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?

Consciousness has no hierarchy

 

 

We are all these Sunflowers. We all have a physical manifestation that we move through the world with, and yet, there’s also a subtle vibration pouring from each of us at every moment. 

 

THERE IS NO LADDER OF HIERARCHY IN CONSCIOUSNESS.

 

The psychic airs are so thick and heavy right now. It can feel so hard to push through the fear and sense of impending doom, wherever in the world we are. The more I sit in this heaviness, the more I’m drawn toward understanding consciousness. Not with the mind or intellect, in being.

 

Uranus in Taurus is offering us just this. Uranus is an agitator, an awakener, forever pushing us toward freedom. In this Taurus case, we’re being given the opportunity to free ourselves from habituation, from the limitation of the body and being tied to material concerns. That doesn’t mean we check out, stop giving a shit, stop wearing clothes and give away all our money (though you can if that’s your jam.)

 

It means something different for everyone, but the vehicle that gets us there is very simple: listen to your own needs, your own inner dialogue and have boundaries that shield you from being saturated by the outside noise. Make space for your divine sound to pour forth and change this dominant, fear-based narrative. 

 

Taurus gets comfortable. It loves a groove…but grooves become ruts which become trenches that we find hard to dig ourselves out of. We’re all being uprooted. We’re all re-evaluating our worth and what we invest time, energy and money into. It doesn’t make sense that the structures that support us also undermine us. This change is destabilizing and necessary. Look to what you’re clinging to and what’s being challenged to change.

 

The noise in the world, on social media is SO. LOUD. It doesn’t matter if it’s from the left or the right, red or blue, Liberal – National – Labour – everyone’s yelling. Make space for your Sunflower sound. Plug in and let it out.

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.

When I teach Astrology, I ask students to come to the first class with their theme song. What is THAT song, when yr walking down the street, headphones on & it’s YOUR song?
Not surprisingly, there’s often a correlation between that song & your chart…& ice-breakers suck so it’s a fun way to introduce yourself.

My song is ‘Don’t stop me now,’ by Queen – for obvious reasons – and because I’m continuously inspired by Freddie & his energy & charisma & his art. .

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FREDDIE. You personify the hard work & dedication of practice that makes Virgo so deeply magical.

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.

The thing about the desert is that it holds the memory of the Ocean. The thing about water is that it never forgets. 🌊🏜 💎
No matter when we exist throughout history, all living beings seek shelter and safety. While Aries (the 1st Cardinal sign) is out hunting, fearlessly gathering food, Cancer is creating our home, stoking the hearth fire so that we can all be nourished by togetherness under the same roof. It knows that if we don’t have each other, we will not survive.
💎
In 2018, we may not be setting up home in a cave on the side of a rock, but our needs are no different to those of our ancestors. As social creatures, we all seek to belong, to be nourished, to protect and be protected.
💎
This eclipse on July 12th activates our basic instincts, & in this there is increased potential for projection. There can be the desire to cut coldly that which has rejected us, threatened our survival and undermined our need to belong. The challenge is to sit in any uncomfortableness without reaction or retaliation.
💎
When we say things are cool but they’re eating away at our very need to belong, we undermine ourselves and gaslight those we actually care about. …read the full Crystalscope HERE.
