Busy, Fun and a Bit Unpredictable This Week

Weekly Astrology Overview:

A much easier week is ahead for us and one that likely will be filled with ideas, conversations, fun and social events.  That’s not only in the stars, but here in the USA Memorial Day weekend is coming up and that means potential BBQ’s, picnics and family gatherings!

The biggest astrology news of the week is both the Sun and Mercury moving into Gemini and conjunct one another on the same day!  I would be prepared for busy-ness, a lot of activity and possible scattering of energy as we may lose focus easily with so much going on around us!  The only other “big news” this week is Mars sextile Uranus, where we may feel restless or impatient, and we then jump into making rash decisions.  Let’s break down the week:

Monday, May 20, 2019

MondayWe begin the work week with the Moon in Sagittarius.  There is hope, optimism and excitement.  We’re looking forward, having left the emotional full Moon in Scorpio behind us!

The Moon squares Neptune today.  We may be in a dreamy state of mind and feel like escaping reality.  We may be super sensitive to our environments as well, so make sure you stay away from toxins – including people who have a negative effect on you.

Later today the Moon conjuncts Jupiter leaving us with good feelings and a generosity of spirit.  We are less likely to get triggered by events or people around us.  About the only possible negative here is that we might latch onto an idea or objective and become obsessed with it.  If you experience this effect, then you have to look deeply within your subconscious mind to discover what this means for you.

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

While you slept, the Moon moved into Capricorn, the Sun moved into Gemini and then TuesdayMercury moved into Gemini!  That’s a lot of energy surges happening while you’re trying to sleep, so don’t be surprised if your night was restless and/or you took part in many different dreams!

Let’s start with the Moon in Capricorn which is business-oriented and task centered.  We can get things done, that is if the Sun and Mercury didn’t both move into Gemini at nearly the same time!  LOL

The Sun and Mercury in Gemini are sociable, communicative, and easily distracted.  That could make getting anything done nearly impossible as we are pulled in many different directions.  It does make for excitement and sharing of ideas though, and eventually the work gets done.  So relax and enjoy the conversation, exchange of ideas, and the minds  capriciousness for now 🙂

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Capricorn and Mars sextiles Uranus.  On the one hand, there is much opportunity to get things done, and on the other hand, things may happen that distract you or take you away from your stated goals and intentions for the day.  I would say that this is a day to master “going with the flow” as nothing may go as expected!

Mars and Uranus are both very active planets, although Mars is more deliberate, he is debilitated and frustrated a bit by his placement in Cancer right now.  Uranus, in earthy Taurus, is also slowed down by his placement. These two planets coming together could spell frustration, irritation, restlessness and erratic behavior.  Be careful with what you say or do today.  Be especially careful around metal and electricity!  That includes driving!  This energy could last for a few days!

The Moon is also conjunct both Saturn and Pluto today.  There could be emotional undercurrents fueling the Mars/Uranus energies.  Watch for becoming overly reactive to people and events today. Remember that you always have a choice on how to react or respond to what is going on in your life.

Thursday, May 23, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from last night at 8:57 pm PT until today at 10:49 am PT when Happy-Thursday-022it moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius.  I sincerely hope the Moon’s move helps us to see things more clearly and with less emotion than the last couple of days!

The Moon in Aquarius often brings us brilliant flashes of inspiration or epiphanies.  Things that were hidden from us can burst out in a moment of absolute clarity.  The Moon squares Uranus today, the ruler of the sign Aquarius.  We want excitement, freedom and movement, but with the rebellious nature of Uranus in Aquarius we may not necessarily be able to make decisions that are good for us.  Refrain from doing anything rash or risky!

Friday, May 24, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon is in Aquarius all day today, but has a more peaceful use for the energy as Venus is also involved with the Moon.  For those of you in the USA anticipating a 3-day weekend, there is enough energy to make the day go quickly, but not enough to create havoc.  Try to complete projects and clear off your desk so that you start next week with ease.

the weekend graphicNOTE:  I’m including Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the weekend astrology because of the Memorial weekend in the USA.

First a few words about the weekend for those of you who are celebrating a long one by camping or getting out into the great outdoors.  The Moon transitions into Pisces late Saturday, and spends Sunday and Monday in the sign of water.  Be Careful – especially around water this weekend.  Keep your wits about you when boating or swimming or participating in other water sports.

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius is ready to play!  The only major aspect for the day is a sextile to Jupiter and that means good times!  Have fun, but remember that the Moon in Aquarius can be unpredictable, and this makes it a day to try not to take risks.  Be safe and sane while you’re having fun!

Sunday, May 26, 2019

The Moon has transitioned into Pisces, generally speaking a sign of calmer, more compassionate energy.  But, the Moon actively engages with Uranus, the Sun and Mars today, adding unpredictability and aggressiveness to the energy.  We may be tempted to overdo it, so have perspective and a sense of proportionality to everything you do!  Keep it a fun and relaxing time.

Monday, May 27, 2019  Happy Memorial Day

Monday memeToday the Moon spends the day in Pisces and is challenging Mercury.  We may be feeling a little tired or low energy to begin the day, especially if we have had an especially busy or action-packed weekend.  Our minds may not be clear either, so take some time to relax, breathe and enjoy the time spent away from the usual daily work you do.

The Moon conjuncts Neptune today as well, and we may feel especially creative and imaginative.  Our intuition is also heightened on a day like today.  Pay attention to the signs, symbols and images that come up in your mind as they may hold the key to your potential.

Make it a great week everyone, and enjoy the extended time for the weekend!

Love & Blessings,
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

 

Real Action With a Twist of Imagination

Hopefully everyone moved through the New Moon/Solar Eclipse gateway with plans, ideas and inspiration for what comes next in your lives.  Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and upsets turns direct (forward) today and we now have all the planets in forward motion.  This is the first time in a long while that we have had so many green lights to take action, and we definitely want to use this energy while we have it! 

Weekly Astrology Forecast – Jan. 7-13, 2019

Hopefully everyone moved through the New Moon/Solar Eclipse gateway with plans, ideas and inspiration for what comes next in your lives.  Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and upsets turns direct (forward) today and we now have all the planets in forward motion.  This is the first time in a long while that we have had so many green lights to take action, and we definitely want to use this energy while we have it!  

Even our Human Design astrology is inspiring us to move forward.  The Sun at Gate 54-Ambition and the Earth at Gate 53-Starting Things, makes it more unlikely that we will remain stagnant this week, as to blast off into new territory.  The favored action, however, is based on a plan, deliberation, and taking a one-step-at-a-time approach.  Taking action just for action’s sake will not get you anywhere.  Real action is much more aligned with a great vision or dream, and that is where your twist of imagination comes into play.  

This week we are definitely urged to be real, and late in the week, Neptune (planet of creativity, imagination, delusion spirituality & more) becomes more prominent across the backdrop of planetary movements, and that is where imagination, thinking differently, and writing a new story supports our forward momentum.  

Let’s breakdown the week ahead: 

First, the Moon moves through Aquarius, Pisces and Aries this week.  Our emotional self is about being in a new wave length, being creative and taking bold action.  Sounds good, right?

monday (3)

Monday January 7, 2019:  The Moon in Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries gives us great energy and outlook to move forward with our plan of action.  We may experience frustration if anything gets in our way though, so be patient if things are not working out the way you think they should.  Slow down for just a minute and check to see if you can find a unique solution to any problems that show up.

Venus moves into Sagittarius today where it stays until February 3, 2019.  While in Scorpio romance was passionate and intense.  During her transit in Sagittarius the romantic energy shifts to adventurous and playful.  Besides romance, Venus also rules money and our values.  We may see some temporary good news coming in from the financial markets over the next few weeks, but don’t let that push you into over-optimistically spending or incurring debt.  Remember that this year favors “cautious growth” and good stewardship of our resources.  Stay aligned with your core values.

tuesday 

Tuesday January 8, 2019:  The Moon in Aquarius today is in good relationship to Jupiter in Sagittarius.  There is a perfect match to our inventive, creative sides and our optimistic and growth oriented sides.  Today is a good day to see things differently.  Rise to a higher level in order to change your perspective on things. 

Mercury in Capricorn squares (challenges) Mars in Aries today.  Our minds are sharp and there are few filters between what we think, our mouths and what we want to take action on today.  Try not to get caught up in arguments or disagreements.  Recognize that your own inner conflict may be arising through things that your mind is focused on.  The best way to avoid taking wrong action, is to breathe and then decide on what course of action to take.  This is not a good day to be abrupt, make snap decisions, or allow your anger to get the best of you.  Instead breathe deep, take your time, get outdoors and avoid conflict whenever you can.  

wednesday

Wednesday January 9, 2019:  The Moon is void-of-course from 8:53 am PT to 11:43 am PT.  That means we avoid starting anything new or making big decisions during that time.  The VOC ends with the Moon’s move into Pisces and then we can let our creative ideas flow and let intuition guide our actions.  The Moon and Uranus are in a good relationship today and we might be surprised by some of the inspiring creative ideas that are coming to us.  This might be a good day to try new things, but be prepared for some ups and downs – nothing horrible, just a little bouncy!  

Later in the day the Moon in Pisces squares Venus in Sagittarius.  We may feel pulled in different directions.  The Moon in Pisces more dreamy and cautious, but Venus in Sagittarius is ready to go and boldly adventures forth.  Rather than just jumping into something, wait for things to get a little clearer.  

thursday

Thursday January 10, 2019:  Today may be a mixed bag sort of day.  This morning the Moon in Pisces is in great relationship to Mercury in Capricorn and things seem to be running smoothly.  This is a great time to establish understandings with those around you that can be mutually beneficial and last for the long-haul.  During the afternoon the Moon and Saturn team up and we experience a “cooling” in the the energy of the day.  The best way to deal with the energy of the afternoon is to keep it simple.  The last part of the day and into the evening the Moon conjuncts Neptune and we are back to more pleasant dreams and musings. 

The Weekendthe weekend graphic

Friday January 11, 2019:   The Moon in Pisces turns Void-of-Course at 6:25 am PT until Saturday morning at Midnight.  That makes most of the day today one for batting “clean up.”  This won’t be a good day to start anything new, so clean off your desk, finish things that have been left undone from the week, relax, meditate or take the day off!

The last aspect the Moon makes before going into void is a sextile to the Sun, suggesting that we go with the flow and not resist what is happening around us.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway.

Saturday January 12, 2019:  While you slept, the Moon moved out of Pisces and into Aries fundamentally shifting the emotional energy for the weekend from peaceful, dreaminess to action-oriented “let’s do this!”  The pace of the weekend definitely picks up, and later in the day the Moon will conjunct Mars, the ruler of Aries.  Here is when we want to watch out for confrontation and conflict.  Rash moves, overblown feelings, emotional conflict, and anger can be lurking around the corner, so it is a good day to take it easy and not push, or be pushed, too far. Similarly, don’t let high energy push you in where angels fear to tread — overconfidence can get you into hot water. Count to ten, then go ahead.

Sunday January 13, 2019:  The day begins with the Moon in Aries squaring (challenging) both Mercury and Saturn in Capricorn.  Are you stuck in old patterns of behavior, thinking or being?  If so, make a break through!  Avoid staying stagnant in anything, yet taking deliberate action is much better than just striking out and doing anything just to break the tension.  Later today the Moon will be in a better mood as it aligns with optimistic Jupiter.  Maybe spend some time with friends today doing things you love. 

The Moon will also square the Sun today and we come to the first crisis point since the New Moon Solar Eclipse on January 5, 2019.  This is the Crisis of Action, and we may see that there are stumbling blocks in getting our goals accomplished.  The test is whether you give up on your goals or do you find the path of flow that leads you closer to where you want to be?  Sometimes it takes a few tries before we get where we want to be.  Be willing to adjust your goals, but don’t give up. 

Today we come to the first pass of Jupiter square Neptune.  This transit repeat two more times in 2019 and is one where we must be careful to detoxify our environment.  And by environment I mean your body, your relationships, your thinking, and even your beliefs.  Take care not to get drawn into schemes by less than scrupulous people.  This is a time to really hold to your intuition and not get blinded by things that other people tell you.  Do your own due diligence before doing anything out of the ordinary. 

I wish everyone a blessed week!   ~ Janet Hickox 

  

The Weekly Astrology Forecast – Dec 10-16

Week of December 10-16, 2018

This Week’s Moon:  Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces & Aries

  • Monday:  Moon in Capricorn square Uranus; VOC (void of course moon),  Sun at Gate 26, Earth at Gate 45
  • Tuesday:  Moon in Aquarius square Venus and sextile Jupiter
  • Wednesday: Moon in Aquarius sextile Sun from Aquarius to Sagittarius
  • Thursday: Moon in Aquarius sextile Uranus, square Mercury, trine Venus, square Jupiter, sextile Saturn, Mercury Gate 34, Mars Gate 22 
  • Friday:  Moon in Pisces conj Neptune & Mars, sextile Pluto, Venus into Gate 44
  • Saturday: Moon in Pisces square Sun (Crisis of Action), Moon trine Mercury, New HD Week Sun at 11, Earth at 12
  • Sunday: Moon in Aries trine Jupiter, square Saturn, Venus sextile Saturn, Mars sextile Pluto

This week the Moon moves through Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces & Aries.  The focus this week seems to be on our being true to ourselves and expressing ourselves from that place.  We are also tasked with watching our words and speaking carefully so that we don’t hurt people with carelessly worded texts or emails.  For the most part, we are looking at a good week for socializing and having fun … just don’t over-do anything.  Let’s take a deeper look:  

Monday, 12/10/18 – We begin the work week with the Moon in business oriented Capricorn.  The Moon this morning sets aside emotional concerns in favor straight-forward action. Get out your To-Do list and get to work!  Later in the day, the Moon moves Void of Course, which means that any forward action slows down.  The Void of Course Moon occurs when the Moon makes its last connection to any planet or point before moving into the next sign.  From 1:27 pm Pacific-3:40 pm Pacific, avoid starting anything new.  It is a good time to finish things up, clear off your desk or work area, and end your work day early! 

Who or what are you being influenced by?  That’s the question posed to us by the Sun & Earth in this week’s human design energy.  The Sun at Gate 26 is tasked with integrity, and in this case integrity is not something dictated to you from without – it is you being true to you.  The word Integrity comes from the same root word as integument (your skin).  Integrity then, is being true to yourself or being in your own skin.  The Earth, who is the body that becomes challenged by the Sun, is sitting at Gate 45- the gate of the CEO or Natural Leader.  The major theme for the week seems to be about whether we are being our own “boss” or are we falling prey to what others want us to believe is true about us. Don’t be led astray, and also be careful that you’re not manipulating others to be something that they are not!  

Best Action:  Be TRUE to YOU and allow others to be TRUE to themselves!     

Tuesday, 12-11-18 – The Moon moved into Aquarius yesterday afternoon/evening, and Moon in Aquariusthe atmosphere is now charged with electricity, expectancy and unpredictability!  We have the opportunity to see things differently and with our own unique perspective.  The Moon squares Venus in Scorpio and sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius – it’s time to socialize and party!  If you are attending any holiday parties, expect to have a good time.  However … these two planets when meeting up with the Moon can cause us to overindulge in food and drink.  Discipline is in short supply, so be very conscious about how much you are imbibing!

Best Action:  Have fun, socialize, and be aware of how much food and drink you are partaking in.      

Wednesday, 12-12-18 – Today the Moon is in Aquarius and in a beautiful relationship with the Sun making this a fabulous day to interact with your friends, co-workers and groups you associate with.  You are able to establish good emotional connections with people today.  Opportunities can come up unexpectedly today – especially through friends or people you network with.  The best thing about today is people are generally in a good mood, and that makes this a great day to be out and about in contact with others.  

 Best Action:  Socialize, Communicate, Share, and pay attention to your friends.      

Thursday, 12-13-18 – The Moon transitions into Pisces early in the day today (4:40 am PT/7:40 am ET).  Our intuition is heightened, but we may have a harder time making concrete decisions for the next few days as in Pisces, commitment is hard to come by!  Treat yourself and other kindly and with compassion, as there is a bit of an emotional atmosphere around us.  For most of the day the Moon challenges the planet Mercury and there is a higher possibility of misunderstanding people’s words and meanings.  Monitor your text messages and emails because it is very hard to gauge the emotion in that kind of communication – in other words it is much more likely people will misread the emotion in your written words.  Watch over-reacting to what other people may say or write to you as well. 

Mercury is sitting at Gate 34 in your Human Design chart, and we may tend to “push or force” people with our words…another reason to be careful in your communications today.  Mars is sitting at Gate 22 – usually a setting for charm & grace.  But… and this is a big but…The gate 22 sits on the emotional center and that means we may feel charming or NOT, and if NOT then Mars, planet of action, may cause us to knee-jerk and react in most unbecoming ways. 

Best Action:  BREATHE before saying anything, hitting send on any communication and emotional over-reacting to the words people may be saying.

The Weekend

Friday, 12-14-18 – Today the Moon in Pisces conjuncts both Neptune & Mars and shares nicely with Pluto.  With the Moon conjunct Neptune a dreamy state of affairs marks the surroundings and it may be difficult to pin things down or get anyone else to, either. Fantasy is favored, along with speculation, hopefulness, and prayer/meditation. Anything you try to formalize won’t stay that way, so it’s a better day for imagination than concrete efforts.  

Late in the day, the Moon conjuncts Mars and rash moves, overblown feelings, emotional conflict, and anger can be lurking around the corner, so tonight take it easy and don’t push, or be pushed, too far. You don’t want to start your weekend in anger and confrontation. 

Venus moves into the Gate 44 in your Human Design today.  Gate 44 is on the Spleen and that means it can double as a FEAR gate (False Evidence Appearing Real).  What may trigger us now is a fear that the past is going to repeat itself.  We’re very adept at recognizing patterns now, but just because we see a pattern building doesn’t mean that the past will repeat.  We always have a choice.  Think of the past as baggage, there are useful items there, but use them in a new way.  

Best Action:  Be calm, cool and collected.  Don’t push or be pushed.    

Saturday, 12-15-18   – The Moon is in Pisces today until 4:44 pm PT (I only put the time because of the triple digits 🙂) and is square to the Sun.  That means we are in the first challenge to our intentions since the New Moon last week opened up a portal for new intentions and manifestations.  We call this time the Crisis of Action as we are likely meeting some resistance to our ideas in the outer world.  We may need to adjust our actions to better align with our heart’s desires.  Don’t let blocks or limits bring you down or crush your intentions, instead ask what else you can do. 

As the Moon moves into Aries, events pick up pace for the next couple of days. The early bird definitely gets the worm, so if you’re in competition, get your bid in first. 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.

Today is a good time to express your feelings with conviction, knowing that there will be response in kind. Situations that arise now will have lasting clarity and a quality of self-reinvention as they move along, as head and heart are on the same page and will tend to remain that way.

Today is also the beginning of the new Human Design week, with the Sun moving into Gate 11 and the Earth at Gate 12.  We are tasked with letting our light shine!  Being the lights of the world, and in aligning our voices with what we are illuminating for others we find that alignment with head & heart.

Best Action:  Use your energy positively to express the light of your full-being to the world.  Don’t give up on your intentions or dreams just because a block was thrown in your path – find a way around the block and continue your journey!      

Sunday, 12-16-18 – Today the Moon is in Aries all day – we are filled with energy and need to be careful how we use it!  Venus and Saturn are in a companionable sextile today, and we find that it is the little things in life that can be the most satisfying. Simple desires, simply satisfied, have a way of sustaining life that allows both joy and unhindered progress. Today’s endeavors will share that quality as they develop – simple & satisfying.

The Moon trines Jupiter today so emotional tides are strong and upbeat, and all you have to do is ride them as if you were born to sail. Foundations laid today will be firm and supportive and continue to evolve that way.  Feelings of friendship abound and it’s easy to see the good side of anyone — just remember there may be other sides, too.  With the Moon challenging Saturn today, some people are feeling insecure, so avoid encouraging any negativity you encounter. New directions are not in order, as they won’t go far, so wait just a bit longer to start your engine. 

The planet Mars and Pluto come together today as well.  Being firm but not controlling is the key to getting along for everyone. Stick to your guns but don’t point them at others and all will go smoothly. When expectations are clear, it is easy to achieve harmony and mutual cooperation. The mere assumption that it’s going to work out is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Best Action:  Use your energy wisely, enjoying the simple things in life.  While there is an upbeat feeling to the day, some people may be feeling low, so be a source of positive energy for all you meet.  

Have a great week!
