Supermoon Eclipse May 2022

So excited about a special cool weirdness this year 💫🌕✨

First a few quick facts about the upcoming trifecta on Sunday night, 15 May 2022 (around 11:30pm ET)

  • Full moon
  • Supermoon
  • Lunar eclipse

The upcoming full moon is also a lunar eclipse and will occur close to the moon’s perigee, making it a supermoon.

Perigee is the point when the moon is closest to the earth, so the moon appears about 7% bigger than average.

There are actually TWO total lunar eclipses this year. That’s unusual. The next is in early November with a Scorpio sun and Taurus moon.

The really extra weird fascinating thing is that both eclipses will last 84 minutes. Their total duration differes only by 4 seconds.

This is the most balanced pair of lunar eclipses in 430 years.

signs

Venus rules Taurus and Libra

Our current transits today include sun in Taurus and moon in Libra. Feels like a good day to discuss how both are ruled by Venus, the energy of love, beauty and values. Big difference:

Taurus is an earth sign. Libra is an air sign.

Taurus is more about what’s tangible, about endurance, about sensual pleasures.

Libra is more about harmonic connection, aesthetics, relationships with people.

A Libra type artist is more likely to have an idea and then express it artistically. The idea often precedes the picture, song, etc.

A Taurus type artist is more likely to immerse themselves in the media, e.g., pottery clay, paints, etc., and then have the material inspire them to create.

Do you see how the more you understand the planetary rulers and elements, the signs become clearer?

houses

8th house is your kitty belly

One of the signs cats trust you is they show you their belly, even more so if they let you touch or rub their belly. This spot is a point of vulnerability for them. Their vital organs are there.

Your 8th house is your kitty belly. It’s your zone of vulnerability, intimacy, victimization, death and transformation. It’s where you keep your secrets, parts of you that you protect.

Where the 2nd house is your resources, and experiencing yourself as a resource, the 8th house is the sharing of resources and the way you give yourself to others.

Planets in any house show where you came in investing your energy, including lessons and experiences you believe will move you forward.

karma

Karma

What does karma mean to you? Do you sense karmic patterns playing out in your life? Do you believe you reap what you sow, what goes around comes around?

Here’s what I believe …

When I read karma in a chart, I don’t see punishment, I see recognition. I believe there is a connection between what we believe and what shows up in our lives, because what we believe becomes real and we gravitate towards what we recognize and expect.

It’s not about deserving pain, it’s not about being punished. The universe is based on love and has no investment in hurting you.

I believe it’s about having your beliefs played out only this time you are on the other side. You believed it was okay to lie to people and then find yourself being lied to, you believed it was okay to bully others and then find yourself the one being hurt. You’re seeing reflected back the truth that you believed.

As you heal your pain and deeply understand you do NOT deserve to be hurt, abused, disrespected etc., you heal not only your wounds, you also heal your beliefs. You create a new cycle of cause and effect, where your truth is based on loving action and so that is what you regularly expect and bring into being.

If you’ve been hurt, if you grew up in an abusive home, if you’ve had your heart broken by someone that wronged you …

I believe the value in seeing your part is not based on shaming you for the evil actions in another life or earlier in this one, it’s about seeing your value and expanding your beliefs around self love and how life can be better.

The more you deeply understand your worth, the more you become available only for healthy experiences, and the less pull you feel towards that which does not improve your life or align with your highest good.

metaphysics

Soul Connections

If you believe in reincarnation, you’ve likely been curious about karmic connections you’ve felt with others, wondering if you were lovers, friends, enemies, family etc. in other lives.

Did you know that karmic relationships are often not about how and when you knew someone in another life? They can also be about connecting with someone that came in with a lesson like one of yours, so there’s a shared intention between souls to learn or heal together.

I often hear people talk about relationships as if their value depends on having known someone before. What if your soul nudged you to this person not because you already knew them, but because you needed to meet them?

What if this is the first time your souls have met on earth and it is this very life that ignites an eternal connection? What if falling in love now leads to more lives together?

Having a karmic history with someone doesn’t automatically translate into a healthy, loving relationship. Lots of people that have hurt you in this life, hurt you in other lives. Having known someone before isn’t always a fun thing.

Understanding karmic connections can offer insight into a current relationship, but regardless of your history with someone, what matters most is what you do together in this time and space.

Soul connections are not bound by earthly experiences. Cosmic love has no limits and doesn’t depend on shared earthly experience. We all come from the same source. These lives are only a part of our collective journey.

aspects

Moon square Venus

In karmic astrology, your natal chart is read as a painting of your past lives. The beliefs, talents, struggles, goals … all that you bring into this life is connected to experiences in other lives.

Squares to the moon in a natal chart are often challenging, because they show past life conflicts with family, feeling cared for and even survival. Squares create a forced awareness and there’s almost a competition between the two energies.

Moon square Venus is an especially challenging aspect to deal with in relationships. Please know that people with this can have loving, lasting relationships. I’ve seen it. Don’t despair if you have this, or any other thing in your chart that someone has told you is bad.

When someone tells you something in your chart is hopeless, they have shown you that their understanding of astrology and experience reading charts is limited.

Why does this Venus/Moon square show up? There’s karmic history where your values and emotional needs were at odds with each other. This could have played out in many ways. For example, marrying for money or someone your family forced on you.

The moon is also food and survival, so your karmic past could include doing things to survive that went against your values. Sometimes people with this aspect think they are horrible people, when they haven’t done anything really terrible in this life.

If you have this, you may struggle with feeling fulfilled in life and even wonder what it feels like to be truly satisfied. The more you can own your values, act with integrity and open yourself up emotionally (even when it’s hard) the more you will become aware of what this aspect is teaching you and learn how the energies can work together.

The square doesn’t doom you, it’s a window into some wounds that need healing so that you can joyfully live your life.

astrology basics, signs

Aries (spring) is coming!!

Spring is on the way! This year the vernal equinox happens on 20 March 2022 at 11:33am ET and with it the tropical zodiac resets to zero degrees Aries.

I LOVE Aries energy 💜♈️

Yes, I love all the zodiac signs 🙄 each is special and amazing. Spoiler alert: you have all of them in your chart. 🤔😍🥰

I also have Venus in Aries 🙈☺️ so that makes Aries my go to style for love. ❤️🔥

The signs show our karmic history. The sign of Venus in your chart gives insight into your past life experiences around love, values, and worth. 💗

Aries is the most spontaneous sign in the zodiac and it’s about new beginnings. It’s the moment fire ignites. Aries in your chart shows your innocence, passion for what’s new, willingness to start fresh, when and what you tend to learn experientially.

Aries is ruled by Mars ♂️so Aries is fueled by action. Wherever Mars is in your chart is an area that energizes you and where Aries is in your chart shows you where you can thrive using a style of inspired action.

While there may be 🙏 an end to changing our clocks, I always remember the spring forward of skipping ahead as such an Aries moment. 😂

Try something new next week. Give someone a chance, regardless of what you heard about them. Make a snap decision. Jump in your car and drive somewhere. Be humble and learn as if you are a novice. Freshen up something in your life.

Enjoy! ❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️

Still on a break from readings and regular posting … popping in so WP doesn’t completely forget I exist 😂🙄

transits

Great time to declutter your mind

Okay so we’ve got this gorgeous square between retrograde Mercury and Uranus, sun and Pluto are conjunct … I want to share something I do periodically, especially during transits really invite us to make decisions and mentally cleaning house.

Close your eyes, take 3 slow deep breaths, then make a list on paper (not electronically) of all the projects, ideas to explore, stuff you’ve been meaning to do, stuff you should do etc.

Include everything.

Learn a new language, clean out the frig, read more to your kids, have that difficult talk with your neighbor, eat healthier, exercise, clean out your desk, clean out the pics on your phone, paint the bathroom …

List ALL of it. All the stuff running through your head that you need to be doing.

Once you’ve gotten it all down, do 3 more slow deep breaths and review the list.

First, circle anything that supports your well being. We’ll come back to those at the end.

Next, cross off everything you don’t really want to do, stuff you feel obligated or pressured to do. You can revisit each later if you ever want to do so, but for now you don’t want to it so cross it off. These things get no more of your daily mental energy.

Next, cross off things you do want to do, but now is not the time. If it isn’t something you have actual plans to start or do in the next few weeks, cross it off. Doing so doesn’t mean you will never do it, now is not the time. These things get no more of your daily mental energy.

Look at everything that isn’t circled or crossed off and ask yourself how important each is to you right now. Today. Does it soothe your soul, bring you joy or exquisite pleasure, energize you, amplify love in your life? If so, circle it. If not, cross it off.

Now look at the circled items. If the list of circled items feels overwhelming, cross some more off. This isn’t a list for your whole life, this is a list for your life now and you can only do so much now.

Once you have it narrowed down to a few things, do three more slow deep breaths and consciously choose to do them, then cross them off as well, because they are now part of your daily life and no longer require you to contemplate doing them.

You may not eat perfectly healthy every day, but you’ve decided to make it part of your daily life. So do it and if you have an off day, eat better the next snd move on. Maybe you don’t read to your kids every night, but do your best and when you miss a night, get back to it.

The point here is to stop thinking about all these things you believe could improve your life and just start doing some of them that fit your life now.

It’s incredible how freeing, light, productive and energized we become when we clear the mental to do list we’ve got running in the background on a loop.

Let me know if you do it.

Moon Phases

November 2021 New Moon

This new moon is happening on November 4th at 5:14pm ET at 12 degrees of Scorpio. I love that’s it at 12 degrees, because 12 is such a magical number. Perfect for a Scorpio new moon. Twelve is the one of self combined with the two of relationship that adds to a three, the number of creative self-expression, communication, and divine time where past, present and future exist together.

As if the 12 magic wasn’t enough for the new moon, it exactly opposes Uranus at 12 degrees of Taurus and Uranus always brings sparkle and surprise.

Looking at the whole of it, I feel like this new moon offers an opportunity to demonstrate a deeper level of self acceptance by doing something that you have been too scared to do.

Surprise yourself! Look inside, look at the scary stories your mind tells you about yourself and choose to trust yourself. Choose to move through the fear and into deeper self-acceptance, then DO SOMETHING. It can be a little thing or big thing, just something that you have been telling yourself that you are not _________ enough to do it.

Maybe you’ve been telling yourself that you’re not smart enough, pretty enough, loved enough … whatever it is, believe that you are already enough.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been scared, or how many times you could have already made this shift, what matters is that you can make it now. You can trust yourself now. You can accept yourself more deeply now.

Wield some of that mystical magical Scorpio energy for yourself and let the scary self-talk fade.

Have a beautiful new moon away
