Mutable Magic – the changing of seasons

MUTABLE MAGIC

Screen Shot 2018-09-11 at 5.01.30 PM

The mutable signs ~ Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ~ all represent the energy of the changing seasons.

There’s been an irritability in the air. Not of the Mars variety where we could blow our top. It’s based in the mutable energy of change that doesn’t let us settle. 

Mutable signs remind us that change is necessary. Stagnation is not an option and remaining in the past lacks vitality. In such unpredictable and often volatile times, we seek the security of things unchanging. Change represents chaos, and chaos reminds us that we don’t have control. But chaos is from where life emerges. It’s the void that contains the all; where we come from and to where we all return.

Each Mutable sign follows a Fixed sign. The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) represent the peak of a season. There is no denying in February that we’re in the depths of Winter in the Nth Hemisphere – and the height of Summer in the South. 

Fixed energy is sure and stable. It’s the foundation stones upon which we build life. Mutable signs, however, transition us from this stability, simultaneously aware of what it’s emerging from and heading toward. Moving, changing, gathering information, mutability is never still, never stagnant. Always curious and of service.

Mutable signs gather the information we need to transition to the peak of our potential. They are the gate keepers to the Solstice and Equinox. They are the changing of the guard from one season to another. It is both receptive and dynamic.

A snake sheds its skin before it emerges anew. The energy of change can be uncomfortable because we can’t rest and we have no guarantee of what’s to come. We have to lean into trust and roll with the energy of now. 

This particular mutable season is within the veil of a Venus Retrograde cycle. The energy of change is more potent because we’re being asked to look at what we’re going to leave behind in the Underworld. We will take a Phoenix journey down and through Scorpio’s lair. If you’re struggling against the winds of change right now, ask yourself what you’re holding onto and why. What is lingering from your past that’s draining your vitality?

There is endurance to mutable energy. It has the ability to adapt. To bend and not break. Take this tree wisdom with you though the Underwolrld. We’re all going together. No one is spared.

2018 Astrology workshop

Working with the Astrology of 2018

 

Astro Workshop add

With Venus taking us down to the Underworld in her pentacle creating retrograde cycle, and Mercury throwing us for a loop when it retrogrades in Sagittarius & Scorpio…while the Eclipse Cycle is changing signs…

…how do we keep going forward when the planets are taking us backwards?

 

What is this workshop about?

In this workshop, Dru will walk you through the astrological events of each month remaining in 2018.

It will offer you tools for how to work with the planets via understanding of where they are kicking up dust in your own chart.

We will break down the meaning of retrograde cycles, eclipse seasons, what it means to have both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and what all this intense planetary activity is building toward.

Participants who sign up will each receive a workbook tailored to their own astrological chart.

The psychic airs are thick

Screen Shot 2018-09-11 at 4.47.10 PM

 

CAN YOU FEEL IT?!

The psychic airs are thick right now. Don’t deny your intuition. Don’t dilute your magic!
We’ve just slipped through the veil of the upcoming VENUS RETROGRADE cycle & the whispers are circling right in front of us! #scorpiorealness

With Saturn grinding to a hault this week, earthly reality can be challenging (to say the least), so keep those psychic – dream – messenger channels open to help guide the way.

We’re heading to the Underworld. Keep clear about what & who is going with you.

Pisces Full Moon deep dive

Screen Shot 2018-09-11 at 4.41.31 PM

 

These Pisces Full Moon feels run deep & there’s much to be crafted from this energy.

The ocean’s water & the ocean bed have a symbiotic relationship; both shift & change shape with each other, because of each other, for each other.

This is Pisces. 🐋

Pisces is not in it for itself…because Pisces is aware that it IS EVERYTHING. From our ocean bed to the layers of consciousness, Pisces is everywhere & everything at once. #mutablemagic

This Full Moon comes with a Grand Earth trine that offers us the opportunity to not get disoriented in this expanse, but to make something from it, to make something of it.

Without Earth, water lacks definition. Without water, Earth is barren – a disaster for an element that knows how to produce.

Take these Pisces feels & make Virgo proud! Channel this energy through your hands & bring the energy down to Earth.

…and contact Jessika Fancy if you want an Orca print!

Leo New Moon Eclipse

Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 10.34.43 PM

 

The final eclipse in the Leo~ Aquarius trilogy is just whispering by us & the seeds for change & rebirth are ours to release.
🌱🐣🦋☀️

 

Holding this energy close, sitting in our own 💩 & trying to work out which way is forward with SIX PLANETS retrograde can feel like a lot if yr trying.
The 🌞 Leo Sun is not at the centre of the solar system TRYING to shine, it’s blazing from the core of its being, wherever it’s at.

 
What have you learnt about being more authentically YOU since that big eclipse last September? How can you come at life straight from the heart with fierce compassion…wherever you’re at? 💖⚔️💎

 
The next set of eclipses will feel completely different, so dream those dreams & set those intentions now because they will be the shoes you step into & walk through the tests of Saturn in.

Leo spark!

☀️ LEO SEASON is not about anyone else. It’s not about seeking approval. It’s not about uprooting yourself from your values & self worth on a quest to be loved.

#leo is about coming home to ourselves; honouring the unique spark that we have to offer the world, & sharing that from a place of understanding our importance in this cosmic design. #radiate

When you board a cross~country train while Mercury’s retrograde wearing a Mercury~Gemini shirt & the train leaves 7 HOURS late & your seat is facing backwards…so you’re literally retrograding through retrograde season…& then you look out the other window & the universe paints your thoughts in letters on the neighbouring train.

Touch the Earth

Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 11.04.57 PM

 

Of all the adventures I’ve dragged my Sagittarian ass through, this trip is up there with my faves!

The dry heat of the desert, the genuineness of folks in Denver, the stories the Earth shares in Navajo Nation lands…& the welcome relief these Utah salt flats were after feeling gay-unsafe in Wyoming. 🙌🏼💓 Thinking of you #matthewshepard 🔥♐️🔥 .
As we welcome the Sun into Leo today, this Mars Retrograde is only gunna get hotter & dryer. If you feel like yr going to loose yr shit or bite the hook this month, touch the Earth & ground yourself.
Leo is about coming back into our most authentic expression of ourselves, without the need of external validation…but remember that fire is too hot to touch. Make choices that make you proud.
