Many of us know our astrological Sun signs. But have you ever wondered what makes one, say for example Leo, so completely different from another Leo that you think they’re totally opposite Sun signs? Not all Leos are created alike, for good reason. Each of us is a composite of every planet in the galaxy. From the Sun all the way out to Pluto, each planet plays a role in our lives. MERCURY IS THE MESSENGER. This little planet close to the Sun rules our mind, our thoughts, communication, how we think and speak. Where this little planet was located at the time of your birth can give you powerful insight into how we each absorb, process and shares information…
Each New Moon is a chance to begin again. Each month, every 28 days we are given a fresh cycle to begin anew. Twelve, sometimes 13 times a year, a New Moon occurs. These initiate larger cycles within the context of our lives. How can we optimize this fresh start, this NEW MOON energy?
Feeling the Heat? Take a Soul Vacation. The intensity is on as August opens, whether by actual temperature or from life itself. For many, it feels like we’re living inside of a pressure cooker. Wow. Five out of ten planets are retrograde motion on August 1st, soon joined by Uranus turning retrograde at the end of the first week while we also prepare for the third and final eclipse of the summer on August 11.
Your astrological chartis your blueprint for this lifetime: Why You are YOU. Three primary functions make up each chart. These are the planets, signs, and houses. Most people are familiar with their Sun sign; some might even know what planet rules their sign. But unless someone has had their astrology chart read, they usually don’t know the house location of their Sun or any of their other planets. While the houses are often a less understood function of astrology, they are integral to knowing who you are; and so, they are of equal importance to signs and planets.
Try not to let the sultry summer month of July deceive you into thinking it is all that laid back. Multiple layers of cosmic energy unfolding will have you feeling like you are fighting against titanic forces if you try to accomplish anything. You are. Better to go with the flow. Ride the wave.
What exactly is a Rising Sign (also known as the Ascendant) and why would it garner so much attention as to be mentioned in the same phrase as a Sun sign? And, what significance does it have on your life? Because it is the literal starting point of our entire chart. It is the eastern-most point on our chart at the moment of our birth. Thus the Rising Sign determines where every single planet falls in our chart…
June opens on the heels of the Full Flower Moon in Sagittarius on May 29th still casting a glow over us. This is a generous, gentle and sensuous Full Moon underscored by a grand planetary formation in water signs. This grand water alignment takes some of the harsh edges off the jolt that many of us experienced in May when Radical Uranus and Motivating Mars sharply shifted gears, challenging each other.
What’s my moon sign and what does it say about me? Many of us are familiar with our Sun sign. We will occasionally read our horoscope in newspapers, magazines or online. However, there is much more to our own personal horoscope. Each planet, from the Moon to Pluto, is in a particular sign and house at the moment of our birth. Together, these comprise our astrological chart. The Moon is our emotional interior, our feelings, how we interpret and digest stimulus on the deepest level. Only when we are very, very at ease, do we show our Moon and relate to others with it.
