Living Your Sun Sign—Astrological Predictions for March 2012

Friday, March 2nd, 2012
Share Button

It will be easy this month to get impatient with your ability to manifest your ideas into the world or even just to make up your mind about what vision is worthwhile for you to pursue. Mars as well as Saturn are on their retrograde journey and invite you into a more internally focused posture.

If you have some planets in Virgo, Pisces,Sagittarius or Gemini you will find yourself especially slowed down and your seeds for active integration just need more time to germinate. Also Mercury will be retrograde for a month starting March 12 and with that you will have to face the usual obstacles in relation with communication, electrical devices, travels and delayed reactions.

Sun, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces will add another piece to the puzzle. Overall I would suggest to pay attention to your own inner guidance through journaling, dreams and coincidences. What are your deep inner dreams and ideals you want to achieve in your near future of the next year? Feel inspired, dream and make plans.
And then with the New Moon in Aries in the later part of this month you will get lots of extra juice for new projects and ideas. Some of them might be wild and out of the ordinary from your usual way of acting in the world. It’s a good time to ask yourself some questions: What is your true vision in life? Who do you want to be in ten, twenty years down the road? Can you gather the courage to take the necessary steps to be able to fulfill your inner dream? Tune in to your message from the stars…

Aries (March 21 to April 20)
Mars retrograde wants you to use your passion and powers to protect and serve the advancement of the human spirit. Find your sacred work, your right livelihood and learn to embody the talents and skills you have, as your gift to others.

Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
Every manifestation starts with an idea, a thought or a dream. You are still guided to manifest successfully on the material realm where you have a kind of “Midas” golden touch right now. Don’t underestimate your own abilities. Think big!

Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
You want to find your own tribe, like-minded friends you can talk and have fun with. In a lively discussion you can learn and appreciate new ways of doing things. If you don’t have to be right you can be inspired by a different perspective.

Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
You can discover your warrior spirit and know beyond doubt that you are able to defend yourself and take a stand if necessary. There is a thrust to contribute your efforts to your community and step into your personal power.

Leo (July 23 to Aug 22)
Adventures are beckoning you towards the horizon. Your inner gypsy wants to travel beyond limitations and garner new, fun experiences. Maybe a new position or a more meaningful occupation is on your list of adventures…

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22)
You will have to confront your inner monkey and the way you tend to be overly inclined to criticize yourself and others. Being truthful and honest does not always mean to be right in dumping your perception onto yourself and your fellow beings. Be aware!

Libra (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
Communication, communication, communication is on your menu. Being able to express your own needs and find a satisfying, mutual compromise is your goal in your committed relationship.

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22)
Cleaning up your workspace this month by dealing with unfinished projects will clean your slate for new beginnings next month. You might also have a look at your diet and self-care, in order to stay healthy and vibrant with life energy.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 20)
It is a good time to venture out and play more, having fun in your life. Maybe you meet attractive new friends with whom to enjoy and share your passion. You could get pregnant this month.

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)
Your status and position in your professional life is important to you but it needs to be balanced with the appreciation of your inner life, your emotional well-being. You might have to make adjustments or changes in your home and living quarters.

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
By being your own wild, colorful version of your highest potential as a free agent, you can become a role model for others to be more courageous and outspoken. Finding your own inner voice and ways to speak your truth will be rewarding.

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Discover your compassionate wisdom and your calling to be a loving and mystical guide into higher dimensions of consciousness. Or you could contribute a higher frequency to life as an inspiring artist, channeling uplifting beauty.

Living Your Sun Sign—Astrological Predictions for February 2012

Monday, January 30th, 2012
Share Button

The New Moon in Aquarius unfolding  into February invites you into more changes and breakthroughs. A revolutionary spirit and new ideas are in the air but with Mars retrograde you are asked to reconsider your plans of action carefully to successfully accomplish future goals. Everything is slowing down. Make sure you defend your turf and territory and stand up for what is important to you. High frequency Mars actions are symbolized by the warrior of the heart, the one who fights for what is worth fighting for in attunement with the heart.A high Mars we also manifest  in finding the courage to face our fears and limitations and act accordingly.

In astrology the key which is given to you is a higher perspective and consciousness of your given situation. A higher perspective can give you better choices and the achievement of your goals and more ease and joy in riding the wave of your life.These days we all are facing tremendous challenges with Pluto, Uranus and Neptune on a collective level as well as a personal level.

In an astrological reading we can see how the individual is touched by the transits of Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune. These planets are the culprits, symbolizing the profound changes happening at this crucial time on this planet. Knowing what is going on for you personally, looking at it from a higher perspective, will help you to better adjust and consciously choose better ways to deal with the situation. Depending on which planet is impacting you the most will determine whether the highest frequency of your contribution is that of a rebellious spirit, an accomplished organizer, a spiritual guide or teacher.

Also Neptune will be floating into its own sign Pisces on February 4 and will stay there for the next 14 years. This is very powerful and offers hope for the rising of consciousness worldwide and acting more and more from a place of oneness and connectedness. Unconditional love and compassion are the most beautiful flowers of Piscean consciousness. Where transiting Neptune is located in your personal chart you will be asked to learn, adapt and contribute your own little piece of consciousness.

Tune in to your message from the stars…

Aries (March 21 to April 20)
Your restless spirit will spark you into long term plans for new adventures and projects; cooperation with other like-minded souls will be the vehicle to make your dreams come true. Take plenty of time to think things through, because till April there will be obstacles.

Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
You want to focus more on opportunities than on resources. Your inner growth, feeling good about yourself and your level of skills will be the determining factors for your success in the material world and recognition of what you have to offer.

Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
You can find a higher perspective through contemplation, by putting all the bits and pieces of your knowledge into a concise picture. Problems are always solved on a Meta level, not on the level of the problems. Allowing a higher state of consciousness will do the trick.

Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
True comfort and trust with another human being has to grow with time and experience. Keep your vision for true intimacy alive, which is based in friendship. Respect for each other’s individuality will guide you.

Leo (July 23 to Aug 22)
A new beginning is on the brink for you in your relationships and with friends. You can shine, sparkle and be reflected by your partner if you give the same back. Acknowledging each other positively will enhance those qualities greatly.

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22)
You can take on a new perspective for yourself, your skills and how you contribute to the world. You will be guided from you own soul towards a new horizon with a totally new landscape.

Libra (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
You will meet new friends and like-minded souls. Sharing your creativity, your sense of beauty and caring for others will bring joy and excitement. It is not too late to plan and set your intentions for the year.

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22)
It is a good time to enjoy your bonds with your close friends and family; or even to extend your sense of family to one of those many abandoned animals on the island. Call the Humane Society or the 9th Life. Love and care is in the air!

Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 20)
Your information and communication skills can be expanded; and you can learn more deeply and directly right now by trusting your own five senses and your own experience.

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)
Consolidation and self-discipline is easy for you. This month you are asked to find new ways of using your resources and skills and to feel good about who you are and what you have to contribute.

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
You are the initiator with the vision and dreams of what is on the horizon for us… individuality and freedom, breakthrough in the cutting edge of science and equality, not just for the few one percent…

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Meditation and retreat is a good way for you to replenish your energies and connect with your divine guidance. With Neptune entering your sign, you are called to hold the frequency of higher consciousness, spiritual guidance and compassion for us all.

Living Your Sun Sign—Astrological Predictions for January 2012

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

In January, Sun and Pluto will be in conjunction and setting a more radical tone for what needs to change in our political and economic structures. The Occupy Movement around the country has the potential to spark a deep transformation of society. And, as Marianne Williamson says: “We have to keep it smart, non-violent and growing…”

Tune in to your personal message from the stars …                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Aries (March 21 to April 20)
It is your time to be a shining light for your community. Stepping up, taking responsibility and being accountable for your words, followed by action, is your way to success. You have more to offer than you think!

Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
You are still the lucky one with Jupiter in your sign. If you want to take advantage and reap the harvest fully, you need to look for growth and a higher perspective in your life. Learning and deepening your education is helpful!

Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
You need to slow down and express your inner truth more honestly with your loved ones. Listening to others, really listening from an open heart space, is on the itinerary for you. You will be rewarded with a deepened intimacy in your relationships.

Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
This might be a great time for you to take your intimate relationship to another level of commitment or to move on. Ask yourself the question: Is this really the way I want my relationship to be?

Leo (July 23 to Aug 22)
This month your focal point is moving your attention away from your own self. You need to take on opportunities to serve others and add value to other people’s lives. This will be deeply satisfying and meaningful!

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22)
Let go of your self- imposed critic and focus on your self-expression without thinking much about it. Find some creative projects and try your fingers in some new pies…You will be able to shine and receive applause for your contributions!

Libra (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
It is time for honest self-evaluation in the area of home and family. Have you been able to create the committed and bonded home situation you are longing for? What would it take for you to feel truly loved and appreciated?

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22)
You are asked to feel comfortable learning to be more outgoing and to communicate with ease. Your written and spoken word can find a higher and more skillful way to express your thoughts and feelings.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 20)
You are invited to reach a new level of feeling good about yourself by sharing and contributing from your wide array of skills in your repertoire. Also your physical body wants to be celebrated and taken care for.

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)
Your ideas about change and transformation need to be put into action. You have the qualities of a spokesperson, leader and pioneer in the Grand Scheme of things. You are an advocate for the less fortunate.

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
To truly find your voice and vision you need to take some time off. A retreat on your own with time to meditate and smell the roses will be a reconnection with what is your true nature. You will feel enriched and inspired!

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Your contribution is to be the voice of reason, of unconditional love and the light of the divine shining through your words and actions. Meeting new people, who can become your friends and meaningful connections in service of a higher cause, will bring joy to your heart!

Living Your Sun Sign—Astrological Predictions for December 2011

Thursday, December 1st, 2011
Share Button

Most of December the Sun and Mercury will be in Sagittarius and they will raise questions about the objectivity of your belief systems and ideologies. The simplest answer should be that whatever works for the greater good for the many, is a path worth walking. Sagittarian optimism and gracious openness for adventure and higher perspectives will guide you. Mercury retrograde is as usual straining our patience with hang-ups in communications and electronic devices, but it will go direct Dec 13. Tune in to your message from the stars and your role:

Aries (March 21 to April 20)

Adventure or meaningful pilgrimage is on your menu. Or you could decide to sign up for some classes at MCC and deepen your education. How about that computer class you have wanted to do for a while now?

Taurus (April 21 to May 21)

Playing the lottery could be successful for you this coming year, believe it or not. After all, you have to make yourself available for the abundance the universe has to offer to you. Ask yourself the question: Where have you underestimated yourself?

Gemini (May 22 to June 21)

You are good with communication to begin with but now you really want to go to another level with your loved ones and friends. You can have deeply meaningful conversations with people close to you or even with new friends to be.

Cancer (June 22 to July 22)

You need to take a deeper look at how you are earning your living. How satisfying is the work you are doing? How can you be of service for more people and truly make a difference? Express your opinions… no holding back for you!

Leo (July 23 to Aug 22)

Wow! You have so much energy, so many projects, ideas and fiery passion going on this month, it might be just exhausting to watch you rip through them. Make sure to eat well and get some sleep. Center stage for you and huge successes!

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22)

You probably will do some traveling to see family or loved ones for Christmas. Expect fun and high energy! Be expressive with your true feelings and share your love freely.

Libra (Sept 23 to Oct 22)

Honest communication is on for you but you might expect some misunderstandings till Mercury goes direct again in the middle of December. It is important for you to make a stand with your opinion and inner truth no matter what. Trust yourself!

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22)

Money, money, money… is happening for you and opportunities are shaping up. Jupiter opposing your sign could be beneficial for fortunes and good luck if you find ways to channel the energy. Learn more about the art of investments… gold, silver, oil… all the riches from the inner earth.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 20)

You are a happy camper in your own element. No holding back! You will have to sharpen your decision making skills and take some risks outside your usual comfort zone. Play big!

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)

You need some time on your own with the space for solitude and meditation. A meditation retreat would be wonderful to re-evaluate and make new plans for the next year. But be careful not to isolate yourself into loneliness. Balance is your ticket!

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

Revolutionary ideas will help ready yourself for a quantum leap into a new level of consciousness. Finding new like-minded friends will be helpful and inspiring. Expect more of the unexpected right now. You are in for a wild ride!

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Your mission this month is to be heard and seen in a more public role, maybe as a speaker or somebody with a message. You could start to feel more comfortable with speaking through checking out Toastmasters and you can even learn to enjoy being the center of attention.

Living Your Sun Sign—Astrological Predictions for November 2011

Monday, November 7th, 2011
Share Button

If you haven’t had the chance to come to my astrological forecast for November and New Moon presentation you now can watch me on YouTube…oh my God…
This is the first time I have been seeing myself on Video and I am so not used to myself that way…

But I am sure you will enjoy the talk which I broke up into two parts A and B. Go to YouTube and tell me what you think!

The question as always is:
What fruits do you want the next month to bear for you? How can you align yourself with the cosmic forces for more harmony, balance and joy in your life? How can you ride the wave successfully? We will look at the sign of the New Moon in relation to your personal Sun sign which will give you insight and a higher perspective onto what is happening in the stars and your emotional responses.

Throughout most of November we will have 4 planets in Scorpio. That will raise the stakes to a “no nonsense” kind of attitude and it will show on the streets. Scorpio is intense, interested in the raw truth; revealing shadows and dark secrets. I would assume that we are not done with protests. We are just at the beginning of a massive uprising of people “who just have had it!” Grass root movements and the public pressure for real changes are getting stronger. Tune in to your message from the stars and your role:

Aries (March 21 to April 20)
You feel impatient and easily triggered into reaction or action. There is a revolutionary spirit in you waiting to break free. Make sure to find appropriate ways to express your energies and be cautious of acting out.

Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
There is some work to be done in your relationships. Be truthful about your inner needs for safety, reliability, and loyalty. Allow your partner to see you more completely and naked; invite a new dimension of honesty into your relationships.

Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
You need to take particular care for your well-being and health this month. Self-care with the emphasis on discovering new and transformative ways should be in the foreground. This is a good time for a series of colon cleanses and adjustments in your diet.

Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
It is all about the right relationship with love, pleasure and fun. Finding your true self-expression will have a lot to do with your willingness to take a risk and step out of your protective cocoon and connect with others.

Leo (July 23 to Aug 22)
Who is allowed access to your castle – your inner world? And how deep and how far can you let that happen? Transformation and renewal of your bonds with your family and loved ones can happen after you take an honest look at the situation.

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22)
Be careful not to be carried away by self-criticism and negativity. There is a difference between honest self-inquiry or indulging into a negative attitude towards yourself and towards the world.

Libra (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
Your longing for love and harmony needs to be tempered by the ability to discriminate and choose the right partner for you. What do you need to feel good about yourself? Find your own strength and resources first.

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22)
You will find the Scorpion intensity this month utterly familiar. You have the ability to help others through your guidance and experience in those choppy waters. You are asked to step into your leadership capabilities and discover your personal power more deeply.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 20)
The inner and the outer journey need to align for you right now. A pilgrimage or a night in the Haleakala Crater will guide you towards a new and bigger vision for your life. Meditation and contemplation are useful tools for you.

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)
You are learning so much about yourself these days with Pluto in your sign. This month’s lesson is to find like minded souls, your tribe and learn to share your responsibilities. Open yourself for new friends and companions on your journey of deep inner transformation.

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
Your innovative spirit needs to show up for a worthwhile mission. You are a role model and rebel because you are carrying the archetype of revolution and freedom of conventions. Take your place in your community and share your zany perspective.

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Chiron, the wounded healer has entered your sign and invites you to do some deep inner work and healing in areas which have been deeply unconscious till now. You will come to understand some deep inner dimensions of your psyche for the next step in your evolution.

Shakti Carola Navran is an evolutionary astrologer, jeweler, and published author: “I have been giving astrological readings professionally for 33 years now and I love to do this work.

An Astrological Forecast for October 2011 With a Look into Scorpio Astrology

Monday, October 3rd, 2011
Share Button

Fear is in the air! The stock market is melting down again and there is growing unrest in this country which is played down by the media. We have demonstrations on Wall Street and a revolution is brewing. We are all connected and we all have at least friends and family who have fallen on hard times, lost their houses or their jobs. We feel strongly what is happening because of that deeper inner connection of oneness or you could call it the morphogenetic field. It is easy to get caught up in anxiety and fear.

The question is how can we balance ourselves? How can we find our place in all this? How can we step up with courage into the unknown and the new horizon of consciousness? And how can we be of help for each other? Astrology is holding some answers for you because it gives you the conscious awareness for higher or lower choices based on the energetic, archetypal fields involved.

Pluto, Uranus and Neptune

Wherever the big players are in your chart; Pluto in Capricorn squaring Uranus in Aries and Neptune in Pisces, you are called to active integration and contribution to the whole. Lately I have been looking almost exclusively at charts for people who have been part of that “call for evolution”. We are living in exciting times. I believe we all have signed up to be part of this enormous revolution of consciousness.

But then some of us play a very active role in this process as leaders, healers or teachers. Depending on how Pluto, Uranus and Neptune touch your planets and houses it shows you where your expertise and soul commitment resides. It shows you how you personally can ride this enormous wave of tremendous changes breaking.

Mayan Calendar and New Moon

This month coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar Oct 11- 26 which is thought of as the emergence of a dimensional shift into higher consciousness. It is the completion of one cycle and the beginning of another. The Full Moon in Aries coincides with that final phase emphasizing the new beginning and sheds light and asks for emotional courage.

Libra Planets

We are relational beings! Families, relationships and social structures make us into who we take ourselves to be. We feel reflected, inspired, educated, loved or rejected by others. The sign of Libra indicates the whole mystery of close, intimate relationships as well as friends or meeting the “other” in general. With Libra we learn about love, harmony, peace and discrimination of our true needs and desires.

Earlier in October with 4 planets in Libra we will learn about compromise and balance in relationships which will be deepened with the Saturn Sun conjunction in Libra. Saturn brings to the fore issues of integrity, accountability, what works and the ability to set healthy boundaries.

The New Moon in Libra Sept 27, three days apart from the Equinox, started our journey into deeper wisdom and willingness to consider and attune to the others.

Five Planets in Scorpio Coming Up

The last week of this month we will have five planets in Scorpio, which will be dominating the heavens and our inner experience. There is the sense of urgency and time is running out. The New Moon in Scorpio makes us emotionally moody, intense and focused inwards. The Jupiter opposition and the trine to Neptune are adding another layer to the situation. Jupiter always wants to look at the big picture and Neptune can contribute higher awareness as well as misguidance, lies and betrayal.

Scorpios are known for being very intense, emotional, willing to go deep for the truth and maybe uncomfortably honest about it. Looking at the hidden structures, the deep inner psychology of the moment Scorpios are good at unraveling dark secrets.

With five planets in Scorpio we will have to look at uncomfortable truth and the strategies of misinformation and lies in the media might blow wide open. There will be more intensity on the streets with Mars still in fiery Leo till November 11.

What is pressing on all of us is the meltdown of our economy, the abuse through politicians, banks and corporate world dynamics for profit and greed.

How come that the people who caused the last meltdown in 2008 were the ones getting bonuses from the money we had to buy them out with? You really wonder how long that strategy will work for them.

With so much Scorpio energy this might be a month of facing the truth, gaining real insight into what needs to be done and acted upon. For real transformation and change to happen facing the truth of the moment is the first step.

Highlights of the Month and their Highest Possibilities

Mars squares Jupiter Oct 2
The energy is there to deal with financial matters and be successful with it.

Venus steps into Scorpio Oct 9
Deeper truth might be revealed in your relationships.

Full Moon in Aries Oct 11
Emotions are running high and in warrior mode. Courage and right action should be guiding you.

Mercury in Scorpio Oct 13
The ability to find a new vision based in ruthless examination of the facts.

Sun conjunction with Saturn Oct 13
Clarity, commitment or separation in relationships might happen.

Venus opposition to Jupiter Oct 14
Opportunities around your finances and resources are arising.

Mercury opposition Jupiter Oct 17
Study and learn to enhance your ability to process details into the bigger picture.

Sun into Scorpio Oct 23
Act on revelations and insights to help integrate the new.

New Moon in Scorpio Oct 26
Be truthful to yourself first!

Jupiter trine to Pluto Oct 28
We all agree on the fact that we need change in our society and transformation is needed desperately. The key factor is our consciousness and the decisions and choices we make.

Venus square Neptune Oct 31
Sensitivity for others, compassion and willingness to help is a possibility.

Remember astrology can be of tremendous help in navigating the rocky waters. Expand your knowledge, study astrology and get the support and insight of your personal situation with a professional astrologer of your choice. Your chart reveals the “itinerary of your soul” and the evolutionary intentions you have brought with you this life time. It can give deep meaning in times of choppy waters and help you to navigate the currents.

Aloha and many blessings, Shakti.

An Astrological Forecast for September 2011 With the Autumnal Equinox Marked by the Sun Entering the Sign of Libra

Thursday, September 1st, 2011
Share Button

In a time of economical upheaval and transitions into the unknown it always has been internally balancing for me to perceive myself in a universe operating under meaningful laws and principles. Astrology is an ancient method to gain knowledge and deeper insight about the cycles of the planets bringing change and touch our lives.

Western astrology is based on the unfolding of the seasons and the sign of Aries, the beginning of the zodiac is aligned with the beginning of spring, the Spring Equinox. Our human survival on this planet is tightly correlating with the different seasons spring, summer, autumn and winter.

Our life is lived in harmony with the rhythms we find ourselves part of. There is the small rhythm of the day turning into night or the journey of the Moon through one complete circle in approximately 28.5 days or the bigger rhythm of the earth around the Sun in one year. The Sun is thought as moving through the 12 different astrological signs and therefore representing specific subjects to deal with and potentials to use.

The four cardinal points beginning with Aries starting spring, Cancer continuing with summer, Libra starting autumn and Capricorn moving into winter are signifying important points of profound change in the energetic flow we receive from the sun.

A Special Autumnal Equinox With a New Moon and 5 Planets in Libra

Just now the length of the day equals the length of the night in the Western Hemisphere. The summer is over even if we might still have warm sunny days and long light filled evenings. It is a time of harvest and reaping the results of our labor and efforts. It is a time to celebrate our bounty with harvest celebrations (Thanksgiving) and gratefulness in our hearts.

When the Sun enters Libra this month with a New Moon; Venus and Mercury will be following suit at some point. Libra is symbolizing the glyph of the Scales and with it the striving for balance, harmony, justice, love, peace and relationships. With Saturn already in Libra we have 5 planets in this balance oriented sign this month and there is some work to do to reach the high aspirations of this sign.

But what is so special about this Equinox is the activation of this sensitive cardinal point through Pluto and Uranus and with it the cosmic imperative for evolution intensifies. The unfolding of the New Moon starting from here promises a turbulent month and autumn.

It is also the fourth out of six Super Moons this year. A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is closest to the Earth amplifying the gravitational pull on the earth and on our psyches. It influences the magnetic field of the earth and definitely affects the individual.

New Moon Square to Pluto and Opposition Uranus

The conjunction of Sun Moon Mercury will be squared by Pluto and opposed by Uranus and will be pressuring us to think differently and take action. Pluto and Uranus will be felt very closely and intimately through the involvement of the New Moon. The longing for harmony and balance in private affairs is confronted with harsh realities and we need courage to confront our fears and insecurities, real shifts need to occur.

Pluto in Capricorn Square to Uranus in Aries

These are the big guys giving us all such a hard time lately! Uranus, the god of lightning, revolution, sudden changes and earth quakes is fighting (squaring) with Pluto, the god of hell and the underworld, death and transformation. This is big! You only need to watch the news and you can see the signs.

To give you an idea of the powerful energies Pluto and Uranus are representing you only have to remember that January 2008 Pluto stepped first time into Capricorn and with it the unraveling of the economy started to become obvious to the public.

Pluto Entered Capricorn

With Pluto’s third pass over the threshold into Capricorn it became painfully clear that things were not the way we like them. Since then the global economy is in a meltdown touching on myriads of layers in our personal lives. It has become almost official that investing in gold might be a good thing to hedge your savings against the inflation and collapse all around you.

Uranus Entered Aries

Uranus entered Aries on March 13. 2011 and on that day the big earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan and shook the world awake to the fact that nuclear reactors are not safe and controllable.

Both planets entering new signs and squaring each other 7 times in the next 4 years will turn our world as we know it upside down. I do believe it is a good thing in the bigger picture of human evolution. I think many of us agree that change is needed indeed. Transformation is on its way globally and personally and we don’t have much of a choice about it.

The choice we do have is to become as conscious as possible and contribute our little bit of love and higher perspective to the cauldron of change. I have been giving many readings lately with prominent Pluto and Uranus transit action in natal charts. Bringing the light of understanding helps to integrate and find higher roads and deeper meaning to upheaval and stress. We are the people who signed up to help those monumental changes along and contribute through our own inner growth and solid actions.

Pluto in Capricorn will eventually lead to a more sustainable and ethical economy based on the needs of many versus the greed of a few. Uranus in Aries impels us to face injustice with rebellion and develop innovative strategies for change. We are at the dawn of a new millennium it will just take some time for it to manifest fully into a bright day.

Highlights of the month:

  • Mercury steps into Virgo Sept 9
  • Full Moon in Pisces Sept 12
  • Venus dances into Libra Sept 15
  • Venus conjunction with Saturn Sept 29
  • Pluto turns direct Sept 16
  • Mars marches into Leo Sept 19
  • Sun moves into Libra Sept 23 and marks the Autumnal Equinox
  • Mercury enters Libra Sept 25 conjoins Sun and Moon
  • New Moon in Libra Sept 27

This month I have been focusing more on the bigger picture and devoted time and space to Pluto and Uranus. I will be sending out later this month an update about the New Moon and Full Moon.

I wish you a fruitful journey and grateful heart, aloha Shakti.

Astrological Forecast for August 2011 With Mercury Retrograde & Neptune Backing Into Aquarius

Monday, August 1st, 2011
Share Button

How many thoughts have you been spending lately on things which are really essential for your soul and your happiness? Are you taking time out of your busy life to contemplate or just sit in your garden, in the park and smell the roses? How overwhelmed and caught up do you feel in things which need to get done like answering your emails or tending to the endless list of tasks? Working your way through life by checking off your to do lists is not only ineffective but also highly dis-satisfying.

Tony Robbins talks about the “Zone” where we get truly creative with solution oriented thinking and where we create the future of our dreams. The “Zone” as I understand it is that inner space of presence we are visiting when we slow down our monkey mind. It is that inner connection to the divine spirit, eternal wisdom and endless possibilities of creation you partake in when you meditate or find other ways to slow down your thinking.

When we are in the “Zone” we feel relaxed and balanced and this is reflected in the brain. While the left brain is attributed to the rational and logical thought, the right brain is thought of as the seat of a more holistic, creative perception of life. Most of us are unbalanced in the hemispheres and as a result tend to perceive the world through an innate duality. As a result we experience ourselves as stressed, separate from others and often struggling and in opposition with the world.

When we meditate both hemispheres are more connected and we will feel more emotional balanced, love, happiness, creativity and secure in life. Now you are probably wondering what the left or right brain has to do with this month astrological overview?

The answer is that I believe that August is a good time for you to go more inwards with Mercury retrograde and use it for your advantage. There is a right time for everything in life. But to know “when is the right timing for what” you find an excellent tool with astrology because it sheds light onto the time quality of any given moment. The time quality of any moment can be seen as a seedling ready to burst out of his shell and grow into some form of manifestation. If the seed is that of a tomato plant you will get a tomato and you wouldn’t expect it to turn out as an avocado tree, right?

This month highlights are:

•    Mercury retrograde August 2 till August 26
•    Mars enters Cancer August 3
•    Neptune backs into Aquarius August 4
•    Mars square to Uranus and opposition with Pluto August 9
•    Full Moon in Aquarius August 13
•    Sun Venus Mercury in Leo conjunction August 16
•    Mars square to Saturn August 25
•    New Moon in Virgo August 28-29
•    Jupiter retrograde into Taurus August 30

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo

Many people focus on the negative aspects of retrograde Mercury with misunderstandings in communications, missed airplanes and trouble with their electrical equipments and computers. Everything in the area of connection through mail, email and words seems to take more effort than usual to happen.

As an alternative to struggling you could shift your focus more inwards and use this month to take steps to put your life into order in areas of your health, your finances and your self-organization. It is a good time with Mercury in Virgo to sift through the details of your life. You might want to make a budget and see where your expenses really are and how they relate to your income. You could put your desk and office into order and establish a new system of order.

You could clean up that garage or make a pass through your house. In Feng Shui cluttered homes are not thought as supportive for your energetic flow in general. How can you expect clarity in your thinking or inner balance if you have all these energetically dead areas with stuff never looked at or used sitting around in your home?

But most of all it is so satisfying to rip the piles out of your closet and sift through the accumulated clutter. I have already started on my book closet which has 5 deep, heavily piled shelves with books with no space for anything more. I love my books and they have a tendency to pile up. I hope it will get better down the road since I own a KINDLE now. I am already done with 2 shelves and have started to give away books to my friends and in the end the rest will go to the library.

You could put your thoughts in order by processing them by picking up the practice of writing regularly in a journal. You will be surprised how much more clarity about who you are, what you want and how you get there will arise. There is a wonderful book out from Julia Cameron called “The Right to Write” which is very inspiring to really take that time for yourself and contemplate.

Get into your “Zone”!

Neptune Backs into Aquarius August 4

Neptune will be in Aquarius one last time before he floats into Pisces for good in February 3, 2012. Neptune in Aquarius is concluding his journey through the sign and with it our perspective on religion has changed. There is a certain dryness and dissatisfaction many people are feeling with the organized religions which prepares us for a more direct inner connection with the divine with Neptune moving into Pisces.

Throughout history when Neptune was in Pisces there was a spiritual renaissance and new religions like Christianity spreading like a wild fire through the East or Buddhism reaching China from India.

We will be offered the gift of compassion and a sense of oneness which will help with the rough journey we are on right now. Turning to each other for support, advice, help and love is a smart way to deal with lives challenges.

Mars Square to Uranus and Opposition with Pluto August 9

That is a pretty explosive combination with Mars the warrior battling Uranus the God of lightening, the unexpected and revolution as well as Pluto the God of hell and the underworld. More earth quakes, tension and sudden explosions of violence in the political problem zones like the Middle East might be a result.

The question you may ask yourself is how do you deal with your own anger and righteousness? Deep unconscious emotions might surface with Mars in Cancer. Put on your seat belt.

Full Moon in Aquarius August 13

The Full Moon shines her light onto your long term visions and how you feel about them. The Moon in Aquarius tends to give you some distance to your emotions and therefore some choice how you want to deal with them.

Remember that your feelings are the most crucial part in determining where you are on your journey to the fulfillment of your dreams and desires. If you feel good and uplifted things just fall in place for you and the universe responds to your spoken and unspoken desires with coincidences and lucky chances.

Sun Venus Mercury Conjunction in Leo August 16

This is in opposition to the Full Moon and here you have juicy, creative, buzzing and expressive energy running through your circuits. A river of fullness, love and abundance and with it the ability to see the glass half full with squeezed lemon juice is available to you if you let go and let the current take you.

Mars Square to Saturn August 25

Saturn is trying to control and contain the Mars warrior energy. We have to see how successful that will be.

New Moon in Virgo August 28-29

We will start another round of the Moon with her lunar cycle through the zodiac. The sign of the New Moon sets the tone for the evolution of our inner journey we do emotionally throughout the month. You might start out to feel very sober and rational with the pragmatic realism of Virgo. Virgo is the sign most concerned with efficiency, analysis and the details of life. Virgos aspire to serve, be useful and impeccable in their demeanor. Moving through the month you have the chance to feel more self-esteem and self-value and hopefully less self-critical. This New Moon will trine with Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Taurus which helps to pinpoint what no longer works and how you can make changes.

Again it is a good time to sit with your journal and do some creative re-visioning and redesigning in the areas of your health, your finances and how you can contribute with your particular set of skills to the world. What are you good at? How can you be a force for good in life? Where are your love and your passion?

Jupiter Retrograde into Taurus August 30

If you have not done your budget yet now is the time to curb your spending without awareness. If you have an overview over your expenses and you know where the money goes you have choices to decide what is really important for you and where you might want to be more conservatively spending.

However these transiting planets fit into your personal horoscope they will activate specific areas and your experience of your life. You might want to get some expert helping you to make more sense out of it.

Astrology should always have the goal to enhance your awareness, empower you and give you better choices for your life. You are moving into the “Zone” and with a higher perspective onto your problems and challenges you can turn your attention to the higher potential and move more gently along with your soul’s purpose. It will enrich you with a stronger self-expression of your talents and potentials and that will give you satisfaction and joy.

I wish you a wonderful month, aloha and many blessings Shakti.

Living Your Sun Sign—Astrological Predictions for August 2011

Friday, July 29th, 2011
Share Button

Mercury the communicator is in retrograde most of the month, indicating that attention to details is needed to avoid misunderstandings, delays, and breakdowns of many kinds. Patience, self-discipline, and revisiting old creative ideas are good ways to get ready for transforming material failure into success beginning at the end of August. The New Moon in Virgo promises changes and growth in practical matters. Tune in to your message from the stars:

Aries (March 21 to April 20)
You will feel more introverted than usual but simultaneously full of new ideas and creative energy. Your glass is not only full but overflowing. Write down the multitude of visions and dreams that you might come up with and take some first action steps toward implementing some of them.

Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
You will be offered opportunities you have been waiting for. Jupiter is your charming hero in financial decisions and health improvement. Ask yourself the question, “Where have I not been growing and expressing myself fully?”

Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
Communication and connections are crucial to our success in life and you are an expert in both. You are overflowing with creative ideas and projects to do this month. Speak, write, and share your inner riches whenever possible. Get your energy moving!

Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
Chances are good for extra income this month. You might feel guided to be more extroverted and outside your comfort zone. Dare to do what you love and the rewards will follow!

Leo (July 23 to Aug 22)
This is your time! Venture into the unknown! Pick up your brush and paint the empty canvas of your future with bold strokes, creating the picture of your heart’s desire. Remember: you are the eyes and the hands of the divine spirit dwelling in all of us.

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22)
A more inward view and focus on how you organize yourself in general will help you get through a month of confusion and hurdles. You could look into revising systems like your budgeting and accounting to get through the retrograde period of your ruler, Mercury.

Libra (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
Your relationships still need extra attention. How autonomous are you in your intimate relationship, and what are your soul’s desires? If you don’t express your need for independence and freedom to feel yourself as an individual, don’t worry— your partner will do it for you.

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22)
It is time to step up and out of the shadow you have been hiding in. Taking on more responsibilities will result in public recognition and success. You can be a good leader, with diplomacy and a loving heart in action.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 20)
Your natural buoyancy and optimism are infectious for your friends and business associates. Believe in the possibility of manifesting your dreams and you will be presented with a great opportunity.

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)
Doubt and criticism might come easily to you right now from the inner or the outer world. Embrace the potential for valuable new insights and plant the seeds for transformation beyond your wildest dreams.

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
You could be meeting important new friends or the love of your life. There is an alchemical mystery in the yin and yang dance of the cosmic forces. Be tuned in to the divine feminine and the endless unfolding of creation in always higher levels of consciousness.

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Divine mysticism from other spheres and down-to-earth practicality, both seemingly opposing aspects, need acknowledgment and space in your life.  Use quiet daily meditative time to allow spiritual guidance to manifest in your decisions and actions.

The Astrological Forecast for July 2011 With a Solar Eclipse in Cancer

Friday, July 1st, 2011
Share Button

This summer I have been traveling in Europe. Living on Maui I need to get off the island once in a while. I am so spoiled with decent weather that I have no love for cold any more which means I usually travel in the summer. But now I am ready to come home and enjoy the quiet leisure of this beautiful island in spite of the tumultuous times we are in.

Finding that inner harmony and balance is crucial to be able to make smart decisions and be a power for good in the world.

This is the third out of 3 Eclipses in a short period of time and history might be made now. This Eclipse involves Sun, Moon, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto in a dynamic Grand Cross and gives us plenty of challenges to work with. Six squares and 3 outer planets are involved and mark the deep evolutionary potential and trans-personal lessons we have to learn.

The highlights of this month are:

  • New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer July 1
  • Mercury in Leo July 2
  • Venus in Cancer July 4
  • Venus opposition Pluto July 8
  • Venus conjunction Jupiter July 8
  • Uranus retrograde July 9
  • Venus square Saturn July 13
  • Full Moon in Capricorn July 14 -15
  • Sun into Leo July 22
  • Venus into Leo July 28
  • Mercury into Virgo July 28
  • New Moon in Leo July 30

Venusian Challenges

This month we will have feminine qualities in the forefront. Venus the goddess of the arts, love and harmony is challenged and needs fine tuning. The Moon is ruling Cancer, the sign the Solar Eclipse is in. Venus and Moon, both are representing our inner feminine, different aspects of the inner woman. Both show us the way to deeper heart and soul connections and a sense of love and happiness. The sign and house position of Moon and Venus in your chart will give you a lot of information about what you are looking for in your intimate as well as more casual relationships. Both symbolize specific needs you have to consider to feel happy and joyful.

Venus in Cancer and than Leo later this month accentuates your longing for a safe haven as well as the need to being loved for who you are and the feeling of significance. The hard aspect connections with Pluto and Saturn and the conjunction with Jupiter are pouring oil into the fire of your passion. Wherever the energy is not flowing freely you will feel blockages in the form of irritation, fear of abandonment or loss, maybe you just have some vague sense of dissatisfaction and dullness. Whatever it is the more awareness and light you are able to bring to this subject the more chance for fulfillment and joy is evolving.

The Six Human Needs and Astrology

I love Tony Robbins work and just watched the CD “Back From the Edge – Creating Everlasting Love” where he works with a couple. His premises is that all our human drives and passion, what makes us decide and do things in our life is based on how we are organized around the six human needs we all share, but in a different order of importance.

The six human needs are the need for:
1.    Certainty & comfort
2.    Variety & change
3.    Significance
4.    Love & connection
5.    Growth
6.    Contribution

You can imagine that if your most important need in life is to feel certainty and security in your relationship your life will look very different from somebody who values variety and change more. We all have these six different needs but our system is organized very differently around them. Looking at your chart one will be able to tell how your blue print is organized and how you will go about the fulfillment of your needs. Your chart is the road map to a more fulfilling life and conscious decisions along the way.

The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer

During a Solar Eclipse the Moon is interrupting briefly the energy flow and radiation coming from the sun to the earth. Afterward we have the chance to reconfigure and reboot a new consciousness with many new possibilities. On a global scale we could give birth to new forms and manifestations. As individuals we could grow our own garden, partake in the ecological movement, shop green or recycle. We can get involved in our community; share our time and expertise.

On a personal level we might feel more insecure than usual with everything else going on.

The New Moon in Cancer is compounding the issue because your soul needs to feel bonded, secure and happy within your family and other relations. And if that is not the case there is some inner work to be done. Ask yourself where you are on a scale of 1 to 10 concerning your heart connection in your intimate relationship and with your circle of friends.

Relationship Counseling

I believe that it can be tremendously helpful and even life saving to use a therapist or couple counselor to have a look at your strategies and needs if you feel dissatisfied in your relationship. I have watched many of my friends get great value out of counseling in times of stress. My husband and I have done counseling when we felt stuck and unable to move forward. And we have made it through 15 years now.

What counseling does it gives you a safe space to really express your deepest truth with the guidance of a neutral and trained practitioner. It creates the space to really listen to each other and hopefully the willingness to take back your projections and a sense of self-empowerment and responsibility for your own happiness.

Full Moon in Capricorn

The Full Moon in Capricorn brings in sobriety and a more mature perspective. With that you know that your joy is in your own hands.

You can go ahead and support yourself in new ways to get the love you want. Relationship can be the source of deepest joy, happiness and spiritual growth.

Sun in Leo

With the Sun, later the Venus and New Moon in Leo there is a more carefree, expressive energy coming into your life. Things feel like getting lighter and more passion is available. Leo is a sign of fiery passions and self-expression without holding back. You want to be seen and acknowledged as somebody special and wonderful. The third human need of significance is becoming more important for you now. But to revel in admiration and to be successful with your projects and in love you need to show up and share your gifts generously.

Uranus Retrograde

The day Uranus entered Aries we had the earth quakes and the tsunami in Japan; a violent start into the fire energies of Aries. Uranus stands for sudden interruption, change and irruption. We will have Uranus going retrograde over zero degrees Aries on November 11, 2011 and than Uranus turn direct again December 10.

In my experience if a planet is passing through the first and last degree of a sign it is a very significant time. In the beginning of the sign the energy it carries is new and not well known yet. In the end of the sign we have to come to some kind of understanding and integration and are able to harvest the gifts of it.

I assume that the end of the year is holding still more unpleasant events and the possibility of more turbulent earth quakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, tornadoes and hurricanes.

Emergency Preparedness

I am a member of CERT the Civilian Emergency Response Tem on Maui because I believe in preparedness and mutual support. I believe it is very valuable for every household at least to have extra water and food for a week in case of an emergency. It is just a smart thing to do.

Nevertheless we have all resources we might need inside of us to grow and share from our inner beauty and divine soul. Listen to your inner guidance whispering into your ear and you will be in the right place at the right time.

I hope you will have a wonderful month, aloha and many blessings, Shakti.
