It is Thanksgiving Day in the US of A. It is a day to think about thankfulness. It is just one day that represents every day because each day is a day of being thankful and grateful. For those who do not celebrate this American tradition, it is still important to think about having gratitude and thankfulness. Do you? “If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” (M. Eckhart)
Did you wake up today being grateful for your life? There are many of you who are in pain and suffering due to circumstances beyond your control. Can you still be thankful for something in your life? Many times people have wondered how I can be thankful for all the challenges that have appeared in my life whether in childhood or teenage years or through the rest of the years. It took me years to recognize how thankful I was for me and who I was and how grateful I felt for the experiences which made me into the strong and loving woman I am today. Yes, there are obstacles and yes, there are setbacks, yet life is here for living not for complaining and moaning and being bitter about what happened 10 minutes ago, 10 days ago, 10 years ago or even 100 years ago. And why am I saying this now? This is the first step in releasing all the gunk in your thinking patterns, all the old worn out beliefs and all the buried anger and resentment. By being grateful for your experiences and thankful that you are here to change those things will bring you to a higher vibration and more peace and joy in your life. And add in “love”. There is no peace without LOVE. So those of you who have a notion that you can have peace without showing real love, it may become more difficult in the coming days. Try the thankfulness road and you may find your thought process will change and your life will be more on track and you begin take leaps.
Just a reminder that the Sun has just entered Sagittarius and Venus has entered Scorpio. The Sun in Sagittarius is about expanding your horizons, reading books and having a joyful time while staying in an optimistic frame of mind. Oh sure, you say. Seriously, if you choose to get out of your rut, take a trip or just be in the company of good friends who have great things to say and will support your optimism. Watch for recklessness in your words though since you may choose to blurt out things that can be said in a more diplomatic way. Some people do take things personally so any harsh words. Things were pretty mysterious with the Sun in Scorpio so now is your chance to get to the truth if that’s what you are looking for.
With Venus in Scorpio you can get to the root issues in your relationships and move from the balance and peacefulness of it leaving Libra and pumping up the action in Scorpio. It can get pretty hot. Venus in Scorpio wants the truth in everything including your relationship, Can you handle the heat? It may bring suppressed negatives to the surface. How will you handle that? Then again with all the intensity rising and letting the issues come up to be released, the physical and emotional intimacy will come into a better place. Stop running from it and face the issues and then the truth can be present and the heat will support your walk forward.
Mercury is still retrograde and will go direct on November 26 at 18 degrees Scorpio. I need to keep my words to myself since it is opposite my Sun. Someone may misinterpret what I say. Oh drat as if this is something new!!!! The direct motion comes 2 days before the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini on November 28. Stay tuned.
Blessings to you as thankfulness and gratitude are to the forefront. Remember it in your daily lives and you will begin to see the changes that will amaze you. Thank you for your support and all you do. Until again. Love, Jan
Hello again to those who have found their path and to those who are locked in the past. Are you shining today? Let the old thinking go, so the Light can brightly glow, when you reach within your heart, which will bring a brand new start, allowing a leap to help you grow and now you know how to show…others the same.
As the Light glows about us, there is so much controversy seeping through the cracks. There are earthquakes rumbling; wars a brewing; children going missing and people being falsely accused; droughts in many places; candidates screaming at each other; and so many other things like the Sandusky scandal which has so much misinformation. But then again most mainstream media news is misinformation. It makes me crazy. And did the Olympics entertain you with the go for the gold? It is an interesting phenomenon that gold is always in the news.. Years ago when I started to journal consistently, I began to allow my Higher Self to take over and one day I wrote pages and pages about gold. At first without giving it too much thought, it came to me maybe it was about the Divine. Some of it made sense and other times it did not. So what is my point? Well I came across mention of gold in my reading lately (not gold ingots or gold standard or gold Olympic medallions). Dr. Sha says that gold is about the following- G-ratitude, O-bedience, L-oyalty, D-evotion. Interesting! The New Moon is in Leo and also likes gold.
On Friday, August 17, 2012, the NEW MOON in the lion LEO commands our attention as it takes place at 11:55am EDT at 25deg08min. NEW MOON In LEO glows even though it is invisible to us. The Sun is in Leo which is all about the creative within. It speaks of courage and confidence. Taking charge of your lives is paramount. This is about you and moving into your heart. Yes, your heart. The Lion has a big heart. Of course, some Leo get stuck in their egos especially if they let their pride get in the way. Some of you will find successful resolutions to problems on the home front. That comes from facing your inner truths. If you refuse to look within, who knows what happens? Cooperation is a must for successful relationships. Wherever you have the New Moon in Leo in your chart will be affected more intensely. On the other hand your charisma and creativity may be stifled if there is any stubbornness present within. This is a major downfall to many who are creative and fail to move into their heartfelt song. This is quite a romantic time for those of you involved or those of you who are open to new deeper, friendly interactions. Leo loves praise. So I suggest you nurture others by giving praise and you may get it right back. Sounds good. Leo New Moon brings fun to the scene.
Playing is part of life. Make sure both parties are on board. A bold move now may happen but please hold off final decisions at this time. Why do I say that? Well here is the other half of the next 2 weeks before the Full Moon. Mercury went direct at 1:40am EDT on Wednesday, August 8, 2012. It continues in forward motion and goes high speed on the 21st of August. Hurrah!! You have been through a review process and a time of liberation now shows up. How many out there are mind-controlled? You would be surprised as to how little it takes for you to be susceptible to the conditioning. Many of you may be on the verge of breaking out of this so-called condition. So, keep moving forward for now is the time. It may not bring you exactly what you choose immediately but it will give you a big opening to who you truly are. If you are enmeshed in a relationship that has been tricky to extract yourself, then the forward motion may give you the chance. This is a time for letting go completely of all that has no meaning in your life. A new life is in front of you, are you going to go for it? If you stay enmeshed you need to allow the energy to begin to unravel your ties and the sooner the better due to upcoming events that may decide for you. On the other hand, this is a good time for revolutionary changes in your relationships. Mars/Saturn conjunction aspecting the New Moon creates passionate displays. If your angst has gotten to you –maybe there is a dream piece of poetry or grand music residing within. Take the passion and do something with it. And for goodness sakes rejuvenate the relationship aspects after all the stress of the last month. Physical and sexual expression prevents anger from getting out of control.
You need to trust your soul and the process. As I mentioned in the beginning of the post stubbornness can gunk up the flow. When things are kept from flowing that means there is a block within which in many cases is your need to control everything. New Moon in Leo gives you the opportunity to trust in order for the door to open. Stubbornness usually keeps the door shut to your true path. You may feel that what you are doing is true yet there is no movement. I say check it out because you may be holding yourself back from the biggest leap of your life. Scary? Fear still resides within. Oh dear what can you do? Lose the fear. Did you hear that?
Here are other things of note. The Solar eclipse which took place on May 20 is now ready to activate on August 20. That is 90 days after its inception. Wherever it fell in your natal chart is where it will trigger again. Also am mentioning this early to give you a heads up. Saturn goes into Scorpio in October. This is all about rules and following them. And the Dragon’s head (North node) goes into Scorpio on August 31 2012. This is about stone-cold reality. The path to be carved is about Scorpionic skills which are emotional, psychological, intuitive, metaphysical, and sexual, Deep stuff!! BUT, that’s life and now is the time to truly look at which direction you are heading. The South Node coming into Taurus at that time wants you to bring forth your self-worth (if you lack this, get trucking on it and bring it back or it will keep you stuck),money finesse (negative-obsession with money or financial issues can bring you down at this time –be careful). The groundedness of the Taurus south node will lead you onto the Scorpio North Node path that is needed at this juncture. Enjoy the few weeks of the Leo New Moon because when this comes in, the ducks are coming off the pond. Reality strikes and it is serious. Scorpio can be tough. Watch for stress and drama. Ditch the old patterns and beliefs already (this is part of what ascension is about).
Bon chance as the days move forward into another turning point. Leaps happen. Pay attention. May your blessings be a thousandfold. Thank you for all your support. Until again. Love, Jan (watch for developments with Gov of PA re:
Sandusky case and Penn State. Something looks like it is ready
to come out and it may be inadvertantly.)
