Capricorn New Moon 2016

New Moon in Capricorn offers us energy for what is real, tangible, and long-term. I see this as the true energy for a 'resolution'.

We've been shedding what no longer worked. Now the Moon sits right up against Pluto. Shedding is still in progress and there might be lingering pain or grieving. Also, the square to Uranus suggests there's still disruption around. Big letting go can't be done without ripples.
Hang in there. You are making a clear path for what is truer, and what will serve you better.

Mercury retrograde tells us that it's inner work (reflection and re-thinking) that will get you through this in your most soul truthful way.
The less you focus on how external things, people, or events, are affected, and more on how YOU are handling the letting go and it's repercussions, and what it means for YOUR purpose, the stronger your spiritual evolution.

Peace my friends.

Long-term tangible goals and shifts.... or, risk of limitations, false starts.... happen in specific areas according to your chart.
I prefer to check by Ascendant. For an accurate reading, you need to check your exact time of birth, it can shift the planets into the next or previous House.

Aries Asc - reputation, social standing, career.
Taurus Asc - ideals, life purpose.
Gemini Asc - commitments, shared resources.
Cancer Asc - relationships.
Leo Asc - job, daily tasks, health.
Virgo Asc - romance, children, creative projects.
Libra Asc - home, family, belonging.
Scorpio Asc - communications, immediate environment and people.
Sagittarius Asc - values, income, possessions.
Capricorn Asc - self-image, renewed Self.
Aquarius Asc - spiritual connection, boundaries, recharging, soul-searching.
Pisces Asc - wishes, hopes, groups, community.

thinking free

(taking a stroll)

Freedom to think as far as we can reach is a beautiful thing. Sometimes we need to look close and keep our heads in the details, but once in a while, we also need to dream and fill our mindscapes with grand visions. This is the stuff that sends us into the stratosphere of our highest callings.

The funny thing about life, is that it's never one or the other of anything.

The Mister is a rock-star when it comes to Grand Visions, but stumbles over the branches of those pesky details. Like the centaur, he leaps and gallops into vast spaces of freedom. In turn, sometimes having to re-do, re-think, or re-work it all anyway.

My Mercury (how we think) is in detail-orientated Virgo, so I can't help but look down at the branches - and how they are arranged, and how many there are, and what obstacles they could pose, and solutions.... yes, it can become paralysing, or anxiety-inducing spiralled-thinking, or over-critical.

When he and I work together, you see the chaff of friction for a moment, and then, the way that the collision of stardust makes stars.

Right now, the planet of thought and communication is in vision-seeking Sagittarius. We'll be thinking grand, talking big talk, and imagining all sorts of possibilities. We're thinking enthusiastically, and even hoping against hope.

I wish for you limitless horizons.
Just don't forget to look down once in a while. Okay?

{boho} Bohemian light (ii)

Bohemian d├ęcor needn't be cluttered, rich, or dark colours at all. It's an aesthetic of uniqueness and freedom first.

After the first collection of bohemian light interiors over here, I thought I would share some more finds.
