Busy Gemini June Astro update…

gemini-twins

June is going to be a busy month with Mercury zinging into Gemini to join the Sun on the 6th, followed by  the Full Moon in Gemini/Sag on the 9th.  So if you’re feeling wanderlust or restless & general need for fresh stimulus go for it!! Spontaneous trips & meetings with remarkable minds is just what we need right now, with a good dose of some fun thrown in as goodness knows we’ve had way too much serious stuff lately! Gemini keynote is DISTRIBUTION of ideas & knowledge so if you’ve got something to say or teach get it out there before June 21st ok? And remember to stay adaptable as the wind changes…frequently over coming weeks!!

You are welcome to book a personal session & please click like on Universal Astro FB page for updates between these letters!

have-faithOMG it’s all so Gemini on steroids right now isn’t it? Too much complex info & bad news demanding our attention so it’s essential to not buy into letting it all make us anxious, hence this pic! Stay positive my friends and use the best of the Gemini goodies for excellent multi-tasking & being open for brilliant ideas to take you ‘out of the box’!

Friday 9th’s Full Moon @ 18 deg Gemini/Sag heightens the extreme themes of 2017 as words & info & fake news will go nuts, & with Neptune in hard aspect be careful what you believe! Escapism, delusion & confusion are also Neptune features, & as I’m writing this it feels like maybe we all deserve to switch off the news/social media for these few days and do a little escapism!

So be very selective about incoming data & verify and check facts. There’s a cool upside here as Gemini aligns our rational left brain mind/mouth with our Neptune visionary right brain, so take time to consciously align your TWO brains. Just close your eyes and do a simple exercise – visualize a bright white light in your left brain and then the same in your right brain. Then connect these with a bright white line and breathe as you say ” I now trust my intuition to inspire my ideas and words”.

As we reach the mid-way point in this tumultuous year be aware that these extreme times will start to level off once we head into October. Yes folks 2017 is a game changer on so many levels as The Gods of Change are upsetting every conventional form we’ve had in place since the late 1980s! Remember ‘revolutions’ upset the status quo and bring mayhem & confusion, but when we’re on to this it’s much easier to remain ‘objective’ and not buy into our emotional overload from events and the many people around us who are having meltdowns.

The maverick see-saw features of this bizarre year contain the essence of Gemini actually…namely the TWINs representing our DUAL nature in a myriad of forms. We are all polarized and contain both light and dark – pleasure and pain- devil and angel – fear and trust. So sometimes a little meltdown is just fine as we need to allow the release valve holding the pressure of managing everything… to just let go. Sometimes a good cry and honoring our vulnerable shadow side is the best medicine! Once again all very Gemini.

And yes this Gem/Sag Full Moon is all over Mr Trump with his Sun/Uranus in Gemini opposite Moon in Sag. I mean you couldn’t make this astrology stuff up! He’s the archetypal maverick right?  Is he mad? Is he being manipulated by the global elite? Is he in some convoluted way actually calling them out? Is he an innocent fool driven by his own narcissism?  It’s a mystery!! So stay tuned for the next round of ‘Trumpeets’ issuing forth into mid June!!

Conscious evolution means we manage the see-saw features in our own nature as we also cope with the terribly sad and totally pointless pain happening in our world. My heart goes out to those who are affected by this ‘healing crisis’ of our time. Use this Gemini time to speak words of compassion & understanding to the many folks who are in “shell shock” and struggling to cope with these challenging times.

It reminds me that the big picture issue of Saturn in Sagittarius has brought us the extreme BELIEFS that are fueling the SEPARATION between east/west Christian/Muslim, and that our collective evolution demands that we UNITE and CO-OPERATE to take the next great step in human affairs!

So as we’re all in info overload I’ll just complete this little letter with a mention that:
Relating planet Venus steps into sensuous Taurus also on June 6th until July 5th. Go the pleasure and beauty principle people!! Make art and gardens – stimulate your senses with healing oils and massages and all things yummy – cook nourishing food – think and invite prosperity – make love not war!!

AND action planet Mars  stepped into the feeling based sign of Cancer on June 4th! This brings the home and family and emotional safety territory front and center. He’s in Cancer right through until July 21st so use this time to nurture all you hold dear and do some renovations to both physical and emotional homes. Just be careful of your ’emotional reactions’!! Great opportunity to notice your ‘defense systems’ when feeling unsafe or vulnerable. Ask for hugs and give them.

This is a pre-curser to Sun also entering Cancer on June 21st marking the 1/4 point in our natural year known as the Solstice. This is longest day for my northern hemisphere friends and shortest day down here in southern climes.  Thus late June into July is time to nurture and LOVE ourselves…and everyone really!!
Blessings & love to all Maggie

Full Moon Taurus/Scorpio May 10th + Planets on the move at last!

Taurus Full MoonGreetings friends as we get set for some action at last after recent glacially slow moving times!

Yes Mercury plus Venus retro has been training in patience & preparation but great for holidays…lol

They are both direct now & picking up speed but it’s still wise & cool to wait until after May 21st for major launches & action.

Indeed late May brings exciting connections between Venus + Mars + Saturn  + Uranus! Outcome? Haha sorry you’ll have to scroll down…

And yes it’s Buddha’s birthday on this powerful transforming Full Moon…

Wednesday’s Full Moon @ 20 degrees Taurus/Scorpio brings us an interesting & ambiguous mix of influences, as deep & intense Scorp power themes collide with highly active mental & social goodies! Sounds like a fab night to hang out with stimulating friends & throw around progressive ideas, light a candle & write your ‘invocation’ for what you want to empower in your life from here. And while you’re at it say a prayer for healing & transformation for us all with a big focus on care for our natural world…

The exciting feature here is Mercury & Uranus together in Aries, a combo famous for radical words & ideas. They’ve been coming & going off this connection since late March so now we get the final impulse to be brave enough to act upon our urge for change & re-invention. Downside here can be feeling easily irritated so pick your battles & avoid power plays, as with Pluto holding court on proceedings it’s all about power & control. No doubt we’re also in for another barrage of impulsive words & actions from our esteemed leaders as they continue to distract us from the real issues that are fragmenting our society in so many ways! As Scorpio is all about ‘secrets’ & behind the scenes power systems, I’m also wondering if we’re in for some more whistleblowing with consequences the elite mob can no longer deny? Hope so!

On a positive note Saturn in Sag in positive connection offers supportive structures to underpin the big changes on the way, along with the ‘dissemination’ or spread of the new era innovations & technologies…and this means yours!  This also takes the ‘people power’ movement into greater expression internationally. 2017 is the YEAR OF AWAKENING my friends so jump on board any opportunity you have to speak the TRUTH so we can get past the propaganda & lies they continue to feed us. I’ll have more to say on this in my June Gemini letter.

As we are now in Taurus time which is all about values & wealth this doco is fascinating tracing the story of the rise of the ‘trickle-down economics’ from the Reagan/Thatcher years in the early 1980s to our current point of seriously iniquitous wealth/poverty. Current economists now get that this system DOES NOT work (except for the 1%) and has so badly eroded middle class wealth that capitalism is at risk of destroying itself. And then there’s this classic Overdose: The Next Financial Crisis | Full Documentary

OK now it’s time to talk about the sacred festival known as Wesak  or Vesak & informally called “Buddha’s Birthday” commemorating the birth, enlightenment (Buddhahood), and death of Gautama Buddha who is universally acclaimed as one of the greatest benefactors of Humanity.

As Taurus is all about the VALUES that underpin our actions I hope his ‘teachings’ may inspire your intention as you bask under the loving rays of this Full Moon – which BTW will be extra beautiful with Jupiter bright & clear.

Enlightenment, Ascension & all that stuff… Enlightenment in Buddhism is associated with the perfection of insight into the Four Noble Truths to bring about the cessation of suffering, stress & dissatisfaction. So here’s the formula my friends & off you go!!

The 1st  is translated as “Life is suffering“  or  “incapable of satisfying”

The 2nd teaches that the cause of suffering is craving. We search for something outside ourselves to make us happy. But no matter how successful we are, we never remain satisfied. We grab one thing after another seeking security about ourselves. We attach not only to physical things, but also to ideas and opinions about ourselves and the world around us. Then we grow frustrated when the world doesn’t behave the way we think it should and our lives don’t conform to our expectations.

The 3rd – Buddha taught that through diligent practice, we can put an end to craving. Ending the hamster-wheel chase after satisfaction is enlightenment (bodhi, “awakened”).

The 4th is the treatment plan – the Eight-fold Path.

Right View is also sometimes called Right Understanding.

Right Intention is sometimes translated as Right Aspiration or Right Thought.

Right Speech is communicating in ways that promote harmony and understanding.

Right Action is action that springs from compassion without selfish attachment.

Right Livelihood is earning a living in a way that does not compromise the Precepts or harm anyone.

Right Effort or Right Diligence is the practice of developing wholesome qualities

Right Mindfulness is a whole body-and-mind awareness of the present moment.

Right Concentration requires meditation to focus the mind & clear.

These goodies come from my “Adventures in Consciousness Life Coaching” Program. Over the next few months I’m about to release my Membership site so you can access my “12 System Alignment” e-program, followed by my “Complete e-Astrology Course”. And then the Adventures Program! Yay I am finally doing it my friends as I also join the e-revolution to spread my work far and wide. Please stay tuned for your inbox on this PLUS my invitation for you to join me in the USA in September.

Mars continues his run through Gemini during May and by late month he dances with Venus & Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sag. Quite the busy combo here that can offer completion & release of projects you’ve been slowing developing over the past 6 months. The trick is to stay clear & objective & patient as these guys can also bring the urge to spit the dummy with authority figures & limiting ‘others’, and with Uranus involved there can be exciting & unexpected ingredients that spin you forward into brand new territory.

The New Moon @ 4 degrees Gemini on May 26th opens Stage 3 of the Natural Year. We’ve had a precursor to the busy Gemini communications & networking energies from Mars in Gem over recent weeks so as we head into June it’s time to upgrade our IT solutions, expand our networks and get out and about physically and mentally…more on this in next letter.

Stay positive my friends – keep dreaming & believing that these current crazy challenging times are part of the ‘healing crisis’ that is leading us toward  revolution between the old values that run our world and a healthy sustainable future. It’s up to us to make a difference so this can happen. Blessings & love to all Maggie

Upcoming Workshops & Trainings

After a nice few months off to rest & restore I’m all set to teach some Astrology!! Saturday 10th June “The Wonders & Workings of Eclipses” Eclipses of the Sun and the Moon are common phenomena within the Cosmic features that regulate natural growth cycles in our world.  So why is it that these visual events more than any other have always held fascination and fear since ancient times?  We will focus on their 19 year cycles in your life, & particularly on the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse in Leo as it hits Mr Trump’s chart and it’s path passes over the USA for the first time since 1642!!

Saturday 8th July The Solar Return or Annual Birthday Chart …is the return of the Sun to its own place marking the start of a new cycle to supply the horoscope with a fresh charge of energy. It provides an ‘overview’ of the themes in play for the year ahead, and yes there is also a cycle to our Solar Returns over 8 year periods!

April 11th Full Moon & More!!

Full Moon Libra April 2017

Love this image for our Full Moon in Libra on April 11th containing the balance of YIN & YANG in our nature between independent action aligned with co-operation with others! Indeed ‘holding our center’ is a biggie for April as generally things can feel a tad frustrating due to both Venus and then Mercury in retro phases. It kind of feels like an anti-climax to the Aries energy from late March urging us onward…and then forward motion being blocked by events beyond our control or annoying stuff we have to deal with. Yep our very strange year continues to challenge us to innovate new activity as we also learn to ‘GO WITH THE FLOW’ & trust!!

You are welcome to book a personal session & please click like on Universal Astro FB page for updates between these letters!

Mercury retrogradeBasic info about Mercury RETROGRADE timings is now pretty well known these days! Even staunch ‘don’t believe in Astrology’ business types now know that it’s cool to heed the caution to deal with the details and avoid signing contracts during this time.   Yes 3 x each year our little buddy Mercury appears to go ‘backwards’  so we can do all the RE things…as listed above! So from April 9th until May 5th our ‘messenger God’ does his retro phase in TAURUS. So it’s all about details to do with MONEY and VALUE systems in our lives. Merc retro is fab for lining up the balls so you’re set to LAUNCH projects & new goodies after mid-May. Here’s the link to my 2017 Global Astrology Report & Horoscopes

Hi folks welcome to my April update where I’ll cover the main territory in the first few paras for those who are in info fatigue mode, and if you’re up for the long story then you can read on…ok?

So as we head toward Tuesday’s Full Moon things are hotting up in the ‘let’s play war game’ as the idiots who run our world rattle their sabers in their endless quest for power. OK so because we are wise owls who get that fear sells, we’re way beyond getting sucked into their hideous game right?

So even though it is indeed a power packed & potentially dangerous Full Moon period on the way we ARE going to use it as an amazing opportunity to create exciting new plans with cool partners to expand our possibilities, & to upgrade our consciousness beyond ‘division’ & ‘separation’ to create inner peace & UNITY no matter how weird things get ‘out there’.

Yes we have every right to be angry with the system but we have to find a way to channel it into constructive action & demand diplomatic solutions. We are NOT going to over-react or antagonize or project our frustrations are we? We ARE going to practice co-operation & send our hearts & minds toward all things peaceful.  

April opened with Venus still retro since March 4th & it won’t be until May 19th she comes ‘out of shadow’ and returns to 13 degrees Aries where she started! Hence my suggestion that it’s good to wait until after May 19th for major launches for projects or big life decisions that are pending.  So during this 40 day period we have time to review & value our need for independent action, plus release old toxic relating patterns where we are not being valued! So not a great time to start love affairs or buy luxury items, just keep growing your confidence & prosperity consciousness to initiate new direction next month!

Indeed one of our major challenges during April also arrives via the beautiful one being ‘squared’ by Saturn for most of the month! So if you’re feeling like you’re in a bit of a trough, finances are a bit stretched, creative mojo has deserted you, or easy lovin is in short supply… then blame good old Saturn! He’s a hard taskmaster who demands of us that we ‘never give up’ and keep working toward our goals. When he’s connecting to Venus he’s testing our relationships on many levels. Are we staying in a situation because of money or an ‘unconscious invitation’ to invite others to limit us so we don’t have to take responsibility for our own individual growth?

This is actually a great time to review Venus stuff – what we eat – the clothes we wear- who matters – your choices – what are you attached to that’s holding you back – just about everything really! It’s a big cleanse and release phase and you’ll feel so much freer long term, so stay fluid and adaptable and keep that sense of humor front & center. Just beware the urge to have a pity party or get sucked into someone else’s!

OK so speaking of Saturn… he also turns retro on April 6th until August 24th…which happens every year BUT this year is a biggie as he is exactly on the Galactic Centre as he stands still and heads backwards for the next 5 months, and then re-connects with this point in December just before he leaves Sagittarius…and into Capricorn.    The GC is the Centre of our Galaxy – the black hole located @ 27 degrees of Sagittarius that emanates the magnetisms for our whole Galaxy & Solar System.

The Mayans called the GC ‘Hunab Ku’. ‘Hunab’ means ‘one state of being’ and ‘Ku’ means ‘God’ so the direct translation would be One State of Being God. When our planets align with the GC historically we are activated with new levels of KNOWLEDGE that progress our species. It’s also interesting that it’s position in Sagittarius underpins the essence of the collective evolution of our human process…i.e. the belief systems that drive our evolutionary growth!

This is a significant point in Saturn’s 28/9 year cycle as the last time he was here was 1988…the prelude to the massive events of 1989 – fall of Berlin Wall & the arrival of Russia & China into the globalization systems. So are we also currently poised for some really big global re-arrangements from next year when Uranus enters Taurus & Saturn enters Capricorn? Could it also be that this current 2017 cycle reveals to the scientific community a whole new understanding of the science of INTERCONNECTEDNESS.

Let’s not forget that we’ve also just had the Mayan Calendar 26,000 year return in 2012, so we’re in a brand new phase in human affairs BIG TIME, which is triggering the new revolution in consciousness of our times. So maybe it’s finally time for the knowledge of the Einstein/Tesla of our time to finally be welcomed into our scientific thinking. I’ve been following the work of this amazing mathematician for several years now. His name is Nassim Haramein and his revolutionary work proves that the current world view that our Universe is random & disconnected, is actually unified and perfectly tuned or INTERCONNECTED.  Here’s one of his presentations on “The Connected Universe” Please watch and share far and wide my friends, and go to his “Resonance Science Foundation”  for more info!

Also interesting timing that our ABC ran a 3-part series this week with Astrophysicist Brian Cox exploring our Cosmos with an open forum for amateur astronomers to ‘discover’ new planets…which they did!! Cox isn’t my favorite guy as he totally puts down Astrology, but it’s cool that he’s inspiring folks to ‘seek out knowledge of new worlds’.

Personally we are open to major insights and wake up calls that trigger our own evolution beyond the old limited world view THIS YEAR!

Sun into Taurus on April 20th – opening stage 2 of our natural year. We’ve had Mars in Taurus for the past month so the money thing is already front & center so we now have another month to refine our finances, and yes slow & steady winds the race. All very practical my friends & beware the invitations from the debt machine to get sucked in as things are even more stretched in the Global debt systems….and not looking good. So interesting to see how this all comes to a head as we head into 2018 and change agent Uranus heads into Taurus!

Mars into Gemini on Sat April 22nd until June 5th- Will be so good to have Mr Action in an air sign at last hoorah! So tune up your vocal chords and start making plans for planes trains and automobiles to get you out and about especially as he heads into May. Great for networking & getting our message out there with the usual caution to LISTEN and learn rather than just do all the talking, and your permission here is “I am now heard and understood’. Downside may be ‘angry words’ from others…but not us right?

New Moon Weds April 26th @ 6 degrees Taurus – already talked up Taurus above so this is the New Moon to activate our wealth & worth areas. Celebrate the sensual pleasure of Taurus!! Plant gardens and veggies, make love, paint pictures, make music, give & receive massages & love yourself and your world…be grateful.

Here’s a link to a youtube interview I did for inclusion in a series & book on the nature of DESTINY & Fate. I cover core ideas about the Sun & Moon in Astrology and you may find it interesting…hope so!

I am launching my new Membership Program in May once Venus & Mercury are direct and Mars is in Gemini so stay tuned for my first offering…  Love to all Maggie

  • Sun in Pisces
  • Venus retrograde in Aries – March 4th

  • Mercury into Aries – March 13th
  • Sun into Aries @ Equinox March 20th

You are welcome to book a personal session & please click like on Universal Astro FB page for updates between these letters!

venus rose_ashtar-on-the-road

Venus is now retrograde in Aries for 40 days! Her full cycle returns to the same spot every 8 years creating the ROSE pattern! Beautiful synchronicity isn’t it as she is the planet of LOVE & BEAUTY. Her gift now is to build SELF LOVE & courage to step forward in our lives. She asks us to own and value our independent aspirations beyond the expectations of others & release old toxic relating patterns where you are not being valued…yay!

She began her retro on March 4th @ 13 Aries & is free to move forward after May 19th. So for the first 20 days she is ‘Innana the evening star’ as she goes into the ‘dark’ & we no longer see her in the evening sky. This is not a great time to start a love affairs or buy luxury items! Instead keep growing your confidence & self worth to initiate your new beginnings as yes she is in Aries! After March 26th she joins the Sun and becomes ‘Ishtar the Morning Star’ returning from the ‘underworld’ before sunrise, shedding her bountiful light for a prosperous new period.

Here’s the link to my 2017 Global Astrology Report & Horoscopes

March opened with a bang as Mars joined Uranus to oppose Jupiter for the second time and the highly conflicted global story amped up another notch. Their first opposition was in late December 2016 & their final ‘hit’ will be in late September, after which we should see the tensions ease, albeit heaven only knows what’s in store between now and then!

So yes things are uber intense right now & we are all managing lots of things & energies & difficult people et al. So PLEEZE hold your center with lots of positive messages to self & others remembering that we are also working to build new goodies in our lives that will be marvelous!!

In years to come you’ll be able to say you lived through the most exciting & dynamic phase of modern history! Yes the Depression & dictators of the 1930s, McCarthy & communism in the 1950s, Kennedy & King assassinations in the 1960s, Nixon & Watergate in the 1970s were watershed events in their eras. And yep ours will no doubt be remembered as the ‘Trump Year/s’!

The trouble is that when you’re in the midst of the chaos it’s hard to keep the perspective that is only available after the events. This is why I’m always reminding any who will listen to stay OBJECTIVE and simply be aware that we are witnessing a grand battle between forces of which we everyday folks have little true understanding.

I gave a talk last week about the Astrology of 2017 and was asked “what’s going to happen with all this political stuff?”. My answer was “I don’t know!” All I really know is that In terms of the big picture timings of the unfolding cycles of conscious evolution, the battle is really between the unsustainable practices of the old 3D reality program and the birth of the new paradigm sustainable future.  And in this big picture “battle” it sure is the case that 2017 contains all the big ticket global issues “in extremis” …politics /economics/weather…yep Jupiter in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries aren’t mucking around as they amplify the extreme polarization in every level of human & Gaia affairs.

So when we apply psychological principles here we have fruitful territory for our personal growth & evolution. We must own our own inner stress between the part of us who wants to stay attached to the past versus the part of us that is willing to take responsibility for the need to innovate & change…and this can be risky!  Our current social revolution isn’t just about amazing new technologies and robots and faster & better internet speeds. It’s about a global awakening way beyond that!!

I recently had an fascinating chat with one of my yummy ‘daughters’ who informed me she believes that it won’t be long before people will ‘be over’ all this techno stuff, and just want to start writing & learning & interacting with others without all the complexity that makes people so anxious and overwhelmed and socially dysfunctional.

Isn’t that interesting, as this 34 year old lady is realizing that life is so much richer without COMPLEXITY. Yes I know we can’t turn back the clock but maybe she has a point. SIMPLICITY! I’m reminded of the old T.S. Elliot quote that “we shall never cease from exploration until we return from whence we started and know it for the first time”.

Anyway that’s my little rave for this month! Stay in your heart my friends as you keep building your positive lives inspired by being part of our current social revolution toward a conscious world. Stay in gratitude…be kind to self & others…get excited…be aware that wonderful opportunities are right there for the seizing!! Time to check what our planets are up to for the rest of March and into April.

Sun in Pisces until March 20th – Pisces is the final sign of the 12 fold system thus marks the completion of our ‘natural year’. This is why it’s cool to release and let go – take a rest whenever you can – cleanse your body and home – gestate your dreams – use your intuition to connect with your highest nature…and all that stuff!

Venus retro @ 13 Aries – March 4th until April16th but not back to 13 Aries until May 19th – I outlined the basics in the top left column so a few extra points here.  Sometimes Venus retro can bring people back from our past with whom we either need to complete some old karma OR are actually meant to be re-instated in our lives for further growth. Venus also rules money, so apart from not being a time for big expense items it is a time for reviewing your finances and if necessary divesting yourself from joint situations that no longer serve you. Great time for enhancing our self-worth and home renovations may also apply.

Mars into Taurus – March 10th until April 21st – the energy planet is now meant to be directed toward steady practical matters. Money features here also (Taurus is financial) so great time to build your resources. Cool for gardening & art & music & all pleasurable & beautifying pursuits

Full Moon March 12th – 22 degrees Sun Pisces/Virgo Moon – On the upside this is a sweetie full of healing vibes from Chiron with the Sun in Pisces, so use this one to meditate and hang out with healers and visionary people to inspire your own visionary nature. Downside may arrive from Saturn in Sag in hard aspect to the full moon unleashing another big dose of truth & lies scenarios. We can use this to get honest and real about where & how our BELIEFS may be limiting us & to deal with tasks/duties and not just hide under the blankets!

Mercury into Aries – March 13th until April 1st – just a quickie as he’s only in Aries for 2 weeks. Mental and verbal energy is active and may be aggressive here, but upside is confidence to speak up and out to develop your projects and goals.

Sun into Aries @ Equinox March 20th – and so begins our new NATURAL YEAR! One of the simplest ways we can empower our lives is to align our activities with the natural year. Aries is the first sign thus features include ACTION ENTERPRISE INITIALIZING RISK COURAGE BRAVERY. It’s even better to wait until the New Moon in Aries on the 28th for full systems ahead!

  • “Wet the baby’s head”…welcome & set your intentions for your new year!
  • Own your “right to have a will and assert yourself”
  • Get in touch with your heroic brave self  – have adventures – do risky things ‘safely’
  • Begin projects and/or commit to initializing new actions in your life
  • Register business name or initialize growth plans for existing business

New Moon March 28th @ 7 degrees Aries – The ruler of Aries is Mars who is placed in Taurus on this new moon, thus it’s wise to temper our fresh enterprise and action with very practical foundations. Mars in Taurus likes steady building processes and offers tenacity and strength to your endeavors.

Saturn joins the Galactic Centre @ 27 degrees Sagittarius throughout March & April & for the final pass in late November 2017. The GC is the black hole that emanates the magnetisms for our whole Galaxy & Solar System. It’s so interesting that it’s position in Sagittarius underpins the whole nature of our human nature…the belief systems that drive our evolutionary growth! This is a significant point in Saturn’s cycle as the last time he was here was 1988…the prelude to the massive events of 1989 – fall of Berlin Wall & the arrival of Russia & China into the globalization systems. So are we also currently poised for some really big global re-arrangements from next year when Uranus enters Taurus & Saturn enters Capricorn?

Jupiter in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn @ 19 degrees – They made their first square in Nov 16 with now this one in late March & the final pass is in August 17. Their cycle began in Dec 2007 and was a major factor in the 2008 GFC. So we can expect more challenging plutocratic & economic activity in 2017 with the themes of power, money and resources. Personally we can set big goals.

Here’s a link to a youtube interview I did for inclusion in a series & book on the nature of DESTINY & Fate. I cover core ideas about the Sun & Moon in Astrology and you may find it interesting…hope so! And I am now only weeks away from launching my new Membership Program as Sun enters Aries…yay!

Stay tuned for my first offering… Onward & upward we go my friends – have a fantastic March daring to live your dreams!  Love to all Maggie

LOTS more info & insights re these major shifts in my 2017 Global Report & Horoscopes…

Feb 2017 Astro Update…

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (1)

Well folks I said we were in for a crazy ride in 2017 and so far the wildcard unexpected events have totally lived up to expectations!! I  also said that things would go off with a bang on the New Moon in Aqua on 28th as Mars also entered Aries…we sure have entered an unprecedented era in modern history now haven’t we?

So let’s have a look at what’s next in the unfolding reality drama as February brings us

  • Sun in Aqua & Mercury into Aqua
  • Venus into Aries to join Mars
  • Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Feb 11th
  • Sun into Pisces Feb 19th
  • New Moon Solar Eclipse Feb 27th

It’s a great time to book in for your 2017 year ahead chart

Well kids welcome to a brand new phase in global affairs! The Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries forces have unleashed the radical shifts they are notorious for, and many people are reeling at the speed & impact of events over the recent weeks.

I am so aware of consciously holding my center as I observe the many views and opinions and reactions that I am witnessing. The polarization of the Jupiter/Uranus story are front and center right now, so the question becomes how do we manage this stuff and personally find the positive and truly exciting opportunities also on offer in this amazing astroscape?

Ok we’re now in Aquarius time as our Sun moves through the constellation of the Water Carrier.

  • This is the 11th stage in our natural year where we invite the innovative  ideas & solutions we’re going to need to activate our lives in 2017
  • …so we can initialize our activities when Sun enters Aries
  • …and in between gestate and nurture these ideas in Pisces time…got it!

OK let’s unpack this…as they say these days. So right now our focus needs to be on this Aquarian ideas thing as we also say yes to change even if it makes us a little uncomfortable. For many this change urge is massive hence the chaotic unpredictable features ‘out there’, so yes we all need to re-invent ourselves over the next 10 months and take some risks to do this. And we have great support from Saturn in this process to affect expansion & change with practical & steady progress…don’t forget this!

Remember that woven into our current social fabric is fear and uncertainty! Indeed this is the essence of the old 3D Reality program, and right now these carefully orchestrated events are amplifying this to peak expression!! I see this as a time bringing things to a crescendo – like an ultimate opportunity to really get this  limiting old ‘control tape’. So what happens if we’re not frightened? Liberation. This is the true essence of Aquarius my friends, where we are free to tap into unlimited Mind and become a conduit for fab and rad new solutions that will fuel the true renaissance unfolding in these chaotic times.

Aquarius offers us the highest point of the humanitarian, collective, we are all one, principle.  So it’s not surprising that the immigration/refugee issues are front and center, albeit still being woefully misunderstood, or responsibility taken for why we live in a bounteous world where so many have so little, and suffer from the actions of war makers.

Aquarius rules politics and global systems and we expect a lot of our politicians. They are meant to have ready answers to the very problems they have created. I’ve been very open over the years in sharing the belief that there is a rather nefarious global elite group who set policy behind the scenes and then use political and media and banking systems toward an end goal of ‘global domination’.  So right now I encourage you all to keep a very open mind and objective position as we watch this latest installment of the chess game.

It’s been obvious for decades now that no matter how gracious and charming or rude and belligerent a leader may be they are all serving either themselves or their masters…or both. This is why Aquarius also takes us beyond politics and into community.  ‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world.’ said Mahatma Gandhi as he midwifed the birth of his country during times of massive change and conflict.

It is through our personal commitment to giving birth to healthy community social enterprise that we can bypass the political and financial crap they have created! On that note here are Gandhi’s 10 rules for Changing the World: VERY COOL bless him!

  1. Change yourself. “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
  2. You are in control. “Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
  3. Forgive and let it go. “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” “An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
  4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere. “An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
  5. Take care of this moment. “I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.”
  6. Everyone is human. “I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.”
  7. Persist. “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
  8. See the good in people and help them. “I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.” “Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.” “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”
  9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” “Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”
  10. Continue to grow and evolve. ”Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.”

As peacemaker Venus joins Mars in Aries on Feb 4th we get to choose to create inner & outer HARMONY in the midst of fear and conflict!! She is at her best here when our confidence ‘attracts’ others for mutual growth…remember ‘we get more bees with honey’!

And with Mars still firing up all sorts of aggressive stuff it’s SO IMPORTANT not to buy into personal and global dramas my friends, as in such polarized times arguing the point is a no win situation and just keeps perpetrating the collective conflicted tensions…but we’re not doing that are we???!!! Keep your focus and don’t get distracted by all the shite!!

Messenger Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius on Feb 7th…hoorah!! OMGoddess I am so over Mercury and his very long haul through Capricorn since early December…yes he did his retrograde here and it’s been a tad tiresome…albeit productive.SO now the Messenger God is free to be as clever and inventive as he likes after all that worry and serious stuff! I love Mercury in Aqua as our minds can free range into all manner of out of the box connections and inventive stuff. He’s here until late Feb when he then glides into Pisces.

OK so now we need to have a look at the February Eclipses – the first of which is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Feb 11th (Fri or Sat depending on your zone). So the Sun in Aqua opposes the Moon in Leo @ 22 degrees. This is first of the Leo/Aqua eclipses over the next 18 months with echoes back to 1998/9…the previous 19 year cycle. This brings us major political (Aqua) and leadership (Leo) scenarios & with Jupiter in Libra + Saturn in Sagittarius + Uranus in Aries in strong connection with the eclipse, we can expect more unpredictable bits playing out in the 2017 drama (don’t forget you can mute the control on your TV & Media exposure!)

Especially when we look back on previous cycles in 1998/9 – 1979/80 – 1961/2 – 1952/3 – 1943/4 & 1934/5. I love my job! It’s always such fun when I do my research and find these amazing correlations. In each case we’ve had major economic/political dramas & the arising of new phases. The 1934/5 eclipses connects with the last time Jupiter/Libra opposed Uranus/Aries. Bells & whistles?

BTW this Lunar Eclipse is all over Mr Trump as his SUN plus Uranus in Gemini & MOON opposite in Sag are lit up exactly! OMG this is the ultimate stage he’s been aspiring for all his life!! We don’t know if he’s going to crash & burn over the next 10 months…whether he is the stooge being set up by the Elite when they decide to create the next GFC & it will be his fault…whether he’s brought in the Goldman Sachs swamp people because he owes them so much money…whether he is going for the ultimate prize of complete control in his own right…or whether he really has the best interests of us all in his heart & he’s going to break the Global Elite system. FASCINATING!

Please don’t forget that everyone has their own opinion here, hence the furious controversy game being waged by the media. So it’s very cool not to buy in to the drama! Our job in 2017 is to hold the space of PEACE and CO-OPERATION inspired by knowing that we are simply passing through the ‘eye of the needle’ between the past & the future!  We are in such a similar time as the French & American Revolutions when people also said no to immoral & exploitive practices.  Kings lost their heads then and nations were born. No doubt about it we are living in interesting times!

So how do we use this personally I hear you ask? OK so eclipses are portals that energetically align SUN MOON EARTH to upgrade the Matrix to create new levels of consciousness. This one is cool as it stimulates our urge for change and innovation (Uranus)  but we also know it’s cool to do this carefully (Saturn). It also offers direct stimulation to get thoughts & ideas moving but at the same time it’s wise to wait for a few weeks after the eclipse to actually take action. Ideally we open new activity after the Sun moves into Aries on March 21st – this is launch date or our new natural year.

Lunar eclipses are very emotionally reactive at the best of times but never more so than when in Aqua/Leo! Yep it’s cool to avoid direct confrontation over coming weeks, even if you are really angry about current events. Instead we can use these forces to give ourself permission to open new directions and invite wonderful partners to join us. Expect the unexpected! If you have planets around 22 degrees of fixed signs…Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius your life is about to open a new era….and it’s very exciting. Moon in Leo can bring new levels of acknowledgement and Sun in Aqua allows us to affect society for positive conscious change!

Ah then we have our Sun moving into the sublime and inspirational sign of Pisces on Feb 19th. This is the final sign of the 12-fold Zodiac process and signals the completion of our natural year. Ideally we are meant to release the past cycle, distill the best of our experiences to take forward with us, and gestate our dreams and inspiration for the year ahead. So sage or purify your home, take lots of mineral baths to cleanse your aura and take time to rest & reflect as much as you can. We create our reality via our imagination & psychic projections so this is a great time to create your ‘vision board’ for what you wish to manifest after March 21st when Sun enters Aries and our new year truly begins! Your mantra is “I go with the flow inspired that I am creating the reality that I deserve”.

Meanwhile we also have the Solar Eclipse @ 8 degrees Pisces coming up on Feb 27th. This is the last of the Pisces/Virgo eclipses over the last 18 months. And yep there’s some bells & whistles on this one also. With Jupiter & Uranus performing their 2nd opposition joined by Mars in Aries we have another dose of wildcard activity for disruption of global affairs…”danger danger Will Robinson.” Take it as easy as possible in late Feb my friends as you also respond to some fab incoming opportunities!

Things are speedy now so once again the caution is to not make life changing decisions over coming weeks as they may be driven by frustration…just watch for incoming signals!! Uranus liberates old stuck patterns, Jupiter says be wise & Saturn says be realistic. The really big opportunity here offers us a personal upgrade in our conscious growth so we make a positive contribution to a more enlightened world.

I am heartened by expert Astrologer Bernadette Brady’s reading of this Eclipse Cycle – “This is a family of eclipses that brings with it the element of the pleasant surprise. Sudden happiness, a joyful event, the lucky break, the lucky win. The events which will be occurring can be believed and can positively change the person’s life”. We can feel the effect of Eclipses for a month or so proceeding then they are affective for 6 months until the second set in August 2017.

Have a fabulous February my friends as the winds of change swirl around us turning us in interesting new directions!! Love to all Maggie

Jan 2017 Astro Highlights

Year of Rooster!

2017 is going to amazing! There is a fresh and audacious wind blowing away the cobwebs of the past taking us in new directions, so stay positive & clear that you CAN use these fabulous startling new ingredients to create the life you want. Here’s my YOUTUBE for quick overview for 2017 influences…

2017 Global Astrology Report & Horoscopes – scroll down to end of this post…
Despite the slow start to our year courtesy of lots of planets in Piscesville AND Mercury retro, things are about to hot up with:

  • Full Moon Capricorn/Cancer Thurs 12th
  • Mercury in Cap – now direct
  • Sun into Aquarius – Fri 20th
  • New Moon Aquarius – Sat 28th!
  • Year of the Rooster – Sat 28th!
  • Mars into Aries – Sat 28th!

Well it sure looks like things will take off with a rush after Jan 28th doesn’t it? With the Aquarian New Moon opening the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster PLUS the entrance of Mars into Aries we have action stations from Jan 28th! The NEW ONE YEAR that energizes 2017 is underpinned by the connection between Revolutionary Uranus and Progressive Jupiter triggering the unfolding liberation from the past toward a peaceful co-operative future!

The Jupiter in Libra/Uranus in Aries opposition – not since 1934 have these guys opposed each other in Libra/Aries so yep this is very significant. Jupiter made his first opposition to Uranus on December 23rd 2016; the next in late Feb/early March; and for the last time in late Sept 17. Big changes in personal & political alliances and partnerships from this one, as well as the sudden urge to expand and break free into new territory. Together they bring us the “heroic explorer” archetype to morph us into new dimensions of social and techno evolution.

The Jupiter/Uranus opposition has great connection with Saturn in Sagittarius offering supportive structures & practical strategies to underpin the big changes on the way, along with the ‘dissemination’ or spread of the new era ideas, innovations & technologies. This also takes the ‘people power’ movement into greater expression internationally. LOTS more info & insights re these major shifts in my 2017 Global Report & Horoscopes…

So this big Full Moon on Thursday 12th sits smack bang on the Jupiter/ Saturn/ Uranus team… as Sun in Cap opposite Moon in Cancer is @ 22 degrees… and so are these revolutionary dudes! The very nature Full Moons are always emotionally charged and never more so than when the Moon is in Cancer (once a year). And as transformer Pluto is in Cap with the Sun we can expect some pretty highly charged feelings due for release on this one. It is definitely a precursor for the deeper implications of the incoming Trump presidency at both social & business levels as Cap rules corporate/govt systems. Stock markets have been riding high since his win on the expectation that he will miraculously re-invent & reinvigorate business, so as they say “we shall see” if this FMoon either bursts the bubble…or offers some weird & wonderful new ingredients in the reality show of 2017!

Personally we need to check in with how we feel about change, because it’s there for us all in some form over the next 10 months. So take a few minutes to stop and close your eyes and say… “I am SAFE – it is safe for me to set amazing new goals that expand & re-invent my life – it’s safe to let go of the past & welcome this exciting new phase of my life”. OK do this every day right through to Saturday February 28th when the… New Moon @ 8 degrees Aquarius opens the Year of the Fire Rooster AND Mars enters Aries…his sign. This coincides with our fresh ONE year in the numerology cycle from ONE to NINE…

A Rooster year is often marked by brilliant success for those who have patiently worked to build a business project, whilst others may wish to change their professional environment. Either way we must manage the stress of this highly creative phase with a commitment to activate and organize our goals.  I love the way the zodiac systems from different cultures reflect the features of each other, as this synchs perfectly with the Jupiter/Uranus/Saturn energies doesn’t it? The Aquarian New Moon opens this 11th phase in our Natural Year when we naturally gravitate toward the future and connect with the urge for change and re-invention…the themes of Aquarius.

The NMoon is ruled by both Saturn in Sag & Uranus in Aries – So our urge to re-invent and dare to risk the new is creatively linked with fresh knowledge and new horizons and people. Aquarius ignites new sparks…Saturn says keep it real and stay grounded.

To create the freedom of Aquarius we have to ‘liberate’ people, things, attitudes, ideas, world views and what we used to believe kept us safe. We have to become ‘objective’, which does not mean detached or distant so we can cut off or out…or other nasty hurtful actions. It means stepping up to a very cool place where we ‘observe’ the world and don’t emotionally blow up or out…so we can make conscious choices and decisions. This after all is the whole point of the ‘shift’ from unconscious to conscious…or ‘Unity Consciousness’ where we are ‘free to unite our rational left brain with our intuitive right brain.

So the question becomes do you really trust yourself to be free? Who will you be? Who and what do you need to release? Are you willing to expand your reality with new ideas and technology so you may move forward? Your mantra is “I am now free to be me”. Once we jump on the change machine we invite and attract all kinds of splendid new unexpected developments.

Mercury finally completes his run through Capricorn after his retrograde time from Dec 19th until January 8th. I see this as a great ingredient in the midst of so much other fire and air action, as it anchors our thoughts & words into reality and helps us keep things steady in otherwise turbulent and unchartered territory.

Mars continues through Pisces until Jan 28th when he enters Aries and Venus spends the month in Pisces Water water everywhere as beautiful Venus now joins  Mars Neptune Chiron & South Node in Pisces! Whoosh! SO if you’re wondering why it’s been a slow start to the year this is why, as despite the big Jupiter/Uranus/Saturn energies doing their thing to awaken our world changing 2017, this Pisces gang offer us gestative dreaming time before action kicks in later in January.

You may feel a bit like the Pisces fishies swimming in opposite directions as the pull to the future requires you first complete the past! Tune into your feelings and go with the flow in full trust that your dear Soul has everything in perfect order, and the dreams you hold will begin to form when the time and energies are ready. So don’t push now and tune in to your intuition! Enjoy the PEACE & be aware that all sorts of mis-truths are flying so don’t buy into reacting. T

his all changes big time when first Mars charges into Aries on Feb 28th followed by Venus on Feb 3rd. Aries is the sign of birth and new beginnings, the sign of the pioneer adventurer, entrepreneur and those who “bravely go where no wo/man have been before”! Be aware that Mars is Aries brings the urge for impulsive action & can be a tad selfish, so yes you’ll be impatient to get on with things & not very good at suffering fools gladly!! Thus the obvious caution is to look before you leap but don’t be frightened to leap!!

These are fab energies to initialize new bizz projects or take action in any area you’ve been preparing for but have been feeling that the time hasn’t been quite right…up until now! And with Jupiter in Libra such a prominent underpinning force it’s essential to enlist support & co-operation with the people & resources you need to grow.

Things hot up another notch in late Feb when Mars in Aries connects with Uranus & Jupiter. We’ll look at this in more detail in my Feb newsletter. SO stay chilled over the next few weeks as you use your visualization tools and clear intention to build your energies for the fab new beginnings from Feb 28th my friends. Love to us all in these very exciting tricky times!! Maggie

Dec 2016 Astro Report

december-2016Exciting expanding forces in December give us the heads up for 2017! Well I said Scorpio time in November would be a game changer and it sure was! Whether you see these as the best of times or the worst of times the bottom line is they are changing times! A quick YOUTUBE video below for overview & scroll down for

 

  • New & Full Moon Sagittarius details
  • Mars & Venus in Aquarius
  • Mercury in Capricorn retrograde dates
  • Capricorn Solstice & New Moon as we bid farewell to 2016 & use our hearts & minds to make 2017 “the best of times”

On that note it’s time to book in for your 2017 year ahead chart

The most important day this month is New Years Eve on December 31st!!
Please spread the word to friends & family to join “The World Healing Meditation” at midnight as MILLIONS of us unite hearts & minds to focus our loving intention toward a safe and sustainable transition into the NEW ONE YEAR that is 2017.
May the light of consciousness guide us as we pass through the unfolding revolution from the past toward a peaceful co-operative future!

The New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29th set the stage for the massive change waves that have been building all year to begin to break on our personal & collective beaches!! We are now free to write our new script inspired to believe that our dreams can come true…so visualize riding your surfboard like Mic Fanning…hot fast AND elegant!! Sag is the feature in each of us containing positivity and optimism, and the belief that we are ready to attract luck and good fortune…because we deserve it!!

The numbers are fab here as 29th Nov is 11.11 a double dose of the Aquarian master number, where we tap into ‘the mind of God’ to download our Soul’s purpose for the coming year. BTW 2017 is also a brand new ONE year thus we are in the final month of a NINE year cycle as we release the past and vision the future.

Jupiter in Libra rules the NMoon and he’s in fine connection to Mars in Aquarius enhancing the new beginning/freedom theme BUT also can suggest BIG social unrest. SO it’s essential to send your thoughts & intention to healthy progressive liberating change for you and your loved ones and all of humanity in these tense times.

As Sag rules the media expect major announcements & big stories during December, and as the whole 2016 drama has been all about TRUTH & LIES we are challenged to speak the first and discern the second!! Make like a wise archer and avoid conflict over ideals and ideas and remember the old saying “Talk sense to a fool and he calls you a fool”!!

Sun catches Saturn in Sag on Dec 10th/11th so make the best of this serious few days to work hard and achieve heaps toward your future vision and goals. As both Jupiter & Uranus are lined up with this it’s also very cool for big ideas and important alliances & connections.

Mercury is in Capricorn for the month and turns retrograde on Dec 19th until January 8th. I see this as a great ingredient in the midst of so much other fire and air action, as it anchors our thoughts & words into reality and helps us keep things steady in otherwise turbulent and unchartered territory. Remember the 3 weeks of retrograde time are excellent for re-thinking/organizing/planning/details! Not so good for purchasing IT stuff or signing contracts if you can avoid it, and yes xmas new year travel plans may be a tad challenging so stay cool if you are on the move!

Mars continues through Aquarius until December 19th when he enters Pisces. A reminder of my words from last month’s post … “Mars has a 2-year cycle so last time in Aquarius was late 2014.  He can be very naughty and provocative in Aquarius as he’s free to activate rebel energy to his heart’s content. This is the sign of humanity, society, the collective and all manner of groups & causes that strive to make the world a better place. Aquarius has everything to do with politics so no surprise when weird and totally unexpected events unfold from the day after the election!! The freedom revolution energies will be wild here, thus we must stay in our healthy observer mode  as things unfold! Honestly can it get any more weird? YES!!

Trump appeals to those affected by the global elite corporate systems (despite him having made his money through them) that have brought us globalization, trade agreements and blatant abuse of financial systems. The trouble is that whilst his maverick agenda is to stand against these things, his flawed personality does not represent a safe or healthy expression of this position. But he’s speaking of these things and lots of people are listening. They will excuse him anything for the sake of change. SO it’s him V the Hillary camp who are the very agents of global policy that rewards the corrupt bankers & corporates by promoting oil wars & terrorism that keep the massive munitions and surveillance industries so prosperous. We are seeing the chaos factor writ large over coming months so it will be totally interesting to see what’s next regardless of who wins!!

The key here is the CHANGE urge on every level. People are fed up with the NeoCon system that lies and cheats & corrupts and disenfranchises the rights of individuals and animals and our environment. These are the vital years giving birth to a new world beyond the old paradigm of fear and lack and scarcity. Personally our energies gravitate toward the future as we are energized with our own urge for freedom and change. Aquarius regulates Group Consciousness so use this period to join with like minded others in teams & groups to build energy around 2017 outcomes!

Venus also steps into Aquarius on 7th Dec for the rest of the month stimulating the freedom urge yet again…this time in the relationship department! Boring dreary people & situations will be way too hard to tolerate as we want original thinking cool new chemistry to stimulate us. Yep no clingy needy stuff on this one and if you’ve been putting up with limiting old situations for too long Venus in Aqua will move things along!

December 14th Full Moon @ 22degrees Sag with Moon in Gemini brings the next step in the unfolding personal and global shifts, and as full moons heighten polarized tensions there will be all kinds of words flying on this one! This FMoon is exactly on both Trump’s Gemini Sun AND Saggie Moon so no doubt there will be stories and words flying about and from The Donald. Personally you may feel pulled between two directions and extremes and be jumping from one to the other every 5 minutes, so it’s best to wait a week until Sun enters Capricorn and use the FMoon energies to gather data and info so you can make informed decisions…PLUS your own meditation time to ask for guidance for wise choices! Upside is a great few weeks to set up connections and alliances with people & groups who can advance your life into 2017, especially to do with writing/teaching/publishing & international travel.

Jupiter in Libra (since September until Oct 2017) picks up speed throughout the month and steps into the fray of the Uranus/Pluto Zap Zone as he opposes Uranus from the 23rd Dec till the end of the year. This is the first of 3 passes of this major alignment and they remain in tight connection right through Jan Feb & March 2017 with a final pass in late September. This is the half way or full point in their 12 year cycle which began in 2011. This combo ups the urge for freedom and innovation big time and can bring sudden bolts of change either from you toward current people & situations OR at you from work situations & partners who have outlived their role in your life. The big caution here is to make sure you don’t throw out the baby with the bath water as you seek to revolutionize your life and create space for exciting new people and adventures to unfold in 2017.

Ambitious Saturn also gets in the act with Jupiter and Uranus for the first of three (also) connections by month end, setting the stage for the opening salvos of personal & global upgrades during 2017. Lots more on this in my 2017 Global Report which will be ready asap!

Sun moves into Capricorn on Dec 21st opening the 10th Stage of our Natural Year as he reaches the 3/4 phase known as the SOLSTICE – midwinter & summer in the south. The traditions associated with the solstice arise from the northern hemisphere where their mid winter time was a period of ‘darkness’ before the Sun begins it’s journey back toward the ‘light’ in Springtime on March 21st at the Equinox when day and night are of equal length. Hence ancient people and pagan groups had their various ‘rites of passage’ to invoke the light to return and life to re-new itself once more.

The Roman festival of ‘Saturnalia’ honored Saturn, who was an agricultural deity (planet that rules Capricorn) and was held on the 17th of December of the Julian calendar followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere that overturned Roman social norms: gambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves. The poet Catullus called it “the best of days.” With the rise of Christianity this festival was absorbed into their tradition as the birth of Christ (even though nobody knows when he was born), symbolizing the re-birth of life after darkness once again. They celebrated ‘Christ’s Mass’ and this has of course become Christmas. Then along comes a kind Saint by the name of Saint Nicholas of Myra, a 4th-century Greek Christian bishop who was famous for his generous gifts to the poor. Eh viola we have an amalgamation of these traditions all rapt up in our current festive season. Islam also has a ‘Festival’ or ‘Celebration’ known as ‘Eid’ which is celebrated throughout the world by all Muslims. It is equivalent to Christians celebrating Christmas.  The Jewish festival that also coincides with this time is known as Hanukkah (also romanized as Chanukah) known as the Festival of Lights, Feast of Dedication and is an eight-day Jewish holiday.

The next New Moon is @ 8 degrees Capricorn on December 29th It’s a peculiar situation when our final new moon for the calendar year is in Capricorn, which in terms of our natural year beginning on March 21st actually means we are three quarters of the way through the true year! Yes they mucked that up back in 1592 when Pope Gregory decided Jan 1st would begin the ‘Christian Calendar! This actually explains why our world has been out of synch with nature ever since!! So keep this in mind as you wind down your working year as the month that opens on this next new moon in Cap is actually a very powerful and productive period if you are inclined! This is because Cap represents the peak of activity…the top of the mountain when all our efforts since March are actually due to reach fulfillment, and I guess in many ways this does hold true, as we all are working hard to complete projects so we can have the festive break and a little rest before we head into what will be another amazing year of growth and change in 2017.

My best wishes to you for a warm and generous festive season as we are united in our re-birth process beyond religion or beliefs! Have a fabulous month!!!!

Your December mantra is “I now expand my reality with vision, purpose and optimism” !”

Nov 2016 Astro Report – Halloween New Moon in Scorpio

scorpio-eagleWelcome to the most interesting November we’ve had in a very long time! Yep the strangest US election in modern history happening on Nov 8th is smack bang in the middle of Scorpio time, so thought it might be fun to post the charts of Hilary & Donald AND the USA so you can call the result…cause I’m not up for it…lol I’ll also be covering the Halloween New Moon in Scorpio PLUS Mars changing signs into Aquarius…yay PLUS Mercury into Sagittarius…yay AND the beginning of the big connection between Saturn & Uranus…yay yay! Yep lots of shifts & changes on the way IN NOVEMBER! On that note it’s time to book in for your 2017 year ahead chart

Here’s the youtube overview for Nov – scroll down for in-depth rundown!

New Moon in Scorp on October  31st @ 9 degrees setting the tone for the deep forces at work during November. This is the Halloween New Moon arising from the traditional festival known as “Samhain”. The ancient Celts believed that the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead was at its thinnest during Samhain, thereby making it a good time to communicate with the deceased and to divine the future. Samhain is Gaelic for “summer’s end’.

So here we see the connection to this Scorpio New Moon each year when the deep invisible forces are at their most intense! And even more so this year as the New Moon has a sweet connection to Neptune in Pisces, increasing the sensitivity big time! We get to FEEL things at a heightened level with a call to allow time & energy over the first few days of November to tune in to intuition for insights and downloading messages from Soul. Dream big dreams and then use your Scorpio magnetism to build the energies of creation.

But there’s another big feature at the New Moon that ain’t all soft and sensitive, and that’s action planet Mars making hard aspect with maverick Uranus. These boys bring restlessness, impulsiveness & the desire to be free of constrictions. Channeled wisely we’re talking startling insights & ideas for re-inventing career areas with an ongoing goal for creative change in your life. The message here is don’t wait until situations have become intolerable before you reform them, or you risk sudden explosive events because you’re feeling so frustrated…got it?

Scorpio is the 8th stage of our natural year  when we get to ‘rise like the phoenix’ beyond the fears & constraints of our lower nature. Poor old Scorp gets such a bad rap, as we are conditioned to resist the natural process that take us from birth through growth, fulfilment, and death…& as surely as day follows night once we confront our demons and dragons we are born again better than we were. I mean really isn’t this the essence of nature as the 4 seasons?

Scorp regulates the transformational regenerative process that helps us release the past and let go of our ego/mind control, so we may ‘penetrate the Soul mystery’ that actually sparks new purpose & meaning to arise in Sagittarius time. Very elegant system isn’t it? Scorp allows us to examine our desires for purity of intention so TRUE POWER can arise from our core center…lovely!

SO make like an eagle and release old insecurities & uncertainties that keep you locked in power struggles or situations where you feel disempowered or helpless. Are you safe enough to allow your vulnerable self to trust others? Remember downside Scorp is the jealousy & vengeance & control dramas of very unsafe people…hence the bad rap! Also a note that our world is run by behind the scene Scorp types…AKA psychopaths!

Upside Scorp brings regenerative healing & renewal, deep sensual connection & closeness, and the joy of feeling our power without having to prove a thing!!  Your mantra is “It’s safe for me to be powerful”

Mercury is also in Scorp early month inclining us to deep introspective thinking…great for research and intimate chats…what’s really going on beneath the surface of things…secrets and hidden agendas. He’s also connected with Neptune in Pisces so at best we have divine alignment with higher intuition & guidance. Take time to meditate or however you still your busy worry mind to allow calm focus and insight from guides and the other side. He heads into Sagittarius on the 13th for a blast of fresh mental stimulus and vision… widening your horizons…expanding your dreams. Suit cases, planes & cars feature big time for the second half of November…goodie!

Meanwhile Venus in Sagittarius until the 12th enhances renewed optimism especially since she has moved past dreary old Saturn in late October, so is now free to move forward with fresh purpose. She’s up for planning trips and fresh adventures into 2017 and meeting cool people at seminars & training sessions. She makes a fab connection with change agent Uranus on the 5th bringing interesting new people & possibilities. She then heads into Capricorn on the 12th to pick up where Mars has just completed energizing career goals & aspirations…yep we’ve been working hard! SO now Venus brings her social relating skills to attract partners & associates to develop goals another notch

November 8th is Election day so scroll down for charts if you’re interested. As I mention the US election it is with an objective view of the story rather than about the personalities of Trump & Clinton. Trump appeals to those affected by the global elite corporate systems (despite him having made his money through them) that have brought us globalization, trade agreements and blatant abuse of financial systems. The trouble is that whilst his maverick agenda is to stand against these things, his flawed personality does not represent a safe or healthy expression of this position. But he’s speaking of these things and lots of people are listening. They will excuse him anything for the sake of change. SO it’s him V the Hillary camp who are the very agents of global policy that rewards the corrupt bankers & corporates by promoting oil wars & terrorism that keep the massive munitions and surveillance industries so prosperous. We are seeing the chaos factor writ large over coming months so it will be totally interesting to see what’s next regardless of who wins!!

The key here is the CHANGE urge on every level. People are fed up with the NeoCon system that lies and cheats & corrupts and disenfranchises the rights of individuals and animals and our environment. These are the vital years giving birth to a new world beyond the old paradigm of fear and lack and scarcity. SO many of us have been passing through our personal ‘dark night of the Soul’ as we let go of our fears and strive to step into the ‘new consciousness’ where we are liberated from this old shite & empowered to create a positive productive useful reality.

November 9th Mars enters Aquarius until December 19th making my Aquarian heart sing as I’m looking forward to a fresh blast of fire and passion…goodness knows I need it! Mars has a 2-year cycle so last time in Aquarius was late 2014…if you can remember back that far! He can be very naughty and provocative in Aquarius as he’s free to activate rebel energy to his heart’s content. This is the sign of humanity, society, the collective and all manner of groups & causes that strive to make the world a better place. Aquarius has everything to do with politics so no surprise when weird and totally unexpected events unfold from the day after the election!! The freedom revolution energies will be wild here, thus we must stay in our healthy observer mode  as things unfold! Honestly can it get any more weird? YES!!

Personally our energies gravitate toward the future as we are energized with our own urge for freedom and change. I call Aquarius the frequency where we ‘tap into the mind of God’ as this is the sign of the inventor and innovator who bring in the ideas that propel us forward. Visualize a big circuit board up in the galaxy/universe and plug yourself in!! As long as your intentions are for uplifting and improving society then you have the power to activate your “Alchemist” self to “beam me up Scotty”! Aquarius regulates Group Consciousness so use this 6 week period to join with like minded others in teams & groups to build energy around 2017 outcomes!

Mars in Aquarius forms a splendid trine to Jupiter in Libra right at the end of the month and through the first week of December & I’m loving it! This is an extremely lucky time as strength of purpose motivates you big time and you’re able to see the big picture with greater foresight that in ages. A great time to advance your interests and you’ll find it easy to make major decisions that you’ve been treading water over. Bottom line here is EXPANDED CONSCIOUSNESS the true goal of these tricky challenging times we have been negotiating. Make the most of this one!!

November 14th Full Moon @ 22 degrees Scorpio/Taurus. This brings resources territory front and center as you negotiate your investments and the people you transact with for ‘joint resources’…of all kinds. There’s not a lot of other planets involved here, except good old change agent Uranus in Aries impelling us to free up stale old situations and step up your prosperity consciousness. Full Moons release the energy of the Sun…in this case Scorpio so don’t forget to enjoy the deep sensual feeling connections that this one offers. Great day for a day in the garden, then a yummy meal & wine, then who knows what?!

Jupiter in Libra (since September until Oct 2017) picks up speed throughout the month in preparation for stepping into the fray of the Uranus/Pluto Zap Zone as he connects with Uranus in December. Stay tuned for more on this next time as we get set for the big bells and whistles going off late December and welcoming in the New Year…and I’m not just talking new year fireworks. Yep 2017 is going to be a blast.

Sun moves into Sagittarius on Nov 21st  bringing us to the 9th Stage of our Natural Year when our Heroic self steps back out from the Scorpio underworld, freshly empowered and transformed, jumps on our trusty steed and heads out into the exciting future. Your November mantra is “I’m in my power & excited by my future…I’m ready to fly !” 

Election Charts & Details

usa-nov-8th-electionNote Jupiter in Libra within 2 degrees of conjunction to USA Saturn in 10th – previous cycles brought us George W Bush in 2004 and Bill Clinton in 1992.

hilary-clinton-nov-8th-electionNote Scorpio Sun + Pisces Moon on election day resonate well with Hilary’s chart as she has Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Pisces. The Sun is on her Venus considered a fortunate connection. Uranus in Aries in exact trine to her Saturn in Leo suggesting a change in her status. She has Saturn with Mars and Pluto in Leo…this is where we experience her tough combative style and leadership drive, in contrast to her strong Sun in Scorpio & Moon in Pisces water nature. This is the behind the scenes power/secretive feature..

donald-trump-nov-8th-electionNote Scorpio Sun & Pisces Moon on election day do not particularly connect with his planets. Uranus in Aries DOES trine his Moon in Sagittarius & sextile his Sun energizing the maverick wildcard feature he is renowned for. However on Jan 20th inauguration day Jupiter in Libra activates his Sun & Moon big time, so who knows what he has in store!!

OK folks that’s it from me hope you’ve enjoyed the show!! Have a fabulous month!!!!

Just a mention that I’m taking bookings for 2017 Astrology Year Ahead Sessions and I do have gift certificates.

Full Moon Libra/Aries Oct 16th

full-moon-libra

Sat night’s Full Moon in Libra brings freedom, invention, liberation & change! Bring it on I say! As long as you’re ready to dare to fly you’re going to love this one, as it offers new frontiers & independent thinking people to play with, who also embrace stepping outside the box. This is all courtesy of revolutionary Uranus joining the Moon in Aries PLUS modern planet Eris, renowned for discord and chaotic ingredients to shake things up. So yes we can expect to see some emotional fur flying over coming weeks, but if you hold your center and keep your peace then marvelous shifts & accelerations bring major breakthroughs in your attitude & future circumstances.

With Mars & Pluto joined in Capricorn in the mix, our will & power are re-invigorated so we can take charge of our lives. They challenge us to send our energy toward our goals with foresight & careful structure, despite the urge for impulsive reactive moves.

In terms of the big picture in human evolution over these vital years we are meant to be healing old ‘separation’ issues, to enable ‘inclusive’ co-operative growth toward a sustainable future. So don’t buy into any old rejection patterns that damage or cause pain to yourself or others…got it?

What we are seeing enacted now is the power struggle between the old and the new, the past and the future…personally & collectively. As I mention the US election now it is with an objective view of the story rather than about the personalities of Trump & Clinton. Trump appeals to those affected by the global elite corporate systems (despite him having made his money through them) that have brought us globalization, trade agreements and blatant abuse of financial systems. The trouble is that whilst his maverick agenda is to stand against these things, his flawed personality does not represent a safe or healthy expression of this position. But he’s speaking of these things and lots of people are listening. They will excuse him anything for the sake of change. SO it’s him V the Hillary camp who are the very agents of global policy, that rewards the corrupt bankers & corporates by promoting oil wars & terrorism that keep the massive munitions and surveillance industries so prosperous. We are seeing the chaos factor write large with the bizarre Trump sex scandal in the lead-up to this NMoon, so it will be totally interesting to see what’s next!!

The key here is the CHANGE urge on every level. People are fed up with the NeoCon system that lies and cheats & corrupts and disenfranchises the rights of individuals and animals and our environment. These are the vital years giving birth to a new world beyond the old paradigm of fear and lack and scarcity. SO many of us have been passing through our personal ‘dark night of the Soul’ as we let go of our fears and strive to step into the ‘new consciousness’ where we are liberated from this old shite & empowered to create a positive productive useful reality.

This is the Full Moon that’s going to kick this whole process up a major notch. So make like a wise owl and observe the dance of power going on ‘out there’ as you say YES to progress into your new beginnings. Be brave and welcome the co-operative supportive people and their visions who will join with you!! This full moon brings emotional breakthroughs as our Soul initiates the next phase of our lives.
