LIFE LIGHT ASTROLOGY UPDATE – 10th November 2013

Mature feminineSunday’s first Quarter moon has set the scene for an interesting week. First of all, most of you will be pleased to know that Mercury will turn direct on Tuesday, so computer and communication glitches should start easing up. However there’s still some dreaminess and possible confusion around  for most of the week, so be careful when making decisions or signing contracts. Use the creative energy to make or appreciate art, music, dance,  or to spend time in nature, connecting with the beauty around you, even for 5 minutes a day.  

The focus this week  is firmly on the Feminine, with Venus, the planet of love, beauty and money having just entered Capricorn, where she will stay until March next year. She brings with her a level of maturity in the way we handle our relationships, our finances and whatever is valuable to us. If you have a creative outlet which you enjoy, you may feel called upon to spend more time with it and take it more seriously. This earthy Venus also encourages us to find and feel gratitude in our everyday lives, to roll up our sleeves and commit to attending to the present moment, with as much grace as possible.

In my December Art & Soul workshop – we’ll be looking back on the past year and creating a beautiful Gratitude Collage. Click here for more details

As Venus joins Pluto on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, she invites us to  consciously excavate whatever’s been left unattended to in our relationships, financial affairs, or our creativity, without being drawn into the drama of the story, which will be very tempting. Make a commitment to yourself to bring anything you’ve been ignoring or putting off, out into the open.

Those financial worries and woes? – sit down and face them.

Whatever you’ve been procrastinating about – just do it.

The relationship issue that’s been niggling you? Have a heart-to-heart discussion with the person. This is a powerful opportunity to heal our relationships on a deeper level than before.

Any gremlins left unattended and ignored are likely to come bubbling, full of fire and brimstone, to the surface anyway, so we might as well lift the lid gently before that happens.

All in all, this is a great week to embrace the mature, grounded feminine side of yourself, to  show up, feel what you feel and deal with what needs to be dealt with, one step at a time… mountain goat style.

Mercury Retrograde – 22 October 2013

5d71343d98201b0444163c59c62f40dc

Mercury in Scorpio goes retrograde tomorrow and will only turn direct again on 12th November. As this usually coincides with disturbances or breakdowns in all forms of communication and conveyance, be sure to  back up your ALL your data, allow for extra travel time, check documents before you sign them and take ten deep breaths before you react verbally.

Apart from the irritating stuff, at a deeper level, we are all being given an opportunity to carefully consider and transform (Scorpio) the way we think and communicate.

During the next few weeks, unplug from the continual influx of information whenever you can and re-flect on the quality of your thoughts. Ask whether the story you’re telling about yourself and your world is true. If not, set the intention to ditch some of the old mental garbage and start re-designing and re-framing your thoughts.

What are the thoughts that dominate your waking moments?

How can you look at the same life scenario from a different perspective?

What we focus on expands – positive or negative. So, instead of lamenting about what we don’t have, how about  expressing gratitude daily for our blessings.  Also, the more we visualise the kind of life we’d like to live, the higher our frequency rises and the more chance we have of actually attracting it.

Lets all help keep the good vibes going. Visit my community page on Facebook and join The 26 day Gratitude Challenge starting tomorrow.
