Expression through the language of your soul

Gemini’s New Moon will fall on the 26th May at 05:44am here in Brisbane (AEST, GMT+10).

Gemini is the sign associated with connection through communication and, as such, is responsible for expression …

… through the mind via words, ideas, song…

… or through the body via dance, Art forms…

Which form speaks most strongly to you?

Intense and Powerful Communication

Pluto is sesquiquadrate this New Moon bringing in some intensity and the potential for powerful emotions.

Add in Neptune’s square and an opposition from The Black Moon in. Sagittarius and global compassion could be a key point in global transformation in relation to truth this month and the uncovering of corruption (Pluto in Capricorn).

Right now here in Brisbane, a 4 year old non-verbal boy is touching the hearts of thousands, as his parents fight the medical industry for their right to continue to administer organic fruits and vegetables and medicinal cannabis in place of the ten medications that he was on and that were killing him.


Chase has been thriving in his parent’s care (he was previously having 50 seizures a day, which have now been considerably reduced) and yet last Friday, he was forcibly removed from his parents.

His parents do not know where he is.

They are due in court this morning to fight yet another custody battle for him (they’ve won the previous ones).

Please send them your prayers.

Communication comes in many guises and if you play this short video of Chase laughing I’m sure you’ll see nothing but the purest soul sharing a very special and loving moment with his mother…

If you’d like to lend your support to this family, you can do so by liking and following their Facebook page and by signing this petition, which is receiving incredible support.

Potential for Increased Sensitivity and Flowing through Change

Neptune’s square with this New Moon, which is likely to raise sensitivity and compassion may also bring the potential for confusion.

Meditation, Music and/or some other form of spiritual engagement should help to clear any mind fog.

This is great ‘flow’ energy, so tuning into your inspiration and letting your heart lead may be the smoothest way forward.

Dance it, Draw it, Sing it, Meditate on it, Feel it…

 

Forward Momentum and the Integration of Change

With Mars also currently travelling through Gemini and with Gemini’s ruler (Mercury) now direct, you’re likely to find an increase in forward momentum around this New Moon.

Gemini energy is versatile, adaptable and curious, so it’s a great energy for:

  • Stimulating the mind (i.e. through a form of study, engaging conversations)
  • Instigating change
  • Communicating your needs

Mercury (currently travelling through Taurus) is the ruler of this New Moon and is triggering the Saturn/Uranus Trine in the New Moon chart.

This energy will be with us until early November 2017; likely bringing perseverance and patience to put inspired ideas or insights into practice.

Perhaps you were privy to some of these during Mercury’s recent retrograde (and his hangout with Uranus)?

It’s also probable that the changes you’ve been going through during the last 7+ years (since late 2009) are now becoming more integrated into your life, making them less of a challenge.

What are you now embodying and what needs a little more grounding?

What intentions could you set under this New Moon that will either help you to assimilate those changes further or enable you to move forward in a way that honours them?

Perhaps you’re:

  • Assessing previously held belief systems
  • Breathing new life into areas that feel a little stagnant or
  • Implementing healthy boundaries.

 

Communication of Needs in Relationships, Redressing the Balance

With a growing trine to Jupiter in Libra, some of those changes may pertain to your communication style or redressing the balance in your relationships.

Are you communicating your needs to your loved ones and do you feel heard?

The Quest for Freedom and Truth and our Responsibility to Mother Earth

The Black Moon (representative of The Divine Feminine and what has been suppressed) is strong again at this New Moon; pushing for greater truth and freedom of expression, which may not always feel comfortable.

Are you speaking and embodying your truth?

 Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this New Moon?

Where does this New Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Look for 4 degrees and 46 seconds of Gemini, which is the position of the New Moon.

What does that house (area of life) represent?

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 6degrees within your natal chart?

Empowerment, Passion and Creativity – Full Moon in Scorpio May 2017

Full Moon in Scorpio 2017

The Full Moon in Scorpio will exact on 11th May 2017 at 07:43am (AEST).

Power, Passion and Intensity

Scorpio is a sign of depth, passion and emotional intensity, so the build up to this particular Full Moon could be pretty powerful.

And that’s exactly what Scorpio tends to be about – power.

Are you stepping into yours?

With the Moon sesquiquadrate Venus in the Full Moon chart, you may be feeling protective and possibly possessive of loved ones and there is the possibility of increased passion in an intimate relationship.

 

Increased Focus, Inspired Ideas and the Discipline to Effect Change

Uranus and Mercury (now moving direct) remain conjunct in Aries bringing the possibility for insights, revelations and inspired ideas and the Uranus/Saturn Trine has now tightened giving much needed discipline and the stability to manifest your creations.

The energy of this Full Moon is fabulous for focus, drive and investigation and with Mars in Trine to Jupiter there should be lots of energy around.

 

Time to Radiate, Create and Pursue Fulfilment

With the North Node now travelling through Leo (by the time of the Full Moon), the push to be yourself, to find avenues for fulfilment and to embrace your creativity could be strong now and with Mars square to Neptune there is likely to be an especially strong drive for the latter; especially if this aspect is highlighting your own natal chart.

What do you want to express? What do you feel passionate about?

The North Node in Leo is about confidence and embracing and radiating your inner self.

What gifts do you have to share with humanity?

The Black Moon in Sagittarius continues her quest for truth and asks are you being true to yourself and allowing yourself to be vulnerable?

With Chiron in square to Saturn and connecting with this Full Moon, you may have to examine feelings of inadequacy, however.

Meditation could strengthen your connection with your inner wisdom and help you to get more into your natural flow.

 

The Shadow Side

Full Moons tend to highlight our shadow side, so remaining open to what is occurring within and around you as the Full Moon builds can be revealing.

Scorpio energy deals with toxic emotions and the types of emotions that are discarded to the unconscious as ‘bad’, so you may reconnect with suppressed feelings; such as:

  • Jealousy
  • Rage
  • Lust
  • Vengenece
  • Resentment

Always remember to look at why you are feeling this way, that these feelings are part of the human experience and that they are not necessarily ‘bad’.

Becoming aware of suppressed emotion, owning it and working with ways to let it pass through you, are the keys to shifting and transmuting it.

Whereas suppression mostly results in the use of lots of energy to keep them pushed down and hidden and what we hide tends to enlarge, grow hair and become really scary.

Talking about your feelings, writing them out in a journal, meditating on them and upping the exercise can all help at this time.

 

Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon?

Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Look for 20 degrees and 24 seconds of Taurus, and 20 degrees and 24 seconds of Scorpio.

Which house axis (areas of life) is being highlighted in your chart?

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 20degrees within your natal chart?

Those situated between 18 and 22 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and also Aries, Gemini, Libra or Sagittarius are likely to add more to the picture.

Taking Care of your Earthly Body – New Moon in Taurus

New Moon in Taurus

Want to know more about what’s happening Astrologically?

Sign up for my Newsletter here and receive a free copy of my E-Book ‘Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness”.

Sensuality, Security and The Body

In the fast-paced society that we live in today it can be hard to make time for breathing, let alone sensuality, but human touch is a strong need for overall well-being.

This month sees the Taurus/Scorpio axis highlighted, so you may well find yourself craving more connection, affection and intimacy.

April’s New Moon will fall in the sign of Taurus on April 26th 2017 at 10:16:03PM (AEST); a sign greatly associated with the need for physical affection and security.

Anyone with a child with Taurus prominent in their natal chart is likely to confirm their innate need for this and you may well find that this is coming up strongly for the children in your life right now.

Taurus is also the sign that is most often associated with Mother Earth, so making time for nature, fruits and veggies is a wonderful way to honour her and your body.

Revolution in the Air

Mercury is conjunct Uranus in Aries in the New Moon chart and both are connecting with Pluto via a square (aspect of tension).

The transit of Pluto through Capricorn, which began back in 2008 is synonymous with the uprooting of corruption within our power systems here on Earth and when Mercury and Uranus get together in this powerful configuration, people are unlikely to remain quiet to what they are seeing.

Revolution is in the Air.

Mercury/Uranus can also cause a wired feeling to the mind, so if yours is ticking over and preventing you from sleeping it may be worth listening to what it’s trying to tell you; especially if you’re feeling fired up about something.

There can be sudden insights and awakenings now and with Mercury in Retrograde motion a re-think, re-view and re-structure of belief systems is likely; especially when those belief systems are based on false information.

The Quest for Freedom and Truth and our Responsibility to Mother Earth

The Black Moon (representative of The Divine Feminine and what has been suppressed) is pushing for greater truth and freedom of expression, which may not always feel comfortable.

The New Moon’s Grand Cross with Mars in Gemini and the Virgo/Pisces Nodal Axis, as well as the Black Moon’s square to Neptune, appears to be pushing for the outing of information related to deception and to the health of our planet.

Of course, Taurus also governs the body and now more than ever we need to ensure that we know what is going into and onto our bodies if we are to ensure our future health; including ingredients, what those ingredients are (and their possible effects upon the body) and the source of those ingredients.

It’s no coincidence that the documentary series “The Truth About Vaccines” came out last week and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants more information around vaccines.

It covers a lot.

Globally, more and more people are waking up to the corruption of those in  positions of power; such as Governments, The Pharmaceutical Industry, the FDA (The Governors of our food and drug safety) and issues with the Environment and our Animals.

Such abuse of power cannot be allowed to continue. This may involve the ruffling of feathers, but discomfort is necessary if we are to progress.

Taurus likes stability, safety and security. The Black Moon in Sagittarius wants truth and freedom.

Both are necessary if we are to live as free people upon the Earth.

Integration and Working diligently towards Change

Thankfully, with the Saturn/Uranus Trine highlighted in this New Moon chart, it’s probable that the changes you’ve been going through during the last 7+ years (since late 2009) are now becoming more integrated into your life, making them less of a challenge.

What are you now embodying and what needs a little more integration?

What intentions could you set under this New Moon that will either help you to assimilate those changes further or enable you to move forward in a way that honours them?

This aspect gives patience and discipline when breathing new life into areas of your life that have become stagnant or in need of change.

With a Grand Trine between the New Moon, Saturn in Sagittarius and The North Node in Virgo, you may also be considering how you can bring changes related to health and/or work improvements through into the way that you serve others.

If things are to change, then we all need to take responsibility for the health of our own bodies and to minimise the impact that we have upon the Earth.

We are her caretakers, after all.

 Compassion and Oneness

With the Moon’s ruler Venus at the anuretic (final) degree of Pisces in the chart and conjunct Chiron, compassion, oneness and the capacity for deep and unconditional love that encompasses all could be strong.

This contact can have you feeling deep empathy in relation to the pain and suffering that is occurring in the World.

How can you ground this compassion into Mother Earth and help to convert the ‘Love of Power’ (that we often see playing out in the wider World) to the ‘Power of Love’ in your own life?

With Venus yet to completely clear her retrograde path you may be privy to insights around wounded parts of yourself that affect your capacity for self love.

What needs to be addressed and healed that is likely connected to a present relationship or maybe an old wound related to your experience of your parents?

Keep opening. Keep forgiving. Keep moving forwards.

And remember, you are as much a part of this Earth as everyone else. You belong and your input is very much needed.

Body Wisdom

If you’re being visited by the Black Moon in Sagittarius, chances are you’re be finding it difficult to quiet your true self.

Is it time for some emotional honesty and to tune into and trust the wisdom of your body?

We know truth when it is spoken and we innately know what is good and what is not good for our bodies.

What changes can you bring through under this New Moon to nurture your body in more healthful ways?

If you are a parent, what changes can you implement that will help your children to learn to love and nurture of their own bodies?

Remember that children learn from our actions, so anything that you do for you, you do for them.

Awakening and the Need for Patience

If you are someone who is going through an awakening process at this minute and you’re feeling a little lost in the fog, be patient with yourself, give yourself time to adjust and remember that you’re exactly where you need to be right now.

A Need for Earthing/Grounding

If you’re finding that your nervous system is in overdrive at the minute or if you’re noticing that your children tend to be more hyper than usual, you may need to implement a grounding routine to keep everyone centred.

Spending time in nature, walking barefoot on the Earth, burning Essential Oils such as Cedarwood, Vetiver and Sandalwood or pursuits such as gardening, mediation and yoga can help, as can upping the exercise.

Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this New Moon?

Where does this New Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Look for 6 degrees and 27 seconds of Taurus, which is the position of the New Moon.

What does that house (area of life) represent?

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 6degrees within your natal chart?

Those situated between 4 and 8 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and also Libra or Sagittarius are likely to add more to the picture.

Healing Relationships, Cultivating Self Love and Balance – Full Moon in Libra 2017

www.motherearthastrology.com(6)

Sign up for my Newsletter here.

Relationships, Compassion and Healing

April’s Full Moon will fall in the sign of Libra on 11th April at 04:08pm (AEST) again highlighting our current Jupiter transits and continuing the push for powerful transformation and growth.

This transformation is likely to take place through relationships, relating and/or your relationship with yourself.

Venus rules this Full Moon chart and placed alongside Chiron in Pisces, she indicates the potential for deep sensitivity, compassion and the possible connection with old wounds.

Illumination of Pain Points

Past pain around being unlovable, betrayal (usually of own ideals/expectations) and the struggle for independence within a relationship may arise now as could difficulty with even minor conflict.

Saturn in Sagittarius moving to square Chiron shows the likely need to take responsibility for healing (your own, a loved one or a relationship) and can highlight where fears and restriction may be keeping you bound.

Guilt, Inadequacy, Shame and a lack of self worth can all feature during this transit and you may have to face where walls have been erected that are no longer necessary.

You may have to consider where your desires and/or values are not being met or acknowledged.

Could it be that more self love and assertion (in asking for what you desire) is needed here?

You may also be experiencing financial issues, which can be a reflection of low self worth and can contribute to a feeling of constraint.

Full Moons tend to heighten energy and illuminate what needs attention.

If you’ve had an intense, chaotic and drama-filled build up to this Full Moon then it might be worth considering some changes.

The Moon’s square to Pluto can rumble up deep emotions that may have previously been buried and can also indicate power struggles and/or darker emotions; such as depression, envy and rage.

With Uranus thrown into the mix, there can be sudden revelations, outbursts and the ability to see or connect with what was previously hidden.

With only a few more days until she turns direct, what lessons has Venus bought to you and what now needs to be addressed?

The Quest for Peace and Sensuality

Libra wants to keep the peace and sometimes at all costs, but such feelings need to be felt, experienced and worked through if true harmony is to be achieved.

Burying emotions and pretending that they don’t exist can lead to them appearing bigger than they truly are.

Remember that our reactions and the way that we deal with such emotions often determine the outcome.

If you’re feeling envy, try looking at what that person or thing has shown you about your own life. What do you desire that they have?

If you’re feeling a sense of rage, try looking at what’s triggering it. Do you need a physical outlet such as regular exercise or more physical connection with your partner (Mars is in Taurus after all) or has someone pushed a boundary too far?

If you’re connecting with darker moods, then maybe there’s a need to clean up your diet, detoxify and/or spend more time outdoors.

With Mars in Taurus inconjunct this Full Moon, the need for greater sensuality and closeness could be strong.

Slowing down and making time for the senses may bring a greater sense of well-being. Think delicious food, massages, nature walks, essential oils …

It’s also possible that stubborn behaviour could be preventing closeness.

Using Mercury’s current retrograde to review what is arising, patiently working through any issues and finding practical and realistic solutions whilst holding yourself and others in compassion may help.

Breaking out of Restriction(s)/ Transmutation and Personal Power

Independence and growth may also feature strongly and you may find conflicts arise with your loved ones; especially where someone may be feeling restricted.

How are you honouring your need for adventure and expansion?

Are any of the above pain points holding you back?

When faced honestly, such pain can be transmuted and released opening us to deeper levels of awakening and re-connecting us with our personal power.

Balance

Balance is a key Libran theme.

Are you looking after everyone else’s needs and neglecting your own?

Are you spending too much time at the office and not enough with loved ones?

What steps can be put in place to allow you greater freedom, independence and the ability to enjoy what you value?

What Area of your Life is this Full Moon Highlighting?

Remember to check your chart and to look for where 21 degrees and 32 seconds of Libra and 21 degrees and 32 seconds of Aries fall.

Which house axis is being highlighted and what areas of life does that axis represent?

Do you have any planets sitting around 21 degrees within your chart? What are they bringing to the table?
