Hello to everyone and no, I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet! I have moved into a bit of a retreat mode while I am working on my next book and much of my energy has been focused on that endeavor.
As you may have noticed, I prefer to generate Astro-alerts only when there is something fairly big going on. We are entering a period that merits a close look, so I thought I’d send out a short overview of the current landscape in advance of the New Moon in Aquarius on February 9th.
Take a look at where you were at in mid-June of this past year. That is when Jupiter, the frequency of expansion consciousness, moved into Gemini. This began a deep and profound process of reevaluating how we experience abundance in our lives. Please remember that abundance is about Love in all its forms and not just money. Jupiter in Gemini is the driving force that has been helping us heal duality and separation, ending forever the notion that there is anything outside of yourself that will fix you. If there is something you desire, you must first create it within your Self. If you can truly hold it in your own consciousness, then it is yours for the having in the world of form.
During the overwhelming eclipse season this past November and December; a lot was going on in the depths of our psyche, both personal and collective. Just before that process began, Jupiter went retrograde; essentially causing us to go inward, integrating the new belief system we have been so diligently focused on developing. Yesterday, Jupiter went direct, delivering us to the next chapter of our journey. This will be heralded by a profound outward shift into the world with our newly minted consciousness intact, whether we are ready or not. It’s a little like being thrown out of the nest and not knowing if you are quite ready to fly.
Over the next few days, Jupiter will retrace over the point of the eclipse on November 28th of last year, effectively triggering (or really re-triggering) the issues that were brought up then. If you have been doing your inner work with diligence, you will indeed be flying where perhaps earlier in your development you were trudging. There are absolutely no planets in a retrograde position for the next three weeks. That makes this an incredible opportunity for making plans for the future. Take advantage of this and put your vision into high gear. The New Moon on the 9th will be a big part of this process and I will make sure to give you some guidance about how to best take advantage of that energy when we get closer to it.
In the meantime: Make the plan, pick up the phone, write the proposal, have the conversation, mend the relationship even if it means leaving it, quit the job, start the job, submit the application. Whatever is next for you, and only you can know what that is, now is the time to step into risk and take action. A rare moment of no backward pulling retrogrades is one of the best periods to move outward into the world with nothing to hold you back. Mama has thrown you out of the nest and she would never do that unless you were truly ready to soar. Check out your new wings, you may be delighted at how high you can fly.
