As the New Year begins I ask you, dear ones, – do you know your truth? How about truth of your life and truth of the world? What do you believe as the world supposedly turns or does not? As I take a look at the year that has passed I sit here in disbelief regarding the attitude of so many of you. Now, before you take offense (because someone always does) I ask you to truly look at you and how you go through life. Is this the you that you wish to take forward in the year of 2018? What do you choose to shift to a better place within and without? Many of you still cling to the past due to a variety of reasons whether it is about relationships, jobs, old beliefs, fears or fill in the blank. How do you expect to move ahead in any area of your life if you continue to fear, to hold on, to let your ego control your decisions? You tell me because I am curious and would love to hear what you say. Most of you will not comment. That is ok. It is your choice.
To digress for a moment…As I wrote one word in a comment on something that was posted on “FB” I noticed that when I went on another website there was an ad for that word I used. What a bunch of losers!!! And the word had nothing to do with their ad. Life becomes more controlled and ridiculous on every breath. So back to you— Are you an individual or are you someone that just goes along with the crowd? I see it in the news. I see it on the Net. I see in the grocery store. The very fact that you are influenced totally and unless you wake up there is no tomorrow for you because you will become the food of the parasites who rule this planet. You need to find your Spirit. As the Full Moon comes in there are so many things which are out of balance and keeping you from being your truth. But there is hope since Saturn just went into Capricorn and it will definitely put on the taskmaster shoes and get that focus centered where it falls in your natal chart. This influence will last for about 2.5 years so it will get you on track in some way. This is a time of deciding what goal you have in mind. What do you truly wish to do in these next couple of years? Nothing is too big for the Saturn-ruled Capricorn and with Saturn present here it gives you the opportunity to make that move forward slowly and deliberately. This is no place to be for the faint of heart. The mountain goat climbs and climbs until it reaches its destination no matter how long it takes. But it can also bring all those fears to the table. Oh no. Now what will you do? Stop listening to the crap on the news. That is fear-mongering to the ultimate!!! Do you recognize what is going on? What is happening in the world is so far off-track that it is unreal for goodness sakes. If you do not like that statement then stop reading now.
The Full Moon is in Cancer arrives January 1, 2018 at 9:24pm EST; 6:24pm PST and on January 2, 2018 at 2:34am GMT at 11degrees 37’. The Sun is in Capricorn at the same degree. When the Sun is opposite the Moon there is a polarity somewhere in your life. An example is work versus home or being creative versus logical thinking. Lots of emphasis on your relationships and family usually occur at the Full Moon. Usually whatever you began anew at the previous New Moon which was on December 17/18, 2017 will come to fruition or maybe you will need to just fine tune it. The Full Moon energy lasts until the next New Moon on January 16/17. It is a supportive type Supermoon. This is the only one of the year.
The Full Moon in Cancer is trine (in good aspect) to Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio which helps you to tune into your inner wisdom, your intuition and the depths of your soulfulness. Along with the Sun there is Venus, Pluto and Saturn which are also opposing the Full Moon in Cancer which says that you may question your intuitiveness and what it is telling you because you would rather stick with the plan. Then again you may retreat to the crab shell of the Cancer moon because you are afraid to take the leap that is right in front of you. One suggestion – Do not sacrifice your feelings and needs because you have your goals out there. And please keep your heart in it and come through with peace and gentleness or you could be pulled into the shadow of Capricorn which is more serious and just doing it yourself.
I know some of you are looking for jobs and new directions/opportunities. Well, I feel that just by keeping your focus and putting it out there you will find it comes to you. Since Full Moons are about getting rid of old junk, patterns and all the rest of it, watch that others do not shove something at you and try to make you listen to them. Stay in your power even when the negative thinking pops out at this time.
Mars in Scorpio squares (90 degrees challenging) the North Node/South Node at 15 degrees Leo/Aquarius on January 2. This is also squaring the Lunar Eclipse upcoming and the previous one in August. It is a time for you to really find the work energy outstanding yet there may be no cooperation with those who are in the same venue with you. Mars is conjunct Jupiter at 18 degrees on January 6. Keep this in mind if you are ready to start something new. It is a perfect time to do so. This is a perfect time for social activities and relationships due to the fact that Venus in Capricorn is opposing the full moon and sextiling (favorable) Jupiter in Scorpio. It is also good for agreements.
Uranus in Aries goes stationary direct on January 2 after being in retrograde motion for the last five months. What this says to you is that there can be this surprising development that shows up in your life and motivates you. You may have been going through all kinds of major transformation and now you will recognize there can be a move in a new direction since Pallas Athene is conjunct (within 2degrees) Uranus. Take advantage of the insights that sing to you and you will find your life becoming quite interesting and you are ready for action. Be the individual that you were born to be. Too many of you are fearful of taking a step out of the comfort zone and if you do, it is always about money and the physical world which is wonderful but without Spirit. Your heartsong is important and it will help you take a leap at this time. Do what is your passion…do what inspires you. Stop letting others sabotage your dreams. Uranus in Aries is also square (difficult aspect/6 degree orb) Pluto in Capricorn and this takes you through the fiery shift that has been in effect for about 5 years and continues to forcefully prod you to get out of the stagnation and transform yourself and your life. Choose it or not, it is happening.
Sending out many blessings for a beautiful New Year of 2018 filled with magnificence. May you find joy and peace, love and good health and an overflow of cash that brings financial freedom. Thank you for reading the post through the year. I am hoping I can expand it into a space of more insights on other topics also. Thank you again for the old you and the new you to come this year. Until again. Love, Jan
