Once in a Super Blue Blood Moon.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 5
January 28, 2018 - February 3, 2018

Hello Stargazers!

We look to the heavens to see what’s making our world spin (on any level!).  This week we have the second full moon of January.  It’s actually a Super Blue Blood Moon.  It’s quite a mouthful, but the coincidence of these three astronomical phenomena hasn't occurred in over 150 years!  Isn’t like grand?  What a unique opportunity!  So how are we to go about it?  Well let’s dive in and see what’s in store.

First off, we are making way through the month of Aquarius, a time when the cosmic weather is lighter and electric.  We are in a state of purification, unpeeling all the layers which cover the truth.  During the month of Aquarius, the naked truth wants to shine.

So, we do this within.  We don’t need to be afraid of what comes up, because we when we deal with the truth, we always have the choice to change whatever it is we unveil.  Many of us mistake self-discovery for some sort of sentencing or punishment.  Maybe we don’t want to change, or maybe we are afraid that if we find out “the truth”, we won’t be able to change it.

That’s just not the case.  In fact, true change can only occur once we know what we are dealing with.  So, please remember that we can always change, but only once we know where we stand with ourselves, or the issue, and (most importantly) accept it.

This leads us to the next phenomenon of the chart: Mars, the planet of our fighting spirit, just entered Sagittarius, the sign of perception.  Ok, so first of all, there is a lot of “fire” energy available.  The normal symptoms this transit can bring is impatience, arrogance, and a perception worth fighting for (even if it’s wrong!).  For example, one expression of this transit expresses itself in situations whenever we don’t take the time to understand something and rather attack the subject altogether.  We all do this.  We don’t “get it”, so we “take it down”.

As stated, maybe we don’t take the time, or we need to really study to form an original thought.  The natural defense is to just “make it wrong” without really knowing what we are talking about.  We didn’t read the memo, and it’s “their fault”.  Mars in Sagittarius, left untamed, can make us really defensive with anything that asks us to understand more.

If we can tame it, then we can access the part of Sagittarius that has a HUGE perception.  With Mars transiting the sign, we can breakdown outdated methods which keep our world small.  Educate yourself and stop blindly following others.

It’s so easy to get caught up into the union of hatred and “being right”.  So, just ask yourself this week, “do I want to be right or do I want to accept the truth?”

Now onto the Super Blue Blood Moon on January 31st.  The moon will be very close to earth, eclipsed by the earth and double strong as it is the second full moon of the month (remember: we had the first  full moon earlier this month).

When the full moon is eclipsed it sort of makes normal full moon rituals weaker!  I have a full moon ritual and workbook available (see below if your interested in getting a copy) which helps us remove obstacles to manifestation.


Full Moon Ritual Workbook


But when the full moon is eclipsed by, essentially our world, we need to work harder to remove these obstacles that we can normally get rid of during a full moon.  BTW: Watch The Super Blue Blood Moon live here.

No need to panic though, because we just need to redirect our usual full moon efforts.

Bluntly put, ego is going to be out of control.  It’s going to try to overshadow good news, recent rewards, victories and the humorous side of life.

All we need to do is remember this.  It will pass.  It might feel a little bit heavy, but remember it’s just a transit and thereby transitory (as I always say).  Try to access the humorous side and recall the good news.

Now, if we can manage that, we will be able to unveil the hidden beauties that a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse has to offer.  Although the ego will have all the attention (as the sun will upstage the moon), this means we can put all our attention onto the Sun.  The opportunity is unique in that we can de-energize negative karma that is keeping us from moving on.  It’s the day to move on.  It’s time to release the past, time to really let go of the old paths and really commit to the new passages.  After doing that, we can celebrate them to the fullest extent when the full moon is over.

We all have something we really need to let go of once and for all.  That thing that keeps us from our true north.  Then we will begin to build.

Have a wonderful week and I thank you for being the one who makes a difference by using dash Astrology.

This week breakdown (and notable transits):

  1. Sunday: There could be some unexpected healing going on today, especially in regards to our words. Maybe we have learned by now that gossip and slander only bring pain and suffering. Sun in 1st decan Aquarius semi-square Chiron.
  2. Monday: Today is a beautiful day of yin and yang harmony. We need to see the light in the dark and the dark within the light. There is no bad, there is no good. Union between people will only contribute to the overall project. Moon opposite Saturn.

  3. Tuesday: Building upon yesterday, there are brilliant ideas in the air to bring things together. Keep a pen newarby. Mars quintile Venus.

  4. Wednesday: Ego has rule today, but that doesn't mean we should roll over and play dead. Find the humor in life and get ready to discover hidden gems that only this transit can reveal! Super Blue Blood Moon in 11* Leo.

  5. Thursday: Seed Level for the month of February! Consciousness is all! Move forward on your path, and do your part. Use all limitations to refine your efforts!  Jupiter semi-square Saturn, Moon conjunct N. Node.

  6. Friday: We might feel like airheads today. There is a lot of creative force broadcasting in all directions. Use it for your projects and be careful to not get too distracted with all those desires and opportunities! 5 Planets in Aquarius, Venus semi-square Jupiter.

  7. Saturday: It could be that we keep getting interrupted. But we can use it to our advantage. Maybe we need to interrupt ourselves from doing something stupid or that would waste our time. Love is never interrupted, but sadly it goes underappreciated. Saturn semi-square Jupiter & Venus.

Making Connections

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 4
January 21, 2018 - January 27, 2018

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the week of Aquarius.

After the heaviness of Capricorn, we are now in the Solar month of the water bearer, Aquarius.  Obviously, this is about sharing, distribution, networking and making CONNECTIONS!

Last week, in the final phase of Capricorn, we worked on financial goals and ambition.  Now, in the month of Aquarius, we are finding the recipients, our market if you will, of our projects.  Even if we don’t see the results on the physical plane, we need to understand that there are many forces at play, many of which are invisible to the limited eye.  So, we need to approach this without discouragement and KNOW that when we are in alignment with the archetypes, we will break through doubt, pessimism, despair and hopelessness to make our wholesome dreams and wishes come true.

This brings us back to CONNECTION.  A connection is, essentially, a relationship in which a person, place, thing, or idea is linked with something else.  It is the LINK between things.  It’s the bond, the glue, the wiring that is required to allow electrical current to flow from one device to the other.  We couldn’t charge our devices without connection!  Even wireless charging has a connection (again, invisible to the human eye).

As many of us know, we are currently in The Age of Aquarius, which is essentially the age of information.  We make CONNECTIONS from the information we gather, Google and gulp up.  Then, we advance our personal world, while authorities advance the world.

Now, for the Aquarius archetype, general, non-attached connections are the ideal form of linking things together.  As soon as Aquarius needs to get one-on-one and intimate, it B Lines to the next satellite (hopefully a cold, detached one).

The Aquarius archetype is at its best making connections with groups of people.  When asked to sit down and be very one-on-one, boredom, disinterest and bewilderment can ensue.  So, this month we shouldn’t expect one-on-one relationships to pickup or improve without any extra effort.  How funny that Valentine’s Day is always falling within the Solar Month of Aquarius!

Our connections are widespread during the month of Aquarius.  Depending where Aquarius and its ruling planet, Uranus, fall in your chart will determine which areas you need to really focus on this month.

One of the karmic corrections we really needs to learn during the month of Aquarius is that groups change with one mind at a time.  No matter how big or grand we become, it always come down to making the difference in one person's life.  Anything else, is, quite bluntly said, megalomaniac.  Which brings me to one caveat: the Aquarius ego is extremely big.  Don’t forget it is opposite Leo, so it will display similar characteristics in another expression.

What this means for us is that we need to be careful of seeking praise for being “different”.

Have a great first week in the month of Aquarius.

Scent of the Month: Cedarwood rules Aquarius, Patchouli rules Uranus. The Aquarius astro blend contains both these ingredients to overcome the negative influences of Aquarius and activate the positive qualities during the month.

This week breakdown (and notable transits):

  1. Sunday: We need to be victorious against our ego and its attempts to take away our power. Speak up when you need help or see that help is needed. Sun in 1st decan Aquarius.

  2. Monday: Impulsiveness! Opposition. Power Games. Hold your Horses and keep your inner self in control. Moon square Saturn.

  3. Tuesday: Hold your horses, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Healing will be accessed by breaking down whatever wants to repeat itself. Mars trine Chiron.

  4. Wednesday: Now is the time to get our ideas about others out of our head. If we can’t manage it now, it will only be more difficult later. Judgement is blinding us. Be open to an alternative. Mercury conjunct Pluto 2nd Decan Capricorn.

  5. Thursday: Be very careful to not fall into those same old illusions. If we want our projects to get to the next level, we need to see through illusion and choose from a place where everyone benefits. Jupiter sextile Pluto.

  6. Friday: We are taking our desires into new horizons. Don’t be surprised if your appetite changes or you want to try something new. New vessel always brings new contents. We are moving one from to a love that’s long! Venus 2nd Decan Aquarius quintile Uranus.

  7. Saturday: Can you withstand the rhythm of the endless? Today we are looking at where we are limited our freedom by wanting to have all options available. When we are juggling castles in the sky, we end up distracted and empty handed and thereby manifest what we wanted to avoid. Saturn square Jupiter.
