A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world and you're here with me, eternally
Xanadu ~ Electric Light Orchestra/Olivia Newton-John
There is an energy building slowly jettisoning you, hurling you, towards something. Like an asteroid in the sky without knowing where or if there is an end to the journey you free fall through the abyss with only the journey itself as comfort. Gone is the bed of habits and conveniences that once created solace and now it is the unknown that is the home itself. This is the way. The only way now from here.
A Dhanishta full moon in Capricorn (true astronomical position) has the symbol of a drum. A drum like the heart creates momentum and circulates a rhythm to create the momentum of life. There is a momentum this full moon with a beat you can move to and towards to create more prosperity in yours (and others) lives. Friday 11:35am AEST the moon fully illuminates us into this beat and joins Saturn in the sky. The conjunction will have us thinking long-term and seriously about concepts questioning 'what is the endpoint' 'where is this going' 'who do I really want to be' 'is this the truth'. This perhaps somber and sober retrospective is vital for you to find this abundance or prosperity in your life to follow.
With the anger of the past month dissipating (read my previous post about mars and rahu) there is a depression on the mind to isolate and find the inner rhythms you may have forgotten or lost touch with. Turning within at this time, listening to yourself deeply and 'tuning in' is the only guide you will need to find solace on the adventure ahead. Dhanishta can bring fame but in a world too often saturated in illusion, vanity and attention seeking dare to come home to truth, nurture your authenticity and bathe in humility for these attributes will inspire the world to dance towards the greatest destination of all - the soul.

When you're searching your soul
When you're searching for pleasure
How often, pain is all you find
But when you're coasting along and nobody's trying too hard
You can turn around and like where you are ~ The Sundays (When I'm thinking about you)
The Pushya new moon in vedic Cancer (Karka) is a moment on our path to slow down and tune in to (and care for) the spiritual heart. The need to fill up and nourish the heart is most prevalent at this time. A new moon is said to cause us to feel strongly inwardly, yet not easily share this depth outwardly. It is also said to open the doorway to the occult - so be open to visions, dreams, signs and strong intuitions to guide you.
By the time the moon kisses the sun in the sky tomorrow Jupiter reverses in the sky also joining Saturn, Neptune and Pluto in retrograde. This seems significant as it happens around the new moon. Jupiter grows stronger as he slows down and expands closer to the earth. Filling us with divine wisdom and dharma (purpose) - yet as it's a new moon if you're not filling your mind with pure and good information it can also expand your negative thoughts and feelings too - so it's vital you're very conscious of what you're pouring into your mind (and heart) over the next day or two. Loving and true (I say 'true' as in they feel real and clear) affirmations are a good start. Mantra and meditation are a wonderful tool to raise your vibration as well. (I have a kirtan tomorrow night in Coogee if this calls to you - booking link in bio)
Lastly there is a lot of heat and friction in the sky at the moment. Mars is charging closer and closer to Rahu (north node) in Aries creating anger, confrontations and harsh projections onto the world/others. Reactions are your biggest concern and the drama of combative illusion. Yet there is always learnings to be had - all this is amplified in you to show you where your inadequacies lie. Where do you feel weak or uncourageous in your life? Where do you need to apply boundaries and what actions do you need to take to healthily respect and back yourself? Watch out for harsh speech and flying off the handle (if you like holding on to handles).

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire

We are in the eye of the storm of transformation folks! Destruction falls around us with choices on where to go next on the cloudy horizon. This Ardra new moon calls for a fresh start. It calls for progress and with this progress takes effort on your behalf. But as always when one is in a storm it is intense, scary and yet also electrically exciting. An interesting symbol for this new moon is a tear drop. We humans usually cry in intense situations to express and release built up tension. But we also cry in times of joy and relief from hard situations. Either way expression and release is here.
Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn have all arrived into signs they are dignified in. With dignity comes a feeling of belonging and strength. Taurus, Libra, Aries, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Pisces, Capricorn and Aquarius are all feeling self assured and ignited at this time. This tells me there is much support from this new moon and most certainly we can support each other. Here in Sydney we see protests and road closures and much rain (AGAIN) on the way. This may not be an 'easy' transition but it will feel right to make change and act on it.
New moon blessings to you all!

Tuesday 9:51pm AEST. The light of the full moon knots the spirit and you shall not untangle this knot (or gandanta) in a way you would expect or perhaps even like. There is a peril (or maybe even plural perils) present in your life that needs to be fronted up to. To be overcome. This will need to be conquered but it all starts within the mind. The habits formed and accepted/indulged or even denied need to be overhauled and changed to reflect who you are now and where you want to go. This is a great time for a cosmic slap of sorts and to get clear, even more so to GET REAL, on your goals.
Saturn in retrograde presents us all with a slowing down. A restructuring. There will be delays and revisions. But unlike when Mercury reverses in the sky this happens on a much deeper and less obvious level. This will only become depressing if you aren't paying attention and go against your inner compass. Who are you? Do you like who you are and who you've become? The past 2 years have reshaped our world and knocked many of us sideways. We had to renavigate and adapt but with this adaption came a forgetfulness. A forgetfulness of what we uniquely stand for. We did what we needed to do to get by, but the time has come to reshuffle to a higher ground.
My Scorpio and Taurus (rising, moon and sun) friends will greatly feel this knot this full moon. It will be twisting and turning inside of you and you know that things need to change. And finally you know what needs to be done and after the lunar rays shine to full over the coming 24 hours or so you will be able to discard what needs to be and work towards the new by the new moon in a fortnight. These two signs (within us all regardless of your chart) reflect our worth and sustenance. What we hold and what let fall. The knot can only untangle with the death of one thing to breathe life into another.

Don't wanna rush it
Let the rhythm pull you in
It's here so touch it
You know what I'm sayin'
And I haven't said a thing
Keep the record playin'
Slow down and dance with me, yeah, slow
Skip a beat and move with my body, yeah, slow ~ Kylie Minogue
The next fortnight symbolises a slowing down from the previous few lunar cycles. Saturn the planet of time and karma in the sky is decreasing in speed and coming to a halt before retrograding Sunday morning. This is not a time to rush or hurry (even though Mars and Jupiter in conjunction will encourage you to do so) but a new lunar beginning of being what we have learned from the previous ones (read my previous full moon post to get a gist). Humility, patience, integrity, responsibility and cutting through the BS are required forging ahead this new moon. Mercury moving direct on Friday in Krittika reiterates that we will be able to see clearly and communicate this clarity through this upcoming month. Put your money where your mouth is, walk the talk, patience is a virtue (anyone else know any more of these colloquial sayings?)...
Yet the Moon and Sun being in Rohini brings a vast amount of sweetness into our lives at this time. Even though we are slowing down and getting real it also parallels slowing down to smell the roses and enjoy the moment/what we have in our lives. This is one of those times when we realise we have been so busy and distracted that we have missed all that we have become and all the wonder that surrounds us. Being projected onto a goal or a future incessantly quite often takes us further away from the happiness we are seeking; for happiness can only happen in the present moment. This is that moment and as Kylie says above 'slow down and dance with me'.
Many of you lovely humans have reached out to me recently asking how the eclipses (and big shifts of April) have impacted but without wishy-washing a glorious system that is vedic astrology it is better to look at your unique chart to uncover the personal shifts. With that in mind I'm offering a 10% discount for June if you use code 'eclipse' at booking to help you find your answers.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landside,
No escape from reality
Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to
Me ~ Queen
Our trickster friend Mercury turns retrograde-o today and perhaps some are feeling it...though let me let you in on a little secret: unless Mercury is dominant in your chart (such as ruling your Ascendant, Moon or to a lesser degree your Sun) it doesn't have to be some dramatically calamitous unwiring as the pseudo spiritual communities lead you to believe. In fact it can create a lovely refresh of the intellect allowing thoughts to change and rewire the mind into unconventional greatness. Take it from me. I was born with this phenomenon and you're still reading this blog...so hey it ain't so bad, kid!
Ok so Mercury is the least of our problems earthling. As we ascend toward the full moon and the lunar eclipse at the end of this weekend we are jettisoning into the culmination of karma initiated almost 2 weeks ago with the new moon. The endings, reshuffles, surprises and unpredictability is hurtling us all towards the full moon in Vishaka. Moving from the Aries - Libra axis of me vs we, we transition into Taurus - Scorpio axis of mine vs yours. It takes true self worth this full moon to differentiate what is truly for you and what is only temporal gratification. A great exercise these coming days building up to the full moon is write down/get clear of what you desire (Taurus) and notice where you act against this, giving away your power to the wrong avenues (Scorpio).
This is the time in your life to walk the talk. Quit saying you want something yet acting opposite or even worse diagonally sidewards into confusion town. This is that moment in history if you use your full integrity of combined intention, word and action you can harvest the fruit that is rightfully yours. The only trick is you need to get SUPER clear on what is actually authentically your truth vs what others have pushed you into either by their own intentions, words or physical actions. If you feel like sharing your intention please leave it in the comments - if it's something that needs to be kept sacred until it eventuates honour that - but please dear ones let's polish those dreams so the stars can shine brighter on us this full moon. The glory is ours if we can hold our ground and hold our heads high.

Great Bonnie! We have another eclipse turning, twisting and well fückin' us up. I've noticed many here in Sydney only existing in their heads (and then even further afield). With the karmic axis strongly showing us where we need to detach in relationships particularly our past patterns of toxic dependence and inner child wounding up for all to see...we have an opportunity this weekend to end this shït for good! Excuse the vulgarity - but all this energy is well...vulgar.
We have so many blessings at the moment in the sky lover Venus, wise Jupiter and ethereal Neptune in a beautiful conjunction in cosmic hearted Pisces drawing us into what is all magical and wonderful about this universe...the Sun exalted in passionate Aries and Saturn in strength in humanitarian Aquarius are also a point of strength to build your healthy sense of self and connection with community. The new moon moon in Bharani has the Shakti to LET GO (now as someone who is tired of repetitive yoga class rhetoric I'm not just wishy washying this at you I MEAN IT - LET THAT SHÏT GO PLEASE). Apologies for the caps.
Let's get real: What is your biggest fear? The fear that would feel like it would kill you? This is it my friend. Yes this can be in physical life such as a person, job, home but I have the feeling we are all dealing with deeper inner wounds now together. We are getting closer to the source. And these childhood wounds are only creating this external example of what isn't LOVE. For you to move forward into all the gifts of May and begin fresh this is your eclipse to really DO THE WORK (another phrase I hate over hearing). But yeah. Do it. For YOU.

Ben, you're always running here and there,
You feel you're not wanted anywhere.
If you ever look behind and don't like what you find
There's something you should know, you've got a place to go.
I used to say I and me, now it's us, now it's we. ~ Michael Jackson
Welcome to April! Wow what a change in the sky (and hopefully in your own lives - please leave a comment to share how you're finding it). The karmic axis has changed signs two days ago, Jupiter to its home in Pisces last night...much is different astrologically. For Easter we will have the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra. The Sun will be burning strong in Aries at its exaltation (as of this afternoon) and will enter the same sign as the karmic node Rahu. There is amplified vitality abundant at the moment. Fresh new energy, confidence, adventure and perhaps a side of arrogance (keep this in check please for the sake of us all). Especially with the upcoming full moon in Libra we need to channel this newfound sense of self into co operating with others otherwise there will be a feeling of separation because of Ketu being in the same sign as the moon. The balance between I and we is very much at the forefront right now. It's a dance and the steps need to be learned, relearned and practiced by us all. The gift of this full moon is to liberate ourselves from the past through the mirroring of others.
The upcoming new moon in Aries in a fortnight is our first solar eclipse this year (to be expanded upon on the next post in 2 weeks) so Libra is highlighted now to lead us onto an empowered new path on the upcoming horizon- our relationships from the past are resurfacing to be healed, patterns learned or these people detached from - look into your relationships (any close, intimate connection) and feel into what is negative attachment in your relating life. What do you need to work on? Stronger boundaries? Expressing how you feel? Softening? Releasing expectations? Or having some?
I see this Chitra full moon Saturday night as a moon to get what we truly deserve if we act righteously. If we act from our true north/moral compass and step forward with integrity we can be rewarded. Yet if we only act (and react) from the illusion of ego/self aggrandisement we will miss the merits waiting for us. There is much wonder ahead dear readers but as we take these new steps with all the changes happening it would be foolish to act too soon from a place of pomposity or conceit. Be strong but be a stronger lover. Happy Full Moon.

When the moon and the sun join together for April 1st (here in the southern hemisphere) we are all but fools in the game of life. A pinch and a punch (and let's add some knocks and kicks) we have all had and many of us have grown tired and weary...fatigued and submitted to the powers at be pulling the strings above us and it is at this point it would be most foolish to hand over our sovereignty. For April is where the game changes.
I'm going to bullet point these shifts as who doesn't like clear and concise?!
1. Our new moon tonight is in Revati joining the sun in the final lunar mansion of the sky. This is truly the end of a long 12 months and most beautifully Revati shakti is shining growth and prosperity onto a new life ahead. Being the end of zodiac belt it is granting us safe and prosperous transport from and end to a beginning.
2. On April 13 the karmic axis is changing signs and this has been a long 18 months from October 2020 of trying to find security (Taurus) through all the turmoil and unpredictability (Scorpio). Shifting to Aries is another confirmation of new beginnings and new willpower for us all and balancing this with our relationships with others in Libra. This axis will bring a lot of initiatives in not just our personal lives but also on the world stage.
3. On the eve that the karmic axis shifts Jupiter changes signs from Aquarius to Pisces heralding in a rise in consciousness. Our faith, hope and spirits lift and depending where it is in your chart (a great time for a reading with me to clarify) is where you will expand and prosper over the next 12 months.
4. Saturn on the 29th of April is also leaving a very long stint in Capricorn for a couple of months and heading into Aquarius (before retrograding back in July for the rest of the year). This short shift will hopefully connect us more to community, humanity and show us where our freedom/collective duty has been severed and how it needs to be taken back.
5. Finally Kal Sarpa is the phenomena in the sky when the planets are trapped inside of the karmic axis (this has been ongoing for many months). When all planets are in this karmic bowl we (all humans) are at the mercy of something greater (I mean we always are but it is CLEARLY evident at this time and there is less Will at hand). The end of April see's this end and as Mercury leads the way out. Mercury is our rational, reasonable and sensible intelligence. And we will need this moving forward in our own lives and together as a whole.

The full moon is in an unifying polarity tomorrow afternoon. The sun in Uttara Bhadrapada bringing rain (rain being symbolic of fertility and growth - not necessarily precipitation although we have had an excess of that of late) and opposite the moon in Uttara Phalguni granting the shakti of prosperity through union. Together we find fertility of union around us. This doesn't have to be romantic (although it most certainly can)...more so it means CONNECTION is the theme of this lunar phase. How we can connect and unite with those around us and what can be gained from these unions.
With Mars and Venus in Capricorn (planets of pursuit and attraction) together this is quite a powerful yet friction-full combination. Ie don't be surprised with the ol' hit and miss adventures ahead - patience is your virtue right now. Try to think of what is worthwhile quality wise and not just become opportunistic. Jupiter and Mercury together in Aquarius keep us buoyant and thinking outside of the box so really this full moon has a lot going for it. There is much to be gained and potential for these connections we make to grow fortuitously. Those with sidereal Virgo and Pisces will feel the splendor of this as it points to big changes arising in mid April that will create a big shift for us all...but for now a taste of what is to come. Those with Capricorn are probably still feeling the immense pressure and roadblocks in the way of their success but slowly and surely this will shift. Set an intention to connect with those that can support your desires this full moon and you will be on track to greatness.
