JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “New Moon 26 April 2017 — The Dark Side”

cancer-zodiac-sign-dorina-costras

The New Moon on Wednesday April 26, 2017 is at 6° Taurus. The New Moon April 2017 astrology exposes some dark and sinister energies that are often associated with strong leaders and dictators. The new moon fixed stars and planetary alignments make it easy to identify and understand your inner dark side.

The April 2017 new noon allows you to make sense of the strange invisible energies working away inside you. Shining a light on your dark side can lead to a positive transformation and liberation from guilt, fear and shame.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon marks the beginning and end of the 28 day lunar cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or starting any new project.

All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The influence of the April 26 new moon lasts for four weeks up to the May 25 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from April 26 to the May 10 full moon.

New Moon April 2017 Astrology

The April 26 new moon at 6°27′ Taurus makes no planetary aspect at all. There are two fixed stars just ahead of the new moon that have a sinister reputation. There is also a very strong planetary alignment at the time of the new moon which can transform demons into angels.

Fixed star Hamal at 7°53′ and fixed star Schedir at 8°00′ Taurus are both associated with strong, protective leaders. A lust for power can make them cruel and violent dictators. Although headstrong and aggressive, they slowly work their way to the top using cunning and patience. Inside a generous and loving family man can lie a killer instinct and demonic powers. Evil associates, egomania, overindulgence and love affairs can lead to trouble, loss and disgrace.

New Moon April 2017 Astrology

New Moon April 2017 Aspects

The influence of the fixed stars is amplified by the new moon and felt by everyone. Even if these stars are not active in your birth chart, everyone has their inner demons or little dictator to contend with. In a similar manner, it does not matter that the following aspects do not link directly to the new moon. We all feel them to some degree just as we all feel the new moon to some degree.

Mercury conjunct Uranus gives flashes of insight and higher awareness of your inner demons. This electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Increased open-mindedness and intuition make it easier to grasp concepts and abstract ideas. The things you discover will surprise you and unexpected news may come your way.

Mercury trine Saturn gives disciplined thinking, good concentration and attention to detail. It makes the abstract concepts from Uranus more tangible and easy to apply in real life. Saturn will also tone down the shocking nature of some Uranus insights. This is a good new moon for making important decisions and for serious discussions, negotiations and business dealings.

Saturn trine Uranus represents a transition phase in life. This is the ideal time to make positive changes in your life because they should run smoothly. Change will not be upsetting or erratic as it sometimes can. You will remain calm and patient, planning every step methodically. This is also a good time for experimentation and creative self-expression.

New Moon April 2017 Summary

The April 26 new moon aligns with two nasty fixed stars that are associated with dictators and the dark side. The major planetary configuration this year, Saturn trine Uranus, is activated by the messenger Mercury. This brings stunning insights and understanding which will lead to a positive transformation.

Revealing your inner demons will be very liberating. Shining light on such dark and sinister energies makes them weaker. Discovering and accepting your dark side can lead to a rapid and positive transformation. This reduction in negative karma will relieve you of guilt, shame, self loathing and fear.

ZOE DAVENPORT: “Full Moon Energies — Expand Into More”

FullPinkMoon2.jpg

This is a time to FEEL full — full of love, joy, vitality, connection, abundance, peace, serenity. Full, full of unlimited divine opportunities as we allow the full moon to support and assist us to expand into more.

Expand, expand, expand, expand, expand, expand, expand, expand!!

More — expand into more of who we are, expand more into the vibration of our multi-dimensional beings, expand into more love, more joy, more compassion for where we are in ascension.

Expand into all we have been holding back from — this really is the time to feel the fullness of our hearts, our beautiful lights. Feel the fullness of our being when we are expanding into what is, we let go of what isn’t — the stories, the victim, the drama, the shame, the envy, the guilt, the fear.

The full moon energies allows and supports this to expand into truth — which is light, which is love.

EXPAND INTO LOVE — WE ARE LOVE !!

We need to allow ourselves to expand in energy so freely that our cups are overflowed with what we need to co-create the new Earth — Expansion opens us back up to the unlimited potential of divine creation.

When we are expanding out — we no longer constrict ourselves from staying in the small I AM. We no longer hold back from our divine birthrights of manifestation from zero point — free from limitations and fear. For what was is no longer, what was is no longer in alignment for what is — which is who we are — expanded multi-dimensional beings.

Expansion of our truths, sovereignty, expansion of space free to create as we allow our connection of the divine feminine to FEEL into what it is we truly desire and open up to receive as we honor the divine masculine within to create divine thought — free thought expanding in energy to create form — the physical manifestations, the physical reality of expansion for us to experience this world — co-created from a place of expanded divine LOVE.

The more we share our hearts we empower self in authenticity.

Authenticity is about trusting we are enough.

We ALL have the ability to expand our authenticity when we let go of restricted energy — stagnated energy caught up in emotional attachments to to the stories of judgment.

NOW is the time we are called to stay expanded in our truths — allow the emotion of expanded creation to flow freely from our expanded and open hearts. Then we begin from the place of purity — the inner child is honored- the divine balance with the masculine and feminine starts to restore and work in alignment.

Use the full moon energies to expand into more of what we need — self-care is not optional if we want to expand through 3D and feel alignment with 5D and above.

Let go of the need to fight — to force — to stay stuck — to stay small — to stay hidden.

EXPAND OUT — allow FEEL the energy of who we truly are.

What areas of our lives are we not FEELING expanded or supporting self right now?

What areas of our lives do we FEEL restricted and energetically bound up?

What areas of our lives are we wanting to see remarkable improvements — through manifesting?

The expansion of our beings— the expansion of our truths, the expansion of our hearts will move through the “blocks” with ease as we expand bigger than the fear that was holding us back.

We are here to evolve — we are here to co-create from the zero point of expansion — of unlimited divine manifesting — that is alignment for all.

Use the full moon to expand our hearts, our ability to love, our ability to heal, our ability to forgive, our ability to surrender, our ability to let go, our ability to be in total multi-dimensional expansion.

Expand into JOY

Expand into LOVE

Expand into YOU

Breathe in and allow the heart to expand, breathe out resistance, breathe in light for the heart to open and expand, breathe out limitations through thoughts, breathe in energy to connect, breathe out the fear of staying small — stuck or overwhelmed.

The full moon is about allowing — allowing to FEEL the expansion of who we are — open — expand and allow this to come up — alignment is found in the heart through expansion.

Breathe and allow the self to FEEL the energy that is ready to flow in through the heart space in abundance — allow the heart to fill up with more of who we are and allow to receive.

Breathe and expand, breathe and expand.

I love you all

JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “Mercury Retrograde April 2017 — Heart or Mind”

12123503 - planet with nebulos filaments

Mercury retrograde April 2017 starts on April 9 at 4° Taurus and ends on May 3 at 24° Aries.

Mercury retrograde April 2017 will cause some confusion and indecision about very serious matters. If problems with love or money are the issue then your options will be severely restricted.

You may be subject to intense pressure to choose between your heart and your mind. Mercury retrograde from April 9 to May 3 is not a good time for final decisions so hold out if you can. Mercury direct from May 3 to 20 brings clear insight and exciting new opportunities.

Before I go into more detail about Mercury retrograde April 2017, I will talk about what it means to have Mercury retrograde in your natal chart then the general meaning of Mercury retrograde in transit.

Mercury Retrograde Meaning

Natal Mercury retrograde means there was a problem with how you thought and communicated in a previous life. Perhaps you gave someone bad advice that had critical repercussions, or were prone to making costly mistakes. Maybe you wrote slanderous material about someone in a book or newspaper, or verbally teased and abused people.

Whatever the circumstances of the previous significant incarnation, you come into this life with those bad memories etched in your soul. You probably don’t recognize them as memories but as déjà vu or unexplained guilt. Especially when young, there can be a repeating theme of challenging events related to your past.

The aim of Mercury retrograde in your birth chart is for you to perfect those areas of thought and communication which once let you down. As your communication skills improve with experience, your karmic debt will be repaid and you can get off the roundabout.

Mercury retrograde in your natal chart can show as learning difficulties, especially with reading, writing and comprehension. You may be a shy, quite person whose thoughts have turned inward. Hesitant to speak up for yourself, you may miss out on many opportunities in life. This difficulty in expressing yourself can make you feel awkward in company and lead to low self-esteem. You may experience teasing or verbal abuse, be nagged and criticized, or fall victim to slander and lies. Contracts may also cause problems and like so many things, lead to complications further down the track.

Mercury retrograde only last for about three weeks so Mercury is going to turn direct at some stage in your progressed chart (where one day equals one year). After a couple of years you will notice that your communication style improves and you can express yourself more freely. However, the opposite can also occur and someone with Mercury direct in their natal chart may experience progressed Mercury retrograde later in life. I experienced this from age 13 to 37 and it was very profound. I even stopped reading books.

If you have Mercury retrograde in your natal or progressed chart then you can expect to make more rapid progress during transits of Mercury retrograde.

Transiting Mercury retrograde is a regular cycle occurring three or four times a year for about 24 days. While this is more frequent than any other planet, Mercury is still only retrograde 19% of the time. This is far less than Jupiter outwards, but more than Venus and Mars.

The Mercury retrograde phase is just one part of the Mercury retrograde cycle. The whole cycle includes Mercury going direct, retrograde, and direct again over the same degrees, or the retrograde zone. The two direct phases are called the shadow periods.

Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. There is a feel of a difficult Mercury–Saturn aspect about Mercury retrograde. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. While the Mercury retrograde period may be good for flicking through old photo albums, it is generally considered more of a nuisance than a benefit.

Mercury retrograde can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace. Double-check all of your emails and posts on Facebook before hitting the send button.

Business negotiations will be in a state of flux during Mercury retrograde so avoid signing contracts. Some important details will not yet be available, and other parties may not be reliable or honest. If going on a road trip then make sure you get your car serviced beforehand.

The riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication and transport are the few days either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. However, care should still be taken during the whole retrograde period.

Mercury Retrograde April 2017

March 27, 2017, Mercury enters shadow zone at 24°15′ Aries.

From now until when Mercury stations retrograde is called the first shadow period. During this phase you will get an idea of the thinking, communication or transport issues that may be of concern during the retrograde phase. [See Chart]

April 9, 2017, Mercury stations retrograde at 4°50′ Taurus.

Stationary Mercury retrograde at 4°50′ Taurus makes only one significant aspect as shown in the chart below. Moon quincunx Mercury is the major influence on Mercury retrograde April 2017. A weak trine to North Node and a fixed star conjunction add very little to the quincunx.

Moon quincunx Mercury creates some confusion around thinking and decision-making. The problem is knowing whether to trust your heart or your mind. Mercury is the rational mind while Moon is the emotional heart. This can show as hesitation, unreliability, confusion or disinterest.

If you feel balanced and not stressed about making a decision, you will naturally think with your head. An example of this Mercury decision-making process would be chosing between two apples to eat.

If you are emotionally attached to either option or feel pressured in some way, you are more likely to think with your heart. An example of this Moon decision-making process would be chosing a birthday present for your mother.

The trick is to take a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A balanced approach brings the best results. However, that’s easier said than done with Mercury retrograde. The chart below also reveals a number of challenging red aspects and more retrograde planets. These additional challenges reinforce the need to play it safe, especially in relationships.

Mercury Retrograde April 2017

Venus square Saturn reinforces the need to defer major decisions about your love life and finances. It can add stress to intimate relationships due to negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others.

Venus retrograde means your love life enters a fated period. Giving and receiving love and affection becomes more difficult. Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues.

Saturn retrograde is a double dose of karma. If you have been bad in the past, then at a certain predestined time, an event will occur to teach you a lesson. If you been good in the past, then at a predestined time, an event will occur to reward you for your good deeds.

The T-Square aspect pattern involving Sun, Jupiter and Pluto indicates a lot of pressure being placed on you to make important decisions. Ego’s will be on the line leading to threats, intimidation and ruthless behavior.

Sun opposite Jupiter brings opportunities for success, good fortune and increased happiness. However, letting any good fortune go to your head can result in loss, embarrassment and a lowering of self-esteem.

Sun square Pluto increases your need to be in control, but can also lead to ego conflicts with powerful people or authority figures. A crisis or conflict makes for an intense experience or destructive behavior.

Jupiter square Pluto brings an intense drive to reach the top. Success, power and influence are all possible but without some care there will be a price to pay. Ruthless determination, greed and corruption may get you there quicker or make you richer but at what cost?

Mercury retrograde is already a risky time for making important decisions. The numerous challenges mentioned above increase the risk of making the wrong decision. Playing for extra time during Mercury retrograde April 2017 is advised. At the very least, get a second opinion on any business negotiations, contacts, plans and most especially love relationships.

May 3, 2017, Mercury stations direct at 24°15′ Aries.

This second shadow period lasts until Mercury leaves the retrograde zone on May 20. Areas of life that were a major focus during the Mercury retrograde 2017 phase can now be worked on.

Mercury direct joins Uranus and forms a wonderful grand trine aspect pattern. The depressing life obstacles of Mercury retrograde April 2017 can now be overcome, resolved or left behind.

Mercury conjunct Uranus stimulates your thinking and adds excitement to your daily interacts and routines. The electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Increased open-mindedness and intuition can lead to flashes of insight and breakthroughs.

Mercury Retrograde 2017

Moon trine Saturn gives the patience and emotional strength to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. Others may come to you for advice on a personal issue or just for a shoulder to cry on. Traditional values and old habits can bring solutions to new problems.

Moon trine Mercury lets you see things clearly. Your feeling, intuitive side is balanced with your rational thought processes to give acute perceptive skills. You can read others easily and quickly assess any situation. Your are in touch with your own feelings to give sound judgement and decision-making skills.

Mercury trine Saturn is good for studying and catching up on your paperwork and bills. Sustained mental work will not seem so boring at usual. Good concentration and attention to detail means you will not make mistakes. You will get things done neatly and on time.

A grand trine requires conscious effort to unlock the good fortune held within. You cannot rely on lucky breaks to solve your problems. Higher self-awareness of your thought processes is required to let go of karmic baggage. Even if you made wrong choices during Mercury retrograde 2017, you can rapidly turn your life around for the better during Mercury direct.

May 20, 2017, Mercury leaves the shadow zone at 4°50′ Taurus to complete the second cycle of Mercury retrograde 2017. [See Chart]
