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

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,

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

Saturday, May 18, 2019

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

 

Weekly Astrology Forecast February 18-24

Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast

February 18-24, 2019

 

While we have some interesting astrological transits happening this week, it won’t be nearly as crazy-making as last week was.  This week features Chiron’s move into Aries, the Sun’s move into Pisces, and the Virgo/Pisces Full Moon/Super Moon.

Our featured planet of the week is Mercury, who takes on Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto as he is slowing down to his upcoming retrograde station.  In fact, he enters the shadow of his next retrograde on Tuesday, February 19. You will want to pay attention to the messages being delivered to you via Mercury’s connections this week, because you will be revisiting them later in March.  In the body of this post, I have used red lettering on the important Mercury transits.

Chiron, the wounded healer makes a move this week into the sign of Aries where he resides until 2026.  In Aries we will be facing our wounds around feelings of unworthiness and undeservedness, self-denial, not being wanted and much more.  In essence the next several years will be about our search for Self & Identity.

On Monday afternoon, the Sun moves into the sign of Pisces followed the next day by the Virgo-Pisces Full Moon which is also a Super Moon.  This full moon is the closest to Earth for 2019 and should be a magnificent sight if you have clear enough skies to see it.

Let’s break down the highlights of the week ahead:

monday (3)

Monday, February 18, 2019

Busy astrological day today as Venus conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn, Mercury conjuncts Neptune, Chiron moves into Aries, and the Sun moves into Pisces.  The Moon spends the day in fun-loving and playful Leo – I just love it when the week starts off with the Moon in Leo!

Venus conjunct Saturn:  Classic sensibility and simplicity and clean resourcefulness is favored today, so take care not to over-complicate things.  In business, coming straight to the point and being transparent and in integrity wins out over subterfuge.

Sun into Pisces:    Happy Birthday Pisceans!  This is the month for growing our awareness and consciousness, as well our creative imaginations!  Intuition and gut instinct is stronger as well during the this transit.  Work this month on having a compassionate heart and seeing the best in everyone around you.

Chiron into Aries:  Chiron briefly entered Aries from April 17, 2018 to September 25, 2018, and then retrograded backward into Pisces.  He will spend the next 7 years in the sign of the ram teaching many things about Self, Ego, Independence vs. Dependence, and how to let go of Playing Small.  I’ll have a more in depth article on Chiron in Aries later this week.

Mercury conjunct Neptune:  A mist upon the mind makes ordinary clarity difficult. If you can envision it, you can express it, so keep a journal by your bedside. Don’t expect things to make sense right away, but in retrospect it will shine like a firefly in the dark.  In other words, If you can dream it, you can eventually make it reality!

tuesday

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Full Moon-Super Moon at 0°42″ Virgo/Pisces:  A Super Moon occurs when the Moon comes within 90% of the closest approach it ever makes to the Earth.  This month’s Super Moon happens to be the most powerful and closest Full Moon for 2019.  The full moon is also a time of releasing, revealing and completing.  What must you let go of in order to move forward? or What revelations will you have about what comes next on your journey?

Across the axis of Virgo/Pisces we are being asked to become WHOLE and to reconnect the pieces of ourselves that we sometimes do not want to see.  For example, when you face a break up with someone, you might feel as if you lost a piece of your heart or soul.  The trick is to see the break up as objectively as possible, and then to love all parts of yourself that were involved.

This is also a highly intuitive and imaginative Moon – remember anything we want to create must first be imagined (in Pisces where the Sun is) and then brought into reality by Virgo (where the Moon is).  Just as the Sun & Moon are locked in a continuing cycle, so too are we.  Honoring our birthright of abundance through Spirit, we come to realize that we are always on the path of creation and bringing things into reality.  What are you imagining and creating?

Mercury sextile Saturn:  Today the planet Mercury moves into the shadow area of his next retrograde cycle.  Things begin to get wonky and a bit unpredictable.  Tuning into the contacts that Mercury makes today gives us some insight into how the retrograde time may play out.  Remember Mercury rules the Mind & Communication, while Saturn rules Form, Structure & Due Diligence.  This combination seems to be telling us that there is benefit when we slow down the mind enough to be able to ensure that our foundations are solid.  We may even discover that we have missed a step or two and can go back to make changes before we launch something.  Mercury’s shadow period reminds us that we may be pushing too far too fast.

wednesday

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Today the Moon in Virgo is making many different connections.  Most importantly are the trines (120° angles) that she is making to Venus, Saturn and then Pluto in Capricorn.  Virgo and Capricorn are Earth signs that favor the practical application of our resources – time, energy, money, etc.

Moon trine Venus – Know what you want and take the steps to get it!  No dawdling, no fussing, just a straight-line to procurement!

Moon trine Saturn –  There’s a certain stability in the general atmosphere that makes it safe to say what you feel, but not too much. Conservation of emotion might be the phrase. It’s a time to be mutually reassuring, rather than wildly supportive; projects launched will be stable, though, perhaps not very showy.

Moon trine Pluto – A sure confidence that all will be well, whatever happens, fills the air, and faith in yourself and others is exactly what will make that come true. A great day for starting things that require sustained confidence and follow-through.

Blessedly there are no major configurations in the sky today!  The Moon moves early in the morning into the sign of Libra, and with no planetary irritations we can find balance & harmony.  Yay!  Enjoy it as tomorrow is definitely more challenging!

Friday, February 22, 2019

Well today we have several things going on!  Mercury is making another important contact, this time with Jupiter, and Venus is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.  On top of that, the Moon in Libra is squaring (think challenging) Saturn, Venus & Pluto.  My calendar shows this as a Red number day!

Moon in Libra 

The Moon in Libra is conciliatory, cooperative and seeks balance and harmony.  Then she hits up the three planets in Capricorn:

Moon square Saturn:  No matter how you slice it, this spells “challenge” today.  We may be trying to get somewhere but the foot is on the brake and the gas pedal at the same time. People may be a little out of sorts and feeling irritable so take it easy, give people lots of leeway, and tomorrow is a better day.  It’s Friday anyways, so lighten up!

Moon square Venus:   Today is a day of conflicting desires and goals which act to slow down our forward progress – and you guessed it, frustration ensues!  Remember that this too shall pass and energy will restore itself soon.  AND it’s Friday anyways, so lighten up!!

Moon square Pluto:  What’s that saying??? You can’t beat a dead horse?  Literally, back off and don’t waste your efforts today because the energy just isn’t budging much.  Find the places where you can take action, and let the others go.  AND, it’s Friday anyways, so lighten up!

Mercury square Jupiter  – We have been on a wonderful, optimistic roll with Jupiter in Sagittarius, but Mercury squaring Jupiter may add some unexpected blocks on your path.  Since Mercury is in the shadow of its next retrograde, there can be little problems that pop up, seemingly out of nowhere, that slow you down.  Not to worry, just take your time in moving through anything – AND … this is a better day to re-evaluate, re-work, re-think than it is to be starting something new.  

Venus conjunct Pluto –  Today might be characterized by overwhelming passions, power struggles and over-the-top behaviors.  Venus in Capricorn is all business and she wants to get things done, and then she bumps into the Lord of the Underworld who would like nothing more than to show Venus the error of her ways. In our personal relationships, there may be powerful undercurrents that we need to work through – Desire, Anger, Vulnerability and more.  Breathe – and move through today as lightly as possible without reaction – and breathe again!

Saturday, February 23, 2019 

Today’s Moon moves out of Libra and into Scorpio early in the morning.  Before leaving the sign of Libra, the Moon will oppose Uranus at the karmic 29° of Aries and opposes Mars in early Taurus.  We may have a short burst of anger & irritation, but take care not to project that out onto the people in your lives.  This too shall pass!

Mercury sextile Pluto – Tuning in to the Force can be easier than you think — you might be doing it right now. We are sensing the “morphogenetic fields” where the stream of information and consciousness emanates from.  When you work in sure knowledge, it works through you. Thus, what you take for granted is your very support structure. Foundations laid now will have that subtle support that protects without any armor at all.

Sunday, February 24, 2019

The Moon in Scorpio flows nicely with Universal energies today.   She trines Neptune and sextiles both Saturn and Pluto.  Expect your intuition to be heightened, and your ability to get things done expanded.  Not a bad ending for the week at all!

Here’s wishing you all a stellar week!

Love, Janet

 

Weekly Astrology Forecast – Dec 3-9

Christmas divider

Week of December 3 – 9
This Week’s Moon:  Moon in Libra, Scorpio Sagittarius, Capricorn
Monday:      Moon opposing Uranus in Aries & conjunct Venus in Scorpio 
Tuesday:      Moon trine Mars & Neptune; Moon sextile Saturn & Pluto
Wednesday:  Sun square Neptune & Moon conjunct Mercury rx
Thursday:    Mercury turns Direct at 27 Scorpio; New Moon in Sagittarius conj Jupiter (Hawaii, Alaska, Pacific time zones) 
Friday:         New Moon in Sagittarius; Mars conjunct Neptune  
Saturday:     Moon conjunct Saturn, sextile Venus, trine Uranus 
Sunday:       Chiron turns Direct at 27 Pisces, Moon conjunct Pluto

This week the Moon moves through Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn.  As she moves through these signs, the Moon emphasizes our connections to the wider world.  She will transit across both personal and trans-personal planets this week, meaning that events may affect us personally as well as collectively.  The New Moon, the usual bright spot of the month, is plagued a bit this week by more serious transits of planets.  Let’s dig in and see how to best work with the energies of the upcoming week!   
Monday, 12/3/18 – We begin the work week with the Moon in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries.  The Moon in Libra accentuates diplomacy, teamwork, and cooperation, and Uranus in Aries is the rebel, the non-conformist.  While working as a team is valuable, maybe this is a good day to listen to what the voice of change may be saying.  Are you beating your head against a wall and expecting a different result?  Or are you ready to break out of old patterns and move forward?  The choice is yours! Later today the Moon will move into Scorpio and conjunct the planet Venus bringing us passion and sparks.  Tonight is a great date night to be with your loved one.  
  
Tuesday, 12-4-18 –  Today is a highly intuitive day as the Moon in Scorpio trines Mars & Neptune in Pisces.  Scorpio water is deep, intense and emotional and Pisces water is compassionate, creative and intuitive.  The energy today joins our intuitive and creative energies to what we are passionate about.  Dance, Sing, Write, Paint, or engage in whatever it is that brings you joy and is the creative expression of YOU.  Great day to work on decorating your home for the upcoming holidays.
The Moon is also sextile Saturn & Pluto today helping us to keep steady footing and to be grounded in reality.  We may be walking a fine line today between expressing powerful emotions and holding back emotion.  Make sure that you take responsibility for your own feelings and succumb to victim mentality.   
Wednesday, 12-5-18 – If you have a big decision to make, this is definitely not the day to make it!  With the Sun squaring Neptune, and the Moon conjunct Mercury retrograde, we are either unclear about the facts, or we are too emotional to really see the bigger picture.  We can be very tempted to act on an emotional impulse and then regret our actions later.  You may even feel discouraged because you cannot quite get to what is correct for you to do, so be okay with waiting for clarity before making any changes.  We are also in the “dark of the Moon” – that space of 2-3 days before the New Moon when things are at their darkest and murkiest.  Wait, be Cautious, Stop … take action another day.    
Thursday, 12-6-18 –  Yippee!!! Today Mercury, the messenger planet, turns back to forward motion!  We will still be in the shadow for another couple of weeks, but for the most part, we can plan for forward motion.  Mars, still in Pisces, may make things a little slow, but at least we won’t be plagued with delays and re-do’s!  Later this evening for those of us in Hawaii, Alaska and the Pacific coast, we have the New Moon in Sagittarius!  The New Moon establishes a gateway or portal into new beginnings, and in Sagittarius we are filled with Faith & Optimism in our futures.          
 
The Weekend the weekend graphic
Friday, 12-7-18 – For those of you in the Mountain time zone and parts east, today is the New Moon in Sagittarius for you.  Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces today making this a difficult day at best.  Mercury direct, New Moon in Sagittarius has primed us for forward movement, but then the planet of action, Mars, hits up Neptune and confusion results!  You may feel irritable and ill-at-ease and not know why.  You may feel like you need to move forward, but then become discouraged or feel inferior.  This would be a good day however, to do some charity or humanitarian work, or to hang out with your favorite metaphysical or spiritual buddies!  Take care with your physical well-being through the whole of the weekend!  Mars conjunct Neptune can wear down your immune system, making it easier to catch a bug or virus now.  Also beware of over-imbibing alcohol or drugs (prescription or recreational) at this time.    
 
Saturday, 12-8-18 – Early this morning the Moon moved into Capricorn and into a conjunction with Saturn.  This is not a happy-go-lucky kind of transit, on the contrary, this is a difficult one.  First, we may feel lonely or isolated, with a bit of pessimism creeping in.  This is a time that we are best left alone and not identify with what we are feeling.  This too shall pass … it is the Moon conjunct Saturn – at best a few hours and the it is gone.  Besides, there is always the Moon’s dance with Venus today to cheer us up and move us beyond the downer experience.  Be prepared for some surprises later in the day as well, perhaps your honey realizing that you weren’t feeling very happy, surprises you with a night out!  All good things come to those who wait and don’t succumb to short-term dismal transits 🙂     
 
Sunday, 12-9-18 –  Feeling a bit like you’ve been on a teeter totter moving up and then down, then up and then down?  Such has been the affect of the transits so far this weekend, and today, while not quite the same as yesterday, also carries some that same energy.  The Moon still in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto today and powerful emotions may jump to the surface for us to deal with.  Exacerbating this mood, Chiron, the Wounded Healer, changes directions today from retrograde to forward motion.  We are primed to heal, return to optimism, and move on in the glory of our own strength and power!  Seriously, it is time for us to finally and irrevocably let go of victim consciousness!  That’s the high-side of the entire weekend – choose to move forward now without the weight of your past.  Let go of guilt, shame, abandonment issues, whatever it is that you have been dealing with in the shadows, and be FREE!    
 
Have a great week! 
Janet

Astro-Energy Forecast 11-26 to 12-2-18

This week the Moon moves through Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra.  From these signs, Luna makes a lot of connections this week, especially on Thursday, affecting our personal emotional expression.  Adding to the Moon’s personal focus, most of the planets that make waves for us this week are also the personal planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars.  Where things in week’s past have been out of our hands or were more trans-personal or collective in nature, this week is more focused on our personal choices and actions. 

Week of November 26 – December 2
 
 
This Week’s Moon:  Moon in Cancer, Leo, Virgo & Libra
Monday:  Mercury Square Mars
Tuesday:  Mercury conjunct Sun, Mars sextile Saturn, Mercury conjunct Jupiter
Wednesday:  No New Connections
Thursday:  Luna makes 7 Connections 
Friday:  Venus opposing Uranus
Saturday:  Mercury retrogrades back into Scorpio (repeat) 
Sunday:  Venus moves forward into Scorpio (repeat), Sun square Mars
 
 
This week the Moon moves through Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra.  From these signs, Luna makes a lot of connections this week, especially on Thursday, affecting our personal emotional expression.  Adding to the Moon’s personal focus, most of the planets that make waves for us this week are also the personal planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars.  Where things in week’s past have been out of our hands or were more trans-personal or collective in nature, this week is more focused on our personal choices and actions.  So let’s break it down by days:
 
 
Monday – The Moon is in Cancer, and at least for those of us in the USA, we may be wishing to stay home one more day to enjoy the holiday!  Our instincts may have been correct because the Moon is in challenging aspect today to Pluto (opposition) and squaring both Venus and Uranus.  There is the possibility for intensity in our relationships at work and with challenges from both Venus & Uranus, there may be unexpected outcomes if we get overly emotional.  Mercury rx is also squaring Mars today, so we must watch our words, actions and emotional outbursts.  If you can stay home an extra day this week, make it today!  IF not, then just be aware of the impact you have on others.  If you overreact or speak first think later, this can be a most uncomfortable day.  However, if you can swim in the neutral zone today, you will do just fine!
  
 
Tuesday – The Moon transitioned out of Cancer and into Leo while you were sleeping.  And we have another highly energetic day with many of the inner planets dancing with one another.  The difference between yesterday’s energy and today’s is that the planets involved are making positive and beneficial connections to one another, so today feels completely different!  The Moon flows with Jupiter, Mercury and the Sun today aligning our emotions and mind allowing us to get some things done!  Yay we have been waiting for a day like this!! 
 
 
Mercury conjuncts the Sun today in what is called the “inferior conjunction.”  From our viewpoint on Earth, Mercury stands between us and the Sun.  This signals the beginning of the Mercury cycle (even though the little messenger planet is still retrograde) and the beginning of the Mercury cycle tells our minds that it is almost ready to hatch a new direction, a new plan, or a new way of being, thinking and acting.  Wherever this is happening in your personal astrology chart, tells you where you are ready to make the transition into new territory.  This is exciting news because we have been feeling stuck, rudderless and even directionless.  And, even though it isn’t time to take action yet, we may feel buoyed by knowing what direction we are going to move in.  By the way, this is a process that occurs possibly before, during or just after this connection is exact.
 
Mercury is also conjunct Jupiter today making this even more of a “new beginning” feeling.  Just remember that while Mercury is retrograde, don’t start something new, however, make the plans for something new to begin once the retrograde completes December 6!  Jupiter’s connection here makes us feel optimistic in a way that we might not have felt in a long time.  Take it easy and don’t go overboard!  Keep everything you do and or plan to do within reason!  
 
 
Wednesday –  There are no major changes in energy today.  Given that yesterday and tomorrow’s planets are highly active, this is a good thing! The Moon continues through Leo and we’re feeling good about ourselves and our prospects for the future.  This is a great day to play, be generous with your time and have some fun! 
 
 
Thursday –  Today the Moon in Virgo is all business, and she is challenging and challenged by just about every planet in some way.  The Moon is in great aspect to Venus, Uranus & Saturn today.  We may feel like time is on our side for once and we may even see the fruits of some of our labors.  However, Luna is challenged by Jupiter, Mercury, the Sun and Mars today.  We must have plans to move forward before we move forward … at least that is what seems to be being communicated to us.  Jupiter & Sun in Fire sign Sagittarius give us the energy we need to move forward and the optimism to see it done, but Mars (a fire planet) is sitting in water and has his action slowed and with Mercury still retrograde we are cautioned to hold on just a while longer.  
 
There is still much to be done however.  We have all the “behind the scenes” stuff we can be working on… writing copy for our new websites, writing scripts for videos we want to produce, setting the action steps up for our goals, etc.  Moon in Virgo is in Earth … pragmatic, analytical and deliberate!  Resist flying off in all directions and you will be rewarded later when your plans execute exactly as you had envisioned them.        
 
The Weekend 
Friday –  The Moon in Virgo all day provides the energy for getting things done!  Organize, plan, analyze and clean up your desk or office or home.  Today’s moon energy helps us to clear away anything that we need to do before the weekend!  Take advantage of Virgo’s ruling planet Mercury in retrograde as it gives us the ability to re-think & re-evaluate our plans.  I know … re-arrange the furniture!  Make room at home for your Christmas Tree! 
 
 
Venus also opposes Uranus today giving us a break from the norm in our routines.  There is also the possibility that we meet someone new that has an impact on us.  Watch out for upsets within your relationships as well.  With Mercury in retrograde, words can come out wrong, and your intended actions can be misinterpreted.  On the other hand, Venus in the last degrees of her own sign, Libra and Uranus back in Aries make for excitement and trying new things.  
 
Saturday   – The Moon moves into lovely Libra early this morning and puts emphasis on our partnerships and relationships.  Things may take a steamy turn for the better later when Mercury retrogrades backward into Scorpio and turns our minds to passion and love.  Mercury Rx in Scorpio can also cause our minds to focus on what we don’t have – looking for a love interest or relationship?  Put yourself out there in the world where the people are you would like to meet, instead of staying in your mind and “re-minding” yourself of what you don’t have.  
 
Sunday –   There is sexual tension in the air today!  The Sun squares Mars, which can escalate our frustrations if we don’t have an appropriate channel to dispel the energies, can either make for a great action day or an anxious & upsetting day.  Venus, moving forward now, changes signs into Scorpio and joins Mercury Rx in the sign of passion, sex, and intensity.  The tension could be palpable … if sex isn’t in the cards for you, then exercise is!  You have to be able to move some energy to alleviate the stressful energy today.  I would love to say to do some yoga, or meditation, but I think the energy is too high for that (trying to sit still and be quiet could just add to your frustration when you can’t achieve that kind of mindfulness.)  Dance, sing, hike, spin, jog … just move your body!       
 
Have a great week! 
Janet

Week of November 5-11, 2018 

month-november-autumn

Highlights for this Week: 

Moon in Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn
Uranus Rx into Aries
New Moon in Scorpio
Jupiter into Sagittarius
Venus rx Trine Mars
Sun sextile Pluto
+Election Day
+Veteran’s Day
Wow what a list of astrological events characterize the upcoming week!  Add to that Election Day in the USA, and this first full week in November promises to be very active!
  
We begin the week on Monday with the Moon in Diplomatic, Political and Relationship oriented Libra until early Tuesday (Election Day in the USA) morning.  It’s too bad that the Moon cannot stay there for the entire day as it would likely make for more harmony!  But, on Tuesday morning 5:02 am PST/8:02 am EST, the Moon moves into Scorpio and the S*#! gets deep, passion-filled and intense!  Add to that Uranus in retrograde moving backward into revolutionary Aries and it feels like this would be a great day to turn off the TV, your Phone, Social Media and just pretend that we are in an ideal world of Love & Joy, as likely the news is going to be going back and forth with rhetoric from candidates, news anchors reporting on events, and political pundits spinning stories & justifications.  UGH! 
One more thing to note, the Moon in Scorpio is transformative, and as such, we are likely going to see the political landscape changed when we wake up to the New Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday.  New beginnings, a fresh start, hope & optimism for a future less divisive and polarizing?  It is certainly possible, and I feel like Jupiter’s move into Sagittarius on Thursday will fuel some optimism and hope for the future.  It is going to be up to each and every one of us to heal the division within us in order to see that reflected to us in the outer world.  We can and must engage kinder, gentler and more loving energy with one another!  Now is the time!
  
Let’s get comfortable with Sagittarius energy as it is with us for awhile now.  Jupiter moves into Sag Thursday morning at 4:36 am PST for a 1 year stay, followed by the Moon’s move into Sagittarius just 7 hours later.  The Moon nurtures and feeds our souls emotionally and reminds us of what is being reflected to us.  As Luna greets Jupiter, we may feel emotionally raw or at the other end emotionally exhilarated.  Just remember to take care of yourself and be kind to everyone you meet today as we try on this new energy of Largess, Generosity and Growth.  No need for self-righteous zealotry … can’t we all just grow up and get along?? Jup in Sag
We go into the weekend with the Moon in Sagittarius until Saturday evening.  As the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day based on the sign it is in, then we can expect the ending of the week and Saturday to be good for getting outdoors, putting your restless energy into motion and enjoying freedom!  Of the two days this weekend, Saturday is the one to play & enjoy.  Things get more serious Saturday evening and on Sunday when the Moon moves into Capricorn.  Finish the weekend by doing the things you have procrastinated on doing – you’ll feel so much better and feel accomplished when you see the results of your taking the initiative to get things done!  Since this is Veteran’s Day, it is also a good day for somber remembrance, and for recognizing those who have served their country well.  Acknowledge a Vet, give them a pat on the back, or a huge Thank you for your Service!  That would be a nice way to end the week! 
Blessings to all,
Janet

Astro-Human Design for the Week Ahead

Astro-Human Design Highlights the Week of Oct. 29-Nov. 4, 2018
Moon in Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra
Mercury conjunct Jupiter
Mercury enters Shadow of next Rx
Venus Rx opposing Uranus
Helical rise of Venus 
We begin the week with the Moon in nurturing, mothering & protective Cancer.  Monday, Mercury joins Jupiter in Scorpio and with the Moon in Cancer a nice flow of emotional energies emerges.  We are more compassionate and caring in our interactions with one another.  A nice extra for us at the beginning of the week is that Mercury & Jupiter are both at Gate 14 in Human Design to bring us abundance, flow … think bounteousness. Be aware though, Mercury enters into the shadow of his next retrograde period on Monday.  Things may begin to feel slower … your mind, communication, correspondence and such.  Start now to become more mindful in every moment and take care to speak more clearly.
Tuesday evening the Moon moves into Leo after an 11 minute Void of Course and so begins the more playful energies of the week. If you have kids, they are getting excited about donning their costumes and trick-or-treating.  Give yourself over to their happiness and enthusiasm. If you don’t have kids, you can still get your house ready for trick-or-treaters! 
However, on Wednesday-Halloween, we may abruptly come up against the drama Kings or Queens in our lives as Venus retrograde opposes Uranus possibly causing upsets in our relationships.  If you have someone in your life that triggers you now, try to remember how much you love them, and that for whatever reason, right now they are reacting to something in the energies of the day.  Don’t allow yourself to get sucked up into the traumas/dramas right now.  This can be a time of over-indulgence, so monitor the candy consumption 🙂  LOL  Venus also rules our finances, so today is not a great day to over-extend yourself by taking out a loan or taking on more debt.  The opposite may also be true today, financial windfalls that are unexpected can appear.  Whichever way it goes for you, just be cautious with your money for now. 
 
We have also come to the day that Venus rises as the morning star, and so begins an extended time of social changes & upheavals.  The ancient Maya believed that Venus rising as the morning star signaled changes in leadership in their government and changes in the social dynamics – ie what people tolerated and what they didn’t tolerate.  For those of us in the USA, this comes very near to mid-term elections and Jupiter’s move into Sagittarius (more on that next week).  I truly believe there will be some interesting outcomes with the elections here in the USA and if that doesn’t disrupt the way things have been going, then Jupiter moving into more tolerant, optimistic Sagittarius next week will certainly do it.

 

Wednesday begins the new Human Design Week with the Sun at Gate 44 – Patterns and the Earth at Gate 24 – Rationalizing. This Sun/Earth combination reminds us that evolution and progress proceeds in periods of leaps, and then reversals … two steps forward and then one step back.  We don’t always need to move forward without taking with us the best of the past.  What the world needs now is our ability to see the best values that form our past and the foundation for our humanity and carry them into the NOW in preparation for a bright new future.  Does it make sense to carry on with Hate & Divisiveness or can we dig deeper and remind each other our common humanity in Love & Oneness?

Human Design Chart
Week of Oct. 31 – Sun at Gate 44 and Earth at Gate 24

 

No matter the dramas of outer world, the end of the week sees the moon move into Virgo, and we get down to the practical basics of life.  Friday & Saturday are great organizing days.  Write up your Thanksgiving menus, get out your holiday decor, do the shopping, clean out the cupboards.  Be grounded in the very things that help you run your household smoothly.  You won’t have another weekend with this much organizing energy until after Thanksgiving … so take advantage.  
Sunday morning the Moon moves into Libra, sign of relationship harmony & beauty, making a very nice ending to our weekend.  Today is a great day to spend quality time with your loved ones.  Do something fun and maybe something different than you usually do with each other.  Be Love  ❤️
I wish you all a Loving, Abundant and Joyful week ahead!

Astrology & Human Design for the Weekend 2-2-18 through 2-4-18

Hello Everyone,

Typically I would be on FB Live this morning telling you all about the energy for the weekend.  However, today I have to be in Seattle early so I chose instead to write this for you.

Today we have the Moon traveling through Virgo.  The Moon spent a few days in Leo triggering our ideas, creative energies and inspiring us get busy doing something.  Now with the Moon’s shift into Virgo territory we are tasked with actually taking action or at the very least laying down the plan for action.  Sometimes this kind of day can make us want to jump into doing something, anything, to relieve the tension.  Just be sure that you are taking action according to your Human Design Type & Strategy.  If you do not know what I mean by Human Design, or you do not know what your Human Design Type or Strategy is, please request a free Human Design chart here.

Virgo energy stays with us through most of Saturday, giving us an opportunity to organize, vitalize, and make plans.  Use today to clean out the cupboards, empty out your refrigerator, de-clutter, grocery shop, clean or anything else that is task-oriented.  Be sure to tick off the tasks on your To-Do list in order to feel a sense of accomplishment!

Later in the day and through Sunday, the Moon moves into the sign of Libra.  I wonder – out loud – how the Moon in Libra will effect the Super Bowl?  The Moon in Libra would seem to suggest that the teams are evenly matched.  Does that make for a great game going back and forth?  Or, does it make for a boring game?  I guess we’ll find out 🙂  Either way, the Libra moon makes for great get-togethers and gatherings of people having fun, and being merry.

Adding to the camaraderie of the Moon in Libra on Sunday, we have Venus squaring Jupiter (they are in a 90 degree relationship with one another), which makes for a very social atmosphere.  What better combination of transits for the Super Bowl?

One thing to watch out for … being optimistic and having fun can sometimes translate into over-imbibing or over-eating, so be proportional in your food and drink 🙂  You don’t want to ruin a fun day by getting sick from over indulging 🙂

I pulled a card from the oracle deck, Wisdom of the Oracle by Collette Baron-Reid, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s a card we had earlier in the week – Exchanging Gifts.  I tried to choose another card, because I couldn’t believe that this was the right card, and I pulled it a second time!  Okay, okay, I get the message 🙂

Exchanging Gifts card

It’s such a beautiful card!  And, it has a lovely meaning as well.  It speaks about the Law of Giving and Receiving and being balanced in both.

The message reminds us that we are Human BEINGS, and that Doing, Doing, Doing is not a balanced way of engaging in life.

It also reminds us that Giving-Receiving is part of a continuum – To give is to receive, and to receive is to give.

Lovely message for us for the weekend!

 

I’ll be back on air Monday morning to give you the Daily Astrology-Human Design Energy Report, Live on the Living Astrology Facebook page.  See you then!

Blessings,

Janet
