It is nearly time to say good-bye to 2015. It has been an extraordinary year for a lot of people. Universally, 2015 adds up to a number 8, 2+0+1+5= 8. The number eight rules money and fate. The number eight is also ruled by the planet Saturn. Saturn rules karma, power, obstacles and responsibilities. Of course, karma comes back to fate. Collectively and personally, “What were we meant to go through in 2015?” “What were our experiences, and what did we learn in 2015?”
The planet Saturn was in the sign of Sagittarius from the start of the year to mid June. Saturn then went back to Scorpio where it resided until September, and then moved forward back into Sagittarius. Scorpio rules joint money, transformation, beginnings and endings. Sagittarius rules foreign countries, religion, education and law. Sagittarius can be expansive and extravagant. Scorpio can be passionate and resourceful.
To sum up, 2015, some of us had a lot of expenditure and felt compelled to be extravagant. We pursued our passions and became very resourceful when we needed to balance the budget. Some, were delighted in receiving extra income, or obtaining new possessions. Others couldn’t raise their heads above water! No matter what they did, money slipped through their fingers very quickly. A lot of us traveled to foreign countries, while others started brand new subjects to study. Regarding relationships, some transformed and took on a whole fresh persona. While others, transformed and became more passionate. Some, chose to go on their separate ways to obtain more freedom.
Regardless of what may have happened to us in 2015, I am sure some of us can say,” I have learnt a lot about………….and will make sure the next time I will.. ………….!”
When we are younger, especially in our teenage years, most of us are not confident, we battle through our teens with insecurity, uncertainty and a great desire to be loved and accepted. One of the most fundamental essences of our human development is to discover ourselves. When we are teenagers, I believe, it would be nice to be taught from our peers the most important functions for our existence, to love, respect, empathize and understand ourselves and others.
Some of us have been waiting for things to happen. For some of us, the last few weeks have felt like we have been on hold. Transiting Mars in Leo, has finally moved into position. The planet Mars is making an easy aspect to planet Uranus in Aries. Sudden and unexpected events are happening. I, myself am experiencing beneficial unforeseen changes in my work and events that are happening at home. Unfortunately, others may be experiencing not so favorable outcomes.
We have had a couple of sad situations in the media in the last couple of days concerning domestic violence. The planet Mars rule’s aggression, arguments, death by accident or violence, guns, males and madness. Uranus rules accidents, agitation, changes, sudden deaths and the unusual. Uranus and Mars are sitting in fire signs. Fire signs are passionate, courageous, fiery and assertive. Fire signs are of course the symbol of fire, and when they are in negative mode, they could get out of control.
Now is the time to make the changes that requires action, where we are ready to take a risk and pursue changes that in stills’ passion.
Seraphinite is the stone of spiritual enlightenment. This beautiful crystal’s name is derived from the Seraphim, who are angels of the highest order. This crystal is a dark-green colour with silvery-white patterns, likened to feathery wings.
Seraphinite helps the physical connect to the angelic realm and promotes living from the heart. Seraphinite is also excellent for accessing self-healing. This crystal assists with reviewing the progress of one’s life and identifying the changes needed to place one on a path to peace and fulfilment.
I love wearing this crystal. As much as I love all the other crystals I keep gravitating back to this one! My experience of wearing this crystal gives me a feeling of gentleness, a calm energy, and a concentration of the connection of self and the non physical realm. Seraphinite, is a truly beautiful crystal!
When you are doing something you love, you feel good! When you feel good, you generally experience feelings of joy, happiness and love. You become grateful, hopeful, and begin to trust your feelings.
When you trust your feelings, life becomes a smoother path to follow. Your feelings are your best gauge to cipher whether you could go this way or that. Ask yourself,”Does this decision bring me closer to joy and peace of mind?” or, “Do I have a sick feeling in my stomach?” There is your answer.
We are born; at that moment, we are nothing but pure love. As we grow up, our parents and even the generations of family before our parents, impose their thinking, their fears and attitudes upon us. These emotions and thoughts seem to cover us with a veil. We spend most of our lives trying to remove this veil. From the veil of inherited beliefs we then choose through circumstances and events to find ourselves. Some of us get lost. We can lose ourselves in negativity and fear. Others, at some point, find that ‘light bulb moment’, remembering who we really are. Through astrology and numerology we have chosen circumstances and events, and in doing so, we can attempt to remove these layers or veils. Through our understanding of challenges we can evolve. We can find our truth and can create a loving, joyous and a peaceful life.
I am an Astrologer. I have been practising astrology for the last twenty-seven years. Over that time, I have observed the planets and the effects they have on us. Likewise, I connected to the numbers and watched the effects numbers have on us. From our house number, to our personal year, the numbers all have an influence. “Everyone and everything is connected to the same source, power or intelligence.” It is through both my study and observation that I believe there is a strong connection between astrology, numerology and the quantum field.
A lot of us are leading busy stressful lives. We become stressed by conditions in our environment that are imposed upon us. Working to the demands of others, sticking to deadlines and keeping up with both our working and family relationships are stress factors. Life has its frustrations and hassles and these generate stress. Our bodies can only tolerate so much stress and then our health begins to suffer. Relaxation and balance are the keys to de-stress.
In my following blogs we will go through the Zodiac and list some of the ways the star signs can guide you to relax .
Jupiter moved into the sign of Leo in July 2014 and it will be there until 11th August 2015. This energy moves actively, precisely and lovingly without us even remembering the previous energy from Jupiter in Cancer.
Slowly our relationships begin to change. We seem to feel more tolerant and loving to our existing loved ones, where once before we could write a list of their annoying habits. We connect to our very own heart center and want to love and to be more loved. Our relationships with our partners, friends and family have an opportunity, with Jupiter in Leo, to be more affectionate, generous and joyful.
For people without partners this is an opportunity to enter a relationship where you feel more appreciated, admired and loved. For people who are having difficulties in their relationships, under this transit there is an opportunity to let go of anything or anyone who does not respect, love or value you. This is a time when we really think about what we really want and desire in a relationship. It is a time of learning about ourselves. We can ask, ‘How do we love ourselves?’
Jupiter in Leo provides an opportunity to grow and succeed through creative self -expression. It is a time when some will have an opportunity to be more recognised through their hobbies and creative abilities. Others will rise to positions of leadership.
Jupiter in Leo allows us to be more mindful of having fun. To play and love, recreation, entertainment and romance may be on top of our lists.
With our children, we may be more focused on them at this time. Our children may also be dealing with new issues such as parenthood, career changes, emotional issues and issues with their siblings.
On the flip side Jupiter in Leo can bring about extravagance. It may bring about a lot of spending. And one can be totally focused on self image.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love and peace. If you want to attract love, Rose Quartz is the crystal to wear or keep by your bedside. If you thought you were unlovable, Rose quartz teaches us to love ourselves. We can’t give love unconditionally until we first learn to love ourselves. Rose quartz also helps us with self-forgiveness, acceptance and self-worth.
