Soulstrology Guide to Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse 2017

Quote from the screenplay for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by Eric Roth, screenwriter

Hello lovely ones and HAPPY nearly New Moon Solar Eclipse!

In an earlier post on the Membership section we talked about the double date with destiny of Leo season and the two Leo New Moons, the second of which is a total (yikes!) Solar Eclipse which will take place on Monday August 21 2017 at 10.21am PST.

As I mentioned last week in the Soulstrology Guide to this Mercury retrograde at this second Leo New Moon, this very powerful Solar Eclipse, the themes of Virgo (both in the natural zodiac and in our unique natal and solar charts) are at play.

So, here is the little Soulstrology Guide for this Leo Solar Eclipse which takes into consideration both the Virgo and Leo themes which are in the cosmic spotlight.

As always, please read for both your Sun and Rising sign.

Also, remember that as this is a Solar Eclipse we want to be thinking about setting intentions not only for the next lunar cycle/month but also for the next six months and the next eclipse season!

So, having read the Soulstrology Leo Solar Eclipse blog please make two manifesting lists.

One for this next lunar month and one to come to fruition by next February 2018.

Happy Manifesting and New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Aries: Think carefully about your daily routine and lifestyle, your health -mind/body and soul, and how this impacts upon how you have fun, socialize and express yourself, how you love/date/enjoy romance, and any children in your life - whether yours, others, or children you want to have. How can you find balance between both these areas of life, assisting you with manifesting in the latter?

Taurus: Focus on how you have fun, your hobbies, your love life - who and how you love, how you express yourself and any children in your life - whether yours, others or children you want to have. How do these areas of life impact upon goals you may have to do with private, domestic you? With who, what and where you consider home and family? Think about jointly manifesting in BOTH these areas of life with a focus on how the former plays into the latter.

Gemini: Your mind, communication, your voice in all formats (including related projects) is in the cosmic spotlight...but how does your early childhood, early education and family life play into how you are, or not, manifesting in these areas in the solar spotlight? Think carefully about bringing harmony into both these areas of life, allowing you to manifest more smoothly in the former.

Cancer: How does your mind and the communication you have with yourself (arguably the most important conversation of all) impact your self-esteem, your values and as a result how you earn your money? Think about projects you may have that are essentially do with your 'voice' (in all formats) which are directly linked to your personal finances and how you make money.

Leo: What and how can you heal parts of your psyche, perhaps letting go of secret self sabotage so that you can be seen as your true self and truly autonomous and manifest as your highest self? What have you been working on behind the scenes, or what part of yourself do you keep hidden which you now need to share with the world at large so everyone can experience the true you? It's a total reset for you Leo and your time in the cosmos!

Virgo: With the eclipse solar spotlight on healing and isolation and laying low you need to look at how working quietly behind the scenes, resting and healing is manifesting and will ultimately allow you to be more autonomous, independent and will empower you, allowing you to both be your best self and for others to view you as your true self.

Libra: The solar spotlight is on your tribe and your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future but the cosmos is also asking you to delve deep into your psyche and look at how you your own wounds may be preventing you from enjoying your true tribe and preventing your dreams from manifesting. Focus on healing in order to receive.

Scorpio: Look at your career goals and what you consider 'success' to be. How are these aligned with your most cherished goals for the future? A review of your personal goals for the future will assist you in manifesting in your chosen career and enjoying soulful success all round which truly satisfies you.  Align both your personal/private and public/career goals.

Sagittarius: With the solar spotlight on spirituality, religion, learning, teaching, travel andpublishing you are asked to consider how these areas play into your career goals, status and success. Understand the connection between the two and find a way of merging themes from the former into goals regarding the latter.

Capricorn: Joint projects and finances, merging and the transformation which comes from merging are in the solar spotlight. You are also being asked to consider the link between these areas of life and higher learning, your unique spirituality, foreign places and people, publishing and travel. Find the connection which allows you to manifest in both areas.

Aquarius: Your closest relationships and partnerships of all types are in the solar spotlight along with how you merge and double up with others, whether in a personal arrangement such as marriage/joining finances or a professional such as a business partnership. Aim for harmonious manifestation and transformation in both these areas of life.

Pisces: In the solar spotlight is your daily work, lifestyle and health - mind/body/soul. You are asked to focus on how close partnerships of all kinds could benefit these areas of life. Whether it's pairing up with a partner at work, or getting help from a professional to benefit your mind, body and soul, think of how you can find the connection and harmony between these two areas of life.

 

Soulstrology guide to Mercury Retrograde August 12th - September 5th 2017

Ambi Sitham

Do everything RE in Mercury retrograde....

Do everything RE in Mercury retrograde....

Hello lovely ones and I hope you are riding out the cosmic currents of August! 

Just to add a little more cosmic action to this month Mercury, planet ruling our mind, communication, travel and more...goes officially retrograde in Virgo tomorrow Saturday 12th August 2017.

Now, as many of you probably know by now, Soulstrology says that the mercury retrograde shadow period is very significant and this particular Mercury retrograde shadow started on July 24th at 29 degrees of Leo, which incidentally is the same degree as the August 21 solar eclipse...which is no cosmic coincidence!

Even though the official mercury retrograde starts at 11 degrees Virgo Soulstrology says that we must look at where we have from 29 degrees of Leo to 11 degrees of Virgo in our unique natal charts.

The emphasis is on the Virgo ruled part of our charts, and specifically between 1 - 11 degrees of Virgo, but the Leo part of our charts is also under cosmic review, particularly with the Leo solar eclipse in less than ten days.

Use the free chart calculator on my site to see where you have Virgo ruling your chart (and specifically 1 - 11 degrees) but also see where you have 29 degrees of Leo as the life areas ruled by that part of your chart are also up for review.

I will write more about the Leo element of this Mercury retrograde and the significance to the upcoming solar eclipse and give you all a detailed guide to both soon (next weekend!)

But for now, here is the Soulstrology guide to this Mercury Retrograde in Virgo.

Remember these are the life areas which may be impacted by this Mercury retrograde and which are up for review and resetting. Do everything RE with regards to these areas of life.

And to REfresh your mind on the mindful DO's of Mercury Retrograde check out my Huffington Post Mercury retrograde blog which contains timeless advice!

Read for both your sun and rising sign (if you know the latter).

Aries: - Your daily work, routine and lifestyle. Health - mind/body/soul

Taurus: - Love, dating, romance, creativity, self-expression, fun, hobbies, children - yours, ones you want to have, or others.

Gemini: - Domestic life, the domestic you. Family. Home - who, what and where you consider home.

Cancer: - Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats and related projects. Short trips, your siblings, neighbors and your local community

Leo: - Your income, personal finances and possessions. Your values - who and what you value in life, and your self-esteem.

Virgo: - Your identity, appearance, how others view you. Your personal autonomy.

Libra: - Healing, psychological matters, isolation, the hidden - work you do behind the scenes, secret projects.

Scorpio: - Friendships, groups you belong to, causes you support, your soul tribe. Your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.

Sagittarius: - Your career, status, ambition - ultimately your soul's legacy

Capricorn: - Spirituality, religion, higher learning, teaching, foreign places and people, travel, publishing and legal matters

Aquarius: - Joint finances (including debts, inheritances, loans, mortgages, investments) and joint projects, sex, merging and transformation

Pisces: - Partnerships and close relationships of all kinds - platonic, professional and romantic.

Venus in Cancer: August 1st - August 26th 2017: Diving deep into love

Hello lovely ones and happy August!

Today, Venus - planet of love, beauty, socializing and abundance - moves into watery emotional Cancer where she will stay until August 26th then moving into Leo.

Look at where you have Cancer ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Cancer as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

If you haven't already, check out the new chart calculator on the home page of the site to calculate yours (or someone else's!) chart to see where this transit is taking place in your life.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Cancer transit.

DO'S

  • Love is a verb. Venus in Cancer knows that love is a verb and this sign will go the extra mile to show their love for their loved ones. Use this transit to give yourself a heavy dose of self-love as well as to show your loved ones how much you care about them. Take pro-active steps to love yourself and others.
  • Take a trip down memory lane. Whether it is with your romantic love or platonic loved ones - family/friends, Venus in Cancer is all about sentimentality and honoring the past. Use the past to inject some extra sentimental love in all your relationships
  • Traditional romance. This transit is about bringing good old fashioned romance back into your love life. Whether you've been together for a long time or are are newly dating make sure to engage in some old school romance, think candle lit dinners, roses, picnics etc
  • Be committed. Venus in Cancer is all about commitment and showing love through devotion. How can you commit to loving yourself better or committing to loving others (all relationships) in your life better showing them your devotion? This transit is also good for recommitting to each other.

DON'TS

  • Be possessive. Venus in Cancer can make us a like a crab with the object of our affections in our pincers and holding on a little too tight...Be wary of being possessive over your loved one (s).
  • Be moody. This transit can make us passive aggressive and moody if we feel in some way slighted by our lover. Rather than talk about it directly we can internalize our feelings resulting in us being overly moody and not actually expressing our issue, which just makes matters worse!
  • Over do it. This transit can make us do a little too much for the object of our affections. We can be so overwhelmed by love that we give a little too much (yes there is such a thing!) and then resent it if we feel that our loved ones are not reciprocating.
  • Be stingy. Venus in Cancer can make us frugal and frugality is to be admired but not when we are stingy with ourselves or others. Strike the balance!

Cancer and Cancer risings this next month is your time to enjoy what Soulstrology likes to call the Venus filter! It gives a great glow!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Cancer.

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus - think love, harmony, creativity, abundance!

 

SOULSTROLOGY VENUS IN CANCER GUIDE

  • Aries - home - who what and where you consider home, family, your childhood, domestic life
  • Taurus -your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats and related projects, short trips, your siblings, neighbors and local community
  • Gemini - your income, your possessions, your personal finances, your values (who and what you value in life) and your self-esteem

Mars in Leo: July 22 - September 5 2017: Courageous, heart centered action

Ambi Sitham

On June 22nd, the day before the first of two Leo New Moons, Mars the planet of courage, ambition, action and leadership moved into Leo.

Mars is well placed in Leo, they are much more compatible bedfellows than Mars and Cancer.

The fiery energy of the red planet goes well with the fiery energy of Leo. 

Leo and Leo risings, the next six weeks is a VERY powerful time for you.

You not only have the zodiac manifestor in your sign but you also have two New Moons (one of which is a solar eclipse) in your signs. It's all about YOU, Leo/Leo risings!

For those of you with your natal Mars in Leo, you are experiencing your Mars return so it's also a super potent cosmic window for you as you sow the seeds for success over the next two years of your life.

See my earlier Ask Ambi Q+A (Mars Return) to understand what the return of Mars means for you, regardless of your Mars sign.

Whatever our zodiac sign, each of us has the ability to harness the power of this six week transit to take heart centered, courageous action in the Leo ruled parts of our charts/lives, to express our true, highest selves. As this transit coincides with eclipse season it's a powerful time in the cosmos!

Although Mars in Leo can be very positive and powerful as always there is a duality to all signs and transits and with this one it's about too much energy or too much fire which can result in an explosion, or someone getting burnt (literally and figuratively).

We must be mindful to avoid the shadow of this transit and burning out or getting burnt!

Consciousness is key as is channeling the energies properly.

DO's

  • Listen to and follow your heart. If you really tune into your heart, you will tune into your higher self and what you need to do over this transit
  • Be courageous. Adopt the consciousness of courage. Courage doesn't come easily to everyone but remember that courage is a muscle which is strengthened by use. 
  • Be confident. The key themes and traits of both the planet Mars and Leo are confidence, autonomy and leadership. Be bold over this transit. Fortune favors the bold!
  • Enjoy life, love and romance. Leo rules fun, hobbies, love and romance. Mars rules sex. You get the picture! 

DON'TS

  • Let your ego get the better of you. The shadow of confidence is arrogance. The shadow of enjoying the limelight is being narcissistic and hogging the limelight. With both Mars and Leo being all about self-expression and leadership, we must be mindful to not take it too far. Our ego is not our amigo!
  • Be aggressive. The shadow of Mars is aggression, conflict and war. The shadow of Leo is to be over the top, in your face, and yes at times to be too much. Too much of anything can be abad thing. Don't let your enthusiasm or over excitement boil over...
  • Be impulsive.  Both Mars and Leo have an impulsive shadow. Remember what is done in haste is often regretted at leisure.
  • Overspend.  Leos are known for their generosity but this can sometimes be too much in theme with the over the top, impulsive shadow referred to above. Careful of burning through your money during this time.
  • Get burnt. Literally and figuratively. What's the downside of the sun? Sunburn. Sunstroke. Be careful of how much physical and energetic sun you expose yourself to. Burns and fire hazards are two things to watch out for during this transit. Also, remember Icarus who flew too close to the sun and melted? As above, too much of anything can be a bad thing!

SOULSTROLOGY GUIDE

Below is a Soulstrology guide for each sign (read for both your sun and rising sign) identifying the life areas that will be experiencing this Mars in Leo transit.

  • Aries: Your love life - romance/dating, fun, hobbies, self-expresion, creativity and children - whether yours or others, or your inner child.
  • Taurus: Home - who, what and where means home to you, family, your childhood, the private/domestic you and your home life.
  • Gemini: Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats including related projects, neighbors, siblings, short trips
  • Cancer: Your personal income and finances, your possessions, your values (who and what you value in life) and self-esteem
  • Leo: Your identity, appearance, how others view you, autonomy and leadership.
  • Virgo: Healing, isolation, your subconscious mind/psychological issues, self-sabotage and hidden enemies, work you do in private/secret projects and closure/endings
  • Libra: your tribe - friends, groups you belong to and causes you support, your soul tribe and your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Scorpio: career, ambition, goals, success and status, ultimately your soul's legacy

Leo season: A (double!) date with destiny

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and I hope Cancer season is treating you well!

Next weekend the Sun will move into Leo for the first of two Leo New Moons, one of which will be a solar eclipse!

The Leo ruled parts of each of our charts (so any houses with Leo on the cusp, or any natal planets we have in Leo) are firmly under the cosmic spotlight over the next two lunar cycles.

Consider it a double date with destiny which will come to fruition over the next 18 months or so, through to January 2019.

I will be writing more on eclipse season towards the end of July so you can all be prepared but in the meantime I set out the below guide to Leo for each sign (read for your sun sign and your rising sign) so you can start thinking about these life areas and what you wish to manifest in them at next weekend's New Moon.

The Soulstrology New Moon blog will be up on Friday 21st July so you can read it carefully then and apply the Soulstrology consciousness to the Leo ruled parts of your chart.

We each have a date with destiny.....let's make it a great one!

SOULSTROLOGY LEO SEASON ZODIAC GUIDE

Taurus: - home - who, what and where you consider home, family, domestic life, the private/internal you

Gemini: - your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats including related projects, neighbors, your local community, siblings, short trips

Cancer: - your income, earnings, personal finances and possessions, your values - who and what you value in life and your self esteem.

Virgo: - healing and isolation, closure and endings, work you do behind the scenes or keep private, psychological matters and spirituality

Libra: - your tribe - friends, groups you belong to and causes you support, your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future

Scorpio: - status and success, career and ambition, your soul's legacy

Sagittarius: - travel, foreign places and people, spirituality, higher learning, teaching, publishing, legal matters

Capricorn: - joint finances and projects, merging and transformation, sex and 'death'

Aquarius: - partnerships and close one to one relationships of all types - platonic, professional and romantic

Pisces: - daily work, routine and lifestyle, health - mind/body and soul

Get thinking about these areas of life ruled by Leo in your chart and whether you are really enjoying and manifesting in them..because if you aren't, you have the most incredible cosmic windows of opportunity to create great changes!

Happy weekend

Love,

Ambi x

 

Soulstrology Zodiac guide to Full Moon in Capricorn July 8th 2017

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely members and happy nearly Full Moon in Capricorn!

Please read the Soulstrology Full Moon blog on the main site and then ask yourselves the questions set out there in relation to the areas of life ruled by both your sun sign and your rising sign (if you know it).

Also look at the opposing houses to your sun and rising sign and the life areas ruled by those houses as they have also been impacted by the Pluto in Capricorn transit by virtue of Pluto opposing those life areas (a tough transit), plus they will be highlighted at this Full Moon as the Sun is shining in those houses.

I suggest making a burn and release list after fully answering the questions in the blog releasing all that does not serve you or that is decaying and needs to be allowed to 'die' to make space for a beautiful rebirth and/or a sweet new beginning.

Aries: Career, ambition, career, success, status, the public you, your legacy

Taurus: Travel, foreign places and people, publishing, legal matters, spirituality and higher learning

Gemini: Joint finances (debts, loans, investments, inheritances) joint projects, merging and transformation

Cancer: Partnerships and close one to one relationships of all kinds (romantic/marriage, platonic and professional)

Leo: Daily work and routine, health - mind, body and soul

Virgo: Love/romance/dating, self-expression, creativity, hobbies, fun, children - yours or others

Libra: Domestic life and the domestic, private you. Family and home, who, what and where you consider home and your family

Scorpio: Your mind, communication and your 'voice' in all formats including any related projects, your local community, neighbors, siblings and short trips

Sagittarius: Your personal finances and income, your possessions and your values (who and what you truly value in life) and your self-esteem

Capricorn: your identity and appearance, the essence of who you are, your higher self

Aquarius: healing, the hidden - secrets you keep from others, work you do behind the scenes, psychological matters and spirituality, isolation and seclusion

Pisces: friends and groups you belong to and/or causes you support, your soul tribe, your hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.

Wishing you all a healing, transformative and soulfully powerful Full Moon.

Love,

Ambi x

Venus in Gemini: July 6th - August 1st 2017: The mind is the way to the heart

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and happy Thursday!

Today, Thursday 6th July 2017, Venus planet of love, peace, harmony, beauty, abundance and socializing moves into mutable air sign Gemini where she will stay until August 1st.

Look at where you have Gemini ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Gemini as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Gemini transit.

 

DO

  • Engage in mental foreplay Venus in Gemini is all about communication and the mind. There's nothing sexier than a good conversation! Write a love letter. Express your feelings and seduce your lover with your words (your choice whether this is via old fashioned letters or online)
  • Arrange a date night where you actually TALK We've all seen those couples (and may have even been them at times) who eat an entire meal at a restaurant barely exchanging a word. Over this transit bring the art of conversation back into your love life/relationship.
  • Single? Make sure to mingle! Over this transit consider online dating (before Mercury shadow sets in) go out locally (Gemini in natural zodiac rules our 'hood) and keeping your options open by multi dating. If you are not in an exclusive relationship then keep your options open which leads me nicely onto...
  • Variety is the spice of life Venus in Gemini loves to socialize and craves variety. We can each harness this energy and infuse it into our social lives. Catch up with different friends/groups and aim for different activities.  Go on a spontaneous get away. This transit is perfect to escape on either a romantic weekend away or a fun trip with friends.
  • Find your creative voice Whether its a book, a blog, a podcast, or some other medium, find your voice and express it or re-start a project which relates to your creative voice.
  • Duality in your work/finances Think about how you can embrace different sides of your persona in your work and finances. Whether a side job to create another income stream or pursuing a passion project which could turn into your dream job, the key is duality.

 

DON'T

  • Be flaky. The shadow of Venus in Gemini's desire for variety is to flake. Whether in social arrangements or with dating be mindful of being flaky.
  • Be all about small talk This transit can lead to us being somewhat superficial in our communications. Small talk has its time and place but be mindful of superficiality.
  • Equate monogamy with monotony. Venus in Gemini has a strong desire for stimulation and excitement in relationships which sometimes can lead to flitting from one relationship to another in search of that mental stimulation. Monogamy can provide this!
  • Commit to more than you can do The downside of the gift of the gab can be failing to deliver. Be mindful that you can walk your talk.
  • Be foolish in your pursuit of intelligence Sometimes this transit can lead to us trying to study or do something because we think it is the 'right' thing to do or it automatically makes us intellectually superior which of course is untrue and soul defeating!
  • Try do to it all Trying to do or have it all is unrealistic and self-defeatist. Pursue duality and adventure but with mindful realism and boundaries.

 

Gemini and Gemini risings this next month is your time to enjoy what Soulstrology likes to call the Venus filter! It gives a great glow!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Gemini.

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus - think love, harmony, creativity, abundance!

 

SOULSTROLOGY VENUS IN GEMINI GUIDE

Alchemy Member Gift

Ambi Sitham

Hello, lovely ones and happy Monday!

As you will know if you're signed up to my newsletter I'm on vacation until July 5th.

July's cosmic update will still post on the main site so please check there for the lowdown on what the cosmos has in store next month.

I will be back with Member posts next week to fill you in on the Venus in Gemini transit which starts on July 6th as well as fill you in on the intense Full Moon in Capricorn on July 8th.

As this is a very powerful Full Moon (due to the ongoing Pluto in Capricorn transit transforming the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our charts/lives) I will be writing a detailed a Member guide for each sign and how best they can work with this Full Moon.

In the meantime this week I wanted to gift each of you lovely members a little something special to help you on your path of alchemy....

As some of you may know, just over a year ago I took a long journey involving two planes, one car and a ferry to travel to a beautiful little island in Washington State called Lummi Island where I made my first set of Alchemy products.

There are three different sprays, Release, Manifest, and Connect.

Each aromatherapy spray contains flower essences and essential oils and is energetically charged in a crystal grid in the most magical forest (eco-certified, protected wildlife sanctuary) and then Reiki and sound charged by yours truly in Los Angeles.

They are such powerful, special sprays which I use myself and on clients and will be selling on my site.

Having sold out of them fairly quickly I have just had word that my next batch of sprays is about to arrive which is super exciting!

I wanted to gift each member a spray to say thank you for becoming part of the Soulstrology community and I hope your spray of choice will help you on your path of alchemy.

You can read about each spray on the shop section of my site and then fill this form out with your choice of spray and a mailing address so I can send you your spray upon my return from holiday!

There are no strings attached to this gift other than I would ask you to consider sharing the love in some way by maybe giving someone else a gift.

Maybe you pick up someone else's coffee for them or you buy someone in need a bite to eat.

Maybe it isn't a monetary gift but somehow you gift your time or love.

Maybe it's just going out of your way in some small way to make a positive difference to another person or for your community.

Either way, I think of my sprays as scents for the soul and so I would also like to feel that as each of you benefit from this gift, there is also a ripple effect.

I know the power in sharing our good fortune.

The more we receive, the more we share.

The more we share, the more we receive!

It's a beautiful cycle so thank you for letting me share with you and I hope you share the love!

Soulstrology zodiac guide to Cancer season and the Summer Solstice

Hello lovely ones and happy Monday!

In cosmic news it's almost the end of airy Gemini season and the start of Cancer season.

This Wednesday June 21st is the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, with the most light, which officially marks the start of Summer.

The Solstice, or SOULSTICE as I like to call it, is a wonderful time for us to connect to the energetic light available and infuse that into our lives.

I suggest a simple ritual to connect to the energies of the Soulstice.

  • Connect to the sun and physical light. A sunrise or sunset meditation outdoors is a great idea
  • Connect to water. The Sun moves into the Cancer ruled part of the zodiac at the Soulstice so it's a great time to connect to the intuitive watery energies of Cancer. Either visit a natural body of water (and if appropriate swim in it!) or enjoy a salt bath
  • Celebrate the energy of heat and fire and channel it to help you on your process. Write a release list of the energies you would like to go up in flames and dissipate
  • Create an alter of light. Light a candle (or several) and write down your wishes for the next three months, to come to fruition by the Autumn Equinox marking the end of Summer.

This Friday June 23rd at 7.30pm PST we have a gorgeous New Moon in Cancer.

As always I will write a blog on the New Moon which will be available on the main homepage of the site but for you lovely members I wanted to include a guide to the areas of life which will be highlighted during Cancer season and which you should focus on to set your New Moon intentions this Friday.

Remember to read for your sun sign and your rising sign.

  • Aries - your family, home, domestic life, the private/inner you, your emotions
  • Taurus - your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats (and related projects) siblings, neighbors and your local community,
  • Gemini - your personal income and finances, your values (who and what you value) your self-esteem
  • Cancer - your identity, your appearance, how others view you, your autonomy
  • Leo - your subconscious mind, healing, closure and endings, secrets and work you do behind the scenes
  • Virgo - your tribe, friendships, groups you belong to and causes you support, your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Libra - your career, ambition, success and status, your legacy
  • Scorpio -higher learning/education, spirituality, publishing, foreign people and places, travel and legal matters
  • Sagittarius - joint projects and joint finances, merging and transformation
  • Capricorn - close partnerships of all types, platonic, professional and romantic
  • Aquarius - your daily routine, work and service to others, health - mind/body/soul
  • Pisces - love/romance/dating, creativity, self-expression, having fun, hobbies, children (yours and others) including your inner child

Wishing you all a wonderful week and a light infused Soulstice and start to Cancer season!

Ask Ambi: Mars Return

Ambi Sitham

Welcome to Ask Ambi - my new cosmic coaching agony aunt column.

Feel free to write to me at ask@alchemywithambi.com or reach out on Instagram or Facebook with a question about astrology, your unique natal chart, or a challenge you are going through.

I will write back via a blog which will be shared on the Membership section because the answer to your question, or the SOULUTION to your challenge, may well help others!

Please note that in certain blog responses (largely those dealing with very personal issues) I will often edit questions or omit details so as to protect the privacy of those who are seeking help.

Onwards to the first Ask Ambi Q+A which was a response to an Instagram post about the current Mars in Cancer transit.

 

I have my Mars in Cancer! What does this mean?

 

You are experiencing your Mars return!

In astrology the return of a planet is when a transiting planet reaches the same position in the zodiac (in terms of both sign and degree) as it holds in our natal chart.

The significance of each these planetary returns differs and I will probably explain more about these in future blog posts.

We all hear about our Saturn return because Saturn is a slower moving planet and its return, particularly the first return, is very much a rite of passage into adulthood.

No-one (whether they believe in astrology or not!) is immune to the impact of Saturn return!

However Saturn is not the only significant planetary return.

The return of Mars is powerful and will impact you for the next two years (as this is roughly how long Mars takes to transit the entire zodiac, dependent on his retrograde periods which occur approximately every two years).

Mars is the planet of energy, ambition and drive (and also rules sexual desire) so when you experience your Mars return it is likely your energy levels will be higher than normal.

This is an excellent time to plan for the future. What do you want?  What do you truly desire, lust after even? (can be a person, place, job, lifestyle, etc)

See where Mars is in your natal chart and therefore what life areas are governed by this house as this will show you which life areas are being highlighted by Mars energies over the next two years and where you are planting seeds for success.

Also, look at your solar chart (based on your sun sign).

Which house does Aries (and therefore Mars) rule in your solar chart?

As those life areas are also in the cosmic spotlight you ought to be thinking about what you wish to achieve in them over the next two years.

Notice events occurring around the time of your Mars return and the energies you are experiencing.

This will give you insights into the new endeavors that you will start in the next two years and what you will manifest.

Read my previous blog about the Mars in Cancer do’s and don’ts carefully and make sure you are harnessing the light of Mars in Cancer and steering clear of the shadows.

If you really wanted to go deeper in studying your Mars return you can also cast a Mars return chart which is very similar to a birth chart but shows you the exact astrological energies at the time of your unique Mars return.

Analysis of the various aspects made in the Mars return chart can help you identify key themes and dates for the next two year period in terms of the areas of life governed by Mars.

But this is isn’t a necessity and especially if you are a newbie to the cosmos, keeping things simple is best!

So in summary, look at your chart, see where Mars is placed, think about the life areas being highlighted (both in your natal and solar chart) and think about what you want (really really want a la Spice Girls!) and infuse your desires with the energy and light of Mars to manifest them.

I am wishing you a soulfully powerful, energized Mars return which brings you the fruition of your desires for your highest good and the greater good of all.

Love,

Ambi x

 

 

 

 

Venus in Taurus: June 7th - July 6th 2017: Lasting love

Ambi Sitham

The words of Taurus Audrey Hepburn who actually married twice in the end

The words of Taurus Audrey Hepburn who actually married twice in the end

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

Today, Wednesday 7th June 2017, Venus planet of love, peace, harmony, beauty, abundance and socializing moves into fixed earth sign Taurus where she will stay until July 6th.

After Venus's retrograde earlier this this year and a long time in Pisces and Aries we are all probably very ready for the planet of love to move into another part of the zodiac.

As many of you will probably know by now, Venus rules Taurus and Libra.

Soulstrology says it follows that Venus is very much 'at home' in Taurus meaning we should all feel the positive impact of this transit in the Taurus ruled part of our lives.

Look at where you have Taurus on the cusp of your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Taurus as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Taurus transit.

 

DO

  • Indulge the five senses. Venus in Taurus is all about pleasure, from the simple to the more exquisite sensual pleasures.
  • Be grounded and peaceful and infuse these energies into your life. Venus in Taurus lends to natural contentment. Make the most of the next month and being more easily content
  • Consider commitment. This transit encourages us to be more committed in our love affairs. If you're single, commit to having a better relationship with yourself!
  • Get your finances in order. Venus in Taurus values stability. Start a savings plan, pay off debt, etc
  • Shop for substance with consciousness. Venus in Taurus doesn't collect tat. Look for quality, practical items which will last (they can also be aesthetically pleasing! the two themes aren't mutually exclusive!)
  • Socialize through food. The way to (many a) heart is through the belly. Cook for your loved ones, entertain at home or try a new restaurant

 

DON'T

  • Overindulge. The danger of satiating the five senses is to overdo it. Gluttony is a shadow of Venus in Taurus so be mindful of this
  • Be lazy. The shadow of natural contentment and harmony is to just kick back and well, be a bit lazy. Watch for the balance between being peaceful and grounded and downright lazy!
  • Overspend. This transit helps us see the beauty in tangible goods. This can result in wanting to purchase everything that catches our eye. Try and be grounded in your purchases. None of us need everything we want!
  • Be a superficial social butterfly. Sometimes when we are overly sociable we forget about substance in our connections and our conversations. Be soulfully sociable.
  • Be possessive. This transit encourages commitment but there is a difference between commitment and clinging. Don't treat your partner like a possession.
  • Hold onto things past their sell by date. Somethings have an expiration date and serve a purpose or season of our life. Learn to let go of the people, possessions and places that fall into this category.

 

Taurus and Taurus risings this next month is your time to enjoy what Soulstrology likes to call the Venus filter! It gives a great glow!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Taurus.

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus, think love, harmony, abundance!

 

SOULSTROLOGY VENUS IN TAURUS GUIDE

 

  • Aries - your income, your possessions, your personal finances, your values (who and what you value in life) and your self-esteem
  • Taurus - your identity, the very essence of who you are, how people see you
  • Gemini - healing, secrets, your subconscious mind, secret projects, what you keep hidden (including the hidden you) endings and completion
  • Cancer - your tribe, friendships, groups you belong to, causes you support, your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Leo - success, career, ambition, your status, your public legacy
  • Virgo - spirituality/religion/higher learning, legal matters, travel, foreign places and people
  • Libra - joint projects and finances, merging, transformation that comes through merging
  • Scorpio - close partnerships of all kinds, platonic, professional and romantic (marriage too)
  • Sagittarius - your daily lifestyle/routine, service and work, your health - mind/body/soul
  • Capricorn - love and romance, children - yours and/or others, fun, self-expression and creativity
  • Aquarius - home - who what and where you consider home, family, your childhood, domestic life
  • Pisces - your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats and related projects, short trips, your siblings, neighbors and local community

 

 

Mars in Cancer June 5th - July 21st 2017: The energy of emotion

Ambi Sitham

Mars the planet of energy, action and desire.

For the first time in two years, today June 5th the fiery red planet moves into Cancer where it will remain until July 21st.

Cancer/Cancer risings will feel the impact of this transit and the Martian energy the most.

Whatever your zodiac sign each of us has either houses and/or planets in Cancer so we will all feel the effect of this Mars transit in certain areas of our life.

In traditional astrology Mars is said to be 'in detriment' in Cancer.

This is because the energies are so contradictory.

Mars is autonomy and empowerment, having the confidence and courage to take action and go after our goals. 

It's a fiery, feisty energy that also has a shadow (arrogance, aggression, conflict).

Cancer on the other hand has a much more gentle, emotional energy.

The watery sign governs the past, our childhood, family, mother and our needs and emotions.

It is sensitive and nurturing and tends to be cautious in all pursuits, favoring security over 'success'.

The fire and energy of Mars is said to be dampened by Cancer's crab like, sideways crawling and (often overly) sensitive energies.

Whilst Mars traditionally charges ahead with confidence and courage, Cancer often crawls from side to side, taking far longer to get to where it needs to go, occasionally crawling back in it's shell when it's feelings have been hurt or it gets scared.

Soulstrology says that whilst this is not the easiest of transits each of us can harness these energies for our highest good. 

In order to do so we need to understand the energy of emotion and how to harness them properly.

DO's

  • Use your intuition as your guide. Connect to your higher self, listen to your gut and let it guide you
  • Take action. Particularly regarding your home and/or family (and the Cancer ruled parts of your unique chart)
  • Revisit the past. Sometimes we need to go backwards before we can move forwards. Past relationships and/or situations may need to be revisited (and the emotions around them felt and healed).
  • Connect with your inner nurturer. Regardless of our gender this is a time to connect to the divine mother energy that resides in each of us and to infuse that nurturing energy into our lives, relationships and goals.
  • Fight for what you believe in. Channel your most passionate emotions (Cancer) into constructive action (Mars).

 

DON'TS

  • Passive aggressive behavior. This comes from a lack of confidence and courage to tackle what needs to be dealt with directly. It is self defeatist and unhelpful in (all) relationships.
  • Drown in your emotions. We have to feel to heal but this does not mean wallowing in emotions. No pity party allowed!
  • Moodiness/irritability. Such feelings arise from not taking full responsibility for our emotions, processing them and transforming that energy. If you feel off, you're off. Get aligned!
  • Procrastinate or move sideways. Avoid this Cancer shadow which will simply keep you stuck and frustrated.
  • Allow your heart to rule your head. There are times over this transit when it is best to be unemotional, logical and practical (adopting the traits of Cancer's zodiac opposite Capricorn)

 

SOULSTROLOGY GUIDE

Below is a Soulstrology guide for each sign (read for both your sun and rising sign) identifying the life areas that will be experiencing this Mars in Cancer transit.

Try and apply the do's and don'ts as set out above to these life areas over this cosmic window.

  • Aries: Your childhood, family, home (past present and future) and domestic life, emotions.
  • Taurus: Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats (and related projects), siblings, neighbors, your local community and short trips
  • Gemini: Your income/personal finances and possessions, your values (who and what you value) and your self-esteem
  • Cancer: Your identity, autonomy and personal goals
  • Leo: Your subconscious mind, healing, work you do behind the scenes, secret projects, the hidden you
  • Virgo: Your tribe - friendships, groups you belong to, causes you support. Your hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Libra: Your career/status and success. Ambition, goals and the public you.
  • Scorpio: Your personal spirituality/religion, higher learning/education, legal matters, travel, long distance trips, publishing
  • Sagittarius: Your joint projects and finances, merging with others in all ways and transformation
  • Capricorn: Your close partnerships of all sorts, platonic, professional and romantic
  • Aquarius: Your day to day routine/lifestyle, work and service to others, your health-mind/body and soul
  • Pisces: Love and romance, children (yours, others and your inner child), fun, hobbies, self-expression and creativity

Soulstrology guide to Gemini season 2017

Ambi Sitham

Welcome to Gemini season 2017!

Every lunar month we will delve into the traits of the current zodiac season which will differ slightly according to the other cosmic aspects at play (which naturally shifts monthly and annually).

Gemini season officially started on May 21st when the Sun moved into the Gemini zone of the zodiac and will last until Thursday June 22nd.

We had a gorgeous New Moon in Gemini last Thursday 25th May.

As with all New Moons, the most potent cosmic window is the day of.

However the following seven days are still a very powerful time in which to harness the energies to sow the seeds for your desires.

So if you haven't set your intentions yet, don't fret, there is still plenty of time!

So, what to expect from Gemini season?

First off, if you are either a Gemini sun sign or a Gemini rising, then this is YOUR season with the cosmic spotlight shining brightly on you.

But regardless of your sign, the cosmic spotlight is shining somewhere in your chart.

Go online and cast a free chart to see which areas of life Gemini rules in your chart and are highlighted by the cosmos this next month.

Turning now to Gemini, a mutable air sign ruled by Mercury.

This sign has a changeable, dual nature which may infuse the life areas ruled by Gemini in our charts.

Mercury's energies and themes are communication, the mind and travel which is reflected in Gemini's chatty and sociable nature, love of travel and a mind that often works overtime!

As Mercury is now back to fine form as he is finally out of retro-shade we can expect these themes to run smoothly over this particular Gemini season, or at least, we are unable to blame Mercury for any mishaps in these areas of life and instead have to take responsibility ourselves!

So let's get down to Soulstrology's DO's and DONT's for this next Gemini lunation which reflects the light and shadow of this sign.

 

DO

 

  • Plan short trips/travel. Go for that weekend get-away, day trip or grab that last minute holiday deal.
  • Feed your mind. Nourish it. Read, learn, take a course, try a treatment for the mind (I am delving into hypnosis!)
  • Socialize. Connect with siblings, your neighbors and local community
  • Write. Whether it is private journaling, or public blogging, or starting to sketch the ideas of a book you've always wanted to write. Get pen to paper or hands to keyboard and start writing
  • Communicate. Pick up the phone to an old friend/relative you've not been in touch with for a while, send an 'I'm thinking of you card', have a conversation that is overdue, express how you're feeling.
  • Explore and embrace your unique duality. Try something you've always wanted to do or indulge that part of yourself which you perhaps need to acknowledge. Embrace and integrate the different facets of your personality into your life.

 

DON'T

 

  • Be superficial or flaky. Mean what you say, say what you mean and let this be reflected in your actions.
  • Gossip. Even if it seems relatively harmless. Words have energy and gossip is harmful to the person being talked about, the person doing the gossiping and the person listening.
  • Overthink or let your mind spin out. Be mindful, rather than having a mind that is full.
  • Be indecisive and drive yourself and others mad in the process (comes from overthinking)
  • Be Jekyll and Hyde or two-faced. Duality can be a great thing, but being a split personality, or two faced and insincere is not!
  • Be lazy. If you're going to do something do it properly with full attention. If something needs to be done, get to it, don't procrastinate and/or prevaricate!

 

Saturn, the stern teacher....

Soulstrology tells us that the Gemini ruled parts of our charts (and therefore lives) have had cosmic life coach Saturn 'in opposition' at some point since December 2014 when he entered into Gemini's opposite sign Sagittarius. (Note it may be that you have yet to experience this depending on the exact degrees and angles in your unique chart but either way it will happen by the end of 2017 when Saturn departs Sagittarius).

With stern Saturn sitting opposite the Gemini ruled parts of our charts we would have felt that pressure of the polarity between those two opposing life areas.

E.g. for some people this could be their rising sign and their seventh house of committed partnerships so it could be the tension between their autonomy and the compromise of partnership.

For others, it could be that the fourth house (home/family/domestic life) and their tenth house (career, status, success) themes have clashed and there has been a tough re-balancing act in these two areas of life.

Either way this energy (and again, once you work out the Gemini and Sagittarius ruled parts of your chart you will easily be able to establish where this cosmic duel has been taking place) will come to a head this month with the annual Sun/Saturn opposition.

This takes place on June 15th 2017.

Soulstrology tells us that what happens either on, or around this day, shows us the degree to which we have learned Saturn's lessons and done his homework!

If you feel restricted, limited, frustrated or sad around this day then know that it is Saturn and his karmic lessons. Never fear, you still have plenty of time to integrate his lessons and reap the rewards by the end of the year!

It may be that something comes to fruition at this time, that there is structure and stability and success. As always, whatever happens is dependent upon your unique chart (and other transits you are experiencing) the unique circumstances of your life and your soul's journey.

Remember, the stars impel but they do not compel!

Hoping you've all had a great start to Gemini season and wishing you a mindful, magical rest of this lunation where you step out of the shadows of this sign to embrace its light.

Love,

Ambi x

Welcome to Soulstrology!

Ambi Sitham

magic clap your hands

Hi everyone and welcome to the new Soulstrology general membership!

I have wanted to set this up for nearly two years now, however, the combination of a heavy workload/schedule and lack of technical prowess thwarted my desires…

But I am a believer in cosmic divine timing over my timing, so here we are, finally live and up and running, woohoo!

I wanted to write a little welcome note so that you know what to expect from the membership.

Most importantly and the foundation of all I do is my desire is to help others to help themselves.

Soulstrology is mind/body/soul cosmic coaching which can help you create alchemy in your own life.

And it’s a fun journey.

I am offering a complimentary trial period.  

Consider it a gift from the cosmos, and me!

If (which I hope!) you enjoy and benefit from it then after the trial period is over you can join as a monthly member for $11.11.  

Lastly, what should you expect in terms of content?

I will start off posting weekly blogs which will range from educational (simplifying Soulstrology so you can easily understand and apply it in your own life) to answering reader questions via Ask Ambi (as I have done on That’s So Retrograde before) and audio content - think mantras, meditations and more!

I may even introduce Soulstrology Scopes come Fall but for now, I am just starting slow and building (that’s my practical grounded Virgo rising, Taurus moon tempering my let’s do it all NOW Sagittarius sun)!

I will still be writing and sharing my usual new and full moon blogs on my site so even if you choose not to join Soulstrology in the future you can still access the monthly Cosmic Updates.

As I have been a busy bee in all areas you can expect the first Soulstrology Member post to go live early next week (post-Memorial Day) but for now, I hope you enjoy a little manifesting meditation I recorded last summer during the Arizona summer storms.

Happy New Moon and a big cosmic welcome!

Love,
Ambi x
