Happy Astrological New Year!

Hello to spring and the arrival of the astrological new year!  This is just a short post to let those of you who did the 12 Days of Christmas journaling know that this is the time that relates to the events you would have journaled for the 1st Day of Christmas!  Take a look back at what you wrote then to see what kinds of personal experiences you may have or that you may see in the world during the time that the Sun is in Aries.

Here are some things that I noted from my own journal writing of that day (Dec. 26, 2011):


Woke up this morning dreaming of the word “inferences” – I kept repeating that word in my dream so that I would remember it on waking.

Also dreamed that my insurance company called and dropped my insurance rates because we were such good drivers.

Waking Day:

Our house seems to have a spirit or ghost – lights keep coming on and going off without anyone or anything visibly moving around.  Weird!!

Then both mine and Terry’s computers fritzed out and went to the “blue screen” – restarted the computers and all was well.

Came home from the store to find one of our sons and his friend playing Battlefield 3.  The whole house was filled with the sounds of battle – it was too much for me – Had to escape into my room to get away from the sound.  I ended up watching two shows on TV – one was “The Haunting” and the other was “2011 The Year the Earth Went Wild”.

Went to bed with a scratchy throat, like I’m coming down with a cold – woke up 5 times in the night, just couldn’t sleep.”

So, what might these events that I noted mean for me or for the world during this Aries time of year?  Interestingly, unknown to my conscious mind at the time, my insurance is up for renewal this month!  Wouldn’t it be interesting if my rates were dropped?  I think so!!  I looked up the word “inferences” in the dictionary and found this:  “The deriving of one idea from another.”  I’m not sure what that means yet, but I bet it will show up in some way in the next few weeks.

There seemed to be an emphasis on “battle” during that day.  It was almost intolerable to me, which made it even more important that I remember it.  Are we headed into some kind of violent action in the world yet again?  Or, is there some other kind of disturbance that I may face in my own personal life?  Hard to say at this point, we are so early into the time frame indicated by that day.

The fact that our computers “fritzed” out that day is hysterical, because here we are right now in the midst of a Mercury retrograde – a time period well known for communication “fritzes” of all kinds.  So far, so good – I haven’t experienced anything unusual, but that doesn’t mean that other kinds of miscommunications, computer confusions, or other weirdness won’t happen during this time.

I’m especially interested in the fact that I watched “2011 The Year the Earth Went Wild” and here we are in the midst of a wild couple of weather days here in Washington.  Snow, wind, rain, hail, thunder…not our usual spring!  But interesting in light of what I wrote from back in December.

So you can see that there are clues to be found in whatever was “up” for you on that day.  I would love to hear from some of you on what you discovered during your journaling of the 1st Day of Christmas – it would be especially interesting if there were parallels between what we all experienced.

Happy Spring!

The North Node – Part I of Your Destiny Profile

There are three main parts in determining your specific destiny profile.  The first one that I look at is the North Node.  If you have had a reading with me, you may have heard me refer to it as your destiny.  The North Node is your chart shows me the direction that you are to move in this lifetime.  It is by no means the area that you will find easiest, in fact, it is the area of your life that you must work towards.

In today’s post, I have listed a description for each signs destiny,  and below that there is a chart so you can find where the North Node was when you were born.  Of course, these are only limited descriptions, but they will give you an idea of what you came here to accomplish.

If your North Node (Destiny) is in:

Aries – You are here to be a leader in your chosen field of endeavor – this will be shown more clearly in your chart based on the house (the area of your life) that the Aries North Node is in.  Your destiny in Aries pushes you to become independent, assertive and action-oriented, and a pioneer.  You will work best when you are being bold, creative and trusting your own impulses.  In this lifetime you must learn to stand on your own two feet and walk your talk without becoming unbalanced by the needs and issues of partners, friends and family.

Taurus – You are here to build a solid sense of self-worth and value in yourself without being dependent on others to validate your position or path.  Taurus North Node is learning to build a solid and stable financial life which includes developing a healthy sense of gratitude.  You are also learning how to enjoy the journey to building anything in your life using persistence and a step by step process instead of jumping to the end first.  Because Taurus North Node can so easily see the end result of whatever it is they desire, I often refer to them as the “Master Manifestors” of the zodiac.

Gemini  – You are here to become an honest communicator without becoming self-righteous.  Sharing knowledge and information is your specialty and your natural curiosity will see you becoming interested in a vast number of topics.  Gemini North Nodes are here to be the social butterflies and become involved with people from all walks of life.  You are also here to learn the concept of duality, recognizing that on Earth the principles of yin/yang are the rule rather than the exception.  Accepting the contradictory parts of your own nature and the world we live in can bring you peace of mind.

Cancer –  Your destiny is to recognize, validate and notice feelings and emotions, and then learn to express how you are feeling.  Cancer North Node is a nurturing sign and you are here to support others and to have empathy.  You are also learning to establish your own foundation and sense of security.  Cancer, as a water sign, is learning to listen to and be guided by their intuition and gut instincts.

Leo – Your destiny involves strengthening your willpower, following your unique heart’s desire, and finding the self-confidence to be center stage in whatever arena or area of life you choose.  Leo North Node is meant to have fun with this life, create joy, relate to the world with child-like enthusiasm and be the creative genius in your chosen field.  Leo is learning about love and learning to be loved.

Virgo – Your destiny is to focus on the here and now by participating fully in whatever action you are undertaking.  This is a lifetime of service to others and by serving you achieve a greater feeling of connectedness enabling you to work with your vast reservoir of compassion for your fellow Earth dwellers.  Virgo North Node is learning to take action, be consistent and avoid giving up on themselves and their dreams.

Libra – Libra’s destiny is to become increasingly aware of others’ needs and to build relationships.  You will need to develop skills like cooperation, tact and diplomacy and be willing to share of yourself, your time and your talents.  A very big part of your destiny is to learn to create win-win situations and to discover the strength in teamwork.

Scorpio –  Your destiny is to learn to release and let go of anything that oppresses you, and letting go of characteristics like stubbornness that do not serve you in this lifetime.  Scorpio’s North Nodes are learning to choose vitality, empowerment and personal transformation.  Partnering and creating mutually beneficial shows you the way to successful merging of energies and the emotional benefits therein.  You are also learning to accept help from others and to value others.

Sagittarius –  You are here to learn to have a spirit of adventure, be spontaneous and develop a sense of freedom.  Sagittarius North Node’s are expanding beyond their own culture and ideas and embracing oneness and worldliness.  Your destiny is to be intuitive and to learn to rely on invisible guidance as well as to speak from your higher consciousness.  You are learning the concepts of Truth & Freedom in terms of expressing yourself and allowing others to express themselves.

Capricorn – Your destiny is to learn discipline, self-control and keeping of commitments and promises.  Capricorn North Node’s must learn to take responsibility for their own success which include things like being goal-oriented and problem solving.  There is a great need with this destiny to let go of the past and to become emotionally responsible by not overreacting to emotional situations.

Aquarius –  You are the humanitarians of the world.  By becoming more aware of the wants and needs of others you find yourself surrounded by good friends.  Aquarius North Nodes are learning to receive love and to allow others to give to them.  You must learn to see the “big picture” then your natural genius and ingenuity shines through.  This is a lifetime of group mind so you are learning the value of letting go of your ego and going with the flow.

Pisces – You are the compassionate, creative, idealists.  Pisces North Nodes must learn to surrender their anxieties and fears and learn to trust in a higher power.  Your destiny pulls you toward a spiritual path where you can acknowledge oneness with the universe.  Meditation, yoga and self-reflective exercises benefit you in this lifetime.  Relaxing your ideals of “perfection” ease your pathway and help you to maintain an emotional balance without the need for escapist practices (like drugs, sex, drinking, gambling, daydreaming, etc.).

Dear Friends,

Do you know of anyone who is struggling to reach their life purpose or who is unsure of what their purpose or destiny is? Maybe they’ve recently lost their job and don’t know what direction to turn, or maybe they’re young and just have no clue what to do or what they want…Or, maybe they’ve reached that mid-life time when they’re really looking for something more to do with their life?


I need 3 people with just these kinds of problems to work with me for the next three months. If you think you know of someone please give them my email address – janethickox@hotmail.com or my telephone number (360)399-1122 for an interview. My services for this project are no charge.


The ideal candidate is:


1. At least 18 years old

2. Open to astrology, numerology and other similar tools

3. Coachable – meaning they are ready & willing for change to happen in their lives.
