Queer elders

 

Our last Astro Tattoo session in Victoria was with our queer elder who turns 73 when the Moon is next new & Uranus enters Taurus. To mark the change she feels coming she got her 1st ever tattoo! ✨

 
The more we do this project, the more profound I realise it is. To be able to sit with one of our elders, who was born when the world was a different place & look back at transits to her life & changes in the world was an honour.

 
Her 1st Tattoo is just for her, representing her past, present & future, laid out through the beautiful symbolism of astrology & reflected back in story & now as a beautiful reminder in her body. #blowsmeaway

 
🎶 Each session we listen to hits of the year you were born, as those songs were born & new in this world when you were. In this case we listened to the hits of 1945.🎶

 
For a world just emerging from war, the sounds were very relaxing. It was a time when people sat & listened to music, not in passing, but to a whole record, gathered round together. It was a defo change of pace from the 80’s & 90’s playlists that we often play.

 
We start the Salt Spring leg of our #islandtour today. The energy of the land here is palpable…& the way landscape shapes people & their energy is a welcome change to our city vibes.

• BE YOUR OWN ALGORITHM •
Taurus season is such a good reminder to get back to ourselves. Root yourself in your own personal rhythms to make sure what you’re doing, & who you’re doing it with, all align with your values & integrity.
You don’t need to carry a mountain of crystal to stay grounded if you’re connected with yourself ✨.
🌏 The Earth is not grounded on something solid. It’s a perfect rock hanging in space, containing its own rhythms & cycles which support life. 🌱🌿🌲🌳🌴🍁🍂
Chasing anything outside ourselves will only do just that: take us away from ourselves. Come home in Taurus season so you have something real to talk about in Gemini Season.

The lights are on but no one’s home

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.
