It’s A Solar Eclipse/New Moon In Pisces – With A Message For The Week Ahead

Happy Sunday My Friends,

We may our find ourselves shaking our heads in disbelief over the upcoming weeks, and we have likely felt this way for the past several weeks.  We have been under eclipse influence for quite a bit- and believe me, it affects everyone!  The energy is intense!  Expect the unexpected now more than ever.  The universe will be throwing us all some cosmic curveballs!

This Solar Eclipse /New Moon today falls in the sign of Pisces, the psychic dreamer.   Pisces is all about the inner world and spirituality, our intuition and our hopes and fears. There is a lot of intensity at this time, so expect the unexpected.  As this Solar Eclipse is about the inner world being shaken up, don’t necasarily expect a huge epiphany in your outer world although that can happen as well.  It can be subtle internally, but you can expect some massive shifts to follow.  Remember- our higher self, our guides and our angels only want us to grow and move towards our soul purpose so when we resist growth and change, the universe will typically step in and show us who’s boss. Also remember that there is always divine order to the madness so stay positive!

   I’ve done an Angel Tarot card for the week ahead, with a message for all

IMG_1222

Isn’t that a beautiful looking card?  This card is from the Doreen Virtue Guardian Angel Tarot- currently my deck of choice.  This card is number “0”- in traditional tarot this is knows as The Fool.  

As this card is a Major Arcana card, expect some karmic situations to either release and close themselves out this week, or karmic rebounds can and will occur! Something/someone from the past will come back out of the blue and zap you back to a place that you long had forgotten- so you thought!  The universe has other plans for you, and it’s time to learn the lesson and close the chapter once and for all. You cannot move forward if you keep on looking backwards is the message for this week.  Again, I’m sorry to be a broken record but expect the unexpected at this time.  The Fool is also ruled by the planet Uranus, which is all about unexpected change that catapults us to a different place!  We might not end up where we want to be- but rest assured, it’s where we need to be.  This card is oh-so-fitting for the time of a Solar Eclipse right?

It is a time for beautiful beginnings as we release what no longer serves us. Remember- this can be at the soul level so perhaps it’s an addiction that you have or a behavior you wish to release.  Let it all go- it’s time.

Keep going full steam ahead with your plans, and know that the universe is truly supporting new beginnings and new adventures.  This beginning may even feel forced upon some, but necessary at the same time.  Keep your sense of humor.  Stay in your light.  Most importantly- remember that we are in some very sensitive times energetically, and if you are particularly empathic, you will be feeling a lot of anxiety as you are picking up the energy of the collective.  Make sure you are taking good care of yourself.

Don’t forget to set your intentions and manifest under this powerful Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Pisces!

Happy Pisces Season!

Pisces season is from 2/19-3/20

As of yesterday 2/19,  the Sun officially left it’s perch in the sign of curious and detached Aquarius, and entered the sign of the dreamy and sensitive Pisces.  We go from the mental plane to the emotional plane with this shift as we leave the element of Air (mental) and shift into the element of Water (emotional).

As Pisces is the 12th and final sign in the zodiac wheel, it marks the end of a cycle- right before the spring equinox.   We wrap up loose ends and release that which no longer serves us and our growth during this time.  We set expectations and lay down plans for the upcoming cycle.  Expect to feel more emotional and ready for change.

Pisces is a Water Sign and as such, people born under the time of Pisces are typically quite sensitive and impressionable.  (This also holds true for those that are Pisces rising, and/or Pisces Moon.)  Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac and are typically quite artistic and intuitive, empathetic and compassionate, tender hearted and super-sensitive. Very spiritual and truly wanting to make the world a better place.   These are all positive Piscean traits.

The less positive side of Pisces is the tendency to escape reality when the going gets tough, addictive tendencies towards destructive habits (alcohol/drugs), and not seeing the forest through the trees!  Pisces can be very overly sensitive and extremely indecisive. 

Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, which is the planet of illusion and boundaries and rules the 12th house of the subconscious in ones birth chart. Pisces can often see things/people/situations through the lens of rose colored glasses, and when they come down to reality it’s often very hurtful.  Pisces are also romantic and love-love.  (If you are a Pisces and you feel a lot of this does not describe you, that’s because you must take into account your rising sign and moon).

The Tarot Card that rules Pisces is the Moon

moon

Emotional and changeable, along with intuitive awareness and intense psychic impressions, the Moon rules Pisces.  As the moon is a little wild and unpredictable changing with the tides, so are Pisces!  Pisces can be verrryyy moody due to their extreme sensitivity.  (Trust me my Moon is in the sign of Pisces so I speak from experience). If you expect them to be happy about something, they may surprise you and burst into tears.  If you expect them to be upset about something, they may look at you and laugh uncontrollably.  That is Pisces.  (I do love Pisces energy though- most Pisces I know feel super safe and calming.)   

Some of the crystals that represent Pisces are Amethyst (which is also the birthstone for February), bloodstone, Jade, aquamarine (March birthstone) and one of my favorites, Nuumi.

During the time of Pisces AND with the fact that we have a SOLAR ECLIPSE /NEW MOON in Pisces on the 26th of this month, we can expect to feel a heightened sense of awareness along with extreme sensitivity.  This time allows us to naturally have a psychic and more compassionate view of the world.  At this time it is very important to listen to your intuition as it will be loud and trying to get your attention.  Be careful though that you do not deceive yourself in the process.  Things are not always as they seem and at this time you have to look underneath the layers of your emotions to get to the crux of what is really going on. We always know somewhere inside us what the best road to take will be, but do we listen? 

*Sidenote- as I mentioned in last weeks blog, this solar eclipse/new moon on the 26th is quite a powerful one.  It will take place at 7:10 AM EST and the energy is most intense up to eight (8) hours of the Solar Eclipse time and is very intense so when manifesting please keep your intentions as clear and pure as possible!  You may get just what you wish for and then some, so manifest wisely!  Stay in your light.

Stay strong and instead of reacting- try and understand!  Pisces is the one sign of the zodiac that can empathize with anyone, so during this time stay compassionate for yourself and for others.  We are all doing the best we can under these intense and emotionally charged times!

Let’s Talk About February And The Sensitive Times We Are In! Lunar Eclipse AND Solar Eclipse Back To Back!

Good Morning Friends,

You may or may not have noticed but I did not put out a post for the Lunar Eclipse in Leo that passed through on 2/10.  I just could not muster up the energy and the mental capacity to sit down and type out my thoughts.  In my own personal chart, this eclipse is hitting sensitive points in my 4th house (home), my North Node (life purpose) and my 10th house (career), so I have a lot of energy swirling around in these areas.  It has been a crazy couple of weeks on my end to say the least (it’s all good though)  and I have been trying to take it easier than normal (well, I think I have but I’m still not really taking it easy). 😉

Sidenote: if you are interested in looking at your personal chart and how these Eclipses may or may not impact you, reach out to me and I will give you the info of some of my favorite astrologers to work with!  I do know a LOT of astrology and am constantly learning and growing in this area, but I’m no expert!

IMG_1102

The Lunar Eclipse we experienced back on 2/10 was in the sign of bold and courageous Leo. (Photo I took to the right).  Leo has a big, passionate heart and also, a big, fiery temper!  When you get to close to the fire well-you can get burned!  That’s how this last eclipse was likely experienced for most people.  A true rollercoaster of emotion(s), a feeling that the time is ripe to GO!  But where to? That’s for your soul to guide you towards.  

If at this time you feel like you are floating through life, well this month will DEFINITELY highlight the areas that could stand some improvement.  You will not be able to avoid the clean-up this time around.  Overall you will feel VERY energetic and ready for action OR  lethargic and confused, perhaps conflicted and defeated.  These were the energies surrounding this past Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon.  Relationships of all kinds tend to really be a focus under Eclipse energy, and as it’s a very sensitive time especially in between Eclipses (where we are right now) – we should all be extra sensitive to others and to ourselves.  As issues come up, make sure to take the time to breathe before reacting. Very important as the tendency to overreact is high right now! 

new-moon-piscesc-total-solar-eclipse-300x300

Our next Eclipse happens on 2/26 in the watery and dreamy sign of Pisces.  Solar Eclipses are even more intense and more powerful than Lunar Eclipses in the way that, the Raja-Tama (which is an Indian term for state of mind) is most definitely increased during a Solar Eclipse. Long story short: I give this to you from the spiritual perspective as opposed to the scientific explanation. Scientifically speaking the Solar (Sun) Eclipse is much more impactful than the Lunar (Moon) Eclipse is.  The fact that these two are back to back like this?  Well, think about that.  Major energy storm!

From the spiritual perspective those with a very heightened “sixth-sense” will be quite prone to feeling the changes under the influence of both Eclipses and the in between time (so basically now).   You may feel edgy, anxious, uncomfortable, indecisive, lost and confused.  On the flip side you may find that you feel clarity and you are ready to take action.  If you are feeling ready to take action, I advise you to wait until at least 2/28 for astrological reasons!  You will feel more clear as the energy of the New Moon in Pisces which is a Solar Eclipse, begins to clear away after the 26th.

With this upcoming Solar Eclipse in Pisces on 2/26- most will feel extra sensitive and extra tuned in.  Your awareness and inner knowing will be amplified so this is definitely time to try and stay as clear and pure as possible.  Since Pisces is ruled by Neptune which is the planet of illusion, deception and boundaries, you will want to stay in a healthy spiritual space.  The tendency to see everything through rose colored glasses is aroused and you don’t want to hit the ground HARD when the illusions are broken.  Remember: eclipses can and often will bring in the unexpected!

Am I telling you to hide out?  No.  But I am telling you to keep a close watch on your feelings at this time and stay vigilant.  Take stock and take pride in all that you have accomplished but do not get arrogant.  Eclipses are a time of major power, and also major changes that are sometimes very unexpected and often needed.  It’s best to not get to comfortable.  Also if you or others have been actively involved in shady or less than stellar happenings, under Eclipse time it’s way more likely to come out into the light.  Again, keep your intentions and motivations as pure as possible and stay in your light and all will be well.

Let’s also be grateful that the upcoming Solar Eclipse is not happening during Mercury Retrograde- silver lining! 😉 macaulay

*It is also important to note that Eclipses operate much differently than the average Full/New Moons,  therefore it is wise to not partake in any manifestations.  I  do not charge my crystals under this moon energy either. While you certainly can, why would you want to?  The energy is crazzyy!

Are You Waking Up? A.K.A- Ascending?

Hi Friends!

As we enter the Age of Aquarius, there is a noticeable shift happening.  More and more of the collective are “waking up”- or experiencing the spiritual term for this, which is referred to as “Ascension”.   By formal definition, Ascension is: the act of rising to an important position or a higher level.  This is where we experience an awakening of the soul.  In a more descriptive way, let’s talk about the process as I am sure many of you reading this have likely begun to experience this phenomenon.

Disclaimer: make sure your physical  health is ok before you chalk anything up to ascension.  A lot of these symptoms of “waking up” can mimic medical conditions.  Make sure to get yourself checked out before you decide your symptoms are in fact , ascension related.  This is not in lieu of medical advice or attention.

ascension74_01

As I stated in the first paragraph, ascension is all about getting to a higher level.  When we ascend this is exactly what happens but on a subconscious and intuitive level. We begin to feel “weird” or “off” as our frequency changes, and we begin “tune in” to the energies around us in a much different way.  We don’t know exactly what is going on, and it can be really freaky!  You will feel a longing for a deeper purpose, you will feel connected in a way you have not experienced before.

You will begin to look at everything differently, and truly start questioning reality and your existence.  But I”m here to tell you that it is ok, and you should embrace the process as you are becoming more in tune with a higher realm.  More in touch with your higher self, your soul.

After each Reiki Attunement (certification) I have received, my vibration would rise and I would feel more connected to spirit,  and my head would buzz for days.  I would feel like I was on another planet basically, and it’s difficult to be in the the 3D “real” world.  Yes, that may sound crazy, but that’s the only way I can describe it.  When you ascend “the old way” just doesn’t feel right anymore.  My psychic impressions go off the charts, and I need to sometimes pull back and rest.  It’s exhausting!

Holy Shift

When we ascend, our senses sharpen and heighten.  Your intuitive impressions come faster and can startle you, especially if this has never happened to you before. You may have an increased sense of taste, smell or both.  Foods that you used to love you now might not be able to stomach.  Your digestive tract becomes more sensitive, you begin to have much more vivid dreams, and you become way more sensitive in general. Physical sensations can begin and make you start to question your sanity.  You may get nauseous out of nowhere, experience headaches and sporadic hot flashes followed by the shivers.  Your perception and vision will change – you will see colors, shapes and orbs that appear and disappear just as quickly.  You may also feel random pressure in your head, your sinuses, and it can shift quickly from one spot to another.

In 2010 I experienced a major bout of Ascension, and for me I would get awful migraines about once a week!  I would see flashes of light, and the headache would start. I also experienced tingling sensations in my extremities.  (This tingling still happens). Face, arms and feet.  This sent me to the doctor naturally thinking the worst, but intuitively I knew I was fine.  Your ears may pop,buzz and/or vibrate. You may see flashes and orbs out of the corners of your eyes,  smell things that aren’t there, the list goes on and on. (All of the above are what I experienced, but everyone is different).

meditando-en-la-luz

Anxiety is also a common trait of the ascension process.  Your heart may palpitate or flutter.  It may race and seem “irregular”.  Again, this is your heart chakra opening up! (Make sure you check this out to rule out anything medical first). Your scalp may itch or tingle.  Your crown chakra is opening up, getting ready to receive information from a higher source.  As all of your chakras begin to open up and expand, these physical sensations may begin and progress rapidly.  ( If it is too much for you, just ask spirit to kindly slow the process down as it’s too much at once. I do this and it works).

SO what starts the Ascension process?  Good question.  Typically, a major life change will precede a major spiritual shifting period.  You lose your job, you experience the death of someone very close to you, you yourself have a near death experience, you get divorced, move across country, etc.  You get the idea.  It does not always have to be this way, but usually it is.  When this happens you may feel all alone.  Lost, scared and/or confused, you subconsciously call on your higher self to step in and guide you.  Then you begin to ascend…..(remember , you don’t know this is happening on a three-dimensional  level!)  You begin to question and experience things on a different and deeper level.  You lose friends, you gain friends.  Some think you have gone crazy…who cares??  The S&*T has to happen in order for the shift to happen- and that’s the way it is.   Just be you and take good care of yourself.  It’s the only way!  Eat well, get more rest, honor your body and your soul.  If you find yourself wanting to be in solitude most of the time, that’s perfectly normal as well.  It’s all a part of the process and should be honored .

Your sleeping patterns and habits will likely change during this shift as well.  Perhaps you were always someone who needed a full ten-hours of sleep and yet now you can get by on four or five.  Or it could go the opposite way- where you get plenty of sleep yet you still are exhausted. Insomnia is a part of this as well.  Sounds joyful, doesn’t it ? 😉  Actually, it is pretty damn cool when you think about the fact that you are ready to go deeper towards your purpose, to journey deep into your soul.

The positives about this process feel and are great as well, once the physical symptoms pass. (Remember, not everyone will experience all or any of the physical symptoms).  The positive experiences and feelings you may experience throughout this process are as follows

-You will feel have an overwhelming feeling of just letting things be, rather than trying to force or coerce any issue or circumstance in your life

-You may find yourself smiling for no reason, and quite often

-Feeling a sense of connection with others and with nature that you might not have ever experienced before, truly understanding that everything and everyone are all connected

-Overwhelming and sporadic feelings of gratitude and appreciation

-Learning to enjoy each moment becomes a focus, being and staying present

-A total loss of interest in conflict.  You just let everyone be and want to just be as well.  A feeling of total acceptance

-A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others

-A loss of interest in judging others and a loss on interest in judging yourself

-Gaining the ability to love without expecting anything in return-unconditional love

Throughout this awakening process, stay strong and stay true- find others who share your interests and your passions.  Never lose sight of who you truly are. You are magnificent and unique, remember that!
