The Solar Eclipse across The U.S.A.

August 20 - August 26, 2017

Hello Stargazers!


This week we enter the month of Virgo, the last cycle of summer!  But only after what’s being called, “The Great American Solar Eclipse”!  We also have Saturn going direct in Sagittarius and Jupiter moving into the 3rd decan of Libra!

Sunday

We are preparing for what is coming tomorrow, it’s a good day to review your lunar eclipse from 2 weeks ago.  Remember, I advised that we really work on our issues, because they will blow up in our face on the Total Solar Eclipse tomorrow.  So we can prepare by looking at where we are and where we want to go.  If we did our homework, then we will be able to move forward, be victorious and take on more light.

There is fear and superstition about this eclipse and the fate of the USA as this eclipse will travel across the nation.

Just to catch you all to speed, a total solar eclipse is when the moon’s diameter (from our perspective) is larger than the sun’s, blocking all the light turning day into “night”.  It’s going to cross these 14 states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.  All of these states, except for Illinois and Oregon, voted for Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election.  So a line is being drawn across these states, removing ego and making changes throughout the heartland, and the rest of the nation.

I spoke about this in my workshop in March, but the US is having its Pluto return right now, so it’s going through a lot of changes and transformation.  This Total Solar Eclipse within the Pluto Return is just adding to the opportunity for upgrade.  What's interesting is that the last coast to coast eclipse we had in America was in 1918 (which was also a 1 year numerologically speaking - 1 + 9 + 1 + 8 = 19 and 1 + 9 = 10 and 1 + 0 = 1, just like 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10, and 1 + 0 = 1.  What's even more auspicious is that this is the first eclipse that has been exclusively in the US since the country's independence in 1776!!  Again, taking us back to the Pluto return theme!!  There is no doubt that the country is due for a renewal, and this Total Solar Eclipse is sealing the deal.  Although the eclipse will only last for 1 hour and 33 minutes, the effects will ripple for another year and a half.

The eclipse is occurring in the last degrees of Leo, which is the decan of standing up for what you believe in and warding off opposition.  There is a lot of promise for growth, success and progress, which is exactly what the country needs right now.  

The degree of the Total Solar Eclipse will remain a sensitive point in the Zodiac for the next year and a half, and because Mars is almost conjunct the eclipse, it will activate right away on September 3rd, 2017 (mark this day in your calendar, it’s going to be very powerful).

Now, in the dash system, it is known and accepted that the moon is generally competitive with the sun.  The moon, being yang, wants to outshine the sun, which is yin.  But, when the moon has the opportunity to block out the sun, we have a total upset of yin and yang.  On one hand, our reactive behavior is eclipsing our conscious will; at the same time, we intuition is eclipsing our egotistical motives.  So we have the opportunity to begin a new balance of these yin and yang energies.

A Pluto return, is a time for reboot, and upgrade.  It is the only planet that indicates the power to level-up.  A Total Solar Eclipse, during a Pluto return tells me that it is crucial that we do not get sucked into judgement or negativity.  If we do, we will experience the negative effects of these astrological transits.  Remember, the Sun is the ego, the moon is the inner self, and the moon is the ruler of the US (since it is a Cancer), so it’s all about getting back to the roots of the declaration of independence, freedom, liberty, and justice for all.

Tuesday

Just shortly after the Total Solar Eclipse, the sun moves into earthly virgo to begin closing out the final cycle of summer.  We are detail oriented and taking inventory of our past year to prepare for the autumn equinox.  The energy is still very boiled from the Total Solar Eclipse all week.  In fact, the Total Solar Eclipse pretty much eclipses anything else I could write about!

Wednesday

We are out of sorts a bit today, trying to figure out what just happened.  Don’t be frazzled, or if you are, don’t take it personal - the cosmos is a bit Topsy-Turvy right now.  Avoid criticism at all costs, just find something positive to think about and be productive.

Thursday

Finally! The heartbreak is over! We no longer need to focus on our broken hearts!  What a relief!  I hope you had a great review, but now it’s time to put things to rest and bury the past.  This is a great if we did our work throughout the heartbreak as we can now reset ourselves and take the time we need to organize.  Otherwise, if we didn’t, we need to be careful from escaping through sleep or isolation.  This is a potential place for refuge, but from the pain and suffering, not for the pain and suffering.  If you haven’t, let it go.

Friday

Saturn, the planet of karma, goes direct in sagittarius helping us with our obligations and responsibilities.  Be careful from burning out, we need to recharge.  Maybe we have been given a promotion or have had recent success, and now we need to pick up the pace and work it.  It’s time to finalize and follow through.  Again, perfect with the Total Eclipse in Leo theme of the week.  Lots of fire, for lots of transformation!

We may feel the world begin to shift with Saturn going direct.

Saturday

As always Saturday will re-host the energy from the week, which was an intense one.  Venus will also move into Leo which will make our ability to love a bit more fiery and playful.

So, this week:

  • Stay aware during The Total Solar Eclipse.
  • Shift into the practical applications of Virgo.
  • Don’t be too critical of yourself.
  • Be careful of hiding or sleeping away your pain.
  • Don’t take it personal if you’re out of sorts!
  • Be playful in love!
  • Prevent burning out, by taking some time for yourself.
  • Use the Virgo Essential Oil Blend!

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.

Astrological Evidence:
Sunday: Sun conjunct north node in 3rd decan Leo.
Monday: Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon in 28 degrees Leo.
Tuesday: Sun Enters Virgo
Wednesday: Mercury retrograde in Virgo.
Thursday: Jupiter entered 20* Libra
Friday: Saturn goes direct in 3rd decan Sagittarius
Saturday: Venus enters Leo

Week 33, 2017

Astrological Week 33, 2017

GET IT IN WRITING!

August 13 - August 19, 2017

Sunday

The week starts off with Mercury going retrograde in Virgo.  Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, so this is going to be a very strong pull on our crown chakra.  We may be very critical of ourselves, or we may be projecting our self-criticism onto others.  So, if you feel like judging others, just take a minute and look at yourself first and try to imagine how you have been in that situation that you are observing (mercury).

As we all know, we are in the solar month of Leo, but mercury is a sign ahead in Virgo scouting what’s to come next month.  So the effort we put in now will have a direct on the month to come, which is an important one because it is the last month before the autumn equinox which will end another 6 month cycle.

This Mercury retrograde puts a huge emphasis on messages and communication on all things physical.  It could be that we write down the wrong thing, or we mis-read, or lose messages on a napkin.  So, be extra careful to keep a physical record of these messages.  It’s a “GET IT AND KEEP IN WRITING” situation!  Keep your records, you’re going to need them!  We love having everything in the cloud, but we always need to have those important numbers in a little black book for unforeseen emergencies.

I also want to make sure that everyone who lives in earthquake prone cities like Los Angeles or various cities in Italy make sure their earthquake packs are current.  I am not saying freak out, I am just saying, make sure you are prepared.  Of course, there are inner earthquakes that may really shake up our world.

This Mercury retrograde also has a gigantic emphasis on money.  Basically, it’s about what money means to us and what we do with it.  We are reviewing what we have used our money for, and we may decide what we will use our money for.  Now, money is energy, so the way we treat it depends on how much will return to us.  The emphasis is on transforming the need to WORK FOR MONEY into USING MONEY TO WORK.  Meaning, investing into ourselves, our passions and our projects.  Not just working to get money.  OK, we have all transit to think about this.

Mercury will retrograde all the way back to Leo, where we will time travel a bit back to July 24th and review how things have been going since around that time.  If you made any choices or have embarked on intentions, look and see how they progressing.  Could be an investment for example.

I am going to suggest using the virgo essential oil astrology blend throughout the retrograde motion, which is from August 12 to September 5, 2017.

Monday

Get ready for the emotions to come up!  Whoa, this is a day where it’s all being exposed.  There could be some explosive reactions, but if we work with this transit, then there can be the complete elimination of negative emotions.  There is another emphasis on money, and resentments about holding onto it, or giving it in the wrong places.  Be very, very, careful to not ride on a high horse or feel “better than”.

Tuesday

OMG, it’s a “Monday part 2”!  All about money, and seeing where we have gone wrong with our judgmental behavior.  This is great because a light is being shined upon what it is we need to fix.  We are learning that everything wants to upgrade, everything wants to grow and this means that the old must go (yeah, I just rhymed that).

Wednesday

This is a day in which we need to decide what we want to let go of in order to grow.  It’s gotta be something, and we don’t want to leave this up to fate.  It could be stuff you’re hoarding in your closet, or a bad habit you have been trying to kick.  Now is the time.  Let it go, it’s time to grow (yeah, I know, I just used the same rhyme).

Thursday 😲

I just love how the universe organizes everything!  There is an amazing pattern in the heavens coming into focus on Thursday.  This will be very strong over the next 3 days, “Got that Angelfish? Three days” - Ursula.

It’s time to pry open our hearts, put away the past and bring something new into our lives.  There is a SURGE of creative energy, so it’s a great time to plan for projects and the future.  But, it will need laws, rules and regulations in order to really convert our intentions into something tangible and effective.  Teamwork, celebration and overcoming past hurts is what this is all about.  Time to get creative and get to it, otherwise situations that may force us to be creative with the wrong things (e.g., more of the same).

Friday

Friday is the 2nd day of the process that started on Thursday, but now there is the energy of receiving.  We find it difficult to receive from the process.  As we change inside, things change on the outside, and this can bring up some resistance, naturally.  The creative energy wants to manifest, so if we can try to work with it, it won’t leave us with a big mess.  Remembering how to use our resources and work with what we have at hand will give us the insight and impulse to optimize this transit.   The best step forward will be inevitable.

Saturday

As always, Saturday is the cumulative energy of the week we just had.  Which means that it will all come back to us.  The inner burdens are being relinquished, but only so we can take on more later.  We are making room on our plate so that we can move forward in other areas.  Part of this includes negativity that we have been schlepping around, making us heavy on our path.  It’s time to let go of the past and finally move on, we all will have much to do with all that dynamic energy swirling around.

So, this week:

  • Get it in writing!
  • Keep track of the important documents.
  • Stay off the high horse.
  • Remember that everything wants to upgrade.
  • Get rid of something old.
  • Bring something new into your life.
  • Change within to change without.
  • Release the inner burdens.
  • Watch my retreat videos.
  • Watch my FREE Leo video.
  • Smell the Leo Essential Oil Blend.
  • Listen to my Leo playlist!

Week 32, 2017

Astrological Week 32, 2017

August 6 - August 12, 2017

Sunday: Sun conjunct Mars in second decan Leo.

We are in the middle of summer this week.  The energy of today sets the tone for the rest of the week.  The Sun and Mars are still conjunct in fiery Leo turning up the heat.  This is a A LOT of fire energy so we do not want to get burned, and the best way to do utilize this fireball of energy is to open the heart.  Think of the heart as a conduit of heat and fire, which serves the purpose of transformation.  If the heart is open there will be no explosion.  In this zone of the Zodiac, both the Sun and Mars are activating our ability to succeed and thereby increase our confidence.  There is advancement, even if it isn't obvious, and we just need to keep in mind that in order to gain confidence Mars will break down little, pathetic egos.  However that looks depends upon you.  I suggest being proactive about it.

Monday: Moon Opposite Mars, Lunar Partial Eclipse in 15 degrees Aquarius

Get ready for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse today.  Astronomically speaking, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the umbra (the shadow) of the Earth on the ecliptic plane.  What this means for us is that our subconscious will be totally out of reach!  It’s going to be extremely difficult for us to connect with that full moon power.  Because it is occurring in Aquarius, during the month of Leo, this means that our ego is trying to hide.  Also, Mars isn’t making things easier as it is adding more energy to this transit.  It could be a day that is like so full of ego that we wouldn’t know it if it hit us on the head!  So much suppression!  If you want to avoid swelling in the head, ankles or back, keep your ego in check and double check your actions before you make them!  There is bound to be tension if we forget about this transit.

This will ripple out for two weeks until the total solar eclipse on August 21.  Then the moon will block the earth and be shown everything that was hiding.  If we can manage to incorporate the above, we will receive perspectives on issues that are genius!  We need to prove that we are worth the great ideas, the great timing and the change of direction.

Tuesday: Mars in second decan Leo.

On Tuesday Mars begins to separate a little bit from the Sun, which will help the intense heat.  This leaves us focusing on teamwork, achievement, and taking action to be the leader in our work, life, or wherever that role is opening for you.  Time to step up and take some action, just don’t get onto a high horse about it.

Wednesday: Mercury in Virgo opposite Rx Neptune in Pisces.

Wednesday has a lot of “vacation” energy to it.  In this down time, and we are floating in Neptune's domain which is bringing up dreams about unfulfilled wishes and dreams (because it is retrograde).  But, Mercury is giving us the ideas we need to fix these unsatisfied and unfulfilled wishes.  Put them into implementation, the Mercury in Virgo helps us really manifest.

Thursday: Jupiter in Libra square Pluto and sextile Sun.

Jupiter is still helping us open and heal our heartbreaks now with an added boost of digging up old structures.  However, right there we have a nice transit helping us illuminate and burn out whatever comes up.  It could be like a vampire that hits the light of day and vanishes.

Friday: Venus in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces

Celebrate!  There is a flow of positive energy today.  Good for recreating, play and joy.  Be careful to not drink too much, or at all.  With this transit, as fun as it can be, drugs or alcohol will just increase the illusion and make the Saturnian morning after that much more harsh.  Venus is in Cancer making us mushy and patriotic, while Neptune is at home in Pisces looking at what is missing.  So today the voids are filled, but if we want it to last we can’t do it with anything from the “outside”, it can only be non-attached love.  Do some bonding, and enjoy your friends.

Saturday: Saturn in Sagittarius trine Sun in Leo.

As always, Saturday is the cumulative energy of the week we just had.  Which means that it will all come back to us.  We are unloading burdens, and releasing old patterns.  It is one thing to work on the patterns, but in the end all we really need to do is get rid of them.  This week, we have been shown a lot about our patterns and we are in the eclipse season so today we get a boost of clear our psychic cache.

So, this week:

  • We are advancing toward our goals!
  • Activate the inner leader within!
  • Stay off the high horse.
  • Enjoy the “vacation” energy
  • We are healing more heartbreak.
  • No over-intoxication!
  • Do some bonding, and enjoy your friends.
  • Clear your psychic cache
  • Watch my retreat videos.
  • Watch my FREE Leo video.
  • Smell the Leo Essential Oil Blend.
  • Listen to my Leo playlist!

Week 31, 2017

leo-week-31,-2017.png

Sunday: Sun conjunct Mars in first decan Leo.

The solar energy this week is really picking up, so please use your sunscreen.  Spiritually speaking, we need to be aware that there is a lot of violating energy in the cosmos.  We need to keep our ego energies in check and not get into feuds.  This isn’t to say we should just roll over and play dead, but keep in mind that ego energies are high this week so don’t get into any heated arguments or discussions.  Just go for a walk, and give other’s space as this transit is affecting them too.

Monday: Venus Enters Cancer novile Mars in Leo.

On Monday, loving venus moves into watery cancer.  It’s about reciprocating love and sharing feelings.  It also looks like some female energy from the past is going to pop-up.  Be sensitive to the opportunity which will be presented.  It could be a gust of wind, or the closure of some past life karma that probably wasn’t so great.  We also don’t want to get clingy and all emotional.  Venus in Cancer can be a bit of a crybaby, so if you have to cry, make sure you aren't having a pity party because you’re not getting your way.  Other than that, we are loving the household and homey side of life!

Tuesday: Mars conjunct Sun in first decan Leo.

Ok, it’s the same advice as I gave on Sunday.  Today is the most imbalanced days of the year.  Throughout history, this day has been negative and this year we have many planets in fire signs just making it even hotter.  There is a lot of impatience in the air, so do your best to be patient without yourself and others!  This is the first day of the month, so it’s in a way, the seed level of what’s to come, a lot of heat and a lot of light to use.

Wednesday: Mercury in Virgo novile Jupiter in Libra.

Use the energy of Wednesday to see how and where we can open our heart more.  See where we can give to others to help their pain.  Even if people seem “fine” to you, give your best because you have no idea what is going on inside.  We are making excuses for people right now.

Thursday: Uranus goes Retrograde.

Uranus goes retrograde today until January 2, 2018.  So the journey is directed inwards, we are looking at our progress and what we have learned.  We may feel closer to our spirit life and may even become more in touch with our originality.  I should write more about this, but for now, we are getting in touch with our potential and looking at maybe where we took a wrong tour.

Friday: Jupiter Square Pluto, Venus opposite Moon, Venus trine “Part of Fortune”.

Let’s planet some seeds for prosperity!  The money wants to flow in, so don’t overlook it as it may be where we least expect it.  Be careful of being too extravagant, make sure the money is in the bank first!  There is a lot of ambition in the air, and we are willing to strive for whatever we want, so go for it, just remember when we act from the ego, there is ALWAYS a price, so make sure you know the price first.

Saturday: Saturn conjunct Black Moon, Saturn trine North Node, Saturn square Part of Fortune.

Saturday is the manifestation of the week, and it was a hot one!  Our actions throughout the week will manifest again for review and download.  This energy will contribute to the direction we are going in life.  We need to make sure that we are being smart with our money.  Double check receipts if you doing the tourist thing.

So, this week:

  • Don’t get into heated arguments or discussions.
  • Don’t get clingy.
  • At all costs, do not argue.
  • Open your heart to those in pain.
  • Awaken your inner originality.
  • Plant seeds for prosperity.
  • Tourist: double check your receipts.
  • Be patient with yourself and others.
  • Watch my retreat videos.
  • Use the leo essential oil.
  • Listen to my Leo playlist below:
