April everyone!
