What’s In The Stars

As the New Year begins we are reminded that life is always in a constant motion. It’s all about moving forward and not sitting still. Staying active, and feeling motivated by life and the fact that we have made it another year. Letting go of the ugliness of politics, and seeking our own truths. As we begin 2016, remember that everyone is fighting their own battles. Kindness goes a long way. Let’s ring in 2016 on a positive note. Manifest the good.
Mercury, the planet of chat, retrograde from Jan 5, 2016 through Jan 25 –
The overall general theme of Mercury retrograde is about reflection. It offers us a time to be more reflective about life on planet earth, to contemplate and to create order by eliminating things that block our clarity. Therefore it is generally a good time to write, edit meditate, retreat and organize.”Whenever Mercury moves into a retrograde motion we find ourselves feeling mentally frustrated as what we think and how it is delivered is in complete contradiction. In addition, since Mercury rules communication, and this particular retrograde is taking place in the stern Saturn-ruled sign of Capricorn, we may find our thoughts to be a bit more on the regimented side. More in control, less leeway in our thought process and/or communication.
Jupiter, the planet of luck, retrograde from Jan 7, 2016 through May 9, 2016 –
While Jupiter is retrograde in picky Virgo we may spend more time seeking answers from within, relying on our own instincts and rational thinking as opposed to delving outward. Most likely we may explore growth and changes we need in order to transform. However instead of the happy-go-lucky planet pushing to step out of our little box, now retrograde in Virgo we find ourselves more detailed, more open to slowing down, taking a breather. Every retrograde brings something to the table, and Jupiter in retrograde brings to light a need to stay quiet, and search from within our own inner sanctuary. Those ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius will feel the profound effects of this transit as it triggers work matters, and/or personal relationships. Those born under Pisces will feel the opposition as it feels as though you are turning inside out. Gemini and Virgo are affected as well, however wherever these signs fall into your birth chart is where you will experience it.
Venus, the planet of love, in happy, vibrant Sagittarius until Jan 23, 2016.
Venus in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius brings to light a need to expand beyond your dreams. To bring joy, to lighten the load so to speak. You begin to question, are you happy? If not, then what are you going to do about it? Possibilities open up when Venus moves into Sagittarius, we are more enthusiastic, more exploratory, discovery of self, along with the power to be anything you want to be. Although it’s direct square to its ruler Jupiter may force a stumble or two, but not without a fight. A good period in which to settle your differences whether with yourself or with anyone else.
New Moon In Capricorn Jan 9, 2016 –
Always action packed with the New Moon in Capricorn – “You are at the beginning of something new in your life. Take action now. No waiting time. Capricorn is about the goat climbing the mountain, seeking to attain a high level. You merge into a higher awareness. Time to empower yourself. The New Moon in Capricorn is about obtaining goals, finishing what you started, completing a project. Those born under Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries are most affected. However based on your time of birth, somewhere in your own charts these signs fall into the houses. And this is where you will feel the power of this transit.
Full Moon In Leo on Jan 23- Time To Play
The Full Moon in Fun social Leo opposite the Sun in collectivist Aquarius, can be a sort of tug-a-war the energies on the Sun are in complete opposition to the emotions of the Moon. The Leo Moon feels passion, while the Aquarius Sun ignites humanitarianism. The good news is that because of Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius, these two signs are in total harmony. Either way we look at it, it’s a win-win..
Dramatic personal expression and ego needs can complicate cooperation, but this lunation is a reminder that strong-willed individuals are invaluable assets when given the attention they deserve.
Mars, the planet of war in Scorpio Jan 3, 2016 – Let the intensity begin!
