The Nodes in Cancer/Capricorn: November 2018 - June 2020

Ambi Sitham

CancerCapricorn.png

Hello lovely ones and happy Friday!

You may have heard of the lunar nodes and specifically the North and the South nodes.

These aren’t planets which travel across the zodiac but rather they are mathematical points calculated by where the moon’s orbit cuts the ecliptic (which is the path the Sun takes around Earth).

The lunar nodes are in pairs, in opposing signs of the zodiac which change position approximately every year and a half or so and during their time in a certain set of signs we will experience eclipses in this set of opposing zodiac signs.

As you probably know by now, Soulstrology teaches us that when there are eclipses in a certain set of signs, it offers each of us (regardless of our zodiac sign) the opportunity to create very big lasting changes in the areas of our charts/lives that the nodes/eclipses are triggering.

If the nodes/eclipses are taking place in our Sun or Rising signs, we can expect even more significant shifts to take place!

E.g. I met my now husband in 2016 when the eclipses/nodes were triggering my natal rising sign of Virgo and my natal seventh house of partnerships of Pisces (and at the latter end of the Jupiter in Virgo transit so Jupiter was transiting my rising sign!)

But back to the here and now…a month ago, on November 15, the lunar nodes switched position out of the Leo/Aquarius axis and into the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

This is big news for all of us because as I am sure you know both cosmic power players Pluto and Saturn are dancing around in Capricorn…and now they will be joined by eclipses in the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

So what does this mean for all of us in practical terms?

First off we must remember what Soulstrology teaches about the lunar nodes and the role they play in our lives.

The South node (which is now in Capricorn) is all about the past.

Generally speaking the South node represents what comes easily to us, what is comfortable, what we are used to doing because we have experienced it already in a previous lifetime.

So this can mean what we are naturally good at which we don’t need to necessarily ‘try’ at.

However on a less positive note, the South node can also represent unresolved karma and baggage from previous existences.

This can be traits which we find hard to rid ourselves of, patterns we keep repeating which keep us stuck in a vicious cycle, certain mindsets/ideas/attachments/illusions.

The North node (which is now in Cancer) is all about the future.

It’s about our fate and destiny.

What we are supposed to reach for in terms of consciousness and life experiences.

It’s about character traits we are asked to adopt and themes of life we are asked to integrate into our present lives.

It doesn’t necessarily come easily to us but if we can do it we can step into a new chapter of life which helps us fulfill our destiny.

Now with the South node in Capricorn a lot of us will be experiencing some karmic lessons with regards to the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our charts.

This is exacerbated because both Saturn and Pluto are also in Capricorn.

As you all know, Saturn is a teacher to each of us, but can be a stern teacher who puts fear into us, and can make us feel as though we are delayed in getting what we desire (he rules time and loves to take his good ole time to teach us a lesson!).

Currently he is teaching us many lessons in the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our lives alongside powerful Pluto who since 2008 has been transforming the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our lives but is now having his efforts ramped up by having Saturn’s assistance.

Important note for your diaries now…in 2019 Saturn meets up with this South node in Capricorn three times - May 20, June 23 and September 25.

Events around these times will have a distinctly karmic feel to them and may be challenging but are also amazing opportunities for us to step into the North node of Cancer…which leads me nicely onto my next point!

Over the next 18 months we may experience tests and challenging times in the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our charts (hey we may already have done in the last year of Saturn in Capricorn!) but that doesn’t mean that we will be forever stuck with regards to these areas of life.

Rather, what it means is that when faced with the challenges in the Capricorn ruled parts of our charts and lives, we need to step away from the qualities, traits, ways of being and doing which come naturally to us in these areas of life and step into the opposing realm of Cancer.

Capricorn plans, schedules, organizes and climbs the mountain focusing on facts and figures.

Capricorn sees everything in black and white, relying on logic and rational - mind over matter.

This can serve us well in many ways.

But this often comes at the expense of emotions and intuition and indeed the right brained thinking.

The latter is the realm of Cancer.

Cancer emotes their way through life (yes, perhaps sometimes too much but that’s for another time!).

They use their intuition and feelings to guide them through life.

They express their emotions, feel all the feels and by processing their emotions, they navigate the trials and tribulations of life.

They trust their intuition over logic and facts.

Their hearts rules their heads.

Over the next 18 months each of us are asked to be more like Cancer.

Rather than to hustle and rationalize our way through life e.g. “If I do this, I will get this”, we are asked to nurture ourselves (Cancer is the sign of the mother, family and home), let our hearts guide us, feel our emotions, and allow ourselves to be the living, feeling humans that we are.

Over the next 18 months if and when we face difficulties in the Capricorn ruled parts of our lives if we can step into the Cancer traits rather than trying to solve, or fix a la Capricorn, we may find that we experience a lot more ease and flow and problems miraculously solve themselves!

Note, with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn this doesn’t mean that we won’t be doing the Saturn esque ‘work’ in the Capricorn ruled parts of our lives and charts, but what it does mean is that when we feel we are slipping into rigid, fixed ways of being, or are focusing too much on ‘facts’ and not relying on our feelings/intuition, we know it is a sign that we need to stop and drop.

Stop and drop our hands to our hearts and ask ourselves and the cosmos,

  1. What do I need to do to nurture myself so this area of my life can be nurtured and can flourish?

  2. What do I need to allow myself to feel and heal?

  3. How can I tap more into my intuition and let it guide me as to what next to do in this area of life?

  4. How can I be more loving and soft in this area of life?

  5. How can I learn to ebb and flow more with regards to these matters of life? Catching a wave and riding with it, rather than swimming against the currents?

There will be more to come on this topic in time to come but for now check out the Soulstrology zodiac guides below for the Nodes in Cancer/Capricorn and maybe journal on the life areas being brought into the cosmic spotlight and how you can infuse those Cancerian traits, qualities and themes into life.

Have a wonderful weekend and I will be back next week with your Winter Solstice/Full Moon in Cancer posts.

Love,

December 2018 New Moon in Sagittarius: Miracles Come From Mayhem

Ambi Sitham

 They really do….

They really do….

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon in Sagittarius!

This New Moon falls at 15 degrees of the fire sign of Sagittarius and takes place at 11.20pm PT on Thursday 6th December 2018 (adjust for your timezone).

As always you can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to check where Sagittarius rules in your unique chart, reading for both your Sun and Rising sign.

If you are more of a Soulstrology pro and adept at reading your own chart you can check where 15 degrees of Sagittarius falls and indeed any planets you have between 12 and 18 degrees of Sagittarius because they will be activated, aka cosmically pinged, by this New Moon.

Now, I don’t think I need to tell you all that Jupiter moved into Sagittarius last month and will be there until next December 2019.

And I think you are all pretty aware that mischievous Mercury has also been retrograde in Sagittarius for the last few weeks…

Just after this New Moon, Mercury stations direct….(actually in Scorpio, but right at the end degrees and for the purpose of our work we are focused on his retrograde in Sag).

None of this is a cosmic coincidence but rather a gift from the cosmos to help us make the most of this year long transit of cosmic benefic Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Hopefully you would all have done the cosmic coaching homework which was set out in the Jupiter in Sagittarius blog and done everything RE a la Mercury retrograde (check the Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius blog again if you need a little REfresher or REminder!) with regards to the Sagittarius ruled parts of your chart and therefore life.

So, now what?

Well, think of this Sagittarius New Moon as planting the seeds of the changes (and miracles) you wish to manifest in the Sagittarius ruled parts of your life.

You’ve done all the homework, you’ve tilled the soil (aka your life) and now is the time to plant the seeds.

Unlike a usual New Moon where we think about what we want to manifest for the next lunar cycle, we need to think big (a la Jupiter) and think about the big shifts we will create in the Sagittarius ruled parts of our lives by next December.

We can harness the energy of this New Moon to plant both big intentions, but also planting the seeds of change.

Some of our New Moon wishes may come to fruition by the Cancer Full Moon in late December, others by the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn in January, but many of them will take longer to come to fruition.

Whenever we have a big overarching goal, we need to create little markers along the way to that goal so that we can tick off a box and know that we are inching ever closer to manifesting what it is that we desire.

The whole essence of Soulstrology is to use the lunar cycles and cosmic events as our markers.

With this in mind know that some of the seeds you plant at this New Moon may flower by the next Full Moon, or over the next lunar cycle and the January solar eclipse, but others will take longer, with some perhaps blossoming by the Sagittarius Full Moon next May (which corresponds to this New Moon) and others only coming to fruition by the departure of Jupiter from the Sagittarius ruled part of the zodiac next December 2019.

Manifesting magic is a process which can take it’s good ole time but the process is a necessary one and we can use the monthly lunar cycles as markers on our way to achieving our bigger goals, so that we know we are on track and are making progress.

This is why it is so important to think big at this New Moon (very a la Jupiter, the ruler of the New Moon) and to not only think about what you wish to manifest over the next lunar month but to also have a bigger picture, broader perspective and think about the shift you wish to create by next December when we are once again in Sagittarius season and Jupiter is readying to depart the Sagittarius ruled part of your life, leaving it forever changed, for the better!

You can then use the lunar cycles in between (and Jupiter’s retrograde etc) as markers which can help guide you on your way to achieving your big goal.

So you are perhaps thinking by now, if Jupiter is in Sagittarius and this is a Sagittarius New Moon and the underlying theme is all about miracles, what’s up with the title and Soulstrology theme for this New Moon - ‘miracles come from mayhem’?!

To understand this better we must look at the celestial aspects of this New Moon.

We have Venus (now out of retrograde and retracing her steps at the beginning of Scorpio) opposing Uranus (retrograding in the very final degrees of Aries).

An opposition is a tense aspect which can make us feel out of sorts, and unbalanced (in a Full Moony kinda way).

With Venus and Uranus at play in this opposition this can play out about love, sex, creativity, money, socializing (Venus) and can have a rug pulled out from under our feet kinda feeling (Uranus).

We may feel unbalanced because of something that happens or find we have to deal with polarity and conflict in certain areas of life.

But remember, it doesn’t have to be all bad! By any means.

Oppositions are tense aspects but they can also create miracles and magic (sometimes an opposition forces a hand and an outcome!) even if they are often accompanied by mayhem…

Speaking of mayhem, this New Moon squares both Mars and Neptune whose energies are fused together as they sit side by side in the Pisces ruled part of the zodiac.

Mars and Neptune are uncomfortable bedfellows and Mars is not best placed in Pisces.

So this makes for another tense energy at this New Moon where we may experience conflict and or tension between the Sagittarius ruled parts of our lives and the Pisces ruled parts of life.

With Mars and Neptune conjunct (on top of/beside each other) we can find the shadow traits of Pisces/Neptune are present, namely - deception of others, others deceiving us, delusional overly rose tinted perspectives, being unrealistic, victim syndrome, passive aggressiveness and so on…

Add into this mix that Mercury stations direct (often the worst parts of the retrograde are when planets station retrograde or direct, or in the pre/post shadow periods closest to those retrogrades) shortly after this New Moon and you add to the generally chaotic, confused, muddled energy that is present at this time.

So what do we do? And how do we tap into the miracle making energies of Jupiter/Sagittarius?

Here is where we need to understand Jupiter better and adopt his traits.

Jupiter is the miracle maker because he chooses to be the miracle maker.

He does not go outside of himself to seek the miracle but knows it is within him, and rather is to be revealed.

Jupiter IS the miracle. For himself and others.

Jupiter does the right thing, because it is the right thing to do.

Jupiter shares even when he doesn’t have much, but because he has something.

Jupiter knows that every cloud has a silver lining, every rainstorm has its rainbow and every burden can contain a blessing.

Jupiter knows that amidst chaos, confusion and the mayhem are miracles, waiting to be revealed.

Jupiter has a glass half full optimistic outlook to life and so life reflects that back to him.

He creates miracles because he IS the miracle.

Our job at this New Moon is to do the same.

Maybe this New Moon feels good to you (in which case, yay!) maybe life is doing pretty all right now (double yay) or maybe you are in the midst of mayhem and chaos (boo but yay too as it can be the catalyst for miracles!)

Either way, you can harness the powerful aspects of this New Moon to plant the seeds of magic and miracles to take place (regardless of any accompanying mayhem) in the Sagittarius ruled part of your life over the next year, some of which will come to fruition this month, others over the next six months to a year.

You can harness this by looking at all the tense aspects and the energies that they ask us to look at (things we don’t usually like to look at) and ask yourself what your mindset is regarding these areas of life.

Do you freak out if finances are ‘difficult’ or ‘bad’ or if your love life takes a sudden turn for the worse?

If something unexpected and ‘unwanted’ happens?

Do you contort physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually with each twist and turn that is the journey of life?

If so, you aren’t alone, but you need to be more like Jupiter.

You need to think BIG about your life.

And not be scared to want a BIG and FULL life.

Full of miracles.

You need to know that you must always look to what you have, rather than what you don’t have.

To count your blessings, not your burdens.

To know that in chaos lies opportunity.

In darkness, there is light waiting to be revealed.

Among mayhem, miracles waiting to be discovered.

You need to know that YOU are a miracle.

To yourself and others.

And that you have everything within you to create miracles in your life and for the world at large.

You need to feel that with every bone in your body and you need to believe it and trust it, at this New Moon and beyond…

We all want miracles in our lives, but sometimes we need to be reminded that manifesting miracles is often more about our mindset and consciousness than it is about the hustle.

And therefore our energies are best directed inward, at our emotional state, or mindset, our consciousness and our energies, because that is where the miracle is birthed, first within, then on the external plane.

Check out your Soulstrology Scopes for some cosmic coaching, New Moon mantras, a channeled word/theme for your sign and a Sagittarius New Moon ritual (plus Soundbath).

Happy miracle making New Moon!

Soulstrology Scopes for Sagittarius New Moon

Ambi Sitham

soulstrologyscopessag.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon and ‘Mercury retro is nearly over’ !

So, let’s get manifesting with this New Moon.

Here are some cosmic coaching tips on making the most of this New Moon given the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.

  1. Review the Sagittarius ruled parts of life in your chart (use the Soulstrology zodiac guide provided with the New Moon blog). *If you have any planets in Sagittarius think about the energies/themes of this planet and review these in your life - eg. Sun - essence of who you are, Pluto - transformation, rebirth, power, wealth - Mercury - your mind, communication (and all related projects), Neptune - spirituality, compassion, creativity - Mars - energy, drive, ambition, sex - Venus - love, creativity, abundance, Uranus - complete change, innovation, disruption, the future, Moon - emotions, family, motherhood, Jupiter - luck, miracles, expansion, wealth, Chiron - wounds, wisdom, healing, Saturn - structure, success, lessons, time.

  2. Think about goals you wish to manifest in the Sagittarius ruled parts of your life. Specifically ask yourself what big goal you want to achieve by this time next year when Jupiter is departing Sagittarius. Also think about what you want to achieve in relation to this one year goal, by the Sagittarius Full Moon next May. Then ask yourself what you want to achieve in relation to this goal by the March Spring Equinox and then beginning of Aries season. Next ask yourself what you want to achieve by the next New Moon in January 2019.

  3. The above could make you think ‘what’?! But here is the thing, this is breaking down your bigger goal into smaller goals and landmarks to achieve in relation to your bigger goal….it will really help you to focus and indeed to make progress with your bigger goal and actually achieve it!

  4. Make a list of the miracles you wish to experience in your life (can be across the board, not limited to the Sagittarius ruled areas of life). On a piece of paper make two lists with a line dividing in between. On one side make a list of the miracle (s) you wish to experience. On the other side make a corresponding list of the miracle you are prepared to be/create for others. This is working with the energy of Jupiter to be a miracle to create a miracle for yourself and others!

  5. Listen to the Jupiter/Earth Soulstrology Soundbath (link below for your ease) and meditate. Perhaps do your cosmic coaching homework after this, or whilst listening to it.

  6. On the top of your manifesting list you can use the wording (or something similar)

    I accept all of the below or something even better for my highest good and the greater good of all

Here are the general Sagittarius 2018 New Moon mantras:

I choose to believe in miracles

I choose to see and appreciate the small miracles in my everyday life

I know that by doing so I will see miracles multiply in my life

I choose to trust that any mayhem or chaos in my life is a necessary part of my process

And I have faith that this process is for my highest good and will ultimately unfold miracles in my life

I choose to plant the seeds of miracles now, knowing that some seeds will flower sooner than others, but they will all ultimately flower into beautiful blessings in my life

And so it is.

Below is your channeled theme for this Sagittarius New Moon. Read for both your Sun and Rising sign (and even moon if you would like!) to get a message for you to work with over this lunar cycle.

Aries/Aries rising The world is your oyster

Taurus/Taurus rising Expect magic from others

Gemini/Gemini rising Be the miracle in your partnerships

Cancer/Cancer rising Trust in healing and luck in your work and everyday life

Leo/Leo rising It’s your time to be loved and shine

Virgo/Virgo rising Home is where the heart, and magic is

Libra/Libra rising The miracle is nearby, look around you

Scorpio/Scorpio rising You can experience magic with money

Sagittarius/Sagittarius rising This is your year of miracles

Capricorn/Capricorn rising Your gift is in the hidden, dig deep

Aquarius/Aquarius rising Your future is golden

Pisces/Pisces rising Success is yours for the taking

Light a candle or incense, get cosy, put your headphones in and enjoy the sounds of Jupiter and Earth!

Neptune Direct November 2018: Dreams can come true

Ambi Sitham

 Yes they can….

Yes they can….

Hello lovely ones and happy Friday!

For those of you in the US, I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I hope the Full Moon treated all of you well and this finds you well…

So, another cosmic update for you which is that tomorrow, November 24 2018, Neptune turns direct, ending his annual retrograde which started on June 18 at 16 degrees Pisces and ends on November 24 at 13 degrees of Pisces.

Use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to check where Pisces rules in your chart (don’t forget to read for your sun and rising sign) to see where this transit has taken place.

If you want to go a little deeper and are more comfortable with reading your chart, then check where you have between 13 and 16 degrees of Pisces in your chart as well as any planets you have in Pisces around those degrees as this transit would have activated them.

You may recall that the Soulstrology theme for the 2018 Neptune retrograde was ‘turning dreams into reality’ and that even though Neptune was retrograde it made beautiful aspects to Jupiter in Scorpio meaning there was much opportunity for creation during this transit and indeed opportunities for luck.

This transit was also some of a reality check showing us what we needed to do in order to make our dreams come true - in otherwise the part we need to play to make our dreams a reality…

So what’s next now that Neptune is direct?

Pisces/Pisces rising will probably feel this transit most as Neptune is your ruler.

So once he is in forward motion you will probably just feel more in flow and in tune with life and more like yourself.

Neptune retrograde, whilst good for you (reality checks are good for all of us) could have felt a little more like ‘reality bites’ which may not have been entirely palatable to your sensitive selves, now he is direct, you may find yourself more easily able to be in your natural, creative, dream like state.

As for the rest of us, we also may have had a bit of a reality check in our lives over the last few months in the Neptune ruled parts of our lives.

We may have seen clearly what we needed to do in order to make our dreams come true and we hopefully took advantage of the beautiful aspects Neptune made to Jupiter to make things happen in the Pisces ruled parts of our lives.

And now is the time to indulge in the dreamy, spiritual, creative energies of Neptune direct.

It’s time to remind ourselves that when it comes to the goals we have in the Pisces ruled parts of our lives, that we can allow ourselves to dream, to have faith, to look at things through rose tinted glasses.

Remember as Walt Disney said, if you can dream it, you can do it.

And remember that many of the most successful business people, entrepreneurs and innovators in our world have been Pisces.

So, we can dream big dreams in the Pisces ruled parts of our charts and trust that if we can dream it, we can do it.

Take this time to re-read the Mars in Pisces post, to see how you can harness both the energy of Neptune direct and Mars in Pisces to make some progress in the Pisces ruled part of your chart.

Hint, it may have more to do with dreaming, being and planting creative and energetic seeds than doing…

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and will be back on November 30th with your Soulstrology Member guide for December 2018.

Love,

Ambi x

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Gemini Full Moon!

So hopefully you have all read the Soulstrology blog for this Gemini Full Moon and understand the themes which are at play.

Now I encourage you all to answer the following questions…

  1. Where am I overthinking in my life and trying to ‘solve’ things with logic, or worrying about the current state of affairs? (note, look at the Gemini and Sagittarius ruled parts of your charts/lives but also just answer this generally)

  2. How can I be more philosophical, hopeful and optimistic in these areas of life (the Gemini/Sagittarius ruled areas of lives as well as the general areas of life which are bubbling up for you at this Full Moon).

  3. What can I release, let go of, or heal at this time? (Answer generally but also with a focus on your mind, communication with others, and the Gemini/Sagittarius ruled parts of your charts/lives)

Maybe listen to the Mercury Soulstrology Soundbath and/or the Chiron Soundbath either before answering these questions or afterwards (or both before and after if you’d like, maybe Mercury before and then Chiron after!)

Next make a release list using the following wording.

I release all of the below because it does not serve me or my highest good.

By releasing the below I make space for positive energy to come in and help manifest my heart’s desires.

Write down whatever is bothering you (and using the questions above to help prompt you to make a Gemini Full Moon specific release list).

Go out and look at the moon and burn that list (safely!)

As the list burns feel the energy of those things you are releasing leave your energetic body.

Just as smoke goes up in the air, visualize that smoke is also leaving your body…the smoke representing negative energy….from what you are releasing…

You can do this the night before the Full Moon (I probably will do it then as I find the lead up the most intense!) or the day/night of, or the day after.

Whatever feels good for you and feels as though it will serve you most at this time is good.

Finally,

repeat the following mantra as a meditation or as an affirmation of sorts and then check your Soulstrology Scopes (read for your Sun and Rising sign) for a channeled word for you for this Full Moon.

Gemini Full Moon November 2018 Mantra

I let go of the need to work things out with my rational mind

I release the tendency to ruminate and overthink things

I let go of any old ways of thinking and communicating which are of a low vibration and do not serve me, or others

I connect to my higher mind and the part of me that trusts that all is unfolding for my highest good

  • Aries/Aries rising CLARITY

  • Taurus/Taurus rising ABUNDANCE

  • Gemini/Gemini rising EMPOWERMENT

  • Cancer/Cancer rising TRUST

  • Leo/Leo rising CONNECTION

  • Virgo/Virgo rising SUCCESS

  • Libra/Libra rising EXPANSION

  • Scorpio/Scorpio rising TRANSFORMATION

  • Sagittarius/Sagittarius rising PARTNERSHIP

  • Capricorn/Capricorn rising BALANCE

  • Aquarius/Aquarius rising PASSION

  • Pisces/Pisces rising HEART

I am wishing you all a powerful healing Gemini Full Moon where you engage your higher mind over matter and you make space for both harmony and miracles.

So may it be.

Love,

Ambi x

Full Moon in Gemini November 2018: Mind over matter

Ambi Sitham

Gemfullmoon.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Full Moon!

On Thursday 22nd November 2018 (Thanksgiving for those of us in the US!) we have a Full Moon in Gemini which takes place at around 9.39pm PT.

This Full Moon falls at zero degrees of Gemini and marks the beginning of Sagittarius season which formally starts on Friday 23rd November 2018.

As always, the Sun (at zero degrees of Sagittarius) opposes the Full Moon, creating a tension in the Gemini and Sagittarius ruled parts of our lives and asking for us to find healing, release and ultimately balance and harmony.

Check the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see where this Full Moon falls in your chart and as always check too for any planets you may have around zero - four degrees of Gemini as these will get activated by this Full Moon.

Turning now to the celestial aspects at play at this Gemini Full Moon and the Soulstrology theme of ‘Mind Over Matter’.

As you all probably know by now, Jupiter is in Sagittarius (yay!) and is in his very early stages of his transit of Sagittarius.

At this Full Moon he sits very close to the Sun who is at zero degrees of Sagittarius, whilst Jupiter is at 3 degrees of Sagittarius.

This is known as a conjunction and basically means that Jupiter’s energies will blend with the Sun who opposes the Full Moon, meaning the cosmic miracle maker’s energies is very much part of this Full Moon.

However, an opposition - as you all probably know by now - is a tense aspect.

Just as the name suggests, an opposition creates a tension and polarity between two opposing energies.

When we have an opposition in our natal chart, or are experiencing it in a transit, it can mean we have to work with tense polar energies and it can be difficult to find balance.

This is why Full Moons by their nature are tense times, because at a Full Moon there is always an opposition between polar opposite zodiac signs.

But, oppositions aren’t to be feared.

They can force a redressing of issues and a finding of balance which can bring great success and even miracles!

That is why at times, Full Moons will be celebratory, when things come to fruition and completion leading to a celebration!

This Full Moon in Gemini versus Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius opposition is one which really is about our minds.

Our human minds (our ego selves, the smaller mind which likes to overthink, think it needs to be able to work everything out, think it needs an answer for everything, focuses on the little details, logic and reasoning) and our higher minds (our higher self, our soul, our intuition, the more elevated spiritual mind which we each have).

This tense opposition is really asking us to look at the Gemini (and Sagittarius) ruled areas of life in our unique charts and see where we have something which needs to be healed and/or released and apply the higher mind thinking to these situations.

Gemini is the sign of the thinker.

It is a sign which is ruled by Mercury (along with Virgo) and is a very intellectual sign.

This sign loves to think, think, think.

And often ends up over analyzing which leads to what I call ‘spinning out’ when one’s mind can’t stop thinking and not in a good way.

Gemini gets all caught up in the details, often to its detriment.

Regardless of our sign, we all need to look out for this tendency in our lives and of course at this Full Moon where it may bubble up even more.

Now, Sagittarius is also the thinker.

But Sagittarius is the philosophical thinker.

The one who looks at the bigger picture, takes a philosophical approach to ‘bad’ things happening and for whom the glass is not only half full, but they expect is soon to be topped up!

This is the sign of faith, hope and optimism.

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is known as a miracle maker and in Sagittarius this is illustrated by the sign’s faith being rewarded by a miracle.

Put simply, if you expect a miracle, you often receive a miracle because the universe simply reflects back to you your vibration!

The other main aspect at play at this Full Moon is another tense aspect.

A square between the Full Moon (emotions) and Mars in Pisces (anger, but an oddly passive aggressive anger!).

Squares, as their name suggests, are tense aspects.

Aspects which see two areas of life which don’t naturally flow, squaring off at each other.

In this case it sees the Full Moon in Gemini (communication, the mind, our thoughts) squaring off against Mars in Pisces (anger, particularly repressed anger, conflict, passive aggressive tendencies).

So what does this all mean?

This brings me nicely to the Soulstrology theme for this Gemini Full Moon.

Mind over matter.

Our higher mind over whatever ‘matter’ we are dealing with in the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of our lives (perhaps finding balance between those two areas of life) and/or whatever the Full Moon brings up for us.

Mind over matter means not getting caught up in the minutiae.

It means trusting (engaging that higher mind) in the bigger picture and that there is a bigger picture for all the situations in your life and that all is well in that bigger picture (no matter what things may look like on the physical plane right now).

It means engaging a philosophical and compassionate (both higher octaves of Sagittarius traits) approach to whatever comes up at this time whether that is within your own psyche or in communication with others (both Gemini ruled themes).

It means having the self-control (within your mind and communication) when it comes to any potential disagreements or conflicts (that the Full Moon/Mars square may bring up!)

It doesn’t mean swallowing your feelings (that isn’t healthy and can lead to passive aggressive Mars in Pisces behavior!) rather it means communicating in a way that truly serves you and others.

Interestingly for those in the US this is a time when families come together and that isn’t always easy for many, plus the holidays can bring up issues for those who don’t have families, or who are estranged from them.

Holidays can be a time when we really need to engage mind over matter.

And of course Full Moons are always a time when we need to engage our higher selves and minds so we can work with the energies present at this time.

La luna is still waxing to her fullness as I write this post.

So look at what is coming up for you.

Look at the Gemini ruled parts of each of your charts/lives and see where you are at in terms of your thoughts about those areas of life (hint, are you spinning out, as if so, you’ve fallen into that Gemini shadow and definitely need to engage mind over matter!)

I will be back with your Soulstrology Scopes and some cosmic coaching homework to help you work with this Full Moon.

Until then, take good care (and listen to that Mercury retrograde soundbath as Mercury is ruler of this Full Moon and he is here to help us RE think how we think and speak!)

Back soon.

Love,

Mars in Pisces November 16 2018 - January 2 2019: Easy does it....

Ambi Sitham

marsinpisces.jpg.png

Well, as always, there is a lot happening in the cosmos all at once…

As well as Mercury stationing retrograde and Venus stationing direct, cosmic mover and shaker Mars decided he wants to get in on the action (lol, trust Mars!) and he moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces where he will be until the New Year (he officially changes signs on January 2nd and moves into Aries).

Mars in Pisces are odd bed fellows…

As you all probably know by now, Mars is a sign of action and energy and the cosmic manifestor has a fiery energy meaning he gets things done, and often gets into ‘wars’ whilst on his mission to get things done.

Whereas Pisces is a more gentle, water sign.

Emotional, sensitive, intuitive, flexible.

Mars is aggressive whereas Pisces can be passive aggressive. Almost opposing energies!

Water and fire don’t always mix so well.

Sometimes the water is desperately needed to put out fires, but sometimes water puts out burning embers which are needed to create fiery energy which helps manifest change in our lives.

However, as always, Soulstrology tells us that there is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ per se, simply windows of opportunity and consciousness for us to work with.

With this particular Mars in Pisces transit taking place during Mercury retrograde alongside Venus retracing her steps in the shadow period post her retrograde, Soulstrology tells us that this Mars in Pisces transit theme is ‘Easy does it’.

We can learn a lot from the flexible, emotional, watery nature of Pisces and apply this to the Mars themes of action, manifesting, and energy.

We can learn that sometimes to take it easy, be flexible with life and bend softly and flow, just as water does, is as powerful as being fiery and forging ahead with our plans.

For those of you with your natal Mars in Pisces, you will be having your Mars return.

Search for the Mars return blog to understand what that means and how best you can work with this transit.

For those of you who are a Pisces/Pisces rising, this Mars in Pisces transit is a great opportunity to think about your goals in relation to your identity, appearance, how others view you and your place in the world.

For everyone else, this transit is taking place somewhere in your chart and you can read the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see which life areas Mars is moving over during his transit (don’t forget to read for both your Sun and rising sign) and let yourself think about what you want to create in these areas of life, with all the other cosmic conditions in mind…

As always, there is a duality to this transit, with both shadow and light, magic and murkiness, so below are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Mars in Pisces transit to help you to make the most of it and bathe in the light of this celestial configuration.

DO’S

  • Rest Your energy levels may fluctuate just as a Pisces mood can fluctuate. Allow yourself the gift of rest which is very aligned with Mercury retrograde

  • Go with the flow just like water, be flexible. Let life happen through you

  • Meditate Pisces is a very spiritual and intuitive sign. During this transit some of our greatest work and manifesting can come through meditation, prayer and ritual

  • Creativity Whether you consider yourself a creative, or not, this transit is so helpful for us to each tap into that inner creative child, which by the way we all have. Your expression of creativity may not look like someone else’s but that doesn’t mean you aren’t creative and you cannot use your unique creativity in your life.

DON’TS

  • Be moody Ok so you may end up being moody but be mindful of HOW moody you allow yourself to get. This transit can lend to us being moodier than usual (fluctuating energies like those Pisces fish friends of ours!) which does us no favors!

  • Be passive aggressive This transit (combined with Mercury retro) can lead to big blow outs due to lack of proper communication and passive aggressive behavior. I am not saying blow up at someone. Just communicate clearly and don’t hold in your anger and then act passive aggressive which can lead to a whole different type of blow up!

  • Beat yourself up There is a cosmic cluster of sorts through to the end of the year and it may thwart some of what you wish to manifest. Remember that our job is to work with the cosmic energies, not against them. If things aren’t manifesting as you desire them to that doesn’t mean that they won’t work out as you want them to in the end. No self-flagellation allowed!

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius November - December 2018: Clearing the path

Ambi Sitham

 This Mercury retrograde has the ability to create miracles. Yes, really!

This Mercury retrograde has the ability to create miracles. Yes, really!

Hello lovely ones and happy almost weekend!

Friday November 16 2018 sees a lot of activity in the cosmos.

Venus stations direct (no celebrating as yet, when a planet stations either retrograde or direct is often when they are at their most chaotic!) and Mercury stations retrograde!

Cue dramatic movie music….

Expect the unexpected today and over the next few days.

Things can and will get a little chaotic because such is the way when planets are all moving in this way…

But back to this Mercury retrograde which takes place in the fire sign of Sagittarius.

First of all, you can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see where Sagittarius rules in your natal chart (read for both your Sun and Rising sign).

If you’re a bit more of a Soulstrology whizz, then check where you have between 13 degrees and 27 degrees of Sagittarius as these are the exact degrees of the retrograde with Mercury going retrograde at 13 degrees of Sagittarius and ending her retrograde at 27 degrees of Sagittarius.

The life areas Sagittarius rules in your chart and any planets or house points between 13 and 27 degrees of Sagittarius will show you the areas of life and themes which good ole Mercury is going to be raking over during the period of his retrograde which lasts three weeks until December 7 2018 and ends just after the Sagittarius New Moon….

Now I don’t think I need to tell you all that Jupiter has recently gone into Sagittarius for a 13 month transit!

You all hopefully read the blog last week on Jupiter in Sag and how it is time to get lucky!

That is why, this Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius, at the outset of the year long Jupiter in Sagittarius transit, is such a blessing.

As I think you all know by now, Mercury retrograde (in whatever zodiac sign) asks us to do all things RE.

REVIEW

RECONCILE

RECONSIDER

REVISE

RESET

REDO

RESTART

REST

RECUPERATE

And so on and so forth…you get the picture.

During a Mercury Retrograde sometimes issues arise because they need our attention and our input.

‘Problems’ and chaos in the form of Mercury mischief and muddles will arise because we usually need to do something RE in relation to said problem, chaos, mischief or muddle.

There is always a lesson in it. Always!

Even if that lesson is less than sweet medicine, ultimately it is good for us, it serves us and our highest good.

With Jupiter having moved into Sagittarius so recently, we want to be thinking about the miracles we can hopefully create in the Sagittarius ruled parts of our charts/lives over the next 13 months.

The Jupiter in Sagittarius blog would have given you some pointers on how best to start this process.

Now, with Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius, we are being given a gift by the cosmos.

A window of opportunity to clear the path for this Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.

Think of it like this.

When that Sagittarius New Moon rolls around next month, we want to plant the seeds of change and miracles in the Sag ruled parts of each of our lives, some of which will manifest over that lunar month (hopefully meaning 2019 starts off on a great note) and some which will manifest over the next year, through to the end of the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit in December 2019.

When you plant any seeds in the physical plane, you don’t tend to plant them without first preparing the land, tilling the soil, pulling out any weeds which might get in the way of your seeds growing into little seedlings, and then flowering further.

You create the right conditions for those seeds to flourish in.

It makes sense, right?

So too, we must be making sure conditions are perfect for the seeds we plant in the Sag ruled parts of each of our charts, to make the most out of the Jupiter in Sag transit.

And, we must make sure that we plant the right seeds.

The seeds which we want to flower into certain blessings in our lives.

This Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius gives us the PERFECT opportunity to make sure the land in which we are planting our seeds is healthy, weed free and can create a safe haven for our seeds to grow and then blossom.

It is no cosmic coincidence but rather a cosmic gift, that this Mercury retrograde starts a week after Jupiter moved into Sagittarius and ends around the Sagittarius New Moon!

This is a gift guys.

A gift which allows us to clear the path for blessings.

A gift of time in which to slow down, rest and review, reconsider our goals and reset ourselves.

A gift of time and space in which to ensure that not only is the land (in this case the Sag ruled parts of each of our lives) healthy, but also that the seeds we are planting are truly ones we want to see flourish.

So we need to look at this Mercury retrograde as a miracle making opportunity.

An opportunity to clear the path for miracles and manifestation.

Are you excited yet? I hope so!

Of course, there may be the usual Mercury mayhem, but we can even use that to our advantage by trying to understand what it is that the cosmos wants us to learn and to correct (and do all things RE in).

I set out below, underneath the Soulstrology zodiac guide, the Mercury Soulstrology Soundbath.

I highly recommend listening to this often during the Mercury retrograde. It can help you clear your mind, get present and connect to the higher vibrations of this transit.

It may also help you to do all things RE. It never fails to amaze me what clarity I get after listening to a soundbath and then journaling.

Try it! Let me know how you get on.

Happy miracle making Mercury retrograde!

Love,

Ambi x

Jupiter in Sagittarius November 2018 – December 2019: Time to get lucky

Ambi Sitham

jupinsag.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost weekend!

Much to celebrate in the cosmos as this week, because just after that Scorpio New Moon, planetary benefic and cosmic miracle maker Jupiter moved into Sagittarius where he will be for the next thirteen months!

Jupiter rules Sagittarius so he is at home in this position meaning he is at his most potent and powerful and we will feel his energies at their most powerful for the next 13 months as he moves through the Sagittarius ruled part of the zodiac.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius risings, this is a golden year ahead for you as Jupiter will transit your sun sign (the essence of who you are) and your rising sign (your identity, appearance, personal autonomy, how others view you).

But fear not, regardless of our zodiac sign, we are all going to get lucky in certain areas of our lives.

To see where this transit is taking place in your lives, check the Soulstrology zodiac guide below and read for both your Sun and Rising sign to see which areas Sagittarius rules in your chart.

Also, don’t forget to look at what, if any, planets you have in Sagittarius.

Those planets will also be getting a major boost from this Jupiter in Sagittarius transit too, so depending on the life areas and themes governed by those specific planets you will be able to tell what kind of energies to expect once Jupiter in Sag activates those planets!

Remember too that the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in the natural zodiac (religion, spirituality, philosophy, higher education, legal matters, foreigners, foreign people, places, travel, publishing) which applies to each of us, will also be getting a boost from good old Jupiter.

Now there is a lot to say about the specific aspects Jupiter in Sagittarius will be making to other planets next year and how best we can therefore each work with his transit and I will be diving much deeper into that in time to come.

But for now, I want you to review the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in your chart.

Look and see what you have manifested in these life areas so far, and importantly what you wish to manifest in them.

Look also to see what might need healing in those life areas too.

Remember healing makes space for us to manifest and receive and as much as Jupiter is a great miracle maker, people often overlook the fact that he is also a powerful healer.

Perhaps for you, or a loved one, the miracle next year is healing.

And perhaps that healing makes space for manifesting in time to come…

Next, think about how you can infuse the traits of Jupiter/Sagittarius into the life areas which Jupiter in Sag will be transiting.

By being like the thing we wish to have, we align with it and we can more effortlessly create what it is we desire.

Below are some of the (positive, as opposed to shadow!) traits and themes of Jupiter/Sagittarius.

  • Expansion.

  • Expansion of the mind and on the physical plane.

  • Can do mindset

  • Glass half full attitude

  • Optimism

  • Faith

  • Trust

  • Miracle mindset

  • Abundance mindset

  • Wealth

  • Compassion

  • Generosity

  • Spiritual mindset

  • Philosophical attitude

  • Bigger picture attitude

When reviewing the life areas ruled by Sagittarius in your unique chart ask yourself to what degree (if at all) you are adopting these traits in the Sagittarius ruled parts of your life (and indeed, in life in general).

In these beginning stages of this transit aim to adopt these traits and infuse these energies into your life and specifically the Sag ruled parts of life.

Maybe listen to the Soulstrology Jupiter Soundbath (link below for your ease) as you do this cosmic coaching for yourself so that the sounds and vibrations of Jupiter himself can help you on an energetic level to start this transit off on the right note.

It’s time to get lucky, so let’s expect miracles, for ourselves and our beloved world.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and will be back next week with more cosmic updates.

Love,

Ambi x

Uranus retrograde in Aries November 7 2018 – March 7 2019

Ambi Sitham

 Sometimes you gotta go back to move forwards

Sometimes you gotta go back to move forwards

Hello lovely ones!

Well, I don’t think I need to tell you all that it is a big week in the cosmos!

So much happening and all bunched within days of each other….

Always the way, huh?!

As you all hopefully remember, cosmic change agent Uranus moved into Taurus earlier this year in May.

He then turned retrograde in August (also in Taurus) and on the same day as the Scorpio New Moon he dances back into Aries for the next few months….

Now Uranus was in Aries from 2010 - 2018.

In the eight years of the Uranus in Aries transit we will all have experienced great upheaval in the Aries ruled parts of each of our charts and lives.

Ultimately this would have led to liberation and new beginnings but it wouldn’t have been without turmoil and upset.

Because that’s what Uranus does.

He loves to stir things up, pull the rug out from underneath us, in order to tip us into the future we desire. He truly is the cosmic disruptor!

Aries in the natural zodiac rules the self.

Our identity, personal autonomy and appearance.

How we present ourselves to others and how we appear to others.

It’s no cosmic coincidence that the selfie generation was birthed during Uranus (ruler of technology) in Aries (the self/appearance) !

Now we find that Uranus has retrograded back into Aries and will be there until next March.

We each have the next four months to revisit the Aries ruled parts of our charts and lives and ask ourselves the following questions.

  1. What shifts have taken place in the Aries ruled parts of life in my chart (see Soulstrology zodiac guide below) since 2010?

  2. What shifts have taken place in my appearance and identity, how I present myself to others and how others view me since 2010?

  3. What liberation and change have I experienced (in relation to the answers to questions one and two above)

  4. What final changes would I like to make in these areas of life (areas of life covered by questions 1 and 2 above)?

  5. How can I go about making these changes between now and next Spring?

Remember change starts within and then is birthed on the external plane….

I am sure most of you have experienced great shifts in the Aries ruled parts of each of your lives since 2010 (I know I have!) but what other shifts would you like to create?

The cosmos is giving us a beautiful opportunity these next four months and we should grab this opportunity and harness these energies to create that final liberation which pushes us into the future of our dreams.

More on this again in time….

Love,

Ambi x

Soulstrology Scopes New Moon Scorpio 2018

Ambi Sitham

IMG_0387.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon in Scorpio!

As you will know from reading the Soulstrology New Moon blog this New Moon calls us to forgive and make peace with people (including ourselves) as well as situations.

By doing so we are able to redirect energy which is either stuck in past situations or being projected or used in a negative way.

Through reclaiming this energy we can channel it for our highest good and the greatest good of all.

With this in mind, here are the general Soulstrology mantras for this Scorpio New Moon.

I trust that forgiveness is for the strong and soulful and I know that I am both

I know that forgiveness is not about right, or wrong, but about doing the right thing for myself

I believe that forgiveness sets you free and helps you to flourish

With this in mind, I choose to forgive myself and others

I know that forgiveness is not about forgetting what has happened but about letting go and transmuting energies for my highest good

At this New Moon I choose to engage this powerful tool of forgiveness to alchemize my life and manifest my dreams into fruition


Now onto the Soulstrology Scopes, which like last time come in the form of a channeled word for each sign.

Read for your Sun and Rising sign (if you know the latter) and play with the order of words so they make sense to you.

Perhaps listen to a Soundbath (I included Chiron below for your ease) when reading the mantras and your channeled word to allow the sounds and vibrations to help you understand who, or what situation you need to focus your forgiveness on so you can flourish.


SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES SCORPIO NEW MOON

Aries: MONEY

Taurus: RELATIONSHIPS

Gemini: WORK

Cancer: PLAY

Leo: FAMILY

Virgo: COMMUNICATION

Libra: POSSESSIONS

Scorpio: YOURSELF

Sagittarius: HEALING

Capricorn: WISHES

Aquarius: CAREER

Pisces: TRAVEL

Scroll to the bottom of the blog for easy access to the Chiron Soulstrology Soundbath.

Remember Chiron turns our wounds into wisdom and the fuel for success - just like forgiveness!

Wishing you all a healing, freeing, miracle making New Moon!

Love,

New Moon Scorpio November 2018: Forgiveness so you can flourish

Ambi Sitham

IMG_0373.PNG

Happy almost New Moon in Scorpio!

This New Moon takes place on Wednesday November 7 2018 at just after 8am PT here in Los Angeles (adjust for your timezone).

It falls at 15 degrees of the watery sign of Scorpio.

Check where Scorpio rules in your chart using the Soulstrology Zodiac guide to this New Moon below and if you are more of a Soulstrology pro then look for exactly where 15 degrees of Scorpio falls and any planets you have between 12 and 18 degrees of Scorpio as they will get triggered by this New Moon.

This Scorpio New Moon falls on a day when there is so much else happening in the cosmos too….

Uranus retrograde sashays back into Aries for the next few months (I have written a separate Soulstrology blog on this which will be available on 11/7) and the nodes move into the Cancer/Capricorn axis (this is significant but I will write on this properly in time to come as it isn’t of huge importance right at this second).

Last but not least, Jupiter - who has you all know has been in Scorpio since October last year, bringing healing, growth and hopefully some miracles to the Scorpio ruled parts of each of our lives -finishes his last transit of Scorpio for another twelve years and prepares to enter Sagittarius (Soulstrology blog on this dropping this Thursday!).

So there is lots happening which although not directly related to this New Moon still sets a pretty powerful backdrop to the Scorpio New Moon, although of course we have Venus retrograde and Mercury retrograde shadow bringing their somewhat muddled energies to the mix….

But for now, and the purposes of how best we can each work with this New Moon, lets turn to the Soulstrology theme for the New Moon - Forgiveness so you can flourish.

Scorpio as I am sure you all know is a sign knowing for being a powerful, intense sign and in spite of all its positive traits often gets a bad rap for some of its shadow traits - they are known (sometimes unfairly so!) for being vengeful and seeking revenge if they are wronged.

However, as the sayings go… anger and revenge may seem justified and may result in hurting others, but ultimately will only hurt us too…

Forgiveness is such a powerful act.

It is not for the weak, it is for the strong, the soulful, the cosmic warriors.

And it is also such a powerful manifesting tool

When we forgive others (and/or ourselves) we pull back that energy which has been leaked into anger and retribution, or regret (the latter particularly so when we are angry with ourselves and unable to forgive ourselves).

When this energy returns to us it can be channeled into the right direction so that we can manifest our desires and create the future we desire.

When you forgive, you in no way change the past, but you sure do change the future

Bernard Meltzer

The Scorpio ruled parts of each of our lives has received the assistance of great cosmic benefic Jupiter over the last year.

He has come in and shown us what needs healing, helped us heal, helped us grow and expand and in many cases brought miracles our way.

As we embrace this New Moon and set our intentions for the lunar month ahead we should also be thinking about this Jupiter in Scorpio transit and what it has brought us and how we can truly eek out the last day of Jupiter’s transit in Scorpio and the powerful energies of this New Moon to create the future we desire, by focusing on forgiveness.

Venus retrograde may have brought back the past in a painful way.

Issues around love, self-worth, money, may have arisen and made us realize that we had wounds which were not yet truly healed, wounds which are preventing us from receiving and manifesting our desires.

The past may have come knocking and with it brought up old hurts for final healing and/or closure.

All these issues may have made us realize where we are perhaps holding onto anger, where we feel regret, betrayal, a sense of righteous vengeance in some cases, ultimately where we are being a prisoner by our perception of events.

Now is the time to let it all go.

It doesn’t matter if you are right. It matters that you are prepared to let things go.

It matters that you are prepared to forgive yourself, others, G-d, the universe, whoever/whatever it is that has caused you pain.

It matters that you do this with every inch of your mind, body and soul so you feel that forgiveness reverberate through your body and it transmutes energy you’ve been holding onto and creates an energetic shift so you can go forwards and manifest the destiny of your dreams.

The cosmos assists us as always.

With the New Moon making a beautiful trine aspect to compassionate, spiritual Neptune in Pisces, we can harness those beautiful watery energies to transmute our feelings into those which truly serve us - those of forgiveness, compassion and trust.

At the time of the New Moon Venus in retrograde motion makes a tough opposition aspect to Uranus (who will at the time of the New Moon be retrograde in Aries).

This energy can be harnessed to heal our relationships.

No matter what, if we can view past or current relationship issues as two people playing out karma, then we can take back our power and control (all Scorpio themes) to release any hurts, anger and vengeance and in doing so create the space for what we do want to manifest in our lives.

Venus makes a beautiful sextile aspect to Mars.

This aids us in balancing those traditionally male and female energies of giving and receiving, of peace and war, of emotional love and connection and raw sexual energy.

It can help us balance those aspects within ourselves as well as in our relationships with others.

Today as the moon disappears from the night sky in preparation for the New Moon, take the time to think about all these themes and perhaps ask yourselves the following questions: -

  1. Where am I holding onto past hurts?

  2. Who do I feel vengeful towards?

  3. Who am I struggling to forgive (can be yourself, or others)?

  4. What am I trying to manifest in the Scorpio ruled parts of my chart?

  5. How can I infuse these themes of forgiveness into the Scorpio ruled areas of life in my chart so it can help me to make space to manifest?

Soulstrology Scopes with mantras will be dropping later this afternoon so keep an eye out for them.

In the meantime you can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to review the life areas being brought into the cosmic spotlight tomorrow and over the next lunar cycle.

Soulstrology Scopes Full Moon in Taurus

IMG_0382.PNG

Hello lovely ones!

Well, the Full Moon is almost upon us and I am sure you can all feel it….

I hope you’ve read the Full Moon blog and are reviewing the life areas ruled by Taurus in your unique chart.

With this Full Moon I have done something a little different with the Soulstrology Scopes.

There are general Soulstrology Scope mantras which you can use at this Full Moon regardless of your sign.

Then there is some cosmic coaching homework - questions each of you can ask yourself about the Taurus ruled life areas in your chart (remember to answer these questions in relation to the areas of life ruled by Taurus for both your Sun and Rising sign).

Finally there is a channeled word for each sign (read for both your Sun and Rising sign and read them together/as one almost to understand the message/theme of this Full Moon for your sign).

As always, listening to a meditation helps…..I am inserting the Pluto Soundbath at the end of this post as I feel it is the most pertinent to the general energies of this Full Moon (change!), however depending on what is going on with you and what arises at this Full Moon, you may wish to also listen to the Chiron and/or Earth soundbaths (you will be able to find them in the Soundbath section).


FULL MOON TAURUS OCTOBER 2018 MANTRAS

I embrace the cosmic energies of change

I am open to the unexpected, and choose a filter of curiosity, over fear

I trust that anything that occurs at this time has its purpose in the divine bigger picture

I chose to be grounded and rooted and do not allow any sudden news or events to overwhelm me but instead focus my energies on remaining grounded and peaceful

I know that the universe has my highest good in mind and that sometimes an ending or loss may be necessary to push me into the next chapter of life

With this in mind, I choose to believe that whatever happens at this Full Moon is for ultimately my highest good and the greater good


SOULSTROLOGY COSMIC COACHING

  1. Rate your level of happiness/satisfaction in relation to the Taurus ruled parts of your chart - (0 -10)

  2. Rate your level of happiness/satisfaction regarding your personal finances, income and material possessions (whether the latter is luxury items, a home, car, etc) - (0-10) keep in mind whether or not you feel a sense of freedom end ease when you give this rating.

  3. On a scale of 0-10 how free and liberated do you feel in relation to the Taurus ruled parts of life in your chart?

  4. How much do you feel your values are reflected in the Taurus ruled parts of life in your chart?

  5. On a scale of 0-10 how would you rate your self-esteem in the Taurus ruled parts of life in your chart?

The purpose of asking you to answer these questions is to get you to dig a little deeper and identify what you might like to release/let go of at this time and what may need healing/clearing.

You can also then make a release list based off the answers to these questions and burn it either the night before the Full Moon or on the day of the Full Moon itself, whenever feels more appropriate.

Onward to the one word Soulstrology Scopes and don’t forget to read your Sun and Rising signs together as it may make more sense that way. And play around with the order of the words so that together they make more sense to you.


SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES TAURUS FULL MOON


Aries: SEX

Taurus: YOU

Gemini: SECRETS

Cancer: FUTURE

Leo: SUCCESS

Virgo: EXPANSION

Libra: MONEY

Scorpio: RELATING

Sagittarius: WORK

I hope the Full Moon treats you all well and I hope you all have the strength to view any cosmic curveballs as a necessary part of your journey, which will ultimately liberate you and set you up for the next chapter of life.

Full Moon in Taurus October 2018: Expect the unexpected....

Ambi Sitham

 As far as Full Moons go, this is an intense one….

As far as Full Moons go, this is an intense one….

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Full Moon in Taurus!

This Full Moon takes place on Wednesday October 24th 2018 at 9.45am PDT (adjust for your timezone).

The Full Moon falls at 1 degrees of the earth sign of Taurus and is conjunct change agent Uranus who sits by the Full Moon at the critical degree of zero degrees of Taurus (Uranus went into Taurus in May this year and turned retrograde in August).

Hopefully you will all have read the Soulstrology insights into the Uranus in Taurus transit and how the transit of cosmic wild card change agent Uranus in earthy, grounded, fixed Taurus will shake up money and financial matters for each of us individually and globally, as well as of course shaking up the Taurus ruled parts of each of our lives….

Soulstrology tells us that even though Uranus moved into Taurus in May (in Taurus season) it is the events surrounding this Full Moon which will tell us what seed of disruption the cosmic change agent is planting in the Taurus ruled parts of each of our lives which will spark a revolution which will unfold over the next seven - eight years during the transit of Uranus in Taurus.

Full Moons as you all know by now, bring things to the surface.

It is as though matters which need to be brought to our attention are suddenly highlighted in the lunar spotlight.

Sometimes things can happen seemingly unexpectedly at Full Moons but really it is more of a case of things being revealed.

We can feel these issues on an emotional level (or others do) and things can boil up and bubble over in real life.

As a result we, or others, can feel blindsided and this can be an emotionally turbulent time.

Whenever you add the energies of Uranus into a Full Moon, it’s as though we are a lunar curve ball gets thrown our way at this time.

Soulstrology explains that whether this is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is dependent (as always!) on where we are on our soul’s journey, as well as how this Full Moon is impacting our unique chart.

*Note, the latter is not something we study in detail in our Soulstrology blogs as it would be impossible for me to download and interpret hundreds of charts, but it is something I hope that in time I am able to channel for you all so you can take your Soulstrology journey to the next level!*

Now, even though Taurus is an earthy grounded sign, it is also the sign of the five senses and rules all the physical sensations which accompany having a physical body as we walk this human existence in this lifetime.

I have my natal moon in Taurus and know this only too well!

Taurus is all about feeling those feels, whether it is visually, through sound, scent, touch or taste.

This can be a wonderful thing (enjoying physical life to the maximum) but can also be a very jarring thing, if what we are feeling is not grounded and solid (Taurus themes).

And, as I am sure we all know by now, Full Moons can often be anything but grounded and earthy.

In fact, they are a time when we need to get extra grounded and earthy in order to deal with the Full Moon feels!

With the cosmic curve ball of Uranus thrown into the mix of this Full Moon, it is undoubtedly a time where we should expect the unexpected.

Uranus rules change, disruption and the world turning upside down (the planet Uranus is on a unique axis tilt compared to all other planets!).

These are the themes which are at play at this Full Moon.

Added to this is the opposition aspect of Venus Retrograde in Scorpio who sits nearby to the Sun in Scorpio (the Sun is at 1 degree and Venus is at 4 degrees so they are close enough in the zodiac that we will feel this Venus retrograde themes and in some cases, lessons, at this Full Moon too!)

Oppositions, conjunctions and squares are all terms for tense celestial aspects which when at play during a Full Moon can make us feel that Full Moon (and the other planetary aspects) so much stronger than usual.

Venus Retrograde has been a doozy for many people.

It has brought up karmic tests, challenges and lessons.

In some cases it has made people realize how the past needs to be revisited and resolved before they can move forward.

Venus is almost halfway through her retrograde motion and therefore it is particularly poignant that she brings her energies to this Full Moon.

She is opposing both the Full Moon and Uranus and with this opposition we may have unexpected news regarding finances, creative projects, or our love lives at this time.

As I type this I can feel the collective groan as you all may read this.

But please remember that unexpected events are often necessary to take us to the next level of our lives.

If you have been on my email list for several years now (pre website, when I just used to send out an email manually) you will know that I have had several tough Uranus upsets in my life.

These have ranged from being blindsided, to having the rug pulled out from underneath me (resulting in me falling flat on my face) to having my world turned completely upside down.

It hasn’t always been pleasant…. but with the benefit of hindsight I can see how each Uranus upset had a purpose.

Even if it did throw my world into chaos, it ultimately was for my liberation and to change my life for the best.

You can expect these sort of themes to come up at this Full Moon.

Indeed, as the Soulstrology theme of this Full Moon says, to expect the unexpected…

Whether it is ‘bad’ or ‘good’ for each of us depends on so many factors (as mentioned above).

Regardless of what happens, we wouldn’t be wise to judge it as either, and rather would be better off taking a deep breath and being super grounded (think like a tree with its roots deeply embedded into the earth) and staying rooted until the Full Moon passes (by the weekend things should feel calmer).

We also need to take a much broader view of events at this Full Moon and understand that fundamentally what is happening is part of a bigger picture unfolding in our lives which will play out over the next eight years and lead each of us to completely different landscapes come 2026.

If we experience some type of loss at this Full Moon it is because through something ending, we are able to experience a new beginning.

Therefore it is a necessary loss, even if it is not one which we expected, or want.

If something comes to us unexpectedly at this Full Moon, it is because this thing (person or situation) is meant to come to us to switch the direction of our sails so we set sail on the right path, taking us to the shores our souls crave.

The Full Moon makes a beautiful grounding aspect to serious Saturn in Capricorn.

This is a good thing. A powerful thing.

It tells us that no matter what happens at this time, even if odd ball, out the blue, blind sided, curve balls or more, there is something to be gained - there is some structure to the chaos even if we can’t see or understand it.

Saturn in Capricorn is all about building strong foundations for lasting success.

With this can come seeming destruction of sorts (endings, losses) but as the saying goes, destruction is often the first step of creation…

Think about the themes ruled by Taurus in the natural zodiac as well as the life areas ruled by Taurus in your chart (Soulstrology zodiac guide is below, read for your Sun and Rising sign too if you know the latter).

Think about the areas of life in your unique chart which the cosmos is shining a light on and sit back, get grounded and simply allow the cosmos to illuminate what it wants you to know.

As always, the Full Moon feels are the most intense in the days leading up to the Full Moon (hello Full Moon insomnia, I have been up since 3am, argh!!) and this is the time to take extra good care of ourselves.

We must nurture and ground ourselves in soulful ways so that no matter what happens, we can stand firm and rooted like a strong Taurus tree and let the cosmic winds of change blow what it needs to our way….for our highest good and the greater good of all.

Soulstrology Scopes coming tomorrow, the day before the Full Moon.

For now, take good care of yourselves and get grounded!

Love,

Ambi x

Soulstrology Scopes New Moon in Libra October 2018

Newmoonlibrasoulstrologyscopes.PNG

Happy almost New Moon!

As always with any lunar cycle - New or Full - it’s a great time to engage in a ritual.

This month you may wish to carefully read both the Venus retrograde blog and the Libra New Moon blog before you make your manifesting list for the month ahead…..integrating those themes into your list.

Carve out some quiet time, light a candle, make your list.

I always like to do this after the New Moon itself, so will probably write my list on Tuesday morning.

I am doing something a little different for the Soulstrology Scopes this month with general mantras for everyone and a note for each sign.

Remember with the Soulstrology Scopes to read for both your Sun and Rising sign.

New Moon Libra October 2018 Mantras

I know that every relationship I have, whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is a teacher

With this in mind, I take the time to review each significant relationship and to glean the lessons for my soul’s growth

I know that every relationship I have is in some way a reflection of the relationship I have with myself

With this in mind I take the time to review the relationship I have with myself, and to heal those parts of myself which may be preventing me from enjoying happy relationships of all sorts

I trust that the relationships which are supposed to be in my life will remain and that those which are supposed to transform, or fall away are being divinely guided

I choose to be graceful and gracious, to not hold on too tight where I am not supposed to and instead to allow things to unfold as they are meant to

I choose to have faith that all that is unfolding in the arena of relationships is for my highest good and the greater good of all

SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES LIBRA NEW MOON OCTOBER 2018

ARIES/ARIES RISING Aries here is your chance to reset partnerships of all kinds - professional, platonic, romantic. Take time to review all the serious relationships in your life and the impact they are having on your career ambitions and goals. In what way are these relationships serving your higher self and the successes which will form part of your soul’s legacy?

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING Taurus your relationships at work are in focus right now, as well as the relationships with those you ‘serve’ daily whom you may feel like you are working for, even if it is not formal (pets and family members can come into this category!) Allow for transformation, endings and rebirths where appropriate.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING Gemini affairs of the heart come into the cosmic spotlight at this time as well as relationships with children in your life (yours, others, children you want to have). So too you are asked to tune into the relationship with yourself and your own creativity and self-expression. The winds of change seek deep transformation in all of these relationships.

CANCER/CANCER RISING Cancer you are asked to look at who, what and where you consider home. Your relationship with your family past, present and future. Partnerships of all kinds are in the cosmic spotlight and the cosmos is putting the pressure on you to make fundamental changes so you can enjoy better relationships at home and have the domestic life you desire.

LEO/LEO RISING Leo your relationship with siblings, neighbors and your local community is in the spotlight. A good time to review and reset these. So too is your relationship with your mind and ‘voice’. Ask yourself what role the above relationships play in your daily lifestyle, whether at work, or just your daily routine and how they may impact your health - mind, body and soul.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING Virgo your relationship with yourself - your self-esteem and your values and your finances is up for review as are romantic and creative relationships and endeavors. How does your self-esteem impact your love life and/or creative endeavors? The pressure is on for you to make breakthroughs in the relationship with yourself, and in turn with others.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING Libra this is your special annual New Moon. Your solar return New Moon where you can set intentions for not only the month ahead, but also the year ahead. Remember all of your relationships start and end with you. With your ruler Venus retrograde at this New Moon the more you can reset your relationship with yourself the more you can expect this year ahead to be life changing (in a good way) in the arena of relationships! Happy birthday to you!

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING Scorpio your relationship with your psyche is of deep significance at this time. The more you can understand and own the hidden parts of yourself, the better a relationship you can have with yourself and others. Go deep and don’t be afraid to lose parts of yourself which don’t serve you and/or relationships which don’t serve the highest good of all.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING Sagittarius your friendships are coming firmly into the cosmic spotlight at this time. A good time to review and reset when it comes to your tribe. Ask yourself how your friendships impact your self-esteem and whether they are truly aligned with your values. Let what is decaying die, so more aligned relationships can be enjoyed.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING Capricorn your relationship with yourself vis a vis your career and professional goals/ambitions is in the spotlight. How does your relationship with yourself impact your career and those you deal with professionally? Ask yourself what needs transforming, resetting and what can be let go of so you can flourish professionally.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING Aquarius what is your relationship with your inner student/ teacher? With higher education of all sorts, including spirituality/religion? How can you have a better relationship with yourself so you can enjoy better flow in these areas of life? Foreign people, places and legal matters come up at this time too. Review and reset!

PISCES/PISCES RISING Pisces this New Moon brings into focus the deepest of issues - sex, joint finances, ‘death’ and deep transformation. Look within at the relationship with yourself and the impact this has upon sex, joint finances (and projects) and merging with others. Look at your relationship with loss (death even) and deep transformation. It’s time for deep change which starts with you.

New Moon in Libra October 2018: Things fall apart so they can come together....

Ambi Sitham

newmoonlibra.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon in Libra…

Here we are on the cusp of the dark night of the Moon when the moon is barely visible to the naked eye and the sky is almost a clear canvas, setting us up for the New Moon.

At this time we can feel an emptiness, a void of sorts and some people report that they find the dark moon period more emotionally challenging than a Full Moon because of that feeling of emptiness… so if you are feeling those feels, that’s why!

As you will no doubt be aware, this New Moon is in Libra, and on Friday, Libra’s ruler Venus turned retrograde in Scorpio.

During her retrograde Venus will sashay back into Libra, over the course of this next lunation (aka lunar cycle).

Retrogrades are times for reflection, resetting and reviewing and hopefully most of you would have read the Venus retrograde blog to get an idea of the energies of this particular retrograde and themes for us to work on.

Retrogrades aren’t all bad news or doom and gloom, but I am sure most of you know that they can be challenging.

The fact that the ruler of this New Moon and next lunar cycle turned retrograde just prior to the New moon, combined with the fact that this New Moon has some tough astrological aspects explains the Soulstrology theme for this 2018 Libra New Moon.

More on this shortly….but first, remember that for each of us, regardless of our zodiac sign, this New Moon is drawing our attention to relationships of all sorts because Libra is the ruler of partnerships and close one to one relationships - from professional, to platonic, to romantic.

Open enemies also come under the domain of Libra, but are not necessarily often talked about but Soulstrology tells us that at this particular New Moon we need to be thinking about these ‘relationships’ too.

Open enemies can be people we are having an outright conflict with (lawsuits, etc) as well as people we are formally in competition with (our business competitors etc, maybe frenemies…).

So these are all themes for us to be thinking about at this New Moon as well as over the next lunar cycle.

As this New Moon falls at 15 degrees of Libra you can check exactly where this falls in your chart and any planets you have between 12 and 18 degrees of Libra which will be activated by this New Moon. Do this if you are more of a Soulstrology pro… and if you aren’t, don’t stress!

If you are more of a beginner or want a simpler approach, then please simply check the Soulstrology guide at the end of this blog and read for both your Sun and Rising sign to see the life areas which are being brought into the cosmic spotlight both at this New Moon and over the next lunation.

Remember that regardless of the house (and therefore areas of life) that this New Moon falls in, you need to be thinking about (and perhaps setting goals) in relation to relationships in the context of those areas of life.

It may be that you think about a relationship with a more intangible thing as opposed to a person.

For example, if the New Moon falls in your second house (personal finances, income, possessions, values, self-esteem) you may be thinking about your relationship with money, your relationship with yourself (your self-esteem) and your relationship to your values/value system.

I use the second house and the life areas as an example but you can apply this example to any house/areas of life.

Onward to why this New Moon is so challenging….

I want you to think back to the lunar eclipse at the end of January this year…remember the Leo lunar eclipse? (I do, as I had a car accident, yikes!)

Even though that was a Leo lunar eclipse and this is a Libra New Moon, there are many almost identical celestial aspects arising (most importantly between Neptune and Ceres) which means that the themes of that time are somewhat mirrored at this time.

In many ways issues you faced at that time (which was really the start of 2018) are ones which you may be able to REsolve, find REsolution in, REconcile, or REset - a la retrograde...

Now there is an intensity to this New Moon as a result of the New Moon squaring Pluto in Capricorn…

For the world at large this is about fairness, peace, harmony and the patriarchy……that tension between the desire for harmonious relationships, equality and fairness and the desire of the patriarchy, the powers that be to be top dog.

For them to maintain control (Pluto) of existing structures (Capricorn) and to retain power (Pluto) of the status quo of governance (Capricorn).

Big sigh….

Onward to us…for each of us this means that there is a tension between the Libra ruled part of our lives (relationships of all sorts plus the areas of life governed by Libra in our unique charts) and the existing status quo (Pluto in Capricorn - plus the life areas governed by Capricorn in our unique charts).

Squares are tense astrological aspects which create conflict.

If you imagine two people squaring off against each other, it is a similar thing going on with the life areas ruled by Libra and Capricorn in our charts - a tense squaring off, things reaching a breaking point, and maybe even a falling out of sorts….

To add to this tension at the New Moon is another square between Mars and Venus.

Traditionally Mars and Venus represent the male and female archetypes.

Mars being the masculine energy.

The raw energy of desire and power - leadership, sex, war, pure powerful manifesting energy - what has always been considered a more masculine energy.

Venus being the feminine energy.

The energy of love, beauty and receptivity - peace, romance, creativity and the more receptive, flowing, harmonious energy.

It literally feels like a tug of war between male and female energies and archetypes (and interesting that this is taking place at this time when in America certainly all of these themes are being played out on a wider, public stage).

But what about us as individuals? How does this play out and what can we do with these energies?

For us these tense square aspects can be forcing us to see the friction and incompatibility within the existing structures (Pluto in Capricorn) of our relationships (New Moon in Libra).

It can force things which need to fall apart and ‘die’ to do so (Pluto rules death and endings of sorts).

It can help create a rebirth of certain relationships where appropriate (Pluto also rules rebirth and Venus retrograde can certainly bring reconciliations and rebirths to relationships of all sorts).

But we need to find some sort of equanimity and harmony between the dynamics of our relationships with others - whether we are male/female - or however we identify - and regardless of the gender combination of relationships with others we are trying to find balance in.

In order to do this we need to find that balance first and foremost within ourselves.

Of the Mars and Venus energies, balancing the more masculine energies and the more feminine energies (all themes as above).

When we are doing all of this, we may find that certain dynamics (and relationships) have to fall apart to be reborn, a la Pluto in Capricorn.

We may find that others need to be allowed to disintegrate because they no longer truly serve us (or, where appropriate, the other person).

We also might find that certain parts of us - how we operate and certain traits we have, are what need to fall away or be recreated so we can enjoy a better relationship with ourselves and others.

We must keep in mind that whatever is occurring for each of us over this New Moon (and the next six weeks of Venus retrograde) and whatever falls apart, is falling apart for a good reason - for a higher purpose, and ultimately for our highest good.

Now you may be reading this and thinking….well, this feels very Full Moony and a bit heavy, but this is a New Moon, aren’t I supposed to be setting intentions?

Yes this New Moon and lunar cycle does have a more heavy feeling that most New Moons and lunations, but that’s not a ‘bad’ thing!

It has the potential to be hugely transformative and powerful (good ole Pluto in Capricorn) and to bring us more harmony and equality in all of our relationships (and the life areas ruled by Libra in our unique charts).

Our intentions at this New Moon should be focused on all of the relationships in our lives, the life areas ruled by Libra in our unique chart, the relationships in those life areas (whether with a person or a theme) and of course, the most important relationship of all - with ourselves.

For now, in the dark moon phase, take a look at your chart.

See where this New Moon falls exactly or look at the Soulstrology zodiac guide below and the life areas ruled by Libra in your unique chart and think about the Soulstrology themes and how these can be applied to your life.

Soulstrology Scopes and mantras coming soon….in time for the New Moon itself…

Love,

Venus Retrograde October 5 - November 16 2018: Valuing yourself so you can be valued

Ambi Sitham

Venusretrograde.PNG

Hello lovely ones, I hope October is treating you well thus far….

So here we are, on the cusp of Venus Retrograde which begins officially this Friday October 5 2018 at 10 degrees of Scorpio and ends on November 16 2018 at 25 degrees of Libra.

Hopefully you will have all read the Venus in Scorpio - a prelude to the retrograde blog (posted September 10).

The last few weeks may have given you some insight as to what to expect from this particular Venus retrograde.

The slippery shadow period tends to do that as it brings to the surface the issues which then prove to be the crux of our retrograde experience.

If nothing appears to have happened so far then so be it.

But that doesn’t mean that nothing will pop up over the retrograde itself.

Remember, all these retrogrades are is an opportunity to reset ourselves in a particular area of life, or with regards to particular issues.

They are not a punishment. Even though, I will admit that sometimes they can feel that way!

So what themes will be coming up for each of us?

Well, regardless of our zodiac sign we need to know that all the themes ruled by Venus will be in the cosmic spotlight.

Love, abundance, creativity, beauty and socializing.

How we love.

Who we love.

How we receive love.

How we express ourselves.

Our artistic selves.

Our attitude towards beauty and our image.

Our social life.

What we do for pleasure (beauty, creativity, love)

Our relationship with receiving abundance (both love, finances and other forms of abundance).

With Venus retrograde in Scorpio and then Libra, the following themes also come up.

Scorpio

  • Sex and everything about it.

How we do it, when we do it, if we are doing it, if we aren’t doing it, and of course who we are doing it with (or not).

  • Joint finances (debts, loans, inheritances, taxes, investments, investors, mortgages, finances we hold with any other - be it a bank or a loved one)

  • What lies beneath the surface - psychological issues - around all of the above

  • Transformation - regarding all of the above, whether we are prepared to do it, how we are prepared to do it.

  • Death/endings/rebirth - regarding all of the above, what needs to die, what needs to end, what needs to die in its current format so it can be reborn

Libra

  • Relationships and partnerships of all kinds - personal, professional, romantic

  • How we interrelate with others (including co-dependency issues, energy exchanges etc)

  • How we handle conflict

  • How we socialize, who we socialize with etc

  • How we make decisions (or not)

  • Our relationship with ourselves

The above will give you lots of journal prompts to go inwards and ask yourself questions (and answer them honestly!) about these areas of life.

But remember that for each of us the Venus Retrograde will be taking place in a different part of our charts (see the Soulstrology zodiac guides below) so in many ways we can apply the general Soulstrology theme for this Venus Retrograde to the areas of life in our unique charts which are being impacted.

Asking yourself the following questions about the Scorpio and Libra ruled parts of your chart (read the guide for both your Sun and Rising sign).

Am I receiving fully in these areas of life?

Am I experiencing harmony fully in these areas of life?

Do I feel I shine both inwardly and outwardly in these areas of life?

Do I truly value myself in these areas of life?

Am I truly valued by others in these areas of life?

Am I expressing myself fully in these areas of life?

If we do not value ourselves properly, we cannot be properly valued by others and by life itself.

Like a mirror, life is reflecting back to us what we truly think about ourselves….

So we must value ourselves so we can be truly valued…

Now, I will be writing to you all more on this Venus retrograde but in the meantime here are a few tips and do’s and don’ts of sorts for this Venus retrograde.

  • Don’t panic. Easier said than done I know….but if life, creative matters, finances or your love life takes a sudden topsy turvy change, just sit tight and ride it out…

  • Do look at what comes up, even if painful, and do dive deep into it, not looking at the external situation (or pointing the finger at the other) but looking within at the internal circumstances which may have created the external situation

  • Don’t make a sudden decision on love, creativity or financial matters - if you do, you may change your mind once the retrograde is over

  • Do be open to reconciliations. Even if you need to reconcile to know it isn’t quite right, be open to returning to a past love, whether that is for final closure or a fresh start

  • Don’t have a sudden image change (or get work done to yourself - no judgment at all by the way - but this isn’t the right time for minor or major cosmetic enhancement!) as you may regret it afterwards

  • Do review your wardrobe and consider a rehaul, not necessarily filling it back up but more emptying it out of things which no longer ‘fit’ you.

  • Don’t make big, expensive purchases, you may regret them in time to come

  • Do recommit to an existing love, creative project or financial endeavor

  • Don’t get overly gung ho about a new love interest who comes during this time. Yes it can work out because if this is your person, it’s your person. But only the end of year (once the shadow is over) will determine that. So enjoy but be cautiously optimistic!

Whew, that’s lots for you all to work with but I am going to be back with more over the retrograde….just to help you all get the most out of it.

In the meantime feel free to write comments (only our Soulstrology gang see them, this is protected content so not a public forum) and I will answer your questions and comments as best I can.

And do listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath or two.

Whether it is Chiron for healing, Earth for grounding, Pluto for endings/rebirth or good ole Venus and Earth (the one I put out at the Fall Equinox) they will all help you to ground, go within and find the answers.

We all deserve to be valued. But as with everything, it starts with us, so value yourself so you can be valued.

Ps if you’re in LA, come join me this Friday at Wanderlust for a Soulstrology Soundbath as Venus turns retrograde and prepare for the New Moon!

Love,

Pluto direct September 2018: The purpose of power...

Ambi Sitham

Pluto Direct.png

Hello lovely ones!

I hope this finds you all well and having survived that intense Aries Full Moon…

So here we are in the season of Fall with a new month around the corner and power player Pluto turning direct this Sunday September 30th at 18 degrees of Capricorn.

As you all probably know by now, Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and has been wreaking havoc in all things Capricorn related in the wider world and in the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our lives.

We are over midway through this cycle and still in the flux of real change when it comes to the powers that be - governments, big banks, the patriarchy - ‘authorities’ of all kind (all under Capricorn’s rule).

By 2024 we will have collectively birthed an entirely new era across the world at large and in the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our lives.

In 2020 when there is a stellium of planets in Capricorn, we will have a hint as to what this new era looks like - both individually and collectively.

Until then it is our jobs to pro-actively co-create our desires with the cosmos.

Many of you may recall from the Pluto retrograde blog earlier this year that the Soulstrology theme for this Pluto retrograde was ‘Power comes from within’.

So hopefully you would have all been (at some point in the last five months) working on creating power from within, in a soulful way which can then be expressed outwardly and may lead to ‘power’ or ‘status’ on the physical plane, but is ultimately soulful power.

Now as Pluto turns direct and picks up momentum, the Soulstrology theme is the purpose of this power.

Each of us are asked to tune into the true purpose of power and status in our lives.

Power is a privilege.

And privileges are not to be utilized solely for our own purpose (or abused in anyway) but rather to be used carefully for a higher purpose.

As Voltaire said,

With great power comes great responsibility

Soulstrology tells us that personal power bestows us with the ability to manifest many blessings in our lives but those blessings can turn into curses if we are not careful.

To be ‘careful’ in this sense is to have consciousness. It is to have humility.

It is to embrace power but to use it carefully, for highest good and the greater good of all.

As Pluto retraces his steps in the zodiac (and in the Capricorn ruled parts of our charts - from 18 degrees back to 21) we may experience a shift in our personal power in the Capricorn ruled parts of our charts.

Of course we all have our goals and dreams and want to manifest them and it may well be that as our personal power is strengthened things we have worked hard towards start to fall into place.

This is to be celebrated!

But with consciousness.

Checking in with ourselves as to our motivations, as to whether the use of our power, our status is really for our highest good and the greater good of all.

Power can be a very positive thing, if used carefully and with consciousness.

If not, then as we see with the patriarchy and awful situations in this country and around the world, power is poisonous. It can poison others and eventually the power player too…

Check for exactly where you have 18-21 degrees of Capricorn in your chart (as well as any planets you may have in Capricorn around 16-23 degrees as they will have been ‘activated’ by this Pluto retrograde and now direct) to see the life areas being highlighted for you, where you may experience a shift in power, but where you must remind yourself of the purpose of power.

For an easier way of checking in, simply check the Soulstrology zodiac guide below (and remember to read for both your Sun and Rising sign).

May we each experience a shift in power but may we each use our personal power with consciousness, for our highest good and the greater good of all.

May the blessings we manifest bring only goodness to our lives and those of others.

And so it is.

Love,

Ambi x

Soulstrology Scopes Full Moon in Aries September 2018

AriesSoulstrologyScopes.PNG

Happy (almost) Full Moon lovely people!

I hope it is being good to you and you are working with the powerful energies for your highest good…

These Soulstrology Scopes are mantras or affirmations of sorts to help guide you to work with the energies of this Full Moon.

Read for your Sun and Rising sign if you know it.

You can use the general mantra as a meditation of sorts or even just to keep in mind over the Full Moon period.

You can also incorporate the Mantras into a release list (you know how much I love my burn and release lists!) or a Full Moon ritual of sorts.

Onto which, you have a new Soulstrology Soundbath (check the Fall Equinox post) with the sounds and vibrations of Venus and Earth gongs.

My advice is to listen to the Chiron Soulstrology Full Moon soundbath followed by the Venus and Earth soundbath.

The first will be healing, the second grounding and harmonizing.

Onwards to the mantras….

Love,

Full Moon in Aries September 2018: Facing our fears

Ambi Sitham

FullMoonAriesSept2018.png

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Full Moon…

Monday’s Full Moon falls at 2 degrees of Aries with the moon opposing the Sun at 2 degrees of Libra and takes place at just before 8pm PT on September 24 (adjust for your timezone).

As always, check where Aries rules in your unique chart and specifically where you have two degrees of Aries and any planets between zero and five degrees of Aries as they too will be triggered by this Full Moon.

If this feels a bit too complicated for you then just read the Soulstrology zodiac guide below for your Sun and Rising sign as it will tell you the life areas being highlighted in the lunar spotlight.

Now this is an intense and powerful Full Moon which can certainly have everyone feeling all the Full Moon feels….

As the Soulstrology theme for this Full Moon suggests, the celestial aspects at the time of this Full Moon will bring all our fears up to the surface.

This is thanks to the close placement of Chiron who sits at what is known as the karmic degree of Aries (karmic degrees are either at the end or the beginning of a sign - so at 29 degrees or zero degrees of a sign).

As you probably know by now, Chiron is the wounded healer who brings all our wounds to the surface so they can be transformed into light, into wisdom and indeed the fuel for our soulful success.

In Aries he represents the self.

Our identity, appearance and personal autonomy.

How others view us and how we interact with others in terms of the image we chose to portray of ourselves to others.

Aries also rules how we go about manifesting our desires, how we deal with conflict, challenges and how we are a leader in our own right (Soulstrology says we are all leaders).

With Chiron’s close placement to the Full Moon his energies are such that they may bring our wounds (in relation to the above Aries ruled themes as well as the areas of life ruled by Aries in our unique charts) directly to the surface.

This can result in us truly having the Full Moon feels and feeling all of our wounds, even those we have tried to suppress.

This can be painful, but it has a purpose.

We can only truly heal things that we allow ourselves to feel.

We can avoid feeling certain emotions, or suppress them, but when we do that and keep them bottled up, it’s as though we are poisoning ourselves….

Eventually it will make us unwell and result in us experiencing dis-ease of the mind, body and soul.

Feeling our deepest wounds can be terrifying.

But in truth feeling our wounds and allowing ourselves to feel all the shadow emotions is only terrifying to our ego.

It is terrifying to that part of ourselves that wishes to maintain control and that is under the illusion that we have control and wants to maintain the status quo.

But here is the thing. You don’t heal unless you feel.

It’s as simple as that.

However brutal it may be, we must feel our wounds and face our deepest fears (more on this shortly) in order to release that negative energy and make space within our energetic beings and in our lives.

To add to the potent celestial cocktail forming in the skies is a square aspect by the Full Moon to Saturn.

As we know Saturn is the cosmic taskmaster and although he does reward our efforts (when we do the practical work to create strong foundations in our lives) his shadow is fear and limitations (there is a reason why Saturn has a ring around him!).

This tense square aspect of the Full Moon (and Chiron) to Saturn exacerbates the energy of fear and wounds.

It can have us thinking the worst (the shadow of Saturn is pessimism) and can make us feel as though our fears and wounds are our reality and that we are unable to overcome them.

To add to this energy is an opposition aspect of the Full Moon to Mercury.

Mercury rules our minds and communications and at this time it can be very difficult for us to be of sound mind - to be thinking clearly and communicating in a way which serves us and others.

Mercury also squares Saturn at this time exacerbating the feelings of pessimism and fear and even making us feel a tad depressed.

There is a distinctly karmic feel to this Full Moon with aspects made to the South Node of the Moon (past life baggage and karma) who sits alongside the ruler of the Full Moon - Mars (conflict and aggression).

You may be thinking yikes and if so, I don’t blame you!

However, as we all ought to know by now, there is always a duality to all aspects - even tough ones.

The connection between the Sun, Moon and the South node is a powerful opportunity to finally release old karma.

But we have to face it (the tough part of the aspect) in order to change, or release it.

The beautiful trine connection between Saturn (in Capricorn) and Uranus (in Taurus) gives each of the opportunity to break free from limiting beliefs and indeed situations.

For some of us this may manifest as finally letting go of old wounds, of having the courage to face our fears and dissolve them.

For others this will be about having the courage to face certain fearful situations (and relationships/people) in their lives and leave them behind in order to embrace a new chapter of life.

Some of us may find this Full Moon a powerful time of things coming to fruition.

Perhaps we have worked on some of these issues.

Perhaps we have faced our fears, tackled and healed our wounds and now the energy is being transmuted into light and positivity which manifests some of our most heartfelt desires.

Either way, we must know that the lunar spotlight will bring up what we need to see, hear, feel at this particular juncture of our soul’s journey for our freedom (Uranus) and for our long term soulful success (Saturn).

We must be brave enough to look at what unsettles us. To face our fears. To feel our wounds.

And to transform them by first accepting them and then letting them pass through us which will allow their energy to shift in a way that ultimately serves us.

I don’t know who said this but it is such an on point quote for this Full Moon,

The only thing to fear, is fear itself

And of course as the poet and teacher Rumi says,

The wound is the place where the Light enters you

Feeling fear and being wounded are parts of life which none of us can escape.

We cannot control all that happens to us.

But we can choose how we respond.

May we each have the courage at this time to face our deepest fears and wounds.

May our courage be rewarded by the transformation of wounds in our lives resulting in us becoming wiser, stronger and fueling our future successes and happiness.

And so it is.

With so much love,

Ambi x
