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
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.

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.
Get those good intentions out there and revise other things. Happy Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Virgo. Join me Tuesdays at 9pm EDT on Going Beyond Astrology http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air. September 6 show is about getting rid of unwanted beliefs. Thank you for reading. Blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
Hey everyone it’s time for another New Moon/Solar Eclipse. This is a new eclipse cycle that begins in March. As you approach this energy there are many happenings around us out there in mainstream land. Former First Lady Nancy Reagan has passed on. Veiled assassination threats are being hurled at Mr. Trump. Over 20 big companies paid no taxes. Mrs. Clinton is pretending the emails do not exist. And a few weeks ago the Russian Patriarch met with Pope Francis regarding a secret. So the Patriarch went off to Antarctica to see what??? Enough of the craziness of the last couple of weeks!
The NEW MOON/Solar Eclipse arrives Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at 8:54 PM EST, 5:54 PM PST and 1:54 AM GMT (Wednesday March 9, 2016) in 18deg. 55’ Pisces. This is a truly a major turning point for all of you. In some ways it is the final clearing out of the sludge in your life and allowing it to be taken away by a roaring river right into the ocean. On the other hand it is giving you the opportunity for a new beginning as most new moons do. With it having an extra push to it with the Solar Eclipse it will provide you with openings for moving forward, taking leaps and getting back on track. That’s in case you have wavered from the main road of your life.
This is the first of four eclipses this year. There are a Solar and Lunar in March which are 2 weeks apart and also a Solar and Lunar in September. All are on the Pisces/Virgo axis. Remember that Pisces represents the collective unconscious. It contains the tales, myths and stories of all life. Pisces is about compassion, a natural empath. Pisces feels what others feel.
The configuration at this New Moon in Pisces is a T-square which includes Saturn in Sagittarius squaring it and Jupiter in Virgo in opposition. This T-square opens you to other’s opinions, perspective, agendas and noise. What will you do with this? Will you let them drag you down as you see a new direction looming through the open door? Will you allow them the upper hand so they convince you sit back and forget about manifesting your dreams? Will you stand in your power and say that you know what you are doing so no one sways you? It is time to become your own guru. Along with these aspects are the long-standing Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn both trine (good aspect) Saturn and Jupiter which is quite favorable.
With the Sun and Moon conjunct in Pisces there is Chiron (the wounded healer) also right with them. With this New Moon /Solar Eclipse there are some endings. Things and people who no longer need to be in your life will leave. 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. Neptune is hanging in the background in a wide conjunction to the New Moon/Solar Eclipse. Is there confusion that has entered into an area of your life or is it just a dreamy time? You tell me.
You will know what you have to do when push comes to shove. Seriously, there is no turning back anymore no matter how many try to pull you back. Are you going to stop and let the boat capsize or are you going to let the waves take you on your journey to a land of new beginnings?
Since Pisces is a water sign there may be emotional issues and fantasies that play a big part at this time. It is filled with creative power that you will be amazed at what can surface from deep within. Tell me now before I go forward will you leap or choose to be a martyr? Think about it. That is also something that may come about if you just don’t pay attention and give in.
The energy around you can be chaotic and just like the ocean waves can bring a tsunami that knocks you about. Nothing is static it is always moving. Move about and let the craziness move by you or dive beneath the surface at high tide and find your way out of it. Once you find your way through this high tidal wave you can hone into your creative imagination which is a Pisces trait. Let the music rise within you or that painting find its way out there.
There is a wounded feeling coming through due to the Chiron energy involved. Chiron can show up with healing for you. The wound may be old and you may not recognize its presence and now it stares at you. It is time to face it. Then you can heal it and life changes for the better. It is not just your wound but also one of humanity. It also falls on the South Node of the Moon which may uncover old grief, sadness and ancient memories due to it being conjunct Chiron. As I have mentioned you need to finally release these burdens. And while you are at it please release any guilt, unworthiness, and old embedded thoughts about money and power.
At this time of the Solar Eclipse would be a good time to break from any addictive or poisonous relationships, Neptune could be gas-lighting you or Jupiter may be using flattery. Watch with whom you become enmeshed in relationships, business or otherwise. The veil between worlds is quite thin at this time.
Those most intensely affected are those who have birthdays around March 5- March 12; June 5-June 12; September 7-14 and December 5-12. Following are some tidbits for the SUN/rising signs and how the New Moon and Eclipse (6 month) affects you:
ARIES- Time to let go of any anger, sadness. You need to balance what is out of line with your inner and outer worlds. This will help to keep things going in work, service and health areas.
TAURUS- Gate to future opens. Why does it sound difficult? Get rid of hidden, fears and doubts. In the next 6 months friendships will deepen. You will look to bring service to humanity.
GEMINI–Turn over a new leaf for new beginnings to arrive. Embrace them and walk forward. You are being called to do your own thing. Shifts come across your career house. Be realistic.
CANCER-You need to integrate all items. It can be a clearing out cupboards or organizing at work. Health or daily routines are getting in way of possibilities. Be satisfied and efficient.
LEO-Changes come and you need to be ready also for transformation. Are you too responsible? Try to relax a little or a block shows up. Stop the doing and just be for now. Watch for confusion.
VIRGO–Possible new beginnings in relationships. Forgive and forget. Heal old wounds and be more assertive. You need to integrate you with home and loved ones. Is there someone new?
LIBRA—Are you ready to start a new health regime? Is there a new job or environment in the picture? If you think it then you get it. Transform your daily living. You need to rest and recoup.
SCORPIO—Let your intention be to create a more joyful life. What can you do to live more authentically? How about bringing more romance in your life? The time it is not about money.
SAGITTARIUS—What door are you closing on your home, family or past? You need to take charge and deal with what comes up. Positive opportunity comes if stay out an escape mode.
CAPRICORN—Time to create unity in your head and heal whatever needs healing. Meditation will help if you choose this. You seem to know what need to change and effectively let go.
AQUARIUS—What is going on with work and money? Time to turn over a new leaf and bring on the new beginning. Patience may be needed. What is going on beneath the surface? PISCES—Chapter ends and new start comes in. Align your intentions with the powerful energies. Write the down. Heal an old wound. Let go of suffering, Feel the joy and happiness.
This is a time to dream your vision into being. Plant that seed now. Thank you for reading and sharing. Be kind to yourselves as the new moon comes in. Have a wonderful week. Until again, Love, Jan
Listen to Going Beyond Astrology weekly on Tuesday nights at 9pm EST. Expanded info on the New moon/Solar Eclipse tonight. http://www.spiritualbistro.com/going-beyond-astrology.html
How are you, dear ones? Has the shifting that is taking place in our world having affecting your life in any way? I see the New Moon Solar Eclipse energy is already coming into play. The Ebola crisis is staring at you (get some nanosilver); a soldier was shot at the War Memorial in Ottawa and the Parliament was locked down; and students in southern Oregon cannot distribute copies of the Constitution. Wow! Fear and control are rampant and getting more so. As the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio comes into play watch so you aren’t thrown off balance. Wherever this New Moon Eclipse falls in your natal chart is where you will feel shifting and possible transforming effects.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs tomorrow, October 23, 2014 in 0 degrees 4’ Scorpio at 5:56pm EDT, 2:56pm PDT, and 10:56pm GMT. This is a no nonsense New Moon with the faces of Light and Dark squaring off. It is black and white; gray disappears. Have you yet acknowledged your baggage? How many of you are still resisting. A new moon gives us an opportunity for a new start in some part of your life. However, that start is held up on some level because the Solar Eclipse wishes you to purge all those things you have buried deep within. Until you do this letting go (I seem to be harping about this the last 6 months) life is stagnant and it especially get bogged down at this Solar Eclipse. So, I suggest you take a look at what it is that you are refusing to see within. Some interesting twists and turns certainly may appear in your life as the energy takes hold and pushes you down the road. It may be a big ouch if you have truly stamped your feet and said you refuse to budge.
Oh, I say, release those fears already. Old stuff may pop out of nowhere and your buttons will be pushed and how many of you will choose to shut down your feelings like a Scorpio can do at times or will you rise to the occasion and face it head on. Stay on the Light side even when you may feel trapped and wishing to escape. This partial Solar Eclipse will help you to dig deep and finally release all those false beliefs and old wounds. Now, remember something about this energy-it may not happen instantly-the release, that is.
Since Scorpio tends to stubbornness and burying feelings at times let the energy help you to flow with it no matter what comes up. Keep this in mind. No matter what is going on in your life stay in balance. This is very important due to the fact of this black and white effect. If you shove someone out of your life, it will be permanent. So, if you find yourself in an argument, discussion and you say something like this- I you are no longer a part of my life and I want you to leave. If you really mean that, look for that individual to be gone for good. This New Moon Solar Eclipse is very dramatic and since Scorpio can sting you can bet that is a done deal. Think before you say anything other than from a loving heart. Also, it is a time to find your path and move on it. This has nothing to do with anyone else’s path. If you are living your life for someone else, then life will change for you. If it isn’t your stuff, you are not responsible for it. Blame has no place in your life anymore. Keep that in mind. If you find yourself in a place which no longer serves your purpose in life (do you know what that is?) then you need to get back on track or the energy will give you no choice.
This Solar Eclipse is just about the same degree as it was 19 years ago in October. What was your dream back then? What was going on in your life? What has changed and how have you grown? Did you make the leap back then to bring you to this place today or are you still stuck in the muck of the past? It won’t be much longer until you see the shift. Any personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) or angles which are within 8 degrees of the New Moon degree will be intensely affected. I have the New Moon/Eclipse near my Chiron (wounded healer) which tells me that any old wound may come up for a healing if it hasn’t already done so. Looking forward to letting it go. It could be either with love or creativity.
Since the New Moon in Scorpio is about new beginnings and setting intentions are you ready to allow a turning point? Are you ready to find a way to let go of the old junk that has hindered your true self and kept you stuck. Let the path open to you and acknowledge it. This is about YOU -not anyone else’s path. Scorpio New Moon says you need to reach deep within the unconscious and face what you have suppressed and become aware of anything hidden. And guess what, once you bring it to the conscious mind you can actually change what you feared the most about your life, yourself or whatever it is that you have repressed. You have used distractions and addictions through your life to lock away these unconscious feelings—finally, you can change everything.
On a bright note, Venus is right on the Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse. This will help you look at the truth of any relationships. You see the true love as it stares at you. You have ignored it before. You cannot do that anymore. Well, I guess you can but it would make some of you more miserable than you have been. Honesty in communication is a keyword for relating. This is also about intimacy. Without sharing in your life, it is hollow. Old relationship wounds will surface and they are asking you to heal them once and for all.
Mercury goes direct on October 25 but it is still in the shadow through the first week of November. This is a time to be authentic in all communication. Games between you and anyone else are out. Walk your talk. Do you know how to reach love? Walk through those fears that pop up with this energy. I am waiting to hear how many of you are willing to take that big leap in the next few months. Love is.
Thank you so much for reading and many blessings to you. Stay in the moment and in balance no matter what goes on. Until again. Love, Jan
Update == what I said about Colloidal Silver and Ebola is not a good fix. Better to use high doses of Vitamin C since it is a virus and not bacteria.
Where are you heading on your path? The Lunar Eclipse occurred 2 weeks ago and the Grand Cross became exact again on April 23, 2014. The planets and signs involved were Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Libra all at 13 degrees. That squaring of planets is helping to push you out of your rut and into motion again to let go of the past. Oh no, not that again. You say you like the past. It’s ok to ponder for the things you learned and maybe enjoyed. Why hold on? Let it go already. Eclipses are about releasing yet bring about new beginnings. Things present themselves differently. This upcoming New Moon Solar Eclipse is just one opportunity to help you release that which no longer is an important part of your life. Many things are changing and have moved out of the past even though you may fail to see this presently. There is still much darkness hovering around and the deceptive qualities of those who are walking in the darkness continue to seep through. And Sabian symbol says that it is a decorated Christmas tree. Speaks of keeping the Light shining no matter what negatives appear around you.
The NEW MOON Solar Eclipse in Taurus at 2:14am EDT on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 is at 8 degrees 52’. Those of you who have planets between 4 and 12 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be more intensely affected. What does this New Moon say to you? Taurus is all about values. Taurus likes walking in nature and is very patient. Taurus until pushed will be quite accepting of all but pushed one step too far and that angry bull shows up. It happens only in extreme circumstances. Whatever you enjoy and appreciate is about Taurus. It can be mental, spiritual, physical or emotional. Where do you cling to something? Taurus tends to do that if out of balance. In your chart you can tell where this may happen. Tagore said,” Why did the flower fade? I clutched it to my heart in excess of feeling and crushed it. Why did the lamp go out? I shielded it with my cloak and it got no air.”
That is what this NEW MOON Solar Eclipse is about. Letting people and things go that no longer are a part of your life. The purpose has been served. Where it falls in your chart also indicates a place where you can be more productive beyond the material world. Are you fearful of losing loved ones or possessions? This New Moon leads you to be more established and secure on all planes of existence. A Taurus is very sensual in aspects of life. It likes the sensory world- to touch, to feel, to experience fully all that surrounds them. I think that is where the hugging the tree comes from. . How have you been holding up your ego? This is also a time of sacrificing your ego for something else. Openings come if you do this.
Mercury is conjunct the New Moon in Taurus and trines Pluto in Capricorn. This truly is about using words to heal. Yet many of you will be pulled into the mainstream news which is a form of conditioning and does work in a negative way. So words can be used many ways. Just watch for the brainwashing that comes out of the media which can flow so smoothly and affect you without you being aware. Put your good intentions out there now after the eclipse takes place. Mercury is helping you stay focused and without being overwhelmed. You may have brought back your power at the Grand Cross and also done some intention writing. This is the time to check on those intentions and use your imagination to bring them to you. With Neptune sextile (good) the New Moon there is a fantasy influence to this energy. Focus on being creative also since you may come up with a winner. Since Pluto is trine the New Moon Solar Eclipse it may also help you to transform your life through your values where it is in your chart without too much effort. If you are looking to improve your self-worth and need to release the negative, go for it now. It can be magical. Trust your gut feelings and watch who you choose as your guru these days.
In my own chart the New Moon is quincunx (inconjunct) to Neptune. I may find the opportunity to refine my higher vision and bring that truth to the world. Tells me to stop taking on too many things (Sun inconjunct Neptune). I cannot do everything for everyone. And It is worth waiting for if it is in line with my vision. Sun/Moon square Pluto is a time to purge old emotions and use it to create something which is powerful. Unusual concepts may arise and come to fruition. YAY!
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is connected to the Saros Cycle eclipses of 1995. What were you doing back then 19 years ago and where were you on your path? Are there any similar occurrences going on in your life? The energy of the Solar Eclipse will travel through much of the summer. A door may open in that timeframe and you may recognize it only if you pay attention. This can be a big kickstart for a new direction. Some relationships may have closed a chapter yet now are opening to deeper intimacy and true connection with material support. Integrity is very important here too! It is time to go beyond the before and be in the now. The old you has gone and whatever pain is still lingering and old wounds kept you stymied it is now time to let go and release them totally. Your power is waiting for you within. Detach and let go completely.
This is a Solar Eclipse New Moon about our stuff. What you own, desire, pine over and how it makes you feel. Whether it is a piece of art or an old porch; whether it is a stack of CDs that overtake your den or a comfy couch that everyone chooses to recline; that is your stuff. And what is it that makes you feel pleasure? That also is included in the mix. Jump into the senses because along with all the craziness of the other energies, this is who Taurus is. Endurance is the word and if you get bored with being in the moment, try it anyway. It may change your life.
Happy good luck to you on the path enjoying the moment. Many blessings and a big thank you to all who read this. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello dear ones. Are you still accepting the old paradigm? There are forces out there which will try to keep you in the dark about the reality of your existence. They are continually creating manmade laws to keep you attached to their perspectives, priorities and illusions. What about the Universal laws? Did they get thrown away totally? The control factor is getting more extreme and it will continue to do so until you face the truth of all the lies and misperceptions that have been drummed into you for the past century. The control is permeating all sections of your life and it is creating a deep struggle for those who continue to be In the Matrix thinking. This control is like a being under a microscope in the lab. Every part of your life is being monitored like a rat in a cage. Ouch! Is this the way life should be? Is this the way life is going to be? Is anyone going to make their voice heard? Have you had enough yet? The NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE is upon us and will begin the digging into the secrets, the scripts of old patterns in order for your real self to shine through.
The NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio occurs on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at 7:48am EST at 11 degrees 18 minutes. Scorpio SUN/Moon has great creative urges. It has executive abilities yet also can be a great missionary at sharing the good in the world. Oh, yes, they are powerful when in those upper positions and very secretive no matter what path they walk. Those who are Scorpio-ruled have strong sexual natures and may even like some flattery. It depends on how they use their extreme magnetism as to where the Scorpio type ends up in life.
What an intense, long-lasting energy which appears with this NEW MOON. It is quite transformational for everyone in different ways depending where it is in your chart. The energy effects are powerful and deep. Some may have disruptive energies and challenges with which to contend since the Pluto /Uranus square is right there with the NEW MOON. Most of you have more clearing of the deep patterns and old behaviors which are stuck within. There are very few of you who have achieved the clarity of purpose that this New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio may eventually bring to you. Don’t kid yourself; things in the next couple of years may be totally different in your life than what you are experiencing at this juncture. Get your act together and start thinking about what it is you need to do to become your true self and walking the path of wholeness.
Many things which no longer serve your needs may disappear completely from your life. And if it does so, it is part of the process to bring you back to your truth. Whether it be people, places, jobs, homes you will have to accept the energy of the action. Without this clearing out you will continue to walk in the old ways and the darkness will continue to influence your thoughts, emotions and physical being. Some of you will question this and say that your life is acceptable, who cares whether it is this way or that. Well, dear ones, you have a choice and if you choose to continue in the past ways of thinking, the illusions will continue to undermine your prosperity, your truth, your health and all good things which can be yours.
The controllers have been poisoning us through a GMOs and Chemtrails, prescription medication and other items of control and deception. There are those who create controversy, spew out hateful words and guess what, those who are so trying to establish a dark world soon will see their ducks come off the pond. The truth will out the lies. The Pluto and Uranus square which again was exact yesterday, November 1, 2013 continues to bring the upheaval around us and to many of you directly. This aspect will continue to be around for another year until late 2014 (I mistakenly indicated that it left us in mid-2014 in the last post). Walls continue to tumble down and the shift is bringing to you a new view, a feeling of freedom. Yet there are those of you who may be caught in its turmoil. Resistance is something you wish to avoid. Be true to your heartsong not to someone else’s needs and desires. Fearmongering is so blatant in this world today. Stay removed from it. Fear brings to you a state of submission. Do you wish to be a robot or a free spirit like you were intended to be? It is your choice, dear ones. Many in America are on the bandwagon out of fear. Many in the world live in fear and under control. Think Germany in the 1930s. You are going to have to decide soon where you wish to be.
This NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE is saying to you dig deep and clean up your act or it will be transformed for you with no input from you. The energy from this NEW MOON is also indicating spiritual warfare. Mars and Neptune were in close aspect with the Lunar Eclipse on the 18th of October so the lies and deception still carry on. Is there a revolt in the works by you the people in the next year? Since this eclipse takes place over a 3 hour plus period, then its energy can last a long time as I said earlier in the post. Will you come together with others so that your voices can be heard?
There is a powerful Yod aspect between Mars in Virgo sextile the New Moon in Scorpio and both inconjunct (150degrees) Uranus in Aries. Much energy has come out of the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on October 18. This Yod takes some of the scorpion sting away; well, just a little and can elevate the energy if you go with it. Mercury is still retrograde until November 10 but the shadow continues on another week or so after that. And when Mercury conjuncts the North Node will show you exactly where you are resistant to change. Ready?
Those of you most affected by this NEW MOON Solar Eclipse are Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. If you have any planets or points within 5 degrees either side of the eclipse degree then you will feel it more intensely. This falls in my 6th house which is about work and service in my daily life and it is right on my vertex. I realized that something important will take place in the next months that will change how I approach my work. I also see it on my Saturn in my Solar Return which indicates that I will have to take an an overabundance of work items.
Now you can take that deep breath and let the old stuff out and remember that your truth and heartsong are what really matters. It is being transformed so that you can be the true blue you. Transformation is coming up from the depths. Allow it. Claim it. Some things will end and others will be recreated. Also, a new beginning can take place.
Thank you all for reading and supporting this blog. I am so grateful. Walk in peace as the energy intensifies. Set your intentions. I send blessings to everyone. Until again, Love, Jan

NEW MOON in TAURUS/SOLAR ECLIPSE, May 9/10, 2013-A great big smile for those who let go, walking forward to and fro!
What a week this has been! How are you dear ones in the shadow of the eclipse? It descends upon us today with the New Moon in Taurus at 19 degrees. It takes place at 8:28pm EDT this evening May, 9/10, 2013. It begins late afternoon in Australia and moving over the Pacific. Hawaii will see it between 2:30 and 5 this afternoon. This is only partial and appears as a ring of fire. The Sun’s light is blocked out except for the ring around the edge of the moon. The major shift is ongoing and this is a gigantic trigger point for moving forward. Are you ready? My solar year began this morning. That is the time that the Sun is exactly the same place it was when I was born. What a great thing! New starts, fresh perspective and looking for the rain to go away! The intensity will be most for those born around the 16-22 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius or 6th -12th of May, August, November and February. All others will find it affecting certain parts of your life.
Many of you are out of balance at the present moment. Some people try to pull you into their unsteadiness and this creates a chaotic environment or vice versa. The New Moon in Taurus speaks to you about values and self-worth. It is also about art and beauty. Taurus is the earth itself in many ways digging into the ground and keeping the balance. Of course there can be a stubbornness that is a negative facet of the Taurus New Moon. Many of you are still resistant to any changes because you feel unworthy and fearful of not having enough money. Do you even value yourself? Do you deserve the good things that are out there waiting to manifest in your life? Watch for the dark ones to keep interfering. It is paramount that you pay attention so you aren’t blindsided.
Taurus is about seeing through the eye of the Bull and once it is open the Light (spiritual reality) can shine through it. (Bailey)
There are very few difficult aspects with the New Moon in Taurus. It is close to the South Node which means good from the past may show up or others may find themselves with a lot of negative happenings. That depends on your own chart. You will know soon if not immediately how this plays out. There are no easy trines to help us along. Mercury with Sun/Moon makes way for more clear communication.There is a stellium of planets (Mars, Mercury, Sun, and Moon in Taurus) and much frustration has been felt since the lunar eclipse full moon. What comes to mind is the Mars opposing Saturn and it continues to do so in the Eclipse/New Moon chart. What that says is that your energies may be stuck or you are just resisting as I stated previously. Are you letting your values interfere with your relationship? Meaning –do you put your own desire for money ahead of the good of the relationship? If you have grand talents and abilities it is time to use them but forget being a braggart about them. That will bring you down with this New Moon in Taurus. It is a time of using your gifts quietly. If you receive a chunk of money, watch what you do with it because it may disappear before you even think about using it for something. Frivolity! Some of you who pretend to be who you are not may find a downturn due to your lack of integrity. If you continue to walk in the material world and become a slave to it, then the mirrors will bring you distortions. The illusions will continue and the shake- up will be enormous. Why do that to yourself? You have what you need within you according to the Taurus meaning. You just have to dig for it, maybe in the grit and grime (shadows of the past), but it is there. Material forms only take you away from who you really are. Your heart has to be open. And once it is, many of your gifts and talents will emerge and your self-worth will grow. Now, some of you will think, I would like this and that. Go for it. But remember that there has to be a balance in order for it to be in your life.
Saturn in Scorpio may be affecting you in a way that you need to do some emotional healing on past wounds (this keeps coming up, doesn’t it?), old patterns and release the self-worth issues along with any self-confidence issues. How many of you have felt rejected in the past or continue to feel this way? This is something that can be healed now. Perhaps you really would have liked something and you just never asked because you were fearful of rejection. Wow! Next time, ask and it may be given to you. This was more intense with the lunar eclipse/Full Moon but is still hanging around. So get unstuck by using dancing, running, even drumming to help release this pent up energy. Or just go sit by a lake or stream or the ocean for that matter. Any physical activity will be helpful. Get rid of it now so you can begin to use the NEW MOON in TAURUS/Eclipse energy to set the path for the next 19 years. Yes, I said 19. What was going on in your life 19 years ago? That is something to keep in mind as this energy comes into effect. It may give you an idea as to where to take this energy once it arrives. Not that I say go back; just remember how you felt and what you put into action. That is what you will choose to do with this NEW MOON/Eclipse- plan for something new. Decide what you would like to manifest in your life, what direction you wish to go and put it into action now. Write it up, dream it, and keep all negativity at bay.
Since the New Moon in Taurus/Eclipse is about setting intentions long-term and short-term, here are some suggestions. In order for manifestation to take place. You need to use your conscious, subconscious and superconscious (soul mind) together. You are one with the Divine. From “Soul Psychology” comes a couple of thoughts. First of all you need to be detached from your prayer (intention) or manifestation yet. If you are attached, you will repel it. It is truly about letting go and letting God. As I have said many times, you need to stop trying to interfere with the intention. Once you let it go, that’s it. Out of your hands and it will come to you if you allow it to do so. A majority of you will continue to bring in negative thinking and that totally banishes it. If you intend something and then you begin to think about it again and throw in the ego, the harsh words or any other negative connotation to your intention, it vanishes. DONE. GONE. C’mon dear ones, this is so easy if you stay in balance. You know the ego loves to play its games and not allow anything new in your realm. Keep it in line. And there are times when your intention just doesn’t show up because it is not in the Divine Plan. Move on to something else and be grateful you have another kind of opportunity. Pray from the soul not the ego personality. Think about how magnificent your life is.
Thank you all for your support. Keep your balance no matter what wake up calls, shake ups that appear. Be authentic in your walk of life. This NEW MOON in Taurus/Eclipse can go either way. Sending you much love and many blessings. Have faith dear ones. Until again. Love, Jan
Hey, dear ones. I know many of you haven’t been smiling lately. Well, maybe it is time to do so. The NEW MOON in GEMINI at 0 degrees (which is also the Annular Solar Eclipse) and takes place on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 7:47pm EDT. Looks like the 747 is going to take off for new beginnings. It is time to put those intentions out there. Think of your intention, create the plan and get moving on it. This Solar Eclipse lasts between 2-3 hours which means its effects will be around for a few years and fading out in 2015. Life is shifting dramatically. The ducks are coming off the pond, as my dad used to say. I know I have been saying that for awhile now. Have you awakened or are you still stuck in those old habits, patterns and hanging on for dear life to that which is past? Many of you have no interest in moving forward and I see this daily in my interactions. Some of you are amused by the things I say and others just have no interest because burying your head in the sand is easier to do. Are you ready to leap yet? Looking forward to seeing you take the risk and knowing that it was worth it.
This is a mental New Moon since Gemini is the communicator and messenger. This could very well be about how and what you think and also what comes from this thinking. The 0 degree is definitely a new start. Basic stuff! Or you can go all the way back to the beginning and start again. This depends on your life and what is going on. Of course, there is another side to this New Moon Solar Eclipse that is a reminder. Your integrity is in question. Walking the path of truth is a theme song here. If you are off-track, I say to you. Find your way back to your truth now or the spiritual 2×4 is going to strike. No fear intended. Some of you are avoiding this truth and do you know what…it comes out. If there is fabrication or deception, I suggest you hide out in the mountains of the Himalayas. Well, not really, it will find you. This is a biggie. If you missed your turn in the road, then I suggest you get back on the road and find it now.
This eclipse takes no prisoners. It is potent and it is truly going to break down the walls you have built around you with old thinking patterns and beliefs. This is a time to STOP and think as to how many of you may be pretending and realize it no longer works. Who of you are just lollygagging through your life right now? That is going to stop too. Now, understand that you may choose to lay back and ponder your life and what the new beginning is. That works. I am speaking about just hanging out and pretending to walk your talk. Again remember it is about integrity. Is your thinking your own or are you just appeasing those around you so you don’t take the leap that is being presented to you? What do you really choose to do? Any hints coming to you? Are you actually paying attention? Blah, Blah, Blah. I know some of you may think right now that this is a bunch of hogwash. Well, it may be. Some of you know exactly what is coming down. Others are oblivious. You choose your own way to go not someone else’s. Their opinions are a control, right? Do any of you want to leap? Your Light within is yearning to come out and move through this dark world that you live in. Let it out. Be your truth and stop the pretense.
I bet many of you have found the last few weeks to be a bit shaky. Fuzzy thinking prevailed and so did some intense feelings. Of course, much of what has been going on is dependent on where this eclipse new moon falls in your chart.. Many lies are coming to light. Hidden motivations and distortions are being brought out. Watch how many news items can no longer be covered up anymore. And for goodness sakes stop feeling like a victim. Do something about it already if you feel that way. This is a time to let your ego rest so the truth can be revealed to you. And if you find yourself thinking negative, tell your ego to go to its room for now, and bring yourself back into balance. This is a right thinking time. Ponder. Meditate. Be impeccable with your word.
Venus went retrograde on May 15th. What does that mean for you? It stays in that motion until June 27th. Right now it is at 23 degrees in Gemini. It began in the shadow of the retrograde at 7 degrees Gemini and moves direct at 7 degrees Gemini. I keep mentioning integrity. Well, Venus started with Aldebaron (a fixed star—represents integrity) goes direct near Aldebaron. So, walk your talk and be in truth now. It is very important to do so. Venus retrograde brings to the table some reevaluation of relationships and how they affect your life. You need to communicate from your heart or it will be a tough ride for awhile. So, dear ones, open your hearts and get out of the dream. The dream is ok if you create a new beginning from it. Mars square the New Moon Eclipse makes for some stress times. That’s why integrity is important. Ok, I sound like a broken record. Hear what I am saying regarding your need for integrity. Things are shifting and in order to leap, you need to clear out the residue of old hurts and emotional wounds. Relate in a new way to those around you – family, friends, lovers, and in the workplace.
Who is most affected? Those of you who have birthdates or any planets in your chart from 25 degrees Taurus to 5 degrees Gemini will feel it more intensely. All of you need to keep yourself focused and pay attention so you aren’t blindsided by anyone’s action. One more thing-the New Moon Solar Eclipse is seen in places like Japan and Hong Kong, northern California, New Mexico, Colorado and ends in Texas. Will any of these places have big news stories And remember the NATO Summit is in Chicago over the eclipse!
Get ready for a big leap and know that some of you will be quite ready in the next months to begin anew. I send my blessings of joy to you so that wherever this time takes you that it brings you a new perspective. May all of you have an aha moment. Stay safe and until again. Love, Jan
