Monthly Archives: January 2014
And the cold weather continues and the sun is finally peeking through. The Olympics at Sochi get ready to begin. I won’t even mention the economy as it stands right now. That will push you right into fear. Oh, by the way, did you ever really look at what they are teaching in our schools—do your children know how to spell, write creatively? I saw someone speak about how third graders have to not argue. What? Do they even know what the Constitution is? Need I say more? The morals and ethical values are being destroyed. One more thing-Pete Seeger died. I bet most of you have no idea who he is. He brought much inspired change to the music venue. And you know what the one thing that irks me these days? Drivers stop when the traffic signal turns green. Have I missed something here?
Can you believe it? You have heard of 2 Full Moons in one month, I am sure. That is called a Blue Moon. This New Moon in Aquarius is the second new moon of the month of January 2014. Do you know that this upcoming February has no new moon? That is quite unusual. If you didn’t take advantage of the New Moon on January 1 then this is a good opportunity for you to step up and do the dance of intention again. The first new moon this month was a bit difficult at times and wasn’t a great time to set intentions as such. It came to me as an additional clearing time which led to the full moon on January 15 which called for more clearing out and releasing. Here’s your second chance to set the leap in motion and magically manifest your desire.
The NEW MOON in AQUARIUS arrives at 4:38pm EST, 1:38pm PST on January 30, 2014 at 10deg55’. It is the rebel with a cause. It is quirky, unconventional and could be on the wild side. Sounds good to me! This Aquarian New Moon can be a bit detached and sometimes a bit difficult to know. The Aquarian Sun can be a technical wizard and quite hard working. It is a visionary to some extent much of the time looking to make it a better place or raising the standard. Are you feeling idealistic? The NEW MOON in Aquarius is sextile (good) to Uranus in Aries which brings unusual or unexpected events to the forefront. If you are looking for originality in any area, this New Moon will support it. Write that unique story/byline or create a different painting then you have done in the past. Compose music with a unique twist. This New Moon sextile Uranus gives you the opening to deeply transform yourself emotionally. Watch for the bright light shining upon your subconscious that brings you more ways to express compassion.
Aquarian moon likes its freedom and may even choose to shock you in order to wake you up. Hey, that can be a good thing! If you personally have an Aquarian moon, oh boy, you sometimes know not how you feel. You look for answers all the time to the point of distraction, and then find yourself doing everything else except paying attention to the main issues. The individuals most affected by this New Moon in Aquarius are Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio 8-14 degrees. If you have personal planets in those signs you will feel it more intensely. There are many of you who ignore the New Moon energy. It opposes my Pluto, uh oh, which tells me to stop obsessing if I begin doing so. New Moon also squares my Mercury in Taurus which says to me that I want to have contact with a partner even if it is a slight argument or I could be quite restless.
Alongside of this New Moon there is a gamut of planetary aspects which may confuse you and cause some chaos. This applies mainly to the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn 8-13 degrees. Venus which has been retrograde in Capricorn goes direct January 31 and is conjunct Pluto during this New Moon time. Venus and Pluto together is very intense. Obsession, power struggles and possessiveness are the keys here. If you have a planet around this conjunction (9-13 degrees Capricorn or any other Cardinal sign) try being detached a bit like the Aquarian New Moon. And if you have an Aquarian moon the better for you to do this.
If you were less than happy with lovers or partners then either it ended or you are ready to move along together with a new plan. Are you ready for reevaluation? Then move along slowly until the end of the Venus retrograde shadow in March. Of course, remember that the following applies until after that: pull back for the next month if thinking about new financial arrangements and please no major love decisions until after March 4. Have you been annoyed by those stepping over the line? I can see why since Venus is about decorum. What happened to good manners? I hear many who have to swear all the time? Is this the new norm? A negative thought form it is and keeps the manifesting at a minimum. Venus in Capricorn is upset. Going back to the finances—anything you do during Venus retrograde may become a money pit. It can pull you right down where you drown in debt. So keep an eye on that budget really close even when Venus is in the shadow until March. This is real now. If you have had reminders of past love affairs and you are finding yourself in a similar situation, then Venus Retrograde is at play. A warning: watch your tongue in the next few days regarding a relationship you are in. You may do more damage than good if you fail to stop carping. You may think what you are doing is appropriate but according to Venus it is not. So pay attention to your words or you will pay the price down the road. Speaking of shadows are you one of those that are afraid of your own shadow? You may choose to ponder this.
Uranus/Pluto square continues and Venus is with it at the moment. Nothing new here but chaos and some resistance to control factors. Main effect is on the same signs I mentioned earlier. Also remember that Mercury turns retrograde on February 6, 2014. It is a time to regroup and look at things that you may have missed before due to stress or haste. Clear out some old clutter and wait to sign those papers. People always ask me why wait to sign. Do you want to have to do it over again because something was forgotten? And those clothes you buy during Mercury retrograde always seem to hang in the closet.
What new seed will you plant this New Moon in Aquarius? What unexpected insight comes to you as you open to creating? Give in to it and rejuvenate while you prepare to leap. My suggestion is a BUDDHA Board- Have you ever used one? It has truly taught me how to live in the moment and it is so much fun. Draw and play like a child and all the stress goes away. What a treat!!! My son gave me one. Is this that little obsession I was talking about? Just kidding!
Have a joyful Chinese New Year which happens near the time of the New Moon in Aquarius. Let the sparkle of your heart reach out to others. Be in your truth and stay in the moment. Thank you all for reading. Until again. Blessings and love, Jan
The phrase of the last few weeks has been polar vortex. When I heard that term I realized I must have missed something since global warming is what everyone says is really happening. So maybe the PTB should make up their minds and speak the truth since they know exactly what it is but continue the game. Oh well, life changes instantly, I hope the PTB realize that they are not immune to fate. Life is grand, isn’t it? Unemployment must be at 30-40% by now and benefits are not forthcoming. I notice how miserable those with power are these days, it just amazes me. Money and power obviously are still not good enough. What more could they choose to have? Well, the IMF is thinking about financial repression. More taxes may come on savings and capital accounts. A high exec from Netherlands said why not have the government just spend 1% less each year. Sure thing. And the Full Moon cometh!
Oh, Full Moon I wait for your energy to come upon us giving us the ability to transcend those things of old by going deep within and clearing them out so new beginnings can unfold. The FULL MOON in Cancer with the Sun in Capricorn takes place at 25 degrees 58’ on January 15, 2014 at 11:52pm EST, 8:52pm PST. Cancer Moon is about family, emotions and sensitivity. It is about nurturing and caretaking. Are your needs being met? Are you well taken care of at this time? When was the last time you stated your needs? You haven’t? Why not? Do you know what they actually are? They are those things that truly matter to you and support your inner core. Your inner core is your true self. When I think about my own inner core, I have a paradox to deal with when I go within. Perhaps you do too. FULL MOON in Cancer is also about creativity. This is a time you may wish to decide on your goals (Capricorn) and bring them to fruition in a creative way. Then again, who of you are less than happy or satisfied about how things are progressing in your life? Is there a fear present and you continue to self-sabotage your passion? Or are your expectations over the top? Suggestion is to take a really good look at your present course of action. Does it meet your needs? Does it make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, you need to do some more revising to create something better. And for those who wish instant action to take place, if you have some resistance within, entropy will continue and moving forward will be overshadowed.
Most likely Saturn (Capricorn) energies keep pushing you to do something. It may be a good time to pull back and take a breather. Some of you refuse to do that. Take a deep breath and relax already. There are many of you who just keep on going without that pause in the action. Your mind is constantly on, your feelings are raw and experiencing emotional meltdowns and your spirit is sagging and totally disconnected due to overwork. I don’t care how much Saturn cajoles you. Stop. Do you know why I say stop? Many of you have become robots. I see that in life around me and it is chronic. How much social media can you do in an hour? What will you do when it is no longer available? You think I am kidding. You are addicted and that is what the FULL MOON in Cancer can bring to you—addiction. Get off the bandwagon of the Matrix already. Chiron is also in aspect to both the Sun and Moon on the 15th. If you are feeling lack of energy then stop pushing. Do you feel like you are wasting time if you do absolutely nothing? That definitely can be from your past familial belief patterning. So again, it is saying address the past issues so you can take a leap.
Another part of this Full Moon is about family. Cancer Moon loves to mother others or they look to others to do the same for them. Family matters are always in the forefront with the Cancer Moon. Solitude is important to the Moon in Cancer. They love to dream and just be alone with their feelings at times to reach into their memories for answers to current issues. If there is too much negative energy in the air, Cancer Moon loves to go into a shell to just ponder and regroup. They need to do this every so often. At the time of this FULL MOON in Cancer, there may be emotional tension and stressful interactions. People can be moody and abrupt so in relationships be kind, and if hurtful words have been expressed show some compassion. Stop the victimhood. This is a particularly good time to let go of any old hurts that continue to plague you and distort your thinking and keep you emotionally trapped. Give it up dear ones. Forgive and go forward. Life is too short to hold grudges (something Cancer Moon may do). Live in the moment now as you let the past hurts flow away. Old familial beliefs are ready to be cleared. Give it a chance to surface and get rid of it. It is only holding you back from that creative passion. Venus Retrograde in Capricorn helps you go past those disagreements which simmer beneath the surface. It is time to reconnect. Remember those past friends and family members who you lost along the way. You feel like you want to reach out to them with interest again. Do it now before they move out of your realm.
If you are pushing to do something without all the ducks in the row, please be careful. The energies are getting wild and even though Venus is retrograde your plans can take off and if you aren’t ready to deal with the results, keep planning. Once you put them in motion and let them take a leap, whatever you put out there will move at extreme speeds to conclusion. Pay attention and don’t do anything unless you really choose it and are ready for it.
Those who have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) at degrees between 22 and 30 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will be most affected by the Full Moon energies. This Full Moon is the halfway point between the T-Square of Pluto/Uranus in October 2013 and the upcoming exact square in April 2014. Life is getting more interesting by the moment.
I pulled an Animal Power card , the Bison. It is about prosperity. How does it connect to the Full Moon? Well, surprisingly it does. Bison prosperity energy is about believing all you need is within you to get what you desire. It is about. Bison asks you to keep moving forward even in disappointment and frustration. If you feel unworthy and empty then Bison energy will help you walk through it. You need to love yourself and love others, no matter how they act. Bison is about the Golden Rule. Act towards others with love and you will find that in return. Miracles do happen.
Bison Spirit, I am grateful for all your gifts of abundance and endurance. Come to me now and give e grounding. I need you to help me to slow down, be patient; having faith I will be provided.” (from Animal Powers cards)
Thank you for reading and thank you for all the good things you do. Life is changing quickly. Until again. Love, Jan
The mountain goat is now upon us. And the New Year is just about here. By the time I post this, the bright New Year will descend upon you. Are you ready for a new beginning, a renewal of energy, a leap up the mountain? Maybe you will find a new perspective. Are you truly ready to reach the summit of your inner workings? Life has become a metamorphosis for some of you and others of you have slowed down. Some are in a rut yet very happy to be there. Who is feeling joy? Maybe I have felt it lately from the Joy Tonic which I found in my stocking at Christmas. Everyone can be feeling so if you allow it. Allowing is everything in all parts of your life. If you are out of balance things will go away out of your reach until the balance is present.
This New Moon in Capricorn is at 10degrees 57’ on January 1, 2014 at 6:14 AM EST, 3:14 AM PST and 11:14AM GMT. All new moons are about new starts and new intentions. What do you choose to intend so that manifestation can take place? This NEW MOON in Capricorn is pretty strong-willed yet would like you to be responsible and accountable for what you say and do. With Pluto sitting on it a few minutes away it is telling you to grow up and stop acting like teenagers. Yes…exactly. It is time to be the mountain goat and climb that mountain and look within for your purpose if you haven’t recognized it yet. So many of you just sit back and let others do it all. Pluto doesn’t like this. And with the New Moon, oh boy, watch it. This is a good thing for everyone. It is a wake-up call. If you have secrets, forget about it because the New Moon energy will find you out. It abhors secrets. This New Moon in Capricorn is about openness with others in your life. Stay in the truth dear ones and life will flow. Uranus in Aries squares the New Moon. It tells me that you will tend towards impulsiveness even if you know better than to do it.
Those with Capricorn Sun or Moon are quite ambitious, efficient and patient. On the other hand they can also be suspicious, stubborn and intolerant. Some of this energy from these traits can show up in the next few weeks as a result of the New Moon. If you are a Capricorn type or experiencing a Capricorn energy you may meet obstacles, delays and setbacks because Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and it likes to make sure you are on track before you set out on the next part of the journey. If you face them objectively then you will find they fade out quickly. This comes only when you are seeking spiritual growth and not personal growth. Just a reminder…spiritual growth comes from within not from religion.
With Pluto being right with the New Moon it is about power. Of course, you may want to take the power away from someone, or show how powerful you are. Is it really about this? No, it is about bringing the power into your realm from the spirit. Channel that energy and listen to your heart when it speaks to you. All is in tune with this New Moon and Venus is still retrograde but out of aspect. This is truly a time to speak the truth in a kind way in relationships to resolve anything that may be hindering flow and love. And speaking of truth, authenticity is needed now in a major way. Have you been living with integrity? Have you treated those in your life the way you would like to be treated? Think about it. It is a new year, a new moon and an opportunity to do just that. If you allow others to treat you with unkindness and disrespect, is that something that is making you feel good. Or are you acting with arrogance and control and all the BS that goes with it just to show how big a person you are. C’mon, change your attitude and intend good interactions with joy and truth and honesty and of course, integrity.
Pluto, Sun and Moon in Capricorn is flowing gracefully with power. Use it to your advantage. With Uranus square the New Moon in Capricorn it is time to walk away from relationships that no longer serve any purpose, jobs that are feeling negative and your own inner turmoil. If you are unable to resolve it, then let it go now. it is building up for April which will implode if you are unwilling to do this now and take small mountain goat leaps up the mountain. April is when the next exact square (conflict) of Pluto and And stop being so selfish! There are many out there who are. It becomes more obvious every day. And it will rear its ugly head shortly. Mercury conjunct the New Moon is harmonious and gives us that new perspective which I mentioned earlier.
This New Moon occurs on the first day of the year of 2014. How lucky you are to be able to address the demons within in the next couple of weeks and rid your body and mind and emotions of all the toxic elements which you have collected along the way. Continue doing this if you have already begun it way back when; and those of you who have given little thought to this, I highly suggest you get on the bandwagon. It is so important to do this now. This New Moon is about being polite and having good manners. Oh, you forgot this? How about consideration and compassion along with love to others who are important to you? If you cannot show love then walk away from those who mean little to you. Tolerance is better than criticism.
Those affected most intensely are you who are born between December 25 and January 4 and also anyone who has planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn between 6 and 15 degrees.
The Lakota Sweat Lodge card that I pulled for the New Moon is about abundance. It comes when you accept it within. Give thanks for all that is provided to you and be able to release all that has been received. If you are fearful of not having enough, that is what you will continue to create. It is about all gifts of abundance including love, companionship, teachings, nourishment and guidance not just the material. “I acknowledge with gratitude the flow of God’s abundance through my life.”
Sending you many wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR filled with joy, abundance, prosperity, LOVE and compassion, tolerance, patience and good friendships along with loving interactions. Thank you for all you do and your support. Until again. Love, Jan
