Full Moon in Aries – What it means to be the Peaceful Warrior

Full Moon in Aries – What it means to be the Peaceful Warrior

Happy Full Moon 🌝 in Aries ♈️ (Oct 1st 2020, 21:05 GMT) !

We come close to the Climax of a cycle started in the beginning of the year in late March. As the Sun shines a strong light onto the Moon we become aware of our evolution and what was in the shadow finally comes to light and to our consciousness.

Every Full Moon we are given the chance to realize our evolution in the past 6 months in regards with the matters related to the sign where the Moon falls into. Today we are in Aries. Aries rules over our energy, our impulses, motivation and drive to act. It is pure energy of doing. Not in the sense of following a plan, but just actively doing something ! It is also how we react : are we impatient, selfish, aggressive (which would be negative expressions of this sign) or are we brave, pioneer and assertive ?

It is a great time to think back and reflect :

⭐️ How have you been taking the lead role in your own life ?

⭐️ Have you been brave when needed ?

⭐️Have you been too impatient or selfish ?

⭐️What have you learnt about managing your energy ?

⭐️How do you feel about taking the initiative ?

Mars the ruler of Aries is Retrograde in Aries until November 14th, inviting us to review what it means to take independent action, how do we deal with frustrations and delays and what is truly motivating us to go forward

The Sabian Symbol for the Moon in the Full Moon is “A Teacher Gives New Symbolic Forms To Traditional Images“ and perhaps this is speaking to us about our pre-conceived ideas of what is leadership, independence and what is being brave. Societies teach us about how we should signify these terms and through our life experiences we have the opportunity to verify them and decide if we want to re-invent new meanings.

Chiron sitting only 2 degrees away says “A Large Woman’s Hat With Streamers Blown By An East Wind” and it is perhaps just like an East Wind blowing away our outdated conceptions, we are given the chance to indeed free ourselves from them.

Once we become aware on what is really holding back on our growth we can begin the process of letting go, of transformation.

The Sun sitting in the opposite end in Libra is at its “fall”. It is hard to think only of the self when in Libra we are asked to think through the prism of relationships. The Sabian Symbol for 9° Libra suggest that the Self, however, has become aware of the rapid waters it has been navigating, and wants to find the calm waters of balance.

A balanced Aries energy is capable of being interdependent, valuing initiative, motivation and being brave. It is the Peaceful Warrior that does not react or aggressively attacks, but rather acts with the just the right energy, inspiration and a good dose of optimism !

The month of October is a powerful one, two Full Moons and the veil between the worlds thinner. It is a special movement to find the right balance within our relationships so we can begin the shadow work required in Scorpio Season starting October 22nd.

Healing is never easy, but is necessary if we want to evolve.

I hope you’ll find time to reflect about these ideas and come up with your own version of independence, leadership and assertiveness, one that brings more positivity, cooperation and love into your life.

Letting go of wounds! – Astro Forecast Week Sep 27th to Oct 3rd 2020

Letting go of wounds! – Astro Forecast Week Sep 27th to Oct 3rd 2020

As we approach the end of the year and the end of the month it feels as though the energies are picking up and the transformations, lessons and adjustments we need to make before the end of the year are being intensified.

Imagine you have been running a marathon and you are towards the end of the race, however you know you still need to cross the finish line and you’ll need strength and perseverance to do so.

The energies of this week really make me think about our development and how we can still improve. In one hand we have once more Mars retrograde squaring big old Saturn trying to teach us to deal with our frustrations, anger and overall excess energy and only a few days later a Full Moon in Aries bringing to light all the lessons and blessings from the past 6 month period since the New Moon back in March. Have we learnt our lessons ? Mars the ruler of Aries is still retrograde and it feels like we will be collecting more lessons than blessings this time.

Add that Chiron is still in Aries we can’t deny we are in need for healing in regards to Aries matters.

I invite you to take a look at your life this week and reflect upon Aries matters. Here are some questions that can help you :

⭐️ How have I been dealing with frustrations in my life ?

⭐️ How do I feel about my energy level and overall motivation ?

⭐️ What have I learned about being independent and brave in my life ?

⭐️ Where have I been impulsive or too quick to act/react and what are the lessons from it ?

I can’t say energetically it is a smooth week, it hasn’t been a smooth year… But I do hope you’ll take the time to integrate the lessons that are available for us right now.

Weekly Astro Forecast Sept 27th to Oct 3rd, 2020

Sunday 27th

Mercury into Scorpio 7:41 GMT

Today Mercury enters into Scorpio and we want to get real about things. In this Zodiac Sign, the planet of the mind, communications, ideas and systems is not so interested in chit chat and shallow information, it wants to understand deeply what is going on and get to the truth. There is a sense of mistrust and fear because of the deep dark waters of Scorpio, but the goal is to cut the sugar coating and get down to reality. This will definitely come out in our way to communicate with others, in writing, speaking, visually and even non-verbal communication. 

Venus Sextile N.N 14:41 GMT

Today we also have an opportunity to open a new doorway created by the North Node in Gemini and Venus in Leo. This is a particularly positive opportunity that deals with Relationships & finances and new ideas, communications & short travels. The key with sextiles is not so much about the event in itself, but more so about what doors get opened that were closed before. The choice to go through them is yours.

Monday 28

Saturn Retrogrades ends 05:11 GMT

Saturn Stations at 25° Capricorn just before it goes back to direct motion. Saturn is often related to structures, restrictions, responsibility, discipline and has been retrograde since  May 10th. Often a planet in retrograde motion expresses its energy inwardly rather than externally and we have been re-considering the structures in our lives. What have we learnt since May about responsibility, discipline and hard work and how do we want to go forward with these themes in our lives. If you have integrated the lessons and you do roll up your sleeves you’ll find that the rewards of Saturn are empowering. 

Tuesday 29th

Venus Trines Mars Rx 01:01 GMT

Venus Trines Mars on Tuesday and this can represent a sudden increase in our energy levels as we take rapid action towards what we desire. If Venus is what we want, Mars is how we go after it and in a trine it means we do it fast, with energy and enthusiasm. With Mars being retrograde perhaps the action is not concrete in the outside world, but it has an effect of increasing the internal drive to achieve the desired outcome. 

Sun Opposes Chiron 20:43 GMT

At the same time the Sun is faced with Chiron “the wounded healer”. It is as if the Self confronts it’s Shadow Self. As the bearer of light, the Sun throws light into what has been hurting us lately. We are confronted with a choice : should we continue to be selfish, impatient, overly impulsive and ultimately hurting ourselves and our relationships  (Chiron in Aries) or should we find common ground and discover our light through the lens of partnering and cooperating with others (Sun in Libra) ?Once we arrive in a harmonious relationship with who we are individually (Aries) we can fully express our authenticity with otherS and experience our potential (Sun) through our relationships to others (Libra).

Mars Rx Squares Saturn 21:49 GMT

And we finally hit the 2nd Square between Mars and Saturn, hopefully this time we will feel a little stress and frustration than the first time it happened back in August. This is the second of three squares happening between these two planets and they force events and actions in our lives that are here to teach us about navigating frustrations in the face of restrictions. Imagine wanting to move forward and being stopped by someone who has more authority regarding a matter, or when you want to go out and have fun, but you have to stay in and do the work. This tension might bring us to act upon limitations, but the real question is how. 

Thursday October 1st

Full Moon 🌝 in Aries ♈️ 21:05 GMT

The Full Moon in Aries is finally here and we close up a cycle started in the beginning of the year in late March. Every Full Moon we are given the chance to realize our evolution in the past 6 months in regards with the matters related to that sign in this case Aries. Aries rules over our energy, our impulses, motivation and drive to act. It is pure energy of doing. Not in the sense of following a plan, but just purely doing something ! It is also how we react : are we impatient, selfish, aggressive (which would be negative expressions of this sign) or are we brave, pioneer and assertive ? What are you ready to let go of in regards with these matters ? 

Friday October 2nd

Venus into Virgo 20:48 GMT

Venus ends it’s cruise in extravagant Leo to enter detail oriented and efficiency focused Virgo. Here Venus wants to be practical, down to earth. It wants the details to be perfect and it wants to be of service. Although we often relate Virgo to the quest of perfectionism and constant criticism, Virgo is really trying to improve the world where it lives, it wants to be of service and help others be better too. In relationships we might start taking a closer look at our partnerships and what is working and what needs perfecting. In money matters it is a good time to get real about your finances and figure out where are your coins disappearing to ? What are the details of your income versus expenses and where is your money going and how can you improve it !

PS : Obviously there are other movements in the Sky, but I chose to write about the most significant ones in my experience as an Astrologer.

Wishing you all a wonderful week !

5 ideas to celebrate the Fall Equinox + 10 more

5 ideas to celebrate the Fall Equinox + 10 more

Happy FALL and happy Spring if you are in the southern hemisphere ! Today (Sep 22nd 2020 13h30 GMT) we officially kick off Libra Season and we celebrate here in the Northern Hemisphere the Automnal Equinox.

Different than the Solstices where we have either the longest day or night of the year, the Equinoxes mark a time where the duration of the day is almost exactly the same as the night.

The Autumnal Equinox paradoxically marks the beginning of the end, specially at the Northern hemisphere, as we prepare for the cold, long winter nights. This is the time when we slowly start to retreat to the comfort of our homes, watching nature decay as it slips into the up coming winter sleep.

It is a particular time of the year where traditionally farmers would harvest all they had planted so they could prepare for the winter. By doing that they would also know the fruits of their labor. Has this been a good or a bad year ? Do we have enough seeds to plant for the next season ? Will we have enough to endure the cold winter nights ? It is both time to be grateful for the abundance of the harvest and to prepare for the harder times.

It is not a coincidence that it also during this time where we encounter the concepts of aging and dying, as we are after all, part of the life cycle… So this is the perfect time to go within and look back at the past 6 months and see what has worked, what hasn’t, what needs to go, what needs to stay and celebrate the wheel of life.

Fun Fact : According to Greek Mythology, it is during the Fall and Winter that Persephone would return to the under world as a prisoner wife to Hades (Pluto) . Her mother, Demeter or Ceres, who feeds the earth and produces the food and flowers, would feel so desperate and go into deep mourning that her suffering would translate into famine and starvation in the world. The people beg Zeus to do something and he pledged with Hades (Pluto) who agreed to let the girl come back for the other half of the year to be with her mother. Demeter would then be happy to have her daughter back and would bring back food and flowers to earth (Spring and Summer).

With the beginning of Libra season, we take note of what is good and what is bad, the pros and cons, and we try to see our situation from different perspectives as in to make a decision on what to keep or what to let go. Much like the symbolism of this time, this is a good time to let go of things that have done their time and are no longer serving us. Like the trees lose their leaves to concentrate their energy in surviving, we too can remove the excess “leaves” we have been carrying that are no longer needed.

With our modern lives we have lost touch with this deep natural cycles that dictate a rythme into all that is alive on Earth. Many of us have been pretending it doesn’t affect us… If you are here it is because you want to reconnect to this inner knowledge and the best way to reconnect to the natural cycles and create flow in your life is to first acknowledge they exist and then take time to celebrate these turning points and align with the energy available.

Here are 5 ways you can celebrate it (Click here to get 10 more ) :

⭐️ Create a gratitude board.

⭐️ Spend sometime in Nature

⭐️ Cleaning and decluttering your home

⭐️ Do a Fall Ritual

⭐️ Check in with your intuition : do a Tarot Card reading session.

Speak up your mind ! – Astro Forecast Week Sep 20th 2020

Speak up your mind ! – Astro Forecast Week Sep 20th 2020

I remember the first time I had to defend my ideas in front of more experienced people. I was scared and the weight of responsibility felt really real. I was about 23 years old and I was finishing my studies in University and I had to defend my dissertation which I had spend 1 year and half writing it. Although in front of me stood a board that could decide my success or failure, I had no other choice but to defend the ideas I had been working on for so long. 

As I look at the Forecast of the week and the action around Mercury I think about the effort we make to speak about what we truly believe in.

It takes courage to defend our view points, our thoughts and ideas and even more strength to put in ways so that this information is spread correctly.

Fun Fact Mercury (Hermès Greek in mythology) is the God that steals Fire and gives it to humanity, bringing knowledge, information and “technology”. By doing so he defies the more powerful gods like Zeus (Jupiter), Cronus (Saturn) and Hades (Pluto).  What kind of information, knowledge and technology is Mercury bringing you this week ?

Sometimes we have to be bold and we are forced into taking the action, we might be met with adversity, but these are forces that push us into the direction we need to go. If they might seem hard in the beginning, they will helps us to structure ourselves and defend what we truly believe in.

As we approach the end of the year, the Fall Equinox invites us to celebrate the harvest and also to prepare for the colder months.

We are at a turning point and we need to take action if we are to see our ideas manifested in real life by the time we reach 2021. 

Keep reading for next weeks Forecast



Weekly Astro Forecast Sept 20th to 26th, 2020

Monday 21

Mercury Square Pluto Rx – 6:21 GMT +1

It takes a tremendous amount of courage to speak up about what’s on our minds and specially when we are trying to create justice and equality (Libra qualities) in the face of powerful structures (Pluto in Capricorn). The tension, or frustration we may feel, might just push us to stand up and speak up for what we believe.  In this Square, Mercury meets Pluto and opens up about injustices regarding power and control issues. Think about Greta Thunberg strong speech in front of politicians and institutions defending the injustices in the climate change urgency. 

Tuesday 22

Sun enters Libra – Fall/Spring Equinox. 13h30 GMT

The Sun moves into Libra where it has to think about the other and not only just of the self. This is not a favorite place for it to be as it rules the Ego, the ”I” and it is at its “fall” in Libra. Natural ruler of the the self, it wants to shine on its own and in Libra it is asked to compromise, to find harmony between oneself and other “Sun”. This doesn’t mean that Libra season is not meant to be good, it just means that during this time our focus shifts from ourselves into creating balance with others and when the ego needs to compromise it might feel uncomfortable. During Libra season we are required to re-stablished balance in our relationships and partnerships but also in the different areas of our lives where Libra falls in our natal charts. This also marks the Equinox where we enter the last quarter of the year and we harvest what we’ve planted in the spring (northern hemisphere). During this time we also prepare for the coming winter months and we go within. 

Mercury Trine NN 08:34 GMT +1

Trines are aspects that allow energies to flow effortlessly, in this case it equals new information coming in easily, new ideas, new communications that will allow us to move closer to our Future Destiny directed but the North Node. Mercury wants harmony and justice in Libra and the North Node wants information to circulate, they couldn’t work better together. It’s as if you you find the perfect PR to disseminate your ideas and spread the word.

Wednesday 23

Mercury Square Saturn 11:38 GMT +1h

On the same note we might be forced to organize and structure out thinking patterns and ideas. We are clear about the harmony, balance and justice we want to create, but we might not be as organized and disciplined about sharing that information as we should. Squaring Saturn, Mercury is forced to sit down and structure its thoughts and ideas. Perhaps it is time to draft your action plan just as you get ready for the First Quarter Moon in Capricorn. 

Thursday 24

First Quarter Moon 🌝 Capricorn ♑️ 02:55 GMT +1

The First Quarter Moon is a moment where either we take action or we are forced into taking action as it is the nature of Squares. The Moon rules Cancer and it is what we need to feel safe and balanced and in Capricorn, a sign that doesn’t really dwell much in emotional outbursts, it needs structure, stability, discipline and responsibility. Eventhough the Sun is in Libra and our focus is on creating harmony and making sure we are being fair with those around us, internally we are craving discipline, structures and stability. As we got clear on what we needed to clean up during our New Moon Moon 🌚 in Virgo ♍️ , this it the time where we get serious about implementing these changes.

Mercury Opposes Mars Rx 11:52 GMT+1

Mercury Opposing Mars Retrograde reminds me of sitting in front of Netflix  trying to decide which movie to watch with your partner. You want something relaxing and informative, he/she wants an adventure documentary. You hesitate, should each of you put on your headsets and watch whatever you desire alone or should one of you compromise and deal with the frustration in order to create harmony in the relationship. Oppositions bring us to moments of decision. The key to living through the polarity is trying to find the middle. With Mercury it is about what we say and how we communicate. Perhaps we need to make a choice about choosing which battles to fight and dealing with the frustration of a retreat or the aggressiveness of an attack.

A note on Venus Transits this week : throughout the week Venus will be making Quincunxes to Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto. The planet of relationships and fiances will have to change certain ways and adapt if it is to create balance and beauty in our lives supporting the Sun in Libra. Look at your 1-1 relationships and to your finances. Where do you need to adjust in order to create more abundance, magic and transformations.

PS : Obviously there are other movements in the Sky, but I chose to write about the most significant ones in my experience as an Astrologer.

New Moon in Virgo – Organize your life

New Moon in Virgo – Organize your life

Happy New Moon in Virgo (Sep. 17th 2020, 11:00 GMT) !

Although we are almost at the end of Virgo Season we still have time to set Virgo intentions. While the Sun has been traveling through this zodiac sign, it has made us take a closer look at our messy lives, we’ve (hopefully) become a little bit clearer on where we need to declutter, clean up and get more organized. 

Think about making lists, lists of lists and overall putting your life back in order.

This is the Universe giving us an opportunity as we close in to the end of the year to re-organize ourselves and make sure we have everything we need (and only what we really need) to finish the sprint we’ve set ourselves to back in January. 

During this New Moon take some time to :

  • Organize your home, office and space – a clean space = a clean mind
  • Set goals to improve your health, daily routines and life style (could be a good time to start Yoga or eating healthier)
  • Think about where in your life you tend to be too critical and perfectionist, is it something that is helping you or not ?
  • Being of service. Virgo’s ultimate energy is devoted to service and doing what needs to be done

Remember when setting intentions during a New Moon ritual focus on how you want to feel rather than what the end result will look like. Be opened to what the universe might bring you by the time the cycle reaches its peak in the Full Moon in Virgo in about 6 months from now.

Make it right – Astro-Forecast Week September 13th 2020

Make it right – Astro-Forecast Week September 13th 2020

Hi there  !

I made a mistake. There you go I admit it. Last week I came to realize I had messed up something really important to me. I felt as though I was caught up being mischievous, like a little kid eating too much candy before dinner.  Obviously it is not a pleasant feeling when you realize you’ve made a mistake, and although it is important to come clean about, it is more important to adjust your atitude so you can be responsible and  repare the mistake you’ve made, even when we are grown ups. This obviously came hand in hand with the Planetary transits from last week.

 This week we are given the chance to make it right and we should take it.

Unlike me, perhaps you didn’t mess up anything important, however this week we will feel the need to readjust our course, straighten our sails and get our crew on board with a better view of where we are heading. 

Check out this week’s forecast ! 

 


Weekly Forecast September 13th to 19th

 

Sunday 13th

Venus Trines Chiron

Aspiring actress needing confidence to shine meets the wounded director that will help her glow. This is the nature of Venus Trining Chiron. We get an opportunity to heal our wounds in regards to our leadership and capacity to take action (Chiron in Aries) as we step into what we value with confidence, passion and courage (Venus in Leo). We have a beautiful opportunity to heal or « stage fear » in life.

Tuesday 15th

Sun Trines Pluto

As we get closer to the end of Virgo Season, our focus is on clearing out whatever is no longer serving us. Think about it this way : you’ve made a mess in your home trying to organize things into categories (Sun in Virgo), but then Marie Kondo comes in and reminds you that you need to « throw away » what no longer sparks joy and is not useful (Pluto in Capricorn). Roll up your sleeves, put some fun music its is cleaning day !

Venus Squares Uranus

After feeling confident and bold, it’s time to agitate the rebellious side of us. As we feel more confident we also can act in sudden and unexpected ways. When Venus meets Uranus with tension we might act impulsively, or at least feel the urge to do so. It’s like when you are feeling good about yourself and you walk into a store with beautiful things and suddenly you end up buying something you don’t really need in the spur of the moment. Later you look at what you bought and think : « Why did I buy in the first place ! »

Thursday17th

New Moon in Virgo

Almost at the end of Virgo Season, while the Sun gets ready to move into Libra, the Moon is finally realizing that it needs to start a new cycle if wants to build balance and harmony in the next month. What is this new cycle ? We need to purify whatever is not good for us. The New Moon in Virgo asks us to pay attention to detail, to separate, organize, categorize our emotions. Be pragmatic about it and down to earth. Perhaps it is a good thing to step out of perfectionism and criticism and focus on devoted service for the greater good. Wherever House the New Moon falls in your chart will give you a hint on where this new beginning is.

>>>Become part of the Moon Watchers Club for the Full Video Explanation about the New Moon and to understand how each sign will be affected by it.<<<

Sun Square NN

Have you ever had days when you are very focused on your task, you are doing something that needs a lot of attention and care and suddenly your phone rings. You want to ignore it, but the caller keeps calling back and you feel like you have no choice but to reply. This is the Sun in Virgo meeting the North Node in Gemini. We want to stay focused in the task at hand, but the North Node is asking us to share and communicate whatever we are doing with others. Perhaps we don’t feel ready to do it yet, but the Cosmos doesn’t always give us the time we desire. Take this as na opportunity to learn something that will broaden your view and spread your seeds.

Mercury Square Jupiter

Balance is a key whenever we want to advance in different areas of our life. It requires us to have a quick mind and be able to see the different options and possibilities at our disposal. However, when we fall into the trap of not deciding one path or another, we might feel pressure form our responsibilities to get moving. With Mercury in Libra squaring Jupiter in Capricorn we might just be driven from overthinking to actually start doing whatever it is that we want to accomplish. I’d go with Jupiter on this one as there are more chances for growth. So get the work done !

Sun Trines Saturn

We have a great opportunity today to really focus our attention and be disciplined about advancing on our goals in a step by step way. Pragmatism, discipline, structure. The more we stay in this energy today the better we will feel to progress.

Friday 18th and Saturday 19th

If you ever started working on a project only to realize the goals of the project change while still in the planning stages and you have to re-do much of the work and action plan you’ve had imagined, then you are familiar with the energy coming in this Friday and Saturday. As the Cosmos gave us a little push into getting organized and structured to move forward, we are called to make adjustments in regards to our dream vision for the future/ (Mercury Quincunx Neptune). At the same time we will need to adjust the focus of our actions if we are to advance (Sun Quincunx Mars Retrograde). These are changes that will be positive in the long run. We are being directed to where we need to go if we desire to become aligned with our true purpose.

What makes your heart beat – Astro-Forecast Week September 6th 2020

What makes your heart beat – Astro-Forecast Week September 6th 2020

Hi lovely one,

 

Last week, I was telling a friend how my partner and I are currently exploring a new country, looking for land in order to settle our roots after two years of nomad life. I was telling her that in order to do that we bought a Campervan so we can travel and sleep anywhere, the ultimate nomad life style, that is temporary of course, because we are dreaming of our future home.

And as I told her about this she, who is also going through making big life changes to follow her path, said that I was living the dream life. That really made me wonder… Whose dream life was Iiving ? Society’s or mine ? Mine definitely. But what defines a dream life and how do you know if you are on the right path ?

To me this answer didn’t come easy and I still have days where I doubt myself, I get scared and anxious, I wonder if I’m too romantic and other days, I know inside that this is the path for me and that I feel truly happy and aligned.

Obviously these doubts are part of the process. Through Astrology and Tarot I see these cycles of going forward, being highly motivated, and then making a stop and re-evaluating. This year, has been quite intense in this sense, because although we could feel this on an individual level, now we can definitely see it in a collective one. This historical moment is giving the opportunity to many of us to make the changes, or at least start them, so that we live more aligned with our true purposes, and find happiness on the simple things.

For the last four months Jupiter has been retrograding, making us look within, reminding us of what truly brings us joy and excitement. During this time, things might have become a bit foggy and harder to see. But it’s exactly when we can’t use our regular go-to senses that our intuition kicks in, and it’s in the midst of the foggyness that we learn to trust our hearts.

Jupiter will go direct this week, removing this veil and as we see clearly Mars will asks us to take it slow. It is starting a retrograde motion for the next 2 months and a half. During this time we will be able to learn to deal with frustration, re-evaluate our motivation and drive and even our actions. We are almost at the last quarter of 2020 and the energy that has been helping us transition this year is trying ti wrap it up so that we can make the final steps to complete the transformation.

These transformations of course have to come from within and we can find true happiness if we are aligned with our deepest values. So I ask you, what truly motivates you in life ? Have you been able to understand what truly brings you joy ?

This is the time to answer to these questions so you can move ahead with your transformations from a place of peace instead of fear.


Weekly Forecast September 6th to 12th

Sunday 6th

Venus enters Leo

Relationships can breathe a little during this time. With Venus entering Leo today, it wants to find and feel LOVE in a Romantic Movie type of way. In romantic Leo, Venus demonstrates love in dramatic and exaggerated ways, the same way it spends money in carelessly wanting to surround itself with beautiful shiny things. Venus leaves the home and the protection of the nest in Cancer in order to be a romantic and passionate lover in Leo. It could be a good time to meet someone new, or even to bring in new passion and fire to existing relationships.

Venus has had some rough times in the past month, opposing Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter, which means that relationships and finances were feeling a lot of pressure from these 3 powerful Planets. Now, it has more freedom to show love more authentically and even play. The negotiations however will happen with the Sun, the ruler of Leo, who right now is more concerned about making progress and fine tuning every aspect of the self. It reminds me of couples who have been in a relationship for a long time and suddenly one of the partners starts working out more, trying to improve him/herself so that it can feel better and therefore be a better lover (Venus in Leo).

Wednesday 9th

Mars Retrograde 28° Aries

It is not a pleasant thing when an action oriented planet such as Mars goes retrograde, it means that moving forward becomes very difficult. The time is to revise our actions, learn to master our temper and even how we deal with frustration.

During 2 months period we will be asked to revise our actions, to review our action plan. Some astrologers suggest even finishing up old projects or even going on a vacation. But that isn’t always possible. The way I see this is that going forward will be difficult, so this is a good time to review what is motivating you to achieve your goals. Mars is the FUEL that makes us blaze through and go get what we want. So if the FUEL is lacking, why is that ? OR is the FUEL the right one ? Perhaps you started a new venture with the wrong motivation, or you are feeling low in energy because you are missing your drive. This is a good opportunity to get in touch with why is that and how are you learning to deal with this frustration. When Mars will go back to Direct motion, it will have crossed paths with Saturn for the second time, and it will be growing in wisdom until they form the last square in January, where it will be graduating from the lessons of this transit.

Sun Trines Jupiter

On a positive note, the Sun and Jupiter come together in harmony in a trine aspect, Jupiter’s signature move. Jupiter expands the light of the Sun making it shine even brighter. Jupiter who is slowing down to finally go back to direct motion on Saturday connects to the Sun who has his nose focused on the details of Virgo. The Sun wants to make improvement in health, wealth, business, and daily routines, connecting to Jupiter in Capricorn who is concerned with long term planning, business growth and consistent steady forward movement, these two coming together might bring a nice productive day to make positive changes in your work routine that will take you closer to achieving your long term goals. Perhaps you’ll magically understand what is the flaw you need to fix. The Sabian Symbols for this connection is 17° Virgo – A Ouija Board and 17° Capricorn : The union flag flies from A British Warship. And just like that, magically an issue that has been bugging you flies away.

Thursday 10th

Mercury Opposes Chiron

Mercury in Libra concerned with making adjustments is opposing Chiron in Aries. That is to say that, although focusing on harmony and trying to find common ground is important while communicating and sharing ideas in partnerships, it is also important to stay true to yourself. Chiron in Aries is pointing to us where in our leadership we are wounded. Where in our lives we are not being the leaders of it and we are letting others take the steering wheels from our boats. It is painful to watch someone make decisions for you and feel like you are in someone else’s shadow. It is time we become aware of this situation and by finding harmony within ourselves, taking a leading role, we can from an equal position negotiate with others to cooperate. In an opposition we are torn between opposite energies, the key is always to meet in the middle and create balance. You cannot ignore your wounds as the leader of your life and let others make the decision for you, but you can use your experience from this wonderful to heal and harmonize communications with others and with yourself.

Last Quarter Moon 🌙  in Gemini 18°

Action is required when the Moon and the Sun challenge one another. With the knowledge gathered in last weeks Full Moon in Pisces, here we are called to release what is no longer serving us. The Moon in Gemini seeks information, all types of information. It is curious, inquisitive, it is going after the truth. The Sun on itself is also focused on finding the truth, but in a practical, analytical and critical way. We could think these two energies would form a good aspect, but if the Sun in Virgo wants the practicality, the Moon in Gemini wants to discuss over things. The Sun wants introspection and evaluation, the Moon wants to talk about it, read about and change its mind about it. Perhaps the key is to talk through what is not working, what needs improvement and find common ground with the help of Mercury in Libra.

Saturday 12th

Jupiter Direct 17° Capricorn

Finally after 4 months of retrograde motion, Jupiter the planet of expansion, growth and blessings is finally going back to Direct motion. During this time we have had the time to go within and analyse what truly matters to us. Jupiter brings excitement, happiness, expansion into the areas of life that it touches in our birth charts and in transits. When it is retrograde we are given the chance to evaluate what truly sparks to us ? Where do we find the most joy within ourselves ? What do we want to cultivate and grow and expand from inside out. After this 4 month period, we can finally open up and share all the good inspiration we’ve found within.

Get real with your goals Astro-Forecast Week August 30th to September 5th 2020

Hi Moon Watchers and everyone !

FIRST !

I’m so excited this week I’m Launching my website today ! YAY !

I’m so happy to officially kick this new place for the Moon Watchers to gather every Sunday Morning with weekly forecasts and anyone else who wishes to join and read my articles.

If you are new here, you can join my private Facebook Group here : Moon Watchers Club.

This week I’m making something special ! I hosted a live Tarot Forecast for the Month Of September on IGTV. You can watch the replay over here.


This week’s forecast really reminds me of these sports films where the athlete goes under tremendous pressure and training in order to improve her/his skills before a competition.

The athlete has a goal that it is to win, but often she/him gets caught up in life’s pleasures and not taking things seriously. In one hand she wants the glory and benefits of being a winner, but in the other she doesn’t want to put in the hard work to get there.

During the second act of the movie, the athlete faces a loss (Pluto) and then it meets a hard trainer which is very much tough love (Saturn) in order to get our athlete in shape with hardcore discipline and responsibility and a strong strategy (Mercury) in place.  It won’t be easy, she suffers through the training, but once she wins the competition she will know it was all worth it.

That my friends it’s the energy coming up this week. Are you ready to train, stay focused and get in shape ? Or are you going to give up on your dream ?

 


Weekly Forecast August 30th to September 5th

Sunday 30

Mercury opposes Neptune

We are finally at the end of August and vacations are almost at the end, we can’ deny back to work is in our minds. In one side Mercury is already ready to go, he has been waiting for this for a while now. He has bought the new planner, a cute to-do list paper, new colorful pens, a new calendar and already set in the dates that are important. He cleaned his table and he is ready to get down to business. On the opposite side we have Neptune who is not ready for that yet. Neptune wants to invite friends over, drink some more Sangrias, share kisses and hugs even in times of Covid. Neptune is inviting Mercury telling him to relax, enjoy some more, let’s make Summer last longer. In one side Mercury is telling you “no, stay focused, we have work to do ! We are ready !” And on the other Neptune telling you “relax, let’s continue dreaming the year ahead, enjoying as much as we can, besides anything that has become reality,  started in the dream world. Which way should you go ?Since Jupiter, the former ruler of Pisces is in Capricorn trying to create order in the chaos with Saturn, perhaps the best would be to follow Mercury and the Sun in Virgo this time & allow yourself to meet with Neptune at night time to unwind.

Monday 31st

Venus Opposes Pluto

Last week Venus had a wonderful connection to Neptune. Through them we had the opportunity to see beauty in the world, to dream of our most wonderful desires. In Cancer it wants safety, comfort, emotional security and a nest. Today, however Venus has a meeting with Pluto. In Greek mythology Pluto represents Hades, the God of the underworld, he rules over life and death. Pluto was very powerful, and had a lot of wealth, hence he is feared by many and his strength is overwhelming. Pluto is telling Venus the reality of her dreams. In Capricorn, Pluto removes structures that are useless, it removes the lies and the rosed-color glasses. If you want your desires to happen, you’ll need to do the work to get there. There is no easy way, but the structures need to be in place and the cold reality might not be easy to look at.

Tuesday Sept 1st

Mercury Trines Pluto

 

Pluto again this week brings good messages for Mercury. As the Planet of Death, rebirth, Power and Control, Pluto is clearing the way for Mercury to work at its best. Mercury will have clear space to think, analyze and improve so it can reclaim its power. Pluto is destroying the structures and stablished ideas that have been stopping Mercury to move forward into perfecting its plan. In a way this will be experienced in an easier way because there is good communication between the two. So what beliefs, systems, traditions and ideas have been stopping you for making progress in you advancement to achieve your goals ? Remember Mercury is about the mind, so this reflects on your strategic planning.

Wednesday Sept 2nd

Full Moon 10° Pisces

The Full Moon in Pisces is closing a cycle we started in February 2020. Where were you then and where are you now ? Pisces is all about unconditional love, dissolving boundaries, bringing people together, equality and unification. It is about love, compassion, sorority & fraternity. Pisces is spiritual and dreamy, artistic and idealistic. The Sun in Virgo is focused on separating what’s good from what’s bad, what needs to be improved and purified. The Sabian Symbol for the Moon is “Men Traveling A Narrow Path, Seeking Illumination” – The Sun is asking are you on the right path ? What do you carry in your back back that is still too heavy ? The Sun is showing to the Moon this is the progress you’ve made, these are the lessons and this is what you need to let go of in order to perfect yourself so that you can experience unconditional love inside and out.

Sun Trines Uranus

At the same time the Sun makes a harmonious aspect to Uranus and we have the opportunity to exerce our freedom or even to experience an ah-ha moment (Uranus) which can liberate us some how. The Sun focused on it’s routine and perfecting itself in Virgo receives a visit from Uranus who brings an unexpected solution, or completely radical view on the matter that can help the Sun move ahead. As quickly as Uranus comes, it goes. So pay attention because in Uranus in Taurus is not as loud as it would have been in another sign. Keep heart, ears and eyes opened to new information coming your way, you might just stumble across the solution you were seeking.

Venus Opposes Saturn

Venus is having a rough time after being in dreamy Neptune. After Pluto comes to give her the hard truth about her desires she is now faced with heavy Saturn who will not let her get away with her responsibilities. Like a bad hangover day when you have to go to work despite your massive headache. Venus rules, love, beauty and finances, Saturn rules structures, governments, discipline and responsibility. Wherever Venus has been frivolous with love and finances (Under the influence of Neptune), Saturn is here to tell her that every action has a reaction. Saturn brings the rules of Karma. Everything you do and want has a price. Saturn is strong in Capricorn and it might pull the scale towards his side. We might feel quite emotional about this since Venus is in Cancer, the house of the Moon which rules over our emotional realm and feeling of security. Get your finances in check, be responsible about it and remember the power is in you.

Thursday Sept 3rd

Mercury Square N.N

Mercury continues traveling on Virgo’s path, leading the Sun. Just a few days before it moves into more harmonious grounds in Libra, Mercury creates tension with the Moon’s North Node in Gemini, also ruled by Mercury. In Gemini Mercury is more concerned with sharing information and learning, in Virgo it wants to create systems and analyze everything. This tension will help us move towards the North Node, which is our collective destiny path for the next 1,5 year (approx). This means, that perhaps we have spent too much time analyzing and it’s time to start sharing the information we’ve perfected while we have been in Mercury.

Mercury Trines Saturn

Mercury fors a harmonious aspect with Saturn. Since the blocks have been removed by Pluto, now Mercury is free to bring in new structures, new traditions and create new foundations to build it’s master plan. It’s like after a full season in Virgo, it finally gets the perfect structure and strategy for its plan. After perfecting itself, Mercury is finally ready to go into Libra to find the right partner to help him achieve his purpose in business or in love.

Friday Sept 4th

Venus Square Mars & Mercury Sextiles Venus

After gaining clarity about the lies it was telling itself, paying its debt, Venus is pressured by Mars to take action. In a challenging Square, Venus and Mars meet with tension. In one side Venus is still focused on the home but Mars in Aries wants to take action and move forward. Mars is strong in Aries and perhaps taking a step forward might just be what Venus needs to get back on track and find beauty again. At the same time, Mercury brings new information to Venus which might just show her a new opportunity she can take to help her in this day.

Saturday Sept 5th

Mercury Moves into Libra

Mercury finally moves into Libra where it feels comfortable in an air sign. Here Mercury becomes more concerned with relationships, beauty and harmony. It wants to create balance and find the right words to convey its message. His focus shifts to communicating in a clear harmonious way. At the same time, it takes of his nose of the nitty gritty details and the desire to perfect everything as it was in Virgo and it opens itself to see the broader picture. What new sides and new perspectives can it consider, is there a way that it can find more balance ?

Find Your Purpose with Astrology

Find Your Purpose with Astrology

I remember growing up and reading in the magazines how Leo Sun people are the life of the party, performers by nature and attention seekers with a keen predisposition for drama and being self-centered. With a description like that, the Pisces rising that I am hated being a Leo. It was not until I started learning Astrology and understanding that the archetypal messages and systems (which are a bit more complex than a general horoscope thrown in a Women’s magazine to say the least), that I started to understand the importance of my Sun sign in my life purpose.

I realize through my work that a lot of people find it hard to relate directly to their Sun Signs and that’s precisely one of the key elements to our life purpose. In this post I’m going to share with you why your Sun sign plays a major role in your life purpose but it’s not the only player in the game. 

Before we start, go ahead and grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me for this ride. 

The Sun is the central star and point of our Solar System. It’s a bit redundant I know, but it is very important to understand its meaning. It is the central point, the focal point and from where all the light comes and touches the Earth. Without the Sun there would be no life on Earth as we know it. Therefore, your Sun sign is your true essence, it is what you do that makes you feel totally who you are, it is your inner shining light. 

But get too close to the Sun you’ll get sunburnt.

Take my example: a natural performer, attention seeker… I really didn’t connect to this, until I understood that this meant using my personality in everything I do. My life purpose is to shine my light into all I do, making sure that my persona (my Sun) stands out in all aspects of my life. Not easy when you are insecure girl like I was when I was dipping my feet in Astrology. 

For other signs, the Sun might not be as out there as it is for Leo Sun people. This is a matter of planetary rulership which is a bit more complex subject. But for the purposes of this post let’s just say that everyone’s Life Purpose is to fully embrace the light of their Sun Signs, whether it is in Pisces, Taurus, Aquarius, Aries or any of the 12 zodiac signs. 

Done ! 

Nah I’m just kidding

Of course that’s easy to say but HOW do we do that ?

That’s the real question !

I won’t lie to you. It is pretty hard going to our essence… We are made of emotions (Moon), ideas (Mercury), Desires (Venus), Motivations (Mars) , expansion (Jupiter), Restrictions (Saturn), Revolution (Uranus), Dreams (Neptune), Transformations (Pluto) and all of these together don’t always agree on HOW we are to become the light of our Sun. That is why understanding how all of these planets are working (or not) together in your Natal Chart is primordial. This is the way we understand how your life purpose is supposed to manifest itself in your life. 

Through Astrology you can learn to embrace it and make it a beautiful journey rather than something you are fighting against. It’s like the sunscreen and hat you need in order to start getting used to staying in your light. 

The first step is to understand through which Zodiac sign is your Sun speaking and where does it like to express itself (which area of your life). Then we work with the dynamics of each planet, how they interact, help each other or not. We take a close look at what we call the Angles in your chart to understand what role your Ascendant (the zodiac sign that was rising in the horizon the moment you were born) is asking you to assume in this life, and which direction you should take that will your bring you the most growth with your North Node. 

Your Midheaven, or Career Line will tell us how you are recognized socially for what you bring into the world. Combine all of these to your the asteroid Chiron your deepest insecurities and how you can help others, and your Part of Fortune (what brings you the most luck) and THERE we are starting to get a full picture on HOW to fully shine your Sun and thus step in fully into your life purpose. >> Click here to read how I run my Astrology Consultations. 

Astrology is a mirror of your life and it’s a journey. Each time you come to it you will understand a bit more about yourself and your purpose. It carries the blueprint of your potential and it’s up to you to harness it. Sometimes you’ll be ready to understand certain messages that didn’t quite resonate a first time.

There is divine timing for everything in life. You can’t force a flower to blossom in the winter, it will just not happen. Same goes with understanding your Natal Chart. But you can start feeling it, getting to know it and spending time with it so you witness and when it’s blooming at its fullest. 

I hope I’ve managed to help you understand why your Sun sign has a major role in your life purpose but it’s the only key to unlocking it.

Back on track or wait for it- Astro Forecast Week August 23rd to 29th 2020

Hello dear Moon Watchers,

While I sit here with my coffee replacement made of cereals and Chicoré – with a little bit of a headache (I must admit) – I look at the energies coming up next week and I can’t decide how to feel about it.  Part of me is excited about them, I want to know how they’ll play out in my life, but part of me Is also wishing for some slower moving energy.

Perhaps it is the fact that all the outer planets are in retrograde (as of the moment Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto), or simply the urge that we feel from Mars pushing us into action before it goes retrograde in September. I guess 2020 will not let us truly relax until the very end. 

In any case this is a very important week astrologically as Mars will form it’s first (Of three) Square to Saturn so the tension is building up quite a lot. As it happens with squares, we will be taken in one direction or another wether we like it or not. This is a way of the Universe of making us move in the path we need to be following right now and correct our course of action. Are you in the right path, or have you strayed away from it ? We will soon find out. 

Check out this week’s forecast below : 


Weekly Forecast August 23rd to 29th

Sunday 23rd

Void of the Moon in Scorpio

Sundays are wonderful days to do nothing, just relax and take time to enjoy life. We are starting the week with a short Void of the Moon in Scorpio inviting us to precisely just that. Relax and leave it at that. Not an ideal day to start new projects, or new adventures, but best to just take a ste

Monday 24th

Mars 26° Aries Squares Saturn Rx 26° Capricorn

Mars the planet of out drive and motivation kicks off the week building up tension with Saturn. This is the first of three squares happening between these two planets, and most likely we will feel the first one with more strength. In one hand we have Mars which in its home sign Aries likes to move fast, get things done and just blaze through it’s goals. It’s an impulsive, action oriented planet. Saturn on the other hand, likes order, step by step approach and specially discipline and responsibility. Saturn wants to keep the structures that are in place, Mars just want to move as fast as possible and fight for what it wants. Squares tend to takes us in a direction of movement. Possibly we may feel more energized to go forward with our goals (Mars) and we will need to get a structure in place in order to do so (Saturn). Another option is we will feel restricted and frustrated in the advancement of our goals and desires. Saturn in this case will be making Mars sit down and have a deserved lecture about responsibility and discipline versus impulsiveness. Either way, these energies are strong and we can feel them personally and collectively. The first time is the hardest, the other two will be easier because we will know what is coming for us. The second square happens on September 29th, 2020 and the last one in January 12th 2021.

Tuesday 25th

Mercury 10° Virgo Trines Uranus 10° Taurus

Mercury in Virgo, leaves the chattiness of Gemini to become analytical and systematic. When It is in harmony with Uranus Retrograde in Taurus, we are focusing our minds into new ways of thinking the future and thinking outside of the box. Uranus likes originality and will certainly bring that into the Mercurial mind. 

Venus  17° Cancer opposes Jupiter 17° Capricorn Rx

Venus the planet of our desires, love, beauty and finances while it enjoys its emotional and nesting time in Cancer is Opposing Jupiter In Capricorn who is more concerned with career, business and structures. Although we might desire to stay at the comfort of our homes, we might feel pulled to act in the realms of our career To bring growth to it. Tough choice, the key here is to find a balance between the two. 

First Quarter Moon 🌝  in Sagittarius 0° 

As we continue this busy Tuesday, we have our first quarter moon in 0° Sagittarius. This is the opportunity to start acting on the first steps of what we have seeded during the New Moon in Leo or back in the New Moon in Sagittarius late November 2019 (can you remember ?). Sagittarius wants to expand the mind, the beliefs and follow the path of adventure. It is ruled by Jupiter, known as the great Teacher. With the Fire energy of inspiration and action, it brings lightness and enthusiasm to your life and a desire to learn new things and experience life to the maximum.

The Sabian Symbol for this First Quarter Moon is : « Retired Army Veterans Gather To Reawaken Old Memories »  and doesn’t it feel exactly like this ? As if after more than 6 months of waiting, slowly moving we are somehow remembering where we were back then ? I really invite you to look back to late November last year and take note of your progress.

Thursday 27th

Mars 26° Aries Sextiles North Node 26° Gemini

After getting so much tension from Saturn, Mars has an opportunity shown by the North Node in Gemini. A door for us to step into our future destiny opens and it’s our chance to seize it.

Venus 19° Cancer Trines Neptune 19° Pisces Rx

At the same time, Venus in Cancer Trining Neptune in Pisces might just gives a feeling of daydreaming and imagining what we want for our dream life. Ideally with these two energies we would be able allow some time to dream what we want, but also be aware of the opportunity to act that shows up to us.

Saturday 29th

Mercury 17° Virgo Trines Jupiter 17°Capricorn Rx

Finally on Saturday, Mercury forms a harmonious aspect with Jupiter, our minds expanding in the direction of creating a detailed plan for us to follow through to achieve our goals.
