Venus Retrograde Special ~ Weekly Healing Astrology Energies

Posted on September 14, 2018 at 2:20 PM

Feminine energies are being called to go within as Venus will station direct at 10 degrees Scorpio on October 5, and begin her retrograde journey to look at where she is withholding love to herself and others.


Venus rules receiving love, feeling worthy, relationships with women, financial arrangements, and how one honors their feminine expression. Venus is in her detriment in Scorpio (meaning, she's not very nice and not very comfortable), so there is shadow energy, shame and emotional traumas to heal and honor within each of us.


Venus in Scorpio RX themes mean we are ready to meet our inner saboteur, inner mean girl, inner place of powerlessness, (or any disguises she attempts to conceal) and eventually love this part of yourself back up to a place of unconditional love. But first, we enter the cave...


Venus stations direct on November 16 at 25 degrees Libra. She will clear her shadow on December 19, 2018 when she moves to 11 degrees Scorpio and then finally leave Scorpio on January 7, 2019, so her passage through the underworld will encompass nearly 4 months of emotional healing.


Listen here for more insights on these energies for the months ahead.

Weekly Intuitive Astrology And Energies

Posted on August 16, 2018 at 8:50 AM

This week's shows are exciting! In Monday’s healing show, I discuss the new energies that blasted through with the August 11 Solar Eclipse, and how we are integrating them within our auras, in powerful ways! Higher levels of spiritual maturity are here for you, to trust in a higher path, as you no longer connect with what you left behind. This is a cool new energy wrap that filters out what you no longer need going forward, which hopefully brings comfort to what you've left behind and/or outgrown this year.


I also discuss the 4 Stages of Spiritual Growth: Spiritual Infants, Spiritual Children, Spiritual Teenagers and Spiritual Adults.


In Wednesday’s show, I cover the tension we have been feeling between your masculine and feminine energies. This can be created by an interesting mix of energies in Leo (Sun, Mercury, North Node) and Capricorn (Mars, Saturn, Pluto), creating what is called a Quincunx, or Inconjunct, between the two astrological signs.


After the New Moon Solar Eclipse on August 11, there may be discomforts around what you are moving towards and how you are growing through this current cycle.


This is the time to think about what you want to do on your own terms vs. what you know you should do to make things happen. This energy can create a spiritual maturity through the Capricorn energies. The good news is the energy will start to relax by the end of August.


Until then, I'll share with you insights for moving through this active soul growth period, by honoring both Leo and Capricorn's needs. (Hint: Follow the feminine energies for true soul growth!)


If you are having a strong Chiron transit in Pisces or Aries you may be experiencing significant challenges and it's important to remember, you have to go through the pain in order to experience the healing. It will be worth it once you are on the other side.


Venus moving into Libra will help bring balance. This will also help us re-access relationships and get clarity on who and what is serving us. This is all apart of the big realignment that I discuss in detail.


The Monday show is here.

Weekly Intuitive Astrology And Energies

Posted on August 10, 2018 at 11:20 AM

Here we are with another week of big energies! In Monday’s healing show, I discuss new possibilities that will be coming in strong after the New Moon Solar Eclipse on Saturday. It’s important to remember that it is our responsibility to remove any lower energies centered in feeling powerless. We have experiences of powerlessness that temporarily take us away from our power so we can return to that pristine energy field with higher spiritual wisdom and knowledge.


I discuss how we are collectively using the energies of the 8/8 gateway to spin away lower ego energies (yours or any that are connected with you) and spiral our inner worlds UP to greater levels of forgiveness, compassion, and healing for everyone involved.


In the Wednesday astrology show, I discuss the approaching powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse at 18 degrees Leo on August 11th. This eclipse brings in new downloads of SOULAR energies for a fresh new cycle in your levels of confidence.


Just days after the 8/8 gateway, we are opening up to new potentials and possibilities that were not previously available. Are you feeling it this week?


Venus entered Libra on August 6 so we can feel ready to share and socialize a bit more. Uranus in Taurus stationed retrograde on August 7th which may have caused disruptions and tensions. Keep clearing out what you no longer want to hold in your energy field because a new cycle picks up speed as we move into next week.

Mondays Weekly Healing Astrology Podcast

Posted on July 31, 2018 at 10:50 AM

The Total Lunar Eclipse blasted away energies in our auras that are no longer needed - nor fit - the upcoming cycles and upgrades.


If you are feeling anger, grief, pain, loss, or anything around what has not transpired in your life (yet!), it is important to honor those emotions and to let go of what you were holding on to.


The Universe/Source/Spirit is infinite in how it creates, and we are preparing for new downloads to arrive in August.


May this show bring you greater understanding and peace within around anything that had to go because it completed it's purpose.

Energy Wins. Stay Open.

Posted on July 24, 2018 at 12:25 PM

One of the messages I share regularly - and proudly! - is that you shouldn't force yourself to "feel" a certain way under the guise of "being spiritual." The whole "love, light and bliss" thing is a facade that quickly fades because it dismisses the complexities that make up the spiritual journey.


We are riding waves of amazing evolution right now, and it gets bumpy. It can be challenging. You may go through rough patches on the journey of becoming more of YOURSELF. And you may have some uncomfortable stuff come up. GREAT. WONDERFUL. That means it is TIME for it to come up and out!


So be real. Be authentic. Declare your truth. Own your feelings. State them with honesty even if your Ego-Mind throws a hissy fit.


Please don't suppress ANY of that or keep it down because you're trying 'be spiritual.'  Why?


Because energy wins.


Meaning, energy is truth. Energy is real. Energy is clear and direct and obvious. It doesn't play games like the Ego-Mind or try to make up happy excuses or do anything to 'outsmart' you.


ENERGY WINS because it's the message you are meant to receive! So be open to it!


No matter what is in front of you at this time, open up to receiving it and owning it as a message you need to know right now.


THAT IS THE GIFT!


Molly

We are travelers on a cosmic journey; stardust swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity.

Life is eternal.

We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to Love, to share.

This is a precious moment.

It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

Mercury Retrograde in Leo

Posted on July 24, 2018 at 8:55 AM

A few times a year, we are gifted with periods of time to slow down, re-asses, gather ourselves together, and take stock of what the heck we are doing in our daily lives. And this period of time is called....Mercury Retrograde! 


Mercury Retrograde begins this Thursday, July 26 at 23 deg Leo and goes until August 18 at 11 deg Leo. Look for the house or any planets you have at these degrees of Leo for where you are going to be experiencing this energy of re-assessing, re-creating, re-considering, and re-prioritizing what calls to your heart right now.


Leo is a fixed sign that does not change its mind or needs easily. Leo energy has a strong will, determination to be seen, a desire to create, and is inspired by what is in the heart - where is there love, joy, and play to experience in life? Let's have some FUN and take a gamble - Vegas anyone? Leo is the archetypal sign of Las Vegas in many ways: gambling, sex, stage and theater, showgirls and dancers, plays, concerts, adult playland, desires of the heart, playing a persona, and standing out from the crowd. What is all for show just to get attention and be in the limelight, and what is truly an inspiration and expression of Self? There is a huge energetic difference in these areas of self-expression.


Mercury in Leo can be a show-off, but this retrograde is asking us to go within for what truly connects with a strong sense of Self - Who Am I Now? How am I developing more courage in myself and feeling stronger in what I want? Do I allow myself to be seen and recognized for who I truly am? Can I accept praise for my talents and abilities? Can I receive love from others in an authentic way?


It takes confidence to be the True You and put yourself out there in the world. We can mentally hold ourselves back or stay stuck in an Ego-Mind fear. Mercury in Leo retrograde is showing us where the False Ego's dialogue can be released and removed so a stronger heart-based energy is more present. More love, less False Ego. More true light, less bravado. Then you truly SHINE from a new sense of power. When Leo energy comes from that place, it is pure gold and fiery passion.


As you tap into the gifts of this Mercury in Leo retrograde, you may find more creative solutions and ways to express yourself that are authentic, courageous, and inspiring. Stay open to these aspects of yourself.

 

Our energy fields are expanding greatly, and sometimes it takes the mind more time to follow suit. This Mercury retrograde is providing an opportunity to be in higher alignment with your own energy field based on Love For Self. You may hold back love for yourself through unconscious thoughts, and now you will be gifted with ways to see those lower vibe messages you give to yourself. Is that really how you'd talk to someone you love deeply? Watch those messages and voices that dim down your light because the Leo energy will help you turn up the wattage to a new degree of self-love.


Every Mercury retrograde period is a beautiful opportunity to slow down and focus on a project that needs your attention. Re-work, re-consider, and re-create based on what resonates with a deeper truth of who you are - you will feel the courage rising to do so!


When the Sun and Mercury RX conjoin on August 9 at 16 deg Leo, there will be a surge of LIGHT shining on what you did not see before. August in general is a huge month of slowing down and allowing because a number of planets are in retrograde. More about Your Zen Summer in this special podcast here.


I love Mercury Retrograde. I am typically very productive and find what I previously missed. We can make the most of these periods by seeing them as a blessing - not a curse! - and slowing down to honor the cycle of things. Don't fight what needs to go, and don't hold on to what has expired. New downloads are coming into our hearts - and we can miss them if we don't slow down to allow an integration period. <3


I'll be sharing more about the current energies in this week's podcast, too.

Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse Energies

Posted on July 12, 2018 at 8:00 AM

The first eclipse of summer 2018 is here with a New Moon Solar Eclipse on July 12/13 at 20 degrees Cancer. We are being PUSHED to transform a part of our past, emotional world, unresolved pains, and buried resentments into a more useful and powerful experience as Pluto opposes the Sun and Moon.


It may feel like am emotional time, as power struggles trigger what needs to be healed. You may feel a deep push back to 'not go there' or to do what you can to feel safe. Yet the Universe is showing you that what you've been holding on to, locked away in a safe, protected space, can only take you so far until it needs to be honestly felt and released.


 

Every New Moon is both an ending point and a starting point, and we are being guided to connect with how we truly feel around heartbreak, loss, pain, resentment, and bitterness.


What areas of your emotional world can you feel more deeply by getting these stale emotions out of your energy field? As you do this inner work, you then feel wholer in your light and ready for a new beginning that is fresh, clear, and purer.


 

Cancer energy is learning how to TRUST the process even when you cannot see where the river flows.


 

So if you're feeling teary, emotional, or stuck in the past about something, this is the time to PURGE in whichever ways feel safe for you.


 

The same eclipse points typically happen every 18-19 years, and this one at 20 degrees Cancer is quite interesting. We will have another Lunar Eclipse at this same degree in January 2020. Here is a timeline of this eclipse energy.


You can look at the themes in your life during these periods to see what has shown up for you:


 

January 2001 - Lunar Eclipse

July 2010 - Solar Eclipse

July 2018 - Solar Eclipse

January 2020 - Lunar Eclipse


 

Wednesday's podcast is right here if you want to hear more about this week's energies.


 

Or catch it on YouTube here.


It has been a big week so far - have you been feeling it?


Let yourself flow, purge, and cleanse as needed, and trust that you've totally got this part of your journey covered.

Responsibility With Your Spiritual Gifts

Posted on June 18, 2018 at 12:55 PM

How much of your energy should you share with others, and how much should you keep for yourself?


What spiritual gifts should be private, and which ones should be public?


And how do you know the difference? 

 

There is not one simple answer, of course, but it is always very wise for your energy to make choices that honor what you need. 

 

In this show, we'll look at how to honor and respect yourself and your spiritual gifts, while sharing and supporting others in ways that feel best for you.


 

We'll also define what the heck spiritual gifts are, and talk about lesser-known ones because you do not need to be psychic or a channel to have them! Those are such a 1990's description. :)

The Astrology of Transformation and Letting Go

Posted on June 15, 2018 at 6:20 PM

Pluto and Neptune each bring us to a common energy experience of letting go, transformation, and releasing what our egos want to hold on to.


The human experience is temporary, so we look for certain ways to identify and know ourselves, but the soul's experience is eternal and does not need to maintain - or contain - any one thing.


It felt right to do a special show on these two planets to help with any deep transformation you may be experiencing, and to shed light on the higher perspective to consider.


May these insights be of benefit to you in some way!

New To Astrology?

Posted on May 19, 2018 at 1:05 PM

It's tricky to sum up the world of astrology because it's composed of centuries of knowledge and study, and has many divergent studies and philosophies within it, including Western astrology, vedic astrology, horary astrology, and more.


Essentially, astrology is the study of cycles of energies as represented by the planets and zodiac signs. It is a tool for understanding yourself better: your gifts, talents, lessons, challenges, and Self. Astrology reveals energy patterns and tendencies, while also honoring your free will and your ability to choose what you want to do.


In my years of practice and study, I've found this to be a big topic - do we have free will or are we fated for a particular outcome? I don't think that is something anyone else can answer but you. What do you believe for your life? What makes you feel powerful?


Ultimately, all tools have the potential to bring us to higher levels of personal power and self-knowledge. I believe that's why we seek them out in the first place.


Learn more about astrology and energies within you over on my new website, ConsciousIntuitiveAstrology.com. 


Hopefully you discover some new ways to know yourself better.
