June astrological forecast

June 2019

 RUNE OF THE MONTH: Uruz “support”. From time to time, we all need encouragement and the sense that our backs are covered no matter what. Taking the time to appreciate ourselves and others, offer a positive word, have helpful thoughts and want the best for all, is where a happy society begins. Let us focus this month on random acts of kindness and whatever our circumstances seem, trust in benevolent outcomes.

 

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until August 11. Its shadow period extends until November 6th. The degrees covered in June (20º38’–17º03’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “A child and a dog wearing borrowed glasses”, “In an old-fashioned northern village men cut the ice of a frozen pond for use during the summer”, “Pelicans menaced by the behavior and refuse of men seek after areas for bringing up their young”, “Children playing on the beach, their heads protected by sunbonnets”. It is our integrity that helps us navigate the chaos, illusions, lies and corruption of our environment with dignity and elegance. Even in the midst of illusions and turmoil, there is always a place of inner peace and power from which, like the phoenix from its ashes, we can rise again, stronger than ever before. 

 

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month until September 18 between 19º42’ and 17º53’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The images associated with these degrees are: “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service”, “A five year old child carrying a bag filled with groceries”, “The union jack flag flies from a British warship”. A month to fulfill our duties and obligations with dignity and courage. The more quietly responsible, disciplined and grounded we are, the more profound our growth will be.

 

Neptune turns retrograde on June 21st at 18º44’ Pisces, and will remain so until November 27. Its shadow period will last until March 17, 2020. The image representing this degree is: “A master instructing his disciple”. Our attention this month should turn to our inner spiritual growth. As the saying goes: “when the disciple is ready, the master appears”.  The opposite is also true. Masters come in all shapes and forms. It could be a child, a pet or a painful event in our lives forcing us to re-examine our motivations and re-direct the course of our actions. As we open to the teachings crossing our path, we start to change in ways defying our own understanding.

 

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degree traveled in June (22º49’ – 22º14’ Capricorn) is symbolized by: “A soldier receiving two awards for bravery in combat”. We are required to face with courage the darkest places within ourselves and not back down in the face of adversity. Our power is being tested, as is our determination. Mastery of self is rewarded.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Saturday 5/18, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Scorpio. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

Sunday 6/2: Venus Trine Pluto (8:38 PM)

A wonderful day for a passionate date. A relationship begun today feels predestined, going much deeper than a mere physical attraction. A feeling of past life recognition permeates that encounter and we could become fascinated by that person. In an existing romantic involvement we become aware of our dilemmas or blocks to intimacy. Our charisma is greatly enhanced today. Inasmuch as we listen to our intuition, a financial deal is particularly conducive to acquiring wealth and power. 

 

Tuesday 6/4: Mercury enters Cancer (1:05 PM till 6/26)

During these next 3 weeks, communications are more subjective than objective. We could feel more than we think and tend to take comments more personally than we usually do. We are concerned with family, food and safety. Our imagination is triggered. Excellent for designers and visual artists. A day to enjoy caring exchanges with children and animals.

 

Friday 6/7: Mercury Sextile Uranus (7:16 AM)

Communications and social encounters are lively, varied and exciting. Our curiosity is triggered by unusual people walking to the sound of their own drummer. New intellectual horizons open before us. Attention to details may not be our forte today as we may be too excited or scattered to focus on little things.  

 

Saturday 6/8: Venus enters Gemini (6:37 PM till 7/3)

During the next 3 weeks, our social life should become lighter and more varied. We could seek, or be invited to, fun gatherings exposing us to people who expand our intellectual horizons. A romantic attraction could be exciting but short lived for lack of true commitment. Money comes and goes.  

 

Sunday 6/9: Sun Square Neptune (12:34 PM)

We could feel vaguely anxious today for no logical reason. A situation or a person could leave us uneasy without us really being able to pinpoint why. We could feel drained by circumstances and unusually confused as to what next step to take. Best to lay low today and avoid contacts with characters prone to deception.

 

Monday 6/10: Sun Opposition Jupiter (8:28 AM)

A wonderful day to congratulate ourselves for our achievements and keep expanding our dreams. Our success is measured by our integrity and our self-worth. We could be invited to an elegant gathering. If we can, best to delay an important expense as it may today be a lot more costly than it is worth.

 

Thursday 6/13: Mars Trine Neptune (11:12 PM)

A day of reverie and becoming fascinated by artists or inspiring spiritual people who trigger our imagination and enrich our consciousness. We could be particularly susceptible to alcohol and drugs. Best to keep those under control. Wonderful for an idyllic vacation in a dream location that enhances our appreciation for beauty and helps us unwind in magical ways.

 

Sunday 6/16: Mercury Trine Neptune (4:43 AM), Mercury Opposition Saturn (7:00 AM), Jupiter Square Neptune (8:18 AM)

While something we really wanted may come to pass, we could feel pessimistic and somewhat depressed. Oscillating between our visions and a grey reality can take its toll. Financial matters could be disappointing. Someone in our life is likely to be deceptive. We could feel anxious without quite understanding why. Important to stay realistic without losing sight of our dreams.

 

Tuesday 6/18: Saturn Sextile Neptune (4:40 AM), Mercury Conjunct Mars (9:05 AM)

A day to strike a positive balance between our dreams and reality, thus manifesting our visions in concrete reality. A stable condition in our lives could be dissolving. Allowing it to disappear without us resisting, helps us find within the rubbles the seeds of a new becoming. Our exchanges with others are particularly direct today. We courageously call a spade a spade and leave no uncertainty as to what our intentions are. We should however beware when driving, as impulsive reactions could cause harm.

 

Wednesday 6/19: Mercury Opposition Pluto (3:52 AM), Mars Opposition Pluto (8:21 PM)

Best to compromise today, keep our opinions to ourselves and meet others mid-way. Being too forceful in our communications could create sharp animosities. We may feel pushed to make important changes leading to new beginnings. A cycle ends while another starts that bring us closer to our objectives.   

 

Friday 6/21: Neptune turns retrograde (7:36 AM), Summer Solstice/the Sun enters Cancer (8:54 AM till July 22)

Regarding Neptune retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. During the next month, our sensitivity is heightened. Artistically inclined individuals are drawn to cooking, drawing and painting. Decorating our house, making our home comfortable, nurturing and safe becomes a priority. Taking care of children and creating harmonious family relationships occupies much of our energy. A wonderful time to pamper ourselves and cherish those we love.

 

Monday 6/24: Venus Square Neptune (2:59 AM)

A relationship which seems too good to be true, could indeed be just that. A person we are intimately involved with could prove untrustworthy and deceptive, confused and confusing. Delusions of grandeur could mar money matters and make us believe in pipe dreams. We need to beware of people promising great financial benefits that are nothing but scams aimed at depleting us of our resources.

 

Wednesday 6/26: Mercury enters Leo (5:20 PM till 7/19)

During the next 3 weeks, our way of thinking and talking is more dramatic. We could be attracted to the limelight as well as to creative art forms enabling us to express our uniqueness. Our generosity of spirit shines great light and warmth upon those we encounter.

 

Thursday 6/27: Sun Sextile Uranus (10:44 AM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Plans could be wrecked. Unusual circumstances could occur. Exciting people could cross our path offering opportunities we had never thought of. The more flexible and present to each moment we are, the greater the benefits of this exciting and freeing day.

 

Wishing you an amazing month of June!

 

In Loving Light.

May astrological forecast

May 2019 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Hagalaz “challenges”. Bumps in the road

both test our resolve and keep us on our toes. Without them, our

journey would become stale and probably even downright boring.

Projection into the unknown helps us unearth the skills and talents we

may not even have known we had, which in turn promote inner growth.

 

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until August 11. Its

shadow period extends until November 6 th . The degrees covered in

May (23º41’ to 20º45’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian

Symbols by: “A bluebird perched on the gate of a cottage”, “A group

of immigrants as they fulfill the requirements of entrance into a new

country”, “A Chinese laundry”, “A child and a dog wearing borrowed

eyeglasses”. We are being asked to examine our level of ethics,

tolerance and compassion. What is our attitude towards foreigners

and people who are different from us, in general? What do we believe

 

in? Do we walk our talk? Are we as transparent as we would like to

think we are? Are we free from what others think, or do we fake it

so that we might be seen as belonging? How true to ourselves are we?

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month until September 18

between 20º31’ and 19º45’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until

December 24. The images associated with these degrees are: “A

relay race”, “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service”. We

are being challenged in our mastery, our self-sufficiency and our

discipline in becoming all that we are in our divinity. As we help

ourselves, the heavens help us. Initially, we only have ourselves to

rely on. The journey towards enlightenment is paved with good

intentions, but only do our commitment and unrelenting efforts bring

us to inner and outer completion.

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its

shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degrees

traveled in May (23º08’ – 22º50’ Capricorn) are symbolized by: “A

woman entering a convent” and “A soldier receiving two awards for

bravery in combat”. Passion and commitment are one and the same. No

matter what path we choose, it is by embracing it wholeheartedly

that we shall reap the laurels of recognition and find inner

fulfillment.

with any planet before entering the following sign-):

Wednesday 5/1: Mercury Square Saturn (1:50 AM)

We could feel laden with responsibilities, somewhat discouraged and

having to deal with tasks requiring great seriousness of purpose. Best

to keep quiet, tackle the work that needs to be done with focus and

discipline.

 

Thursday 5/2: Mercury Square Pluto (2:49 PM), Mercury Trine

Jupiter (8:59 PM)

Communications could lead to dead-ends. We are likely to come up

against strong personalities. Forcing issues is not helpful. Best to lay

low, keep our opinions to ourselves and focus on unity. Later tonight,

we have to be careful not to give in to the opposite and promise more

than we can deliver. Our exuberance and positive energy open new

doors.

Sunday 5/5: Mars Opposition Jupiter (2:57 PM)

Not a good day to gamble, nor go on a shopping spree as we could end

up foolishly spending more money than what we are buying is worth.

Great for a dynamic adventure. Our vital energy is at an all times

high. Excellent also for defending our ideas with courage and

panache.

Monday 5/6: Mercury enters Taurus (11:25 AM) till 5/21

During the next 3 weeks, our thinking is practical. We tend to stay

with our thoughts and ideas for a while before making an enlightened

decision. We could be drawn to nature and inspired to protect

Mother Earth.

Tuesday 5/7: Venus Square Saturn (6:26 AM)

Social encounters could feel more like work than fun. Our

relationships could be strained and somewhat disappointing when not

downright depressing. We could feel lonelier than usual. Best to rely

on ourselves, plan a project with attention to its details and focus on

insuring our security.

 

Wednesday 5/8: Mercury Conjunct Uranus (7:22 AM), Sun

Sextile Neptune (7:53 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Changes in plans disrupt our

schedule. Unusual social encounters open new doors. Exciting ideas

free us from the known. We could feel particularly inspired. Artists

could come up with some of their best work. Channelers and healers

are likely to experience major breakthroughs in their perceptions.

Thursday 5/9: Venus Trine Jupiter (9:56 AM), Venus Square

Pluto (10:18 AM)

Our social life is particularly enriching and adventurous today. We

feel generous, warm hearted, tolerant and positive. We could be

invited to some elegant event that enables us to dress up and mingle

with interesting people, some of whom are connected to other

countries. We should however be careful not to give in to jealousy,

envy or possessiveness. Emotional insecurities could surface either in

ourselves or others, revealing where blocks to intimacy lie. Using

common sense in our financial transactions is a must today as we

could be drawn into spending more than we have or fall prey to a

scheme that is not as honest as it looks.

Saturday 5/11: Sun Trine Saturn (2:19 AM)

A day to get noticed by those in positions of power. We stand in our

mastery, are reliable, efficient, grounded and focused. Our excellent

impression on people in positions of power.

Monday 5/13: Sun Trine Pluto (8:04 PM)

stand in our power and mastery to make real changes both in

ourselves and our environment.

A day of balance of the masculine and the feminine within us. Our

romantic relationships are peaceful and harmonious. Social contacts

are pleasant and uplifting. Moderate efforts create positive financial

rewards.

Mercury Sextile Neptune (6:21 PM), Mars enters Cancer (8:10

PM) till July 1

During the next two months, Cancer natives are favored. Our actions

aim towards ensuring our safety and security, as well as protecting

those we cherish. During the next month, our sensuality is enhanced.

We seek comfort, beauty and peace. We are attracted to nature and

the simple pleasures of the body. Nurturing ourselves brings a great

sense of contentment and well-being. Today, more specifically, is

particularly inspiring for artists, healers and channelers who are able

to access higher dimensions and perceive, as well as share, the magic

of life.

Thursday 5/16: Mercury Trine Saturn (4:09 PM)

A good day for clearing our desk of backlogged work. Our thoughts

and communications are serious and grounded. Our discipline and

focus are aimed at furthering our ambitions. We are particularly

efficient today.

 

Friday 5/17: Mercury Trine Pluto (10:46 PM)

We are able to X-ray situations and people. Our insights into existing

conditions are strong and clear. We could become the spokesperson

of a silent majority. Our words make a lasting impression on those we

meet. People trust what we say, sensing that it doesn’t come from

some book we read, but from the depths of our experience and

knowingness.

Saturday 5/18: Venus Conjunct Uranus (9:16 AM)

Our social life becomes interesting. We could encounter unusual,

highly individualistic characters enticing us to create more freedom

in our lives. We could get caught in a whirlwind romance that is fun

even if only short lived. Money comes to us unexpectedly, ushering

new opportunities.

attending a social event, mingling with new people, studying, reading

and exchanging interesting ideas.

Wednesday 5/22: Mars Sextile Uranus (7:46 AM)

We could feel bored with the usual routine. Bursts of physical energy

make us want to mix up our usual routine, try something new and/or

start an exciting new venture. Creative solutions are found to the

 

challenges at hand. We should however exercise caution when driving

or operating sharp objects.

Wednesday 5/29: Mercury Square Neptune (6:23 PM)

Not a good day to sign legal documents as we could miss the fine

print. We could feel a little confused, vaguely anxious and quite

dreamy. Misunderstandings might occur easily. A situation could seem

very different from what it really is. Someone could be less than

honest with us, revealing only half of the truth. Spiritual imagination

could take the place of common sense. Excellent really only for

artistic creativity. But otherwise, laying low may be a good choice

today, as we could also feel quite drained.

Thursday 5/30: Venus Sextile Neptune (9:51 AM), Mercury

Opposition Jupiter (8:12 PM)

Our senses are particularly elevated today, allowing us to see the

beauty in all things and connect in oneness to the divinity in all beings.

Artists are particularly inspired. A relationship begun today connects

us to another at a soul level. We should however beware of promising

more than we can deliver and falling for schemes too good to be true.

Thursday 5/31: Venus Trine Saturn (8:26 AM)

We don’t court illusions today and approach our relationships with

much realism. We are likely to walk away from a romantic involvement

that has been shaky for already some time, while a good one becomes

more solid. Sound financial decisions mark this day. We favor saving

rather than spending and are focused on ensuring our monetary

safety.

 Wishing you a magical month of May!

In Loving Light.

April astrological forecast

April 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz “compromise”. This month, making concessions without betraying our truth helps us restore or maintain harmony. As we meet others half way, honoring both our needs and those of another, we demonstrate our good will, thus helping strike a happy balance that benefits all involved.

 Jupiter turns retrograde on Wednesday April 10 till August 11. Its shadow period extends until November 6th. The degrees covered in April (24º21’-23º45’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “A chubby boy on a hobby-horse” and “A bluebird perched on the gate of a cottage”. A wonderful period of time to dream big and expand our horizons in ways enabling us to step out of our comfort zone. Embracing new experiences, traveling to places we have never been to before and studying a new topic of interest, are all great ways of creating more magic in our lives.

Pluto turns retrograde on Wednesday April 24 till October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degree traveled in April (23º08’Capricorn) is symbolized by: “A woman entering a convent”. A month to go deeply within, root ourselves in our power and focus on what is essential in our lives. A good time to simplify our daily reality, clear our closets of things that no longer serve us and give more importance to our spiritual life.

Saturn turns retrograde on Monday April 29 till September 18 at 20º31’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The image associated with this degree is: “A relay race”. Mastery requires that we become self-sufficient and take full responsibility for our actions. As we stand in our power, we become a strong link in the chain of humanity, and example for others of strength and structure.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Wednesday March 23rd, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Libra. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

Regarding Jupiter retrograde, please refer to the opening paragraph. Today, more specifically, we could feel somewhat depressed and disappointed.

Our ability to X-ray situations and people leads to interesting insights.

 

Thursday 4/11: Mercury Square Jupiter (9:18 PM)

Blind trust or arrogant self-confidence backfire today. We should avoid going to extremes and not promise more than we can deliver. Large expenses should only be made if we have the physical money to back them. Extravagant expectations prove disappointing.

 

Friday 4/12: Venus Sextile Saturn (8:08 AM)

A good day to reassess our relationships in a rational and lucid way. A good one becomes stronger. A shaky one, could dissolve. We are also more responsible financially. Coming up with a plan to clear our debts and start saving is particularly beneficial.

 

Saturday 4/13: Sun Square Pluto (1:04 AM)

Tuesday 4/16: Mercury enters Aries (11:01 PM till May 7th)

Saturday 4/20: the Sun enters Taurus (1:55 AM till May 21), Venus enters Aries (9:11 AM till May 15)

A good month for self-care, tending to our garden and smelling the roses. We could feel more grounded and practical than usual, yet emotionally be impulsive. We should be careful not to jump head on in a relationship, only to find out later that it wasn’t all we had imagined it to be.

 

Monday 4/22: Sun Conjunct Uranus (4:05 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Our need for freedom is particularly enhanced. Plans could suddenly change. The more flexible and present to the present we are, the more interesting this day is.

 

Wednesday 4/24: Pluto turns retrograde (11:45 AM till October 3)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Saturday 4/27: Mars Square Neptune (6:04 AM)

March astrological forecast

March 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Jera “harvest”. We reap what we sow. Good seeds result in strong plants. So do good emotions and good thoughts create positive circumstances. If we dislike certain aspects of our lives, it may be important to go back to what created such a reality and if we can, reverse certain of those choices by making new ones. In the origin of all things lies the key to their subsequent development.

Mercury is retrograde from March 5 till March 28 between 29º36’ and 18º08’ Pisces. Its shadow period remains until April 17th. We are called to revisit our perceptions of the divine. Mystical concepts are attractive. Projects requiring both imagination and inspiration return to the forefront. Artists and light workers are particularly favored. The natural development of our intuition and psychic abilities helps us see beyond the veil. We become particularly sensitive to music, vibrations and frequencies. Our nocturnal dreams could be specially vivid and even premonitory. 

 

Uranus enters Taurus on March 7, 2019 until April 27, 2026. The next seven years are key in reshaping completely our perception of money. The rampant corruption in the current banking system is likely to be exposed. New currencies develop. Original, humanitarian ideas lead to wealth. More and more projects involving people-helping-people create mutually beneficial financial situations. A deeper understanding of the laws of abundance enable many to reach the mastery that frees them from the matrix. We also become more concerned with the ecological situation of the Earth. Growing our own food through both ancient and futuristic technologies, protecting the sacredness of nature become a priority.

 

The Moon will be Void of Course (V/O –forming no major aspect with any planet before entering the following sign-):

  • On Saturday 3/2 between 10:47 AM and 11:06 AM: when the Moon enters Aquarius.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Tuesday February 19, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Virgo. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

 

On Wednesday 3/6, on the New Moon in Pisces, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 8:04 AM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

 

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Wednesday 3/20. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Libra at exactly 6:43 PM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

 

Friday 3/1: Venus Square Uranus (4:31 AM), Venus enters Aquarius (8:45 AM till 3/26)

Impulsive words and actions could lead to sudden alienations from loved ones. If we are not cautious enough, money could be lost suddenly. Unexpected abundance could also come in unusual ways requiring however that we do not collapse ourselves in this windfall and lose all sense of proportion. During the next month, friendship assumes a more important role than normal. Our social circle expands. We are more individualistic and drawn to eccentric characters. Modern art feels attractive.

 

Tuesday 3/5: Mercury turns retrograde (10:19 AM till March 28)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Wednesday 3/6: Uranus enters Taurus (0:35 AM till April 26, 2026), Sun Conjunct Neptune (5:01 PM)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.  We could feel somewhat dreamy today. Not such a good day for dealing with precise data and legal papers, but excellent for meditation, artistic activities, peace, beauty and harmony.

 

Friday 3/8: Sun Sextile Saturn (11:10 PM)

An excellent day to complete the tasks at hand, redefine our goals and further our ambitions. We are disciplined, focused, serious and grounded.  

 

Sunday 3/10: Mars Sextile Neptune (9:21 AM)

Unusual activities are attractive. We seek new experiences triggering our imagination and creativity. Impractical ideas stimulate our excitement only to very quickly fade into oblivion. A certain boredom, a vague dissatisfaction help us seek different opportunities.

 

Wednesday 3/13: Sun Sextile Pluto (7:25 AM), Sun Square Jupiter (6:29 PM)

A day to express our authority without forcing any issue. Cooperation helps us bring harmony to a group while respecting each person’s needs. We could be prone to exaggeration, buy a product largely overpriced or bite more than we can chew, but on the whole, if we remain grounded and stay without reasonable boundaries, we could find that we are able to accomplish much today.

 

Thursday 3/14: Mars Trine Saturn (3:01 AM), Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:48 PM)

Our actions are cautious and deliberate, enabling us to consolidate our goals and objectives. Communications are pleasant and direct.

 

Friday 3/15: Mercury Square Jupiter (4:17 PM)

We should beware to not promise more than we can deliver or believe blindly those who exaggerate a situation, turning all that glitters into gold. If we remain within healthy boundaries and keep our common sense intact, our positive energy can open interesting doors.

 

Saturday 3/16: Mercury Sextile Pluto (6:11 AM)

We are able today to X-ray situations and people. Collaboration produces much better results than forceful ultimatums. Our thoughts and words carry a special kind of charisma and magic that affect others deeply. We are drawn to metaphysics, are attracted by the mysteries of life, and are able to unravel much that was previously hidden from our consciousness.

 

Sunday 3/17: Mercury Sextile Mars (8:23 PM)

Communications are positive, direct and dynamic. We call a spade a spade and mean what we say. We have the courage of our beliefs and deal with the challenges at hand with energy and creativity. 

 

Wednesday 3/20: Mercury Sextile Saturn (7:28 AM), the Sun enters Aries (2:59 PM till 4/20), Mars Trine Pluto (4:37 AM)  

Our thoughts and communications are serious, grounded and mature. We express our ideas with responsibility and wisdom, seeking the advice of those more established than ourselves. During this coming month, we could feel daring and adventurous, seeking positive actions and dynamic new experiences. Very little should stand in our way today, as we move forward with intensity, focus and courage.  

 

Thursday 3/21: Venus Square Mars (1:07 AM), Venus Sextile Jupiter (7:16 AM)

Competitive endeavors with friends can be particularly envigorating. Obstacles stimulate impulsive actions. Harmony is destroyed by brooding, negative behavior, while courageous, honest actions and conversations help break down obstacles in relationships. We should however beware of excesses in pleasure, food and drinks as we may not be too clear on when to stop.    

 

Sunday 3/24: Mercury Conjunct Neptune (10:26 AM)

Great for artistic creativity and spiritual work inasmuch as we do not fall into the trap of spiritual imagination. Not so good however for anything requiring attention to details as we could miss some of the fine print.

 

Tuesday 3/26: Venus enters Pisces (12:43 PM till April 17)

During the next three weeks, we could feel more sensitive, compassionate, tolerant and empathic than usual. Beauty, peace, harmony and elegance are particularly attractive. We may feel less materialistic than usual and are able to tap more easily into the laws of abundance of the universe. A very blessed time for artists who could be particularly inspired. Wonderful also for mystical work.

 

Wednesday 3/27: Venus Sextile Uranus (9:44 AM):

A romance begun today respects our freedom and independence while providing much excitement. An existing relationship is renewed and redefined to help the soaring of each individual. Unusual forms of art, design or fashion are fascinating. Our social circle expands to include highly original new friends. Money is made in surprising ways.

 

Thursday 3/28: Mercury turns direct (6:59 AM)

We might still lose our keys, erase messages without having listened to them, miss a plane and misunderstand directions, but for the most part, communications return to normal.

 

Saturday 3/30: Mars enters Gemini (11:12 PM till May 15)

During the next month and a half, Gemini natives are favored. Others could feel a little scattered. We could have our irons in too many fires and be hyper-active. Great for outdoor activities and mental gymnastics!

 

Wishing you a productive month of March!

 

In Loving Light.

February astrological forecast

February 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Gebo “commitment”. In the notion of commitment is the concept of promise, pledge and engagement. It is only by committing fully to a path, a person, a project, values, that we can reap true results. When we are wishy-washy about things, when we waver too much, when we don’t honor our word and don’t keep our promises, we don’t accomplish much, seem superficial or worse, unstable, and become untrustworthy to others. If the path we committed to is not the best for us, just the act of giving ourselves fully to it will open another one, more adapted to our needs. If we stay at the surface of things, we shall keep starting over and over without ever accomplishing anything of value. On the other hand, if the path we chose proves not to have been the best, all the efforts we shall have put into the creation of what we thought we wanted, are never lost nor in vain.

 

 

No retrograde planet this month! This is extremely rare. For once, we are all caught up! No re-visiting any aspect of our lives nor tying loose ends! A time to move forward with no strings attached.

 

The year of the Earth Pig starts on Feb 5 until January 24, 2020. A year of benevolent efforts to reconcile differences and install peace in troubled parts of the world. On a personal level, a great year for reinventing ourselves, clearing our debts and creating new financial opportunities. Some people may disappear from our lives, while others, more in harmony with our frequency, join our close circle of trusted friends. Communication, as well as studying are enhanced. An excellent period of time to let go of habits that no longer serve us and also for enjoying life more. If we have been thinking of taking a sabbatical, this would be the perfect year to do so! Marriages and births multiply this year. A significant year for bringing more joy  into our life and indulging in more pleasure but without excess!

 

 

The Moon will be Void of Course (V/O –forming no major aspect with any planet before entering the following sign-):

This month’s intentional meditation started on Sunday January 20 at 9:16 PM, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Leo (Solar Eclipse). Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

 

On Monday 2/4, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 1:04 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

 

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Tuesday 2/19. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Virgo at exactly 7:54 AM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

 

 

Friday 2/1: Mars Square Pluto (7:15 PM)

Impulsive actions could be particularly destructive today, both mentally and physically. If we are not careful, stress, jealousies, undercurrents of anger or violence could undermine our efforts. Facing those situations with honesty, integrity and courage may be the only way to create positive changes. This will however require much determination and inner strength on our part as the opposition could be unexpectedly insidious.

 

Saturday 2/2: Venus Trine Uranus (3:40 PM)

Exciting social encounters mark this day. We could have a sudden, unusual attraction to a person who frees us to be ourselves. The connection might however be more fun than truly enduring. We could be inspired by new ways of making money. Our esthetic tastes are modern, even futuristic in some cases, definitely drawing us to the unusual.  

 

Sunday 2/3: Mercury Sextile Jupiter (1:55 PM), Venus enters Capricorn (2:30 PM till March 1)

Our honesty and integrity with ourselves and others, is particularly rewarded today. A great day to learn a new language or journey to another country. Our mind is open, tolerant, creative and positive. Our contacts with others are warm and generous. During the coming month, we take our love relationships seriously. We might even prefer to be alone rather than with the wrong person. A good time to either commit to another if the connection has been good, or separate if our path together has been rocky for a while. We are also wiser in our financial dealings.

 

Thursday 2/7: Sun Sextile Jupiter (4:33 PM), Mercury Sextile Mars (5:25 PM)

Opportunities to further our career and complete our projects abound. We feel positive, confident and in mastery of our talents. Our positive energy opens many new doors. We are direct in our speech, are not afraid to take initiatives and to forge ahead with courage and energy.

 

Saturday 2/9: Mercury Sextile Uranus (2:53 PM)

A day of unplanned changes and unexpected encounters. The more flexible we are, the easier and the more fun this day will be! As we flow present to present, from moment to moment, we are likely to find that what could have seemed like a frustrating disruption, ends up opening new exciting opportunities.   

 

Sunday 2/10: Mercury enters Pisces (2:51 AM till April 17)

During the next two months, our mind is very sensitive to vibrations, the invisible, impressions and signs. Artistic creation is particularly favored. Our appreciation of beauty is enhanced with a greater need for peace, harmony and balance. Our thoughts are inspired. Violence and dark images could be more traumatizing than usual. We seek oneness, compassion and love in all our interactions with others.

 

Tuesday 2/12: Mars Conjunct Uranus (10:19 PM)

Caution should be exercised while operating a motor vehicle or using sharp objects. Tempers could flare up suddenly and brutally. Best to stay away from any aggressive individual or potentially intense situation. Violent sports should also be avoided today, as accidents could very quickly shift our lives for the worse.

 

Thursday 2/14: Mars enters Taurus (2:51 AM till March 31st)

During the next month and a half, Taurus natives are favored. We ruminate the consequences before leaping into action.  Our projects are thought through in a slow, deliberate and practical manner. We feel more comfortable in nature. Our sensuality is also highlighted. A need to take good care of our body is enhanced. Getting some physical pampering could be a very good use of this transit.

 

Sunday 2/17: Venus Sextile Neptune (0:45 AM), Sun Sextile Uranus (11:54 PM)

A relationship could seem most enchanted and magical and may well stem from a deep soul connection. Artists and healers are particularly inspired today. We should also expect the unexpected and meet sudden changes of plans with excitement as they are likely to prove particularly freeing in the long run. Under this transit, the more we go with the flow, the more gifts we shall receive.

 

Monday 2/18: Venus Conjunct Saturn (2:52 AM), Sun enters Pisces (3:04 PM till March 20th), Mercury Conjunct Neptune (10:37 PM)

Today, a sense of seriousness and responsibility permeates our relationships, making us feel particularly lonely. A relationship begun under this transit will start slowly and carefully, making it very enduring. One that has been shaky for a while, could come to its logical conclusion, without any sense of pain or drama. With this planetary influence, we are not so good with details. Silence, solitude and inspiring topics are attractive. We are drawn to spirituality and beauty.  Not a good day to sign= legally binding documents. During the coming month, we could feel more detached from material concerns and more eager to grow spiritually. Day dreaming could interfere with the work in need of being done. Yet going with the flow helps us find inner peace.

 

Tuesday 2/19: Mercury Sextile Saturn (6:39 PM)

Our thoughts are serious, focused and disciplined. A great day to get through our administrative papers. We seek the company of wiser, sometimes older people. Wonderful for redefining our short and long term goals.

 

Friday 2/22: Mercury Square Jupiter (12:40 PM), Venus Conjunct Pluto (7:49 PM) 

We could overextend ourselves and have exaggerated expectations. Let us be careful of promises we cannot keep or that seem too good to be true. Starting a long distance trip under this transit is ill-advised. A relationship begun today could be particularly passionate, even bordering on the obsessive. Passion and a deep soul link provide a solid basis to an enduring connection that forces us to remove inner blocks to intimacy.

 

Saturday 2/23: Mercury Sextile Pluto (9:15 AM)

Powerful insights into people and situations mark this day. Challenges that had been plaguing us for a while are resolved in a creative manner. Best to lie low. In the face of opposition, communication, compromise and cooperation create benevolent outcomes.

 

Wednesday 2/27: Sun Sextile Mars (6:33 PM)

Challenges are invigorating. A great day for physical activities and to leap into action. The results created are most fulfilling. Our stamina is at an all times’ high. A wonderful day to commit to a dynamic new exercise program. Great also for starting a project requiring leadership abilities, positive energy and impulsive creativity.

 

Wishing you an amazing month of February!

 

In Loving Light.

 

January 2019 astrological forecast

January 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Inguz “Renewal”. What a wonderful and apt way of starting a new year! New year, new beginnings. The chance to start over with good resolutions and reinvent ourselves!

 

Two eclipses this month. Eclipses always mark major evolutionary steps beyond which life will never be the same. Their collective influence is determined by the sign they fall in. Their personal influence is based on where (in which house) they occur in our personal birth chart. Their effects can be felt for up to 19 years.

Saturday 1/5, Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (15º25’) at 5:28 PM. This degree is represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “School grounds filled with boys and girls in gymnasium suits”. Our body is the vehicle of our soul. This eclipse urges us to listen to its wisdom. Our physical self is a good measure of where we are at. Its pains and sufferings signal places of imbalance in need of rectification. Healing occurs when we see and feel ourselves in whole(holy)ness. This eclipse is also helping us follow our bliss that we may find our perfect job and there also, become the masters of our own destiny.

Sunday 1/20, Lunar Eclipse in Leo (0:52’) at 9:16 PM. This degree is symbolized by: “Blood rushes to a man’s head as his vital energies are mobilized under the spur of ambition”. Circumstance in our lives may shift, structures may change, an old order may come to an abrupt end. Those dissolving situations are forcing us redefine our priorities and create new dynamics in our lives. As we do, we can dream new dreams that revitalize us. This eclipse can help us either find a work that inspires us, or bring inspiration to our existing position. As healing comes to our heart, our physical self is also supported in returning to divine perfection. Relationships are warmer. We feel more generous. A deep interest in a foreign culture could encourage us to travel to a country that opens our heart further and enriches us spiritually.

 

Uranus turns direct on Sunday January 6 at 28º36’ Aries. Its shadow period remains until April 22nd. The image associated with this degree is: “The music of the Spheres”. In the past few months, we have been asked to free ourselves from conditionings, family and educational influences, so that we may individuate. As we stand in our own power, we are also able to connect to the magic of the universe and tap into higher realms of consciousness.

Tuesday 1/1: Sun conjunct Saturn (9:49 PM)

A day of serious thoughts and actions. We may be more cautious and measured in our speech and prefer aloneness to being with others. An excellent day to fulfill our duties and responsibilities. Older, more mature people are likely to acknowledge our practical efforts. We are concerned with long term ambitions and are willing to work hard to achieve them.

 

Thursday 1/3: Mercury Trine Uranus (9:12 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Plans may change suddenly. It is best to remain flexible and not make any binding decision. We may be surprised by people dropping out of our lives, while others we haven’t heard from in a long time, re-emerge, enabling us to reassess how much we have evolved in the past years. We are drawn to unusual characters walking to the sound of their own drummer as well as to futuristic ideas. A day to go with the flow and be present to the present.   

 

Friday 1/4: Sun Sextile Neptune (11:58 AM), Mercury enters Capricorn (7:40 PM) till Wednesday 1/23.

During the next 3 weeks, our mind is practical, organized and prone to seriousness of purpose. We are focused on our ambitions and disciplined in our work.

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 1/7: Venus enters Sagittarius (3:19 AM) till February 4

During the next month, we feel warmer, more generous and adventurous in love than usual. A love interest from another state or country could enter our life for both our spiritual and emotional enrichment. We may also fall in love with another culture.  

 

Tuesday 1/8: Mercury Square Mars (2:05 AM)

Not a good day to get in a fight or deal with potentially angry or violent people. Tempers could flare up and become quickly out of control. We should also be careful while driving. Red lights or stop signs could be disrespected very easily. Best to channel our energy into a project requiring enthusiasm and physical energy.

 

Friday 1/11: Sun Conjunct Pluto (3:36 AM)

Our leadership abilities and our charisma exert a strong influence on our environment. We may find that some people oppose a passive resistance to our power, but if we remain strong and fair, we can inspire many and get a lot accomplished today.

 

Monday 1/14: Mercury Sextile Neptune (5:14 AM)

Mental confusion, as well as miscommunications could occur today. Not so good for signing legally binding documents nor for dealing with anything requiring attention to details.

Friday 1/18: Venus Trine Mars (8:50 AM), Mercury Conjunct Pluto (12:01 PM), Sun Square Uranus (5:30 PM)

The masculine and the feminine are balanced today, leading to harmonious relationships and interesting social encounters. We are able to X-ray situations and people, calling a spade a spade. Important however to stay very present to the moment as unusual circumstances could occur that disrupt our plans and project us in a completely different reality, revealing things that were previously hidden.  

 

Sunday 1/20: Lunar Eclipse (9:16 PM) in Leo (0º52’)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 1/21: Mars Square Saturn (3:48 AM)

Stress, heavy unfair responsibilities or an injustice could feel particularly limiting today. We could be rejected for no valid reason. The world could feel like a cold, cruel place. Important to use self-discipline to curb the need to lash back impulsively.

 

Tuesday 1/22: Venus Conjunct Jupiter (4:26 AM)

A good day to throw or attend a party. An act of random kindness could brighten our day. We could get a promotion and feel more generous than usual with those we cherish. A love relationship begun today is spiritually and intellectually enriching. Wonderful for a  long distance journey that confronts us to a new culture.

 

Wednesday 1/23: Mercury Square Uranus (3:13 AM), Mercury enters Aquarius (9:50 PM) till February 11

Unexpected events, unbalanced people, could disrupt our plans today. Harsh words could be spoken impulsively, alienating us from others. During the next 3 weeks, our mind is open to the unusual. Ufology could be attractive, as are inventions connecting science and metaphysics.

 

Friday 1/25: Mars Trine Jupiter (9:53 AM)

A wonderful day to begin a new exercise program and indulge in outdoor activities requiring an adventurous spirit. A new project begun today is fueled with enthusiasm, faith and trust in its positive outcome. Great also for a long-distance journey requiring physical stamina.

 

Tuesday 1/29: Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:52 PM)

A good day for active, direct, positive communications. Let us make those phone calls, write those letters and in general, clear our desk of backlogged work. We speak our mind with clarity. Our interactions with others are pleasant and mutually beneficial.

 

Thursday 1/31: Saturn Sextile Neptune (6:21 AM)

The perfect day to give a practical form to our dreams. Our idealism is grounded in reality. A secure condition could dissolve, allowing us to reinvent it. A very good day for artists who are both esthetically inspired and have business acumen.

 

Wishing you the best of new years!

 

In Loving Light.

December astrological forecast

 

December 2018

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz, “the gateway”. Life is made of choices. Our destiny unfolds one choice at a time. We are required to discern what will lead us to our highest good from what may hinder our growth. This month, we are faced with important decisions. If we feel confused, it may be useful for each, to create a list of the pros and the cons and assign a number to each bullet point (1: not important, 10: most important) and see for each option whether we are in the plus or the minus, and by how much. This simple exercise will help us reach internal clarity. An important month that brings this year to a conclusion and prepares the next. Let us choose what benefits our highest growth!

Uranus remains retrograde this whole month. Its shadow period lasts until April 23rd 2019. The degrees covered this month (29º09’ - 28º37’ Aries) are symbolized by: “The music of the spheres” and “A duck pond and its brood”. On the road to individuation, if it is important to keep our eyes on the higher realms, to connect to the mysteries of the universe and find our place in the greater scheme of things, it is also essential to remember our family, biological and spiritual. The friends we choose, the like-spirited people, our soul sisters and brothers are the ones who support our evolution, assist us in times of need, and present us the mirror in which we can look at ourselves with honesty. No matter how lonely we may feel, we are never isolated from the rest of humanity. Each life is connected to all and has repercussions. Let us always remember our individual responsibility on the evolution of consciousness of the collective.

Mercury turns direct on December 7 at 27º17’ Scorpio. Its shadow period remains until December 25, 2018. This degree is represented by: “The King of the Fairies approaching his domain”. The first week of December is still marked by a need to investigate esoteric mysteries, the mystical and the secrets of our own spiritual lineage and identity. We could be enticed to revisit such topics as life after death, reincarnation and the profound wisdom of ancient advanced civilizations.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Thursday 11/22 when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Gemini. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

On Thursday 12/6 on the New Moon in Sagittarius, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 11:20 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

Saturday 12/1: Mercury re-enters Scorpio (3:12 AM till December 12)

During the next 11 days, our mind is inquisitive. We seek deep answers to profound questions. We are drawn to the metaphysical, are fascinated by secrets and may wish to investigate the mysteries of life after death and sexuality. Because superficial conversations are not interesting to us, solitude could feel more attractive. Our abilities to concentrate, as well as X-ray situations and people are particularly enhanced.

Sunday 12/2: Venus enters Scorpio (9:02 AM till January 7), Sun Square Mars (4:35 PM)

During the next month, our emotions run deep. We seek loyalty, trustworthiness and integrity in our relationships. Our feelings being very black and white, we tend to avoid lukewarm or wishy-washy people. We need to experience and express passion. Our aesthetic tastes are also more intense than usual. Today, more specifically, could bring some conflicts. Tempers flare up quickly. Direct words are spoken without much prior thought, creating irreparable separations. Potentially aggressive people or situation should be avoided, as they could easily degenerate into violence. Extra caution is advised while driving a motor vehicle or using any sharp object.

 Wednesday 12/5: Sun Square Neptune (2:22 PM)

We could feel quite dreamy today, inefficient and vaguely anxious. We could also be quite influenceable. Best to stay away from negative people as their words could make us more depressed than necessary. A day best used focusing on the positive, listening to uplifting music, watching a feel-good movie or reading an inspiring book.

 Thursday 12/6: Mercury turns direct (1:22 PM)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today communications could still be a little chaotic. Everything returns to normal tomorrow.

Friday 12/7: Mars Conjunct Neptune (6:12 AM)

Physically, we could feel rather weak today, dreamy and unprone to making any effort in the “real” world. A day best spent resting, relaxing, taking it easy and going with the flow. Good for creative craft work, meditation and aquatic exercise.

Wednesday 12/12: Mercury enters Sagittarius (3:43 PM till January 5)

The next 3 weeks are perfect for long distance traveling, learning a new language, taking an interest in a different culture, furthering our education especially in the areas of the law, religion and/or philosophy. We feel more positive than usual, exert more self-confidence, and in general have more faith and trust in life, in ourselves as well as in others.

Sunday 12/16: Venus Sextile Saturn (6:27 AM), Mars Sextile Pluto (10:53 PM)

A good day to be very clear on a romantic involvement. We are able to look at a relationship with realism, a certain degree of detachment and a deeper understanding of its implications in our life. The perfect time to either end it or lift it to the next level of commitment. Focused artistic work leads to solid results. A good day for intense physical efforts as well as for starting a project requiring passion, power, stamina and courage.

Thursday 12/20: Sun Trine Uranus (8:21 AM)

A day of sudden and unexpected changes. It is important today to go with the flow, be present from moment to moment, and face challenges with creative inventiveness.  Reconnecting with someone from our past could help us appreciate all the changes we have gone through. A stimulating day that could bring us much freedom from the known while encouraging us to manifest our uniqueness.

Friday 12/21: Venus Trine Neptune (9:12 AM), Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (9:37 AM), Sun enters Capricorn (2:23 PM till January 20)

During this coming month we could be much more organized, efficient and hard-working than usual. An excellent time to make short and long-term plans, reassess our goals, as well as be clear on our values and priorities. 

Today, more specifically, a relationship could feel enchanted. But if it seems too good to be true, beware, as it may just be so and once the pink bubble has burst, end in a big disappointment. On the positive side, if we are careful not to let our imagination take over, there could be a soul link and a telepathic connection with another. Our esthetic sense is particularly refined. We want to focus on beauty around us and in each person we meet. This transit is particularly inspiring for artists who are able through their art to pierce the veils between dimensions.

Today, we also feel very generous, enthusiastic and confident. Let us however be careful to not promise more than we can deliver, as our words could exceed our capacity to fulfill them. Let us beware not to fall prey to those who would take advantage of our wishful mental state. Excellent for a long-distance trip which will expose us to distant cultures and expand our understanding of this world. Very good also for learning a new language, furthering our education or taking an interest in philosophy, religion or the law. Our mind is expansive, positive and adventurous.

Monday 12/24: Mercury Square Neptune (4:33 PM)

Confusion could mark this day. Our mind is not good with details and may even be quite impractical. We could feel dreamy and unfocused, more attracted to a world of our imagination than dealing with reality. Not a good day for signing legally binding documents or anything requiring concentration and discipline. We could be more tired and sensitive to noise, negativity, ugliness and darkness, than usual. 

Friday 12/28: Venus Sextile Pluto (1:27 PM)

A new or existing love relationship could make us experience more passion than we have ever known. Compromise, graciousness and compliance for the sake of peace and harmony, ease our social life. Artists could work with more intensity and creativity than usual.

Monday 12/31: Mars enters Aries (6:20 PM till February 14)

Aries natives are favored during the next 6 weeks. All others should also enjoy higher energy, feel more confident and optimistic. A great period to launch a project requiring enthusiasm, courage, positive energy, determination and physical stamina.  

 

Wishing you the happiest of holidays!

 

In Loving Light.

November astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank rune! We are entering the unknown, the unforeseeable… But also, at work in our lives, is the sum result (karma) of all our thoughts and actions. Everything is possible this month. We are reminded that we are the ultimate creators of our reality and that whatever we are reaping based on our past choices, that we do not enjoy, can be changed with a transformation of attitude.

September astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ansuz “Signals, the messenger”. A reminder to be impeccable in our thoughts and words as they create our reality and impact others as well as the world around us. We are also required to pay attention to both the obvious and the subtle messages we receive on a constant basis that validate or invalidate the choices we are making.

March 2018 astrological forecast

Wyrd “the homeland”. We are requested this month to examine our  karmic lineage, as well as understand how we are continuing and/or breaking our family tree. The questions we need to ask ourselves revolve around what we have done with our gifts so far, how we have lived our life, what we have created that may continue beyond us and what our real roots are, both in this lifetime and throughout our various incarnations.

December's astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Raido. “Journey, communication, union, reunion”. A perfect relationship is built on love, respect, understanding and tolerance. Communication is essential to growth. An enemy is a friend we have not listened to or taken the time to know. Even in the greatest of relationships, occasional separations are necessary to adjust our frequencies, regroup, recover our power and know ourselves independently from the other.
