You can have control or love but you can’t have both….

It’s a funny thing letting go of control. Control is such a strong comfort for so many. Often times due to the traumas & circumstances of our youth beyond our control in most cases . So we grow into adults who inadvertently hurt those closest to us, and find ourselves compelled to have control at all times. So that we may never have to go right back to feeling like that powerless child again. The thing about it is that often times the comfort of always being a creature of habit or in control at all times prevents …damn near blocks the ability to let true love and happiness into our soul.

Granted I get it it’s scary, frustrating even strange….yet at the same time that’s what love is suppose to be. It’s a life altering mind expanding emotion that has no room for cowardly hesitations. Ultimately we will have to choose whether we like it or not… You can have the control/ comfort that is derived from arrogance/ego/fear or you can let love overcome, immerse & transform you into that version of elusive happiness that you always wanted yet could never quite grasp.

The reason you could never grasp it is because you can’t have both.

Eventually you must choose control or the person…there is no other way. Also, to play games and to waste time will require you to loose that person and you will unfortunately have no one to blame for your own self made misery other than yourself

These thoughts have crept in and evolved for me individually with the lunar eclipse and full moon energy earlier in the week. It’s what this energy of the eclipses is all about. If you accept the harsh and tumultuous energy of the eclipse….you will come out for the better in the end…If you resist the energy out of fear…fear of lack of control…out of it being something different, you only do your soul more harm than good and will suffer more in the long run. So relax & go with the flow. Never let love pass you by due to fear or arrogance

Love and Namaste,

The Metaphysical Momma

Full Moon in Scorpio May 18th 2019

Ego is a hell of a concept. So many people use ego as their greatest and most misguided shield for their insecurities and wounds. The practice of belittling and dehumanizing others (even sometimes those we love the most) in order for one to feel “in control”, safe, and superior towards others. Its such a funny concept and truly a world with in their own mind that they live it. For why they are busy playing the all mighty power trippers in their own mind…. the way the rest of the world perceives them is nothing short of callous, cruel, and downright sad. If you have to put others down to make yourself feel better about you… how can there be any room for love in your heart? When you have surely chosen ego to rule over your heart instead. We have to make room for love in our hearts.

Thats what’s going on this full moon in scorpio, a real battle royal will you between ego & allowing yourself to be transformed. Transformed into what metaphysical momma? Well friends…. I would say that’s up to you. What are you feeling bubbling inside of you this week? What can you absolutely not shake out of your mind and soul…. What is preventing you from obtaining what makes you happy in your core? This week is important to let go of what is preventing you from meeting your destiny/ your happy in life.

The Scorpio full moon will be opposite Mercury. So overly rational thinking, self centerness, ego, victimization will all be looming and make the time ripe for arguments. Those arguments will be painful with the moon in the constellation Lupus the wolf. Or the victim, the symbolism of sacrifice and offering. The moon sextile Pluto will bring some serious deep seeded issues and painful reminders of childhood trauma and pain, it will be very deeply felt energy & if given the chance will transform you from your very soul.

Jupiter Retrograding

Jupiter & Juno on mount Ida

Jupiter went retrograde today and will be so until August 2019. The entire summer to be exact. There is always some sort of planet retrograding at some particular time of the year. Jupiter retrogrades every 13 months for about 4 months. This year Jupiter seems to be revolved around issues surrounding love and relationships.

It is a time of philosophical introverted analysis of what you need to work on to be able to grow in relationships, or the time needed to realize its in your highest good to walk away. This will for sure be the time you realize this relationship is it, it’s worth it & for the good or the bad you will purge ahead, come the end of the summer. Or you may realize you need to let the relationship go to properly evolve more yourself.

The astroid Juno will be conjunct the moon during this period. Juno rules the soulmate, true love and commitment aspect. So this summer will be a true test to either make or break a strong relationship with your soulmate or one true love.

“Juno symbolizes the yearning for full mystic union that is emotionally, sexually, and psychologically fulfilling….”

So I hope you all have a wonderful and eyeopening Jupiter retrograde and please leave me comments on any astrology questions or your own personal experience about this aspect. I would love to hear from you!!

Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn.

Happy 2019! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. We not only have our new moon in Capricorn tomorrow, but it’s an uber powerful one because it’s also a partial solar eclipse occuring. A Solar eclipse much like a new moon is where the moon passes between the earth & sun. The new moon typically represents the fresh start of intentions for the month. With the partial solar eclipse involved it will be more along the lines of setting your intentions for the next six months.

This is a strong aspect of astrological energy, especially with Sun Conjunct the moon. All things are possible. This is a time to really ponder on what it is that you want to achieve in the coming year. Focus on what old habits are holding you back and thus need to be shed. Clean and organize your living space to go into this eclipse with a clear and light mind.

Make sure to write your intentions and what you wish to accomplish and grow from with in the new year. The absolute perfect time to set those New Years resolutions!

Venus Direct & Mercury goes Retrograde.

Well it was a doozy of a day for me. I woke up pretty optimistic actually, got my yoga in & actually all together & out the door at a decent time. However I could not shake this nagging feeling that there was indeed a holiday performance at my daughters school… The kind where you dress your children up in their holiday fineware & you yourself get all gussied up to go watch them belt out the adorable holiday songs they have been practicing for months. I checked the school calendar- nothing. I checked my email for reminder emails-again nothing. I asked my daughter if she could remember if there was a program today at school- of course she said “no way!” So poor naive mom sent her girl off in a freakin paw patrol dress to school. Thank God my intuition just wouldn’t stop nagging and I asked the teachers at drop off about the situation & sure enough if the program wasn’t happening in less than an hour. So there I sat in the chapel with everyone dressed up to the nines & me in yoga pants… Yes yoga pants & a hoodie. Nice try MaryJean… but honestly your pearls have nothing on my finest athleisurewear….. That in a nut shell is Mercury going retrograde. The unexpected & uncomfortable around every corner, but then again as much as me and my children looked like a couple of misfits up in that chapel. I will never forget my baby girl scanning the audience for us & then when she found us, that huge smile of pride from seeing her momma and sissy there waving like some crazy lunatics…. That part was totally Venus going direct.

Venus went direct this morning in Libra but opposing Uranus. So sudden and earth shaking events pertaining to your love life occurring will be more likey. This doesn’t have to always be related to your romantic love life though. Love is in many forms, like me feeling the love from my baby girls pride in her holiday performance. Or you might suddenly find out your pregnant or that a beloved friend is moving back into the state for example. Venus going direct opposing Uranus can indicate sudden and jolting events in any matter relating to love and relationships in your heart.

Then of course the dreaded Mercury retrograde… Which is truly nothing to fear at all. If you get used to avoiding signing contracts and making huge decisions/ buying electronics during this period, you will grow to see that this period is really more of a Netflix & chill / reflective period of time in your life. Especially leading up to the holidays, take time to slow down think about all you have evolved and overcome in this emotional rollercoaster of a year. Truly enjoy the season and time with your loved ones. For we will be officially out of Mercury retrograde & the shadow period right in time for Christmas. Namaste!

Venus Retrograde + New Moon 10/8/18

img_3759

Venus goes retrograde October 5th in Scorpio. I myself have my natal Venus in the 8th house, the astrological house ruled by Scorpio. Let me tell you that when it comes to anything Venus related and Scorpio, get ready for a unworldly emotional subconscious dive into the deep dark ocean of the unknown.

It is mysterious, intriguing and ambiguous. Yet believe me when I tell you nothing will rock your core and transform you quite like an Scorpio aspect/transit will. Scorpio is some serious business, known to be the emotional water sign that represents everything dark and extremely sensual. It is a sign to me right up there with Pisces & Cancer that represents the most intuitionaly inclined energy of all the astrological signs. However though where Pisces is the dreamy/spiritual type & Cancer is the nurturing/emotionally intuitive type, Scorpio is the shadowy/underworld type.

So Venus going retrograde in this sign, for pretty much the entire month of October (going Direct 11/16/18) will bring some seriously fated aspects to your love life. First and foremost anyone with even the slightest knowledge of astrology will tell you the #1 rule of Venus retrograde is you do not undergo any extreme beauty regiments like liposuction, Botox, a drastically new hairdo….Hell, I’d even leave those eyebrows alone if I were you…just sayin. Just don’t do it… trust me on this one & with this particular Venus retrograde with a square mars aspect, just wait.

I would also highly be on the look out for ex lovers or opportunities of forbidden affairs to arise. Be extremely careful with the kind of energy you adhere to because as previously stated, the things that occur in this time are very fated and will stick with you for a lifetime. I’m also a big advocate of steering away from proposals of marriage during this time. Those who typically become or announce engagements during a Venus retrograde will have big time problems….. if the relationship even lasts until they get to the altar….. to be frank.

Then we will have our New Moon in Libra 10/8/18, with some awfully caring and empathetic energy enveloping us. So this would be a lovely time to set some sincere and sensitive intentions towards your family matters. Beware though of the intense Pluto square aspect to this new moon. This will add drama due to Pluto, the planet ruled by Scorpio (that deep, dramatic energy yet again). So handle your affairs with a gentle and loving energy. I wish all of you the happiest of Octobers! Namaste!

New Moon in Virgo & Me

We have a fortunate new moon in Virgo occurring. Personally I am ready to declare some serious new moon intentions. Virgo is an extremely detail oriented and focused sign. I can not imagine a better type of energy you would want behind and driving your fresh intentions for the month.

I have found myself shedding so many ego issues with the recent Neptune activity as well. I find myself sharper and just a little bit more prepared for the next chapter than say I was about a couple of weeks ago. That’s the way it works though… In July & August we were undergoing so many seriously transformative eclipses, with the sole purpose of shaking us all up energetically.

Communication was hindered as well with the mercury retrograde and shadow periods. So finally at this time, for the first time in months we can shed the cocoon of the summers eclipse and retrograde seasons and not only finally declare but fully focus on where desire to go next. Another aspect of note with this new moon in particular is with the opposition to Neptune-the planet of confusion, deception, and fear. This new moon is about uncovering some major fears to achieve the essential confidence we need for success and to forage on.
