Moon In Sagittarius ~ Jupiter Influence Sun. 4-12-09 through Tue. 4-15-09

The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius from

2 PM (EDT) Sunday


Through Tuesday


The Moon moves into Capricorn in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday, April the 15th, 2009.

The Lunar Sag/Jupiter influence is present Sunday afternoon & all day Monday and Tuesday, 4-12, 4-13 & 4-15-2009.

The glyph for Sag is the arrow -- the arrow traveling as fast as the speed of light out into the cosmos -- exuberance. The arrow asks, "What is my place in this cosmos? Where am I going?" These are Saggitarian questions. The gypsy, the student, and the philosopher are three destinies of Sagittarius. With all three, the mind projects itself outward toward a new horizon [see image above] in order to realize the ultimate meaning of life and find one's place in the cosmos. Sag sees no clear ending, only the endless process. The search for meaning associated with Sag. energy has to do with expanding the mind and searching for truth--the vision quest.

This kind of travel is associated with Sag, thus the connection to "travel" which connects to the mundane astrologer's interpretation. Education, travel and expansion of awareness--being open to "foreign" ways of thinking. The Sag energy is also very fond of freedom. Without freedom, how can there be the pursuit of these goals?

Sagittarius searches for the personal god and faith in one's own ideals. Sag searches for his own god no matter what pressures are brought to bear by consensus society. Sag asks us to determine our own belief and establish our own faith based on our own ideals.

Its no surprise then that Sag is often associated with intuition and the right brain activities of consciousness. Forget what everyone else in society tells you... what do YOU believe? Search for you own personal meaning! That's what Sag energy encourages.

The mood of the day will be expansive -- after all, Jupiter (the big planet!) rules Sagittarius. Today, as I write this, it's Easter Sunday, the christian holiday.

The emotional weather for this Sunday afternoon as well as tomorrow and Tuesday will likely be upbeat, optimistic, and lively and expansive thinking will very likely be prominent. Putting christian rituals aside, it's generally a time wherein searching for answers to the big questions of life would be natural. Outspoken-ness can be evident today too... Sag energy sometimes speaks without forethought.

Jupiter is big and likes lots of excess so when the Moon is in Sag, over-indulgence in almost any area can also be evident.

How attached are you to your beliefs? There may be a challenge in this area and arrogance and self-righteousness from those who are extremely attached to their version of truth--or the version that was handed to them by religious authorities. Think: bible thumpers.

When the Moon is in Sagittarius it can be a good time to ask your soul, the angels and higher guiding light forces to help you to release addictions to the need to be right and any other excessive-type behavior. Ask for help to be opened up to wider views and perspectives--growth oriented influences and advanced ideas. Affirm that your mind and your spirit are continuing to open and unfold as you release your need to be right. There's that song that comes to my thinking here. Part of the lyrics are "...expand your mind". Probably a song from the 60's. Anyway...

I'd like to think that the real expansion we are seeking is spiritual versus dogmatic and religious. This is the territory of Jupiter and Sagittarius.

A visual is to imagine your body like a sponge taking on more and more white light until you are glowing and radiant -- light has no religion, no dogma. To make the most of Sagittarius energy, fill your body and brain with light and imagine a many-pedaled lotus flower opening up at the center of your forehead. Realize there are many paths to the Divine while you think of something you are doing on a small scale now that you'd like to expand in a big way. Send an inexhaustible stream of light to that idea bubble and watch it grow and grow, knowing that the growth of your mind and spirit is ever unfolding.

The Moon moves into Capricorn Wednesday 4-15-09 and by then we will have covered the entire zodiac. I started a month ago with the ever-changing Moon as it moved through every sign of the zodiac for a 30 day period. This was the 2nd time I went through the Moon signs on this blog. Maybe next I will work through the houses one by one.

Wishing you a mind expanding day!

Moon in Scorpio Emotional Weather Report 4-10 to 4-12-09

Moon in Scorpio April 10th Friday 5:23 am until April 12th Sunday 2:00 PM (EDT) 2009.

Full Moon was April 9th, 2009

I'm late posting this; the Moon went into Scorpio yesterday.

Let's get started...

Scorpio Moons are strong ones and its said that they can override the Sun. So feelings, needs, instincts and responses will be strong when the Moon transits Scorpio.

If we don't take time to understand what (many times) are our unconscious responses to life, we can end up feeling needy and unfulfilled. We should make an effort, therefore, to understand what each Moon sign is all about. The Moon is about nurturing. I like saying "the hungry Moon".

Aquarius Moons are hungry for space and freedom, Cancer Moons are hungry for that connection to their roots, Virgo Moons are hungry for the comfort and predictability of routine and Gemini Moons are hungry for change, variety and lots of data/information.
What is the Moon hungry for when it transits through the constellation of Scorpio?

(By the way, you can translate these transiting Moon archetypes informational pieces to a Natal Moon too.)

Before I go into it, let it be said that some people are more sensitive to the Moon and its daily fluctuations than others. Lunar "types" of people are Cancer Suns (Moon children) and anyone born during the Full Moon or the New Moon.

These little Moon Emotional Weather reports can be useful because even if "you" aren't sensitive to the Moon, it can help to know what particular type of mood or emotional weather will be predominant in the general public. So if the current Moon transit doesn't affect you face on, you will still be affected indirectly by having to cope with the energy of the masses--others.

We're currently on the tail end of a Full Moon--the Lunar influences of a full Moon are known to affect us 3 days prior to a Full Moon and 3 days after the exact Full Moon. Emotions that build up through the monthly cycle tend to peak and release around the time of the Full Moon.

So the Moon in Scorpio is connected to Pluto. Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio. This influence in the Moon can be brooding, vindictive and resentful, but it doesn't have to be. Scorpio is a water sign and the Moon in Scorpio runs deep emotionally. When the Moon is in Scorpio it is a good time for self-healing and to think those "deep" Soul thoughts. Scorpio is a probing and deeply psychological sign so the Moon is Scorpio is a good time for meditation and examining your own motives or even the motives of others. Trust issues may come up when the Moon is in Scorpio and any old soul memories of betrayal will likely be re-stimulated for healing and clearing. Of course, it wouldn't be fair to Scorpio to leave out sensuality and just plain ole' sex; but watch for power plays (Pluto ruling Scorpio is about power) and manipulation and trust issues.

Also this wouldn't be a good time to push people to confide in you--Scorpio loves privacy, secretiveness and mystery. Generally people may not be in a self-revealing mood. Again, people (generally speaking) may be suspicious of one another; you may have to demonstrate your trustworthiness.

The Moon in Scorpio can help you to understand the deeper levels of any situation and of your own or other people's emotions. The emotional climate of the Moon in Scorpio can be summarized with one word: intense!

To work with the higher side of this energy, release resentments, past hurts and any betrayals or losses that are stored in the emotional body.

Pluto/Scorpio is about transformation (a large part of this energy IS transformative) so perhaps if you can work with cooperating with any energy that is coming forward for the purpose of transformation, this would a very positive thing to do. Think: Phoenix rising transformed from the ashes. Think of parts of your life that you would like to see healed and call on your soul to help you be aware of what has been repressed or hidden so that you can experience the power that comes from knowledge!

Tuesday Evening 4/7/09 at approx. 11:30 pm (EDT) the Moon moves out of the Virgo Constellation and into Libra, remaining there until about 4:30 am (EDT) on Friday 4/10/09.

General Emotional Weather Forecast for the next few days....

Essentially through the full days of Wednesday and Thursday April 8th and 9th, the Moon is in Libra. Let's just talk about the Moon itself before we combine with the Libra energy.

The function of the Moon is to help us to respond to (be responsible for) our emotions and to develop the ability to 'feel'. A few posts ago, when the Moon was in Cancer, I posted some information about working with the emotional body--learning from it. Emotions help us develop our Soul and feelings themselves are messages from the Soul. Many times we can determine what motivates our unconscious behavior (thereby becoming more fully conscious) by understanding our emotions and learning from them.

They say the "eyes" are the windows to the Soul. But I think the emotions are too.

If you've been following the posts here, it should be clear by now that the Moon is always changing, adjusting and responding to the heavens. A way to maintain our happiness, satisfaction with life and comfort level is to work in harmony with the Moon.

The Moon is the "mood" of the psyche, the consciousness, the Soul. While Mercury rules our rational left brain functions, the Moon is pure emotion. Those moods erupt out of the unconsious part of us... the deep part of our Soul of which we don't have full awareness. Think: dreams.

The Moon gives us happiness and fulfillment, yet despair and sadness are its gifts too. To feed the hungry Moon what it seeks is to bring fullness to life. That's why I like looking deeply into it.

The Moon will express the sign that it's currently in. And in this post, I will talk about Libra in connection to the Moon energy. Libra is a very social sign...that's the function, the archetype of Libra. It rules the area of consciousness and life connected to relationships.

Yet there's more. Additional keywords associated with Libra are: harmony, balance, social grace, beauty, art, culture, love, peace-making and also intellect. Libra is an air sign, associated with intellect. Libra can sustain a paradox, can see both sides and so a Moon in Libra could easily sustain an atmosphere of fairness and balance. Libra energy does not enjoy conflict and many times would rather do the flight rather than the fight of its opposite polarity, Aries. Just don't push your luck and try to tick off a Libran Moon. If you do, you're libal to awaken the sleeping Mars warrior. One of my teachers said once, "Behind every sweet Libra is a pissed-off Aries."
I pretty much get that potential, I've got alot of planets in Libra, including my Moon. But back to our point.

Every sign has a shadow side and Libra emotions can become out of balance... when Libra is out of balance, it's way out if you know what I mean. Decisions may be difficult when the Moon is in Libra since we will likely be able to see all sides to all issues--especially those that affect our mood, our security and our emotional happiness.

What will make us happy with the Moon is Libra? The answer is any activity that supports an enhancement of beauty and harmony in any way especially if it involves others in a social setting or even in a one-on-one partnership activity. These next few days would be a good time to pursue anything that supports those energies. Libra seeks peace but sometimes has difficulty achieving it unless the emotions are balanced.

Generally speaking however, I think the Emotional Weather will likely be as follows. Any one-on-one social confrontations should go smoothly, peacefully... at least on an emotional level. People should generally be feeling that they want to get along with others and try to keep the peace. But if you are looking for a decision in any area where your own or other people's emotions have an attachment, you may want to wait a few days until the Moon moves into Scorpio. Generally speaking (and that's the only way we can do it when we are singling out one function of mind), Scorpio energy will want to probe deeper and get to the bottom of things. Libra just wants to get along, keep things beautiful and keep things in harmony.

Libra Moon time may be a good time to beautify your home in some way or smooth over a rough spot in a relationship. The heavenly energies would support that. Social gatherings should go well too.

A Few Additional Players: The Moon will be opposing the Sun (imbalance between will/ego and emotions) and also opposing retrograde Venus (imbalance or stress or between emotions and money/relationship functions) as well as opposing Mercury (conflict between head and heart) over these next few days too. Retrograde Venus is still squaring Pluto (transformational energy--throwing off the past). Venus doesn't go direct until the 17th of this month. Look for money/relationships stresses that started around March 6th, 2009 to come to a head around that time. During the next few days, there's a trine from the Moon to Jupiter (encouraging of general good natured attitudes). That may balance out some of the more stressful energy. Keep in mind, this is general, and that these could play out in various different ways.

And now if you'll excuse me... as I write this post the Moon is still in Virgo and my hungry Virgo Moon is urging me to follow through with some details. Translation: I have to balance my check book! That's what's going to satisfy me emotionally right now. Virgo loves those details you know. Wishing you a beautiful and harmonous rest of the week....

Moon in Virgo

The Moon moves into Virgo Sunday evening 4/5/09 approx. 7 PM (EDT) and remains in that sign until Tuesday evening 4/7/09 approx 10:30 PM.

The emotional weather may be discriminating and analytical especially as the Moon gets closer to making a conjunction aspect to Saturn. The mood may contain feelings of criticism, especially around areas of disclipline or with concerns around maturity of any type (Saturn). That's one way that this combo of energy could express anyway.

Tomorrow, Monday, the Virgo Moon conjucts Saturn and opposes Mars. The feeling with this triad is pretty serious. The Virgo Moon will analyize, Saturn will want to control emotions and conform and Mars energy wants to go, move forward. Tricky combination of energy.

On the shadow side, Virgo emotions can be feelings of guilt, martyrdom and victimization. If there is any time of the month when self-criticism (or in projection, criticizing others) can be prominent, it's when the Moon is in Virgo. Virgo strives for "perfection" and when it is not achieved, which is most of the time--let's face it, there can be the pity party and feelings of guilt if you know what I mean. You may see this tendency in yourself or others when the Moon is in Virgo.

The higher side of Virgo is service, purity, humility and becoming "one" with one's work and working hard to perfect a skill.

Virgo rules the 6th house of health (as well as service/work) and so health issues may affect the emotions during this lunar transit.

Generally, anything that entails detail work or work in general should be favored when the Moon is transiting through Virgo.

Self-acceptance is the key (as well as acceptance of others) when the Moon transits through Virgo.

I hope these few insights on the likely emotional weather that may be playing out in your self and in others with this Virgo Moon transit helps with the start of your week.

Moon in Leo Friday afternoon thru Sunday Evening

The Moon is in the sign of LEO from approx. 3:30 pm (EDT) on Friday 4/3/09 until Sunday evening at approx. 7 pm (EDT) 4/5/09

The astrology posts found here on the Moon’s transit through the zodiac are general, covering the basic archetype of the Moon’s sign. Aspects to the Moon are, for the most part, being intentionally omitted for simplicity purposes. Aspects to the Moon will trigger each person’s life differently based upon the Soul's overall natal karmic dynamic and evolutionary intent and the current location of all planets involved.

In the past few days when the Moon was in Cancer the potential for great emotional depth existed. The attention, most likely, was inward. Leo, on the other hand, is outward and much more aggressive. Leo is a fire sign. I'd say not to look for people to hide their emotions too much this weekend.

The Moon is growing in light, Gibbous phase. Whatever we started at the new Moon time (around March 26th) may now be facing a bit of opposition or challenge from the external world. Maybe challenge is the better of the two words. But we will probably still like expressing our emotions anyway. Leo is about self-expression and we may feel like bringing our emotions into the world of form in some way now, whether the world is ready for it or not. Whatever our intentions were around the 26th, now the outer world is likely going to bring forth resistance. People may want to tell you how to change your creation to suit them. We may hear things like, "I think you should do things 'this' way"--meaning my way! You may have to stick to your guns if their suggestion comes from an egoic perspective. If it's a worthy suggestion, make changes. If not, mabye they should make their own creation.

The Leo Moon seeks comfort, security and happiness by seeking attention. The personality may be very expressive when the Moon is in Leo, and generous too.

In a Leo Moon we may very likely desire immediate reactions from others for our emotional expressions, whatever those are or however they manifest. Leo likes to go out quickly, hit its mark, and get the immediate feedback.

Leo rules the 5th house of creativity and self-expression (the performer) and a Moon in Leo would likely find these areas generally bringing emotional satisfaction and happiness. Leo energy is also very playful and spontaneous as well as generally optimistic. Thus, the connection with the children, creativity and charisma commonly associated with Leo.

The shadow side of Leo has to do with trying to impress others. The purpose is to feel secure within the self. The more the Leo Moon tries to impress (drama!), the more he puts other people off. There can be haughtiness, arrogance (and all other words having to do with excessive pride can be inserted here) when the Moon is in Leo.

The higher side of the Leo Moon has more to do with the words "love" and "heart". And toss in "play" and "fun"--the 5th house is known as the house of romance too. But not so much the commitment variety; just romance and fun for the pure joy of it. Leo in it’s best form is pure joy and optimism!

These types of things are likely what we'll be seeking for security and comfort purposes when the Moon is in Leo.

This weekend could be a good time for a party or entertaining; any type of recreation with children would be fun too. The Leo Moon trines both Mercury and the Sun which will likely add communication and ego intensification to the Leo Moon. Yet Jupiter opposes the Leo Moon which could play out as challenges from others to curb the enthusiasm.

The best way to work with the energy this weekend is to allow your self some drama and creativity--the Leo Moon is hungry for it. And don't let others rain on your parade. They probably just want some attention too.

These are the thoughts that I have for now on this weekend's Leo Moon.
Enjoy you're weekend!

Mental Projection Tips for Psychic Development & Spiritual Evolution

Practice With This Exercise Will also Help You to Learn How to Generally "Stay Awake" and Aware at All Levels of Mind in Order to Benefit Your Spiritual Evolution

In order to be able to travel to destinations for the purpose of answering psychic questions, mental projection is helpful. That is, being able to project yourself somewhere mentally.

The first time I projected part of my consciousness somewhere and received impressions about the place, I later drove there. My stomach did a little flip when I saw that what my remote visions revealed to me was actually what I saw physically when I arrived.
At the time I was a complete armature and just read the directions from a book and was totally amazed that I could actually make a mental journey and receive accurate impressions. I was thinking about that today--thus, decided to blog about it. The only difference is that in the exercise which follows, the suggestion is to practice by first going to a place you have been to in the past. That makes it much easier.

Here are a few tips if you'd like to practice.

Start by choosing the place that you would like to mentally project "to", and ideally this should be a place that you are familiar with. You may like to choose the home of a family member or friend who can validate some of what your impressions are, after the fact.

Don't attempt this, first of all, if you're tired.

Try this exercise when your stomach is fairly empty or at least not after a large meal when most of your faculties are doing something else, like digesting food.

Your mind should be clear and uncluttered--don't try this when you feel sluggish or your results may be disappointing.

Its best if you can shower beforehand so that your aura is clear and dress in a light garment. (One of my teachers would say that when she wants to do her very best psychic work, she showers and wraps herself in nothing more than a lightweight sheet or blanket.)

It goes without saying to do this (or any) psychic exercise in a place where you will not be interrupted, but I'll say it anyway. And take the phone off of the hook to avoid
being slammed back into your body--part of you will be leaving.

Sit with the back straight--lying down will encourage you to nod off.

Take 7 very deep breaths; evenly spaced in a rhythmic fashion. Inhale to a count of 4, hold the breath more than twice as long (count of 11), and then exhale to a count of 7. Even, regular breaths... rhythmic. Only 7; there's no need to hyperventilate.

Next, close your eyes and visualize your destination (family or friend's home or another location with which you are familiar). Preferably, it will be a place where you know someone is located so they can validate your impressions later. It may be the very next room from where you are doing this exercise...that's just fine. Or it may be 1,000 miles away; it doesn't matter.

Again, it's best if you actually know this place and have been there before and have a working familiarity with it and the details of the place.

Now with the eyes closed, see yourself in this place. Imagine that you are in the spot you have selected.

If you have any difficulty, be sure you are completely shutting out awareness of your present physical surroundings and see only (in your mind's eye) the appearance of the place (s) you wish to visit.

Allow yourself to picture every detail of the place; give yourself every detail it is possible for you recall. These details include things like colors, lighting, arrangement of objects, characteristic sounds, and smells -- everything that you would be aware of if you were physically there. Really get into it!

When you feel like you've got the vision of the place nailed down pretty well, begin
to look around you and observe current furniture arrangements (if you are inside a dwelling or office of some kind), look for people who may be present, note how they are dressed and listen to what is being said or what sounds you hear.

When you feel like you have enough information, return to your own physical body's
present environment once again.

Open your eyes, look at your clock or watch and write down the exact time of day and everything that you observed.

You can validate the information. If you travel to another part of the country, note the weather if you can too (rain/wind/sun?). Do you see trees moving? How are the people dressed? Do you hear what they are saying? These are facts that can be validated.

Essentially, that's it. The possible difficulty that you may encounter is that you fall into a dream state, unable to remain fully conscious throughout your time in the remote mental visit. The moment you slide into a dream state or begin to fantasize about a memory, what happens is you loose the spectator or observer perspective. You're not supposed to participate in what you are seeing, only witness it.

The dream state brings fantasy and just like on any and all levels of awareness at any time, if you fall into that dream state it brings illusion (delusion) and un-reality. In order to do this exercise properly, keep in mind this main idea: you're not directing anything at all and you're not participating in it--you are only observing.

Generally this exercise in its entirety involves the ability for concentration and the capacity to really "be in the NOW"; otherwise (as mentioned above) you can fall into the dream state and start making things up or fall back into prior memories of the place. You may start thinking about things you did when you were at this place the last time. The idea is to practice not loosing control and going into those memories or fantasy-land.

It takes practice. So don't be discouraged if you don't get excellent results the first time; try and try again. Go to different places--not to the same one over and over. It helps to have a friend or family members work with you in this exercise.

I suggest not working with this exercise for longer than 15 minutes; a half-hour tops. This exercise involves great disclipline of concentration and practice.

And (just like with everything else in the domain of psychic work) unbelief in your ability to accomplish this will act as a barrier. However, with an open mind results can be obtained with only a modest degree of training and practice.

Try it and see for yourself!
ADDENDUM: Today there wasn't much sunshine. Sometimes, on a cloudy day, I find that my solar lights do not light outdoors at night. Yet, sometimes they do! I had no way of knowing for sure if they were lit or not unless I went outside to look. So I did--but first I sent my consciousness outside to see. I did not go out and look with my physical eyes. Instead, I sent my consciousness outside to see if they were giving light or not.
I saw no light coming from the lanterns when I viewed them mentally.
Then afterwards, I walked outside to validate what I saw in my mind, and sure enough...
the lanterns were not lit. That's one small example of how to do the exercise.
