Today Pluto, planet of unconscious psyche, of determination, of soul depths, turns to direct again, after a long retrograde motion since April 13, when we were all stuck on a stand-by
Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio, Water sign of a deep pond, challenging us to dive into its mud to find the Great Light of the Power of the Creative Mind. It takes courage, but the gift we discover at the bottom of the pond is immense.
Now, since 2010 Pluto is in Capricorn, which is much like a mountain, the Holy Mountain of Realization. What Pluto can teach us from this position is to learn how to create a channel inside of us, passing through the unconscious structures of social conditionings and wrong believes to get at our Inner Light, the Joy we all cherish inside.
The expression of this joy is pure creativity, allowing us to build up a better life, resembling to our dreams.
As Pluto is a slow planet, it will remain in Capricorn until 2023, alternating direct and retrograde motion (in this post in Italian you find details about this:
allowing us to advance in the process of inner exploration but also stopping us in order to root the acquired intuitions, so that everything is perfectly integrated.
This process is so slow because it is operating at a very deep level. To accelerate the discovery and the integration, we are asked to express our will to surrender in the process itself, with blind faith in God, as we cannot know what Pluto is going to bring forth, as it is working at an unconscious level. Yet you can be sure that its lessons are perfect for each and one of us, no matter what is your Zodiac sign, because slow planets have a planetary and not only an individual influence.   
Obviously, meditation is the best instrument we have to face Pluto's lessons, because while meditating our mind loses its power on us, and our heart intermingles with understanding and compassion.
This return to a direct motion will take away the burden from our shoulders, freeing our mind and its positive sense. We will optimistic and motivated again.
We have been working a lot to get our balance these last months, so it is time to relax and enjoy it.

Yesterday in the late hours the Moon entered Aries, where it will remain until tomorrow, September 21.
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and it indicates the answer to the archetypal question : Who am I?, thus leading us on a path of research for our real identity.
After the Full Moon in Pisces took us up to very high emotional levels, opening our soul to a very strong sensitiveness, it is possible that we now feel a little bit upside-down, and we need to go back with our feet on the ground, integrating in our everyday life what we have felt with such an intensity.
This Moon is reawakening an active research for a sense and for an identity, so that our life and its events may be aligned with our desires, with what we feel we deserve.
Furthermore the Moon is setting itself inside the Cross of Cardinal Signs (Uranus retrograde in Aries, Light invading our understanding, thus pushing us to action as we cannot stand any other personal unjustice. This sensation is reinforced by the Moon, stimulating us to find proper solutions; Jupiter in Cancer, wellness, material comforts, inner peace; Mercury in Libra, logic trying to calm us down to prevent false moves; Pluto still retrograde for a few hours in Capricorn, investing us with its cosmic bad humour - tomorrow Pluto gets to a direct motion again: we will feel at last free to be optimistic).
Please check here if your planets are in one of these signs, as this would mean that this dynamic will be particularly strong for you. Yet, starting from tomorrow, Life will look easier and softer (I will write about this later on):

From September 17 to 19 the Moon is travelling in Pisces, where it will get Full on 19. It will thus activate the axis Sun in Virgo - Moon in Pisces, from order to chaos, from separation to unity, from a microcosmos to a macrocosmos. A path leading us to a great state of inner peace and acceptance.
This Full Moon in a Water Sign opposed to the Sun in Earth sign is activating the process of birth of a new life. So if you are nourishing a new project, this is the right moment to make it real.
The Moon also opens up the gate to the next Equinox, the highest  point of energy balance, where every kind of vibration is equal to any other. We are then able to consciously enter a process of integration between our conscious and the unconscious emotions, opening up our eyes and heart to what requires love inside of us, to have access to a higher state of consciousness. 
Besides, the Moon in Pisces gets to a conjunction with Neptune and Chiron retrograde (the top level for the human consciousness, together with a sense of sacrifice because we feel how hard it is to get till there). The reflected light of the Moon enlights our way towards that wonderful target, speeding up our pace.
Time has come to take a look at our unconscious fears, trying to send them love. In fact we need not to fear anything, for the Moon is activating a strong communication with the Angelic World, always ready to answer to any of our requests, chasing away the human sense of cosmic loneliness.

From September 15 to 17 the Moon is in Aquarius, a visionary, revolutionary, anticonformistic sign, driven towards the future and the high spectrum of light.
Baba Bedi ( in his Aquarian Philosophy defined Uranus, ruler of this sign, as the planet symbolizing our psychic sensitiveness, the human ability of capturing the invisible.
This Moon is forming an important square aspect (inner tension) with Saturn in Scorpio (deep desires), pushing us first to focus on what is still lying inside of us unheard, to take it out and make it real. This part represents an important tool to get to our integrity.
As this is a very powerful Moon because it is almost full, it is able to take out a lot of our shadows (of which I wrote this morning in Italian:, that Saturn is tending to emphasize while travelling in the unconscious sea  of Scorpio.
If you have also felt surrounded by strange events today, I invite you to use the Ho'oponopono mantra (for details, where the affirmations FORGIVE ME, I'M SORRY, THANK YOU, I LOVE YOU have the power to clean up and to purify our own energies, thus helping the process brought by through this Moon.
If we really want to get to our integrity, it is also necessary to face what we don't love much nor love at all within us

This astrological week opens up with Venus, the planet representing love,  newly entered in Scorpio, Water sign, sharp-minded, passionate, jelous, sensitive, absurd but wondrous eighth Zodiac sign. Venus will remain in Scorpio till October, 07.
In this realm Venus cannot express its strength at full, as it rules Taurus, in opposition to Scorpio. Venus in Taurus is a delicate, loving and caring feeling, while in Scorpio it can stick to what is usually forbidden, thus igniting the research for weird and complicated situations.
Scorpio natives may fall in love with Love itself, feeling stuck in a passion out of any control. They may feel eager to become one with those who originate their feeling of belonging. Scorpio can experience an extraordinary intensity, out of the control of the mind, being totally into the role that the Comedy of Life brings forth.
Other signs fully involved in this transit are:
Taurus, that may feel shaken to the bones, but maybe will find a way to dive into life experiences less heavily, instead of sitting to observe, while the others live.
Leo, that is running the "risk" of falling in love with someone it would not even take a little look at before. There is a strange beastly instict waking up now: the hunter is making his/her way to the prey.
Aquarius, that is concerned because he/she is feeling they cannot control their life any longer. This is clearly not possible: it is necessary to realize how important it is to enter into the Flow of the events.
Then, Libra, the other sign ruled by Venus. The planet was there just until a few days ago. Our delicate Libra will start feeling a strange restlessness, and it may want to escape towards unknown adventures.
For all the other signs and for our earthly collective consciousness, Venus in Scorpio represents a drive to look at the deep emotional side of life. We are no longer satisfied living in the surface: love affairs, friendship, our job, we want to feel we really belong there, or it is very hard to go on.
This is a chance to investigate our soul to understand who we are and what we really need to feel good. Venus, that represents  at a symbolic level our Heart and all the relative issues, transiting in Scorpio, the power of Spiritual Transmutation, is taking us by the hand leading us along a more and more accurate path of self-definition, where we finally feel we have found an inner dimension we can call HOME.
Furthermore, Venus in Scorpio is forming a conjunction to Saturn. As Saturn in Scorpio has a great power to make our dreams come true, Venus is adding her sweet perfume of charm to this creative ability by surrounding us with its light of pure magic. This is particularly true for Capricorn and Aries, usually two pragmatic and logical signs. They will start seeing new landscapes, that could not be taken into consideration until now, as they have been both going through a very peculiar time since 2010/2011.
They represent two aspects of the same energy: Aries is a pioneer, opening up new tracks, while Capricorn is the result one reaches through tenacity and devotion. They are two antithetic vibrations but they are now linked together by two planets: Uranus, planet of Light in Aries, and Pluto, the unconscious, in Capricorn. The power of this antithesis will allow Aries and Capricorn to reach for unexpected results in these next days.
Venus/Saturn conjunction is also reinforcing the mythic planet Trine in Water signs (for details, pls see: - it is written in Italian, but there is a very effective translation service).
Now it is important to understand the following: the three Water signs represent the Whole human emotional world at different levels. Since last June, we all have been called by this Trine (Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, Neptune retrograde in Pisces) to live according to our own truth, thus getting rid of masks and fake feelings. Those who are not used to face the truth of their own emotions may feel very angry, for they cannot recognize the changing outside world any longer. It would be better to stay still and observe inside what needs healing and care.
People belonging to Water signs may have it easier to deal with this process: Cancer is running towards a wonderful state of self-sufficiency, using they innate creative power in a positive and steady way, also giving birth to a new kind of sparkling life, after sleeping all last year long.
Pisces possess this wonderful gifr of always finding a reason to dream and lastly dreaming is an instrument they can use to find themselves. If life seems to be too tough, you just dream. This is no escape, but a way to find a deep nourishment for your hungry Soul looking for Magic.
As a consequence Virgo, in opposition to Pisces, can learn how to let control go. Any "freaky" Virgo needs to let it go: life is not fighting or holding on but experience and learning.
Sagittarius and Gemini are overwhelmed with thousands of requests from the outside world, but they can both deal with them, as they are very communicative and self-centered. In any case, if you feel tension, just smile, and tension will be relieved.

From September 13, early afternoon, to 15, early afternoon (Central Europe time), the Moon is in Capricorn.
Its primary characteristic is to enlight our inner power, because Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, our Self, the deep Sense of Identity, the spinal chord elevating us from the ground, the path leading to spiritual awakening, drifting away from basic human insticts.
We feel then pushed to seld-discipline, to get rid of bad habits, choosing to clean up our body and mind.
Besides, a very important fact is that this Moon is forming an aspect of conjuction with Pluto, our unconscious, in Capricorn as well, retrograde. The Moon also represents a deep inner state, so that both astral bodies give light to our hidden emotions related to past events (Pluto retrograde), asking to be processed and understood. These are the usual wrong mechanisms we regularly pass through, when one wonders why he is always going through the same old mess.
Humbly observing ourselves with a honest heart, we can see and understand the reason why. Please consider that the mystic union between the Moon and Pluto has a great evolutionary power, because they both relate to our Soul's experiences. Furthermore, they are strongly activated by the square aspect (inner tension) of Uranus retrograde in Aries, the planet of Lighr in a Fire sign. Uranus will shout in our inner ears until we accomplish the task of looking at those mechanisms very closely.
Three days' time (so long the Moon remains in Capricorn, as written above), is a very short period. But it nevertheless gives us the chance to take a deep look at what is unbalanced inside of us, the same old patterns. The solution will take form inside and the answer will come out when the Moon enters Aries, next weekend, getting close to Uranus. These two lights, one reflected and the other electric, will join together thus emanating a ray that will be captured by our sixth sense. This will be the moment when we are blessed with the right intuitions, and the answer is there!

venerdì 13 settembre 2013



From September 11 to 13 Settembre 2013 Moon travels in Sagittarius, Fire sign of the last Zodiac group of four, the signs of Absolute.
Sagittarius is a sign of research: Truth, Deep Sense of Existence, Path to our own Divinity, Sense of Identification with a Spiritual Mission emerging from within.
The Moon is bringing a very female and thus important  nuance to Sagittarius, incarnating the Sacred Principle of the Feminine, like the glance God Father Mother launches on everything surrounding Him/Her, as a natural development of His/Her Ray of Love.
When the Moon travels in Sagittarius we have the chance to get in touch  with the deep core of our feminine side, if we are women. If you are a man, you will understand how important were the lessons you received through the relationship to your feminine world, represented by your mother, daughter/s, sister/s, wife/ves, lovers, and so on.
Time has come to acknowledge the true role of this Half of Heaven, as the Eastern people call us.
All through human history the Sacred Feminine was adored but all tortured and murdered because it was too powerful and scary for the masculine orthodox monotheist world.
And now these last three days underline this dynamic by the square formed by the Crescent Moon in Sagittarius to the Sun in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces (three quarters of the Cross of Mobile Signs). The Eternal Sacred Feminine is requiring its own place between the Rational Logic of our Culture (Sun in Virgo) and the established religious systems (Neptune in Pisces).
We women should now acknowledge our own worth as carriers of Peace and Acceptance, of Motherliness towards Life itself and keepers of the Great Secret of Life (the ability to help the development of another human being - in a physical and metaphysical sense).
Feel the Mystic Channel of Life opening inside of you, illuminating your physical and energetic bodies, radiating through your physic body, soul and spirit and back. This is our power and we thus get in touch with our Essence. AND SO WE ARE!  
In the link here under you can check which one of your planets are in Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces, for this call is for you:

Have a wonderful Moon and pls come back in the next days for the Moon in Capricorn!

Let us take a look at this wonderful Crescent Moon in Scorpio:
first of all, Scorpio is a Water Sign, that is the emotional world. These kind of emotions stem from a deep need of being part an undivisible unity, when two souls become one. It is an absolute call for belonging, it is the birth of a microscopic circle formed by two beings living for each other and within each other.
The Moon represents our intimate part, no matter what gender we live in. When it travels in this sign, it lights up this process that fills us up with strong emotions.
We feel the boundaries of simply surviving, we want to go deep into love and belonging with all of ourselves. Scorpio wants it all or nothing.
This sign is ruled by Pluto, representing the unconscious, thus the emotions coming to the surface in these past few days cannot be controlled as they are unknown. We feel so restless that only our lover's warm embrace can soothe us.
Let us now consider a deeper sense in this planetary aspect, for it underlines how necessary it is to integrate our dark side, that is, inner emotions we did not want to deal with up to now. We are not asked to open up the door on a sorrowful past, but to open up our heart to everything we feel it is coming up, quietly observing as this passes by in front of our eyes, as if we were watching a movie.
Maybe we feel like crying, or feel disgusted, but we accept the plot of this movie, as this will show us what we have not understood yet. This acceptance allows us to get in touch with a part of us that until now was considered as a menace to keep under control. Now that we allowed the light to get inside of us, we can feel tenderness and forgiveness. And most of all we can feel that sense of belonging, that we have never felt in anybody's arms.
In the link here under you can check which one of your planets are in Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, for this call is for you:
Have a nice Moon and pls come back in the next days for the Moon in Sagittarius!

lunedì 9 settembre 2013


A new astrological week has just begun! The Moon is Crescent and in Libra, where It radiates a feeling of delicacy, of being undertoned, of research for Beauty in Life. This is a calm Moon, even if It creates a strong aspect full of tensions with Uranus retrograde in Aries and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn (do you remember? like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but not being able to come out yet?). This is how the Cross of Cardinal Signs is stopping Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn (also those natives with Rising Sign, Moon, Venus, Mars in these signs - to verify your planet positions pls check here:
The feeling has not changed from last week, maybe it is even stronger, as we feel we really almost there, after all these difficult months. Yet it was a wonderful time to travel inside of us, getting to know infinite dimensions and beyond. From this point of view, we can difficulties in a much easier way. When life stops us from moving outside, it wants to teach us to move inside, as this is the best way to root all the changes we are all going thru. Please be patient for another while, because time to start has almost come! 
Finally, between today and Tuesday 10, the Moon moves into Scorpio, reaching Saturn. We get more energy, we feel more determined in fighting for our goals, even if we want to look for silence, only meeting people we really love. We need to be with brothers and sisters who share our path, because this is the real nourishment for our Soul!
Until Wednesday 11 the Moon is staying in Scorpio. Taurus, Leo and Aquarius will not feel so much at ease. They will all have to face the truth of the way they are walking on. This is the chance to take the challenge to face the Unknown, as this always hides the most wonderful treasures. Just take the courage to leave your little mind for a very short time, to get a glimpse of what is lying outside your window and see if it is worth!
On Wednesday 10, Mercury enters Libra, yet its intectual influence helps us to regain a certain control.
Then, on Thurday 12 Moon enters Sagittarius and Venus Scorpio. As you can see, this week is full of different nuances, no sign remains untouched. Everyone will have to deal with new "guests", on a phisycal and emotional level. But as I always say, let us open to novelty and surprises.
Moon in Sagittarius is making Virgo and Pisces freak. It is a chaotic Moon, but in a positive sense. It brings Sagittarius a lot of chances to finally reach for long held back goals.
Virgo is already suffering for the long opposition to Neptune. This would be good to learn how to radically change its way of being, like integrating a softer aspect in itself, less crytical and pragmatic. It would be like the flourishing of an unknown and wide universe, where to use Virgo's innate sense of order with harmony. This is possible only if Virgo decides to stop fighting against obstacles, seeing them like signs to change track.
Pisces get nervous because Sagittarius' strength forces them to abandon their contemplative way of living to mingle in everyday life, but sometimes you just have to!
Gemini, with this Moon in opposition, would better prepare a suitcase and leave their homes. This is a travelling Moon!

Venus in Scorpio (on september 12) reaches Saturn, and deep feelings are put into evidence, like the urge of finding our Twin Soul. Keep your eyes open, all of you, as this can really happen!

Finally, on Saturday 14, Moon enters Capricorn, next to Pluto, still reinforcing the Cross of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Since 2010 Pluto is pushing us to let our inner light flow free outside and the Moon is also spotting this process. Dear natives (to whom I also belong!) please use these days to close your eyes and travel within. Your inner point of view will show you the solution and this is good also for every other sign!
This week the Moon's Travel from Libra to Capricorn touches different human areas, such as relationships, to be considered like a research of harmony between two people (Libra), requiring a deep soul merging (Scorpio) to get to the Absolute, to find a new ideal of life (Sagittarius), serving as the future foundations of real life (Capricorn).
Libra and Scorpio are social signs, where Man is willing to face the other. Sagittarius and Capricorn belong to the last 4 signs and find their identity in the Absolute. Here survival has no meaning, but the development of a spiritual way of thinking taking us near God and the real sense of Self. 
Have a nice week!
Stefania Ashtalan

martedì 3 settembre 2013



The astrological week starts with the Cross of the Cardinal Signs still lingering on our heads: on one side the Dark Moon in conjunction to Jupiter and to the Waning Moon in Cancer (wish to make real what we feel to be right for us, with the relative frustration of not being able to get to the point yet), on the other side Venus in Libra (wish to be seductive, of falling in love, to be charming, lightheartedness), while in the middle there is still Uranus retrograde in Aries with its close square to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn (to see the light at the end of the tunnel, still feeling trapped in a heavy situation).
No matter which is your birth sign, what this Cross produces inside of us is a sensation of being claustrofobically closed in the old situations we thought had gone. It is obvious that for Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn the sensation is even stronger. It results in an endless run back and forth, searching for some relief.
Please stop, for the secret here is to sit down and concentrate on the void of your Inner Silence, to let the Storm pass by, while you create through your imagination what you would like to have in your reality. 
And calm arrives soon. On Tuesday 03, Moon passes in Leo and meets Mars. They both give us the drive to put the solution we have found inside into action .
Venus is helping us in the whole process, as it tends to show us only the beauty of Life and it opens the door to creativity.
On Thursday 05, the New Moon in Virgo erases every tension, as it brings us back to rationality through its conjunction to the Sun and Mercury. Our mind is now sharp and accurate. We can see the obstacles taking us apart from our target very clearly (opposition of Neptune and Chiron retrograde in Pisces): the difficulty of unifying Heart and Mind.
When this opposed polarities join together, we can have the chance of feeling gifted by God with clarity and determination. We can take the right decisions, given by the intuitions of our Heart, while the Mind starts doing its job to make these decisions reality. At this point Life starts following us and sends us any necessary support.
Now, the axis formed by New Moon-Sun-Mercury in Virgo / Neptune and Chiron retrograde in Pisces is a grand way leading us to the Unity of Heart and Mind. Before falling asleep, connect yourselves to Earth and Heaven and visualize yourselves at the Center of bright road. On one side there is your Mind (Virgo), on the other your Heart (Pisces). Call on to these Light Poles, to receive their light inside of you. You then become a container for these opposed forces, point of unity and integration. Repeat this visualization also on Friday, if you wish.
Then on Saturday 07 the Moon passes on to Libra, where there is Venus as well, even if their conjuction is not so close (Moon at the first degrees, Venus in at 25°). In any case, both celestial bodies represent the Feminine Universe and will transform the newly acquired integration into a new sensitivity. 
The Moon's journey during this week, from Cancer to Libra, is related to the human archetypal path from our roots, family, home to social life. Individual ego, like a flower due to bloom, is slowly opening, as if teased by its curiosity to see what lies beyond (Cancer). It uses all its potentials to emerge (Leo), then it tries to understand the Golden Rules of Life (Virgo) in order to create any kind of relation, above all an intimate relation with someone similar (Libra).
At last, but not least!, the trine of Water Sign is still keeping its position (Jupiter and the Dark Moon in Cancer - Saturn in Scorpio - Neptune and Chiron retrograde in Pisces). Our world of emotions is under the spots. This aspect is there to teach us how to manage our emotions, as they create, together with the thoughts they produce, our own reality. I wrote about that in Italian - but there is a good translation service! -
Have a nice week all of you!
