Filling the Cup...

The Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, CO ~ Photo by Rose Evans Walker

On Sunday, I asked Rose (photo) if she was in danger of the fires burning in Colorado, as of that date she indicated they were 20 miles south of her home, that the air was acrid with smoke which made breathing outside difficult.  I have not heard from her since and hope her and her two teenage girls are still safe.  Please feel free to send healing energy to those fires and all of the souls who inhabit the area ~

I am taking a break from writing weekly columns but will continue to post bi-weekly or twice per month columns/videos.  Next week on July 2nd, I will write a column for the two week period following.  I will continue to maintain my client session schedule Tuesday through Friday but have felt the need to create a bit more "space" for continuing education and some additional rest.  My progressed Moon is currently conjunct Chiron and the inner urging for increased time dedicated to professional study/development and quiet reflection has been tapping on my shoulder the past few weeks.

I have learned when I don't listen to "spirit" it can manifest in the body so I am endeavoring to walk my talk as a helping professional - this schedule adjustment is ultimately passed on to those around me as well as my clients.  Filling my cup, tending to my internal needs and energy is a process I wish for everyone.  You are the most important person in your world and by engaging in high levels of self-care you energetically raise your own vibration as well as those around you.

No doubt, we are in a time period of great shifts and changes.  This week the Uranus Pluto square became exact, Jupiter is squaring Neptune, Saturn turned direct as will Venus tomorrow (the 27th).  I feel the astrology (energy cycles) are asking us to collectively continue to clear and create more space for authentic internal dialogues to continue to create and manifest "juicy" and personally congruent life changes.  

We've morphed into a world that spends huge amounts of time interacting with the energy "out there" (internet, phone, messaging, FB and email...etc.) while leaving only a small percentage of our time for the internal connections (prayer, meditation, daydreaming, "being" in nature).  When one isn't in contact with what they are experiencing it's hard to listen to the urgings of soul and instinct - the place of inner truth and knowing.  

Wishing you many blessings, peace, courage and well being.  Sessions with Jean can be scheduled here.

Week Beginning Friday, June 15th

ARIES:  Mars, your sign ruler, is moving out of his retrograde shadow on the 19th. See this as a sign to “pass go” in the areas of work, health, pets, and daily routines.  This year has been slow going in these areas, asking you to take your time, engage in due diligence, and rethink your daily structures.  The New Moon, also on the 19th, is in your 3rd house of communications, siblings, teaching, learning, speaking, writing, and travel.  Until mid-July you have the green light to initiate fresh practices and projects in these areas.

TAURUS:  The second New Moon in your 2nd house ensures that your talents, abilities, value system, and earnings will receive fresh sources of stimulation and energy.  You have a 3 week window to make change and implement plans before Mercury's retrograde in mid-July. Mars, the planet ruling drive, ego, initiative, and sex, moves out of its retrograde shadow (from last January), clearing the path for forward movement in dating, relationships, your children, creative endeavors, and all things pleasure oriented.  All year you’ve been asked to review your motivations. Now the manifestation process begins in earnest.

GEMINI:  On the 19th, another New Moon in your sign (in addition to the May New Moon Solar Eclipse) brings more flow to your personal expression, desires, evolving identity, and partnerships.  Your ruler Mercury will turn retrograde in mid-July, so seize opportunities now and over the next three weeks.  Mars moves out of his retrograde shadow on the 19th as well, signaling more momentum in home projects, working from home, moving, tending to issues from the past, and personal security.

CANCER:  Another New Moon in your 12th house sector opens additional flow and awareness in the areas of volunteerism, hospitals, non-profit work, spiritual endeavors, dreams and dreaming, the Law of Attraction, and manifestation – working from the inside out.  Visualization and tending to your dreams are important now. Design your life by focusing your energy and attention.  Mars moves out of his sluggish state on the 19th, encouraging clear communications, writing, teaching, speaking projects, car purchases and maintenance, sibling activity, and community involvement. You can make tangible headway now.

LEO:  The second New Moon in your 5th house of love, children, pleasure, and creativity is providing energy and confidence but it’s up to you to take a chance or two.  Mars’ forward movement out of his retrograde shadow on the 19th is a time to put your energy and willpower where your talents and abilities are.  Since January issues of confidence may have clouded your earning potential, but now your mind clears and your will power engages as you go after jobs and things that you value.  It’s a wonderful time for job-enhancement projects too.

VIRGO:  Your long-term visitor Mars shifts out of his retrograde shadow on the 19th.  Since January, it has been a time for review, revisions, re-thinks, and general slowdowns in the areas of personal desires, goals, and health. These areas are now gaining momentum – it’s time for some definite validation and personal bench marks.  Another New Moon on the 19th occurs in your 10th house of career, public reputation, and status – the time is ripe for advancement and public acclaim.

LIBRA:  Plenty of internal clearing, internal work, and alignment has been your modus operandi this year as Mars has transited your 12th house of spirit, the past, dream work, spirituality, and working in privacy.  He is now passing beyond his retrograde shadow, heralding a time of internal integration and manifestation.  He will ingress into your sign on July 3rd, bringing much of the subconscious work into conscious awareness and initiating a period of fresh personal initiatives, courage, and goal setting.  The second New Moon on the 19th in your 9th house of the higher mind, education, publishing, travel, foreign connections, media and adventure brings yet another energy cycle to bear encouraging fresh initiatives and new starts.

SCORPIO:  Group activities, Internet projects, friendships, personal dreams, and the future are becoming clearer and opening up to tangible advancement as Mars passes beyond his retrograde shadow on the 19th.  Diligence with loans, debts, investments, buying and selling, and bonding are due for fresh energy with the New Moon on the 19th falling in your 8th house of resources.  Until mid-July you have clear energy to make advancements, both psychologically and financially. 

SAGITTARIUS:  The second New Moon on the 19th in your house of partnership is clearing more debris and hesitation surrounding commitments, experts who can “help” you, partnerships, and agreements.  More people are populating your everyday life, opening up your world to fresh associations, views, and possibilities.  Mars moves out of his shadow on the 19th and signals advancement in your career, public reputation, status, and overall life direction. You know where you are going now and are ready to see things through.

CAPRICORN:  The energy clears for activity involving long-distance travel, media, education, foreign interests, and adventures as Mars moves out of his retrograde shadow on the 19th.  The wisdom that has slowed you down in these areas is now releasing and supporting you.  The second New Moon in the house of work, employees, pets, health, daily tasks, and service is clearing more energy and paving the way for new ways of interacting with your everyday world of work and schedules.

AQUARIUS:  The second New Moon in your 5th house on the 19th clears more energy for all things heart-centered and passionate.  You couldn’t ask for a clearer sign than the Universe providing another fresh batch of energy to follow your heart, create your world, take chances, and love what you do.  Mars moves out of his retrograde shadow this week in your 8th house of debt, psychological health, intimacy, sex, and trust.  All of the “re-thinks” since January are now resulting in the long-lasting change you’ve been seeking.

PISCES:  Mars moves out of his retrograde shadow this week in the area of partnership and alliances.  All of the slow downs, internal work, and interactions with the others in your world are freeing up for fresh levels of engagement and exchange.  The second New Moon of the year in your 4th house of home, family, the past, security, and parents clears yet more energy, allowing new starts and rules of engagement in your personal world.

Week Beginning Friday, June 8th

Potala Palace, Tibet ~ Follow Scott Anna HERE

ARIES:  Communications are active this week. Mercury in your 4th house of soul, self, and security engages with the area of transformation and change on Monday, squaring Uranus in your 1st house of self-expression and opposing Pluto in the areas of career and life direction.  This is called a T-square and denotes some tension and the need for decisions and mental clarity.  The changes and shifts of the past few years bring additional awareness to the areas of your life that represent ongoing adjustments.  Jupiter joins in Mercury's cause as the energy of expansion and learning moves into Mercury's sign of Gemini in your 3rd house on the 11th. Jupiter is intent upon honing your talents and abilities and strengthening your self-esteem.

TAURUS:  Jupiter's exit from your 1st house into the 2nd house signals the beginning of implementing, polishing, and honing all that you have discovered and built upon during the past 12 months.  It's time to put your education, awareness, and opportunities to work for you in the realm of your talents, which in turn builds and strengthens your self-esteem.  You have an opportunity over the next year to expand your resources—both financially and emotionally.  Mercury's movement this week ups the ante in the "ways and means" in the areas of writing, communication, educational projects, travel, big-picture activities, and foreign contacts.  Chiron shifts into retrograde on the 9th in your 11th house, asking you go deeper in aligning with your heartfelt goals and desires.

GEMINI:  Your ponderings, awakening, and time spent in solitude is now seeking outward expression through personal desires, learning, and pursuing areas of opportunity that feel good to you.  Jupiter's ingress into your sign on the 11th supports these areas of expansion and curiosity.  I'll assert that the best teachers are the most ardent students—an apt phrase for you over the next year.  Mercury is bringing you a more conscious awareness of these dreams you hold dear and providing information in the areas of change surrounding your financial and emotional resources.  Chiron moves into retrograde motion until November, supporting a time of deeper understanding, processing, and awareness in life choices, goals, career, and parents.

CANCER:  Mercury's ingress into your sign signals a time of increased communications with others, and the conscious processing of your intuitions and senses.  Some exchanges and mental connections may feel jolting as Mercury squares Uranus and opposes Pluto on the 11th. This time encourages decisions and discussion on the long-term cycle of change occurring in your outer life and your patterns of relating. Also on the 11th, Jupiter moves into the behind-the-scenes 12th house for a 12-month stay.  This is a time to go inward in order to improve psychological and physical health, the mind/body connection, and to tend to the spiritual.  Chiron moves into retrograde on the 12th, deepening your understanding, compassion, and spiritual and philosophical development.

LEO:  Jupiter is moving into a social position on the 11th, opening up your vistas, dreams, good will from compadres, and team participation over the next year.  People are more willing to help you out, support your goals. and broaden your view of possibilities.  Mercury is busy gathering information for this new cycle from the depths of your emotional and spiritual core.  He bumps up against both Uranus and Pluto on the 11th, awakening the areas of mind, adventure, education, work, health, services, and health.  Intuition grows about what needs to change in order to transform your daily schedule and step more fully into your core need for expansion and creativity.

VIRGO:  Your ruling planet is busy this week gathering information and presenting challenges for your ultimate growth and healing.  As Mercury transits your 11th house of goals, dreams, and being who you are, he brings awareness surrounding your evolving need for creative self-expression, psychological habits, and some long overdue emotional endings.  Jupiter's ingress into fellow Mercurial Gemini heralds a year of growth, opportunity, education, and expansion in your life direction, career, and parental situations. Healing and validation is on the way.  Chiron's retrograde movement on the 12th imparts messages and promises of compassionate understanding and awareness in your primary relationships and with clients and consultants who can help you on your journey.

LIBRA:  Saturn's transit of your sign for the past 2+ years has required restraint and plenty of responsibility, growth, practicality, and, as Saturn always demands, maturation.  Jupiter's ingress into your 9th house of adventure, media, publishing, enlarging your reach/audience, and education promises a year of lightening up, travel, pleasure through inventive curiosity, and the love of knowledge.  As Chiron moves into retrograde through November you have the opportunity to go deeper in the development and extension of your services, physical health, and teaching.  The Sun in your 9th house trines Saturn in your sign on the 13th, validating your thoughts, beliefs, and plans for future projects.

SCORPIO:  Jupiter's ingress into the most private and psychologically sensitive area of your chart promises a time for healing, deepening trust, financial protection, and going deeper within partnership. Extend a welcome to Jupiter shifting into your sign ruler’s 8th house.  Mercury's transit through your 9th house of "mind expansion" makes contact with revolutionary Uranus in your 6th house of work and health and Pluto in your 3rd house of mind and communications.  More awareness flows in regarding the changing landscape in your mind and in your health, work, and services.  Mercury's trine to Chiron on the 12th highlights developments with children, creativity, and teaching.  Chiron retrogrades that day until November, deepening the need for healing of the precious child within.

SAGITTARIUS:  Ta-da moments can be expected just prior to Jupiter's move into your 7th house of partnership.  Work projects and health are positioned nicely through the 10th.  It’s time to finish up and gather loose ends in preparation for the expansion Jupiter will bring to your working partnerships and personal relationships. If you need to cut bait from current alliances, Jupiter will bring the goodwill and the path to do so. If you are single and looking, possibilities will abound after August. And if you are currently in a healthy partnership, plan on it expanding and growing in pleasant and benevolent ways as commitment deepens.  The wounded healer, maverick, and compassionate teacher moves into retrograde on the 12th in the area of home, security, and healing.  Deepening levels of understanding are brought to bear through November—heal thyself.

CAPRICORN:  Chiron moves into retrograde on the 12th until November.  The wounded healer has been transiting the area of the mind, education, teaching, and communications.  You are encouraged to align more deeply over the coming months with all that is innovative, compassionate, and knowledge driven.  Stimulation, awareness, and challenges arrive from others in your world. This opens the field of possibilities within your own mind of what needs to change and how to create that change.  Jupiter's ingress into your 6th house for a 12-month stay brings support, expansion, and possible healing in health, work, and the services you have to offer the world.

AQUARIUS:  As the communicator Mercury (now transiting your 6th house of work, health, and service) touches off the Uranus Pluto square, you experience a developing sense of what conditions require your attention in order to step into more fully your inventive genius - this has everything to do with your mind and internal dialogues.  As imprints from the past generations are under renovation it frees you up more and more to engage with your creative mind in the here and now.  Jupiter's shift into your 5th house of creativity will bring expansion in self-expression and creative labor's of love.  Falling in love may be part of this equation.  The fall time frame will start yielding tangible results.

PISCES:  Chiron joins Neptune as he moves into retrograde in your sign until November.  You are marking a new chapter in life that requires healing in order to free up the space for your evolving participation on this planet.  Participation that invokes the creative and innovative that has been percolating for years will gain access to continuing outward expression and new structures in your life.  Jupiter's ingress into your 4th house is aiding and abetting the effort infusing expansion and healing energy to the most personal part of self and shoring up your emotional foundations in order to create a sustainable sense of safety and well being while living on this planet.

Week Beginning Friday, June 1st

ARIES:  The intrinsic desire for change can arrive in many forms, often in unanticipated ways – be open to this.  The Venus Sun occultation is opening up energetic passages in your daily patterning and mental habits. This state may feel unfamiliar – especially if the feelings and thoughts that emerge are oriented in beauty, love, and conceptual balance.  Your ego, will, and the usual ways you approach work and duties may be challenged, but trust this is an opening intended to liberate you as you work through life direction and vocational transformations.  The Full Moon on the 4th brings a culmination in travel, education, media, public relations, and the big picture.

TAURUS:  Health and work areas have been the recipient of a very stabilizing force from Venus trine Saturn. Insights and developments unfold as the Venus Sun transit merges, creating a sense of new possibilities for your skills and talents.  Whatever has felt like a non-possibility is ripe for viability and opportunity.  For those of you in the working world, the energy this week is intent upon broadening your scope and, hence, your wallet.  It’s time to get real and embrace what juices and motivates you. This may initially create tension within your creative sense of structure and will.  But the energetic cycle intent upon transforming your belief systems begins with you and then radiates to external people and situations.  The Full Moon highlights your psychology, needed endings, and the energy shared with others. 

GEMINI:  You have been engaged in an energetic trend intent upon strengthening and defining your relationships as the North Node has transited your 7th house.  This week the Venus Sun occultation is further fueling this evolution, encouraging another level of development that has everything to do with healing the feminine within.  By that I mean believing that you are worthy, valuable, and deserving of all things loving and abundant.  This process is highlighted over the next few years, but another stage of awareness is upon you now, seeking to dissolve psychological patterns of the past (anything that feels harsh or limiting are the areas for release).  This consciousness may bump up against the struggle and anger of the past – let this surface, knowing that this is a clearing out rather than a statement that this is your “lot in life,” - not true, not true.

CANCER:  Your sign is known as the “nurturer” and the path for the Cancerian is learning to mother self, first and foremost.  Feeding your needs and clearing emotional static can be challenging but oh so affirming.  As the Venus Sun occultation occurs in the area of the past, subconscious, and generational family, you are in a prime time to lovingly and gently clear out the closets of limitations, family imprints, and subconscious belief patterns.  This process feeds the long-term cycle of transforming your relationships and relating patterns while liberating your career goals and interactions with authority and parents.  Any orientations that feel harsh or limiting are the areas for ultimate dissolving.  The Full Moon highlights the axis of mind/body connections – what you think is in direct correlation to how you feel. 

LEO:  You have been energetically encouraged to step into your authentic feelings, expression, and creative life over the past year or so.  Going with the crowd is not the path to growth or setting long-term goals.  But this is beginning to shift with the Venus Sun occultation.  Getting real about what is important to you based on your desires is unfolding at a rapid pace.  Jupiter enters your 11th house this month (and especially after August) and sets up a year to align your creative urgings with your long-term plans.  Friends, networks, and acquaintances will become part of the process, as others want to see you do well and self-actualize.  As this week unfolds, pay attention to self-esteem issues. You have the support and power to change them.

VIRGO:  The Venus Sun occultation occurs in the area of your public self – life direction, career, and reputation.  You have something special to offer to the world Virgo – trust that.  Your energy and will are working through to your future and will expand as Jupiter enters your 10th house this month and the South Node leaves at the end of August.  Since last fall, the Mars transit of your sign has been urging a review regarding why you want what you want.  The Full Moon on the 4th highlights the axis of foundations (home, family, security) and your public life (career, influence, and external activity), revving your personal goals as you seek to integrate your desires with the greater good. This affords you more psychological freedom and the ability to create deep and lasting change.

LIBRA:  The bigger world is calling in the areas of your higher mind, education, travel, big picture, media, and public relations.  The Mars transit has been working on the past and the areas that have tripped you up in your psychology and past imprints.  The Venus Sun occultation is flowing in to help incorporate all that you have worked through over the past months.  Seeds of desires and yearnings are taking hold now and will be fully born while Jupiter moves into your 9th house and the S. Node moves on at the end of August.  The Full Moon highlights your communication axis, validating and highlighting your communication skills.  Allow any frustrations or limiting fears to rise to surface for integration.

SCORPIO:  The Venus Sun occultation is priming the pump and revealing the deep changes to come when Jupiter ingresses into your 8th house of psychology, trust, intimacy, and finances.  Jupiter will visit this area for a year, helping to heal issues of trust and abundance.  The S. Node of the past will exit your 8th house at the end of August, freeing up energy for growth and healing in your relationships with others and in your relationship to money.  This in turn feeds the revolutionary needs of Uranus transiting your 6th house of work and health where revolution in your own world is about more freedom in your daily life and the services that you offer.  The Full Moon on the 4th highlights your income, talents, and the resources others share with you – mentally, sexually, financially, and psychologically.

SAGITTARIUS:  The Full Moon falls in your sign on the 4th highlighting your personal needs within partnerships.  The Venus Sun occultation is pouring energy into all of your important relationships.  This is the time to show clarity and compassion and to incorporate your goals and plans into your daily life and work.  This area will continue to be the focus of growth as Jupiter moves into the 7th house this month and the S. Node exits at the end of August.  Incremental development with others is highlighted in a very positive way over the next year. 

CAPRICORN:  As Neptune (the planet of Universal Love) turns retrograde in your house of the mind, Venus (the planet representing interpersonal love and values) is illuminated by the Sun in the areas of work, health, and the services you share with others on this planet.  Important ideas are now converting into important developments in your health and work sectors.  More will come as Jupiter ingresses into this area for a year and as the South Node departs in August, freeing up forward movement and the actualization of your plans.  Your mandate is to further integrate the mind/body connection in order to utilize all that you’ve got in your service to others.  The Full Moon highlights your subconscious motivations, dreams, meditation, and the areas of habits, health, and service to others.

AQUARIUS:  More beauty is coming in whatever form that resonates for you.  Creativity, art, music, and love are deep seated and represent your personal soul urgings.  The Venus Sun occultation occurring in your 5th house of self is opening up heart-felt longings and desires.  Jupiter’s imminent move into your 5th house will be a catalyst, creating palpable avenues for self-expression over the next year.  Trust the softer inner energy that is all about being available to receive, attract, and nurture that which you love and which feeds you.  The Full Moon on the 4th highlights the axis of friends, love, long-term planning, and personal goals. 

PISCES:  Neptune turns retrograde in your sign at the Full Moon on the 4th.  Any fogginess or confusion abates over the next few months, allowing for time to ponder and integrate the urgings and discontent you’ve been feeling since February.  The Venus Sun occultation brings further comfort and awareness in your personal life, signaling a time of healing and abundance.  Jupiter will move into this very area (the 4th house) later this month, seeking to broaden your scope in your personal life and in your home life over the next year.  The Full Moon brings a culmination in the areas of career, public life, authority figures, and reputation.
