Bluebird Spirit
HAPPINESS

You follow the sweet songs of birds into the forest. As you find the source of the sound, you see in the tree above you a flock of bluebirds. The bright color of their wings shimmers in the sunlight. Their song envelops you in a soft embrace of bliss.

This card is a harbinger of delight. Celebrate and have fun! Embrace life, yourself, and others. Say yes today! Soar to the clouds and let your doubts dissolve. All is well. It's simple: Your purpose in life is to experience happiness! That's all that's required of you as a soul. You do not need to be unhappy to please another.

Whatever your circumstances, there's always something that can bring you delight, and what you put your attention on will grow.  When you focus on the areas of your life that bring you happiness, these areas will prosper.

One of the fastest paths to true pleasure is through sharing and giving, so give of your heart and share your love. Happiness spreads to others like wildfire and can help heal the world. Dance and sing with abandon: Joy is your spiritual birthright. Affirm, Happiness and ecstasy flow through me wildly and freely.

The Spirit of the Bluebird says: All is well.
Say yes to life and let your doubts dissolve.
Don't wait until the future, live life fully now.
You do not need to struggle or suffer to grow— you can grow leaps and bounds amid joy!

Moon goes void of course today @ 5:58 PM, EST until it enters Leo overnight @ 2:37 AM, EST, 10th House, the natural home of Capricorn ruled by Saturn, followed soon by the Full Moon @ 12:54 PM EST, 4th House, the natural home of Cancer ruled by the Moon.

Moon in Leo Transit

The Moon in Leo is a return to our inner child, as Leo's natural home is the 5th House ruled by the Sun. It's a house of creativity and life featuring romance, affairs, children, and amusements! Highly creative Leo loves to be the center of attention and has a great sense of humor. Our need for recognition, praise, and affection are amplified with the transiting Moon.

We feel more imaginative, creative, and embrace a sense of freedom with this energy. We seem to innately recognize solutions to problems that aren't readily apparent. This is because our imagination also includes inventive thinking that reveals a new dimension to all relationships, personal and business. It is here we are at our most inspiring, and our energy is infectious, inspiring others right along with us!

A caveat is our ego, which may feel slighted if we don't perceive we are getting the attention, affection, or praise we deserve. Yes, we know our worth and the value of our contributions; however, without keeping our expectations of others in check, there could be trouble in the Lion's den!

Moon in Leo Natal

Those with this natal configuration are often generous, dignified, and magnanimous. While they will leave things alone unless personally concerned, they love to get involved in causes that are worthwhile, and work hard toward achievement. Once they have decided to act, they are resentful of interference and criticism because they are emotionally attached to their belongings and whatever reflects on their ego.

Self-centered and somewhat pompous, the Lion is known for his pride and expects to be praised, or at least noticed, for their achievements. And just in case anyone has missed those accomplishments, Leo isn't shy about announcing them! They are able to make quick, accurate evaluations of other people and their motives, and their fiery temperament can quickly cut other people down to size.

Yet they have a blind spot or lack of objectivity in their emotional perspective and can become overly dramatic, domineering, and commanding. Their heart must be involved to truly enjoy any relationship, and they love to impress their friends and family through storytelling of past experiences and adventures.

They are sexually magnetic and charming but may also be arrogant. In a man's chart it makes him romantic, fun, and sexy, as long as conceit and/or an overbearing ego doesn't get in the way. He seeks a partner with flair, enthusiasm, and good taste. Women with this placement are highly attractive and magnetic as well.

They are straightforward and their honest intentions are apparent; however, there is a tendency to become bossy and domineering.

Being a 5th house native, they love the arts, music, luxury, children, and typically have a sunny disposition. Their emotions in this aspect are powerful and they give affection generously. They are warmhearted, strong-willed, and free-spirited.

Ruled by the Sun, Leo's personality is a bright and courageous. In this natal aspect, they are born entertainers who live life with a flair for drama and stage production.
They'll surround themselves by admirers but will defend their reputation passionately! Take care of negative criticism or interference lest you meet the Lion's wrath!

Aspecting the Cosmos, Thu, Jan 25, 2024: FABULOUS day to overcome challenges and transform blocks into steps to increase our earning potential. The magic of childhood memories are the keys to our wounds.

Moon enters Leo: http://www.inspiritualservice.com/planetary-transits-2024

Full Moon in Leo: http://www.inspiritualservice.com/celestial-events-2024

Early morning the Leo Moon inconjunct Venus in Capricorn: Relationship or perhaps work environment tension. This is an emotionally dramatic moon with a tendency for self-focus. Curb expectations to avoid disappointment.

Right after lunch Mars in Capricorn square Chiron in Aries while the Aquarius Sun oppose the Leo Moon: What wound has surfaced from disappointment or hurt feelings? Feeling left out? Uncertain? Doubt? What wound is this? It's a symptom. Trace it back to its roots to release its truth.

Midafternoon the Moon inconjunct Saturn in Pisces: Have we learned the truth? Did we unearth the light in the lesson? It's one we'll never forget. Reach for a higher reasoning to adjust our perspective and pull us from emotional dramatics that may damage our reputation of profession.

Late afternoon Moon square Jupiter in Taurus: Did we reach for that higher perspective to sate our emotions and feelings of self-worth and values? Transforming this block into a step can expand our earning potential. Don't be so closed to a truth we may not wish to know. It's a harbinger.

Frog Spirit
Renewal

A large golden-brown frog sits heavy on a lily pad in a still pond, as a warm, sleepy dusk dissolves into night. Its deep, sonorous song reverberates through the rising chirps of crickets. The chorus of the frogs is raucous and. joyous, seeming to echo loudly in your soul.  A gaggle of tadpoles lurks at the edge of the pond, hidden and safe, waiting with expectant patience until their metamorphosis occurs.

The frog's three stages of development (egg, tadpole, fully formed amphibian) symbolize renewal, resurrection, and transformation. This card speaks of a profound restoration of your life that is occurring. It's never too late to begin again. If your past was less than successful, remember this-what has occurred does not need to mandate what will occur. You can start out fresh and new.  However, if you do what you have always done, you will get what you've always gotten.  In order to reboot your life, you need to do things in a different way. Abounding good luck is activated and awaiting you!

Reflect on the varying symbolism of the frog in different cultural traditions, and see if any meanings resonate for you at this time: In ancient Egypt, the frog symbolized birth and rebirth. In certain Native American traditions, frog medicine is healing by virtue of its transformative life. Ancient Celts believed frogs represented healing because of its connection with water and the way that it transforms from tadpole to adult. In China, the frog is a powerful symbol of prosperity, healthy childbirth, and good luck.

The Spirit of the Frog says: Be willing to release any preconceived notions of how life should unfold. This is a time to be adaptable.  Be willing to change; abundance and good fortune will follow.

The moon moved into Leo at 2:37 AM EST, just in time to grace the Leo Full Moon today @ 12:54 PM ( EST ).

With this "spotlight" lunation comes vivaciousness, stability, consistency, and passion. Pay more attention to reality, and face life with a more pragmatic and stable attitude. Leo is a fire sign ruled by the Sun, who reminds us to emphasize and focus awareness of ourselves.

This is the time to shine and discover the beauty in all parts of ourselves. Yes, even the shadow-aspects that encompass fear or rejection. Without contrast, courage is unneeded. Integration will facilitate a realignment with every part of our authentic selves. To deny any part of us is to deny the opportunity to heal and grow from that which we hide from others and deny ourselves.

Truth as well as light is in the wound, waiting to be released by the Courage that Leo provides. If you need assistance, then talk with your partner, a trusted friend or colleague, or even a counselor. Vulnerability is difficult for this lunation because Leo is associated with ego and pride. However, it's also associated with heart and generosity. Opening our hearts to allow the light to illuminate it will make us even more courageous.

Not to mention healed.

According to Native American legend:

"Native American tribes have labeled full moons for many reasons. This particular full moon is called the Wolf Moon. It is said to be the time wolves howl loudly at the moon.

"They are crying out in hunger as the cold season has left them with fewer prey options. This has also been referred to as the Spirit Moon because it is the first full moon of the year, indicating the importance of setting intentions and goals.

"The wolf moon can evoke an animalist desire to be free, to be wild, untamed, to crave, and to pursue the things that we’re naturally drawn to. Even if it doesn’t make you money, even if it’s not particularly profound according to worldly standards, the full moon wants you to go after what your soul craves."

Being this is the first Full Moon of the year known also as "Spirit Moon", rituals are sacred investments in ourselves, our abilities, and the healing of parts of us that have experienced negative circumstances such as betrayal, rejection, etc.

It's time to howl at the Moon. Perhaps a sacred salt bath. Spiritual music. White candles. And some of the most important releases and intentions of the year.

Blessed Full Wolf Moon!

Ritual is so sacred and truly connects us to the Source of our divinity. I was bummed when I saw the rainy forecast for today; however, it turned out to be a blessing. Moongazing under a clear sky is magical, but honoring what you can't see is even more in keeping with faith that it's there, and always will be.

Aspecting the Cosmos, Fri, Jan 26, 2024: There's a plethora of energy this morning but a cosmic way to navigate it. The power to alter circumstance lies within our ability to alter perspective.  

Midmorning Mercury in Capricorn square Chiron in Aries while the Moon in Leo trine Chiron inconjunct Mercury, all within 8 minutes of each other. Each of these planets are on the 15th critical degree of their signs, which carry all the domains of Gemini relating to communication. If we cannot express ourselves, or there is a breakdown in expression between others, draw back to reassess.

Late morning the Aquarius Sun sesquiquadrate Juno in Virgo, the Moon inconjunct Mars in Capricorn, Venus sesquiquadrate Uranus in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces square Ceres in Sagittarius, ALL within 50 minutes of each other. A challenging vein of Karma is running through these aspects which requires an adjustment in attitude or patterns.

Self-evaluation is warranted here. Don't pass the buck or blame others. This too will pass.

Midafternoon the Moon trine North Node in Aries sextile South Node in Libra. While our innate talents are a comfortable home to us, they're not our destiny. Work the energy to expand on what we know so we can outgrow the box.

Late afternoon the Moon square Uranus. Here's the unexpected change and/or emotional upheaval mentioned earlier. Did we listen to our Soul earlier? Can we hear it now? The power to alter our circumstances lies within the ability to alter our perspective.

Standing Stones
Passage

As you walk, you come across large vertical stones standing in a circle in the center of the sacred forest. You know that to step inside this sacred ring is not to be undertaken lightly. It is an act of power. With solemn grace you enter.  Immediately you feel a shift occur within you. It's as if the floodgates of your soul have opened, and there is a download of cosmic information occurring within you.

Many believe that standing stones are a place that allows one to embark on spiritual journeys from one realm to another. They can also mark the transition from one stage of life to another. Remember that although life changes, you are eternal. Celebrate all the transitions in life, and you'll experience profound harmony.

A voyage of the heart and soul is ahead.
This journey may be spiritual or physical in nature; in either case, it is a kind of sacred pilgrimage. Have courage. A great ship can stay safe in the harbor, but that is not what great ships are made for. Be willing to unfurl your sails and set forth to the open seas. The seas might be rough and the wind is strong, but you are safe and protected. The circle of stones takes you exactly where you need to go.

Since the earliest days of humanity, standing stones have been created as places of ceremonies and as ways to honor the Divine.  Archaeologists have found some that date back to 4000 B.c.E. Neolithic people didn't have written language, yet their art and stone circles (sometimes oval- or horseshoe-shaped) suggest that they held religious rituals at these ceremonial meeting places.

The Spirit of the Standing Stones says: A sacred journey is ahead. Deeper meaning is waiting to be discovered. You are safe.

Moon in Leo goes VOID of COURSE @ 4:19 PM today until it enters Virgo tomorrow afternoon @ 2:12 PM EST.

The Moon in Virgo presents motivation and inspiration with a side-helping of reality. Read more for transit and natal aspects.

Moon in Virgo Transit:

Virgo Energy encompasses simplicity, as well as appreciation of beauty. The Virgo lesson is adaptability to ever-changing circumstance. Combined with the energy of the Moon makes is a perfect time to slow down and get organized to avoid the overwhelm of complication.

Life is full of the unknown and we never know what curveballs will be thrown our way on any given day.  Stay grounded and you have a better chance of navigating through the things that are coming.

This applies to personal situations, opportunities, and offers. Make sure to consider the legal aspects of small print. Good thing Virgo's influence is logic and practicality, which can assist you to slow down and think before you speak or act.

Virgo energy is laser-focused on the details. This could come off as criticism, but it's a part of Virgo's love language: they want to improve everything. This can risk crossing over into perfectionism; therefore, keep the criticisms to a minimum regardless of how good your intentions.  Instead, refocus on the attainment of your goals. This includes anticipating potential blocks which may arise to slow you down. Make sure that backup plans include alternative routes to get where you're going.

Earthy Virgo creates a perfect platform to spend some peaceful time in nature. Because she is all about health, focusing on healing through meditation. Perhaps you're ready to pick up a healthier habit by releasing an old one.  Now is the opportune time to put it into motion.

Moon in Virgo Natal:

If your natal Moon is in Virgo, you are known as emotionally discriminating. You respond to encouragement, appreciation, and have a deep hunger for sharing experiences and self-realization with others. Take care that this hunger doesn't make you overeager or prone to dictating the course of your relationships. You can be very insistent and even petulant if not aware because you want what you want the way you want it.

Generous with your time and service, you enjoy helping others but have difficulty understanding their feelings. This natal aspect emphasizes your mental qualities sans the restless nature of Gemini. Instead, you demonstrate steadiness and practicality. You love the application of knowledge and don't seek it for its own sake. This enables you to analyze and criticize all sense impressions with care.

You possess a fondness for science and/or the occult and can be clairvoyant or psychometric and have a great intuitive ability if you choose to develop them.

Though temperamental at times, you prefer to earn everything by your mental ability and your fertile imagination. Despite the Virgo tendency to be picky and argumentative, you can appear quiet, shy, and unpretentious. Proper and conservative, your religious inclinations surface in a broad-minded way. With this mutable Moon, you have many acquaintances, frequent changes in your life and numerous short trips.

You are shrewd with a good business sense and meticulous attention to detail. You could do very well in psychoanalysis or diagnosis of any kind. Counteract fussiness or a lack of self-confidence.

In a woman's chart, this position can often indicate emotional insecurity, which expresses itself as a lack of warmth and at times inhibition. In a man's chart it attracts a detached, non-clinging mate, because he does not want emotional demands made on him.

Aspecting the Cosmos, Sat Jan 27, 2024: Refuse to pay any price for peace. Have the courage to stand up for ourselves the way we would those we love. This is moving forward.

Uranus stations direct: http://inspiritualservice.com/celestial-events-2024

Early morning the Moon in Leo square Pallas in Scorpio. Emotional drama blocking strategic wisdom and reason. This could affect our reputation and communal status. Avoid engaging in drama and focus on the task at hand.  

Midmorning Mercury in Capricorn conjunct Mars: Focus pays off with increased intellect and energy to see it through. We can gain much ground by keeping our head down and staying the course toward our goals.

Late tonight Mercury square the North Node in Aries and South Node in Libra: Tension and misperceived obstacles might have us afraid to leave our comfort zone or paying too high a price for peace. Focusing on our tasks doesn't equate to being a doormat. Stand our ground against fear. Courage and strength will get us to the other side.

Uranus stations and turns direct 19TAU05 @ 2:35 AM EST

The Wildcard of Astrology, Uranus, stations direct in Taurus today, heralding potential earthquakes ( metaphorically, of course ). I am being dramatic ( but not really ).  Uranus is also known as the "Awakener", and rules Aquarius, the sign of imagination, independence, and progressive thinking. Being known as the "Awakener", its actions are futuristic and follows a pattern of breaking of traditions. It's also considered the upper octave of Mercury and the first of the transcendental planets.

Wherever Uranus lies in your natal wheel is where you tend to do the unusual.

One of the most interesting things about Uranus is that it refuses to be rushed, taking 84 years to move through the entire zodiac.  That means it traverses each sign for about 7 years, so its effect is considered generational.

But is it really?  

Astrologers are more than aware that at any given moment, this planet can affect any individual without warning, as its energy is unpredictable, futuristic, and experimental.
Despite all that, Uranus does have a beautiful way of obliterating the walls of a belief system by revealing a much deeper truth. And while its energy can be unforgiving and seemingly reckless, like Aquarius, it's progressive at its core.

One of Uranus's deeper focuses is freedom, so during its retrograde, the flotsam and jetsam of jobs, relationships, living arrangements, systems of belief, and whatever other situations we felt constrained and/or unauthentic within should have floated to the surface.

Now it's cleanup time.

Connect to your heart first thing in the morning; it's energy will connect with other hearts emitting the same vibration. Whenever you feel yourself slip from a heart-centered state, engage is a practice to bring you back.

Closing your eyes for one minute to drop back into your heart can change the following moments.

• Tie up loose ends: Finish what you started or end it.

• Remain open: Entertain new possibilities, ideas, or systems of belief. There is no law that says you must adopt any of them.

• Focus on the Future: How can you help the planet? Whether it's environmental or humanitarian, choose some way to contribute.

I add something new each year. Three years ago, it was recyclable trash bags; the following year it was bamboo paper towels and tissues. Last year it was bamboo toilet paper. In this way I am contributing to the environment by switching from tree-based to total bamboo paper products.

• Stay Grounded: As previously stated, Uranus is unpredictable. Staying grounded helps keep anxiety and stress at bay. If you're an empath, or a highly sensitive person as I am, you'll be able to feel the vibrational undercurrent of the planet whether something is directly affecting your life or not.

• Join Likeminded: Now more than ever it's important to join with likeminded people to raise the vibration of the planet. Set certain times ( or even an alarm ) to ground deeper and mini-meditate throughout the day.

Let our focus be toward all creation for the sake of Love.

Aspecting the Cosmos, Sunday, Jan 28, 2024: Learning about something that interests us is highly favored this evening.

Early morning Mars squares the Nodes: Expect turbulent waters clashing between our obligations, assertiveness, and karmic path. Whatever areas of life this affects is our clue to focus with awareness. This proves easier for entrepreneurs. For others, integrating patience in divine timing proves a strong rudder to the rocking boat.

If not, be prepared for some tense interactions with others. We should express ourselves from a point of love so we can transcend this choppy sea.

Late afternoon Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus: Unexpected developments in relationships, goals, dreams, or wishes. Social consciousness and humanitarian interests are favored. Work those desires!

Tonight, Venus in Capricorn trine Jupiter in Taurus: Appreciation of family, beauty, and fun. Harmonious social interactions and material expansion. Learning about something that interests us is highly favored.

Collective Casting Card of the Week, Jan 28 - Feb 03, 2024: No 27 The Corners of the Mouth. I Ching coin toss: Changing Line, No 1* ( explained below ).

Health and well-being mean more than just freedom from disease; they are a radiant manifestation of balance and body, mind and spirit. When the body mind is balanced, our capacity for spontaneity, joy and peace is increased. We eat food to nourish our bodies, but every level of our being requires nourishment. Which it takes from the sources available to it. Your quality of life reflects how you are nourished, how you nourish others, and the way you function in the world.

We received a barrage of impressions from television, computers, music, movies, books and magazines, and often end up carrying too much "weight" in our heads. Simplify your life by eliminating anything that does not promote wholesomeness. You may be surprised to find that as you clean up your act, you also start feeling better. Gradually eliminating whatever is no longer relevant—stuff, habits, relationships, or points of view—amounts to trimming the fat off your lifestyle. Consider what it would be like to live with the people and things that help you to feel good about yourself. Then consider the extent to which you are willing to go to make that a reality.

If you haven't paid much attention to your health, this is the time to begin. In attending to the body's real needs, it is important to bring some awareness to what, where and how you eat. If you frequently eat in a hurry or graze at an open fridge, then you can be certain that you were also feeding your stress level. Carefully choosing foods that are natural and wholesome, and eating with intention sends a message to your entire being that it's worth nourishing. Maintaining good health also means exercising. Physical exercise vitalizes the heart and circulatory system and enhances our general sense of well-being. It clears cobwebs from an overall mind by rerouting excess energy from the head to the body.

Nourishment of the heart calls for healthy relationships in your life. Relationships require sensitivity to their subtle nuances and should not be taken for granted. Habitual patterns of relating lead to indifference, lack of enthusiasm, or a "can't-be-bothered" attitude that slowly but surely creates heartache. Nourish your relationships carefully so that they may provide you and others with emotional sustenance.

Finally, how do you nourish yourself spiritually? Rest and relaxation put us back in touch with ourselves and nature. Make a conscious choice to tune out external distractions and turn your full attention inward. By sitting silently, relaxed and comfortable, simply observing your breath and your thoughts, you can cleanse your mind of tensions that will deplete well-being. When a thought arises that grips your attention, relax your breath, let the tension go and return to neutrality. This is the simplest form of meditation, and it works. There are many different techniques to facilitate self-awareness, some very energetic, others more passive, and it's wise to experiment to find the way that feels right for you. Practicing A conscious-raising technique with regularity clears the mind, calms the emotions, and will enhance your ability to feel supported by the flow of change that is TAO.

* I Ching Coin toss changing line: No 1 ( very bottom ): From "The Arousing Thunder ( Chen )", provoking movement, shock, impulsive disturbance to "The Receptive ( K'un )", representing yielding support, devotion, and intuition. This change denotes a yielding on our part that includes an increased amount of selfcare as well as an awareness of what's truly important in our lives. We are more open to nurturing ourselves and others as a form of giving.

Every 4.5 years or so, we experience a Pallas return. I will be experiencing mine now! ( 11:58 AM EST this morning ).

Pallas is the goddess of wisdom and self-defense in charge of defending herself and those in her care; thus, she is never the aggressor. Myth says she sprang fully formed and armed from the head of her father, the king of heaven. Her symbol is the wise owl.

She is also known as an artisan connected to weaving due to her love of fabric and skill with a needle and thread. She was known to create and inspire patterns of lasting beauty. This metaphor carries over into our life patterns and linked ideas.

Known as the warrior queen and the philosopher, she most resonates with the sector in our charts that relates to our philosophical take on the world, since we are all philosophers, even if we are not aware of it. Whenever we deduct a theory involving how we desire to live our lives, we are exercising our philosophical nature. This is the influence of Pallas.  

Whenever we stand our ground or strategize politics, or we're challenged by others over our beliefs or lifestyle choices, or for no particular reason (other than they are having a bad day and are lashing out), this is where Pallas appears to offer strategic wisdom that we can respond from rather than a defensive reaction. Responding from a place of knowledge instead of fear lends an air of victory before the battle is over.

A trick many astrologers use is locating a difficult person's natal Pallas ( if possible ). This provides us a better understanding of who and what we are dealing with.

More importantly, however, is knowing where our OWN Pallas is ( sign and house ), to determine how we process wisdom and deal with conflict. The fact that Pallas is not naturally the aggressor or bully means those who are demonstrating those lower-vibrational energies are out of alignment.

Knowing the location of their Pallas provides insight that may be of assistance in guiding them back into alignment. Same for ourselves.

Pallas Return:

A Scorpion Pallas enables us to see deeply below surface level to the root of the issue. We have extreme powers of observation, which can be both a blessing and curse, especially when others seem naive to them.

If your Pallas is in Scorpio, you are alchemical with healing abilities that get right to the source of a challenge rather than treating the symptom of a disease or behavior. We love philosophical thought, healthy debate, and will use psychological modalities as an archaeological shovel.

Scorpio rules the reproductive organs; therefore, they may engage in sex therapy and/or cellular regeneration. We are artistic and particularly drawn to sacred geometrics such as mandalas, double entendre, and tantric practices along with the occult and ancient history.

With the Gods of War and the Underworld as our overlords, we are fearless in the face of danger and ruthless in battle, using considerable skill at strategy. Unsolved mysteries intrigue us, the more obscure the better.

Innate insight can provide the upper hand in any situation, and when relying on Pallas for strategic wisdom and guidance, we'll be able to respond instead of reacting out of fear to any circumstance that may arise.

I'll be focusing on patterns from the last 4.5 years in attempts to break any that no longer serve me. One of my planetary overlords ( Pluto ) is now in the Air sign of Aquarius, and the other ( Mars ) will enter Aquarius mid-February, not to mention an OOB Mercury who will also be in Aquarius, unique strategic business and personal ideas will be falling like shooting stars! I just hope I can catch at least half!

Stay tune! ☄😎

Aspecting the Cosmos, Mon, Jan 29, 2024: We are safe exploring the unknown nudges of our spirit of adventure.

Early morning the Virgo Moon conjunct Juno in the 8th house: Intense emotional energy regarding personal or business relationships and commitments. Avoid being overly critical or expectations of perfectionism.

Midmorning the Moon will sesquiquadrate Jupiter in Taurus: Karmic aspect. Somewhere in our past we played small. Suppressed our voice. Denied our worth. And perhaps somewhere in our past we reacted out of defensiveness. Evaluate our feelings. Stand/speak up for ourselves from a place of love and karma is complete.

Early evening the Moon oppose Neptune in Pisces: Tension between acquisitively stabile emotions and our mystical, soul-searching side. Unification requires a realization that we are safe while exploring the unknown.

Tonight, the Moon square Ceres in Sagittarius sextile Pallas in Scorpio: stumbling block preventing our spirit of adventure. Are we still locked in fear over the unknown?  Strategic wisdom is available to transform the block of our mindset to steps toward our desires.
