A new year is upon us, dear ones, and I hope many of you have decided to change your eating habits as I mentioned in the previous post. If you haven’t done so, start now to look at how you can become your fully healthy self in the new year. This is a great time to start that process of change. This is a time of action not sitting back and wishing it. 2013 is a year of truly looking at yourself, your life and making a decision to move forward. Do you really think that someone else is going to make the changes for you? The world around you may be swirling and turbulent. People are angry about the gun control issues. There are others just plain angry about things going on, like unnecessary wars or the rising taxes or the drones. My father was right when he spoke about H.G. Wells “The Shape of Things to Come”. We are living that story and continue to do so.
Pluto in Capricorn brings us the controls of government showing up, but it also indicates there is much clearing out of the top ranks. It can help bring you to a big evolutionary/revolutionary leap. Pluto helps you to clear out that which is no longer necessary but if you resist, it may be deeply disturbing. Pluto’s intense energy continues to affect you in many ways. Why do you choose to ignore it? Use it to manifest your dreams into reality. What is affecting your ability to do something? How does it keep you from bringing your best to the table? Show me what is keeping you trapped in that bubble of inactivity. If you truly choose it, then do it. Stop sitting there living in the past and complaining about the past. Gee whiz, get over it already. Too blunt? Then show me your joyousness that comes from you walking your talk and finding the mission you came to do. If you are your authentic self than you will have no time to game play or moan about what should have, would have, could have been. Joy will be your mantra. Many of you are very awake yet continue to live on the wheel. What fear keeps you from being free in your heart? What lesson is it trying to teach you?
The New Moon in Capricorn at 21 deg 45’ is today, Friday, January 11, 2013 at 2:44 PM EST (SUN conjunct MOON in Capricorn) brings us the energy to choose a new direction or some changes on the path you have already chosen. It is a Capricorn moment grounded in the earth and the Sun/ Moon are joined there by Mercury, Pluto and Venus (the love planet just entered on the 8th). New Moon in Capricorn speaks of your resources whether they are financial ones or your creative talents and gifts. This is a good time to reassess and regroup your resources. Where will you allow these resources to take you? How will your creative resources impact your new direction in life? Assess your finances and see how to manifest more money if you need it.
With Mercury conjoining the New Moon in Capricorn ponder this. Who is whispering in your ear? Are you hearing what is being said or is it a trickster trying to distract you from the truth? Are you actually paying attention to what is being said? Do you actually see what is happening or are you being so pulled in by the senses that it really is an illusion? What did you say? I cannot hear it. Say it again. Why don’t I see you? Where are you? You just do not want me to hear what you are saying. I know that’s what it is. Guess what? That trickster energy will stir up your emotions and your mind if you refuse to be attentive. Turn down the sound. Why do you play that music so loud? On and on you go. This New Moon in Capricorn is about letting go of the past. Gee whiz, is it about that again? Still? That deceptive music keeps coming at me, turn it down already. Yep. It is even more so at this time of the new moon. You are so stuck and you just continue to stay stuck. What is so great about being back there in the past? Stop clinging already. You can still play that music but please purge out the dark side and work on beginning to let go. It is time to put that creativity to use which is another way to cleanse all the demons of the past. Use that artwork, the painting, the drawing, the photography, the music or whatever you create, to help you let go of anything that no longer feels good in your life and is deterring your progress on your path. Take that cosmic leap already. Saturn will support your efforts.
This New Moon in Capricorn affects those of you who have planets at 21 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn within about 3 degrees either side. I have Mars which is squared by the New Moon which tells me to watch for rash actions or too much intense energy and also to avoid arguing and tone. Oh, that tone, how much it is gone from my words. Let me hide under the bed. What it means is the tone of my piano will be too loud and the neighbors will come by and tell me to cut the noise. If that is all, I can deal. Or is it the tone of this post today? There is a secret bubbling up within you…listen to the words that come from your heart and the leap will be rewarding. Oh, did you say you wanted to just watch? That’s ok. Soon, the light bulb will flash and you will allow the turnaround. Good job.
Since Venus has entered Capricorn you have the option of bringing much integrity, mutual respect and a no nonsense approach to relationships. If you wish to build a long-lasting connection, now is the time. For those already in a heartfelt relationship, continue to create on the foundation that is already present. Actions speak louder than words in the next few weeks. Physical intimacy is important with Venus in Capricorn. It is rock solid. And with Mercury conjoining the Sun/Moon in Capricorn truth is more important than ever.
Sing and chant on the New Moon especially if you are ruled by the Moon or have strong planetary connections to it. AND this is really important to remember. WATCH WHAT YOU SAY out loud during this time frame, unless you truly wish it to happen. Watch the trickster talking in your ear. How great it makes you feel!
Talk to me dear ones and tell me that you are allowing changes to take place so your path is clear for you to manifest whatever you choose. Clear your mind and come from your heart and see the difference. Many blessings to all of you and thank you for reading this blog. I am most grateful. Have a wonderful week. Until again. Love, Jan
Uh oh! If you have any major secrets or are telling big whoppers (lies) you may find your life in an upheaval with the NEW MOON Eclipse which is occurring today, November 13, 2012 at 5:08 EST at 21degrees 57 minutes Scorpio. Scorpio is an intense sign and deeply emotional. Eclipses, especially Solar ones bring to the surface things in your life that you may find difficult to look at and try to suppress them. Not happening. Just face whatever shows up and open to walking through it.
It is interesting to note that the scandal which has affected CIA Director Petraeus in the last few days has occurred right before the New Moon Eclipse. This is why I say to you pay attention because the stars are on the money. What happened with David Petraeus? His world has collapsed because his extramarital affair has surfaced. Oh really. Pluto, the planet of transformation, is transiting his Chiron, the wounded healer. Chiron in your birth blueprint represents where you are most vulnerable and wounded. I don’t have a chart for Petraeus but I do know that Pluto has been hovering over his Chiron. So, it looks like it transformed and brought to the surface some old wounds and hidden things that need to be healed with the help of old New Moon Eclipse energy. He is a Scorpio and the news happened right around his birthday of November 7. How uncanny, huh? Pluto is squaring Uranus generally so it continues to open up the old paradigm and expose something new. And since the Sun and Moon are in Scorpio at the New Moon time it shows up as sex, sex, lies, secrets. Soap opera anyone?
What else does this NEW MOON Eclipse bring? Depending on your chart is whether this energy will affect you in an intense way. What planets do you have at almost 22 degrees Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius? Or in which house does it fall? No matter what is going on the bottomline is first that it can be a new beginning wherever it occurs. It continues to communicate the message dear ones that you need to be your authentic self no matter what is going on in your life. The Scorpio New Moon Eclipse can take you down in a big way (like Petraeus) or lift you into a new direction. Which would you life? Then be authentic in your dealings with everyone…always. There are many mean people surfacing lately and that is what you need to avoid. Treat people kindly without that mean edge. Or if you are narrow-minded, please give it up already. Reacting with mean words or closed mind will only bring on the Scorpion sting. And Scorpio may forgive but never forgets. Keep that in mind.
This New Moon aspects the North Node or Dragon’s Head and it may bring good fortune to some of you or the new direction as mentioned previously. New starts are good now and the old has to be let go. I have said this many times and there are some of you who just refuse to understand how important it is to step out of the past and walk on the path that brought you into this lifetime. You need to release those entrenched demons which continue to plague your existence and with Chiron going direct tomorrow, you can begin to do so. With Neptune already direct a couple of days ago it is time to weave the spirit back into your daily living and get on with your truth. The need for holding on to any people or things which have no relevance to your new direction is now over. Release and move on. You will know shortly why I say this. With the South Node in Taurus you need to reconsider your values and ownership. It is time to use the energy to think about partnering and moving forward in cooperative efforts and merging the power with others.
Since Mercury is still retrograde until the 26th and the only major aspect on the New Moon is Neptune squaring (in conflict) with Mercury communication may get a bit murky. The fog of Neptune can bring deception to the forefront. You need to be able to discern the truth or Neptune will confuse the issues. Listen carefully. Discernment is the key. Mercury continues retrograde motion into Scorpio hours after the New Moon Eclipse. The lightness and truth of Sagittarius is now brought into the deep dark crevices of Scorpio. You begin to transform the hidden facets that no longer serve you. It begins to shine that light into the depths of your psyche.
Do we have any victims out there? Are you one? Do you like to play that part in the drama of life? Victimhood can easily emerge from the depths of your mind during the New Moon energy. Is this really how you choose to go through life? That’s too much drama for me. The worst of the victim feelings may be terribly blatant. Are you going to continue to blame everyone and everything in your life for your choices? Is this you? C’mon already dear ones, start etching out a new and better thinking pattern. The emotional letting go of your demons is available to you. Stop blocking your way. Do you really need negative attention creating chaos around you on your new path? No one can control anything in life. Oh, yes, you can try your darndest, but it will be in vain. Give it up.
With Neptune squaring Mercury retrograde the chances of lots of toxicity being present…ok, it is already surrounding you, but it will still be present with full effects. Watch for sudden allergies or autoimmune system issues. More toxins are in food, water and environment. If you consume alcohol at this time, one drink may feel like 20. Keep your eyes open (all them including the 3rd eye). Is it real or is it an illusion. Keep your eyes open so that you can discern whether what you are hearing or seeing is true. This is a wonderful time for creativity even with the toxins swirling in your life. Creative writing and poetry are especially favored. Lock yourself in the tower and create a masterpiece. Art works too!
Whichever house this New Moon Eclipse falls in is where you are most likely to have to make a change for the better. Protect yourself from any mean angry people wherever you may be. This can occur for the next 6 months. In my own chart it shows up in my 6th house. Fitness program here I come. EEK. And probably some changes in my daily life occur. Try opening your heart and letting unconditional love move through you. Even though it may be an intense time let the Light shine brightly within so others can feel your truth.
Many blessings dear ones and start planning to take the next small leap after Mercury goes direct on the 26th of November. Until again. Love, Jan
TO ponder: Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time. -don Miguel Ruiz
