NEW MOON in LEO

July 23rd, 2017

As always, New Moons are a great time for fresh starts.  This one has got an added punch, fueled by energetic Mars and colored by the willful pride of Leo. It should be easy as pie to muster the courage necessary to step into another phase – one your heart considers more suitable. Hopefully, you’ve tuned into what your heart has been telling you all along – Mars is not one wait patiently. 

In fact, this ‘get to it’ attitude and steadily increasing drive for independence will likely take over for the next six weeks while Mars cruises through Leo, far surpassing the initial kick start of this new lunar cycle. In other words,  your heart of hearts will be in the power seat for a while. It would be useful to keep in mind that arguing with the driver won’t get you anywhere fast. Needless to say, Mars can be reactive, especially when it doesn’t get what it wants. To be fair, this strong-willed independent vibe can bring an extra dose of light and laughter—it all depends on how you handle rushes of blood to the head.

In addition to this rather spirited New Moon, an urge to shake free from real or imagined restraints in search of another playground arrives as Venus sits in opposition to Saturn on the 24th.  With these two bound in struggle, there is liable to be a break up, if, again, in your heart, you know ‘this’ just isn’t suitable. On the other hand, this influence could encourage a brief pause in thinking -a chance to channel all this extra energy into turning a new leaf – make a serious attempt at looking at ‘this’ differently. Whatever the case, Einstein’s words explain it best: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results”.

Neptune Retrograde, June 16th, 2017

 Wonky Week Ahead….

Neptune Retrograde June 16th, 2017

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone
But it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me

Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

No one I think is in my tree
I mean it must be high or low
That is you know you can’t tune it
But it’s all right
That is I think it’s not too bad…

— John Lennon & Paul McCartney,  

Last week’s Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius may have had to improvise, throwing up make-shift walls, shedding light on defensive mechanisms that we didn’t know existed, nor quite convinced we could maintain, never-mind comfortably stand behind if it comes right down to it. This week, (as we get right down to it) a mesmerizing Neptunian fog rolls in testing the mettle of our minds.

Neptune slows on the 16th, hovering over 14 degrees Pisces where it will remain until mid July. If you personally have any planets near on that degree in Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces you might find the next month more exhausting than most. If not, Neptune will still have an influence on you one way or another for the next few weeks. Why is that important? For one, Neptune, as dreamy as it can be, tends to skew perceptions. It’s great if you are an artist and/or are in an established trusting relationship, in the short term. Sensitivities are heightened as personal boundaries dissolve, the enchanting sights and sounds of romance floats on every breeze. Yet, the blissful oohs and aahs are likely based on a fleeting imagination – images of the ideal that can take over regular mental functioning.  

At the beginning of this week, on the 13th, Neptune vies with Mercury – the planet attributed to mental functioning. So how do we get around that? How do we clear the fog, since so many of us need our minds to be sharp while dealing with the daily grind, or truly want to be clear-headed as we struggle to decide whether to risk exposing our vulnerable side?- especially if we aren’t convinced they are the one.  Well, you can’t really get around it – unless, writing poetry, love letters, or trying your hand at calligraphy is on your list of things to do 😉 and remains (at least temporarily) a private affair.  Other options for navigating this cosmic weather? It’s a perfect time contemplate your dream job contract instead of signing one. A good time to profess your undying love too, but better to  delay the trip to the Elvis Chapel, curbing the urge to make it official.  In other words, indulging in dreamscapes won’t hurt as long as you keep one foot on the ground. Otherwise, you’ll float up and up like a balloon only to have it burst far too far from the ground – realizing you can’t hover above earthbound realities forever. Which brings me to the next Neptune tell.

That lost in bliss feeling might not arrive at all. It’s possible that a veil of hopelessness weighs on your shoulders from the get-go, feeling lost (sans the blissful part) with no idea where the damn path went that was under your feet a minute ago. Whether that is the case, or you’re flitting around in euphoric wonder my suggestion is the same – keep it simple.   Go slow until the fog passes. When it comes to relationships in particular, remove the pedestal – no one is perfect. N-O- B-O-D-Y. Applying that notion in earnest, allows for greater love and compassion to flow naturally, unhindered, and that can, arguably, lead you to the real thing here on earth.

As a final note, reality-bitten Saturn in Sagittarius can come in handy around the 15th carrying us through to the end of the week. Stark reminders that reality really does bite (sometimes) might be exactly what is needed to neutralize the dangers of wishful thinking. Conversely, if you’re feeling wish-less from wonky Neptunian vibes, Saturn can also help direct your focus.  There is a true to life version of something or someone worth working towards, a ‘real-ideal’, so to speak. The smoke and mirrors version, brought to you courtesy of Neptune, may seem more vibrant, yet, it isn’t likely to bring satisfaction for the long term. 

...Always know sometimes it’s me
But you know I know when it’s a dream
I think I know I mean a “Yes”
But it’s all wrong
That is I think I disagree
