Keep On Projecting Optimal Potential.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 2
January 2, 2018 - January 13, 2018

Every day (except Saturday) of this week will echo throughout the year.  We are now focusing on 2nd half of 2018, from Summer to Winter.  Read my first 12 days of January Alignment Tips: Buon Appetito 2018.

Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork.  It’s time to understand that it is irresponsible to try to do everything on our own.  We all need help if we want our projects to be successful.  We also need to ask ourselves, “is it that we want to be successful, or that we want our projects to be successful?”

The answer to this question may tell us where we stand with our ambition.  Think about the difference between the two.  There is no wrong answer, only a reflection to be revealed.

Our desire nature this week wants to work with others, but we will need to overcome our need to be right and change others.  First, we can only change ourselves, as we have learned last week.  Rather than going for “being right”, we should honor another for their perspective.  Otherwise, we may become angry and competitive.

When we drop into the level of competition, we lose sight of what we are working for and seek to rather be better than others.  Not only that, but it robs us of creativity.
 

The lesson is that we should only be competitive with ourselves.  What does this entirely mean?

It means that we have many archetypes existing within us, as well as the many identities we take on the course of the day, as reflected by our user handles, job titles, private names, etc.  We wouldn’t talk to a client in the way we would speak to our 5-year old child, as each identity has its own agenda and way of doing things.

Ideally, we retain our morals and values in each area, or house, of our life.  However, if we tend to bend the rules and make exceptions with some people for any reason whatsoever, we give an advantage to an ego identity.  This translates into some ego identities becoming stronger than others.  When we can control and direct this, it’s a great way to go about using and getting rid of what’s holding us back etc.  When it’s “just happening” we can tend to lose ourselves and the identities we enjoy.  It’s like a muscle we no longer use, it will get weak.

So when we are competitive with ourself, we are competitive with our past actions, with outshining the negative ego identities.  Those identities that made limited actions.  This is how we grow beyond ourself and into our next, better version.  It’s also how we maximize and use our chart.

We need to organize our inner identities, specifically, our inner business identity, our inner artistic identity and our inner spiritual identity; and bring them into union.  Allow each to give their 2 cents, and our task is to synergize each input into something greater than the individual parts.

Then we will have something new and unique to contribute.

Wishing us all a very Happy New Year and I thank you for being the one who makes a difference by using dash Astrology.

This week:

  1. Sunday is the atomic level for the entire month of July. We learn to stop being overwhelmed, by sharing with others - on all levels.

  2. Monday is the atomic level for the entire month of August. There is a potential to get ahead, or repeat the same. Avoid nostalgia and editing the truth - we  need to look at what’s there if we want to move forward. We can only share positive emotions if we are clean with our own.

  3. Tuesday is the atomic level for the entire month of September. Union is the only way into ambition. Unify the inner three identities and only compete with our self to access unlimited and transformative creativity.

  4. Wednesday is the atomic level for the entire month of October. We may need to communicate some sort of ending, and let it be. Don’t try to edit or change it. If our heart is in the right place and our actions are not based in delusion, a load will be lifted.

  5. Thursday is the atomic level for the entire month of November. We are adept in juggling what needs to be done in business and ready to think about what’s next. Good business comes from being in the flow and being in the right places at the right time. Allowing the flow is “key-rucial” here!

  6. Friday is the atomic level for the entire month of December. Many cycles are beginning. Money, desire nature and maybe a breakthrough in our individuality. Be loving, be honest and allow this honesty to shine and break the patterns.

  7. Saturday is the accumulation of the week, which encompassed the atomic levels of the last 6 months of 2018.  So here we can re-energize our year with anything we have missed. We have the chance to change the alpha through the omega.

TEAMWORK

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.

Notable transits of the week:
Sunday: Mercury Trine Uranus, Mars Conjunct Jupiter, 
Monday: N. Node square Jupiter/Mars (2 decan Scorpio).
Tuesday: Sun Conjunct Venus, Venus Conjunct Pluto, Sun Conjunct Pluto
Wednesday: Mercury novile Jupiter/Mars conjunction.
Thursday: Mercury Enters Capricorn.
Friday: Venus conjunct Sun/Pluto (3 decan Capricorn) - square Uranus.
Saturday: Mercury Conjunct Saturn, Venus Square Uranus

Project Optimal Potential.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 1
December 31, 2017 - January 6, 2018

Every day of this week will echo throughout the year.  Read my first 12 days of January Alignment Tips: Buon Appetito 2018.

It’s time to let go of 2017!  It’s over, we’ll never get it back!  We can contemplate 2017’s lessons all we want, but we will need to let go, and make room for 2018.  Part of this will include freeing ourselves from our favorite judgements that we cast onto others.  We need to realize that the more opinions, judgements and “knowledge” we have about others, the more we limit ourselves.

In other words, if we cannot allow others to be different, then what chance do we stand at being different?  If we want to have a better year, then we need to be better ourselves.  We cannot welcome the new, if we are not new.

Heart and libido are working together as new beginnings are in the air.  As many intentions are usually set around The New Year, we will feel the urge to really act upon our heart’s desire.  Meaning, we will have the courage to step outside of our self-made prisons and really GO FOR IT!

A prerequisite is to project optimal potential.  This means that we need to really see it, and act as if it is already happening.  This is how we can adopt and welcome the changes - but remember, the catch is that we need to be new ourselves.

This doesn't mean wear new socks or eat different food (although it could), because we need to be new on the inside and not just “play dress up” and pretend to be new.  If that newness changes clothing style or diet, GREAT!  Or, if we want to “fake it until I make it”, do it with the intention that the outer changes will awaken inner changes, and they will.

We just need to be careful of fantasizing about where we are and what our real intentions are.  If our intentions are selfish, we will run out of juice, so a good intention to set could be how to become more sharing or selfless.

There is a lot of potential for attracting money this week too.  Money wants to flow in, which is nice because this year we will see a complete change in our we relate to money and how it is used in our world, so brace yourselves for that around May of 2018.

We are now expressing our individual innovation and let’s all ask for the inspiration to create our solutions rather than compete with others.  

Be sure to read about the SuperMoon which will occur on the Monday, New Year’s Day.  Also, there is a very important alignment to follow during the first 12 days of January which can be read about here.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and I thank you for being the one who makes a difference by using dash Astrology.

This week:

  1. Sunday: We are in the final stages of coming together for a greater purpose. Let go of the old.

  2. Monday: Emotions are high! Write down what you want to master. Today is the atomic level for the entire month of January, make it a good one!  This year will go down in history.

  3. Tuesday is the atomic level for the entire month of February. We are now expressing our individual innovation and let’s all ask for the inspiration to create our solutions rather than compete with others.  

  4. Wednesday is the atomic level for the entire month of March. Boundaries, Boundaries, Boundaries! Hold your ground and don’t focus on old wounds. Move forward and don’t let thinking about the past hold you hostage.

  5. Thursday is the atomic level for the entire month of April. Sharing is caring, open your heart, and take action from what comes out!

  6. Friday is the atomic level for the entire month of May. Shine your light. Working harmoniously with other identities, including your own. So much creativity in the air, make something beautiful and illuminating - it’s just the beginning.

  7. Saturday is the atomic level for the entire month of June. If we can juggle left and right without dropping the ball, we will see how easy it is to maintain harmony in the face of changes. Remember: “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors”.

Happy 2018!

Largest Full Moon of 2018!

Get ready to ring in the New Year with something far more illuminating than fireworks in the night’s sky.  On January 1st, 2018 at 6:23 PM (PST) there will be a Full Moon in Cancer.  Use this time converter to find the time of this lunation in your time zone.

What’s very special about this Full Moon is that the moon will be very close to the earth, making the moon appear larger than normal.  In astronomy, this is called a perigee syzygy, and in astrology we call this a SuperMoon.

The perigee (which means near earth), will occur hours before the Full Moon, at just 356,565 kilometers away from earth making it the closest perigee and SuperMoon of 2018.  What a way to kick off the New Year on this first day!  What's more is that this Moon is also called, the "Wolf Moon" which is really making a howl right from the start.  This is very auspicious as we will soon enter the Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog and we know that all dogs are descendants of the wolf.

We also know that January 1st is the seed level of the entire year so what is this telling us?

Well, we need to look at the archetypes at play.

First, when we take the number 356,565 (which is the number of kilometers the moon will be from earth) and break it down, we get the number 3, which is all about creativity, abundance, multiplication, and increase.  We use kilometers because NASA does.

The number 3 rules the planet Venus, and when we look at the chart of the SuperMoon we find that Venus will be conjunct the Sun as well as opposite the Moon.  This actually raises mother issues for all, and as we all have a mother, we need to be aware of the challenges that could come to light now and for the rest of the year.  It’s about holding onto chaos or celebrating freedom.  I know this is a lot to process, but we have a year to work with this energy arising.  We will want to resolve mother issues, either being a mother or with our actual mother.

This is, of course, only one interpretation.  On the abstract level, we are being creatively challenged with how we perceive and handle our world.  It is our task to really find harmony in change more than ever.  As a society, we are so geared to reading about the latest advancements in science and technology, and even line up to get the latest iPhone every year, but how well do we welcome change in our own life?  It’s really about changing that which we think should remain the unchanged.  We are all being confronted with an area we are unaware of that will ask us to change it.

If, on the other hand, are on a spiritual path, meaning mindful, open, and honest, then we probably already have a good idea of the changes we need to make to align with harmony.  Remember, harmony will always prevail over the ego and it’s comfort zones, etc.  Let’s try to be proactive in this respect.  In dash Astrology, we want to always remain ahead of the curve to transcend the astrological effects as they are arising.  So I want to mention that maybe you have been preparing for this in the preceding weeks, and now you know why.

This SuperMoon will occur in Cancer.  Cancer is ruled by The Chariot archetype which is the vehicle of the divine expressing itself through us.  It symbolizes our body, our home, and the physical manifestation of the essential self in a unique and perfect way.  Biologically speaking, Cancer rules over speech, the stomach, the breasts and chest as well as the disease, Cancer.  So we have a very healing Full Moon on New Year’s Day.

There could be scientific advancements, or maybe even the cure to Cancer could be revealed and accepted.

Astrologically speaking, Cancer teaches us how to integrate all the archetypal energies, and put them into action.  It is able to do this because of its sensitivity and ability to act out these energies in motion, aka EMOTION.  With Cancer, we need to be careful of feeling overwhelmed and hosting negative energies.  It teaches us how to cleanse negativity and nurture ourselves as well as others into being centered.

The co-ruler of this SuperMoon is Pluto, who is currently transiting Capricorn.  This tells us there is a huge emphasis on leveling up!  Pluto is the planet of judgement and resurrection.  It judges us to the degree we have judged others.  However, Pluto is also the planet of transformation and upgrade.  Pluto wants to wake us up from “The Matrix” as it has the power to move us from a place of darkness into a place of light.

Considering all of the above, we can heal our darkness during the largest SuperMoon of the 2018.  We will need the extra light illuminated on New Year’s Day so that we may direct it wherever needed.

Depending on where this is happening in your birth chart will already give you an idea of where the light will go on its own, without conscious meditation and direction.

Given that perigees are often time of earth shattering and tidal waving phenomena, and given that Cancer rules the coastlines and shores of the earth, I ask for all of us to pray for mercy to avoid any natural disasters, storms or coastal, tidal surges.  If we can help others, we will unlock the celebratory, joyful and fulfilling energy of this SuperMoon in Cancer.

January will have the honor of hosting 2 Full Moons this year: the first on the 1st and the second on the 31st.  Be sure to check out my Astrological Guide on the first 12 days of January to create your New Year!

I recommend using the blend “cancer” as well as “therapy” during this SuperMoon Lunation.
