The Sun is in Aquarius!

The Sun is now in Aquarius!

The Sun’s journey through the constellation of Aquarius will last until Sunday, February 18. As the zodiac’s third air sign, Aquarius reflects the mature intellectual who thrives off objectivity. Aquarius is also infamous for being the best friend who forever remains loyal. While the Sun shines in Aquarius, you’ll have an opportunity to show up for a friend, become more active in your community, and create emotional distance from an ongoing circumstance that requires you to stretch your personality. This will help you gain wisdom as you strive to do bigger and better things, as Aquarius is also the sign of higher vision and new possibilities.

George Balanchine’s Birthday, 1-22-1904

George Balanchine, Founder of

New York City Ballet

George Balanchine & New York City Ballet Dancers

Aquarius Sun, Pisces Moon, Cancer Ascendant

God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it – from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do. George Balanchine

 

It’s not surprising that Mr. Balanchine, the father of neo classical ballet, is an Aquarius. His imagination and vision were well ahead of his time. He had a talent for bringing out the individuality of his dancers and bringing them to the edge of their capability. Yet, he also cherished the oneness of his dancers, and took pride in his collective vision of perfection.

As the 11th sign of the zodiac Aquarius sees the big picture, and needs to make a special contribution to the future- whether this involves a community, social movement, or humanitarian cause, Aquarius is born with a mission. Mr. Balanchine’s devotion to his dancers, which eventually (with the assistance Lincoln Kirstein) became New York City Ballet, is now historical, yet still lives in the future as through his creation of the Balanchine technique.

Musicality was Mr. Balanchine’s greatest gift, as he had great respect for music in its own right. With the Moon in Pisces, the most musical sign of the zodiac, he had a natural sense of rhythm, and flow. A trained classical pianist, he likely could just as easily been a composer. With his rising sign in Cancer, the sign of family and nurturing, Mr. Balanchine was comfortable taking on a father role-feeling personally responsible for the welfare of his dancers, and taking care of them. He was known for his generosity and loyalty, for once a dancer was chosen to ride under his wing, the sky would emerge and reveal the brightest stars.

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius~

An Aquarius Lunar Eclipse

Aquarius Lunar Eclipse

The Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will leave you feeling optimistic and energized, which will set a positive tone for the entire month of August. The opposition to Mars, however ( the planet of aggression), suggests you’ll have to fight for your unique vision in regards to a future goal, and it might be difficult to convince a VIP to see things your way. Still, the overall impact will be a good one, thanks to the moon’s beautiful alignment with Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, now in Libra, the sign of partnership. A significant relationship will be in the spotlight. Full moons bring awareness, and a lunar eclipse has three to four times the impact of a full moon. Your intuition will be strong now, especially if you’re an Aquarius,- so trust your feelings.  With a touch of social finesse, you can make a significant gain via a connection with someone in the know. A legal matter, intellectual endeavor, media pursuit, or business opportunity will can be finalized now, and the results will likely make you very happy (as that’s Jupiter’s job)!

For mortal to aid mortal-this is God. Pliny the Elder

A full moon in Gemini will arrive Tuesday, December 13, and its influence will carry on until Christmas.  As the sign of correspondence and trade, Gemini likes to keep us moving.  You can expect the last two weeks to be busy, but no so much that you can’t make extra time to catch up with friends and socialize. Keep in mind Mercury (Gemini’s ruler), will be retrograde from Thursday, December 19, thru Monday, January, 9, which will definitely keep things interesting. Gifts cards will likely be the safest bet for fickle loved ones.  Loved ones you know very well may undergo a change in personal taste that may be nearly impossible for you to anticipate.

The good news is the full moon will be in beautiful alignment with Jupiter, the Santa Clause of astrology (now in Libra, the planet of relationships).  So, even if you miss the mark with a special gift, your generosity will be graciously received.  The new moon will arrive Thursday, December 29, in Capricorn. This new moon will a great way to usher in 2017, as it will firmly shake hands with the action planet, Mars, (which will be in Pisces).  The following two week will be a great time to get down to business (a Capricorn virtue) while be guided by what truly inspires you (thanks to Pisces).

For those who will celebrate Christmas, you can look forward to a beautiful day. A most fortuitous and rare alignment between Venus and Jupiter will click in perfection on Christmas day, 8:23 a.m. EST. Venus, the planet of love and affection, will be in Aquarius, a fabulous match for Jupiter in Libra.  Indeed, if you are an air sign, this Christmas will likely be very memorable.  And for all the rest, no matter your faith, this day will likely lift your spirits, and make you want to sing your favorite song.

A Solar Eclipse in Pisces~

A Pisces Solar Eclipse Paves the Way for 2016~

Solar Eclipse in Pisces

 

Today hosts the first Solar Eclipse of 2016, in the zodiac’s last sign, Pisces. An interesting mix, as this suggests a new beginning with a tone of finality, like a new chapter that begins with a memory, flashback, or foreshadowing of what’s to come. Intuition is what Pisces is all about, and it’s often said that what will be in the future has already been laid out by a string of thoughts, ideas, and quiet longings that have slowly been gathering, to create momentum.

Consider this idea as you move ahead in a particular area of your life, and you  may be surprised to realize how well the route has been laid out to your new destination. If you don’t see a route however, you’ll likely need to take a detour, and this is largely what Solar Eclipses are all about-fresh starts.  It’s  kind of like that moment in Flash Dance , when audition time has come, and the music plays- but the steps aren’t quite polished… something is off.

Nothing wrong with that, however! She (actress Jennifer Beals), just asks if she can start over,  and from there on, it’s magic. She’s in control, yet totally free. I think this shows the beauty of timing. There are times when we need to start over, and if you truly feel you need a re-start- if you ask God, your higher power, or whatever you believe in, (Pisces is a highly spiritual sign), to start again, chances are excellent that you’ll get another chance, and this time- you’ll nail it.

More on that to come, as there are some other planetary alignments that will require you to carefully strategize. Until then,  here’s s a snap shot of what changes this eclipse will bring for you in the next several months. Pisces is gentle energy, but it also runs deep~

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

A new beginning for your life dream, a spiritual journey, or healing experience will likely be inevitable,  for you to be your best~

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

You’ll be revived by a new friendship, spiritual community, or philanthropic pursuit, which will likely change your outlook on the future~

 GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Your public persona will become magnified- how do you want to be seen? Clarify that vision!

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

What do you most believe in? A spiritual review will likely lead you back on course, and to a personal breakthrough~

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Vulnerability will be the main theme in an intimate relationship. Your sensitivity will grant you power to make things right.

 VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Do you feel need support? You can get someone special to be on the same page with you-once you embrace your humility, and reach out~

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Infuse your lifestyle with things that nurture your soul, and life will feel so much easier! You can find a new way to solve an old problem~

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Harness your creativity, as this will unlock the power of your self expression, and give you a deeper sense of purpose.

 SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Look inside yourself for an answer you’ve been avoiding, or uncertain of, and you’ll likely clear emotional debris from a long standing obstacle-soon which may be no longer~

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Remember that it’s okay to change your mind- especially if you’re certain of  what lies in your heart~

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Challenge yourself to develop a new value that reflects your  higher, idealized self. This will likely carry the fuel that will jumpstart and redirect your life~

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Well- it’s all about you. That being said, you may realize you’ve become someone other than you thought. The depth of your life purpose is on the horizon~

A Tribute to Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole.jpg

Natalie Cole

An Unforgettable Lady

I was heart struck to hear of Natalie Cole’s passing. Sometimes people would mistake my mother for her, and her passing reminded me of my mother’s charm and natural elegance. As the daughter of legendary Nat King Cole, Natalie had quite a path to follow, but eventually, she found her own voice, and she never gave up.  She was brutally honest about her battle with substance abuse in in her courageous autobiography, Angel on My Shoulder, a beautiful autobiography  that resounds with faith (Ms. Cole’s Aquarius Sun was in perfect harmony with Neptune, the planet symbolic of  angelic forces).  Even though she often shined in the unforgettable light of her father, Nat King Cole, she went on to join the Aquarian family (Oprah Winfrey, Abraham Lincoln) and  made her own way-which led to her multiple Grammy Award legacy.  The road was not easy however, but she never gave up. With Terpsichore in Capricorn, the sign of longevity and commitment, I believe her singing gave her a spiritual foundation.

May she rest in peace~

A Virgo Inspiration~

If you’re a Virgo, expect a double dip of pleasure, for astrologically, today is a most special day-the luckiest day of the year! Jupiter, the planet of faith opportunity, expansion, and abundance, made its grand entrance in August 11. Today Jupiter will be embraced by the bright rays of the summer Sun, which is now in Virgo too!

Virgo is the quintessential symbol or purity. Whether you strive for  purity of heart, moral intention, or  consciousness, today you’ll likely experience a glimpse of the truth. Your unique character will easily align with a virtue you’re working hard to attain or develop. You may get ‘an hah moment’, while performing the simplest of tasks, or a day dream may send you a special message that may lead to a breakthrough about your unique place in the in word.

No matter what sign you are, believe in your ability to buckle down, focus, and get organized, and you’ll likely outdo yourself with a job incredibly well done!
