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
Did the eclipse get to you too? How did it affect you? Did you feel any shifting? I know I did. It is unfortunate that those of us in the Eastern part of America didn’t get the opportunity to see it. Heard it was quite a sight. So, it is almost Winter Solstice time when the days are the shortest these few days. I think on December 25 the move forward to longer days begin again. Gee whiz, is summer far behind? Seriously. Now is the time to take a big deep breath and stop running around with last minute anything. Can you just stop for one moment? Doesn’t it feel good to just savor the moment? Oh, c’mon dear ones you can do it. And that Mercury retrograde did a number on a lot of you and me too. Not as much as usual but made me a tad restless. As I said last time, it went direct and we can go back to communicating effectively.
Venus goes into Aquarius on today, December 20. If you are single go out there and connect through friends. Who knows who may show up. Those who are in a relationship, it is time to start thinking about doing things together instead of falling asleep on the chair or ranting about things that matter not. Are you a bit lopsided relationship-wise? Then now is the time to take a good look and see how to come up with creative ways to balance it out. Yes, there may be some issues that arise but it is not about issues now, it is about really being friends no matter what kind of connection you have-marriage, single, whatever. Look deep and see what you can do for each other yet have that freedom to walk your path too and vice versa. How becoming more selfless instead of selfish? What a thought!!!And for goodness sakes, there is fun in the air. And what kinds of magic will that bit of spicy fun manifest? Is your relationship becoming codependent? Abusive? There is healing coming if you allow it. Stop judging. Time to let it go already. What do you need and what do you choose? Then ask and it just may happen. Since things are speeding up, watch what you intend because it will happen.
And here comes the NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN. This is a new moon which leads us into the New Year of 2012. What is this NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN at 2 degrees 34’ at 1:06pm on December 24, 2011 going to bring to you? Well, it certainly will bring new beginnings and lots of unexpected events, surprises, big changes. Really big changes are imminent. The moon is square Uranus in Aries. Oh boy! Better get out the Natural Calm for some of you to keep you grounded. There was a T-square last spring into summer with Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn in Libra, and Uranus in Aries. My head is hurting just thinking about it. A whopper of a time and so glad it faded out. The New Moon is linked to that T-square. Jupiter is also linked to this in a nice pretty trine. Hurrah! That gives us some better feelings and brings us some gifts/rewards (once it goes direct) that may not have shown up last summer because of all the challenges that appeared and kept going and going and just drained some of you. Whew! Maybe someone will even support that biz you have been looking to build. Or you may just look at some resource-building and more financial finesse in your life. This New Moon is also conjunct Pluto. Keep that focus in whatever you are doing but please that one extra step over the line leads to obsession. Stop. Focus please. I can easily go to obsession any day or night. Well, not all the time. <grin> Capricorn is about structure in all parts of your life. It is about goals. (Oh no, that is my middle name.) How can you flow toward something without a goal to intend? Never figured that one out. If you are looking to achieve something powerful then by all means set your intentions on this New Moon. Capricorn likes structure but with Pluto sitting on the New Moon, some of those structures may fall down unexpectedly or they may become really powerful. Depends on your perspective and approach to the matter at hand. You may choose to create new adventures and take them into the New Year. The New Moon is in my 7th house of relationships. Now that means new personal starts or could be biz partnerships. We shall see. But then that famous Uranus squares from my 11th house. What surprises will enter my life through friends? Or will it just be more nerve-jangling gobbledygook?
Those who are affected by the New Moon are any of you who have the last 3 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces and the first 6 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and of course Capricorn. Intense it may be. And I already know some of you are going to choose to hide under the bed. I suggest otherwise. Since this is a G rated blog, need I say more? If you have planets around those degrees, they too will be affected in some way. And those unexpected turns of events may take you right out of your old way of thinking. What a grand thought! You just may have to look at why you have lived under such oppressive conditions. You like it that much?
Has the consciousness shifted? That is what many are asking due to the arrival of 2012 shortly. Many more of you are awakening to a new reality. Some like to be stuck in the muck of olden days (pre 21st century). What do you do to change your view for those who are in the muck? Join those who have taken the leap into the entrancing new world and see how satisfying it can be. Oh, there may be still lessons to learn and issues to release but it sure is better if you are all together here. And stop listening to the junk from the mainstream media. Get a clue already. They lie and tell stories. All networks do it. So start looking within to know the truth because you won’t find it outside yourself. The Divine awaits within for recognition. And it stays hidden until you let go of that fear. LET IT GO!!!
May the holidays (those who celebrate) bring you good cheer and blessings more than ever. Take some time for inner reflection and get those intentions out there. There is a special feeling in the air. Thank you one and all for your support of my blog and until again. Patience wins the day. Peace and Love, Jan
Are you feeling things shifting in your life? I know that I am feeling it. Cannot exactly put my finger on it yet there is this knowing that the energy is changing and you and I are going to begin to see things more clearly and truth will win the day. How many of you have been hanging on tightly to old habits, patterns and things? C’mon, you know you have been. A majority of you, including me, have yet to truly release all the junk. Oh, it is happening in bits and pieces and some of you have no interest in doing so due to extreme conditioning and little regard for self- preservation and joyous connecting. No change can take place within our hearts and mind unless you choose it. And so many of you refuse it. So, what is all this gobbledygook that I am trying to put in perspective?
Took a look at this hanging on I have been doing. I figured out the other day that I was still angry about something. Well, who isn’t at times? No, this was a revelation because I knew I was angry at myself for allowing things to happen in my life for which I was unprepared. So, what did I do? Other then screaming a bit about why I have failed to recognize this truth, I decided to pray and meditate on it to see what the bottomline was. Once I was positive this was the issue, I asked for clearing. I also did a spiritual write and burn for it. You write the thought you wish to release, i.e. I (name) release (my anger at myself) or whatever you wish to release in the name of I AM that I AM to be transmuted in Divine Light now. Let it be released and transmuted now. Thank you in the NAME OF I AM THAT I AM. Got the gist of it, do you? Then burn the paper in a small metal container –safety first please…let it go. See what happens then. Voila. Gone with the wind. It does work. Why did I do a write and burn when I knew it was cleared? It was kind of a mind trick that has worked for me in the past. And what is so interesting I hadn’t done a write and burn in years. Too much stuck brain going on obviously. This is one way to allow release. If you search you can find other ways that do not include on the couch psychiatry sessions for twenty years unless that is what you prefer. Of course, if you do not believe that write and burns are effective, then you are just playing with matches. <grin>
So, who amongst you has anger hidden so deeply that you ignore it and your choice to ignore the feeling because you feel it is politically incorrect to show your anger. It is how you use your anger that may lead you astray. Fear comes at times from buried anger. That anger pulls on you and you just brush it off and the more you do the more that fear starts popping up and the anger is boiling underneath ready to explode. I say, get ticked off and say what you have to say. You can be angry without your words being filled with poison. Of course, everybody seems to be angry, fearful or on the other hand, pretending to be balanced. So much negativity is rearing its ugly head and many of you are letting it pull you into its claws. There is rudeness on the roads, rudeness in restaurants, anger in relationships, fear in the workplace. People judge you because there is insecurity within them. They blame you for doing things that don’t appeal to them or maybe just because they can. Show your anger by pounding a pillow, then come to them and have the discussion and get over it already. If you cannot have the discussion then that is when control is an issue and who of you wants it their way. So, do you really choose to resolve the issue?
Anger oftentimes comes from childhood conditioning when you didn’t get your way. And some of you show it and others bottle it up. I hope the bottle doesn’t explode. OR it comes from a wound of some kind. What was that something that someone said to you or vice versa? It stung, it bit you, It made you hankering for a fight. You took it personal. Oh my. You actually took it personal. Even when you are angry with yourself as I was a short time ago, I took myself personally. Wow. Well, isn’t that a big opening? You recognized that you took it personal. Did they actually mean what they said or did you get hooked into the energy? Were you having a bad day or were they? If you got angry then your reaction spoke loudly. It wasn’t about them, now was it? Nope. You took it personal and so did I. “Personal importance or taking things personally, is the maximum expression of selfishness because we make the assumption that everything is about “me”.” –don Miguel Ruiz
These childhood patterns constantly come up when you are stressed or overtired or just refusing to pay attention to what your Higher Self is trying to tell you. Could it be that your ego is so darn comfortable that the fear arises within when any change is imminent? Changes are coming in a very big way. They can be positive changes or you can fear monger and believe the changes will be negative. Whatever you choose is ok with me. Just remember that to keep the joy flowing, the anger, recognized or hidden has to transmute itself to a more detached place. Anger kills you from the inside no matter how much you deny it. Ask for guidance as to how to release the anger. It works. Anger arises from many around me on the roads and in gatherings whether family, friends or workplace. If enough of you would release your hold on your woundedness and let it go and surround it in peace and joy and love (no this is not about the hippie 60s) then things would shift in a positive direction, maybe not all at once, but in small increments which would make a major difference. Try to let it go. I know it is possible to do so. Remember holding love present is the win/win place to be.
So do you think that the darkening abyss that shrouds the country is what is affecting you? Your homes may be in foreclosure; you see your investments dwindling and your mood is down. The PTB are running scared and it will get dark before the Light shines brightly. Who knows where the Europeans will land if the money goes down in the next 10 days. You wonder if the elite will begin an all out war so they can fulfill their greed. Nothing new here. Just the same old patterns to keep us locked into a system that died years ago. Get angry if you must. Use it wisely. Pull your heads out of the sand and see the truth. Are you ready for that leap? Some of you have done it already…others may leap today. Take down the illusions which have haunted you for years. Do pay attention. May the blessings shine upon you and thank you for you and your support. Until again. Love, Jan
