Radiant Heart – Venus in Libra II

venus in libra

Venus in Libra til Jan 1, 2019 brings us an offering, and an invitation. As the teacher in the material world of the senses – Venus invites us to find wisdom and the true Heart of Love through our relationship with desire. Desire for comfort, for romance, for sex, for luxuries. Desire for acknowledgement, pleasure and ease. Desire for friendship, joy and dancing. In the coming months, She asks us, are you ready to Fall in Love? To find the courage to change patterns that cause you grief, turmoil and attachment? Continue reading

First Quarter Moon

half moon

We are one week from full moon! The first quarter moon is on the knot between Scorpio and Sagittarius; this knot is called Mula star, and represents a whip made of roots, knots that trip us up. Transits to this point push us to reach deep and pull up obstructions and tangles deep in the psyche; and then goads us to get to work!

Today we sense a tension, we must keep our hands steady, draw back the string with strength and keep our eye on the goal.  The arrow rests lightly, between tension and freedom, not yet sent towards its target. After some deep soul work & emotional churning over the weekend, we receive a deepening of our commitment to our Work. Not through delight, but determination tempered by wisdom. Saturn has a few words for us during this phase of the moon cycles, he is in Sagittarius until 2020. Sagittarius is an optimistic and philosophical sign, concerned with the highest truth and the noble quest. Continue reading

Goddess Venus, brightest star in the sky, is now in Libra, and she stays there til Jan 1! Relationships of all kinds are in focus. We project our best traits onto the beloved. And when things aren’t perfect – or our pain arises – we see our own lack, our flaws or what we fear most – writ large in their eyes. Venus invites you to join her on her long journey through her kingdom of Libra. She comes to teach us about love, to develop a Radiant Heart, Continue reading

Love in The Balance – Libra Moon Cycle

Happy Diwali for all my friends who celebrate the festival of lights.
May love fill your heart and the light of awareness guide you to your destiny.

The New Moon in Libra is the Solar New Year, the coming full moon of this lunar cycle is the first sign of Aries. This is a powerful month being both the new solar year and the month that Saturn leaves Scorpio, for Sagittarius after almost 3 years in  Scorpio. More on what that’s been about here.

Jupiter and Mercury, Moon and Sun align on this New moon. Jupiter is the planet of blessing and wisdom, Mercury – intelligence and strategy. The Moon radiates their influence and the Sun is the spark of vitality that sustains life on earth and within us. This month brings opportunity – if you are willing to do the work and make the most of it. Luck is part chance but mostly effort applied in the right place to the right ends. The change of Saturn to Sagittarius brings an invitation to make dreams solid bringing us 3 years of dedicated effort at work that we love. We will be tested to see if we are up to our task, and find that the ideal once solid isn’t as fun as when it remains a daydream. But we dream in order to make real, in order to live a different story than the one we’ve grown out of. It’s time for wishes to come true – so wish wisely!

The moon cycle begins in Libra at the new moon and Aries full moon. This month’s focus is all about finding the right balance between shared needs and individual destiny. If we attend to issues in our partnerships whether spouse, lover, business partner or closest friend we will achieve the individual freedoms we crave. If we can’t work steadily to be responsible to our others we might find some frustrations and outbursts flash to the surface by Full Moon! Ready yourself for a new beginning – prepare to leap.

New Moon – Oct. 20
First Quarter – Oct. 28
Full Moon  in Aries – Nov. 4
Last Quarter – Nov. 11

Aries

You are on FIRE beloved Aries and this month brings even more achievement, prizes and recognition your way. After a bumpy few days at the beginning of the month when Libra Moon and your Aries ways battle it out, you get to work organising things so relationships and your plans are mutually supportive. Mars with Venus is still shaking up your 6th house of health and routine making it hard to get organised, but make time for the detail work so the big plans can take flight. This month it’s all about keeping things balanced between you and your partner; your individuality is what makes you powerful, but a good partnership makes you a force to be reckoned with.

Taurus

Venus in Virgo with energetic Mars, keep bringing the focus on health, creativity and play together for you. This lunar month the focus is on the delicate balance of routine and with your desire to fulfil your ambitious dreams. You can’t achieve the massive goals you’ve got if you don’t have the plan defined – set your health goals, commit to good food, sleep and self care and by full moon you’ll be powering through any emotional blockages to self realisation that comes next month. Saturn finally leaves your partnership sector after a difficult 3 years for your 8th house of shared resources and intimacy. The steadiness and stability Taurus needs is coming, but you’re going to have to be down with sharing, yielding and working with your romantic or business partner – be wise and watch your life find a solid foundation for the years to come.

Gemini

Your ruler Mercury has a lot to say about this New Moon – your world is full of exciting opportunities that will set you up for the next little while. Virgo Mars and Venus continue to make home-life busy as you reorganise your inner life to match your increasing ambitions. This month the focus is on creativity as a means to achieve prosperity. You make inspiring new connections that help you to achieve your dreams. Just make sure those relationships are balanced and fair not just for them – but you too! Saturn is finally leaving your 6th house of health and routine and vitality will improve in the coming months.

Cancer

Your ruler appears in Libra at New Moon bringing a new phase in your relationship to home, hearth and your inner life. Venus and Mars bless your 3rd house of mind and writing – work hard on assignments, follow up leads, network and make the most of who you know to get to where you want to go. This moon cycle brings power to your career goals, keep the home life in balance and professional success is sure to come. From new moon to full moon (2 weeks) focus on creating harmony, making fair agreements and sharing of responsibilities at home so you have a strong foundation to climb to great heights in your career.

Leo

Bright Lion this moon cycle you are all about the little details that make the big ideas possible. The New Moon brings a fresh phase in your mental life – studies flow well, you’re busy with little communications and able to focus on the little steps needed to achieve your higher goals. In your chart Libra and Aries rule learning and intelligence, this month you’ll be considering higher education, professional training or coursework that will assist you in achieving your considerable sense of destiny. Venus and Mars in your second house are pushing you to refine how you manage your income so you can make the big dreams you know are yours, happen.

Virgo

Venus and Mars continue to bless you with charm, grace and vital energy. The New moon and Full moon this month bring focus to resources, shared financial commitments, debt and contribution. Don’t freak out about financial burdens before you take a good look at your actual income and the other resources available to you – energy, time, happiness. Ask yourself what worth means and find balance between economy and the purpose of material things – enjoyment, nourishment and pleasure. Jupiter brings a time of greater ease and chance to make money over the coming year – so while you are taking an honest look at cash-in, cash-out work with Jupiter’s benevolence to make this a time of greater prosperity not just wise economy. Mercury brings his clever mind to highlight little places where you can maximise what you have and turn it into even more.

Libra

The New moon is in your sign lovely Libra – it’s your personal new year – a time of renewal and rebirth. With Mercury and Jupiter making their presence known in your sign and Virgo and Mars stirring up memory, dreams and forgotten pieces of self this isn’t an entirely easy beginning to the lunar cycle – you are incredibly busy but part of your consciousness is held in the dreaming place creating a sense of imbalance. Allow your dreaming to bring the pieces into harmony and in the meantime work on reconstructing your sense of self in keeping with your newly realised goals. This lunar cycle the focus is on harmonising individual identity &  identity in relationship. If you’ve been losing yourself in worries about the beloved and self doubt fear not – just work on YOU and the other stuff comes clear at Full moon in Aries Nov 4.

Scorpio

Saturn is about to leave his heavy work to rest after 3 years of toil, effort and sorrow. But how strong you’ve become dear Scorpio! You know your depths, what you are capable of and seen the places of emptiness within you. The New Moon begins in your dreaming and unconscious sector but full moon is in Aries – ruled by you Mars, like you. Things on the work front continue to come to fruition with credit given and reward received for efforts. Social occasions abound and you’re busy with new friendships and flirtations. This month the focus is on facing the unconscious blocks to your own happiness and working through them piece by piece so you may come into your strength once again. Mercury and Jupiter in your dreaming sector help you to find the riches and benefits in facing the hidden stuff you’d rather not drag up. Make efforts this month to make peace with things from the past that may be haunting you – release them in dreaming, idle drawing and gentleness and feel it dissolve.

Sagittarius

Bright Sagittarius, Saturn approaches your sign bringing steadiness, confidence and strength after a 3 year season of doubt about who you really are. With your ruler Jupiter beginning the lunar cycle in Libra you feel a renewed sense of connection to your creativity and the other precious souls in your life.  All that seemed clouded and dampening your usual happiness is dissipating and we see you bold and smiling again – throwing your arms out to embrace us with your happy temperament and inspiring leadership. This month the focus is on your social roles and how this fulfils your creative, playful, happy self. Whatever is happening for you, throw yourself into joyous friendship, wrestle, tumble and tease your friends. Saturn leaves your career sector after 3 years of trouble making, bringing you into your strength. You will find your place dear Archer, just keep faith.

Capricorn

One foot on the earth, the other in the waters you bridge heaven and earth making sense of it all. This month the new moon brings focus on career and Jupiter’s year long transit of Libra brings incredible opportunity. Finally you see reward for your hard work and ethical conduct. Selling out is not an option for the honest Capricorn, but you have no illusions about the importance of getting paid. Aren’t you glad you held out and were honest to yourself? Keep consolidating your gains this month and the year ahead, make the most of Jupiter’s influence. The Full Moon illuminates issues at home, so working towards balance between hearth and career is recommended. After all, the reason you’re working so damn hard is for those who depend on you. Plan time with family and give yourself a moment to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Aquarius

Oh visionary Aqua the new Moon in Libra brings itchy feet and an impatience to explore the higher questions of life – travel, religious contemplation or study of higher things pulls on you. Jupiter began to whisper this to you when he entered Libra mid September, but this lunar month brings it to your consciousness. Unavoidable truths can be uncomfortable but they bring awakening. Resist the urge to pack your bag and disappear into the wilderness – instead use what you’ve discovered to find higher truth and purpose in your experience. Not one much given to confrontation this month you’ll be pushed to say what you mean and what you want in intimate relationships and with siblings/peers. That’s why knowing what you value is so important, you know what to let go and what must be spoken to.

Pisces

This lunar month the focus is on true intimacy and your psychological complexities. It’s time to reveal your vulnerability to yourself so that you can truly connect with your beloved. Perhaps you’ve been allowing the boundaries to dissolve, losing yourself in the beloved or dream of romance rather than being an equal participant in accountability, effort and presence. This is part of your magic, Pisces, the way you flow and meld with others but pulling in your edges won’t leave you alone with your hidden self. Instead, you will find heat and strength returning to your bones and joy aflame in your heart as your beloved ones see you clearly, perhaps for the first time. The Full Moon brings confidence in your own values and a determination to claim your life for yourself. The brooding at the beginning of the lunar cycle gives way as the moon grows brighter. This is a time of self-reclamation.

 

 

Saturn in Sagittarius – Are you the Hero for this Quest?

Saturn is about to move from Scorpio to Sagittarius – in a week’s time we move forward from almost 3 years of getting real about our emotional and psychological depths. It’s been a difficult but fruitful transit, the Scorpio and Saturn combination gave us no quarter – emotional and psychological depths were tested, stuff dragged up from the deep and made real so we could either accept it or get to work transforming it. Saturn moving into Sagittarius takes the pressure of the inner depths and pushes us to get on our way and fulfil our Quest. It’s easy to dream and wait for the day when you can FINALLY get to doing what you’ve dreamed of. Saturn in Sagittarius kicks you to get moving, to make your way if there isn’t one and to prove that you have what it takes to succeed.

Saturn teaches us about reality – limits, resources, what’s possible. His influence can feel heavy and limiting. Poor Saturn is often hated for his doubting, critical way – but he is so helpful! He stops us from getting lost in daydreams or weak excuses. He exerts pressure upon us so that we go from coal to diamonds. Saturn requires us to be honest and work steadily, he restrains our passions and impulses so that we can fulfil our potential and our duties to others.

Saturn in Sagittarius shifts focus from the inner, personal truth to how we connect that with our highest ideals. The searing emotional accounting Saturn in Scorpio did since Nov 2014 to October 2017 is over (yayy!) BUT now Saturn will make us PROVE what we claim to believe. He’ll test those ideas by making them become real – this means we’ll see how flimsy or substantial our highest ideas are and where we need to get to work. Saturn in Sagittarius tests us to be really honest that aim for in our life is worth pursuing. And if Saturn’s reality checking shows that, yes – your goal is noble, useful and worthwhile then he’ll turn to you and test that you  are up to the task. You’ll feel the shift most once the Serpent period also active right now is over (all planets between the lunar nodes) but we begin to touch the new, warm, expansive feeling from November.

Over all this is a much brighter time – Saturn is a task master but Sagittarius has a beautiful, joyous and expansive influence. Somehow we will find the middle ground between our ideals and what is possible.

Saturn is in gandanta between Scorpio and Sagittarius until November 8. Have you ever seen the moment the tide changes? The churning neither back not forward of the waters? This is how we feel right now – we can feel the power of Saturn in Sagittarius coming, but we aren’t quite there yet. Saturn in Scorpio still can bite a little – but the accounting is wrapping up. Get your head straight – make sure you don’t carry the habit of emotional lack, psychological difficulty or heaviness of heart with you into this new 3 year period. Consciously acknowledge the difficult territory you have covered and get ready to enter a new land.

Saturn is in Sagittarius from October 26, 2017 til January 24, 2020

Serpent Wisdom: Transformation Astrology

WEEKEND ASTROLOGY UPDATE: Feeling that shifting, shivering, changing feeling? We are in Serpent Period with all planets between the head and tail of the snake – Rahu and Ketu or the eclipse points. This is a time of churning, chaotic, unsteadiness AND CHANGE! Good change! It is also an exciting time, Serpents are always connected to hidden riches, secret wisdom and powerful magics. Mercury is in his own sign and exalted from September 25. We experience a steadier, wiser mode of communication after the Merc Leo transit which included a retrograde, lots of hot words and overactive mental life! Virgo is about wise economy, care and considered action. The planting of seeds for a future harvest. Mercury in Virgo helps us understand the best strategies to achieve our goals. The Sun and Mercury both in Virgo steady the heat from Leo Venus and Mars. Relationships are passionate, sparks might fly from conflict as much as romance so keep checking in with your ‘best plan’ (that lovely Virgo energy) and use the heat to drive towards your creative and material world goals. Solutions arise to knots and frustrations as Moon transits out of the Serpent aspect (Kaal Sarp yog) Oct 2. The Full Moon is in full effect from Moon rise at sunset October 5. The Pisces Full Moon brings wisdom, clarity and grace. In Uttara Bhadrapada star, of Pisces constellation, the Full Moon separates us from some undesireable influences and brings riches and scintillating beauty. One of the mysteries connected to Uttara Bhadra is the ‘snake net’. Following the stories represented by the current planets and their positions this Full Moon will help us gather the wealth and rewards from recent upheavals – riches we may not even realised were possible to recoup from recent troubles. For now, work at restoring order after the big Leo month just past, with all the eclipses and other big planetary changes (retrogrades, sign changes uff so much!). Saturn is finishing up his work in Scorpio and readying to leap across the knot between Scorpio and Sagittarius bringing a wonderful shift in gears towards a new karmic experience, from Oct 2017 to 2020. Give thanks for the lessons since Nov 2014 Saturn in Scorpio and the strength you’ve discovered. Allow the churning influence of the Serpent aspect which will operate every fortnight until January to slough off old scales and dive deep to retrieve those riches wrought from your deep soulwork.

Aquarius Full Moon: Highest Hopes

Hello star lovers! It’s Aquarius Full Moon day and things are bright, sparkling, buzzy and a little out of left field. My internet is down! Assignments are due! Aquarius Moon energy is wild and makes me want to dance across the universe thinking about the BIG PLANS and less about the how-to-get-there. Mercury is finally direct gaining speed from his stationary motion bringing those insights, a-ha! moments, those messages you’ve been waiting on and clearing up communication issues. He won’t be out of the retro zone for a few weeks yet so time to synthesise and sort through all that reflection – and carry any jewels you discovered forwards.  With Mars joining him in his progress through the sign of Leo there’s high mental energy, potential for verbal agitation and fightin’ words.

Focus on where you can respond to what’s happening in the world – focus on your world and community and act with goodness, integrity and a warm heart. Combined with the Full moon buzz you might not be getting much sleep. Mercury and Mars cross over the eclipse point from Aug 22 (refresh your memory here) triggering action on the understanding and words following those eclipse and Mercury retro revelations. We really got a chance to stop, look over our lives and destiny and work out where to from here. I don’t know about you but my life has taken a sharp left hand turn since the first hummings of revelations at the Lunar eclipse last full moon. It’s been a whole lunar cycle since then – can you recognise yourself? Sort of? Exciting times.

Saturn is moving forward steadily now and will cross out of Scorpio into beloved Sagittarius from Oct 22 bringing lighter vibes generally but we won’t really get the best effect until he leaves the Mula constellation and is deeper into the sign – early in 2018 Jupiter is in good aspect right now and for the next few weeks as he crosses between Virgo and Libra he shines benevolently on us all – let’s hope wisdom pervades in our personal and greater worlds; that new alliances arise out of all this change and upheaval.

Jupiter’s work in Virgo during 2017 taught us – kindly, wisely, – how to take care of routines. To see the little details as a sacred and worthwhile endeavour in their own end. No one likes duty – we all prefer ice-cream, netflix and someone else to do the dishes – but this transit helped us understand the sacredness in duty and hopefully we can keep working on that lesson even after he leaves Virgo. Admittedly, it’s taken some of the buzz and pop out of Jupiter’s usual joyous influence (in Mid 2015 to mid 2016 Jupiter was in Leo, the energy was big, grand and dramatic!) but the quiet virtue of Virgo taught us a lot about wise economy – money, body, energy – and helped some of us finally deal with health attitudes that needed structural change at the daily level. (Obviously this is me.)

Tonight’s Full Moon  is in noble Aquarius, in the star of Purva Bhadrapada. A star of righteous clarity and impossible magic that somehow, is possible (the stars of Purva Bhadra are in the pegasi constellation). In European tradition the Pegasus is connected to the mysteries of the deep waters, flight and magical journeying. The Purva Bhadra mysteries and the symbolism of Aquarius / Kumbha connect with these principles of sparkling intelligence, pure inspiration, movement, clarity, succour and justice.

Even if you are unsure where-to-from-here, tonight salute the beautiful moon and call forth your own inner fire. Invite your guiding intelligence to sparkle brightly,  make itself known so that you may carry the water of your unique destiny to quench injustice, sorrow and heartache in the world. Face the realities but rejoice and determine to raise the vibes – that was then, this is now – take your self-discoveries and time to see what you can do with them.

Aries / Mesha
The full moon is in your 11th house of pals and social approval  – begin to reap the benefits of your efforts to push your career forward, socialise and reconnect with friends from a fresh place of insight and how those relationships fit in with your revised self view. Mercury is now direct in your 5th house of romance and play – expect issues with your love interest to clear up so you can get on with the best parts of romance – being dramatic and expressing your feelings.

You are extra all this month. But that’s why we love you.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead

Taurus / Vrishabha
Your ruler Venus is in your 3rd house helping you to understand the best thing for you isn’t always what you enjoy the most. Mars and Mercury direct in your 4th house of home leave you agitated by the hearth fire but ready to strike new beginnings in how you run your home and spend your time there. Make plenty of time to get out and release agitating, stuck energy  – don’t keep it buzzing away in your lounge-room. Saturn is still in the 7th house of relationships but he is leaving soon – alleviating the tension between you and your significant others you’ve been experiencing since Nov 2014. The Full Moon glows bright in your 10th house of vocation and career – time to write the “new plan” down and believe it whole heartedly. Then align your actions with this guiding light and begin to move forward. Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Gemini / Mithuna
Mercury is your ruler and his retrograde is quite uncomfy for the sparkling Gemini. Now he is direct and running about with Lord Mars in Leo too you can expect things to get going – fast! Which is just how you like it. All this energy in the house of thinking and ideas makes you work a mile-a-minute so take care not to burn out. Get the creativity out and commit to putting a solid action plan in place once the big buzz dies down a little. Don’t let all this new vitality spark and dissipate, put it to work for maximum reward. The Full Moon is in the beautiful 9th house of Personal Quest and “the big vision” – you experience an “a-ha!” moment as the image of what you’re meant to be doing and why all comes together. Enjoy this time of frenzied activity and high feeling as you emerge into a new phase in your life – be courageous and leap across the threshold beautiful things await.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Cancer / Karka
Venus blesses you as she transits your own sign however she has made tears ever-ready and increased your usual sentimentality to an almost painful level. Try to enjoy the sweetness and stay clear of the bitter-sweet, don’t dwell – float on the surface of your deep feeling and enjoy the shift and ebb of the tide. Keep it light, and let the Full Moon in your 8th house reveal what it is causing all that “not enough” feeling in your romances/close relationships. What do you really need and how can you ask for that? How can you share this burden, invite love in? In more practical terms Mercury now direct in your 2nd house along with Mars brings some relief to straightened cash situation, however Mars can tend to spend as soon as you make it – so keep that in mind and try to economise on the extras as you catch up on outstanding bills.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Leo / Simha
You dear Leo are the centre of it all, as you know and the Mercury direct, Mars in Leo – the past Leo New moon eclipse and the Full moon Aquarius vibes are hitting you head on. With Mercury direct your head comes out of the muddle it’s been in for almost a month. Mars lifts your spirit and gives you improved energy too. The big identity crisis wrought by the New Moon eclipse 2 weeks ago clears to reveal the shining path ahead. The Full Moon in your 7th house of committed relationships brings focus to your partner or what you’d like to do with that whole area of your life. You begin to see how relating needs to change now that you’ve gotten some new perspectives during the Merc retro. Enjoy this time of you-and-I and for solo Lions who would like to be paired up – a good time to get insight on not just what you need but what you can bring to a future partner.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Virgo / Kanya
Jupiter dallies in the last degrees of your sign where he has blessed and expanded your life in lots of little ways for about 12 months. As he moves into the 2nd house of income and resources you can expect a little boost there too – a reward for all the sensible reconsideration of your direction in life you undertook this year. The Full Moon sparkles brightly in your 6th house of health and healing. You look good on the job and are enjoying your time there too. Mercury, your ruler, is now direct and as he moves through your 12th house of unconscious and renunciation it’s time to let go of self-defeating thinking, fears and habits of anxiety that have nothing to do with you at all. Mars brings you the courage and vigour to move forward from here – take his assistance and move past those feelings into a state of peaceful clarity.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Libra / Thula
Venus rules your sign and she’s still floating through your 10th house of vocation and reputation. You are arriving at a place of greater harmony with all the stuff you believe and have been doing with your life up until this point. All the work you’ve ever done is synthesising into an image of your calling in the world. Saturn’s restrictions in your 2nd house of income have meant you can’t distract yourself with lovely things so you had to discover how to create the harmony and balance in other ways. This has been hard work but, productive. It can take you a long time to make your mind up. Once you do – it is a fait accompli.  The Full Moon brings creative vibes and romance to your 5th house of love and fun. Mercury direct clears his head and gets to work with Mars in your 11th house of friendships and brings rewards from your efforts in your career you kicked off at the last full moon.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Scorpio / Vrischik
Deep transforming Scorpio, Saturn the Restrictor is leaving your sign and you can expect life to soften substantially from Oct 22 as he enters Sagittarius. He may restrict your income a little but he isn’t restricting your energy generally. This Full moon invites you to clear your head of limited perspectives about yourself and doubts that undermine your profound abilities. Mercury direct and Mars, your ruler, are aligned in Leo  in your 10th house of career and reputation. Make a go of it – now is a powerful time to climb to new heights and make a name for yourself in your work. Throw yourself into the efforts ahead of you and reap recognition you deserve further down the line. The Full moon in your 4th house of home and roots presents you with an opportunity to enjoy your home life, pleasant times with your mother/mother’s family and happiness at the hearth fire.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Sagittarius / Dhanus
Joyous Sagittarius sails through most things unscathed and because the eclipses aspected your sign reasonably well you will have been experiencing the positive side of the transits (unless personal planets were afflicted). You are good at “new”, you delight in discovery. The issue for you is keeping at something before getting onto the next exciting thing. With Mercury direct aligned with Mars in your 9th house of the Quest, journeying and the big picture – you can rest assured you are still on track. Let the Merc retro musings find their place, recalibrate – and then get back into the adventure. Your ruler Jupiter leaves Virgo for Leo on September 12. For the next year there will be a shift in focus from 10th house of career and “what am I doing with my life” to “I am glad I am doing this, look how much fun I am having and all the great people I am connecting to along the way” – the 11th house. Full moon glows in your 3rd house of communication and ideas – your mindset brightens and you think laterally about how to solve the challenges you are facing.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Capricorn / Makara
The last Full Moon was in your sign heralded a complete revision of what you are doing with your life. Add 2 eclipses into the mix and a Mercury retrograde and we have a whole other you before us at this full moon. With your ruler Saturn readying to move after 2.5 years in Scorpio this is necessary, and wise, shift in perspective. The Full moon glows in your 2nd house of resources and income illuminating what is your basic level of need to achieve your revised ambitions provoked by last month’s big changes. Venus opposes your sign, in Cancer, sweetening your relationship and drawing you deeper into love. Mars and Mercury direct in your 8th house of intimacy and debt help you understand what you need to share and what you are willing to give to your beloved, and what you need to leave behind from your past to be you – right now – in all your potential.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Aquarius / Kumbha
This Full moon is in your sign and you receive illumination about your self-concept. Aquarians are attuned to a different rhythm and bring their wisdom to the cause of all – truly individual but devoted to the common good – this Full moon invites you to engage deeply with your personal destiny. Mars and Mercury direct oppose the Full moon and move through your 7th house of partnerships and relationships. Clear insight, dissatisfaction with where the boundaries lie and potential conflict that arises from these insights can overshadow the recent progress in your significant relationships. Ketu has now left Aquarius bringing his liberating power to your unconscious mind and turning your mind to the deeper spiritual dimensions of your life. With the Full Moon in Aquarius you are invited to see what remains about who you thought you were and then breathe new life into your identity and appearance in the world.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Pisces / Meena
The Full Moon illuminates your 12th house of unconscious and dreaming attuning you to the deepest current of your being and bringing quiet understanding. Your vivid dreams speak in symbol and story to the greater mythos of your life. Mars and Mercury direct in your 6th house of health and healing bring recovery and resilience to your health but can agitate on your day-job. Speak clearly and with energy if needed, but take care not to burn the supports that sustain this part of your life – the unconscious is more active than usual and issues unrelated to conflicts at work may find their way out where it doesn’t belong. Jupiter your ruler is leaving your 7th house of partnerships taking the focus from you-and-them to the intimate aspect of the relationship, shared resources and the private sphere of life. Venus aspects your sign bringing grace and feeling to your 5th house of romance and creativity making this full moon cycle a dreamy time laden with emotive experiences.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead

Saturn Direct : Farewell Scorpio it’s been real

Saturn is direct again and at the end of his 3 year Scorpio transit!

Cry in relief folks, for most of us it has been brutal. Thanks for the lessons Lord Saturn, but happy to move forward now. I am definitely a lot tougher than at the beginning of this cycle but ooh, ouch – oof! Weren’t those lessons so hard? Since Nov 2014 it’s been a ride through the deep depths of our karma. We’ve experienced transformation as we dealt with the consequences of actions (made by us or enacted upon us). Anywhere we have been less than utterly real, honest and truthful about ourselves was ripped into clarity –  pushed against limits to see whether we would break or break through.

Saturn in Scorpio brings out our gifts but only through immense difficulty. He strips away everything that is no longer in keeping with our destiny so that we may continue. Saturn has 7 veils of darkness (our illusions) as the Sun has 7 radiations of illumination. We all prefer the illumination because it is beautiful, ecstatic, lovely. But the illumination dissipates if we have not worked Saturn’s path too. Saturn’s unveiling reveals the inner light and beauty  – surprising and lovely – in his own way.  He prepares the ground for us to grow.

Who likes limitations? None of us. And that is why Saturn comes to SCHOOL us so we can actually achieve our destiny, because we prefer comfort to growth. Ease, to discipline, we are material sensuous creatures (mmm) but this can create problems, we avoid suffering and thus do not grow. Saturn gives us the law of reality, he teaches us the importance of structure, routine and duty.

Saturn is the least favourite of the planets because he makes things real. Lord of Restriction, creator of Inertia and karmic accountant. He exposes our ‘LACK’ – our incapacities, our limits. He shows the reality of our capacities and the work needed to improve ourselves and actually achieve the dreams he seems to destroy.

Accept this truth, painful as it is, we become capable, responsible and enduring. What seems destruction of our ‘hopes and dreams’ equips us to become creators within our destinies.  He doesn’t punish or cause strife for no reason; he shows up where we haven’t covered all the bases or not been honest with ourselves.

Saturn’s transit through Scorpio was, frankly, brutal. Especially for those born with Saturn in Scorpio or Moon signs of Scorpio (sade sati), Taurus (oppositions with partners) or Aries (ashtamsha). His lessons are HARD. He retrogrades thrice during his 3-ish year transit of each zodiac sign. He takes us over, and over again, the lessons we need to learn.

Now, after 6 months retrograde Saturn is in direct motion again, turning direct late last night. He is a slow planet so we don’t feel the effect for a few more days – but it is time to get moving on working within the structures you’ve had to shore up since March. You will begin to make ground with frustrated efforts, Saturn supporting actions of diligence, discipline and endurance.

Because we’re at the very last stretch of the Saturn in Scorpio transit it’s time to synthesis the lessons and move the heck on. DO NOT STAY in those murky waters. Look ahead, keep building, move more steadily and use any difficult experiences as tools to overcome future challenges. Saturn will move into joyous Sagittarius from Oct 22, taking us back into that ground we began to cover in January 2017. It’s time to get to work – and the tides are with us. Expect a few more bumps from this karma since Nov 2014 as we approach the end of it, and especially as Saturn moves slowly on the knot between Scorpio and Sagittarius. This knot or gandanta triggers a shift in gears in our work with Saturn’s energy – limits, restrictions, responsibility.  Full steam ahead, steady as she goes – we won’t be back in Scorpio for another 28 years.

The Saturn in Sagittarius transit will help us make our ideals real, get hard to work on higher study and assist writers/philosophers and academics to bring Saturnian wisdom, structure and order to the ideal and intangible.

horoscopes

Read by moon sign for the development of the soul/emotional effect, Sun sign for life direction/structure, Ascendant sign for your persona. These are SIDEREAL/VEDIC horoscopes.* 

Aries – Saturn leaves the difficult 8th house of emotional turmoil, debt and shared karma (with spouse or significant other).  Now in direct motion, be willing to get to work on understanding this difficult period – you know what you are made of and what you are capable of enduring. Time to leave self doubt behind and seize your ambitions, driving them before you – knowing your power and vulnerabilities makes you only more formidable! From Oct 22 Saturn in Sagittarius moves to the joyous 9th house of dharma, good fortune and learning – crystallising good fortune and greater ease from your efforts. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Taurus – Saturn has antagonised your sign since Nov 2014. The 7th house is the house of conflicts, relationships, the law and contracts. A difficult time being happy with your spouse, for those who are single a desolate period of finding a spouse or partner, and difficult relations with others. The persona and public reputation received ‘evil glance’ of Saturn at this time and you had to struggle for every little gain. The direct motion of Saturn moves you out of this territory. His movement into Sagittarius, although into the afflicted 8th house, being Sagittarius, brings the chance to work off debts, and improve your standing after this tough period. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Gemini – Saturn brings improvements to your health and employment after a difficult period of making headway or having to confront parts of your well-being you neglected up until Saturn’s influence forced you to face facts about your habits and self-care. Saturn moves into your 7th house of relationships and partnerships, being Sagittarius this mitigates many of the difficult aspects Saturn can bring to relationship – making commitments more solid, showing the lack of commitment in some cases, and helping you to clarify not only what you desire, but what you need in order to have a good, respectful and stable intimacy in your life. This significant relationship isn’t just committed partnership but also influences partnerships of any kind.Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Cancer – Saturn moves forward in your 5th house of romance, children and flirtation. A long period of romantic conflict and dissatisfaction is coming to a close for you. Saturn kept  bringing you back to earth everytime your heart tried to soar, this misery-guts influence while helpful in tempering your expectations of romantic fulfilment also helped you to see what really is of value in these relationships. If you’d put your needs/ambitions aside for love, Saturn called you on it. As Saturn moves forward into Sagittarius in late October he brings his accounting eye to your routines, healthcare and day-job helping you to finish tasks and cautioning you not to wriggle out of responsibility! If you work with him, he will help you reap many rewards. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Leo – Sunshiny Leo you’ve had an eclipse right over your sign and are mid Merc retro. Saturn turns direct  after 3 years in the 4th house of home, hearth and the Mother image. This has been a time of both solidifying your connection to roots, making a home for yourself and connection to place – but in coming home, close to the root of things, any lack, sorrow and the real responsibilities of settling in anyway have also shown up sharp and clear. Saturn moves forward into your friendly sign of Sagittarius from Oct 22 bringing solidity to your creative ideas, flirtations and romantic life. You may begin to impose order on all the things you ‘love’ – and you’ll learn both the values and the limits to that during this 3 year transit. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Virgo is ever the friend to Saturn, he is finishing up his work in your 3rd house of mind, communication and day-to-day action where he’s helped you make some of your ideas reality, but also brought an influence of mental solitude and hesitancy to really speak your mind. Not that you are prone to that dear Virgo – but he may have made you more black-and-white in your thinking during this time. Moving into your 4th house of home, hearth and mother, Saturn helps you feel more solid in relation to your family, fix your residence and encourage you to put some work in on establishing a solid foundation financially. With these steadying developments come necessary restrictions, but willing to economise as Virgo is, this is over all a productive period. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Libra and Saturn work well together, Saturn is exalted in your sign. The Libran love of harmony harmonises with the Saturnian love of order. Saturn leaves your finances and speech sector – after 3 years of very limited funds and big expenses – you can expect the transit into your 3rd house of mind, writing and intellect to help you rebuild after this difficult economic period. While Saturn remains in Scorpio make sure you establish long lasting habits of managing cash flow so you can make the most of those hard knock lessons you’ve had since Nov 2014. Saturn in Sagittarius brings steadier thinking and mental clarity – time to make a plan out and onward from Oct 22. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Scorpio – Saturn has been transiting your own sign since Nov 2014 – this has been a difficult and critical period for you as you were forced to get real and restructure your reality, down to the bed rock of your psyche, in order to understand who you really are and how you are projecting that image onto the world. Saturn also brought progress on the career front, a good time to make a name for yourself. But the searing self insight is hard to deal with! Saturn will move forward into your 2nd house of resources, money and speech from Oct 22, take care to order your finances but go steady – don’t stress – the work you do now will establish a sound basis of economy and management in the years ahead. Economise now, invest in education/higher learning if relevant, and keep your eye on the long-term goals. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Sagittarius – Saturn has been in the 12th house of your unconscious, secrets and longings. This is a difficult transit but also a spiritually productive time. By crystallising and bringing to the surface hopes, dreams and fears Saturn has helped you to understand the unconscious forces that drive your conscious actions. In knowing this, you know better how to act so you achieve goals and establish your reputation in life. From Oct 22 now transiting your ascendant/1st house, you will restructure your identity and how you project yourself upon the outer world. In knowing your unconscious you have come to know more about yourself, and now it’s time to restructure. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Capricorn – your ruling planet is Saturn so his transits don’t cause you the same conflicts they do most other sign. You are not in denial of the importance of discipline, responsibility and duty. Saturn in Scorpio has been limiting your social interactions and friendships since Nov 14, making you dissatisfied with people who aren’t ‘serious’ enough about the important things. You have received benefits from your career efforts but not necessarily in terms of cash rewards. However, being a Capricorn you can take the long view and see the value of what you have achieved. As Saturn moves into your 12th house get ready to explore the deepest parts of yourself and understand what really motivates your actions, allow yourself to be honest with yourself about your hopes and dreams. They don’t have to be ‘practical’ just listen to this inner voice and discover greater depths in you than you dreamed of. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Aquarius – strange but also strangely pragmatic the Aquarian is also ruled by Saturn. You experience Saturn’s influence as an imperative to find the greatest common good and social responsibility/justice. Saturn has been transiting your 10th house of career, vocation and reputation. Any gains have been made through difficult emotional effort, you were asked to sacrifice much to achieve your goals. You have been hard headed and tenacious and the result wasn’t always fair but you got greater insight into your ideals vs. the ethics (or lack of) of the outer world. From Oct 22 Saturn moves into your 11th house of gains, social groups and friendship you will find around you those who are as committed as you are, you will find people who share your ethics and ideas. Good results from the challenges in your career you faced since Nov 2014 will find you.Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Pisces – Saturn has been in another watery sign, Scorpio, since Nov 2014 – transiting your 9th house of spiritual ideals and higher learning, you have been undergoing a review of what you really believe and whether that is really, real and what is reality anyway etc. It can be a time of religious doubt, a dark night of the soul, but the direct motion of Saturn and transit to the 10th house of career, vocation and reputation helps you to make use of what you struggled over for 3 years and change careers, commitments or perspectives on what you are really called to do in your life. How you will then put these crystalised ideals into action will play out during Saturn’s transit in Sagittarius from Oct 22 until 2020.  Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit

Astrology and the Sacredness of Time

Full Moon

You might have noticed that my astrology interpretations might say “New Moon in Leo” when you’ve been reading “New Moon in Virgo” elsewhere. Why is that? I’ve been publishing articles reading from the sidereal zodiac, as employed by Vedic astrologers, since the beginning of 2016. I want to be able to look at the sky at night and see the planets in the constellations they are in, right now. Not a theoretical calculation. Read on… Continue reading

Ace of Cups – Overflow My Heart

 

ace of cups.png

Venus in Libra and Full Moon in Pisces mid-week brings gentle, heart opening vibes after a bumpy week just passed – full of tension generated by Ketu, Mars and Saturn. Begin clearing, refocusing and that heartening ready to fill up like the Ace of Cups, Ace of Hearts. The Holy Grail, The Cauldron of Love and Life before our Full moon in Pisces, September 25.

When the Ace of Cups arises we exhale, relax and surrender to the sweet waters. We trust, having faith in the beautiful mystery of life; that we are here at all, and the miracle of love, kindness and beauty that life is. She appears and we know, love is coming – love even greater than the sweet dizziness of romance – connection to the Source. The Chalices are the suit of hope, faith and love. Drink deeply first, let yourself fill up, so that when you see other worthy souls, parched and dried by the travails of existence, you can raise love to their lips and heal them too. Remember, those who love, devotedly, to nourish yourself so you may nourish others. Do not waste the holy water washing the feet of the careless, cruel or fickle. This magic is our responsibility as much as a gift. As you drink from the waters of life, pray. Pray that your heart will expand to hold more, pray that you can stay connected to the flowing source, pray that you will give it wisely.

 

2018 Hiatus

Panacea_by_mlpeters.jpg

Panacea by M. L. Peters

2018 Hiatus

Dear Wild Ones, I am on hiatus for 2018 to focus on other other creative & writing projects. This means I will not be hosting workshops or providing consultations during 2018 as I had planned. For those who have been working in the Wild Tarot salon I will hold an intensive sometime in either January or February to bring to completion the first path of your tarot training. Of course – if you booked a gift reading or have a confirmed appointment with date and time already arranged I will honour my commitment to you and provide the usual deep, wild and soulful creative session using either tarot or astrology. For those who have not confirmed a time I am afraid I cannot finalise your booking in 2018. I can provide you alternative practitioners you may like to connect with.

As some of you know in 2015 I acquired a neurological condition due to a bad fever, unfortunately this month I’ve had another fever and pneumonia-lite. I am recovering well – don’t worry! –  but I went into the Wild, I listened.  I have decided it is time I laid down this work at the door of change, for now, so I can transform once again.
True healing can only take place if I contain my vitality and direct it towards strengthening my body. This spiritual silence is an old tradition – and a part of the brewing of new creative work. I haven’t really been able to make time for this until 2018.

I created the Existential Astrologer from a basic WordPress blog in 2013. I have been reading now for 14 years but the Existential Astrologer was where I really found my voice to share my ideas about the nature of the deep magic in tarot, astrology and ritual. So many of you shared your wisdom, stories, experiences & triumphs. I learned as much as I shared, it was truly a deepening, wisening, tempering experience. To say I am grateful is completely insufficient to how I feel to those who came for a ‘reading’ and worked as active participant in the story of their life – to stand at the crossroads, reflect, surrender fear, consider hope and move forward.

The place of dreaming, of the a-rational, the non-empirical which greets us each night in our sleep, returns through story.  This is the place of magic, and we must keep it vivid and alive as a defense against religious insanity, coercion, political tyranny or the thinning out of our Wild beauty. There are many people and ways your magic can be stolen from you. Be fierce and guard your holy self from those who would try to steal your sacred fire.

This work – tarot, astrology, mythic mysticism – has been with me for most of my adult life. The people that taught me shared traditions that are not held fast in books but passed from one to another – over long teas, shared tears, artistic vision. Dreaming, musing, seeing into the Wild of Nature & human nature, was the major part of those teachings. It was never about prediction, determining someone’s fate or proving ‘psychic’ or occult powers. This fosters the poison of superstitious fear and sucks the vitality, the magic of the individual targeted. Beware of anyone who claims to know more than you do in this way – listen to your deep instinct, never permit anyone to convince you to part with your power. The stories my teachers gave me, their guidance carried me through the worst times of my life and gave me power to endure and triumph that was real & potent. Stories show the path of escape or the path to joy, or teach us what we need to know in a given situation, they have medicine for all ills of the heart, psyche and soul. These traditions are within you and the keeper of the stories, as tarot reader or astrologer, just gives you space to remember and find the answers.

Myth & magick should never seek to rule reason. These 2 principles are not opposed but are in dynamic symbiosis, the imagination inspires the empirical search. The dream guides the hand to grasp the needle in the haystack, but it is not concerned with the action itself. It is the knowing that leads to useful understanding mediated by logic and empiricism.

Keep the magic, keep the wild, keep the songs. And continue to work, to explore with reason, evidence and clear logic to find solutions to the grave crises in health, ecosystem and social ills that threaten the Holy Wild in nature and in us.  

The making of symbols, the living art of storytelling and ritual, the sharing of old myth cycles and ways of making sense of our experiences – this is how we keep our World Alive. You all carry your own stories. I know this, for I have heard your incredible adventures and have seen your heroic courage. I have heard you sing back grandmother’s words or stories from your people, and make whole the little rifts in your own experience. Some of you were seeking home, some of you transformation. Some learned how to be warriors, others to be soft again. I too, did all these things.

I am not sure what will come of this work, or when. But I know it is time – time to lay this work to rest deep in the Earth and see what grows from it.

Thank you and much love and gratitude, for reading, sharing and meeting with me,

Love and blessings, Asha – The Existential Astrologer

The Serpent & Transformation: Scorpio New Moon

Scorpio New Moon appears Saturday and is followed by the yummy Full Moon in Taurus Dec 4, in 2 weeks. It’s a month of emergence, into the new vision of you. The New moon brings the awareness that the longed for change has already happened, you’re there – no going back now! There’s no more soul searching to do before you can move, the transformation is happening. The story for this new moon is that change is the only constant. If you find yourself at sea after this huge year, laugh at the chaos and trust that this is as close to stability as it gets. Turns out you are not big enough to fight the natural state of the universe and besides you’d be bored if it stopped challenging you…so let’s go! by full moon the Taurus moon vibes bring goodness, comfort and solidity. This isn’t going to be as tough as it might feel right now, and many planets are supporting us to find the best path within the current confusion.

Venus and Jupiter are still creating conflicting desires in lovely Libra. Venus wants what is lovely, Jupiter wants what is good. Venus says – material attachments are important in the process of incarnation and self realisation, allow yourself to experience loveliness and create beauty. Jupiter says,  you must work at what is noblest, highest and most dutiful. While Jupiter and Venus are aligned in Libra we have a chance to do well materially and spiritually, if we resist the urge to oppose these ideas (no either/or, make them work together).

Saturn in Sagittarius is now one degree into the sign bringing an opening of horizons/ Keep working at making your highest values meet material reality. Your goal is noble, useful and worthwhile so PLEASE GET TO IT. It’s time to begin, and the Scorpio energy of the new moon cycle will help you eliminate the unnecessary.

Make magic by committing to the first substantial step of your 2018 plans before the Taurus Full Moon.

Aries

The Last moon cycle was BIG for you. Relationship issues required your attention, readjustment and consideration – Venus AND Jupiter in Libra in your relationship sector have been making things a bit much, try and steady things by enjoying the high feeling but not er…making it worse! Keep building on recent success and don’t let yourself get distracted by doubt – reality checks aren’t out to get you – they ensure your dreams come to exist. You may have to sacrifice the more exciting parts of your vision, try and remember although you are in charge of a lot in your life, you are not in charge of basic natural laws, and that’s fine! You are still a champion and a leader. To make magic this month focus on shared resources at the New Moon – reduce debts, manage expenses and find common ground with those you share your life with. The Full Moon in Taurus illuminates your 2nd house of income and resources – consolidate your gains and take time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Taurus

This is your month! The Full Moon will be in your sign, but first the New Moon appears in your 7th house of partnerships. Look at those who truly ‘get you’ and make your alliances and efforts in relationship to those most precious relationships. Find strength in your partnerships and be willing to begin anew. The Full Moon in your own sign in 2 weeks will bring all the effort of your inner work to fulfilment. In order to truly enjoy the best about you and your life you have a few habits in relationships you need to shift, you did most of the work last month, now it’s time to tidy up and become truly satisfied with who you are. Your health is improving and your general happiness too – keep working steadily at improving these routines. Venus brings you better emotional well-being before she joins the Sun in Scorpio later in November to bless your relationships.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Gemini

It’s time to focus on getting your health routines and daily life reorganised – the next 3 years are bringing big changes for you Gemini and it’s time to eliminate bad habits that weaken your happiness. Scorpio created blockage here for 3 years, now he’s gone you feel you can dance, move and be with your physical self again. Your ruler Mercury has been whispering encouragement about reorganising your life for the last few weeks and in a few days he skips into your 7th house of partnerships helping you create new ideas and plans in that realm of life. Mercury will also be spinning new ideas and visions for the Saturn transit of Sagittarius – you are building something substantial for yourself, but first you need to look at unconscious habits creating obstacles to your happiness. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Cancer

Rahu/North node continues to churn up your identity challenging you to step into your power. Last month the lunar cycle formed hard angles to your sign, pushing issues to crisis and bringing clarity around your place in the world and your worth. The New Moon is in Scorpio, your 5th house – a new cycle in love, flirtation and happiness. This is a month of play, parties and enjoyment and by Full Moon in 2 weeks you’ll feel a lovely comfort in your friendships and place socially. Last month was a bit bumpy sweet Crab, but this new cycle smoothes all of that down a little. A few little crises between New Moon and full moon around what the heck you are doing with your finances – don’t get distracted with worries, let the focus on the axis of fun and social life enrich you and restore your happiness.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Leo

Royal lions the New Moon is bringing up all sorts of deep, churning inner feelings – mostly behind closed doors – if you haven’t been able to look at how home life is going lately, it will all come up this month. Good thing is, you’re prepared and we can’t help but adore you – you’ll be falling in love all over again with domestic life and taking pride in your home. If you find some frustrations, resist the urge to fix everything all at once. Curl up with the rest of your pride and ask how you can make them feel comfortable and cared for. Let them know what you need to feel nurtured and at home. A warm, steady home life provides the strong foundation for career success which is the focus of the Full Moon in 2 weeks. Get the home stuff right and the other stuff works out well too. Make the outer and inner world work to support each other and you’ll be a happy little lion.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Virgo

The New Moon brings mental renewal and a clearing of the slate after 3 years of mental frustration and hard work and Mercury has only added to the hectic feeling. Even as life gets busy, your mindset is good – you are more resilient, confident and willing to advocate for your own needs. Mercury your ruler leaves this sector for your home and hearth sector in a few days time, turning your problem solving skills to little adjustments to home life that make things gentler and more lovely. The Full Moon will appear in your sector of highest ideals and long term vision – the focus this month begins on clearing the slate so there is space in your head to plan out the stuff that really matters. Keep your perspective on what matters and you’ll get it all done. This month will bring many small details into order and find you actually living in your longed for dreams.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Libra

The last moon cycle was hectic – new moon in your sign, Sun, Jupiter and Venus – and Full Moon setting off your relationships sector. BUT. You have redrawn the lines between you and your significant other/s, found new comfort in those relationships and renewed your sense of self and place in the world. Venus and Jupiter continue to irritate each other while somehow managing to also bring lots of good things to you – spiritual and material – at the same time. It’s confusing. The New Moon in Scorpio asks you to get real about how you are managing your money and place in the world and take some firm steps to attune to your Venus power to make things lovely and comfortable. The Full Moon in Taurus brings shared resources to pleasant fulfilment, the work you did on finding the limits and strengths of your relationships bears fruit later this month. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Scorpio

This new moon brings a renewal of your identity, a shivering thrill as you remerge once again, a different variation of self for the circumstances in which you find yourself. You are also being called to account for who you are – and if that idea is too flexible, too changeable, you can expect some baulking from those you are closest to. Not all dwell in the deep waters that you do and it’s important you find that balance between seeking the deepest truth and being gently reliable for your loved ones. Mercury is in your sign for a few more days, bringing reflection and necessary insight from recent frictions with friendships and social group. This lunar cycle you’ll be focusing on finding the middle ground between independence and real connection. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Sagittarius

Beloved Archer you are becoming more real, more substantial and Saturn assists you to work steadily at making your beautiful visions real. Don’t get caught in the inevitable difference between your ideal and the limits of reality, please keep sharing what you see with the rest of us, we need your vision to inspire us too. Let yourself take it easier – leisure is a creative process too. The work this month is in taking the matter from the unconscious and putting it to work. The New moon asks you to allow the unconscious and dreaming life to arise, and by Full moon you will understand how this inner life is supporting (or derailing) your daily life/health. Your ruler Jupiter has been tangling with Venus in Libra all month bringing dissatisfaction; a sense of being caught between pleasure and truth. Not all questions are moral questions, not all experiences have meaning, some things are just life stuff.   For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Capricorn

The New moon asks you to pay attention to the state of your social life and engagement with stuff outside of work/family/relationship. YES, Capricorn this is important, you can hang out with people just because it is fun. Make time in your schedule for fun, in the long run it makes you more productive. Part of being a good and socially responsible person – means you have to actually engage socially with others. You need social renewal. You need a chance to unleash your dry wit and make everyone laugh. Call your friends, drink a little too much, meet new people. By Full moon you’ll realise how much you crave more fun in your life and how much joy it gives you. Your ruler Saturn makes his first steps into your house of unconscious, dreaming, making self negating and avoidant behaviour solidify so you can kick them for good.    For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Aquarius

Dearest friend from the other end of the galaxy, it’s time to transform your attitude to work and home. You have a great destiny and you are more than capable of putting yourself forward to claim the recognition you deserve. I know you want to bring something never before seen that will simultaneously improve humanity, the environment and mess with everyone’s mind. Thing is, that’s not the task at hand. You are, for the time being, on planet Earth and need to apply your incredible insight to benefit your own standing and recognition at work. Work at your project steadily, it doesn’t have to be perfect or remarkable. Find a deeper purpose for these efforts, see how it enriches your home life. Send your roots deeper. The thing about reality is that it gives space for great ideas to take form and benefit everyone, don’t be afraid to make things steadier. Even the strongest trees still flex in the wind and float their arms upon the breeze. By Full moon you’ll have a better sense of your place in the world and how much you good you can do from that place. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Pisces

Your worldview has been shaken a little in the aftermath of last month’s full moon. Stuff came to light that you didn’t really think was an issue and it hasn’t all been lovely. Sweet mermaid, allow the tears to flow. And with courage, approach the imminent transformation. How does faith and philosophy fit into what has been happening? Go deeper, find the meaning and renew your heart. By Full Moon you remerge, mindset firm, steady and strong. Your heart may hurt but your determination is only deepened. You have work to do, last month showed that, and you have the sensitivity, intelligence and magic to make it come true. You will have what your heart wishes for, in time, do not falter. Keep the faith and see your dreams become real.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here

Fire Moon – Warrior Moon

We spark and glow with new promise as the moon becomes Full in Aries tonight. This Moon is also called Kartik Poornima, the Full Moon of the Warrior Kartikeya. We emerge clad in armour for battle or expeditions, resounding with the joy of adventure or the battle cry – exhausted perhaps but triumphant. This moon cycle is all about balancing out the relationships that define our life – and standing strong, proud and victorious in who we are. We’ve fought to get here, we survived Saturn in Scorpio and we’re into new territory. Have you felt the change? The sense of new experience opening before you?

Venus in her own Kingdom Libra brings beauty and balance to our love affairs. The gentle work of Venus in Virgo brings sweet rewards all month. Venus is at her greatest power in Libra and opposing full moon in Aries she keeps the focus on lovely social events, sweet connection with dear ones and a sense of calm and peace in our relationships. Mars is still working hard in Virgo for a few more weeks. Mars helps us bring focus to what we must get done. He directs us to work with focus and steady application.

Saturn in Sagittarius shifts focus from the inner, personal truth to how we connect that with our highest ideals. The searing emotional accounting Saturn in Scorpio did since Nov 2014 to October 2017 is over (yayy!) BUT now Saturn will make us PROVE what we claim to believe. He’ll test those ideas by making them become real – this means we’ll see how flimsy or substantial our highest ideas are and where we need to get to work. Saturn in Sagittarius tests us to be really honest that aim for in our life is worth pursuing. And if Saturn’s reality checking shows that, yes – your goal is noble, useful and worthwhile then he’ll turn to you and test that you  are up to the task. You’ll feel the shift most once the Serpent period also active right now is over (all planets between the lunar nodes) but we begin to touch the new, warm, expansive feeling from mid November. Over all this is a much brighter time.

The Full Moon in Aries brings a boost to your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources. Sometimes sharing power makes more space for creativity and prosperity. Aries brash boldness gives you the courage to do just that – he who hesitates is lost, and besides, being willing to give something a go isn’t the same thing as gambling everything recklessly.

Mars in your sign helps you to be yourself unapologetically and stand up for what you want. Venus blesses your material resources all month too.
