Transits

What the YOD?

YOD Example
Here the YOD is Moon (150 degree inconjunct) Saturn (60 degree sextile) Mars (150 degree incojunct) Moon.

The YOD aka Finger of God aka Finger of Fate

First know the YOD aspect pattern consists of two planets sextile each other and inconjunct (150 degrees) to a third planet sitting on the inverse midpoint. If you connect the dots, you come up with a lovely isosceles triangle. AKA YOD or Finger of Fate/God.

the yod aspect

Check the examples to the left. The RED lines represent the inconjunct / quincunx (150 degree apart) and the green lines represents the sextile (60 degree apart). You can check your natal chart right now. If you have two (or more in some cases) planets 60 degrees apart AND 150 degrees to a singular third planet, bingo, you have a YOD.

The feature image above shows off the transiting YOD in late November 2018, perfected when the Moon reaches 7 degrees of Leo.

Remember, there are a lot of other chart patterns every bit as exciting as the Yod. For example the grand trine, which is three planets in the trine aspect of 120 degrees, (green lines) or squares and oppositions (red line).

How to read the YOD

So, what does the YOD mean? Here we can review the basic tenants of astrology to unravel it:

  • Planets are the actors
  • Signs are the costumes they wear
  • Houses are the stage or sets they act on
  • Aspects are the scripts/dialog the actors have with each other.

No matter what aspect, a dialog forms between the planets involved. The planets connect, like table legs (as Richard Idemon would say). Pick one up and anything in aspect comes up with it. In other words if you have Moon sextile Mars and get emotional, Mars energy will be there instantly. You may want to stand your ground or fight or take charge. The reverse is true too. If you take charge or get in a fight you might feel very deeply. Battle might be nurturing to you!  With the YOD, you'll find three planets connected, scripted to interact. Interestingly, they will all be a different element and a different modality. It's often not a comfortable match, to start with.

YOD Examples

Let's imagine Mercury sextiles Mars and they are both inconjunct Neptune. If you activate Mercury by communicating, you automatically wake up the other two planets. The energy of Mercury sweeps along to Mars (action) and shoots toward Neptune to express. Ideally, the apex planet channels the energy of the other two.

How might this work out in real life? Let's say you're on a date and Mercury is talking, connecting and asking questions, having a great time. But doing so wakes up assertive go-getter Mars  who wants 'a little less conversation; a little more action'. Mars gets bored and pushes in. At this point the dialog might turn to adventure, MMA, sports or stories about all the amazing things you've done. While that's going on, mystical Neptune stirs. Now things get dreamy, the wine flows and all the talk is about meditation, art, film or higher guidance. This can lead to a tug-o-war over who gets to express. It's a big job for the apex planet to orchestrate it all. A first date might have trouble handling it all.

Summary

To sum it up, the Yod means three, or more, of your planets are in dialog with each other and it's up to the apex planet to harmonize and express the energy. It's called the finger of fate or God because without awareness, and experience, it can be a source or contrast and challenge. Wherever it sits in the chart, (what houses or areas of life are activated) describes where a pattern of behavior or external events occur.

But 'fate' doesn't control you. Your thoughts do. Through awareness, you can learn to turn your YOD to gold.

Members, if you want to chat about your YOD on the forum, I've just made a new thread there.

I'd love to hear how you handle your natal and transiting YODS.

July 27 Eclipse Energy

Minitokyo

Welcome to the July 27 Eclipse - the second on of the season

The July 27 Eclipse energy is raw, potent and potentially life changing. You're going to want to get into alignment with the flow, release resistance and sort out any stagnant behaviors. This is a total lunar eclipse, the full moon @4 Aquarius on the South Lunar Node, and conjunct Mars Rx – the perfect time to let go of ‘tolerations’ and ease up on the gas.

Here's the 6 minute Vlog to get you up to speed, and feeling confident:

LA - July 27 - 1:21 pm

NY - July 27 - 4:21 pm

Lon - July 27 - 9:21 pm

Syd - July 28 - 6:21 am

Quick Eclipse Tips

The eclipse means the moon is conjunct the North Lunar Node and opposite the sun/South Node. Symbolically, it’s a time of culmination and release.

Expect some emotional cleansing, the ‘good for the soul’ kind. You might also find something you’ve been waiting for arrives – the news, the green light, the big opportunity, and if not, you understand where, how, when and why it’s time to regroup. Either way, see it as a msg that progress is possible, and it is! The focus might well be on relationship and there could be a big CHARGE that needs releasing. You could see the light in terms of how to live your connections in a more fulfilling-to-you way.

Remember, if you want to improve your relationships ‘out there’ in the world, improve your relationship to yourself. It all begins with you.

How to go with the wild flow of this eclipse?

First, release those ‘tolerations’. Here’s how Jeannette Maw describes them:

To tolerate something means to “allow the existence of, to permit or endure or put up with something.” This implies that the something (or someone) is less than ideal and tends to drain a person’s energy. Thus, a toleration is often a hindering influence to the vibration. More . . .

Rainer Maria Rilke puts it like this:

It is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves from case to case, indescribably monotonous and unrenewed: it is shyness before any sort of new, unforeseeable experience with which one does not think oneself able to cope. But only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatic, will live the relation to another as something alive.

Go to your chart now and identify which houses are activated by this eclipse, especially the T-Square from Uranus (as discussed on the vid). Those are the areas of like where you can decluter, release, let go and move on, and have eyes for the gifts. Things get exciting, edge even, and take you on your way! Go with it, and evolve.

Solstice Dance 2018

Solstice Dance - Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert
Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert

The Solstice Dance

Hi Everyone, I'm updating the Solstice post, making it relevant for June 21, 2018. It's happening now!

Happy mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. This is a time to celebrate, appreciate and feel gratitude for the blessings in life. Let's count them! Fuel our goals, aspirations and desires by honoring the connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Make this whole week a an inner, and outer celebration.

Think of the Solstice Dance as a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings. With Uranus and Chiron closely connected to the o degree Cancer sun (the solstice point), something in your life is on the brink of change.

Technical Notes

In Astrology, two major things happen at the solstice.

1) Sun crosses the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. Pardon, you might say. The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

2) the sun crosses the Draconic Nodes, releasing energy to move you along your path.

If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts on what you want to experience on or in the days after the Solstice.

Deliberate Creations tips for the Solstice Dance, from the JeanetteBecome a Skilled Receiver, I Am Statements 101You're Always Doing it!

Using your Chart to Amp up Solstice Intentions

It's easy to use your chart to amp up your intentions. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think of greeting this energy with reverence and respect, ready to engage, give and receive. This is where you do your Solstice Dance of enthusiasm and joy.
  2. Hone in on 0 degrees of Cancer in your chart. Give it an 8 - 10 degree orb either way. (20 Gemini to 10 Cancer). Any planets there? What house is the focus on? Transits to that house?
  3. Notice how you feel in this area of life, what you want and then relax about it. Let the universe do her thing!

Not sure how to find these positions in your natal chart? Pop over to the GVA Forum and we’ll give you a hand.

Happy Solstice everyone!

Use Astrology to Boost your Manifesting

Image by Shana Erback
Image by Shana Erback

Hi Everyone! Use astrology to boost your manifesting is a re-blog from Jeannette's GoodVibeBlog posted in 2013 when GVA first opened. I realized this flows perfectly with the last call of the Home Sweet Home course and wanted to post it here as well.

Our aim is to marry up the powerful arts of astrology and deliberate creation.

(Hats off to you savvy creators who are already doing so!)

But for those of you who this might be foreign to, or anyone in need of some tips and reminders, here are six ways astrology can amp up your manifesting game:

Image by Elena Lishanskaya
Image by Elena Lishanskaya

1. Harness planetary energy

Everything vibrates – including you, me, our thoughts and all those beautiful planets.

How do those universal bodies affect your vibration?  And how can you use those energies to your manifesting benefit?

All it takes is some basic astrological knowledge to get more bang for your focusing buck.  You’ll find it makes all the difference in the world when you work with planetary cyclical energy rather in ignorance of it.

2.  Get a better handle on contrast

When things seem to be going sideways, it can help to spot the transits involved and understand the ‘message in the madness’.  (Just seeing transformation ahead, and the core purpose of it all, can bring relief in the present moment!)

3.  Find reasons to believe

When we can see how the stars are lining up to support what we want, it makes it even easier to believe in our success.  And belief and expectation are big parts of the LOA game.

When I saw Jupiter moving into my tenth house, my LOA-friendly interpretation was that this was the time my professional platform really wanted to grow.  That was no time to play it small – and seeing that energy in play made me braver in honoring bold work inspirations.

4.  Enhance self love

It is nearly impossible to study your natal chart without falling in love with yourself.  You’ll see all your complexities and quirks that make you uniquely you.  Since the world can only reflect how we feel about ourselves, self love is a helpful vibe to amplify.

5.  See others from the eyes of God/Source

We’re co-creating the others in our lives based on how we think about and know them.  So finding a way to see them in their highest light allows you to experience the best they have to offer.  Astrology is a powerful way to tap into another’s best self.  (In the past, knowing an ex was a triple Virgo helped me cut him lots of slack when he tended to criticize instead of appreciate.)

6.  Identify and leverage your best LOA power tools

Your personal astrology inclines you to certain manifesting gifts.  Once you know them, you can take full conscious advantage of them.  (Example, my Libra sun makes it easy for me to see other points of view, and thus to be more flexible in how I perceive reality.  Which is why I’m so good at leveraging Abraham’s advice to “see ‘what is’ in a way that pleases you.”)

How do you use astrology to become a more powerful deliberate creator?  We’d love to hear from you in the comments!

And if you’re interested in some first class guidance in using astrology to improve your manifesting results, Join us at GVA.

A Fun Manifesting Example

Thanks so much for re-posting here, Jeannette.

So, here's and example of an LOA  technique based on Saturn transiting my 4th house. It's a combo of the above #5 and #6 - Seeing others from the eyes of Source and seeing what is, in a way that is pleasing to me.

The Astro: Many of you know I have had Saturn transiting through my 4th house for several years. It put the focus on home and family, and I admit, I was having difficulties. We live in close quarters so, you know...

What I did to see them all from Source perspective, and get happy with What is, was IMAGINE each individual member of the family in a way that perfectly delighted me and found an image that matched. I added myself to the mix, and visit the images when I need to remind myself how wonderful these people are. Here, let me show you:

Aaron
Virgo son
Sara
Aries Daughter-in-Law
 Kayla
Virgo Granddaughter
Kinayda*another Virgo* Grandson
 Son

Leo Grandson

KimGemini me :)

It's an amazing practice and has transformed a contrasting Home Sweet Home to a delightful one.

I'd love to hear what current transits you have now and what LOA techniques you're using to boost your manifesting. Hop on the comments to share, or ask questions.

Thanks for joining us. See you there!

Sedna - Journey to the Edge

Sedna is a painting by Antony Galbraith
Sedna by Antony Galbraith

Sedna - Journey to the Edge - Updated from Falconastrology 2006.

Who is Sedna?

Sedna dwells in a remote region of space, a distant world whose discovery tripled the size of our solar system. Seen from her icy surface, our sun is only a twinkling star. Extremely cold, red, eccentric in orbit and with a mysterious constitution, her first sighting on November 14, 2003, 06:32 AM UT at Palomar Mountain, California marks a new shift in human awareness. Nothing this far away has ever been seen before.

Early newspaper headlines proclaimed Sedna as our 10th planet though Dr Michael Brown, who named her for the Inuit goddess of the Arctic seas, predicted Sedna would be classified as a planetoid, along with Pluto, Eris and other "Trans-Neptune" bodies. Estimated at about 1800 km, or 2/3 the size of Pluto, Sedna is the largest and most outlying body found since 1930.

Sedna orbits somewhere beyond the outer edge of the Kuiper Belt and the inner periphery of the hypothesized Oort cloud, a vast source of comets and other frozen bodies thought to extend halfway to the next nearest star, Alpha Centauri. Her distance is between 76AU and 942AU, making a single journey around the sun in about 11,400 years, compared to the planetoid Eris, with an orbit of 557 years and Pluto, 248 years.

Some Perspective on Distance

Though remote, Sedna is still much closer than the ‘fixed stars’, important astrological indicators in the chart. Like homoeopathy, distance (dilution) may actually increase potency. The question is what kind of potency?sedna-art

The Astrological Sedna

Determining the astrological significance of Sedna requires observation and time. Research includes exploring the mythology of the name, collective movements and social spotlights at the time of discovery and events, internal and external, that link to the natal and mundane placement of Sedna in the chart.

Things to Consider

Dennis Elwell, astrologer and author, cautions against giving excessive weight to singular episodes in the mythology and not enough to empirical experience. Though mythic themes are insightful, events coinciding with Sedna activation by transit must be considered equally.

Naming Sedna

The first coincidence is the naming of Sedna . How do we know they got it right? Liz Greene, from London’s Centre for Psychological Astrology, elaborates on this topic.

“There is…a curious synchronicity between the time when the planet is discovered and the emergence in society of values and experiences which the planet represents symbolically. It’s as though the planet breaks upon consciousness in both a literal and symbolic way. I can’t really answer you as to why Uranus is called Uranus and Neptune, Neptune. I can only say that in some mysterious fashion they get the names right.”

The Inuit Sedna

Sedna resides in the icy depths of Adlivun, the Arctic underworld beneath the sea. There she rules all marine life and controls the fate of humans by releasing her bounty to respectful hunters and withholding it from careless ones. Disregard for the sacredness of life is the worst offence. When this happens, her long hair tangles with filth and requires a shaman’s journey to appease her rage.

The legends vary regarding her origins, though in most stories, Sedna was once a beautiful girl. Many suitors came to ask for her hand in marriage yet she rejected them all, much to her father’s anguish. When one wealthy hunter was refused, he gave her his dog, saying it was all she deserved. She then marries the dog and gives birth to pups and babes alike.

Ironically, a dog to the Inuit symbolizes faithfulness to one’s own spirit, making this union a mark of individuation, completion within herself. The hunter and her father, however, are appalled. When the dog-husband carries food to his banished offspring, Sedna’s father places stones in his pack and drowns him.

Still, Sedna continues to refuse all suitors until a mysterious man arrives dressed in very fine skins and feathers. Intrigued by the promise of warmth and abundance, she agrees to wed.

But it doesn't go well. Her new husband’s guarantee of comfort vanishes when Sedna realizes he is a Fulmar, a dangerous bird spirit living on a desolate island. Although he brings her fresh fish every day, there is no warmth, no furs, and no lamp oil. She falls into despair, wailing her lament.

Another Version

The Legend of Sedna (Sraiya, ca. 2010, pen and ink)

In yet another version, Sedna is the child of two deities. Though well fed, she is a hungry girl and chews into her parents’ flesh while they sleep. For this, she is sent into exile.

In every version, Sedna eventually ends up in a kayak with her father who finally comes to rescue her. A terrible storm ensues, stirred by the angry Fulmar or other offended spirits who don't want to let her go. Her father fears for his life and tosses Sedna overboard. (Thanks, dad...)

When she grasps the side of the kayak and tries to climb back in, he chops her frozen fingers off, one by one with an axe. As her finger joints fall into the sea, they turn into seals, whales, polar bears, fish, dolphins and walruses.

Sedna sinks below the waves, her upper body remaining a woman and her lower body transforming into a fish or dolphin tail. She comes to rest at the bottom of the ocean floor and is guarded by her faithful dog-husband.

Sometimes she is depicted as a grotesque, one-eyed vision of outraged spite. Other images are more seductive and mermaid-like. She probably can be both.

The Mermaid Mythos and Other Connections

Stories of mermaids, circulating for centuries and underscored periodically with actual sightings, tell of sea creatures, half female-half fish or dolphin. They personify both the alluring and treacherous aspects of the feminine, residing in the sea of the unconscious, holding a key to life and death. Like Sedna, they maintain specific taboos and seem to represent an innate fear of the sacred feminine.

European tales like The Handless Maiden also involve a father who cuts off his daughter’s hands. The loss of the hands is a potent and disturbing symbol. Hands represent our dexterity, allowing us to control and interact with the world. The father’s act of maiming his child—in the Inuit and European stories —is, to us, poorly motivated. Because he was afraid of the Fulmar? Afraid of her?

Lack of proportional incentive makes these tales all the more disturbing. Among other things, they say something about abused family authority, a theme in the Sedna mythology.

The Life-Death-Life Goddess

This doesn’t mean that Sedna is a victim. Quite the opposite, she is a life-death-life goddess. Her power and authority regulate who, by their right action, will live and who, by their negligence, will starve. Here is what Dr Kathleen Jenks says about Sedna and victimization.

“When victimization moves to the goddess-level as it does with Sedna, (it) signals us that there's an extra depth of compassion for the abused. It also tells us that this goddess-archetype has the wherewithal to make a difference and empower that person whose (planets) are resonating with Sedna’s sphere of power.

Sedna may come to represent an extreme terrain of the unconscious, one where issues of power, authority and respect for life do not separate from a respect for oneself. The Inuit are an animistic people, seeing divinity in all things. Sedna may ask us to account for previously unconsidered forms of negligence towards ourselves and our living planet.

Te_Fiti_8Connecting with Sedna

Unappeasable by force, bribe or cajole, Sedna is softened by a shaman’s song of life. The 2003 New Zealand film, Whale Rider, and the more recent 2016 Moana echoes such a shamanic journey, impelled by the spirit of a people in need. Perhaps this is how we are to commune with Sedna, through the guided imagery of dreams and spirit-journeys, stories and song.

World Events at Discovery

Sedna's discovery on November 14th, 2003 at 17 Taurus 58 coincides with 350 million people uniting in World Diabetes Day. Venerated astrologer Isabel Hickey taught that diabetes was a physical form of emotional bitterness, the inability to balance negative thoughts with positive ones. This highlights Venus, ruler of both Taurus, the sign of Sedna’s current transit and Libra, the sign long associated with this disease.

Venus also links to personal, one-to-one, socially significant relationships and the drive for balance there.

Consider other world events coinciding with this discovery, and what they may say about fear, abuse of power and Mother Earth’s immutable authority. Here are just a few.

“Alaska's native horse killed off by food shortages and climate change - not human hunters.”

How actively do we protect and nurture life on earth?

“The world's most damaging potato disease discovered in Britain.”

How do we respond to the threat of food shortage and disease?

“Opposition to USA Patriot Act Swells”

How well do democratic governments protect the rights of their citizens?

“A gas explosion in a southern China coal mine killed 48 workers, injured two others.”

How well do we protect our labor force?

"Southeast Asia Water Forum- - Chiang Mai, Thailand."

How do we protect our oceans/freshwater ecosystems?

Tracking Personal Experiences

Sedna has been transiting through mid-Aries to mid-Taurus these last 85 years. Current generations share a similar placement in their astrological charts by sign and outer planet aspect, though house position and contacts to the personal planets are more unique.

Recording the transits of Sedna and checking activation dates against inner and outer life events will help reveal her meaning on a personal level. A downloadable Ephemeris is available online at Astrodienst to keep track. There is also an ephemeris generator on Jon Dunn’s Astro site that gives declination, sidereal and draconic zodiacs.

Practical Examples

Transiting Sedna was exactly opposite my natal third house Saturn when learning to SCUBA dive in areas rich with sea lions, dolphins and whales. By facing fears (Saturn) this time led to more self-confidence and empowerment, particularly in the area of communication, higher education and teaching (3rd-9th house axis).

For another woman, when transiting Sedna exactly squared the natal Moon in Aquarius, it coincided with a separation from an abusive relationship and major change of residence. Both these transits reflect significant turning points in life.

Chart and Dream

Charolette_Natal

Above is the chart of a woman called Charlotte. During a troubled time, she sought astrological consultation, bringing this dream.

"I am looking into a deep inland sea, edged by descending stairs. I feel compelled to follow the stairs down into the caverns underneath the water. I somehow know there is something down there that is hungry, trapped. I race down the steps and glimpse an enormous black walrus stuck in the dry caverns, unable to get to the water.

I race on to free it, but as I turn the last descent of stairs, I run straight into a cement wall.

The way has been blocked, sealed off. I can’t get to the creature to feed it and return it to the sea and I know it will die."

Charlotte's Natal Sedna 4 Taurus 16
Transiting Sedna 17 Taurus 52

Interpretation

On examination of her chart, transiting Sedna was conjunct her natal 12th house Sun. Note her chart ruler, Venus, conjuncts natal Sedna, also in the 12th. With the abundance of Earth (Taurus), she has a naturally pragmatic approach to life—sweet, calm and compelled by the realm of the senses. However, all that Earth is “trapped” in the non-corporeal 12th house, the sea of the unconscious.

Her relationship with the mundane world was well established yet her connection to her inner world remained relatively unexplored.

The sea links to the vast depths of Charlotte’s unconscious 12th house. It is interesting that mythically Sedna used her creatures, whales and seals, to communicate with the People, to feed them or not as they deserved.

So, the only way to reach Sedna, however through the spirit journey of the shaman. Once in Sedna's realm, the shaman placates her anger by asking how the taboos have been broken and what can be done to correct the offense. The shaman then combs her tangled hair, releasing the souls of animals abused and chants to her songs of life.

Hearing the Myth of Sedna

When Charlotte heard the myth of Sedna, she realized, through a stream of tears, she had always wanted to pursue her artistic talents but worked as a bookkeeper in her father’s business instead. She had never acknowledged how empty she felt.

By exploring the inherent conflict between the 12th house Sun in Taurus (square 3rd house Leo Moon) she found ways to feed and nurture her creative and mystical longings as well as her need for practical security. This Sedna transit coincided with an application and acceptance to art school, greater independence (separation from the father) and a new journey into her hidden world of creativity and spirit.

Although other transits occurred at this time, the imagery in Charlotte’s dream and the personal relevance she felt resonated strongly with Sedna.

Conclusions

To sum up, Sedna’s discovery heralds the expansion of not only our solar system but our capacity for conscious awareness. By tracking Sedna’s transits—perhaps looking first at the conjunctions, squares and oppositions—themes of her message will arise.

Where is 25 - 27 degrees of Taurus in your natal chart? What planets or angles are activated by this contact? Have a look and be a part of this new and intriguing exploration into the unknown.

Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-Stein

Ready for the Eclipse Season?

Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-SteinEclipse Season Image by Catrin Welz-Stein

The 2018 Eclipse Season is upon us. Are you ready?

Eclipse Season Dates

The first eclipse of the year is January 31/February 1 – a (Full Moon) Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo linking Sun-Moon-Nodes to Ceres, Venus and Neptune. The last time we had a Lunar Eclipse at this degree was January 1999.

This current eclipse is significant because it is not only a total eclipse, but also a 'blue' moon (second full moon of the month in the northern hemisphere) and a supermoon* or at it's perigee. Think of this as activating and heightening emotions, perspectives and sensations while possibly shortening fuses. This may not be negative for you at all. With awareness, you can use a 'short fuse' to release tolerations, setting free pent up emotions and clearing the air. Just know you might cut a wide swath. Without awareness, there could be fallout.

In your natal chart, attention is placed on opposite polarities like yin and yang, home and career, internal and external, Self and Others. You have a chance to balance life, especially in the houses touched by this eclipse. Namely, the houses where you find 11 Leo and 11 Aquarius. If you need help finding those houses, run through the simple steps below, or give a shout out in the comments.

Eclipse Season in Perspective

In ancient times, eclipses were associated with dramatic events, political, geological or existential. Hence the apprehension many feel when an eclipse is impending. Luckily, it's not the 1400s anymore, and we aren't locked into a single perspective. We decide how we will align with these Sun-moon-node cycles. Most importantly, we focus on the gifts they bring.

By checking where the eclipse falls in your chart, we can be open to the positive, creative change on offer. It's easy to do. Just follow these simple steps.

For the Jan 31sr/Feb 1st Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your favorite software)
  2. Check where 11 Degrees of Leo and 15 degrees of Leo falls
  3. Focus on those HOUSES to see where you will receive your cosmic gifts

For the Partial Solar Eclipse on February 15th/16th:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your fav software)
  2. Check where 27 degress of Aquarius is in your chart
  3. Look at that HOUSE to open to the kick-ass fresh start on offer

Prep for the Eclipse Season Gifts

Ways to prepare for the eclipse opportunities include:

  1. Revisit your core values
  2. Make a list of tolerations to release
  3. Think about home live vs. career - balanced?
  4. Clean and de-clutter the house, or even a drawer
  5. Clear up misunderstandings in relationships
  6. Get more rest
  7. Boost your nutrition
  8. Find more time to exercise
  9. Appreciate what is, just as it is
  10. Amp up self love

Let's talk more about this in the comments.

Happy eclipse season gifts! I'd love to hear how this shapes up for you.
