Astro-LOA Flash for the day: The Sun shines brightly in Gemini while ruling Mercury slows way down, ready to turn retrograde opposite asteroid Karma. You want to engage in some timely self-reflection. Take a moment or two out of this day and ask: 1) where am I heading? 2) who do I love? 3) how can I participate?

Over at we’re talking about the Mercury Rx zone in the Transform with Transits course. (Note, we’re in it!). Check out where the sun is in your chart as it moves into Gemini, and where the Mercury Rx zone is asking you to review, reflect, rethink and remind yourself of who you are.

Athene – Prepaving with Power

Goddess Athene - Clarity - Spirit of Women Australian Wildflower Essence

Goddess Athene – Clarity – Spirit of Women Australian Wildflower Essence

Hi Everyone,

Some of you know I’m in the last two weeks of completing my Masters Degree, which explains the scarcity of posts this month. But, I’m nearly there, and taking a moment off to share an Astro-LOA Flash for the Weekend: Pallas Athene into Virgo!

Each of the FOUR MAJOR asteroid goddesses  (Ceres, Juno, Vesta, Pallas Athene) represents an aspect of the feminine—an aspect of inner relationship to the anima—that is meaningful to both men and women. When strong by house placement, sign or aspect in the chart and especially when linked with an inner planet or angle, greater understanding of our relationship needs can be gained by their study.

Ah, would that flashing-eyed Athena might choose to love thee even as then she cared exceedingly for glorious Odysseus [220] in the land of the Trojans, where we Achaeans suffered woes. For never yet have I seen the gods so manifestly shewing love, as Pallas Athena did to him, standing manifest by his side. If she would be pleased to love thee in such wise and would care for thee at heart, then would many a one of them utterly forget marriage.” –Apollodorus

Athene’s brand of love is protective, supportive and reportedly asexual. At heart, she is very much her father’s daughter. Leaping from the wound in Zeus’s head after Hephaestus, or perhaps Prometheus, split it with an axe, Athene was born full grown, dressed in golden armor and screaming a war cry. She proceeded to protect heroic men, guard the city of Athens and was worshiped as the goddess of war-craft, strategy, craftsmanship and wisdom. Unlike other Olympians, Athene was completely trusted by her father Zeus. She even got to use his thunderbolts and aegis. She holds no resentment towards him for swallowing whole her mother Metis, goddess of wisdom, and seems to reserve her attachments and allegiance to the king of the gods alone. Daddy’s girl, but oh boy is she strong!

Born without a mother, Pallas Athene is in some ways a magnificent and beautiful extension of Zeus (Jupiter, expansion, optimism, new possibilities), representing pure intellect untouched and uncontaminated by the body. His favorite child, Zeus indulges her every wish, even in the face of censure from the other Olympians. She is often depicted with a crested helm, shield and spear, and wearing the snake-trimmed aigis cloak wrapped around her breast and arm, adorned with the head of the Gorgon (more snakes – transformation). She’s also linked the the owl (wisdom). Read more about Athene and Medusa here.

Just as Pluto/Hades may be seen as a phallic representation of the matriarchal principal of death and regeneration, so Athene may embody a female image of the masculine principals of rational thinking, will and intellect. She is a representation of objectivity, fairness and justice (very Libra like, in this way). The power of her sword is as keen as the cutting edge of her mind and she was often called to arbitrate disputes, her impartial decisions being final. Athene takes us out of the world of raw instinct and desire, educating us to the realm of objective thought, unbiased choice and organized strategy. Pallas Athene, although regarded as femininely beautiful, is an androgynous figure, a goddess at home in the masculine realm. Athene was also adamantly celebrate.

Her avoidance of sexual intimacy with men, women or gods is a contrast to other “virgin” goddesses who, although they aligned themselves with no man, they still enjoyed the passions of lovemaking and rearing the resultant offspring. Athene, by most accounts, never gave birth and had no direct descendent. Although she shunned intimacy, she was loved and pursued by Helios, Hephaestus and some say Hercules. None of these gods or men won her over, and never, it seems, did Eros or Aphrodite cause her to fall in love, at least not in the traditional sense. Interesting!

But, Athene was passionate about her crafts, battles and the heroes she protected. She is reported to have transformed the blood of Medusa into a healing potion and is associated with the medicinal arts. Creative, multi-talented and dedicated, Athene may not lay with man/woman or god, but she does not withdraw from them either. She seeks the company of men in particular and relates to them as their divine counselor, protector and guide.

As Athene ingresses into the sign of earthy, sensual Virgo, she ignites Cor Regulus, the heart of the lion, representing courage, integrity and strength, our insights brim with life. New possibilities are seen and where there was chaos, a path through the forest appears. Think about where you have 0 degrees of Virgo in your chart. The house, angle or planet(s) you find there represents your wellspring of insights, objectivity and integrity – the perfect place to initiate Jeannette Maw’s practice of Pre-Paving. Also, think of this energy as acting on the body, squaring your shoulders, lengthening your spine and giving you that “wonder woman” stance, invincible, empowered, undaunted.

Where is Athene at 0 Virgo in your chart? What are you planning for? Comments and questions welcome.

The Secrets of the Odyssey (8): the Sirens, Scylla & Charybdis, and Thrinacia

Reading the Odyssey in a superb translation of Robert Fitzgerald is like listening to the most delightful music. No interpretation can possibly replace the sheer pleasure of experiencing Homer’s talent. The opening lines of Book XII read:

 “The ship sailed on, out of the Ocean Stream,

riding a long swell on the open sea

for the Island of Aiaia.

Summering Dawn

has dancing grounds there, and the Sun his rising;

but still by night we beached on a sand shelf

and waded in beyond the line of breakers

to fall asleep, awaiting the Day Star.”

On the island of Aiaia, Circe receives Odysseus and his companions, who have returned from Hades, with a lavish banquet. Later at night she tells Odysseus in great detail about his next adventures, what perils await him and what precautions he must take. It seems that at this moment Odysseus…

Transform with Transits – The Moon


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi everyone,

Our next course at GVA is called Transform with Transits. It’s a 10 week – 10 call exploration of the planetary transits and how they can boost your deliberate creation, get you in line with your authentic core values and give you the savvy to work and play with the energy at hand instead of resisting, or struggling against it. It’s a much better way to fly! (check out the introduction to transits video tutorial Part 1 and Part 2 here).

On week one, we start with the Moon, the ‘planet’ that transits everything in your natal chart every month. From there, each week we’ll build out through the solar system until we reach Pluto and beyond. We cover transits and progressions, orbs, timing, predictive techniques but mostly how to leverage the energy of each transit to work with your natural evolution, not against it.

On each call, we’ll be using your charts as examples (for those who would like to) and of course the course forum will be covering all the Q’s and A’s.

New Moon Eclipse in Taurus

The Flower Picker by John Waterhouse

“The Flower Picker” by John Waterhouse

ASTRO-LOA FLASH: April 28th/29th is the New Moon Eclipse @8 Taurus (a moon, sun and south lunar node conjunction) – another in the series of our NEW family of eclipses, the Taurus – Scorpio cycle.

This is a time where intentions, and Jeannette Maw’s pre-paving and saying it as you want it to be will have profound effect. Note: this is the first decanate of Taurus (Venus-Venus energy) and the Leo Dwad (Venus-Sun energy). Think:

 . . . creative, sensual and easy going-regal. Once decided, there is no turning back. Takes tenacious to new levels, which means this energy can see a project through to completion.

Taurus says make plans and set them in motion where they can do the most good – in the power center of your mind. Imagine your life into being! With Taurus presiding, the key is to go with what makes you smile, what makes you say “Ah . . . nice.” Those are the thoughts, pathways, ideas, adventures and people to engage with.

And don’t despair if you aren’t seeing the results you want immediately. As Dennis Elwell says, “…configurations formed at an eclipse can remain dormant for many months, to burst into sudden life when other factors provide an opportunity.” The intention you set now, is money in the bank!

Mark where 8 Taurus is in your chart, (ask in the comments if you need help) and note that the eclipse is joined by Mercury (the thoughts we think, setting our life in motion). The ‘Eco-Self’ also awakens in the sign of Taurus. What intentions will you set for your self, and for Mother Earth? Visit Ian Somerhalder Foundation for ideas!

NY   – Tuesday – 2:15 am
LON – Tuesday – 7:15 am
SYD – Tuesday – 4:15 pm

Read your sun/Ascendant signs: (Read more about Taurus over at The Symbol Reader)

AriesARIES: The focus is on personal finances, but deeper than that, your sense of self value. If you want to amp up your bank account and develop your talents and resources to their fullest, turn your attention to self-esteem. It all begins there.

TaurusTAURUS: Taurus Sun or rising isn’t that keen on change, but this eclipse is just what you need to release resistance and let new intentions fly free. The focus is on your ‘shop window,’ and how you relate to others. Ask what you can do for YOU!

GeminiGEMINI: This eclipse brings reclusive tendencies where you go deep into the privacy of your own thoughts to awaken hidden ideas. Superficial-social, for the next few days, will not serve. Meditate, contemplate, renew. Fresh fields ahead!

CancerCANCER: The focus is on your connection to like-minded others, friends and possibly technology and innovation. You benefit from visioning and really feeling your goals and dreams for the future. Don’t spend this one alone. Reach out.

LeoLEO: Your most cherished intentions around your work life, career, mission and profession have the longest legs right now. Forget about other concerns for the next few days and plant those psychic seed in fertile, imaginative soil. It’s happening!

VirgoVIRGO: A creature of habit, and rightly so, you maximize this eclipse by changing up. Explore people, places, ideas and cultures outside your normal everyday experience. You don’t have to ‘go there'; just imagine a wider canvass, and it’s yours.

LibraLIBRA: On the surface, deal with any debt, unresolved joint finances or tax issues. On a deeper level, this is the time to unravel the emotional generator that lies beneath. Set intentions to release any irksome creations or tolerations and they’re toast!

ScorpioSCORPIO: This is linked to your family of eclipses, a time for you to set new intentions around what you want in your relationship world. With this powerhouse configuration driving, you gain by initiating change, clarity, and elevation to the next level.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: Set intentions around harmony in the work place, increased sense of adventure in your daily life and optimal, energetic, fabulous health. The more you let go of any gremlin vibe or grudge point, the freer you’ll feel. Relax and release!

CapricornCAPRICORN: Anything that gives you a chance to shine, to express your individuality and amp up your creative pleasure is perfect for intention setting. It’s about knowing what you love, and finding ways to do more of that, every day!

AquariusAQUARIUS: This is were you get clarity around home, domestic and family desires. What wants changing? Improving? Imagine it now. On a deeper level, get to the core of your inner world, the heart of your emotional stability, and make a wish.

piscesPISCES: If you’re thinking of improving your education, starting a study group, writing, teaching, learning or training, now is the perfect time to give that a go. The more you open up the channels of communication, the more abundance you attract!

Lunar Eclipse à la Rilke


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

‘Boundlessness in Bloom’ by Duh Huynh

The full moon @25 Libra is a total eclipse – the perfect time to let go of ‘tolerations’ and get a move on with your life.

The eclipse means the moon is conjunct the North Lunar Node and opposite the sun/South Node. Symbolically, it’s a time of culmination and release.

Expect some emotional cleansing, the ‘good for the soul’ kind. You might also find something you’ve been waiting for arrives – the news, the green light, the big opportunity, and if not, you understand where, how, when and why it’s time to regroup. Either way, it feel like progress is possible, and it is! The focus might well be on relationship. You could see the light in terms of how to live your connections in a more fulfilling-to-you way Hint: if you want to improve your relationships ‘out there’ in the world, improve your relationship to yourself. It all begins with you.

How can you best align with the energy of the eclipse?

First, release those ‘tolerations’. Here’s how Jeannette Maw describes them:

To tolerate something means to “allow the existence of, to permit or endure or put up with something.” This implies that the something (or someone) is less than ideal and tends to drain a person’s energy. Thus, a toleration is often a hindering influence to the vibration. More . . .

To recognize those toerlations, we need to feel everything; exclude nothing. Aries sun offers courage to do this and the Libra moon give balance and grace. Because the eclipse is along the Via Combusta, the fiery road, you have support for the release old grudges, out-worn ways of being and plans, goals and perceptions you’ve long surpassed. Bitterness, fear and resentment, you can kiss them goodbye too. The proximity to the ‘safe haven’ fixed stars of Spica at 23 Libra 50′ and Arcturus at 24 Libra 14′ will defuse and dissolve whatever you dredge up from the Via Combusta. Roll up your sleeves, and do the inner work. Whatever has kept you from your own growth and happiness is released, with conscious awareness and intention.

If ever there was a Rainer Maria Rilke Eclipse, this is it:

It is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves from case to case, indescribably monotonous and unrenewed: it is shyness before any sort of new, unforeseeable experience with which one does not think oneself able to cope. But only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatic, will live the relation to another as something alive.

Libra is about our personal, one-to-one socially significant relationships. Wherever Libra is in your chart, that’s where you want to share your Self, your life and your unique talents and gifts. Use this opportunity to tune in and see where you can open this door to a shared experiences, and also clean any closets or clutter found blocking the way.

FULL MOON Eclipse @25 LIBRA Apr 15
LA   – Tue – 12:43AM
NY   – Tue – 3:43 AM
LON – Tue – 8:43 AM
SYD – Tue – 5:43 PM

NOTE: The energy of the eclipse can be felt 30 days before, the time of, or 30 days after (give or take 3 days in each case). That means circle your calendar for (March 15), April 15 and May 15. Also, for those of us mature enough to recall, note what was happening April 15th 1995, the last time we had a Lunar Eclipse at 25 Libra. What was the energy like then? How did you align to it? Ideas?

AriesARIES: The eclipse highlights a contrast between career/creative goals and your love life giving you a chance to see things from a different perspective. Take time to consider all sides then make a choice that feels like the most challenging. After all, you are meant to have adventures!

TaurusTAURUS: There is an indulgent feeling in the air, a sweet song that lures you away from practical goals like sensible eating and a good night’s sleep. The eclipse in Libra will enchant you and then suddenly snap you back to ‘reality.’ Fortunately, a path once traveled is easily found again. Learn to walk both.

GeminiGEMINI: The Muse is awakened, called by the full moon eclipse in your house of creative self-expression. This is where you follow your heart’s desire be it a lover, work of art, manuscript or film. You’re officially clocked off! If it doesn’t start with ‘free spirited’, it’s not on the docket. Reconnect with your rapture.

CancerCANCER: The Lunar Eclipse in your home sector brings the urge to retreat, but not alone. You want those close to you gathered around. Easy done. Host a family dinner, have friends over for a film night, dance or ritual, organize a working bee. Take the initiative and bring loved ones together for a purpose.

LeoLEO: After weeks of crazy communications, this full moon is a time to clear up any lingering misunderstandings. Start first with yourself. What wires are crossed? What inner messages have you missed? Once sorted you go on to straighten out any kinks with friends and family. A simple, let’s start again will do.

VirgoVIRGO: Mars is still retrograde in your house of $$$ and talents, and after ruling Mercury Rx for weeks before that, you might feel like your spinning your wheels. Not so! To get your life on track, think of three things you want to do this year, set clear intentions to do them and roll up your sleeves. By mid May, the plan unfolds.

LibraLIBRA: This is your yearly full moon (eclipse), one that has you feeling intense, focused and a little overworked. Set the tempo for the rest of the year now by creating perfect balance between home/family, career/creativity, lovers and others and your own ‘me’ time. Think equal portions, clear intentions, easy done.

ScorpioSCORPIO: This eclipse is tagging 12th house of the unseen real, bringing up content from the unconscious like a dog digs up an old bone. It might help to remember that for the dog, that buried thing is a treasure! The key to sailing through this lunation is to relax, let go and allow. Notice your dreams. Glean the message and move on.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: The key words for the centaur are socialize, tantalize, realize. This is not a go it alone time. As you mix with like-minded others, the eclipse shines on your goals and wishes for the future. Are they current? On track? Still relevant? Take time to sort through, eliminating anything past its use-by-date.

CapricornCAPRICORN: The eclipse lights up your house of public relationship, reputation and career. There could be some limelight, or at least an interview or two. The key is to ‘create no response’, that is, pay no attention to any gossip or whispers. Your authenticity stands. Just acknowledge credit where credit is due.

AquariusAQUARIUS: This is an explorer’s eclipse for all Water-bearers, one that has you looking to distant horizons, speaking of sweeping events and notions and finding new paths to enlightenment. Under the cool rays of the moon you will see things from a fresh perspective. Think awareness, contemplations, assimilation.

piscesPISCES: The eclipse in your regeneration sector has you thinking intense thoughts and prepping to make life changing decisions. There is no rush. Actually, it serves you better to pace yourself this month, launching new plans after Mars goes direct on the 19th of May. Now is for composure and intimate connections. And inner peace.

Post in the comments where this eclipse is lighting up your chart. We’ll compare notes!

Happy New Moon Everyone.

Astro-LOA Flash – Venus into Pisces


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Walking in the Rain by Tomfans

Astro-LOA Flash: Venus into its sign of exaltation, Pisces, and Mercury over the Zero Degree Aries Point this week makes for a pre-eclipse energy shift.

You want to limber up for this one. It’s about letting go of any grudge matches or the desire to settle an old score or ‘make things right.’ Instead, think of automatic clean slates.

The more you grant them, the freer and more fabulous your life will feel. Can you pre-pave that now? It does a world of good!

VENUS INTO PISCES times (for those who’ve been asking!)
LA – Saturday- 1:30 PM
NY– Saturday – 4:30 PM
LON– Saturday – 9:30 PM
SYD – Sunday – 6:30 AM

NOTE: Venus glides into the sign of Pisces this weekend, her sign of exaltation. Here she blends personal love with compassion, and the desire for intimacy with freedom of the spirit. Growth comes through openness and understanding. Again, compassion. Her element now is water, fluid, weightless, yielding. Through the sign of Pisces, we see in the ‘other’ a piece of our own heart.

How does this happen, this forgetting ourselves to ‘be with’ another? For example, why are we, as a species, able to override our most powerful instinct for survival and risk our lives to save a total stranger?

To have compassion for an ‘other’ we have to believe that what is happening to them is happening to us.

Arthur Schopenhauer wrote on this topic (not well received by his peers at the time, btw). He felt that the reason we are willing to give up our lives for another we don’t even know is because in that moment of risk we make no distinction between them and us. We experience the oneness of all life.

Venus in Pisces can help us get in touch with the sense of oneness, the thread that connects us to everything that ever was, is or will be. These next 25 days are excellent for getting in touch with our links to life, the environment, Mother Earth, and every rock, river, tree, forest, creature and being in our world. It’s also a great time to ‘do’ something to contribute. Participate. I’m an IS Foundation girl. What’s your favourite way to nurture, give back to and uplift the planet?

And where is Venus transiting through Pisces is in your chart? Expect major attractions there, connection and abundance . . . even the sweet rush of love. Enjoy!

Always Take the Weather With You, by Crispin Korchen

March 30/31st is the New Moon in Aries!

Until then, retreat and reflect with dark moon. Think – self-nourishment, sanctuary . . . (NOTE: Mars Rx means test drive before you buy)

With the New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, the #1 planet of change, this is the magnum intention setter of the year. You want to be clear about your desires and then shoot for the stars with your healthy ambition, goals and WILL.

Eros/Pluto in Capricorn is woven into this lunar event, bringing deep transformation at the core of your being. If you aren’t living your passion now, you’ll soon find out why, and how to support creative change. Check out where 0 – 20 degrees of Aries is in your natal chart for added insight. (see tutorials here or ask if you need help).

This is the first decanate of Ariesa raw and vigorous decan with the assertive and action packed energy of Aries expressing without much tempering.  The more you can express a potent, healthy assertive quality in the area of your chart where the new moon resides (9 Aries) the better you will feel.  Find 9 degrees of Aries in your chart and you’ll know the house, or area of life, where you want to fuel your fire! *reference for all 12 houses below*

LA  – Sunday – 11:45 AM
NY  – Sunday – 2:45 PM
LON – Sunday – 6:45 PM
SYD – Monday – 5:45 AM

Remember, the New Moon in Aries is a blast of fresh energy and enthusiasm, giving us a kick start for the entire astrological year ahead. It’s a time to honor the core words I am . . . (You fill in the blank. I am what?) Where Aries is in your chart, you take the road only you can travel! Get thee on thy journey!

AriesARIES: New Moon in Aries in your solar first house means power boosted drive, enthusiasm and amped up determination. You are ready to take action, make things happen and blast out into the world in a new, independent, adventurous ways. Aim high; Go large! (Remember: Mars Rx means test drive before you buy).

TaurusTAURUS: Your new equinox cycle begins in the house of dreams, imagination and compassion. Think spiritual and altruistic notions surfacing with powerful intentions. You may feel to help those less fortunate and heal old hurts from within. Giving never felt so good. Big heart!

GeminiGEMINI: There is a group or joint effort that has your full attention right now. Prep for more connections, more socializing and more public recognition. You get quoted, so keep that in mind when speaking to others! The next few months are manifesting heaven!

CancerCANCER: Career action pushes you into the public eye. You feel bold, adventurous and ready to challenge the status quo, especially if it feels stuck and predictable. Make waves now. Stir it up, and prep for big value/financial shifts with Jupiter into Leo in July!

LeoLEO: News from overseas or a foreign source brings the desire to put change into motion. (Remember: Mars Rx means test drive before you buy). Think paradigm expansion and provocative insights! The core feeling at the base of it all is freedom and the experience of new, unforeseen horizons. Go with it! No resistance.

VirgoVIRGO: A grant, loan, inheritance, royalty, tax refund or joint application you’ve been waiting on gets the go ahead, while legal issues around shared finances smooth out. If any co-creation seems to be held up, moving at a snail’s pace, that’s all about to change. Green light!

LibraLIBRA: If a relationship has been idle, snagged or even floundering in the shallows, set an intention for clarity. Think release from struggle, clear sailing and going with the wind. Anything ‘stuck’ or repressed tangles will blast apart. So let them, and do what feels right for you.

ScorpioSCORPIO: This is your health, fitness and body awareness month with opportunities for healing transformation. It might trigger a change of diet or eating habits, new form of exercise or fresh daily work routine. Rethink what isn’t making you happy and say yes to what is

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: The Aries New Moon is a wild, zany, romantic and creative adventure, lifting you out of any ruts or stagnating patterns and bringing fresh, vitality and new horizons. Your watchword is exploration, now more than ever. Get free! Get inspired! Get going! (Remember: Mars Rx means test drive before you buy).

CapricornCAPRICORN: The inner soul world is calling, and it might manifest externally as repairs to the home, moving house, redesigning or perhaps attention needed for the body. It feels like you have to rush, ‘clock ticking’, but there is time. Relax. Deep breaths. Self nourish.

AquariusAQUARIUS: Communications are almost a safety hazard right now as lightning bolt ideas, thoughts and insights zap through every conversation. With so much Aries in your 3rd house, words have bite! Focus on projects, plans and creative release. Write, speak, teach, learn!

piscesPISCES: The New Moon in your values sector has you setting intentions around your approach to $$, talents and self-worth.Time to sort beliefs around what you do ‘for a living’ and those you’re responsible for. Heads up for a rush of inspired action! (Remember: Mars Rx means test drive before you buy).

Have a wonderful NEW MOON Everyone!GoodVibeAstroD52cR06bP01ZL-Hoover6b_mdm

Aries – the ram

Astro-LOA Flash: The sun over the Zero Degree Aries Point heralds the equinox, a festival of magnificence!

Whether you are ‘springing forward’ or ‘falling back’, this is strong juju, energy to move your forward along your path.

Wherever Aries is in your chart, fireworks go off, bells ring and eyes light up! Glimpse a sense of purpose and renaissance of spirit as your desires, vitality and drive seek to express in the world.

Yes yes, Mars, the ruler of Aries, is retrograde, but you will feel this like an inner victory dance no matter what!

Appreciate NOW everything that is working out in your life as well as your desires for the future.

As the first degree of Aries, this point suggest how our “will to be”, or sense of I AM, moves out from the subjective and into manifest reality. Ask:
What am I creating today?

Where Aries is in the chart is where our inner warrior is ready, willing and able to stake our claim, stand up for our rights, boast of our accomplishments and assert, initiate, proclaim and adventure. He is also ready to PLAY, compete and revel in the creative energy of life. Do you let him?

The designers of the zodiac denoted (ARIES) by the symbol of the ram, noted for the ‘directional force’ of its headlong charge. Yet curiously in some old zodiacs the ram is shown not charging, but with its head turned to look back on itself, and the direction from whence it has come.

This gesture seems to tell us something important about the relationship of consciousness and self-awareness to the forward movement of the universe, namely that awareness is oriented in the reverse direction to the thrust. Mysteriously, consciousness and will face different ways. – Dennis Elwell 1987

Dennis Elwell goes on to discuss what boils down to our orientation in time and space. The point being, awareness doesn’t necessarily travel from the past into the present into the future. Possibly, it is quite the opposite. Read more here . . .

Are you in touch with your Mars? Is he expressing by signs, house and planet in authentic ways? Are you the boss in your Aries house? Calling the shots and self-directing, especially in that area of life? Check where your 0 Degree Aries Point is in your chart before you answer, then welcome the Equinox. Connect to this powerful and pro-active, playful, assertive side of your life.

Astro-LOA Flash: Full Moon in Virgo is perfect for bringing more ritual into the daily routine, amping up ‘heart’ and ‘creation’. It’s a time to appreciate what is working and feel compassion and reverence for all life, beginning with your own.

Performing ritual is in our blood. It’s archetypal, meaning it’s a connecting principle found in all cultures, in all places and all times. Recent studies have shown even simple rituals can be extremely effective in promoting a greater sense of well being. What rituals are you practicing? Are they supportive or . . .?

Virgo stand(s) for instrumentation, implementation and technical competence. Dennis Elwell. It is about skill development, and the rituals in life that are constantly creating and re-creating our experience of reality.

AriesARIES/6th house: The Full Moon in your house of health is the perfect time to let go of unsupported habits in the realm of diet, exercise and daily ritual. Think of your body as your best friend. What do you feed her? How do you keep her fit and active? When do you let her rest? Play? Explore? Connection?

TaurusTAURUS/ 5th house: The creative and playful sphere of the heart is awakened at this Full Moon. Ask what rituals do you have in place around your artistic expression? Is it haphazard, random or so strict there’s no room to breathe? Set into motion some healthy ways to connect to your inner child. Make them fun!

GeminiGEMINI/ 4th house: The Full Moon shines on your home, family and emotional security sector. What are you doing to feather your nest, metaphorically and literally? Ask how ritual can improve this area of life. Regular family dinners? Time with rels that could use your expertise? Renewed Feng Shui in the home? Go big!

CancerCANCER/ 3rd house: This is the perfect time to create new habits around self-talk, verbal communication and written or spoken expression, teaching and leaning. Notice how you connection socially around familiar haunts then start putting more conscious awareness on your thoughts. Remember, they do become things!

LeoLEO/ 2nd house: Full Moon amps up your house of money, a representation of your inner core values and self-esteem. This is excellent for boosting feelings of self-worth and setting in place new habits of care, respect and generosity. Let go the critical and embrace the abundance of non-judgment. So freeing!

VirgoVIRGO/first house: This is your ‘birthday’ Full Moon and ideal for fueling any new project that has your ‘heart’s desire’ in it. Most likely opportunities are rolling in. You get to pick your favorite and lavish it with positive energy. The trick is to not become totally obsessed. Start a habit of balance in everything you do.

LibraLIBRA/ 12th house: The Full Moon in Virgo is your ‘Dream Moon’ as it activates your unconscious mind. Up comes all the buried treasures in the form of inspiration, epiphanies, synchronicities and head over heels love interests. Treat this like a preview of coming attractions. Nurture, respect, revel and enjoy!

ScorpioSCORPIO/ 11th house: The Full Moon in the house of friends is a wonderful opportunity to bring healthy habits of connection into being. Your powers of discernment and leadership are heightened, helping you know intuitively which birds of a feather you want to flock with. Remember, to have a friend, be a friend. Spend some time there!

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS/ 10th house: Attention to detail and a feeling of new awareness lights up your career sector. This is where you put strong healthy habits into place. If you’ve been overworking, pull back. If it’s been hard to focus, you practice new skills. As support and opportunities arrive, create the perfect combination of work and play.

CapricornCAPRICORN/ 9th house: This is your ‘Exploration Moon’ as a thirst for the unknown activates every cell in your body. What you thought was a closed door, a limitation or block, opens wide and you walk on through. The habit of open-mindedness can be developed now with very little effort. Easy breezy enlightenment time!

AquariusAQUARIUS/ 8th house: The Virgo Full Moon is a chalice of overflowing opportunity where you create new habits around shared resources. This means anything from finances, borrowed or loaned, creative projects and even intimate, erotic expression can take on new meaning in your life. Think Renaissance!

piscesPISCES/ 7th house: This is your ‘Relationship Moon’ where you can examine your personal one-to-ones and put into place more supportive, loving and caring habits. Old unconscious behaviors dissolve, replaced by mutual respect and reverence for life with another. Boundaries improve creating more room for unconditional love.

It takes 21 days to start a new habit. Let’s set fabulous intentions now!

Have a wonderful Full Moon everyone! xKim
