The NEW MOON is almost upon us. Thought I could post this a couple of days ago, but work got in the way. The energy sure is shifting lately and many of you are riding the waves and some of you are having a difficult time finding your balance. Well, this is a prime time for that balance in relationships and otherwise because the NEW MOON appears at 8:03am EDT Monday morning, October 15, 2012, in 22 degrees of Libra. The Libra Sun/Moon conjunction is about balance and relationships and saying what needs to be said. As you already know that New Moon is about setting intentions that will get you through the next 4 weeks. So, take the opportunity to do so and set those intentions that are coming from your heart. This is an especially beneficial time for focusing on relationships. When was the last time you pondered the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship? Is there something you wish to manifest now after honing in on the ups and downs of said relationship?
Since the New Moon takes place at 8:03am EDT I am going to ask you this. If you are in a relationship is it still an important asset to you and your life or has it become a liability? And you think what do assets and liabilities have to do with this? Well, some of you still think in the material plane and since that is where the assets and liabilities exist, I thought you might relate better to what I am saying as those terms filter into your relating. What can you do to turn it into an asset? Perhaps you may want to talk to your partner and actually speak from your heart. That would certainly be a positive action. Of course, I hear some of you saying that that other half doesn’t hear what you say. Do you come from a place of love or do you raise your voice and come in anger? I know that love works even though there are those of you who hesitate to come from the love place because fear sets in due to past experiences. This is the time to change that dial. Reach out from the heart in a divinely loving place and see the difference in the response you receive. This NEW MOON gives you the impetus to create something better.
As you approach the New Moon you may wish to think about what direction you choose to take your life; what path is the right one for YOU; and how do you feel about it. What can YOU do to bring the real you to others to see you clearly as you really are. AUTHENTICITY keeps popping up. If you are walking someone else’s path and not your own, this is a perfect opening to shift that. You have to walk your path no matter who tries to pull you onto another. What do you choose to create from this time of the New Moon rising? Do you know that this is a perfect time to do something that is truly you and not about someone else. Do you realize that you need to say what is in your heart and throw out all those superficial thoughts? Find a new way to relate instead of using the same old stuff. There is no balance in relationships if those involved are untrue to themselves. Look at you and look at the relationship. Are you really doing what you came to do, acting in the way that is really your true self and honoring the other’s true self? Balance comes then. If you realize that your actions or your words are not really you and you think…this is not me…then change it now. And even if you read this down the road a bit, you can still change it. Yes you can.
This is the time to restore the balance. Harmony is the key word. You all have issues with past, present and maybe future but the rock bottom line is this…a new beginning can always take place and at a New Moon it is especially auspicious. Another thing that this Libra New Moon brings to you is passion. Do you know what your passion is? Since Mars and Uranus are in good aspect during this New Moon it is saying to you if you haven’t found your passion, then now is the time to dig deeper for it. Find the direction that can open new songs in your heart and new ways to relate. Fear be gone. What are you waiting for?
As the New Moon rises, Jupiter is trining it from Gemini. This helps the creative mode of the New Moon. This also adds to the communication end of a relationship. So you can come up with creative ways to express yourself and approach your partner or anyone to whom you are relating. Just imagine, a new perspective on loving communication can take place. Express that love because it comes quite easily now. Those of you who have planets around 22 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will find it more intense around this moon. On October 28 Venus and Mars are more conducive to flowing. When these lovers are in sync, life is grand. Now they will be more balanced, more harmonious. The fiery Mars and its energy is fanned by the airy Venus. This too is about creative balance in relationships. If you begin something at this time with another you will see it expand as the Full Moon takes place at the end of October.
Libra New Moon is about balance, harmony and relationships as I have stated throughout this post. It is a time to speak from your heart and staying in that power without letting anyone take it from you. It is better to be your authentic self than someone else’s image. It is a time to move on from the old and into the new, finding that fear never did anything for you anyway. Now did it?
May your blessings be many and may the Light shine brightly upon you. Have a beautiful week filled with wonder and joy. Remember joy is what it is about every single day with every person you meet or to whom you relate. JOY is the elixir. Remember that. Until again. Love, Jan
Where shall I begin? I can start in the deep dark jungles of Africa, or the Plains of our USA or in the Outback of Australia, or maybe even Siberia. Life has been shifting immensely and before I say anything about the NEW MOON let’s take a look at how you are doing. Lots of thinking, thinking, thinking has been taking place within you. Your mind has been racing and you just want to shut out the world. What a truth that is. Nothing is as it seems yet everything is what you think it is, or is it? Your brain has been on a merry-go-round. Quick, jump off now! It does feel better. Thought it would never stop, didn’t you? The NEW MOON in CANCER 26 deg. 56 min. on July 19, 2012 at 12:24am EDT. Sabian Symbol for this degree is “A violent storm in the canyon filled with expensive homes.” It is suggesting you are feeling comfy in your life filled with good books and amenities and an unexpected crisis occurs and you have an inner metamorphosis due to the chaos that continually pulls on you. The word is catharsis. So, anyone with planets near this degree of Cancer will be affected intensely. If you have Mercury, it will affect your communication in a stifled kind of way; more serious than jovial. The planet Mars around this degree brings an energetic burst to the new beginning but it can be volatile. Any planet that is in Aries, Libra or Capricorn will also be affected strongly.
NEW MOON in Cancer is about relaxing, resting and rejuvenating. If you choose to leap, it won’t be a big one since Mercury is Retrograde and Uranus, Pluto and Mars are in a T-Square. Ouch, it says. This will be going on for some time down the road. I will go further into detail shortly about this. Back to the New Moon now. New Moon in Cancer is about the inner, sacred Mother who is nurturing. Cancer is also about being aware of your emotions. After all the rehashing you have been doing the last month or so, this is a respite. Cancer the Crab likes to dive down into the deep and then when something looks inviting, it comes out with its claw to grab it. Cancer the Crab knows how to use the flow to its advantage. Do you? Cancer New Moon says to be open to new opportunities but not to act upon them yet. If you really prefer to retreat right now then do it with utmost fervor and deeply retreat. Enjoy just sitting back and allowing the flow until you feel ready to take the next leap. If the heat isn’t oppressive you can sit on the swing or in the hammock just lazing at those times you can do so. And if you are in the cooler winter in the Southern Hemisphere, wrap up in a cozy blanket and veg out. No pressure. Allow the flow. And even those of you who cannot stay off your laptops or stop watching TV, it’s ok. Perhaps those sentimental movies would be to your liking at this time.
The sign Cancer is about feelings too. It is about bonding with another individual on a deep emotional level. There is something changing within you. Can you feel it? How many of you have avoided your deepest feelings for fear if you express them you will get hurt? I hope you have decided to share them with others because New Moon in Cancer is all about feelings and the Crab needs that bonding on a deep personal level. And if any of you feel otherwise, it is called repression of those feelings due to beliefs, hurts, affronts and fear. Let it go already and go with the flow. What are you longing for? It will begin to seep through at the New Moon. A time for nurturing and intimacy has arrived. Seeking refuge within is good for a time and then it is about allowing the depth of feelings to come through. If you have no feelings how do you create what you desire in your life? A repressed feeling in you brings about chaotic conditions. So be prepared if you suppress those emotions. Why not be your creative self or your feeling self and write poetry/ create new songs. This is the kind of feeling you have with the New Moon in Cancer. Create and feel. Get it?
Mercury is retrograde until August 7/8. This is not your usual Mercury retrograde because it tends to be softer. Minor interruptions, distractions and losing items may be at the core. Only suggestion, buy no electronic items during this time and please sign no papers that are important agreements. The possibility of having to redo them is paramount.
Mars is in Libra at 8deg opposing Uranus at 8deg. Oh my. The electric current is magnified. Those feelings may be present but this opposition can turn your world into a nightmare of anger, hostility and unexpected affronts. Those who feel anger right now watch out. Just stop the power struggles and turn it into an empowerment time. Take that energy and use it wisely. And then this opposition squares Pluto, the great transformer. Guess what? Have you noticed anything lately coming from those in mainstream misinforming media? They are playing into this energy and so are those who read and listen to the junk they put out. Is that you? I hope not. Joe Paterno died in January 2012. He is being trashed and burnt at the stake because the media has taken it upon themselves to draw you into what they want. It is heartless the way those that judge this man. You can laugh at me, tell me I have no clue, it matters not. This is a story; a big story and it is not what it appears to be. Sandusky is a perp. Paterno was not. Tell me, each and every one of you that you would have gone to the police, the authorities, the higher-ups. Go ahead and tell me. Oh, so you choose to tear him down too? Go for it because it will come back to haunt you if you are dragged into this hive mind, the mob rule. You have no idea what happened. NONE. And don’t tell me that you are told everything. You are told what they want you to know. PERIOD! So, go ahead get on the bandwagon. I don’t hear the graduate assistant’s name anymore. I don’t hear the name of President of PSU anymore. The perp is still alive and will act again. And it matters not whether you tear down the statue or you take Joe off the list at Brown University. I think your attention is being manipulated and you have no idea that this is something other than what it seems. Things are going to get even uglier if people jump on the hive mind train. There is more to this than meets the eye.
Dear ones, I appreciate your support and your kind words. Let the storms pass you by when you find a way to relax and rejuvenate. Let no one drag you into their muck. Stop it before it gets a hold on you. Feel deeply and allow love it to flow to those you love. Next stop Full Moon in Leo. It’s party time and you can shine. Have a beautiful week. Until again, Love, Jan
