NEW MOON Solar Eclipse in Taurus, April 29, 2014- Transforming words may open to pleasure

Where are you heading on your path? The Lunar Eclipse occurred 2 weeks ago and the Grand Cross became exact again on April 23, 2014. The planets and signs involved were Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Libra all at 13 degrees. That squaring of planets is helping to push you out of your rut and into motion again to let go of the past. Oh no, not that again. You say you like the past. It’s ok to ponder for the things you learned and maybe enjoyed. Why hold on? Let it go already. Eclipses are about releasing yet bring about new beginnings. Things present themselves differently. This upcoming New Moon Solar Eclipse is just one opportunity to help you release that which no longer is an important part of your life. Many things are changing and have moved out of the past even though you may fail to see this presently. There is still much darkness hovering around and the deceptive qualities of those who are walking in the darkness continue to seep through. And Sabian symbol says that it is a decorated Christmas tree. Speaks of keeping the Light shining no matter what negatives appear around you.

The NEW MOON Solar Eclipse in Taurus at 2:14am EDT on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 is at 8 degrees 52’. Those of you who have planets between 4 and 12 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be more intensely affected. What does this New Moon say to you? Taurus is all about values. Taurus likes walking in nature and is very patient. Taurus until pushed will be quite accepting of all but pushed one step too far and that angry bull shows up. It happens only in extreme circumstances. Whatever you enjoy and appreciate is about Taurus. It can be mental, spiritual, physical or emotional. Where do you cling to something? Taurus tends to do that if out of balance. In your chart you can tell where this may happen. Tagore said,” Why did the flower fade? I clutched it to my heart in excess of feeling and crushed it. Why did the lamp go out? I shielded it with my cloak and it got no air.”

That is what this NEW MOON Solar Eclipse is about. Letting people and things go that no longer are a part of your life. The purpose has been served. Where it falls in your chart also indicates a place where you can be more productive beyond the material world. Are you fearful of losing loved ones or possessions? This New Moon leads you to be more established and secure on all planes of existence. A Taurus is very sensual in aspects of life. It likes the sensory world- to touch, to feel, to experience fully all that surrounds them. I think that is where the hugging the tree comes from. . How have you been holding up your ego? This is also a time of sacrificing your ego for something else. Openings come if you do this.

Mercury is conjunct the New Moon in Taurus and trines Pluto in Capricorn. This truly is about using words to heal. Yet many of you will be pulled into the mainstream news which is a form of conditioning and does work in a negative way. So words can be used many ways. Just watch for the brainwashing that comes out of the media which can flow so smoothly and affect you without you being aware. Put your good intentions out there now after the eclipse takes place. Mercury is helping you stay focused and without being overwhelmed. You may have brought back your power at the Grand Cross and also done some intention writing. This is the time to check on those intentions and use your imagination to bring them to you. With Neptune sextile (good) the New Moon there is a fantasy influence to this energy. Focus on being creative also since you may come up with a winner. Since Pluto is trine the New Moon Solar Eclipse it may also help you to transform your life through your values where it is in your chart without too much effort. If you are looking to improve your self-worth and need to release the negative, go for it now. It can be magical. Trust your gut feelings and watch who you choose as your guru these days.

In my own chart the New Moon is quincunx (inconjunct) to Neptune. I may find the opportunity to refine my higher vision and bring that truth to the world. Tells me to stop taking on too many things (Sun inconjunct Neptune). I cannot do everything for everyone. And It is worth waiting for if it is in line with my vision. Sun/Moon square Pluto is a time to purge old emotions and use it to create something which is powerful. Unusual concepts may arise and come to fruition. YAY!
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is connected to the Saros Cycle eclipses of 1995. What were you doing back then 19 years ago and where were you on your path? Are there any similar occurrences going on in your life? The energy of the Solar Eclipse will travel through much of the summer. A door may open in that timeframe and you may recognize it only if you pay attention. This can be a big kickstart for a new direction. Some relationships may have closed a chapter yet now are opening to deeper intimacy and true connection with material support. Integrity is very important here too! It is time to go beyond the before and be in the now. The old you has gone and whatever pain is still lingering and old wounds kept you stymied it is now time to let go and release them totally. Your power is waiting for you within. Detach and let go completely.

This is a Solar Eclipse New Moon about our stuff. What you own, desire, pine over and how it makes you feel. Whether it is a piece of art or an old porch; whether it is a stack of CDs that overtake your den or a comfy couch that everyone chooses to recline; that is your stuff. And what is it that makes you feel pleasure? That also is included in the mix. Jump into the senses because along with all the craziness of the other energies, this is who Taurus is. Endurance is the word and if you get bored with being in the moment, try it anyway. It may change your life.

Happy good luck to you on the path enjoying the moment. Many blessings and a big thank you to all who read this. Until again. Love, Jan

FULL MOON in TAURUS, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 – Forging Ahead in Balance and Integrity

Are you ready for some wining and dining, playing? Have you had enough of the constant negativity that continues to weave its way through your life causing you to doubt and fear; maybe you even want to hide away? Sounds like one of those commercials that I turn off. Just trying to get your attention because life at this time is not what it seems. Energy is on the upsurge and you can access your own depth of consciousness. Why do you choose to run scared? On my radio show last Friday night I spoke about the Pluto/Uranus square and its connection to the Solar Eclipse on the 3rd of November and how it is bringing about power struggles on all levels of relating. Do you really choose to go in that darkness? The continuous blasting of control and power among the elite is beginning to be a thorn in your side. Or do you like being told that you have to do everything that someone else dictates? Think about it. I am sure someone out there is reading my blog who is monitoring my words. You know I will say nothing because most of the truth is out there already. It is a matter of YOU discerning it and walking your own truth. The FULL MOON in TAURUS is upon us and it can be a truly pleasurable time if you choose or not.

The FULL MOON in TAURUS takes place on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at 10:15am EST, California 7:15 am PST, Hawaii 5:15am and London 3:15pm. It occurs at 25 degrees 26’. Is it time now that you take the energy and transform your life direction/purpose? There is always a balance indicated when the Full Moon occurs. With the Sun being in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus you will find that you are trying to balance your personal values/transformation (Scorpio) with your security (Taurus). Through the past posts I have said much about facing your fears so that you can become your true self. Until you do that, you wander through the shadows of past doings, patterns and anything else that keeps you from flowing on top of the earth. Now with this Full Moon in Taurus you may choose to dig a bit deeper and with the Sun in Scorpio influence, you may actually find the clues as to how to release the trauma, the guilt, the hidden negative cellular memories which come up in your daily life that keep you in the shadows You are now given an opportunity to get on track with aligning your goals with your truth within.

Full Moon in Taurus would like you to take a look at what really makes you joyful. Since Taurus is ruled by Venus there can also be lots of good food and company. Taurus is definitely about the senses and most Taureans love to take part in pleasurable activities. Do you know a Taurean who doesn’t like to be surrounded by good art, enjoy a night out with that special someone or even have some really close friends to entertain? And don’t forget the music. My goodness, this is the icing on the cake for Taureans. It is time to enhance your talents and stop sabotaging yourself. How many of you continue the game of self-sabotage? Does it help? Full Moon in Taurus loves to create. You are fighting against your inherent gifts because it takes time away from any game that you play. Or could it be you just have little self-esteem? Those who have planets within the realm of 19 – 30 degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be affected most intensely. Other signs will be influenced depending on the planets involved.

Since the FULL MOON is about balance and healing energies, what are your intentions to clearing and releasing that which no longer serves your truth? Have you thought about this at all? Some of you will be reaching a pinnacle of success since you have already come into alignment. But those of you who are still walking in the power game will find yourselves stuck in the dark. As I said Venus rules Taurus and even though that is the case, it still is out of the main arena when it comes to this Full Moon. Yet, Venus is being assaulted by Pluto and Uranus. It makes a big square (conflict) to Uranus in Aries and conjunct (right on) Pluto in Capricorn. Help!! This is prodding (you don’t prod Taurus individuals) Venus to refine any relationships so the power struggle is minimized. It also says that integrity and cooperation are a big part of this entire scenario. So there it is again that Pluto/Uranus square yanking poor Venus around. Venus wants to dance and she has no opening unless there is some support from the relationship. Open to clearing out the junk from any relationship with which you continue to have the power struggle. Give it up. Are you always right? And who of you is pushing the envelope in your relationship? What purpose does it serve? Stop tolerating unmet desires and true needs. I truly mean it. Tolerance is fine to a point but it will bring you to a screaming state soon if something doesn’t change. And those of you who continue the control antics, there are more important things in life and the relationship needs to have balance. One-sidedness has no value. And the FULL MOON in TAURUS is about values. What do you value in your relationship? What about your core values? You need to figure this out NOW. Then balance is achieved and openings can occur. Do you get it?

Venus stays in Capricorn until March 5, 2014 due to the retrograde (backward motion) she takes on December 21. That is a long time for Venus in one sign. Compassion and empathy are needed as Venus goes through this long trek. Intensity creeps in with Venus on Pluto. Obsession anyone? Passionate involvements? This too is part of the Full Moon- the passion that is.

The Full Moon itself is very calm and slightly laid back. It is the other planets that are making noise in the background. As you notice life is really coming apart in various places and especially in the US of A. You will see many changes in the next months which will topple many structures that have been in force for a very long time. It isn’t happening immediately but it is a foreshadowing of what is to come.

On the 21st of November Mercury meets the Eclipse point of November 3, 2013. Watch what you say because words are the key to your breaking through to manifest those things that matter to you. If you stay in the negative you will get the negative. Your thoughts matter too. If you continue to say one thing and do something else, do you really think it will bring you what you desire. Please!

My next radio show will be on BlogTalkradio/ on November 22, 2013 at 11pm EST. Many thanks to all of you who support this blog. Blessings and joy to all. May you find balance and joy in your relationships. Until again. Love, Jan

FULL MOON in LIBRA, March 27, 2013- Seeking balance, finding chaos-Now what?

Have you gotten enveloped in the madness? For many in this month of March there is a coming together of many who cheer on their teams to victorious moments and anguish over their losses. There is a Cinderella story going on in the NCAA basketball world. In fact there may be 2 stories of Cinderella. By the end of the weekend it will be known who amongst those Cinderella teams advance. I usually do not bring up mainstream TV but this is a must for anyone to watch and be inspired fully, totally and completely. If you get an opportunity and you can find it in your listings, please watch 30/30- Survive and Advance, a film by ESPN regarding the 1983 NCAA National Championship game with the North Carolina State team winning it all and their coach Jim Valvano inspiring them beyond the beyond. The joy was incredible. If all of you could be so in the moment and intending your dreams…you can achieve anything if you truly believe it. Now here comes the Full Moon in Libra. You can be inspired, but you probably will find a reason not to be unless you take a leap of faith.

The Spring Equinox took place on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. What primaveral longings did you have? It is a time to set your yearly intentions. It is still time enough to do it. What do you choose to create and have it happen next year at this time? Think about it and send it out there into the higher realms and do act upon your intention so that it may manifest a year from now. Look for signs in your life that will help you make that leap to a new start. Life is about action which has nothing and now is the time to begin the action. Let go of the passivity unless you find yourself in a rejuvenation stage. As you regroup, for those who are, please know the intention can still be put out there.

This Full Moon in Libra is on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 6 deg 52’ Libra at 5:28 EDT. This is in alignment with the T-square of Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries which is conjunct the Sun. Libra is a sign of cooperation on harmony and balance. Aries likes the freedom and independence mode along with being self-assertive. It is time for higher awareness. But you must allow it. To backtrack a moment – Were your dreams flowing through brightly since the New Moon? Have your illusions begun to disappear? I bet many of you have been lazing along, haven’t you? If you took it a step up then you may have experienced a higher kind of love and togetherness. Anyone out there do that? How many of you are still creating separation? Did you allow the boundaries to expand instead of closing the door on something real? These are things to think about before this Full Moon comes blasting through your door. And believe me for some of you it will create a storm with lightning bolts.

Changes are evident with this Full Moon in Libra. This is an atypical Libra Moon because there are so many planets in Aries which are far from harmonious at times and like to stir things to action. What is going to blow up in your life to make you pay attention to the reality around you? This will come from the T-square mentioned above. Cancer individuals with planets in 2 degrees-10 degrees will be affected most intensely. This comes right at you since any Cancer planets are opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus and the Moon. Other signs most affected are Capricorn, Aries and Libra. This Full Moon is about taking a stand without picking a fight. Who among you can do this? Are you ready to free yourself from the imbalances and limitations? It is now time to take that big leap for some of you. Others may make plans and watch for the newly created signs which will help them move forward. Most of all, you need to pay attention. I know I say this frequently but it is so important. There may be some vivid dreams around this time. What are they telling you?

The Aries Sun which is opposite the Libra Moon starts the blaze which came from the lightning bolt. Balance is so important as this whole scenario opens up. If the risk is needed, take it. And for those who are feeling alone, others are on the path too! Look around and you will see them. There is a cooperative influence although it may feel otherwise. The Yod that still hangs around, seemingly for months, makes everything a bit more complex than you normally like yet the road is open if you choose to see this. Make your way through the maze of images that may perplex your thinking.
There is nurturing to be had but you have to give as well as receive. Sometimes it returns to you in ways that are less obvious. Push no one at this time. Many say this Full Moon in Libra is lovely and sweet and flowing. It may flow right into a fiery whirlwind. This is a very volatile time and the ducks are being blasted off the pond. There is no gentleness with this Full Moon even though Libra would like that.

These next couple of weeks will be far from mundane and boring. Hold onto your hats because whatever comes to you may knock that hat right off your head. It may be really chaotic. Craziness reigns because so many things are happening. Stay in the moment. Take a look at your life and get rid of things that no longer matter or at least are no longer working. This may help balance it all out. And who of you needs to take legal action? It may be worth it in the long run. After the next 2 weeks things should settle down again.

For those who celebrate Easter and Passover may you find peace and joy within your hearts. To everyone have a blessed new beginning as the Light shines brightly upon you. Even though there is madness and chaos in the air remember what Rob Brezsny said in a Pronoia post—“Pressure makes you fresher”. Be still. Until again. Love, Jan


Before taking a look at the Full Moon this month of July 2011 let’s see what else is happening in your world. Are you still standing from all those eclipses in June/July? Those around me seem to have not noticed the effects yet. Are you feeling anything different? In the past week Uranus turned retrograde in Aries which means that you are going to take a look at yourself in a big way and by the end of this year, dear ones, your whole perspective on your life will be changed. What a wonderful thought! It is time to go within and let that inner child be free. You have been getting ideas and thoughts which will help you push your dream into reality and help you take that cosmic leap that is so rightfully yours. The good points are that you are thinking along entrepreneurial ways, impassioned and independent. Or you just might be the other side of the coin and be selfish, non-committal and impatient. It also brings us back to reliving the past again one more time with the illusions and delusions that may still enmesh you. Secrets finally are revealed and that brings a sense of relief to some of you. Once December rolls around that idea you once thought impossible or just a play in your mind, may just take you to the next level and wake you up to what your true direction is. The shift from Pisces into Aries last year brought you sudden changes but also rebirth. How did you handle the changes that unexpectedly entered your life? (It took me awhile to face them and adjust.) And now this timeframe will help you relook at everything and see who you really are and how you will reach out to help in a worldly fashion. The shake-up has come and gone, not saying there isn’t something else down the road, but you can now handle it if you go within and truly look at you and what will set you free. From Daykeeper Journal, “Uranus in Aries will confront us with our willingness to grow, sometimes against our own grain. We can expect a lot of grandstanding and that many people will say they know the truth—whether they know anything or not! We will hear from thinkers as well as people who can’t be bothered to think anything through.”

On with the show and the FULL MOON is at 22 degrees Capricorn, July 15, 2011 at 2:40am EDT, 11:40PDT.  My moon is Capricorn which is a tough act to live with. At one time I had no idea what it was trying to show me. Moon in Capricorn loves boundaries and being out in society relating and focusing on outcomes. (How ironic I have Uranus on my rising sign which very much is filled with surprises and loves freedom to have to deal with this moon in Capricorn. Explains why I keep my humor going). Moon in Capricorn dislikes abandonment, being unloved, disrespected and humiliation. Anyone having this moon in Capricorn knows what I am talking about. This FULL MOON is the Sun in Cancer (all cuddly, family-oriented and tenacious) and Moon in Capricorn (boundaries, practical, vulnerable). In the opposition the Sun Cancer/Moon Capricorn has a tug of war in some sense between work and family matters. That is generally speaking. It is a time to choose a balance between the two. What is best for all concerned? You can make this work if you truly look at it. Is work your only focus these days? Did you forget about that all those others who are meaningful in your life? Have you been showing consideration to all people in your life because if not, this will bring the ducks off the pond. When there is imbalance and especially with work and relationships/ family matters, the feathers may fly until you come back into balance. If there are any past issues that have not been addressed they will rear their ugly heads in your life until resolution is reached. This time it can be.  You heard me correctly…this time there can be resolution. Hurrah! This is a time of precise decisions and you have to take responsibility without trying to shirk it because your hidden patterns are going to arise to stare you in the face. No hiding anymore is the key. Look to your roots for answers. Look at your foundational core of family traditions and ancestral yearnings and ask yourself what do you have within to enhance your gifts and talents that will bring that one idea to fruition. That’s the idea that you are looking for to bring you the recognition that you deserve and desire. That idea may have already been recognized and now you have to dig a bit deeper so that you can get ready to leap with it. This FULL MOON in Capricorn allows you to let go of anything that no longer works in your life. Reflect upon what it is you wish to create and dig deeper than you have been to find that Divine inspiration. It will appear if you intend it. Even goats can leap.

Keep your focus and bring back that balance to your life. And remember you are connected to all around you. Honor those that walk the path with you and those who are just in your life for an instant. Blessings from the deep and joy to you all. Until again, Love, Jan
