“The Great American Eclipse” – 2017

FileLeo2.jpg-WikimediaCommons

On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will occur. The eclipse will cover the United States from coast to coast. This eclipse has been nicknamed the “Great American Eclipse” by astronomers and astrologers alike.

All eclipses have an effect on everyone on the Earth, but it is said that the place on Earth where its totality occurs is said to experience the eclipse’s indications more strongly.

This eclipse will occur in the sign of Leo, a fixed, fire sign that is regal, protective, proud and brave. The sign of Leo has often been associated with leaders and kings. Our kings and leaders can be strong, brave leaders or they can be arrogant, egotistical tyrants.

This eclipse is in a favorable aspect, trine, to Uranus in Aries. This introduces themes of freedom, separation and independence into this eclipse. This can bring us increased intuition and bring ideas we hadn’t previously considered.

The planet Saturn, currently in the sign of Sagittarius is also trine to the eclipse. This brings a more grounding energy and helps us to restructure our ideas about our leaders and how we lead in our own lives (particularly wherever you find the sign of Leo in your chart).

If you’d like to read more about this eclipse, please see this article.

This podcast episode is also great to learn more about both August 2017 eclipses.

Super Full Moon in Taurus

Hello friends. Today I created this tarot spread for the forthcoming Super Full Moon in the sensual, cozy, grounded, earthy sign of Taurus. With all the choas and division that seems to be rampant on social media and in the news, I think that a good dose of comfort and earth vibes could good us all good!

Taurus is connected to the senses, to mother earth, to what tastes good and feels good. Remember to stop and smell the roses, as they say. Taurus has got your back if you need some earth therapy.

This spread is designed to help us identify what’s being lit up by this bold super full moon. (The moon won’t be this close to the earth again until 2034!) This spread will help us see where we can use Taurus’ persistent energy to make strides in our plans/goals in the next few weeks and also to help us identify what is being highlighted on our emotional spectrum.

Let this spread give you insight to your emotional, physical and spiritual selves.

E-mail me, silversiren317@gmail.com to book your reading.

Much love,

Alyssa

This Week’s Chaos: Mercury retrograde and Solar Eclipse in Virgo

21-2-mercury-retrograde-virgo-glyph-215x300virgo-solar-eclipse

Well wow, this week packs an energetic punch for us. Mercury is turning retrograde today between 14 and 28 degrees of Virgo. Mercury rules Virgo, so it expresses itself strongly in this sign. I would say that over the next three weeks it’s important to watch where you’re critical of others, but also where you might be overly critical of yourself. Virgo is known for criticism, perfection, details…so pay attention to where you want to nit pick others and yourself. You’re being asked to hold off on those judgments for now and try to see things from a new perspective.

During the next three weeks remember to exercise extra consideration for others. We’re more prone to double standards now, or at least seeing where we’ve held double standards, so practice patience and awareness.

In general is important to understand that Mercury retrograde in any sign causes delays, technology can go a bit wacky, communication becomes confusing and travel can be frustrating so awareness and patience.

Your experience with this Mercury retrograde and Solar Eclipse period will be heightened if you are a Virgo Sun, Moon or Ascendant.

Now, on to the even bigger energetic impact happening this week ~ the Solar Eclipse in Virgo. Solar Eclipses are new beginnings, a catalyst in our lives. The eclipses are powerful points which begin a new chapter for our lives. It is extremely important to know which houses the Eclipse is activating for you, as these areas of life are being transformed and being reset.

The main aspect happening with this particular eclipse is the T-Square. T-squares are aspects which bring tension. A T-square occurs now because the Sun in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces and Saturn and Mars are squaring both the Sun and Neptune. Mars is a planet who wants to proceed ahead and Saturn is a planet of restriction and responsibility. These planets being together creates an energy which may be bringing up unsettling fears, brewing frustrations, delayed actions.

Neptune has also been squaring Saturn all year long and it’s final square will occur soon. Neptune is a planet without boundaries and Saturn is the planet of boundaries, so you can see how this energy is confusing and frustrating.

Jupiter and Mercury are traveling together in Virgo, it’s a clean and pure sign and Jupiter is wisdom and learning. When these two travel together we can choose how we see whatever situations the universe is bringing us in this energetic month. These two planets can bring hope and optimism to the more frustrating energies going on.

Venus is in her sign of Libra, which reminds us there is beauty and peace to be experienced, if we choose to see it.

Mercury retrograde occurring during this eclipse is notable because you may not be able to execute your plans quite yet. We’re all being required to be more flexible during this time.

To recap, it’s our choice. We can get sucked into the Neptune, Mars, Saturn energy or we can choose to learn and choose to see the good by allowing our wisdom and loving side guide us.

For specific details on where the Virgo Solar Eclipse and Mercury retrograde are in your personal chart, please e-mail me at silversiren317@gmail.com for a consultation. My readings are discounted by 20% this week for the Mercury retrograde and Solar Eclipse.

Namaste.

Eclipse Season, September 2016

580366-solar-eclipse

For the next six weeks or so we’re entering into the second Eclipse Season of 2016!

There are two types of eclipses: Solar and Lunar. Eclipses occur in pairs. The Solar Moon occurs on the New Moon and two weeks later the Lunar Eclipse occurrs on the Full Moon.

A Solar Eclipse occurs when the moon is orbiting between the Sun and the Earth. Therefore the moon blocks the sun’s light from reaching the Earth and the moon casts a shadow onto the Earth. Solar eclipses are New Moon’s energy maximized. You’ll want to find in your chart the zodiac sign of the Solar eclipse to discern which field of your life will be getting a new start. This dark energy can feel intense and you’re called to trust the dark & the universe. The old chapter is ending and you’re starting a new chapter. Again, refer to the house the Solar eclipse is in to get a more specific idea of the themes which will color your experience. There may be actual events related to these themes, particularly if the eclipse is occurring near your planets in your birth chart.

The Lunar Eclipses happen when the Earth moves between the moon & the Sun, which blocks the light of the Sun which the moon usually reflects to us. During this time we can’t see the moon in her full brightness, she will appear red/pink. Lunar eclipses are less intense (in my opinion). These eclipses are more psychological and felt more on an internal level. Lunar Eclipses can be a good time to release, a good time to observe your emotions, express gratitude for what you have and be ready to release old belief systems or patterns which just don’t cut it anymore.Again, refer to the house of your birth chart the Lunar eclipse is in to find out which area of your life this energy is showing up in.

If you would like more insight to how the eclipses will affect you, please consider scheduling a tarot or astrology consultation with me. You can e-mail me at silversiren317@gmail.com.

My best advice is to stay centered and engage in self care over the next six weeks. Be present. Be an observer of the energy. Eclipse season can cause a lot of us to be more reactive, so take time outs if you need to, treat yourself to a massage or yoga session, etc.

Namaste.
