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…

Lady Venus Enters Gemini — April 24th 2018

Lady Venus is in for a sprightly time when she moves int the Zodiac sign Gemini on the 24th at 11:40 AM EST (adjust for DST)! Although genteel and lady-like in Taurus, Lady Venus really doesn’t get to let her hair down whilst in staid and proper Taurus. As She enters Gemini our Lady Venus is delighted to find She feels lighter and airy as the Gemini persona takes hold.

Oops! I hit the wrong button — I’m so technologically challenged. Sorry — I’m working on it!

New Moon in Aries Reminder — April 15th 2018

OK folks — the New Moon in Aries crests at 8:57 PM EST (adjust for DST) — after it crests, you can write out your affirmations, wishes, and hopes throughout the evening, and all day tomorrow! This can be your reset button for a new tomorrow! The energy of a New Moon brings a swath of positive vibrations into our lives. We can use this power from the Universe to restart our thinking, mode of operation, and outlook.

Take a little time to think about where you are, and where you would like to be next year, in 5 years, etc. Perhaps putting down your thoughts and wishes on paper today will begin their journey into the mists of time, until they are ready to come to fruition to improve your life. The Aries New Moon begins our lunar year with fireworks and pizzazz! Tap into that primordial potency and reap the benefits throughout the year!

Good Luck in your quests.

New Moon in Aries — April 15th 2018

The New Moon in Aries starts the Zodiac’s new Lunar cycle for the year ahead — as with all beginnings, we have another chance to refresh, refocus, and renew our journey throughout this earthly lifetime. The New Moon energy that is expelled throughout the Galaxy during this time is full of promise and the potential for us to begin anew — use this vigorous power to write out your own affirmations, wishes, desires or hopes. Writing down your intentions begins the process of taking your special thoughts and wishes into the Universes mystical and ethereal channel, to become whole, tangible and able to become your new reality.

This month’s New Moon in Aries crests at 26 degrees of the sign, at 8:57 PM EST (adjust for DST). Since Aries is ruled by Mars, we can use this Fiery energy in areas of our life that truly need renewal, excitement, and desire. Headstrong, impatient, and with a joie de vivre that knows no bounds, the Aries New Moon can be used in any arena. Look to your Zodiac Chart to see where Aries lives and there will be a hint as to how most effectively to use this gift of strength and power.

Also — a pleasant note, Retrograde Mercury goes direct today, releasing some of its stronghold on all things mundane, technological, automotive, and communicative that it has been wreaking havoc with during the last long 25 days!  Although — a cautionary aside, even though Mercury is going to be moving forward — it somehow manages to keep within a mysterious, ethereal, delaying cloudy period  for a week or so after it begins its forward motion. So  though Mercury has begun forward motion — there may be a hiccup or two before our plans and wishes can be properly engaged. Just sayin’.

But I am always full of hope — and writing out your affirmations at the time of the New Moon is always a positive, confident and optimistic thing to do for yourself. Think about those things that would improve your life — right now! Prepare yourself by finding a quiet place where you can concentrate on your hopes and wishes — when you are in a calm and creative state of mind, begin to write out your list. You might be surprised by writing some things you hadn’t imagined before — or you may decide to wish for someone else to be given a gift because of a vision or some intuition you’ve had, you may write about your hopes for a child — anything can be granted within the realm of the majesty of our Universe. The power and strength of the ancients are within us as we call upon a Higher power to guide us to our goals. Have within you a conviction that you are worthy of these gifts, these wishes, these desires.

Believe in your innate strength, divine humanity, and that you are deserving of the bounty that will improve your journey during this life on Earth.

Write out your affirmations all evening after the New Moon in Aries crests — and for the next 24 hours for the strongest, most  positive vibrations and outcome. Believe in yourself!

Peace

April’s Astrological Activity — 2018

April will be an intense and active month after dealing with the Full Moon at the end of March that may have had an impact on our April Fool’s Day! Also Mercury is still in Retrograde mode, and won’t turn Direct until the 15th at 4:15 AM EST (adjust for DST) — and, of course, to add to the energy — we also have our New Moon in Aries cresting the same day at 8:57 PM EST (adjust for DST) meeting up with The Planet of the unexpected — Uranus. Therefore there is a push/pull kind of power play going on with Mercury stationary at 4 degrees of Aries intensifying its grasp for the last few minutes before moving forward. The New Moon in Aries lights up 26 degrees of the sign and is in concert with Uranus, there might be a need to attend to some sudden happening — it could be wonderfully positive or perhaps somewhat surprising. Write out your New Moon wishes with serious intent, however, you might want to wait a few days before trying something you haven’t tried before. Those born near this date or with a major Planet at this degree will be starting a new lunar cycle, with the addition of Uranus in the mix, it could be a life-changing event. The Full Moon is on the 29th at 7:59 PM EST (adjust for DST), energizing 9 degrees of Scorpio and may prove to be a more benign Full Moon than most.

There are several negative aspects early in the month that might deal with governmental edicts that are not popular or able to be worked out. There is unrest in the day to day business of government — and there may be protests. Later in the month there might be a pause as higher-ups rethink the pathway they are taking. Personally, people will be impatient and short with others, don’t take it to heart but, if you can, just let some things go! Later you will find common ground in order to move forward.

There are bright spots in the canvas of this month as Jupiter in Scorpio will connect positively with Pluto in Capricorn on the 14th bringing a powerful force for you to use, remember to keep things in perspective as your enthusiasm will seem boundless. Later in the day, Mars in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces are in good aspect and you might find your “Spidey” senses are attuned to others. You are feeling holistic and altruistic towards humankind.

Saturn will turn Retrograde on the 17th at 9 degrees of Capricorn, not moving forward until September 5th. This time period may allow us to recap our recent past, acknowledge our shortcomings and help us to see where we may have gone wrong — but Saturn will teach us the way forward in good time. With Saturn we must “listen” with all of our senses as the lessons imparted are those we must learn in this lifetime.

A beautiful connection all month long between  Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces will be influencing our spiritual nature with amazing insight. We can, if we wish, find a deeper and more intense connection to our “true” selves. Also you can tap into that inner psychic link that we all have with the spiritual Universal connection with all of humanity. Yes you do have it — perhaps you never attempted to get in touch with that side of your innate nature, however, everyone has had some moments of an eerie psychic experience from another esoteric plane of existence. Be open to all of your senses — we have them for a reason — ignoring your natural gifts won’t stop them from working for you. Allowing all of your instincts, intuition and insight will allow you to fully continue your evolutionary path to your own divine reality.

Also, Mars in Capricorn and Venus in Taurus will add an Earthy pragmatism that we can count on to keep us on an even keel. With Mars in Capricorn taking things one step at a time, and Venus in Taurus giving us reasons to appreciate our families and loved ones, we can sit back for a bit and enjoy the fruits of our labors — realizing we work hard to care for those we love, and our rewards are in the satisfaction of seeing the daily routine become our beautiful reality and the balanced rhythm of our lives.

I am beginning to believe that this Aries New Moon on April 15th is kind of like a reset button — as Mercury will be stationary direct and will begin its forward movement, and the New Moon energy spreads a transcendent light over all of us. Take a moment today to write out your affirmations and wishes during this New Moon as it begins the Zodiac’s ancient cycle of our yearly existence.

Since today is the 7th, I shall begin with the aspects that grace this time period, early this morning was a pleasant interlude with Venus and the Moon that hopefully started our day off with good conversation and love, meeting up with Saturn, Venus is spreading a lot of common sense to us, so that we may make good decisions and have good outcomes. Late night on the 10th and early on the 11th there is a push/pull between the Sun and Pluto seeking to be in charge, but after midnight on the 11th Venus and Mars connect to straighten out any angst that was raised with those who have your best interests at heart. Move towards the positive and bright lights in your life and ignore the naysayers. On the 12th Venus and Neptune enjoy each other’s company around noon, a luncheon date or meeting has all the pluses for a positive outcome, and perhaps for some — a romantic connection that will grow. A good note for Friday the 13th after lunch you might find you have to make a decision between two awesome choices, think about what will really make your life better and less stressful. Mars and Neptune meet on the 14th after the lunch hour and you might have a flash of intuition that inspires your artistic and empathetic nature. You seem to “know” what others need!

Of course — I think the New Moon on the 15th is a red-letter-day! Be sure to write out your affirmations, wishes and desires to ensure that your own thoughts are put into the ether and taken up into the Galaxial vortex.

Now the 17th is a busy day with Venus in Taurus touching base with Jupiter in the wee hours of the morning — perhaps letting us know we have indulged in too much of a good (or bad) thing. but later in the morning, Venus and Pluto have an understanding moment that will bring loving moments and possibly a dream come true! On the 18th as you get to the office, the Sun and Uranus conjoin to bring unbridled energy into your day, expect the unexpected, but keep a positive attitude and you will be pleasantly surprised. Later the next afternoon Venus and Saturn are in a snit, and you might find someone raining on your parade — don’t let the “turkeys” get you down. The 20th brings us the Sun and Neptune at odds after lunch, it might just be a bad burrito, or your energy just sinks — take a moment of quiet if you can and recharge your batteries. The 23rd finds Venus and Uranus in sync, around noon, you might get a chance to make some extra money, or find something of value you’ve had for ages and can now redeem to finance a dream. Mars and Jupiter get along after midnight on the 24th, but your mind might be reeling with new and exciting ideas and you can’t get to sleep. Also, Lady Venus changes signs moving into frivolous and quirky Gemini today — changing her persona to accommodate Gemini’s fun-loving outlook. Later afternoon on the 25th Mercury and Saturn just don’t see eye-to-eye, it feels like everyone is a critic and no-one is being helpful. Mars meets up with Pluto on the 26th at the dinner hour, there is a lot of energy being expelled, and not all of it is positive. Try to keep your cool if others are fretful and/or angry. The 29th finds the Sun and Saturn agreeing to get along, we can find ourselves being responsible, honest and might come upon an opportunity for growth. The Full Moon in Scorpio crests later in the day and our emotions might be piqued, better to allow any angst to wash over you and find that comfort zone of home and familiar settings bringing peace and tranquillity into your realm.

Sorry this seems to have gone on forever, but it is a pivotal month for change — find those areas that work for you, and those folks who have your best interests at heart! Family, friends and good thoughts go a long way in making our lives better, stronger and more fun! We all would do well to delve into the appreciation we feel to those who always keep us strong and positive in our daily lives. We are all part of the whole of humanity — let’s all treat each other with a bit more kindness and understanding. Blessings!

Peace

 

Lady Venus Enters Taurus — March 30th 2018

After Her exciting rampage through Fiery Aries, our Lady Venus is in for quite a change when entering the Earthy Fixed sign Taurus on the 30th at 11:54 PM EST (adjust one hour for DST). Aries is full of energy, fire, and passion — Taurus is, although determined, a quiet soul with sensitive feelings. Our Lady Venus will be a bit flummoxed for a while, as She figures out just how to use her charms to pique staid Taurus’ attention. Of course, pique Taurus She will with her feminine charm and wile — actually our sturdy Taurus might not know how to handle the impact. Lady Venus loves the style and demeanor of stately Taurus, and knows with the willpower of the Taurus persona, She will be able to carry on with Her pathway and find new ways to improve the way She finds love and respect within Her realm. And, Lady Venus will be looking for love with the help of Taurus — someone steady, kind, and responsible — but with a passionate intensity.

Having entered Taurus late in the day, our Lady Venus is slowly gearing up to start using this new Taurus energy for Her own desires. Meeting up with Mercury on April 6th, around the noon hour, Lady Venus will be the star at a luncheon or meeting with her enthusiastic personality with overtones of Taurus charm and sensible abilities. On the 7th that lunch meeting may have brought along some long-term benefits with a morning meeting with Saturn that bring potential business or romantic partners. After midnight on the 10th Lady Venus meets up with mighty Mars and a late night outing may have presented an opportunity for a professional opportunity and/or a new acquaintance has their eye on you with romantic overtones. The 12th finds Lady Venus and Neptune in a congenial get-together at lunch time, this may be the start of something big! A compatible companion will let you know just how much you mean to them — in no uncertain terms — the ball is in your court. Friday the 13th may turn out to be a positive day for you after lunch as Jupiter enters the fray — it might be too much of a good thing, you will have to use that Lady Venus in Taurus good judgement to truly see what is going on and how you can make it work. The 17th during the morning rush hour, Lady Venus and Pluto are in tune and can bring a budding relationship to a more intense level, just be sure you want to take that next step. With Taurus in the mix you will be able to keep your head in the game. Lady Venus and Jupiter once again find each other at dinner time on the 19th where you may find someone in a snit, but your own personal sense of self will win out and you can find an answer to any misstep. Lady Venus in Taurus and Uranus in Aries connect on the 23rd in mid-morning to reassess any ongoing issues, you might find some exciting adventure on the horizon. Alas, on the 24th our Lady Venus enters the effervescent and flighty sign of Gemini, where She becomes giddy with the delightful feelings of romance, longing and desire. However, in Gemini — Lady Venus will see love wherever she looks — and will be overwhelmed with choosing the perfect companion.

Enjoy the time our Lady Venus in Taurus is in transit, much can be accomplished with Fixed Earthy Taurus in the mix — Lady Venus is more mature, wiser, and better able to separate the wheat from the chaff. Her steely Taurus eye doesn’t miss any subtle clues from possible lovers or business opportunities. Use this time to clarify your objectives in the business world and in the bedroom!

Hint — find your Lady Venus in Taurus love at an auction for charity, finding just the right scarf for her favorite outfit, trying new ethnic foods in a neighborhood restaurant, wearing sensible shoes, working out at a local gym, reading to toddlers at a day-care, working with her banker to assure her future financial security, moving to a better neighborhood, encouraging youngsters to strive to do their best, and buying a safe and sturdy automobile for the area in which She lives.

 

Reality — Journal Entry — Jone Victoria — March 24th 2004

One dimensional thinking is confining. Is that your reality?

Barriers of thought are just three dimensional visual challenges. Peel your own reality, to find layers of sub-structures seeking explanations: wanting definitions.

Too much mind chatter is associated with trying to make sense of our realities. Where is the reality of stillness and solitude?

Fall.

Inward.

Silence.

By escaping physical reality we transform to a near silent reality. Translucent, almost Spirit-like, we can rest in a stillness until a flicker of thought shatters the line of demarcation.

It’s an inner spiral — a vortex of depth in which you can transcend, trying to extricate yourself from matter — from physical — from thought.

Vibrating light, pure soundless light, thus creating an opposing holographic form of double helix, the pattern of the Universe, of which all cellular structure is created and remains in the fabric of time.

Connective –ess, connective-essential, to the original infinite structure reaching outward and pulling inward. Identical moments, dissipating the physical until you are truly radiating in pure light.

I used to believe that what you could see and feel is reality and now know the illusion of the senses are mere distractions of common trickery. In losing your way you find yourself.

We are light-seeds interacting with each other in various Universes, often unaware or ignorant of the multiple realities that exist within us.

Our realities are infinite.

Jone always kept a journal, and used it to keep track of her progression and evolution as a human being. This post was written long before she started her “Reclaim Your Light” blog — and you can only imagine the complex workings of her brilliant mind as she tried to find her own truth. She often fought against her own inner knowledge and the veracity of her beliefs. Yet Jone’s journey was one of inner discovery and awakening. Shortened by her early demise, we can only try to enter the complex and vivid insights she found when allowing herself to let go of the ambiguous hold on what seems to be reality.

She often found the way into the depths and heights of our human limitations — and eventually was comfortable in wearing her own truth. We all must come to grips with our own reality — and wear our own personal truths. We have limitless possibilities open to us — if we but observe and examine all aspects of our existential human existence.

A Glorious Spring Equinox — March 20th 2018

Titillating  on the tongue, the word Equinox seems to get our attention by reverberating throughout our body. The word is as ancient as time, evoking distant memories of incantation, prayer and mystical rite that brought us to a reverential interval of the year that awakened our Souls. Along with the Earth renewing itself with fresh growth and progression — we humans are also promised a fresh beginning. As the Sun starts to warm the Northern Hemisphere — the bitter cold dissipates and the Earth begins to respond with emergent foliage and vegetation.

How blessed did our ancestors feel to have survived yet another cold and stormy winter with their stores of root vegetables, preserved meat and fish, chutneys, jams and jellies. Fortitude, planning and Yankee grit managed to get them through those long bitter days. Hunkered down in their homes, the fireplace central to their ability to stay warm, their water gathered every day from spring or ancient pump — they endured, learned, suffered, overcame and persisted, through all of the trials they had to face. Stolid, sturdy, strong-minded, resolute and determined they triumphed over the elements, to begin anew that primeval cycle of renewal, growth, harvest and winter doldrums.

How magical to see the Earth responding to the sunlight and spring rains, blossoming with life — restoring our inner core of optimism — bringing us Hope! Giddy with the effervescence of anticipation — we chose to honor, celebrate, dance, feast and give thanks to the generosity of Mother Nature. Working together, life was good — progress was made — we were sustained by our enduring strength and faith in something beyond our knowledge. We honor the memories of those who have gone before us — we are humbled by their fortitude and resilience. We are grateful to be the living recipients and testament of their hard work and their undying love!

A Glorious Spring Equinox!

Peace
