Wish Upon A Star- Venus joins Jupiter

Wish upon a Star: Venus joins Jupiter this week

August 18th Venus joins Jupiter in the zodiac sign of Leo.

This happens every year, however this year the two pair so close together they may appear as one.

“They will be so close together that it’s going to be quite a striking sight,” said Robin Scagell, vice-president of the Society for Popular Astronomy.

“Undoubtedly people could mistake them for a UFO, especially being so low down. They might appear to move around because of the distortion effect of the atmosphere.”

It will be the closest conjunction of Venus and Jupiter since 2000 but although the planets appear to be kissing-distance apart as seen from the Earth, they are separated by hundreds of millions of miles.

Venus and Jupiter pair up about once a year on average, but their conjunctions vary greatly in separation and visibility. Some are missed completely because they occur in daylight.

The next conjunction between the two planets is due to occur on 30 June next year, but will be less close.

During Monday’s conjunction, Venus will appear six times brighter than Jupiter even though its diameter is less than a tenth that of the larger planet, which measures 86,881 miles across.

That is because Venus is much closer to the Earth and also nearer the Sun, causing its clouds to be lit more intensely.

wish-upon-a-starWish Upon A Star

As Venus and Jupiter are the two benefic planets, it’s an extremely good day to ‘Wish upon a Star’- to ask for what you truly want in your life.

Then write it down. Our wishes are unable to manifest unless we put them into the world of form. Carry the list with you, or place it somewhere that you will be reminded.

Deepak Chopra calls this The Law of Intention and Desire. The ideal time to write your list would be after meditation. Once we have our list- I call it asking the angels what we want for Christmas- we can look at it before we go to sleep, and when we wake up.

I do practise this-albeit not to the letter- and it does work. Our minds are powerful, and I believe that we create our reality. This is a really powerful principle because it means if we don’t like our life we can change it.

Another opportunity to Wish Upon a star occurs on Saturday August 23rd when the Moon will join Jupiter at 14.46 BST. (This happens once a month, but  this time Venus will still be close by.)

 Sun into Virgo

The other major astrological event this week is the shift of the Sun from fiery Leo, into the earth sign of Virgo on Saturday at 5.45am. We will enter the dark side of the moon by then, a monthly cycle when we are meant to go within, to contemplate and meditate. More on this in next week’s video.

TIP: The energy of next week will start with the New Moon in Virgo, followed just hours later by Mars conjunct Saturn. Keep well rested over the Bank Holiday and build up your reserves of energy. Over doing it can really take its toll.

August Supermoon in Aquarius -Have you been playing small?

August SuperMoon 2014- Have you been playing small?

Use the Super Full Moon energy to trust in yourself

This is a challenging supermoon in Aquarius as it makes a square to Saturn in Scorpio. We are all being asked to push through resistance and be the heart centred star we came to be.

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term “supermoon” is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology*. Wikipedia

As Venus moves into Leo this week we have 5 planets in this fixed fire sign. Leo at its best is heart centred, noble and wants to play. Jupiter in Leo says its time to take a risk, to ‘big’ yourself up, to feel confident and trust in yourself.

My question is:-Have you been playing small?

Blowing Your Own Trumpet

Blow Your Own Trumpet

This week I have been aware of how many of my clients underestimate how great they are- for fear of being grandiose.

This month is THE time to embrace the power of the Sun and blow your own trumpet.

Leo is the King, the leader with passion.

Mars in Scorpio, along with Saturn, is making a challenging aspect to this Full moon in Aquarius. Resistance to change is strong.

Prepare for the Mars/Saturn conjunction on August 25th by meditation and asking your Higher Mind to transform all your limiting beliefs around power and allow your natural power as a child of God to shine:-

  • “I’m not good enough”
  • “People won’t want to hear what I have to say”
  • “Power corrupts”
  • “I cant charge for spiritual work”

At this time in the world leaders are desperately needed. Heart centred Leadership is answering the calls for help. I believe to want peace in the world means we first have to find peace in our hearts.

August 4th Week Ahead- Mercury in Leo

Mercury in Leo August 3rd Week Ahead

Mercury in Leo is the planet to watch this week.

Leo is the sign of royalty, and the shadow is the belief that – as the King  – everyone should bow down and worship him. Its pride, self inflation and the ego.

Mercury, the Messenger is now moving at top speed. It moves from 5 degrees Leo to 19 degrees Leo this week and makes 7 aspects, bringing each of the outer planets to our attention before meeting the Sun on Friday.

The events in the world will reflect this.

Last week on 1st August a cease fire was agreed in Gaza, only to be broken a few hours later. Mercury had just entered Leo and was squaring Mars. 5 hours later the agreement was broken, just as Mars made an exact square (to the minute) with Jupiter.

Mars is anger, the God of war, Jupiter religion. Both sides believe they have God/Truth on their side. Mercury in Leo is showing us that words and agreements have no meaning unless backed up by the selfless desire for peace.

How can we create a peaceful world?

I believe that the world is my mirror. Taking sides in this conflict – that one side is right, the other wrong is a lose/lose situation. What is it in our human psyche that we are so addicted to the drama of war? How can we, as individuals, create peace in the world?

The answer is that we integrate the 2 warring factions in our minds. And that we use the healing power of forgiveness.

This story springs to my mind:-.

wolvesThe Two Wolves

A Cherokee elder was teaching his grandchildren about life.

He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me… it is a terrible fight between two wolves.

One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, hatefulness, and lies.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, humbleness, kindness, friendship, generosity, faith, and truth.

This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too.”

The children thought about it for a minute. Then one child asked his grandfather,

“Which wolf will win?”

The Cherokee elder replied…

“The one you feed.”

Transits of Mercury

Sunday 3rd Aug: Mercury square Mars in Scorpio

Monday 4th Aug: Mercury inconjunct Neptune in Pisces

Wed 6th Aug: Mercury inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn

Thursday 7th Aug: Mercury trine Neptune in Pisces

Friday 8th Aug: Mercury conjunct the Sun at 15 degrees Leo. Mercury enters the Throne Room of the King. Now- until it turns retrograde on 5th October -it will be the Scout. More information see

Saturday Aug 9th Mercury inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, square Saturn in Scorpio.

The inconjunct is a stressful aspect between planets in elements that don’t get on. (Its 150 degrees) It asks for release, for moving into a new situation and letting go. Healing is possible when Neptune or Chiron are involved, but it does involve us letting go of past hurts and changing our mind.

The question is: Would you rather be right or happy? Who do you need to forgive?

Other transits

4th: Sun inconjunct Pluto

5th: Saturn trine Chiron POSITIVE Major aspect-healing is possible

7th: Mars trine Neptune POSITIVE Take action to advance your dreams, to connect with the Divine

9th: Sun trine Uranus POSITIVE Conscious originality, innovation.  Then later in the day Sun inconjunct Chiron Let go of pride

10th: FULL MOON in Aquarius at 18 degrees

Mars into Scorpio

Passion Ignites Mars into Scorpio

July 26th at 02.25UT (3.25BST)

This is a yet another major shift of energy for all 12 signs as Mars is the planet of action. It has been in Libra since December 8th 2013, a sign noted for diplomacy and relationship.

Now Mars can aid us in getting a move on, in giving us a firm direction.

All signs have planets that belong to them, that rule or govern them.

Mars governs the fire sign Aries, the water sign Scorpio and is exalted in the earth sign Capricorn. It is weak in Libra, and unhappy in Taurus and Cancer. Mars by sign and house in our birth charts shows how we get what we want.

Are you direct or do you get your needs met with subtle hints? The masculine mind tends to be more direct because- broadly speaking – ‘men are from Mars’.

In my last webinar I discussed Jupiter moving into Leo moving through the houses of your birth chart bringing abundance, growth and wisdom to that area in your life.

Now Mars will be able to promote the emotional energy that living your soul purpose needs.

Scorpio has emotional depth. The phrase is ‘I Desire’, its happiest delving into the unconscious as co-ruler is Pluto god of the Underworld.

So the question is “What do you most desire?” Mars can help you get it!

The Sun joins Jupiter: In the News

One remarkable woman- Mariam Ibrahim-was in the news on Thursday as she flew into safety and had an audience with the Pope.

She stuck by her religious convictions (Jupiter rules religion) even though she was threatened with 100 lashes and execution. She gave birth while imprisoned, her legs shackled to the floor. The world was outraged, and -thank God -on Thursday she left Sudan and flew to Italy.

Her birth chart shows she is a Scorpio (born 3/11/1987 in Sudan time unknown), with the Sun conjunct Pluto giving her the fortitude to withstand the dreadful ordeal. She has Jupiter in Aries,

You can see her having the audience with the Pope on the BBC website

The Pope thanked her and her family for their “courageous and constant witness of faith”

July 21st Saturn in Scorpio

July20th2014 week ahead

Saturn in Scorpio moves direct- Have you been feeling frustrated?

The Hermit in the tarot exemplifies Saturn's journey

The Hermit in the tarot exemplifies Saturn’s journey

The major news this week is Saturn is finally turning direct after 4 months retrograde.
Saturn went retrograde on March 3rd at 23 degrees Scorpio and changes direction at 16 degrees Scorpio.

During this time projects may well have been delayed, or encountered obstacles, especially since Mars was also retrograde from March 1st until May 20th.

We have all been sorely tested this year.

Saturn rules over time, patience and discipline. It also shows us our fear and resistance in moving forward. It can keep us stuck in the past.

With the difficult aspect (an inconjunct) with Uranus in Aries through July there has been tremendous resistance to letting go.

With all the visible planets now moving direct in the heavens and Jupiter now in the exuberant sign of Leo, we can celebrate and start a renaissance in our lives.

This fire energy is further boosted when plus the Sun changes sign into Leo on Tuesday. watch the video for more info.

To work with the cosmic astrological weather gives us a huge advantage. There is one soul group that has been especially troubled, that I have been helping recently.

Neptune in Scorpio- Is This Your Soul Group?

Have you been trapped in meaninglessness? Card from 'The Enlightenment Pack' by Chuck Spezzano

Have you been trapped in meaninglessness? Card from ‘The Enlightenment Pack’ by Chuck Spezzano

When a major planet changes direction it stays at the same degree for weeks on end. Hence Saturn stays at 16 degrees from July 1st until August 11th.

Those with Neptune in Scorpio are a soul group, and Saturn’s transit passing over Neptune has been especially tough.

The retrograde cycle will pass over Neptune 3 times, if you were born between Feb 1963- Nov 1968 (approx.). Added to this you will have Chiron in Pisces returning to its position at your birth.

This transit of the planet of Reality (Saturn) over the planet of Transcendence and Dreams, can result in free floating anxiety, confusion, self- doubt and uncertainty. It can lead to negative moods, a crushing depression and meaninglessness. It can result in intense spiritual suffering and self-sacrifice.

The way forward is to work with Saturn’s energy, rather than be taken down by it. It’s time to reformulate your vision, to put effort into a spiritual practise, whether that’s meditation, yoga or gardening. And to know that this too will pass.

Listen to your heart, and ask your Higher Mind-’What is my meaning? The truth is that you are a child of God.

One book I highly recommend to understand resistance (aka Saturn) is ‘The War of Art ‘ by Steven Pressfield.

Written primarily for writers he writes eloquently about fear, resistance and our soul’s purpose.

“Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do.
Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.

Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates to the strength of Resistance.

Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That’s why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there’d be no Resistance.”
“The part that needs healing is our personal life. Personal life has nothing to do with work. Besides, what better way of healing than to find our center of self-sovereignty? Isn’t that the whole point of healing?”

― Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

He also writes about The Muse, angels and the power of prayer to help in his work. a great book and easy to dip into-each chapter is no more than a few pages long

My final quote this week is:-

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it. Begin it now.” — W. H. Murray.”

blessings, Pam x
