New Moon in Capricorn Jan 16th @6:17 PM PST

The first New Moon of 2018 features six planets in Capricorn, challenging us to take charge and commit to a course of action!The Saturn ruled Sea Goat is a powerful manifester and master builder with  much potential for crystallizing our intentions into form! So, it is super important to be Conscious about what we are calling in! We might feel like we’re standing at a crossroads, under pressure to make the right decision. But what we commit to is less important than our motivation. If we are motivated by fear, we won’t feel good about the end result, even if we reach our goal!

Capricorn rules both fear and authority. And, Doing just to DO, because we think we” should”, rather than what we instinctively  know is true and right, just won’t cut it! This is a new time on our planet, with a new frequency. We have a lot of assistance from the Light Being above! Following our heart and soul is what will get us to the end game. And, the very active energy of this New Moon will assist us beyond our wildest imagination, as long as we work with it and FOLLOW our personal truth!

The Planets involved are Saturn, (structure/Karma) Mercury(communication), Pluto (power, transformation), Moon(emotions),Sun           (vitality), and Venus (Love and Money)! All this Capricorn energy rules these areas and are getting additional emphasis : Career/work, authority, generational issues and patterns,  responsibilities and obligations, integrity and truth principles, your soul’s purpose and intentions for this point in your life!

There is a potent square to Uranus in Aries squaring this New Moon, pushing us to consider New Directions in 2018! Uranus calls us to go in new directions, those that allow for more freedom ,creativity, and purpose.So,if you have not made those changes you know you need to make, Uranus’s presence may bring some unexpected  events and the appearance of chaos!

Jupiter (expansion) and Mars(action) are both together in Scorpio fueling this New Moon. They will be assisting us to access our deepest feelings, intuition, and truth! Together,they remind us that our material goals need to be fueled by PASSION and AUTHENTICITY! Without the emotion behind our intention, we wont have the persistence to move through obstacles and overcome challenges on the journey!

The Capricorn part of all of us is learning to master our inner realm rather than trying to make the outer world conform to our judgement of what it ” should be”. This means opening up to a “higher order”, that may appear to our limited perception, to be totally disordered and out of control. Chaos is actually the ability to surrender and let the Divine Rule. Implicit in chaos is Divine Order. This New Moon asks us to trust that we can create something more miraculous that we imagine when we let go go our limited agenda and allow the surprising and unexpected to come through! In other words….Let Go and Let God!!

The best crystals to use for you ceremony are  black onyx or obsidian, garnet for the Capricorn energy, malachite or herkimer diamonds for the Scorpio transformative energy, amethyst for connecting to your Higher Self, and Carnelian so soften the Aries energy and bring creative energy thru! And always, Moonstone to set the New Cycle! I always like to amplify intentions with  with clear quartz clusters!

January 2018 Overview!

Greetings Cosmic Artist,

Happy New Year! And wow, this is quite a busy start to 2018. I do apologize for my delayed post, but I came down with the end of the year ebgbees (otherwise know as a very bad case of the flu and cold)! LOL

There is much to discuss, so let’s get right to it!

Jan 1…..Super Full Moon in Cancer/ Capricorn! It was the largest, brightest, and closest of the entire year! It was quite emotionally charged, emphasizing family, ancestral linage, goals, plans,finances, security….and a bit of nostalgia!

Jan 2….Uranus Stations Direct!  When combined with this Super Full Moon,Uranus, the Planet of Genius, Surprise,Freedom, and Unpredictability, is supercharged to move you in new directions! This aspect is in orb most of the month! Uranus has been retrograde since August, so, now, in it’s forward motion, it will assist us in thinking outside the box, allowing for insights, and new brilliant ideas! Pay close attention to coincidences and synchronicities! Best practice…..slow down, work to stay grounded, and keep your diet clean! This is strong, powerful energy!

Jan 6th….Mercury ( thinking and communication) trines (flows) Uranus and Mars (action) kisses Jupiter ( expansion! )This is a dynamic combo that will generate a lot of emotional and mental energy. Stay open to new brilliant insights, and try not to over commit your  TO DO list!

Jan 9th…. Mercury hits its shadow point of 29* Sagittarius before entering Capricorn! Important discoveries and realizations and information is revealed. You may gain clarity around something that has perplexed you. A cycle is completing allowing you to enter a   new one with a clean slate and better understanding of what most important!

Jan 9th….Sun,Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn sextile Jupiter in Scorpio! (dates of influence 1/6 – 1/11) This is a powerful influence that will allow for dreams to become reality, as long as we are are focused, committed and persevere!

Jan 10th – Jan 31…. Mercury shifts into the sign of Capricorn for the next 3 weeks! So, talk about the Capricorn influence….we will have 5 planets in the goal oriented, builder sign! So much can be accomplished now. Time to begin and infuse your projects, and plans for 2018! Mercury in Capricorn facilitates clear, grounded thinking and assists in strategic planning! It allows you to focus, thinking in practical, grounded, logical ways!

Jan 12/13th….Mercury conjuncts Saturn! This aspect brings a bit of a serious tone to your conversations, as well as your thought process. Truth and honesty are the theme, as well as integrity, morals, ethics and sincerity! (Let’s see what the national conversation reveals these few days!)

Jan 16th….New Moon in Capricorn..6:17 PM @ 27 Capricorn This is the first new moon of 2018 features 6 planets in Capricorn, challenging us to take charge and commit to a course of action. Capricorn is a powerful manifester and master builder! And, with so much potential crystallizing our intentions into form, we want to be conscience of WHAT we are calling into form! This New Moon calls us to reconnect  to our inner authority and reclaim our power to be the DIRECTOR of our lives! It forms a beautiful connection to 2 planets in Scorpio reminding us to add PASSION to our plans and goals. It is the emotional energy that empowers our dreams….like the wind beneath our Capricorn intentions! Uranus is also involved….creating tension to go in New Innovative directions! If you only do 1 New Moon intention setting ceremony of the year….this is the one! I will be posting the New Moon ceremony shortly! I will be holding a sacred New Moon ceremony in the Marina….details on the events page!Jan 19- Feb-2/18.….The Sun moves into the sign of Aquarius! (Yippe) This will be a dramatic SHIFT of energy. During these 30 days things happen quickly and unexpectedly do to the unpredictable energy of Uranus, ruler of the sign of Aquarius! This solar influence expands our hearts and minds as we  embrace humanitarian concerns and the global issues facing all of us at this historic time in history!

Jan 24th….Mercury conjuncts Pluto…..When the Messenger of the Gods kisses Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, a very serious atmosphere prevails! This is a karmic vibe now which reminds us to stay in the highest integrity in all your interactions. Take a close look at your long term plans and the  implications  of your decisions and actions!

Jan 31..Super Full Moon, Blue Moon, Red Moon, Lunar Eclipse 5:25 AM 11* Leo/Aquarius……Woza! The Leo Full Moon presents a powerful opportunity to heal our hearts and expand our capacity for LOVE! And, because it is a total lunar eclipse, when our shadows are revealed, we can see more clearly the places we’ve closed our hearts and restricted the flow of love. Feelings of resentment, loneliness, or self-pity are signals to take the risk of opening our hearts and   sharing our love with others. The Leo Solar eclipse on August 21 is a useful reference point of this eclipse. How has our capacity for giving and receiving love shifted and evolved in the past 6 months? What seeds of intention were planted then that are are now coming to fruition? Eclipses typically recur at the same degree of the zodiac every 19 years. How have you evolved as a lover—-lover of yourself, others, of life! Thiswill be quite a revealing Full Moon Eclipse! Buckle Up, and be sure to go out and HOWL with the Moon, we won’t see it….but we will FEEL it!!!

2018=11= 1+1 =2 The year of the High Priestess!

The High Priestess symbolizes the law of wisdom, knowledge and TRUTH! (Very Similar to Jupiter in Scorpio, so a double whammy for speaking Truth) As this year unfolds, double check the facts, research to get to the bottom of situations, and make sure that you choose Truth!  Just refuse to do what you know is not right. The Truth will surface, so, if you are not being honest, you will be found out! Also, this is a year to develop your intuition. Your best practice, BE STILL, STAY COOL, LISTEN IN, STAY BALANCED and HAVE CLARITY, and check in with your intuition when making all decisions!

Wishing you the very best as we all navigate the amazing, changing, exciting time in our history!

Stay

Inspired….Connected…..Empowered

Peace and Blessings

2018 ….A year of Magical,Mystical, Momentum!

 

New Moon in Sagittarius December 17th

New Moon in Sagittarius

10:31 PM PST Dec 17th

26* Degrees

New Moons are always a potent time to create your intentions for the month ahead. It is  similar to hitting the reset button, returning to our original Soul Setting!

And, for this last New Moon of 2017,  both the Sun and Moon, + Mercury RX,Venus, and Saturn at 29* are all converging in Visionary Expansive Sagittarius. It is the perfect time to set our intentions for the month, as well as plant BIG  seeds for 2018!

Since Sagittarius IS  Big Vision Energy, we are being asked to let go of our small, petty, outdated beliefs. Now is the time to Think Big, expand, and grow our truths and ideas!  Sagittarius seeks to learn and know the Truth through education, travel, philosophy, intuitive knowing, religion, and adventure. And after all that has occurred in 2017, it is certainly is a good time to try to get a new perspective!

sag kagayaAs a Note, Saturn is just about to leave Sagittarius, after being in this sign for the last 2.5 years, and it is strongly involved with this New Moon. With Mercury RX in such close proximity, consider what you have learned and how you have grown during its stay in Sagittarius, especially in regards to your spiritual life and journey. So much of what you’re realizing and coming to know as true for you is happening on the inner and may not be easy to relay or share with others. Best Practice, just allow such truths to deepen your relationship to your higher self!

Take the time now during this New Moon energy, and reflect on 2017…..what did you learn? What worked? What is ready to leave in 2017 as you dream BIG for 2018. Listen in with your inner ear….your intuition, higher self and allow it to guide you at this time. Is it time to take a BOLD step in a new direction?

Take the time to plant the seeds  for the New You in 2018!

The time is NOW for you to honor your

Intuitive Knowing and have the

Courage to share your Unique Voice with the world!

Let’s release our crazy fears that keep us in

bondage and have  Courage to Act !

Possibilities and opportunities exist we never

imagined were possible if we just Look Outside the box!

A few more questions to consider as you prepare for this New Moon……

What is Spirit’s Vision of my life, and this new year? Ask!

How can I be of the greatest service at this moment in time? (Our planet needs you! )

What must I become to Live my Vision…..

What must I know to BE MY VISION……

Spend quiet time, you will get an Insight…Idea…..Ah ha!

 

Set yourself up for an outstanding year!

Make it Easy!

Aligning with the Power of the Universe  is the fastest, easiest and most exciting way

December 2017 Overview!

December is full of shifts and changes as we complete one major celestial cycle, readying to move into 2018 with new energy! We are moving out of fire and air energy into earth and water dominance, which represents the emotional and physical realms. And, the first 10 days of the month are super active as we make the shifts and changes needed to begin the year fresh and ready!

It really is an incredible sequence of astro events!

Buckle up…( as we have all year….. for the final month! …LOL)

 

Here is the breakdown by date:

December 1st…….Venus enters Sagittarius until 12/24

This placement of  Venus can bring greater tolerance for others, increases your desire for freedom and independence, encourages you to embark upon some kind of adventure and can renew your passion for learning. Be on the lookout for experiences during this time that can increases your optimism and hope for the future!

December 1st……Mars opposite Uranus ( influence is about a week!) This is a Major Transit!

This is a very action-oriented transit and will generate movement in some area that has been stagnant or motionless. During this first week there will likely be more than a few surprising and unexpected events taking place that are quite significant. What is especially interesting is that while this aspect can be quite erratic and destabilizing, the Mercury Saturn conjunction occurring at the same time brings a more focused grounded type of energy that can help us make sense out of what’s happening. And, even though there is some confusion and chaos at first, things will sort them selves out….Best Practice…Breathe…Stay Present…Slow Down!

December 2nd…Mercury Stations Retrograde thru December 22 while conjunct Saturn!

This is a very potent Mercury Rx for several reasons. First Mercury  is conjunction Saturn very close the Galactic Center of the Universe!

( Side note…..When so close to the Galactic Center, it helps us to establish a connection to the higher realms which are generally difficult to reach. During these few days the energy which emanates from the GC is connected through Saturn and Mercury, and  may be more noticeable . Insights and solutions are certainly possible during this time, but you must bypass the way you normally think and process things. Open your inner vision and listen with your inner ears while you focus on the GC . This creates a gateway for reaching higher truths, insights, and experiences! And, you may be called to start over in some key area of your life! The universe may be handing you a new agenda that aligns with a purpose higher than the one you’ve been aligned with and living by. Also, know that whatever is being presented now is something that you are capable of doing.You will now be able to tap into your own ancient wisdom that you may not have  known you had available. And, you may have a soulful type of experience where you remember in great detail  something of great importance that helps you  understand your true purpose for this incarnation. Trusting yourself is a key to receiving such information. This info can help you  make sense of a lot of things that have occurred in your life!!

This is SOOO  exciting!

Take the time to be with this energy!

There will probably be some significant announcements, conversations, realizations, decisions, meetings , etc  taking place the few days around this station. Whatever the topics, they will have a significant impact over time. This certainly includes what is going on in the world and being reported in the media. In general, there is a tone of seriousness in the air suggesting that some of the issues at hand warrant our attention and scrutiny. It is very important to be honest and come from the highest integrity possible during the 3 weeks Mercury is retrograde. And because this station takes place while kissing Saturn, the message is clear:                                 Slow down, don’t hurry making decisions, and take the time to listen to yourself and others carefully!

Here are a few suggestions to do…or not….during this RX.

*Avoid signing contracts or making verbal agreements during this 3-week period.

*Check and recheck ALL your plans…travel, meetings,gatherings, even if you set them up way in advance!

*Don’t ASSUME others know the arrangements, they are under this influence as well…a quick text/call goes a long way!

*This is the perfect time to REFLECT on 2017. It has been a doosy! What changed…. what goals did you accomplish? Have you gained some new perspectives to bring with you into 2018? What are you definitely leaving in 2017?  What lessons were learned?

*It is the perfect time to RE:

Rethink your plans, Reconsider your options or ideas that may have re-presented themselves as of late. Revamp your mission statement or Bio, or resume, Rework your budget…..RELAX, spend downtime!….There is a lot to digest as we end this year.

December 2nd….Jupiter Trines Neptune! This will be felt for a few weeks before and after!

This is the 1st of 3 very beneficial aspects between Jupiter (expansion + blessings) and Neptune (our spiritual connection!) And, it is quite interesting that this is occurring at the same time as the alignment with the Galactic Center.! We have help from the Cosmos!!!!

*This energy brings a highly spirited and alchemical energy that can transmute old patterns that  have been blocking the higher energies.

*Gateways and portals are opened allowing for some very powerful mystical energies and downloads to enter.

*Opportunities for deepening your spiritual connections, understandings, and experiences occur.

*You gain clarity as to how your life wants to expand to include your vision, while also bringing insights and ideas for how to begin! This is best accessed thru downtime, meditation, and just BEING!

December 3rd…..Full Moon Super Moon in Gemini at 7:47 AM @ 11.40 *

Full moons occur when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth. This energy tends to be more intense,emotional, and impassioned! (This one will be for sure!) Usually the truth about something that has perplexed or confused us may be reveled or discovered in the days surrounding the full moon.Areas getting emphasized now: Your thoughts and attitudes, communications, education and learning,the media and events taking place in foreign countries. Also how you take in and assimilate new information! There is so much going on astrologically now, and it all impacts the mental body! Your conversations, how you communicate, and your thought processes are highlighted. It is important to discern what is true from what is not, while being open to what was true for you in the past many no longer be so now! More info will be on the Full Moon page, and we are doing a beautiful Full Moon Ride and Ceremony on Sunday! Details and sign up are on the Events Page.Please RSVP so we can reserve your horse!

December 9th….Mars enters Scorpio until 1/26/18

Mars  is the impassioned Spiritual Warrior  in the sign of Scorpio! Your desire to discover what is really going on is strong, and you won’t be satisfied with anything less than the truth! Hidden agendas and secrets come forth and abuse and misuse of power continues to get attention. It is very important to come from integrity during this time. Overall this energy brings intense emotions to the forefront which have the potential to increase strong feeling and reactions. Mars in Scorpio can increase sensuality and magnetic attraction. You may be prone towards feeling irritable or impatience! Best Practice….Breathe before you react….look for a win win before you slay your opponent!

December 12th…. Sun conjunct Mercury

This will be a day of big news where something important is revealed. Personally, a significant realization occurs. Pay attention to conversations, what you read, new ideas, ect!

 

December 17th…New Moon in Sagittarius

New Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in the same sign and marks the beginning of a new 28.5-day Lunar Cycle. It is an opportunity to hit the reset button…and begin again! The areas getting attention now are new teachings and bodies of study, teachers and mentors, and travel that expands your understanding. This new moon invites you to expand your mind to include new possibilities as well as new ideas, opinions and perspectives…all leading to interesting new options and opportunities! Your insights at this time can shift your priories and move you in new directions! There will be 5 planets in Sagittarius at the  time of this New Moon which makes this an especially powerful energy bringing an emphasis to your ethics, morals and beliefs. It is very important to align with those things that are true for you and that honor your authentic self!

Saturn is just about to leave Sagittarius after being here for 2.5 years . Take a look at what you have learned and how you have grown, especially in regards to your spiritual life and journey. This is an ending of a cycle.

More details and your ceremony and  will be posted on the New Moon page soon.

 December 19th……… Saturn enters Capricorn  from 12/19 -3/21/2020! This is a major transit!

When an outer planet (Saturn,Jupiter,Uranus,Neptune, or Pluto) changes signs, it signals a cosmic shift of agendas! Crossroads are arrived at, priorities change, new options need to be considered and different directions are embarked upon in accord with the planet and sign involved. Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn, and when this happens (planet in ruling sign) its influence is amplified and has a stronger impact. Saturn rules  father time and cycles, Karmic cycles and patterns. For Karmic cycles to complete, we must first learn the lessons they were intended to to teach ( lessons and challenges,) The concept of “we reap what we sow” is  clearly Saturn in nature and application.Saturn also rules government, its structures, agendas, laws, and all things related to government. Limits are reached when Saturn is a key player…..the saying “enough is enough” is a good motto as is “this to shall pass”  There is much to discuss here and I will be addressing  this influence on my 2018 year overview, but  for now, here are a few key words that will be the guiding principles for the next 2.5 years!

Common sense,security, order, rhythm, integrity, honesty, tenacity, perseverance, determination, goals, your intentions,work, career, purpose, practicality  and simplicity!

I also must note,  when a planet shifts signs, the energy if felt more strongly ( like entering a room, there is a commotion as you take off your coat, hat, and get comfortable in your new environment!)…..you will feel and notice the shift as it is happening!

December 21st….The Sun enters Capricorn….Winter Solstice!

This day marks the official start of winter. A special time to honor and prepare for a change of seasons!

December 22nd…Mercury Stations Direct! Yippee!

This is a good time to consider what took place in the last 3 weeks….

*Did you come to realize something significant during this time?

* Have you gained a new perspective?

*Did you encounter or talk to someone that left an impression that gave you a new insight?

*Is it time to let go of an obligation or project….or embark on a new  adventure or go in a new direction?

* And, make sure you check and recheck any plans or arrangements you made during the last 3 weeks!

December 23rd….Venus enters Capricorn until 1/17

While Venus is in Capricorn it brings up  issues such as commitment, loyalty, dedication and perseverance in all your relationships.You may find that your sense of security and stability are tested and reviewed.  Also, it is important to align your values with your partners, as well as your future goals. One thing to watch during this time..becoming too cold or emotionally unavailable!.

December 25th….Venus Conjunct Saturn on Christmas Day

This conjunction on Christmas day brings the desire to honor tradition and what is sacred about the meaning of this holiday.

As you make plans, try to include those things that have lasting value and that truly matter to you, your family, and your friends!

December 27th….Mars trines Neptune ….thru 1/18

A beautiful way to end the month! This benevolent aspect makes it easier than usual to merge your personal will with your divine will , while soothing over conflicts, mending fence and generally creating an atmosphere of peace and good will in ways and places that are oftentimes difficult to achieve!

Wow! What an extraordinary month and ending to an extraordinary year! In the midst of all the chaos in the world, remember, we are in a revolution…..a time of change at every level of our country, government,communities, and our selves!

2018 is a year where we roll up our sleeves and work hard at rebuilding our world….from the bottom up, based on our core values as human beings! If we work together, and can build a world that works for everyone!

Have a wonderful, reflective holiday season…..rest up…..we will be busy in 2018!

Stay Inspire….Connected….Empowered

Peace and Blessings

New Moon in Scorpio November 18th

New Moon in Scorpio

November 18th

3:42 AM

26 Scorpio

New Moons each month set the stage for new cycles to begin. Astrologically, it is the best time to start fresh in some way, or to embark on the next phase of something you’ve been working on. Since both the Sun and Moon are aligned in the same sign, the energy of that sign is the focus….and this month it is Scorpio, ruler of birth, death, regeneration and transformation!! It is a powerful intense energy! And, when used at its highest form, can help us change and rejuvenate…… or…. we can plummet into the darkness of fear, obsession, and misuse of power! We fear what we do not understand. Fear manifests from a limited view!

Here are the aspects involved at the time of this powerful, transformative NW:

*Four planets are  lined up in Scorpio…..(the Sun, Moon,Venus and Jupiter)  Scorpio themes are amplified! Time to go deep and get to hidden secrets! By shining Light on that which is hidden,we are able to be healed and rejuvenated.Trust your instinct  and any insights you get at this time!

*Sun/Moon is inconjunct Uranus. Something you hadn’t planned on or scene coming brings new perspectives.It may become quite apparent that some routines or habits need to change. We are being shaken out of our comfort zone! Make the changes you know are right and needed.

*Mars squares Pluto...There is a strong potential for  power struggles, conflicts and differing interpretations of what is right and wrong, or good or bad. Slow way down, speak your truth with love and an open heart, work to create a win win solution!

  • Keys to accessing the higher vibrations of the New Moon are to utilize whatever you feel passionate about. Moving towards passion transforms that which is blocking you.                                     passion word

It’s all about Letting Go of old forms, patterns, agendas….so you are freed up to REJUVENATE your passions, giving you the courage to take action!!!

The best crystal to use for this New Moon is Malachite! Like Scorpio, it  is intense, beautiful, and will absorb the  negative energy  and thought patterns you release, totally assisting  you in this powerful transformation process!  And since the Sun and Moon are conjunct, additional Scorpio crystals for this time are Smoky Quartz and Herkimer Diamonds! Use all 3 while you do your NM Ceremony!
