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.

MondayMonday, August 26, 2019

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

Weekly Astrology Aug 19-25, 2019

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

The Stellium Builds

August 19-25, 2019    More Planets Move Into Virgo 

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

Monday & Tuesday, August 19-20, 2019

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

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

Monday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Choosing

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

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

Tuesday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  6-Exploring

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

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

Sunflower

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

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

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

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

Wednesday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  7-Healing

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

Sunflower

Thursday, August 22, 2019

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

Thursday – Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8- Seeing

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

Sunflower

Friday, August 23, 2019

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

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

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

Friday – Pleiadian Earth Energy:  9-Intuiting

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

Weekend

Saturday, August 24, 2019  

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

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

Saturday’s Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Evolving

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

Sunday, August 25, 2019    

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

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

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

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

Love,

Janet

Astrology to End July

Can you believe that July is almost over?  The Summer (or Winter if you’re down under) is just flying by!  And, lucky for us we are ending July and beginning August on a wonderful high note – a New Moon and Mercury ending his feisty retrograde.  Yippee!!

Monday, July 29, 2019

Monday memeWe begin the work week with the Moon having come out of Gemini and into Cancer early in the morning.  That means for the next few days we are dealing with our emotional natures and feeling things deeply.  Also, because Cancer as a sign is opposing Capricorn, we are also going to be dealing with the South Node, Saturn and Pluto (today & tomorrow) with the accompanying power struggles, destruction/reconstruction of something in our lives and melancholy moments.  We should be used to this by now as we repeatedly experience the emotional ups and downs of this transit each month when the Moon goes through Cancer, but also as we had Venus, Mercury and the Sun there over the last few weeks.

Today also brings us Sun square Uranus, which can be disruptive.  We may experience sudden mechanical issues, upsets/arguments with people, and possible ego clashes. The best way through this energy is to intentional find positive ways to let go of any “steam” you have been building up and thus mute the possible “explosion” of energy outward to others.  We can also be a little more accident prone during this transit.  Take care and stay in consciousness today!

From a Human Design perspective, we are still in the Sun@Gate 31 – Leadership and the Earth@Gate 41-Fantasy. During this time, we may be invited to step up and take on a leadership role.  But only if invited … this is democratic leadership, not authoritarian.  Any power grabbing behavior would not be appreciated.  Also, with Earth at Gate 41, using our imagination to create a better world is favored.  Later we will be asked to actually enact this in the outer world.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy: Remember that the number is the Universal Energy and the word represents the Earth Energy of the day.

10 – Illuminating  – The universal energy of 10 is to manifest and build upon that which we have already begun.  It can be challenging for us if we have been ignoring our work up to this point.  With the Earth in Illuminating, we are approaching the day with lightness or humor and avoiding the trauma/dramas where possible.

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Cancer opposes Saturn, South Node and Pluto.  This is the 2nd day ofTues possible emotional volatility this week.  Stay cool and allow emotions to “inform” you about what is happening without directly reacting to whatever is happening.  Late in the day, the Moon will conjunct Mercury on his last day of retrograde.  Maybe a memory of something in the past or words spoken in the past may come up to you today.  Don’t dwell on the past, again, just let it inform you.  The Moon is also trine Neptune today and that can make for some difficulty in concentrating or focusing our minds.  It is an excellent day for tapping into your intuition.  The Moon

Human Design Venus moves into Gate 31 today.  Venus represents our relationships and in Gate 31 – Leadership, we are ready to share and delegate power and leadership.  The real question is to ask yourself, “How can I serve?” Whether that is in a leadership capacity or not, the question is a good one to ask of yourself.

The moon turns void of course at 8:33 PM Pacific Time this evening an remains VOC until tomorrow morning at 6:18 AM Pacific Time.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  11-Choosing

11 is Illuminating in the Universal energy of the day.  Today brings light to help us see more clearly what is happening around us.

Choosing is the Earth Energy of the day.  Today is a great day to be able to experience collective healing and nurturing.  Settle differences today, but avoid being selfish and trying to get your own way.

Wednesday, July 31, 2019  

Hump DayWe’ve reached the high point of the week with both the second new Moon of July, this time in Leo and Mercury turning direct in Cancer happening almost simultaneously this evening. Let’s break down the day:

The Moon ends its void this morning at 6:18 AM PT/9:18 AM ET by moving into the sign of Leo in preparation for the new Moon phase. The Moon will conjunct Venus and square Uranus before its conjunction to the Sun today.

The Moon conjunct Venus in Leo is a cheerful and social connection.  We feel good and that translates outward from us to the people we are around. It’s a great time for decorating and shopping for things that beautify our lives.  Just watch the tendency to over-spend!

The Moon in Leo square Uranus in Taurus – We must be careful with this transit as it gives us an impulsive nature, and we may be on the more reactive side of anything that is said to us today.  We can be triggered easily, so now is a good time to exercise your breath before you say or do anything.

The New Moon

The new moon occurs at 8:12 PM PT/11:12 PM ET at 8 degrees Leo. What can we expect New Moonwith the new moon in Leo?  The new moon in Leo represents romance, love, and bringing joy to our lives. Leo as a sign also rules self-confidence and being recognized for our brilliance and our genius. This is a time of year for playfulness and enjoying life, and with no major aspects this month to annoy us, we are in for smooth sailing.

Things to do with this new moon:

  • express your creative genius and live your passions
  • celebrate play have fun
  • be generous with yourself, your time with those you love, and with your other resources.

Things not to do:

  • Do not be a shrinking violet – get out into the world.
  • Do not cross the line from self-centered to narcissistic or to selfishness and
  • Don’t shirk your leadership roles. Step up if you’re called upon to serve.

All in all, this is a wonderful New Moon and sets the stage for quite the pleasant month of August!

Mercury Direct

Mercury turns direct ending its 3-week retrograde phase at 8:52 PM Pacific Time. Together with the new moon this is now our green light to move forward and begin something new in earnest. One word of caution – Mercury will be crossing forward through territory he was already in … this is called the shadow period of the retrograde cycle.  You may have to finish up with some old business before you can move fully into the new.  By August 14th, Mercury will be in territory, officially ending this retrograde cycle.

Human design for this week: The new Human Design week begins today as well, with the Sun moving into Gate 33-Mindfulness & Remembering, and the Earth moving into Gate 19 – Sensitivity & Inclusion.  We are being reminded this week that the story of humanity is so much bigger than our singular perspectives are.  We are being asked to raise our consciousness to the level of Unity and begin to create the framework to experience that in our outer world.  By tuning into the inner dynamic and giving ourselves time to meditate, we can see the possibility for a new role for us in the grand tale of Humanity!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:        12 – Exploring

The Universal Day 12 is Understanding.  We are helped to know and understand our world at a deeper level and to see our role in the grand play more clearly.

The Earth Energy – Exploring – is good day for travel and harmonizing different point of view.  Watch out for being overly critical or too rigid and set in your ways.

More on the upcoming month of August later this week!  For now, have a wonderful start to your week and prepare to have fun, to play and have a wonderful break from the crazy transits we had in July!

Blessings,

Wormholes & Miracles – The High Potential of This Week’s New Moon

The power of the week we are in where “wormholes” connect us to powerful places, information, people and opportunities.  As if by magic and miracles we find ourselves in the exact right place at the exact right time.  It’s rather exciting, but more than that it is a hint at our true potential when we are aligned with Universal timing energies.

Astrology Transits for June 3-9, 2019

Welcome to the first week in June!  Can you believe it?  Time is certainly flying by, and I hope you are making the most of it.

Speaking of making the most of it – Yesterday I was driving with my husband down to Coupeville, WA, a quaint town with some shops, great restaurants and a boardwalk.  As we were driving, I got this feeling inside of wanting to break out and break free.  I wanted to spend my days exploring, adventuring, hiking, playing and I didn’t want to just stay in my safe little placed anymore tucked away from everything.  It almost felt like a “Call of the Wild,” a wanting or hunger to escape the dull and the routine.  What I didn’t know, is that I had tapped into the energy of the first week of June!

If you are a follower of my weekday morning show on Facebook, The MetaCafe, then you have heard me talk about several types of astrology:  Western Astrology, Human Design Astrology, the Gene Keys, Mayan Astrology, and recently we’ve been talking about Pleiadian-Earth Energy Astrology and the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar that goes with it.  Unbeknownst to my “conscious” mind, yesterday was 4-Exploring.  The 4 represents the Universal Energy of the day, which is foundational, supporting our building of firm roots to bring stability to our lives, and then the Earth Energy of the day was Exploring. Exploring is about seeing the world, travel and harmonizing opposite points of view.  Interesting that even though I consciously didn’t connect with the day’s energy, on the Spirit level I was totally in synch with it!

Such is the power of the week we are in where “wormholes” connect us to powerful places, information, people and opportunities.  As if by magic and miracles we find ourselves in the exact right place at the exact right time.  It’s rather exciting, but more than that it is a hint at our true potential when we are aligned with timing energies that are NOT our Gregorian calendar or other “mechanical” ways of being or knowing.  Let’s break down the week ahead:

Monday, June 3, 2019

Copy of UntitledWe begin the week with the New Moon in Gemini at 3:03 am PT/6:03 am ET/10:03 am UTC.  Gemini influences many things: Motion, Learning, Communication, the Mind, Social skills, Nervousness, Indecision.  In the body, Gemini influences:  Hands, Wrists, Arms, Shoulders, Hay Fever, Lungs & Breathing, Nervous System.  As a new Moon is about starting something new, or setting intentions for whatever it is you want next, any of the above are areas where you can find alignment with the Gemini new Moon. Where do you want to go?  Who do you want to be?  What is your message to the world?  The magic in the new Moon, is the ability to see or sense a pathway forward to live your most wonderful life!

Later in the day the new Moon opposes Jupiter and as long as it is our own idea, we feel generous and giving toward others.  However, if we feel like we’re being pushed into generosity, an emotional response could occur for us.  This is a great day to do some inner spiritual work around goals and aspirations – aligning yourself more powerfully with your intentions and what you want to manifest in your life!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy Day:  6-Seeing.  Six is the Universal energy of FLOW with movement happening on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, dimensional).

The Earth energy of the day is SEEING.  We are in tune with new ideas with amazing potential action on our ideas as well.  This is a day to pay attention to the details, and avoid rash decisions or “knee-jerk” actions/reactions.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Today is a quiet day with the Moon transitioning early in the day from Gemini into TuesdayCancer.  Our emotions take center-stage for the next couple of days.  We see through an emotional filter, and respond through that filter as well.

The Moon conjuncts Mercury today, and we are able to put feelings into words.  This can be very helpful energy if you have something you need to communicate with someone that is of an emotional nature.  The real wormhole or miracle in this connection today, is that we are ready to take responsibility for and own our emotions.  We can learn how to use emotional energy to inform us of what is going on inside rather than blurp it outward onto other people.  Communicating in the light rather than from the shadow.

This afternoon Mercury moves into Cancer for the next few weeks and all our communication and even our minds are in feeling mode.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy Day:  7-Intuiting. 

Universal Energy 7 is Merging.  The opportunity today is to be able to merge our consciousness with that of others.  We can tap into what they’re feeling, what they really are communicating with us, and see the truth of who they are.

Earth Energy:  Intuiting.  Today is about our innate ability to recognize what is real and what is not. Watch out for reacting emotionally (overreacting) to what is going on around you today.

Wednesday, June 5, 2019

Hump DayThe Moon is in Cancer all day today and conjuncts Mars, flows nicely with Neptune and opposes Saturn.  To me this spells mixed bag kind of day.  The potentials exists for conflict and confrontation, emotionally connecting with Spirit, and also some feelings of melancholy and depression.

Moon conjunct Mars:  You may find it difficult today to contain anger.  Low energy expression – you lash out or start a confrontation with someone (or vice-versa) or high expression is you recognize the anger, process it and release it without conflict.

Moon trine Neptune:  You may feel dreamy and imaginative today.  But this transit also helps keep the emotional tone down as it stimulates our empathy and compassion.

Moon opposing Saturn:  We may briefly feel alone and isolated or cold and unfeeling.  This is a transit of melancholy and at times, depressive moods.  However, this is brief.  The beautiful part of this time, is that when we come out at the other end, we feel a stronger connection to one another.

The wormhole and miracle for today is our recognition that emotional energy is transitory and overreacting to it in the moment is painful, while allowing it to flow through us is a pathway to inner peace.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Evolving

Universal Energy 8:  Connecting for communication and abundance on all levels.

Earth Energy Evolving:  New possibilities emerge as we take care of our own evolution.  Watch out for disappointment if plans fall apart today. Disappointment is an emotion that will soon pass as other opportunities show up.

Thursday, June 6, 2019

The Moon spends half the day in Cancer and the other half in Leo making connections to Thankful ThursdayPluto, Venus and Uranus. Today we really get a chance to see how the Moon can create moodiness where one minute we’re down and the next we’re up.

Moon opposing Pluto – This transit occurs while most of us are sleeping and so may play out in your dreams.  We feel the pressure to push our way into something or to make progress.  The message however, is to have patience and go with the flow.  It makes the journey so much easier.

Moon sextile Venus –   Mutual trust, love and beneficial connections with one another mark this transit.  We have each others backs, if you will, and it feels marvelous.

Moon square Uranus – And then, it all falls apart and dissolves into pointless arguments.  That is, of course, unless you recognize what is happening, and don’t fall prey to that kind of thinking.  Instead, value each others input and uniqueness.   Maybe take a step back until the mood changes and then see with new eyes.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  9 Self-Regulating

Universal Energy 9 is Harmonizing.  It’s a day for bringing more harmony into your life.

Earth Energy:  Self-Regulating – Doing what you do best, and being true to YOU.  Some days we have to make hard choices, and today may be one of those days.  Watch out for confusion. You may have to wait to make decisions or take action until you get clarity.

Friday, June 7, 2019

Friday pandaToday Mercury and Uranus meet up and treat us to new ideas, discoveries and a sense of excitement.  This is a great day to try new solutions to old problems or resolve old issues.  We have access today to new levels of consciousness, exactly what Einstein thought we needed in order to solve our problems.

The Moon in Leo today sextiles the Sun and trines Jupiter, making this a feel good kind of day!  If only we could bottle up this kind of day and drink it on the more difficult days!  We are warm and generous with our time, we want to help one another, and we expand our optimism outward to the world.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Catalyzing

Universal Energy is 10 – Manifesting:  It’s a day for making connections and manifesting the next layer of our work.

Earth Energy:  Catalyzing:  Seeing and using challenges as creative opportunities.  It would be a waste of today’s “feel good” energies to react with drama or disappoint to any challenges.

Weekend

Saturday, June 8, 2019

The Moon spends most of the day in Leo – let’s play, dance, sing, socialize or hang out with friends or family!  Later in the day, the Moon moves into Virgo and for the next few days we are more practical, organized, and detail-oriented.

Venus moves into Gemini today trying on her social butterfly garb for the next few weeks.  We are more sociable and outgoing now, and we are willing to try new things and dabble in new pursuits.  One small drawback, what we like and resonate to now may not be the same things we enjoy later.  Be prepared for the short term fad.  In other words, don’t change the fundamental you in the process of trying the new.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  11-Enlightening.  This combination is all about LIGHT.

Universal Energy:  11 (Illuminating).  Bring in the light to help us see more clearly.

Earth Energy – Enlightening:  We see new pathways for engaging with one another in a more ideal way. Social progress is possible now  Watch out for polarizing and divisive judgments.

Sunday, June 9, 2019

I bet we can get a lot done today as the Moon in Virgo connects with Mercury, Mars, Neptune, the Sun, Saturn and Jupiter!  You know what this feels like to me?  Like the honey bee going from flower to flower doing her job of pollinating!  We’re busy little bees today.

The Sun today is square Neptune and the Moon.  We’ve reached the first crisis point of the new Moon, the “crisis of action.”  We may be faced with something that doesn’t quite fit with our intentions, and we have to choose to move around the block or rework the plan of action. Whatever you do, do not give up on your intention.  Go with the flow and see where it takes you.  Sun square Neptune can make it difficult for us to stay grounded in reality.  We may be reaching for ideals while the real world isn’t in alignment.  Don’t get discouraged.  Use common sense and attention to detail to move through the day.  There is also the possibility that we feel low-energy today, so take it easy, do what feels good, leave the rest for another day!

Wormhole potential for today:  Tuning in to the natural cycles and rhythms of your body.  Rest when it is tired, eat when it is hungry, play when it demands play.  So much of our energy is devoted to DOING, we forget that REST is also a required.  You are a Human BEing, not a Human DOing.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12- Being.  I’m loving the coherence between the astrology of the day and the Pleiadian-Earth Energy calendar!

Universal energy 12 (Understanding) – Helps us to see and understand our world more deeply and clearly.

Earth Energy – Being:  Be nurturing and creative.  Avoid being reactive or critical.  Just enjoy!

Well that’s it for this week everyone!  Make it a good one!

Love,

Janet Hickox

Busy, Fun and a Bit Unpredictable This Week

Weekly Astrology Overview:

A much easier week is ahead for us and one that likely will be filled with ideas, conversations, fun and social events.  That’s not only in the stars, but here in the USA Memorial Day weekend is coming up and that means potential BBQ’s, picnics and family gatherings!

The biggest astrology news of the week is both the Sun and Mercury moving into Gemini and conjunct one another on the same day!  I would be prepared for busy-ness, a lot of activity and possible scattering of energy as we may lose focus easily with so much going on around us!  The only other “big news” this week is Mars sextile Uranus, where we may feel restless or impatient, and we then jump into making rash decisions.  Let’s break down the week:

Monday, May 20, 2019

MondayWe begin the work week with the Moon in Sagittarius.  There is hope, optimism and excitement.  We’re looking forward, having left the emotional full Moon in Scorpio behind us!

The Moon squares Neptune today.  We may be in a dreamy state of mind and feel like escaping reality.  We may be super sensitive to our environments as well, so make sure you stay away from toxins – including people who have a negative effect on you.

Later today the Moon conjuncts Jupiter leaving us with good feelings and a generosity of spirit.  We are less likely to get triggered by events or people around us.  About the only possible negative here is that we might latch onto an idea or objective and become obsessed with it.  If you experience this effect, then you have to look deeply within your subconscious mind to discover what this means for you.

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

While you slept, the Moon moved into Capricorn, the Sun moved into Gemini and then TuesdayMercury moved into Gemini!  That’s a lot of energy surges happening while you’re trying to sleep, so don’t be surprised if your night was restless and/or you took part in many different dreams!

Let’s start with the Moon in Capricorn which is business-oriented and task centered.  We can get things done, that is if the Sun and Mercury didn’t both move into Gemini at nearly the same time!  LOL

The Sun and Mercury in Gemini are sociable, communicative, and easily distracted.  That could make getting anything done nearly impossible as we are pulled in many different directions.  It does make for excitement and sharing of ideas though, and eventually the work gets done.  So relax and enjoy the conversation, exchange of ideas, and the minds  capriciousness for now 🙂

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Capricorn and Mars sextiles Uranus.  On the one hand, there is much opportunity to get things done, and on the other hand, things may happen that distract you or take you away from your stated goals and intentions for the day.  I would say that this is a day to master “going with the flow” as nothing may go as expected!

Mars and Uranus are both very active planets, although Mars is more deliberate, he is debilitated and frustrated a bit by his placement in Cancer right now.  Uranus, in earthy Taurus, is also slowed down by his placement. These two planets coming together could spell frustration, irritation, restlessness and erratic behavior.  Be careful with what you say or do today.  Be especially careful around metal and electricity!  That includes driving!  This energy could last for a few days!

The Moon is also conjunct both Saturn and Pluto today.  There could be emotional undercurrents fueling the Mars/Uranus energies.  Watch for becoming overly reactive to people and events today. Remember that you always have a choice on how to react or respond to what is going on in your life.

Thursday, May 23, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from last night at 8:57 pm PT until today at 10:49 am PT when Happy-Thursday-022it moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius.  I sincerely hope the Moon’s move helps us to see things more clearly and with less emotion than the last couple of days!

The Moon in Aquarius often brings us brilliant flashes of inspiration or epiphanies.  Things that were hidden from us can burst out in a moment of absolute clarity.  The Moon squares Uranus today, the ruler of the sign Aquarius.  We want excitement, freedom and movement, but with the rebellious nature of Uranus in Aquarius we may not necessarily be able to make decisions that are good for us.  Refrain from doing anything rash or risky!

Friday, May 24, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon is in Aquarius all day today, but has a more peaceful use for the energy as Venus is also involved with the Moon.  For those of you in the USA anticipating a 3-day weekend, there is enough energy to make the day go quickly, but not enough to create havoc.  Try to complete projects and clear off your desk so that you start next week with ease.

the weekend graphicNOTE:  I’m including Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the weekend astrology because of the Memorial weekend in the USA.

First a few words about the weekend for those of you who are celebrating a long one by camping or getting out into the great outdoors.  The Moon transitions into Pisces late Saturday, and spends Sunday and Monday in the sign of water.  Be Careful – especially around water this weekend.  Keep your wits about you when boating or swimming or participating in other water sports.

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius is ready to play!  The only major aspect for the day is a sextile to Jupiter and that means good times!  Have fun, but remember that the Moon in Aquarius can be unpredictable, and this makes it a day to try not to take risks.  Be safe and sane while you’re having fun!

Sunday, May 26, 2019

The Moon has transitioned into Pisces, generally speaking a sign of calmer, more compassionate energy.  But, the Moon actively engages with Uranus, the Sun and Mars today, adding unpredictability and aggressiveness to the energy.  We may be tempted to overdo it, so have perspective and a sense of proportionality to everything you do!  Keep it a fun and relaxing time.

Monday, May 27, 2019  Happy Memorial Day

Monday memeToday the Moon spends the day in Pisces and is challenging Mercury.  We may be feeling a little tired or low energy to begin the day, especially if we have had an especially busy or action-packed weekend.  Our minds may not be clear either, so take some time to relax, breathe and enjoy the time spent away from the usual daily work you do.

The Moon conjuncts Neptune today as well, and we may feel especially creative and imaginative.  Our intuition is also heightened on a day like today.  Pay attention to the signs, symbols and images that come up in your mind as they may hold the key to your potential.

Make it a great week everyone, and enjoy the extended time for the weekend!

Love & Blessings,
Janet Hickox

Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast

February 25 – March 3, 2019

Humming Bird

 

A sort of quiet characterizes this week as most of the planets have already made contacts to one another in the preceding two weeks.  That doesn’t mean that there are not opportunities or challenges this week, but rather we experience the continuation or solution of issues that came up earlier.

The Moon this week moves through Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius highlighting the part of the Zodiac we think of as relationships we have with the outer world.

Don’t forget that we are in the shadow of Mercury retrograde, so don’t be surprised or upset if things seem to take longer to accomplish right now, or if there are reversals and re-do’s in your life.  You can help yourself tremendously if you slow down and take your time doing things.

There are a few big news type events, which I will detail further into this post –

  • Venus moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, while in a square (challenge) with Uranus in Aries.
  • The Sun in Pisces sextiles Mars in Taurus
  • The Sun & Moon square one another in their monthly dance that brings us a “Crisis in Consciousness.”

The Human Design week takes us into interesting territory as well.  The Sun moves into the Gate 37- Harmony, which is about creating positive Family & Community Alchemy, Friendships and Equality.  The Earth at Gate 40- Aloneness, which challenges us as individuals to love our “aloneness” but not to the exclusion of community.  There is so much for us to learn from these two gates that link the Solar Plexus to the Will Center:  force vs. will, equality and balance, work vs. relaxation.  I could do an entire post or workshop just on the ramifications of the evolution going on in these two gates.

Let’s take a look at the day by day this week:

monday (3)

Monday, February 25, 2019

We begin the work week with the Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, meaning it won’t be until later in the day where the energy picks up and we can see results.  Don’t beat yourself up trying to force things to get done, you will just end up frustrated or upset.  Rather, wait until later in the day (after 1:20 pm PT/4:20 pm ET) to complete tasks from earlier in the day. When the Void is over, the Moon will be in Sagittarius and our attitude and outlook get a boost.

tuesday

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

The Moon is in Sagittarius all day today adding a dose of emotional optimism to the day.  This is a good thing, as the contacts the Moon makes today are challenges to both the Sun and Neptune.

Moon square Sun – This is what we call the time in the Moon cycle of “crisis in consciousness.”  In order to move forward with our New Moon intentions, we must deal with the internal dialogue, beliefs, or patterns that are preventing us from moving forward.  Only then will we see a new pattern emerging and establishing itself in our lives.

Moon square Neptune – You may be more sensitive today to other people’s moods, to the environment, and to the sights and sounds of daily life.  You may also be in a more dreamy state of mind, and that makes this a bad day to make big decisions.  Hold on until tomorrow, when the energy shifts to do anything of importance.

wednesday

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

The Moon is still in Sagittarius today, and we’re still feeling buoyed by optimism and a strong faith that everything is going to turn out well.  Added to that, today’s Sun sextile Mars, gives us energy, stamina and a positive attitude to do what is necessary to move forward.

Sun sextile Mars – The Sun is in creative & imaginative Pisces, while the planet Mars is in deliberate, “get-her-done” Taurus.  Together these two planets energetically push us to Manifest & Create and to do it according to a plan of action – yet leaving some wiggle room for creative insights!  We are also more self-assertive under a transit such as this, so there is a small warning to remember to be a team player and not insist on having your own way in all things.  Pisces is mutable (changeable) and Taurus is fixed – so we have to be able to work with both types of energy today.

Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter – The Moon conjunct Jupiter adds to our optimistic attitude today, but can cause us to overdo just about everything.  So take steps to do things in moderation, and proportional to what is possible for you on an energetic level – meaning your personal energy, finances, time, and physical energy and stamina.  

thursday

Thursday, February 28, 2019

While we slept, the Moon moved into serious and business-like Capricorn.  This is a day filled with the potential to get things done, and to be quite task-oriented about it.  Make your lists and check off items as you’re done and by the end of the day you will feel quite accomplished.  The Moon is also sextile the Sun today, so there is smoothness in your relationships and opportunities might arise today from unexpected places.  Be open to receive.

March-LionLamb

Friday, March 1, 2019

Happy March Everyone!  You know they say that if March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb…or at least that’s weather lore about the beginning of this month.  I wonder if things are the same in the astrological landscape because March does come in as a bit of a lion for us this year.

Venus square Uranus Venus, at the end of her transit in Capricorn, finds herself tangled up in a challenging square to Uranus today.  Venus being Venus, things aren’t all bad … more like interesting than challenging really.  When Venus and Uranus come together this way there is experimentation, flirting, and excitement.  Sometimes though, there can be triggers to conflict and fighting.  The trick is to not make mountains out of molehills.  Keep perspective with all your relationships.

Also – since Venus rules money, watch impulse buying!  Make sure that if you are buying something big, that it has real value to you, and that it isn’t just a momentary whim!

Venus ingress Aquarius – I just used a new astrological term for you – Ingress – an ingress is just a fancy way of saying that a planet moved into a new sign.  Venus in this case, moves from Capricorn into Aquarius today and thus changes the interactions in our relationships, how we view our personal worth, and what we value.

While in Capricorn, Venus was wearing her business garb, but in Aquarius she is much more dressed down, funky and much more interested in friendly dynamics.  However, Aquarius can be aloof at times and come across as emotionally detached.  We will want to make sure to be kind, open, honest and transparent with everyone in our lives right now.  If you’re not feeling the emotional connection to someone in the moment, don’t force yourself to be something you’re not.  Instead, value and honor each other for your differences, as that builds the unique tapestry of the world.

Saturday, March 2, 2019 

Today the Moon transitions from Capricorn and into Aquarius midday moving us into more friendly and sociable territory.  For the most part, the energy of the day is good for getting together with friends or family and having fun.  Later in the day, the Moon meets up with Venus in early Aquarius, and here we have another warning about spending money more cautiously – especially if you are on a budget!  Whether it is impulse buying or overindulging, you could be tempted to overdo any number of things – spending money, eating or drinking too much, or even physical exertion. Just keep everything proportional to what is available to you energetically, and you will be fine!

Sunday, March 3, 2019

Moon square MarsToday you want to watch out for emotional irritability and irritation.  While this is not a good day to repress anger or upset, it is not a good day to explode outward at others either.  Instead, engage in positive ways of expressing yourself – exercise, writing in a journal, hiking, or whatever it is that eases that frustration you feel.  You may also be on the receiving end of someone else’s anger or upset today.  Be ready to walk away or count to 10 before you react.  It will save you from creating a huge response to something that was just a fleeting irritation.

That’s it for the Astrology for the week ahead.  I wish you all a stellar week!

Love, Janet

Weekly Astrology Forecast February 18-24

Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast

February 18-24, 2019

 

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

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

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

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

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

monday (3)

Monday, February 18, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

tuesday

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

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

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

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

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

wednesday

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

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

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

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

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

thursday

Thursday, February 21, 2019

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

5

Friday, February 22, 2019

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

Moon in Libra 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saturday, February 23, 2019 

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

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

Sunday, February 24, 2019

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

Here’s wishing you all a stellar week!

Love, Janet
