Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Home Sweet Home Call 2. What a great discussion!

HSM Call 2 Content

In HSH Call 2 we explored the dynamics between the ruler of the IC (the 4th house cusp) and the Moon. So revealing. In many cases they are not aligned by element or modality, or aspect. Understanding the diverse needs via the horoscope allows us to connect with our true core values, even if they seem to contrast one another. When we love ourselves via both moon and IC, the inner romance is genuine, we feel nurtured and energy flows. Deliberate creation success skyrockets too! If you want to explore your chart in this way, or talk about PLANETS in the 4th HOUSE, post your thoughts below.

Homework for HSH Call 2

Our next step in exploring self-love for the soul is to look at transits to the 4th house. I know a few of you with Capricorn on the cusp of the 4th, for example, will have Saturn transiting there for the next 2.5 years following Pluto who has been there much longer. Scorpio IC means a Jupiter transit to the 4th. Pisces means Neptune will transit there, Aries/Taurus means Uranus. If you have an Aquarius IC then the recent eclipses have been in your 4th house.

We will also look at transits to the moon and the position of the progressed moon. 

If you aren't sure what transits and progressions are, watch these video tutorials - Transits part 1 & Transits part 2.

Home Sweet Home - Self-Love for the Soul

Self-Love for the Soul

Finding the best way to bring love to the soul often isn't through our Ascendant sign, or MC, or even the 7th house of 'others'. It rises up around the core values of the IC and the 4th house. This is also called the "I don't see". A place where we like to retreat to for safety and comfort. Now, if that place is ruled by Mars or Uranus, it will be a different kind of sanctuary to one ruled by the moon or Venus.

Remember, the 4th house on an OUTER level is the home. On an INNER level, it's the soul.

It also represents a parent (the hidden parent?) family (tribe), lineage, real estate agents, home, family, ancestors, emotional ground. Hidden processes, drives. These are NOT the things we show in our "shop window" the Ascendant, or our Public Identity (the MC).

To check into this brand of self-love, think about the sign on your IC. Your 4th house cusp. What would make that sign, and it's ruling planets smile. Ahh.....

Self-Love for the Soul by Sign and Decan

Let's continue the discussion by looking at each of our charts to explore self-love for the IC and also for the Moon. Do they align? Contrast?

To take the Astrology deeper, let's look at the degree of the IC and the Moon by Decan. What ruling planet is added, or simply emphasized?

Brush up on decans here. Let's talk about this deeper detail in terms of self-Love.

For more self-love alignment, and help with self-talk, this short post by Jeannette is perfect: Self-Love Alignment Spell

Try saying "I love that about me!" next time you feel embarrassment, shame or self-judgment.

Perhaps the reason this little sentence works so well is because it returns us to our truth – that we are complete, whole and perfect just as we are.

In the comments

Pop your thoughts in the comments. I'll give it a go with my high contrast Scorpio IC and Aquarius Moon. I think Jeannette asked about Scorp on the call, and we didn't get to it. (haha, my unconscious avoidance of my own I don't see?)


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.

TIMES for the January 31st/February 1st Eclipse

LA – Wednesday – 5.26 am
NY. – Wednesday – 8.26 am
LON – Wednesday – 1.26 pm
SYD – Thursday – 12.26 am

TIMES for the February 15th/16th Eclipse

February 15/16 is the (New Moon) Partial Solar Eclipse @27 Aquarius. This is a powerhouse time to start new projects, especially in in the area of life ruled by the house activated (see how to find that below).

LA – Thursday – 1.06 pm
NY - Thursday – 4.06 pm
LON – Thursday – 9.06 pm
SYD – Friday – 8.06 am

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.

* A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.[1] The technical name is the perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system or more simply full (or new) Moon at perigee.[a]  - Read More....

Mercury & Self-Talk

LovingThoughtsbyNicole_Wong
Loving Thoughts by Nicole Wong

Hi Everyone,

Anyone with Mercury as 12th house ruler, or Mercury in aspect to an outer planet, Mercury square to Ascendant, MC or planets - heck - anyone with a Mercury, may experience challenges improving their self-talk. Mostly, it's about changing a habit pattern, one that rises up when we aren't being kind, generous or loving to our SELF. The vibe that self-talk creates comes back to us, over years or even lifetimes. Changing our self-talk to thoughts of love, kindness and encouragement will change our lives. No questions asked!

As Jeannette Maw says, “The universe can only be as good to you as you are to yourself,” and face it, we aren’t always that self supportive.

What to do?

Think about your self-talk when you look in the mirror.

Are you your own best cheering squad, or do you list the faults and things that need to be ‘fixed’? What about at work? In your creativity? Your daily routine?In relationship to others?

When you lay awake at night, are you thinking of the things that went right or ‘wrong’?

Most of us are in the habit of self judgment, criticism and denigration. Just imagine what signal that sends to the universe? It’s a spell that conjures more of what we don’t want.

But there are ways to turn those harsh self judgments around, and this post is dedicated to exploring, discussing and practicing them.

Awareness

The first step is becoming aware when we get snarky with ourselves. That's all. Note it. Don't judge it. Find a way to smile and say, "There you are." It's catch and release. With. Love.

This is Brad Yates, a wonderful EFT wizard and booster of all things positive, creative and carefree. This recording is free on his website. If you want to explore EFT, he's your guy. To download onto your iPod, computer or phone, go here.

Worthiness Magic

This is one of Jeannette's tips and it really is magic.

Get a little notepad and on the first page write, I am worthy . . . write it a few times, just to get in the head space. Then go with some specifics. It might look like this:

I am worthy  . . .
I am worthy of love . . .
I am worthy of closeness . . .
I am worthy of connection. . .
I am worthy of happiness . . .
I am worthy of my family . . .
I am worthy of my power . . .
I am worthy of success . . .
I am worthy of my place in the world . . .

I am worthy . . .

Do the exercise once a day or as you feel to, and watch things shift.

Mirror Magic
