Monthly Archives: May 2016
Have you gotten on track yet? Full Moon is almost here. Seems like there is so much confusion going on in many places and lots of craziness with those retrograde planets which are saying clear out, slow down, take another look and keep moving forward. Right! Feels like swimming underwater coming up for air every so often. And this whole economy is drastically in need of a revamping. Of course this is a time that you are given the opportunity to change your thinking about what is happening with the whole money thing which includes the personal view, the country-wide and world view. Yes, it has to change and the time is in the next few years or a major wake-up call will show up. And believe me it won’t be pretty. The Jupiter/Saturn square is exact on May 26, 2016 and that is the last quarter of the cycle that began 20 years ago. So, new monetary practices have to be implemented now in the next few years so a wake-up call can be avoided down the road. Will I place my money on it? Just make some preparations…and for the moment…how about taking a deep breath and be still before the moon is full this time?
So, it has been a time of some things unraveling and many of you are at a crossroads. The Full Moon in Sagittarius with the Sun in Gemini comes around on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 5:14pm EDT, 2:14pm PDT and 9:14pm GMT at 1 degree 13’. This Full Moon is about truth rather than what is right or wrong in your world. Truth transcends it all. Since it is a fire sign Full Moon it is quick to the point. Close to the Scorpio sign it also waits until just the right moment to jump forward into a fiery burst of energy. It is a kind of what you see is what you get type of energy. No matter how much you disbelieve what you see, guess what, it is probably real. Oh boy, you never know what can be going on. And that is truth.
Full Moon in Sagittarius wants to travel for some time finding that vision that is so important to it. Yet the Gemini Sun is saying look in this moment and see the here and now. It is this polarity of the full moon that pushes your desire to look for the facts versus following that inspiration. Which will you do? This will be a major point to consider in the next couple of weeks. And guess what – Mars retrograde in Sagittarius is sitting right on the Full Moon bursting through with pent up anger. You need to let go the emotional focus that hangs around you from the past. Mars also gives you the impetus to take a leap after thinking about the intention. Slow going but does occur. Watch impatience. Since you are moving out of the past think about what you were doing back in June of 2015 when Mars last conjoined the Sun. It may give you some ideas about what needs to be done. And do watch for emotional flashbacks or those old domestic minefields of your childhood days.
With the Sun opposing Mars it can make you very competitive to the point of taking risks that are not really needed. Don’t get pulled into someone else’s egotistical taunting. It may be best to pull back and just be in the stillness of your own environment.
The asteroid Vesta is trying to purify your mind as it conjuncts the Sun in Gemini. It is asking you to watch your words carefully now for they can either harm or heal. Take time to focus. On the other hand with it opposing the Moon in Sagittarius it can avoid your own feeling by overworking at your job or otherwise.
Mercury has been retrograde since late April and will go direct on Sunday, May 22, 2016. Communication with others will improve considerably. As mentioned before watch that unruly Mars energy which can take you into a battle of wills. It is now in a grand trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. It is time to see what really is important to you.
Now let your curiosity be a part of your thinking. Life is so short for you to let it pass you by. Yet with your focus on social media, TV, politics, mainstream anything you have no time for finding your truth because it is dictated to you. How many know what path you walk? Have you thought about it? Open your mind to the workings of the Universe so that you can see the wonders of who you are and where that leap is taking you.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius most intensely affects the degrees of Taurus 26 deg.-Gemini 4 deg; Le 26 deg – Virgo 4 deg; Scorpio 26 deg – Sagittarius 4 deg; and Aquarius 26 deg- Pisces 4 deg. Also if you have any personal planets in those degree areas they also will be affected. Birthdays most intensely affected are May 18-May 26; August 18-August 26; November 18-November 26; and February 18-February 26.
Some tidbits for the Sun signs/Rising signs:
Aries-Be persistent but patient with going forward. Intense times! It is about a big vision for your future.
Taurus – Flow with the energy that is affecting your transformation and intimacy. Time to let go and you will adapt.
Gemini – Wow! Distractions are all over the place. Keep exploring as more distractions are stirred up. Keep your focus.
Cancer – Whatever is happening in your life is giving your practice for new possibilities and chances which are going to show up. Pay attention.
Leo – You feel like you are being held back. What is important to you at this time? Please listen to your heart now. It keeps you on track.
Virgo – It is time to get back to basics. The Moon falls in your house of Roots/foundation. Find your priorities and take them to the next level.
Libra – You are somewhat easy going now. If you stop trying to control everything you may begin to enjoy more. Count your blessings.
Scorpio – In the house of self-esteem you are looking for a connection between communication and intimacy. Others are not interested and can stir the pot a bit. Put the talk off for now.
Sagittarius – May be a time to just relax and be. Stop worrying about every little thing. And what does it matter right now? Watch for minor differences. Chill!!!
Capricorn – Who supports your dreams? Only that individual will have the experience of you opening your heart. Let the conversation take you where it wants to go. You may be surprised.
Aquarius – Do you always have to lead? At present it may be good for you to support the dreams of those who are your friends. That may bring more emotional fulfillment.
Pisces – If someone needs your help be compassionate and do it. Even in helping you need to create health boundaries.
Wishing you all blessings and joy for the Full Moon energy. Stay in the moment and find your truth. Will be back on Going Beyond Astrology in the next couple of weeks. Love, Jan
And the New Moon has arrived. What goodies will it bring you? Well, at the present time the craziness of election year gets even more so. Is there a revolution coming? Or is there something else going on? Also, the Belgium population has been given iodine pills in case of a dirty bomb attack. Two nuclear plants are leaking –one in Florida and one at Indian Point in New York. And the media is worried about what bathrooms you need to use. Wake up! Everything and anything is going on right now. And slowing down is the word of the next weeks. Five planets are retrograde and if you haven’t noticed yet, I am sure somewhere in your life you will soon feel it. Mercury just went retrograde last week. And Pluto, Saturn and Mars are going backwards for a few months. Jupiter goes into forward motion on the 10th of May. Yay! This brings us a time of looking in the rear view mirror so we can move forward as you clear out and leftover patterns, thoughts, habits and junk that no longer serves your purpose.
And the New Moon in Taurus arrived today on May 6, 2016 at 3:29pm EDT, 12:29 PDT and 7:29pm GMT in 16 degrees 41’. It is a Supermoon. Sun is also in Taurus at same degree. As I spoke about on my radio show last week Taurus is about the material world and your own resources along with self-worth. It is also about the five senses. Taurus loves to use them all as in touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell. If you start listening to your body and your heart you will know what your soul truly needs to flourish in the coming days. I have followed Louise Hay for years now and if you correlate what she has said to what your body is saying to you…then your answer appears. Did you ever think that maybe that sinus issue is saying that something or someone is irritating you? Or what do you think about your back pain? Could it be someone is on your back or maybe the lower back pain is telling you that you are concerned about money? Or even that sore throat may say to you that you are failing to express yourself regarding a particular issue. If you start paying attention to your body and your heart you may change your life for the better. And this New Moon would be the perfect time to begin the journey to come from the heart and move yourself in a new direction and even do some emotional clean-up work.
Taurus is about your values. What do you value the most? Try making a list or create some kind of mandala with your choice words for what is important to you. It takes the energy that you have been using to light that Aries fire and use it in more material ways. But Taurus New Moon isn’t just about the material world. It is about your self-worth and sensuality. It is about Mother Earth and doing things that help her. It is a time to trust your hunches as you move toward a better life. This Taurus New Moon is about looking at reevaluating what really makes you happy. It forms a trine with Jupiter and the Virgo North Node and also with Pluto in Capricorn, as well as a wide sextile with Neptune in Pisces. This suggests many channels for expressing ourselves. If you haven’t been doing so, time to step up to the plate and say what’s on your mind.
Jupiter is definitely about expansion. And since it turns direct from its retrograde motion in the next few days (as mentioned above) it is a time to clear out any leftover perceptions of the world or others around you. Have you done that?
On May 9th Mercury is exactly conjunct the Sun and Moon in Taurus. More deliberate communication is going on in the days preceding and until June 12. Of course, remember also that Mercury in Taurus is retrograde until May 22. How has the Mercury retrograde madness affected you? Down the road I may share the crazy effects but now I will let it be. This is a time for tried and true thinking rather than new views since Mercury is in Taurus. The best thing with retrograde Mercury is to reorganize and reflect. If you are clear in all your communication and writings you will find this a beneficial time.
New Moon in Taurus is trine Pluto in Capricorn is about a few things. One may be an obsession with taboo topics. It can indicate a natural inclination to psychology. But some may use it to manipulate. If you are trying to market a product you may find this aspect beneficial. Pluto is trine the Sun in Taurus also. With Pluto involved you are looking to research every possible aspect of turning darkness into a creative project.
This New Moon is also so sensuous that you may just get that massage which you keep putting off. It is a great time for healing hands. If you do gardening there is no better time. It is also a good time to throw a party or do some business dealing.
Those most intensely affected are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius 13 – 21 degrees. That would indicate birthdays May 3-May 12; August 3-12; November 3-12 and February 3-12.
A few tidbits for the Sun signs/Rising signs:
Aries-Where are you heading? It is wiser to stay your course at this time. Be more efficient with your resources as to where you are spending.
Taurus-Have you decided on a new direction? Whatever the decision you make you need to stick to it totally for the successful outcome to appear.
Gemini-Watch where you are headed at this time! If you are unsure of exactly what you choose. Then please do nothing than regret later.
Cancer-New Moon in 11th house is talking about your long-term goals and saying to be quite bold in how you think right now. Take time to plan.
Leo-Right now it is better to implement some plan on your path then to just sit around wishing for it to happen. Success will come if you complete the project.
Virgo- Are you thinking about going back to school to further your education? Or you may just decide to take a trip that is more in line with education.
Libra- Are you looking to form a deep alliance with someone? It may be fortunate for
you to do so. Just don’t give everything up.
Scorpio- You can entertain the thoughts of a supportive relationship as long as you set aside those fears that keep popping up. Be vulnerable already.
Sagittarius-You want the new project to begin but only if it meets your conditions. New Moon in 6th house says to keep it simple in whatever you do.
Capricorn- You may want to change how you approach the plan but keep the goal in mind. It is to create but don’t go rushing off impulsively.
Aquarius- Do you feel emotionally safe? If so build on something that is already there.
Stay in a stable mode for the time being.
Pisces- This new moon is about the simple truth in the communication house. Be in the real word right now. Imagination comes back.
