The Dark of the Moon Feb 5 - 9th

The three days preceding the New Moon are called the Balsamic Phase, or really just the Dark of the Moon. The Moon's cycle is about 29 days and it goes from New to Full and then back to New again within that 29 days. The Dark of the Moon is the very ending of this cycle ,and this is the time when the earth and all of nature is quieting down and pulling inward.  You can feel it all around you if you pay attention. Physiologically, people are at a lower ebb and their energy tends to be lower, which is exactly how its supposed to be.  People think they should be on 'go' all the time, but unfortunately that just works against them.  Human physiology and emotions are cyclic, and this cycle is reflected and symbolized by the Lunar Cycle.  When the Moon is dark, take a break.  This is the time when we feel more tired, when we need more sleep and when our libidos are lowest. We feel more introverted. This is the time when we need more time to process, to relax, to pull in and to de-stress.  This is not the time to plan a big party or to take on a big physical project.  Of course sometimes you have to do what you have to do, but if you have a choice in planning, the times closer to the Full Moon are when energies run higher and people are naturally more extroverted and energetic.

We process more during our dreams during a Dark of the Moon phase, which is why we need more sleep. Yes, we can actually let our subconscious work some stuff out for us whilst we sleep, so we don't have to do it all in our conscious waking hours!  Thank goodness. The balsamic phase is the letting go phase - we're getting ready for the new cycle that commences with the New Moon.

So, for the next 3 days, do what you can to give yourself and your body a break. Get a massage, take a bubble bath, cuddle up with your sweetie, watch movies, meditate, allow yourself to dream, and don't feel guilty about saying 'no' when someone wants you to do something you don't feel up to. Following and honouring our natural physiological cycles is the key to mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health!

Jupiter conjunct North Node - lots of people leaving the planet

First Natalie Cole, then David Bowie, then Alan Rickman, then Celine Dion's husband Rene Angelil, then Glenn Fry from the Eagles passed away today too. There were a few others as well, and some were just so shocking.  My own dear mom passed away just a few days ago as well. She was my heart, my best friend and my ally.  I'm still in shock, and it helps to hear how deeply she was loved by her many friends who have called.

Jupiter has been conjuncting the North Node in the sky for the past couple of weeks. Jupiter is usually present when someone makes their transition from body to spirit, as Jupiter is all about moving onward and upward and into the great beyond. In earthly life this comes out as travel and education and opportunity to move beyond our backyard boundaries. The North Node is really just a mathematical point in the sky, but it has great significance. It represents your destiny, and what you came into this life to accomplish. Jupiter and the Node together show many people have fulfilled their destiny, or have done what they were here to do and were ready to move upward and onward.
It's sort of like a door of opportunity opened for people who were getting ready to leave, and many took it.  I'm happy my mom is with my Dad now and peaceful and happy in spirit form. I expect to receive some signs and messages from her soon, but I'm sure she's pooped from making the transition and getting accustomed to her new dimension.

The total blood moon eclipse we had last October was a doozy. It was incredibly strong, and eclipses usually indicate some sort of big transition for people who have aspects to it in their chart.  Usually within 6 months, although it was so powerful its effects could go on for a long time.  The eclipse was at 4 Aries, and it hit my Mom's Sun.

It's so sad for those of us who miss our loved ones as they transition onward, but I'm so proud of my mom for her strength and her courage and I'm happy she did it all her way.  I love you Mom.

The Astrology of Beauty

What are the aspects that make someone unusually beautiful?  Inner beauty always shines through of course, but I'm talking about those people that have classically beautiful looks. John F. Kennedy Jr is one amazing example. Gorgeous. People like Elvis Presley, Robert Redford and Sharon Stone are all extremely gorgeous people. Remember Sharon Stone when she was in Total Recall? I remember thinking she was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen.

So, what are the astrological indicators of people that are seen as unusally physically beautiful?  It seems that Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces, strong Venus and Neptune are the most usual indicators of unusual beauty and being photogenic as well.

I've noticed that people with Capricorn rising are often very good looking. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which gives great bone structure usually. John John Kennedy was a Capricorn rising.  Elvis Presley was a Capricorn Sun too actually. My girlfriend who is a double Capricorn is extremely beautiful.

I've also noticed that many models are Virgo or Virgo rising. Again with the earth signs. It gives a more streamlined appearance in many cases (not all) and Virgo rising people sometimes have a very neat looking appearance. They're just well put together.

Venus is the planet that rules beauty, and those with prominent Venus placements tend to be seen as beautiful. Angelina Jolie has Venus in Cancer right on her Ascendant, and she is definitely quite beautiful.

For true ethereal beauty though, Neptune wins hands down! Neptune gives one a sort of a glamour, or other worldly kind of beauty.  Pisceans are co-ruled by Neptune, so you see a lot of very beautiful and photogenic Pisces types.  Cindy Crawford has 6 planets in Pisces, and has a Cancer Rising. Neptune in Scorpio is trine her Cancer Asc, and all her Piscean planets are trine her Asc. She also has Venus aspecting her Asc as well.  Very watery gal, and very beautiful.

Sharon Stone is a Pisces Sun, with a Virgo rising, and she has Neptune aspecting her Asc. She's got all 3 things going for her. Plus, she also has Pluto right on her Virgo Asc, giving her an extra dose of sex appeal.

Robert Redford is a Virgo Sun with 4 planets in Virgo, plus he is a Pisces Rising. He has Neptune conjunct all his Virgo planets too, making him even more Neptunian. Could be why he is so successful in the movies, since Neptune rules movies and photography in general. It makes one very photogenic.

John Kennedy Jr was a Capricorn Sun with 3 planets in Capricorn, and a Virgo rising. His Venus, beauty planet, was in Capricorn trine his Virgo Ascendant.  He also had Neptune sextile his Asc. Hr had all the factors of unusual beauty in his chart - Capricorn, Neptune, Virgo and Venus.

Elvis Presely was a Capricorn Sun with 3 planets in Capricorn. His beauty planet Venus was in Capricorn too, conjunct his Sun. He also had Neptune in Virgo trine his Capricorn planets.

What about someone more present day, like Brad Pitt.  Brad Pitt has 4 planets in Capricorn, including his Venus, and Neptune is aspecting all of them.

New Moon Magic January 9 - 10, 2016

                                                                    Energy flows where intention goes

New Moons are magical times, as they represent new beginnings and possibilities for our future. The Moon is dark when its New, and the earth is still, calm and quiet. All of nature is too, which includes human beings. New Moons are times to be introspective and to listen to inner guidance. The darkness of the Moon represents the dark and fertile subconscious mind, and the intuitions and visions that arise if we give ourselves sacred space and time to listen.

In ancient times when women were away from artificial lighting and spent most of their time out of doors, women bled with the New Moon and ovulated at the Full Moon, as they were in total sync with the lunar phases. So, theoretically, if most women were in sync with the Moon, they would all be starting their periods today or tomorrow. These New Moon times were their vision times, and they retreated to moon lodges or red tents to give themselves sacred space and respite from their regular lives.

New Moons in general are amazing opportunities to focus inward and allow inspirations and guidance to come from within. We can also use this doorway to get clear and conscious about what we want to manifest as well. The days of the New Moon are fabulous to write down intentions and goals for the coming month, or even year. Because the Moon is now starting her waxing cycle, or cycle of growth, the seeds of intention we plant now will only gain energy and momentum as times goes on. Write your intentions down on paper and put the paper under a crystal somewhere and leave it to manifest, or even just say them aloud. Words carry energy, and putting that energy out into the Universe is a very powerful thing. Because the New Moon is in the sign of Capricorn, make intentions focusing on Capricorn things, such as job, career, income or prosperity, or anything practical really.

The New Moon on January 9th is at 20 degrees of Capricorn, and the Sabian Symbol for 20 degrees of Capricorn is  "A hidden choir singing." Sabian symbols tell us what these degrees represent on a spiritual level.  This symbol talks about being open to your feminine and intuitive side, as there are messages to be heard that are not apparent. Its also about being open to the music of the spheres, as we are all connected to a single source.

Because the Moon is dark, be open to inspirations or ideas that pop into your head over the next few days, especially as the Moon starts to enter her Crescent phase on the 12th. As she gains light, we start to see some new directive or idea take shape, or we get excited about some new plan.

How to find your Personal Year Number for 2016


The 2016 Year Number

To get what the energy of 2016 is going to be all about, you simply add the numbers together to get a total.   2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9.

2016 is an 9 number, which is the last number in the cycle and represents completions. This could be very positive completions, in that you finally fulfill that long awaited dream or goal.  In some cases you may finally let go of a person, habit, circumstance or thing that is no longer needed in your life. Because this is a highly spiritual number, you may be attracted to people who have qualities you admire in a spiritual or higher sense. You may decide to pursue your career in a new way, such as teaching it instead of practicing it. It's also about forgiveness, as 9 is also the most spiritual number in the cycle. There should be a big interest in spiritual topics this year in a general sense. 9 is also the number of compassion, and of being a humanitarian.  Think back to 2007 - that was a universal 9 year as well. Something ended or came to fruition or you made a choice in that year that impacted the next 9 years.  I actually ended a relationship that year.

This 9 year  is the general number for the year for everyone, but each person will also have their own Personal Number for the year 2016, and this will be calculated by their birthdate.

An amazing healer and biokinesiologist friend I have gave me a wonderful visualization for not just the New Year, but for any time. Give yourself a colour, any colour you like. Let's say its pink. Then you visualize that pink colour going out on your path in front of you for the next year. And on the path you see love, and peace, and joy, and abundance and prosperity and calm and passion and all the things that you want in your life for the coming year. What she has found in her professional practice, is that people who do that end up with amazing eyesight! She found that people who are afraid of what the future holds can only look a few months ahead, and their eyes are not as healthy as a result. It's like they are afraid to 'look' too far down the road. This exercise makes them feel great about their future, which in turns makes them happy to look that far ahead, which in turn enhances their eyesight.  I've been doing it myself, and it makes me feel so much calmer about the future, and now I know its helping my eyesight too.

Your Personal Year Number

It's easy to find your Personal Year Number.  You take the day and the month you were born, and add it to the number of the current year - in this case its 9.   So, for example if you were born on June 9th,

   6  (birth month)
+ 9  (birth day)
+ 9  (current year)
 = 24

You would reduce that 24 to a single digit, so 2 + 4 = 6.
This person is in a 6 Personal Year.

Another example:  If you were born on November 27, you would take 11 (the 11th month), and add it to 27, and then add that to the year number of 9.

   11  (birth month)
+ 27 (birth day)
+ 9   (current year)
= 47

Then reduce it to a single digit, so 4 + 7 = 11.  Then reduce it again 1 + 1 = 2.
This person is in a 2 Personal Year.

If you get the number 11 or 22, these are considered to be Master Numbers, and these years are considered special.

Personal Year 1 -  the year of new beginnings!  This is the start of a whole new cycle, and you'll be laying the groundwork for the next 9 years ahead. It's an excellent time to get involved in a new love relationship, or to experience a renewal of your current one.  Some may take a second honeymoon. It's a year of major changes, job improvements and independence. Travel can provide a way to enjoy life in a new way.

Personal Year 2 - the year of companionship, harmony and teamwork.  The number 2 relates to the Moon, and so is a year of more patience, tact, cooperation and understanding.  It's a more gentle and artistic year. The Moon is also changeable, so there may be a change of residence under this yearly number, or even a change in your workplace. This is the year when people tend to form relationships of all kinds, including friendships and love relationships. They don't want to go it alone. You're going to feel more nurturing and emotional under this influence.  There may be trips across the water.

Personal Year 3 - the year of communications, expansion, mental energy and short journeys. You're busy this year, and you may be doing more writing or talking, or using more of your creative skills.  This is the year for having more fun in your love relationships - for flirting and for socializing.  You could become quite the social butterfly, or at least lean more that way than usual.  This isn't really the year to make serious commitments in your love life. Trips tend to be on the shorter side, or you may take a lot of road trips or weekend getaways.

Personal Year 4 - the year of security and of laying down foundations.  This is another Saturn year, so getting ahead professionally is important to you, except this is a more of a 'roll up your sleeves and get to work' kind of year. You're laying the groundwork for your future and getting organized. You're likely taking on extra responsibilities this year, whether at work or with aging parents or perhaps signing a mortgage etc.. Love relationships may begin with someone older or with someone who has authority or power. Travel tends to be more work related.

Personal Year 5 - the year of change, travel and expansion. You're looking for more freedom and fun this year.  It's actually an amazing year for love and romance and you'll likely have plenty of opportunity that way if you're single and looking. If you're already involved you're going to want to do more travel with your partner or experience new things together.  In some cases people will break up under this influence if things aren't going well. It's a great cycle for making changes in your job and for pursuing your ideas.

Personal Year 6 - a year focused on love, family and domestic happenings. This is a Venus year, so is concerned with developing or keeping harmony within the home and within your personal relationships.  This is one of the best cycles for marriage and commitment, as well as for pregnancy, birth, buying a home or anything that denotes settling down. It's also a very social year, and a year for beautifying your environment. Advancement comes through social contacts.

Personal Year 7 - a more spiritual year, focused on inner growth and personal well-being. You may want more quiet or private time this year, or at least more time to yourself.  It's a good time to identify and eliminate any self defeating behaviours.  This cycle isn't really about relationships per say, but more about figuring out how you feel about relationships - which again requires more time for introspection. This is the year to take care of body, mind and spirit.

Personal Year 8 - as stated above, this is a year for achievement, power, abundance, prosperity and for manifesting.  You could make big moves this year and achieve recognition for what you do.  It's a powerful year professionally, but also in whatever area you choose to focus on.  As a Saturn year, this could be a 'reap what you sow' kind of year as well. A debt or obligation from the past that was never dealt with could reappear, or people from that past could get in touch. Love relationships tend to either move forward with commitment, or end because you don't see a future with someone.  This is not a 'coasting' kind of year.

Personal Year 9 - the last year in the cycle, this is the year for completions and endings. This could be very positive completions, in that you finally fulfill that long awaited dream or goal.  In some cases you may finally let go of a person, habit, circumstance or thing that is no longer needed in your life.  Because this is a highly spiritual number, you may be attracted to people who have qualities you admire in a spiritual or higher sense. You may decide to pursue your career in a new way, such as teaching it instead of practicing it.

Personal Year 11 - this year still has the vibration of the 2 (1 +1), but its special because its a master number.  There is a deeper spiritual awareness with this yearly number, and you may have your own special 'ah ha' moment this year. You're more compassionate, more idealistic, more altruistic and more of a humanitarian.  There is also an element of recognition with this number as well so you may become known for your good works. In love relationships you feel attracted to those who also embody those same traits of compassion etc.

Personal Year 22 -  this year still has the vibration of the 4 (2 +2), but its special because its a master number.  This is an extraordinary year when you may do extraordinary things. It's more of a detached year when you are focused on humanity as a whole as opposed to one on one love relationships, unless you find someone who shares these same goals.  You have lofty goals and plans, probably involving helping others, and you can achieve these goals and plans. There will be major accomplishments this year,

Your Personal Month Number

Yes, you can also find your own Personal Month number, and even your Personal Day number!  To find your Personal Month number, start with your Personal Year Number, and then add a number for each month starting with January until you reach the month you want to know about.

For example, lets say its your Personal Year number of 3.   And this is January, the first month, so you add a 1 to the 3, and you get 4.  So January is a 4 month for this person.   And then Feb will be a 5 month, and March will be a 6 month, and so on.

Another example.  Let's say your Personal Year number is an 8.   And you want to know what April will bring.  So, start with the 8 and then add one number for each month.  January will be a 9 month, Feb will be a 1 month (because we start at 1 again after 9), March will be a 2 month, and then April will be a 3 month.

You can apply the same meanings for the Personal month numbers as for the Personal year number - just realize that the influence is a bit weaker because its only 4 weeks instead of a year.

If you really want to go deep, you can get your Personal Day number too.  Just take your personal month number....say its a 3, and then add the day to it.  So, if January is your personal month of 3, and today is the 9th, then add 3 + 9, = 12. Reduce again to 3.  This is your 3 day, and you can expect a 3 vibration to the day with 3 happenings and events.

Astro Fertility

Ancient astrology says that a woman’s ability to conceive increases dramatically when the Sun and the Moon in the sky are at the same angle as when the woman was born.  This knowledge goes way back to Egyptian astrologers, and many astrologers today still use this old wisdom.  So, if you were born on a first quarter moon, then you will have maximum fertility every month at the first quarter moon - specifically 24 hours before and a few hours after the exact moment of your lunar phase return.

This ancient astrological theory has been revived and even proven by Slovakian scientist and astrologer Dr. Eugen Jonas in the 1960s. Through his testing he found that a woman has a ‘spontaneous ovulation’ when the Sun and Moon in the sky are at the same angle as when she was born. He found that fertility is unusally high for the 24 hours prior to the exact time of this Lunar Phase Return, and for 12 hours after. Many western doctors haven't yet picked up on this, simply because Western medicine has unfortunately not progressed to the point of being open to these kinds of influences. 

So a woman actually has 2 chances per month to get pregnant! The first being her natural ovulation time, usually about halfway through the cycle.  And the second during her Lunar Phase Return. If these two times happen to overlap, then the chances of conceiving are very, very high. This works even if one’s lunar phase return happens during menstruation! This explains why many women get pregnant just before, during and after their menses, which are times traditionally thought of as safe. These times are also important to know if you are trying to avoid getting pregnant.

You can also go one step further and determine the sex of the child based on the sign of the moon during conception. If conception takes place when the Moon is in a male sign - Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius, the odds of having a boy are very high. Female signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. 

The Moon symbolically represents women, childbirth and menstrual cycles, so it stands to reason that tracking the lunar cycles would be a huge key in getting pregnant.

1,111 oz diamond - a cosmic wink

I recently wrote a post about 11:11, and how it's been seen more frequently all over the world. 11:11 represents the awakening of consciousness on the planet. It's also called' The Shift'. To read more about what it means, check out my post
Have you been seeing 11:11 a lot lately?

A diamond was recently found in a mine in Botswana - the largest diamond found in over a century. It's also interesting that it's a diamond. Diamonds reflect all colours of the rainbow, which in turn represent the 7 main chakras. Diamond is a very sovereign stone, long-believed to carry divine energies. That is why they were often set into crowns, to enhance inner vision, intuition and connection to Spirit. Diamonds not only clear one's energy, but it also allows a person to connect more easily to higher frequences. (from The Spiritual Meaning of Diamonds)

Which is exactly what this cosmic awakening is all about.!!!  So, here we have it again. I love these little 'cosmic winks' from the Universe, reminding us of what is really going on and to stay mindful.

Justin Trudeau - the astrology of our new Prime Minister

Justin Trudeau just became the second youngest Prime Minister of Canada at age 43. He's the first born son of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who was the Prime Minister of Canada for 16 years from 1968 to 1984.

Besides politics being in his blood, what does Justin's astrology chart say about his ability to lead a country?

Justin was born on Christmas Day in 1971. He's a Capricorn Sun, Virgo rising with an Aries Moon.

This is a chart of a man who is absolutely made to be a leader! First of all, he's a Capricorn Sun. Capricorn is the sign of authority, leadership and government. Capricorns always rise to the top like cream in whatever endeavour they choose to pursue.  That Capricorn Sun is square powerful Pluto. Wow! This is quite a combination.  This shows that he does not shy away from challenges, and may even thrive on them. That Sun (father) square Pluto in Libra also points to his having a very powerful father, and interestingly enough his father Pierre Trudeau had a Sun in Libra.  Justin's Ascendant is 3 degrees of Virgo, and his Sun at 3 Capricorn exactly trines that Ascendant. He actually is who he seems to be.

His Moon is in warrior Aries in the 8th house. Aries Moons fight for what they believe is right, and they have no time or patience for subterfuge or dishonesty. Aries is the most honest sign of the zodiac, mostly because they are so in the moment in their feelings. The 8th house is all about change and transformation, so he's here to make a difference. That Moon is exactly oppose changeable Uranus, so he's not kidding when he talks about making a significant change in this country. That aspect is also an aspect of being separated from those he loves. It speaks to his turbulent childhood when his mom had some mental health issues and he was separated from her for a while, as well as the ups and downs of being the child of a powerful man, as well as dealing with the death of his brother. (Actually, Margaret Trudeau used to babysit my best friend here in North Vancouver, way back in the day) That moon in passionate Aries trines Jupiter in expansive Sagittarius. He has big ideas, and lofty ideals and he truly believes that he can achieve them. I have no doubt that he can as well.

He has responsible Saturn - the ruler of his Sun - sitting right at the top of his chart. Saturn here says he is seen as 'the one in charge', as this position denotes his reputation as well as his career.  In this position it also says that he takes his position very seriously and is bound and determined to do what is right. It's an ambitious placement, but you'll find its a very common placement in the royal family, as they were born into duty and responsibility, just as Justin was in a sense. Saturn here shows someone who is very ambitious and hard-working and perhaps even methodical in his approach to achieving his dream. Saturn here wants to be at the top of the heap. That Saturn squares his Asc, showing that its part of who he is, and that he'll always be trying to prove himself in some way, possibly because of his father, or trying to live up to his father. His Saturn is also retrograde. This is usually the position of someone who's father was not there for him in some way, and leaves the person with the sense of having to prove himself, or prove to himself that he is capable and worthy. His Capricorn Sun and Saturn retrograde tells me he has a lot of self doubt actually, but its being channeled in a positive way. When you think about it, who would really want to take on the job of running a country? Who would really want that kind of pressure, and not great pay? Someone who has something to prove, which means they almost all have strong Saturn in there somewhere.

He also has idealistic Neptune exactly square his Ascendant. This can be the aspect of someone who has rose-coloured glasses on and who doesn't see reality as it is. With all his earth, this is not really a problem for Justin, and that Neptune just adds to his sense of idealism and hope for a better future. It's the perfect combination - he has the vision, as well as the practical earth to ground it all into reality.

His North Node is in Aquarius in the 6th house and is conjunct Venus. The North Node is like a destiny point - it points to where one is supposed to go in this lifetime. And if one goes there, then the Universe supports you.  In Aquarius, his destiny is wrapped up in doing things 'for the people', and in the 6th house of duty. His South Node is in Leo, so in a past life he was already royalty or a leader in some respect, so he already knows how to do that. In this lifetime, he can use that talent, he can springboard it forward and use it to be there for the people.  Conjunct Venus in Aquarius, it shows that the public love him, and will continue to love him and support him. Especially women. And look at the guy - he has movie star good looks, which does not hurt his cause at all. 

He has a singleton planet in water - his Mars in Pisces. Singletons have a lot of power, simply because all the water energy has to siphon out through one planet. This makes his Mars quite powerful. It also adds a nice touch of softness to his tough chart. Mars in Pisces people care! This is a sensitive placement and shows that he cares about the plights and feelings of the people. It is also a placement of fighting for the underdog.

His Virgo rising speaks to his methodical approach and strategic planning. Yes, his chart is quite earthy, with Cap Sun, Virgo rising and Saturn at the top. Perfect for politics. And he has a nice hefty dose of idealism and passion thrown in to make him want to actually do what he says he will do - create positive change. I like his chart very much.

How does Justin connect to the chart of Canada?

Justin's Moon in Aries is right on the Ascendant of the chart of Canada! He speaks to and connects with us. His Moon is also conjunct Canada's Neptune. We glamorize him, or we connect to his sense of idealism and hope. He actually has a lot of aspects to the chart of Canada, showing that he resonates with the country.

How will Justin get along with the US gov't? Well, its very interesting that Justin's Sun-Moon midpoint is 25 Aquarius.  The US chart's Moon is 25 degrees of Aquarius. The Moon of a nation's chart denotes the people of the country. All the US presidents have significant planets at 25 Aquarius, because it shows they resonate with the people. I think this shows that the US people are really going to like Justin - a lot.  But the gov't may not. Justin's Uranus is conjunct the US's Saturn, which is their government.  They're not going to like Justin's agenda for change, which means he may not be playing ball with the criminals and bullies that are the US gov't. Thank goodness. It won't be easy for Justin Trudeau, but he is not part of the Harper/Canadian nazi/oil and gas mafia. Canada has become a close knit part of the US matrix since the early 1990s, and Justin Trudeau has a long road ahead of him to keep distancing himself from all that. But he is obviously determined, and we all want him to succeed. The US may try to sabotage that of course.  However, the charts also show that Justin can be the spark that gets the ball rolling in terms of positive change for the US as he may inspire the people of that country too.

Moonbathing - where one actually sits outside and views the moon -  helps to balance all aspects of the body. It's incredibly healing.  Just as absorbing the rays of the sun is important to the body, so is absorbing the rays of the moon.  The Sun is more action oriented, and the moon is more receptive. Moonbathing helps one to become more sensitive, more receptive, and more still. It activates 'yin', and can help to balance someone who has too much 'yang' or too much fire or anger.

 During a full moon, the body's healing potential is at its peak, and the body's energy flow is activated and harmonized. Moonbathing accentuates that. Moonbathing also stimulates the pineal gland, a tiny gland that helps to regulate the sleeping/waking cycle, as well as many other body rhythms. When we go outside to see the moon, our bodies can more easily adjust when we are physically outside in nature picking up nature's signals, and visibly seeing the moon with the naked eye.

So, get thee outside and bathe in the moon! Or, at least gaze at it through an open window.

Saturn enters Sagittarius today!

Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2013. and now leaves it for good on Sept 17th.!  Everyone was affected by this intense transit in some way, although some more than others.

We had a brief preview of Saturn moving into Sagittarius earlier this year, but then he dipped back into Scorpio for the summer, just to bring one last push to whatever it was we were working on for the last 2.5 years.

Sometimes its easier to see what something was about when we are able to get the bird's eye view and look back on it.

What happened in the fall of 2013?  You embarked on a mission of transformation, letting go or healing in some way at that time. Saturn in Scorpio demands we go deep, and we emerge healed in some way at the end of it.  Many of us lost loved ones and now we're moving on and dealing with that loss in our lives.  In effect, everyone is now moving on in a new way, with some sort of transformation and healing having taken place on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.

Saturn in Sagittarius is a much lighter energy thank goodness.  For more info on what you can expect, check my post Saturn in Sagittarius.

Sagittarian Sun, Moon and Asc people are really going to feel this transit the most, or anyone who has personal planets in Sag.

Saturn enters Sag today, and goes forward through to 16.24 degrees of Sag before he turns retrograde.  The thing with Saturn transits, is that they are in effect from the moment that they move forward toward aspecting a point in your chart. So, for example if you have your Sun at 14 degrees of Sag, guess what, you're going to feel that Saturn starting tonight!!!  Yes, Saturn is interesting that way.  Some transits you only feel when they get very close to the planet in your chart, but not Saturn.  Saturn starts from day one.  However, if you have a significant point at 17 degrees of Sag, you won't feel Saturn until later next year because he goes retrograde before he hits it.

So, for everyone Sagittarius born from  Nov 22nd to Dec 8th, you're in the midst of a Saturn transit to your Sun starting tonight.  You may even get a little symbolism tonight or tomorrow as to what this transit may mean for you - sort of like Saturn saying hello. In general, Saturn transits bring more work and we take om more responsibility - this can be when someone buys a house, or gets married or get pregnant.  It can be when we take on that big project at work that requires long hours, or when we start our own business. It can be when we need to start taking more responsibility for aging parents, or simply when we start to look toward consolidating for our future. Saturn can also show us where we need to pull back, as well as make us accountable if we've been treating others, or even ourselves, unfairly.  Saturn doesn't let anyone get away with much of anything, which is why Saturn represents authority.

Some famous Sagittarians who are going to be feeling this Saturn transit starting tonight are:

Scarlett Johansson
Britney Spears
Miley Cyrus (backlash?)
Tyra Banks
Ian Somerhalder
Julianne Moore
Amanda Seyfried
Ben Stiller
Katherine Heigl
Christina Applegate
Ed Harris
Marisa Tomei
Bette Midler
Anna Faris

As well as some Sun in Geminis who will have Saturn opposing their Sun:

Angelina Jolie
Nicole Kidman
Colin Farrell
Morgan Freeman

Jupiter in Virgo August 11, 2015 - Sept 2016

Jupiter entered a new sign this month after being in Leo for one full year. Yep, Jovial Jupiter enters the sign of Virgo on August 11th and he stays there until September of 2016.

Jupiter is the largest planet in our galaxy, which is perfect symbolism as astrologically he's also the planet that urges us to grow, to expand and to reach for the stars.  He rules higher education, the law, international travel, philosophy, not to mention just having a really good time.  He's a party animal, that one.  Everything to excess, he always says.  Growth and expansion are his thing, and not just on the mental level either. Jupiter is usually around when women get pregnant and expand on the physical level.  He's also around when people gain weight (typically when Jupiter hits the Ascendant).  For the most part, Jupiter brings opportunity and he helps us to feel confident in ourselves.

Jupiter in Virgo is a little different however, because here Jupiter wants us to expand by actually making things smaller - by streamlining procedures and cutting back on excess.  Yes, as you can probably already tell, Jupiter is not at his happiest when he's in Virgo.  Jupiter in Virgo is actually in its detriment. He can't just throw caution to the wind and expand willy-nilly. Nope. Here he has to be more refined and cautious.

Jupiter in Virgo seeks to improve things, to expand and grow by cutting back on the non-essentials. Here he's going to get rid of excess and focus on what really works. For example, Jupiter also rules publishing. So here, in Virgo, Jupiter can help someone grow and expand in the publishing world by editing and refining copy and being particular about which words to words. Virgo is a master wordsmith by the way.

Another good example is picking off the deadheads off your flowering plant. If you pinch off the faded flowers, the plant is coaxed into produced even more buds and flowers.

Jupiter in Virgo is where less really is more. Here he's not going to be the big party animal.  Here's he's going to be urging you to go the spa and to go on a juice fast and to take up pilates. He'll urge you to put down the Snickers bar and to be more particular about what you eat. Jupiter in Virgo is great for anything health-related or diet related or fitness related.  He supports you in your journey to better health - that's how he's supporting you in growing. Restaurant trends will be for healthier food, and there will be more allowance for dietary restrictions, thank goodness.

Virgo is picky and detail oriented, so Jupiter in Virgo is the time when the small picky details are going to be magnified. People are going to see the trees instead of the forest.

Jupiter's sign sets the trend for the coming year.  It shows what will be in favour, and also what industries will expand.  Business astrologers say to invest in business and industries that represent whatever sign Jupiter is transiting in, because their profits will increase.

So, what will be trendy or in favour for the coming year?  Health!  Anything to do with being as healthy as you can be. Super green smoothie drinks, even better blenders, spa packages, new and better diet tips and tricks, meditation and yoga. New and better ways to meld body, mind and spirit. Because the whole planet is waking up in consciousness, I wonder if the trend will be for people to adopt a higher vibrational diet. More plant based food, and perhaps more compassion for animals and how we treat them. Walter Palmer killing Cecil the lion and the outrage around it happened just as Jupiter entered Virgo, and it raised awareness of the collective responsibility to protect and respect all of earth's animal life.

Getting a massage is a pleasurable way to maintain good health - very Jupiter in Virgo.  And on a tropical beach is even better, as Jupiter does like to travel.

Virgo also rules craftsmanship, or anything you do with your hands. Crafts of all kinds will be a big trend, and the more skillful and detail oriented the better (Martha Stewart has Venus in crafty Virgo). Knitting, needlepoint, decoupage, or any kind of home improvement or decoration projects are all likely to be this year. Hairdressers use their hands in a skilled way, and they will have a good year, or people will want to train to be a hairdresser. Precision and skill are definitely favoured. Virgo also rules small pets, as well as vets. Perhaps adopting pets from the SPCA will be an even stronger movement than it is right now.

As far as fashion goes, Virgo looks tends to be more on the conservative side. It may bring back the 'buttoned up' look.  It can still be very sexy...think of tall laced up boots. Or blouses with a zillion little tiny buttons on it.  There will be lots of detail and exquisite designs. Understated elegance is the trend here, such as Gwyneth Paltrow or Jennifer Aniston or Audrey Hepburn or Chanel. Nothing too showy or dramatic or colourful. It's more about subtlety, like a super expensive watch or amazing bag. There will be clean lines and elegant simplicity. Expect to see even smaller, yet even more amazing and adaptable versions of tablets and phones and electronic gadgets. We may see more smart cars, or minis. More fuel efficient and smaller cars.

Virgos are going to be having a great year as Jupiter comes up to conjunct their Sun. All earth signs will too, as Jupiter trines their Sun,

So, in general, look to see where you can grow by cutting back or refining or better defining techniques. You have celestial permission to simplify your life! That's the trend for the coming year and you will be celestially supported in doing so, and in fact great gains, rewards and growth will occur because of it.

Have you been seeing 11:11 a lot lately?


Are you seeing a lot of 11's?  Or especially 11:11? I sure have. I was reading a book I got from the library and found the due date slip inside the front cover, and it read Aug 11, at 11:11 am.  I happened to glance at the clock and it was 11:11 pm.  Hmmm.  This has been happening a lot lately, so I queried an expert on the matter. Apparently this is a phenomenom that is taking the world by storm she said.

11:11 represents the awakening of consciousness on the planet.  It's also called' The Shift'. Many awakened scientists confirm that the Earth, and of course humanity, is being bombarded by Galactic Waves of Love.  These are really electromagnetic waves coming from the centre of the Galaxy that are very high in frequency and that have been hitting the planet in waves for the last few years, awakening us to what is really going on in the world (history is not what you think it is), and also supporting each and every human to rise in consciousness.  These waves are increasing in intensity, and will really be intense this September. This involves the releasing of karma....which means the actual physical and emotional releasing of lifetimes of pain and hurt. As you can imagine, this is not the most comfortable process, yet it is necessary to evolve.  The human race and Gaia (the earth) is evolving and ascending into a new dimension.  We've been living in the third dimension for about 26,000 years, and now, right on cue astrologically, we are now in the throes of ascending into the 5th dimension.  Throughout history this new era we've been looking forward to has been called 'The Golden Age'.  David Wilcock's book The Synchronicity Key:  describes the 26,000 year cycle quite well.  Guess what - we're at the very end of that cycle. This is when the Age of Aquarius is really beginning. Every human on the planet is shifting on every single level - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Whenever you see 11:11, a portal for manifestation is open at that exact moment. This is when you're totally dialed in to the Universe. Pay attention to what's going on at that moment, or what you're thinking about at that moment, because your thoughts at that moment have a strong Universal support to manifest.  It's actually a fantastic time to make a wish - what do you want to manifest!  It's like you're tapped into the centre of the source - its a huge Synchronistic happening and you're part of it.

Jennifer Aniston Marries Justin Theroux - a chart comparison

Jennifer Aniston married Justin Theroux  Wednesday afternoon August 5th, 2015!

Let's look at these charts and then compare them and see what kind of long-term compatibility they have between them.

The third chart is bi-wheel, with Jennifer's chart in the middle, and Justin's chart on the outside. This makes it much easier to see where and how their planets aspect each other.

Jennifer has Venus and Saturn together in Aries in her 7th house. This speaks to challenges in relationships throughout her life, and in fact is one of her karmic lessons. Hers are 12 degrees apart, but I think its strong enough to say they're conjunct, so I will. I wrote a whole post about people who have this aspect. You can read it here. Typically Venus Saturn women tend to marry later in life, or have problems finding the right one. There are usually feelings about not feeling good enough, or deserving, or they feel like they need to 'earn' love.  Often these women make a career (Saturn) from their looks (Venus). Many successful models have this aspect I've found.

First off,  I notice that Justin's Moon in Aries is in Jennifer's 7th house of relationships, so right away she feels comfortable with him.  We tend to feel drawn to those people who have planets in our 7th house. His Moon in Aries is conjunct her North Node (destiny point), as well as her Venus. This is a lovely aspect to have, as she exemplifies what he is looking for emotionally.  Even more importantly, they have the number one aspect of successful marriage (according to the Magi astrologers), which is his Chiron conjunct her Venus.  This is a very strong bond, as the Chiron person, in this case Justin, feels like Jennifer is a soothing balm to his soul. Somehow he feels healed in her presence. (By the way, JLo has this aspect with Casper Smart, which may be why she feels so strongly drawn to him).

On top of that, Justin has Sun and Venus in Leo, which nicely trines her Aries planets in her 7th house. They both have Venus in fire, which shows that they share the same interests and they can get along in a harmonious way. People who have Venus' in different elements or in harsh aspect don't always have a lot in common and they often end up doing many things apart from each other.

His Sun in Leo trines her Saturn, which is a lovely aspect of commitment and longevity. Saturn is the cement that holds people together, for better or for worse, so you need to have aspects with Saturn if you want a long-term relationship.

His Jupiter on her Mars says he inspires her to move forward and to take action, whilst she helps him to to feel supported and inspires him to grow and move onward and upward.  His Mars on her Sun shows that he finds he quite sexy and desirable.

Their individual Mars' are not in harmony though, as his Mars in Aquarius squares her Mars and Neptune in Scorpio. Justin has a Sun Mars opposition natally, and it T-squares to her Mars.  That's a lot of energy to deal with, and it can be passion and excitement on one hand, but also arguments and conflicts on the other.  I bet they have some very heated arguments!  Mars square Mars can be a deal breaker in relationships when it gets activated by a heavy transit. Mars square Mars can be all about competing egos...who's gonna win? Positively they can push each other on to greater things, but negatively it can be an all out war. I'd be very watchful in 7 years when Uranus comes up to trigger their Mars square. Plus, the 7 year itch is a real thing by the way - 7 years is when Saturn in the sky squares the Saturn in the wedding chart.  Saturn squares itself every 7 years, which is why so many couples go through trauma at the 7 year mark.

Mars in Scorpio (Jennifer) is passionate and intense, and can be quite jealous and territorial, depending on the person of course. You don't mess with a Mars in Scorpio person. Mars in Scorpio need to be in control, and they don't like to be too overt about it, as Scorpio is a very secretive sign. I've seen this combination in action. They often hold back the whole truth, or will just say what they need to say to ensure the outcome they want. They are expert, expert manipulators. I know one person with this who is the most expert manipulator of people I've ever seen in my whole life. Add in Neptune, which can be quite deceptive, and you've got a double whammy for passive aggressive behaviour. This aspect can lead someone to play the victim as a means of control. As always, this completely depends on how conscious and self aware the individual is of course, but for sure there will be tendencies towards it, and more enlightened types will have learned how to channel that energy in a different way. My take is that she's not there yet. I think she has controlled the media in such a way that she is perpetually seen as 'the victim' in the whole Brangelina triangle. People forget that she started seeing Justin while he was still living with his then-girlfriend Heidi Bivens. You can read more about that here Celebitchy.

PLUS, she has has Pluto square her Moon.  Yep, another aspect speaking to issues around control and trust. Pluto Moon people don't trust you out of the gate and it takes a lot for them to let you into their circle. Pluto Moon like to control the outcomes of things, so this adds even more oomph to the control issues of her Mars in Scorpio position. Jennifer is also known for being very controlling of her image.  Justin's Pluto squares her Moon as well, making for some intense control issues between them. People with strong Pluto tend to be very charismatic and magnetic in general, which makes them winners in the Hollywood realm.

On the positive side, that Mars Neptune makes her very photogenic and glamorous, as does her Sun square Neptune. Most successful actors have strong Neptune, which allows them to blur their boundaries and actually morph into different characters.  Because of this ability/yearning to lose their boundaries, strong Neptune can also make one more disposed to escapism through drugs and alcohol, which we've seen a lot in Hollywood. Jennifer is known for loving her wine (don't we all!) as well as her pot. I wrote a post about this here
Neptune and Artistry in Hollywood

Jennifer natally has Uranus opposing her Venus. She also has Uranus rising, and she is an Aquarius, so we can safely say that she is a 'Uranian' type.  Uranian types have powerful needs for independence and autonomy. With her Venus and Saturn in the 7th house she has strong needs for a committed relationship too,  yet she fears it as well, and that independent Uranus fights it tooth and nail. Venus oppose Uranus is like a push-pull in the love department. It's hard to satisfy both sides. Justin's Uranus happens to be close to the same degree as Jennifer's Uranus, so he basically triggers that dilemma inside of her. His Uranus opposes her Venus, which is usually a very hard aspect to navigate in a relationship. It tends to be a deal breaker for most people. The best way to deal with it is to allow each other to have a lot of space. It works well if one person works out of town a lot, or if there are frequent breaks. It does not work well between people who want a quiet, cozy routine home environment.  But then again, they work in Hollywood where they go to set for months at a time. Maybe this could work for them.  Maybe.

Jennifer also has her Moon in freedom loving Sagittarius.  Are you starting to see a theme here? She has issues about freedom and space and its hard for her to be tied down, despite what she says. People say that it was Brad that left her, but when someone has freedom/commitment issues, it doesn't matter who leaves who. Often the person who has freedom issues commits to someone who they know on a deeper unconscious level is not the right one, so they know they can 'escape' at some point.

His Moon is conjunct her North Node, and her Sun is conjunct his North Node. This speaks strongly to a past life involvement, as well as a strong support for them growing together in this lifetime.

Overall I'd say they have just as many positives as they do negatives, but I do wonder how that Uranus Venus aspect is going to manifest, as well as all that harsh Mars energy. I wish then well and I'm sure we'll see how this plays out in the media.

The astounding astrological symbolism in Vancouver (and other cities)

If you take most of the major historic and geographic points of interest in Vancouver, including Queen Elizabeth Park, the Burrard Street Bridge, Vancouver Lookout, Christ Church Cathedral, The Masonic Building, Science World, Olympic Village, Sun Tower, Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge, City Hall etc...and you pinpoint them all on a map, then you get this.

                                                 Image from

They create a circle divided into 36 equally spaced lines, all equidistant from one constant centre point - the Masonic Building.

The Ancient Egyptians recognized 36 constellations. They divided the year into 36 decans.  We still use decans, so each astrological sign has 3 decans in it.  So, each 3 lines on this map corresponds to one astrological sign.  It's really just a big astrological zodiac circle, much like you would read an astrological chart.

One of the 36 lines goes to the HR Macmillian Space centre, which has a Crab at the entrance, which of course symbolizes the sign of Cancer.

From there, you can go around the 'chart' and see what locations corresponds to what signs on this map. If Cancer is at that location, then The Sun Tower, which also lies at the end of another those 36 equidistant lines, but a little more north, would represent Taurus. The Sun Tower has an obelisk right in front of it in Victory Square, with the sign of Taurus right on the front of it.

The sign of Sagittarius on this map corresponds directly to the airport, and of course Sagittarius rules travel.  The sign of Scorpio corresponds to Iona Island and the sewage treatment plant, which is very Scorpionic indeed. Capricorn which rules ambition and career and prestige corresponds to the richest area in Vancouver called The Crescent in Shaugnessy area.   It's fascinating stuff.  One could go around find correlations for the whole zodiac this way. I'd like to go out to all of these places and see if there are any actual astrological and zodiacal symbols in the area.

The distance from the Masonic Building to the Lions at Lions Gate Bridge is 3.333 miles. In East Van there is a big famous Neon Cross. The distance from that to the Celtic Cross in Stanley Park is 3.033 miles, to the Vancouver Lookout is 3.33 miles, and to the obelisk in Victory Square 3.033 miles.  Distance from Masonic Centre to Queen Elizabeth Park is 3333 m. QE Park, which is the highest point in the city, aligns directly over 33rd Ave. There's a very precise astrological and mathematical grid in place in this city, as well as grids in TorontoNew YorkDenver and Phoenix.

Gold and Silver and the Economy fall/winter of 2015

I wrote a post last year about what to expect with the prices of Gold and Silver in 2014-2015 and how the market responds to the Jupiter Saturn cycle when it comes to stocks and precious metals. You can read it here.  We were hoping that Gold would rise in price as Jupiter entered Leo and was helped by that Uranus in Aries.  Unfortunately that Saturn dipping back into Scorpio in June has kept the lid on things regarding price. I think that Saturn also represents all the corrupt banksters that continue to manipulate the price of gold and silver. Pretty much everyone now knows that the markets are rigged, thanks to the internet. Saturn dipped back into Scorpio in June of 2015 and will leave Scorpio for good in mid-September 2015.  

This continued depression of gold prices is validated by Mike Maloney's short video that came out today. It's a must-see if you're interested in where the price of gold and silver is going. He says, and has always said, that there will be a depressionary plunge in the value of gold before it takes off and goes sky high. Which is really what is happening now.

Saturn leaves Scorpio in mid-September, which takes the pressure off of the sign of Leo (gold). 

There's another reason Gold and Silver could move up later this year, and that's because the economy and the stock market could tumble with the Saturn Neptune square (precious metals are the first place people go to invest when the economy/market gets scary).  

This fall, Saturn moves into Sagittarius and then is immediately within orb of squaring Neptune.  It squares it exactly in mid-November 2015. At the same time, Jupiter has moved into Virgo, and squares that Saturn by sign. These are double whammy indicators of a shaky economic market.

Now, as Mike Maloney has pointed out in his video, what has happened historically and what is likely to happen again, is that the price of precious metals will fall with the depressed stock market at the beginning, but then there will be a divergence. All of a sudden the price of gold and silver will start to move up quite quickly. I've given up on timing this really, since there are so many factors in play.

If you've been doing your own research, then you know the stock market is way overdue for a huge correction.  All bubbles pop, as is the nature of bubbles. Its just a matter of when.

Proof that your Thoughts Influence your Reality - the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto

Dr. Masaru Emoto was a Japanese Scientist who worked with water and water crystals and studied the effects that different water crystals had on the body.

He would freeze water, and then examine the frozen water crystals under a microscope. What he found was extraordinary.  He found that the water crystals that were frozen from water that had been exposed to loving and kind thoughts or words, took on beautiful symmetrical shapes.  Water that was exposed to unkind or rude thoughts or words created ugly, asymmetrical and broken shapes.

Water exposed to the words 'love and gratitude' looked like this:

Water exposed to the word 'appreciation' looked like this:

He also found that water exposed to beautiful classical music exhibited beautiful symmetrical patterns, but water exposed to heavy metal music became misshapen and ugly and broken.  He also collected samples of water from different parts of the world.  Below is a sample of the water crystals from the toxic water from Fujiwara Dam.  And beside it is the beautiful symmetrical crystal that was created after prayer over the water for one hour.

Dr. Emoto did the famous rice experiment where he had 2 containers of rice. On one he wrote 'you fool', and on the other he wrote 'thank you.' He than instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud everyday when they passed them by.  After 30 days the rice in the container with positive thoughts had barely changed, while the other was moldy and rotten.

You can do these experiments yourself with any kind of food and see what happens.

The human body is 97% water, so you can imagine what will happen if the human body is subjected to less-than -loving thoughts and words, and what miracles can also happen when the body is exposed to loving and kind thoughts.  He found that drinking water that has been exposed to loving and kind thoughts has the power to heal.  The words that carried the strongest positive energy he found were 'love and appreciation', as well as 'gratitude;.

He then went on to figure out exactly which kinds of music healed which kinds of ailments.  I have his book called 'Water Crystal Healing'.  In it he has two CDs of beautiful well-known classical songs, and with each song he shows the image of the actual crystal that is formed from the song music, as well as what physical maladies it cures. For example, the song La Mer by Claude Debussy gives relief from depression and motivation to move forward, as well as improving immune function.  It's beautiful to listen to.  Or, Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky gives relief from rigidity and obsession as well as smoother joint movement.  Fascinating stuff.

I write the words 'love and appreciation' on my glass water bottles and then drink the water from them, knowing that my body is receiving the benefits from all the loving and kind crystals inherent in the water.

So, remember to say kind and loving things to yourself.  It does a body good!

Here's a few of Emoto's most popular books:
