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,

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

 

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy

Astrology for the Week of March 24-31, 2019

I hope everyone had a spectacular Spring or Fall Equinox and enjoyed the shifting energies of last week.  If you tuned into the spirit and quality of the time we just passed through, what you might find is that the world is awash in new potential, and we humans are not immune to the rush of newness.  After all, the 0 Aries point (known as Spring or Fall) marks the beginning of the astrological new year – all is indeed, new!

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy.  And, perhaps best of all, Mercury turns from retrograde into Direct motion.  I would say that the character of the week or the buzz word of this week is CHANGE.

Let’s dig in and get the details:

SundaySunday, March 24, 2019 –  While I normally include Sunday in the previous week, I didn’t write a complete post for last week, so I want to make sure we start there.  The Moon is in Scorpio for the day and things are not light, airy and breezy, but more intense, passionate with hidden currents moving through the collective.  That doesn’t mean it’s a bad day, but rather it makes it a good day to do some personal processing work, or try to get to the bottom of something.

Mercury Rx conjunct Neptune – There are two distinct potentials to how this transit can play out today.  The positive expression is that it enables you to think and express yourself with subtlety, expressing ideas and feelings that you don’t always have access to.  Artistic and creative expression is heightened, but as you are easily accessing the subconscious realms, not everyone may understand what you are trying to convey.  During this time our imaginative and mysterious inclinations are favored.

The more negative expression of this transit occurs when our imagination pushes us into illusion or unreality.  We may feel like we can enact our fantasies, and then when this transit is over the reality of our folly reveals our confused and unclear thinking.  This is not likely going to be a day of making big, life-changing decisions.

Another difficulty with this transit is the possibility of communication missteps.  We aren’t thinking clearly and our words, though they sound good to us, are not being heard by other people in their best light.  What you say may be easily misunderstood, so take care to be clear when communicating anything of importance.

Hello MondayMonday, March 25, 2019 – While you slept, the Moon moved in Sagittarius.  I just love starting a work week with the Moon in go-ahead mood and in the sign of Sagittarius.  We are moved to see the humor in things today, and we greet the day with a sense of adventure and optimism.  About the only thing to watch out for is an over-optimistic view that focuses on big ideas, but has few details.  Remember that if you are embarking on something new now, it takes both the big picture and the details to make it complete.

Moon trine Sun – Today’s accomplishments feel good and provide the basis for what will come later.  Meeting new people today may have an impact on you that lasts.  If something feels right, then it probably is right.  Your job is to put your best foot forward and follow through!

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 – Venus ingress Pisces  Venus in Pisces

Today Venus leaves Transpersonal Aquarius for Transcendent Pisces. Themes and values like Love, Universal Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Abundance & Flow emerge into our awareness.

Now Venus puts on her ethereal garb. In Pisces, Venus is exalted – meaning she is very comfortable in the sign.  She can get caught up in the magic of romance as love and attraction get idealized. The lines get blurred for us between what is real and what is imagined. On the other hand, we are more compassionate and sensitive to one another’s pain which moves us to altruism and acts of kindness and generosity. Venus is in Pisces until April 20.

Wed imageWednesday, March 27, 2019 – The Moon is Void-of-course until 7:08 am PT/10:08 am ET this morning before it moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.  Everybody is into getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done. It’s all about the proper attitude and appropriate emotional expression.  Get your work done, then let your hair down.  The Moon favors innovation and creative thinking today as it has a good relationship with Venus and with Uranus.

The Moon also squares the Sun today and that means that we have reached the “Crisis of Consciousness” part of the lunar cycle. We are faced with the inner shifts that need to take place in order for us to complete our New Moon intentions.  Let go of fear, resistance to change and limiting thinking and you can soar!

Venus sextile Uranus – This combination might make it difficult for you to stay focused on work today as required by the Moon in Capricorn.  In that case, you might feel yourself counting down the moments until you can get out of the office and into party mode.  That would be the best way to utilize this energy.  Work where appropriate and play where/when appropriate!  Or mix the two if that seems like a viable option.

You might also attract new friends under this influence, and they may be people who have a revolutionary effect upon you – changing your outlook, attitude or life in some interesting way.  Everyone seems interesting and interested.

Thursday, March 28, 2019 –  Mercury Direct Today

Early this morning Mercury, planet of Communication, the Mind and Transportation, Thankful Thursdayleaves retrograde for direct motion. We can all breathe a sigh of relief – except we still have the “retroshade” to deal with for a few more weeks.  The messenger planet has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5 reminding us of our Spiritual, Intuitive and Esoteric connections.  Now with Mercury moving forward we can take the lessons and revelations that we discovered about ourselves out into the world.  It’s now the time to demonstrate your as the embodiment of Spirit.  When your mind forgets it’s connection, try asking the question, “What if ___________?”  For instance, What if I am the creator of my reality and can change my life positively? or What if we can live in a world of peace and harmony?  This evokes “allowing” energy and turns the mind toward more positive territory.  Perfect for taking Mercury’s retrograde lessons out to the world you live in!

The Moon is in Capricorn all day, and she is making good connections to Mercury & Neptune.  You might remember that on Monday these two (Mercury & Neptune) were in a conjunction and our imagination and creativity were stimulated.  Now is the time to take those ideas and turn them into concrete format.  Make a plan and execute the plan.  Later in the day the Moon conjuncts Saturn conferring focus, concentration and determination to our projects.

Friday, March 29, 2019

Friday panda

The Moon sits in Capricorn for most of the day today as it conjuncts Pluto, trines Mars and squares Uranus.  The day can alternate between powerful, confrontational, unpredictable and back again, with many possibilities in between!  By the end of today, you will be so ready for the weekend!

It’s not that it is a bad day or anything.  It is just demanding of our time and attention.  We might feel like pushing the river, when of course that might blow up in our faces.  There is strength and high energy available today.  And, as long as we aren’t frustrated or angry, we can put that to good use in getting things done.  If frustration/anger builds up today, release it through physical activity.  And Uranus adds an element of surprise and unpredictability to the day, so be ready for anything!

Mars will be sitting at 29 Taurus as he prepares to move into Gemini on Saturday/Sunday.  Pay attention to what is ending, what is in process of completion and what possibilities are opening up for you.  Prepare for an energetic shift in your ability to take action and move forward.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius playfully engages the Sun in doing things in new, creative, innovative, and unexpected ways.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway. Situations beginning now will be cooperative and helpful to you as they progress. A general atmosphere of getting along together prevails and will continue to if you just go with the flow.

Sunday, March 31, 2019

Late last evening on the West Coast and early this morning in the East, Mars made its move out of Taurus and into Gemini and changes the energy vibe for all of us.  While in Taurus our forward momentum was slowed down as we were having to be more deliberate in the execution of our plans.  After Mars being in Aries from January into early February, you might have felt stuck or stymied in getting what you wanted.  Well that changes now as Mars in Gemini is quick witted, quick to take action, and changeable.

While Mars is in Gemini we can become interested in many things, and dabble a bit with the new and unique.  We are more versatile and flexible, but also tend to lose focus or get bored easily.  We have to watch out for scattering our energy – this can be especially exacerbated as this is a Universal Year 3 where the natural tendency is to want to expand and explore, yet we can find ourselves scattered.

How do you deal with all this quixotic energy?  Make lists, start your day in meditation, if you feel yourself becoming unfocused or scattered, take a break and move your body, make a commitment to yourself to get what you have to do done before you move onto other things, and finally, be good to yourself if you end up straying – you might just stumble onto something wonderful for use later.

That’s it for the week everyone!  Not too bad, right?  Take care & enjoy …

Have a stellar week,

Janet Hickox, Living Astrology

Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast

February 25 – March 3, 2019

Humming Bird

 

A sort of quiet characterizes this week as most of the planets have already made contacts to one another in the preceding two weeks.  That doesn’t mean that there are not opportunities or challenges this week, but rather we experience the continuation or solution of issues that came up earlier.

The Moon this week moves through Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius highlighting the part of the Zodiac we think of as relationships we have with the outer world.

Don’t forget that we are in the shadow of Mercury retrograde, so don’t be surprised or upset if things seem to take longer to accomplish right now, or if there are reversals and re-do’s in your life.  You can help yourself tremendously if you slow down and take your time doing things.

There are a few big news type events, which I will detail further into this post –

  • Venus moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, while in a square (challenge) with Uranus in Aries.
  • The Sun in Pisces sextiles Mars in Taurus
  • The Sun & Moon square one another in their monthly dance that brings us a “Crisis in Consciousness.”

The Human Design week takes us into interesting territory as well.  The Sun moves into the Gate 37- Harmony, which is about creating positive Family & Community Alchemy, Friendships and Equality.  The Earth at Gate 40- Aloneness, which challenges us as individuals to love our “aloneness” but not to the exclusion of community.  There is so much for us to learn from these two gates that link the Solar Plexus to the Will Center:  force vs. will, equality and balance, work vs. relaxation.  I could do an entire post or workshop just on the ramifications of the evolution going on in these two gates.

Let’s take a look at the day by day this week:

monday (3)

Monday, February 25, 2019

We begin the work week with the Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, meaning it won’t be until later in the day where the energy picks up and we can see results.  Don’t beat yourself up trying to force things to get done, you will just end up frustrated or upset.  Rather, wait until later in the day (after 1:20 pm PT/4:20 pm ET) to complete tasks from earlier in the day. When the Void is over, the Moon will be in Sagittarius and our attitude and outlook get a boost.

tuesday

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

The Moon is in Sagittarius all day today adding a dose of emotional optimism to the day.  This is a good thing, as the contacts the Moon makes today are challenges to both the Sun and Neptune.

Moon square Sun – This is what we call the time in the Moon cycle of “crisis in consciousness.”  In order to move forward with our New Moon intentions, we must deal with the internal dialogue, beliefs, or patterns that are preventing us from moving forward.  Only then will we see a new pattern emerging and establishing itself in our lives.

Moon square Neptune – You may be more sensitive today to other people’s moods, to the environment, and to the sights and sounds of daily life.  You may also be in a more dreamy state of mind, and that makes this a bad day to make big decisions.  Hold on until tomorrow, when the energy shifts to do anything of importance.

wednesday

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

The Moon is still in Sagittarius today, and we’re still feeling buoyed by optimism and a strong faith that everything is going to turn out well.  Added to that, today’s Sun sextile Mars, gives us energy, stamina and a positive attitude to do what is necessary to move forward.

Sun sextile Mars – The Sun is in creative & imaginative Pisces, while the planet Mars is in deliberate, “get-her-done” Taurus.  Together these two planets energetically push us to Manifest & Create and to do it according to a plan of action – yet leaving some wiggle room for creative insights!  We are also more self-assertive under a transit such as this, so there is a small warning to remember to be a team player and not insist on having your own way in all things.  Pisces is mutable (changeable) and Taurus is fixed – so we have to be able to work with both types of energy today.

Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter – The Moon conjunct Jupiter adds to our optimistic attitude today, but can cause us to overdo just about everything.  So take steps to do things in moderation, and proportional to what is possible for you on an energetic level – meaning your personal energy, finances, time, and physical energy and stamina.  

thursday

Thursday, February 28, 2019

While we slept, the Moon moved into serious and business-like Capricorn.  This is a day filled with the potential to get things done, and to be quite task-oriented about it.  Make your lists and check off items as you’re done and by the end of the day you will feel quite accomplished.  The Moon is also sextile the Sun today, so there is smoothness in your relationships and opportunities might arise today from unexpected places.  Be open to receive.

March-LionLamb

Friday, March 1, 2019

Happy March Everyone!  You know they say that if March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb…or at least that’s weather lore about the beginning of this month.  I wonder if things are the same in the astrological landscape because March does come in as a bit of a lion for us this year.

Venus square Uranus Venus, at the end of her transit in Capricorn, finds herself tangled up in a challenging square to Uranus today.  Venus being Venus, things aren’t all bad … more like interesting than challenging really.  When Venus and Uranus come together this way there is experimentation, flirting, and excitement.  Sometimes though, there can be triggers to conflict and fighting.  The trick is to not make mountains out of molehills.  Keep perspective with all your relationships.

Also – since Venus rules money, watch impulse buying!  Make sure that if you are buying something big, that it has real value to you, and that it isn’t just a momentary whim!

Venus ingress Aquarius – I just used a new astrological term for you – Ingress – an ingress is just a fancy way of saying that a planet moved into a new sign.  Venus in this case, moves from Capricorn into Aquarius today and thus changes the interactions in our relationships, how we view our personal worth, and what we value.

While in Capricorn, Venus was wearing her business garb, but in Aquarius she is much more dressed down, funky and much more interested in friendly dynamics.  However, Aquarius can be aloof at times and come across as emotionally detached.  We will want to make sure to be kind, open, honest and transparent with everyone in our lives right now.  If you’re not feeling the emotional connection to someone in the moment, don’t force yourself to be something you’re not.  Instead, value and honor each other for your differences, as that builds the unique tapestry of the world.

5

Saturday, March 2, 2019 

Today the Moon transitions from Capricorn and into Aquarius midday moving us into more friendly and sociable territory.  For the most part, the energy of the day is good for getting together with friends or family and having fun.  Later in the day, the Moon meets up with Venus in early Aquarius, and here we have another warning about spending money more cautiously – especially if you are on a budget!  Whether it is impulse buying or overindulging, you could be tempted to overdo any number of things – spending money, eating or drinking too much, or even physical exertion. Just keep everything proportional to what is available to you energetically, and you will be fine!

Sunday, March 3, 2019

Moon square MarsToday you want to watch out for emotional irritability and irritation.  While this is not a good day to repress anger or upset, it is not a good day to explode outward at others either.  Instead, engage in positive ways of expressing yourself – exercise, writing in a journal, hiking, or whatever it is that eases that frustration you feel.  You may also be on the receiving end of someone else’s anger or upset today.  Be ready to walk away or count to 10 before you react.  It will save you from creating a huge response to something that was just a fleeting irritation.

That’s it for the Astrology for the week ahead.  I wish you all a stellar week!

Love, Janet

While the last couple of weeks in 2018 were fairly calm, the first week of 2019 is all about stirring things up.  It starts with Mars moving into Aries (the sign it rules) and the yellow caution sign turns green!  As we continue through the week, the Sun conjuncts Saturn setting the tone for their interaction over the year, we experience the first 2019 Solar Eclipse at 15 Capricorn, and the last planet in retrograde, Uranus, turns direct!  We have many indications that it is time to move forward!  And we are definitely ready, willing and able!  Let’s take a deeper look:
Monday, 12/31/18 – The Moon in Scorpio today merges deep emotional and intuitive energy with practical, simple and systematic actions.  We can play the long game now, letting the energy build up and then taking action in accordance to what shows up for us – no need to push!
Mars, planet of action and forward motion, has spent the last few weeks in the sign of Pisces and we felt like we were slogging through water.  Well no more! This evening Mars moves into Aries, the sign it rules, and action is restored.  The urge to act becomes stronger for some time, and often the actions come too quickly and precipitously, so be prepared for rash moves and subsequent retractions or re-directions. Be cautious not to be swept along unless you really mean to follow through and know what you’re doing. If you do, however, the tide is with you.
Best Action:  It’s New Year’s Eve – enjoy the holiday, reflect on the old year passing, and dream of what 2019 may bring.  Even though the engines are revving up, wait for the correct opportunities for you!
2019
Tuesday, 01-01-2019 –   Happy New Year !!  Today the Moon in Scorpio hangs with Pluto & Venus evoking our passions and emotional connections to one another.  We want to get along and create win-win situations in our lives moving forward.  Charm abounds and an atmosphere of love and desire allows for all sorts of pleasantries and can provide the foundations of more like it to come, if you go for it now. Starting something new today can bring the start of great friendships, creative projects, and achievements that bring both wealth and love.
The most important aspect of the day occurs late evening (in PT, early next morning in ET) when the Sun conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn.  This marks a time of altering our life course and setting goals – sounds a lot like New Year’s resolutions, yes?  Spend some time now in accessing what your desires are for the upcoming year, and then determining whether or not you are in alignment with your actions.
Best Action:  Take some time for self-reflection, write down goals & desires, and create space in your life for win-wins!
Wednesday, 1-2-19 – Today the Moon in Sagittarius trines Mars in Aries.  The engines are revved up, and the we have the green flag!  There is an excitement to the day as we engage ourselves in a new year with new possibilities.  Power and strength are our allies now, and we feel like we can accomplish anything!  With the Moon in Sagittarius we are optimistic and feel the need for honesty in all we do.  Just remember to keep a reign on your words.  No one wants to be at the receiving end of self-righteousness or blunt communication.  Stop, think, then speak so no one gets their feelings hurt.
Best Action:  Take action!  We have waited for this energy for a long time, and now we have it!  Just be sure to take care in what it is you do.  Follow your Type, Strategy & Authority to make the best decisions for YOU.
Thursday, 1-3-19 – The Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius today.  Our feelings of optimism and our actions are in harmony.  You could say that our Hearts & Minds are aligned right now.  Take advantage of the day.  About the only caution is to make sure you are being proportional in everything you do.  Don’t let your optimism and high energy get you into trouble later – keep an eye to sustainability and stewardship – in your energy, time, and money.
One small bump in the day comes when the Moon squares Neptune.  Feelings and internal visions can get muddled, and emotional miscommunication, either unintended or on purpose, may get in the way.  Be cautious in making long-term commitments – don’t get carried away!
Best Action:  Use the day’s feel good energy to take action on your goals and plans, but be cautious about making any long-term commitments not in alignment with those plans.  Stay true to YOU!

The Weekend 
Friday, 1-4-19 – Today both the Moon and Mercury move into Capricorn.  Everybody is getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done – especially as this is the gateway to the weekend. Linear thinking is favored over emotional reactions.  This is a great time to gain clarity in your life goals, making contacts and committing to high standards of behavior.  Be watchful for becoming too serious or rigid in your thinking.
The Moon is closing in on a conjunction to the Sun in Capricorn i.e. a New Moon Solar Eclipse.  So while today is great for thinking and developing plans, hold off on taking a new actions until after tomorrow’s New Moon.
Best Action:   Clear thinking without emotional attachment is favored today.  Make plans for your future that are grounded in reality through taking actionable steps.  Just wait to take those steps until after the new moon.
Saturday, 1-5-19   –  New Moon-Solar Eclipse in Capricorn today
When new year’s resolutions are based on fact, they are not resolutions anymore, but
projections. So get a realistic perspective and make that your prospective and you’ll be ahead of the game.
It’s time for the new, but the new that you know and can rely upon. A small, firm start is twice as good as a big, false one that has to be redone from scratch. Once you have your foot in the door, you can bust it down with the next push. It feels compulsory to do something right now, but the choice of action is up to you. This month, let it grow out of your experience, not your speculations, however fertile they may be.
Best Action:  Set solid, achievable goals/intentions that create incremental growth – no big splashy actions needed to get where you want to be!
Sunday, 1-6-19 –    Uranus Turns Direct at 28 Aries
Uranus moving forward signals a time of NO RETROGRADE planets!  YES!  Throughout 2018 we were doing a lot of inner work as planets were retrograde.  At one point in the Summer of 2018, there were 7 planets retrograde at one time!  Whew!  Finally we are all systems go, and full-steam ahead.  We won’t have another retrograde planet until March when Mercury changes directions.  But for now, we have the go-ahead from the Universe to take action and move forward demonstrating all the integration we have done.
There is one catch though – when Uranus turns Direct there can be sudden surprises, changes, explosions, excitement, upsets in the world and sometimes even in our personal lives.  Uranus did retrograde backward into Aries which gave us the Japanese earthquake & tsunami, the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, the Arab Spring, the Occupy movement, the Trump presidency in the USA, #metoo, and many other revolutionary and earth-shaking experiences.  Expect that there may be one or two more surprises for us as Uranus winds down this Aries transit finally moving into Taurus in March for the next 7 years.
Best Action:  Be open-minded and be prepared to take action when opportunity knocks!
Have a great week!

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!

Astrology-Human Design Nov 5-11, 2018

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
