New Moon in Aquarius January 27th + Chinese New Year the 28th!

Greetings Cosmic Artists,

New Moon  in Aquarius

Jan 27th 4:08 PM  PST

New Moons occur each month when the Sun and Moon align in the same sign. It is the natural cycle of New Beginnings.

The sign of the of zodiac where this occurs is the area of intention, expansion, and focus for the month.


This month is Aquarius, the sign that rules Humanitarianism on a Global Scale and The Collective Conscientiousness!

I just returned from a most awesome, inspired, peaceful , yet expressive, gathering in Washington DC, the Women’s March. I joined  over a million women, men, children….. all races….all ages…all sexual preferences on the National Mall and Independence Ave.  And, over 5 million marchers gathered world wide to stand in solidarity! ” Women’s Rights are Human Rights, and Human Rights are Women’s Rights.”  This is the perfect example of what Aquarian energy is at its highest level.This New Moon  illuminates the power of the Individual and the exponential potency of higher group consciousness. What IS occurring, in the invisible arena, and under the media radar, is a Revolution, both Spiritual and in our Collective Conscience! And this is exactly what is needed to create effective and lasting social, political, and financial reform. HEART centered consciousness transforms ourselves, our lives, and our world. This March, around the world, was  from the Heart! I was there and experienced it, and felt it first hand!

There is a global movement,which started in the 60’s, that has now reached it’s first square, (conflict, negotiation point!) This Aquarian New Moon is pure and powerful, and is asking for global change and equality for all people. This is Astrology in Live Action!

Our capacity to effect change is far, far greater than we realize. Dr. David Hawkins, in his ground breaking brilliant book, Power vs Force, illustrates the profound influence our thoughts and state of mind have on ourselves and others. He defines power as energizing and life supporting. In contrast, force generates resistance, conflict and depletes energy. Power makes us strong, Force makes us weak. Love, integrity and empathy empower us; hatred, shame and judgment weaken us. His 29 year study demonstrated that the human body immediately becomes stronger or weaker depending on a person’s mental state and that level of consciousness affects the world. His studies showed that one person, vibrating at high levels of self-esteem, empathy, and a willingness to learn from experience counter balances 70,000 people in lower frequencies of hopelessness, fear, and anger. This is  awesome documented scientific information!

Just think, those of us practicing our New Moon ceremony monthly, creating our individual dreams, vibrating at a high level of consciousness  seriously impact our changing world!

As we LIVE this time of change, KNOW that we, as a group,  affect millions on a daily basis!

Today, as you set your intentions for the month and year, please include some of the Aquarian qualities of Freedom, Justice, and Equality for all people!

Lets vibe up the world consciousness!IKTL_web

Full Moon in Cancer/ Capricorn….Jan 12!

Every month Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. A Full Moon signals a time when you are able to see more clearly how certain dualities create tensions, but, can bring opportunities for growth and greater awareness! When you become aware of and merge the opposing energies you will feel more empowered and in control of your own life! Intuitively, you are seeking balance…whether you are conscience or unconscious, so, really pay attention to the messages and synchronicity! The energy at full moons are more intense…..feelings run high…..for all of us! Acting with Compassion as opposed to Anger and impatience is the better choice!

This  First Full Moon of 2017 is powerful and potent for sure! This is because  5 planets are involved forming a Cardinal Grand Cross! After the end of the long and challenging 2016….this energy will help us complete and usher in New Directions! Jupiter, (expansion) is involved and will magnify whatever is going on, so events may blow up disproportionately! We want to tap into the higher frequencies of this energy, so Best Practice, stay mindful….look at what IS possible! Be courageous and  choose a different way, the way of a happy heart!

Follow those feelings, ideas and insights that spark excitement and enthusiasm!

And….being impatient or impulsive, taking rash actions in not advised! Breathe and pause before you respond!

This Grand Cross is occurring in the signs that will effect  family vs work, relationships vs individual freedom! We are seeking to gain BALANCE and HARMONY in these 4 areas of life! There is also a very strong Pisces energy, (Spiritual) encouraging us to recommit to our Spiritual Path in 2017. Actually…..if we just remember…..this is a New Beginning ,a 1 year, the Year of Magic!                                                                                                                                                           Our INNER guidance system the the very best GPS for our own personal Magic! (The Way IN is the MAP for the Way OUT! )

Below is the Astro chart so you can visualize the Grand Cross and a Crystal  Grid to use in your FM ceremony!



Planets involved….Moon in Cancer, family (moonstone), Sun conjunct  Pluto in Capricorn, work, career (Garnet) Jupiter in Libra, relationships (rose quartz) and Uranus in Aries, individual freedom and creativity, (Carnelian). All anchored by Venus, Neptune, and Mars in Pisces, amethyst (Spirit!)

Details for your Full Moon Meditation Ceremony and Release….

Full Moons are not  time sensitive as New Moons,so no worry to be out at the exact time, But…fyi, the time is 4:08 PM Jan 12 PST. The activity or degree  is occurring at 22 *  of all 4 signs.

Plan to go out under the moonlight if you can so you can soak in her amazing rays and stand in the center of this Grand Cross!  (Between the Setting Sun and the Rising Moon!)

Find your spot, have a journal!

Take in a few deep breaths, become fully present, connecting to your Higher self,and say a prayer that includes both asking for guidance and gratitude!

If you need to release….write it down, what ever it is…… and give it over to the Moon! Once that is done…..ask these questions… and wait for the messages.

*What changes need to take place in my home this year?

*What is the single most important thing  needed in my career that will create a greater sense of purpose,

well being, and security in my life?

*What is the best way to create Balance and Harmony in all areas of my life?

*How can I grow my Spiritual practice?

                               When your time is complete…again give thanks for all you have and for the messages received,                            ALLOW the Magic in the Moonlight to  to Begin!!!


Stay Inspired…..Connected….Empowered

Peace and Blessings




January 2017…Let the Magic Begin!!!

Happy 2017….The Year of Magic!

This year begins a New Cycle for us all!!! It is a 1 year (2017 = 2+1+7= 10 =1)                 The year of the Magician and New Beginnings!

The Magician represents the Law of Manifestation! By using your many talents you ARE a Transformer and a Materializer!

The Magician uses his Inner Vision…to SEE what is possible and what is in his heart! He FEELS what it is like to be In that Vision…amazing! He absolutely KNOWS and Believes and trusts it is POSSIBLE, and he takes Doable actions to accomplish it!

This is your Magician’s Mantra…..See it, Feel it, Believe it, and Do it!

Then, like Magic….all elements needed to accomplish your Vision conspire, and  Boom….there it is…. Done!

                    Best Practice in the 1 year is to do your Magician’s Ritual Daily with your mediation and quiet time!

Live In Possibility and Magic….Daily!

Watch what you are thinking …no matter what it is… it will Manifest! So, lets  keep our mental thoughts positive!

Remember, we create our own reality….not our president or congress!

Here are the Astro details as we begin 2017…

We started  2017 in  a mystical aspect call Neptune conjunct Mars, along with Mercury RX!  From a cosmic view, we are being guided to take the time to Go In for our Guidance! Even after Mercury stations direct on the 8th, the Mars Neptune mystical aspect will hold for the entire year! This energy is perfect to use our Magician Skills….Be Inner Guided for your Outer Action!

January 8th Mercury Stations Direct@ 1:43 AM PT……. Hallelujah!!

This  has been a powerful Retrograde! As he stations direct, some important info that was withheld during the last 3 weeks, will come to light and could impact events significantly going forward! During this retrograde period, you may have uncovered some important new information, or maybe realized things that are now ready to be incorporated into your 2017 game plan! The green light is on!                  ( ps…give it just a few more days to settle down before you go into major action or major purchases!)

January 12 Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn 3:37 AM ….Cardinal Grand Cross!

Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. A full moon brings to light that which has been hidden, or needs to be illuminated in order to bring balance and harmony. If you are open and receptive, it can be a time of unification, discovery , reward and fulfillment. And, as a note, Full Moons always bring emotions to the surface…for everyone!

This is the First Full Moon in the New Year, and it is going to be quite potent! It involves 5 planets and creates a cardinal grand cross!  The planets in opposition are quite powerful, because they all want to win and be right.! This FM will be a time of RELEASE, NEGOTIATION, and INTEGRATION! It involves the area  of your work/career vs. home/family, and your relationships vs. personal independence! This energy  is sure to usher in a new wave of change sending us in new directions! It is our opportunity to release….really let go of the old ways and anything left over from 2016, and have the courage to step into a new direction!

And, with Jupiter and Uranus involved….expect the unexpected!

Emotions will be high….Best practice……

Breathe, pause, be patient before you take action or lash out at someone.

We are all feeling it!

Your spiritual practice and guidance is the IT factor so be sure to make it a priority!!!

( More details and your ceremony posted on the Full Moon Page!)

January 19th Sun moves into Aquarius!

Aquarius is ruled by the unpredictable planet Uranus….the Rouge of the Solar System! It is called this because its unpredictable behavior fits perfect with this sign as it asks us to Think outside the Box and to view life from a new perspective,considering things we hadn’t before. This solar influence also expands our hearts and minds, asking us to embrace humanitarian concerns and the global issues facing us in these times.  While the sun is in Aquarius (thru Feb18) we may feel more social, creative, inventive and curious! Our circle of friends may expand including new and intriguing peeps, with which you share common concerns or interests! To activate the highest energy of this sign, look at ways to  build bridges rather than burn them!  We need inclusion and unity now more than ever!

Best Practice….Get your Humanitarian On!!!!! Think Globally….Act Locally!!!

 January 27th New Moon in Innovative Aquarius @ 4:08 PM

The only planets involved with this New Moon in Aquarius is the Sun/Moon conjunction…..meaning no other energies will be influencing this NM! This is quite rare….and actually, this Aquarian energy will be quite pure! So BRING IT to your revolutionary New Ideas, your groups, and the world platform! I feel that this is really the beginning of the New Year….Mars gets us into action, and actually, we have the Chinese New Year…the Year of the Rooster  on the 28th!  And, we are hosting a Live New Moon, Crystal Sound Bath Meditation and Ceremony at the AURA SHOP on Jan 27th from 7 to 9. This is an awesome way to set your intentions with like minded souls! Have your energy field bathed and cleared with the alchemical sounds of Shanna and the singing bowls!!! The beautiful Crystal Energy in the Room of Illumination super charges and energizes you. It is quite an experience! If you are in town please join us!

January 27th…..Mars into Aries! Energy shift! Yippee!!

Mars begins a new 2 year cycle, out with the old…in with the new!  This is wonderful news, as we have all been pushing thru the difficult Mars in Pisces aspect. Now it is time to wake up and get things done!!! Mars remains in Aries until 3/9. What you will notice is you are feeling more energetic, confident, and courageous….. ready initiate new projects and get the ball rolling for 2017.This is a very dynamic energy and if used with some forethought and mindfulness you can accomplish a lot in a short period of time! And, it activates your New Moon intentions with Go Power!

Best Practice….Plan accordingly and Just do It!

January  28th Chinese New Year….The Year of the Fire Rooster!

In many ways, this will feel like the beginning of the New Year for us! We are thinking clearly, we have energy, and we are on a 2017  Magic Mission! The Rooster qualities will keep us on our plans and goals. They are up early, announcing the day! The love schedules and love to stay on them, as well as keeping  their space neat and tidy with everything in its place!

The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count. You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning love, money, and business. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures.

Remember: In a Rooster Year, all of the Chinese animals can reap great rewards by tapping into Rooster traits. Loyalty, commitment, hard work, family values, and top-notch appearances are just some of the characteristics that will be rewarded this year.


 There will be many exciting twists and turns in 2017!  This is a time in history that is unprecedented! We are all here to be leaders and light-workers, creating Magic despite appearances of chaos!   And, we really must be ready to stand together with our tribes to initiate the changes we desire! United we Stand….Divided we Fall!!!!

Let’s Make it a year of amazing magic and a change for Good!



Peace and Blessings
