2014 Starcana Cosmic Dirt Astrology

2014 Starcana Cosmic Dirt AstrologyIn addition to Sunday’s Jupiter/Pluto opposition and yesterday’s Uranus/Pluto square, the strained energy of the cardinal grand cross continues as Mars squares Jupiter today. Many of us may feel the challenge as strong vibrations work their way toward us – but in Mars retrograde – our passion and energy is lowered. We may find ourselves ‘staying put’ (like a spectator along for the ride).. just to see what happens.

We can be a little more cautious as to where we’re stepping with Mars retrograde. We’re recreating something on a deeper level, so we’ll be protective of ourselves and our actions at this time. And even though our defenses up, we can still run into unpleasantries in the the jungle of life. But without much reaction or participation to the outside (whether surrounding us or in the cosmic forces), we have a great opportunity to learn much about ourselves and our instinctive response – which heavily influences our outcome and direction. We can learn how to pick and choose our battles, as well as decide where our energy is most useful and beneficial.

While this aspect has its own positive attributes, it also has a dark shadow side… and those who are consumed with their own fire and ego may require high drama to be understood. A good reminder to stay on course, would be to know that we can not control others – so it is in our best interest to stay in control of ourselves… and our reactions. Ponder the intention, the goal and the result - as the guide. Be still, and stay grounded. Happy Earth day.

Cosmic Dirt Monday April 21 

2014 Starcana Cosmic Dirt Astrology

2014 Starcana Cosmic Dirt AstrologyWhile tensions have been steadily intensifying, sparks are bound to fly as Uranus (awakenings, change) squares Pluto (transformation, regeneration), also triggered with the emotional waves of yesterday’s Jupiter/Pluto opposition. Various disturbances will surround areas of communications, computers, the internet, technology, travel, and mechanical machinery. Use caution now as fires can develop from electrical issues, accidents, as well as severe shifts in the weather - but on the positive side, there is a lot of activity that can involve brainstorming for creative problem-solving, while discovering authenticity and real solutions. Freedom, individualism, and truth will be extremely challenged as we come ‘face to face’ with what has been toxic and slowly deteriorating. From this point, we’ll be forced to forfeit what we’ve become and trusted - to try on a new pair of wings.

I found out that if you are going to win games, you had better be ready to adapt. William Feather

To really live, we must be willing to change, to evolve. The Uranus/Pluto square will influence break-ups, break downs, and/or breakthroughs. We need to remember that while hardships knock us down, they also teach us how to stand back up on our own two feet. Today’s enterprising Capricorn Moon encourages us to build, while Mars and Saturn retrograde provides us with some quality downtime to recreate our path, by repairing weaknesses. So should walls happen to crumble, know that the light will eventually find it’s way in, to show us a way out.

Sunday, April 20 

2014 Starcana Cosmic Dirt Astrology

Starcana Cosmic Dirt AstrologyToday holds an abundance of highly electrical energy. A very loaded Jupiter is challenged by a defiant Uranus this morning, which will require inner adjustment with forceful Pluto this evening. What we may have thought we learned and understood, will be confronted with a different perspective, and much larger truth. It will be important that we open our hearts and our mind -  if we are to evolve.

We can lead a productive day with today’s ambitious Capricorn Moon, and yesterday’s shift with the Sun in determined Taurus. It’s quite obvious with all that’s happening around us, and in the world – that change has been calling. Each of us needs to find our own way, if we’re to move forward and grow with the times. With this month’s cardinal grand cross, and the lunar/solar eclipses – major transformations are the theme - encouraging a deep inner process of emotional cleansing. It will be important that we are aware of the antsy, nervous, and/or irritable vibrations that we ‘choose’ to hold close to us, rather than be quick to blame. Although these uncomfortable energies can create a very bumpy road for the rest of the month, the ride will not be entirely impossible. This can only help us to become a better driver, and a much wiser traveler on life’s busy highway.

Conquering My Self, Aries New Moon

Astrology blog Aries New Moon, Walking on Hot Coals

Astrology blog Conquering My Self, Aries New Moon, Walking on Hot CoalsThe Aries New Moon is Sunday’s cosmic event, which powerfully internalizes our emotions and our ego. While some us can feel uncomfortable, fatigued, or unsettled with outside energies during this time, it is suggested that we take some quality time for ourselves, to understand what we’re actually experiencing. With this conjunction between Moon (sensitivities, mother) and Sun (identity, father), our sacred center harmonizes. We’re taking control to soothe the needs of our heart.

During the quiet time that we take with ourselves and the New Moon, it is in our favor to sit quietly and meditate on our New Moon Blessings. Ask ‘What do I want?’, then listen for an answer. Ask ‘What do I need?’, then listen for the answer. Waves of emotions will be stirred during this time of waiting, including various thoughts and imagination. What we’re most naturally drawn to, will eventually surrender and rise to surface. This forms our seeds of intention, which will be planted into the universe. Keep separate from distractions during your quiet time, so that our heart can send off positive vibrations for whatver we may wish for.

I am the miracle. Buddha

Aries is sign of the brave pioneer, feeding a need for passion and adventure. This is the firewalker, warrior who fearlessly steps ahead, before the rest, to get something started. This energy is highly charged with rocket fuel and magic for inner awakening. If we genuinely crave a new way or fresh beginning, we can embrace our potential and inner power – by doing what we need to do – to make it happen.

At the same time, the Aries New Moon is very reactive with a lot of testosterone. We’ll be quick to step-up and fight for our own selfish cravings, because ‘I, ME, MY, and MINE’ are of the most importance. And should we fail to re-enforce our own enthusiasm and drive for life – we’ll save our skin by blaming someone else.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped. Frederick Perls

So what we may hope to display – or improve – will require a shift from our own inner core – especially with Aries ruler Mars and Saturn both retrograde. Otherwise, old misunderstandings will be revived, along with unresolved issues. The darker side of Aries will come out to instigate heated debates, aggressive threats, and sometimes even violence – to feed our egos and needs.

April Tarotscopes are available.

Fiery energy is intensely magnified and heavily explosive for big changes as bravehearted Aries Moon conjuncts a feisty Aries Sun and rebellious Uranus in Aries, with a square to ‘bigger than life’ Jupiter in Cancer and to transformative Pluto in Capricorn. Much of this is a build-up as to what lies ahead as chaotic disruptions are delivered by April’s Eclipses and Cardinal Grand Cross. And without delicate footing to where we tread in the weeks ahead, major breakdowns and break-ups will lead the way… or major breakthroughs are possible if we’re willing to conquer our own self-importance.

I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions. Stephen Covey

So depending on which image needs to displayed, look into your own reflection to understand if yor intentions and behavior are that of a HERO or the VILLIAN. In this mini self-exam, we’ll be able to create new options that can help us to pave a less bumpy road - by strengthening our weaknesses – without placing expectations or judgment onto others.

What if that person – the most difficult person in your life – is actually your highest teacher? What if that person is the person that was put in your life to help you? The meaning of spirituality is not to make you sleep better, but to awake you, and you will not awake if your dream is comfortable. Anonymous

Take your time to think about this, but if you could write a personal New Moon message or affirmation, how would you translate what your heart is craving.. in just two simple words? Whatever words you come up with, will be your inspirational phrase for your New Moon intention. Aries is all about conquering fears and taking action, so if you choose to courageously walk barefoot across the hot fiery coals in the weeks ahead, stay focused on the goal, not the distractions, with those two powerful words as your personal mantra. Wishing you a blessed New Moon.

Tarot insight from Temperance/KingSwords: We find direction when we trust our heart.

On a personal note… thank you for your inquiries and personal thoughts regarding the earthquake last night. I don’t always have the time and energy to personally connect with each of you individually, but I’ve listened. As some of you may already be aware, I ‘intuitively’ experience storms and earth shifts, like a tuning fork. I log information as data on my blog Earth Speaks as earthy events take place within a few days or a few hours. 

With the challenging skies ahead in April, there is a strong potential that there will be a major change in our weather system and earth’s foundation. ‘Major shake-up’ is the theme. To avoid giving in to anxiety and fear of any sort, preparation and balance should be sought, so I thought I’d share a few personal thoughts.

FYI – Whether we’re frightened by the stories of sun flares, a grid failure, earthquakes, wind storms, or a simple power failure from a lightening storm… we should ALL have some sort of an emergency back up system. If we plan accordingly; either with a generator, or with an emergency box filled with flashlights, batteries, candles and lighters for heat and light, along with extra containers of water, boxed food and canned items for food, basic medical supplies, and the right weather gear – we can help to settle our own mind. In case of an emergency, communications by text are said to be more reliable, since an overload of phone calls may limit availability. Weather apps can also be helpful with what is brewing.

The fact is, that IF and WHEN Mother Nature decides to strike… none of will be able to stop it from happening. The only thing we can do is prepare. To simply hope for the best and rely on the government, the police, an ambulance, or anyone else for help is not the answer. Learn to participate in simple survival basics. Knowledge is power.

For more tips to keep you prepared and safe – in any situation or disaster – check out some of these helpful links:

Without electrical power or cellphone service, you won’t be able to view any of this information online for referral – so be sure to print out your basics on old fashioned paper. Keep it somewhere safe, preferably in a resealable plastic storage bag – to avoid damage from wetness. After preparation, practice meditation and learn stillness to quiet your worries and nervous anxieties.

Pursuing Life, Sun enters Aries

Astrology, Sun in Aries, Inner Compass

Astrology, Pursuing Life, Sun in Aries, Inner CompassA long cycle comes to a close as powerful Sun moves out from the sensitive waters of Pisces, and enters the fiery flames of pioneering Aries on March 20. As the Sun shines brilliantly in this transformative light, this cosmic shift will offer a burst of energy during the next four weeks.

Cardinal energies are highly activated now, including next month’s Grand Cross and Eclipses. Action with change are on the rise. On one end, some will experience an increase with mojo, fearlessness, and daredevil confidence. Other’s can become more arrogant, angry, and aggressive. This inner radiance triggers brave steps into the unknown – which leads to brand new starts and fresh exciting beginnings, which is ideal for the Spring Equinox. And like those young seedlings that reach from the darkness for sunshine and new life; we are also reaching for new life. We’re taking control, to make it happen. These cosmic vibrations set motion to a much needed change, with the potential of the starting something really big, or something completely ‘off the wall’ with innovative Uranus in Aries. With the South Node also in Aries, we may be encouraged to remain right where we are, which can stunt growth. This new cycle is about reaching outside of ourselves, for others… using self-reliance and individual uniqueness.

I am the miracle. Buddha

With new awareness received from the recent Virgo Full Moon, we’re releasing doubts and confusing emotions. And waiting to be discovered in the near distance, are interesting projects, new work opportunities, and a new confident you. But of course, none of this is going to happen all by itself.. so we must step away from regular routines – in order to create our dream, or maybe re-approach our New Year resolution. Be sure not to put too much pressure on yourself if you should run into obstacles, blocks, or lack of energy. With Mars and Saturn retrograde, it’s best to pace ourselves now, so that we can be fully prepared and certain that we’re heading in the right direction. So do pursue, just to begin. We can always redesign and finesse later.

When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard’, I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’ Sydney J. Harris

In honor of the energy of new beginings, along with Spring Equinox, International Astrology day, and the Sun in Aries, strive to connect with your inner compass. Intuitively listen to the calling in your heart, to find motivation for this new journey. And if you’re ready, you can recreate a brand new passion that allows you to indulge in your hunger for life. Tarot insight from NinePentaclesrx/KingPentaclesrx: Despite the weaknesses and cracks, we’re still holding on.

Heart Awareness, Virgo Full Moon

Virgo Full Moon

Virgo Full MoonA Virgo Full Moon rises this afternoon. As she peaks in her lunar cycle, emotional tides fluctuate. Vulnerabilities are stirred, causing soulful cravings to float to the surface. The possibility to react and defend ourselves can increase; should we lack awareness or self-control.

The Virgo Full Moon delivers a brilliant light that guides us onto a well-lit path. As we walk in this light.. what had been hidden in the midst of the darkness, shadows, and secrets; shall be revealed. If we’re acquainted with the sensitivity of this energy, as well as conscious of our surroundings, we’ll stumble upon some much needed answers – when we’re genuinely available to listen.

There is no enlightenment outside of daily life. Thich Nhat Hanh

We’ll be pulled in two separate directions under the Full Moon’s influence. While we hold onto to what is easy and feels safe, we’ll receive a calling that requests that we reach outside of our comfort zone. This opposition between the dreamy Pisces Sun (Father) and the practical Virgo Moon (Mother) will require some flexibility, as well as adjustment if we are to relate with others comfortably.

With the Full Moon quincunx Mars retrograde, our fuel is low, and our energy level is on emergency reserve. So as we release our own individual truth today, will we react and defend? Or will we create something good and beautiful by going with the flow? With Mars retrograde in Libra (relationships, partnerships) and Saturn retrograde in Scorpio (death, transformation), we can experience what we’re holding onto, that supports inner walls of resistance – while limiting our potential and growth (Jupiter Direct). This is a fine time to stop in our tracks, so that we can remove, reshape, and restructure. We can create great movement, when we bleed within. As we do so, we can re-energize our own mojo, while bringing our passion and pursuits back to life.

The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently. Pema Chödrön

Mercury (thoughts, communications) will move from sharp Aquarius to sympathetic Pisces on Monday, so the way we look at our world during the next three weeks will slowly shift and soften. Check out your personal March tarot card for additional guidance. In the meantime, be like the Full Moon; Move past what internally dims  our true shine. Allow compassion and understanding to be of service to others, and to ourselves. Tarot insight from KingWandsrx/SevenWands: Victory is gained through curbing too much ego.
