... Realizations Shift our Concepts and Attitudes into our New Journey .... 

This week, April 15th through 21st, we move into the week with a new attitude and approach to situations.  These new realizations are the result of many changing events, turning the gears as our new attitude was forming. The transition began as Moon moved into Aries late Friday evening, which set up several scenarios to turn the gears. New circumstances emerged on Saturday, as many pieces of information made an entrance that set up Saturday as a major time of revision of thoughts, attitudes and concepts. The revisions are set in motion on Sunday between the early morning Mercury event and the crescendo of a New Moon at 26 Aries in the evening hours, as many new decisions are made. Conclusions and realization about events and situations hoover and hang in our head until the New Moon comes in to move the gears. We hang in the realizations until the New Moon pushes us beyond this mental pause. The realizations point us into making a shift; bringing in a different approach than we had before. All of these events, aspects and realizations set up this week with powerful and activity-filled days.

From the New Moon at 26 Aries at 7 pm PDT / 10 EDT on Sunday, we move into the week to understand the importance of the Venus/Jupiter balance. Venus at 20 Taurus brings in solutions that emphasize value, as Jupiter at 20 Scorpio reviews the elements of motives, ethics and values. The balance occurs as Monday turns into Tuesday in the wee hours. We are able to bring forward the solutions to the status-realization of situations. With Jupiter revealing the key elements of motives and ethics, a deeper perspective is visible.

Tuesday evening, Saturn turns retrograde at 9 Capricorn, prompting us to put a new plan into place, one that is discipline-oriented, as we are the instigator of the plan and the primary participant of the new attitude that is required. Saturn pushes the gears to turn and use the realizations to prompt putting the new plan into action. Mid-week, Sun connects with Uranus, which breaks us free from the restraints of our old attitude. Additionally, Moon shifts into airy Gemini, bringing in the winds of change, which blow in many new options and opportunities. Our new attitude opens the cage doors allowing us to break out of an old outdated perspective, to accept the journey into new avenues.

Thursday evening, Sun shifts into value-oriented Taurus, helping us to make choices aligned with our true values. Issues of self-worth become the focus of the shifts and changes as the True Self becomes aligned in the outer world. With our plan of actions becoming aligned with our values and self-worth, changes begin to be made. On Friday we begin to look at important elements of our sense of security as Moon shifts into Cancer. Our emotional focus becomes integral to walking our new avenues as changes begin to evolve. Saturday continues our focus on emotional security as we validate our new journey.

Universal Year of 2018

2018 is an ELEVEN / TWO universal year which takes the beginning of our new cycle and brings the focus of this New Self into connection with others. We have the choice of paths with the ELEVEN/TWO, which separates the wheat from the chaff. Essentially the ELEVEN brings in the spiritual elements of Divine guidance and utilizing the direction in taking action to move forward. The TWO brings in the connections that keep us stagnant and in old ways, moving through the cycles of non-improvement and non-growth. The inability to move beyond the non-growth circumstances of the TWO becomes the focus throughout 2018, while the opportunity of the ELEVEN becomes the highlight of the year. To take responsibility, through the transparency of action, and embracing accountability is the continual opportunity provided throughout the year. At any time, we can step outside the old cycle and rise up to the ELEVEN.

In 2018, many options will be given to rise up to the ELEVEN to move beyond the “old” to accept a new path. In fact, the ELEVEN is as inherent within the circumstances as is the TWO. The ELEVEN path of moving from Point A to Point B requires ethics of taking responsibility, transparency of motives, and accountability of intentions. The path of non-growth cycles provides the illusion of movement. Yet, these cycles are the typical relationship scenario with one’s self and in our interactions with others; complaining, without taking responsibility to look for or take action to implement change, options and solutions. In short, the difference of the TWO and the ELEVEN is “action” as actions speak our true intentions.
