MOON SIGN and HOUSE POSITION



In our posts on June 22 and 25, 2018, we focused on the Moon and aspects to it.  June 27 we looked at the Moon sign and the effects of the element it is in.  Today, we will focus on the Moon and its house position.

The Moon’s influence certainly is different depending on what house it is located in.  As most of us understand, houses are areas of life in the Astrology chart and our Moon’s placement by sign and house will determine how we react to life’s events in a specific way.
 
Someone with their Moon in the second house at birth will find that finances and security are key factors in their life.  They may spend a lot of time preparing for their future and their retirement plans might begin early in life, especially if they have their Moon in an earth sign such as Taurus. 

Someone with their Moon in the tenth house might differ from someone with their Moon in the second house as they would be emotionally concerned with their rise in the material world (as would the second house) but those concerns for someone with the Moon in their tenth house would be through ways connected to their career and public standing in the community. 

Someone with their Moon in the seventh house might be emotionally drawn to relationships of significance and may place a great amount of importance on their choice of marriage partner. 

Moon in the eleventh house might find solace and emotional contentment with close friends or groups of individuals that are of like-mind.

Of course, the picture would become more clear when we look into the angles between the Moon and other planets as the angles will certainly colour our emotional expression and our ability to express these.  So not only do we have to look at our Moon by sign and house, we also have to look at the Moon by aspect in our natal chart to get the full picture of this emotional area of our life.

While the sign position is very important and the house position is the area of life where our emotional vibrations can be released or expressed or hindered because of sign or aspect, we also have to remember the natural rulers of each house.  Beginning with the first house, the natural ruler is Aries and the second house is ruled by Taurus and continuing and finally ending with the twelfth house which is naturally ruled by Pisces.  These natural rulers play a significant role in determining our emotional expression.  Someone with their Moon in the first house regardless of the Moon’s sign positioning will also have similar tendencies as someone with their Moon in the sign of Aries.  Someone with their Moon in the fifth house will have some similar tendencies as someone with their Moon in the sign Leo and so forth.

The Moon can be very complicated in its expression, but with practice and experience we can become acquainted with our natal Moon’s positioning and its expression. 

Each planet and luminary in our Astrology charts carry their own energies.  The signs and houses play just as a significant role with each of these as well.  It should be noted that outer planets’ house positions are actually more relevant as the planet’s positioning by house and sign are areas that will affect generations in a similar manner and as a result, have a much broader influence.

FULL MOON - JUNE 28, 2018



We are experiencing the Full Moon in Capricorn (6 degrees) today, June 28, 2018 (right around midnight).  As many of our reader know, the Full Moon (called the Strawberry Full Moon this month) is a time to harvest the seeds planted earlier in our garden of life. 

Transiting Saturn (the teacher) is making a tight conjunction to this 6 degree mark.  The North Node (Your Path) is also tightly aspecting this Full Moon in quincunx and Uranus (the awakener) is making a trine.

With the Full Moon being in the sign of Capricorn, this can be a time of great achievements.  This could represent a time of reaching your goals and objectives; however, much depends on the amount of preparation you carried out and the effort used to fulfill these intentions.  If you have been diligent in your efforts and made sure that all the preliminary details are in order and you did not take any short cuts, the potential is quite good for a viable outcome.  However, if you are ill prepared, you will probably have to make some alterations and adjustments in order to move ahead.

Capricorn’s energies are often linked with objectives focused in business and enterprise.  Although your goals may have been a long time coming to completion, it should be worth the wait.  Capricorn can be very rewarding with diligent efforts being put forth.  It often brings recognition for hard work and disciplined and organized efforts.  Much, of course, will depend on the overall conditions in the birth chart with regards to this placement.  If there are many challenging aspects to this conjunction then things can be delayed in some way or obstructions may be in place.  If this placement has many favorable aspects, however, then the outcome can flow very easily and the chances for success are heightened.

The tight conjunction with transiting Saturn often brings delays and things may seem to be moving at a snail’s pace.  Hard work is emphasized and there will be hurtles to overcome.  Saturn makes you work for your rewards but with dedication and appropriate application, its rewards often offer stable and secure structures that will stand the test of time.  Your superiors will most likely be involved in bringing your goals to fruition.  Your efforts will have to include making a favorable impression with your superiors.

With the tight quincunx to the transiting North Node, the future path should show a glimmer of light and you may feel as though you are finally moving in the right direction, although often some adjustments are necessary.  You may receive some advice from people that can propel you forward and you may find yourself in the right place at the right time with someone who may have helped you previous to this time.

The trine to transiting Uranus offers up new directions, futuristic opportunities, a different path and often something comes out of nowhere that can help with you goals.  Uranus is very unpredictable in its behaviour and it may be very difficult to know just where these new directions might be stemming from or heading towards.  Sometimes assistance comes from unexpected sources.  Sometimes a push in a different direction is what is needed to achieve the success you are looking for.  Much will depend on the natal positioning of transiting Uranus as well as the natal placement of Natal Uranus.  An overall view of the chart is recommended to see the full picture.

Nonetheless, take advantage of the energies that will be available during this full moon.

MOON SIGN AND ELEMENTS



In our posts on June 22 and 25, 2018 we focused on the Moon and aspects to it.  Today we will look at the Moon sign and the effects of the element it is in. 

The Moon, as defined by Noel Tyle, is our reigning need.  It is our emotional expression, as well as our link to family and the past.  It defines our mother and often the aspect between the Sun and Moon describe the relationship between our parents.  This in turn affects us in many ways and our emotions are included in this influence.  The Moon can speak of our past and early upbringing and will also speak about our relationship with our mother which is often defined by aspects to the Moon from other planets.

The sign position of our natal Moon plays a significant role in our emotional reactions to life’s events and is representative of our emotional disposition.  For example, the difference between someone with their Moon in a water sign and someone with their Moon in an air sign can vary significantly in their emotional expression.  Those with their Moon in a water sign are usually very sensitive and feel their way through life.  Those with their Moon in an air sign are sensitive to emotional interaction from a mental perspective and can be emotionally stimulated by their thoughts and verbal expressions.

Someone with their Moon in Pisces (element of water) would be considered very sensitive to their surroundings and would easily pick up on the vibrations of those around them as well as their environment.  Those with the Moon sign cannot help but express themselves in an emotional manner.  They have no issues with the release of emotions.  Some will consider their emotional state rather weak or hard to control.  Remember, however, that if there are other more strong influences in the chart these characteristics can be watered down.  It is important to look as the Astrology chart as a whole.

Someone with their Moon in the Air sign of Aquarius would relate to their emotional experience through logic and come from a mental perspective, possibly analysing their emotions.  They would also keep their emotions on the inside.  Some feel that those with their Moon in Aquarius are emotionally restrained and withdrawn.  They may even seem emotionally cold and would have a hard time expressing themselves with a natural emotional reaction to any life event.

Those with their Moon in Earth signs are practical when it comes to emotional interaction and wish to define themselves constructively in emotional terms, particularly those with their Moon in the sign of Virgo. 

While those with their Moon in Aquarius are withdrawn or unable to express their emotional expression, those with their Moon in Capricorn react similar and appear cold in their emotional expression.  The difference between someone with their Moon in Aquarius and someone with their Moon in Capricorn is that those with the Aquarius Moon might actually be emotionally diluted because of their mental reasoning abilities, while those with their Moon in Capricorn are actually very emotional but prefer to keep these intense feelings on the inside.  They want to appear emotionally in control.

Those with their Moon in a fire sign such as Aries would have a more aggressive emotional expression sometimes releases through anger or they could be passionate with their emotional release whether in a loving nature or a defensive one.  These individuals can be quite abrupt with their emotional expression.

Which element is your Moon found in?

The Moon’s influence certainly is different depending on what Astrology sign (element) it is in.  June 29, 2018, we will focus on the Moon and its house position.

GUIDING FORCES



We have had a number of clients tell us that they feel as though their journey is being hindered in one way or another.  They feel weighted down and overwhelmed by life’s events which they feel they have no control over. 

It is important to remember that these stages or events in life are not punishments.  They are, however, valuable lessons from which we can experience our greatest growth. 

Because of their attitude, they can feel at the mercy of life and they take the events personally.  As a result, they react in ways that do little to resolve the issues or that take advantage of the lesson at hand.  Their reactions do, however, compound their feelings of moving backwards in their growth. 

What should they do to relieve these tensions?  How can they find hope when everything seems too harsh to deal with?

There are many tools available to us during our trials and tribulations.  It is important, however, to recognize that they are never alone.  There are countless others that walk this journey with us and many others have had or are having experiences exactly as we are experiencing.  Some of these individuals that are with us are angels in earthly bodies and then there are those that are not of this physical world.  These are guiding forces beyond this earthly dimension that can be relied upon.  They are always available to us and we need to realize that we are not alone. 

Quiet your mind.  It can be quite difficult in the beginning but with practice it does get easier.  Again, quiet your mind.  Listen to that gentle, quite voice.  Listen to the inspirational messages that are always being passed on.  Pay heed to those quiet messages for the information they contain is powerful.

Our guides are with us always and working for our benefit.  They are always pushing us in the best possible direction but most of us ignore them because their message is so subtle.  When we are most emotional, the message can be clear if we quiet our minds.  The majority of us tend to get so caught up in events and emotions that we do not notice the gentle nudges that points us in the direction of a solution.  Their guidance or assistance is never overwhelming or forceful.  As we learn to listen to our guides, their voices can become much more direct, and we begin to realize that it is important to listen.  Even with these more clear messages, the delivery is still subtle.  It always comes through in a gentle manner and love is in their expression.

Recognize that we are never alone.  Our guides are always with us. 

We are one of the many sparks that form the fire of life we call source.  If we are all sparks of this one fire, who truly then are our guides?

THE MOON, Part II



THE MOON'S ASPECTS TO OTHER PLANETS IN THE NATAL CHART


On June 22, 2018 we wrote about the Moon’s influence in our astrology chart.  Today we will continue our focus on the Moon and its effects. 

The energies of the Moon in the birth chart and the aspects it makes to other planets play a significant role from an emotional point of view.  It is also a good indicator of our nurturing capabilities.  The aspects between the Moon and other planets are far reaching and needs to be deciphered carefully.

The aspect itself will define much of the energies shared between the aspecting planet and the Moon.  Conjunctions (0 degrees) in particular are emphasized and are very powerful agents for emotional release.  They merge the energies of the planet in question and the Moon.  As you can imagine the energies of Saturn and the Moon combined, for example, will be quite different from the energies of Venus and the Moon.  The interlinking sign, as well as the house position will be how these energies are released.

The opposition (180 degrees) always involves others, while the square (90 degrees) usually represents some challenge to overcome.  Both are generally considered difficult, although the energies are inclined to push us to find solutions to the issues suggested by the planet, the house and sign positions of both energies involved.  Squares in particular have obstacles and challenges attached to them and push us to find a resolution to the issue at hand.

Trines (120 degrees) and sextiles (60 degrees) often suggest easy flow and opportunities.  Once again, we must take into consideration the signs (especially the Moon’s sign position) and the house positions of both the Moon and the planet involved as this will help define how these energies might unfold. 

Now although Saturn for example is challenging, even with easy aspects, it also provides structure and security.  We learn to assimilate these energies and work constructively with them.
Saturn can provide a suitable resolution and eventual provide a tool to repair the issue associated with these aspects. 

Pluto suggests change and transformation due to the necessity for growth and evolution. 

Neptune suggests spiritual enlightenment through emotional connectiveness or could speak of illusionary emotional issues.

Uranus speaks of sudden and dramatic emotional interaction and a new route or direction often opens up. 

Jupiter speaks of opportunities to enrich our lives through emotional interaction and positive belief structures being formed. 

Mercury speaks of emotional and mental linkage and depending on the aspects involved will either help us decipher our emotional expression or cloud this expression.  Much will also depend on the signs involved. 

Venus speaks of an emotional connection made through expressions of love and affection.

Mars brings out our emotional expression through acts of aggression, not necessarily formidable aggression, but action on our part or through those we interact with. 

There are many combinations due to the possible, planets, houses and aspects involved but these are a few expressions of our Moon and the planets linked to this luminary.

On June 27 we will look at the Moon and the Astrological elements.

THE MOON, PART I



LUNAR ASPECTS TO OTHER PLANETS IN THE NATAL CHART


When the Moon is in aspect to other planets in the natal chart, the energies take on an emotional flavour because of the Moon’s influence.  The other planet in aspect to the Moon will also have influential energies. 

As mentioned, the Moon’s energies are linked to our emotional state which can be reflects in our various expressions, our internal and our external reactions.  The connection the Moon is making to other planets will suggest how we release these expressions.    

The Moon influences our nurturing instinct, our feelings of security, our psychic and intuitive inclinations and sometimes speaks of the mother or important women or nurturing individuals in our lives.  The Moon is primarily related to our emotional vibration and the sign it is found in within our astrology chart will help us to define this. 

The Moon is ruled by the sign of Cancer.  The energies of the house position within your birth chart will be indicative of a link between your emotions (the Moon) and a specific area of life. 

Astrologer, Noel Tyle, suggests that the expression of the Moon is our “reigning need”. 

There is a huge difference between someone who has the Moon in Pisces for example and someone who has their Moon in Capricorn.  Although both of the signs are linked to emotional connectedness and heightened emotional intensity, Capricorn tends to hide its emotions.  In many cases, a Capricorn individual can seem emotionally aloof or reticent.  Pisces, however, cannot withhold their emotions and could be considered an emotional vacuum. 

The sign and house placement as well as aspects to other planets or important angles play a significant role in how the energies of the Moon play out in our natal chart.

In transit, the Moon moves so quickly that its energies are fleeting and have little impact in our overall lives.  However, if we take the movement of the progressed Moon (one degree per month) this influence will play a significant role in our ongoing life’s story.  The progressed Moon has an impact in our lives for three months, one degree approaching, one degree direct and one degree in separation.  The progressed Moon often speaks of change and emotional interaction and can also speak of our mothers and our involvement or interaction with her.

The progressed Moon may have an influence when moving to a different location.  It can speak of changes with our occupation, with our marriage, with our children, with group involvements, with the working environment and people within that environment, with mystical involvement and religious pursuits to name a few (house position).

On June 25, we will continue our look at the Moon’s influence in our astrology chart.

SUN IN CANCER - JUNE 21, 2018




The Sun moved into the sign of Cancer at 6:08 a.m. (EST) today, June 21, 2018. 

Cancer is a cardinal sign offering those with this free flowing Sun the push to succeed particularly when it comes to nurturing and caring for those that they love. 

Cancer individuals are emotional and sensitive and genuinely care about the welfare of others, especially family.

Many with strong emphasis in the Sign of Cancer (or fourth house) have a real difficult time separating their feelings from their thoughts. They feel what they think and this unique insight can often lead to the opening of channels to intuition and psychic perception, as these gifts are generally not part of the intellect.

With strong emotional ties to their personality, Cancer individuals are usually known for their gentleness and tranquil nature. Do not be fooled by perhaps their standoffish manner especially when ridiculed or when they feel attacked emotionally for there is a lot that goes on beneath the surface.

The sensitivity that is so inherent within this group of unique individuals can become their greatest asset as time passes or become their weakest element in their psyche if self-expression is hindered.

Currently, those individuals with their Sun sign in and around the 20 degree Cancer mark (allow an orb from about 13 degrees to 22 degrees Cancer) have an opposition to Pluto in their astrology chart.  As at June 13, 2018 transiting Pluto was at 20 degrees and 42minutes in the sign of Capricorn.  The closer transiting Pluto moves to forming a direct opposition to your Sun, the stronger the energies will becomes.  Those with their Sun in earlier or later degrees of Cancer will have to check an ephemeris for dates when this opposition was direct or is going to be direct in their charts.

Pluto’s energies focus on transformations and the need to uprooting due to required change.  Often the changes that come to pass are permanent in their nature and what once was will no longer exist....they will be a thing of the past.  These changes can be personal and stem from delving deep within to uncover anything that needs to surface or be faced.  This can involve relationships of significance, working conditions, health regiments, children, spiritual enlightenment, finances, security issues and self-undoing just to name a few.  Much will depend on the areas of life involvement which will be signified by the house positions affected in your personal astrology chart.

Oppositions often involve others and frequently they speak in terms of actions taken by others which force change and disruption for you.  This is not to say that you have nothing to do with what might be transpiring but often the instigators stem from other people or outside influences.  This can be quite disruptive but when the energies finally complete their cycle which is usually when transiting Pluto is at least 2 degrees past being direct and completely finished its contact (retrograde motion can bring back the issue), then life settles and the changes put in place can be viewed from a different perspective than when we were caught up in the transition.

The energies of this transit from Pluto to the Cancer Sun are long lasting, often challenging and many times, life changing and permanent in nature.  People need to make significant alterations to the issues at hand and stick with what they are aiming to put in place.  If you become complacent or try to avoid the needed changes, outside influences seem to step in and alter life’s course so that things line up the way they should.  Be ready for transformation, regeneration and resolution over a period of time.  Acknowledge that the changes set in place are always for your greater good, even when it does not appear that way in the beginning.  This change is necessary and beneficial.

SUMMER SOLSTICE 2018



We will be celebrating the summer solstice (Northern Hemisphere) on June 21, 2018 at 6:07 a.m. EST.  This powerful solar energy serves to recharge our spirits, minds and bodies.

All things are energy and is interconnected.  Some of us are quite aware of these influential external energies and others, not so much.  With or without this awareness, all living things are affected by the position of the planets at their birth, by the continual movement of the planets as time passes, by the influence of the rotation of our earth including the changing seasons and with any and all other shifts that occur in nature. 

When guided by spirit/our higher selves (call it what you may), our focus is to walk and live our truth, during the easy times but especially during the times that we are being tested or being taught.  Take advantage of the strong solar energies of the Summer Solstice to push forward with this focus.  Use the more aggressive energies of the Sun to catapult forward and allow yourself to bloom into your own true creation.  Rise above your thinking mind and allow.  See the world around you for what it is without judgement for it is this judgement that can and will make life stressful. 

Just as the Sun is currently at its fullest potential (from our earthly position,) you too can allow all of your inner power and beauty to radiate out.  By doing so, you express your true self.  There is nothing more perfect that your true self.  By allowing your true authentic self to bloom, each and every other living thing that your energy touches will also benefit from your beauty.

What a glorious time of year.  Allow yourself to mirror the seasons.  We have just experienced a season of wonderful renewal, Spring.  We have worked hard to create buds of promise.  Now is the time to allow those buds to gently open and to eventually bear the fruits of our efforts.  This beauty and abundance will be seen and experienced by all that share with us this garden of life. 

Happy Summer Solstice!

WINDOWS OF OPPORTUNITY



Take advantage of the moments when the metaphysical window of opportunities opens.  It is what we do with these opportunities that either curtail or expand our connectedness.  There seems to be specific times when the gateway to spirituality is open and mystical unfolding is unleashed in leaps and bounds. 

Some individuals suggest that these opportunities are periodic with long breaks in between.  For others opportunities are long lasting and are presented often.  For many, however, they get glimpses off and on throughout their lives.  This can result in frustration and impatience.

It is important, therefore, to seize the moments when they are presented.  Sometimes we receive nudges that something significant is about to unfold.  Other times, we have little to no warning when the window of opportunity swings wide. 

When these opportunities present themselves, the energies flow without restriction.  An abundance of information becomes available and insight can be quite profound.  These are unique moments of inspiration and magical in their expression.

Some of us get glimpses of the future.  Some of us get revelations about the past.  Some experience the ever present now in a new and wonderful way.  All of these experiences, however, can be profound.  The revelations that unfold can have a significant effect on us for many years to come if not life long.  Some of these experiences can never be forgotten as their impact is life changing.  Very little of what is learned and understood will be forgotten and the event can be relived in its entirety. 

Grab hold of these events.  Record them in some way in their original form, although our memory seems to be able to do this efficiently.  For most of us these events are few, far between and invaluable.  We are privileged during these moments of inspiration.  These truly are moments of awakening. 

We are not suggesting that valuable lessons are not at hand always, for they are.  At times, however, we are gifted with monumental revelations that are life changing and once experienced we can never return to whom we were previously.  These are milestones that we never forget but are infrequent in our lives.

In the meantime, pay attention to the subtle messages and quaint discussions that take place in your life regularly as these are what create even further understanding after these transformative events.  In

TRANSITING MERCURY CONJUNCT NATAL VENUS



Mercury could be considered an adapting planet, because it takes on the energies of the planet or angle it links up with.  Mercury is the planet of the mind and has a great deal to do with the thinking process and communication techniques.  Although Mercury by transit usually moves about one degree per day, while in retrograde which can last 3 weeks, it can, by direct and retrograde motion, move across the same area of an astrology chart three times.  It energies would then become more significant, as you can imagine, as it is in aspect depending on which aspect we are speaking about for up to 7 degrees approaching and 2 degrees separating.  While in retrograde, it could be in effect for many days and have a profound impact during this period especially if other planets are also involved in the equation.

Venus is often about love and affection, life’s enjoyment, socializing and sometimes speaks of money and adornments.  In some cases, it also speaks of young women. 

With Mercury conjunct Venus, this could be a time when we fall in love with someone and spend a great deal of time thinking about such person.  Much will depend on the overall condition of Mercury in your chart as to how this thinking might unfold.  If, for example, you have Mercury in favourable aspect to Neptune, this could create energies of a magical attraction.  Because Neptune is involved, be sure that you are seeing things clearly, as Neptune tends to make things cloudy.

The sign positon of Mercury and Venus and the house position will help identify what area of life will be involved.  If this is in the second house, for example, the finances might be the focus of attention but Venus usually suggests opportunities or good fortune especially if also tied to Jupiter by favourable aspect. 

If it is in the fifth house, for example, this could suggest a romantic encounter or it may be speaking of one of your children, possibly a daughter experiencing something along these lines. 

If the sixth house is tied into the equation, this could suggest that there are changes taking place within the working environment or with someone within that environment.  As you can see, house position and aspect configuration are very significant when reading what an aspect is speaking of.

If by chance Mercury is retrograde during this period, perhaps it will be wise to wait for the dust to settle and make your move or do what you are planning on doing once Mercury goes direct again.  Mercury retrograde often points towards a time for reflection and planning, but is not always favoured for action.  Do not let the retrograde motion stop you if you have been planning something over a long period of time and the day has now arrived.  Astrology points the way, but you are always at the helm of your life’s motion.  Utilizing your chart and the energies it speaks of can create an easier route but it seldom says do not take the route at all.  We can build a house with power tools or we can build a house with hand tools.  Either way the house gets built.

Enjoy this time frame and if you have someone in your life that you are making a special connection with, the communication channels should be wide open and dialogue between the two of you can flow easily.
