December 15 – 21. 2014

All times given are EST

Please understand that this week’s writing will be very brief. I am down to my last 2 days in Bali and just as the Uranus/Pluto square was happening and Saturn came to my Ascendant, I manifested some kind of Bali Bug and went down for the count. Staying in a space of allowance and observing it all is the challenge… onward and upward, riding the waves :)
Monday the 15th
Having just experienced the 6th of the Pluto/Uranus square, we rock into Monday with a Moon in Libra to process it all. Uranus in Aries wants to wake us up and rebel against restrictions and imposed limitations. Pluto in Capricorn invites us to find the deeper,  more powerful inner authority within ourselves … to transform our reality to a higher more conscious life.
Holding on, or attaching to the negative, fear-based collective thinking will not get us there. Finding your own inner truth and not settling for the illusion of safety will provide lift off to higher ground.
The Libra Moon activates the Pluto/Uranus square around midnight tonight, so watch and see what comes up for you and know that you have the power to find a new perspective no matter what someone shows you.
Tuesday the 16th
With a Moon in Libra all day, we are looking for balance and peace.. but willing to debate how to get it. Mercury and Saturn provide assistance just after 11 AM for implementing some long range,  concrete plans… so make your lists and mark your calendars.
Venus and Jupiter hook up  at 11:40 in a way that could lead to overdoing it… so watch out for over the top expressions, but let the loving feelings lead the way.
Mercury leave the expansive thinking territiry of Sagittarius and enters the building, leadership land of Capricorn at 10:53 PM. Look over all you have envisioned over the last month and use Capricorn to create new structures in the space you cleared over the last 2 months.
Wednesday the 17th
The Moon moves into the deep waters of Scorpio at 9:52 AM and then sextiles Mercury at 11:26 AM. This day is prime for investigation and communicating revelations in helpful ways.
Later tonight at 7:29 PM, we have a very intuitive trine between the Scorpio Moon and Neptune in Pisces. Our feelings can be easily expressed as long as we get over the fear of being “seen”!
Thursday the 18th
The Scorpio Moon squares Mars at 5:30 AM, so watch your temper and patience level. Breathe and give yourself extra time to avoid over reacting and annoyance. Best thing to do is make sure your internal GPS is tuned and aligned before you get going.
We can feel empowered by the sextile energy between the Moon and Pluto at 9:40 AM. Any changes you want to empliment can happen with greater ease and less resistance now.
Just after 7:00 PM, harsh tongues with careless words could get active… don’t let that be your choice.
Friday the19th
The Moon still in Scorpio until late afternoon and we may bump into lessons about needing to be in control through out the day. Remember true  power is in finding your own empowerment and not trying to control someone else. Dig deep to discover your own.
At 4:12 PM, the Moon joins Saturn at the last degree of Scorpio for the last time before Saturn moves into Sagittarius next Tuesday. This is a very revealing time, so what ever is possibly left to release, transform, rebirth or purge… do it now!
The Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius at 4:56 PM and things lighten up conciderably. At 6:35 PM Venus and Mars present a pleasant energetic that most likely will include some future plans so enjoy the conversatons and open heartedness that can emerge.s is a high acti
Saturday the 20th
This is a high activity day with way too much to cover!
Just know that shifts happen all day long and the morning presents a pleasant beginning. There could be some surprises concerning matters of the heart and unexpected news with a Venus Uranus square. just stay open and ready to be amazed.
At 4:07, Venus and Pluto form an exact conjunction in Capricorn and deeper commitments could be made… or toxic relationships could be shifted. Either way the heart is transformed in some way.
Tonight Mars and Uranus ask us to step outside the box and try something new. This Aquarius/Aries combo can be very liberating… go for it!
Sunday the 21st
Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius goes direct today and we have a New Moon at 0 degrees Capricorn at 8:35 PM E.S.T…. all happening at eh Winter Solstice!
SO much shift is present today, where to start? Uranus direct will take much of our awakening into greater outer expression and birth lot of New Beginnings as will this New Moon at 0 degrees Capricorn. We really have the potential today to make fresh starts and envision what we want to build into the upcoming future.
With Uranus turning direct, we get the go ahead to move and take actions that reflect the new consciousness we have stepped into. This Solstice Seeding is packing a punch that is ready to deliver new chapters that take us where we have never been before ( Startrek theme song plays here) to boldly go…..
Let’s use this energy for manifesting a higher love on the planet and may we all enjoy this Holiday Season with open minds, open hearts and greater awareness.
Big Love,
Merrily

December 8 – 14, 2014

All times given are EST

 

Late this week  (around midnight on the 14th)  we meet up with the 6th Pluto/Uranus square, part of a series of 7 that started at the end of 2011 and finishes up in March of 2015. We are way past the tipping point with this huge pattern that is shifting the planet and transforming our lives in the deepest way.  So many of us have experienced huge shifts, lots of clearing, painful endings and difficult times of facing our worst fears. At the same time we are lightening up, leaving behind what no longer supports who we have become and many of us have become aware of toxic attachments and released them for greater freedom and fuller self expression.
I bring this up at the front of the week so we can all be aware that as the week builds, we may encounter another layer of what needs to be purged and transformed… so we all can live the higher vibrational, happier version of our lives.
I am still in Bali for 9 more days, too much beauty to even describe… but I will try later! I am posting pictures on Facebook if anyone cares to see :)  just search Merrily Garrett
Monday the 8th
It is a strong, introspective day as we awaken to Mercury (mind) and the Sun (Soul consciousness) forming a conjunction at 16 degrees Sagittarius. Enjoy the optimistic and far reaching clarity that can show up as you choose the high road of positive thinking.
The Cancer Moon and Pluto form a bridge around noon and then the Moon squares Uranus just 30 minutes later. This Lunar connection sets of the Pluto/Uranus square that is exact late Sunday, so pay attention to any patterns that come up around nurturing, family, safety, security and ask yourself…
1. Is this still something I want?
2. Who would I be without the pattern or the drama?
3. Am I willing to let it go?
4. If I stop resisting change, how good could it get?
Breaking through to new ground is a strong possibility if we choose it. With a Moon in Cancer, we can only get there if we give up taking things personally.
Jupiter turns retrograde  at 3:41 PM and this ruler of Sagittarius takes us on an inner journey, exploring new areas that we may not have encountered, because there was too much clutter blocking the way before. The next 4 months are about discovering new wisdom and greater inner freedom as a result of all the clearing.
Tuesday the 9th
The Moon is still in sensitive, intuitive Cancer until late tonight, so concerns about care taking, nurturing, women and family continue to be the focus. We have a subtle, positive connection between the moon and Jupiter at 7:50 AM that can make for a pleasant morning. Smile at your loved ones and see the light in their eyes.
Sentimentality may overtake out thinking and if we focus on being in the moment and give space for the future posibilites while staying out of the past… we will be equipped to make choices that are best for the new “now” we are living in. The Moon enters creative Leo at 10:15 PM and gregariousness and generosity overtake feelings of insecurity. Smile with your insides :)
Wednesday the 10th
The Leo Moon fires up the day and we will do best to stay in appreciation and gratitude and not look for acclaim and credit. Leo Moons love to celebrate and are highly playful, so see what you can come up with to increase the joy of self expression.
Venus enters Capricorn today and our hearts can become directly aligned with our true Source or Being. We can become more commited and determined when it comes to matters of the heart and all that we value. Money concerns get handled with a good dose of practicality that includes long range projections. Plans are being made over the next 4 weeks. Relationships will find deeper connections and some will choose to make their commitments official!
Thursday the 11th
It’s a sweet day ahead so get up and get going. Early this morning, Mars and Neptune bring opportunities for supporting loved ones with kindness, so take on an act of charity that warms the Soul. Later on, the Sagittarius Sun and the Leo Moon form a playful and expansive Trine that says: get excited… think big! Life is supposed to feel good!
The good vibes continue with a Lunar trine to Mercury at 5:41 PM and then another Lunar trine to Jupiter at 7:22 PM. Yes, many things in this world are falling apart (as they need to be for evolutionary changes) and at the same time, Really friends… these are good times, so don’t waste them. Speak the truth from your heart and let generosity and gratitude color your evening with pure pleasure!
Friday the 12th
Mercury in Sagittarius trines Jupiter in Leo today… more fun vibes! Our thinking is Big and expansive and adventure and playful agendas seem to draw our attention. We can have fun today planning holiday activites and sharing hopeful and optimistic ideas.
The Moon enters the feminine, earthy ground of Virgo at 10:20 AM and our ability to get grounded and handle important details increases. The Virgo Moon trines Venus mid afternoon and we can find satisfaction in handling the little details and working with precision and accuracy.
The Moon and Neptune form a bridge (opposition) at 8:29 PM, calling imagination to the forefront for high levels of intuitive creativity.  Let yourself dream and don’t get too hung up on trying to clearly see all the details. It’s a balance between getting it perfect and allowing the divinely inspired ideas to flow.
Saturday the 13th
Astrologically, it’s a quiet day so take advantage of it. Just handle what is in front of you with the best mindfulness and presence you can conjure up and flow moment to moment. rediscovery the place of power is in the “Now”.
Sunday the 14th
Its a Big Day and we are greeted in the morning with a lovely trine between the Sun and Jupiter… be prepared to feel happy, upbeat, full of confidence and generally awesome!
This is followed by a Venus/Neptune sextile that adds idealism to the mix and all this helps us along as we head for the Pluto/Uranus square around midnight.
The Moon moves into Libra at 11:05 PM and the sign of the mirrored self and peacemaker will help to ease any tensions we may feel. There is an opportunity here to discover how we project onto others what we do not want to see in ourselves. There is tremendous support for new discovery. Just watch out for self-rightious, “I am right and you are wrong” polarized conversations and dig for the real truth that is there for you to grow with and dive deeper into. Now is the time to stop living your life for approval and start living it for the truth of Love.

Weekly Weather for December 1- 7, 2014

All times given are EST

As I continue my journey on the other side of the world, the old saying “wherever you go, there you are” becomes more blatantly and hilariously clear. My perception is generating my experience and it’s an amazing one so far. It’s much easier to shift your perspective in the middle of unfamiliar surroundings and see through new lenses… but it can be done at home… from anywhere we are … if we just choose to. It’s a liberting week ahead and I encourage all of us to ride this wave to a new level of freedom and possibility.
After a pretty intense journey through the last few weeks, I am happy to share that the astrological energy for this week is upbeat and highly charged with positivity. We could all use a bit of a break and I would say this is the week to experience it. I am writing this a bit early as I don’t think I’ll have dependable internet where I am headed. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and that you were able to maintain shining your light through the family shenanigans.
The 1st day of December starts out nicely, as we have a Moon/Mercury trine in the Morning and a Moon/Sun trine around 12:30 PM. With the Moon in Aries, these fire trines are sparking enthusiastic communications and feelings of confidence and inspiration is catching.
There is a helpful sextile between Mars in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio at 2:00 PM, supporting practical actions for manifestations we have been clearing the way for. We can accomplish tasks and manage resources productively.
The energy takes a turn with a Moon/Pluto challenge at 5:13 PM, a Moon/Saturn agitation at 5:52 PM and a Moon/Uranus conjunction  at 6:13 PM. So… keep your cool and stick to the positive momentum you had earlier in the day. I think these later aspects are bringing opportunities for us to see where we stop ourselves with insecurities and judgements and if we allow it, Uranus can awaken us to a whole new level of higher mind.
At 6:15 AM, the Aries Moon trines Venus in Sagittarius, serving up some frisky love and powerful attraction. We add fuel to this passionate fire when the Moon trines Jupiter in Leo at 11:17 PM. Let your sense of joy and playfulness come up and out … we can celebrate Love with some authentic generosity and gratitude.
The evening can test our resolve to stay in our “happy place” when the Aries Moon joins in frictional aspects to Saturn and then Mars, starting at 8:11 PM. If you feel like someone is holding you back, choose to look at where you are doing that to yourself and ask yourself how can you shift it.
The Moon settled into stable Taurus just after midnight and the fiery energy over the last two days turns earthy and more grounded. Just before sunrise, Saturn (stability, boundaries) and Uranus (rebellion, awakening) hook up in an agitating way that can bring up issues that need to be resolved. This is one of those opportunities for us to get out in front of the day and set a positive tone that will be strong enough to stick.
Things can feel off balance most of the afternoon and with the Moon in Taurus craving comfort… the best way to find it will be to keep adjusting in the moment. We can find a supportive landing place at 9:47 PM when the Taurus Moon trines Pluto. Productive ideas that can bring positive change become clear.
It’s a very big day! We get a wave of positive aspects today that can really fire up the pleasure principle with inspiration and creativity. It starts with a favorable aspect between the Sagittarius Sun and Pluto in Capricorn at 6:48 AM. An elevated truth inspires changes that pave the way for the rest of the day.
A highlight of the week occurs at 2:11 PM as Venus (the planet of Love and what we value) trines Jupiter (the planet of expansion and good fortune) and good feelings abound. Love, romance, abundance and creativity can be celebrated. Do yourself and everyone you know a favor today… bask in happiness, generosity and gratitude.
The cup is most definitely full today as the uplifting aspects continue. The Sagittarius Sun trines Uranus in Aries and we can feel a new sense of freedom, liberation and awakening. Allow yourself to step outside of the normal confines of your life and see with new eyes that can inspire innovative and fresh choices . This is a time to envision what you want to do with your life… so take a look from the hawks view and see the possibilities you couldn’t see before.
Mars Moves into Aquarius ( learning to love Self unconditionally) at 6:57 PM encouraging unconventional actions that are geared towards solutions that are more humanitarian. Uranus (who was just trined by the Sun) is the ruler of Aquarius, so Mars is getting launched into this energy with a fiery beam of positive energy that is sure to bring new inventions and greater understandings of the power of Self Love and Acceptance.
The Moon moves into chatty Gemini just before sunrise and immediately trines Mars in Aquarius. Expect to be full of ideas and ready to get communications in high gear as the day progresses. A Moon Neptune square at 2:21 PM can dilute earlier clarity, but a subtle, positive aspect between Mercury, and Pluto at 4:45 PM can take our creative ideas past the drawing board and onto a successful trajectory.
At 10:44 PM Mercury trines Uranus, presenting opportunities for our intuition to reach new levels of clarity and accuracy. This is brilliant mental energy that can make it hard to go to sleep. Why not stay up a bit and see what you come up with! I think after the rough passage we had through Scorpio (digging deep and purging old patterns) we have cleared some space for new levels of creation and it’s now time to let the spark of ingenuity bring forth something fresh and new into our lives! There is a Full Moon tomorrow morning, so go to bed tonight dreaming  big.
At 7:27 AM we have a Full Moon in Gemini at 14 degrees. This Full Moon has positive aspects with Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter, and the North Node. This is a powerful Full Moon with a Grand Fire trine… so it is auspiciously fortunate as it builds off of yesterdays astrological climate. A word of caution: Chiron squares the Sun /Mercury /Ceres conjuction, along with the Moon… setting the stage for blunt communications to be either given or received hurtfully. Just be aware that everyone may be overly sensitive to how things are said and choose words with a dose of kindness. Nervous systems can be highly sensitive at this time so take it easy on the caffeine :)
 
The Moon moves into Cancer at 12:35 PM and then trines Neptune in Pisces at 9:52 PM, decidedly shifting the energy from mental to more emotional. Our focus turns to home and family and security. Make sure that any insecurities that could arise through out the day are not projected in a co-dependent fashion. This will enable us to ride the waters of the Cancer/Pisces trine with grace and reap the benefits of this highly intuitive energy as we head off into a restful night.
Big Love,
Merrily

November 24 – 30, 2014

All times given are EST

 

 

As many of you know, I am on the other side of the planet (currently on Nasu Lembongen just off of Bali in Indonesia) and your tomorrow is my today. Days of the week and time are very far from my current experience and my now is so rich and vivid that words could not do this experience justice. I am in the ocean every day for hours at a time, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. My Moon is in Pisces at the root of my chart and I feel at home in the ocean. I am being replenished :)
 Neptune and Chiron are direct now in the endless waters of Pisces, opening us all to the limitlessness of a new consciousness that is profoundly loving and heart centered. I am so grateful to be here with my beautiful Pisces daughter and her fantastic man. Gratitude heals and replenishes, boosts the immune system and decreases stress. Let this upcoming Thanksgiving Day be about new ways of experiencing the power of gratitude. The Sagittarius energy from this New Moon is like a launching pad for all the expansive energy Jupiter is wielding. What every we focus on increases…might as well focus on the good!
Monday the 24th
With the Moon still in Sagittarius, we are bound to still be feeling the adventurous wave of optimism from the passing Sagittarius New Moon. Use the morning to feel the inspiration and then when the Moon enters Capricorn at 11:32 AM, you can implement plans to get your new ideas off the ground.
The evening can get a bit off track after a day of high productivity…let things ride and regroup for needed focus tomorrow.
The morning takes a serious tone with a Moon/Pluto conjunction that can intensify and clarify issues about power and authority (parental/child patterns for one) ! shortly after, around 9:30 AM, the Capricorn Moon squares Uranus and freedom and rebellion issues arise. See where your buttons get pushed and if you can, just decide to move beyond them.
Mercury joins Saturn in Scorpio after 9 tonight, and delving deep into mental processes is apparent. This is a great time to do research of any kind and to investigate your intellectual lower mind patterns for more transformation. if thoughts create things, where are you allowing your thoughts to take you?
A Sextile between the Capricorn Moon and Saturn at 9:10 AM brings some grounded energy to the holiday buzz and by 10:30the Moon will sextile Mercury, adding to cooperative conversations and solutions.
We get a quirky aspect between Mercury and Uranus at 12:35 PM, so just be open to schedule changes and u expected shifts in the Holiday planning and stay committed to the bigger picture of Love and Gratitude… That’s what is going to count, when it’s all said and done!
The Moon enters Aquarius at 2:32 PM and a sense of community and open mindedness is accentuated. If you have been feeling the weight of Scorpio intensity, this day lets that ease up.
With a fire trine between Venus in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries at 7:23 PM,
the playful, adventurous posibilities increase with the Aquarius Moon adding to the possibilities of things “outside the box”.
The Sagittarius Sun squares Neptune in Pisces at 11:20 PM and this is a good time to look to the more spiritual aspects of your relationships with yourself and others. Dreams can be revealing in the night ahead :)
After so much Scorpio energy that can feel intense and confronting, Mercury moves into Sagittarius this evening and our mental focus begins to feel more optimistic and upbeat. For years, I have found it interesting that the pre-Christmas season was so full of Sagittarius energy, which is hopeful, optimistic and can go over the top with spending. Then just before Christmas the Sun’s energy shifts to conservative Capricorn and we can come to wonder why we felt we had to go so “Big” with the holiday extravagances!
Don’t let the semi-square between Saturn and Pluto that is exact today, overshadow your holiday spirit. Use this energy to see where you need to do some clearing of structures or relationships that are no longer supportive or healthy and focus on developing what works for you now.
The morning can feel upbeat and ready for action and it’s good to feed that energy flow and do your best to keep it going, because we run into some frictional patterns around lunchtime that can derail your happiness if you are not mindful.
 The Aquarius Moon will connect in a subtle way with a semi square to Pluto and then square Saturn and then form another semi square to Uranus…. All within two hours. so what to do? Observe old family patterns and the part you play in them. Notice where agitation starts and what triggers it. Be open to going more with the flow and stop trying to control situations and people! Finally, see how you can choose to not participate in conflicts and choose a brand new path that is not reactionary.
The Moon enters Pisces at 5:04 PM, introducing a softer tone to the evening. Just be willing to recognize any self sacrificing, victim hood approaches for what they are… Dis empowering and backward from where you want to go. Compassion and intuitive insights can alleviate tensions that may have built up. Be kind :)
Take it easy today and give yourself and everyone a break. We come to the 1st quarter square between the Sun and Moon and we get a chance to see where we want to go next, so take some time to regroup and ease up on the throttle a bit.
Tonight there is a cranky aspect between the Moon and Venus and self worth issues could arise. This is a great time to see how you can find validation from within and not look for it outside yourself.
Our morning is relatively quiet, just watch out for over eating the leftovers!
By the afternoon, the energy picks up and creative solutions stimulate actions that can feel reassuring.
The Moon enters Aries at 8:15 PM and fire replaces water…. Meaning we go from the emotionally sensitive water energy of Pisces to the fiery, awakening energy of Aries.
Be aware that late tonight, Mercury will square Neptune and communications could get fuzzy. Just don’t push for clarity and choose to allow your mind to show you the nebulous part of life for the rest of the night. Sleep well and pay attention to messages from your dreams when you wake up tomorrow.
Written on a mini iPad … So forgive any typos!
keep looking up!
Merrily
