Another Uranus in Taurus theme related…

“The “good life” in the media is about owning lots of stuff, jet-setting around the globe to go shopping and expanding everything from houses, to kitchens, businesses to economies. The good life is never depicted as a life of ample time – time to play the cello, write, plant flowers, or sit around doing nothing but chatting with friends. Indeed, the media has taught us to equate owning lots of products with a high standard of living, as opposed to growing other aspects of our life such as cultivating skills and friendships.”

I came across this article in the Womankind magazine and really enjoyed the read. It makes me think of Uranus in Taurus potential changes in store for us, hopefully, collectively!

I am also reading a book on Hygge which is proving to be super interesting and inspiring. Will perhaps write more on that another time. For now here is the link to the whole article I’ve mentioned above:

Quick astro catchUP

I know, it’s been so long since I publish my last post here.. January has gone so fast and I was feeling so busy, I actually have been feeling so busy lately.

I also just had the realisation, as I’m writing this, that I’ve been experiencing what I can best define as a “change of focus” in my life.

The astrological signature reflecting this change is the coinciding move to another house in my horoscope from transiting Saturn, Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter, all happening roughly at the same time.

Saturn has moved into the 2nd house, Pluto has moved into the 3rd house, Jupiter has moved into the 12th house and precisely tomorrow, Uranus is moving into the 6th house of my natal chart.

What do I feel?

Well, I’ve been definitely feeling the need to adapt myself to a new sense of focus. Is like my energies, represented by the archetype of each one of these planets, are going through some sort of rearrangement concerning where I manifest them.

And for this reason is also being a little difficult to pin them down or to take much action.

For instance I do sense a lot of the material “re solidifying” represented by Saturn entering my second house.

And I am enjoying actually.

After a very long time (at least maybe 3 years?) I decided to treat myself with a brand new pair of shoes. Sounds silly, but I had forgotten how good it feels not only to be able to choose your own style of footwear (which may sound a bit superficial) but also to have shoes your size! I don’t have to triple sock anymore!

This very simple act (of getting new shoes) have also enabled me to connect more with the ground and I have the feeling that I won’t have as much pain on my knees or back after being on my feet for long hours anymore..

To me, this sounds like a very good reflection for the symbolism of transiting Saturn entering the second house!

There is much, much more for me to write regarding this multiple change of houses by the transiting planets, but I can’t right now. I’m at a cafe and ready to go back home for my therapy session over Skype.

I’m also reading “The moment of astrology” by Geoffrey Cornelius and having a lot of insights that I would like to share in another post soon. This in an amazing and most valuable work on the urgent need for a new way of viewing and practicing astrology.

I would also like to apologise for not being able to read much of your work lately as well (for the blogs that I follow) or comment on your stuff. I will be back and more present soon (I’m also on the verge of getting a laptop again!!!!!!!!! No more struggling to write in a tiny tablet!)

Much love to you all ♡

Transiting Nodes

Have you ever noticed what happened when transiting North node hit something on your chart?!

Transiting node now is just about to make a conjunction to my natal Sun, and regarding the frustrations I wrote about yesterday, I have a good feeling about it.

The lunar nodes are considered to have a connection with karmic lessons and spiritual growth, and I have been observing it’s reflection when it touched something important in my chart.

In my experience there is usually someone else involved.

When transiting North Node made a conjunction with my Ascendant, Moon and Venus (in different occasions) I met someone that somehow taught me a relevant lesson regarding the principle in question.

When the nodes transited my ASC-DSC axis I met the guy who I shortly after would have my Saturn return intense experience with. Encountering this person has taught me lessons in so many levels that it is still hard to pinpoint.

I also see the karmic intensity of it by the fact that transiting South Node was right on my DSC. (If there is such a thing as past lifes, I certainly have met him before)

The two other occasions were a little lighter.

With North node transiting my natal Moon I got reunited with my past lover, the one that had a very relevant role in me acting upon my decision to leave my life in London behind (culminated with the first square from Pluto to my Moon in early 2015).

Then when transiting North Node was conjuncting my natal Venus I met a very interesting (not in a romantic way) polish man in Thailand, that gave me many insights into my love life (not only) and who gave me a peculiar and intense healing session.

That was quite powerful and somehow prepared the ground for the  intense healing experience I’ve had during my yoga course.

Now transiting North Node is just about to hit my natal Sun, in a moment when I’ve been feeling deflated and longing for more opportunities to express my solar principle.

(I’ve been reading “The Luminaries” by Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas and getting a lot of inspiration from it, couldn’t recommend more! Do read it if you want to get a deeper understanding of the solar and lunar function in the and astrological chart.)

Will keep my eyes wide open now..

Reminder

Mostly I’m writing this post now as a reminder to myself.

I’m in Clapham Common having a coffee at the place I used to work before leaving everything behind. I actually just finished my second coffee. I really shouldn’t have done this as I’m now feeling a bit hyper. At the yoga school coffee is one of the things they tell you to quit.

I’m having my period in about a week, (I’ve been having my period around the full moon for quite a while), and feel strange. My PMS isn’t nearly as strong as it used to be before consistently practicing yoga like I’ve been doing everyday for the past 2 months and a half, but I can still feel it. The practice of yoga is not only decreasing my levels of PMS, but also providing me with detachment. That is truly great. Is like I can, instead of just becoming instantly possessed by it, stare at the more destructive parts of myself in the face.

Anyways, the more infantile part of me, the one that was desperately in love with that young man over a year ago, has been actively throwing emotions at me today. I’m still quite centered though. I’m not necessarily felling cheerful, but I’m peaceful.

This situation reminds me of the realisation I’ve had after coming back from Bristol last week.

The Pluto transit to my Moon is still an ongoing process, with the longest hit taking place pretty much during the whole second half of this year. I don’t like predictions and I strongly believe that thoughts create reality, but after I came back from Bristol I realised that my confusion and search for home is still going to linger on for a bit longer. The feeling of contentment and belonging that I’ve had during my last two weeks in Thailand whilst being super busy with astrology was just a taster. It was just a preview of, more or less, how my life can be once Im done with all of the detox and transformation expected from an intense plutonic time.

I feel that I really need to keep reminding myself of that in order to work constructively with whatever is being born within me. And the transit is perhaps only a reflection.

I like to think like that. I believe it to be more empowering and helpful in the cultivation of patience, a fundamental virtue in the process of maturation.
