Visual of the Virgo Line Up of Planets

Virgo Sky

This is what the sky looks like with all the inner planets piled up in the sign of Virgo.  The Sun blinds us to the actual visual, but with my Star Map 3D+ app, we can see what the sky looks like even when the Sun is where the planets are located!

The planet up to the left of the Sun is Mars.

Freedom, Intimacy and Abundance

It seems this week is all about Uranus!  First Venus, then Mars, Sun and Moon trine the planet of Awakening.  So expect the unexpected, be ready for surprises and stay grounded (in your body and conscious).  Uranus tends to bring change in order to free us, not punish us, so be open-minded about what might be happening in your lives right now.  Mercury is added to the stellium in Virgo and we have a New Moon-Super Moon in Virgo later in the week.  The energy of Work, Service and Analytical thinking is in full swing

The Last Week of August

Week 5:  August 26-31      The Virgo Stellium, Uranus & New Moon

It seems this week is all about Uranus!  First Venus, then Mars, Sun and Moon trine the planet of Awakening.  So expect the unexpected, be ready for surprises and stay grounded (in your body and conscious).  Uranus tends to bring change in order to free us, not punish us, so be open-minded about what might be happening in your lives right now.  Mercury is added to the stellium in Virgo and we have a New Moon-Super Moon in Virgo later in the week.  The energy of Work, Service and Analytical thinking is in full swing!

The Human Design energies this week take us into Intimacy, Freedom and Abundance.  That is a recipe for a bit of magic to happen.  With the Sun at Gate 59 we’re focused on intimacy, creativity, and relationships.  We discover that interaction and intimacy form the doorway to evolution.  We cannot evolve and also be alone.  Through our relationships we access the spiral of consciousness.

The Earth is in the Gate 55- Abundance in Spirit.  Here we get a bit of a “spiritual awakening” as we release victimization and embrace freedom, and more FREEDOM. The Gate 55 sits on the emotional center (Solar Plexus) and not on the work center or Sacral.  What we discover is that working harder does not lead to more abundance.  Abundance is grown through our emotional resonance with it.

Later in the week the Sun moves into Gate 40 – Deliverance, which is literally another gate of Freedom!  This gate teaches us freedom for ourselves and from hardship by the correct use of will power.  When used incorrectly, willpower can lead to burnout, which can lead to exhaustion.  Adding to the lesson is the planets Venus and Mars also at this gate as if to emphasize the importance of the right use of Will.

The Earth will be at Gate 37 – Harmony.  This gate is also know by Serenity, Friendship, Peace.  All these can be yours by just understanding how to use your will to be in the flow of Universal energies.  Rather than pushing, wait for the signs and signals from the Universe on what comes next.

MondayMonday, August 26, 2019

We begin the work week with the Moon in Cancer making a host of positive connections to the planets.  Even though we know that Cancer is opposing the Saturn, South Node, Pluto elements in Capricorn responsible for changing our world, we are buoyed by the excellent relationship the Moon has today.  There’s a bit of magic in the air!

Venus trine Uranus – Tired of the same ‘ol, same ‘ol routine?  Today’s your chance to get out and do something new and exciting.  It’s time to break the monotony!  Just be careful that you don’t take things too far.  Socialize, play, expand, do something that you normally wouldn’t do.  Go see a movie that you wouldn’t normally expect you would like to see.   Whatever you do today should feel new and out of the ordinary!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12-Catalyzing.  The Universal energy of 12 is understanding everything more deeply.  Catalyzing energy (Cauac in the Mayan calendar) helps us to use creative opportunities correctly and to avoid reacting to life with drama or disappointment.

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

The Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto early today and we may feel the rush of emotion or Tuesthe tinge of emotional upset.  This is a quick aspect and will soon pass.  Don’t make too much of any emotional confrontation.  Late today, the Moon moves into Leo and our fun returns!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  13-Enlightening (Ahau in Mayan calendar).  We have reached the last day of the week in the Pleiadian-Earth calendar, and as well the last day of this calendar round (which consists of 260 days).  The Universal energy of 13 is about completing all unfinished business and integrating what we have learned in preparation for the new week that begins tomorrow.  The Earth energy of Enlightening gives us opportunity for social progress and a way to commit to new ideals.  Watch out for polarized judgments.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

WednesdayThe Moon spends the day in Leo and we can be heart centered, loving, generous and fun-loving!  There may be some unexpected things happening -especially in the outer world – as Mars meets up with Uranus.  With this duo in Earth signs it makes me think of earthquakes or earth-shaking events.  Be prepared, but don’t be scared.  We just never know how these two will get along and what they will bring to us.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  1-Being (Imix in Maya) – Today is the first day of the week and the first day of the new calendar round.  The Universal energy 1 is about initiating and starting new things.  The Earth energy of Being is also about nurturing a new beginning and being creative.  Avoid being critical, reactive or needy today.

Thursday, August 29, 2019

Today, Mercury moves into Virgo and completes the stellium that has been building since Happy-Thursday-022the 18th when Mars moved into Virgo.  Mercury is the ruler of Virgo and is powerful in this very analytical and critically thinking sign.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  2-Breathing (Ik in Maya).  The Universal energy of 2 is about Duality, and challenges us to look at and accept opposite perspectives.  The Earth energy, Breathing, asks us to harmonize multiple points of view.  We should avoid being unpredictable or fickle today.

Friday, August 30, 2019   New Moon/Super Moon in Virgo

Friday pandaEarlier in the year we had our Full Moons as Super Moons, and now is the New Moon’s turn to be super.  A Super Moon is a full or new moon that comes to within 90% of the closest the Moon ever makes to the Earth.  It has more power or influence because of its proximity to us.  The tides are higher, and since we are made up of about 75% water, we are also more pushed by the tidal forces.  This New Moon at 7 Virgo is the closest new moon approach to Earth this year.  The New Moon is also powerful this time as it conjuncts Mars and Venus as well – the masculine and feminine aspects of creative energy.  Later this week I will do a more in depth post on the New Moon and what we can expect.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  3-Listening.  The Universal Energy 3 is Creating energy.  It inspires us to create new things or to think in new ways.  The Earth energy of Listening (Akbal in Mayan calendar) shows that we are meant to practice empathy, care and responsibility in our relationships.  Being pessimistic or controlling brings out the more negative aspects of today.

Saturday, August 31, 2019

The Moon is VOC (void-of-course) for most of the day today.  The VOC begins at 1:46 am Saturday memePT and lasts until 4:08 pm PT when she moves out of Virgo and into Libra.  For the next couple of days we are relationship oriented and have the opportunity to do more to bring balance and harmony into our lives.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  4-Planting.  The Universal energy 4 is about building solid foundations that create stability in our home, family or work areas of our lives.  The Earth energy of Planting has a lucky feel to it, is energetic, and good for starting new things.  Sounds sort of like good energy to have in the shadow of the New Moon doesn’t it?

Sunday, September 1, 2019

SundayThe Moon spends all day in the sign of Libra challenging Saturn but flowing smoothly with Jupiter.  That tells me that this is a mixed bag sort of day.  We may begin with a feeling of melancholy that later transitions into optimism and hope.

Mercury trines Uranus today as Venus trines Saturn.  Thoughts, words, deeds seem to align on days like today.  There is good energy flowing between these four planets (Mercury, Uranus, Venus and Saturn).  We may be filled with great ideas that we are able to find an expression for.  In fact, the Moon challenged by Saturn (see above paragraph) could be the stimulus to our being able to express creatively.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Moving.  Even our Pleiadian energy seems to show us that we can make some movement in terms of our creative energy today.  The Universal number 5 is change which can bring surprises and revelations that totally didn’t expect!  The Earth energy of moving implies shedding the old skin in order to grow, expand and find our next level of evolution!

Make it a wonderful week everyone – it’s in your hands!

Blessings, Janet

Astrology to End July

Can you believe that July is almost over?  The Summer (or Winter if you’re down under) is just flying by!  And, lucky for us we are ending July and beginning August on a wonderful high note – a New Moon and Mercury ending his feisty retrograde.  Yippee!!

Monday, July 29, 2019

Monday memeWe begin the work week with the Moon having come out of Gemini and into Cancer early in the morning.  That means for the next few days we are dealing with our emotional natures and feeling things deeply.  Also, because Cancer as a sign is opposing Capricorn, we are also going to be dealing with the South Node, Saturn and Pluto (today & tomorrow) with the accompanying power struggles, destruction/reconstruction of something in our lives and melancholy moments.  We should be used to this by now as we repeatedly experience the emotional ups and downs of this transit each month when the Moon goes through Cancer, but also as we had Venus, Mercury and the Sun there over the last few weeks.

Today also brings us Sun square Uranus, which can be disruptive.  We may experience sudden mechanical issues, upsets/arguments with people, and possible ego clashes. The best way through this energy is to intentional find positive ways to let go of any “steam” you have been building up and thus mute the possible “explosion” of energy outward to others.  We can also be a little more accident prone during this transit.  Take care and stay in consciousness today!

From a Human Design perspective, we are still in the Sun@Gate 31 – Leadership and the Earth@Gate 41-Fantasy. During this time, we may be invited to step up and take on a leadership role.  But only if invited … this is democratic leadership, not authoritarian.  Any power grabbing behavior would not be appreciated.  Also, with Earth at Gate 41, using our imagination to create a better world is favored.  Later we will be asked to actually enact this in the outer world.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy: Remember that the number is the Universal Energy and the word represents the Earth Energy of the day.

10 – Illuminating  – The universal energy of 10 is to manifest and build upon that which we have already begun.  It can be challenging for us if we have been ignoring our work up to this point.  With the Earth in Illuminating, we are approaching the day with lightness or humor and avoiding the trauma/dramas where possible.

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Cancer opposes Saturn, South Node and Pluto.  This is the 2nd day ofTues possible emotional volatility this week.  Stay cool and allow emotions to “inform” you about what is happening without directly reacting to whatever is happening.  Late in the day, the Moon will conjunct Mercury on his last day of retrograde.  Maybe a memory of something in the past or words spoken in the past may come up to you today.  Don’t dwell on the past, again, just let it inform you.  The Moon is also trine Neptune today and that can make for some difficulty in concentrating or focusing our minds.  It is an excellent day for tapping into your intuition.  The Moon

Human Design Venus moves into Gate 31 today.  Venus represents our relationships and in Gate 31 – Leadership, we are ready to share and delegate power and leadership.  The real question is to ask yourself, “How can I serve?” Whether that is in a leadership capacity or not, the question is a good one to ask of yourself.

The moon turns void of course at 8:33 PM Pacific Time this evening an remains VOC until tomorrow morning at 6:18 AM Pacific Time.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  11-Choosing

11 is Illuminating in the Universal energy of the day.  Today brings light to help us see more clearly what is happening around us.

Choosing is the Earth Energy of the day.  Today is a great day to be able to experience collective healing and nurturing.  Settle differences today, but avoid being selfish and trying to get your own way.

Wednesday, July 31, 2019  

Hump DayWe’ve reached the high point of the week with both the second new Moon of July, this time in Leo and Mercury turning direct in Cancer happening almost simultaneously this evening. Let’s break down the day:

The Moon ends its void this morning at 6:18 AM PT/9:18 AM ET by moving into the sign of Leo in preparation for the new Moon phase. The Moon will conjunct Venus and square Uranus before its conjunction to the Sun today.

The Moon conjunct Venus in Leo is a cheerful and social connection.  We feel good and that translates outward from us to the people we are around. It’s a great time for decorating and shopping for things that beautify our lives.  Just watch the tendency to over-spend!

The Moon in Leo square Uranus in Taurus – We must be careful with this transit as it gives us an impulsive nature, and we may be on the more reactive side of anything that is said to us today.  We can be triggered easily, so now is a good time to exercise your breath before you say or do anything.

The New Moon

The new moon occurs at 8:12 PM PT/11:12 PM ET at 8 degrees Leo. What can we expect New Moonwith the new moon in Leo?  The new moon in Leo represents romance, love, and bringing joy to our lives. Leo as a sign also rules self-confidence and being recognized for our brilliance and our genius. This is a time of year for playfulness and enjoying life, and with no major aspects this month to annoy us, we are in for smooth sailing.

Things to do with this new moon:

  • express your creative genius and live your passions
  • celebrate play have fun
  • be generous with yourself, your time with those you love, and with your other resources.

Things not to do:

  • Do not be a shrinking violet – get out into the world.
  • Do not cross the line from self-centered to narcissistic or to selfishness and
  • Don’t shirk your leadership roles. Step up if you’re called upon to serve.

All in all, this is a wonderful New Moon and sets the stage for quite the pleasant month of August!

Mercury Direct

Mercury turns direct ending its 3-week retrograde phase at 8:52 PM Pacific Time. Together with the new moon this is now our green light to move forward and begin something new in earnest. One word of caution – Mercury will be crossing forward through territory he was already in … this is called the shadow period of the retrograde cycle.  You may have to finish up with some old business before you can move fully into the new.  By August 14th, Mercury will be in territory, officially ending this retrograde cycle.

Human design for this week: The new Human Design week begins today as well, with the Sun moving into Gate 33-Mindfulness & Remembering, and the Earth moving into Gate 19 – Sensitivity & Inclusion.  We are being reminded this week that the story of humanity is so much bigger than our singular perspectives are.  We are being asked to raise our consciousness to the level of Unity and begin to create the framework to experience that in our outer world.  By tuning into the inner dynamic and giving ourselves time to meditate, we can see the possibility for a new role for us in the grand tale of Humanity!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:        12 – Exploring

The Universal Day 12 is Understanding.  We are helped to know and understand our world at a deeper level and to see our role in the grand play more clearly.

The Earth Energy – Exploring – is good day for travel and harmonizing different point of view.  Watch out for being overly critical or too rigid and set in your ways.

More on the upcoming month of August later this week!  For now, have a wonderful start to your week and prepare to have fun, to play and have a wonderful break from the crazy transits we had in July!

Blessings,

A Week of Change & High Energy

July will be one of the busiest months of year because it is eclipse season, and the eclipse are occurring across the axis of Cancer/Capricorn where there is already a lot of planets for the eclipses to trigger.  Add to that a Mercury retrograde from Leo back to Cancer, and you can just about envision some chaotic moments ahead for us. 

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

Astrology, Human Design & Pleaidian-Earth Energy

July 1-7, 2019

 

Overview of the Week:

July will be one of the busiest months of year because it is eclipse season, and the eclipses are occurring across the axis of Cancer/Capricorn where there is already a lot of planets for the eclipses to trigger.  Add to that a Mercury retrograde from Leo back to Cancer, and you can just about envision some chaotic moments ahead for us.

Let’s take a look at the week ahead:

 Monday, July 1, 2019

LeoThe Moon begins the week in Gemini, and then shifts into Cancer for the New Moon.  Directly after the New Moon, the Moon will move opposite the planets in Capricorn, and we’ll be again dealing with the emotional energy around what is restructuring, reforming, and rebirthing in our lives.  Midweek to Friday July 5, the Moon will be in Leo, making our Independence Day celebrations here in the USA fun and playful.  The first weekend of the month, the Moon spends time in Virgo.  Great days to clean, clear, organize and purify your home and environment.

We start the month and 1st week off with Mars, planet of action, moving into the sign of Leo.  Until August 18, we are confident, strong-willed, and graced with physical stamina to get what we want and where we want to go.  Where this transit is playing out in your chart is where you will see progress pushed by will.

Gate 56 will be activated in your Human Design and that moves us to create a new story without the victim content!

Jupiter moves back into Gate 5- Universal Timing.  Our expansion then returns to learning to have patience, and to understand that the Divine works in its own timeline.  Watch out then for impatience, reactionary energy, and leaping into or out of things.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Listening

Universal Energy 8:  Connecting – brings us accelerated communication and abundance on all levels. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

Earth Energy – Listening (Akbal in Maya Astrology):  Practice empathy, care and responsibility.  Release pessimism, being controlling or feeling troubled.

 

Tuesday, July 2 is the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 10° Cancer.  Where that is in your chart

is where you have “jacked up” manifesting and intention setting power this month.  Keep in mind that this also widely opposes the South Node, Saturn, Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.  There is high potential for restructuring your world around kinder, gentler, and more family oriented values.

The Sun will be at Gate 39-Provocation and the Earth at Gate 38-Struggle at this new moon.  We will want to address where we feel trapped or where anger is bubbling up to the surface in our lives.  We don’t want to do this in order to beat ourselves up over it, but rather to discover where we may take dynamic action and rise to the level of liberation and becoming a Warrior of Light.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  9-Planting

Universal Energy 9 Harmonizing – This is a day for bringing more harmony into your life.

Earth Energy – Planting (Kan in Mayan Astrology):  Feeling lucky, energetic, good for new beginnings.  Watch out for immaturity and being irresponsible. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Hump DayWednesday, July 3 Venus moves into Cancer and takes on a more nurturing and protective stance, especially in relationships.  This is mothering energy and we will need to watch for out for a tendency to smother those we love.  (or being smothered by others) until July 27th when Venus moves into Leo.  That means that Venus will be opposing the South Node, Saturn and Pluto trio in Capricorn during these weeks as well.  Don’t be surprised if relationships are undergoing change either through your own or the other person’s empowerment.

Venus will be sitting at the Gate 15- Love of Humanity this week, prompting us to resonate more with unity than with separation, although the outer world may still be showing us division and polarity.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Moving

Universal Energy 10-Manifesting:  Day for building upon what we have learned and manifesting from our previous work.  It can be a challenging day if we have ignored our work up to this point.

Earth Energy – Moving (Chicchan in Mayan Astrology):    Good for exploring and educating yourself.  Avoid confrontations, blame and competition.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Thursday, July 4  – The Moon in Leo today conjuncts Mercury – perfect for the

celebratory 4th of July parties and BBQ’s here in the USA to celebrate Independence Day!  The Moon in Leo is playful and loves interaction, add Mercury in the mix and you have the possibility of many conversations and communication streams available to you.

We also enter into a long Void-of-Course Moon today from 11:25 pm PT to 9:26 pm PT on July 5.  (July 5 2:25 am to 12:26 am on July 6 for you in ET)

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  11 – Transcending  

Universal Energy 11 – Illuminating:  Brings light to help us see more clearly.

Earth Energy – Transcending (Cimi in Mayan Astrology):  A day to transcend differences, let go of what no longer serves.  Watch out for inappropriate hesitation.

 

Friday pandaJuly 5 – We’re in VOC (Void of Course Moon) all day. Not a great day to attempt to get anything of real import done.  Relax, enjoy, swim, play, or meditate.  Leave the big stuff for another day!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12 – Remembering

Universal Energy 12 – Understanding:  Helps us to understand everything more deeply.

Earth Energy – Remembering (Manik in Mayan Astrology):  Seek peace and engage in cooperation, but don’t become overly compromising.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Saturday memeJuly 6 – The Moon is in Virgo today making it a great day to organize, clean, simplify and beautify.  She is also in great relationships to Venus, Uranus and the Sun today.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  13-Loving

Universal Energy 13 – Completion:  A time for completing all unfinished business and integrating it so that we can begin a new cycle tomorrow.

Earth Energy – Loving (Lamat in Mayan Astrology):  Be enthusiastic and productive without becoming competitive or aggressive.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

July 7 – Mercury Retrograde in Leo.  From now until July 31, Mercury will be retrograde Sundayin Leo eventually backtracking into Cancer.  Where this is in your astrology chart is where you may find yourself going backwards, having to slow down, or have to re-evaluate what you are doing.  Leo rules our identity and ego selves, while Cancer rules our family, traditions and foundation.

It’s interesting to note that in this Mercury retrograde the two signs involved are ruled by our two luminaries – The Sun and The Moon.  We are connecting deeply to both our souls and our egos during this Mercury cycle.  What will you discover there in terms of your desires, your Soul’s mission and your life journey?

The Moon spends the day in Virgo and is Void of Course from 9:50 am PDT to 11:07 pm PDT when it moves into Libra.  That leaves the bulk of the day without new Moon connections which spells the potential for a peaceful day.  Spend some time in meditation, study, yoga or other spiritual  or inner pursuits.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  1-Feeling

Universal Energy 1-Initiating:  Good day for starting new things – at least on paper or in idea form.

Earth Energy – Feeling (Muluc in Mayan Astrology) – We have a chance to deal with our emotions today.  Watch out for emotional reactivity though. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

That’s it for this week.  I hope you all have a blessed week!

Love,

Wormholes & Miracles – The High Potential of This Week’s New Moon

The power of the week we are in where “wormholes” connect us to powerful places, information, people and opportunities.  As if by magic and miracles we find ourselves in the exact right place at the exact right time.  It’s rather exciting, but more than that it is a hint at our true potential when we are aligned with Universal timing energies.

Astrology Transits for June 3-9, 2019

Welcome to the first week in June!  Can you believe it?  Time is certainly flying by, and I hope you are making the most of it.

Speaking of making the most of it – Yesterday I was driving with my husband down to Coupeville, WA, a quaint town with some shops, great restaurants and a boardwalk.  As we were driving, I got this feeling inside of wanting to break out and break free.  I wanted to spend my days exploring, adventuring, hiking, playing and I didn’t want to just stay in my safe little placed anymore tucked away from everything.  It almost felt like a “Call of the Wild,” a wanting or hunger to escape the dull and the routine.  What I didn’t know, is that I had tapped into the energy of the first week of June!

If you are a follower of my weekday morning show on Facebook, The MetaCafe, then you have heard me talk about several types of astrology:  Western Astrology, Human Design Astrology, the Gene Keys, Mayan Astrology, and recently we’ve been talking about Pleiadian-Earth Energy Astrology and the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar that goes with it.  Unbeknownst to my “conscious” mind, yesterday was 4-Exploring.  The 4 represents the Universal Energy of the day, which is foundational, supporting our building of firm roots to bring stability to our lives, and then the Earth Energy of the day was Exploring. Exploring is about seeing the world, travel and harmonizing opposite points of view.  Interesting that even though I consciously didn’t connect with the day’s energy, on the Spirit level I was totally in synch with it!

Such is the power of the week we are in where “wormholes” connect us to powerful places, information, people and opportunities.  As if by magic and miracles we find ourselves in the exact right place at the exact right time.  It’s rather exciting, but more than that it is a hint at our true potential when we are aligned with timing energies that are NOT our Gregorian calendar or other “mechanical” ways of being or knowing.  Let’s break down the week ahead:

Monday, June 3, 2019

Copy of UntitledWe begin the week with the New Moon in Gemini at 3:03 am PT/6:03 am ET/10:03 am UTC.  Gemini influences many things: Motion, Learning, Communication, the Mind, Social skills, Nervousness, Indecision.  In the body, Gemini influences:  Hands, Wrists, Arms, Shoulders, Hay Fever, Lungs & Breathing, Nervous System.  As a new Moon is about starting something new, or setting intentions for whatever it is you want next, any of the above are areas where you can find alignment with the Gemini new Moon. Where do you want to go?  Who do you want to be?  What is your message to the world?  The magic in the new Moon, is the ability to see or sense a pathway forward to live your most wonderful life!

Later in the day the new Moon opposes Jupiter and as long as it is our own idea, we feel generous and giving toward others.  However, if we feel like we’re being pushed into generosity, an emotional response could occur for us.  This is a great day to do some inner spiritual work around goals and aspirations – aligning yourself more powerfully with your intentions and what you want to manifest in your life!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy Day:  6-Seeing.  Six is the Universal energy of FLOW with movement happening on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, dimensional).

The Earth energy of the day is SEEING.  We are in tune with new ideas with amazing potential action on our ideas as well.  This is a day to pay attention to the details, and avoid rash decisions or “knee-jerk” actions/reactions.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Today is a quiet day with the Moon transitioning early in the day from Gemini into TuesdayCancer.  Our emotions take center-stage for the next couple of days.  We see through an emotional filter, and respond through that filter as well.

The Moon conjuncts Mercury today, and we are able to put feelings into words.  This can be very helpful energy if you have something you need to communicate with someone that is of an emotional nature.  The real wormhole or miracle in this connection today, is that we are ready to take responsibility for and own our emotions.  We can learn how to use emotional energy to inform us of what is going on inside rather than blurp it outward onto other people.  Communicating in the light rather than from the shadow.

This afternoon Mercury moves into Cancer for the next few weeks and all our communication and even our minds are in feeling mode.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy Day:  7-Intuiting. 

Universal Energy 7 is Merging.  The opportunity today is to be able to merge our consciousness with that of others.  We can tap into what they’re feeling, what they really are communicating with us, and see the truth of who they are.

Earth Energy:  Intuiting.  Today is about our innate ability to recognize what is real and what is not. Watch out for reacting emotionally (overreacting) to what is going on around you today.

Wednesday, June 5, 2019

Hump DayThe Moon is in Cancer all day today and conjuncts Mars, flows nicely with Neptune and opposes Saturn.  To me this spells mixed bag kind of day.  The potentials exists for conflict and confrontation, emotionally connecting with Spirit, and also some feelings of melancholy and depression.

Moon conjunct Mars:  You may find it difficult today to contain anger.  Low energy expression – you lash out or start a confrontation with someone (or vice-versa) or high expression is you recognize the anger, process it and release it without conflict.

Moon trine Neptune:  You may feel dreamy and imaginative today.  But this transit also helps keep the emotional tone down as it stimulates our empathy and compassion.

Moon opposing Saturn:  We may briefly feel alone and isolated or cold and unfeeling.  This is a transit of melancholy and at times, depressive moods.  However, this is brief.  The beautiful part of this time, is that when we come out at the other end, we feel a stronger connection to one another.

The wormhole and miracle for today is our recognition that emotional energy is transitory and overreacting to it in the moment is painful, while allowing it to flow through us is a pathway to inner peace.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Evolving

Universal Energy 8:  Connecting for communication and abundance on all levels.

Earth Energy Evolving:  New possibilities emerge as we take care of our own evolution.  Watch out for disappointment if plans fall apart today. Disappointment is an emotion that will soon pass as other opportunities show up.

Thursday, June 6, 2019

The Moon spends half the day in Cancer and the other half in Leo making connections to Thankful ThursdayPluto, Venus and Uranus. Today we really get a chance to see how the Moon can create moodiness where one minute we’re down and the next we’re up.

Moon opposing Pluto – This transit occurs while most of us are sleeping and so may play out in your dreams.  We feel the pressure to push our way into something or to make progress.  The message however, is to have patience and go with the flow.  It makes the journey so much easier.

Moon sextile Venus –   Mutual trust, love and beneficial connections with one another mark this transit.  We have each others backs, if you will, and it feels marvelous.

Moon square Uranus – And then, it all falls apart and dissolves into pointless arguments.  That is, of course, unless you recognize what is happening, and don’t fall prey to that kind of thinking.  Instead, value each others input and uniqueness.   Maybe take a step back until the mood changes and then see with new eyes.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  9 Self-Regulating

Universal Energy 9 is Harmonizing.  It’s a day for bringing more harmony into your life.

Earth Energy:  Self-Regulating – Doing what you do best, and being true to YOU.  Some days we have to make hard choices, and today may be one of those days.  Watch out for confusion. You may have to wait to make decisions or take action until you get clarity.

Friday pandaToday Mercury and Uranus meet up and treat us to new ideas, discoveries and a sense of excitement.  This is a great day to try new solutions to old problems or resolve old issues.  We have access today to new levels of consciousness, exactly what Einstein thought we needed in order to solve our problems.

The Moon in Leo today sextiles the Sun and trines Jupiter, making this a feel good kind of day!  If only we could bottle up this kind of day and drink it on the more difficult days!  We are warm and generous with our time, we want to help one another, and we expand our optimism outward to the world.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Catalyzing

Universal Energy is 10 – Manifesting:  It’s a day for making connections and manifesting the next layer of our work.

Earth Energy:  Catalyzing:  Seeing and using challenges as creative opportunities.  It would be a waste of today’s “feel good” energies to react with drama or disappoint to any challenges.

Weekend

Saturday, June 8, 2019

The Moon spends most of the day in Leo – let’s play, dance, sing, socialize or hang out with friends or family!  Later in the day, the Moon moves into Virgo and for the next few days we are more practical, organized, and detail-oriented.

Venus moves into Gemini today trying on her social butterfly garb for the next few weeks.  We are more sociable and outgoing now, and we are willing to try new things and dabble in new pursuits.  One small drawback, what we like and resonate to now may not be the same things we enjoy later.  Be prepared for the short term fad.  In other words, don’t change the fundamental you in the process of trying the new.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  11-Enlightening.  This combination is all about LIGHT.

Universal Energy:  11 (Illuminating).  Bring in the light to help us see more clearly.

Earth Energy – Enlightening:  We see new pathways for engaging with one another in a more ideal way. Social progress is possible now  Watch out for polarizing and divisive judgments.

Sunday, June 9, 2019

I bet we can get a lot done today as the Moon in Virgo connects with Mercury, Mars, Neptune, the Sun, Saturn and Jupiter!  You know what this feels like to me?  Like the honey bee going from flower to flower doing her job of pollinating!  We’re busy little bees today.

The Sun today is square Neptune and the Moon.  We’ve reached the first crisis point of the new Moon, the “crisis of action.”  We may be faced with something that doesn’t quite fit with our intentions, and we have to choose to move around the block or rework the plan of action. Whatever you do, do not give up on your intention.  Go with the flow and see where it takes you.  Sun square Neptune can make it difficult for us to stay grounded in reality.  We may be reaching for ideals while the real world isn’t in alignment.  Don’t get discouraged.  Use common sense and attention to detail to move through the day.  There is also the possibility that we feel low-energy today, so take it easy, do what feels good, leave the rest for another day!

Wormhole potential for today:  Tuning in to the natural cycles and rhythms of your body.  Rest when it is tired, eat when it is hungry, play when it demands play.  So much of our energy is devoted to DOING, we forget that REST is also a required.  You are a Human BEing, not a Human DOing.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12- Being.  I’m loving the coherence between the astrology of the day and the Pleiadian-Earth Energy calendar!

Universal energy 12 (Understanding) – Helps us to see and understand our world more deeply and clearly.

Earth Energy – Being:  Be nurturing and creative.  Avoid being reactive or critical.  Just enjoy!

Well that’s it for this week everyone!  Make it a good one!

Love,

Janet Hickox

Mind Your Mind & Words This Week

Mercury is the Focus for the Week!

This week the planet Mercury (in Aries) is in focus as well as a New Moon in Taurus.  Mercury is known as the messenger planet.  He both receives and transmits information depending upon the relationship he is in at the moment with the other planets.  Be ready this week then for communication, ideas and information to flow to you and through you.

There is an exciting element to all of this communication as well, especially as we get to the end of the week and the New Moon in Taurus.  If you’ve been taking note of what Mercury is delivering, then the new beginning implied by this new Moon should be an easy one for you.  Taurus rules our values, finances, self-worth, and the practical, down-to-Earth expression of life.  The potential is that you can really make some headway on whatever it is you have been working on.  Just stay open, listen deeply, and let mind be guided by your inner voice.

Let’s break down the week day by day:

Monday, April 29, 2019 – 

Mondays on MetaCafeThe Moon in Pisces today opens up our intuitive and creative channels, and we begin the week in a quiet place.  Mondays with the Moon in Pisces are often the ones where we wish we had one more day to sleep in and be lazy.  But today, the Moon and Sun come together to create an ease and flow to the day.  Things may come together in miraculous and magical ways when we step back and allow.  What may the day bring you?  Relax and go with the flow and you just might find out!

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 – 

The Moon is in Pisces all day today and conjuncts Neptune, squares Mars, sextiles bothTues Saturn & Pluto, and squares Jupiter.  Sounds like a lot packed into one day doesn’t it? Added to this is Mercury sextile Mars – read as more busy!

While the Moon’s connections today are many, they seem to be tuning us in and refining our antenna, so to speak.  As this week has many Mercury connections (communication, the mind and more) this works to our advantage.  Listen deeply and consciously to what is being whispered to you now.  Meditate to quiet some of the busyness.

Mercury (Aries) sextile Mars (Gemini) – Today is a busy day, and you will find yourself wanting to work independently, especially if you are furthering work on a personal project!  You find confidence in your ideas and beliefs which will help you take advantage of opportunities presented to you today.

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Wednesday The Moon moved into Aries this morning and the pace of the week seems to pick up a bit.  Moon in Aries can make for impatience, interpersonal conflict, and possible rash thinking and action-taking.  But, it is also a time for thinking in new and fresh ways.  Be open to hearing what others are saying, especially if you are at the receiving end of someone’s irritation.  There just may be something of value for you to hear.  You don’t have to respond to anything anyone is telling you, just listen.

Mercury (Aries) square Saturn (Capricorn) – Mercury in Aries has been a busy and at times, an explosive deliverer of messages to us.  Squaring Saturn, Mercury shows where we still have work to do in the restructuring and reformatting of our minds, beliefs and patterns.

Thursday, May 2, 2019

The Moon in Aries today is conjunct Venus and sextile Mars.  Charm abounds and an Happy-Thursday-022atmosphere of love and desire allows for all sorts of pleasantries.  Both the masculine and feminine are working in harmony and that stimulates creativity that can extend into the new Moon window of the weekend.  Ask yourself this, “What more is possible for me?”

Mercury (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn) – Don’t force your ideas or opinions on others today.  Remember that these are things that you should be invited to share with others.  Watch for compulsive thinking today.  If you use the energy wisely, you will gain access to personal insights that help you move forward in your life.

Mercury (Aries) trine Jupiter (Sagittarius) – Today is a great day to look forward to the future and plan for those projects that support you moving forward.  Commercial and business deals are favored today.  It’s a great day for buying and selling as your mind is sharp and luck seems to be on your side!

Friday, May 3, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon is Void-of-course today from 1:47 am PT/3:47 am ET to 1:18 pm PT/4:18 pm ET.  That means it is a slower day today.  It won’t be a good day to start something new – besides we’re in the dark of the Moon – so clear off your desk, finish up what has been left undone or take some time to meditate!  Once we get to the afternoon, the Moon moves into Taurus and the energy picks up just in time for the 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 time to be hasty or flighty has flown, the atmosphere favors practical beauty, the grace of being in touch with nature itself. Simplicity works, traditional fare is ever elegant.

Saturday, May 4, 2019

New Moon at 14° Taurus – 3:45 pm PT/ 6:45 pm ET/ 10:45 pm UT

The new Moon in Taurus favors grounded beginnings.  That means that when our ideas,New Moon Taurus plans and actions are in alignment, magical manifestation can occur.  We need to set powerful, emotionally connected intentions in the NOW. 

Taurus is about the material world, money and abundance.  It’s a good time to check in on how you are holding up financially.  Do you need to set some new goals to be more solvent, or be a better steward of your money and resources?  Remember that the financial markets play the long game and that means you may experience ups and downs, but it is patience that wins out.  Don’t panic if you sense an approaching crisis, but take steps to ensure your security … not from FEAR mind you, but from a place of caution. 

The Moon and Sun align with Neptune during this time, making us more receptive to hearing messages from our guides, angels, inner selves or other helpful humans in our lives.  Be discerning and use your intuition to clear up any confusion your mind throws at you.  Listen from deep within your soul. 

Sunday, May 5, 2019

SundayThe Moon in Taurus today trines both Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn.  There is a stability and power in the flow of energy today, but it is hidden by the Mars opposite Jupiter transit (see below).  Remember that a solid foundation is required in order to support your efforts in the world, and destabilizing the foundation can lead to disastrous consequences, so build confidently and carefully.  

Mars (Gemini) opposes Jupiter (Sagittarius) – Caution!  Don’t overestimate your abilities, talents or the time it will take to do something today!  There is luck to be had today in utilizing right timing to get what you want done.  However, there is also the possibility of creating instability in your life if you do not stay within your own boundaries or limitations.  This is a feel good day, and if you use the energy correctly, you will amaze others at how much you were able to get done!

I wish you all a fabulous week ahead!  Remember I will be out of town from May 1-7 so the MetaCafe will be on hiatus until then.

Much Love,

Janet Hickox

New Moon in Aries

The new moon portal this month comes on the heels of the South Node/Pluto conjunction and just before the South Node/Saturn conjunction.  What’s new is what is being destroyed, and what is being destroyed is making way for what’s new.  It’s all a part of the birth/death/rebirth energy that we are going through as we elevate our energies in our evolution of consciousness.

Aries New Moon – April 5, 2019 @ 15° Aries

Happy First New Moon of the Astrological Year!

 

Moon Musings

New MoonThe new moon portal this month comes on the heels of the South Node/Pluto conjunction and just before the South Node/Saturn conjunction.  What’s new is what is being destroyed, and what is being destroyed is making way for what’s new.  It’s all a part of the birth/death/rebirth energy that we are going through as we elevate our energies in our evolution of consciousness.  For April’s part in this drama, it is about the creation of space – the space in which to create what is sustainable for us as we move on.  As we have learned, nothing is sustainable if we do not have a solid foundation at the beginning.  The empty space allows us to shore up and build anew on a solid foundation.  

Further, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node are intense, karmic and powerful.  We cannot be mamby-pamby in the face of what is moving within, without, and around us.  We have to take the time to get REAL and do what we need to do to release old ancestral karma and old energy around our lineages, lest we hang onto victimization.  Victim stuff is so last century! 

What do we do in the face of this intensity?  Well, we stop resisting the changes that are going on within us.  I think we could say that this is a great time for all of us to learn how to “let go & let God.”  A part of our journey through this new Moon portal in Aries will be about releasing, embracing the unknown, purging and purifying to make room for what is new, alive, healthy and evolutionary.    

Intentions for this New Moon

  • New Beginnings – This is the perfect time to set intentions as this is the first New Moon of the Astrological year!  The sky is the limit!  What would you create if you knew you could not fail?  
  • Courage & Strength- What fears do you think hold you back from being all you want to be or doing all you want to do?  This is a great time to let go – surrender those fears.  Or … feel the fear and do it anyway! 
  • The Self – Aries rules not only the physical body, but anything you can put the word Self in front of:  Self-respect, Self-Acceptance, Self-respect and more!  Dare to request the highest and best for yourself!  It’s not selfish to want to be fully in your power in order to give to others from your best SELF.  
  • Other areas that Aries rules are:  Self-Discovery, Innocence, Authenticity, Independence, Honesty, Leadership, Exploration, Competition and in the physical body Aries rules the eyes, head, acne, headaches, brain.  In the more low frequency realm Aries rules, Selfishness, Vanity, Anger & Impatience.  The idea being that you can set intentions in any one of these areas with this new Moon.

What Else?  – The following information is in general for each of the signs.  If you want a more personal reading of what the New Moon or the Astrological Transits are bringing you, then please get a Transit Reading from me.

Aries – The New Moon in Aries falls in your 1st House of Self.  There is a new you emerging at this time.  You may have chosen some new pathway and are now embarking on the journey that leads you to something that you have been waiting for.  Be proactive, be brave and DARE to be your true you!  

Taurus – The New Moon in Aries falls in your 12th House of the Hidden, Self-sabotage and the Sub-conscious Mind.  Taurus you must look deep within you at this time to see why you hesitate to charge ahead in new and exciting ways.  Is there some fear locked in your subconscious mind that it is time to let go of?  Process through what is holding you back, and claim your good, your abundance and your birthright! 

Gemini – The New Moon is in your 11th House of Wishes, Dreams & Vision.  What you can dream, you can achieve is your mantra for this new Moon in Aries.  Take the time to establish first your dream, then the steps that will help you get there.  Write them down, and don’t be afraid to add or subtract as time goes on!  What are your highest aspirations?  Aim high and let your spirit soar.    

Cancer – The New Moon in Aries is in your 10th House of Career & Profession (your worldly self).  Cancer you are playing host to the North Node and are being opposed by Saturn & Pluto & South Node in Capricorn.  For you it is all about staking a claim to your authority and refusing to play small anymore.  What do you need to put your best foot forward?  Find it, do it and see how your authentic self can shine through.

Leo – The New Moon is in your house 9th House of Expansion, Optimism & Faith.  Leo you are poised on the threshold of great things.  As this New Moon falls in a fellow fire sign, there is the potential for spectacular movement forward or a crash & burn.  The difference between the two is measured by how much of what you’re doing is a call from your heart versus how much you are doing because you think you “have to.”  Err on the side of heart-centered intentions and you will be in great shape! 

Virgo – The New Moon is in your 8th House of Sex, Death/Rebirth & Other People’s Money.  Virgo you are at a pivot point.  Your next steps should be ones that support the transformation you are undergoing and should be at your own pace.  Use your eye for detail to zero in on what you need to do to become more financially healthy, physically healthy and spiritually healthy.  In my mind, your ruling planet is Chiron and he is also placed in Aries right now.  The high side is that you have motivation to purify your environment and live more holistically.  What’s stopping you?  

Libra – The New Moon is in your 7th House of Relationships – Business & Personal.  Libra this is a great New Moon for you as it supports your favorite thing – relationships!  The potential exists for new or deepening interactions with the people in your life right now.  Extend yourself a bit, create new win-win situations with those around you.  Maybe reaching out to new people will help you establish a supportive network of co-creators.  What you don’t want to do is give too much of yourself away in the process.  Remember you’re represented by the Scales – so keep it balanced! 

Scorpio – The New Moon in your 6th House of Work, Service, Health.  Scorpio, your ruling planets Mars & Pluto have been in very powerful places over the last few months.  Have you burned yourself out?  Are you mentally, emotionally, physically drained?  If so, then this month is the absolute best time to take care of YOU!  Get a massage, take a vacation, turn off the tech and get some downtime from all the stimulation.  You will be recharged and ready to go in no time at all!  This is Be Good to YOU Month!  

Sagittarius – The New Moon is in your 5th House of Joy, Creativity, Children & Risk-taking.  Sagittarius, are you fairly bursting with new creative ideas, ticking down the days to that vacation, or spending more time with the children in your life?  Well these are the things that support you and make you feel good through this New Moon portal.  There are trips to take, fun to plan, adventures to partake in and you have the energy to do them all.  Just beware of taking too many risks – take “calculated” risks – the kind where you know what the pitfalls might be, and understand the cost-benefit ratios.  Prepare to have FUN!

Capricorn – The New Moon is in your 4th House of Home, Family & Foundations.  Dear Capricorns, you are under the most pressure right now of all the Zodiac signs.  You ordinarily have a flair for business and the savvy to be successful there.  But with Pluto, Saturn and the South Node all in your territory you may be feeling the weight of the world.  This new Moon affords you the opportunity to get some grounding under your fee by spending time with family and enjoying more emotional connections than usual for you.  There are great changes going on for you, and you have plenty of time for business next month.  So take a break and enjoy those people you love and who love and support you this month.  

Aquarius – The New Moon is in your 3rd House of Communication, the Mind & Teaching/Learning.  Aquarius your busy mind is busier than usual, if that is even possible!  The New Moon is well placed for you to network, share your ideas, be more brilliant than usual, and start new projects that engage teaching, learning or communication.  Want to teach a new subject or learn something new?  Take advantage as your mind is sharp and you have access to innovative approaches to putting your best ideas into action.  Just don’t let your mind get carried away with you! 

Pisces – the New Moon is in your 2nd House of Money, Resources & Self-worth. Time to put your feet to the fire Pisces and do what is necessary to earn more money or get your financial life moving ahead.  You have plenty of ideas on how that can happen, but unless you actually take action steps and DO something, they will remain up in your imagination and never get “down to Earth.”  This is not a time to engage in escapist behaviors, but this is a marvelous time to put your imagination to good use in the real world.   

Wishing you all a stellar New Moon in Aries! 

Love, Janet 

 

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.

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

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!

Thursday, April 4, 2019

 

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

Happy Chinese New Year – the Year of the Dog

 

Moon Musings

ImageJ=1.43uThe new moon portal this month features a Sun, Moon, and Mercury conjunction, meaning that the personality, soul, and mind are all vying for your attention. We may have to step back and become more objective in order to see the path ahead of us. The trio of planets are in a favorable aspect to Jupiter (planet of growth and expansion), so it’s very possible that optimism is high. When we align ourselves with our truth, we can make great strides, especially when we think outside of the box in setting our intentions for the month.

Use this moon to ask yourself, “What more is possible?” Are you seeing the big picture? Don’t be afraid to call out your uniqueness, your individuality, the one thing you can do or share better than anyone else. Pay attention to how you are listening. Are you listening with an open heart or a closed mind? These are great questions to journal about this month in any context: relationships, money, health, career, creativity.

Don’t be a lone wolf. Get out and share ideas. Talk with your neighbors, friends, and like-minded contacts. Be aware of stagnation. Be willing to try new things, and exercise your own will and mind in the world. Avoid taking on anyone else’s “stuff”. Their burdens are theirs. Empathy does not mean that you take on their experiences.

Intentions for this New Moon

  • Innovation & Revelations – This is the perfect time to set intentions to find new approaches to the work you are doing.  Ask for a revelation or epiphany to add new life and energy to your life!  
  • Altruism & Having a Bigger Worldview – For too long we have worked from a greed-based worldview.  Here is the perfect opportunity to see how what you do (ie your gifts, talents, and skills) can aid the wider world.  How can you share more or broaden the base of people you serve?  
  • Divination Tools – Did you know that Aquarius rules Astrology, Numerology, Tarot, the I-Ching and other divination tools?  That makes this a perfect time to set out to share your talents through divination or to receive a reading via your favorite divination tool!
  • Other areas that Aquarius rules are:  Friendships, Groups/Associations, Networking, Objectivity, Freedom, and in the body Aquarius rules the Ankles, Calves, Circulation, Cramps & Spasms, and Varicose Veins.  The idea being that you can set intentions in any one of these areas with this new Moon.    

Zodiac constellations

What Else?  – The following information is in general for each of the signs.  If you want a more personal reading of what the New Moon or the Astrological Transits are bringing you, then please get a Transit Reading from me.

Aries – The New Moon in Aquarius falls in your 11th House of Wishes, Dreams, Humanitarianism, Friendships/Associates.  Dare to dream the big dream!  Don’t play small – it is your time to reach for the stars! 

Taurus – The New Moon in Aquarius falls in your 10th House of Career, Profession and Reputation.  Your focus is on your world self.  Are you living from your authority, and being authentic?  If not, then this is your opportunity to re-invent yourself in a way that is totally true to YOU. 

Gemini – The New Moon is in your 9th House of Growth, Expansion.  It is time to broaden your horizons, your reach, and your wow factor!  While the year is focused on being somewhat conservative, this moon provokes you to see beyond where you are to where you could be! 

Cancer – The New Moon in Aquarius is in your 8th House of Sex, Death & Rebirth focusing your attention on what needs transforming in your life.  Since the 8th House also rules credit & debt, perhaps it is time to do a financial house-cleaning?  Make a plan that reduces your debt, or maybe this is all about new streams of income!
