Venus in Aries: April 21 - May 15 2019

Ambi Sitham

Venus in Aries.png

Hello lovely ones and welcome to Taurus season!

Woohoo, I for one am glad that Aries season is over. Each zodiac season resonates differently with me and helps me to work with different themes (the essence of Soulstrology!) and I always find Aries season powerful, yet also somewhat exhausting. I welcome Taurus season with open arms as such a grounded, welcome relief after a hectic few weeks. Probably something to do with my Taurus moon

But anyway, I digress.

Aries season may be over but tomorrow Venus, planet of beauty, harmony, socializing, creativity and abundance moves out of Pisces and into Aries, bringing with her a shift in energy.

The wonderful Lexie Rollet contributed this piece on the upcoming Venus in Aries transit and shares insights for each zodiac sign.

I hope you enjoy!

Love,

VENUS IN ARIES APRIL 21 - MAY 15 2019

You know, this Cancer Sun and Capricorn stellium girl has a difficult time with Aries energy. Can anyone else relate to this? Maybe it’s not necessarily the Aries energy you don’t vibe with, but perhaps some other sign. For me, the quick action, display of passion without apology, and extremely impulsive behavior that Aries has gets me very anxious and makes me feel like I have no control.

 

Now, you could’ve read that and thought, “I don’t see anything wrong with what you just explained about Aries.”

 

You’re right! There’s nothing “wrong” with Aries (or any of the signs). But we all feel their energy differently. So just like there’s nothing “wrong” with a sign, there’s also nothing “wrong” with not vibing with a sign.

 

Going into this season of Venus being in Aries from April 21st to May 15th, will be a bit like what I just explained, but just applied to love. Even talking about myself and reminding you that feeling differently isn’t wrong is an expression of Venus in Aries. An explanation:

 

Aries, the Sign of Self

 

When talking about the love planet, it’s important to take note of the sign it’s in and what that sign typically stands for. We can get more in depth with this but on the basic level, Aries’ home is the first house of self, so when Venus is here, we will feel the energy pulling us to show ourselves how much we love ourselves. Whether you’re coupled or not, this would be a great time to take yourself on a date and reconnect with your passions and genuine interests. And I really mean the word “passion”. Something quite often forgotten about Aries is how passionate it really is. It’s this passion that inspires the rest of the typical Aries behavior and ultimately what motivates an Aries more than anything.

 

If the Aries energy gets out of balance, it could fall into the trap of thinking that only their ideas, passions, and loves are the “right” ones. Personally, I love Scorpio energy! Maybe to my detriment sometimes, but I love it! However, this does not mean that I cut anyone out of my life that posts a judgemental meme about Scorpio on social media.

 

This is also true for you. While you’re taking advantage of the Venus in Aries energy and getting reconnected to your passionate motivation, there will be people that might oppose you on it. This can obviously happen at any time in the year but it’s during this transit that you might feel inclined to have a harsh reaction to them. Remember, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and their opinion doesn’t have to impact you and your goals. Just respectfully agree to disagree and move on. No need to argue, fight, get down on yourself, or cut that person out.

 

Now, let’s have a look at the Aries-ruled area of your chart to discover which area of your life where you could stand to reconnected with your passions. (And yes, I’ll touch on love for you, too.)

 

ARIES/ARIES RISING: This transit is DEFINITELY about getting reconnected with the love you have for yourself as Venus is now in your house of self. Use this time to infuse some beauty into your goals or passions. You might find that more people are drawn to you during this time, almost like you’re magnetic. Just make sure you don’t let it all go to your head AND just be aware of who you’re giving your attention to. There could be many options in front of you but make sure you’re being consistent with your current relationship status.

 

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING: Get reconnected with your spiritual loves. Venus is in your twelfth house of spirituality and healing. You could feel slightly more reserved during this time but it’s for a very valuable reason. Follow the energy to get deep into your beliefs, maybe even address some trauma you might have. This would be a great time to treat yourself with a new self-care routine that gets you to open up to yourself.

 

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING: Well this should be a fun time!! With Venus in your eleventh house of community and friendship, you’ll most likely get a healthy dose of being around lots of people! As far as passions go, reconnect with a passion or idea you have that addresses the community at large. This might be charity work, an organized social group you’ve wanted to start, or a problem you want to solve that impacts many people. Just make sure you give attention to your closest loved ones as they might feel neglected.

CANCER/CANCER RISING: Venus is in your tenth house of career and public status until May 15th! There’s a higher likelihood that you could be in the public eye somehow (whatever that might mean for your current career). Definitely connect to your passions and see if it’s possible to monetize them. Maybe you can’t monetize them and that’s okay, but it’s worth checking into during this time. Just make sure to use this time to instill balance.

 

LEO/LEO RISING: Want to go on a trip? Now would be a spectacular time! Or great time to at least plan a dream vacay. Venus is in your travel and mental exploration house, giving you some inspiration in those areas. Was there a place your inner child has always wanted to travel to? Get dreamy about it now and see if it’s possible to make happen! Just don’t get so impulsive with it that you make a financial decision that you can’t actually handle.

 

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING: Oh boy. Venus is in your house of intimacy and joint ventures. Things are likely to get a bit steamy. You might find some opportunity from others, as well. The biggest word of caution is that the Aries energy could inspire you to just jump in on the first person or opportunity that SEEMS ideal. Just do your due diligence first before making any commitments.

 

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING: With Venus in your seventh house of partnerships, your one-to-one relationships (of all kinds) will probably be a grand focus. Use this opportunity to get really clear on boundaries and balance within these relationships. You may also want to reconnect with the shared passions you two hold together. Maybe it’s fallen off the radar lately. Romantically speaking, just be aware that you’re acting within your relationship status AND being selective of who to get involved with.

 

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING: Venus is in your sixth house of health and routine. Maybe get into the gym, or start hiking, or playing a sport, or anything that you might have been passionate about before OR anything you’ve always wanted to try. This time is all about establishing new routines that really fuel your fire and get you excited about life. In terms of love, make sure to pay attention to your closest loved ones as they might feel neglected now that you have a new workout habits.

 

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING: This is a fun one! Venus is in your house of creativity! Get creative! Whatever that means for you. Also, get out and play. Not that you have an issue doing this before, but maybe play with something new. Maybe pick up a new hobby you’ve been wanting to try? Make sure it’s just challenging enough to keep you interested, but not so challenging that you give up almost immediately.

 

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING: Venus is in your fourth house of home during this transit. There’s definitely components of infusing beauty and style into your home during this time. Maybe an ambitious home project you’ve been wanting to do. But this is also a time to establish some balance within the home if there hasn’t been as of late. Also, get connected to the passion you have within your home, especially the people that reside in it.

 

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING: Some beautiful language and charisma may be giving you a boost during this transit as Venus is in your communication house. This can come in handy during social activities, and maybe there might even be more of them for you. Love is definitely going to start in the mind for you. If someone isn’t holding your interest intellectually or giving you some powerful food for thought, just forget it.

 

PISCES/PISCES RISING: You’ll definitely want to use this time to get solid in your self-appreciation for this transit. Venus is giving you some beautiful motivation to fall in love with yourself again (or more!). This would also be a great time to get connected to your money. How do you make it? How do you manage it? What do you spend it on? How does your passion (or passions) tie into this? Can they be incorporated into your money? Just make sure to not overspend or impulsively spend.

 

Soulstrology Scopes Full Moon Libra April 2019

April Libra Full Moon.png

Happy Thursday/almost Full Moon!

Hopefully you will all have had an opportunity to read the Libra Full Moon blog.

If not, I recommend reading it in conjunction with your Soulstrology Scopes as I feel it will help fully work with the cosmic energies of this Libra Full Moon.

Below are the cosmic coaching questions, journal prompts and customized ritual for this powerful Libra Full Moon.

  1. Review the significant relationships in your life and make a list of anything you wish to release, heal and/or transform in those relationships.

  2. Reviewing the above list, make a list of what and how you are prepared to release, heal and/or transform about yourself and your relationship with yourself.

  3. Make a list of all you wish to celebrate about your most important relationships: challenges you have overcome, rocky territory you have safely navigated, chapters you have completed, new beginnings you are embracing. Make sure to include in this list all of the above in relation to the relationship with yourself.

  4. Review the Libra ruled parts of life in your unique chart (using the Soulstrology zodiac guide in the Libra Full Moon blog) and check in with yourself as to where you are at with these areas of life. What needs healing/releasing? What needs transforming? What new chapter would you like to embrace with regards to these areas of life? How are the relationships, in relation to these specific areas of life and what would you like to let go with regards to these relationships in order to have more of what you truly desire? Take notes accordingly.

  5. Once again reviewing the Libra ruled parts of life in your unique chart what would you like to celebrate in relation to these areas of life? What have you achieved and brought to celebratory completion? Take note.

  6. Listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath. My recommendation is the Pluto/Earth Soulstrology Soundbath which I have included below for your ease, but of course, please feel free to listen to any (and as many!) as you feel called to.

  7. After listening to the Soundbath journal on any new insights you may have received.

  8. Write up the first of two Libra Full Moon ritual lists. The first being a healing and releasing list. Use the responses to questions 1, 2 and 4 above. At the top of the list write the following wording (or something similar). "I release all of the below because it does not serve me or my highest good. By releasing the below I make space for new positive energy to come in and help manifest my heart’s desires, for my highest good and the greater good of all” Then list everything you want to release/heal. Burn this list and as always, as you watch the list go up in flames, visualize any negative energy leaving you or the situation you have detailed on your list.

  9. If you are able to, take a shower or bathe after the burning of your release list and visualize the water washing you physically and energetically clear of those negative energies.

  10. Write up the second of the Libra Full Moon ritual lists. This is a list you can write to your higher self, the universe/cosmos, G-d, the moon, whatever/whoever you feel comfortable writing it to. In this list detail everything you wish to celebrate at this New Moon (using the responses to questions 3 and 5 above as your guide). Also feel free to include anything else you wish to celebrate at this time. Light a candle and burn this list and as you watch the flames go up, allow yourself to visualize the flames as energetic gratitude that is going up into the heavens and cosmos and allow this gratitude to permeate your entire mind, body and soul. Feel it in your heart and every part of your being. Silently (or out loud, however feels good for you!) give thanks for all you have received, all you have manifested and all you will manifest.

  11. If you want to get really grounded after this then listen to the Earth Soulstrology Soundbath (again placed below for your ease of reference) and then celebrate! You have just performed a powerful ritual.

  12. Last but not least, check out your Soulstrology Libra Full Moon mantras and your channeled word for your sign (as always reading for both your Sun and Rising sign and you may find reading the two words together gives you a powerful message!)

Full Moon in Libra April 2019: Change is the only constant

Ambi Sitham

April2019fullmoon.png

Hello lovely ones! I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the last days of Aries season.

As I am sure you are aware we are approaching a Full Moon, the second consecutive Full Moon in Libra, which takes place this Friday April 19 at 4.17am PT (adjust as always for your timezone).

As you may recall, last month’s Libra Full Moon coincided with the Spring Equinox (for those of us in the northern hemisphere with our friends in the southern hemisphere enjoying the Fall Equinox).

March’s Libra Full Moon fell at zero degrees of Libra whereas Friday’s Libra Full Moon falls at 29 degrees of Libra.

Both the beginning and end degrees of any zodiac sign are known as the critical degrees as they are extra potent - if you imagine that zero degrees is the beginning of a sign represents the fullest expression and all the energies of that sign and then the end degree (29 degrees) is the end of that sign and represents the transition into another sign.

This means that cosmic events which take place at either of the critical degrees of any zodiac signs, are extra powerful windows of opportunity to work with but in turn can also feel extremely intense.

We must harness any intensity which we feel at this time as powerful energy to work with to make the most of the Soulstrology themes at play which we will dive into shortly.

Firstly, as always look carefully at where you have Libra ruling in your unique chart.

For a simple review, you can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to this Libra Full Moon which sets out the life areas being highlighted at this time.

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

If you know your chart well, do check where you may have any planets that might be hovering near the Sun at 29 degrees of Aries (use a four degree orb so anything around 25 degrees of Aries may get triggered and equally anything the other side of Aries, so 3 degrees of Taurus may also get triggered) and/or any planets hovering around 25 degrees of Libra and/or 3 degrees of Scorpio).

I know I mention other zodiac pairs above but that is because the Sun/Moon axis at this Full Moon takes place at the end degrees of both Aries and Libra and therefore even planets/points in our charts in the early degrees of the next signs (Taurus/Scorpio) can be triggered at this time and so it is important to note them as those planets/points in our charts may also be up for cosmic consideration at this Full Moon.

Onward to the Soulstrology theme of this Libra Full Moon: Change is the only constant.

In many ways this concept is the essence of Soulstrology.

That we are constantly riding different cosmic waves and themes of consciousness that ask us to change ourselves and change our lives.

That there are different seasons and chapters of life that celestial events will usher in.

The tougher, challenging aspects which push us to dig deep and do the harder internal work of transformation (hello certain Saturn, Pluto and Chiron aspects to our natal charts!) and then the more harmonious aspects which bring a sense of ease and flow, opportunity and luck (hello certain Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter and Venus aspects!) and then of course the ones that pull the rug out from underneath us and turn our worlds (and indeed the beloved world which we all inhabit) upside down (hello Uranus, Pluto, Chiron aspects!).

The point is, as my wise Mum says, there are good times and bad times, but no time ever lasts, everyone experiences highs and lows and different seasons and chapters of life.

This can be so unsettling to us human beings because our human selves (our egos) want the security of stability and certainty. I think it is fair to say that most of us inherently dislike change and struggle with the currents of change, sometimes feeling as though we are drowning.

But change IS the only constant.

And once we wrap our heads around this concept and ACCEPT it as the natural law and order of the universe, we will not only find a certain degree of peace through that acceptance/surrender but will also find we can work with the currents of change for what they are.

I say ‘for what they are’ because each cosmic theme of change will bring different energies (as referred to above) and although some may not be to our preference, that does not mean that they do not serve a powerful purpose in our lives.

But turning now to this Full Moon and the concept of change being the only constant in relation to the Libra ruled parts of our lives.

As you all probably know by now, in the natural zodiac, which applies to each of us, Libra rules partnerships of all kinds - platonic, professional and romantic.

Our important relationships/partnerships are therefore in the cosmic spotlight at this time, including of course, the most important relationship of all - our relationship with ourselves.

We must understand and accept that all relationships, no matter how close, loving or important, regardless of what role they play in our lives, are subject to change.

In some cases this change can even mean the end of a relationship once it has reached its natural conclusion and served its karmic role in our soul’s journey and our evolution in this lifetime.

In other long term relationships, of any type, we must expect that they will be subject to change and different seasons bringing different energies; in some bringing challenges, in others bringing lightness and luck.

And of course we experience different seasons in the relationships with ourselves.

Some seasons are like Fall and/or Winter in which we experience loss, death or decay, we feel the harshness of a seasonal climate which may seem bleak.

Other seasons will be like Spring and Summer where we see new parts of ourselves, and therefore our lives, beginning to blossom and flower.

Seasons in which we are able to shine fully and enjoy the light and warmth that season is bringing our way.

At this Libra Full Moon the cosmos is asking us to look carefully at our partnerships and to understand the season we are in, what this means and what this brings for us, or perhaps accept a season that is coming to an end, or embrace a new season which is around the corner (or in some cases perhaps begrudging or reluctantly acknowledging…).

If we can understand and accept that our most important relationships, just like our lives are similarly subject to the ebbing and flowing of the ocean’s tides and the waxing and waning of la luna, we can approach them with more objectivity, curiosity as opposed to fear, and acceptance as opposed to resistance.

In doing so we can grow enormously as individuals (the purpose of this entire spiritual path) and in turn as we grow, learn so much about ourselves and others. As we integrate these lessons, we align further with our higher selves and can of course receive more of the goodness that the cosmos has to offer us, aka manifest what is for our highest good.

It’s a win/win for us yet sometimes our egos/human selves really resist change in a way which means we are not flowing with the cosmic tides of change and stops us from growing.

We end up exerting a lot of energy to ultimately stay stuck, and often miserable…

Food for thought as we approach this Full Moon…and remember, we will be applying these themes to the Libra ruled parts of our unique charts in our cosmic coaching and ritual (more on this in your Soulstrology Scopes coming soon).

Turning now to the other planetary aspects taking place at this Full Moon and the themes of consciousness they create for us to work with.

Saturn sits once again (as he is for most of the month of April) side by side the South Node (past life, our comfort zone, karmic baggage) in opposition to the North Node (what we are supposed to reach for, what may be uncomfortable, but ultimately our destiny).

This aspect brings once again a karmic feel to events at this second Libra Full Moon, to our relationships and to what bubbles up in the lunar spotlight.

What we may experience at this time, whatever changes are being brought our way are karmic and destined in many ways.

For some this may be a beautiful new season and welcome change (stepping into that North node).

For others this may be a tougher season and challenging change (working with that South node and Saturn in order to step into the North node).

Pluto sits alongside Saturn and the South node bringing his powerful energies of transformation, destruction and rebirth.

There is undoubtedly an energy of endings for beginnings (which as you may recall was very much the theme of the last Libra Full Moon) and of transformation and a new season for each of us to embrace, meaning a season to also bid farewell to.

Either way the energies of Saturn, Pluto and the karmic energies of the nodes are providing a path to the next chapter and season of our lives and in turn we must do what is necessary to progress on that path, in other words work with the energies.

We need to be mindful of how we perceive things at this Full Moon due to Neptune in Pisces making a tense square aspect to both the Sun and Moon.

This can cause confusion and may make it difficult for us to truly see things (and ourselves and others) as they are.

As always with Full Moons I advise to let a couple of days or so (perhaps until after the weekend) to pass so that we can let the intensity of the lunar energies lessen and can see things a bit more clearly.

Thankfully Jupiter in Sagittarius imbues a sense of hope, optimism and where needed healing, through his sextile aspect to the Moon and trine to the Sun.

Both these aspects are helpful for us to work with at this time, to heal what may need to be healed and to have optimism that we can transform certain situations or work with the energies for our highest good.

And of course for some this may be about embracing the magic of miracles that a new season is bringing and celebrating as Full Moons are also about events coming to celebratory completion!

Jupiter also makes a square to Venus in Pisces.

This adds to the feel good factor which may help alleviate some of the typical Full Moon feels and for some add to the goodness that is experienced at this time.

Venus makes a lovely semi-sextile aspect to the Moon in Libra bringing some of those more peaceful, harmonious, loving energies that we must aim to tap into at this Full Moon.

I hope that these aspects reassure you that this Full Moon is far from ‘bad’, even if intense. And equally that it offers us a powerful opportunity to make changes and/or to accept changes and make the most of the season we find ourselves in.

More to come with your Soulstrology Scopes, cosmic coaching, mantra and ritual but for now, let the contents of this blog sit with you, digest it and allow yourself to note what thoughts come to mind, and perhaps review the Libra ruled parts of each of your unique charts to think about those areas which la luna will be shining her spotlight on.

More coming soon….

Love,

Jupiter in Sagittarius November 2018 – December 2019: Time to get lucky

Ambi Sitham

jupinsag.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost weekend!

Much to celebrate in the cosmos as this week, because just after that Scorpio New Moon, planetary benefic and cosmic miracle maker Jupiter moved into Sagittarius where he will be for the next thirteen months!

Jupiter rules Sagittarius so he is at home in this position meaning he is at his most potent and powerful and we will feel his energies at their most powerful for the next 13 months as he moves through the Sagittarius ruled part of the zodiac.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius risings, this is a golden year ahead for you as Jupiter will transit your sun sign (the essence of who you are) and your rising sign (your identity, appearance, personal autonomy, how others view you).

But fear not, regardless of our zodiac sign, we are all going to get lucky in certain areas of our lives.

To see where this transit is taking place in your lives, check the Soulstrology zodiac guide below and read for both your Sun and Rising sign to see which areas Sagittarius rules in your chart.

Also, don’t forget to look at what, if any, planets you have in Sagittarius.

Those planets will also be getting a major boost from this Jupiter in Sagittarius transit too, so depending on the life areas and themes governed by those specific planets you will be able to tell what kind of energies to expect once Jupiter in Sag activates those planets!

Remember too that the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in the natural zodiac (religion, spirituality, philosophy, higher education, legal matters, foreigners, foreign people, places, travel, publishing) which applies to each of us, will also be getting a boost from good old Jupiter.

Now there is a lot to say about the specific aspects Jupiter in Sagittarius will be making to other planets next year and how best we can therefore each work with his transit and I will be diving much deeper into that in time to come.

But for now, I want you to review the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in your chart.

Look and see what you have manifested in these life areas so far, and importantly what you wish to manifest in them.

Look also to see what might need healing in those life areas too.

Remember healing makes space for us to manifest and receive and as much as Jupiter is a great miracle maker, people often overlook the fact that he is also a powerful healer.

Perhaps for you, or a loved one, the miracle next year is healing.

And perhaps that healing makes space for manifesting in time to come…

Next, think about how you can infuse the traits of Jupiter/Sagittarius into the life areas which Jupiter in Sag will be transiting.

By being like the thing we wish to have, we align with it and we can more effortlessly create what it is we desire.

Below are some of the (positive, as opposed to shadow!) traits and themes of Jupiter/Sagittarius.

  • Expansion.

  • Expansion of the mind and on the physical plane.

  • Can do mindset

  • Glass half full attitude

  • Optimism

  • Faith

  • Trust

  • Miracle mindset

  • Abundance mindset

  • Wealth

  • Compassion

  • Generosity

  • Spiritual mindset

  • Philosophical attitude

  • Bigger picture attitude

When reviewing the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in your unique chart ask yourself to what degree (if at all) you are adopting these traits in the Sagittarius ruled parts of your life (and indeed, in life in general).

In these beginning stages of this transit aim to adopt these traits and infuse these energies into your life and specifically the Sag ruled parts of life.

Maybe listen to the Soulstrology Jupiter Soundbath (link below for your ease) as you do this cosmic coaching for yourself so that the sounds and vibrations of Jupiter himself can help you on an energetic level to start this transit off on the right note.

It’s time to get lucky, so let’s expect miracles, for ourselves and our beloved world.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and will be back next week with more cosmic updates.

Love,

Ambi x

Jupiter Retrograde: April 10 - August 11

Ambi Sitham

Jupiter Retrograde.png

Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday :)

I hope this finds you all well and enjoying this new lunar cycle and Aries season…

Tomorrow, April 10 sees Jupiter turn retrograde as he does every year for around four months.

He begins his retrograde at 24 degrees of Sagittarius and ends his retrograde at 14 degrees of Sagittarius. Look out for where you have Sagittarius ruling your unique chart to see the life areas being impacted by this retrograde.

The Soulstrology Jupiter in retrograde zodiac guide below to help you with that, just read as always for your sun and rising sign.

If you want to be more specific then check where you have between 14 and 24 degrees of Sagittarius falling exactly in your chart as well as noticing any planets between 12 and 26 degrees of Sagittarius as they are near enough to the retrograde and direct motions to be impacted by this retrograde too.

Now, as I may have already mentioned in the April cosmic update, Jupiter’s retrograde (along with the other retrogrades of this month) is not to be feared but rather to be embraced.

Think of it like this, Jupiter is the great healer and cosmic benefic. He brings healing to areas of our lives, he brings a feeling of optimism, expansion and often just plain old good luck.

And sometimes major miracles….especially in Sagittarius where he is ‘at home’ (as he rules Sagittarius) and therefore his energies are extra potent.

For all of us, Sagittarius rules somewhere in our charts and thus certain life areas which have been benefiting from Jupiter since last November 2018 and will continue to benefit through to December 2019.

This transit, as with every Jupiter transit, sets us up for a new season in the life areas receiving Jupiter’s energies for the next eleven years.

He will next return to Sagittarius in October 2030 when he will once again bring his energies with him to the Sagittarius ruled parts of our charts/lives.

If you haven’t already (if you are a newer Member) then please read the Jupiter in Sagittarius post from last November 2018.

If you have read it, then please perhaps re-read it to remind yourself of the cosmic energies and therefore the energies that this transit is bringing our way.

So what next? What do we do in this retrograde?

Well, as you know unlike Mercury this isn’t a three week retrograde with lessons crammed into a short period of time.

And actually, unlike Mercury’s retrograde which can feel very discombobulating and almost at times feel like a punishment, Jupiter’s retrograde is giving us the chance to REDO miracles in an area of our lives.

Although the retrograde realizations, shifts and magic may unfold more slowly over the next four months, at the outset of the retrograde we have an amazing opportunity to REVIEW how Jupiter in Sagittarius has treated us so far, how much we have harnessed the energies of this very powerful transit and how we can perhaps get even more out of this transit as well as what we want another chance at ‘redoing’.

So with this in mind, below are some cosmic coaching questions and journal prompts.

Please note that some of these are general life questions to ask yourselves and some are specifically in relation to the Sagittarius ruled parts of your chart/life.

  1. Look back between last November 2018 and today, April 2019. Do you feel you have become more optimistic in this time? Do you have more faith? Do you see the glass more as half full rather than half empty? Are you more generous/compassionate? How has your personal spirituality developed and progressed over this time? Remember there are no right or wrong answers, just an opportunity to review and reset but the idea is that we want to see if across the board in our lives, we have adopted the light of Jupiter in Sagittarius.

  2. Review the Sagittarius ruled parts of your charts/lives (see Soulstrology zodiac guide below).

    Ask yourself, what if any healing has taken place in regards to these areas of life? What expansion has occurred? Have any miracles taken place -small or ‘large’ miracles are miracles so don’t forget to count all and any!

  3. Having answered the above question, ask yourself what else you would like to experience in these life areas (and indeed in life across the board) in the remainder of the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit? What healing, expansion, miracles?

  4. Having answered the above question, next ask yourself what you are prepared to DO and how you are prepared to BE a la Jupiter in Sagittarius in your life generally and in these specific life areas? What I mean by this is that if you want to have luck, you need to believe in luck. If you want to receive miracles, you should in some small way be creating miracles for others? (every little bit helps) If you want expansion and abundance then are you in some way helping others create expansion and abundance in their lives? Do you really believe and have faith? A great yard stick of this is how you feel….if you really have faith and trust, you will notice a sense of peace…Are you counting your existing blessings and being optimistic about life in general (and of course the Sag ruled parts of life) or are you looking at the glass as half empty?

  5. Once you’ve answered these questions listen to the Jupiter and Earth soundbath (link below for your ease, I have been listening on repeat for the last day!) and then perhaps write up any further insights and maybe even a summary of what you have so far gotten out of this Jupiter in Sagittarius transit and what you would like to get out of it and how you are going to use this retrograde period over the next few months to harness the benefit of this powerful transit in your life, for your highest good and the greater good of all…



As an interesting FYI, I was born with Jupiter retrograde natally in my midheaven/tenth house, conjunct my moon….it’s a pretty powerful placement and I will say that I have experienced extraordinary luck in my life, as well as of course, some huge lessons and cosmic smackdowns ;)

What I have learnt with my retrograde natal Jupiter is how important it is to BE what I am seeking in my life and to adopt the higher qualities and light of Jupiter and Sagittarius, not because I am ‘trying’ to manifest something, but because it is the right thing to do.

And yes, the miracles and magic manifests too but that’s just a very nice extra.

I adopt the goodness of Jupiter/Sagittarius because it feels good to be kind, compassionate, generous, to be optimistic and choose faith over fear, to believe in equality and justice for all and to try in some small way to be part of that. It feels like I am being the best version of myself when I do that and I feel so much more aligned with my soul. It makes my SOUL feel FULL.

Also when you are busy doing and being all of that, you don’t have time to overly navel gaze and the cosmos can take care of you and your needs….

Just some food for thought from this Sagittarius Sun sign with a fourth house stellium in Sagittarius as we get ready to embrace this retrograde…

Love,

Soulstrology Scopes New Moon in Aries April 2019

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon in Aries!

As you know by now the New Moon actually represents the dark moon phase when the moon disappears from the skies and there is a blank canvas for each of us to draw upon and set intentions to create the next lunar month ahead.

In this space of lunar emptiness we can conduct a review, answer our cosmic coaching questions and set intentions accordingly, engaging in a ritual that is tailored specifically to this particular New Moon.

As you all know, this New Moon comes soon after Mercury turning direct and the new season of Spring.

Accordingly at this time I am suggesting that we each conduct a quarterly review of our 2019 experience thus far and resetting intentions where necessary and of course thinking about the natural zodiac themes of Aries and our goals for our identity over the next season and beyond in 2019.

Onward to your cosmic coaching and customized ritual which will help you achieve the above…

  1. Review your 2019 goals which you set at the beginning of the year (and some of which you may have set at the Capricorn solar eclipse in January). What goals have manifested? What can you tick off your list (if anything, don’t stress if you can’t!). What goals are you perhaps prepared to let go of, or reset? Journal/take note.

  2. Review the Aries ruled parts of your unique chart (using the Soulstrology zodiac guide in the Aries New Moon blog). You would recently have conducted a review of these areas of life at the Full Moon Spring Equinox, but this time, focus your review on what you wish to achieve in these areas of life. List your passions, your desires, your goals. Make sure to think about your identity and autonomy in these areas of life too. For example, Aries rules your fourth house of home, think about what role you play in your domestic/home life and how you wish to be more of your true self at home/in your domestic/private life and what that would look like. Another example would be if Aries rules your second house of your income/finances, think about how you can be more yourself, more true to your values, more honoring of your self (all second house themes) and earn income autonomously which reflects the real you. Hopefully you get the picture.

  3. Now think about your identity, your appearance, how others view you. Think about this next season and any shifts you may wish to make. Do you want to have a make over of sorts? Which role that you play in your life is of most importance over this next season? How do you wish to be seen by others/the world at large? Take notes and set intentions.

  4. Review how you have been going about manifesting your goals so far in 2019. Check in and ask yourself, have you been passive so far, having goals/setting intentions but not doing much else about them? If so, how can you harness the fiery action oriented energy of Aries to take practical steps towards your goals? Check in and also ask yourself if you’ve been pushing too hard? (the shadow of Aries!) and if so, how can you be less pushy and more in flow, being confident that once you’ve set intentions and taken action, you must trust the universe to bring you your desires in divine timing? How can you channel your ‘doing’ energy into other areas of your life that might need them?

  5. After journaling, MOVE YOUR BODY. In any way possible that makes you feel good and lets off some steam. Engage in any sort of physical activity (yes, sexercise counts ;) as does vigorous cleaning if you want to use this as an opportunity for a Spring clean!) which gets your heart rate higher, your blood pumping and endorphins flowing. Let your mind, body and soul communicate with each other once you’ve moved some energy.

  6. Take a shower or bath and imagine that you are releasing the remnants of Winter and/or the recent Mercury retrograde. Visualize the water as white light energizing you for this New Moon and next lunar cycle, to be your true self, to take action and to forge ahead in this new season.

  7. Set your intentions for the next lunar month using your journal prompt responses above. Write them out on a piece of paper or in your journal.

  8. Listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath. I recommend the Earth New Moon Soundbath and/or the Jupiter/Earth soundbath. Both are very grounded and with all this fiery Aries energy we want to make sure we are grounded. If you feel inclined to, you can adjust your New Moon list after the Soundbath.

  9. Celebrate as you’ve just conducted yet another powerful ritual!

  10. Read/recite your Aries New Moon Soulstrology Mantras and your Soulstrology Scopes below with a channeled words/message which represents your theme for the next lunar cycle (if you know your rising sign you will have two channeled messages as your theme)

April 2019 New Moon in Aries: Great achievement comes from great sacrifice

Ambi Sitham

New Moon In Aries.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon!

This New Moon falls at 15 degrees of Aries and takes place at 1.50am this Friday April 5 (adjust as always for your timezone).

Check where Aries rules in your unique chart by referring to the Soulstrology zodiac guide below.

For those of you more familiar with your charts, make sure to check where you have 15 degrees of Aries and any planets which are between 12 and 18 degrees of Aries as they will be activated by this New Moon.

This New Moon in the fiery Mars ruled sign of Aries comes after a particularly murky Mercury retrograde and should serve as a beautiful new start to the astrological New Year and to this new month of April and a new season for us all.

Nonetheless the New Moon also acts as a sharp reality check to each of us.

After the Neptunian fog and haziness of Mercury retrograde in Pisces, Aries season is waking us back up again - hence the Soulstrology theme for April 2019 of ‘Awakenings’.

The New Moon adds to those awakenings through the aspects made to stern cosmic life coach Saturn and the South and North nodes of the moon.

As always at a New Moon the Sun and Moon join together and here they sit at 15 degrees of Aries in the zodiac.

Together they form a challenging square aspect to Saturn who at 20 degrees of Capricorn sits right by the South Node at 22 degrees of Capricorn (our past life, karma, baggage but also what comes easily to us/our default positions).

We all probably know by now that Aries is the first sign of the natural zodiac, the leader of the zodiac pack and is a fire sign who is ruled by Mars and all about action, energy, manifesting, leadership, power, and conflict.

Regardless of our zodiac sign, the themes of our identity, our appearance, how we present ourselves to others, how others view us, will all come up for review at this New Moon.

As we embrace a new season, the start of the astrological year and acknowledge that a quarter of 2019 has passed we are all hopefully thinking about our goals for 2019 and what we wish to achieve, the summit of the mountain that we wish to climb to this year which would mean success for us (whatever that means and looks like).

This Aries New Moon will draw our attention further to these goals and to how we are manifesting them (or not) and to our identity, our appearance, how others view us and how we are managing energy in our lives.

It serves as an opportunity for us to reset ourselves after the first quarter of this year has passed and to harness the powerful energies at hand to set goals (or reset where necessary) and to make the internal shifts which help us create the external shifts.

The New Moon’s square to Saturn serves as a reality check, a wake up call of sorts.

It is to show us that whilst we may have goals we wish to manifest, or visions for our ever evolving identity, there are certain realities we must face.

In some cases this may force us to review and reset our goals, to be more realistic, to understand that perhaps some of our wishes are not manifesting for a reason - because they do not come from the right place (the soul, the higher self) and/or are not truly for our highest good.

In other cases, our reality check, or awakening, may be that we have a lot more to do in order to get to where we want to be, i.e. in order to manifest our dreams.

I don’t think I need to remind you all that Saturn is currently transiting Capricorn - his home sign who he rules - where he is very much ‘at home’ and performing at his best.

In Capricorn he is forcing us to review what success means, what reaching the summit of our professional (and personal) mountain is, what we wish our legacy to be.

He is making us get real about our ambitions and goals and showing us where we perhaps have not dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s or not done things by the book and therefore are not reaping the rewards we desire.

At this New Moon, Saturn’s stern headmaster like review is felt in full effect as he sends that beam of energy to the Aries ruled parts of our charts/lives.

As some of you will know by now, New Moons can often have the same intensity as Full Moons, as the sky is dark and the moon is not visible, and there can be an emptiness that is felt at this time, which can be unsettling.

It is possible that the New Moon/Saturn square will add to this (remember the shadow of Saturn is pessimism, negativity and even depression) especially given that Saturn sits so closely to the South Node (our past lives, what comes easily to us, but what is also our comfort zone and difficult for us to move our way out of) and Pluto - the great destroyer, but ultimately transformer.

There may be an energy of feeling stuck around certain goals we wish to achieve, or in trying to become the next version of ourselves.

We may see that in truth we are stuck in a rut of sorts, a comfort zone, and even the goals we are trying to achieve, or the identity we think is what we ‘should’ be reaching for, is in truth not for us, and that we need to transform, reset and rebirth our goals (Pluto).

Saturn also opposes the North Node (our destiny, what we are supposed to step into in this lifetime, our fate, but what is perhaps harder for us to achieve, but in true Saturn style, oh so sweet when we reach to achieve it).

Here, Saturn shows us the gap between where we are and where we want and need to be, in order to fulfill our destiny and ‘seeing’ this gap can naturally be somewhat unsettling.

But this is where the Soulstrology theme for the Aries New Moon of April 2019 steps in beautifully.

We all want great things for ourselves and our lives. We all have a vision for our 2019 and beyond.

But great achievements and successes require great sacrifice.

All of the aspects at this New Moon are pointing to this concept of achievement = sacrifice.

If we want something we usually need to do something, or give something up in order to achieve it.

In some cases, this will be about internal shifts, creating the space internally, working through our blockages so we can create the space within so we can receive and manifest externally.

In other cases, this is about taking action, doing the work of Saturn, working smart consistently to get to where we want to be.

And, for some this will be about letting go.

I posted something on this theme last week on Instagram as I was musing over the forthcoming New Moon.

The theme of letting go of how we think life should be, so it can be how it is supposed to be.

As per the energies of Saturn, the South node and Pluto conjunct at this New Moon, opposing the North node, for some this is about letting go.

Letting go of what you think you should be achieving, the identity that you are ‘supposed’ to have, so you can achieve what you are meant to and be who you are truly meant to be.

Some of you may be reading this and thinking, oh gosh, after this Mercury retrograde murkiness, I was hoping for better times, but as much as this New Moon may seem heavy, it actually has incredible potential for us to harness so we can reset ourselves and our goals for this new season and make significant headway between now and the Summer Equinox.

I am going to be diving deep into how we can do this in our Soulstrology Scopes cosmic coaching and customized ritual and mantras, along with a message for each sign.

For now, as Mercury is in its shadow and as we continue to reflect on the recent retrograde and integrate those lessons (listen to the April 2019 Member call for more on that) review the Aries ruled parts of your charts/lives (as well as of course in the natural zodiac) and let these themes sit with you and see what comes to mind.

More coming soon :)

Love,

Ambi x

Mars in Gemini: April 1 – May 16

Mars in Gemini.png

Happy Sunday and almost April!

Tomorrow, as we begin April, Mars, the planet of action, energy and drive, moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, meaning we start April off on an energetically higher vibration.

For more on this transit please enjoy this blog by the fabulous Lexie Rollet and don’t forget to check out her offerings and astro courses (she is offering an 11% discount to Soulstrology Members!) and connect with her on Instagram.

MARS IN GEMINI

Coming off of Mars in Taurus, we are probably a little ready for the energy planet to be in such an active sign. With the onset of Aries season, I’m sure you had plenty of interest to do something, to start something. But have you yet? If your answer is “No”, don’t feel bad. Mars in Taurus really isn’t a placement that inspires immediate action. 

No worries, though! For the rest of the Aries season, Mars will be in Gemini, which is an EXCELLENT combination. For all of you astro-savvy people, this is what we would call a sextile aspect. These two signs work extremely well with each other, but what’s even more important are the planets involved. Mars is the natural ruler of Aries so since the Sun is in Aries, we must look to Mars to help us understand just how active this Aries season really is. 

As said earlier, the first few weeks, although there was a desire to get shit done (Aries Sun), there probably wasn’t a huge energetic push to actually do it (Taurus Mars). With Mars in Gemini now, this will definitely change. Everything that Aries is inspiring you to do will have the support of intellectual and high energy Gemini. Here are some important things to know about Gemini and how Mars expresses itself in this sign:

Gemini is the mutable air sign of the zodiac. The air element puts the majority of Gemini’s energy in the mind. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which adds brilliance to Gemini’s mind. The mutable nature makes Gemini an adapter who wants to help the situation. When Mars is here, as long as there is an established direction (put in place by Aries), Gemini can make it intellectually possible. If there is no direction that is established, Mars in Gemini can express itself through anxiety, nervous energy, and continuous thought. 

Mars also governs our sexual energy. Mars in Gemini sexual energy is all about the mind. I know. You’re shocked. But seriously, the best way for us to get in the mood during this season is to experience it in the mind first. Connect on an intellectual level with your sexual partner, write a collaborative erotic novel through your texts back and forth, start talking about what you’re going to do that night when you first wake up in the morning. It’s all about creating a mental desire and enjoying the lead up to the actual act, more so than the act itself. 

Some words of caution with this Mars transit: don’t allow yourself to be “all talk”. This is a tendency when Mars is in Gemini: action looks more like talking about action. Yes, things will be discussed and quickly decided upon. This is even a wonderful time to use words (written or spoken) to motivate and inspire people to get on board with you! But don’t stay in the “inspire” phase. You will need to show the actions that you’re promising.

Now, for some insight for each sign while Mars in Gemini:

ARIES/ARIES RISING: The power of persuasion is on your side during this transit. All of those big and bold ideas of yours can be made possible with the power of intellectual and communicative Mars in Gemini. You should have no issue asserting yourself and speaking your mind during this transit. Just check that temper. No use in shooting yourself in the foot with unnecessary arguments. 

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING: Manifest that money, Taurus!! Has Aries inspired some ideas for you to get some extra cash? Great! Now let Mars do its work! Talk up the idea, share your message with others, inspire and motivate, apply intellect - not just emotion. By employing Gemini traits, Mars will have a better chance of manifesting more money. Just make sure there’s a plan for the money once you’ve acquired it. 

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING: Hello Mars! With Mars in your home, you might find yourself making even impulsive decisions than you did before! You’re a little less likely to listen to advice and counsel during this time, which is kind of ideal for you if you want to get anything done. Advice from others is great, but it could cause you to change your mind too soon.

CANCER/CANCER RISING: Mars is in your spiritual house during this transit. This is really pulling your energy inward. Your feelings, your intuition, your thoughts, even your sexual drive may all be in high gear, but difficult to let bubble to the surface. Let this be a time to deeply connect with yourself again. 

LEO/LEO RISING: Take it to the masses! The energy planet is in your house of community and friendships which is great for getting other people involved in what you’re trying to accomplish! You may even feel a sense of responsibility for these people, like what you’re trying to accomplish will benefit them, as well. Just make sure to not get into unnecessary arguments.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING: Lots of energy for your career right now!! Take initiative, lean into your ambition, and use the Gemini communication powers to inspire others to get involved with your plans. You definitely like to air on the side of “doing it all yourself” but use this transit to challenge yourself to motivate other people to help you.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING: You may feel driven to sharing your philosophies with others. Connect with people on shared values, ethics, and ideals in order to inspire the action you desire. This may also be a wonderful time to do some traveling! Live life to the fullest while Mars is in Gemini! You deserve it!

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING: It’s sexy time for you during this transit (but when is it not sexy time, Scorpio??). This time around, it’s extremely important for you to get turned on in the mind, first. And yeah, there might be some energy inspiring you to pursue multiple people. Just make sure you’re not doing anything that’s out of line with the lifestyle you’re currently living.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING: You’re definitely known for your independence, Sag, and with Mars being in your house of partnership right now, the script isn’t really changing. But it does add a bit of impulsivity. You might find yourself making some impulsive moves, maybe even being a little bit aggressive. Whoever is fortunate enough to win your affections will most assuredly be gifted with your ramped up sex drive.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING: How are those fitness and health goals going? Meh? Well, Mars is here to give you a boost! Quickly pick a plan of attack and go all in on it. If the plan could involve a few different ways to move your body, that would be ideal so you don’t get bored. This is also a time to put in some much-needed energy into your daily work tasks. 

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING: It’s quite a time for competition! Maybe get involved in rec-sports so you can burn off some of that competitive energy. Otherwise, you may take that competitive edge to the bedroom. Maybe that’s actually a good thing right now? But ultimately, get into the romantics of it all and excite in the mind first. Really lay into the adventure leading up to getting physical.

PISCES/PISCES RISING: Got some home projects in mind? This would be a great time to get after them! Make a mentally stimulating game out of it with all the members of your household (even if it’s just you). If you aren’t intellectually inspired and there isn’t too much going on, you’ll lose interest pretty quickly. Watch out for conflict within the home during this time. Arguments are more apt to happen. 

 

 

 

April 2019: Awakenings

Ambi Sitham

April 2019.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost April :)

These monthly cosmic updates are now also Soulstrology Member only content and so are exclusively for you.

I hope you enjoy these cosmic updates as they pop into your inbox each month giving you the heads up about the cosmic influences in the month ahead as well as dates to log into your Soulstrology Member area to access the latest blogs (as I won’t pop into your inbox each time there is a new blog as I don’t want to overly bombard you…but heads up there is a new post waiting for you on the move of Venus into Pisces written by Soulstrology cosmic star Lexie Rollet which you should definitely check out).

Onward to April 2019 a month in which will see three planets turn retrograde…but to our advantage.

This month, cosmic benefic Jupiter, cosmic life coach Saturn and cosmic transformer Pluto all turn retrograde.

But this news should not cause you to shudder or to be fearful.

These are bigger planets, more traditionally considered ‘outer’ planets and unlike Mercury, Mars and Venus whose respective retrograde motions can wreak havoc with our lives, these planets retrograde motions do not have the same visceral aarrrgh retrograde impact upon us earthlings.

This is partially because these planets are literally further away from Earth and therefore their movement (or rather perceived movement) is not so discombobulating to us.

Also, their retrogrades last way longer (approximately 4-6 months) and so we don’t feel the same intensity of the retrograde lessons in a shorter period of time (such as for example, Mercury where I think it is safe to say we all FEEL all the FEELS and all at once!)

The start of these retrogrades this month, post the first Mercury retrograde of the year and in the start of not only the new astrological year but also a new season of life, will lead to many awakenings.

Regardless of our sign, Aries season will have us focusing on ourselves.

Our identities, autonomy, appearance, our inner leader (yes, each of us is a leader in our own unique way!) and how we go about manifesting our ambitions as well as how we deal with conflict with others.

Each retrograde will have specific lessons for the specific life areas which the planet/zodiac sign rules in our charts but they will in some way be contributing to awakenings we have about ourselves (Aries) this month.

It is a powerful month ahead.

Hopefully one in which we can shake off the fuzziness of the Mercury retrograde in Pisces and can harness the fiery energy of Aries and the new astrological year to forge ahead with a new season of life.

More on this to come in your various Member blogs (all listed below for your ease of reference)

Venus in Pisces: March 27 - April 20

Venus in Pisces.png

Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday!

Hopefully you are all enjoying Aries season and the start of Spring and not feeling those murky Mercury retrograde feels toooo much.

As you all know Mercury is due to station direct later this week (Saturday March 30 - the day of our April Member call, yikes, hope he doesn’t mess with us!) and this week we also have Venus on the move as she moves into Pisces tomorrow, Wednesday March 27 where she will remain until April 20.

Hopefully this will bring rose tinted glasses and romance back into our love lives after the Venus in Aquarius transit (and given that Mercury will be direct again).

Fellow Soulstrologer, Lexie Rollet of Alexandria Astrology has contributed this wonderful piece on the forthcoming Venus in Pisces transit for our community.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Happy Tuesday and start to Venus in Pisces!

Intuition and Flow

Pisces is one of the most intuitive signs in the Zodiac and when it is using its intuition is when its performing at its best. Pisces doesn’t want to force something with plans, organization, and practicality. It wants to let in the flow and whatever is supposed to be, will be. Pisces has an inherent knowing that takes over, almost without realizing it. If there was ever a time to trust our intuition in regards to our love life, manifesting our deepest desires, or making money, it is now! 

 

Tools for Self-Discovery

Even though the energy that surrounds us now is wonderful for accessing our intuition, doesn’t mean that it’s easy for all of us. Sometimes it can be difficult for Pisces to trust itself, so an excellent practice to develop that trust is to use tools to help us access it. A few tools to consider are crystals, tarot, journaling, sound baths, tuning forks, Mala beads, essential oils, just to name a few. When using them, trust that they will inform your intuition; but recognize that they aren’t the source of your intuition. 

 

Boundaries

This will be a time when boundaries are a hot topic. We will experience the natural inclination to NOT have boundaries. For some, that will feel really, really good. But for others, they will feel suffocated and disoriented. This will definitely be present in love and relationships. For some, you can almost start to feel like you no longer know where you end and where your partner begins. This energy doesn’t last forever so if deep and powerful connection is something you’ve been missing, then this would be the perfect time to experience what it’s like to love others as a Pisces does.

 

Maintaining Balance

Venus very much wants things to be level, balanced and harmonic. But Pisces makes this difficult with extreme emotions and lack of boundaries. So this time is more about balancing the flow. Seems odd, doesn’t it? But extremely important because when Venus is in Pisces, we risk the possibility of losing reality. Especially since Neptune is in its home of Pisces right now. It’s very easy for Venus to live with rose-colored glasses, altering reality to appear prettier than it actually is. And Pisces can make up its own reality altogether. 

Below is what each sign might want to focus on during this transit that will occur from March 27th to April 21st. 

ARIES - For you, Venus is activating your money house. By deeply connecting with others, truly understanding their needs, and genuinely wanting to help them, Venus will help you manifest. However, this Pisces energy adds the potential of giving too much of your money away for the benefit of others and being a little too lax in your spending. Boundaries will be extremely important for you this month.

 

TAURUS - Venus is providing wonderful creative energy and giving you a gift of charming communication. This is a stellar time to connect with others on a deeper level and people may even gravitate to you with a need to talk about their feelings. Just be careful to not over-promise or talk yourself into a situation where someone gets the wrong idea about your intentions. You just want to make people feel good about themselves, nothing more.

 

GEMINI - With Venus in your house of home, this month may inspire you to get dreamy with home-reno plans or even get dreamy about how to better balance the home dynamic you have. Definitely be conscious of your spending habits when it comes to buying things for your home. You may look up at the end of the transit and ask, “Where did all of my money go?!”

 

CANCER - Venus is all up in your romantic and creative house. This gives you the ability to tap into your most tender emotions and be very generous in your love life. However, there’s a possibility of becoming involved with people unintentionally. If you’re coupled already, make sure you put this Pisces energy toward your partner instead of toward some co-worker (or otherwise) that is trying to show their affections for you. 

 

LEO - You might see a flow state happening at work for the next month. Just be mindful if someone is getting too much of the load, which could even be you. This is a time to make sure there’s a balance of the flow of work. If one person is taking on too much, they may justify it by saying they are doing what’s best for the company and their associates but there is a risk of burnout.

 

VIRGO - Oh the feels!! They are ever-present in your relationships for the next few weeks. Venus is there giving you the desire to be even more affectionate and romantic and Pisces is there to make that connection even deeper. Just be cautious that you’re giving this to someone who truly deserves it and is showing you the same amount of affection back.

 

LIBRA - You may find yourself deeply entangled within someone’s sheets. The power of Venus and the energy of Pisces is infusing your sex life with intensity, generosity, imagination, creativity, and a whole lot of intuition. It’s almost like you know exactly what your partner needs without them telling you. This is truly a situation of not knowing where you end and they begin. Just be aware of their true intentions and don’t get caught up in a false reality you’ve created for yourself.

 

SCORPIO - You may find it easier to connect on a deeper level with people from different backgrounds, and therefore find greater acceptance. This is also a really great time to check in with your general philosophies and explore if maybe furthering your education might be a good option for you. Check with yourself to see if you are truly and deeply connected to the morals you’ve been operating by thus far. 

 

SAGITTARIUS - Finding flow in your work will be a focus for you. You might have had the tendency to get lost in your work in the past and that has served you well but it’s also gotten you into some difficult situations. However, Venus is here to help you build in some balance. Do some work with boundary setting so that you can find the sweet spot between being in flow, but being able to come out of flow at a reasonable time. 

 

CAPRICORN - Social hour for you!! Deep connections with larger amounts of people and any community you’re in will be much easier over the next few weeks. This is also a really wonderful time to get extra dreamy about your hopes and wishes for your life. This could potentially be a good time to let those dreams run rampant and really see what you can come up with. Dream big, right?! Just don’t remain so dreamy that you don’t get any work done, though.

 

AQUARIUS - Finding balance in the depths of your spirituality will most likely take a front seat over the next few weeks. This is an especially great time for you to reconnect with your intuition and employ some of the self-discovery tools mentioned earlier. Spend some time alone to dig into what your spiritual practices are, what purpose do they serve in your life, and how they can coexist with everything else you envision for your life.

 

PISCES - With Venus in your sign right now, you may feel a bit extra affectionate towards others and might even attract more people to you. Your kind-hearted and gentle energy is much desired right now which makes you feel needed and loved. Words of caution with this are to not lose yourself in others to the point that you start sacrificing your time, energy, or even money for people who wouldn’t happily return the favor. Use this time to help others where absolutely necessary but mostly focus on connecting with yourself and giving yourself what you truly need.

 

 

 

Spring Equinox: Soulstrology Soundbath Pluto and Mercury

Ambi Sitham

Soundbath.png

Hello lovely ones!

I hope you are all faring well as we approach the Full Moon Equinox.

To celebrate this momentous cosmic occasion and to help you navigate this time (and the remainder of Mercury retrograde) I recorded this new Soulstrology Soundbath with the sounds and vibrations of cosmic powerhouse Pluto as well as Mercury gongs, as well as of course crystal chakra bowls and chimes.

Pluto is an intense planet and gong. He dives deep within our subconscious mind and uproots those things which we may not be able to see easily, or may not wish to see. He also helps us to transform our psyches and ourselves. He helps us to see what parts of ourselves, or our lives we need to allow to die, as they do not serve us and what we need to rebirth. He helps us to be soulfully powerful.

Combined with Mercury his work in this Soulstrology Soundbath is to help us with our minds, our thoughts, our communication, whether with ourselves and/or with others.

Everything starts within, in our minds, and is then created externally.

Consciousness creates reality.

But so often our consciousness is so deeply ingrained within our subconscious minds that we do not realize that we are creating from a place/thoughts/a subconscious which does not serve us or our highest good.

My intention when I recorded this particular Soundbath was to help each of us listening to allow the sounds and vibrations to penetrate our subconscious minds and our psyches and help transform our thoughts, our ways of thinking and communicating in a way which serves us better, and helps us get more of what we want as we embrace this new season.

I hope you enjoy listening and I hope it helps you both at this time and in the future.

Ps as always listen with your headphones on for maximum effect and perhaps lie down, light a candle, burn some sage and create an atmosphere which helps you get the most out of this experience.

Pps. As I told our Soulstrology Facebook private group today (please join us if you are on FB!) I listened to it twice earlier today and had some big revelations!

Love,

Soulstrology Scopes Full Moon Libra March 2019

Ambi Sitham

Libra Full Moon.png

Hello lovely ones and I hope this finds you well as we approach this powerful Libra Full Moon and the Equinox…

If you haven’t already, please do read the Soulstrology Libra Full Moon blog to understand the energies at play at this Full Moon as it will help you tackle the cosmic coaching and journal prompts below as well as get the most out of the customized ritual and mantras.

Remember that although Libra rules different life areas in each of our unique charts, we also need to think carefully about the natural zodiac themes of both Libra (the Full Moon) and Aries (the Sun and Chiron) at this time.

As a reminder…

Aries rules the self and our individuality, identity, autonomy, how we assert ourselves, how we pursue and manifest our ambitions, and how we deal with conflict (and fight!).

Aries is ME, MINE, I.

Libra rules relationships/partnerships of all kinds and how we relate with others, how we negotiate, compromise, find balance and harmony and peace.

Libra is US, WE, YOU.

Regardless of the life areas Aries/Libra rule in our charts, we must think about these concepts, themes and traits of both Aries/Libra and apply these to the life areas being illuminated in our unique charts in the lunar spotlight.

Remember your Soulstrology zodiac guides to both Aries/Libra will help you easily identify the life areas highlighted for you at this time and don’t forget to read for both your Sun and Rising sign.

Onward here is your cosmic coaching and customized ritual.

  1. Journal on the Aries ruled life areas in your chart. What significant shifts have you experienced since 2010? What new chapter do you find yourself in? How does this new chapter best allow you to embrace your true identity? What new wounds, issues, obstacles, challenges are you dealing with in relation to these life areas? What do you wish to let go of?

  2. Journal on the Libra ruled life areas in your chart. How are things going in these areas of life? How happy/peaceful/harmonious is life? How are your relationships of all sorts in these life areas? What (or who) is causing you pain, conflict, or unhappiness in these life areas? What do you feel needs healing or releasing?

  3. Write a burn and release list based on the responses to the above to questions. Make sure to also include any issues you have with yourself (e.g with your identity, appearance, autonomy, your ‘self’ including your relationship with yourself) as well as any relationship issues of any type, whether personal, platonic, professional, romantic, close or distant. Also make sure to include in this list anything else you may wish to release at this time that is causing you anger (Aries) or perhaps repressed anger/passive aggression due to people pleasing (Libra).

  4. Light a candle, burn some sage and listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath (perhaps try the new Pluto/Mercury soundbath (which will be live by the Equinox Full Moon in a separate post) which will help transform your thoughts and mindset and really help bring out those sub-conscious thoughts which you may need to heal/release/transform, or of course listen to one of the classics - Chiron/Full Moon, Earth, Pluto) and just allow the sounds and vibrations to wash over you. If you desire, you can repeat the Libra Full Moon mantras (below). You may ‘see’ things or receive messages during this Soundbath meditation that means you wish to add to your burn and release list. If so, do this directly after the Soundbath and also separately journal any insights you receive.

  5. Conduct a burn and release fire ceremony. If you are lucky enough to have a fire pit or fireplace you can simply burn and release your list there. If not, use a candle or lighter to burn your list and as always, as you see the list go up in flames, make sure to visualize the energies, people, situations, wounds you wish to release leaving your body, like the smoke rises from the burning list, so too visualize that smoke/dark clouds leaving your physical body.

  6. Go on a walk, get outside, get some AIR (Libra) and when you return if you still feel the need for some final healing, jump in the shower or take a salt bath and visualize a further level of energetic healing/cleansing as you wash (shower) or soak off (bathe) the energies you wish to release.

  7. Journal about any insights you may have had on the Aries/Libra ruled parts of your life and how you feel you can approach these life areas with a different consciousness aimed at you having the best relationship with yourself and others.

  8. Celebrate! Your work is done! You’ve just completed a powerful Soulstrology Full Moon ritual. Check out your Soulstrology Scopes for a channeled message for your sign to carry with you as the Full Moon reaches her peak and we embrace the Equinox and a new chapter.

    SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES MANTRAS LIBRA FULL MOON MARCH 2019

I commit to being my best, most authentic self and release all the thoughts, energies and behaviors which do not serve me being my highest, truest self

I recognize the people and relationships in my life that are less than healthy or thriving and I commit to owning my part in these relationships and to healing and transforming myself before I look to others

I am honest with myself about the situations in which I am perhaps not expressing my true emotions in order to keep the peace

I allow myself to express these feelings, even if inwardly, and to release the energies around any situations which may be causing me pent up frustration, anger or sadness

I ask the universe to help me to heal those relationships which can be healed and to release those which need to be released

I trust that as long as I continue to work on myself, ultimately my relationships will thrive and be healthy and enjoyable

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING: Your tribe influence your vibe. Make sure yours encourage you to be your true self and express your highest vibration.

CANCER/CANCER RISING: To enjoy successful relationships in your professional life you must first ensure you are valuing and nourishing yourself before you can be valued and flourish.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING: You must learn to please yourself, love yourself and honor your truth so you can truly enjoy relationships in which you are loved, respected and can flourish.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING: Your every day relationships, particularly those at ‘work’ will benefit from you digging deep in your relationship with yourself and transforming and healing hidden parts of you.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING: Your relationship with creativity, joy, passion and even children is influenced by those who you surround yourself with, so choose wisely.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING: Focusing on work and your professional self comes easily to you, but focusing on your home life and your relationship with loved ones is as important - balance the scales.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING: The relationship you have with your mind is crucial to the relationship you have with the outside world and how your voice is heard. Focus inwards, flourish outwards.

PISCES/PISCES RISING: Your relationship with money (and debt) is tied up in your relationship with yourself and your self-worth. Value yourself to be valued and receive abundance.

Full Moon in Libra March 2019: Every ending is a new beginning

Ambi Sitham

Full Moon Libra.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Full Moon and Spring Equinox (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere).

This Full Moon is super powerful and significant for a number of reasons.

It is the first of two consecutive Full Moons in Libra and aligns with the Spring Equinox and the Sun’s entry into Aries at 6.45pm PT on Wednesday March 20 2019 (as always, adjust for your timezone).

With the Sun at zero degrees of Aries and the Moon at zero degrees of Libra this is indeed a ‘critical’ Full Moon.

As you may recall both the beginning degree of a sign - zero degrees - and the end degree - 29 degrees are known as critical degrees which activate a deeper connection to the cosmic transit and make the cosmic energies at play more intense.

This combined with the change of seasons into Spring (and Fall for those in the Southern hemisphere) makes this Full Moon very much a game changer, hence the Soulstrology title/theme of endings and beginnings.

To make it easier for you to follow the life areas being illuminated by the Full Moon please see the Soulstrology Zodiac blogs at the end of this post with a guide to both Aries and Libra.

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

Also, please note if you have any planets between zero - three degrees of Aries or Libra pay particular attention to the themes of those planets as they will be triggered by this Full Moon.

Let us turn now to the planetary aspects of this Full Moon and the themes this raises for us to deal with.

You are all probably aware that there has been some big outer planetary movement over the last month with cosmic change agent Uranus moving out of Aries and into Taurus where he will now be for the next seven years and wounded healer Chiron moving out of Pisces and into Aries where he will be for the next eight years.

These are both very significant to each of us and the Pisces/Aries/Taurus parts of our lives as they indicate the ending of certain chapters and the beginnings of others.

For the purposes of this Full Moon this post will only focus on the Aries parts of our lives which is being highlighted at this time.

Even though the Full Moon is in Libra, as with every Full Moon, it opposes the Sun - now in Aries, a part of the zodiac (and therefore our lives) which has seen a lot of transition since Uranus moved into Aries in 2010.

The Aries ruled parts of each of our charts/lives should have experienced great upheaval, upsets and ultimately a new era since 2010, ending now with the departure of Uranus earlier this month.

Ultimately this has been to liberate us. To free us of our own often self-imposed limitations (or those imposed by society) and to push us into birthing a new paradigm.

This is not only to be celebrated but in many ways we may find ourselves breathing a sigh of relief.

Uranus is known for pulling the rug out from underneath us in order to shake things up a bit but this can have us face planting rather painfully….

Therefore this new paradigm, a new era, which is less tumultuous and has smoother seas to sail upon is to be celebrated.

However, we need to take into account the move of Chiron the wounded healer into the Aries part of the zodiac and our charts.

At the time of this Full Moon, Chiron is just over a degree away from the Sun in Aries - so his energies are conjunct the Sun (the essence of the energies are blended and combined) and therefore just as the Sun opposes the Moon, so too does Chiron…

Hopefully you all know by now the intensity of an opposition (and why Full Moons tend to be so intense!) but add wounded healer Chiron into the mix of an opposition and it intensifies things even further.

Although it may seem like it (depending on what is going on in our unique lives and charts) any pain we may be experiencing at this time are not only necessary but they play a powerful role in the process of this new chapter we are experiencing in the Aries ruled parts of our lives.

When we create something new in our lives, we tend to also experience trials and tribulations, errors and mishaps and sometimes pain and suffering.

I like to think of this of the inevitable growing pains of a sweet new chapter.

We receive something (or create it - however you want to look at it or term it) and then invariably something goes ‘wrong’ or perhaps causes us ‘pain’ of sorts - teething or growing pains.

But every rose has its thorn….and these pains are a necessary part of this new chapter.

This is the theme of this particular Full Moon which (as always!) has been set up by the cosmos for us to experience certain energies providing us with the ideal cosmic window to work with the celestial configurations, mind, body and soul.

At this Full Moon we need to be aware of the troubles we may be experiencing in either the Aries or Libra ruled parts of our lives.

This is a message from the wounded healer Chiron who will be working his way through the Aries ruled parts of our lives for several years in turn opposing the Libra ruled parts of our lives and perhaps causing some pain and discomfort there too.

Remember, this pain or difficulty has purpose. It is there to teach us lessons we need to learn in this new terrain we are navigating in the Aries ruled parts of our lives (which has a direct impact on the opposing Libra ruled part of our lives) and this process will ultimately embolden us with wisdom and energy which we will use to manifest and uplift these areas of life.

There will be further detail on how to harness this Chiron aspect in your Soulstrology scopes with cosmic coaching, a customized ritual and more…

But for now, let us turn to the other aspects at play at this Spring Equinox Full Moon and the other energies and themes of consciousness they create for us to work with on this earth plane…

Venus the ruler of this Full Moon (as the ruler of Libra) is in Aquarius.

Here, she is rebellious, eccentric, unpredictable and does not behave in her typical Venusian manner.

She also makes a tense square aspect to Mars (the ruler of the Sun in Aries) who is in grounded, earthy, but also stubborn, Taurus.

This tense square between the two rulers of this Spring Equinox Full Moon will simply add to the tension which may be felt at this time, particularly in relation to relationships, finances and creative projects.

Mars does make a beautiful trine aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, giving us the energy to take constructive action to transform (I think you all know by now that Pluto is all about transformation!) ourselves or our lives, depending on what the Full Moon illuminates.

Venus makes a harmonizing sextile aspect to Jupiter in Sagittarius bringing the themes of justice, healing and even miracles into the mix.

In summary, although this is an intense Full Moon and one in which we may feel deep Chirotic wounds (depending on our unique charts and where we are on our unique journeys) it is also one where we can truly bid farewell to some of the upheavals of the last nine years and where we can embrace a beautiful new beginning for all that it will entail; the rough and the smooth, knowing that as the saying goes, we can complain that rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses….

More coming soon but for now check out the Soulstrology zodiac guides below and start thinking about the life areas which will be illuminated at this Equinox Full Moon.

Love,

Soulstrology Scopes New Moon in Pisces March 2019

SS New Moon Pisces.png

Hello lovely ones and happy (!) Mercury turns retrograde/New Moon dark moon feels!

I am certainly feeling all the feels of both Mercury retrograde and the dark moon and am REsponding (a la mercury retrograde!) by surrendering to those feels and honoring this time for what it is - a big week in the cosmos with a whole heap of action going on which can result in us feeling a little off, maybe discombobulated, but it’s so we can experience clarity and be ON in the weeks to come as we embrace a new season…

Onward to your cosmic coaching and customized ritual which I hope will help you navigate this New Moon and the next lunar cycle.

  1. Review the Pisces ruled parts of your charts (see Soulstrology zodiac guide at the bottom of this post) and make a note of your goals with regards to these life areas - think goals you already have which you may not yet have manifested as well as new goals you wish to set.

  2. Make a note of where you feel stuck in relation to the Pisces ruled areas of life. This can be where your goals may not be manifesting so easily and/orwhere you may feel you experience wounds of sorts - a repeated pattern and cycle - and not one which serves you.

  3. Think back to 2010 (I know, it’s a long time ago!) and the last nine years and see if you can identify repeated negative cycles, or wounds which you experienced in these areas of life. Check in with yourself and take note as to whether you can truly say, hand on heart, that you have broken those negative cycles and healed those wounds - both internally and externally.

  4. If you are still experiencing negative cycles and/or continue to suffer with wounds in the Pisces ruled areas of life, then journal on why you think this might be happening and what you think you may need to shift in order break free of these repeated cycles and wounds.

  5. Depending on your notes and responses to the above questions, start to make a note of five things (keep it simple this New Moon!) you would like to create in the Pisces ruled parts of life over the next month. n.b don’t focus so much on the external but rather the internal. So for example, rather than saying, ‘I manifest the abundance of $xxxx ‘ say instead, ‘I manifest the space within for abundance by working on releasing the blocks I have, limiting beliefs etc’ and/or another example, rather than saying, ‘I manifest a better relationship with my partner’ say instead, ‘I manifest a healthier, happier relationship with myself, which is reflected by my relationships with close partners of all sorts’

  6. Take a bath or shower (Pisces is all about that healing energy of water and learning to flow). As you bathe or shower visualize that the water you feel on your body is washing away those old negative patterns/cycles or wounds. When you feel you’ve visualized this sufficiently, visualize that water as white light that you are flowing harmoniously with as you manifest those goals (again focusing on the internal and what you manifest within, rather than the external). So for example, visualizing that the ‘white light’ water is healing your body internally so you can create a miracle with your body externally. Or visualizing that ‘white light’ water filling you up full of faith, trust, belief in yourself and the universe, bringing abundant energies into your energetic body so you can experience abundance on the physical plane. Hopefully you get the picture!

  7. Listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath. Goes without saying that Mercury retrograde will be a good one to listen to as well as good old Chiron (Full Moon soundbath) and Pluto (the great transformer, I will be listening to him lots over the next few days!) or Earth if you feel you need some good grounding.

  8. Celebrate! You’ve just conducted a powerful ritual!

    SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES MANTRAS PISCES NEW MOON MARCH 2019

I embrace this New Moon as an opportunity for final healing and closure of the past

I harness the power of this New Moon, Mercury Retrograde and the forthcoming lunar cycle as a period of internal manifestation, by way of healing, clearing and making space for all that I desire

I set intentions which reflect the inner state I know I must create in order to manifest external experiences

I adopt patience with myself and others during this process and know that my efforts will reap rewards in divine timing

SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES PISCES NEW MOON MARCH 2019

Aries/Aries rising: I trust that the degree to which I can experience true inner peace is the degree to which I can be in my full personal power.

Taurus/Taurus rising: I know that being true to my heart and following my dreams will lead me to the right people and places.

Gemini/Gemini rising: I trust that not only is success mine for the taking but it is whatever I deem it to be and that I can manifest success which truly serves my soul.

Cancer/Cancer rising: I believe in the power of my mind, to heal what needs healing, manifest miracles and create the life I desire.

Leo/Leo rising: I trust that I have the ability to attract the right people to merge with, whether personally, financially, or professionally.

Virgo/Virgo rising: I believe in my ability to have a better relationship with myself which is reflected in better relationships with others.

Libra/Libra rising: I know that it is possible for me to manifest a daily working lifestyle that is healthy for my mind, body and soul and I embrace doing so.

Scorpio/Scorpio rising: I trust that I can express my true self in creative matters and my true emotions in matters of the heart and that in doing so I will shine brighter.

Sagittarius/Sagittarius rising: I believe in my ability to have the family, home and domestic life I desire and to embrace and express this side of my persona.

Capricorn/Capricorn rising: I know that the degree to which I can heal the communication with myself is the degree to which I can communicate as my highest self and be a true channel.

Aquarius/Aquarius rising: I trust that the degree to which I can believe in myself and my values is the degree to which I can be valued by life itself.

Pisces/Pisces rising: I know it is time to turn the page and for a sweet new chapter and I believe in myself and all the goodness which awaits!

Mercury Retrograde in Pisces: March 5 - 28 2019

Ambi Sitham

Merc Retro Pisces.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon and Mercury turns retrograde!

Tuesday March 5 is the start of the first retrograde of 2019 which also happens to be a Mercury retrograde.

Hopefully you will have all read the Mercury in Pisces post from a couple of weeks ago which would have highlighted what some of this very long transit of Mercury in Pisces means for each of us and how best we can use it.

But now Mercury is officially retrograde and so it is a good time for us to remind ourselves of what this retrograde is all about, what to be wary of and how best we can use it to our advantage.

Mercury rules communication of all sorts (listening, speaking, the spoken and written word - and mail comes into this!) our minds (how we think, what we think about, our mental processing) travel (of all kinds), technology and contracts.

Even though Mercury retrograde is in many ways a planetary illusion. I know I refer to the planet doing a backwards dance and it does in terms of the zodiac degrees, but it doesn’t actually turn around and move in another direction.

Nonetheless, I think most of us can attest to feeling all the feels (and not necessarily in a good way!) when good ole Mercury turns retrograde.

Communication can get tricky. People can misunderstand each other through miscommunication. This can result in mixed messages and even conflict. We may not receive certain messages (those texts, phone calls or emails which go missing into cyberspace). We may experience delays in receiving our mail, causing us issues elsewhere.

We may experience travel hiccups.

From a flat tire, to dreadful traffic (I kid you not it is amazing how much worse the traffic is during mercury retrogrades) to missed flights and more.

We may find our thinking really fuzzy and find it difficult to get clarity within our own minds on something important.

We may experience brain freeze and find it difficult to harness our minds at work or in creative projects.

Contracts can be an issue at this time. Whether formal contracts or verbal ones, prior contracts can come back to haunt us at this time.

If we are trying to enter into a contract it may prove difficult to pin the other party down and we may have to take extra care as the contract as it stands may not truly serve us.

Technology can go horribly wrong at this time. Gadgets breaking. Computers crashing.

All of this can slow us down as we attempt to go about our daily lives and progress our plans and can lead to a sense of frustration and irritation.

And then the past comes knocking…perhaps things we need to revisit, reconsider, reconcile, review etc….

This isn’t always easy (or welcome) as we may be completely blindsided by the past coming knocking and/or it may be a painful experience.

But as always, we must remember, that every aspect has a duality to it and that Mercury retrograde also offers us a powerful opportunity to s l o w down and to do all things RE and indeed allow ourselves to revisit and ultimately reset/restart an area of life.

Sometimes the past coming knocking for reconciling (within our psyches and in real life), sometimes for final resolution and sometimes for a resounding success (my green card application which I REsubmitted during a mercury retro shadow period was finally approved during the mercury retrograde - a merc retro miracle indeed!).

In the days leading up to Mercury stationing retrograde the shadow period will have felt very intense.

Notice what happened over the last five days/week.

It may give you a clue as to what this retrograde means for you…or some of the themes you may need to be dealing with over the next few weeks.

Now Mercury retrograde in Pisces is going to be interesting for various reasons (and please do re-read the Mercury in Pisces blog from a couple of weeks ago as it has pertinent information which you should pay attention to) but in short, it is likely to mean we may feel ever so slightly lost at sea, or adrift, over the next few weeks.

This is because Pisces is a sign which (regardless of our zodiac sign) rules the psyche and the subconscious mind and given Mercury rules the mind, this combination could bring up a lot of ‘stuff’ that we are not totally clear on, which is unexpected and which makes us feel a little mentally (and emotionally) out of sorts.

Pisces also rules what we keep ‘hidden’ and secrets and so this might be a time when some past secret/thing we keep hidden currently raises its head and makes us feel a little out at sea (all these references to the sea are because Pisces is ruled by Neptune and Neptune is the god of the sea).

And of course in each of our unique charts Pisces rules different life areas/themes.

So we need to be aware of what these themes are (see Soulstrology zodiac guide below) and that they will need to be revisited over the next few weeks and as per the Mercury in Pisces blog from a couple of weeks ago, that if any old wounds resurface, they come up for final healing and closure, so we can each experience a sweet, new chapter.

Note that this Mercury retrograde takes place at the all critical final degree of Pisces (29 degrees) meaning that it is a particularly powerful retrograde which we are likely to feel for all the reasons laid out in the Mercury in Pisces blog from a couple of weeks ago (namely the end of the transit of wounded healer Chiron in Pisces).

This Mercury retrograde will be impacting the New Moon in Pisces which takes place the following day (the cosmos certainly has a sense of humor!) and you will be able to read about that in separate posts coming very soon.

For a general Mercury Retrograde do’s and dont’s and a throwback , ‘revisiting’ past astro posts of my own (in true Mercury retrograde style) please read my Huffington Post blog from 2014 as the advice still stands true to this day.

Wishing you a mindful start to this Mercury retrograde! Don’t forget to listen to a soundbath or two to help you out (there is a specific Mercury retrograde soundbath and plenty more for you to access!)

March 2019 New Moon in Pisces: Dreams, reality and manifesting

Ambi Sitham

New Moon In Pisces.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon!

This New Moon takes place this Wednesday March 6 2019 at 8.04am PT (adjust for your timezone) and falls at 15 degrees of Pisces.

You can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide at the bottom of this blog to check where this New Moon falls in your chart (make sure to read for both your Sun and Rising sign) and if you are more of a Soulstrology pro then you can check your unique natal chart to find exactly where 15 degrees of Pisces falls and where this New Moon falls exactly (as well as any planets you have at around 13-17 degrees of Pisces as their energies will be blended with this New Moon).

As you all know, Mercury is also retrograde in Pisces and in a few weeks time, Mercury will turn direct at 16 degrees of Pisces so almost the same degree as this New Moon.

This is no cosmic coincidence, and rather a beautiful cosmic synchronicity devised to assist us with getting the most out of this Mercury retrograde and the Pisces New Moon lunar cycle.

Given the New Moon takes place the day after Mercury turns retrograde, it is possible that the next lunar cycle will be one in which we may experience some delays with ‘new’ goals and may feel a sense of fogginess (that lovely Neptunian fog that Pisces season creates) and even a sense of feeling slightly stuck, or adrift.

Therefore as opposed to moving forwards boldly, we may instead want to harness the energies of this Mercury retrograde New Moon to ‘redo’ or ‘review’ or ‘reset’ or ‘reconcile’ (all things RE basically a la mercury retrograde) and perhaps revisit the past in some way…more on this in your Soulstrology Scopes coming soon.

Onward to the Soulstrology theme of this New Moon - dreams, reality and manifesting…

As you all probably know by now Pisces is ruled by Neptune - the god of the sea and we find Neptune right by this New Moon at 16 degrees of Pisces, meaning his energies are blended with the New Moon.

Neptune is the great dreamer, mystic and lover and in turn he is also the great creator and this planet and the sign of Pisces is associated with creativity and spirituality, and indeed taking dreams and mystical visions, and manifesting them into reality.

Neptune, just like the ocean is boundless, formless and vast.

This has its shadow and light.

The light being the capacity to dream big, indeed to dream a bigger dream, to be a visionary and creative.

However the shadow being that the god of the sea creates a foggy sea mist which can have us not seeing things, situations, people (even ourselves) clearly.

Deluding ourselves, being unrealistic, are all shadow traits of Pisces.

Neptune’s vastness is without borders or boundaries and as a result there is a risk of getting ‘lost at sea’ in the Pisces ruled parts of each of our charts.

This highlights the dilemma which many Pisceans find themselves grappling with much of the time and one which all the other zodiac signs may also grapple with in the Pisces ruled parts of each of our charts.

With Neptune essentially conjunct this New Moon we have both the light and the shadow of Neptune being the theme of the next lunar cycle.

On the one hand we may each tap into the dreamy, expansive, creativity in relation to the Pisces ruled parts of each of charts.

Seeing the vast, infinite potential, receiving mystical downloads as to what it is possible for us to both dream up and create.

On the other hand, we may be overly rose tinted. Unrealistic even. Deceiving ourselves as to what is possible and potentially being deceived by others. And consequently not manifesting, or, manifesting drama and chaos!

The cosmos is asking us to take off the rose tinted glasses, or wipe them clear of any Neptunian fog and to see things clearly for what they are. Not to lose sight of our dreams, but to keep reality in mind. To understand the practical realities (think Virgo, the opposing sign to Pisces) of what needs to happen to manifest our dreams.

Also, to enforce boundaries - a word/theme that so many Pisceans struggle with and that other zodiac signs may struggle with in relation to the Pisces ruled parts of our charts/lives.

Boundaries are the key to both freedom and manifesting and this is a theme for each of us over the next lunar cycle.

Thankfully the New Moon makes a stabilizing sextile aspect to Saturn in sensible Capricorn as well as Mars in grounded Taurus.

This helps us to tap into the pragmatic realism of sensible Saturn in Capricorn (the cosmic King of boundaries) who likes to see things in black and white and know what is needed to get from A to B to C….to eventually Z.

So too, Mars in Taurus aids us in being very grounded and taking a long term, committed, boundary loaded approach to our dreams.

Understanding that we need to take consistent practical action, be committed and take our time as we move towards manifesting our dreams into reality.

Let us remember that Chiron the wounded healer has only recently (two weeks ago) left Pisces and moved into Aries.

Even though he is in Aries he is at zero degrees and his energies blend with the start of Mercury retrograde in Pisces and are therefore significant to both this New Moon and this next lunar cycle.

When we fail to manifest in an area of our life it is normally because of wounds (Chiron).

Those wounds are often deeply ingrained within our sub-conscious mind (Pisces, who rules the sub-conscious and emotions and psychological issues which may not even be aware of).

Ultimately we manifest with our sub-conscious mind. Meaning that when we experience wounds in our lives, they stem from wounds within our psyche.

Since 2010 and Chiron’s transit of Pisces we would all have been tested and experienced wounds in the Pisces ruled parts of our lives.

Hopefully we would all have learnt great lessons too, had spiritual insights, transformed our wounds into wisdom and enforced boundaries, with ourselves and others, which should have led to success.

Now, with the aspects made by this New Moon and given this Mercury retrograde, we are each being asked to sow the seeds of a new chapter in the Pisces ruled parts of each of our charts/lives.

For some this may be practical, tangible goals and actions.

For others this may be more about our psyches and sowing the seeds of change within our consciousness so we experience a different reality.

Indeed, so we can manifest our dreams into reality.

Our job at this New Moon is to conduct a review of the Pisces ruled parts of our lives and to sow the seeds of change, not necessarily expecting huge shifts over the next month (although not counting this out - yes Mercury retrograde can slow us down but also truly does bring in miracles at times!) but to make subtle shifts within, which can flower externally post the retrograde, when we welcome in a new season (Spring for those of us in the Northern hemisphere).

Your Soulstrology Scopes will dive deep into this, but for now, allow these themes to sit with you.

Check in with yourself as to the dreams you have, your reality, the boundaries you do (or don’t) have and what might need to happen for you to manifest your dreams into reality.

Harness the power of the dark moon (the period before the New Moon where la luna disappears from the skies) and allow that emptiness and space in the heavens to help you create space internally and externally as we prepare to conduct our Pisces New Moon ritual.

More soon, but for now, see the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to this Pisces New Moon which I am including for your ease of reference.

Love,

Venus in Aquarius: March 2 – 26 2019

Ambi Sitham

Venus in Aquarius.png

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you’ve had a good start to March….I don’t know about you but I am feeling all those pre-retrograde shadow feels BIG time….argh!

More coming on this soon but in the meantime, a cosmic update for you all is that Venus has moved into Aquarius and our beloved fellow Soulstrologer Lexie Rollet of Alexandria Astrology has written this piece for our community….read on below and don’t forget to read her note for your zodiac sign - remember to read for both your Sun and Rising sign….

When Venus was in Capricorn, our relationships may have felt serious and heavy. Venus in Aquarius is a stark contrast from that! From March 2nd until March 26th, our relationships will be much more lighthearted and fun! The main thing to look out for with this, especially in our romantic relationships, is that Aquarius is even more unemotional than Capricorn. But don’t worry, there’s a lot of positivity here.

The sign of Aquarius is quite quirky and extremely fun! Although Aquarius is a fixed sign, Aquarius does not accept the status quo and relies on it’s creativity and ingenuity to come up with new and cool ideas. What some people might not know about Aquarius is that all of these cool and fresh ideas are for the benefit of the many, not the few. Aquarius naturally has a humanitarian streak, and this is often why you see them having many acquaintances and friends.

Venus, as I’m sure you already know but I’ll remind you, is all about love, harmony, balance, money, manifesting, and creating. When Venus is in Aquarius, we have to merge the Aquarius energy with this Venus energy. As a collective, (and truly as a collective; Aquarius is ALL ABOUT the collective), we will feel more social. We will want to connect with more and more people and share our friendly love with as many as possible. We will feel more inclined to serve the many, not the few, and create a balance between us all.

Aquarius doesn’t let emotion get in the way. If it did, then it wouldn’t be able to be objective with its humanitarian ideas. This is why emotions won’t be as strong during this time. So if you are coupled or dating and you feel a coldness from either side of the relationship, don’t be afraid of it! This could actually be very helpful and you both can be more of a team trying to reach a common goal.

Yes, this time is laced with socializing, friendships, and connections, but there’s one thing throwing a wrench in all of it: Mercury Retrograde. Mercury Retrograde starts on March 6th and will direct itself on March 29th, all in the sign of Pisces. As a reminder, do not be afraid of Mercury Retrograde, just be aware of it.

With Mercury in Pisces, our communication can take a turn for the emotional and sensitive, very different from the unemotional Venus we have in Aquarius. This means that you must use caution when communicating. You don’t have to stay indoors for the entire month or anything but you should REview, REflect, and REfresh before shouting anything on the rooftops. Maybe take a moment before saying anything and ask yourself, “Am I overreacting? Am I being overly emotional? Am I about to say something that could make them cry? Could this be taken the wrong way?”

Above all, make your intentions clear with any relationship. Venus in Aquarius can easily cause us to become confused if we’re in love or we’re just friends. Throw in a retrograde Mercury and then it becomes even more confusing! Just be clear and don’t assume they know where your head and heart are.

ARIES - This is a very social time for you. Spending time with larger groups and friend circles will feel really good and give you energy. Some lovely opportunities might even come your way through others. Just be cautious and not move too quickly. Do your due diligence. Also be cautious of not mistaking friendship for love.

 

TAURUS - Venus is giving you some creative and harmonious powers in your career and public persona. You might see some positive growth in your career. However, since Mercury is retrograde, just make sure you aren’t involving yourself in the office gossip. It could put you in a very sticky situation that you don’t deserve to be in.

 

GEMINI - Travel and foreign people may be quite a large focus for you over these couple of weeks. Perhaps someone from another state moves in to your apartment building and you become fast friends, or maybe your work needs you to go on a business trip. One thing is sure, this is a really great time to expand your thinking and check in with your philosophical beliefs.

 

CANCER - These next couple weeks may be all hot and steamy with Venus in your intimate house. Don’t forget, this house also governs over joint finances so there could be an opportunity for financial growth through others. However, even if you are benefiting from other people, don’t forget that you still have responsibilities.

 

LEO - Your one-to-one relationships will have a lovely dose of Venus energy. You may feel extra affectionate during this time and really crave a balance in your relationships. With the Aquarian energy, you may be more inclined to feel friendly, rather than romantic. There is nothing wrong with this, but just don’t be surprised if intentions aren’t clear from both sides.

 

VIRGO - This will most likely be an interesting time for you at work. This would be a great time to focus on creating more harmony with co-workers and making sure everyone is doing their fair share of the work. Just be cautious of retrograde Mercury. This would also be a great time to revamp your health goals and plans.

 

LIBRA - Look out! You just might take center stage! With Venus in your house of romance and fun, you may feel a pull to be way more social than you already are and crave more attention. With Mercury Retrograde, this might not be the best play, but what you can do is follow the creative energy and see what you can come up with!

 

SCORPIO - Creative energy might be encouraging you to make some changes to the aesthetics of your home. If these plans have been in the works, go for it. But if they just sprung to your mind, maybe do very small projects that can easily be reversed. Wait until Mercury is direct before doing major home reno’s. Also, this might be a great time to reconnect with a mother-figure in your life.

 

SAGITTARIUS - Depending on your specific chart, you might actually be a little frustrated during this time. Venus is providing wonderful creative energy and giving you a gift of eloquent communication. But then Mercury is retrograde, making your messages land flat. No worries, use this Venus energy for reflection and journaling. After Mercury is direct, share your ideas.

 

CAPRICORN - Venus is activating the money house for you. This could really go two ways: Venus allows you to manifest more money, or Venus could encourage you to spoil yourself and buy #allofthethings. Use your best judgement, especially since Mercury Retrograde is here. It could be a mix of both if you’ve been working hard leading up to this time.

 

AQUARIUS - What a wonderful time to be you! With Venus in your sign, you’re extra flirty, extra friendly, extra charming….#extra? Probably! You’ll definitely attract more attention during this time. Just make sure you’re not forcing it and trying to live too fast. Mercury has other ideas in mind.

 

PISCES - Venus is in your house of spirituality for these couple of weeks and Mercury is retrograde in your sign...you’ll want to give and give your love to others and be truly selfless, but sharing that message might prove difficult. It’s okay! Feel those feelings, journal it out, connect with your spirituality (this is where you are most comfortable anyway), and then when Mercury is direct again, share your realizations.



Soulstrology Scopes Full Moon in Virgo February 2019

Ambi Sitham

SS Virgo Full Moon.png

Hello lovely ones….can you feel those Full Moon feels creeping up?

This Virgo rising certainly can!

Hopefully by now you would have read the Soulstrology blog for this Full Moon and would have a better idea of the energies at play.

Now as this Full Moon really focuses on both Pisces and Virgo themes I set out below a cosmic coaching guide so you can ask yourself the pertinent questions, journal and make sense of what this Full Moon means for you in your unique chart and according to where you are on your unique journey. There is also a suggested ritual which is customized according to the specific cosmic energies.

Finally there are your Soulstrology Scopes, a channeled message for each sign (read for both your Sun and Rising sign).

As always, I include a Soulstrology zodiac guide (at the bottom of this post) but this time for both Pisces and Virgo so you can be fully aware of the life areas being highlighted by the cosmos at this time. You may want to review this before/and during your cosmic coaching homework.

  1. Review the Pisces ruled areas of life in your unique chart. Ask yourself what healing has taken place with regards to these areas of life and what healing you would still like to take place?

  2. Review the Virgo ruled areas of life in your unique chart. Check in as to where you are at with these areas of life, what needs healing/releasing and what can be brought to completion or fruition?

  3. Check the current status quo with regards to the balance between the Pisces and Virgo ruled areas of life. Is there balance? If not, what needs to happen for there to be balance? How can you harness this Full Moon to heal, release or reset so there is balance?

  4. Conduct a health review. How is your body, your mind, your soul? What is the ‘health’ of all these parts of you?

  5. Conduct a review of your daily lifestyle. How does your day to day work/service of others benefit (or burden) your health - mind, body and soul? What can you do to heal, release and reset your daily routine so you can experience better health - mind, body and soul?

  6. Write a release list. Write down anything and everything you want to release and let go of or purge at this time. Use the answers to the questions above to help guide you but also just write down anything that comes to mind.

  7. Go on a walk, get out in nature, be in earth (Virgo!). If it’s temperate enough where you are, engage in some earth grounding (walk barefoot or even just stand barefoot in nature) and engage in a walking meditation. That means being totally present of your body and your surroundings. You can do this for as little (recommend five minutes minimum) or as long as you’d like/is doable.

  8. When you return home, burn your list (preferably the night before the Full Moon just because that’s when we can feel the most intensity but there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ time to do it) and as always as you watch the flames go up in the sky, imagine the energy of the words you are burning and releasing leave your physical body.

  9. Take a salt bath or enjoy a shower. As you lay in the water of your bath, or as the water in your shower washes over you, imagine that it is washing you clean of whatever you have released and resetting you.

  10. Listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath (any that resonate will do but I always like Pluto and/or Chiron or the Earth soundbath at Full Moons as they are healing, transformative and grounding).

  11. Celebrate! You’ve just conducted a powerful Full Moon ritual!
