Category Archives: CHANGE OUR THINKING
Hello Dear Ones. Summer is almost over and the leaves will be changing in the Northern Hemisphere. And those in the Southern Hemisphere will be coming into the warm time soon. How are you on this beautiful day? Of course, you may feel it is far from beautiful. Why is that? Is it the fear that others may not agree with your enjoying life or is it the fact that you are still not present and living way back when or somewhere else? Why do you continue to hold on to something that no longer is pertinent to your current state of affairs? Life is about finding your truth and doing the best you can with what you find out. And this New Moon is all about details and a look to achieve. Are you on track or will you allow your controlling self to keep you from moving forward again? Achieving does not mean work harder in my book. It says to you to find your truth and do it and if you have no idea what that is then maybe you need to take a breath and pay attention. Shifting is coming in your own core, in relationships, and finances. Leading up to this is a bit of chaos emotionally a few days before the new moon. That took place for me with just some craziness with too much activity and many interactions. Are you going to be resistant to change? If so, then that brings stress and who needs that? Your thinking is what is making your life as it is and if it is in the negative vein then you are creating a very unhappy environment. As the quote goes- change your thinking, change your life. Time to detox and get rid of clutter in body, mind, spirit and your house!
And now a quick look at the world as we see it. Looks like the G7 is putting a big bundle out there to help stop the rain forest fires in the Amazon! Did you know that Ms. Hillary will be running again in 2020 since she believes President Trump stole the election from her in 2016? Some Duke University shrink thinks that Mr. Trump is worse than Hitler and Mao. I would like to see exactly what he is referencing. And I know many of you feel the same way. What has he done to you personally? That’s the question. And do you know what I feel…those who dislike someone as much as they do must hate something about themselves that is not visible. Just saying, 5G is now being implemented at a faster pace so that the world can be destroyed even more and many bees have died when they are near the towers. Of course if you go on most of the search engines you will have to dig for this topic. It is supposedly safe. 23 tons of Chinese Fentanyl were stopped on way to America. Wow. Global financial markets are wavering.
The past few weeks have been a bit quiet in some ways for many yet there is something going on behind the scenes. The month has not been a time to force change. It is better for long-term goals in a consistent manner. Did you have a spark of creativity surface? That may indicate something has shifted already or is about to do so. What this New Moon in Virgo is bringing to you is about your ability to work, to adapt, going over details, looking at your health and diet, thinking analytically and doing everyday tasks. Some of you may even choose to give up on the perfection angle. The New Moon arrives on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 6:37am EDT; 3:37am PDT; and 10:37am GMT in 6 degrees 43’. The Sun is in the exact degree in Virgo. A stellium of planets Mercury, Asteroid Juno, Mars and Venus are all conjunct the New Moon/Sun in Virgo and trine Uranus in Taurus. Uranus always shows up in unexpected ways whether good or not yet this is a positive and so if you are looking for any answers they may show up out of nowhere. And it may not be the first answer you thought of at the time. It looks quite good to me so keep your eyes focused and your heart open to whatever shows up. Since Uranus is about uniqueness and it is in good aspect to Juno asteroid it says that empowerment is the key. In a relationship Uranus/Juno trine says individuals need lots of space.
Jupiter in Sagittarius just turned direct on August 11 after being retrograde since April 10. Connections will most likely start to pay off. If you are working toward a shared goal then now is the time to take advantage of making strides to interact on a higher level and be a bit flexible in your approach. Jupiter is still square to Neptune in Pisces so this may make it more difficult to have boundaries. There may be talk about lack of water due to commercial ventures in certain areas. Venus went into Virgo on August 21 so the focus is on taking care of you and your health. You want to take the time to rest yet also be at your optimal best when you are doing any job. Since Venus is conjunct Mars (favorable) then try to create good agreements in love and business. Look for some help regarding innovativeness from Uranus In Taurus. And Saturn in Capricorn may feel a bit uncomfortable with anything but the old fashioned one size for everyone
The Sun / rising signs affected more intensely are: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces at approximately 2-9 degrees. If you have personal planets (Mercury, Moon, Mars and Venus} at those degrees then you may be affected also. Here are some tidbits:
Aries- This is an excellent time for connections of all sorts. New work may come into the mix in the next couple of months. Lay back a bit so you stay in good health.
Taurus –Work and romantic involvements are highlighted and children too! New love may enter picture. Watch out for any critical commenting.
Gemini –Are you looking to bring more beauty to your home or getting a new one? Or is there going to be lots of entertaining in your surroundings?
Cancer – It is time to get away. Take a short drive or go take a walk in the woods and see how your energy changes. Maybe a new health regimen will help you.
Leo –Your self-esteem gets a charge. Financial talk and planning may take you in a new direction and even bring in some added revenue to the table.
Virgo- Now is the time to look for a new routine for your health and who you are. Big changes come in the next few months. Start fresh and take a trip out and about.
Libra – Helping others right now is what it is about. Go out and do some volunteer work. Some unexpected invite may show up around the New Moon.
Scorpio – New goals are in the picture so go for it in the next months. Also, new friends show up and old ones are ready to be there. Enjoy the camaraderie.
Sagittarius- Where is your career headed? Do you have a new direction in mind? How do you intend to advance? Stay in the positive. Dreams may come true.
Capricorn—Intentions about work, travel and good interactions will make this a grand time. What new skills and talents are waiting for you to take up?
Aquarius – is there money coming to you out of the blue? Is there a new intimate connection coming into your life or is the one you have getting better?
Pisces –Get out there and give it your all and plant some loving seeds. Remember to stay practical and stop sacrificing so much. Get out and socialize already.

Welcome to Cosmic Leaping dear ones. Full Moon Full Moon with your light so bright, shining through both day and night; let your communication flow or are there secrets in the mix; nothing to do but watch the online phrases nix; social media says it all, will it lead to a rise or fall? Did you reach within and see a new direction or new idea with the previous New Moon in Taurus. This will help you to move forward in your life? If not, stay open to it. Life at the moment is quite interesting in the world with so much stasi-like rhetoric. This Full Moon is quite open to talking and more talking. And then again it can go another way. By the way, I was away on a much needed getaway so this is being posted right on the Full Moon day. I had to take a breath and relax. This is something you can do also.
Life gets more interesting every day. I know there are some who are crying the blues as usual and others are so enmeshed in their own little circle that they cannot see that the world is imploding and if they do they complain and go back to what they were doing. I realize that not everyone is the same. I do not understand the moaning and groaning about things that work. If they do not, then why not transform them instead of censoring everything and making things outrageous? Do you get it? Mr. Trump is apparently going to invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807- it has been used by others in the past. He will use it to send back the illegal immigrants. Oh, I know many will be unhappy that he will do this. Perhaps you need to remove the re-education. Did you know that the Equality Act is in process? House passed it and it expands the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and one thing that is in it has a target on those of faith. So this looks like the government will tell you what you can believe. Wake up already! So think about this-since this Full Moon in Scorpio is about communication and maybe some secrets that come to light or not do you know what the real intentions are in any part of what is happening in this country and world? Assumptions are the keyword for those in power in any part of your life. Oh by the way, I was thinking about this also- do you know why you have a birth certificate? On a lighter note-the Royal baby was born 2 days after the New Moon and his name is Archie. Cute!
And the Full Moon in Scorpio arrives May 18, 2019 at 5:11pm EDT; 2:11pm PDT; and 9:11pm GMT in 27degrees 38’. The Sun is in the exact degree in Taurus. Scorpio is all about deep feelings and secretiveness. What is being hidden in your world? What has someone not told you yet? The energy is quite good when it comes to communication due to the fact the Sun is conjunct (within 3 degrees) Mercury in Taurus. If you have this aspect in your chart, communication is important to your life. I have this also. Yes, I love to reach out to others most of the time. Sometimes, I just send the imps to try to make others laugh. Ha-ha. If there are secrets that are coming up they can be healing for you. Allow your emotions to come out if something within needs a release. It will be a positive note for you. Mercury opposite the Full Moon indicates selfish thinking or lack of empathy.
With the Full Moon in Scorpio being a bit intense in certain ways it may help you find the answer to a problem or question that has eluded you in the past. Since Pluto rules Scorpio there may be something that is kept quiet so you have to be careful of letting something come to the forefront until the time is right. Pluto in Capricorn is sextile (60 degrees) the Full Moon in Scorpio and trine the Sun in Taurus. Pluto wants to reach within and bring out those emotions. Or you may be able to see within yourself or another individual to see the truth of the matter. The Full Moon is opposite Mercury in Taurus which means that there can be over-thinking and could manifest as a disagreement. The Full Moon is opposite fixed star Algol which is conjunct the Sun in Taurus. Oh boy, this is debauchery at its finest. Algol is connected to Medusa who is the passionate female. There you go. Alpha Male could be in the picture. Watch what you attract because it may be more intense than expected. Be watchful of anything within you that is not positive so that you can transform it. What you think is what you get. And please be subtle in approaching others. Patience pays. Those of you touched by this May Full Moon in Scorpio may be high strung at the moment so maybe you can find a way to use your creativity to help keep you moving forward without any oppression. Psychic energies are high so use them.
Mars just entered Cancer on May 15, 2019 and he does not like it that much. Mars is about let’s do it right now and Mr. Cancer says not happening as you like since it is more cautious. On the same day Venus entered Taurus and she is quite at home in the sign she rules. This says to you to beautify and make your home cozy and inviting. And it says how about cooking up some fabulous meal and enjoying a bit of romance. Sounds entrancing! And since Venus is sextile (in good aspect) to Mars that makes everything even better romantically. Smooth and flowing it is. And definitely having a food fest in comfortable surroundings will be the icing on the cake.
With Saturn in Capricorn in good aspect to Neptune in Pisces this is a good time to take your escapism and allow the creative energies to flow in a structured way so you can get them moving into something that is useful. On the other hand you can also use this energy for reaching within and heal what needs healing.
It may take until end of year to have things come to justice where needed due to the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn and both being retrograde until later September and early October 2019. Those of you who choose to expose the truth will be rewarded for your efforts.
Since full moons are about releasing things it is important to do so as you walk the path in your life. In the past few years I have emphasized letting go of those things that no longer belong in your life because your energy field is in process of transformation into something even stronger and more positive. Many will question why let go of the past. Never said that you had to let go of the past but it was about letting go of past things that no longer helped you to become your truth. With this Full Moon in Scorpio it is time to go within and recognize what is no longer part of you and release it so that transformation can take place. And when you decide to address the past and move beyond it you will see it in a new light and then can take a leap. And that is why I named this blog Cosmic Leaping. I experienced many things in my past which were good and others were more challenging. After asking for Divine guidance insights came to me and I started writing Cosmic Leaping. Will it continue…in my heart yes…of course much depends on words that are no longer acceptable online. The censorship is now in force. Life is getting more intense since you are not robots.
Have a transformative Full Moon in Scorpio. Thank you for reading and sharing. It has been quite a ride so far this year and I look to the time the sun shines a bit more where I reside at this time. Lots of blessings to all of you! Comments anyone? Be blessed. Until again, love, Jan
Hello dear ones. Welcome to Cosmic Leaping. February is here and will get much better as it rolls on so keep your positive energy up even though January may have been a jumble of nerves. Are you ready to make your dream a reality? The energy from the eclipses continues on. Are you being pulled into the madness of the world around you? I hope you are not letting others affect you and your choices. This is a prime time to find that uniqueness and bring it forth. “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you. (Gospel of St. Thomas)” So search for it and let it surround you with the goodness that you deserve.
When was the last time you, my dear ones, looked within to find the answers? Seriously, I am asking you this so you get out of the trap that you have created for yourself. This is about you not anyone else. It is not about the President of the United States; it is not about the weather; it is not about those who demand it their way; it is not about Big Pharm and all the pills you take; it is not about who will win the Super Bowl; it is about you. What you see around you is within you and you are projecting this out there. Oh yes, you are. So what you think is what you get. Period! Thinking logically has gone by the wayside. No one learns it in school unless it is beyond the normal curriculum. If you wish to thrive then why do you continue to stop the ability to do so? How many of you believe everything that is put right there in front of you? I am guessing about 90%. When was the last time you investigated on your own as to what is actually happening in your world? I would say not. And I think that is because you stopped thinking about anything and just accept life as it is thrown at you. You may dislike what I say…that is your choice. And on another note- remember that hatred for someone just indicates that you hate yourself. Show me how that would not be so. And much that is going on is indicated in the US astrological chart and in many of those who are involved with creating this craziness that is going on right now. What does your chart say? One day I will write and share why I got into astrology and how it has affected me and my life. Many I know just look at me with blank stares when I share the truth. Oh well, I move on.
Newsworthy items- The Kool Aid is getting stronger. Maybe I am just having racing thoughts since Mercury was exactly conjunct Sun as I began to write this post. In case you are interested President Trump reopened the government so that those who had no paycheck would be able to get paid. If you think this is a concession…think again. This polar vortex extravaganza is not what it seems. It is still the geoengineering that the MSM refuses to talk about because it would stymie what is to come. So, believe it or not…this winter weather is manufactured through those who wish to distract you. Maybe you will also believe that 5G is good to have next to you. Keep up the conditioning and let me know how you feel in a year or two after you use it constantly. Moving on to the New Moon now!
New Moon in Aquarius arrives on Monday, February 4, 2019 at 4:04pm EST; 1:04pm PST; and 9:04 GMT. It is at 15 degrees 45’ and the Sun is in the exact degree in Aquarius also. The Sun, Moon and Mercury sextiles Jupiter and it brings good luck, great news, happy times, and a sense of optimism. New Moon in Aquarius says you need to find the inner uniqueness that is present and bring it to the world. New beginnings of course are on the table provided that you cleared some junk from the past full moon. Stay in the moment and take a breath as you go through the next couple of weeks. This is a time of goodwill and kindness. If you have a dream, then now is the time to get it going and let it come true. What do you choose to do? What are you waiting for? The New Moon in Aquarius is creative in a sense. It is about getting together with a group and creating new ideas for the betterment of all those living in the world. It is forward looking and that indicates to you that it is time to initiate something that may take you beyond the norm and help others. This energy lasts until the next new moon in early March. This new moon is saying to you join together with others to build something. There are many needed to do so when you have a project that takes on many aspects of creating. What do you hope to begin anew in a project? How can you include others in the development from the ground up?
This New Moon will help you transform spiritually. Will you allow it to do so? It is between Mr. Reality Saturn in Capricorn and Mr. Transcendent Neptune in Pisces. You want something big to happen…then dream on dear ones. It is a magical time with some Jupiter in Sagittarius in the mix too which brings some silver linings to things were not apparent. The true intentions come to the fore of those around you. Will the New Moon in Aquarius show up as a new innovation or some hot-headed crazy individual? You pick it. Since Uranus rules Aquarius it is all about the unusual and off-beat tendencies.
I love the Aquarian approach to life since it is on my Midheaven (top of chart-most public point) and on cusp of my 10th house of career and public recognition. And since Uranus is on my Ascendant (rising sign) it is a trine and says I celebrate originality and change. And that is so the truth. So, now with the New Moon in my ninth house it is about being drawn to the unknown and travel. Perhaps I will have to look at things with a new perspective. Oh, goody.
Mars in Aries is exactly conjunct Eris, the discord asteroid. So, irritations, frustrations and all that kind of junk may come screaming at you. (Obviously, it has hit home right now for me. Have to just stop the annoyance.) Too many things you have put up with now may spark something within and you say stop it already or just move on. There are changes coming and/or endings may appear soon. Venus moves into Capricorn on February 3rd which is very beneficial for business dealings. Since Venus also rules love it is a good month to take responsibility for your role In a relationship. Bring some balance into the connection.
It has an intense effect upon Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. It has a positive effect for Aquarius, Pisces, and Capricorn persons, and also for Gemini and Libra persons, which are born in the second decan, as well as for those having personal planets (Moon, Venus, Mars and Mercury) or their Ascendant (Rising Sign) near the 12° – 17° degrees of the Signs mentioned. Some tidbits for the signs:
Aries – Long range goals in focus. Be a joiner and make connections close by or through travel.
Taurus-Some insights from someone younger. New professional developments may show up.
Gemini -Emphasis on travel, those at a distance and education. Your life purpose may show up.
Cancer-Investing wisely may be good at this time. Look at finances. Transform something.
Leo- You may be lucky in love. Someone vulnerable may come to you for help. Biz, partner?
Virgo-Emphasis on your service; maybe a reward comes for it. Keep on the wellness track.
Libra – Try something in the creative vein now. Lovers, children and entertainment are present.
Scorpio- Family and home are emphasized. Unity in this area comes about and new beginnings.
Sagittarius- Good communication comes to take you out of the doldrums. Good feedback.
Capricorn- Look for the rewards- they show up after you plant seeds for further money growth.
Aquarius – It’s time to release the past and plant new seeds for further growth. Stop being edgy!
Pisces- Are you looking to hide somewhere? Secret messages come that bring fruit to the table.
Thank you for reading and sharing. I am most grateful to you who take the time to read my posts. If you disagree that is perfectly fine because I write this blog to energize your thinking and hope that you do go beyond what everyone out there tells you. Do the research and find the truth for yourself. This new moon in Aquarius invites you to begin anew in a different way that does bring you joyous feelings and big dreams. Many blessings and be safe in the extreme weather that is encapsulating the world. Until again, Love, Jan
Oh my, that is my song when I see what is going on as the day goes by; shouting and storming as things go down, everything and nothing is the blatant cry. It is a crazy world as I write this post and if you can stay in a place of heart then the peace will surround you with its positive energy. Otherwise watch out…the fat lady has not yet sung and it is far from over. I am saying this since Uranus (the shocker of the planets) is going to be retrograding back into Aries (me me) on November 6, 2018 until March 6, 2019. (It stations direct in Aries on January 6, 2019 right after the Eclipse on the 5th. Ooh wee!!!) Many surprises individually and collectively and even finding out who you really are is indicated. Of course, you may not like what you find or else you may be dancing in the street when the truth comes to you.
It has been a bit stable for the last months in so many ways, yet it is now going one more round with the upstart Uranus. Have you been ranting and raving lately or have you found your inner calm and walk your path without being affected? I know finding that inner peace is difficult for many of you. Why? Because you march with the crowd since it may be easier that way. No problem with that if it gives you the impetus to work on yourself and be your truth. If not, then what keeps you in that mindset that completely shadows the real you? I am asking because it is going to get quite unsettled out there in Fantasyland as the New Moon comes in and I am showing you that you may dislike the whole scenario depending on your thinking. And thinking sometimes can whitewash the actuality of the situation. So, come to the dance with an open mind and heart and things may turn out better than you can imagine. And you are saying huh? Well, the Mid-term elections are on the day after the New Moon and since the Full Moon energy is still in effect it will magnify the differences that are showing up. And that continues as Uranus is in Aries. And one more thing- anything that is not fulfilling in your life will be shaken up so that you can make changes.
This week moving towards the New Moon does not bring good fortune to those having to make clear decisions since Mercury in Sagittarius is square (conflict) to Mars/Neptune midpoint. It is better to wait until the a couple days after the New Moon arrives to see things better. Let’s take a quick look at the world around us before I continue. If you are not paying attention then you will not see the closet communists who are screaming and yelling about how I am a racist and you are a racist and it continues on and on. I do not care who you vote for in the elections –I do care about the truth. And until the truth comes out you most likely will ride the bandwagon that has been going on for a couple of years. How do I know this? I do not know. It is staring at me so strongly that it makes me wonder why some do not see it. If you believe the individuals are immigrants as such, then look again. The deceit is rampant and the masses are entranced with the media. Good luck with that eventually. Mexico is helping yet the migrants want nothing to do with working there. It may be stalled for weeks. I suggest you begin to hide since rape is not out of the question. Barnes and Noble has books in an anti-white display. Wow. Oh and keep this in mind…62% of jobs in the US do not pay enough to support a middle class family. And if you are middle class do I hear an uproar? The family is being taken apart by those who want a one world government. Do not believe me…just know where this is heading if you do not speak up. And I am not talking about free stuff here. That’s not what America is about. Period! And if you ever look on a Google map and look for Palestine…good luck unless you happen to zoom in as far as possible. Move on unless you are a tribe member.
New Moon in Scorpio arrives on November 7, 2018 in 15 degrees 11’ at 11:02am EST; 8:02am PST; and 4:02pm GMT. The Sun is also in Scorpio at the exact degree. It is a new moon which means a new start to something you choose to do. Is the goal a reality? You can have whatever you choose by knowing you already have it It works wonders and I know this because I experienced this through my life. Scorpio is always about power, sex and money. Scorpio is suspicious at times and can be quite secretive about true motives. Usually this is due to the fact Scorpio feels vulnerable. Scorpio has emotional intensity and when it is channeled properly it can give great endurance. Scorpio Moon/Sun has great ambition yet has no interest in being in the spotlight. The New Moon is about new beginnings in intimate relationships, increasing passion in your sex life, self-mastery, empowerment, and crisis-management skills. If you are looking to fix any issues in relationships or find the ideal lover take advantage of the energy. If disappointment shows up in any part of your life, maybe take it as a hint to move on. This is truly about a more spiritual outlook since the Sun/New Moon are trine (favorable aspect) to Neptune in Pisces. Even though you are entranced by someone does not mean to give up your sense of self. As the Moon trines Neptune you find yourself wishing to nurture the world or you may find yourself jumping into a creative project-art or spiritual. The Sun in Scorpio trines Neptune and brings about a euphoric feeling. If you get lost in this you may find yourself trying to wend out of what you got yourself into after it wears off.
Since Uranus in Aries is square the True Node in Leo it may be best to let go and forget about any specific outcomes for now. The North Node goes into Cancer on November 6, 2018 The North Node is where you take in new energy, go in a new direction, It is time to learn about the sign Cancer which is about nurturing others and yourself. How you relate to the past may show up. It is all about feeling and caring about others whether family or just you. The South Node is in Capricorn. That is saying to you it will take some concentrated work to make it happen as to whatever vision you may have.Venus is back in Libra retrograding until the 17th of November when it goes direct again -moving forward. This will help keep relationships in sync since Venus is trine Mars in Aquarius. You may find yourself not as serious and talking quite a bit to your significant other. And remember that Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8. What will change for you?
Those Sun/Ascendant signs most intensely affected by the New Moon in Scorpio are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius in 11-19 degrees of each of those signs. If you have personal planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) in those degrees/signs then you may also be affected. Birthdays are: May 2- May 10; August 4-12; November 4-12; and February 1-9.
Tidbits for the signs:
Aries needs to look at the fiscal situation and plant a seed. Also look deeply at anything else that pops up. Taurus finds a relationship may go to a new level. Is there a new magnetic attraction showing up? Gemini it is time for you to revitalize and clear out. Look at total cleansing of mind/body and spirit and any clutter. Cancer the creative muse may show up and now is the time to find the romance, the pleasure and any doings with children. Create something!! Leo a new look at long-buried stuff from family may be an interest. Also lots of energy goes to emotional foundations, home and family. Virgo you can get and give support. Also maybe a change in scenery will do you some good. Libra if a relationship needs looking at now is the time. Take just a quick exam of the money scene. Scorpio who has you walking on air? Time to make a big wish and it may just show up. Dream big! Sagittarius it is time to nurture your inner self. Ask your spirit guides for help in regenerating. Capricorn your friends may help you get your goals back on track. Network and dreams happen. Aquarius fertile seed planted in your business area. Lots of hidden meanings and motivations there! Pisces any strong feelings about a big dream show up. Your perception is extremely accurate.
Thank you dear ones for reading and if you will share the post. Lots going on out there in the Universe and it says to me to just stay centered and no matter what goes on, a dream may show up. Tune into Wizards Within Wednesday nights at 9pm EST on Facebook Live and https://www.spreaker.com/show/wizards-within . (Will be back on November 14.) Have a wonderful New Moon. Until again, Love and blessings, Jan
Dear ones – Allow the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon to take you on through, releasing all that is no longer relevant from the past that is stuck to you. It is a supercharged alignment that says move on up and out, keep your wings a glowing and let go as you give a shout. The past is ready to be dismissed as you sit and watch the sky, you no longer have to stay attached and now you wonder why. Why did you hold on as tight as life marched on without looking back since now is time to release for good and take a leap on track? As you look and see the beauty now within and over there, enjoy the inner wisdom that comes to you opening to be aware.
This country is in a frenzied, chaotic place since the populace is blind to the reality and has not looked deeper into the fray. The storms abound as I write this post and the energy is nuts. Everywhere I look there are flooding roads, downpours and unusually hot weather. Is it real or is it imitating those who are flooded with fears and tears regarding that which is shown to you by FakeNews and it sticks to you like tar paper? The way I see it is that life is too short for the harangue that you foment from other’s beliefs and thoughts. Have you researched the truth? In fact have you allowed the truth within to show up as you sit in quietude? Only when you calm your mind will you see the reality of all that is going on. When was the last time you listened to your heart? Are you for separation or are you truly looking to unite? Dear ones, nothing is as it seems. Take off the blinders and see the truth which is right in front of you staring you down. “We suffer not from the events in our lives, but from our judgment about them.” -Epictetus
If you haven’t had the courage to release that which is no longer a part of you then this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse which lasts 100 minutes may surprise you into taking a leap of faith. Oh I am being real here and know that you can do it. So will you open to this energy and let go once and for all. If you do not…know that it is coming to you sooner than you think. And the feeling will be stronger than you can even imagine. And yes, the FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE in Aquarius arrives on Thursday, July 27, 2018 at 1:20pm EDT; 10:20am PDT; and 5:20pm GMT in 4 degrees 44’ .(Interesting angel number 444-angel are around and they are supporting you with unconditional love and frequency. They are saying to stay in the essence of love and tune into your intuition.) The Sun is in Leo in the exact degree opposing the Full Moon. With the Sun in Leo is the North Node.
This Full Moon in Aquarius/Lunar Eclipse is between Mars retrograde and the South Node. You may feel like you are being pulled in a backward motion especially with those who are part of your past and may no longer be a major part of your life since so many planets are also retrograde. If you have been in the stuck mode then you may feel yourself being prodded out of that position allowing some healing to come about especially in the emotional realm. If you feel that others may reject you because you speak your truth then this is the Full Moon to realize it is time to stand in your power and be the unique individual that you are. Got it? Good! And if anger shows up because something triggers you then know it is time to face it and let go of that which no longer inspires you.
On the world stage watch how the shadow masculine play out. It is not a good thing and it may bring about violence and aggression. Or it may just seem that way. Is it on the verge of war, aggression, outright acts of violence or just a mirror of the underlying energy that needs to be expunged or pulled into alignment? Can true freedom be born from the out of bounds Mars? Take the masculine energy and let the positive part motivate you instead of allowing it to bring out the repressed anger and violence.
When Uranus enters the picture by squaring the Sun, the Moon, and the nodes it could indicate some revolutionary acts. Of course there may be lots of erratic energy and displays of over-the-top chaos. Yet, it may be what will shift the past behavior of the collective bringing in some upheaval so the pattern is shaken or spun to the extreme. Is that fear I feel from you right now? Stop!!! This is a good thing. News may bring much hidden to light. Does that scare you too? Just know it is all happening for a bigger reason.
If you have not been following your passion and your heart’s desire then it will become quite obvious around the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. If you are in a situation where you are far from being able to live your dream and soul purpose then now is the time you will choose to break free. Do you feel supported by those around you? If not, then why do you continue to live in that mode? It is your life so stop looking for everyone’s approval since that is part of your inability to focus on your truth. If you have a plan to live on your true path then significant changes are part of the picture.
On another note Mr. Mercury the Trickster goes retrograde on July 26, 2018 at 1:02am EDT. Oh, boy. Here we go again. On July 26 Mercury retrograde at 23° Leo begins and on August 19 at 11° Leo ends. During those days around the Lunar Eclipse will you be nervous and filled with anxiety and even anger due to the Stationary Mercury retrograde which makes no planetary aspects. There Is a T-square between Sun in Leo, Moon in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus at the Full Moon and the day after Mercury goes retrograde. Use common sense for there are many unexpected things that may occur. Keep an open mind. Stay away from making any major decisions leading up to the Full Moon and if you do so, there may be changes that you may have to make as the period moves on. There may be communication and possible travel delays. Electronics may tend to go out of kilter. Sign no new agreements or contracts during the retrograde period. Do not throw a temper tantrum or drive when angry.
As the Full Moon comes about there is a contact with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld in Capricorn the day before on July 26. Will you allow your fears to take over completely or will you allow a transformation to take effect? Tyrannical behavior is totally unacceptable. Think before you say or do something is the best option. Those of you who prefer the dream state and not reality may find any truth that is revealed will create a feeling of total dismay. Truth is what is needed and it is coming and you may not like what is told. If it does not come out then just know that the end result will be unacceptable to most. Oh, one more thing, love thy neighbor as thyself is indicated by the empowering Venus in Virgo trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Will love be part of your life?
Those most intensely affected by the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius are Sun signs/ Ascendant signs in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius at 0-7degrees. Birthdays are: April 21-28; July 23-30; October 24-30; and January 21-28. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) around 4 degrees then you may also be affected.
It is time to reboot, regroup, and let go the stuck places. Release that which no longer inspires you. And let the agreements sit on the table til after Mercury goes direct in August. There is another major eclipse which is a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on August 11, 2108. Life continues to be intense and transforming. Will you allow that to occur in your life? It is still about loving no matter what happens around you or within you. Be blessed dear ones, and have a happy Full Moon. If you have thoughts about this time frame and wish to share, do leave and comment and I will try to respond in Cosmic Leaping comment section. Please share with others if you will. Thank you for all you do and are. Check out Wizards Within on zoom.us/j/310769693 or on Facebook or YouTube on Wednesdays at 9pm EDT. Until again, Love, Jan
Hello dear ones! Where are you as the summer rolls on or winter in the Southern Hemisphere? What feelings are within that bring good things to you? Do you feel at home wherever you are within and without? What fears show up as you wander through your day? Why does the fear keep you so entangled in everything and nothing? Are you ready to let it go?
Out there in la la land – The World Cup final is now set for Sunday July 15 with France facing the winner of the England/Croatia match. (Croatia just won) There is some good news- the Thai soccer team has been rescued from the cave. What a blessing! It certainly looks like the Mainstream is again trying to spoil the meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin which takes place on July 16. Maybe those who are so ready to rattle the swords have a fear issue which comes from their own suppressed anger. It looks to me that those who wish to control the news have no control over their own lives. If you are into ebay then you may be running for the hills as far as sales go. Looks like there may be an internet sales tax and if and when it happens- Amazon will probably make out pretty good and the Mom and Pop businesses will be bust. And lastly -Do you know what you are eating? Does it have anything which is genetically engineered within it? Soon you will not know as labeling for that is disappearing.
The Solar Eclipse (partial) New Moon in Cancer arrives Thursday, July 12, 2016 at 10:47pm EDT; 7:47pm PDT; and July 13, 2018 at 2:47am GMT in 20 degrees 41’. The Sun is in Cancer also in the exact degree. Solar eclipses are more about catalyzing changes then a regular new moon. Major endings and new beginnings can take place. A new beginning may take a bit longer since Mars in Aquarius is in retrograde motion and Mercury is in the retrograde shadow. It may be better to complete rather than begin now. The main theme of the New Moon is family relationships and letting go of any childhood behavior patterns that keep you stuck and interfere with your life now.
Is the incoming New Moon energy intense again you ask? Yes, intense again and again until you release those deeply hidden emotional patterns which continue to trip you up and pull you back. Are you ready to act on letting go of that which will keep you from accessing your highest self on your path? What is the fear about? Fear-yes, fear! It has been sitting there poking you and creating chaos. You have been pulled into your current mindset due to this fear and it keeps you from enjoying the peace and love that you choose to ignore. And if you recognize your fear then, guess what, you can truly let it go. Then a shift of energy emerges.
Cancer seeks security and a loving feeling of home within. This time it is about some things like your domestic issues, roots, foundation, and self-worth. The Cancer eclipse is about nurturing yourself. This moon may show you what is not nurturing you. Perhaps it will bring to the forefront what you no longer care about. It is a truly sensitive New Moon Eclipse and if you have suppressed feelings they may rise to the surface. Are you afraid of change? Cancer is. It is time for you to go beyond your comfort zone and stop resisting. As I mentioned earlier allow the intense feelings to move through so then change appears.
I see that where the Solar Eclipse New Moon at 20 degrees 41’ falls in your birth chart is where the truth will shine its light and what has been hidden will be revealed. If this does not serve your highest good then a rebirth can come in. Where have you been undermining and rejecting yourself? Watch your own reactions and responses at this time. And interestingly enough Pluto in Capricorn is opposes this New moon Solar Eclipse exactly. It may create disturbances in family or intimate relationships. Dysfunctional patterns can arise from the depths and it is saying to release any deep-seated emotional patterns. Are you ready to do this? It will harangue you in some way if you do not. Transformation is awaiting you. Pluto in Capricorn is retrograde and is saying to you to stand in your power at all times. And if you feel tired, take a rest already. If you have secrets they may come out now. Take no risks at the time of the eclipse. And make no final decisions until after the New Moon eclipse energy. Keep in mind that you may find yourself attracting luxury. Share some with your family.
The New Moon in Cancer is trine Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. This helps you bring to the fore an imaginative power that will take you far. What is the vision you have for yourself and the world? Venus just turned direct on July 9 and is now in Virgo. Do you tend to have such high expectations and standards of love that you push others away and they feel unloved? Do you feel lonely in love that you have no one to rely on or to share things? Venus in Virgo is asking you to be gentle in your approach. Venus is trine Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. This supports the energy of the New Moon Solar Eclipse. It will help ground you during this intense energy and help you to detox. Oh yes!!!
And to top off the energy Jupiter in Scorpio goes direct on July 12, 2018 at 13 degrees. If you have been getting yourself out there and still no results, you may find opportunities appearing now and you may be reaping your rewards which were slow in coming in the past few months. It is also tightening its trine to Neptune in Pisces so spirituality and creativity are prominent and accessing your inner wisdom and higher power may begin to ease into your life. On a bigger scale- financial corruption may show up when least expected and the truth shows up at last. With Jupiter going forward it is a time when the truth does come to light.
The main theme is about transforming what is already present and letting go of the junk that you keep bringing up from the past. Lots of imagination and creativeness may be present. Sign no contracts this month. Deal with the business contacts you already have and renegotiate and regenerate those connections. Wait to start any new business or new job situation since there are hidden things that will show up. Family issues may surface so observe before reacting. Apply the energy to your finances, creativity or a love relationship. Watch for stubbornness or addiction as you deal with this energy. Try to transform some things before the July 27 Lunar Eclipse in Leo.
Those Sun signs/Ascendants most affected are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn from 16-24 degrees. If you have personal planets close to 20 degrees of these signs then you will also feel some intensity.
Thank you for reading and sharing if you will. Life is shifting dramatically and the Sun is more intense than ever. Notice how it is more white than yellow at times. I would love to hear your comments on this and I will try to respond to them. Again have a beautiful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. Tune into Wizards Within Radio Show on Wednesday night at 9pm EDT. We talk about all kinds of interesting topics. Many blessings! Until again, Love, Jan
Around and around we go where we stop nobody knows. Isn’t this how it is at the present time in the US of A and the rest of the world? There is so much craziness with so many out there that I find the only thing to do is observe others. And what do I observe? Chatter and more chatter continues on; disruption and constant need for attention appears. Significant change has to take place yet the way it is occurring is a bit over the top for many of you. Before I note why I say this I ask you – when was the last time you really looked within and recognized your truth? The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces is going to be intensely affecting many of you and if you are not paying attention where do you think it will take you? It is time to release the illusions that have surrounded you and leap forward on your path. Will you do so? Will you? I hear the echoes of those who say they are too busy; they are not interested; they are too old; they are you name it. Life is shifting and whether you choose to acknowledge the coming changes then maybe you need to just keep pretending and let the illusions dominate your life.
Fake news, gibberish, lying, deceit, global wars, outrageous behavior, and the list goes on and on. What is it saying to you? Are you going to jump on the bandwagon to destruction and live in the controls of those who wish to take over your life? Or will you stand in your power for once in your life and walk through the door once and for all. You have a choice now to be in a controlled world or be free. Which do you choose? Google took down Mike Adams, Natural News website for some odd technical issue which was used a few years back. Go ahead search it, not found. Soon if you promote anything that is not on the agenda, it will disappear also. He promotes wellness. Oh no. You are in charge of you. No one else is. But that remains to be seen. On the other hand the anti-Trump bandwagon is in full swing for the conditioned of the world. Research already and see what this is all about. Sorry, dear ones, many of you will not because you are under control. Do you want a war? Maybe give it some serious thought as to what you do want in your life. The New Moon Solar Eclipse may just open a new door and will you be ready? One more thing Nick Ortner and the World Tapping Summit begins Monday night February 27, 2017. If you are not tapping you need to check it out. I have found it works wonders for so many issues.
Let me suggest for the New Moon in Pisces that you write down your intentions as to what you would like to take place in your life. Since it is occurring in Pisces then choose those things which are ruled by Pisces. Some would be: trusting the Higher Power, psychic sensitivity, addictions, imagination and happiness within. For instance you may write: “I wish to attend yoga class ? times a month” or “I wish to have support from the Angels in my creativity projects. Those are a couple examples.” See if you can come up with about 5 intentions. There are some who say you may wish to come up with 10 intentions. You decide.
The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces arrives on February 26, 2017 at 9:58am EST, 6:58am PST and 2:58pm GMT in 8 degrees 12’ where the Sun is also located. This is the last of the series of eclipses in Pisces. It is about endings and also new beginnings. Since it is conjunct the South Node It will tend to bring to you a final review of those things that are no longer needed in your life – old patterns, feeling defeated, escapism or being too idealistic. Whatever appears in front of you will have to be walked through. It is time to use your intuitive powers to see through whatever fog has enveloped you through the past. Now Is that moment in time. The New Moon is conjunct Neptune which rules Pisces and Mercury which is bringing to you the connection to your higher self or soul. Are you ready for this to occur? Or will you continue to stay in the fogginess or those illusions that others create? The New Moon with Neptune tends to bring about a dreamy quality to your life. Watch for lies that you may not realize are lies. You may connect the past to the future.
Some other aspects are Mars in Aries conjunct Uranus in Aries at 21+ degrees which is a quite exciting energy if you allow it. What goes on in the arena of sexuality may sizzle and some kind of liberating energy may take over in another area of your life. Some surprise may show up. Mars and Uranus are also opposite Jupiter in Libra. It creates a T-square with Pluto in Capricorn. Some may be involved in power struggles. Don’t go there. You have those who may choose a freedom quest out there; the individuals who will choose rebellious actions and the competitive types. Lots of interesting interactions may take place that may bring about some kind of reform. The polarization of the masses is evident with the opposition of Mars/Uranus opposite Jupiter.
With the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces there may be some kind of connection to ancestral karma for those of you who are affected. It could be related to your creativity from ancestral lines. So if something opens up for you do follow it through in a creative way. Also the Solar Eclipse in Pisces is showing how divided the country is and can bring up the victim within you. Or how about you follow the path to spiritual awakening instead? Wouldn’t you like to turn your dreams into a new reality? It is a fortunate New Moon Solar Eclipse if you just let the creative juices flow.
Those most affected are birthdays February 21-March 1; May 21-May 29; August 23-31 and November 23-December 1. Sun signs and rising signs intensely affected are Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius degrees 3-12 degrees.
Some basic influences for the Sun signs/rising signs:
Aries- It is time to fade out and take care of you. Watch uncontrollable reactions.
Taurus- Friends may be a lot warmer now. You are on a roll and want what you want.
Gemini-Is it a pipe dream or a real vision that you can manifest. Open to be inspired.
Cancer- You may not be able to relax like you wish. Watch for any major upsets.
Leo- Have an alternate plan ready just in case. Watch deceptive financial interests.
Virgo- New patterns emerge in your relationship area. Plant new seeds now!
Libra-Watch out for argumentative and pushy others. Come up with some compassion.
Scorpio-Enhanced love and personal affairs are in the limelight. Do not instigate. Watch health.
Sagittarius-Look before you leap! It is time to bring your dreams to reality.
Capricorn-Soothing words and intuitive thinking may be what you wish. Watch for fights.
Aquarius-Set your limits and do respect them. Watch out for over-extension in finances.
Pisces-Whatever you begin now has long term impact. You may get what you wish to manifest.
Horse came up in Animal Powers card pull. You do not have to act like a bucking bronco to move ahead where you need to go.
Don’t forget those intentions! This is a time of sensitivity. Empower others and refrain from trying to rescue them. Respect others and watch boundaries. And watch out for the unexpected.

It is getting a bit rowdy out there. Amazing to me that so many are still in the gunk of the past and cannot move on, let it go and just live right now in this moment. But it is going to continue down the road. Seems to me the show is getting a bit overly dramatic and those who need to be in the limelight will get more creative with their actions whether good or not so good. It may be time to stay with the Aquarian Sun and look for answers outside the box. Get moving into that visionary part of you as you create. Then again, you know everyone will be looking for attention with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo. Lights on for the next play! As I begin to write this all eyes are on the Super Bowl. Oh, I am a big fan of the team that people hate, yet it is not about that right now. We shall see what occurs as the game is over. (The Patriots won after being down 25 points. I turned it off and as I was about to turn it back on about 5 minutes later a voice said OT is going to happen. I said really? And it happened. Football angels I guess.)
In the meantime the outpouring of violence, threats and other ramblings about the current state of affairs in this country is totally insane. What about the changes do you despise so much? Is it really you or are you so programmed that you cannot see the truth? I am observing the constant rant against that which has occurred in the United States of America. I get swearing on Facebook and taunting about things that have nothing to do with anything. That is certainly everyone’s choice! In my country freedom reigns supreme! Of course, you may wish to live enslaved. That is your free will. My only question remains-what is the hatred about? Remember, dear ones, what you dislike in others is what you dislike in yourself. Somewhere in time you may wish you had stayed strong in your power and recognized what was going on here. Just my two cents which will buy you nothing! So onward I go to Mr. Full Moon in LEO. And the Russians are not responsible for the Full Moon. Just saying! (if we cannot laugh and be loving then what is the point?). As they always said the truth will set you free.
The Full Moon in Leo, the drama planet, the star, the dancing queen, shows up in the sky on Friday, February 10, 2017 at 7:32 PM EST, 4:32 PM PST and on Saturday, February 11 at 12:32 GMT in 22 degrees 28’. The Sun in Aquarius is sitting at the exact same degree. What is the Full Moon in Leo trying to say? This is a warning since it also is a Lunar Eclipse. No need to hide out even though it may be a bit intense. First of all, since this is the week of the Lunar Eclipse, it says that the energy is increasing and on that day, February 10/11 try to refrain from making any major new beginnings since it is a fated type of day. Whatever is expected to happen from a decision made may turn out totally different. Wait at least until the next week to decide on some matter which you are looking to act upon. More clarity will show up and a better decision can be made. The fated part is taken out of the picture if you wait a week.
Ol’ Full Moon in Leo tells you to watch emotional reactions around this time. It is a good time for you to take a creative direction during this time. Do you know what you came here to do? Maybe you just need to figure it out and finally put it out there. Just wait until the few days past to do so since you do not want to have to take you somewhere you don’t wish to be. If you are looking to transform something about how you see yourself then this is a good time to do so. Of course, relationships with others may be slightly strained due to each of you wishing to do your own thing. Just allow what is to be. Keep the drama to a minimum since Leo loves the dramatic picture. If emotional issues arise then it is time to address them and let them go already. Yes, let them go. Being creative to some indicates a sort of rebellion. If you are in a creative place then that means you are on a path of your own following. Act on your creativity instead of getting caught up in the stress-related carping of the media which is too much drama. And drama tears down that intuitive and creative sense which is important at this time.
Since this Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse it is a deeply transformative time that can bring sudden change. On the other hand it take you to a place where you thought you would not end up, but it is definitely where you need to be. The Lunar Eclipse is a time of change. Scary to so many of you, I know. But it will be for the better!!! That sounds good to me. ON ANOTHER NOTE for those who are interested This is a night of passion and heat. If you want hot, you got it. So if you have the time and place go dance a dance and light up a new place.
Those of you coming from your lower selves (ego) at the time of the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Leo may find ego totally in the forefront this week. Are you one of those who will get caught up in the media frenzy? It does you little good. The focus is on your authenticity. Is staying authentic going to be your mantra or will you stay in the acting realm looking to seek attention?
Right in the area of the Full Moon in Leo is Regulus, fixed star of royalty/kings and it is conjunct the Full Moon in Leo. Regulus is one of the four royal stars and it is prominent in President Trump’s chart at his rising sign in Leo. So does it mean that Mr. Trump will change something in his personality or something unexpected comes from elsewhere? It brings about wealth and good fortune but can indicate violence also. Regulus wins over enemies.
There is also a grand fire trine. The trine comprises of Uranus in Aries, the Moon in Leo, and Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn is in its detriment in Sagittarius plods away slowly though the 25th degree. His slow and steady gait will eventually overtake electric Uranus in Aries with its fiery urges, while the quick moon dances around them all. Even if there are challenges you will find a way to walk through them.
Jupiter will be retrograde in Libra for about 4 months starting this past Monday, February 6 until June 9, 2017! It is a time for you to look within and evolve beyond the norm. You have to look at your current situation and go within to find answers that have eluded you. It is time to find balance in your life, in your relationships and what is going on in the world.
I picked an Animal Powers card for the Full Moon and guess what I got Cat. How interesting. Meditate on Cat when you need for confidence and to feel better about yourself. See through the eyes of a cat and you will see a world that respects you, fears you. If you need to make adjustments to your plan, call on Cat. It will also lead you to your time and purpose.
Thank you for reading. Stay in balance, in the moment and be authentic as you create. Tune in Tuesdays 9pm EST for my radio show Going Beyond Astrology on the SGN mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ Had computer issues and am back for February 14. Also check out some great articles on offthecuffe-zine.com. Lots of blessings to all! Until again. Love, Jan
How have you been in this craziness the last couple of weeks? I am amazed at the amount of untruths that continue to pop up in the media along with the basic fears showing up for so many individuals. What is the fear about? I keep asking myself am I living in a dreamland filled with those who are real; or am I living in reality and everyone else lives in a far off land to which I have no connection. So what is really going on here? I find it fascinating that so many avoid the inner wisdom and prefer to jump into the maelstrom of vindictiveness, crazy actions and hiding behind other’s beliefs. This New Moon in Aquarius may help set it all straight in a very unexpected way. I guess it will manifest the way one intends it to do so. And along with the New Moon the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster arrives on the same day. If you are looking to climb to new levels in all areas of your life then here is your chance. This won’t happen if you are just sitting on your couch.
In the meantime I am absolutely astonished regarding those who continue to not think for themselves. Aquarius is about the visionary, community involvement and friendships. It is about free-thinking and independent spirit. Maybe the Aquarian New Moon will give you the opportunity to open your eyes to a different perspective on what is going on in your life and the world in general. Maybe it will also whisper in your ears that you can make a difference without name-calling, slurs and all negative actions that I have seen in the past few months. This is leading up to a wake-up call for many. I am totally befuddled by the attention-seeking behavior of women these days. Yes, the feminine principle has long been in effect yet kept in check by many. A lot of it will just be a verbal circus and not to be taken seriously. At present with this new moon in Aquarius there is a different masculine energy that emerges also. What will happen is up to you? In the meantime there is lots of resentment. There are ugly words and anything but peaceful protesting obvious to me in the marches by women around the world. Do you really think the comments by Madonna and Ashley Judd will take women to a new place in society?. I guess I must be from the other planet because I see this so differently than most. But that is ok since it is a necessary thing to happen so eventually those who continue to walk in the dream state or live in the bubble will wake up. Because I am a woman I have my rights. Yes, I do. Get a grip because life will continue to change and if you continue to be negative then that is what you will get from others-negativity.
The New Moon in Aquarius arrives on January 27 2017 at 7:06 PM EST, 4:06 PM PST and 12:06 AM GMT.(January 28) at 8 degrees 15’. The Sun is also at the same degree in Aquarius. There is no major aspect affecting it. There is a conjunction with Isis and Osiris asteroids of Egyptian realm which may bring more focus on twin flames and the abandonment issue in relationships. It lends a very strong energy to your relationship and many fear the depth of feelings that come up. Does it mean a coming together of more twin flames with deep love this coming month? Isis and Osiris are about the balance between the masculine and feminine and since they are in Aquarius right now it says something unexpected or unusual will be in the mix along with a freedom-bent. So for now during this New Moon energy it tells you to let go of preconceived notions about a possible twin flame connection. It will be what it is.
In the meantime Uranus rules Aquarius of the New Moon. In the ancient world Saturn was the ruler. The energies of Uranus are electric and crammed with change. Uranus is forward-looking. Uranus dislikes tradition and celebrates your individuality and creativity. Negative expression of Uranus is being a rebel without a cause and taking no responsibility. When Uranus is not developed, it reacts; but when natives are truly in tune with its energies, Uranus is highly intuitive and that urge will help bring about originality. It is time to focus on your individuality. With Aquarian Moon it asks you to liberate yourself from some situation that has bogged you down and then you will find that you can start a new creation with this New Moon. All the planets are direct now at the New Moon so you no longer are held back in taking big leaps forward. Are you going to do this? I hope you find a way to find the inspiration to do so. Create now and you will be amazed at where it takes you. Use some Neroli essential oil for this New Moon.
Venus in Pisces is squaring (in conflict) Saturn in Sagittarius. So it is saying that old karmic stuff is rearing its ugly head if I may be so trite. Yes, it is time to realize what you need to finally let go depending on where it falls in your natal blueprint. What causes most fear in you regarding your belief about love? Is that what needs to be released. I think so. This can cause big problems in all forms of relationships whether in business or your romantic life. Try not to push partners away, and work towards taking the initiative towards breaking through any walls that may have built up. Marriages can be rocky at this time if touched by this New Moon. Either you or your partner could feel unappreciated by the other. Why not reach out with a big hug? Watch you aren’t taken for granted even in work arena. Also, be sure to look carefully at contracts or other agreements made at this time. The good news is that if the romance or business collaboration makes it through this New Moon test phase it should go into a finer place as you create a new beginning. Venus is also about money. You may feel a bit more ambitious and work much harder this month to stand out amongst others.
This can also be a time when you arrive at a crossroads and must make some firm choices, or when circumstances might force you to change your direction. The outcome is up to you and may be different than what you looked for.
Mars moves into its own sign Aries (the same day of the New Moon) where it commands its world. This is the beginning of a new cycle since it has been two years since Mars has been home. If you have Mars in Aries in your natal chart then you will be ready to start again and move forward. Where does it fall in your chart will tell you where the new cycle starts and what is the main focus. Mars is about progress and achievement. It is a good time to set those intentions for the year. If you lost your passion now you may feel a new surge of such. Will you sense a rebirth? And Mercury finally leaves its retrograde shadow on the New Moon day. This means the confusion, delays and miscommunications of the last 2 months have mostly dissipated. Look for more choices now. Look for a new decision or a way of understanding may be better. It is time to take another look at whatever the question you put off during Mercury retrograde.
Thank you for reading and do share with others if you choose. I wish you well and thank you for you and all you do. Bring out the individual within and create a new direction.

New Moon in Capricorn, December 28/29 2016-Manifesting dreams by releasing all but the authentic you
What an unusual holiday season! How is it going with you and yours this time of celebration? This is a time of new seeds as the New Moon approaches as it is at every new moon. Do you have intentions for the time period and also the coming New Year? Where will it find you in 2017? Same old same old? Or will you take that leap that you have been pondering since the beginning of this past year? And have you let go of the many things that no longer are pertinent to you like grudges, rivalries, past patterns, habits, fears and old behavior? Just wondering how you intend to move forward with any negativity holding you back. The energy that has been coming in has been affecting many of you and you cannot figure out why or what is happening. This energy will continue to get stronger because it is here to wake you up. Yes, that is correct. So, if you are still holding onto the past, do not. Get yourself into a peaceful place and stop bellyaching about who, what, when where and why anything happened in the past to you? Take a look at it and you know what, let it go. Seriously, it is important. It is a very positive thing to do. Try it. I have and have been successful at the releasing of the old.
Odds and ends of the world are beyond my interest anymore. It is as if it is all a bunch of gobbledygook and who cares. It is filled with lies and deceptions so deep it makes my head spin. Oh, yes, there are things that would be good to take a look and assess before going off the deep end. Many famous personalities have passed on this year. They probably got fed up with the craziness- George Michael, Carrie Fisher, of course, Prince, Alan Thicke and a whole lot more through the year. Violence in Germany is out of control. Another earthquake occurred this time in Chile. Snopes has a prostitute checking whether the facts are accurate. And the best I leave for last that President Obama has signed a bill two days before Christmas that makes it illegal to have an alternative news website. Does that mean a blogging website can be taken down? Life is getting really weird.
And now the New Moon in Capricorn arrives on Thursday, December 29, 2016 in 7 degrees 59’ at 1:53am EST, 6:53am GMT and 10:53pm PST (December 28, 2016). The Sun is also in Capricorn at the same degree. This New Moon can go either way. It is conjunct Mercury Retrograde and sextile fixed star Skat. In sextile to Skat in Pisces it can help to bring good fortune to you especially if you worked hard to get it. It is also sextile Mars in Pisces. Capricorn is the mountain goat. It may be slightly slow in movement yet very little gets by the goat. So what exactly does that mean for you with this New Moon in Capricorn? Well, since it wishes to take everything to the limit it is about leaping within and putting every bit of your mind, spirit and body knowing that it is time to address your mission in life. Are you ready to do this?
Capricorn is an Earth sign so it is grounded and it brings that to you. How can you take the goals you have and fulfill them? One step at a time is the best way since the darkest days are passing and setting them now will bring those dreams and goals to fruition as the light of day becomes longer. Since this New Moon takes place as the old year is ending, it is a time of introspection as to where you have come from, what when on this past year and where in the world you are heading. Some of you have found the 2016 year a total conundrum in more ways than one. I found it fascinating since I relocated with many delays in the process and so many asking me why I chose where I did. The questions were the strangest yet on some level they opened my eyes to more than was obvious. Something occurred in my life that turned my thinking around and what a pleasant surprise when I really found my flaws and chose to release them. How different I feel now. So, yes, it was a chore at times, yet it was growth-producing in such positive ways.
This New Moon may bring some regeneration to you depending how it affects your natal blueprint since it is widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn also. As I mentioned it is sitting with Mercury Retrograde. That makes it very interesting since retrograde motion is about revising, revisiting, renewing, revamping and you pick whatever “re” word you like and that’s what it is about also. What can you bring forward with you into the New Year? What will you need to release? Did you learn from your mistakes of this past year? It is time to take a good look at what fears you still hold, what failures kept you back? Then once you do that you can take a leap forward in the long-term. New Moon in Capricorn conjunct retrograde Mercury is about perseverance and once it climbs that mountain it excels. You basically have to go back to move forward in order for those intentions to take hold. And it is important to stay in the present more than ever as you do this. Being authentic is part of the process. Say what you truly mean but watch your words. Keep in mind that encouraging your loved ones is a big item now.
Some other aspects include Jupiter opposite Uranus. And there it is right in front of you an opportunity of a lifetime. Will you even recognize it? Will you even choose to do anything with it? I hope you do. Remember not to sign anything until Mercury goes direct on January 8, 2017 and to tell you the truth I would wait until around the 13th of January.
What is your most passionate desire regarding your move forward, your goal? Take action upon one goal. The Fixed Star Skat in 9 degrees Pisces sextiles New Moon in Capricorn. That tells me that since Skat is a very favorable star it is about a wish. Is there something that you truly wish in your life? Then Skat will help you get those hopes and wishes if you really deserve them. Since Mars and Neptune are also conjunct Skat and sextile the New Moon in Capricorn it tells you that if you have kept your life running smoothly in many ways then you can manifest your dreams. And on top of that these aspects give you a feeling of romance and sensuality so if you are looking for that dream prince/princess then you never know they just might show up. To help the process overall those inner demons need to be let go. Banish them.
The most intensely affected Sun signs and personal planets are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn at 3-11 degrees. Birthdays affected are March 23-March 31; June 23-July 1; September 25- October 2 and December 23-31. Stay positive!!!

“Horse spirit, please come to me. I thank you for leaving the freedom of the plains behind. To lighten my load with your strong body and helpful way. And take me to far foo places faster than I could ever go. You help me learn the ways of others and teach them mine. You help me jump over all obstacles on my journey.
