JANUARY 23 - JANUARY 29

We can put our fingers in our ears and pretend we don't notice, but the times they are a changing. This week brings the end of three cycles and the beginnings of three new ones. The New Moon in Aquarius on Friday afternoon is a youthful and visionary spirit. Like idealistic and pragmatic Prometheus, the mythological god who was punished severely by Zeus for stealing fire and giving it to mankind, we are not ignorant of the difficulties and challenges ahead. Also like Prometheus, we know the path lies before us; there is no going back. If we are to see progress, we must push forward. We may step in the footprints of our ancestors, parents, teachers and mentors, but for true success, we will hoist ourselves up on their shoulders for a better view. During this lunar cycle we will look back with gratitude for the experiences and lessons learned, but with resolve will be willing to rebel against the limitations of the past as we seek to create a better future.

On Friday night, energy and motivation get a boost as Mars the planet of initiation and action finds its way back home to its kindred spirit sign of Aries. Although known for being headstrong and even reckless, this cycle of Mars in Aries will be tempered by Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Libra while being supported by Saturn in Sagittarius and inspired by Uranus, also in Aries. It could be a bit of a bumpy ride with an uneven pace; however, we can harness this energy best by using our heads. That might be a little tough for Aries that is more of the ‘shoot first and ask questions later' persuasion.
Solid strides will be made when we question the traditional ways of doing things without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Grounding our strategies in good research will speed our success.

On Saturday get yourself out to a Chinese Restaurant or cultural center. This is the Chinese New Year celebrating the active, social, and proud Fire Rooster. During years under this influence the importance of qualities such as loyalty and trustworthiness are prized. Roosters are said to be straightforward and blunt in their communications, fashionable in their dress and presentation, and organized in their work and homes. Roosters are believed to be highly motivated and hard-working. Sounds great for getting those projects off the ground and a good excuse to update our wardrobes!

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

Magician Inspiration for the Week:
It may seem like a no brainer and an obvious choice, but I couldn't pass on Oprah Winfrey, born January 29, 1954. The woman is a super hero of motivation in so many ways. Not surprising she is a forward-thinking Aquarian with Sun, Venus, and Mercury in this mental air sign. Can you smell the determination and perseverance? A passionate and fiery Moon in Sagittarius keeps her on the continual hunt for the truth.

A second shout out goes to actor, director, screenwriter, and author Alan Alda. His talents earned him six Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe. Born on January 28, 1936, Alda also has Sun and Mercury in visionary Aquarius. His Moon is courageous and fiery Aries. Interesting since he has noted that anger is a strong and motivating force within his life. (Not that I'm saying Aries Moons are angry, LOL! But let's face it; they are better at blowing off steam than a lot of us!) Looks like Alda found some constructive and profitable outlets.

MONDAY
JANUARY 23
MOON in SAGITTARIUS

We start the week in the eighth and final phase of the lunar cycle. The reflected light of the Sagittarius Moon gets smaller each day; yet don't let the diminishing light get you down. This is the time we have the opportunity to integrate the lessons of the previous three weeks. Less external light may actually be a sign of growing internal light and wisdom.

Sagittarius is a flexible and dualistic sign which seeks the path of truth. Its method is to experience and try to understand opposites and seeming paradoxes. This energy stands in both the physical and spiritual realms seeking understanding by looking at both the dark and the light. Willingness to stand in neutrality, without jumping to conclusions or judgments, allows us to develop better informed ideas and beliefs.

Mercury the messenger aligns with Neptune the planet of dissolution and dreams today. This energy facilitates imagination, creativity, intuition, and alignment with our inner guides and teachers. We are probably more sensitive and even gullible today. It's important to understand the difference between fiction, make believe, and the truth. We all love storytelling when it comes to novels and movies; but may not be so appreciative of the long tales and deceptions when they come from our boss, one of our children, or a partner or significant other. Consider honesty and integrity today. How valuable is it in your everyday life? What truths are you willing to ignore, deny, or stretch?

Mercury connected to Neptune also ushers in compassion and forgiveness. Maybe we can find a little kindness for ourselves and others even when we and they don't live up to our expectations.

Daily Muse: ‘When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.'
(Maya Angelou.)

Remember this because it will happen many times in your life. When people show you who they are the first time believe them. Not the 29th time. When a man doesn't call you back the first time, when you are mistreated the first time, when someone shows you lack of integrity or dishonesty the first time, know that this will be followed many many other times, that will some point in life come back to haunt or hurt you. Live your life in truth. Don't pretend to be someone you're not. You will survive anything if you live your life from the point of view of truth. (Oprah Winfrey)

TUESDAY
JANUARY 24
MOON in SAGITTARIUS/CAPRICORN

Moon Void of Course 9:33 am (PST) – 2:43 pm

Our night time dreams may be grounded in reality and seriousness as the Moon joins sober Saturn in the early morning hours. An equally sobering square between the hopeful Moon in Sagittarius and motivational Mars in sensitive Pisces occurs a few hours later. Although this energy can be emotionally deflating, it can be a gift and likely a precursor to the Moon's move to pragmatic Capricorn this afternoon. Venus the planet of values has a date with Chiron, also a gift with a challenge. Are we willing to turn our perceived vulnerabilities into strengths?

There is no reason to get our panties in a twist. This is a day for practical wisdom. Yes, people or events may have a way of disrupting our plans or pointing out the weak spots in our ideas. Thank God! You really don't want to start off on a flat tire or without a vital piece of information do you? This is a day we can honestly look at our limits and figure out ways to move past them. It's not personal, it's physics! Accept every difference of opinion or criticism as possibly holding a valuable piece of information. Take everything under consideration with your inner guide and teacher.

Daily Muse: I found I wasn't asking good enough questions because I assumed I knew something…Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in. (Alan Alda)

Today on Simpletales my guest is my good friend, colleague, and inspiration, Psychic Katt Hall. We'll have some fun discussing current events and the cosmic dance. You'll find us live at 10 am Pacific 1 Eastern on 12Radio.com.

WEDNESDAY
JANUARY 25
MOON in CAPRICORN


The crusty Moon in determined Capricorn is softened today by the infusion of Neptunian spiritual values and vision. Just when a situation may feel hopeless, new opportunities solutions spring into view. We'll have to look to our imaginations instead of relying on what we think we already know. As the Moon connects with thinking Mercury we can use a little logic to back out of that dead-end situation or conversation and look for some promising alternative directions.

Don't fight for your limits today; imagine moving beyond them.

Daily Muse: The difference between listening and pretending to listen, I discovered, is enormous. One is fluid, the other is rigid. One is alive, the other is stuffed. Eventually, I found a radical way of thinking about listening. Real listening is a willingness to let the other person change you. When I'm willing to let them change me, something happens between us that's more interesting than a pair of dueling monologues. (Alan Alda)

THURSDAY
JANUARY 26
MOON in CAPRICORN

Moon Void of Course 11:18 pm (PST) – 12:37 am Friday morning

Today is the last day of the lunar cycle and it's anything but quiet. This lunar landscape is a hotbed of planetary interactions. With so much bumping and jostling around no one can blame us if we're a bit unpredictable or moody. Today is the last day in another cycle as well, Mars in mystical and intuitive Pisces. (Mars enters its home sign of Aries tomorrow.)

As a day of ‘lasts' we may not feel complete, but that doesn't mean we can't honor the need to clean up a few messes. Excuses be gone! We will shift our focus and strategies tomorrow, but today is still a very fertile time for crossing some very important tasks off our to-do list. With challenging lunar squares to Uranus and Jupiter in the morning we may make a few false starts, but this afternoon and evening it should be smoother sailing as we get our priorities straight and our energy focused with lunar sextiles to Venus and Mars.

Daily Muse: You know, it's hard work to write a book. I can't tell you how many times I really get going on an idea, then my quill breaks. Or I spill ink all over my writing tunic. (Ellen DeGeneres, born January 26, 1958.)

FRIDAY
JANUARY 27
MOON in CAPRICORN / AQUARIUS

Moon enters Aquarius 12:37 am (PST)
New Moon 8 Aquarius 4:07 pm (PST)
Mars enters Aries 9:39 pm (PST)

We can put our fingers in our ears and pretend we don't notice, but the times they are a changing. Today we enter into a new Lunar and a new Martian cycle. But first, the independence and emotional aloofness of the Aquarian Moon may be accentuated by a prickly square between Venus the planet of love, and Saturn the planet of commitment. It is time to re-evaluate a few relationships. Not necessarily a time to leave or dissolve a partnership, but promises need to be reconsidered in light of changing expectations or new circumstances or information. This applies to our thinking about finances and budgets too.

The New Moon in Aquarius is a youthful and visionary spirit. Like idealistic and pragmatic Prometheus, the mythological god who was punished severely by Zeus for stealing fire and giving it to mankind, we are not ignorant of the difficulties and challenges ahead. Also like Prometheus, we know the path lies before us; there is no going back. If we are to see progress, we must push forward. We may step in the footprints of our ancestors, parents, teachers and mentors, but for true success, we will hoist ourselves up on their shoulders for a better view. During this lunar cycle we will look back with gratitude for the experiences and lessons learned, but with resolve will be willing to rebel against the limitations of the past as we seek to create a better future.

Tonight, energy and motivation get a boost as Mars the planet of initiation and action finds its way back home to its kindred spirit sign of Aries. Although known for being headstrong and even reckless, this cycle of Mars in Aries will be tempered by Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Libra while being supported by Saturn in Sagittarius and inspired by Uranus, also in Aries. It could be a bit of a bumpy ride with an uneven pace; however, we can harness this energy best by using our heads. That might be a little tough for Aries that is more of the ‘shoot first and ask questions later' persuasion.
Solid strides will be made when we question the traditional ways of doing things without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Grounding our strategies in good research will speed our success.

Daily Muse: Dreams without movement are delusions, escapes, kid's play. You have to put your feet into your dreams if they're ever going to be reality. The dreamers we know and love today are the ones who worked the hardest
(Paul Newman, born January 26, 1925)

SATURDAY
JANUARY 28
MOON in AQUARIUS

Moon Void of Course 9:52 pm (PST) – 8:10 am Sunday Morning
Happy Chinese New Year – Fire Rooster

Feel like eating Chinese or indulging in a bit of Asian culture? Good day for it as this is the Chinese New Year celebrating the active, social, and proud Fire Rooster. During years under this influence the importance of qualities such as loyalty and trustworthiness are valued. Roosters are said to be straightforward and blunt in their communications, fashionable in their dress and presentation, and organized in their work and homes. Roosters are believed to be highly motivated and hard-working. Sounds great for getting those projects off the ground!

Meanwhile back to a Western Astrology perspective, the lunar connections are favorable today. The Aquarian Moon is both nostalgic and idealistic. Maybe that's because in our heart of hearts we realize both the gifts and limitations of living on planet earth. Despite our best intentions for grabbing onto and holding the good in our lives, growth demands we dance to an ever present melody of release and embrace.

Daily Muse: We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are. (Oprah Winfrey)

SUNDAY
JANUARY 29
MOON in AQUARIUS / PISCES

Moon enters Pisces 8:10 am (PST)

Pluto is known as the planet of transformation, the destroyer and the great eliminator. We tend to downplay those last two monikers, as people tend to go running for the hills! However, I bring it up today because Mercury in Capricorn is meeting up with Pluto today. This is an annual event, so not to be overly dreaded. In fact, with the right perspective it is downright refreshing! This serious connection allows us to move away from ungrounded fears and anxieties and move forward with more mental clarity and purpose. Actually, I'm not sure I can say it better than Alan Alda; so please be sure to read the quote below.

The Moon slips into compassionate Pisces this morning which makes this the perfect day for spiritual endeavors and creative past times. As Pluto helps clear our minds of what's old and unnecessary, the Moon can fill our hearts and minds with ideas only the soul can imagine.

Daily Muse: It's really clear to me that you can't hang onto something longer than its time. Ideas lose certain freshness, ideas have a shelf life, and sometimes they have to be replaced by other ideas. (Alan Alda)

Out Of Mo's Mind
Mo

I was given quite a compliment today. I was told that it was nice to speak to someone in my profession who didn't have an obvious liberal bias. I don't think it's a secret to anyone how I felt about the election, or the subsequent events, but I realized that it's truly not about that for me. I genuinely believe that this is a time for healing and for getting back to real life.

We are about to enter into one of the most fascinating and eventful times in our history. Personally, I've never seen anything like it – not even close. It's both energizing and inclusive, in that almost everyone has an opinion about the times were in. There is nothing worse in any society or culture than apathy. It's my hope that the era of apathetic thinking is on the way out and a new, involved and excited energy is on its way in. This doesn't mean that we all have to be politically active, or even aware, but it does imply that we should care about those things that improve the lives of others, as well as ourselves.

I was in the grocery store yesterday and I saw a woman eating as many tiny containers of sample, cut up ham as she could. She was tossing the contents of little plastic cups into her mouth like someone throwing back shots of tequila. She then stacked several full cups on top of each other, looked around and quickly left. My heart broke because I realized that she was hungry. It was evident that she probably struggles month-to-month and even day-to-day. I recalled times in my own life that were difficult and remember how alone I felt, especially from the standpoint that I wasn't sure that anyone cared.

The election is over. Good riddance to a terrible process and an intrusive energy into our lives. I'm ready to convert the intense, manic energy, that has been thrust upon us for months, into something more positive, hopefully helping to alleviate the hunger or pain felt in our own neighborhoods. I don't want others to feel alone and uncared for any longer. We all have worries; I certainly have mine, but regardless of my state, I feel compelled to help others shed their concerns. In the midst of rampant inhumanity, I refuse to fall into numbness and uncaring complacency.

This is a time for healing. I'll keep aware of what's happening in the present, hopefully being able to stay on the side of solutions and not problems, and never give up hope, nor the dream of a more peaceful, loving world in my lifetime. I know many people who didn't vote as I did, and not one of them is an evil bane on society. They share the same ache, have their own problems and pray that they make the right decisions. Some are our friends and family, and it may be time to remind them, and ourselves, of that fact.

I'm tired of divisiveness and the ideological battle that will undoubtedly rage on, but it will have to do so without my anger, fear or resentment. Instead, I choose to shake off the bitterness and not slip into a self-imposed state of helplessness. I matter. You matter. Let's never forget that and let us stick together and try to ease the pain of our fellow travelers. We're believers in something greater than the norm. Such is our power. Such is our gift, both given and received.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

Emotional Resilience-Avoiding Avoidance

I have been hosting talk radio for 6 ½ years. I love radio, fell in love on my first live show and have been talking on the air waves ever since. Our first incarnation of the The Psychic Sisters was a call in show on Blogtalk Radio. On that first show we had 10 callers. I have never been so overwhelmed in my life as I was that day, watching the call queue fill up. I was unprepared for how radio would affect my energy. I never really thought about what it meant to have all of those people, people I didn't know, plugging in to me during the show. After the show I was exhausted, drained. This seemed strange to me because radio was such a positive experience. It took me a while to figure out the energy dynamics of radio. People listening felt connected to what I had to say, plugged in to me during the show, and afterward I was exhausted. I learned that I needed to push my energy out into the world as I spoke on the radio, sending a big burst of love and positivity to everyone listening. This way I could share who I am, inspire others, and come away from radio feeling energized. This is energy resilience. Using our thoughts to control our energy bodies for a positive result is key to resilience.

I have been teaching for a long time that our thoughts control the function of our energy bodies. This can happen intentionally or unconsciously. It happens no matter what, but learning to direct our energy with conscious intent gives a whole new level of control over ourselves. Here are a few examples from my own experiences.

While working in my metaphysical store I occasionally had a customer walk in the door who I knew immediately had ill intent for me. I could feel it emanating from them in waves. In my mind I slammed my energy door shut, closing off energy interaction between me and the other person. This kept me safe from energy attack, attachment or whatever else the person intended. There are all kinds of people in the world, and not all of them have our best interest at heart. It is ok to close yourself off for protection. Your energy door should never stay closed, it is a short-term solution meant for protection. Closing yourself off long term will damage your relationships, distance you from people in a way you don't want.

While working a social worker I discovered that many of my clients were plugging their energy extension cords into me. They struggled with emotional problems and felt safe and stable with me. That is a good thing, but I couldn't allow someone to take my life force energy. That is not healthy for anyone. I learned to send life force energy to them, love from my heart, while with them in order to help them and protect me.

I am an empath and have a tendency to pick up emotional energy from all the people I come into contact with. I discovered that my bubble, the energy that emanates from me to my arm's length, would fill up with other people's emotional energy. This bubble is meant to be my own energy it is what I use to interact with the world. It was very confusing when that field of energy was loaded with other people's emotions. I learned that draining the extra emotional energy from my bubble every day kept me feeling bright and clear, vibrating high and sure of my own needs and desires.

These are a few examples of energy resilience that I use regularly. Join me on Monday, 1/23 for Kindred Spirits at 10 am PST on 12radio.com. I will be sharing more about energy resilience and teaching skills that we can all use to develop energy resilience.

Much love,
Kristi

The Gifts of Aqaurius
James Ray

For the early portion of my life, I had no idea about Astrology. I could not have told you my sign or moon or even know what it meant. When I first became interested in my mid 20's, I was exposed to popular astrology and horoscopes. Knowing only what the excerpt told me, I was constantly flummoxed by the narrow minded scope of these musings. I was feeling branded as an “Aquarius” with no room for expansion or possibility of change. I did NOT like that feeling, and felt that astrology was BS. It wasn't until later, upon some synchronistic run ins, that I decided that there was SOMETHING to the astrology thing.

Ironically, this very much describes the path of Aquarius. Stumbling upon deep information and eschewing it to preserve a sense of independence and self reliance. That response, of thinking that astrology was just another foolish idea, is a response that I find daily. I was born on February 10th, under the sun in Aquarius ((cancer rising, moon in virgo for those who are interested)). I am never far from the solution, but at the same time, I can be incredibly distant from practically applying this wisdom.

There is a vulnerability to Aquarius, feeling so open, so expressed, and at times, the only voice of reason. It is NOT that Aquarians don't have emotions, it is that their importance is trivial compared to other signs. Many of us put too much focus on how we feel, on our emotional state. Some individuals, poised and focused on their path, give no credence to the ebbs and flows of their emotional body. Whether it is too much focus, or a lack thereof, both stances leave us lost or lacking direction. Like all other things in life, emotions are a gift, a tool, a utility.

Aquarius seeks to improve and, in the process, hopefully reboot and recharge the psyche. Deep psychological underpinnings become open to expression and upgrade, as the importance of emotions begins to fade into the background. Aquarius is quite the creator, and the majority of our blockages have to do with outmoded belief systems, Aquarius makes this glaringly obvious.

It is not uncommon for us to use our emotional state as an excuse for allowing our lives to be “less than we truly desire”. How ironic, that it is the belief system, the thought system, that causes the emotional response. For example, when I feel sad or depressed, I may be reluctant to go out and be around people, which consistently improves my mood. Another example, when I feel weighed down by anxiety, I am more likely to procrastinate things such as going to the bank or meeting my writing deadlines. Again, if I were to just do these things, I would be actively participating in the antidote to my emotional state.

The reason I share this with you now, a few days into Aquarius 2017, is because I want you to see this gift, as well as the potential downfall…

Riding the Crest of the Emotional Wave

The time of Aquarius is trying to show you, in whatever playful way that it can, that you do not really know anything. Aquarius tells you that YOU are NOTHING and EVERYTHING, simultaneously. You are an INDIVIDUAL and also part of the COLLECTIVE, simultaneously. You are a walking, talking, dancing, eating, breathing, sleeping PARADOX, and shall never truly be defined.

This, my friends, is why Aquarius is the great teacher of emotional responsibility. Uranus rules the higher mind, and that higher mind wants access to all parts of the mind, including the subconscious. Subconscious programming goes deep and requires repatterning. Aquarius is down for the challenge. The ingrained patterns of emotional reactivity are the major blockage towards empowerment. Aquarius wakes you up to your power by giving you administrator level access to the programming, to the subconscious.

Let's Get to Work

With the sun in Aquarius, it is the best time to renovate your deepest patterns through conscious empowerment. Be careful with your words and thoughts. Take up a new field of study, hey, maybe it's astrology. Whatever it is, make it counterculture, unusual, outside the box. The consistent expansion of self is the MO of Aquarius.

To fully capitalize on Aquarius, you are going to need a plan. Here is a small exercise that will go a long in building your mental fortitude and spiritual strength.

Emotional Upgrade Practice

At the end of the day, sit down in a calm place with a pen and pad. Take a few deep breaths, feel into your body, take your time. Consider your day, the ups and downs, write down 1 emotionally charged event from the day.

  • What did you feel? Describe the emotion, there are no wrong answers.
  • Can you bring this emotion on again, can you relive the feeling?
  • What kind of thoughts are elicited by this feeling? Write them down. (EG I am weak, I am scared, I am anxious)

  • These are simple examples, you get the point.
    Take at least three of these thoughts, and rewrite them in a positive way. (EG I am stronger every day, I am courageous, I am calm and centered)
    Read these out loud, these are your mantras for the following day.

    I know this sounds simple, and it should be. Reprogramming of the subconscious is not a sprint, but a marathon, complicated practices may actually weaken the psyche too quickly and lead to intense inner awakenings and disturb the flow of your daily life. Try this practice for 7 days, 21 days, or for the rest of Aquarius. It is the thoughts that create the emotional states, and some of these thoughts are running 24-7 in the subconscious, let's shift the core and release outmoded ways of being.

    Enjoy the freedom and expressive quality of Aquarius, I look forward to speaking to you soon.

    Rock on, and happy birthday to my Aquarian brothers and sisters.

    Xx James
