Hello dear ones. Sorry for the delay in posting this. Tax season is almost over and I am back on track again after some last minute clients. Life is certainly a bit interesting with Mercury being retrograde for the last few weeks but it turns stationary direct today and moves forward Monday the 16th. Now you can sign those contracts or important papers, buy technology or just not be in that Trickster energy. The week begins with a New Moon in Aries, the sign of the self. A new Moon provides the impetus to consider what is best for you. If this feels a little selfish, bear in mind that you can’t give to others if your own store cupboard is empty. Both Saturn and Pluto turn retrograde this week on 17th and 22nd respectively. This provides a welcome break from pressing concerns.
I believe that madness has overtaken many in the world. I know many feel that Mr. Trump is not who you would like as President yet instead of bemoaning every movement, why not think about how you would like it to be in this country and other places around the globe. Do not worry I will not bring political fodder to this post other than to point out one thing. Yet, do you really and truly know the truth? No biggie. Life is just a bit of the Dunning Kruger effect and it is now epidemic. It Is a new low in the American way when physicians ask if you have guns in your home. It has now become the way of life where you are told how to live your life – completely out of touch with what is real. I read a short article that said something like this…did you ever hear from a parent that you cannot fight city hall? Well, just imagine if President Trump tries to do that. Enough said. No comment on Syria other than it is not what it seems. Move on.
As I am finishing writing this post, the New Moon in Aries is almost rising on the Pacific Coast and has just done so in Hawaii and other places around now. So, what is the New Moon going to bring to you? It arrives today, April 15, 2018 at 6:57pm PDT; 9:57pm EDT and April 16 1:57am GMT in 26 degrees 2’. If you have been stuck in the rut or just have little motivation in doing anything in the past month then this is a time when it is time to step up. This New Moon in Aries is the first new moon after the Equinox in Aries on March 20. If you are looking for a supercharged leap then this is it. New moons are always about rebirth and possible new beginning. The Sun is in the same degree in Aries. For me it is time to put on the brakes in several areas. Yes, that is truly right on. Who is going to pull me into drama? On the other hand it is time for some revamping of various areas so new starts can show up in my life. Speaking of drama-if you are so inclined try some meditation or yoga instead of speaking out of turn.
Uranus in Aries is conjunct the New Moon within 2 degrees. Uranus being here says expect some sudden changes or the unexpected depending where it shows up in your natal chart. Uranus loves being in Aries and has been for years and soon will move into Taurus. In the meantime it is saying to you that get out of the fear mode already. There are many of you who know what I am talking about. Let the fear go…it is that ego that is getting in the way…and for once go with the flow as you see things coming to fruition. Pick it…be stuck in your fear or leap?
Do you know who Eris is? She is hanging around the New Moon in Aries and she likes to create discord. It could be a wild ride for many of you, yet somewhere in the energy it can help you move through any stagnant energy that has built up in the past few months. If you are creative, you may manifest an opening. When was the last time you followed your passion? Now is the time to see how it can shift your life considerably. What are you waiting for? You need to do this or you will create chaos in your daily living. Create with passion and watch the shift!!
Moving forward will be a bit easier since as I mentioned Mercury goes direct at the New Moon. And it also is within a few degrees of Chiron (the wounded healer) in the last degree of Pisces. You no longer have to be a victim due to your wounds. It is time to bring on a new perspective which will help your healing and going forward. This is time to let it go already. Whatever the wound is from the past or current time, it is time to release it. Stop holding onto something that no longer serves you. By doing so, it inhibits doing what you came to do in this lifetime. Even though Chiron will move into Aries (warrior energy) you may still have the effect of the wound but it will not hold you back. Compassion is now present. And stop the looking back already.
So are you ready to gather that energy and bring it together since Mars in Capricorn (it is exalted here)? Now is the time for perseverance, persistence and focus for you dreams to become reality. It will inspire you if you just pay attention. Pluto is also in Capricorn along with Saturn. Oh, boy, so where will this entire set-up take you? Will it shore up your power? Will you allow new beginnings or will you just create complications? Are you going to sit there and watch life go by or are you actually going to take action in a slow methodical way? Try to keep from rushing into any action.
In case you are looking for some coziness then Venus is in Taurus may bring it to you. She loves every minute of it since she is trine (around 120 degrees and favorable) to Mars in Capricorn. Is it sexual or sensual? Also Venus in Taurus is trine Pluto in Capricorn which says to those of you looking for new romance it may just pop up in your life. Those in a relationship will have increased interest in your significant other. Some may find a new individual who is mysterious. Venus will enter Gemini on the 24th, which is always a good position for socializing and flirtation!
Some new moon essential oils especially for the Aries New Moon are: Cinnamon and black pepper. For a new moon generally some of these work well- Myrrh (calms mind and emotions), Orange (optimistic and detaches from drama), and Jasmine (helps resistance to change). It is time to have red flowers around since Aries loves the color red. New Moon in Aries comes about, bringing a new creation as you flow, no fear allowed as you walk on through, stay steady and confident In the know.
Thank you for reading and sharing if you will. I appreciate all that you do in your lives at this New Moon in Aries. Stay on a steady course, let go of the fears and find that creative passion that leads you to a new beginning. Will let you know more about the radio show that is coming soon. Many blessings! Until again. Love, Jan
Hello dear ones. It is spring.. And fall has begun in the Southern Hemisphere. Here I am seeing the birds sing in the trees which finally dropped the snow from their branches. What a crazy time it has been! In the midst of the chaos have you taken a breath? Have you recently discovered a blissful moment? The Spring Equinox came and then the Trickster showed up. Mercury did go retrograde. Oh no, hide…run…what now? More on that later! Where are you now? Wishing your life was different yet doing nothing about it, is that it? How can you change it? You know you would like to do so, and then do it. Had some momentary madness myself lately and it took a hide under the covers and do nothing kind of day that got me back on track. Yes, crazy as it seems, it did work. Now I am just pushing through the blocks that are self-created. Wow, did I say that? Onward you go without knowing where the moment takes you. Yes, the moment. Oh, that’s right; you live in the past or the future. You need to be right here, right now. Perfect. Take a breath and maybe just break out into a couple of bars from Sweet Caroline. That may do the trick. Breathe dear ones. The Full Moon is just about upon us. In the meantime-
By the way how are you feeling today? Good, bad or indifferent? Does it matter to you that your social media life is fully monitored? I do hope you are aware that your data is being traded. You did not. Or you do not care. No big deal. Of course, much has been going on for a very long time but since you download those apps and do those quizzes on FB, then do not complain about viruses because they do send them periodically. And don’t worry about your info being traded for ads and products and you name it. I have nothing against the basic premise of sharing insights and such, but it is now beyond that and has always been the main dance of FB. On another track- I have heard that the same students who are anti-gun are supporting Monsanto. They are saying that herbicides have no effect on hormones. The rat hole is getting deeper and deeper. Just read something that says some sixth grader had to dance with a boy she did not choose to dance with. Wow. My head is spinning. I think I will go back to my cave.
Ta da!! The FULL MOON in Libra is ready to appear as it opposes the Sun in fiery Aries. Partnerships are in the limelight at this time. It is the second Full Moon in the month of March. It arrives on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 8:36am EDT; 5:36am PDT; and 12:36pm GMT in 10 degrees 44’. It is a time that may bring up matters regarding whether you allow others to be themselves and they allow you to be your truth. What has been going on since the Spring Equinox occurred? Have there been any changes? The Sun in Aries likes to move forward. The Full moon in Libra is asking you to look at what is working or not in a relationship. You are advised to think about where you are heading on your path. Then again, are you on track? It is time to be the authentic self that you came to be. So many in these times hide behind a mask and life is about truth-your truth. So, this is a time to look within and see how your truth is affecting others in your life especially any partnership. It is time to slow down and relook at how you are progressing. What needs shifting in a relationship?
Mars in Capricorn is conjunct Saturn in Capricorn within a degree. How fast you wish to move forward is being dragged along since Saturn likes to takes its time and Mars is always in a hurry. Chill. Look at what you would like to occur, revisit anything that is up for change and revise. Let go that which no longer works. Someone asked me how to let go. Letting go is about identifying what is a block (belief). Can you then accept that you have held onto this and maybe it is time to love/embrace it and let it go? Done! Being is all there is. No judgement is necessary. It is time to stop the fear and be aware of what it is that is holding you back. And that is important in any relationship because it brings out the illusion since you are holding onto a false premise. Release at the Full Moon if you can. At least become aware of what it is that you are holding onto. Mars and Saturn both in Capricorn are square the Full Moon in Libra and Sun in Aries. This is a time when your relationships may be under scrutiny as to what it is you have to stay on track and how you take other’s desires into account. Since much is about relationships this time around please keep your eyes open and be careful about being pulled into an underworld that may take you off track. It may be romantic, but is it? Is there someone who is looking to take advantage of you? Open your eyes and see the truth.
On a higher note Venus is the beginning degree in Taurus which is all about self-love and self-worth. Remember what you see manifesting in a relationship is a reflection of your own self. Venus in Taurus trines (favorable) Mars and Saturn in Capricorn which is saying to slow down and enjoy the pleasures and present moment instead of constant goal reminders. You will get there. Just be. Breathe.
Fixed star Vindemiatrix is within a few minutes of the Full Moon. I know it is blue. Is that why you are down and out right now? It is not even about that. Wake up. This fixed star is about disgrace and worry. It may bring disappointment. Enough of that!
Mercury in Aries is opposite the Full Moon. Do you pay attention to your gut instincts or your mind? Maybe you need to just find an audience and let it all out. Communicate no matter what you feel or think. Some of you will not understand why you are not feeling so great. Do you have to be so sad, so depressed and unwilling to adjust your mood? And along with this energy Mercury is retrograde as of March 22nd and goes backwards until April 15. It is certainly saying stop, revise, regroup and take another look at what is going on in your life. Full Moons are usually about release and since Mercury is in Aries and only 2 degrees away from the Sun and opposing the Full Moon this is not a time to begin anew. It is imperative that you watch your words at this time. Remember that even though you may not say things out loud, they can manifest from what you believe strongly. This is one of those times. Some things to do as Mercury is retrograding are: Take a closer look at what you are doing in your life re: your goals; renew old friendships; look for new opportunities that may have not been obvious; create more joy in your relationship; and reclaim your power within. Go ahead and try this.
As I said earlier in this post it is important to release that which no longer brings joy to your heart and is far from your truth. Lots of lies out there in the news and there may be something major that is fake. Will you be so immersed that you actually go with the lies? If there is bullying in your life then stand up for yourself since it is the time to do so. And a couple more reminders- do not sign major contracts, important agreements; stay away from making major purchases; and do celebrate what you have in a relationship instead of starting with someone new.
Celebrate a relationship whether personal or business if you are on track and if not then reclaim the balance within so that you can then resolve what needs healing. Thank you for reading and commenting if you will. Share also the link to those who may not know about it. Lots of good things are present if you open your eyes. Keep your power instead of giving it away. It is time to enjoy the relationship as an authentic part of your life and also enjoy your independence. Blessings for a magnificent Full Moon in Libra! Until again. Love, Jan
Hello dear ones. New Moon in Pisces is just about ready to arrive. In the meantime how many of you have had enough snow to take you through to next winter? Yes, me too. Have always liked the winter yet I have had enough. Nothing I can do about the weather but I can do something about me and my life. What are you ready to let go in your lives since it is the end of the year with this New Moon’s arrival and the Spring Equinox coming a few days later. Are you ready to take that leap, big or small, forward? Have you given up taking everything personally? Is compassion taking the place of anger? A rebirth is going to take place as the new astrological year begins with the Spring Equinox. This is shifting time dear ones. And where it takes you is up to you. It may make you seem more tired than usual again. If you are constantly on Social Media or TV it is keeping you stuck and you are missing what you are here to do .I see many of you still have resistance to things that pop up in your lives. Release the negatives already.
As I sit and ponder what to say this time around I am perplexed by those of you who constantly need to be on Facebook with that screen in front of you. And what concerns me is this- do any of you at this point talk to another human being in the flesh? I see crude actions, lack of respect, no manners and a gazillion other things that are telling me you are not in control of your own life. I watched some college basketball tournament games this past weekend and everywhere I looked when I changed the channel for a moment there was a commercial break. I walk out of the room…maybe that just gives me the exercise of the moment. If I see another drug commercial I am going to throw up. It is totally control-oriented. Drugs do not cure…most exacerbate the situation and then you get more drugs. Wake up. I just saw that Mike Adams and The Health Ranger YouTube channel has been taken down. Obviously they do not like natural health and have no justification for doing so. And do you know that in Canada there is now something called micro-aggression which if someone doesn’t like what you say or do then look out. It is another way to divide and conquer. R.I.P. Stephen Hawking.
In this present moment it is about taking the time to do things one step at a time. The Solar Eclipse of last month had energy that could last up to a year. So, where are you going to allow it to enhance your creativity, productivity and focus? Did you make that list of things you wish to have happen? And at this present time of the New Moon in Pisces where will you clear off those mundane things…doing your tax return, clearing out junk so you can start fresh with the spring. You want to begin something new as the month continues on, Get your creative flow going with your dreaming about what you wish to begin at this time. Take charge and merge with the deeper energy.
The New Moon in Pisces arrives on Saturday, March 17, 2018 (my daughter’s birthday) at 9:11am EDT (top of the morning to you); 6:11am PDT; and 1:11pm GMT in 26degrees 53’. The Sun is at the exact degree of the New Moon. As I said this is a major shift time. Reach within for any answers that may be needed to take a leap. Clear your mind and take a breath and just be present for a few minutes and see what comes to you. Pisces is all about dreams, meditation, sleep, taking time for fun, and even music and art. What have you been doing in these areas? Anything? Nothing? Take some time to explore and relax a bit before you make a move forward.
I have realized a few years back that one needs to take some time off from a hectic schedule whether at work, travel or life in general. That is how one gets to leap higher and although you want it now, it is important to be refreshed so you recognize the opening.
The wounded healer Chiron is conjunct (within 2 degrees) of the New Moon in Pisces. What an opportunity it brings to you for healing and reviewing the past years, seven to be exact, to see how far you have advanced on the spiritual path and also the healing that has taken place. Yes, there have been wounds yet the healing is in process and shifts can take place. Chiron will enter Aries on April 17, 2018. That will be an interesting ride for all. Oh yes. It comes back to Pisces on September 25 and then goes fully into Aries in February 2019 for 8 years. Mars in the last degree of Sagittarius is square the New Moon in Pisces and Chiron. The word for this is impatience and a total restless feeling. Oh, that sure does not help the creative dream mode, now does it? Well, you have to work around it. This is a time to release any judgement and move into a higher love for all kind of feeling. Oh, yes, some of you may not like that letting go yet it will shift your world immensely. On the other hand there is someone who may come in and disturb your balance resulting in a power struggle of some sort or the other taking over in a different way. Watch that you do not get pulled in. Stay away from the aggressive mode when someone is irritating you. Resolve any confrontation with your boss, an unknown enemy or anyone who is stuck in their rut and may be even jealous. Once you do this a surprise may occur or an unexpected opportunity may present itself since Mars in Sagittarius is also trine Uranus in Aries. Mars in Sagittarius is square the Sun in Pisces may open up more inappropriate sexual conduct in high places.
On another note Jupiter is in Scorpio in trine (favorable) to the New Moon in Pisces, Sun and Chiron. This gives you an opportunity to go within to bring your dream out there. This is an advantageous time for bringing your dream into reality. Just keep that dream alive by letting the healing take place no matter what goes on. This is also a good time for sexual healing in a partnership. And although you may be distracted good things can show up when you least expect it.
Some oils to use for better feeling and dreaming- sandalwood, eucalyptus, It is the perfect time to settle yourself into a relaxed state and just allow your intuition to roll out. New relationships come in for those who are out there; old ones leave when the energy is no longer good for growth. Setting out to sail on the seas of new beginnings may be exactly what you need to do unless that March wind roars and you may have to pull back a bit for calmer waters. You will know how to move through it.
Thank you for reading and commenting. I am most grateful for the new beginning this New Moon brings to all. Be patient and all will flow. Check out a new show which I will be co-hosting with Patricia Nixon aka Sprinkles https://offthecuffe-zine.com/blog/new-show-coming-4-4-18/?no_cache=1 .It begins on April 4 at 9pm EDT. It should be lots of fun and inspiring. Have a beautiful New Moon in Pisces dear ones. Until again. Love, Jan
Here we go again dear ones. It is time for the ongoing clearing and some possible turnarounds in your life. So much energy coming through with the past Solar Eclipse and it is creating some chaos as usual. Did you make your list of what you choose to accomplish in the next months? It is a good thing to have done at the Solar Eclipse which just passed and the energy continues. In the meantime the craziness ensues. Do stay in the present time and you will be amazed at the good that comes from it. It is time to let go. Really let go of that which no longer serves you.
Have you stayed off your phone for more than a couple of minutes? I had stopped by a small store for a couple of minutes as I traveled the other day and as I waited to pick something up to eat I noticed 3 young ladies in their twenties who were also waiting and were constantly checking their phones. I am fascinated by the constant gazing at the phones. What is so important that you cannot go a few minutes or how about a few hours without looking at your phone? Oh, no, with that kind of question I may be banned from the world. Do you ever actually have a real conversation with anyone? When was the last time you really looked at your life and knew that you were actually on track and taking big leaps on your path? Do not fret if you know not what your path is. If you are present to the current moment it shows up in front of you. That is why I always suggest keeping your eyes open in case it flies by and you miss it. Just want to digress for one moment…do check out the new/old law about net neutrality. It is not what it seems.
As the Full Moon in Virgo approaches have you thought about how you can simplify your life. How are you being of service to others? It could be something you do outside your job. It is about the job well done and also looking at your health and how to get it on a better track. Do you need to exercise more or do you just need to handle the stressfulness of your life? How are you handling the details of the job or of your own life? That is the bottomline of the Full Moon in Virgo which arrives on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 7:51pm EST, 4:51pm PST and on Friday March 2, 2018 at 12:51am GMT in 11degrees 27’.
The Full Moon in Virgo is an Earth sign which has a focus to it. And the Sun in Pisces is all about the spiritual nature. Heaven and earth are opposed to each other. The Moon in Virgo is going about your service and daily business with much concentration. It is all about the details. Yet Sun in Pisces is about dreaming. With the Sun in Pisces conjunct (within 2 degrees) Neptune there is a chance to not seeing what is really in front of you. Neptune sometimes brings a bit of confusion since it is opposing the Moon. Yet, there is something that triggers the mystery within and brings about an intuitive grounding to your presence. Also, there is some kind of deception that may be hanging on in intimate relationships. There are many shifting currents so just go with it and see what occurs. A new perspective on the entire connection will come out of the shifting that is taking place. Go with it and let it clear out any old wounds. This wound healing may show up from Chiron being in Pisces at this time along with the Sun All of a sudden you may be caught in a dream state that brings turbulence and upsetting energy. Some irritability may also show up during the few days around the Full Moon. (I think it has been affecting me for weeks. Must be the Eclipse- Wonderful) Do watch out for imagining things that have nothing to do with the situation that pops up. Seriously, it is not what it seems at times. Just let it ride right by you. Pay attention to what you are feeling and then let it go unless it is something that could be discussed first.
Some of you may be truly affected by this energy that has been totally outrageous. It is causing many to have anger for no reason other than to show it in an outlandish way. The other day I was walking across a parking lot and the guy driving the car just kept driving as I was crossing over to the sidewalk. I was astounded since he really almost took me away with him since it mattered not to him that I was crossing. Just unbelievable the way the world is acting out there. Manners have gone by the wayside. Funny thing-Virgo is the sign of perfection. I have no planets in Virgo yer I look to have courtesy for others. Manners count. And that is another part of this Full Moon.
It is a time to observe. Do not react to whatever shows up because it may be as I said not what it seems when it comes to you. Think about how you say things at this time so that there is no offense in the communication. And do not let someone prod you into reacting in a volatile way. That is what they are looking for so the individual can say it is your doing. Stop. Breathe. Remember that whatever is happening is for you to realize it is for your highest good. And if you are looking to think deeply right now forget about it for the few days around the Full Moon in Virgo. It isn’t happening.
The Full Moon in Virgo is trine (harmonious aspect 120 degrees) to Saturn in Capricorn which keeps you on track. You may be looking to move fast but this is the energy that says slow down and just move one step at a time. Channel whatever you are doing into a more constructive energy. You will get to where you are going. Mercury in Pisces is square (conflict 90 degrees) to Mars in Sagittarius. Oh boy. Not everyone has the same vision in life. Stay out of the fracas.
And no it is not all nuts. Venus in Pisces is trine (120 favorable degrees) Jupiter in Scorpio. YAY. This is saying that there is luck in love and possibly some other area of your life. If you make any investments it is sure to bring an increase in wealth. And if you have any offers that come to you, it is a wise thing to accept. If you are someone who loves the artistic works as a craftsman or other kinds of detailed art or jewelry making then this is your time to excel. You may choose to do a short meditation daily to get you back on track. Try using some Lavender or Bergamot to help you. And you may choose to soak in a tub and add some essence.
Those most intensely affected by this Full Moon in Virgo are: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn Suns, Moons and Ascendants between 6 and 13 degrees of the signs. If you have any other personal planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars) in those signs and degrees then you too may be affected.
Thank you for reading and commenting if you like. Keep your heart light shining to bring the love through whenever the chaos surrounds you and you will leap higher. There is another Full Moon in March on the very last day. Keep your focus within your dream. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello again dear ones. Are you out there in the crowd, walking the talk or shouting out loud? Or are you peering within to view, the magnificence of the inner you? It has been a very unreal week of intense agony, unpredictable anger and just plain nonsense in other cases. What have you been doing to walk through the chaos which accompanies the intense Solar Eclipse energy? It has been a week since the New Moon Solar Eclipse occurred on February 15, 2018. (I just entered 2017…must be the craziness) What have been your intentions? Are there some seeds you truly wish to plant now so manifestation can take place in months ahead? The eclipse energy lasts about six months. If you are willing to give it a go then here are some suggestions for this next week before the Full Moon shows up on March 1-2, 2018. You still have time to do so since it is best to do this before this next full moon comes in..
The first thing to do is to find a quiet spot wherever you are at this time. Get a pen and paper and write down your list of things that you would like to come to fruition. I suggest about 50 minimum; more if you are ambitious. And do keep them positive and dream big!!!
Here are some examples:
- I will start a new business.
- I will buy a horse.
- I will go out in the world and help others.
- I will go on a wild water adventure.
- I will take a break from texting.
- I will be a TV star.
- New friends come into my life.
- A promotion comes to me.
Keep writing! You need those 50 intentions.
Once you make your list put it in an envelope, seal it, write date on it and put it someplace safe that is special to you. Or you may wish to give it a blessing and put it in your desk or other drawer. Do not open again for about 6 months and see what you have manifested in your life from that list.
Just wanted to take a moment and share this with you. It took your mind away from all the noise that is going on around you. Stay in the moment and have a beautiful week. Full Moon in Pisces is arriving on March 1-2. If you haven’t been bringing more simplicity in your life then the Full Moon will help. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello dear ones. Someone said I was a bit too much on the edge or maybe just trying to wake you up, in the last post. That’s ok because the truth is all there is. Before the New Moon/Solar Eclipse pops in let me ask you this… how was the energy of the Full Moon in Capricorn for you? Did you allow the release to show up or do you continue to walk in fear? And now immediately before the New Moon comes in you will find yourself in the Valentine’s Day energy. Did you know there is an asteroid named Valentine? It is a true love aspect. Depends where it falls in your natal chart will signify where you make sacrifices for your true love. Hope you are having a Happy Valentine’s Day.
I have been noticing how intense some of you are. I am picking it up strongly. Do you feel it? It is not just the surrounding energy but also the frenetic energy of you. What is happening within you? Open your eyes dear ones now and notice the way life surrounds you; wouldn’t it be a wonder if you can take a leap that brings a new vision into your view? What makes you most happy? This Aquarian New Moon loves to be in the moment. HA. Yes, my favorite thing. What makes you feel free? Does this free feeling come from a walk in the forest, looking out over the ocean, dancing around the house or extreme exercising? What is it that brings that joy of freedom to you? That is what Aquarius likes and is all about. Aquarius is a visionary, a seer also. So when the New Moon /Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius arrives on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 4:05pm EST, 1:05pm PST, and 9:05pm GMT in 27degrees 07’ what is it telling you? It asks- where do you choose to be? Are you still hanging onto the past trash that has inhibited you from moving in the direction that will open big doors for you? What keeps you so mired in your detours of the mind? You surely are choosing to rise above this and take that leap. Will you? It is time for a reboot with this new moon/solar eclipse. Will you take the opportunity to open your eyes to a new vision or idea that may change your world in some way? Something changes in a big way. That is going to happen for everyone. Just know that things will shift whether you are ready or not. The New Moon is conjunct (within one-two degrees) of Juno and Mercury. Both are right there in Aquarius. Juno is the asteroid of marriage, loyalty and commitment. Some of you may find a partner in your life now if you do not have one. It is about looking within and seeing how the old rules fit the new paradigm. Do you dream only that your relationship is perfect? Some may find a new and better way to do things in your marriage. And some may find an ending.
With this New Moon /Solar Eclipse in Aquarius there are endings. Things and people who no longer need to be in your life will leave. This is what Solar Eclipses do. No regrets please. This is a time for you to leap without anyone holding you back. If someone leaves it is due to the fact they no longer have a purpose in your life at this time. Let go. Strange dreams may occur and old memories rise from the depths of your psyche. Mercury in Aquarius is also eclipsed since it is only a degree away from the New Moon. It says to you that it is time to let the rush of your outside world go and step within already. Many of you have been emerged into a craziness of the mainstream news and worldly events. Now is more of a time of finding that inner you and opening to a new perspective. The New Moon is also square Jupiter in Scorpio and sextile Uranus in Aries. This makes for surprising events to take place or unexpected news. As Bob Dylan said, “times they are a changin’ ’” Remember that Aquarius represents the collective. This is a truly a major turning point for everyone. In some ways it is the final clearing out of the sludge in your life and allowing it to be taken away by a flash of the mind. On the other hand it brings you the opportunity for a new beginning as most new moons do. With it having an extra push to it with the Partial Solar Eclipse it will provide you with openings taking leaps and getting back on track. This is the first of five eclipses this year. There was a Lunar Eclipse on January 31, 2018. There is a Solar Eclipse coming up on the February 15, 2018 which is the one in this post. Then there is one on July 12 and August 11. And a total Lunar Eclipse comes around on July 27, 2018. Shifting and more shifting is now the norm. Let go and allow the new vision to come in.
And if you need to release something that is holding you back do it the Native Americans way. Write the situation out on paper and then put the paper in a heat-proof container/pot and light it on fire. As you watch the smoke go up think about what you are letting go to Spirit and release from your life. Do it in a safe place. Now you can move on.
Aries – Suddenly you may be in the spotlight for some ability that is unique. You have ideas that others now see as favorable insights. Run with them and support comes. Do not let others infer that you are selfish due to the new way of thinking. Look for expansion in your life.
Taurus – What is you plan these days career-wise? Do you have an idea that you may choose to use in starting your own business? This is time for something new that exhilarates and excites your path. Forget what others tell you to do. It is now your vision. Do it. Support comes.
Gemini –Are you looking to travel to faraway places? A dream come true may show up. Or do you have something that you can share with others that will give you some major expertise? You may get a better view of the world by taking some course that advances your knowledge.
Cancer –How are you going to pay off those bills? You are now looking for financial security. Even some sensual pleasure can be in the mix of the Eclipse especially if your budget is on track. Something may show up out of the blue and it changes for the better.
Leo – If you are looking to merge with others either in a partnership or business now is the time. Express how you feel about your relationship so far and how it has affected you. Understand their needs and yours too. A new alliance is also favored.
Virgo – Whatever you are doing workwise may change because you choose to go it alone. Stop thinking in a conventional manner and your life may light up with this change. You may want to change your appearance slightly or do something better healthwise.
Libra Have you been having creative ideas lately such as a design or book? This may be time for a big breakthrough. Keep it lively. Your partner may inspire you with new ideas and your family is supportive. Go for it.
Scorpio –You need to make your lifestyle your own not what your family taught you. Live your truth. How do you hope to redesign your living? Find greater excitement in your life. Get together with others with a goal in mind.
Sagittarius – Change your attitude. Be positive in every way whether it is money you need or love that is out there, Be thankful for what you have, Think about what you choose to experience and it appears.
Capricorn -What opportunity is in front of you? You name it and you can do it. Write something, talk about another idea and get yourself out there. Forget the corporate. Be unique and support will come. Your purchasing power improves.
Aquarius What is your main vision for yourself? This is a big time for you. Stop limiting your actions and your thoughts. Change what needs to be changed and walk forward. Be your unconventional self and see what happens.
Pisces – Get rid of childhood beliefs. If you are fearful where is it taking you? Love and more love is needed within yourself. Then you will find a breakthrough. Dream symbols may be intense and help with taking a leap.
Thank you again for reading and sharing if you will. I appreciate any comments that you may have. May you be blessed as you walk through the New Moon Solar Eclipse. Allow yourself to shift something so that life is exciting and feels like new. Check out offthecuffe-zine.com for other articles. Until again. Love, Jan
Dear ones …Is love within your sight? The depth of it takes on the darkest night, and stirs the passion of your path so true, leading you forward to a leap so new! If you do not allow love to bloom then how do you take that leap? Many out there today are so enraptured in hatred. Instead of being loving your judging reigns supreme. What has occurred in the world is so far from following Universal laws that it takes everyone so off track. No wonder life is so frenzied; the energy is so erratic. Will you contribute to the chaos with the negative thoughts and actions? If so, my suggestion is to take a breath and see what is within yourself that you dislike so much and finally let it go so you can heal.
Since I was a former librarian with a research bent it is now ironic that I cannot even be inspired to read much on the Net or watch the news. There are some things which still interest me but the bottomline is that it is all about pushing products and services and drugs. It is about influencing you and me every step of the way. And a week or two ago I said it is done. I will go on periodically so that I am not totally in the dark about whether the world is going to disappear and so forth. You think I am kidding. When was the last time you actually did something without looking at your phone? I say this more often lately because I have no tolerance of it. You are controlled and you do not even know it. Some know this and some do not pay attention to it…what you think is what you attract. And if you allow your mind to have some space, yes, space, and then guess what- brilliance shows up in your life. Ideas flow to you, you are aware of the next step and you actually are calm and peaceful. Have you been that way lately?
Where is your peaceful heart if you hate the President or anyone else? The deep state war-mongers want war. Syria may finally get the peace it wants. Theresa May at the Davos gathering says the Internet is exposing the lies and it needs to stop. Keep the exposing going. And did you know on a different note that AminoSweet is the new name for Aspartame. So if you consume the poison you won’t notice any difference. Just want those who may be averse to being poisoned be aware of the name change.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo which is also a blue moon (second one of the month) arrives on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 8:26am EST, 5:26am PST and 1:26pm GMT in 11 degrees 37”. The Sun is in Aquarius at the same degree. A total lunar eclipse is what happens when the sun, Earth, and moon form a straight or nearly straight line and all of the light coming from the sun casts the shadow of Earth on the moon. You can observe a shadow covering the entire moon. Total lunar eclipses only happen during a full moon. Since it is in Leo what kind of drama may appear in your life? Could it be more like the diva coming out? Mercury joins Venus and the Sun in Aquarius bringing some laid back socializing. Full Moon in Leo likes the limelight showing the world all your talents and gifts. It is all about creativity, leadership, playful times, and being in the spotlight. It is time to express yourself using your unique self-expression. And you know what, play like you were a child. Where it appears in your chart is where you shine. This Full Moon Leo brings out the loud mouth if that is something that is inherent or even hidden in your chart. And beware the narcissistic tendencies of anyone who goes in that direction. It may get too dramatic for you. Just so happens that it falls in my third house natally conjunct Pluto which says to me that I like to speak out and watch how I communicate to anyone. The truth definitely rules. Do add some love to the general approach of it.
Sun in Aquarius likes to be different. Wherever Aquarius falls in your chart will tell you the part of your life which is different. I have my Midheaven in Aquarius so I am truly an independent in the career area since it trines my Ascendant (rising sign at birth) and may look at life in manner unlike you do. That is why I have studied astrology since I was just out of college. My mom was the one who introduced me. Yes, she was a truthseeker at heart. And believe me I do not look any different than most except there is something in my aura that others find mysterious.
North Node is conjunct (3 degrees apart) the Full Moon in Leo. With the North Node it is taking you to a more soulful openhearted direction. Did you feel love as a child from your Mother? This comes to you since Ceres (Earth Mother) is conjunct Full Moon in Leo. The basic truth – it is time to grieve if you felt little love in those early years and allow yourself to heal. This will bring you more into the present moment if you let it go. Family life versus work life will also be in the mix along with single parents and working women. Do you have an ideal love in mind then it is time to release with the help of Venus, South Node and Sun in Aquarius opposing the Full Moon. In fact it says get out of your head already and open your heart. Stop looking for the perfect time, the perfect connection. If you are jealous…stop. Find out why. If you feel dislike yourself…dig deep. Now is the time to find that self-love without the ego.
There may be some turning points coming up. Anything that happens before an eclipse usually does not pan out. Those which occur about a week after become more important. Please try to make no major decisions leading up to the eclipse. If you have, then nothing may come of them or else significant changes are needed. On the day of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse…fated things can come to pass. Observe!! Do you know that this Lunar Eclipse is going to influence some of you to let go of things that no longer matter in your life? Some of you may get a bonus and take a big leap due to your paying attention and seeing that the new opportunity which may have creeped into your life. But many still are into having to let go. No, you want to hold on. Stop. Let it go or it will go by itself and that may be not the way you want it to do so. So just go with it. If it no longer serves your purpose, why are you holding on? And the past…for goodness sakes…is done. Do you need to live there? It takes you nowhere but in circles. Did you realize that? Six months ago in August 2017 there was a Solar Eclipse and now you need to look where you were then and what is in need of change now. Do you allow the turning point to occur? It is coming whether you like it or not. Most prefer the stagnation of your daily same old stuff. What did you plant back then-anything or nothing? Soon you will see the results of that time frame.
The Full Moon affects intensely those of you who have any personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius at 6-14 degrees.
Thank you for reading. Please share if you will. Make no major decisions the day of the Full Moon. Stay in the present moment and feel love within and stay out of drama. Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on February 15, 2018. Blessings to all. Until again. Love, Jan
NEW MOON in Capricorn, January 16/17, 2018- Love will help you climb the mountain even if unexpected shows up
Happy New Year dear ones! It has been an interesting start to 2018. It amazes me at times how the energy unfolds so easily and then bam…it goes chaotic. Someone said to me this morning that it sounded like chaos when I described my last couple of days. Since I just really have begun to think about what the first New Moon of 2018 means in terms of influences…well, guess what? It could be chaotic. Leave it to me to pull the energy in sooner. What this says is that I was trying to control the flow (who me, the one who is the master of going with the flow) and obviously it was having none of it. Have to laugh at that one. It shifted back to a flow once I gave up trying to control it. Of course it did. Uranus in Aries is squaring the New Moon in Capricorn and that says it all. Will get to this later!
New Moon says to plant new seeds and move step by step forward. It is a time to put your intentions out there but do consider inviting your intuitive nature in also because if you go in a new direction based on old beliefs this will come back and haunt you and may take you down the wrong path. You can listen to others but your own hunches, your own balance between mind and heart can be your saving grace instead of those who think they know what it is you need to do. Stay in your power and listen to what your feelings are telling you also. The New Moon in Capricorn says your intentions are out in the world, business-based and incorporating 5-year plans. Your goals are important with this New Moon and if they do not come about immediately, just keep going.
On some level I am just really worn out from all the drama and negativity that envelops the world at this time. So, is there anything important that needs to be shared before I move into the influences of the New Moon? Do you believe in the Globalist agenda? I will watch it happen if you out there do nothing except stare at your phones. The 83rd Holistic Physician was found dead recently. So what do you think is going on here? Do you truly know what is going on in this life play? Or do you just believe it and think it is right? What is the truth about anything? Are you being your truth?Will you? The Network which is carrying the Super Bowl is all hot on making sure you see if anyone does a protest when the National Anthem is playing. I would say the Network is a bunch of jerks and adding this as I revise this post, the Network never showed the National Anthem in either game so far in the playoffs. One more thing- Facebook is now working on a gadget that will be able to read your mind. Privacy, huh? Onward to the New Moon!
The New Moon in Capricorn arrives on January 16, 2018 at 9:17pm EST, 6:17pm PST and on January 17, 2018 at 2:17am GMT in 26degrees 54’. The Sun in Capricorn is in the exact degree. Capricorn is the third Earth sign along with Taurus and Virgo. It is also a Cardinal sign. It begins the winter season. The three other Cardinal signs begin each other season. What does this Capricorn new moon bring to you? It says that fear may be present since Capricorn does rule it. I have asked many times through the years- what is your fear and why is it holding you back? Many of you choose to sit with the old beliefs as I have stated earlier and live that life. At this New Moon which precedes the Lunar Eclipse Blue Moon at the end of the month it is time to take the reins and move up that mountain. It is time to decide what direction you choose to take and write down that intention within the first 24 hours after the New Moon arrives. It is best to write a short list not too long after the New Moon is in effect. Since Capricorn is ruled by the taskmaster Saturn that says to you…go for it…even if it is something that takes time to do. Saturn just entered Capricorn December 19, 2017. How has that been working for you? At the moment the New Moon is saying to you move forward slow and steady and you will be amazed at the outcome. Remember you are climbing the mountain like the goat. Since there are eclipses down the road following this New Moon it is time to finish some old projects that may be hanging on as you enter the New Year. Will you have the impetus to finish them so you can now move on?
As this New Moon commences it has Uranus in Aries squaring (conflict) it. What this is saying is that there can be unexpected or disruptive influences showing up since Uranus is the revolutionary at heart. As I said in the beginning of the post I did encounter this chaos a few days ago since my moon in Capricorn and progressed (where it is found in a chart for the date it is right now) Sun was affected then. What does that say? It is telling you to just be aware of the energy and stay in the moment instead of reacting. Oh, I know, some of you will be pulled into it. Just know that the New Moon is conjunct (2 degrees apart) Venus in Capricorn which is at 28 degrees. Are you loving and accepting yourself at this time? If not, how will you open to love from another? What are your deepest feelings? Are you in your truth? Are you being authentic? That is what shows up now. Look within and see how you feel and let go of old patterns that have plagued you since your childhood. Are you ready to do this so you can feel unconditional love? New Moon is also sextiling (positive) Mars in Scorpio which can bring a more sexy tone to the results of the possible disruptive Uranus . It also gives you an opportunity to move through any obstacles that may arise. Love does rule in the end. Keep that in mind no matter what you encounter. As this energy prevails I continue to suggest you stay in the moment and begin to bring awareness to the forefront. This says to you to get out of your head already and just be. I know many of you will frown when you read this due to the earlier conditioning that has occurred. On another note- what does it take for you to uncover your inner truth, examine it and follow it?
Jupiter in Scorpio is sextile (positive) Pluto in Capricorn as the New Moon comes in and will be a signature aspect as the year goes on. It is a transformative influence in your life and wherever it falls in your chart will tell you what part of your life will be transformed if you allow it. As it begins it is about a possible new direction or letting go of any sense of duty to others. Guess what- as I have said in the past living your truth is important and that is what Jupiter/Pluto influence is definitely saying to you. Wealth and abundance also play into it in a major way. Where are you going to allow your authentic self to take you? Are you ready to open to it?
Those most intensely affected are those who are under the following signs: Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra with Sun, Moon, and Ascendant at 21 degrees – 29 degrees of those signs. If you have any personal planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) in those degrees there may be some influence. Birthdays – January 12-19/20, April 12-20/21, July 14-22 and October 15-23.
Thank you for reading and sharing. I am most grateful for your kind support. Keep your heart open to unconditional love and let the fear be gone already. Some things are shifting dramatically and speeding up yet at the same time the energy is giving you an opportunity to take it slowly one step up the mountain at a time. Paradoxical at best! Comments are always welcome. Many blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
As the New Year begins I ask you, dear ones, – do you know your truth? How about truth of your life and truth of the world? What do you believe as the world supposedly turns or does not? As I take a look at the year that has passed I sit here in disbelief regarding the attitude of so many of you. Now, before you take offense (because someone always does) I ask you to truly look at you and how you go through life. Is this the you that you wish to take forward in the year of 2018? What do you choose to shift to a better place within and without? Many of you still cling to the past due to a variety of reasons whether it is about relationships, jobs, old beliefs, fears or fill in the blank. How do you expect to move ahead in any area of your life if you continue to fear, to hold on, to let your ego control your decisions? You tell me because I am curious and would love to hear what you say. Most of you will not comment. That is ok. It is your choice.
To digress for a moment…As I wrote one word in a comment on something that was posted on “FB” I noticed that when I went on another website there was an ad for that word I used. What a bunch of losers!!! And the word had nothing to do with their ad. Life becomes more controlled and ridiculous on every breath. So back to you— Are you an individual or are you someone that just goes along with the crowd? I see it in the news. I see it on the Net. I see in the grocery store. The very fact that you are influenced totally and unless you wake up there is no tomorrow for you because you will become the food of the parasites who rule this planet. You need to find your Spirit. As the Full Moon comes in there are so many things which are out of balance and keeping you from being your truth. But there is hope since Saturn just went into Capricorn and it will definitely put on the taskmaster shoes and get that focus centered where it falls in your natal chart. This influence will last for about 2.5 years so it will get you on track in some way. This is a time of deciding what goal you have in mind. What do you truly wish to do in these next couple of years? Nothing is too big for the Saturn-ruled Capricorn and with Saturn present here it gives you the opportunity to make that move forward slowly and deliberately. This is no place to be for the faint of heart. The mountain goat climbs and climbs until it reaches its destination no matter how long it takes. But it can also bring all those fears to the table. Oh no. Now what will you do? Stop listening to the crap on the news. That is fear-mongering to the ultimate!!! Do you recognize what is going on? What is happening in the world is so far off-track that it is unreal for goodness sakes. If you do not like that statement then stop reading now.
The Full Moon is in Cancer arrives January 1, 2018 at 9:24pm EST; 6:24pm PST and on January 2, 2018 at 2:34am GMT at 11degrees 37’. The Sun is in Capricorn at the same degree. When the Sun is opposite the Moon there is a polarity somewhere in your life. An example is work versus home or being creative versus logical thinking. Lots of emphasis on your relationships and family usually occur at the Full Moon. Usually whatever you began anew at the previous New Moon which was on December 17/18, 2017 will come to fruition or maybe you will need to just fine tune it. The Full Moon energy lasts until the next New Moon on January 16/17. It is a supportive type Supermoon. This is the only one of the year.
The Full Moon in Cancer is trine (in good aspect) to Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio which helps you to tune into your inner wisdom, your intuition and the depths of your soulfulness. Along with the Sun there is Venus, Pluto and Saturn which are also opposing the Full Moon in Cancer which says that you may question your intuitiveness and what it is telling you because you would rather stick with the plan. Then again you may retreat to the crab shell of the Cancer moon because you are afraid to take the leap that is right in front of you. One suggestion – Do not sacrifice your feelings and needs because you have your goals out there. And please keep your heart in it and come through with peace and gentleness or you could be pulled into the shadow of Capricorn which is more serious and just doing it yourself.
I know some of you are looking for jobs and new directions/opportunities. Well, I feel that just by keeping your focus and putting it out there you will find it comes to you. Since Full Moons are about getting rid of old junk, patterns and all the rest of it, watch that others do not shove something at you and try to make you listen to them. Stay in your power even when the negative thinking pops out at this time.
Mars in Scorpio squares (90 degrees challenging) the North Node/South Node at 15 degrees Leo/Aquarius on January 2. This is also squaring the Lunar Eclipse upcoming and the previous one in August. It is a time for you to really find the work energy outstanding yet there may be no cooperation with those who are in the same venue with you. Mars is conjunct Jupiter at 18 degrees on January 6. Keep this in mind if you are ready to start something new. It is a perfect time to do so. This is a perfect time for social activities and relationships due to the fact that Venus in Capricorn is opposing the full moon and sextiling (favorable) Jupiter in Scorpio. It is also good for agreements.
Uranus in Aries goes stationary direct on January 2 after being in retrograde motion for the last five months. What this says to you is that there can be this surprising development that shows up in your life and motivates you. You may have been going through all kinds of major transformation and now you will recognize there can be a move in a new direction since Pallas Athene is conjunct (within 2degrees) Uranus. Take advantage of the insights that sing to you and you will find your life becoming quite interesting and you are ready for action. Be the individual that you were born to be. Too many of you are fearful of taking a step out of the comfort zone and if you do, it is always about money and the physical world which is wonderful but without Spirit. Your heartsong is important and it will help you take a leap at this time. Do what is your passion…do what inspires you. Stop letting others sabotage your dreams. Uranus in Aries is also square (difficult aspect/6 degree orb) Pluto in Capricorn and this takes you through the fiery shift that has been in effect for about 5 years and continues to forcefully prod you to get out of the stagnation and transform yourself and your life. Choose it or not, it is happening.
Sending out many blessings for a beautiful New Year of 2018 filled with magnificence. May you find joy and peace, love and good health and an overflow of cash that brings financial freedom. Thank you for reading the post through the year. I am hoping I can expand it into a space of more insights on other topics also. Thank you again for the old you and the new you to come this year. Until again. Love, Jan
“Trust yourself and you will know how to live” ~ Goethe Where or where has the holiday cheer gone, there seems to be a block so deep, as I look around my realm, I notice how most continue to sleep. Running here and running there without any joy or peace wake up to the reality of what goes on or do you choose to go on as sheep? Do you find that social media is more important than enjoying the season? I know life has changed considerably in the past decade but in my observation nothing has changed. How many of you can stay off your phone for more than 30 minutes? Ok, that is a long time…how about 15 minutes? I am appalled that young children would rather play on the phone with a game than spend any time interacting with other children. Soon, there will be nothing but human robots and then maybe no humans, just robots. And you buy into this? It is time to wake up.
Other things-US Army representatives are saying that some airspace over Syria belongs to the US. How can that be when Syria is a UN member and sovereign state and no individual space allotted? In the last year there is so much advertising on TV regarding drugs it makes my head spin. Most every channel has it and since I do not watch TV before later evening I am sure it is even worse during the day. Pharmaceutical companies spent $3.2 billion on ads for TV in one year. Are you serious? I saw that Robert Kennedy Jr. wanted to talk about his film Trace Amounts on a show and he called Fox News and he was told no by someone he knew. It is about mercury in vaccines and the networks get too much money from the Pharm companies. Nothing new as to who controls much of the world. Jim Stone said the election in Alabama was a complete farce since there is no proof of vote count. Oh, as long as it is going the way of the anti-whoever people it is good for them. Remember the gulag can come to America.
What is a New Moon? It is a burst of new energy which lasts until the next new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from December 18 to the January 1 2018 Full Moon in Capricorn.
New Moon in Sagittarius arrives in 26 degrees 31’ at 1:30am EST and 6:30am GMT on December 18, 2107; 10:30pm PST on December 17, 2017. The Sun is in the exact degree as the Moon. This is a time of finding your way through a twisting road where you cannot see that well. And on top of that it is a time of also letting your past behind which I have spoken about for several years. I still find many stuck there. This New Moon in Sagittarius is asking you to figure out what is still holding you back and walk through that darkness already. Let the beam of light on your helmet help you forge ahead to a new year and a new start. Are you willing to do this? This New Moon is conjunct (0 degrees) the Galactic Center vortex (hole) in the center of the universe. There is a plethora of golden influences at the Center but to get there you will need to protect yourself with Light surrounding you. If you allow the golden influences of the Divine or Creator or whatever you choose to name it, then the Galactic Center can bring you messages and deeper insights if you open to it. If you have a planet near this point in your chart then you may find yourself knowing things and not knowing how you do know them. Sound familiar? This New Moon has a bit lighter energy than the previous serious beyond it all Scorpio one, Go out and find some play time and enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate. Bring on the joy and love. Be optimistic and spontaneous.
The New Moon in Sagittarius is also conjunct (5 degrees) Venus which is at 21degrees 14’. It is time for adventure, travel and being out there doing things you love to do. Venus in Sagittarius is now out of the rut of Scorpio where secretiveness rules and you really may not have gotten a straight answer from anyone, including your partner. Upbeat Venus now in Sagittarius brings you much more freedom to do things that are more exciting. Wild and crazy may be your mantra. Trekking through the mountains in the snow or booking a cruise may be just what you choose to do. Or even tapping into the spiritual mode is one of the influences. Sensual pleasures and desires are important at this time and may give you more insights into your spiritual goals since Sagittarius does rule spirituality and your visions. It also rules foreigners.
The Sagittarian New Moon also sits with Saturn in Sagittarius in 29 degrees and this makes the Sun, Moon, Saturn and Venus part of a stellium So since they are in Sagittarius then the focus is truly on those things that Sagittarius rules which I stated previously. Saturn in the last degree indicates a powerful time to finish up anything that has been sitting around waiting for closure or completion. This is one more chance to follow-through. It is trine (120 degrees) Uranus in Aries at 24 degrees. Take time to be more flexible in your actions. It may be a good time to make a commitment in a relationship. Or if just starting a relationship could end up as a long-term serious connection. It is a perfect combination of both steady and exciting energy. Chiron in Pisces is square (120 degrees) the New Moon and Saturn and Venus. What do you need to change to bring healing to yourself at this time? It is important that you look within to discover this. Are there past events that still bug you? What is hanging on that is keeping you stuck in the past? I know you are tired of me saying this, Now is the perfect time to just find that issue and clear it out so you can heal. You do not need it in the New Year. Watch that your emotions do not get out of control. No matter what goes on, it is time to open your heart to more love and acceptance as the intensity swirls around you. Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19, 2107. I will delve into this in the next post.
The period when Mercury in Sagittarius is retrograde is truly less than usual this time – only 19 days. Usually it can be up to 25 days. It goes stationary direct (moves forward again) on December 22. YIPPEE!!! I don’t how you are doing with the Mercury retrograde energy these past weeks but I have had enough. Move on Trickster!
May I suggest that Frankincense is the ideal oil to use with this New Moon. It is good for balance and it helps you go within and see your truth and how you relate. This is also good for supporting the immune system. A couple other oils that are worth using at this time are: geranium and sandalwood.
Thank you dear ones for reading my post and sharing it. Celebrate this season of Light with joy and peace. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and a Happy Holiday season to everyone else! Stay in the moment and see how beautiful life can be. Look for post on Full Moon at end of year! Many blessings! Until again. Love, Jan
