Capricorn is a big focus now, and has been for some time, especially since Mercury went retrograde a few weeks ago, emphasizing the importance of purging and preparing to make a change in our goals and direction in our lives.

Last week we had the Full Moon in Cancer, that brought more emphasis to the juxtapositions of the Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, the Sun as well as Pluto in a Grand Square a.k.a. a Grand Cardinal Cross. Now Mercury is direct in Capricorn for the next few weeks bringing our attention back to recognizing how our thoughts and decisions lead to practical changes in our lives and affect world around us.

Of course, as we know a big change is happening this week politically, but I won’t be talking too much about politics this week. Over the past few months I’ve talked a lot about politics and power, the media, truth and information, censorship and propaganda with Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus at odds. This week will undoubtedly be quite crazy and intense with the news especially since Mercury is in Capricorn. Ego’s will be on full display and disagreements will be on the rise. Surprises are sure to intensify and will significantly affect how people think about the world.

Mercury in Capricorn brings more emphasis to how communications will be full steam ahead in the realm of politics and media. Words and headlines will have a big impact now. Gossip can be well over the top and sensationalist.

But what I think is more important to talk about now is an extension of the Full Moon last week that reminded us of the importance of nurturing our bodies and taking care of ourselves to counter the complexities of life.

Mercury in Capricorn, brings our attention to the physical realm, and what is more important than our own bodies?

We’re in the information age and it’s clear that people are addicted to information via phones, computers, televisions... Too often our minds are distracted by so many options; so many things to think about.

So many things pull our minds in different directions, and we get so busy going after our goals, fulfilling our obligations, doing our jobs, making money, chasing after careers, paying the bills… I’ve seen so many people that are on autopilot and running all over the place to get things done, that they lose touch, and get disconnected from their essential self. We forget how important it is to bring our minds back in touch with the earth, with our bodies, with our physical world.

Mercury in Capricorn reminds us that our goals and ambitions should not block us from being present in our physical selves. It's essential to get back in touch with our bodies, to bring the mind back down to earth. It's an important time to look at what it is that our thoughts are leading us to do in life and thus what we are manifesting.

Life is about choices, but too often we put up roadblocks that get in our way of living the life we want, by making choices that impact our future in ways we didn’t realize they would.

Of course, people often learn best through experience and from mistakes, but sometimes (or often times) our choices put us in predicaments that end up using up a lot of our time, energy and take up too much space in our mind.

Time is too short to waste and flies by. If you want to manifest the experiences you want in life, getting clearer on using your time well is essential.

At this time, it is highly recommended that you get back in touch with your body and your well being, by breathing and being present. Bring your mind back to this moment and release all those complicated thoughts that run through your mind. Just breathe, stretch, feel your body in this moment so you can become grounded and centered in your mind and body.

Pay attention to where you are sore in your body. Often our minds have us so distracted that we neglect simple things like good posture and good ergonomics while working. So many of us are in offices, sitting in front of a computer all day, caught up in what our mental space, that we disconnect from being consciously present in the physical world.

Our bodies suffer when our minds are so far off in another place. It’s common to be so deep in concentration, that we may actually hold our breath without realizing it. This is how tension builds in the body, leading to soreness and discomfort. Your body will tell you how your mind is working. It’s essential to take the time to bring the mind back to the body.

I highly recommend self care this week. As the Full Moon winds down, it’s good to bring that aspect of nurturance back into your life gently. Perhaps spend 15 minutes sitting on a yoga mat moving, breathing and stretching to connect with your body. Maybe get a massage, and let your mind come back down to earth. Or visit an outdoor nordic spa to connect with the elements. Where does your mind take you as you get more in touch with the present moment and your body? Pause and reflect.

It's a great time to focus on food as well. Integrating the Full Moon in Cancer is meant to bring you in touch with your inner security and well being. Food that is nutritious, enjoyable to prepare, that supports a healthy body and makes you feel good is important. A home cooked meal does so much more for you than fast food, including giving you the chance to get grounded, slow down and enjoy getting connected to the preparation and enjoyment of what sustains your life.

Think of motherly love when you connect with representations of the earth element around you this week. Pay attention to the stones, rocks and mountains, to plants, trees, fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and seeds that grow in abundance on mother earth, It is a magical place to bring your attention. Grounding the mind feels comforting and relaxing.

The sky suggests that taking care of your home space in a way that helps you feel settled and collected is recommended this week. Taking care of your comforts will do you well.

With family and those closest, this is a good time to put things in better perspective and integrate the lessons. Life is short.

The Grand Cardinal Cross has emphasized a crossroads, I spoke of last week, where we need to make choices that are better for our well being and that support who we are, our goals, and living true to our potential in life. Where in your life are you where you know you need to make a change? This is the time for transformation.

Mercury is going to be going forward through Capricorn over the next couple of weeks and will meet with Pluto soon. In order to achieve better in our lives, to manifest and reach goals that matter, we need to change our thinking and become more grounded in reality.

Whether you need to improve your confidence, or you need to get yourself better organized, or you need to learn more about how to operate a business so you can intelligently create your success, take some time this week to define ways to get your mind in gear. A mind grounded in practicalities will do you best.

Defining your future goals this week is recommended. 2017 has just begun, this is the time to set yourself up for success. Make a plan. There will be ups and downs, but by giving yourself something to look forward to will take you that much closer to achieving what you want. Think about how to take practical steps to making the most of the time you’ve been given.

What's Happening this Week?

Sunday, January 15, 2017

On Sunday, the Moon is in Virgo, another sign that signifies a connection of the mind and body.

The Moon in Virgo connects with Mercury in fellow earth sign Capricorn today. This is the day to get started on bringing your mind down to earth. Get out of your head a bit, and get back down to the roots of life.

Working with your hands and being practical, such as taking care of plants, or organizing your office space is recommended. It is time that is your greatest gift. Make sure you use some of it to focus on your health and well being. Spending time stretching or preparing healthy food is an excellent way to enjoy the day.

The Moon is also in connection with Neptune and Venus today. This is a great time to close your eyes and get into a meditative state, breathing and connecting with your body. A shower, or bath with essential oils would certainly do you wonders. Having care and compassion for yourself, and letting go of the inner critic so you can just be present is good for your health and well being.

Monday, January 16, 2017

On Monday, our practice of bringing our minds down to earth and connecting with our body can show signs of letting go of tension and worry that we may have held onto for too long.

This is a great day for a massage. When I was studying massage therapy to become a Registered Massage Therapist, it was commonly said that massage is meditation for dummies. Having your trigger points, or pressure points, worked on to release tension that has been building up over time is heavenly. Being able to just be present and let go so the tension can melt away is wonderful.

We each hold tension in our body due to stress in different ways.

Pains will likely become more evident as you become more conscious of how your body feels. A good way to release tension is to intentionally tense up. The act of tensing up by flexing muscles in your body, such as your shoulders, then releasing the tension, makes you aware of where you’ve held the tension for a long time, helping you to release further. For some it is in their low back, others their shoulders, and others it may be your neck or jaw. If you’ve got a bit of a belly, you may subconsciously hold your gut in, building tension over time. Letting go and being accepting of a Buddha belly with deep breathing is a good thing.

Releasing stress is also important for good heart health. Stretching for good posture and a healthy back is recommended. Do a few yoga asanas and note the difference in just a few moments.

If you feel there is tension in your body, be gentle as you move through it and explore it. Don’t overdo it by pushing yourself too far. Tension you’ve held for a long time will take time to release. Enjoy the process.

If you encounter anything that angers you or makes you sad today, remember to get back in touch with your body to help you feel grounded.

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

On Tuesday, the Sun in Capricorn and the Moon in Virgo connect very early in the morning.

Being connected to your body, your health and well being can inspire new goals and a plan. Getting enough sleep will help you be at your best today.

For those that don’t feel the need for so much rest, working on business plans, goals and having an eye on achieving practical aims could bring great ideas in the early morning hours.

The Moon enters Libra today at 6:16 am EST and then later is in conflict with Mercury. The media is likely to bring up big talking points that have many people in disbelief and lacking in trust. The truth will seem hard to find today as stories only escalate into gossip and spin. Headlines don’t tell the whole story but are usually well crafted to direct what the public thinks and believes. Politics will be intensifying today. This is not a good time to be caught in a lie, especially for those in power.

People will definitely be checking facts and looking for answers in a variety of places, weighing the truth with various sources. But so much chatter and ridiculousness could end up driving people crazy, and turning off the news may be the only solution to feel balanced. With the immaturity and ego battles we see in the media and politics, it can be better for your mind and well being to tune out and focus on your own goals in life.

Business today could feel too distracting from your well being. Mistakes of measure, legal issues and communications may need you to step away to find sanity and to get grounded. Remember to get in touch with your body this week. Practices in stretching, breathing and good posture are highly recommended to become centered today.

Mercury connects nicely with the North Node in Virgo today. This is great for getting yourself in gear, getting organized and taking care of your health and well being. Do you feel like you're on track to setting yourself up for success so you can achieve your goals? This is the day to get on track.

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

The Moon is not in good position to Pluto today and also has it’s ups and downs with Uranus.

Letting go of something could be emotionally challenging. This isn’t a good day to decide to let go of a long standing agreement or to close a business, but it may have to happen.

A kerfuffle could lead to legal issues if there is a lack of restraint. Disagreements with a superior, or someone that has the upper hand, especially in business, should be avoided. Try not to get in over your head or let your emotions or your ego lead you toward drastic changes that have potent, long term consequences.

Trustworthiness could be a strong issue. Untruths about someone’s character can lead to big problems. Since the media spin plays a strong role in painting identities and circumstances, to be fair, and unbiased, it is responsible as a viewer to wonder, “Is this really true?”

*Remember to come back later in the week for your reminders. 

Thursday, January 19, 2017

What actions are you taking that are aligned with what you believe is your higher purpose in life? How are your actions affecting your karma and getting you closer to the reality you want?

The Moon connects with Jupiter and Saturn today. What excites you? How do you feel when you are in tune with the bigger vision you have for your life. Tune into that kind of feeling today.

Mars and Saturn are at odds today as well. Do you have obstacles from reaching your biggest wishes? Do you feel like you have enough time to go for what you believe you’re meant to do in life?

If you ‘ve been wishing and hoping for better, but aren’t taking the practical action to make the dreams a reality, you’re not going to get that far in the physical world. Your dreams might be wonderful but to manifest them you’ve got to bring them down to earth.

Today you could be reminded of how you’re not taking the right aim. You may be putting too much of your time and effort in a direction that keeps your wheels spinning in one spot. It’s important to become clearer about what you believe would be best for you to do so that you are more consciously engaged in using your time more meaningfully and productively.

We're also reminded that actions have real-world consequences and also affect your karma.

If you've been vague in your activities, and living more in dreamland, you could get a reality check pushing you to take concrete action for better results. Make sure your actions are tied to good karmic intentions.

If you feel held back or restricted from reaching that higher aim, this is the day to work on overcoming the hurdles in your way so you can get closer to what you want to achieve.

You may be putting hurdles in your own way by being distracted and using your time in inefficient ways that just keeps you held back. Prioritize your time.

Travelers may find traveling, particularly flying, brings up impatience and tempers more easily now.

Also note that secrets that come out in the open now are likely to have some serious consequences. Getting caught red-handed is quite possible.

The Sun enters Aquarius on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 4:24 am EST. This brings us into a cycle of thinking about the future and the bigger wishes we would like to fulfill in our journey in life.

Wouldn’t you love to feel as free as a bird, soaring high, able to choose to take yourself in any direction you’d like? Talk to friends and acquaintances in your social circle about ways to make your life feel more free.

This is a great time to come up with new, innovative solutions to changing your life for the better. Transformation will take effort, but your big ideas will get the ball rolling.

This will be a good month for entrepreneurs to socialize and learn new information to help initiate new actions.

The Moon enters Scorpio today at 5:09 pm EST taking us through the weekend. How you feel about power and passion will become more obvious. Gut instincts will come in handy over the next couple of days.

Friday, January 20, 2017

On Friday, the Moon is positively connected to Mercury and Neptune. Venus in Pisces connects with Pluto in Capricorn today too.

Love is the way to a better future. Love is an essential part of life and as we discover how to be more loving, kind, generous and compassionate, we evolve into more conscious people.

Music, poetry, meditation, visualization, all those receptive, magical aspects of life we can tap into can be especially moving now. Love transforms our experience of life.

This is a great time to work with the chakras, from the root chakra right up to the crown, and the heart in the middle, exploring the subtle, energetic energies and sensations in your body can take you into a more spiritualized experience of life.

Bringing your mind down into the physical world while also bringing your mind into more philosophical approach to living can be enlightening.

When you see life from a more philosophical, spiritual and abundant perspective you can more easily understand your higher calling and purpose. Be of service from the heart and you will evolve. Loving kindness can change everything.

Right now we have Neptune, Venus, Mars and Chiron in Pisces. This signifies the importance of taking action, as well as being receptive to heal and evolve through a more spiritualized way of life.

Setting goals to be more in tune with your spirit has great power to transform you now.

Female empowerment and feminine ideals can lead to important changes.

It’s an excellent time to burn white sage, cedar leaves, or other natural, smudges to purify and cleanse the energy in your environment. A foot massage can take you to heaven.

Saturday, January 21, 2017

Saturday is a day to get your mind and emotions thinking positively. There can be so much negativity in the world, in the news, but you can choose to focus on elevating yourself.

Focus on your own karma and how you can take actions that make the world around you better. Be the example. To change the world around you, you need to change yourself first. Self love, devotion to a higher calling and taking action will set you up for a more positive psychology. When you’ve got faith, you can move mountains.

Secrets have the power to make dramatic changes today that can give us a whole other perspective. What’s hidden and going on behind the scenes can come out in the open to be cleared away.

I'm all ears. Do you have anything you'd like to share with me this week? Let me know here.
