Sagittarius lunar eclipse and Full Moon, June 15 2011

Midsummer Full Moon

The energy for tomorrow’s lunar eclipse is starting to build, and it’s likely to have a profound effect on many of us. The eclipse will peak at the moment of the Full Moon at 4:14 pm Eastern.

This is a Full Moon in Sagittarius, the sign that represents our search for meaning. Sagittarius describes the Truth that we create for ourselves, and the urge for expansion and adventure that drives us in search for that Truth. The Gemini Sun opposes the Sagittarius Moon, urging us to integrate the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity of knowledge and learning. In Gemini we learn with an open mind; in Sagittarius we seek understanding and discrimination between that which is true and that which is not true. Gemini opens us to new experiences but lacks discrimination; Sagittarius creates more rigid ideology but learns discernment. Neither is better than the other, but the two require balance.

A conjunction of Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, to the Gemini Sun will weigh the balance heavily in Gemini’s favor, activating the mind to be curious and wide awake, processing our life’s experiences through the realm of thoughts and ideas.  This can take us away from the emotional heart where wisdom can settle and become integrated into our life, and a conjunction of Chiron to Neptune in the eclipse chart suggests that there is still soul work to be done.

This eclipse is a powerful one as the Sun and Moon are only one degree from a conjunction to the nodes of the Moon.  The lunar nodes are not planetary bodies but are points in the sky where the Moon crosses the apparent path of the Sun from our earthly perspective.  The nodes are connected with our evolutionary progress […]

Sunday inspiration for the Scorpio Moon today

Sunday inspiration for Scorpio Moon
“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.”

Carl Jung

“Tell me something good.”

It’s human nature to seek pleasure and avoid pain.  Nobody wants to feel bad, or go through difficult situations.  I have been an astrologer for more than half of my life now, so it’s hard for me to remember what it was like before I new about planetary cycles that were likely to bring challenges that required adjustment and change, but I imagine that it is pretty confusing.  Life is going great, and then all of a sudden here comes a curve ball and suddenly I’m feeling depressed for apparently no reason.

Some of you have heard me say that I have the hardest chart I’ve ever seen, and I like to think that’s so that I can bring some understanding to the table when consulting with clients.  When I talk about healing the core wound, or dealing with depression, it’s not just a concept – I’ve been there.  I know what it’s like to consider suicide.  I know what it’s like to feel that life will never get any better.  But I also know what it’s like to have moved through these horribly difficult times and come out the other side with great joy and happiness.

Sometimes in a consultation the client will say “I’ve just had a terrible time but now I want to move on.  Tell me something good.”  And it would be easy to help her to forget about where she has just been and talk only about the Jupiter transits that are coming, or the fact that her Moon has just progressed into Sagittarius which will make it easier for her to avoid the pain that she’s feeling.  But my experience tells me that before we can REALLY move on, we […]

Chiron turns retrograde today, June 8 – November 10,2011

Chiron retrograde 2011A retrograde lesson

We are most familiar with Mercury turning retrograde and the snafus that ensue, but all of the planets turn retrograde at one point or another.  When the planets in the sky are observed from Earth, they sometimes appear to move backwards because not all of the planets are moving at the same speed.  If you are driving in a car and pass another car that is moving more slowly, it may seem as though that car is moving backwards.

Using the same car analogy, as  planet prepares to turn retrograde it’s like a car making a U-turn.  It has to slow down in order to reverse direction, and then it is almost stationary until it reverses and then picks up speed again.  During that time the planetary influence is stronger than any other time as if a laser beam is focusing the energy that we associate with that planet into our lives.

It’s a mystery how this planetary influence works.  Is it a purely symbolic event that stimulates something that occurs only in our own psycho-emotional system?  Does the actual planetary body in the sky create a field of resonance to which our own psyche responds?  Does it actually send a beam of influence that instigates certain behaviors?  In any case, a retrograde planet urges us to retrace our steps, and the influence of that planet is emphasized in a more personal way.

Chiron

Chiron is best known as the “Wounded Healer,” but I’ve been calling it the “Soul Healer” instead.  In the early days of working with Chiron we used to say that Chironic wounds were the ones that cannot be healed, but I’ve discovered over the years that the wounds of the soul CAN […]
