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.

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.

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.

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.

11:11 ECLIPSE

Screen Shot 2018-01-31 at 8.26.50 PM

 

This Lunar Eclipse is packed full of 11:11 juice! The Sun at 11 degrees Aquarius opposes the Full Moon at 11 degrees Leo. Can you see it??? 🌕❤️🌕

 
Nothing in astrology ever happens in isolation, so when we deal with Leo (our selves, our personal spark and creativity) we also have to consider its effect in the community, the wider world and how we as individuals make up society (Aquarius). The eclipse that occurred last year in August was the first of this Leo-Aquarius series, & they will continue until November 2018.

 
Each eclipse is part of a Saros cycle that has its own flavour and feel; some land like welcome visitors, some destroy all the furniture. This particular series asks us to focus on ideas, dreams and visions, to follow that lead toward what authenticity is for each of us. Listen to what is asking to be born.

 
Eclipses happen 6 months apart and blow up the same part of our chart every eclipse season (Solar & Lunar back-to-back). We can look to see where Leo and Aquarius fall in our chart to understand where all this eclipse energy is directed. We may not have planets in those houses, but the houses represent the areas of life that the shuffling is occurring in.

 
What came up for you last August that is stirring again in a slightly altered state? What would change if you were to lead a completely authentic life? What’s stopping you?

@mizchartreuse – do you want to chime in with some twin flame 11-11 wisdom? 💓💓

 

additional 11:11 wisdom from the ASTRO FLOTUS

“11 symbolizes:
* higher intuition and insight
* duality transcendence
* a gateway to higher dimensions
* instant manifestation
* time loops and matrix glitches
* energetic portals
* illumination and transformation
* a call to master your own life
* the ONEness of the universe

The 11:11 signal is a gateway to new levels of existence. The subtle hint that becomes increasingly pervasive is an invitation to recognize how miraculous everyday life can be.
On this day especially, use the recognition of the 11/11 to become a master of your own affairs—focus your attention on your highest self-expression for the most good. Remember who you truly are as a limit-free being. 💎”

The sky is HOT!

The sky is 💥HOT🔥 right now!

 
The Sun, Venus & don’t-F-with-me Pluto are all in a cuddle puddle throwing stones at Uranus.

 
Mars & Jupiter are in #scorpio helping them scheme about how they can set fire to their ex’s house & not get caught.

 
A few “take 10 breathes then act” will help everything right now…but if you’ve kicked that ex to the curb then keep it that way.

 
🔥❤️ Passions running high can do wonders aimed in the right direction. 💓LOVE THOSE YOU LOVE ~ LAY ON THE LOVE TO THOSE WHO WANT YOU TO THRIVE💓 & don’t burn anyone’s house down – though burning letters & photos is a great act of release at this time. #kbye ✌🏼
