win_20170223_203151

Hello everyone .. I´ve finally gotten the celestial signal to proceed. Time to roll up my sleeves and get down to business. Sessions are now open.

I´m holding an extra long round to accommodate those on the waiting list, and to give some chance for advance planning.

Plus, with the upcoming Pisces Eclipse (February 26), Venus Retrograde (March 4) and the final Eris-Uranus conjunction (March 17) – this is a good time to seek guidance for the road ahead.

Many things, people, alignments, structures, ideals, relationships, jobs … you name it – everything´s in a state of intense evolution. This relates to the long-standing Grand Cardinal Cross with Vesta, Atlantis, Uranus, Eris, Jupiter, Aphrodite, Pluto – and so on. We of course, have more opportunities for transformation later in 2017 – but one day at a time, eh?

PISCES ECLIPSE PREP: ENERGY RISING (AND DISCERNMENT NEEDED)

Right. There´s a lot of ancient energy surfacing at this time. (Not all of it is fun). Astrologically speaking this is due to the energetic buildup to the Pisces Solar Eclipse (26/2) and the upcoming conjunction of the Sun with the South Node in Pisces in 2 days´time.

So – communications from other realms, karmic shit, metaphysical initiations, suffering, confinement, transcendental expansion, surrender, spiritual cleansing – it´s a mixed bunch of stuff.

If there´s something strange …. in the neighbourhood ….

Read this article and follow some of the general suggestions for psychic protection.

´Psychic Deflection and dealing with Unfriendly Energy´ – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1OQ

But practice basic self care as well – that goes a long, long way.

Get enough water, sleep, healthy food

Spend time in nature, with decent friends / family if possible

Work with your support systems

Journal what comes up (if that works for you)

Ward your spaces with healing and protective energy – ESPECIALLY important for practitioners / faciliators / space holders

Avoid the influence of substances that open you up too wide too quickly (drugs, alcohol, etc. – plant medicine is powerful but know what you are doing).

If having thoughts of self-harm, etc. make sure you find a safe space to check into and just be for a while.

Focus on your own energy, before you work with another. There´s going to be a lot of projection thrown about. Avoid taking on another´s baggage or becoming a punching bag … (it is your choice to do so if you wish, though) – The Charoite gemstone would be of use with this.

Remember to stay in your body the etheric spaces are a little .. uh… overcrowded at this time. Vetiver and Patcholi are great oils to help you with that – and as always – check for dosage, quality and contraindications – and use with a high quality carrier oil!

Generally speaking:

Stay safe, stay sane, stay grounded. Be aware of heightened disassociative or escapist tendencies at this time.

And – as my dear sisters remind me –

Make room for Joy right now. Make it a conscious, embodied act. It´s a powerful statement to make.

PSYCHIC DEFLECTION & DEALING WITH UNFRIENDLY ENERGY

14718785_918777038226292_3574162770423261269_n
Irrespective of what you do and the level of integrity you do things with – you are bound to piss someone off – and sometimes they end up energetically bugging you about it. Such is the nature of this Earth-playground.
There are things like gemstones, herbs, oils, sounds / vibrations, mantras and such that can create a protective space around you. But sometimes that is not enough. (See recommendations at end of article)
When someone is intentionally sending you some negative energy – depending on your level of experience in these matters – the first port of call is to look at your aura.
Go through the different layers of your (multiple) subtle bodies till you find a hook, gateway, backdoor (use what metaphor works for you). Send it the energy of awareness (light) and love so that it can resolve itself and release. But aiming positive vibrations at it may not be enough. You have to look at and delve into, or at the very least emotionally experience the nature of the connection and the causes of its creation / perpetuation. Very rarely do you have to bring in the big guns, so to speak , i.e. a more aggressive approach (if at all).
What tends to happen is that with awareness, witnessing, honoring and recognizing the interaction (whatever it is), the psycho-emotional charge on the hook or connection begins to dissipate. You can then begin the work of healing and re-sealing that part of yourself.
Most of the time, this occurs within the ambit of what we generally accept as the 7 chakra field, relating to the physical organs and their corresponding energetic fields. And sometimes it goes a lot deeper, or, a lot farther than that. You will need a facilitator at that point if you are not familiar with the levels of perception required. And not all facilitators can (or need to) see those parts of the energy body.
In cases of higher-dimensional interference, a facilitator who does not work at that level of consciousness will not be able to tell the difference between the different types of energies that come in. In fact, the same applies to lower dimensional interference.
There is a great fallacy in the belief that things of a ´higher dimension´ are necessarily positive, or that things of a ´lower dimension´are negative. In the quest to ´ascend to 5D´ this is something that needs to be borne in mind.
Spiritual work tends to get a lot more complex than that. Which is why ignorance probably is bliss (of a kind 😉 )
Ciao ciao
PS: Some general tools for protection (in the sense of keeping stuff out – you can also protect yourself by strengthening yourself within):
Gemstones: Selenite, Black Obsidian, Labradorite, Petalite
Essential Oils: Frankincense, Tea Tree, Clove (remember to check for dosage, purity and contraindications)
Herbs :Sage, Palo Santo, Neem, Nettle
Protective Practices: Smudging the home with herbs/incense, Salt soaks / baths with protective herbs or oils, Using a singing bowl to clear stagnant energy
Mantras:
Prathyangira Devi (Lion Goddess)
Invocation of Heavenly Host (Hebrew Tradition)
Om Mani Padme Hum (Kwan Yin / Avalokiteśvara)

AstroAlert: Grand Cardinal Cross reactivated by Libra Moon! (15/2/17)

15-2-2017

 

Oki koki. The Moon (25 Libra) is activating the Grand Cardinal Cross in the sky! This alignment involves Jupiter Rx (23 Libra), Vesta (21 Cancer), Uranus (21 Aries) and Pluto (18 Capricorn). And .. a bunch of asteroids and other bodies … You would have probably felt this a lot stronger on the night of the 14th / wee hours of the 15th (depending on where you are in the world). But there´s still a ripple effect going around.

Watch your emotions and how they lead you in matters of relationships / partnerships, family, career and self-identity. I know … that´s a lot of stuff. But growth comes when you get real with your emotions. Sit with them, which … can be very, very difficult when you´ve got a bunch of triggers pointed your way.

It´s likely to be reminiscent of the … intensity we felt during a similar (long-standing) Grand Cardinal Cross in 2014.

Give yourselves room to release. You´re going to be seeing a lot more of this particular dynamic up to April at the very least. Learn from what happens now so you can set up a longer term plan to manage these challenges and potentially transform obstacles into greater opportunities for growth.

The North Node (3 Virgo) is trined Ceres (3 Taurus) and Juno (3 Capricorn). Use this energy to get deeper with the process of embodiment, and to connect with the nurturing, juicy, fleshy, maternal energy of the Planet – and how it expresses itself through one´s body. This is an excellent time to also break new ground in finding ways to self-nurture and re-evaluating your understanding of what constitutes ´success´ and ´authority´.

Gemstone recommendations: Lepidolite, Aqua Aura Quartz
Essential oil reccomendations. Neroli, Vetiver, Geranium (check for purity, dosage and contraindications before use)

Hang in there, peeps! This is more of a quick heads-up , will probably do a solo post on the alignment at a later date.

POST-BLACK MOON LILITH IN SCORPIO (May 2016- Feb 2017): RECAP

brokenhand

– remember to take the lessons you learnt in the past 9 months with you as you head into a new exploration of the Shadow Feminine

– you would have seen what is true for you (what isn´t), energetic alchemy or other types of mergers that work in your favour (or not)

– you would have realized what is worth investing in, and what isn´t.

– you would have had to look at different parts of your subconscious mind, going deep into karmic or ancestral work that asks you to recognize the parts of the shadow you identify with at that level (and some of that stuff may not even be ´yours´ )

And each of you would have done this with different approaches, modalities and levels of awareness. Or you may have been required to do so as a result of triggering from another, usually the intimate partner.

So, now you´ve had your experience in the Shadow with Her – it´s time to bring it into the Light. And transform those experiences into Knowledge. The kind of Knowledge that creates a Path forwards for you and for others.

One that allows the feminine to be seen, heard, respected – and Loved – in her more uncomfortable, often vilified aspects.

(I think of this as a badass Cosmic Valentine´s Day present …)

At the end of the day, charging into the Shadow to ´clean´ it does´t work. Awareness, compassion, integration, forgiveness, release – as appropriate – does.

Black Moon Lilith will only re-enter Scorpio in March 2025! It´ll be a while before she visits this particular dynamic again. So take these lessons with you – they´ll go a long way.

I´ll talk more about Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius if/when called – as she unfolds – but for now, remember to take the gifts and lessons that Scorpio´s energy has given before you head on off into a new exploration.

Let the dust settle for a few days as you sit and integrate. We´ve shed a lot in this time .. and the lessons haven´t been easy. Take the time to grieve, feel and mourn what has had to go …. and when the time is right – celebrate those changes!

Give yourself a little breathing space before you start that bold, bright next chapter.

And remember – this is Eclipse season … the next Solar Eclipse is in Pisces (26/2) – 12 days from now. Asteroid Lilith (not the Black Moon) will be within 7 degrees of it. More to uncover.

Black Moon Lilith prepares to shift into Sagittarius! 29 hours to go!

bustwithstars

Within the next 29 hours, Black Moon Lilith / Mean Apogee will shift into Sagittarius. Things are about to move. The actual shift takes place on 14.2.2017 (Valentine´s Day for the UK, Asia and the 13th for the Americas) at 00:29, GMT/UTC time.

Watch for stirrings from the deeper, darker more hidden aspects of your psyche in this period. This may also manifest in intense emotional, psychological, sexual, intimate dynamics with those closest to us.

There may be a lot of projection and games of control coming your way / involving those around you. Or – alternatively – a deeper breakthrough in your shadow-work, allowing you to move into an even more profound relationship with magick, alchemy, the occult and the understanding of what power truly is – and where it comes from.

Those of you who work with the Archetype of the Dark Goddess, keep your hearts open and your discernment on the go.

The Dark isn´t Evil, The Shadow isn´t something to Fear. The Feminine need not be vilified and excluded from power any longer.

It´s time to emerge from of the Cave, and head for the Mountaintop . . .

. . . That being said – Not all Darkness is Sacred 😀 May be time for some of you to revisit this piece : http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1mo

Suggested Gemstones: Labradorite, Merlinite
Suggested Oils: Juniper Berry, Tuberose Absolute (check for purity and contraindications)

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN LEO, GRAND SEXTILE / STAR OF DAVID WITH ERIS, URANUS, SATURN, JUPITER, CHAOS AND ATROPOS: YIKES! (10-11 February 2017)

grand-sextile-11-2-2017

The Lunar Eclipse takes place at 22 Leo where the Moon will be as it opposes the Sun at 22 Aquarius at 00:32, GMT / UTC time on 11-2-2017. That´s on 10-2-2017 for those in the Americas.

Typically, the Leo-Aquarius opposition teaches us about our personal emotions with people or projects that spark our passion, creativity, enthusiasm and joy – and – how this needs to be balanced with the larger needs of the collective and the evolutionary / awakening process that we are all a part of. This holds true.

However, this is not an ordinary Eclipse. It is woven as part of a Grand Sextile / Star of David alignment. And that just … accelerates and intensifies the sheer level of energy and activations that are possible. It creates a powerful engine for manifestation, but one with highly unpredictable outcomes.

The other players forming the Grand Sextile are: Uranus/Eris, Jupiter, Saturn and anything between 16-26 Gemini. Two of the larger asteroidal players there right now are Chaos (meaning the gaping void, unknown potential) at 20 Gemini and Atropos (the Eldest of the Three Fates, the one who cuts the thread) at 23 Gemini.

Yikes … is all I can say ….

Yikes.

The current eclipse brings forth energies that were at play on 31st January 1999, some 18 years ago as its predecessor in the Saros Lunar Eclipse Series. Look back to what was going on then in your life to see what is being carried forwards now. You may also see some seeds that were set during the previous Leo New Moon on August 2nd, 2016.

I´m going to start with the general interpretation of the Leo Lunar Eclipse, suggestions for coping – and then move onto a far deeper, richer analysis of the bodies at play 😉

And there´s a lot of them – involving quite a few bodies of the Rising – and – Distorted Feminine. (Patriarchy has a lot to answer for … and we´ve got a lot of work ahead of us…)

Look at what seeks to awaken you to deeper levels of creativity, play, sensuality and authenticity. Triggers or catalysts may come from friends, people on social media, those in altruistic networks / charitable organizations, visionaries / eccentrics, technologists, channeled messages from other forms of consciousness – and so on.

You might feel afraid or hesitant to get into that deep place of sacred play: The Heart of the Inner Child. If pain is coming up for you at this time, try working with tuberose essential oil and/or the rhodocrosite gemstone – and always check for contraindications.

Let whatever comes up at this time guide you and inspire your creative engines to work once more! Some of you may feel a powerful boost to sacral chakra and/or kundalini energy at this time.

This is not something to be forced, but rather something allowed to come into being if it is the right time for you. The best you can do is to stay open and stay grounded. Let the message, vibration or energy that comes pass through you and use energetic protection to stay safe.

For some, the eclipse will bring together new friends, co-creative collaborators, lovers, networks, children, community, astral connections and so on. And for others, such connections may be ´eclipsed´ out. That part is the wild card element. Something is bound to be lit up during this Eclipse, and its fate depends on the events that have led up to this moment in time. And the choices you make with the energy that is unleashed.

For those who feel spacey, ungrounded, intimidated or scattered, I would highly recommend listening to and meditating with The Prathyangira Devi Mantra. She is the Lion Goddess of India whose teachings were kept hidden from all but the most adept initiates. Her energy has only recently been made available to all. You see more and more temples to Her appearing in India, Malaysia and other countries in which Hinduism is present.

Whatever way you want to look at it, the vibration of this mantra is exceptionally clean and powerful. I have seen it work on myself and many others I have recommended it to. Listen to it with an open mind and heart and watch the magic happen – if you wish.

It is especially powerful at this time as the Eclipse is in Leo, and Prathyangira Devi is of course a Lioness!

Now, the Lunar Eclipse – in itself – is not the only alignment that is worth mentioning. It´s connected up to Jupiter, Eris, Saturn, Uranus – and so on (and they´re pretty heavy hitters to begin with).

In the rest of this article, I would like to delve more so into the astrological significance of these other alignments.

The Leo Moon itself conjuncts Hera, the heavily projected upon role of the Feminine. In Greek Mythology, despite being the wife of Zeus, Hera was projected on as the scheming, controlling mother who would use her own children as pawns to get even with her philandering husband.

Of course She was far more than that, but the way in which she sought to seek justice for herself became a point of critique.

During this Eclipse, with Hera conjunct the Moon we are likely to see situations involving creative partnerships, children, romances, sacral and heart chakra ties / energies that evoke the archetype of the slandered Feminine – now distorted in the heat of her responses.

Stay away from games of projection in which one person is cast into this role, whilst the other ´apparently´ gets away with things scot-free

Now Hera and The Moon oppose The Sun at 22 Aquarius. You may see the rhetoric of idealism, or idealistic principles used as the rope on which a tug-of-war is played out.

Know that you don’t have to play that game and that no ideal is absolute.

A man may, for instance, seek to shame his wife into submission by saying: A woman´s place is in the kitchen. And that is an ideal that she does not need to buy into (unless she wants to). She may counter that saying that she has the right to be who she truly desires to be, which may (or may not be) more than a domestic servant. But know that these challenges disrupt the flow of energy and stability in relationships that are built on outdated, or skewed gender binaries. . .

If you feel like you´re being pushed into a situation where control (or being controlled, especially in mother-child / partnership drama) is the only option, walk away. Or refuse to play the game.

Bear in mind that some element of this is likely to be present in your personal lives (more so if the Eclipse activates key positions in your chart), but … it´s probably a lot more visible when you take a step backwards and look at the lifeblood of the collective.

The Sun conjuncts Hidalgo (20 Aquarius), Damocles (23 Aquarius) and Narcissus (25 Aquarius) whilst opposing the Moon and Hera.

Whilst Hidalgo and Damocles urge us to stand up for our ideals and take responsibility even at personal risk, Narcissus reminds us to take a look in the mirror. Are we truly living up to the words we utter? Do we seek to project ourselves through the lens of the holier-than-thou prophet or martyr? Do we truly believe in the ideals we spout or are they simply a convenient tool to keep other dynamics (and other people) as they are?

And that is where things get a little muddier. Those who work with gemstones, try meditating with Icelandic spar / optical calcite on the third eye. Use black pepper or clary sage essential oil, diluted (check for contraindications, as with all oils) – to get a sense of clarity.

What are your deeper intentions behind the ideals you currently identify with?

There may be deeper hooks (especially in the heart / sacral chakra, or from early childhood) that prevent us from seeing the truth – or – falsity of the ideals that we claim to uphold.

It´s very easy to escape into the mental realms and to hold on to a particular view of the world when one is disconnected from other parts of the somatic, energetic, psychological, sensual body (what Leo ultimately pushes us towards). When unclear, let your inner Child guide you to what is truly … True for you at this time and let Him/Her show you the bridges that need to be built within and without … which brings us to Libra.

(And bear in mind – we all have the Freedom of Choice … even the worst dictators on the planet justified acts of atrocity with their breed of idealism – my suggestions are to help you orient you to your Truth, whatever that may be)

The Moon sextiles Jupiter Retrograde-Aphrodite-Haumea at 23-24 Libra. Quite literally, the revelations from this Eclipse will help you set the seed for longer term changes in partnerships and the way you set boundaries with others (starting from the partnership within).

It is very important to honor the creative process and your personal needs and more abstract ideals – as you seek to dance with another (or simply, other layers of your consciousness).

Remember that these Libran energies trine the Sun & Co. – so concerns of building bridges, justice, fairness and ideals that seek to bring each other on board would be fairly high right now. Whatever comes up – consider the impact of your actions on yourself, your significant partnerships, and, if possible, the wider community before taking them.

Those with placements near 22-24 Pisces will experience a profound Yod – one that can swiftly take them to the crossroads of Choice . And perhaps . Change, Healing and Transcendence. Or … Greater Suffering as you re-live a particular Karmic pattern …

Let Justice be your guiding principle and give yourself permission to open into new levels of consciousness, so that you may take actions that act in alignment with all-that-is. Especially if you´re the one getting projected on as Hera

The Moon trines Echeclus (20 Aries), Uranus (21 Aries), Eris (22 Aries). Yes . That´s right . ERIS herself. You´re going to be very heavily triggered / activated / initiated by the energies of Awakening and the Rising Feminine at this time. And it is important to ride that wave in a vibration that allows for greater Healing … and hopefully as little Destruction as possible. Whilst there will be some element of Chaos unleashed as the world restructures itself with the Eris-Uranus conjunctions …. some of that can be mitigated – that is, at least, the hope.

Echeclus warns us of stepping into gooey karmic dynamics that make us feel… stuck, whilst Uranus and Eris step in with the flaming lightning bolt of conscious saying : NO MORE! It´s a bit of a mix-up, or celestial gumbo going on …. Different impulses pulling you to different paths .. and outcomes.

Think of this as a powerful catalyst and remember to balance it with Libra´s concerns with Justice. That being said, Eris broke down a system that excluded her – so it´s certainly going to be an intense energy to navigate.

Make sure that you participate in dynamics that honor your awakening energy – and of all those involved. Feel free to walk away, or to open opportunities for change and healing – if things are not in alignment. Given that this is a Lunar Eclipse … it´s more likely that things find a more resolute end, than continuation. But that depends on a bunch of other factors.

If you have placements near 20-22 Virgo, you´re going to experience a powerful yod with the Sun in Aquarius sextiling Eris/Uranus and apexing in a … monumental Yod / Finger of Fate. Time to look closely at the path of Service and Healing you have chosen.

(Hm … I have placements at both yod points … Oh Universe …)

The Sun (22 Aquarius) sextiles Saturn 25 (Sagittarius) which trines the Moon (22 Leo). Long story short … whatever comes through at this time is likely to have a long-term impact on your understanding of the Path or Road that you take. Nothing is truly set in stone, but once a process is begun, it is harder to move to something else (barring major planetary activations contributing to the vibe- as they are now).

This … really feels like a major point, or threshold to me. With Askalaphus (the Secret Revealer, 20 Sagittarius) and Hygeia conjunct Saturn (25 Sagittarius) – we´re likely to see … truths revealed about what we seek to heal or make whole by the paths we choose. And some of these truths might not be pretty.

If you have placements between 22-25 Cancer (which is where Vesta, Atlantis and Thereus are right now …) the Sun-Saturn sextile forms another Yod. Let´s just say that control dynamics from the family, maternal ancestry and/or past-life karma are also going to be asking you to delve deeply into your emotions … your past/s .. and the skeletons at the bottom of the karmic well.

There are other alignments going on, but I´m going to bring it to a close here. Both the Sun and Moon square Hekate (22 Taurus), Sedna (25 Taurus) and Ceto (20 Scorpio). It is wise to use this energy to go into the depths of the Shadow, where there is great treasure, but often, great pain. Use this energy to move even further to the core of yourself to find your sense of authenticity and strength and honor the Feminine Teachers and Familiars (often Serpents) who arise to guide you on your way.

With Chaos and Atropos completing the Grand Sextile (Star of David) all of this is woven into, you can expect many threads and hooks to be cut away in the mind / early perceptions of self, opening the gateway for new narratives, words, and ideas of who you see the world, and how it sees you. I´ve been seeing the imagery of pulling out swords from the energy body quite a bit and it fits in with the message from the skies.

That´s about it for this review of the Eclipse. I hope you find it useful. Remember at the end of the day, no matter what you´ve done before, what contracts have existed between you and others – you always have the power of Free Will.

Use it wisely and choose a path for yourselves that truly honor where it is you want to go and the life that you ASPIRE to inhabit. At the very least, give yourself room to simply sit with yourself and all that is unfolding for you at this time.

Give it a week for the energy of this Eclipse to wind down. It´s a pretty intense one, so well done for … being!

Blessings and Joy!
