Can You Feel The Love? Full Moon Lunar Eclipse ~ August 7th, 2017

aquarius-zodiacsign-ink

August 7, 2017 = 8+7+2+1+7=9 Endings/Release

The universe is clearly orchestrating change. The recent New Moon in Leo on July 23rd initiated the change by giving us the courage of the lion to stand up and be seen. This was Leo’s first call to be courageous and to step into our authentic self. Change takes courage. Leo helps move us toward our heart’s desires.

Now comes the Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse on August 7th in Aquarius. The energy of eclipses is long-lasting. Changes we make now will have a lingering impact. The Full Moon of Aquarius asks us to release what isn’t working for the collective.

The Sun shines in Leo and wants to be seen. It’s creative. It’s love. It’s heart. Combine this with Aquarian humanitarian energy and we’re called to act in love for the collective. We’re asked to move forward in not thinking just of our selves, but of all of mankind and the collective soul.

Aquarian Air energy fuels the Fire energy of Leo. A wondrous combination for positive change. Mars is right there with the Sun and very comfortable in Leo. Mars stokes the fire, begging us to take action. Look to where Leo and Aquarius fall in your chart to best see where you can make positive change.

Maybe your 1st and 7th houses of self and relationships are activated. Where can you make changes in your relationships? What’s best for the group? Or maybe it activates your 3rd and 9th houses and it’s about communicating a message to the collective. Wherever the area of life, Leo is giving you the courage to be heard.

On August 21st, we experience the Great American Eclipse in the United States with yet a second New Moon in Leo and more long-lasting eclipse energy. The Lion calls again.

 

Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things

~  Elton John, The Lion King

Aries New Moon March 27, 2017

Happy New Year!

Astrologically speaking, the new year begins in Aries on March 20th with the Spring Equinox. So, if your New Year’s resolutions fell flat, The Ram helps push us forward with the new moon on the 27th  and take ACTION!

Where can we take action in personal growth? How can Aries assist?

Robert Wang’s “The Jungian Tarot”

  1. How does the energy of Aries assist us?  Aries is the initiator. The 2 of Cups in Reverse asks that we take control of our emotions. Take a look at partnerships or any relationships  that are less than desirable.What relationships are unfulfilling? Where are we lacking emotionally? Aries wants us to do something about it.
  2. How do we do this? The 4 of Wands in Reverse assists us by lighting a fire, forcing us us to take action. The fiery energy of Aries gives us motivation to stand up. If we don’t expend this energy, the fire will internalize and we’ll burn out. Aries demands release; to take action. Mars, Aries ruler, gives us  the strength to power through.
  3. How can I be courageous?  Mars, The God Of War, shows us how to be a leader. The Emperor in Reverse asks us to stand up. Wherever we have remained quiet, Mars wants us to come forward and  speak up; be a leader. This energy enables us to find the courage to stand up for ourselves, for what is right and good.
  4. How can this new moon in Aries help me grow? The Lovers in Reverse wants us to took at the relationship we have with ourselves. How can we have good relationships with others, whether personal or professional or within our families, if we’re not feeling good on the inside. What negative thinking can we release?
  5. How does Aries help us with personal growth? The Wheel of Fortune in Reverse tells us that now is the time to look after ourselves. We’ve expended a lot of energy taking care of others. It’s our time now. Focus on self-care.

It’s interesting to note that all of these cards are in reverse, indicating an overall theme to look within and focus on self; the “I AM” energy of Aries.

Spring Forward!

Pisces New Moon–Spiritual Growth

 

 Spiritual Growth!

What an exciting time! New moons are always an opportunity to release what’s not working for us, what holds us back and keeps us down. Not only do we have a New Moon Februay 26, 2017 in Pisces but it also follows a Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

So let’s start with the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks the sun and dims the sun’s light. The energy of the sun (our conscious) is temporarily blocked, revealing our subconscious (moon) energy. This Solar Eclipse in Pisces offers an opportunity to examine emotions and feelings that run deep. It can be scary diving into the unknown, but we can’t grow unless we face our fears and insecurities. This Pisces Solar Eclipse can help reveal anything below the surface that prevents us from flowing in our authentic rhythym.

NEW MOON IN PISCES—Now that we’ve visited our subconscious , we can leave all that murky dark part of ourselves behind and move forward with spiritual growth aided by the new moon energy of Pisces on the 26th. We may find ourselves changing what we thought we wanted, our spiritual beliefs, or what we thought we knew. At the least, we may find ourselves open to other viewpoints. More and more of the big picture is revealed.

What can we leave behind? How can this new moon in Pisces propel us forward into oneness? Let’s look at the Tarot for collective insight.

How Can The Energy of Pisces Increase Our Awareness?                               

Through the energy of the Tower, Pisces asks us to look at the core of our being. Where are we vulnerable? What weaknesses, negative behaviors, pain, animosities are we holding onto that cracks our foundation? We have to expose anything  below the surface, our weaknesses or shadow self, before we can expect to stand firm and grow. Ultimately, the energy of the Tower serves to purify by removing the old in order to build something new.

What Growth Can We Expect?                                                                       

With the Page of Swords, growth comes in looking at things with a new perspective. When viewing things from higher ground, we can see the whole picture instead of what is right in front of us. This energy allows us to to see that what we once thought might not have been true or the only truth. The caterpillar is in fact a beautiful butterfly.

What Can We Release?                                                                       

The Moon in reverse asks us to look deep within and embrace anything negative or self defeating hidden away in our subconscious. Expect heightened psychic and intuitive abilities with the New Moon in Pisces (note the Pisces symbol in the card). The awareness the energy of the Moon brings can help illuminate what we need to release. What can be felt can’t always be seen. The Pisces New Moon helps reveal what needs to be released.

How Can Neptune Navigate Us During This New Moon Cycle?          

Neptune, the ruler of Pisces show us spiritual enlightenment but can also bring confusion and disillusionment. While the air surrounding the Alchemist is charged with a sensation of risk and/or discovery, the Alchemist reminds us to balance, refine and transform our spiritual development. The Alchemist knows that risk also carries the promise of possibility. We can be struck down or we can receive a flash of wisdom. The Alchemist reminds us to find the right combination for balance.

Advice From The Universe?                                                 

The Queen of Pentacles in Reverse reminds us that this new moon cycle is a time for self-growth. We are asked to look within. What can we release within ourselves to move forward with our own spiritual growth? While growth may come slow and appear dormant, growth is steady and long lasting. We are on a new path toward collective enlightenment. Growth begins with us.

Solar and Lunar Eclipses-What are the differences? We’ve got two in February along with a special offer.

February 2017 brings two eclipses–a lunar eclipse on February 10th and a solar eclipse on February 26th. What do they mean?

Lunar Eclipses can only happen with a full moon. The moon appears slightly orange or red as the earth passes between the moon and the sun and obscures all or part of the moon. While the affects of both eclipses can last for months, lunar eclipses tend to be softer and happen at night.

Lunar eclipses are a good time to let go of the past. Let go of any old fears, habits, feelings or negative situations that hold us back. It’s a time to move forward. February brings us this opportunity on the 10th with the full moon.

Solar eclipses occur during the day at the time of a new moon. This new moon passes between the earth and the sun, blocking all or part of the sun. Solar eclipses give us an opportunity to take care of unfinished personal business and really get honest with ourselves. With the new moon solar eclipse, it’s a time to plant seeds for the future.

While both eclipses can spur major personal growth that may linger for as long as six months, solar eclipses tend to be more intense with long lasting effects.

February Lunar & Solar Eclipse Reading

Book a Lunar and Solar Eclipse Reading before February 8th for $10. Receive a PDF file of the energies present during these eclipses, what to release and what to embrace; how to spur personal growth. This offer consists of two separate readings–one for the Lunar Eclipse and one for the Solar Eclipse. To book, request offer through email: twosistertarot@gmail.com

New Moon in Capricorn December 29, 2016

A new moon in Capricorn arrives just in time to set new goals and intentions for 2017. This new moon occurs on December 29, 2016 and brings with it the energies of

STABILITY.   BALANCE.   WISDOM.   AMBITION.   

But the flip side of that is Capricorn’s shadow side  which can bring the energies of

PESSIMISIM.   STUBBORNESS.   DETACHMENT.   MOODINESS.   

The key is to be aware of the duality and foster the energies to move in the direction you want to go.

Capricorn rules the 10th House governing Career and Social Status and this earthy energy of Capricorn calls us to create a new, grounded plan for the year ahead. The old Sea Goat asks us to develop procedures, apply discipline and create goals. What steps can we take to achieve these goals.

This New Moon in Capricorn Reading gives insight as to how we can harness the energy of Capricorn to embrace the energy for the period running from December 29, 2016 through January 26, 2017. What can we leave behind from 2016, what goals can we set and what energy is available to assist us in achieving these goals?

Every new year brings opportunity to set new intentions for the change we want to see in ourselves, but 2017 is different. After completing a nine year cycle with 2016, 2017 brings in a new cycle, 2+0+1+7=10=1. It’s like an extra special do over.

Take time to really think about your intentions and what you want to achieve beginning in 2017. Take advantage of the first year of a new 9 year cycle.

Hello All! I’m doing something a little different this week and posting the general readings in the same format I present my private readings. I feel the videos allow for a clearer conveyance of the tone and emotion in the message.

2016 October 17-23 Energies

Air Signs: Aquarius-Gemini-Libra

This week we may notice the energy of the Tower; a fiery energy that often clears something away to make way for something new, better. When it strikes, it’s often a shock to the system–unexpected. We may feel the foundation has crumbled. Although this event may not happen to us personally, it may affect us nonetheless.

Regardless, when we find ourselves affected by the energy of the Tower and it seems as though this cycle will never end, it may be that a lesson hasn’t been fully learned. “Round and Round” challenges us to revisit a pattern with a new perspective to overcome the cycle.

When we feel like we never get ahead and negative cycles repeat themselves over and over, remember that this time we have a bird’s eye view. Although things appear to be falling apart, we stand above the tower. We have an opportunity to learn something and do something different and better this time.

“Lend A Hand” reminds us that sometimes the only way we can get past negative things happening in our own lives or the lives of people we care about is to remove the focus from ourselves and focus on others.

Where can we be of service to others? Where is there a struggle we might help alleviate? How can we empower others and lift up their spirit without just rescuing?

Water Signs:  Pisces-Cancer-Scorpio

This week’s energy is all about relationships. The Two of Cups is in reverse. Cups represent water and the fluidity of emotions. With these cups being upside down, we need to take a look at our relationships with friends, co-workers and partners. Is there something we may have said without thinking? Did we react too quickly?

“Speak With Love” reminds us that when we allow our egos to speak carelessly, we can really stir up the emotional waters of others. We need to remember that this vibration returns to its source with a vengeance. When this energy comes up, it’s time to become aware of the effect our words have on others. Are we creating fear or peace?  We are being called this week to take a look at the impact our words have on others.

“Blessed” comes up in the protection position reminding us to be humble. Blessings are received when we surrender to God/Spirit.

Earth Signs: Taurus-Virgo-Capricorn

Earth  signs may feel a little blah as if the Sun isn’t shining for us. We may lose sight that we are all connected and part of a divine plan. Earth signs are especially sensitive to the lack of sunshine. They may even experience Seasonal Affective Disorder, becoming a little depressed when sunshine is lacking.

But, when fisherman can’t go to sea, they stay home and repair their nets. “To The Sea” in the protection position reminds us that when things don’t seem to move forward, we should go with the flow. We need to stop resisting and relax and trust in divine timing. Everything is a cycle. The Sun will shine again.

Two oracle cards wanted to come out for the Earth  Signs. “Regeneration” tells us that we are in a cycle of rebirth. We may see new opportunities or second chances appear this week. Seeds that appeared dormant may show signs of growth. This week it may become apparent to us just how illusory death and endings really are.

We are also reminded this week to “Talk to God.” Quiet the ego and listen to God/Spirit. It’s only the ego that causes problems. Stop talking to ego and talk to God. This is where you will find answers.

Fire Signs: Aries-Leo-Sagittarius

Strength may be called upon this week. We may be struggling with our persona–the self we show to the world and the Spirit of who we really are. It takes strength to put ourselves out there, be vulnerable and become comfortable with our authentic self. E.L. Cummings wrote, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

However, opportunities are born out of authenticity. “Milk And Honey” asks us to trust that our needs will be met. This energy reflects a sweet time in our life.  This only happens when we are in our authentic zone. You may experience a taste of what you want this week and find it easier to show the world who you really are.

“Seek an Expert” if you feel you’ve reached a limit of your own expertise. Now that you’re becoming more comfortable with the real you, you may need some help or guidance on how you can put this plan into action. You may be contemplating going back to school, a different career path, etc. Don’t be afraid to ask for a little advice. Seek out mentors.

Readings prepared using Robert Wang’s, “The Jungian Tarot,” Sonia Choquette’s “The Answer is Simple” oracle cards and Colette Baron-Reid’s oracle cards, “Wisdom of the Oracle.”
