In astrology, Chiron is called the Wounded Healer, which means it rules our wounds and healing. It shows where we can have great wounds, but also how we can greatly heal.
The Lunar Nodes are the points in the Moon's orbit where the Moon crosses the ecliptic. There are two Lunar Nodes, a North Node and a South Node, and they exactly oppose one another.
The North Node connects to our potential, our purpose, and our greatest fulfillment in life, but is new, unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and something we have to learn.
The South Node connects to our past, our baggage, the emotional crutches we fall back to during times of stress and upset, but is comfortable and familiar so we keep going back and have to learn to release the crutches.

Transit Chiron Conjunct the North Node:
So what happens when transit Chiron conjunct one of your Lunar Nodes? We'll start with the North Node. When transit Chiron is conjunct your natal North Node, this can be an excellent time for healing and personal growth. Not only that, but you can benefit from it in so many ways, and the more you heal and grow, the more you can feel like you're on the right path and living your best life.
The issue, of course, is that this may be super uncomfortable at first. You may avoid it completely because of the discomfort. It may shine a light on issues you don't want to face, don't feel ready to deal with. It might scare you.
You have to push through that. At some point, the discomfort and worry and fear goes away as you become more comfortable and experience some of the healing and growth. You can keep going forward, and embrace more growth.
Chiron can link to a quiet personal power within, the kind of power that comes from feeling more whole and more like yourself rather than anything external, loud, or from others. As you heal and grow, you get more of that quiet power, and you can keep going to find more.
The issues that you need to work on will depend on the sign and house location of your natal North Node, as well as any planets in your North Node sign. Currently, Chiron is in Aries until 2027, so you may experience this aspect at some point in the next 5 years unless your North Node is early in Aries.
Aries North Nodes have to learn to be independent and autonomous, to be assertive and take initiative, and to embrace your true face and inner fire. Any issues around these things may be worked on with Chiron in Aries conjunct your North Node. If you've rejected who you are, if you've leaned too heavily on others, if you're been timid and avoidant, this would be the time to address it.
Transit Chiron Conjunct the South Node:
Now to transit Chiron conjunct your natal South Node. During this transit, this is also a great period for healing, however you may be more focused on the past than the future. You can feel the weight of your baggage, from your early life, past life, or karmic, but you may be so used to it that you try to force yourself to just keep going with it. You may reach a point where you just can't anymore, a breaking point where you have to say, enough is enough.
We get too complacent with the South Node, too used to the way things are, even when they're terrible, so Chiron transiting the South Node kicks up all the bad things that you just got used to and accepted but shouldn't. Just because that's the way it's always been or the way it's been for a long time doesn't mean you have to resign yourself to it staying that way if it's not healthy for you.
It can be difficult to do though. There can be fear associated with this transit too, just like with the North Node. With Chiron on the North Node, it's more fear of the unknown, while Chiron on the South Node is more fear of letting go. You may think you don't know who you are or what your purpose is without this baggage, these issues, this person, this circumstance. You're too tied up and you don't want to let it go, but Chiron is giving you a way out.
You have to face the issues, face the baggage, and be willing to let it go. This can be a major process, but it can lead to deep, profound changes. This may not be super obvious externally, on the outside, but within, you can change in a huge way. The potential is for you to clear out that baggage so you're moving forward more freely, without all that weight.
The issues that you need to work on will depend on the sign and house location of your natal South Node, as well as any planets in your South Node sign. As noted, currently Chiron is in Aries until 2027, so you may experience this aspect at some point in the next 5 years unless your South Node is early in Aries.
Aries South Nodes are used to doing their own thing, going their own way, and relying on themselves for everything. This means you have to learn how to ask for help and rely on others in this life. You may put way too much on yourself, and end up in bad situations because you don't trust anyone enough to let them help you. You've likely been burned before, and fear it again. Baggage you may need to address can center around this.

Ceres is a dwarf planet that rules nourishment and support in astrology. A retrograde occurs when a planet or body appears to be moving backward through the Zodiac from our view here on Earth.
When Ceres is retrograde, we can struggle with having the nourishment and support we need, having the resources we need or using resources we have well, and may experience lack in some way. We have to work through issues around lack, and find new ways of being abundant.
P.S. Make sure you're signed up for the free monthly worksheet so you can keep track of Ceres and the other planets every month!

New & Full Moons & Eclipses to Natal Ceres
The month of September 2022 comes with a full moon in emotional Pisces and a new moon in mediating Libra, and both tie into the Mercury retrograde. What does this mean for us
Make sure you're signed up for the monthly worksheet so you can keep track of astrological events like new and full moons every month!
What is a New Moon?
A new moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact same position in the Zodiac (called a conjunction). New moons are related to beginnings, have high energy, and are enthusiastic.
What is a Full Moon?
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact opposite positions in the Zodiac (called an opposition). Full moons are related to endings, culminations, and are emotional energy.
Full Moon in Pisces: September 10th 2022 (5:56AM ET/2:56AM PT)
Pisces is an emotional water sign, and full moons bring a lot of emotional energy, so Pisces full moons can be times when we're much more sensitive and easily stirred. But, Pisces doesn't like to show it too much, so we may keep this to ourselves, even though we're actually really soft and need a gentle touch now.
Pisces is the sign of compassion and empathy, so we can strive to be sweeter with others, and try to be more understanding. We may try to be more helpful, especially with those who have difficulty helping themselves, but we need to be careful of being taken advantage of.
Pisces rules imagination, so if we need a healthy outlet for anything, creativity can be the winner. We can channel what we're feeling into creative projects and hobbies, and this can help soothe us emotionally.
Pisces is the very last Zodiac sign, while full moons rule endings, so we may see some big things come to an end, literally or figuratively.
This full moon occurs about 6 1/2 hours after Mercury retrograde begins in Libra, so this can amplify emotional energy at the start of this retrograde, and we can be extra sensitive. We need to take care of ourselves, and others. If we're stressed, we may be extra drained.
This full moon is sextile (positive aspect, two signs away, transit (moving) Uranus in Taurus, and this can help us to come together, to be more objective so we're not lost in our emotions, and we can focus on our dreams.
This full moon occurs at 17 degrees 41 minutes Pisces. The aspects to this full moon are:
Conjunction: 15 degrees 41 minutes - 19 degrees 41 minutes Pisces
Sextile: 15 degrees 41 minutes - 19 degrees 41 minutes Taurus or Capricorn
Square: 15 degrees 41 minutes - 19 degrees 41 minutes Gemini or Sagittarius
Trine: 15 degrees 41 minutes - 19 degrees 41 minutes Cancer or Scorpio
Opposition: 15 degrees 41 minutes - 19 degrees 41 minutes Virgo
New Moon in Libra: September 25th 2022 (5:55PM ET/2:55PM PT)
The new moon in Libra can help us work on coming together, and we can pursue opportunities that have us working with or for others. We can be more optimistic about connecting and our dealings with others.
We may enter into new partnerships, new relationships, and new commitments, and we can be enthusiastic in our negotiations and diplomacy. We can be more comfortable in one-on-one settings, and we can be more charming and engaging.
Libra is the sign of balance, so we can strive to find more balance, and this can help us be more decisive. We can feel confident if we feel balanced, and are surrounded by peace and harmony.
This new moon comes 2 days after Mercury retrograde exits Libra, so Libra energy has been off for a couple of weeks while the retrograde was in Libra. This new moon, coupled with the Sun and Venus entering Libra, may help us get on the right path quickly with whatever has gone off the rails in our relationships and partnerships.
The new moon is opposite transit Jupiter in Aries, and this can bring a lot of excess. We can go overboard in many ways, and we need to get some control over that. It can be easy to let things slide until they go too far, so we need to make sure we're being mindful.
This new moon occurs at 2 degrees 49 minutes Virgo. The aspects to this new moon are:
Conjunction: 0 degrees 49 minutes - 4 degrees 49 minutes Libra
Sextile: 0 degrees 49 minutes - 4 degrees 49 minutes Leo or Sagittarius
Square: 0 degrees 49 minutes - 4 degrees 49 minutes Cancer or Capricorn
Trine: 0 degrees 49 minutes - 4 degrees 49 minutes Gemini or Aquarius
Opposition: 0 degrees 49 minutes - 4 degrees 49 minutes Aries

Imagine that you have just received an astrology reading and you are told that you have a twelfth house activation going on. That alone can be hard news to deal with because the twelfth house in astrology is mysterious and is related to self-undoing. It is one of the toughest houses to work with but we are always better for it.
Oftentimes, when people get astrology readings, the main mission becomes how to apply the astrology. That’s what I want to focus on today: how do you best work with the twelfth house if that is your current astrology? Other astrological aspects that are included are Neptune and Pisces house transits.
Hypnosis: A Key Tool For a Twelfth House Transit
When there is a twelfth or Pisces house or Neptune transit, I teach my clients that hypnosis is one of the key tools to use. This ancient tool and healing modality is so effective because it operates with the most powerful part of our make-up: the wonderful subconscious mind, represented by the twelfth house in astrology.
It is a great disservice that we are not taught about the subconscious or unconscious mind because it is this part of the mind that controls what we allow or don’t allow in our lives. Just like that twelfth house, the subconscious mind is unseen and often a blind spot that creates multiple outcomes in our lives-good or bad.
But thanks to the recent Pisces activation, use of hypnosis is on the rise, which means that people have access to a modality that works on creating change, ending self-sabotage and releasing limiting beliefs and unprocessed emotions.
What are the Conscious Mind, the Subconscious and Critical Faculty?
Here’s a quick primer to help you understand the power of hypnosis:
We all have a conscious and a subconscious mind and a critical faculty.
It is important to note that the subconscious mind is unlimited, designed to protect you, keep you alive and thinks in pictures, sounds and feelings. A simple way of describing the unconscious mind is that it is a seven-year old child.
In contrast, the conscious mind, which uses the senses, is much more limited in awareness. Also, there is a filtering system set up to help keep your conscious mind from overloading.
What determines what your conscious mind can see is called the critical faculty, which is a gatekeeper. And what guides the critical faculty: the subconscious mind.
So if the unconscious mind is the ultimate determiner of what you experience, how do you get it to align with what you desire for your life? Hypnosis!
What is Hypnosis and How Does It Work?
Hypnosis, which is a natural state that we all go in and out of daily, bypasses the critical faculty, and allows suggestions to be made to the subconscious mind using pictures, sounds and feelings. It can be used to release limiting beliefs, stuck emotions and anything that creates problems in your life, thereby decreasing the chance for sabotage.
Additionally, hypnosis can be used to suggest empowering beliefs and get the unconscious mind onboard with your goals.
In the hypnotherapy world we say that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, so you can use hypnosis tracks or book sessions with a hypnotherapist. Both work and you feel refreshed afterwards. Hypnosis often feels like a getaway, just like the twelfth house requires, so it is a perfect remedy for those transits.
So be sure to get your hypnosis in with those twelfth and Pisces house and Neptune transits! It can help ease the harshness of the transit and lead to you feeling healthier and manifesting more of what you want deliberately.

As an energy healer, my approach has always been to look at the stars as a map that we can follow to heal ourselves. No matter what we see in our natal charts, we can lean on energy healing and a bit of psychology to help us get around issues.
Early on, this holistic view brought up a lot of questions. Where is the energy of the birth chart, is it in the physical body? How do we feel the effect of transits, and is there anything that we can do to soften the edge? And why were so many people focused on Mercury Retrograde? There are lots of planets that need integrating!
My answers to these questions are based on the 2-year healing course at the School of Intuition & Healing in London, as well as the natal charts of healing clients.
My feeling is that the energy of the birth chart is stored in the Aura and specifically in the transpersonal chakras, which take our attention beyond our individual lives, to the collective. These were covered in a previous post called Energy Healing, Chakras, and Planetary Magick, along with a guided meditation. You’ll find a summary below.
Let’s Reach for the Stars!
Before we reach for the stars, we need to ground ourselves. The Earth Star Chakra is situated about 12-18 inches below the feet, at the bottom of the Aura. It grounds us in Mother Nature’s energy and gives us an energetic escape valve that makes it easier to withstand the ups and downs that can be caused by planetary transits. The Earth Star Chakra comes alive with grounding meditations, crystal healing and nature walks. It also strengthens the Root Chakra, at the base of the spine.
Next we have the Soular (Soul Star) Chakra, which can be found about 6-12 inches above the head, in the Aura. It relates to the soul, past lives and astrology. This is where we develop an intuitive connection with the Solar System; activating the Soular Chakra makes it easier for us to process astrological transits consciously.
The energy of the astrology chart flows through the Soular Chakra, into the spiritual Aura (the outermost layer). If you are not familiar with the Aura, picture a sphere of light around your body. The Aura is an intuitive muscle; it reads your surroundings while projecting your energy and intentions into the world.
Working with the Aura
In healing school, we learned that the Aura has many layers. It has one for each of the chakras along the central column (with estimates ranging from 7-12). To keep it simple, our teachers suggested that we divide the Aura into four thick layers:
The cosmic blueprint is in the spiritual Aura layer; it underpins the rest, as each Aura layer flows through all inner layers until it reaches the physical body. Based on intuitive healing sessions, these layers relate to the Elements & the Zodiac:
Physical Aura: Earth Signs: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
Emotional Aura: Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Mental Aura: Air Signs - Libra, Aquarius, Gemini.
Spiritual Aura: Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
The energy of your birth chart is captured by your Soular Chakra, in the spiritual Aura layer, and filters through the inner layers according to your natal chart placements. Let’s say a person has Venus in Pisces (Water); that is felt in the Soular Chakra (the cosmic antenna), and it is also felt on a daily basis in the emotional Aura layer. If a person has lots of Water placements, they may need to address that with energy and vibrational healing – likewise if they don’t have many. Stimulating the emotional layer adds depth to relationships and bring happiness into our lives, while grounding brings balance. The same goes for the remaining Aura layers and their corresponding Elements and Zodiac Signs.
Energy Healing Tips:
There are many ways to balance and integrate the energy of the natal chart:
Vibrational remedies can help us soften transits and natal placements. There were covered in a previous post: A Do-It-Yourself-Astrological Pharmacy.

The ninth house in astrology is a happy house, and one of the more positive areas of your natal chart. This isn't a dark and depressing place, this is a light and happy one.

Ninth House Astrology & Your Natal Chart
Most astrology charts have 12 houses, and each rule different parts of life. Your natal chart is a snapshot of the locations of the planets, other bodies, and 12 houses in the Zodiac at the moment you're born and from the location you're born at. Your natal houses each rule different parts of your life and personality.
The ninth house is naturally ruled by Jupiter, the happy planet ruling expansion. Jupiter wants to go big, and doesn't see the point in being serious or down about life when there are so many possibilities.
At-a-Glance Ninth House Keywords:
Ninth House in Astrology: Expansion
The ninth house is a house of expansion since it's ruled by Jupiter. It can show how we expand, where we focus on expanding, and what we want to expand. We can be open and willing to pursue opportunities with the ninth house, and want to see what else there is out there.
Ninth House in Astrology: Higher Learning
The ninth house is the house of higher learning, so this is learning beyond your primary education. It can show where we gain a lot of knowledge, and this knowledge can come conventionally in school, but also through life experience. Life can be the best teacher according to the ninth house.
Ninth House in Astrology: Long-distance Travel
The ninth house rules long-distance travel, so these are places you can't get to by car or walking. Airplane travel is ruled by the ninth house, and this house can show your approach to long-distance travel, how you want to do it, where you want to go, and what you gain from it.
Ninth House in Astrology: Beliefs
The ninth house is the house of beliefs, and astrology differentiates between your values with the second house and spirituality with the twelfth house. The ninth house is political beliefs, but also religious ones (different from spirituality, which isn't necessarily religion-connected).
Ninth House in Astrology: Big Picture
The ninth house is a big picture house. It can show your approach to the big picture, where you need the big picture, and how you can also think bigger and brighter.
Ninth House in Astrology: Optimism
The ninth house in astrology is an optimistic house thanks to Jupiter, and it can show how we're optimistic, what we're optimistic about, and our approach to being optimistic. It's where we don't want to be serious, and instead are adventurous, daring, and bold.
Ninth House in Astrology: Bold Communications
The ninth house is a communication house (along with the third house), but this is big, bold communication. It's grand storytelling, and rules publishing, marketing, and publicity.
Where Your Ninth House Energy is Found
For everyone, look to the Zodiac sign your ninth house falls in. The areas of life ruled by that sign are where you need space, think big, and are optimistic. Also look to the natural planetary ruler of your ninth house (the natural planetary ruler of the Zodiac sign your ninth house falls in) as this can also connect to the 9th house energy.
If you have any natal planets in your ninth house, this can make the ninth house energy a lot stronger for you. That planet can strongly connect with your expansion, learning, travel, and beliefs.
Transit (moving) planets touring your ninth house can bring some temporary energy for ninth house matters. It can be especially strong when it's transit Mars (drive for expansion), transit Saturn (lessons with beliefs), transit Uranus (unconventional beliefs), transit Pluto (powerful bold communications), or transit Chiron (focusing on healing wounds of expansion, optimism, or beliefs).
Transit planets aspecting your natal 9th house ruler can stimulate ninth house energy as well, and conjunctions, square, and oppositions by transit Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, or Chiron can be especially challenging and require a lot of focus on your beliefs and expansion.
A Strong Ninth House in Astrology
Some may have a super strong natal ninth house. This can be the case for you if you have:
- a stellium (3+ planets) in the 9th house
- your Sun, Moon, or Chiron in the 9th house
- your North or South Node in your 9th house
- your 1st house ruler in the 9th house
- your 9th house cusp or ruler anaretic (at 29 degrees)
- retrograde Mercury, Venus, or Mars in the 9th house or ruling the 9th house
When you have a strong 9th house, your beliefs can be super important for you, and you may be a staunch defender of the beliefs you have. You may struggle if the beliefs you grew up with aren't the ones you identify with as an adult, and have to work to be true to yourself.
You may be someone who needs a lot of space to expand and explore the world, and learning can best be done for you when you're experiencing life for yourself. This may lead to a lot of failures, but you end up lucking your way into something better.
You can see the bright side to most situations, and you can see the big picture relatively easily. This opens up opportunities to you all of the time.
