Check In On Your Treasure Map & Operation Declutter



On the launch of Capricorn New Moon we also activate the last quarter of the Treasure Maps we built last April.  

We now beginning the final three months for manifestations.  Many of you have had a lot of accomplishments and during these final months you can expect more.  Some of you are concerned that you have not had as much success as you hoped.  Do not lose heart.  A lot can happen this final phase. One year I had the bulk of my map realized in the last five weeks of the Treasure Map year.  The Universe is funny that way.    

Also--please take the time now to begin the declutter process.  Now is the time to start clearing out the things that you don't use, things that are broken, things you don't love---get it out of your house, your car, your office and your brain.   What are the thoughts you have in your brain that need to be removed?  Thoughts like, "I can't, I never, I don't.."  Some of those thoughts no longer serve you.  Also, declutter you inbox.  Do you really need all those emails that are being sent to you?   Unhook.   

We have three months to declutter so don't kill yourself, just do it bit by bit and you will be there by the time of the next Aries New Moon on April 15 9:57pm ET.    By decluttering and getting rid of the broken down things and thoughts you will be ready for the new Treasure Map.    

Capricorn New Moon: 2018





Welcome to Capricorn New Moon 2018.  This feels like a goat of a different color.  Just sayin'

You will find my article as always at Margaret Wendt's website where I post it


Jupiter Sextile Pluto




Jupiter Sextile Pluto

January 15, 2018 11:13pm EST

Each year there are astrological themes generated by planetary aspects between outer planets that get our attention.   In 2018 bountiful Jupiter will sextile powerful Pluto three times.     The first hit is today, January 15, the next one is April 14 and the final is September 11.  These hits will be (in order) 19 degrees, 21 degrees and 19 degrees of Scorpio and Capricorn.

This is a gift to all of us who survived 2017’s harsh Jupiter Pluto squares (three of them) where fake and light was at war with real power and real regeneration.   When opportunities for real change appeared many chose to shine it on by being fake because they didn’t want to upset appearances or status quo.  Or were just simply scared for real change.     Others who were genuinely motivated and tried to make real change had some success after hard work but still felt they didn’t have complete success –it felt as if the Universe above was saying, “Not quite yet”.   Now Capricorn has its ruling planet Saturn in his sign adding some maturity and with this sextile three hits, the time might be right for real evolution.

Jupiter in transformative Scorpio is working WITH Pluto as they both try to build something better.   The sextile is a friendly, perhaps playful aspect that respects the other planet and sign and says, “Hey you got that and I have got this—we can do something good together.”     We dare to actually feel we might be able complete something if we put our mind and energy towards it.   Wow, what a breath of fresh air!

Jupiter in Scorpio is focused on transformation and releasing the dead so something new can emerge.   Pluto happens to rule Scorpio so he is thrilled to have Jupiter, the biggest planet in the solar system help clear out the dead so we can regenerate new growth.     It is worth noting that Pluto is past the half way mark of its long journey in Capricorn, which started in 2008—remember that year when the world economies went into the toilet?   And Pluto will leave in January of 2024.   That is a long journey for slowpoke Pluto so let’s make the most of any good aspects we get along the way.

With the sextile you should take a look in your world and see if you are feeling a break from negativity or blockage.  Perhaps you are finally feeling some movement.   Or the hints of movement in a ‘stuck’ area.     Maybe you are feeling a bit of optimism.   Today is the first round of the sextile –what can you do that speaks to transforming?   Even if it is one small thing—go for it.   We will be having this aspect two more times and as we run up to the aspect there could be opportunities that we have not experienced prior to 2018.    Also, the aspect is felt beyond the days it is exact so let’s add a week or ten days on either side of the exact dates as a period of influence.  

Special note:


We have discussed it many times that in 2022 Pluto will return to its natal place is the chart of the USA from July 4, 1776.   Pluto was at 27 Cap 57 at the launch of The American Revolution.   Pluto has not returned to that exact place at any time since the founding of the USA.   Now we are building towards the Pluto return.    You don’t need to be Doris Kearns Goodwin to know that something is going on with America that feels ‘different’ than in the previous 25 decades.   Watch and see how Jupiter sextile Pluto manifests this year and if it has any impact as we slowly bear down on Pluto’s return in 2022.   One more note we will start to feel Pluto on Pluto around 2020.  I can’t say for exact because well, this is the first time we have had it!

This Week In Astrology


We are in the final ten days of the Sag lunar cycle.  There is still fire in the air.  Where are you go-go-going?   Where are you feeling enthusiastic?  Are you getting in tangle ups?  Maybe a little mouthy? S. L. O. W. down if you can. 

We begin the week in last quarter phase of the moon, which puts the emphasis on relationships.   How are you partnering with others?  Is it in sync with the world?  Are you fighting the world together?  Are you inspired together? 

Venus and Pluto get into on the 9th and then on the 13th there is a round of Venus with Uranus.  This cycle happens once a year when Venus in Capricorn is prompted by Pluto to ask how is our self worth?  Are our values high enough?  Or are we rooted in low self-esteem but cover with pretense and snobbery?   Then a few days later the universe pushes and those things rooted in something other than self esteem may experiences something sharp or be jettisoned.   

On the 12th we move into balsamic phase where we release our ‘stuck-ness and rigidity” as we prepare for Capricorn new moon on the 16th. 

Last Quarter Moon Phase
Jan 8 2018
5:25pm  EST



Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.



Focus on:
What actions are you taking that speak to your relationships?  What actions are you taking that support balance?  What actions are you taking that speak to ‘sharing’?  What actions are you taking that feel tit-for-tat?

Special focus:

1/8: Sun conjunct Venus.   Love & money & values get showcased.
1/9: Venus conjunct Pluto.  Love of power.  Power of love.
1/10: Mercury enters Capricorn.  Light thoughts go to serious.  Practical thinking replaces too much enthusiastic thinking. 

Balsamic Moon Phase
January 12 2018
5:28pm EST

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on  How are we releasing  our black and white?  How are we releasing our morose nature?  How are we releasing our controlling nature? 

Special Focus:
1/12 Mercury conjunct Saturn.  Very dark thinking.  Very practical thinking.   Depressed thoughts our super business thinking. 
1/13 Venus square Uranus.  Love & Money & values get put on their side.  Not taking the usual approach to any of it.

Happy New Year!


Hello Friends!

I am back from my December adventures which took me to Australia.   It was a beautiful trip and I landed back in the US just before the full moon was exact.  I did see it in the sky as we flew and it was beautiful.

I did not have time to generate a proper full moon report but did a shout out for Astrology King.  If you did not read his report for Cancer Super Full Moon, please do.     Remember the full phase lasts 3 days so we are still in it.

After the full phase we move into disseminating.

2018 has a lot of big moves astrologically speaking, in particular Uranus move into Taurus, I believe will not go unnoticed.  I will keep you updated.

In the meantime enjoy the full moon and disseminating.


Disseminating
January 5 2018 
3:04am  EST  


Focus on:  How are you sharing your courage?  How are you sharing your strength?  How are you sharing your pride?  How are you sharing your drama?  How are you sharing your bold and your creativity?  

Special Focus:
1/6: Mercury trine Uranus.  Thoughtful creativity, communication that breaks through, thinking that breaks out. 
1/6: Mars conjunct Jupiter.  Actions that feel volcanic.  Beliefs and judgments that create evolution.
