3 More Days – Preparing for 2014. Astrology Readings – Special Holiday Offerings – December 31, 2013

Greetings!

January 1, 2014 is a momentous way to begin this year. The NEW MOON in Capricorn occurs exactly on Jan 1 – at the same degree as the Sun, Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn – a rare and intense combination. It’s important to take this opportunity to explore our intentions and priorities for the coming year. “Speaking Truth to Power” may be one of the themes setting the tone for 2014.

For many of us – 2013 felt sluggish and it was difficult to move forward. 2014 will be much more dynamic.

As 2014 unfolds, finding balance between seemingly opposite energies will require ingenuity and adaptability. A rare configuration of Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars in a Grand Cross – beginning in January, and on and off – until late June 2014 – carries opportunities to start anew, resolve old issues and think and act outside of the box!

Knowing the timings and where these opportunities are – in what areas of your life – personal, health, financial, work – is valuable. With new insights, you can choose where to best focus your attention this coming year.

Gift an Astrology reading to yourself, family, friends and/or colleagues this Holiday Season!

For many of us – 2013 felt sluggish. It was difficult to move forward. 2014 will be much more dynamic – with a rare Grand Cross appearing – in action-oriented Signs.

FULL MOON in GEMINI – Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Today, the Full Moon in Gemini sets the tone for the next couple of weeks. Gemini stimulates social engagement – filled with curiosity, friendliness and increased communication. During Full Moon the energies can also intensify. In this case – we can feel pulled between attending to many mundane details – and needing to look at the bigger picture to get an overview of our lives, our aspirations, our dreams.

Mercury is still in Sagittarius until December 25 – encouraging straightforward communication and also inviting us to enlarge our perspectives. It’s time to rise above pettiness and focus on what really gives our lives meaning and purpose. Now’s the time to allow our minds to be creative without needing certainty. From the 25th onward and into the New Year, Mercury will move into the sign of Capricorn, helping us pay attention to what needs to be done and when.
Venus continues her journey through Capricorn until early March, 2014. This encourages us to review the importance of our relationships – to deepen our commitments where possible – and to let go of the superficial.

Today, Uranus makes a “station” – indicating the retrograde period is over and tomorrow, Uranus moves ahead again. This time is very significant. Whatever we’ve been creatively thinking about and visioning now can move forward. It’s timely to share your inspiration and intuitive understanding. Get started and be open to collaboration.

The good news is that innovation is on the rise. New inventions are being created all over the world. For example – The Blest Machine, created by Japanese inventor Akinori Ito, produces one litre of oil for every kilogram of plastic waste.

This recycling technology is spreading all over the world. People in Northern Canada, for example, have been using this technology with great results.

Let’s put our creative energies, desires and insights into action. Let’s make 2014 a year where new ways of thinking and creative solutions accelerate our progress – moving toward more sustainable personal lifestyles and more community engagement – while keeping a global perspective.

In 2014 the dynamic “Grand Cross” between 4 major planets – Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto – will occur several times between January and June. Mars in Libra will be opposite Uranus in Aries – highlighting the tension between taking individual action and working as a team. The other side of this Cross involves Jupiter opposite Pluto – which can increase the breakdown of systems. Jupiter can also bring needed optimism into this pattern – with appreciation for what is emerging!

This dynamic affects all of us – in various areas of our lives – depending on where this Cross falls in our birth charts. This major configuration also affects nations, global weather patterns and international affairs. More will be written about this in the New Year.
We’re quickly moving toward Winter Solstice – coming on December 21 – the longest night/shortest day of the year. At this turning, the light welcomes us, as we move into a new seasonal cycle. Many rituals and traditions have been created to welcome the Sun back. The coming of the new light is also a metaphor for igniting clarity, love and compassion to take into the New Year.

PREPARING for 2014: The POWER and VALUE of ASTROLOGY
We all experience “easy” and “difficult” cycles in our lives. Having an Astrology reading is very practical and useful. It helps us plan ahead and guides us along our way.

Astrology helps to clarify the nature of our struggles and the nature of our gifts . What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for each cycle? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others. Astrology helps us remember that the challenges we face are cyclical – and it highlights opportunities where we can learn and grow.

Please contact me with any questions you may have. Feel free to share this email with others.

I look forward to hearing from you!

New Moon in Sagittarius – Monday, December 2, 2013

NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS – Monday, December 2, 2013

The energy begins to lift at 7:22 pm (EST) this evening, as the Moon joins the Sun in the fiery sign of Sagittarius. We’ve experienced a lot of intensity these past few weeks with Mercury and Saturn in Scorpio – turning our energies inward. This new cycle is fueled by the optimistic Sagittarian energy and sets a lively pattern for this Holiday Season. Our energies now shift from inner to outer when we can reap the benefits of new insights.
New Moon
Shifting our Focus – Integrating New Insights

Mercury, Planet of communication, has been in Scorpio for the last 2 months – giving us ample time to journey inwards. Mercury enters Sagittarius on December 6th enlivening our communications and feeding the desire to bring what we’ve learned into the bigger picture. If you’ve been feeling intensely involved in self-exploration and having bouts of self-criticism, Mercury in Sagittarius stimulates a welcome shift.

It’s easier now to be more philosophical and dispassionate. We are more able to appreciate the “bigger picture” of what we have learned and how to integrate these new insights – understanding ourselves from a deeper perspective. Now we can take things less seriously and far less personally. Enjoy this time. Share your joy and gratitude with others. We have plenty to be thankful for.

Showing Appreciation in Tangible Ways

Venus in Capricorn brings a certain seriousness to our relationships. Taking responsibility for personal attitudes and habits is a good use of this energy. Sitting down with your personal and business partners is timely. Listening carefully and expressing concern for others, in tangible ways, will be much appreciated. Spend some time with your partners, family and friends and enjoy something that you may have put off. Find hands-on ways to show caring and attention. Especially now, easing another’s burdens deepens our relationships.

Venus will be spending an unusually long cycle in Capricorn as she’ll go retrograde on Dec 21, 2013 (Winter Solstice) until Feb. 1, 2014. Venus will move out of Capricorn on March 6, 2014 when she enters Aquarius – a great time for creative ideas.

Balancing the Warrior with the Diplomat

Mars finishes its two month journey in Virgo on December 8, 2013 and enters Libra. Mars, ruler of Aries, brings the energy of the warrior, the entrepreneur, the adventurer into Libra, the sign of peace and cooperation. There’s tension between these opposing energies – and a way you can hold both. Libra brings the energy of compromise, collaboration and cooperation. It’s the energy of the mediator, appreciating more than one opinion or point of view. Mars in Libra can feel like a see-saw – moving between the impatience to “get on with the job” and the feeling of “sitting on the fence” swinging back and forth without resolution. There are ways that these energies can work in harmony. Mars is wonderful at taking initiative and Libra is wonderful at appreciating more than one point of view without judgement. Use these Martian energies to initiate group conversations and then lean back and really listen without interrupting. This can bring positive outcomes and fruitful accord.

A Time to Give, A Time to Receive

Jupiter brings beneficial and expansive energies that express themselves uniquely in each Sign. Cancer is the sign of the mother, the nurturer – expanding emotions. During this cycle it’s important to keep balance in relationship with others. If you overdo and exhaust yourself, you can become resentful. It’s important to be a gracious receiver as well as a gracious giver. With the Holiday Season coming up quickly – take time to nurture yourself as well as focussing on others.

Jupiter will be in Cancer until July 17, 2014 when it enters Leo and brings its energy out into the World.

A Year of Healing, Acceptance, Forgiveness

Saturn journeys through Scorpio until December 25, 2014. We’re still in deep learning mode. Depending on Saturn’s relationship with other Planets in your birth chart – there may be challenges to move through that can feel quite burdensome. “This too shall pass” is a good motto now. The opportunity to deepen your healing process is something to be grateful for. It’s a good time to let go of what no longer serves you. Saturn in Scorpio calls upon us to simplify. During this next year – let’s create opportunities to forgive ourselves and others – resulting in healing and acceptance of the past.

From Revolution to Evolution

Uranus is squaring Pluto on and off until March 2015. We’re half-way through this cycle. This configuration opens the door to major transformational opportunities – taking us from revolution to evolution. It may feel chaotic – as outdated systems and institutions move close to collapse. On a physical and environmental scale, weather patterns may be unusually chaotic and extreme. For more information on this square, please see the New Moon (in Libra) newsletter on my website: http://eleanorkibrick.com.
SUMMARY: During this cycle, things are brightening up. It’s a good time to be grateful for all that we have in our lives and all that we can share with others. Giving brings a special kind of joy – especially when in balance with being willing to receive.

Stay tuned for another major shift when Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius on January 12, 2014. Communication and thought processes will be stimulated. Mercury in Aquarius will facilitate our abilities to conceptualize and think “outside the box.”
