Numerology/Astrology for 5/27/19
5/27/19 is the number 8. This number is about grief, loss, and sadness. That dense emotional expression can be released by bringing yourself to full presence. It is the past that haunts and hunts our inner peace. It is our inability to bring our full self into this moment (because of past trauma), that is the cause of so much suffering in this world. The past shapes us and defines our values. But it is not the end to the development of who we are to become. If your past blocks your forward progression towards evolution into the highest reflection of who you are, then you have failed the test of this life and this world. Everyone will get hurt and wounded. Everyone will have to learn how to move past the events that shape us into a being of compassion and conscience. But we are always more than we can presently see or express. This journey of evolution and development has lasted for millennia and will continue to develop at the pace that you are willing to allow. Decide to explore, discover, and develop into your highest and best self. Acknowledge the past but do not ever allow it to define you completely. The past is the method by which the universe teaches responsibility and awareness.
The Moon continues in sensitive Pisces. Always a good thing to practice the core values of Pisces which is compassion and connection with others. Stay present with others and be your best self. Notice those who refuse to commit to a plan or action. Notice those without courage and practice avoidance. And allow them to be where they are.
There is an alignment with Neptune and Venus is in harmony with both. There is a spiritual depth arising in your relationships and you tend to approach others with more compassion than previously. This world needs all the compassion it can muster right now. Be a part of that new and growing trajectory.
Today is a day to forgive and release things from the past that no longer serve. With this creative influence between Venus and Jupiter, it is a good day to put your faith in someone else. It is time to look honestly at others and see into the very soul essence of who they are. Once you see that, trust that, and know that someone’s ego is not running the show, there is a doorway to a higher level of trust and awareness.
You can’t depend
on your eyes when
your imagination is
out of focus.
Teachers are here to ignite those still asleep to the wonder and magic that is possible in life. They are here to open doors that have been shut in your awareness. That is what makes them seem so wise and inspirational. They know a doorway to a secret place of soul development. And that makes you want to follow them. The problem is … that they know certain doorways that they have walked through but not necessarily all the doorways necessary to support your soul to expand in all the areas you need to become your magnificence. Always takes the doorways offered. Some will make sense and align with your energy field and some may make sense at a later date as you continue to evolve. But know that this life is more like a personal treasure quest rather than a linear straight line of spiritual progression and evolution. One path is insufficient to allow you to become all that you can be. Certain paths are the spiritual progressive steps to teach values and what is important to learn here is this dimension. Others are to open places in your consciousness that need to be expanded. But the final result is that you will discover that you will become your best teacher. And some of the most essential lessons come from you rather than the experiences of others. The most stunning moment is when you recognize that all the lessons you need, present in your life naturally, if you are awake and aware enough to appreciate them. The greatest transition is when you fully let life teach you all that it has to offer. That is because then you are not striving to be like someone else but you know that you are complete right now and that you have always been whole. There is no need to compare yourself to others because you see the uniqueness in everyone and everything around you.
ASTROLOGY FOR JUNE 2019
Preparing for the Storm
of the Eclipses in July
This is the last New Moon before we head into the July’s Eclipse Season and the next Mercury retrograde, making the beginning of June a good time to get ahead on what we can, while we can. Because the waves are going to continue to increase as the month progresses.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius occurs on June 17 at 1:31 AM PT and is the turning point. Jupiter is in Sagittarius and so not the sun and moon are both intensifying the storm. Jupiter rules tempests. I like to think of this combination as testing and brining out my own tempestuousness and testiness. While this Full Moon to some may feel like a moment of calm inside an astrological storm, don’t believe it for a second. Stay on guard and know that the storm is right in front of you. Stay focused and know that you cannot drop your guard.
This Full Moon is sandwiched in between days of difficult astrology. I want you to appreciate the many advancements that you’ve made while Jupiter has been in Sagittarius. Reflect and appreciate your choices and actions up to this point. Believe in yourself. Remember to check in with your heart. Always be kind and step away from what is not working. You have no time to waste on thins that will not matter. Let others find their way. You cannot protect them from the karmic lessons they are headed towards.
This month is all about navigating the contradictions.
Mars is in nurturing Cancer all month.
Mental Mercury moves through emotional Cancer June 4-26.
Mars and Mercury are not overly comfortable in such emotional signs, so find a way to deal with the overwhelm of emotions this month.
The relationship planet, Venus, moves through an overly mental sign of Gemini from June 4 to July 3. The test is to get your head and heart working in a unified way. While your emotions want an easy month, your intellect has way too much going on to slow down. You will feel pulled in two directions.
Venus in Gemini, brings the esoteric into heightened focus and is all about healing and bringing greater beauty into the world.
The month of June we are in the 6-week period before the eclipses in July so you will begin to feel them the entire month of June.
There are two eclipses in July. A solar eclipse on July 2 in Cancer has you looking at home and family needs and issues. The lunar eclipse in Capricorn and Cancer on July 16 has you looking at responsibilities in your life and where you get to get serious and focused.
Numerology/Astrology for 5/26/19
5/26/19 is the number 7. This is a great day to being to formulate a plan. Not to do the plan but to really look at what something might take to accomplish that goal of yours. Plans are a great idea. It lets you begin to see the steps necessary and evaluate what it will really take to make ideas into actuality. Life always has a plan and if you do not put in your requests to the universe you will unconsciously be at the whim of your karmic contracts. Intellect and experience give you an advantage to mold and shape those karmic agreements into the best-case scenario. Something that I always prefer to do. Awareness is always the key. When you can see what lies ahead and can anticipate the challenges, then you are not surprised or upset with the universe. You are prepared and do not take small upsets that present personally.
The Moon is in gentle Pisces today and into the USA Memorial Day holiday on Monday. It is a great time to be by a watery place to meditate and watch a good movie. Just let the days drift in a daydream.
In the morning the Sun and Saturn for a sesquiquadrate and you may feel blocked, exhausted or restricted. Sometimes it is just best to not fight it but allow it. Learning to take some time and just rest is what the universe has in mind. It might be good to listen.
The Sun is sextile to Chiron around midday. Re-evaluate your purpose in this life. Find where you feel confident and express that through your family and projects. Growth is what is being asked of you. There is great joy in problem-solving. You feel stronger and more empowered.
We are in the Last Quarter Moon. The Sun is in the duality mindset of Gemini and forms a square to the Moon in sensitive Pisces. You are looking and re-evaluating many things. You are looking to see what really works for you. You are being prepared to make some more changes.
Don’t start something right here. It is not the best time. But it is great to finish those projects already in motion.
Anytime you stay too long,
it is like when you stay
out in the sun longer
than you are prepared for.
It is not the sun’s fault.
Nor is it another’s fault.
The sun is just shining.
But when you know yourself,
you also know your
limits and capabilities.
When you stay aware, you
know the moment when it
is time to make a change.
It is a beautiful day in northern California. We have been gifted with more rain and it has kept the temperatures down to my favorite coolness. At this time in my life I don’t do well in heat. So I have loved this particular time because it is as if spring has extended and lasted longer. It has given me the chance to work on my garden in comfort. I have finally had the chance to do some things I have wanted to do for a long time. Such as put netting over my vegetables so the chipmunks don’t eat my blossoms that are supposed to turn into lovely vegetables. I redid all my drip lines and hopefully that will get me a better balance for the plants. Because I travel often, this is always the tricky part of a vegetable garden. They often need some TLC and I may not be here to notice what they need. It has been an ongoing experiment. And I am getting smarter and wiser as I learn. But this spring has been perfect to take the time to do some fine tuning. My hummingbirds swarmed in all at once yesterday. They are a bit late. But I am sure this cool weather and rain gave them many options because of the beautiful flowers blooming all the way up from Mexico.
I have a few that are always here. They stay year-round. Sometimes they leave for a week or two. I joke and say that they go to Marin and have a short vacation. But then happily return.
My Banded Pigeons are back. They come every year and the eat a ton. But I feed them because they are struggling as a species. They do not know why but they know that they only have one offspring a year and so they reproduce more slowly. They are sensitive to certain diseases and need open water that is flowing. That is why they are here because I have a year-round spring and there is a pond on the property just below us. I am happy to help my group of banded pigeons. All species are struggling at this time and I find that if everyone put out some effort to what is right in their area then we (as humans) could make a big difference.
Numerology/Astrology for 5/25/19
5/25/19 is the number 6. The number 6 is a spiritual seeking number. It is what is good in all of us….our conscience. It is our empathy, grace, ability to compromise, and the teacher inside of us that wants to protect and heal others. It is the number that connect us through intellectual discrimination and the part that knows that spiritual freedom comes from taking responsibility for our choices. This number is all about knowing that a perfected sense of balance is only achieved through inner clarity not through external circumstances. No other person or situation can make you feel safe. When you are insecure within, then nothing anyone ever will do will be enough. It is unfair to put that kind of pressure on others. That insecurity can only see from what it needs and what it wants. From observing the world that way, often the person forgets to say, “Thank you!” to others and appreciate the efforts that they put in on your behalf. Selfishness comes from not being able to see past your own wants and needs. The higher motivations of “Right” and “Wrong” are what the number 6 is about. When you have a place inside for principles then the intuitive side of the number 6 emerges and you know who and when to give your time and energy too. This number shows that stability comes from being able to be comfortable in your own skin regardless of what external situations are happening in your life.
It is another inventive day with the Moon in Aquarius. Discover something new and different.
The Moon is sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius. It brings an increase in enthusiasm and idealism. Being happy becomes a priority and connecting to friends, family, and community essential. The added connections support focus and clarity. You want to be your best self.
Pluto and Ceres semi-square and that can strain the system and bring aggravation. For some the possessive side of their nature might emerge. Attachment to old patterns that are incomplete become more obvious today. Know that continuing this type of behavior will push others away from you. If that is what you want and intend then keep doing what you are doing. But some things from the past make you realize the level of rejection or betrayal you are feeling.
A Mercury-Pallas trine will help make sense of it all. Express yourself clearly with others. Organize your thoughts and ideas into patterns that are sustainable. You can enjoy making those plans for your future.
“Finding joy is probably tantamount
to finding yourself and being
comfortable in your own skin.”
In psychology, they say we all have 3 wounds, shame, abandonment, and betrayal. We identify with one of those more than another but we all have all three. These are like chips that we carry on our shoulders that others can sometimes see and often feel. When we are unaware of these triggers, we walk around in this life expecting to have those energy continue to attack us at various times. It creates a type of defensive posture that we live with on a daily basis and spend energy reinforcing. Avoidance of pain just creates more suffering. I personally prefer, Pema Chodrun’s method of sitting in the “Shempa”, which means sitting in the truth of the misery. Being with it. Feeling it all the way through. Until you discover what lies underneath it. Often feelings will not reveal their hidden wisdom until you sit with them long enough. Many, many years ago, I was in a place of sitting with betrayal. It was a long, hard journey to sit with such a heated and uncomfortable energy. What I discovered for myself was that underneath the betrayal was resentment. Buckets of it. I was shocked because I had done so much work with anger. But I discovered that anger and resentment are very different. It was a tremendous revelation. So then I had to sit with the resentment and feel all the way through that. And there was so much old, old stuff. Stuff from my childhood, family, situations with ballet, etc. The list went on and on. I share this because if I have buckets full of unresolved emotions, I know that all of us do, in various forms and types. I believe that is why accidents, situations, and circumstances appear in our life to trigger us to feel things that we have been avoiding. It is a good thing ultimately. When you learn to embrace what is true without covering it over with a story, you will become much more comfortable in your own skin.
Numerology/Astrology for 5/24/19
5/24/19 is the number 5. Are you paying attention to your health? Do you listen to what your body is trying to tell you? Today is a day to potentially shift out of some of your less than healthy behaviors and into a more balanced way for your body. Why not try to do a cleanse today? Or even fast, just for the day. I find that our poor bodies hold so much stress and strain and they do so much for us but often we do not give them the simple things that will help them work at the best. And then we wonder why we are tired and not feeling well. Throughout our life there are major shifts in what our body needs. When we were younger and we had all that growing of bones and muscles going on, we could eat like a horse and stay rail thin. Then we stopped physically growing. And suddenly our bodies needed something else. Then we age and our bodies need completely different things. Our diet radically changes and the things that we could get away with when we are younger, catch up to us. Life is the number 5 and life is always about change and adapting to the constantly new requirements of our bodies so they can help us cope and keep going. Honor your body, respect and listen to its needs.
The Moon spends the day in Aquarius. You continue to want to do the unusual and attract in things are different. It feels like a time to approach your life from a new way.
Mercury forms a sesquiquadrate to Pluto later in the day. It can make you look at things in a more suspicious way at how things are either working or not working in your life. If others do not want to do things your way you may feel personally attacked.
You probably cannot get to where you want by going directly there. Therefore a more round about direction may be in order. Be careful because you might be tempted to manipulate others in order to get what you want.
This is a day that can lead to intense creative thinking but impatience follows you around. You may feel as if your brain is not quite operating on all cylinders. Thinking can feel intense and there is tension and pressure causing irritability and stress.
The universe responds well
when you are certain about
what you exactly want.
I find that there are many people who are not really clear about what they want in life. At first, they identify something from television or the movies that seems “cool” or aligns with a part of their ego. But that is never really what aligns with their soul. It is just the mind playing games to feel important and to gain confidence and self-acceptance. It is a natural step to self-discovery. But it can take you off track of who you really are. Trying to be someone else or something that you are not is a waste of precious time and energy. While it feels good for a moment, you can distract yourself by a fantasy that uses up a lot of energy to maintain because it is not really who you are. On one level it is the easiest thing in the world to be yourself because it feels organic and effortless. But then the mind wants to jump in and make you have to struggle and strive for something and to make yourself great. What you fail to see in that moment is that you are already a miracle and there is something very unique and wonderful about just who you are. When you are not trying to impress others, you have more compassion. When you are not trying to “keep up with the Jones” you do not have to waste energy maintaining a false self. Take the time to really get to know who you are. That is what is really worth your time and energy.
Numerology/Astrology for 5/23/19
5/23/19 is the number 4. A work/life balance is what we all want. American’s tend to spend more time at work than in other countries. I loved living in Germany where you got 6 weeks paid vacation each year and you got paid for 13 months of the year instead of 12. That extra salary, half you got at the holiday of Christmas and half you got at your vacation time. Boy, did that make a huge difference. I would love to see each of us begin to walk towards finding that better balance for ourselves. Life can whiz past much too quickly. Learning to take breaks and to have fun is actually very important. A balanced life is going to help you live longer and be happier.
The Moon moves from Capricorn into the friendly skies of Aquarius around 2 pm.
Mercury forms a sextile to Chiron, giving you an opportunity to start having more healthy dialogues. Approaching problems from a more holistic viewpoint will help you solve current challenges in new ways. This pattern enhanced communication in a more subtle way.
You may notice that you hit a few blocks and old insecurities. Motivation might be a problem because past resentments and anger might surface. Know that misunderstandings are highly likely and keep your expectations of others low at the moment.
Mercury is minor in a challenge to Saturn suggesting some defensive attitudes will abound. There is a square between Mars and Chiron which also stimulates a touchy quality in some. You may feel too vulnerable at this time.
do a good
if your job
is all you
Life is about learning how to connect
as fully as possible with the many variations
that are available to us.
It is about how much life
and love we will allow into our life.
While life is also about giving our gifts.
Sometimes we mistakenly believe that
our value is only what we have to
give to others, rather than just allowing
ourself to be who we are and know that
being our authentic self is enough.
Numerology/Astrology for 5/22/19
5/22/19 is the number 3. There is a moment when you have to enjoy the ride regardless of what kind of ride it is. Learning to appreciate moments, even when they are different than you imagined is something that takes practice. That is because they happen for a reason and almost always that reason is for your growth or the growth of others. After all, you do not always get what you want. And not because you did something bad but because everything in life revolves around a greater circle of life not just your own small reality. There is always something happening outside your sphere of the reality. We each live in a bubble of our own beliefs and perceptions. And to us that bubble is very real. How we relate to others is where those bubbles overlap. With some people that bubble overlaps quite a bit. And in those relationships, there is a strong sense of feeling safe and heard because of that familiar connection within the sphere of that shared reality. But with others it is less there because less of that bubble is shared. And when someone’s bubble is in a reality that (to us) is a non-reality, the connection is less strong. You can even like that person a lot but it may feel as if they are speaking a foreign language and you just cannot quite relate. Sometimes you can try and try but it still somehow falls short. Because within those bubbles are lessons and experiences that are unique to each person’s journey. And that is how is should be. That is why you attempt to connect through reaching beyond the physical form and genetic inheritance of a person and bypass the complex layers of emotional protection that everyone has and connect instead to the soul. Because the soul essence you can always recognize and connect to. But sometimes the human choices, emotional dysfunction, and their personal dystopia is not something that is easy to be around.
If you can step out of your routine on Wednesday morning, you will make eccentric Uranus very happy. This is the day that you may feel like you definitely do not want to go into some humdrum job.
But then the reality of the conservative Capricorn Moon hits you over the head and tells you to get going, get grounded, and deal with what is on your plate. It does help to enhance your intuitive side
Yet, you can’t help but feel that you need to branch out and entertain the new and progressive ideas that are floating around in that head because of the Mars-Uranus sextile. You want to experiment and make things happen. It could really bring out that creativity. Sometimes risk is a necessary change.
Actions that are independent will break through the block and obstacles that present. It is your turn to take the lead. The more confidence you find within translates out to more courage and energy externally.
I look at lies and always see hate.
I look at denial and I always see fear.
