Hunka a hunka burnin’ Leo in this New Moon!



Yes! This New Moon in Leo kicks it off for the upcoming eclipse cycle. We are feeling fiery due to so much of the Lion’s heat in the atmosphere! Leo is lover energy so where do you want to plug yours in? Think it over and get to manifesting. First we must be grateful for what we have.
Next, let go of that which does not serve us and the greater.
Then, we can let it go to the fiery power of the Sun and allow it to incinerate this into the fertile soil of our hopes and wishes. 
Next we plant the seed of desire.
Finally we sit in stillness and allow, fully receiving, deeply grateful.
Mars is conjunct the event adding more fuel to the fire. Do be careful with things that burn easily and around fire of all sorts. Let us focus positive energy on our Mother Earth and all sentient beings to cool and sooth this planetary heatwave so that we can put the alchemical fires to good use. 
Keep track of your dreams these next few nights for Luna is sure to whisper a few cryptic messages to you from your psyche. Be sure to take notes and share them with me.
Here is the chart for today's New Moon.
The coming lunar eclipse on August, 7, the next Full Moon due in a fortnight, sets us up for the Total Solar Eclipse on August 29. 
Keep looking up; the stars are there to guide you!
Love, Ambika Devi

Scorpio Full Moon May 10, 2017 5:42:24 pm EDT

Full Moon in Scorpio can drag us under into a seemingly alternate universe where we can find ourselves in the realm of Pluto. You have choices to make. Can you burn off those last bits of what does not serve a higher purpose for all? Is it time to surrender and transform? Or, are you simply going to try to crumble after an exhausting fight?
Scorpio does not mess around. One of the superpowers of this sign is the ability to transform. Just when you think you might be getting ahead, another obstacle shows up that had not been in the picture moments ago. The lesson here is work with the energy and be a co-creator.
Scorpio is a shapeshifter which is perhaps why the sign is so misunderstood. The Scorpio energy is intensely creative and has the ability to help you with everything from inspiring your projects to fruition to removing everything that does not work, whether you can see it or not!
Look around and choose something to focus on, a project a relationship or a prayer. Now light a candle and burn some incense or smolder some herbs. Being a Scorpio I choose patchouli. This sign appreciates everything from earthy gums and resins like myrrh and frankincense to sweet floral high notes including Ylang Ylang and Jasmine and it is no wonder my vines are in full bloom now!
This is a great lunation for initiation, purification, transformation, letting go of past pain, and spiritual rebirth. May your dreams unravel the mysteries of your journeys during this fortnight. For your information a fortnight is the period of days between a Full Moon and the next New Moon which equal 14.77 earth time days.

Catch the Lovers in the act!

A sky-dance is happening between the ancient lovers Venus and Mars with Diana, the Maiden aspect of the Moon looking on.
 If you have not been looking at Venus each and every evening then tonight is the night to begin! A few weeks ago they looked like this:
These bodies are close to us now and showing bright and big in the sky. This evening, when the sun goes down, step outside and look southwest slightly by west.  There you can see the crescent Moon approaching Venus and Mars.
 Tomorrow evening on January 31, 2017 we can see a beautiful sunset conjunction.

Try to catch them before the sky fades to black.  A conjunction of bright planets framed by twilight blue is especially lovely!

The ancient story goes like this:
Venus, a beautiful and attractive goddess was married to Vulcan the God of the Forge. He was married more to his work and was less than desirable lover.
He knew his wife often found her way into the arms of her viral lover, Mars, and so he decided to catch them in the act. Vulcan forged a net of gold chains and told Venus he was going on a trip to Lemnos.  He then hid in the rafters of their home and waited. As he anticipated, Venus summoned her lover to join her. Outraged, Vulcan called to the Gods on Mount Olympus to come and witness the infidelity. Vulcan then trapped the lovers in his golden net.
The female Goddesses refused to chastise Venus. The Gods, just gawked. mercury told Apollo that he would gladly change places with Mars. Later he would have the opportunity and the result would be the hermaphrodite. Finally at the insistence of Neptune, the chains of love were released.
Interesting fact: The astronomy of this story is playing out exactly right now and tomorrow evening!
Notice how on the Sky Map Neptune is so close!

Where this is taking place in transit to your natal chart is of the utmost importance!

Contact me to set up your Astrological consultation.

Now, run outside and gaze up!

A postscript from Ambika.

Last evening I took my own advice and after a sunset meditation, went outside to bask in the energy of these planets. Wanting to add another image I snapped on and though the Moon was a lovely crescent, my camera saw more of an orb. I chose this one as I am drawn to the unusual texture in Venus as well. Mars is there very fain and though Neptune is present, we are unable to see him.
It amazes me how the characters in this story are present in our evening sky! 
If you are wondering where Vulcan is, he can be found near the setting Sun opposite this show!

Go on back outside!
