Can’t make it Live? It’ll be recorded & sent to all who register.
*NOTE* We are deeply grateful for any/all donations which go to
support the technical aspects of putting together this celebration.

Shanta & Kelly have collaborated for 10+ years, communing with the Angels & Ancestors, sharing the messages & tuning into the energetic support of each season. Join us as we celebrate the Equinox and honor the true balance that is available within & around us. Join us as we connect to Heaven & Earth and gather energy, nourishment & support for moving through the last quarter of 2017.

As many of you know, I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida, which just experienced Hurricane Irma, so this is my first time online and able to post anything. Actually, we were tremendously lucky in my area (as of last night, we have water, power & intermittent internet), but there are still many without power or basic services, grocery shelves are still only half-stocked or closed altogether and so are gas stations so we need to continue to hold everyone in our prayers. And I wanted to thank all of you who sent emails/texts/phone messages to me! It means a lot to feel your prayers & energetic support in challenging times. You may have heard me joke that just because I know what’s happening (with the planets) does not exempt me from the effects ; -) and the Eclipses alone have re-set all our systems in one way or another. At the very least, we are closing & initiating a new 19-year Path and Nature is just supporting us as we trust this new level and discern the first next step. To that end, I have added some additional energetic support to the Weekly Forecast (see below) and wanted to make sure you knew that Shanta & I are getting together to celebrate Equinox and offer prayers for the world. Please consider joining us this Friday/Sept 22nd @8pm (eastern) ~ all are welcome!  Click Here to Register

9/17 ~ 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 times 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, though 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, as you soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!

9/18 ~ Vesta Enters LIBRA (until 11/15):
Vesta takes about 4-years to make it through all 12-signs, so we haven’t had this opportunity/activation in Libra since 2013-14 and won’t again until 2021. Vesta rules what is sacred to you, where you place your deep focus, dedicate your energy & channel your passion. Often, because of this intense focus in one area, there is neglect or a famine in another area, something you have to give up in order to truly commit. This 2-months, what is sacred is Libra: balance, reciprocity, harmony, beauty, culture & conscious equal partnership – with ourselves, each other and the planet. This is always the goal when any planet (or asteroid in this case) animates Libra, but when Vesta is there, it indicates that it is time to dedicate some intense focus on how we relate and who we relate with, while we renew our commitments across the board (personal & professional). How can you make inner balance & outer harmony, not just important, but sacred?

Cycle Sidebar: Ok, y’all know ‘cycles & patterns’ is my thang! so when Vesta hit Libra, I felt like a broken record saying that we’re redefining & renegotiating all relationships again. I wondered why it felt like there has been some important planet/asteroid in Libra every year forever now and it’s practically true. We have had some intense focus, in the Libra departments of our charts, starting with Saturn in Libra 2009-2012. That is 8-years, ironically a Venus cycle and Venus rules Libra. What happens in a Venus cycle is a full cultivation of values & priorities (and often, relationships/jobs) run their course. So essentially, we have been redefining our values & priorities around our personal & professional relationships intensely for the last 8-years. We started with Saturn, getting real, making the hard assessments, and ultimately, choices and realizing just how out of balance things have really gotten in the last 28-years (or if it helps, the following years would’ve been pivotal & related: 1983-1985 / 1988-1990 / 1996-98 / 2003-2005).

I suppose this requires a longer article, but suffice it to say that as the reality of your relationships’ various strengths & weaknesses became obvious during 2009-2012, a couple of other key players came along in 2014 to intensify the focus around what is ‘sacred’ to you, what you deeply (and truly) desire, what Path you want to walk through life with others, which all led to now, 2017 with Jupiter in Libra illuminating all that we’ve learned about ourselves and each other and expanding our consciousness to what is possible if we integrate truth, fairness & integrity into all our relationships.

9/19 ~ Venus Enters VIRGO (until 10/14):
Venus (values, priorities, resources, love, art, beauty, culture) in Virgo (earthy wisdom, systems for living & natural timing) is a time to focus on healing the mind/body connection and perfecting the Spirit-in-Human-form. The current values & priorities should focus on how well your own systems for living are serving you and where you need to simplify your life in order to be more effective. As Virgo precedes the Libra focus of relationships and the response of others (to you), I recommend you keep the focus on you, and what your mind, body & spirit can actually handle & manage on a day-to-day basis. It’s time to release the nonessential, extraneous or redundant and make room for more quality nutrient, inner clarity & self-discipline. It’s time to focus on quality control and question everything ~ is it relevant & useful? Is it worth it? Is it practical? Does it make sense for me personally? Is it natural? Is it really important or valuable? Venus rules our romance & finance departments and in Virgo, you have to ask: does it actually work?

9/19 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind):
This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload and very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation – not making important decisions or commitments for a week or so. Communication with others is challenged, another reason to only communicate with your Higher Self – or at least check in more often this week! Don’t believe everything you read or hear. Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision – others’ vision will be blurred and clarity will remain just out of reach.

9/20 ~ VIRGO New Moon:
… comes every year and presents us with an opportunity to reboot the *System* ~ which usually entails creating a whole new routine as well. Theoretically, during the last lunation (Leo/Aquarius), we decided what we were going to express (more authenticity) and invest in both Self & Community (more value & new priorities). Now, Virgo-time supports integrating all that you have recently learned about your core essential nature (Leo), into a new routine and creating a completely new system for living, that will support you better in the here & now. It’s time to digest, assimilate & integrate the last 9-months specifically. Also deeply supported this month is acknowledging (and releasing) any regrets, mourning any true losses or deaths and deepening your dedication to that which is vital, strong, healthy, evolving & alive (within & around you).

Pre-Harvest *Assessments* (Aug/Sept) always reveal what does or does not support your Physical & Spiritual Selves. Twice a year (Feb/Mar & Aug/Sept), we have to take time out to check in on the Physical Body (Virgo) & Spiritual Being (Pisces). If you’re healthy, great! But if you have pushed yourself to the limits, it’s time to pull-back and recalibrate. We also have to check in with our Spiritual Being. If your practice is strong and supporting you, great! But if you have neglected your yoga or meditation, silence or sleep, again, this is the best time to recalibrate. This is “pause-for-maintenance” time, which leads to Libra New Moon (10/19) when *NEW* Relationships & Collaborations will present themselves and by then, you will want to be as clean (Virgo) and centered/clear about the vision (Pisces) for your life as possible.

We are coming out of Fixed energy (Leo), which has activated both the need to stabilize certain things, as well as release (permanently) some aspect of Self, so that your life can actually work, in the physical reality you’re currently living. That said, no matter how bad it is, change really is only one decision and a renewed commitment away. Virgo energy helps us process & assimilate all that has completed/died/left/ended and make the necessary arrangements for new life to come in and thrive. Think: Nesting in the sense that you are preparing space for something new in your life. But because it is Virgo, it is more about how this new life/energy/direction is going to actually work into your natural rhythm & daily routine.

*IF* you have made a ton of new connections & friends recently, your individual creativity has been activated, and your heart engaged, then Virgo energy comes in and helps you create a new system and get used to your new rhythm. It’s time to create a whole new daily routine that better supports who you are and are becoming. We’re all finding various personal systems and regular routines (that have historically worked) are now obsolete and no longer work (for whatever reason). That is always a clear indication that it is time for a new one. And *IF* you are able to create one (while tweaking and leaving it open to ongoing revisions in the beginning), then when Libra comes next, you’ll be able to really make those connections with others, personally or professionally, and create some powerful new relationships & collaborations.

However, if you have spent the last month of Leo examining your own self-worth, wondering why you magnetize certain things & people, and repel others, and generally feeling like the life you’re living does NOT reflect who you are in your heart-of-hearts, then the annual dose of Virgo Medicine will help you heal aspect(s) of Self that will enable you to be in a better position to take full advantage of the coming opportunities in Libra.

That said, because we are on the other side of the Eclipses, you can use this month to restore your energy, replenish your Self, tend to your health & fitness, and create a daily practice that supports your current goals & aspirations. If you are resistant to doing whatever it takes to strengthen that trust within (your intuition), just note that the road will be that much more challenging for you. If you resist change and seek to control anything or anyone outside of Self, you are in for a bumpy & painful ride. If you want things to “go back“, you will be disappointed. So rather than resist the changes disrupting your life at this time, try silence, deep breaths, and intuitive, heart-centered decision-making. Use the earthy, practical energy of Virgo to direct the current powerful flow of energy, get present to here & now and take things one step at a time.

9/22 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~trine~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
This activation makes any deep delving within easier and more fruitful. It encourages you to ask the deeper questions, clarify your deeper feelings and trust your intuitive gut-feelings that are telling you something has to die so some other aspect of your consciousness can live. You will want to explore your inner Self, sort through recently gathered information and try to understand better what your natural process really is. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books & music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not, then your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well, so best to talk to a trusted advisor or wise elder. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force your ideas on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you can be more objective and prioritize better.

9/22 ~ FALL Equinox:
Harvest is about assessing and gathering all that you’ve created for the year, and ultimately, reaping the rewards of all your hard work and labor. Some of your *Harvest* will be tangible, in that, creative projects that can/will bear fruit now that they are complete, stable or in place … and some of your *Harvest* will be intangible, as you have further cultivated your own Being over the last year and now you (and others) can benefit from your personal integration & renewed strength.

Renewing your connection to Balance and cultivating this inner alignment with your Higher Self, will inspire the goals for the remaining quarter of the year. Equinox is a time of BALANCE. It is time of balance between Light & Shadow and takes us from movement out in the world, to more inner, “work with what you’ve got” energy, using your resources and creations to build on & expand, primarily behind the scenes in preparation for Spring Initiation, 6-months from now.

Sept 10 – 16, 2017: Weekly Forecast

9/12 ~ 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 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 goals for the next 3 – 6 – 12 months.

9/13 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is making negative assumptions that there is no support for you when in truth, you haven’t asked for any and *help must be invited*. Saturn brings up our relationship to Time, and some people may feel restricted, as if life/other/outer is too demanding and there’s never any time just for the individual. This activation is a push to grow. It’s time to hold your own structure in some way and reclaim your Inner Authority (also Saturn’s domain) to direct your life. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there’s no more “wiggle room”. Rather than have a meltdown, take a nap and resolve to wake up with a plan, a strategy for taking the next step, even if that means simply asking for help or guidance from someone older and wiser. It’s time to deepen your dedication and commit to your Self in a whole new way. Recognize any current limitations and work with the resources at hand for now. The Sun usually illuminates the core essential nature or Self, so see where you may be stuck and need to break out of a rut of some sort and trust that taking charge and making a decision and choosing a direction is *inviting help* from the Universe to support your new direction.

9/15 ~ 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!

9/16 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy):
(2 of 2: 9/3 & 9/16)

I have to preface this with two things: (1) is when Mercury is involved, it is a relatively fast-moving energy. (2) is when Mars is involved, being the lower version of power (Pluto being the Higher version), reminds us that with power, also comes responsibility. Now, that all said, the positive expression of this energy is that you can control your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results. This heightens your intellectual ability and mental capacity (for better or worse). You will be able to clearly articulate your thoughts and you should have quick, effective responses. If you maintain your integrity, this is an excellent time to ‘fuel’ major creative expression. If this energy manifests its negative side, it can make you petty & combative, arguing over nonsense and wasting precious time & energy in ego control-dramas. And if it is not coming FROM you, it is just as possible to be coming AT you (from others). This is the best time to put your energy (Mars) behind your thoughts, ideas and words (Mercury) and get creative. The power of this pairing is that they are occupying the same space, essentially energizing each other and initiating a new 2-year cycle.

9/3 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy): (1 of 2: 9/3 & 9/16)
I have to preface this with two things: (1) is when Mercury is involved, it is a relatively fast-moving energy. (2) is when Mars is involved, being the lower version of power (Pluto being the Higher version), reminds us that with power, also comes responsibility. Now, that all said, the positive expression of this energy is that you can control your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results. This heightens your intellectual ability and mental capacity (for better or worse). You will be able to clearly articulate your thoughts and you should have quick, effective responses.

And if it is not coming FROM you, it is just as possible to be coming AT you (from others). This is the best time to put your energy (Mars) behind your thoughts, ideas and words (Mercury) and get creative. The power of this pairing is that they are occupying the same space, essentially energizing each other and initiating a new 2-year cycle.

9/5 ~ Sun (ego & essential Self) ~oppose~ Neptune (illusion & delusion):
Where Venus oppose Neptune is about your relationships & finances, this Sun activation is more about YOU, the individual. And any opposition requires that we find the balance in the middle. This can be a very confusing energy. You will be very sensitive to others and their needs, as well as how they relate to you & your own needs. You may want to withdraw or not voice your opinion just to avoid conflict, feeling like it wouldn’t solve anything anyway. Often, if/when you do not ‘disagree’ (openly) then people assume you agree, which creates more problems. You shouldn’t give in to any temptation of being “slick” either, that will only attract more of the same to you. If you’re feeling unsure of yourself or your position, you may think it is easier to give in to another person’s demands when you really should stand up for yourself. Self-preservation is not selfish, it is necessary, so try to avoid playing the victim. Be honest and up-front with anyone demanding a confrontation at this time, that you would rather gather your thoughts and discuss things later (by then this energy will have passed) when you can articulate your side of things better. Be aware of deception – both on your part and/or the part of others (trying to deceive you). Your discernment is not its strongest under this influence so it is best to be still and quiet until the energy passes. Take this time to do some spiritual, inner work.

9/9 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about your Self that fortify your foundation so that your life can evolve to the next level organically. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released – go for it – this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It’s a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain can/will backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy – use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.

Relevant Reflections: The Fire of Your Authentic Heart

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

First of all, I’d like to introduce a new category on my blog: Relevant Reflections, where I will re-post relevant articles. If you’ve been reading me for a while, you’re already familiar with the joy I find in pulling out old articles (and audios) that are useful & relevant to the here & now ; –) I have a couple that jumped out lately that were well worth the re-read and I am going to start posting them as Spirit guides me to. This one came about as I reviewed the Leo & Virgo Audio Updates, which said we are dealing with a lot of Fire Energy this Summer/Fall.

So, right now (8.29.2017) we are dealing with Saturn in Sag, Uranus in Aries and Mars/Venus + North Node in Leo – that is a lot of Fire Energy, in some pretty important (and relatively rare) placements. Saturn rules our Reality, North Node represents our current Path and Uranus in Aries 2010-2018 has been working on our Freedom & Independence all along. Venus & Mars make it personal during July-Aug-Sept 2017 and have been pivotal in your evolution whether you’re conscious of it or not.

– How is all of the above (your personal path/purpose) going for you at this time?
– How is your Path evolving and taking you in a new direction at this time?
– How is your Reality unfolding as strong & stable or weak & unstable at this time?
– How is your inner balance of Masculine/Feminine? Giving/Receiving? Input/Output?
– Do you have any Fire Signs (Aries/Leo/Sag) activated in your own chart at this time?

If so, you may be feeling it more intensely than most, so radical Self-Care is recommended! Either way, we are all being activated in the Areas of Life (Houses) that Aries/Leo/Sag rule. It is in these areas that we can use this fiery energy for creative fuel & great personal transformation or we can allow it to destroy everything in its path. I have a couple of articles I wrote in recent years that are reverberating in my own world so I thought I would share. This article is from late 2014, so think in terms of all you’ve experienced from then to now (the last 3-years). I love reminding you of where we are in the planetary cycles so you can co-create, rather than be overwhelmed. The following proved useful in reminding me how creative & transformative Fire can be, when channeled or contained properly and how much help Saturn can be in creating tangible results and earned rewards.

Saturn in Sagittarius ~ 2015-2017 ~
Saturn, the planet of your definitions, physical limitations & 3D/reality, is in Sag for a solid 2+ year renovation of your belief systems: do they support & protect you or put you in possible danger because they are incongruent with the reality you are currently living? Saturn Direct (8.25.2017) will facilitate movement that will illuminate things from a higher perspective and push you to ground, contain & direct all that you’ve been ‘thinking’, ‘dreaming’ or ‘talkingabout for the last few months (-to the last 28-years). All this influx of higher frequencies and higher consciousness since 2012 alone, not to mention, alllll the learning we’ve done since 1985-1988 (last time Saturn was in Sag), must be rebirthed, redefined and grounded into a workable belief system that supports & protects you, your body and your consciousness, in the here & now. (A Kelly-Quote: If you’re gonna redefine your reality, then you better be prepared to rebuild it too!)

Feel the *Liberation* from the Old Story ~
Your ideas & inspirations (Gemini) are a reflection of what you believe (Sag) to be possible, for you, others and the planet. When you are ready to experience life in a new way, often you need only ‘think’ it (and almost always when you ‘feel’ it) and the molecules start moving to facilitate that physical experience or manifestation. The more conscious awareness you give to directing your thoughts & feelings, trying things in a new way, learning along the way, and developing your own theories about how life really works (for you), then the more effective you become and living your physical reality can be safer & more comfortable, even lighter & brighter! Feel the *Liberation* from the Old Story, the things which are no longer true (if they ever were). Feel that release from any literal or figurative bondage, especially self-imposed mental/emotional prisons or old/burdensome obligations. Then, anchor trust in your body and create space for the evolved, emerging Truth … while simultaneously preparing to express/tell your evolved, emerging Story! Saturn in Sag will help us all ground a Higher Truth and create a much more interesting Story during this time (2015-2017).

PS ~ if you’re looking for threads to the Story, ala Saturn’s 28-yr cycle, think of the last 7-14-21-28 year marks, the years Saturn was in Mutable Signs.

SAG ~ Nov 17, 1985 – Feb 13, 1988
PISCES ~ May 21, 1993 – Jun 30, 1993
GEMINI ~ Aug 10 – Oct 16, 2000
—-(brief dip back into Taurus: Oct 16, 2000 – Apr 20, 2001)
GEMINI ~ Apr 20, 2001 – Jun 4, 2003
VIRGO ~ Sep 2, 2007 – Oct 29, 2009
—-(brief dip back into Libra: Oct 29, 2009 – Apr 7, 2010)
VIRGO ~ Apr 7 – July 21, 2010
SAG ~ Dec 23, 2014 – Jun 15, 2015
—-(brief dip back into Scorpio: Jun 15 – Sep 18, 2015)
SAG ~ Sep 18, 2015 – Dec 20, 2017

*NOTE – Winter Solstice 2017 brings Saturn home to Capricorn at the exact same time as the Sun arrives this year, making it personal and useful for one and all. Dec 20, 2017 – Mar 22, 2020 ~ Winter Solstice 2017 thru Spring Equinox 2020 – WOW! we will, no doubt, ground a truly new reality by then.

The following *Relevant Reflections* will speak to the fiery energy we are contending with at this time (July-Aug-Sept 2017) and also gives some useful reminders on how to work with Fire in your own life. IN-Joy!!

The *FIRE* of Your Authentic Heart, Deepest
Passion & True Purpose has Been Activated

  Jupiter (Education/Faith)  ~trine~
Uranus (Awakening/Liberation):
(9.25.2014 and 3/3 & 6.22.2015)

This energy supports you for about 1-year as you set Intentions and claim your Vision. That’s not to say that there won’t be some other juicy, potent planetary alignment to support our goals next year but this one blesses the crossover between 2014 & 2015. And if you’re feeling really strong, think in 1-3-6-9-12 year increments and set intentions but know that this first year sets the tone going forward, especially for those with strong Cardinal, Fixed & Fire energy in their chart.

This is a delicious relief for some who have had enough of the Cancer/Aries challenges of the last year or more (personal security vs. independence), though developing the strength & tools to work it out was critical to maximizing the potential of the current blessing of *Fire* energy now that Jupiter has moved into Leo. We still have to deal with the independence/liberation issues that Uranus is ‘cracking us open’ to, but hopefully, now that we’ve redefined personal security and deepened our faith in our own ability to sustain & protect ourselves, Leo energy encourages us to believe in ourselves and express more authenticity in every moment. It’s almost like you rewired your internal system and now you’ll be working on the outer expression & appearance (how it really works in the world). I don’t necessarily mean your looks or physical appearance, although upgrading that too is deeply supported, but this is more about what your unique energy radiates out to the world, and how others receive & respond to your energy. Think: Magnetize & Repel and then define your terms and invite your Higher Self, Angels, Ancestors & Guides to assist you.

Jupiter & Uranus affect groups of people, so this energy is ‘in the air’. If you have a lot of Fire in your chart, this is going to increase it, so you may want to use your Earth energy to ground & contain this fiery time, or at least take some precautions. If you don’t have enough Fire, this will really help you bring in the Fire energy consciously and balance out certain aspects of your life, in a much-needed way. So, in general, these two getting together activate your consciousness in a huge way. There are sudden ah-ha moments and more clarity than you’ve maybe had access to in recent years. Uranus always activates us to learn or try something new or try something in a new way (to the tune of 3-6-9-12 years, a Jupiter Cycle). In this context (with Jupiter) you will want to express something you’ve only just recently discovered or realized is Truth for you, and you’re bursting at the seams to show everyone how you and your consciousness has grown. That’s great, but make sure your new Truth is grounded first. Think of the first trimester of pregnancy or a new sprout that hasn’t totally rooted itself yet, new beginnings are delicate and require extra care & protection at first, so pace yourself with your new discoveries. This activation spans a year (June 2014 – June 2015) so pace yourself and pay attention to what comes up now (Sept 2014) that is re-activated or revised in March 2015 and finds its footing (roots) and finally gets its final polishing activation in June 2015, right around Summer Solstice (wow!).

See this as an ‘unfolding new Truth’ or new aspect of Self emerging. Get a feel for the Fire. It’s a great time to expand your learning or education, get certified in something that you want to share with others, but try to avoid ideas (and people) with more flash than substance. The combination of Jupiter‘s luck (which is really a strong faith & following it) and Uranus’ sudden, seeming out-of-the-blue-ness (which is really a sudden opening in your consciousness that allows you to see things in a completely new way) things will feel very “ordained” or magical or destined. Just stay grounded & present, because often when things seem ‘too good to be true’ – they are. What I’m talking about here is more about inner & outer alignment, faith & opportunity, when the path just opens before you and you have NO DOUBT that this is the (new) direction that you’re supposed to take.

Also unique to 2014-2015 is the Leo/Aries combination. As long as we maintain integrity, lead with the heart, be creative & authentic, remaining free & independent becomes much easier. However, if you are struggling with self-esteem/self-worth issues, as well as being independent and capable of defining who you are/what you want, then this is the year to face your issues square on and make some real progress. Just keep in mind that what these energies trigger for you, is really bringing these issues and/or relationships into the light to be transmuted and purified with this Fire. It’s going to first illuminate the excess & non-essential, then melt it away and reveal your true beauty & innate value. Believe in your Self! Know that you are here for a reason and while your Path is unique for you, we are all sharing this journey of self-discovery & evolution of our planet. Activations (which I can help you with, just reach out) will be personal, social & collective and during the next year or so, we will be creating containers for this Fire to burn safely & productively. Use this potent, creative *FIRE* to connect to Your Authentic Heart, Deepest Passion & True Purpose!

8/27 ~ Jupiter (Your Truth & Story) ~sextile~ Saturn (Your Reality & Personal Foundation):
These two haven’t danced like this in 12-years and won’t again for 6-years. It’s an excellent activation to come on the heals of eclipse season too! So much has changed since 2003-04. What did you get going at that time? What were your measurable successes? How did your personal Story evolve because things in your Reality shifted during that time? Or – how did your Reality evolve because your personal Truth changed during that time? Remember to take the names/faces off – it’s ALL energy! Be neutral and tune back into the here & now. All cycles repeat, but the energy surrounding them and YOU constantly evolve. Plus, we’ve actually been swimming in this energy field for a while now so you ought to know how it feels by now (check your Libra & Sag Houses/Areas of Life). Aug 27th just brings the peak & point of contact, which is a unique opportunity to do some personal prayer-work or intention-setting for these areas of your own life. This activation helps you gain real traction in your life if you can be conscious and practical.

Jupiter & Saturn act very much like peristalsis, which naturally expands and constricts the intestine to move our digestive process along, Jupiter expands & Saturn consolidates, moving our Story & Timeline along. Jupiter moves your Truth & Story along, while Saturn is your Timeline and moves your Reality along. Even though they are considered Social Planets, we can work with them as individuals and make considerable gains in short periods of time when we do. This activation in particular is super-useful because we have the optimism, faith & vision Jupiter is expanding in our world, while still being grounded in the step-by-step process it takes to create this new Reality. You are so supported to finally be congruent, Soul & Personality, in alignment, congruent on the inside and the outside. This allows you to step up and into this evolved Reality that you’ve created with your own Consciousness. And if you’re not congruent but divided within and you’re not living the Reality that you have always envisioned for your Self, then this activation helps too because it supports you tapping into your Higher Self to guide a new vision, as well as your first practical steps toward creating a new stability within or around you.
Now – 2017 in Libra/Sag
Last – 2003-04 in Virgo/Cancer / 12-years
Next – 2023 in Taurus/Pisces / 6-years

9/2 ~ Mars (courage & passion) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & individuality):
This is a powerful combo, however, it has to be integrated and consciously expressed to yield the best results, otherwise you may miss an opportunity for a major personal breakthrough. Mars gives you the courage and Uranus awakens new possibilities within. This is an easy alignment of your actions and your individual brilliance. You may even discover some new gift or talent that has been dormant for a while, but is now beginning to come to life. This energy pushes you to try something new that liberates you in some way you that you may have previously felt daunted by in the past. Because of the easy angle too, this new evolution to the next level should not entail you having to annihilate any other aspect of your life, you will just intuitively know that it is time to change. It won’t matter what others think or say either, because the prompting for change comes from within, so take advantage of this time to experiment. You never know where it will lead.

8/20 ~ Mars (your desire) ~sextile~ Jupiter (your Truth):
This energy will help you figure out what your deepest desires and authentic Truth really are for you. If you are not sure, this expansion will illuminate the possibilities for you. This is a potent opportunity to take things to the next level. Mars often lends a boost of energy, so definitely be active, work in some physical activity (but don’t over-do it), make any presentations you need to make, negotiate any contracts or deals you need to because all is supported for you knowing who you are and what you want in a way that conveys without much effort on your part. The effort required to activate this easy-going energy is to consciously, actively pursue your desires, to expand your horizons by learning something new, by being around other like-minded souls and putting that extra energy behind some worthy project, like … YOU!

8/21 ~ LEO Total Solar Eclipse:
We get eclipses twice a year, every year, so there is always energy for change, transformation & radical shifts. 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. However, just to give you an idea of how rare this alignment is, it was 1918 the last time we had a coast-to-coast eclipse cross the US and since 1257 that an eclipse only crossed the US (and didn’t touch other countries). So this is pretty special. It’s a good day to do something fun & joyful, something that uplifts your heart & expands your life in some way and tune in to the Light, the Light within and around you. I’m going to refer you to this link HERE for more on these Eclipses + Lunar Flip of 2017.

8/21 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination and taking action on your own behalf. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve what is useful and release that which is no longer relevant for you going forward. It’s also a good energy for organizing & clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with (or released altogether). You may be feeling very practical, possibly selfish, but it’s actually your Higher Self prompting self-preservation within you.

8/22 ~ Mars (energy & drive) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina & patience):
This is a delicious & potent combo! This is like a great Father/Son working on a project energy. The Son has all the muscle, energy & enthusiasm and the Father is the brilliant, steady man who directs that energy and teaches in every moment. Internally, this is your Inner Authority guiding your innate desire nature to the tangible results it so craves. Saturn brings the long-term goals to the table and Mars’ energy can fuel your efforts, creating amazing results. This energy enables you to focus longer, attend to the details, overcome obstacles, and get more tangible results of your actions. Normally, these two get together is more the ‘tortoise and the hare’ energy, which can be frustrating for some. However, they are in an easy-angle to each other right now, so if there is any major project which needs your attention, now is the time you will likely be in the mood to tackle it and be completely supported by the planets.

8/24 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Uranus (sudden change):
This is a test to grow that you cannot plan for. Venus rules your values & priorities and an activation with Uranus signifies something sudden and seemingly out-of-the-blue. Of course, this isn’t true, but it can feel that way. The truth is, it is time to do something “different” where your love, finances or relationships are concerned. Making a conscious effort to do things in a completely new way will be rewarded with a lesson and a blessing you would’ve never considered. Due to new revelations happening within you, the immediate response will come from those closest to you. If you’re in relationships (personal or professional) that have reached a point where they have to change or end, this is a good time to try to discuss it openly and with as much detachment & objectivity as possible.
*Uranus is in Aries right now so self-preservation is high on the list these days and we are all finding radically new ways to maintain our independence, as well as our connection to the whole. Flexibility of mind, body & spirit will help soothe any harshness associated with this combo.

8/26 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) help you make quite an impression on others (if you need to). 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 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.

8/13 ~ Sun (your core drives) ~trine~ Saturn (discipline & order):
This energy gives you the direction & discipline at the same time. Use it consciously to fuel your goals at this time, as you will be blessed by your past efforts. You are completely supported to structure your life in a whole new way. It’s time to take a personal inventory, organize your life, especially your home, office or immediate environment. Naturally, this kind of shift will also affect those you relate with in these close environments, so be mindful of others who are not necessarily as *clear* as you may be at this time. A new order is trying to take root, which scares some and excites others, and this activation supports you and your personal definition of stability & good boundaries. You have access to focus & dedication that can set the tone for the next season, as you clarify the connection between who you are and what you are truly responsible for in this life. Evaluate your daily routine and see what’s working and what’s not and move forward with some new choices.

8/15 ~ Venus (relationships & resources) ~oppose~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
Classic opposition: anything with Venus is usually softened, while anything with Pluto is always intensified, and the opposition automatically brings up the push-pull between these two. You are encouraged to tune into your own heart and then you can trust what is rising from your own depths. Also, any opposition gives you a look back at your starting point, so you have more clarity than you may be giving your Self credit for. Either way, this energy intensifies experiences where your relationships & resources are concerned. If you have focused on love, to the exclusion of money, then your finances will probably come up at this time for a rebalancing of sorts. If you’ve been focused on money, to the exclusion of supportive relationships, then that may be your focus. The bottom line is your true values are up for a purification of sorts. What/Who is really, truly important to you? How do you spend your resources of time, energy & money? What/Who are your real priorities right now? Often, we operate out of habit (auto-pilot behavior) or completely unconsciously (Pluto), being driven by deeper forces than we can fully grasp or understand. And periodically, we must allow them to come up/out so we can distill or release them so they become compost rather than toxic. Since you may feel ‘compulsive’ in some way, you may as well use that energy to make a deeper commitment to getting to the root or source of any imbalance rather than let it take you away to feed some unidentifiable famine in your life. Often, this activation tends to make you uncontrollably drawn to someone you know is not good for you, which can only result in problems. This energy provokes manipulation, jealousy, guilt and other negative emotions that always come when you are trying to maintain something that wasn’t meant to be in the first place. Again, don’t try to force YOUR will, it can only lead to a broken heart in the end. If you are already in an intense relationship, beware of subconscious impulses, hidden resentments, unexpressed anger or frustration. Expressing it at this time can be helpful if you present your concerns in a constructive way, however, you will have to be personally strong and vigilant in monitoring your own emotions in order to do that. Ultimately, if change needs to happen in your relationship, this will be the catalyst. This energy is only “bad” if you are unwilling to get to the real root or source of the given conflict. Otherwise, it is like a storm that clears the air and makes everything grow better.

8/17 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Jupiter (expansion & consciousness):
This energy is a happy-go-lucky kind of energy that doesn’t really want to be bothered with the mundane, however, you must not allow that passing energy to get you so off track that it costs you more than it is worth. If you don’t have any pressing obligations, then this will be a fun, relaxing time, possibly with friends having some fun. However, if you have work to do, make sure it gets done first so you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending. On a deeper level, you may have to make some adjustments in your relationships or finances. Jupiter always reveals the excess or where we make things ‘bigger’ (consciously or not). This activation usually helps us realign our true priorities with our grandest vision for the future.
