The next Full Moon takes place in the western tropical zodiac sign of Aries on Monday September 24 at 7:52 PST. As with all Full Moons, the aftereffects will be felt and dealt with for the two weeks following, which means the days leading up to October 8 PST.
We feel blue–or sad or even angry–because we want things to be a certain way, and they aren’t that way. Feeling blue stems from desire twinged with expectations. At numerous points throughout our lives, each of us wants things to be a particular way, and when they aren’t fitting with that mold, how often do we suffer?
I've noticed a trend in my astrological practice, especially reflected in the birth charts of women who have experienced abuse or sexual trauma in early age. But this trend is *universal* and is not limited to women alone. It may extend to us all. Trauma is a delicate subject. It is my hope and prayer in writing this that we develop a deeper understanding of one specific effect trauma can potentially have on our life.
To find love, we must marinate in the depths of our lov-ing-ness. We must endure the cataclysmic intensity within ourselves which paves the way for true love. The ecstasy of love is born of attentiveness...to the field of possibilities and miracle all around.
When you buy a new device or a piece of technology, it often comes with an owner's manual. All because you don't follow those instructions, that doesn't mean that the device doesn't operate that way. It simply means you have chosen to not read them!
There is a real power in having someone engage in profound conversation with us rooted in their knowledge of our astrology and its potentialities – and many facets of the self, the authentic self, with all its complexity, that can be discovered.
Desire is an organic part of life. We've all come to this world with some measure of it, whether it is the desire for sensuality, earning, influence, or prestige. It's counterproductive to try to negate our desires, since the more we negate them, the stronger they become.
During this soulful and mystical time period, we have access to sacred and otherworldly dimensions of consciousness that transcend ordinary forms of knowing, making this a great time to envision goals.
Our parents taught us how to be them, whether they realize it or not. Our school teachers taught us how to learn to be like others. The collective tug of society instructs us that we are to fit into a tiny mold of what we ‘ought’ to be...
The powerfully emotional “Super” Full Moon is taking place on Saturday, August 29, 2015 @ 2:35 PM at 6° of Pisces. Everyone is talking and writing about it, and lots of ideas are going around. I can’t help but feel a sense of urgency about this Full Moon as it is illuminating powerful lessons...
In qualitative research, one commonly used technique is ‘triangulation’, in which the researcher “triangulates in” on the truth or reality of a person, thing, or situation she is trying to research, insofar as it is thought to exist.
My little cat, Lenny, *loves* Smoky Quartz, the therapeutic gemstone for the astrological sign Scorpio. Interestingly my astrology shows that my cat (or other domestic pets) are Scorpionic lovers (Venus rules my 6th house of small animals and is in Scorpio!). Scorpio is the most potent and intense sign. For humans this equates to emotional power and resilience, regeneration, self-control, and transformation.
Just as the acorn requires a shell but eventually needs to outgrow it in order to become the oak tree, so too the human being must leave behind all egoic and selfish attachments in order to become what it is finally meant to be - a vehicle for enlightened consciousness.
Early on Thursday, August 6 2015 to Saturday, August 8, 2015, Mercury conjoins Jupiter at the end of Leo offering us a blissful opportunity to expand our perception of what is possible for us in our lives.
We all have a Sun sign that shows our heart, Spirit, and life aspiration based on our season and hemisphere (north or south) of birth - but we also have a Moon sign that shows our emotional imprint, Soul and feeling nature.
