Love, Hate, Peace & Karma: Equinox, Mercury Direct, Jupiter in Libra | Navratri Web Series

Personal Astrology & Tarot Consultations

Pisces Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse, Sept. 16-30, 2016


Dear Friends,

Happy Equinox! Mercury is now direct, and the Sun entered Libra at 10:21 AM EDT on Sept. 22, 2016 marking the Equinox — a time of equal days and nights, as nature seeks its balance.

Art by Arun Kale. Copyright Arun Kale.The scales are tipping as we enter Libra season, and the next four weeks are bringing home the lessons of the coming year as we move through this transit of Jupiter in Libra — which I’m calling the ‘Great Equalizer.’

Libra’s symbol is the scales; it represents the truth, justice, peace, harmony, relationships and ‘Karma’ — the law of cause and effect — which operates on every level the physical to metaphysical.

When we study astrology, we’re studying planetary cycles from the view point of the earth. These are archetypal energies, alive within each human being, that we act and play out consciously or unconsciously on the material plane, in this great cosmic dance.

Every year, as the Sun passes through each sign making its way around the zodiac, it shines a spotlight on an area of our life on a personal, and collective level. This is the churning of the great cosmic ocean, within and around us. Asking that we move in awareness and remain centered, as we embody these lessons as part of our learning in this school of life; rather than feel tossed around by the eternal, karmic, ‘Wheel of Fortune.’

Yesterday, two more black men were shot to death at the hands of law enforcement for apparently no justified reason; which then led to peaceful and violent protests. I don’t usually comment on mundane events, but what’s happening now is indicative and reflective of the cosmic climate. In the face against those who abuse their power, it’s natural to feel powerless and want to revolt.

The Pluto-Uranus square since 2012 has brought these issues to the forefront. As Jupiter moves through Libra over the coming year, it squares Pluto, and opposes Uranus in Aries — equalising situations, one way or another. With Pluto at the helm of the T-square — change is here, but with awareness there can be a conscious deconstruction, rather than destruction.

You cannot control another, or a situation, but you can control your response, engagement or involvement. Even inaction is an action and you have the choice. It will call for serenity and wisdom, to change the things we can, accept what we cannot, and wisdom to know the difference. Ask yourself — peace, but at what cost?

Beyond the Veil… : Pisces Lunar Eclipse moving to Libra New Moon…

Personal Astrology & Tarot Consultations

Pisces Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse, Sept. 16-30, 2016

Dear Friends,

We’re coming down from the energy of the Pisces Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse now, which was exact at 3:05 PM EDT on Sept. 16, 2016.
11044597_10152599158080706_755534299139446194_n This marked the culmination of the Eclipses and the cycle that began with the Virgo New Moon on Sept. 17, 2016 — leading us to the next New Moon in Libra at the end of the month.

As the energy of the Eclipse spills over — there’s a sense of a veil being lifted, bringing clarity on a dream and a deeper glimpse into a situation, beyond illusions — to reveal reality and the infinite possibilities within in.

Over the next two weeks — the energy is shifting noticeably and rapidly, ushering us into a very different landscape than we’ve been in all year.

Sept. 22 : Mercury stations Direct at 14+ Virgo; Sun reaches Equinox and enters Libra
Sept. 23 – Oct. 18: Venus in Scorpio
Sept. 26 : Sun conjuncts Jupiter in Libra, Pluto stations Direct
Sept. 27 – Nov. 9 : Mars enters Capricorn
Sept. 30 : Libra New Moon at 7+ Libra

Mercury’s direct station with the Equinox suggests there’s information surfacing, tipping the scales in a situation that’s been hanging by a thread — towards restoring balance.

This seems to start a domino effect: the next day Venus enters Scorpio — suggesting financial situations and all relationships are evolving. Also the annual Sun-Jupiter conjunction occurs on the day of Pluto’s direct station.

With the Pluto direct station, there’s a smoldering intensity in the air and it feels like the ground shifting under our feet. This is bound to bring huge, life changing opportunities and choices — the gravity of which we’re likely to only see in hindsight — as a time when things began to change.

The story of this year has largely been dominated by Mars’ long transit through Sagittarius; which has taken us on a long and winding journey of exploration, over the past six months.

As Mars changes signs to enter Capricorn, the sign of its exaltation, we’re new territory and there’s a sense of finally landing after a long flight to reaching the ‘promised land.’

I’ve interpreted all the above transits, and the aspects surrounding the Lunar Eclipse, seeding the energy over the next two weeks in detail in my Pisces Lunar Eclipse report. Below is an excerpt.

I’ll be back with more astrology and in the meanwhile, I’m available for Personal Astrology & Tarot Consultations. To gain deeper insight into your chart, transits and how you can work with this energy, email me to schedule a session at priya@cosmicdiaries.com. I look forward to working with you!

(Consultations are done via Skype, phone or in person in NYC. For first time clients, I recommend two sessions to start. But even if you choose to do just one, it’s better than none!)

Love,

Priya

Excerpt ==

“Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac — it represents all there is; the seen and unseen, the manifest and the unmanifest — the great void from which all of creation is born. It is the most ethereal, permeable form of energy; this is ‘God,’ the primordial sea of ( Christ or Krishna) consciousness — omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.

“Neptune being the modern ruler of Pisces — this Pisces Lunar Eclipse is also bringing us to the crux and culmination of of the Saturn-Neptune square we’ve been under the influence of over the past year, with the most recent exact aspect on Sept. 10, 2016.

“This has been a process of separating fact from fiction, and a deeper journeying to the source (within) to discover and realise an eternal unchanging truth and reality.

“With the Virgo-Pisces axis — all is possible, if you are willing to work towards it. As you move forward from this Eclipse — the veil is being lifted offering clarity and a deeper glimpse into a situation and the infinite possibilities.

“Dreams are visions that do not yet exist in physical form but we have the power to create, using available resources. Illusions are distortions of perceptions, imposed on present reality, clouding clarity — running us into ‘obstacles’.

“Clarify a dream and keep it alive, as you let go of illusions and all that no longer serves your goals. Then with the Libra New Moon, you can plant new seeds, make new conscious, creative choices in your life and your relationships — and breathe life into a dream.”

Jupiter in Libra Horoscopes: 2016 – 2017

Cosmic Diaries: Jupiter in Libra – 2016-2107 & September Monthly Horoscopes

— by Priya Kale



Aries. Illustration by Arun Kale ARIES – If you’ve been fighting a lonely battle, you can breathe a sigh of relief, as people finally start to step up to the plate now. On the other hand, if the cracks are starting to show in a situation or relationship, this is your chance to heal and restore peace, starting with recognizing your role in its creation. “It takes two to tango.” Remember this as Jupiter enters and moves through Libra, your relationship zone, over the coming year. Your relationships are moving to the next level, have a lot to offer. You have more than one attractive option to choose from and can form successful financial and creative partnerships that you make a formidable team with. In personal relationships too, there’s real support and love in your world, especially, one significant other who does truly love you. Relationships are at best a mirror and yours have a lot to teach you: about yourself and the way this world works. If you don’t like what you’re getting, or seeing; rather than look to blame others, ask yourself what you could do differently. Or where you might be giving with expectations, which often leads to disappointment. Acknowledge the relationships that heal and challenge you to grown, and those you’ve outgrown. Be clear on your long-term goals — personally, professionally, in relationships — then it will be easier to align with and inspire the support of others who share your vision. You know people who have walked the path you are on, who can offer you valuable advice, guidance and be your companions on the road ahead. It takes humility to listen, admit your mistakes, and where you have been wrong, but there is nothing shameful about it. You’re learning what it means to have equal partnerships, which ask for mutual love, respect, shared values, a balance of give and take, ability to forgive, learn, grow and work as a team towards a higher purpose and common goal. Love is not something you get or give, but something you share; and respect is not something you demand, it has to be earned. As long as there is mutual love and respect, you can find a way forward that works for everyone, allowing you to restore peace and harmony in any situation. Above all what you need is perspective. Life is a journey and there’s more love and tangible support in your life than any lack. Regardless of what you’ve feared, you need not make this journey alone.

For a more in-depth personal look at how you can make the most of Jupiter in Libra, email me to schedule a Consultation at priya@cosmcidiaries.com. I look forward to working with you!

TAURUS – Jupiter enters Libra this month, and transits through your 6th House over the coming year, bringing your health, work, daily routines and really your whole life into focus. The key is — balance, balance, balance. You have more creative potential and love within you than most dream of, and you’ve barely scratched the surface. Finding a work-life balance has been a challenge in the past, but with a little effort, things can get a lot easier and sweeter, allowing you to get back in the swing of things, where recently you’ve felt stuck. Work will be busier, but it’s important you balance it with down time to have fun, be inspired, and rest. You can also make huge progress this year with project dear to your heart, which could potentially be very financially lucrative. It’s not necessarily about working harder, but smarter — creative solutions abound. Ultimately its your selfless devotion, that’s worth its weight in gold. You can create the life you desire, that gives back to the world, and have fun doing. It starts with creating space for it, and letting go of attachments you’ve outgrown — emotionally, materially, mentally, psychologically. It will also call making conscious, creative, wise choices in how you use your time, money and energy in every moment. There something to the old saying “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a wo/man healthy, wealthy and wise” that would serve you well this year. In personal relationships, you’ve learned difficult lessons over the past four years, but there is deep healing on offer now. It may sound like a tall order: but you can have the sexual passion, chemistry, intimacy, security, deep love, companionship and someone to share life’s ups and downs with, (peacefully, without the drama) — if you are not attached to it; or anyone in particular, and are not afraid to put up boundaries. No relationship is perfect, and all relationships require compromise give and take. Take things a day at time; as long as there is growth, mutual love, and respect, you can resolve any situation peacefully. And as you make healthier choices, you can heal and resurrect a relationship, or attract the right partner to you. Even if you’re currently single, you’re certainly not alone. You have a lot of love to give, and it’s important you share it with all you meet — from your colleagues, to your doorman, to the person in the street. It is not your job to determine who is or isn’t worthy of love and a small act of kindness could change someone’s world. And you never know when or where, you will meet (perhaps a special) someone who will change your world. There is a devotional aspect to this energy — asking you to live your “dharma” (faith) and offer “seva” (selfless service.) Ultimately what matters is your quality of life if your life is a gift to others, and if the world is more beautiful because of it. Dig deep to find what brings you joy and put your heart in every little thing you do — it is in giving you receive. Then your life will blossom and your presence itself will be a healing one that lingers like fragrance. You’re learning, when you love life, life loves you back.

For a more in-depth personal look at how you can make the most of Jupiter in Libra, email me to schedule a Consultation at priya@cosmcidiaries.com. I look forward to working with you!

GEMINI —Jupiter enters Libra this month, your 5th house, the part of your chart that relates with love, sex and sexuality, romance, children, creativity, adventure, passion and inner-most self — highlighting these themes in your life. There’s something or someone you want now, that’s deep under your skin, and makes your heart skip a beat. It will call for you to be spontaneous, confident put your heart on the line. Naturally it can be scary to be vulnerable, but the real risk would be to pass up a chance to be happy. You could fall in love, perhaps all over again. Creatively too your blossoming with ideas and can form lucrative partnership with others who inspire you. Whether you’ve known someone for fifteen minutes or fifteen years — what matters is honesty about where you stand today, which starts with yourself. There’s nothing wrong with love, sex, both, or either; but know the difference and what it is that you want.  If there is hesitation, or something’s holding you back, dig deeper to get to the heart of a matter; be honest and acknowledge your insecurities, fears, desires — which often masquerade as each other. You’ve been burned before, but if you’ve learned from the past you needn’t have a guard up or fear re-creating your patterns. Love is not something you get or give, it’s something you share; a flowering of your being. And true love or happiness, cannot depend on anyone or anything external, nor can it come at another’s expense — or it will be fleeting. It has to be rooted in the self to be lasting. Dig deep as you explore what brings you joy, inner peace and makes glad to be alive. Love yourself; take up a hobby or do something you’ve always wanted — with or without a partner. You could meet someone who gets you on a whole other level, and helps you discover new parts of yourself, or reconnect with a partner in a whole new way. Children too have a lot to teach you about love, life, being in the moment, playing nice, and not holding on to resentments. It might take a while to find your balance but, the more you step out of your comfort zone, you will discover talents, abilities, desires and parts of yourself you didn’t know existed. Every moment is a new moment, and your choices in the present are creating your reality. Put the past behind you as create and live a life you love. Regardless of your doubts: you’re more attractive, creative, charming, loving, and sexier than you realize and there’s nothing more attractive than someone who loves life. When in doubt, trust and follow your heart — it’s wiser than you think and will not lead you astray.

For a more in-depth personal look at how you can make the most of Jupiter in Libra, email me to schedule a Consultation at priya@cosmcidiaries.com. I look forward to working with you!

CANCER – As Jupiter enters and transits through Libra, your 4th House, there’s opportunity knocking. For some this might mean a physical move, change in family dynamic or a domestic partnership; you could be buying or selling property. The transit suggests an expansion on the home front, and a year that finds you growing in your sense of emotional and financial security; as you deepening your closest relationships and support system. You’ve been working hard over the past year, and your efforts are paying off. Now you get a chance to put your feet up, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor more; and you could even save up a little nest egg. This doesn’t mean there won’t be work, on the contrary, you’re likely to be busier than ever; but you’re also (hopefully) learning to prioritize, and to say “no”. It’s crucial to have a work-life balance with time to retreat to the comforts of home, rest, re-charge and find your inner peace, balance, well-being. Without which your health, work, relationships, family life all suffer and you risk destabilizing everything you’ve worked so hard for. A house is not a home, unless you share it with those you love; and home is where the heart is. You will have plenty of opportunities to entertain this year — it seems like a festive time. If on the other hand, a domestic or family situation is out of balance, or you’re feeling overwhelmed with all that’s on your plate — this is your chance to renegotiate important arrangements so they work better for everyone. Get to the bottom of the truth and talk about the elephant in the room, rather than play the blame game, or point fingers, or focus on surface, daily irritations and distractions. What was your childhood like? Did you feel emotionally and financially secure and supported? Was it a peaceful, loving environment? What was your parents’ relationship like? You can’t change the past, for better or worse — but you can let go of past resentments, and painful memories that keep you trapped in your head and past; and get out of a vicious, unproductive cycle. Be honest with yourself and you can recognize what and who truly matters, then make choices accordingly. It will call for honesty, love, fairness, and forgiveness; but you can heal a rift and restore peace in a situation. You’re learning, no matter how crazy it gets out there — you have support from your family (blood and/or soul,) and inner circle that truly love you. Financially too, you have a safety net; be wise and you can make your resources go far. Clear space of what you’ve outgrown, from old mental attitudes, to past realities, and you can create room for the abundance and good times entering your world. This is the stuff happy memories are made of.

For a more in-depth personal look at how you can make the most of Jupiter in Libra, email me to schedule a Consultation at priya@cosmcidiaries.com. I look forward to working with you!

Garden of Eden: Virgo New Moon & Solar Eclipse

~~

Vakratunda mahaakaaya suryakoti samaprabhaa
Nirvighnam kurumedeva sarvakaaryeshu sarvadaa

Salutations to the supreme Lord Ganesh, whose curved trunk (vakra-tunda) and massive body (maha-kaayaa) shines like a million suns (surya-koti) and showers his blessings on everyone (sama-prabhaa). Oh my lord of lords Ganesh (kurume-deva), kindly remove all obstacles (nir-vighnam), always (sarva-) and forever (sarvadaa-) from all my activities and endeavors (sarva-kaaryeshu).

~~

Welcome to the Virgo New Moon & Solar Eclipse and September…

The winds of change are blowing strong as we enter September and this very magical period between the Eclipses.

Significantly, the fourth day after this Virgo New Moon (Sept. 5, 2016,) marks the very auspicious period of the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, celebrating the omnipresent in the form of the elephant headed God.

100_5714

Even if you don’t do an elaborate puja or ritual, take the time to offer a simple prayer to Ganesha — to ask for his grace and blessings in your life over the coming year.

If you want to learn more — I’m including links from my Guru, Sri Amma Karunamayi, at the bottom of this email, explaining the very real significance of the current energy, the festival, and how you can observe and celebrate it.

Coming back to the skies — aspects at the time of a New and Full Moon seed a cycle for two weeks. Eclipses set patterns for at least six months, often longer. So pay attention to what you’re setting into motion now. With Virgo, every thought, word and deed counts, and is what is ultimately drawing you to your destiny, creating your life.

This Eclipse was in opposition to Neptune, so I wouldn’t rule out minor miracles over the coming two weeks. And the energy surrounding the Pisces Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse seems pretty romantic to me. But first with the planets stacked in Virgo, we’re also getting a heavy dose of reality,

Be conscious not to delude yourself; magical thinking alone won’t work, you will still need to do the work, and then leave room for grace. This is Jupiter’s last week in Virgo: where you’ve been working selflessly with devotion, you will be rewarded.

Jupiter enters Libra on Sept. 9, 2016, ushering us into a whole new world, moving relationships to a new level, asking for balance and wisdom as you make life-changing choices.

I’ve just sent out a detailed and extensive report to subscribers, covering the energy of this Eclipse and aspects surrounding it. So if you would like to read that, you can make a one time purchase or sign up here. Or email me to schedule a Personal Astrology or Tarot Consultation at priya@cosmicdiaries.com. I would love to work with you!

With love and Blessings for an auspicious Ganesh Chaturthi and Eclipse season!

Priya

Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Virgo, Mercury retrograde, Moving to the Virgo New Moon and Eclipse…

Astrology and Tarot Consultations

If you’re reading this, you made it.

We’re past the Mars-Saturn conjunction, exact Wednesday morning at 7:26 AM EDT; the Sun is in Virgo now, and the Moon is currently in Taurus. Also, Mars is out of shadow and in new territory for the first time since April 18, 2016.

14022215_10153646794440706_7037465909767725838_nChapters have ended. As heavy as the energy has felt, we are out the other side and coming aspects suggest there is a clearing ahead, revealing new horizons and pastures. But you can’t explore them if you’re still looking over your shoulder.

I wandered into Church two days ago. As I looked at Jesus on the cross, I couldn’t help noticing the symbolism of the Mars -Saturn conjunction in Sagittarius — Jesus was human, divine, and he was crucified.

We all have our cross to bear — and there have been serious, harsh, perhaps life-altering realities to deal with — but there is also a promise of grace.

Especially now, as Venus conjuncts Jupiter in Virgo days later on Aug. 26, 2016, this feels like a healing balm, after what we’ve recently been through.

This doesn’t mean you won’t have to work for something — it could be overwhelming to recognise all that has to be dealt with in the aftermath of what’s unfolded recently and over the Mars retrograde cycle —  but with a little effort, and spoonful of sugar, you can make huge progress.

Recognize what’s truly valuable in your life, and all you have to be grateful for. The little things count and this is a reminder to be appreciative of all things, and sentient beings — great and small. If you find yourself feeling sorry for yourself, do something for someone less fortunate. Virgo is a reminder of selfless service — a little kindness can go a long way. You are indeed the hands of the creator, who serves, heals and loves through you.

Aside from the Venus-Jupiter conjunction, we’re also in Eclipse season now: moving to the Virgo New Moon and Solar Eclipse on Sep. 1, 2016, which occurs days after Mercury’s retrograde station in Virgo on Aug. 30, 2016.

Time. Tide. Here. Now. | Saturn stations Direct in Sagittarius, Aquarius Full Moon

Mars-Saturn Discount on 60 min Consultation — $108.00
(purchase by Aug. 30, 2016)

Dear Friends,

Saturn stationed direct in Sagittarius on Aug. 13, 2016 at 5:49 AM EDT and we’re moving to the Aquarius Full Moon on Aug. 18, 2016 at 5:26 AM EDT, bringing us a full blast of the current Saturnian energy.

Saturn represents a gateway, mortal limits, “time.” Over the past few days, it might have felt like time standing still. With the Sun currently in Leo representing the “here, now” — you stand at the gateway between the past and the future. Your whole life has led up to this moment. As Saturn stations direct and slowly gains momentum: tides are turning, the rules, goal-posts and times changing, asking you to stay rooted in your integrity as you journey forth.

Where ever you have Sagittarius in your chart, that area of your life has been highlighted since Saturn entered the sign back in December 2014. Saturn’s recent retrograde transit since March 25, 2016 has asked you to dig deep. But it has also hopefully led to the discovery of an inner truth, strength, resilience, a realization of what you’re really made of, and a higher force that sustains your life.

Over the past year we’ve also been under the influence of a Saturn Neptune square, asking us to separate fact from fantasy and journey to the source, within, to discover a sublime truth. In the chart for Saturn’s direct station, Venus was caught in the net of Saturn-Neptune — highlighting relationships, finances, creative situations and significantly our “values;” bringing us to a turning point.

With Saturn at the helm of the T-square, this is a pivotal moment. How something unfolds, hinges on your ability to embody the lessons you’ve learned through Saturn’s time in Sagittarius and move in awareness of the weight of your choices. There is no wrong choice, but it’s important you clarify your goals and take responsibility for your life. Only then can you find the power to shift or turn something around.

How far have you come? What have you learned? Where are you going? What are your long-term goals? How far do you have to go? What do you need to leave behind, so you can travel light and make progress?

Be conscious of your defenses; walls that were meant to protect but now keep you trapped. Recognize where pride, ego, fears of rejection, failure, being vulnerable prevent you from sharing or receiving love, expressing yourself, earning the income, or attracting the resources you need. Acknowledge what is or isn’t working.

Examine your relationship with money. What was your parents relationship to money? What were their values surrounding relationships? What and who do you value? What are the patterns you do not wish to repeat and the inner blockages you need to release? How can you introduce structure to your creativity, package an idea, bottle your special magic?

Be real with yourself and in no denial of your fantasies and projections. But allow yourself to be inspired and look more closely at something you thought or think is impossible — it might not be. It will require creativity, love, imagination, discipline, devotion, time and dedication to bring something into being.

In personal relationships as well, be honest about what is and isn’t working for you, where you need to heal, what you need to let go of, or be more emotionally detached from. Forgiveness is important. Not necessarily for another but, for you, to lighten your load as you move forward. No one is perfect; if you learn from something you needn’t continue to carry a burden and can strengthen relationships you value and that truly value you.

Meanwhile, Mercury is in shadow, soon to station retrograde; also Gemini is the sign opposite Saturn — both indicating a need to keep channels of communication open to find balance and work through a process constructively. This is a work in progress; there are more layers to something or someone than meets the eye, so don’t be too quick to judge or make life-changing decisions until you have clarity.

Also, we’re approaching Mars’ conjunction to Saturn on Aug. 25, 2016, only days after Mars leaves shadow phase on Aug 22, 2016, entering new territory for the first time since April 18, 2016. A Mars-Saturn conjunction takes place every two years (last one occurred in Scorpio in August 2014) — marking the end and beginning of a two year cycle.  It would be helpful to look back to see what was beginning and ending then, and where you want to go from here.

These are considered the two “malefics” in astrology — their influence often bringing us to a confrontation of the harsher realities of life. But this year, interestingly the conjunction of Mars and Saturn is followed almost immediately on Aug. 27, 2016 by a triple conjunction of the two ‘benefics’ Venus and Jupiter, along with Mercury.

13937764_10153627195920706_2749381052310766575_oNone of what you’re dealing with is easy, but it is not without purpose. The Venus-Jupiter conjunction suggests no matter how messy a situation might have gotten, there is a gift in it for you waiting on the other side. So don’t resent something — be grateful.

Where you’ve been feeling stuck or coming up against a wall, there is a way forward. But brute force, or imposing your will on a situation or the Universe won’t work.

Be determined, focused, smart, wise and constructive and you can harness the energy to cut through red-tape, seemingly walk through walls, and make solid progress.

Over the coming days as you move to the Aquarius Full Moon, and through the end of the month as this energy spills over — expect situations to come to a head bringing endings, revelations and breakthroughs.

Saturn being the traditional ruler of Aquarius, the lunation is bringing home its lessons in an undeniable way.

Look around your life, what’s blossoming and starting to bloom? What do you need to nurture? What do you need to weed out, so you can start with a clean slate? Doors are closing, new ones opening, asking you to be brave, courageous and mindful as you walk through them.

Cling to no one or nothing; the Aquarius Full Moon asks for detachment. At best we are fellow travellers on an individual journey. Even if paths diverge, real love transcends space and time. And the Full Moon is asking and liberating us to love and accept ourselves and others more wholly, freely, without bondage and expectations.

For all that’s up in the air, be unafraid to clear space as you move to the Virgo New Moon and Eclipse, offering a new start. What’s meant to be in your life will survive the storm, or meet you again on your path when the dust has settled.

Life is a journey, and no matter how far you’ve gone in a direction its never too late to turn around and start over. You are creating your life in every moment and every choice you make, takes you closer or further from your goals and the life you envision. Choose wisely.

Saturn’s direct station is a reality check and chance for course corrections as you move forward, onward and upward…

~~

“Tomorrow we will give them only
a leaf from the tree of our love, a leaf
dropped on the earth
as though it had been made by our lips
as though it were a kiss that had fallen
from unfathomable heights
to show the fire and the tenderness
of a love that is true.”

— Pablo Neruda, ‘And Because Love Battles’

Dear Friends,

We’re in for a passionate weekend!

Venus in Virgo squares Mars in Sagittarius, on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016, at 8:19 PM EDT, followed by Mercury’s opposition to Neptune on Aug. 7, 2016 at 12:24 PM EDT.

Relationships, financial and creative situations are heating up, bringing us to a significant turning point.

Over the past month/s Venus and Mars were moving through Leo and Scorpio, both fixed, and very passionate signs. Now, both planets are in a square in mutable signs, suggesting quick changes in dynamic of relationships, financial and creative situations.

over-the-town-1918Notably the Moon is in Libra this weekend, also highlighting relationships and asking for balanced emotions first. Then you can respond and resolve situations creatively, lovingly and peacefully to create balance and harmony with others.

If something or someone triggers you, keep those fingers and your gaze pointed inwards. A square asks that we find a way to integrate the planetary energies internally first, then there can be a sense of resolution. This begins with deep honesty with yourself.

Also, Mercury is approaching an opposition to Neptune.
All is not as it seems. If in doubt, and definitely if you feel too certain about something — it would be best to spend this time in self-reflection till clarity returns. Rather than make assumptions, jump to conclusions, and or make life changing decisions.

In all conversations and negotiations, especially surrounding money or love, transparency is key. Also be conscious of your ideas about relationships, money, or how you think things should be or work.

Venus is the planet of love, beauty, relationships, money, what we value — beyond just the material, the feminine principle. Mars is the planet of sex, war, ambition, passion, drive, the primal fire, the masculine principle.

What do you want from a situation that frustrating you, or you can’t seem to make sense of? What do you want personally, sexually, financially, in a relationship, (not necessarily from a particular person,) from your work and life? What would you do to get it? And more importantly, what you are willing to give?

Avoid idealizing; or judgement (of yourself, others, or a situation), blame, being critical, expecting another to be responsible for your desires, trying to please, or making sacrifices and then resenting. Instead dare to acknowledge your desires — sexual, creative, emotional, financial, and or material.

Be aware of your ego, pride, defensiveness, fears of rejection, failure, needs for validation, etc. that prevent you from expressing your love, heart, art, or yourself authentically; and attracting the love, resources or support you need. Money is not dirty, neither is sex — it’s the purity and love in one’s heart, one’s integrity, intentions and values that matter.

Nothing and no one is perfect. The most dangerous lies are the ones we tell ourselves. At best you can be honest with yourself about whether a relationship or situation is healing, if there is growth, what is and isn’t working, and your role in it. Clarify that, then you do what you need to do.

Something might not be as impossible as it seems, but be realistic about the time, energy, effort, and devotion it will take to manifest something and what needs to heal.

Whatever the challenge you face — you have the skills, knowledge and resources you need, and the love you seek is already within you.

With Love,

Priya
