Cosmic Chronicle – July 2012

newsletter - July 2012Challenging is a good word to describe the last six months. Our challenges actually began in 2010, and escalated to fever pitch when the planet of change, Uranus, settled in the fire sign, Aries, on March 11, 2011, where it will remain until May 15, 2018 when it will move into Taurus. Since the beginning, we have been on an unmerciful roller coaster ride filled with unexpected chaos, confusion and change!

July 4 will usher in a positive and surprisingly optimistic energy during the American Independence Day celebrations, curtsey of a Capricorn Full Moon, July 3. Uranus will go retrograde July 13 – December 13 in Aries. And, Mercury will go retrograde July 14 – August 8 in Leo. The pace will appear to slow, and we will finally have some time for a much needed time-out. Inner reflection and examination of our future direction will be the major theme during this period. As well as completing projects that have been put on the back-burner for so long, i.e., cupboards, closets, attics, basements and garages! During this Mercury Retrograde, old friends, long lost relatives, and even those who have passed-on could suddenly contact us. A return of past relationships is the focus for this unusual Mercury Retrograde.

Much emphasis has been put on a personal and collective spiritual awakening this year, but what does it mean? During the age of darkness and materialism, we were taught that the term spiritual meant core religious beliefs. And, for the last 168 years that conditioned definition was true. However, we are realizing now that whatever acts as our inner support system and directs us to our greatest potential of awareness is truly our core spiritual self. We are evolving into spiritual beings with a broader perspective of being part of something far greater than ourselves. On a reflective note, and given recent events, it appears that organized religions were much more dogmatically confident, and profitable, when their flocks revolved and lived in unquestioned faith and trust.

Although there are still bumps in the cosmic road ahead, our incredible journey is far from over, especially as we move into mid-month, then all hell will break loose again! But, just as quickly as it began, we will comfortably and securely end the month with a bright New Moon in Cancer on July 19, and the Sun will enter the fire sign, Leo, July 22.

August will come in with a much more positive energy as Neptune, Pluto and Uranus begin to mellow their cosmic flair-ups. A keen sense of awareness will help us to recognize any unexpected opportunities which could present themselves and ignite our ambition, drive, and passions in the direction we have chosen. So, stay tuned as we continue to move forward, onward and upward together.

Cosmic Chronicle – March 2012

Cosmic ChronicleAs the days grow longer, we instinctively look forward to welcoming spring with a surge of hope, renewal, and vibrant energy.  But, since January 23, many have experienced a firm cosmic thumb on the top of their head, appearing to weigh them down with confusion, uncertainty, lethargy, and self-doubts. And others have felt the direct opposite. This frustrating and conflicting phenomenon happens every two years, when Mars goes into retrograde motion.  The good news is; Mars, ruler of energy, sex, aggression and action, will go direct on April 13.  It definitely hasn’t helped that Mars has been in retrograde in the most critical, perfection driven, and detail oriented sign of the zodiac, Virgo. The steroid powered roller coaster ride that we’ve been on has found many spinning their wheels, and getting nowhere, fast!

Although March began with challenges, there is an extraordinary silver lining coming our way as we approach the week of March 12. Mars will be joined in a cosmic line-up that is going to be an energy packed, focused and positively opportunistic Grand Trine starring; Jupiter, Neptune, Venus and Pluto, which will continue through March 23.

This will be an excellent time to hit the casino, start new projects, correct mistakes, and get motivated in a positive direction. Many will uncover unexpected financial opportunities, renewed passions, and an emerging readiness to accept personal and spiritual growth. We can consider this an honest beginning as we continue to transition from the darkness into the light.

The Full Moon will be on March 8, in the earth sign of Virgo. Daylight Savings Time will resume on Sunday, March 11. And, Mercury will go into retrograde motion on March 12 – April 4 in the fire sign of Aries. We’ll celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, and the Spring Equinox, which is also the first day of spring, will officially arrive on March 20. The Sun will also enter the fire sign of Aries on March 20, and the New Moon will be in Aries on March 22.

Now, I didn’t say that there wouldn’t be a few bumps in the cosmic road this month.  A Mercury Retrograde always messes up communication and commerce, but, when it’s stationed in Aries, we can expect impulsive, illogical, short-tempered outbursts. Road rage, domestic violence, and impatience can unexpectedly present themselves. You may hear people say, “I haven’t got a clue what got into me?” And, you will be able to respond, “Nothing trivial, Mercury is retrograde in Aries, you’ll be yourself again after April 4.”

When we get past this month, we will feel much more like ourselves, with positive energy and renewed determination to move forward in our future. We may even begin to see our wishes manifest.
