Monthly Archives: January 2016
As I sit and write this post I wonder if everyone is having a great time with the sensationalism in the news. Snow, snow wonderful snow…away you go. That’s all it is,snow. Oh, yes, in my area, most likely there will be anywhere from a 18-23”. When I was growing up snow in January was normal. It’s winter. Have you forgotten? And then there was some discussion among the British folk that Mr. Trump should be banned from their country. Not going to happen but he was called a wazzock. A college student is being detained in North Korea because he was trying to get put in prison to see exactly what was happening there. This kind of thing makes me speechless and so does Facebook. Oh, yes, those NFL playoff games are Sunday. Get out of the Matrix.
The weekend brings us the Full Moon in Leo. The full moon illuminates your feelings, your emotions. It is a time to let go; purge the past. Whatever you started on the New Moon in Capricorn may come to fruition now. But this time it may still be stuck because unless you really hopped on it quickly, Mercury retrograde kept it right where you started it so you could reassess the whole idea. How many truly took a leap in the past 2 weeks? I really wanted to do so but I kept pushing to go forward and lost interest for a moment. Next week Mercury goes direct and you will find it easier to take it to the next level. Any decisions you made based on priorities you may have had in the past may soon be outdated and you will leave them back there.
FULL MOON in LEO occurs on January 23/24, 2016 at 8:45pm EST, 5:45pm PST, and 1:45am GMT in 3 degrees 29’. (Sun is in Aquarius at same degree.) Leo Full Moon loves to shine, to be out there in the world. It is the artist, the player, the lover. It has a regal air to it. Both Leo Moon and free-spirited Aquarius Sun love to party and have a great time. This is a time to open your hearts (Leo Moon) and your minds (Aquarius Sun). This Full Moon is about thinking about how the needs of you compare to the needs of the group. Leo FULL MOON wants to express itself in some sort of creative effort. Leo is also about the child within and those children around you. It is a time for you to come to the group thought even though Leos do not like to be out of the limelight. Compromise may be needed; keep that in mind. Remember Leo FULL MOON-think outside the box.
Leo Full Moon likes to express itself in creative ways. How are you bringing it out there? If you are feeling like the victim you will not be able to share anything creative to the world. Since you are creating your own reality then make it truly magnificent creative approach. What will you offer to the world? Messages may pop up since Mercury retrograde in Capricorn is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn as the Full Moon arrives. What kind of interesting message will come? It will surely be filled with intensity. Along with this Mercury conjunct Pluto influence is the Mercury square (in conflict) to Uranus in Aries. You may choose to be a bit more honest with yourself and others and open to doing things in a new way. Watch out for any intense power struggles which may erupt in your relationships due to the tightening again of Pluto square Uranus which comes within 1 degree on February 1. Watch for verbal abuse. Stay away from those who show erratic behavior. Some bullying also may be present. Keep your anxiety to a minimum so you don’t get pulled into this conflicting energy. There may be some shocking or unexpected news. Change of plans may be indicated for some individuals.
Have you found your calling? If not maybe it is calling to you. Since it will be with the Full Moon you need to watch your words don’t have too much emotion behind them. With Mars in Scorpio along with these other influences (Pluto does rule Scorpio) can make you feel like you are living with too many limits and wish to break free.
And as you go through the next month (January 20-February 20) the 5 planet alignment will be showing up in the early morning sky-Mercury (closest to the Sun), Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter. So this says that as you express the truth it is filled with compassion and love along with responsibility and integrity as you find a better way to shift the things in your life. The only aspect to the Full Moon is not one of the main ones but it is important. Full Moon is quincunx (150 degrees apart) to the Venus in Sagittarius. It says that everyone wants to be happy towards each other. This is about fairness and perfection. And if you get into any disagreements, it won’t be pretty. So don’t. There is also an ongoing influence of family loyalty from earlier in January which continues.
The FULL MOON in LEO energy is more intense for those with birthdays between April 21-April 28 /Taurus 0-7 degrees; July 21-July 28/Leo 0-7 degrees; October 21-October 28/Scorpio 0-7 degrees; and January 21-January 28/Aquarius 0-7 degrees. If you have any planets in those degrees then you too will feel the intensity.
Some tidbits about the Full Moon in LEO for following Sun signs/Rising signs:
ARIES – Get moving and take some risks. Creative confidence. Get acquainted with some new people. If looking at a money issue, look for common ground in the budget.
TAURUS- Tend to your investments. Thriving through your own self-sufficiency. Time to look at your outer world and forge some business alliances. When you are happy at home everything else falls into place.
GEMINI – Networking is great and so are short trip plans. Like-minded pals are present and talks are glowing with laughter. Break your routine and do something different.
CANCER- Joint ventures call for attention including financial, intimate and emotional. issues. It can be that sharing and give and take come into focus. Give up fear.
LEO- A turning point is on the way. Assess your needs in relation to others in your life.
You are in the limelight in some way. Social peak. Is it time to take a creative risk? VIRGO-How much fun are you having these days? Maybe you aren’t because you are under the weather and could use some spiritual healing or other holistic practices can help you back on track.
LIBRA-This is certainly an active social whirl for you with friends, family, you name it. Don’t get too carried away since it says you may need to discipline yourself.
SCORPIO-It is time to come into an emotional balance and also have a harmonious family life. You may not be seeing everything clearly. Is there a lesson here?
SAGITTARIUS-What’s the trip you are planning? Networking helps. Just know whatever you believe in can happen. Romance at a distance or new friends from afar.
CAPRICORN- This is your fiscal peak with lots of potential. On the road to a new start.
Time to let go of the past and detox. Get rid of what no longer matters. Transformative energies.
AQUARIUS-You are looking to be happy and helping others be that way also. Any problems are turning around. Time to light up your relationships. Hang out with kindred spirits who cheer you on.
PISCES- It is time to balance your work in the world with your work in the spirit. Take some time for yourself and rejuvenate. The key shows up for any issues to be solved.
Loud messages from the Muse.
How do you plan to shine with the FULL MOON in LEO?
Thank you for reading and share if you will. It is a creative time with some background intensity. Stay in the moment and allow yourself to create you as you wish. Join me on Tuesday nights at 9pm EST for Going Beyond Astrology. Would love to hear from you. Many blessings. Until again. Love, Jan
Happy New Year to you! The New Moon in Capricorn is just about here. Are you ready to shift your circumstances or do you intend to walk in the glare of the mainstream junk that continues to plague the airwaves and the Net? If you don’t know it is a charade then you missed something when you were studying history. Seriously what is it that you think is really happening in this world? It is not what it seems, dear ones…not even close. Observation is that Trump is trumping everyone or just thumping; Hilary needs to run for the hills because soon things are going to collapse around her; and the rest of the charlatans need to walk away slowly. This is a big game and if you think that anyone is going to give you a new America…think twice. This is power at its most dangerous and you and I will be paying for it if the window stays shut and you see nothing but illusion. Get real and find out the truth. Oh, by the way, watch your money because it may not be there unless you start paying attention to what the bankers are looking to do. Oh, this was a bit heavy in tone, I know, yet this is not the great nation where the good guys mattered. This is beyond anything you can ever imagine. Middle class is almost dead. Is that what you choose? Wake up.
It comes as no surprise that the New Moon in Capricorn is about your choosing to transform your life. This is beyond enlightenment. It is truly leaping to see who you truly are and is it where you choose to be on your path. New Moon in Capricorn arrives on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 8:30pm EST; 5:30pm PST; and 1:30am GMT (January 10, 2016) in 19 degrees 13’. (Sun is also at the same degree in Capricorn). The New Moon asks what responsibilities are you to fulfill in the next few weeks. Capricorn says to you that it is about stewardship and respect for the matter. So many today are totally consumed by avarice and domination, the negatives of the Capricorn New Moon. As I mentioned on my radio show, Capricorn is represented by the mountain goat which is climbing towards spiritual service no matter how many difficulties fall across the path. Two other images can represent Capricorn: crocodile and unicorn. The unicorn represents the third eye. The third eye (pineal gland/6th chakra) is located in the brain. Now what does this have to do with the Capricorn New Moon? It comes to me that it is time you allowed yourself to trust what you see. Stop putting blocks up even if something you see is not to your liking. It is time to recognize your ability to uplift your everyday thinking to the spiritual.
The Capricorn New Moon is saying your path is in front of you and you are missing it. Why? Because you are concentrating on something else totally. When you allow your mind to just be quiet for a moment then you may see that you have been going in the opposite direction than your true path in life. Seriously, how many can actually say they are doing what they love? Or is it just a job because you are totally into the money game? Guess what, do what you love and that money flows to you like a river run wild. I have found that the more in the moment one is the quicker the manifestation. And this is without working round the clock or pushing so hard you don’t know what day it is. Capricorn New Moon wants you to breathe in the goodness of life. Stop the power games and get on board for a ride up the mountain with more ease than you thought. You can certainly be the mountain goat which is a great place to begin. I say jump on the back of the unicorn and transcend the ordinary. Aren’t you tired of the drudge? Then this is a time you can start manifesting beyond your dreams. Only way is to stay in the moment and stop being a slave to the workplace. It is time to step up to the plate dear ones and stop the fear mode already. It is time to just stop looking for whatever it is and let it come to you. Believe it or not it is looking for you. Oh, yes it is!!!
Joining the New Moon in Capricorn is the Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn square. The Uranus/Pluto square has been in the mix for 4 years. It is 1 degree apart and Pluto is right near the moon which is also square Uranus. It says to me that it is a work hard, play hard New Moon. Please watch for major power struggles during this time around the New Moon. Are there rules that you are failing to work with?
Coming together today on January 8th before the New Moon is Saturn in Sagittarius conjunct Venus. Dear Venus is about love and beauty and Saturn is about the physical plane. It is time to look at the values you hold deeply and your commitments/priorities. Some things It is asking you-are you expressing your feelings; are you taking time for you and maybe even having fun (oh, really?); are you staying in touch with your friends? Stop feeling you are not good enough in your relationship. Things can change for the better in a big way if you let them.
Mercury went retrograde on January 5, 2016. Most of my radio show this past Tuesday was all about Mercury retrograde and how it affects you and your life. (See link below). It went retro at 1 degree Aquarius and is not back in Capricorn as I write this post. It is a time to revise, regroup and reinvent. It affects us all in different ways depending where it falls in your natal chart. If you have questions, comment and ask me by giving me your birth info. I would be glad to tell you what area it will affect in your life.
And one more change in the planets is Jupiter going retrograde. It is in Virgo and went retrograde last night on January 7th. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and it asks you to deal with getting rid of clutter, doing some editing or taking care of your health and wellness. It is time for efficiency as it stays retrograde until May 9. It stays with the North Node into February and is asking you to be more focused. Wherever you have it in your chart as it travels through this may be a place you need more faith. Before Jupiter went retrograde you were probably dealing with matters of success, happiness, and your growth. Whatever was on your plate in the past months is what you need to look at a bit deeper so you can make the correct decisions.
I went to pull an Animal Totem and it came to me I needed to pull a Lakota Sweat Lodge Card for the New Moon in Capricorn. Wazi, known as Old Man showed up. “I move always with a smile… I bring you the strength of sure knowledge.” It says you are on the path to resolving an issue in your life. And lightness comes as you let go of being pulled in two directions.
Thank you for reading. Share if you will. If you have any questions, ask in the comment section and I will gladly offer a response. It is the New Year and the New Moon in Capricorn brings a transformative effect upon your life. Be well. Did you laugh today? Until again. Love, Jan
