ENHANCING YOUR ENERGY FIELD


What is our energy field?  Does it range in frequency?  What can we do to enhance its strength? 

Our energy field is our life’s force.  It is the energy that surrounds and permeates through our bodies.  It has been called our aura which can be seen by certain individuals as varying colours.  Our energy field can also be a reflection of what we expend outward during our daily life.  It varies in frequency by how we relate to our environment and mirrors that which we feel as a vibration.  It varies day to day depending on what thoughts we allow to transmit in our minds and how we feel about what it is we are experiencing in the moment.  Our physical wellbeing can also affect our energy field or is our physical wellbeing affected by our energy field?

Attitude plays a huge part in the process and our response to life is reflected in our vibration.  This vibration is constantly resonating out into the world.  Once again, we will use the image of a wave on the ocean which can be affected by weather or climate, (life circumstances) and passing vessels (information coming through).  We can be influences by the climate we live in and this climate (life circumstances) tends to influence our lives whether we are aware of it or not.  Once we become aware, we can take shelter from the tide (control our emotions and how we react to stimuli in our lives).

By channeling our focus in directions that add to our overall well-being and our immediate surroundings, we surge our energy field in these directions and can omit focusing on what we prefer not to follow or experience.  By focusing on love and compassion, we do not experience hate and indifference.  By nurturing love, we readily help those in need around us which adds to the energy field of love and peace.  By giving off this type of energy it will radiate from our core and will then be shared by those that meet us and this energy is also reflected into our environment.

Our energy field or vibes are a reflection of how we live our lives, how we view our lives and how we care for and aid those around us.  It radiates from us as do our moods.  For example, walk into a room where someone has just had an argument.  The saying goes “You could cut the air with a knife”.  Another example would be that gut feeling we get when we first meet someone.  We do not know this person but we certainly know if we would like to nurture a relationship with them or if we should simply walk away.  We can read each other’s energy fields if we are open to the energy.

Meditation and practicing visualization will push us in our direction of choice.  It can take time but we can open the door to perception and understanding and truth. 

There are countless energy fields in our world.  They may be calling us to join in with the conscious evolution that is occurring.  We can open our hearts and add to the loving energy so many fail to feel.  If we are focused on fear, we cannot feel love.  But if we are focused on love, we cannot hate.  Which energy do you choose to be a part of?

TRANSITING NEPTUNE TRINE NATAL MERCURY


Transiting Neptune is currently in Pisces, therefore, if it is trine Mercury in your chart, Mercury would have to be in a water element.  When allowing a seven to ten degree aspect ratio, your Mercury (if trine Neptune) is anywhere from 1 to 2 degrees to 18-21 degrees in either Cancer or Scorpio.  Those that are really sensitive to the influence of Neptune may even feel this energy beyond these specific degrees.  Neptune will transit as far as 14 degrees into Pisces later this year, so an influence at 23-24 degrees is not out of question.

Mercury has a tendency to take on the energies of any planet that it touches through transit or progression.  Therefore the planetary energies the sign the transiting planet is in and the houses that are being transited will play an important role in deciphering how these energies will influence your life.  You should also see if you have an aspect natally between these two planets as well as the aspects to Mercury in your birth chart as these will also play into the equation.

Neptune’s energies are often subtle and will reflect more through the sub-conscious channels than through conscious means, unless of course the individual is particularly sensitive to the influence of its energies.  Those with pronounced psychic abilities (and may I add that everyone has these abilities) will be particularly influenced by these Neptunian energies at this time.  Mercury is in charge of mental processing, including mental alignment, mental conception and interchange on a subconscious level.  Suffice to say that the mind will be heavily influenced during the meeting of these two energies.  Remember that Mercury aligns with any planet it touches and as a result the mystical inspirational impact of Neptune will play an important role in this encounter, particularly because transiting Neptune is in its natural sign of Pisces right now.

Inspiration can be realized and your spiritual connection will be intensified during this process.  You may experience more prophetic dreams and visualizations.  You may experience clairvoyant stimulus during this time.  The psychic channels are open or are opening and information and realization will come flowing into focus.  Psychic experiences are enhanced/increased, and you may find inspirational information being offered to you like never before, especially if you are of this mindset.  With the placements of your Mercury in either Cancer or Scorpio, we would say that your instinctual behaviour will resonate with what is going on from deeper channels.

You may want to uncover and explore these regions more than before, digging up forgotten information or new and reliable data, especially if you have your Mercury in Scorpio.  You may find that you are going through changes, and transformation to your life will be highlighted.  After this transit, you may not be the person you were before it began. This transit can last several years.  You may uncover hidden trauma that now needs to surface, be faced and dealt with.  This too can have a lasting effect on your emotional nature and clear headed understanding of what took place may be the result to what surfaces.  The mind wants to explore many regions and you are now much more adept to handling this.

If your Mercury is in Cancer much of the above will be part of the process and you may also find that your family and children become more open.  A closer tie can develop if you want this to happen.  The opportunities are endless and your timing is perfect for this to happen...It may take precedence in your life.  Mothering and caring for loved ones can become much more apparent and things flow easier and fluently. 

For those with psychological issues, healing can occur with profound effects.  In very rare instances psychotic breaks can occur.  Trines makes things flow and if there have been blockages in the past for good or for bad, trines can open the floodgates.  In most cases, trines speak of opportunities and bring easy flow to any obstruction, but those with mental illnesses can become overwhelmed with the flow of energies if they do not have healthy coping practices in place.  This is rare but these forces do allow energies to flow unobstructed.  Rest assured that for the majority of people life will open up in a positive manner.  Intuitive and inspirational messages will align themselves with understanding, and positive psychic feedback will be the outcome.

SOLAR ECLIPSE, FEBRUARY 26, 2017


We are having a solar eclipse today, February 26, 2017.  The eclipse occurs at 8 degrees of Pisces.  Those who have the Sun or Moon or any other planets or angles within 3 degrees of this degree will be strongly affected by this eclipse.  Check to see which house or angle is being affected in your own personal chart as this will be the area of life being affected.  Also look to the opposite house as this will also be areas of influence often stemming from others people’s influence.

The time frame of influence is said to last as long in years as the actual eclipse lasts in hours, with influences particularly strong in the first six months.  The effects can last for several years varying in strength depending on other planets touching these sensitive degrees. 

Pisces is a very sensitive sign and will be strongly affected by this eclipse.  Pisces is like a psychic sponge and pulls in energies from outside sources.  Pisces individuals have difficulties with borders and often take on energies of those around them and can be unable to separate themselves from these influences.  Pisces is a mystical sign and spiritual insight is often part of their evolutionary process.  Pisces seeks to align itself with oneness and gains understanding of these spiritual insights that are often revealing themselves.

Those with strong Pisces influences are kind-hearted individuals, who truly want to help those less fortunate than themselves.  Many are ego-less or in the very least are seeking ways to dissolve ego and to find it very difficult to deal with the harsh realities of life.  They are seekers of truth through mystical unfoldment and psychic awareness.

During this period, those within the influence will also experience a conjunction to transiting Neptune (the ruler of Pisces) from the transiting Moon and Sun.  They may experience breakthroughs in finding other worldly awareness and can establish their own boundaries between what is unseen and what is seen in this physical reality.  They may experience euphoric feelings of unity with their fellow brothers and sisters of humanity and also make connection with the spirit realm like never experienced before.

It will be very important during these times to also keep a firm grasp on physical reality and although life may appear to be mundane when working, sleeping and eating, it is imperative that you keep at least one foot on the ground.  After all, we live in a material world and it is necessary to pay attention to what takes place on this level of understanding as well.  Watch for allowing your imagination to take control.  Go by your intuition but make physical facts a part of this process.  If it sounds as thought it much be outlandish, it just might be.  There is a thin vail between spiritual insight and imaginative speculation, until you get a firm grip on both realities.

Many with tight contacts to Neptune in their charts have difficulty with challenging life conditions and even resort to hiding their head in the sand or pulling the proverbial rug over their heads.  Although reality can be harsh at times, we are not meant to run from the truth.  The truth often has magnificence within it and we can learn a lot from adverse life conditions.  Some with this influence may want to avoid the truth so much so they will resort to substance abuse with the simple aim to avoiding these harsh truths.  This is certainly not advisable.  Always adhere to what is real and even when life seems foggy it will always clear and you can reveal what needs uncovering when the timing is appropriate.

Some can develop hard to diagnose illnesses at these times.  This is largely due to the fact that they are not open to dealing with adversity, so over time they build protective shields.  The more we work at something, the more we build in strength and endurance.  Stamina comes from facing life as it is without running away.

This can be a miraculous time in your life if you are inclined to let down your guard and open the door to inspiration.  Let intuition be your guide.  Enjoy life and all its adventures, whether they be open avenues of love and inspirations or solid structures that need to be broken down so we can see what lies beyond these barriers.  It is yours to discover.  Open the door.

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SQUARE NATAL MOON


If your natal Moon is in either Gemini or Sagittarius transiting Neptune will be squaring this lunar position between 4 and 18 degrees.  Squares usually signify challenging conditions and when it touches the Moon, these challenges will be emotional in nature.  The Moon can also speak in terms of family and the home environment.  Because the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius are mutable signs, the potential for being able to adapt and change to these conditions is stronger than if these signs were fixed or cardinal.  All mutable signs are able to bend with the current of life and make alterations to suit the changing conditions often brought on by the Moon.

Since the energies of Neptune are the influencing tide of conditions current during this period (which can last the whole year if you have your Moon in these degrees), you may have difficulty understanding your emotions during this aspect and Neptune will be what is influencing the way you feel during this time.  You will strongly be influenced by any emotional experiences over this period and you may even take on the emotions of those around you.  It will be important for you to step back and examine why you feel the way you do during this aspect so that you can find ways to alleviate or at least understand the emotions you are experiencing.

Your emotions are on high alert. Your sensitivity and intuition is enhanced and at times subject to unreliable feedback.  Neptune has a tendency to colour events and it makes things rather cloudy, allowing your fertile imagination to have influence over how you see what is taking place in your life.  Those that have active minds will find it hard to rationalize events because of the emotional impact of these energies.  There will come a time after the transit has lost its influence that you will be able to make sense of what all has taken place.  As long as these energies are tied together, it will be challenging.

If you can find ways to allow the pure energies of Neptune’s influence to expand your consciousness, (which is also quite possible although usually not until you have gone through some trying conditions), you may find that your intuition can be reliable.  Try to feel these conditions rather than rationalize them.  Go by gut instinct and hunches.  These may provide you with clearer insight than trying to mentally make sense of it all.

You will undoubtedly feel intense ups and downs during this period, but it is important to remember that the greatest lessons in life come from tumultuous conditions.  You will more than likely understand your “feeling nature” in much greater detail and not be led so easily astray after these lessons have been taught.  You may also find that you are avoiding anything that is emotionally trying to your otherwise calm conditions.  Under some conditions, this is not a bad choice, although at this time you should certainly get in touch with your emotions.  If you run into problems dealing with current emotional conditions, seeking professional help would be a good choice.  At the very least share your feelings with someone close.  Beware of resorting to alcohol and drugs to remove yourself emotionally from any chaotic situation.  This can be exceedingly dangerous at this time.  Make an extra effort to correct or contend with life’s conditions during this aspect and do not try to run from the issues through substances abuse.

You will get through these times and come out much stronger.  Hold on for the ride and do not become over-whelmed by these conditions.  As with all of life experiences, this will pass as time goes by and we come out the other side much stronger and much wiser from the experience if we meet it head on.

BUILDING IN STRENGTH


Take a look to see what stage you currently are experiencing in life.  Do not judge.  Just note the facts. 

What have you learned over the past year and how has it affected you?  Do you feel stronger?  Are you more in touch? 

The inner self is always able to withstand any external stimuli.  This inner self has great resilience.  At times we may believe that we are regressing in the physical world, but in reality our outer personality may be dormant as we are strengthening our inner core. 

We are not referring to our higher self or soul.  That foundation of who we are is permanent and can be relied upon at anytime.  What we are referring to is the individual that you are building throughout the process of this life.  This inner self is the outer layers of the onion, if you will, that we are currently growing.  It is not the mind, as thoughts are generated through expectation or past experience, but the one that has been a spectator for all of these life experiences and is more adept at handling life’s struggles than our responsive self.

If you are currently feeling somewhat lost and life has you by the hand and is seemingly pulling you in all different directions, know that the fog will lift and the grip will release.  The warmth of the light will eventually burn off the fog and you will see clearly and you will gain resilience from your experience.  These trials and tribulations strengthen our resolve.... our belief in ourselves.  Through these harder lessons we gain momentum and we grow.  We are constantly learning through life’s experience and growth occurs through these experiences.  Without life lessons, we would stagnate.

Life is full of twists and turns and we should ride the wave.  Sometimes life moves along almost perfectly and other times life can be like a volcano either waiting to erupt or vigorously spewing lava.  Remember these times are beneficial.  Our thoughts about these experiences are what determine how we react to these events.  If we focus on the hard parts of the lesson, the lesson will be extremely hard.  If we focus on the benefits of the lesson, the lesson will be beneficial.  The choice is ours.  We can do a professional job using professional tools or we can do an amateur job and ignore the tools at hand.  The more we practice with the tools available, the more precise we become using them. 

Remember many of these life experiences have been put in place for our greater good and we are equipped to deal with these experiences either on our own or through asking for assistance.  We are never at the mercy of life, but we are at the mercy of our thoughts.  Be wary of negative thoughts.  They have no real benefit.  Live in the moment as much as possible.  The ego mind is silence when we are there and through that silence we can focus on what is important.

Can we take a moment to remind ourselves of the blessings that are coming our way, the blessings that are bestowed on us regularly in our day-to-day lives?  Pay heed to how life is good in so many different ways.  Stay focused on these things so that we can draw more of the same our way.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT NATAL MOON


Before we go into the definition of this aspect, it is important that you review the placement of Transiting Uranus as well as where the Moon is placed in your own personal natal chart.  These will be the areas of life that are affected by this transit.  The conjunction does not have to have negative effects if there is positive aspects between these two bodies in the natal chart, or if the Moon is very well aspected in the birth chart. 

The transit between the Moon and Uranus does suggest some change on an emotional level that can be quite disruptive, particularly if you have been following a ridged emotional pattern where you have not allowed your emotions to be released or expressed.  Any restrictive behaviour in terms of how you have been handling life from an emotional perspective is now subject to reckless and possible impulsive behaviour.  Your mood can vary considerably under this transit and you might find your emotions very hard to control.

Incidents involving women, particularly your Mother, can come under attack during this aspect.  Things intensify and your relationship may go through some struggles, or changes may come suddenly out of nowhere.  Sometimes you are the one orchestrating these behaviours, and other times it may stem from others.  This can involve women in general and in the case of men with this conjunction, they may find that they are attracted to women that may be eccentric or original in their behaviour.  Sometimes these women come into your life to help you move forward in ways that you may have been stagnating previous to this time.  Other times they are just disruptive and cause trouble to the normal routine, although things may have felt rather dull before this conjunction but they will certainly not feel that way now.

The Moon has to do with your emotional response and your emotional needs.  If you are supported in your life and you have been nurtured especially when you were young, your emotional expression would relay this to the outside world.  You may be nurturing yourself and want to look after others and play a mother role or a nurturer for them. 

If, however, your emotional upbringing was anything but smooth, you may have difficulties expressing your more sensitive side, especially if you have other factors in your chart suggesting this, such as strong Capricorn tendencies.  Things may change during this transit and you may have to deal with either being taken advantage of, or you may not responding well in emotional ways.  Change is what Uranus’ energies are about--required change and also freedom of expression.  If these have been hindered, this may be the time for such things to be reviewed and changed.

The Moon also has to do with your domestic life.  This could include your actual home or if you own property, your real estate might be subject to change such as a move or making changes within the home’s environment.  Some look for cottage property and some just do some remodeling to make their environment more comfortable. 

Watch for being too impulsive at this time.  Above all else, this is a time to truly get in touch with your feelings.

LIFE'S BEAUTY


Have you every purposely taken a close look at all that surrounds you?  Are there trees and gardens?  Are there nature trails nearby that you have taken advantage of?  Is there a body of water close by?  Are there farmers’ fields?  What types of shops and buildings are in your area?  Have you looked around your home and actually been thankful for all that is available to you? 

There is so much beauty that surrounds us yet so many of us spend our days busy listening to the babbling voice in our mind.  We miss the enjoyment of the moment and see very little of what is next to us. 

Have a look around you right now as you are reading this post.  I mean a really good look.  Don’t just scan your surroundings.  Focus to see all the little details in your surroundings.  Take them in and feel their presence.  Let them make an imprint.  Why ignore what is right in front of you?

Now go a step further.  Review your life itself, your children, your other half, your pets, your parents and brothers and sisters, all of your family whether blood or chosen, those whom you work with or see regularly at work. 

Now go even deeper and pay attention to those that you pass on the road, in the store, on your walk or in the movie theater.  Take it all in during the moment and let this “seeing” spill into your day.  Pay attention to it all.  Experience breathing in the air...actually feel the warmth of the air or the coldness of the air.  Experience how it feels on your skin.  Feel the warmth of the Sun.  Experience the stars.   Feel the energy of the Moon within you.  Take in the fragrances of all that surrounds you.

When people are on holidays, they take in much of their surroundings and experience life much more than when we are living our day to day life.  Why don’t we focus on everyday life just as we do while we are on holidays?  Each moment is special and holds its own magic.  We CAN open our eyes to that which we normally take for granted and feel life’s experience.  We can even feel life’s vibrations and our interaction with what is taking place in our lives if we place our focus there.  We can also experience intuition and a connection to all living things if we choose to pay attention to these energies.  This and so much more surrounds us each and every moment.  What are we missing?
The next time we feel life is offering us nothing, we should have a little peak at what is right in front of us.  If life feels difficult it is not because of the events that are taking place, it is due to our attitude of what is taking place.  All this that we fight will eventually pass but these events would be much easier to experience if we just accepted.  We are not suggesting that we allow ourselves to be a victim.  Quite to the contrary; we cannot allow ourselves to be victims.  We can take control of our reaction to life and insist that it will benefit us, not knock us down. 

When life is what we term as good, we can hold this energy in our hearts and be thankful.  Our hard times offer growth and our wonder moments provide us with happiness and peace.  Experience it all.  Time waits for no one.  We are only here for a short time in the grand scheme of things, but in the moment, we have eternity.  Gratitude and happiness are within our grasps always.  Take advantage of what life is offering but we have to recognize this to enjoy it.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT NATAL SUN


This aspect between Uranus and the Sun is a very fruitful and dynamic aspect.  It is an aspect with energies that are concerned with freedom of expression, without restriction, and with the ability to be who you are regardless of what others think.  In many ways, it is a new self-expression without limitations; free to be if you wish.  You are barred from any restrictions.  It is an opportunity to be more than you have been in the past, a chance to throw away any self-doubt and a chance to break barriers that have held you back.  If you have imposed limits on your self-expression, this will be the time when you can let them go.  If you need to make a break from the past, this will be the time when you move out into the world and become or allow your true self.

The Sun deals with life’s objectives and the ability to move forward with these opportunities.  Uranus will bring you surprising results if you dare to go the extra mile and are not afraid of standing out or being viewed as different.  You can make sweeping changes in your life based on what you want to do with it now.  Not much will hold you down unless you fear what might take place.  You will be your only limitations.

This offers a new start, a new beginning and freedom to move ahead in any new direction that life offers you.  You can be the one that makes these things happen but do not be afraid to push into new territories.  Even if you fall, you will be able to get back up, but you are your driving force and you decide what you want to happen.  Your goals and aspirations have the potential to expand and manifest themselves in new and inventive ways.  If you have been caught up in dull routines and wish for something new and exciting, this will be the time to take such actions.  Change is what this aspect speaks of, and if you are willing to allow, get ready as things can happen at the drop of a hat.  Swiftness is common and you can expect the unexpected.
You have to be careful at this time as people tend to rush and make rash decisions and sometimes accidents can happen.  But as long as you think before you act, you should be just fine.  Your energy levels might be very high at this time, and pushing yourself beyond your limits is not advised.  Don’t take chances with your health and look after your body’s needs.

You may find opportunities to advance in your career especially if you have good aspects to the MC or Ascendant.  You may attract unconventional acquaintances at this time that help to facilitate the changes taking place in your life.  Enjoy them.  They may not be around for long.  You may find that the people who interest you now will be quite different from what you have been accustomed to previous to this time.  They will, however, bring adventure and something new along with them if you allow them to enter your life.

ORACLE CARD READING TESTIMONIAL

I felt that Peter really connected with me and my concerns about where my life is going and what my focus needs to be at this time. He gave me a great reading that was very detailed. It was my first reading and he took his time and explained everything. I didn’t feel rushed at all.

I got information that showed me my strengths and my challenges as I walk my path. I have always sensed these things but was afraid to step into the light. Peter has given me the information that I needed to hear and now, it’s up to me to step up my game and honour my spirit instead of being lost in ego.

I am so grateful to Peter for being out there and channeling this information in such a clear and empowering way. 

Besides that, it was also just so inspirational to me to see someone who takes his craft very seriously and is actually living what is so obviously, his calling.

Thank you, Peter!

SUN IN PISCES


The Sun moves into the sign of Pisces on February 19 in 2017. 

Those with their Sun in Pisces often have focused energies on serving a higher purpose.  Many are mystically inclined and those that are not given to such predispositions are, at the very least, very open minded and willing to learn.  They understand on an intuitive level that there is more to life than the so called usual day-to-day activities such as working, sleeping and eating.  Those with a heavy Pisces influence in their charts are in search of life’s real meaning.

Pisceans can be rather dreamy, even vague and can be quite changeable and adaptable to life’s situations.  Pisces is a mutable, water sign making these individuals versatile, moody and emotionally intense. 

As this is the final sign of the zodiac, many Astrologers believe that they have experienced each of the other signs through past life reincarnation.  Because of this, they are able to accept all people as equals and are inclined to want the best for everyone.  This vision of others may be considered by some to be somewhat na├»ve, although this is not the case.  Pisceans just have a great love for humanity as a whole and are subject to being at the aid of those that are experiencing difficulties in life.  They are kind, considerate and compassionate when it comes to their dealings with others.

Their minds are deep and reflective, and they are deeply affected by their overly sensitive, emotional nature.  They “feel” long before they think and they rely on their innate understanding produced from their own personal experiences. 

Pisceans do, however, have great difficulties when it comes to dealing with life’s harsh realities, sometimes hiding their heads in the sand and avoiding difficulties if at all possible.  Some are so challenged in this area that their need to escape leads them to alcohol and drug abuse.  Some Pisceans could even be considered self-delusional.  Self-deception can become a vice that they depend on to survive the challenging life conditions.

Pisces individuals can be very imaginative and they can use their sensitivities to help others.  Many have healing potential, especially once they learn to heal themselves.  Many are quite talented in the arts, music, and teaching can be a profession that appeals to them.  Their compassion and kind hearts often brings them in contact with other people that suffer.  They instinctively understand this suffering as they have experiences in these areas.  Although they are inclined to experience the harsh side of life at times, they can be resilient especially when they learn to focus their attention on the experience rather than run away from these life events.  Pisceans would make great counsellors, especially with drug addiction and alcoholism as they understand what true addiction is.  Once they learn to face life head on, they will often bounce back stronger than ever and use this knowledge they have learned not only for themselves but also for others.

One of Pisces’ best qualities is their compassionate nature and they will gladly help others, some even “allow” others to take advantage of their gentle nature.  Once they see through the illusions that some people attempt to create around them, they can be quite hurt.  Their feelings run deep. 

Pisces individuals also have to learn not to take on other people’s energies.  Often they experience feelings of depression or stress and can’t understand why they are feeling that way.  If they cannot explain why they are experiencing what they are feeling, it would be wise for them to look around as they will surely find what they are experiencing actually stemming from someone else. 

Pisces’ love knows no bounds, and they truly feel for others.  They offer themselves up through pure kindness to those in need.

Much of our description of Pisces will depend greatly on the placement of the other planets in the birth chart.  Because of Pisces’ sensitivity and because it is such a gentle sign, these individuals will be affected by other more powerful character traits located in the rest of the birth chart.  What we have described however are the deep true characteristics of a strong Pisces individual.

GOING THE EXTRA MILE

It is said that if you are going to do a job…any job, always do your best.  It does not matter what others think.  Their opinions are simply that, “an opinion”.  It can be difficult to be on your toes when it comes to doing the best you can, but how can you truly be satisfied with what you do unless you give it your all.

The end result is not as important as the effort put forth.  We are human and we will never do everything perfectly but we can give it our best shot.  Do not be too critical when you do your own personal review.  We cannot ask for anything more than our best.  

Putting out our best effort can and should include our job regardless of the type of work we do.  We may feel that our job is unimportant.  Remember this is just an opinion as well.  If it were not important it would not exist. 

When we give our best, we feel better about what we do regardless of what it is.  This can be especially important when it comes to meeting the needs of those around you.  Family and friends deserve your best effort and remember, what you put out comes back to you.  We will come across those that do not seem to have gratitude but that it their journey not ours.

Most important, do we do our best for ourselves?   Do we treat ourselves with respect (without ego being involved)?  Are we grateful for our own capabilities, our accomplishments, etc? 

Believe in yourself.

What we do in our “everyday life” will have a profound effect on those around us as well as on self.  When we give ourselves completely, even to what we consider the mundane daily routines, we can feel good about what we do and our efforts. 

Life’s daily circumstances sometimes will dictate just how great the results of our efforts may be but do not be too critical on yourself.  Do your best and be the best person you can be.  Everything else will fall into place.

TRANSITING URANUS SQUARE NATAL ASCENDANT


Transiting Uranus square the natal Ascendant can affect you in very personal ways.  It quite often involves relationships, your occupation (especially if Uranus is also making an aspect to the MC), your home and family (particularly if Uranus is also making an aspect to your IC).  There may be great challenging condition linked to all or some of these life areas.  Uranus is always about moving out of restrictive conditions in life--anything holding you back and stifling your evolution on some level is subject to changing conditions through Uranus’ influence.

Uranus may also bring people into your life that initially may appear quite different than those you are accustomed to being with and these people may help to facilitate some change that perhaps should have taken place some time ago. 

This square can be quite disruptive when it comes to close personal friendships and especially with your marriage partner.  Some relationships break up all together during this time while those that are built on more solid ground will still go through some needed changes, but remain intact after this transit is over.

This transit could also affect your home environment.  Some individuals with this aspect may redecorate the home, while others may seek a new place to live.  This may cause some problems as things under Uranus’s influence seem to happen quite suddenly and often when least expected.  Old patterns in life which a short while ago seemed quite appropriate are now subject to great scrutiny and also might see great changes.  What once was, no longer seems to suit life’s purpose or seems to be stifling you.  You will see some much needed changes to your life.

Sometimes people come into your life and they are behind these sudden changes that take place.  These individuals may be the spring board that initiate the changes that are necessary, and you may find that sometimes they vanish from your life as quickly as they came into it as they have fulfilled their purpose.  They are the catalyst for change and sometimes without these people coming into our lives we would remain stagnant for longer periods of time and as a result, very little in terms of growth occurs.

Although this aspect can be quite disruptive, it should not be considered negative.  These changes and the need to break free and start anew or change direction is actually just what is needed.  Those that know you well may have trouble figuring out who you are becoming and may not agree with what you are trying to implement into your life.  They may feel that your actions are somewhat rash and impulsive and often things happen without giving anyone notice.  This can be quite upsetting for those that know you as steady and reliable.  There is a new you emerging and those that are not open to that individual may have to find ways to accept what you are becoming. If not, they may find that they are removed from your life, as their companionship now no longer serves any real and viable purpose.

You are more of a free spirit at this time and in many cases after this transit has completed its cycle what you knew as “normal life” no longer exists and a new course has been set in motion.  It may take some time to fully appreciate what has taken place, but the changes that were set in motion during this aspect are usually quite beneficial.  If at all possible, try not to jump into situations and think things out before you make a move.  If life has been dull or you feel stuck and complacent, however, you just might need to make the change that is presenting itself during this aspect.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

The definition of LOVE is the intense feeling of deep affection for another person or living thing.  

There are so many different forms of love…. the love given to a partner, a child, a friend, a stranger in need.  Each and every living being and animal that exists offers an opportunity to express and share love.  

There is also another form of the love.  One that is most often forgotten and yet is quite important; this love is the love for self.

Take a moment and reflect on the wonders of your life with all of its complexities, your friends and the loved ones you are and were so fortunate to share this existence with.  Can we utilize this day set aside for “love” without focusing on material exchange or money spent but by sharing our presences with those that we love.  

We can enhance our life’s experience by showing the love we have for others, without measure.  For the individuals that hold a special place in our heart, why not confirm our affection for them today.  Then take it one step further to allow this sentiment to be expressed each and every day of the year through a special gesture or word. 

Just as important, can we not take this opportunity to spread our love to those we may not know - strangers we meet along our path?  There are many among us that are alone and in need of a loving gesture no matter how small.  Create a ripple effect that is generated by one small gesture or one small action of love. 

Today can be the beginning of an endless expression.  We can regularly do something meaningful for our loved ones without it being a special day.  We can express our love in our own special way on a day that those that we care about would never expect it.  We can become spontaneous and act on that little whim which surfaces from time to time.  These impromptu moments of showing we care are the most special moments.

February 14 is a day celebrated by many lovers but if you were to take the time to read the legends, you may questions why, as the story does not have such a happy ending.

We can celebrate love, romantic or otherwise, every day.  Life itself is a celebration of love and we share this planet with every living thing in existence--even plant’s life thrives when shown love.  The magnificence of this life carries with it the sharing of love in many shapes and forms.  We simply need to open up to the beauty and love that is generated around us and within us, each and every day!

As we reach out today, take time to reflect on the love that surrounds us and then on what we can do to express and be a part of this beautiful and natural process.  Love each other without exception.  Give special thanks for the love that envelops you.  Never lose sight of the importance and deep ingrained meaning that life provides.  Release the love that grows from within.  It will be returned tenfold.  Why not nurture this natural process of love and allow it to grow, first from within and then to overflow.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT NATAL SATURN


The transit of Uranus to Saturn can push us to review some of the structures that have been built up over time.  This aspect will make you re-evaluate conditions and decide what should be left as is with only minor changes, and what needs to be replaced or even pushed aside.  This can be very tough because, as creatures of habit, we like safe and comfortable conditions in life.  Uranus arrives to change these things and pushes us in new directions which eventually will provide greater freedom and more room to simply be yourselves.

The release of these energies can be quite disruptive and often unexpected.  In many cases you will not be prepared for these events and the stress and tension may be difficult to handle.  The stress and any tension that seems to stay with you is as a result of your not allowing the needed changes to happen.  Fighting what needs to change is futile and the less you attempt to challenge these conditions (allow them to develop as they need to) the more smooth things will go, especially on you emotionally.

Saturn represents structures in life that have been built up over time that provide you with a sense of comfort, but these structures have been put in place to make you feel safe.  These structures may now be standing in the way of progress and they are no longer serving any viable purpose except that they bring you comfort.  You have probably been reviewing these things for some time now and a part of you recognizes the need for change and another part is frightened by this idea.  Things that are now considered stale will be re-evaluated and are subject to great change.  There may be feelings or issues that relate to freedom and the ability to actually become that persona you are evolving into.  Something needs to happen in order for you to change from caterpillar to butterfly and the energies of Saturn stand in the way.

This can be a very volatile time in your life.  This may affect your relationships with others, your marital status, your occupation and many other aspects of your life.  You know that life needs change and now will be the time.  These changes may come about in unusual ways and during times when you are least expecting them.  They may be very sudden in their nature and because of this you may not have a lot of time to become accustomed to what is taking place.  Let go and do not fight the process.  Acknowledge to yourself that these changes are necessary.  Deep down inside you know some action is required.  If this is a more gentle transition, you will just have to make mental adjustments and minor changes, but be sure to move forward, as over time you will realize, even if just subconsciously, that the changes at hand are exactly what you will need in the near future.

LUNAR ECLIPSE/FULL SNOW MOON IN LEO, FEBRUARY 10/11, 2017


The Penumbral* Lunar Eclipse will begin at 5:34 p.m. EST today, February 10, 2017, and be at its maximum at 7:43 p.m. EST. 

With an eclipse there is always a full moon.  A Full Moon defines the culmination of efforts that we have made towards our focused objectives.  We reap the fruits of our labours and collect what is rightfully ours.  If we put forth the appropriate effort, we can achieve considerably during this cycle. 

As mentioned during this Full Snow Moon, there will be a penumbral lunar eclipse.  An eclipse will have a lasting effect on us for as many months as the eclipse lasts in hours.  So if it lasts 3 ½ hours, its energies will affect us for 3 ½ months.

This eclipse will be in the sign of Leo at 22 degrees.  Any planets or angles in your birth chart that are close to this degree will also be affected.  This eclipse will bring to the surface our leadership abilities and at the same time enhance our caring nature.  We will want to nurture others during this time.  Some might consider our honest and forthright approach as a result of this full moon/eclipse influence as “tough love”.  This lunar cycle actually works to make you strong and whether this comes from internal sources or from someone else, you may not always like what you hear, but the energies are there to make you stand up for yourself in the face of adversity, if need be.

You may want a certain amount of control over life’s situations, especially if you have Pluto or Saturn in or close to the same degree.  Watch for a strong ego drive if power is what you search for.  Power should be directed outward where you can help others.  Your own needs, although important, might have to go by the wayside as caring for others is part of this process.  Do not look for ego fulfillment either and do not ask for anything in return.  Flow with the energies at hand.

Uranus is also in trine to this configuration which could bring out the inventive side of our nature or events.  You might discover parts of yourself that was previously hidden and although these characteristics could be considered somewhat eccentric, nonetheless they are viable character traits that might serve a real purpose right now.  You may find that you go in new directions and try to cut off those that tend to hinder your progress.  Breaking free of restrictions is part of the process and beginning anew is in your sights.  Watch for becoming overly rebellious and too unconventional in your own personal beliefs. You may not be fully understood by others and your visions may be futuristic. 

Jupiter is also part of the unfolding process and is in sextile to this configuration.  This adds potential to the overall conditions and offers some luck in achieving your goals.  Make sure that your focus is selfless in nature and that the outcome of this focus will affect the many and not just the few. 

Jupiter offers expansion and highlights growth on many levels, especially where religious doctrines are found or when spirituality is what you are looking for.

Enjoy this Leo Full Snow Moon/ Penumbral Lunar Eclipse.  Make the best of the energies.  It offers great potential for those evolved enough to find its true meaning.  Check to see what houses are affected by this position of the Moon.  The house will provide you with details about what area of life will be involved during this time.

IF IT IS NOT YOURS, DO NOT OWN IT


It can be very difficult when you see anyone going through a difficult if not debilitating experience.  We each seem to have these moments.  It certainly is wonderful knowing that there are those around us that will always be of assistance when we are in need.  At times, when we lose our focus, life can sometimes seem very unfair and it is easy to get swept away by these circumstances when we allow ego to lead the way.  There are times when we feel we cannot come up with the needed answers and an inkling of relief seems very distant.

If you find yourself assisting someone through one of these tumultuous life events, remember not to allow yourself to get caught up in their emotions.  Helping someone does not mean that you own the event.  You cannot be of assistance if you are weighed down by their burden.  Many of us can easily get caught up in other people’s issues because of our compassion and we end up taking on more than just a roll of assisting.

There are some that are so psychically inclined that they allow other people’s issues to become their own, without even knowing it.  They can feel depressed and not understand the root of these feelings.  If you do not understand why you are feeling what you are feeling, the odds are the emotions are yours but the reason they are there is not.  It is important to take inventory of what you are feeling so that you are not carrying around someone else’s baggage.  We are here to reach out to those in need, to offer our help and emotional support and provide an ear or shoulder when needed; however do not make these issues your own.

Allowing someone to unload and to talk is probably one of the greatest gifts you can give.  Be wary of taking sides.  There are always alternative ways of looking at issues.  Affirmative feedback has its place however.

Send love and support and let them carry on with their journey.  We can only assist those who want help.  We have to honour other people’s wishes and opinions even when they differ from our own. 

We will always be friends in need, but we are never meant to carry someone else’s burden.

THE ABSENCE OF SPECIFIC ASPECTS IN THE BIRTH CHART


Planets in the chart represent energies which are released through the houses in which the planets are located.  The houses represent the areas of life that will be affected by this energy. 

When major aspects are missing in the birth chart, minor aspects can help to alleviate the missing energies which would otherwise be available if major aspects were in the chart.  When there are no sextiles or trines in a chart then quintiles, semi-sextiles and even noviles can help overcome these shortages.  When there is a lack of squares or oppositions, the semi-square and in many cases the inconjunct will help to offset this lack of energy.  There will, however, have to be several of these minor aspects to compensate for the major aspects that are missing.

Those that are lacking in conjunctions (which bring emphasis into the area of life the touch) have a challenging time focusing their energies, particularly when they are working on a project.  They have a tendency to become scattered and need a goal or purpose to focus their attention on.  Follow through is very important and this can be a challenge as they may lose interest or be swayed in another direction before completing the task at hand.

Sextiles speaks of opportunities that come into life either through self-initiation or by life seemingly pointing us in the right direction.  They also stimulate mental activity and bring creative forces to the forefront.  With a lack of sextiles, many find that they have to actively pursue intellectual activities and find ways unique to them to communicate these abilities.  Expressing themselves freely through communication will create useful actions that can lead to accomplishments in life.  They need to talk to others in order to recognize opportunities coming into their life.

Squares tend to create difficulties and put stumbling blocks in the way so that we have to push ourselves and in turn, builds strength, endurance and nurture a belief in our own abilities to push through adversity in our lives.  Those that are lacking in squares tend to take the easy path rather than push through hardship for the purpose of growth.  When confronted with crisis, these individuals tend to have a difficult time adjusting or moving through the challenge.  They actually have to push themselves and find ways to overcome the adversity that stands in their way.  In turn when using this approach, they are able to face the challenging conditions that often come our way.

When trines are absent in a chart, these people tend to be faced with a lot of challenging conditions in life and use a lot of energy trying to adjust to these conditions and/or to repair the damage that sometimes occurs.  They use great energy during these periods often leaving them feeling worn out.  They need to go at life a little easier and find ways to relax and go with the flow even when life seems to throw hurtles their way.  Meditation and learning to move through life in a more temperate manner will do wonders for these individuals.

Oppositions always suggest that there are others who have an influence in the equation at hand.  When there is a lack of oppositions in the horoscope, these people are often quite in touch with themselves and they are comfortable meeting their own needs.  Sometimes these individuals become overly self-reliant and need to open the door so that others people have an impact in their learning process.  Expanding their horizons by allowing others to assist in this process will widen their personal scope on most everything in life.  They should welcome a fresh look and a fresh idea.  There are times when others help us develop into ourselves and those lacking Oppositions would benefit from this and not have such a limited perspective on who they think they are.
