April 30 brings a new moon, a partial solar eclipse, which starts in Taurus and ends in Scorpio. Here are a few things you might want to know.
Eclipse seasons push us forward for the six months; within four months, it's the placement and time of change. From today April 30, a partial Lunar eclipse until May 15, the partial solar eclipse is the "window" of time for us to make our clear intentions of what we want to create, bring forward, change, and do.
During this time what we focus on will expand and be with us for the next six months, choose wisely!
I encourage you to focus on gratitude which will help pull you out of the pits of looking at your past and what you believe has been holding you back, and get on the racetrack of looking and moving forward! Reminder, this eclipse energy stays with us until October, when the next partial solar eclipse begins.
Taurus is about our sense of value and worth. We are focused on what brings us security in abundance. I am glad to say it also brings more relaxed and social energy; for those with brain fog good news it helps bring clarity and assists with follow-through, and with this influence, you won't want to engage in challenging situations, people, or drama. It's time to enjoy. I am personally over here doing the happy dance!
This "window" I spoke of gives us the time to plant the seeds, bringing roots in wealth, stability, growth, and beauty. It also helps us release whatever has been taking up space and time to eliminate to grow these new seeds for our future foundation.
It is understanding and acknowledging what we value, how we bring value in, and further building stability in our world. To create and bring value into our lives, we first must know we are of value. We must be the vibration we seek to bring in. Eclipses bring a powerful intention time!
I encourage you to take some time from today before May 15 and write at least 3-5 intentions in the pillar areas of life. Self, relationships, health, business, finances, spirituality, and community.
The partial eclipse is in Taurus and falls in a different astrology house where it will encourage and affect us, depending on your personal natal astrological birth chart. If you have your natal chart, you can look this up, consult an astrologer for more information and the other planetary influences.
With your intentions, if you want extra support, you may consider scheduling a session with me to help gain insights on how to define and focus on where to place your energy, and I can assist you with putting action steps in place. You can also email me your intentions so I can hold their energy with you, for one of my many gifts is being able to transmute and infuse energy. It's much like adding miracle growth for future growth!
I want to add a note: Mercury goes retrograde from May 10 to June 2, which is the planet of glitches, delays in communication, technology, and transportation, and can add unpredictable energy and slow things down for you to receive what is for your highest good. Unfortunately, it's not always what we want. Mercury Retrograde allows the time to revisit financial goals and dive back into what has been neglected. Read the books that have been piling up, and discuss how you can improve communication with your partner. Still, most importantly, it helps face the shadow side that has been put off, in the patterns created, self-resistance, and getting right with yourself by breaking the self-created restraints that have been holding you back. It's time to make the changes you've been putting off.
Eclipses are primarily positive for our expansion but let me remind you; they are unpredictable as well. So I encourage you to be flexible and go with the flow. A way to understand eclipses, seeing it as a computer upgrade, we have to be patient and wait for the download. We are not entirely sure what it will look like after it is done, some components may be deleted or need to go, and the new ones will become user-friendly to make life easier for where we are going! Happy Expansion!
We have entered a time of solid planet influences that challenge us to let go and a vital time for personal and business expansion.
May 26 was a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. Full moons bring endings, closure, and decisions helping us prepare for the new. This full moon in Sagittarius, which is fun-loving and free-spirited, and all about breaking free of the past, the negative, and limitations. It is the first door we walk through, entering the hallway where we have the opportunity to map out our intentions for the next six months.
June 10 is the New Moon Solar eclipse. New Moons bring beginnings, and it reveals the door that we walk through exiting the hallway and our past, while having clarity of what we want to create for the rest of the year.
This eclipse season is about letting go, and changing old patterns, beliefs, and habits limiting one from moving forward. Where are you not showing up for yourself, taking action, or ignoring what needs to be completed, fixed, corrected, or eliminated. This window between eclipses is where you decide what is helpful, and essential fitting all your needs for the new journey!
In my Life and Leadership Coaching work, I task all my clients during this window of eclipse season to write realistic intentions of what they want to map out to create for Business, Finances, Relationships, Health, and Self by June 24 Full Moon that brings closure. It is important to be clear in these areas before walking through the New Moon Solar Eclipse door!
I encourage you to make your list of intentions by June 22, 2021, put it out to the Universe by emailing yourself. If you like an extra boost of support with confidentiality and energy in creating them, you can copy me at Karollee@karollee.net
May 29 - June 22 Mercury Retrograde. This Mercury Retrograde is smack dab in the middle of the eclipses, which makes it beneficial in helping us to dig deep and brings energy in creating ease in moving forward. It will test our patience with communication, technology, travel, contracts, anything that can stall us. It is time for planning, and negotiations, doing technology research but not purchasing electronics or anything with moving parts. It is time to "RE" everything. RE-think, RE-do Re-lease, RE-connect, Re-evaluate, it is time to look into what needs to change. I recommend holding off on taking action until after Mercury turns direct and eclipse energy has calmed down around July 4th.
Before we can move forward into the new, we need to see what limits or brings resistance from the past. Where we are going, those limitations will no longer serve. I suggest waiting until June 22 to finalize or revise your intentions for the Mercury Retrograde may have affected, ended or brought new ideas and clarity around them.
The end of May and all of June is the time of creating by mapping out your future and change the narrative where needed, If not, the Universe will decide and make the changes for you!
Happy Creating! Karol Lee
MESSAGE FROM KAROL LEE It has only felt like a minute, but in reality, it has been over a year since my last Intuitive Astrology sharing. During that time, I continued to upgrade spiritually, deep cleaning my life for the changes needed bringing a stronger divine connection, gratitude, and humbleness.
This time brought moving to a new home, losing loved ones, finding love, expanding my business. It was a time to be mindful of my spiritual practice to serve better those who sought my insights with life and leadership coaching.
The days are quiet, a stillness upon the planet, as we witness this current situation of a Global Pandemic. There is a rainbow after the storm.
This situation allows time to reflect, contemplate the future, and gain clarity of what is valued in one's life. We are facing change and understanding of how fragile life can be. We are witnessing global communication, a bonding of humanity with each country in the same experience, an understanding of how we are all connected, and each person's role are vital to the healing of this global virus. Countries are putting differences on hold, learning to work together to discover a cure to the mystery, and in the challenges seeing the positives. A reset, and recalibration if you will, forcing humanity to be still and find common ground for all
This pandemic is real, and having personal tools that can help navigate through it can bring a sense of peace.
I have watched, read, and listened to a lot of information circulating out there; media alerts, closures, inventory concerns, positive inspirations, spiritual rituals, biblical references, philosophers, Italian balcony singing, artists sharing their musical talents digitally. Stores and restaurants making deliveries, amazing mothers sharing projects for children while teaching to schedule a family's day for the sanity of all. I see this as the beauty within the chaos
When one experiences a challenge or situation that is out of their control, it often brings fear, which is caused by the unknown. Outside influences accelerate these thoughts running rampant with 'what if's.' Taking one out of balance with the peace within, also known as the monkey-mind. One cannot be in fear if they laugh, for it changes the energy, try listening to a comedian, read jokes, or watch animal youtube videos, and see how your focus shifts from worry to ease.
One of my favorite sayings is from Wayne Dyer, stating FEAR is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. It is an illusion that puts emotions into reactive motion.
The intuitive information that has been coming forward is "we are safe." We are in times of much-needed global change and structure breakdowns. We as a whole need to ban together to bring healing to humanity, bridging countries, and restoration of mother earth. Gaia needs a break. During this time, the natural wonders of nature upon Earth will be healing.
Many mystics and philosophers have spoken of this time. I wrote an Intuitive Astrology blog on these changes in January, which you can view here. The stars have aligned to support this Global and Universal change.
Do what is best for you and your loved ones. Cut off social media, change the content on your TV, play board games, or listen to music. Write out your goals, make a budget, clean out the closets, FaceTime with friends, enjoy a bath, read that book, and rest.
Through this pandemic, we as the collective energy, are presented with an opportunity. These challenges are catapulting us to take action and pave a brighter future for generations to come.
With hope all things are possible, remain hopeful!
INTRODUCING GUEST ASTROLOGER BRAD WILLIAMS AND HIS SHARING With the frantic news that is going around because of the Corona Virus, the reflection of Saturn going into Aquarius on 3.21.20 is just what the doctor ordered. Saturn is the planet of structure, and Aquarius is the sign of Freedom. With Saturn going into Aquarius over the next 2.5-3 years, we will get the opportunity to come together in support of one another. The last time Saturn was in Aquarius was from February 1991 to January 1994. In 1991, the World Wide Web was publicly debuted and created a connective bond that puts a friend from Paris in front of you instantly. Today, we can use this technology to keep tabs on our friends and family and come together in ways that will allow us to keep an eye on each other. From yoga classes to cooking classes to friends collaborating in music, we are coming together during this time. Using technology that has been criticized over the years is what now bonds us together. The feeling of being shackled of aloneness is being removed, and the structure that creates this ability is the driving force behind the spiritual implications over the next 2-3 years. You can either join us on this path or continue with the old. The Aquarius energy affords that for you, but Saturn is asking you to join your Freedom with others in solidarity. Which choice will you make? B.W.
Brad Williams has studied Astrology for over 22 years using a synthesis of Evolutionary Astrology pioneered by Steven Forrest and Jefferey Wolfe Green, Brad's gift of reading the stars helps guide others to the doorway of their wholeness.

It has been an exciting start in 2020, and a lot has been happening. I know I have been feeling it! Right out of the gate, we started with eclipse season with Solar eclipse on December 26, Lunar eclipse January 10. and a rare planet event of Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn that we haven't experienced this full constellation in over 500 years. Last time Saturn & Pluto connected was in Libra in November 1982. This influence has karmic repercussions but also to help a collective shift. What all this means is old energy is ending. Thirty-eight years of karmic energy has closed, and deeds will now come to light. It is the karmic reset that is needed.
Planets in Capricorn will operate deliberately and show a steady determination. Among the qualities of the cardinal earth sign of dependability, prudence, and discipline. Capricorn has a serious demeanor.
The planets in Capricorn meanings: Jupiter in Capricorn from December 3, 2019, to December 18, 2020: It brings ethical and conscientious and disciplined in the pursuit of making the right decisions. It makes sure the new ideas are with clarity and strategically planned to make steady progress. It could bring caution or be reserved in one's actions, but the excellent judgment, in the end, pays off.
Pluto in Capricorn from the year 2008 to 2024: Pluto moves slowly and can be in one sign of 12-22 years. It was discovered in 1930 but known that it was in Capricorn in the mid to late 1700s during the time of the American Revolution. This influence brings government reform and environmental issues, which we have already seen, and will continue to see until 2024. Our young generations will be the ones to lead change in these areas, and Pluto has an intense energy.
Saturn in Capricorn December 29, 2017, to March 21, 2020: Saturn brings a realistic view of the world and keeps us grounded as we work toward achieving one's goals. It is efficient and discerning, so one can see things clearly and stay a step ahead. It helps us go the extra mile to get things done.
**Saturn aligns with Pluto: January 12, this major event took place and is a big deal. Its the first time in 35 years and brings in significant economic and social changes. The main impact of Saturn conjunct Pluto will be to break down and recreate social structures that are no longer working. It could mean a significant reworking of political systems and economic frameworks that benefit an elite group at the top of the social hierarchy, which we are witnessing with the Duke and Dutches of Sussex breaking away from the monarchy and being financially independent.
How they affect us: Jupiter also moved into Capricorn, and Capricorn ruled by Saturn. The planet Jupiter growth is about opening doors, and ready to get moving, and Saturn growth is slower, and like a turtle in its ways, and takes its time. These both in same sign brings challenges with it, and we may experience our duality of decisions and actions.
When Jupiter meets with Saturn in one zodiac sign, it becomes life-changing and transformational. Its to be in your true destiny during this time. To know where you want to go in your life, your career, if you are in the professional world you love, it will accelerate. If not, it will feel cumbersome. Jupiter will help catapult you in to your success,
We haven't seen Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn all together since the year 1282-1284. This influence is not for the lazy and brings remarkable growth. Its more about digging in and getting work done, not kicking back on any long holiday, even though we may have the desire for it. On December 2, 2019, to December 2020, Jupiter moved into Capricorn, and its focus is getting more done. It is best to do one main task at a time to achieve reliable outcomes. So, If you have had an idea or wanted to build, create, or do something, then now is the time to map it out and follow through. Don't stay stuck in the idea of it, and also don't rush in or make any reckless decisions. So with Saturn wanting to use Jupiter energy to get things going it.
With all these planet shifts and energy, it brings forward what needs to be revealed and released. Its to understand everyone has karma, and we are all spiritual beings in this human experience, we are not perfect and could never be. Still, we strive to learn through experiences to gain wisdom and to balance karma, which helps us to move forward this year ahead and to soar. It is not for us to judge another if they are following the law, but to understand they are on their journey of discoveries and expansion. This can be uncomfortable, and often times bring some challenges in all areas of life, to highlight what needs to be changed, released, and forgiven. It is also to remember these planetary influences are helping us move forward in creating the year 2020 we desire to keep us pressing in and moving forward in a positive way that forms the foundation for years to come.
November Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio Message. This planet influence started October 31 and goes until November 25.
Mercury Retrograde has gotten a bad rap for being a trouble maker and rightfully so, for it brings challenges in many area's especially with travel and contract delays, personal changes, letting go of hard patterns, break-ups and making-up, money delay, and all kinds of communication hick-ups! Let me mention also issues with things that have moving parts, like cars, cameras, equipment to computers. Nowadays when you hear someone mention Mercury Retrograde is coming, you will most often hear "not again!"
The good news is, Mercury Retrograde is when we can actually grow during the planetary influence from any challenges or situations, for we have to dig deeper, train stronger, learn to navigate through any chaos, drama and challenges and of course that other F word....with forgiveness and learning to let go.
Mercury Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio, for everyone it is like getting stuck in thick muddy water while wearing rain boots. It is known to bring up triggers from childhood up to adulting, bringing focus to what hasn't been looked at to heal and have a final release. This influence takes us in the deep emotional places, into our hidden shadows, secrets, neglect, inner doubt, self-worth, and anger that we have compartmentalized and tucked away. It is screaming it is time to take a look and clear it out, freeing up mind and emotional space. This influence could feel like a Mike Tyson punch, but it is an amazing time to look at the inner aspects of self and who we currently are, and who do we want to be, while offering healings to those things that have been coming forward tapping us on our shoulders for sometime now to get our attention..... and wanting to be released before the 2020 year comes waltzing in.
The inner work is what teaches us how to let go with the old and let in the new. This is the time to get our $hit together, clean up our homes, donate, or give to a friend what we do not need, talk to your mate of any grievances or concerns that need to be talked about. Look in the mirror, deep into your eyes with an understanding it is time to have a clear picture of where you are in life, and if you are not thriving, or not happy it is time to look within or seek guidance to help shift what has been holding you back and to step into where you need and want to be. It's a great time to book a session and get wanded!
In business, it is to clear up any conflicts, communicate, express and resolve, get on the same page of co-workers. Review any policy and procedures, clean up the office, toss out and release what is not serving you or the company. It is time to plant seeds for the 2020 future harvest. Review any legal information, and contracts with the right people, have several steps of eyes look things over and make the appropriate corrections.
With Mercury Retrograde its not the time to make any major purchase, so if you can hold off I highly suggest it.
In the United States, we have Full Moon November 12 bringing closure, endings and the culmination to things like relationships, old beliefs, patterns, how you handled things, contracts, business deals, checks in the mail. Then when Mercury Retrograde is coming to its end, the New Moon shows up on November 26 bringing new beginnings, new seeds of ideas, taking action steps, putting into place what you want to create. This month it's time to get things done before the December 12 Full Moon and December 26 New moon that is the closure and completion of 2019 and the set up for 2020. Review your intentions and re-evaluate what you want to achieve in this short time. If you still have things to accomplish that are important, I suggest you press in and do it before 2020 is here!
It is time a great time to face things, clearing up any communication issues, cleaning out in any personal and inner space what is not serving you, look at your habits and patterns, work environment and how you behave in it. Work on these things, and trust that when Mercury Retrograde turns direct on November 25, and the new Moon the next day comes, things will speed up with moving you forward and you will feel refreshed and ready! Enjoy the ride and embrace the healings!
Here we are again…smack dab in middle of Eclipse season pushing us forward for big change(s)!
It’s much like an amusement park ride that you were hesitant to get on. You know the type: immediate realization you have no control of your own experience, hanging on for dear life, getting a bit banged up along the way. But then, when it’s over, you realize it pushed you out of your comfort zone. You were glad you did it. Joy sets that you made it through the experience… changed! Yeah, this is a lot like that. So hang on, we have several things happening in July.
This month brings fresh starts and new opportunities with major acceleration. Not only do we have eclipses happening that are associated with significant events in one’s life, we also have planets in retrograde. It is important for us to understand how all this will affect us, but most importantly, how we can best use this energy to our benefit of moving us forward on our journey.
First, we had Solar Eclipse on July 2, and coming up on July 16, we will have a Lunar Eclipse with six planets in retrograde. Keep in mind the energy of the eclipses amplify the current retrogrades in how they are effecting us. “Intense” is a good word to use, but this is also a gateway of our transformation that will move us into the next level of our destiny.
Solar eclipse July 2nd in Cancer: This brought all kinds of emotions and energy, with a chance for a fresh start. It has and will continue to open doors so that you can get out of your ruts or your stuck patterns. These next six months will be a time to reflect, to see what patterns are in your life that have been holding you back. Dig deep to do the work. You should expect some discomfort and could possibly need some damage control afterwards. Increase self care for ease, and utilize my services to help you move through it.
Lunar Eclipse July 16 in Capricorn: It is this year’s heaviest aspect of 2019 and taking us to a new level. With it being in Capricorn, the mountain goat is reminding us how strong we are. It helps us navigate around some challenging terrain, allowing us to reflect on our goals and new possibilities. It motivates us to let go of what is weighing us down. It is teaching us to let go of people that may not be at the level of our own growth. It will push us to shed the past and let go of our old patterns. Big changes are likely.
Remember, Eclipse energy moves us forward for six months. It’s an energy that is on steroids, much like being in a fast moving rocket ship with a one-way ticket. But now we also have planets in retrograde that are slowing us down to review and make sure we are doing our inner work. These eclipses are forcing us to review what we are doing, to see what seeds of choice we are planting, and if they are in alignment with our goals, intentions and values. If we are not aligned, this will cause stress, and it will break things down that are not serving us just to keep us on our path. It is putting heavy pressure upon us to change our ways, to see things differently, to try harder, press in, all while releasing what does not serve us. It is to bring a spiritual strength out of us that helps us release judgment, grief, anger and then revels our actions that self-sabotage. It’s a fast effective energy that can be very intense. Eclipse energy forces us to be cracked open so the greatness can come out. It can be uncomfortable but the new makes us humble in our process, and gives us empowerment in our actions. We will be pushed to our limits. We may have to choose a path, person, place, and we may even feel torn. But the decisions made come with the information and guidance from the eclipse energy. It’s all about changing patterns, letting go of things that hold us back. You may consider this a good time to book a session with me for insights and guidance, for It can be confusing, but much like the hokey pokey, its to turn ourselves around and that's what its all about!
July 31 is Black New Moon in Leo. The Black New Moon is very rare and comes when we have two new moons in one month. This brings new beginnings after the eclipse, helping us water the seeds that were planted with our intentions for the next six months. New beginnings means it is time to put those goals into action.
To put in perspective of how intense this energy can be, we have not had the same aspects since September 11, 2001. It can bring some violent energy globally. This can be in human actions against fellow mankind or Mother Nature such as the recent Earthquakes.
Six Retrograde planets and how they are affecting us. Retrogrades are planets slowing down that help us get things corrected, right before moving us forward. It’s like God hit the pause button so we can review everything and check the list many times over to make sure we are pleased with what we have during this time. It’s an editing process and brainstorming session at the same time. Again intense but powerful. The planets also affects the areas as they fall in your astrology chart and house. You can email me at Karollee@karollee.net for more information that pertains to your personal birth chart, if like more guidance.
The following six Planets listed are in Retrograde – Remember Retrogrades test and challenges us to do our internal work for spiritual growth on a personal level. It’s like a lot of hard pop quizzes to get us to grow, in comparison the final exam of the eclipses that lets us move to the next level.
Mercury– July 7, 2019 –August 1, 2019 (Ruler of Virgo and Gemini) Brings wisdom we have gained to help us correct mistakes from our past. And it helps us avoid making the same mistakes again. Seeing Patterns, Re-lease, Re-do, Re-create Re-evaluate, Re-view, etc. This planet in retrograde beings confusion and complication, for it is the ruler of communication. Things can be taken out of context in any form communication, be it verbal or nonverbal. This always affects any negotiations, contracts, and money. No contracts should be signed under this influence for there is something that needs to be discovered for your own protection. Time to back up everything electronic, watch your self speak, walk away from any fight you may have and ask yourself, “Is what I am about to say worth the battle.
Jupiter – April 10, 2019 – August 11. 2019 (Ruler of Sagittarius and Pisces) This brings detours and course corrections in areas of your personal charts. But, more so, makes us look at the big picture. It allows us to see missed opportunities and deep inner work that helps us on our journey of self- realization for greater potential.
Saturn – April 30, 2019 –September 18, 2019 (Ruler of Capricorn) This can bring feelings of self-doubt. It helps us revisit our limits, responsibilities, discipline and authority. It brings a hard hitting reality check. This will sort out Karmic debts and bring the past, present, and future into alignment.. which is always challenging but very good!
Neptune – June 21, 2019 – November 27, 2019 (Ruler of Aquarius) The planet of dreams and creativity. This will be softer affect than others, but will unveil things we need to discover. It peals the layers of your ego, to connect with our souls path and discover our deeper self. There could be strong sense of self-deception, or a experience of “gas lighting” from others. This can certainly bring about hard truths, but it helps us create and see things differently.
Pluto – April 24, 2019 – October 3, 2019 (Ruler of Scorpio) This is a time of self-reflection about power, control, and manipulation that may be in our life, either from ourselves or another person. We will be forced to let go and change our ways. Obsessive or compulsive behavior with food, drugs, gambling, racism, suspicion, secrecy etc. turns around and highlighted to be seen and corrected. Just know that the more the destructive behavior in your life the more intense the withdrawal stage will be. But is time to release the control of destroying things in your life for your spiritual power and personal greatness. This aspect is seriously intense and hard work.
Chiron = July 8, 2019 – December 13, 2019 This affects all mental health, emotions and spirituality. It is time to notice the signs; synchronicity for these are helping us with our self-empowerment. It brings a challenging effect in relationships and decisions.
SUMMARY: This is a great time to write out your intentions for the next six months utilizing the eclipse energy of what you want to achieve, while also using the retrogrades to see what you want to change in your life with your self-expansion. I highly recommend you type and email it to yourself, putting it into the Universe what you want to create. And for added support copy and email to me. I can assist in tweaking them to get the best energy out, and you will be supported in your intention creation. Remember all my client work is confidential.
It is time to have grace with yourself and others. If agitated be careful on your actions towards another for they could bring more problems than you expected. Time of reflection is important for inner growth. If you have a partner in your life, join forces of what you want to create together.
This maybe an intense time, but remember it is also the most magical! Enjoy where the ride takes you in the end.
It’s HERE! Eclipse Season has officially started with this January 5, 2019 New Moon Solar Eclipse. It will be bringing the Shake, Rattle and Roll for the next 6 months.
It’s HERE! Eclipse Season has officially started with this January 5, 2019 New Moon Solar Eclipse. It will be bringing the Shake, Rattle and Roll for the next 6 months.
Listen up...Here is what you can expect:Eclipse season allows us room for growth, expansion and continued evolution. Each eclipse opens a portal for us to step through into the other side and face things we need to confront so that our journey continues. It allows us to release patterns and limiting beliefs that hold us back. This can bring changes by closing the door of the old and stepping through another door into the new.
A new moon happens when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun making it look like there's nothing in the sky at all. When there's a solar eclipse during a new moon — even a partial one — the moon darkens the Sun as well. Although the January solar eclipse is a partial one, it is still going to be more powerful than your average new moon. This means that that energy it brings will be even more influential.
Saturday, January 5th The New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse are happening in the zodiac sign Capricorn which will help us out for the next six months. It will be bringing a lot of Capricorn energy and affects ALL zodiac signs!
Capricorn is a sign of structure and one can even say obsessive structure. The Capricorn Sea Goat is slow and steady, disciplined, dedicated and determined on its’ path moving forward. It is done with caution and a strong urge to protect and provide for those they love.
This new moon eclipse can be the beginning of a powerful planning phase which will provide some amazing rewards by the next full moon Eclipse on July 16. It isn’t going to be easy to understand the six month journey when it first emerges for it will take some time. We just need to have faith in the timing of things unfolding and direction we are being led by opening our hearts and trusting our intuition.
This six-month window is one of focus and work in order to achieve the reward. In every eclipse season there will be twist and turns - which can bring the shake and rattle - with a few unexpected surprises that may or may not be comfortable. Hang in there because the outcome will be beneficial which is the roll!
With personal, business, love, service, spiritual, and any area of expansion you desire, capturing this influence for the next 6 months is important. This means its time to get serious with those goals and intentions!
This is the energy that will provide the extra motivation to achieve your intentions. Under this eclipse, we are forced to put into place our new visions for the New Year as well as release what no longer serves us for our highest good. This is the time to set your practical and attainable intentions. It is a great time to cement your intentions by writing them down. Send them in an email to yourself allowing the energy to go out into the Universe and if you choose to copy me it will bring extra support for them to come to fruition.
It is the time to turn things around. Again, this affects all zodiac signs but for Aries, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces zodiac signs the affects will be much stronger. You may feel the pressure to make changes and it’s the stars saying this is the time for the NEW you and you are being positively or uncomfortably encouraged to step into it.
This New Moon is bringing a positive karmic energy to each sign of the zodiac, and helping to connect soul mates, soul tribes, release of karmic contracts and help for all to move forward. This is VERY good!
This is about new beginnings in areas of your public life, career, reputation, achievement and accountability and the effects can be felt for six months. It is a great time to schedule an intuitive session or commit to your Journey and start Life Coaching sessions with me!
Dates to know: Jan 5 – New Moon ~ Solar Eclipse in Capricorn Jan 21 – Full Moon ~ Lunar Eclipse in Leo
Watch for an Information post coming soon on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo for January 21… you won’t want to miss it for these two moon effects work together!
Venus Retrograde: October 5, 2018 in Scorpio and goes direct November 16 in Libra.
Venus is the feminine planet and teaches us about what matters most in our life while when in retrograde it shows what needs to be healed and released.
Venus Retrograde in Scorpio brings a deep, mysterious, karmic release with potential wicked ways. She points out the dark side we keep tucked away so we can clean that energy out and fully release it to allow the new into our life.
Venus turns retrograde only every 18-19 months and when it does we all can feel the affects of it. This is known as one of the most significant transits that can happen. The last time Venus was retrograde in Scorpio and Libra was October-November 2010. Look back and see what was happening in your life during that time and try to remember what was released or evolved during that time.
When a planet goes into retrograde it is offering us time to correct, heal, or release. Venus Retrograde is a time of self-discovery, exploration and keeping ourselves in check.
Venus is the planet of pleasure and defines what you love such as partnerships and marriage, what you attract and appreciate as well as money and possessions. Venus affects our values and principles, social, creative, and artistic interests, personal talents and abilities. When in Scorpio it will exhibit persistence and intensity through actions that may not be out in the open.
It is also the planet of beauty and this is not the time to have any elective surgery. Skin enhancements or injections, new Haircuts or color changes are a big no no during this time. This can be an illusion of what might work for you in your desire of change but during Venus Retrograde you may end up very disappointed and need to correct any of changes made.
Venus retrograde is here to say it is time to dig deep into the most sensitive level of our soul. When in retrograde these same things need to be reviewed for they may seem to run cold or have issues that need to be looked at to heal. It can bring challenges in love and relationship to see if they are stable enough to handle growth and navigate through it together.
Oh, you will want to know this part - Venus Retrograde brings back your past….the return of any old flames, ex’s, and lover’s surface, even karmic connections. It is the window of time that Divine has given us to bring closure to any long-dead relationships that have been a mournful love lost.
This period could bring an ending to a worn out relationship that is holding you back and to heal any challenges that have been ignored.
Venus Retrograde is the time that we look within ourselves to gain a clearer sense of what we want, what we can and cannot do without and attracting what we desire. It IS a very powerful time.
We find ourselves being vulnerable, with lots of emotions during this time. This is to help us reflect on what brings us value and what are we holding on to from the past that is limiting us. Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is the the sign of deep emotions going to the dark places. Scorpio is where the carnal sexual desires and appetites reside.
Venus Retrograde will be intense for any Scorpio and Libra signs and most helpful for Cancer and Pisces, but, you need to know this does affect all signs.
With the month of October and Halloween, Venus Retrograde could be viewed as the good witch and wicked witch at this time for Venus is always good but when in retrograde she has a different side. To be in Scorpio she can and will be bringing out her wicked Jezebel ways if not used to heal and move forward.
I offer a warning - This time can bring Karmic connections with people coming into your life in which you feel you have known them before. This is where the wicked ways can seep in bringing a wild love affair and then quickly dying after. Proceed with caution with any new relationship. If during this time you find yourself involved with a new love or relationship, you should know that it could be a narcissistic affair or driven by sexual desire without any foundation to stand. It may have come to teach a valuable lesson for your personal growth but also can bring a deep wound which could take many months to recover from.
This is a good time to revisit creative ideas and it offers us the time to build and create what we want in a relationship, art, business, etc.
It is not a time for lavish spending for you will have buyer’s remorse. It is better to wait until after December 8 for we have Mercury Retrograde starting the very same day Venus goes direct November 16 to December 6, 2018. By December 11 you will be clear.
It is a great time to release the energy that may haunt you of the ex’s, and lost loves by doing this exercise and ritual of putting to rest for good. Hand write a letter to the person or thing that you want to release expressing all your emotions, feelings, anger, pain by pouring out your heart fully to expel any residue of the relationship or situation. THEN ask God/Universe/Divine to release this with love from you completely allowing you to move forward. Read the letter out loud to the higher power, and when finished, burn it completely! Every bit! When finished take a few deep breath’s and know that it is done and focus on what you do want in your life.
NOTE: We just had a New Moon October 8, 2018 offering new beginnings and clean slate for intentions, just make sure you are clear on what you want.
2018 New Moon, Solar Eclipse in Cancer = Transformational time! July 12, 2018 is the new moon in Cancer. On top of that we have a solar eclipse. What this means is that there is 6 months of transformational energy to get you to where you place your intentions. It is time to CREATE!
The sign of Cancer represents family, safety, security, real estate, karmic connections, things that we possess and the emotion of “I feel”
The Moon defines your feelings and emotions, instinct and intuition, memory and imagination, habits, patterns, home, family, mother, females in general, emotional responses, moons and ability to adapt to change.
The moon rules the sign of Cancer - making these two work together to bring transformation and to wake up areas of your life that have needed change. This energy is asking us to dig deep within our souls to uncover what needs to be awakened, reinvented and released. It can bring up uncomfortable feelings that we need to take a deeper look to find a way to release them.
The New Moon Eclipses are all powerful new beginnings and it should be noted that solar eclipses open up portals for radical transformation creating ripples of change for many months to come (6 months to be exact) This transit can also reveal hidden fears so you can transform them to create a more healthy lifestyle.
We also have a full moon Lunar eclipse Friday, July 27 which brings endings to long over due changes that have been dragging.
Eclipse season is often associated with significant events in ones’ life. This energy is good even if at times it can present itself as a challenge. The eclipse energy always helps us to elevate our lives to the next level. Trying to resist or fight the changes that come with this energy will not help you, instead you have to surrender and allow yourself to be guided.
Here is how you can take advantage of today’s New Moon Solar Eclipse energy. Today (no later than tomorrow) you should write out the intentions that you would like to create and bring forward into your life for the next 6 months. It is a guide that allows you a way to focus on the changes. You are being proactive, and you have the energy of the eclipse to work with you. If you choose not to set intentions its ok. Just know that this allows Divine the freedom to choose for you and most often they are challenges we would prefer to not have and the energy of creating can be lost.
Take time to think about the key areas in your life. Health, Business, Personal, Spiritual Family, Love and Relationship, and Financials, Create and write out in an email to yourself what you desire to co-create with divine. Once you set this intention I promise Divine will show up and co-create with you making them evolve in a healthy way. If you like an added dose of extra energy and accountability copy me in the email and I will review, maybe tweak the words for highest good, support your venture and also use to discuss in our Life Coaching or Intuitive sessions to help you navigate in achieving and accountability.
I AM ready. I AM open, I create, I allow, and I receive.
What the heck is going on now! May 18, 2018 to April 26, 2026 we have Uranus in the zodiac sign of Taurus. It takes Uranus 84 years to orbit the sun, entering a new zodiac sign about every seven years. It hasn’t been in Taurus since 1934-1942.
I don't know how to put this, but trust me, Uranus is a big deal. Uranus in Taurus is not a comfortable position for either. Uranus is of unpredictability and change, while Taurus likes consistency and stability. Complete opposites with lots of challenge, learning to find balance of moving forward into the changes needed, while breaking old ways, both personally and globally. I feel a plot twist coming. The planet Uranus moves slowly but has a big impact, much like being in the boxing ring with Muhammad Ali. Uranus comes into areas that need a wake up call and shakes things up. This shake up does help with evolution, and these next 7 years revolve around the sign of Taurus that rules money, possessions, values, technology and skills. See where I am going with this… Uranus has a shock value to its energy, it is known for radical disruption, and is all about change and revolution, while demanding freedom and independence. It is unpredictable and exciting. Uranus is definitely known for the element of surprise. Taurus rules finances, material goods, food, farming, music, arts, environment, personal values, security, stability and hates change. It is the “I have” sign and likes being attached to physical things and pleasures. Taurus clings to the past and Uranus focuses on the future. Much like going skydiving. Taurus’s hands hold onto the plane with all its might, preparing and planning ways for the jump, gaining insights of all the dynamics at play. Meanwhile Uranus unexpectedly and quickly tips the plane with an element of surprise, forcing the hands to let go. It’s the rush of the unexpected, but the experience of the fall, while pushing yourself into an expansive rush, is the part imprinted in your memory. Follow where I am going with this…. Just when you think things are one way, it proves to go or be another. During this aspect, we may bare witness to the continued attractions of different race’s, religion, age gaps, and same gender relationships. While overcoming the challenges, these relationships build a long lasting love and unbreakable bond. May also witness changes in work structures, more digital, or work from home businesses. Countries and States taking on independence of what changes they want with their values. Breaking free from strongholds, merging with new allies, fighting back, taking a stand and having a voice. We could see a change in the much debated crypto-currency evolving and gaining momentum. Tech savvy Uranus can reinvent the way we spend, save, invest and design our lifestyles, bringing Wall Street and banking changes, expansion in the digital world. Investing in our own personal security much like buying homes, for those who rent. Not being bound to possessions or buying luxury toys, but enjoying life with travel, simplifying but with security, allowing your independence and freedom instead of being shackled to debt or work. What ever it is… global changes are coming that are history book type stories. And Uranus enters Taurus the very same day of 2018’s only Taurus new moon on May 15, 2018. Great time to set your intentions for the next 6 weeks. It has a lot of powerful energy around it to make them happen. It’s a Universal, Rock the Kasbah kind of party!
I admit it! A lot is going on and the cycles of moons, eclipses and planets are pushing us forward into change.
We have no choice and any resistance will only cause pain, frustration and chaos. But, if we allow the twists and turns of life to lead us forward we get to continually witness expansion and do what our souls most desire - creating!
To me this early part of 2018 is like witnessing a structure being torn down with great resistance and sadness for it has many memories and it carries a piece of you with it. When the debris is cleared away it allows a vision to come forward of what can be. It sparks motivation and creativity that brings in the new. When we realize we get to choose and manifest a new vision in an unlimited way, we feel empowered and create with a passion. We celebrate what is to come and will last for a a long time. That grief once felt is replaced with joy and excitement of the new.
January 2018 came bringing 2 full moons - one on Jan 1, 2018 and the second came bringing the start of the eclipse season on January 31 with a Full Moon Eclipse. A good rule of thumb to remember is that Eclipses come in pairs.
Note: Eclipses are associated with significant events in one’s life.
January 31: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo- Tough love February 15: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius – Turbo charged new moon bringing balance.
Whenever there is an Eclipse emotions will get all stirred up and we may even feel edgy, sensitive and snappy. This brings forward areas of healing and allows us to take a deeper look into our life of what is serving us and what is not.
The January Super Blood Blue Moon (or Old Moon) brought the Lunar Eclipse in Leo. The last one was in 1982. It’s here to shake things up, such as boundaries, relationships, being heard, letting go and creating new connections.
Full Moons highlight and magnify problems in our life, helping us focus on them in order to bring balance by encouraging us to get creative to fix, start something new or release what is holding us back. Don’t loose focus on the problem but stick with the solution. What you focus on expands!
The Jan 31 Lunar eclipse came bringing closure to the Eclipse energy from August 2017. We were given 6 months of lessons, changes, growth and endings to help our journey ahead. Whatever the August 2017 Eclipse brought you will see come to closure. While riding that August 2017 Solar Eclipse wave, you may have created a new vision, business, addition to the family or made relationship or lifestyle changes. This Eclipse brought memorable events into our life and they highlight where change was needed. It mostly affects Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
February is the only month in 2018 without a Full Moon. Full moons are a time of closing doors, endings and letting go. February is providing time to focus on the future and not the past.
February 15 brings a new moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius effecting Taurus, Leo, Scorpios and Aquarius signs as well as Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. New wave, new ride! The reality of a cause or relationship that needs some changes will become apparent. if you are devoted to something so deep that you are at the point of losing yourself its time to make some changes. There may be a current job, relationship or friendship that you are deeply devoted to but that is making you unhappy. This will challenge your relationship and devotion to see if it is really worth it. To truly love is to give with out expectation but if your giving is out of balance, its time to make changes.
On Feb 16 the Chinese New Year Changes from the year of the Rooster to the Dog. If you are like me it is time to Feng Shui the home. Each year my home is aligned with the incoming energy cycle and their influences adjusting my home environment to make it as harmonious as possible for the current year. The year of the dog brings a grounding that helps us create the life we desire in a solid way. The dog is associated with the Earth, and helps us remain rooted in creating.
Planet Jupiter entered Scorpio on October 10, 2017 until November 8, 2018. Don’t let that scare you. Scorpio is known to be a mysterious, secretive, intense, and passionate sign. This energy helps us take off the rose colored glasses and look within to what really matters and what within us needs to heal. Many may seek major life changes or seek professional help with a counselor or life coach to dig deep. Jupiter defines our understandings of the larger picture in life. bringing advancement and progress. This inspires prosperity and abundance, optimism and joy as well as spirituality and opportunity. It brings generosity, honesty and deep thoughts. It’s a transformational time, and is best to utilize this for self healing and moving on from what has been holding you back.
Mercury Retrograde March 22 to April 15 helps you make sure there are no weak links in your new creations and relationships.

Mercury Retrograde March 22 to April 15 – Me telling you this is more a save the date to have awareness for if you are booking travel or planning any major software updates or communication events. More information to come...
Mercury Retrograde December 3-22 in Sagittarius (Fire) and the Full Moon in Gemini (Air) December 3, 2017 will be a December to Remember. It's all about Balance.This may look like a lot…and honestly it is. I need to say, “Strap on your seatbelt”
But I prefer to give an explanation for why and what you should know. There are only certain areas effected by Mercury Retrograde and the Full Moon energy of emotion can bring the fire to the fuel for us to heal before the New Year arrives.
As an intuitionist I pick up the information that is important for us to know and how this energy and the planets affect us. It is our final month to bring closure to 2017 and clear out any nagging thoughts or situations that are unresolved. It is about gaining clarity and removing all the mental blocks and thought patterns to enter 2018 with a fresh new outlook.
This Mercury Retrograde in fire sign Sagittarius starts the same day as the Full Moon in Gemini. What does this mean for us?
The Month of December can be filled with miscommunication and lots of emotions. Breathe before speaking and always make sure you say what you mean but don’t say it mean. Full Moon in Gemini energy is having us express our feelings and emotions from confusion, delusion, deception and disappointment. Mercury also rules the signs of Gemini influencing these emotions. Hallmark Channel ratings will be a big hit this Month.
The planet of Mercury affects all of the following: intellect, intelligence, ability to think, gathering of information, communication while speaking and writing, Contracts, agreements, siblings, work and co-workers, and neighbors. It defines the thinking process and mental faculties.
The Sagittarius sign rules these areas: Religion, Law (dealings with attorneys and legal affairs), College, Higher Education, Brothers and Sister in laws, foreign travel (long journeys and air travel), vacations, teachers, and publishing. These can all be areas of strong concern. Law, Airlines and Educational systems are being highlighted to me with a strong energy.
Some believe Mercury Retrograde can be a challenging time but over the years I have discovered it is more of a saving grace and great teacher for our learning and expansion. It allows time to RE-think, RE-do, RE-evaluate, RE-lease in areas that need to be fixed.
Take extra care that all legal documents have been reviewed , double check emails before hitting the send button and use caution with your words to siblings, significant others and co-workers. Someone could take what you say and easily be affected.
Be aware of the pessimistic side for this energy will bring it forward. Keep your focus on being hopeful, and having a successful outcome of what ever you are facing.
Mercury will bring expansion to what ever you are focusing on. Are you focusing on your healing, releasing, success and prosperity, or travails, hardships and financial lack? Whatever thoughts are circling around in your mind, just know that the December Mercury Retrograde and Full Moon energy is like a direct dial into creating and expanding that focus.
NOTE: Mercury Retrograde can affect travel plans. It is best to double check all flight information and if changing flights make sure you have enough layover time between. If not it could bring delay throwing all of your connections off. Check in advance on all Hotels, car services and bank accounts for your travels. You will thank me later.
If you plan on purchasing anything with moving parts for a Holiday Gift such as: computers, drones, watches, or automobiles I suggest you do it by Monday 27th before the shadow energy of Mercury Retrograde starts or wait until December 29th. If not it could be a major disappointment. REmember -To use this final Mercury Retrograde wisely, RElease - What is not serving you before we enter 2018. REdo - What in your life is showing up as a weak link to be fixed. REevaluate - All avenues of your path and decisions. REview - All emails, contracts, travels, business structure, intentions.
We are coming to the end of 2017, moving through holiday time and planet changes. Here are a few t things you should know.
November 4 – Full Moon in Taurus – Success, Love and building prosperity
November 7 – Venus Goddess of Love in Scorpio – Deep intense actions, Sexy Secrets, loyalty and commitment, fearless in intimacy
November 18 – New Moon – Scorpio - is a rather Challenged one with other planet happenings but brings a time of reflection on Internal patterns of behavior that needsto be changed. Deep dark are secrets released and it is a rebirth time for a fresh new start, for self- empowerment and for taking bold steps into the new. December 3-22 – Mercury Retrograde – Keep an eye out for my intuitive reading on what to expect with this.
November 4 Full Moon - Taurus Bull is in the house
No matter your sign you will still feel the effects under the full moon in Taurus. It is time to say goodbye to old beliefs, habits, and relationship baggage and to move past family drama. Make room for positive changes and creating your new and make your life the way you want it to be.
The moon represents our deepest personal needs, our basic habits, reactions and unconscious. The moon pushes us into making important decisions. The cycle of the full moon moves into a new sign each month covering all 12 astrology signs in the year and helps us make changes for our expansion. This month Full Moon in Taurus is asking what in your life is completed and what needs to go away. If you reference the past its time to let that baggage go. It is time to Fine-Tune and make your dreams come true.
The Frost Moon in Taurus is here to illuminate the clutter that needs to go into the trash and be emptied completely. This applies to both material and digital things. The great thing is that this shouldn’t be overly challenging or painful for those ready to let go and let in the new that happens to be waiting at the door. But, if you are stubborn as the Taurus bull, you won't experience this gift of change in your life and can be missing out on some amazing successes this month.
It’s a passionate and creative full moon bringing learning experiences, and just so you know… intimate relationships are highlighted. ❤️
It is time to open up ones heart and allow a new comfort level and sexuality with your partner. The affection that you feel will easily be communicated by letting yourself unleash your romantic side. This will prove to be the right move and will strengthen your relationship. Maybe its time to let everyone know you are no longer swiping right to find the right one. In fact It also brings forward time to clean house and un-friend those people you have been waiting to let go of. This is the perfect time to etch-a-sketch ex’s that have long needed to go away from your digital data completely.
Full Moons bring forward what is complete and time to let go - this includes relationships that have fulfilled their path. Uncoupling with love might be a theme for this time. The Taurus energy is about getting things done. Great opportunities can be coming your way if you are open and see the signs. Did I mention money follows in the steps of change? Prosperity is in the air for us all. But you need to let go in order to receive. Looking back will distract you from what is in front of you. It can hurt to let go, but this month it can hurt more to hold on. Let go of the past so the door to your future can be opened, and remember that when you let go something better comes along. It’s a Universal law of change.
I am a believer in writing your desires down for they bring clarity in areas needed. This month is a great time to go deeper and list what it is you want in life. These could be in business success, health, finances or personal relationships. If looking for a relationship make a realistic list of what you want in that partner. What does that relationship look like? If currently in a relationship, get together and list what you both desire to create and change for in next month Mercury goes retrograde December 3-22. This gives you time to implement change in your life before the February 2018 Lunar Eclipse wave ends.
It is a time to think on your feet and be prepared to adapt to whatever comes your way.
Mercury retrogrades are suitable for all the ‘re′ words: rethinking, reflecting, revising, and redoing. Don′t start anything new but revisit existing plans and make sure they hold water. The eclipse will give an energy charge making it possible for you to move forward with clarity once all the planetary pandemonium has passed
Mercury retrograde vibrates the energy that highlights the areas that need correction. It brings forth changes and outcomes that are for the highest good and it also brings challenges. This Mercury Retrograde is happening during the energy between the two eclipses making the energy particularly powerful.
There is a death and rebirth of sorts. Read more about that on the Solar Eclipse post that was previously sent.
This energy can bring endings and beginnings in relationships. This will allow for a new one or it has the ability to strengthen a current relationship for a solid future. It all depends on what the relationship foundation is built on.
This cycle starts in Virgo and ends in Leo which tells us this will bring significant changes in finances and or love life.
I don’t prefer to point out negatives but if we look at this like electrical wiring there are both negative and positive areas. Both have a key role for the flow of energy.
Challenges can be: areas of fear, insecurity, suspicion, lying, deception, fraud, and adultery just to name a few. This energy helps us to correct all that is out of alignment and to create a new life. There are times that no amount of love in a relationship can be corrected. This is especially true if it carries deceit, suspicion and mistrust and will make for an impossible reconciliation. If there is fraud it will be revealed. These challenges bring forward strength and opportunities to improve your relationships in love and finances.
If you are single or in a relationship you can expect to be talking about trust and matters of the heart. You may commit to a relationship or see if one works. You may also may choose to end one. Remember each relationship is important for the time being and not all are forever. It is to see the lessons you gained with that relationship, even out of negative situations, which allows you to grow and apply the wisdom into your life.
Mercury retrograde can always prove to be a gremlin and play havoc with communication, travel, electronics, and mind thoughts. Double check all details in your communication in emails and social media before hitting the send button…oh and make sure you are sending it to the right person. Remember what you say, good and bad, can be revealed for others to see.
Mercury brings a delay in contracts and financial payments coming your way. Business negotiations will be in a phase of flux so avoid signing contracts at all costs if for a new venture. If it is one you have been working on for some time then you should be ok. Just double check all details before signing on the dotted line.
When Mercury goes retrograde it is not the time to do any surgical beautification procedures. Do not go “under the knife,” including Botox or other injections. The outcome can bring a disappointment.
Remember there is a shadow period of Mercury Retrograde so you can expect to feel the energy starting today!
How to best utilize this energy: Always have caution with your words for they become alive creating your future. What you speak today creates your tomorrow. Speak positive with others in all you do. Double-check all facts, numbers, contracts, trains, planes and automobiles when traveling. Prepare to take what you need during times of delays. Inform others of potential delays, to disarm any negative perceptions
Positive: There is a protection in this energy. It can make you see that an investment may not be as good as it looked and allow time to do more research and to correct any area that could save you money. It can allow time to have communication in a relationship or to correct or change any reckless actions that could sabotage it. It can allow you to eliminate old habits for a better you. Look within and be aware of any negative thoughts that are playing in your mind and immediately change that negative belief with a positive one breaking any repetitive patterns. Negative thoughts are chains and shackles holding you back from your greatness.
Its time to break any negative habits. Mercury retrograde is like boot camp for correcting any areas that have discord to make us stronger. Embrace it and know it is making you stronger for your future in business and love.
August 2017 Lunar and Solar Eclipse. What you should know.
August 2017 Brings Change and Focus on Business and Love.
This month brings powerful energy that affects us for our highest good. There is so much information to share it can be overwhelming. I found it a bit challenging to simplify and share what can be helpful and important so that you can navigate with ease. I hope this does.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on August 7, 2017
Mercury Retrograde on August 12, 2017 – September 5, 2017 (Keep an eye out for this post later this week)
New Moon, Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017
August brings an adrenalin rush of the unexpected with a side of fear of the unknown to all. This month will be like a ride on a roller coaster at an amusement park, and I am here to tell you to make sure your seatbelt is snug and snapped in. Some will cry, some will laugh and some will toss their hands up and go with the flow. Remember it does come to an end and you will know whatever your experience change for your highest good will fall into place
FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE
The beginning of August brings the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on August 7, 2017 in the astrological sign of Aquarius. Aquarians are like butterflies and can be all over the place much like our emotions may be.
The strongest and most important energy is felt four (4) days before the eclipse and remains in the background of the eclipse itself. So, you may start feeling an intense energy starting August 3, 2017
While the Lunar Eclipse affects the astrological signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius the most significantly all signs will feel it.
The lunar eclipse highlights emotions, home life and partners. This encourages harmony in relationships through endings or beginnings
This month of eclipses will have many effects and can bring many emotions to the surface. At times you may feel like you are all over the place with ambition, drive and agitation. It helps you to aim high but can bring polarities in your life with potential relationship tensions.
These tensions highlight what needs to be corrected or what you do not desire any longer in your life. This energy puts a focus on relationships that are out of balance and motivates all to become more in touch with ones own needs and intentions with others.
Part of this phase of the Lunar eclipse highlights major events and has influence over humanity bringing changes in the global political world. It is also known to bring storms at sea.
NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE
The Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 is the first since February 26, 1979 that Americans have experienced. Eleven states will witness and experience the eerie sensation of Totality but no state in the contiguous 48 will escape the energy of it.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse is the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle.
Eclipses come in pairs that complement each other with the work that they bring. They bring the energy that will last until the January 2018 Lunar Eclipse.
This new moon solar eclipse comes in Leo which affects those born in these astrological signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. While these signs are affected the most Significantly, no signs are immune from this energy or affect.
For those of you into astrology, the new moon falls in the house of Leo, the fifth house that represents Romance, expression, creativity, and showmanship. It moves into Virgo, the 6th house, representing health, organization, efficiency and logic.
There are many astrological interpretations of this. Please, understand I am not an astrologer but an intuitive that receives information on the energy and planets.
When any eclipse affects the moon, expect an ending of an old habit or way of experiencing life. A solar eclipse represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. The new future ahead ,old habits, behaviors and beliefs most often are questioned and the desire for new and creative ways to move forward in ones journey can become a priority.
During this time animals can express confusion. Birds may act a bit crazy and so will some people.
This is a great time to make a fresh start in areas in which you want change. Write a list of what it is you desire to have in your life and allow this energy to help you make the changes needed to achieve them. Setting intentions are important for their influence lasts for six months instead of four weeks.
This change motivates us to succeed with business and projects. You will feel an intense energy or drive in your careers allowing you to meet your goals. Along with this please remember the Lunar eclipse energy and focus of personal relationships are still in affect.
This time points to bold changes leading to long-term success. Your efforts and hard work in the past will bring growth and position you on the stage for all to see.
There is a caution here- Many will desire to rise without care for the drive of success will be so strong. Remember the old saying “Don’t get to big for your britches”. Don’t toss a loyal friend away or under the bus for a new bright and shiny one. You may find that the new will no longer be with you when you are not top dog or in the limelight.
There can be a big rise and fall in power and with leaders but remember that those in leadership with strong ambitions will gain great success and increase in power their way. (FYI: Donald Trump is a Gemini and has great ambition) These people will have the confidence to make dramatic changes but any rising star can fall from Grace and with this energy the fall could be spectacular.
These effects bring higher self -awareness, changing of old beliefs, and an increase in intuition that can lead to self discovery and revelations. It will motivate and energize you to complete your goals and set new ambitions for personal growth.
This energy helps you change destructive behaviors and addictions by bringing a strong desire to break old habits and find new interests.
It will be hard to keep anything in the dark. It is time to be brave enough to be totally and brutally honest with one’s self and you may be forced to come clean about any secrets.
Many will be wearing their hearts on their sleeves during this time. Be aware and kind.
Remember the full moon on August 7th brings endings. This allows new seeds to form and to be planted by the New Moon intentions on August 21st. A normal new moon cycle lasts up to four weeks. The eclipses work the same BUT they are more influential and over a longer period. The Solar Eclipse effect lasts for years while the lunar eclipse lasts up to six months.
Choose wisely during Venus Retrograde, with the illusions of Grandeur it brings with it.
Venus retrograde brings challenges in certain areas while it is retrograde that you may not know about. Venus only goes retrograde every 18 months (for 40-43 days), as it will from March 4th, 2017 through April 15, 2017
Venus goes retrograde: 4th March (13 degrees of Aries)
Venus goes direct: Sunday 15th April (26 degrees of Pisces)
Venus is out of the ‘retrograde shadow zone’ by 20th May 2017 – phew!
Venus retrograde affects ALL of the horoscope signs but it rules things that fall under both Taurus and Libra, making these signs more sensitive during this time. Sorry my sweet Taurus and Libra friends, remember were all in this together!
Venus rules beauty, art, social relationships, partnerships, romance, love, values, money, and financial security. Whenever a planet is retrograde, it’s NOT a favorable time for initiating anything in the area that a planet rules because our perception is off big time.
In the case of Venus retrograde, you should slow down and reassess what and whom you value.
If you have plans to beautify yourself, make a change in your love life, or implement a financial investment: STOP and re-consider those thoughts! Here is what you should think about before you decide to take any action in these areas.
Time to put the beauty needs on hold! Venus rules beauty and esthetics, and during the retrograde there is a lack of clarity in making wise decisions for your self. Our emotional state-of-mind causes us to be less objective, and we then make poor decisions about how to enhance our attractiveness. The retrograde period is not an ideal time to change one’s appearance. Don’t begin any procedures or surgeries to enhance your beauty such as plastic surgery on the face, lip implants, breast augmentation or reduction and liposuction. This also includes face fillers my Botox friends. It can bring botched procedures with many regrets.
It is also the wrong time to change your hairstyle, hair color, (your hair stylist can wait) and not a time for a makeover or to purchase a new wardrobe. Wait until Venus goes direct to make any of these decisions. You’ll have thoughtfully reflected, researched, and arrived with clarity of the best steps for you to feel and become more physically attractive. Ride the wave and don’t make poor choices.
Avoid getting married or making wedding plans. You may be clear-minded about your relationship, but this is not the case during Venus retrograde because, again, one’s perception is altered. You’re not able to see the obvious causing you to miss seeing any red flags. Before you make wedding plans or run away to Las Vegas to get married, wait until Venus turns direct to get a more balanced perspective on whether your relationship really satisfies your needs and what you want in a long-term marriage.
Don’t start a new relationship, or break-up from your long time one. Venus rules love, relationships and partnerships of all kinds. The retrograde is not a time for “moving forward,” new beginnings or changing the status of one. Remember your clarity is off during this time.
Your heart is plugged into love, romance and sensuality. This is a time many explore whether or not the grass is really greener on the other side. One note to add - Venus does tend to bring infidelity into relationships more than any other time -Just sayin. You may be so attracted to someone that you cannot see the truth with the rose colored glasses on. If you’ve just met someone, just be in the now of the moment without the need to tell or announce a new relationship, for it may be short lived. When the glasses come off after Venus goes direct it removes the illusions and reality sets in.
If you’ve been dating someone for a while, take a breath before you make a big romantic commitment. If you’ve been in a serious relationship for some time and thinking of getting married, hold off a little longer to propose. If you’re unsure about a new or old relationship, avoid making any emotional based or hasty decisions to commit to it or end it during this period. Normally current relationships aren’t affected by the retrograde (as long as you don’t decide to get engaged or married). When Venus goes direct, you’ll retain the love and romance that was there, but you’ll have a greater sense of clarity as to whether it’s truly a fulfilling relationship. In summary your love life can go through a difficult time.
Evaluate your relationship now.Love is wonderful until things get complicated. One of the problems you face during Venus retrograde is not being in touch with exactly what and whom you value. The person you’re dating now may appear more fabulous than they turn out to be. Starting a relationship during Venus retrograde can cause you to look back and have one of those, “What was I thinking?” moments. It’s easy to have a change of heart no matter how smitten you were with this person during the retrograde period.
Use this time to get in touch with your own feelings about a relationship and whether it really satisfies your needs. If you’ve been in a long-term relationship, you’ll find yourself becoming more aware of relationship problems. If you’re in the early stages of a relationship, it’s important to realize that whatever dissatisfaction you’re experiencing will only get worse with time. Be aware of the differences between you and the other person so that you can determine if you can live with them. Ask yourself if your compromise is worth making the relationship work. Relationships that have been especially challenging or problematic may come to an end during the retrograde.
Remember, your perceptions are off during this time. You can take a break from a relationship to see if this is what you desire or not. Wait until Venus goes direct, when you’re less likely to make a decision from an emotional perspective.
You may even notice a friendship in a new light. Perhaps someone who knows you well might want explore it on more on a romantic level. Let it unfold naturally and wait until Venus goes direct for it may either be short lived under the illusion influence or turn out to be the love of your life.
Expect old relationships to return. Past love relationships and old friends often re-enter your life during the Venus retrograde to help you clear away the past to make room for the new. Oh yippee!
The return of a former love may complicate a current relationship, or you may find yourself having romantic nostalgia and allow sexual longing creep into your consciousness bringing an old relationship back into your world. Remember your thoughts today create your tomorrow.
Unfortunately, it may not be better the second time around. So, if an old flame comes back into your life don’t be hasty. Be warned that it may not work out in the long run. However, it could be a good time to deal with any closure or you may be witness them coming clean about their infidelity. You could always enjoy them one last time or have a chance to finally complete your relationship and let go of it.
When old flame’s come back into your life, it’s a good sign its from a past life experience and time to sort out any karma issues with it. Decisions may need to be made on whether to go back and make things better or snuff it out once and for all. It is time to make peace with your past and let that ship sail.
Not a time for investments. The natural ruler of the 2nd House is Venus. Venus has dominion over your financial activities. So, when Venus is retrograde, be very cautious about making investments and spending money. Again, your perception is off, causing to make poor financial decisions from an emotional place rather than an objective one.
Often investments are inflated or over-valued at this time and will eventually lose their value when Venus goes direct. To make matters worse, Venus retrograde often produces an unpredictable environment when financial markets unexpectedly change directions which can cause major effects
Be careful of buying things - especially luxury items. It’s not a good time to purchase luxury items because you’re so enamored of beauty that you become extravagant and forget your budget. Avoid buying any big-ticket items such as a house, car or boat because you’re likely to overspend and find that your purchase backfires on you in some way. Either they become money pits or such headaches that you’ll regret your purchase.
This also goes for any clothes, and high-end accessories you maybe tempted to buy. What looks gorgeous during Venus retrograde can turn into the most unflattering outfit you ever bought. If you choose to splurge during this time, you could find yourself opening your closet while asking yourself “What was I thinking when I bought that?”
How to make the most out of this time… Have a garage sale! Unload all the items: clothes, gadgets, artifacts, and art you’ve purchased during previous Venus retrogrades—that normally no one on the planet would want to buy except when Venus is retrograde. Make some money off any of those poor choices.
This is a time for self love and for thinking of what brings YOU the most pleasure in life. If old flames come back, look in the mirror of these past relationships, see where you can improve and bring healing into your life. Clear that crap out!
Wait a few days until Venus retrograde is over on April 15th to bring back clear thinking and insure that the decisions on important matters of your beauty, love life and finances will bring you the best results for days ahead!
What is the most crucial to remember is NOT to make any big decisions regarding love, money and partnerships till after April 15th, 2017. The full story of what Venus needs to reveal won’t be totally uncovered till then which is the point of her direct motion.
It's tough love and intervention time! It can be uncomfortable but it challenges us to make changes, and corrections needed in our life, so we can move forward on the path we desire.
Mercury Retrograde December 19 to January 8, has a shadow effect period of a week before and after, and it's a time to just go with what ever comes your way. It's action helps re-calibrates us and get life back on track.
The tough love part, is Mercury points out the weak spots allowing us the awareness to fix them. It is known for bring the "RE" time. These "RE's" or sometimes can be the Mean Reds, aren't all pleasant but they show up for our highest good. Just keep reminding yourself that!
Mercury defines the ability to think, gather information and communicate. It effects our mental concentration, focus, and perception. Communication in speaking, and writing, contracts and agreements, siblings and co-workers. It's time of applying patience and grace with your expectations and be aware of how you speak to others, for it might backfire.
It is not a time for any new contracts or agreements for they most likely wont be kept. If you have one that has been in the works prior, the energy will bring to light what needs to be fixed before signed.
Mercury's job is to bring truth, awareness, understanding to the surface. Which means change. It brings what needs to be cleaned up and secrets revealed. It helps us look at what potentially was left out or needs to be fixed letting us move forward on our path in the right way.
The sign that Mercury goes retrograde is the area that we are going to be doing the work. Capricorn is the place Mercury is Retrograde, which rules government and big business. This brings anything hidden forward, and somethings could potentially cause chaos. It brings change in peoples lives, resignations, demotions, promotions, cancelations and rescheduling. People often change their minds at this time.
its a great time to re-evaluate your personal and business goals for the coming year, and see if there might be any holes in your plan. Its time to make things sound entering into 2017.
Awareness to those in the leadership role, things unknown may cone forth, in which you may have to take a strong actions to correct, but it will have to be done. This sign will highlights government, and secrecy....that's all I need to say on that.
What you should know...
Let me first say, it is not a good time to buy any electronics for Christmas. It's also not favorable for repairs on anything with moving parts, machinery or automobiles, for you will end up repairing the repairs.
Mercury Retrograde effects travel, and all areas of communication regarding travel. You can expect delays if you do not stay on top of all arrangements for it could bring unnecessary stress. For those who travel for business, travel agency or personal assistants, it is time to pay close attention and stay on top of things. Make sure all forms of communication is clear, which can be challenging when this planet also brings foggy thinking. It could effect weather with outages, heavy snow, more brushfires, street lights and more, if you are a traveler keep an eye on the weather for the forecasts can change quickly. There are no magic words I can offer, just tell you to have a strategy. You can thank me later!
The good part, this process is for our higher purpose and makes us stop, look and listen. It's a time that brings balance into our lives. Its a time of releasing the old, and brings an awareness to what we thought we didn't want, could just be the answer to what we need, making it what we want. Be open and of integrity for the messenger of Mercury is claiming our authority and being true to oneself.
I am a intuitive channel sharing information on the planets and how they effect us. I hope this information assists you. ~ Karol Lee
This November Full Moon is known as Supermoon, for it is the closest full moon to earth and the largest full moon "Supermoon" since 1948. We will not see another for 18 years in November 2034. Supermoons are “supercharged” bringing a stronger power with pull on our bodies and emotions. This Supermoon will bring closure to some things that may have taken place on last months October's New Moon.
Full Moons bring closures and final endings, as New Moons bring new beginnings. Its all about endings and beginnings to help us move us forward on our journey to happiness. As an intuitive channel receiving information, I admit I enjoyed this sexy Full Moon story in which I get to share with you, but keep in mind, things maybe not be as black and white like the picture.
This November's Full Moon -Supermoon in astrological sign of Taurus, comes with opposition of the Sun already in astrological sign of Scorpio, I see strong, steady, alluring, seductive dance of the Tango, with two fixed signs wanting control.
Taurus brings determination of security and structure, with a twist of resistance. While Scorpio (my sign) tugs on the secretive dark side, intuition, passion and desire. Both these astrological signs are fixed in their ways, and may have challenging time until they find compromise of working together. It brings a pull on our emotions until we learn not to fight it. Encouraging to open our eyes and see whats before us, or what comes up. To be open and receiving, and allow this shift to bring the big healing's that opens the gate to a new life. This Taurus Supermoon can bring fast decisions with sudden unexpected happenings, along with hidden thing being revealed. Self worth creeps forward for us to take a deeper look and heal those feelings of insecurity, and a releasing pain of the past. Finances will be a focus, encouraging you to be practical and conservative, and focus on ways for more abundance in your life. Again.. this is all about healing Supermoon in Taurus comes wanting to play things safe, snuggle in and not look at any repressed thoughts, bringing the attitude of not wanting to face or think about things, only wanting to nest, and relax. Sun in Scorpio, opposing it, wants to be daring, bringing an intensity of digging in the dark side, of any suppressed fear, and hidden shadows, explore new desires and passion. Instead of playing tug of war, stay grounded and not let entitlement or self-importance get ahold of you. Tweak your goals and how to achieve them, break free of any relationships that might be holding you back. Enjoy sensual pleasures that come your way! Taurus and Scorpio share a very sexy dance, both wanting to lead, but learning if they work together they are far more powerful and bring healings, releasing of what not longer serves, making the right choices that empower with desire, passion, love and happiness.These two signs working together make a beautiful story.
Full Moon Eclipse~Seeing the truth.September 16-17 Lunar Eclipse falls into the sign of Pisces. Great time to focus on Creativity and your inner spiritual self.
This moon eclipse heightens the intuitive or psychic awareness in both the conscious and unconscious levels. We are faced with a bookend effect from the September 1st New moon solar eclipse to September 16th holding Mercury Retrograde between, offering a "re" review for our path to bring healing. All this movement is part of a larger cycle that started back in 2008 (what was happening in your life then) this cycle does not end until February 2017 but this September eclipse has the the strongest effect.
It is about truth. What you have been shying away from, or unconsciously aware of will be revealed. It is to set you free!
Truth is necessary for expansion but at time can be painful; it brings an awakening of life that is revitalizing. It can be moments of reflection, fears, but this is to be released when faced so you can move in the direction you need.
If things are brought to your attention, don’t ignore them but know that you are strong and empowered enough to see the truth. This energy may also release any lingering or simmering frustrations beneath the surface. Full moons always bring high energy and eclipses magnify them. Being aware of your words, choices and actions during this effect the next few days will help you navigate with ease. This energy takes a few weeks to simmer down, allowing you to feel the lingering effects
Relationships are highlighted during this time; if there is something you have not been seeing or have been turning a blind eye too this eclipse will force you to deal with it once and for all.
If people exit your life around an Eclipse, it’s often an indicator of a karmic bond, or a soul contract that has served its time. But things will not officially be wrapped up until February 2017, but what closure that you need for now, will be delivered. Understand that feelings of completion will help you find peace.
Smoother sailing ahead, in fact the Universe offers a beautiful and gentle energy that will bring relief. Like a smooth path on a fresh sunrise day. (Makes me do the Jesus happy dance!)
These bookend eclipses and Mercury Retrograde are all about re-setting the dial to help you shed and pull back the layers that are no longer needed. To find the truth of your soul and heart, so you can make the best decisions moving forward.
Eclipses can leave you feeling raw and exposed, but trust this is growth and renewal! Be at peace with whatever comes and trust in your intuition and instincts that this brings the best for your spiritual awareness. It's all Good!
The truth will set you free!
Note: Eclipses are to move things out of your life making room for the new. Bringing a deeper understanding for life and what is really valued. Eclipse movement for your highest good, they are designed to transform us, and our soul.
The effects of eclipses bring beginnings and endings, moves, life or death, marriages, breakups, new relationships. This eclipse has a long lasting effect possibly up to 6 months. You will for sure feel the shift with in 30 days.
This month's eclipses are about healing - heart healing. Moving to the next level. Happy Graduation!
What you need to know about 5 planets in Retrograde.
There I said it! To best assist you, here is my intuitive information to help you navigate the energy. Five planets are retrograde - Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto – for the first time in ten years. Five retrograde planets is a rare event which brings a lot of information along with it. It may feel like life has slowed down and you are living in a different dimension with uncertainty (or maybe that’s just me). This energy brings time of “RE” re-build, re-do, re-think, re-create – it is time to RE-VIEW your life in all areas such as work, relationships, your inner self, and finances. Not to bring a negative, but with this energy we may witness actions of accidents and violence in your surroundings and throughout the world. With this information you can make sure your personal world is aligned. If I ever had to express “caution” with all you do, I express it now until after May 22 when two planets will go direct, and then offer an ease. I have broken down each planet and what areas they effect.
MERCURY APRIL 28-MAY 22 It may feel like it is more but each year Mercury only goes retrograde three times and lasts for approx. three weeks. This is the second cycle. This is time to look at your life and what direction you want to take it. This cycle is time to heal old wounds and to heal our life of what still lingers. Old friends may reenter you life to settle any karma and allow you each to move on. Time to rest, recoup, and be under the radar to process what is at hand in your life. During this time do not start anything new, ponder on it, and gather information
* Mercury defines your thinking process and metal facilities, intellect and intelligence, communication, ability to gather focus and perception, speaking and writing, contracts and agreements, siblings, travel, your work and working environment.
MARS – APRIL 18-JUNE 29 Time to slow down. You may feel like you’re in quick sand but its for the best. If you press in and rush you can disrupt your life with a simple accident that makes you slow down. Look at what is making you distracted and re-align your priorities. This time is to align with those around you so your connections can deepen.
*Mars defines your physical energy and actions, sense of adventure, aggressive and assertive behavior, confidence, passion and zeal, anger, violence, impatience and hastiness. It shows your desire nature, sexual urges, and physical energy.
JUPITER – JANUARY 7 – MAY 9 Expansion and growth slows when Jupiter goes retrograde. External energies make you look at your “self” to see where you are putting your energies. When Jupiter goes retrograde certain things that you may have been clinging onto will be removed and you need to continue your journey without them. This can be jobs, people, animals etc. All is for your higher good.
*Jupiter defines your understanding of broader concepts, growth, advancement, prosperity, joy, faith, and generosity. It shows increase and expansion on a personal or material level, and your capacity to see the big picture.
SATURN –MARCH 25 – AUGUEST 13 Saturn retrograde brings unwanted delays, and hindrances. All you do takes more effort and hard work on your part. Life feels as if it is simply delayed. Re-evaluate your plans and build up physical and mental strength for it. Saturn retrograde helps you come up with new plans that would be productive once it goes direct.
*Saturn defines your ambition and goals, career, fears and concerns, obstacles to over come, and limitations. It shows responsibilities, obligations and recognition earned.
PLUTO – APRIL 18 – SEPTEMBER 26 When Pluto goes retrograde your search takes you deep into your inner self, for truth and peace. Your compassionate nature emerges and you seek knowledge, in the Tarot cards. This would be the Hierophant searching for what cleanses your soul. You may feel empty with in but stay true to your self.
*Pluto defines regenerative process, shedding and renewal, death and rebirth of anything, sexual tendencies, aggressiveness, extreme behavior, power and control issues and explosive and unstable actions. It is your sense of power and influence. It shows resilience, renewal, and resurrection.
Note: remember to ponder on all your words and actions before executing them for best results.
Ch-Ch-Ch- Ch- ChangesDay 11 of the 2016 year and so much has been happening. It is like we are in a vortex swirl of fast expansion and change that can be challenging for our human emotions to keep up with. Yes, it has been a lot across the globe and in our own worlds, breaking the mold of who we are. The Universe has been filled with planets shifting this early part of January. You may have felt the energy of something feeling a bit off or uncomfortable in your world. Rest assured, it is Divine making sure everything is in place for what is to come in this year of 2016. Just know, there is more to come. Divine is taking us deep within to review and look at our actions, material needs, beliefs, desires and to examine things that may affect our spiritual path. We may feel encouraged to release relationships that hold us back and to pour into those that bring support, love, and healthy challenge to build a secure foundation. Refinement is to let go of what God is pruning. Change habits and start new ones that offer a healthier mind, body and soul. Write your one year plan of desires, do a vision board, get silent (my favorite) seek with-in for clarity and release the greatness that has been waiting to come forth. We just had the first new moon of the year January 10th offering us great time to ponder what we desire both long term and until the next new moon. I have a new moon ritual of ruin stone readings that I have done for the last 4 years while keeping a log allowing myself to witness my personal transformation, and to serve as a reminder of my desires, keeping me on task for the year. You may have one of your own but if not, it’s a good year to start one allowing you to be reminded of your path of transformation. Many have experienced loved ones transitioning to the brighter side, and this portal will continue until early February. As we experience or hear of this we are also hearing of the miracle of births. Yes, our future world changers are arriving. Just watch the internet of amazing 2-10 year olds who’s talents outshine those on the planet now. They carry knowledge of universal wonders and soul evolution with consciousness to past experiences that is starting the transformation of what we currently know in our world. Ch-ch-ch-changes…yes they are fully in place and happening. David Bowie said it best with the song “Changes” that time may change me, but I can’t trace time. Below is my in depth information on the planets shifts with dates to know and how they will effect us this month (hold on tight). Understand I am not an astrologer, I just channel information given for the planet aspects we are experiencing.
Jupiter retrograde; January 7 through May 9th. Jupiter is our eyeglass to understanding with broader concepts, values and ethics of expansion and growth that inspires prosperity and abundance. It represents increase of expansion in the material level, and defines you to see the big picture. Being in retrograde slows down any projects or plans, it lets you review your ethics, what is important to you materially and what you want, and that which reflects the true you inside. Jupiter will remind you if you have too much on your plate and assist you to release what is not serving you to bring back balance. Don’t be surprised if choose to take life altering steps during this time. Mercury retrograde; January 5-25 It begins early in Aquarius and then backs into Capricorn. Mercury retrograde gets us thinking about our personal worlds, where things are going, looking at your current relationships (friends, family, intimate, business) and choosing those you want to release and those that you want to strengthen. This is not a time for new ventures or large purchases unless they have been in progress for last 30 days. Avoid electronics and anything with moving parts, for you will not be satisfied and / or have many problems with the purchase which will cause you stress. Keep in mind Mercury Retrograde is about looking back. It is a good time to step into a closer relationship with those who have supported you, and who really matter. It is time to correct any area to bring you peace in your life, to let go of od habits, beliefs and relationships that have held you back. This process builds a solid foundation of your 2016-year ahead. Since moving through Aquarius and Capricorn, this just tells you that those signs will go into a deeper review of their world and allow adjustments for their future. New Moon in Capricorn – January 10 This new moon tells us it is time to develop our dreams and aspirations in a realistic way, while our ambition is awakening allowing us to set attainable goals using common sense and our maturity from our personal experiences. It is time to work on self-discipline and to see our responsibilities. Time to write out your monthly plan on what you truly want but keep in mind the other aspects that movement may be slow and review is the first part of the 2016 year that continually plays over and over in our minds. Mars in Scorpio until March 5 – Mars in Scorpio is at home for it is the original ruler. Scorpio is a deep, dark sign that would destroy something just to recreate it in a new way. being average is unsatisfying and you may be drawn to crises to transform and it does emotionally excite you. Scorpio is about physical energy and actions, a sense of adventure, assertive behavior, courage, strength and confidence, struggle, strife and anger – so… any planets in Scorpio will exhibit tenacity and intensity with a hidden agenda. Mars in Scorpio is going to rock your world to make changes needed by taking you on a rollercoaster ride that is intense, scary and yet exhilarating, giving you the strength to pursue your own desires for your personal transformation. Full moon January 23 in Leo. This full moon is known at the wolf moon, appearing when the wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. The name itself offers warning, for awareness and caution, for the wild gather and are hungry. Mercury turns direct on January 25. If during the few days before and few days after you feel like the gate was opened (Wolf Moon) letting you express yourself in the romantic, and creative world, just know that your inner wild child will want to take control because girl wants to get her party on in these areas. She is the one that leaves destruction behind by filling her hunger of restless desires.…caution! Be aware of how you communicate with others, for your brutal honesty may be too big of a pill for those around you to swallow and cause discord.
What an extraordinary card to have before our Christmas holiday.
Faith continually challenges our beliefs and strength. It is the rock in which we stand, that moves us forward on our journey.
Are you being tested in this area or with your New Moon leap, and if so, this card is telling us that we need to believe, to stand on the faith of what actions we are taking are the right actions even if doesn't feel that way. Divine and faith go hand in hand. You don't see either, but you have to trust that it is there. The trust is what makes your desires happen.
Having a week of silence at the Abbey of Gethsemani with the Monks who walk on faith, helped me get my footing on my rock. I find Gods sense of humor interesting in revealing this card. Taking advantage of the last new moon of the year, by looking in the mirror of my truth, it was just what I needed to remind me of my unwavering faith, to believe, trust, and allow that divine is at work in my life, that the changes I am making are moving me forward that my spiritual expansion is happening. What is your rock of faith and what are you doing to stand strong?
Faith is believing in the unknown. It is believing that your requests, and prayers are not just heard but being answered. That your inner master, Christ, Mother Mary, God, Universe, Mother Gaia, Buddha, or who ever you turn too, is working behind the scenes and can see your future, your needs, your joys and delivers them. Faith heals, Faith opens our hearts, Faith makes our inner light shine so bright that nothing can extinguish it.
In the season of love, faith is what shines the light. Today I have faith that all is divine!
This card aligns perfectly with the New Moon aspect of today. Divine is simply....Divine!
Inner Child speaks, bringing awareness, letting us know it is time to heal, to move forward on our path. Life is not about staying in one place, becoming complacent, it is about the experience of the journey, to explore, grow, press in and step out of our comfort zones. The child who always resides in each adult, is expressing, it is time to nurture this fragment inside that expresses pain, hurt, fear, sadness, anxiety, anger, and to comfort this child that is acting out, that feels neglected and to offer love and comfort, calming it, let it be the child that can simply play and have fun, that it doesn't have to protect you anymore that is is time for you to protect it and in a new way, telling this inner child not to worry, that you are embarking on a new path and to love you by sitting on the sidelines and cheer you on.
It is time to look on the mirror and see the truth of who we are, to address that saboteur, trigger and share that it is time for a new way, a new journey, a new expression of who you are.
This divine card goes hand in hand with the December New Moon, and with the Universe calling us to move forward!
New moons are about planting seeds, gaining clarity and moving forward with action. It is time to step out of our comfort zone and pave the way for a fresh start. This new moon in December has a feminine effect and lets us process and think on how best to make changes that will assist us in shifting our thoughts and doing things differently to get results. This new moon gives usthe courage that is required to make the leap of faith with massive change from years of climbing the proverbial mountain. This is the time to reflect before taking action , to see what we have been choosing, what has held our attention and kept us stuck in our patternscausing us to repeat the same cycle over and over. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs are being highlighted. Look in the mirror of truth This new moon is challenging us to think differently and to unlock those thoughts or beliefs that at one time served us but are now holding us captive from moving forward. It is time to stop these repetitive cycles and replace them with something new. Sagittarius allows us to take chances, to take the leap of faith. This energy helps us open up to discover something new about ourselves. It allows us to see we that we are strong and powerful beings inside a body that makes us believe we are limited and it is time to look past outward appearances and what society dictates and just go for it. As I type this, I am being shown an automobile representing our bodies in this earthly experience. It is time to get new tires, a shiny coat of paint,and new engine that lets us really get going. I love how God talks to me in pictures! It is time to go within and explore, to believe in the unknown, to dig deep and unlock the secrets that are hidden within us, and to believe that we can create our reality and attain what ever desire we hold. We just need to adjust our mind thoughts to release what limits us. This new moon will reveal the things that no longer serve us. Our highest need will be revealed and allow us to start something new and do things differently. They have been knocking at the door since the November full moon to get our attention – you know those nagging thoughts of what you should be doing and yet, find yourself not doing. To be honest I am ready for this new moon and ready to make some changes in my everyday life and allow my greatness to roar! If you are open and allow it, the New Moon will help you do just that, to help you think about things differently approach life differently, and changeyour ways.

Think out of the box and see yourself living with these changes. New Moon in Sagittarius effects can bring restlessness AND help us maintain a positive outlook on life.
