Freedom, Intimacy and Abundance

It seems this week is all about Uranus!  First Venus, then Mars, Sun and Moon trine the planet of Awakening.  So expect the unexpected, be ready for surprises and stay grounded (in your body and conscious).  Uranus tends to bring change in order to free us, not punish us, so be open-minded about what might be happening in your lives right now.  Mercury is added to the stellium in Virgo and we have a New Moon-Super Moon in Virgo later in the week.  The energy of Work, Service and Analytical thinking is in full swing

The Last Week of August

Week 5:  August 26-31      The Virgo Stellium, Uranus & New Moon

It seems this week is all about Uranus!  First Venus, then Mars, Sun and Moon trine the planet of Awakening.  So expect the unexpected, be ready for surprises and stay grounded (in your body and conscious).  Uranus tends to bring change in order to free us, not punish us, so be open-minded about what might be happening in your lives right now.  Mercury is added to the stellium in Virgo and we have a New Moon-Super Moon in Virgo later in the week.  The energy of Work, Service and Analytical thinking is in full swing!

The Human Design energies this week take us into Intimacy, Freedom and Abundance.  That is a recipe for a bit of magic to happen.  With the Sun at Gate 59 we’re focused on intimacy, creativity, and relationships.  We discover that interaction and intimacy form the doorway to evolution.  We cannot evolve and also be alone.  Through our relationships we access the spiral of consciousness.

The Earth is in the Gate 55- Abundance in Spirit.  Here we get a bit of a “spiritual awakening” as we release victimization and embrace freedom, and more FREEDOM. The Gate 55 sits on the emotional center (Solar Plexus) and not on the work center or Sacral.  What we discover is that working harder does not lead to more abundance.  Abundance is grown through our emotional resonance with it.

Later in the week the Sun moves into Gate 40 – Deliverance, which is literally another gate of Freedom!  This gate teaches us freedom for ourselves and from hardship by the correct use of will power.  When used incorrectly, willpower can lead to burnout, which can lead to exhaustion.  Adding to the lesson is the planets Venus and Mars also at this gate as if to emphasize the importance of the right use of Will.

The Earth will be at Gate 37 – Harmony.  This gate is also know by Serenity, Friendship, Peace.  All these can be yours by just understanding how to use your will to be in the flow of Universal energies.  Rather than pushing, wait for the signs and signals from the Universe on what comes next.

We begin the work week with the Moon in Cancer making a host of positive connections to the planets.  Even though we know that Cancer is opposing the Saturn, South Node, Pluto elements in Capricorn responsible for changing our world, we are buoyed by the excellent relationship the Moon has today.  There’s a bit of magic in the air!

Venus trine Uranus – Tired of the same ‘ol, same ‘ol routine?  Today’s your chance to get out and do something new and exciting.  It’s time to break the monotony!  Just be careful that you don’t take things too far.  Socialize, play, expand, do something that you normally wouldn’t do.  Go see a movie that you wouldn’t normally expect you would like to see.   Whatever you do today should feel new and out of the ordinary!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12-Catalyzing.  The Universal energy of 12 is understanding everything more deeply.  Catalyzing energy (Cauac in the Mayan calendar) helps us to use creative opportunities correctly and to avoid reacting to life with drama or disappointment.

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

The Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto early today and we may feel the rush of emotion or Tuesthe tinge of emotional upset.  This is a quick aspect and will soon pass.  Don’t make too much of any emotional confrontation.  Late today, the Moon moves into Leo and our fun returns!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  13-Enlightening (Ahau in Mayan calendar).  We have reached the last day of the week in the Pleiadian-Earth calendar, and as well the last day of this calendar round (which consists of 260 days).  The Universal energy of 13 is about completing all unfinished business and integrating what we have learned in preparation for the new week that begins tomorrow.  The Earth energy of Enlightening gives us opportunity for social progress and a way to commit to new ideals.  Watch out for polarized judgments.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

WednesdayThe Moon spends the day in Leo and we can be heart centered, loving, generous and fun-loving!  There may be some unexpected things happening -especially in the outer world – as Mars meets up with Uranus.  With this duo in Earth signs it makes me think of earthquakes or earth-shaking events.  Be prepared, but don’t be scared.  We just never know how these two will get along and what they will bring to us.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  1-Being (Imix in Maya) – Today is the first day of the week and the first day of the new calendar round.  The Universal energy 1 is about initiating and starting new things.  The Earth energy of Being is also about nurturing a new beginning and being creative.  Avoid being critical, reactive or needy today.

Thursday, August 29, 2019

Today, Mercury moves into Virgo and completes the stellium that has been building since Happy-Thursday-022the 18th when Mars moved into Virgo.  Mercury is the ruler of Virgo and is powerful in this very analytical and critically thinking sign.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  2-Breathing (Ik in Maya).  The Universal energy of 2 is about Duality, and challenges us to look at and accept opposite perspectives.  The Earth energy, Breathing, asks us to harmonize multiple points of view.  We should avoid being unpredictable or fickle today.

Friday, August 30, 2019   New Moon/Super Moon in Virgo

Friday pandaEarlier in the year we had our Full Moons as Super Moons, and now is the New Moon’s turn to be super.  A Super Moon is a full or new moon that comes to within 90% of the closest the Moon ever makes to the Earth.  It has more power or influence because of its proximity to us.  The tides are higher, and since we are made up of about 75% water, we are also more pushed by the tidal forces.  This New Moon at 7 Virgo is the closest new moon approach to Earth this year.  The New Moon is also powerful this time as it conjuncts Mars and Venus as well – the masculine and feminine aspects of creative energy.  Later this week I will do a more in depth post on the New Moon and what we can expect.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  3-Listening.  The Universal Energy 3 is Creating energy.  It inspires us to create new things or to think in new ways.  The Earth energy of Listening (Akbal in Mayan calendar) shows that we are meant to practice empathy, care and responsibility in our relationships.  Being pessimistic or controlling brings out the more negative aspects of today.

Saturday, August 31, 2019

The Moon is VOC (void-of-course) for most of the day today.  The VOC begins at 1:46 am Saturday memePT and lasts until 4:08 pm PT when she moves out of Virgo and into Libra.  For the next couple of days we are relationship oriented and have the opportunity to do more to bring balance and harmony into our lives.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  4-Planting.  The Universal energy 4 is about building solid foundations that create stability in our home, family or work areas of our lives.  The Earth energy of Planting has a lucky feel to it, is energetic, and good for starting new things.  Sounds sort of like good energy to have in the shadow of the New Moon doesn’t it?

Sunday, September 1, 2019

SundayThe Moon spends all day in the sign of Libra challenging Saturn but flowing smoothly with Jupiter.  That tells me that this is a mixed bag sort of day.  We may begin with a feeling of melancholy that later transitions into optimism and hope.

Mercury trines Uranus today as Venus trines Saturn.  Thoughts, words, deeds seem to align on days like today.  There is good energy flowing between these four planets (Mercury, Uranus, Venus and Saturn).  We may be filled with great ideas that we are able to find an expression for.  In fact, the Moon challenged by Saturn (see above paragraph) could be the stimulus to our being able to express creatively.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Moving.  Even our Pleiadian energy seems to show us that we can make some movement in terms of our creative energy today.  The Universal number 5 is change which can bring surprises and revelations that totally didn’t expect!  The Earth energy of moving implies shedding the old skin in order to grow, expand and find our next level of evolution!

Make it a wonderful week everyone – it’s in your hands!

Blessings, Janet

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!
