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
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
