Ann Kreilkamp ~ Aftermath, New Moon in Taurus: Starting Over from Zero

I enjoyed this post from Ann Kreilkamp, and I’ve noticed similar reboots for a number of people, including myself. In retrospect, I also experienced some of my most amazing dream downloads ever exactly when the fast moving Moon conjuncted my natal Mercury at 4 degrees Gemini. That was a direct hit of early morning insight and inspiration! For anyone who’s had a particularly rich or intense past week, this post offers some larger astrological context. I love the Edith Piaf song at the end.

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Aftermath, New Moon in Taurus: Starting Over from Zero

The powerful Taurus New Moon of May 4th has come and gone. And if you are one of those who found that some long simmering drama finally came to a head during that time and continues now to completely dissolve a Neptunian spell that you had been under for the past two years (one Mars cycle) via new information (Mars in Gemini) which blew your previous world-view to smithereens (Jupiter in Sagittarius), these three planets, Neptune with Jupiter, triggered by fast-moving Mars, in a three way, very stressful, and very enlightening T-cross, then congrats. You’re not alone. I personally know two people  whose primary relationships, each two years long, blew up over these last few days, and precisely due to new and startling information, leaving both of them at zero, starting all over again.

Happy Love Day + Eclipse Energy Info

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Love Day, however you celebrate the force of Love in your life. Below these beauties, you’ll find information on tomorrow’s eclipse. My natal chart features an Aquarius Moon, so I’ve already been feeling this energy. I know some people prefer to ignore the Moon, but given tides and our own water content, I still find it valuable to know what the energies support. Go with the flow and all that. 😉 Please use your own intuition and discernment, and feel the Love …

Timothy Glenn ~ Lunar Explorations

He’s ba-a-a-ck! After his last post rocked many a worldview, Timothy Glenn returns as promised to discuss the moon and its influence. How to introduce this post? Hmmm … here’s what Tim said in his email to me:

“The moon is currently part of our experience. We can learn to deal with it, work around it, or even utilize it without surrendering to its influence. The suggestion here is to exercise vigilance so as to make informed choices. Again we swing back to Carl Gustav Jung: ‘Don’t fight forces, use them.’”

“The only thing you can ever know for sure, is that you can never know anything for sure.”

And with that intro, here’s Timothy Glenn:

 

Lunar Explorations

Let’s explore theories of the origin and nature of the moon. Indigenous peoples and ancient writers have spoken of the time before the Earth had the moon. She was inhabited by humans, who passed on their remembrances of life on Earth when there was no such thing as the moon we now have.

The July 1970 edition of the journal Sputnik featured an article by Russian scientists Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov: Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ Eclipsing Our Reality

This just in from astrologer, numerologist and author, Timothy Glenn, along with a short note/trigger warning:

 

Eclipsing Our Reality

By Timothy Glenn

We have been hearing lots of hubbub around the subject of the August 2017 eclipses, the opening of the lion’s gate, and especially the anticipated impact of the August 21st total solar eclipse on the United States.

First there will be two warm up exercises. Depending on where you are on the planet, the lunar eclipse will occur at 15 degrees Aquarius on August 7th or 8th. This will be followed by the Perseid meteor shower, which will peak on August 12th. These events will set the stage for the main attraction.

As the meteor shower is ending, Continue reading

Black New Moon and the Black Madonna

A beautiful post by Jamie! I especially love this part:
“In this case, Wisdom is what got repressed, shunned, negated, and (it was hoped) erased (but she’s persistent, this one, and had her Keepers of the Flame all along the way).

“But by virtue of the symbolism, the Black Madonna:

“’… has no qualms with standing for humanity, for Wisdom or the Heart, for authentic being, or standing up to power that has been abused and become tyrannical, oppressive, and socio- and psychopathic. That means outside of us, as well as where we’ve internalized the ‘voice of tyranny’.’”
Much more when you click through….

The second of two new moons in Aquarius is called a ‘black moon’ because it’s the third of four new moons in the season (there are usually just three).

When I saw the ‘black moon’ reference at Earthsky.org, theBlack Madonna arose in my awareness.

She’s been surfacing for me again anyway in recent months, not that she’s ever that far away.

But there’s always something very timely when the Black Madonna comes calling.

The Black Madonna, like Durga, arises when she’s most needed. Like now.

How might the Black Moon Aquarius and the Black Madonna be related?

We can only open to inspiration and Divine guidance on that, since both are linked to Mystery and the ‘field of pure potentiality’ from which all manifest life is born.

Let’s look at a few clues and see what they might…

Kelley Hunter ~ Shelter from the Storm

Happy New Moon! Thanks to Gillian for this one:

New Moon @ 6 Cancer, June 27, 4:08am EDT, 1:08am PDT, 9:08am GMD

During this Cancer New Moon, we seek shelter and safety during what may feel like a rather stormy, yet exhilarating July. For the next week or so, fireworks ignite in the global transformation process as the Sun moves into the potent Pluto-Uranus Square. We hunker more deeply into our core for this intense, opportune offer of dynamic consciousness awakening. Already this year has been the peak of a rare planetary pattern that brings us to the next level of The Sixties. At moments during this process, like now, we may feel a very sweet, compassionate sensation, as if a divine mother is soothing and guiding us. We are helping each other in many ways as we make our way through these rough waters to safe harbor.

The Sabian Symbols are images that amplify the meaning of each degree of the Zodiac. This New Moon is at 6 degrees of Cancer with this essentially Cancer image:

In Spring, Game Birds Are Feathering Their Nests

Attention to home and hearth, inviting growth and well-being, preparing the ground for the inevitable change of the seasons.

Astrologer Lynda Hill, in her book, The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle, pictures “the desire for security amidst a rather risky situation…in readiness for new beginnings and new life.” She further writes, “Any security might only be temporary. Be careful not to become complacent, and ensure that you aren’t frightened at any sudden surprises or moves.”

These times we live in are relentless, urgent for growth. As the Sun in Cancer moves further into the Uranus-Pluto Square, we may have to relinquish cherished situations, relationships or experiences that we are growing beyond. It is time to stretch out beyond the crab shell that is pinching, tightening, like the womb when it becomes too small to contain the new life ready to be born. As we open to and welcome the new, have faith that it is for the best, we are feather our nests with a level of emotional comfort and stability that we need. We find safety and security blossoming from the inside out.

One of Cancer’s profound lessons is to realize that change is one constant we can count on; there is no holding on to the past. Change = growth in some form, even as we expand beyond limitations of that old shell. A little feng shui is in order to attune our inner space to the emerging energetic fields. The landscape in and around us is changing. Do you feel it? Of course. As we find the note, the tonality that pleases, that feels most resonant, we find our pathway to go with the flow. We rearrange our lives. Be radical. Trust yourself. Remembering, as Edith Wharton wrote, “Life has a way of overgrowing its achievements as well as its ruins.” Too much of a good thing is not good anymore. It is time to let go and move on to greener pastures.

Wisdom planet JUPITER is finishing its enriching year in Cancer. At this New Moon, Jupiter is at a pivotal point, stretching us to fulfill our destiny. It feels like a warm, big hug, giving us a hearty send-off—”Go forth and prosper!” Big Planet Jupiter prepares to move into the creative fires of Leo in mid-July. Let’s see what else Jupiter suggests from its Sabian Symbol of 26 Cancer:

Guests Are Reading In The Library Of A Luxurious Home

Home again, we turn to the wisdom of the ages, learning new things and, perhaps, stretching our hearts and minds beyond old belief systems that no longer ring true. We consult with the ancestors. We feel resonance with something greater than ourselves. We share what we know. We offer what we have to give. We find support and comfort in the perennial wisdom of the ages, as we take each step, remaining fully in the present as we move into today’s future. Indeed, with this New Moon cycle, we are moving into a key turning point of 2014, with Jupiter opening expansive opportunities to become more of who we truly are.

RETROGRADE MERCURY reverses its direction in a few days, turning with the calendar month. We had PLENTY (a Jupiter word) of introspective, retrograde reflection and reconsideration all year. Now is the time to move on. The caravans are pulling into formation. The wagon trains are heading west. What is our modern equivalent of the pioneering trails? That’s where we are all going, listening to our “compass rose,” our heart’s directive.

Along with the forward movement of Mercury, the end of June features two other planetary patterns with very different flavors.

MARS directly opposite Uranus on this New Moon can play out in a challenging, potentially nasty power punch leading to sudden breakthroughs, split ups, and outbreaks of revolution or violence. We already see such activity in several global hot spots. We can’t assume we are being told the truth about what is going on amidst hidden negotiations behind the scenes.
No matter. Let’s attend to our clarifying our own energy and how we plan to proceed. I like what Aussie Astrologer Maggie Kerr wrote:

“With change agent Uranus opposite activator Mars in the New Moon planetary mix there can be apparently ‘unexpected’ moves…which are not really so unexpected…you’ve just been putting them off. Remember not to project any confusion or anger at others, as the whole point of this past year has been to become aware of old limiting feelings, clear & release them, dismantle our defenses, and give ourselves permission to trust our feelings in a whole new way.”

A basic life choice is to fear or to love. The results of these extremes are evidently playing out. All year we have been weighing our options in view of fresh possibilities. Something must be done and we can’t do it the old way. We each count. We each make our choices. Bridges are burning behind us, as we reach toward a cosmic beckoning hand. A lovely and loving flow of sensitive, caring energy saturates our feelings, highlighted by some special moments where everything synchronizes beautifully like an uplifting symphony, a prayer, a divine decree.

How do we juggle these two streams in our experience? It likely requires a paradigm shift. It can happen inside any moment. With this New Moon, a strong, incoming creative rush of delight in alternative possibilities gives us the heart and courage to go for the gold.

Baci e abracci— kisses and hugs!
Namaste—I salute the god/goddess in you.
Aloha — The shared spirit within us is in harmony with all that is.
Vaya con Dios — Go with God.
Shanti, Shalom, Dona Nobis Pacem — Peace, peace, grant us peace.

This Is Your Mind on Neptune – Today’s New Moon in Gemini

As usual, Emily provides an excellent description of today’s energies. Happy New Moon!

virgo magic

gemini new moon collage by Emily

Today’s New Moon is super-Neptunian – are you feeling it? Sleepy, spacey, weepy, overwhelmed… Honestly, I’m feeling so freakin’ lazy that I just want to refer you to (or plagiarize from) the post I wrote about last year’s Gemini New Moon, because it’s basically the same deal (well, this New Moon is a little different, but last year’s post is still worth reading or re-reading).

The New Moon (at 7 degrees Gemini) forms an exact square – 90-degree, challenging angle – to Neptune, God/Goddess of the Ocean (at 7 Pisces). The typically light, airy, intellectual, chatty, busy-busy Gemini New Moon instead takes on a Neptunian flavor – watery, deep-feeling, uber-sensitive, imaginative, inward-turning, and potentially escapist, addictive, self-pitying and victimy (shadow Neptune).

Drawing us further into the dreamtime, Neptune is also stationing – standing still in the sky before turning Retrograde on June 9. We’ll continue…
