What's Going on?

In honor of our last unofficial weekend of Summer.    I give you this song to get  your inner surfer going.

During the three-day weekend we are processing the Crescent phase of the moon.     As we know we are extra observant in this phase because information is coming to us in all shapes and sizes.   On this Crescent the accent is on:

Focus :  How does your schedule reflect balance?  What information are you learning that speaks of where you need to find balance?  What are you learning about how fine-tuning your relationship.  What are you learning that would be practical help in your relationships?  How is your partnership?  Are you more of a partner than you realized?  Are there weaknesses.

Then on Tuesday we move into  First Quarter Moon.   Any seeds we planted last week on the New Moon will now benefit by action.   Get some opinions from others.   Reach out to people who know more.  Water those seeds from sources that could feel ‘foreign’.

First Quarter Moon
September 2
7:11am EDT

Focus on:  What actions can you take that broaden your world?  What actions can you take that build bridges between worlds?  How are you making moves that expand your knowledge?  How can you act upon smart ideas and be impromptu? 

Special focus
9/3: Sun/Pluto:  The universe rewards transformations.  Do it right now, morph, transform, shape shift our world.
9/4: Mercury/Saturn.  Our thoughts feel frozen.  Our brains feel cold.  Our coldness is out.  We see the glass half empty.  Make it work for you, if you can.

Yeah, the 4th is a wee bit skanky.  

9/5: Venus in Virgo

Gibbous Moon
September 5
5:06pm EDT  

We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions. 

Focus on:
We fine tune our executive abilities.   How does our inner CEO need fine-tuning?  How are we super practical about our position out in the greater world?   How are we being quick on our feet in our career?  

Special Focus:
9/7: Mars/Neptune.  Temper Tantrums meet Drunks.   What needs laser attention?  What needs to dissolve?   What needs dreams?  What needs a a big cut?

Virgo New Moon

Virgo New Moon
August 25, 2014
10:12am EDT

You will find my full Virgo New Moon article on MargaretWendt's Site.

Please go to link to read entire article.  In meantime, here is a little snippet:

Let us get down on our hands and knees and thank God and the Universe for this New Moon in Virgo.   Never has a tired group of people needed a new lunar phase more than all of us.   

Just to recap, for about a year we were dealing with the grand crosses (a little less but who is counting when you are getting drilled almost daily) then we had a tough Cancer lunar phase where things were exploding super fast, followed by a heart opening, sloppy, creative, love expanding Leo molten-lava-flowing- everywhere phase.    Really it was a summer that was almost too much to process.   Yippee that is why god created vodka and Virgo.    Just kidding.  We’ll leave the vodka on the shelf and focus on Virgo.  

Let’s get the bullshit part of Virgo out of the way.  It is critical, nervous, insecure, hypochondriac, shadow pecking, myopic, can’t get any kind of long range of vision because it gets lost in the here and now micro.    It can be very small.    There we have said the laundry list now let’s move on to good part of Virgo because we need it.

Virgo takes care of details.   That bowl full of bills that needs to be paid is the jurisdiction of Virgo.   That doctor’s appointment that sits in the guilty part of your brain having not been addressed for months will be healed by Virgo.   That project that needs to be tackled at work or the mess in your home that has been sitting off in the corning, throbbing and pulsating and needs to be fixed is desperate for Virgo.    And that calendar that is insane, where you are running all over the world and back and getting NO WHERE needs to be fine-tuned.  Stupid can finally be plucked out of your date book with the help of Virgo.

Virgo is a caretaker and a servant and takes care of people, places and things. Where things were crazy and fiery in Leo we get the perfect antidote in Virgo.    Anything birthed in the last few months needs Virgo to nurse it to the next level. For example, if you have realized in the last couple months you need to change your love life, your money, your career, your home, your family dynamics, your friendships, your health, your body….etc --- You absolutely need to use Virgo to get to the next stage.     Virgo is about fixing stuff.   There is something to be said that Virgo can’t get the big picture true-----but the big picture can’t be big if the small stuff is effed’ up.     And that is what Virgo will fix. 

For example, you want to go to Europe with your family next summer.  Great. Sounds fabulous.   But what is going on with your husband’s work schedule?  What is going on with your bank account?  What is going on with your relationship with your children?    You can NOT get to Florence, Italy next July if your spouse is afraid to ask for three weeks off at work, or your savings account has $500 dollars in it or your kids would rather be on their cell phone than have a conversation with you, let alone fly eight thousand miles to a foreign country.   Or if you need another example (and I can do this for pages and pages but won’t), if you need to get your career to a new level but your wardrobe looks  “poor me.”   Or your body is a mess.   Or your friendships hold you back. Or you haven’t done diligence on the research that you need to step up.   Or you are short ten units at the college from an important certificate or degree to your career….. you need to take Virgo to fix all that mess.    And it is only a mess because it has not been addressed.    Again, that is why god created Virgo so we can fix the micro.

This Week

We are in our final week of  the Leo Lunar Phase.  How are you feeling?  Do you still have energy?   How are the seeds you planted back on July 26th?   Here is what I wrote back on NEW MOON.

During the next 29 days we will be challenged to go for our bigness.  
Some of you might be saying,  “That is great but I don’t know my bigness. What is it?” 

Easy—go to the dark unprocessed side of Leo for the answers.  
For the next 29 days if you are exaggerating —why?  Why are you making something bigger than it needs to be?  What insecurity is the exaggeration masking?   And take a look at jealousy.   If you are saying “So&So is jealous,”  why?   Sure some people are jealous but who cares?  Do you need them to be jealous?  Why is your focus on that?    Or if you are picking at people who are in the limelight, why?   Seriously, why do you care?   And if you are thin skinned and see disloyalty everywhere you turn, why?  Isn’t the most important loyalty for you to seek is the loyalty you have to self?  And if you are complaining about a person in power at your job or your church or etc and you could do a better job, why aren’t you going for it?   And of course if your ego is completely running the show and your self esteem is in the closet--  Remember:, low self esteem equals high ego.  High self esteem equals low ego.    We use the dark side of Leo to help us now where we need to  get authentic, brave, daring, dramatic, bold, creative, life affirming and loving.  Don’t you need that?   I see you nodding.

We all need to go over that list for the next four weeks.   Not to beat ourselves up but to remember, “oh, I’m being petty (Leo unprocessed) because it is easier to do that then to do the work I need to do to get the life I really want and deserve

So, where are you on being big?  Where are you wrapped up in smallness?  Can you shake it?  Can you move on the seeds you planted and get to a new level of your creative, bigness?    Yes, you can.   Please do it.

Last Quarter Moon Phase
Aug 17
8:25am EDT

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:

What actions can you take that support concrete ways to build things?   How are possessions supporting your ‘bigness’?  What actions can you take that support your money, your properties and real estate?  

Special focus:
8/17:  Venus/Jupiter Big love, big spending, big values, big Bigness. 
8/18: Mercury/Neptune.  Illusions, delusions, crazy talk, crazy thoughts.  Where is faith? 

Balsamic Moon Phase
Aug 21
7:17am  EDT  

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on We release our emotions.  We release our neediness.   We release our family.   We release our cloyingness.   We release our roots.     

Special focus:
8/21: Mercury/Pluto:  Thinking is overhauled.  Speech is re-energized.  Finding new thoughts.   New resources are being figured out.

This Week

The Full Moon Phase continues at the beginning of the week and I think we probably all felt it a wee bit when Robin Williams death was announced.   Although the moon was not in Aquarius yesterday the full phase is based on the chart of the exact moment of full moon and with Aquarius it speaks to large groups of like minded people united on something.    Sad, it showed up this way.    Anyway, tomorrow we move into Disseminating Phase.    There is a great aspect on Friday with Mars. If you have to do a bunch of stuff--plan it for Friday!

Disseminating Moon Phase

Focus on: How are you sharing your leadership?  How are you sharing your inner warrior?  How are you sharing your ability to go out alone? How are you sharing your break outs?

Special focus:
 8/15:  Mars/Pluto.   Rebirth, re-energized.  Our actions feels as if they are refreshed and have new access to empowerment.  
8/15: Mercury enters Virgo
