My special tribute to the beautiful and insightful Claire Nakti - who
has been a wise and knowledgeable friend and inspiration.

Due to YouTube, Instagram, and social media in general, the cosmetics industry has seen a huge interest growth in women's beauty. This shows the deep interest that we, as human beings (both men and women), have for the female form. Although modern culture tends to emphasize a certain kind of “feminism” that may encourage women to leave behind their unique magnetic femininity and take on more traditionally masculine traits, the popularity of cosmetics online is a testament that many women still want to embrace the unique opportunity to explore the feminine mysteries, which inevitably center around the female body and the power it possesses. Astrology is the science of the magnetic astral forces operating on human beings. We all possess a starry (astral) magnetic body that is subject to the planets. A human being's appearance is a result of the planetary bodies acting upon this subtle sheath. Just as in Cosmology we find that each planet is essential and possessing its own incomparable beauty, so too do we find that there are many types of beauty that human beings embody. -Cosmetique Astrology

Astrology Indonesia (A.I.)





● | ● | ● | ●

I'm excited to announce a new social group I created for astrologers and
astro enthusiasts in Indonesia called Astrology Indonesia (A.I.)! 

The group was launched on Indonesia's 72nd Independence day and is currently available for
chats discussions on WhatsApp, where we can talk about current astro transits, what
we are going through and how we can go through them. Our conversations
go beyond Sun Signs because we want to grow our knowledge,
understanding and connection with the self, others
and the world around us. 

Please note, the group is currently only for people who live in Indonesia because
we want to build an astro community in Indonesia, seeing that there
has been a limited awareness of the subject. 

If you or someone you know is interested in joining Astrology Indonesia, please do not
hesitate to contact me via DM or email at: yaviz-astrology@outlook.com

My hope is to connect with like-minded people who are curious to learn more about
astrology and what it means to live with a deeper connection to the planets.

But it did happen and it confirmed my belief that when it's destined, no matter how far the distance,
we'll get there. Thank you Nadiya, it was truly magical and beautiful to spend the days

Full Moon in Libra | Truth Loving


Photo by Jacob Copus

● | ● | ● | ●

 April 11th, 2017 

Full Moon in Libra:
Living your truth is not only about speaking your truth, but also about aligning
your actions with your heart's intention to form authentic relationships.

There is a thin line between telling a lie and keeping the truth hidden. Telling a lie is about the deliberate manufacturing of an untruth, whereas keeping the truth hidden is about knowing a truth that we do not wish to reveal.

To put it simply, telling a lie, more often than not, involves the covering up of something we deem to be 'bad' to avoid a fight or an argument. And keeping the truth hidden, on the other hand, usually involves withholding information to spare another person's feelings.

Which one is better between the two? Is one really is better than the other? In the end, it all depends on the true intention behind the act of lying or keeping the truth hidden. Are we willing to pay the price of peace and freedom? Are we losing ourselves from trying to make others happy and at peace all the time? How can we form authentic relationships when we are being inauthentic?

There is a thin line between telling a lie
and keeping the truth hidden.

Being authentic is not about saying what's on our minds without filtering them. Being authentic is not about shouting all our secrets from the rooftops. Being authentic is not about going all-out or living out loud, although sometimes it can be. It all depends on the situation and what we are trying to achieve.

Being authentic is about being deeply in touch with our strengths and weaknesses, as well as accepting ourselves in all our messy glory. Being authentic is about expressing what we believe to be true about ourselves in small but effective ways, rather than in big but superficial ways.
By getting in touch with our heart's true intention, which is to love and connect authentically, we can begin to live our lives more truthfully. By listening more closely to our soul's true voice, we can begin to authentically express ourselves and therefore able to form more authentic relationships in the process.

Being authentic is about being deeply in touch with our
strengths and weaknesses, as well as accepting
ourselves in all our messy glory.

Happy Full Moon! The Moon is conjoining Jupiter Rx in Libra and forming an opposition to the Sun and Uranus in Aries, marking an electric and fiery Full Moon in the sign of the Scales. With the Sun in Aries, a sign which is all about the self, and the Moon in Libra, a sign which is all about the others, balancing compassion for self and others is the key to peace of mind.

Have we been kind to others but not to ourselves? Is being too kind a bad thing when there seems to be so much darkness in the world? True wisdom comes from understanding that we can still stay true to ourselves and values while being kind to others. That being kind is not about trying to be well-liked by others, but about bringing more light and grace into our world. That we won't be swayed by influences that aren't in alignment with our truth, because we understand that kindness is not only a gift that we give to others but also to ourselves.

Is being too kind a bad thing when there seems
to be so much darkness in the world?

The Moon is forming a square to Pluto, and it's important to remember that our greatest challenges in life can lead to our greatest evolution and transformation. Why do we feel stuck in unhealthy situations, and seem to be unable to see a way out? Why is it often difficult to break through old, fearful patterns and create new, fearless ones?

Perhaps the answer lies in our inability to see our own light. When we are unable to see our inner light, we cast a shadow over our own lives and relationships. Know that the light always brings forth new birth, a constant renewal of life. It is time to be discerning, but to also be open to let our light emerge and illuminate new paths before us.

Our greatest challenges in life can lead to our
greatest evolution and transformation.

With the Moon's sextile to Saturn, finding balance between giving and receiving can be possible. Although it's impossible to perfectly balance giving and receiving each day, we can still find a healthy balance. How much time do we really give to ourselves? Understand that when we are constantly being pulled by forces outside of ourselves — by other people, by the media, and the demands of daily life, we lose pieces of our spirit.

By carving out a little solitude, we can replenish our soul and begin to hear our inner wisdom. The Full Moon in Libra is bringing another chance for us to reclaim our spirit. To take some time to ourselves each day to boost our mental and emotional well-being. To know that by cultivating a healthy and authentic relationship with ourselves, we can form healthier and more authentic relationships with others.

New Moon in Aries | Jumping the Gun


Photo by Emma Hall

● | ● | ● | ●

 March 28th, 2017 

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
William Shakespeare

New Moon in Aries:
When in doubt, follow the moon.

When too soon is better than too late. When too much passion is better than too little persistence. Where do we draw the line between doing too much and doing too little? Is moving too fast really is better than moving too slow? The short answer to that question would be sometimes. The next question we should ask ourselves would be whether or not we truly value our time or time in general.

Valuing time doesn't mean that we should try to achieve as many things as possible as soon as possible. Valuing time means having a clear perception of time and what it means to use our time wisely. We may not know what will happen in the future, but we always know what we can do in the present. 

Sometimes jumping the gun or making a snap decision can be more beneficial in the long run than it is to postpone making a decision. Jumping the gun may not always get us to where we want to be. But it can also give us the opportunity to change direction to a path more in alignment with our soul — sooner rather than later.

Valuing time doesn't mean that we should try to achieve
as many things as possible as soon as possible.

At the end of the day, this is about taking that next step, which leads to the next and the next. This is about taking action, knowing that we are on a uniquely personal and individual journey where our soul grows with each step that we take. This is about moving forward, understanding that without action, we can't move through resistance and rise above obstacles.

Today, find the courage to go within, and discover what's buried deep in our soul. Do not let the ego persuade us to dig for things that are not even there. Instead, let the heart guide us to where we truly want to be. Go forward with audacity of hope in our hearts and courage in our souls. Remembering that we are not our mistakes. We are in truth our lessons. Our learning. Our understanding.

At the end of the day, this is about taking that next step,
which leads to the next and the next.

Happy New Moon! The Moon is joining Venus Rx, the Sun, Uranus and Mercury in Aries, marking an extra revitalizing and awakening New Moon in the sign of the Ram. Regardless of all the confusion because of too many things happening at the same time, we can find the strength to pull through. Regardless of all the uncertainty because of too many things changing at a more rapid rate, we can stand up tall and see beyond the horizon.

New Moons are fresh starts. A New Moon in Aries (aka the first sign of the zodiac and ruling the 1st House of the Self), signifies a brand new start on ourselves. Where do we feel we went wrong? Where do we feel we can change for the better because we know better? This is not to blame the past or things we did, but to learn from a place of higher awareness and love. To grow beyond old limiting beliefs and move forward with new determination and understanding of the self.

As we begin following our inner guidance, we will understand why we ignored the signals in the past. The signal to listen to our inner knowing. The signal to stay true to our highest ideals. The signal to get out of our own way and go forward with fervor.

Where do we feel we went wrong? Where do we feel we can
change for the better because we know better?

The Aries Moon is forming a square to Pluto and an opposition to Jupiter Rx, and this is not the time to fear change. Sometimes it takes an extreme wake-up call before we are pushed to change and open a new page in our lives. Yet, we shouldn't wait to hit rock bottom before we are convinced that we need to change because there are things we will regret not doing sooner.

By listening more to our inner knowing, we will increasingly dislike lies we tell ourselves. By staying true to our highest ideals, we will become more committed to our self-care and release self-sabotaging patterns.

We shouldn't wait to hit rock bottom before we are convinced
that we need to change because there are things
we will regret not doing sooner.

With the Moon and Mercury forming a trine to Saturn, the ability to reason and strategize becomes front and center. Take things at face value and follow the logical path for in this moment there is no deeper meaning than what is obvious. We have the sensitivity to focus on steps we need to take next to reclaim our power and reinflame our lives.

A New Moon in Aries is that much-needed chance for regeneration. This is our time to revive opportunities we thought were dead. No matter what lost has occurred in the past, we can be reborn all the time and recreate a new present. Endings may come in many forms, but now is our chance to let whatever isn't working in our life die and to recognize the dawn of our renewed spirit.

Full Moon in Virgo | Keeping Up With Your Dreams



● | ● | ● | ●

 March 12th, 2017 

Full Moon in Virgo: 
Every dream begins with a single thought, a single step, a single decision to try.

When hope doesn't seem to bring our dreams any closer... When giving up feels like the right step to take next... What can we do when faith in our dreams gets shaken? What can we change in order to move closer in the direction of our dreams? One of the most important aspects to examine before deciding to give up is whether or not the road ahead will be detrimental to our well-being.

Know that giving up people or situations that no longer serve our greatest good can actually be a wise choice. What can hold us back is when we decide to give up because of our fear of the unknown or in other words, fear of an uncertain future. Perhaps because of painful past experiences or perhaps because of friends or even families that create fears and limitations based on their own personal perspectives.

Know that giving up people or situations that no longer serve
our greatest good can actually be a wise choice.

What we need to remember when we are on the verge of giving up is that each and every one of us is unique. We are essentially made of different layers, and those layers transform with each experience that we encounter. Whatever blocks we have been coming up against or pain we have been feeling will always pass and we will survive. Whatever didn't work in the past doesn't mean that we are doomed for life. Even if we believe that some scars last for life doesn't mean that we will be the exact same person for the rest of our lives.

When we persevere, we get to know ourselves better and discover new layers within ourselves that we didn't know we had. When we open our mind and heart to new opportunities, we open ourselves to new, unseen possibilities. As we recognize that everything in the world has a rhythm, we will see that beneath each struggle lies an opportunity to transform ourselves from who we are to who we really want to be.

Even if we believe that some scars last for life doesn't mean that
we will be the exact same person for the rest of our lives.

Happy Full Moon! The Moon in Virgo is forming an opposition to Neptune, the Sun, Chiron and Mercury in Pisces, marking a super earthy yet otherworldly Full Moon in the sign of the Virgin. Striking a balance between the material and the spiritual is needed to up our self-awareness to the next level. A Full Moon in an Earth sign presents a culmination of practical steps we have taken since the last New Moon.

Are we happy with the fruits of our labor? Or do we need to find ways to step up our game? Perhaps we have done our best but there still seems to be a lot of work to be done. This Full Moon is about realizing that to keep up with our dreams, we need to cultivate the right mental attitude. This is no longer about whether or not we have done our best, but whether or not we have discovered the spiritual wisdom within our persistence.

Striking a balance between the material and the spiritual is
needed to up our self-awareness to the next level.

The Moon is forming a trine to Mars and Pluto, and we can confidently move forward, knowing that darkness can no longer hide the light of awareness. Imagine how would our lives be different if other people's opinions were of no concern to us? How would we handle each day differently if we lived faithfully to our truth?

We were gifted with the power of authenticity. By living our truth, we can peel off layers of illusion and stop letting others dictate our worth. By living authentically, we can be liberated from belief systems that keep our minds imprisoned and recognize which way we are being pointed — giving us the confidence to move forward on a path most aligned with our highest good.

By living our truth, we can peel off layers of illusion
and stop letting others dictate our worth.

With the Moon's square to Saturn, evaluation of the past along with the lesson that we've learned will enable us to rebuild a new and more solid foundation for our future. Do not let painful memories to intimidate us into quitting. Blocks often appear on our path to move us in a new and different direction.

The Full Moon in Virgo is bringing to us the reminder that surrendering to the unknown is where the magic currently resides. Even if we are unable to see what is ahead, cultivate curiosity rather than resisting change. Even if things do not go exactly as we plan, truly notice and appreciate the deeper messages offered. Know and trust that what seems like an ending is always an opportunity for a new beginning.

New Moon in Pisces | The Power in Our Now



● | ● | ● | ●

 February 26th, 2017 

New Moon in Pisces:
Don't let pain crush your confidence. Let it build your resilience.

Recognizing the power in our now is one of the first steps to letting go of fear of the future as well as building and growing our resilience. Realizing the power we have in our now leaves less room for fear to take root and influence our lives. When we permeate our present with fear, we lose our trust in ourselves, and because of this, we also lose our trust in life. By using the present to worry about the future, we rob the joy from today to mourn the joy we may not have tomorrow.

Perhaps we are trying to protect ourselves from pain, because we have been disappointed by life far too many times. When in reality, we are just overwhelming ourselves with endless what-ifs and worst-case scenarios. It's about time that we understood the difference between worrying and problem-solving. Because one revolves around the illusion of control through anticipating difficulties, whereas the other is about defining the problem and identifying the steps to solve it. In other words, one is passive while the other is active.

When we permeate our present with fear, we lose our trust in
ourselves, and because of this, we also lose our trust in life.

Passively worrying limits our minds and prevents us from thinking of alternate scenarios. Instead of wasting our time with worry, we can begin to shift our perspective by asking ourselves, "Is this the only way this experience could play out?" or "What can I learn from this experience so that I don't have to repeat the same problem in the future?" Actively channeling our energy into problem-solving boosts our willpower and builds our resilience through pain and adversity.

By seeing a painful moment as an opportunity to evolve, we can begin the process of shedding the skin of the past and growing newer and thicker skin. By recognizing that an old part of us is dying and a new part of us is emerging, we will see that our lives are unfolding as they should.

By seeing a painful moment as an opportunity to evolve, we can
begin the process of shedding the skin of the past and
growing newer and thicker skin.

Happy New Moon! The Moon is conjoining Mercury, the Sun, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, marking a magical and healing New Moon in the sign of the Fish. This particular New Moon also happens to be a Solar Eclipse, bringing to light areas in our lives that need to change and guiding us to move from one level of awareness to the next. With a Solar Eclipse happening in one of the Water signs, emotions can be heightened, and with increased sensitivity.

We have learned from our experiences before and we know what works and doesn't work for us. Neptune and Chiron are empowering us to approach life from a meta-level — using our spiritual intelligence to solve problems with more wisdom and compassion without being distracted by drama. Maintaining inner and outer peace shouldn't be about avoidance of reality, but about facing reality with the awareness of and ability to separate the voice of Higher Self from the Ego self.

Neptune and Chiron are empowering us to approach life from
a meta-level — using our spiritual intelligence to solve
problems with more wisdom and compassion.

The Moon in Pisces is forming a sextile to Pluto, and we have the strength and inner courage to stand our ground, no matter how challenging things may appear. We are being asked to stay true to our core values and not succumb to the currents of fear. We have been through so much to get to this point, and scars we acquired have made us who we are today. We may also notice that we have been experimenting with new attitudes and thought patterns, and this feeds our spirit and offers us glimpses of new possibilities.

With the Moon's square to Saturn, we need to stand back for clarity and see the bigger picture. Sometimes blocks and challenges appear on our path to remind us of loose ends that need to be tied up before we can move forward. The Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse is a time to leave behind what was once familiar in search for new horizons. A time to go within to reclaim our power as well as to reaffirm to ourselves, "I am not my fears. I am not my pain. I have the power to make changes, and I trust the process of my ever-changing and ever-growing life."
