Moon in Gemini – Be Sociable & Conversational

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

What’s Up in the Stars Today?

Astrology & Human Design for the Week Ahead

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I know I did – and I got a lot accomplished!

This is week two of the quieter energies for the month of May – the calm before the storm, if you will.  But, this week does have some challenges ahead, as well as some wonderful opportunities!  Yes!

We start the week with the Moon in Aquarius giving most of us a unique and off-key viewpoint.  I thought it was funny this morning when some FB posts that I was seeing were all about turning things upside down to get a different perspective – that is so Moon in Aquarius 🙂  The rest of the week, Luna travels through Pisces and then into Aries, which we’ll talk about more as the week moves on.

Watch your words today and for the next couple of days as Mercury has come to an exact square (90 degree, challenging aspect) with Pluto.  Words can empower or slice and dice, and they may be misinterpreted – especially on social media where it is difficult to gauge the tone and emotion behind the words.  Be wise then about what you say, when you say it, and maybe realize that you can be misunderstood.  Have compassion for your fellow humans as well, they may not tune in to astrological wisdom and have no clue about what is happening 🙂

I’ll let you enjoy the rest of the week’s information in the video!

Blessings,

Janet

A Deliberate Journey

If you are like most of us, you have questioned what it is you have come to Earth to do – or maybe even specifically wanted to know what your Soul’s path is.  It is a great question, but seemingly difficult to answer for a lot of us.
   
What if I told you that your soul’s path on Earth is a deliberate journey with growth & evolution as its spiritual purpose, and that you can access what that is for you ? 

If you are like most of us, you have questioned what it is you have come to Earth to do – or maybe even specifically wanted to know what your Soul’s path is.  It is a great question, but seemingly difficult to answer for a lot of us.

What if I told you that your soul’s path on Earth is a deliberate journey with growth & evolution as its spiritual purpose, and that you can access what that is for you ?

The Soul’s journey is not always easy nor is it a direct pathway.  It is rooted in contrast and struggle with challenges that are designed to help you grow and evolve.  In other words, conflict is a catalyst for each of us along our pathway to soul fulfillment.

We can see your Soul’s purpose and journey in Human Design as each Type has a specific divine road.  Below are the 5 Types and the Spiritual Purpose & Challenge for each one:

If you do not know what your Type is, you can go to www.living-astrology and order your Free Human Design Chart or use the contact form below to get that information to me.

Manifestors
Spiritual Purpose: Being an Initiator and Being in YOUR Power
Spiritual Challenges: Maintaining connection to Superconsciousness (or your spiritual connection); not going underground with your power; trusting your connection to spirit and trusting your inner voice; courage to follow your inner voice; and informing, but not compromising

Generators/Manifesting Generators –
Spiritual Purpose: Be in the BODY and Be HERE – Manifest Spirit into Action in the physical
Spiritual Challenges:

  • “Let Go and Let God!” (big surprise that one!);
  • Having “back-up plans” for God;
  • Bring Light forth into form, but allow the road to be revealed step by step

Projectors –
Spiritual Purpose: Guide, lead, direct others and Co-creation with God
Spiritual Challenges:

  • Trusting that you will be fully supported in doing what you love;
  • Radical self-love;
  • Trusting that the invitation will show up;
  • Being diligent with their mindset

Reflectors –
Spiritual Purpose: Reflect to Humanity the current state of consciousness on the planet and Integrating expression of what is going on around them and channel that into action
Spiritual Challenges:

  • Experiencing the whole lunar cycle before making big decisions;
  • Serving as the mirror to humanity on where they have stepped out of LOVE;
  • Living in a world with exquisite sensitivity to everything around you (fear, love, anger, joy, disappointment).

It’s important to know that everyone has a purpose for being here, and a soul’s journey to complete.  Accepting and recognizing your inherent magnificence i.e. surrendering to the soul’s knowing, is the pathway forward to Enlightenment!

If you would like to know more about your own personal mystical journey, it begins with a Human Design reading OR if you have already had a Human Design reading, then you can have a Mystical Journey reading.

Third Eye, Blind?

As Human Beings, we have access to 3 ways of knowing – Logic, Knowingness & Intuition. Logic is the way that we have been conditioned to know something i.e. if you can prove it, it must be so. We are very familiar with this kind of thinking as it is the Scientific Method. We have a question, which we then form a hypothesis, then set out to prove it is true or it is false. This is a valid way of knowing something, but it is not the only way!

I saw a meme on FB this morning about the band, Third Eye Blind; only it was written Third Eye, Blind. That got me to thinking about what that phrase meant, which then got me to thinking about Human Design….of course 🙂
 
As Human Beings, we have access to 3 ways of knowing – Logic, Knowingness & Intuition. Logic is the way that we have been conditioned to know something i.e. if you can prove it, it must be so. We are very familiar with this kind of thinking as it is the Scientific Method. We have a question, which we then form a hypothesis, then set out to prove it is true or it is false. This is a valid way of knowing something, but it is not the only way!
 
Logic in Human Design, btw, is all about the recognition of patterns and the ability to predict what will happen based on that pattern. It is a+ b = c  kind of thinking. Every morning I see that the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West – a pattern is established, and so it is a known thing. (God help us if the Sun started setting in the East and rising in the West – I giggle thinking about how that would go over in the world 🙂 ) … but I digress
 
What about the ways of “knowing” that our ancestors used, before the scientific revolution? Knowingness or instinct/intuition… Are they any less valid? Or … did our Western way or our more Modern life create a situation of our becoming, “Third Eye Blind?”
 
Well, let’s take a look at the other two ways we have of tapping into information – and, we all have these three ways of knowing available to us…but based on your Human Design you may be predisposed to rely more heavily on one.
 
Knowingness in Human Design is another way we have of tapping into the information super highway. It is pure and simple, “I don’t know how I know what I know, but I just know.” Have you ever experienced this? This is what I like to call Body Wisdom as it has it roots in the physical being, and it is quite possible that it is wisdom carried into this lifetime from your DNA and/or through past life recall. It is fascinating!
 
I have experienced this kind of knowing as I suddenly (after 911 and around my mid-life crisis point at age 41) realized that I knew astrology. I cannot explain to you with any “logic” how this knowledge showed up in my life – it was simply, I don’t know how I know what I know, but I KNOW. Imagine me trying to explain that to family 🙂 “Oh, btw family, I’m now going to stop being an Optician and become an Astrologer.” 🙂 Some members understood, and others thought I had lost my mind!
 
My point is this – knowingness is ancient, unverifiable, yet definitely something we all have access to, as it is in our Human Design!
 
The third way of knowing is Intuition / Instinct. Some of you may wonder what the difference is between Knowingness & Intuition. There is definitely a difference. Intuition is powerful, instinctive and comes in the moment. It is primal, protective, and creates an action point for us to respond to. Knowingness is a little less “qualifiable” and as such is very Neptunian (can’t pin down a source).
 
In Human Design, however, intuition comes from the Spleen, which is a center for Time, Intuition and Survival. Intuition speaks to you loudly in the moment, and if you choose to listen you find yourself in the right place at the right time with the right people. But, if you don’t listen and get into your mind and try to talk yourself out of what your intuition is telling you, just the opposite can happen. You miss out on the synchronistic meeting with someone, you get lost, or find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.
 
So, don’t be Third Eye Blind! Understand that you as a Human Being are tuned in to the world in more ways than just Logic! Sometimes you have to go with your gut, or just affirm that what you know is Truth!

LIVE by Human Design – September Energy Report

I hope you’re all ready for a rockin’ and rollin’ September as there is so much going on this month that it feels overwhelming to write about it!

Let’s get started …

LIVE by Human Design & Living Astrology

September Energy Report

 

I hope you’re all ready for a rockin’ and rollin’ September as there is so much going on this month that it feels overwhelming to write about it!

Let’s get the big things out of the way first.  We enter into September with Mercury having moved retrograde in Virgo on August 30 and a Solar Eclipse in Virgo on September 1. The Sun-Moon combo are at 9 Virgo, while Mercury moved Rx at 29 Virgo.  Mediating both ends of the sign and making this an opportunity for growth is Jupiter at 28 Virgo.  It’s almost as if we have bookends!  The net effect of this is to make sure we have learned and continue to develop our Virgo lessons surrounding wholeness, health, practical forward action and connectedness! 

From a Human Design perspective, the Sun/Moon will be at Gate 40-Lonliness during the eclipse with Earth at Gate 37-Friendship and Jupiter/Mercury/Venus will be at Gate 46 – Love of the Body.  These energies together remind us to create or join community by getting ourselves out into the world to share our gifts and talents.  Even the Hermits out there will appreciate the forming of bonds that boost themselves and others in healthy ways. 

The second event for September (and maybe the biggest!) is the Lunar Eclipse on September 16.  I’ve learned 3 major types of Astrology and all three of them show a very energetic day for the 16th!!

Western Astrology – the Lunar eclipse occurs at 24 Pisces/Virgo (Sun in Virgo, Moon in Pisces) forming a T-Square with Mars at the point.  This adds up to high energy, dynamic change and an element of volatility.

Human Design – the Sun at 6 – Friction and the Moon/Earth at Gate 36-Crisis, pretty much sums up the potential energy of conflict during this time.  Anytime that Gate 6 shows up we have Impact, jarring our senses and making us take notice.  Crisis can be born out of boredom and restlessness causing us to do things we wouldn’t normally do.

Mayan Astrology – the Mayan system has built in “Burner Days” that they used as a way to release tension and the build-up of strain within the society.  On the Burner Days there would be activities that brought the tribe together and released the pent up pressure.  (The example of Super Bowl in our society comes to mind…)  Because we have no organized way in today’s society to relieve the stresses, big events tend to happen that serve to bring us together – almost as if on an unconscious level we know that we must open the relief valve, but nothing is available on the conscious level for us to do it. 

So it appears that all three systems of Astrology point to the potential for September 16 (or there about) to be a potentially impactful experience for us.  This is not about FEAR, but being AWARE of your surroundings, the choices you are making in any given moment, and realizing that there will be others who are not as conscious as you and they may be on an edge.  Seek PEACE, use COMPASSION, create from LOVE and we can minimize the negative impacts of this energy. 

The rest of the month seems tame by comparison – as we move beyond the Lunar Eclipse we find ourselves once again in the energy of Sun at Gate 46 – Love of the Body and Earth at Gate 25 – Love of Spirit.  Gate 25 energy is loving, sweet and healing! We will so need it! 

Venus will be sitting at Gate 50 encouraging us to nurture both ourselves and others – in a balanced way!

The last week of September we find ourselves in the energy of Opinions and Criticism – “Judge not, lest you be judged” is a great mantra for us during this week.  Worse yet are the harsh criticisms you may put upon yourself.  Remember kind words toward self and others can go a long way. 

Look for the weekly LIVE by Human Design updates for more specifics of each week.    

Keynotes for September: 

  • Mindset – take care of what you are thinking and remember not to identify with your thoughts! DO NOT make any decisions from your head.  If you need to know what your Authority is (your decision-making tool) go to my website at living-astrology and request your FREE Human Design chart!
  • Take care of yourself, especially if you are someone who tends to over nurture others and leave yourself out!  Compassion, love and nurturing are two-way streets!
  • Get into your body!!! Love your body as it is the vehicle for your Spirit… how you think about your body is as important as what you do for your body
  • Mercury Rx is in the Gate 47 (Mindset)/Gate 64 (Confusion) for most of the month so it is imperative that you KNOW yourself, get out of your head, and wait for MAGIC to happen.

Are You Experiencing One of These Emotions?

In Human Design Astrology, each of us has a Type & Strategy that forms the framework for living from our authentic self. It is when we are not true to ourselves that we experience the negative emotions like Frustration, Anger, Disappointment or Bitterness.

 

 

Hi There!

 If your answer is yes, then you might be experiencing the effects of not living from your authentic self!

In Human Design Astrology, each of us has a Type & Strategy that forms the framework for living from our authentic self.  It is when we are not true to ourselves that we experience the negative emotions listed above.

If you have received your Human Design Chart, then you have probably seen the words, “conditioning theme” or “Life Theme” with one of these feelings.  I am sure when you looked at that word something stirred within you – either a recognition of how frustration, anger, disappointment or bitterness plays out in your life or the niggling fear that somehow this word/feeling permeates your life and you don’t know what to do about it.

The resolution is simple … live your life according to your Type & Strategy!

If you do not know what your Type/Strategy is or if these words are completely new to you, then the first thing you need to do is get a copy of your Human Design Chart.  You can get your free copy by going to my website at www.living-astrology/human-design-chart.html.  Just fill out the little form and I will send you a copy of your chart.

There are 5 Types in Human Design – Manifestors, Generators, Manifesting Generators, Projectors and Reflectors.  Each Type has its own specific Strategy and Conditioning Theme that develops when you’re not living authentically.

Manifestors

Conditioning Theme:  Anger

Strategy:  Inform Before You Act

A Manifestor’s Strategy is to learn to inform people of their actions, before they actually take action.  This is not easy for Manifestor’s to do.  A Manifestor might have learned early on that if they tell people what they are going to do they encounter resistance or control by others. Yet, the simple act of informing can save them a whole host of issues from occurring later on.

It is when they are not informing that people attempt to resist their ideas/actions and put blocks in their way.  This is what creates Anger for the Manifestor.  Once they master this Strategy, life becomes far less filled with anger!

Generators

Conditioning Theme:  Frustration

Strategy:  Respond to what shows up in your outer world

Frustration is the result of a Generator who has gotten involved in tasks that are not in alignment with their true purpose or passion; and frustration is also present when Generators initiate rather than respond to the outer world.

Generators also go through periods of time of growth, followed by periods of rest – kind of like a stairway.  When they feel they are on the plateau (the rest part of the stairway) too long, frustration can also develop.  Generators can be tempted to do things that are not in alignment with the Type during this time.  However, this kind of frustration is the Generator’s cue that the energy is about to shift.  Only make changes in your life when you are responding to what is showing up in your outer world.

Manifesting Generators

Conditioning Theme:  Anger & Frustration

Strategy:  Visualize, Inform, Respond

Manifesting Generators are a sort of hybrid between the Manifestor and the Generator.  Therefore, their Strategy contains components from both Types.  Like the Generator, they are meant to respond to what shows up in their outer world, and like a Manifestor, they must inform others before they take action.  A Manifesting Generator can engage in envisioning their goal while they are waiting for something in the outer world to respond to.

Anger for a Manifesting Generator is directly related to not informing others of their plans/actions before acting upon them.  Others respond to the Manifesting Generator by putting up resistance or blocks to stop them when they haven’t informed the people effected by their decisions.  Frustration develops in the same way for Manifesting Generators as Generators.

Projectors 

Conditioning Theme:  Bitterness

Strategy:  Wait for the Invitation

When Projector’s enter into things without an invitation, they can become bitter because no one recognizes their contribution.  Life becomes a struggle for them, and then they feel exhausted and lethargic.  Health concerns, for example auto-immune diseases, can creep in and zap the remaining energy of Projector’s if they continue to expend their energy without waiting for the invitation.

The Projector who waits for the invitation is successful and recognized by the people who will value his/her wisdom and guidance!

Reflector   

Conditioning Theme:  Disappointment

Strategy:  Wait for 28 days (a full cycle of the Moon)

The Reflector has a strong connection with the Moon and therefore the lunar cycle.  It takes the Moon 28 days to move through all 64 Gates of the Human Design chart, and because the Gates are the only definition in a Reflector’s chart, it is important that they wait the full 28 days to get clarity before making decisions.

As you can imagine, this can be a difficult proposition in a world such as ours where things move so fast.  However, if a Reflector does not adhere to the 28 days of waiting, they are prone to disappointment as they may regret the decisions they made.    During the 28 days of waiting, the Reflector is meant to talk to their networks of people about their decision in order to gain clarity.
