Weekly Astrology Aug 19-25, 2019

Two more bodies move into Virgo this week – Venus and the Sun.  We’re working to perfect something, and it is all part of the Virgo experience.  While the planets were piled up in Leo we were in very creative energy.  That creative energy must now find an outlet into the “real” world, and Virgo is just the sign to help us make that happen.  Get ready to get to work!

August 19-25, 2019    More Planets Move Into Virgo 

Two more bodies move into Virgo this week – Venus and the Sun.  We’re working to perfect something, and it is all part of the Virgo experience.  While the planets were piled up in Leo we were in very creative energy.  That creative energy must now find an outlet into the “real” world, and Virgo is just the sign to help us make that happen.  Get ready to get to work!

Monday & Tuesday, August 19-20, 2019

We begin the work week with the Moon in Aries.  Today may be a day for new beginnings or building of momentum toward something.  Watch out for aggressive attitudes – either your own or someone else’s.  This is not a good day to pick a fight with anyone! Engage your personal authority and be responsible for yourself – thoughts, words and deeds!

Remember Aries is one of the signs that when the Moon moves through it can trigger our Capricorn trio, Saturn, South Node and Pluto.  There may be more to experience in the break down and regeneration of something in your life.  Be willing to work through it and engage a wider perspective.

Monday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Choosing

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

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

Tuesday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  6-Exploring

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

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

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

The Moon moved into Taurus very early this morning after a 20 minute Void-of-course.  That puts the Moon in a trine or positive flow with both the feminine and masculine principles (Venus & Mars).  We may feel more balanced today, and able to act from a place of equilibrium.  Later in the day, the Moon will conjunct Uranus, perhaps giving us a surprise or two.  Not all surprises are negative, maybe something very nice will pop up in your world for you today!

Venus into Virgo – August 21 to September 14.  With Venus in Virgo we value the down to Earth and practical, both in expressions of love and in what we choose to buy.  Venus rules are relationships, values and money and in Virgo we want to be sure that there is a useful reason for everything we do.  Watch out for being picky and overly critical of those around you.

Mercury (in Leo) trine Jupiter (in Sagittarius) – When these two planets meet up in Fire energy there is expansion into the creative, expressive, and spiritual.  Mercury rules the mind and communication, while Jupiter rules expansion and our Spiritual nature.  This combination may bring us good news, optimism and the desire to socialize.

Wednesday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  7-Healing

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

Sunflower

Thursday, August 22, 2019

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

Thursday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8- Seeing

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

Sunflower

Friday, August 23, 2019

The Sun moves into Virgo early today adding a 3rd party to the building stellium in that sign.  The Sun in Virgo is organized, earthy and detail-oriented.  The focus turns to our work environment, the path of sharing our gifts and talents (service) and the routines we are in. We are also more concerned with health and the purity of the foods we eat and the water we drink.  Sun sign Virgo can be analytical and think critically.  We want to be careful about being overly picky, critical of others or being too much of a perfectionist.

Also today, the Moon moves into chatty Gemini.  When the Moon is in Gemini we are more quick-witted, curious and sociable.  We can also become easily scattered and lose focus with the number of ideas and thoughts we have in our heads.

The Moon in Gemini challenges the Sun (Crisis of Consciousness), Venus and Mars in Virgo.  Virgo wants the details, and Gemini prefers to leave them out in favor of flexibility.  Gemini is fickle, and Virgo is stable.  How did the two of these signs get linked by the same planet – Mercury – when they are so different in their approach to the use of the mind and communication.  That’s a great question for another day’s tale!  Just know that today you may feel torn between depth and superficiality.

Friday – Pleiadian Earth Energy:  9-Intuiting

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

Weekend

Saturday, August 24, 2019  

The Moon is in Gemini all day today opposing Jupiter and squaring Neptune.  Today is likely not a great day to make big decisions, but it would be good for just having some fun!

Venus conjunct Mars – The astrological lovers meet today!  Venus and Mars together make the ideal partners for love, romance and socializing with friends.  There is also a raw sensual and sexual energy in the air today that generates magnetism – drawing couples together.  We can also find satisfaction in creative endeavors.  It’s a good time to start a project that brings both the physical and the emotional together.

Saturday’s Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Evolving

The Universal energy of 10 is Manifesting energy.  This is a day for building upon what we have learned and manifesting from our previous work.  It can be a challenging day if we have ignored our work up to this point.  The Earth Energy of Evolving (Caban in Mayan) shows us new possibilities as our boundaries change.  Don’t be disappointed if plans change or fall apart today.  All is well and will be well.

Sunday, August 25, 2019    

We end the weekend with the Moon in Gemini transitioning to Cancer in the early evening.  Likely it’s been a socializing and energizing type of weekend.  Now with the Moon’s move into Cancer, we bring in an emotional element to start the next week with.

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

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

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

Love,

Janet

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

Welcome to the Month of April 

Astrology Information to Get You Through the Week – April 1-7

Here we are in the first week of April – Already!!  Wow- where does the time go? We begin the week with April Fool’s Day.  What tricks or pranks will you fall for this week – all in the name of fun 🙂

The energy of the week features Mercury conjunct Neptune again (remember last week they were also conjunct when Mercury was retrograde), and the New Moon, and that’s pretty much the story for the entire week.  There isn’t the extremes of last week’s change energy, so all in all this is a week to go with the flow.

Let’s break it down by the days:

April Fool's Day Monday, April 1, 2019

Happy April Fool’s Day.  Do you know the origins of this day?  April Fool’s is linked to the time when the Julian calendar gave way to the Gregorian calendar.  People who forgot the change and celebrated New Year’s on April 1 (where it used to be celebrated in the Julian Calendar) were made fun of.  This is only one story of the origins of the day.  You can find out more information in this article – HERE

Today’s astrology is very mild.  The Moon is in Aquarius early in the day and shifts this morning into Pisces.  The next few days are filled with the shifting sands of emotions and the high side for us is that we are more compassionate, intuitive and forgiving.  This doesn’t make for substantial decision-making prowess however, so be gentle when it comes to trying to make big decisions.  You will need more time for clarity before you really know what to choose.

Human Design Notes for the day:

Venus, in Human Design Astrology, represents our relationships, and she moves into the Gate 37-Harmony today.  Gate 37 is on the Emotional Solar Plexus center and for the next few days we are more inclined to equality, tenderness and creating harmony with one another.  In the lower frequency of the the Gate 37, we find cruelty and using power against one another.  Be kind, be generous, be compassionate, be loving.

Tuesday, April 2, 2019 Tuesday

Today the planet Mercury moves to conjunct Neptune in Pisces.  Last week week we had the same transit when Mercury in retrograde was conjunct Neptune.  Now Mercury is moving forward and has met up again with the planet of Spirituality, Mysticism and Intuition to deliver yet more messages from our higher selves.  This is a great day for meditation, contemplation or engaging in your Spiritual practice.  Choose to tap into the etheric realm for guidance and direction.

Human Design Notes for Today: 

Mercury now moves into the Gate 22 – Grace today and sits with Neptune.  Venus just recently left this gate so we are seeing quite a bit of focus on the information held in this gate.  Last Friday in the MetaCafe, I spent a bit of time talking about the energy at this gate and what it is leading us to.  Here’s a link to the video for that show:

Friday MetaCafe on Neptune at Gate 22

The Gate 22 is important because it is holding the key to our involution.  Think of involution as the inner changes we are making as we evolve as human beings.  Involution is the process of our embodying more and more of our Divinity.  It is ongoing, and as planets like Mercury (communication) and Neptune (Spiritual Nature) transit here, we are indeed changing from the inside out.

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

The Moon is in Pisces for most of the day today.  Before it transitions into Aries later this evening, we experience positive energy with Pluto and Jupiter.  For the most part the day is smooth.

Moon sextile Pluto – This transit arouses deep feelings and emotions within us.  We are more interested in the depth of things rather than just the superficial.  We are also more interested in the mysterious and mystical today.  We may have waken from dreams in the night that have a profound effect on us, as if the subconscious was speaking to us directly.

Moon square Jupiter – We feel generous, benevolent and spiritually oriented when the Moon squares Jupiter.  While you may feel very sure of your own beliefs, watch out for self-righteousness or smug arrogance in the face of other people’s beliefs.  There is enough room in this world for a diversity!

Thursday, April 4, 2019

 

Thankful ThursdayLast evening the Moon shifted from Pisces into Aries.  Events pick up pace for the next couple of days.  The challenge is to be quick, yet avoid being premature so you don’t have to do it all over again down the line.  Nevertheless, it can be a fresh breeze all around, awake with energy.

Adding to that, the only aspect for the day is the Moon sextile Mars, and overall, this adds to the energy potential of the day.  Today we have the capacity to work well with others or by ourselves.  We may feel like taking the initiative and be more self-reliant.  In communicating with other today, steer clear of attacking with your words, or stirring the pot unnecessarily.  If you have something to say, say it responsibly and that means without blaming others or shaming anyone.

Friday, April 5, 2019 Friday

New Moon in Aries – While you slept the New Moon occurred at 15 Aries.  The New Moon always offers up the new, whether it is a new journey, a new belief, a new pathway forward, or even a new relationship (and that can be with a person, a group, money, etc.)  This New Moon opens up a portal to success, but it is not assured as much as it is worked for.  Aries new moons open up all kinds of possibilities to be bold, courageous and take action where it was once stalled.

About the only downer to this New Moon is it is square to Saturn in Capricorn, which can make us feel a bit overwhelmed by the work ahead to get where we want to go.  The best bet here is to make a plan and break up it up into bite-sized pieces.  That way you feel encouraged each time you take a step.  Saturn rewards those that are willing to do the work!

Human Design Notes for the New Moon

The Sun, Moon combination (ie the New Moon) are at the Gate 51-Initiation in your Human Design chart.  The energy at this gate is one of awakening and/or agitating, depending upon how you personally view what is going on.  The high frequency of this Gate shocks us, initiates us into higher knowledge/higher self and sets us up on a pathway to becoming more than we ever thought possible.

The lower frequency in the Gate 51 can cause us to feel defeated and fearful by the chaos or turmoil going on around us.  Or we may become agitated and upset, leading us to feel victimized.  It boils down to choice – how do you choose to see the challenges and opportunities around you?

The Weekend

The Moon is in Taurus for the entire weekend.  The next couple of days can be solid launching ground for anything you choose to embark upon, especially if it’s down to earth to begin with. The atmosphere favors practical beauty and the grace of being in touch with nature itself.  Enjoy the simple and the elegant, leaving behind complexity and complications.

However it isn’t all peaches and cream this weekend.  There are a couple of things to watch out for.

Saturday, April 6, 2019 – Moon conjunct Uranus

Be careful of acting rashly or impulsively today.  You may be feeling a bit moody, and there are repercussions if you act first, think later.  You certainly do not want to get stuck with the results of reacting versus taking action.  Instead, use the energy of the day to do something different – go someplace you’ve never been, visit with someone you haven’t seen in awhile or enjoy movie, museum or activity that you wouldn’t normally think you would like.  You might be surprised today in good ways, when you step out of a rut.

Sunday, April 7, 2019 – Mercury sextile Saturn

Today you can work diligently and carefully on any number of projects.  You have the mental acuity, focus and concentration to get things done.  Don’t try to focus on the big picture today as much as on the details of something.  This transit favors the minutia.  Don’t get carried away today with being too serious either – get out and have some fun!

So, all in all, not too bad of a week.  I’ll be leaving on Friday for a cruise in the Caribbean with psychic medium, John Holland and oracle card reader and designer, Colette Baron-Reid.  I’m really excited.  I’ll most likely be out of touch until April 14th when I get home.

Until then – have a Stellar week!

Blessings – Janet Hickox

 

What’s Up in the Stars Today?

The Astrological Turning Point

We are in the closing two weeks of the astrological year as we wind down Piscean energy and get ready for the Astrological New Year and Aries energy. 

Weekly Astrology Forecast – March 11-17, 2019

Living Astrology logo

We are in the closing two weeks of the astrological year as we wind down Piscean energy and get ready for the Astrological New Year and Aries energy.  You could say that we have reached a turning point, where we are exiting the old and entering the new!  That makes this week’s transits important for us in terms of completion and preparation for the new astrological year.  

The early part of the week is calm enough, but as we reach Wednesday through Sunday, the energy ramps up forcing us to move through transformation and plan for what comes next.  

Let’s break down the week:

Monday – March 11, 2019

Hello MondayWe begin the week with the Moon in Taurus in a positive flow with Neptune, Saturn & Pluto, but challenging Mars in a conjunction.  Mars is in receptive, feminine Taurus, not an especially loved place for him.  The Moon’s conjunction reminds Mars that emotions are an important expression of life, but controlling one’s temper is also valuable. 

Tuesday – March 12, 2019   Tuesday

The Moon is Void-of-course from 2:31 am PT until 8:48 am PT, and then moves into the sign of Gemini.  Words and messages abound for the next couple of days. It’s a good time for making new contacts and developing old ones, and for putting your finger on feelings that have been waiting for the right kind of expression. Say what you mean, but don’t be afraid to change it, refine it, on the fly.  Watch for a tendency to scatter your energy or lose focus.  

Wednesday – March 13, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Gemini all day so we continue the conversation, sharing of information and curiosity.  The Moon is in a beautiful angle today with both Venus & Neptune, giving us a lift spiritually and injecting love into the energy of the day. 

The Sun is empowered today by a sextile to Pluto and a square to Jupiter.  We have the stamina to follow through with our commitments.  The only thing to watch out for is the tendency to want to over-do things – follow this easy rule K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple & Sustainable.  (I bet you thought I was going to say something else!)

Thursday – March 14, 2019

The Moon is Void-of-course from 5:31 am to 2:49 pm PT as it prepares to shift out of Thankful ThursdayGemini and into Cancer. Expect feelings to get a little more intense for the next few days, as the Moon is in her own home sign.  Bottled-up emotions that people have been trying to keep a lid on can come spilling out. It’s hard to say what you mean (especially with Mercury retrograde) so it is best to be utterly sincere but not say too much that might set off hidden nerves or be seen as meddling.

Mars trine Saturn  – Slow & steady wins the race!  There is no need to be in a rush or hurry now.  Take deliberate action forward and see you goals come to life!

Mercury conjunct Sun – This signals that we are about 1/2 way through the Mercury Rx cycle.  Now Mercury picks up his marching orders from the Sun, compelling us all to fix what needs to be fixed, and then be ready in the coming weeks to soar.  Don’t be concerned if a bit of crisis or turbulence accompanies this time.  It will all sort itself out!

Friday, March 15, 2019

FridayThe Moon in Cancer trines Neptune and opposes Saturn today.  We must be grounded in our Spiritual selves in order to manage the changing currents of the day.  Your intuition is high today, and choosing to listen will be a Godsend for you.  At times today, the energy may turn melancholy or low – don’t be alarmed, it’s just temporary. 

Mercury square Jupiter – Suddenly, the best laid plans are turned upside down, mostly because there are nonworking components that simply keep popping up.  Basically, it’s a time for debugging and finessing new operations and upcoming launches into shape. A better time for sorting things out than for starting anew.

Weekend blog

Saturday, March 16, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from 11:03 am PT to 5:57 pm PT today, and that means we are not really in a position to start something new or get a lot done.  If you must get something done today, do it early.  All of the Moon’s most juicy contacts happen before its VOC – high energy, empowered feelings, upbeat conversation, and possible unexpected opportunities (or conflict too….just sayin…) are all possible.     

After 5:57 pm PT, the Moon will move into the sign of Leo.  If you follow the flow for the next couple of days, creative and loving feelings can make for an almost party atmosphere.  Make a breakout, or just let the rising tide carry you along.  Be in it for the fun, play and excitement! 

Sunday, March 17, 2019 

St. Patrick's Day CloverHappy St. Patrick’s Day everyone & it should be a wonderful day with the Moon in Leo accentuating a fun and playful atmosphere, and the Moon literally not making anyone unhappy at all today!  There is one transit that we need to be aware of. 

Mercury Rx sextile Mars – Making the most of of procedures that worked in the past, turns into productive and successful ventures.  When things are in order, all runs so smoothly that you hardly notice how well it’s going. It might be a time to take a second look at what it takes to get it right so you can better maintain your path forward. 

Here’s wishing you all a stellar week!

Blessings,

Janet Hickox

 

 

 

Weekly Astrology & Human Design

Astrology & Human Design

Feb. 11-17, 2019

We have a bit of a wild week developing as Mars and Uranus are closing in for their conjunction in Aries at the same time the Moon and Sun are reaching their first quarter square.  Tuesday 2/12/19 is the “bulls-eye” day for this week’s energy.

When Mars and Uranus come together we have combustion with a dose of unexpectedness.  And, when the Moon squares the Sun it is called the “Crisis of Action” where we must confront the outer world circumstances that appear to block our forward progress from our intentions set at the New Moon 1 week prior.

Our Human Design week begins with the Sun at 49-Revolution and the Earth at Gate 4-Answers.  Here we have a bit of the fuel that can spark the Mars/Uranus transformation and the Crisis of Action of the Moon this week.  Likely this is not going to be a quiet one – but likely a bit wild, a little unpredictable, and possibly even exciting.

Here’s a rundown of what we can expect for the upcoming week:

monday (3)

Monday, February 11, 2019

The Moon spends the day in Taurus and favors sensibility, practical beauty, and the grace of being in touch with nature itself. Simplicity works, traditional fare is ever elegant.

The planet Mercury is giving us a sneak peek into next week’s placement of the Sun at Gate 55-Abundance.  Wherever Mercury precedes the Sun, the seeds of new energy are being planted.  The seeds are abundance and prosperity.  How will you receive yours?  That will be answered with the Full Moon the week of February 19 – so stay tuned, but also open up and be receptive.

Moon Trine Venus

Knowing what you want and moving on to get it is the opportunity of the day, and what you fall into now may be just the chance you’ve been waiting for. Sharing goals and deciding to mutually go for it will be the best of all possible worlds for everybody, with a minimum of conflict resulting later.

Moon Sextile Neptune

When the Moon and Neptune meet up in this way, we have easy access to both intuition and imagination and the possible practical application of both.  Let your spirit soar to dreamy places, then bring your ideas into reality.

tuesday

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Moon Square Sun – 1st Quarter Moon – Crisis of Action
Uncertainty and shifting grounds can mark the day’s outcomes, and confidence may retreat in the face of a challenge. Confrontation is the wrong game to play, but pulling out entirely is equally unsuitable. Make judicious compromise now and the resulting situation will improve,but don’t chase diminishing returns.

Mars Conjunct Uranus  
A general tendency to fire off too fast, shoot from the hip and miss, and boil over
unpredictably marks this as a very volatile time. Accidents abound, tempers flare, and sudden moves bring cause for regret. Look both ways crossing the street and avoid potentially explosive situations — and don’t fly off the handle yourself.

wednesday

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

The Moon is in Taurus until 1:33 am PT/4:33 am ET and then moves into Gemini.  We’re shifting from the practical, down-to-Earth to the communicative and curious.  Words abound and messages fly for the next couple of days.  It’s a good time for making new contacts and developing old ones, and for putting your finger on feelings that have been waiting the right kind of expression. Say what you mean, but don’t be afraid to change it, refine it, on the fly.

Moon square Mercury

This is probably a good time for all parties to back off a bit and make sure that what looks like a great idea isn’t actually a hidden misunderstanding. What feels right may be impractical or misleading, so a second look is in order to avoid having to re-position later.  Don’t believe all you hear, or all you say.

 

Valentine's Day

Thursday, February 14, 2019

The lovebirds – Venus & Mars – are both in Earth signs – it’s all about the romantic and the practical right now.  Venus in Capricorn is wearing her business garb and guys your best route to her heart is through being direct.  Have a plan for the evening and be on time!  Mars moves into Taurus today, girls your way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so feed him wonderful foods and desserts!

Since the beginning of the year Mars, planet of action, has been in Aries a sign he rules.  We were moving forward at a good pace.  Now as Mars moves into Taurus today actions become of necessity more deliberate and slow.  This can feel a bit frustrating to us, but stick with the pace presented to you and you will be able to reap the benefits of slowing down and being more deliberate.

Today the Sun and Earth shift into new gates in your Human Design.  The Sun is now at Gate 30-Desire and the Earth at Gate 29-Commitment.  The Earth challenges us to be careful what we are committing our energies to.  If we jump to quickly, we may find ourselves committed to something only halfheartedly.  This is our week to move our authentic desires towards action and then commit.  Here are my usual words of caution – Use your Type, Strategy & Authority to make correct decisions for YOU.  If you have no idea what I am talking about, then get your FREE Human Design Chart & Report.

Moon Opposing Jupiter

Today is a feel good day and about the only problem is if you overdo anything.  We are not overly self-disciplined during this transit and we can easily think we can do more, eat more, drink more, spend more than is good for us.  Just stay within your means today.  We are definitely more sociable on a day like today.  This is a great transit to have for Valentine’s Day as long as we can all stay within boundaries.

5

Friday, February 15, 2019

This morning the Moon moves into Cancer.  Expect feelings to get a little more intense for the next few days, especially when there may be bottled up emotions that haven’t been expressed. The emotional energy makes it hard to say what you mean so be careful to be sincere but not confrontational. We may feel more nurturing now, just don’t let it become smothering.

Moon Sextile Mars

The Moon and Mars are in a great relationship today as long as you don’t try to push things to make them happen.  Maybe try sitting back and letting the circumstances around you dictate the pace that you work with during the day.  Otherwise, you may end the day frustrated and feeling like you didn’t anything accomplished.

Saturday, February 16, 2019

Moon opposing Venus, Saturn & Pluto

Today may be a bit of a difficult day as the Moon is in challenging aspect to first Venus, then Saturn, then Pluto all in Capricorn.

Feelings and desires may tug and roil around you, and trying to create an even balance may be elusive. The environment may be alternating hot & cold, so it is best to wait to make commitments until tomorrow or next week – waiting for clarity serves you best today.  Patience now saves you headaches later.  Apply this to relationships, commitments to time, money or your energy.

Sunday, February 17, 2019

The Moon transitions out of Cancer and into Leo this morning.  For the next few days it’s all about fun and creativity.  It’s time to make a breakthrough and let your genius shine outward to the world.

Venus sextile Neptune

Simplicity, love and good taste is what today is all about.  No need to be flaunting anything – it all falls into place beautifully.  Embrace love as a higher power.

Sun sextile Uranus

Creativity, surprises, breakthroughs, flashes of insight and more – that’s what this aspect brings.  Be ready to rock the world with your brilliance!  This energy follows us into Monday as well.  Enjoy!

Here’s hoping everyone has a stellar week!

Love, Janet Hickox

 

Weekly Astrology Forecast Dec. 17-23

This week the Moon moves through Aries, Taurus, Gemini & Cancer.  The Moon, representing our emotions and deeper soul being, is moving through the first 4 signs of the Zodiac this week taking us deeper into self-awareness, self-worth, speaking our truth, and nurturing.   There are a few things for us to be watchful about, but for the most part we have a nice week on tap going into the Christmas holiday. 

Week of December 17-23, 2018

Saturday 12/22:     Moon in Gemini/Cancer, Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn, sextile Uranus

Sunday 12/23:       Moon in Cancer opposing Saturn, trine Neptune & Venus, opposing Pluto

This week the Moon moves through Aries, Taurus, Gemini & Cancer.  The Moon, representing our emotions and deeper soul being, is moving through the first 4 signs of the Zodiac this week taking us deeper into self-awareness, self-worth, speaking our truth, and nurturing.   There are a few things for us to be watchful about, but for the most part we have a nice week on tap going into the Christmas holiday.  Let’s break it down:

Monday, 12/17/18 – The Moon begins the week in Aries squaring powerhouse Pluto.  There may be some undercurrents moving through us where we want to use repeated force to get something done.  We have learned that lesson haven’t we?  Force is a shadow energy related to impatience.  Be patient, and allow things to be revealed, or to happen for you.

The Moon in positive relationship to the Sun today adds to a feeling of confidence and serves us well when pathways open up in front of us.  Contacts made now will serve to benefit you now and in the future – especially when the connections “feels” right.

Late this evening and into tomorrow, the Moon meets up with the great awakener, Uranus, so expect some sudden outbursts, fits of temper, or surprises in the outer world.  You may even find sudden revelations startle you into new opportunities.  Keep your eyes open.

FYI – Venus moves into new territory today for the first time since September 2, 2018 when she entered her retrograde zone.  Where we have seen money issues, or problems in living from our values, or relationship problems rearing their ugly heads in our lives, we are about to be able to move forward and leave the old behind!  Be prepared for prosperity, living from the heart & having fantastic relationships!  Whoo Hoo!

Best Action: Remember that force is not a good way to get things done.  Be patient and be prepared for surprises today!

Tuesday, 12-18-18 –   While we slept, the Moon moved into Taurus.  The next couple of days are great for taking practical, down-to-Earth steps on your goals or in getting things done.  Elegant simplicity, beauty & tradition is favored.  The Moon and Saturn come together today in a very positive, mutually reassuring way.  If we are launching projects right now, stability and practicality are favored.

Later in the evening, the Moon & Venus are in opposition, and that means that feelings and desires may be roiling around you, stirring up and challenging your mind. Don’t jump into anything (relationships, spending large sums of money, or even changing your appearance) you are not sure of right now – wait until clarity comes tomorrow.  Follow your emotional self, which waits for clarity before taking action.  At this point, I usually say “sleep on it” and decide later.

Best Action:  Pare things down to simple, practical elegance. Today is NOT a great day to jump into or out of relationships, spend large sums of money, or change your appearance (like deciding purple spiked hair would be good- which you would likely hate tomorrow)

Season of Joy

Wednesday, 12-19-18 – The Moon in Taurus angles beautifully with Neptune today, giving us a Spiritual lift and making us feel more hopeful, and at ease with those around us.  And later in the day, the Moon and Pluto come together to add Faith in oneself and a sure self-confidence to the mix.  Not to be outdone, Mars and the Moon also come together to add an extra dose of energy, staying power and dynamism to the day.  All in all, this is a feel good day, when our connection to Spirit and to the Spirit of the season come together in a beautiful harmony.  Enjoy!

Best Action:  No need to push or pull at anything today.  Just enjoy the peace, love and joy the day brings.

Thursday, 12-20-18 – The Moon moves into Gemini at 6:35 am PT/9:35 am ET where, for the next couple of days, expression through thoughts, words and deeds takes center stage.  The Moon in Gemini is also sociable and entertaining.  Great energy to go into the last days of autumn with.  As the day wears on, the Gemini Moon moves into an inventive and original thinking relationship with the planet Uranus.  Gemini rules the lower calculating mind, and Uranus the higher innovative mind, so today you may be blessed with original thinking and new approaches to solving old problems!  Like a breath of fresh air, new ideas may be just a thought away!  The Moon is also opposing Gemini’s ruling planet, Mercury, today as well, so keep pen and paper handy to write down all those delicious ideas.  Since the energy is better for winding down than starting new things (we’re in the shadow of the full Moon) your ideas & revelations may be things to work on as we move into the New Year and new moon windows.

Later this evening, the Moon opposes Jupiter, so don’t get carried away with anything!  The Moon and Jupiter tend to lack discipline, so remember that too much of a good thing is as bad as not enough!

Best Action: Be prepared for unique and new ideas that require some time to bring into fruition.  Keep pen and paper handy so you don’t lose the idea in the rush of the holidays.

The Weekend 

Friday, 12-21-18 –   Happy Winter Solstice Today!  But, before we actually get to the Solstice, there are a few transits for us to deal with.  The Moon in Gemini begins the day in a challenging aspect to Neptune in Pisces.  This is not a day to make long-term commitments, as there are too many mixed signals coming to us from the mind, the emotions and our intuition.  Later this evening, clarity may be forth coming.

The planet Venus is in a lovely relationship to Neptune, which makes for creativity, dreaming up new ideas, romantic connections with our partners.  Just be aware that you may not be seeing your relationships clearly today, so enjoy the time together, but don’t make commitments while you’re not clear.  Have fun now, and maybe later you can see the relationship with more clarity.

Rounding out the early part of our day, the planet Mercury conjuncts Jupiter and we are filled with new plans, and if you find a really good one to latch onto, you may find that it takes you to success.  But … today isn’t the best day to lay out the details of a plan.  Just get down the concepts and the big picture of the idea.  Time will come in the next days/weeks for you to get all the juicy details.

Winter begins at 2:23 pm PT/5:23 pm ET when the Sun moves into Capricorn.  With the Moon still in Gemini, and the Sun in Capricorn, this evening is a bit serious.  It feels like our emotions, mind and actions are not in alignment, and you would be correct!  They are not!  Accept uncertainty for now as clarity and reality will set in soon.

Best Action: Be dreamy, be romantic, don’t be terribly serious about anything, and just know that the time is coming for us to engage reality and our goals.  Now is not that time.

Saturday, 12-22-18   – The Moon transitions from Gemini to Cancer this morning becoming full a short time later.  This is the Full “Wolf” Moon which occurs at 9:49 am PT/12:49 pm ET.  Expect that feelings and emotions will be a little more intense for the next few days as the Moon in Cancer is in the sign she rules, giving our emotions more outlets for expression.  But there is also a sort of sweet nostalgia for traditions from our past that is present for us right now.  We may find that we are really looking forward to spending the holiday with friends and family and reconnecting with good times from our past.  On the other hand, there can also be emotional gut checks for some, as the holidays may not always have been a source of happiness and cheer.  Be gentle with one another now as you really have no idea what emotional stuff lies in the depths of anyone’s life and experiences.

Best Action:  Compassion, and holding one’s own emotions and reactions in check.

Sunday, 12-23-18 –  The Moon is in Cancer today opposing Saturn which means that the environment is running hot and cold, and just as you think you’re warming up to someone, they can suddenly turn negative. Similarly there is a bit of ambivalence and non-clarity about what direction to take with projects, or whether or not to even take action.  So wait and be patient until we have more energy that supports taking action.

The Moon is also in a nice flow of energy today with Neptune and Venus.  We are intuitive, imaginative and given to flights of fancy later in today.  Listen to your gut because the emotional wave forms are confusing, and there is a dearth of mind energy to help us make decisions.  If you can put off making any big decisions, do it!  We may know what we want, but we are not sure of the direction to take to get it … so again … wait!  As late in the day the Moon opposes Pluto, patience will get you further than anything else!

Best Action:  Watch a movie, hang out with friends/family, play games, do anything but make big decisions or get involved in emotional battles with anyone.

Have a great week!

Your Thanksgiving Week Astrology Forecast

Astrology for the Week of November 19-25
Thanksgiving
 
Moon in Aries, Taurus, Gemini & Cancer
Mars square Jupiter
Sun into Sagittarius
Thanksgiving Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius
Neptune Direct
Sun conjunct Jupiter

 

We have a much smoother week ahead, with fewer major astrological transits happening!  And, as we in the USA are preparing to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, we take the time to reflect on what we are grateful for and for the bounty we each have in our lives. I am grateful for you my readers, listeners and clients, and my wish for you all is Peace, Love, Joy and Prosperity!    

 

The Moon this week moves from Aries, to Taurus, Gemini, & Cancer, including a Thanksgiving Full Moon in Gemini, and we end the week with the Moon in nurturing Cancer.  

 

We begin the work week with the Moon in industrious, and action-oriented Aries.  Until later Tuesday afternoon we must watch for conflicts or confrontations, maybe even emotional outbursts as the Moon (emotions) in Aries is sometimes a bit volatile.  Since we are headed into a holiday week in the USA, get important work done while you have the Moon’s energy in a sign of action.  Wednesday and Thursday (Thanksgiving Day in the USA) the Moon is in Taurus favoring the comfort foods and family atmosphere of the holiday.  Taurus loves the sensual delights of the aromas, tastes and experience of the holiday.  Later in the evening Thursday, the Moon shifts into Gemini, and just 90 minutes later culminates in the Full Moon at 1 Gemini/Sagittarius, which of course also means that the Sun has made a move during the day Thursday into the sign of Sagittarius as well! We go into Black Friday and Saturday with the Moon in Gemini which makes for great shopping energy, but since Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, is retrograde be sure you’re getting what you paid for and not being misled into a deal that is not really that great.  I would also watch for false advertising, or errors in advertised prices as communication (and advertising is communication) can easily get skewed.  Late Saturday evening the Moon moves into homebody, nurturing Cancer and we end the weekend likely wanting to be in the comfort of our own homes.

 

Monday the planet Mars (action) and Jupiter (growth & expansion) meet up in a challenging square to one another.  We have the energy and initiative to begin new projects, but we are a bit impulsive today.  Try to be strategic in what actions you take toward your goals.  Choose your battles wisely today as we can inadvertently trigger other people with our words or actions or we can be the ones triggered by others.  With the Moon also in Mars ruled Aries today, we can easily be provoked into expressing emotions unwisely.  Be calm, cool and collected. 

 

sagittariusThe Sun moves into Sagittarius early Thursday morning, heading for his rendezvous with Jupiter at week’s end.  The Sun & Jupiter together in Sagittarius – Spectacular for luck, generosity, optimism and … over-doing everything! The Sun in Sagittarius stimulates our more adventurous sides and we want excitement and are more interested in seeking knowledge.  Yet too much of a good thing is still not a good thing, and with Jupiter in the mix (the natural ruler of Sagittarius) we can definitely be overly confident, optimistic and exuberant.  We need to learn the lesson of being moderate, proportional and keeping our lives & resources in perspective.  This is an excellent time for pursuing spiritual understanding and expanding your worldview.     

 

The highlight of the week, the Full Moon in Gemini, occurs on Thanksgiving night at 9:39 pm PT/12:39 am ET (11-23).  This Full Moon features a Sun coming up to conjunct Jupiter, the Moon opposing Jupiter, both the Sun & Moon in positive relationship to Destiny & Karma (the North Node & South Nodes), and a smooth flow of energy between the two luminaries and Chiron (the wounded healer).  We’re feeling quite generous, giving, and optimistic with this Full Moon, as if the troubles of the world or our lives are behind us.  Spurring this feeling is Jupiter fully in Sagittarius this week, and the Sun/Moon in Sagittarius as well.  While I find that this optimism is a great thing, it can push us into commitments of time, money and resources beyond what is sustainable for us, so we must exercise caution in our spending.  Mercury in retrograde during this early part of the holiday season also tells us a bit about being somewhat conservative.  And if that isn’t enough, Saturn & Pluto both in Capricorn, but silent in this Full Moon (meaning neither Saturn nor Pluto make any connection to the Sun or Moon at the Full Moon), also are much more supportive of conservation than giving in to super extravagance.  It’s like they are the silent watchers, hoping that we have learned our lessons but ready to remind us should we go too far!  (let’s give them enough rope to hang themselves they conspire together to say 🙂)  The lesson:  Be loving, generous and giving, but within reason!     
 

 

The Weekend 
Friday –  The Moon in Gemini all day helps drive our search for bargains and deals, but you want to be cautious … Gemini’s ruler Mercury is in retrograde right now and we can easily fall prey to deals that end up not being deals at all!  Today favors conversation and socializing.  Have a good time, enjoy people and the hustle & bustle of the holidays.  But … stay sane & in your right mind.   
 
Saturday   – The Moon is in Gemini until late this evening or early tomorrow morning for those of you on the East Coast.  Today Neptune changes directions from retrograde to direct.  All in all, today is similar in energy to Friday, but with Neptune changing directions we can feel confused and maybe a little ungrounded which can be disconcerting and disorienting.  If you are out and about today, make sure you stay aware of your environment, and keep your mind on what you are doing.  We may find it harder to tune in to our intuition right now, so use caution in making decisions today. 
 
Sunday – The Moon in Cancer today positively loves home and family and everything about nurturing!  It’s a great day to cook for your loved ones, spend time together doing something you love, or even just staying at home playing games! Today the Sun & Jupiter are exactly conjunct and that adds an energy of generosity and joviality to any activity today.  Today begins the new Sun-Jupiter cycle attention to what is opening up for you today.  Watch for signs in your environment, your dreams, or ideas/inspirations because it may hold the seeds of what is to come for you in the coming year.  Most of all just enjoy the day and each others company.     
 
Have a blessed week! 
Janet
