What a crazy New Moon weekend. Mercury will be going direct and the Virgo New Moon is at 5 degrees on Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 11:04 pm EDT. Hang onto your umbrellas East Coast USA because the rain and wind of Hurricane Irene are on their way as I write this. It may be a doozy. The New Moon is a time to awaken yourself and begin anew. What new start will you put into action? Where will your intentions take you in the next month? Write those intentions out soon after the New Moon and see what happens. It is still a time to find your balance and look at what has to be cleared out, cleared up or just plain thrown away. Virgo likes order and perfectionism. If your Sun or Moon is in Virgo you know what I mean about this. Virgo New Moon is about helping and serving others. It is also about healing. That clutter, get rid of it. I am a prime example of stuff that needs to be dumped. Ok, ok, it’s going. Prime time to do it is now. It is about asking yourself are you planning to organize what you intend to do? It is about bringing order to your life so you find that peace within and heal yourself.
Virgos have had it tough for the last month with Mercury retrograding and being their sign ruler. And I know many of you will say, hey, it’s not just about those Virgos. Yes, it has been a bit confusing and many things having to be done over and over again. What do you mean you forgot to get the most important item at the store? Oh, I am sorry, the paperwork is not ready, you will have to come back. Well, I didn’t want to sign anyway with Mercury retrograde, yet it was still frustrating. And speaking of frustration, Who of you truly want that change to take place; it seems like it just keeps doing nothing and you want it to shift already. How can you resolve it? It is a time to negotiate, talk it over. What do you really want to do? Where do you really intend to be?
As the New Moon energy is surrounding us you may feel more relaxed or laid back in some ways. Take the time to find that order yet it is also a time to relax and enjoy your life. Of course, some of you may take full advantage and do nothing for the next few weeks and wonder why nothing occurred in your life. With this New Moon there is a Sun, Moon, Venus trine to Pluto and Jupiter. What exactly am I saying? Well, it is a time of feeling good and feels like a great blessing. That’s why you may fall into super indulgence and blow it all away. If you continue on your path and put some energy into your intentions you may find a big payoff. For some of you, depending where it falls in your charts (ask me if you need to find out) it can bring you a lucky time, money also. Much prosperity comes with this New Moon. There are some other things happening with that trine. It is a time to stand in your own power. If there has been some difficulties going on and you have been overwhelmed or down about it, without hurling any weapons, I think you will find you can make you point and get it through to others. And if you cannot find a big way to open that blockade, then take some baby steps with confidence.
Then there has been the buildup to the New Moon yesterday which brought us the Mars/Saturn square. Maybe I should have brought the bad news first. Oh well, there is still lots of good things going on that you don’t have to be pulled into this energy. It lingers for a time into the weekend so that is why I am mentioning it. Have you been feeling like all your actions are blocked, efforts kept from going anywhere? It is the free youthful spirit going at it with the authority figure inside all of you. Are you obsessing, feeling guilty, or just rebelling? Stop fighting against the obstacles. Keep the frustration on the outside and do not let it get into your inner self. Be gentle with yourself as you go through the weekend.
Oh, no, one other minor thing that may get on some of your nerves. Venus is opposing Chiron. What can that present? Well, those of you who may have something triggered in their charts may have a healing crisis in either financial areas or relationships. Do yourself a favor and stay calm because it is going to move into a much better place. You may have some old wounds reopened. It calls for tolerance, acceptance and compromise as needed. Find new ways to solve those old problems. Walk through it and let it go once and for all. You really choose that happy and peaceful place so let it happen and the good comes from the healing. And speaking of peace and calm, I decided to pull an Animal Power card for the New Moon. And it was the Dove. Perfect.
Dove represents love. How you perceive the sound of the dove will often reflect which energies are playing out in your life. Since I picked the Dove card for this time, it is asking you to go within and release any and all emotional discord. And that just doesn’t mean today’s stuff. This is both about past and present. Funny thing, it is always about letting go. And when you reflect on the Dove’s song you will find yourself releasing the inner turmoil and tension of thoughts, words and feelings. Peace follows. Of course, if you are unaware that you need this mind, body and spirit healing then nothing happens. Pay attention dear ones and open to look within and see if that healing is needed and Dove’s song will help bring peace to your life. To really heal ourselves you need to forgive all and have understanding.
Dove Invocation for Peace (From Animal Powers)
“Dove Spirit, please come to me. Please bring love into my life. Sing compassion into my heart. You teach me kindness and peace. You show me the way to express my gifts through my innocence and through my caring for others.”
Sending you blessings for a very safe weekend filled with love and peace and much joy. Take a step in your life towards something that you truly intend to happen. Much love. Until again. Jan
Hi Everyone. What was your joy level this past week? How about your energy level? It was a week of sleeping more than I normally do because for some reason I felt the urge to do so. It was a week of doing what I felt like doing and then just being. Since I work with energy healing at times I thought to myself why didn’t I use the rev up your energy technique which I usually recommend to my clients. Believe it or not, it did not occur to me. Guess I needed to just have the time off from taking any action (later in post will give you the technique). It was such a joy to do nothing except some minor things. Do you know what I did most, go within and talked to the Divine within me. What a treat!!!! Found out that my leap was not ready to be taken yet, oh well, maybe next time. It is on its way though and I can feel the energy building.
So, now that I told you about me, what about you? How many of you took the time to just be in the moment? Did you sit and watch the sunset or did you smile at everyone who passed you by? What exactly did you do? I hope you shed the ‘monkey mind’ for a short time. And for those who don’t know what the ‘monkey mind’ is – it is following the crowd, keeping that old conditioning and those old patterns going in your life. It is running around without noticing any of the beauty of your life. It is failing to hear the birds chirping or the sounds of the earth. Getting the picture, are you? Did you feel the Divine Grace within and without? Be honest!!! Are you still bound to the world, looking for the luxuries and going for that money line? Why not step back and take a breath and see how crazy life is. Notice what is being broadcast daily. Is there fulfillment in your life? Why isn’t there? Are you so distracted by the media junk that you have no recognition of your own truth, your own happiness? Who makes you happy? I hope you honestly can say it is your own being that does so. How many think others need to make you happy? Are you kidding me? I have gotten into debates about this for years. NO ONE has the responsibility to make anyone happy. It comes from within. You did know that, didn’t you? So what are you going to do about it? The more you run after the money trail, the more incomplete your life is, the more you are giving into the ‘monkey mind’. Doing what brings you joy is the best thing you can do. Yet, very few of you can do this, due to the way the world is structured. So, how can you take a leap into something you find that truly brings you that joy and get off the worldly trap? What will bring that happiness to you?
How about making a list of things that you wish, things that you intend, and things that you need? Yes, make a list. Three things that you wish and what you wish is about things that you know you may not ever have. Next, list three things that you intend (I dropped the want…because that means lacking and you will never get them…so I say intend)/ This means you will act upon these ideas and intentions and eventually actualize them. The last three are your needs. You all need food/shelter, money, love, security etc. These are things everyone needs. Now take a look at what you wrote. If you wish for a million dollars then I doubt you will get it unless you truly need it to pay off that much debt or you have an involved project that will take that kind of money in order to bring it about. What intentions do you have? You intend to go back to school and get another degree or you intend to buy a house and start a family. You intend to travel and minister to individuals. You name it and intend it and then act upon it. Intentions have actions behind them otherwise they are just wishes. So really take a look to see if you are confusing yourself with these things and making yourself unhappy because nothing is happening. Separate the three lists out and really think about your life and bringing that joy back to yourself. Another example if you are a male and you wish to play baseball in the big leagues. Is that really your intention… probably not… just a wish and it has nothing to do with your happiness. So the next time you find yourself in an unhappy place think of looking closely at how your life is.
Before I sign off, here is that technique for bringing you some energy. Sit or lie down and take three deep breaths and on the third breath see yourself being filled with the color red. This is a great energy booster. See the color red flowing through you, your body fully immersed in it. Allow it to stay with you for as long as you need to. You will know when it has completed the effect. As you breathe in and you are fully comfortable with the energy, allow it to dissipate and let it go. You are now fully energized. Enjoy the feeling dear ones.
Have a wonderful week because Mercury retrograde is coming to a close on the 26th of August. It will still be in stationary direct for a couple of days and finally released on September 9. You may wish to bite your tongue just a bit longer until it goes direct. If anything interesting happened I would love to hear about it. Stay tuned for another New Moon posting in a few days. Thank you for supporting my blog. I am most grateful. Please tell your friends about Cosmic Leaping. Have a bright and shiny week. With love and blessings. Until again. Jan
“Look the eyes are on me and what I am doing,” says the ego (Leo)
“Let’s take it to the next level and share with others,” says the highest mind (Aquarius)
“Why are you so cold to me?” says Aquarius
“You aren’t paying attention to me,” says Leo
“I am right there with you,” says Venus.
“Oh thank you dear Venus,” says Leo
“Ok, ok, I am paying attention, I do love you,” says Aquarius
How can we work together to bring our unique creativity and take it out there to the rest of the world to help raise up their consciousness. So how are you going to do this with the Full Moon in Aquarius at 20 degrees on August 13, 2011 at 2:58 EDT?
How are your emotions running these days? Are you sad, happy, showing your love or are you in the deep frigid state? It is a time to really take that frost off already and delve into what it is you truly wish to have in your life, including LOVE. Love (Venus) is around the Sun at this time and so is (Mercury) communication on the other side. No judging others, just listen and hear what they have to say. So you may have been frosty with talking or writing. Now is the time to truly bring love to the table in a deep way. The frosty detachment is present yet it wishes for the love it keeps icing. Stop that already and come to your heart and share it with others. And do so authentically. Many relationships will be going through adjustments. Venus helps tone down the outbursts of the Mars/Pluto aspect Are you feeling at war with someone? Do you need to be so volatile and go over the edge? Those emotional games have to go out the door. Please bring the heart to any conversations even though you feel fear or stress which is quite possible with all the energy running wild and erratic. It is beginning to build. Talk dear ones and stop stifling your feelings. This is a time of revealing and coming to a new place of connection. Where is your empathy?
So do you keep holding onto someone who is not reciprocating your feelings or do you move in a entirely new direction with open heart. Your choice, because if you decide to release that individual, this is the time to do it. This is also a time of thinking about friendships and groups with whom you hang out. Full Moon in Aquarius is a perfect time to release a friendship or certain groups that may have become overwhelming making your life too hectic with no time for you in it. Release it. Anytime after the Full Moon has taken place is a time to release whatever it is you choose. It is a time of deep breathing when the going gets tougher than you wish. This is a time to release yourself from outdated beliefs and bring your creative uniqueness out for all to see. How many of you have outdated beliefs that drag you down and send you down the path to nowhere? C’mon raise your hand!
Mercury retrograde in the mix and some asteroid goddesses make for past issues or bedfellows coming up. And that isn’t what we all want right now. That past issue that keeps rearing its ugly head has got to go. That core issue which makes you crazy shows up again because it has not been resolved. DO it. Resolve it for goodness sakes. If it continues on, it will begin to disintegrate and the connection dissolves. It will be recreated if it is true love and based on all the qualities of that loving nature. Is there sincerity involved? What is that you are feeling that is making you so edgy, uncomfortable, knowing that something feels other than good? This is in friendships or love relationships. What do you wish to create? This is serious biz with the Mercury retro going on with this Full Moon. Please pay attention and watch your words over the weekend of the Full Moon especially in personal relationships. Otherwise you will be having to come back to the conversation because you reacted too strongly and said things that were unclear and confusing. Much miscommunication is possible now. And even though miscommunication may result you still need to show love and stop stuffing those feelings. Gee whiz, be authentic and life is joyful.
Ok, one more thing. Hate to tell you dear ones BUT that Mars energy is going to hit that July 1st eclipse point next week around the middle of the week. So, what shall you do? Think back on that July 1st date- what were you doing? What was going on in your life? How were you feeling? There will be some “hot” politics, some seismic activity perhaps and you name it. Since it fell in the money house, what can happen financially? More debt crisis backlash? Shall we all slide down the rabbit hole and wish it all away? That’s what Neptune would do but not you who keeps your head on straight.
So whose energy will you absorb this month, the toxic stuff from those who just like to throw things around or the energy from your most loving friends? I hope it is the loving that you absorb. Yes, the energy keeps building and you need to take a big look at what you wish to reach for during this time of the Full Moon in Aquarius. The Sun in Leo is keeping you hopefully upbeat and bringing those childlike moments to the forefront. Is that leap here? Not quite although you may be able to leap into a creative mode as I said with the New Moon in Leo. It still is hanging around and that musical composition or art piece may lead to something down the road. Follow you heart and you will get that wish. Friends are there for you and so are the hopes and dreams. Dream big, dear ones, for although the Mercury retro may snag it a bit, you still have the opportunity to open your hearts to loving. Oh, how beautiful life is with true love. May your blessings be many. Until again. Love, Jan
What a couple of weeks it has been. Hope you are just hanging out daydreaming and creating some art or music. Have you been dancing through the night? Or, oh no, have you been caught in a lie or deception? Mercury is still opposing Neptune which can create some deception in your life or those around you. Are you paying attention? Is there someone lying to you? Would you even recognize that deception if it fell right into your lap? Heck, no, your head is spinning, you say, because you have little time and too many things to do. Life has changed in the last week in a huge way. They say the Mayan 5th day is upon us and everything is shifting including your ability to see the truth. And isn’t that what you would like, the truth? As mentioned briefly before, it is a time of revealing. Do you remember the days that people had secrets and you were kept out of the loop because someone refused to reveal it to you? Our old friend Euripides stated that “Time will reveal everything. It is a babbler, and speaks even when not asked” Good times, huh? Not! Secrets destroy relationships, countries and everyday living whether in the workplace or home. That is a true method of control. What I am saying is about those individuals hiding things from you that may be beneficial to your well-being or may well be harmful to you. It’s all going to come out of the woodwork sooner than later that so much of our history may have been distorted or outright lies about the debt crisis among other tidbits. Is there something in your life that you have hidden away? No ifs, ands or buts about it. Is it holding you back? Let go, already. Just remember the past is gone. Speaking of the past, in my practice you came to me for past life regressions and it was a part of the paradigm back then. Now, you are clearing out and most of you have seen the light and if you wish to have one done, it is for different reasons than years ago. Now it is to finally get rid of that obstacle on your path or to see why you are angry or confused much of the time. It is time to begin to look at why you choose to live someone else’s life. Is it to keep the peace? Or is it just easier instead of leaping. Well?
Now is a time of your looking within and really appraising what you wish to do with your life. What is your big dream that makes your heart sing? So many of you have been so conditioned to just accept and not ask questions about anything. How about asking yourself whether you wish to truly have your consciousness evolve or do you wish to just watch TV? What is your main focus that would turn your world upside down and bring the biggest smile to your face? What do you have to offer to others who would gladly support you bringing out your creativity? Since you and I and everyone out there is interconnected, yell for help if you need it. CREATE. Clear out and plan now for the next few weeks until Mercury goes direct in the sky on the 26th of August. Wherever it is touching your chart is where you need some recreating, regrouping and getting things ready to move forward. It is a transition period in which you clean out closets or do whatever you need to do to put things in order in whatever part of your life there is a jumble. I don’t want to see a tumble or a grumble. <Grin>
Things are shifting rapidly and even if you haven’t felt the vibrations changing, it is still happening. Look for those opportunities, they are coming at you. Will you take advantage or will you stay in your fear mode? Turtle was the Animal Power card I pulled today. It is about protection and taking your time to do what needs to be done so mistakes are avoided. That goes along with the Mercury retrograde aspect. It is time to sit back, clear out and just be. How many of you can actually “just be”? “Be – don’t try to become. Within these two words, be and becoming, your whole life is contained. Being is enlightenment, becoming is ignorance.” Once you decide to take the moment and pay attention, you can find that peace within and know that your happiness comes from you not anyone else. Listen to Turtle today and breathe new life into yourself, take a good look at where you have come from and what space you wish to move into. Then you can re-emerge into life when you are ready to take that cosmic leap again. Remember to continue that joyful creating because who knows where it will take you. “Come dance and sing with action transformed and opening to the energetic motion…” Until again, much love and many blessings in Spirit, Jan
