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
Spring and my flowers are finally blooming. As the New Moon is ready to descend upon us there are many who are out of sorts. Spring to me is a time of joy and renewal as the days get longer and our hearts are warmer. Or are they? Some of you continue to hold onto the past maybe redirecting your energy to things which are in need of revising or revamping since there are planets retrograde including Mercury. As I look out over the mountains I feel that new starts are around for those of you who pay attention. Then there are those of you who are in constant need to fixate on the news that the mainstream media suggests is real and you see only what they want you to see.
Just saw this- The Washington DC area will be having a exercise/drill scheduled for April 26 in case of terror attack. And Dale Earnhardt Jr. will retire at end of season. And it seems like Le Pen in France has had a mediocre run so who knows what will happen on May 7 when the election takes place. Everything is being recycled (nothing ever changes) everywhere it can be. Is that due to the retrograde motion of the planets? Were you aware that they want to build a pipeline through Syria into Europe and that is why they are destroying buildings and towns? So Guam just had a magnitude 5.0 earthquake at 4:20am. Did you hear about it today, Tuesday? Of course you did not. Move on. Nothing major going on. Back to your phone you go. Looks like the some employees at Merck are wishing to make a few statements which they will not…tied to MMR vaccine link to autism. Why would the news report the truth? And just one more thing is the Operation Gotham Shield which is taking place in the NJ/NY metro area. Practice in case there is a nuke attack. Wouldn’t we all be gone with the wind if that happened? Is there a False Flag on the docket maybe? Onward.
Here comes the New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 in 6 degrees 27’ at 8:16am EDT; 5:16am PDT; and 12:16pm GMT. There are no main aspects with this New Moon. The Sun is at the same degree in Taurus. You all know that Taurus loves money, the good things of life and sensual and other pleasures. Since the major aspects are missing then what is really going on? Well there are a couple of fixed stars that may bring out the hidden demon within or even a tendency to dictate. Sound familiar??? That is the fixed star energy that may show up or not. And if it does let it be revealed so that it can just move on. The influence lasts up until the next New Moon in Gemini on May 25. If you are looking to begin anew in some area the time until the 10th of May is when to start. This is also a time to address any darkness within and finally rid yourself of it since those Fixed Stars are helping you to do this.
The New Moon itself is about what you wish to spend time on or what you value in your life at this time. Do you enjoy what you already have? This New Moon can find you prancing around looking for more and more of whatever it is- beauty, money and good times with lots of pleasurable pursuits. Hey, wait a minute, don’t you have enough of it all or are you just going to keep spending because you are compensating for something that is not present in your life? In the positive sense Taurus New Moon is about being in the NOW. Taurus loves the NOW and that indicates once you take time to create the resources, take care of investments and to be grounded, then you feel good. You will then gravitate to beauty and good times but continue to stay present in the moment. It is time for you to feel good about what is going on in life and keep from being attached to the material world once all things are in order. Be calm and keep good thoughts going and if you have to pretend to stay in a good place or regarding your resources then do so. Believe you are rich and you are. Know that you attract what you think or did you forget?
This is a time to keep the distractions to a minimum otherwise you will be plodding through the gunk again and not flowing as the New Moon would like you to do. Watch out for getting too involved in the sensuality of the New Moon instead of thinking about how to be moving forward. You may have some luck now with real estate or family property.
Venus, ruler of Taurus, is just about into Aries again after retrograding back into Pisces. Venus is in the last degree of Pisces and ready to bolt into Aries on Friday April 28 early morning. So whatever you were doing while Venus was retrograding and now still moving forward in Pisces it is time to be ready to feel something different. Think about what you were doing while it has been in Pisces and it is now time to let it go and hope what you did will be perfect in the area you have been affected. Venus is still conjunct Chiron in Pisces and squaring Saturn in Sagittarius bringing a feeling or awareness of lack. It is time for you to be patient since some things continue to unfold as each day passes. Accept it as it is right now and then begin to fine tune. And with Venus coming into Aries it is time for a bit of a new dance. Venus is uncomfortable in feisty Aries since she likes to languish in the sensual nature of Taurus or the spiritual side of Pisces. Mars has been in sextile to Venus and will be that way until June 25. Mars has the upper hand in Gemini once Venus is back on April 28 in detriment in Aries. What action will you take at this time? You most likely will be more active than sitting and going within.
Is there anyone around who may be stubborn or will it be you? Mercury is still retrograde and conjunct Uranus in Aries which makes things a bit erratic especially in communication. What unusual thoughts are coming up? How radical are your words?
And speaking of retrograde—Pluto just went retrograde on April 21, 2017. What does that mean for the world and you? It is a time of internal house cleaning for you. Pluto retrograde in Capricorn is intense and wants you to let go and regenerate all. It will push you and prod you to do so. Are you ready? This is when you are to look at what you need or don’t need. Are you giving away your power? Pluto will show you. It is about any inner workings of you and what you can do to better yourself. Perhaps a detox would work well or taking a look at your inner self.
Those most intensely affected are birthdays; April 21- 29; July 26-August 3; October 27-November 4; and January 22-30. Signs/Rising affected more: Taurus 1-9 degrees; Leo 2-10 degrees; Scorpio 3-11degrees; and Aquarius 1-9 degrees. Any personal planets around 6 degrees 27’ will also be affected.
Pages of Shustah draw—The Divine Horse says you will get what you need and Black Cat says please but stay centered in case any negatives show up. And the Gnomes say your hard work will pay off.
Thank you for reading and sharing. Have an enjoyable New Moon in Taurus and let the darkness vanish. Keep yourself grounded no matter what the world energy is doing. And please stay in the moment since that is what Taurus moon likes. Many blessings! Check out the articles in offthecuffe-zine.com (May issue I wrote about lunar nodes). Until again. Love, Jan
Oh dear me. I have disturbed your phone time. Don’t get me wrong I have a phone too but do you know what? I use it for calling and some texting, that is it. Why not more? Phones are good for communicating when you are not with the individual; phones are good for texting a time to meet someone; phones are not a replacement for in-person communication. I really don’t care that you wish to use your phone, but soon you will see to what I am referring. Is that too harsh? As I did some research on this New Moon in Aries I found that you can dig deep into your core and take your power back. Don’t you wish to know who you are? Wouldn’t that be a good thing? It matters not what age you are, it is time to wake up already, dear ones. This is your Earth and it is in control of monsters of the deep. You just laughed at that, didn’t you? Ok. No big deal. You are totally controlled and you do not even recognize it. You have no money; you have no time; you are being used to do the dirty work. Get upset with me, I do not care. All I know that if you go within you can find that real part of you with New Moon in Aries.
By the way are you one of those individuals who lambast the President of the US of A? Just wondering! Are you not for the children of the world? Many are so into pedophilia (how dare I say this?) and if certain things happen within the country then many will go to jail. It is just one of the reasons there is so much dissension stirred up in the masses. Those who are involved will do anything to protect their kind. Dysfunctional is the word of the day. I am talking about child abuse and how this is a part of the plan along with trafficking.
And I ask you this? What is it within your own being is so fearful of change? Think for yourself already instead of being a robot. I pray that you wake up. Nothing, NOTHING is as it seems. Wake up now to the truth. You do not have to believe me…go find it out by doing research and communicating. Take time to meditate to find the joy in your heart and discover the true you If you have not already done so.
Oh, yes, the New Moon in Aries energy is coming in fast and furious. It arrives at 10:57pm EDT 7:57pm PDT Monday, March 27, 2017 and 3:57am GMT on March 28 in 7 degrees 37’. The New Moon is a cosmic reset; a new beginning for all. It is tempered by the Mars (the ruler of Aries) in Taurus sextile to Neptune in Pisces so there is romance and sensuality in the picture and on the other hand can lend some moral guidance. The New Moon tells you to step back before you take action and even use your intuitiveness in the process. You may tend to reign in your impulsiveness also at this time. Yet it is time to go out and do it with some pizzazz after some consideration. You still have to take the initiative to get that project started. This New Moon is asking about who you are and what you intend to do with it. Do you know what is within?
The New Moon in Aries is unafraid to work on his own and emotionally leans on no one. New Moon is looking for affection and will keep all in line and peaceful to find it but may get overwhelmed as it goes on. Along with the softer Mars energy the New Moon in Aries is conjunct retrograde Venus in Aries. You may put your calling before your relationship which may be the thing to do at this time. Aries is fiery and fearless. Aries chooses to go out in and assert its place in the world. Of course on the shadow end it is really selfish. Which do you choose? Your passion lives in Aries and so does your drive and your ability to just get it done. If you want confidence then Aries is the energy for you.
A good thing with the Moon in Aries conjunct Venus it is all about luxurious things. But look before you leap into going over the top since the retrograde of Venus advises against the purchase. And if there is something in your chart touched by this then you may very well have the abundance it is creating but it may be delayed. Only problem may be the manipulative others who show up at your doorstep. Watch for that! If you are looking for love you most likely get it with the right conditions.
Where is the New Moon in you natal blueprint? In mine it is opposite Neptune and a very wide conjunction to Venus in Aries. It tells me it is about creative endeavors and not practical stuff. Oh my…I have to be on top of any mathematical computations I have to do. Also, deceptions or backbiting from others is a possibility. Wonderful! Not. Maybe I shall hide and meditate the figures to appear on the forms.
Seriously, Venus retrograde just wants you to look at what is in front of you once again and then take action accordingly. With Venus retrograde conjunct the New Moon in Aries it could also mean for some of you a fated kind of love which brings something from a past life so you can work it out once and for all. Also, love may show up but for some reason there is a delay in the going forward with it. Have patience. It is going to happen.
I will reiterate that it is truly a time to acknowledge the love you have for yourself. It is about manifesting what you choose once you find the love within. So it is about you right now. If you are doing something that makes you unhappy then only that love will help you extract yourself from just doing anything and being your authentic self and loving what you do which then opens the way to manifesting your dreams. Just remember to take it a step at a time.
Another aspect at this time is Jupiter in Libra square to Pluto in Capricorn which pushes you to succeed in whichever way you choose to do so. But, be careful the energy can bring about ruthless actions and going for the gold in ways that are corrupt. So many planets in Aries opposing Jupiter also can make for expanded energy. And Mars in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn will definitely take you to where you choose to go, without a doubt.
Those Sun signs/Rising signs most intensely affected are: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn at 2 – 10 degrees. If you have personal planets (Sun, Mercury, Moon, Venus and Mars) at those degrees then the New Moon energy will bring intense flavor to any of those also. Birthdays affected more than others are: March 22-30; June 22-30; September 24-October 2; and December 22-December 30.
I pulled an Animal Powers card for the New Moon in Aries and the Cat appeared. The Cat is about confidence. How appropriate since Aries is in most cases very confident and self-assured. Cat needs no one else’s approval. Call on Cat to make adjustments to your plan. Cats do not give up when chasing their goals. Ask Cat to show you your time and purpose. Ask Cat to help with balance in life. Cat will show you how to go your own way. This is perfect for Aries New Moon.
Thank you for reading. Share if you will. Enjoy the NCAA Final Four for those who love basketball like me but do not let it take you over. Flow with the energy and if you need to clear anything now is the time to find out about you. Check out offthecuffe-zine.com where I have a monthly article along with other wonderful insights from others. It comes out around the first of each month. Also take a gander at the Spiritual Guidance Network/ proboards where I have a page. Do take a breath. Look for miracles along the way. 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.

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.

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!!!
I pulled an Animal Powers card and it is the Horse for strength. Horse will help you with stamina. The Horse meditation will help you move forward on your path.
“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. Your selfless service is an inspiration to all beings.”
Blessings for a very Happy New Year filled with peace, joy, love and good health and lots of cash coming to all. I am so grateful for every one of you who reads Cosmic Leaping. Thank you for you and all you do. Be your authentic self always. I will be back on Going Beyond Astrology again on January 4 at 9pm EST. mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ And check out the offthecuffe.zine.com where I wrote a new article for the January 2017 issue regarding Mercury retrograde and Hawk medicine. Keep your heart light. Until again. Love, Jan
What is happening in your life at present? Are you sitting in your life being grateful for all those things that have brought you to where you are today? Thanksgiving has always been a favorite of mine so it was truly a special time in my life. Are you still spellbound by the election chaos or are you still hidden away in the realm of the unspeakable or taboo? Yes, the Scorpio energy was quite intense to put it mildly and I am positive that many continue to sit in judgement of the characters involved in the never-ending saga of what now in the political arena? Since the New Moon shows up on Tuesday let’s take a quick look at what is going on otherwise.
Since I was away for a few days and wasn’t online I missed a few things. And in many of your minds you wonder what do you mean I wasn’t reading, talking or dancing on the Net? Yes, that is true. So, I just heard of the death of a revolutionary, Fidel Castro. I am only referring to the fact that he considered himself a revolutionary. No comment. Just saw this morning there was a shooting or stabbing at Ohio State University. It is sort of weird to me since I was so on the Ohio State bandwagon in their football game Saturday. And now this!!!! Guess what- heaven forbid I should stay off Facebook. Well, I had no way to get on so guess what…it was a wonderful feeling of not being boxed into the craziness that still hung about. Well, now that I am writing again I do feel refreshed. Let’s take a look at the New Moon and how it affects you.
This New Moon in Sagittarius arrives Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 7:18 AM EST, 4:18AM PST, and 12:18PM GMT in 7deg.42’. If you are looking for turning points then this is it. It is in a fire mutable sign which gives you an opportunity to leap forward if you choose to go there. How many of you will do so? Of course because Sagittarius is mutable it can bring an unpredictable influence to your leap. Have you been feeling stuck because you continue to be in the past? Since Neptune turned stationary direct on the South Node in Pisces has a major influence on it and the New Moon is square (90deg.) South node in Pisces (past) and North Node in Virgo (future). What that means is there may be things that show up that need to change. Oh no, did you read that correctly? Yes, changes are deemed necessary possibly from the past influences so that once and for all you can truly move forward on your spiritual path and towards your destiny. This is like a second chance since you didn’t do it previously. So what exactly are you continuing to hold onto? Is it old emotional wounds or are you holding grudges? What keeps you back there in the familiar cult that no longer serves your purpose? Have you let go of something lately-an old relationship, a belief, or a habit? Maybe you need to stop belaboring it and move forward since now is the time to do so.
Since Jupiter rules Sagittarius it says that being positive will reap you rewards. Go negative and they disappear again. So, what do you choose? It matters not what pops up in your life because Jupiter is sending out those optimistic vibes to help you walk through what turns up. And guess what it is saying stop the blame game and the frowns. How about some joy no matter what? Oh, sure, you say! Well, I am quite capable of frowning, but I have decided it does me no favors anymore. So, I laugh no matter what goes on if it is something so banal and insignificant. And yes, those of you who need to frown and be morose, does it get you the goal, the intention that you put out there? Do you find yourself living in the past continually? Do yourself a favor and let it go because the resistance will push you so far back that life will pass you by. And then what will you do? Stop feeling sorry for yourself already. Life is beautiful as you choose it to be.
The New Moon in Sagittarius is all about the higher mind, philosophy, adventure and going the distance. It is square (90deg) Neptune in Pisces which says there may be some confusion in your thinking. Maybe since Neptune is about imagination and so is Pisces you may wish to imagine what you really need. You can make your dreams happen if you put your intentions out there The Sun is conjunct the New Moon in Sagittarius and the following planets, Mercury and Saturn are also in the Jupiter-ruled sign of Sagittarius. Since Saturn is also near the New Moon it says that fact is in the picture. Why not just pay attention to the unfolding and open the door to the dream. Yes?
Juno, a major asteroid, is also conjunct the New Moon in Sagittarius. Juno is the goddess of partnership and marriage. What are you committed to in relationships, financial arrangements, business partnerships and the like? Juno is saying to you that Truth is important. Yes, you heard that right. This past year there has been much illusion and delusion as to what your Truth is and whether you are in integrity due to Neptune’s energy. So, have you been in your own Truth? Sagittarius is about knowing your Truth. Have you been living yours or have you been denying what it is that is true to your heart?
The Sun in Sagittarius is square Neptune on November 30 which is in the exact degree the Solar Eclipse took place on September 1. It is asking you to look at the past 3 months and see what is still in need of change in your life. How far have you moved forward? The next day on December 1 Chiron in Pisces turns in direct motion. It asks what have you healed during the retrograde phase? If you have, then big shifts will take place in your life that will be beyond your imagination. If you have not finished the healing of old wounds then Chiron direct will give you an opportunity to see clearly what you need to do.
And also continuing on is the Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn square which now is making a T-square with Jupiter in Libra. December is the beginning of the shifts that you have been avoiding. Pluto takes no prisoners but will give you the opportunity to transform or it will transform it for you. It will be much better if you do it yourself. The energy lasts until next September 2017 so if you have done nothing yet to clear, purge and find your Truth, now is the time. It is up to you to pay attention as I previously said as allow dissolution of the false premises, wrong thinking and being off-track. Now in the next month it is time to let go and find your own Truth. And remember what you believe is what you attract.
Thank you for reading and if you can share, I would appreciate it. More insights on on Going Beyond Astrology (mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/) Tuesday night 9pm EST. Hope you have time to listen. Also check out Off the Cuff E-zine December issue where I have an article about Exploring Pluto. Many blessings! Until again. Love, Jan
It is so appropriate in some ways that the New Moon will be in Scorpio tomorrow. The main question for all is to ask yourself -what are you fearful of expressing or enjoying? Scorpio brings that to you and you may not always see everything around any situation that may appear. How many of you take the leap to a new start? You can rise up to this New Moon which has a communication factor involved and can help to take you out of the root chakra to the crown chakra and bring in the higher consciousness that is available to you.
In the meantime there is so much fear-mongering that is being thrown at you daily through the mainstream media and some alternative sources? Is this the kind of energy you wish to take on and allow to rule your life? Believe me or not it is affecting everyone who is so entranced by the ongoing coverage of the upcoming turning point in American history-the next election of the American President. There has never been a time throughout this country’s history when there has been so much name-calling, undermining and chronic hate-spewed words. Many of you are caught up in this. Why? The more fear you have the more you fail to take the high road to your own spiritual depths through the Scorpio alchemy. Is it better to be the zombie who is ignoring the signs or your own person? Just asking! Don’t let this darkness of those who wish to control take over your energetic being. Be aware. Watch what you wish for now since the veils are thin and your wishes will manifest. Stay positive. Without love there is NOTHING. You heard me dear ones…NOTHING. If you have fear there is no LOVE. Another choice for you to make!!!
The New Moon in Scorpio arrives on Sunday, October 30, 2016 on the eve of Halloween. The veils are very thin. Watch what you put out there now. It is exact at 1:38pm EDT, 10:38am PDT, and 5:38pm GMT. The Sun and Moon are both in Scorpio at 7 degrees 43’. Where does it fall in your chart? What are your feelings? It falls in my 5th house and it truly is about experiencing a high in my life, creating a new project, romantic loving or going out and having fun. I am so ready!!! Also there can be some healing in my life since it is near my Chiron (the wounded healer).
As you begin this timeframe of new beginnings Scorpio wants you to rid yourself of the fears buried deep within and since it is conjunct Mercury in Scorpio also communication is important. Now you can open to a more heartfelt energy when you speak to others. Mercury is the messenger in your life who rules the mental energies. He shows us the patterns and connections. Since Neptune in Pisces is trine Mercury in Scorpio and the New Moon also it enhances your intuitive powers bringing more compassion and also opening a line to trust and forgiveness. Are you ready to let go that which is no longer part of your world? Are you ready to make a fresh start and let it take you to a better road forward? Fear will hold you back and Scorpio comes to you to say it is time to move on without the baggage. I have been saying this for many months so you can prepare yourself for this letting go. It may be just something small or it can be game-changing. That is yours to decide. It will make a big difference in the coming days. You cannot change others. It is also about taking nothing personal. Scorpio tends to hold on at times yet now is the time to finally let it go. That new beginning is within your reach as long as you keep lines of communication open between you and others who are important to you.
It is time with the New Moon to notice what is still hanging on that no longer fulfills your essence, supports your dream or takes you back into another time which needs release. I notice that many of you hang on so tightly to past issues, situations and habit patterns. Does it create a better life for you? Does it help you begin again? New Moons are very much about new starts wherever it falls in you natal blueprint. And the new beginning cannot fully take place if you live in other than the present time. If it aspects another planet in your chart or depending on what house it falls will tell you where the new start can take place and how it unfolds. It is a good thing…this New Moon in Scorpio which can be intense on some level yet there is a enveloping dreaminess which may just help you finally transmute whatever hangs on. Lighten up with love and you will see how magnificent your life shifts to a new level.
Remember this- If you gravitate to the madness of the world in the next couple of weeks then the energy needed to begin again in a new direction, relationship or wherever else it takes you will be less focused and you may still be in the same place. Get out of the craziness and see how shifting happens within. There is much authenticity, respect and deep intimate love here between the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. Let it appear by releasing the bondage of the past. You just may find that gold of the alchemical process appear in your life.
Some tidbits for the sun signs/rising signs—
Aries- It is a great time for a catharsis of some kind. Who or what do you need to let go?
Taurus- It may be time to say what you truly feel. Healing can take place now with communication.
Gemini- This is a great time to act on new ideas. Start a new health or work plan.
Cancer- What do you wish to create? Or you just may wish to have some fun. Do it.
Leo- What do you choose to change about self or your home? Be inspired and take some time for you,
Virgo- Good time to share thoughts and ideas and you may wish to listen also. Be receptive.
Libra- A great time for financial new starts by asking for what you want. Think of ways to manifest what you need.
Scorpio- Use your perceptive powers to help others. This is a time to accomplish more than you have been.
Sagittarius- An important insight may pop up in your life possibly in a dream or meditation. Access your inner wisdom.
Capricorn- This is a time to focus on what you would like in your life. It is time to do things differently.
Aquarius-If you are looking for new developments in career then now is the time. If you feel a need to start over, do so.
Pisces- Take that idea and let it fly out there no matter how big or small. Nurture the idea and you will be pleased at the outcome.
Will go more in depth with influences on my radio show on Tuesday at 9pm EDT -Going Beyond Astrology– http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ Thank you for reading and staying in the New Moon moment. This is another opportunity with the second new moon this month to put your wishes out there and know they will manifest if you stay positive. Keep yourself grounded no matter what the world energy is doing. Lots of shifting is happening. Get that idea out there. Until again. Love, Jan
Uh oh. How do we get past the power struggle that may show up with the New Moon in Libra who very much wants harmony to be present? How do we move through the conflicting energy when Pluto in Capricorn asks to shift something so you finally can move forward and Mars in Capricorn will be pushing for battle? Keep that in mind for a few minutes as I look at some other worldly stuff going on.
EBS sent out message yesterday which I saw on TV on my way to go to Yankees game. Then it is saying today the train crash in Hoboken was a drill. Absolutely ridiculous! The Hilary email scandal is getting hot and heavy. Keep your eyes open, dear ones, because this is not going away. But then again you may not even care about it. It is only this country that is in peril. Oh well. Just another day in the neighborhood! Seems like the a certain Infantry division of the Marines was called back the other day and North Carolina is on Alert. Who would have guessed that the rioters in Charlotte were bussed in? Wonders never cease in this debacle. And will the election take place. I have listened to and read about so many scenarios that those who have some inner sense or not say that it may not happen. And Russia continues to be in the limelight. Nothing further needs saying now. Wake up to who you are and life will continue on in so many good ways. Follow the crowd and nothing is promised. It is going to get really “hot’ out there soon. Please pay attention.
The New Moon is in Libra (both Sun and Moon are conjunct) on September 30/October 1, 2016 at 8:11 pm EDT, 5:11 pm PDT, and 12:11 am GMT in 8 degrees 15’. The New Moon is always about looking where you have come from and where you are going. Since it is in Libra as I said in the opening that it is about harmonious interaction and balance since Libra is about both. How do you balance your need for freedom and your wish for connection? Do you choose to control or are you compliant? Are you interested in interacting in a balanced co-creative way, tuned into the other individual? What you put out there is what you will get in return. And remember this is a Black Moon since the month has 2 new moons. Energy is a bit more intense than normal.
Libra is about the opposite side. Who you are and who the other individual is has Libra’s name on it. It is about coming together with everything and integrating the aspects of the selves that are different. If you have disowned parts of yourself then you will attract that to you in stronger measures than you may choose. What I am talking about is the patterns, the beliefs and any disharmony you may have. Yet on the other hand you may also repulse them. That is, of course, up to you.
Old Mars just went into Capricorn on September 27 and will square this New Moon. Mars in Capricorn is more disciplined and helps you go forward but it does not like the New Moon in Libra. It is looking for a fight. Ugh. And will you be the one to start it with your boss or your partner? Mars doesn’t let down. So watch your actions in the next couple of weeks. And also the transformer Pluto in Capricorn at 14 degrees is also squaring the New Moon in Libra. That is saying to you if you are trying to control or manipulate someone or a situation…or the other individual is doing it to you, look out for a major power struggle. If you don’t want a break up wherever it is touching your chart do stop the fighting. It may well be your shadow side which shows up here. Stop it before it creates chaos that is not to your liking.
Jupiter is conjunct the Sun and Moon in Libra. Remember, when Jupiter transits your ascendant you can easily…I mean very easily put on weight. This is especially true if Jupiter is hitting the natal ascendant, Sun, Moon, or Venus. Watch for overeating and sleeping too darn much. And of course, those drinks go down pretty easily right now for the next year. Keep an eye on your intake if you don’t want to see the expansion in your body.
It suggests you look at how you are relating and what is the role you tend to play in your intimate relationships. Get through some of those obstacles you keep putting up and walk through them as you see the truth. Maybe you can be kinder, more joyful and loving with this New Moon. And don’t forget to forgive too!!! Those already in a relationship can bring more optimistic interactions if you stay positive. Even those who are not in a relationship can intend one coming to you. Think of what you can offer to that relationship.
The New Moon is sextile Saturn in Sagittarius. Watch what you believe since it will have a big influence on your current place in life. A new paradigm can come through especially in your interactions with others. Will you go with it?
Sun was exactly conjunct Jupiter on September 26 and continues to be there as the New Moon takes place. Go within and let the spirit of the real you arise from the depths. Let go of blame. Compassion would be a great thing to show right now in an honest way. Let your horizons broaden at this time.
Even if you aren’t going to be feeling the effects of Jupiter’s transit of Libra in a big way, Jupiter is always benefits you in some way. You will still want to look to the house of your natal chart that Jupiter will be moving over to see where there’s potential for success and where you may be able to take advantage of the good vibes. If you are willing to take a chance in the romance arena in the next 2 weeks until the Full Moon then I suggest no matter what goes on, even if there is a bit of the power thing or otherwise, it will help you grow in a major way and that if good. So go out there and relate. Get out of the house and socialize and have some fun. It will be good for you in the long run.
Under any Pluto transit, we feel pressured to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. When Pluto is transiting retrograde, we are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, rigid emotions; a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning.
The final week of September wraps up with Pluto entering a direct phase, and a Libra New Moon. Both of these influences are a green light go ahead. After many highs and lows, and several months of snags, September ends on a high note. September 26 at 11:01am EDT is when Pluto went direct. It will start to move t things forward in your life. Pluto is in Capricorn which means that something outwardly tangible is coming from this transit. As Pluto is in action running just won’t do. Hopefully you have changed what needed to changed and alter your reactions. There may be other Pluto stuff coming at you but you will be able to move past if you did take the time to purge out the old behaviors and beliefs. Many of you may have faced difficult ordeals in the past 5 months.
And don’t forget to make your intentions clear. Write them out (10 at most) and look at them in the morning and at night. What are you looking to create in your life? New Moons energize those intentions and you never know what just might show up. If you have a Libra rising sign/ascendant then you need to watch for new opportunities to show up when Jupiter crosses the rising sign into the first house in your chart.
Most intensely affected are birthdays which are Aries, March 26- April 3; Cancer, June 24-July 1; Libra, September 26-October 3 and Capricorn, December 26-January 3.
Thank you for reading and celebrate you and your relationships at this New Moon in Libra. Check out my radio show Going beyond Astrology (on Spiritual Guidance Network)-Tuesday nights at 9pm EDT. There is also an archive. Stay in the moment! Until Again, Love, Jan
Wherever you are out there in the Universe I am sure you will find that nothing is as it seems. With the New Moon Solar Eclipse just about upon us life will sure get a bit more interesting even more so than it has been. How can that be, you ask. This is not fantasy time for many so you need to loosen up and find a way to look within and continue doing so until you find what is making you stay where you are. I am referring to taking a look at what is within and holding you back from purifying those thoughts, those feelings and those actions. Can it get clearer than that? Since the New Moon in Virgo is about purification. And it is also about healing aspects of you. Healing hands can help you. You may experience something magical.
Sun entered Virgo. It is time to clean out your body and mind. Organize and tidy up your life, in whatever ways it is a junk pile. And take stock of the ways you give service and make a contribution to the world around you. You may wish to pay more attention to details since this is what Virgo loves. This is a good time to for a goal. If it doesn’t work then it goes bye-bye, then you can reorganize and simplify whatever is left. Watch how you do this so you don’t dump something that may be useful to that goal. Since we are not perfect yet that is what Virgo implies. Perhaps you have been in a blindspot not seeing what is really in your world at this time. This may be due to that Neptune energy opposing the New Moon. You know that old junk I keep referring to for the past year well guess what you need to get rid of it or it will get you tangled up eventually if it hasn’t already done so.
With this New Moon in Virgo/ Solar Eclipse on September 1, 2016 you need to stop resisting or your life will continue in the same manner. Is that what you choose? This New Moon Solar Eclipse is the beginning of a new cycle which will go on for months so be ready to let go of what is holding you back. It takes place at 5:03am EDT, 2:03am PDT and 9:03am GMT. And those out in the Pacific it takes place right after midnight. Both Sun and Moon are in 9 degrees 21’ Virgo and it squares Saturn in Sagittarius and opposes Neptune in Pisces. This is an annular eclipse which only a narrow ring of the Sun is visible. Some things that Virgo rules in your daily life are physical health, hygiene, those who serve others and many other things, It is about the service you give to others and your daily habits/ routine, the working environment, pets. It rules accounting and finance and what you do with it in your daily life.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Wow. You choose to transform your life then start doing it instead of sitting there on the chair and lazing about. This is a time when it is easy to flow with finding daily routines in exercising, nutrition and anything like that which will benefit you in the long run. So what are you waiting for? Set your intentions to lose weight, change your diet and get everything back on track with your health and wellness. New Moon in Virgo wants you to take responsibility for this. One more thing-do you need to spend so much? Take charge of finances in your daily life also.
Aspecting the Solar Eclipse/New Moon is Saturn in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces and this has been in effect for some time now and it is exact again on September 10, 2016. Saturn is about practical matters and Neptune wants to take it up to a spiritual level. Since squares represent turning points this is a time to stay in our power and stop giving it away to those false ideas or any addictions. It is time to leave behind the guilt, the blame and the denial. In other words stop the BS that you tell yourself and wake up already without all the old patterns and junk you have convinced yourself to keep doing and thinking. As I said if you don’t do it then it will just keep you stuck and if that is what you choose, good luck. This is a time to get out of the stagnant waters of the childhood programming and conditioning from every facet of your life. Does it feel that good to put a blanket of false premises around you to protect you from reality? Think back to 1997 in September. That eclipse was at 9 degrees also. Note what was important to you back in that timeframe. What were you doing back then? Is something present now that reminds you of then or is pulling you to be on track with your soul purpose? This square is a giant turning point since it is right with the Solar Eclipse.
Oh my, I know you know what else is going on today, August 30. Yes, it’s that time again! Mercury goes retrograde for the next 3+ weeks. For up to a week before and after today, Mercury has been moving very slowly or stopped at this time. You may experience intensity, confusion, miscommunications, or feel like your progress is bogged down. I know I did for a brief moment. This usually is a good time to rethink, revise, and tie up old loose ends, rather than begin new ventures. You may find that new insights and information emerge later in the retrograde cycle that you didn’t anticipate, which can change the whole picture. Because of this, it is usually advised to avoid making final decisions during the retrograde and even up to 2 weeks after Mercury goes direct. However, it is an excellent time to do research in preparation for any major decisions. Those decisions are usually best put off until well after Mercury goes direct.
Since Mercury is retrograde, expect the unexpected, and leave lots of extra time when planning your schedule (to minimize any disruptions from delays and complications). For example today I was on my way back from an errand in late afternoon and there was a small school bus with flashing red lights sitting across the intersection at the stop sign. I waited about five minutes and another car came behind that bus…still doing nothing. Finally took off the flashing lights and continued to sit and as I passed –you will never know what he was doing…texting. Wow. Then he put the flashing reds on again as I got past. Right on dude! Stay flexible and learn to roll with the weirdness. Do some things that use your intuitive, creative mind during the retrograde.
Venus just entered Libra on August 29. This will bring about many interesting influences in relationships and close friendships. It is about harmony between you and others. It is sociable, quite creative and diplomatic. Charming ways soothe those around you and vice versa. Mercury also is conjunct Venus now and that means pleasant interactions and being gentle in your communication may bring you close to someone who is interesting to you whether business or personal. Some of you may delve more into your creativity and come up with something fantastic.
Mars square Lunar nodes August 29 -For a week or so your actions may be at cross purposes with your path. You might feel at odds with others or in the wrong place at the wrong time. On the other hand, this can be a time when being forced to take a temporary “detour” off your chosen path can bring an opportunity to gather new insights that can actually help you more, in the long run, than if you had stayed on the main path.
Those most intensely affected are Virgos between 5-12 degrees (August 28-September 3; Sagittarius between 5-12 degrees November 28- December 4; Pisces between 5-12 degrees February 23-March 1 and Gemini 5-12 degrees May 25-June 2. And any planets that may be around 9 degrees of those signs will also be affected.
