NEW MOON in CANCER, July 8, 2013 -Renew Yourself to Nurture Others

Hello again. Have you had enough of the carnival atmosphere yet? Maybe some of you like the crazed atmosphere of the world situation. You know what, it stinks. If I would have written this the other day when I had a major cathartic type of realization, I could have won the Pulitzer Prize (or the opposite). Just joking. Wherever you live I hope you are having clear days with puffy clouds and no chemsoup skies. I am so tired of the humidity and the foul air, I want to scream. That wouldn’t be a good thing since my neighbors will complain. So, Egypt has been in an uproar, Snowden is hanging in the shadows somewhere, and Syria is being blasted. Floods are overtaking various parts of this country and India and many other places. Fires ravage the western US. Yes, the world is on the brink. It is beyond 1984. Does anyone out there choose to wake up and put an end to the darkness? And since the New Moon is a water sign…is that the next area of our lives that will be taken over completely? I have come from a positive place most of the time in my life and sometimes when I see what is going on, if it is beginning to be difficult for me to stay in that place, then I wonder how it is for those who have no jobs, little food and minimal funds with which to do anything. Vent done! Onward to the watery New Moon.

The NEW MOON in CANCER occurs on Monday, July 8, 2013, at 3:14am EDT,16 degrees 18’ and is all about family and relationships and replenishing your emotional waves. Sun in Cancer is moody, imaginative, sensuous, intuitive, self-absorbed and nurturing. But don’t cross them because they will hold a grudge until the end of time. They need space when they are creating and believe me they have movies going in their heads most of the time. This SUN/MOON Cancer influence is all about reaching within and regrouping and maybe you will come up with a new creative venture or a new beginning in whatever house it is located in your chart. The Crab has a hard time letting go of anything. But just imagine at one time centuries ago, Cancer was ruled by the Scarab Beetle. That would certainly create a different image of how this sign is represented. Anyway, the Crab loves hiding away at times and this may be a time when depending on how your life is, you may find time to just keep out the world’s noise and take time for you. Or you may just want to rekindle an old relationship within the family or with someone who is like family. There are several people I know who have this conjunct their SUN in Cancer and I have it opposite my Moon in Capricorn. New ways to do things and a change in how to approach others. Good for abundance and success. It is possible to start new ventures or just establish secure foundations for the future.

There are exceptional aspects for healing within now. What do you need to heal within your life? What emotions are still clouding your vision keeping you from taking that leap? And that leap will come but not before you clear out those cobwebs from the past and dig deep for release and healing. I have noticed that for me it is about values and self-worth so I am ready to regenerate this area of my life so I can clear out any root issues which may keep me from freely moving forward. I now am focusing on my talents and skills which will help to create more money for me. Once I can do this, healing can take place. It is time to set the intention for whatever area of your life that is being influenced. You will know by meditating even if your don’t have access to your chart at this time.

There is still a grand trine (positive) with Saturn in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer. This will continue to affect you but has no connection to the NEW MOON in Cancer. Jupiter has arrived in Cancer about a week ago and will be there for a year. What this means is that family situations, MONEY/abundance, home, and security will be expansive for the next year and with the New Moon giving it a big jump start, new beginnings can take place. What are you going to do that is done in a new way? How will you radically change your life to better it? This is important to remember in the next months. That new idea, as crazy as it may be, can take you to a new level of success in a blink of the eye. Take advantage of the good aspects that are here right now and put that intention out there. Chiron trining the NEW MOON in Cancer may bring up old issues to be healed. Open to it. Continue to come from your heart and reach deep within for your love, so nurturing can take place. And this is also a time when sexuality is more important. And if you have no partner, then please use that passion to develop new ideas or creations to share with everyone.

Keep in mind with Mercury retrograding through Cancer you need to express your feelings and regenerate the communication with others which has fallen by the wayside. No signing important documents until Mercury goes direct later in the month. I see that Sphinx asteroid is also near the NEW MOON in Cancer. The time has come to all of you to meet your challenges upfront instead of running and hiding like many of those with Cancer Sun or Moon do. Sphinx will help you take command and move forward otherwise you will continue to be stuck in your limited belief patterns. Take advantage of this opportunity. And don’t forget there is still a difficult aspect between Pluto and Uranus which is affecting the NEW MOON in Cancer and this will continue to stir up your emotions.

All of you who have planets in Cancer from 12 degrees to 20 degrees will be affected most intensely. Also any planets at the same degrees in Aries, Libra and Capricorn will be influenced.
Watch for floods wherever you are in the next month after this New Moon and once Jupiter joins that New Moon point. Jupiter is about expansion and since it is in a water sign that will be the norm in the coming months.
Thank you all for reading and your support. May your blessings be many at the NEW MOON in CANCER. Until again. Love, Jan

NEW MOON /Eclipse in Sagittarius November 25, 2011- RISE BEYOND THE EGO MIND

Trumpets are sounding. The New Moon in Sagittarius partial solar eclipse at 2deg 37min. is on November 25, 2011 at 1:10am EST. Have we got a beauty for you? It is fiery and has upbeat energy which brings us to another round of new beginnings and some endings. Those who have Sagittarius as a birth sign are filled with optimism, free-spirited, love adventure/travel and are straightforward to the max. They love to be the philosopher and explore the inner workings of themselves and others.

 Ok now, let’s take a look at eclipses briefly. Past behavior patterns need to be shut down because that is what the eclipse is asking you to do. Old beliefs and patterns which block your growth need to be let go here. Other energies come into play at this time. For instance there is someone I know who has the eclipse conjunct Eros in the chart. This would be about heart matters that need to be addressed and become the new persona instead of staying in the old worn out place of self. It is about renewing the passion. We have come to time which is set for adventure with the grand trine and eclipse. Are you ready to go into uncharted waters? Ol’ man Jupiter is in charge here. And he is positive and upbeat so if you are not, he will not like it. This is no time for any BS. It is time you give up the crap. Period. It will take you down if you take it with you on the journey that is beginning right now. The past is over and done with. Save yourself a lot of trouble and dump it. Oh ye of little faith who fail to see the truth. It is imperative that you just do it and walk past all the garbage that you have been collecting through eons. Dragging all that junk with you will block your way and is that what you truly desire to have happen? This is the kind of energy that if you are so inclined, watch what you wish for because it will come to you in a big way. All kidding aside, this is serious stuff and I suggest you think about that intention because it will come to you. Now remember, there may be some sluggish delays due to Mercury retrograde. Get to near the end of the post.

 Let’s take a look at the New Moon in Sagittarius a bit closer. If you have any planets or asteroids in the early degrees of the signs of Sagittarius or Gemini, Virgo or Pisces, this New Moon energy will intensify energy of the planets located in those early degrees. Of course, there also may be some effect for any Scorpio late degrees. There is someone I know who has the New Moon on Valentine in their solar return chart. What a wonderful time for reaching out in love. What are you waiting for? This is a time to say the heck with those others who really have no interest in you anyway. Go for the gusto and reach deep into your heart and let whoever know it in a big way. For all the rest of you out there, this is a time when something you do may not meet with the sanction of others around you. Darn. Guess what it’s time to do it anyway. YES it is. And those changes that you are resisting are coming on quickly. For goodness sakes, leap into them. There is much planning in this New Moon period and once you find your plan designed, you may find it takes a while to get it off the ground. It is just a bit lazy on some level.

Do you want to create your destiny? The New Moon in Sagittarius is about rising above the ego mind. Now is the time to choose whether you are on the path of ego or the path of the Spirit. Once you make that decision things begin to fall into place in your lives and you will begin to achieve balance. I know everyone gets into ego at times, yet if you decide to listen to your intuition, watch how your life changes and your true path may actually appear to you. Are you ready? Uranus has some input also on this New Moon. It may bring unexpected changes and if you are prepared for them, then so much the better. I feel they may be just what is needed. Remember better to know that there may be some changes rather than to be caught off guard.

 Mercury retrograde is back. Oh joy! It went into retrograde tonight (November 23) and will stay retro until December 13. Not a good thing for your holiday shopping. Electronics is the worst thing to buy before the 13th. And avoid signing those important documents/agreements. Watch any major travel during this retrograde period.

 Let’s take a quick look at other things happening in this time frame. Panacea and Pluto aspect tells you to get to the root of the problem and this will help to heal you and then your life can take major leaps to improving. In my personal chart I have the New Moon on my South Node which says to me that releasing the past issues is so important. It is also trine my Saturn which keeps me be professional at work and on track. Also I have a Juno transit ready to hit my vertex in the next couple of days. I think it is about a more permanent connecting link.

 I have decided to pick a Pages of Shustah card to pull together this post. It is the Gnomes card. Very interesting. Quoting from the Shustah book site it says:

“The yellow gnomes card has the value of the dynamic  power of inner developing of emotional concentration. It is literally the transmutation – the deep inner change that comes with work on one’s self. The gnomes in the card have expressions of great effort and grimace, but they bring forth nuggets of gold. … take heart with this message, and forge on; even in the face of criticism and not exactly warm approval for my efforts- I will gain more than what I perceive I have lost! I will come out a winner in spite of it all…”

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (those in the US) and enjoy your coming weekend. I am thankful for those who read my blog. Stay in the moment because the efforts you are putting out there are beginning to come back to you. And remember that old junk, negative thoughtforms and being resistant are undermining your truth. This New Moon in Sagittarius is about positive thinking and behavior. Again thank you. Blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
