Transiting Uranus square Saturn

Uranus is currently square Saturn 🪐 both at 13 degrees. ⁣

Squares are forced awareness, so we have our individuality and sense of connection forcing awareness of our need for structure, boundaries and timing. ⁣

Be yourself. 💫💜⁣

When you try to be different and choose not to like or enjoy something because it’s ordinary, common etc., you aren’t being your unique self. You’re craving external validation that you’re unique. ⁣

You have nothing to prove. ⁣

No one else is the combination of everything that is YOU ❤️💥 ⁣

It can be boring and tedious to be around people that try so hard to make you think they are special. More importantly, you’re investing your energy into creating an image for others instead of reveling in who you are.⁣

People that just express who they are 🌀 regardless of how strange or ordinary the expression are vibrant and fascinating. Somehow they make even their ordinary parts feel unexpected, because of how everything combines together.⁣

You sparkle most 🌟 when you equally don’t care if people think you’re weird or ordinary. Just do you. It’s about as soulful as it gets.

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini today and I’m here to remind you that you can do ANYTHING during Mercury retrograde that you would do otherwise.

Metaphysics 101: Your mind is powerful. You will tend to create and reinforce what you believe. If you believe in the gloom and doom messages of Mercury retrograde you are more likely to have problems.

Here’s how I embrace it and advise clients.

💫 Be more open to personal reflection.

💫 Be more thoughtful about the power of your words.

💫 Be more intentional with your communications.

💫 Listen more. Be attentive.

💫 Listen to your soul.

💫 Evaluate lingering ongoing projects, finish them or intentionally take them off your current to do list so you stop giving them mental energy. You can revisit them at another time in life.

💫 You can absolutely sign contracts, mortgages, leases, etc. It’s best to ALWAYS read them carefully, regardless of a retrograde. Live your life and trust yourself. If this is the right time for you to do something, do it.

Astrology can be a powerful tool for getting into cosmic alignment. It’s still just a tool. There is no more powerful method for cosmic alignment than listening to your own soul. Please be wary of anyone that directs you to override that by telling you with certainty what you should do or not do something, especially when they cite a metaphysical tool to rationalize it.

In fact, here’s another great Mercury retrograde opportunity. Be open to seeng how you rationalize NOT listening to your soul.

We’ve all been there. We want to do something or not do something, and so we start rationalizing. If you are into metaphysics, you whip out your cards, pendulums, magic eight ball … anything to get the answer you want.

During Mercury retrograde, own what you deeply know rather than using your mind to rationalize what you want.

The universe is not cruel. It’s always teaching and supporting us, even during Mercury retrograde.

Remember, retrogrades are the illusion of backward motion, so know that you can keep moving forward, albeit maybe a bit more thoughtfully.

Super New Moon on 15 November 2020

I’m remembering a day I decided to clean out my stuffed bedroom closet. I thought I could just pull out a few things, move stuff around and somehow that would be enough. Rookie mistake.

After much frustration, I surrendered. I emptied the closet got everything out and immediately felt overwhelmed. Ugh. Why did I do this. Now I have to deal with all this stuff. In that moment, I realized this was about more than just my closet.

I began the thoughtful work of deciding what to keep and what to let go. I was surprised at how much stuff didn’t make it back in and I loved how easy it was to use and enjoy what did.

Last month was an invitation to start digging into our spiritual closets, letting go of what doesn’t work for us anymore. This month urges us to go a bit deeper, and brings a big payoff for doing so.

New moons are about beginnings and renewal. This Scorpio new moon on Sunday, 15 November 2020 offers us the opportunity to see through the layers of personality and rebuild from our soul.

There can be multiple reasons why pain lingers. One of those reasons is that we stay attached to painful ways of seeing ourselves. It becomes less about what someone did and more about telling ourselves we are not beautiful or lovable.

It’s not just what other people do that reinforces negative self talk. Sometimes, instead of seeing how far we’ve come, we may beat ourselves up for our choices, tell ourselves we are not worthy of abundance, believe that we’ve wasted chunks of our lives or that we’ve missed the boat on something we want so much.

The most powerful thing you can do for this new moon is to choose a wound you carry, and allow yourself to fully admit to yourself why you feel hurt. Look below the actions of someone else and see if you can notice is an underlying belief about yourself that you have been carrying. Chances are your mind used their action to reinforce that negative belief.

Use the extra support of the new moon to create a new beginning based on a belief that is more loving and do at least one thing to reinforce the loving belief. Ask for something you want, try something even if you could fail. Start a mental list of your best qualities.

It’s okay if you’re not able to immediately shift to the replacement belief. Letting go is a process and even recognizing the need to let something go is a step forward and creates the foundation for your new start.

I’ll share more about this period of transformation we are in when I discuss the full moon at the end of the month.

Spoiler alert: it will feel like you can exhale, like you can put down something heavy that you have been carrying for a long time. You’ll feel like you can breathe again.

The new beginning you create with this super new moon by facing these deeper truths will bring you to a full moon experience of faith in yourself and joyful release.

Transiting Mars in Aries

Someone asked me about transiting Mars in Aries.

Mars is at home in Aries

Transits show what outside energies will or won’t do for us. They affect us most when they connect to or trigger pieces in our natal or progressed charts.

Think about dramatic world events, they do not have the same impact on everyone.

This can be a great time for you to re-evaluate how and where you spend your energy.

Are you pouring energy into things that no longer matter to you?

Do you feel like you can’t stop investing your energy in something or someone, because you believe it will mean you wasted all the previous effort?

Are you ignoring what matters to you now?

Mars is your vitality, physicality, sexuality, ambitions, life force …

This is an amazing time to honestly re-evaluate how and where you express your energy through all areas of life, especially the areas Mars connects with in your chart. Consider everything …

⭐️ your presence, where you show up

⭐️ your money and resources

⭐️ how you communicate

⭐️ repetitive thoughts

⭐️ how you spend your time

⭐️ how you care for yourself and others

⭐️ causes that matter to you

⭐️ what you read, who you hang out with

⭐️ who you follow on social media

Put your energy into the life you want.

Ride the Mars energy wave and your life can accelerate in the direction you want.

Saturn Transits

Your natal chart shows the beliefs and relevant past life experiences that you bring into this life. A progressed chart shows you the kinds of opportunities and growth cycles you are bringing into your life now. Transits show you how your environment and energies outside of you impact you. The astrologer I studied with always said “it’s what outside energies will or won’t do for you.”

Saturn is transiting through Capricorn and will continue there for the next couple of years. Looking at the house(s) it is moving through in your natal chart can give you insight into what areas of your life you will restructure, build new resilience, and feel most impacted by the support or lack of support of others. Longstanding parts of your life will be challenged, and new things will form that will last a long time. Your limits will be tested in these areas. Limiting beliefs can be released and and healthy limits can be built.

Transits are rarely easy. They bring challenges, lessons and opportunities. The more open we are though, the more productive they are for us. Take a look at your chart and see where Saturn is activating your life and consider what kind of restructuring it might need, what kinds of limiting beliefs you may hold, or what kinds of limits you may need in your life.
