Monthly Archives: August 2013
Here we are just past the midway between the Eclipses. The next one comes to us in early November 2013. Where are you heading on your path? Or have you fallen away from that part which is really you? The energy has lulled a bit and it will pick up in a more forceful way shortly. You are still feeling the creative energy and childlike enthusiasm. Some of you are continuing to be mired in the deep mud. Sounds like you aren’t opening to the flow of the Divine within you. Others are trying to separate instead of joining efforts. This past week I had the opportunity to be on BlogSpot radio online. Jean Salch was kind to invite me to share the show with her. She shared a great meditation for opening the Pineal Gland. I updated the astrological trends and then we spoke of how to clear the Pineal and activate it. Thank you again Jean for your support.
Life goes on and the Full Moon is upon us. It is in fact a Blue Moon which means it is the second Full Moon in the astrological sign of Leo. The last Full Moon was on July 22, 2013 in Leo. The FULL MOON takes place on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 9:45 EDT in 29 degrees of Aquarius. The Sun is also in Leo at 29 degrees. 29 degrees is a fated one. Karmic things are ending so that you can bring energy to a new place on the Full Moon.. it is a time to let go and move into a new direction. These are things that have been building for months. It is the closing of the old door and bringing about a new perspective or letting go of the old and starting over. You cannot go back to what it was. It is now refreshing the page that has been stuck for a long time. I know some of you are feeling uncomfortable with the energy that has been creeping in and just won’t go away. New realizations and new directions take time to come to fruition so if it is making you a bit crazed just move through it. I know it can be painful all these changes…there is that resistance again. C’mon you can do it.
Leo is about self and Aquarius is about others. What do you have to give and share with others? This is a prime time to take your creativity to the limits. The Leonine part of you is craving for this. What within you do you choose to share and bring to other’s (Aquarius) attention? How about some compassion and love to go along with it?
Is something holding you back? Uranus in Aries is saying you can break those chains. With Jupiter squaring (90degrees) Uranus for the first time you feel a need to break loose and take that leap. Oh, it is coming! To whatever you are choosing to bind yourself is what Uranus is trying to free you from. Uranus dislikes limitations and you have put many self-limiting ideas into play. This is time for letting go of the resistance and removing from your life what is no longer working, including those worn out ideas. Since the Moon is in Aquarius it can be rebellious. Is that what you are feeling at the moment? Or are you bolting in fear from the lightning strikes that are coming at a faster pace lately?
Leo’s fire is helping to transform your consciousness now. As your consciousness is changing there is a balance needed in your life. Do you feel it? If not, I suggest you bring it back into play because without it nothing happens. Notice when you are in balance how everything flows. Now is the time to take back your own power. You heard me. Take it back because I know many of you have given it away to others. That is not what I am saying to share with others. Allowing those around you to do that is over. You are now sitting in your power and using it to transform your life the way it was meant to be-the Leo way. Take your power back! Everything at this moment with the Moon in Aquarius is about helping humanity by using your own inspiration and creative work.
There is an aspect occurring which may open up something with a partner. Some of you feel one moment you are loving and the next you are hating that partner. This goes back to prior lifetimes which may be karmic in nature. Do you choose to walk through this no matter what or do you wish to jump ship and float away to a new horizon? If you cannot perceive a happy future then is it time to remove yourself? Some of you may just decide you have no interest anymore and give up fully. You have been reliving karmic patterns which are finally going to go away. The grand trine that still hangs on during this Full Moon is helping this. Won’t it be wonderful to relate without that constant struggle you both choose to recreate? Give it up and watch miracles appear. Seriously!
Sudden changes do appear in some of your lives depending where the Full Moon is in your chart. Endings bring transcendence to your lives for those affected. The karmic cycle is over for whatever has been occurring. There is a turning point which comes from the Nessus asteroid (abuse of power) sitting right on the Full Moon. Endings come with some kind of transformative effect.
Just a reminder- the Sun goes into Virgo shortly after the Full Moon. Virgo is about service to others. So it will a time of going out there and giving that service to others in whatever way is best for the whole.
Let the Light shine brilliantly through you. Love is important within and without. Express it in unique ways. Allow that Light to transcend your life so that love is fully present. Love is not about material possessions or money in the bank. Love is. If there is fear there is no love because it is covered over completely with the darkness. This FULL MOON is about sharing ideas but without love being the backer of those ideas…do you really think they will work the magic that will be needed? Keep that in mind dear ones when you choose to close the door or walk a new path. The love in your heart matters. Be One with it. It is the heart that matters and the heartfelt ways you choose to share. Let the free nature of Aquarius Full Moon bring out the deepest creative efforts to help humanity. Got it?
Be brave dear ones. Up the confidence within and you will find the next leap invigorating and so inspiring. May you be blessed as you walk your path the next weeks. Until again, Love, Jan.
Here we go again. Are you so programmed and conditioned that you would rather hear about the threats regarding al Qaeda which are supposedly going to take place in August? Now please understand that this credible threat may be a fear factor to ensure that your joyful month is ruined if you get pulled into it. It makes no sense since according to the “top WH sources” al Qaeda no longer has the capability to do what is being said about it. And then there is the A-Rod circus and impending suspension. Are you being entertained enough? The darkness abounds among us and keeps trying its darndest to regulate, control, restrict and hogtie your ability to see who you really are and how to manifest the best life you can imagine. Did you know that it was Friendship Day on this past Sunday? You can choose the darkness or the joys of life.
How many people around you are confused and out-of-control in their thinking or behavior? Gee whiz, some friendship day it was. And what does this have to do with the NEW MOON in LEO? Well, it certainly shows me some of the more negative traits pertaining to that sign. EGO…EGO…EGO and more EGO. Take a look at your friends and ask yourself how many are true friends. Are they there for you totally, fully, completely? Friends are hard to come by these days. Many in this world have become self-absorbed and see little beyond their own circle of family and associates. So, does your friendship matter? That’s only the tip of the iceberg. A true friend loves you for you not for what you own, think, feel or otherwise. They are there for you no matter what goes on. Be blessed if you have one, maybe two in your lifetime. How would it be without that individual or two in your life? I celebrate you and your true friends.
The NEW MOON in LEO occurs Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 5:51pm EDT in 14 degrees 25’. This NEW MOON truly gives you the ability to take a risk and open to an opportunity that may present itself right in the hour that the New Moon takes place. From 5:21pm EDT to 6:21pm EDT is a prime time. So keep your eyes open and if there is something you truly wish upon a star to happen, then go for it, intend it and watch what happens. The timeframe is very short so do pay attention. The NEW MOON in LEO is about childlike play, creative activities and lots of applause. Find your enthusiasm and make it infectious for others to join in whatever you are doing. This dynamic energy will light up your chart in whichever house it occurs. Begin your dream right now at this time. Reach out and connect to whom you need to speak. Allow the love to flow from your heart to that special someone. Do it now at this time. See the difference you make in someone’s life. If you need to change something, now is the time to do so. How will you incorporate the energy from this NEW MOON in LEO? Will you choose to be having fun, being generous, magnanimous, confident, warm and caring or will you let your ego run the show? This is a perfect time to intend and do it right then and see how you can change your life for the better. August 8 into August 9 is a very beneficial time for creating something new.
When the Full Moon takes place in 2 weeks it may be shortly after that you see the results of your intentions. Open your eyes to see what it is showing you. A bit of a bummer though- Chiron inconjuncts (150 deg.) the SUN/MOON in Leo. The Sun may not seem to shine as brightly at this time since Chiron is asking you to adjust something. The rays may be a bit dimmer but things are still moving on. Perhaps you will see the need to adjust something in order to create more flow. No hesitation please. Just make that adjustment and walk through it.
NEW MOON in LEO is perfect for enhancing romantic relationships. Stop hiding behind the door and reach out to your lover, partner. It is such a special time so remember to use this energy wisely. If you are expanding a creative enterprise please know that it can bring you many accolades if you rev it up now. Or if you are just beginning a new creative project, let the magic flow and you will notice that many are interested in your workings. You can shine in whatever you do with this New Moon. Go for it. Be a Leo for the next 24 hours and be the star you were meant to be. Remember that NEW MOON in LEO loves to dance. Tango anyone?
If you are a Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius or Taurus with planets from 12 degrees to 19 degrees of those signs, you will feel this NEW MOON in LEO more intensely and significantly. Those of you who have planets in those signs will also feel some effect. With Mercury coming into Leo on Thursday, August 8, you will find yourself able to persuade and convince others more at this time. There is a truly great trine from retrograde Uranus to the New Moon. Expecting a declaration of love, dear one, you may get it. What about a big surprise…good possibility. Enjoy your life and go out and party. This New Moon conjuncts my progressed ascendant. Is this a new look or new way to communicate or maybe just getting my message out there? I need to watch for being too sensitive. Really?
This is a time to shine your light like any Leo does. Let the love come forth fully from within your heart so others feel it. This is a time of authenticity. You are the star of your galaxy and show people your heartfelt truth. Uranus trine the New Moon as I said earlier will help to wake up some of you from your slumber. Just a reminder that Uranus still squares Pluto and that will try to drag you into a hassle if you allow it to do so. There is still much calm and flowing going on, so stop the disruption before it gets a grip on your life.
Before I sign off I would like to share a short meditation from the Lakota Sweat Lodge cards. “I release myself into the moment, into the flow of time, events, cycles and emotions and I find grace and fertile ground along the way. Leave the past behind and take only that which will nurture your future creatively.”
May your blessings be many! Have a glorious NEW MOON time. Until again. Love, Jan
