NEW MOON in TAURUS, April 26, 2017- Stay in the moment and dance away the dark

taurus new moonSpring and my flowers are finally blooming. As the New Moon is ready to descend upon us there are many who are out of sorts. Spring to me is a time of joy and renewal as the days get longer and our hearts are warmer. Or are they? Some of you continue to hold onto the past maybe redirecting your energy to things which are in need of revising or revamping since there are planets retrograde including Mercury. As I look out over the mountains I feel that new starts are around for those of you who pay attention. Then there are those of you who are in constant need to fixate on the news that the mainstream media suggests is real and you see only what they want you to see.

Just saw this- The Washington DC area will be having a exercise/drill scheduled for April 26 in case of terror attack. And Dale Earnhardt Jr. will retire at end of season. And it seems like Le Pen in France has had a mediocre run so who knows what will happen on May 7 when the election takes place. Everything is being recycled (nothing ever changes) everywhere it can be. Is that due to the retrograde motion of the planets? Were you aware that they want to build a pipeline through Syria into Europe and that is why they are destroying buildings and towns? So Guam just had a magnitude 5.0 earthquake at 4:20am. Did you hear about it today, Tuesday? Of course you did not. Move on. Nothing major going on. Back to your phone you go. Looks like the some employees at Merck are wishing to make a few statements which they will not…tied to MMR vaccine link to autism. Why would the news report the truth? And just one more thing is the Operation Gotham Shield which is taking place in the NJ/NY metro area. Practice in case there is a nuke attack. Wouldn’t we all be gone with the wind if that happened? Is there a False Flag on the docket maybe? Onward.

Here comes the New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 in 6 degrees 27’ at 8:16am EDT; 5:16am PDT; and 12:16pm GMT. There are no main aspects with this New Moon. The Sun is at the same degree in Taurus. You all know that Taurus loves money, the good things of life and sensual and other pleasures. Since the major aspects are missing then what is really going on? Well there are a couple of fixed stars that may bring out the hidden demon within or even a tendency to dictate. Sound familiar???  That is the fixed star energy that may show up or not. And if it does let it be revealed so that it can just move on. The influence lasts up until the next New Moon in Gemini on May 25. If you are looking to begin anew in some area the time until the 10th of May is when to start. This is also a time to address any darkness within and finally rid yourself of it since those Fixed Stars are helping you to do this.

The New Moon itself is about what you wish to spend time on or what you value in your life at this time. Do you enjoy what you already have? This New Moon can find you prancing around looking for more and more of whatever it is- beauty, money and good times with lots of pleasurable pursuits. Hey, wait a minute, don’t you have enough of it all or are you just going to keep spending because you are compensating for something that is not present in your life? In the positive sense Taurus New Moon is about being in the NOW. Taurus loves the NOW and that indicates once you take time to create the resources, take care of investments and to be grounded, then you feel good. You will then gravitate to beauty and good times but continue to stay present in the moment. It is time for you to feel good about what is going on in life and keep from being attached to the material world once all things are in order. Be calm and keep good thoughts going and if you have to pretend to stay in a good place or regarding your resources then do so. Believe you are rich and you are. Know that you attract what you think or did you forget?

This is a time to keep the distractions to a minimum otherwise you will be plodding through the gunk again and not flowing as the New Moon would like you to do. Watch out for getting too involved in the sensuality of the New Moon instead of thinking about how to be moving forward. You may have some luck now with real estate or family property.

Venus, ruler of Taurus, is just about into Aries again after retrograding back into Pisces. Venus is in the last degree of Pisces and ready to bolt into Aries on Friday April 28 early morning. So whatever you were doing while Venus was retrograding and now still moving forward in Pisces it is time to be ready to feel something different. Think about what you were doing while it has been in Pisces and it is now time to let it go and hope what you did will be perfect in the area you have been affected. Venus is still conjunct Chiron in Pisces and squaring Saturn in Sagittarius bringing a feeling or awareness of lack. It is time for you to be patient since some things continue to unfold as each day passes. Accept it as it is right now and then begin to fine tune. And with Venus coming into Aries it is time for a bit of a new dance. Venus is uncomfortable in feisty Aries since she likes to languish in the sensual nature of Taurus or the spiritual side of Pisces.  Mars has been in sextile to Venus and will be that way until June 25. Mars has the upper hand in Gemini once Venus is back on April 28 in detriment in Aries. What action will you take at this time? You most likely will be more active than sitting and going within.

Is there anyone around who may be stubborn or will it be you? Mercury is still retrograde and conjunct Uranus in Aries which makes things a bit erratic especially in communication. What unusual thoughts are coming up? How radical are your words?

And speaking of retrograde—Pluto just went retrograde on April 21, 2017. What does that mean for the world and you? It is a time of internal house cleaning for you. Pluto retrograde in Capricorn is intense and wants you to let go and regenerate all. It will push you and prod you to do so. Are you ready? This is when you are to look at what you need or don’t need. Are you giving away your power? Pluto will show you. It is about any inner workings of you and what you can do to better yourself. Perhaps a detox would work well or taking a look at your inner self.

Those most intensely affected are birthdays; April 21- 29; July 26-August 3; October 27-November 4; and January 22-30. Signs/Rising affected more: Taurus 1-9 degrees; Leo 2-10 degrees; Scorpio 3-11degrees; and Aquarius 1-9 degrees. Any personal planets around 6 degrees 27’ will also be affected.

Pages of Shustah draw—The Divine Horse says you will get what you need and Black Cat says please but stay centered in case any negatives show up. And the Gnomes say your hard work will pay off.

Thank you for reading and sharing. Have an enjoyable New Moon in Taurus and let the darkness vanish. Keep yourself grounded no matter what the world energy is doing. And please stay in the moment since that is what Taurus moon likes. Many blessings!  Check out the articles in offthecuffe-zine.com (May issue I wrote about lunar nodes). Until again.

FULL MOON in LIBRA, April 10/11, 2017- Share your harmonious insights with others

pink moon2017

Oh so late in getting this out to you. My tax clients are on the front burner these past weeks. Spring is here and there you go around and round and how will you grow? Use your intuition to guide you to what’s real once you look it over with your mindful zeal. The madness of March has fallen away so what is your plan for the coming spring day? Will it be filled with some joyful interaction or will you go out and follow the underlying faction? I sit here and wonder how anyone can exist these days…even survive by being of the hive mind. Not going into this as of the present but will continue to ponder that question as time goes by. The Full Moon is just about here. How will you approach your life as it magnifies your relationships and more importantly the balance factor within?

As the energies heighten I am surprised about the Syrian situation. Here we go with the good, the bad and the ugly. Why all of a sudden is President Assad a bad guy? So why was there an article about the wife of Assad saying how wonderful she was and what good things the President was doing for Syria? If you are going to believe this kind of stuff again, go right ahead. Do you really believe he is the evil dictator that is being portrayed? Just tell me why the Islamic radicals are invading that country and therefore our government is helping the radicals. Our sovereignty is on the ledge…our freedom of thoughts on the edge…What the heck is the need for the extreme photos from Syria? This way the government and media can get you revved up to say yeah…bring on war. Come on. Stop being pulled into this game. The sheep will react in fear or total outrage. Can you say prepackaged solution? Are you going to buy it? President Trump obviously has been pulled into the toxic mix and it is too bad. In my honest observation I think he was threatened about something in his life and guess what now he is on the bandwagon. Wake up already.

There is a culmination of the energies which were found with the Sun in Aries opposite Jupiter in Libra in the past week. So this Full Moon in Libra is also about the Ego self vs. Union with others. The Full Moon in Libra arrives Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 2:08AM EDT, 11:8PM PDT (April 10, 2017) and 6:08AM GMT in 21degrees 32’. The Sun is at the same degree in Aries. It is a time of a heightened stress feeling due to the Grand Cross forming between planets in the middle 3 of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Libra and Capricorn). This stress comes if you get involved in the lower energies of those signs. The Moon and Jupiter are in Libra opposing the Sun and Uranus and Eris in Aries; Pluto is Capricorn square both groups. And there is Vesta in Cancer which completes the Grand Cross. Watch for unexpected things going on including any outbursts!!!

It may find you focused on partnerships. Have you stood up for your truth in the past? Or have you felt that being diplomatic was more the way to be in most cases since others would look upon you with judgement and try to veer you off your course. Most likely that is what happened to many of you through your lifetime no matter how old you are. Right? This Full Moon may find you going into a new direction depending where it is in your chart. Now, it does not indicate that it is completely a different kind of path, just that it may be something new in an area in which you are already focused.

Some of you may get some insights or fulfillment and others of you may find that some pattern that has been present too long between you and your partner is finally thrown out. It is time to get rid of the baggage around love and maybe even learn that lesson once and for all in the love arena. Venus is going direct on April 15 being retrograde since March 4 which helps any love interaction. You feel ready to be involved again. Venus just went back into Pisces on April 3. There is excitement in the air and for maybe even a life changing event for some of you with the Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries. Since Jupiter is in Libra and the Full Moon is in Libra and Venus is the ruler of Libra, relationships may play a pivotal role during this time.

Mercury is now retrograde in Taurus going back into Aries until May 3. Since there are many planets which are also retrograde this Full Moon timeframe the energy is a bit heavy. How will you address the issues that need to be revised and reconciled? What is showing up that you need to reconsider? Retrograde is about relooking at things that keep you from going forward in a particular direction. Have there been any communication issues which need to be resolved from the last months? This is the time to go within making adjustments and then when it is time to move forward you are ready to go. Mercury retrograde is not a negative time. So many I know think this is like a curse. No it is not. It is about realigning with that which has gone a bit off course and it gives you an opportunity to straighten it out, especially in the communication area. And yes, you know that this is when the hiccup comes…the mail gets lost; you go around in circles (that helps no one who is a tax professional –it has been a whirlwind and it wasn’t even retrograde in the past couple of weeks); and communication issues are rampant).

On April 6th Saturn, our planet of limitations and boundaries, went retrograde. A window of opportunity may open up in either a professional or life situation. With Mars in Taurus at 22degrees and inconjunct (150degrees) the Full Moon in Libra may bring minor annoyances which make you a bit crazed. Under most circumstances that is all it would be, but since it is aspecting the Full Moon it is a bit over the top annoying. Also Pluto in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries is affecting the Full Moon as I previously said. This is one last show on the horizon since soon it will be out of range and will be waning in its effect. This aspect has been around since 2012. Some decisions made at this time may well be final since Libra is about decisions. Will they be major? There is a kind of one last hurrah transformative effect with this Full Moon in Libra. Where is it taking us? I think to an interesting outcome eventually.

Those affected most intensely are birthdays of April 7-15; July 9-17; October 11-19 and January 8-16. The Sun signs and rising signs affected approximately are 17-25 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

A few tidbits about the Sun signs/rising signs:

Aries – Open you heart to others at this time, Help someone that needs it.

Taurus – Check in on a regular basis with significant other. What you do daily really counts.

Gemini – Share your thoughts and inspirations. Who cares if anyone likes them?

Cancer – Domestic matters to the forefront. Somehow they are interconnected with work life.

Leo – What kind of decisions are you pondering? Is there a new opportunity coming through?

Virgo – Your finances are affected by your mindset. Do not undermine your security.

Libra – What is it you need to change? Maybe you need some freedom and space right now.

Scorpio – Looks like you need to recharge your batteries. Use imagination instead of worry.

Sagittarius – There is a world of possibilities that open. Socialize if it is on your goal list.

Capricorn – Sudden changes may bring a breakthrough. Set a good work pace/follow through.

Aquarius – Your routine may be shaken up. Think before you say anything.

Pisces – Be careful with your money matters. Stop fighting the flow for you may find a treasure.

Thank you all for reading. Share if you will. I truly appreciate it. Have an outstanding Full Moon in Libra. It may take you in a new direction of helping others to find their dream. And love may come unexpectedly for those who are open. Check out the offthecuffe-zine.com where there are great articles. I have one this month about Joyful Inspiring Jupiter. Many blessings. Until again. Love, Jan

NEW MOON in ARIES, March 27, 2017- Who are you and where will you allow the energy to take you?

new moon in aries 2017

Oh dear me. I have disturbed your phone time. Don’t get me wrong I have a phone too but do you know what? I use it for calling and some texting, that is it. Why not more? Phones are good for communicating when you are not with the individual; phones are good for texting a time to meet someone; phones are not a replacement for in-person communication. I really don’t care that you wish to use your phone, but soon you will see to what I am referring. Is that too harsh? As I did some research on this New Moon in Aries I found that you can dig deep into your core and take your power back. Don’t you wish to know who you are? Wouldn’t that be a good thing? It matters not what age you are, it is time to wake up already, dear ones. This is your Earth and it is in control of monsters of the deep. You just laughed at that, didn’t you? Ok. No big deal. You are totally controlled and you do not even recognize it. You have no money; you have no time; you are being used to do the dirty work. Get upset with me, I do not care. All I know that if you go within you can find that real part of you with New Moon in Aries.

By the way are you one of those individuals who lambast the President of the US of A? Just wondering! Are you not for the children of the world? Many are so into pedophilia (how dare I say this?) and if certain things happen within the country then many will go to jail. It is just one of the reasons there is so much dissension stirred up in the masses. Those who are involved will do anything to protect their kind. Dysfunctional is the word of the day. I am talking about child abuse and how this is a part of the plan along with trafficking.

And I ask you this? What is it within your own being is so fearful of change? Think for yourself already instead of being a robot.  I pray that you wake up. Nothing, NOTHING is as it seems. Wake up now to the truth. You do not have to believe me…go find it out by doing research and communicating. Take time to meditate to find the joy in your heart and discover the true you If you have not already done so.

Oh, yes, the New Moon in Aries energy is coming in fast and furious. It arrives at 10:57pm EDT 7:57pm PDT Monday, March 27, 2017 and 3:57am GMT on March 28 in 7 degrees 37’. The New Moon is a cosmic reset; a new beginning for all. It is tempered by the Mars (the ruler of Aries) in Taurus sextile to Neptune in Pisces so there is romance and sensuality in the picture and on the other hand can lend some moral guidance. The New Moon tells you to step back before you take action and even use your intuitiveness in the process. You may tend to reign in your impulsiveness also at this time. Yet it is time to go out and do it with some pizzazz after some consideration. You still have to take the initiative to get that project started. This New Moon is asking about who you are and what you intend to do with it. Do you know what is within?

The New Moon in Aries is unafraid to work on his own and emotionally leans on no one. New Moon is looking for affection and will keep all in line and peaceful to find it but may get overwhelmed as it goes on. Along with the softer Mars energy the New Moon in Aries is conjunct retrograde Venus in Aries. You may put your calling before your relationship which may be the thing to do at this time. Aries is fiery and fearless. Aries chooses to go out in and assert its place in the world. Of course on the shadow end it is really selfish. Which do you choose? Your passion lives in Aries and so does your drive and your ability to just get it done. If you want confidence then Aries is the energy for you.

A good thing with the Moon in Aries conjunct Venus it is all about luxurious things. But look before you leap into going over the top since the retrograde of Venus advises against the purchase. And if there is something in your chart touched by this then you may very well have the abundance it is creating but it may be delayed. Only problem may be the manipulative others who show up at your doorstep. Watch for that!  If you are looking for love you most likely get it with the right conditions.

Where is the New Moon in you natal blueprint? In mine it is opposite Neptune and a very wide conjunction to Venus in Aries. It tells me it is about creative endeavors and not practical stuff. Oh my…I have to be on top of any mathematical computations I have to do. Also, deceptions or backbiting from others is a possibility. Wonderful! Not. Maybe I shall hide and meditate the figures to appear on the forms.

Seriously, Venus retrograde just wants you to look at what is in front of you once again and then take action accordingly. With Venus retrograde conjunct the New Moon in Aries it could also mean for some of you a fated kind of love which brings something from a past life so you can work it out once and for all. Also, love may show up but for some reason there is a delay in the going forward with it. Have patience. It is going to happen.

I will reiterate that it is truly a time to acknowledge the love you have for yourself. It is about manifesting what you choose once you find the love within. So it is about you right now. If you are doing something that makes you unhappy then only that love will help you extract yourself from just doing anything and being your authentic self and loving what you do which then opens the way to manifesting your dreams. Just remember to take it a step at a time.

Another aspect at this time is Jupiter in Libra square to Pluto in Capricorn which pushes you to succeed in whichever way you choose to do so. But, be careful the energy can bring about ruthless actions and going for the gold in ways that are corrupt. So many planets in Aries opposing Jupiter also can make for expanded energy. And Mars in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn will definitely take you to where you choose to go, without a doubt.

Those Sun signs/Rising signs most intensely affected are: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn at 2 – 10 degrees. If you have personal planets (Sun, Mercury, Moon, Venus and Mars) at those degrees then the New Moon energy will bring intense flavor to any of those also. Birthdays affected more than others are: March 22-30; June 22-30; September 24-October 2; and December 22-December 30.

I pulled an Animal Powers card for the New Moon in Aries and the Cat appeared. The Cat is about confidence. How appropriate since Aries is in most cases very confident and self-assured. Cat needs no one else’s approval. Call on Cat to make adjustments to your plan. Cats do not give up when chasing their goals. Ask Cat to show you your time and purpose. Ask Cat to help with balance in life. Cat will show you how to go your own way. This is perfect for Aries New Moon.

Thank you for reading. Share if you will. Enjoy the NCAA Final Four for those who love basketball like me but do not let it take you over.  Flow with the energy and if you need to clear anything now is the time to find out about you. Check out offthecuffe-zine.com where I have a monthly article along with other wonderful insights from others. It comes out around the first of each month. Also take a gander at the Spiritual Guidance Network/ proboards where I have a page. Do take a breath. Look for miracles along the way. Many blessings! Until again. Love, Jan

 

FULL MOON in VIRGO, March 12, 2017-Look ahead as you heal and transform

full moon in virgoInteresting times are happening and the madness will reach a new level. Oh no, you say how can that be? Well, before I address the worldly madness let’s take a look at another kind of madness that descends upon March. The winds just blew it in again and I sit and am overcome with a thought…what else matters at this time? Nothing! Ok, it does. March madness and the upcoming NCAA college basketball tourney have taken my life by storm. Trite? Yes, very trite. Anyway, it is so true and I will refrain from expounding anymore about it for now. Oh, drat, let me say this one more thing – Coach Jay Wright of the Villanova Wildcats is a Capricorn and he has been through much transformation in the past years and he has now become a premier coach which most would have denied years ago. Well, guess what, Capricorn’s take it one step at a time and the older they get, the better they are at what they do.

In the meantime as I write this new post I notice the anti-Trump brigade is biding their time. Maybe you need to dig deeper and see what actually is going on instead of riding the bandwagon of anger and hatred. Do you really know what is behind the scenes? If you do then I would love to hear it because only through proximity to the White House will you know. Otherwise, all I can say is that many feel that he is the wrong individual to be in the White House. If you support those who are banding together to take him down then I ask the following? Are you ready for a civil war? Are you prepared to be targeted for anything that is now wrong in the eyes of those fueling the hatred? What is the truth? Is it what you find on your TV news or is it what you have been led to believe and you take it as your own? Just curious! Have you lost your heart and fear has taken you to the depths of yourself? Think about it. Oh, by the way, since Donald Trump is a Gemini he is like the catalyst of a new beginning. Of course, no one will ever agree that he is supposed to be in the current position. Dear ones, if you think that removing him is going to resolve the issues, then I hate to see what you will feel after it does and life becomes the very thing that you are protesting against. Wake up and get rid of the illusions. The Solar Eclipse from 2 weeks ago has been prodding you to do that. By the way our President is truly a representative of the collective anger according to his chart. He is in the position to basically shake everything up. Is that what you fear the most? Remember that a house divided falls.

Virgo Full Moon arrives at 10:53AM on Sunday, March 12, 2017 in 22 degrees 13’ EDT; 7:53APM PDT; and 2:53PM GMT. The Full Moon is about what you desire versus what you already have. The Sun in Pisces is opposite the Moon in Virgo. It is a polarity and it is about your higher self in opposition to your earthly self. Whatever you began a couple weeks ago on the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26, 2017 may show up now in some way but the final impact most likely will appear at the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017.

Deep changes take place. Relationships will be affected since the Virgo Full Moon is trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Trine makes things easier as the energy evolves but it could just go unnoticed. If you are looking for transforming emotional effects then you have it. A trine is a bit easy but it will still bring about a significant shift. New intense relationships may come in or a current one changed and transformed. Pluto is also sextile the Sun in Pisces which brings a psychic sensitivity into the picture. It is also about looking after you and maintaining your health.

It is between reason and emotion along with thought vs. feeling. It is time to look at what is going on within you and be ready to move ahead. Yes, that leap is staring you in the face and many will ignore it. Through the next few weeks your new awareness is unfolding and expanding and the Virgo Moon is lighting up your path. Will you pay attention to what it is revealing? Or will you allow it to bring out the victim within you? This is similar to an alchemical energy which changes the difficulties of the past to a lighter energy of the now. Keep this in mind as your frustrations mount or you decide you need to hide out until it goes away. Stop fighting yourself. The Sun (the soul) and the Moon (personality) in full moon energy are present to be united. Venus, Eris and Uranus in Aries are triggers to help the process of ridding yourself of all that is no longer needed. Whatever is limiting you will be helped by Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries. This is another push to finding out your truth. Of course, you need to realize that Jupiter opposite Uranus is also about freedom. Whatever the situation you are in now is where you need to be. Just remember with Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries that you may be a bit too optimistic in a new relationship. It is best to take it one step at a time. This is a time of connecting with the Source and allowing the love energy to support you in what occurs. Love is all there is. It is about being present to the love within. This will help you recognize what your truth is.

This Full Moon also is about problem-solving in your life. It is not about overthinking but flow. Wherever it falls in your chart will tell you what the issue may be and just notice it and allow it to come to you-the answers that is. Stop pushing towards the goal. Whatever the dissatisfaction may be will dissolve if you just open to the truth of it.

The asteroid Pallas Athene is conjunct the Sun in Pisces, Chiron in Pisces opposing the Full Moon in Virgo. She seeks to find truth in order to resolve the situation. She won’t take any action unless provoked. Right now she is trying to help you heal the pain that has been going on within. Wherever she is in your natal chart will tell you what it is about so then you can sit and heal.

A cleansing of your home with Palo Santo smudge stick or incense will be truly a good thing. Go get some and let it clear out all the stagnant energy that has been building in the last months. Since the Full Moon in Virgo is about organization so get going with getting things in order so that life will go smoother.

Pages of Shustah cards drawn for the Full Moon in Virgo are the following: The Magical Horse says you are on track with good health. The Celestial Bees join in and say use your soulfulness to be creative and keep moving. The Winged Winter asks you to listen. Your thoughts are a reflection of how you are feeling. Archangel Gabriel is around. What is the message you wish to send or receive? You are on your own though in what you do.Thank you Pages of Shustah and Archangel Gabriel!

The Sun Signs/Rising Signs most intensely affected at the Virgo Full Moon are: Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius in 18-25 degrees. Birthdays are: March 8-15, June 9-16, September 11-19 and December 11-19. If you have personal planets within a few degrees of these degrees then that will be influenced.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, February 26, 2017-Will you ride the wave?

new-moon-in-piscesAround and around we go where we stop nobody knows. Isn’t this how it is at the present time in the US of A and the rest of the world? There is so much craziness with so many out there that I find the only thing to do is observe others. And what do I observe? Chatter and more chatter continues on; disruption and constant need for attention appears. Significant change has to take place yet the way it is occurring is a bit over the top for many of you. Before I note why I say this I ask you – when was the last time you really looked within and recognized your truth? The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces is going to be intensely affecting many of you and if you are not paying attention where do you think it will take you? It is time to release the illusions that have surrounded you and leap forward on your path. Will you do so? Will you? I hear the echoes of those who say they are too busy; they are not interested; they are too old; they are you name it. Life is shifting and whether you choose to acknowledge the coming changes then maybe you need to just keep pretending and let the illusions dominate your life.

Fake news, gibberish, lying, deceit, global wars, outrageous behavior, and the list goes on and on. What is it saying to you? Are you going to jump on the bandwagon to destruction and live in the controls of those who wish to take over your life? Or will you stand in your power for once in your life and walk through the door once and for all. You have a choice now to be in a controlled world or be free. Which do you choose? Google took down Mike Adams, Natural News website for some odd technical issue which was used a few years back. Go ahead search it, not found. Soon if you promote anything that is not on the agenda, it will disappear also. He promotes wellness. Oh no. You are in charge of you. No one else is. But that remains to be seen. On the other hand the anti-Trump bandwagon is in full swing for the conditioned of the world. Research already and see what this is all about. Sorry, dear ones, many of you will not because you are under control. Do you want a war? Maybe give it some serious thought as to what you do want in your life. The New Moon Solar Eclipse may just open a new door and will you be ready? One more thing Nick Ortner and the World Tapping Summit begins Monday night February 27, 2017. If you are not tapping you need to check it out. I have found it works wonders for so many issues.

Let me suggest for the New Moon in Pisces that you write down your intentions as to what you would like to take place in your life. Since it is occurring in Pisces then choose those things which are ruled by Pisces. Some would be: trusting the Higher Power, psychic sensitivity, addictions, imagination and happiness within. For instance you may write: “I wish to attend yoga class ? times a month” or “I wish to have support from the Angels in my creativity projects. Those are a couple examples.” See if you can come up with about 5 intentions. There are some who say you may wish to come up with 10 intentions. You decide.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces arrives on February 26, 2017 at 9:58am EST, 6:58am PST and 2:58pm GMT in 8 degrees 12’ where the Sun is also located. This is the last of the series of eclipses in Pisces. It is about endings and also new beginnings. Since it is conjunct the South Node It will tend to bring to you a final review of those things that are no longer needed in your life – old patterns, feeling defeated, escapism or being too idealistic. Whatever appears in front of you will have to be walked through. It is time to use your intuitive powers to see through whatever fog has enveloped you through the past. Now Is that moment in time. The New Moon is conjunct Neptune which rules Pisces and Mercury which is bringing to you the connection to your higher self or soul. Are you ready for this to occur? Or will you continue to stay in the fogginess or those illusions that others create? The New Moon with Neptune tends to bring about a dreamy quality to your life. Watch for lies that you may not realize are lies. You may connect the past to the future.

Some other aspects are Mars in Aries conjunct Uranus in Aries at 21+ degrees which is a quite exciting energy if you allow it. What goes on in the arena of sexuality may sizzle and some kind of liberating energy may take over in another area of your life. Some surprise may show up. Mars and Uranus are also opposite Jupiter in Libra. It creates a T-square with Pluto in Capricorn. Some may be involved in power struggles. Don’t go there. You have those who may choose a freedom quest out there; the individuals who will choose rebellious actions and the competitive types. Lots of interesting interactions may take place that may bring about some kind of reform. The polarization of the masses is evident with the opposition of Mars/Uranus opposite Jupiter.

With the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces there may be some kind of connection to ancestral karma for those of you who are affected. It could be related to your creativity from ancestral lines. So if something opens up for you do follow it through in a creative way. Also the Solar Eclipse in Pisces is showing how divided the country is and can bring up the victim within you. Or how about you follow the path to spiritual awakening instead? Wouldn’t you like to turn your dreams into a new reality? It is a fortunate New Moon Solar Eclipse if you just let the creative juices flow.

Those most affected are birthdays February 21-March 1; May 21-May 29; August 23-31 and November 23-December 1. Sun signs and rising signs intensely affected are Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius degrees 3-12 degrees.

Some basic influences for the Sun signs/rising signs:

Aries- It is time to fade out and take care of you. Watch uncontrollable reactions.

Taurus- Friends may be a lot warmer now. You are on a roll and want what you want.

Gemini-Is it a pipe dream or a real vision that you can manifest. Open to be inspired.

Cancer- You may not be able to relax like you wish. Watch for any major upsets.

Leo- Have an alternate plan ready just in case. Watch deceptive financial interests.

Virgo- New patterns emerge in your relationship area. Plant new seeds now!

Libra-Watch out for argumentative and pushy others. Come up with some compassion.

Scorpio-Enhanced love and personal affairs are in the limelight. Do not instigate. Watch health.

Sagittarius-Look before you leap! It is time to bring your dreams to reality.

Capricorn-Soothing words and intuitive thinking may be what you wish. Watch for fights.

Aquarius-Set your limits and do respect them. Watch out for over-extension in finances.

Pisces-Whatever you begin now has long term impact. You may get what you wish to manifest.

Horse came up in Animal Powers card pull. You do not have to act like a bucking bronco to move ahead where you need to go.

Don’t forget those intentions! This is a time of sensitivity. Empower others and refrain from trying to rescue them. Respect others and watch boundaries. And watch out for the unexpected.

FULL MOON/Lunar Eclipse in Leo, February 10/11, 2017-Drop the ego and be authentic and creative

lion-full-moon

It is getting a bit rowdy out there. Amazing to me that so many are still in the gunk of the past and cannot move on, let it go and just live right now in this moment. But it is going to continue down the road. Seems to me the show is getting a bit overly dramatic and those who need to be in the limelight will get more creative with their actions whether good or not so good. It may be time to stay with the Aquarian Sun and look for answers outside the box. Get moving into that visionary part of you as you create. Then again, you know everyone will be looking for attention with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo. Lights on for the next play! As I begin to write this all eyes are on the Super Bowl. Oh, I am a big fan of the team that people hate, yet it is not about that right now. We shall see what occurs as the game is over. (The Patriots won after being down 25 points. I turned it off and as I was about to turn it back on about 5 minutes later a voice said OT is going to happen. I said really? And it happened. Football angels I guess.)

In the meantime the outpouring of violence, threats and other ramblings about the current state of affairs in this country is totally insane. What about the changes do you despise so much? Is it really you or are you so programmed that you cannot see the truth? I am observing the constant rant against that which has occurred in the United States of America. I get swearing on Facebook and taunting about things that have nothing to do with anything. That is certainly everyone’s choice! In my country freedom reigns supreme!  Of course, you may wish to live enslaved. That is your free will. My only question remains-what is the hatred about? Remember, dear ones, what you dislike in others is what you dislike in yourself. Somewhere in time you may wish you had stayed strong in your power and recognized what was going on here. Just my two cents which will buy you nothing! So onward I go to Mr. Full Moon in LEO. And the Russians are not responsible for the Full Moon. Just saying! (if we cannot laugh and be loving then what is the point?). As they always said the truth will set you free.

The Full Moon in Leo, the drama planet, the star, the dancing queen, shows up in the sky on Friday, February 10, 2017 at 7:32 PM EST, 4:32 PM PST and on Saturday, February 11 at 12:32 GMT in 22 degrees 28’. The Sun in Aquarius is sitting at the exact same degree. What is the Full Moon in Leo trying to say? This is a warning since it also is a Lunar Eclipse.  No need to hide out even though it may be a bit intense. First of all, since this is the week of the Lunar Eclipse, it says that the energy is increasing and on that day, February 10/11 try to refrain from making any major new beginnings since it is a fated type of day. Whatever is expected to happen from a decision made may turn out totally different. Wait at least until the next week to decide on some matter which you are looking to act upon. More clarity will show up and a better decision can be made. The fated part is taken out of the picture if you wait a week.

Ol’ Full Moon in Leo tells you to watch emotional reactions around this time. It is a good time for you to take a creative direction during this time. Do you know what you came here to do? Maybe you just need to figure it out and finally put it out there. Just wait until the few days past to do so since you do not want to have to take you somewhere you don’t wish to be. If you are looking to transform something about how you see yourself then this is a good time to do so. Of course, relationships with others may be slightly strained due to each of you wishing to do your own thing. Just allow what is to be. Keep the drama to a minimum since Leo loves the dramatic picture. If emotional issues arise then it is time to address them and let them go already. Yes, let them go. Being creative to some indicates a sort of rebellion. If you are in a creative place then that means you are on a path of your own following. Act on your creativity instead of getting caught up in the stress-related carping of the media which is too much drama. And drama tears down that intuitive and creative sense which is important at this time.

Since this Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse it is a deeply transformative time that can bring sudden change. On the other hand it take you to a place where you thought you would not end up, but it is definitely where you need to be. The Lunar Eclipse is a time of change.   Scary to so many of you, I know. But it will be for the better!!! That sounds good to me. ON ANOTHER NOTE for those who are interested   This is a night of passion and heat. If you want hot, you got it. So if you have the time and place go dance a dance and light up a new place.

Those of you coming from your lower selves (ego) at the time of the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Leo may find ego totally in the forefront this week. Are you one of those who will get caught up in the media frenzy? It does you little good. The focus is on your authenticity. Is staying authentic going to be your mantra or will you stay in the acting realm looking to seek attention?

Right in the area of the Full Moon in Leo is Regulus, fixed star of royalty/kings and it is conjunct the Full Moon in Leo. Regulus is one of the four royal stars and it is prominent in President Trump’s chart at his rising sign in Leo.  So does it mean that Mr. Trump will change something in his personality or something unexpected comes from elsewhere? It brings about wealth and good fortune but can indicate violence also. Regulus wins over enemies.

There is also a grand fire trine. The trine comprises of Uranus in Aries, the Moon in Leo, and Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn is in its detriment in Sagittarius plods away slowly though the 25th degree. His slow and steady gait will eventually overtake electric Uranus in Aries with its fiery urges, while the quick moon dances around them all. Even if there are challenges you will find a way to walk through them.

Jupiter will be retrograde in Libra for about 4 months starting this past Monday, February 6 until June 9, 2017! It is a time for you to look within and evolve beyond the norm. You have to look at your current situation and go within to find answers that have eluded you. It is time to find balance in your life, in your relationships and what is going on in the world.

I picked an Animal Powers card for the Full Moon and guess what I got Cat. How interesting. Meditate on Cat when you need for confidence and to feel better about yourself. See through the eyes of a cat and you will see a world that respects you, fears you. If you need to make adjustments to your plan, call on Cat. It will also lead you to your time and purpose.

Thank you for reading. Stay in balance, in the moment and be authentic as you create. Tune in Tuesdays 9pm EST for my radio show Going Beyond Astrology on the SGN  mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ Had computer issues and am back for February 14.

NEW MOON in Aquarius, January 27/28 2017-Will you allow your independent authentic self to emerge?

aquarius-heart-moon

How have you been in this craziness the last couple of weeks? I am amazed at the amount of untruths that continue to pop up in the media along with the basic fears showing up for so many individuals. What is the fear about? I keep asking myself am I living in a dreamland filled with those who are real; or am I living in reality and everyone else lives in a far off land to which I have no connection. So what is really going on here? I find it fascinating that so many avoid the inner wisdom and prefer to jump into the maelstrom of vindictiveness, crazy actions and hiding behind other’s beliefs. This New Moon in Aquarius may help set it all straight in a very unexpected way. I guess it will manifest the way one intends it to do so. And along with the New Moon the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster arrives on the same day. If you are looking to climb to new levels in all areas of your life then here is your chance. This won’t happen if you are just sitting on your couch.

In the meantime I am absolutely astonished regarding those who continue to not think for themselves. Aquarius is about the visionary, community involvement and friendships. It is about free-thinking and independent spirit. Maybe the Aquarian New Moon will give you the opportunity to open your eyes to a different perspective on what is going on in your life and the world in general. Maybe it will also whisper in your ears that you can make a difference without name-calling, slurs and all negative actions that I have seen in the past few months. This is leading up to a wake-up call for many. I am totally befuddled by the attention-seeking behavior of women these days. Yes, the feminine principle has long been in effect yet kept in check by many. A lot of it will just be a verbal circus and not to be taken seriously. At present with this new moon in Aquarius there is a different masculine energy that emerges also. What will happen is up to you?  In the meantime there is lots of resentment. There are ugly words and anything but peaceful protesting obvious to me in the marches by women around the world. Do you really think the comments by Madonna and Ashley Judd will take women to a new place in society?. I guess I must be from the other planet because I see this so differently than most. But that is ok since it is a necessary thing to happen so eventually those who continue to walk in the dream state or live in the bubble will wake up. Because I am a woman I have my rights. Yes, I  do. Get a grip because life will continue to change and if you continue to be negative then that is what you will get from others-negativity.

The New Moon in Aquarius arrives on January 27 2017 at 7:06 PM EST, 4:06 PM PST and 12:06 AM GMT.(January 28) at 8 degrees 15’. The Sun is also at the same degree in Aquarius. There is no major aspect affecting it. There is a conjunction with Isis and Osiris asteroids of Egyptian realm which may bring more focus on twin flames and the abandonment issue in relationships. It lends a very strong energy to your relationship and many fear the depth of feelings that come up. Does it mean a coming together of more twin flames with deep love this coming month? Isis and Osiris are about the balance between the masculine and feminine and since they are in Aquarius right now it says something unexpected or unusual will be in the mix along with a freedom-bent. So for now during this New Moon energy it tells you to let go of preconceived notions about a possible twin flame connection. It will be what it is.

In the meantime Uranus rules Aquarius of the New Moon. In the ancient world Saturn was the ruler. The energies of Uranus are electric and crammed with change. Uranus is forward-looking. Uranus dislikes tradition and celebrates your individuality and creativity. Negative expression of Uranus is being a rebel without a cause and taking no responsibility. When Uranus is not developed, it reacts; but when natives are truly in tune with its energies, Uranus is highly intuitive and that urge will help bring about originality. It is time to focus on your individuality. With Aquarian Moon it asks you to liberate yourself from some situation that has bogged you down and then you will find that you can start a new creation with this New Moon. All the planets are direct now at the New Moon so you no longer are held back in taking big leaps forward. Are you going to do this? I hope you find a way to find the inspiration to do so. Create now and you will be amazed at where it takes you. Use some Neroli essential oil for this New Moon.

Venus in Pisces is squaring (in conflict) Saturn in Sagittarius. So it is saying that old karmic stuff is rearing its ugly head if I may be so trite. Yes, it is time to realize what you need to finally let go depending on where it falls in your natal blueprint. What causes most fear in you regarding your belief about love? Is that what needs to be released. I think so. This can cause big problems in all forms of relationships whether in business or your romantic life. Try not to push partners away, and work towards taking the initiative towards breaking through any walls that may have built up. Marriages can be rocky at this time if touched by this New Moon. Either you or your partner could feel unappreciated by the other. Why not reach out with a big hug?  Watch you aren’t taken for granted even in work arena. Also, be sure to look carefully at contracts or other agreements made at this time. The good news is that if the romance or business collaboration makes it through this New Moon test phase it should go into a finer place as you create a new beginning. Venus is also about money. You may feel a bit more ambitious and work much harder this month to stand out amongst others.

This can also be a time when you arrive at a crossroads and must make some firm choices, or when circumstances might force you to change your direction. The outcome is up to you and may be different than what you looked for.

Mars moves into its own sign Aries (the same day of the New Moon) where it commands its world. This is the beginning of a new cycle since it has been two years since Mars has been home. If you have Mars in Aries in your natal chart then you will be ready to start again and move forward. Where does it fall in your chart will tell you where the new cycle starts and what is the main focus. Mars is about progress and achievement. It is a good time to set those intentions for the year. If you lost your passion now you may feel a new surge of such. Will you sense a rebirth? And Mercury finally leaves its retrograde shadow on the New Moon day. This means the confusion, delays and miscommunications of the last 2 months have mostly dissipated. Look for more choices now. Look for a new decision or a way of understanding may be better. It is time to take another look at whatever the question you put off during Mercury retrograde.

Thank you for reading and do share with others if you choose. I wish you well and thank you for you and all you do. Bring out the individual within and create a new direction. Tune into Going Beyond Astrology on SGN http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ Tuesdays at 9pm EST and check out offthecuffe-zine.com (new article on Looking for Love with Venus and love asteroids; also other great articles). May the Divine shower you with love and blessings. Get those intentions out there. Until again. Love, Jan

 

FULL MOON in CANCER, January 12, 2017-Where do the intensified feelings take you?

full-moon-wolf-moonHappy New Year to one and all! Hope you are enjoying the new beginning in your life. Have you finally let the fears behind? Have you grabbed your pen, your paintbrush, your sketchbook to stir up the vision that you choose to create? It is now time. Yes, now!! Not yesterday or tomorrow. Life is quickly going by, the energy is intense and will get more so as the year progresses; so do it now. Did you start anything while Mercury was retrograde at the New Moon in Capricorn? You may have to reevaluate and revise as it just went direct Sunday, January 8, 2017. But it can also be the harvest time for some. Let’s take a look at a few worldly things and then I will talk on the Full Moon.

From Sputnik News: “A highly-anticipated declassified US intelligence report, aimed to prove that Russia supported Donald Trump, has turned out to be a huge embarrassment. The annex that contained factual material that was thought to provide evidence of RT influencing the American public was compiled in December 2012, right after the reelection of Barack Obama.” Yes, that is very true. I just read an article about how the future is being shaped right now in ways that would blow you away in a mind-altering way. What am I saying? Are you ready to deal with cyborgs? On another note it looks like Mr. Trump wishes to go all out about autism in children. That is the best news yet. Don’t worry you can go back to your phones. Never mind. Snow in Venice. Canals are frozen. Antarctica has a huge chunk of ice ready to let go. Did you hear about any of this? And one more thing- states are beginning to reject Common Core education. Hopefully the states that have not even considered doing so will wake up already. Are you paying attention at all or are you just stuck in media speak? Remember if you do not learn to think for yourself then where will it take you? You haven’t seen anything yet. And since today is another 111 portal, some may be surprised at the opening that arrives in the next 7 days. I refer to those who have been paying attention and working on themselves energetically. Enough said.

Full Moon in Cancer visits us on January 12, 2017 at 6:33 am EST; 3:33am PST and 11:33am GMT in 22 degrees 25’. The Sun is in Capricorn at the same degree. Capricorn is about the outside world. And Full Moon in Cancer is about the inner workings of the emotions. Are you feeling the energy building as the Full Moon approaches? It is getting intense now and emotionally volatile. It could go lots of different ways due to the presence of the Grand Square with Jupiter in Libra opposition Uranus in Aries/Eris (goddess of discord) which squares the Full Moon in Cancer and Sun in Capricorn. Are you feeling insecure at this time due to Pluto in Capricorn being involved also since it is conjunct the Sun?  Cooperation and patience will be needed with this aspect. Pluto is opposite the Full Moon and it wants to transform it. This Full Moon is saying to you even if you are feeling insecure you need to find your independence. Yes, you read that right. Where will this Grand Square take you? How nice to have the lovely Uranus /Eris couple sitting in your home at this time. Maybe just lock them away somewhere. Just joking since I am sure they would not like that and would stir the pot even more since Uranus is about the unexpected and Eris loves the discord.

This is a time as with all Full Moons that is telling you that others may be a mirror to help you learn about your own behavior which helps with personal growth. Something may emerge which may call for compromise between partners. Along with this you may be emotionally sensitive.

At last you can feel instead of thinking. How wonderful is that?  No thinking now. It is time to really go deep within and feel the inner being that is you. What does that heart of yours tell you? Do you go with the feelings that come to you and may feel overwhelming at times or will you allow the outer expanses of your daily living to overtake the feeling? You tell me what you choose. I say let the emotions rise; let the feelings come about and see what occurs.

This Full Moon may take you back to your childhood in regards to actions by parents, siblings and/or children involved. Do make sure you stay in balance if something occurs in your home or other setting that triggers a past event in your life from childhood or even past life memories.

In the meantime Mars (passion and drive) and Chiron (wounds) are both in Pisces trining the Full Moon in Cancer. Exciting it is. So if you are looking for the final release on those past patterns, fears and you name it (all those things that have been hanging on and I have talked about for months) then you just might have the gumption to take one final push and say bye to them. What a relief that will be if you can get on board and do it now. Whew. And if crying is part of the process just allow the tears to flow so the healing can take place.

This is an especially good time for looking at relationships and see if they are in balance. If not, then what actually may be causing it to have any disharmonious factors? Are your intentions and their intentions on the same page and how do they play into the whole energy pattern? Now is the time to really dig within and come up with a solution. Along with the Full Moon effect going on then there is Venus conjunct Neptune. This brings about a romantic essence to this moon energy. It may make you a bit dreamy about your relationship or may sweep you off your feet. It is highly intimate. Of course with everything else going on you may just pull back totally and not get involved right at this time. Will it be beautiful or just not going to be a part of your life anymore?

Since Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus in Aries you may find yourself wanting to have a good time and something comes into the mix to shift it. Are you rebelling now against something so that you can keep on doing what you want? It can open it all up to success if you allow it. Is there something unexpected that comes up and throws it all out the door? How will you react? Anyone who is more Uranian may find that you get major inspiration. On the other hand,

Saturn the taskmaster in Sagittarius helps steady the whole dynamic  through respect and having discipline. But since Saturn is inconjunct the Full Moon you may feel a bit uncomfortable with the whole partnership angle even though Jupiter/Uranus is saying what issue. Just do it. Before I take a look at the Saturn influence in your life right now here are some tidbits about the Full Moon for the signs and rising signs:

Aries- In your 4th house of foundations– Engage in practical negotiations. Balance your career with your family and home and things will be ok.

Taurus- In your 3rd house of communication- Major changes may be afoot. Look at what improvements need to be made.

Gemini- In your 2nd house of money and resources-What are you willing to let go and transform?

Cancer- In your own sign/ first house of self tells you that you can put your needs to the forefront and also look at how you relate to others. Take care of you!!!

Leo- In your 12th house of Secrets the Full Moon says no matter what you say others are the mirrors of your soul. You may need to make changes that favor your well-being.

Virgo- In your 11th house of Friends and Community says that you may want to ask others to help you in your quest and stop doing it all yourself. You are still the artist.

Libra- In your 10th house of Career and make yourself visible to those important in your life. You do deserve all that comes to you so be open to it. Watch any power struggles.

Scorpio- In your 9th house of Higher Truth says to you that stop being insecure if you do not have the credentials you need. Some of your beliefs may truly shift. Dramatic time.

Sagittarius- In your 8th house of Deep Sharing-Create a healthy balance in your financial life. Throw out what you no longer need. Transform something in your life.

Capricorn- In your 7th house of Partnerships- Drama may show up. Release that which no longer works and then you can move into a relationship that does. Take your time.

Aquarius- In your 6th House of Work and Health- Time to address any work or health issues. You do gain emotional security from a regular routine.

Pisces- In your 5th House of Love and Creativity- Something may need to be realigned. Speak with your heart not your mind. Make changes starting now that make you happy.

The Sun signs/rising signs that are affected most intensely are Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries in17-25 degrees. Birthdays affected are: July 10-July 18; October 9-17; January 6-14 and April 6-14.

I pulled three Pages of Shustah cards for general influences of the Full Moon in Cancer. They are: (The Candle) which says to throw some light on the issue and ( Lord of Contemplation) says think before acting and (Divine Horse)you get what you need.

Thank you for reading and I wish you lots of blessings for a grand New Year which brings all that you desire now. Check out my radio show Going Beyond Astrology at 9pm EST Tuesdays on SGN. mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air and look for my new January article in offthecuffe.zine.com which is Hawk Medicine and Mercury Retrograde. Stay in the flow at this intense Full Moon in Cancer. Until again. Love, Jan

 

New Moon in Capricorn, December 28/29 2016-Manifesting dreams by releasing all but the authentic you

mountain-path-quote

What an unusual holiday season! How is it going with you and yours this time of celebration? This is a time of new seeds as the New Moon approaches as it is at every new moon. Do you have intentions for the time period and also the coming New Year? Where will it find you in 2017? Same old same old? Or will you take that leap that you have been pondering since the beginning of this past year? And have you let go of the many things that no longer are pertinent to you like grudges, rivalries, past patterns, habits, fears and old behavior? Just wondering how you intend to move forward with any negativity holding you back. The energy that has been coming in has been affecting many of you and you cannot figure out why or what is happening. This energy will continue to get stronger because it is here to wake you up. Yes, that is correct. So, if you are still holding onto the past, do not. Get yourself into a peaceful place and stop bellyaching about who, what, when where and why anything happened in the past to you? Take a look at it and you know what, let it go. Seriously, it is important. It is a very positive thing to do. Try it. I have and have been successful at the releasing of the old.

Odds and ends of the world are beyond my interest anymore. It is as if it is all a bunch of gobbledygook and who cares. It is filled with lies and deceptions so deep it makes my head spin. Oh, yes, there are things that would be good to take a look and assess before going off the deep end. Many famous personalities have passed on this year. They probably got fed up with the craziness- George Michael, Carrie Fisher, of course, Prince, Alan Thicke and a whole lot more through the year. Violence in Germany is out of control. Another earthquake occurred this time in Chile. Snopes has a prostitute checking whether the facts are accurate. And the best I leave for last that President Obama has signed a bill two days before Christmas that makes it illegal to have an alternative news website. Does that mean a blogging website can be taken down? Life is getting really weird.

And now the New Moon in Capricorn arrives on Thursday, December 29, 2016 in 7 degrees 59’ at 1:53am EST, 6:53am GMT and 10:53pm PST (December 28, 2016).  The Sun is also in Capricorn at the same degree. This New Moon can go either way. It is conjunct Mercury Retrograde and sextile fixed star Skat. In sextile to Skat in Pisces it can help to bring good fortune to you especially if you worked hard to get it. It is also sextile Mars in Pisces. Capricorn is the mountain goat. It may be slightly slow in movement yet very little gets by the goat. So what exactly does that mean for you with this New Moon in Capricorn? Well, since it wishes to take everything to the limit it is about leaping within and putting every bit of your mind, spirit and body knowing that it is time to address your mission in life. Are you ready to do this?

Capricorn is an Earth sign so it is grounded and it brings that to you. How can you take the goals you have and fulfill them? One step at a time is the best way since the darkest days are passing and setting them now will bring those dreams and goals to fruition as the light of day becomes longer. Since this New Moon takes place as the old year is ending, it is a time of introspection as to where you have come from, what when on this past year and where in the world you are heading. Some of you have found the 2016 year a total conundrum in more ways than one. I found it fascinating since I relocated with many delays in the process and so many asking me why I chose where I did. The questions were the strangest yet on some level they opened my eyes to more than was obvious. Something occurred in my life that turned my thinking around and what a pleasant surprise when I really found my flaws and chose to release them. How different I feel now. So, yes, it was a chore at times, yet it was growth-producing in such positive ways.

This New Moon may bring some regeneration to you depending how it affects your natal blueprint since it is widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn also. As I mentioned it is sitting with Mercury Retrograde. That makes it very interesting since retrograde motion is about revising, revisiting, renewing, revamping and you pick whatever “re” word you like and that’s what it is about also. What can you bring forward with you into the New Year? What will you need to release? Did you learn from your mistakes of this past year? It is time to take a good look at what fears you still hold, what failures kept you back? Then once you do that you can take a leap forward in the long-term. New Moon in Capricorn conjunct retrograde Mercury is about perseverance and once it climbs that mountain it excels. You basically have to go back to move forward in order for those intentions to take hold. And it is important to stay in the present more than ever as you do this. Being authentic is part of the process. Say what you truly mean but watch your words. Keep in mind that encouraging your loved ones is a big item now.

Some other aspects include Jupiter opposite Uranus. And there it is right in front of you an opportunity of a lifetime. Will you even recognize it? Will you even choose to do anything with it? I hope you do. Remember not to sign anything until Mercury goes direct on January 8, 2017 and to tell you the truth I would wait until around the 13th of January.

What is your most passionate desire regarding your move forward, your goal? Take action upon one goal. The Fixed Star Skat in 9 degrees Pisces sextiles New Moon in Capricorn. That tells me that since Skat is a very favorable star it is about a wish. Is there something that you truly wish in your life? Then Skat will help you get those hopes and wishes if you really deserve them. Since Mars and Neptune are also conjunct Skat and sextile the New Moon in Capricorn it tells you that if you have kept your life running smoothly in many ways then you can manifest your dreams. And on top of that these aspects give you a feeling of romance and sensuality so if you are looking for that dream prince/princess then you never know they just might show up. To help the process overall those inner demons need to be let go. Banish them.

The most intensely affected Sun signs and personal planets are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn at 3-11 degrees. Birthdays affected are March 23-March 31; June 23-July 1; September 25- October 2 and December 23-31. Stay positive!!!

I pulled an Animal Powers card and it is the Horse for strength. Horse will help you with stamina. The Horse meditation will help you move forward on your path.

“Horse spirit, please come to me. I thank you for leaving the freedom of the plains behind. To lighten my load with your strong body and helpful way. And take me to far foo places faster than I could ever go. You help me learn the ways of others and teach them mine. You help me jump over all obstacles on my journey. Your selfless service is an inspiration to all beings.”

Blessings for a very Happy New Year filled with peace, joy, love and good health and lots of cash coming to all. I am so grateful for every one of you who reads Cosmic Leaping. Thank you for you and all you do. Be your authentic self always. I will be back on Going Beyond Astrology again on January 4 at 9pm EST. mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ And check out the offthecuffe.zine.com where I wrote a new article for the January 2017 issue regarding Mercury retrograde and Hawk medicine. Keep your heart light. Until again. Love, Jan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FULL MOON in GEMINI, December 13/14, 2016-Communicate with truth kindly

yellow-3-butterfliesFull Moon is around the bend. It is about communication and maybe once and for all releasing old wounds regarding it. As the energy builds to the Full Moon truth is seeking you out since the past new moon. Have you allowed it in or are you going to resist seeing what it has in store for you? Did you get to see who people really are in the last weeks? So many openings are occurring yet many of you refuse to accept them. Is there something that you would rather be doing than enjoying the momentary lull in the madness that came from this past new moon?  It is certainly up to you yet, I feel there is some kind of hesitance with many who continue to sit in the past and therefore nothing changes. Life will bring great joy if you truly change your belief. WILL YOU choose to do that? On the other hand are you willing to fight for what is rightfully the truth? Stay with the thought that you and your world may have to go up against those who are wishing to destroy your freedoms. Keep that in mind as you move through the energy that is getting more intense as the days go by and will shift considerably in the next couple of weeks.

Before I talk about the Full Moon in Gemini since the energy is changing that is why there have been so many unusual events occurring leading up to the election and continuing into the present. There have been earthquakes, asthma clouds (really?-no comment), and now here comes that Arctic blast of frigid air. The Full Moon is right on Mr. Trump’s Sun in Gemini/Moon in Sagittarius. That makes life very interesting for him in the next couple of weeks. Will there be no election or will someone totally different be placed in power? The Pennsylvania recount has been halted. Trump needs some bulletproof glass in front. I guess there will be an answer after the Electoral College meets on December 19 or even in the next few days. Of course, what happens in the meantime may be beyond your wildest imagination or maybe just a bone-chilling event. There is something going on so do pay attention so that you can take a leap without being caught up in the consequences of those who wish to control the world.  Hopefully the White Hats are going to swoop in and take care of biz.

On Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 7:05pm EST, 4:05pm PST, and 12:05am GMT on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 the Full Moon arrives. It is in 7 degrees 42’ Gemini and the Sun is in the same degree in Sagittarius. It is saying to come from a spiritual perspective instead from your fear-based thinking. Are you still out there fighting or will you come from a place of balance to speak to those who are not thinking like you are? Gemini is about communication about hearing the truth since Sagittarius is about truth. So will you be able to discern the information that comes to you regarding this truth or will you block it out? The Full Moon is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius which is conjunct the Sun. Chiron in Pisces is squaring (90degrres) the Full Moon in Gemini/Sun in Sagittarius so it is also about seeing what truly is in your hearts which is the truth. Are those old emotional wounds drowning your dreams? Are you on track to see what you need to heal? My new business card will have an old saying which this Full Moon states boldly-Change your thinking, change your life. You may wish to join me in that mantra and write it down and hang it in view on your desk or fridge.

There may be so much information overload that you see or hear nothing. This is what you are using to distract yourself from knowing the truth of you. Why would you choose to do that?  What are you failing to let go at this time? Are you still holding onto an old belief or thought pattern?  Dig deeply to find out. As I said in the beginning it is about communication since Mercury rules Gemini and Mercury is in Capricorn catching up with Pluto as the Full Moon energy is in progress. Pluto and Mercury are conjunct also as it retrogrades on December 19. The Electoral College will be meeting then as I previously mentioned. It is also about possible sudden changes in relationships since you are shifting in frequency. It is about looking within and hearing the inner voice so that you may know your truth.

Have you been communicating with your heart or have you been being passive-aggressive? This is a time to watch what you say to yourself and to others because it may set off a deep wound which you have carried since childhood. Why not come from a place within which offers a bit of nurturing. If you cannot accept nurturing then you are still living in the wound. How do you choose to heal if you refuse to accept that? This Gemini Full Moon is also telling you to stop talking and start listening. Oh, now, wait a minute that says whoever is talking is talking too much and not letting others in on the conversation. If I may be a bit over the top asking but when was the last time you had a real conversation. You have been too immersed in your phone, your TV or social media. C’mon now. How about just being and see what happens? You may be surprised that there can be a lighthearted interaction which can be fun. Sorry to disturb you…go back to your phone and don’t be surprised when you suddenly find yourself not knowing what just happened. It is a time of peace, joy and love. Open up to it no matter what else is going on and see how good things arrive in your life.

The Gemini Full Moon does take part in a grand trine (favorable) with Mars in Aquarius and Jupiter in Libra. This is so nice for a change. Use it to your advantage especially if you have planets in the Air signs near these planets. Jupiter in Libra is about relationships. Where is the balance in your relationships? If you have Sun/Moon or rising in Libra, Aries or Capricorn-these signs desire lots of change. Can you say complete revamping of personal, family and work life? There may be an opportunity coming to you depending where it is in your natal blueprint. Something is flowing so go with it. On the other hand you still have to be observant and in balance since Jupiter is in a T-square with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. Otherwise it may get chaotic and you lose out. Along with these aspects guess what is coming up? Oh yes, Mercury is going retrograde on December 19. How kind of this trickster to show up right on that important day! Mercury is saying at that time to plan your next steps and pull back a bit and revise, revisit any part of your ongoing plans. More on Mercury retrograde in the next post.

The Full Moon in Gemini intensely affects those who have Sun/Moon and any personal planets (Mercury, Venus and Mars) in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces at 19- 26 degrees. If you do not have your natal chart go set one up on Astro.com. This is wake up time for many of you.

Pages of Shustah card pull for the Full Moon in Gemini- Lord of Benevolence/The card of Self/the Butterflies. Amazing!!! Surrender and call in the Spirit/Will you show up with ego or the true self / Change comes to help move forward

Thank you so much for reading and I wish you well as the changes come to everyone. Listen to your heart so that then you can change what needs shifting. Better you change it then outside energy does. Have a beautiful time and know that since today is 12/12 it is an important portal for many who wish to leap. Next opening is 12/21. Be well and many blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
