Full Moon of Truth – A Look at the Week Ahead

full moon


“Our genius comes alive when we are willing to confront our shadows.”

Gene Keys, Richard Rudd; “Dare to be Divine”

The week ahead contains the end of a holiday weekend, the Full Moon, a Grand Water Trine, a Mystic Rectangle and Mercury’s move into Gemini.  Not a bad week ahead! There are some really beautiful energies and maybe a couple that are a little more challenging!  Let’s take a look …

We start the week with the Moon opposing Mercury, and a Void of Course Moon.  The Moon is VOC from 10:25 am PDT to 3:29 pm PDT today (May 28,2018).  By that time, the Moon has left Scorpio for Sagittarius and we are preparing for the Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th.  The Moon opposing Mercury may make for either deep discussions, from the heart & soul today, or difficulty in expressing the true meaning of your message.  I’m feeling that as I’m writing this morning because I have so much I want to say, but words defy me a bit 🙂  Just make sure that your words today are not filled with spite and anger or that Scorpion “sting” – wouldn’t want to end a delightful holiday weekend with unnecessary conflict or confrontation!

Tomorrow we enter the Full Moon window as the Moon & Sun do their monthly dance of opposition.  The Moon in Sagittarius pushing us to look deeper, to see the TRUTH, and the Sun in Gemini making it easy to do.  We will talk more about the Full Moon during tomorrow morning’s broadcast in the MetaCafe .

I shared the quote above from Gene Keys’ Richard Rudd in a video introduction of his “Dare to be Divine” series.  It is profoundly telling a TRUTH … that only by embracing and owning the shadow can we find the Truth of who we are.  But deeper than that, I see the Gene Keys with their arrangement of Shadow, Gift and Siddhi as DNA nesting dolls.  That is, encompassed in the shadow is the gift and the siddhi.  Richard basically says the same thing in this video:  Dare to be Divine

This is a nearly 40 min video, but is so worth the listen!  And, hey, the Moon is still in Scorpio at the time of this writing, so why not go deep into something?  🙂

The Full Moon brings illumination, revelation and aha’s or can bring us completion and a doorway to moving forward.  Perfect for our evolution right now!

One of the most striking features of this Full Moon is the Mystic Rectangle that it forms with the Sun, North Node and the South Node/Mars conjunction.  This is a highly spiritual formation and one that we want to be able to utilize as we forge our pathway forward toward living our destiny…remember last week?  We talked about this and how we get stuck in the “dream” and fail to move into manifesting our dreams?  What would you need to release in order to go from Fantasy state to a Manifesting state? Something good to consider for this Full Moon.

Later in the week we are supported by a Grand Water Trine.  The Planets Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio and Venus in Cancer, form a harmonious angle to one another allowing us a deeper experience of Love, Forgiveness, Nurturing & Emotional Connection.  This is very supportive energy that is in the background from May 28-June 5!  Enjoy 🙂  If you’re feeling sensitive, emotional, meditative – this forming Grand Water Trine might be the reason.  It favors spiritual musing, along with inner work.

Mercury, our favorite little messenger planet, moves into Gemini tomorrow, the sign it rules!  Be prepared for conversation, information, and motion!  We’ll now have both the Sun and Mercury in the sign of the Mind and that means curiosity, questions, and the hunt for answers, as well as social activity!  This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year – When both the Sun & Mercury are light, airy and out for some fun!  🙂

Alrighty  – thank you all for allowing me the day to write instead of talk, and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning, 8:00 am PDT/11:00 am EDT at the MetaCafe for your Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle energy report!

Love & Blessings,

Astrology & Human Design for the Week Ahead

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I know I did – and I got a lot accomplished!

This is week two of the quieter energies for the month of May – the calm before the storm, if you will.  But, this week does have some challenges ahead, as well as some wonderful opportunities!  Yes!

We start the week with the Moon in Aquarius giving most of us a unique and off-key viewpoint.  I thought it was funny this morning when some FB posts that I was seeing were all about turning things upside down to get a different perspective – that is so Moon in Aquarius 🙂  The rest of the week, Luna travels through Pisces and then into Aries, which we’ll talk about more as the week moves on.

Watch your words today and for the next couple of days as Mercury has come to an exact square (90 degree, challenging aspect) with Pluto.  Words can empower or slice and dice, and they may be misinterpreted – especially on social media where it is difficult to gauge the tone and emotion behind the words.  Be wise then about what you say, when you say it, and maybe realize that you can be misunderstood.  Have compassion for your fellow humans as well, they may not tune in to astrological wisdom and have no clue about what is happening 🙂

I’ll let you enjoy the rest of the week’s information in the video!





Surprises or Upsets Today?

Today the Moon and Uranus come together to create either surprises or upsets, depending upon your viewpoint.  The Moon in late degrees of Sagittarius is completing her travels and preparing to move into Capricorn later this evening.  Tomorrow will be a much different day, so enjoy the more sociable energies today! 

Hello everyone,

Today the Moon and Uranus come together to create either surprises or upsets, depending upon your viewpoint.  The Moon in late degrees of Sagittarius is completing her travels and preparing to move into Capricorn later this evening.  Tomorrow will be a much different day, so enjoy the more sociable energies today!

In today’s Morning MetaCafe, we also explore the upcoming Mars retrograde through chart readings.  Wow – I gained so much from working through these charts!  That’s something I want everyone to understand.  Hearing what is happening in someone else’s chart can be very eye-opening for yourself, as you may recognize something that is going on in your life and find new meaning in your experience!

Here is today’s video:

Today’s Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report

Today’s energy is still much less intense than last week’s!  The Moon is in Sagittarius for the entire day, leading us to desire the experience of more Freedom, Adventure and Social connection.  We may even feel like exploring new ideas and topics today.  After yesterday’s video on Starseeds, I was definitely out there looking for more information and knowledge!

The Moon is also in an opposition to Venus this morning, bringing us to the core of our values … to our soul’s yearnings and desires.  Mercury, messenger planet, is in a favorable aspect to Luna today as well.  As Mercury rules communication and the Moon rules our emotion, conversations may be more emotionally tinged today.  Just be sure to not let the emotion of the moment come out in your words in hurtful ways!  Neptune is squaring (challenging) the Moon today to rise up to the highest mind, to the divinity within when dealing with the world today.  See things from unconditional LOVE rather than the more narrow, human mind.

In the video this morning, (see above) I talk a lot about sunspot activity and its relationship to cooler weather on Earth.  Is this possibly a feedback loop of sorts that allows a balance on Earth?  I suggest that that is exactly what happens with rhythmic frequency.  Is it also possible that low sunspot activity allows more of the cosmic rays that produce evolution on our planet to break through?  Evidence suggests this is true, and with a huge energetic shift coming this month when Uranus breaks out of Aries and moves into Taurus, we may just see some movement on our evolution – especially monetary & values.

The North Node and Ceres are conjunct today as well.  SWEET!  I love this as Ceres represents Mother Earth in her Abundance!  The North Node represents Destiny and is moving us forward along our life path trajectories – as individuals and as a collective – could it be that we will be ready in the very near future to change our values around the environment and how we take care of our beautiful, blue planet?  It certainly is possible!

The aspects that are being made by the North Node and Ceres right now suggests we must first begin within ourselves … it is the personal planets (inner planets) – the Moon, Mercury, Venus and the Sun – that are affected and that always brings the responsibility for change to us as individuals!  We may not be able to make corporations, Congress or our President understand the dynamics of preserving, purifying and beautifying our world, but we can use our resources to demonstrate our value in taking care of the Earth.  Use your dollars to buy products that are environmentally friendly, use your time to educate your family-friends-community on how to recycle, or in other ways to support a healthy environment.  Get involved on a level that is individual … the larger world changes take place as a reflection of what we ourselves change within.

I hope you enjoy the video and have a wonderful day!
