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…

 

Can’t Sleep? — Jone Victoria — January 31, 2009

I was reading a friend’s blog and she posted that falling asleep was a problem. She’s having nightmares, and her doctor thinks it may be post traumatic stress syndrome from a car accident she was in a few months ago.

It’s miserable when you can’t sleep. You toss. Turn. Look at the clock. Read a book. Shut the light off. Pulling your covers around you, anxiety continues to build with the need to sleep, as the clock advances in hours.

Sleep is essential to our general well-being. Sleeplessness can signal depression, anxiety, difficulty in focusing and memory loss. Studies have shown it can even contribute to retaining weight.

One thing noticeable in self-hypnosis techniques is the simplicity of the command from mind to body. The mind is the most important thing in the body, and the body cannot do anything without the mind.

Anyone suffering from sleep deprivation, due to anxiety, can try this exercise.

First eliminate as much light as possible from your room. Cover LED”s with a cloth or turn them away from your sight. Light, no matter how slight, signals your brain to wake up.

Once in bed, lie in a comfortable position.

Do not change this position or move your body once comfortable.

Relax your breathing, inhaling for a count of 4, exhaling for a count of 8.

Focus your attention on your feet and affirm, “My feet are relaxed. I’m releasing all tension from this area of my body and becoming twice as relaxed as I was before.”

Move your attention to your ankles. “My ankles are relaxed. I’m releasing all tension from this area of my body and becoming twice as relaxed as I was before.”

Move your attention to your calves. “My calves are relaxed. I’m releasing all tension from this area of my body and becoming twice as relaxed as I was before.”

Once you have relaxed a part of your body do not move or readjust your position.

Slowly move this same focus and dialogue up your body to your knees, thighs, hips, waist, chest, arms, neck and head.

I have used this exercise when I’ve had to sleep on planes, in noisy hotel rooms, and with a full party going on in my home. It works.

Pleasant dreams.

It seems I’ve heard so many people saying lately that they are having trouble sleeping nowadays — our jobs have become increasingly complex and/or we are doing the job of 3 people. Folks with little ones have the added responsibility of getting their children to day-care or school on time, and possibly not getting enough sleep when someone has a cold or a tummy-ache. Also — work doesn’t stop when one gets home. There are always chores to be done, sometimes we bring our work home, and most of us want to enjoy some family time, and possibly alone time to just veg out.

There is also the stress of commuting to work — in traffic jams — in intemperate weather — and with all those drivers who insist on cutting in, drive too fast, and tailgate! Every day we are overwhelmed by details, schedules, and minutiae that bombards us with a seemingly never-ending cacophony of noise and clatter. Is it any wonder that most of us don’t get enough sleep. As Jone points out — sleeping is our “reboot” for the next day’s work, worries, and tribulations. If we are shortchanged by not getting enough sleep, our minds are not equipped to handle those decisions needed to cope with our everyday tasks, or the speedy responses we may need in a crisis. We are not fully charged for the challenges of our day-to-day lives.

I’d like to think that this exercise will help everyone that needs it — indeed — it might be just the solution some of you are looking for. There’s nothing to lose by giving it a try — and as my Mother used to say when tucking my brother and I into our beds — “Sleep tight”!

 

Finding Love – Jone Victoria — April 9, 2009

There is a great deal of loneliness on our planet. I’ve read blogs of intelligent, funny, loving people who are wishing, and a hoping, and a praying for someone to come into their life, be a companion, and share their life.

While the argument can be made that some people are meant to learn the lesson of being alone in this lifetime, I believe that if you have clear intention, and focus on visualization you can attract a loving partner to you.

The Law of Attraction states that you attract to yourself that which you think about in an intent-full way.

Affirmations are a good place to start. You need to write this affirmation several times each day. When writing these words, focus on what you are writing, concentrate on each word and do not allow your thoughts to wander. Do this each day for a minimum of 60 days and keep it simple.

I am an irresistible magnet attracting the perfect person to me.

“Perfect” means, unattached, non-addictive personality, for your higher good, etc.

In addition to the written affirmation, this next suggestion is highly effective.

Find a quiet time when you will be uninterrupted from any disturbances and taking a piece of paper, begin to list everything that you are looking for in a partner. If you want a non-smoker, list that. If you want someone who has a great sense of humor, dances, cooks, financially stable, list those traits.

When making your list of the “perfect” person, it is important to list each and every thing you can think of. Does Height, weight, physical looks matter to you? Be specific. The Universe will answer the call with as much effort as you put into your list.

An adequate list will have approximately 38 – 65 traits listed. If you list that you want a “rich man”, remember that rich has many meanings; rich in generosity, rich in personality, rich in knowledge. If you are referring to wanting to attract a financially rich person, ask yourself what is more important, a financially rich partner or a Spiritually rich partner? That old adage, you get what you wish for, has deep rooted consequences, so be detailed in writing your list.

If you want, or do not want children – list that. If you want someone morally ethical – list that. Do not assume that the Universe will know what you are seeking.

It may take several days to complete your list, but once you do, sign it and write the date on it. Put it in an envelope and mail it to yourself, but don’t open it. Keep it safe.

Don’t discuss the list or share it with anyone. Allow the Universe to take your heart-felt intentions and have faith that it will match it with your heart’s desire.

I was looking for a Valentines Day message to post and when I opened my “Jone” book — it opened to this article she wrote so many years ago. I don’t know how well it works, indeed — it seems labor intensive, and will take some soul-searching for those who want to give it a try. I’m guessing that if someone is truly sincere and willing to put their heart and soul into writing out a list of their desires, it will eventually work! I do believe in pure intentions and in writing out ones wishes and desires, because our thoughts have weight, value and a karmic connection to the Universal ether and harmony.

I sincerely hope for all who are looking for a soulmate or loving companion, that this exercise may bring about a positive and loving relationship in the near future, that will be exactly the one true-love for you. This world can be a lonely and difficult environment — and having a caring and loving partner can make all the difference in moving us toward our ultimate evolutionary pinnacle. Good luck in your love quest!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

Lady Venus Enters Aries — February 3rd 2017 — Retrogrades on March 4th 2017

Of late, Lady Venus has been moving through the signs rather quickly, but once she enters Aries on the 3rd of the month at 10:51 AM EST, She begins to slow down, and will begin to Retrograde on March 4th. Lady Venus will Stay in Aries but return to late Pisces in early April, then goes stationary direct on April 14th and completes her stay in Aries until finally moving into Taurus on June 5th.

When Lady Venus is in any one sign for such an extended time, we can use her power in that particular sign in order to liven our romances, our ability to connect with vibrant folks, and to focus on something that our hearts really want to pursue. Lady Venus isn’t totally a happy camper in Aries, the passionate vibes of this Cardinal Mars ruled sign have a tendency to overwhelm Venus’ more sensitive nature. However, once ensconced in the sign for a while, She begins to acknowledge the energy and vigor She can tap into whilst transiting Aries. Our delicate and compassionate Lady Venus suddenly becomes a warrior for the underdog, a champion of womankind and a force to be reckoned with in any pursuit she tackles, especially if her heart is involved! Indeed, our Lady Venus transforms while in this long stay in Aries and finds her inner heroine, her dynamic persona, and her passionate love. Lady Venus is no shrinking violet in Aries — She becomes our Woman for all Seasons — our Madonna with Attitude — our Matriarch of the Family! Smart, motivated, full of energy, feeling her most intense inner spirit, finding her macho identity, and realizing that She can be anything She desires! Watch out for the amazing and magical transformation as our sweet and caring Lady Venus feels the power within her grasp in Aries and begins to use the potency, dynamism and supremacy of this Mars ruled Cardinal sign.

We will see a different side of our usual calm and compassionate Lady Venus as this transit progresses — as the power of Aries becomes Her own, Lady Venus is metamorphosed and impassioned with a fiery masculine potency! Of course, Lady Venus cannot lose herself completely in this home-base of machismo — no — She will still maintain a sense of decorum, of lady-like etiquette and feminine demeanor! Good taste is always part of our Lady Venus wherever She finds herself, but there will be a more pronounced ability to bring her “A”-game to the fore. Look to the Zodiac House where Aries lives, and there you will find a preponderance of activity while Venus in Aries resides within. If you have some project, goal or dream to rev up the activities of that House, now is the time to push for your agenda.

The Planet Jupiter in Libra goes Direct on the 6th in the wee hours of the morning, we can begin to use this forward moving giant to help us get back on track if things have gone awry lately. Along with Lady Venus, we also have Mars in Aries for the next month or so, and this combination can bring us a surfiet of energy to get things done. Feel the power of these personal Planets in transit in order to connect to that inner spirit of commitment, duty, and obligation to yourself and to your loved ones.

On the 9th the Moon connects with Venus at lunchtime, bringing good friends together and a lively and emotional connection that will last all day. Later on, the Sun in good aspect to Uranus continues the good feelings and makes you believe in your journey and yourself. On the 14th (Happy Valentine’s Day!) the Moon spurs Venus to start the day with good feelings and loving thoughts, and a Mercury connection with Neptune later in the morning creates an atmosphere of loving messages and a heady feeling of spiritual connection! After midnight on the 18th, Venus might tweak us to seek someone outside-the-box — this may be exciting but probably short lived,  enjoy the moment! On the 23rd Venus and Mercury spar in the late evening, don’t let a discussion get out of hand — it won’t be that important in the morning when Venus shines her light on the situation and all is well once again. Mars conjunct Uranus on the 26th after the dinner hour may bring rash actions or decisions — cool your jets and let it go! On the 27th Mars opposes Jupiter during the rush hour so don’t respond to distracted drivers or those who seem to be in a hurry — keep cool and you’ll be so much better off. In the evening of the 28th, the Moon and Venus join up to bring a lively end to this short month that will be just the beginning of our journey with Lady Venus in Aries — enjoy the excitement, but hang on —  it may be a bumpy, frivolous, and capricious ride!

Hint — find your Lady Venus in Aries at any sporting event (maybe the Super Bowl), driving a red sports car, running her own company, enjoying and or shopping for red wine, blushing when asked a personal question, laughing too loudly, at a Valentine’s party, wearing red (especially high heels), having her nails painted bright red, working on her car, painting her front door red, bringing chocolates to work, eating in an ethnic restaurant (specializing in HOT spicy food), at the race track or casino, on a girl’s night out, bringing red roses to her Mom, taking Pilates, organizing the local PTA, reading the latest red-hot novel, and looking for someone strong and resilient enough to handle her dynamic personality!

 

 

February’s Astrological Activity — 2017

February will be an active month with a Lunar Eclipse on the 10th in the sign Leo at 22 degrees at 7:33 PM EST– this dramatic sign will bring us some over-the-top activity that will keep us on edge for a while, yet after this phase of the Moon has passed we will be able to take a deep breath and realize it wasn’t that onerous and perhaps some clarity came through to help solve an ongoing issue. The Solar Eclipse is on the 26th in the sign Pisces  at 8 degrees at 9:58 AM EST — conjunct Neptune at 11 degrees, will spur our  imaginations and we will find ourselves seeking more creativity and spirituality in order to solve the issues we are facing now, the downside might be that a dream we’ve been holding on to might be shown to be totally impractical. However, the New Moon also fires up Mars-Uranus-Jupiter energies for the better. Use the energies of both these magnificent aspects to enhance the meaning of your life. If your birthday is near either of these dates you will be starting a new Lunar or Solar cycle — this revitalization will help you find answers to old issues and will bring you new opportunities. There are many sides to Eclipses, and what will manifest in your chart will depend on which Zodiac House position it will be cresting within, also whether or not it will be connecting to other Planets in your chart.

It will be advantageous through February 3rd to get your message across — on the 3rd, Venus enters Aries bringing a new energy into the mix. On the 6th Jupiter in Libra will turn Retrograde in the early hours of the day until turning direct on June 9th, making us think carefully about what it is we want to share. Don’t be too trusting or open with new acquaintances — bide your time in getting to know them better. We can however begin to realize that we are more able to develop more of our own personality, we will begin to know our own belief system better in order to create our own moral compass. It is usually better to make any big decisions the week after a Lunar Eclipse (February 10th in Leo) as you may find new information that will alter your ideas. The Solar Eclipse degree of 22 Pisces, on the 26th will be energized for 9 to 12 months — on the 28th Mars triggers the degree of the Eclipse, so be careful driving, in any sport, and put off surgery if you can until a later date.

February to March will witness a stellium (a cluster of Planets in both Pisces and Aries) — this area of your chart will be the focus of much activity. Having the first and last signs of the Zodiac in such close connection brings much activity to those Zodiac Houses in which they appear! Also, if you have a Planet or Planets in those Houses there will be more intense ongoings. These stelliums will impact us in different ways — Aries is all about energy, starting projects, and moving quickly (sometimes without proper planning). Pisces is more laid-back — enhancing our spiritual side — making us dig deep into our psyches in order to clarify our goals. Together there will be a push/pull of activity that may make life a bit intense — the answer to using these differing powerhouses effectively is to breathe — look at any opportunity, situation, goal — and carefully judge your next move — no knee-jerk decisions until all the facts have been explored. Use your intuition and inner spirit to find those deepest desires you wish to come to fruition — and try to blend the divine with the mundane. In other words — use the spiritual and the pragmatic sides of your persona in order to allow the Universe to bestow it’s magic upon you with the down-home practicality and common-sense with which you were born. Also impacted will be those Zodiac Houses that hold Virgo and Libra (the opposite side of the chart) — any Houses with Planets will be opposite the Aries/Pisces stellium! Be sure to look at your chart to see if you have a Planet that will come into opposition with the stellium as there will be an effect for some time. Knowing what your chart shows can help you prepare for any opportunity or happenstance that comes along.

Mars in Aries will meet up with Uranus near the end of the month creating a heady amount of energy being expelled into the ether, along with the Uranus/Saturn trine we should be able to use this blast of power to revitalize our objectives and realize that there are wonderful opportunities if we look for them. Be aware of the inspiring messages you get from those around you and be ready to take advantage of any positive activity that will spur you on your way to achieving your highest goals. You can use the inventive mind-set of Mercury after it enters Aquarius on the 7th to enhance your creative thinking and writing.  You will be able to think outside-the-box in order to come up with new and original ideas that will bring a welcome ability to further your success.

On the 9th the Sun in good aspect to Uranus in the early evening may bring an interesting dinner companion, conversation will be stimulating and full of vitality! Enjoy this enchanting time span and you may be making a new best friend. The morning of the 11th finds the Sun in excellent aspect to Jupiter, this could be just the lucky break you’ve wanted. Use your intuition in order to fulfill a long dreamed of goal. Around lunch time on the 16th you seem to have the answers that everyone wants — your mind is sharp and you can express yourself with ease. The Sun enters Pisces on the 18th bringing our compassionate and creative side to the fore and allowing us to share our talents with others of like mind. This theme continues into the 21st when you feel optimistic and may lunch with a friend who has some interesting ideas for you to follow. Mercury enters Pisces on the 25th enhancing our dreams and bringing us unusual and perhaps spiritual messages from otherworldly realms. It enhances the New Moon in Pisces on the 26th with poetic thoughts and perhaps communication from a friend we haven’t heard from in some time. During the morning rush hours of the 27th Mars in conflict with Jupiter might make for a long commute — stay calm — breathe and know you will be a winner! A Moon/Venus/Neptune connection ends our month with good feelings and the intuitive imagination to know you are on the right pathway.

March should prove to be another interesting month with the Aries/Pisces stellium  still in play — as Confucius said “May you live in interesting times” — it seems to me that we are indeed!

Peace

 

 

 

 

New Moon Reminder — January 28th 2017

If you haven’t written out your affirmations yet for the New Moon in Aquarius — the good news is you still have time to get them into the ether! Since the New Moon crested at 7:07 PM EST last night — there is still all day today to write out your wishes! Don’t miss out on the opportunity the Universe gives to us each month to engage with the energy and dynamism of the Galaxy in order to improve our own lives here on Earth.

Simply take a few minutes to think about what would help you at this moment in time and write out your request in simple but clear language in order to allow your thoughts to enter the magnificent harmony of the ether where they can be manifested into your reality. Thoughts have weight and power when respired into the atmosphere — center yourself in a quiet spot — tune out the usual cacophony that rages in your conscious mind — breathe in to the count of 4 and out to the count of 8 with easy breaths — and begin to write your list. Closing your eyes in between each wish can allow you to “see” more clearly how each affirmation will flow into the next.

Give it a try — it’s free — easy — and time tested! Good Luck!

Mars Enters Aries — January 28th 2017

Mars will be in his glory on the day he enters his home sign of Aries on January 28th at 12:39 AM EST — being in sensitive and illusive Pisces really tried his soul — although his time there brought out  his  deep-seated compassion, a change from his usual macho demeanor. Still being warm, considerate and caring isn’t his idea of his true persona of being the patriarch, the leader, and the stony-faced hero of myth! We all know that within Mars character there is a side that is softer, kinder and more gentle — however — Mars prefers his outwardly macho facade when facing the world — indeed — Mars enjoys his blustering, boldness and brashness — but most of all his ability to be strong, brave, and valiant when the occasion calls for stamina and determination. In Aries, Mars feels heroic, he acts the champion, and he relishes his superhero guise — A God and a Man for all — our anchor and our passion, our hero and our champion, our strength and our courage! Where Mars lives in your chart is the area where you may be the most passionate, devout, fervent and resolute — but beware of being too bombastic and overbearing.

Of course, there are also other undesirable aspects of our Mars in Aries indeed, a quick temper, an inability to be thwarted when there is something he wants now — and sometimes he is not able to let go of anger and frustration very easily. When Mars isn’t happy he really isn’t happy, and everyone will know of his wrath — he wants what he wants when he wants it — period. This facet of Mars indignation and entitlement isn’t a pretty picture — however, blended with his fierce love of family, country and truth — we can allow some leeway in letting him rage and bellow when things aren’t going his way. Mars rules those in the military, who need boldness and courage, all those who work with their hands and bodies in dangerous occupations — the physical movements we do during our work-outs, any occupation that requires a brave and hardy soul. Mars in Aries rules surgery, the face and head — often any injury to this area has a Mars component within the chart that can be seen — also rules the sense of taste — perhaps that’s why some with a strong Mars in their chart can manage hot and spicy foods more that others! We all have Mars in our charts somewhere and that is where our courage and passion lives. Without a Mars component in our lives we would live a less intense, fervent and loving life.

Mars meets up with the Aries Moon on the 31st in the evening bringing some minor upset to the end of the month — take a deep breath before taking any action — chill out if you can. With the Full Moon in Leo on the 10th of February (Lunar Eclipse) the energies expelled by this aspect will last for many months, however, Mars in Aries responds on the 11th with a gentle connection with Neptune in Pisces in the evening bringing some action impelled by pure spirit and intuition. This blending will connect one’s consciousness with the truth of the soul, listening to your inner guru will provide the right answers. The midnight hours of the 21st finds the Sun challenging Mars for prominence — don’t allow your need to be right, overshadow the prospect of settling a disagreement with respect and deference to an older if not wiser co-worker. Sometimes being right just isn’t enough of a reason to keep insisting on doing it your way! Back down and let the chips fall where they may — and when you are proven to have had the right solution — be gracious in accepting an apology. Again on the 22nd — Mars is in conflict with Pluto — this combo has the explosive ability to destroy a relationship or partnership — use self-discipline and wait until the intensity of the situation has settled down before you let your position be known. The evening of the 21st and early morning of the 22nd could be extremely frustrating and potentially dangerous. The 24th finds us in a disruptive situation in the early evening that lasts several hours — try to express yourself without hurling angry comments. You can’t regret what you don’t say! The 26th finds Mars meeting up with Uranus creating a somewhat unexpected source of anger, danger or risk — watch your back, or you may be delighted to find a creative way to correct a past problem. The rush hour on the 27th has Mars in opposition to Jupiter in Libra, allowing some challenges to appear, try to be humble when you win out over a competitor — be gracious and enjoy your victory in silent elation. Mars moves on to enter Taurus on March 9th bringing yet another facet to Mars complex persona. Use this Mars in Aries time to proceed with your most ardent goals — and you will have energy, boldness and passion on your side.

Mars in Aries Love Style — of course there will be passion, ardor and over-the-top intensity with anyone who has Mars in Aries — less so patience, calmness and romance! Being involved with a Mars in Aries lover will take a plethora of tolerance in order to keep up with the energy and constant movement of these individuals. They usually won’t enter your life subtlety, if they are attracted to you — you will know it in no uncertain terms. If anything, you might be a bit overwhelmed by their intensity and desire! Not for the faint-of-heart, it takes a strong and willing companion to engage in a relationship with our stalwart Mars in Aries persona. You may meet at a sporting event, on the ski slopes, at the Indy 500, wherever there is action, there you will find our Mars in Aries folks. Also the military, police, or any security force will be heavy on the Mars qualities that are needed for these fields. Construction work, the steel industry, body builders, and any job that requires physical strength and dexterity are common areas for a Mars in Aries to find their career. If there seems to be a theme of strength, energy, courage, and boldness — you’re right — our Mars in Aries are movers and shakers — they make themselves known and are willing to put themselves in harms way to protect others. Truly honorable and mighty in their beliefs, and love of family and country.

On a personal level — our Mars in Aries will need constant input in keeping busy and engaged in a relationship. They are constantly moving both physically and mentally — and need the stimulation of new and interesting venues in order to feel that they are in command and doing good work. A Mars in Aries will always be deeply devoted to his family, friends and acquaintances — ever ready to be there for anyone in need they also become paramedics, EMT’s, and enter other medical fields like physical therapy, and rehabilitation specialists, personal trainers, coaches and mentors for the young.

Sharing life with a Mars in Aries companion will never be boring, will have lots of passion and love, will keep life interesting if in constant motion, and will be loving and loyal. It will take some adjustment to learn to evolve with a Mars in Aries, but worth the effort, when what you want is a forever dynamo who will cherish you throughout your life.

 

 

 

 

New Moon in Aquarius — January 27th 2017

Our New Moon is in the sign Aquarius at 8 degrees and crests at 7:07 PM EST — any one whose birthday is on or near this date will be starting a new Lunar Cycle, opening opportunities for emotional growth and compassion. This date also heralds the start of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster — a year that heralds good business and health. However, Rooster’s must be diligent in their work habits, stick to their agendas and should try to face East when on interviews, or bargaining for things — also helpful if their beds face East during this year!

Jupiter in Libra will be opposite Uranus in Aries, keeping us a bit on edge and bringing some unexpected challenges and/or opportunities — we may be questioning our relationships, finding a way to bring about some positive changes in our ability to feel more free, and find we are attracting some interesting suitors. Uranus in Aries also trines Saturn in Sagittarius — again bringing a need for our own space, allowing us to see the possibilities of future growth and prosperity. Blending the practicality of Saturn and the brilliance and unpredictability of Uranus can show us the way to new interpretations of our goals and also surprising new ways to reach them. Using the planetary connections and aspects in conjunction with our Zodiac charts can help us achieve our highest potential.

Our New Moon in Aquarius is our chance to use the unique and distinctive facets of this sign in choosing to write out our affirmations, wishes and desires. What are these features of our Aquarius Moon (ruled by Uranus) — we have an open agenda to write out our most outrageous and far-fetched ideas, because Aquarius has no equal when it comes to brilliant intellect and pushing the envelope of our more mundane concepts . Shoot for the Moon when writing under the auspices of the dynamic and daring New Moon in Aquarius!

Often — our Aquarius brethren are stoic loners who sometimes long for closer relationships and friendships — however, their sometime quirky nature can be off-putting to others who don’t share that spark of genius that stirs within their souls — and they can be socially uncomfortable and awkward — especially when young. They often also have an interest in the occult sciences, new inventions, telepathy, and other-worldly philosophies. They are fascinated by those things that cannot be explained — and often will search out answers for themselves traveling wide and far. Always interesting and with massive amounts of information, they can when moved to — share a wealth of knowledge about many diverse viewpoints and beliefs.

So let your imagination soar to new heights before you write out your New Moon list of affirmations, and bring some new ideas in order to spice up your list. Nothing is off the table with a New Moon in Aquarius — think outside the box and let yourself believe in the magic of this process. The Universe is listening to your requests in order to begin the manifestation of a new cycle in your life!

This month’s New Moon crests on the 27th  at 7:07 PM EST — at 8 degrees of Aquarius — check your chart to see what Zodiac House Aquarius lives in so that your can tailor your requests within the abilities of that particular House! You might be amazed at your results! All evening on the 27th and the next day are apropos to write out your affirmations. Good Luck!

Peace
