Illuminating your Divine Journey through Numerology and Astrology

... Expanding connections with others who share aspirations ...

This week, January 15th through January 21st, begins as Moon shifts into Virgo to create a balance with Pisces. Virgo’s commitment to right action creates a balance with Neptune and Venus as they are both in Pisces. This balance harmonizes with the spiritual blueprints that are adjusting and evolving between the current time and the New Moon and Chinese New Year.

On Wednesday, Moon connects with Jupiter in Libra, emphasizing the positive connections with people as the Uranus winds blow in different people that are part of our new journey. Expanding our connections with others is a major theme this year, while Jupiter is in Libra, but especially as the balance to the Uranus winds brings change in our relationships with others.

Thursday Sun shifts into Aquarius, and brings in the air sign qualities that provide that invisible connection to humanity with the shared mental knowledge, communications and aspirations. Sun spotlights these emerging connections and will bring them into the celebration of the New Moon and Chinese New Year, which is accentuated at 8 Aquarius. Mercury will follow suit to communicate more of these shared connections once Mercury moves into Aquarius on February 7th. Mercury will spend time catching up to the Sun’s spotlights all during February.

Inching toward the New Moon and Chinese New Year, we will continue to journey the pathway that is emerging. The Year of the Fire Rooster brings a strong desire for progress, honing new goals and desire for achievement and happiness. As 2017 is a universal ONE year, personal effort plays a major role in achievement of goals and happiness. Expanding personal qualities of happiness and expression become the rooster call at sunrise, setting the pace for the year.  

*The nine-year cycle is created by the numerology of the YEAR, as 2017 is 2 + 0 + 1 + 7, which = 10, 1 + 0 (of the 10) = 1.  In numerology, you add the digits together until you have just one digit.  Each digit has meaning, purpose and qualities associated with the number.  So the last nine-year cycle began in 2008 (which was the last ONE year) and completed the nine-year cycle as 2016 was a NINE year.  Numerology has a nine-year cycle and provides a great deal of information about situations that begins with the current the ONE universal year of 2017 and completes in the NINE universal year of 2025.

This week, April 26th through May 2nd, begins with Moon connecting to Jupiter in Leo, expanding the bold, dynamic events that are emerging to move you forward.  The promise thacomes with Jupiter’s connection with Leo provides the expansion of the creative energy and the doors that open because of thebold actions that are taken when it is easier to just not participate.  Leo provides the leadershipvV emphasis that comes with the ability to take action and move in a particular direction without outer guidance.  

On Thursday Mercury shifts into Gemini, which means that Mercury is more than 20 degrees ahead ofhe Sun and has moved into a different sign than the Sun, which creates the feeling that situations are disjointed.  Mercury flying into Gemini brings in more communication, information and spontaneous events.  The situations thatbegin to occur feel that the logic and methodology are missing and decisions have become a bit more chaotic.  The Sun doesn’t move into Gemini to join Mercury until May 21st.  This becomes increasingly challenging because airy Gemini creates many thoughts and ideas that begin to fly around, yet lack a solid place to land.  

Preparing to review ideas that seem to fly through situations sets the stage for the Mercury retrograde that is coming up on May 18th as Mercury reaches 13 Gemini.  Turning retrograde to allow the sun to catch up is welcomed as Sun once in Gemini, joining Mercury, can begin to shine the light onto important decisions to create a new pathway forward.  As we begin to feel disjointed with Mercury shifting into Gemini at the end of April, we are also getting ready to shift into the month of May on Friday.  May is universally a FOUR month, which requires additional effort to maintain the pace that is activated by Mercury in Gemini.  

Mercury will continue to fly around, tossing ideas and concepts into the already chaotic airwaves.  By maintaining the ability to act and not react, there will be more ease about the situations that seem to become the wind that blows one way and then another.  Flexibility is key as is knowing many decisions made will be changed or revised later down the road.
