The mountain goat is now upon us. And the New Year is just about here. By the time I post this, the bright New Year will descend upon you. Are you ready for a new beginning, a renewal of energy, a leap up the mountain? Maybe you will find a new perspective. Are you truly ready to reach the summit of your inner workings? Life has become a metamorphosis for some of you and others of you have slowed down. Some are in a rut yet very happy to be there. Who is feeling joy? Maybe I have felt it lately from the Joy Tonic which I found in my stocking at Christmas. Everyone can be feeling so if you allow it. Allowing is everything in all parts of your life. If you are out of balance things will go away out of your reach until the balance is present.
This New Moon in Capricorn is at 10degrees 57’ on January 1, 2014 at 6:14 AM EST, 3:14 AM PST and 11:14AM GMT. All new moons are about new starts and new intentions. What do you choose to intend so that manifestation can take place? This NEW MOON in Capricorn is pretty strong-willed yet would like you to be responsible and accountable for what you say and do. With Pluto sitting on it a few minutes away it is telling you to grow up and stop acting like teenagers. Yes…exactly. It is time to be the mountain goat and climb that mountain and look within for your purpose if you haven’t recognized it yet. So many of you just sit back and let others do it all. Pluto doesn’t like this. And with the New Moon, oh boy, watch it. This is a good thing for everyone. It is a wake-up call. If you have secrets, forget about it because the New Moon energy will find you out. It abhors secrets. This New Moon in Capricorn is about openness with others in your life. Stay in the truth dear ones and life will flow. Uranus in Aries squares the New Moon. It tells me that you will tend towards impulsiveness even if you know better than to do it.
Those with Capricorn Sun or Moon are quite ambitious, efficient and patient. On the other hand they can also be suspicious, stubborn and intolerant. Some of this energy from these traits can show up in the next few weeks as a result of the New Moon. If you are a Capricorn type or experiencing a Capricorn energy you may meet obstacles, delays and setbacks because Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and it likes to make sure you are on track before you set out on the next part of the journey. If you face them objectively then you will find they fade out quickly. This comes only when you are seeking spiritual growth and not personal growth. Just a reminder…spiritual growth comes from within not from religion.
With Pluto being right with the New Moon it is about power. Of course, you may want to take the power away from someone, or show how powerful you are. Is it really about this? No, it is about bringing the power into your realm from the spirit. Channel that energy and listen to your heart when it speaks to you. All is in tune with this New Moon and Venus is still retrograde but out of aspect. This is truly a time to speak the truth in a kind way in relationships to resolve anything that may be hindering flow and love. And speaking of truth, authenticity is needed now in a major way. Have you been living with integrity? Have you treated those in your life the way you would like to be treated? Think about it. It is a new year, a new moon and an opportunity to do just that. If you allow others to treat you with unkindness and disrespect, is that something that is making you feel good. Or are you acting with arrogance and control and all the BS that goes with it just to show how big a person you are. C’mon, change your attitude and intend good interactions with joy and truth and honesty and of course, integrity.
Pluto, Sun and Moon in Capricorn is flowing gracefully with power. Use it to your advantage. With Uranus square the New Moon in Capricorn it is time to walk away from relationships that no longer serve any purpose, jobs that are feeling negative and your own inner turmoil. If you are unable to resolve it, then let it go now. it is building up for April which will implode if you are unwilling to do this now and take small mountain goat leaps up the mountain. April is when the next exact square (conflict) of Pluto and And stop being so selfish! There are many out there who are. It becomes more obvious every day. And it will rear its ugly head shortly. Mercury conjunct the New Moon is harmonious and gives us that new perspective which I mentioned earlier.
This New Moon occurs on the first day of the year of 2014. How lucky you are to be able to address the demons within in the next couple of weeks and rid your body and mind and emotions of all the toxic elements which you have collected along the way. Continue doing this if you have already begun it way back when; and those of you who have given little thought to this, I highly suggest you get on the bandwagon. It is so important to do this now. This New Moon is about being polite and having good manners. Oh, you forgot this? How about consideration and compassion along with love to others who are important to you? If you cannot show love then walk away from those who mean little to you. Tolerance is better than criticism.
Those affected most intensely are you who are born between December 25 and January 4 and also anyone who has planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn between 6 and 15 degrees.
The Lakota Sweat Lodge card that I pulled for the New Moon is about abundance. It comes when you accept it within. Give thanks for all that is provided to you and be able to release all that has been received. If you are fearful of not having enough, that is what you will continue to create. It is about all gifts of abundance including love, companionship, teachings, nourishment and guidance not just the material. “I acknowledge with gratitude the flow of God’s abundance through my life.”
Sending you many wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR filled with joy, abundance, prosperity, LOVE and compassion, tolerance, patience and good friendships along with loving interactions. Thank you for all you do and your support. Until again. Love, Jan
Here we go again. Are you so programmed and conditioned that you would rather hear about the threats regarding al Qaeda which are supposedly going to take place in August? Now please understand that this credible threat may be a fear factor to ensure that your joyful month is ruined if you get pulled into it. It makes no sense since according to the “top WH sources” al Qaeda no longer has the capability to do what is being said about it. And then there is the A-Rod circus and impending suspension. Are you being entertained enough? The darkness abounds among us and keeps trying its darndest to regulate, control, restrict and hogtie your ability to see who you really are and how to manifest the best life you can imagine. Did you know that it was Friendship Day on this past Sunday? You can choose the darkness or the joys of life.
How many people around you are confused and out-of-control in their thinking or behavior? Gee whiz, some friendship day it was. And what does this have to do with the NEW MOON in LEO? Well, it certainly shows me some of the more negative traits pertaining to that sign. EGO…EGO…EGO and more EGO. Take a look at your friends and ask yourself how many are true friends. Are they there for you totally, fully, completely? Friends are hard to come by these days. Many in this world have become self-absorbed and see little beyond their own circle of family and associates. So, does your friendship matter? That’s only the tip of the iceberg. A true friend loves you for you not for what you own, think, feel or otherwise. They are there for you no matter what goes on. Be blessed if you have one, maybe two in your lifetime. How would it be without that individual or two in your life? I celebrate you and your true friends.
The NEW MOON in LEO occurs Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 5:51pm EDT in 14 degrees 25’. This NEW MOON truly gives you the ability to take a risk and open to an opportunity that may present itself right in the hour that the New Moon takes place. From 5:21pm EDT to 6:21pm EDT is a prime time. So keep your eyes open and if there is something you truly wish upon a star to happen, then go for it, intend it and watch what happens. The timeframe is very short so do pay attention. The NEW MOON in LEO is about childlike play, creative activities and lots of applause. Find your enthusiasm and make it infectious for others to join in whatever you are doing. This dynamic energy will light up your chart in whichever house it occurs. Begin your dream right now at this time. Reach out and connect to whom you need to speak. Allow the love to flow from your heart to that special someone. Do it now at this time. See the difference you make in someone’s life. If you need to change something, now is the time to do so. How will you incorporate the energy from this NEW MOON in LEO? Will you choose to be having fun, being generous, magnanimous, confident, warm and caring or will you let your ego run the show? This is a perfect time to intend and do it right then and see how you can change your life for the better. August 8 into August 9 is a very beneficial time for creating something new.
When the Full Moon takes place in 2 weeks it may be shortly after that you see the results of your intentions. Open your eyes to see what it is showing you. A bit of a bummer though- Chiron inconjuncts (150 deg.) the SUN/MOON in Leo. The Sun may not seem to shine as brightly at this time since Chiron is asking you to adjust something. The rays may be a bit dimmer but things are still moving on. Perhaps you will see the need to adjust something in order to create more flow. No hesitation please. Just make that adjustment and walk through it.
NEW MOON in LEO is perfect for enhancing romantic relationships. Stop hiding behind the door and reach out to your lover, partner. It is such a special time so remember to use this energy wisely. If you are expanding a creative enterprise please know that it can bring you many accolades if you rev it up now. Or if you are just beginning a new creative project, let the magic flow and you will notice that many are interested in your workings. You can shine in whatever you do with this New Moon. Go for it. Be a Leo for the next 24 hours and be the star you were meant to be. Remember that NEW MOON in LEO loves to dance. Tango anyone?
If you are a Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius or Taurus with planets from 12 degrees to 19 degrees of those signs, you will feel this NEW MOON in LEO more intensely and significantly. Those of you who have planets in those signs will also feel some effect. With Mercury coming into Leo on Thursday, August 8, you will find yourself able to persuade and convince others more at this time. There is a truly great trine from retrograde Uranus to the New Moon. Expecting a declaration of love, dear one, you may get it. What about a big surprise…good possibility. Enjoy your life and go out and party. This New Moon conjuncts my progressed ascendant. Is this a new look or new way to communicate or maybe just getting my message out there? I need to watch for being too sensitive. Really?
This is a time to shine your light like any Leo does. Let the love come forth fully from within your heart so others feel it. This is a time of authenticity. You are the star of your galaxy and show people your heartfelt truth. Uranus trine the New Moon as I said earlier will help to wake up some of you from your slumber. Just a reminder that Uranus still squares Pluto and that will try to drag you into a hassle if you allow it to do so. There is still much calm and flowing going on, so stop the disruption before it gets a grip on your life.
Before I sign off I would like to share a short meditation from the Lakota Sweat Lodge cards. “I release myself into the moment, into the flow of time, events, cycles and emotions and I find grace and fertile ground along the way. Leave the past behind and take only that which will nurture your future creatively.”
May your blessings be many! Have a glorious NEW MOON time. Until again. Love, Jan
