What can astrology do for you?

Astrology is the study of time. Astrology when used in application, describes the language of energy.

But how can further bodies of rock and gas hundreds of thousands of miles away affect us here on Earth?

 FULL MOON TAURUS 2016 - WTF

FULL MOON TAURUS 2016 - WTF

 
 
 

Drats. Befoiled. It seems as though the worst may have come before us. Terror lurks and demons rejoice. 

While we are in Scorpio season, the veil is thin. Our intuitions are sharp and the great beyond is close, if we listen. But it does not take a ghost to see the uprising of  unresolved hatred in this country. 

This full moon echoes the themes from the election. The moon represents the subconscious, illuminated. While this super moon is closer to the earth than usual, it seems clear that our inner worlds are striking through. 

The moon evokes a felt experience and in Taurus, allows us to connect to our value system. What we hold dear and our essential needs are surfaced. 

The sun, in scorpio, reminds us of the shit and the muck in our collective experience. That we are truly digging deep into the psyche of this country. The president elect, simply a reflection of the veiled evils that still are present in this current day and have always existed. The sun in Scorpio always eludes to an exposure of deep truths. 

What if our truth was that we are only as well as this earth?

A figure representing hatred, a reflection of our collective karma, that we have to heal within ourselves?  

In Scorpio, we Merge with our darkness and experience it clearly. Anger on the side of the oppressed and anger on the side of the oppressor. Millions protest against the millions that voted in favor of greed and racism.

This full moon brings a catharsis. A purging of repressed emotions and foul truths. 

Taurus seeks stability and security within the bounds of comfort and quality of life. Scorpio pulls us to go beyond and even upset our boundaries. Stable, solid, reliable. What is safe? We are re-evaluating our value systems at this time. 

Jupiter, our shining star of faith and belief at this time is not too visible by the sun and moon. If there is a bleakness that overcomes you, know that this is temporary. 

When a star is not visible, it's benevolent light is not as available to our consciousness. But believe, Jupiter in Libra this entire year is promising us that we will find deep meaning through relationships and connection. 

When we all hurt and cried from the election this week it made the bonds with our like-minded kin that much tighter. 

There is something powerful and revolutionary stirring in the ether. We may not know just quite yet, that the silent splicing of the scorpions tail yields a choice. That its poison may be our elixir. That seemingly rock bottom may transform into inventive cooperation.  We will be able to feel more of an uplifted perspective when the sun moves into Sagittarius and is in sight of Jupiter. So take in this climax of energy and  process your poisons as the moon wanes for the next two weeks. The new moon on November 28 will provide much more insight, so take time to integrate. 

In the spirit of this full moon, I recommend to let out the emotions that this week has brought up. To purge and be held by your friends and communities that are just as baffled. I recommend to grieve healthily, with supportive and peaceful community. Do not carry your sorrows, compost them into the ground, where beautiful art and magical, creative rebellion will spring forth. 

Herbs that would be helpful:

Astragalus- for immunity, and the ability to look up

Hawthorne- to physically and emotionally strengthen the heart

Dong quai- circulation, promote movement of stagnant energies 

Chrysanthemum- stress relief, and the ability to expand creative outlook

Fuschia flower essence- release deeply held emotions

 

  Prayer: That bad weather will allow us to hold each other that much closer. May we recognize with responsibility and pride that we are only as well as this earth.

LIBRA SEASON / BOBA SEASON

LIBRA SEASON / BOBA SEASON

 

its libra season so you know what that means! grab a BOBA. 

not joking! 

there are like 1000 reasons to have it or actually none at all. but as we experience this time of year, the idea of pleasantries makes a lot of sense. color coordinated drinks, sweet, bright bubbly walls and pop music.... all suggesting >> fun. sounds fun, tastes fun, looks fun. its also a lot of non-sense. aren’t all these qualities associated with libra? 

take it from a fellow sun-libra. boba is the essence of the libra archetype.

  • you are not having boba by yourself
  • you cannot be mad while having boba, even if you tried
  • you are not having emo conversation over boba, you’re gossiping and giggling, personally i feel very teen every time i have boba, and i submit.
  • you are not getting in no kinda fist fight while having boba in your hand
  • match your drink to your outfit or nah?
  • im a virgo rising, so i only get a quarter sugar

 

but in all seriousness, libra season brings up the qualities of relating. and in order to relate we must know how to listen, be kind and work together. 

this is a very important boba year. because jupiter is in libra for the next 12 months! which means that the collective gravitates toward libra qualities. so please, enjoy beautiful things and experiences >> with others. it’s a time to grow relationships whether it be business, romantic or just homies. 

connecting to pleasantry is not at all an escape from the heavy crazy things happening right now. but, when we cheer up a friend, we do something light and airy. when we want to raise the vibe, we make jokes, we look at creative options! we do what we need to get what we want, but we are kind.  

libra minds be like:  if we throw shade, we do it with a smile and grace. whoops

i made a video about ACTIVATING your libra. it has some great info for libras, aries folks, and its applicable to everyone this year!

SATURN SQUARE NEPTUNE REVELATIONS

SATURN SQUARE NEPTUNE REVELATIONS

(spoiler alert, its about to get emo)

________________________________________

if neptune is an ascending energy

and saturn is a grounding energy 

then we walk through the world lightly treading between earth and heaven. 

is this not the way to be? 

borrowing spiritual inspiration from the divine and transmuting that language into something tangible for us to use down here. yea boo lets do it. 

too much dreaminess and you’re a joke

too much reality and you’re a wet blanket 

the goal is to be sturdy with an expanded view.

the final of a series of 3 contacts between saturn and neptune culminates today. this will have been experienced differently for everyone. you can think of it as a 3 stage wake up call. 

(november 2015) the first being an idea. a wild one. maybe one that is being lived that is not aware of consequence. or a bout of inspiration that won’t shut up. how bout disillusionment with the current reality? 

(june 2016) the second, calling attention to that same feeling. where is the effort for that dream? coming out of a depression or nah? 

 the third, today. how are you experiencing the compromise between the grind of saturn and the fantasy of neptune? here’s my story:

the timing of the saturn/neptune square from august of 2015-september 2016 has fit perfectly into my life in the strangest way. i had a project that i wanted to complete, amongst other things going on, was my main goal for the year. but the project began as merely a whisper of a dream that i had no idea how to complete. i was going through a lot of changes this year based within figuring out a location and experiencing some dark things (saturn return blah). the second saturn/neptune contact in june had me really confused, but also called to attention that the mundane things that i was caught up with had nothing to do with my overarching vision! wtf. like i woke up from a weird haze.

im a sensy emotionally receptive person, it comes in handy with astrology and connecting to people in a real way.

a big milestone within my spiritual path is when i had my heart chakra blown wide open 3 years ago on a lunar eclipse. that moment i felt what its like to be completely enamoured, with life and even true subjectivity of reality. (NEPTUNE) and in contrast i have experienced some heavy realities this year that have challenged my relationship to my spirituality and world view. i also know too, what it is like to have a contracted heart. to be beaten down by the severities of work, circumstance, life lessons. (SATURN) 

finding a sweet spot between these two perspectives has been what I’ve worked through during these saturn/neptune squares

-having reality shook up in such a way that it is difficult to hold onto ideals

-adhering to either too much idealism or being bogged down by life

keyword in this saturn/neptune aspect is challenge.

and we all are going through this on a collective level, cmon have you seen the news? presidential election? and who would rather check the f out and play pokemon go? 

our ideals are highlighted. we love them, we hold them up and love to be in communion with them.   

these saturn neptune squares have challenged us in a way that through experiencing the garbage of what our reality can possibly be, we are like oh hell no, not doing that again. boy bye! 

today, i finally completed a goal that began as a whisper. nothing more than a fantasy. but not without the grunts of saturn making me feel shame for watching baby animal memes for hours instead of placing honest grueling efforts into my work. and not without the feeling of disillusionment that maybe what i desire is some horrible childish fantasy. 

if neptune is an ascending energy

and saturn is a grounding energy 

then we walk through the world lightly treading between earth and heaven. 

is this not the way to be? 

borrowing spiritual inspiration from the divine and transmuting that language into something tangible for us to use down here. yea boo lets do it. 

too much dreaminess and you’re a joke

too much reality and you’re a wet blanket 

the goal is to be sturdy with an expanded view. 

i guess buddha did save my ass.
