Weekly Dimensional Astrology

The Week of July 8-14, 2019

While this week doesn’t include an eclipse or a planetary sign change, we still have plenty of action taking place in the heavens above – Mercury and Mars come together, the Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn, the South Node and Pluto, and the Moon beginning the week in Libra, challenges the Cancer and Capricorn planets. Okay, so it’s going to be an energetic week!

Let’s break it down:

Monday, July 8, 2019

MondayToday is a great day to express yourself creatively and with your special uniqueness as Venus, in a sextile to Uranus, stimulates our need for beauty and excitement. 

Mercury Rx and Mars also meet up today in Leo and where there is unexpressed frustration, we might see verbal battles erupt.  The best way to work through this is to recognize that your frustration is your own and isn’t meant to be “vomited” outward onto others.  We all know that everyone isn’t in the “know” like we are so it is possible to be on the receiving end of someone else’s frustration. 

The extraordinary potential of this though, is that we can finally voice to ourselves what we have dared not say!  For instance, “I’m tired of this job and I’m going to finally do what I want to do.” or “I’m going to start treating myself better and follow my heart’s desires.”  So many ways in which we can wake up now to what is “right” for us.  We will have another chance later this Summer when Mars and Mercury meet up again in Virgo. 

The Moon in Libra is also in a good relationship with Mars and Mercury, so there really is a high side to all this verbal energy – whether it is clearing the air or stating something profound.  Just make sure that you are being responsible with your words. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  2-Devoting    Accepting two opposite perspectives within a community, family or nation without getting stuck in inappropriate loyalties.  

Human Design Astrology:  The Sun moves into Gate 53-Starting Things while the Earth moves into Gate 54-Ambition.  Both of these gates are on the Root center, which is the center for Stress, Endurance, and Impulse energy.  The impulse energy for the week is about new beginnings and how they are connected to a goal, desire or ambition.   

If you really want to dig deeper, then look at the Gene Keys 53 and 54, where Superabundance & Ascension are the highest states of these two gates. 

Tuesday, July 9, 2019     

Another energetic day is on tap as the Sun opposes Saturn today (from Cancer to TuesdayCapricorn) while the Moon in Libra challenges the Sun, Saturn and Pluto.  

We are familiar with the Sun square Moon as this is our “Crisis of Action.”  Having come through the new moon window last week, we are now faced with a potential block to our new beginning.  We have to consciously choose what path to follow next. 

With the Sun opposing Saturn, we are asked to stand in our authority and live from our true authenticity.  We can also experience low energy as the weight of duty and responsibility may just feel burdensome to us right now.  Don’t worry as this soon will pass.  Maybe take a break today and so something fun or something that doesn’t require a lot of energy.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  3-Illuminating.  Today we are inspired to create new things or to think in new ways.  This is also a day to shine a light into the dark spaces.  Maybe what heaviness we feel from the Sun-Saturn opposition is really about how we are aligned to the light or not?  

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Hump DayWhile we slept, the Moon moved out of Libra and into Scorpio and the Sun moved into a trine with Neptune.  We are experiencing a bump up in the spiritual, psychic and intuitive energies today.  Don’t be surprised if you were having weird dreams, or if you feel suddenly tapped into Universal Consciousness.  Follow your inner knowing today.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  4-Choosing.  Focus on the foundations in your world today.  Build or rebuild in ways that are sustainable and strengthen.  The energy today is also good for healing, nurturing and settling differences.  

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Today could be an interesting day as Mars (planet of conflict and confrontation) squaresThankful Thursday (or challenges) Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and awakening.  Adding to that is the Moon in Scorpio, a sign ruled by both Mars and Pluto, and what you get is the potential for erratic behavior and rebelliousness.  Best to channel your energy in ways that are positive and uplifting, rather than to give into the urges of craziness and then have to face the piper tomorrow.  Exercise or physical activity is a great way to let off some steam.  Just be careful that you don’t overdo anything. 

This could also be a highly creative day.  Harness the energy to bust through any places where you have been stuck.  But watch for destructiveness vs. constructiveness. 

The potential also exists today for escalations in the world outside of us.  Expect rebellion and revolution – in both it’s negative and potentially positive expressions.  Grandstanding, narcissism, arrogance and lack of humility could also exacerbate tensions already apparent in the world around us. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Exploring.  Today is a day for surprises and unexpected things to occur that give us opportunities to change old patterns.  This is a great day for exploring, but watch for being rigid or too critical.  

Human Design Today:  Venus, planet of our relationships, values and finances moves into the Gate 39-Provocation.  Provocation serves a purpose – to wake us up!  Unfortunately we sometimes perceive these energies as an assault or affront to our personal lives.  Provocation is meant to move us from a “stuck” position to one of Freedom, as evidenced in the opposing Gate 55- which resonates to Freedom in the Gift and the Siddhic states. 

Friday, July 12, 2019 

FridayWe move into the end of the week with the Moon moving into Sagittarius, where adventure, exploration and seeking knowledge is important to us.  Today there is smooth energy between the Moon and Mercury and Mars.  Today comes as a relief to some of the more chaotic days earlier in the week.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  6-Healing.  Today is a great day for adventure and movement on all levels.  Engage in healing efforts – maybe traveling to the beach or other outdoor area to refresh yourself.  Watch for accepting too many responsibilities OR avoiding responsibilities.  

Saturday, July 13, 2019

The Moon in Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter today making it a feel great kind of day!  AboutSaturday meme the only thing we have to be aware of is not overdoing anything.  Too much of anything is not a good thing, so keep everything proportional and sustainable.  The Moon is also square Neptune today triggering some “fogginess” in our thinking and calculating.  Consequently, this is not the best day to make big decisions.  So instead, have fun, play and save big decisions for another day!  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  7-Seeing.  While today is not a good day to make decisions, our creative energies are working well!  New ideas abound today.  Just don’t try to take action on all of your ideas!  

Human Design Today:  The Sun moves into the Gate 62- Planning and the Earth into Gate 61-The Mystery.  The week ahead is one to be greeted with a Spirit of awe and wonder rather than anxiety and obsession with planning and details.  Enjoy the ride!

Sunday, July 14, 2019 

The Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn today creating the potential for power struggles born of jealousy and manipulation in yourself or in others.  Recognize these shadow energies within yourself before taking action in ways that are harmful.  Use the Sun’s fire energy to transmute the shadow and leave you empowered.  Not everyone in the outer world is so inclined to use these energies for the good however, so we may see expressions of the negative.  Instead of empowerment, we may see ways in which disempowerment and dominance play out. 

Interestingly this is a prelude to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday where the Moon will be in conjunction to Pluto.  Emotions will be high, and reactive tendencies hold sway rather than common sense.  Try to stay above the fray and not get too serious about world events. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Intuiting.  Connecting, communication and abundance are ours.  All we have to do is to tap into and recognize when it is right in front of us.  Reacting to the outer world is one of the shadows of the day.

Human Design today:  Mars moves into the Gate 33-Storyteller.  While Mars represents action and forward movement in Astrology, in Human Design it more represents our maturing process.  Maturing is related to our remembering the truth of who we are in this incarnation.  According to Richard Rudd in the Gene Keys, “There is no situation on Earth that cannot be used as a means to raise your frequency and open your heart to your inner Divinity.”  We are being moved to tell a new story, and it’s one of our remembering our truth and creating continued disinformation.  

So, while this isn’t necessarily a difficult week, there are some difficult transits, likely designed to prepare us for next week’s Lunar Eclipse.  Let go of what doesn’t serve you – the stories, the old emotions, grudges etc., and next week will be easy breezy!  

Blessings,

Chaotic, Yet Powerful Week Ahead

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

Astrology for the Week of May 13-19, 2019

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

Monday, May 13, 2019

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

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

Sun (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn)

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

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

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

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

Venus (Aries) sextile Mars (Gemini)

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

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

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

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

Venus in Taurus

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

Mars in Cancer

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

Mercury (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces)

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

Thursday, May 16, 2019

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

Mercury (Taurus) trine Saturn (Capricorn)

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

Friday, May 17, 2019

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

Mercury (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn) 

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

Weekend

Saturday, May 18, 2019

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

Venus (Taurus) conjunct Uranus (Taurus)

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

Full Moon at 28 Scorpio / Taurus 

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

Release – being stuck

Complete – your plans for financial abundance

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

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

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

Sunday, May 19, 2019

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

Many blessings for the Week Ahead,

Janet Hickox

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

Weekly Astrology Forecast February 18-24

Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast

February 18-24, 2019

 

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

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

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

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

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

monday (3)

Monday, February 18, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

tuesday

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

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

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

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

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

wednesday

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

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

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

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

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

thursday

Thursday, February 21, 2019

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

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

Moon in Libra 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saturday, February 23, 2019 

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

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

Sunday, February 24, 2019

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

Here’s wishing you all a stellar week!

Love, Janet

 

Happy New Year!

Astrology for the 1st Week of the New Year –

December 31 to January 6, 2019

 

Special Astro Reading
Special Price thru January 2019

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!
Janet

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
