Summer Solstice 2019, Mercury retrograde shadow, Neptune Retrograde and *new* Soulstrology Soundbath with Pluto and Jupiter

Ambi Sitham

Summer 2019.png

Hello lovely ones and happy Summer Solstice/Neptune turns retrograde/Mercury pre-retrograde shadow!

Whew. So much going on in the cosmos and we are hot off the heels of that Sagittarius Full Moon, which I don’t think I need to tell you, was rather intense!

With this in mind and knowing the transformative energies ahead with eclipse season around the corner, I recorded a new Soulstrology Soundbath with the sounds and vibrations of Jupiter and Pluto, to help you work with both Jupiter retrograde, Pluto retrograde and the changing seasons and shifts from the eclipses.

In this recording I will be guiding and directing you as to how you can make the most out of the Soundbath before you settle in to the sounds and vibrations of Jupiter, Pluto and several crystal chakra bowls and chimes.

It is at the bottom of this post and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it for you :)

Onward to all the other cosmic events occurring within a 24 hour period on a very energetically charged day, off the back of a very powerful Full Moon…

Mercury’s pre-retrograde shadow begins just hours before this Friday’s Summer Solstice at 24 degrees of Cancer. What is interesting about the degrees of the shadows is how much they relate to the entire retrograde. Because Mercury will end his retrograde on July 31 at 24 degrees Cancer. This shows us the cosmic link between the start of the shadow period and the end of the retrograde and explains why the pre (and post) retrograde shadow (s) are so important.

I will be writing a detailed separate post on this forthcoming Mercury retrograde but for now, look at your chart to see where you may have 24 degrees of Cancer through to 4 degrees of Leo because it is within these degrees and zodiac signs that the forthcoming Mercury retrograde in Leo and Cancer will be taking place.

Also notice what may come up at this time.

With the Summer Solstice (for those of us in the Northern hemisphere) there is a surge of ‘light’ and energy which may illuminate, by way of little synchronicities, what the forthcoming Mercury retrograde represents for us individually.

Don’t overthink it, just be aware and mindful of things that pop up and/or synchronicities which take place.

As well as Mercury’s shadow beginning this day, we also have Neptune turning retrograde at the Summer Solstice for his annual backwards dance.

His retrograde takes place between 18 and 15 degrees of Pisces and will last for a five month period, ending November 27 2019.

During his retrograde we will be able to revisit these particular degrees of Pisces in our unique charts and feel Neptune’s energies infusing these life areas.

In most cases this will be the removal of the veil of Neptunian delusion (the shadow of Neptune) giving us clarity and insights as to how we can achieve the light of Neptune in these life areas - namely, spirituality, expansiveness, creativity and compassion.

It is important to note if you any planets and house cusps at these degrees of Pisces as if you do then you will feel the retrograde more than others.

Also, Pisces and Pisces risings will also generally feel the retrograde more than the rest of us, as Neptune is your ruler.

Given Jupiter’s recent square with Neptune at the Sagittarius Full Moon which probably gave us all a much needed reality check, and given that this square will be exact once again just days before the Fall Equinox in September when the God of the ocean is still in backward motion, it is fair to say that 2019’s Neptune retrograde represents reality checks in our lives and asks us to get real and see things - ourselves and situations for what they are and to have the hope, faith and spirituality of both Neptune and Jupiter, but back it up with some structure and boundaries…

The Summer Solstice itself represents the official start of the Summer, the longest day of the year, with the maximum physical light and astrologically marks the beginning of Cancer season.

As the midway point of any year, it signifies a turning point, not only because of the shift in seasons, both in nature and astrologically, but also because it reminds us that any year can be one of two halves.

In this case, 2019’s Summer Solstice also acts as a warm up for eclipse season, as we will experience the second set of 2019 eclipses starting just ten or so days later with a powerful solar eclipse in Cancer.

Soulstrology tells us that 2019’s Summer Solstice represents the energy and light we want to infuse in the rest of our 2019 experience.

We would all have had certain experiences in 2019 so far. Some ‘good’, some ‘bad’, some we may feel indifferent about. In some cases the scales will tilt further to one side of being ‘good’ or ‘bad’, or maybe even flat lining somewhat in indifference - a meh kind of, ‘it’s not that bad, but it’s not that great’ type of feeling.

Whatever you feel your 2019 has been so far, now is the time to plant the seeds within your consciousness and the physical plane, of what you want the remainder of your 2019 to be.

What words or phrase or images come to mind when you think about what you want from the rest of this year?

You can engage in a simple ritual at the Summer Solstice to connect to the new season, to mother earth and to the powerful cosmic energies at play.

I suggest a walking meditation in nature, giving thanks for all you’ve experienced so far in 2019 - the blessings, the challenges, the lessons.

You can listen to the Soulstrology Soundbath at the same time and/or listen to it afterwards.

Then think about the new season which lies ahead, which for most of us is Summer.

What do you envision yourself doing? Being? Feeling?

What words and images come to mind?

And what do they tell you about what you want from both this next season and the remainder of 2019?

My words/phrase for 2019 were ‘abundant, joyful flow’ and 2019 has certainly been that, but it’s also been VERY busy and as I envision the Summer (which also happens to be the last trimester of my pregnancy) and the rest of the year, I see a slower pace, more ease, doing less and being more.

I will be completing my ritual along with you and I will come up with my words/phrase and set my intention for 2019, but I wanted to share the above with you in case it helps you to think more deeply about the remainder of your 2019.

After your walking meditation and some time in nature, I encourage you to connect to the healing waters of Cancer season with a water ritual. For some this may be as simple as drinking a glass of water that you visualize as holding the energies of what you want the remainder of your 2019 to be.

For others this may involve a shower meditation where you visualize the water washing you clear of the first half of the year, keeping only the good and releasing the ‘bad’.

For bath lovers like me, this may be a great opportunity for a salt bath soak, a time to let your muscles unwind, as you allow the healing salt waters to cleanse you physically and energetically.

As always, your ritual is one you can customize so you feel it serves you best, but the above is a guideline for those seeking a little direction.

Happy Summer Solstice 2019!

May the light shine bright in each of our lives, guiding us to our next chapter and season of life.

And so it is.

Love,

Full Moon Sagittarius Soulstrology Scopes

Sagittarius Full Moon.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost ‘galactic center activation’ Full Moon….

Below are your cosmic coaching questions for this Sagittarius Full Moon cycle.

The Soulstrology zodiac guide at the bottom of this post will remind you of where this Full Moon falls in your unique chart, based on your Sun and/or Rising sign.

  1. Reviewing the Sagittarius ruled parts of life in your chart, take note of the ‘good’ that has occurred in the last six months - what has healed, what has improved, what have you achieved, what can you celebrate? Make a list (and you can include general life areas in this list too) This is your Full Moon gratitude list.

  2. Now take note of what else needs healing, improving, or releasing in these life areas. Do you have any fears in these areas of life? Do you have recurring negative beliefs about these life areas? Make a list (and you can include general life areas in this list too). This is your Full Moon release list.

  3. Once again, focusing on these life areas, check in and ask yourself, on a scale of 1-10 how optimistic and hopeful (think a la Jupiter) do you feel about these life areas? On a scale of 1-10 how pragmatic/practical/realistic are you being about these life areas? (think a la Saturn). Once you have these lists, ask yourself, how you can improve your scoring, even a point or so, to be both more optimistic and more practical? Take notes/make action points. This is your Full Moon ‘to do’ list.

  4. Light some sage, or a candle and listen to the Pluto Mercury Soundbath (at bottom of this post). Once you are done, allow yourself to automatically write in your journal, or a piece of paper. Just allow what comes out, to come out. If nothing flows automatically, then revert to questions 1,2 and 3 and see if any further insights come your way, and if so, jot them down.

  5. Burn your Full Moon release list first, and as you watch the words on your list go up in flames, imagine that what you wish to release, is being released, what you wish to heal or improve, is being healed or improved, what you fear is being dissolved, just as the flames turn the paper and words into ashes, the negative thoughts and feelings are leaving your mind and energetic being.

  6. Drink a glass of water, rehydrate, take a few deep cleansing breaths in and out and light some palo santo or incense (if you have neither, then a scented candle will do), take a salt bath or shower and visualize the water cleansing you both physically and energetically and then listen to the Jupiter Earth Soundbath (at bottom of this post).

  7. Once you have finished, burn your Full Moon gratitude list and as you see the flames and ashes from your list go upwards, imagine that they reflect your optimism and hope for both the Sagittarius ruled parts of your chart/life and life in general.

  8. Once you have finished, go back to your ‘to do’ list - the answers to number 3 above and read through your action points for the Sag ruled parts of your life and how you are going to infuse these areas of life with both optimism, backed by practical action.

  9. Repeat and/or write down the Full Moon Mantras and keep these in your mind as you complete your ritual.

  10. Celebrate! You’ve just carried out a powerful ritual which should help you connect further to yourself, the areas of life highlighted at this powerful Sagittarius Full Moon and the ongoing Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.


SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON MANTRAS

I am open to whatever the lunar spotlight illuminates for me, knowing that in truth, whether it is ‘good’ or ‘bad’, it is part of my process

I embrace all of my feelings at this time, including any frustrations, fears and doubts

I do this trusting that any ‘negative’ feelings serve a powerful purpose in my life showing me what I may need to heal and release, in order to receive

I connect to my inner faith and optimist and choose to see the glass as half full and to believe that there is always a positive step to be taken forwards to a brighter future

With this in mind, I take comfort and pride in my rituals at this time, knowing they are helping me work with the cosmic energies and that my job at this time is to do the work and trust that the cosmos will respond to my efforts

I trust in myself and my abilities and I have faith in the process of life and in a universe who may work in mysterious ways but is ultimately benefic to me and my life

I know my faith will be rewarded in divine timing with the manifestation of the fruits of my desires

And so it is



Love,

Ambi x

Full Moon in Sagittarius June 2019: Faith, fear, feelings and facts...

Ambi Sitham

Full Moon Sag.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Full Moon!

Whew, I don’t know about you, but I am FEELING all those Full Moon feels…this may have something to do with my Sagittarius Sun sign, but I suspect that is in fact more to do with all that is going on in the cosmos…

We have a powerful Full Moon on Monday June 17, Mercury’s pre-retrograde shadow starts on June 20 and on June 21 we have the powerful combo of Neptune turning retrograde and the Summer Solstice.

And of course let us not forget that eclipse season is around the corner with a powerful total solar eclipse on July 2 and a partial lunar eclipse on July 16.

Oh, with Mercury turning retrograde in between eclipses….

Feeling all those feels?! It’s normal.

It’s going to be an intense six weeks ahead.

And I will be sharing more on how to best manage this in the July cosmic update as well as the Solstice, eclipse season and Mercury retrograde posts.

But for now, let us focus on this Sagittarius Full Moon and how best each of us can work with the somewhat intense, and conflicting, energies.

This Full Moon falls at 25 degrees of Sagittarius and takes place at 1.30am PT on Monday June 17 2019 (adjust for your timezone to know the exact time of the Full Moon for you).

You can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see where this Full Moon is falling in your unique chart.

Just read for your Sun and Rising sign and those are the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in your chart.

As always, if you are more familiar with your chart, you can look at the exact degree of this Full Moon and where it may be falling in your chart and/or any planets you may have between 22 - 27 of Sagittarius as these will be activated by this Full Moon.

What this means is the themes of those planets/traits will be brought to the surface in the lunar illumination, adding to the intensity of this Full Moon, so do take note of them.

What makes this Sagittarius Full Moon all the more intense is the fact that the Full Moon falls conjunct (just one degree away!) from the galactic center!

The galactic center is the center of our milky way galaxy and is considered to be a very powerful energy portal as the source of the most gravitational energy.

When it was discovered it was found it fell at 26 degrees of Sagittarius (although now has shifted to 27 degrees or thereabouts).

If you have anything at, or around this degree in your natal chart, you have a very specific mission and purpose in this lifetime, one centered around being a source of wisdom, information, hope and inspiration for others and channeling for others in some way.

But either way, for any of us, we will have the galactic center degrees of Sagittarius falling somewhere and by understanding where this is, and how this is aspected to other planets in our chart, we can understand ourselves, our soul’s purpose and our lives so much better.

The galactic center is the source of the most gravitational energy in the cosmos and in our charts, is the source of deep knowledge, inspiration and power.

We will explore the Galactic center further in the future, but for now, for the purposes of this Full Moon, all we need to know is that this is an EXTRA potent Full Moon, one that is literally connected to the center of our milky way galaxy, a hugely powerful energy portal, making this Full Moon a very powerful mid year cosmic window of opportunity.

But turning now to the title of this post and the Soulstrology theme of ‘Faith, fear, feelings and facts…’ and how this plays into this powerful Full Moon conjunct the galactic center.

You all probably know the traits of Sagittarius by now and like every sign, it has its light and shadow.

Faith is one of the most recognizable and positive traits of Sagittarius, but this faith can be sometimes dogmatic and obsessive, a preacher, rather than a true teacher.

Nonetheless, with Jupiter in Sagittarius this year, Soulstrology has already told us (for those of you who’ve been Members for a while you may remember this from the Jupiter in Sagittarius post last year) that one of the ways in which we will best engage the light and tap into all the blessings of Jupiter in Sagittarius, is through adopting the Sagittarius trait of faith.

Faith is therefore a theme of this Full Moon, with the lunar spotlight shining brightly on our faith, checking in and our belief systems, and whether we truly have faith in ourselves, others, our lives and indeed the cosmos.

The day before the Full Moon, Jupiter in Sagittarius makes a square aspect to Neptune in Pisces.

This aspect is tense and bring things up in the lunar spotlight, namely showing us where perhaps we have been too trusting, too full of faith, without seeing reality/facts (shadow of Neptune/Pisces is deception, being overly rose tinted and naive) and/or in someway testing our faith.

This rather tense aspect is leveled out somewhat by the another powerful aspect which is Saturn in Capricorn sextiling Neptune in Pisces.

This is a very grounding aspect which is exact the day after the Full Moon, but we can tap into on the Full Moon itself to find that balance between reality/facts (Saturn in sensible Capricorn) and our dreams (Neptune in Pisces) and to understand that faith backed by the substance of action, hard work and foraging through facts, can help us to achieve our dreams through our unique spiritual practices.

However, Mercury and Mars conjunct each other in sensitive Cancer and right by the fated North Node, also in Cancer, can mean that our feelings and our fears bubble up rather forcefully to the surface at this Full Moon.

There is purpose to this process and any pain we may feel.

The North node is about what is outside our comfort zone and what we need to reach for and step into, in order to fulfill our destiny.

In Cancer this includes our feelings and emotions and both owning them and understanding their purpose in our lives to help us to heal, transform and ultimately receive.

Both Mercury and Mars oppose stern Saturn in Capricorn meaning we may feel deluged by our emotions - our thoughts and feelings (Mercury/Mars in Cancer) and may have to face certain reality checks (Saturn in Capricorn) in the lunar spotlight (Full Moon) which makes us fearful and indeed questioning both facts and our faith!

‘Urgh’ you may be thinking! This doesn’t sound very fun. It fact, it sounds rather full on

But I invite you to think about this differently, in light of all else happening in the cosmos and the fact that this powerful Full Moon is activating the galactic center - the source of so much energy and power, in our lives and the world at large.

Life isn’t supposed to be an easy glide from success to success, achievement to achievement, miracle to miracle, to have it all, be it all, do it all, all the time (this kind of way of trying to operate is some of the shadow of Sagittarius of living it too large).

Rather, life is a series of ups and downs, trials and rewards, breakdowns and breakthroughs.

We are supposed to traverse all of this journey called life and embrace it all for what it is, knowing the highs will be followed by lows, that rock bottom will be followed by being propelled back upwards, that our faith will get tested time and time again, that fear will raise its head, that feelings you thought you had dealt with, or didn’t realize you had, will spring forth.

It is traversing this journey, feeling all the feels, falling, failing, losing our faith, sorting what is fact from fiction, that will allow us to flourish.

It is a cycle we will repeat over and over again until we depart this earth plane.

And it is going through this process, embracing this cycle, which will allow us to find ourselves, our faith in ourselves, others and life, and ultimately to flourish once again.

It is this process which allows us to connect to the galactic center and to our center - our soul, our unique journey.

We must not fear it, or avoid it, we must face it and flow (and sometimes get whirred up in a frenzy!) through it.

This Sagittarius Full Moon is so powerful on so many counts.

It comes at a very significant time in the year, as we are each on the cusp of a new chapter and season.

But we must understand the themes at play and embrace them, within both our consciousness and on the physical plane as they perhaps bring us challenges leading up to and at this Full Moon.

Your Soulstrology Scopes, which are coming soon, will help you to work with the Full Moon on a much more practical level, but for now, let the contents of this post digest within your consciousness and review the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in your unique chart and/or triggered by this Full Moon and allow your soul to connect to the powerful energies at play.

Love,

Venus in Gemini: June 9 - July 3 2019

Ambi Sitham

Venus in Gemini.png

Hello and happy Sunday!

Today, Venus moves out of Taurus and into the Gemini ruled part of the zodiac where she will be infusing her energies for the next few weeks.

Lexie Rollet of Alexandria Astrology is back with her insights on this transit for us.

We hope you enjoy and it helps you work with this transit!

Love,

Ambi and Lexie xo

On June 9th, Venus will officially be in Gemini and it will remain there until July 3rd. And let me just start by saying, Venus in Gemini has some exuberating differences from Venus in Taurus!

Venus in Taurus is very much in the body, it’s tactile, it’s physical. Venus in Gemini is all in the mind! There’s a pretty good chance that we will all need to be intellectually enamored before we hop into anyone’s bed during this transit. If you’re single and mingling, this is like a built in test gifted to you by the Universe - start with some intellectually stimulating conversations about anything and everything and if the other person can’t keep up or bores you out of your mind, it’s a no-go!

Gemini as a sign is known to lose interest pretty quickly so you might find that if you are not mentally stimulated by someone or something, you might be motivated to move on. If it’s a THING, screw it! Move on! Gemini season, especially coupled with Venus in Gemini, is all about following your interests unapologetically. But if it’s a PERSON? First, consider that the energy surrounding us right now is encouraging us to move from interest to interest. Second, consider the history of the relationship with that person. Basically what I’m saying is don’t make a hasty decision on someone who’s been in your life through thick and thin!

Venus definitely has a say in our money, so in terms of Venus in Gemini...well we could be making some hasty decisions with our spending, too. Gemini is a little careless with money, so just be aware of your spending habits during this time. This is a notorious time for people to get a wild hair that they’re SUPER interested in a new hobby and then buy everything “needed” for that hobby. For this example, let’s take photography. You might decide that since you’re SOOO INTO photography because you’ve taken like, 10 really great photos on iPhone Portrait mode, that it’s time to invest in ALL the photography gear!!

Probably not a good idea. If you are thinking about investing some cash into something, please for the love of all that is beautiful in this world, consider the PREVIOUS longevity of this thought. This is to say, don’t think about the future longevity of this investment, because that’s how you’re going to rationalize making the purchase. Nope, you’ve got to think about how long you’ve been dreaming of making this purchase, or investing in this hobby, or eyeing those killer shoes. If the amount of time is a reasonable match for said investment (i.e. a whole year of time and effort invested into a hobby or daydreaming about those shoes for two months) and you actually have the money to spend on this AND pay your bills, then it’s fair game.

 

All in all, Venus in Gemini is really about having fun, following your interests, having strong mental connections with people, and connecting with your friends. If you’re doing that, you’re living this transit up to its highest good!

 

Here are a few things for each of the signs to focus on during this transit.

Remember, read for both your Sun and Rising signs:

 

ARIES - People might be even more drawn to your ideas this month as Venus is giving you the power of appeal in the your house of communication. Being social and exploring thoughts with other people is a good thing for you that might even bring new opportunities.

TAURUS - Remember everything that above about money? That especially applies to you as Venus is in your money house this month. It is key for you to find the balance: this is a great time to allow those interests to make you money, but don’t go overboard on spending.

GEMINI - Venus is in your first house this month, making you more charming than ever! Many people will be drawn to you during this time which is likely your preference anyway. Use this time to make connections, have intellectual conversations, and follow your interests.

CANCER - Venus is in your spiritual and secretive house. Use this time to follow deep creative and spiritual urges, perhaps you might find a new practice that feels really good to you. Just be aware that this around this time, there’s more of a likelihood to get into an affair.

LEO - Friends, friends, and more friends! This is THE time to socialize, Leo! Venus is bringing her gifts to your house of community, hopes, and dreams. This would also be a great time to think about what it is you want for the future, and then try that out to see how you like it.

VIRGO - Time to shine Virgo! Venus is lighting up your career and public status house. You might find yourself in the limelight a little more with your Venusian charm. This is a great time to use Venus’ gift of balance and justice within your career.

LIBRA - Venus is in your house of mental exploration and travel this month. Connecting with people from other walks of life or other places in the world could bring you great interest and new opportunities. Use this time to explore new philosophies and ways of thinking.

SCORPIO - Feeling a little more frisky than usual? You might find it very easy to find someone (or multiple someones) to roll around in bed with during this month. Just make sure the desire is in the mind first and if you’re already coupled, this would be a great time to try new things in the bedroom.

SAGITTARIUS - Okay Sag, Venus is in your partnership house so everything written above about relationships REALLY applies to you. There could definitely be a focus on partnership for you during this month but be aware that your interests may fade quickly. Is it justified? Or are you being hasty?

CAPRICORN - With Venus in your house of health and daily work, this could be really great time to make worthwhile connections in the office for the purpose of creating a better work environment. Also, use this time to explore new health practices instead of falling into the overindulgent Venus trap.

AQUARIUS - Many interests, right? Your mind will not stop spewing creative idea after creative idea. But which one to choose?! Um, can’t it be all of them? Just trying something out doesn’t mean it’s your forever.

PISCES - House parties!! Okay, it doesn’t have to be a wild house party, but with Venus in your house of home, you may feel more inclined to host a gathering of sorts in your space. Perhaps throw a get together just for the purpose of intellectual conversations with one another.

 

 

June 2019: The jewels within...

Ambi Sitham

JUNE COSMIC UPDATE.png

Hello lovely ones and happy last day of May and welcome to June 2019!

Here we are, halfway through 2019 on the cusp of a new season with the Solstice just weeks away and with eclipse season beckoning….more on the latter next month… but for now, let’s focus on what June has to offer.

The month starts off with a beautiful New Moon in Gemini on the 3rd (log in for your New Moon Soulstrology blog and Scopes!).

The outer planets of Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn continue their retrograde and later in June on the same day as the Summer Solstice (and the start of Cancer season) Neptune joins the gaggle of planets in retrograde as he too begins his annual backwards dance.

The intensity of the Pluto/Saturn conjunction which we would have all felt for the last couple of months, will lessen this month as Saturn moves further away from Pluto in the zodiac as his backwards motion picks up speed.

This should offer some relief, although the Saturn/South Node conjunction and Saturn/North Node opposition continues , so there is still a rather karmic, Saturn esque feel to events which take place this month.

Nonetheless Soulstrology tells us June 2019 offers us a powerful opportunity to discover hidden gems.

Whether this is within our consciousness/psyche, perhaps through retrograde revelations, or whether this is on the external plane where we discover that in truth there are hidden blessings and opportunities in our lives, this is the month where if we seek, we shall find the jewels within ourselves and our lives, just waiting to be discovered.

Our job this month is to open our eyes fully and to cast our gaze wider and deeper than what our two human eyes can perhaps perceive. To allow the light and intensity of the Solstice, as well as the pre-eclipse energies (eclipses often trigger events in our lives one month prior, or post, the actual eclipse itself) to help us tap into those jewels waiting to be found and celebrated in our lives.

We can harness the airy energy of Gemini season to help us do this as it will focus our minds and energize us over the first three weeks of the month in the build up to the Solstice when the zodiac seasons change and the intuitive watery depth of Cancer season will begin to prepare us for the eclipses.

New seasons bring new beginnings and eclipses bring shifts.

Some of these new beginnings and shifts may not look like glimmering gems, but if we dig a bit deeper, we will see that they are gifts and blessings helping us to transition into a new chapter in our lives…

June 2019 Soulstrology Mantras and cosmic dates for your diaries below…

Mantra of the Month

I open my eyes to all the gifts I have, whether these are internal or external

I know that just as many jewels are hidden among the dirt, so too many blessings are wrapped up in the grit of challenge

With this in mind I keep my eyes, mind and heart open to all the jewels surrounding me and within me, knowing if I seek them, I will uncover them

I am open, I am optimistic, I see the glass as half full

I strive to feel good, knowing this is one of the first steps to seeing and experiencing good

Cosmic dates for your diary below with details of Soulstrology blogs, Soulstrology Scopes and a new Soulstrology Soundbath to be enjoyed!

May we each have the openness and vision to see all the jewels within and without, and may these gems help us to transition into a beautiful new season.

Wishing you all a wonderful month.

Love,

Ambi x

Hello and happy almost New Moon in Gemini!

I hope that you will have read the Gemini New Moon blog post to understand the themes which are at play at this particular New Moon and over the next lunar cycle.

That information will help you to answer the following cosmic coaching questions and to work with the energies of this lunation.

  1. Reviewing the Gemini ruled parts of life in your unique chart (use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below, reading for your Sun and Rising sign) journal on your satisfaction levels in terms of what you are currently manifesting in these life areas. On a scale of 1-10 how happy and fulfilled do you feel?

  2. Now review what your dialogue is regarding these areas of life. What is your internal dialogue - in other words the conversation you have with yourself - and what is your external dialogue - in other words - what you say about these areas of life to others?

  3. Take note of any and all differences between your dialogue (whether internal or external) and your actions regarding these areas of life. Ask yourself honestly if you are truly walking your talk, or if there is a lack of follow through regarding your ‘talk’ and what you verbalize that you desire regarding these areas of life.

  4. Journal as to what you can shift regarding either/both your communications/dialogue regarding these areas of life and/or your actions. The idea is that you either talk a different talk (that is more aligned with your actions and therefore has more integrity) or you really begin to walk your talk and take action that is truly aligned with your words.

  5. Listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath (there are a few appropriate ones listed below for your ease of reference) and then focus once again on the Gemini ruled parts of life in your chart/life as well as the natural zodiac Gemini areas of life (communication, your voice in all formats, short distance travel, siblings, community) Keeping in mind your responses to questions 1-4 above start thinking (and journaling) about what you would like to manifest in these areas of life over the next lunar month.

  6. Write up a manifestation list for the month ahead and write at least ten things you wish to manifest in the next lunar cycle. Think also about one big shift you would like to manifest in the next six months by the corresponding Gemini Full Moon. When you write this list make sure there is a correlation between your talk and your walk. In other words make sure for every thing you wish to manifest there is a physical action that is to be taken.

  7. Listen to the New Moon Manifestation meditation to help you visualize the manifestation of the desires on your list, perhaps reading the Gemini New Moon Mantras and/or the channeled word (s) for your sign.

  8. Celebrate! You have carried out a powerful cosmic coaching and New Moon ritual!

New Moon in Gemini: Success and stature comes by walking your talk

Ambi Sitham

New Moon In Gemini.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon!

The New Moon falls at 12 degrees of Gemini and takes place on Monday June 3 at 3.02am PT (adjust for your timezone as always).

Check your Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see where this New Moon falls in your unique chart.

I get asked this question a lot, so wanted to reiterate this point now, which is, regardless of if you have any planets in a sign, a New/Full Moon will always fall somewhere in your chart.

If you’re new to Soulstrology I understand it can be confusing to try and read your chart and that is why we always provide a guide as to every transit or moon cycle so you can simply check for your Sun and Rising sign and know that regardless of what your chart appears to show, the guide will tell you where a particular transit or lunar event is taking place in your unique chart.

If you’re more of a Soulstrology pro (and don’t worry for beginners, everyone gets there slowly!) then you can check where exactly 12 degrees of Gemini falls in your chart, as well as any planets or house cusps in your chart which are between 10 and 14 degrees of Gemini as these will be activated by the New Moon.

Onward to the general themes which are impacting each of us at this New Moon which we must all consider when we are working with the New Moon energies over the next lunar cycle.

In the natural zodiac Gemini rules the third house. The house of communication, our mind, our thought process and our intellect. Early education is also ruled by this house, as well as our relationships with our siblings and our neighbors/local community. Short trips and travel (more locally, within our own country and/or state) are also covered by this house.

As the celestial energies catch up with the times, Soulstrology tells us that this house is also the house of our voice/our communication in all forms and all related projects - so this can cover our written voice, spoken, song, social media, blogs, an app etc.

Gemini, like Virgo, is ruled by Mercury, so this sign’s energies are very much cerebral and mentally focused as opposed to physically focused.

This is exacerbated by the fact that Gemini is an air sign. Air signs tend to be the thinkers of the zodiac, they are both intellectual and curious and are good at abstract, rational thinking.

Gemini is also a mutable sign, and is known as the sign of the ‘twins’, reflecting the duality of a Gemini.

They often have two very different sides to their personalities and sometimes this can be their shadow - the two faces of Gemini or rather being ‘two faced’ with a negative connotation.

However, this duality also extends to their capabilities and means they are often skilled in multiple areas of expertise.

Where each of us has Gemini ruling our unique charts, and any planets we may have in Gemini, are where we too may have the traits described above and the capability of duality.

This is something that we will be exploring further in our Soulstrology Scopes with our cosmic coaching and custom ritual, but for now, let us focus on the aspects of this particular Gemini New Moon and the unique Soulstrology theme.

As you hopefully know by now at a New Moon the Sun and Moon join together (called a conjunction) in the same sign of the zodiac. So when we refer to the New Moon we are referring to the joint energies of both the Sun and Moon.

Often at a New Moon aspects are made by both the Sun and Moon together to other planets and we explore these and what they mean for that specific New Moon and lunar cycle.

Sometimes the New Moon does not make any specific aspects to other planets but other celestial bodies are making significant aspects to each other at this time.

Soulstrology tells us that either the aspects made to a New Moon, or other specific celestial aspects made at the time of the New Moon offer us the unique energies of that New Moon and serve as a guide as to how best to work with the lunation (this means the lunar cycle which the New Moon is bringing).

This New Moon itself does not actually make any specific strong aspects but there are some very interesting aspects made by other celestial bodies, namely Saturn, Neptune, Venus, Pluto and the North node (all big cosmic players!) which create the Soulstrology theme for this Gemini New Moon of June 2019.

Venus (in grounded earthy Taurus) makes a very harmonious trine aspect to powerful Pluto in Capricorn.

This results in a flowing energy regarding finances, relationships, creativity, socializing and transformation, soulful power and ultimately change.

This is a very grounded energy (thanks to the two Earth signs of Taurus and Capricorn) and is also a very powerful energy as Venus is one of the cosmic benefics and Pluto is the cosmic powerhouse.

Meanwhile stern Saturn is in Capricorn (his home position where he excels) and as we all probably know by now is the cosmic headmaster who can give us a hard time, but also offers us great structure and helps us climb the greatest heights, is making a beautiful sextile aspect to dreamy Neptune in Pisces.

While this aspect is between two very different signs and planets - Neptune is boundless and vast - Saturn is all about boundaries and structure - Capricorn is a grounded, logical Earth sign - Pisces is an emotional, sensitive, intuitive water sign, the sextile aspect means that these two energies can work very well together - bringing together the best of both.

This aspect is about being both practical and creative, having a dream and being a visionary but also taking the steps to actualize that dream. Following your intuition, your gut, your heart, your feels, but keeping your head.

Understanding that pragmatism and practicalities play as important part in the manifestation of our vision as the dream itself.

Next is the lovely trine aspect between Neptune in Pisces and the North Node in Cancer.

As you probably know by now, the North Node indicates our destiny and future.

The North Node is what we are supposed to step into, what may not always come easily to us but what is our fate and will bring us blessings, so long as we reach to step into it - which is not always easy as it is outside of our comfort zone.

Through this trine aspect we can harness the creative, spiritual dreams of Neptune and turn them into reality (through the assistance of Saturn) so we step into our future (the North Node).

Neptune makes a helpful sextile aspect to the South Node.

The South Node represents our past, what we are used to, what comes easily, what is our comfort zone, as well as sometimes our past karma and baggage.

Through this harmonious Neptune/South Node aspect we can harness the energies of the past (South Node) to help us create our future (North Node) and to make our dreams (Neptune) a reality (Saturn).

All of this brings me nicely to the Soulstrology theme of this Gemini New Moon, that success and stature comes by walking our talk….

As we all hopefully know by now, Gemini is the thinker and communicator. But what we may not know is that the shadow of Gemini can be to be all talk but not enough action.

Ultimately we are what we do, not what we say we will do.

We can talk the talk, but if we don’t walk it, if we don’t take practical action and steps towards our goals, we will never achieve them.

This may seem obvious and we may not even realize that we are not walking our talk, but for many of us, this is the block and gap between where we are and where we want to be.

Soulstrology tells us that the aspects of this New Moon ask each of us to be honest about where we are at, and where we want to be.

For us to understand that there are powerful planetary energies at play which assist us in pushing forwards into the future we desire, but for us to equally understand that we must take action, we must find the bridge between dreams and practicalities, in order to make our visions a reality.

Transformation is a regular theme of our Soulstrology work and what it looks like will be different for each of us and as always our Soulstrology Scopes will help us achieve this.

For those of us willing to do the work, we may find we enjoy the benefits over the next lunation, with the Solstice providing a powerful pre-eclipse portal.

Success and stature awaits, however that may uniquely look for each of us, but we must walk our talk to get there.

More to come on your Soulstrology Scopes soon….

For now, let the themes of this blog digest, review the Gemini ruled parts of life, both in the natural zodiac as identified above and in your unique chart as set out in the Soulstrology zodiac guide below.

Love,

Ambi x

Mars in Cancer: May 17 - July 1

MARS IN CANCER TRANSIT

Cosmic insights courtesy of Lexie Rollet of Alexandria Astrology

Mars in Cancer is going to feel so much different from Mars in Gemini. We are moving away from a time of flighty energy and hasty decisions and into a time of mood-based action with a long-term view.

This placement is very interesting in that Mars is not particularly comfortable in Cancer. These two entities really challenge the other. Mars pushes Cancer to become more energetic, take actions, and make decisions. And Cancer encourages Mars to consider what the heart wants and to get more in tune with our emotions.

During this time, you might find it a little difficult to take actions on anything you’re not in the mood to do. This can obviously be challenging, especially when it’s something you absolutely need to do, whether it be for work or you know, #adulting. But in cases where it might not be absolutely necessary to do, perhaps honor that mood. Maybe you’ll find that some of the things that have been filling up your schedule really aren’t all that necessary in the grand scheme of everything.

Cancer is highly focused on the long-term so the actions you may be compelled to take may actually fuel that long-term view you have for your life. This would be an EXCELLENT time to focus on doing the things that your future self would deeply thank you for. For example, if you have envisioned yourself to be a person who takes their health seriously but you’ve struggled to make it a true focus, this would be a good time to practice a new routine that would help you accomplish that.

Now, this isn’t to say you should go crazy adding a ton of new things into your life just for the sake of what it will do for future You. This is more about planting the seeds to begin on that journey. Cancer isn’t particularly high energy and with all of the Taurus energy that we are surrounded by right now, we really aren’t in a time to be doing all kinds of things at once.

The combination of Venus in Taurus and Mars in Cancer is actually quite beautiful as it creates a sextile between the two. While Venus was in Aries and Mars was in Gemini, we had masculine energy impacting our actions, but now we have feminine energy. This feminine energy will allow us to connect to our intuition more and maybe soften us around the edges where we may have been a little too harsh. We can also connect with our emotions more where perhaps recently we’ve been ignoring our feelings.

One word of caution is that Cancer can be overly protective and defensive and do things out of defense that it will regret later. With Mars in this sign, that defensive energy gets super-charged! So, when you feel yourself going immediately on the defense, ask yourself if that is truly what the situation is calling for. In some cases, it might!

One thing you don’t want to mess with right now is family. That’s Cancer’s hottest button. A great example of a super-charged Mars in Cancer would be Daenerys when it comes to her dragons. Her dragons have been her children ever since the eggs were given to her and we have seen her do some pretty instinctual, hasty, emotionally-charged, sometimes non-strategic things as a reaction to her dragons.

Here are a few things to think about for each Sun/Rising sign from May 17th to July 2nd:

Aries/Aries rising: Long-term planning and action items around the home for this transit. Perhaps you take major steps in buying a home or becoming more independent in your living situation. Just be wary of arguments within the family.

 

Taurus/Taurus rising: You might find yourself being more mentally alert with Mars in your communication house. Certainly there is more drive to share your message and point of view but with that comes the potential of becoming defensive and argumentative.

 

Gemini/Gemini rising: Mars is considered the manifesting planet and it just so happens to be in your personal finances house. This would be a good time to think about a long-term plan about your money or make a genuine effort to set yourself up for financial growth.

 

Cancer/Cancer rising: This may be quite a dynamic time for you with Mars in the house of self. Mars will give you a little more assertiveness, help you claim independence where necessary, and charge you up with confidence. The bedroom might see some action, as well. ;-)

 

Leo/Leo rising: Mars is in the 12th house of spirituality for you, Leo. This may encourage you to become a bit secretive and reserved during this time. Take advantage of that in order to connect with yourself on a deeper level. This would be a great time to explore your intuition.

 

Virgo/Virgo rising: You could find yourself being called to lead amongst your friends during this transit. Mars is in your community house but it’s also the hopes and dreams house. So with that, start taking the necessary actions that will help you achieve the biggest dreams you have for your life.

 

Libra/Libra rising: Your career and public life will experience a dose of energy. Think about the long-term goals you have for your career and start doing the things that will ultimately help you get there. Remember, you won’t get there overnight so no use in getting frustrated about it now.

 

Scorpio/Scorpio rising: Mars is giving you energy around your views, philosophies, and higher ideals. This is great to work with for getting deeper rooted into your philosophy but this also opens you up to defending it. Just be aware and don’t waste your breath where it isn’t needed.

 

Sagittarius/Sagittarius rising: The energy planet is in the powerful and intimate 8th house for you. Yes, a high sex drive is to be expected but also energy around healing can also be expected. An odd mix but definitely an 8th house topic: long-term financial planning. Maybe double check your plan or put one in place.

 

Capricorn/Capricorn rising: Mars is in your partnership house so first of all: sex ;-) But second, this may be a time in which you look at the long-term vision you have for your relationships and making movements in them that align with that vision. However, check your defenses before arguing.

 

Aquarius/Aquarius rising: That bit earlier in this article about health is definitely for you, Aquarius. Mars is in your house of health and daily work so use this time to focus on any long-term health goals you might have and to get stuff done at work.

 

Pisces/Pisces rising: Mars may be encouraging you to be a bit competitive during this transit. This could come out in creative endeavors, romantic encounters, or even an athletic competition. One thing is for sure: follow that creative streak if it finds you.

 

 

Full Moon Scorpio Soulstrology Scopes

Ambi Sitham

Scorpio Full Moon.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Scorpio Full Moon.

As I write the Moon is waxing to fullness and shining brightly in the evening skies.

Soon she will be full, at her peak and most potent.

You may have already tapped into those Full Moon feels…and what this Full Moon represents for you, whether that is celebratory or cleansing, in some cases perhaps both!

Regardless, whether you choose to do this before the Full Moon, on the day of, or the day after, I encourage you to answer the cosmic coaching homework and engage in the Scorpio Full Moon ritual below (tweak the ritual as serves you). Please note the cosmic coaching may make more sense in the context of the Scorpio Full Moon blog, so I advise reading that prior to, or in conjunction with this post and particularly when answering questions below thinking about that concept of mind over matter.

  1. Review the areas of life ruled by Scorpio, namely sex, intimacy, money (particularly joint finances) death (can be literal or metaphorical), merging with another, control/jealousy issues. What would you like to release/transform/heal about these areas of life? Make notes.

  2. Again thinking about the above areas of life, is there anything can you celebrate? Think of things which you may have closure on (always a reason to celebrate) or things which have come to fruition or celebratory completion. Make notes.

  3. Review the life areas ruled by Scorpio in your unique chart (both your solar and natal chart, so based on your Sun and Rising sign). Once again ask yourself what you would like to release/transform/heal about these areas of life. Make notes.

  4. Again thinking about the above areas of life, check if there is anything you can celebrate? Keeping in mind the notes in question 2 above.

  5. Listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath. I have included a few at the bottom of this post, the new Soundbath while recorded is being edited, but unfortunately due to a true Scorpio Full Moon event my editor has been waylaid with a family emergency, so it may come out shortly after the Full Moon itself.. Whichever Soundbath (or there is also a Full Moon release meditation where I guide you through releasing!) you choose I recommend you to think about what it is that you want to achieve through the meditation. Set your intention before listening. Is it clarity you are seeking? Peace of mind? To be grounded? To heal? Set your intention, whatever it may be, then pop your headphones in, light some sage/palo santo or a candle and listen to the Soundbath.

  6. After the Soundbath see if you have any new insights. Is there something else to add to your celebration/completion list? Is there something to add to your healing/releasing/transforming list? Add/amend appropriately.

  7. Write up a Full Moon letter/list to the cosmos. Write what you are giving thanks for and are grateful for (all those things on your celebration/completion list) then write what you would like help transforming, healing, releasing, letting go of.

  8. Burn the list, best done outside if possible, or at least having looked up at the fullness of the moon for a few minutes. As the list goes up in flames give thanks for all that you and the cosmos have co-created with regards to the areas of life being illuminated by the Full Moon and surrender and give thanks for the healing, releasing and transforming of all the matters you identified and wrote on your letter/list (the answers to questions 1 and 3 above)

  9. Get outside and ground! We are in Taurus season and with the moon in Scorpio some of the antidote to the watery intensity of the Full Moon is to ground in earth. If you are down for some barefoot earthing (literally standing or walking barefoot on grass/sand or earth) then do that. If not, just do your best to get outside and ground in nature for a few minutes. The greener the better!

  10. Complete your Full Moon ritual with a water ceremony to honor the fluid power of Scorpio. Either take a shower visualizing the water washing away any remnants of what you wish to release and/or take a bath (with epsom salts ideally) to soak away any of those Full Moon feels.

  11. Listen to one more Soundbath when you are done. I recommend the Jupiter and Earth soundbath which was originally recorded for a Full Moon but has a very grounding and healing effect.

  12. Check out your Soulstrology Scopes (channeled messages, read for your Sun and Rising sign) and Full Moon mantras below!



SOULSTROLOGY SCORPIO FULL MOON MANTRAS


I trust that deaths and rebirths are endless cycles of life and embrace that there are seasons for grieving and endings as there are seasons for celebrating and new beginnings

I embrace the season I find myself in, with gratitude for all that I have, compassion for all that remains to be healed and hope in all that is yet to transform

I know that there are certain situations in which my only job is to let go, relinquish control and choose to trust that in the end, the right outcome will prevail, for my highest good and the greater good of all

With this in mind I let go of what I cannot control and focus on what I can - my thoughts and my actions

I choose to be grateful, compassionate towards myself and others, and courageous



SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES SCORPIO FULL MOON


Aries/Aries rising: Transformation comes from merging

Full Moon in Scorpio May 2019: Mind over matter

Ambi Sitham

Full Moon Scorpio.png

Hello lovely ones and happy nearly Full Moon in Scorpio!

The Full Moon takes place this Saturday May 18 at 2.11 pm PT (adjust as always for your timezone) and falls at 27 degrees of Scorpio.

As always, you can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to check where Scorpio rules in your unique natal chart but if you are more familiar with your chart then please see where you have any planets or points (so house cusps which if you use the Placidus house system to cast your chart, have a degree for each house cusp) at between 24-29 degrees of Scorpio as the Full Moon will be activating these planets or house cusps.

As you are all probably aware by now, Scorpio is an intense watery sign. The eighth sign, ruled by powerful and intense Pluto and in the natural zodiac governing some of the most intense life issues - sex, joint finances and death.

Full Moons are intense times and Full Moons in certain signs can be more intense than usual.

In watery, emotional Scorpio, la luna can illuminate some of our most deepest darkest fears, emotions, habits, behaviors and secrets.

Thanks to powerful Pluto who rules the subconscious mind, what we keep hidden (or perhaps don’t even realize are issues as they are so submerged within our subconscious mind) can rise to the surface, almost quite violently.

Soulstrology tells us that the dark side of Pluto is controlling, manipulative, ruthless and destructive.

The light of Pluto is deep transformation which empowers us, helps us be soulfully powerful and paves the way for a powerful rebirth.

Yep, triple power vibes is the light of Pluto!

Full Moons as you know by now are the highest point of the lunar cycle.

The Moon is at her biggest and brightest and literally illuminates the skies.

At a Full Moon we can experience big highs, whether emotionally/internally or physically/externally.

They can absolutely be celebratory times where matters come to fruition and completion.

We can feel energized, excited and celebratory.

Conversely they can be times when things are brought up to the surface and the lunar spotlight. Emotions we have kept hidden, issues which have been buried.

As we approach the Full Moon these matters can come up internally/emotionally and/or on the physical plane.

Something can happen. Someone can happen. Sh*t can happen.

Either way we all probably know all too well what the Full Moon feels are like.

Whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we can feel the energy building as we approach the Full Moon.

This is exacerbated depending on the exact aspects of the Full Moon itself and other celestial happenings at the specific time.

With Scorpio ruling some of the most intense aspects of life, such as sex, money, death, power and transformation, Scorpio Full Moons tend to be more intense than normal Full Moons but this doesn’t mean that they are ‘bad’, they can be extremely powerful celebratory times.

As always how it plays out for each of us depends upon how the Full Moon impacts our unique charts and what is happening in each of our different lives at this moment in time.

Nonetheless we should all be taking into account the different celestial aspects at play at this Full Moon and how we can work with those energies.

Both cosmic heavyweights Saturn and Pluto continue to sit side by side in Capricorn with Saturn sitting right by the South Node and opposing the North node.

This is playing out on a macro scale in some of the political and social issues being thrust into the limelight in this country and around the world.

Think the patriarchy, authorities - the powers that be (Saturn) and the past, tradition, what we are used to (the South node) and the future, what we are supposed to step into (the North node).

This theme has been playing out for the last month or so and will continue to do so for sometime.

In our lives the same themes apply but are directed towards the Capricorn/Cancer ruled parts of our charts/lives.

Venus now in Taurus, and Uranus, also in Taurus, sit side by side each other at this Full Moon meaning their energies combine in a powerful way.

Uranus rules sudden change and liberation. His energies bring those light bulb moments where we get sudden insights and inspirations which may birth new invention/creations.

He is also a disruptor, so can sometimes shake up our world in a seemingly less than pleasant way, but ultimately for our progression.

Venus rules love, creativity, abundance, beauty, peace and socializing.

Uranus and Venus side by side can bring unexpected shifts with matters of the heart, finances, creative projects, and our social lives.

Whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’ all depends on what is happening in our lives and the filter through which we choose to view anything this aspect may bring and how we choose to respond.

Turning now to the main celestial aspect of this Scorpio Full Moon which relates to the Sun and Moon who are the key players at any New or Full Moon.

Mercury sits a few degrees away from the Sun in Taurus in an opposition aspect to the Full Moon.

Oppositions are tense aspects. The polarity of opposing zodiac signs/themes/energies can create tension that creates conflict.

Here the tension and conflict can come between our minds (Mercury) and our emotions (Scorpio Full Moon).

We must take care around communication (Mercury) and our emotions (Scorpio Full Moon).

There is the potential for tense, emotional communications.

The lunar spotlight illuminates what we need to deal with and while we must not suppress our emotions or bite our tongues fully, we must also be mindful that conversations do not get out of hand.

Thankfully there is great potential for communications to be constructive, productive and ultimately transformative for our lives thanks to Mercury (the mind/communication) making a sextile aspect to powerful Pluto who is the ruler of this Full Moon as he governs Scorpio.

We have the opportunity to harness the energy of Pluto to dive beneath the surface, to understand ourselves and our lives better and whether just in communication with ourselves through our thoughts, or in conversation with others, we have the opportunity to transform how we think about certain situations, which in turn will impact how we behave, which in turn will impact the outcome in our lives.

Which leads me nicely to the Soulstrology theme of this Full Moon - Mind over matter.

This is about harnessing the power of our minds to create certain realities, or to overcome certain challenges or obstacles.

This is about the power (Scorpio) each of us has to transform (Pluto) our realities from the inside - our minds.

If you know a Scorpio/Scorpio rising you will know how determined they can be. And sometimes that determination can be a bit much and can play out as the shadow of Scorpio.

But for the purposes of this Full Moon we want to focus on the light of this trait.

The ability to harness our minds in such a powerful way that we can change our realities, transform karma, shift our fates and step into our destinies.

We have assistance from the cosmos through the intensity of the emotional feels (and potentially communications) from the Mercury/Full Moon opposition.

These ‘Full Moon feels’ may be about a matter pertaining to a real life situation, a reality that causes us anxiety or distress.

But we can harness Mercury in grounded Taurus to soothe ourselves. To not get too overly emotional and to instead, as per the Soulstrology theme for May 2019, be grounded but flowing.

We can harness the power of Mercury and Pluto’s connection to dive deep into our subconscious minds to transform our psyche, our thoughts and beliefs around a certain situation so that we can truly have mind over matter and change our realities!

There are powerful energies at play which each of us can tap into and use to our advantage.

There are aspects which may bring unexpected (and welcome) changes thanks to Venus and Uranus.

And there is a distinctly transformative and karmic feel to events at this time thanks to the continued Saturn/Pluto conjunction and Saturn/north node opposition.

In order to live the future we desire, we must transform our psyche in the present, so we can step away from our pasts and into our destinies.

We must engage mind over matter…

More to come on your Soulstrology Scopes, but for now, allow the growing fullness of la luna to illuminate what you need to deal with and engage mind over matter about….think about those natural zodiac areas of life which Scorpio rules and the themes mentioned in this post, as well as of course the areas of life Scorpio rules in your specific chart.

More soon…

Venus in Taurus.png

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!

I hope you are enjoying the last week of Taurus season and are tapping into the powerful energies of the upcoming Scorpio Full Moon (more on this to come).

It’s a busy few days in the cosmos with cosmic lovers Venus and Mars both moving into different zodiac signs with Venus moving into Taurus tomorrow and Mars moving into Cancer the next day.

We have the wonderful Lexie Rollet of Alexandria Astrology contributing her insights on these transits starting with a post on Venus in Taurus.

Side note from me: I LOVE Venus in Taurus transits as Venus is exalted (at home, in her best position) in Taurus plus I know she is transiting my natal moon and Jupiter so they get a boost of Venusian energies.

When reading the below post, you will read for both your Sun and Rising signs but don’t forget to also look at your charts and any planets you may have in Taurus. They will get a much needed boost from Venus and heads up, if you are a Taurus Sun or Rising, you get the Venus filter for the next few weeks - a great time for a makeover, to impress people, to put your best foot forward, to be seen as your best external self!

Enjoy the post from the lovely Lexie and don’t forget to check her out on Instagram where she posts lots of useful astro snippets almost daily.

VENUS IN TAURUS

A breath of relief. Venus is at home.

Taurus is one of the signs where Venus is “at home” in the natural zodiac. (The other sign being Libra.) Let’s just melt in this transit because it’s an oh.so.delicious one.

Venus in Aries was largely about self-love and being assertive and well, self-love isn’t really going away for this transit either. In fact, it’s even more important now. Taurus needs a bit of self-assurance and a bit of pampering. And this transit (from May 16th to June 8th) will be a great time to give that to yourself.

Here’s a little personal story that perfectly encapsulates this transit. While reading it, think of your own life and see if you can draw any parallels from it.

During Christmas last year, I received a gift card for a local massage chain in my area. The card itself has imagery and wording on it about getting a facial. I’ve had physical therapy massages but never in my life have I ever gone to a massage establishment to receive a massage, just ‘cuz. And I sure as hell have never had a facial apart from the charcoal ones I give myself when I really really feel like I’ve been an extra good adult.

The card is still taking up space in my wallet and everytime I see it, I think, “You really need to use this….Yeah, but, you don’t deserve it right now….What have you done to deserve getting a facial?....I kind of want a massage. Do I have to get a facial just because the card says so? I don’t know!....How much is even on the card? Do you even know what to ask for when you go to use this card?....You can use the gift card after you’ve done something to earn it.”

For one thing, I’m way over-analyzing HOW to use this gift card. Taurus can very easily get to that place because Taurus wants all the T’s crossed and the I’s dotted before starting on anything. But, HELLO!!! That’s one of the biggest things getting in the way of doing what you want to do!!! Second, the only time I’ve gotten any “pampering” like this is when it served a practical purpose. Taurus is very practical and there’s always a reason for doing something. But can’t that reason just be, because you want to? And third, I can’t seem to get over this idea that I need to “deserve” using this gift card. Taurus is a hard-worker and will very rarely sit back to acknowledge that it has in fact worked extremely hard. And the fact that this was a gift, means someone else has acknowledged my hard work long before I’ve acknowledged it for myself.

This is where the self-love comes in.

For this transit, I challenge you to answer the following the questions:

How hard am I working? What does “working hard” even mean to me? Have I been denying myself a simple pleasure in life because it’s not what I “deserve”? Specifically, what would make me feel like I would “deserve” that pleasure? Is it possible that I’ve already done the hard work to earn that pleasure? What are the fruits of my labor at this moment? Is that not enough to have earned pampering? Is my existence and continued effort not enough to deserve a little bit of pampering?

Here’s a few specifics for your Sun and/or Rising sign:

 

Aries - Venus is in your money house for this transit. This gives you great earning potential, along with spending potential. You’re pretty impulsive anyway, Aries, so maybe just take 5 deep breaths before you decide to drop some cash.

Taurus - Really focus on yourself for this transit. Venus is in your sign, giving you the ability to do a little bit of self-awareness work and bring light to your worth and your value. Having Venus in your sign also gives you a little more magnetism and a cheerful disposition.

Gemini - This is a time to connect with yourself on a deep level. Venus is in your house of spirituality and subconscious, giving you the ability to follow your deepest and most creative urges. This would also be a good time connect with your higher self.

Cancer - Connecting with friends would do you well during this transit. Get a little more involved in the groups you’re already in or explore a new one you’ve been eyeing. Use this time to get super dreamy about what you hope to accomplish.

Leo - Venus is in your career house, Leo, giving you even more charm and magnetism in this area of your life. It’s also giving you the power of justice and diplomacy. Venus is here to help you establish balance and order where necessary.

Virgo - Travel and/or other cultures might pique your interest. Or at the very least, understanding people with a different perspective than you may come into play. Make a genuine effort to understand them and find the harmony between your beliefs and theirs.

Libra - There is a possibility of gaining through others during this time. Venus sits in your house of joint ventures and intimacy. While yes, your sex life will most likely be lit, be on the lookout for ways you can create abundance with other people.

Scorpio - Your relationships are the focus for Venus this time around. Use Venus to help you establish a balance within your one-to-one relationships. Also, this really may be a time to get a little steamy with your partner.

Sagittarius - Harmony and balance in the workplace may be a theme for you. Venus is here to give you that ability to establish a level playing field. However, on the health front, just be mindful. Venus could inspire you to get overindulgent, perhaps for good reason?

Capricorn - Venus is in your house of romance and creativity. You may feel a little extra seen during this time as people might be more drawn to you. If you have had your eye on a creative endeavor but haven’t started, this would be an excellent time to follow it.

Aquarius - Beauty in the home is the theme for you during this transit. Venus sits in your 4th house of home inspiring you to get creative there, maybe even host a party and entertain your favorite people.

Pisces - Sharing your message may prove beneficial for you during this transit. Venus will be sitting in your house of communication and mental activity and it will give you a beautiful ability to infuse your message and self-expression with charm, harmony, and elegance.



New Moon Taurus Soulstrology Scopes

SS New Moon in Taurus (1).png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Taurus New Moon!

Hopefully you will have read the Soulstrology Taurus New Moon blog and listened to the accompanying Soulstrology Soundbath, allowing the sounds and vibrations of change agent Uranus and grounded Earth to help you tune into what this New Moon means for you.

This should help put you in a great space to answer your Soulstrology cosmic coaching questions below and make your New Moon manifesting list to make the most out of this New Moon and the next lunar cycle.

  1. Reviewing the Taurus ruled parts of each of your charts, look back to the last May and note if Uranus has sown the seeds of any change in these areas of life in the last year. Make a note of any significant shifts that have taken place in these life areas.

  2. Continuing your review of the Taurus ruled parts of each of your charts, check in as to whether you are in your comfort zone, or even in a rut with regards to these areas of life, or where you feel stuck or hesitant (even scared) to change.

  3. Taking this review one step further, now journal as to what shifts you would like to see in these areas of life. Shifts that would reflect your true values, which would offer you freedom to experience these areas of life in a different way, shifts which serve the future you perhaps envision but are not sure is realistic.

  4. Now turn your attention to your personal finances and income. Ask yourself if you are truly happy with your financial status (remembering that yes we should have gratitude for what we have, but there is also always room for us to expand and receive more!) and also, importantly, on what it is that you do (for work) in order to receive that money. Check in as to whether you feel that the way in which you make your income truly reflects, and is aligned, with your values. Also check in as to how much your self-esteem, and how much you value yourself, is reflected in your finances.

  5. Take a few minutes to close your eyes (listen perhaps to a Soundbath if you would prefer) and notice how your body feels when you think about these Taurus themes of money, finances, values and self-esteem and notice what comes up in your body. Do you feel tightness/tension? Are certain areas of your physical body more activated than others? And if so do they feel ‘good’ or ‘bad’? Do the same thinking about the life areas Taurus rules in your unique chart, again, noticing how your body feels and perhaps making a mental note. Remember there is no right or wrong here, but our bodies often know what our minds can’t quite conceive, so it’s important to listen to our bodies!

  6. Draw up a New Moon manifesting list. Put at least ten items on this list and divide these roughly into the unique life areas ruled by Taurus in your chart (so based on your Sun and Rising sign) as well as the natural zodiac life areas ruled by Taurus (in question 4 above). Make your wish list, focusing more on the seeds of change you are planting, than necessarily listing a big sweeping change or manifestation that is to occur in the next lunar cycle. Remember each of our lists will be completely different and again there is no right or wrong, but do focus your list thinking about those themes of change, freedom and the future you desire.

  7. Once you’ve made your list, get yourself outside and engage in a walking meditation. All this means for the purposes of this ritual is walking and thinking about what the manifestation of those items on your wish list would feel like in your body. Again, no right or wrong, but really tune in and listen to your body. Sometimes if we don’t really believe we can manifest something, it may feel off in our body, but that’s ok as sometimes it can take us time to really believe that we can have, what we want! You can also read the Soulstrology Taurus New Moon mantras as you walk and really feel the truth of those mantras in your body as you engage in your walking meditation, or do the same with the Soulstrology Scopes for your sign.

  8. The next step of the ritual is to listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath. I like the grounding Earth Soulstrology Soundbath which I recorded ages ago for a Libra New Moon and have inserted below for your ease. I like this Soulstrology Soundbath for the end of this ritual as it feels very grounding and we want to ground the energy of the work we have done into our mind, body and soul.

  9. Complete your ritual with a water ceremony. This can be as simple as drinking a glass of water and visualizing that as you are drinking it you are consuming all the energies you wish to create over the next lunar cycle (you can use your Soulstrology Scopes channeled words/messages for this visualization!) Or, it can be showering or bathing, and again, visualizing that the water is filling you full of all the energies you wish to manifest over the next lunar cycle.

    Celebrate! You’ve just completed a powerful Soulstrology ritual to work with this Taurus New Moon!

SOULSTROLOGY TAURUS NEW MOON MANTRAS

I trust that it is possible to live certain areas of life in a completely different manner than I am accustomed to, a way that is known, that I cannot yet conceive of, but in a way that is not only liberating, but also really serves and nourishes me

I am open to the possibility that even if certain areas of my life are content and I am comfortable with how they are, that there is always room for growth and improvement and that it serves me to be open to the concept of expansion as well as being open to the unknown

I choose to believe that abundance is my birthright and that my job is to tap into the infinite well of abundance that exists by believing that I and all others deserve abundance

I trust that by living in alignment with my values, being true to myself, honoring and valuing myself, I will align more effortlessly with the energy of abundance and my life will be showered with abundance in all forms

New Moon In Taurus.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon in Taurus!

This powerful Taurus New Moon falls at 14 degrees of Taurus this Saturday May 4 at 3.45pm PT (adjust, as always for your timezone).

Use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to check where Taurus rules in your unique chart and if you are more comfortable with reading your chart, then check where you have between 12 and 16 degrees of Taurus in your chart, including any planets you may have at that point, as they will be triggered by the New Moon.

As you no doubt know by now, at each New Moon the Sun and Moon join together in a zodiac sign, focusing their energies in a specific part of our charts and by doing so giving us a gentle nudge and the opportunity to manifest in those life areas.

At last year’s Taurus New Moon, cosmic change agent Uranus was just moving into Taurus and beginning to plant the seeds of the changes in his seven year plus transit of the Taurus ruled parts of each of our charts.

He then turned retrograde, went back into Aries and only recently re-entered Taurus but now he is here to stay and we can expect that over the next seven years the life areas ruled by Taurus in each of our unique charts will undergo a HUGE transformation and rebirth.

Expect the unexpected!

This weekend’s Taurus New Moon gives us a great opportunity to start to sow the seeds of change in specific areas of life and to harness some of the powerful celestial aspects at play to get intuitively guided about what we might like to create.

Remember, change happens in layers, so with the Uranus in Taurus transit happening over the next seven years, it is not like we will necessary experience sudden shifts right away, they will unfold in waves over time, and each year, with the Taurus New and Full Moons and other celestial aspects made to Uranus, we will have the opportunities to work with this long transit to make deep changes to take us toward that new chapter which awaits each of us.

A caveat to this is that if you have anything at zero - five degrees of Taurus - so any planets or points in your chart within those degrees - you are likely to be feeling those Uranus shifts right now as your chart will be triggered as Uranus is at around 3 degrees Taurus right now.

But turning now to this Saturday’s Taurus New Moon and the Soulstrology theme, to dream bigger and level up.

The New Moon makes a beautiful sextile aspect to dreamy Neptune in Pisces.

This helps us to harness the intuitive, creative, spiritual energy of Neptune (exalted in Pisces, his home sign) and combine it with the earthy, practical, grounded energy of Taurus.

It is as though the cosmos is asking us at this time to allow ourselves to dream big in the Taurus ruled parts of each of our charts/lives, in order to level up.

Given Taurus is a fixed sign, it is one that doesn’t really like change. This sign likes the security that comes with familiar territory so it is a sign that craves and thrives off stability.

That is why this Uranus in Taurus transit over the next seven years is going to be so interesting because there are such seemingly opposing energies at play - tradition/stability/familiarity/steadiness (Taurus) and zany, out there, unexpected, world turning upside down kind of change (Uranus).

Uranus and Taurus aren’t easy bedfellows and so this isn’t necessarily going to be the smoothest of transits for some, or for the world at large (more on this shortly).

Nonetheless the shifts that will come from this transit will be nothing short of life changing and liberating, for each of us and on a wider scale.

Remember that in the natural zodiac, which applies to each of us, Taurus governs the second house.

The second house rules our personal income, finances, possessions and our values and self-esteem.

There is such a powerful link between our values and self-esteem and our personal finances/what we own/possess.

Soulstrology tells us that over the next seven years we will see great shifts in value systems, both individually and collectively.

Our values will shift in a way which means we want to live our lives differently, want to work differently and even look at money and possessions through a different filter.

Everything is pointing towards this being a positive thing.

That we will connect more to Mother Earth, to the simpler things in life, to the value of family and community. We will value all of these more and as a result there will be re-balancing of the scales in how we live, work and operate.

Ultimately this will be both liberating and progressive for each of us and humanity as a whole.

But, it may not come smoothly, or without upsets.

Uranus is a rebellious disruptor. He comes and shakes things up and can create quite a stir. His energies and ideas can seem ‘out there’ and ‘crazy’ but in time and perhaps with that beneficial filter of hindsight are viewed as ‘genius’ (Uranus is associated with inventions and strokes of genius!)

Over the next seven years each of us will experience these energies in the natural zodiac Taurus themes/ parts of lives as well as the Taurus ruled parts of our unique charts/ lives.

It may cause some mayhem during the process, particularly because the Taurus ruled parts of each of our lives are areas in which we may find ourselves adopting that fixed Taurus energies, but ultimately the results will be magical.

Right now, at this powerful New Moon, we have the opportunity to harness the energy of Neptune to get spiritual and creative about these Taurus life areas, to receive intuitive downloads and most of all to allow ourselves to dream bigger so we can level up.

There is always room for growth, always a next level, always more miracles. We just need to be open to them!

However there are other tenser aspects at play at this New Moon which could have us feeling those dark Moon feels….which I think as you guys know by now can be as intense as the Full Moon feels!

Jupiter in Sagittarius opposes Mars in Gemini at the time of the New Moon.

This could have us thinking large (Jupiter in Sagittarius) and then feeling the need to overthink, talk too much or overdo things (Mars in Gemini).

Remember that Taurus energy is to go slow and steady and to grow slow and steady, so keep that in mind if this Jupiter/Mars opposition starts to take hold of you!

Change happens in layers, not overnight, and as Taurus knows too well, slow and steady and grounded wins the race of life….

Another tense aspect at the New Moon is Pluto, Saturn and the South node, all sitting together in stern Capricorn, making a square to Venus in Aries.

As this is a Taurus New Moon, Venus is the ruler of this New Moon (as she rules Taurus as well as Libra) and this tense aspect between destructive but ultimately transformative Pluto, the lord of Karma Saturn and the South node (representing the past, our comfort zone and perhaps our rut in this lifetime) and the ruler of this New Moon adds to the energies of change that Uranus is ushering into the Taurus ruled parts of our charts/lives.

We may realize when journaling, doing our cosmic coaching homework, or connecting to the energies of this New Moon that in fact we have to face certain facts and realities (Saturn) and even destruction (Pluto) in order to move towards our destiny (just as the South Node squares Venus, so too does the opposing North node - aka our destiny - squares Venus).

The energy of these particular tense celestial aspects is that of transformation, building new structures for success, and moving away from what we know, our comfort zone, which may in fact be a rut and a place which may be comfortable to us, but doesn’t ultimately serve us, or allow us to progress and fulfill our destiny.

Some of these tenser aspects may certain be felt by us at the time of this New Moon, but remember that is a good thing.

Leveling up and expanding, is rarely without a process which involves some discomfort.

They are called growing pains for a reason, but such growing pains serve a greater purpose!

In summary, this is a very exciting New Moon and a powerful opportunity for us to dream a bigger dream and to begin the process of leveling up, slowly ushering in changes which are both liberating and allow us to truly progress on our path.

There is work to be done, in some cases discomfort to be felt and processed, but ultimately, it is all for our highest good and the fulfillment of our destinies.

More to come in your Soulstrology Scopes, including your cosmic coaching and mantras, but for now, please check out the Soulstrology zodiac guide to this Taurus New Moon (which you can also use to understand where the Uranus in Taurus transit is taking place in your chart) and perhaps listen to the Uranus and Earth Soulstrology Soundbath (link below for your ease) to help you to connect to the energies of this lunar event.

Love,

May cosmic update: Grounded, but flowing

Ambi Sitham

MAY COSMIC UPDATE.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost May!

Before I dive into May’s cosmic update I wanted to remind you that Saturn is stationing retrograde in Capricorn and your Soulstrology blog, zodiac guide, cosmic coaching and more, is up to help guide you to make the most, not only out of this retrograde but also out of the very powerful Saturn in Capricorn transit which goes through 2020.

Also, our last live Member call is also now up.

As I will be traveling to Europe towards the end of May and start of June, we will not have a call this month and our next call will be a very special one just after the Summer Solstice and pre-eclipse season on Sunday June 23 at 9am PT.

Remember, you don’t have to be on the live call to enjoy the benefits of the information shared as we will always publish the recording afterwards but if you want to chat/ask me questions in real time/in person as such then do try and join live as these monthly calls provide an opportunity to do so.

Onward to May 2019….

This month we have the Sun in Taurus for the first three weeks until May 21.

Taurus season brings with it a grounded, earthy energy which should be quite calming and balancing.

There are no big planetary retrogrades occurring this month although of course we are at the early stages of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto’s annual retrograde motions which require work to be done, but these do not shake things up that much during the month of May.

When you review May 2019’s cosmic diary have a closer look at the aspects Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn are making and take a note as those days may provide an opportunity for you to work with some of the themes of the respective retrogrades.

After the fiery energy of Aries season, the cosmos is asking each of us to root ourselves and to get grounded, but also to flow.

At first these two concepts can seem quite opposing by nature.

To be grounded can seem to be rooted, which can seem the opposite of flowing.

However, we must learn that in truth, this month and beyond, and our job is to be both grounded and flowing.

What this means is to be grounded within ourselves.

Within our values, our essence, deeply grounded in the core of who we are.

Grounded internally, meaning being emotionally grounded (emotional equilibrium as I like to call it, which you may hear me mention a few times on our call!) but also simultaneously flowing.

To be flowing means to be open to the cosmic currents and the different waves life brings our way.

To be flexible, adaptable and open.

By being grounded but also flowing means that we maintain a sense of self and our emotional center, and we aren’t overly swept up by the tides of life (be they seemingly ‘good’ or ‘bad’) and can flow with the currents of change, riding them to the best of our ability and harnessing their energy for our highest good.

As I mention on the call, given it is Taurus season and the element of earth is ruling the majority of this month, it is a very good idea to spend as much time outdoors, in nature, as possible.

You can also try earthing/grounding by going barefoot in nature.

Even if this means five minutes of walking barefoot in an urban park (think Richard Gere in Pretty Woman!) or a barefoot stroll on the beach, or just standing for a few moments in your front yard, or some green space, it just means any way in which you can connect to earth will help you to ‘earth’ and ‘ground’.

Confession, I am a tree hugger….yes, really, I randomly hug trees whilst out and about on my neighborhood stroll, it truly fills my Taurus moon with such deep joy and it grounds me!

Whatever works, works….

This month we must seek to find and maintain a grounded energy as it is from this place that we can best flow with life and make the most of any changes that come our way.

In the words of Virginia Woolf, “I am rooted but I flow”.

Mantra of the month

I embrace the opportunity to connect more deeply inwards and to create an inner equilibrium which helps me maintain an external equilibrium

With this in mind, I seek all and any opportunities to find inner peace, harmony and emotional balance and to honor what helps me to do so

I know that it is from this grounded place, with my feet firmly rooted, that I can best flow with any changes that may come my way over the next month

I trust that cultivating this ability to be both rooted and yet also flowing, will help me immeasurably both this month and beyond

Cosmic dates for your diary, including all the Soulstrology blogs (and a new Soulstrology Soundbath!) are set out below for your ease of reference.

May we each find what truly grounds us and helps us maintain an inner equilibrium regardless of external circumstances.

May we learn how to cultivate this daily, serving us this month and beyond to flow with both the ever changing cosmic currents and tides of life.

Love,

Ambi x

Saturn Retrograde: April 29 - September 18 2019

Ambi Sitham

Saturn Retrograde.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost ‘Saturn stations retrograde’!

Depending on where you live in the world, this Monday April 29 or Tuesday April 30, Saturn stations retrograde at 20 degrees Capricorn.

His retrograde will continue until September 18 when he stations direct at 13 degrees of Capricorn.

Therefore, as well as looking at the Soulstrology Saturn retrograde zodiac sign below (reading for your Sun and Rising sign) you also want to look at where exactly you have between 13 and 20 degrees of Capricorn in your unique chart.

See what planets or houses in your chart fall between these degrees as well as a couple of degrees either side, because anything at 11, 12 or 21, 22 degrees Capricorn will also be impacted by this retrograde.

I think you all know by now, but just as a reminder, Saturn has been in transit of Capricorn since the Winter Solstice 2017, poring his stern magnifying glass over the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our lives, identifying what is ‘wrong’ or ‘unstable’ or without a ‘firm foundation’ and letting us know in no uncertain terms that in order to achieve success in these areas of life, we will need to have a re-structuring in order to create the strong and stable foundations for lasting success.

During 2019’s retrograde we have the opportunity to re-examine the areas of life ruled by Capricorn in our unique charts and specifically those which fall between the 13-20 degrees of Saturn’s retrograde motion.

It is important on this occasion for us to identify these specific degrees in our charts because what we will find is that these life areas/the themes of any planets impacted are going to experience some karmic energies over the next six months.

Saturn as you all probably know by now, is the cosmic life coach, stern zodiac headmaster, who can give us a tough time, but ultimately rewards us for our work and ‘good behavior’.

The fact that he is raking over between 13 and 20 degrees of Capricorn in the zodiac (and therefore our charts) is very significant as we have of course already experienced Saturn’s energies in these areas of our charts since mid January 2019 - so the last four months.

Now, we get another opportunity to ‘re-do’ these areas of life, and if we weren’t able to do so the first time perhaps we can now harness this retrograde to tap into what the karmic lessons are for us, learn them fully and integrate them into our lives, so that we can begin to reap those Saturn rewards.

This is a very powerful retrograde for so many reasons as you will see through the aspects Saturn makes to other planets almost as soon as his retrograde starts (see the May cosmic update and look out for the Saturn aspects in particular which are very powerful in this next month) as well as the aspects he makes over the next five or so months.

We find ourselves now halfway through Saturn’s transit of Capricorn.

In fact, Saturn leaves Capricorn next Spring at the Spring Equinox when he moves into Aquarius.

However, due to his annual retrograde motion, he will dive back into Capricorn for a few months, meaning he will formally finish up with the Capricorn ruled parts of our lives at the end of 2020.

Each of us are at different stages of our soul’s journeys and personal evolution.

Some of us may be in our Saturn returns (talk to me if you are as we have a separate sub group supporting each other through their Saturn returns!), some of us may be struggling with Saturn’s karmic lessons and feeling like we are being cosmically bitch slapped and sucker punched.

Others of us may be working with the energies and reaping the rewards.

There is no wrong or right. Just what IS for each of us.

Regardless, whatever IS for each of us, or wherever we are at, we can all work with the energies of Saturn’s retrograde to our advantage, to learn lessons, to integrate them into our lives, to create new, solid structures and to reap the sweet rewards of Saturn, which is lasting success!

For now, review the life areas impacted by Saturn in your unique natal chart, using the Soulstrology zodiac guide below, but also looking at the degrees of the 2019 Saturn retrograde (and checking planets/points on two degrees either side).

And ask yourself the following questions: -

  1. Where have I been tested in these areas? Where have I felt stuck or stifled, as though I cannot move forwards?

  2. Have I felt fear, or low vibrations, a sense of heaviness around these life areas?

  3. Have I felt as though I have been slogging away, aka working really hard, just to stay afloat in these life areas?

  4. What lessons have I learned? And have I truly integrated these lessons into my psyche and my life?

  5. What can I identify that I may need to change in relation to these areas of life?

  6. In what ways can I identify that I may need to change?

  7. What can I celebrate/what have I achieved in relation to these areas of life?

  8. What else would I like to be able to celebrate in relation to these areas of life?

Journal away, answering these questions as honestly as you can. If you don’t know the answers to some of the questions as yet, do not fear, we will work on these together over the coming months (particularly in July’s eclipse season!).

May we all do the work of Saturn so we can taste his sweet rewards!

Love,

Pluto Retrograde: April 24 - October 2 2019

Pluto Retrograde (1).png

Hello lovely ones, I hope this finds you well.

This week, on Wednesday April 24 Pluto stations retrograde at 23 degrees of Capricorn. He will remain in retrograde motion until October 2/3 (depending on where you are in the world) when he will station direct at 20 degrees of Capricorn.

Due to his annual retrograde motion, the emphasis of 2019’s Pluto energies are focused on between 20 and 23 degrees of Capricorn. It is worth checking where exactly this falls in your chart just to see if you have any planets/points which are around these degrees of Capricorn as they will be triggered by powerful Pluto this year.

Either way you can look at the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see where Capricorn rules in your unique chart and the general life areas which are up for review.

During last year’s Pluto retrograde we talked about the purpose of power and how power comes from within.

In 2019’s Pluto retrograde we are going to be continuing to work on this theme of power but also on harnessing that power to create luck and miracles in our lives, as well as others.

As you all know serious Saturn is in Capricorn too and he and Pluto will join up early next year in Capricorn making for a very powerful force to be reckoned with which has the potential to bring each of us deep transformation, success and power in the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our lives!

But we need to work with the energies of Pluto and Saturn and their retrogrades this year in order to capitalize on these cosmic opportunities and make the most of them.

I have recorded a very powerful Soulstrology Soundbath and am recording a guided ritual to go along with it which will help you to make the most of these powerful energies.

I will share this with you at a future cosmically aligned date, but in the meantime please take the time to review the Capricorn ruled parts of your lives and charts to see what transformation 2019 has brought you and to think about what further transformation you would like to create, as well as how much luck you are experiencing and how much you are owning your power.

Stick to these themes for the purposes of this current review of the Capricorn ruled parts of your charts/lives as next week when Saturn goes retrograde we will be reviewing other themes and working with those life areas through a different lens…

More to come soon. And I hope that some of you can join on this Sunday’s Member call as we will be diving a bit deeper in person (as such) and I will take your questions on these transits/retrogrades.

For now, check out the Soulstrology zodiac guide below and your chart for where 20-23 degrees Capricorn is placed and the life areas/planets and points which are being targeted by powerful Pluto.

I have also included the new 2019 Pluto and Mercury Soulstrology Soundbath below for your ease which you may want to listen to as you review the Capricorn parts of your chart to gain Plutonic insights!

Enjoy :)

Venus in Aries: April 21 - May 15 2019

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!

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

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
