I’m sat here with lots of whirling thoughts in my head.. The moon is in Cancer today conjunct my Jupiter in my third house. (any astrology buffs out there know what that means) In plainer terms it means I’m moved to communicate (commune) deeply (Cancer is a water sign associated with feelings). The conjunction of Jupiter only heightens those feelings and expands them. The third house is to do with your local environment and communication. It’s easy for me to write stuff so all this blogging I do comes pretty naturally for me. I work in fits and starts and always on inspiration. I prefer not to force it as it just doesn’t feel good.

The name Easter is derived from the Saxon Eostre (Eastre) The Ancient Saxons in Northern Europe worshipped the Goddess Osetre at the time of The Spring Equinox. The Goddess represents the sunrise, Spring-time fertility and the renewal of life.

Got the inspiration for this post from riding my bike the other day, it’s been quite chilly here and for some reason that I don’t quite understand I’ve always like my head covered when it’s cold –  I love hats, all kind of hats, berets are my favourite (note to self – find a shop that sells decent ones.) Maybe my mother instilled this into me when I was little as Scottish winters were sometimes quite fierce.

Interconnectedness with everything and being at peace and balanced within

This for me (both the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes (23rd Sept this year)) has always been a pivotal time of the year as the Sun enters Libra.  The day and night are the same and in balance, before the seasons change again from Summer to Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and from Winter to Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

This Summer/Autumn has been a challenging yet exciting and sometimes sad time for me, there have been many unforseen changes and adjustments, over the last few months. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn squaring Saturn in Libra and now the Sun is joining them (for a little while.) There has been a lot of soul searching , tough decisions and  lots of airy activity going on. While the Sun was still in Virgo, lots of planning, attention to detail and sheer hard work had to be done…and it was!

Crescent Moon in Gemini tonight ~ April 17th 2010

 

I love the moon and can gaze at it a lot at its different stages through the new moon back to the dark moon

It has always fascinated me since I was a child and since I started looking at it in more depth through the symbolism of astrology and Goddess imagery, it becomes more intriguing.

There was a solar eclipse on the morning of May 20th I was born during the darkness at 4am the following morning, though my mother said I never wanted to be born, they literally pulled me out with forceps. I was born with long black hair, a black eye (from the forceps) and a yellow face (from jaundice)… beautiful I was – stubborn Taurean

I have a lot of planets & asteroids in Taurus ( Juno, Ceres, Mercury, Mars, North Node and my Sun) My moon in Gemini (hence all the blogging and general banter :D) though Mercury is also going through Taurus at the moment in my 1st house of self-expression… so blog away girly!

I definitely feel the different phases of the moon, I am quite wild and hyper during the full moon and I’m quieter and very introspective when the moon is waning and especially around the dark moon, that’s my favourite time of the month as it’s very magical.

I look up at the moon to be close to you

Knowing you are always with me

Though I know nothing, I feel you close to my heart

I miss our love; our Moon in Gemini banter

Nothing is lost..ever
