Astro Update 8 28 15

Just checking in to mention that the current Venus Rx (Retrograde) turns Direct on Sept.6 at 2:29AM/MDT. The energy around money, relationships, what’s important to each of us, and for women, how we see ourselves and the beliefs we’ve had, are becoming undeniably in our face to be dealt with. The energy is intensifying and will continue until it turns Direct. It also doesn’t matter what the catalyst is, or what the delivery system looks like. The point is that since the end of July we are all being pushed to re-evaluate our priorities.
Old patterns are showing their obsolescence. New ones hover at the edges, ready to fall into place.
New ways of thinking, new ways of seeing our own lives, are making themselves known.

The Full Moon on the 29th at 12:35PM/MDT suggests the need to balance the dream and the reality of what’s needed now. How to use discernment to work for us.

Aug. 31st has Sun oppose Neptune and Venus conjunct Mars. A highly creative and artistic day while challenges to the truth of things.

“Suffering is a gift. In it is hidden mercy.”

Astro Update 8 1 15

Today, Saturn turns Direct at 11:53 PM/MDT. It has been Rx (Retrograde) since mid-March. Places where we contemplated taking responsibility, where we knew we needed to step up, or saw opportunities to take authority (from the word author of ourselves), now we can set all that in motion. After Rx back into Scorpio, we are now ready for Saturn's dance through Sagittarius, broadening our views, strengthening our beliefs, and reminding us that we are the author of our own lives.

Some people look at Saturn and only think of limitation, responsibility, etc. But without Saturn, we would not be an upright evolution…Saturn rules the bones and teeth of the body. We could not stand upright without Saturn. It gives us strength, parenting skills, and the ability to take the helm. It shows us the mountain top. How to get there is up to us.

So set your goals and continue on!

Astro Update 7 24 15

Tomorrow morning, July 25, Venus turns Rx (Retrograde) at 3:29AM/MDT and Mars is square Uranus at 3:42AM/MDT. It heralds a day of extremes. Venus is Rx until Sept.6 and money, love and relationships are the name of the game. Things you never knew or wanted to know are suddenly revealed about the other person. Finances for some will get skinny; for others, a waiting game. Beneath all of this, is a diving into your values and what you hold as important and what it is time to walk away from.

The Mars/Uranus square brings erratic energy…be mindful of where you put your feet, your attention especially while driving.

Sunday, July 26, at 4:38AM/MDT, Uranus turns Rx until Christmas, and we work with our inner entrepreneur…those ingenious, intuitive parts of ourselves. Where and how do we give ourselves permission to be more fully who we really are.

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes.
Because for those who love with heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation.

Astro Update 7 14 15

One of my values with Astrology is to educate and inform, not to engender fear. With that being said, I am sending this email out after writing it 3 days ago and holding it. The aspects that are coming, 2 Mars aspects, are intense, catalyzing and by no means simple. I do not know if they will be headline makers. Sometimes these seemingly volatile aspects slip by in the middle of the night and no one knows the difference, except where it might effect a person in their own chart.
These 2 aspects may go that way. And yet, given the present political climate, climate change, and earth changes, I feel the importance of sharing what I know. I’m hoping, as a messenger, that will be respected. People usually want the truth of the possibilities. Here are 2 from my perspective.

On Wed. July 15, before the New Moon at 7:24PM/MDT, Mars will oppose Pluto at 8:08AM/MDT and Mercury will do the same at 5:38PM/MDT. Many of us already feel the build-up over the past week. It can bring stark insights, seeing beneath the surface of things previously unknown or hidden. And it can bring heavy responses in the world to existing situations…land shifts; knee-jerk reactions from the human sector; weather-related events. It is intense, sometimes violent, in its manifestation.

On Saturday, July 25 at 3:42AM/MDT, Mars squares Uranus. This is a classic accident pattern with erratic energies afoot. This aspect presents possibilities of explosions, like volcanic eruptions; railway and airline disruptions; and a catalyst for change, big changes.

Since these two outer planets, Uranus and Pluto, have created some deep changes for all of us over the past 3 yrs., and they were designed to do just that, I think with Mars coming along and poking at these 2 - 100# gorillas in the (cosmic) room, it would be good to be alert and awake on these 2+ days.

Something has happened
To my understanding of existence
That now makes my heart always full of wonder
And kindness.
