First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius + Some Reflections on Virgo Season

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

Today (Tuesday) we reach the First Quarter Moon Phase. With the Moon in Sagittarius squaring the Sun in Virgo, we’re dealing with the energies of Earth and the energies of Fire. Virgo wants a plan and needs to be prepared, while Sagittarius wants to throw caution to the wind and dive headfirst into the next adventure.

I personally know a few people who are strong in both Sagittarius and Virgo. There are some obvious frustrations evoked through the dual influence of these  very different energies. However, although seemingly incompatible at first glance, these two mutable signs can actually be incredibly complementary when they agree to work together.

Driving the Point Home – Pay Attention! Cosmic Weather Forecast for Monday, August 28th – Tuesday, September 5th

 

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

I’m extending this weekly forecast into the following week up until Tuesday (September 5th) because to end it on Sunday felt like a major story interruption and I didn’t want to leave you hanging!

Between now and next Tuesday (Sep. 5th) we are wrapping up Eclipse Season. By the time we reach the Pisces Full Moon on Wednesday (Sept. 6th), the Sun will be far enough out of range of the magical Nodal Axis, that eclipses will no longer be possible for the remainder of this year. Until then, the air continues to vibrate with Eclipse energies.

The most powerful cosmic players in this final Eclipse Season wrap-up are Mars and Mercury – the warrior and the messenger – who have a few special game plays still up their sleeve.

Stay the Course & Do the Work :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for August 21st – 27th

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

A little late, but nevertheless…

The eclipse energy blew through our systems on Monday, while forming an exact trine to Uranus, the planet of rebellion and liberation. The eclipse door has ushered in surprises, transitions, new beginnings… and all that shitty, expired stuff in your life that you have been trying to ignore up till now.

Ah, but Virgo Season is just beginning! The Sun leaves Leo to enter Virgo on Tuesday. Virgo is NOT okay with sweeping the dust conveniently under the carpet, or shoving all the clutter into a bedroom before the guests arrive. Virgo has arrived to help you pick up the pieces and sort through the shit that Leo’s Fire and the Eclipse portals have stirred up in your life.

The Ouroboros & The Total Solar Eclipse

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

Well. Here we are. On the brink of one of the most anticipated, most talked about, astrological and astronomical events of the year.

And I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling bone weary. Exhausted; soul, body and mind. This dying Balsamic Moon has been pulling me under like a rip current the last few days.

The Solar Eclipse will be occurring in my first house, within a couple degrees of my Leo Ascendant. The Ascendant symbolizes the Eastern horizon at the time of your birth. It speaks to how you emerged from the womb to first greet the world. The sign (and planets) on the Ascendant in your natal chart describe both how others see you (the personality you exude, your physical appearance), and how you perceive others, your environment, and this life that you have found yourself in –  it colours the lens through which you see the world. The degree of your Ascendant is the intersection between you and the world. It is active and dynamic – a point of constant becoming. Continue reading “The Ouroboros & The Total Solar Eclipse”

Brutal Nostalgia & Transformative Love :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for August 14th – 20th

[Hey! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

This week gets up close and personal in a big way. Venus is the scene stealer this week with her opposition to Pluto Rx on Tuesday, her square to Jupiter on Thursday, and finally her quincunx to Saturn on Friday, challenging us to “do the work” and take responsibility for what Pluto brought to light.

The remaining aspects to note include the Sun conjoining with the Lunar North Node on Wednesday at 24° 13′ Leo (a symbolic precursor to the upcoming Solar Eclipse at 28° Leo), as well as Mars quincunx Pluto Rx on Wednesday (right smack in the middle of Venus’ intense cosmic quarrels), creating some irritating distance between what we want, and the more difficult path toward continued growth and transformation. Hopefully we make the necessary adjustments so we can take full advantage of the following sextile between Mars and Jupiter on Sunday, sending us on our way into the shadow of Monday’s Eclipse with a lovely burst of energy.

But before all these cosmic events occur, we have our Last Quarter Moon. Continue reading “Brutal Nostalgia & Transformative Love :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for August 14th – 20th”

Mercury Retrograde Begins! But don’t worry, the Goddesses have your back.

[Hey! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

As you likely know, we are on the brink of another Mercury Retrograde. Within the past hour (ADT), Mercury turned around and is now appearing to be traveling backward, from astrology’s Earth-centered perspective, of course.

I didn’t get a weekly weather forecast out by Monday this week because my focus was on creating the Eclipse Primer (see last post), but I wanted to make a contribution to the Mercury Retrograde astro-reporting at its launch, since this Mercury cycle is significant.  The last Mercury Rx occurred April 9th – May  3rd, 2017. It was clearly tied into the Venus Retrograde story, with its other point of emphasis being its prolonged station conjunct Uranus in Aries – a fiery explosion of insights and communication! Remember that? This Mercury Rx cycle will be intricately woven into the August 21st Eclipse story, so stay tuned!

Aside from the Lunar Eclipse on Monday, Mercury Rx is the biggest cosmic event of the week. However, I’ll do a quick summary… Continue reading “Mercury Retrograde Begins! But don’t worry, the Goddesses have your back.”

An Eclipse Primer

[Hey! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

The eclipse frenzy on social media is a little overwhelming to say the least – both astro-related and otherwise! Everything from ominous and dire apocalyptic predictions, to enormously inspirational messages about how this is going to be the month when your life transforms beyond your wildest hopes and dreams.

When I first plugged into astrology news years ago, there was such intensity around eclipse reporting that I got the impression eclipses were this really rare event. And different types of eclipses certainly are rare and particularly significant at a global level – like the long-awaited Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st. But I think it is important to note that eclipses (including partial eclipses) occur at least twice a year, six months apart. Eclipses may only be personally significant or life changing for you if they land within 2-3 degrees of a personal planet or angle. That’s not to say you won’t feel the intense heightened energy during eclipse season – eclipses just might not have the same level of potent ripple effect in your life as they do for others or vice versa.

I hope to publish a post later about the symbolism of the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius (since as some of you know, I’m a little obsessed right now with analyzing the Leo-Aquarius axis; my natal chart horizon line), but before I do that, here are all the nitty gritty details beginning with the absolute basics, up to more advanced descriptions of what is actually happening and how to interpret eclipses according to how they activate your natal chart. I hope you find it grounding and informative!

Review Your Revolution & Remember, Life is Not a Competition :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for July 31st – August 6th

The biggest cosmic event this week is the intense Jupiter-Pluto square going exact on Friday, with Uranus upping the ante on this aspect due to its retrograde pivot occurring the day before, early Thursday morning (ADT). Combined with the week’s build toward the Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse next Monday, we may become more aware of the darker side of Leo Season while under these aggrevated skies.

But first, let’s address Monday’s sweet loving whispers brought to you by Venus gliding into Cancerian waters today. Last week Venus was quite busy. This week Venus makes no major aspects to other planets, but her shift from open-minded Gemini’s curious and flirtatious airy delights, to traditional Cancer’s shy and sensitive nest, is certainly worth noting.

As a childless, female-identifying person in my early 30s, the metaphorical reference to one’s “biological clock ticking,” is one I’m familiar with. Now, I’m personally resistant to the idea of having children for a variety of reasons, but it could be said that when Venus transitions into Cancer, the so-called “biological clock” starts ticking worldwide. As the planet of love and relationships intersects with the desire for home, family, and mutual nurturing, there is an increased likelihood that the pressing question on everyone’s mind will be: “WILL YOU MAKE BABIES WITH ME?!”

…or not. Continue reading “Review Your Revolution & Remember, Life is Not a Competition :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for July 31st – August 6th”
