FULL MOON in AQUARIUS (almost lunar eclipse), August 18, 2016- Letting go may bring joy from the unexpected?
Well, last night when I did my radio show on SGN/Going Beyond Astrology I went to publish it something occurred and it disappeared forever. Oh well. I guess the unexpected Uranus energy was too much. You can read about the Full Moon in Aquarius in this post if you didn’t get a chance to listen in.
As the year speeds by I wonder how many of you have actually awakened from the sleep that has kept you prisoner for a long time. It amazes me that life changes around you yet many are so stuck in belief patterns which are keeping you from leaping into a new reality. This keeps you from noticing what it is you are here to do for yourself and humanity. Isn’t it about time those belief structures dissolve and you allow yourself to be free from the past. Oh, here I go again talking about letting go of the past. Well, the energy is changing and it is going to affect you eventually. I say, go with it and do your own bidding instead of letting the unexpected take you for a ride where you may not like it. Hey, it takes some clarity to reach your destination within the realm of this world. Clarity comes when you give up being stuck and push through it. Rebirth anyone? Will you actually allow it…I mean will your ego support this? Nah! Ego is in control and that’s all that matters. But is it? You tell me. Things are going to get even faster and big shifting will take place. If you know what direction you are headed then you can ride around it instead of being affected by it. Your choice! Some will say how negative…no this is real. “When enough people shift their belief structures to look at the world in fresh, new ways, cultural paradigms shift” a quote from Zen Gardner
And this period from March has been saying you may be paying some possible karmic dues. It was tough for many since Saturn was retrograde in Sagittarius. This gave you an opportunity to fix whatever had to be fixed. Do you feel you were tested? It was to make sure you were ready to take on the extra responsibility? The lessons you learned might be hard but they are valuable. Saturn stationed direct on August 13 and you should come to terms with the relevant issues and be ready to take on the next phase. With Venus in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces taking place during this time you may watch out for any predators in your life or be careful on dating sites until this aspect passes by.
This Full Moon in Aquarius is an almost lunar eclipse. It is a close miss and so it is a bit more powerful than a regular full moon. It takes place on August 18, 2106 in 25 degrees 51’ at 5:26am EDT; 2:26am PDT; and 9:26am GMT. Uranus in Aries is trine (easy aspect) to the Sun in Leo and sextile the Moon in Aquarius. It is saying to you to open up more and broaden your friendships. It can bring you in contact with more social groups and lead you to what your grand wish is in life in an out of the ordinary way. This full moon almost immediately goes void of course (no other aspects before it goes into Pisces) so even if it is looked at as an almost eclipse it will dissipate quickly. Leading up to this Full Moon the energy takes off to the heights and you may wish to watch your words and thoughts since this is a time when they can become reality. Find something about which to smile.
How this Full Moon in Aquarius will affect you personally really depends on how you handle Aquarian energy. Some will have a more difficult time to handle it than others. Some of you will feel like a blast of fresh air has come into your life. The day may not evolve as you most expect. So just be open to what it brings to you. Some may act contrary just because they choose to be that way. If others act out just don’t take it personally. Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius. Mr. Aquarius is unorthodox you might say and a bit quirky. And since Uranus at present is retrograde in Aries it is an almost revolutionary fighting for freedom. Stir up the revolution he might be saying to those who are listening. Not everything is out in the open with you and your weird thinking because Uranus is going backwards. Right now it is more personal and a bit introverted with this Full Moon in Aquarius.
To me this Full Moon in Aquarius is saying that this is another look at the new paradigm which has been trying to emerge for some time. If those holding onto old beliefs and ingrained patterns would just let them go then life will become something totally different then it is right now. Many say this is me and I am refusing to let go of what rings true with me. Ok. You continue the stubborn act as a child having a tantrum. What do these old patterns do for you? Why is it you are fearful of acknowledging them and giving them up. Is it because your mother told you so…you are this way or that way and now you mimic exactly what she said many years past. Stop now. Right now and take a breath and look at what is happening in your life. Has it changed? No. Do you wish it would do so? Maybe! But then you think oh, no, my friends will desert me, my spouse will not like me and my children will make fun of me. And you know what there is so much more and you just let your ego rule and control and threaten and nothing happens.
And since the Sun in Leo is also trine Uranus in Aries you are filled with joy and fun today and over the next week if you wish to try something a bit different, now is the time to do it. Enjoy the good feelings that have popped up out of nowhere. Don’t they feel better than the other you?
There may be some mental tension and challenges that arise for some of you at the Aquarius Full Moon inconjunct the Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in Virgo. It asks you to look at the details the shift is taking you and sift a bit through it. Take a walk if you need to relax. Also, your dreams may be intense and quite vivid. It is through Mercury and Jupiter that you manifest all that crazy energy in a stable and useful form.
Venus in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn at 15:17degrees is the strongest aspect in Full Moon in Aquarius apart from the almost eclipse itself. Perhaps the good news coming out of your special mission has something to do with big improvements in your love life and finances. You are at your most attractive and you will like just being around others. Venus is also conjunct the North Node in Virgo today (exact) August 16 so it is a great day to ask for what you want but be careful as to that wish, because you just might get it and that energy continues for a short time down the road. Also Jupiter is inconjunct Uranus in Aries so if you are creative you may come up with something a bit unusual whether in music or artwork or any other creative ideas that pop in.
Let this Full Moon energy open up to the unexpected. Take time for fun and unusual creativeness. Keep your heart open. Tune into Going Beyond Astrology Tuesday nights 9pm EDT. Thank you for reading and blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
There is a joy within your soul
that no one else does see
Unless you bring it out and show
the world just who you can be.
Hop upon the lion’s back
and find that authentic place
Gather the energy once and for all
to start your forward race.
Find the passion within your heart
let it come through to you and around
Take the reins of your true bliss
and roar the loudest sound.
Ever changing now it is
will you take the chance?
Go out under the new moon tonight
and do that crazy dance.
Dance around with you inner child
always keeping in mind
You are you and that’s all that counts
and joy you will truly find. (copyright JK)
So dear ones have you been purging the anger, the sadness, and the frustration? I did find out how much is still buried within the depths after this last full moon since I have been doing a lot of tapping or EFT as you wish to call it. Found a great 7 week course on Finances and personal fulfillment given by the Tapping Solution (Nick Ortner) and it is amazing. And I thought I was all finished purging out the junk. Yeah right!!! On the other hand it is bringing so much lightness to my being. The current week was about procrastination and self-sabotage. Oh my, and the procrastination stirred its ugly head again. That’s ok. The New Moon showing up may turn it all around. And this week is about how to shine in one’s life. How interesting and appropriate since the New Moon is in Leo.
And on the other side of the mountain there is so little noise with the candidates since the conventions have ended. Supposedly they hired actors to sit in on the DNC. Those taking part in the Rio Olympics are in for some dirty water. There is so much ‘gunk” in the water where the swimming and rowing and other events will take place that there definitely is some danger to those participating. That certainly doesn’t sound too enticing. Did you know that China does not allow original journalism? Just thought you might like to know. You never know when it will show up here, (I think it is already in the process). Oh and by the way, how many of you were glued to your cell phone today? Is it helping you find your passion?
Now let’s take a look at the New Moon in Leo. It shows up on Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at 4:44pm EDT, 1:44pm PDT and 8:44EDT in 10degrees 57’. The Sun also is in Leo. The numbers remind me of Angel numbers. It is saying that to continue working on what you choose and follow your passion; expand to new horizons; and be the ambassador of integrity (for each of the time zones.) What does the Sun in Leo choose to say to you? On my radio show last Tuesday I spoke about the Sun and how it shines in your life. So now the Moon is also together with the Sun and both are trying to say let the creative part of your life come through strongly. Find the courage to do what your heart cries out in passion to do. Seriously, dear ones, this is an outstanding time to start fresh, renew your interest in what is truly you and take a leap. Now I realize I am always talking about leaping, It is true though. You can take a mini leap or a giant one. Put your intentions out there and see what happens. The only thing holding back you from moving forward is you. Those patterns I speak of and all the other junk that still needs to go will continue to interfere in you forward motion until you let them all go.
This Leo New Moon is also about opening your heart. Do you truly know what that means? The ego wants to compete and be recognized and the heart wants to compromise and help others. What do you choose to do? Will you be able to bring them both into alignment so that you can speak the truth and move into that place of joy? That is exactly what this New Moon in Leo is saying to you. Connect with your joy. Connect with your inner child. Find your creativity. It is now time for you to create the new you and pay attention to the love in your heart. Some of you don’t have time for love. Love is not just about relationships. Love is about going out there with compassion and interest to help others besides knowing what makes brings the glow to your eyes and the passion to your heart. So, New Moon in Leo is giving you that opportunity to do it.
This Leo New Moon is saying to you to find your authenticity and let others see it. Stop hiding behind the mask that no longer serves you. This is true you sharing with the world. Can you bring that authentic you out in the open and watch how others start to see your sunshine. Yes, it does work. And maybe it is a bit ego but you are just going with what drives your passion. If you dislike what you are doing and your interest is not present, then find something that makes you roar like the lion of Leo. On the other hand it is truly about coming to a compromise if that is needed. Know that it is time to take a stand in your power without being too proud. Got it??
The New Moon in Leo trines Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn gives you structure and stability to all the creative ideas that may come through. And it keeps you on track with your passions too. Saturn will go direct on the 13th of August so that is saying to go full speed ahead with practical planning. Mars has entered Sagittarius after that retrograde haul in Scorpio. Mars now gives you some optimism and you remember what you need to do at last. Will you take a leap or just a small step? Your choice it is. Venus in Leo is trine to Uranus in Aries and that could me a surprise in a relationship or an unexpected connection. Now is time to break free from what is holding you back in your life. Some of you need to watch impulse spending. Neptune quincunx New Moon means trust your inner guidance even when it makes no sense.
Those most intensely affected are birthdays of Leo (July 27-August 4); Scorpio (October 30-November 5); Aquarius (January 28-February 4); and Taurus (April 27-May 4). If you have planets at the degrees then those will also be affected.
Tidbits for the Sun/Rising Signs: Aries-Take constructive action and you may find yourself involved with children or creative ventures. Taurus– Doors may open to money and sensual expansion along with a redecorating project. Gemini– Lots of activity in your daily life including communication, running errands and short trips which will produce good results. Cancer-Some money issues come up since you want to splurge with some confusion showing up. Leo-You can charm anyone now so push it to the limits and make some wishes they may just show up. Virgo-Raw emotional trigger shows up in either a business or intimate setting behind the scenes. Libra-A possible new beginning in your social life can take place with networking peaking. Scorpio– Your public and career sector are highlighted.so put out your good intentions. Sagittarius-Take the long-range view and watch for an opportunity that can show up as you look to the future. Capricorn-New Moon emphasizes finances and sexual intimacy so keep those love seeds planted. Aquarius-Are you planning to pool resources for bigger business profits or just some adventure with friends? Pisces-Good time to initiate plans for your well-being and take a look at what is working and not at work.
Take the joy and light up your world. Thank you for reading dear ones and have a wonderful New Moon in Leo. Set those intentions and take a leap no matter how small.

As I write this new post for Cosmic Leaping I find myself wondering how many of you actually desire the truth. Dear ones, it is time to open your eyes and see what is happening in the world as the powerful Full Moon in Capricorn comes to you. As I have often said, nothing is as it seems. There is a hidden revolution going on and you are seeing the chaos that comes from it. The ongoing struggle between the old matrix ways in which we have been trapped for centuries is now on the way out. Those who have created this are hanging on in any way to continue to control and bombard you in any way they can. A whirlwind of negativity from the mainstream media surrounds you every day by keeping you from inspiration and knowing who you are. Think about it. How many of you have become lethargic? Or have you become complacent? What really interests you? Is it just the materialistic side of life itself? Step back and allow the truth to unfold within you. Many of you will say that this is bunk and it is this or that is causing this chaos. What you think is what you create! So if you are constantly watching the downside in the news and taking part in the drama around you, whether family or business associates or otherwise then guess what? Your life becomes stuck and you have no idea who you really are. You may wish to choose differently. Let this Full Moon help you purge out much of the past junk that is still hanging on. And see how differently your life shows up.
What influences does this Full Moon in Capricorn carry to you? It arrives Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at 6:56pm EDT, 3:56pm PDT and 10:56pm GMT at 27degrees 40’. The Sun is in Cancer at 27degrees 40’. Since the New Moon in Cancer just occurred it revolved around family, needs and various intimacies of feelings. The Full Moon in Capricorn brings to the picture the outer complexities and restraints that come in this 3D world. Capricorn has always been more patriarchal and masculine. The entire month has been leading up to this Full Moon. It is a time for recognizing what needs adjustment in your life. It is about the inner needs of Cancer Sun and the outer needs of the Capricorn moon. The key is to balance them. The Full Moon lights up where the balance is needed. It is about getting rid of any relationship, situation or unhealthy habit that has overstayed its visit. And you say how can you do this. Why not through meditation, prayer or just doing what makes you feel peaceful and calm? Keep in mind that sometimes fate takes part in it or you can make the choice. If you choose to let something go—purge your life of whatever it may be—do it in a calm and peaceful way since the Full Moon is squaring (in conflict) with Uranus in Aries which makes it an unexpected type energy.
Since Uranus in Aries is a big part of this Full Moon in Capricorn energy there is a tendency to go off the deep end in plain terms. So depending where it falls in your natal chart will tell you exactly what area is affected. How many of you have let go of the past that no longer serves you? Uranus cuts to the chase and says hey, if it isn’t working and it has been there way too long, out it goes. Done! So know that it will take something away if it no longer is needed by you. I suggest you do it yourself, dear ones, so Uranus can just sweep the remains out the door. What do you say?
The shadow side may come to the forefront this week for some of you. Don’t be rankled? And depressed feeling may overtake you. Stop them. Face up to your fears and notice them. Watch your words also for they can start a disagreement which will turn ugly. Some may have a feeling of lack. Keep your thoughts on abundance throughout the next couple of weeks. Yes, you are a money magnet. Remember that. Work on yourself too not just pleasing others. That old habit has to go. Release it.
The Full Moon in Capricorn is sextile both Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. So the Sun in Cancer is in a grand trine with Mars and Chiron which is exact today July 17. Since this is part of the Full Moon energy it says to slow down, regroup and recreate yourself to listening to your higher self. It is also a good time to focus energies on healing and it also may open the door to releasing anything that has kept you in a stagnant state.
Other aspects happening with this Full Moon in Capricorn are Mercury and Venus in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury trine Saturn brings to you a logical approach to figuring out your next move in whatever creative project you are working on. It is helping you get from where you are to the next step of your goal. Also Venus and Saturn are both quincunx (need adjusting) to Neptune In Pisces which tells you to let your heart lead the way, not your head. And the Sun in aspect to Neptune is saying a leap of faith may be needed. Uranus is going station retrograde on the 29th (more about that closer to the time). It may indicate breaking free from something in your life.
For those born in the Cardinal signs –Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn -from April 14-April 20; July 16-July 22; October 16-October 22; and January 14-January 20 will be more intensely affected and if you have rising signs in the later degrees of these signs then you too will have more intense energy.
From the Animal Cards–Otter has appeared and says that it is good to let things unfold in your life. “Focus on all of the wonderful things that surround you right now. Use this this magic to help you let go of all the stress in your life. Joy is found in the little things.” -Otter
Some tidbits for the Sun signs and rising signs-
Aries- Frustrations between work and home about outer world ambitions and inner securities.
Taurus-Something comes into play that may instigate change and inspires you onward.
Gemini- Great time the next few weeks to firm up some financial matters. Good stuff.
Cancer-Your independence can put you at odds in a relationship. You are in driver’s seat.
Leo- Some projects need attention. Don’t burn the candle at both ends. Take a break.
Virgo-You can make some improvements with your creative enterprises, children or lovers.
Libra-What emotional urgency pops up at home or work? Use your cool reason to walk through.
Scorpio- Is there more responsibility coming to you? Avoid any rash decisions no matter what.
Sagittarius- Who has the power over your purse strings? Resource management needed.
Capricorn- Some differences come to light and are charged up. Rebuild on solid ground.
Aquarius-You need to regroup both mind and body. Some urgencies in your daily work possible.
Pisces- Look for that friend or community ally to help you get that project going. You can do it.
Happy Full Moon to you! Remember the energy lasts for a few weeks and it is time to really let go as you make plans to regenerate and find balance. There is a lot more that I will be talking about on SGN Going Beyond Astrology http://www.spiritualbistro.com/sgn-on-air.html at 9pm EDT Tuesday July 19. Hope you can tune in. You never know what other things may be discussed. The upcoming new moon is on August 2. See you then back here. Thank you for all you do and are. Until again. Love, Jan
The New Moon is just about upon you. Is it passion or power struggles? Is motherly love or family tensions? What is changing for you? Is there a turning point coming into your life? You tell me. This New Moon is about the feminine side and its integration.
Is it really July? What happened to June? That certainly flew by or else I just was not paying attention. Did you feel that too? There have been lots of interesting things going on especially the Brexit referendum. So England has left the European Union. What do you think? The grand square was on the bank’s natal moon/.Uranus during the preliminary phase. Is it just about getting England’s borders back, if so, will it actually happen? I think the United States needs to get its borders back but then again I am not going there right now. Oh, this is great I just saw that Pepsi is now going back to using Aspartame in their diet sodas due to loss of sales. Who is drinking this crap? It is so bad for you I cannot even start to describe the negative effects which it has. And Mrs. Clinton apparently is meeting with the FBI this weekend. One more thing—for those who collect Social Security don’t expect a cost of living raise more than 0.2% in 2017. What a joke. So onward to the New Moon we go.
The New Moon in Cancer arrives on Monday, July 4, 2016 at 7:00am EDT, 4:00am PDT and 11:00am GMT in 12 degrees 53’. The Sun is also at the same degree in the sign Cancer. What do you know about the sign Cancer? It is also called Moonchild since it is ruled by the Moon. It is truly about the feminine receptive principle. It is about the yin/yang within. Everyone has both a feminine and masculine side. The feminine is about passion, strength and creativity. The male side is protection, devotion and support. A New Moon in Cancer on July 4 reminds us of what’s really important — family and a sense of comfort. Do something to honor your need for emotional security. Since Cancer loves the nostalgic thing it is not time to look back anymore.
Looking at the planets as they sit with this New Moon- Pluto is opposing the Moon/Sun. Pluto may throw a bit of a knock on the head because it wants things to change and you better know that it will create that change if you are in its way. So I say go with it. Pluto opposing this New Moon is saying to you to purge out all the unnecessary tensions which have been hanging out in your life and let it go. The past is gone. Move on. But, you say to yourself that you don’t want to forget the wounds and on and on you go. Please. This is a big opportunity. Go beyond the norm of hanging on to those issues that no longer matter. Stop. Take a big breath. And go through that door that Pluto has opened. See the difference.
Not only is the New Moon/Sun in a water sign but so are Venus which is in Cancer; Mercury in Cancer; Mars in Scorpio; Neptune in Pisces. Chiron also is in Pisces. From June 30-July 22 there is a grand trine between Venus, then Mercury then the Sun with Mars and Chiron. This tells you that it is time to go within and forget the materialism at the moment. Now is when you can open your heart and heal/close old wounds. Also, it is a time to clear up misunderstandings. Will your ego allow yourself to do this? Reach within for the warmth of your heart and soul and let the introspective part play a higher role in your life right now so these things can take place. Make peace not war as July moves forward and the New Moon energy takes you easily along. But you need to act too!!! Remember that!!!
Saturn in Sagittarius is square Neptune in Pisces and what does it mean for you? It has been ongoing since 2015 and continues on like that until the end of this year. It is about our dreams and coming up with a plan of action. Well, that certainly sounds familiar. Since Neptune is sextile Pluto in Capricorn then it is saying are you ready to manifest what you desire? It is really about taking the time to rework your life so that you can pursue that which you are most passionate. If you have limitations in your life now is a good time to release them as the month goes forward. Sun/Moon is trine Neptune in Pisces and this can bring you into dreamland in a big way. This will help you be inspired.
Venus is opposing Pluto also and was exact on June 30. It is a time to look at the shadows in your life and how you are projecting them on others. These things I refer to are power games, manipulation, obsessions and hidden agendas. Maybe you may wish to transform your fear too!! There is a win-win situation if you are willing to be honest with yourself and create empowerment. This opposition deals with relationships, finances, resources and your values. Venus opposing Pluto can set the stage for very passionate love affairs.
Jupiter in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn says there is good luck in both professional and personal affairs for the month so open your eyes and heart to allow the growth to take place. It can be career advancement or personal achievement depending on where it is in your chart. Any work you do with integrity is going to be most beneficial to you.
New Moon for Sun/Rising signs-
Aries- How can you make a fresh start in your home or with family? Security matters.
Taurus-You could be traveling or spending time with family. Watch funds.
Gemini-Support, love and emotionally caring can bring support. Watch temper?
Cancer- This is a new start. Where do you want to be a year from now?
Leo-Some opposition appears. You may wish to retreat and spend time to regenerate.
Virgo-What is changing domestically? Don’t spread yourself too thin. Social interactions!
Libra-Some emotional urgency in home or professional affairs appears. Jump hurdles.
Scorpio- Positive vibes surround thoughts of moving, travel, and promoting interests.
Sagittarius-Financial affairs need some downsize and order. Easygoing energy!
Capricorn-You are on the verge of changes in relationships. Harmonizing is the key.
Aquarius- At work don’t get caught up with the details – use your gut feelings.
Pisces-It is time to get away with loved ones. Get projects out there. Have some fun.
This new moon energy is ongoing for a few weeks to come so it is a favorable time for healing any emotional conflicts that you may have either within or in relationships. Put your intentions out there at this time. It is a powerful and sensitive energy with this New Moon in Cancer. Take time to look within and anything that needs healing can be done. Use it wisely for as I said earlier there can be a major turning point.
Thank you for reading. Please share if you will. I will be talking about some further New Moon insights on Going beyond Astrology on SGN Tuesday night (July 5) at 9pm EDT. Join me. Be blessed, stay in the moment and happy New Moon energy to you. Love, Jan
Well it doesn’t happen frequently that a Full Moon and Summer Solstice arrives within a short time of each other but here it comes. And those western states I am sure wish that a freeze would show up since I am hearing the high in Phoenix area is supposed to be 119 degrees. Are you kidding me? Can you even breathe in that kind of temperature? I know stay in the air conditioning and all is well. Then again will the A/C last as everyone pumps it up even more? Just saying. Somewhere in the background I heard that the interest rates are going up. How true is it? And not sure that England is too happy right now since the banks are being held hostage in some way and it is now sitting on the edge. Hang tight. Oh, how can I forget to mention that Germany who is one of the NATO strong members is no longer in support of this organization? Where will this lead? Also, those hooligans from Croatia who disrupted the game with Czech Republic are somehow ready to do it again when Croatia meets Spain. They are protesting against the Croatian Football Federation.
Is it quirky or just scary or maybe just a bit strange? The Full Moon is to what I am referring. Will you be able to perceive what is really going on or will you just put up that shield of protective light and walk through the days and nights just waiting patiently to be shown what is not seen. Who is having it tough right now? You are questioning everything and wish to be in a place that offers a respite so that that entire gunk goes away. Or is it just in your mind? You tell me. What do you wish to do? I say be patient and allow what is staring at you from the depths and maybe even the dark spaces around you. Just keep walking or take a break for those who have any planets in difficult aspect to this Full Moon. You need to slow down or burn out comes and who needs that? I am really sensitive right now and I refuse to open myself to this smattering of forces that wish to get in my head. Well, they are unlucky because my shield is too strong and I will walk on through. Something all of you have to do at this time.
And where is this Full Moon occurring? It is coming about on June 20, 2016 in the sign of Sagittarius. Hey, wasn’t there another Full Moon in Sag a month ago? Yes, there was and its energy was totally different due to the dark shadows that play with this one. It occurs at 7:02am EDT, 4:02am PDT and 11:02am GMT in 29 degrees 32’ of Sagittarius. The Sun is opposing at the same degree in Gemini. Can you remember when the last Full Moon occurred twice in the same sign? It sure does want to penetrate your mind and throw you off a bit. Hey, stay in your power and stop letting the shadow of others get to you. I did that for years and maybe this is why I am saying not happening. Shield is up totally and do check for holes in that aura of yours.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is about truth and openness. Since Jupiter rules Sagittarius it is expanding the way you look at those insights and understanding that comes to you. It is your search for wisdom and truth that brings you a new understanding and even a opening to the life purpose. Whereas the Gemini Sun is saying that yes, talk all you want but how about listening also. Curiosity is also a Gemini trait. The other side of Gemini is dominated by the mind totally. Too much thinking appears. And shadow Sagittarius says it is entitled. Really? This Full Moon in Sagittarius is about walking your talk so that you can fully understand deeper truths.
Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) is in Virgo and trines Pluto in Capricorn (exact on June 26 at 16 degrees 29’) says that you need to be discerning and notice what is draining or distracts you so that you can concentrate on that which is really important. Mercury (ruler of Gemini Sun fills the empty leg of the T-square of Jupiter/Saturn/Neptune) and is saying to be extra careful of your thoughts and assumptions. And Chiron is in a T-square with the Full Moon/Sun which is saying to please don’t let any struggle or difficulty in your life take over. Look at it and let it heal you even though it may still be present. It is about finding a better way to deal with those things that you may find uncomfortable in your life.
Venus is opposite the Full Moon in Sagittarius and says that you want things to be beautiful. You command the bad news to go away. If this Full Moon touches on your life then you are pulled to either your duties parent/family or going with satisfying your wildest desires. Sun conjunct Venus does not accept love easily. (Hey, who doesn’t want love? Let it come to you already.) This is because it is still combust and is burnt out by the ego. You are most likely looking for praise and lots of attention.
Summer solstice arrives within 12 hours after the Full Moon. Since solstices are energetic gateways (effect starts on the June 19 and lasts to later on June 21.) Lots of emotional energy appears as the Sun moves into Cancer. Also the grand cross is part of the chart for the Solstice. Some countries which are affected strongly are Syria, Saudi Arabia and Turkey along with Moscow and eastern Brazil. Upheaval is a possibility.
With the Moon entering Capricorn not too long after the Full Moon in you may wish to use intuition instead of your cold hard facts right now since there may be confusion appearing. With the Sun entering Cancer at 6:32pm EDT it may be wise to stop clinging to the past already so that you can move forward more effectively with help from your roots. This a Full Moon just may tempt you go off path to somewhat forbidden zones. If you do, keep your head about you. There may be magic in the air.
The degrees most affected are: Gemini 25 -Cancer 3 degrees; Virgo 25-Libra 3 degrees; Sagittarius 25-Capricorn 3 degrees and Pisces 25-Aries 3 degrees. Approximate birthdays more intensely affected: June 16-June 24; September 19-27; December 17-25; and March 16-March 24.
I pulled a Butterfly card from Doreen Virtue’s card deck. It says it is about courage. “So, take positive action steps today toward your desired outcome, and know that you will have everything you need in each moment that follows.”
Many blessings as you experience the Full Moon energy. Allow the old to be released and new magic and miracles appear. Keep in balance as you walk your talk. Tune in Tuesday night at 9pm EDT for my show Going beyond Astrology:http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/. Thank you for reading and for all you are and do. Happy Solstice too!!! Love, Jan
June is bursting out all over. Roses are in bloom and the heat is out of control. I love summer when it is time for that season not before. Spring has been my time of year but many of you love the high heat that summer brings. And even in the mountains of the Northeast of the US has had temperatures higher than normal. Oh by the way, not sure what is happening here but the Sun seems to be moving more north than south as it should be at this time of year. You haven’t noticed? The weather man is leaving now. So are you ready to spring into action and take a leap with this New Moon that is about to arrive? Or are you transfixed with the Presidential candidates show for the masses? One day the truth will show up and many will shake in horror at the actuality of what is going on. It is always about truth and when it is present many lose friends and family and all the other things that may have been in one’s life due to the inability to shake off the lie of the mainstream. Will you be able to do so? And don’t forget to get enmeshed in the big game of NBA sham. Hey I love basketball but not when it is about a circus appearance. LeBron and the twelve year old Curry battling on the court – well he looks that age, doesn’t he?
Ok. Let’s move on to the New Moon in Gemini. It arrives June 4 2016 at 10:59pm EDT, 7:59pm PDT and on June 5 at 2:59am GMT in 14 degrees 53’. The Sun is also in the same degree in Gemini. I mentioned the truth in the beginning and this New Moon is all about seeing the reality of your life. Venus is conjunct the New Moon within 1 degree in the next couple of days. Is it love you feel or is Neptune deluding you? Is it money that is coming to you or is it just a pipe dream? What is it that is pulling you into a new reality? The last time Venus and the Sun were so close in a New Moon was back in August 15 of 2015. What happens when Venus and the dark of the moon come into contact before the New Moon? It is about burning off the residue of the past interactions, relationships, values and needs which are no longer resonating with you. Now moving forward the new energies appear so that everything can be reseeded with a new direction. Gemini is about the twins who are wishing to be together (soul mates) or looking for their own separate paths to come in union as life happens. Wherever Venus is working in your life is where this whole shining star will appear. It could be in the passionate love arena or in a new way of perceiving what is already present. Use the day of June 6 for major intention setting since Venus will be in superior conjunction. You may be surprised what comes about.
On the other hand this New Moon in Gemini is forming a mutable grand cross in the chart. And that indicates that fear may show up due to the following process. The grand cross is Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces, this New Moon in Gemini and Jupiter in Virgo along with the North and South nodes in Virgo and Pisces. Lots of combustible energy to deal with if you will allow it to affect you. If there was ever a time to have faith in the unknown then this energy is certainly it. So much is going on that you will find yourself spinning out of control (I think I started this a few months back in my own life) and the need to make a priority list. Oh yes. It will be a factor. Not to get into a fear place is the main thought here. Trust and faith is what it about. And also you may find yourself asking why you are pursuing this dream when it is so foggy that you cannot even see the rest of the road. Hopefully you will maneuver your way through this mist of Neptune. I suggest keeping your heart in the mix so that it leads you to your truth.
Much of what is happening with this Grand Cross is about purging the past and reshaping the structures in your life and your path. Of course there may be some swirling energy to contend with but it is for the best. Just allow it to do what it chooses so it can revamp your emotional outlook too by getting rid of old hang-ups. Whatever houses these planets fall in your natal blueprint will tell you what is being pushed and pulled to break free the energy so new influences can manifest. In my own chart the planets are in my 4th, 6th, 10th and 12th houses. This should be interesting as it continues on. This Gemini New Moon is part of this energetic door to open this Grand Cross and bring about a Venusian rebirth.
Chiron also has an effect with this New Moon in Gemini. Chiron is about woundedness yet with the ability to manifest healing. Since Asclepius asteroid is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius at present and will also have an impact in the grand cross. Asclepius is a healer as is Chiron so what surfaces can be brought to healing within you.
This New Moon with the Grand Cross involved is truly about being torn between what your duties are and passions (your career, your pleasure-seeking or your path). It can get out of control due to too many things going on and feeling you have to be there for everyone and everything, Stop right there. Find a balance please. This Moon with Venus is about peace and love. Can you find that in your life? Watch the Moon square Jupiter which can be a gambling effect. Also with Sun conjunct Venus it is overshadowing the good part and Venus now doesn’t know how to accept affection. Sun wants all the attention.
The New Moon in Gemini affects those with personal planets (Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Mercury) at 10-18 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Birthdays would be around May 30-June 8; September 1-9; December 2-10 and March 1-10. This New Moon in Gemini is as powerful as eclipse moons.
I pulled several cards from the Pages of Shustah deck and this is what they said about the New Moon influences for you:
The Harmonizing Page says it’s important to take time to relax and recharge your batteries, even though you are fired up with enthusiasm for my new project. You will create even more from a place of relaxation and harmony.
The Angel of Spring is the time of new beginnings, and that finally, the blockages are removed to make a way forward. There is joy with this Angel, and fresh starts available.
The Yellow Chalice is about emotional birth/rebirth. And it can also ask how full is the cup?
There is much more to say but I will add some other interesting influences on my radio show Going Beyond Astrology on June 7 at 9pm EDT. Thank you for reading and please share if you will. Have an outstanding New Moon and lots of joy to you. Until Again. Love, Jan
Have you gotten on track yet? Full Moon is almost here. Seems like there is so much confusion going on in many places and lots of craziness with those retrograde planets which are saying clear out, slow down, take another look and keep moving forward. Right! Feels like swimming underwater coming up for air every so often. And this whole economy is drastically in need of a revamping. Of course this is a time that you are given the opportunity to change your thinking about what is happening with the whole money thing which includes the personal view, the country-wide and world view. Yes, it has to change and the time is in the next few years or a major wake-up call will show up. And believe me it won’t be pretty. The Jupiter/Saturn square is exact on May 26, 2016 and that is the last quarter of the cycle that began 20 years ago. So, new monetary practices have to be implemented now in the next few years so a wake-up call can be avoided down the road. Will I place my money on it? Just make some preparations…and for the moment…how about taking a deep breath and be still before the moon is full this time?
So, it has been a time of some things unraveling and many of you are at a crossroads. The Full Moon in Sagittarius with the Sun in Gemini comes around on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 5:14pm EDT, 2:14pm PDT and 9:14pm GMT at 1 degree 13’. This Full Moon is about truth rather than what is right or wrong in your world. Truth transcends it all. Since it is a fire sign Full Moon it is quick to the point. Close to the Scorpio sign it also waits until just the right moment to jump forward into a fiery burst of energy. It is a kind of what you see is what you get type of energy. No matter how much you disbelieve what you see, guess what, it is probably real. Oh boy, you never know what can be going on. And that is truth.
Full Moon in Sagittarius wants to travel for some time finding that vision that is so important to it. Yet the Gemini Sun is saying look in this moment and see the here and now. It is this polarity of the full moon that pushes your desire to look for the facts versus following that inspiration. Which will you do? This will be a major point to consider in the next couple of weeks. And guess what – Mars retrograde in Sagittarius is sitting right on the Full Moon bursting through with pent up anger. You need to let go the emotional focus that hangs around you from the past. Mars also gives you the impetus to take a leap after thinking about the intention. Slow going but does occur. Watch impatience. Since you are moving out of the past think about what you were doing back in June of 2015 when Mars last conjoined the Sun. It may give you some ideas about what needs to be done. And do watch for emotional flashbacks or those old domestic minefields of your childhood days.
With the Sun opposing Mars it can make you very competitive to the point of taking risks that are not really needed. Don’t get pulled into someone else’s egotistical taunting. It may be best to pull back and just be in the stillness of your own environment.
The asteroid Vesta is trying to purify your mind as it conjuncts the Sun in Gemini. It is asking you to watch your words carefully now for they can either harm or heal. Take time to focus. On the other hand with it opposing the Moon in Sagittarius it can avoid your own feeling by overworking at your job or otherwise.
Mercury has been retrograde since late April and will go direct on Sunday, May 22, 2016. Communication with others will improve considerably. As mentioned before watch that unruly Mars energy which can take you into a battle of wills. It is now in a grand trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. It is time to see what really is important to you.
Now let your curiosity be a part of your thinking. Life is so short for you to let it pass you by. Yet with your focus on social media, TV, politics, mainstream anything you have no time for finding your truth because it is dictated to you. How many know what path you walk? Have you thought about it? Open your mind to the workings of the Universe so that you can see the wonders of who you are and where that leap is taking you.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius most intensely affects the degrees of Taurus 26 deg.-Gemini 4 deg; Le 26 deg – Virgo 4 deg; Scorpio 26 deg – Sagittarius 4 deg; and Aquarius 26 deg- Pisces 4 deg. Also if you have any personal planets in those degree areas they also will be affected. Birthdays most intensely affected are May 18-May 26; August 18-August 26; November 18-November 26; and February 18-February 26.
Some tidbits for the Sun signs/Rising signs:
Aries-Be persistent but patient with going forward. Intense times! It is about a big vision for your future.
Taurus – Flow with the energy that is affecting your transformation and intimacy. Time to let go and you will adapt.
Gemini – Wow! Distractions are all over the place. Keep exploring as more distractions are stirred up. Keep your focus.
Cancer – Whatever is happening in your life is giving your practice for new possibilities and chances which are going to show up. Pay attention.
Leo – You feel like you are being held back. What is important to you at this time? Please listen to your heart now. It keeps you on track.
Virgo – It is time to get back to basics. The Moon falls in your house of Roots/foundation. Find your priorities and take them to the next level.
Libra – You are somewhat easy going now. If you stop trying to control everything you may begin to enjoy more. Count your blessings.
Scorpio – In the house of self-esteem you are looking for a connection between communication and intimacy. Others are not interested and can stir the pot a bit. Put the talk off for now.
Sagittarius – May be a time to just relax and be. Stop worrying about every little thing. And what does it matter right now? Watch for minor differences. Chill!!!
Capricorn – Who supports your dreams? Only that individual will have the experience of you opening your heart. Let the conversation take you where it wants to go. You may be surprised.
Aquarius – Do you always have to lead? At present it may be good for you to support the dreams of those who are your friends. That may bring more emotional fulfillment.
Pisces – If someone needs your help be compassionate and do it. Even in helping you need to create health boundaries.
Wishing you all blessings and joy for the Full Moon energy. Stay in the moment and find your truth. Will be back on Going Beyond Astrology in the next couple of weeks. Love, Jan
And the New Moon has arrived. What goodies will it bring you? Well, at the present time the craziness of election year gets even more so. Is there a revolution coming? Or is there something else going on? Also, the Belgium population has been given iodine pills in case of a dirty bomb attack. Two nuclear plants are leaking –one in Florida and one at Indian Point in New York. And the media is worried about what bathrooms you need to use. Wake up! Everything and anything is going on right now. And slowing down is the word of the next weeks. Five planets are retrograde and if you haven’t noticed yet, I am sure somewhere in your life you will soon feel it. Mercury just went retrograde last week. And Pluto, Saturn and Mars are going backwards for a few months. Jupiter goes into forward motion on the 10th of May. Yay! This brings us a time of looking in the rear view mirror so we can move forward as you clear out and leftover patterns, thoughts, habits and junk that no longer serves your purpose.
And the New Moon in Taurus arrived today on May 6, 2016 at 3:29pm EDT, 12:29 PDT and 7:29pm GMT in 16 degrees 41’. It is a Supermoon. Sun is also in Taurus at same degree. As I spoke about on my radio show last week Taurus is about the material world and your own resources along with self-worth. It is also about the five senses. Taurus loves to use them all as in touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell. If you start listening to your body and your heart you will know what your soul truly needs to flourish in the coming days. I have followed Louise Hay for years now and if you correlate what she has said to what your body is saying to you…then your answer appears. Did you ever think that maybe that sinus issue is saying that something or someone is irritating you? Or what do you think about your back pain? Could it be someone is on your back or maybe the lower back pain is telling you that you are concerned about money? Or even that sore throat may say to you that you are failing to express yourself regarding a particular issue. If you start paying attention to your body and your heart you may change your life for the better. And this New Moon would be the perfect time to begin the journey to come from the heart and move yourself in a new direction and even do some emotional clean-up work.
Taurus is about your values. What do you value the most? Try making a list or create some kind of mandala with your choice words for what is important to you. It takes the energy that you have been using to light that Aries fire and use it in more material ways. But Taurus New Moon isn’t just about the material world. It is about your self-worth and sensuality. It is about Mother Earth and doing things that help her. It is a time to trust your hunches as you move toward a better life. This Taurus New Moon is about looking at reevaluating what really makes you happy. It forms a trine with Jupiter and the Virgo North Node and also with Pluto in Capricorn, as well as a wide sextile with Neptune in Pisces. This suggests many channels for expressing ourselves. If you haven’t been doing so, time to step up to the plate and say what’s on your mind.
Jupiter is definitely about expansion. And since it turns direct from its retrograde motion in the next few days (as mentioned above) it is a time to clear out any leftover perceptions of the world or others around you. Have you done that?
On May 9th Mercury is exactly conjunct the Sun and Moon in Taurus. More deliberate communication is going on in the days preceding and until June 12. Of course, remember also that Mercury in Taurus is retrograde until May 22. How has the Mercury retrograde madness affected you? Down the road I may share the crazy effects but now I will let it be. This is a time for tried and true thinking rather than new views since Mercury is in Taurus. The best thing with retrograde Mercury is to reorganize and reflect. If you are clear in all your communication and writings you will find this a beneficial time.
New Moon in Taurus is trine Pluto in Capricorn is about a few things. One may be an obsession with taboo topics. It can indicate a natural inclination to psychology. But some may use it to manipulate. If you are trying to market a product you may find this aspect beneficial. Pluto is trine the Sun in Taurus also. With Pluto involved you are looking to research every possible aspect of turning darkness into a creative project.
This New Moon is also so sensuous that you may just get that massage which you keep putting off. It is a great time for healing hands. If you do gardening there is no better time. It is also a good time to throw a party or do some business dealing.
Those most intensely affected are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius 13 – 21 degrees. That would indicate birthdays May 3-May 12; August 3-12; November 3-12 and February 3-12.
A few tidbits for the Sun signs/Rising signs:
Aries-Where are you heading? It is wiser to stay your course at this time. Be more efficient with your resources as to where you are spending.
Taurus-Have you decided on a new direction? Whatever the decision you make you need to stick to it totally for the successful outcome to appear.
Gemini-Watch where you are headed at this time! If you are unsure of exactly what you choose. Then please do nothing than regret later.
Cancer-New Moon in 11th house is talking about your long-term goals and saying to be quite bold in how you think right now. Take time to plan.
Leo-Right now it is better to implement some plan on your path then to just sit around wishing for it to happen. Success will come if you complete the project.
Virgo- Are you thinking about going back to school to further your education? Or you may just decide to take a trip that is more in line with education.
Libra- Are you looking to form a deep alliance with someone? It may be fortunate for
you to do so. Just don’t give everything up.
Scorpio- You can entertain the thoughts of a supportive relationship as long as you set aside those fears that keep popping up. Be vulnerable already.
Sagittarius-You want the new project to begin but only if it meets your conditions. New Moon in 6th house says to keep it simple in whatever you do.
Capricorn- You may want to change how you approach the plan but keep the goal in mind. It is to create but don’t go rushing off impulsively.
Aquarius- Do you feel emotionally safe? If so build on something that is already there.
Stay in a stable mode for the time being.
Pisces- This new moon is about the simple truth in the communication house. Be in the real word right now. Imagination comes back.
Thank you for reading. Share if you will. Full Moon in Sagittarius comes in 2 weeks. I will be back on the SGN Going Beyond Astrology radio show on May 24. Have a happy Mother’s Day to all those wonderful ladies out there. Stay tuned. Until again. Love, Jan
Well this is certainly going to be a time of going deep within and who knows what you will find when you enter the cavern of self. The last month has been reeling with erratic energy, dramatic changes. Shifting within and without and around about has been distracting some of you, disrupting others and then those who know how to stay calm within the murky waters that keep washing upon them have got the puzzle at least under control to some extent. Looking around me I see so many immersed in the Aries syndrome of self. Hey, do you see me here? No answer because no one really wants to interact. Me and more me! That’s quite all right. Mars loves to create a bit of energetic swashbuckling among the mainstream. Have you noticed? Or have you gotten swept up by the winds of April?
It is time for the Full Moon in Scorpio to arrive. What does it wish to share with you? This is yet another moon ruled by dear old Mars. I know Pluto rules Scorpio who went retrograde on April 18 does have an effect and so does Mr. Mars in Sagittarius and he went retrograde on April 17. It is the start of his journey backwards digging up the dirt that you tried to hide and revamping your thinking so that you can get it right this time around. It is another Super Moon.
Before I delve a bit into the wondrousness of this intensely sexy Full Moon in Scorpio let’s look at the details. It occurs in 2 degrees 30’ of Scorpio at 1:23 am EDT on April 22, 2016; 10:23pm PDT;(April 21) and 5:23am GMT (April 22). What is the change of direction going to be about? The Full Moon is always about balancing the Yin and Yang. This Scorpio Moon and the Sun in Taurus at 2degrees 30’ is asking you to balance the practical with your passionate approach. As I said previously this Full Moon is about seeing how well you are moving forward with the intentions that you set at the New Moon in Aries. If it is not working than you may have to revamp and change direction. Taurus Sun says to you that the senses—all five of them (sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch) are important. At times you may forget to breathe deeply and enjoy the feelings that come from the senses. To Taurus it is also about your worth, in fact, divine worth. It is material yet it is ruled by spirit. Who did you hug today? Did you taste something delicious or hear a sound so soothing? That is a deep part of the Taurus influence. How did you think about that investment in making it better for your worth?
On the other hand Scorpio Full Moon is about the depths of passion or aversions? Since it is a water sign It likes to ponder the depths of feelings and fears. And it does get carried away at times with investigating those motivations looking for the deepest hunger and darkest fear. Scorpio does eventually come to the realization that no matter what is happening it does come to a place of love and light and does survive. This FULL MOON in Scorpio is about releasing the tensions around your sexuality and any dominance/power issues. How many of you can look and see the patterns that are surfacing in your lives? Since there are no important aspects to the Full Moon it all falls on the ruler which is Mars and unfortunately as I stated it is retrograde. What’s going to come to a head at this Super moon? There is one other fixed star which is conjunct the Full Moon and that is Antares. It is found in Scorpio and it is just some more intensity added to the whole scene. Giant red star Antares is about extremist views.
This Scorpio Full Moon is 6 months after the New Moon in Scorpio of November 2015. It is like a look at how you have been doing all these months and where it has taken you with the goal/intentions. It is also a financial makeover so if you have been on track it will definitely pay off down the road.
Scorpio Full Moon is a dark one. Oh yes. He is truly the Scorpion with the sting. Yet I feel that it is a time that the darkness that has enveloped many will now turn to light even when it comes to you differently at first. Scorpio loves to know the truth and it does reveal itself for better or worse with this Full Moon. What you see may not be the truth.
Mars is saying to reevaluate your sexual relationships. Some may be totally fearful of anything that is sexual. Others may have to deal with a competitor in business. From April 18- May 28 Mars will be in retrograde motion in Sagittarius. Mars here will bring high drama. This is a very impulsive position. You could indeed hit the bulls eye, but at what cost? Watch for when the Moon activates Antares on April 25 and May 22. Danger lurks. May 28-June 30 Mars will be in Decan 3 of Scorpio retrograding. Mars here feels connected and protective of its territory. Your Instincts are sharp, with the great gift stalking invisibly. Mars here can sense danger well in advance, but is often labeled paranoid because if it. The red planet turns retrograde about every 2 years. The planets energy is turning itself upside down in a sense, so we get the opportunity to view things from another angle. It will start off at 8º Sagittarius, a fire sign no less, and then travel back to 23º Scorpio, a sign it rules. It is much more intense in Scorpio.
Do pay attention dear ones. Scorpio wants what he wants and Taurus wants what she wants. Uh oh! Now what do you do? Power play is the name of the game. Taurus Sun rules your resources. It describes what you value ranging from physical possessions and money, to personal self-esteem and talents. Taurus rules your personal earnings, bankers, budgets, money you make, value system, monetary gains and losses, security. Scorpio rules the support you receive from other people. It rules wealth of your spouse or partner, spirituality, insurance, legacies, other people’s money, stocks, taxes, inheritances and transformation.
How does Venus, the ruler of Taurus fit in here? Venus loves to listen, nurture, and beautify. Venus stimulates your social and love life but can be quite variable in effect. It is conjunct Uranus in Aries at this time of the Full Moon but is off by itself. The Venus Uranus conjunction can bring exciting romances with enough personal freedom to enjoy a glamorous social life. Though watch for instability with your finances if you have negative aspects.
Pluto, the higher octave ruler of Scorpio, attracts crisis and volatility. Pluto lives in the subconscious, particularly in the caverns we avoid. This makes the scorpion quite unpredictable. Also Pluto is going retrograde (April 18th – September 26th), setting out a period of detoxing issues around sexuality, power and the subconscious.
The Full Moon in Scorpio affects most intensely those with personal planets in 27 degrees of Libra – 4 degrees of Scorpio; 27 degrees of Capricorn – 4 degrees of Aquarius; 27 degrees of Aries – 4 degrees of Taurus and 27 degrees of Cancer – 4 degrees of Leo.
Thank you for reading and sharing if you will. Check out my Going Beyond Astrology radio show on the Spiritual Guidance Network. Have a great full moon. Until again, Love, Jan
Calling out to the New Moon in Aries. Can the weather get any weirder? My head is spinning with the anomalies of the forecast. One day it is 70 degrees and the next night it is 32 degrees. Did anyone see Spring arrive? Didn’t we just experience the Spring Equinox a few weeks ago? Not sure what is going on here. Is it manufactured or is it Mother Nature having a tantrum? March Madness was capped off the other night. Anyone see it. I was glued to the TV when I should have been doing a lot more other work. And guess what it was the best ending of any Championship game in NCAA history and my team won at the buzzer. Villanova beat North Carolina. How proud to be a Wildcat. It is better than the political agenda that doesn’t go away and will continue to hound us until November. Trump is talking about how this country will be in a recession soon; and Hilary is getting nervous about Bernie. Life in America goes on.
Soon to arrive at our beck and call is the New Moon in Aries (Sun is also in Aries) which comes to us on Thursday, April 7, 2016 at; 7:23am EDT; 4:23am PDT and 11:23am GMT in 18 degrees 04’. This New Moon is conjunct within a degree of Uranus in Aries. Aren’t we all lucky? Well, it isn’t about luck this time it is about the unusual, the shock factor, and the rebellious nature of the energy of this New Moon. What can turn your actions around to better give you an opportunity to take a leap forward? What can show up in your life to create a thought for a new way of doing something? This is about all of you finding a way to blaze that trail once and for all. Don’t be too surprised when Uranus fires up your world with a surprise. Are you going to go with it or is it going to jolt you?
With the Sun and Moon both in Aries which is ruled by Mars it is a time to seek out a fresh start. Some say that this NEW MOON is the real beginning of the year. But before that happens those eclipses are still in effect for many months. It is still about a bit of getting rid of clutter. Have you been doing so? It has been prodding you to give up the old junk that clutters your life. How many of you have let it all go yet? C’mon, the truth please. Are you still hanging in the past? Have you looked within yourself and truly let the past go? Are you ignoring the signs and continue to tweet or play on your phone or Facebook? I know it may be very threatening to you to give that stuff up for a moment so that you can actually see what is happening within. And then the New Moon in Aries can help you take a walk for a change in forward motion. But wait a minute there are many planets going to be going retrograde and then what will you do? (More on that later)
You all know what Aries are like- sort of me first, my way and the commando. Aries may be a bit self-centered but they hide nothing. He tells all no matter what it is. Aries is truly impulsive. And if Aries really messes up no one that I know has the nerve to tell him. Aries Moon doesn’t listen well because he is already waiting to tell what he thinks. Aries teaches us courage and the will to overcome any obstacles. Aries is assertive, honest, feisty, enthusiastic and independent and meets life head-on.
And Uranus hanging right with the New Moon may spring an unexpected occurrence. It tells the Moon to get some imaginative power going and go invent something new. Even if you choose to shock someone it will be uncomfortable for you to deal with it afterwards. Then along with this outrageous behavior old boy Mr. Change artist, Pluto is squaring the New Moon (in conflict) and it is totally drawn into the emotional realm. If you experience love, all I can say is it will be deeper than you imagined. Of course if someone looks to control or dominate, oh well, here comes ice. Watch how you interact if you are in a relationship! Just let it flow and it will definitely show up on the higher level.
New Moon trine Saturn in Sagittarius gives a great balance of intuition and realism. The sensitive moon and severe Saturn do not usually make easy bedfellows, but the trine warms and soften things here nicely. Personal security is the theme. Moon trine Saturn is about trustworthiness and capability. You will look after your money responsibly since this aspect tends to be thrifty. Those touched by this New moon could suddenly find they have a great sense of timing just knowing the opportune moment to do something. Things can feel a bit fated. Previous efforts may bring recognition. Understanding and respect will help you reach your goals.
Mars goes retrograde on April 17. Many things in your life will slow down to a crawl. Refrain from buying mechanical items when it is in backward motion.
Wherever the NEW MOON in ARIES falls in your natal chart will give you a good indication as to what part of your life will be affected. In my chart it is in my 11th house of friends/groups/wishes. It can bring a new paradigm or vision which emerges and take me out in the world even more so. Or it can bring about a big wish that may come about unexpectedly.
Aries-Enormous energy must be expressed. Watch so you don’t change things too quickly. Be aware and don’t go off the deep end with your boss.
Taurus-Is there a self-defeating problem that you need to address once again? You need more time for yourself, do some dream work, being in nature or mind/body/spirit work.
Gemini-Are you going to something that is totally uncharacteristic of your normal behavior? That friend who you forgot about may show up or there may be sudden changes with the friendship.
Cancer- Don’t push against anything. Look at how you express your feelings and your needs. Unstable career area influences. You can make a new start in some way.
Leo-This is time to teach, travel and explore even with the chaotic energy showing up in your life. One of these things can change your life for the better in a flash.
Virgo- Unforeseen romantic and financial opportunities can reveal themselves. Look for innovative solutions for any surprises that show up. Keep an eye on finances. Pleasure!
Libra-Watch for power struggles at home which can cause tension. New people may enter your life. Someone helps you with your self-doubt or helps with a decision.
Scorpio-What do you need to change about your health or work habits? Get those changes in the works. If you are looking for a new job put out intentions to manifest it.
Sagittarius-You will feel the frenzy within as the fiery energy shows up. You feel you want to break free. Some obsessing takes place. This vibe is present with children’s interests and love.
Capricorn-You tend to review your current connections and stir up a transformative effect. Persevere with integrity. What changes do you wish to create in your home?
Aquarius-Is there a change of mood or change of mind to come in some plan? Will what
you want to do provoke objection from others? Meetings and social activities start the ball rolling.
Pisces- What just happened? A sudden windfall can turn your world upside down. Watch impulsive financial urges to throw money around. Relook at your values.
This New Moon is about finding a new personal identity to take you forward in unusual ways. The changes you have been working on are finally coming into the forefront. Be your unique self and create leaps in new ways.
