Chiron in Pisces

The Centaur & Wounded Healer Journeys Through the Sign of Pisces
Feb. 8, 2011 – Feb. 18, 2019

Chiron’s mythology has played a very important role in Astrology and society since its discovery by astronomers in 1977.  Believed to be a comet, Chiron—represented by the centaur— symbolizes alternative forms of healing, psychology, human rights, and mysticism— subjects which have all become increasingly widespread throughout the world since its noted sighting.

Astrologically, Chiron is often referred to as “The Rainbow Bridge” because he links our external world—materialism—to our internal world of personal spirituality and consciousness. Also known as “The Wounded Healer,” or “The Shamanic Healer,” Chiron represents our collective and individual physical, emotional, or spiritual wounds which can be healed using natural, holistic, and alternative forms of medicine. His presence illuminates the area of our life that requires a vigilant awareness and commitment to personal healing. It is this awareness that will allow you to embrace your deepest wounds so you can retrieve the fragmented parts of yourself, and thus be made whole again.

Fittingly, Chiron just left the sign of Aquarius which governs, among other things: the internet; friendships and social groups (noted by the prevalence of social media outlets, smart phones, etc.); and isolation.  It is important to recognize that obsessions to facebook and other new communications, such as texting, can be attributing to a collective societal disconnect from the heart and soul that results in a deeper sense of isolation for many. On a positive note, this new Aquarian technology has created unprecedented and global information sharing that can be used to heal one another and our societal structures.

Chiron last passed through Pisces from 1960–1969 and if you were born during this period you will experience your Chiron Return sometime between now and 2018. Pisces is represented by the separating fish and depicts the separating desires that lead you further and further from a direct heart and soul connection to the divine. Because it is the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces represents culminations. Pisces is the sign most associated with the healing that occurs as we embark on a journey of connection to the omnipresent consciousness that is accessible within us all.  It is through Pisces that we ultimately find the union we seek—the union with our own heart and soul; the union that leads us back to our divine source.

If your Chiron or Sun is in Pisces, or if you have other Pisces planets in your horoscope, you can look forward to this next decade as a time of spiritual, physical, and emotional healing. Chiron’s presence will encourage you to recognize and embrace the dynamics that keep you from achieving a spiritual connection to the divine so that you can achieve your most meaningful potential in life.

Even without a major planet in Pisces, your horoscope will be affected by the transiting comet because it will pass through one or more of your astrological houses. The symbolism of these houses will represent the specific types of healing you can expect to experience during this time.

Healing yourself requires the courage of the centaur, as well as the Piscean attributes of trust, faith, and surrender. It requires intense focus and deep purification of that which no longer serves you as we move into “The Shift of the Ages”, a momentous era of spiritual evolution that first begins within our own hearts.

Uranus in Aries: A Wake-up Call; a Revolution; or Both!

Uranus in Aries: A Wake-up Call; a Revolution; or Both!

Friday, March 11, 2011 – March 6, 2019
Uranus was last in Aries from 1927 to 1935

Astrologically, there sure is a lot happening and I know you are all feeling it. Uranus made its final movement into Aries on March 11, 2011 providing us all with an amazing opportunity to embrace change.

Change is exactly what Uranus in Aries is striving for as it travels through the zodiac sign of Aries. Aries is the sign that seeks unfettered freedom, independence, and brand new beginnings. Combine these qualities with the rebelliousness of Uranus and anything is possible. Uranus represents the brain and lightning speed realizations, stimulating us like a probe to WAKE UP!  Wake up from what? you might ask.

Uranus is the ruling planet of the zodiac sign Aquarius, which represents an altruistic attitude towards humanity that will be covered in more detail in the next paragraph. Aquarius also represents the “water bearer” who pours his divine wisdom from the heavens down onto humankind. According to Greek mythology, Gaia – Mother Earth – was without a mate and yet gave birth to Uranus – Father Sky – who then became her husband. (It is written that Gaia herself was born from Chaos, the great void of the emptiness within the universe.) Gaia and Uranus birthed many offspring who Uranus feared because of their great power. To protect her children from her husband, Gaia hid them all within herself and experienced great pain. Therefore, she asked her son Cronus – Saturn – to castrate Uranus, thus severing the union of Earth and Sky.

This portion of the Uranus-Gaia myth is very important because it depicts the separation of god and goddess, or the divine mother-Gaia and father-sky. When we WAKE UP, we recognize this separation represents the trauma (symbolic of Uranus energy) and the distortion that occurs when we are forced to hide essential aspects of ourselves, eventually causing a schism within our psyches. The Mayans and other indigenous peoples are reminding us that the survival of our planet is dependent upon consciously waking up: we must balance the male and female aspects that exist within each of us; we must recognize the spiritual beings – gods and goddesses – within us all, and we must reunite our heavenly and earthly realms, literally and symbolically.

Uranus in Aries is ultimately asking each of us to rebel against anything that does not bring liberation to ourselves and all sentient beings. Our spiritual leaders are insistent that to heal the planet we must each individually make the changes necessary to heal ourselves. In short: it is up to us to cultivate and nurture our spiritual essence — both individually and collectively, Uranus in Aries can prove a powerful catalyst to dismantle the barriers that keep us stuck and unable to move forward. Many of us dislike change and this potent energy is certainly bound to feel uncomfortable at times. For this reason, it can be helpful to remember that Uranus is futuristic in nature and brings with it the light of awareness, thereby expanding our own personal future and the future of our planet.  Embrace this Uranus cycle as an important opportunity to create the change necessary for yourself and the children who will inherit our beautiful planet.

Following is a message by the Hopi Elders that poignantly captures the critical nature of our current Astrological themes:

You have been telling people that this is the eleventh hour. Now you must go back and tell people that this is the hour! And there are things to be considered: Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your truth. Create your community. Be good to yourself and do not look outside of yourself for a leader. This could be a good time! There is a river flowing very fast. It is so great and fast that there are those who will be afraid. They will hold on to the shore. They will feel that they are being torn apart and they will suffer greatly. Know that the river has its destination. The elders say that we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time we are to take nothing personally, least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.  We are the ones that we have been waiting for.     ~ The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation

The Cardinal Cross Climax

The Cardinal Cross Climax
April 21-24

What’s Katniss Eberdine and Jake Sulley Got to do With it?

Many are asking me questions about the Astrological planetary Cardinal Cross Climax. What is it and what does it mean? Cardinal Crosses occur when the outer planets move into Cardinal signs and have reached aspects that are traditionally representative of great movement and change on a global scale. These planetary aspects shake things up politically and economically, thereby affecting each of us personally.

Whether you are familiar with the term “Cardinal Climax or not, you are likely feeling it, and know intuitively that change is occurring on many deep levels. Our beautiful mother, Gaia is going through a massive metamorphosis during our lifetime, reflecting unprecedented earth changes and events. For many, there is a sense of doom and loss of hope. Simultaneously, for many others, there is anticipated enthusiasm for regeneration and renewal. Researchers and present day spiritual leaders are persistently presenting us with ancient and modern day evidence that implies we are undergoing a “great human awakening”.

Before we delve more deeply into the meaning of the “Cardinal Cross a couple of definitions may be helpful. Let’s begin with an understanding of Cardinal signs. Ancient Astrologers considered the Cardinal signs to be the movable signs associated with the changing of the seasons when the Sun made its journey into Aries (Spring Equinox), Cancer (Summer Solstice), Libra (Fall Equinox) and Capricorn (Winter Solstice). A planetary Cardinal Cross occurs in the heavens when the slower moving planets occupy the different Cardinal signs.

The Cardinal Cross aspect was activated on March 2, 2014 when Mars moved into Libra and began making a challenging aspect to Uranus in Aires, Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer. This Cardinal conflict of cosmic energy is expected to be very intense for not just a few, but all of humanity.This intensity does not mean doom or gloom, but is an indicator of the imperative changes needing to occur on a collective level. That said, you may have surmised by now that this Cardinal celestial signature will have a more direct and personal affect on those with Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn planets in their horoscopes.Cardinal people can be dynamic leaders with a strong sense of purpose or destiny and are not afraid to try new things. There are many wonderful gifts that our Cardinal sisters and brothers offer us and this will be the time to take notice.

Taking notice is something you will not be able to avoid, as it is likely you will continue to witness battles of will during this period. We are also witnessing intense changes on an economic level globally; in fact, the last time there was a similar Cardinal Cross aspect was during the U.S.Great Depression of 1929-33. When any system collapses, it can provide an opportunity for those affected to bring about justice and a sense of order and balance out of chaos.

It is up to each of us during these unprecedented times to take responsibility to restore balance and harmony where we can. Many of you may have heard that sequels to the movie Avatar are in the making. Considered by critics to be a huge risk, Avatar instead broke numerous records as the highest grossing film ever produced. What is its appeal and why is it so wildly popular? Movies tend to reflect our current state of mass consciousness and the title “Avatar” itself is an obvious collective message. An avatar, according to Eastern spiritual teachings, is a teacher who comes to earth to restore dharma, to balance good versus evil. Similarly, the protagonists, Jake Sulley, and Katniss Everdeen of the Hunger Games, listened to their hearts and chose the pursuit of justice. Films like these are good examples of our current culture’s integration of the Cardinal Cross energy.

Justice can only be pursued by following our hearts and not our heads, and through honoring the ancient wisdom that all life forms sustain each other in one harmonious, unified energy field. This is an especially important time to focus on solutions, remain optimistic and continue to cultivate love and compassion for all sentient beings.

Change is an inside job, therefore…

“Be the change that you want to see in the world.”
Mohandas Gandhi

Your Destiny & Today’s Lunar Eclipse

Friday, May 24 – 9:24 p.m.
Four Degrees – Eight Minutes of Sagittarius
Occurs over the Americas

Our destiny changes with our thought; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thought corresponds with our desire. ~ Orison Swett Marden

Lasting 33 minutes and 45 seconds in duration, tonight will mark the end of the first eclipse season of 2013. Although it is sure to be felt, because this is an appulse eclipse, it will not be visible. It is also occurring during the third of seven exact Uranus-Pluto squares and destined to assist in the continuation of much needed change—individually, as well as collectively.

Awareness to your individual past patterning, as well as your soul’s current destiny, is one of the many gifts Astrology offers. When you feel stuck and not able to create movement in your life, you have likely become too comfortable with the security of past familiarity. Therefore, discomfort will become more intense in order to instigate movement into a new way of interacting in life. During important Eclipse periods such as this one, the universe is encouraging us to awaken to our individual and collective destinies.

The theme for this final eclipse of the season is one of communication; with a special emphasis on truth versus belief. Along with Jupiter–the ruling planet of this eclipse–Venus, Mercury and the Sun are all transiting in the sign of Gemini. This stellium of Gemini planets is creating an intense emphasizes on thinking and communicating with mindfulness. Lastly, the planet Neptune is making a challenging aspect to this eclipse and stressing the need to heal what is keeping us from our true nature.

Following are a few questions you may want to ponder during this eclipse:

What are your individual beliefs at this moment in time?
What stories have you created or fabricated about your reality?
Are your thoughts and communication reflecting your individual destiny—your personal truth?

If yes, wonderful! If not, this eclipse is an opportunity to acknowledge that which no longer serves you so you can move into proper alignment with your innate wisdom—truth consciousness!

We are not here on earth to change our destiny, but to fulfill it. ~Guy Finely

The energies of an eclipse can be felt a couple of days before and after an eclipse. The ancient sages believed that eclipses were a time for meditation and learning; a special time to honor the spiritual aspects of your life. Try to keep your schedule light, remain internally focused, eat only pure foods, and do not consume alcohol. The veil between earth and the heavens is thinner during an eclipse, allowing you to more easily connect to the eternal universal wisdom that is your divine essence.

Self Love & the Taurus Solar Eclipse

Thursday, May 9, 5:28 pm PT
Nineteen Degrees – Thirty-one Minutes of Taurus
Visible primarily from Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.

“You are here to enable the Divine Purpose of the Universe to unfold. That is how important you are.”  ~Eckhart Tolle

2013 will mark the occurrence of five eclipses in one year: three lunar and two solar. The first eclipse—a partial lunar eclipse—occurred on April 25 in the sign of Scorpio. On May 9, an annular solar eclipse will occur in Taurus and the final eclipse of this noteworthy trio will occur in Sagittarius on May 24. Be sure and watch for important upcoming communication on this third eclipse and its significance as it occurs during the powerful Uranus-Pluto squares. Lastly, the final two eclipses of 2013 will occur in October and November.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon travels between the Sun and the Earth and therefore casts its shadow blocking the view of the Sun from Earth. During an annular solar eclipse (ring of fire) the Moon’s shadow blocks out part of the Sun’s light creating a ring of fiery bright sunlight that will blaze around the Moon’s circumference. In fact, “annulus” in Latin means “little ring.” This eclipse will be visible from northern Australia and the southern Pacific Ocean, and visible for a maximum of six minutes and three seconds.

Eclipses help you to create shifts in your life and encourage you to let go of old patterns that no longer serve you. They work on three levels: personal, collective and ultimately, the integration of both. Where there is inner uncertainty, an eclipse will encourage you to seek clarity and transformation. Pay close attention to the revelations occurring in your life during this powerful eclipse month.

Mars, Mercury, the Sun, Moon and Pallas Athena are all in the sign of Taurus during this solar eclipse—that’s a lot of Taurus energy! Pallas Athena’s presence is a powerful influence because she conjuncts this eclipse exactly. Archetypically, she is recognized as a hero, or warrior goddess and seeker of justice. The myths tell us that she was born from Zeus’ forehead—a depiction of her innate wisdom and ability to strategize. In general, Taurus represents the material and spiritual realms. From a material perspective it is the sign that correlates security with survival – what brings us security, or allows us to feel secure, will promote our survival. Spiritually, Taurus represents the divine and sacred mysteries. Taurus is connected to the inner side of Venus marking this an auspicious time to turn inward and focus on one’s connection with self and the divine spark within.

Venus is also the planet ruling this Taurus eclipse. Synonymous with LOVE, when associated with Taurus, Venus asks us to cultivate a loving relationship with our inner self. During this eclipse Venus is making two important planetary aspects: a conjunction to Jupiter, the expansive philosophical planet of truth consciousness and a challenging aspect to Neptune, the planetary body associated with healing. These two aspects may initiate the unveiling of outmoded belief systems that need your conscious attention and commitment to change. This is a favorable time to question your intimate relationship dynamics. What do you truly value and how do you love others based on your values? Expect this period to bring about inner revelations about how you love yourself and love others. Most importantly, if you currently believe that your security comes from external resources then now is an excellent time to contemplate and initiate new intentions for the following:

    • To appreciate beauty and the finer things in life without my desired need to possess or own.
    • To display self-worth that radiates inner security regardless of my financial status.
    • To honor and nurture my individual gifts and values.
    • To love myself unconditionally.

“Scarcity of self value cannot be remedied by money, recognition, affection, attention or influence.” ~Gary Zukav

The energies of an eclipse can be felt a couple of days before and after an eclipse. The ancient sages believed that eclipses were a time for meditation and learning; a special time to honor the spiritual aspects of your life. Try to keep your schedule light, remain internally focused, eat only pure foods, and do not consume alcohol.

Transformation & the Scorpio Lunar Eclipse

April 25, 2013 12:57 p.m. PDT
05 degrees and 25 minutes

“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” ~ Carl Jung

The first eclipse of this year will be visible in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, and will last just under 27 minutes in the sign of Scorpio.

This eclipse is destined to bring about deep emotional transformation as it shines its ever revealing light into the deep recesses of your unconscious. This will be true for each of us, but especially for those who have Taurus or Scorpio planets in their horoscope because these are the two zodiac signs in which the eclipses are highlighting. A lunar eclipse will shine a probing light into your emotional psyche and will maintain its influence in your life for as long as it takes for you to resolve the emotional dynamics that it exposed.

Scorpio is feminine in nature and symbolizes the element of water. Its spiritual essence is symbolized by the divine shakti—energy and power—which is recognized as the many faces of the divine feminine. In the Hindu tradition the divine shakti is known as the divine mother, the universal creator, destroyer of evil and sustainer of all life. Her many faces are acknowledged as Kali, Durga, and the only female companion of Lord Shiva—Parvati. The divine union of Shiva and Parvati is symbolic of the powerful merger of equality between the sacred feminine and masculine.

Just as Eclipses create a temporary shadow, you too, may find yourself uncovering previously Scorpionic buried emotions that need to be acknowledged and honored. During this eclipse it is important to embrace the mysteries of death and rebirth; personal power themes, security, possessions, other people’s money, passion, sexuality and deep internal transformations.

If you are finding yourself immersed in an underworld of
internal struggles, or just needing to transform an important
area of your life, this lunar eclipse is the time to seek
assistance in making the changes you desire.

Astrologers have studied eclipses and their effects since the Babylonian era and have found that they often coincide with earth changes, political upheavals and modern stock market fluctuations. With the advent of external events, eclipses can become powerful indicators of needed change in our personal lives.

The energies of an Eclipse can be felt a few days before and after an occurrence and the ancient sages believed eclipses were a time for meditation and learning; a special time to honor the spiritual aspects of your life. Try to keep your schedule light, remain internally focused, eat only pure foods, and do not consume alcohol. The veil between Earth and the heavens is thinner during an eclipse, allowing you to more easily connect to the eternal universal wisdom that is your divine essence.
