The latest news on what's happening in the universe - Featuring our favorite Astrologers
Have you heard? The word is out that there’s an Eclipse coming up on the 30th of November, and in the astrology world, everyone’s getting ready for a rollercoaster ride! Eclipses are times of major shifts, as if the Universe is pressing her foot on the gas pedal and urging us to go faster – much faster!
So, instead of feeling as if we are being tumbled about in the washer, how can we work with these intense energies?
Love makes the world go around, right? Right. Since the dawn of time, songs, poems and books have been written about love. Love uplifts, love hurts, love grows, love dies. No one, no matter how modern the world gets, ever really gives up on love for long, and deep down, we all long for it in one way or the other.
Are you ready for Scorpio Season? Are we ever ready? This time of year is one of the deepest, most interesting dives into the netherworld. Coming from the sunshiny – everything-is-perfect Libra Season, we are more than ready for things to get nitty-gritty and dramatic!
So, from 24th October until 23rd November, be prepared for a little bit of transformation!
Can you feel it? Communication going awry, intense conversations happening…? Kind of like everything you do and say is being misunderstood?
Yep, that’s Mercury Retrograde for you. By now, most of you know what this planetary period is all about – and if you don’t, well, in a nutshell, it’s when the planet of communication appears to move backwards due to slowing down in his orbit, a bit like when you’re in a car, and the car next to you slows down and it looks like it’s going backwards.
Are you ready to take a deep dive? Mercury heads into the shadowy realms of Scorpio on 27 September, 2020. Moving from an airy, sometimes-shallow sign of Libra, Mercury in this water sign is intuitive, intense and transformative!
This Mercury in Scorpio Season is also Mercury Retrograde Season – a double whammy of diving deep! Mercury will be here for quite some time, crossing briefly back into Libra, and then into Scorpio again.
The 12th house. Much maligned, feared and misunderstood in astrology, this house has always had scary connotations, such as “self-undoing”, “addiction”, “bad spirit”, endings, loss and isolation.
It’s understandable, then, why this house is often the most asked about for students new to astrology. Sometimes, at worst, students may even feel victimized by planets in the 12th house, helpless to stop the stream of destruction that seems to issue from this dark and terrifying place.
But what is the 12th house about, really?
Astronomers are always discovering new celestial wonders and astrologers are always documenting and understanding the framework of how to work the magic of these new "beings" into light. After all, Chiron wasn't even discovered until 1977 and Pluto until 1930. The basic components of transformation and healing were only discovered in the past century!
Furthermore, we as a collective continue to rediscover our integration of the divine feminine (once very prominent in ancient types but then suppressed). One such area is asteroid goddesses!
Let's take a look at 5 of these beauties, their archetypes, and why they are important for us to plot in our charts.
I don't know about you, but lately I can't seem to get something done from start to finish! Either I feel impatient to last through the whole thing, can't find the time to get to it, or just feel plumb frustrated by how slow or monotonous the task feels. Sometimes it has me feeling like…
On 7th August, 2020, Venus, planet of love, beauty and creativity, moves from airy Gemini into sensitive Cancer.
She’s been visiting Gemini for quite some time and even went Retrograde in this intelligent sign – and she finally shifts her focus into the more empathetic sign of Cancer. Sure, we had fun when Venus had her fun in social Gemini, but now she wants something a little more….personal.
On the 4th of August 2020, Mercury finally moves out of watery Cancer, where he’s made his home for absolutely forever, into fiery Leo! This is oh-so-exciting, especially for those of us who have felt, well, bogged down of late mentally.
Mercury in Leo gives us a time where we are uber-positive and looking on the bright side!
