Happy Birthday Cosmic Leaping!! The first post was written on March 11, 2011. Cosmic Leaping is celebrating its 1st birthday in a couple of days. I started to write on that day because it was the day of the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I was overcome with sadness and compassion at the time for those people. I still feel that the truth is being withheld and so many more will perish down the road. Before I head to the Full Moon expression let me say that I had no idea what I was going to say as I wrote that first post. It was a bit limited in scope and I thought about how I can bring important points home to those of you who read this. In the next year I look to taking bigger leaps with whatever inspiration and truth that comes to me and share them with you. This has been a healing exercise for me. Onward we go.
The FULL MOON in Virgo at 18 degrees shows up at 4:40am EST according to Astrodienst. What can you expect this time around? I think it is a pretty calm Full Moon. Although there are other things going on, the basics say, it’s ok. It is Void of Course (no aspects to it) immediately following the opposition to the Sun in Pisces. Guess it is truly time to really really let go. Do you hear me? Should I say it again? LET GO!!!!! Oh ho! Haven’t you been thinking about this for awhile? It is time for you to release the old, the worn out, the past, the junk, the muck, and on and on you go. Dig deep and let it go. In fact do nothing and just LET GO! Ok, I know you heard me. It took me awhile to get it and I finally let go. Whatever is supposed to be in your life, will be there in appropriate timing. Not your time, God’s time. Get it. The Virgo Full moon is about healing and service. Moon in Virgo rules your digestion. It covers the home environment, organization, and details of daily living. So since the Sun is in Pisces rules over creative imagery, dream work, photography to just name some. This may be a good time to use your creative imagination to heal yourself. For some of you the idea of making over your home environment with a touch of color or new artwork or just rearrange the furniture will better suit you. How about organizing your home office or serving others in the community in some special way?
Along with the Full Moon we have other planets in the mix. Pluto in Capricorn (the big biz, corporate bandwagon) is in trine aspect to Mars in Virgo (retrograde) and Jupiter in Taurus. That’s a super Grand Trine to help deepen our experiences this month. It can bring lots more sensuality to your life. Magical stuff. On the other hand, there is a opposition Chiron/Neptune in Pisces and Mars in Virgo and squares North Node/South Node in Sagittarius /Gemini. Who is complaining around you? Who is criticizing you? Can it be an opportunity for you to heal? Virgo moon can be critical or a critic. Your choice! If it comes across as critical then there is anger underneath. If it is the critic, then it is looking at the finer points and helping to make it better for you. Now I know there can be really negative complaining and criticism also. Let’s hope not. Stop nagging if it is you that is doing this. Let it go.
Now is the time for you to break down the walls that hold you prisoner. Did you read that correctly? Yes, you need to break the barriers in all parts of your life at this time. Do it now before the wonderful planet of communication goes retrograde. Again? An old friend of mine says that planets do not retrograde and I said well, tell it to the ancients because that’s where it began. Mercury goes retrograde on the 13th of March. Woo hoo! Are you ready for that grand time to regroup again? Watch your words and your electronic gadgets. Who knows how they can get twisted. When Mercury is retrograde it is a time for patience. Oh really, not you? Well, be patient see what occurs. I know from experience that if you take a new job during Mercury retrograde that things change within the structure of the job sometime in the near future. Contracts/agreements signed bring changes also within the workings of it. Also, electronic purchases may break down or being to show quirks in their functions. It happens. Look before leaping in this area.
If you have any planet in the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces at 18 degrees, this Full Moon in Virgo will intensify your life in this area. Funny thing the Full Moon is squaring my Ascendant in Gemini which means that I may not be able to get my points across in a group. On the other hand, I am helped in this matter by Mars retrograde trining my Mercury for many months and this gives me the ability to analyze and look deeper and communicate my ideas with ease. I think the second aspect takes precedence over the first. Pallas Athena is opposing the Full Moon and conjunct the Pisces Sun. Lots of healing for me. Looking forward to it.
Dear ones, as Cosmic Leaping celebrates its first birthday I send you good wishes for bright tomorrows. And before you start leaping ahead into the future, it is better to stay in the NOW and enjoy each day as it happens. You have much to do to so that you keep your thoughts on Higher Consciousness so that more of you can raise your vibration and stop being part of the sheeple. Take time to celebrate you today and do remember that the past no longer serves you; it is time for living in the NOW ready to take that Cosmic Leap into a new energetic paradigm. Things are beginning to rapidly change and many hidden facets of our lives are ready to reveal themselves. Thank you as always for your support. May the Divine bless you always. 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
