Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo: Back to the Light

Greetings beloveds,

A full moon ruled by the element of fire with the Moon and North Node in Leo, Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, and then Mars and Uranus in Aries. With an even distribution between the fire signs we have each stage of creation – a spark of life, the strong flames of midlife, and the quiet warmth of dying embers. The moon in Leo in the 10th house shines light on the will and courage needed to face our purpose.

Take note from the different forms of the fire signs. Where do you fall in the fire spectrum of creation? Are you at the beginning stages, identifying and starting to move forward in your career? Perhaps you have started your career or are in your prime. Lastly, you may be a well-versed expert in your field with a solid background and vision of who you are. This isn’t a linear process. We often grow , change, and expand our understanding of our purpose and how that can or will affect our career.

Above all else, allow yourself to shine in your chosen role whatever that may be. The world would not be the same without you. Let your career or source of income be like the moon and reflect your inner light to others.

These might be hard words to hear but sometimes we feel that we have a calling but it’s difficult to manifest. We take the classes, get the job, find the mentor, write the book, create the program but it doesn’t go anywhere. We find ourselves suffering from imposter syndrome. We worry that we are not on the right path or encounter a lot of resistance along the way. We may feel so attached to what we THINK or FEEL we are supposed to be doing or who we are yet, we are unable to make progress in that area.

Take that step back. Look at how you approach these topics. Are you so attached to this career, purpose, or identity that it is difficult to keep perspective and make necessary changes to move forward. The power of Leo lies in their natural appeal to others. Find those who are in your field or have similar interests which can bolster and support you on this path. Then ground yourself through the foundation you have been working on since this the Cancer new moon last month.

Your home is a sacred space. Cleanse it, fill it with things that bring you peace, and then retreat there to rest and refuel. You’ve got this.

December Astrology Part 1: Right Side Up

Greetings, 

December 1- Mercury Retrograde enters Scorpio:

We all know the retrograde spiel by now, especially with Mercury. Lags in communication, understanding, traffic issues, travel issues, blocks to your creativity, not being able to make progress on projects. All of these are elements associated with the planet Mercury and when any planet is in retrograde we see that energy slow down or become resistant. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio may find us diving deeply into metaphysical, philosophical, or areas that we just want to know more about. Yet, we may not find satisfying answers or information. Perhaps that book that has exactly what you are looking for is checked out of the library or the web page won’t load. You may also find that you are in a continuous dive. You become obsessed with a topic or issue to the point where you forget to accomplish or ignore other responsibilities. The key to this time is to HAVE FUN WITH IT. Don’t take anything too seriously. If you come across resistance just let it go. Mercury is only in retrograde for a couple of more days. You can do it! 

December 2 – Venus enters Scorpio: 

As Christina Aguilera said “wanna get dirty, it’s about time for my arrival”, Venus has officially entered Scorpio. Deep connections, secrets told between the sheets, kinks, and spiritual healing are all a part of Venus in Scorpio energy. This is the seductress or charmer. They pull you in through their mystery. Something that just makes you want to know more…about yourself, about the world, about each other. Coupled with Mercury in Retrograde you may find yourself obsessing over a project, passion, goal, or person. Thinking of them constantly or wanting to be near them often. Healthy ways to express this are through art, exercise, and other forms of creative expression. Because you do not want to test the Scorpion so best to give that energy space to be free in yourself and others. 

Once Mercury goes direct on the 6th this is a great time to engage in magic practices that engage your senses. Eat decadent flavorful foods. Wear or touch fabrics that give you physical reactions. Use scents that create the feelings that you would like to manifest. Watch or visit beautiful movies and places. Listen to music or have conversations that gets your blood pumping. These elements can also help you to soothe and heal you if during this time you encounter painful emotions, memories, or information. 

December 6th – Mercury goes Direct

FINALLY! We will be in the shadow of Mercury retrograde for a bit longer but things will start to flow again. Take advantage of the information gathering and start making those plans!

Check out the rest of this month’s astrology in my upcoming posts.

Full Moon in Pisces:

Full Moon in Leo Pisces

 

Greetings beloveds,

In a season where we are called to ground, discover our truth, and evaluate where we are in order to get where we want to be we find ourselves pulled deep within. It is the call of the deep, the peace and mystery of waters that are not moved by petty surface level disturbances. This is the work of the High Priestess who carries the energy of the Goddess during the great ritual. She may cleanse for a full season, meditate for days, set herself apart. As she wishes to reconnect with the love of the divine she finds herself sacrificed and reborn as creatures of great wisdom, magic, and glory.

This full moon there is great personal development ritual work to be done. If you have been waiting for the chance to work your magic that has been flowing through your veins since the Aquarius full moon, this is the moment. Turn the power that you send to others and the world around you inward. Return to your true self; a being of true power. It is your choice what you choose to do with this knowledge.

There are several rituals that you can do at this time. Here is one using mirror work.

 

  MIRROR WORK RITUAL

  •        Reflect upon the work that you have been doing. If you are aware of your purpose or of what you would like to manifest with your power write this down in a one sentence I am statement.
  • Take a shower or bath to clear your energy.
  • Then, in a quiet space, lower the lights and light a candle (use a color that corresponds with the purpose of your ritual).
  • Spend at least 5 minutes in meditation, calming your mind, deepening your breath, and center your attention on the purpose of your ritual.
  • Then, using a mirror or obsidian looking glass with a soft gaze look at your reflection.
  • Notice your facial features. Your eyes, nose, mouth, chin, ears, and hair.
  •  Does anything immediately catch your attention?
  • Do you find yourself having difficulty focusing on your reflection? Try to look directly into your eyes. What do you see? What do you feel?
  • Now say, “this is a physical manifestation of my soul. Through this form I can interact with the world around me. Through this form I can impact my world. With these eyes I see the truth and can find the path. With this mouth I speak into existence my purpose. I am…(insert your I am statement and repeat it 3X)”. Now close with your preferred casting phrase (Ase Amen Ra Ma’at, and so it is, as I will so mote it be, etc)

Enjoy!

The Power of the Lion’s Gate: The 8th Gate of Creation

Lion's Gate.pngGreetings beloveds,

In case you missed it here’s the breakdown for July 6th and 7th astrology.

Aug 6 Venus enters Libra

Venus returns home to the sign of Libra in the 7th house today until September 9th (the new moon in Virgo). This is a significant event as 6 is the number associated with Venus and Libra. I have two recommendations for today depending on where you are in your path. One way to take advantage of this energy is to practice a very nourishing form of self-care. By this I mean what is your secret guilty pleasure? Binge watching The Barefoot Contessa? Calling in sick to work to sleep in? Whatever you do that brings you the greatest pleasure, do that today with an energy of appreciation and thanks. This will greatly begin the shift of your energy over the next three days. If you have been focusing on manifesting your purpose,

Aug 7 Uranus in Taurus in Retrograde (Mercury in Leo, Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn, Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Aquarius, and Chiron in Aries are in retrograde).

Our 7th planet has entered into retrograde today. Uranus in Taurus in the 12th house is now in retrograde signaling the beginning of a revolution of perspective. Think Alice in Wonderland’s Cheshire Cat “Can you stand on your head?”. How open are you to change? Today is a beautiful day to break from convention and take that chance that you’ve been working towards. As this is a time of retrograde, if the pieces aren’t already in place then today is the day to write the plan, do the research, and receive insight from the Universe so you can follow your dreams. Be open. The world is waiting for you.

After that we have the Lion’s Gate on Thursday, August 8th. At that time we have an opportunity to take advantage of a portal that allows us to access the unfiltered energy of Leo. Correlated with the infinity symbol, the number 8 symbolizes our strength to achieve our desires through a can do attitude and will alone. It is the Strength card in Tarot, a steadfast woman holding open the mouth of the lion, confident in her ability to handle the powerful animal (her internal and external desires).

When we align with the energy of the Lion’s Gate, we open ourselves to our true self. We remove the masks of our consciousness and dive directly into our spirit. Over the past few months you have cleanses, cleared, and refined your life, goals, and purpose. Although there is still work to be done you have the opportunity to use your will to move your desires from the astral to the material realms. The unending figure 8 symbolizes the connection between all realms and the flow of spirit/energy. Above all else we are timeless and our souls exist in eternity.

So how do we tap into this energy? If we look at Leo the Lion, the 8, and the energy of Summer we are called to the light. Spend time outside in the sun, meditate with a candle, use warming essential oils such as cardamon, clove, and ginger, eat foods that are light and full of water. Keep your heart light so that your spirit is able to soar unburdened into the space of creation. For what we enter during the Lion’s Gate is the 8th Gate. I have spoken of the 8th Gate often. Within that 8th gate, we are in a space of pure creation and freedom. True Sovereignty. This time correlates with the winter’s energy of reflection and shadow work through the underworld where we enter the 8th gate. Our divine masculine is now within the underworld entering the 8th gate through the light. During this Lion’s Gate we release our hold to attachments so that we are able to dream. So this is a powerful time for dream work, shaman journey’s and sound healing.

Dream wildly my loves. Leave what you do not need behind so that you can be the ruler of your being.

Much love to you all,

Kamilah Rose

August Planetary Placements

Greetings beloveds!

Here’s your August Astrology.

Aug 11 New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Leo

I’ll have a review for this energy up in a few days.

Aug 12 Mars Retrograde enters Capricorn

The Mars retrograde gets grounded in the soothing energy of Capricorn today. From the unpredictable energy of Aquarius we find ourselves being a bit more…petty. Capricorns enjoy activity that is logical, entertaining, and contributes to their long term goals. Now that you’ve been able to understand how you feel it’s time to do something about it.

Aug 19 Mercury Goes Direct and Jupiter trine Neptune

Whoop whoop Mercury is direct today! All that work that we’ve done on the 6th, 7th, and 8th are ready to be put into action. With support from Jupiter trine Neptune we get intense support to manifesting our dreams through the use of Mars retrograde in Capricorn. My one piece of advice? MOVE SLOW. Make sure that you are really putting in the work to create well developed plans. Also be true to yourself. With all the retrograde energies in Capricorn if you are not being honest this will come back to bite you as we move into the fall.

Aug 23 Sun enters Virgo

FINALLY, all of that energy you wanted to put into being hypercritical and nitpick at yourself and everyone else can come out to play. It’s gleaning season. Time to review what you have planted since March to see what is worth being kept and what needs to go in the compost bin. If you have some type A or Earth sign friends this is their time to shine. Have a real conversation with them (you may have to pay them…Earth signs don’t play with their money) about what you’ve been working on and what your long term goals are. They will help you to see clearly what is and is not working. From there you can put your energy towards what actually serves you. This will help you make progress towards meeting your goals. This is the season of discernment. Don’t worry you’ll weigh it all out in a month as we balance out our doing and resting energy.

Aug 25 Jupiter sequiquadrate Chiron

Aug 26 Full Moon in Pisces

Check back soon for the Full Moon in Pisces reading.

Aug 27 Mars goes Direct

Our second planet to go direct this month. Mercury started off the end of retrograde season shifting our energy from reflection to movement. Mars direct allows us to start making moves on what was reviewed when Mars retrograde moved into Capricorn. The seeds have been planted and Capricorn is here to help us push through the inertia of fear towards the satisfaction of productivity. Take advantage of this when you can because as we move into fall you’ll be feeling the chill vibes as we slow down for the feminine’s trip into the underworld.

Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer: Attachments and Forgiveness

New Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in Cancer

Greetings beloveds,

Woooo it’s been quite a year so far huh? I hope that you all are taking care of yourselves. Remember self-care, self-care, self-care!! Alright here’s your breakdown for the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

  • Solar Eclipse 20 degrees Cancer – July 13, 2018
  • Solar Eclipse 15 degrees Capricorn – January 6, 2019
  • Solar Eclipse 10 degrees Cancer – July 02, 2019
  • Lunar Eclipse 24 degrees Capricorn – July 16, 2019
  • Solar Eclipse 4 degrees Capricorn – December 26, 2019
  • Lunar Eclipse 20 degrees Cancer – January 10, 2020
  • Solar Eclipse 0 degrees Cancer – June 21, 2020 (Summer Solstice/Cancer) *
  • Lunar Eclipse 13 degrees Capricorn – July 5, 2020

This is the corresponding eclipse in the Cancer/Capricorn series listed above. Cancer and Capricorn dance between the day and the night, our conscious and subconscious. Cancer takes us into the womb and the home. A space that often can serve as a safe haven as well as a space of great trauma. It all depends on our personal, familial, and ancestral experiences of home. Have you ever written the story of your family? Explored what home meant to your parents, grandparents, or great grandparents? Within our families there are patterns of behaviors, emotions, perspectives of viewing the world and each other. We inherit these things through our cellular memory and how we are raised. It is also where we develop our initial sense of self. Those formative years where home may have been a very solid real place or one that exists in our minds. Either way, home, nurturing, the womb, and the mother archetype are the themes of a Cancer Eclipse.

Capricorn moves us into our role in the world. Our our understanding of home expands to our purpose. What has shaped us creates the foundation for who we are and what we do. Yet, as we grow and mature moving through the Zodiac we begin to understand how much more to us there this beyond our home. Capricorn brings the light of the summer into the darkness of winter. That even when we feel we have gone beyond saving there is grace for us. A chance for us to try again. Ruled by the Planet Saturn, Capricorn is all about structure, stability, and purpose. What you do and who you are matters. They are always here for the come up and desire to obtain more. More growth, more power, more compassion, more love, more influence but they must have to work for what they want. They honor the struggle, the sacrifice, the upward climb. Capricorn takes the trauma from our childhood and turns it into gold. Are you ready to turn your pain into possibilities? Are you ready to hold the darkness in the light?

This new moon review what you are attached to. What are you bound to in this life? Money, love, fame, knowledge, freedom, family? What drives you and influences the decisions that you make? If you are unaware of your attachments just take note of where you spend most of your time ad what you think about the most then imagine that you must let them go. What is your reaction? You might feel relief, frightened, angry, sad, joy, or even panic. There are several forms of attachment which I will discuss in the next post.

For now, remember that love is the basis of all. It fills every part of our being. Love will keep you during these changing times. As we do our work this week we move further into our purpose. Into being at one with our multidimensional selves. As Cancer and Capricorn have shown us the separation between our light and dark, inner child and adult, work and home selves are all one. Just different facets of the same crystal.

See you on Wednesday for the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer ritual.
