Dear Ottawa friends,

Please come by this Sunday – it’ll be warm inside and lots of fun! Please bring your friends, too! In addition to looking at the year ahead – I’ll have handouts for all of you that can be very interesting and helpful to prepare for the year ahead.

We’ll look at where the Planets will be in 2013, and how they may be directly affecting you – depending on your birthdays!! I’ll be giving you information for Planetary locations for 2013 – and see if they coincide with any of your natal (birth) Planets.

Another handout you’ll receive will let you know where Mercury was when you were born. This will help you appreciate that differences in communication styles are something to take into account with all of your relationships! We’ll also check out the Moon and – depending on the time we have – other Planets as well.

Please rsvp Singing Pebble Books – so we’ll be sure to have seats for you or just come anyway! If you have any questions – feel free to call me.

Keep looking UP!


January 11, 2013 – First New Moon of 2013

NEW MOON in Capricorn, January 11, 2013

Today, we begin this year’s first New Moon – with the Sun and Moon conjunct (next to each other) at approximately 22º Capricorn. This union of Sun and Moon in practical Capricorn stresses that this is an excellent time to launch new projects; to make tangible plans with measureable results – all supported by the energy of diligent, responsible Capricorn.

Emotionally when the Moon is in Capricorn, there’s a tendency to set aside personal concerns for the next few days and move ahead with focussed energy into this New Year, 2013.

We’ve all survived the keyed up expectations of December 21, 2012! A lot did happen during the last few months of 2012 – much of it on inner dimensions – where many people felt that they achieved a higher levels of awareness – with bigger pictures of possibilities for themselves and for humanity.

Now with the first new Moon of the New Year – we can ground this enhanced awareness and focus on bringing practical outcomes to support our deeper sense of well-bring. We can do this – whether it’s the further development of intentional communities, preparing for and learning how to live with less material goodies, investing more time in relationships – by bringing our ideals down to earth.

Venus, Mercury and Pluto All in Capricorn

Yesterday, January 10, Venus moved into Capricorn and is moving quickly into a quixotic relationship with Uranus – where we might find ourselves, for example, suddenly falling in and/or out of love, or suddenly finding that our sense of taste and aesthetics have shifted. We no longer like what we liked a short while ago! And this can also change back rather quickly! Venus will keep moving closer and closer to Pluto in Capricorn and be exactly conjunct January 17. Then we might find ourselves in the non-passionate sign of Capricorn – perhaps getting passionate! We may deepen our current relationships and/or find ourselves being more creative and actually producing tangible products.

Mercury is in the sign of Capricorn from January 1- 20 [and will then enter the sign of Aquarius.] So! With all this energy in Capricorn, let’s use this time to focus and set things up for the entire New Year. It could be that we create a Blog or Facebook page, or that we set our intention to participate in Networking events, or that we make a concerted effort to set new measureable goals for any and all areas in our lives.

Stability Energy to Focus on Clear Intention

Meanwhile, Saturn in the sign of Scorpio, is in harmonious relationship with Mercury, Venus and Pluto, bringing us the stability we need to proceed and focus.

This stable underlying energy pattern is a real gift to us – as the next exact squares between Uranus and Pluto occur later on in the Spring. Uranus is associated with the energies of breakdown and breakthrough – with revolution and evolution. Pluto is associated with foundational issues and systems. This continuing on-and-off series of Uranus-Pluto squares will be complete by Spring 2015. In an energetic way – we’re continuing the energy of Pluto conjunct Uranus that occurred in the mid-60’s – to stand up, for example, for justice, equal rights for men and women, as well as each of us expressing our own authenticity.

For now – let’s begin this New Year with focus and clear intentions. There’s an approach to planning that I love – it begins with me experiencing how it feels to be in my chosen outcome, seeing it, hearing it, feeling it, smelling it. Once I feel aligned with that feeling of actually experiencing my desired outcome, I then look back and ask myself – what were the first steps I took on the journey that got me here? What obstacles did I overcome? What opened up for me that may have been blocked before? I encourage you all to experiment with this approach and let me know how it’s working – or not working – for you.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have and certainly you can share this email with others. I look forward to hearing from you. Keep looking up!!

Happy New Year!
