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,

Mind Your Mind & Words This Week

Mercury is the Focus for the Week!

This week the planet Mercury (in Aries) is in focus as well as a New Moon in Taurus.  Mercury is known as the messenger planet.  He both receives and transmits information depending upon the relationship he is in at the moment with the other planets.  Be ready this week then for communication, ideas and information to flow to you and through you.

There is an exciting element to all of this communication as well, especially as we get to the end of the week and the New Moon in Taurus.  If you’ve been taking note of what Mercury is delivering, then the new beginning implied by this new Moon should be an easy one for you.  Taurus rules our values, finances, self-worth, and the practical, down-to-Earth expression of life.  The potential is that you can really make some headway on whatever it is you have been working on.  Just stay open, listen deeply, and let mind be guided by your inner voice.

Let’s break down the week day by day:

Monday, April 29, 2019 – 

Mondays on MetaCafeThe Moon in Pisces today opens up our intuitive and creative channels, and we begin the week in a quiet place.  Mondays with the Moon in Pisces are often the ones where we wish we had one more day to sleep in and be lazy.  But today, the Moon and Sun come together to create an ease and flow to the day.  Things may come together in miraculous and magical ways when we step back and allow.  What may the day bring you?  Relax and go with the flow and you just might find out!

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 – 

The Moon is in Pisces all day today and conjuncts Neptune, squares Mars, sextiles bothTues Saturn & Pluto, and squares Jupiter.  Sounds like a lot packed into one day doesn’t it? Added to this is Mercury sextile Mars – read as more busy!

While the Moon’s connections today are many, they seem to be tuning us in and refining our antenna, so to speak.  As this week has many Mercury connections (communication, the mind and more) this works to our advantage.  Listen deeply and consciously to what is being whispered to you now.  Meditate to quiet some of the busyness.

Mercury (Aries) sextile Mars (Gemini) – Today is a busy day, and you will find yourself wanting to work independently, especially if you are furthering work on a personal project!  You find confidence in your ideas and beliefs which will help you take advantage of opportunities presented to you today.

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Wednesday The Moon moved into Aries this morning and the pace of the week seems to pick up a bit.  Moon in Aries can make for impatience, interpersonal conflict, and possible rash thinking and action-taking.  But, it is also a time for thinking in new and fresh ways.  Be open to hearing what others are saying, especially if you are at the receiving end of someone’s irritation.  There just may be something of value for you to hear.  You don’t have to respond to anything anyone is telling you, just listen.

Mercury (Aries) square Saturn (Capricorn) – Mercury in Aries has been a busy and at times, an explosive deliverer of messages to us.  Squaring Saturn, Mercury shows where we still have work to do in the restructuring and reformatting of our minds, beliefs and patterns.

Thursday, May 2, 2019

The Moon in Aries today is conjunct Venus and sextile Mars.  Charm abounds and an Happy-Thursday-022atmosphere of love and desire allows for all sorts of pleasantries.  Both the masculine and feminine are working in harmony and that stimulates creativity that can extend into the new Moon window of the weekend.  Ask yourself this, “What more is possible for me?”

Mercury (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn) – Don’t force your ideas or opinions on others today.  Remember that these are things that you should be invited to share with others.  Watch for compulsive thinking today.  If you use the energy wisely, you will gain access to personal insights that help you move forward in your life.

Mercury (Aries) trine Jupiter (Sagittarius) – Today is a great day to look forward to the future and plan for those projects that support you moving forward.  Commercial and business deals are favored today.  It’s a great day for buying and selling as your mind is sharp and luck seems to be on your side!

Friday, May 3, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon is Void-of-course today from 1:47 am PT/3:47 am ET to 1:18 pm PT/4:18 pm ET.  That means it is a slower day today.  It won’t be a good day to start something new – besides we’re in the dark of the Moon – so clear off your desk, finish up what has been left undone or take some time to meditate!  Once we get to the afternoon, the Moon moves into Taurus and the energy picks up just in time for the weekend! 

The next couple of days can be solid launching ground for anything you choose to embark upon, especially if it’s down to earth to begin with. The time to be hasty or flighty has flown, the atmosphere favors practical beauty, the grace of being in touch with nature itself. Simplicity works, traditional fare is ever elegant.

Saturday, May 4, 2019

New Moon at 14° Taurus – 3:45 pm PT/ 6:45 pm ET/ 10:45 pm UT

The new Moon in Taurus favors grounded beginnings.  That means that when our ideas,New Moon Taurus plans and actions are in alignment, magical manifestation can occur.  We need to set powerful, emotionally connected intentions in the NOW. 

Taurus is about the material world, money and abundance.  It’s a good time to check in on how you are holding up financially.  Do you need to set some new goals to be more solvent, or be a better steward of your money and resources?  Remember that the financial markets play the long game and that means you may experience ups and downs, but it is patience that wins out.  Don’t panic if you sense an approaching crisis, but take steps to ensure your security … not from FEAR mind you, but from a place of caution. 

The Moon and Sun align with Neptune during this time, making us more receptive to hearing messages from our guides, angels, inner selves or other helpful humans in our lives.  Be discerning and use your intuition to clear up any confusion your mind throws at you.  Listen from deep within your soul. 

Sunday, May 5, 2019

SundayThe Moon in Taurus today trines both Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn.  There is a stability and power in the flow of energy today, but it is hidden by the Mars opposite Jupiter transit (see below).  Remember that a solid foundation is required in order to support your efforts in the world, and destabilizing the foundation can lead to disastrous consequences, so build confidently and carefully.  

Mars (Gemini) opposes Jupiter (Sagittarius) – Caution!  Don’t overestimate your abilities, talents or the time it will take to do something today!  There is luck to be had today in utilizing right timing to get what you want done.  However, there is also the possibility of creating instability in your life if you do not stay within your own boundaries or limitations.  This is a feel good day, and if you use the energy correctly, you will amaze others at how much you were able to get done!

I wish you all a fabulous week ahead!  Remember I will be out of town from May 1-7 so the MetaCafe will be on hiatus until then.

Much Love,

New Moon in Aries

The new moon portal this month comes on the heels of the South Node/Pluto conjunction and just before the South Node/Saturn conjunction.  What’s new is what is being destroyed, and what is being destroyed is making way for what’s new.  It’s all a part of the birth/death/rebirth energy that we are going through as we elevate our energies in our evolution of consciousness.

Aries New Moon – April 5, 2019 @ 15° Aries

1:51 am PT /4:51 am ET/

9:51 am GMT/7:51 pm AEDT

Happy First New Moon of the Astrological Year!

 

Moon Musings

New MoonThe new moon portal this month comes on the heels of the South Node/Pluto conjunction and just before the South Node/Saturn conjunction.  What’s new is what is being destroyed, and what is being destroyed is making way for what’s new.  It’s all a part of the birth/death/rebirth energy that we are going through as we elevate our energies in our evolution of consciousness.  For April’s part in this drama, it is about the creation of space – the space in which to create what is sustainable for us as we move on.  As we have learned, nothing is sustainable if we do not have a solid foundation at the beginning.  The empty space allows us to shore up and build anew on a solid foundation.  

Further, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node are intense, karmic and powerful.  We cannot be mamby-pamby in the face of what is moving within, without, and around us.  We have to take the time to get REAL and do what we need to do to release old ancestral karma and old energy around our lineages, lest we hang onto victimization.  Victim stuff is so last century! 

What do we do in the face of this intensity?  Well, we stop resisting the changes that are going on within us.  I think we could say that this is a great time for all of us to learn how to “let go & let God.”  A part of our journey through this new Moon portal in Aries will be about releasing, embracing the unknown, purging and purifying to make room for what is new, alive, healthy and evolutionary.    

Intentions for this New Moon

  • New Beginnings – This is the perfect time to set intentions as this is the first New Moon of the Astrological year!  The sky is the limit!  What would you create if you knew you could not fail?  
  • Courage & Strength- What fears do you think hold you back from being all you want to be or doing all you want to do?  This is a great time to let go – surrender those fears.  Or … feel the fear and do it anyway! 
  • The Self – Aries rules not only the physical body, but anything you can put the word Self in front of:  Self-respect, Self-Acceptance, Self-respect and more!  Dare to request the highest and best for yourself!  It’s not selfish to want to be fully in your power in order to give to others from your best SELF.  
  • Other areas that Aries rules are:  Self-Discovery, Innocence, Authenticity, Independence, Honesty, Leadership, Exploration, Competition and in the physical body Aries rules the eyes, head, acne, headaches, brain.  In the more low frequency realm Aries rules, Selfishness, Vanity, Anger & Impatience.  The idea being that you can set intentions in any one of these areas with this new Moon.

What Else?  – The following information is in general for each of the signs.  If you want a more personal reading of what the New Moon or the Astrological Transits are bringing you, then please get a Transit Reading from me.

Aries – The New Moon in Aries falls in your 1st House of Self.  There is a new you emerging at this time.  You may have chosen some new pathway and are now embarking on the journey that leads you to something that you have been waiting for.  Be proactive, be brave and DARE to be your true you!  

Taurus – The New Moon in Aries falls in your 12th House of the Hidden, Self-sabotage and the Sub-conscious Mind.  Taurus you must look deep within you at this time to see why you hesitate to charge ahead in new and exciting ways.  Is there some fear locked in your subconscious mind that it is time to let go of?  Process through what is holding you back, and claim your good, your abundance and your birthright! 

Gemini – The New Moon is in your 11th House of Wishes, Dreams & Vision.  What you can dream, you can achieve is your mantra for this new Moon in Aries.  Take the time to establish first your dream, then the steps that will help you get there.  Write them down, and don’t be afraid to add or subtract as time goes on!  What are your highest aspirations?  Aim high and let your spirit soar.    

Cancer – The New Moon in Aries is in your 10th House of Career & Profession (your worldly self).  Cancer you are playing host to the North Node and are being opposed by Saturn & Pluto & South Node in Capricorn.  For you it is all about staking a claim to your authority and refusing to play small anymore.  What do you need to put your best foot forward?  Find it, do it and see how your authentic self can shine through.

Leo – The New Moon is in your house 9th House of Expansion, Optimism & Faith.  Leo you are poised on the threshold of great things.  As this New Moon falls in a fellow fire sign, there is the potential for spectacular movement forward or a crash & burn.  The difference between the two is measured by how much of what you’re doing is a call from your heart versus how much you are doing because you think you “have to.”  Err on the side of heart-centered intentions and you will be in great shape! 

Virgo – The New Moon is in your 8th House of Sex, Death/Rebirth & Other People’s Money.  Virgo you are at a pivot point.  Your next steps should be ones that support the transformation you are undergoing and should be at your own pace.  Use your eye for detail to zero in on what you need to do to become more financially healthy, physically healthy and spiritually healthy.  In my mind, your ruling planet is Chiron and he is also placed in Aries right now.  The high side is that you have motivation to purify your environment and live more holistically.  What’s stopping you?  

Libra – The New Moon is in your 7th House of Relationships – Business & Personal.  Libra this is a great New Moon for you as it supports your favorite thing – relationships!  The potential exists for new or deepening interactions with the people in your life right now.  Extend yourself a bit, create new win-win situations with those around you.  Maybe reaching out to new people will help you establish a supportive network of co-creators.  What you don’t want to do is give too much of yourself away in the process.  Remember you’re represented by the Scales – so keep it balanced! 

Scorpio – The New Moon in your 6th House of Work, Service, Health.  Scorpio, your ruling planets Mars & Pluto have been in very powerful places over the last few months.  Have you burned yourself out?  Are you mentally, emotionally, physically drained?  If so, then this month is the absolute best time to take care of YOU!  Get a massage, take a vacation, turn off the tech and get some downtime from all the stimulation.  You will be recharged and ready to go in no time at all!  This is Be Good to YOU Month!  

Sagittarius – The New Moon is in your 5th House of Joy, Creativity, Children & Risk-taking.  Sagittarius, are you fairly bursting with new creative ideas, ticking down the days to that vacation, or spending more time with the children in your life?  Well these are the things that support you and make you feel good through this New Moon portal.  There are trips to take, fun to plan, adventures to partake in and you have the energy to do them all.  Just beware of taking too many risks – take “calculated” risks – the kind where you know what the pitfalls might be, and understand the cost-benefit ratios.  Prepare to have FUN!

Capricorn – The New Moon is in your 4th House of Home, Family & Foundations.  Dear Capricorns, you are under the most pressure right now of all the Zodiac signs.  You ordinarily have a flair for business and the savvy to be successful there.  But with Pluto, Saturn and the South Node all in your territory you may be feeling the weight of the world.  This new Moon affords you the opportunity to get some grounding under your fee by spending time with family and enjoying more emotional connections than usual for you.  There are great changes going on for you, and you have plenty of time for business next month.  So take a break and enjoy those people you love and who love and support you this month.  

Aquarius – The New Moon is in your 3rd House of Communication, the Mind & Teaching/Learning.  Aquarius your busy mind is busier than usual, if that is even possible!  The New Moon is well placed for you to network, share your ideas, be more brilliant than usual, and start new projects that engage teaching, learning or communication.  Want to teach a new subject or learn something new?  Take advantage as your mind is sharp and you have access to innovative approaches to putting your best ideas into action.  Just don’t let your mind get carried away with you! 

Pisces – the New Moon is in your 2nd House of Money, Resources & Self-worth. Time to put your feet to the fire Pisces and do what is necessary to earn more money or get your financial life moving ahead.  You have plenty of ideas on how that can happen, but unless you actually take action steps and DO something, they will remain up in your imagination and never get “down to Earth.”  This is not a time to engage in escapist behaviors, but this is a marvelous time to put your imagination to good use in the real world.   

Wishing you all a stellar New Moon in Aries! 

Love, Janet 

 

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 Forecast – Dec 3-9

Christmas divider

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

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

Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report for 2-12-18

Hello Everyone,

I was feeling better this morning so I actually did the morning energy report via video 🙂

 

 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and see you tomorrow morning 🙂

Blessings,

Janet

Weekend Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report

Good morning everyone,

I’m back again in writing to tell you about the energies for the upcoming weekend!  Typically I do this in video form on my Living Astrology FB page (if you haven’t seen the daily energy reports, go to www.facebook.com/livingastrology at 8:00 am PT each weekday morning) however, I am still a bit under the weather today.

We start the day with the Moon still in Sagittarius with a bit of a twist.  Early in the day, the Sun semi-squares (a bit of a challenge) Saturn, and this aspect can dampen our feelings of optimism and adventure and feel more restrictive.  Take heart though, by afternoon this feeling will pass and we will be restored to our excitement for the weekend!  Yay!

Saturday the Moon is still in Sagittarius, so at least we still feel good about what is going on in our lives, and frankly, this is the better day of the weekend for social engagements and having fun.  The Moon will pass over the Galactic Center later in the day.  My advice – have pen and paper in hand for some stellar information may be transmitted to you then!  Or at the very least, tune in to what your environment may be showing you.  When our Moon crosses the GC we can receive some cosmic ray energy and encoded in those waves are information on our evolution and direction … if only we are ready to decode it!

I don’t talk about this much, but the Moon will also be Void of Course from 11:39 am ET until the time it moves into Capricorn at 9:22 pm ET.  Typically this means that not much will move forward during this time.  It can be a bit of a lazy time.  Perfect for the weekend!  The last contact the Moon makes though is with Uranus.  So don’t let something surprising, unexpected, or crazy bring you down.  Be cool and calm – or get crazy excited if you win the lottery 🙂

Saturday Venus moves into Pisces where she will stay until March 6, 2018.  Venus in Pisces in ready to escape into romance and the ideal of love.  She paints her canvas will all the colors of what she sees to be “real” about her relationships, money and values.  Unfortunately, Pisces can sometimes be a bit of an escapist dreamer who refuses to see the truth.  If you are moving into a new romance or relationship during this time, please go in with both eyes wide open!  At the end of this transit, Mr. or Ms. Right could be revealed to be the exact opposite.  Guard against over spending during this time as well. On the other hand, Venus in Pisces restores flow – of money, emotions, love, etc.  Just don’t fall into the trap of escapism and confuse the ideal with the real.

Sunday the Moon is in Capricorn and will be headed for a rendezvous with Saturn and the Black Moon Lilith late in the day and into Monday.  This is not an especially feel good time – it may be that we have some vague feelings of something that isn’t right, or we may just not feel our best.  But, if you put yourself in the position of doing something useful and purposeful, you will feel like you have accomplished something and avoid that sense of dread.

All in all – not a bad weekend. I think the oracle card I pulled for the weekend sums it up nicely – FLEXIBLE.  By the way, I was remiss yesterday in letting people know what deck I have been using for the oracle card reading.  It’s called Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid, and it is beautiful and mind-blowing!

The card dropped out of the deck upside down – what she calls in Protection.  The message then is to allow Spirit to be the great mediator in any places in your life where you have become rigid.  Is it in your mind?  In your heart?  In your relationships?  In your beliefs?  Being rigid sets you up for a fight, but being Flexible allows for possibilities to enter that you might not have seen before.  Relax and repeat – “This or something better is manifesting for me now.”

Flexible oracle card

Oh and as a bonus, my friend Michelle reminded me the other day that the Goddess Guidance oracle deck by Doreen Virtue has a beautiful card for Vesta. Since we were talking about her this week, she suggested that I add her picture in the post too.  So Michelle – just for you:

VestaShe is gorgeous!

I wish everyone a wonderful day, and blessed weekend!  I hope to return to video on Monday.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Janet

Astrology for December 2014

Wow! What a way to set the stage for 2015! I love checking into the numerology of months and years to see if I can divine an undertone for the time period, and December this year is a wonderful harbinger of the energies to come. Assuming that you were able to let go of old beliefs, patterns and ways of limiting yourself in November, then December will be the launching pad to a whole new way of BEing.

untitled (6)

Happy Birthday

Sagittarius (11/21 to 12/20) and Capricorn (12/21 to 1/20)

December is an 12/3 month in a 7 Universal year making December a 10/1 month (12+2014=10/1) of New Beginnings, Optimism and Confidence.

Wow!  What a way to set the stage for 2015!  I love checking into the numerology of months and years to see if I can divine an undertone for the time period, and December this year is a wonderful harbinger of the energies to come.  Assuming that you were able to let go of old beliefs, patterns and ways of limiting yourself in November, then December will be the launching pad to a whole new way of BEing.

There are some very interesting astrological transits for the month of December as well.  On December 8, 2014 the planet Jupiter will turn retrograde in Leo which brings us a few months of inner growth and expansion.  Then on the 14th, the Sun in Sagittarius joins Jupiter in a Fire trine of Passion, Creativity and Action.  Now is the time to really tune-in to what your inner self is longing for, and choose to listen and act from your Soul!

We will also witness the 6th of 7 Uranus-Pluto squares on December 15, which have been ongoing since June of 2012.  The energy of these two planets in square has been responsible for bringing to a crisis point, some of the very things we thought were settled in the mid-60’s when Uranus and Pluto were in a conjunction.  For instance, we find ourselves still dealing with explosive racial issues, women’s issues like abortion and equality, and even voting issues have once again been brought up and tested.  As we come to the end of this part of the cycle and we pass the crisis point, what we will have left is more freedom and less oppression.

The big news for December is the move of Saturn into Sagittarius from Scorpio for the first time since 1985-1987.  For the last 2 ½ years we have been working through emotions and old beliefs – releasing what no longer served us, and moving forward despite our fears.  Now the energy will be shifting from the watery intensity of Scorpio into the fiery search for Truth that is Sagittarius.  Saturn as a planet, helps us focus and concentrate our energy, and Jupiter as ruler of Sagittarius is concerned with growing and expanding into more adventurous territory.  Together they can help us with sustainable growth, allowing forward momentum without over-doing it.

The Moon Cycle this Month:

The Full Cold Moon or The Full Long Nights Moon is December 6 at 14° Gemini-Sagittarius.  Remember that the full moon is a time when the Sun and Moon are in opposition to each other.

Meaning of the Sun (14 Sagittarius) during this full moon:  Tuning into the natural rhythms and cycles so that we can plan ahead accordingly.

Meaning of the Moon (14 Gemini) during this time:  Blending your energies with like-minded people in order to foster an open mind.

The New Moon occurs on December 21 at 0°Capricorn.  The New Moon is a time when the Sun and Moon are in a conjunction (at the same degree of the same sign).

Meaning of the Sun-Moon at this time:  Claiming and assuming one’s authority in the world.

December through the Signs

This month I will be focusing on what Saturn in Sagittarius will bring for each sign.

Remember to read the information for your Sun sign, Moon sign and Rising Sign to get a better idea of what is coming up for you. If you do not know your Moon and Rising sign, ask your astrologer or go to my website (address at the end of this article) and request your information.

Aries – March 20 to April 19

The next couple of years will be very interesting for you, Aries, as you will be dealing with Saturn in your 9th House of Beliefs, Philosophy and World View.  You may be ready to confront areas in your life where you have had a kind of tunnel vision or narrow mind.  Expansion of the mind begins when you can see and feel yourself as an individual part of a larger collective of souls.  Don’t be afraid to explore new and alternative systems of thought, new cultures, and new world views.

Taurus – April 20 to May 20

Ultimately these next couple of years are going to bring issues of your finances to the surface – especially any finances that you hold jointly with others.  This can be a very good time if you have been working to decrease your debt and have managed your resources wisely.  Timing is perfect for you to look into long-term investments and ways to build your financial security.  Don’t be afraid to try new things, but also be wise about what you get yourself into.

Gemini – May 21 to June 20

Relationships and partnerships come under Saturn’s scrutiny for you, Gemini.  Working with others is the perfect way for you to expand your reach in the world, but move into new relationships with both eyes wide open.  You want to partner with people of like-mind who are willing to do their share in the partnership.  At some point in this Saturn cycle, your Sun will be opposed by Saturn giving you a great opportunity to re-evaluate your relationships, and your life direction.

Cancer – June 21 to July 22

Health and healing are emphasized for you Cancer.  Saturn rules the skin, bones and teeth in the body, basically the structures that support us, and can expose weaknesses in these areas.  Good health begins with your beliefs about your body, the nutrition that you receive from the foods that you eat, and other healthy habits that you have developed.  These next two years would be fabulous for beginning a new healthy outlook on your life and your physical being by tuning into what would support your body.

Leo – July 23 to August 22

A few words of advice to you Leo, remember that child-like enthusiasm you have, and make joy and creativity a priority for the next couple of years.  With Saturn moving through your 5th House of Joy, Children, Creativity, it may be difficult for you to connect with the energies represented in this house.  Life may be more serious, busy or challenging for you, and the way to work with this energy is to have discipline while working, and to build in enough time for pleasurable activities.

Virgo – August 23 to September 22

Instability vs. Stability – that is the question for Virgos.  Saturn will be trekking through your 4th House of Home, Family, Foundations for the next 2 ½ years causing you to look carefully at what constitutes safety and security.  Are you holding on too tightly to things, ideas, or beliefs that are weighing you down rather than freeing you?  Focus your energy on the little things that, taken step by step, can build your foundation into something you can depend on.  Don’t let victim-martyr energy get in your way.

Libra – September 23 to October 22

Libra, your Jupiter ruled 3rd House of Communication, Learning & Neighborhood plays host to Saturn over the next 2 ½ years putting focus on Thought, Word and Deed.  It is here in the 3rd House where we first encounter our ideas of ourselves being manifest in the world.  Thoughts give voice to words which in turn give action to deeds.  Be Mindful, Be Caring, and Act from Love.  Let curiosity lead you into a new course of study that is stimulating and interesting to you.

Scorpio – October 23 to November 21

Scorpio you may be breathing a sigh of relief as Saturn is leaving your sign this month!  After 2 ½ years of emotional intensity and releasing of “baggage,” it is now time to see where that lightness of spirit takes you now.  My suggestion?  Find your passion, direct your formidable energy towards it, and watch both your financial picture and your self-worth improve!  One word of caution though – measured growth and expansion is favored over all out growth without boundaries.  Enjoy!

Sagittarius – November 22 to December 20

The pressure comes to you now Sagittarius.  For those of you in your late 20’s and late 50’s, you will be experiencing your Saturn return – a time for directing your life energies in an authentic and disciplined way.  Saturn’s transit through your sign may dampen your usual optimism, but if you use this energy to purposeful put one foot in front of the other, aimed in a new direction, this can be a very meaningful time for you.  Imbued with your personal Truth, a new confident and worthy you is emerging!

Capricorn – December 21 to January 20

Capricorn, your ruling planet will be moving through a sign whose energy may feel alien to you.  Your usual pragmatic and practical way of doing things will have to make room for Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius’ more expansive nature.  Sometimes you have to take risks in order to make progress, and the next 2 ½ years will definitely test your risk-taking abilities!  Face your worst fears and insecurities, act with a dose of faith and optimism, and at the end of this transit you will be amazed at what you have accomplished!

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19

The time for dreaming is done, and the time to put the dream in action has arrived!  As a “fixed” sign Aquarius you can get into a rut, and now is not the time to stay in that rut.  It’s time to release your ideas/ideals out into the world. Share your creative impulses with like-minded people, enlisting their help and support in getting noticed. Saturn is the traditional ruler of your sign, so you have a kind of luck or ease and grace with this transit, so make the most of it!

Pisces – February 20 to March 20

Pisces, you have been somewhat protected over the last year as Saturn was in Scorpio and Jupiter was in Cancer, creating trines or an easy flow of energy in your chart.  Now, as Saturn prepares to move into Sagittarius and Jupiter is in Leo, reality sets in and the real issues that were not dealt with, come crashing into you.  For most of 2015, Saturn in Sagittarius will be square to your ruling planet, Neptune in Pisces, creating a situation that can feel very much like a pressure cooker in the Pisces, Sagittarius parts of your chart.  If ever there was a time for a reading, then this is it!
