Happy Solar Eclipse in Leo!

Happy Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo! Where I live, the eclipse occurred early this morning, August 11th, 2018.

It squared my mid-heaven. I’m feeling it.

Right now the Nodal Axis is traveling through the Leo and Aquarius axis (as it has been since May 2017), with eclipses lighting up both sides of the polarity since February 2017. The North Node (the direction of our personal growth) has been moving through Leo, while the South Node (a point of release, surrender, and decrease) has been moving through Aquarius.

Solar Eclipse in Leo – Shine like the Star You Are :: Cosmic Weather for August 6th – 12th

You’re special. Shine like the star you are.

Sometimes Leo Season sentiments sound cheesy and cliche,  and echo of statements from kindergarten where every scribbled drawing got awed at, and being king or queen of the playground was a coveted position. As we grew older expressions like “you’re…. special” acquired somewhat of a derogatory connotation.

But you are special! As in: uniquely different from the rest of humanity in so many beautiful, remarkable ways. Everyone is. The more we truly, deeply believe this, the less we need to prove our special value by trying to act superior to others.

Eclipse Season July 10 ~ August 16 :: Schedule of Events

Hi! It’s Eclipse Season again!

And I created a handy ‘Eclipse Season Schedule of Events’ to guide you through!

Eclipse Season encompasses a ~36 day period that occurs every 6 months and typically includes a pair of eclipses – both a new moon solar eclipse, and a full moon lunar eclipse.

This time around, we’ve got 3 eclipses coming our way this summer. 2x Solar Eclipses and 1x Lunar Eclipse! Lucky us!

Eclipse Season is a time of heightened change, transition, and intensity. Continue reading “Eclipse Season July 10 ~ August 16 :: Schedule of Events”

Managing the Inflammatory Response :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for July 2nd – 8th

 

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine acquired a really deep splinter. There were no visible signs of it on the surface, although there was some pain when pressure was applied to the area. There was nothing to pull on with a splinter, so she ignored it.

Over time, the area became slightly red and swollen, and eventually the swelling formed around a protruding nodule – the inflammation, part of the body’s immune response, was literally pushing the splinter out of the body on its own. It resolved itself without reaching the point where medical attention was required.

What does this have to do with astro? Continue reading “Managing the Inflammatory Response :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for July 2nd – 8th”

“Creativity takes Courage” :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for January 29th – February 4th

Eclipse Season is upon us once again!

Eclipse Season occurs when the Sun is within about 18 degrees of the Lunar Nodal axis. Therefore, Eclipse Season began around the time of the Capricorn New Moon late on January 16th. The air will be swirling with change  and synchronicity until Eclipse Season ends around February 21st. Eclipse Season can feel like a bit of a whirlwind – kind of as if someone hit a fast-forward button on life.

The last Eclipse Season was six months ago during August 2017 (they’re always about six months apart). Continue reading ““Creativity takes Courage” :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for January 29th – February 4th”

The Beauty of Wilted Flowers :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for December 11th – 17th

[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]

As of today (MONDAY), Saturn is now at the 29th degree, the final Anaretic degree, of Sagittarius . The countdown to Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn on December 19th/20th continues! Just over a week remains (…between now and the end of my Saturn Return, hallelujah).

Here at the 29th degree – the degree on which Mercury pivoted and first began its retrograde – Saturn in Sag is scrutinizing, probing, examining, and bringing a serious sense of urgency to our actions and big decisions.

What is your Truth? Are you in alignment with it? Continue reading “The Beauty of Wilted Flowers :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for December 11th – 17th”

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. Continue reading “Stay the Course & Do the Work :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for August 21st – 27th”

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”

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!
