A Week of Change & High Energy

July will be one of the busiest months of year because it is eclipse season, and the eclipse are occurring across the axis of Cancer/Capricorn where there is already a lot of planets for the eclipses to trigger.  Add to that a Mercury retrograde from Leo back to Cancer, and you can just about envision some chaotic moments ahead for us. 

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

Astrology, Human Design & Pleaidian-Earth Energy

July 1-7, 2019

 

Overview of the Week:

July will be one of the busiest months of year because it is eclipse season, and the eclipses are occurring across the axis of Cancer/Capricorn where there is already a lot of planets for the eclipses to trigger.  Add to that a Mercury retrograde from Leo back to Cancer, and you can just about envision some chaotic moments ahead for us.

Let’s take a look at the week ahead:

 Monday, July 1, 2019

LeoThe Moon begins the week in Gemini, and then shifts into Cancer for the New Moon.  Directly after the New Moon, the Moon will move opposite the planets in Capricorn, and we’ll be again dealing with the emotional energy around what is restructuring, reforming, and rebirthing in our lives.  Midweek to Friday July 5, the Moon will be in Leo, making our Independence Day celebrations here in the USA fun and playful.  The first weekend of the month, the Moon spends time in Virgo.  Great days to clean, clear, organize and purify your home and environment.

We start the month and 1st week off with Mars, planet of action, moving into the sign of Leo.  Until August 18, we are confident, strong-willed, and graced with physical stamina to get what we want and where we want to go.  Where this transit is playing out in your chart is where you will see progress pushed by will.

Gate 56 will be activated in your Human Design and that moves us to create a new story without the victim content!

Jupiter moves back into Gate 5- Universal Timing.  Our expansion then returns to learning to have patience, and to understand that the Divine works in its own timeline.  Watch out then for impatience, reactionary energy, and leaping into or out of things.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Listening

Universal Energy 8:  Connecting – brings us accelerated communication and abundance on all levels. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

Earth Energy – Listening (Akbal in Maya Astrology):  Practice empathy, care and responsibility.  Release pessimism, being controlling or feeling troubled.

 

Tuesday, July 2 is the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 10° Cancer.  Where that is in your chart

is where you have “jacked up” manifesting and intention setting power this month.  Keep in mind that this also widely opposes the South Node, Saturn, Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.  There is high potential for restructuring your world around kinder, gentler, and more family oriented values.

The Sun will be at Gate 39-Provocation and the Earth at Gate 38-Struggle at this new moon.  We will want to address where we feel trapped or where anger is bubbling up to the surface in our lives.  We don’t want to do this in order to beat ourselves up over it, but rather to discover where we may take dynamic action and rise to the level of liberation and becoming a Warrior of Light.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  9-Planting

Universal Energy 9 Harmonizing – This is a day for bringing more harmony into your life.

Earth Energy – Planting (Kan in Mayan Astrology):  Feeling lucky, energetic, good for new beginnings.  Watch out for immaturity and being irresponsible. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Hump DayWednesday, July 3 Venus moves into Cancer and takes on a more nurturing and protective stance, especially in relationships.  This is mothering energy and we will need to watch for out for a tendency to smother those we love.  (or being smothered by others) until July 27th when Venus moves into Leo.  That means that Venus will be opposing the South Node, Saturn and Pluto trio in Capricorn during these weeks as well.  Don’t be surprised if relationships are undergoing change either through your own or the other person’s empowerment.

Venus will be sitting at the Gate 15- Love of Humanity this week, prompting us to resonate more with unity than with separation, although the outer world may still be showing us division and polarity.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Moving

Universal Energy 10-Manifesting:  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.

Earth Energy – Moving (Chicchan in Mayan Astrology):    Good for exploring and educating yourself.  Avoid confrontations, blame and competition.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Thursday, July 4  – The Moon in Leo today conjuncts Mercury – perfect for the

celebratory 4th of July parties and BBQ’s here in the USA to celebrate Independence Day!  The Moon in Leo is playful and loves interaction, add Mercury in the mix and you have the possibility of many conversations and communication streams available to you.

We also enter into a long Void-of-Course Moon today from 11:25 pm PT to 9:26 pm PT on July 5.  (July 5 2:25 am to 12:26 am on July 6 for you in ET)

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  11 – Transcending  

Universal Energy 11 – Illuminating:  Brings light to help us see more clearly.

Earth Energy – Transcending (Cimi in Mayan Astrology):  A day to transcend differences, let go of what no longer serves.  Watch out for inappropriate hesitation.

 

Friday pandaJuly 5 – We’re in VOC (Void of Course Moon) all day. Not a great day to attempt to get anything of real import done.  Relax, enjoy, swim, play, or meditate.  Leave the big stuff for another day!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12 – Remembering

Universal Energy 12 – Understanding:  Helps us to understand everything more deeply.

Earth Energy – Remembering (Manik in Mayan Astrology):  Seek peace and engage in cooperation, but don’t become overly compromising.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Saturday memeJuly 6 – The Moon is in Virgo today making it a great day to organize, clean, simplify and beautify.  She is also in great relationships to Venus, Uranus and the Sun today.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  13-Loving

Universal Energy 13 – Completion:  A time for completing all unfinished business and integrating it so that we can begin a new cycle tomorrow.

Earth Energy – Loving (Lamat in Mayan Astrology):  Be enthusiastic and productive without becoming competitive or aggressive.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

July 7 – Mercury Retrograde in Leo.  From now until July 31, Mercury will be retrograde Sundayin Leo eventually backtracking into Cancer.  Where this is in your astrology chart is where you may find yourself going backwards, having to slow down, or have to re-evaluate what you are doing.  Leo rules our identity and ego selves, while Cancer rules our family, traditions and foundation.

It’s interesting to note that in this Mercury retrograde the two signs involved are ruled by our two luminaries – The Sun and The Moon.  We are connecting deeply to both our souls and our egos during this Mercury cycle.  What will you discover there in terms of your desires, your Soul’s mission and your life journey?

The Moon spends the day in Virgo and is Void of Course from 9:50 am PDT to 11:07 pm PDT when it moves into Libra.  That leaves the bulk of the day without new Moon connections which spells the potential for a peaceful day.  Spend some time in meditation, study, yoga or other spiritual  or inner pursuits.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  1-Feeling

Universal Energy 1-Initiating:  Good day for starting new things – at least on paper or in idea form.

Earth Energy – Feeling (Muluc in Mayan Astrology) – We have a chance to deal with our emotions today.  Watch out for emotional reactivity though. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

That’s it for this week.  I hope you all have a blessed week!

Love,

Happy New Year!

Astrology for the 1st Week of the New Year –

December 31 to January 6, 2019

 

Special Astro Reading
Special Price thru January 2019
While the last couple of weeks in 2018 were fairly calm, the first week of 2019 is all about stirring things up.  It starts with Mars moving into Aries (the sign it rules) and the yellow caution sign turns green!  As we continue through the week, the Sun conjuncts Saturn setting the tone for their interaction over the year, we experience the first 2019 Solar Eclipse at 15 Capricorn, and the last planet in retrograde, Uranus, turns direct!  We have many indications that it is time to move forward!  And we are definitely ready, willing and able!  Let’s take a deeper look:
Monday, 12/31/18 – The Moon in Scorpio today merges deep emotional and intuitive energy with practical, simple and systematic actions.  We can play the long game now, letting the energy build up and then taking action in accordance to what shows up for us – no need to push!
Mars, planet of action and forward motion, has spent the last few weeks in the sign of Pisces and we felt like we were slogging through water.  Well no more! This evening Mars moves into Aries, the sign it rules, and action is restored.  The urge to act becomes stronger for some time, and often the actions come too quickly and precipitously, so be prepared for rash moves and subsequent retractions or re-directions. Be cautious not to be swept along unless you really mean to follow through and know what you’re doing. If you do, however, the tide is with you.
Best Action:  It’s New Year’s Eve – enjoy the holiday, reflect on the old year passing, and dream of what 2019 may bring.  Even though the engines are revving up, wait for the correct opportunities for you!
2019
Tuesday, 01-01-2019 –   Happy New Year !!  Today the Moon in Scorpio hangs with Pluto & Venus evoking our passions and emotional connections to one another.  We want to get along and create win-win situations in our lives moving forward.  Charm abounds and an atmosphere of love and desire allows for all sorts of pleasantries and can provide the foundations of more like it to come, if you go for it now. Starting something new today can bring the start of great friendships, creative projects, and achievements that bring both wealth and love.
The most important aspect of the day occurs late evening (in PT, early next morning in ET) when the Sun conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn.  This marks a time of altering our life course and setting goals – sounds a lot like New Year’s resolutions, yes?  Spend some time now in accessing what your desires are for the upcoming year, and then determining whether or not you are in alignment with your actions.
Best Action:  Take some time for self-reflection, write down goals & desires, and create space in your life for win-wins!
Wednesday, 1-2-19 – Today the Moon in Sagittarius trines Mars in Aries.  The engines are revved up, and the we have the green flag!  There is an excitement to the day as we engage ourselves in a new year with new possibilities.  Power and strength are our allies now, and we feel like we can accomplish anything!  With the Moon in Sagittarius we are optimistic and feel the need for honesty in all we do.  Just remember to keep a reign on your words.  No one wants to be at the receiving end of self-righteousness or blunt communication.  Stop, think, then speak so no one gets their feelings hurt.
Best Action:  Take action!  We have waited for this energy for a long time, and now we have it!  Just be sure to take care in what it is you do.  Follow your Type, Strategy & Authority to make the best decisions for YOU.
Thursday, 1-3-19 – The Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius today.  Our feelings of optimism and our actions are in harmony.  You could say that our Hearts & Minds are aligned right now.  Take advantage of the day.  About the only caution is to make sure you are being proportional in everything you do.  Don’t let your optimism and high energy get you into trouble later – keep an eye to sustainability and stewardship – in your energy, time, and money.
One small bump in the day comes when the Moon squares Neptune.  Feelings and internal visions can get muddled, and emotional miscommunication, either unintended or on purpose, may get in the way.  Be cautious in making long-term commitments – don’t get carried away!
Best Action:  Use the day’s feel good energy to take action on your goals and plans, but be cautious about making any long-term commitments not in alignment with those plans.  Stay true to YOU!
the weekend graphic
The Weekend 
Friday, 1-4-19 – Today both the Moon and Mercury move into Capricorn.  Everybody is getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done – especially as this is the gateway to the weekend. Linear thinking is favored over emotional reactions.  This is a great time to gain clarity in your life goals, making contacts and committing to high standards of behavior.  Be watchful for becoming too serious or rigid in your thinking.
The Moon is closing in on a conjunction to the Sun in Capricorn i.e. a New Moon Solar Eclipse.  So while today is great for thinking and developing plans, hold off on taking a new actions until after tomorrow’s New Moon.
Best Action:   Clear thinking without emotional attachment is favored today.  Make plans for your future that are grounded in reality through taking actionable steps.  Just wait to take those steps until after the new moon.
Saturday, 1-5-19   –  New Moon-Solar Eclipse in Capricorn today
When new year’s resolutions are based on fact, they are not resolutions anymore, but
projections. So get a realistic perspective and make that your prospective and you’ll be ahead of the game.
It’s time for the new, but the new that you know and can rely upon. A small, firm start is twice as good as a big, false one that has to be redone from scratch. Once you have your foot in the door, you can bust it down with the next push. It feels compulsory to do something right now, but the choice of action is up to you. This month, let it grow out of your experience, not your speculations, however fertile they may be.
Best Action:  Set solid, achievable goals/intentions that create incremental growth – no big splashy actions needed to get where you want to be!
Sunday, 1-6-19 –    Uranus Turns Direct at 28 Aries
Uranus moving forward signals a time of NO RETROGRADE planets!  YES!  Throughout 2018 we were doing a lot of inner work as planets were retrograde.  At one point in the Summer of 2018, there were 7 planets retrograde at one time!  Whew!  Finally we are all systems go, and full-steam ahead.  We won’t have another retrograde planet until March when Mercury changes directions.  But for now, we have the go-ahead from the Universe to take action and move forward demonstrating all the integration we have done.
There is one catch though – when Uranus turns Direct there can be sudden surprises, changes, explosions, excitement, upsets in the world and sometimes even in our personal lives.  Uranus did retrograde backward into Aries which gave us the Japanese earthquake & tsunami, the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, the Arab Spring, the Occupy movement, the Trump presidency in the USA, #metoo, and many other revolutionary and earth-shaking experiences.  Expect that there may be one or two more surprises for us as Uranus winds down this Aries transit finally moving into Taurus in March for the next 7 years.
Best Action:  Be open-minded and be prepared to take action when opportunity knocks!
Have a great week!
Janet

LIVE by Human Design – September Energy Report

I hope you’re all ready for a rockin’ and rollin’ September as there is so much going on this month that it feels overwhelming to write about it!

Let’s get started …

LIVE by Human Design & Living Astrology

September Energy Report

 

I hope you’re all ready for a rockin’ and rollin’ September as there is so much going on this month that it feels overwhelming to write about it!

Let’s get the big things out of the way first.  We enter into September with Mercury having moved retrograde in Virgo on August 30 and a Solar Eclipse in Virgo on September 1. The Sun-Moon combo are at 9 Virgo, while Mercury moved Rx at 29 Virgo.  Mediating both ends of the sign and making this an opportunity for growth is Jupiter at 28 Virgo.  It’s almost as if we have bookends!  The net effect of this is to make sure we have learned and continue to develop our Virgo lessons surrounding wholeness, health, practical forward action and connectedness! 

From a Human Design perspective, the Sun/Moon will be at Gate 40-Lonliness during the eclipse with Earth at Gate 37-Friendship and Jupiter/Mercury/Venus will be at Gate 46 – Love of the Body.  These energies together remind us to create or join community by getting ourselves out into the world to share our gifts and talents.  Even the Hermits out there will appreciate the forming of bonds that boost themselves and others in healthy ways. 

The second event for September (and maybe the biggest!) is the Lunar Eclipse on September 16.  I’ve learned 3 major types of Astrology and all three of them show a very energetic day for the 16th!!

Western Astrology – the Lunar eclipse occurs at 24 Pisces/Virgo (Sun in Virgo, Moon in Pisces) forming a T-Square with Mars at the point.  This adds up to high energy, dynamic change and an element of volatility.

Human Design – the Sun at 6 – Friction and the Moon/Earth at Gate 36-Crisis, pretty much sums up the potential energy of conflict during this time.  Anytime that Gate 6 shows up we have Impact, jarring our senses and making us take notice.  Crisis can be born out of boredom and restlessness causing us to do things we wouldn’t normally do.

Mayan Astrology – the Mayan system has built in “Burner Days” that they used as a way to release tension and the build-up of strain within the society.  On the Burner Days there would be activities that brought the tribe together and released the pent up pressure.  (The example of Super Bowl in our society comes to mind…)  Because we have no organized way in today’s society to relieve the stresses, big events tend to happen that serve to bring us together – almost as if on an unconscious level we know that we must open the relief valve, but nothing is available on the conscious level for us to do it. 

So it appears that all three systems of Astrology point to the potential for September 16 (or there about) to be a potentially impactful experience for us.  This is not about FEAR, but being AWARE of your surroundings, the choices you are making in any given moment, and realizing that there will be others who are not as conscious as you and they may be on an edge.  Seek PEACE, use COMPASSION, create from LOVE and we can minimize the negative impacts of this energy. 

The rest of the month seems tame by comparison – as we move beyond the Lunar Eclipse we find ourselves once again in the energy of Sun at Gate 46 – Love of the Body and Earth at Gate 25 – Love of Spirit.  Gate 25 energy is loving, sweet and healing! We will so need it! 

Venus will be sitting at Gate 50 encouraging us to nurture both ourselves and others – in a balanced way!

The last week of September we find ourselves in the energy of Opinions and Criticism – “Judge not, lest you be judged” is a great mantra for us during this week.  Worse yet are the harsh criticisms you may put upon yourself.  Remember kind words toward self and others can go a long way. 

Look for the weekly LIVE by Human Design updates for more specifics of each week.    

Keynotes for September: 

  • Mindset – take care of what you are thinking and remember not to identify with your thoughts! DO NOT make any decisions from your head.  If you need to know what your Authority is (your decision-making tool) go to my website at living-astrology and request your FREE Human Design chart!
  • Take care of yourself, especially if you are someone who tends to over nurture others and leave yourself out!  Compassion, love and nurturing are two-way streets!
  • Get into your body!!! Love your body as it is the vehicle for your Spirit… how you think about your body is as important as what you do for your body
  • Mercury Rx is in the Gate 47 (Mindset)/Gate 64 (Confusion) for most of the month so it is imperative that you KNOW yourself, get out of your head, and wait for MAGIC to happen.

October 2014 Astrology

Ah, October, the time of changing leaves, cooler temperatures, shorter days/longer nights and this year Mercury retrograde and Lunar and Solar eclipses! The fun begins October 4 when Mercury, planet of communication, the mind, and short distance travel moves into retrograde motion

October blog post

Ah, October, the time of changing leaves, cooler temperatures, shorter days/longer nights and this year Mercury retrograde and Lunar and Solar eclipses!  The fun begins October 4 when Mercury, planet of communication, the mind, and short distance travel moves into retrograde motion.  Many of you have heard about this tiny planet and the havoc that can ensue when it changes direction, but what you might not know is that during a retrograde we have the opportunity to look deep within ourselves and make critical adjustments to our “vision” of ourselves.  It can be the perfect time to re-imagine and re-envision our lives.  October’s Mercury retrograde begins at 2° Scorpio, a deeply passionate, intense and intuitive water sign and moves backwards to 16° Libra, a balance-seeking, and relationship-oriented sign.  This retrograde becomes an important part of the astrology for the autumn as Mercury sets the stage for the total Lunar Eclipse visible for us in the Western third of the country.

Eclipses are game changers!  The energy of an eclipse is a powerful door opener and door closer for us, and the sign of the eclipse and it’s placement in your personal chart can denote where and what type of transformation is occurring in your life.  The first eclipse is a total lunar eclipse on October 8.  During a lunar eclipse, the light of the moon (our intuitive, soul energy) is temporarily dimmed in favor of the Sun’s more ego-centered energy.  To make matters more interesting, during the eclipse, the Moon will be conjunct Uranus in Aries (planet of surprises, rebellion, and revolution) putting it in opposition to the Sun in Libra.  On the world stage, this is going to be an interesting time as we are looking at an eclipse across the Aries-Libra or Love-War axis of the astrological chart.  Could we find ourselves on the brink of another war?  Or, will cooler heads prevail and peaceful and diplomatic solutions rule the month?  Only time can tell.

Personally, we are also going through this same process of seeking freedom and rebelling against things that we have perceived to be holding us back.  We have a very good opportunity to find peace within ourselves, and ergo the World, by moving forward in our lives with the things that bring us happiness and simultaneously allowing the same for others around us.  We can create a win-win scenario by engaging this energy within our own lives – and the potential of inner peace and joy within creates the same in the outer world!

A partial solar eclipse occurs on October 23 with the new moon at 0°Scorpio.  With the passage of first Saturn, then Mars through Scorpio, this solar eclipse opens us up to combining our deepest soul needs and our healthy ego together in a new way.  Usually during a solar eclipse the Sun is completely blotted out leaving us much more open to our more intuitive nature.  This eclipse however, is only partial, so we can see a way to blend both the right and left hemispheres of the brain, i.e. the masculine and the feminine to become more balanced.

Happy Birthday Libra!

Libra – September 23-October 22

Your normal consensus-building, cooperative self may be put to the test this month.  The lunar eclipse across your relationship axis may have you wondering whether it is time for you to stop giving so much of yourself and to put yourself in the receiving seat.  Mercury retrograding back into your sign can also bring issues back to the forefront that you thought were already solved.  Use your formidable skills of tact and diplomacy to carve out a balance in your relationships.  And, as the North Node (destiny) is also moving through your sign, this is the time to empower yourself in ways you have been avoiding, even if it means disturbing the peace for the time being.

Scorpio – October 22-November 21

If you have been putting off dealing with a health issue, Scorpio, now is the time to take care of it before it has a chance to get worse or turn into something major.  Your sign has been playing host to both Saturn and Mars, and now this month, a solar eclipse.  There may be a lot of emotional themes coming up for you, and as most of us are aware, those emotional wounds can literally turn into body issues when we hold onto them.  It’s a great time for you to purify your body, mind and soul by paying close attention to diet, exercise, and what feeds your spiritual needs.  Letting go of old wounds, beliefs, judgments, and grudges serves to allow the passionate, giving and healthy you to shine through.

Sagittarius – November 21-December 20

Lucky you Sagittarius.  October’s lunar eclipse falls in your 5th House of Love, Romance, Joy, and Creativity, making this an awesome time for you to let go of anything standing in the way of your connecting fully to your authentic self!  Backing you up in this, your ruling planet Jupiter is in Leo the sign that holds rulership over the 5th House meaning that you are empowered at this time to follow your Truth to the Freedom that you so love.  Of course there may be little bumps along the way as Scorpio aligns in your 12th house of the hidden subconscious things that hold you back.  Be willing to face the F.E.A.R (False Evidence Appearing Real) and push through old patterns that have held you back.  Doing so now will be of great benefit when December rolls around and Saturn moves out of Scorpio and into your Sun sign

Capricorn – December 21-January 19

Capricorn, you may be feeling the push to spend more time at home with family as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season.  Likely you have had to spend a lot of time on your career of late, and your loved ones and friends are missing your presence, as you are missing theirs.  Remember that it is the connections we make with the people in our lives that sustain us.  No one wants to wake up one day and find out that the most important things in life have passed you by.  For you it really is time for a balance between self and others, and career and home concerns.

Aquarius – January 20-February 18

The Moon and Uranus in your 3rd House of Communication (the domain of a retrograde Mercury) may mean that something you say may be taken out of context or understood in the wrong way.  How you say things this month is at least as important as what you say.  An eclipse across the 3rd/9th house axis can also mean that you are ready to begin learning a new skill or taking on the role of teacher.  The eclipse may even bring up the possibility of writing and then publishing that book you have in you.  Just remember that you are an air sign and even though Mercury isn’t your ruling planet, you are still effected by its retrograde motion.  Check and re-check any communication coming from you this month.

Pisces – February 19-March 20

The financial game changer that you have been waiting and hoping for may be on tap for you this month Pisces.  Of course, abundance can come in many different ways.  It is a new job or income?  Or maybe money that you have been waiting for finally comes your way.  Or maybe it is a gift you receive that you absolutely did not expect.  No matter what it is, flow and abundance require a healthy sense of self-worth and the ability to value yourself appropriately.  This isn’t always easy for you Pisces.  Perhaps the timing is perfect for you to see yourself in an empowered way and boldly step out into the world in a way that has eluded you in the past.

Aries – March 21 to April19

The lunar eclipse effects your relationships.  This might be the time where bold action in leaving a bad relationship can be the route to happiness.  A move such as this requires courage and strength and determination, which you appear to have easy access to this month.  Use this time as a way to strengthen the most important relationship in your life – the one with yourself!  Pay attention to messages of change coming up from deep within you.  They may very well be the access to Truth that you have been longing for.

Taurus – April 20-May 20

Taurus, this is your time to come out of the closet and emerge into the light! You may have been grappling with a host of emotional baggage over the last several months.  It is time for you to make peace with all that fear, subconscious patterns and limiting thoughts that have been holding you back.  Remember that you are the Master Manifestor’s of the zodiac, and that the universe is an equal opportunity manifesting place, meaning that whatever it is you have devoted your thoughts, energy and emotions to, is what is being manifested.  Want access to financial abundance?  Then stop framing it in the form of thoughts on what you don’t have.  Make sense?

Gemini – May 21-June 20

As your ruling planet Mercury is in retrograde for most of October, Gemini, this could be a frustrating month for you if you’re trying to swim against the energetic tide.  The best plan of action then is for you to take a good look at what your vision, goals and aspirations are, and see if you can re-imagine your way into your dream self.  What would you do if you knew you could not fail?  This is not the month to take action, but do everything in the background that needs doing so that when we get into November you are ready to launch the new you!

Cancer – June 21-July 22

Dear Cancer, your eclipse pattern is across the 10th House of Career, Profession and your 4th House of Home, Family, Security.  Usually your concerns are more directed at the home, yet this month’s emphasis comes in your professional life.  It’s a good bet that someone is eyeing you for a promotion or some kind of recognition.  If you are self-employed, this could be a good month for business as you seem quite capable, professional and appealing in the marketplace.  Mercury will be retrograde in this area of your chart though, so be sure to get any promises in writing and be sure there is a clear understanding of what any new job requirements or pay structures are.  You don’t want to be surprised later.

Leo – July 23-August 22

Leo this is a time for you listen very carefully to your inner voice and intuitive knowing.  Lucky planet Jupiter is in your sign until next August, so you want to be fully present to opportunities as they arise now.  Remember that eclipses always close one door and open another.  So, even if it looks like something is changing and you are not sure what that means for you personally, you are primed for good when you are following that inner guidance.  There is also the possibility that you will have travel on your mind, or at the very least be exposed to different cultures in some way.

Virgo – August 23-September 22

Transformation is afoot for you Virgo.  The game changing lunar eclipse sits in your 8th House of Transformation and Unearned Income.  October energy can put you on the receiving end of money coming from investments, legacies, inheritances or in any other way that is not earned by the work you do.  This is probably something that you have really waited for and make for a life-changing event.

Eclipses

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

December 10, 2011

6:36 a.m. PST @ 18 Gemini

There are no more awe-inspiring and fear evoking astronomical occurrences than solar and lunar eclipses.  Throughout history eclipses have been greeted with dread, doom and gloom.  I’m sure that we could find many things that happened during eclipses that have given it this reputation including deaths of the mighty and the bringing down of civilizations, essentially a changing of the guard in the larger world we live in.  But for us as individuals, are eclipses something that should inspire fear?

My fascination with eclipses comes not from just where they are occurring today, but from their placement in our charts during our time in utero.  The eclipses that we experience pre-birth imbue us with their energies and are important indicators in our process toward achieving our destinies.  A reading of the pre-natal Solar Eclipse shows us what we are here on the Earth to teach.  Indeed, it even shows us the responsibility that we undertook to forward the collective consciousness of the planet.  It shows your promise to the universe and in return by teaching others you are bringing a balance to your own karmic scales.  A reading of the Pre-natal Lunar Eclipse in your chart shows the lessons that you came here to learn.  It is the lesson(s) of the soul and what it needs or desires in order to evolve.

Earlier this week I decided to try out the Pre-natal eclipse reading with a couple of friends because this is something that I haven’t used in readings for the last several years.  Who knows why I stopped working with this information, but it seems that now is the time to bring this useful tool back into my toolbox.  So, I called one of my friends and began relating her pre-natal eclipses to her.  The response was incredible – first of all, I realized right away what the impact was going to be for her as she has been wondering about whether or not she was on her right path – but the information I was giving to her was so amazing that I could hear the emotion and tears in her voice as she related to me how freeing this was for her; to realize once and for all that she was following a path laid before her by her own soul.  It was incredibly validating for me as well because I know where my eclipses are and I know what I am here to share and teach, and in that moment sharing with my friend, I knew for certain ( in that deep down body way of knowing) that I was on my path as well!  But, one person’s chart does not tell the whole story.  So, I recruited other friends and clients to work through their eclipses with me.  And, unbelievably a pattern is emerging about the importance of the prenatal eclipses and how “freeing” this information is for everyone.

The timing of these realizations couldn’t be more right on either.  The current eclipse pattern is in Sagittarius (truth-seeking, freedom loving) and Gemini (honest communication, working with change) – both are mutable signs, meaning the energy of change, flexibility, adaptability.  The transiting North Node (destiny) has been in Sagittarius since the beginning of 2011 and the eclipse pattern in force since last December – so we are all being asked to live our “truth” and seek to free ourselves from anything that is not authentic to our own spiritual or soul paths.  Each of you can probably relate to this information in your own lives as well.  Any place where you have noticed that you’re stuck or where you can no longer deal with the situation, person, job in its current state are being effected by this current astrological pattern as well.  The energy of change is upon us all – just look at the world we are living in right now – how willing are you to make the necessary adjustments to bring yourself into alignment with your destiny and soul’s desire?

Perhaps change isn’t just about our willingness to participate but our knowingness of the direction in which we are being asked to move? Am I on my “Path” or have I lost sight of it?  Are the changes I’m experiencing a part of my soul’s grand plan?   If you are asking yourself these types of questions, then I have a great offer for you.  From now until the end of December I would like to offer each of you a reading of your Pre-Natal Solar and Lunar Eclipse patterns for only $25!  This reading makes a great Christmas gift for loved ones and friends as well.  Contact me either by email at janethickox@hotmail.com or via telephone (360)399-1122 to schedule your consult today!

Happy Eclipse!
