New Moon in Virgo, September 19, 2017

Libra Seeking Balance

It’s time to celebrate all things Virgo on this New Moon at 27° 27′ Virgo, 19 September 2017 10:30 PM PDT. Virgo is one of the signs most often overlooked and underappreciated. The truth is we need all our great Virgo folk who show up and do their usual excellent job with little fanfare. These are often the people who keep the essentials running day to day, the sort of thing most of us take for granted. There are five planets in Virgo on this lunation and a total of six planets in earth. Plus there is a total of seven planets in mutable signs which adds up to mutable earth (Virgo) dominating this chart.

The Virgo Sun and Moon are under pressure from an inconjunct to unpredictable Uranus in Aries and a stifling square to Saturn in Sagittarius. Since most earth signs do NOT like surprises, even mutable Virgo…

From Square to Full: New Moon Writing Plan Continued

when building a writing life

It’s been two weeks since the new moon, solar eclipse broke through, although you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s been that recent when reading the other news that’s taken place since then.

The eclipse – already a glimpse of some distance past – has been plagued with more urgent news on #HurricaneHarvey, the president’s pardon, North Korea and whatever else is hitting the breaking news waves as you read this.

Things move fast. Your writing, however, shouldn’t be at that pace.

And that’s what this new moon planning is about. To encourage you to process the things you’re writing, edit it several times, research and do more research and really sit with your words and thinking.

The moon will be full in Pisces on Wednesday and moving from the square, where it asks that you push through the tension of your writing, and switch up how you define or…

In the shadow of the eclipse

Stellargnosis Astrology

True to any major eclipse, the winds have shifted and energies have been released. Perhaps it is not so surprising with Mercury having been retrograde at the eclipse that great storms would have been whipped up. The theme of devastation is water, correlating to the general background collective archetype of Neptune in Pisces. As Mars was part of this eclipse, and the eclipse configured to a grand fire trine (Uranus/Saturn), I had previously speculated that this was going to be a war eclipse. North Korea sent a missile over Japanese territory a week after the eclipse, and as Mars conjuncted the eclipse point on September 2nd, a day later on the 3rd, North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test.

September 2nd marked an important conjunction for the continuing unfolding energies fo this eclipse. On this day Mars direct shook hands with Mercury retrograde as they both passed over…

Astrological Overview: September 2017

Art and Magic

Hello, lovely readers! The hurricane has blown through here, and although my entire area is still healing, life is beginning to return to normal. August was a whirlwind, astrologically and here on the physical plane.

It should be a relief to you that Mercury goes direct in Leo on September 5th. Finally! It’s Virgo’s time to shine, now that her ruling planet is back in action. Not to mention that, for everybody else, too, you can probably sign that new lease or make that big career leap you were wisely waiting for. And maybe your phone will stop acting up. (Maybe.) That night, Neptune will be at Opposition, meaning it is the brightest it will be all year, and you’ll be able to see it all night long! It’s the best night to photograph it. Which is awfully fitting for the next event…

The moon is full in…

Charlottesville:Postscript -the Great Eclipse Terminus, Charleston, S.C. & Hurricane Harvey

Sabian Earth

The symbolism of the August 21, solar eclipse is amazing, powerful , extraordinary, epic or whatever superlative you care to use, each certainly applies.   I use the verb ‘is’ because although the actual eclipse is over its psychological impact and physical affects will be sustained for a long time.  I want to share with you how I interpret the symbolism of the eclipse and also Hurricane Harvey, both events I believe are associated with the eclipse.

The most obvious signature of the eclipse is its path across the American continent. The total eclipse phase began near Government Camp, Oregon at 10:16:55 AM PDT, August 21, and terminated near Charleston, South Carolina at 2:49 AM EDT.  The total eclipse thus perfectly bracketed the continental United States.  Can you  imagine, conceive of anything, anything at all, that could announce more clearly:  “America this one is made especially for you, Wake Up!”

The path of the eclipse almost exactly bisected the…

Eclipse/New Moon Leo: Completing

Words Out of Bounds

You are not complete without your darkness.

Love is neither light nor darkness,
It transcends all;
Connects all.

When you thread your light and darkness with love,
You will see that light is not light,
And darkness cease to be darkness,
They are all you.

To hear the cry of the world is not to sympathise,
But to simply receive and listen to the cry.
Receiving the world’s cry,
Receiving our own cry,
Is no-different.

Every death is agony,
Every rebirth is ecstasy;
And love is omnipresent,
In all of this.

Let love ravish you,
Let love annihilate you.
Love is beyond comprehension and imagination.
When it comes the time of your death,
It is allowing the limitless light, the darkness
To engulf you.
Let yourself be engulfed by love,
Let love hear your pain of losing your old form,
Let yourself dissolve in totality,
Without reservation.

It is through…
