Mercury stations direct early tomorrow in the a.m. (2:21) in the sign of Sagittarius.  If you have been one of those long distance travelers you may have encountered Mercury Retrograde directly.  As is always suggested during Mercury Retro times, it is best to expect delays when traveling.  Sagitarrius rules over long distance and international travel.  Cooling your heals in London's Heathrow airport was the fate of many, canceled airline fights, snow filled roads and mudslides to the West.

The next two or three days can be extra "ditzy" when the little bugger is getting ready to move forward again.  But, the silver lining is that Mercury often brings new information up to the surface...things that we just "didn't know" beforehand which in turn, helps us to better understand certain situations in our lives - the "truth" can come out during this time period.  CHECK OUT MY BLOG TO SEE WHERE MERCURY RETRO'D FOR YOUR SIGN - Week of December 10th.

We are also in between an Eclipse pattern.  The Moon is waning, never a great time for new starts and Mercury's slow movement forward is adding to the "holding pattern."  In other words, allow yourself the prudence and time for new actions/initiatives after the January 4th Solar Eclipse.  So, if it ain't broke...don't fix it.  Allow for extra time when commuting and careful with your email and FM messages as there is more room for misunderstandings....k?  Got it?

You may also start to "really" understand some things that eluded you before...retracing our steps can be very, very useful.  Love - Jean

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse - December 21st at 3:14 EST

MONDAY - Mercury is squaring Uranus your senses may feel over stimulated today - is it real or is it memorex? Mental over stimulation may be the feel of the day and Mercury in retrograde may not be adding to clarity of perception.  If you're feeling scatter brained ponder the idea that sometimes the soup of ideas and thoughts need to be stirred up (while feeling confused) in order to let new possibilities come to light.

Over the next two days expect information to come to the fore that affects how you are feeling.  This Eclipse is at the last degree of Gemini (ruled by Mercury) so there is a sense of completion surrounding this Eclipse.  There is something in your life that NEEDS to change, no doubt about it and it WILL but don't rush to final decisions or conclusions quite yet.  There is an unfolding taking place and like good wine should not be rushed.

PLENTY of change will be ushered in in the first few months of 2011 and this Eclipse is part of the process...to bring us more information and solutions but the time to act may not present itself until next year.  Coagulate and ponder in the interim.  Emotions may be strong today and tomorrow so please indulge in some high levels of self-care and love, no need to push the river...just BE.  Use this time to focus on the best possible feelings for yourself and others - I call it positive segmenting (I'm sure I read that term somewhere but given the vast amount of information I've studied in the past 25 years I've assumed it as my own). 

Positive Segmenting is about staying in the "feelings" of what you want to experience...not an intellectual exercise but rather a FEELING playfulness of daydreaming.  Daydreaming is a very useful function when you are creating your experiences - children are masters of it and adults tend to be socialized "out" of it. 

Please practice patience with yourself and others....not a time to push, push, push but to engage in human "beingness."

Week Beginning Friday, December 18th

Holiday ASTRO Gift Certificates are still available through December 31st

I'll be taking a break Christmas week but will have January's Video Scopes up the following week.  Safe travels and please be kind to your fellow journeymen and women.  Cheers!

As we wind down these final weeks of 2010 my thoughts turn to the immense change awaiting us in 2011..are you breathing a sigh of relief?  I am.  A year of backtracking, wading through the mire, learning the art of patience, and deepening our understanding of ourselves and the precocious world around us.  We are collectively finishing up some long term cycles next year - Uranus moves into Aries in March for a 7 year stay, Neptune and Chiron embark upon (tentatively at first) a move from Aquarius into Pisces.

The big news for 2011 will be the Uranus square Pluto from Aries to Capricorn.  We have already been experiencing "tastes" of this combination.  This cycle represents the breaking down of structures - political, financial, and organizationally.   That which we have deemed a permanent fixture in life is set to be redefined in order to establish a stronger and improved version.  But, the erosion and breaking down of said entities is the first order of business.  Like the shoring of a house, things break down and get messy before a clean-up and stronger foundation can be built.  Wiki Leaks is a prime example of messy bureaucratic breakdowns showing a disparaging contrast between what power brokers communicate to it's public's and it's actual agenda.  At this writing circuitous legal paths will likely be blocked by the same insurmountable obstacle:  the First Amendment.  Governments and corporations can either tighten their security practices or aspire to a level of transparency where there is no corruption and law breaking to hide! 

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falls on the 21st of December at the last degree of Gemini...a time when copious amounts of information may be flowing and the ability to sift through what is important as well as relevant may require some extra focus.  Mercury shifts back into Sagittarius on the 18th a day of flowing social interaction and sudden surprises.  The 19th adds to the intellectual and travel theme with Mercury conjunct the Sun - double check your travel plans and go with the flow.

Christmas day shows an easy energy during the afternoon hours but please don't equate gifts received with personal value.  The Moon shifts from Leo into analytical Virgo.  New Year's eve has an upbeat buoyant energy with the Moon moving into Sagittarius at 8:22 p.m. EST.  

ARIES:  How you think, process information, communicate to others in your immediate environment and travel from point A to B are all areas affected by the Lunar Eclipse.  A feeling of "lack" may be evident and needed changes will be flowing your way over the next few months.  You are on the precipice of a very exciting 2011.  Mars continues to motivate your goals in career and community visibility.

TAURUS:  Earned income, your value systems and self-esteem are areas the Lunar Eclipse will be magnifying.  Anticipate changes and enhancements to these areas into 2011...something may disappear and be released in order to be replaced with something more relevant to your current needs.  Venus continues through your partnership house into January - sweet!.

GEMINI:  Your personal identity and health are being reviewed and revised during this Eclipse season.  The next 18 months portend a time of self-reinvention.  Your energy and health may not be strong now, rest and nurture self as much as possible this month.  How you perceive your environment influences your interaction style.  Partnership dynamics will be very different for you into 2012...a time of shifting in how you interact with others.  Work and day to day habits continue to bring sweet and supportive energy.  Mercury is retrograde till the 30th - try to keep your schedule on the lighter side.

CANCER:  You may find yourself in the role of caretaker this month or perhaps it is you who needs some extra rest and rejuvenation.  The Eclipse affects the axis of your chart affecting health, rest, the need to care for another, and work demands.  Build in extra time around the days of the 21st to engage in some "me" time as others may be needing you too!    Partnerships continue to be demanding but take refuge in the love pouring forth from both friends and your children.

LEO:  Children may be the catalyst for surprises and changes in planning this holiday season.  Friends and lovers may also require a deeper level of emotional understanding from you Lion.  Keep your roar to a minimum and slip into the state of a philosopher....this too shall pass.  This is a long term trend of redefining your relationships with others, and cultivating your personal levels of joy and creativity.  You may create a masterpiece of some sort in the next year and a half resulting in you experiencing a level of passion that's been missing for years.  Home continues to be your haven of peace and joy.

VIRGO:  Home, career direction, your parents, where and "how" you live and emotional security are the areas the Lunar Eclipse is setting her sights upon over the next 18 months.  Home and family needs may require some flexibility on and around the 21st.  Home fixtures may require some repair, an unexpected guest or family member may pop up or conversely a holiday guest may not be able to attend the festivities!  Confidence continues with your creative endeavors and Venus is still blessing your communications.  Continue to be flexible with the schedule with your ruler Mercury still in retrograde motion.

LIBRA:  Travel may be a bugga boo around Eclipse time....take your time, get your car serviced and plan for delays and the unexpected.  The long term vibrations of the next several months will affect your levels of communication and by this summer you may find you are traveling more frequently as well - probably work related.  Publishing projects may come to the fore as can teaching and speaking activity.  Your view of the world around you is changing and broadening.  Earned income is still blessed with your ruler Venus transiting your 2nd house.  Partnerships both of the personal and business kind will take up more of your energy and focus in 2011.

SCORPIO:  Money you earn, commissions, venture capital, loans, taxes, and business contracts come into frame over the next several months.  The Eclipse "may" bring a feeling of lack in one or two of these areas but please know changes will continue to evolve into 2011.  Venus "should" be infusing you with a feeling of well-being, attractiveness and attraction, and people who seem to be more willing to help you out.  Next year shows expansion and the need for flexibility in the areas of work and health.  A happy addition may come in the form of a furry friend by this spring.

SAGITTARIUS:  Areas of change are falling in your partnership axis Archer.  You may find a relationship on it's way out around Eclipse time but this is a far reaching influence designed to change and refine how you "do" relationships and engage in relating.  Who we are is directly related to who we attract, and changes are afoot.  The Sun's transit of your sign is strengthening your sense of self, and Uranus and Jupiter will be taking up residence in the area of love affairs and creativity beginning the first quarter of 2011.  Expect these areas to be a focus of growth and learning for you well into 2011.  

CAPRICORN:  Energetic, decisive and assertive can all be descriptors of you in the past few weeks.  Yet, the Eclipse seems to signal the need for some rest and downtime.  You may be called upon to be of service to someone who needs your care and support around the Eclipse.  Work may feel like a resentful taskmaster pushing and pulling your responsibilities between self and others.  Friends continue to provide a glowing light of support and pleasure.

AQUARIUS:  Friendships, creative projects, groups, alliances and the affairs of your children are areas of change and growth over the next several months.  The Eclipse sets off a new trend that may find some friendships and romantic liaisons heading south and out the door.  But, the Water Bearer has the gift of detachment and objectivity when facing changing circumstances.  What is leaving now will be replaced by projects and people that more aptly reflect who you are becoming - trust that.  Training, classes, technology and communication projects are on tap for you in 2011.

PISCES:  Circumstances surrounding your family roots, home, career direction and role within your community is changing in the long term.  What changes and leaves your life around Eclipse time will be well rewarded as you move into 2011.  Something needs to change in order for you to build on your developing emotional resources.  Friends continue to play an active role in your life and Jupiter is upping the ante on new and exciting opportunities before he leaves your sign in January.  Embrace the good.

Week Beginning Friday, December 10th

ASTROLOGY SERVICES / HOLIDAY Gift Certificates                                                                                                                                We are entering a complex few weeks - Mercury the planet of communications, technology, travel and commerce is heading south for the remainder of the month (think mid-January actually).  The information you receive over the next few weeks may not be entirely accurate, people may believe they have all the facts but it's just not so.   On top of that we are entering Eclipse season beginning on the 21st although we often start feeling these potent energies earlier.

Spend less, travel less and focus on what you TRULY want to do.  Do what you can to de-stress this month.   Focus on what YOU want  - what is comforting and nurturing to you?  Too much accommodation to others will leave you resentful and irritated.  Take it EASY this month.  People tend to get a little more introspective during Mercury retrogrades so take the time to align with your authentic feelings and needs.

The 13th and 14th are sharp, insightful and in some cases ruthless with both Mars and Mercury conjuncting Pluto in Capricorn.  If there are things bubbling below the surface look to this time period for eruptions.  A powerful time for problem solving and connecting with transformative energies as long as it's not projected onto others.

ARIES:   Work, travel, promotions and marketing are the focus of Mercury's retrograde motion.  Please don't launch any new marketing campaigns this month as they will fall lifelessly on non-responsive ears.  A productive time to PLAN your sales and marketing objective for 2011.  Travel could be an exercise in patience so schedule in extra time and back-up plans.

TAURUS:  Mercury influences the areas in your life regarding shared income, financial agreements, travel, your philosophies of life, and personal situations/emotions that are no longer relevant.  It will take some time to come to sure-footed conclusions so take your time.  Traveling can bring a snafu or two so don't expend the energy on anger and frustration....something cool may transpire on that unplanned "lay over."

GEMINI:  You know the routine twins - scale back on your expectations when your ruling planet Mercury settles in for a 3 week nap.  Significant others from your past may re-appear and there appears to be some closure and learning with all of your important interactions.  Loans, commissions and taxes may require you to take a unblinking and extremely pragmatic route into the future.

CANCER:  Money and financial arrangements may come up for review on Monday and Tuesday.  There is some intensity around this so be very clear about your worth and what you need to feel like a valued player in the game of life.  If others appear to be "strong-arming" you in an unnecessary fashion try not to descend to a level of response that you will most definitely regret later.  Keep all dealings above board and respectful.

LEO:  On the job communications and power plays may leave you scratching your head.  On the other hand, YOU may be the person applying the pressure and demands.  Issues of money, power or both?  This Mercury retro period sees you pondering the value of work, love, your children's welfare and creative projects.

VIRGO:  Children fly back to the nest this month, love affairs slow down and you also need some downtime lounging and working at home.  Increase your communications with family members and give them your ear.  Some sort of intense demanding energy on Monday/Tuesday finds you diving below the superficial to better "understand" the implications.  

LIBRA:  Matters with family members, appliances in the home, and various and asundry communication functionality may be troublesome over the next few weeks.  Slow it down Lib and keep your calender on the light side.  There are more details to be gathered for the month of  January so take you time and be as thorough as possible.  

SCORPIO:  Powerful communication is on your agenda Monday and Tuesday, but, you may not know that yet.  You have the intellectual powers this week to get to the bottom of any problems that may be troubling you.  Expect some laser like insights both from yourself and others.  Car mechanics, travel glitches, and writing snafus may visit you during this retrograde period - you are in an information gathering mode.

SAGITTARIUS:  Earned income and issue of self-worth may come up for your review on Monday and Tuesday.  Anger and frustration can be motivating forces when harnessed in a focused and ethical manner.  Sometimes we need a little ire to get us going.  Don't plan on any real headway to be made until mid-January as this is a planning stage.  The Sun is still in your sign providing plenty of energy and impetus.

CAPRICORN:  Expect to be the unwittingly receiver and deliverer of faulty information.  Not your true intentions just the fodder of a retrograding Mercury.  January is really the time to make informed decisions, and with the sun transiting your sign in the New Year you'll have a much better picture of how best to proceed.  Please restrain yourself from power skirmishes on Monday and Tuesday.  Point your laser focused intellect on higher minded endeavors.

AQUARIUS:  Some uncomfortable rumblings are taking place in the area of life that deals with things hidden from view.  Your dreams may also reveal some obscured truths.  Pay attention to them, especially on Monday and Tuesday when the planets of ego and intellect conjunct the "plummet the depths" planet Pluto.  Friendships remain a source of attention and activity - your future goals too.

PISCES:  Friendships, your life goals and group associations may confuse you over the next few weeks.  This is not the time to try to unravel all of the information flowing your way....the way forward will become clear in the New Year.  For now, you've got plenty to keep you busy with the Sun transiting your house of Career and Community Visibility.

John Lennon...a peek inside the man

Today is the 30th anniversary of Lennon's death.  He was born on October 9, 1940 in Liverpool.

Aries Rising shows a man comfortable in asserting himself and his viewpoint - an energetic man often on the go.  His SUN, MARS and North Node are all in LIBRA in the 6th house of work and day to day living showing a person with strong intellectual prowess and the ability to articulate his views of equality and the need for balance in life.  His Mercury in SCORPIO placed in the house of others (as well as enemies) further deepens his ability to transcend the superficial and get to the heart of the matter.

Moon is in Aquarius in his 11th House of Friendship and Group Alliance.  His emotional well being was enhanced by being part of a group (of course) of like minded individuals.  Aquarius is the social activist interested in fairness for humanity as a whole. 

John also had 3 planetary powerhouses in Taurus backing up his Librian need for beauty, harmony and his powerful songwriting and musical abilities.  Venus in Virgo/5th house - love of children, love and a flowing creative expression...meticulous too.

Capricorn mid-heaven showed he was a man who understood establishment and power giving him the tools to be the social activist who left his indelible imprint in the social fabric.

Thank you for your contributions Mr. Lennon.

The Meaning and Symbolism of WEATHER in Dreams

Schedule a consult with Jean or give an incredibly unique gift for the holidays....reduced price GIFT CERTIFICATES Here

Excerpt from Jean's Book, "The Inner World, Exploring Your Dreams."  Jean has been a precognitive dreamer since childhood, has studied dreams all of her life and has kept a dream journal for over 25 years. 

Notice the weather in your dreams as it represents emotional and mental orientation.  Weather sets the tone of the dream and the action within the dream.  If it is bright and sunny, the overall message is positive and helpful.  Dark and stormy weather indicates a challenging situation.

Cloudy weather - uncertainty, confusion, ill at ease.  Storm Clouds show a state of unhappiness and anger.

Hurricane - emotional conflict, feeling overwhelmed and out of control.  Mental and emotional confusion.

Rain - emotional cleansing, unhappy emotions, depressing thoughts or spiritual activity.

Snow - frozen and cold emotions.  Asking for help shoveling snow - seeking help to move out of an unhappy situation; slow but inevitable progress.  When another helps you shovel snow - support from another.  Skiing - moving quickly over an emotionally cold or unpleasant situation.

Storms - emotional anger, violence, strong discomfort; trouble brewing

Sunny - bright and clear information; uplifting; positivity

Tornado - mental fervor; tumultuous thoughts; confusion; obsessive thinking

WATER represents our emotional natures.  Being hit with tidal waves or fear of drowning can indicate that we are feeling emotionally overwhelmed.  Our dreams can also communicate a need/desire to use more of our emotional and intuitive gifts.  Water is the feminine, emotional, or receptive side of our human personality.  Spirituality is often symbolized in dreams by the movement of and in water.  Swimming in water can represent actively working with and expressing our emotional and intuitive development.
