Time to spread your wings

Astrology Soul Coach
Cosmic Dance for December 2013
This past week I spotted a Bald Eagle perched in the highest branches of one of the tallest trees in the area. Although there are a few around, this is a rare sighting in an urban area in this part of the country. Animals are messengers and this one carries a message very pertinent to the last month of 2013. “Time to spread your wings” seems like an obvious choice, but I don’t think that’s it. As we look forward to December and the first 6 months of 2014 we’re looking at two important retrograde cycles, the first by Venus, the planet of love from December 21st through January 31st and the second by Mars, the planet of action March through May.

The Eagle’s Message is about being patient, finding a higher vantage point from which to view life and embracing a larger perspective. Venus is associated with what we love and value in life – often a proxy for intimate relationships – but actually much more encompassing. Venus has been traveling through the practical and committed sign of Capricorn since November and will continue through the first week of March. During the retrograde pattern, in which from our perspective on earth Venus will appear to be moving backwards, we will revisit some old relationships and maybe even do some evaluation of currents ones. We might also give more thought to how we earn, invest and spend money. Retrogrades are times for reviewing previous choices and decisions and coming to greater clarity.

Relationships will continue to take center stage in the first half of 2014 with Mars moving through Libra, the sign of partnership. December is a good time for honest reflection about our goals – generally, financially and concerning love. Focus not on action but on improving the clarity of your perception.

Astrology Soul Coach – Cosmic Dance for November 2013

Friday, November 1st, 2013

If you read last month’s column and/or you follow astrology you might look at November and wonder, is this just more of the same? The thinking and communication planet Mercury is still moving in a retrograde pattern and we start the month with an Eclipse. Even though these patterns are continuations of a sort, in November we start to emerge from the mysterious and healing waters of Scorpio with a changed perspective. Mercury will end its retrograde on Sunday November 10th. Expect additional Insights and clearer answers to be emerging throughout the month.

The partner to the Lunar Eclipse last month is the New Moon Solar Eclipse on November 3rd. This time, the Moon will come in-between the Earth and the Sun temporarily disrupting the solar radiation and electro-magnetic transmission. Like the Lunar Eclipse, this can feel like our psychological, emotional and spiritual systems are being rebooted. But this time, the more masculine and yang rational mind is eclipsed by the more yin intuitive heart. Both the Sun and Moon will be moving through the sign of Scorpio which represents our need for transformation and even cathartic change.

This Solar Eclipse brings to mind the Hawaiian Goddess of volcanoes, Pele. The fiery, raging energy of the volcano is expressive, destructive and creative. It may put us in touch with deep, raw and almost instinctual emotions. The cosmic theme song this month might be “Shout” by Tears for Fears. But take heart; Solar Eclipses are associated with new beginnings. We don’t need to wait until the New Year to set some new intentions. And as we move into the holidays we can be more focused and clear about our feelings, more direct in our actions and behaviors, and more authentically ourselves. Let it all out!

Astrology Soul Coach – Cosmic Dance for October 2013

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Astrologically speaking October is a very dynamic month of change with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries on the 18th and a Mercury Retrograde pattern beginning on the 21st.  First let’s tackle the Eclipse. At the time of the Full Moon, the Earth will stand in-between the two luminaries keeping the light of the Sun from reaching and reflecting off of the surface of the Moon, thus creating a Lunar Eclipse. We can’t deny there are physical repercussions as the electromagnetic pulses are temporarily disrupted. Psychologically there are effects as well – mostly positive.

All eclipses are harbingers of change, but Lunar Eclipses, usually indicate we have come to the culmination or ending of a project, relationship or endeavor. Eclipses act like wild cards bringing new people, opportunities or events into our lives that prompt and guide us to make big changes. Many people report eclipses feel like their internal systems have been rebooted. It’s the chance to clean out some old “programming” and make a clean start. Even when an eclipse drops something in our lives that seems “out of the blue” or surprising, when all is said and done, we often realize the change is exactly what we needed.

Mercury, the planet of thinking and communication, will make its third and final retrograde cycle of 2013 starting this month. This one is in the mysterious, sensitive, complex, and psychological sign of Scorpio. Scorpio represents our need for cathartic change and transformation and the need for intense and passionate involvement. Minds and hearts will come together to reveal some amazing insights!

Both events – the Lunar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde – have change as a common denominator. We don’t always have control of the changes in the world around us, but we do have the ability to choose our interpretation and use events as valuable learning devices on our way to earning our PhDs in Earth School. Enjoy the ride. I’ll be back with you next month to talk about the Eclipse of new beginnings – a New Moon Solar Eclipse on November 3rd. I’ll leave you with the words of Viktor E. Frankl, “When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”

Astrology Soul Coach – Cosmic Dance for September 2013

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

The Mood for September is initiated in the first week with a New Moon in the practical and solitary sign of Virgo. Popular culture refers to this intelligent and flexible sign as the virgin. But if you dig underneath the surface for the historical and mythological roots of Virgo you find the goddess in her many forms and incarnations. This goddess has a strong need for privacy, solitude and personal space. She’s comfortable with herself and indeed knows she is complete and whole. From this foundation flows her sense of equanimity and wisdom and her ability to be of true service in the world. When you think of Virgo these are the words that should come to mind – analytical, logical, private, contemplative, integrity, humility and service.

It’s no mistake we often associate September, the season of Virgo as the time we go back to school. Virgo very much reflects her thinking ruling planet Mercury in her logical and analytical approach. As a grounded earth sign, she seeks to convert knowledge into practical applications. Virgo is associated with food, nutrition, exercise and positive routine. This is the month to set some new intentions for your own education, habits and schedules. Include plenty of private time to give yourself the opportunity to just breathe and contemplate.

This is also a good time to de-clutter your physical environments as symbolic of releasing some of the mental clutter as well. Reserve a room or space where you can meditate, read, study, or just be by yourself. If you are attracted to one or more stories of goddesses or ascended masters this is the time to get a picture, book, statue or some other representation of their energy as a reminder and to bring the essence of their energy into your space.

If we want to be of true service to our families, communities and world it’s wise to follow the lead of Virgo and nurture ourselves with healthy habits and environments and by creating a dynamic balance between being and doing.
