Hello dear ones. Someone said I was a bit too much on the edge or maybe just trying to wake you up, in the last post. That’s ok because the truth is all there is. Before the New Moon/Solar Eclipse pops in let me ask you this… how was the energy of the Full Moon in Capricorn for you? Did you allow the release to show up or do you continue to walk in fear? And now immediately before the New Moon comes in you will find yourself in the Valentine’s Day energy. Did you know there is an asteroid named Valentine? It is a true love aspect. Depends where it falls in your natal chart will signify where you make sacrifices for your true love. Hope you are having a Happy Valentine’s Day.
I have been noticing how intense some of you are. I am picking it up strongly. Do you feel it? It is not just the surrounding energy but also the frenetic energy of you. What is happening within you? Open your eyes dear ones now and notice the way life surrounds you; wouldn’t it be a wonder if you can take a leap that brings a new vision into your view? What makes you most happy? This Aquarian New Moon loves to be in the moment. HA. Yes, my favorite thing. What makes you feel free? Does this free feeling come from a walk in the forest, looking out over the ocean, dancing around the house or extreme exercising? What is it that brings that joy of freedom to you? That is what Aquarius likes and is all about. Aquarius is a visionary, a seer also. So when the New Moon /Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius arrives on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 4:05pm EST, 1:05pm PST, and 9:05pm GMT in 27degrees 07’ what is it telling you? It asks- where do you choose to be? Are you still hanging onto the past trash that has inhibited you from moving in the direction that will open big doors for you? What keeps you so mired in your detours of the mind? You surely are choosing to rise above this and take that leap. Will you? It is time for a reboot with this new moon/solar eclipse. Will you take the opportunity to open your eyes to a new vision or idea that may change your world in some way? Something changes in a big way. That is going to happen for everyone. Just know that things will shift whether you are ready or not. The New Moon is conjunct (within one-two degrees) of Juno and Mercury. Both are right there in Aquarius. Juno is the asteroid of marriage, loyalty and commitment. Some of you may find a partner in your life now if you do not have one. It is about looking within and seeing how the old rules fit the new paradigm. Do you dream only that your relationship is perfect? Some may find a new and better way to do things in your marriage. And some may find an ending.
With this New Moon /Solar Eclipse in Aquarius there are endings. Things and people who no longer need to be in your life will leave. This is what Solar Eclipses do. No regrets please. This is a time for you to leap without anyone holding you back. If someone leaves it is due to the fact they no longer have a purpose in your life at this time. Let go. Strange dreams may occur and old memories rise from the depths of your psyche. Mercury in Aquarius is also eclipsed since it is only a degree away from the New Moon. It says to you that it is time to let the rush of your outside world go and step within already. Many of you have been emerged into a craziness of the mainstream news and worldly events. Now is more of a time of finding that inner you and opening to a new perspective. The New Moon is also square Jupiter in Scorpio and sextile Uranus in Aries. This makes for surprising events to take place or unexpected news. As Bob Dylan said, “times they are a changin’ ’” Remember that Aquarius represents the collective. This is a truly a major turning point for everyone. In some ways it is the final clearing out of the sludge in your life and allowing it to be taken away by a flash of the mind. On the other hand it brings you the opportunity for a new beginning as most new moons do. With it having an extra push to it with the Partial Solar Eclipse it will provide you with openings taking leaps and getting back on track. This is the first of five eclipses this year. There was a Lunar Eclipse on January 31, 2018. There is a Solar Eclipse coming up on the February 15, 2018 which is the one in this post. Then there is one on July 12 and August 11. And a total Lunar Eclipse comes around on July 27, 2018. Shifting and more shifting is now the norm. Let go and allow the new vision to come in.
And if you need to release something that is holding you back do it the Native Americans way. Write the situation out on paper and then put the paper in a heat-proof container/pot and light it on fire. As you watch the smoke go up think about what you are letting go to Spirit and release from your life. Do it in a safe place. Now you can move on.
Aries – Suddenly you may be in the spotlight for some ability that is unique. You have ideas that others now see as favorable insights. Run with them and support comes. Do not let others infer that you are selfish due to the new way of thinking. Look for expansion in your life.
Taurus – What is you plan these days career-wise? Do you have an idea that you may choose to use in starting your own business? This is time for something new that exhilarates and excites your path. Forget what others tell you to do. It is now your vision. Do it. Support comes.
Gemini –Are you looking to travel to faraway places? A dream come true may show up. Or do you have something that you can share with others that will give you some major expertise? You may get a better view of the world by taking some course that advances your knowledge.
Cancer –How are you going to pay off those bills? You are now looking for financial security. Even some sensual pleasure can be in the mix of the Eclipse especially if your budget is on track. Something may show up out of the blue and it changes for the better.
Leo – If you are looking to merge with others either in a partnership or business now is the time. Express how you feel about your relationship so far and how it has affected you. Understand their needs and yours too. A new alliance is also favored.
Virgo – Whatever you are doing workwise may change because you choose to go it alone. Stop thinking in a conventional manner and your life may light up with this change. You may want to change your appearance slightly or do something better healthwise.
Libra Have you been having creative ideas lately such as a design or book? This may be time for a big breakthrough. Keep it lively. Your partner may inspire you with new ideas and your family is supportive. Go for it.
Scorpio –You need to make your lifestyle your own not what your family taught you. Live your truth. How do you hope to redesign your living? Find greater excitement in your life. Get together with others with a goal in mind.
Sagittarius – Change your attitude. Be positive in every way whether it is money you need or love that is out there, Be thankful for what you have, Think about what you choose to experience and it appears.
Capricorn -What opportunity is in front of you? You name it and you can do it. Write something, talk about another idea and get yourself out there. Forget the corporate. Be unique and support will come. Your purchasing power improves.
Aquarius What is your main vision for yourself? This is a big time for you. Stop limiting your actions and your thoughts. Change what needs to be changed and walk forward. Be your unconventional self and see what happens.
Pisces – Get rid of childhood beliefs. If you are fearful where is it taking you? Love and more love is needed within yourself. Then you will find a breakthrough. Dream symbols may be intense and help with taking a leap.
Thank you again for reading and sharing if you will. I appreciate any comments that you may have. May you be blessed as you walk through the New Moon Solar Eclipse. Allow yourself to shift something so that life is exciting and feels like new. Check out offthecuffe-zine.com for other articles. Until again. Love, Jan
NEW MOON in Capricorn, January 16/17, 2018- Love will help you climb the mountain even if unexpected shows up
Happy New Year dear ones! It has been an interesting start to 2018. It amazes me at times how the energy unfolds so easily and then bam…it goes chaotic. Someone said to me this morning that it sounded like chaos when I described my last couple of days. Since I just really have begun to think about what the first New Moon of 2018 means in terms of influences…well, guess what? It could be chaotic. Leave it to me to pull the energy in sooner. What this says is that I was trying to control the flow (who me, the one who is the master of going with the flow) and obviously it was having none of it. Have to laugh at that one. It shifted back to a flow once I gave up trying to control it. Of course it did. Uranus in Aries is squaring the New Moon in Capricorn and that says it all. Will get to this later!
New Moon says to plant new seeds and move step by step forward. It is a time to put your intentions out there but do consider inviting your intuitive nature in also because if you go in a new direction based on old beliefs this will come back and haunt you and may take you down the wrong path. You can listen to others but your own hunches, your own balance between mind and heart can be your saving grace instead of those who think they know what it is you need to do. Stay in your power and listen to what your feelings are telling you also. The New Moon in Capricorn says your intentions are out in the world, business-based and incorporating 5-year plans. Your goals are important with this New Moon and if they do not come about immediately, just keep going.
On some level I am just really worn out from all the drama and negativity that envelops the world at this time. So, is there anything important that needs to be shared before I move into the influences of the New Moon? Do you believe in the Globalist agenda? I will watch it happen if you out there do nothing except stare at your phones. The 83rd Holistic Physician was found dead recently. So what do you think is going on here? Do you truly know what is going on in this life play? Or do you just believe it and think it is right? What is the truth about anything? Are you being your truth?Will you? The Network which is carrying the Super Bowl is all hot on making sure you see if anyone does a protest when the National Anthem is playing. I would say the Network is a bunch of jerks and adding this as I revise this post, the Network never showed the National Anthem in either game so far in the playoffs. One more thing- Facebook is now working on a gadget that will be able to read your mind. Privacy, huh? Onward to the New Moon!
The New Moon in Capricorn arrives on January 16, 2018 at 9:17pm EST, 6:17pm PST and on January 17, 2018 at 2:17am GMT in 26degrees 54’. The Sun in Capricorn is in the exact degree. Capricorn is the third Earth sign along with Taurus and Virgo. It is also a Cardinal sign. It begins the winter season. The three other Cardinal signs begin each other season. What does this Capricorn new moon bring to you? It says that fear may be present since Capricorn does rule it. I have asked many times through the years- what is your fear and why is it holding you back? Many of you choose to sit with the old beliefs as I have stated earlier and live that life. At this New Moon which precedes the Lunar Eclipse Blue Moon at the end of the month it is time to take the reins and move up that mountain. It is time to decide what direction you choose to take and write down that intention within the first 24 hours after the New Moon arrives. It is best to write a short list not too long after the New Moon is in effect. Since Capricorn is ruled by the taskmaster Saturn that says to you…go for it…even if it is something that takes time to do. Saturn just entered Capricorn December 19, 2017. How has that been working for you? At the moment the New Moon is saying to you move forward slow and steady and you will be amazed at the outcome. Remember you are climbing the mountain like the goat. Since there are eclipses down the road following this New Moon it is time to finish some old projects that may be hanging on as you enter the New Year. Will you have the impetus to finish them so you can now move on?
As this New Moon commences it has Uranus in Aries squaring (conflict) it. What this is saying is that there can be unexpected or disruptive influences showing up since Uranus is the revolutionary at heart. As I said in the beginning of the post I did encounter this chaos a few days ago since my moon in Capricorn and progressed (where it is found in a chart for the date it is right now) Sun was affected then. What does that say? It is telling you to just be aware of the energy and stay in the moment instead of reacting. Oh, I know, some of you will be pulled into it. Just know that the New Moon is conjunct (2 degrees apart) Venus in Capricorn which is at 28 degrees. Are you loving and accepting yourself at this time? If not, how will you open to love from another? What are your deepest feelings? Are you in your truth? Are you being authentic? That is what shows up now. Look within and see how you feel and let go of old patterns that have plagued you since your childhood. Are you ready to do this so you can feel unconditional love? New Moon is also sextiling (positive) Mars in Scorpio which can bring a more sexy tone to the results of the possible disruptive Uranus . It also gives you an opportunity to move through any obstacles that may arise. Love does rule in the end. Keep that in mind no matter what you encounter. As this energy prevails I continue to suggest you stay in the moment and begin to bring awareness to the forefront. This says to you to get out of your head already and just be. I know many of you will frown when you read this due to the earlier conditioning that has occurred. On another note- what does it take for you to uncover your inner truth, examine it and follow it?
Jupiter in Scorpio is sextile (positive) Pluto in Capricorn as the New Moon comes in and will be a signature aspect as the year goes on. It is a transformative influence in your life and wherever it falls in your chart will tell you what part of your life will be transformed if you allow it. As it begins it is about a possible new direction or letting go of any sense of duty to others. Guess what- as I have said in the past living your truth is important and that is what Jupiter/Pluto influence is definitely saying to you. Wealth and abundance also play into it in a major way. Where are you going to allow your authentic self to take you? Are you ready to open to it?
Those most intensely affected are those who are under the following signs: Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra with Sun, Moon, and Ascendant at 21 degrees – 29 degrees of those signs. If you have any personal planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) in those degrees there may be some influence. Birthdays – January 12-19/20, April 12-20/21, July 14-22 and October 15-23.
Thank you for reading and sharing. I am most grateful for your kind support. Keep your heart open to unconditional love and let the fear be gone already. Some things are shifting dramatically and speeding up yet at the same time the energy is giving you an opportunity to take it slowly one step up the mountain at a time. Paradoxical at best! Comments are always welcome. Many blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
“Trust yourself and you will know how to live” ~ Goethe Where or where has the holiday cheer gone, there seems to be a block so deep, as I look around my realm, I notice how most continue to sleep. Running here and running there without any joy or peace wake up to the reality of what goes on or do you choose to go on as sheep? Do you find that social media is more important than enjoying the season? I know life has changed considerably in the past decade but in my observation nothing has changed. How many of you can stay off your phone for more than 30 minutes? Ok, that is a long time…how about 15 minutes? I am appalled that young children would rather play on the phone with a game than spend any time interacting with other children. Soon, there will be nothing but human robots and then maybe no humans, just robots. And you buy into this? It is time to wake up.
Other things-US Army representatives are saying that some airspace over Syria belongs to the US. How can that be when Syria is a UN member and sovereign state and no individual space allotted? In the last year there is so much advertising on TV regarding drugs it makes my head spin. Most every channel has it and since I do not watch TV before later evening I am sure it is even worse during the day. Pharmaceutical companies spent $3.2 billion on ads for TV in one year. Are you serious? I saw that Robert Kennedy Jr. wanted to talk about his film Trace Amounts on a show and he called Fox News and he was told no by someone he knew. It is about mercury in vaccines and the networks get too much money from the Pharm companies. Nothing new as to who controls much of the world. Jim Stone said the election in Alabama was a complete farce since there is no proof of vote count. Oh, as long as it is going the way of the anti-whoever people it is good for them. Remember the gulag can come to America.
What is a New Moon? It is a burst of new energy which lasts until the next new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from December 18 to the January 1 2018 Full Moon in Capricorn.
New Moon in Sagittarius arrives in 26 degrees 31’ at 1:30am EST and 6:30am GMT on December 18, 2107; 10:30pm PST on December 17, 2017. The Sun is in the exact degree as the Moon. This is a time of finding your way through a twisting road where you cannot see that well. And on top of that it is a time of also letting your past behind which I have spoken about for several years. I still find many stuck there. This New Moon in Sagittarius is asking you to figure out what is still holding you back and walk through that darkness already. Let the beam of light on your helmet help you forge ahead to a new year and a new start. Are you willing to do this? This New Moon is conjunct (0 degrees) the Galactic Center vortex (hole) in the center of the universe. There is a plethora of golden influences at the Center but to get there you will need to protect yourself with Light surrounding you. If you allow the golden influences of the Divine or Creator or whatever you choose to name it, then the Galactic Center can bring you messages and deeper insights if you open to it. If you have a planet near this point in your chart then you may find yourself knowing things and not knowing how you do know them. Sound familiar? This New Moon has a bit lighter energy than the previous serious beyond it all Scorpio one, Go out and find some play time and enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate. Bring on the joy and love. Be optimistic and spontaneous.
The New Moon in Sagittarius is also conjunct (5 degrees) Venus which is at 21degrees 14’. It is time for adventure, travel and being out there doing things you love to do. Venus in Sagittarius is now out of the rut of Scorpio where secretiveness rules and you really may not have gotten a straight answer from anyone, including your partner. Upbeat Venus now in Sagittarius brings you much more freedom to do things that are more exciting. Wild and crazy may be your mantra. Trekking through the mountains in the snow or booking a cruise may be just what you choose to do. Or even tapping into the spiritual mode is one of the influences. Sensual pleasures and desires are important at this time and may give you more insights into your spiritual goals since Sagittarius does rule spirituality and your visions. It also rules foreigners.
The Sagittarian New Moon also sits with Saturn in Sagittarius in 29 degrees and this makes the Sun, Moon, Saturn and Venus part of a stellium So since they are in Sagittarius then the focus is truly on those things that Sagittarius rules which I stated previously. Saturn in the last degree indicates a powerful time to finish up anything that has been sitting around waiting for closure or completion. This is one more chance to follow-through. It is trine (120 degrees) Uranus in Aries at 24 degrees. Take time to be more flexible in your actions. It may be a good time to make a commitment in a relationship. Or if just starting a relationship could end up as a long-term serious connection. It is a perfect combination of both steady and exciting energy. Chiron in Pisces is square (120 degrees) the New Moon and Saturn and Venus. What do you need to change to bring healing to yourself at this time? It is important that you look within to discover this. Are there past events that still bug you? What is hanging on that is keeping you stuck in the past? I know you are tired of me saying this, Now is the perfect time to just find that issue and clear it out so you can heal. You do not need it in the New Year. Watch that your emotions do not get out of control. No matter what goes on, it is time to open your heart to more love and acceptance as the intensity swirls around you. Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19, 2107. I will delve into this in the next post.
The period when Mercury in Sagittarius is retrograde is truly less than usual this time – only 19 days. Usually it can be up to 25 days. It goes stationary direct (moves forward again) on December 22. YIPPEE!!! I don’t how you are doing with the Mercury retrograde energy these past weeks but I have had enough. Move on Trickster!
May I suggest that Frankincense is the ideal oil to use with this New Moon. It is good for balance and it helps you go within and see your truth and how you relate. This is also good for supporting the immune system. A couple other oils that are worth using at this time are: geranium and sandalwood.
Thank you dear ones for reading my post and sharing it. Celebrate this season of Light with joy and peace. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and a Happy Holiday season to everyone else! Stay in the moment and see how beautiful life can be. Look for post on Full Moon at end of year! Many blessings! Until again. Love, Jan
It’s almost the start of a new month, dear ones. As I sit here and write about the current energy and various happenings I feel like I am living in an insane asylum. I know there is some kind of opening that has been occurring yet the energy continues to amp up much of the chaotic tendencies of those individuals who have no clue. And what can you do about it? Life is speeding by and many are so unaware of the truth that even if I spoke about a variety of insights that come to me, would you even care? Because what do I know? Something I read recently gave me a kind of…let me step back and ponder this…because it is so unreal yet I know it exists. You need to stay awake and alert if you get hunches or intuitive promptings. Life in the current space is taking on a new look. The New Moon in Scorpio is going to be an interesting time for many. Before I take a deeper look let’s see what the world is up to.
What is going on in this world and this US of A is just a reflection of your own insecurities, thoughts and feelings. And you look at me as if I have three heads. When was the last time you looked within to find the truth? Ouch. Ok, instead you are inundated with pedophiles in the news along with the sinking of the Hollywood ship. Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream says that depending on your ice cream choice can indicate that you are a racist. Did someone bump his head? It looks like the informant’s name in the Clinton probe has been released. Life is getting crazier by the minute. Oh well. Let’s all hide.
As the New Moon in Scorpio arrives it can be a time for new beginnings. The New Moon in Scorpio is at 26 degrees 19’ showing up at 6:42AM EST; 3:42AM PST; and 11:42AM GMT. The Sun is also in Scorpio at the same degree. Where is it going to take you? If you are ready to move take a leap…this a time to clear out the old junk of business, jobs, relationships, and projects no longer needed and reset the button. And do clear again. Once you do this the transforming effects can come through and put you out there in a new way. Are you ready to do this so new growth can come in wherever things have remained stagnant?
With the trees losing leaves and the dark nights coming early it is time to live with appreciation and more passionately. It is a time of dying to the old and living in a new way. It is similar to an alchemical process. Take what you have hidden deeply and transform it into gold! This is a good time to take the time and talk to your partner about how things are on the surface but also to take things to a deeper level of understanding and doing. This time may be sexual to some degree since Scorpio is quite the dark and sexy one.
You will have to watch how intense it may get in some parts of your life. Mars is at 16degrees Libra is just about square to Pluto is at 17degrees Capricorn and will be exact right after the New Moon. Since they are Traditional and Modern day rulers of Scorpio it may get hot. So just pay attention to what is happening around you. Keep your temper in check and if you have to discuss anything do tone it down a bit if you can. On the other hand what are you most fearful about? It is time to do what you are afraid to do and see what happens. Take the leap to freedom now no matter how scary it is. Make a decision!!! Since you are in the underground of the Scorpionic world as the New Moon tugs on you then it is time to keep your faith intact. Do it even when you cannot see what comes next. Then there are those of you who may just throw in the towel and not proceed forward with what you truly choose to experience and have wanted to do for a long time
As you are searching in the depths there is much support from Chiron in Pisces trining the New Moon in Scorpio. Chiron is the healing master and will give you the opportunity to take the connectedness to a new level since Pisces is all about that. Reach out to the higher power. Jupiter and Venus are both in earlier Scorpio trining Neptune in Pisces which is also very supportive of healing your wounds. As you are sitting in this nice feeling along comes Mr. Uranus in Aries quincunx (150degrees) the New Moon in Scorpio. Uh oh!! Have you been defending and reacting in your relationships? Well, Uranus is not about comfort zone living. Uranus may come along and take you right out of that place so you can remove those patterns that continue to plague your actions within your relationships.
And still in the picture is Saturn in Sagittarius square to Chiron in Pisces. This has been ongoing and will continue until December 17, 2017. Phew. Almost there!! This influence has been about individual and collective truths. It is difficult for many to give up their deep-seeded truths/beliefs which may not agree with another truth. The shadow is about resentments, escapism, and self-punishing behavior. The highest expression is letting go of the past. No the past is not repeated if you recognize your limits, your beliefs, your truths. It is also about realizing the need for healing and caring for self. Spiritually it is time to grow up. Are you ready to finally do this if you haven’t already done so?
New Moon in Scorpio will help you to find out exactly what you want and how to create/manifest it. Now is the time to stop giving away your power and reclaim it. What do you intend? What is most important to you and your life? This will certainly set in motion the change needed to clear, reset and transform. Have you ever said yes when you meant no then now is the time to align with your soul gifts. It is also time to speak your truth with love and an open heart. No holding back anymore!!! Just keep in mind what you wish to create!!!
Some essential oils for New Moon in Scorpio: Begamot- helps boost self-confidence after releasing stagnant feelings; Majoram- breaks down walls of the heart; and Lavender lets you break down walls and express your truth.
Thank you for reading. Please share if you will!!! It is going to be a truly big regenerative time in the upcoming few weeks. Stay in the moment and find what is most important to you so that energy can shift any changes to be made which will help you take that leap that you haven’t made yet. Many blessings and have a beautiful Thanksgiving for those who celebrate. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello dear ones. Oh my. What an interesting week that is flowing into the New Moon. How is life in your world? Are you the workaholic of old or are you a new millennial workaholic? Nothing fascinates me more than those who continue to excel at this material world conundrum. As I write this the moon is in Virgo so I guess someone wants me to bring up the work issues of the now. HA! Cute! Maybe it is time to take a breath and just be in the moment. What do you think? More work gets done with the flow than with a push. Of course, most likely anyone in charge has no knowledge of that since Material Girl is the answer. C’mon. Really?
I have been sitting and pondering life and relationships lately. It is an interesting topic and now that the new moon is soon to appear then things are going to shift a bit in unexpected ways. In the meantime let me just look at some worldly stuff for a moment before I move into the new moon. Saw that a valet for the Mandalay Bay who carried the “lone shooter’s” bags has disappeared and so has all the information that was written about him by a Hawaiian journalist. Now they say he has not been missing. Right? And a woman who questioned the reporting of an alphabet agency regarding Las Vegas has died. On another note- I am totally disturbed by the umpiring in both baseball championship series. The strike zone got much bigger. Weird. Autumn has been slow to come to my part of the northeast. Interesting! Does this mean that winter will show up earlier than usual? Something truly unusual- in 20 years science is saying individuals will get AI implants and that way you can control your home environment. All you need to think it and light turns off. Well, if everyone weren’t so crazed these days you may have already been able to do this without an implant. And what is with the Facebook game that encourages kids to go missing? Unbelievable.
And the Libra New Moon shows up on October 19, 2017 at 3:11pm EDT; 12:11pm PDT; and 7:11pm GMT in 26 degrees 35’. The Sun is at the same degree in Libra. So, what does this grand New Moon have to say? Well, it is saying that relationships are shifting with some unexpected things showing up since Uranus in Aries is exactly opposite to the New Moon in Libra. If you are stuck in an indecisive mode then Eris in Aries, Goddess of Discord, is also opposite the New Moon in Libra. She definitely may take you out of that place and even shift that people-pleasing side. Ah ha! How radical are you willing to be to get that relationship on track again? Think about it and get it moving so your relationships can be more harmonious and in balance. That is what the New Moon in Libra would like you to do. It is also saying to you that your reflection comes from another so if you see something you do not like, acknowledge and change it.
Since Uranus in Aries is obviously running part of the show you may wish to buckle your seat belts in case it rocks your world. And it loves to bring the unexpected to the mix. Just be prepared for who knows what. It is a changing scene and life shifts considerably. This could help the balance come about since New Moon in Libra sometimes needs to be shoved off the mark to regain equilibrium again. With both Eris and Uranus in Aries there may be some triggering of old wounds. If you react the same way as always then the pattern will continue to come around each time. How will you respond differently instead of creating drama? Watch your reaction instead of jumping into the melee of discordance. With opposing Uranus to the New Moon there may be rebellious acts from partners with a possible need for more freedom. Watch that a minor disagreement doesn’t turn into a major controversy. It helps that Saturn in Sagittarius is sextile the New Moon in Libra since it will bring about a more stable energy to the unexpectedness of Uranus. This will help you recognize the opportunities that may come forth and your patience will be rewarded.
The communicator Mercury is conjunct the New Moon thus combining intuition and logic. Your timing may be right on. This also adds charm and humor. Get the laughs going!!! On another note Venus in Libra is not aspected to the New Moon energy. This is asking whether you love yourself or are you expecting love to come only from others. Has the love within disappeared or has it been buried so deeply within? Venus is also square to Juno in Capricorn which tells you that something is blocking the way to intimacy. Is there a lack of understanding?
Jupiter just entered Scorpio on October 10, 2017 and with Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio conjoined you may wish to deepen the intimacy in partnerships for mutually empowering both of you. This combination will help you show your vulnerability and will help you take part in much deeper conversations which brings about more energy and closeness. Some may find this uncomfortable at first but it will lead to truth and understanding. Check out my post from last week regarding Jupiter in Scorpio and how it may affect your life in the coming year.
Even though there may be some unexpected energies abounding around you, Chiron in Pisces may help heal some old patterns since it is quincunx (150degrees) the New Moon. The bottomline of Pisces inconjunct Libra is that it says to you through healing the connection to the divine it will reflect back through your relationships.
The Fixed Star Spica is also conjunct the New Moon in Libra at 24 degrees in the Virgo constellation. Spica is very favorable for wealth and help from friends; some preferment. It is saying that you reap what you sow. Pay attention to what you are putting out there because it will show up in your life.
Keep in mind New Moons are all about new starts for the next month or a new project. By looking at past behaviors and patterns also it will give you an opportunity to do things in a new way. Stay in the moment with relationships and no matter what shows up be patient. Uranus in Aries plays a big part in this New Moon in Libra energy so watch how you react to any unexpected occurrences. And please cut down any risk-taking. Have a wonderful New Moon in Libra. Keep that balance present in relationships. Look for new ways to begin again in projects, jobs or love.
Those signs most intensely affected are: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn in degrees of 22-29. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) in those degrees then you may be affected. Birthdays are April 12-20; July 14-23; October 14-22; and January 12-20.
Thank you for reading. I would greatly appreciate if you would share. May the new moon bring you lots of joy and peace no matter what else goes on! Patience does work wonders. Be blessed. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello again dear ones. What an amazing shifting of energy as the Solar Eclipse is in the background. Many of you are feeling a bit dragged down especially if you have been giving too much to others without replenishing your own energy. How many of you refuse to acknowledge this thought? You know that it is true yet you continue to take no time for you and your own interests. Then it becomes the martyr syndrome. Right? Could it be that this keeps you from recognizing what you truly desire? What do you think? What do you feel? Don’t know because you haven’t ever discovered it. Maybe it is time you do.
Briefly- Did you know that nagalase enzyme protein was being added to vaccines? Doctors in Florida found out…and unfortunately they are dead. If you do not think the weather is being manipulated (I know you do not) then you need to do some research. This is not Mother Nature dear ones. I know just another conspiracy theory. Hurricanes do not come in threes. They happen one here; one there; and then somewhere else. I am asking you to wake up to what really is happening here because in the next months you are going to find it really difficult if you believe everything that is told to you by those running the world. This week is the tell all up until September 23. Then too, maybe you may choose to read the “Creature from Jekyll Island”. Enough said. Find your own truth. Good luck, dear ones.
This current New Moon energy is about giving and receiving. It is also about love and service. If it is going out one way only it is not love. Love is opening to receive also. Otherwise, it is totally out of balance and that is why you have not discovered your truth. And without the truth there is no soul growth and then love disappears. Why would you wish to leave love out? Oh, I know, because sometimes it triggers those deep wounds. Well, if that is the case then maybe it is time to look deeply and allow the healing to take place. That is what this NEW MOON in VIRGO is all about -reaching within for the gift(s) that is yours. This New Moon in Virgo takes place on September 20, 2017 at1:29 am EDT; 5:29am GMT; and 10:29pm PDT (September 19, 2017) in 27degrees 27’. The Sun is at the exact degree as the Moon. Chiron in Pisces is opposing the New Moon. That is why it is about healing yourself and the helping humanity. Chiron is the Wounded Healer. This New Moon says to you to stop covering up the pain of the deep wounds and begin to address how to heal them. If you shift the expectations slightly then you may feel more comfortable addressing the woundedness. Or would you prefer to continue to have the pain? Why? Too embarrassed to look at how you truly feel? Too ashamed that you wish you were perfect but are not? The Sun is opposite Chiron so you may feel less confident and possibly depressed. Walk through it or get help. One thing—Do not try to do the victim dance upon others.
Vesta is conjoined with the New Moon in Virgo. Vesta is saying just go do it. What is that you keep thinking about doing yet sit back and ignore it? What are you waiting for? Show others how to do what you want to do. Put your actions out there. Stop talking about it and lead the way. On the other hand Vesta in Virgo can create the hermit within. Ignore that feeling because you will do nothing. Is that what you desire? Vesta will help you if you want to go out and help others right now.
This New Moon is the first one in the cycle since the Solar Eclipse on August 21. And do you know what? If you started something in Eclipse energy then it may be good to take it to the next step. Think about how to do that and gather the ingredients to take a short leap with it. There are changing conditions with this New Moon since it is inconjunct (quincunx) Uranus in Aries. Are you having some difficulty moving that goal forward? Then this aspect says you may need to alter the plans a bit to keep it going. With the Sun in Virgo quincunx Uranus in Aries there may be a feeling of anxiety because you are picking up some kind of drama or an unexpected
event which may show up. So what kind of pain are you now feeling? Face it already because then it will help you move ahead. And more wounds are showing up with the Saturn in Sagittarius square to Chiron in Pisces. It is amazing how this all brings healing to the fore if you allow it to happen. But sometimes it just rolls on and on and you get tired of dealing with it. Why don’t you open to it and then you can reach out to others with unconditional love. Isn’t that what it is all about? On another note there is a Grand Trine between Pluto in Capricorn, Pallas Athene in Taurus and Mercury and Mars in Virgo. This can be a step to healing the Earth using visions and dreams. Mercury in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces which may create illusions around you. Use the magic of Mercury in its own sign to change your reality with the right words and thoughts. Bring your awareness to the mix and things can shift in a big way.
It is time to tune into your own gifts and helping others since Jupiter in Libra is opposing Uranus in Aries. Stop sitting there thinking negatively about you own ability to create and do something with the talents you have. It is time to take it to the next level and stop worrying about where the money is going to come from or how you are going to do it. This is all coming together and don’t let the opportunity which shows itself go by the wayside. It is also a time to honor the Divine Feminine and Masculine within.
As I was writing this post I took some time I was wandering in my garden with a friend. I haven’t been out to weed in a month and it is quite overgrown in places. She helped put me on track by taking a short time a weeded some places. Now, in my heart of hearts I have the incentive again to go out there and spend time seeing how lovely it is and making it a gem again.
As the New Moon in Virgo energy takes effect two days later dancing in the sun is the Fall Equinox on September 22, 2017 4:01pm EDT; 1:01am PDT and 8:01pm GMT. It falls in Libra so it is about getting relationships in balance. Funny thing, you have noticed they are a bit off, huh?
Relating with love, healing, balance and service are the main words to describe this New Moon in Virgo and Fall Equinox. Those more intensely affected are: Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius in late degrees (22-29) of the signs. Birthdays affected are: March 13-20; June 13-20; September 15-23; and December 13-20. Love and service are the keys.
For some further info I asked the Pages of Shustah cards to give some insight and 5 cards came up instead of 3. Here is what they said: The question or root of this New Moon is the Ouroboros– This is a snake with the tail in his mouth. It states that you are one with all. It is a circle of love. Love yourself so you can love others. Everyone is connected. Be there. The situation of the New Moon is told by 3 cards- Scorpio– Time to let any wounds go and rise up and be healed. Pisces- Open to the energy. Divine energy is flowing in. Open to it to clear the blocks. And Pisces is also unconditional love. Diamond- What is shining in your life? Or what has to be polished a bit more to bring it a shine? The outcome of this is The Pale Horse- This has a lot of power but something is bringing fear to you. If that is the case then the Pale Horse does protect. If you need to act swiftly then this helps you. Walk away if it no longer works.
Be blessed at the New Moon in Virgo and the Equinox. Thank you for reading and please share if you will. Stop hiding and get out there with love but keep the service and your relationships in balance. You can do it. There can be reconciliation or new romance. Stop the fear and leap. Until again. Love, Jan
SOLAR ECLIPSE New Moon in Leo, August 21, 2017- Breakthrough in a new way with passion and creativity
Oh my, the Solar Eclipse is coming. Run for the hills and hide your head in the sand. No, wait a minute; some of you are already doing this. Yes, dear ones, this is a major awakening that is happening and it is total from coast to coast of United States. A total Solar Eclipse hasn’t been seen here since February 25, 1979 and before then when it beamed across the USA coast to coast occurred on June 8, 1918. So in 99 years only two have occurred across the continental US. How many of you are ready to shift something in your life? It is going to be a wild ride for many. The New Moon Solar Eclipse is conjunct Regulus, a Fixed Star, associated with royalty and the kingly manner in the sign of Leo. In 2012 Regulus entered Virgo, the sign of the maiden. Let’s take a look at some other things and then go into the influences of the New Moon Solar Eclipse.
The epicenter of the Solar Eclipse is in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and since it was a part of the Civil War who knows what interesting turn of events may occur. The more I read and the more I ponder it looks like Charlottesville may have been contrived. Oh yes. Divide and conquer is the main theme here, dear ones, and if you fail to believe that then you need to go find that cave quickly. By the way, did you know that Whites were America’s first slaves? Of course, it has been removed from history books. In fact in a document in Virginia it says they are enslaved forever. Blacks as slaves came much later. And tearing down the Confederate monuments is a disgrace. On another note the Solar Eclipse is plunging parts of the country in total darkness. Well, if that isn’t a clue, I do not know what is!!! Are you ready to go with the darkness and give into the fear that is rumbling through this great land? Are you ready for the ultimate chaos that many thrive on? Open your eyes because you may be deceived as to who the dark really is and what it is bringing to your life. Only the Divine of your heart can bring you the breakthrough and truth and dissolve the fear. Reach within for your true joy and wake up. Enough said.
Are you still hanging onto past beliefs and attitudes? Are you stuck in a bubble of old habits that continue to taunt and poke at you? Is this the kind of life you choose? I know so many of you refuse to see the harness which keeps you from leaping. You came for a purpose and do you know what it is? What is the new direction that the Solar Eclipse wishes to take you? Too many questions you think. How else will you take that big leap if you refuse to recognize your hold on the past? Are you one of those who rather sit in the box and jump up and down with dismay when something happens in the world? Are you on your path of destiny? You tell me.
Well, the New Moon Solar Eclipse is trying to tell you something in a big way. Old habits die hard and it is time to release them. You chance to do so. Will you? Six months is the time it takes for the Solar Eclipse energy to move through the collective. It shows up in a regal fashion as I stated before. It arrives at 2:30pm EDT; 11:30am PDT; and 6:30pm GMT in 28degrees 52’ of Leo. It is conjunct Sun in Leo at the same degree. The North Node in Leo is a few degrees away and Mars is also conjoined with the Solar Eclipse New Moon. It is all about passion and creativity and a big rush of leadership.
This Leonine Solar Eclipse New Moon is a balance and integration of the masculine and feminine in the power of leadership in the world. Mars is the masculine here yet it is about being the open-hearted warrior and coming in a loving way. As I mentioned about releasing it is truly about being in the heart-felt moment and letting your heart guide you. The big statement is this…ego has to be in check.
In the first statement of this post I said you should be running for the hills. Well, in a collective sense it is true. If you are anti-President then you better start now to go because President Trump was born with Regulus and Mars rising in his chart. Much power is being shown so therefore his enemies will try to take him down. Or should I say continue to try to do him in. If you are on that bandwagon you may want to reconsider or just go find a cave. Seriously! You haven’t seen anything yet. No fear intended, just truth.
This is the time to plant the seeds which you wish to see come to fruition in the next 6 months. Will you do this? The past is dead, dear ones no matter how hard you try to convince yourself and hold on, it is gone. Let it go and move in a new direction. The power is present so you can make bold and exciting changes since Uranus in Aries is trine to the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo. How does it make you different than anyone else? Change something in your appearance or stand out in the crowd with a new attitude. Guess what? You may even find new interests to replace your old ones. On another note you may have to work a bit harder to keep those gains due to jealousy on the part of others because you are close to that ultimate truth. Keep your enthusiasm working and stand in your power even more. Envision the goal and move towards it with anticipation and excitement. Do you really care what others think about your intentions?
If you wish for the world to be a better place here is my suggestion – stop the chaos. This is totally out of kilter with energy of the Eclipse. Oh, it may bring upheaval if you choose that direction. Do understand that there is also the negative part of the New Moon Solar Eclipse due to the Grand Cross of Uranus and Eris in Aries, Venus and Ceres in Cancer, Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto opposite Ceres says that it is about the destruction of our planet and the feminine. This could bring up anger and grief and it is being brought out to help you release the past Use this energy to change your outlook; wake up to who you really are and stop getting pulled into the crap that the media and the deep state is creating. Use it for the good of all; otherwise the end result will be much to your dislike. Dear ones, this is no joke. For those of you who read this and say bunk is what it is…I do not care. Reality is heading for the toilet unless you stand in your power; come from your heart and recognize that good energy is about doing good things unless you are challenged. Then stand in your power even more and set things right. This is not about the President or what is going on in Hollywood. This is about you moving on your path. Those who rule the world do not wish for you to raise your consciousness ever. Got it?
Those affected more intensely are Leo, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio in degrees of 26-29 degrees. Also those affected are in 0-1 degrees of Virgo, Gemini, Pisces and Libra. Any of you with any personal planets at those degrees will also be affected. And if you do not have any planet there then look at the house that it falls in. (Will go more in depth in my monthly article at offthecuffe-zine.com for September).
Thank you for reading. Please share if you will. A big breakthrough can show up if you are paying attention. Take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself no matter how small it may be. Stay out of the fear and victim mode. It is time for a shift in your life. Will you allow it? Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse!!! Would love to hear from you in comments!. Until again. Love, Jan
So have you been stirred up with fear and depression as the Full Moon energy is leaving? Where have you been as you wandered through the last weeks? Some of you were hit with some darkness shaking up the dregs so new can be reborn. Now there is a new energy coming in which will take you on a ride that is upbeat and joyful. Could it be about heart? Yes, heart reins in the truth now and it brings in love. If you have been ignoring that loving place within that heart of yours now is the time to allow it to emerge from your depths to manifest your desires. I faced some darkness for a couple of hours and knew that it had to be so I could release the junk that held me down. And then I went back to Tapping again (EFT) and it made a total difference.
The news is so filled with drastic actions it makes me wish to not read anything but positive material and maybe just take long walks. I was appalled at the situation in Minneapolis where the policeman shot an Australian woman as she was reporting to his partner about a possible assault in the alley outside where she lived. Dig beyond the dirt. It is not what it seems. On another note: a senior member of Congress has stated that out of nowhere in a sudden way President Trump will be taken out. Wow. This country has hit the bottom. How many of you would go for that? No comment. The upcoming Solar Eclipse in August is sitting right on his ascendant. Anyway, soon they want to put chips in hundred dollar bills so they can track your money too. Life as we know it no longer exists. Little kids are becoming junkies. Yes, they are obsessed with phones too.
On July 21, 2017 Mercury conjoined the North Node in Leo. What kind of communication or interaction have you had? This is giving you a glimpse into the future. What was the energy like? Is it the kind you desire to have in the future or do you wish to let it go? This is the time to decide what you truly desire. Once you decide then it is good to communicate it with compassion and humility. Get it out there. You may be surprised what comes to you.
On a positive note the NEW MOON in LEO is coming to visit on July 23 2017 at 5:45 AM EDT; 2:45 AM PDT; and 9:45 AM GMT in 0 degrees 44’. The Sun is also in Leo at the same degree. What is it going to say to you? First of all it lightens the energy and says get your passion back on track; find that joyous point within yourself and you may wish to spread it to others; and reach down and find that creative piece that you have ignored for too long and get it out there and make it happen. How does that sound? Better than all that fear gunk, dear ones.
This is truly a time to rebirth yourself. Mars in Leo at 1 degree 52’ and conjoins the New Moon on July 26 exact at 4 degrees. It is time to bring your heart to any concern no matter how much fear shows up. The masculine Mars warrior is at the forefront of the energy. Your vitality, passion and motivation are in the mix taken to another level at this time. Use your heartfelt energy as things arise to help you wend your way through any situation. Mars helps to burn away the old paradigm of any expressions that are now not needed. Of course, some may show up as the negative Mars in Leo as the egocentric or bully. And then there are those of you who will go back to the childish ways. I suggest you stay in the heart.
Mars in Leo with the New Moon in Leo is about action, war, sex and lots of aggressiveness. Can you handle it? It can be truly positive and heart can be present. Yet, Mars can be fierce and just wants his own way. And since Mars squares Uranus, oh my, it brings a more erratic and explosive energy to this lovely heartfelt New Moon in Leo. So, where will you allow it to go in your life? You need to get all those deeply held desires which are ready to explode, but get them out in a safe environment. And keep them from becoming so intense that it becomes a danger to you. Watch impulsive actions because there may be shocks. Get yourself in a creative mode and work the energy this way.
Looks like a time of some kind of breakups since Uranus in Aries at 28 degrees is squaring the New Moon in Leo. Does not mean it definitely will occur just that the energy is saying make-up already or move on. And this also includes the basic family where some are more in a cult-like bubble as opposed to a family of all included. Some early trauma from childhood can pop up in your memory and maybe it is time to just recognize and let it go already. It is not an easy task but is recommended since it is interfering with your moving forward. And Uranus is saying be who you are, that unique self who is always true and if others disagree, that is their issue. This is not a time to fit in. The free heart speaks.
Some of you who have been in a childish mode for one reason or other have a challenge to work through it and get to your true self without bullying or trying to get your own way. Yet this New Moon conjunct Mars does bring you closer to those you consider family. On another hand there may be explosions in the domestic area and you feel like you are at war. Stop being provoked. Are you projecting your old behaviors or those that serve your higher purpose?
Where have you been limiting yourself? Jupiter in Libra continues to square Pluto in Capricorn and will bring out your fears, beliefs and desires and show this to you. Then you can look for another approach to anything that is occurring in your life. That brings on an exhilarating feeling. This is definitely time to transform who you are.
Chiron in Pisces is trine the New Moon in Leo and helps bring healing. Those who haven’t healed old wounds will sink into self-pity. And others who have will go the other direction and reach into the higher consciousness. If there is something you are stuck on, then dig it out and heal it. It is time to do that, dear ones.
Saturn is retrograde in Sagittarius until August 25, 2017 when it goes direct a few days after the Solar Eclipse. If fear has been an issue then Saturn may be trying to get you on track. There are some lessons that you may have learned in the retrograde period. This has been a time of regrouping and looking at anything that you may be developing. This way you can change anything that needs change before it goes direct and you move forward with desires. Any relevant issues which you have been facing now can be revamped and prepared for the next phase.
As the energy of the Solar Eclipse (2nd New Moon in Leo) arrives on August 21, 2017 there is another eclipse on August 7 (lunar Full Moon in Aquarius). Find the peace within your heart now; stay out of the doubts and fears; and allow the moment to take you forward to your desires. Life is changing in ways beyond our imagination which is bringing you what you desire. Do you recognize that? And these times of intense energy are dramatically transforming. If others tell you different then they are still back in a bubble of the past. You need to allow the freedom of your own heart to take you to the path of your soul purpose.
Those signs intensely affected and with any personal planets at these degrees: Taurus (Aries 27 – Taurus 5 degrees, Leo (Cancer 27-Leo 5 degrees) , Scorpio (Libra 27-Scorpio 5 degrees) and Aquarius (Capricorn 27-Aquarius 5 degrees). Birthdays: April 17- April 25; July 19-27; October 18-26; and January 16-24.
Keep those heartfelt thoughts flowing and stay in the moment. Thank you for reading, dear ones Don’t forget to set your intentions in the first 24 hours after the New Moon. Sending well wishes and blessings to you as the New Moon energy comes in. ”Don’t give into your fears, if you do you won’t be able to talk to your heart.” (Paolo Coelho) Check out offthecuffe-zine for an article about Saturn and fear. It is a great magazine. Until again. Love, Jan
The Summer Solstice is here as I sit and ponder the coming New Moon. The Solstice happened at 12:24 AM EDT right after midnight on June 21, 2017. Yes, some may have been celebrating a few hours earlier near the Pacific region and around the world at various times. And of course those in the Southern Hemisphere will be celebrating Winter Solstice. With the heat that is pounding the US I think I want to jump down to the Winter Solstice. Just a thought! As you read this probably a day or two after the longest day it still has the energy in effect with the New Moon in Cancer. The energy is about finding your true self. It is about going within and digging deep and loving who you are so that you are one with yourself. As it occurs you radiate the love out to the world and your life shifts. What a grand desire to implement. Imagine it!!! And with this coming shortly before the New Moon it is still within that energetic window. Beautiful it is.
Oh, I know I can go on about the world. But right now it is undergoing a madness that unnerves me. I notice the rudeness in others yet I stay in my moment and wish them well. All it tells me is that those in the Mainstream Media and those other Global types are really out of their minds with the darkness. So, I have no real interest at this time. There is only one worthy thing that took me back many years and that was the MI5 agent who confessed (he is dying) that the Crown definitely hired him to off the People’s Princess. You know who I mean, Diana. What a horror!! And before you say Snopes/Google doesn’t agree well there was an article in a media outlet NeonNettle in London which had the original news about the agent. If you remember she was alive in the car asking what happened. She had the goods on the Royals (must have been some dark and dank secrets) so she had to go. As for any other news at this time…saw an article about a couple who were Breatherians. They have a food-free lifestyle. They are using the pure energy around them. News must be limited these days for the Mainstream aka Fake News to be writing about this. And is Mr. Scalise alive or dead? On another note a curious happening…I guess someone does not like the fact that I have no newspaper delivered. It is so amazing that each day for the last 5 days I have received a paper. Never ordered it and when I called they were as perplexed as I was. So, now I need to take time to look through and see if I got a message in my papers. One never can tell.
Onward I go to the New Moon in Cancer. It arrives on June 23/24, 2017 at 10:30pm EDT; 7:30pm PDT; and 2:30am GMT (June 24) at 2 degrees 47’. The Sun is also in Cancer at the same degree. Each new moon is actually time for a new beginning where spirit of the Sun meets the body of the Moon. This New Moon in Cancer is intensely energized as a major turning point coming so soon after the Summer Solstice on June 20/21and still within that Solstice opening. It asks for you to reach within and find your true self. This is a time to create what you desire. Are you ready to manifest? Since the New Moon in Cancer is conjunct Mercury in Cancer it says to you to dig into your subconscious to find exactly what you desire to create. Be prepared since Chiron in very late Pisces is squaring (in conflict) the New Moon and opens the way to healing. Of course, that may indicate that old and ugly wounds may surface and you will want to just ignore them. Know that by facing what shows up from the core needs to be addressed, healed and then you may be able to assist others once it is looked at. But since Chiron will go retrograde it may still linger and pop up again further down the road. Just saying it is better to deal with anything now then wait until it gives you a punch. Got it? Good
Family togetherness goes well with the New Moon but there are some who may feel that you just do not belong anymore. It is time for compassion and nurturing with this New Moon in Cancer. Take time to breathe in the goodness and find nourishment and let your emotions rest. Remember this when the Chiron energy is you feel out of it. What emotional wound from the past continues to plague you? Are you insecure about certain factors? Once you dig deep and find the reason you may feel a bit off then you can move through it and go on to face the world and help humanity.
With Mars in Cancer and widely conjunct the New Moon in Cancer and squaring Jupiter in Libra and opposes Pluto in Capricorn is saying that someone may trigger you and then you react in a angry way. Just keep your cool no matter what. Watch out for emotional manipulation. You certainly have no reason to try that since it may just backfire. Keep that in mind. And in the background Uranus is late degrees of Aries stirring up more craziness and unexpected occurrences if it is touching one of your personal planets. Down the road on July 2, 2017 Mars opposes Pluto (thrills not!) which can make things ugly. No, you do not have to hide in the shelter just stay aware of how you respond to others. And then on July 17 (which I will go further into in another post) Mars in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries. That may bring much drama and chaos which results in unexpected and tumultuous events. Just observe for now.
Venus is in Taurus as the New Moon arrives. Since Venus is the ruler of Taurus it is a time of creativity, love and sensual moments, dance, art and your enhanced self-worth. Find the moments to enjoy yourself with others. It is right on my Sun as the New Moon occurs. Wonder where that will take me. Find it in your chart and you will know what part of your life will be enhanced with joyousness. What are you ready to express in your life?
Now is the time to take time for nurturing yourself and others. Take time to keep your emotions out of the muck and be compassionate as you walk your path. On the other hand, whatever shows up is trying to awaken you to the truth within. So drop the fear and just go with it without getting so emotionally out of kilter that you miss the reason it is occurring. The light is trying to arise within you. Let it flow out and bring you to something new. And if any volatile exchanges pop up between friends and family I say listen and watch your words. Remember the bottomline is to nurture and have compassion.
From Animal Powers I say the following: Dolphin showed up as I meditated on who chooses to send a message. Dolphin knows what is going on and what to do about it which makes them plugged into the Universal Mind. “Dolphin Spirit, please come to me help me be as playful and creative, As the sparkles upon the sea. Teach me about passion and joy. About being graceful and free. Show me how to breathe and go. With all my life’s ebb and flow.” He says to mix playfulness with intelligence once you take care of your survival needs. Dolphins are always loving each other. Thank you Dolphin!
Thank you for reading and I would love if you feel like commenting. Do share if you choose. No matter how crazed those around you get know that you can stay in your moment without them affecting you. Thanks to the New Moon and the Summer Solstice opening. Life is getting better than ever. There is a new article about the Lunar Nodes in offthecuffe-zine.com for July 2017. Enjoy the energy as it flows to you. Until again. Blessings and love, Jan
Changing times have become less than amusing. I have always found humor in many situations in my life and all around me I continue to see dour faces around me. If something changes does that indicate it is “bad”? If you have a disagreement with another individual does that say it is “bad” news and you refuse to deal with it? Do you know what –who cares? I do not say that you walk in disinterest yet that is what is happening in society today. You care about those revelations that the news brings to you and get all excited and adamant about what is right and what is not so right. You become someone else’s mouthpiece since you are living from the old paradigm. You have no caring for those around you and if you do it is as if you need to e immersed in their lives so you do not have to deal with your own. Why not just be present in your life and reach out in positive ways instead of controlling everything? Do you understand this? Why am I even talking about this? Jupiter in Libra is retrograde and still squaring Pluto in Capricorn so reaching out to help others is what this is about yet it says nothing about taking over everything that is not of your concern. And if it has come to be a concern due to other factors then get the help you need in assessing it and doing the best you can to resolve it.
What can I say about life today that comes at you daily from the news media? It is not what it seems at all. So what is the real story behind the Manchester incident? Was it done to distract from the Seth Rich story on Hannity? There are some saying this. In fact, nothing new in Seth Rich murder since someone seems to have said “do not say anything” to the family. And now Hannity is getting bashed and torn to pieces. Can you guess who might be behind this? Oh, dear, you do not believe me. Deep State has you all immersed in Trump-bashing. Go for it. It would be great if you would wake up already.
I am appalled at the disrespect that has arisen in this country of mine. Dear ones, what happened to you and the dignified behavior that was instilled in most? To me it is gone by the wayside because you believe everything that comes across your phone, your TV and everywhere else you hear it. Go right ahead and get pulled into zombieland. Your choice. To me everyone is a crybaby. Does it make a difference in your life? If it does, keep crying. No one cares. Life is as you choose it to be or have you forgotten? You are responsible for your life if you are an adult. What happened to that notion? The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon on May 10 said that no matter what you are facing in life you can still display freedom within and be an individual. This is still in motion for another 2 weeks. It didn’t say bashing others is the key.
New Moon in Gemini shows up on May 25, 2017 at 3:45PM EDT, 12:45PM PDT and 7:45PM GMT in 4degrees 47’. Sun is also at same degree in Gemini. All new moons are about newly planted seeds. So whatever you are doing or thinking about it is time to take a look at what your intentions are. This is a reminder to write out your goals/dreams (10 of them in a list). Since Gemini is about communication, social situations, learning, listening and teaching and curiosity then your intentions should be in one of those realms. Jan Spiller has a great book about this. And the best time to do it is within the first 8 hours after the new moon arrives.
This new moon has no major aspects to it. So what do you do with the energy? This Is a New Moon of not so deep emotional expression. It is a bit dark and there are shadows lurking. Will you see them? Probably not going to happen! How will you respond to someone who speaks the raw truth? Well, in my observation you will probably give it right back to them. So, dear ones, if you cannot handle the straight outright to the point truth, then say nothing or you will find yourself having to deal with it.
This is a time to look for new ways to do your projects, to gather information or anything else that you have plans to do. Will you be willing to start fresh again? The New Moon in Gemini falls in a cluster of stars called Hyades which is in the constellation Taurus. That is the only aspect that touches the New Moon. There can be some exploitation for power. Some obsessiveness may occur. Watch out for that!!! This is a time for courage and determination for new beginnings.
Since the New Moon in Gemini has to do with communication it will help you to express yourself in a good way and you will be able to hear what is being said without confusion. And if there has been confusion in the past with any interactions you can take another look at it and come to understanding. This is helped by Mercury in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces.
Another aspect occurring at New Moon time is Venus in Aries 19 degrees squaring Pluto in Capricorn at 19 degrees. Oh boy, this is a doozy in some ways. What is pushing you to have the same type of relationship as in the past? Or is the past love still influencing your current way of thinking? Are you feeling insecure or not loved and valued? Some of you may experience manipulative behavior or jealousy from partners or you may display this. It is time to transform this or it will break down negatively, create major tension and/or end. On the other hand sexual energy may erupt in a different way. It may be a bit dark and deeper than you expect. If you wish to transform your love life today you need to step back and breathe. Tell the Universe what you would like in your love life and take a breath. Call in your love and tell them how you feel. Take a breath. Or you can just write it down and meditate on your intentions with an open heart. Enough said. Life can bring you lots of enduring love if you open to it. How about some Tantric sex?
Venus also rules finances so it will help you to reevaluate and transform whatever needs to be done in your financial affairs. That is certainly a good thing. And when you are unsure as to the next step use the Mercury ruled New Moon to bring your dance to the light. Shake it up a bit and DANCE!!!!
The North Node danced into Leo on May 9, 2017. It was in Virgo for the last 18 1/2 months and was all about boundaries, commitment follow-through and your health. Virgo showed up in how productive you were. So now that it is in Leo it is asking you just how creative can you be. Will love prevail? There may be a revitalization of this concept. It is all about becoming your true self in the next 18 1/2 months. Take that creative venture and manifest a most glorious creation in the area that is your interest.
Those who are most intensely affected are the Sun signs/rising signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces 1-8 degrees. Birthdays involved are: May 21-May 28; August 23-30; November 23-30; and February 20-27.
Thank you all for reading and sharing if you will. No matter what is going on in the world you first have to be the authentic as you communicate and share. Times are truly changing and even though intensity may show up let the lightness of your heart shine through. Many articles of interest are in offthecuffe-zine.com magazine. Upcoming I will have a two-part article about lunar nodes. If you get a chance check it out. Many blessings for a terrific New Moon in Gemini! Until again. Love, Jan
