 Moon (Osupa / Yemoja),Sun (Orun / Orunmila, Olofi), Mercury (Esu-Elegbara), Jupiter (Obatala), Saturn (Obaluaiye), Neptune (Olokun), Uranus (Sango), and Venus (Oshun).
 Themes: 
Family, personal values, personal self-worth, loss and gains. Creative inspirations, freedom vs confinement, temptations, and stubbornness.
Welcome to the Taurus new moon! This moon portends a specific time for our consciousness to express strong desires for freedom, self-assuredness which can become stubbornness if not careful. We’ll be confronting many forms of temptations because the Taurus (earthy expression) is about our environment both physical and emotional and what those aspects of ourselves desire or feel secure. Hence, we on a collective level will be observing and discerning if our personal space is secure or perhaps we’re indeed trapped, closed in like a Bull. Only to be “let out” at the leisure of someone else’s pleasure or we’re subservient to some type of addiction. The 12th house, the house of solitude and confinement accentuates this energy field of being enclosed, being removed from the day-to-day realities of life. Like a patient who only watches TV not socializing; are we protecting ourselves from something or avoiding what’s really going on around us? Are we the Bull who eats by someone else’s diet plan and standards in a small stall instead of grazing on its own in a wider open space? This new moon time encourages our collective consciousness to identify how free or trapped we are and if anything, what can or should be done about it? This moon marks a time of ”boundaries.”

Welcome to the Libra-Oshun Full Moon of April, ruler of house 7 and archetype of Orisa Oshun and planet Venus. This Libra Full Moon resides in house 9, the house of higher law, and learning. This moon will alert our collective consciousness to express a need for personal, spiritual, and emotional clearing and cleansing, and to bring into existence both balance and harmony… This moon time will release more of our stored up hostilities… If we are mindful of the duality in nature of this Libra moon, both disruptive, and harmonizing we can decide how best we would like to work with these lunar vibrations…
This is our time to set boundaries and to honor the laws that govern those boundaries. This is that moon time which requires us to re-affirm our personal or group’s authority, to regain confidence, and self-worth.

Venus Я in Pisces squaring Saturn Я Apr.-Aug. 2017

Written by Iya Olusoga – Bisi Ade

For The Astrorisa Moon Forecaster

XAPANA

Obaluaiye’s planet, Saturn will officially go retrograde April 6, 2017 at 27° in the sign of Sagittarius in house 1. Saturn will later station direct on August 25, 2017 at 21° Sagittarius.

Saturn is the “Lord of Karma” and Obaluaiye, offers the experience of ‘’ we reap what we sow.” The Ancestors/ Egungun identified the overall theme of 2017 as “The Year of the Reckoning.” This is telling, because it means that the dirty, dastardly, deeds which we’ve gotten away with for many years, catches up with us during the ‘Year of the Reckoning.’

The last decade Saturn went retrograde in Sagittarius was Thursday, March 7 1985, 08:04 AM ET; 1 month (+) 1 day (-), and 32 years ago.

Saturn retrograde governs our experiences surrounding maturity, health, self-discipline, responsibility, our fears, loneliness, and anxieties. Saturn retrograde creates a type ‘forced’ isolation. We are ‘forced’ to re-address aspects and elements about our core being which has been a hindrance to our development and growth. This is when we’re thrown into the ‘lion’s den’ so it may feel or seem. We are exposed to the elements of chaos, we face redemption, or ridicule. We come face to face with our own fears and realizations of internal truths, and then we work hard to climb out of the pit. Through the act of ‘climbing out’ of our pits, we develop the psychological and emotional muscle to endure, then to sprint, moving forward in a new direction

Currently Venus Я in Pisces squares Saturn Я. What we’ve previously enjoyed, felt comfortable doing, or admired either becomes exposed, becomes lost, or experiences a sour note. Whatever Venus ruled in our lives; if we were undisciplined in its specific area Saturn, will assist us to gain sight of it, and then judge it.

During this Venus Я in Pisces squaring Saturn Я transit

Be mindful if you feel depressed, or unworthy. These are suppressed emotions which require your attention, and or release.

Think back to 1985 through 1988 when Saturn was in Sagittarius.

What did you lose then gain?

What did you experience which offered a clear lesson?

Did you master the knowledge of that lesson or is it up for a repeat?

Mercury Retrograde April 2017 ~ Angry Damsels by Darkstar Astrology

The 2nd Mercury Retrograde 2017 lasts from April 9 to May 3 and travels from 4º Taurus back to 24° Aries. Even though Mercury retrograde starts in the beginning of Taurus, the whole retrograde period has a fiery Aries theme as Mercury will spend half the period in Aries and will ignite heroic themes of courage and rescue. This is because the major star being activated will the ‘damsel in distress’ star Mirach in princess Andromeda’s girdle.

Perseus, rescuer of the princess is an Aries archetype in that he is heroic and brave. In the Greek myth Andromeda’s father agreed to sacrifice his daughter to Poseidon in order to save his kingdom. (What is it with these Neptunian gods always demanding child sacrifice?!) It looks like this Mercury Retrograde will start off extremely challenging with Venus retrograde square Saturn. Saturn is on a poisonous star too. Etamin in the right eye of Draco the Dragon is associated with the scattering of poison. (In modern days this could even be chemical weapons.)

Damsels In Distress

If that wasn’t enough, there is a cardinal T-square with Jupiter retrograde (Religious zealots) square Pluto (Globalists) square a Sun/Eris/Uranus stellium. (Persephone child abduction theme overlaps child sacrifice theme.). Mars is conjunct Ceres (The rape of mother earth and pagan principles.) in a decan hotspot that contains stars Algol (Medusa’s head) and Capulus the slayer.

When this Andromeda Mercury goes retrograde then, we have an opportunity to do in-depth research in this very volatile area that it travels through. Facing the disturbing topics of child sacrifice and abduction is unavoidable. All news and alternative media will become super-dramatic, and the themes mentioned in this post should play out, whether they are truthful or not! Mercury is one of three visible planets that are retrograde at this time which makes it even more challenging. (At least until Venus turns direct on April 15.).


Mercury Retrograde April Dates & Times

March 27 ~ Mercury Pre-Shadow Period starts at 24° Aries.
April 9 ~ Mercury Retrograde at 4° Taurus.(11.14 pm UT.)
May 3 ~ Mercury Direct at 24° Aries. (4.22 pm UT.)
May 19 ~ Post-Shadow ends at 4° Taurus


April 9 to 19 ~ Mercury Retrograde 2017 In Taurus Decan 1

RAGING BULLS. In the personal realm, those touched by this retrograde will either talk until the cows come home or be very reticent. Much depends on how confident they are feeling. The shy ones might become surprisingly chatty after a few glasses of wine. Words could get them into trouble.. a lot. Mercury in this decan create terrible gossip, and bring out tactless behavior. There are rousing speeches however, but a need to temper getting carried away. Overconfidence leads to moving towards Taurus decan 1’s dictatorship potentials. It will be hard to contain political rants and protests. Having said all that, Mercury is very powerful here in terms of its dignity as it rules this decan in the Chaldean system. This position, even retrograde, can assist merchants, orators, singers and writers. Use this time to prepare for an important business meeting, interview or public performance.

Apr 19/20 ~ Sun conjunct Mercury at 0º Taurus on Mirach

Mercury Retrograde 2017Midway through the Mercury retrograde 2017 cycle opens a window of wonderfulness where we can stand in the eye of the hurricane but miraculously come out in one piece. This way you can avoid the vacillation generally of Mirach but also gain its more positive attributes mentioned below. You can make use of the special Sun exact conjunct Mercury moment (Cazimi in traditional astrology). Either send a romantic message that really hits the mark or pitch an artistic idea. Try as close to these times as you can. Apr 19: 11.03pm PDT. Apr 20: 2.00am EDT, 7.03am UT, 8.03am CEST, 4.03pm AEST. (Sorry I know they are quite impractical for those in the US, Cazimi lasts about 3 hours either side of the hour.)

Mirach 0º with Mercury “Vacillating, unstable, peculiar events, many travels and changes.” 

Mirach is found in the girdle of Andromeda. Despite the ‘peculiar events’ driven by Mercury on this star, it is generally extremely fortunate “portending renown and good luck in matrimony.” [1] The myth has Princess Andromeda chained to a rock as a sacrifice to Cepheus the sea monster. All to appease an offended Neptune! It all ends well however, as Andromeda was rescued by brave Perseus whom she married. Robson echoes the myth saying Mirach “gives personal beauty, a brilliant mind, a love of home, great devotion, beneficence, forgiveness, love, overcoming by kindness, renown, and good fortune in marriage.” The Ebertins emphasize a creative side saying Mirach endows “Many interests, tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creations, altruism, cheerfulness, happiness, love of company. These people have a stimulating effect on others, they make friends easily and are helped on in life by others.” [2]

April 21 to May 3 ~ Mercury In Aries Decan 3

BOUNTY HUNTERS: Small words make big impressions during this time! Those touched by this part of the retrograde journey are aided in oratory and giving a persuasive sales pitch. The mind will be brilliant too in a way that weaves many different ideas into one cohesive ideology. Mercury has no dignity here so the gift during this time is its power of persuasion, rather than innate genius. However those with genuine talent will have the ability to transmit their message with great emotional punch. This almost guarantees that their ideology or products will reach a large audience. Mercury Aries 3 can be as seductive as it is highly critical. At its most negative it can inflict emotional abuse on others in the form of mental cruelty. Verbal attacks can feel like one is being machine-gunned with words. On the positive side Mercury here can use words to heal and uplift also. You can use this period to sweet-talk lovers with the most heartwarming poetry. Words are a big turn on!

May 3 ~ Mercury Direct

Mercury direct is a far more positive chart! The Yod to Jupiter is interesting in that it could be used for positive, spiritual transformation. The Sun/Neptune midpoint between an earthy Taurus the moisture of Pisces could bring some healing… mud. Mercury itself joins hands with rebellious, independent Uranus to bring, freedom of speech? With ever increasing censorship on alternative media we can only hope.

There is a nice balance from Saturn by trine to this Mercury direct. What was Saturn’s Draco poison in the Mercury Retrograde chart could be made into anti-venom perhaps? During this Aries/Taurus Mercury Retrograde we learn how transmute offensive words and turn their energy around for defense, much like in martial arts.

Law of Polarity ~ Amy Brucker

By Amy Brucker

LawOfPolaritySymbolicMeaning4

Have you ever had a desire for something, like an income or career breakthrough, but instead of moving forward you ended up feeling stuck in a never ending loop?

And no matter what you did, you couldn’t make the shift, so you lost hope and gave up?

If so, I have something fun to share with you.

It’s called the Law of Polarity.

This is one of many universal laws that were inspired by simple observations of nature, and it just happens to be my favorite.

I discovered the Law of Polarity years ago when I was struggling financially and desperate to figure out why. I was doing everything imaginable to create a successful business, but nothing helped.

Desperate to figure out why, I did a shamanic journey to uncover the source of my stuckness, and every time I did a journey, I got the same response:

I’d see an aerial view of myself standing in a field looking at a wasteland of dry, broken earth, but directly behind me, so close my feet were touching it, was a beautiful, lush green field.

Clearly, I was being shown that I was simply focused in the wrong direction.

How the Law of Polarity Can Help You Move Forward

The Law of Polarity shows us that everything that is whole is comprised of polar opposites and shades of grey in between.

The Equinox is a great example. It’s a 24-hour period during which we have half light and half dark, and it perfectly illustrates that we cannot experience one without the other.

You can’t have light without dark.

Or day without night.

Good without bad.

Up without down.

Sickness without health.

Problem without solution.

And the ultimate reason I love the Law of Polarity…

You can’t have an unexpressed desire without expressed desire.

You can’t have a want without having a possible fulfillment of that want.

In other words, if you are poor and you desire wealth, your poverty is the unexpressed or unmanifested version of money. Using the Law of Polarity, we can deduce that there has to be a manifested version of your desire as well, which is wealth. Money is comprised of poverty and wealth, and everything in between, at the same time. Which means that money exists and therefore, there is a way for you to cultivate more money, because wealth exists.

However…

The Law of Polarity Doesn’t Guarantee HOW Your Desire Will Show Up

To use another example, if you want to have a baby, but no longer have a uterus, it will be darn near impossible for you to give birth naturally. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a baby. There are many alternative options. You can adopt, have someone else carry a baby for you, become a foster parent. Or you can become a daycare provider.

In the Law of Polarity, the “how” is not guaranteed, but when you have a desire for something, there is always a way to fulfill that desire. It just might not look like how you imagined. (So don’t be attached to *how* it might work out.)

Moving Forward with the Law of Polarity

The reason I love the Law of Polarity so much is because I used to lose hope easily. If something I desired with all my heart–like making money doing what I loved to do–seemed like it wasn’t working out, I’d give up.

But after the shamanic journey in which I saw myself standing on the edge between deprivation and abundance, I realized that where I put my focus was directly related to what I was able to create in my life.

I had a habit of focusing on lack and so I was experiencing lack in my life. I saw lack everywhere I looked, and that’s what I experiences.

Yet all I had to do to turn my money situation around was to shift my perspective and see that money and opportunity were every where. Money didn’t suddenly fall from the sky, of course, but once I started focusing on wealth, I automatically started noticing things I hadn’t noticed before. I attracted the right business coach. I felt inspired. Hopeful. And my money situation changed dramatically, for the better, almost over night.

Your Turn

Reflect on your health, wealth, life, or love (relationships) and notice where you feel less than satisfied.

What did you give up on or say “no” to that caused you to feel this dissatisfaction?

How might you use the Law of Polarity to inspire you to move forward?

Now hold that vision in your mind and follow the leads as they show up. They will take you where you want to go. It may happen overnight. It may take years. But it will happen, I promise.

Sweet dreaming,

Amy

Stop “Pushing” Your Life into Being – Amy Brucker

You know the Greek demigod Atlas? He’s the one who was condemned to carry the heavens on his shoulders for all of eternity.

Do you ever feel like that?

Like you have to carry the weight of the Universe on your shoulders or all hell will break lose?

That if you don’t single-handedly do the housework, cook dinner, pay the bills, rein in your kids (or your partner, or your clients), or whatever your version of this is, that it simply will not get done?

And that you have to say yes to every invitation, because on some level it sounds like fun, because you don’t want to miss out, or because you feel obligated?

So instead of feeling a sense of ease, you push your way through your day, pushing to move forward, pushing to get things done.

But you don’t just push things into place. You also push aside the things you really, really want to do.

And then after weeks go by, or maybe years, you suddenly realize, “WAIT! I’m now in my 40s or 50s or 60s (give or take a decade) and I haven’t done that thing I really, really want to do!” (Had a baby, written a book, started a business.)

And you feel like it’s too late.

But you hope it isn’t.

Because even though you’ve shoved your secret desire into the corner while you’ve waited for that elusive day when all of the drama and dishes and metaphoric diapers are finished, you still really, really want to do that thing you feel called to do.

But the overwhelm…

The full schedule…

The…

Many women feel like this. (And if you don’t, share your secret with us here.)

The 13th Moon – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Monthly Lunar Work-Study with Phoenix of Elder Mountain –

Welcome to the 13th Moon which ends our seasonal year Spiritual Dreamers, Moon People, Healers, Artists, Mystics and Magical Folk. Over the decades I have learned and practiced so much within the healing and spiritual realms of the emotional body, the soul bodies, the dreaming bodies, and the projection and irritations of emotional reality. Seeing, feeling and responding to this very natural seasonal process of lunation cycles within that, lead me to learn, then respect and lastly respond with great dedication of each new moon.

We begin our 13th moon of the year, in the sign of Pisces, starting Sunday, February 26, 2017 at 6:58 am PST at 80 – along with the Solar Eclipse who heralds in the seasonal shift. I generally ask all of you to begin to notice and pay attention to your signs and synchronicity 2-3 days before the new moon and your nights dreaming. These gives you an indication of the personal flavor and setting of the stage of your whole moon cycle you will walk …

“The year about to end and it is like a Snake
   creeping in a field. You have no sooner
seen it,
than it has already half disappeared.
   It is gone and it’s troubles have gone with it.
   It could be worse if you catch it by its tail,
   why bother to try – when it will do you no good.”

Astrorisa Mini Moon Blast – February Pisces New Moon 2017

Written by Iya Olusoga ~ Bisi Ade For Astrorisa Moon Forecaster
February 26, 2017
Solar Eclipse
Pisces New Moon 8° at 9:59 AM EST 
in House 11
Pisces Sun 8°, in House 11
 

Planetary Energies
 Moon (Osupa / Yemoja), Sun (Orun), Mercury (Esu-Elegbara), Mars (Ogun), Saturn (Obaluaiye), Uranus (Sango), Pluto (Oya), and Neptune (Olokun).
Pisces 8° the archetype of Olokun:
This degree encourages and supports one reaching their goals, dream, and desires. This is a quiet, reflective vibration, it is very spiritually keen, yet challenges us to complete the work of  those things we don’t necessarily care for. What one should be mindful of with this degree, is to avoid getting emotionally lost in our desires and our success. One must balance their heart and head.
The influence of this solar eclipse energy can last approximately 3 months or more.
 
 
New Moon Themes: 
 
Security, New Experiences, Perseverance, Careful planning, Financial Gains and Desires, Unexpected Gains. Harmony, Family, Emotional and Spiritual development, Relationships, Contracts, Moderation, and Balance. Arguments, Disputes, Health, Illness, and Recovery.
New Moon in Pisces, an annular Solar Eclipse, brings many forms of changes and transformations. It heightens the feelings of determination in the areas of self care, self love, financial independence, and it brings an attention to detail regarding one’s health. A high octave Piscean moon, brings family and loved ones together. There’s a desire to connect and to serve, but service operates from the 11th house. And that service concentrates on the greater good of all who are involved. So when we are operating from a Piscean 8 degree in 11th house influenced emotion, we’re helping one individual clearly knowing that when they get stronger, then they are able to help others… The feminine energy of Olokun (Pisces) rules this moon time. It’s the Ancient Mother influence speaking to and through our collective consciousness, causing us to step back and to rethink how  we’ve been handling our lives, goals, and desires. We can more effectively intuit and sense what is better for us now. Some of us will be able to move out of our heads, to be less cerebral, and connect to the basic foundations of things. Becoming more grounded during this moon occurs because Neptune, Olokun’s planet is now in its pre-retrograde shadow time. So what was murky and eluded us, begins to get covered, 2 negatives creating  a positive.
Have a Universally Loved, and Self Honoring New Moon Time!

New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Pisces on 2-26-2017, Impressions

Jupiter is the defining element of the New Moon eclipse in Pisces. Chatter has already started up about the ugly T-square forming among the malefics, the conjunction of Mars and Uranus hitting off aspects to the big baddies, Saturn and Pluto. The god of war, action oriented Mars in his home field of Aries makes him trigger happy, looking to expend his martial energy and fulfil his purpose.

If you’re like me and Mars owns a good portion of your personal planets, you’ll feel Mars tension and for many, it will manifest in argument and schisms between people fighting to get their way and to satisfy their desires — often at the expense of others. If Mars is subtle for you, you might find yourself full of nervous tension, but most of all, with Pluto in the mix, the physical self frustrates if it cannot find a way to release this energy. Hit the gym, go a few rounds with someone you trust, but most of all, stay in controlled environments where even if something unexpected should occur, you are surrounded by support systems or preparations that will help you weather unfortunate surprises. So if you do go to the gym — make sure there’s a first aid kit with you and you’ve got your boxing gloves laced up right.

What makes Jupiter so key in this eclipse is dependent upon a series of aspects. Not only does Jupiter conjunct with fixed star Spica, but as in the last lunar eclipse, Jupiter is lurching backwards into retrograde. Given the stellium in foggy Pisces where Mercury, Sun, Moon, and Neptune are thrown together, now might be a time when you discover the friends and contacts that you’ve accrued under Jupiter’s expansive influence in Libra are not the people you thought they were — either you fooled yourself about their true nature, or they concealed who they really are. Now might not be the right time to address those issues, however, with Mercury unable to operate with any fundamental clarity in the Neptunian house, and with the harsh aspects occurring between Pluto, Mars/Uranus, and Saturn.

Case in point, I had a dear friend approach me with a problem she has ongoing with a close friend of her own. She discovered this friend of hers had been concealing information from her in and effort to present themselves in a better light, and now she is unsure whether she wants to continue a friendship with this person. The concern is that this person is hot-headed and may react inappropriately if she abandons the friendship, even though they are in the wrong. Sometimes, no matter how right we are, how good our intentions, we should take the time to weigh the possible consequences of our choices. As satisfying as it would be for her to simply cut off her friendship and be done with the confusion and difficulty this false friend presented, sometimes our best course of action is simply to offer neither resistance nor help, but let others choose their own paths without our interference. Taking time away from problem-people and simply withdrawing is a passive strategy that is also, often, a healing one — time reveals yet more things we did not know, and problems that we were upset about before, suddenly unravel themselves while we were busy doing something else. The problems dissipates, and leaves us lighter than when we started.

As an old saying goes — don’t invite trouble to your door, because trouble already knows where you live. This would be a good thing to keep in mind if you find yourself faced with conflicts that you would ordinarily dive into this eclipse period. Take a deep breath and consider dealing with problems in new ways. When faced with a tide, it is pointless to swim against it — consider swimming with it until it ebbs and you can find your feet again and take new direction, instead of exhausting yourself in the struggle.

Saturn and Pluto are in play. Here is where, though it is not immediately obvious that Jupiter is the major player of this chart, as much of the bluster online is being made over the malefics — which are certainly alarming in their own right — Jupiter makes his presence known through rulership and a chain of dispositors.

Pluto moving through Capricorn is giving momentum to Saturn by rulership, as earthy and conscientious Capricorn is owned by disciplinarian Saturn; and Saturn, of course, is in Jupiter’s house of lucky, expansive Sagittarius, meaning that Saturn, already spurred by Plutonian energy from Capricorn, is filtering this turbo-charged force all the way to Jupiter, by rulership. And Jupiter wants bigger, better, faster, more! Is it like a fountain, where several trickles from the top are running down to form a flood at the bottom, where Jupiter is collecting all this potential force from the other planets.

We can follow the breadcrumbs of this chain of dispositors further if we wish, when we realize that if Jupiter is in Libra, that sign of relationships and equality, than where oh where is the ruler of Libra, Venus?

Venus can be found in Aries — also in opposition to Jupiter in Libra!

The goddess of love, rich in gifts of seduction and flattery, may be telling us something about the nature of our relationships and the choices we might make between them while Jupiter is in Libra. Some friends might run away with your heart during this eclipse! But beware, for it is in the myth of Aphrodite — Venus — that she is given a girdle by the gods that lends her the ability to wield her tongue to appeal to vanity. Make sure whoever you might be involved with is not simply selling you sweet dreams and words, pandering to your ego, with no intention of giving anything of value in return. Glamour and charm can be persuasive, but empty when they have lost their power to enchant.

Jupiter is also square Pluto in Capricorn and Venus in Aries, where Venus is at her detriment, and where rammy Mars also happens to be. Since Aries is Mars’ natural home, the presences of Uranus and Venus alongside him are secondary to Mars, who holds primacy over those planets. With the male and female energies in tight configuration, this could make for sparks between lovers, but this sexual tension could also easily manifest as argument, the knock-down drag-out 3 am fight that ends up in a heated reunion. If you live in close proximity with those kinds of romantic entanglements like I have, you might want to invest in some ear plugs to save your sanity. (Or, you might be inspiring others to buy ear plugs.)

Further complicating factors is Saturn in Sagittarius square Pluto in Capricorn and Mars/Uranus in Aries square Pluto. Jupiter in Libra will be expanding these malefics and is pulling at the stellium in Pisces — Chiron, Neptune, Mercury, Sun and Moon — as well as Venus, Mars, and Uranus seated in Aries.

Jupiter forms an anchor point in this configuration. And while the term anchor sounds like a stabilizing force, perhaps this is inaccurate — better to say that in this case, Jupiter’s amplifying power is perhaps best described as a slingshot, in which Mars conjunct Uranus and the stellium in Pisces is going to add expansive force to these planets and signs respective properties. Pisces in his foggy element will have the capacity to lead astray with greater enthusiasm or, at best, inspiring genius and creatives propelled by martial energy thanks to the god of war. Mars with Uranus will lend an intense force in their own arenas, Pluto’s square supercharging all that’s already in play in this clash of malefics.

Good luck everyone, stay safe, stay aware, and keep your thinking clear so you can perceive obstacles and work around them safely. I expect a potential uptick in car accidents (Mercury and Neptune) so be careful when out drinking and driving and navigating with your fellow citizens on the road.

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 ~ Space Dust – Darkstar Astrology


Lunar Eclipse on February 10 2017 at 22º Leo  Aspects: Trine Uranus/Eris & Sextile Jupiter. Fixed star: Pherkad in the right foot of the Little Bear


Moon Leo 3 does not sugar-coat for the sake of popularity. In a sign that seems so ego-driven, the maternal energy of the bear is actually more about helping others than themselves. It depends on how evolved the soul is, with other harsh aspects there can be a ruthless drive and tyrannical tendencies. At this time we might have to face traits caused by a difficult childhood, one where we had to fight to be ourselves. Of course this eclipse can work to toughen the soul up too, and by the end of the 3 months more belligerent.

Despite all, even if decisions taken at this time rub people up the wrong way, they are still admired for being courageous choices. As the head of a nation, company or family, this eclipse enables trail blazers who will do whatever it takes to protect those little cubs in their care.

At the mundane level this is the great patriot willing to die for their country. (Country = descendants.) Loyalty is the number one demand at this time, so woe betide traitors. Those who stoop to revenge at this time will suffer greatly, but they won’t care who else they bring down with them. So keep a wide berth from the great sinking bear!!

Three fixed stars found around the eclipse degree: The first is Tania Australis  (21º 41′) a red star in the paw of the great mother bear. These stars in Ursa major have a Mars quality according to Ptolemy. “It is said to give a quiet, prudent, suspicious, mistrustful, self-controlled, patient nature, but an uneasy spirit and great anger and revengefulness when roused.” Ras Elased Borealis (21º 26′) is in the lion’s head. The Ebertins say it can give rise to mental illness and depression depending on how it is configured. Since this is an eclipse, there is always a ‘wild card’ element to this energy. We have already seen so many celebrities meltdowns in the media, just expect more from those with 22º Leo in their charts!

Noonan says the Lion’s head stars “are said to indicate those with an appreciation for language and a power of expression, but also those who may be heartless and cruel.” So this star adds a mocking, satirical quality then. The brightest of the stars and closed to the eclipse degree is Pherkad (21º 36′) is found in the Little Bear Ursa Minor. The constellation gives “indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles.” We can also bear in mind that even though these stars have very rough edges, the ancient navigators looked upon them as guardians and guides since they are close to the poles. Rough diamonds then!

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 ~ Aspects

The Sun is opposite the Moon in a lunar eclipse. This opposition is part of a mystic rectangle aspect pattern which links the eclipse with Jupiter opposite Uranus at 21º/23º Aries/Libra. Lets look at the aspects that make up this rectangle.


Moon trine Uranus brings an abundance of radical and innovative energy to the public. Self-assured rebellion occurs from those who don’t give a fig about conforming to the status quo. The trine brings to fruition personal freedom, revolution and electric genius. At this eclipse the more outlandish people behave, the more popular they become.

Sun sextile Uranus creates brilliant, visionary situations and the courage to break through conventions. This rebelliousness comes from having gone through a period of conformity and orthodoxy. The stability of the past, at least provided a stable anchor from which this Uranian ship can explore. So conversely, it is the very fact that we have had such a safe, stable background in the past that we feel secure enough to take great leaps into the Uranian unknown.

Moon sextile Jupiter. The imagination is expansive and pioneering, inspired by overseas or inner travel. The eclipse energy will still support the roots though, no matter how far afield we might voyage. Those touched by this moon should attract benefactors. Sometimes this comes as a reward from generously nurturing and supporting other artists in the past.

Sun trine Jupiter has strong beliefs, so this aspect of the eclipse probes people to do their duty and support those who they deem worthy enough or not as the case may be. There is a strong sense of justice and a look at how fair some laws are. Reforms in the law could be made at this time. Sun trine Jupiter gives the foresight to spot talent and potential in apprentices. Agents are on the look out for fresh blood at this time.

Jupiter opposite Uranus creates exciting new utopias and visions for the future that can inspire others to follow the path to illumination. Uranus is the great enlightener, so it can be a Kundalini awakening also since with Jupiter spirituality and sex merge. Jupiter and Uranus also both share thunderbolts in common!

Lunar Eclipse Mystical Rectangle

https://pathsiwalk.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/fm-feb.gif?w=225&h=298We had a mystical rectangle pattern back at the Gemini Full Moon December 2016 where I likened it to opening a Christmas present. I called it ‘Unveiling’ and pondered wether the packaging was more glamorous than the actual contents. The theme this time is similar with Jupiter opposite Uranus being activated again.

Back then Saturn was opposite the Moon. “The internal pressure caused by the oppositions could lead to a breakdown. If the internal tension is not diffused, substance is lost. Sometimes the bottled-up pressure leads to mental confusion, there is a conversion, a transformation from Saul to Paul. That leads to a wholesale abandonment of what was important before, thus enabling a spiritual rebirth.” [1]

Before Christmas there was a lot of tension waiting to be released. People were sitting on the Gemini fence, flip-flopping from left to right, not knowing if Trump would make it to inauguration. The end of the year does have a certain doomladen “End Times’ vibe. This rectangle is different. It actually has Saturn crowning it and looks like the apex of a roof. This eclipse can be more hopeful.

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 ~ Summary

In order for real change to take place in society, there has to be a concerted effort to organize and get one’s message across in a non-violent fashion. The Lunar eclipse activation of one of the most positive aspects of the year is something to be excited about! It looks like truth and integrity will shine through. Uranus is the new technology which we can use as a way to awaken ourselves and others. The cyber world is a double edged sword and we must always remember to unplug ourselves so that we get good dose of earthing energy too. With this eclipse we see the good side of technology and how we can use it to unchain ourselves from slavery.

Knowledge is power, but unfortunately state-sponsored education works to dumb down the younger generations. These days they are also crippled by debt as soon as they enter their adult lives. In effect, today’s youngsters are enslaved as soon as they leave college whereas their ‘uneducated’ grandparents left school, went to work and could afford to start a family straight away. They matured very early learning through having responsibilities in life. Jupiter is about higher-learning so at this eclipse we look at what ways we can educate ourselves so that we can make better life choices and be truly free and sovereign human beings.

Another point about slavery is that it is also about being a sex slave. Young people are being groomed into sex slavery through internet porn. As mentioned, Jupiter opposite Uranus can symbolize the Kundalini. The internet can be a great awakener, but there are so many rabbit holes you can fall into. It is only a very small percentage of people who follow the priestess snake of wisdom, while others get vectored into the prostitute snake of the lower chakras! However just a small percent is all it takes to move the masses, as long as a critical mass is reached. Looking back at the mystic rectangle, Saturn makes a minor grand trine with the Sun and Jupiter. This this may be where the trickle-down effect starts from. Saturn is actually pretty close to Galactic Center too at 26º Sagittarius, so maybe there is just something in the star dust!
