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

What’s Up in the Stars for August?

Dates to Watch this Month:

  • August 11 – Jupiter turns Direct
  • August 11 – Mercury into Leo
  • August 11 – Uranus turn retrograde
  • August 15 – Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo
  • August 18 – Mars into Virgo
  • August 21 – Venus into Virgo
  • August 23 – Sun into Virgo
  • August 29 – Mercury into Virgo
  • August 30 – New Moon-Super Moon in Virgo

For all the entries on the list above, August is really a decent month.  We have a stellium of planets in Leo that promote fun, play, creativity and relaxation, and then a stellium in Virgo later in the month that supports our healing, working and sharing our gifts with the world.  After July’s craziness, this is great news!

Let’s break it down by the weeks:

Week 1:  August 1-4    Let the Fun Begin!

CelebrateWe have just entered the New Moon window from 7/31’s new moon in Leo.  Earlier in the week we experienced a potent Sun square Uranus with possible disruptions, upsets and accident-proneness and it continues Friday August 2, when Venus (relationships, values, money) squares Uranus.  Watch out for disruptions with the people in your world – this isn’t a good time to pick a fight.  If anything, this would be great for developing diplomacy and applying love energy to your relationships!  Take care when spending money.  You want to make sure you are getting the stated value for your dollars spent.

Sunflower

Week 2:  August 5-11  – Jupiter Week!

I’m calling this Jupiter week, as almost every day resonates with some type of Jupiter energy.  Remember that Jupiter represents growth, expansion, and the wisdom we gain through our ever-evolving consciousness.

Monday 8-5-19:   The Moon will be in Libra and thus triggers the Capricorn Saturn, South Node and Pluto.  This makes for opportunities to bring balance to what is changing in our lives.  There is also a trine with Moon, Sun and Jupiter which gives us the confidence and emotional depth to be able to stay the course of our development.

Tuesday 8-6-19:  The Moon is in Libra for the first part of the day and then soon transits into Scorpio where it will oppose Uranus in Taurus.  The Moon in Scorpio is deeply passionate and emotionally intense.  As a fixed sign Scorpio doesn’t always embrace change, yet today may be one of those days where change is necessary!  Don’t be afraid to go with the flow.

Wednesday 8-7-19:  Today the Sun meets up with Jupiter for some free flowing, feel good energy!  Whatever you are passionate about, today is the day to spend quality time in the doing of it.  That could mean that play is your passion today or being creative.  Whatever it is, have fun!

Thursday 8-8-19:  Today Venus, Goddess of love, relationships, values and money meets up with Jupiter.  As the Sun did yesterday, this triggers some feel good energy directed this time toward the people in our lives.  Today would be a wonderful day to hang out with loved ones or meet new like-minded people.  Just enjoy the warmth and love that is all around you!  Later this afternoon, the Moon moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, Jupiter’s home territory, which ramps up the opportunities to have a good time.

About the only thing to watch out for today is the Moon’s square (challenge) to Mars in Leo.  The Moon in Scorpio represents depth, and Mars in Leo is engaged in fun and play.  Remember there is a time and a place for everything, so don’t take play over the top and as well, don’t the Moon’s emotions take you over the top.

Friday 8-9-19:  Today the Moon in Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter and trines Venus.  That makes for a day of optimism and seeing the bright side of everything.  It could be a great day to step back from the “details” and see the bigger picture of your life or what you are trying to accomplish.

Saturday 8-10-19:  The Moon is still in adventure-seeking, mind-expanding Sagittarius today.  Maybe spend the day investigating things you haven’t before or going to new places that seem exciting or new.  There is one small blip on the screen today and that is the Moon square Neptune, which may mean a tendency to daydream or act from the subconscious.  If you’re engaged in anything dangerous or needing full concentration be super careful today!  This can also bring up spiritual awareness during the day as well.

Sunday 8-11-19:  We have reached the single most important or impactful day of the week and indeed, the month of August.  Today the planet Jupiter ends his 4-month retrograde cycle by moving direct in Sagittarius, Mercury moves back into Leo after ending his retrograde cycle on July 31, and Uranus, planet of awakening and surprises, turns retrograde in Taurus. So what can we expect?

Anytime a planet changes directions or changes signs it affects the quality of the energies we express.  When you put 3 of them doing a change on the same day, it adds some chaos to the day.

JupiterJupiter Direct – Jupiter Direct means that we are again able to grow and expand into our outer world.  Here is where we need caution so that we do not over-do anything.  This is an optimistic and expansive time for Jupiter, but you don’t want to realize too late that you cannot sustain anything you have put into motion.  Cautious risk-taking and proportional growth is what is required now.  This is especially true because over the last 4 months of retrograde you may have felt stuck and now with new energy you may go to far too fast.

Mercury into Leo – Mercury in Leo speaks with a flair for the dramatic and with passion.  We can command the attention of those around us and use our minds in very creative ways.  We’ll have to look out for dominating conversations instead of sharing the limelight.  Also, with Mercury in Leo we may over-state or exaggerate what we can do.  Be sure not to promise the world if you cannot deliver it!

Uranus retrograde –   Uranus retrograde starts today at 6° Taurus and ends on January 10, 2020, at 2° Taurus. This is a good time to shift on the inner planes in response to the outer world changes you have been through. Let your inner world be rocked in a way that is revolutionary, evolutionary and consciousness-raising!

Sunflower

Week 3:  August 12-18, 2019    Full Moon in Aquarius This Week!

This week powers us up a bit with a Venus-Sun conjunction, the Full Moon across Aquarius & Leo, Mercury square Uranus and the beginning of the inner planets’ move into Virgo.

So far this month we have had a stellium (a collection of 3 or more planets in the same sign) in Leo, pushing us to play, have more fun, and express our creativity.  Moving into this 3rd week of August we begin to see a shift from the creative imagination in Leo into the actual “bring it to life” energies of Virgo.  Virgo has an eye to the details, and that may be just the thing we need to manifest our dreams into the real world.  Let’s look at some details for this week:

Monday, August 12, 2019

We start the week with the Moon in Capricorn, and I hope you know what that means by now – that’s right a Moon conjunct Saturn, South node and Pluto kind of day.  Time for stabilizing what is changing in your life.  Watch for emotional reactions.  The Moon turns Void-of-course at 3:12 pm PT/6:12 pm ET in preparation for her move into Aquarius tomorrow.

Tuesday August 13, 2019

The Moon moves into Aquarius this morning at 8:36 am PT/11:36 am ET, ending her Void-of-course time.  There is a Moon opposition Mercury today that may provoke us to speak more emotionally or think more emotionally today.  Then later in the day the Moon squares Uranus, and if we have not gotten our emotions controlled, we may be tempted to blurt out our frustrations or feelings.  Be careful of being reactive today!

Venus conjuncts Sun today:  Venus and the Sun meet up today in Leo.  This transit goes a long way in soothing what might be other “tricky” energies of the day.  When Venus and the Sun connect, we feel more affectionate and loving toward the people in our lives.  We’re inspired to be creative and to beautify our environments.  Bask in the glow of love, romance and creativity today!

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

The Moon spends the entire day in quirky, innovative and inventive Aquarius.  There are no major contacts with other planets, so we can remain open to receiving impulses from our intuition in preparation for tomorrow morning’s Full Moon in Aquarius.  What will you do or be that is uniquely YOU? Dare to think and act “outside of the box.”

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Full Moon @ 22 Aquarius/Leo at 5:30 am PT /8:30 am ET.

Today the Moon holds an opposition to the Sun (the Full Moon), Venus and Mars.  This Aquarius Full Moonfull Moon is really about what you must release in order to move forward with creativity, love and joy.  What must you do to be more heart-centered and in alignment with your desires.

Sun, Venus, and Mars are holding space in Leo (the heart centered part) and with the Full Moon in Aquarius we get to march to the beat of our own unique drum!  If you have been attempting to remain invisible or on the other hand, if you have been calling to much attention to yourself, now is the time to balance and harmonizing the two extremes to be the expression of your true, authentic self.

Another facet of the Full Moon this month is some challenging energy being shared with Pluto, Lord of Transformation.  Pluto could be stirring up issues around power and empowerment for you.  What does it take to become empowered?  Are you taking power away from those around you, or do you see your inherent power and beauty? There could be a bit of a struggle for us to see the truth in this.

Friday, August 16, 2019   

After a short Void-of-course last evening, the Moon moved into the sign of Pisces where she spends the day today.  The Moon in Pisces is a dreamy and imaginative placement.  We may find it difficult to focus on the “real” world as we are busy in the ideal realm.  There is real compassion and empathy in the Moon in Pisces.  Remember to factor that compassion and empathy inward toward yourself as well as to others.

Mercury square Uranus today – When Mercury squares Uranus we may become aware of nervous energy flowing through us or others in our lives.  There’s an electrical current that we can feel between our mind and the communication of our thoughts.  We may be filled with ideas and excitement.  Just don’t let this energy overtake you and get you moving in too many directions at once!

Saturday, August 17, 2019

The Moon remains in Pisces all day today making good connections to Saturn, Neptune and Pluto.  We can be totally tuned in to our inner voice today.  It’s a great day to engage a spiritual practice, take a class, do some meditation or yoga, and otherwise focus inward.

Sunday, August 17, 2019

The Moon moves into Aries early in the day (9:33 am PT/12:33 pm ET) and we feel more energetic and willing to get out and do something!  The Aries Moon is ruled by Mars and Mars likes action.  Go for a bike ride, hike, or do some other physical activity today.

Mars into Virgo  – August 18 – October 3, 2019.  The Leo stellium begins to break up today with Mars, the first of the inner planets’, move into Virgo. Mars in Leo gave us access to creative genius, and now in Virgo he becomes more of a workhorse, prodding us to action on our ideas.  Mars is a bit of a perfectionist in Virgo as well and pays attention to the details.  Wherever Virgo is in your natal chart is where you will have to take the “rubber to meet the road” during this cycle.

Sunflower

Week 4:  August 19-25, 2019    Adding Energy to Virgo 

Two more bodies move into Virgo this week – Venus and the Sun.  We’re working to perfect something, and it is all part of the Virgo experience.

Monday & Tuesday, August 19-20, 2019

We begin the work week with the Moon in Aries.  Today may be a day for new beginnings or building of momentum toward something.  Watch out for aggressive attitudes – either your own or someone else’s.  This is not a good day to pick a fight with anyone! Engage your personal authority and be responsible for yourself – thoughts, words and deeds!

Remember Aries is one of the signs that when the Moon moves through it can trigger our Capricorn trio, Saturn, South Node and Pluto.  There may be more to experience in the break down and regeneration of something in your life.  Be willing to work through it and engage a wider perspective.

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

The Moon moved into Taurus very early this morning after a 20 minute Void-of-course.  That puts the Moon in a trine or positive flow with both the feminine and masculine principles (Venus & Mars).  We may feel more balanced today, and able to act from a place of equilibrium.  Later in the day, the Moon will conjunct Uranus, perhaps giving us a surprise or two.  Not all surprises are negative, maybe something very nice will pop up in your world for you today!

Venus into Virgo – August 21 to September 14.  With Venus in Virgo we value the down to Earth and practical, both in expressions of love and in what we choose to buy.  Venus rules are relationships, values and money and in Virgo we want to be sure that there is a useful reason for everything we do.  Watch out for being picky and overly critical of those around you.

Mercury (in Leo) trine Jupiter (in Sagittarius) – When these two planets meet up in Fire energy there is expansion into the creative, expressive, and spiritual.  Mercury rules the mind and communication, while Jupiter rules expansion and our Spiritual nature.  This combination may bring us good news, optimism and the desire to socialize.

Friday, August 23, 2019

The Sun moves into Virgo early today adding a 3rd party to the building stellium in that sign.  The Sun in Virgo is organized, earthy and detail-oriented.  The focus turns to our work environment, the path of sharing our gifts and talents (service) and the routines we are in. We are also more concerned with health and the purity of the foods we eat and the water we drink.  Sun sign Virgo can be analytical and think critically.  We want to be careful about being overly picky, critical of others or perfectionistic.

Also today, the Moon moves into chatty Gemini.  When the Moon is in Gemini we are more quick-witted, curious and sociable.  We can also become easily scattered and lose focus with the number of ideas and thoughts we have in our heads.

The Moon in Gemini challenges the Sun (Crisis of Consciousness), Venus and Mars in Virgo.  Virgo wants the details, and Gemini prefers to leave them out in favor of flexibility.  Gemini is fickle, and Virgo is stable.  How did the two of these signs get linked by the same planet – Mercury – when they are so different in their approach to the use of the mind and communication.  That’s a great question for another day’s tale!  Just know that today you may feel torn between depth and superficiality.

Saturday, August 24, 2019  

The Moon is in Gemini all day today opposing Jupiter and squaring Neptune.  Today is likely not a great day to make big decisions, but it would be good for just having some fun!

Venus conjunct Mars – The astrological lovers meet today!  Venus and Mars together make the ideal partners for love, romance and socializing with friends.  There is also a raw sensual and sexual energy in the air today that generates magnetism – drawing couples together.  We can also find satisfaction in creative endeavors.  It’s a good time to start a project that brings both the physical and the emotional together.

Sunday, August 25, 2019    

We end the weekend with the Moon in Gemini transitioning to Cancer in the early evening.  Likely it’s been a socializing and energizing type of weekend.  Now with the Moon’s move into Cancer, we bring in an emotional element to start the next week with.

Sunflower

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

It seems this week is all about Uranus!  So expect the unexpected, be ready for surprises and stay grounded (in your body and conscious).  Mercury is added to the stellium in Virgo and we have a New Moon-Super Moon in Virgo later in the week.

Monday, 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!

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

The Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto early today and we may feel the rush of emotion or the 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!

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

The 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.

Thursday, August 29, 2019

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

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

Earlier 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.

 

 

         

Weekly Dimensional Astrology

The Week of July 8-14, 2019

While this week doesn’t include an eclipse or a planetary sign change, we still have plenty of action taking place in the heavens above – Mercury and Mars come together, the Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn, the South Node and Pluto, and the Moon beginning the week in Libra, challenges the Cancer and Capricorn planets. Okay, so it’s going to be an energetic week!

Let’s break it down:

Monday, July 8, 2019

MondayToday is a great day to express yourself creatively and with your special uniqueness as Venus, in a sextile to Uranus, stimulates our need for beauty and excitement. 

Mercury Rx and Mars also meet up today in Leo and where there is unexpressed frustration, we might see verbal battles erupt.  The best way to work through this is to recognize that your frustration is your own and isn’t meant to be “vomited” outward onto others.  We all know that everyone isn’t in the “know” like we are so it is possible to be on the receiving end of someone else’s frustration. 

The extraordinary potential of this though, is that we can finally voice to ourselves what we have dared not say!  For instance, “I’m tired of this job and I’m going to finally do what I want to do.” or “I’m going to start treating myself better and follow my heart’s desires.”  So many ways in which we can wake up now to what is “right” for us.  We will have another chance later this Summer when Mars and Mercury meet up again in Virgo. 

The Moon in Libra is also in a good relationship with Mars and Mercury, so there really is a high side to all this verbal energy – whether it is clearing the air or stating something profound.  Just make sure that you are being responsible with your words. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  2-Devoting    Accepting two opposite perspectives within a community, family or nation without getting stuck in inappropriate loyalties.  

Human Design Astrology:  The Sun moves into Gate 53-Starting Things while the Earth moves into Gate 54-Ambition.  Both of these gates are on the Root center, which is the center for Stress, Endurance, and Impulse energy.  The impulse energy for the week is about new beginnings and how they are connected to a goal, desire or ambition.   

If you really want to dig deeper, then look at the Gene Keys 53 and 54, where Superabundance & Ascension are the highest states of these two gates. 

Tuesday, July 9, 2019     

Another energetic day is on tap as the Sun opposes Saturn today (from Cancer to TuesdayCapricorn) while the Moon in Libra challenges the Sun, Saturn and Pluto.  

We are familiar with the Sun square Moon as this is our “Crisis of Action.”  Having come through the new moon window last week, we are now faced with a potential block to our new beginning.  We have to consciously choose what path to follow next. 

With the Sun opposing Saturn, we are asked to stand in our authority and live from our true authenticity.  We can also experience low energy as the weight of duty and responsibility may just feel burdensome to us right now.  Don’t worry as this soon will pass.  Maybe take a break today and so something fun or something that doesn’t require a lot of energy.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  3-Illuminating.  Today we are inspired to create new things or to think in new ways.  This is also a day to shine a light into the dark spaces.  Maybe what heaviness we feel from the Sun-Saturn opposition is really about how we are aligned to the light or not?  

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Hump DayWhile we slept, the Moon moved out of Libra and into Scorpio and the Sun moved into a trine with Neptune.  We are experiencing a bump up in the spiritual, psychic and intuitive energies today.  Don’t be surprised if you were having weird dreams, or if you feel suddenly tapped into Universal Consciousness.  Follow your inner knowing today.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  4-Choosing.  Focus on the foundations in your world today.  Build or rebuild in ways that are sustainable and strengthen.  The energy today is also good for healing, nurturing and settling differences.  

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Today could be an interesting day as Mars (planet of conflict and confrontation) squaresThankful Thursday (or challenges) Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and awakening.  Adding to that is the Moon in Scorpio, a sign ruled by both Mars and Pluto, and what you get is the potential for erratic behavior and rebelliousness.  Best to channel your energy in ways that are positive and uplifting, rather than to give into the urges of craziness and then have to face the piper tomorrow.  Exercise or physical activity is a great way to let off some steam.  Just be careful that you don’t overdo anything. 

This could also be a highly creative day.  Harness the energy to bust through any places where you have been stuck.  But watch for destructiveness vs. constructiveness. 

The potential also exists today for escalations in the world outside of us.  Expect rebellion and revolution – in both it’s negative and potentially positive expressions.  Grandstanding, narcissism, arrogance and lack of humility could also exacerbate tensions already apparent in the world around us. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Exploring.  Today is a day for surprises and unexpected things to occur that give us opportunities to change old patterns.  This is a great day for exploring, but watch for being rigid or too critical.  

Human Design Today:  Venus, planet of our relationships, values and finances moves into the Gate 39-Provocation.  Provocation serves a purpose – to wake us up!  Unfortunately we sometimes perceive these energies as an assault or affront to our personal lives.  Provocation is meant to move us from a “stuck” position to one of Freedom, as evidenced in the opposing Gate 55- which resonates to Freedom in the Gift and the Siddhic states. 

Friday, July 12, 2019 

FridayWe move into the end of the week with the Moon moving into Sagittarius, where adventure, exploration and seeking knowledge is important to us.  Today there is smooth energy between the Moon and Mercury and Mars.  Today comes as a relief to some of the more chaotic days earlier in the week.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  6-Healing.  Today is a great day for adventure and movement on all levels.  Engage in healing efforts – maybe traveling to the beach or other outdoor area to refresh yourself.  Watch for accepting too many responsibilities OR avoiding responsibilities.

The Moon in Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter today making it a feel great kind of day!  AboutSaturday meme the only thing we have to be aware of is not overdoing anything.  Too much of anything is not a good thing, so keep everything proportional and sustainable.  The Moon is also square Neptune today triggering some “fogginess” in our thinking and calculating.  Consequently, this is not the best day to make big decisions.  So instead, have fun, play and save big decisions for another day!  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  7-Seeing.  While today is not a good day to make decisions, our creative energies are working well!  New ideas abound today.  Just don’t try to take action on all of your ideas!  

Human Design Today:  The Sun moves into the Gate 62- Planning and the Earth into Gate 61-The Mystery.  The week ahead is one to be greeted with a Spirit of awe and wonder rather than anxiety and obsession with planning and details.  Enjoy the ride!

Sunday, July 14, 2019 

The Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn today creating the potential for power struggles born of jealousy and manipulation in yourself or in others.  Recognize these shadow energies within yourself before taking action in ways that are harmful.  Use the Sun’s fire energy to transmute the shadow and leave you empowered.  Not everyone in the outer world is so inclined to use these energies for the good however, so we may see expressions of the negative.  Instead of empowerment, we may see ways in which disempowerment and dominance play out. 

Interestingly this is a prelude to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday where the Moon will be in conjunction to Pluto.  Emotions will be high, and reactive tendencies hold sway rather than common sense.  Try to stay above the fray and not get too serious about world events. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Intuiting.  Connecting, communication and abundance are ours.  All we have to do is to tap into and recognize when it is right in front of us.  Reacting to the outer world is one of the shadows of the day.

Human Design today:  Mars moves into the Gate 33-Storyteller.  While Mars represents action and forward movement in Astrology, in Human Design it more represents our maturing process.  Maturing is related to our remembering the truth of who we are in this incarnation.  According to Richard Rudd in the Gene Keys, “There is no situation on Earth that cannot be used as a means to raise your frequency and open your heart to your inner Divinity.”  We are being moved to tell a new story, and it’s one of our remembering our truth and creating continued disinformation.  

So, while this isn’t necessarily a difficult week, there are some difficult transits, likely designed to prepare us for next week’s Lunar Eclipse.  Let go of what doesn’t serve you – the stories, the old emotions, grudges etc., and next week will be easy breezy!  

Blessings,

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.

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

 

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, March 29, 2019

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

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.
