Shifting Energies of 2016

Posted on August 15, 2016 at 7:45 PM

We've glided - or stumbled - into the second half of 2016, and we have a significant shift in energy as we move - or dance! - through the remaining months of the year.


If you've wondered if you've missed anything... or went on a divergent path... or had more "stop" than "go" in 2016... this show will bring your heart, head, and soul to rest with a reassuring message.


I'll be discussing the astrology energies that are different now, and how 2016 is a transition year for many of us.

September Energies and Eclipses

Posted on August 7, 2016 at 4:15 PM


The beginning of fall brings us eclipse season! Ready or not, powerful energies will be surging through in September to push us forward on our individual and collective paths.


Eclipses are intense connections between the Sun, Moon, and Lunar Nodes that occur only twice a year, so there is an added charge of potentials, change, breakthroughs, and developments in September.


Join me and fellow soul astrologer Dominique Jaramillo as we talk about the Solar Eclipse on September 1 at 9 deg Virgo, and the Lunar Eclipse on September 16 at 24 deg Pisces.


Grab your astrology chart to see where these are showing up for you!


Plus, we have Mercury retrograde in Virgo through most of September as back-to-school and sports activities get underway - keep those to-do lists and calendars in pencil!

Rare Astrological Energies Underway Now!

Posted on August 4, 2016 at 11:15 AM

As we begin August, all 6 of the outer-most planets are currently retrograde right now: Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the North Node. What does this mean?


 

 

Each of these planets relates to the energies of the collective and the major themes of our times.


When they are in retrograde, we are working with them more in the inner realms and within ourselves individually.


 

 

We'll discuss how each of these planets is a teacher that is currently showing us what we are choosing - consciously or unconsciously - and how it contributes to our co-creation of the world right now.

Servin' Up Spiritual Breakthroughs This Week

Posted on July 27, 2016 at 12:20 PM

One of the big energies we are building up to and feeling strongly this week is Uranus in Aries preparing to go retrograde on Friday. ‪The planet is currently slowing down (yellow light)... to stop at the red light and head in reverse until December. (He is at 24 degrees Aries and will venture back to 20 degrees Aries until December 29, revisiting his path since April 2016.)


 

Uranus is the planet of disruption, breakthroughs, breakdowns, chaos, lightening strikes, technology, the internet, groups, rebellions, and individuality. He shows us where we are not being ourselves, and where we need to follow the beat of our own drum. We do not want to be told what to do; instead, we want the freedom to follow our own vision and creations. And as we do that, then we connect with a soul tribe that meets us at that same energetic vibration and frequency.


 

Uranus is also the planet of spiritual awakenings and opening up to higher cosmic wisdom. It rules astrology, metaphysics, and anything that is 'out there' and ahead of mass consciousness. Visionary and cerebral, we are encouraged to think beyond borders and outside of the box - because is there really a box in the first place?


 

In Aries, Uranus shows up as an assertion of individual identity and honoring who you really are at a soul level. It's where you are crumbling because you can't be 'something else' to others; you can only be yourself and you won't pretend anymore!


In many ways, this planet is showing you a starting point for the next phase of your life because you are coming to understand more of yourself than ever before. Your I AM energy is being activated in a way that you can embrace, own, and integrate into your life.


 

From now until the end of the year, we'll be looking within for more answers and deeper understandings around our spiritual awakenings process. It is a wonderful time to explore metaphysics, astrology, universal energies, and anything that raises your curiosity because that is Uranus in Aries reminding you of your light and eternal connection to the cosmos.

Onwards we roll!

New! Astrology Energies of Summer 2016

Posted on June 21, 2016 at 10:35 AM

The astrological shifts, changes, and new opportunities will continue to roll through the summer - are you embracing what is showing up for you?


It may feel like a PUSH or a PULL, but know it is meant to guide you to a higher life vision and fresh dream.


In this NEW episode, we look at what the energies are teaching us right now, and how we can work with them with consciousness and joy.


Uranus in Aries is activating Eris in Aries, which is all about FEMININE ANGER - are you feelin' it on some level?


We'll talk about how this is showing up and how you can work with it powerfully. The worst thing we can do is deny or try to hide it.

Big Weekend Energies!

Posted on May 21, 2016 at 1:30 PM



We've got a big energy weekend ahead!


 

Mercury stations direct after a brutal retrograde; an intense Full Moon in Sagittarius is volatile and action-oriented as it opposes Mars and sets off triggers around what we want to fight for; and we may finally feel like ideas, projects, and choices are ready to go forward after a long period of indecision.


 

It could feel like a dam bursting, so be conscious of which side of the damn dam you are on. :)


 

Know that people will be bursting in various ways - including ourselves - and that is not necessary a bad thing at all, especially with the (perceived) delays of May. The Sun is now in May, so we are definitely ready to go-go-go since Mercury is now leading the parade. Mercury is still in Taurus, and will retrace what was covered from the middle of April.


 

We'll finally have steady footing and more decisive ways to proceed ahead. Time has been on your side, so let go of what you thought would line up and play out.


 

Mars in Sag conjunct the Moon and opposing the Sun in Gemini will put emotional energy into what we fight for, and this combo can be quite righteous and argumentative. It's also a mutable energy, so what is fought for today might change position tomorrow as more information comes forward.


 

Keep in mind....Can I let this go? Is this not worth the fight or energy? Do I want to exert my energy in this way, or just let it pass?


 

It's not the best weekend to provoke or start something, so don't put up your dukes if you really don't have to. A heads up that Saturday or Sunday may bring up some matters that are ready to be addressed, and anger is not a negative thing. It's just how you work with it that matters.


I post more energy updates on Facebook and in a private FB astrology group. Send me a message on my FB page if you'd like to join us!

Prince's Final Farewell, Full Moon Style

Posted on April 23, 2016 at 10:45 AM

Prince was here to leave a creative dent in the world with his Pluto at 29 Leo exactly conjunct his MC. ‬ The power to create, transform, and express to the masses was meant to rock the foundation of artistic expression. And with his Scorpio Ascendant, I highly doubt anyone could tell him what to do or how to do it. smile emoticon The magnetism, power, and passion of his Scorpio Asc meant it was definitely going to be his way, no compromising. He was a force and locked into his destiny as a spiritual purpose of personal power (Neptune conjunct North Node in Scorpio).


With his Sun in Gemini and Moon in Pisces, Prince loved being multiple things to multiple people, yet Venus in Taurus in the 6th was all about the music = working for the music and creation of beauty. Venus squaring Uranus in Leo in the 9th is the instability in relationships, probably based on different belief systems, as well as not feeling anyone could truly love him long-term.


His Moon in Pisces in the 4th house makes for a very private person - an introvert who needs to be in his own space daily. Sensitive, spiritual, insightful, intuitive. These gifts fueled his poetry and ability to create from 'other worlds'. His Mercury in Gemini gifted him with the spoken word talents of a songwriter, storyteller, active mind, probably a great joke teller, and overall genius with words.


It has yet to be officially confirmed if he was suffering from an auto immune disease that he acquired decades ago, but with Chiron and Saturn working with both his Sun in Gemini and natal Saturn, pressure was increasing. The physical healing hit a reality check that could not be avoided. 


His astrology chart is complicated and all over the place with multiple energies vying for expression. I hope he feels a sweet peace with his journey and all he created, shared, and offered us.


He said goodbye to us on a Full Moon in Scorpio conjunct his Neptune and North Node in the 12th house. A completion cycle. Secrets. Spiritual transition. A celebration for his mission and a recognition that he did it his way, all the way, for better or worse, and made sure to have some fun along the way.


This is what it sounds like when doves cry.

Personalizing Mercury Retrograde In Your Chart

Posted on January 21, 2016 at 8:10 PM

Every Mercury Retrograde cycle is composed of different energies, yet each Mercury Retrograde will always rule one - or more! - areas of your astrology chart.


When you know this part of your chart, you have a “heads up” about the areas of life that you should always re-vise, re-consider, and re-lax more with each Mercury Retrograde cycle.

 


In this show, we'll talk about how to find that part of your astrology chart and what it means for you personally when navigating life when Mercury is in retrograde.


 

 

Grab your free astrology chart at www.astro.com to follow along and find the area of your chart that is ruled by this energy.

Astrology and Energies of January 2016

Posted on January 1, 2016 at 1:25 PM

A big welcome to a new year of energies and potential!


January 2016 kicks off with one of our favorite things - Mercury retrograde! - and includes Jupiter going retrograde, too.


 

We'll talk about what the month has in store with Saturn in Sagittarius requiring you to believe in yourself more, Jupiter in Virgo making sure you are eating your veggies and focusing on the daily details, and Chiron and Neptune in Pisces encouraging us to constantly let things go and remember the spiritual aspects of our journey.


 

The New Moon in Capricorn on January 9 focuses on your next round of goals, and the Full Moon on January 23 is about opening up to bigger sources of freedom and support.


 

Plus, 2016 is a whole new ballgame of energies than the past 3 years have been. You may even feel an exhale of sorts - we'll discuss!

The Real Force Awakens

Posted on December 18, 2015 at 1:20 PM


The sun (sol) hits a stoppage point (stitium) - "solstice" - twice a year as it reaches the furthest points north or south of the equator. We know the bi-annual solstice days as the periods when seasons change and our days increase, or diminish, in light, depending on your hemisphere.


 

 

The winter solstice begins the change from dark back to light over the next 6 months. There is an invitation to integrate what you've learned since the summer solstice in June, and apply it to your next round of growth. The real force within you awakens at this time as you are wiser and stronger than before. The young Jedi is now an expert and a guide. The saga of soul growth continues on a new adventure with new peeps, new lessons, and crazy-wild terrain to explore. What was hidden within you now has the potential to be activated in the light. (Full disclaimer: Disney is not profiting off of this FB post in any way. :)


 

 

As the winter solstice approaches on Monday, Dec 21 (summer solstice in the southern hemi), we are urged to turn our attention away from the outer world of hustle and bustle, and remember that we need periods of rest and reflection, including Netflix-binging on the couch.


 

 

Time to put away the credit cards, set down the mobile devices, and remember that we are bigger than this moment of busy-ness.


 

 

(Exception: This advice does not apply to husbands, boyfriends, or partners who still need to get their Christmas shopping done. :) }


 

 

Astrologically, the Sun moves from extrovert, popular, entertaining Sagittarius to pensive, serious, committed Capricorn on the solstice. We shift from the FUN to the MEANING of this time of year. Notice how the energy changes from feeling OMG-crazy to let's-get-serious about what matters and how much we need to spend? That's a gift of the solstice.


 

 

We also turn our attention to how far we have come in only 12 months and reflect back on what we've experienced and achieved.


 

 

How would you sum up 2015 for yourself?


 

 

The solstice invites contemplation and peace. You've done enough. You've done your best. You did all you could. You were perfect and wonderful and lovely, even when it was messy and scary and hard. You only have control over so much, so let yourself off the hook for the rest. Give yourself peace in the stillness. Find the lesson, the growth, the bigger picture - and breathe.


 

 

Recommendation: Peace is best served with chocolate and red wine.


 

 

Thankfully, that darn rascal Saturn is now in Sagittarius and no longer in Scorpio, so we really, truly have support to build a foundation for our next vision. What do you want to create in 2016 that supports your belief in yourself and your next round of dreams? That's a big question, and it will take work, but continue to believe in yourself. Be ready to get to work and follow your inspirations for the next call of your soul - the cosmos says it's time!


 

 

Other things to consider:


~ Stay flexible. More than ever, we have to be able to go with the flow and allow change to occur that is ultimately in the best interest for All. It will continue to look different, so don't get locked in to one expectation or a particular outcome.


 

 

~ Do it your way. Not what other people expect, or based on any limitations you've put on yourself previously, or what others are doing.


 

 

~ Be willing to be a NEW version of yourself. No need to hold on to what has expired or what no longer represents who you are because that may be just a bit too small now. Honor your own growth and changes - all of it.


 

 

~ The past 3 years have been tough on many levels. Now that time is over and it's time to move forward. Don't replay or rehash what's done and complete, silly!


 

 

~ Apply what you've learned. We were meant to be pushed and challenged over the past 3 years in order to now apply our knowledge and use it. You'll want to make new choices - so allow yourself to do that.


 

 

~ Wear your Star Wars costume all year long. (I just get a kick out of adults who dress up to go to the movies. How can you see through that mask?!)


 

 

Related to these energies, I'll be talking about how 2016 begins with the Astrology and Energies of January 2016 this weekend. Yes, the radio show is back after my maternity leave, and we'll be diving into what the New Year brings as it kicks off with Mercury retrograde, Jupiter retrograde, and a New Moon in Cappy.


 

 

*The energy of 2016 is very different than the past 3 years have been! You'll feel it, too.*


 

 

Join me here on Sunday!


 

 

This weekend will feel busy-busy with parties and shopping and lots of last-minute errands, but it will feel more grounded starting on Monday as the Sun enters Capricorn and the Moon is in Taurus. The Full Moon on Christmas day highlights family dynamics and where you feel safe in the world. May Santa grant your every wish this year - we all deserve it!


 

 

Cheers and holiday spirits to you!

Molly
