New Moon in Capricorn - We Shall Overcome.

Planets in Capricorn don't start things at the bottom, they start them in the basement. This week we have FIVE of the ten planets we look at all lined up in this sign of harsh reality. It signifies a time when we don't seem to have a whole lot of options and indeed many of you have been calling me asking "When will I catch a break?" The good news is we're all in this stuck-hole together so we might as well just lay back and enjoy the ride.

If you're finding yourself surrounded by obstacles that you cannot overcome, the first thing you must do is steady yourself before taking action. The Moon, the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Pluto are all in Capricorn meaning now is the time to stabilize and allow for a new perspective to come into focus. Particularly remember Capricorn is the opposite sign from moody Cancer so you're more powerful when you stay rational this week and don't let emotions take over. Much of the turmoil in the news these days has been caused by reporters "catastrophising" every story. "If it bleeds it leads" is the bottom line it seems, and I for one am done with having my feelings manipulated. Mercury in Capricorn helps you be rational, so instead of reacting with disgust or outrage the next time you read Trump's latest tweet or even when you are considering difficulties in your own life, take a step back and consider your alternatives. I just saw an article about how our bodies are wired to reward us with a zap of dopamine - the chemical that makes us feel good - every time we do certain things. We get huge jolts of it from clicking away on our computers - and even more when we shop online. So the big corporations know that if they can just keep feeding us these hair raising stories while also promising solutions if we'll only purchase the right pills or donate to the right politician, we'll keep coming back and something! It's the old "create a need and fill it" scam. But now the game has gone on for so long and obviously the horror stories are never going to stop, that we're reaching a point of being totally burned out and feeling it's all hopeless. Fortunately a long with showing us how bad it's gotten, these planets in Capricorn are also showing us the way out.

Capricorn is the sign of responsibility as in "the ability to respond." As we recognize that our power comes from our ability to choose what we respond to and how, we are able to regain control of our lives. (Interesting that Capricorn rules the knees and people who do not control their responses are said to have "knee-jerk" reactions.) Enlist sensible Mercury to describe your circumstances in the most straight forward and honest terms. Avoid the temptation to use words that create worry and fear, instead keep a positive outlook by frequently telling yourself "I can do this!" Venus in Capricorn rewards us when we set realistic (a favorite Capricorn word) short term goals for ourselves.

The New Moon falls on Tuesday January 16. Make this the month you will be the one who decides how to shape your life. We can either retreat into denial and boredom, or courageously go forward. The second half of this week looks like we'll have some opportunities for breakthroughs when the Sun will go into Aquarius on Friday, January 19, so...

Let the Sun shine in!

Jupiter Aligns with Mars - Dawning of the Aquarian Age?

When the Moon is in the seventh house,
And Jupiter aligns with Mars,
Then peace will guide the planets,
And love will steer the stars.
- Aquarius

The Moon is in the 7th house or sign, Libra, this week as Mars and Jupiter join up in Scorpio. Is this the long awaited dawning of the New Age as predicted in the song  Aquarius? If so, what do the planets tell us about this next cycle and how can we best harmonize with its powerful flow?

We have a rare Sun-Venus-Pluto conjunction happening in Capricorn this week. This means the planets of Life. Love and the Power to Transform are uniting in the sign of our Collective Reality. It portends many astonishing realizations hitting home. In fact, it just about guarantees that everything we've believed about who we are, our value, our limits and all that other Capricorn stuff is getting a mind blowing update. Those stuck in old rigid thinking may be filled with fear as promises get broken, appointments are missed and everything seems open to interpretation. On the other hand, those who can keep the faith, those who can keep sending out the reassuring love vibes with patience and expectation will experience awesome soul growth as we recognize the upcoming changes are necessary and can all be for the good.  A lot of hidden truths will be coming to the surface - like the song says, "no more falsehoods" - and the more we can allow this purification process to clear the old, the more easily the new possibilities will emerge. Vow to be the change you want to see in the world - you'll have proof this is how it works by the end of the month. Maybe by the end of the week when the Moon will be in Sagittarius, the sign of beliefs, trining Uranus bringer of enlightenment.

If there is one piece of advice I would like to give you it's, 'Don't let this week's amazing opportunities pass you by!" Turn off your computer (but not until after you read me, of course), stop obsessing over Trump, and get out there and make your move! The strong emphasis in Capricorn means this is the time when the rubber meets the road. Do something to make your dreams more real. One easy, cheap and powerful gesture is to order new business cards highlighting the person you are becoming. Another powerful symbol is to carry a check in your wallet made out to you and signed, The Universe. Jim Carey made out a check to himself for $10,000,000 and carried it with him for a year. He was broke at the time but before the year was up he had been given a multi-million dollar movie contract.

The Age of Aquarius is a time for new rules and independent thinking. Those who are not strong enough to accept responsibility for the lives their thinking has created, who continue to blame others or the government rather than looking within, will become powerless victims for the power now will be with those who recognize AND USE the laws of karma and The Law of Attraction and become the intentional co-creators with God we were created to be.

It starts now.

New Year's Resolutions That Will Change Your Life.

Are you still making the same old resolutions? A recent survey shows the top three resolutions made each year are to lose weight, clear out clutter and to pay off credit card debt. A close fourth is to learn a foreign language.
Question: Is anybody actually doing any of this?
No? I didn't think so.

Why not? Why is it we so often start out animated and yet so quickly lose focus, become discouraged, bored and give up?
The answer may be in the stars..

Consider, while we think of January 1st as the first day of a new year, this date is not connected with any particular planetary activity or support. In the past, ancient civilizations like Babylon used the spring equinox to celebrate the start of the new cycle. In Egypt, the new year began in mid-July with the rising of the fixed star Sirius. These dates had an astrological justification for planning new beginnings but we go by a calendar instituted by Julius Caesar that's not star based and thus the planetary line up on January 1 may or may not be conducive to keeping resolutions. Sometimes the planets are even arranged in a way that practically guarantees projects started on this day will flop.

So now let's consider what resolutions might have a chance given the placement of the stars this New Year.
First of all, we're having a Super Full Moon on January 1. Everything comes out in the open under a full Moon so this is an ideal time to recognize where we are and what we want our goals to be. Because this Moon is in Cancer, it naturally puts a focus on the issues of security with a particular emphasis on food and family. To come up with a resolution that will really work for you consider first how you can enhance these areas. As Cancer rules eating habits and it is a waning rather than a waxing Moon, this is a year when resolutions to trim down could finally get results. However, rather than resolving to go on some restrictive diet, consider that Cancer is a water sign and vow to DRINK MORE WATER. Particularly distilled water. That's right, the sort of water you usually use to put in your iron to keep it clean. Distilled water will do wonders for keeping your insides clean too. You can google it and read more about the amazing results people have experienced - including weight loss! - from drinking a gallon of distilled water everyday.

Uranus - the god representing your inner rebel - will be turning direct on Tuesday, January 2. Projects that have been stalled come back to life now but with a new twist. If you've had a hard time accepting the fact that our political leaders are not helping us, Uranus turning direct clears your head of  misplace trust and inspires you to BECOME SELF-SUFFICIENT.

Saturday January 6 could be the best day this week for making changes. The fierce god of action, Mars, will be in Scorpio, the sign of total transformation and he will be sextiling - offering his strength - to Jupiter, the god of good fortune. Affirmations and resolutions made on this day should have some staying power and net you beneficial results. Use it to not only pay off debts but to FIND NEW SOURCES OF INCOME. Plus Jupiter rules travel so don't just resolve to learn a foreign language, PLAN TO TAKE A TRIP.

Finally remember the magic of WRITING THING DOWN. Put your resolutions in writing, read them often and recognize when the Universe is aligning with you to male them manifest.

Happy New Year!
