Clutter in Your Home, Clutter in Your Soul: How to Clean It Out, WGN Radio 8/23

Anne Nordhaus-Bike Astrology on WGN Radio: use Virgo to clear clutter.

Anne returns to Frank Fontana’s top-rated show on WGN Radio on August 23. Anne and Frank will talk about how astrology–especially Virgo’s energy–can help us get rid of clutter.

Clutter in your home may reflect clutter you’re holding onto in your inner life. Get tips on how to get rid of the “Clutter in Your Home, Clutter in Your Soul” this Saturday, August 23, when Anne returns to Frank Fontana’s “Design Dude” show on WGN Radio AM 720 Chicago.

“The current astrology indicates this is a great time to work on clearing out clutter on all planes,” Anne explained. “The Sun leaves playful, creative Leo and enters detail-oriented, neatness-loving Virgo this Friday, August 22, at 11:47 p.m. CDT. That’s just hours before our show on WGN Radio, so we’re ‘right on time’ for talking about cleaning. Virgo focuses on order and cleanliness, and it has a passion for health, especially holistic approaches. Astrology is a wonderful, holistic way to tune in to Virgo energies and apply them in our everyday lives.”

Over the summer, you may have felt like kicking back and just enjoying yourself. Now that Virgo time is nearly here, though, you likely will begin feeling ready to buckle down to business and tackle all those home improvement projects you’ve been putting off. “Virgo energy can help us all look at the minute details of every aspect of our life, figure out what’s not working, and take practical steps to get rid of what we no longer need,” Anne added. “Afterward, we’ll feel lighter and much more efficient.”

Moon and Sun watercolor just released

Moon and Sun watercolor © Anne Nordhaus-Bike

ANB Communications has just released Anne’s Moon and Sun watercolor painting as cards and posters, to coincide with this year’s current shift from lunar Cancer to solar Leo. Moon and Sun, watercolor on paper. © Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike. All rights reserved.

A SPECIAL NOTE TO OUR READERS: As regular readers of our blog and newsletter are aware, this month’s astrology is bringing us a larger than usual shift from Cancer to Leo because the planet Jupiter has just ended its one-year tour of Cancer and entered Leo for a 13-month stay. Jupiter’s change of signs came July 16, just before the Sun’s annual shift out of Cancer and into Leo, which will occur on July 22. The last time Jupiter and the Sun both moved into Leo so close on each other’s heels was 1931, when they entered Leo just six days apart. So we have the best opportunity we’ve had in 83 years to experience the combination of solar and lunar cycles and energies and really feel what this means for us, both personally and in the world at large.

Anne’s Moon and Sun watercolor painting symbolizes this annual solar shift as well as the essence of astrology and our spiritual purpose. For these reasons, we have decided to release this painting to the public by making it available as cards and posters through our online fine arts store. Having your own copy of this image can help you bring astrology into your daily life while giving you a powerful tool for meditation. Read on to learn more about the deep meaning and mystical significance behind this beautiful work of art.

Moon and Sun watercolor “the essence of astrology”

Moon and Sun watercolor card © Anne Nordhaus-Bike

Moon and Sun cards come in three sizes: 5.6 by 4 inches, 7 by 5 inches, and 11 by 8.5 inches.

This watercolor depicts the essence of astrology in a single, simple symbol. Painted in watercolor on pristine, cold-pressed paper, it sums up key astrological and spiritual concepts and offers a living symbol of our true purpose.

At left sits the tranquil, silver Moon against a swirling, dark blue sky, and at right sits the vibrant, golden Sun against a clear, light blue sky. In astrology, the two most important heavenly bodies are the Sun and the Moon. Also called the luminaries, they Continue reading

Astrology July 2014: Out of Darkness, Into Light

Moon and Sun watercolor © Anne Nordhaus-Bike

The Moon rules Cancer and is associated with night, while the Sun rules Leo and is associated with day. This month, we will experience the annual shift in emphasis from Cancer to Leo and from night to day in a dramatic way because giant Jupiter also is moving from Cancer into Leo, where it will travel for 13 months. Moon and Sun watercolor © Anne Nordhaus-Bike.

Have you felt extra emotional or anxious since the Solstice on June 21? Have issues or feelings from the past surfaced in your life or in the lives of your family and friends? Do you have a sense that something is shifting both within yourself and in the outside world?

If so, you are feeling the annual effects of the Sun’s movement through the astrological sign Cancer, which is ruled by the tender, changeable Moon and is associated with night. Yet this year’s Cancer time brings us something more: as of Saturday, July 12, we will enter an energetic tunnel for the next two weeks that will help us move “out of darkness, into light” as we make our way from Cancer to Leo.

So if you’ve been feeling depleted or tired and wondering when spirits will brighten and things will change for the better, know that Continue reading
