Happy New Year to one and all! Hope you are enjoying the new beginning in your life. Have you finally let the fears behind? Have you grabbed your pen, your paintbrush, your sketchbook to stir up the vision that you choose to create? It is now time. Yes, now!! Not yesterday or tomorrow. Life is quickly going by, the energy is intense and will get more so as the year progresses; so do it now. Did you start anything while Mercury was retrograde at the New Moon in Capricorn? You may have to reevaluate and revise as it just went direct Sunday, January 8, 2017. But it can also be the harvest time for some. Let’s take a look at a few worldly things and then I will talk on the Full Moon.
From Sputnik News: “A highly-anticipated declassified US intelligence report, aimed to prove that Russia supported Donald Trump, has turned out to be a huge embarrassment. The annex that contained factual material that was thought to provide evidence of RT influencing the American public was compiled in December 2012, right after the reelection of Barack Obama.” Yes, that is very true. I just read an article about how the future is being shaped right now in ways that would blow you away in a mind-altering way. What am I saying? Are you ready to deal with cyborgs? On another note it looks like Mr. Trump wishes to go all out about autism in children. That is the best news yet. Don’t worry you can go back to your phones. Never mind. Snow in Venice. Canals are frozen. Antarctica has a huge chunk of ice ready to let go. Did you hear about any of this? And one more thing- states are beginning to reject Common Core education. Hopefully the states that have not even considered doing so will wake up already. Are you paying attention at all or are you just stuck in media speak? Remember if you do not learn to think for yourself then where will it take you? You haven’t seen anything yet. And since today is another 111 portal, some may be surprised at the opening that arrives in the next 7 days. I refer to those who have been paying attention and working on themselves energetically. Enough said.
Full Moon in Cancer visits us on January 12, 2017 at 6:33 am EST; 3:33am PST and 11:33am GMT in 22 degrees 25’. The Sun is in Capricorn at the same degree. Capricorn is about the outside world. And Full Moon in Cancer is about the inner workings of the emotions. Are you feeling the energy building as the Full Moon approaches? It is getting intense now and emotionally volatile. It could go lots of different ways due to the presence of the Grand Square with Jupiter in Libra opposition Uranus in Aries/Eris (goddess of discord) which squares the Full Moon in Cancer and Sun in Capricorn. Are you feeling insecure at this time due to Pluto in Capricorn being involved also since it is conjunct the Sun? Cooperation and patience will be needed with this aspect. Pluto is opposite the Full Moon and it wants to transform it. This Full Moon is saying to you even if you are feeling insecure you need to find your independence. Yes, you read that right. Where will this Grand Square take you? How nice to have the lovely Uranus /Eris couple sitting in your home at this time. Maybe just lock them away somewhere. Just joking since I am sure they would not like that and would stir the pot even more since Uranus is about the unexpected and Eris loves the discord.
This is a time as with all Full Moons that is telling you that others may be a mirror to help you learn about your own behavior which helps with personal growth. Something may emerge which may call for compromise between partners. Along with this you may be emotionally sensitive.
At last you can feel instead of thinking. How wonderful is that? No thinking now. It is time to really go deep within and feel the inner being that is you. What does that heart of yours tell you? Do you go with the feelings that come to you and may feel overwhelming at times or will you allow the outer expanses of your daily living to overtake the feeling? You tell me what you choose. I say let the emotions rise; let the feelings come about and see what occurs.
This Full Moon may take you back to your childhood in regards to actions by parents, siblings and/or children involved. Do make sure you stay in balance if something occurs in your home or other setting that triggers a past event in your life from childhood or even past life memories.
In the meantime Mars (passion and drive) and Chiron (wounds) are both in Pisces trining the Full Moon in Cancer. Exciting it is. So if you are looking for the final release on those past patterns, fears and you name it (all those things that have been hanging on and I have talked about for months) then you just might have the gumption to take one final push and say bye to them. What a relief that will be if you can get on board and do it now. Whew. And if crying is part of the process just allow the tears to flow so the healing can take place.
This is an especially good time for looking at relationships and see if they are in balance. If not, then what actually may be causing it to have any disharmonious factors? Are your intentions and their intentions on the same page and how do they play into the whole energy pattern? Now is the time to really dig within and come up with a solution. Along with the Full Moon effect going on then there is Venus conjunct Neptune. This brings about a romantic essence to this moon energy. It may make you a bit dreamy about your relationship or may sweep you off your feet. It is highly intimate. Of course with everything else going on you may just pull back totally and not get involved right at this time. Will it be beautiful or just not going to be a part of your life anymore?
Since Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus in Aries you may find yourself wanting to have a good time and something comes into the mix to shift it. Are you rebelling now against something so that you can keep on doing what you want? It can open it all up to success if you allow it. Is there something unexpected that comes up and throws it all out the door? How will you react? Anyone who is more Uranian may find that you get major inspiration. On the other hand,
Saturn the taskmaster in Sagittarius helps steady the whole dynamic through respect and having discipline. But since Saturn is inconjunct the Full Moon you may feel a bit uncomfortable with the whole partnership angle even though Jupiter/Uranus is saying what issue. Just do it. Before I take a look at the Saturn influence in your life right now here are some tidbits about the Full Moon for the signs and rising signs:
Aries- In your 4th house of foundations– Engage in practical negotiations. Balance your career with your family and home and things will be ok.
Taurus- In your 3rd house of communication- Major changes may be afoot. Look at what improvements need to be made.
Gemini- In your 2nd house of money and resources-What are you willing to let go and transform?
Cancer- In your own sign/ first house of self tells you that you can put your needs to the forefront and also look at how you relate to others. Take care of you!!!
Leo- In your 12th house of Secrets the Full Moon says no matter what you say others are the mirrors of your soul. You may need to make changes that favor your well-being.
Virgo- In your 11th house of Friends and Community says that you may want to ask others to help you in your quest and stop doing it all yourself. You are still the artist.
Libra- In your 10th house of Career and make yourself visible to those important in your life. You do deserve all that comes to you so be open to it. Watch any power struggles.
Scorpio- In your 9th house of Higher Truth says to you that stop being insecure if you do not have the credentials you need. Some of your beliefs may truly shift. Dramatic time.
Sagittarius- In your 8th house of Deep Sharing-Create a healthy balance in your financial life. Throw out what you no longer need. Transform something in your life.
Capricorn- In your 7th house of Partnerships- Drama may show up. Release that which no longer works and then you can move into a relationship that does. Take your time.
Aquarius- In your 6th House of Work and Health- Time to address any work or health issues. You do gain emotional security from a regular routine.
Pisces- In your 5th House of Love and Creativity- Something may need to be realigned. Speak with your heart not your mind. Make changes starting now that make you happy.
The Sun signs/rising signs that are affected most intensely are Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries in17-25 degrees. Birthdays affected are: July 10-July 18; October 9-17; January 6-14 and April 6-14.
I pulled three Pages of Shustah cards for general influences of the Full Moon in Cancer. They are: (The Candle) which says to throw some light on the issue and ( Lord of Contemplation) says think before acting and (Divine Horse)you get what you need.

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
Full Moon is around the bend. It is about communication and maybe once and for all releasing old wounds regarding it. As the energy builds to the Full Moon truth is seeking you out since the past new moon. Have you allowed it in or are you going to resist seeing what it has in store for you? Did you get to see who people really are in the last weeks? So many openings are occurring yet many of you refuse to accept them. Is there something that you would rather be doing than enjoying the momentary lull in the madness that came from this past new moon? It is certainly up to you yet, I feel there is some kind of hesitance with many who continue to sit in the past and therefore nothing changes. Life will bring great joy if you truly change your belief. WILL YOU choose to do that? On the other hand are you willing to fight for what is rightfully the truth? Stay with the thought that you and your world may have to go up against those who are wishing to destroy your freedoms. Keep that in mind as you move through the energy that is getting more intense as the days go by and will shift considerably in the next couple of weeks.
Before I talk about the Full Moon in Gemini since the energy is changing that is why there have been so many unusual events occurring leading up to the election and continuing into the present. There have been earthquakes, asthma clouds (really?-no comment), and now here comes that Arctic blast of frigid air. The Full Moon is right on Mr. Trump’s Sun in Gemini/Moon in Sagittarius. That makes life very interesting for him in the next couple of weeks. Will there be no election or will someone totally different be placed in power? The Pennsylvania recount has been halted. Trump needs some bulletproof glass in front. I guess there will be an answer after the Electoral College meets on December 19 or even in the next few days. Of course, what happens in the meantime may be beyond your wildest imagination or maybe just a bone-chilling event. There is something going on so do pay attention so that you can take a leap without being caught up in the consequences of those who wish to control the world. Hopefully the White Hats are going to swoop in and take care of biz.
On Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 7:05pm EST, 4:05pm PST, and 12:05am GMT on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 the Full Moon arrives. It is in 7 degrees 42’ Gemini and the Sun is in the same degree in Sagittarius. It is saying to come from a spiritual perspective instead from your fear-based thinking. Are you still out there fighting or will you come from a place of balance to speak to those who are not thinking like you are? Gemini is about communication about hearing the truth since Sagittarius is about truth. So will you be able to discern the information that comes to you regarding this truth or will you block it out? The Full Moon is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius which is conjunct the Sun. Chiron in Pisces is squaring (90degrres) the Full Moon in Gemini/Sun in Sagittarius so it is also about seeing what truly is in your hearts which is the truth. Are those old emotional wounds drowning your dreams? Are you on track to see what you need to heal? My new business card will have an old saying which this Full Moon states boldly-Change your thinking, change your life. You may wish to join me in that mantra and write it down and hang it in view on your desk or fridge.
There may be so much information overload that you see or hear nothing. This is what you are using to distract yourself from knowing the truth of you. Why would you choose to do that? What are you failing to let go at this time? Are you still holding onto an old belief or thought pattern? Dig deeply to find out. As I said in the beginning it is about communication since Mercury rules Gemini and Mercury is in Capricorn catching up with Pluto as the Full Moon energy is in progress. Pluto and Mercury are conjunct also as it retrogrades on December 19. The Electoral College will be meeting then as I previously mentioned. It is also about possible sudden changes in relationships since you are shifting in frequency. It is about looking within and hearing the inner voice so that you may know your truth.
Have you been communicating with your heart or have you been being passive-aggressive? This is a time to watch what you say to yourself and to others because it may set off a deep wound which you have carried since childhood. Why not come from a place within which offers a bit of nurturing. If you cannot accept nurturing then you are still living in the wound. How do you choose to heal if you refuse to accept that? This Gemini Full Moon is also telling you to stop talking and start listening. Oh, now, wait a minute that says whoever is talking is talking too much and not letting others in on the conversation. If I may be a bit over the top asking but when was the last time you had a real conversation. You have been too immersed in your phone, your TV or social media. C’mon now. How about just being and see what happens? You may be surprised that there can be a lighthearted interaction which can be fun. Sorry to disturb you…go back to your phone and don’t be surprised when you suddenly find yourself not knowing what just happened. It is a time of peace, joy and love. Open up to it no matter what else is going on and see how good things arrive in your life.
The Gemini Full Moon does take part in a grand trine (favorable) with Mars in Aquarius and Jupiter in Libra. This is so nice for a change. Use it to your advantage especially if you have planets in the Air signs near these planets. Jupiter in Libra is about relationships. Where is the balance in your relationships? If you have Sun/Moon or rising in Libra, Aries or Capricorn-these signs desire lots of change. Can you say complete revamping of personal, family and work life? There may be an opportunity coming to you depending where it is in your natal blueprint. Something is flowing so go with it. On the other hand you still have to be observant and in balance since Jupiter is in a T-square with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. Otherwise it may get chaotic and you lose out. Along with these aspects guess what is coming up? Oh yes, Mercury is going retrograde on December 19. How kind of this trickster to show up right on that important day! Mercury is saying at that time to plan your next steps and pull back a bit and revise, revisit any part of your ongoing plans. More on Mercury retrograde in the next post.
The Full Moon in Gemini intensely affects those who have Sun/Moon and any personal planets (Mercury, Venus and Mars) in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces at 19- 26 degrees. If you do not have your natal chart go set one up on Astro.com. This is wake up time for many of you.
Pages of Shustah card pull for the Full Moon in Gemini- Lord of Benevolence/The card of Self/the Butterflies. Amazing!!! Surrender and call in the Spirit/Will you show up with ego or the true self / Change comes to help move forward
Thank you so much for reading and I wish you well as the changes come to everyone. Listen to your heart so that then you can change what needs shifting. Better you change it then outside energy does. Have a beautiful time and know that since today is 12/12 it is an important portal for many who wish to leap. Next opening is 12/21. Be well and many blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan

I will have an article on Mercury Retrograde in January’s e-zine. Check it out. Patricia Nixon does a great job with this online magazine.
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.

What a wild ride this has been the last few weeks! Are you one of those who have been knocked for a loop or have you been going with the flow and shifting where you need to do so? Life has not been what it seems and it continues on that particular track. I am appalled at the words and actions of those who failed to get their wish regarding the Presidential election. I see how others feel when I read Facebook periodically and realize that some drank the Kool-Aid. If you know history then you can understand what has been going on and WHY certain things have occurred. Darkness will try to put out the Light always. Are you swept away by the dark energy? Open you heart and you will know the truth always. Without the heart involved there is nothing. NOTHING! You got a taste of what this Full Moon will not bring but it does wish you to recognize what can happen if you allow it. I feel it is too early to say what will appear in the next months as the Inauguration nears. There was a forgotten child who ran against someone who knew what was at stake. Do you know what is being stated here? If you do then I applaud you and may the Divine bless you and those around you. As you journey through the next few days do remember and honor the Veterans who served this grand country throughout our history. Now let’s move onward to the Full Moon.
This Full Moon is a Supermoon. It is the closest in perigee (moon’s position to earth) since January 28 1948. Can you say intense? Well, it will be for some of you. As the Scorpio Sun aligns opposite the Moon in Taurus it will bring a treasure trove of goodies. It arrives on Monday, November 14, 2016 in 22 degrees 37’ at 8:52am EST, 5:52am PST and 1:52 GMT. Since Scorpio Sun is about hidden or secret matters, sexual stuff and power-seems as if, yes, power has been the word of the day lately. Who has it, gets it or gives it up. That is truly Scorpio energy. It says it will die to get what it wants in the sexual arena whether in love or lust. Black Moon Lilith is conjunct the Sun and also opposes the Moon. Oh no, sounds like ghosts of times past are still hanging about your deepest mind. It too can indicate a challenge to the establishment in your life or in the current influences going on in the world. Interesting how it already began with the election in the mundane chart. Both Taurus and Scorpio are “fixed” signs. They are persevering, and capable of commitment on a high level. Both jump into the sexual experience. Do you know what Taurus loves-to be touched and to touch? Scorpio is filled with passion and will go with the intimacy but it has to trust first.
The Full Moon in Taurus brings a bit more simplicity and some stability. Are you looking for more security? Then Full Moon in Taurus is listening.Since Taurus is ruled by Venus it is the creativity, arts and love. This is a time to follow your senses-tasting the good wine, listening to music/dancing, looking at the beauty of nature or your beloved, smelling the roses. It is time to take a breath and indulge yourself. Jump into the sensory part of your life. How about giving up control and surrendering to the moment…right now. Sounds good to me! Taurus is patient and will wait forever for everything to unfold as it is deemed. Now, I know there is a negative side to a Taurus energy which is resistance to change and indolent. That comes when one is out of balance. Scorpio has the negatives of jealousy and being secretive with a control factor thrown in.
Since I did mention Scorpio is about power then with Pluto in Capricorn trine Full Moon in Taurus you may consider giving up the power play in your life and stop living in the past or getting bogged down on your future treadmill. It is time to let go and stay in that moment that I keep bringing up the past few months. Now is the time to just be, dear ones. Enjoy what your body chooses and go have some fun. Oh, I know the crazies out there will be creating the doomsday scenario because fear always wants a part of your life. Well, for once, go love the Earth and love yourself. If you are looking for being detached at the moment don’t bet on it. Since it is a Supermoon it may be quite emotional for you.
This Full Moon in Taurus is all about the union of Spirit and matter. As I have said so many times through the last months now is the time that old beliefs are coming up so you can clear them not outside or in others, but within you. Everything is within you. You are being transformed. Acknowledge and embrace the feelings within. Neptune in Pisces is sextile this Full Moon. Also, the Full Moon in Taurus at this time in your life asks you are you on track, do you know your truth, and are you following the Divine within? If not, then it is time to see how it can help you awaken to that fullest potential which has been nagging at you lately. It is time to take that next step. It gets no better than this. Open to the clarity that shows up.
Taurus is not getting pulled into the fear-mongering energy. It just refuses. All Taurus wants is some comfort and to nurture self. Will your bills be paid and will you have the food on the table? That is a Taurus. If you follow the Full Moon it is exalted in Taurus. It loves the pleasures of the home and will do what has to be done to have that. As you are enjoying the home life you may wish to organize your finances. A more practical and conservative approach may be what you need.
Since Jupiter in Libra forms a T-square with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries there may be some confusion and difficulty in relationships since you don’t wish someone telling you what to do. Or in your workplace it can bring dissension. It is time to let go of all the junk that you continue to carry around from the past and feel the freedom that it brings once you do.
Anyone with Taurus (Sun, Moon and Ascendant) close to the 22 Degrees Taurus will feel this even more powerfully. Also being affected will be Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius from 18-25 degrees. If you have any personal planets also near the degree then you will also be affected in the house it falls.
I will be sharing more info regarding the Full Moon In Taurus on my radio show Going Beyond Astrology (SGN) on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 9pm EST. Will look at how it is affecting the signs and also some insights on some other interesting items. http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/ Hope you can tune in. Thank you for reading and for taking steps forward. Keep getting rid of the old beliefs and see how much clarity you have. Blessings to all. 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
FULL MOON in Aries, October 15/16 2016-Will you resist or flow with the changes and unexpected chaos?
With the Full Moon in Aries coming up later on tonight if you are looking for drama you just may get it. It might be a good idea to reconnect your heart and mind. Stand in your truth as you also stand up for others reconciling the balance of opposites. Onward!!
Here we go again. Life in this USA is getting crazier by the moment. Nothing seems to stand in the way of the candidates putting on a reality show of disdain, name-calling, accusations, lies, and any other thing you can think of. Is this really happening or have I been transported to another place in the universe? What a joke!! If you think this is weird then wait until you see everything that is coming to our grand land. And the joke is on you!!! Fear-mongering by the mainstream media is so boring and ridiculous. How many of you actually believe them? If you do, wow, I missed something in the last years. Dear ones, I am asking you to wake up because life will not be the same if you allow this charade to continue. And I am not talking about the mundane that may infiltrate your daily living. I am speaking of your freedom. Those in charge are desperate and have begun to come apart at the seams. So what can you do to bring back a real country of true values, spirituality and support for you? Enough said. Please wake up or it may shake you awake.
The Full Moon in Aries is upon us. And it is about bringing the harmony back into your life. Of course there are many aspects which will affect that process. Full Moon in Aries and Sun in Libra are exact on Sunday, October 16, 2016 at 12:23 am EDT; 9:23 pm PDT (October 15); and 4:23 am GMT in 23 degrees 14’. This Aries Full Moon is conjunct Uranus in Aries (22 degrees 28’ retrograde) and Eris. And these two energies combined with this Full Moon say change is needed in a big way. Aries is always about new beginnings and warrior-like tendencies if you choose to look at in a basic way.
And now as Eris a dwarf star comes into the picture along with Uranus, the intensity is in your face. It is imperative that you and those around you know the truth as to what is going on with the world. Eris is a feminine type who is Mars’ (ruler of Aries) sister and the Goddess of discord. But she really is looking for change and reform. Eris was discovered in 2003. And guess what Eris says the feminine within has a right to be and not be subjugated to others for their benefit or pleasure. If rage shows up Eris says hey, it is part of the inner you and in balance; it is there for a reason.
Along with the need for change it is about honoring all kinds of life forms. On the opposite side there is Libra Sun conjunct Haumea. Libra is about being true to who you are and also respecting others around you. Libra is also about balance and harmonious interactions. Haumea is looking for spiritual understanding within and with others and has a sense for a type of knowing, and is about celebrating the Divine. It may bring us back to being real women and real men again. The fashion scene is boring as anything and the pornographic talk and all the rest of what is going on soon will be in for a rude awakening. Of course there are always those who will try to create more of the same and the same and coming to your life soon the world will find a new consciousness because it no longer works and the energy is so far out of alignment.
With the Full Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries this says there is rebel energy present. The Full Moon is definitely chaotic, electric and quite crazy. Oh, do you really need this? Well, some do. And you may see those around you acting out…well, guess what…they may just being their true selves. Well, they can be if they choose!!! Right? It is not a good time to suppress any anger. So express yourself. Also, it is quite a passionate Full Moon so it is either good or not so good for relationships. You choose the way it is. This is a time to see you in the other and vice versa.On another note the Full Moon can show up with unexpected changes which may not be to your liking. It could also be a disrupter in a relationship or take it in a different direction. Will you resist the changes that may come about or will you give it a chance to take you to another way forward? That is definitely up to you.
Another aspect that is affecting the energy of the Full Moon in Aries is Pluto in Capricorn which is at 16 degrees Capricorn and coming on the tail of the Full Moon in a couple of days is Mars in Capricorn catching up with Pluto on October 19.This is a volatile energy and can be used for changing your life or destroying it. Is there conflict in your life? Are you creating it or is someone else doing so? It is a tension of opposites and it is time to be your truth and come from your heart. Oh one positive thought…Venus enters Sagittarius on the 18th so there may be lighthearted romance in the air.
The most intensely affected are the following birthdays: Libra/October 11-18; Capricorn/January 9-16; Aries/April 10-17; and Cancer/July 10-17. If you have planets at or near the degrees affected in those signs then you will also feel the intensity in some way. A few thoughts at the Full Moon for the Signs/Rising Signs-
Aries-Are others creating chaos? Lots of shaking going on. Take a walk or get a massage. Is there lesson?
Taurus- Whatever surfaces from your inner workings sit with it and gently let it go. Let the shifting within happen.
Gemini-What can you do in a different way? What you want to do and what you ought to do is the question. BE true to you is the answer.
Cancer- Changes may appear in what you do for a living. In the long term it will work if you stay grounded. Think before acting.
Leo- If your beliefs are restricting you then maybe you need to challenge them and let go. Someone may say something and you see things differently.
Virgo- If you have any unhealthy habits or dependency then something will disrupt the flow. You will feel the power within if you focus on talents.
Libra- Will you allow other’s behavior to affect you? Some positive developments may occur and if so keep moving forward.
Scorpio-What can you change in your health or work life? It will not be good to rush aimlessly forward. Take a breath and nourish your inner self.
Sagittarius- How have you been expressing yourself lately? Let go of things that are not yours to carry. Is there a new direction on the table? Dare to be different.
Capricorn- What from past shows up? Disrupting forces in home or family area. Stop trying to keep things the way they are. Don’t let the upsets keep you off course.
Aquarius- Time to shift thinking and see things from different viewpoint. Is a habitual response holding you back? Let go of it and feel the freedom. What are you waiting for?
Pisces- Flexibility is the keyword this time around. Be detached no matter what shows up. House of Money/Finance are in the limelight. Break free from old thinking.
Full Moon in Aries will definitely change something in your life. It is a Supermoon and it brings unexpected things to the forefront. Thank you for reading and best wishes and blessings for whatever comes in. Tune in on Tuesdays to my radio show Going Beyond Astrology at 9pm EDT on SGN. Keep purging the old. 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
FULL MOON Lunar Eclipse in Pisces, September 16, 2016-Find a way to cut the anger and irritability so things can shift
I don’t know how your days were this week but a couple days ago mine was crazed. I had no time to look and see what the energy was like before I left the house but I wish I had checked. I have never encountered such aggression in drivers, delays in action, and just plain weird events. Well I did see this today and it totally makes complete sense. Mercury Retrograde in Virgo square Mars in Sagittarius characterized a quite fiery and impatient day. Were you looking for a quick fix like I was…well you may have felt like I did with all kinds of roadblocks and stuck in the muck energy. A good example is when I was getting on the turnpike to come back to my home I encountered a woman in a Mercedes who was being quite impatient waiting in line at the tollbooth. So she decides to start backing up and since I was not able to do this as there was a car in back of me…she was pushing. And I beeped my horn. She kept saying get out of my way. So I did and moved into the other lane where 2 cars were ahead of me…and she beeps her horn as she sits now behind me…and then takes off like a bat out of hell, give me a very unkind sign and speeds through another lane. In the meantime I am sitting waiting because the guy two cars ahead of me says no tickets are coming out of machine. Oh my. Well, I waited and for once was patient and a lady came by and gave me a ticket. Yes, Mercury square Mars was right on with its energy. And it still continues on a short while. Your mind may see what needs to be said, but you could wind up blurting it out before you’ve had a chance to choose your words more carefully. Figure out what you really want, and when you feel a bit calmer and more grounded then speak. If you have been inhibited now may be the time to make the move toward solving something.
As the full moon in Pisces approaches with its lunar eclipse accompanying it is time of intense intricacies of letting go, purging and finally getting ready to look for a restart in many ways. Since the Solar Eclipse New Moon took place on Sept.1 life has been very interesting. How many of you have taken a look deeper than usual within yourself? Have any of you actually let go of all the junk that keeps you from taking big leaps forward. I know…I sound like a broken record but in order for you to do what you came to do you need to be free of the craziness of the past whether in relationships, the work place, family or whatever part of your life that keeps you stuck. So have you considered this at all? Have you worked on allowing your true spirit to come forward to begin the trek again? Ask the angels and the Divine for help to do this.
This particular lunar eclipse Full Moon in Pisces is another doozy. It takes place Friday, September 16, 2016 at 3:05pm EDT, 12:05 PDT and 7:05 GMT in 24 degrees 19’ Pisces. Sun is at the exact degree in Virgo. With this being an eclipse it is telling you it is about taking big leaps on your soul’s path. It accents the motivations you have that are below the surface. Think back to September 16, 1997 and see what was the main focus in your life. Is that particular issue still bothering you? Have you learned from what was going on in your life? Have you built upon the good that surrounded you at that time?
It is truly about healing the disconnect you have between feminine and masculine energy. Also says how about healing the imbalance between head and heart. It is very much telling you to stop the fear existence within and bring out love to others. Stop pushing others away and start interconnecting with those in your realm and out of your realm. The Full Moon is aspecting Chiron in Pisces and also square Mars in Sagittarius. That is saying time has come to let go of all those beliefs that have been thrust upon you from the patriarchal system which thrives in this world. The deception that has sprung from this has to be released so you can feel the authentic love of both yourself and others. Don’t you wish to be the self that the Divine intended you to be? For some it may turn into a very romantic time if you keep love shining and stay away from any critical remarks. And please suppress that need to be a know-it-all or it will bring much drama. Do you really need that? Anger may pull on you. How about maybe actually clear out any emotional baggage that has been hanging on for the past 6 months. What do you say? Are you still frustrated? Well, what will you do about it? Find a way to stop reacting and being so irritable.
And then there also is ol’ feisty Mars in Sagittarius trining (good aspect) to Uranus in Aries as this lunar eclipse takes place. Hey, dear ones, it’s saying that you are going to say it anyway, so emotional expression is highlighted and you know Mars…leap first, think about it later. So, what do you need to say these next weeks with gentleness? What are you failing to reveal? You will do so, you know. So get it out there with tact.
What else can you do …pay attention to your dreamland. You may get signs or symbols of importance. Could be the answer you are looking for! Be more compassionate. Write some poetry to a lover or someone you would love to know. Pisces Full Moon may remind you to just relax, refresh and get more sleep. Not such a bad idea, now is it?
The Sun in Virgo is opposite Chiron Pisces 22 degrees. This transit can bring a challenge to your sense of personal purpose versus the vision of possibilities. Perhaps you are feeling a conflict between what you want to gain on a personal level versus a higher vision of what you could be capable of. To reach out to the possibilities you have to move beyond your comfort zone. Do you worry it may make you feel inadequate? It is between what is and what could be. Later it will be time to take further action, but for how it is important to think about what is going on so that you can make a decision.
Mars in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces. It may be time to confront issues in your life that involve how/why you get hurt by others, how you yourself hurt others, and how healing can take place in either of these situations. Are you only looking to satisfy expectations from others? This may try to push you in a healing direction, possibly by showing you how and why the path you have been on does not lead to where you want to go. If you start to feel overwhelmed, take some time out from the stress to get grounded and make sure you are centered.
Jupiter has just entered Libra and whatever house it falls in tells you where your confidence and level of joy is increased. You also will feel motivated to improve or gain in these matters. You will feel more free and confident. Be self-assured but do not overdo. Jupiter does have a desire to expand and it reminds you to believe in yourself.
So be ready to see what the Light is shining upon within you and be ready to take the next step. Where will it take you? Mercury moves out of retrograde on September 21 and Pluto goes direct at 15 degrees Capricorn on September 26. New options are coming to light between September 13 and September 18. Do pay attention.
Most affected by the Full Moon in Pisces are those whose birthdays are March 12-19; June 13-June 19; September 12-Septembr 19; and December 13-20.
Have a wonderful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. Look within and let the answers arise to show you the next step on the horizon. Shine your light! Thank you for reading. Radio show Going Beyond Astrology is on Tuesday nights at 9pm EDT. Tune in on the 20th for how Pluto is affecting your life. 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.
