Hello world!

This site will bring you some interesting and timely posts about what is going on in the Heavens — I love studying astrology, and I enjoy passing on the information I have gleaned from the moving planets in aspect to the sun and moon and each other.  Even if you feel this kind of post isn’t for you — if you give it a try, you might find it amusing, informative, downright accurate, or just a good way to pass a couple of lazy minutes on your computer. 

I have found over the years that much of what goes on in the ether does affect the happenings here on planet Earth — much depends on the sign you were born under and what aspects are in your own personal natal chart.  You can get your natal chart free from many sites on the internet — and learning where your sun and moon are located, along with the sign that was rising at the time of your birth will give you a heads up as to what cycle you are now going through. 

There are many cycles that the planets bring to us, Saturn, for instance (I call it the “learning” planet — has a cycle of approximately 28 to 30 years) — by the time we are 30 we have experienced the planets influence in each house of our natal chart.  It’s no wonder that the Hippies of the 60’s quipped “Don’t trust anyone over 30″ — we are changed because of our having been through the many and varied, sometimes difficult lessons of Saturn throughout our charts.

Also there is a magnificent opposition from the planet Uranus at age 42 (give or take a year) that challenges us — can we say “mid-life crisis”?  This year is often fraught with changes that we might be less that anxious to have happen.  Yet the planet Uranus doesn’t bring a change unless it is going to build us a newer and stronger foundation.  It is part of the building blocks of our journey throughout this lifetimes path. 

We can accept and grow with the help of the Universal forces, or we can challenge the energies and find ourselves at odds with our true and natural path.  In astrology there is a saying “As above — so below” … this doesn’t mean we have no free will — it only shows us that by following the natural harmony of the galaxy, we can flourish and meet all of our expectations — or we can rale against the forces and be held accountable in many formidable ways.  The stars may impel, but they do not compel any actions or beliefs. 

The world is our oyster, there is so much for the taking, so much beauty, knowledge, fun and happiness to be garnered from our lifetime here, if we but choose to be aware and partake of its bounty.

I hope you will join me in opening up the mysteries and secrets of the Universe as we all travel on this tiny blue planet called Earth — it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get it right, we have the choice, the right, and the means to become our best selves, and to find our place in the Universe.  Lets all gear up and promise ourselves we will choose to become the ultimate human being we are meant to be — awesomeness is an option — let it be you!

Welcome fellow searchers for the truth — it is out there…

 

New Moon in Libra — September 24, 2014

Our New moon this month crests in the sign Libra at one degree, on September 24th at 1:14 AM EST (add one hour for DST). It seems after the Equinox we are ready to face the challenges of the new season with zeal and energy, and the Cardinal sign Libra will be egging us on to clean up, clear out, and unclutter our living space and our lives. We all seem to have too much “stuff” — sentimental, needed, enjoyed — all good — then there is the other “stuff” — clutter, old unused clothing, souvenirs, ancient keepsakes, baubles, old bill receipts, letters, “junk” — drawers, desks and closets filled to overflowing with no longer needed items.

Our Libra New Moon can help us cut through the trash and treasures, and more importantly will help us delineate between the two! Libra loves balance, beauty, neatness and simplicity. When we work with the sign Libra, we find our lives are more aligned and in tune with what we really need, and more importantly what we should toss, trash and jettison into the realm of oblivion. Remember how good it feels once you clean up your desk top, your closet, any area of chaos — what a burden is lifted off of your shoulders! It’s as if a wave of enlightenment swathes us with the ability to be free — free of those annoying areas of our life that are holding us back — making us lazy, and allowing us to just bob along on a tide of distraction and lethargy.

This time period may also allow us to evaluate our personal relationships, are there toxic people in your life — always putting you down and nay-saying your plans. It might be the right time to break away from those who always make you feel less than yourself. You know who they are — and it is your right to eliminate those who always bring you down. Make the tough decisions to clean up your personal life along with your physical world. It is time for a clean slate to be written upon, and only you should be writing the story of your own life! Make it your personal chronicle, your narrative, your own epic saga!

On the 25th (activated all month long) Jupiter in Leo trines Uranus in Aries — this is a positive dynamic duo with fiery energy and surprises in store! Especially if you have Planets in these signs at the 15 degree point. Look to your chart to see where the impact of this combination will bring opportunity and prospects. The energy of these Planets will last into October — enjoy the boldness and uniqueness of the awakened desires and ideas this aspect engenders.

We will have the added bonus of Pluto turning direct on the 22nd, allowing us to integrate all of the inner and outer knowledge garnered over the past several months, now able to be implemented in order to keep us moving forward on our true pathway here on Earth. Pluto in Capricorn is bringing us a more practical and sensible way of looking at our lives. We can live healthier, bring more harmony, and capture the elusive spirit of our entire being into stasis by listening with our hearts and minds to our physical bodies integrated with our spiritual life-force. Allow yourself a moment to really connect all of your senses, insights and perceptions in order to find your true self. Feel your body and mind connections as a physical regeneration to your psyche. Embrace the real you! Celebrate your uniqueness and immerse yourself in the essence of your own reality.

This months New Moon crests at 1:14 AM EST (add one hour for DST) — and this and the following day will be the best times to write out your affirmations, desires, wishes and dreams. Since the Moon is in the sign Libra we can use this sign’s need for balance and beauty to enhance our requests. You might be thinking of a new hair style, or complete makeover — and this New Moon can help. Perhaps you need to renew your living space with an updated look — you can get the help you need this month from those experts in the field. Also Libra rules marriages and relationships — this time span could work in your favor if you need to have a conversation about how you will move forward together. Balance, beauty and bounty can be yours with the help of the New Moon in Libra. Think carefully about your wants and needs, and balance the two in order to form a perfect affirmation that will enhance your life and the lives of your loved ones. Family and friends, companions and cohorts, partners and pals — all of these relationships can be made better with a few well-chosen words of comfort, caring and kindness. What can this Libra New Moon bring into your life — Love!

PS. Retrograde Mercury is in place from October 4th to the 25th in Scorpio and Libra, so make plans accordingly.

Autumnal Equinox — September 22, 2014

As the Sun moves into the sign Libra on the 22nd at 9:29 PM EST, we celebrate our Autumnal Equinox. Equinox means equal, and our day is supposed to be an even 12 hours of daylight and night — however here in New England we don’t get to have as many daylight hours, as our Sun dips early into the western sky shortening our day. If you live closer to the Equator you have a better chance of this equality of day and night. Still this day is a kind of reckoning, a look back at the production of our farms during the verdant Summer months, reaping the harvest of fruits and vegetables we have grown. Reflecting on how we spent our Summer — on vacation, remaining at work, or a little of both. Missing those lazy days of Sun with the heat that sent us to the beaches, lakes and ponds to cool our bodies and refresh our psyches. We yearn for a few more days of Sun and sand, another round of fun, to enjoy our outdoor activities just a little while longer.

But the inevitable reality is that we are on the verge of change — our seasonal Autumn will bring days of long shadows, cooler mornings and nights, riotous foliage of orange, gold, red and russet — punctuating the bluest of blue skies. The air filled with the new scents of fall, earthy, pungent and ripe with the tang of burning leaves that have carefully been raked off lawns. Sounds seem to be more acute in the frosty air — ducks and geese are flying overhead in vee-shaped patterns heading for warmer climes, honking and quacking to keep in touch with each other. Other birds are leaving too — grackles, robins, starlings, and the tiny hummingbirds will all be heading south. However we have found that our Carolina Wrens will stay with us all through the snowy winter, as do the Cardinals, Chickadees, Titmice, Goldfinch, Sparrows and Woodpeckers, keeping our back yard active and alive with life throughout the cold snowy months. Change — welcomed by some, disturbing to others — but inescapable for us all. Better to embrace what is coming, bow to the foreseeable future and prepare for the new challenges, the new obligations, the exciting adventures to come.

The Equinox have been celebrated for centuries throughout the world — depending on the area, there are harvest festivals or spring rituals, thanking the Gods for their bounty or praying for a better time to follow. The Pagans celebrate Magog in ceremony and invocation — but we all have our ways of commemorating this time of change. Farmer’s markets spring up offering their produce, there are festivals to celebrate the Moon, in every case there is the expectation of what is to come and perhaps a little anxiety about whether we will be up to the tasks at hand. Still the seasons come and go and we endure whatever befalls us with aplomb and grace.

The Equinox is the entryway into our holiday season — the children are back to school, but looking forward to the joyous celebrations to come — we are back on our workaday schedules and begin planning our busy shopping, cooking and gifting days ahead. The Equinox is the time of long shadows as the Sun slants further and further in the sky — the Earth looks and feels different now — we feel the chill in the air in the early morning hours. Refreshing, clean and clear, it’s apple picking time and we know that soon the wafting aroma of hot-baked apple pie will fill our senses. We recall the past and realize we have been here before — we have succeeded in traversing these changing times, and we will once again. Whatever comes we will face the issues with our usual “can-do” mentality. We will not only manage to endure — we will thrive!

A HEADS-UP for all those who find a Retrograde Mercury a bit of a struggle, the Planet will be in Retrograde mode from October 4th until October 25th 2014, in the signs Libra and Scorpio — make sure that any plans are made before this period, and if traveling, allow extra time for any glitches along the way. Also make sure communication areas are up and running smoothly, and your car has been checked for any issues. It is never a good time to sign contracts or buy new items — if something of this nature is unavoidable — double and triple check any legal or important items thoroughly to avoid upsetting surprises. Forewarned is as always forearmed!

Enjoy this Autumnal Equinox with Elan and grace — breathe in the freshening breezes of change and go forth with a sense of adventure, wonder, and curiosity. Allow yourself to be open to all new experiences and happenings — your bliss may be right around the corner — don’t miss out on what might prove to be the opportunity of a lifetime! There will be magic in the air and wonders to behold — Believe!

September’s Planetary Activity — Full Moon in Pisces – September 8, 2014

I am here at my desk, shaking my head and thinking “Where did the summer go?” Our few truly sunny and warm months have seemingly flown into the future and now fall beckons. Although we are experiencing a late waft of hot and steamy weather — the pool looks refreshing amid the falling leaves and acorns dropping like stones upon the unwary. Still there is an edge to the breeze, a slight hint of the coolness to come. The air smells different too — earthier, filled with the scent of the autumn flowers — the allergy-triggering ragweed pollen can be seen floating on the wind, and the summer blooms are fading, allowing the russet colors of asters and mums to take over the vivid and riotous display of petunias, impatiens, and begonias. The change of season often brings a feeling of loss, of sadness and displacement. However we soon begin to be refreshed by the burgeoning new colors of the autumn displays, the smell of burning leaves that have been carefully raked off of yellowing lawns. Our bodies respond to the chill in the night air, the early darkness of the sun lowering in the west as it dips precipitously and quickly behind the horizon. New chores await — warmer clothing must be brought out of storage, and those light and wispy cotton frocks are put away! The autumn is on its way — soon followed by the cold New England winter — we who live here choose to enjoy these passages of time — we embrace each nuance of each season. The Equinox will come — and our energy will be restored with the crisp air of autumn and with an infusion of hope for the future!

September may prove to be a very active month — it’s Full Moon cresting on the 8th at 16 degrees of Pisces at 8:38 PM EST (add one hour for DST). With Mars, Saturn and Neptune also in Water signs they will be in opposition or square to the Sun and Venus while they are transiting Virgo. This may bring up emotional issues for both men and women as the Full Moon approaches and crests! Opposite the Virgo Sun we are made aware that our feelings aren’t always appreciated by all we encounter. A lovely trine aspect between the Moon in Pisces and Saturn in Scorpio after the Full Moon crests may help to restore some semblance of balance — still we always must remember to keep our wits about us during the Full Moon time span and to deter any anger or upset that occurs with alacrity. Watch out for distracted drivers (which seem so prevalent now with cell phones and texting being done while at the drivers wheel) — let’s all try to get to our destinations safely by driving defensively! It is all too easy to allow our minds to drift off and become unaware of the activity surrounding us — driving is not the time to chat, text, or do anything other than drive purposefully.

As Venus enters Virgo on the 5th it will bring a more down-to-earth pragmatism to our relationships — we will begin to see our loved one in a more practical light. Also with Mercury’s transit of Libra most of this month we will be able to monitor our words in a balanced and even manner — we must tap into these aspects willingly to further our relationships with honesty and openness. The Planet Pluto will turn Direct on the 22nd and remain so until April of 2015, allowing the more positive vibrations of this Planet to assist us with our plans. While it has been Retrograde, we were more likely to seek inner sources of knowledge, now with its forward movement we can move outwardly with what we have learned and project our new-found knowledge into our plans and ideas for the future. Pluto in Capricorn is above all more aware of our shortcomings and will help us move ahead in a measured way. Bring your deepest dreams into the light, ponder your next moves carefully, and find those who will be able to help you bring them to fruition.

The New Moon will crest on the 24th, at 1:14 AM EST at 1 degree of Libra bringing some balance back into the picture — however earlier in the month there are some frustrating aspects between Mercury and Uranus that may trigger some upsets. We may have to keep our thoughts to ourselves and not talk about our personal business. If you need some financial advice, seek out a professional to discuss your future holdings. You may feel that you are experiencing a heightened and clearer sense of where you want to go or where your personal journey is leading you. Be aware of your insights and see if you can’t incorporate your new ideas into your current lifestyle. Mars and Venus aspects to Neptune can be confusing and bring some over-the-top ideas that you will have to allow time and common sense to help clear up.

Jupiter will be in positive aspect almost all month long with Uranus — especially at the end of the month, so we will have energy and a fiery enthusiasm for all of our plans. Just be aware that although this kind of aspect can bring unexpected moments of good luck, they are often fleeting and we have to be open to take advantage of whatever good will is coming our way. Keep a positive outlook, and draw those folks to you who have your best interests at heart. Forgive the naysayers who try to bring you down, and don’t allow them space in your realm. Believe in your abilities to forge your own future with the strength of your love, honesty and true grit. Allow yourself to “see” your future unfold with all positive outcomes. Thoughts have power, validity and strength — feel the power in you and work with your innate intelligence and vivacity. You can be the hero in your own saga — believe in you!

As the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd, we become aware of how good life can be — how abundant is our Earth. How beautiful our lives can be with our ability to enjoy the bounty that is so freely given — the incredible miracles that happen every day bringing us joy! An ample harvest, a plethora of the finest produce, clean and clear runnels of water coursing throughout the land, a new born babe bringing happiness and delight, renewing our commitment to our humanity and our species. We are blessed with the wonders of our realm every day. Immerse yourself into the rhythm of the Earth, of the Galaxy and of the Universal harmony to truly live each moment to the full.

Allow this month of seasonal change to refresh your body, your mind and your spirit with the ultimate enjoyment of what it means to be human — feel your humanity and embrace every fiber of your being. You are the wonder of the Universe — Be!

New Moon Reminder — August 25, 2014

Tomorrow is the day to write out your affirmations and wishes with the influence of the New Moon in Virgo at 2 degrees of the sign! We all have the sign Virgo in our charts and it behooves us to find out where it lives so we can best use this energy for our betterment. The sign Virgo allows us to perfect any area with its need for accuracy and its ability for finding better ways in which to attend to any problem. Draw the New Moon energy while it is in Virgo to dig deep into any difficulty or issue you may want to solve or change. With Virgo’s perspicacity you will be able to open all of the hidden and confusing areas that now befuddle you.

Virgo loves to create order and neatness, it enjoys solving puzzles that others cannot fathom, and it is that part of our chart that keeps us creating a safe and secure place where we can find our own personal well-being. Where Virgo lives we will be aware of our health, our vitality and our physical persona. Here we can bring our best game to keep us safe and well and in-touch with our inner being. Use the forces of our Galaxial surroundings to improve your time here on Earth.

Since the New Moon crests at 9:13 AM EST — all day will be advantageous to write out your affirmations and wishes. Take the time to believe in yourself and the importance of your being here, now, at this time and in this place. Be outrageous, bold and single-minded in your quests — allow yourself to stretch your imagination to push the envelope of possibilities as far as imaginable. Dream big dreams and don’t hold anything back! You deserve to be here, to be happy, to have love, and to reach your goals.

The quality of your life is in your own hands — bring your A-game to the fore and reach for the stars! You are a karmic child of the Universe — you are a unique miracle of Nature — allow yourself the blessings of wonder, awe, respect and hope. Amaze yourself — soar into the infinite heights of your bliss!

New Moon in Virgo — August 25, 2014

The Virgo New Moon crests at 2 degrees of the sign at 9:13 AM EST (add one hour for DST). As the Summer months wane, our Virgo New Moon spurs us on to awaken from our vacation-like stupor and urges us to begin to prepare for our busy autumn season ahead. Children are trying to get the last few weeks of school-free fun packed to the full with outside activities and waterside sport, and parents are beginning to think about the returning students and their needs. New shiny shoes, warm sweaters for the cooler mornings at the bus stops, backpacks filled with new pencils, crayons and notebooks — (OK, I’m a little out of date, let’s add iPads, calculators, tablets and phones). Alas — I long for the simpler times when the most advanced technology was a ball-point pen! Yes — I remember inkwells on our desks!

College-aged students are carefully packing up bedding, TV’s, microwaves and charging all of their technological “necessities”. Such a different scene from just a few years ago. Still — exciting times ahead — new adventures — friends — schedules and opportunities.

Our precise and practical Virgo New Moon will help to create just the right atmosphere for getting all of our ducks in a row. Virgo is above all pragmatic, and a stickler for not forgetting any necessary detail. List making is NOT optional — ticking off each item is thrilling for our Virgo friends as they complete their chores to their very high standards of perfection.

Their mantra might just be “If you’re going to do something, do it right the first time” — sigh! Many of us just cannot live up to the heights of Virgo’s ideals. Still we all need that impetus to get us going and to make sure we don’t forget anything really necessary. Our Virgo components will insure that all of the details are completed in ample time.

But let’s not forget this is a fun time of growth and expansion, and Jupiter in Leo is beaming its golden rays down upon us bringing big ideas, confidence, and a sense of beginning a new quest. A new journey beckons us with expanding our minds, our psyches, and our possibilities for growth. We look forward with anticipation and a bit of angst at starting anew — our schools filled with eager students, new classes, new and old friends, teachers, professors and schedules. We breathe in the scent of newly polished and varnished floors, freshly painted walls, and clean and empty desks — ours to do with as we will. Heady with the excitement of these moments we immerse ourselves into the fray of crisp new clothes, newly sharpened pencils, iPad. tablets, but especially that thrill of a new beginning, a new chance, a new day, month, year of learning, growing, and finding your tempo in the larger scheme of life.

While still in the midst of our last Summery month here in New England, there is optimism, vitality and a sense that time is on our side. As the lazy days of sunshine and warmth are waning, we seem to appreciate more the short time we have for our outdoor activities before the chilly autumn, and eventually the frigid cold of winter. These special days of sunshine and clear blue skies beckon us to enjoy each and every moment we have before the winds of change sweep in, and we must start our preparations for the long colder months ahead.

The New Moon in the sign Virgo is just perfect for us now — allowing us to tap into the precise and efficient aura that are all things Virgoan. Time to clear out the closets, clean up the summertime detritus and attend to the tasks at hand — especially as we near the end of this month. Mars our Planet of energy and passion connects with Saturn in Scorpio on the 25th and will tend to enhance the already frenetic energy of the New Moon — try to use this combination to clear up any issues that have been long-standing and use your words carefully to say exactly what you mean. Sincerity will go a long way in easing any angst about those difficult conversations. Be aware of the feelings of those around you and try to put yourself in their place. I am never averse to a big hug that brings warmth, heartfelt love, and kindness along with it. Chiron the healer in the sign Pisces will be within close trine aspect to Mars and Saturn on the 25th adding another layer of caring and the ability to heal.

Since our New Moon is in the sign Virgo — our affirmations, wishes and desires will be better served if in line with all of those things that Virgo so enhances. We might find this a good time to revamp our diets and health routines — after a long summer of barbeques and burgers — it is probably time to wean ourselves away from these tasty treats and start adding those fresh veggies from our gardens or our local produce purveyors. Find a new way to spice up your exercise routine — take a brisk walk at lunchtime, wake up a half-hour early to get a short workout in to jumpstart your day, be aware of your posture and your daily activity levels. Virgo also is a sign of service to others — perhaps you can find an outlet in volunteering or mentoring that will bring you satisfaction. Of course, anything is on the table when wishing on the New Moon — especially since the Moon is in Virgo — be as precise as you can in writing out your affirmations, name names, write out end dates, add any detail that will augment your plea. Be bold and daring in expanding your ideas and keep positive thoughts while writing your list. Breathe == meditate — feel — taste — see — yourself receiving your dreams come true! Believe in your innate power to change your life and the lives of your loved ones for the better — it is in your hands, your heart, and your spirit to influence your life throughout this journey here on Earth. Begin now — with the energy of the Virgo New Moon helping you to manifest the changes you want to make. Simply put — the Force is with you — in you — and awaiting your call.

The best times to write out your affirmations is all day on the 25th and the 24 hours that follow — this is the optimal time — but the energy persists for the next few days. Give yourself the gift of hope, wonder, and revelation — be!

Slo-Mo World — Staying in the Now — Jone Victoria — November 23, 2008

Discovering the ability to stay in the now, the practice of total awareness, gives you a one-way ticket to the Slo-Mo World.

Years ago my karate instructor used to say in class, “Focus, stay in the moment.” I would furtively glance at the clock and think, “Class for twenty more minutes, then off to Eldio’s for pizza and beer.” As I picked myself up off the mat, after he kicked my legs out from under me, it was obvious I was Not in the moment.

Staying in the now is work. It means being mindful of what is going on in your life at that moment. As I type these words, I’m not allowing my mind to drift and think about the bedroom I need to clean or the smell of brownies, warm from the oven, calling my name. Oops! The now is now gone. That was quick.

When you eat a meal, focus on the food you’re consuming, think about who grew the food and mindfully chew each bite. Silently bless the farmer’s efforts so you can enrich your body. If you use paper napkins, think of the trees that were sacrificed as you wipe your mouth from the food stuck on your lips that was grown by the farmers. You can see how this practice could become a meditative version of There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.

My initial reaction to staying in the now was akin to psycho-babble. Then I did it.

If you feel like you’re being pulled in too may directions and not being productive try staying in the now. I challenge you to try it for one day, heck — make it one hour — and let me know your results. Extraneous thoughts will be a thing of the past. Quiet your mind and enjoy your renewed status as a resident of Slo-Mo World, where the only thing that matters is the current moment.

Residency Application for Slo-Mo World:

Everything you do is mindful.

If you are eating, eat.

If you are reading, read.

If you are talking, talk.

If you are listening, listen — don’t talk or think about what you are going to say next.

Be mindful of what you see, hear, touch, and taste.

Although Jone became a learned teacher and mentor to so many, she also had to learn the basics of enhancing one’s abilities in the moment. All of us can employ this method to begin to truly live our lives optimally. Using Jone’s method to get in touch with your inner and outer being is so important to enhancing every minute of your day. It becomes rote after a while and you don’t even notice that you are practicing this way of life — you are aware and into every emotion, touch, taste, sensation — and you are alive and living your life to the fullest each and every moment. Immerse yourself in the Slo-Mo World and find your bliss!

Full Moon in Aquarius — August 10, 2014

Our Aquarius Full Moon this month is at 18 degrees of the sign and crests at 1:09 PM EST (add one hour for DST). This opposition is always a mighty one as the Sun in Leo is not prone to any naysayers. The Leo Sun is bolstered by Mercury, Jupiter, and on the 12th Venus riding along in the sky in the sign Leo. Our Aquarius Moon will try to stir up some controversy — but if we are aware of these tactics, we can avoid embroiling ourselves in the fray. Aquarius loves the unique, quirky, outside-the-box activities that arouse high emotions and bring a breath of fresh air into the realm. However, this isn’t for everyone! We all enjoy that frisson of energy that makes us take notice that something special is in the air — but not all of us want to face changes in our lives. There are those who actually try to avoid any change or new direction at all costs.

Aquarius is a fixed-air sign — but somehow seems to have a duality that borders on the mutable signs ability to switch course at a moments notice — although — anything learned at a young age — work ethics, truth telling, caring, being loyal — all will be entrenched in their persona. So although not as flexible as the mutable signs, we do have a stimulating character that is willing to take a chance on their own intelligence, learned lessons, and wisdom from within. They have a natural instinct about what is right for themselves — and are not willing to compromise a whole lot. Loyal, caring, dutiful, hard-working and loving, our Aquarian friends, family or acquaintances bring a unpredictable and perhaps unusual outlook for us to ponder. They bring a joyous love of life, a sense of adventure, and a need to accept the curious or eccentric. They are as awesome as they think they are — perhaps bringing some of their opposite sign Leo’s ego along for their ride here on Planet Earth.

This Full Moon period will enhance our need for expressing ourselves and creating our own unique realm — we will want to employ all of our abilities into making our life more exciting and rewarding. Offering our help to others in need or volunteering for some charitable campaign will appeal to us now. Use this time frame in a positive manner and you will find a satisfying fulfillment. Also allowing your creative juices to flow — bringing out your innate artistry and skills will find a fertile field that will nourish your creativity.

On the down side of our Aquarian Full Moon — there could be some previous unseen prejudices that come to light — creating a rift between friends and partners. Take the time to monitor your words and only then, if you can speak calmly and without hurting someone’s feelings say your piece. But be aware your ideas may not be popular among your peers. The unexpected can always occur during a Full Moon period, so our usual caveats are in place, drive defensively, avoid conflict or those who seem to be looking for trouble, and stay away from places that cater to volatile or over-the-top behavior.

Learn to savor the various transits throughout the month — find your own rhythm within the Universal harmony and flow of life here on Earth. As you ascend to a new understanding of your own need for balance, attention, approval and love, remember to give forth the same empathy that you yourself expect. Become one with the ethereal synchrony of the Planets and you will find your own place in the karmic scheme of things.

Allow yourself the ability of being present every moment of your day — inhale the precious essence of your own life! To live long is an exquisite gift — to live well is a joy of priceless measure! Peace!
