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.

Weekly Astrology Aug 19-25, 2019

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.  While the planets were piled up in Leo we were in very creative energy.  That creative energy must now find an outlet into the “real” world, and Virgo is just the sign to help us make that happen.  Get ready to get to work!

August 19-25, 2019    More Planets Move Into 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.  While the planets were piled up in Leo we were in very creative energy.  That creative energy must now find an outlet into the “real” world, and Virgo is just the sign to help us make that happen.  Get ready to get to work!

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.

Monday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Choosing

Universal Number 5 is all about change, unexpected opportunities and surprises.  Be ready for anything today.

Choosing or Eb (in Mayan Calendar) – presents with opportunities for collective healing and nurturing.  There is potential today to settle differences.

Tuesday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  6-Exploring

The Universal Number 6 is about the flow of abundance throughout the Universe.  This is a good time for travel and for movement on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Exploring (Ben in Mayan Calendar) Earth energy is also good for travel but also harmonizing opposing viewpoints.  Watch out for being overly rigid or hyper-critical today.

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.

Wednesday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  7-Healing

Seven Universal energy is Merging.  This brings a day of opportunity for merging our consciousness with that of other people or other worlds.  The Healing Earth energy (Ix in the Mayan Calendar) gives us the courage to heal imbalances in our lives.  Avoid accepting too many responsibilities or avoiding responsibility today.

Sunflower

Thursday, August 22, 2019

Today is a quiet day astrologically.  The Moon in Taurus is in an easy flow of energy with Saturn, Neptune and Pluto.  Emotions and Mind may struggle a bit throughout the day.  We may be overly emotional in the way we speak to one another, or our thoughts may be of an emotional nature.  This would be a good time to remember not to be impulsive with what you say or do.

Thursday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8- Seeing

The Universal number 8 is Connecting energy.  It brings accelerated communication and abundance on all levels.  The Earth energy of Seeing (Men in Mayan) brings new ideas and the ability for us to see the details.  Be wary of making rash decisions or taking impulsive actions.

Sunflower

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 being too much of a perfectionist.

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.

Friday – Pleiadian Earth Energy:  9-Intuiting

9 Universal energy harmonizes and allows for more peaceful energy in our lives.  The Earth Energy (Cib in Mayan) of Intuiting gives us the ability to recognize what is real and what isn’t and to listen more deeply to our inner knowing.

Weekend

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.

Saturday’s Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Evolving

The Universal energy of 10 is Manifesting energy.  This is a 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.  The Earth Energy of Evolving (Caban in Mayan) shows us new possibilities as our boundaries change.  Don’t be disappointed if plans change or fall apart today.  All is well and will be well.

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.

Sunday’s Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  11-Self-Regulating

The Universal energy of 11 is Illuminating.  More light is brought in to help us see more clearly.  The Earth energy of Self-Regulating (Etz’Nab in Mayan) helps us to let go of what is no longer working.  This may include making hard choices about what we move forward with.  Rise above the noise and confusion of the mind in favor of being in your heart center.

I hope everyone has a pleasant week!  More next week when Mercury joins the party of planets in Virgo!  Until then …

Love,

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,

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.  

Saturday, July 13, 2019

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,

Mars into Leo – Prepare to Live Your Passions

Chaotic, Yet Powerful Week Ahead

Are you ready for a crazy sort of week?  It’s not crazy in a bad way, but more of crazy in an empowering kind of way. 

Astrology for the Week of May 13-19, 2019

Are you ready for a crazy sort of week?  It’s not crazy in a bad way, but more of crazy in an empowering kind of way.  Mercury and Venus are both in focus this week.  Mercury connects up with Neptune, Saturn and Pluto, while Venus changes signs and connects up to Mars and Uranus.  Mars moves out of Gemini and into Cancer, shaping how we will take action over the next several weeks.  As well, the Sun connects with Pluto to push an agenda of transformation for the week ahead.  Saturday brings us the Full Moon in Scorpio which is filled with intensity and passion!  With this much movement in the sky above us, we can surely expect some chaos!  Let’s break it down …

Monday, May 13, 2019

Monday memeWe start the week with the Moon in practical, detail-oriented and grounded Virgo.  We are primed to get things done!  One of our keywords for the week is Simplify!  What can you do to reduce the complexity of your life?

The Moon plays nice with Mercury and Saturn today as well.  Our mind’s and communications are streamlined and succinct, and Saturn’s connections aids in the overall “clean it up” atmosphere of the day.  While you’re busy working today, the Moon’s opposition to Neptune may cause instant epiphanies or aha’s that intuitively guide you to answers you have been seeking!  Slight caution:  Moon and Jupiter square one another today, so beware of doing too much!  ( too much work, shopping, spending money, eating, drinking etc.)

Sun (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn)

Reduce, reuse, recycle and living within our means are all themes that could be developing in your world this week.  Pluto in Capricorn has already created space for our transformation and the Sun in Taurus – known for its Master Builder and Master Manifesting energy – are working together to empower your next steps, especially when you are staying within acceptable boundaries.  Don’t be afraid to rebuild or grow, just do it with a plan.  Eliminate what is not necessary and see yourself move on lighter and more energized.  We will have another opportunity for this level of “clean up” in our lives again in September, but anything you drag your heels on now, may become an albatross around your neck by then.  So go with your instincts and don’t be afraid to pare down your life.

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

The Moon shifts out of Virgo and into Libra, and Venus and Mars both take center stageTuesday for the next couple of days.  The Moon in Libra puts emphasis on the emotional connections in our relationships.  Venus, the ruler of Libra, is sitting at the 29th (karmic) degree of Aries, so there may be some unresolved issues in our relationships that flare up now.  Take heart though, this is a short lived transit, and Venus’ relationship to Mars today will help us sort through all kinds of issues with ease (but not necessarily without conflict or confrontation).

The Moon trines Pluto and the Sun today while squaring Mars.  There is emotional empowerment here, but also the possibility of ego clashes with those closest to you.  The best route today is to take the high road.  If someone is triggered by your actions or words, then don’t react.  Breathe, and then do what you can to change the frequency.  If you are the one that gets triggered today, then breathe before you react.  Become the observer and become response-able!  Likely there is something valuable for you to learn in the experience.

Venus (Aries) sextile Mars (Gemini)

Sextiles are planetary relationships that bring out the best characteristics of both planets who then share their wisdom with one another.  With Venus and Mars, we are balancing and harmonizing the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves.  The masculine energy protects and takes action, while the feminine receives and nurtures.  It takes a balance of both energies to live in harmony.  Just look at the outer world and you can see the effect of not having masculine and feminine in balance!

Venus sextile Mars also helps us build new and exciting relationships, both love interests and friendships.  We are more open to socializing and exploring connections to a wide range of people.  While we are making new friends and building new relationships, watch out for your old friends as well.  They may feel left out or replaced – their issue to be sure, but, do what you can to embrace both the new and the old.

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Hump DayVenus moves into Taurus, Mars moves into Cancer and Mercury and Neptune play mind games with another today.  You may experience a shift in your relationships and finances, discover new ways of taking action and find that your mind is picking up signals from your intuition as if by magic!  All in all, not a bad day, just active.

Venus in Taurus

Venus is in Taurus now until June 8, and our focus is on finances, values and relationships.  Venus in Taurus is sensual and delights in the simple pleasures of life.  It’s a great time for massage, getting your hair done and pampering yourself and others.  Venus in Taurus prefers to spend her money on practical yet beautiful things.  Do you have plans to beautify or remodel your home?  Timing is perfect for just that!  Venus in Taurus also strengthens our relationships with others, inspiring trustworthiness and loyalty.

Mars in Cancer

Mars is in Cancer from today until July 1, and the pace of action slows down and narrows in focus.  Cancer is emotional, so a lot of what we do over the next few weeks is dependent upon our moods.  Trying to force yourself to do something while not in the mood, will make for frustration and anger.  Try to pace yourself and go with the flow for awhile.  People may be more defensive than usual as well, so be prepared to back off if need be.  You, too, may be more defensive and this time will offer you the opportunity to look deep within and see what your real fear is all about.  What are you defending and why?

Mercury (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces)

Clear thinking is not a strong point with us today.  We are rather more sensitive to the unseen realm, with increased awareness and intuition, but that doesn’t always make for easy decision-making for us.  Our imaginations are stimulated today opening up the possibility for creative work and possibly solving issues that have plagued us in new ways.  We feel more like escaping the world today, rather than focusing on the tasks at hand.  If you can give yourself the day off, that is a great idea.  If not, then understand that you are likely not going to get everything done that you think you need to do.  Meditation, yoga, and spiritual studies are all favored today.

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Where yesterday’s mind was clouded and unclear, today our minds are more focusedHappy-Thursday-022 and ready to work as Mercury flows with Saturn.  Late in the day, the Moon moves out of Libra and into Scorpio after a 12 hour Void of Course (when the Moon isn’t making any new contacts to any planets or points in our charts).  Consequently, most of the day we are likely not able to start new projects or move any projects ahead in any appreciable way.  Instead, take the time to finish up anything that is left hanging, clear off your desk, or re-evaluate your goals and where you are in relation to achieving them.

Mercury (Taurus) trine Saturn (Capricorn)

When Mercury and Saturn work together we are focused and able to concentrate on the tasks at hand.  You may feel more reserved today as you may want to be left alone with your thoughts.  We can be more thorough and methodical with Mercury and Saturn aligning like this, which gives us access to a keen eye to detail.  Thinking through plans and goals and then reworking them if necessary, is definitely a good activity for today.

Friday, May 17, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon spends the day in Scorpio making only one new contact and that is a trine to Neptune.  That means today we are likely to be highly emotional and intuitive, maybe even picking up on people’s hidden agendas.  I think of these connections as almost prophetic, as we so easily pick up on what is unsaid and unseen.  Watch out for possible over-emotional responses from others, especially if passions are aroused.

Mercury (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn) 

Processing emotions, digging deeply into our subconscious minds and transformational interactions are all possibilities today.  Mercury is superficial and Pluto goes deep so we find ourselves in interesting territory.  You can become obsessed with an idea or thought that eventually changes you in some way.  There is also the possibility that someone in your world or whom you meet today can be the force for change in your life.  Readings, divination, therapy appointments and coaching can be very fruitful today!

Weekend

The Moon spends the day in Scorpio, but transitions into Sagittarius this evening.  We still have some powerful undercurrents moving through the day giving us access to the deeper parts of our psyches.  This energy culminates with the Full Moon in Scorpio at 2:12 pm PT /5:12 pm ET/ 9:12 pm UT.

Venus (Taurus) conjunct Uranus (Taurus)

Before the Full Moon today, Venus and Uranus join forces to push us into new experiences and new territory.  We want to try new things and have experiences that we haven’t had before now.  Create new sensations and change up the pace and you will find that this can be an extraordinary day!  Just be careful not to engage in risky behavior however … fun, new, exciting YES, but over-the-top, danger NO!

Full Moon at 28 Scorpio / Taurus 

The full Moon is a time for releasing, completing and revealing something.

Release – being stuck

Complete – your plans for financial abundance

Reveal – how your contribution in alignment with your values will take you to new heights in your life

With Venus (Taurus) conjunct Uranus (Taurus) at this full Moon, expect the unexpected and surprises of all kinds.  Tend to the conservative though, for the reasons I stated above.  Too much risk can destabilize our lives right now.  Take cautious risks, but don’t risk anything that is precious to you.

The full Moon also sextiles Saturn and Pluto – here is where we can tap into some of the more conservative and focused energies.  We can access endurance and stamina here to stay the course until we reach our goals.

Sunday, May 19, 2019

The Moon is in Sagittarius today, but there are no major aspects occurring – thankfully!  We have had quite the week and today’s lack of contacts allows us to recoup our energy, focus on play and fun, and prepare for what comes next.  Take a hike in the great outdoors today, ride your bike, go somewhere new, but most of all … Enjoy yourself!

Many blessings for the Week Ahead,

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

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
