Week 18, 2017

Hello stargazers!

Let’s get right into the day-by-day program for the 18th week of 2017.

Sunday is putting us into the the middle part of Taurus!  We know that each sign has three sections and in this third part of Taurus is all about material prosperity, wealth, generosity and charity!  It is also the opposite unfortunately - deprivation, poverty, greed and entitlement!  There is a lot of both going around, we just need to put our focus on one or the other.  So here’s the deal - everyday builds upon the next - this is what life's all about and astrology is no different.  We want to BUILD (a quality of Taurus) upon the first decan of Taurus (which was from April 20 - April 30) which asked us to access the inner light within and connect with that.

Once we do this, we can be RICH in the spiritual realm, which will of course, manifest in the physical world.  If we fail to do this, we remain broke and in deprivation - we will always get that which we put out.  If we are on the outside still looking in, then it’s always good to access the inner light within.  Then we can start to tune into the positive voice within and block out the negative thoughts that Taurus so often has (other self and others!)  Jealously during the next 10 days needs to be monitored and avoided.  Rather, focus on sharing and balancing what you have!  A way better way to spend your energy!

Monday is the first of May.  There could be a lot of judgements flying back and forth, between family even.  This could also be at work.  My best, to the point advice, is going to be: remember that what you don’t like in others is a reflection of an aspect of yourself and vice versa.  So don’t take things personal, no matter how tempting the emotional aspects may seem.

Tuesday is highlighting our ability to breakdown the mental structures that define our self projections as well as our realities.  What did this mean.  Well, we may encounter a situation which ask us to restrain from defaulting to our long held p.o.v.  Look for the occasions that you are triggered or annoyed, that's where you will find this opportunity to restrict and thereby break free of old mental constructs.  Once we do this, we will be able to access new fresh energy and the excitement of the new.  It's about controlling our animal nature and it's ability to influences our thoughts as well as our actions.

Wednesday mercury goes direct!  Things can be totally haywire before and after so don't stress if the direct effects aren't immediate.  Mercury traveled back into Aries, so we have a bit of time travel into the past and we now headed back to the Taurus energy.  Now what's especially great about this Wednesday is that we are beginning a new cycle of intention!  Set your intentions and submit them to the creative process and be done with it!  There is a strong possibility for manifestation as long as we remain disciplined with our thoughts.  I strongly suggest using the energy from Tuesday to build upon this (astrologically speaking, the transits of Wednesday are built upon Tuesday).

Thursday is another big one.  First of all, we are looking within into how we can open our heart and extend loving kindness to others.  Also, we are being asked to empower ourselves by relinquishing the power we give others over us to be “loved”.  If we even want to do that.  Finally, this will give new meaning to our world and our capacity to love and appreciate.  I can only hope that this isn't too much of a burden, but a lot wants to be revealed here, and the rewards are just…..lovely!

Friday effortlessly builds upon the energy of Thursday.  If we are doing it right, we are upgrading our definition of love and understanding a new meaning about tough love.  There could be some enlightening new understanding about an intense situation that happened in the past that has to do with some female figure in your life, such as your mother.  Perfect for Mother's Day!

Saturday is as always the cumulative energy of the week.  It's a day to really heal from the week and we might be forced too if we are not taking the time to relax.  We also could download some great new inspiration in this relaxation, so keep a pen handy to jot down some great ideas.  Sometimes we need to utilize discipline to relax, and in this way, we activate the new.

So, this week:

  • Access the inner light/voice within.
  • Avoid jealousy.
  • Don't take things personal.
  • Break free of old mental structures.
  • We are controlling animal nature.
  • Activating an open heart for others.
  • Upgrading our definition of the word, “love”.
  • Making time to relax on Saturday.
  • Watch my video on Taurus.
  • Subscribe to my twitter feed!
  • Listen to my Taurus Spotify Playlist

In my weekly write-ups, I refrain from using “astrological jargon” because it really doesn't make sense to people who know nothing about archetypal astrology.  But I do indicate my science in the footer.  General transit forecasts tell us what is going on in the world and how people are acting in general.  Detailed and specific forecasts are of course read in relation to your birth chart.  Meanwhile, if you want a more detailed explanation of where these energies are manifesting specifically for you, book a dash astrology session with me.
