After so many years of proudly supporting The Mauimama and Kate Griffiths in her outstanding contribution to our community I am writing my last forecast. I have been here since the first issue, but with many health challenges for my husband, I have to streamline how I spend my time. I am going to focus on my counseling astrological work and will be still available for personal readings.
Looking at the bigger picture with Uranus now in Taurus, we are looking at big changes and impacts around our survival on earth. With a screaming environment, rising carbon dioxide levels destroying our atmosphere, shifts in weather patterns and global warming, earth quakes, heat waves, excess rain, flooding and hurricanes are results of those shifts all over the world.
With Uranus we always expect potential violence, revolution, unrest and sudden interruption of the “normal flow” and hopefully at the end of the process a breakthrough to a new level. I do believe that we as humans are very resourceful to step it up when our survival is challenged and it seemed like we are there.
For a micro perspective we still want to be in alignment and aware of the movement of the Moon throughout the month with the New Moon, the beginning of and the Full Moon highlighting the pinnacle and full exposure to a certain theme.
Virgo New Moon September 9, 2018 — 11:01 a.m. PDT: The Wisdom of the Servant and Healer
As you know, every New Moon starts us on a new journey of emotional maturation depending upon the sign. With a New Moon in Virgo you can become more aware that there is a true need in you to share from your heart.
This Virgo New Moon opposed by Neptune adds the possibility to learn how to truly care for each other and find ways to go about that. Neptune is the Mystic and unconditional Lover and gives you the gift of love, compassion, and empathy for others and a deepened inner spiritual dimension. Moments of higher consciousness are available to you.
Virgo is a sign of service, mentoring, health and well-being. Virgos are quietly reliable, attending to the smallest details of any project in an organized way. Virgos are earthy, practical people, who are good with their hands and combining those qualities with their attention to detail. With the Moon in this sign you get an extra dose of those qualities to figure things out and re-organize your life which means: “Get your trip together!”
Remember when you experience your individuality in the framework of service to your family, friends and community you feel deeply satisfied, useful, happy and fulfilled!
Western Astrology is paying a lot of attention to the seasons, the equinoxes and solstices. We will experience the Libra Equinox September 22, 2018 9:54 p.m. EDT. With a Sun Mercury conjunction in Libra being opposed by Chiron, understanding and intellect should be used in service of compassion and healing and continues the flow we started with the Virgo New Moon earlier.
Aries Full Moon September 24, 2018 — 7:52 p.m. PDT: The Activist and Warrior
When the Moon is full in a sign it reflects the light of consciousness to the fullest. It is a time to be fully engaged with life in that specific area. With the Full Moon in Aries that means emotional strength, energy and spunk will be more available to you. You can dip deeply into your passion and move forward in areas you have been waiting for progress. Now is the time to TAKE ACTION.
We all need challenges in our life to grow into our highest potential. And we definitely live in challenging times. It is really powerful to recognize the Full Moon and invoke the celestial forces on their highest level to help you start consciously into the direction of your intentions and dreams. Focus on your life’s vision and the future you want on your planet.
Ask yourself how YOU can aspire to that highest level of consciousness we call LOVE. Every miraculous achievement starts with a dream, which seems to be impossible in the beginning.
My wishes for you:
Be the force for good you want to see in the world!
Raise your consciousness, transform the world and your island one step at a time!
We have never had more need for that…
