Scorpio Full Moon

We have a Full Moon in Scorpio happening on 19 May 2019 NZT. Themes of Scorpio are to do with finances,  sexuality, transformation, taboo subjects and death. We really feel on a primal level what our desires are, so pay attention. It is a great time to allow the inner demons to come up and release all the doubt and negativity that hangs around inside. Issues from the past or subconscious issues may be cropping up because you have suppressed these emotions (take note of your dreams also as this can be a sign of what is hanging around your subconscious). When we don’t accept all parts of ourselves (i.e. the parts we feel ashamed of and judge) they start to rule us…this is where you need to take an internal stand and take the power back by firstly embracing the good, bad and ugly.  The more higher vibrations of Scorpio energy are transformation and changing (like the snake shedding its skin).  You know you are in the more lower vibrations if you are feeling paranoid or acting out in manipulative ways. Look to your natal chart to the house ruled by Scorpio to see where deep fears and transformation needs to be addressed. The full moon will be making an opposition with Mercury which means you may be trying very hard to make rational sense out of emotions.  Learn to sit with the deeper feelings rather than over analyze.  We also have Venus conjunct Uranus at the time of this Full Moon so watch for something unexpected to manifest in either your finances or relationships.

Mars enters Cancer

Mars is the planet that represents our assertion, desire and motivation (its the masculine energy in us).  It moves into Cancer on 16 May 2019 and stays for 6 weeks.  Mars in Cancer is not in its best position.  Mars likes to be more aggressive and tackle things immediately and with confidence.  When it sits in Cancer it makes the energy a lot more emotional, makes us procrastinate and creates lethargy.  So if you start to notice yourself stuck on the couch over the next 6 weeks you know why 🙂 It is important to channel your emotions constructively (i.e. express yourself, write or spend time by the ocean/lakes to keep the watery emotional energy moving).  It’s a great time to spend with people from your past and family members.  Its the ultimate snuggle energy :). Look to your natal chart and the house ruled by Cancer to get a better idea where you will be motivated over the next 6 weeks.

Venus enters Taurus

Venus moves into Taurus on 15 May 2019 NZT.  Venus represents our relationships, our relationship to money and how we earn it, values and self-esteem.  Venus sits right at home in the sign of Taurus, therefore we can expect the next month to bring us relief and belief again when it comes to our relationships and earning ability.  In the first few days of Venus arriving in Taurus, she meets up with Uranus.  Expect the unexpected when it comes to possible earning avenues.  It can manifest in numerous ways, but if an opportunity comes out of the blue you know Uranus has granted this.  Venus coming into Taurus will be helping to ground your visions/dreams as she will make some nice aspects to Neptune, Pluto and Saturn over the month, therefore, put in the hard work and watch tangible results manifest.  It is a great time to work on your relationships and relook at your values.  Look to your natal chart to the house ruled by Taurus to get a better idea of how this will affect you over the next month.

Mercury enters Taurus

We have Mercury the planet of communication moving into Taurus on 7 May 2019.  Our thought patterns will slow down substantially from the Aries pace.  We will be thinking more methodically, resourcefully and have a lot more patience.  As grounded as this placement is – once the bull gets fired up it will blow, so I suggest not to push the limits too far when communicating your own thoughts. This placement has the potential for us to get very fixed and stubborn when getting our point across – the best way to use this is to focus on one project as it will give you the endurance to follow through.  Our thoughts will be drawn to things like cooking, indulging in rich foods, gardening, shopping, wining and dining and just wanting to be doing anything that serves comfort for ourselves.   Relationships will also continue to be a strong theme on our mind along with our values and how we earn our money.  Mercury will meet up with Uranus in the first few days of entering Taurus – therefore expect the unexpected this week.  You could receive some news that changes how you earn your money, however, it depends on where it is hitting your chart to know exactly you will be affected.  If you want a better idea of how you will be affected with Mercury entering Taurus look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Taurus.

New Moon in Taurus

We have a New Moon in Taurus happening at NZT 10.46am 5 May 2019.  Seeing as this New Moon is in an earth sign, this is a great time to set intentions for your physical reality and watch the fruits of what you have asked for appear.  Having Neptune ‘sextile’ this New Moon this shows us this month is powerful in manifesting your dreams into reality.  We will all benefit with this New Moon energy by feeling very grounded within ourselves.  There will be the potential to tap into finding new ways of earning money, so get creative and use your talents to open new avenues of income.  Collectively our values are all undergoing a massive change since Uranus entered Taurus in March.  This New Moon is implementing  these new value changes.  We are constantly evolving and changing, therefore, it is important to stop and think about what is valuable to you in this current moment.   The energy around this New Moon is great to indulge in your senses with lovely food, material items (shopping) and gardening.  Its the perfect time to spend time with your loved ones (e.g. go on a romantic date). Taurus New Moons always ask us to slow down and appreciate the moment.  Appreciate love and beauty in its most simplest forms.  We will all to some extent be striving for both financial and emotional security over the next month.  Take advantage of this New Moon by breaking yourself out of ruts (whether that is a habit, belief, attitude or relationship) that needs to be changed.   Venus the planet that rules Taurus, sits in Aries at the time of this New Moon, which means we are being asked to initiate projects and follow our passion.  However, we do have Venus ‘squaring’ Saturn, which is asking us to set boundaries and double check before forging ahead.  Venus ‘squaring’ the nodes has a fateful effect this month.  Relationships and jobs that are brought in will have a significant role to play in your lives.  Look to your Natal chart and the house ruled by Taurus to get a better understanding where the energy is playing out for you.

Sun moves into Taurus

The Sun moves into Taurus on 20 April 2019 NZT.  We are now moving from a lot of fire energy to slow patient Taurus energy so you may notice the pace of your life slow down.  The Taurus month starts of with the Sun sitting next to Uranus in Taurus so there may be some unpredictable events over the next few days. For the rest of the month, you may notice yourself become more opinionated so watch for arguments, however, it is a great time to concentrate and persist on any project we have going as the bull in us will give great determination to tackle any task head-on.  As a collective, the Sun in Taurus invites us all to slow down and indulge in our five senses (feel, touch, see, taste, hear) e.g. by taking a walk in nature, enjoying good quality food and drink, buying nice clothes and also nurturing our one to one relationships.  You may find yourself being a lot more fixated on your finances and looking more at your values.   The next month is a great time to focus on our talents, gifts and abilities and patiently persist with them.

Mercury enters Aries

Mercury the planet of communication enters into Aries on 17 April 2019. We can expect our thoughts to become a lot more clear and decisive. We are moving away from the last 2 months of Mercury in Pisces that brought a lot of endings, spiritual revelations and confusion. Our communication becomes impatient, passionate and at times very blunt (try to remember to think before you speak). Keeping your mind busy and active is the best way to channel this energy – for example get outside and get active whilst catching up with a friend (e.g. walk and talk). Your mind will want to initiate and start new projects. Get involved in anything that is creative and gives you passion. Look to your natal chart to the house ruled by Aries to see where your thoughts are being drawn to. Feel free to reach out for a reading 🙂

Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter the planet that rules expansion, abundance, lessons, faith, philosophy and truth is turning retrograde on 11 April 2019. Since November 2018 Jupiter moved into Sagittarius where we have all been stretched in one way or another to grow, push us out of our comfort zone and seek deeper meaning/truth. This all depends on where Jupiter is transiting your natal chart as to what exactly you have been encouraged to learn and grow. The lessons that have been learnt since November take more of an internal focus for the next 5 months. Jupiter may return something to you in this time from a long time ago – a course you once took up, a country you once visited or a job/relationship you once had. Whatever returns in the next 5 months has a piece to your missing puzzle. You can expect some great epiphanieis to occur in this retrograde cycle and some much-needed insight or wisdom to flood through. Enjoy 🙂 reach out for a reading if you want to understand how you are being affected.

Mercury conjunct Neptune

Even though Mercury has turned direct, the confusion, healing and chaos will be hanging around for a couple more weeks until Mercury enters Aries. Today we have Mercury sitting next to Neptune which means there could be an important message you need to listen out for. Spending time alone will help to download any insight you may need guidance on. Take the time to do something relaxing, read a book, do a yoga class, listen to music or meditate. Do something that helps you connect to your soul. We still have foggy and unclear mist to sort through over the next couple of weeks but you will notice things slowly make a lot more sense when Mercury enters Aries on April 19 2019. Enjoy the next few weeks of reflection and subtle insights coming to your awareness. We are shedding for a big paradigm shift, therefore, the more you tap into what your soul needs, the easier this transition will be.

New Moon in Aries

We have a New Moon in Aries occurring on 5 April 2019 NZT 8.50pm. This is a great time to set your intentions for the astrological year ahead. Its a time of beginnings as Aries rules the start of the astrological cycle for the next 12 months. You will notice yourself this month have the energy, fire and inspiration to tackle tasks and implement new projects. Mars the planet that rules Aries is sitting in Gemini, therefore we are all full of creative ideas – so listen to what’s coming to mind this month.   It is a great time to initiate change or take up something new.  It is a great time to rid yourself of old beliefs that are no longer resonating with your life.  Spend time with yourself and listen to your gut.  It is the time to act on impulse and plant the seeds for your ideas. Take advantage of the inspiration and abundance of energy this month. There is a ‘square’ over to Saturn around this New Moon. If you are feeling restricted around your plans/ideas, know that they may need more refining. Saturn will make it very obvious if there is no real foundation to your ideas as you will find it near impossible to carry them through. However, if you find challenges and pass the test, then you will know your ideas/plans have the stamina to carry through. It’s a great time to also get active and burn off any extra rage or frustration. This will help to avoid unnecessary arguments, as this energy can make us feel a bit short tempered if we are not directing our energy constructively. Feel free to reach out if you need some astro guidance 🙂
