Astrology Article: A Positive Outcome and Bright Future

This New Moon is the perfect time to pull up a chair and to sit down with the intent to recount all the good that’s taking place in your life. You’ll feel a natural urge to recognize the harmony surrounding your circumstances. With the right focus, you will be able to see how your past activities and decisions have shaped your current situation toward a positive outcome.

This isn’t the appropriate time to look for mistakes or to embrace any regrets or negative ideas about karma. Instead, feel and appreciate the positive indicators of your progress. These may be hiding, even in plain view, so look beyond the obvious. The New Moon is bringing this positive type of awareness to your consciousness for the purpose of expanding your sense of plenitude and abundance. What’s actually expanding within this awareness is your own creativity, as it begins functioning in harmonious ways.

Focus your attention on any experiences of fulfillment as well as any new developments that may be occurring around you. As we enter the new year there is a definite buzz, or feeling, that there is a positive shift taking place in the world. Not all of us will experience the shift in a positive way, but with a little bit of “occult” knowledge, and the innocent expression of love and joy, you can begin to shift things in a more positive frame of reference.

“Occult” knowledge in this case is nothing more than a recognition of spiritual forces working behind the scenes for the betterment of humanity. It’s also a measure of the practical development of your own higher sensitivities, resulting from regular practices of seeking higher consciousness.

As you move deep into this Lunar month and closer to the Full Moon, spend some time reflecting on your positive achievements and your goals for the year ahead. The world is plentiful, full of harmony and love. Use your occult knowledge of the spiritual force of good to embrace your hidden source of plenitude and inner wealth.

Astrology Pattern

New Moon Astrology Chart for January 2016Whenever four or more planets are tightly packed together astrologers refer to the formation as a stellium. This New Moon has the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Pluto all working together for a very positive outcome. (The Sun and Moon are technically not planets, but in this case the term “planets” refers to all celestial bodies.)

The New Moon always introduces a new type of positive energy for humanity to embrace and then integrate. Adding Mercury and Pluto to the archetype of Capricorn makes this New Moon stand out because of the way these planets interact with the natural practicality contained in the Earth element of Capricorn.

One of the practical aspects of Capricorn lies in the ability to mobilize your own power as an expression of personal wealth. This wealth is valuable as it brings together a sense of group effort for a harmonious and common good. Pluto adds the pure power of transforming body, mind, and spirit to work with Mercury. This Pluto / Mercury combination allows for good decision-making as you count your blessings and see the positive results.

Over the past two weeks, I have looked ahead at every New Moon and Full Moon for the entire coming year. We all have a powerful year ahead of us, with some incredibly positive energies coming in March and April. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year and wish the same for you. Blessing to all my friends.

Christmas Full Moon 2015

Full Moon Astrology Article: A Royal Banquet for the Soul

Our Christmas Full Moon of 2015 will be an event to be remembered, not only for the glittering lights and gifts that accompany the season, but for the coalescing of all the energies that have come together on this auspicious day. It is precisely this energetic coming-together that creates the larger opportunity for a “royal banquet,” rather than a mere social gathering.

The astrology of this year’s Christmas Day is quite fascinating. There are three main elements that stand out in our Christmas astrology chart. Together they create this special celebration and opportunity.

The first element relates to the word “royal” that I have specifically chosen to describe the special significance of what’s being celebrated beyond the traditional festivities of the day. The exact Sabian Degree for the Moon suggests that the Christmas energies are illuminating your own connection to your higher-self and Soul.


This implies that this Full Moon is creating a higher connection and an awareness of your soul that accompanies your Christmas celebration this year. This is the deeper meaning of A royal banquet for the soul.”

Christmas Full Moon Astrology Chart for Dec 25, 2015The second element that stands out is a prominent opposition between Mars and Uranus. There is much craziness in the world right now, and that is being reflected in this opposition position between Mars & Uranus. However, along with this craziness, there are also neutralizing energies providing the opportunity for a positive choice and outcome.

Since the middle of November, with each New and Full Moon, I have observed these competing energies and they have clearly been available for a higher purpose. These current experiences of contrast are enabling us the access to transforming types of activities that neutralize conflict and support a more positive outcome.

Our Christmas astrology chart indicates this same neutralizing energy to the potentially disrupting Mars/Uranus pattern. Instead of the typical unexpected conflict often associated with this Mars/Uranus configuration, we have for a brief time (Christmas Day) the ability to see beneath the outer phenomenon of the world, to the inner structure of events, with their hidden reality.

Throughout the ages, glimpsing the deeper meaning of Christmas has been a cherished part of our traditions. This Christmas provides the energies to make “seeing beyond” even easier. This provides a practical way to see beyond any conflicting energies you may experience, both on a personal level and also larger global circumstances.

The third and last element I find super interesting is in the coincidence of the exact Universal Time of the Full Moon. The Full Moon occurs at 3:11 AM on the west coast, but the Universal Time is “11:11”. When we also take into consideration that our current Lunar cycle is “Dec 11 to Jan 11,” we another 11:11 synchronicity. This pattern is definitely worth noting.

Although there are many interesting and varied ideas and interpretations for the numerological meaning of the 11:11 pattern, let’s keep it simple and just focus on the current context of it occurring on Christmas Day, at the Full Moon, and with a specific astrological pattern of turning conflict into peace, with an ability to see beyond our normal perceptions of what we call ‘reality.’

Taking in all of this current context, our “11:11” coincidence takes on a more significant meaning which can be summarized with the title of this article, “A Royal Banquet for the Soul.” What’s implied with “11:11” is an energetic doorway or “portal” to a larger and divine aspect of yourself. This aspect is your “Royal Self” seeking embodiment in human form. This is also what’s often referred to as embracing the Christ Consciousness.

Christmas Day this year is indeed a special day. Celebrate, rejoice, and connect with that aspect of your own divinity which is reborn at each and every Winter Solstice.

Blessings to all, and have a wonderful Christmas.

Winter Solstice 2015: The Next Cosmic Trigger

Winter Solstice 2015: The Next Cosmic Trigger

Winter Solstice each and every year is an important and powerful milestone. This year’s Winter Solstice is perhaps the most spectacular event I’ve covered since the ending of the Mayan Calendar on Dec 21, 2012. I believe it’s more than just a coincidence that the Mayan calendar ended exactly three years ago. The number three (3) holds the same frequency as the planet Venus, which gives us some important insight into a special opportunity that goes beyond what is already special about this holiday season.

Solstice Mountain Moon 2015

The Reason this Winter Solstice is so Important

This year’s Winter Solstice is activating an awakening of consciousness that has the potential to be a game changer. What is implied is a dramatic and fundamental change in how we response to our own authoritarian patterns of aggression and how this pattern is reinforced within society. This cosmic trigger is awakening all of human consciousness to the potential for healing internal personal patterns, especially those that result from aggression and imbalance of power. In the biggest picture, this Solstice gives us the power and possibility for world peace.

Winter Solstice Kite Astrology Chart 2015I would like to bring to your attention our magnificent astrology chart for Dec 21, 2015. Contained within the overall astrological pattern is a very special configuration called an “Astrological Kite Formation.”  If you look at the Winter Solstice astrology chart you can see the unmistakable outline of a kite. An astrological kite is one of the most powerful astrological patterns that exists.

For those who are interested in what makes an astrological kite pattern so special, be sure to read my companion article “The Unique and Special Nature of the Astrology Kite Pattern.” This  advanced article breaks down in complete detail the astrology behind the powerful kite.

The nature of this Winter Solstice kite presents a powerful paradox. On one hand, there is the opportunity to experience new levels of peace, not just on a personal but also a planetary level. On the other hand, in addition to peace there is an equal opportunity for conflict. This conflict takes the form of deep patterns of aggression, and must be resolved in order to move forward in life with love and understanding.

What is required is that we collectively say “No” to the aggressive elements within ourselves and within society. “Aggressive elements” in this case pertain to anything or anyone holding authority over you with the intent to control or suppress. On a global scale we release this pattern by accessing peace within and then working together to create peace in the world.

Within the paradox that must resolved, the Winter Solstice kite pattern offers a spiritual outcome that has the potential to be a life-changing event.  The fact that this powerful kite occurs at the exact moment of Winter Solstice  provides the additional energetic shift that inspires and activates the full potential. As the solar day-force awakens and reverses the trend of lengthening night, so the basic energies of Winter Solstice reawaken our individual potential for power and personal authority.

Planetary Influences within the Kite

Solstice Planetary Alignment Dec 21 2015This reawakening that always accompanies Solstice is also embedded within this year’s kite pattern theme of  claiming your authentic authority in the world. The spiritual activation of the kite pattern represents an intense acceleration in growth. This acceleration is indicated by the Mercury/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. As the Zodiac sign for winter solstice, Capricorn grounds this capacity for stepping into personal power.

Venus and Jupiter also have very significant roles in the kite. Venus in Scorpio indicates that if a life full of “harmony” is seen as something of value, then what must be incorporated and integrated is a complete resistance and refusal to accept all aggressive forms of authority, both within and without. Freedom, both inner and outer, must now become a forefront value that anchors your individual actions with a positive attitude grounded in service to others and the greater good.

Jupiter expresses that same sentiment of service, as well as the sentiment of freedom from aggression, by reconditioning your emotional response against all forms of aggression.   Jupiter in Virgo awakens and activates the character within each of us to shape the world towards cooperation for all people everywhere. On a global level there are currently powerful factions polarizing and escalating conflict. This solstice kite gives you the power to add your influence for peace.

The Moon’s position in the kite pattern is most unusual in that it brings a purity to this amazing configuration. The Moon’s position in Taurus makes this Winter Solstice very personal in order to purify and clear away and all internal programming that is fear-based. Specifically, these are any conscious or subconscious beliefs that tell you  who, what, and when to fear. Aggressive power rules and dominates by creating fear. By stepping out of fear you are able to more fully receive the gift of this Solstice, which is your own power and authority to contribute to Peace in the world.

Astrology Article: Preparing for Future Events

Our New Moon Astrology is focused on the Sun and Moon at 20° Sagittarius. The integrated energy of this New Moon will help you on an individual level to prepare for upcoming future events. This type of supporting energy is designed to help you manage future circumstances in your life in a positive and loving way.

The raw energy of Sagittarius is supporting the New Moon through new levels of understanding. One element of this understanding is an awareness of the unfolding of events through the ebb and flow of larger currents and cycles of time.

With this understanding comes a responsibility to act on this new awareness. Your actions this month are supported with this New Moon’s quality of ingenuity that brings a creative mindset to how you interact with your life, both now and moving forward.

Taking action now with the energy of foresight will help you prepare for the future so that the future doesn’t catch you unawares.

This entire Lunar month, ending with the next New Moon on January 9th, you can focus on your circumstances with a creative mindset that leads to the ingenuity and foresight that will prepare you for future events. This is not a dire warning of impending doom, but encouragement for a type of foresight that’s enabled by an understanding of the ebb and flow of patterns and cycles and the direction of events. This perspective of foresight connects your personal circumstances to larger events that are happening in the world.

The practical message contained within December’s New Moon helps you to connect with and understand the patterns of what’s happening around you. Ask yourself, “What are the larger patterns developing in my circle of influence? How are these patterns connected to the larger patterns in my life, and how do these patterns connect me to the larger patterns on earth?”

Astrology Pattern: Personal Foresight through Understanding

New Moon astrology chart for Dec 11, 2015Our New Moon astrology pattern is powerfully positioned to aid in developing a deeper understanding of your personal circumstances, and then using both ingenuity and foresight to initiate your response.

Saturn is directly influencing the New Moon through awareness of your concerns with society and your culture. Saturn represents an anchor and a point of reference enabling you to put into action your own style of ingenuity. As you move forward this month, you can act from a place of understanding the direction things are going. This allows you to act with foresight, or at least react with the expectation of a positive outcome.

Uranus and Jupiter are positioned to make the overall pattern extremely powerful. Uranus brings insight and foresight, available through an inward withdrawal of your outward attention. You’ll be able to clearly observe outer events from an internal perspective. Jupiter’s’ position in our astrology chart gives you access to a new level of ingenuity, combined with the patience to plan ahead and anticipate circumstance.

Overall, our New Moon astrology chart demonstrates new energy that you can access for the purpose of anticipating future events in a prepared way.

I’m looking forward to an inspiring Full Moon which falls on Christmas Day, December 25th. As we also anticipate Winter Solstice, I send blessings and positive energies to all my friends.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Remembering Your Past

This Full Moon opens up and reveals a personal opportunity that may have been hidden from you until now. The energies that are coming through our Gemini Moon are centered around a new discovery in your life. Specifically, this discovery represents an ability to summon and retrieve old memories that are held underneath the surface of your consciousness. These may be forgotten memories from this lifetime, or even past life memories. Whatever the source, these memories will connect you to the very source of your being and your highest purpose.

Full Moon Astrology Chart for Nov 2015Our current planetary alignment is supporting the discovery of new information that connects you to Source energy. This influx in knowledge is all around you just waiting to be discovered. For the next two weeks, you may have the experience of remembering things from your past that may have been forgotten, but are now important for the evolution of your consciousness.

This new information may be accessed through a variety of sources. It will be almost as if memories are being triggered by experiences, places, or perhaps even people. Be open minded and fully allow events in your life to trigger this process. It’s the universe’s attempt to trigger your own deeper connection with your past and your own connection to Source.

Above all else, remember that the Universe is a loving, living energy system that is helping with your own evolution of consciousness. Astrology is simply an advanced cosmic language to help us remember our individual connection to a greater reality.

Blessings to all, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Astrology Article: A Hidden Opportunity

Happy New Moon.

The New Moon energy from this week’s November 20° Scorpio Sun and Moon conjunction is focused on the discovery of hidden opportunity.

New Moon Nov 2015New choices and opportunities may be directly in front of you, yet remain undiscovered. In order to actualize these undiscovered potentials you must find your own hidden pathway. Harnessing Scorpio’s energy of faith and courage will aid in your search for the hidden. In Scorpio, “faith” is the underlying substance of your intention to move forward in life, whereas “courage” is the acceptance of what will come next.

This New Moon may also activate a deeper search for the path leading you toward a more mystical type of beingness. This is a life characterized by faith and courage, where the darkness of fear and self-importance disappear. It’s a life that’s lived with reliance on inner guidance, capable of rising above the “Scorpio shadow” of self-serving morality, and soaring the heights of personal power and growth.

During the remainder of this Lunar cycle (through Dec 11th), choose to live life while embracing the Scorpio qualities of faith and courage. This will facilitate your discovery of new opportunities as hidden paths begin to open up, revealing your next steps toward personal success.

Full Moon in October 2015

Full Moon Astrology Article: The Power of Wealth is Coming Your Way

The Taurus Full Moon is offering you the opportunity to open up to receive new forms of wealth at every level of life.

Taurus represents all forms of health and abundant well-being, including the gathering of resources that are important for personal success. The Sun is opposite in Scorpio. Scorpio brings a depth of power and personal meaning to this Full Moon, with the ability to connect to the deeper level of what wealth represents.

This symbology of wealth is individual to each person and can be experienced in many ways.

The specific indicator for receiving new wealth can be found in this astrology chart with the Sabian Symbol for 4° Taurus. This zodiac degree is associated with the symbol of the rainbow, more specifically with the point where Heaven touches the Earth. At the end of this rainbow we find the pot of gold.

ARCHETYPE: Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature together.
THEME: Communion
COMMENTARY: True wealth comes from a commerce made up of the sharing and commingling of minds. Wealth can also symbolize an exchange using contracts and commerce to form the basis of a deeper faith based in the validity of an honored promise. At a higher level, this promise becomes the fruit of relationship where beings of Light live by the transformation of matter into wealth.

The wealth of this Full Moon can be understood by the symbol of the rainbow. When celestial light breaks into the seven rays of colored light our experiences are transformed. Wealth occurs on every level as the material substances of Earth herself are transformed into abundance.

There are various forms of wealth that connect us with the promise of abundant well-being that results from the marriage of the natures of Earth and Heaven. In addition to physical manifestation the wealth can also take the form of relationships including  communication, the sharing of experiences and commitments.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Astrology Chart for Oct 27, 2015Pluto occupies a key position in the astrology pattern. Pluto in Capricorn acts as a fulcrum between Sun and the Moon, balancing and anchoring the potential for wealth. Pluto has the capacity to transforming your experiences into wealth, either of physical resources or collaborative relationships.

This Full Moon indicates that wealth is on its way and will arrive in one of a variety of forms. You may experience new wealth this month in the form of new financial resources or through relationships. The wealth in relationships can come through creative collaboration and the comingling of minds or as the result of a promise or contract with others.

Everyone, in her or his own way, will have the opportunity to experience new forms of wealth and abundance in the coming days.

To experience your fullest potential in the coming month allow this energy to guide you, especially while adjusting to changing circumstances.

Astrology Article: A Solid Step Forward

We are currently in a phase of growth initiated by the Lunar Eclipse two weeks ago. The New Moon supports this opportunity for growth by bringing a stabilizing force to your life enabling you to step into a larger relationship with your community, and by extension, the entire universe.

During the coming Lunar month, circumstances will provide opportunities to take action that will allow you to inspire others and serve your fellow human beings in a larger, even spectacular, way.

This stabilizing factor is normally assigned to the energies of Saturn. With Saturn in Sagittarius, stability is found through a deeper understanding of how the natural contrast between opposites can be connected. This “understanding” becomes a matter of perspective. When any of us are willing to rise far enough above the contrast, opposites become connected through being recognized as part of the next larger whole.

This ability for new perspective is part of living multi-dimensionally, which is the gift of the current Lunar eclipse.

In addition to support from Saturn, the overall pattern of this New Moon is also deeply connected to the outer planets of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The pattern of the outer planets emphasizes an ability to transcend circumstances in order to bring the larger perspective of your life into a clearer focus.

Astrology Pattern: Expanding with Focus, Stability, and Success

New Moon Astrology Chart for Oct 2015One of the powerful elements of this New Moon astrology chart is the grouping of Venus, Mars, and Jupiter. Their pattern in the chart occurs in the same natural order, or sequence, as they do in the solar system. This natural order is significant by itself, but when you add the fact that they are grouped in Virgo, with the New Moon is occurring in the next sign of Libra, it becomes even more significant.

Virgo’s energy encompasses the final preparations and improvements needed to dedicate energies to something larger, be it your community, group, planet, or the entire universe. With this planetary support in Virgo, the New Moon in Libra is able to create a new focus in your life in order to expand, connect, and create a relationship with something larger than just yourself.

The stabilizing strength of this chart is further amplified by the fact that the four outer planets, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all in one hemisphere, while all the other planets are in the other. This hemisphere division is defined by Taurus and Scorpio and creates the opportunity for you to connect even more with this new capacity to understand the practicality of life (Taurus) from a larger perspective and deeper understanding (Scorpio).

This natural contrast of the divisions of the planets contains one of the most potent indicators of expansion and evolution that can exist in a New Moon astrology pattern. It naturally creates a pattern of success through focus and stability.


The Eclipse portal from the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse two weeks ago is supporting you now to expand into new dimensions of awareness.  (Lunar Eclipse Article: Sept 27, 2015) The Libra New Moon is supporting your growth by creating a new focus that allows you to expand, but it does so in a very stable and secure manner. Building success in your life this month can easily be a thing of beauty, where focus and stabilizing energies come together with expansion in a perfect way.

Full Moon Partial Eclipse

Full Moon Astrology Article: Stepping into a New Dimension

This Lunar Eclipse brings a remarkable and potentially life-changing opportunity. With this astrology chart I see us literally being offered the opportunity to step into a new dimension, or frequency, of life.

This opportunity is delivered through a complex energy pattern offering two complementary and distinct processes for growth.

Two Distinct Patterns for Expansion

Lunar-Eclipse-Chart-Sept-2015The two simultaneous patterns that are supporting the expansion are very different and equally powerful. You can see the patterns illustrated in the chart as T-squares (triangles). One is ruled by Saturn, and also involves Neptune, Jupiter and Mars. The other involving the Sun and Moon is ruled by Pluto. Both configurations support transformation but in very different ways.

The pattern ruled by Saturn involves transformation through your current relationships, social structure and life circumstances. The pattern ruled by Pluto involves transformation from within. The Pluto configuration is purely internal, not dependent on external circumstances or relationships.

Both patterns are of value. There’s not a right or wrong path but most likely one process will resonate more than the other. It’s important to note your own preferences and also to be aware that both processes will be operating simultaneously in your life.

Transformation through Relationships

The pattern ruled by Saturn supports transformation through your current life and existing experiences and relationships. Neptune adds a complex element because while Saturn is concrete and practical, Neptune is abstract and more spiritual than practical. Neptune is all about dissolving patterns, letting go, and ushering in a new matrix for operating at a higher level.

In this case they are working together, along with Mars and Jupiter, to further practical goals. At the same time there is also a natural support for letting go which allows the moving forward. This letting go is the Neptune aspect, transforming the old and releasing whatever is unnecessary.

What is being perpetuated and carried forward are the ideals rooted in the current patterns of your life. At the same time, whatever is limiting is being dissolved.

This is not an easy configuration. The simultaneous actions of Saturn and Neptune can feel confusing. In the coming days it might be hard to know what needs to be released and what needs to be preserved. You can trust that these are important questions that need to be resolved, and part of the opportunity of this process.

Transformation from Within

The T-square pattern ruled by Pluto doesn’t care about current circumstances, or the past or future. It’s not attached to the existing structure of your life. Indeed, it doesn’t care about ‘preserving’ anything.

This pattern is about creating something brand new. It is only concerned with the transformation that comes about from a new factor or opportunity that is being introduced with this Eclipse. You will experience this transformation internally, rather than through your circumstances.

The Aries Full Moon in the configuration of the T-square with Pluto, emphasizes that this pattern of transformation is more personal and individual. Aries lends an infusion of power and creative vitality, along with the inspiration to create something brand new.

The opportunity for transformation is emphasized by the Sabian symbol for 5 degrees Aries, which is “Wings,” and “A New Dimension Offering Transcendence.” This symbol describes the energy signature of the portal which opens at this location in the zodiac.

Extra Support for the Challenge

The challenge with the complexity of this chart is that these two concepts have to be able to work together in order for you to fully experience success or positive growth.

Although both patterns can result in positive growth, the reality is that they are very different. Since both will be happening simultaneously, the result can feel confusing or even chaotic.

Support to balance the conflicting patterns comes from the North Node which is conjunct the Sun and Mercury. This is a very positive formation that supports your ability to come to alignment with the bigger potentials.

The North Node formation appears as a type of polarization that will help you illuminate and clarify extremes and opposites. For example, you will have clear perceptions of the extremes of where you are now, and where you want to go.

From the North Node you can also access clarity to understand the challenges or contradictions within the seemingly conflicting patterns that might otherwise feel chaotic.


Lunar Eclipses always offer the opportunity for a quantum leap forward. You can make enormous strides in the coming days, especially if you can be patient with any accompanying intensity you may experience.

This Eclipse brings the experience of a “new dimension” into reality in a variety of ways. The “new dimension” can be reached through engagement in your relationships and circumstances, or through internal transformation, or a through a combination of both. The choice is up to you as you follow your own best path.

Through my experience with clients I understand that many people will feel drawn to one of these processes more than the other. Your preference is determined by your personal astrological patterns. Remember, neither approach is good or bad, it’s just that you have a natural constitutional comfort level with one or the other.

What’s importance to realize is that this Lunar Eclipse Portal is transmitting to each person the blueprint of a new dimension. This is a special event that you can use to grow, change, and transform into a more expanded version of You.

By being aware of both of these patterns you can hopefully more easily navigate the opportunities as well as whatever challenges or confusion results.

This is a month of unprecedented opportunity. I wish you well.

Astrology Article: Expanding Through the Vitality of Life-Force

This month’s New Moon in Virgo is supported by a strong astrological pattern with a powerful energizing effect to support positive changes in your life. This month your expansion will come as you learn new mastery of your life force. The biggest opportunity for practicing this new mastery is through your ability to integrate and expand through personal relationships and combined group efforts.

Improving and refining are two things Virgo excels at. A third aspect of Virgo excellence is finding meaning through your work. This is effort or work that expands your life force and activates an emotional response that supports you working toward a greater purpose. There’s the potential to expand into a new sense of personal fulfillment, as you align with greater purpose to your own dharma.

Your work or participation in a group project or endeavor will support your growth, especially if this feeling of greater purpose is infused with your personal vitality and life-force. These group endeavors may include any activity, such as a sport, a business team, or a personal relationship.

One key to successfully linking your life-force to your team is through the technique of training and discipline. Mastery over your own chi is the result of training. Bringing new awareness to the discipline of mastering your life-force is commonly learned through participation in traditional sports teams, as well as activities such as Chi Gong, martial arts, yoga, hiking, and golf. This list is by no means exhaustive.

It’s important that this type of physical mastery is tied to a larger purpose, otherwise the shadow aspect of ego can rule over the physical plane, resulting in various forms of arrogance.

Mastering your life force in creative ways does not necessarily come naturally. We all have the capacity to successfully channel life-force into our endeavors, but excellence in the physical requires both time and skill to fully develop. Virgo excels at both training and discipline, which requires emotional commitment. This is especially true with Jupiter in such a strong astrological position.

With Venus balsamic to Mars, this can also be a good time for relationships that are in need of improvement. The key for relationships with this Moon is to find a greater combined purpose through the linking of your personal vitality with others. When you connect this way you will access the energy that is needed to transform your relationships in a positive way.

Astrology Pattern

New Moon Astrology Chart for Sept 2015There is a balsamic Venus conjunct Mars in the zodiac sign of Leo. This planetary configuration supports relationships through the natural process of transformation. This process could mean a natural ending for some relationships, however most relationships will simply let go of old patterns as they prepare to embrace new and stronger values that connect and promote growth together.

Jupiter in Virgo opposite Neptune supports awareness of the magnitude of energy available, as well as insight into techniques for managing your life-force for personal expansion.

With the New Moon conjunct the Moon’s North Node, developing a new life skill that enhances your own fulfillment is a real possibility. This North Node position is an indicator of the greater importance this New Moon can play in the bigger picture of your life.

The support for expansion through training and discipline comes from a combination of factors, including natural support from Virgo, emphasis from North Node, and the expansion of both awareness and management from the Jupiter configuration.

The Solar Eclipse

When the Moon passes directly between Earth and the Sun we experience a solar eclipse. At this moment in time, the new lunar cycle is infused with a boost of additional Solar purpose, which offers extra support to the potentials of the New Moon. This extra support also sets the stage for the upcoming lunar eclipse on Sept 27.

This month’s additional solar purpose (at the solar eclipse) expands your life experience to become more authentic. More in alignment with who you really are and with your purpose. This enables you to transmit this experience into something useful through the skillful use of your life-force. In other words, this solar eclipse is preparing you for expanding your awareness into a more pure form of “being-ness.” All of these potentials will be explored further in the upcoming Lunar Eclipse article.

The opportunities this month, including the upcoming Lunar Eclipse, are uniquely positioned to take your life to the next level. Have a fantastic lunar month.
