Hidden Treasure

Hidden Treasure

If you took advantage of the Jupiter Mercury conjunction on the 21st then you may begin to see results as soon as now.

With Mercury and Neptune becoming conjunct, hidden treasures and hidden markets may have begun revealing themselves. Options you were unaware of or doors that have remained closed may begin opening for you as your voice reaches new places and new strategies start to manifest. Creative people may begin receiving renewed inspiration and words may start flowing as writing blocks give way.

If you’ve struggled to find your own authentic voice then the clarity of this conjunction may help you to re-frame your image and reposition your ideas. It may help you to inject that idealism and optimism into something that new eyes can really get behind.

Just be sure to reality check as you go. The easiest person to fool is often yourself despite the best of intentions and the shine of the new and the sheen of renewed belief in the importance of your cause can see you promising too much or seeing the ideal rather than the real.

Check your data twice – cut once.

You Are Beautiful (No Matter What You Say)

you are beautiful

With the abundance of potentially prosperous energy in the air this month it’s easy to lose sight of those neglected parts of ourselves. Our blind spots. Those parts of ourselves where we invest enthusiasm but lack motivation. Those projects and ambitions driven by faith alone.

The Sun conjuncts Neptune today in Pisces – strengthening intuition but also casting light on those goals that have been driven by feeling and self-belief as we wait for clearer signals and solid information. That time is now. Also revealed is the level of power and belief we invest in ourselves – how much we believe in who we are. Paired with the soft energy of Pisces, this might be a beautiful time for those who struggle to be kind to themselves.

If you’ve struggled to accept your imperfections then take this opportunity to find something beautiful in yourself today because no matter how much you may have tried to hide it – your inner beauty will rise to the surface today.

 

Dream Big Today

DREAM BIG

The Sun conjuncts Jupiter in Pisces today – a placement considered one of the most fortunate in Astrology.

Warmth, light, personality and will magnified by the planet of growth and optimism – whatever planted in the new moon will not only grow – it will grow in abundance so again – don’t dream small. Dream big if you’re going to dream at all.

The generosity and compassionate energy of Pisces and the ability to manifest and ground the abstract mean you’re wielding and weaving with pure creative energy so don’t let all of this potential to manifest slip through your fingers.

Today’s a great day to destroy something you love

Today's a great day to destroy something you love

Today’s a great day to destroy something you love as the conjunction of Mars and Venus which has been making hits since the middle of last year takes a darker turn.

Venus – what we want – Mars – how we chase what we want now includes Pluto – the lengths we’re willing to go to.

Lessons in love and passion now include demonstrations of power. Crimes of passion. The use of force to assume control. Relationship rage-quitting and damaged delivered that’s so devastating there’s no road back.

So if things are already strained you need to tread lightly. And bear in mind that exercises in power may not be the lessons you initiate or control.

Monsters And Men

Astrology Facebook page I’m on just archived itself – the admins have been overwhelmed with #BLM posts and it’s gotten so out of control that they’ve obviously invoked the riot act and shut shop. The page was always a little fast and dirty when it came to content and posts but it happened right when I was making a comment on someone’s clearly outrageous statement about Pluto being kinder than Saturn and dignity demanded a response. And in a way it confronted the intellectualizing I’ve been doing about the impact of the riots on local businesses. But I really don’t want to go down that rabbit hole with you.
At the start of the year, Saturn and Pluto went conjunct and it laid the stage for some big political events in 2020 – especially in terms of consolidation and exercises of power. Those stuffy old institutions have come out of the shadows to play hardball and there have been loud, angry, self-important voices ringing out on the global stage since this trade war began and before Twitter started fact-checking it’s tweets.
But then the retrogrades started kicking in and suddenly everything starts playing out like it’s scripted somehow in it’s perfection. I’ve seen someone describe 2020 as a movie written by Stephen King and directed by Tarantino and my word it’s the truth but it feels more like a series with a new, more explosive, cliff-hangy episode every month. And every episode has brought the fire and the rage closer to home.
We watched Covid19 probably longer than we should have because before we know it it was right here on our doorstep as we quarantine on our sofas watching Tiger King.
Then the retrogrades started kicking in. The really big retrogrades that demand we take a good, hard look at ourselves and confront those serious matters that define us as a people. Retrogrades that started switching the power from the start of 2020 off. Covid demanded we confront how we interrelate with one another but George Floyd has forced us to take a good hard look at ourselves. At what we believe and what we stand for.
Many haven’t liked that. Racism – institutional racism is a touchy topic and almost impossible to discuss without name calling. Even discussing his death is emotional so I won’t. I’ll respect your democratic right to feel the way you decide to feel about that. But we can both agree the USA looks like it’s on the brink of exploding as the retrogrades smother that plutocratic, capricious energy that dominated the global stage at the start of the year, making room for angrier, more rebellious energy.
Uranus goes retrograde in August, which suggests that this pressure cooker we’re in right now is going to start releasing steam. It promises a cooling down and some reflection. It promises peace. But that’s almost 3 months away and in this particular year that’s at least 3 seasons of Game Of Thrones. The really bloody middle ones more than the disappointing end ones.
It’s a peace that worries me because it will either be the calm before the storm or the silence after the fact. It worries me but like a train wreck I can’t look away. I feel like I want things to return to normal but I almost can’t remember what that feels like. And what kind of peace are we talking about? Who backs down or gets broken down?
Those little specks at the bottom of the screen you suddenly realize are people – I feel like one of them lately as you watch Godzilla and King Ghidorah level Tokyo. I’m over it – and I can’t wait for that 2020 astrological wrecking ball to be done with me too.
