TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: Retrograde Season — June-August 2018”

2018 is year to build, it is a year to start creating a solid foundation so you can manifest the life of your dreams.

Since the start of the year the cosmos has been guiding us to take action and to start building up the life we desire. We have been working hard to create security and structure, and find balance with the current direction of our lives. But come the end of June a shift is in the air, and the Universe will be asking us to slow down.

From June 26th until August 27th we are going to have up to six planets in retrograde, which is going to slow everything down. These planets include: Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Mars, Neptune, Uranus, and Mercury.

Retrograde energy is about moving within. It is about pausing, reflecting, and working on what is already in front of you rather than reaching for anything new.

Retrogrades cause the expression of the planet to turn inwards, rather than outwards, which means we feel the effects of the planet on a different level. In some cases, we feel the planet more strongly as it’s working on a more internal, subconscious level.

It is often not until a retrograde cycle has completed that we are able to piece together what we what we have to clear in order to move forward.

During a heavy retrograde period like this, the energy of the cosmos becomes slow and instead of trying to push ahead, we have to instead look to our past and how our actions, attitudes, and beliefs are manifesting in our lives.

The Universe wants us to focus what is already on our plates and what we have already set in motion. In fact, trying to push ahead with so many planets in retrograde may make you feel that you are taking one step forward and two steps back.

Each planet gives off its own energy and vibration when in retrograde, but having so many planets retrograde at the same time may make it difficult to differentiate which is which.

Here is a short overview of each retrograde planet and the effects we may feel during this season:

Mars (June 26-August 27)

Mars is the most significant of these retrogrades as it retrogrades the least and its effects are much more noticeable. Mars retrogrades only once every 1.5 years or so, and when it does it really challenges us to assess and review the direction of our lives. Mars will retrograde through the sign of Aquarius and Capricorn, and under this energy we are going to be guided to really go over the past and to reflect on how our actions have been serving or hindering us.

Saturn (April 18-September 6)

Saturn will be retrograde in Capricorn for at least half of the year so we have time to adjust to the energies. Saturn retrograde has been guiding us to focus on what we want to take responsibility for and where we need to set boundaries in our lives. Under this energy, Saturn will really be drawing our attention to whatever we need to step up and take ownership of in order to create the life that we desire. We may have to look over our past actions, or dig through old childhood patterns in order to find our way forward.

Neptune (June 18- November 25)

Neptune is retrograde for nearly half of the year so we don’t feel these effects as strongly. We also have time to adjust to the energies. Neptune is retrograde in the sign of Pisces, and will be helping us to come to terms with our spirituality. We may have new ideas or understanding around our spirituality, or we may even feel confused about what we believe in. After turning direct, clarity usually follows and we may receive a new understanding.

Jupiter (March 9- July 10)

Jupiter retrograde will be guiding us to think about bigger, global causes and how we can make changes that impact the greater good. As Jupiter retrogrades through Scorpio, issues around sexuality and gender equality may come to the forefront. We may also be guided to assess where we need to think bigger in order to get where we want to be.

Pluto (April 22-October 2)

Pluto is also retrograde for most of the year which is why we don’t feel the effects of this retrograde as strongly. Pluto is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn and is going to be helping us to dig through any skeletons in the closet and to release them once and for all. Secrets may be revealed, or you may receive a new understanding or a new truth during this time. Pluto retrograde touches us all differently, but essentially some type of death and rebirth cycle will take place.

Mercury (July 26th-August 19)

Mercury goes retrograde every few months so its energy is nothing we aren’t used to. The effects of Mercury retrograde during this season are likely to be amplified and we may feel more out of sorts than usual. During Mercury retrograde in Leo, we may be encouraged to think about new ways to be creative. Mercury retrograde is a time to go within and uncover buried thoughts, feelings, and emotions. It is a time to also dig up any subconscious thought patterns that may be blocking us.

Uranus (August 7- January 6, 2019)

Uranus goes retrograde until 2019 through the signs of Taurus and Aries. Under this retrograde energy we are going to be clearing and wrapping up lessons from 2008, when Uranus first entered Aries. As Uranus travels out of Taurus and back into Aries, we will be given any final lessons or gifts, and we will be really encouraged to start a new chapter and a new cycle. After turning direct, Uranus in Taurus will present us with new themes and lessons for the new year.

Collectively, all of these retrograding planets and energies are going to be guiding us to consider our actions and what choices we have been making in our lives so far.

Have we been making decisions based on fear or have we been making decisions based on love?

Have we been letting people walk all over us or have we been setting firm boundaries?

Have we been speaking our truth and communicating clearly or have we been lying or avoiding the truth?

These are all things we are going to have to ponder during this period of retrograde activity.

After the end of August, things will start speeding up again and we will be able to begin taking more forward moving action.

It is also worth mentioning that Venus will go retrograde from October 5 until November 16. While this energy won’t slow things down as much as Mars Retrograde, it is a very clear sign from the Universe that we are being asked to really be in review and assessment mode for the rest of the year.

As 2018 is a year to build and establish yourself, it makes sense that we would really be encouraged to go over things and review actions we have taken so far.

We are all in the mode of preparing our foundation and building things up brick by brick. We may not be able to see the finished product just yet, but a skilled builder knows that it’s all about creating the perfect foundation and ensuring that the bottom bricks are strong enough to hold whatever is going to go on top.

Under all this retrograde energy, we are going to have to make sure we are building with integrity, with our hearts, and with our highest intentions in mind.

We are all going to be called to ensure that what we are building is aligned with our highest good.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Buckle Up! It’s Going To Be A Crazy Summer With 6 Planets Going Retrograde”

The planets within our solar system are in a constant motion as they revolve around our Sun.

When we gaze into the night sky, our planets move to the East relative to the stars. However, there are times where it appears that a planet is moving in the opposite direction, to the West, and that is when a planet is referred to as moving retrograde.

Retrograde motion is when a planet appears, when observed from Earth, in reverse direction. The reason why this happens is that of an optical illusion caused by differences in orbit. In the realm of astrology, the retrograde motion has severe negative connotations.

As Mercury is the planet said to rule communication, those who are astrologically inclined expect frequent misunderstandings, scheduling problems and disagreements with friends during this period. It enters apparent retrograde motion between three and four times a year, for about three weeks at a time.

This is because Mercury is the fastest revolving planet in our Solar System. Seven out of the nine planetary energies go retrograde. The two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, can never go retrograde.

1. Pluto in Retrograde

The planet Pluto will continue retrograding till the 30th of September and it showers a real sense of direction on people while retrograding. It helps you to get over all your pains, sufferings and difficulties in life by making you more determined. It increases your ability to self-heal and recover from the wounds by increasing your willpower.

2. Saturn in Retrograde

Saturn has been retrograding for a while now and it will keep on doing so till the 6thof September. The revolving motion of the planet Saturn in an opposite directed has a direct connection with karma. While Saturn is in retrograde, people’s past will confront them and they will have to right the wrongs if they want to move forward with their lives.

3. Jupiter in Retrograde

Jupiter will continue to be in retrograde for some time and it comes out of retrograde on the 10th of July, which is a lot sooner than Pluto and Saturn. Although the energies coming out of Jupiter is not as valuable as the ones from Pluto and Saturn. But it is still very imperative.

4. Neptune in Retrograde

Neptune is yet to be in retrograde. Neptune will start revolving backward from the 18th of June and will stop on the 24th of November. It is a plant of life and positive energies but is also brings back people’s past and if they don’t confront their past, it may cause karmic repercussions.

5. Mars in Retrograde

Mars is yet to be in retrograde. It starts on the 26th of June and Mars will be in retrograde until the 27th of August. Mars is a very promising plant and it brings along with it a source of astonishing energy that mankind has never felt before.

6. Mercury in Retrograde

Mercury is yet to be in retrograde. It starts in the month of July and will not stop its motion before the 18th of August. The backward revolving motion of Mercury brings along with it a lot of sadness and grief. It makes people confront the things that they were hiding from, drawing them out to the light.

ZOE DAVENPORT: “New Moon Energy Update”

“If movement and music feel good in the heart, if it brings a smile it will be feeling good for the body, allow the voice to also activate through what sounds it needs to make to clear through those unspoken words.  Scream, shout, let it all out with this new moon as the energy will certainly carry an expanded potential to release on the subatomic layers of your being.”

~Zoe Davenport

 

If you have been feeling the collective energies it could be described as somewhat chaotic and a sense of moving backwards in time as the mind looks to rationalise the emotions coming out to play by hashing up old events, stories and timelines.

As we are moving into a very important part of 2018, to keep on track with what the heart is communicating on more subtle levels through the body, intuition and allowing things to sit and wait out a little more before acting upon.

The most effective way to clear through any old stuck energy right now is movement, get outside and play in the sunshine, dance around in your living room listening to your favourite music, shaking, jiggling, anything to get the body moving through the cellular memories of old beliefs.

It’s a conditioning with the mind/body and spirit to balance out so the cells can restore through the cleansing of carbon density, move into a more fluid way of creation, and resonate with more light.  This comes from attuned vibration through activating your energies in a way that is taking away from the mind and rational thoughts to stepping into what FEELS good in the NOW.  This new moon is will be feeling good with movement, play, jumping!

If movement and music feel good in the heart, if it brings a smile it will be feeling good for the body, allow the voice to also activate through what sounds it needs to make to clear through those unspoken words.  Scream, shout, let it all out with this new moon as the energy will certainly carry an expanded potential to release on the subatomic layers of your being.

This is a time to be inspired though yang, action through joy, movement through alignment to what the body needs to wake up, get going to flow through.

Talking is done, there is no more need to keep going over the “minds” “rational” version of events right now, it is quicker to call the body to the party to let go and surrender through being free in the moment to express how it needs to.

This will be a powerful time leading up to the summer solstice energies on the 21st June 2018 and the new moon movement energies are able to hold the frequency to the newness of what wants to manifest into the second half of 2018.

The movement will create a balance energetically as the body is feeling safe through self-expression and joy to release stuck beliefs.

This is a time of newness as our bodies are shifting and are needed to be loved unconditionally through the process, the old loops and cycles of past events cannot settle when there is a continued flow of energy throughout so keep moving and shaking and this yang will hold us safe through the shifts.

Set the intentions and allow it to feel good in the body, in the energy centers, in the heart, call in for support from the collective, and continue to play through each emotion by understanding then moving and activating the voice.

Don’t be afraid of self-expression through movement and play it will be an integral part to ascension and stepping into more fluid dimensional experiences and stuck energy cannot shift when the focus is on stuck energy is needs fluidity and light to flush through.  Much like the body detoxes so too the energetic systems need a clearing and moving, shaking and the voice will support and expand this process.

Shake, shake, shake, dance, jiggle, wiggle, scream, shout, let it ALL out, these old paradigm emotions have no space to reside within the cells of joy and love so allow a joyful new practice to come into motion this coming week and you will feel more abundantly supported, clear less stuck and spacious within the cells.

Abundant Blessings | Zoe Davenport

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “New Moon In Gemini — 13th June 2018 — Guiding You Every Step Of The Way”

Can you believe we are halfway through the year?  

2018 is a year of awakenings, growth, and building. It is a year to start building the foundation for your dreams.

As we reach the halfway mark, we are going to be reminded of this, and reminded of just how far we have come on our journey.

Life is never linear, it is always ebbing and flowing, moving and shaking. It is forever changing, and we have to be willing to change along with it.

The June New Moon falls on the 13th in the sign of Gemini, and is a sacred point in the year, a time where we can really think about how our lives have changed, and what new things or journeys we are going to work towards.

It is a time to reflect on what has transpired and to think about what is next. No matter what life has brought your way, no matter where you currently stand, this New Moon is here to help guide your way, and to remind you that it is never too late to begin again. It is never too late for a new beginning, no matter how big or how small.

Gemini energy is all about self-expression, speaking your truth, and finding your creativity. As an air sign, Gemini energy encourages us to think deeply so we can figure out what thoughts are true and what thoughts stem from our fears.

Our thoughts are so powerful, and can dictate how we experience and see the world. Our thoughts can also overrule our lives if we don’t keep them in check.

The good news is that you don’t have to believe everything you think. At any time, you can choose to let go of thoughts that are no longer serving you, and instead focus on thoughts that are. At any time, you can choose to replace negative thoughts with more positive ones.

Thoughts are so powerful, and so on this New Moon we are going to be encouraged to look and assess what thought processes and belief systems we are holding onto.

What stories do we keep telling ourselves? What thoughts are blocking us from moving forward?

If you can find the time to ask yourself these questions and to really dig deeper into the wisdom of your soul, you will be given all the support you need to rewrite or let go of stories that are no longer serving you.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: June Full Moon 2017”

Full Moon In Sagittarius.jpg

The June Full Moon falls on the 9th in the fire sign of Sagittarius, bringing intensity, transformation and optimism.

Sagittarius energy is wise and expansive. Whenever the Full Moon is in Sagittarius it amplifies our thoughts and feelings and brings more information to the surface.

It’s almost like this Full Moon is going to give us a magnifying glass so we can see in greater detail what is working and not working in our lives.

After this Full Moon, there is going to be a lot more clarity about what changes or adjustments need to be made and consequently there will be a peace that will follow.

The June Full Moon has an intense energy due to the presence of the planet Saturn, which is also currently touring the sign of Sagittarius.

Saturn is like the stern teacher of the cosmos and is always ensuring that we have done our homework and understood the karmic lessons that we have been sent to learn.

The Moon and Saturn will be working together to deliver any karmic messages and healing that we need in order to walk our highest path.

There is a transition or a shift that we all need to make in 2017 in order to align with our highest path and these two cosmic forces will be helping us all to achieve this.

2017 is a year of new beginnings and as we reach the midway point of the year, things are going to be speeding up to help us get started on this new chapter of our lives.

June’s Full Moon also falls between two Super New Moons, which means that endings are also likely to occur.

Full Moons often signify a time of completion and there may be something you are wrapping up or completing in your own life so you can start fresh.

 

The power of the upcoming Super New Moon later in the month will help you to know the right direction moving forward, but in the meantime it is important to focus on completion.

We have all worked so hard to achieve our goals over the last few months and this Full Moon is also a cause to celebrate and to honor all that we have been through.

Because Saturn is involved in this Full Moon, there is also going to be a need for us to really understand the karmic lessons at play so we can move on and move forward.

Whatever stirs for you around this Full Moon, know that it is part of your karmic journey and part of what your soul has come here to learn.

We are all here on a temporary journey of joy and growth, and it is important for all of us to keep finding the joy as we grow and evolve.

This Full Moon has a mixed energy, on one hand it is guiding us to go through some intense karmic lessons so we can heal and keep evolving on a spiritual level, but on the other hand it is also very optimistic and healing.

The June Full Moon is not just about delivering karmic lessons, but rather it is about delivering us peace and understanding so we can see the higher benefit of the lesson.

While the June Full Moon will be guiding us to shift and transform so we can start a new beginning, it will also be filling our lives with positive, expansive and optimistic energy.

The June Full Moon is potent, yet loving and will be there to guide you through the next few weeks so you can clear the past and welcome in a bright new future.

The trick with navigating this Full Moon is to focus on finding the joy and keeping and open mind. The more you can view things from an optimistic and open point of view, the easier it is going to be to understand what you have come to learn.

While life is about learning and evolving it is also about finding the joy, as the poet Hafiz says- “stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.”

Incorporate a youthful joy into your life in a lasting way.

4° in Gemini is also a “critical degree” in astrology – enhancing and strengthening the New Moon and the meaning of Gemini.

There are several important transits affecting other planets around this New Moon… One is Venus is square Pluto which will accentuate intense feelings, independence vs. security and any friction in your relationships or feelings about money.

Guard against being impulsive – and BREATHE.

Venus square Pluto allows you to clear the cobwebs and understand how you might repel love or abundance. Pay attention to the signs. When you do, you’ll awaken to the natural flow of love and prosperity for YOU.

A rare Finger of God pointing at Jupiter is a beautiful bonus! This “yod” with Mercury and Neptune at the base makes life feel beautiful, mystical and broadens compassion and creativity.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: May Super New Moon 2017”

may-super-new-moon

The potent Super New Moon falls in the air sign of Gemini on May 25th, 2017.

This Super New Moon is going to bring the start of a new cycle, however before this new energy can emerge, the old has to be cleared.

The old energy we are clearing this time around, comes from the events that stirred around the Scorpio Full Moon earlier in the month.

This was an intense Full Moon that likely brought things to the surface that needed to be cleared for some time.

Even though this Full Moon was only a few weeks ago, it is likely that it also brought things to the surface from way back in August 2016.

Perhaps if you look back on your life from that time period till now, you will see just how your journey has unfolded and how themes may have returned in order to be cleared or worked through once and for all.

New Moons and Full Moons always represent the start and end of a cycle, but often their impact lingers for months or even years. This is especially true when we have a Super Moon or an Eclipse.

This year, the Super New Moon in May will also be followed by another Super New Moon in June. This double hit of strong lunar energy means that things over the next few weeks may feel intense.

The Moon is responsible for our deeper emotions and feelings. The Moon rules over the unseen worlds and can bring whatever is hiding in our subconscious mind to the surface.

This can be confronting at times and can also challenge us to really make changes on the deepest of levels. The Moon also challenges us to pay attention to our intuition and the more energetic or spiritual sides of life.

As the Super New Moon falls in Gemini, it will be guiding us to focus on our thoughts and how we have been communicating to ourselves, to others and to the world.

Gemini energy is very “thought” driven and often there are times where we all experience our thoughts running away from us.

It is important to understand that our thoughts don’t really belong to us. In a way, our thoughts are like a stream that floats above us, and the thoughts we gravitate towards are the ones that are in alignment with the vibration we are emitting.

Your thoughts are not who you are. You are in fact, the observer of your thoughts but when you blur those lines and identify as your thoughts, that is when suffering can occur.

The Universe doesn’t cause our suffering, we do, our thoughts do. Events come and go, but it’s the thoughts we hold onto that cause us to suffer so much more.

We stress, we worry, we become fearful, and very soon we feel mentally, emotionally and even physically sick.

This New Moon is going to be challenging us to view our thoughts differently.

This Gemini energy is going to be guiding us to remember that we are simply the observer of our thoughts and that our thoughts don’t have to define us.

We may also find comfort in the fact that the more positive and harmonious we can make our thoughts, the more likely we are to feel better.

We don’t need to engage with all thoughts that come in, but we can open our mind to welcoming in positive and loving thoughts, for no other reason other than to feel good.

In fact, this is the super power that we all have- we are all in charge of choosing our thoughts, and what we choose can have a huge impact on how we view our lives.

This Gemini Super Moon is definitely going to be playing with our minds and encouraging us to review and assess the state of our mental activity and our thought processes.

When you can master your thoughts, that is when you will be able to master your life! So use this New Moon as an opportunity to reprogram the way you think.

The energy of this Super New Moon may feel intense, but know that the more you can keep your mind clear and positive, the easier it is going to be to navigate through.

The May Super New Moon energy is going to linger for the coming weeks and will work alongside the Super New Moon of June, so you may not  be able to fully feel the start of the new cycle just yet.

This month, Mother Moon will need some time to work her magic.

In fact, if you were planning to use this New Moon for manifestation work, you may have to wait a few days in order for this energy to settle so you can really see things clearly and manifest from a clear frame of mind.

Everyone is going to be affected by this New Moon slightly differently, so just keep an open mind and go with the flow.

Mother Moon is always on our side, we just have to trust.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: May Full Moon 2017”

May-Full-Moon-2017.jpg

May’s Full Moon falls on the 10th/11th in the watery sign of Scorpio and holds extremely powerful and potent energy.

Scorpio energy is all about transformation and reaching higher levels of consciousness. In fact, Scorpio energy has the potential to reach Divine levels of consciousness, but at the same time, it also has the ability to reach extremely low levels of consciousness as well.

No matter where you fall on the “consciousness spectrum” it is likely that this Full Moon is going to leave a lasting impact. It is also likely that this Full Moon is going to help open your consciousness to a new level so you can see things in a different light.

May’s Full Moon is going to represent a turning point in the year and an opportunity to really embrace and accept any recent changes.

It is also going to bring about a powerful transformative shift that will really allow you to move forward.

In fact, after the energy of this Full Moon starts to fade, you may be feeling a greater sense of understanding of the road ahead. This is also due to the fact that both Mercury and Venus, which have recently been retrograde, are also going to start speeding up.

Things may feel a little uneasy leading up to the Full Moon as changes may be in the air, but the best way to manage this energy moving forward is remembering your personal power.

Very often we forget that we have a strength and a power within us. This power gives us the ability to step up and take responsibility over our lives no matter what troubles we find ourselves in.

The minute we give away our power, it becomes very difficult to deal with the situations that life throws our way. But, when we remember that we have infinite wisdom and potential within, it becomes much easier to navigate through murky times.

Claiming your personal power is really about acknowledging that you are more than just a physical body.

In order to really step up into your power, you have to know that you are a highly advanced and intelligent energetic being that has a soul that is both timeless and endless.

If you have been needing to remind yourself of this, if you have been needing to connect within and tune into that inner power, this Scorpio Full Moon is going to be the perfect time to do it.

Full Moon’s usually symbolise a time of releasing and letting go, however the potency of this Scorpio Moon also makes it a great time to send your wishes into the cosmos.

Reaching out to your Spirit Team for help and guidance will also be easier under this cosmic influence, so definitely use this energy to your advantage.

Part of understanding your personal power is knowing that you are not alone, and that you have a team of Spirit Guides and Angels that are on your side to help you move through life.

Many astrologers and ancient cultures have always believed that the Scorpio Full Moon is one of the most powerful for reaching out to ancient ancestors and guardian spirits. It is also believed to be one of the best Full Moon’s for rituals and manifestation work.

With so much magic energy circling in the first part of May, it is going to be impossible not to feel the effects of this Full Moon.

Whatever stirs for you this week, let the Moon be your guide and see if you can be open to viewing things from a higher level of consciousness.

Transformation is going to occur under this Full Moon and everyone is going to feel this on some level.

Be open to where the Universe is directing you and know that when you claim your power, there is no mountain to high or obstacle too difficult.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: April New Moon 2017”

april-new-moon-astrology-2017.jpg

The April New Moon falls on the 26th in the earth sign of Taurus, which will bring a fresh new energy.

April has been an interesting month because of the many planets in retrograde. This has caused the month to feel somewhat sluggish and perhaps things from the past that you thought were cleared and resolved have bubbled to the surface for a revisit.

The energy of this month may have made you feel as if you are walking around in circles, but know that the New Moon energy is going to bring a change, a slow change, but a change nonetheless.

This New Moon falls in the practical and earthy sign of Taurus, which means that there is a certain element of needing to double check things and really assess things before moving forward.

Even though Mother Moon herself will bring change and a new beginning, Taurus energy will really require us to move slowly and to really think about our safety and security.

Taurus energy is all about ensuring that we have created a solid foundation before leaping ahead. To do this, Taurus energy guides us to find our ‘comfort zone’ and to build from this place.

If you have felt scattered and all over the place this year so far, this New Moon will help you to find your comfort zone. In other words, this New Moon will be helping you to find stability and security in your life so you can move forward with more ease.

This may take time and trial and error, but if you follow the energy of this New Moon and allow yourself to be guided, you will find the perfect spot to build your empire.

This energy from the New Moon may not be felt straight away, as Taurus energy is slow and very methodical. It moves at its own pace and at first, it may be hard to notice where this New Moon is guiding you to.

The retrograde energy is also going to amplify these feelings and perhaps it will seem like your are wading through a murky fog for the rest of the month.

This will be short lived and the energy of the cosmos will start moving again eventually. In fact, if you use this energy and let it guide you, it can actually be extremely productive.

The April New Moon will help us to switch gears so we can look at things from a different point of view.

Perhaps we need to look down at the ground we are standing on instead of up in the sky. Perhaps we need to look at what is already in front of us and around us rather than trying to create anything new.

Overall, the Taurus New Moon is a gentle one and is going to allow you to feel more comforted and secure with your current situation.

This New Moon is not going to stir up anything abruptly or mess with your emotions too much. All it is going to do is help you to find your feet.

Under this current energy, try as much as possible to go with the flow and to not rush ahead with anything too quickly. Give yourself time and focus on what is already in front of you rather than doing anything new.

If you are looking to create more security and comfort in your life on any level, whether it is financially, in your relationships or even in your own self, this New Moon will also be the perfect time to set an intention.

Comfort, security and peace of mind are all things that we need at times in order to keep growing and pushing ourselves further.

Even though it is not possible to always feel these things, this New Moon will light the path ahead for you and allow you to feel safe and supported on your journey no matter where you are.

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 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.
