New Moon in Leo July 23 2017: Let your light shine

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and happy nearly New Moon in Leo!

On Sunday July 23 2017 at 1.46am PST (adjust for your timezone) is the first of two consecutive New Moons in Leo, the second of which will be a solar eclipse on August 21.

More on the Leo solar eclipse next month but for now let's turn our attention to Sunday's lunar event.

This New Moon falls at 0 degrees of Leo.

When a cosmic event falls at 0 degrees, Soulstrology considers this to be the most powerful, fresh, undiluted quality of the sign in question.

That makes Sunday's Leo New Moon a very potent cosmic window which creates a powerful lunar cycle which is followed up by a solar eclipse in Leo at what is known as the 'critical degree' - namely the end of the sign.

Mars (action, energy, ambition but also conflict and aggression) is closely blended with this New Moon, having moved into Leo just days before.

The New Moon, alongside Mars, makes a tense square aspect to change agent Uranus in Aries, making this an innovative, game changer of a New Moon.

With two consecutive New Moons in Leo, one of which is an eclipse, each of us are being asked to think carefully about the Leo ruled parts of our charts (house (s) and any planets and the life themes these govern) and to focus on what we wish to create.

As always we must think about the natural zodiac themes of Leo and how we can infuse these energies into our lives and manifest in the Leo ruled areas of life.

In the natural zodiac Leo is the ruler of the 5th house.

This house governs love/romance, dating, self-expression, creativity, hobbies, fun and children - whether yours (or ones you wish to have) others, or your inner child.

Soulstrology says that this New Moon is asking each of us to not only connect to our inner light but also to allow it to shine externally.

On this spiritual path we are asked to connect to the light of any situation, to find the blessing in the curse, the silver lining in the cloud, the glimmer of light in the darkness.

In order to connect to the light in any given situation we are asked to first connect to the light within in order to then infuse it into the situation at hand.

However, we often forget on this spiritual path to let our unique light shine brightly.

To own our unique creativity, express ourselves fully and to bask in the glory of the spotlight that was meant for our soul.

We can feel uncomfortable about this, as though by doing so we are being arrogant and/or self centered and ultimately egotistic.

But there is no reward in false humility or low self-esteem, or playing small so as not to ruffle too many feathers or because we don't want to be too pushy or heaven forbid, truly confident.

This too is ego, just with a different wrapping.

Often on this spiritual path we are asked to look at our shadows but as a result we tend to forget to look at our light.

We can be too serious in our spiritual path and forget that being joyful is the ultimate spiritual goal.

Yes, we may encounter bumps on the road and hardships but ultimately we are meant to travel through our lives with a sense of happiness and lightness.

Soulstrology says the purpose of our existence is not only to transform any darkness into light but also to allow our unique light to shine brightly and to have fun doing so!

When you look at any Leos in your life you may see the common traits that sum up this sign.

Leo is ruled by the Sun and just as the sun shines bright so too is there a sunny disposition about most Leos.

They are usually very generous, playful, fun, loving, have huge hearts and love being the center of attention!

Their childlike joy and enthusiasm is what makes them so charismatic and it is contagious!

We could all do with learning from the Leos in our lives.

We could all benefit with infusing the positive traits of Leo and the light of this sign into the life areas highlighted (in our solar, natal chart and the natural zodiac) at Sunday's potent lunar event.

With Mars closely conjunct this New Moon we can harness the leadership, passion, energy and ambition of the fiery red planet to kick start a sweet new beginning in the Leo ruled areas of our lives.

With Uranus making a strong aspect to this New Moon (and Mars) we can expect that our efforts will be rewarded with the freedom that comes from making much needed changes.

At this New Moon unshackle yourself from any false narratives, false spiritual premises or limiting beliefs that cause you to dim your light and know that you allowing your light to shine is what the cosmos is asking of you.

Take steps over the next lunation to infuse lightness and joy into all areas of life, to be sunny and joyful.

Allow yourself to shine brightly knowing that in doing so you are not only fulfilling your soul's purpose but also inspiring others to do the same.

Let your light shine so bright that it illuminates the path for the next stage of your soul's journey.

Mantra of the month: I joyfully embrace my unique light and allow myself to shine brightly in the spotlight destined for my soul.

I am wishing you all a sunny, joyful, light infused New Moon.

May each of us shine brightly this next month and may our light illuminate our world.

Happy New Moon!

Love,

Full Moon in Capricorn July 8 2017: Rebirth: Every end is a new beginning

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and happy nearly Full Moon in Capricorn!

This Full Moon falls at 17 degrees of the earth sign Capricorn and takes place at 8.06pm PST on Saturday 8th July 2017 (adjust for your timezone).

The Capricorn ruled areas of each of our lives has been subjected to a powerful Pluto transit since 2008 when the planet of power, destruction, transformation and rebirth entered into Capricorn.

With Pluto (power, destruction, transformation, rebirth) at only one degree away from the moon it is likely that this Full Moon will be emotionally intense, perhaps more so than usual, as Pluto dives deep underneath the surface to uncover hidden emotions and issues.

Mars (energy, ambition, drive but also war, conflict, aggression) is dancing alongside the Sun in Cancer opposing Pluto and the Full Moon adding to the intensity.

Soulstrology says that this is one of the most challenging Full Moons of the year yet it has the ability to be a great catalyst for alchemy.

In the natural zodiac, Capricorn is the ruler of the tenth house, governing ambition, our careers, success and status.

Success and status means different things to people so whilst this house is traditionally associated with our careers, Soulstrology says it is ultimately about our soul's greatest legacy in this lifetime (which isn't necessarily about traditional 'success' or career achievements)

With the Sun in Cancer (ruling our domestic life, family and home) opposing the moon in Capricorn, regardless of our zodiac sign Soulstrology says that each of us need to think carefully about these two opposing areas of life which are highlighted in the natural zodiac at this Full Moon.

If you know your chart (please be patient with me, my new chart calculator is coming in the next few months and in the meantime you can cast one for free fairly easily online!) then you can find out which houses (and therefore life areas) are ruled by Capricorn in the natural zodiac as well as see if you have any planets in Capricorn.

This will tell you the life areas which have been subjected to Pluto's powerful transit since 2008 and which are highlighted by the lunar spotlight at this Full Moon.

Turning now to this Full Moon and how best Soulstrology suggests each of us can work with the lunar energies, regardless of our zodiac sign.

The Soulstrology theme for this Full Moon is transformation and rebirth with a focus on the energies of new beginnings which result from endings.

Since 2008 and Pluto's transit of Capricorn each of us will have experienced great changes in what we consider success and status to be, as a result impacting upon our careers and goals.

Similarly we would each have felt the impact of this upon our domestic lives, who, what and where we consider home and family.

Added to this the two houses (and therefore life areas) ruled by Capricorn and Cancer in our unique natal charts (as well as any planets) have experienced the Pluto themes of creative destruction, transformation and rebirth.

We are just over halfway through this intense Pluto transit which ends in 2024.

With this Full Moon so closely blended with Pluto and with the opposition of Mars and the Sun we are each being asked to answer the following questions which are like a Plutonic cosmic call to action.

What do we need to accept is decaying and needs to die?

What chapters of our lives do we need to firmly turn the page on so that we can start fresh ones?

How can we be soulfully powerful in the face of the winds of change by surrendering rather than trying to control and/or force the outcome?

Where are we experiencing power struggles, either with ourselves, the universe, and/or others and how can we transform these to be truly powerful by not engaging in such low vibrational energies?

How can we channel our emotions (whatever they are - 'negative' or 'positive') as a constructive catalyst for change?

What goals do we need to let go of or adapt with graceful acceptance that they may not be manifesting because they are either not truly in our best interests and/or aligned with our true soul purpose?

How can we infuse our career ambitions with soulful consciousness of how us achieving our goals can also assist others/help the world at large?

How can we transform our desires for external power into a desire for internal power over our consciousness, knowing that in truth, this is the only real power?

What 'death' or ending can we embrace knowing that every act of creation is at first an act of destruction?

These are all the questions we need to ask ourselves at this Full Moon and answer with honesty.

The kind of deep, delving underneath the surface honesty that can be difficult and/or embarrassing to deal with but is ultimately so powerful and transformative.

With Pluto (destruction, control) conjoining the Moon (emotions) it is likely that our seemingly 'negative' emotions will prove a useful guide to what is going on underneath the surface in our psyche and how best we need to transform that (see my New Moon in Cancer blog post for tips on emotions).

With Mars (anger, conflict) joining with the Sun (consciousness, desire) it is possible that we or others may feel deep anger and/or get entangled into conflict.

Whatever comes up at this Full Moon for you personally is showing you what needs to die, end, transform so there can be a rebirth or a new beginning.

Many of us would have felt the emotional intensity of Cancer season and it will hit a peak at this Full Moon.

Some people will be experiencing somewhat painful endings at this time.

Others transformation and rebirths.

Some will enjoy new beginnings.

What we experience depends on which stage of the Pluto in Capricorn transit each of us finds ourselves but we must all be striving for the transformation that allows for rebirth and new beginnings.

Soulstrology says that the only thing that is constant is change.

Those of us who can be adaptable to change and surrender to the universe, seeking to work on the internal, rather than trying to control the external, will ultimately prevail with soulful success and the sweet taste of new beginnings.

Mantra of the Full Moon: I embrace all change and endings, even those I find painful, trusting that ultimately all is unfolding for my highest good.

I wish for each of you what I wish for myself, the courage to change, the grace to surrender to the unknown and the faith to fuel our continued journeys of alchemy.

Wishing you a peaceful, transformative and soulfully powerful Full Moon.

Love,

July 2017: Courage, dear heart.

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and welcome to July 2017!

With the Sun in watery emotional Cancer for most of July the cosmos will be encouraging each of us to feel all the feels this month.

Feeling (and I mean truly feeling) all the feels can be challenging.

It's great to feel all the feels when everything is peachy perfect but not so much when life is more full of thorns than roses.

But feeling is healing.

And feeling allows us to truly heal.

When we heal and release that which does not serve us we create space to receive what we both desire and deserve.

Truly feeling is therefore one of the most powerful methods of alchemy.

But it takes courage to truly allow ourselves to feel the full spectrum of our emotions and to process them.

In Cancer season we must be wary of either withdrawing into our shells, drowning in our emotions, or scuttling from side to side and never really facing what we need to.

Instead we need to be courageous and trust that by honouring our feelings we can use them as not only as a catalyst for alchemy but also as a guide or map of sorts.

If you haven't already read the New Moon Cancer blog then I suggest you do so as it gives some tips as to how best to deal with low vibrational and/or
'negative' feelings and to understand the desires which often lie beneath these emotions.

Whatever your emotional status is this month (and for many it may well be fantastic!) listen carefully to your feelings as they echo the whisper of your soul so if you honour them you can be guided to the next stage of your journey.

It takes courage to feel, to listen, and to act.

This month we all must be bold and do all of the above in order to benefit from the cosmos.

The key cosmic dates for your diary are below and as usual I will post detailed blogs for the New and Full Moon.
