Hey everyone it’s time for another New Moon/Solar Eclipse. This is a new eclipse cycle that begins in March. As you approach this energy there are many happenings around us out there in mainstream land. Former First Lady Nancy Reagan has passed on. Veiled assassination threats are being hurled at Mr. Trump. Over 20 big companies paid no taxes. Mrs. Clinton is pretending the emails do not exist. And a few weeks ago the Russian Patriarch met with Pope Francis regarding a secret. So the Patriarch went off to Antarctica to see what??? Enough of the craziness of the last couple of weeks!
The NEW MOON/Solar Eclipse arrives Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at 8:54 PM EST, 5:54 PM PST and 1:54 AM GMT (Wednesday March 9, 2016) in 18deg. 55’ Pisces. This is a truly a major turning point for all of you. In some ways it is the final clearing out of the sludge in your life and allowing it to be taken away by a roaring river right into the ocean. On the other hand it is giving you the opportunity for a new beginning as most new moons do. With it having an extra push to it with the Solar Eclipse it will provide you with openings for moving forward, taking leaps and getting back on track. That’s in case you have wavered from the main road of your life.
This is the first of four eclipses this year. There are a Solar and Lunar in March which are 2 weeks apart and also a Solar and Lunar in September. All are on the Pisces/Virgo axis. Remember that Pisces represents the collective unconscious. It contains the tales, myths and stories of all life. Pisces is about compassion, a natural empath. Pisces feels what others feel.
The configuration at this New Moon in Pisces is a T-square which includes Saturn in Sagittarius squaring it and Jupiter in Virgo in opposition. This T-square opens you to other’s opinions, perspective, agendas and noise. What will you do with this? Will you let them drag you down as you see a new direction looming through the open door? Will you allow them the upper hand so they convince you sit back and forget about manifesting your dreams? Will you stand in your power and say that you know what you are doing so no one sways you? It is time to become your own guru. Along with these aspects are the long-standing Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn both trine (good aspect) Saturn and Jupiter which is quite favorable.
With the Sun and Moon conjunct in Pisces there is Chiron (the wounded healer) also right with them. With this New Moon /Solar Eclipse there are some endings. Things and people who no longer need to be in your life will leave. No regrets please. This is a time for you to leap without anyone holding you back. If someone leaves it is due to the fact they no longer have a purpose in your life at this time. Let go. Strange dreams may occur and old memories rise from the depths of your psyche. Neptune is hanging in the background in a wide conjunction to the New Moon/Solar Eclipse. Is there confusion that has entered into an area of your life or is it just a dreamy time? You tell me.
You will know what you have to do when push comes to shove. Seriously, there is no turning back anymore no matter how many try to pull you back. Are you going to stop and let the boat capsize or are you going to let the waves take you on your journey to a land of new beginnings?
Since Pisces is a water sign there may be emotional issues and fantasies that play a big part at this time. It is filled with creative power that you will be amazed at what can surface from deep within. Tell me now before I go forward will you leap or choose to be a martyr? Think about it. That is also something that may come about if you just don’t pay attention and give in.
The energy around you can be chaotic and just like the ocean waves can bring a tsunami that knocks you about. Nothing is static it is always moving. Move about and let the craziness move by you or dive beneath the surface at high tide and find your way out of it. Once you find your way through this high tidal wave you can hone into your creative imagination which is a Pisces trait. Let the music rise within you or that painting find its way out there.
There is a wounded feeling coming through due to the Chiron energy involved. Chiron can show up with healing for you. The wound may be old and you may not recognize its presence and now it stares at you. It is time to face it. Then you can heal it and life changes for the better. It is not just your wound but also one of humanity. It also falls on the South Node of the Moon which may uncover old grief, sadness and ancient memories due to it being conjunct Chiron. As I have mentioned you need to finally release these burdens. And while you are at it please release any guilt, unworthiness, and old embedded thoughts about money and power.
At this time of the Solar Eclipse would be a good time to break from any addictive or poisonous relationships, Neptune could be gas-lighting you or Jupiter may be using flattery. Watch with whom you become enmeshed in relationships, business or otherwise. The veil between worlds is quite thin at this time.
Those most intensely affected are those who have birthdays around March 5- March 12; June 5-June 12; September 7-14 and December 5-12. Following are some tidbits for the SUN/rising signs and how the New Moon and Eclipse (6 month) affects you:
ARIES- Time to let go of any anger, sadness. You need to balance what is out of line with your inner and outer worlds. This will help to keep things going in work, service and health areas.
TAURUS- Gate to future opens. Why does it sound difficult? Get rid of hidden, fears and doubts. In the next 6 months friendships will deepen. You will look to bring service to humanity.
GEMINI–Turn over a new leaf for new beginnings to arrive. Embrace them and walk forward. You are being called to do your own thing. Shifts come across your career house. Be realistic.
CANCER-You need to integrate all items. It can be a clearing out cupboards or organizing at work. Health or daily routines are getting in way of possibilities. Be satisfied and efficient.
LEO-Changes come and you need to be ready also for transformation. Are you too responsible? Try to relax a little or a block shows up. Stop the doing and just be for now. Watch for confusion.
VIRGO–Possible new beginnings in relationships. Forgive and forget. Heal old wounds and be more assertive. You need to integrate you with home and loved ones. Is there someone new?
LIBRA—Are you ready to start a new health regime? Is there a new job or environment in the picture? If you think it then you get it. Transform your daily living. You need to rest and recoup.
SCORPIO—Let your intention be to create a more joyful life. What can you do to live more authentically? How about bringing more romance in your life? The time it is not about money.
SAGITTARIUS—What door are you closing on your home, family or past? You need to take charge and deal with what comes up. Positive opportunity comes if stay out an escape mode.
CAPRICORN—Time to create unity in your head and heal whatever needs healing. Meditation will help if you choose this. You seem to know what need to change and effectively let go.
AQUARIUS—What is going on with work and money? Time to turn over a new leaf and bring on the new beginning. Patience may be needed. What is going on beneath the surface? PISCES—Chapter ends and new start comes in. Align your intentions with the powerful energies. Write the down. Heal an old wound. Let go of suffering, Feel the joy and happiness.
This is a time to dream your vision into being. Plant that seed now. Thank you for reading and sharing. Be kind to yourselves as the new moon comes in. Have a wonderful week. Until again, Love, Jan
Listen to Going Beyond Astrology weekly on Tuesday nights at 9pm EST. Expanded info on the New moon/Solar Eclipse tonight. http://www.spiritualbistro.com/going-beyond-astrology.html
The Full Moon in Virgo approaches our daily living as I write this post. Prayers going out to Fiji since that Category 5 typhoon just hit there Saturday. By the way, were you aware that there are five states where the middle class has been affected the most-Nevada, Vermont, North Dakota, Ohio and Wisconsin? And the battle continues for the presidential candidates for each party. Do you really think any one of those individuals is going to do what is the best for this country? On another note, I just read for the zillionth time that they are saying that homeopathy doesn’t really do anything. Yep, that’s why the elitists use it and most individuals would rather take prescription medication.
As the previous new moon energy is building to the Full Moon in Virgo it has been a time of being able to manifest more easily and if you haven’t yet done so, intend it now as you are reading and see where it takes you. Whatever you put out there on February 8 will come to fruition if you stayed in the positive or negative thought process. The Full Moon in Virgo (Sun in Pisces) occurs on Monday, February 22, 2016 at 1:20pm EST, 10:20am PST and 6:20pm GMT in 3degrees 33’. It opposes the Neptune/Ceres conjunction in Pisces. This tells you there is a significant rise in food allergies right now and also food impurities. So please watch your diet and the foods you purchase. Otherwise the Full Moon in Virgo speaks of taking your worries and detailed thinking and balancing it with the more fantasy venue of Pisces. Full Moons are also about relationships and you can open your eyes to see what is out of balance in those interactions
Virgo Full Moon says that you are picking apart every last detail until no one wants you around. Analyzing tends to show up in a major way. You may find yourself managing whatever you do very well yet will tend to nitpick until there is nothing left. If you find yourself not understanding others at this time that is old Virgo moon. One good thing is that you will help and serve others who need you at this time. This is not the time to put anything off (ha…I was not in the mood for writing this post and I said do it and so here I am) since down the road on March 8 is the Solar Eclipse and that will truly create a crisis if you didn’t do your homework or anything else that may have to be done.
It is a time of releasing the old now. This energy has been building since September 2015 and you need to somehow get rid of the anxiety that many of you are experiencing. Dreaming is a good idea at times, but keep it in balance with the details that you need to complete for any project on the docket -whether personal or business related. It is time to pay attention to your health, your diet and exercise, and your wellness.
What crisis has erupted in your life regarding love or money in the last couple of weeks? Maybe you just need more money for some reason or something about your friendship or love relationship has come to a boiling point. This is all about balancing the dynamics of any type of relationship so that you can resolve the crisis if it shows up. Rapid change is going to occur since the Virgo Full Moon is at the midpoint between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. I have been talking about the square between Uranus and Pluto for a very long time and it is now critical and leads to an extreme shift in circumstances. Watch for inflexibility in your attitude and your actions since this will block changes that need to be made now. Be careful of disharmonious influences which may cause nervous tension to become unmanageable unless you release any anger that is hidden.
Be careful where you aim your arrows this time around and please do not use your loved ones as targets. If there is no peaceful solution that is within your realm then the suggestion is to stand in your power. Any of those who are abused will find the tools to stand in dignity and have their rights.
Old habits die hard and this Full Moon says to look at that part of your life so you can let go of that which is no longer useful to you. Forget the auto-pilot and go within before you go out there. It is mixing of the spiritual and the everyday practicality. But with Neptune involved, you may decide to float along and dream and do nothing else. That is why it is important to keep the balance. Neptune can also create fogginess in how you see things or even some illusions. Jupiter crosses the point where the September eclipse sits and also opposes Chiron in Pisces. This is calling for you to look at the wound that may have shown up and take time to heal.
Those of you who have any personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) near 3 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will feel this more intensely. And if you don’t know your chart then the birthdays that are affected are: May 19 – May 27; August 20-August 28; November 19-November 27; and February 18-25.
By the way, 222 in Angel talk means that you are close to manifesting your intention. Keep positive. Almost there!
Some tidbits for each Sun sign/Rising sign at the Full Moon in Virgo:
Aries-Can inspire visions to see what you need to do or create some fog or confusion in your health or work. Take small steps to reach your goal.
Taurus- Watch for being over-committed in a project. You may need to just pull back a bit. You tend to have some emotional urgency with child or lover. Pay attention to details in love.
Gemini-Don’t let your vision of how you would like things to go blind you to what is. Turn down the noise in your environment and from others so you can come to a decision.
Cancer-Chaos and confusion may replace efficient thinking. Let your feelings flow as you float in the clouds. Practical details are a necessary part of your life.
Leo- Make no economic decisions under this cloudy energy. The simple truth keeps slipping away the closer you get to finding it. Only time will bring you the answer.
Virgo-Is there a drama about your needs versus others brewing? Choose happiness over caution and you may actually like it. Moving out of the head may free you up.
Libra-It is time to get off the couch and eat nutritionally again. Will you be inspired or disillusioned? Focus on new goals and give it your all.
Scorpio- Infatuated in a dreamy way, are you? Differences between you social needs and your loved ones show up. If you have been sidetracked, you see a new way.
Sagittarius- You may wish to aim for the stars but keep those feet on the ground. Some confusion occurs in home/family. Make tiny adjustments without any major moves yet.
Capricorn-News or decision which requires immediate attention or it is misdirected. This is a time to get rid of those fears and reach for your dreams. Focus on the big picture.
Aquarius- Are there bills that need to be covered? Watch for any tricky situations regarding shared finances. Watch for blurred thoughts in the next days.
Pisces-Don’t let anyone take advantage of your kind nature. Your needs and nurturing are out of balance in partnership area. With others establish clear boundaries.
So, will you be steaming in a dream or screaming? Time will tell.
Thank you for reading and if you will, please share. Stay tuned for the shifting energy and keep your joy to the fore. Have a great Full Moon. Until again. Many blessings and love, Jan
Listen in to Going Beyond Astrology on Tuesdays at 9pm EST. February 22- http://mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air/events/soulmates-and-twin-flames-and-your-natal-chart
The Wolf Moon comes howling and you don’t need a seer, to see your move forward has to be without fear. Happy New Year to all of you wherever you happen to be.
The world has come to a major turning point. Some of you will hide; some of you will live in the past; some of you will envision the future; but how many will live in the now? That is the question for this time, this space. What I have seen lately is there are the police-haters, those who detest Russia and Putin, and those of you who complain about everything and keep supporting those in power who do nothing except create chaos. And sometimes chaos may be good but not at this time and place. Chaos may come on its own accord which is quite possible with FULL MOON. How about those of you who turn a blind eye to everything? Just an update – I did mention a few posts ago that I believed there was deception and lies regarding the missing student in Philly metro area. Well, they just found his body in the river near where he apparently was seen on videotape. Really? They found his keys recently and now they find his body. I am not buying it. Who did this to Shane? That’s my question. All of a sudden the body shows up in 4 feet of water. Oh, goodness me. How did they miss it? If it was in the river that long, it would have been taken to the ocean by now. Bunch of hooey. Just my observation. What do I know? And just one more thing…his phone was still attached to his belt. Now that is the best news. Wow! Do you really think that is possible? RIP Shane. Had to get that out of my system! One more thing, if you haven’t been paying attention to Wall Street doings I say now is the time to keep an eye on those pensions and retirement plans. You never know what certain individuals may be concocting.
Now onward to the Wolf Full Moon in Cancer arriving tonight, January 4, 2015 at 11:53pm EST, 8:53pm PST, and 4:53am GMT (January 5, 2015) in 14 degrees 31’. The Sun is in Capricorn opposing the Moon in Cancer. So what is this Full Moon going to do for you and me? Well, lots of emotions are coming up even some nostalgia. Any of you have sentimental feelings as the Full Moon in Cancer arrives? Guess what the Full Moon has company. They are pretty heavy visitors which will certainly impact all of us in some way. Those planets coming to the party again are Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries who are opposing and squaring the Full Moon. And it gets even better with it also aspecting the Moon’s Nodes. What a great party they will enjoy. Are you ready to activate all your possibilities? Some of you may be prodded or maybe have a visit from a spiritual 2×4 if you continue living in the past and hanging on for dear life. This is a turning point as I mentioned in the beginning of the post.
Choosing to release the past will truly allow you to move forward. Now, understand that I am speaking of those things and individuals in your life which no longer support your growth, your harmony, your peace and love. Stop turning a blind eye to how this affecting your forward motion. And I do know that Full Moon in Cancer is all about family and nurturing and that is good. BUT, dear Cancer Moon is being shoved around and it does not like this. Oh well. Stop resisting already. How many times have I mentioned this? I wonder why this keeps coming up for me to write to remind you. The past is like the shadow in your mind. Let it go already. Until you do, nothing happens anymore. Seriously! Test it and see. Oh yes, love does rule here yet it cannot be fully expressed if the shadow keeps you acting the same way you did way back when. And guess what, shadow keeps you separate from others and love goes by the wayside.
So many speak of the future and that is no different than being in the past. What happened to right now? You know if you let go, whatever you intended will show up. No fancy dances needed to bring it to you. Just be. Full Moons are about releasing. Once let go, and then guess what, here comes your prize. The prayer is answered, the intention is manifested. What is so difficult about that? Of course, there are minor items in your chart which may be saying…whoa! It has to wait. So what? Then you do something else and take advantage of other opportunities. Work on your own clearing and life changes swiftly for the better. If you let your ego mind show up and try to control your world, forget about it. This negates all your possibilities. You know that I am relentless in stating this. Everyone is being affected in some way. Wouldn’t it be terrific to walk on your true path and know that it will shift something for you as you allow the Divine within to help you create? Oh, one more thing, stop controlling your life and those in it.
Empowerment is here for the taking with this Full Moon in Cancer. Do you choose it? Shadow has to go now if you wish to experience that power that is waiting to show up. It won’t happen in the past or the future. It is about the now. Keep that in mind.
The nodes are involved in aspecting the Full Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Capricorn. This says that relationships are now being looked at so that peace and equality can be present. It also tells you that self-contentedness, self-absorption, impulsive and aggressive behavior is unfavorable. If any of the latter sounds like something familiar, please stop it now. Why? The going will get tough if you continue in this manner. The last square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will take place in March. Whatever was going on in your life in April 2014 may show now and then again around that last square and forward after the Solar Eclipse a few days after. Do pay attention. This Full Moon with the squares to nodes aspecting it says to you that compassion (Cancer), integrity (Capricorn), initiative (Aries) and diplomacy (Libra) are important. Wherever the nodes and the Full Moon are in your chart will tell you what areas are highlighted. Also, those signs just mentioned are more intensely affected especially if your birthday is between June 30-July 10, December 30-January 7, March 30-April 8 and October 2-10.
For Sun signs and rising signs: Aries-watch your emotions so they aren’t extreme; Taurus-some decisions may have to be made and put the to-do list aside, have some fun; Gemini-keep an eye on your economic territory and watch you don’t get played; Cancer-ask for love from others along with major changes on horizon; Leo-get to the bottom of any issues without being the victim; Virgo-keep your power and some ebb and flow with your friends; Libra-stand your ground and someone is there to rely on to help keep you balanced; Scorpio-your beliefs may be challenged and watch the arguments; Sagittarius-financial urgency and some innovative thinking; Capricorn- changes come and some are imposed/care for those you love; Aquarius-watch for explosiveness and pay attention to your health; Pisces-reach for sweet side in expression along with control your reactions if changes occur.
I picked an Animal Totem for the Full Moon time. It is a turtle. “Turtle, please come to me and help me slow down and enjoy where I am. Teach me to protect myself with shells and shelters so I can endure beings and forces I cannot control. You are at home on land or in the water. You hold up the whole Earth Island on your back. Your slow steadiness symbolizes all things that endure.”(Animal Powers)
Thank you for reading this post. Please share with others who may not know about it. The New Moon in Aquarius shows up on January 20, 2015. I wish you many blessings for a joyful New Year. Until again. Love, Jan
