FULL MOON in Aries, October 15/16 2016-Will you resist or flow with the changes and unexpected chaos?
With the Full Moon in Aries coming up later on tonight if you are looking for drama you just may get it. It might be a good idea to reconnect your heart and mind. Stand in your truth as you also stand up for others reconciling the balance of opposites. Onward!!
Here we go again. Life in this USA is getting crazier by the moment. Nothing seems to stand in the way of the candidates putting on a reality show of disdain, name-calling, accusations, lies, and any other thing you can think of. Is this really happening or have I been transported to another place in the universe? What a joke!! If you think this is weird then wait until you see everything that is coming to our grand land. And the joke is on you!!! Fear-mongering by the mainstream media is so boring and ridiculous. How many of you actually believe them? If you do, wow, I missed something in the last years. Dear ones, I am asking you to wake up because life will not be the same if you allow this charade to continue. And I am not talking about the mundane that may infiltrate your daily living. I am speaking of your freedom. Those in charge are desperate and have begun to come apart at the seams. So what can you do to bring back a real country of true values, spirituality and support for you? Enough said. Please wake up or it may shake you awake.
The Full Moon in Aries is upon us. And it is about bringing the harmony back into your life. Of course there are many aspects which will affect that process. Full Moon in Aries and Sun in Libra are exact on Sunday, October 16, 2016 at 12:23 am EDT; 9:23 pm PDT (October 15); and 4:23 am GMT in 23 degrees 14’. This Aries Full Moon is conjunct Uranus in Aries (22 degrees 28’ retrograde) and Eris. And these two energies combined with this Full Moon say change is needed in a big way. Aries is always about new beginnings and warrior-like tendencies if you choose to look at in a basic way.
And now as Eris a dwarf star comes into the picture along with Uranus, the intensity is in your face. It is imperative that you and those around you know the truth as to what is going on with the world. Eris is a feminine type who is Mars’ (ruler of Aries) sister and the Goddess of discord. But she really is looking for change and reform. Eris was discovered in 2003. And guess what Eris says the feminine within has a right to be and not be subjugated to others for their benefit or pleasure. If rage shows up Eris says hey, it is part of the inner you and in balance; it is there for a reason.
Along with the need for change it is about honoring all kinds of life forms. On the opposite side there is Libra Sun conjunct Haumea. Libra is about being true to who you are and also respecting others around you. Libra is also about balance and harmonious interactions. Haumea is looking for spiritual understanding within and with others and has a sense for a type of knowing, and is about celebrating the Divine. It may bring us back to being real women and real men again. The fashion scene is boring as anything and the pornographic talk and all the rest of what is going on soon will be in for a rude awakening. Of course there are always those who will try to create more of the same and the same and coming to your life soon the world will find a new consciousness because it no longer works and the energy is so far out of alignment.
With the Full Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries this says there is rebel energy present. The Full Moon is definitely chaotic, electric and quite crazy. Oh, do you really need this? Well, some do. And you may see those around you acting out…well, guess what…they may just being their true selves. Well, they can be if they choose!!! Right? It is not a good time to suppress any anger. So express yourself. Also, it is quite a passionate Full Moon so it is either good or not so good for relationships. You choose the way it is. This is a time to see you in the other and vice versa.On another note the Full Moon can show up with unexpected changes which may not be to your liking. It could also be a disrupter in a relationship or take it in a different direction. Will you resist the changes that may come about or will you give it a chance to take you to another way forward? That is definitely up to you.
Another aspect that is affecting the energy of the Full Moon in Aries is Pluto in Capricorn which is at 16 degrees Capricorn and coming on the tail of the Full Moon in a couple of days is Mars in Capricorn catching up with Pluto on October 19.This is a volatile energy and can be used for changing your life or destroying it. Is there conflict in your life? Are you creating it or is someone else doing so? It is a tension of opposites and it is time to be your truth and come from your heart. Oh one positive thought…Venus enters Sagittarius on the 18th so there may be lighthearted romance in the air.
The most intensely affected are the following birthdays: Libra/October 11-18; Capricorn/January 9-16; Aries/April 10-17; and Cancer/July 10-17. If you have planets at or near the degrees affected in those signs then you will also feel the intensity in some way. A few thoughts at the Full Moon for the Signs/Rising Signs-
Aries-Are others creating chaos? Lots of shaking going on. Take a walk or get a massage. Is there lesson?
Taurus- Whatever surfaces from your inner workings sit with it and gently let it go. Let the shifting within happen.
Gemini-What can you do in a different way? What you want to do and what you ought to do is the question. BE true to you is the answer.
Cancer- Changes may appear in what you do for a living. In the long term it will work if you stay grounded. Think before acting.
Leo- If your beliefs are restricting you then maybe you need to challenge them and let go. Someone may say something and you see things differently.
Virgo- If you have any unhealthy habits or dependency then something will disrupt the flow. You will feel the power within if you focus on talents.
Libra- Will you allow other’s behavior to affect you? Some positive developments may occur and if so keep moving forward.
Scorpio-What can you change in your health or work life? It will not be good to rush aimlessly forward. Take a breath and nourish your inner self.
Sagittarius- How have you been expressing yourself lately? Let go of things that are not yours to carry. Is there a new direction on the table? Dare to be different.
Capricorn- What from past shows up? Disrupting forces in home or family area. Stop trying to keep things the way they are. Don’t let the upsets keep you off course.
Aquarius- Time to shift thinking and see things from different viewpoint. Is a habitual response holding you back? Let go of it and feel the freedom. What are you waiting for?
Pisces- Flexibility is the keyword this time around. Be detached no matter what shows up. House of Money/Finance are in the limelight. Break free from old thinking.
Full Moon in Aries will definitely change something in your life. It is a Supermoon and it brings unexpected things to the forefront. Thank you for reading and best wishes and blessings for whatever comes in. Tune in on Tuesdays to my radio show Going Beyond Astrology at 9pm EDT on SGN. Keep purging the old. Until again. Love, Jan
Uh oh. How do we get past the power struggle that may show up with the New Moon in Libra who very much wants harmony to be present? How do we move through the conflicting energy when Pluto in Capricorn asks to shift something so you finally can move forward and Mars in Capricorn will be pushing for battle? Keep that in mind for a few minutes as I look at some other worldly stuff going on.
EBS sent out message yesterday which I saw on TV on my way to go to Yankees game. Then it is saying today the train crash in Hoboken was a drill. Absolutely ridiculous! The Hilary email scandal is getting hot and heavy. Keep your eyes open, dear ones, because this is not going away. But then again you may not even care about it. It is only this country that is in peril. Oh well. Just another day in the neighborhood! Seems like the a certain Infantry division of the Marines was called back the other day and North Carolina is on Alert. Who would have guessed that the rioters in Charlotte were bussed in? Wonders never cease in this debacle. And will the election take place. I have listened to and read about so many scenarios that those who have some inner sense or not say that it may not happen. And Russia continues to be in the limelight. Nothing further needs saying now. Wake up to who you are and life will continue on in so many good ways. Follow the crowd and nothing is promised. It is going to get really “hot’ out there soon. Please pay attention.
The New Moon is in Libra (both Sun and Moon are conjunct) on September 30/October 1, 2016 at 8:11 pm EDT, 5:11 pm PDT, and 12:11 am GMT in 8 degrees 15’. The New Moon is always about looking where you have come from and where you are going. Since it is in Libra as I said in the opening that it is about harmonious interaction and balance since Libra is about both. How do you balance your need for freedom and your wish for connection? Do you choose to control or are you compliant? Are you interested in interacting in a balanced co-creative way, tuned into the other individual? What you put out there is what you will get in return. And remember this is a Black Moon since the month has 2 new moons. Energy is a bit more intense than normal.
Libra is about the opposite side. Who you are and who the other individual is has Libra’s name on it. It is about coming together with everything and integrating the aspects of the selves that are different. If you have disowned parts of yourself then you will attract that to you in stronger measures than you may choose. What I am talking about is the patterns, the beliefs and any disharmony you may have. Yet on the other hand you may also repulse them. That is, of course, up to you.
Old Mars just went into Capricorn on September 27 and will square this New Moon. Mars in Capricorn is more disciplined and helps you go forward but it does not like the New Moon in Libra. It is looking for a fight. Ugh. And will you be the one to start it with your boss or your partner? Mars doesn’t let down. So watch your actions in the next couple of weeks. And also the transformer Pluto in Capricorn at 14 degrees is also squaring the New Moon in Libra. That is saying to you if you are trying to control or manipulate someone or a situation…or the other individual is doing it to you, look out for a major power struggle. If you don’t want a break up wherever it is touching your chart do stop the fighting. It may well be your shadow side which shows up here. Stop it before it creates chaos that is not to your liking.
Jupiter is conjunct the Sun and Moon in Libra. Remember, when Jupiter transits your ascendant you can easily…I mean very easily put on weight. This is especially true if Jupiter is hitting the natal ascendant, Sun, Moon, or Venus. Watch for overeating and sleeping too darn much. And of course, those drinks go down pretty easily right now for the next year. Keep an eye on your intake if you don’t want to see the expansion in your body.
It suggests you look at how you are relating and what is the role you tend to play in your intimate relationships. Get through some of those obstacles you keep putting up and walk through them as you see the truth. Maybe you can be kinder, more joyful and loving with this New Moon. And don’t forget to forgive too!!! Those already in a relationship can bring more optimistic interactions if you stay positive. Even those who are not in a relationship can intend one coming to you. Think of what you can offer to that relationship.
The New Moon is sextile Saturn in Sagittarius. Watch what you believe since it will have a big influence on your current place in life. A new paradigm can come through especially in your interactions with others. Will you go with it?
Sun was exactly conjunct Jupiter on September 26 and continues to be there as the New Moon takes place. Go within and let the spirit of the real you arise from the depths. Let go of blame. Compassion would be a great thing to show right now in an honest way. Let your horizons broaden at this time.
Even if you aren’t going to be feeling the effects of Jupiter’s transit of Libra in a big way, Jupiter is always benefits you in some way. You will still want to look to the house of your natal chart that Jupiter will be moving over to see where there’s potential for success and where you may be able to take advantage of the good vibes. If you are willing to take a chance in the romance arena in the next 2 weeks until the Full Moon then I suggest no matter what goes on, even if there is a bit of the power thing or otherwise, it will help you grow in a major way and that if good. So go out there and relate. Get out of the house and socialize and have some fun. It will be good for you in the long run.
Under any Pluto transit, we feel pressured to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. When Pluto is transiting retrograde, we are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, rigid emotions; a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning.
The final week of September wraps up with Pluto entering a direct phase, and a Libra New Moon. Both of these influences are a green light go ahead. After many highs and lows, and several months of snags, September ends on a high note. September 26 at 11:01am EDT is when Pluto went direct. It will start to move t things forward in your life. Pluto is in Capricorn which means that something outwardly tangible is coming from this transit. As Pluto is in action running just won’t do. Hopefully you have changed what needed to changed and alter your reactions. There may be other Pluto stuff coming at you but you will be able to move past if you did take the time to purge out the old behaviors and beliefs. Many of you may have faced difficult ordeals in the past 5 months.
And don’t forget to make your intentions clear. Write them out (10 at most) and look at them in the morning and at night. What are you looking to create in your life? New Moons energize those intentions and you never know what just might show up. If you have a Libra rising sign/ascendant then you need to watch for new opportunities to show up when Jupiter crosses the rising sign into the first house in your chart.
Most intensely affected are birthdays which are Aries, March 26- April 3; Cancer, June 24-July 1; Libra, September 26-October 3 and Capricorn, December 26-January 3.

FULL MOON Lunar Eclipse in Pisces, September 16, 2016-Find a way to cut the anger and irritability so things can shift
I don’t know how your days were this week but a couple days ago mine was crazed. I had no time to look and see what the energy was like before I left the house but I wish I had checked. I have never encountered such aggression in drivers, delays in action, and just plain weird events. Well I did see this today and it totally makes complete sense. Mercury Retrograde in Virgo square Mars in Sagittarius characterized a quite fiery and impatient day. Were you looking for a quick fix like I was…well you may have felt like I did with all kinds of roadblocks and stuck in the muck energy. A good example is when I was getting on the turnpike to come back to my home I encountered a woman in a Mercedes who was being quite impatient waiting in line at the tollbooth. So she decides to start backing up and since I was not able to do this as there was a car in back of me…she was pushing. And I beeped my horn. She kept saying get out of my way. So I did and moved into the other lane where 2 cars were ahead of me…and she beeps her horn as she sits now behind me…and then takes off like a bat out of hell, give me a very unkind sign and speeds through another lane. In the meantime I am sitting waiting because the guy two cars ahead of me says no tickets are coming out of machine. Oh my. Well, I waited and for once was patient and a lady came by and gave me a ticket. Yes, Mercury square Mars was right on with its energy. And it still continues on a short while. Your mind may see what needs to be said, but you could wind up blurting it out before you’ve had a chance to choose your words more carefully. Figure out what you really want, and when you feel a bit calmer and more grounded then speak. If you have been inhibited now may be the time to make the move toward solving something.
As the full moon in Pisces approaches with its lunar eclipse accompanying it is time of intense intricacies of letting go, purging and finally getting ready to look for a restart in many ways. Since the Solar Eclipse New Moon took place on Sept.1 life has been very interesting. How many of you have taken a look deeper than usual within yourself? Have any of you actually let go of all the junk that keeps you from taking big leaps forward. I know…I sound like a broken record but in order for you to do what you came to do you need to be free of the craziness of the past whether in relationships, the work place, family or whatever part of your life that keeps you stuck. So have you considered this at all? Have you worked on allowing your true spirit to come forward to begin the trek again? Ask the angels and the Divine for help to do this.
This particular lunar eclipse Full Moon in Pisces is another doozy. It takes place Friday, September 16, 2016 at 3:05pm EDT, 12:05 PDT and 7:05 GMT in 24 degrees 19’ Pisces. Sun is at the exact degree in Virgo. With this being an eclipse it is telling you it is about taking big leaps on your soul’s path. It accents the motivations you have that are below the surface. Think back to September 16, 1997 and see what was the main focus in your life. Is that particular issue still bothering you? Have you learned from what was going on in your life? Have you built upon the good that surrounded you at that time?
It is truly about healing the disconnect you have between feminine and masculine energy. Also says how about healing the imbalance between head and heart. It is very much telling you to stop the fear existence within and bring out love to others. Stop pushing others away and start interconnecting with those in your realm and out of your realm. The Full Moon is aspecting Chiron in Pisces and also square Mars in Sagittarius. That is saying time has come to let go of all those beliefs that have been thrust upon you from the patriarchal system which thrives in this world. The deception that has sprung from this has to be released so you can feel the authentic love of both yourself and others. Don’t you wish to be the self that the Divine intended you to be? For some it may turn into a very romantic time if you keep love shining and stay away from any critical remarks. And please suppress that need to be a know-it-all or it will bring much drama. Do you really need that? Anger may pull on you. How about maybe actually clear out any emotional baggage that has been hanging on for the past 6 months. What do you say? Are you still frustrated? Well, what will you do about it? Find a way to stop reacting and being so irritable.
And then there also is ol’ feisty Mars in Sagittarius trining (good aspect) to Uranus in Aries as this lunar eclipse takes place. Hey, dear ones, it’s saying that you are going to say it anyway, so emotional expression is highlighted and you know Mars…leap first, think about it later. So, what do you need to say these next weeks with gentleness? What are you failing to reveal? You will do so, you know. So get it out there with tact.
What else can you do …pay attention to your dreamland. You may get signs or symbols of importance. Could be the answer you are looking for! Be more compassionate. Write some poetry to a lover or someone you would love to know. Pisces Full Moon may remind you to just relax, refresh and get more sleep. Not such a bad idea, now is it?
The Sun in Virgo is opposite Chiron Pisces 22 degrees. This transit can bring a challenge to your sense of personal purpose versus the vision of possibilities. Perhaps you are feeling a conflict between what you want to gain on a personal level versus a higher vision of what you could be capable of. To reach out to the possibilities you have to move beyond your comfort zone. Do you worry it may make you feel inadequate? It is between what is and what could be. Later it will be time to take further action, but for how it is important to think about what is going on so that you can make a decision.
Mars in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces. It may be time to confront issues in your life that involve how/why you get hurt by others, how you yourself hurt others, and how healing can take place in either of these situations. Are you only looking to satisfy expectations from others? This may try to push you in a healing direction, possibly by showing you how and why the path you have been on does not lead to where you want to go. If you start to feel overwhelmed, take some time out from the stress to get grounded and make sure you are centered.
Jupiter has just entered Libra and whatever house it falls in tells you where your confidence and level of joy is increased. You also will feel motivated to improve or gain in these matters. You will feel more free and confident. Be self-assured but do not overdo. Jupiter does have a desire to expand and it reminds you to believe in yourself.
So be ready to see what the Light is shining upon within you and be ready to take the next step. Where will it take you? Mercury moves out of retrograde on September 21 and Pluto goes direct at 15 degrees Capricorn on September 26. New options are coming to light between September 13 and September 18. Do pay attention.
Most affected by the Full Moon in Pisces are those whose birthdays are March 12-19; June 13-June 19; September 12-Septembr 19; and December 13-20.
Have a wonderful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. Look within and let the answers arise to show you the next step on the horizon. Shine your light! Thank you for reading. Radio show Going Beyond Astrology is on Tuesday nights at 9pm EDT. Tune in on the 20th for how Pluto is affecting your life. Until Again. Love, Jan
Wherever you are out there in the Universe I am sure you will find that nothing is as it seems. With the New Moon Solar Eclipse just about upon us life will sure get a bit more interesting even more so than it has been. How can that be, you ask. This is not fantasy time for many so you need to loosen up and find a way to look within and continue doing so until you find what is making you stay where you are. I am referring to taking a look at what is within and holding you back from purifying those thoughts, those feelings and those actions. Can it get clearer than that? Since the New Moon in Virgo is about purification. And it is also about healing aspects of you. Healing hands can help you. You may experience something magical.
Sun entered Virgo. It is time to clean out your body and mind. Organize and tidy up your life, in whatever ways it is a junk pile. And take stock of the ways you give service and make a contribution to the world around you. You may wish to pay more attention to details since this is what Virgo loves. This is a good time to for a goal. If it doesn’t work then it goes bye-bye, then you can reorganize and simplify whatever is left. Watch how you do this so you don’t dump something that may be useful to that goal. Since we are not perfect yet that is what Virgo implies. Perhaps you have been in a blindspot not seeing what is really in your world at this time. This may be due to that Neptune energy opposing the New Moon. You know that old junk I keep referring to for the past year well guess what you need to get rid of it or it will get you tangled up eventually if it hasn’t already done so.
With this New Moon in Virgo/ Solar Eclipse on September 1, 2016 you need to stop resisting or your life will continue in the same manner. Is that what you choose? This New Moon Solar Eclipse is the beginning of a new cycle which will go on for months so be ready to let go of what is holding you back. It takes place at 5:03am EDT, 2:03am PDT and 9:03am GMT. And those out in the Pacific it takes place right after midnight. Both Sun and Moon are in 9 degrees 21’ Virgo and it squares Saturn in Sagittarius and opposes Neptune in Pisces. This is an annular eclipse which only a narrow ring of the Sun is visible. Some things that Virgo rules in your daily life are physical health, hygiene, those who serve others and many other things, It is about the service you give to others and your daily habits/ routine, the working environment, pets. It rules accounting and finance and what you do with it in your daily life.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Wow. You choose to transform your life then start doing it instead of sitting there on the chair and lazing about. This is a time when it is easy to flow with finding daily routines in exercising, nutrition and anything like that which will benefit you in the long run. So what are you waiting for? Set your intentions to lose weight, change your diet and get everything back on track with your health and wellness. New Moon in Virgo wants you to take responsibility for this. One more thing-do you need to spend so much? Take charge of finances in your daily life also.
Aspecting the Solar Eclipse/New Moon is Saturn in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces and this has been in effect for some time now and it is exact again on September 10, 2016. Saturn is about practical matters and Neptune wants to take it up to a spiritual level. Since squares represent turning points this is a time to stay in our power and stop giving it away to those false ideas or any addictions. It is time to leave behind the guilt, the blame and the denial. In other words stop the BS that you tell yourself and wake up already without all the old patterns and junk you have convinced yourself to keep doing and thinking. As I said if you don’t do it then it will just keep you stuck and if that is what you choose, good luck. This is a time to get out of the stagnant waters of the childhood programming and conditioning from every facet of your life. Does it feel that good to put a blanket of false premises around you to protect you from reality? Think back to 1997 in September. That eclipse was at 9 degrees also. Note what was important to you back in that timeframe. What were you doing back then? Is something present now that reminds you of then or is pulling you to be on track with your soul purpose? This square is a giant turning point since it is right with the Solar Eclipse.
Oh my, I know you know what else is going on today, August 30. Yes, it’s that time again! Mercury goes retrograde for the next 3+ weeks. For up to a week before and after today, Mercury has been moving very slowly or stopped at this time. You may experience intensity, confusion, miscommunications, or feel like your progress is bogged down. I know I did for a brief moment. This usually is a good time to rethink, revise, and tie up old loose ends, rather than begin new ventures. You may find that new insights and information emerge later in the retrograde cycle that you didn’t anticipate, which can change the whole picture. Because of this, it is usually advised to avoid making final decisions during the retrograde and even up to 2 weeks after Mercury goes direct. However, it is an excellent time to do research in preparation for any major decisions. Those decisions are usually best put off until well after Mercury goes direct.
Since Mercury is retrograde, expect the unexpected, and leave lots of extra time when planning your schedule (to minimize any disruptions from delays and complications). For example today I was on my way back from an errand in late afternoon and there was a small school bus with flashing red lights sitting across the intersection at the stop sign. I waited about five minutes and another car came behind that bus…still doing nothing. Finally took off the flashing lights and continued to sit and as I passed –you will never know what he was doing…texting. Wow. Then he put the flashing reds on again as I got past. Right on dude! Stay flexible and learn to roll with the weirdness. Do some things that use your intuitive, creative mind during the retrograde.
Venus just entered Libra on August 29. This will bring about many interesting influences in relationships and close friendships. It is about harmony between you and others. It is sociable, quite creative and diplomatic. Charming ways soothe those around you and vice versa. Mercury also is conjunct Venus now and that means pleasant interactions and being gentle in your communication may bring you close to someone who is interesting to you whether business or personal. Some of you may delve more into your creativity and come up with something fantastic.
Mars square Lunar nodes August 29 -For a week or so your actions may be at cross purposes with your path. You might feel at odds with others or in the wrong place at the wrong time. On the other hand, this can be a time when being forced to take a temporary “detour” off your chosen path can bring an opportunity to gather new insights that can actually help you more, in the long run, than if you had stayed on the main path.
Those most intensely affected are Virgos between 5-12 degrees (August 28-September 3; Sagittarius between 5-12 degrees November 28- December 4; Pisces between 5-12 degrees February 23-March 1 and Gemini 5-12 degrees May 25-June 2. And any planets that may be around 9 degrees of those signs will also be affected.
Get those good intentions out there and revise other things. Happy Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Virgo. Join me Tuesdays at 9pm EDT on Going Beyond Astrology http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air. September 6 show is about getting rid of unwanted beliefs. Thank you for reading. Blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
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. Going Beyond Astrology radio show returns August 9 with some insights on healing http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/. Until again. Love, Jan
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
