Hello Everyone. Thanks so much for all the emails in my absence. I have moved from San Francisco to Mill Valley, 12 minutes on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. I have the water views and trees all around I'd been dreaming about. Plus Mt. Tam. It took me three months to find it, and two months to unpack, but I'm coming up for air and so glad my new life is beginning.
January 31st was a lunar eclipse in Leo. A whole new eclipse energy has come forward and for six months we'll be carried along for the ride. It's not as potent as the last one, but its still Leo and Aquarius and full of intelligence, vision, energy and purpose. By now most of you should be started a new life in some way, whether its moving, or getting a whole new career, or a wedding or divorce, whichever is needed to get you on your path again, your new path. The eclipses are about change, endings/beginnings and if you are on the path to making some changes, you're on the right path. I know its scary. And this eclipse energy is readying us for another 6 months of many changes, including losses. What you lose will be replaced. Let it go, and trust that it will be made right in a much better way once you let go.I had many doubts about my move on so many levels, and about 2 weeks of panic after I moved in! But now it really seems right, its beginning to feel like my home and I am ready for new adventures. I swear this is the year I will start doing video blogs. It has to be the year you do what you've been planning too. The energy around us is building to a peak, an explosion of change, and the energy to make it happen. If you are a Leo, Scorpio, Taurus or Aquarius, or have an influence of these signs in your chart, expect a lot of change coming up for you.
It's a number 11 year, a master number like 22 and 33. Its the number of higher learning and communication. It's my number, which helps me be a good communicator and get my point across. It's time to LISTEN to that inner voice and go with the flow of it. I did have a great experience of not having room mates for 6 months. This let me be with myself, my thoughts, my energy. It was healing and it opened a path to where I can now "hear" the sound of a gentle wind or flow of water-like sound, but very quiet, that is in the background. It's a river that is taking you somewhere. It's your path, your guidance, and its all around you if only you will listen to it and for it. I am CERTAIN now that I am never alone, that guides and guidance are always here, protecting me. The Universe is everywhere. There is no escaping it so there is no reason not to listen. It is reassuring, comforting and help build your beliefs because you "know" there is something out there, living quietly in everything.
The first half of 2018 is going to be full of surprises. Major planets are moving to new signs, meaning energy shifts dramatically. And as those planets shift, they move into new houses in your horoscope. What part of your life will undergo the most change?
Saturn moved away from Sagittarius into its home sign of Capricorn on December 19th, 2017. For the next 2.5 years you will experience Saturn'svery potent, serious energy surrounds us. He is referred to as the TaskMaster because he forces us to change when we really don't feel like it, so we resent his presence because its always a very hard time when Saturn aspects one of our planets or moves into a certain house. He makes us feel sad because he makes us look at our situation and really take notice and fix things. He rules matter. Physical Matter. Your body. Your house. Your Roads. Your buildings and BUSINESS. Without him, this place would be air, no substance, no structure, so you can see he's pretty important. Capricorn is his home. Any planet that returns home is like a super planet. He is emboldened, he is at his peak, he is recharged by being home, and Saturn hasn't been home for 28 years - 1990. What was going on then, in your life. Expect similar experiences again, and the need to look at issues that have remained unresolved. For younger folks experiencing Saturn in Capricorn for the first time will be quite an event. The days of "getting away" with stuff is gone. We will all pay the piper if we don't toe the line and live with integrity and honestly. In the news in 1990 says Nelson Mandela was released. Margret Thatcher resigned. East and West Germany reunited after Russia collapsed. And the birth of the Internet.
Whatever happens now, you can bet Saturn has a lot in store for us, and you can bet its going to be transforming. And one of the things that also happened last time Saturn came home was a major recession. Saturn rules MONEY, banks, large institutions like governments and universities. He is honest and proud and he has come home to find banks and governments run amuck and he's gonna tear it down to rebuild. Expect severe volatility in the stock market and banking in general. Reforms are coming and collapses. Governments around the world are going to be tested for their integrity and those found lacking will find major upheavals, coups and revolution. Aided by Pluto, the phoenix rising from the ashes and Pluto's return to its placement in 1776 in 2020, we are in a revolution like nobody's business. Pluto has been egged on by Uranus for 7 years to shake things up, stop protecting the powerful who are corrupt. He is on the bring of burning things down to rebuild. With Saturn's help the revolution of PERMANENT change is upon us. Stock up on food, water and supplies. There could be a time of shortages like we haven't seen for 70+ years. Learn to appreciate the little things, be thankful for a can of soup or a banquet equally. A roof over your head and a refrigerator full of food is a GIFT.
I must also caution you to watch and manage your money and assets very wisely. There are going to be big financial collapses in the coming 2.5 years, and being as cautious and safe as you can is a good piece of advice. Saturn IS stability, but coming home to find so much corruption has put him in volcano mode, and he will shake things up and sort things out leaving a lot in its wake. Be more cautious with spending. Don't get deeper in debt, and if you are, try to make a plan to get out of it, so you are not shackled by debts/stress. Saturn is restriction. When it comes to money and institutions, you can expect earthquakes in these areas and when he is done shaking things up, institutions and banks will become total, boring straight arrows again, places where you can trust and depend on, as you can trust and depend on Saturn to make things right and stable.
So that information should keep you occupied for a while. I should be completely done putting my place together by months end, and I can get back to my regular blogs and help keep you posted. We need to talk about Uranus going direct in early January and back in full revolution mode. Mercury goes retrograde March 22 in Aries. Saturn goes retrograde April 17. Pluto goes retrgrade 4/22, Earth day/ Uranus moves into Taurus May 15t, a big energy shift. (I'll have a lot to say about Uranus - revolution meets stability, wow what a concept!)
It's good to be back, but my journey was worth all the blood, sweat and tears. Change is good, even when it scares the hell out you. Many blessings. And MEDITATE!
