~ CENTRAL THEME ~
Independence and Taking the Initiative to Create the Life of your Dreams is our Central Theme for the new and unfolding season, while the Universe wants to know: If not you, then who? Reliance on the government and even your spouse is not getting results; even worse if you are prone to rely on your ex-spouse as a source of sustenance. Before Capitalism and Communism there were family trades, cottage industries, and apprenticeships, and now that public funding of anything has dried up like a mud puddle, grants vanished and government agencies and charities along with them, you are left to rely on yourself and your own intelligence and innovation for survival. So ponder this: the Universe... wants you to be Free. While Red-Orange channels fire energy, you'll be feeling the burn to take up the reins and take responsibility for where the Chariot of your life is heading next. Entrepreneurs, this is your time to shine! Be wary about begging or borrowing (or loaning!) money; most viable business ventures get off the ground just fine without it, and without the troublesome thought of owing money hanging over your head when falling asleep at night. Creativity shines, while Fire-energy dominates home, hearth, work, and relationships: chances of pregnancy are sky-high, sexual appetites ignited, even the possibility of house fires and electrical fires increase, so you'll want to keep your fires somewhat contained, whether literal or figurative. Ponder this: Fire was a gift from the gods, given to mankind to prosper and stay warm... how will you channel your innate fire-energy this season? Self-reliance is favored above dependence on others, as patriarchal government institutions crumble and give way to private, independent ventures. This season, your success and happiness depend entirely on you: what you put into it, is what you get out of it. Creative Fusion means gathering *all* of your life experiences into one, profitable venture: what will yours be?
~ 1ST HOUSE: SELF AND PERSONA ~
A littly spacy, a little spiritual, not quite grounded and not entirely in your physical body, either, Aurora Borealis appearing in the 1st House of Self and Persona means even the least spiritual and those who claim to be Agnostic will reach out to Higher Realms for assistance with what humans simply cannot explain or resolve. Listen closely for talk of Angels and Saints, while a resurgence of interest in a pantheon of man-made deities is inevitable. Conversations will sound strangely channeled and energetically ungrounded: are mental chatter and spiritual visions something to boast about, or not? Compassion in Action is the order of the day, while your treatment of other human beings is also under the Cosmic and Karmic microscope. Are you Compassionate, Complacent, or just plain Confused? This season you'll be wearing your Spiritual Beliefs on your sleeve and Angel-Wings around your neck, returning to prayer as a source of comfort and Compassion as a way of life. Your focus will be on yourself and your relationship with Higher Realms: if you currently don't have one, you will be given reason to. Always remember: there is more to life than meets the eye, and other humans around you have intensely strong connections to Higher Realms which you may not know about. This is a "Walk your Spiritual Talk" season! Charitable acts of all sizes are favored, rest assured, someone will see you as their Guardian Angel and Saving Grace, and will say so.
1st House ruled by ARIES: ARIES, you'll be feeling swept up on wave after wave of spiritual rapture, as your guides and guardian angels knock on the door of your soul. Just be careful not to be swept away by what could be emotions rather than enlightenment...
~ 2ND HOUSE: MONEY AND MATERIAL POSSESSIONS ~
Women Prospering Women is the message of Periwinkle in our collective 2nd House of Money and Material Possessions, as Soul-Sisters gather to share resources, support each other financially and materially, and engage in otherwise communal sharing of material goods necessary for survival. You'll see women supporting women business owners, mothers helping other mothers raise children, material and financial donations of all kinds popping up at women and children-centered charities. On a more personal level, you'll send or receive a suprise care package or two, to or from a female friend or family member who has something very specific on her wish list. Look for women in need to pop up on your Lightworker radar, and being the caring and giving person that you are, you already know you will have the resources to help her. Closed hearts limit prosperity, so stay open... this time to give!
2nd House Ruled by TAURUS: TAURUS, you'll want to prioritize relationships with females in your life this season, especially sisters and soul-sisters. Plan parties, crafty get-togethers, and shopping excursions to express your inner Goddess. Women want to connect with you from all directions... let them in!
~ 3RD HOUSE: COMMUNICATION ~
It's no coincidence that Transformation and Communication rhyme, as Rainbow in the 3rd House means Communication means and methods are due for a collective makeover. Is texting really Communicating? Or just idea-sharing... When was the last time you had a conversation with someone face-to-face, in person? Are you suffering from Communication blocks which inhibit your abiltiy to tell others how you really feel, what you really think, and what your plans are, for fear of backlash or sudden, unexpected change? If yes, then situations, circumstances, and people around you are up for close review, and upon further examination you'll realize who and what needs to change in order that your Communications reach maximum effectiveness. That person in your life who just doesn't listen... needs to go. The old cell phone which delays constantly... needs to be upgraded. Gossip addicts, truth-twisters, bold-faced liars, and digital trolls all face closed doors this season as the Universe says your Communications are either prospering or hindering your progress. Your current methods of Communicaton are either Color-full or Color-less... which are they, and how will you go about transforming them for the better?
3rd House ruled by GEMINI: GEMINI, Rainbow means you're up next for Personal Transformation! Change your hairstyle, your name, perhaps re-design your business card... a few major life changes taking place around you will serve as catalysts to implement changes you've been wanting to make for a long time. Answered Prayers are yours as the Universe paves your path to happiness with Rainbow glitter. Finally... the Universe grants *all* of your wishes in one fell swoop!
~ 4TH HOUSE: HOUSE AND HOME ~
Moonlighting at home? When the cat's away, the mouse will play... what's happening in and around your home when you're not there? Are you under surveillance? Is a member of your household surfing around websites you don't... and should... know about? Perhaps someone is eyeing the purchase of your home space while you're still living there (feeling creeped out yet?). Uncertainty reigns when Moonlight appears, so you'll want to lock your doors and close your windows at night, don't store belongings in vehicles parked out front, and expect the unexpected to circle the perimeter and if you're unlucky, show up on your front doorstep. A knock at the front door sends shivers down your spine, while paranormal energies go bump in the night, and you'll be the one to determine if said ghostly presence is friend or foe. Don't be surprised if your mother, great aunt, or mother moves in with you either physically or energetically (if she is deceased). You'll be hearing from others in your social circle about displaced family matriarchs needing in-home care. Placing a statue of the Divine Mother on your central hearth will calm discordant spiritual energies, while installing cameras near your front door will deter creepers with criminal intentions. Do what you need to do to keep your living space secure, and consider requesting a House Clearing from your favorite healer to further protect the home inside and out. While Moonlight channels the energy of Expansion, you'll also want to be cautious of expanding wasitlines, as usually happens this time of year. Emotional eating = not recommended! Go for a walk around the block instead, at dusk, to the nearby cemetery...
4th House ruled by CANCER: CANCER, you'll be feeling more emotional than usual (imagine that!), while your favorite emotional outlet tends to be eating, be wary of expanding wasitlines as mentioned above. And, wear a bib when necessary, to protect your favorite new clothes from attracting emotional eating stains...
~ 5TH HOUSE: CREATIVITY, CHILDREN, LEISURE ~
Not feeling creatively inspired? Feeling somewhat blah in matters of Love and Luck? Gray means a fog of uncertainty has settled around Creative Ventures but also around creative output, including children and pets. Vacation and lesiure time? Not so much... you might actually spend vacation time at the office rather than at the beach or your favorite mountaintop retreat. No matter, a plethora of relaxing vacation photos will be circulating constantly through your social media newsfeed, so you can *think* you are on vacation when you're really not. Mercury Retrograde's heavy influence until January 8 stalls travel plans especially related to fun and family visits, while cancellations of holiday reservations are inevitable. Mishaps in your children's lives may also be a cause for uncertainty, including mystery illnesses and emotional imbalance in general. Not feeling the urge to create? Not to worry! This time of year is favorable for scaling back on unnecessary activities and expenditures of time, money, and energy, while austerity in all areas of life is favored until the season shifts at the first Equinox. By that time, your creative impulses will have changed completely anyway. When in a fog, slow down, relax, and take life one day at a time.
5th House is ruled by LEO: LEO, you are urged to step back from the spotlight once again, or at least gauge your public appearances carefully to avoid attracting the wrong kind of attention lest you find yourself at the center... of unwanted attention. Be patient. Your time has not yet come.
~ 6TH HOUSE: HEALTH AND HABITS ~
Your Physical Health hinges on your ability to remain Neutral, Walk the Middle Path, and practice Neutrality in situations which do not require your direct involvement. A wrongful termination lawsuit involving a former colleague may require your input, however, you will find yourself standing at the exact mid-point of what is otherwise a hopelessly polarized argument. No need to sweat or stress, no need to internalize others' fears or anxieties. Beige advises that maintaining a position of neutrality in even the slightest disagreement will preserve Balance of Body, Mind, and Spirit. Make Neutrality a daily habit, and use your extra time to rest, relax, and be of service to others rather than engaging in strenuous advocacy for a cause which is not your own. This season, your Health depends on it!
6th House ruled by VIRGO: VIRGO, the most sensitive and child-like of all signs, you will finally learn the value of Neutrality, which means: not taking sides in someone else's battle until you see the Truth of who's who, and what's what. Your innate need to cling to a parental figure for protection and direction is out-moded. If you do choose sides this season, you'll find by the end you chose the wrong side, and afterward will brush the dust off your knees and move forward... alone.
~ 7TH HOUSE: RELATIONSHIPS ~
Prepare, prepare... to encounter an Affair! Olive Green, the Color of Shared Resources and share relationship partners, appearing in our collective house of Relationships and Legalized Partnerships means Fluid Relationship Boundaries are now manifesting everywhere. The dam is breaking, so-to-speak, on outdated Victoria-Era constraints around two-person partnerships, including both personal and professional. Your partner (gasp!) may be having an illicit affair outside the home, your best client may be moonlighting as a client with someone else, and your employer is most definitely courting other possible candidates to fill a position you might be taking for granted. Did you know the most common way to sabotage an impossibly miserable marriage is by having an affair, then letting your partner decide to initiate a legal split? Olive Green encourages you to know and practice your own relationship values in a forthright, truthful manner rather than taking the cheap and easy route of having an affair. For example, if you know you are happiest in relationships with fluid boundaries (polyamory), then seek out partners who value the same. On the contrary, if you know you uphold the virtues and values of monogamy and lifelong commitment, then seek out a partner who values the same. Be very careful when accusing your partner of "cheating" on you, for the finger of blame is connected to the source of the problem. Be prepared for others to challenge you with questions such as: "What did you do or not do, which motivated your partner to cheat on you?" Judgment and narrow-minded thinking of self and others will keep you firmly stuck in old relationship patterns, while others flow along their merry way toward relationship bliss.
7th House is ruled by LIBRA: LIBRA, the Universe blesses you with additional income streams this season, as your natural networking instincts are paying off. Not only are you making more money for yourself, but for others as well! You are back in your flow, and on top of your social networking game. Keep up the good work, the Universe is prospering you.
~ 8TH HOUSE: ENERGY EXCHANGE WITH OTHERS ~
In matters of earned money and financial transactions, fairness, balance, and equal treatment of self and others yields consistently positive results, while you are encouraged to embrace the concept of Propsering the Human Family in all money matters. Difficult for you to embrace this concept of Family, you say? Limited thoughts will continue to yield limited prosperity. Earning, Saving, and Spending Money will look and feel much more Balanced than last season, due to equalization of Global Economic forces rather than your own Money Management skills. Remember, you are part of a larger Global Collective in which you have very little control other than to maintain Balance in your personal life.
In matters of Intimacy and exhange of Sexual Energy, Orange says a family-friendly approach is best, considering every person alive has family connections which are directly or indirectly affected by intimate partnerships, married, open, or otherwise. You'll also notice a renewal of interest in procreation for the purpose of expanding a family, for the joy of adding a new baby to the already bustling brood, and an elevation of Sexual Expression from Animalistic (Root Chakra) to Sacred (Sacral Chakra).
8th House is ruled by SCORPIO: SCORPIO, your Creative Mojo has officially returned! This season you'll be feeling happy, inspired, productive, and prolifically creative as is your energetic nature. You may take up creative pursuits which diverge from what occupied your creative time in the past. Not to worry... ever the Master/Mistress of Transformation, you are not one to allow boredom or sameness to rule your creative life. Family life is also highlighted, including... a surprise pregnancy!
~ 9TH HOUSE: SPIRITUALITY, LEGALITIES, LONG-DISTANCE TRAVEL ~
Spiritual Money. Financial Spirituality. Spirit-Money. Cosmic Bank Accounts. Huh? Yes, indeed. Gold in the 9th House means Money is a hot topic among Spiritualists this season, so to deny the importance of Money in your life is making you look not only outdated, but uneducated; wilfully staying stuck in the darkness of Past Life Poverty Vows. Money is energy, that's the only principle you need to master, for now. Legal matters will revolve around Money, and don't let anyone sway you into thinking otherwise, and Long-Distance Travel yields rewards of all kinds especially if Money is your end goal for planning a trip in the first place. All overseas business ventures yield spectacular financial rewards, so keep the Money flowing with the intention to keep Prosperity growing... globally.
9th House is ruled by SAGITTARIUS: SAGITTARIUS, you lucky duck, you! Golden blessings of prosperity and good fortune are yours, once again! How do... you do it? While money matters may be of concern to you, the Universe and your magnetic energy field are making sure you have what you need, and then some. Sprinkle some cash on your friends and favorite charities, too... luck and money are two things you will never run out of!
~ 10TH HOUSE: CAREER ~
Marketing and Social Networking boost your Career Status, especially if the New Year ushered in a job search for you. Your website not performing, you say? Well it won't if you don't advertise it! Good, old-fashioned Marketing techniques will amp up your Career progress, and after all, if you don't show it, you can't sell it. This includes marketing yourself to potential employers who seek someone with your skills set to take their company success to the next level. Make Networking and talking about yourself a Daily Ritual, and your professional rhythm will return and manifest more consistent growth in your Career track.
10th House is ruled by CAPRICORN: CAPRICORN, also in your natural element this season, Tea appears to affirm your Workaholic nature and let you know, it's o.k. to stay late at the office to get the job done. Marketing and Networking are favored, especially to increase your already extensive client base.
~ 11TH HOUSE: COMMUNITY, GROUPS, FRIENDSHIPS ~
11th House is ruled by AQUARIUS: AQUARIUS, also in your natural element this season, you may be wondering why everyone around you is having trouble coping with global shifts, meanwhile you are coasting along nicely enjoying victory after victory, celebration after celebration, and milestone moment after moment. Sky Blue means this season will be Communication-intensive for you, but when it is not? You'll have a big announcement to make after the turn of the year, right around Valentine's Day. As always, make it memorable with your characteristic flourish of class and tact.
~ 12TH HOUSE: SUBCONSCIOUS AND HIDDEN INFLUENCES ~
Crime. Crime? CRIME! Yes dear Lightworker, Indigo Blue appearing in the collective 12th House means you'll be seeing visions of Crime on your intuitive radar screen, including premonitions of crimes before they happen. To some of us, this is nothing new, as we see visions of crimes all the time before they happen. While some lower-level "tabloid psychics" are wasting their precious intuitive gifts snooping around in people's sex lives, the more advanced are applying their psychic gifts to not only change the world, but save it from violence and dark intentions. Dust off your Law books and read up on what truly constitutes crime. Then, realize a child in your neighborhood may be a victim of repeated abuse which goes unseen by the outside world. Can you be a Psychic Crime-fighter, and actually stop a violent crime before it happens? If you're brave enough, bold enough, and prove to the Universe that you are well-equipped and knowledgeable about the Criminal Justice System to handle the information properly. Can you detect the presence of a bomb or firearm without needing a metal detector? Only the best of us will be chosen to serve in the ranks of Psychic Police... the rest will remain mere entertainers.
12th House is ruled by PISCES: PISCES, along with your Scorpio siblings, you are now officially a member of the Psychic Police! Not a Detective (that's Scorpio's title), but an Undercover Detective, with magical, mysterious powers of Intuitive Investigation to get the bottom of some very strange happenings which have been happening around you. We know you are the most Intuitive of all 12 signs, but the question is: What will you do with the information you have gathered? Be a crime-fighter, or continue to be part of the problem... it's up to you Pisces, we hope you make the right choice!
