Mars and the Election

greek-mythology-top-ten-badass-gods-goddesses-Ares-Artist-Gonzalo-Ordoñez-genzoman.deviantart.com_.jpg

Greetings to all from Little Creek,

Now that the elections are behind us and we have digested the results a bit, allow me to add an astrological note.

The planet that probably contributed greatly to the surprise of the results of the outcome was Mars. Mars, as you all know, is the god of war and combat, courage and audacity, frankness and passion.

During the entire election day Mars was stationed at 29 degrees Capricorn, and was ready to enter the following the sign of Aquarius. He did so around midnight , which was about the time when the president-elect made his victory speech.

Now Capricorn is a structured and rather conservative sign while Aquarius is the revolutionary one, the friendly one who wants to create a sense of community and new order. Quite a contrast between the two, don’t you think?
Rigid and steady vs. independent and diverse.

So Mars moved into Aquarius and he’ll embody its energy until the 19th of December, 2016. This is the time for us to go deep into our hearts and see what the diversity of our needs, attitudes and energies are. Let’s give up those stodgy attitudes of ours and step into the new. A new community is to be formed including us all, whatever be our background, color or race.

The work of everyone among us is to identify his or her contribution
to society and to allow this time to be an opportunity to link up with others.

Wishing you all well and bon courage,
Barbel

PS: as the Beatles wrote and sang:
Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better.

New Moon in Scorpio & Trick or Treat

4jsm40p36mjci5t2gg0h1opnkiettk8

Greetings to all of you from Little Creek,

This New Moon in Scorpio falls at a time of withering, dying foliage along with fewer minutes of light during each day.  As though this isn’t enough, there is also the celebration of Halloween when children come to your door with scary costumes and threatening sounds that create an air of mystery and secrecy.

It’s as though these events invite you to follow Mother Earth’s example and, like she does with her leaves, do away with things that no longer suit us.   Do you hear the whispers of your soul during this New Moon time?  This is the ideal time to listen because the contact between the Sun (conscious) and the Moon (unconscious) is very, very close.

At this time it’s easier for us to hear that little voice within us nagging and nudging us to do away with the old and allow the new to come forth.  That soft but persistent voice invites us to chase our old ghosts away and get rid of old habits and outdated patterns of behaviour.

For example, just imagine releasing unpleasant thoughts about our childhood and replacing them with wonderful memories of laughter and fun.  It would be great to restore friendship with Johnny and Leslie so that we could move forward with mutual respect and understanding.  Let’s all choose the high road of integrity rather than wincing and making excuses of not having the skills to do it.

Mars, being the strong willed planet, has his say this time around and is ready to break up our stale energies.  We can handle that change and that transformation.  All we have to do is listen to that little voice and hunt for our treasures.

Trick or treat?  It’s up you to choose.
Bonne lunaison,
Barbel

Super Moons

supermoon

Fall greetings from Little Creek,

It’s at times of planetary happenings that we feel particularly vulnerable when things don’t seem to be working out.  Maybe we’re not heading in the right direction or we haven’t made the right decision.  What’s going on up there?

 

The 13th of October was the date of the Full Moon in Aries.  It looked like a huge bright bubble hanging on to its position in the heavens, didn’t it?  Well,  we’ll be graced with another opportunity to see this kind of Moon on the 14th of November, date of the next Full Moon in Scorpio.  Both are called Super Moons because they are 14 % more luminous than at other times throughout the year.

 

The aspects of the planets or the relationships among the planets 
at these times of the Full Moon are particularly strained and “tug-of-war”
like.  There is no yielding, no giving in, simply a stick-in-the-mud attitude.

 

Particularly during this time period between these two Super Moons let’s look at our own lives because maybe we reflect some of these conflictual planetary attitudes in our everyday lives.  Patch up your quarrels with Sally and try to listen to her side of the story.  Turn your tongue twice in your mouth because you answer the umpteenth call
from the insurance company.  Sit down attentively with Harry who needs help with his math problems.

 

This is more than simply “The Paper Moon, Sailing Over The Cardboard Sea“.  This is a great opportunity for all of us to change things between now and the 14th of November and, just like planets, reach for harmonious aspects.  I had a peek at the Super Moon chart and saw clearly that Venus will show us the way.   Let’s move forward with love in our hearts and kindness in our attitudes.

 

Sending blessings to you all,
Barbel

New Moon in Libra Sept. 30

relationships-giraffe

Greetings from Little Creek,

Ouffff!!   There’s great news on the horizon because Virgo is passed and there is a brighter day ahead.  Classes are in session now and you no longer have to battle and fight your way to the cash register at Target in order to pay for Molly’s coloring pencils and Joe’s football shorts.

 

Now you can focus on your personal projects and goals.  But don’t be overwhelmed by your tasks because you’re not alone in this.  The New Moon in Libra sends you good vibes and lets you know that you have partners, associates, teammates and family members whom you can count on to lend a hand.  Mary will surely be willing to introduce you at the board meeting and your son might even clean the bedrooms.

 

Your task this month is to work on establishing or reinforcing your relationships.  The presence of the others is critical to your happiness, treat them with respect.  Rather than imposing or storming forward, why not try to be tactful and gracious?  Instead of commandeering or ordering, why not be more tolerant and courteous?  Take the peaceful and tranquil road of Libra.

 

Finally, there is no better way to grow in relationships than to….relate. So don’t be the loner, but rather the suave Yves Montand singing “Autumn Leaves” to your beloved.

 

Happy fall season to all,
Barbel

Dog Days in Virgo

635903338934659502736924497_anigif_enhanced-buzz-6845-1368143987-9

Greetings to you all from Little Creek,

Now that we’ve vacationed and spent boisterous times with the kids as well as pleasant moments with friends, it’s time to move on and live out new adventures and other challenging phases in our lives.

 

Ready or not, here comes Virgo. 
She starts off this month with a bang – a Solar Eclipse and a Mercury retrograde.
How that for a defiant beginning of the month?  Virgo, as you all surely know, is the sign of harvest and crops, nutrition and health and work.

Virgo asks us: 
  • What can we do so that next year’s harvests will go well and that the crops will be abundant?
  • What can we do so we will be more successful in our jobs and daily work?
  • What can we do so that we remain healthy and enjoy great vitality throughout the coming year?
Virgo has her arms full of advice, but she particularly draws our attention to the topic of details.  The details of your work schedule, the details in your Power Point presentation, the details of your gym program and others.  Sift through your plans and look at the details.  Be picky about it because in the end it will yield much satisfaction and rewards.

 

Today my usual morning walk allowed me to halt a moment and look at the details of something that I had not noticed before.  No, it isn’t the crane with the fish in his mouth, it’s ….it’s …it’s the… Can you find it on the picture below?

New Moon in Leo

leo04

Greetings from Little Creek,

During these summer months we seem to be more busy than usual and have little time for ourselves.  This New Moon in Leo asks us to take time out, celebrate who we are and show our creative talents.  It’s time to renew ourselves!

 

Afraid of trying something new and being held back by those problems lurking in the back of your mind?  Why not bring them to the foreground and look at them with a positive attitude?  How do you solve them or modify them?  By using your CREATIVITY AND YOUR TALENTS.

 

For example, with much prodding from your sister, you finally dare to place your personal colorful flower arrangement  on the dining room table.  It certainly shows off your artistic flair and before long you receive many complimentary oooos and ahhhs.  One of your guests even suggests that you create the flower arrangements for Lulu’s wedding reception next Saturday.  Nothing better than that to show that creative side of yourself and with that little extra income, you could even sign up for community flower arranging class.

 

How about showing your manual skills by weaving a basket for Aunt Jemima? She’ll much appreciate it, ask you for more and before you know it you’ll be in business.

 

Put on your poet’s cap and type a haiku or sonnet.  Just keep at it like Leo and before you know it, you’ll have a book of poetry published.

 

These fun creations will give you the confidence and faith to carry on.  Those are the wonders of that Leo’s creative energy that encourages us with this New Moon.  Creativity is a crucial part of who you are.  Don’t ignore it – flaunt it and have fun!

 

Bonne lunaison,
Barbel
PS What’s the best time to make your creative move?  A Solar Return chart will tell you     what you need to know.  so send an email or call and we’ll get started.

New Moon in Cancer

Greetings from Little Creek,

Every New Moon cycle brings energy for growth and so today is a potent day.
Are you ready to accept this good flow of energy or are you mired in inertia?

The New Moon this month is a rather fluid and receptive Moon placed in the sign of Cancer. Where is Cancer in your chart? In House 4 or in House 10? That area of your chart is particularly energized at this time and this is where you should be doing some searching and reflecting.

For example House 4 is all about home and hearth and so think about your relationship with long forgotten uncle Jimmy and lonely cousin Jenny. Why not bake a cake for Jenny who is in the doldrums or drive north to visit uncle Jimmy?

The most important part of these moments of reflection is that you trust your feelings. At the beginning of your life it was your parents who navigated you in this world of feelings but now it’s up to you. It’s up to you to steer the boat and move into the direction of life that your feelings indicate.

During this past month I often had the opportunity to say or write a word of encouragement to those who were in my immediate surrounding. I hesitated at first, then checked in with my feelings and finally came forth with a word of concern or consolation. A smile or “merci” was the result and the world around us felt lighter. It was a most rewarding time.

Listen to your intuition, allow your strengths to come forth and go with the flow of this New Moon.

Bonne lunaison,
Barbel
