Here we are, halfway through the year, and with half the planets in retrograde now is the perfect time to reassess your visions and intentions for 2021. Where do you need to pivot and adapt? Are there goals you need to let go of? Are new dreams and visions calling you?
With Pluto in retrograde the next 5 months are an excellent time to excavate and review our relationship to the themes of power, control and transformation, especially as they relate to the areas of work, long term plans, structures, systems, government, discipline and criticism.
Mars in Cancer post here folks, and in true Mars in Cancer fashion, a few days late (care, rest and connection were calling). But yes, Mars entered the Cardinal Waters of Cancer on Friday April 23rd, and it will remain here until June 11th. Mars is the planet of heat, of fire, of doing, ofContinue reading “Mars in Cancer”
Tonight at 7:31 PM PST, we arrive at the Aries New Moon. Energetic and open Aries energy is the divine spark of creation; the life force that awakens the cherry blossoms bloom, the life force that inspires us to move, act and do. We arrive at the Aries New Moon ready for change, or at least ready to accept that change has come, even if we feel ill equipped to meet it.
On this Pisces New Moon, we are invited to wade through the waters of our own internal wetlands. The wetlands remind us we needn’t fear stagnation, that certain processes, such as grief and goodbyes, are meant to be slow, meandering and nonlinear.
Today Mars enters the buzzing inquisitive sign of Gemini and will be here to stay until April 23rd. When the driven Warrior meets the playful Twins we are asked to get curious about the ways we move, act and do. The Twins know there is never one, or even two, right ways to do anything, but entire multitudes of possibility. Mars in Gemini lovingly reminds we must enjoy the process. The colonizing tactic of a joyless ambition creates nothing worth saving.
Today marks the first of 3 squares Saturn in Aquarius will make with Uranus in Taurus, some of the most significant astrology of 2021. Saturn is the planet of structure, tradition, and responsibility. Uranus is the planet of chaos, the future and revolution. When the two square off tensions run high and power struggles abound.
As we reach Aquarius season our days slowly but surely are getting longer, as winter’s darkness begins to break. The bulk of the dying season is behind us, and we are reminded of the sweet tastes of life. The waxing light touches our awareness, as it does the barren trees, illuminating both our internal and external landscapes. We can see further and with more clarity than we’ve been able to for some time, as we integrate the experiences and lessons of our time spent in hibernation.
For those of the Neptune in Capricorn generation, such as myself (current day 22-36/37 year olds), it is of the utmost importance to regularly and vigorously assess our dreams, cleansing our dreamscape of those that are not our own. As Neptune seeks to dissolve all that it touches, in Capricorn this translates as the dissolution of responsibility, boundaries, structures, systems (economics, law & order), borders and reality. What does the dissolution of reality, borders, systems and structures, with a total disregard of responsibility look like on the ground? Colonization.
I am a Dutch-Canadian, Mexican-American person. I currently live on occupied Winnemem Wintu Territory known also as Mount Shasta CA. My Mercurial nature has been a (not so) constant thread in my life. As a mixed race, white passing, Canadian/American person, who has moved countless times on both sides of the border, I’ve become quiteContinue reading “Hi, My Name is Andrea Hernandez.”
