A Cockblocking Earth

A Cockblocking Earth

First of all, a lunar eclipse is a difficult lunation.  It was a bit of a challenge to find the secret wisdom within this lunar eclipse, because one should always interpret the stars in an optimistic manner, while remaining entirely honest and transparent of the challenges presented.

The first 12 Days of The New Year represent the atomic level of the 12 months of the year.  This means that our consciousness, actions, and moods on these first 12 days will echo to the corresponding month.  So we need to become very focused and mindful during these first 12 days of January to ensure that our year will be a echo we want and not an avalanche!

So, this is how we practically use it.

January 1st represents the entire month of January.

It’s like the ambassador of January is coming to visit on January 1st to observe us and collect data.  It will interpret the data it collects as our order for that month.  It will then submit our order to the “cosmic chef” which will then serve us our January Meal of the Month.  This will happen for every month throughout the year within the feast of 2018.

Moving on January 2nd represents the entire month of February.  So our actions during this day will set the tone for the entire month of February.

Here are the correspondences:

January 1 = January
January 2 = February
January 3 = March
January 4 = April
January 5 = May
January 6 = June
January 7 = July
January 8 = August
January 9 = September
January 10 = October
January 11 = November
January 12 = December

Here are some tips to get through these days with effectively:

  • Don’t argue with others, just bite your tongue and save it for later.
  • Remain sober. While the idea of drinking your face off on NYE sounds tempting, just think of how it will effect the rest of your year especially given that January first is the seed level of not only January but the entire year too.
  • Read uplifting or challenging material.  This will increase your vibration and intelligence level.  It’s generally good to read things you don’t entirely understand, it’s the only way you can increase intelligence.  Plus, you want to submerge your mind with information that is supportive of life, wellness and improvement.  Try my essential mail articles for one.
  • Be open minded, but not too curious.
  • Establish a healthy routine.
  • Stretch daily.
  • Meditate daily. - if you need a good meditation program, please contact me on Twitter.
  • Diffuse stress as much as possible.  Try using aromatherapy to accomplish this.
  • Finally, read my weekly forecast to gain insight into each of the 12 days and what’s going on above that’s affecting your below.  Follow me on Twitter to get the daily updates.

New Year’s Resolutions should really only last these 12 days, that way you have planted the seeds for the rest of the year.

Buon appetito!

New Moon in Scorpio: A discriminating vision.


We are beginning a new lunar cycle with the new moon in Scorpio.  On the new moon, we can download all the insights and energy we need to overcome the challenges of the lunar month ahead as it sets the tone for how we will receive, for the next 28 days.

Every new moon presents us with a time when the moon is empty, ready to receive light.  We too, adopt this state of emptiness so that we can receive everything we need as we wax throughout the next days.

Scorpio is an archetype of intensity and mystery, very much connected with sexuality, regeneration and renewal.  It’s no wonder that the month will bring transformation into our lives.  Being the fixed water sign, Scorpio can be very set in its emotional ways and can hold a grudge like no other archetype in the zodiac.  We all have Scorpio in our chart, and this may be highlighted for us to look at where we hold grudges against others or ourselves.

Scorpio is also the archetype of death, which includes the letting go process  - it’s time to let these grudges go to free up our energy.

Since the new moon is a symbol of new beginnings, the question arises: how do we understand the symbolization of new beginnings within the realm of the archetype of death?

Well, it’s about rebirth.

On this new moon, we receive the energy to “rebirth” ourselves and projects which need an infusion of new energy.  Perhaps, if we think of our new year’s resolutions from this year, we can see where we stand with them before we make new ones.  Or maybe we need to let go of projects that are taxing our energy.

Putting on, or diffusing a few drops this Scorpio essential oil blend can help us align with this lunation.

This new moon is occurring in the third decan of Scorpio which is the moon decan itself, so we have double moon energy.  This means that we can receive the inner intelligence we need to see our castles in the sky and either bring them to earth or let them go.  It’s time to stop wasting energy on unrealistic ideals, and start spending energy on working hard to manifest our visions.  Scorpio wants us to be satisfied and satiated, and will bring assistance into our lives when we are honest.  It wants us to have intimate relationships and the ability to merge with another.  This could be a very potent time to spend with your loved one, or to set the intention to attract a partner you can be intimate and share ALL your life with.

But, before we can do this, Scorpio demands raw honesty and openness.  As we all have Scorpio in our chart, we need to look where this new moon is occurring.  The astrological house where this new moon is happening will tell us through which area of our life these energies will manifest.  It will also indicate a major area of focus for the next 28 days.  It’s almost like the movie 28 Days, where we need to rehabilitate this area and decompose any superficial layers we are using to hide our wounds, vulnerabilities and our inner most self.  It’s time to open up and allow the healing energy of death and transformation to prepare us for the expansion and wisdom that is to come.
