The Lion and the Lamb - My Ascendant and Sun

This morning, as I was tidying my room, I came across a bookmark  which I had received back in my teens.  It has the painting 'The Lion and the Lamb' by Heather Cooper, reflecting the inner turmoil faced by women in business.

Suddenly, the image of the Lion hit me - that's my Leo Ascendant! And the water reflection, the lamb - that's my Pisces Sun! (OK, I know Pisces are the two fish but personality-wise, the lamb and Pisces are pretty similar in terms of being mild, caring and gentle.....plus the fact that I'm a goat in the Chinese zodiac:-).

My Pisces Sun, lurking in the depths of the 8th house, constantly feels unsafe to stand under the limelight - where Leo Ascendant wants to be.  The key is to find out what Pisces Sun is afraid of.  What's she fearful about?  Once that's dealt with, then the lion can roar proudly in front of an audience, without upsetting the two fish.

As the ascendant is the pathway to be trekked upon in order to reach the solar goal, it is important for me to appease the fears faced by my Sun in order to allow the Lion to safely prance on the stage.  

Through family constellation, I have uncovered many of the fears held within my system.  Slowly, I learned why I was scared to be seen as past memories resurfaced, relating to how unsafe I had felt when I allowed myself to shine in front of others.  Once those emotional entanglements were dealt with, I was able to move forward and bask under the light.

Sorry for holding you back for so long, Leo Ascendant, thank you for the patient wait as I battled with my internal ghosts....

Solar Eclipse in Pisces 2015



Solar eclipses are super new moons.  

New Moons mark the beginning of a lunar cycle.  It is a time for new beginnings; a fertile time to sow seeds of intention.  

Eclipses are like alarm clocks, waking you up from slumber.  Is there something hiding away at the back of your mind which needs to be pushed to the fore?  The first thing that comes to mind is likely to be IT!

The solar eclipse in Pisces on 20th March at 09:36 GMT occurs at the final degree of 29 degrees 27 minutes.  This is a pivotal time, as the luminaries are due to shift into the dynamic sign of Aries soon after.

My all time favourite archetypal astrologer Robert Ohotto, has succinctly described the underlying message brought about by this solar eclipse in Pisces, so I won't repeat it here myself.  I will tell you that this eclipse conjuncts my natal Mercury and I can already feel its energy prancing about in my mind (the effect can usually be felt +/- 7 days from the exact date of the eclipse).  From the final degrees of Pisces to the early degree of Aries, I come to understand the need to surrender to the Universe (Pisces) and then take action accordingly (Aries).  I've been deluding myself (Pisces) that if Plan A doesn't work out, I still have Plan B to fall back on.  This current eclipse is telling me otherwise - forget about Plan B because I never liked it anyway, let go of the illusion that it's something I still want to do.  Instead, go for (Aries) Plan A and if it doesn't turn out exactly the way I want it to go, then that's OK, because the Universe works in miraculous ways, there's bound to be a Plan C which might even be better than Plan A!

Where does this eclipse fall in your chart?

Keep on meeting... Scorpio

I still remember in my early days as an astrology student, I would dread meeting Scorpios.  Yes, I was influenced by the old school way of looking at this 8th sign of the zodiac - they are deep, dark and dangerous!  Looking back, it's not all wrong, as meeting those Scorpions merely was a projection of my disowned 8th house stellium......


Having undergone my Pluto transit to my Sun for the past 18 months (and still going!), I have learned to embrace the Scorpion qualities.  Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas mention in one of their CPA books (sorry, can't remember which one now...) that the lowest (or instinctive is a better word) way of expressing the Scorpion energy is by lashing out (i.e. revenge).  The next level of transformation is the eagle where the native is able to resist from the instinctive pull, raise himself up and view the situation from an elevated perspective - just like an eagle (i.e. not take things personally and get all emotionally tetchy from the slightest remark.  Take a step back and see the situation from a different viewpoint instead).  Then the final expression is that of a Phoenix where it rises from the ashes, leaving the old self behind and taking the renewed, matured self into the future (i.e. the native knows that s/he is well-equipped spiritually to deal with any life lessons head-on).

Some astrologers went as far as segregating the stages into seven - that's worth checking out.

So now, when I meet Scorpios, I immediately notice their profound wisdom behind the depths of their gazes.  I admire their incisive thinking and and insightful way of problem-solving.
