SUPERMOON IN CAPRICORN,JULY 12, 2014

Beloveds, NASA is calling this Full Moon "SuperMoon", the 1st of 3 scheduled to happen in 2014.  The next one will be on August 10th and the last one will be on September 9th.  They call it a SuperMoon because it's closer to the earth due to the shape of it's orbit.

SUPERMOONS

If you look up in the sky you'll see that this "SuperMoon" appears to be bigger than the last one.  In fact in this part of the country (Poconos) the Moon is quite beautiful and it won't be completely full until tomorrow.
So what does it mean that the Moon is closer to the earth or Perigee?  Well, it means that we're getting the magnetic pull more intensely, especially  people born in the signs that are directly affected....i.e. Cancerians will be feeling the opposition, Aries people and Libra people will be getting the square, and Capricorns will be more personally affected because it's in their sign.  Since I have planets in Libra, Cancer, the South Node in Aries...you can just about figure out that I'm feeling this SuperMoon more personally.  As I've told you before, sensitive people "get it" way before it happens so this week has been a trip.  Not only was my dream state effected by "weird" dreams, but one of my children sent out a sos ... which means coming into NYC this weekend.  Today I woke up with the news that a good friend's brother was brutally murdered in Brooklyn (another funeral).  While I was deeply saddened by this terrible news, I was selfishly thinking "Geez! I just said I didn't want to go to any more funerals this year".  Just buried my daughter in law last week and still doing the spiritual work to help my son and grandchildren handle the grief.  Plus, I had to cancel a speaking engagement which freed me up to speak at the funeral.  So this Supermoon has me on edge as I had to cancel another engagement made months ago to perform at a friend's memorial for his mother.  What in the world is going on...well, we're in the shift and "shift happens". Being a "no show" for events I would have liked to attend is not my favorite thing to do.  But at times like these we have to set priorities and go where we're needed the most.  

SUPERMOON IN NEW YORK & THE US

New York City is a Capricorn, with Aries Moon and Libra Rising.  While there always seems to be some violence going on in The Big Apple, I'm sure this SuperMoon in Capricorn will have this city rocking and rolling with surprising and sadly violent events.  When I drove in last week I could feel the energy just as I crossed the George Washington Bridge and had to kinda force my car into the right lane to make the turn. People drive faster in the city and it seems that no one wants to give anyone a break...you could feel the "gotta go, gotta go" energy as cars sped up after going through the toll.  I was more than happy to turn the driving over to one daughter who loves to speed. She's a New Yorker, loves the city and gets huffy with me  as I sit back and criticize the other drivers..."where's he going?" "why didn't she turn her signal on?" "watch out for that biker!" "don't hit that man!"  I don't know if living up here in the mountains is making me better or worse. I'm used to people paying attention to my signal when I need to change lanes...oh well!!! And the news also makes me jumpy...with people fighting and bombing each other...when will it stop?  Then the fact that the bigots haven't ever embraced the president, plus they're trying to sue him, when we know they really want to impeach him...such stuff and nonsense. No matter what he does they're going to complain and we all know why.  Then there's the immigrant children...what a shame. Only those who follow the history know why these children are risking their lives to flee their countries. Like Malcolm once said "the chickens are coming home to roost."  "Send them back to where they came from" says the son of degenerates who stole this country from the indigenous peoples who were living here first.  The nerve of this bleary eyed supremacist who stupidly believes he's better than others.  Turn it off, my spirit says, don't get locked up into their negativity...but really...who do they think they are?  These are children we're talking about. Is there no love for innocent children?  Turn it off or your blood pressure will spike, says my protective angel.  So I turned it off.  

LEBRON & THE SUPERMOON

Lebron James, the best basketball player in history (my opinion) is a Capricorn, so with the SuperMoon in Capricorn he made an announcement that he's returning home to Cleveland.  Good for him. He is an astute businessman (Capricorn) , so his ability to make money is a given.  Most of all he has made decisions based on what's good for him. Fans who not too long ago burned his t-shirts, are buying new t-shirts saying "welcome home".  I love it when a descendant of slaves who worked for nothing, turns the tables and makes their system work for him.  What I don't know is how much of that money Lebron is sharing with people in need...not just for tax purposes, but for the sole purpose of paying it forward.  He has to know that his enemies are busy working on bringing him down, so I'm wishing him love and Light and protection from the Most High.  

And I"m  wishing all of you, Love & Light, and protection from the Most High.  SuperMoon in Capricorn will be a weekend of many events and gatherings, so keep it peaceful, slow your roll, don't jump to conclusions and always do your best to spread the love around.  Love & Light, Ayesha

MERCURY GOES DIRECT - TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014

Wondering if I'm the only one whose experiencing high highs and low lows?  Well that's the way it's been for me for over a year now and it seems there's no end to the cosmic chaos.  We could say the "storms" are caused by Pluto in Capricorn squaring Uranus in Aries and opposed by Mars in Libra which also squares Pluto and Jupiter in Cancer?  But then that's astrology speak that is only understood by other astrologers.  Or we could say that the shift is in full effect and it's time for all of us to move it up to a higher level, if we can. 

MERCURY'S INFLUENCE
 
 
So while things are shifting cosmically, in comes Mercury, planet of communications which has been retrograding for the past 3 weeks. It appears that no matter what I say, or write...it's misunderstood or worse, it's misinterpreted.  I think it might be better to just use sign language, or better to just stay silent and visualize outcomes, rather then try to force solutions.  My grandmother would say "I'll just pray on it." Mercury is going direct now and we won't have another retrograde Mercury until October, 2014.  Since Mercury traditionally goes retrograde about 3 or 4 times a year, you'd think we'd learn to just flow through it and bypass the confusion that seems to appear in our lives during these periods.  For one thing, if we can "see" it coming on a regular basis we could get our ducks in a row and be prepared for it.  This last period was a doozy, for me. Firstly, my computer died and I lost all my files. Then my car almost died because of a lack of oil (my bad). By the time the oil light came on it was almost too late, but a savvy mechanic kept the engine from seizing and saved the day.  He gave me a stern warning not to ever let this happen again.  Then my washer flooded the livingroom and far worse, my daughter in law deceased which threw my family into funeral mode again.  I totally dislike funerals, funeral parlors, gravesites, and the wailing and crying of the people who were left behind.  Why do we wait until someone dies to realize how much we appreciated their company? That's a rhetorical question, I know. I'm waiting to experience a funeral where someone gets up and tells the truth..."I never liked him, he had bad breath and a mean spirit, plus he cheated on his wife, beat the kids and kicked the dog".  Hmmm!  Or in the future a funeral where the deceased rises up during a flowery tribute and says "liar, liar, pants on fire, you never liked me and you made my life miserable".  At least that would be Truth in action instead of the way we deceive ourselves and others. The shift for me came when I had to cancel a speaking engagement in Harlem to be there for my son and grandchildren. Instead of speaking at one event I was called to comfort the grieving and speak at a funeral.  You want to make God laugh, just tell her your plans.  My daughter in law was a true warrior woman, who never missed a day at work (really) and who also raised three of her own children and five nieces and nephews while keeping a pristine clean house.  She loved to cook and feed people. Once she came for a visit because she needed some rest, but instead of resting the next morning and agreeing to go out for breakfast,  she got up and cooked a full breakfast of eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles and grits...geez! She was dearly loved and will always be missed.  That was my Mercury Retrograde period, and from what I'm hearing from others, this period wasn't an easy one.
But we came through it and there was Light at the end of the tunnel.  Light came for me via a good friend who bought me a new computer tower.  Thought he was just going to have the old tower fixed but instead he paid for a new one.  I am thankful for all the good friends and loving family in my life.
No matter what the circumstance or the condition, it's the people in my life who make the difference.
Thanks to Ron, Anna, Diane, Osayande, Sharonne, Coni, Funmi, Aiesha, Sekhmet, Mimi,  Herline, Ada and my 3 wonderful children. You held me up when I thought I was falling down. I love you all, unconditionally. Love, Light, Laughter & Joy, Ayesha

MERCURY RETROGRADE...JUNE 7, 2014

BELOVEDS...wish I had more information, but I'm using the computer at the public library...why, cause mine died two weeks ago.  This has been a grand adventure as it seems that everything I'm familiar with has  gone away.

LET'S BLAME IT ON SATURN

Blaming and shaming are great when you just don't have the energy to do an internal check...so let's blame all this stuff on Saturn in Scorpio, squaring my Sun/Mars/Pluto in Leo and opposing my Saturn/Jupiter/Uranus in Taurus.  Since Saturn, the Cosmic Creeper (smile) has been in Scorpio I've lost everything that was near and dear to me...my daughter, my apartment, my books, my personal space, and almost my sanity (laughing). It's gotten so crazy that I'm never surprised when something new pops up, like stolen jewelry, missing clothes, but in the end I'm going to sound like those old folks I used to know and say "well at least I have my health".

LET'S GET BACK TO MERCURY

Sorry I forgot my astrological calendar, so I'm not sure when it ends, but the Mercury Retrograde definitely starts on Saturday, June 7th, and it feels like it's already in process (for me). Since the usual cycle is about 3 weeks we'll figure that Saturn will go direct around the 20th or 21st.  The way my life is going or shifting it really doesn't matter to me as I'm taking it one day at a time, or one hour at a time. Mercury Retrograde is the time to get paperwork in order, to straighten out communications with others, do necessary repairs and to re-think decisions made in the past.  This cycle can also help us to make connections with people we haven't spoken to in a while.  

CONSCIOUS MIND/SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

Mercury represents the conscious mind, how we think, how we speak, how we write.  When it slows down it's orbit we need to slow down also, and think before we speak and most certainly before we put anything in writing (hahahahaha). So I'm writing this blog on the upcoming Mercury Retrograde period on a wacky computer in a public library in the Poconos.   Time is running out and I'm not so sure that I'll be able to get more time, so please excuse all mistakes, in spelling and grammar and give me a pass for making the effort to stay current with this blog (yay for me). That was my ego talking (laughing again and they're getting ready to put me out of here).  

FRENCH OPEN

The French Open has shown early signs of Retrograde Mercury, with all of the top players going down in the beginning (Venus & Serena). Usually when there's a competition or sports event that takes place during Mercury Retrograde, it seems the underdog wins.  While we all seem to be focused on the usual winners, out of the blue comes a player or a team that suddenly rises to the top.  I just say "may the best man and woman win" and detach from the outcome.  I used to get so sad when Serena would lose a match, then I started thinking about my bank account and her bank account and reality set in.  She may not be in the finals of the  French Open, but she doesn't have to worry about being able to afford a new computer, a new car, or paying the electric bill, the water bill, the rent (sorry for the digression but I think you get my point.  When Serena loses she can afford to get a nice massage, go to a fancy restaurant, buy a new dress and plan to win again next month. 

NBA/NHL
Seems all these sports events are happening at one time. Haven't had the time to keep up with the basketball contests, but just assume the Miami Heat is out front??? Don't watch Hockey, but did hear that there was a team that hasn't won for a  long time in contention...that's pre Mercury Retrograde energy happening. Again, keeping everything in perspective they're all millionaires. While money isn't everything, it sure can pave the way to some happy times. The religionists warn us not to put money before God and they tell us to be sure to give some away.  My teacher always said "seek ye first the kingdom and all else will follow".  What I know is money provides freedom that you don't have when you're broke.  Could have said it more elegantly but there's a strange woman looking at me...geez!  Not sure what's up with that, but I'm going to close now and hopefully get the chance to blog again.  Love & Light, Ayesha
