Trumpets are sounding. The New Moon in Sagittarius partial solar eclipse at 2deg 37min. is on November 25, 2011 at 1:10am EST. Have we got a beauty for you? It is fiery and has upbeat energy which brings us to another round of new beginnings and some endings. Those who have Sagittarius as a birth sign are filled with optimism, free-spirited, love adventure/travel and are straightforward to the max. They love to be the philosopher and explore the inner workings of themselves and others.
Ok now, let’s take a look at eclipses briefly. Past behavior patterns need to be shut down because that is what the eclipse is asking you to do. Old beliefs and patterns which block your growth need to be let go here. Other energies come into play at this time. For instance there is someone I know who has the eclipse conjunct Eros in the chart. This would be about heart matters that need to be addressed and become the new persona instead of staying in the old worn out place of self. It is about renewing the passion. We have come to time which is set for adventure with the grand trine and eclipse. Are you ready to go into uncharted waters? Ol’ man Jupiter is in charge here. And he is positive and upbeat so if you are not, he will not like it. This is no time for any BS. It is time you give up the crap. Period. It will take you down if you take it with you on the journey that is beginning right now. The past is over and done with. Save yourself a lot of trouble and dump it. Oh ye of little faith who fail to see the truth. It is imperative that you just do it and walk past all the garbage that you have been collecting through eons. Dragging all that junk with you will block your way and is that what you truly desire to have happen? This is the kind of energy that if you are so inclined, watch what you wish for because it will come to you in a big way. All kidding aside, this is serious stuff and I suggest you think about that intention because it will come to you. Now remember, there may be some sluggish delays due to Mercury retrograde. Get to near the end of the post.
Let’s take a look at the New Moon in Sagittarius a bit closer. If you have any planets or asteroids in the early degrees of the signs of Sagittarius or Gemini, Virgo or Pisces, this New Moon energy will intensify energy of the planets located in those early degrees. Of course, there also may be some effect for any Scorpio late degrees. There is someone I know who has the New Moon on Valentine in their solar return chart. What a wonderful time for reaching out in love. What are you waiting for? This is a time to say the heck with those others who really have no interest in you anyway. Go for the gusto and reach deep into your heart and let whoever know it in a big way. For all the rest of you out there, this is a time when something you do may not meet with the sanction of others around you. Darn. Guess what it’s time to do it anyway. YES it is. And those changes that you are resisting are coming on quickly. For goodness sakes, leap into them. There is much planning in this New Moon period and once you find your plan designed, you may find it takes a while to get it off the ground. It is just a bit lazy on some level.
Do you want to create your destiny? The New Moon in Sagittarius is about rising above the ego mind. Now is the time to choose whether you are on the path of ego or the path of the Spirit. Once you make that decision things begin to fall into place in your lives and you will begin to achieve balance. I know everyone gets into ego at times, yet if you decide to listen to your intuition, watch how your life changes and your true path may actually appear to you. Are you ready? Uranus has some input also on this New Moon. It may bring unexpected changes and if you are prepared for them, then so much the better. I feel they may be just what is needed. Remember better to know that there may be some changes rather than to be caught off guard.
Mercury retrograde is back. Oh joy! It went into retrograde tonight (November 23) and will stay retro until December 13. Not a good thing for your holiday shopping. Electronics is the worst thing to buy before the 13th. And avoid signing those important documents/agreements. Watch any major travel during this retrograde period.
Let’s take a quick look at other things happening in this time frame. Panacea and Pluto aspect tells you to get to the root of the problem and this will help to heal you and then your life can take major leaps to improving. In my personal chart I have the New Moon on my South Node which says to me that releasing the past issues is so important. It is also trine my Saturn which keeps me be professional at work and on track. Also I have a Juno transit ready to hit my vertex in the next couple of days. I think it is about a more permanent connecting link.
I have decided to pick a Pages of Shustah card to pull together this post. It is the Gnomes card. Very interesting. Quoting from the Shustah book site it says:
“The yellow gnomes card has the value of the dynamic power of inner developing of emotional concentration. It is literally the transmutation – the deep inner change that comes with work on one’s self. The gnomes in the card have expressions of great effort and grimace, but they bring forth nuggets of gold. … take heart with this message, and forge on; even in the face of criticism and not exactly warm approval for my efforts- I will gain more than what I perceive I have lost! I will come out a winner in spite of it all…”
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (those in the US) and enjoy your coming weekend. I am thankful for those who read my blog. Stay in the moment because the efforts you are putting out there are beginning to come back to you. And remember that old junk, negative thoughtforms and being resistant are undermining your truth. This New Moon in Sagittarius is about positive thinking and behavior. Again thank you. Blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello dear ones. Have you noticed the energy unfolding leading past the Full Moon to November 11, 2011? This week brings us the FULL MOON in TAURUS at 18 degrees Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 3:16pm EST. The Full Moon is normally an intense energy yet this one has some simplicity to it. It has no major aspects affecting it except in the background there are some things going on such as deception, confusion, deflection. Mars is opposing Neptune and boy it stinks. Somewhere I remember it said to watch any poisoning. Well, how about that? You know what comes into play? This Penn State University scandal is so representative of Mars opposing Neptune and also the Full Moon energies on the negative side. First there is the confusion regarding whether Joe Paterno did something wrong, like cover-up. From what I have heard, he told his Athletic Director what was told to him by a graduate assistant regarding sexual abuse in the locker room. So, Mr. Paterno is a subject of a witch hunt because he even opened his mouth and said something. The two individuals who covered it up have been arraigned. This is classic Full Moon madness with a major Mars/Neptune aspect added to give it lots of flavor. I guess Joe Pa will end up the martyr or sacrificial lamb.(this is moon on Algol) There is so much confusion, deception and downright lying that the truth may never really be known. Of course, one can always create a deflection to make it the truth. This is totally outrageous!
Now let’s get back to the FULL MOON in TAURUS. Have you noticed how the energy is speeding up and there is no turning back now. Whatever you have felt in the last couple of weeks has brought up many old fears, anger, deep wounds and anything else that may have kept you stuck in the past. Well, sweet ones, you are going to be prodded bigtime to let it go, clear it out and if you haven’t done so already, then dear ones, the Bull is ready to come at you. And you know what that means, don’t you? Those who haven’t done the work on themselves are going to end up feeling quite “raw” as I mentioned in the last post. No more lollygagging. Oh, now no fear because you can laze a bit with a Taurus Full Moon, just not too long. Rest, relax, yes, reach out in love, enjoy your sensuality/sexuality, play a bit, walk in nature or enjoy your gardens (those who are going into summer) or indoor ones, and take a big look at your values. What do you cherish the most? How is your financial outlook for the next months? All the emotionality of this Full Moon is just strengthening you for a better life. Whatever changes occur, stop fighting them. You need to accept and go with the flow so that your creativity will surface even more loving will take place. No judgement please. FLOW. It is time for this, you know.
Taurus loves possessions and material security. Both Taurus and Scorpio are about material security, passions coming from sensual or sexual pleasures and money. Self-esteem is important to Taurus as regeneration is imperative to Sun in Scorpio. And don’t forget that beauty that Taurus needs. So this Full Moon takes into consideration all these things especially the material, and the five senses. Taurus loves anything that soothes the soul. Now I am speaking of the highest parts of this Full Moon. This is far from greed that abounds. I do see the greed in the bankers who currently are involved in European actions monetarily. And believe it or not, the asteroid Europa is involved in the mix. So, what is going to happen in Europe? The same stuff has been going on for eons of time. Or will this Full Moon and 11/11/11 change the entire European Union into something else. Truth will be revealed soon enough.
Full Moons are times of culmination, or lesser influences of endings. Pay attention and see if there is a culmination of something that has been going on for awhile. This may happen within 4 days either way of the Full Moon. Personally, I am a Taurus and this Full Moon will take place in my 12th house sitting on my Sun in Taurus. Oi vey! What is going to be illuminated with this Full Moon? What old pattern or ancient idea that no longer fulfills its purpose will be cleared or at least recognized? I think I already saw it. On the other hand I may be able to move mountains out of the way and reach my desires. This can be a major moment for me and many others. That mountain may move for the first time. Also, in my case a secret may come to light since my Sun is in the 12th with the Full Moon. Anyone with planets or asteroids or Parts at 18 degrees in Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) will be affected more intensely with the Full Moon at 18 degrees Taurus and will show you something if you look closely.
These days are shifting the energy in such a grand way and there are many out there who are oblivious to this sort of change. My mind is boggled. If you are still following the monkey mind concept, please drop it now. Think for yourself and get off the bandwagon of the glitter, glitz and reality TV. If that is all you care about in life, then you are going to be in for a quite big kick in the butt awakening. Is that too harsh? Sorry, it is as close to the truth as I can muster.
Are you having any difficulties in relationships? Find time to eradicate the power struggle at this Full Moon in Taurus. Are you using power to keep others in place? If this occurs and you let go of the power struggle, you will notice a complete shift in the relationship for the better. This is also a good time to stay with your partner, your beloved, and regenerate your feelings. Clear your mind and look at things with a fresh perspective and different approach. Since the Sun is in Scorpio, this regeneration is necessary as part of the rising up in your energies. And do allow some sensuality to be part of your relationship at this time. Joy is there for the asking.
If you need to change an agreement, including a financial type, please do so before November 23. I say do it before the 17th because Mercury goes retrograde on the 23rd of November. Jupiter and Pluto are still in trine aspect and this will help considerably.
The turning point is arriving on 11/11/11. It is time to walk away from the illusions and deceptive approach to living. Remember to look beyond the illusion. As I have said many times before, this is about rising up to the truth and love. My individual thought is that love can be transformed through truth.
Blessings to all. May your cosmic leap take you beyond your wildest dreams this time around. Until again. Thank you for supporting my blog. Love, Jan
Here we are in the week after the last day of the Mayan Calendar and what has changed or shifted in your life since last week? Anything at all? Do you know what I found that my perspective has shifted and where I kept my involvement to a minimum, I now feel differently? What am I saying? Well, I feel the veil has parted slightly, if only for a moment. The lie is huge and although it was there for seeing before and bothered me to some extent, now it is annoying and exasperates me. And you say what is she talking about? People, events, the world, the talking heads, the crazy drivers, the impatience of others, the constant barrage of war talk, the rudeness, the entitlement and how many more things are the things that really make me crazy? Me first as the motto of many continues. Lots of selfishness is reappearing. I thought that went out with the last millennium. And many may say, so what! It’s been there all the time, what does it matter now? It is the lies that really get to me. And it is interesting that my thoughts and feelings that came to me as I was driving to work today, have now disappeared due to overload from meetings all day. What a way to make one see the truth. And funny thing I broke out into a rash after the one meeting. Was my irritability from the meeting showing up? Most likely! Some people will laugh when they read that. The energy was erratic.
How many of you are living in the lie? Living the lie and truth have no connection. Living the lie is when you are in denial as to what you are here to do or you have thrown it away because it is too much trouble. How many have really wanted to do something else? You may not even know what it is but it nags you at times. That’s your truth and if you pay attention to what is nagging you (I don’t mean other people here) it appears clearly in front of you. If you have a partner, does he/she support your efforts and your intentions? I know many of you who have partners who have no clue that life is more than work or watching TV or just doing nothing that has anything to do with their path. Or maybe there are those who choose to be left alone and have little to do with anything. How many of you are still in an old belief system? In fact are the beliefs really yours or from another individual. If the Mayan Calendar ended and we are now on the way to a new beginning in consciousness then what do we have to do to awaken others to the truth. When one sits in an old select group and the fear builds because stepping outside that group is a threat to their comfort zone, then what does one do to feel good about taking that leap? I want to know the reason that you need that comfort zone. Ironically, my life has never had one. Something or someone continuously keeps me on my toes and I need to pay attention. Yet, I had to keep taking small leaps whether I liked it or not. How about you? Do you feel that your life is ready to tip over with stress due to other’s behavior or beliefs being thrown at you? Then stop it and get off the wheel already. Didn’t the Master Christ say that we should be in the world but not of the world? How many can actually say that? Because if you are not of the world you will know immediately what I am talking about. Those who are treading water and hiding away or evading issues are filled with a fear coming from some other time. As a good friend commented on a previous blog post, things are going to be raw soon. Yes, they sure are especially if you are in denial. They don’t have to be. You can stop running and take a look at your life and see if you are joyful and authentic. That is a big plus. No one said you had to do what you are doing if it is a lie.
When was the last time you went within and saw your truth? When was the last time you thought about finding out your good points and not so good points and seeing how you could integrate your mindset and heart? Have you? Many say that they do certain things for people, they serve the group, they help out when asked and that is great. Is it your truth? Or are you living a lie? Does guilt enter into the equation? If so, then the lie is present, because you are being other than your authentic self. Guilt is taught; it is far from the norm. So you have beliefs that aren’t yours, and guilt about things that happened, and grudges you hold against others. Wow. No wonder you may experience problems.
This is a time to step up and take a leap to a new place in your life. Hanging on for dear life to something that is no longer a part of your truth is a lie. If you haven’t recognized it yet then get to looking deeply within or you may find something may shake up your life and who needs that. Been there, done that. Not a good feeling and boy, does it interrupt your day.
Enough of the lie! Take a risk already. Put those intentions out there and watch them appear. And if you are clear and authentic and filled with integrity, you know they come sooner than later, sometimes instantly. I thought I was going to have a rant today and the energy changed and so be it. A quick public info note: There is FEMA emergency broadcast shutdown of communications on November 9 at 2pm EST and whatever that is about, who knows! I did hear that there is an asteroid going by the moon or thereabouts in that timeframe also. Perhaps they don’t want us to hear about what actually occurs. Just sending out an SOS. Have a blessed week. Until again. Love, Jan
