Thomas Edison ...yes, Mr. Aquarius....

This week I watched An American Experience:Thomas Edison.   Honestly, I like Tesla more but that doesn't mean I can't  appreciate Edison.   Edison was an Aquarius and I was thinking what a perfect time to watch his life story.   He really is so Aquarius.  The inventor of the light bulb had nothing but 'light bulb' moments his entire life.   Many of his brilliant thoughts we all benefit from today.   God knows I like electricity.    He also had monumental failures.   But he never let the failures stop him from pursuing the next bulb.   As a fairly young man he invented the phonograph, much to Alexander Bell's annoyance.   Then Edison and his team invented the light bulb.  

Unfortunately, Edison did get out in front of his skis with his ego.   Edison was not educated enough to have the math skills to figure out AC/DC currents and George Westinghouse won that battle.  But instead of holing up and going into a pity party he followed his brain on new ideas.  Again more failures however  he felt invigorated.  Thinking and pushing following light bulbs gave him spirit.
His fiery Moon in Sag is so much apart of his journey for sure. But the Aquarius is the brilliance and having vision and the story here.   In 1891 having already invented the light bulb and phonograph he and his team invented an early  motion picture....

Here is Annie Oakley being filmed in the first motion picture at Edison's studio in East Orange NJ.   He was in his 50's.

Edison was a complicated man, an ass for sure, competitive, ruthless and for sure, short fused and not in touch with his feelings (Ha! that is an understatement) but he was Aquarius and not afraid of his light bulb moments.  

We are almost half way through the Aquarius lunar cycle---are you keeping track of your own brilliant ideas and flashes of insight?  Are you jumping on them?   Are you dusting yourself off after any so called set backs?   Good.   Keep your light bulbs going.

The Week Ahead

The Week Ahead

We spend the weekend in the Gibbous Moon.    We are in an analyzing cycle this weekend.  The Gibbous Moon is the period before the Full Moon, a time to discriminate and organize.    This cycle we are focused on our thinking.

Focus on:
What have we missed about our thinking? Where is our thinking off?  Where is our thinking ‘right on’?  Analyze your communication.  How is it?  Are you a reliable narrator?  Or is it fuzzy?  What are you missing about your communication?

Special Focus:
2/1: Venus con Neptune:  Love is gentle. Intuition is lovely.  Bumps in love and money feel like they are melting.  Ah.
2/2: Sun sext. Uranus:   Sparks, the soul feels energized.  Purposeful friends make us feel alive.  

In the beginning of the week we move into Full Moon.

Full Moon Phase
February 3, 2015

 This full moon is focused on your GIFTS.    Your TALENTS.  What you bring to the party that NO ONE else brings.    The party needs your gifts.  Do you think you bring nothing special or of note?   Stop that nonsense now!!!   

A more detailed post to follow.

Special focus:

2/5: Mercury sext Saturn:  Work is easy and productive.  What did you almost forget that you are now doing?   The brain is relieved.  

2/6: Sun opp Jupiter: Everything feels bigger than God.  Where is the gravity pulling you?   Where are you trying to build a bridge but bumping into Ego. Try if you can to find the balance.

Coming UP

Crescent Moon Phase
January 23
1:30pm EST

Crescent:  We will receive information, we will research a bit more, perhaps get feedback on stuff that we planted on new.  Perhaps get some information that will help down the road on a seed we planted a while ago.  We can collect some data now.  Even if you think you are not getting information, stop, and re-look at everything.  Who called you?  Even the silliest things, when they come up during Crescent are note worthy.  A parking ticket?  An argument with a spouse?  A refund check from the phone company?  All of it needs to be considered a message from the universe.  How can this information help you?

Focus on:  What are you learning about faith? What are you learning about your intuition?  What are you learning about your artistic nature?  What are you learning about your WooWoo side?   How does Spirit talk to you?  

Special Focus:

1/25: Venus semisq Uranus.  Love and money get a bit chaotic.   Changes that rile up love and values.
1/26: Venus semisq Pluto.   Sometimes we get bitchslapped just so we get the message…maybe it is time to evolve or maybe it is time to find our power. 

First Quarter Moon
January 26
11:48pm EST

First quarter: We do more actions based on the information that we just received.  Or we feel our instincts guide us on something.  We pursue again.  We make another call or we see someone. We mail something.  We stir the pot again.  This can be a time when we realize that the goals we planted on New need more action from us, perhaps actions that involve breaking away.   Are there people who say they have our best interest in heart but fear us growing away from them?  Maybe we need to get help from others not the usual suspects.  Some independence may need to be exerted.

Focus on:  What actions can you take that support your finances?  What actions are you doing that build up your resources?  How are the people in your life supporting your resources?  What actions can you take that build up a group of people around you who help support your resources?

Special focus
1/30: Venus sq Saturn: Cold reality hits love, money and values.   Yes, we all have to grow up.
1/30: Mars sext Pluto:  Actions based on deep matters.  Transformative energy exerted.
1/30: Sun Con Mercury: Purpose and brain are united.  Something we almost forgot about comes to the surface. 

Gibbous Moon
January 30
5:57pm am EST  

We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions. 

Focus on:
What have we missed about our thinking? Where is our thinking off?  Where is our thinking ‘right on’?  Analyze your communication.  How is it?  Are you a reliable narrator?  Or is it fuzzy?  What are you missing about your communication?

Special Focus:
2/1: Venus con Neptune:  Love is gentle. Intuition is lovely.  Bumps in love and money feel like they are melting.  Ah.

2/2: Sun sext. Uranus:   Sparks, the soul feels energized.  Purposeful friends make us feel alive.

Did you feel Mercury Move?

Mercury retrograde
January 21, 10:54am EST 

We are going to get a gift this cycle and yes, I am saying gift, of a Mercury retrograde in Aquarius.  In fact within 24 hours of the New Moon, Mercury will appear to go backwards launching the first of three retrogrades in 2015.   On January 21 Mercury will go from 17 Degrees Aquarius all the way back to 1 degree of Aquarius on Feb 11 and then it will appear to turn around and head right back towards 17 degrees of Aquarius which it will hit March 3 and then add another week or two.   This is a lot of weeks of Mercury in Aquarius.   Our minds will be blown away.   If we are really getting it.   And it is not an accident, in my opinion, that this Aquarius cycle which is robust with potential will have a Mercury retrograde entirely in Aquarius.    Why isn’t Mercury retro in Cap or in Pisces?   It could have been but it is not.   Spirit in its infinite wisdom is getting our brains screwed in tight with Aquarian energy.   Watch the stuff that comes up that speaks to friends, groups, brilliance, light bulb ideas and genius.   Of course it is a retrograde so there will be missteps or hurdles with all that stuff.  Also, the less evolved side of Aquarius could be in our world or in the news.   Rebels who take pleasure in being provocateurs but set up no real reforms.   Stubbornness, rigidity of beliefs that do not serve.  People who insist ‘damn it, I’m standing my ground” even if it is stupid.   And there will be people who really do cut off their nose to spite their face.    Cuckoo crazy chaotic people and situations will show up during this Mercury in Aquarius retrograde.    If you get caught up in anyone’s cuckoo crazy, walk away.   And if you are doing any of these things or want to do it….stop it.   Find a new way to be brilliant.

Aquarius New Moon -- The Zero One

The Aquarius New Moon is on Tuesday January 20 at 8:13am EST.  

You will find my article HERE.

I trust you will heed the advice.  

Here is a snippet...go to the link above for the full article.

0 Aquarius 08

Welcome to Aquarius.

It is time for us to embrace this last air sign of the zodiac.  Big time.   So seriously, ……Welcome to Aquarius. 

We are having our fourth new moon in a row at zero degrees (and change).  Since October the new moon energy starts from the beginning of its sign and every day of the 28-Day lunar cycle.    So, now we are getting our Aquarius on.  We all need it.   And the next two new moons will be at 29 degrees and change putting it right back close to zero.  This will end up being six months of auspicious lunar cycles.   None of us should be asleep at the wheel.   

Aquarius is the eleventh sign (out of twelve) and the final air sign.    Gemini and Libra are the other two air signs and they speak to how we think & communicate and how we relate to one another.   But with Aquarius the relating and the thinking is bigger, broader than you and I chit chatting.    Case in point, Aquarius rules electricity, radio and television, computers and the Internet.   Think about that connection.   If there was no Aquarius you would not be reading this article right now.    You would have to go to your bookstore and get an astrology magazine to read a New Moon article (Gemini) or you would set up an appointment with an astrologer for one on one (Libra) insights.      But with the Internet, information is available to you, thousands of years of research is at your fingertips.     Millions of people all over the world have insights, information, data that you, I and everyone else can access in two seconds.   That is Aquarius.   

Aquarius is brilliant, genius, eccentric, innovative, odd and above all not afraid to be his own person.   Yes, Aquarius energy can be rebellious for no other reason than to be rebellious.   But let’s not focus on the rebels without a cause.  Let’s go deeper.

Have you ever had a brilliant idea?   Did you discard it?    Have you ever had a genius moment?    Did you discard it?  Have you ever had an innovative moment?  Did you blow it off?    Have you connected with a group of people and felt completely uplifted because you were all on the same page?  And then did you walk away from that group and that feeling and marginalize it as ‘really no big deal’?
