Venus enters Pisces

On 27 March 2019 we have Venus entering Pisces.  Venus represents our relationships, our relationship to money and how we earn it, values and self-esteem.  With Venus sitting in the sign of Pisces we can expect our conscious and unconscious feelings arise within our partnerships and jobs so you may find yourself acting in ways without thinking what you are doing.  The veil between the spirit world and earth is very thin so watch for signs, synchronicities and hunches as your intuition will be at a peak when it comes to matters of the heart.   Also, pay attention to your dreams as they may be extremely vivid and have a sign for you.  Pisces is the last zodiac sign, therefore, represents endings, completions and surrendering to the unknown.  Pisces energy creates a sense of mystery and makes us question the broader questions about life such as what is the meaning of life.  It is an extremely compassionate time where our boundaries come down and we have so much love for humanity and are more open to our spiritual side.  However, be careful not to fall to the flip side of this energy bringing chaos, illusion, running from problems and acting deceptively.  It is a great time to spend with your elders, spending time by the water, and meditating.  Look to your house ruled by Pisces to see where you are being asked to surrender to the universe and let things happen organically.

Full Super Moon in Libra

We have a Super Moon in Libra on 21 March 2019 . A Super Full Moon is extra potent as it makes its closest approach to earth resulting in the largest lunar disk as seen from Earth.  The energies for us on Earth are felt a lot stronger as well, so you can expect the lead up to this Full Moon to be highly emotional.  Libra is represented by the scales, therefore, this full moon is helping to show us where the scales may be unbalanced in any part of our life but also where there is harmony in our life.  As Libra is an air sign it is great to use this energy for communicating, spending time with like-minded souls, your partners and indulging in things that ignite the senses (e.g. massage, yummy food and wine, shopping).  This full moon will also help us all see different perspectives than we usually see – so pay attention to any issues that may need you to take a different perspective.  It will be a great time to debate and ponder ideas – however, you may struggle to make concrete decisions under this indecisive influence so it is better to wait out anything important until after the full moon (or better yet after Mercury goes direct).  The Moon is opposing Chiron at the time of the full moon so you may find it hard to express your feelings without feeling awkward. Venus is also square Mars so there may be intense love/hate feelings being felt. Look for constructive ways of projecting this emotion rather than arguing and getting yourself nowhere with another. Check your Natal chart to the house ruled by Libra to see where your attention is being bought to under this Full Moon.

Autumn Equinox

This time every year (21 March) we celebrate the seasons changing from Summer into Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.   The equinox represents the Earth’s annual cycle around the Sun resulting in equal day and equal night.  It is a time of change, endings and beginnings. We now start the astrological new year.  For the next month we are being asked to spend our attention on ourselves versus the need for relationship. We need to assess who we are as well as finding the love for ourselves stronger than the need for relationship.  Once we can do this we are then ready to share our love with another.  You will see where you over-compromise versus where you are too selfish this month.   Usually we give too much love to other relationships and don’t allow ourselves to receive.  Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Aries to get a better idea of where the Sun will be illuminating a call for more independence this month.

R.I.P Keith Flint

I woke up feeling the strong need to write about Keith’s death as I feel in the Astrology world, what people don’t understand is that we can see a lot of what is going on with peoples ‘psychological state’. No we cannot ‘fix it’, but we can definately be there to talk, give some tips of how to work with the energy more constructively, look into possible time frames that the energy is hanging around and tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel. We can recommend some very helpful professional people for you also. Of course there are other factors that come into play, but astrology is a tool that can assit. I will never forget seeing The Prodigy at Big Day Out, it is up there in one of my favourite performances ever. His ability to give so much energy and passion in his performance definately had a lot to do with his Sun ‘conjunct’ Pluto. Rest in Peace you legend!!

Mercury goes retrograde

Mercury the planet of communication goes retrograde on 6 March 2019. Mercury retrogrades last for three weeks (technically the effects last longer but this is the time frame that Mercury is officially retrograde). Whenever a planet goes retrograde it does the reverse effects of what it does when it is going direct. Mercury goes retrograde 3-4 times a year. By rule this is not a good time to sign any important documents, make any important decisions and start anything brand new, because more than likely things will change once Mercury goes direct again. There are definitely exceptions to the rule depending on the circumstance. As Mercury is the planet that helps us communicate our thoughts and deliver our communication (whether in person or using technology), when it is retrograde it makes us internalize our thoughts and makes us very introspective over this period. Mercury takes you back over old thought patterns that you may have glossed over, and now have to take a deeper look into things (possibly need to address an issue you never got around to). It also will make communication more confusing, as there will be misunderstandings due to communication not being as clear. Around mercury retrogrades, you can expect to be delayed when trying to get somewhere fast, miss appointments by getting the days/times mixed up, and technical breakdowns with technology and cars, so triple check everything to avoid this. Time also feels like it is going very slow.  Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Pisces, to get a better understanding of where you are being dragged back to take a deeper look. For the collective, we are all reviewing our connection to the universe and taking a look at what we believe the meaning of life is about. Some deep stuff will come up no doubt.  As you and others will be highly sensitive during this time, really watch how you communicate.  You will find listening to music, writing poems or doing art very therapeutic during these times.    

Uranus enters Taurus

Uranus the planet that rules unpredictability, shakes up the status quo, gets us out of ruts and propels us out of our comfort zone enters Taurus on 6 March 2019. This is big news as Uranus takes 7-8 years to travel through a sign – the last 7-8 years we have collectively changed our ‘identity’ in how we see ourselves in the world. Now we collectively will be changing what we hold valuable to us, how we view relationships and how we earn our money. Our relationship in how we treat mother earth will go through a big change. This transit could see a lot of earthquakes occur in the next 8 year period as well as a change in monetary systems, change in fashion and beauty cosmetics. To get a better idea of how this change will affect you, check your natal chart to the house ruled by Taurus. Feel free to reach out for a reading if you want a further understanding of how this will affect you.

New Moon in Pisces

We have a Pisces new moon occurring on Thursday 7 March 2019 at NZT 5.04am. Some of you will be desiring more alone time and reflection, along with allowing your feelings to flow and letting go of what no longer serves your soul. There may be past memories that need clearing so do not be surprised if the past is on your mind.  These are all typical themes we deal with this time every year as Pisces represents the end of the astrological year. The Moon is making some nice aspects to other planets at the time of the New Moon, therefore we have some magic to tap into this month. We have the Moon ‘conjunct’ Neptune, giving us the opportunity to practice more trust in the universe.  There is a ‘universal order’ to how things will play out this month so try and allow synchronicity to step in, as opposed to trying to control everything. There is magic in surrendering to the flow of the universe and trusting things will pan out as they should. Due to Neptune’s foggy qualities, this conjunction can also bring with it some confusion and fantasy in how we are seeing certain situations or people. The more conscious awareness we have, the more we can discern what is reality so keep up your spiritual practices to ensure you are grounded and not getting swept up in illusion. Dreams will be very vivid along with our psychic abilities. You may feel a bit confused and all over the place, but the fact you know this means you can sit back and observe what is coming up to heal and be released.  It is all happening to ultimately help show us the way to our soul purpose. Saturn, Pluto and Mars are all ‘sextiling’ the Moon which means we have a helping hand from the universe to bring our dreams down into reality this month. We have the practicality and stamina to persevere with our life’s vision. Jupiter is ‘squaring’ this New Moon, therefore the advice here is to not overdo things this month as you could find it easy to overindulge and push yourself.  I recommend you spend some time alone over the days of the New Moon and allow yourself to connect to your soul either through meditating/yoga or music. This is when the insights come to us and the healing can take place. Look to your Natal chart and see which house is ruled by Pisces to get an in depth idea where endings and beginnings are occurring with this New Moon.  Remember things need to fall apart in order for new energy to surge in.

Venus enters Aquarius

Venus, the planet of love and values enters freedom loving and intellectual Aquarius on NZT Saturday 2 March 2019.  You may notice your relationships change ‘vibe’ for the next month. You will likely become more chatty, looking for more adventures to be had, spending time with what feels like your ‘tribe’ and generally socialize a lot more and mix with different people.  As Aquarius is an air sign, people born with this energy love to discuss different ideas and innovate.  Therefore you may find yourself thinking more uniquely, seeing things from different views and you may also notice yourself become more receptive to environmental factors and the need to help the environment.  It is a great time to get out and meet new people from all walks of life as well as creating gatherings with friends.  I encourage you to also listen to new ideas that may be coming up out of the blue.  For a better understanding of how you will be affected look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Aquarius.

Full Moon in Virgo

Wednesday 20 February 2019 at 4.54am NZT we experience a Super Full Moon in Virgo.  Super Moons occur when the Moon is closer to Earth, and on February 19th, the Moon will be at its closest point all year. Around this time you may find yourself looking very closely at your diet/health, exercise, routine and how you are being of service.   It is important to not let the details of life stress you out around this time, but more importantly “discern” what it is that needs your attention.  You may find you want to spend this Full Moon period doing some sort of detox for the mind, body and soul.  If health issues come up around this time, then take it as a sign that you need to reinvent your schedule for a more healthy ‘you’ time. The aspects that this Full Moon is making is a ‘trine’ over to Mars and Uranus. Maybe something out of the blue will happen around this Full Moon that involves a new way of work, eating, health or exercise. We also have Saturn ‘sextile’ Mercury on this day, therefore something on a more spiritual and ‘untouched’ level is helping to bring concrete foundations into your life.  Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Virgo to get a more in depth understanding where this Full Moon is affecting you personally.  Feel free to reach out for a reading to understand it better for your own chart.
