A Magical Pathway With Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn in Tow

12 Jul

magic pathway 1Every once and again something pretty neat comes along via the planets. Yes …. they are always turning (they planets change position every 2 minutes) but it’s not often that they move in a direction that is simply special.  It’s kind of like we’re walking down a magical pathway and nobody’s quite sure where the path will lead…. but it looks soooo pretty at the end that we just can’t help moving closer.

Right now we’re in one of those special and rare kind of planetary times that could deliver something spectacular. I like to think of it as a once in a life time kind of thing – because quite honestly it won’t be happening again for quite a long while.  If you’re affected (early water sign degrees which include Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio – particularly 4 degrees will feel it the most) you could really benefit in a big way.  A planetary blessing of some sort could be in play for you.

The reason for this “planetary something special” has to do with three planets.  Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune are all moving together to form a beneficial combination called a “Grand Trine.” A Grand Trine is a opportunistic formation and since these planets are slower moving (Neptune being the slowest and Jupiter the fastest) it’s not that often that they meet up in such a beneficial way.

Jupiter is the lucky planet that just makes opportunity fall out of the sky while Saturn is the taskmaster planet that keeps us in check.  He’ll only benefit us after we’ve put in some hard work. Neptune is the dreamer that whips up everything grand that fluffy dreams are made of.  He’s the planet that makes us fall in love and get caught up in the moment.

What could all three of these energies working together bring you ask?  We’ll, time will tell my friends!  It’s certainly a special thing and if you’re in the midst of any new opportunities then you’re probably walking through this magical path.  I think in regards to love matters, there’s high probability of people “rekindling” old romances or “reconnecting” in some special way.  Meeting someone new may not be the best thing since we are in Mercury retrograde – but that ends on July 20th. You typically don’t end up staying with people you meet during Mercury retrograde – but it’s a great energy for going back to past relationships. However, anyone you are hanging around with right now could be inspiring in some way, make you feel good about yourself or motivate you to follow your dreams.

We’re in the peak of it now with the Grand Trine moving exact between July 17-19th.   However, the effects are in play for most of July so embrace it and feel the magic 🙂

Blog Location Has Been Moved – In Honor of Mercury Retrograde

5 Jul

movedI wanted to let everyone know that I’ve moved my blog over to my own personal website.  Anytime you go to the old WordPress url (https://crystalbastrology.wordpress.com) you’ll be redirected to my new and improved blog (http://crystalbastrology.com/blog/).  If you could update the location on your end, I’d really appreciate it!  I’ve worked hard over the years to build up my readership so I truly hope to not lose anyone in the process 🙂  I appreciate everyone who comes to visit me and read what I have to say.

Mercury retrograde has made me “clean up my shop” a little and reorganize all of my content.  I’m still working on making it better and learning lots of new things along the way.  It’s been pretty neat to look back and see just how much I have written over the past several years and I’m glad I did it – even though it’s been a little tough to embrace the new.  I’ve been a little scared to do it – but I’m taking the leap now 🙂

If I am currently following your blog, I’m working on re-following it from my new blog which is still be hosted by WordPress.  Thank you so much for all of your support over the years and I look forward to “seeing” you on my new blog!

Special Delivery for Monday’s New Moon!

5 Jul

drinksMonday’s a big day when it comes to the planets – Astrology style ;-)   First we’ve got Saturn who’s turning direction which is a big event in itself.  You can read more about that here.  Secondly, we’ve got a pretty powerful New Moon in 16 degrees Cancer and this could bring some good stuff our way.  There’s a lot of ”planetary punch” behind this something “new” that you could be thinking of starting.

Now, when I’m talking about punch I mean the smooth, sweet, delicious kind.  Think of yourself sipping your favorite cocktail on the beach with a waiter at your beck and call eager to deliver a refill.  Wow you say … and the planets say wow back ;-)   Yes it’s a grand occurrence and the reason for this easiness is because we’ll have the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter AND Neptune all working together in a savory kind of way.  Just think of that cocktail with the pretty little umbrella and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

All the Water signs, which include Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, will likely feel the planetary benefits the most – however every sign could benefit. Everyone deserves a drink in my opinion but only some of us will really get one ;-)  It all depends where 16 degrees Cancer falls in your chart and which planets will be sparked by this New Moon.

The good news is that we’re in calm planetary territory now which is well deserved after all the planetary turmoil we’ve endured in the last few months.  However, even though things are beginning to balance out, some of us may feel a big push to start something new (primarily because of Saturn’s movement forward).  Whatever it is you’ve been pondering (possibly since February) this is the time to go for it.  It may come to you a lot easier that you think.  If luck has anything to do with it – things could just fall into your lap while you sip on that delicious cocktail and signal your waiter to bring another ;-)

This is a Woman’s World Echoes Jupiter’s Entrance into Cancer

25 Jun

CHERCher had exquisite timing in her new single release entitled “This is a Woman’s World.”  I heard the tune a few days ago and I must admit it’s quite catchy.  I couldn’t help but crank up the volume in my car as I listened.  It made me proud to be a woman and it made me feel like I’m living in a time where women rule.  It’s pretty amazing how one of music’s most popular woman icons decided to make a come back just as Jupiter hits the sign of Cancer.  It’s not only Astrologically appropriate but echoes precisely what Jupiter is going to do as he glides through the sign of Cancer over the next year or so. If Jupiter in Cancer was a person, he’d be in my car listening to Cher’s new song too.  His vibe would be all about celebrating women and all their courage and beauty.  He’d be clapping and dancing around – all pumped up in the vibe.Jupiter in Cancer is going to work really well for alot of us.  The planet of abundance operates well in the sign of Cancer so this should end up manifesting in a good way in our lives.  A lot of things will likely benefit from the passage including real estate, family matters, mothers, our homes, inheritances, legacies and most of all anything relating to women.

Over the next few months I’m sure we’ll hear more things in the media celebrating women.  We’ll probably hear more powerful women speak their voices and people will likely listen.  As a woman myself I’m excited for it and eager to see just what else Jupiter in Cancer is about to deliver.  For the moment, I’m going to continue to crank up my radio every time “This is a Woman’s World” comes on.  I can’t help to think of Jupiter singing along with me too ;-)

So go ahead and get in the spirit – crank up your volume – and listen!

Opportunity May Start Knockin’ – Come The End Of The Month

14 Jan

opportunity_knocksJupiter, the planet that brings abundance and a little luck, has been moving backward since October 4th and slowed things for many of us in the opportunity department.  The way it works in Astrology, is that the planets (most of them anyway) move forward and back.  If your chart is affected, the planet’s movements can allow you to get ahead while they move forward.  The opposite rings true as well and when they move back we can really take a step back as they rewind in motion.  It may seem like the silliest thing but the forward and backwards motion of a planet directly affects us.  If you’ve ever had a period of feeling like you “just can’t get ahead” a planet’s movement back may have been the culprit.

Thankfully, Jupiter is getting ready to turn direction and will start his forward move on January 30th!  This is really going to start to kick up some luck or opportunity – particularly for my Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius). It will also help you if your rising sign is in Sagittarius or if you have any planets in the Air signs.

The interesting thing to think about, however, is that Jupiter will be “stationing” or standing still about a week prior to his turn forward – which starts to happen next week.  This stationing effect kind of slows a planet down and his rays are very strong and intense while he’s in his still motion.

It’s a positive thing that the lucky planet is gearing up to move ahead and I’m personally looking forward to it.  A lot of us need a positive uplift and one coming from Jupiter can certainly remedy any winter blues that may have started to set in.  The other neat thing about the end of the month is that all of the planets will be moving forward.  This should really end up helping a lot of us get closer to our goals 😉

Gearing Up For Your Climb To The Top With The Capricorn New Moon

8 Jan

Capricorn's Climb to the Top We’ve got a lot of activity in the sign of Capricorn right now.  Starting on January 9th, there will be four planets living in the Capricorn.  The Sun, Venus, Mercury & Pluto will all be riding through the sign of hard work, seriousness, business savvy and determination.  Capricorn is all about getting to the top and my personal opinion is some of the best employees have a lot of Capricorn in the their chart.

With all of this Capricorn activity it’s definitely a great time to start something new – perhaps a new project or even a business.  You’ll have the will and drive to succeed there is no doubt.  This sign is willing to put in the hard work and absolutely detests laziness.  They will “bring it on” and never complain – slowly and methodically making their way to the top.  They usually get there too – even if they arrive a little bruised and beaten from their tough climb up.

Friday’s New Moon will also be in the sign of  Capricorn – 21 degrees to be exact.  A new moon signifies something new and you can get a glimpse of where that “something new” will be by seeing where it falls in your chart.  This could definitely be a time where a lot of us get in touch with the “mountain climber” within.  The New Moon could give you a new drive or vision to start something you’ve been thinking about.  Since the planets work in mysterious ways – perhaps this New Moon brings something unexpected to your door.  If it does – definitely consider the possibilities rather than dismiss them.  Capricorn is practical and practicality should never be dismissed 😉

If you’ve started some New Year’s resolutions – maybe you’ll kick it up a notch.  If you’ve been planning on started something new but haven’t had the drive to get it going …. perhaps the planets may give you the kick-start you’ve been needing.  However it plays out for each of us – there’s no doubt that this New Moon could bring something long lasting to your life.  There’s no doubt that we’ll all have a little extra help from the planets in helping us succeed in whatever we’re embarking upon.

Joy to Jupiter

21 Dec

joyRather than think about today being the end of the world – which clearly it isn’t – I thought it would be fun to spread a little holiday cheer and tell you a little more about Jolly ‘ol Jupiter.  I always picture the planets as people with personalities – since they all have their own unique stamp.  When Jupiter behaves himself he reminds me of Santa Claus since he can affect us in very positive ways.

Jupiter can bring us “presents” of all sorts out of the blue.  He’s sort of like Santa delivering lots of goodies on Christmas Eve to all the good little boys and girls.  When he comes around in your life he, too, can bring you lots of blessings that deliver happiness, luck and prosperity in particular areas of your life.  Whenever I talk to a person about their chart, one of my favorite things to do is find out where that Jolly Jupiter is!  His presence in our charts denotes luck or abundance in whatever area he’s living in and he’s usually always helping you somewhere – we just might not realize it at the time.

Right now Jupiter is living in the sign of Gemini and he’ll be dancing with the twins (Gemini is representative of twins!) until the end of June.  What this means is that he’ll be helping out all you Geminis, Libras & Aquarians.  The timing of when he will help you depends on the day and year of your birth.

Then at the very tail end of June, Jupiter will enter the sign of Cancer and start spreading good cheer to all my water signs!  Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces will all benefit from which Jupiter’s swim through Cancer which will last for the rest of 2013 and even into 2014.  My personal feel is that the water signs have taken a real beating in 2012 and the prosperity of Jupiter is definitely something to look forward to!

Joy to Jupiter and all the good tidings he will hopefully bring to in the New Year ahead.

Happy Holidays everyone!
