Hey, dear ones. I know many of you haven’t been smiling lately. Well, maybe it is time to do so. The NEW MOON in GEMINI at 0 degrees (which is also the Annular Solar Eclipse) and takes place on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 7:47pm EDT. Looks like the 747 is going to take off for new beginnings. It is time to put those intentions out there. Think of your intention, create the plan and get moving on it. This Solar Eclipse lasts between 2-3 hours which means its effects will be around for a few years and fading out in 2015. Life is shifting dramatically. The ducks are coming off the pond, as my dad used to say. I know I have been saying that for awhile now. Have you awakened or are you still stuck in those old habits, patterns and hanging on for dear life to that which is past? Many of you have no interest in moving forward and I see this daily in my interactions. Some of you are amused by the things I say and others just have no interest because burying your head in the sand is easier to do. Are you ready to leap yet? Looking forward to seeing you take the risk and knowing that it was worth it.
This is a mental New Moon since Gemini is the communicator and messenger. This could very well be about how and what you think and also what comes from this thinking. The 0 degree is definitely a new start. Basic stuff! Or you can go all the way back to the beginning and start again. This depends on your life and what is going on. Of course, there is another side to this New Moon Solar Eclipse that is a reminder. Your integrity is in question. Walking the path of truth is a theme song here. If you are off-track, I say to you. Find your way back to your truth now or the spiritual 2×4 is going to strike. No fear intended. Some of you are avoiding this truth and do you know what…it comes out. If there is fabrication or deception, I suggest you hide out in the mountains of the Himalayas. Well, not really, it will find you. This is a biggie. If you missed your turn in the road, then I suggest you get back on the road and find it now.
This eclipse takes no prisoners. It is potent and it is truly going to break down the walls you have built around you with old thinking patterns and beliefs. This is a time to STOP and think as to how many of you may be pretending and realize it no longer works. Who of you are just lollygagging through your life right now? That is going to stop too. Now, understand that you may choose to lay back and ponder your life and what the new beginning is. That works. I am speaking about just hanging out and pretending to walk your talk. Again remember it is about integrity. Is your thinking your own or are you just appeasing those around you so you don’t take the leap that is being presented to you? What do you really choose to do? Any hints coming to you? Are you actually paying attention? Blah, Blah, Blah. I know some of you may think right now that this is a bunch of hogwash. Well, it may be. Some of you know exactly what is coming down. Others are oblivious. You choose your own way to go not someone else’s. Their opinions are a control, right? Do any of you want to leap? Your Light within is yearning to come out and move through this dark world that you live in. Let it out. Be your truth and stop the pretense.
I bet many of you have found the last few weeks to be a bit shaky. Fuzzy thinking prevailed and so did some intense feelings. Of course, much of what has been going on is dependent on where this eclipse new moon falls in your chart.. Many lies are coming to light. Hidden motivations and distortions are being brought out. Watch how many news items can no longer be covered up anymore. And for goodness sakes stop feeling like a victim. Do something about it already if you feel that way. This is a time to let your ego rest so the truth can be revealed to you. And if you find yourself thinking negative, tell your ego to go to its room for now, and bring yourself back into balance. This is a right thinking time. Ponder. Meditate. Be impeccable with your word.
Venus went retrograde on May 15th. What does that mean for you? It stays in that motion until June 27th. Right now it is at 23 degrees in Gemini. It began in the shadow of the retrograde at 7 degrees Gemini and moves direct at 7 degrees Gemini. I keep mentioning integrity. Well, Venus started with Aldebaron (a fixed star—represents integrity) goes direct near Aldebaron. So, walk your talk and be in truth now. It is very important to do so. Venus retrograde brings to the table some reevaluation of relationships and how they affect your life. You need to communicate from your heart or it will be a tough ride for awhile. So, dear ones, open your hearts and get out of the dream. The dream is ok if you create a new beginning from it. Mars square the New Moon Eclipse makes for some stress times. That’s why integrity is important. Ok, I sound like a broken record. Hear what I am saying regarding your need for integrity. Things are shifting and in order to leap, you need to clear out the residue of old hurts and emotional wounds. Relate in a new way to those around you – family, friends, lovers, and in the workplace.
Who is most affected? Those of you who have birthdates or any planets in your chart from 25 degrees Taurus to 5 degrees Gemini will feel it more intensely. All of you need to keep yourself focused and pay attention so you aren’t blindsided by anyone’s action. One more thing-the New Moon Solar Eclipse is seen in places like Japan and Hong Kong, northern California, New Mexico, Colorado and ends in Texas. Will any of these places have big news stories And remember the NATO Summit is in Chicago over the eclipse!
Get ready for a big leap and know that some of you will be quite ready in the next months to begin anew. I send my blessings of joy to you so that wherever this time takes you that it brings you a new perspective. May all of you have an aha moment. Stay safe and until again. Love, Jan
Sorry this is posted later than I intended. Got caught up in the story of Penn State Coach Joe Paterno’s death. (This is totally off topic for a moment) He was always a favorite of mine for a very long time and by waiting to write this I let the tone of my writing calm down and just choose to pray for his peace and the family’s healing through all that happened in the last few months. He was a man of character and integrity and I do hope that the truth comes out regarding his monsterdom according to the media due to his lack of effort to report something that was passed down the lane to him (child abuse issue that was done by a former coach).Perhaps the Board of Trustees should all be fired also since they basically took part in his demise. (My perspective only) If you know the truth, then I welcome your input; if not, then nothing more to say. I am just tired of the media putting the blame on him. No one talks about the truth anymore. He deserves peace. Let him be and those who are badmouthing him should walk their talk which has much to do with what is going on this New Moon. Now onto the New Moon in Aquarius which takes place at 2:39am EST on January 23, 2012 (not too long from now) at 2deg 42min.
This New Moon in Aquarius is about uniqueness, originality. Can you go beyond your comfort zone and take a risk or choose to see something with a new perspective? Is there an idea that sits within you that would make a difference for humanity? Are you willing to manifest that for everyone instead of just you? This is an idealistic yet practical time due to the Jupiter square to the New Moon. And for it to work out you need to stay harmonious. Can you do that? With the Jupiter square the New Moon can bring you to overreact to whatever is presented. It is a time when you find yourself between two situations and you may choose to take a risk. This Aquarian New Moon is about walking your talk or you may get caught in some muck.
As the New Moon shows up in the early morning hours on the East Coast, the Chinese New Year begins not too long after. It is the year of the Water Dragon. Good year for love and marriage if you are so inclined. Also for some of you it may be a time of leaving the past behind and moving into the place that you have always known to be true.
This New Moon is also about freedom. What does that word mean to you? Do you actually feel free in your life situation or are you pretending that freedom exists? Think about the truth of that question. Everyone intends freedom within yet many choose to be caught in a web of uncertainty due to a need for security. Does security ever really exist in anything? It can be all wiped away in an instant. Why not choose the free thinking that this New Moon energizes within. Look at the real you and find that freedom to initiate a new look on your life and that will help others to see your integrity (walking your talk) and they will walk their talk too! This time of the New Moon is also about goals and what your true intentions are going to be. Do you have goals for the new year because this is a perfect time to take a look at them and reset them if need be.
Hours after the Aquarian New Moon appears Marx goes retrograde. Oh great! Just as you are ready to take a leap, it slows you down. If you have had plans in motion for a long time, then I say do it. Take the risk and leap. If it a new idea, a new venture or any other thing, then stop and think about it because a rebalancing may be needed. It is a time for healing, working around the house and plain old fashioned clearing out. Isn’t that what it seems you are doing much of lately? Well, here we go again. Letting go and clearing out all the junk that still hangs around would certainly bring you a feeling of more freedom. This Mars is in Virgo when it goes retrograde may be truly a time of rebalancing karmic energies. Are you ready to take advantage of the time to regroup? Then that leap down the road will become so much easier. Around April 13 it goes direct and things begin to really take off. It is sooner than you realize.
In my own chart the New Moon is trine (good energy) to my North Node in Gemini. It is a terrific time for some forward motion in self-awareness and finding some more insights on my true direction in life. It also squares my Chiron and my Saturn, ouch. Some karmic wounds resurface to be healed. Hey, that’s ok with me. I am ready since Jupiter is in on the Grand Square. It will give me an opportunity to heal and then make a big jump in certain areas of my life.
So, dear ones, use the Aquarian New Moon energy to help see things in a new way. Not too big a leap yet although some of you may just do it anyway. Look at how freedom exists in your life. Also, take that idea to the next level to help humanity or your neighbor or some other group member. Sharing works. May you have many blessings and thank you for your support. I am most grateful. Until again. Love, Jan
