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

Are you one of those individuals who are stuck in the past? Well, hold onto your hats because the past is no longer here. Were you aware of this? Not trying to be facetious! Just wanted to get your attention. And you are paying attention, aren’t you? Great. How many of you had to review, regurgitate and revamp those ideas and thoughts. Even your feelings were affected. Those buried emotions which held you back are now in process of being released so that healing can take place. Right? Or do you continue to hold on for dear life to an old thoughtform, belief, pattern, person, job, lifestyle or anything else that fits no longer in your new “you” way of being. What am I talking about, you ask?
Guess what, Pluto is now direct as of September 16, 2011, slowly moving, but in direct motion. And boy what a show it has been. And several aha moments happened for dear ol’ me. Wow, can there really be this much intensity in one’s life? And it keeps pulling away all the layers until it gets to the deepest layer of truth within. And it will get there, I know that. And so do you who are feeling it more than others. Any of you who have planets plus or minus 4 degrees in the following signs are more directly affected – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces (a bit more flow). So the bottom-line is think about your chart or if you don’t know ask me or go toAstro.com and see what planet is being aspected if any. If your ride has been rough and filled with pressure and intensity then you know you must be having a Pluto transit. Of course it may not be as intense as it could be since you may have allowed Pluto to take charge. Pluto is about manipulation and control in the negative and clearing and regenerative healing in the positive. Pluto will push at you until you get it. Get what, you ask? That you need to let go and let Pluto do the work of the transformation in whatever area this is occurring.
If you are in a relationship and there is fear involved, the relationship gets stuck until you trust that the process is working without your interference. Pluto can bring a tug of war in relationships and it ends up with the person who is more controlling actually letting go of the rope and the other falling flat and not knowing what happened. Didn’t you see the signals? Pluto brings anger, obsession, control/manipulation, reactionary responses, emotional outbursts which all say you need to allow the feelings to come up. If someone says you shouldn’t express these feelings, run out the door quickly. I know that some of you may say that you need to control everything about emotions. Yes, you certainly do since it is inappropriate to go nuts in a meeting or on the roads or even on the phone. In a Pluto transit you DO need to allow yourself the opportunity to have emotional expression, otherwise it may just really pull the rug out from under you by creating unhealthy conditions in your body and mind. There I said it. Talk to a friend or a counselor – someone who actually listens and hears you. Pluto takes no prisoners and if you know this in advance, the intensity will not throw you against the wall. “Never apologize for showing feeling, when you do so you apologize for the truth.” (Disraeli)
Let me give you some examples. Pluto is sextile right on my Chiron (wound), which is the place I am most wounded. My wound (Chiron) shows up in my 5th house of love and creativity. So guess what, I have a deep wound regarding love and secrets (Scorpio). It also affects my creative self-expression which has helped me dissolve fears and patterns which were blocked. In part, the blog writing has helped me walk through all the wound releasing that had a major hold on me. Sextiles are 60 degrees apart so it is not a really negative aspect BUT it is Pluto and if something else is aspected it brings out intensity even more. In my case it is inconjunct (150 degrees) my Saturn and ready to touch my progressed Venus.
What in the world does all this mean? Basket case personified? With Pluto going through my partnership house, an issue has arisen and brought to the surface long buried issues of partnership/love wounds (Chiron in 5th) through communication (Saturn in my 3rd). These unhealed wounds are surfacing now because they are ready to be processed and released. It came to me no matter how much I prayed and meditated, they still existed. Why, because they weren’t ready for assimilation. These were long buried wounds that brought anguish to my heart and to my psyche. Yes, they were coming up and I had too really look at them for healing to take place. Tears have been constant for a few weeks until I truly realized that it was just a planetary cycle and I was ok. Then a vision came to me and I saw how things are changing and no matter how difficult it has been, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Of course shortly it hits my progressed Venus. I know a few others in my circle who are experiencing this aspect of Pluto/Venus and it continues to hit them hard. What does this mean exactly? Is this the kind of relationship you really want to have in your life? Is it worth the effort to take action on it? For those with the Pluto aspecting their Venus, give up theold patterns in love because they will create havoc in your life. Some who are together are destined and it is only about old releases that will bring new beginnings. Some of you will meet a manipulative individual who may just want to just have a sexual interaction instead of a full relationship. Watch for financial issues (depends on your chart) cropping up. And that’s the Pluto story for today. Maybe that cosmic leap is there when the road takes a turn.
Let us all empower ourselves as we march toward Friday, September 23, 2011 the day of the Autumnal Equinox. Look for a blurb later week. Thank you for all of you and many blessings too. Until again. Love to you and yours, Jan
