What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

Welcome to the Month of April 

Astrology Information to Get You Through the Week – April 1-7

Here we are in the first week of April – Already!!  Wow- where does the time go? We begin the week with April Fool’s Day.  What tricks or pranks will you fall for this week – all in the name of fun 🙂

The energy of the week features Mercury conjunct Neptune again (remember last week they were also conjunct when Mercury was retrograde), and the New Moon, and that’s pretty much the story for the entire week.  There isn’t the extremes of last week’s change energy, so all in all this is a week to go with the flow.

Let’s break it down by the days:

April Fool's Day Monday, April 1, 2019

Happy April Fool’s Day.  Do you know the origins of this day?  April Fool’s is linked to the time when the Julian calendar gave way to the Gregorian calendar.  People who forgot the change and celebrated New Year’s on April 1 (where it used to be celebrated in the Julian Calendar) were made fun of.  This is only one story of the origins of the day.  You can find out more information in this article – HERE

Today’s astrology is very mild.  The Moon is in Aquarius early in the day and shifts this morning into Pisces.  The next few days are filled with the shifting sands of emotions and the high side for us is that we are more compassionate, intuitive and forgiving.  This doesn’t make for substantial decision-making prowess however, so be gentle when it comes to trying to make big decisions.  You will need more time for clarity before you really know what to choose.

Human Design Notes for the day:

Venus, in Human Design Astrology, represents our relationships, and she moves into the Gate 37-Harmony today.  Gate 37 is on the Emotional Solar Plexus center and for the next few days we are more inclined to equality, tenderness and creating harmony with one another.  In the lower frequency of the the Gate 37, we find cruelty and using power against one another.  Be kind, be generous, be compassionate, be loving.

Tuesday, April 2, 2019 Tuesday

Today the planet Mercury moves to conjunct Neptune in Pisces.  Last week week we had the same transit when Mercury in retrograde was conjunct Neptune.  Now Mercury is moving forward and has met up again with the planet of Spirituality, Mysticism and Intuition to deliver yet more messages from our higher selves.  This is a great day for meditation, contemplation or engaging in your Spiritual practice.  Choose to tap into the etheric realm for guidance and direction.

Human Design Notes for Today: 

Mercury now moves into the Gate 22 – Grace today and sits with Neptune.  Venus just recently left this gate so we are seeing quite a bit of focus on the information held in this gate.  Last Friday in the MetaCafe, I spent a bit of time talking about the energy at this gate and what it is leading us to.  Here’s a link to the video for that show:

Friday MetaCafe on Neptune at Gate 22

The Gate 22 is important because it is holding the key to our involution.  Think of involution as the inner changes we are making as we evolve as human beings.  Involution is the process of our embodying more and more of our Divinity.  It is ongoing, and as planets like Mercury (communication) and Neptune (Spiritual Nature) transit here, we are indeed changing from the inside out.

The Moon is in Pisces for most of the day today.  Before it transitions into Aries later this evening, we experience positive energy with Pluto and Jupiter.  For the most part the day is smooth.

Moon sextile Pluto – This transit arouses deep feelings and emotions within us.  We are more interested in the depth of things rather than just the superficial.  We are also more interested in the mysterious and mystical today.  We may have waken from dreams in the night that have a profound effect on us, as if the subconscious was speaking to us directly.

Moon square Jupiter – We feel generous, benevolent and spiritually oriented when the Moon squares Jupiter.  While you may feel very sure of your own beliefs, watch out for self-righteousness or smug arrogance in the face of other people’s beliefs.  There is enough room in this world for a diversity!

Thankful ThursdayLast evening the Moon shifted from Pisces into Aries.  Events pick up pace for the next couple of days.  The challenge is to be quick, yet avoid being premature so you don’t have to do it all over again down the line.  Nevertheless, it can be a fresh breeze all around, awake with energy.

Adding to that, the only aspect for the day is the Moon sextile Mars, and overall, this adds to the energy potential of the day.  Today we have the capacity to work well with others or by ourselves.  We may feel like taking the initiative and be more self-reliant.  In communicating with other today, steer clear of attacking with your words, or stirring the pot unnecessarily.  If you have something to say, say it responsibly and that means without blaming others or shaming anyone.

Friday, April 5, 2019 Friday

New Moon in Aries – While you slept the New Moon occurred at 15 Aries.  The New Moon always offers up the new, whether it is a new journey, a new belief, a new pathway forward, or even a new relationship (and that can be with a person, a group, money, etc.)  This New Moon opens up a portal to success, but it is not assured as much as it is worked for.  Aries new moons open up all kinds of possibilities to be bold, courageous and take action where it was once stalled.

About the only downer to this New Moon is it is square to Saturn in Capricorn, which can make us feel a bit overwhelmed by the work ahead to get where we want to go.  The best bet here is to make a plan and break up it up into bite-sized pieces.  That way you feel encouraged each time you take a step.  Saturn rewards those that are willing to do the work!

Human Design Notes for the New Moon

The Sun, Moon combination (ie the New Moon) are at the Gate 51-Initiation in your Human Design chart.  The energy at this gate is one of awakening and/or agitating, depending upon how you personally view what is going on.  The high frequency of this Gate shocks us, initiates us into higher knowledge/higher self and sets us up on a pathway to becoming more than we ever thought possible.

The lower frequency in the Gate 51 can cause us to feel defeated and fearful by the chaos or turmoil going on around us.  Or we may become agitated and upset, leading us to feel victimized.  It boils down to choice – how do you choose to see the challenges and opportunities around you?

The Weekend

The Moon is in Taurus for the entire weekend.  The next couple of days can be solid launching ground for anything you choose to embark upon, especially if it’s down to earth to begin with. The atmosphere favors practical beauty and the grace of being in touch with nature itself.  Enjoy the simple and the elegant, leaving behind complexity and complications.

However it isn’t all peaches and cream this weekend.  There are a couple of things to watch out for.

Saturday, April 6, 2019 – Moon conjunct Uranus

Be careful of acting rashly or impulsively today.  You may be feeling a bit moody, and there are repercussions if you act first, think later.  You certainly do not want to get stuck with the results of reacting versus taking action.  Instead, use the energy of the day to do something different – go someplace you’ve never been, visit with someone you haven’t seen in awhile or enjoy movie, museum or activity that you wouldn’t normally think you would like.  You might be surprised today in good ways, when you step out of a rut.

Sunday, April 7, 2019 – Mercury sextile Saturn

Today you can work diligently and carefully on any number of projects.  You have the mental acuity, focus and concentration to get things done.  Don’t try to focus on the big picture today as much as on the details of something.  This transit favors the minutia.  Don’t get carried away today with being too serious either – get out and have some fun!

So, all in all, not too bad of a week.  I’ll be leaving on Friday for a cruise in the Caribbean with psychic medium, John Holland and oracle card reader and designer, Colette Baron-Reid.  I’m really excited.  I’ll most likely be out of touch until April 14th when I get home.

Until then – have a Stellar week!

Blessings – Janet Hickox

 

Chi Energy vs. Kundalini

 

MetaCafe LogoThis morning during the MetaCafe, we talked to Amy Pattee Colvin about different ways to move energy through the body.  She moved us through some simple, yet effective, ways to move our energy through breath, Qigong, mudras (hand movements) and meditation.  One astute listener this morning asked the question about the difference between Chi or Qi energy and Kundalini energy.

The link below takes you to a nice article about the differences, and below that you can see the video interview this morning.

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy

Astrology for the Week of March 24-31, 2019

I hope everyone had a spectacular Spring or Fall Equinox and enjoyed the shifting energies of last week.  If you tuned into the spirit and quality of the time we just passed through, what you might find is that the world is awash in new potential, and we humans are not immune to the rush of newness.  After all, the 0 Aries point (known as Spring or Fall) marks the beginning of the astrological new year – all is indeed, new!

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy.  And, perhaps best of all, Mercury turns from retrograde into Direct motion.  I would say that the character of the week or the buzz word of this week is CHANGE.

Let’s dig in and get the details:

SundaySunday, March 24, 2019 –  While I normally include Sunday in the previous week, I didn’t write a complete post for last week, so I want to make sure we start there.  The Moon is in Scorpio for the day and things are not light, airy and breezy, but more intense, passionate with hidden currents moving through the collective.  That doesn’t mean it’s a bad day, but rather it makes it a good day to do some personal processing work, or try to get to the bottom of something.

Mercury Rx conjunct Neptune – There are two distinct potentials to how this transit can play out today.  The positive expression is that it enables you to think and express yourself with subtlety, expressing ideas and feelings that you don’t always have access to.  Artistic and creative expression is heightened, but as you are easily accessing the subconscious realms, not everyone may understand what you are trying to convey.  During this time our imaginative and mysterious inclinations are favored.

The more negative expression of this transit occurs when our imagination pushes us into illusion or unreality.  We may feel like we can enact our fantasies, and then when this transit is over the reality of our folly reveals our confused and unclear thinking.  This is not likely going to be a day of making big, life-changing decisions.

Another difficulty with this transit is the possibility of communication missteps.  We aren’t thinking clearly and our words, though they sound good to us, are not being heard by other people in their best light.  What you say may be easily misunderstood, so take care to be clear when communicating anything of importance.

Hello MondayMonday, March 25, 2019 – While you slept, the Moon moved in Sagittarius.  I just love starting a work week with the Moon in go-ahead mood and in the sign of Sagittarius.  We are moved to see the humor in things today, and we greet the day with a sense of adventure and optimism.  About the only thing to watch out for is an over-optimistic view that focuses on big ideas, but has few details.  Remember that if you are embarking on something new now, it takes both the big picture and the details to make it complete.

Moon trine Sun – Today’s accomplishments feel good and provide the basis for what will come later.  Meeting new people today may have an impact on you that lasts.  If something feels right, then it probably is right.  Your job is to put your best foot forward and follow through!

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 – Venus ingress Pisces  Venus in Pisces

Today Venus leaves Transpersonal Aquarius for Transcendent Pisces. Themes and values like Love, Universal Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Abundance & Flow emerge into our awareness.

Now Venus puts on her ethereal garb. In Pisces, Venus is exalted – meaning she is very comfortable in the sign.  She can get caught up in the magic of romance as love and attraction get idealized. The lines get blurred for us between what is real and what is imagined. On the other hand, we are more compassionate and sensitive to one another’s pain which moves us to altruism and acts of kindness and generosity. Venus is in Pisces until April 20.

Wed imageWednesday, March 27, 2019 – The Moon is Void-of-course until 7:08 am PT/10:08 am ET this morning before it moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.  Everybody is into getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done. It’s all about the proper attitude and appropriate emotional expression.  Get your work done, then let your hair down.  The Moon favors innovation and creative thinking today as it has a good relationship with Venus and with Uranus.

The Moon also squares the Sun today and that means that we have reached the “Crisis of Consciousness” part of the lunar cycle. We are faced with the inner shifts that need to take place in order for us to complete our New Moon intentions.  Let go of fear, resistance to change and limiting thinking and you can soar!

Venus sextile Uranus – This combination might make it difficult for you to stay focused on work today as required by the Moon in Capricorn.  In that case, you might feel yourself counting down the moments until you can get out of the office and into party mode.  That would be the best way to utilize this energy.  Work where appropriate and play where/when appropriate!  Or mix the two if that seems like a viable option.

You might also attract new friends under this influence, and they may be people who have a revolutionary effect upon you – changing your outlook, attitude or life in some interesting way.  Everyone seems interesting and interested.

Thursday, March 28, 2019 –  Mercury Direct Today

Early this morning Mercury, planet of Communication, the Mind and Transportation, Thankful Thursdayleaves retrograde for direct motion. We can all breathe a sigh of relief – except we still have the “retroshade” to deal with for a few more weeks.  The messenger planet has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5 reminding us of our Spiritual, Intuitive and Esoteric connections.  Now with Mercury moving forward we can take the lessons and revelations that we discovered about ourselves out into the world.  It’s now the time to demonstrate your as the embodiment of Spirit.  When your mind forgets it’s connection, try asking the question, “What if ___________?”  For instance, What if I am the creator of my reality and can change my life positively? or What if we can live in a world of peace and harmony?  This evokes “allowing” energy and turns the mind toward more positive territory.  Perfect for taking Mercury’s retrograde lessons out to the world you live in!

The Moon is in Capricorn all day, and she is making good connections to Mercury & Neptune.  You might remember that on Monday these two (Mercury & Neptune) were in a conjunction and our imagination and creativity were stimulated.  Now is the time to take those ideas and turn them into concrete format.  Make a plan and execute the plan.  Later in the day the Moon conjuncts Saturn conferring focus, concentration and determination to our projects.

Friday panda

The Moon sits in Capricorn for most of the day today as it conjuncts Pluto, trines Mars and squares Uranus.  The day can alternate between powerful, confrontational, unpredictable and back again, with many possibilities in between!  By the end of today, you will be so ready for the weekend!

It’s not that it is a bad day or anything.  It is just demanding of our time and attention.  We might feel like pushing the river, when of course that might blow up in our faces.  There is strength and high energy available today.  And, as long as we aren’t frustrated or angry, we can put that to good use in getting things done.  If frustration/anger builds up today, release it through physical activity.  And Uranus adds an element of surprise and unpredictability to the day, so be ready for anything!

Mars will be sitting at 29 Taurus as he prepares to move into Gemini on Saturday/Sunday.  Pay attention to what is ending, what is in process of completion and what possibilities are opening up for you.  Prepare for an energetic shift in your ability to take action and move forward.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius playfully engages the Sun in doing things in new, creative, innovative, and unexpected ways.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway. Situations beginning now will be cooperative and helpful to you as they progress. A general atmosphere of getting along together prevails and will continue to if you just go with the flow.

Sunday, March 31, 2019

Late last evening on the West Coast and early this morning in the East, Mars made its move out of Taurus and into Gemini and changes the energy vibe for all of us.  While in Taurus our forward momentum was slowed down as we were having to be more deliberate in the execution of our plans.  After Mars being in Aries from January into early February, you might have felt stuck or stymied in getting what you wanted.  Well that changes now as Mars in Gemini is quick witted, quick to take action, and changeable.

While Mars is in Gemini we can become interested in many things, and dabble a bit with the new and unique.  We are more versatile and flexible, but also tend to lose focus or get bored easily.  We have to watch out for scattering our energy – this can be especially exacerbated as this is a Universal Year 3 where the natural tendency is to want to expand and explore, yet we can find ourselves scattered.

How do you deal with all this quixotic energy?  Make lists, start your day in meditation, if you feel yourself becoming unfocused or scattered, take a break and move your body, make a commitment to yourself to get what you have to do done before you move onto other things, and finally, be good to yourself if you end up straying – you might just stumble onto something wonderful for use later.

That’s it for the week everyone!  Not too bad, right?  Take care & enjoy …

Have a stellar week,

Janet Hickox, Living Astrology

A Great Shift Awaits Us . . .

The question is – will you go with the shift or will you stay stuck in the old?

This is the week we have been waiting for.  The Spring/Autumn equinox gateway that leads us into the new Astrological year and the potential to remake & renew the world.  And it all begins with LOVE.  Universal Love & Love of Life itself!

In Human Design astrology, the turning of the seasons happens in the Identity Center (the yellow or white diamond central to your body graph) at the Gates of Love.  The Spring Equinox occurs with the Sun at Gate 25-Universal Love and the Earth at Gate 46-Love of the Physical Body.  It forms what is to me, the alignment we are meant to experience as human beings – Love demonstrated in physical form.  The uniting of Spirit in the Body.

The tragedy in New Zealand this week underscores the need for more Universal Love in this world, along with acceptance and tolerance.  It’s like some people have this shade of fear, hate, and anger over their eyes and just don’t see the light that is in each being in this world.  That makes me feel truly sad.  But a gateway such as this one, occurring so closely to a tragedy of this magnitude, gives me hope.

The Astrology of the Week

Most of the week pales in comparison to the Equinox/Full Moon of March 20th.  The best plan for Monday & Tuesday is to prepare for the passage through the Gateway.  What can you leave behind you?  What is no longer serving you on your journey through life?  It might be a belief, pattern, grievance, victim stance, or something more concrete like a job or relationship that is no longer thriving & flourishing. One thing is for sure, we are being squeezed through the eye of the needle right now, and the only things that can make it through are the most authentic parts of ourselves.  All else is so much baggage.

Wednesday, March 20

This week’s equinox is a very powerful one indeed!  The Sun, as it moves through the gateway meets up with Chiron, the wounded healer, and is followed by the Full Moon in Libra/Aries, opposing Chiron.  It’s right in our faces that following the “wound” a deep healing would need to take place – a release or completion of some sort that allows the new to come forward.

Sun conjunct Chiron – The wound of identity is exposed.  Insecurities, fears and unresolved ego issues surface for healing.  Happening like this with a Full Moon, which brings a time for completion and the Spring Equinox which signals something new, we have a real opportunity & duty to bring change.  Healing the wound of separation, intolerance, and non-acceptance of others is of primary importance.

Moon opposing Chiron – The Moon in Libra opposing Chiron in Aries asks us what it is we are doing/thinking or how we are being that keeps the wound alive?  When the Moon is opposite Chiron, we tend to run away from the wound by giving in to the Moon’s perceived safe harbor – in this case we are doing everything we can to keep the balance and harmony, when indeed the best course of action is to shake things up and make the necessary changes.  In order to restore harmony then, we need to address the wound of identity and how we use it as a tool for separation rather than a tool of unity.

Other Aspects Made by the Sun & Moon 

Sun @ 0 Aries semi-sextile Uranus at 0 Taurus – First, we have to define what a semi-sextile aspect means.  Really this is a minor aspect, as aspects go, but because this happens at the zero degree of each sign, it has more importance.  A semi-sextile is a 30° relationship between planets, and this is usually considered a beneficial connection.

A Sun-Uranus semi-sextile calls us to be innovative and creative change agents in the world.  How can we be different?  What can we change so that the world reflected back to us is fresh and new?  The Sun in Aries provides the pathway to something new, and Uranus in Taurus calls us to realign with our common core values.

Moon at 0 Libra inconjunct Uranus at 0 Taurus – An inconjunct is a difficult aspect, and in this case tells us that we are quite likely wanting to keep things the same – keep the status quo as it were.  BUT, Uranus isn’t the kind of planet that likes to keep things static, so we are going to be faced/challenged with what we have to let go of in order to move forward.  Might it be an old belief?  A subconscious pattern?  A paradigm?  This is not only a personal challenge, but a collective one as well.  We will be called upon to answer some difficult questions, and make decisions going forward that change the world.

Lunar Eclipse point in January – An unlikely and almost missed aspect is occurring at this Equinox/Full Moon, and that is the Sun & Moon are in favorable relationship to the last lunar eclipse we had on January 20, 2019 at 0°Leo/Aquarius. What this means is that we may see (individually or collectively) themes in our lives that were also prevalent in January.  Leo/Aquarius rules the part of our lives where dreams and goals become real and tangible.  What were you setting out as an aspiration in January, because more will be coming up for you related to that time.  We may even be seeing the “fruits of our labors” as it relates to desires and dreams.

The Inner Planets at the Equinox Through Human Design

darkblue_hdchart

Mercury – Venus – Mars are calling us to graciousness, revolution and simplicity.  It’s quite a mix actually.  Mercury and Venus are sitting in the Emotional Center and Mars is at the Throat center.  Literally they are all working together to teach us to be more emotional mature.

Mercury at Gate 22-Grace is creating the emotional space within us to evolve with more grace and charm, kindness, and honor.  As Mercury rules communication, our involution (inner evolution or inneRevolution) begins with how we speak to one another, and to ourselves.  Words have power and carry weight.  Be ever mindful of the impact of your words.

Venus at 49-Wisdom Revolution is laying the template for us stop being in REACTION and instead be in ACTION.  This involves another type of emotional maturity – that of being RESPONSE-able.  We’re learning that change and revolution begin within each of us, and is the natural outflow of our being more deliberate in the way we engage with the world.

Mars at Gate 23-Simplicity which is also an energy related to assimilation.  Breaking things down to their simplest part, then creating new forms by combining different possibilities.  What would the world look like if we made room in our hearts for more love, tolerance, and acceptance?  Could we use love as a lens to see into the essence of every single being on the planet?  In the Universe?

Jupiter – Saturn in Human Design – Spiritual seeking of the Light and the Ambition and drive to become enlightened.  This is what Jupiter and Saturn are holding space for us to achieve.  It is a personal journey, but at the Equinox, leads us onto the next rung in the spiral in our evolution of consciousness.

The Outer Planets – Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, & Pluto are bringing us change from the inside out.  Chiron at Gate 25-Universal Love is conjunct the Sun at the Equinox.  Their connection is helping us to heal the wound of our identity.

Uranus is at Gate 3-Innovation and is engaged in a grand mutation of our very DNA. The force of ascension and evolution is breaking down the old and clearing a path to the new.  All of this is totally out of our conscious control, and it akin to the unveiling of a higher cosmic plan.  Just go along for the ride!

Neptune & Pluto at Gate 63-Doubts and Gate 61-Wonder respectively, are in the Head Center.  Our minds are being broken down and re-calibrated toward truth.  This means the TRUTH – Universal Truth, not the truth that can be twisted, but the actual, God’s honest higher truths.  Granted, this may take a lot more time.  But I think we can all see that there is something larger than ourselves at work in the cosmos, that we are all a part of something extraordinary, and living from that Truth is what we are rising up to.

Like I said earlier – the rest of the week pales in comparison to this one day!

I wish everyone peace, love and joy as we move through this week!  If you want more of a daily interpretation of what is happening in the stars, join me in the MetaCafe weekday mornings at 8:00 am PT/11:00 am ET on the Living Astrology Facebook page.

Moon in Gemini – Be Sociable & Conversational

The Moon moves into Gemini this morning. Words and messages abound for the next couple of days. It’s a good time for making new contacts and developing old ones, and for putting your finger on feelings that have been waiting for the right kind of expression.

What’s Up in the Stars Today?

The Astrological Turning Point

We are in the closing two weeks of the astrological year as we wind down Piscean energy and get ready for the Astrological New Year and Aries energy. 

Weekly Astrology Forecast – March 11-17, 2019

Living Astrology logo

We are in the closing two weeks of the astrological year as we wind down Piscean energy and get ready for the Astrological New Year and Aries energy.  You could say that we have reached a turning point, where we are exiting the old and entering the new!  That makes this week’s transits important for us in terms of completion and preparation for the new astrological year.  

The early part of the week is calm enough, but as we reach Wednesday through Sunday, the energy ramps up forcing us to move through transformation and plan for what comes next.  

Let’s break down the week:

Monday – March 11, 2019

Hello MondayWe begin the week with the Moon in Taurus in a positive flow with Neptune, Saturn & Pluto, but challenging Mars in a conjunction.  Mars is in receptive, feminine Taurus, not an especially loved place for him.  The Moon’s conjunction reminds Mars that emotions are an important expression of life, but controlling one’s temper is also valuable. 

Tuesday – March 12, 2019   Tuesday

The Moon is Void-of-course from 2:31 am PT until 8:48 am PT, and then moves into the sign of Gemini.  Words and messages abound for the next couple of days. It’s a good time for making new contacts and developing old ones, and for putting your finger on feelings that have been waiting for the right kind of expression. Say what you mean, but don’t be afraid to change it, refine it, on the fly.  Watch for a tendency to scatter your energy or lose focus.  

Wednesday – March 13, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Gemini all day so we continue the conversation, sharing of information and curiosity.  The Moon is in a beautiful angle today with both Venus & Neptune, giving us a lift spiritually and injecting love into the energy of the day. 

The Sun is empowered today by a sextile to Pluto and a square to Jupiter.  We have the stamina to follow through with our commitments.  The only thing to watch out for is the tendency to want to over-do things – follow this easy rule K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple & Sustainable.  (I bet you thought I was going to say something else!)

Thursday – March 14, 2019

The Moon is Void-of-course from 5:31 am to 2:49 pm PT as it prepares to shift out of Thankful ThursdayGemini and into Cancer. Expect feelings to get a little more intense for the next few days, as the Moon is in her own home sign.  Bottled-up emotions that people have been trying to keep a lid on can come spilling out. It’s hard to say what you mean (especially with Mercury retrograde) so it is best to be utterly sincere but not say too much that might set off hidden nerves or be seen as meddling.

Mars trine Saturn  – Slow & steady wins the race!  There is no need to be in a rush or hurry now.  Take deliberate action forward and see you goals come to life!

Mercury conjunct Sun – This signals that we are about 1/2 way through the Mercury Rx cycle.  Now Mercury picks up his marching orders from the Sun, compelling us all to fix what needs to be fixed, and then be ready in the coming weeks to soar.  Don’t be concerned if a bit of crisis or turbulence accompanies this time.  It will all sort itself out!

Friday, March 15, 2019

FridayThe Moon in Cancer trines Neptune and opposes Saturn today.  We must be grounded in our Spiritual selves in order to manage the changing currents of the day.  Your intuition is high today, and choosing to listen will be a Godsend for you.  At times today, the energy may turn melancholy or low – don’t be alarmed, it’s just temporary. 

Mercury square Jupiter – Suddenly, the best laid plans are turned upside down, mostly because there are nonworking components that simply keep popping up.  Basically, it’s a time for debugging and finessing new operations and upcoming launches into shape. A better time for sorting things out than for starting anew.

Weekend blog

Saturday, March 16, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from 11:03 am PT to 5:57 pm PT today, and that means we are not really in a position to start something new or get a lot done.  If you must get something done today, do it early.  All of the Moon’s most juicy contacts happen before its VOC – high energy, empowered feelings, upbeat conversation, and possible unexpected opportunities (or conflict too….just sayin…) are all possible.     

After 5:57 pm PT, the Moon will move into the sign of Leo.  If you follow the flow for the next couple of days, creative and loving feelings can make for an almost party atmosphere.  Make a breakout, or just let the rising tide carry you along.  Be in it for the fun, play and excitement! 

Sunday, March 17, 2019 

St. Patrick's Day CloverHappy St. Patrick’s Day everyone & it should be a wonderful day with the Moon in Leo accentuating a fun and playful atmosphere, and the Moon literally not making anyone unhappy at all today!  There is one transit that we need to be aware of. 

Mercury Rx sextile Mars – Making the most of of procedures that worked in the past, turns into productive and successful ventures.  When things are in order, all runs so smoothly that you hardly notice how well it’s going. It might be a time to take a second look at what it takes to get it right so you can better maintain your path forward. 

Here’s wishing you all a stellar week!

Blessings,

Janet Hickox
