Neptune Moves Ahead--Yeh!



Photo: Charles Pfeil

For far too long Transiting Neptune in Aquarius has been opposing my Natal Venus in Leo. Neptune has retrograded back and forth within several degrees of orb in this ongoing opposition, and trust me, this transit has challenged me. At this point in time, the 'con' seems to have been more highlighted than the 'pro'. Perhaps with hindsight, I will perceive more of the 'pro', but right now I'm celebrating that this difficult transit will begin to finalize. It won't be until March 2008 that Neptune will be at least three degrees out of orb from opposition to my Venus which is the basic minimum orb for signs of relief.

During this same time period, Transiting Neptune has been going back and forth on top of my partner's Sun which has also had both positive and negative effects. All in all, Neptune has been doing a double whammy on our family.

So today I'm celebrating Neptune turning direct. Halloween is a minor holiday by comparison.

Happy Full Blood Moon

Ok. I'll come right out with it. Even though this current Full Moon was/is Perigee (closest to Earth) right now and supposed to appear Giant In The Sky, to my perception it's the same size as always. I've asked other Maui folk if the Full Moon seemed bigger to them than normal, and they all said no. Perhaps our location is the reason why the Full Moon seems the same size as every other Full Moon? Above is a photo I took of the Moon this morning.

What I can attest to is the extraordinary power of the Moonlight Crystal I ordered several weeks ago which has been infused with the intensely concentrated moonlight reflected by the Interstellar Light Collector in Tuscon, Arizona. Click here to read about their research.

This Full Moon in Taurus is sometimes called the Blood Moon or the Hunter's Moon.

"The moon, the moon, so silver and cold, Her fickle temper has oft been told, Now shade--now bright and sunny-- But of all the lunar things that change, The one that shows most fickle and strange, And takes the most eccentric range, Is the moon--so called--of honey!" Thomas Hood

The California Fires---Why?

Photo: Terragalleria

Being the inveterate all-across-the-board investigative type, I've been listening-to and reading the theories and speculations about what is causing these horrendous California fires.

I watched a special on 60-Minutes this Sunday on tv, and many fire and climatology experts assess that just the one degree increase in climate temperature has allowed such fires to take place. Their theory sounded very reasonable to me.

I listened to the controversial astrologer Dr. Turi on Coast To Coast last evening, and he suggested that "terroism" was involved.

I've read many astute astrologers who are featured on Elsa Elsa's Top Ten Sources and each one of these posts made by these excellent astrologers make good points.

From
The Astrologer I discovered the link to astrometerologist Carolyn Egan who had predicted the windy condtions in California in her Fall 2007 Forecast.

I read on Rumor Mill News the theory that a caldera stretches all the way from Santa Barbara down to San Diego and that embers from this caldera combined with Santa Ana winds had started this firestorm in Southern California.

Whatever the reasons for these fires, my heart goes out to all the evacuated people living in fear, suspense, and concern about their futures.

A mass migration is well underway. Where are all these people going to go to rebuild their lives and start over again? Will there be enough temporary housing to accommodate them until rebuilding begins? What about the frail and elderly--who is going to take them in? What about the pay-outs by the insurance companies---will they be as slow as molasses as in the Katrina disaster? Is California going to continue having fires such as this as suggested on the 60-Minutes show?

These are just a few of the many, many questions racing through my mind as I reflect upon the devastation in California.

"The first light of day today revealed what we had feared. The devastation is greater than our worst fears. It's just totally overwhelming." Kathleen Blanco

Saturn In Virgo--Oh Bruddah!

Photo: Charles Pfeil

Ever since the entry of Saturn into Virgo (my Sun Sign), I've been consumed/beset with health issues and health research. I've signed up for even more alternative health newsletters. I've dealt with doctors and a medical intuitive. I've discovered much more about health and well-being. I've reverted to an eating plan which was devised for me many years ago by a nutritionist who determined which foods are the best of me....and which ones I should avoid. My diet has become quite spartan. I plan to resume my old exercise routine once I'm able again. My lifestyle has dramatically changed. Saturn is slapping me around, awakening me, and pushing me to a whole new level of health and well-being. If I don't listen to Saturn now, I get-it that the transit of Saturn through Virgo will only be harsher yet. Since I'm a wuss when it comes to pain, I've been paying great attention to this Saturn lesson.

I'm just now on the tail-end of a health crisis which began about a month ago. According to my holistic doctor and the well-known medical intuitive who scanned me, I "inhaled" something on my recent journey to the mainland which pushed my immune system over the edge. Whether it was a virus or something else, the blessings from this illness has been an increase in my health knowledge, appreciation for well-being, and a greater respect for the taskmaster Saturn.

Blog Your Blessings Sunday


The past two weeks have presented health issues to me, and I'm not kidding when I say it's been rough. I've not blogged for the most part as my attention and focus has been on getting well and discovering what provoked me to get out of balance.

I'm very greatful for my partner who has picked up the slack with grocery shopping, errands, etc, and for my daughter who has also lent a much-needed hand in many areas while I've been down.

I'm also greatful for my wise, informed friends who have weighed-in with their wisdom and healing. I'm grateful for my alternative doctors and the Medical Intuitive who assisted me through my discomfort and illuminated how I had been laid low. Have I ever learned a lot about so many things!!!! The information they have shared with me has been priceless.

I'm grateful for the healing products, services, my angels and guides who have led me to a deeper place and expanded consciousness than I have been in a long, long time. Together all of those mentioned have contributed to the re-examination of my life and what I choose to do with it. I'm still very weak, but I'm on the comeback trail. I feel so blessed to have survived.

Libra New Moon

Photo: Charles Pfeil

It's been one of my habits for many years now to write down my intentions at the New Moon. Depending upon the Moon, the house where the New Moon lies and its aspects, I tailor my written intentions to fit. For instance, this New Moon in Libra falls in my 7th House of Relationships, an easy fit since the sign of Libra is all about relationships. Thus, this lunar month I will focus on improving all my relationships, learning more about relationships, etc., and all my intentions will synch up with this Libra New Moon.

You can do the same thing. Happy New Moon Intending!

"The moving moon went up to the sky,
And nowhere did abide;
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside.
"

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Laughter As Antidote


The funniest spam email I've received in a long, long time came this week to us. This is what it said:

"Three houses in your neighborhood have had high amounts of spiritual activity. Our instruments show strange energy radiating directly from your home.

Please dont wait until it is too late!"

It was from an organization called Ghost Control.

And this email leads me into my BYB Sunday Blessings in which I participate along with many other beautiful bloggers: I'm blessed I have a good sense of humor and Great Spirit rewards me with so many reasons to laugh every day in every way. Everywhere I turn there is more evidence of joy to balance the horrors read about in the news.

I'm grateful for the increasing balance and forward momentum in LIGHT, LOVE, and GOODNESS in the world. I know there are still way too many pockets of mis-qualified energy on this planet such as the rape epidemic in the Congo--a horror story!

Were it not for my ability to laugh, I could become dysfunctional and embittered by the miseries in the world. So I've extremely grateful for laughter and joy.

How Beautiful The Moon!

While dealing with VERY LOW energy I suspect from a flu bug and attempting to lay low while Transiting Mars is applying to a conjunction with my Natal Mars (and thus to avoid even more accidents), I Stumbled across this stunning photo of the Moon in high resolution. Click here for a beautiful high resolution photo of our Moon.

When I don't feel quite good enough to blog, I often Stumble. Are you a Stumbler too?

"Soon as the evening shades prevail,
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
And nightly to the listening earth
Repeats the story of her birth." Joseph Addison

My Martian Wake-Up Call



Photo: Charles Pfeil

Transiting Mars is now applying to my natal Mars--my Mars Return--which I've written about before in a prior post. And OUCH--am I ever getting a dose of this applying Mars!

Like many other astrologers, I feel an applying aspect is stronger and more significant than a separating aspect because the applying aspect offers a more pressing challenge for the person than a waning aspect which isn't as critical, more of a waning issue in a person's life.

So I'm just a couple of degrees away now, and here's what has already happened to me:

I pinched a nerve in my back or inflammed a muscle group by doing too many crunches which resulted in me needing serious inflammation help from my masseuse and various other modalities like EFT, creams, etc. This pain lasted several days, and it's now (mostly) gone, but hey, this pain was a bitch! I'm so grateful for my masseuse with her loving hands, the hot rocks, pain meds, and EFT!

So today I'm hanging something on the wall (high up), and after successfully hanging it, I didn't compute the leg room to move back down, and I took a fall and landed on my hip. That's when the bells when off, and I told myself, "Ok, get it! Leave off the physical stuff for the time being! Just leave it alone until Mars has separated from this Mars Return! Wake up!" So I woke-up and am going to be a lazy girl until at least the 7th of October. I have a very good alibi, don't you think?
