Full Moon in Gemini December 3 2017: Saying what you mean and meaning what you say

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and happy Full Moon in Gemini!

The last Full Moon of 2017 is a SUPER Full Moon and takes place just hours after Mercury turns officially retrograde for the last time this year....

This is a powerful cosmic combination and alongside other celestial aspects at this time makes for a very intense final Full Moon of 2017.

The Full Moon takes place on Sunday December 3rd at 7.46am PST (adjust for your timezone) at 11 degrees of Gemini (check the chart calculator on my site to see where you have 11 degrees Gemini and therefore the life areas which are being highlighted by La Luna).

Mercury, the ruler of Gemini turns retrograde hours before the Full Moon and Soulstrology says that this makes the focus of this Full Moon even more internal than usual as Mercury retrograde makes us look inward and focus on resolving internal issues so that we can not only move forward but also manifest on the physical plane.

Turning now to the specific aspects of this Full Moon.

The day before the Full Moon, Jupiter (in Scorpio) makes a beautiful harmonious aspect to Neptune (in Pisces).

This aspect is very much still in force at the time of the Full Moon and brings spiritual, creative, romantic and magical energies into play at this lunar event.

This somewhat helps balance the energy of Mercury's retrograde (which is always at its most potent on the day it stations retrograde and direct) as well as the very harsh square aspect made by Neptune (in Pisces) to the Full Moon.

A square aspect is a tense aspect which tends to bring out more of the shadow of that sign or planet and in this case Neptune is right at home in Pisces (Neptune is ruler of Pisces) and the shadow here is of deception, self-delusion, addictions and victim syndrome.

This is the energy being pinged cosmically from the Pisces ruled parts of each of our charts to both the Sagittarius ruled parts of our charts (the Sun is in Sagittarius) and the Gemini zone of our charts which hosts this Full Moon.

This aspect in addition to Mercury's retrograde motion bringing the usual muddles messages and mayhem means that events around this Full Moon may be like a mirage and not as they appear.

Soulstrology consciousness is to take everything with a pinch of salt at this Full Moon.

To try hard not to REact (one of the only RE's that is a Mercury retrograde no and is a general Soulstrology no no!) and instead to sit back and allow the cosmic clouds to pass (or at least for the Full Moon to start to wane a little) and allow for clarity.

We are each encouraged to stay clear headed at this Full Moon (think avoiding escapism and over indulging) in order to navigate it mindfully.

We are also asked to not believe everything we think at this time (because sometimes trickster Mercury can make our minds are biggest foes) and to be very careful with our words and communications (even more so than at usual Full Moons).

Which leads me nicely onto the title of this blog.

Gemini in the natural zodiac is the ruler of the third house of our mind and communication, our 'voice' in all formats.

The shadow of Gemini, which each of us can fall foul to and may be illuminated in the lunar spotlight, is to talk the talk, but not walk the talk.

It is also to gossip and even if not to outright bitch, to unnecessarily talk of others and their business.

It is to be superficial in what we say and do, with our words and actions not matching each other.

I think each of us, if we are honest, are guilty of all or a combo of the above at some point...

The Soulstrology theme of this Full Moon is for us to truly walk our talk.

To say what we mean, and to mean what we say.

I always tell people I coach and mentor that words have energy and so much power.

What we say to ourselves and others and put out into the universe is reflected back to us.

Yet so many of us are poisoning our existences each and everyday.

Ranting and bitching about someone may feel momentarily good (and perhaps even morally justified) but comes with a karmic boomerang that bitch slaps us and leaves us with a bruise and a nasty taste in our mouths!

Superficial conversations may be seemingly harmless but often stop us from experiencing the depth and richness which can come from a real conversation where we are truly focused on the person in front of us (regardless of whether we know them or they are a stranger).

What we say to ourselves daily is the most important conversation we will ever have and many of us are our own worst critic and foe.

We think bad thoughts about ourselves, our lives, the world and this energy reflects back at us!

Some of us may be overly confident, arrogant even, having a daily conversation that frankly feeds the every hungry ego but causes separation from the soul and from others, which over time results in a tough love lesson - sometimes bringing people to their knees so they can be humbled so they become humble.

And probably every single one of us often says what we do not mean and do not mean what we say.

I know I used to be (still am sometimes but I am getting SO much better at it) terrible at not meaning what I said and not saying what I meant, even though it came from a sort of good place.

Let me explain this to you further in case it helps you (I am fine with being the cosmic guinea pig, I have probably made every mistake under the sun so if it helps others for me to share, it was worth it!).

For pretty much all of my life I was a blunt Sagittarius.

I said what I meant, meant what I said but often it was mean.

Not that I meant to be mean but it just came out mean as I was more often than not brutally blunt (hey the truth often hurts and people often aren't ready to hear things but also it wasn't my place to be telling people certain things, even if they were truths!)

Then in 2008 I had my awakening and started some deep spiritual ego work and became a egg shell walking people pleaser totally overcompensating for my prior bluntness and creating a whole new set of issues to deal with.

This all happened until circa 2013.

During those years (and it still happens occasionally but I would say rarely) I would not say what I really meant to people and it would end up biting me on the arse as we say in England (or ass as you all say).

For example, I would not tell someone how I really felt, what I really wanted (or didn't want) and instead would people please in my communications which would end up displeasing me and usually end up with me having a meltdown at some point and causing friction with said person (s).

Then I would not mean what I would say.

'Yes, we should totally have lunch/dinner/get drinks'  = words.

'I like you but I have no real desire or intention to meet up again' = true thoughts/feelings.

I would also not walk my talk.

`I am going to write a book!'

Two years later. No book writing done. Or so little, it was shameful.

Lesson learned = books don't write themselves.

'I am going to get fit and healthy! I am going to stop over indulging, partying so much and being hedonistic'

Still partied. Didn't exercise. Overindulged. Wondered why I looked and felt like shit.

Lesson learned = you need to STFU and take action and stop yabbering on about what you are going to do and actually DO IT!

These are some small examples but since 2013 I have truly (for the most part, hey I am still a work in progress) said what I mean and meant what I have said.

I have also walked my talk.

I became healthy, dropped bad habits, started taking care of my health - mind, body and soul and stopped talking as much and started doing (in all areas, so for example, I knew I wanted to write as a way of helping people and expressing myself and I have done this consistently and diligently even when it hasn't been easy or I have been tired. And in case you are wondering, yes, I did write a book, but it needs editing/rewrites!)

I stopped being fake nice and making arrangements which I knew I would never keep (or would keep and not enjoy and then feel resentful) and started to be honest and ultimately kinder to myself and others at the outset.

I became accountable to myself and that's when life - after having bitch slapped and sucker punched me for almost two years straight - started to respond lovingly and magically and the blessings started to flow...

I slip now and then as my old people pleaser raises her head and sometimes my actions don't match my words but for the most part, I have changed and life has changed magically too.

Life isn't perfect.

But I am very happy and it is imperfectly perfect and I have no doubt that strengthening my personal integrity by aligning my consciousness, words and actions had a lot to do with that.

So enough about me and now turning to you.

Think carefully about all of the Gemini shadow and be honest with yourself about what shadow you may find yourself slipping into.

How often do you let the shadow of Neptune which rears its head at this Full Moon (self delusion, deception of others) impact your words and communications?

Then ask yourself the following questions.

1) Where and to whom do I not say what I truly mean and why? How does this impact me and my relationships?

2) In what areas of life am I all talk but little, or no walk? Why do I do this and what is the outcome for me?

3) How can I be more honest and soulful with myself and others in my communications?

4) Where am I deceiving myself, even in my own thoughts and conversations with myself, about a person or situation and how is this impacting my life?

5) With whom do I need to have a difficult conversation and why am I putting it off?

6) Am I and if so, how am I, superficial in a less than soulful way in my communications and how does this impact me and others?

7) How can I speak more mindfully with more consciousness so that even lighthearted, fun conversations are healthy and soulful for me and the person I am conversing with?

Answer these questions honestly and you will have the content for your burn and release list....write your list and indulge in a little burn and release ceremony (under the moonlight if you can) and watch the words burn and visualize the energy leaving you and making space for mindful magic.

Full Moon Mantra:

I observe what happens at this Full Moon rather than judging it

I choose my thoughts carefully knowing they form my reality

I respect the energy and power of words and I am mindful and soulful in what I say, to whom and when

I trust myself to think thoughts and speak words which are truthful and serve the highest good of all

I walk my talk knowing that actions speak louder than words


May each of our words align with our consciousness and our actions and may this bring us into alignment with ourselves and the cosmos and help us manifest more what truly serves our highest good and the greater good of all.

And so it is.

Wishing you all a mindful, healing and aligning Full Moon.

Love,

December 2017: Looking backwards to move forward

Ambi Sitham

Ditto!

Ditto!

Hello lovely ones and welcome to December 2017!

The last month of 2017 is set to be an intense one with Mercury already in retrograde shadow and the official retrograde starting hours before the last Full Moon of 2017 which will be a Super Full Moon at that!

Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius and Saturn is in his final stages of transiting Sagittarius as he will depart the Sagittarius zone of the zodiac on December 20th and move into Capricorn.

This Mercury retrograde will dominate the last month of the year as will the Sagittarius ruled part of each of our charts with the Sun shining brightly in Sagittarius for the first three weeks of the month.

The Saturn in Sagittarius transit started in December 2014 and apart from a few months in the summer of 2015 when Saturn retrograded back into Scorpio, Saturn has been putting each of us through the mill when it comes to the Sagittarius ruled parts of lives in our unique charts.

Use the chart calculator on this website to see which areas of life Sagittarius governs in your life to understand where this transit has played out for you in terms of life areas.

As a Sagittarius sun sign, with a total of four planets in Sagittarius, I can tell you that this transit has been extremely challenging, and not escaping the deep sorrow that Saturn often brings  (with my Dad passing away) but has also seen me mature and grow and create new strong foundations in my life.

I am grateful for the lessons and the blessings but also ready to wave Saturn goodbye for another 28 years!

Turning now to the title of this blog and the Soulstrology theme for December 2017.

It is no cosmic coincidence that Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius during the final weeks of Saturn's transit of Sagittarius.

Mercury retrogrades as I think you all know by now, are a great opportunity to do all things RE. RE view, REconcile, RE think, RE consider, RE start, REunite and so on.

This particular Mercury retrograde is asking us to look back over the last year but also over the last few years of Saturn's transit and the personal challenges, delays, or fear we may have experienced (all of these are Saturn's shadow).

We are being asked by the cosmos to look backwards but only insofar as to learn and integrate the lessons so that we can truly move forwards.

As the quote in the image accompanying this blog wisely says, we learn from our mistakes or we go backwards in life.

Soulstrology says that if we keep repeating the same mistakes we cannot point the finger of blame at the cosmos, the moon and stars, we need to take responsibility and turn the finger around and point it at ourselves.

We are continually co-creating our existences with the cosmos so we need to do our bit to tap into the energies and blessings which are available.

Soulstrology reminds us that mistakes are powerful, valuable lessons and that we will always be making mistakes in life and this is part of the human existence.

However, we know we are growing when we stop making the same mistakes and start making new ones!

That's when we know we have shed old karma and have new opportunities for growth and new blessings to tap into.

Some people get sensitive or defensive around the idea of making a mistake and taking responsibility for it but this over sensitivity and defensiveness is usually just an ego reaction.

It's easier to adopt victim consciousness but it is more rewarding to adopt victor consciousness and alchemize our mistakes into mastery and miracles.

Whilst Saturn's tough love is often focused upon it is easy to forget that this is the planet that rewards hard work over time.

Saturn transits may test you, but they will also reward you!

When the cosmic taskmaster departs a zone of your chart it's as though he gives you a star based on your efforts.

In each of our lives this star equates to reaping what we have sown.

But the transit is not over yet and Mercury's retrograde can bring back past issues for final healing and closure so we can move forwards and receive our cosmic dues from Saturn.

Gold stars all around please!

Over the next month when many of us are in holiday mode and focusing on festivities and gifts, give yourself the gift of time and effort into reviewing your life over the last year and the Sagittarius ruled part of your life over the last three years.

It truly is the greatest gift you can give yourself so that you can move forwards to have the 2018 you desire...

Mantra of the month:

I practice patience with myself and others knowing any seeming delays or mistakes are in cosmic order and will unravel themselves for the highest good in divine timing

I look backwards with courage and faith knowing that by healing the past I can transform my future

I embrace my mistakes as MUST TAKES and willingly integrate the lessons trusting that doing so will create the space for me to receive

As always I will write detailed blogs for both the New and Full Moons.

Members can expect weekly cosmic updates and more detailed information for their zodiac sign for both the Full and New Moons.

In the meantime here are the key dates for your cosmic diary for December 2017.

December 1: Mars (in Libra) opposes Uranus (in Aries) - tense aspect, can lead to conflict and power struggles, positive outcome is sudden change manifesting

December 2: Jupiter (in Scorpio) trines Neptune (in Pisces) harmonious, romantic, creative, spiritual aspect

December 2: Venus moves into Sagittarius (will write Member's blog on this)

December 3: Mercury turns retrograde at 28 degrees Sagittarius

December 3: Full Moon Gemini (will write detailed blog on this and Members will get a guide for their zodiac sign)

December 6: Mercury (in Sagittarius) conjuncts Saturn (in Sagittarius) a heavy aspect for the mind. The past may come knocking. Information may come to light regarding challenges or tests from the past

December 10: Mercury (in Sagittarius) trines Uranus (in Aries) Unexpected communication or information. Positive aspect.

December 11: Mars moves into Scorpio (will write detailed blog for Members on this)

December 12: Sun (in Sagittarius) conjunct Mercury (in Sagittarius) a powerful aspect which may tell you what this Mercury retrograde represents for you

December 15: Mercury (in Sagittarius) conjuncts Venus (in Sagittarius) a powerful positive aspect for love and creativity

December 16: Sun (in Sagittarius) trines Uranus (in Aries) positive aspect

December 17: New Moon (PT) in Sagittarius (will write detailed blog on this)

December 20: Venus (in Sagittarius) trines Uranus (in Aries) positive aspect

December 21: Winter Solstice

December 21: Saturn moves into Capricorn

December 22: Sun (in Capricorn) conjuncts Saturn (in Capricorn) powerful aspect, can be very productive, can also feel heavy

December 23: Mercury stations direct at 13 degrees of Sagittarius (it's not over though! Now it's the post retrograde shadow!)

December 25: Venus (in Capricorn) conjuncts Saturn (in Capricorn) I predict LOTS of Christmas Day proposals in 2017 (more than usual!) as Venus governs love, Saturn governs commitment and status!

December 26: Venus moves into Capricorn (will write detailed blog on this for Members)

December 28: Mars (in Scorpio) trines Neptune (in Pisces) positive powerful aspect for creativity, romance/sex and spirituality

I am wishing you all a wonderful last month of 2017.

May we all have the courage to look backwards and heal and clear so we can finally move forward.

Love,

New Moon in Scorpio November 18 2017: Transformation will manifest miracles

Ambi Sitham

Positive change doesn't always feel or seem positive at the beginning...

Positive change doesn't always feel or seem positive at the beginning...

Hello lovely ones and happy nearly New Moon in Scorpio!

The New Moon takes place on Saturday 18 November 2017 at 3.47am PST (adjust for your timezone) and falls at 26 degrees of the powerful, intense water sign of Scorpio.

As I am sure you all know by now, cosmic giant Jupiter is now in Scorpio where he will be until next November 2018.

This transit is a wonderful opportunity for each of us to experience growth and miracles regarding the natural zodiac themes of Scorpio (joint finances, merging, sex, transformation) as well as the life areas which Scorpio governs in our unique natal charts.

That makes this New Moon so powerful as a cosmic window of opportunity for us to think about the life themes in the cosmic spotlight and what we want to create in those, not just over the next month, but also over the next year.

However, a few days prior to this New Moon, Mercury began it's retrograde as it moved into pre-retrograde shadow before the official retrograde starts on December 3 2017.

Soulstrology tells us that the retrograde shadow periods are as powerful and as much part of the retrograde as the 'official' retrograde.

Even though this retrograde takes place in Sagittarius, it can impact all areas of our lives.

And in true retrograde style can cause muddles, mischief and mayhem.

Soulstrology tells us that we can use this retrograde and New Moon to our advantage, as a powerful opportunity to do all things RE in the Scorpio ruled parts of each of our charts.

Firstly to REview the current status quo in the Scorpio ruled areas of life and to see what needs healing and repairing.

And then to REconsider the current goals in these areas of life and REVISE and RESET where appropriate.

There is no doubt that the Jupiter in Scorpio transit holds the potential to bring each of us many miracles over the next year.

But Soulstrology reminds us that we need to create the space for these miracles.

We need to make the effort and do the work in order to create change and receive our cosmic blessings.

This Scorpio New Moon offers us the perfect opportunity to plant the seeds of success which will flower over the next year.

Turning now to the title of this blog and the Soulstrology theme of this New Moon.

This New Moon has an intense energy around it (hey it is Scorpio season!) which is amplified by the fact that a day after the New Moon cosmic powerhouses Mars and Pluto square off against each other.

This is a tense aspect which can bring matters which have been bubbling underneath the surface up and into the light.

Think confrontation (Mars) and potential power struggles (Pluto).

Soulstrology tells us that even thought this is a tense aspect, (rather like a Full Moon) we can harness this energy to our advantage.

As always there is a duality to each aspect and the light of this aspect is the energy to take action (Mars) and transform to manifest soulful success (Pluto).

But this requires us to channel the light of Scorpio, Mars and Pluto.

What this means is for us to be brave and actual DO something and TAKE action where needed (Mars).

It also requires us to dig deep beneath the surface and understand why our physical reality is how it is (Scorpio) and to unearth whatever may be subconsciously impacting upon us and creating a reality that is not in alignment with our desires (Scorpio).

And finally we are asked to be ready to allow what is decaying or needs to die, to DIE.

Yes, this means endings. But there can be no sweet new beginning without an ending.

The theme of this New Moon and the next lunar cycle is transformation and planting the seeds of success which will manifest magic and miracles over the next year.

Soulstrology reminds us that transformation takes place in different ways.

Sometimes it is with huge life changes (quitting a job, a relationship, moving etc) but it is also in the small everyday efforts which we make which create transformation over time (in this case over the next year).

Remember Rome and Oprah weren't built in a day!

It is easy to have desires and want change but it takes grit and hard work to truly create change and manifest our dreams.

Too often we shy away from that.

Think of the person who complains about their life/job/lack of manifestation and longs for change but stays in the same job, living in the same home, living the same lifestyle and doesn't consistently work on themselves.

It doesn't take a genius to work out why their lives remain the same!

And then think of the person who makes brave decisions, big changes and/or who works quietly everyday on changing themselves and/or lives.

Of course they end up changing their lives and manifesting success, because they change themselves.

All of this may seem obvious but no matter how conscious we think we are, human nature is to have a blind spot.

It is likely that for each of us there will be an area of life in which we have a cherished goal that is yet to manifest and want to create a big shift in.

Soulstrology says we can manifest magic and create this change but it starts within, with us.

We must be brave. We must be pro-active.

We must embrace transformation, even if that results in seemingly painful endings or uncertainty as to the road ahead.

And we must work on ourselves and our vision.

Every. Single. Day.

New Moon Mantras

I embrace transformation knowing that change starts within, with me.

I walk the talk and take action to create the life I desire.

I am consistent and work on myself every day in some small way.

I trust that endings are necessary for new beginnings.

I have faith that my efforts will be rewarded in perfect timing.

I am wishing you all a powerful and transformative New Moon.

May each of us be brave and pro-active to take responsibility for creating the lives we desire.

May the manifestation of our miracles also be a source of goodness and miracles for those around us and our beloved world.

So may it be.

Love,

Ambi x

 

 

 

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius November 15 2017 - January 10 2018: Soulstrology Zodiac Guide

Ambi Sitham

Here we go...seatbelts on and ready for this Mercury Retro rollercoaster where we try not to panic and instead be mindful and do all things RE!

Here we go...seatbelts on and ready for this Mercury Retro rollercoaster where we try not to panic and instead be mindful and do all things RE!

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

So here we go, this Mercury retrograde has officially started according to Soulstrology and the next two months will see some usual Mercury retro mayhem but also holds opportunity for great magic and miracles. Yes, really!

Soulstrology says that because this Mercury retrograde is in Sagittarius (which has been subject to the stern transit of Saturn over the last three years) it will be a very testing time as  the combination of Mercury and Saturn and the Sun join up to force us to look carefully at karmic lessons we have yet to learn in the Sagittarius ruled parts of each of our lives.

We need to REview and REvisit the past, and at times this may prove painful, as though a wound we thought had healed gets opened up once again and we feel the sting.
