022 | Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde

It’s time to handle Mercury Retrograde like a total boss… 💫

In this episode, we’re uncovering all the dirt about the infamous cosmic phenomenon known as Mercury Retrograde – both the basic concepts you’ve probably already heard before – and the deeper, more soulful side of Mercury we don’t hear about nearly enough, so you can actually use these reflection periods that happen 3-4 times per year to your advantage in your life & career.

We cover:

  • What Mercury rules over in astrology and why it seems to affect us so much when it goes into retrograde once every season
  • What is really happening during Mercury Retrograde and how we can harness it to experiment and learn lessons (rather than blame it for every little thing that goes wrong!)
  • A list of all of the things that can happen… and why you can boldly throw out the “do’s & don’ts” and simply aim to adopt a curious attitude without needing to buy into the chaos or let it rule your life

In this episode, I’m chatting with Destinee Berman, a ♎️ Libra Sun, ♋️ Cancer Moon & ♑️ Capricorn Rising, about how she transformed 15 years of experience in Silicon Valley managing clients like Twitter, HP, and Microsoft into helping spiritual practitioners who shy away from charging for their spiritual and healing work get paid without selling out by packaging their calling into a course and her tips on how you can do the same.

We cover:

  • How you can approach marketing your work more intuitively rather than feeling slimy, salesy, cheesy or fake
  • How what Destinee does is beautifully reflected in her astrology chart
  • Destinee’s story of how she found her cosmic calling

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

What’s your current strategy for success? With the Sun moving through your 8th house of Business & Finance for most of this month, the big focus for you is all about your money – how you’re managing it, where it’s going, and especially on how to keep it coming in using smarter strategies that can help you pad your bottom line without selling out – or burning out – just to get by. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th is your call to start imagining what it would look and feel like to be fully supported by your finances so you can start to bring this dream vision down to earth and make it real.

There are SO many other big things going on this month, but one of the biggest is coming from Jupiter’s jubilant shift on November 8th into your 9th house of Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery (where it will be for the entire next year!), starting you off with a sneak peek of 2019 by bringing you plenty of exciting opportunities to expand your horizons through travel, learning, and happily exiting your comfort zone in favor of faraway lands and strange new subjects! Perhaps this is even the year you step up and honor yourself as the teacher, mentor, or guide you’ve always held the potential to be.

Almost a week later, Venus Retrograde will finally be ending its experimental run through your Relationship Zone where it has been helping you revisit your true values when it comes to how you relate with those closest to you while giving you another look at how you would most like to be supported within relationships, partnerships, or even client work of all kinds. When it ends, you can take what you have learned with you as you set stronger boundaries with others and refuse to settle for less than what you’re truly worth.

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

Whether we are talking about romance or the connections you keep with your colleagues, this is a month to take an extra long look at your relationships with others. As the Sun moves through your Relationship zone, and your ruling planet Venus finishes up its rare retrograde in your Work sector, there is a great need to revive the vibe of any and all joint ventures in order to get everyone on the same page. An especially auspicious New Moon in Scorpio on November 7th is the ideal time to start setting clearer boundaries and make a wish list to lay out how you would like to see your closest bonds flourish and grow more closely in alignment with your true needs and desires over the next 6 months.

The day after the New Moon, prosperity planet Jupiter turns the page to start a new chapter in your 8th house of Business & Finance, bringing you a new set of opportunities to get on track with a more enjoyable strategy for making your money flow in more magically. The next 12 months will be an especially beautiful time to start a business or take an existing venture to the next level!

The grand finale of this busy month will be the Full Moon in Gemini which will be lighting up your 2nd house of Love, Money, Values & Self Worth on the 22nd. For some hard-working Taureans, this could spell a major payday! At the very least, you can use this lunation to get clearer on what you want and what you can do to become wide open to receive it by cultivating the mindset that you are fully capable and deserving of calling in true abundance through your life’s work.

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

Okay, Gemini, it’s time to get organized! As the Sun moves through Scorpio and your 6th house of Daily Work & Wellness, getting as serious about the things you do when you’re off the clock as what you do when you’re at work can help you optimize your daily flow in a way that leaves you feeling fully in alignment in everything you do. Whether this means choosing to cook healthier meals at home, creating a habit of stopping by the gym before or after work, setting up a new scheduling system, or simply taking a cold hard look at your life to ensure your priorities are in the right order as you lay out your daily to-do’s, the New Moon on November 7th is your time to start getting clearer on how you want to create more harmony and balance by supporting your overall wellbeing more strongly.

On November 8th, Jupiter will move on down the line as it enters into Sagittarius, signaling the start of an amazing year for your love life and business partnerships of all kinds. It has been 12 years since this area of your life has gotten such a lucky boost! Get ready to finally find your “power couple”-worthy other half or even build up a 1-on-1 client practice that feels mutually supportive and aligned.

Finally, a Full Moon will rise up on the 22nd in your sign. This is an amazing time to look back at how far you have come in the past 6 months and celebrate the person you have grown to be while also casting aside the parts of your identity or personal brand you are no longer jiving with and finally feel fully ready to cut loose so you can embrace the true you.

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

Scorpio Season brings an amazing opportunity for you to create your next passion project as the Sun moves through your 5th house of Fun & Creativity through November 21st. What ideas have been playing out in your mind that you are now ready to bring forth and make tangible and real? It’s time to stop sitting on your magic and start to share more of it with the world. The New Moon on November 7th is your cue to begin envisioning how you’d like to infuse your life & work with more of your innate creative spark and transform your projects to the next level over the coming 6 months.

The very next day, Jupiter moves into your Wellness sector, where it will be spending the next 12 months helping you bring more joy into your daily flow. As a Cancer, you tend to be too preoccupied with others’ needs to pay enough attention to your own. However, this is a year filled with opportunities to streamline your schedule, reinvigorate your habits for optimal health, and find more exciting ways to support yourself in a way that truly serves your overall wellbeing the most.

As this month begins the process of fading out, a Full Moon will illuminate the sky in your dreamy 12th house of Spirituality & Deep Reflection on the 22nd. This is the ultimate time for introspection, shadow work, and releasing limiting beliefs or heavy emotions that have been holding you back from pursuing your greater purpose and passion, so be sure to carve out some quiet time for yourself to take a break, light some candles, journal, and make space to allow your soul to be truly heard and seen.

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

This month is all about getting grounded and rooted as the Sun moves through your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security. Whether this means getting clearer on what you can do to create more comfort on a financial level, carving out more time in your schedule to focus on your family, or creating a cozier atmosphere within your home or office that gets you inspired to focus on your work, the New Moon on November 7th will an ideal time to start making a solid plan for how you can create a stronger foundation to support your future growth.

Some of the most exciting news of the year is coming on November 8th when the planet of bountiful blessings, Jupiter, moves forward into your 5th house of Fun and Creativity, where it will be hanging out through the end of 2019. Get ready for an amazing year to tap into that creative spark and create more of the things you wish existed in the world! It’s also been 12 years since you have been given full permission like this to allow yourself to be more light-hearted and simply do things just because they’re plain fun.

As the moon lights up more and more throughout the month, culminating in a Full Moon on the 22nd, the efforts you have been putting forth to connect with your community will finally come to a head. What have you been working on to help make the world a better place in your own special way? Whether we are talking about improving the lives of your followers on social media or real, live people in your local friend circle, this will be the time to celebrate the connections you’ve made and start to think about what you can do to build upon them and spread your work even further.

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

It’s time to get your ideas out of your head and get your message heard! For most of this month, the Sun is streaming through your 3rd house of Social Networking, calling you to step out into the world and make it clear what you’re all about. This is a great month for forging connections that can bring about mutual benefits and laying out a fresh marketing strategy that will allow you to speak your mind and share your mission, therefore leading to greater success. The New Moon on November 7th is especially ideal for starting to make a wish list of people you’d like to reach out to who could help take your work even further – extra bonus points if writing their name down sort of scares you!

On November 8th, a major turning point occurs as Jupiter shifts into Sagittarius and your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security for the next 12 months. This could be the year you finally find the ideal place to live, expand the joyful feelings within your family life, or get set up with a firmer foundation that will lead to even greater success in your future. This beautiful grounding energy hasn’t come your way in nearly 12 years, so it will come as a welcome relief to finally feel more rooted in where you stand.

Get ready for greatness because, toward the end of the month, a Full Moon will rise up to illuminate your Career Zone in its full glory! The 22nd is an amazing time to see where your career efforts have taken you over the past 6 months and release any expectations or so-called failures that you have perceived to be holding you back from making the bigger and more meaningful impact you were truly meant to make through your life’s work.

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

What do you really want, Libra? For most of this month, the Sun is swimming through your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting as it urges you to get clear on what you are truly hoping to receive from your life & career – whether that is a certain amount of money or a feeling you would like to feel more often. Often times this process requires getting clear on what you don’t want first, and the New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th will be helpful for allowing you to see what needs to be released from your life so you can make room for more of the people, things, or experiences your heart is actually craving.

Your ruler Venus will finally be ending its rare 6-week retrograde on November 16th as it stops again and turns around in your sign to illuminate the lessons you’ve been asked to look deeper into especially when it comes to your self-image and how you portray yourself to the world. There may have been a lot of confusion around this very subject, so when the planet of love, money & beauty resumes forward motion again in the second half of the month, you can finally get the go-ahead to get going on that exciting re-brand or wardrobe makeover knowing you’re in the safe zone.

Probably the most exciting news of this month is the shift of prosperity planet Jupiter into your 3rd house of Social Networking, ushering in a year-long phase that will see you rising the ranks as the resident social butterfly of the zodiac! This is an amazing year to amp up your social media strategy and get out to network with more like-minded people to form connections that can be mutually beneficial in moving you both forward towards your greater goals. Don’t be afraid to use that Libra charm to put yourself out there, share your message, and make it ultra clear what you’re hoping to achieve!

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

Happy birthday, Scorpio! As the Sun focuses its rays on your sign for most of the month, this is your time to shine by taking all of that deep sea soul searching you went through last month and turning it into gold! It really doesn’t matter what other people will think – stop hiding and start a new project that showcases the real you. Whether you’re itching to re-brand or simply wishing to portray yourself in a new light, the New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th will be your cue to reinvent yourself by envisioning your ideal and most authentic life & career and beginning to lay out the steps to make it real.

On the 8th, the planet of joy and abundance, Jupiter, makes its way out of your sign and into your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting. 2018 has been such a major year for you to step up as the leader of your own life and become more unapologetically you. Now that you know who you are and what you stand for, you’re primed and ready to receive more of the blessings you desire. The next 12.5 months will be amazing for manifesting money, appreciation, and more beauty into your life as well!

Finally, a Full Moon will be rising in your 8th house of Business & Finance on the 22nd. If you’ve been smart with your money over the last 6 months, you’ll finally get a chance to see the results of your good work taking shape. Since this Full Moon can also help you illuminate flaws in your financial strategy so you can plug up potential holes before you sink, it’s still a grand idea to do a full assessment of how you’re earning and spending your money to find ways to make your work feel all the more magical.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

They say Scorpio Season can bring stark realities to light, but his time of year can be especially tough for Sagittarians as the Sun moves through your 12th house of Spirituality & Deep Reflection. It’s a good month to take a pause to do some soul searching and ask yourself where you’re going with your life & work and why. What hopes and dreams do you still hold for the future, and which fears and worries do you need to let go of? The New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th is the start of a new 6-month cycle that will allow you to bring more magic and meaning into your greater life plan.

Lucky for you, whatever you may be going through is merely the darkness before the dawn. On the 8th, your ruling planet Jupiter will enter your sign for the first time in 12 years! This is just the very start of an incredibly exciting year when amazing opportunities will follow you around like a beautiful moth to a flame. It’s time to assert your independence, share your knowledge, and become your best and most unapologetically authentic self as other signs will now be hungrily looking to you to lead the way.

On November 22nd, the Sun also moves into your sign just as a Full Moon rises in your 7th house of Relationships & 1-on-1 work. This bright, and potentially uncomfortable, lunation will be blaring its lights on how you relate to others in general. Depending on your situation, it may be time to let go of a partnership that is no longer working or perhaps look for ways to improve and strengthen your bond. Service providers may also want to consider upgrading their client program to make it even more supportive for both sides.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

For most of this month, the Sun is soaring through your 11th house of Community & Friendship, helping you gain clarity around how you can best offer your expertise to improve the lives of others in your community. The truth is that the world is filled with people with problems that you are uniquely positioned to solve, and the New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th is the ideal time to start looking for smarter solutions to bridge the gap between what you have on tap that many others seem to need. If you’re a business owner, perhaps you could run a survey or simply pay closer attention to the real-life problems your ideal clients are always complaining about online.

In the meantime, get ready for a spiritual revolution! On the 8th, prosperity planet Jupiter jets into your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, kicking off a deeply meaningful year for reconnecting to the magic of your soul. This is just the beginning of a beautiful year for diving into esoteric subjects, traveling to spiritual hot spots, up-leveling your mindset, and renewing your faith in a greater purpose as you seek to better understand why you’re really here and how you can truly make the most of this life.

Finally, a Full Moon in Gemini will be lighting up your Health & Wellness sector on the 22nd as it calls upon you to prioritize taking better care of yourself as part of your daily to-do list. If healthy habits have taken a back seat to the pursuit of being busy, this Full Moon will be asking you to rejuvenate your routines & rituals and set stronger and more solid boundaries through time blocking to give yourself more of the self-loving support you truly need.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

How can you make a bigger impact through the work you’re putting out into the world? As the Sun moves through your 10th house of Career & Higher Calling, you’re meant to put greater focus on infusing more meaning and magic into your money-making efforts. This is not just about collecting a paycheck or persuading potential clients into contributing to your next payday, it’s about publically putting your talents towards the betterment of others’ lives in a way that makes you feel really super proud. Best of all, the New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th is just the beginning of a new 6-month cycle leading you ever closer towards your true calling!

However, the biggest news of this month comes on November 8th as Jupiter moves into your 11th house of Community & Friendship for the next 12.5 months. This is the beginning of an amazing year to expand your reach and find ways to connect to and serve your community in a way that feels especially fulfilling. While this can mean tripling your e-mail list or social media following, you could also forge closer friendships with like-minded souls to grow your own personal tribe simply by attracting them with your cool Aquarian vibe.

Just as the Sun moves into Sagittarius, a Full Moon will be lighting up your 5th house of Fun & Creativity on the 22nd. A creative project you’ve been working hard on may finally come full circle and this can be a joyous time to celebrate, have fun, and appreciate how far you’ve come! You may also give some thought on how to improve your work as you get to ruminating on how, next time, you can make it even better.

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

Where does your heart feel led to wander next? For most of November, the Sun will be sashaying through your 9th house of Education, Exploration, and Self-Discovery as it causes you to cultivate a craving for chasing your curiosities and embarking on new adventures and studies that make life fun & interesting again. Perhaps you may even feel called to bring back the interesting subjects you have already learned in order to teach and inspire others by writing a book or creating a course of your own. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th is your call to set your intentions into motion by grounding your ideas with a more solid plan for action.

By far the most exciting news, however, is the movement of prosperity planet Jupiter in your 10th house of Career & Higher Calling, where it will be boosting up your public standing and making your work feel even more magical than ever before! It’s been 12 long years since you have experienced this much potential for success, so make the most of this rare year-long lucky streak by harnessing your greatest interests, talents, and skills for the betterment of others… then watch the bountiful blessings and benefits roll in.

As we near the end of the month, a Full Moon in Gemini will brighten up your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security, either manifesting a more comfortable home life or helping you come to see where improvements still must be made. Whether this means smoothing over issues with your family, getting back on track with your long-term savings plan, or literally deciding you’d like to move, the goal is to figure out how you could feel even more grounded and rooted in your own cozy sacred space.

Forecasting

Monthly Forecast for November 2018

Ready for one of the most momentous astrological months of the year? 💫

There are SO many major planetary shifts and changes coming in this month that are starting to usher us into 2019, giving us a sneak peek at what is to come as we are flooded with a fresh burst of new energy that will be undeniably palpable.

First off, the Sun continues swimming through the darker waters of  ♏️ Scorpio – the sign of shadow work, endings, release, and emotional introspection – until November 22. During this time, we are meant to be re-evaluating our lives by looking at everything we are doing in our life & career from a bird’s eye perspective to get to the core of what feels off!

A New Moon in Scorpio on November 7th will be the ideal time to set your intentions around where in your life & career you are ready to transform to the next level, and a positive angle between Jupiter and the North Node of Future Destiny makes this an especially auspicious time to get out of your own way and embrace your higher potential. ⚡️

The very next day, prosperity planet Jupiter will officially finish its run through Scorpio, where it has been for the last year, bringing fresh opportunities into a whole new area of our lives that haven’t gotten an extra dose sparkle like this in nearly 12 years, as it moves into its home sign of Sagittarius on November 8th.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, Venus Retrograde will be ending just as Mercury Retrograde begins bringing a whole new round of confusion to our plans & ideas on November 16th! Plus, the same day the Sun moves into Sagittarius, we’ll be celebrating a socially intense Full Moon in Gemini on the 22nd – a.k.a. Thanksgiving in the United States. 🦃

And would you believe that this is only half of it? 2018 is clearly not going out without a BIG BANG!

019 | Awakening to Your Soul’s Purpose with Melissa Habibi

Melissa Habibi is a lightworker, soul healer, spiritual & life coach at Child of Gaia. Here’s how she found her cosmic calling…

In this episode, I’m chatting with Melissa Habibi, a ♐️ Sagittarius with ♌️ Leo Moon and ♉️Taurus Rising, about how she uses her empathic gifts to support healers and lightworkers to awaken and manifest their Soul’s Purpose and Destiny. We also discuss what it really means to be a lightworker, how to balance the spiritual with the practical side of working towards your bigger life mission, and how to work through emotional blocks that come up along the way.

We cover:

  • How Melissa found her purpose by helping others and choosing to take conscious action by following one clue at a time
  • Why trying to find the answer in your mind is not nearly as helpful as simply getting out there and taking action to discover what feels best to you when you’re doing it
  • Why NOT knowing what your purpose is can be a sign that you are in need of soul healing to get past blocks, obstacles, fears, and emotional patterns that are holding you back
  • What it means to be a lightworker and how lightworkers can learn to work with their empathic gifts to help others without draining their energy
  • How Melissa tunes into the energy field of her clients to help them awaken to their soul’s purpose and destiny
  • How Melissa’s astrology chart reflects the unique work she does for a living
  • How she deals with nasty comments online such as Youtube being such a sensitive empathic person
  • Looking at running and growing your own business as being the ultimate spiritual journey
  • Busting the age-old myth that healers shouldn’t charge for their gifts or that they can’t make that much money
  • The importance of giving the abundance you desire an access point to come into your life through your work
  • How to stop getting stuck in your head or stuck in overwhelm and actually get things done!

018 | Astrology and Karma (North & South Nodes)

What does the question of fate vs. free will have to do with astrology? 🌙

In this episode, I’m diving deep into the idea of how we can forecast the future using astrology and still retain the power of our free will. We’re also looking at two of the most karmic points in astrology – the North Node of Future Destiny & the South Node of Past Karma – and how we can use them as a compass to determine which past patterns we are meant to grow forth from and what type of energy to adopt in order to grow into our greater potential and move our lives and careers forward faster than we could if we just stayed in our comfort zones.

We cover:

  • Why forecasting astrology is not an exact science of seeing into the future (even though it can seem that way!)
  • Looking at free will as the concept that we get to choose how we react to the things we happen in our lives
  • The idea that we most likely choose the negative things we will experience in life as we planned them before we were born
  • The dangers of using astrology as a way to live in fear and superstition

Forecasting

Monthly Forecast for October 2018

A new month is just around the corner, and Monthly Forecast Videos are back! 💫

As we move into October, the Sun is streaming through the sign of ♎️ Libra until it moves into ♏️ Scorpio on October 23rd. This is a time to look at the energetics of your life – where are things off? Where can you add more lightness, beauty, and peace? A New Moon in Libra on October 8th will be the ideal time to set your intentions around how you would like to bring a more luxurious & harmonious feeling into your daily life and work.

However, before that, we have the very rare Venus Retrograde coming into play beginning on October 5th. This retrograde only occurs once every 18 months, and when it does, we are meant to take time to revisit our values – including money, love, beauty – which are all things that the planet Venus governs.

A Full Moon in Taurus will help us begin to close out the month on October 24th and it will present a major check-in for us to see if all of our hard work over the past 6 months has been leading us in the right direction.

Find out more about what’s in store for this month in the latest Monthly Forecast below…

 

 

 

Upcoming Events:

 

  • October 5 – Venus Retrograde Begins (until November 16)
  • October 8 – New Moon in Libra
  • October 24  Full Moon in Taurus

 

>> If you’re located in Australia or NZ, you may need to add +1 day to the dates above.

017 | Sacred Self-Care Rituals with Paula Pavlova

Paula Pavlova is the co-founder of GAIA Collective & MoonBox, the monthly subscription box for moon lovers. Here’s how she found her cosmic calling… 🌙

In this episode, I’m chatting with Paula Pavlova (a Taurus Sun, Virgo Moon, and Leo Rising) about how she turned her love of yoga, crystals, reiki, and other sacred self-care rituals into her career as a yoga & meditation teacher and crystal healer as well as the co-creator of a beautiful monthly subscription box that helps others create sacred self-care rituals to celebrate the phases of the moon as a way to get back in touch with themselves and reconnect with the energy of the earth.

We cover:

  • How Paula cultivated her spiritual practice and how it has helped her create sacred space to balance her energy, get grounded, and flow through life more easily and why she now seeks to help others do the same
  • How to learn how to go with the flow more instead of painfully forcing your goals to happen
  • The story of how GAIA Collective & the MoonBox subscription box came to be
  • How Paula’s calling is reflected in her astrology chart
  • Using sacred self-care rituals to help you follow your truth and see everything in life as your teacher
  • How to cultivate your own sacred self-care ritual by attuning to the most prominent element in your birth chart (i.e. fire, earth, air, water)
  • Making time for self-care rituals by crowding out the mindless activities you typically take part in throughout your day in order to create an opening for more mindfulness
  • Paula’s dream for the future of her business

  • What each day of the week is best for based on which planet they are each ruled by
  • What your best day of the week is based on your zodiac sign
  • How to plan with the moon
  • How to use the Sun to find out when your target market will be most receptive to what you have to share
