8/12 ~ Mars Retro Re-Enters Capricorn (until 9/10):
Mars Retro is special because it only happens every 2-years and because of its regularity, we too can benefit from a review of our personal desires every 2-years. Consider how your nature has evolved over the last 2-years specifically. What do you want now that you maybe weren’t even aware of then? Or what do you no longer desire that was really important 2-years ago? As Mars lingers on the line between Capricorn & Aquarius, we are investing extra time & energy in a single area that relates directly to our freedom & responsibilities. It’s time to renegotiate with those who matter and let folks know what you truly want at this time. Mars goes Direct 8/27 and your energy will slowly pick up speed and move on from this point. Be sure you have clarified what you want so the Universe can respond. I always say a Mars Retro allows us to make a 6-8 month investment for 18-month return. If you have planets in either Fixed or Cardinal Signs, you are being directly affected by this Mars Retro and now is the time to check in and set your intentions.

8/18 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~sextile~ Venus (art & beauty):
This energy turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel, what inspires you with love and beauty. This is a great time to be particularly creative or do something related to the arts. It is best to keep it light and let go of your mundane burdens just for a time. Pleasure reading, walk on the beach, a play or museum are all good things to do at some point this week.

8/18 ~ Mercury Direct at 11* LEO:
You’ve now had a review and hopefully, a reconnection with your own Heart so that you are expressing your unique creativity and sharing your authentic self with others. It is time to clear out the thought patterns that debilitate you with fear & self-doubt. You are more supported than ever to think for yourself and offer your gifts to a community of like-hearted Souls. As Mercury moves on and into Virgo, you will begin to weave these new ideas into the fabric of your everyday life.

8/6 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Jupiter (imagination & truth):
This is a powerful energy and with that comes the necessity of discernment because it tends to provoke you to want to get lots of things accomplished and that’s a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle, at this time. Having said that now, if you need that little “push” to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your norm and stretch in new ways. Sometimes there can be a tendency toward self-righteousness with this energy, but try to make it “self-directed” and you will benefit greatly. Walk your talk, embody your Truth. However, if you turn it on others, demanding they believe what you believe, you may have some difficulties. Be open & receptive, have a don’t-know or beginner’s mind because you never know what you may learn along the way that could really help you, now or in the future.

8/6 ~ Venus Enters Libra (until 9/9):
This is relevant for three reasons, one being that Venus is at home in either Libra or Taurus, and is strengthened and, two being that relationship-stuff is Venus’s domain and Libra’s lesson and three being that Venus is about to go Retro in Scorpio (10/5) but review the tail-end of Libra before it goes Direct in Libra (11/16) meaning she will be back here again in Nov 2018, so Aug is a snap-shot of what may come up for review toward the end of the year. Your values & priorities are shifting in relationships, it’s best to consciously co-create. Consider the following.

Venus (values, priorities, resources, love, art, beauty, culture) in Libra (balance, reciprocity, relationships) is a time to restore balance within your Being and develop a new sense of self-worth & self-value. This is an opportunity to renegotiate the terms of your primary relationships and determine what is no longer important to you, while preparing to go deeper (in Scorpio). If you align your priorities within your own Being, as well as your primary relationships of *NOW* ~ then it will make the deep dive in to the potent Scorpio energy more productive (and less debilitating). When Venus is in Libra, it is time to assess your priorities and re-establish balance with a cool head (Air sign), what’s fair, just and worth-it for you, by your own definition. It’s time to take an honest look at how you, your life and your choices affect those closest to you. And you want to reflect on how effective your choices actually are (or have been) in attracting your heart’s desires. Remember, Libra is the lesson of “balance & reciprocity” which must be considered before taking on the Scorpio lesson of “karma, power & creation”, otherwise you only create more “karma & creations” to clean up along the way. Venus will always remind you that you ARE what you attract and you show the Universe what you value by what you spend your primary resources on (time, energy, money). So use this time and Cycle to recalibrate things consciously and look for new ways of relating.

8/7 ~ Uranus Rx 2* TAURUS (1.6.2019):
This is a once-in-84 year occurrence! And it still has to retrograde back ‘n forth over the last 2-degrees of Aries and first 2-degrees of Taurus in order to complete the ‘Crossing Borders’ that we are already feeling and the whole world will feel by Spring 2019. Uranus is a collective planet and so affects many people and takes 7-8 years to accomplish its mission in each sign. It will awaken the Taurus department of life (House) and stimulate any of your planets in Taurus/Scorpio or Leo/Aquarius (by default). Also, I’d say here & now is a good time to reflect on the ‘liberating ordeal’ you just went through over the last 8-years as it stimulated your Aries department. Once it is truly into Taurus, you can start to reap the benefits and integrate the recent, radical shifts that you’re Identity & Purpose (Aries) have been through and the focus, and thus the lessons & blessings, will now shift to the values & priorities (Taurus) that support that newly awakened Emergent Self and how that works on the ground, in your body, on the Earth.
*I highly recommend Steven Forrest’s Uranus in Taurus article HERE.

8/7 ~ Venus (feminine & receiving) ~trine~ Mars Rx (masculine & giving):
Venus rules your values & priorities where relationships & finances are concerned, your inner Sacred Feminine who innately knows how to co-create with nature, what to cultivate and nurture to full development. While Mars rules your desire nature and your inner Sacred Masculine, which is responsible for maintaining your personal boundaries, getting your ideas into the world and negotiating on your own behalf. When you are channeling both through you in a balanced way, what you create and how you move through the world becomes a beautiful dance or, at least, a more interesting story. The trine is a blessing of ease & grace, an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance & reciprocity and encourages independence within the context of relationships. Communication is usually smooth at this time and exchanges can be mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.
*Note: With Mars Retro, you are more likely to be working on your Self & current relationships, rather than initiating new ones. But with the trine, it should allow some of the renegotiations to go a little smoother if needed.

8/8 ~ Mercury Rx (communication) ~conjunct~ Sun (self-expression):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is received & reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). However, help has to be invited and if they are not ready, open & receptive, then conserve your energy. This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, then mentally and certainly within your own area because you will be able to take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much-deserved recognition from others that you have worked so hard for.
*Note: With Mercury Retro at this time, I would add that this is a behind-the-scenes process for now. There is an exploration process going on that isn’t done yet so it may be hard to draw conclusions until Mercury is out of Leo and into Virgo, which will help you integrate what you discover now.

8/8 ~ LEO/Lion’s Gate of Power/Cross Qtr:
This is the MidPoint of whatever you got going 6-months ago, in Feb 2018 at the Aquarius Gate. Do you remember “Crossing Borders” 6-months or 1-year ago? (many of you got those readings then and can refer back to them now for new insights). Think: 9-mo gestation process for year 2018, you have nurtured & developed something over the last 9-months that is about to need some physical space to exist. Aug/Sept is all about preserving what is growing strong, solid, useful & nourishing … while releasing density, weight & excess to be composted into something more useful in the season to come. It’s a time of cleansing & purification, as well as gratitude & celebration, in anticipation of the Fall Equinox season of Harvest. Some call this the Pre-Harvest because you can get a jump-start on assessing the year – if you’ve completed your “clearing & releasing” process. If not, then this is the final *purge* in preparation for the Harvest Season. The final Leo/Aquarius Eclipses will help! The Eclipses are considered “course correctors” ~ whether you’re a little (or a lot) ‘off course’ ~ and they are “intensified” solar & lunar energies pouring around and through you (no matter your level of consciousness). Things will be particularly intense now for all of us, but especially those of you with Leo/Aquarius/Taurus/Scorpio activated in your chart.

8/9 ~ Venus (relationships & finances) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility & stability):
This energy can make you feel cool & detached with loved ones. It is time to ‘take stock’ of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving & receiving. Business or personal – relationships must have a balance of give & take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life and start reevaluating the need for certain relationships in your life. I remind you here that you have to do it yourself, but you do not have to do it alone. This energy pushes you to dig for your own fortitude & determination to live according to your own values & priorities and corrections or adjustments may be necessary and fairly obvious at this time. You may feel lonely, depressed or disconnected but it’s just the Universe forcing you to question or assess your current relationships, how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It’s good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don’t give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack & limitation or what is not working, but instead build on the strengths inherent in your relationships (personal or professional) and honor the goodness you’ve created together, as well as in your Self through the process of relationship itself. This is the best time for *Intentional Solitude*, to be alone & reflective because the insights you acquire through this process will help you in a very real way, in the near future.

8/11 ~ Mercury Rx (thinking) ~square~ Jupiter (consciousness):
(2 of 3: 7/9 ~ 8/11 ~ 8/28)
This energy challenges you to integrate your smaller vision with the larger vision for your life. On one hand, you can see the big picture in new ways, but on the other hand, you may not be very interested in the details that make it a reality. This is another good one for expanding your consciousness and thinking outside the box, but as the insights come into your conscious awareness, be mindful of the actual steps it will take to make your ideas a reality. This activation is also great for course-corrections where your ideas are concerned and will open you up to learning something new or bring in a crucial piece of information, just keep in mind that you will have to stabilize anything you start and probably have to review some details down the road because of something you overlooked in your enthusiasm for the new Truth revealed from within.
*Note: With Mercury Retro, this one too is ‘in-process’ so if you do not have to sign any official documents or make any official commitments right now, try to postpone until Sept/Oct. Though that will be when Venus is retro so be mindful of the review going on with your relationships & finances that only happens every 18-months, and in Scorpio, only every 8-years.

8/11 ~ LEO Super New Moon/Solar Eclipse (8 of 9-series):
We get eclipses twice a year, every year, so there is always energy for the change, transformation & radical shifts that eclipses offer. What changes approximately every 2-years is the sign energy, and thus, the lessons & blessings. We spend a couple of years mastering those lessons, like now 2017-18 in Leo/Aquarius and there are reverberations from the years 2008-09 and 1998-2000. Also, remember that it was one year ago we had the coast-to-coast eclipse cross the US, how has your life changed & evolved since the last round of eclipses blasted through your life?

If the Eclipses have altered your course (internal or external) and you have released any rigidness with the Aquarius Lunar Eclipse (7/27), then this Leo Solar Eclipse (8/11) will help initiate the new in a clean, positive, and hopefully fun way! It may be time to Lighten UP! Get creative, have some fun! Make time & space to dig into anything that is weighing heavily on you and find a NEW way to express it. This is the annual New Moon of the New YOU (Leo) and the Eclipse says “New You” to the tune of 10-20 years! We are currently amidst Mercury Retro in LEO (7/25-8/18) which can enhance or extend this period of experimentation with the “new” on one or many levels. I think it will be good for tweaking creative projects before launching them. If your focus is on self-love & self-worth and how you define that for yourself, it may also allow you some customized opportunities (for you) to change your thinking in some way. The world is shifting at such a rapid pace that I feel it is more imperative than ever to know your own *Heart*. Many of us have lived our lives guided by “survival” rather than what is truly in our hearts. And we have discovered, either directly or from observing others, how this can backfire on you. Consider that anything you do, whether for yourself or the world, needs to be heart-centered and rooted in *love* (Leo’s domain) and that which endures, ultimately succeeds. When we do things with genuine enthusiasm ~ humble & pure ~ we can literally Inspire, Awaken & Uplift others and that creates a certain magnetism that creates an energetic flow. The purest form of leadership is to lead by example, so deepen your connection to your own Heart, share your Light (without attachment) but simply for the joy of sharing and that will encourage others to shine their own Light. It’s contagious! Happy Lion’s 8:8 Gate ~ may you rise into your courageous Emergent Self!

July 29 – Aug 4, 2018: Weekly Forecast + Extra

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

Note from Kelly:
So, we’re still in the Eclipse Portal which is brilliantly causing a huge *re-set* for one and all. I have often told you that just because I know what’s going on, does not exempt me from its effects ; ) It seems I can record audios or post blogs but when in the *portal* I’m lucky to be able to do either, let alone both. But I did – so check out a little extra guidance as we entered the portal that is all still relevant and I will make every effort to have something useful (and in all formats) by next week! That said, this week’s one and only activation is an incredibly important one. And the entry + audio below it will assist and guide you as well, for this special activation.

8/1 ~ Mars Rx (action) ~square~ Uranus (freedom): (2 of 3: 5/16 ~ 8/1 ~ 9/18)
This is the “Rebel” energy – so what is your “Cause”? In this case, it should be YOU! If you are clear about your own authentic Truth & Purpose, then this energy is refreshing & uplifting. You are now mature enough that you can acknowledge how change is necessary (and inevitable) and you can also embrace co-creating with this energy to transform your life, now & always. This is Life/Birth energy (awakening to a new aspect of Self) and being “born/reborn” is never easy, because simultaneously, there is a Death/Ending which occurs in the instant of Birth that often gets overlooked. This growth moment is totally worth it – worth it, but not easy. However, if you are NOT mature or not clear about who you are, what you want and what you’re capable of, this energy shines a light on that aspect of your life which you instinctively already know needs an overhaul but for whatever reason you are still holding on to the old habits/patterns. If you are unwilling or unable to embrace change at this time, you will only increase the feeling of being restricted by external energies (read: 2y/o temper tantrum). Your life is a direct reflection of what’s going on inside you. How’s it lookin’? Check your ego, recommit to your Truth and remember that change is GOOD! And if you don’t go voluntarily (read: consciously), then you’ll get dragged to this new level, kicking & screaming and you’ll be so exhausted when you get there that you may miss the beauty in evolving and getting to the next level. (This IS what you’ve been working toward, correct?) Remember with Mars & Uranus, conscious, effective action creates freedom.
*With Mars Retro, it’s best to plan & strategize about when to implement those conscious choices & effective actions once it goes forward and gets out of Shadow (into Pisces by 11.15.2018).


Weekly Forecast: July 15 – 21, 2018

NO Activations this week. Historically, I would leave it at that, however, we are in the Eclipse Portal and journeying through the Summer Retrogrades so there is still plenty of *energy* to discuss. It also gives me an opportunity to do my weekly forecast in a different way than usual. And below, you will find the Energetic Support for July-Aug that I shared with my Venus Circle.

Topics Include: Eclipse Portal ~ Mars Retro ~ Merc Retro ~ Venus Retro ~ Jupiter Direct ~ Pluto + Saturn in Capricorn ~ Chiron – Aries/Pisces ~ Uranus – Taurus/Aries

Summer Retrogrades include: Saturn & Pluto (April-Sept) : Neptune (June-Nov) : Mars (June-Aug) : Chiron (July-Dec) : Mercury (July-Aug) : Uranus (Aug-Jan 2019). This, along with several alignments & activations, indicate that the feminine, receptive, nurturing way is the way to co-create with the energies at this time. Anyone trying to force their will (in any way) are in for an education. Lessons & Blessings abound! That said, what retrogrades are really good for is renewal & reflection. Even though Summer may be the season of go-go-go, this summer is different and it is asking us to slow-slow-slow down, check-in and go deeper. You may ask ‘go deeper where? Or how?’ and I suggest wherever you have neglected the longest. Perhaps you’ve put relationships on the back-burner to pursue a career or vice versa. You may have had any number of things to focus on in the last year or two, but how many did you ‘go deeper’ on (or into)? And which area of life or aspect of your being have you neglected to feed quality nourishment? What is ‘quality nourishment’ to you, here & now? Where are you in a famine? That’s most likely the area that needs the most attention.

Mars & Venus bookend the Eclipse Portal in an interesting way. Eclipses signify change. That change is initiating in the Cancer/Capricorn dept and completing in the Leo/Aquarius dept of your life/chart. We have been working on integration of the Individual within the context of the Community and the energies & efforts will now begin to shift toward supporting your Inner/Outer alignment, your Private/Public self which have to be congruent with who you are & what you want (Mars) as well as your renewed values & priorities (Venus). As you rework your responsibility/freedom issues (ala Mars), integrate change (ala Eclipses) in your personal & professional life and renew your connection to your SoulSelf (ala Jupiter), you are setting yourself up for 2019-2020 in a deliciously positive way.

7/25 ~ Mercury Retro 23* LEO (Direct 8/18 ~ Enters Virgo 9/5):
This is a good time to reflect on how you present yourself & your creative ideas. Check in with your personal filters and individual magnetics to see where you may have gone wrong. What I mean is that we often manifest something other than what we intended and when that happens you have to review your original intent to see where your filters & magnetics have failed you. Filters work through your mind and magnetics work through your heart. During this retro, you are supported to rethink your presentation and take time to open your mind & heart to true inspiration from within. You have a deep well of creativity that you can access and a unique brilliance all your own that you can use to express yourself, and your creative ideas, in amazing new & different ways going forward.

7/27 ~ AQUARIUS Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (7 of 9 in Leo/Aquarius):
During this Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse we have some potent energies aligning in Leo/Aquarius and Taurus/Scorpio. The expansion of the SoulSelf (Jupiter in Scorpio) is requiring a new upgrade to your body awareness & the physical liberation (Uranus in Taurus) possible at this time. Any physical upgrades that you are able to make are going to require an expansion & validation of your SoulSelf.

8/8 ~ LEO Gate of Power:
This period is all about *PRESERVING* what is growing strong, solid, useful and nourishing … while releasing density, weight and excess to be composted into something more useful in the season to come. It’s a time of gratitude & celebration, in anticipation of the Fall Equinox Season of Harvest. Some call this the Pre-Harvest. You can get a jump-start on assessing the year if you’ve completed your “clearing & releasing” process. If not, this is the final *purge* in preparation for the Harvest Season.

8/11 ~ LEO Super New Moon/Solar Eclipse (8 of 9 in Leo/Aquarius):
The Solar Eclipse will have the benefit of Mercury’s review to help guide the seed-planting this Super Moon is best for. Be sure to connect to your innate creativity and true authentic self and create something radically new going forward for the next 9 & 18-years.

July 22 – 28, 2018: Weekly Forecast

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

Note from Kelly ~
I can hardly type this because I am still floating in a particularly *sacred & juicy* zone. I’ve been ‘off the grid’ for only 4-days but it was so magical that ‘time’ didn’t exist. But more on that later … as I navigate re-entry, I find myself plunking down in the pre-Mercury Retro in Leo, which rules my 9th House of travel, delayed at the airport. I wanted to share something with you last week but travel took over & I won’t be able to do the youtube or podcast until I get home. Right now, that’s in the hands of my travel agents, The Angels & Ancestors. Also, last week, we had ‘no activations’ but still LOTS of energy to navigate, so I did create something for you that will be a *bonus* with this week’s forecast. OneLove, Kelly

7/22 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy expands your relationships, personal or professional, allowing you to gain traction in expressing the Highest vibration of this Union possible. In personal relationships, things are sociable, light & fun. In professional or public relationships, things can go more smoothly as folks are more relaxed and easy-going, upbeat and open to exchanging ideas & concepts. This energy activates our innate optimism and natural positive thinking, so it is a good time to look into expanding your knowledge base in some way that makes you more valuable to the team. You’ll have the connection to your instincts and confidence with others that is a winning combination!

7/24 ~ Venus (relationships) ~oppose~ Neptune (illusion):
Beware of delusions of grandeur where your relationships (old and new) and/or your finances are concerned. Basically, you should keep your true priorities in mind and you will be fine, but if you are deluded to any extent, it may be revealed at this time. It is time to balance what is truly important to you in your interactions with others, as well as the vision for the long-term goal. You can have an ideal romantic experience with this energy, but remember true love takes hard work & dedication, while romance tends to come and go. This energy tends to make you give and give and give in a relationship thinking that will inspire the other to respond in kind, and ultimately you end up empty-handed because your motives weren’t correct, you were doing it with expectation (consciously or not), which almost always will let you down. Giving with any expectation always leads to disappointment. A better use of this energy is to focus on unconditional love, altruistic endeavors and anything artistic.

7/25 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~square~ Uranus (awakening & radical shift):
As with any Uranus activation, this one disrupts the normal flow to facilitate a ‘break to realign’ moment. While sometimes disruptive & challenging, the ultimate result is refreshing in some way. Consider the energy that thickens, gathering for a severe thunderstorm, then releasing buckets of rain, for hours, you sleep deeply and awaken to a bright sunny morning with birds chirping unusually loud outside your window. Got the visual? ; -)) This activation is the necessary challenge that gets your attention that something better is available, if you’re willing to improvise and think on your feet. If you’ve been unusually restricted in some way, you may feel restless. Rather than being reactive to the unexpected shift (within or without), it’s best to take a pause for the cause, step back and try to gain some perspective. Remember to be present, too far in the past can be depressing and too far into the future, and you cause your Self unnecessary anxiety. Breathe, be under the sky, invite clarity about the next step and trust your gut. This energy, while sometimes uncomfortable and often sudden, is very necessary to disrupt any illusions/delusions you may be holding on to. It’s time to express your Self in new ways.

7/25 ~ Mercury Retrograde @23* LEO:
Speaking of ‘expressing yourself in new ways’! This year Mercury Retrogrades through Fire Signs, Sag/Aries/Leo and next year there will be an overlap of Fire & Water which will expand whatever creations we initiate this year. When Mercury extends its stay in that department of your life, you get extra time & energy to review your creative ideas and your most inspired dreams. Fire energy has to be directed or it can cause trouble so knowing your own elemental balance always helps. If you’re naturally fiery, then this may feel like a mixed blessing to you, but it’s really an opportunity to slow down and question if the energy you’re pouring into your ideas, at this time, is well spent or being flushed down the drain. It’s time for a review in the Leo department of your chart (house) and check in with your conscious mind (Mercury). When Mercury is there for an extended time, it’s time to review your individual inspiration, your self-love, your inner joy & playful Spirit, your creativity and self-expression. Are you being as authentic as possible? Who leads your life more often: your ego or your heart?

7/27 ~ AQUARIUS Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (#7 of 9 Eclipse Series):
What have you become “too” attached to? And/or what have you become “too” detached from (and need to reconnect)? We have spent recent months navigating the Mutable energy of thought & ideas (Gemini), along with the Cardinal energy of action & choices (Cancer), whose theme continues but now the energy has become decidedly Fixed and it is time to anchor something … in your Heart (Leo). What ideas have you gotten going that need some tending to make stronger & more viable? This Eclipse may bring up revelations of when, where and with whom (mostly Self) you have not been completely (if at all) authentic. Start with the *motivations* ~ if/when they are pure/clean/neutral, then being authentic becomes less challenging. But when you are not authentic, things become more challenging. Now more than ever, we must be congruent with our Inner & Outer Natures in order to thrive & evolve. If we are “serving two masters” (or incongruent on one or many levels) ~ having the private side of your nature be too drastically different from that which you present to the world ~ then you’re going to have challenges, blockages and delays until you get into more alignment. Leo energy teaches us all how to BE it (your Authentic Self), not just “appear” to be it; it asks that you know who you are (then next month, Virgo will perfect it ;-)). What has changed on a *fundamental* level (Cancer/Capricorn ~ personal/professional) for you, that has now made you aware of how vital it is to honor your essential nature (Leo/Sun), so you are able to contribute to the whole (Aquarius/Uranus) in a more useful and delicious way?

LEO/AQUARIUS Eclipses 2018:
The following was written during the last round of Leo/Aquarius Eclipses in 2008-09 but I remind you here again because we are currently wrapping up the series of nine eclipses (over 2-yrs) and the theme has already begun to shift into Cancer/Capricorn with the first one 2-weeks ago. It’s time to consciously wrap up the work you’ve been doing over the last 2-years in your Leo/Aquarius departments of life. This is where there has been a shake-up of energy and a break-t0-realign, which may be confusing & unsettling now but will start to make perfect sense (and the benefits of your self-work more evident) in 2019. See if the following rings any bells for you personally but keep in mind that you have evolved and the planets are in all new positions, lending new & different support this go-round. So if you do pick up on a theme or your own personal pattern and want to change it, now is your chance! You have more support than EVER!

Relevant Reflections: Excerpt from 2008 Post ~ Re-Calibrating Who You Are
Note: Leo/Aquarius Eclipses happened most recently: 2008-09 and 1998-1999. We are completing a 19-year Path started in 1998-1999 and at the MidPoint of the cycle that was initiated in 2008-2009.

The Eclipses are considered “course correctors” ~ whether you’re a little (or a lot) off ‘course’ ~ and they are “intensified” solar and lunar energies pouring around and through you (no matter your level of consciousness).The Eclipses are considered “course correctors” ~ whether you’re a little (or a lot) ‘off’ course ~ and they are intensified solar and lunar energies pouring around and through you (no matter your level of consciousness). Things will be particularly intense now, leading up to the New Moon / Solar Eclipse in Leo of August 1, 2008.

This is where you are, at a crossroads or turning point, when depending on your harvest, it is time to plan the next leg of your journey … with faith and confidence that joy, abundance and hope are yours! Where are you in your evolution at this time? Do you feel like a “new you” is bubbling and about to burst open with life? Or perhaps you’ve just begun your journey of self-discovery and are just getting present to your own evolution, moving a little groggily, but waking up nonetheless? Wherever you are in your development, this month will be revealing and (hopefully) creative and fun too!

There will likely be some aspects of the process that are uncomfortable but that’s the way growth and expansion goes. There are certain things you would not undertake (even the most necessary of changes) voluntarily, so these radical shifts, activated by the eclipse energy, are how the Universe helps things along during times like this. The ultimate blessing is to actually BE CONSCIOUS THROUGH IT!! To recognize where you are and the changes that are happening (whether you like it or not) and decide how you can contribute to this evolution … how you can co-create with this energy.

Think back to February 2008, what did those Eclipses activate for you? (that you are just beginning to get the “aha” moment about now? Most times, the energy is too intense at the time and it is hard to know exactly WHAT or WHERE the energies are pushing you, and Eclipse cycles tend to take about 6mo to clarify the activation, while the entire process can last in as many YEARS as the Total Solar Eclipse lasts in HOURS. So this means that the Leo/Aquarius energy being activated at this time can last up to about 4+ years, putting us right around 2012-2013. So what about you, your core-identity and gift to the world would you like grounded and fully integrated by then?

Also keep in mind that the Solar Eclipse will be activating your physical body, while the Lunar Eclipse will be activating your emotional body, but together, your spiritual body should go to a completely new level. The lessons this month will center around love/heart (Leo) and objectivity/mind (Aquarius). How can you be more objective about who and where you are so that you can get past some of the detours & distractions – and get to the HEART of the matter? How can you connect to your core strength and the Universal Source of ALL and contribute that energy to the community?

Consider the years mentioned above. What shifted in your life that you can look back on and say, “that was fate or destiny” or “I was shifted or changed irreversibly”. The manner, mode or whatever facilitated the shift is irrelevant. Remember the polarities all work together, so Leo/Aquarius takes its turn every 9 and 18 years to teach you more about your inner light and love, who you are and what makes you special or unique (Leo) … as well as detachment, objectivity and the ability to use your special gift to better your community/your world (Aquarius). During 1998-2000, what did you learn about your core Self, your essential nature that was changing at the time? Now, how have you activated, embraced, embodied, and cultivated your special gift since then? Is it ready to contribute to the community (Aquarius NOW 2008-2010)? And where do you want to be by 2017-2018?

7/27 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~oppose~ Mars Rx (purpose & desire):
This energy is a push-pull between what you think or say you want and how your choices reveal who you really are, between your ego and your will. For some, it can feel like a very confrontational energy that often manifests by awakening you to some deeper truth about your own true nature (confronting a new aspect of Self in a whole new way). Of course, confrontations can also manifest with others who have opposing views of you or your situation. This is a personal awakening and a potent midpoint, the most powerful course-correcting time in any cycle, this one being a 2-year Mars cycle (2017-2019). Think about a new sense of identity that emerged in 2017 that you can feel is going to be completely formed or fully developed by 2019. Here, at the midpoint, how is it going? How does your life & choices reflect your true purpose & deepest desire for your life? It is a powerful time, and you will find out what you are made of and if your choices were made from your Higher Self or lower will. You may feel uncomfortable with what is revealed at this time, but you are deeply supported as you recognize your own unconscious extremes and find your new, conscious middle ground. If you find yourself dealing with inner or outer struggles, try to pause and determine the depth of your desire to continue in that direction. Often, we act out of habit and it is time to be truly present. The best way to use this energy is to own any ego issues, put them in perspective and decide to be more congruent with your thoughts, words and deeds.

7/27 ~ Venus (values, relationships & resources) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
Anytime Pluto’s involved the intensity levels go up and you are able to hear/feel your SoulSelf more clearly than usual. Venus brings up that which is most important to you personally, your individual values & priorities, where your relationships & resources are concerned. This is an easy angle, making purification & transformation smoother than usual too. So, what are you ready to change? How have your values & priorities changed completely in the last year or so? Use this activation to deepen your connection with those you love most and allow the relationship to evolve to a totally new level. If you’re working on your relationship with money or self-worth specifically, this activation is a good time for prayer or ritual that supports positive change and your vision for the future. Pour any intense emotions or revelations into art of any medium or do a vision board but give expression to the depths you recognize as coming to the surface of your consciousness.

Cancer Eclipse: Assimilate the New + Eliminate the Old

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives


Assimilate the New & Eliminate the Old
Which May Mean ~ Sideways, Backwards
… THEN Forward!

Cancer time, this year and next, brings us face-to-face with some major choices & decisions which will likely require some form of *Assimilation & Elimination*. Cancer’s gift is processing all that passes through your system, taking in the nutrient (that makes the system work) and any excess or toxins that cannot be “assimilated” must be “eliminated”. If/when you do not eliminate excesses or toxins regularly, then blockages (some form of dis-ease or discomfort) will occur. Quality nourishment (what you take into your system) is vital to the proper functioning of the whole. If you have held on to anything overlong, that has not been put to proper use, then you may be particularly toxic (within or without), and you will have to cleanse & heal first, then you can start to rebuild & fortify, naturally.

Digestion, Assimilation & Elimination are truly Cancer’s domain and one or all may require periodic “time outs” to process all that has come through your *system* over the last 6-12-18-months (Sun/Moon) and 9/18-years (Eclipses). The last time we experienced Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses was 2009-2011, and before that 2000-2002. So this Summer brings much more clearing than the usual to the Annual Process. Keep in mind that, on one or many levels, you have released the past, you’ve cleared space and created new *flow* that must also be properly directed ~ this is a 2-way process of flow (your input/your output).

Your Higher Self does this naturally, but ego/personality has preferences and can cause problems along the way. Your Soul has been very busy working on your behalf, positioning you for greatness, stripping the weakness and letting you know the areas of your life which have been in a famine (for however long, for whatever reason). Cancer time beckons, “come out of the storm (of life), dry off by a warm fire (your heart), replenish your Self with light-filled food and quality rest!” You are no good to your team, in fact you are a danger and liability to your team, if you are not centered, balanced, properly fortified and fully rested. When you ARE, then you can be alert and focused, strong and productive. You are initiating a whole new level of personal self-care and responsibilities with this new eclipse series.

In more practical terms, Cancer is the time to restore your energy, replenish your physical & spiritual nutrients, stabilize your foundation, clear your physical body and personal space of the past, any debris or clutter and assess your inner & outer productivity with special attention to strengthening & fortifying yourself so you can CREATE come the next cycle (Leo).

Eclipses have a 2-3 year cycle of anchoring the energies for bigger 8-10 and 18-20 year cycles. In this case, 2018-2020 is activating the same energies & shifts that were activated 2009-2011, before that 2000-2002 and before that, 1990-1992. Please note it does not necessarily activate the same events, just similar issues, energy & decisions may be on the table at this time. No matter how you cut it, Eclipses signify CHANGE, so being as conscious as possible and having a frame of reference should help you make better choices NOW with all the education and tools you’ve acquired over the last two cycles. APPLY IT! As it relates to your Sacred Space/Home ~AND~ your Contribution/ Heart-Centered Work … consider the following questions:
•What were you going thru then?
•What lessons of emotional balance and responsibility were you completing? and initiating?
•How were your definitions of Home & Work shifting, changing, evolving?
•What were you learning about your ancestors?
•What “primary mountain” were you trying to climb at that time?
•How was your family structure changing?
•How was your career evolving?
•What was your definition of Emotional & Material Security?
•Who were the people in your private/intimate circle?
•Who were the people in your public/professional circle?
•How were you opening up to a new level of existence?
•How was the millennium kicking off for you?
… NOW – How are things shifting and changing in your life today? Consider the above questions for here & now. How will you choose DIFFERENTLY this time?

All Eclipses are considered “course correctors” ~ whether you’re a little (or a lot) off ‘course’ ~ and they are “intensified” solar & lunar energies pouring around and through you (no matter your level of consciousness). Things will be particularly intense during the month before, the month of and the month after each Eclipse.

Where are you in your evolution at this time? Do you feel like a “new you” is bubbling and about to burst open with life? Or perhaps you’ve just begun your journey of self-discovery and are just getting present to your evolution, moving a little groggily, but waking up nonetheless? Wherever you are in your development, the Winter & Summer Seasons of 2018-2020 will be extremely revealing and (hopefully) creative & fun too!

There will likely be some aspects of the process that are uncomfortable but that’s the way growth & expansion goes. There are certain things you would not undertake (even the most necessary of changes) voluntarily, so these radical shifts, activated by the eclipse energy, are how the Universe contributes to your process. The ultimate blessing is to actually be conscious through it!! To recognize where you are, the changes that are happening (whether you like it or not) and decide how you can contribute to this evolution … how you can co-create with this energy.

Also, reflect on the last few cycles of Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses, what did they activate for you? Are you just beginning to get the “aha” moment about now? Most times the energy is too intense AT the time and it is hard to know exactly what or where the energies are pushing you. Eclipse cycles tend to take about 6-months to clarify the activation, while the entire process of initiation takes 2-3 years to anchor the next 8-10 years, with an extended realm of effects for 18-20 years. What do you want anchored by then where your Home/Sacred Space and Work/Contribution are both concerned?

Remember, a Solar Eclipse often activates your physical body, while the Lunar Eclipse activates your emotional body, but together, your spiritual body should go to a completely new level. The lessons this month will center around emotional & material security; home & work; sacred space and sacred work; private & public life; Sacred Feminine & Masculine; Archetypal Mother & Father. How can you be more responsible for your feelings (Inner), as well as what you create in the world (Outer)? How can you connect to a deep sense of belonging (Cancer) and an authentic sense of responsibility for your life and life’s work (Capricorn)?

In more practical terms, Cancer is the time to restore your energy, replenish your physical & spiritual nutrients, stabilize your foundation, clear your physical body and personal space of the past, any debris or clutter and assess your inner & outer productivity with special attention to strengthening & fortifying yourself so you can CREATE come the next cycle (Leo).

Remember, ‘how you start is how you finish’ and Cancer Initiates this quarter of the year ~ Summer Solstice -to- Fall Equinox ~ for there is deep value (and potency) in this (extended) moment in time. Cancer/Leo/Virgo prepares us for upcoming Libra/Scorpio/Sagittarius which will complete the annual cycle. Despite 3-D obligations, clocks, calendars, families, bosses etc all competing for your time and attention, I urge you to put on your ‘invisibility cloak’ and MAKE TIME for several periodic TIME OUTS (or one long one). Take some time to soak in the Light (before it recedes), bask, and while you’re doing that, reflect on all that you’ve created with your energy and efforts over the course of the last 6-mos -to- 1-year.

•How well did your efforts PRODUCE?
•How well did your investments (of all resources: time, energy & money) PROVIDE?
•What is the QUALITY of your return thus far?
•Are there areas of your life BLOSSOMING with overflow, bounty and beauty (and multiplying like crazy)?
•Are there still other areas of your life WILTING, dying on the vine, not being nourished properly or receiving enough Light?
•What do you WANT to do?
•What does your HEART say to do?
•What ‘FEELS’ right at the moment?
•What should you NOT attempt to continue to grow (in your life)?
•What should you pay some special attention to because you KNOW it will bear fruit if you would just give it some quality, direct and focused energy and attention?

I’d also like to remind you that 2018-2020 also brings in Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses around the Solstice times, making it even more imperative that you make any decisions regarding ‘course correction’ at this time. With the Summer Retrogrades, you will have a unique opportunity (in this potent year of change) to regroup this Cancer season. Summer Solstice and the Sun moving in to Cancer Initiates the second half of the year every year and activates a deeply transformative *Integration* process with Pluto in Capricorn. Use this time, at least initially, to gather courage, cultivate integrity, tweak your plan and prepare for the delicious (and fun) creativity you will have access to next month.

July 8 – 14, 2018: Weekly Forecast

NEW YouTube Version or
Podcast Version (22-min/mp3)
of Kelly’s Weekly Forecast

7/8 ~ Sun (authentic Self) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):
This energy triggers your idealistic, altruistic inclinations, but remember that help has to be invited. But if you have the energy to share & to spare, then dedicate your Self to something greater than yourself. Choose a cause to support or help those less fortunate for the sheer pleasure of giving. If your energy is low at this time, it is better directed inward. If you can, take some extra time in intentional solitude, praying, meditating and connecting to Spirit this week, you will be rewarded with deep revelations & mystical discoveries within you. It’s a great time to do divinations, ritual or a ceremony that has meaning for you. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any ‘messages’ that come through or to you. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and dream a little about where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically in 6-months to a year from now.

7/9 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):
(1 of 3: 7/9 ~ 8/11 ~ 8/28)
This energy challenges you to integrate your smaller vision with the larger vision for your life. On one hand, you can see the big picture in new ways, but on the other hand, you may not be very interested in the details that bring it about. This is another good one for expanding your consciousness and thinking outside the box, but as the insights come into your conscious awareness, be mindful of the steps it will take to make your ideas a reality. This activation is also great for course-corrections where your ideas are concerned and will open you up to learning something new or bring in a crucial piece of information, just keep in mind that you will have to stabilize anything you start and probably have to review some details down the road because of something you overlooked in your enthusiasm for the new Truth revealed from within.

7/10 ~ Jupiter Direct at 13* SCORPIO (until 11/8):
Jupiter goes Retrograde annually, providing an opportunity to check in with the Area of Life (House) where it is extending its stay. This year, it’s your Scorpio House, so rebirth & transformation is all part of it. Jupiter helps us learn & understand things on a deeper level, and in Scorpio, it is the deepest possible, Soul level. Review what has come into your conscious awareness during Oct – March because March – July 2018 will facilitate the review, and ultimate reconnection with your SoulSelf and your deepest, core beliefs. Once-in-12-years, we get to do this kind of renewing deep dive into how we channel our individual power to create our lives, based on what we believe to be possible (or not). It’s time to edit your personal Story and prepare to live your Truth at a more embodied level going forward. We have from now until 11/8 to anchor that expanded awareness & connection to SoulSelf, then Jupiter will enter Sag and move on to expand another realm of life for each of us.

7/11 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & liberation):
This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different, try something new & consciously put your Self in situations where you have to improvise & think on your feet. We are in a time of breaking old patterns and re-setting them in more positive, effective ways. You can still live your true values & priorities, but in new & different ways. This blessing from the Cosmos allows you to align with more personal authenticity, which in turn is infused into all that you love & treasure. Relationships will have an unusual energy to them; an established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy may be stimulating & unusual but probably short-lived too. This is not a bad thing! It’s perfect for experimenting with new ideas & expressions to see what your Heart aligns with. Use this energy to soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!

7/12 ~ CANCER Super New Moon/Solar Eclipse (1 of 8):
Any new moon is a seed-planting time but add Super (more alignment) and an Eclipse (break to realign) and you find out that this time is special and will have far-reaching effects based on what you complete & initiate this year. A Cancer New Moon is the time to seed a renewed internal stability, a deeper heart connection and quality Soul nourishment. It is time to initiate something you are willing to be responsible (Capricorn) for nurturing (Cancer) to its full development and releasing to the Universe. Something born from YOU! Cancer is the BEST time to practice deep Self-Care so you are a more reliable vehicle for bringing your creations to life! Where is the *Fertile Ground* in your life, environment or world? What basics do you need to feel loved, supported, well-fed and cared for? Cancer/Capricorn are both about the “basics” in life, emotional and physical security, food and shelter. It’s about *feeling* what needs to be done and doing it, so don’t give in to emotional overwhelm. Instead, as you develop a whole new way of *containing, nurturing and protecting* your life-force energy (fuel/what you eat or feed others), you are subsequently, honoring your own feelings and nature. Remember, Cancer is how we feel on the inside, about the Capricorn reality we’re living on the outside so if there is a discrepancy, the New Moon is the time to seed a new vision.

Every astrologer has their ‘way in’ or their primary focus, and one of mine is cycles. And eclipses run in very trackable cycles, every 9 and 18-years. This Cancer Eclipse activates a whole new series (even though we are still wrapping up the Leo/Aquarius series). The last time we experienced Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses was 2009-2011 and before that, 2000-2002. It is good to reflect on those years as we enter a new round to determine what patterns may be repeating in your life. The value of recognizing any pattern is so you can co-create with it more consciously and repeat less mistakes. Forgetfulness is the primary source of suffering, in my book. So with that in mind, it’s good to know where we are in the annual cycle, which also supports the new eclipse cycle we are entering.

7/12 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~oppose~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy can/will create very intense encounters with others, possibly revealing things about you which you may not have been aware of, misunderstood or have chosen to ignore thus far. This energy provokes power struggles and/or challenges with authority figures where you may have to stand up for yourself. It can also may make you more aggressive, intense or over-bearing than usual, creating or attracting these kinds of situations. If there are any problems within a relationship (personal or professional), this energy will force things out into the open. It will be much easier on you, if you can open a dialogue with the express purpose of clearing the air and proceeding to a new level in your relationship, by choice. Any aspect of your life that you have been “just getting by” will now demand your attention. You won’t be able to do anything less than a complete overhaul or replacement (this can be ANY area of your life but the Capricorn House in particular during years 2008-2024 due to Pluto’s extended stay). Let’s put it this way, any time Pluto is involved, there is usually complete destruction of the current (x-y-z) to make room for the new and improved. This will be by the Universe’s definition, but you get a vote, you can consciously choose too. Ultimately, this is a good, growth & development type of energy/activation, pushing you to the next level … ready or not, here you come so use the energies available to strengthen, fortify & prepare for your own personal transformation. Also consider your drives & direction about 6-months ago, and where you want to end up 6-months from now. This is an integration, that means a time when the depths of your Soul Self can commune & bond with your surface, personality, conscious Self. Like the conjunction (1.9.2018) about 6-months ago, this is about how you direct your personal power on your own behalf, and often, breakdowns precede breakthroughs.

7/14 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~trine~ Saturn (stability & endurance):
This is a smooth, easy energy that you can work with consciously and yield incredible, even tangible, results. It’s a good time to define your terms where relationships are concerned because you are clear about your own values & priorities. Based on your past choices & efforts, positive benefits & rewards are forthcoming. If you’ve avoided responsibility in your own relationships (public or private), then this energy can help get you back on track, with less pain & suffering than usual (when Saturn’s involved). If you can be practical about your own limits and realistic about what others bring to the table, then this energy also supports discussing forward movement, development or spiraling to a new, higher level in some way, as a team. Strategizing about the future, clarifying the vision of what will support & protect all involved and honoring the essence of life that runs throughout is deeply supported by these two getting together in an easy angle. Venus is also the energy of love & money, so it’s a good time to be objective and somewhat conservative where both your relationships & finances are concerned. With this interaction with Saturn, I would suggest outlining a reasonable relationship or financial goal for the next 3 – 6 – 9 – 12 months.

July 1 – 7, 2018: Weekly Forecast

NEW YouTube Version or

of Kelly’s Weekly Forecast

7/4 ~ Chiron Rx 2* ARIES:
This is the last dip into Pisces for 50-years so for those of you born 1960-1968, you are completing a very deep healing process, while those born 1968-1977 are being initiated. This retrograde is useful to both groups. We can all consciously honor the healing of our boundary & sensitivity issues, while opening up to the new directive of self-healing, self-assembling & self-mastery going forward. Chiron is best known as the Wounded Healer, the aspect of Self that came in with a wound to address this lifetime and in your chart, it represents your *Healing & Education Path* – it is all you learn on the journey to wholeness & integration and the healing & education that results from that journey. This 5-month period is going to reveal where you’re at in your own process. This time is deeply supported for a personal inventory or inner review. You have to be willing to face the fears & hurts, accept the losses & defeats, and then get up, dust yourself off & try again. Chiron can help guide this process. It’s time to brave & pioneering (clearly the old ways no longer work), it’s time to follow our instincts (though first we may have to connect to them properly), it’s time to face challenges head-on, and remember that though we have to do for Self (be self-sufficient & self-contained), we do not have to do it alone. So this time is really going to support the evolution of the individual within the context of the community or their relationships. It is all connected, if one evolves (Self), the other (Relationship) has to evolve too (or go away/dissolve).

7/5 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a blessing of Source energy fueling your biggest dreams & visions for your life, this lifetime. You are encouraged to take advantage of the good *vibe* available when these two get together to expand your life’s direction in a big way. This activation is often blessings from previous dedication. You’ve been moving in a certain direction, and it’s like the Path is wider & deeper now, allowing you to connect some huge pieces of your personal Story *together* in a new way. It’s great for learning & exploring anything that will support your forward movement. Some may use the good vibe to veg-out and relax, which for some, may be best. However, if you are stepping up to new levels of your own consciousness, this energy totally supports you as you integrate it all. It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the big picture and the next necessary step toward your goals at this time.

7/5 ~ Mercury (thoughts, communication & expression) ~oppose~ Mars Rx (desires, action & aggression):
This energy is a mixed blessing. It is a time to consider thoughtful action, not impulsive reaction. Any opposition requires we find the balance, in this case, between our thoughts & actions. You may swing between extremes of keeping your thoughts or feelings all bottled up inside, until they explode or spewing every thought that comes into your mind before truly considering why or to whom you are speaking. If you are already imbalanced and experiencing any kind of personal blockage or famine, you may feel a deep need to be heard which (under pressure) makes you want to tell people what you really think, without any filter. The problem is, whether you actually say anything to anyone or not, you still may be giving off angry vibrations which will likely bring more challenges & contrary people into your realm and you could end up in an argument either way. So the only way to really control or avoid this type of combative nature (within or without) is to recognize that only the ego needs to be “heard” in this way, Spirit always only seeks peace, and in this case, balance. How has your ego been leading lately? If you are NOT already imbalanced, but in a strong place, feeling productive and moving forward in your life, then this is a great time to ask those you trust, and who can be objective, to give you some constructive criticism to help you improve your Self or your position at this time. No matter what, it is a good time to pause before speaking or acting and ask your Self what exactly it is that you’d like to express or acquire at this time. Any impulsive, reactive thoughts, words or deeds are likely to bring more problems than solutions.
