The month of October is a chaotic one astrologically. Much of this year has been, but October is the month of many things. Already a time of heightened senses as the viel to the spirit world thins, and the Autumn season sheds it's skin like the leaves of change.
Celestial dream weavers, welcome to my collection of Quirky Astrology musings, spiritual wellness, pagan poetry, aura healing and some short stories to read on the road to discovery...
There is more to life than meets the eye, of that I am certain, but astrology is a compass for our inner world, and a gift from the heavens. Used throughout history, astrology was once regarded as a mathematical study and still is to some, perhaps to those who have past lives rooted deep within the earth.
So join me, as I share my passion for astrology and navigate my way through the planets to the best of my abilities. We are all on a journey of learning and evolving after all. I share my advice, thoughts and predictions for the years ahead. Just one humble astrology lover under the map of our electric sky.
Simply a conduit for the art of astrology, I find myself on a journey to somewhere. The fool on a quest up the mountain, but one in which I feel compelled to share. Be blessed under this blanket of stars. Here are some musings from a mystic. There is no coincidence that you are here...
So we had the largest moon of the year on August 31st, It was a super moon in the sign of Pisces. I was in a little town called Alcudia in Mallorca, Spain. The view of the moon was spectacular, vibrant and shinning vividly in the clear night skies.
In astrology, aspects refer to the angles formed between two or more celestial bodies within a birth chart. These aspects provide information about the relationships, energies, and interactions between different planets, points, and angles in a person's chart.
August is an odd month astrologically, for many reasons, but to start it all off we have a Super Moon in Aquarius. Actually we have two full moons this August which is unusual. The second full moon will be in Pisces at the end of the month, and is also a super moon.
Today is the feast day of Saint Mary Magdalene, so I was inspired to write something on feminine energy. Venus is also going retrograde today, with the nodes of fate changing like clock work, so it's a big day energetically. Spikey energy like the thorn of a rose, vibrant and red as the lips of Lilith. I am feeling the healing energy of this retrograde.
Cosmic blessings for the New moon in Cancer today. We have been blessed with a chance to manifest the new again. As Venus is about to retrograde unusually for four months, we are currently residing in what is called the shadow of the retrograde, a period of time before the retrograde itself. Usually it lasts a week or so depending on the retrograde.
Mars enters Virgo today, and I'm not enjoying the funky atmosphere. I guess I could sum it up as Monday blues because you're back at the office, except I don't work in an office. I imagine this is how they must feel every Monday, like the life has been sucked out of them. Or maybe I'm just being a bit pessimistic. I am an Aquarius after all and I'm still feeling that pull of Plutonian energy, even if it is retrograding in Capricorn, it's still heavy and grinding. Intense.
It's July 1st and today there's a Cazimi in Cancer, while there's a dance between the planets Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. This portal of good luck is an important one. A Cazimi is where a planet's orbit is within 1 degree of the Sun. When this happens the planet, in this case Mercury, is in an enchanted state. As Mercury rules the mind, this Cazimi shines light on our mind.
How I’ve missed the warm sunshine and the cold waves licking at my toes. I woke up filled with a heavy kind of fog that surrounded and engulfed me this morning, a heavy feeling that I just couldn’t shake. I remembered a cold day in January. I wanted to be hopeful for the year ahead, I really did, but little did I know that my path was fated for change.
Today the sun stood still, momentarily. This is what’s called the summer solstice. Celebrated by many ancient traditions the solstice marks the start of summer. A festival of light, to celebrate the darker times of ancient cultures forgotten by the mystery of time.
