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.

Another powerful new moon occurring for January 27th through February 24, 2017, let’s welcome this Aquarius new moon as it arrives with a Bang! I’ve always said, “be alert during any Aquarian moon time as it’s power to bring justice and revelations is unequivocal.” Now we’re experiencing both sun and moon in Aquarius, the archetype of Sango at 8° lending to its power and authority, this is a “Justice Moon” and who would not want to be on the correct side of Ose Sango (Sango’s double edged ax)?
A “Justice Moon” cuts away at the pillars of any falsehood, it will expose and punish, as well as offer healing, and justice. We will see this and other current lunar themes play themselves out throughout the next 28 days. This moon time can spark the encouragement of entrepreneurship, and the championing of some outlandish adventure. It’s an action oriented moon time that can give fire and devotion not only to one’s personal causes but to group causes. These causes can be as minuscule as feeling dedicated to beginning or maintaining a work out regiment or can be as grand as joining, funding or creating an activism for humanitarian rights.
This is that moon time which influences our collective consciousness to develop or manage high standards and morals, because its the right thing to do, as suppose to doing it because one feels like it. This moon time brings the message of a “Sense of Duty,” and it awakens situations surrounding partnerships, business connections, and marriages. The moon semi-squares Venus, Oshun’s planet. This transit definitely encourages the tightening up of any loose ends which previously floated around. What we got away with before, in the aforementioned  institutional areas, won’t continue, at least for now. Also with this transit, any marriage, or business partnership  that is not up to par, will likely be thoroughly investigated, an the use of every available means will likely be requested.
Though anxiety and combative energies surround us at this time, the higher octave of Aquarian vibrations brings people of all walks of life and backgrounds to gather in solidarity, for the upliftment of humanity, and that was self evident during the Women’s March on January 21, when the sun was in Aquarius. An energy field was created by that event which shifted some of the intense, angry, and combative vibrations which were current at the time. We can harness that divine humanitarian love-energy and work with it this month by way of mediation, prayers, lightening candles, and or sharing our good inner light with others.
We may even experience this Aquarian Universal love, through situations of inspiration. This is because this moon time also carries a tone of “Inspiration.” Look within yourself and around yourself. Are more people feeling inspired to step out of their comfort zone?Are there more acts of inspirational support and  encouragement  towards the creation or completion of something occurring? This moon time at its highest octave encourages “Group greatness.”
During this moon time (28 day cycle)
During this moon time, at its lowest octave, cunningness lurks in the air. Aquarian moons activate humanitarian love,  personal greed, and comradery amongst groups. Be mindful of deceptive behaviors and self-deception, instead balance thought and logic.
Example: You left something at the house, and decide to return home to get it, but you’re in a rush.  You quickly dash upstairs forgetting to close the front door, then for whatever reason, you get distracted, and stay upstairs longer than planned. At this point you’ve left yourself vulnerable, and lost focus.
During this moon time some people may need to be extra attentive to what they say or do, so to avoid legal problems. Resolve the issue quickly if you can.
During this moon time  some people will experience confrontations and combativeness that is likely created through gossip.
During this moon time involving oneself in another person’s personal affairs or sharing their business is not good, it can lead to confrontations or violence.
During this moon time keep trying to get your projects, plans, and work off the ground, as our determination is likely to be tested.
During this moon time, some people’s business will get exposed. Protect yourself interests, keep your personal business personal, and secure what needs to be secured.
Moon Semi-square Saturn (Obaluaiye’s planet).
This transit can bring up challenges triggered by our thoughts of the past. There could be father-mother complexes surfacing which need attention. Even our focus and concentration can become weak. We could find ourselves day dreaming more. But with the semi square, we maybe more aware of our personal challenges than before. And this transit though challenging can offer us  a stronger chance to work through them.
Maneuvering Through this Aquarius Moon towards blessings (ire)
1. Receiving a personal readings is helpful.
2. Receiving rogation, eboleri, ibori is helpful, to open awareness and insight.
3. Listen to your instincts.
4. Good time to do new moon meditations to enhance or encourage perseverance of spirit and to lessen or eliminate emotional fatigue.
5. Encourage the higher octave of Aquarius in you. Be the leader and voice you wanted to have in your life.
6. Lock, secure property, avoid gossip, avoid crowds, avoid contracts without thorough investigation. Avoid fights, avoid destructive personality types.
7. Good moon time to avoid depressive thoughts, again, use meditation.
8. Good moon time to build positive relationships 1st with Self, and with others. Create the protective, safe space needed to make decisions. Then set the tone for how you want the rest of your year to look like.
9. New Moon Exercise: Use this moon time to begin the process of building and fortifying  (fill in the blank) ____________________ Then place a rose quartz in one fist and an amethyst stone in the other fist. Speak your desire as a mantra.
 
  
Have a Universally Loved, and Self Honoring New Moon Time!

3rd New Moon of Winter – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Lunar Monthly Musings by Phoenix the Elder – Greetings artists, people of dreams and visions, healers, seers and empaths… we have completed our second moon cycle of Capricorn now, which lasted till the very last moment! It hung onto its cycle with a fever – but on Jan 25th the energy shifted mid-afternoon and the water spilled releasing the Cancer’s full moons hold. Now we enter the final moon cycle of Winter and the electricity charge is much different and its goal is freedom, not responsibility. Aquarian and Sagittarius energy are the most rebellious of earth, even Trump, who is a Gemini with Uranus conjunct his Sun, will show the world how Uranian energy works for everyone to see.

I posted the first photo above to show you two main symbols of Uranus (Aquarian energy). The photo on the left is an expression of the 0-15 degrees Aquarius and the influences of Capricorn: The individual, the rebel, the true energy of  chaos within the family, corporations, government or business. The photo on the right, 15-30 degrees Aquarius, influenced by Pisces: The magical, the mystical and visionary or the self-sabotage sides of Aquarius/Uranus. This New Moon sits at 8 degrees Aquarius starting January 27, 2017, so we are going to express and observe in our personal world, the more challenging Capricorn issues of Saturn and Uranus’ who dislike of each other.

In families this will be the responsible one verses the chaos one, in community it will be the rebel verses structure, the closed minded verses the visionary and in the collective it will be the leadership and power verses the common sense and positive detachment that is required in great changes. So wherever you sit in the world this moon, try to understand the oppositions are the greatest of the year – this is because the new year (spring) hasn’t begun the new energy for the year yet, regardless what Sun calendars proclaim around the Winter Solstice.

1069420_488598261214698_683738790_nAll of you should have experienced some chaos already, if not, that train will arrive on time at the Leo Full Moon on Friday, Feb 10th. The work I teach is to structure soul and emotional chaos which is part true moon cycles. Its not to avoid it, its not about fearing this natural flow, its about jumping into it and letting it lead, showing you something about your fears, denials and avoidance of your own diving deep within which is hidden. That is what and where the mystery and magical is located for artists, dreamers, empaths etc.

Chaos Magic is truly a Uranian things, and those who study magic principles have no idea what true chaos means in the reality of you are going to experience the chaos, not others if you try to send anything out in this moon cycle. So be very wise to not do any type of magical work until spring comes when mother earth awakens. She does not like to be disturbed in her winter sleep.

I wrote an article a few months back of the Golden Baba, which are the golden grandmothers of our past. It spoke about the white indigenous tribe of the north who they in the 13th century called the “sleeping people” and if disturbed, they would wake up angry and also die. They were an old dream (bear) caln, who fell asleep around the Autumn Equinox and did not awaken until Spring. Of course, they died out because the new world order after the 12th century had no room for the old ones, just like everywhere else on earth.

vladislav-erkoFor those of you who are dreamers, its very important for you to give your self permission to dream in the three moons of winter and sleep more, especially if you have a water sun or moon (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio). Its necessary for you to maintain your natural emotional health, so try not to be swayed by the fire or earth clans people who hardly need any sleep and are on the go all the time.  Never compare yourself or your children to non-dreamer types.

I had to learn that lesson in my late 30s when my children were teenagers, I would say why can’t you behave like so and so and see them as an example, I had not mastered the mirror principles yet. I finally had so many good daggers thrown at me by my kids giving me flack for that, that I stopped and gave up.  So try to loosen the mother hen a bit this cycle (tribal or group thinking) and use your individual self or independent part of your self to chose only whats most important, most dangerous and most intense when dealing with your world to add some of your power to find balance. Then exercise the Fire Rooster you were born to be this moon cycle only (the little general) who protects and pays attention to purification and defense for healthy boundaries against those who want to eat you alive with their niceness.

Speaking of Fire Rooster energy, this new moon is also the Chinese New Year which brings fire and purification, of the bossy energy types! I will repeat again: Make sure the south direction of your home, house or property has some metal chimes hanging there until next February. Some bossy people are natural leaders, but some just need to cry and have a release and accept they are not the warrior types, they are just angry and under that anger, is a lot of sadness or depression which requires a lot of tears.

western-ukraineI ask people in the third moon of winter: “Where is your Rebel? Where is he or she hiding from you that either sabotages you or stands up for you? Remember all fixed signs must work together, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius must learn to be friends in order to help us navigate a fixed moon cycle. Taurus owns practicality, Leo owns Love, Scorpio sees in the Dark and Aquarius see’s all of them plus its own Rebel vs Chaos vs Visionary. So many feel people guilty for their rebel or their chaos and others make damn sure they do feel guilty for it. So in an Aquarian cycle, be emotionally detached and put on your armor but then when Pisces Moon comes next moon cycle, take the armor off, be emotional and throw that armor in the ocean of freedom.

Shame or Shaming others, used in an Aquarian cycle always backfires, so make sure you put that on the back burner, it is not a good attitude for this moon, and its wise to remember that you are truly your own worst enemy and nobody else is. This moon of winter says make a decision and stick to it, hell or high water. Fixed energy is to push through difficulty, slay the self (ego, vindictiveness or jealousy) and to give yourself so much trouble that you reach a higher level of your personal struggle. What I read out there in the spiritual world is, its all about the ONE LOVE, ONE WORLD, ONE ENERGY we are all connected to. That my friend is 1960s Aquarian bullshit and escapism that died on New Years Eve, 1970. We are all at different places, we all have different karma (vibration) and we are not all alike nor do we walk in that blindness or high.

Being Aquarian opposite Uranus with a Pisces Moon, I have had to learn to slay the self, then let go and put this on auto repeat most of my life til I got it right and once I joined the energy of the consciousness and actual cycles of the moon and mother earth, that became not only easier but it was so supportive to my spiritual path. A path that I was to survive, not play with its philosophies and theologies. So that is my wisdom for you so you can make it till the Spring Equinox with some self dignity left.

New Moon intentions for an Aquarian 3rd Moon of Winter Cycle:

I am independent
I accept my inner spiritual warrior (if your fearful)
I recognize my being right vs being happy
I become aware of one negative behavior (name what it is)
I practice silencing my thoughts
I nurture my emotional self
I practice projection in a positive and creative way
I am in the present moment (for the worriers / anxiety ones)
I am self-nurturing (if your continuing your healing path)
I protect my intimacy (those who fear speaking their needs)
I am capable & grounded in confrontation
I recognize my toxic behavior
I express my anger with self-control
I express my feelings (if your shy)
I recognize my false expectation
I bring into action my idealism
I am beautiful
I am making appropriate self judgement
I am intelligent
I breath to relax
I am observing more (for big talkers)
My needs are real
I trust my process

babd5e0d7a97745ed9dabe5d492061d6Last Note: Valentines Day is Feb 14 and the Full Moon in Leo is Feb 10th! So if something arises for you it might be around a release issue of Chaos Love.

Also in the Chart below: The Sun/Moon (new moon), are not really influenced by much here, but everywhere around them is a big fat T-Square (red triangle) which is tension. Since Leo is about relations on the full moon, note the mars, venus, chiron conjunction. If a love spat arises, just know that your personal woundedness will arise, so use it to your advantage to learn about where you are wounded in love.

Also practice being still, meditate, and focus on your groundedness and let the Chaos fly all around you. Try really hard NOT TO GET INVOLVE IN OTHER PEOPLES CHAOS this moon cycle…  you work on YOUR own chaos, and if involved in other peoples chaos, just practice a bit more silence and observe more of what is happening. Whatever you do, keep your mouth shut. That is my BEST wisdom for the month. If you do have to go chaos on a situation, make sure its worth the battle…

Blessings on the New Moon, Chinese New Year and Valentines Day!

Sagittarius New Moon

Get ready … Get set … Go …

Tales of Lunacy

space-doorwayThis New Moon on November 29th is in the sign of Sagittarius, the Seeker of Truth and Wisdom. Sagittarius is on a journey to explore, discover and encounter new worlds, new ideas and beliefs and new ways of life. Sag takes the high road and has faith and optimism about the future; and who couldn’t use a dose of that these days? On the flip side, Sagittarius can be too moralistic, preachy, self-righteous and judgmental.
These are some of the areas where the ground is fertile now; where new seeds may be planted. For some time now, we’ve had the task master Saturn in Sagittarius which has the effect of curbing our enthusiasm, slowing our growth, increasing responsibilities, testing our faith and limiting opportunities in order to narrow our options and focus. Yeah I know Saturn is all business and seems like no fun but there are valuable lessons here…
