Eclipse undertow

screen shot 2019-01-11 at 4.33.55 pm

The waves that are lapping at our feet right now carry the energy of the eclipse undertow. There’s a purging occurring from the inside out. There are no “little things” this week, they’re pointers to the larger issues lurking below the surface. Don’t look away, & don’t be fooled into thinking you need to control it all.

I know a lot of folks who are sick right now, or tired & depleted. Old energy is resurfacing, exposed into the conscious light of day to be purged. The eclipse this week was wedged between boss lady Saturn & break-down-to-break-through Pluto; we have to release before we can rebuild.

Take note of what you’re being drawn toward, & what you’re being challenged to leave behind – no matter how subtle. When the internet breaks & there’s no external validation…when the poles actually do shift & all you’ve got is what you’ve developed in yourself – what are THOSE things? What are you here to contribute?

We’re deepening our relationship to ourselves so that we inturn show up more authentically in the world. Project yourself forward & ask yourself what you wish you had done & see if it’s on your current to-do list. No connection or circumstance is random. Who you are & what you do now is part of an intricate web system that wants to support you; be conscious of the choices you make now because those seeds will grow.

Mars in Pisces; running in water

Screen Shot 2018-12-18 at 6.26.40 PM

 

Mars loves to run. 🏃🏼‍♂️
Pisces loves to swim. 🏊🏼‍♀️

 
When we combine these two energies, amongst the clusterfuck of everything else going on, we can feel like we’re going nowhere fast.

 
What running in water does do for us is allow mindfulness of the subtleties. It slows us down enough to hear what can be missed when blindly running toward our goals. It’s a reminder of who we take our orders from: external sources of trends, oppressive authorities or algorithms OR from our own innate knowing & wisdom.

 
If yr feeling frustrated, like yr lagging behind & cant keep up, stop trying. Find your flow & realign yourself because Mars will leap into Aries on Jan 1, & like a sling shot, we’ll be catapulted forward in the direction we’re facing.

 
What does your rhythm look like, without external influence?

Venus Rx in Scorpio

Look around to see what is dead or dying. The Venus Retrograde cycle is no joke, and Scorpio does not suffer fools.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-14 at 3.00.14 PM

 

The Venus Rx cycle is a 40 day – 40 night dark night of the soul journey. It’s a fasting and a detox of our values, our relationships, the people and places we’ve poured our love and money and support into…and the stench of death and decay is wafting through.

 

What once brought us joy, vitality and purpose may now be a shell of its former self. We may also find, if we care to have that honest, penetrating look at ourselves, that we’ve outgrown parts of ourselves and moved on, but the situation remains; the vase is still holding up the dead flowers, but no amount of water is going to breathe life back into them.

 

Encompassed in this current Rx cycle is Neptune at the midpoint of its journey through Pisces, and Uranus at the midpoint of the Nodes. Midpoints are a peak of energy where we can look both back and forth; familiar enough with the energy at this stage that we know the pattern, but also aware that maturity beckons in our choices.

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!
