Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are once again preparing for spring, the “rebirth” of the sun after months of winter. Next month is one of the most powerful times of the year astrologically with a Solar Eclipse on March 8th and a total Full Moon Lunar eclipse March 23rd. This Lunar eclipse closely follows the Spring Equinox on March 20th be visible in many parts of North and South America. I will be in Egypt with my group the entire month of March, as this incredible cosmic dance unfolds (more on this to come from Egypt). As we know all eclipses are “game-changers”, and where they fall in an individual birth chart reveals where a major 19- year cycle is climaxing and preparing you for the winds of change over the next six months. I am offering prepaid phone appointments NOW for sessions beginning April 3rd (upon my return from Egypt) with a complimentary “Egyptian Isis Deck” reading.

ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE: Full Moon in Virgo Feb 22, 2016
All Full Moons illustrate the themes of the opposite signs involved. At this Full Moon time, we are balancing Virgo and Pisces: analysis and logic with universal compassion. When is it more beneficial to “surrender” our ego; and when is it more appropriate to stand our ground and use “mind over matter”. If “Necessity is the Mother of Invention”; then Virgo is its Goddess Mother! The Virgo Full Moon is an Earth sign; Virgo is practical rather than a dreamer. Her role is to be of service and to help others through her mental acuity, rather than to be the prima donna. She is the director, choreographer, and set designer, rather than the star of the show. The ruler of the sign of Virgo is the planet, Mercury, which rules our thought processes, language and communication. Virgo is also the sign of healers; it calls for us to be of service on the planet, but to also be discriminating in thought, word and deed. Translation: practice non-judgment, trust your intuition, and don’t believe everything you read or hear. Be aware of how you choose to express yourself. Whether you are a pontiff or a politician, words do matter!
Personally Speaking: If Virgo is your sun sign, or you have personal planets in the sign, (Moon, Mercury, Mars Ascendant), the themes of discrimination, self- analysis, and attention to detail are important for your growth and development. You need to avoid obsessive/compulsive thinking, or feeling addicted to perfection. Areas to monitor are your diet and digestion, especially in regard to food allergies. Virgos love to be of service, and you will find many working in the helping professions. Although they are often quiet in temperament, Virgos do have a way with words and make excellent editors and teachers. Their motto is “ God is in the details”. They also like to look and feel good, so they may be involved in the fashion and industries. Designers, models, crafts people, accountants, musicians (especially guitarists and violinists) often have Virgo prominent in their birth horoscopes.
Historically Speaking: The Virgo Full Moon is associated with Isis, the Great Mother Goddess of Egypt (some say that the original face of the sphinx was carved in the image of Isis during the Age of Virgo). This was the age of the matrilineal, agrarian societies when the feminine face of the goddess was revered and worshipped. Isis teaches that the Body is the Temple. The sacred task of Virgo is to restore health to mind, body and spirit. Chiron, the wounded Healer of ancient Greek mythology, remains conjunct the South Node in the sign of Pisces. Chiron is the shamanic bridge between physical and non-physical realities. If you work in any of the healing professions, you are working with the Chiron archetype. Where Chiron falls in your birth chart, describes your greatest gift, as well as where your greatest “wounding” occurs. Chiron is responsible for a return to shamanic wisdom, as well as healing modalities with crystals, herbs, essential oils and all that has since become known as New Age techniques. We are coming to realize that quantum physics opens up the doors to “quantum health”. We are Light beings magnetized into physical form. Let’s get with the program!
