After intense week of soul surfing I am on my tippy toes delightful looking forward to merge with illuminating New Moon in Pisces on Saturday 1.March 2014 and after quite some challenging planetary roller-coaster rides in Jan and February I believe we all cant wait for a piece of heavenly tranquility and contentment. This New Moon is like a soul balm where we will have brilliant, easy going opportunity to plant nourishing seeds of new empowering habits and unconditional self-love. What makes me especially in love with this New Moon is exact trine with Jupiter in Cancer on 10 degrees. This multiplies abundant, expansive healing energy x 10, prepare your cups to be overflowing with bliss and expanded consciousness, especially If you have been working diligently over the past weeks on cleansing your soul from all which hindered your magnificence. This New Moon is also very generous and brings opportunities and favors being “lucky” in the matters of the heart and money.
For me this lunation completes big water trine with my natal Uranus in Scorpio on 10 degrees in my second house of money & self-value and I have unexpected big fat check on its way in the post. I am most tempted to book my ticket to Vegas this Friday and push my luck as far as it goes:) Have your birth charts ready and mark where this New Moon falls for you. We will all feel abundant soul blessings of this lunation, however if you happen to have planets between 9 to 11 degrees in Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio just SMILE :)

Nudged by recent sexstile of transiting Pluto to my Moon I felt pull to revisit remarkable book “Hades Moon” written by Judy Hall. It is an insightful, must book for anyone born with Moon in aspect to Pluto or Moon in Scorpio.
Using mythology, archetypal symbolism, and a wealth of case histories, The Hades Moon provides important new material and penetrating insight into the many facets of this major, transformative contact between the intimate and emotional Moon and the remote, deeply enigmatic Pluto. The story of Pluto-Moon contacts is the eternal saga of birth, death, and rebirth; abandonment and rejection; karma, transformation, and new life. No other planetary contact has such a depth of trauma, compulsion, and alienation. No other aspect has quite the same metamorphic and healing potential. Judy Hall explains why Pluto-Moon aspects are so important, and gives a description of the Hades Moon through the signs. She explores the Pluto cycle, Pluto from incarnation to initiation, Pluto in the Houses, and Pluto transits and the Hades Moon. She delves into the emotional issues of alienation, abandonment, rejection, and adoption. She also explores the archetype of the dark mother and shows how to trace enmeshed family patterns. Throughout the book, Hall offers information about flower essences and other techniques that can help people handle Hades Moon energy.
I have Pluto on Asc in exact inconjuct (150 degrees) with Moon in Pisces and I bought this book 13 years ago when I was trying to make some sense out of daunting nightmares I was going through. In 2000 when transiting Pluto has for the first time swept across my Neptune(3-th house) and squared my Moon and Mars in Pisces( 6-th house). It was one the best things which could of happen to me and it was also “necessity” which has altered my life forever, but as you can imagine in a good Pluto fashion, Pluto made sure in those 3 years no stone was left unturned and I was so heavenly unaware of what sort of chain events and experiences I was about to met. Back then I have just started self-employment and at first everything was going fine until I was swept with strong unexplainable anxieties which where lasting for about 6 months, in following year I moved countries(which was one of the best things I ever did), I got married, I had to face my acute pregnancy phobia and I opened up my family Pandora’s box, which took ages to clear out. As at the same time Pluto was transiting my Neptun in the 3-th house my mind has received very beneficial long lasting deep massage and my interest in astrology, psychology and spirituality has blossomed.
For this new cycle of Pluto-Moon transit I am expecting it to be easier to handle as it’s a sexstile but then at the same time its bashing my Venus-Pluto opposition across my asc-des axis already for a year and another year is remaining. Only conclusion I can come to is: “Lord of underworld loves me”. Apart from Hades Moon, there are few other great reading resources on Pluto in birth chart: Healing Pluto problems by Donna Cunningham and Pluto by transit: Bill Tierney has a great Pluto book Alive and Well with Pluto and there is a great section on Pluto transits in Howard Sasports book Gods of Change.

Great song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGe0GvtQZGQ , great performance and great name for her 2006 tour “I AM NOT DEAD” . “The “I’m Not Dead Tour” began in North America in nightclubs and theatres. Pink explained, “Small gigs, that’s where it’s at [...] You can feel everyone’s sweat, it’s just so close and intimate. It’s stinky, it’s smoky, it’s good.”
I have never before checked out Pink birth chart until this moment on 1 January 2014 and New Moon in Capricorn entwined in a big Cardinal T- Square with Mars, Pluto, Mercury. Pink is world wide known for her “rebel” image and she is born in sign of Virgo, hehe but dont get fooled easily, she has got some real raw force here with Moon in Aries opposing Pluto at the apex point of “striving pattern” + Mars in Cancer at apex point of T-square with Moon and Pluto. Fascinating birth chart, there is so much more which it could be said, O yea Pink, we love it:) For all astrology lovers, here you can check out her birth chart below and few more biography details http://www.biography.com/people/pink-562098. Enjoy

My recent most valuable learned lesson through October and November 2013:
To keep on forging forward fearlessly in *despite* of all fears. There are many times when *spite* is highly inappropriate response to life experiences and there are times when we can use *spite* in a creative way to unlock our indestructible core to withstand any adversity. Sometimes life is like a jungle where only fittest survive. Either we take our power in our own hands or something else takes power over us and while we engage in our *mortal combats* it is vital to loosen up our grip a bit and not to be taking life so seriously. Positive, fun infused attitude makes it so much easier to bridge any chasm. I mean it is not like we are going to come out alive from this life anyway, arent we? Its only rock and roll baby

Transiting Saturn has entered the sign of Scorpio on October 5, 2012 and I am revisiting the meaning of this planetary position as recently at the start of November 2013 transiting Saturn in Scorpio has crossed once more over my second house cusp and inconjucted(150 degrees) my Venus in Aries while stationary Mercury in Scorpio has opposed my (Chiron in Taurus). It plunged me into Scorpion realms, where it’s not possible to stay above it all, with situations “in theory but with a core theme of transforming what’s toxic and ineffective. Indeed it felt like huge soul de-tox in my area of self esteem and my values and to be purging from addictive attachments was hell of a job. After all havoc was done and dusted in a week, it was followed by distinctive soberness and sense of strength, which I don’t recall having experienced ever before. There is no place for blame and there is a lot of wisdom in following from Kahlil Gilbran: “Much of your pain is self-chosen.It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility: For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen. ” If i was ever to compose my own bitter potion yes, it would be made of Saturn and Chiron.
GENERAL MEANING FOR SATURN IN SCORPIO: On a soul level so much will rise from the depths: resentments, secrets, sober realities, woundedness, patterns of abuse, themes about sex and intimacy, power and control.
On a practical, material level our focus will be on enhancing our sense of financial safety and sharing of our resources with others.Growing of our finances will be tested and anything that is not providing long lasting security as you expected will be trimmed and tidied. The star signs which will experience transit of Saturn in Scorpio strongest are fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius but with astrology there is never such a clear cut possible, depending on the unique placement of other 9 planets in your birth chart you too could be experiencing influence of this planetary wave!!!!
Transiting Saturn is a 2 to 2 & 1/2 year cycle and takes 28-30 years to travel around the entire zodiac. Saturn will stay in sign of Scorpio until September 17, 2015.The last cycle of transiting Saturn in Scorpio was from November 30, 1982 to November 17, 1985.

Body painting is great as an art form and human body is a beautiful canvas to express so many ideas. I came across this amazing body art by Australian artist Rudi Everts – pretty remarkable, eh? It’s wonderful how some of them manage to deceive you – you can’t recognise human being on quite few of them! The artist behind these is Australian Body Paint Artist Rudi Everts. Which zodiac sign are you? Which one do you like the most? Which of these body paintings you think stands above all others? I’m Aries, but the coolest one I see here is Scorpio! Have fun!

I choose to make changes, instead of having an apology.
I choose to be motivated not manipulated.
I choose to be useful, not used.
I choose self-esteem, no self-pity.
I choose to excel, not compete.
I choose to listen to the voice within, and not the opinion of random people.
I chose to live and exist.

Emerald Table’ of Hermes Trismegistus
That which is above is as that which is below
And that which is below is as that which is above. For performing the miracle of the One Thing.
This much quoted phrase from the ancient ‘Emerald Table’ of Hermes Trismegistus, captures the astrological worldview. It doesn’t mean that astrology is about making divisions like “good signs/bad signs”. On the contrary, astrology is about integration and understanding. Those large cosmic beings above – the planets, and the small cosmic beings below – humans, are all part of ‘the One Thing’. Astrology helps us understand the threads of inter-connection.
The Emerald Table goes on to outline the path of progress, for “performing the miracle” of consciously integrating the spiritual and physical dimensions of life. This famous document is at once an astrological template and a guide for personal transformation. Progress could be defined as refining your astrological substance. Understanding what you have to work with, is a good beginning.
