Try ~ Pink

Oh oh

Ever wonder about what he’s doing?
How it all turned to lies?
Sometimes I think that it’s better to never ask why

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Eh, eh, eh

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy?
Even when it’s not right

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Ever worry that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you’re out there doing what you’re doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by, by, by?

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

 

It’s a three page week ~ I print out the aspects every week before writing the column. Usually there are a page and half of aspects and sometimes there are two pages of aspects.  This week we have a three page week! That means the world is going to be running from one place to the next experiencing all the energy taking place above our heads down here on earth.  Busy, Busy, Busy!!  The front half of the week has oodles of aspects.  Thursday and Friday are huge and choice filled.  The weekend holds quite a bit of emotion, pain and sadness.

 

Most important, Mars is a busy guy this week!  Mars in Pisces trines Poseidon, another watery fellow, on Tuesday, bringing buckets of fluid our way in the form of frosty water!  The East Coast is anticipating a HUGE snowstorm… Feet not inches!  Mars quintiles and contra parallels Sedna, another Ocean Goddess, on Tuesday and Thursday respectively, saying we’ll be getting OUT, digging OUT of the Snow storm as of Thursday.  Right after that, Mars sextiles Pluto on Friday, activating a health energy ~ be careful shoveling all that snow! That starts to get us back to work!

 

Finally, and perhaps most important, Mars joins up with Chiron at 15 Pisces on Saturday.  Mars aspects build in intensity as they approach their target.  Mars/Chiron conjoined starts a new two year cycle around how we heal our soul’s wound and take action in the world.  Of course, Mars usually WOUNDS US AS he starts a new chapter.  So be careful of knives, weapons, emotions and things flowing out of control…Chiron was wounded by poison from Medusa’s blood so watch for poisons and blood infections.  No fooling around with them!  These are heavy duty aspects so go to the doctor when in doubt about ANY health matters.

 

Chiron represents where we have a deep soul wound in our being. Chiron was wounded in a way that never healed. We each have a soul wound that will not heal in our current life time. We can figure out how to work with it.  We can accept it.  We can use OUR wisdom to help OTHERs heal their wounds.  However, we NEVER heal in this spot.  Unfortunately, our wound will be activated this week by Mars coming to join Chiron.  As Mars approaches Chiron, we’ll have some kind of experience that activates the deep, unrelenting sadness in our soul. Bless that space. Be gentle with yourself. Trust the process of Mars piercing the wound and asking us to go into that space in a kind and loving manner with ourselves.  The world can be a rough place sometimes.

 

Venus enters Pisces on Tuesday, adding more water and fluid to an already sodden sky.  She’s in Pisces until February 20.  The North Node, responding to and ruled by Venus in her exaltation, invites us to partner, collaborate and share with others.  Venus in Pisces is a kinder, gentler Venus who sees the soul’s potential rather than the reality of dirty socks and smelly parts.  She’s all about gracious and genteel!

 

Right before Mars sextiles Pluto and joins Chiron, Venus squares Saturn on Friday.  Love and relationships that aren’t fulfilling a higher purpose or showing up in a way that supports our new vision reach a tipping point and shift in energy.  This is an argument or fight energy.  It is the set up for the tough energy on the weekend.  On Sunday, Venus joins up with Neptune to start a new year long cycle around her dreams.  Getting to Sunday will be harsh.

 

Vesta enters Aquarius on January 28 making house and home a priority.  She’s in Aquarius until March 28.  She looks at things and gets rid of them if she doesn’t love them. You’ll find you are clearing out drawers, closets and cupboards with her passage through Aquarius.  Donations to charities actually go UP as she gives stuff away to groups she supports.

 

Mercury has a number of aspects inviting consciousness as he moves retrograde backwards through the zodiac.  He links up with the Sun in Aquarius by retrograde making him rather opinionated and not so willing to share or compromise on his “ideals”.  He’s kind of cold and chilly actually.  Watch for invitations and offers on Wednesday ~ they should be seriously considered.

 

Uranus and Pluto continue to travel forward together, on the road again, separated by about a degree as they approach their final, seventh square on March 15.  Their energy will continue to be intense.  On any given day, you can be either Pluto or Uranus as you and the world bounce along in all this turbulent energy.

 

We enter a period of frequent day long void Moons because Saturn entered Sagittarius.   The last degrees of the various planets are in early degrees in the zodiac. Take the day long void moons and use them to connect with your spiritual purpose on earth.

 

All week, the Moon has productive and pleasant ending energies with three, count them, THREE day long void moons ~ Wednesday, Friday and Sunday!  Monday’s Aries Moon goes void in the Morning and enters Taurus. Taurus Moon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday has great closing aspects of a square to Jupiter ~ promising over doing and over spending.  Moon is void Wednesday ~SNOW DAY!!  Wednesday night Moon enters Gemini for Thursday and Friday with closing aspects of a sextile to Jupiter ~ more days to get things accomplished. Moon is void all day Friday. The weekend is tougher. Lots of ending energy and deep wounding energy ~ very, very emotional as the Moon is in Cancer.  It is void all day Sunday too.

 

There will be lots of departures of people hanging on by threads or who are sick or have emotional wounds that seem impossible. It is a big suicide week.  Connect and send lots of love to folks who are feeling depressed or suicidal or sad ….Mars joining with Chiron can cause unexpected wounds from knives or water or to feet as both are in Pisces…

Happy Endings ~ Sugarland

Cowboys ride into sunsets
The good guy always gets the girl
Cinderella has just fit
A glass slipper that changed her world

We all know the stories
We all know the fairy tales
We all get the glory of making it for ourselves

From the beginning
We’re all looking for a happy ending
Every dream of winning
Every love we’ve been in
Right from the beginning
We’re looking for a happy ending

We’ve come here with nothing
And take it with us the day we leave
The first and last breath don’t matter
It’s all the ones that are in-between
It’s the reason for living
It’s the reason the caged bird sings
It’s why we sit in the movies
All the way to the closing scenes

From the beginning
We’re all looking for a happy ending
Every dream of winning
Every love we’ve been in
Right from the beginning
We’re looking for a happy ending

And all those dreamers who have come and gone
Who’ve reached for the stars, who’ve overcome
You’re the hope, you’re the wish, you’re the truth
Baby, here’s the proof

Baby’s born in this ghetto
Baby’s born with a silver spoon
One tells his Mama I have a dream
One tells his Mama I’ll walk the moon

From the beginning
We’re all looking for a happy ending
Every dream of winning
Every love we’ve been in
Right from the beginning
We’re looking for

From the beginning
We’re all looking for a happy ending
Every dream of winning
Every love we’ve been in
Right from the beginning
We’re looking for a happy ending

 

Void Moons in the Week Ahead:  When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles.  Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center.  It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns.  Kick back, let life flow, and center yourself.  Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.

Moon day Monday January 26, 2015  ~ Moon in Aries goes void Sextile to Venus at 09:24:16 am EST. Moon enters Taurus at 11:38:20 am EST and Moon goes void Square to Jupiter so we are quite productive Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday under the guidance of an exalted Moon in Taurus having fun with the jolly Jupiter in Leo.  Expect creativity and excitement with these energies.  Lots of dreams last night had you tossing and turning, awakening early with a sense of purpose and perhaps an ah-ha moment from some dream revelation.  Mercury’s aspect to Chiron causes you to slip back into the older energy.  Today is a good day to make changes around your home or office to make it more to your liking using the Venus /Vesta /Pluto energy.  Our homes reflect our being.  Take a good look at your house and office to see what it says about you.  I had a good friend who hired a Feng Shui person to come look at her home.  He pointed out the chair of dolls in her relationship corner in her bedroom ~  NOT perhaps what she was looking for in a partner but certainly descriptive of her love life.  Walk around your house or office and see what it says about who you are… Mercury retrograde in Aquarius means that everyone talks about it!  Pallas aspects Poseidon making the ocean and seas wild today as well as patterns in weather ~ yes that big old storm affecting the east coast is part of astrology too.  Ben Franklin’s Farmer’s Almanac was based on astrology.

 

Mars’s day Tuesday January 27, 2015 ~ Moon in Taurus goes void Square to Jupiter at 09:19:32 pm EST. Moon is void Tuesday night and all day Wednesday.  Quite a productive day and fairly energized too.  For most of the east coast, it is a snow day as we had a blizzard with all the water energy active in the heavens ~ Neptune, Chiron, Poseidon, and Sedna.  Mercury’s semisextile to Pluto says the story changes. Saturn’s inconjunct to Hades invokes the hell of second guessing after the fact. Venus enters Pisces for a softer energy.  A deep desire to stay home and not go out into the wide world invites us to nestle in.  Mars quintile with Sedna makes maneuvering in the storm or the energy you find yourself in involves not being sacrificed. Ask for what you want. Mars trine to Poseidon reminds us of the power of the Ocean and water ~ even frozen water.  Deep emotions swirl around our being and head.

 

Wednesday Mercury’s day January 28, 2015 ~ Moon in Taurus is all day Wednesday. Moon is VOID all day Wednesday.  Moon enters Gemini at 05:37:09 pm EST and goes void Sextile to Jupiter.  It is a productive day, with oodles of aspects.  Focus on what you want to accomplish and go for it~ just work on existing projects rather than new ones.  Mercury’s sextile to Uranus expands your communications and your knowledge.  Learn a new skill.  Mars square to Pallas offers an opportunity to break old patterns that aren’t working for you. Or perhaps a bad pattern resurfaces ~ squash it quickly.  Not a great sleeping night as there are oodles of aspects stirring causing stimulating dreams. Mars aspecting the Nodes brings a dream of action or choice. Pay attention to the images.  Pallas aspecting the Nodes invites a pattern change. Mercury’s sextile to Pallas asks for a deeper commitment to change than you usually do.  Give your word and KEEP it!  Make a deal with your higher self ~ Moon in Taurus will help you get there!  Vesta enters Aquarius until March 28.  Clarity around home and hearth!  You see it with a whole new set of eyes!  Mercury aspects the Nodes of Destiny so notice who you connect with around 3:37 pm EST.  They could be important or bring important news. ….Email, twitter and Facebook count too!  Moon enters Gemini so expect fun with friends tonight.  A family member or mother figure can leave your life tonight.  Make sure to tell them you love them!  Interesting news around 11:51 pm EST… that phone call carries important news.

 

Jupiter’s Day Thursday January 29, 2014  ~ Moon in Gemini goes void Sextile to Jupiter making today a great day for communications and connections.  Dreams were wild again last night as Mars and Uranus had you tossing and turning.  Pallas aspects the nodes of destiny and invites us to see clearly the relationships we are in and the patterns involved in them.  Release things from your home or environment that need to GO!!! Juno aspects Admetos and the Sun making her rather proud and unwilling to continue with the situation the way it has been going.  She’s over it!  And somebody in your world ~ perhaps you? ~ are OVER it!  Health matters that surface tonight need to be taken seriously!  Go to the doctor.  No going to bed ~ go to the doctor!  Astraea on the South Node is a departing energy on health matters… Mars contra parallel to Sedna, the other Ocean Goddess active this week, brings in more water and storms or very deep and dark emotions.  Venus trine to Hades invokes ending energy and shifts that are profound.

 

Friday Venus’s Day January 30, 2014 ~ Moon in Gemini goes void Sextile to Jupiter at 04:25:29 am EST. Moon is void all day Friday.  Emotions build as Mars approaches his union with Chiron and a number of stressed aspects take place today.  Venus squares Saturn bringing difficult choices in relationships ~ we are a crisis point in identity.  There is also a deep desire to clear up or change things for the better as Vesta and Venus aspect Apollon ~ a desire to let the sun shine in… to believe in the happy ending.  Our week bounces us between the two songs selected ~ Try by Pink and Happy Endings by Sugarland ~ which will it be?  Maybe both at the same time in different places in your life?  They are NOT mutually exclusive.  There is also a bit of envy involved as the Sun quintiles Eris ~ we have to honor envy as a solid motivating factor in many situations.  In this case, Envy inspires.  Neptune’s aspect to the Node inspires a vision of the future.  Mars sextile to Pluto is an aspect to take action ~ pressure to do it and move forward. It makes today productive for forward motion.  Venus’ trine to Hygiea adds a healing energy to the mix.  Comfort yourself today by connecting with ideas that inspire or friends that listen well. Sun’s union with Mercury retrograde means folks will be thinking they are right. No arguing. Let them (and you) process.  Aquarian planets disagree for the sake of disagreeing!  It is instinctual to say “nope, not doing THAT!” They live in the land of NO.  Uranus trine to Pallas says offer them a choice to get them to get out of NO into focusing on options. Expect arguments mid-day as folks are just plain tired and tuckered out.  Maybe early to bed ~ at lunch time?  Take some space and get away for a bit. Moon is void anyway so you aren’t missing anything important. Mars links up with Zeus tonight so the energy exists to do something fun.  Time to release some old home or stuff energy so if you find yourself cleaning closets or the refrigerator tonight you are in harmony with the heavens!

 

Saturn’s Day Saturday January 31, 2015 ~ Moon enters Cancer at 02:09:43 am EST and goes void Trine to Mars.  Today is the hardest day of the week ~ Mars links up with Chiron and the wounding and subsequent re-healing begins.  Our soul connects on a deeper level with the Chiron placement by sign and house in our chart. Stimulating Chiron in the sky, Mars the planet of ouch, accidents and action can rewound us.  OR we can move the energy to a higher level.  Where we are wounded, where we seek to heal, that is where our wisdom is.  Dreams last night were strong and clear about how to proceed in partnerships and communicate (or stop communicating) your needs.  Take action to connect in a deeper way with your essential being.  Deep and profound emotions.  You can’t fix it.  You can know it is a reflection of whatever you say….

Some people, say life is hard. It is not.

Some people say it’s easy. It is not.

Some say it’s lonely, tricky, or a test. It is not.

Life is only a reflection of whatever you say.

What say you?  ~ Tut The Universe

 

Sun’s day Sunday February 1, Moon in Cancer goes void Trine to Mars at 08:37:52 am EST. Moon is void all day Sunday and Monday morning productive around family matters and home issues however the Void moon is better used for organizing or frittering or sorting  projects than beginning new things.  Work on existing projects.  The emotional wounds from the past few days start to dissipate and ease.  Sun’s productive aspects to the Nodes of Destiny encourage a new chapter and perhaps a new connection or direction to head in.  Move on down the road!  Dreams last night were informative and inspirational… no more subservience or agreeing to be less than you are supposed to be. South Node has a mighty strong health aspect to Poseidon so pay attention to infections and get on them.  Venus joins with Neptune to start a new year long cycle of creativity, joy and love.  Venus is in her favorite sign so take advantage of her energy to launch you in a new direction or into a passion or reconnect (it is Mercury retrograde after all) with an old passion.  Uranus union with Astraea invites an expansion of healing energy or connections tonight.  Next week will be busy so early to bed!
