The lights are on but no one’s home

Screen Shot 2018-04-24 at 12.38.40 AM

 

Mercury, Saturn & Pluto are all pretty much stationary right now ~ they’re slowing down to either turn retrograde or go direct. It’s luminal space & it’s thick in the air.
.
This phase can feel like we’re stuck in-between ~ not going forward or backwards, frustrated & lacking clear direction.

.

The soundtrack plays ‘the lights are on but no one’s home’ ~ so don’t push it. Let this be your own personal 🖕🏼 to capitalism that’s always telling us to GO & be ON. Find yr way to make peace with not knowing right now. It will pass.

Is this Mercury retrograde over yet or WHAT?! It seems to be taking foreverrrrrrrrrrr…..
.
This Aries season has been driven by the force of Capricorn since it began! 😢 This retrograde period is a great example of how different Aries & Capricorn are, but also what can be achieved when they work together.
.
Aries is hot & fiesty, impulsive & ready to face any challenge that allows it to express courage! 💥⚡️💥
.
Capricorn, equally driven by a challenge, is more pragmatic in its approach, patient & persistent. 🌱🌳🍂
.
Put them together & you get controlled fire. 🛠🔥🔥🔥🛠
.
The ruler of Aries & this retrograde phase, Mars, is in slow & steady Capricorn. It’s kinda like driving up hill in a low gear; you know you’re gunna get there, but not in a hurry.
.
MERC PERKS: If you’re tearing your hair out waiting for something, or impatiently hurrying projects that are telling you they need more time, you can best use this energy constructively: Make plans for when the energy shifts, create strategy around obstacles & apply some patience & wisdom to anything that’s standing in your way…because there’s a LOT more energy in Capricorn right now & Grandma has been around the block more than any Aries spring chicken! #listentothelessons .
.
Respect your elders, yes, but also respect the fire & creativity you have inside you that is asking for dedication, guidance & care. You deserve that & the end product will have the stamp of sustainability instead of burnout.

Retrograde loop

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 6.23.41 PM

 

As Mercury stations retrograde, I’m noticing a repetition of issues arising from the Venus Retrograde cycle this time last year. Are you?
.
Venus retrograde in Aries 2017 was a hella time. How could we forget!? The descent into the underworld of our own worth posed hard questions about the fine line between our own needs and our needs with an other: #ariesproblems. Facing our shadow, we walked the razors edge toward redemption and self-determination, meeting Chiron deep in the pool of collective pain and wounding, only to arise again with a new definition of self and initiative in relationship. PHEW!

.
It was a lot, and what I’m noticing with Mercury covering that same terrain right now is that unresolved issues from that time are arising…the questions that were unanswered are on the table again, and Aries’ need for space, independence & initiative is HOT!

.
Wherever Aries is in your chart is where this dust is being kicked up. Retrograde times are not to be feared, it’s a time to tie up loose ends, to identify those things that aren’t working for you and to realign yourself with your own path #ariesstyle
.
So, what came up this time last year in the Venus retrograde cycle? What patterns are you seeing re-emerge at this time that need tending to? What is self-determination for you personally and in your relationships? What can’t you ignore anymore? If you had to be the Fool and jump right now, what would that look like? What do you need?
.
Mercury and the Sun will cross paths on April 1st – and you get to define what it means to be the Fool. There are other folks who are more versed on Tarot than I am who could speak to Fool energy in relation to this Aries season & I’d love to hear about it! WHAT IS THE FOOL CARD ABOUT & HOW CAN WE EMBRACE IT AT THIS TIME?! @meowlchemist @dreamy.sea@magichourastrology @aliawalston@abbeyjadetarot 🔮

Aries Season 2018

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 11.43.15 AM

 

 

It’s #ariesseason , Equinox, Spring in the north and Autumn in the south and Mercury is turning retrograde. OOOPH! Where ever you are on the planet, there is a shift in gears at this time.

.
#aries is the initiator of the zodiac – like this image by the magical @jfancydesigns – Aries represents the spark of life, the thing we all require to get up and keep going, the inspiration we need to move through challenges, and the sense of play that reminds us to stay focussed but enjoying the journey. Are you having fun?
.
If you’re like so many people I now right now, the answer is no. The heavy hitters in the sky are really pushing us all. Saturn, Pluto AND Mars are ALL in Capricorn, building toward something you can no doubt feel brewing. The tension needs direction, and this Aries season is no doubt going to test where your energy lies.
.
Mercury is turning retrograde on the 23rd and will keep running backwards all the way to the New Moon on April 15th. Whoa! What a lunation cycle! Following this retrograde period and New moon, Chiron will step from the deep well of collective Pisces pain into “let’s get real about what I’M doing about this” Aries…while the Sun snuggles up to dynamic Uranus for what will no doubt be ‘exciting’ times. OK!
.
Aries! Aries! Aries!
.
This next month is HOT! Sparks fly from fire & when we’re not tending to the fire someone is bound to get burnt. Fire also warms us and inspires us to dream and vision and to put all of our energy into what feeds our spirit.
.
Aries energy is all about getting things going, so instead of being burnt by this fire, set some things in motion in your life. Be daring! Give yourself a challenge! Initiate a project, a self-care routine, write letters to your local MP about where you see injustice, or write love letters to your self. This #retrograde period starts off with Mercury and Venus discussing their place in this revolution. What is being whispered to you at this time about your place in this divine madness of life?
.
If nothing else, let this Aries season remind you of how special and deeply important it is that you are here, participating in the unique way you do, and show up with your own mark of magic.

One for the Cancerians

Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 10.09.55 AM

 

Looks like this ouija board was asking to be born!!! Makes me think of all the Cancerians in the world right now…& anyone with planets in early degrees Cancer.
Seems like the Capricorn’s have been duly warned about Saturn in Capricorn…but what about Cancer!? 😢

.
Saturn opposing your shit can feel like a light in a hallway that has two switches. You’re at one end turning the lights on & ol’ Saturn is down the hall looking straight at you, through you, turning it off.

.
This is not an act of defiance on Saturn’s behalf; that would be Mars. Instead, Saturn turns off the lights so you learn to see in the dark. It tests us. Our fears instantly come to life &, like this ouija board, we get to see the faces of what lies below the surface.

.
This can also devitalise you, leaving you feeling frustrated that things aren’t taking off, & people or circumstances are blocking your way forward. The thing to remember under this influence is that THINGS NEED TO STEP UP OR STEP OFF! #stepoffgeorge

.
I’ll have more to say about this next month as Saturn will hit the breaks, turn Retrograde & come by again to make sure you’re stepping up to your own responsibilities, getting a handle on your fears & addressing what’s coming to the surface. Safety isn’t always found inside that crab shell. You’re being challenged to defend your boundaries & think about what you want to build in the next cycle.

#tbt the last time Mars was in Sagittarius when I got this beautiful bike/horse & I rode all day & all night & jumped in the lake half way home to cool off & JUST KEPT RIIIIDIIIING! 🏹🏍🔥 #dirtyface .
.
This current #marsinsagittarius journey has had a different flavour…with Jupiter digging deep in Scorpio.
.
My adventures have f’sure been more on the internal landscape, appreciating the quiet & listening to the subtleties that resonate just below the surface of everything. The learning is rich.
.

Jupiter knows the score

Screen Shot 2018-03-08 at 4.39.39 PM

JUST BE FABULOUS!

Planets turning RETROGRADE can really throw us for a loop💫. Everything that was on autopilot gets put into an uncomfortable low gear…forcing us to take a look at the finer details. 😣
.
❓Where is Scorpio ♏️ in your chart?! Have things been bubbling to the surface this week that are prompting you to think more about how you’re utilizing your energy in that area of life? 🤔
.
Ol’ Jupiter has been in Scorpio since October 11th. Since then, the truth has come out about unchecked misuse of power, sexual harassment and the depths to which patriarchy and white supremacy dominate our daily existence. On the other hand, we’ve also felt the power of unity 🤜🏼✨🤛🏼 in exposing these truths together, uncovering lies and deceptions and discovering our own power through this transformation and healing, remembering how important it is for us to be engaged and connected.
.
Jupiter wants us to learn, and through this learning it wants us to grow. Whatever shit is hitting your fan this week, take it and use it for compost in the garden of things you’re growing 💩🌱🌹. Let this learning illuminate the things that are still hidden, yet asking to be born. The deep, often unseen but always felt, undercurrents have risen to be part of the daily tide and now is the time to be dealing with what comes up. 💎
.
We have a choice about how we express our power, how we acknowledge our privilege and how we contribute to the kind of world we want to live in. Be fabulous with how you use it. ✨🧜🏼‍♀️🕺🏽💃🏾💅🏼💞

Listening: Pisces Season

This footage from Dylan Winter sums up my feelings of Pisces Season.

picses constelation

 

Pisces season can be a confusing time if we’re not connected. Feeling aimless, lethargic, depressed and despondent can all be sign posts from this deeply intuitive time that we need to reconnect with Source.

.

Pisces is represented by 2 fish swimming in opposing directions. Messengers who are gathering information, one fish is in the dream world, with the ancestors, deep in prayer and gratitude, submerged in the etherial…the other is here on earth, transcribing the messages for us through poetry, song and the subtle messages of birds in the trees and the wind blowing a certain direction. #areyoulistening

.

The universe is always talking to us and through us. Pisces season asks that we listen to the subtleties, that we remember that we’re always connected to that other fish and that we stop running in a million directions only to find what’s inside of us.

.

We are both fishes. Staying connected to what gives us meaning, respecting our dreams and visions and not remaining in one world over the other is imperative to our survival. If we lean too much into the dream world we become ungrounded, unable to stay focussed in the day to day and find it hard to relate. If we lose connection with our intuitive fish and bring all of our energy into this world we become run down, our life lacks meaning and we deem our dreams unimportant. When we feel not worthy, capitalism takes every precious breath out of us for inadequate compensation. #isthiswhatlifeisallabout

.

Whether there’s meaning behind life or not, Pisces season asks that we remember what it is that makes us feel connected, and to honour the processes that the mundane, capitalistic world can’t see or appreciate. We each have the 2 fishes inside of us and by maintaining a clear tether between them we know our truth and we value our insights enough to trust them in guiding us through this daily existence.
