Hades calling

Hades called. There’s a buy one Retrograde get 3 free sale going on. Stocks aren’t limited & participation is compulsory. 💯

We’re still following the funeral procession that was the Full Moon in Scorpio and Saturn has today slammed on the breaks, just days before Venus & Jupiter. In a few days 4 planets will be retrograde. This week will likely throw us for a loop. Think of it like being in a car going around a corner at high speed; don’t try to push against it, lean in & trust your instincts. Find your flow.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Moon in Capricorn is snuggling up to Pluto all day today making sure to rattle any cobwebs of grief & uncertainty you were hoping to ignore.

Lean in. Listen. Watch carefully. Whatever is taking flight right now will likely land as a message further along the road. 💫

🌹SIGN UP IS OPEN for the Venus Rx workshop Jessika Fancy & I are offering. You’ll get weekly Astro-magical-creative guidance to see you through. 🕯💞 See you there!

Incubation

I’ve been thinking about this time that we’re all experiencing together in terms of incubation. It reminds us that while it may appear like we’re doing nothing in the eyes of capitalism, we’re actively nurturing the new world into existence. Incubation allows us to observe the destruction that capitalism has on this living, breathing organism we exist on, as well as the bodies we exist within.

The world over, we’re being forced to do the exact same thing. This virus, like Aquarius, doesn’t discriminate. It takes everyone into consideration, everywhere. No one is spared. Therefore as we look at the world, and ourselves, from the inside out a consciousness shift is occurring. History shows us that major, fundamental changes in society, in how people think and what we think about is almost always accompanied by a collective event that forces the transmutation. It’s also often accompanied by great resistance from those who hold power. 

This incubation means that Capitalisms’ biggest fear can be realised: when our forced participation is halted we have time and space to ask legitimate questions such as, “Why do we work to live and eat?” “Why are we contributing to systems that hurt us and the planet?” “How do we deconstruct the old and build a more inclusive, equitable, respectful new?”  Whether you’re dependent on capitalism or capitalism is dependent on your poverty (financially, spiritually or mentally), the instability and inequality is being exposed and affecting everyone.

Mercury Rx Scorpio Detox

Mercury Retrograde cycles coincide with large numbers of people going offline for a short term reset-detox. It makes sense considering Mercury is the messenger of the cosmos, retrograde periods call us to review, revisit, reset and technology pervades most aspects of daily life.

October 30th, 2019 Mercury digs in its heels and stations at the 28th degree of Scorpio, or the 238th degree of the Zodiac. It will retrograde back to the 12th degree of Scorpio on November 19th. That’s 20 days for you to detox, to call back your inspiration, assess any unhealthy patterns and reset boundaries. The Phoenix you choose to rise as depends on how deep you want to go. It’s your call and you are your only judge.

For the duration of this Mercury Retrograde period I’ll be here offering Merc Perk detox tips, decoding the messages from the Cosmos and watching how the planetary configurations play out on the world stage. It’s a process of slowing down, being present, re-empowering ourselves and consciously composting what needs to be released.

I will continue to share updates throughout this Rx season . I hope you’ll join me on this journey into your own diamond mine reclaiming what has been lost and releasing what has expired.

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.

screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-1-51-16-pm

 

The 2016 East Van Queer Astrology Calendar has been a HUGE success!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated and supported this project. Calendars are now for sale at Heartwood Community Cafe @ 317 East Broadway, Vancouver, BC…and on ETSY for out of province and international orders.

The calendar contains:

  • 49 BABES representing their sun-sign and the East Van queer community
  • Information on how to work with the Moon ~ Lunation Cycle rituals
  • Information on the Sun and Moon moving through signs and elements & how to apply this to your chart
  • Daily motions of the Moon – time specific to PST
  • Important retrograde/direct periods of the planets
  • Full moons / New Moons / Eclipses
  • The final  2 pages are my favorite! Each participant was asked to write one sentence that describes their experience of their sun-sign. No one can know you like you do…and the expressions on these 2 pages are just as dynamic as the images displayed each month.
