JUPITER IN VIRGO – August 11, 2015 till September 10, 2016

Júpiter-en-Virgo
For the first time since August 2003, exactly 12 years ago, Jupiter returns to the sign of Virgo from today, 11th of August until the 10th of September 2016. It leaves behind, 12-month journey through the sign of Leo with a lot of benefits and excesses that the Leos, will surely not forget that easily.

Virgo is an Earth sign, so this period of Jupiter transiting this sign for a year, will be rather less idealistic than the previous one. In traditional astrology Jupiter in Virgo is considered in its detriment by being in the sign opposite to the one (PISCES) which rules. Jupiter in Virgo believes that is work and dedication that creates opportunities, rather than luck. Given this and the fact that for modern astrologers, with whom I identify myself more, Jupiter rules Sagittarius, sign that also challenges Virgo, due to its extraordinary optimism, I tend to think that Jupiter benefits Virgo, more than Virgo pales the energies of Jupiter, since it is endowed of a practicality and a contention that this huge planet does not usually have. At the same time Jupiter expands the horizons of Virgo, leading it to want to investigate what is beyond the known borders, to search in other cultures to enrich its work, and its vision of life. The obsession with perfection of Virgo can take some extraordinary dimensions, which has made us aware of obsessive compulsive disorders that can be expressed in addictions to food, such as bulimia or anorexia, but at the same time brings with it the desire to find the reasons for them to a more spiritual level. It also gives an intense search for alternatives to keep healthy, other than traditional medicine, and it also brings us closer to a more philosophical forms of education. Alternative medicine will be even more popular in this period.

In spite of changing signs, the square (9’º) to Saturn continues (http://www.astrologiaarquetipica.com/2014/11/16/the-saturn-jupiter-square-20014-15-16/), which will return to be exact on March 20, 2016; so is the conjunction to Venus, which is retrograde at the moment and returns to encounter Jupiter in Virgo on 16th and 17th October this year.

Amelia Earhart, the first woman to cross alone the Atlantic Ocean piloting a plane, had Jupiter in Virgo. She was a nurse during the war and this is another expression of this position o Júpiter in Virgo. Will Smith, Carla Bruni, John Glenn (one of the astronauts who went to the Moon), Osama Bin Laden, Alexandro Magno, the wonderful Eva Green and Cate Blanchett, all have Jupiter in Virgo in their birth chart.

The main features of Virgo which are its need to serve the community and its preoccupation with health, are enriched by the arrival of Jupiter, so worldwide we may see some improvements in Social Security, and jobs conditions. Work for Virgo is an obsession, but not to obtain status as with Capricorn, but to develop excellence. It will be a year where we’ll have to find jobs and practical solutions for all these immigrants crossing the Mediterranean in search of a better life and security for their families, escaping war and hunger, as many of us have done in the past at different times of our history.

Jupiter in Virgo will also facilitate communication and international trade. If you are looking for a promotion perhaps this is the moment to ask for it. The House where Virgo is in your birth chart will be where you will see the benefits of this transit that will accompany us in the next 12 months. The “Erasmus” system for students of all nationalities to be able to travel and do a year of theirs studies in other countries will also increase, so many students will benefit from it.  A new impulse for all the business of ecological food on the market.  Yoga, Tai-chi, Pilates and all these techniques will be even more popular, so if you are a teacher of any of these disciplines, go for it.

For Leos, who worry about the departure of this great benefactor from their sign, they must remember that is moving to activate the second House of finances, therefore plans and opportunities of new projects initiated in the last 12 months, may begin to bear fruit. PISCES, Gemini and Sagittarius will feel much more optimistic about their future, with a great impulse to do or to start projects they had in mind but didn’t dare to do before.

In its transit through Virgo, Jupiter will link with Neptune in September by opposition, which will force us to find international support for immigrants and refugees. In October it will form a trine to Pluto what can bring some real advance in global finance, finally. In March and June 2016 it will repeat this trine to Pluto and then it will link back with Saturn, which will feel powerfully through April and May. On January 8, is it will station retrograde at 23 ° of Virgo until May 9.

On a personal level the retrograde period of Jupiter in Virgo from January 8 to May 9, 2016, will be the golden opportunity for everyone to have a look at our health, our work, to find solutions to the problems that may exist in these two aspects of our life. A good time to think about what we do to make a living, and what we do with respect to our health. Do we eat too much?, do we drink too?, take too many drugs or prescription medicines?. Do not forget that our health is our responsibility and this body, is the only one we have. So take care of it with all your love, its what carries us through life. There is no happiness possible in a sick body. Time to take responsibility for our destiny. Jupiter protects us.

C’mon Virgo, this is your moment! Taurus and Capricorn also, go for it!

FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN – JULY 1- 2, 2015

normal_estre

Here we are on the eve of the full moon in Capricorn of the year, as it is the norm in the month of July, when the Sun transits the sign of Cancer.

We always say that the full moon concludes a cycle, which has begun in the previous new moon, which in this case was in the last degrees of Gemini,  on June 16. The angle Cancer-Capricorn speaks of the need to let go of the paternal patterns to find the way to nourish ourselves without having to focus on the needs of others (Cancer) and learn to find our own limits, (Capricorn), without the need to fight against authority “outside”, in the form of “bosses”, institutions, etc. Whereever it falls in your chart this angularity is where you must visualize these lessons. With the Sun in Cancer traveling hand in hand with Mars, and the Moon in Capricorn holding on to Pluto, the encounter with institutions or the bosses, parents, or any authority figure is possible. Something will remind us of what can not escape of, what we must pay if we have not done so, laws we must follow, even if we don’t like it, the work that we must do even though is difficult, the limits that we must put to our children, so that they are not consume by doubt, etc. All these are issues that will be illuminated for this full moon, to help us to see more clearly where we are deceiving ourselves choosing to blame others, instead of finding within ourselves the reasons for our predicaments.

This full moon in Capricorn coincides with the conjunction Venus-Jupiter in Leo, which is  exact these days around the lunation, actually if you look at the sky at dusk, you can see them almost together, in a beautiful dance, since they are the two brightest planets in the sky, after the Sun and the Moon. It is said that it was a conjunction like this that the Magi were following when they were looking for the place of birth of the new King. To complete the romantic air of this lunation, the Sun which is aligned with Mars in Cancer, it is or rather, forms, an exact trine to Neptune in PISCES, as if to remind us that life is not only the reality of every day, but the world of our dreams and aspirations is just as real as paying the mortgage. The part of our nature that dreams, longs and searches for perfection or Eden on Earth, does not leave us even for a moment. If you have important aspects of Neptune in your chart, you know what I mean, even if you work in a bank or at the offices of some call center, there is always a part of our psyche that does not surrender to this reality and remains in a dreaming state: what we would like to be, what we would like to have, in other words, thinking or our dreams, the place our soul longs to reach. To complete the dream, the conjunction Venus-jupiter is located in trine  to Uranus, which we can bring innovative ideals, surprises that will stimulate our intellect or simply help us find ways to enjoy pleasure in a slightly more intellectual way. Seminars that help us expand our consciousness are a good idea for this weekend. As Venus makes its retrograde motion from July 25 and begins its apparent reverse motion,  it will be forming this conjunction to Jupiter for about three months, being exactly  on August 4 and 5, 6 days before Jupiter  moves into Virgo and also on October 25, but this time both planets in the sign of Virgo.

But the spell will not last long since this full moon, i.e. the Sun with Mars and the Moon in line with Pluto, form a Grand Cross with the Lunar Nodes. Planets that are in square to the nodes, normally find us at the crossroads between repeating  old family ancestral patterns or evolve. A part of us wants to conclude certain issues, to be able to move forward and another part of our psyche stops us and keeps us repeating family history. This is another opportunity to take a look at what we need to conclude at this time, to be able to evolve, to move to the next chapter. This moon can bring us the clear vision of what we must do to achieve this.

Pallas opposes Mercury which adds even more fuel to the need of experience our intellect. Pleasure needs not be divorced from learning. Vesta also forms a T-square to this lunation, in some way, reinforcing this idea of retreating towards our interior and find pleasure in a renewed way, through the search for the inner paradise to discover its incredible wealth  of information and creativity and find true pleasure learning to be who we really are. There is no bigger pleasure that the feeling of being aligned with our Center and the Universe, with the certainty of being on the right path.

GEMINI NEW MOON ON JUNE 16TH!

krishna-radha-masculine-feminineWith Mercury in its direct motion a feeling of the return to normality can be sensed, even though its post-shadow period ends on the 27th of this month. Everything we experienced during this past month can now be used to re-structure our lives. Now we find ourselves at the new moon in Gemini. Like all lunations this one is not equal to any other, before or after. Having lived this Mercury Retrograde for over 3 weeks, cycle which was accompanied all the time by Mars in alignment to the Sun, and eventually to Mercury, we arrive today to exact Sun-Mars conjunction and the Moon will join them Tuesday 16th.
We have survived the arguments, misunderstandings, poorly expressed feelings, examinations, divorces and separations (there were several), and although Skeptics may say that this can always happen, not only during Mercury Retrogrades, our consciousness seems to register them more precisely during these cycles. This time the Moon-Sun-Mars conjunction forms in opposition to Pallas, (the asteroid), and a square to Chiron. Pallas, the motherless daughter, born from the head of her father Zeus, represents the masculine aspect “animus” within the female psyche. Pallas is the woman soldier, the intellectual, the artist, who channels her sexuality through her creations. Patron of the arts, crafts and the arts of war, is the goddess of knowledge and wisdom. Celibate by nature since she sees men as equal, rather than as emotional partners. The duality of Gemini, which sometimes can reach pathological extremes such as schizophrenia, is illuminated by this new moon. The difficulty of integrating the feminine and masculine element of our psyche in a harmonious way, both for man and woman is a drama far more complex than what I can describe in this article. Without reaching the levels called “pathological”, each person with the Sun, the Moon, Venus, or Mars in Gemini, knows of this duality that currently is aggravated by the fact that Neptune, in PISCES since 2011, has begun a long period of squares to these positions of planets in the sign of the twins. The sexual confusion is one of the manifestations of this aspect and to say that this lunation will put the finger in the wound is probably an understatement . But everything that has to do with the integration of the sex opposite to ours, within our psyche is illuminated in this new moon. The combination of Mars-Moon-Sun with the energy of Pallas, will drive us to the confrontation with this conflict and without going into great detail about Pallas, which will be the subject of a webinar and workshop on August 29th, for more info go to: (http://eventosastrologicos.com/2015/04/pallas-atenea-una-mujer-en-un-mundo-de-hombres/), I’d like to say that it will bring us to the awareness of this duality and the need to moderate these divider impulses of our psyche to be able to live in a healthy and integrated way. The story of Pallas is complex and describes the journey and the power of the feminine in a patriarchal world, where the woman has been and is still subordinated to men in many cultures. The positive part of this aspect is the fusion of our emotions with our intellect and the contact with Chiron will provide the opportunity to heal these division by the power of consciousness, so that we can become wholesome individuals. Pallas, in the sign of Sagittarius at this time, is related to the sign of Libra and Aquarius, and for this lunation also forms an exact grand trine to Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries, prompting us to analyze this process from a more philosophical and mental viewpoint, enriching us with a vision of the transcendental, since most of these proceses are not really the individual prerogatives, but inherited issues from our family and culture. The way we feel with respect to the masculine and feminine, it is colored, like everything else, by our education and what we experienced in our childhood and adolescence regarding our sexuality. The way our parents and grandparents dealt with these issues, is reflected in our everyday dilemmas, especially on such important issues as our sexuality and our capacity to direct our lives in the direction that we desire.
Use the insights gained by the powers of this new moon to take a look at your patriarchal wounds, your feelings and their manifestation in your personal relationships. Male dominance has been and is detrimental not only to women but also to men. Recognition of the opposite sex in our own psyche doesn’t have to be a drama, but an enrichment, because we’ve all been created by the union of the masculine and the feminine, therefore both elements live in us. The mutable signs Geminis-Virgo-Sagittarius and Pisces are the most affected by this lunation but this is a time for all of us to question how our little or big daily dramas are colored by this division in our psyche. Today Saturn dips back into Scorpio until September 17th, which is another allegory about delving into our desire nature and our sexuality to find the answers we seem to be missing in our lives.

FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – JUNE 2, 2015

o-MEDITATION-facebookWe are already in the full moon in Sagittarius that puts an end,  in some way,  to the issues brought about by the new moon in Taurus on May 18th, the day before Mercury stationed Retrograde for the second time this year and in its own sign. The new moon in Gemini will be the June 16.
The conjunction Sol-Mercurio – Mars in Gemini which caused so much anxiety, arguments and sore throats, continues in some way, but is already changing shape bringing the calm after the storm.
Yet it is important not to lose the lesson of those times, when our personal sky seems filled with clouds, making us forget that the sky “is always blue”, and once the clouds pass, we go back to see it in all its blue glory.
For this full moon the Sun is between Mercury and Mars with a small orbit of 4 ° of separation from them and all three together oppose the Moon, all of them forming a square to Neptune in Pisces.
We already know that any planet in square (90º) to Neptune somehow takes the brunt of this planet that is in its own sign of PISCES for the first time in the life of all beings that are alive today. What is the most negative part of Neptune?Victimization is one, lack of limits is another, resistance to accept our reality and our present, another. Trying to find the shortest route regardless of the methods, another. Neptune is a planet glorified by those who only relate to its intuitive skills and “spirituality” and its incredible ability to connect with the pain of others, but when this planet is connected by square, while the spiritual quest can intensify, also the inability to live in one’s own body, and accept the limitations of our “humanity”. In its positive aspect, this square also reminds us that there are other ways of communicating that are not necessarily verbally. Whenever two or more people get together, as well as what they say with words, other types of messages are also transmitted through  non-verbal communication, faces, gestures, smiles and grimaces of pain, etc. The Soul speaks and not just through the word.
For Neptunian diseases there is nothing better than Saturn, i.e. order, the limits and the acceptance of the reality. To counter the possible confusion of these days of full moon and the lethargy that can be induced by Neptune, Saturn, about to enter for the last time in Scorpio, where it will remain until September 17, sign which will not visit for another 29 years, forms a large trine to Venus in Cancer and Vesta in Pisces. This aspect will help us withdraw a little bit from the noise and try to disconnect from the excess information of our everyday lives, the senseless conversations, to connect with the deepest part of our being and find our own voice.
Leave the mobile at home and go for a walk through a forest, or a garden or a park, Moon in Sagittarius will appreciate  it. The duality Geminis-Sagittarius which is what is activated in this full moon reminds us of the fact that Gemini wants to gather information and pass it on, without necessarily understanding it and the role of Sagittarius, is to ask “why” or at least “what for”. Today we live in an era of immediate and excessive information, with our brains trying to process it at the same time and even though it benefits us in some respects because it allows us to know what happens anywhere in the world instantly, is at the same time crippling us to be able to concentrate for long periods of time. Trying to process that much information at the same time, makes us feel disoriented and exhausted quickly and we are more prompt to make mistakes. The result is that when we get back home from work, our brain is overexcited and we find it really difficult to lower the energy level, which causes many people to take pills to relax and sleep.
Another problem of the excessive information, is that often, returning to a quiet home, forces us to turn on the television or the computer, to stay connected with something outside of us, because the inner silence becomes too evident and we are faced with the “terror” of “solitude”, that black monster that whispers from inside, making us believe that we are indeed alone. The funny thing is that “feeling lonely” is a true human feeling, everyone on the planet has felt alone at some point in their lives, even once a week, which cancels the true meaning of “being lonely”, since we can all relate to it, and probably can help one another since we all have the same feeling. If by “lonely” we mean that no one can help us in our dilemma, then, that is right, as no one can live our lives, but since we are all in the same dilemma, we can share this apparent loneliness with everybody else. Yet, each of us must find the solution to our own drama. In this aspect we can say we alone, but not really, because everybody else is in the same predicament.
Use this full moon to give yourself some time for meditation and for listening to your inner voice, but above all, listen and trust it.

MARS IN GEMINI – 12 of May till 24th of June, 2015

7ed9d4_9338d1d2554f23b95219c4ba443fb39d.jpg_srz_980_608_85_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_jpg_srz

Mars has entered the sign of the twins, on May 12th, sign which transits every two years, since this is the time that takes iMercurio to go around the Sun.

This planet , which we have the intention to inhabit in a future, when the Sun becomes too large, engulfs Mercury and Venus ,probably, and therefore making it impossible to live on Earth. OK. Stop! Do not panic, this is a possibility which scientists and astronomers speculate for the next 50 million years. Therefore neither you, nor I, nor any descendant of our that will remember us, will be living.

Gemini is an Air sign, intellectual, curious, changing, restless, with an extraordinary ability to be on 2 sides at the same time, at least, mentally.

The desire to question everything, makes people born under this sign, to be informed of almost everything that happens around them. They know about films, art, the latest technologies, music, Sciences, since they question incessantly and love to learn, finding very difficult to delve into something in particular, because there is always something new that calls their attention. I’m not saying that this is a superficial sign at all, but for them to remain in the same “mode” for a long time is extremely difficult.

Mars in this sign questions, argues, speaks. In their intense search for knowledge, they keep being sidetracked by the new thing they are interested in, so what seemed incredibly interesting yesterday, may be terribly boring today.

Mars, the planet that describes our sexuality and our evolutionary stage in this respect, seeks different stimuli, often the opposite at the same time. The person with Mars in Gemini wants to learn everything there is to know about  sexuality, not only in his closest environment but also in other cultures. Surrendering to the sexual act from the entirely physical or emotional standpoint, it is difficult. Gemini needs to “understand”, talk, ask, check how is the”other” is; experiments with different partners and even different sexes is also possible.

It is a challenge to find out  what really motivates them sexually. The division of the psyche of a Gemini person, manifests itself having to meet  the two opposites, continuously. What they like today, tomorrow may seem much less interesting. A nervous state can precede the time of a sexual encounter. Although they are constantly fluctuating from one interest to another, they can be in a relationship for a long time, provided the other, allows them to live “the other half of their psyche” in another relationship with a friend, for example, that might be male or female, often very different from the regular partner.

Yesterday Mars opposed Saturn in Sagittarius, which encouraged the thought of  whether the current relationship could be for life. This is  a very difficult and complicated issue, for those born with Mars in Gemini, especially if they have  the Moon in Cancer or Capricorn, for example, where the emotional needs will be very different to their sexual preferences. Mars in Gemini must learn to handle boredom in personal relationships, particularly if the other is a less curious and more sedentary type of personality. On  May 25th, Mars will form a square to Neptune in PISCES, these can be a couple of days when energies are extremely low and is quite hard for us to focus on the task at hand. On the 27the, Mars will be aligned with Mercury in its Retrograde motion for couple of days, which can also be difficult for our communications, where it is possible that unintended arguments arise.  Still  is an ideal time to review our thoughts and decisions. Be careful with what you say.

The days 6-7-8  ofJune, Mars will be aligned with the Sun and both will form a Sextile (60 °) to Uranus in Aries, which will mean a good excuse to spend a weekend, doing exactly what you want. You do not commit to anything other than what you want to do. Also a good opportunity to get rid of unwanted responsibilities, even if it is for a couple of days.

The person with Mars in Gemini should seek its “North” in Sagittarius, in search of their inner truth, rather than following fashion or the opinion of others. Mars will be in this sign until June 24 and will not come back to this sign until April 22, 2017. People with planets in PISCES, Sagittarius and Virgo might be more accelerated that usual causing some nervousness and irritability. Take a deep breath and go to the Park to practice Yoga and OMMMM ;-D

NEW MOON in ARIES – APRIL 18, 2015

If you ask me what was this new moon in Aries like for me, I will tell you that it was the reason why I could not write about it before. I caught a virus that left me without energy and without being able to eat for the past three days, which in a way was good for a bit detox. I must also add that this lunation coincided exactly, by square with my Sun-Moon angular opposition. But, of course, watching the news from the confort of my sofa, I see that a boat with more than 700 people sank in the Mediterranean sea and only 20 odd people, have been rescued, which automatically cancelled my pathetic attempt to feel the victim of the forces of the Universe.
Even so, although late, I couldn’t let this one pass and not write about this important event of the year, because the lunations in Aries are definitely the major force and the initiation of the modality of the astrological year. Aries reminds me of the first card of the Tarot, the Fool. The beginning of the journey, the innocence of the first attempt, and my mind disobediently goes back to the story about those immigrants, who after paying more than 5 or 6 thousand euros to cross the ocean, in the worst possible conditions, end up at the bottom of the it. The most unbearable and puzzling feeling in this story, apart from the ruthless lucrative action of those who benefit financially from such a journey, is that rush to go in search of their dreams, on the other side of the Mediterranean sea, knowing that these shipwrecks occur almost weekly, and that it is possible that they will never reach the other side. And this is what speaks of Aries and the card of the Fool. I don’t speak here of unconsciousness, or irresponsibility of those who travel with their families, knowing that they may all perish in the attempt, because that would be to analyse the situation from a European point of view, but that impulse to action, to start something better, something that will remove them from lethargic despair, which are trying to escape from. And this is Aries, too. That energy that leads to action, to survival at all costs. No matter the mistakes that you might make, just “go for it”, says Aries. If you make a mistake is good, because it means that you have tried, which is infinitely better than not trying at all. Lethargy is not an Aries trait.
Mars, the ruler of Aries, is the archetype of the Warrior, he who goes to war, knowing that he may die, and at the moment is in Taurus forming a square to Jupiter in Leo, which also explains the thinking with excessive optimism, without measuring the consequences correctly. For this lunation it also coincided with Pluto and Pallas, by trine. Mars in Taurus, acts in an unusual way in this sign, since Taurus is quite slow. But this contact,however, leads us to the reflection of what happens when we do not have our normal energy level, either by illness, fatigue, excess of partying, etc. Venus in Gemini also is in a square to Neptune in PISCES, exact yesterday, at the same time that Mercury in Taurus, contacted it by sextile, which leads us to pay more attention to pleasure, creativity, romance and to party. Absolutely brilliant, if the weekend was just to relax and have fun, but copiously less gratifying, if you should be alert and active. Saturn from Sagittarius opposed this lunation, therefore the frustration in one form or another, will have been felt in our daily routine, during this past weekend. Something we had planned to do, may not have happened as expected, or forces beyond our control, thwarted our efforts to arrive to good end.
Neptune and Vesta are in exact conjunction today, therefore, the desire for recovery, regeneration and reaching for purification are evident on this day. We yield to the force of the feminine, the healer. Order and everyday responsibility calls, while the Moon moves into Gemini tonight, opposing Saturn and Mercury will reach the square with Jupiter. As we have seen on many occasions, this huge planet, the largestof our little solar system, can be very beneficial and also “greatly” negative, if we give in to its sense of grandiosity and excess, discounting Saturn to help us keep our feet on the ground.
Today my soul weeps for all those souls at the bottom of the Mediterranean, some of them, little babies that common sense tells us that they could not have chosen such end. The question for this first Monday after the New Moon in Aries is: what is your resolution for this month or this year? whatever you do, don’t put it off.

FULL MOON AND LUNAR ECLIPSE ON APRIL 4TH

Eclipse05After the New Moon, which was also a Total Eclipse of Sun, in the last degrees of PISCES, on March 20th, comes  the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, in the sign of Libra.
This eclipse will be the third of four eclipses in a Tetrad of lunar eclipses. The first occurred in April 2014. the second in September 2014, the current one on April 4 is the third and the last will be on 28 September of this yearThe last Tetrad of lunar eclipses occurred in 2003-4, and the next will be 2032-33.
Lunar eclipses occur when a full moon forms  in line or in conjunction with the Lunar Nodes,  when the Moon gets into the shadow of the Earth, which in turn is between the Sun and the MoonDuring the eclipsewe see this almost reddish Moon and the shadow you see in it, is the the shadow of the Earth on it. The reddish color is due to the Sun‘s rays passing through the Earth’s atmosphere filtering the typical blue light. It’s normally called “blood moon”.
Unlike the Solar Eclipse that can only be seen in certain areas of the Earth, the eclipse of the moon can be seen by all of us who have a vision of the Moon at the moment that occursThis eclipse will occur exactly between 9 am( GMT), 11 am Spanish time, and will end at 3pm GMT, 5 pm in Spain. It will pass exactly through the shadow of the Earth between 10:1513:45 GMT, or 12:15-15:45 in Barcelona. I hope we can see some of it!!.
This eclipse occurs at 14 ° 24′ of Aries (Sun)  Libra (the Moon) angle, thus coinciding with Uranus at 16 ° 20′ of Aries and forming a T-square to Pluto at 15 ° 30′ of CapricornThe next day the Sun will link exactly with this  small, far away and yet so powerful planet. Everyone who has gone through a Pluto transit knows what I’m talking about. And so?… you may be asking yourself. Well, the issues that we’ve had on the table for several years and especially this last month, will have another opportunity to be seen, this time with more consciousnessIf they are not, then it is possible that we may react without control, and we may find ourselves asking once more, how is it  possible that we cannot control some part of our psyche, never mind how hard we try
The angle Aries-Libra, talks about Mand You. What do I need to express in this lifetime and why do i keep living it through another?These are the oppositions (180 °) in the birth chart. They show us which part of our psyche is projected on the other, to be able in this way, to experience these two sides it in real time . It is when we fall in love and we are still under the influence of the “magic potion”, which is what falling in love really feels like, as Tristan and Isolde did, when we see in the other, that part of us that we have difficulty in finding balance with The fights with the other, is the struggle within our own psyche. Although we argue with the other, in fact, we are only arguing with ourselves. Most of our experience of life is not at a physical level,  but rather within our psyche. Contrary to what we normally think, the greater part of our psyche is unconscious.
When we fall in love, the  divine image of our psyche, flies out of us and  is placed (projected) on the other  to experience a sense of unity, totalitywhich seems to elude us in our daily lives.
Romantic love always consists of the projection of the image of the personal soul, on the otherIn this Aries-Libra full moon and in contact with the  Urano-Pluto square, one of the parties does Uranus and “needs space” “something new” and the other, does Pluto and wants desperately to hold on to it. Which side are you on, in your relationship? You should know that whichever side you put yourself in, you will encounter the other. That’s what happens with squares in the birth chart. Although it seems that it is the ‘other’ that causes the conflict, the reality is that the conflict is in our psyche and the struggle simply shows us these two so different parts of ourselves.
Saturn and Neptune are also in square from now until the end of 2016, which speaks of the need to give form and expression  to our desires, to our need to live our dreams and everything that we can imagineA part of us wants to return to the union with the Whole, that place where we came from and where we will return to. Some call it ‘Heaven’,  and the other part wants to live here, in this incarnation, in this land, and be everything that we can be. The Saturnian longing implies hard work and dedication, the Ethereal does not. The ineffable lives within us irremediably, making us hate our humanity, so full of limitations.
But these two, Saturn and Neptune, remind us that the road is long and that our actions (Aries) seem to emanate from a great plan,  a plan we do not know is there, consciously, but it seems to want to take us to a certain balance, (Libra)
Our vision will not be fully clear until this square starts fading, therefore, this is a time to ask questions and go in search of the truth (Saturn in Sagittarius), and learn to live with what Is, rather than with what we want it to be. Saturn forms a trine to Jupiter, so the need for adventure is powerful. But the “Lord of the Rings” (Saturn) dips back into Scorpio between June 15 and September 17 when it will return to Sagittarius, where it will be until December 20, 2017.

April 8 Jupiter finally ends its retrograde motionwhich began on 8 December and again on its way to the last degrees of Leo,  to enter Virgo on August 11. Jupiter and Saturn will be in square from July and in those moments, our adventure plans might have to wait, when more urgent issues will remind us of what responsibility feels like.
Enjoy the eclipseand don’t forget to ask the appropriate questionsIf the questions are good, the answers will be, too.

SECOND SUPER MOON AND NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS OF THE YEAR- TODAY

After the New Moonon March 20th, which was also a Total Eclipse of Sun, in the last degrees of PISCES, comes  the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, in the sign of Libra.
This eclipse will be the third of four eclipses in a Tetrad of lunar eclipses. The first occurred in April 2014. the second in September 2014, the current one on April 4 is the third and the last will be on 28 September of this year. The last Tetrad of lunar eclipses occurred in 2003-4, and the next will be 2032-33.
Lunar eclipses occur when a full moon forms  in line or in conjunction with the Lunar Nodes,  when the Moon gets into the shadow of the Earth, which in turn is between the Sun and the Moon. During the eclipse, we see this almost reddish Moon and the shadow you see in it, is the the shadow of the Earth on it. The reddish color is due to the Sun’s rays passing through the Earth’s atmosphere,  filtering the typical blue light. It’s normally called “blood moon”.
Unlike the Solar Eclipse that can only be seen in certain areas of the Earth, the eclipse of the moon can be seen by all of us who have a vision of the Moon at the moment that occurs. This eclipse will occur exactly between 9 am( GMT), 11 am Spanish time, and will end at 3pm GMT, 5 pm in Spain. It will pass exactly through the shadow of the Earth between 10:15-13:45 GMT, or 12:15-15:45 in Barcelona. I hope we can see some of it!!.
This eclipse occurs at 14 ° 24′ of Aries (Sun) – Libra (the Moon) angle, thus coinciding with Uranus at 16 ° 20′ of Aries and forming a T-square to Pluto at 15 ° 30′ of Capricorn. The next day the Sun will link exactly with this  small, far away and yet so powerful planet. Everyone who has gone through a Pluto transit knows what I’m talking about. And so?… you may be asking yourself. Well, the issues that we’ve had on the table for several years and especially this last month, will have another opportunity to be seen, this time with more consciousness. If they are not, then it is possible that we may react without control, and we may find ourselves asking once more, how is it  possible that we cannot control some part of our psyche, never mind how hard we try.
The angle Aries-Libra, talks about Me and You. What do I need to express in this lifetime and why do i keep living it through another?. These are the oppositions (180 °) in the birth chart. They show us which part of our psyche is projected on the other, to be able in this way, to experience these two sides it in real time . It is when we fall in love and we are still under the influence of the “magic potion”, which is what falling in love really feels like, as Tristan and Isolde did, when we see in the other, that part of us that we have difficulty in finding balance with.  The fights with the other, is the struggle within our own psyche. Although we argue with the other, in fact, we are only arguing with ourselves. Most of our experience of life is not at a physical level,  but rather within our psyche. Contrary to what we normally think, the greater part of our psyche is unconscious.

Romantic love always consists of the projection of the image of the personal soul, on the other. In this Aries-Libra full moon and in contact with the  Urano-Pluto square, one of the parties does Uranus and “needs space” “something new” and the other, does Pluto and wants desperately to hold on to it. Which side are you on, in your relationship? You should know that whichever side you put yourself in, you will encounter the other.

FIRST FULL MOON OF THE YEAR in Cancer – 4 and 5 of January 2015!

full-moon-lil-580x434We are already at the first full moon of the year and what a relevant lunation!!.We begin the new year with a full moon that connects with the Urano-Pluto square as if it wanted to remind us of its meaning in our lives and the fact that it is this year when this aspect, that has been affecting our lives at a collective and personal level for almost 4 years, comes as its end, to put it in some way,  since March 15th will mark the seventh and last exact square  of these two planets,aspect that will not be repeated in our lives, in the next 245 years, since Pluto will not visit  Capricorn again, till then. This transit of Pluto has brought to our consciousness the darker side of Governments, banks and institutions in general, at the collective level and on a personal level,  our own shadow (though never entirely personal, since our shadow is often defined by our family and cultural conditioning) and the effect on our psyche, when we ignore it. It is impossible to control something that is unconscious, because it simply overwhelms us in different ways and we don’t have any power over it. We can only transform what we are conscious of.

For this lunation the Sun is in conjunction to Pluto next to Vesta,  goddess guardian of the sacred fire, symbol in astrology of that within us that aligns us with our passion and our individual process. Speaks to us about what we have to do to keep that flame alive within us. Beside the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn, seems to show us the path to the expression of that which is most sacred in our lives, often related to our profession and the manifestation of our talents.

The Moon 14º of Cancer, opposes this trio in Capricorn and form Grand Cross with Uranus in Aries and the Lunar node in Libra. These are aspects that I often call “astrological poetry”, since it takes our attention to the fact that to evolve as a specie, we still have serious issues to solve, when it comes to the way we relate with one another (node in Libra). We need to find  a new way, find some sort of harmony in the way we relate to others or the Other, and of course, not only on a personal level, but also in the collectivePart of this message has to do with finding some kind of dialogue (Mercury, recently entered in Aquarius, in conjunction to Venus), less loaded with emotions, to resolve old issues that we carry within us from the past, especially those related to our parents and grandparents resentments which still resonate within our cells, instead of analyzing the needs of  the present. Although we must have respect and recognition for our ancestors’ struggles, we don’t need to repeat the suffering, on the contrary, by appreciating what they went through, we’ll  understand that we don’t have to live the same.

Mars in Aquarius opposes Jupiter in Leo, therefore the subject of  struggle of the community, versus our personal ego,  is another aspect to reflect upon.

This first full moon in Cancer, which remind us of family life, home and those issues that have to do with our unresolved situations with family members , will be the trend of these coming days. The day after the lunation becomes exact,  the pre-shadow  period of the next and first  Mercury retrograde of the year, which stations retrograde on January 22nd at 17º of Aquarius to start its apparent reverse motion, until February 12when  it will station direct once again in the first degrees of the same sign, but this is the subject of the next article.

This Full Moon  brings back the story of the suffering of Demeter in her search for Persephone, her daughter abducted by Hades, as if symbolically connected us with the need for re-encounter with our inner child, whatever your gender,and rescue the innocence and the candor of childhood and pubertyThe sign of Cancer connects us with the mother-daughter relationship, with the wonder and the difficulty of it. The mother who does not recognize the natural evolution of the daughter who grows  into womanhood and the daughter who has trouble letting go of that role, to become an adult. We don’t all have daughters in real life, but we all an inner daughter that we must help grow and evolve.

This full moon will shake the cardinal signs: Aries-Cancer-Libra-Capricorn, reminding us of the issues still to be resolvedFor Sagittarius and Leo, with Saturn already in the sign of the Centaur will mean glimpse to the topics  to dwell with, in the next two years and a halfFor the mutable signs: Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius will brings images of financial issues to manage. For the fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius it will be a good idea to listen to the Other more closely, in a new and open way.

This 2015 is a compelling and exiting year, full of challenges and  renovated energies, when we must look to the future with a more positive and compassionate vision.

Happy first Full Moon to all.!
