You set the agenda and we spend an hour together discussing 
perceived barriers as well as overcoming any limiting beliefs

The Sun heads out of realistic and ambitious Capricorn and into individualistic and inventive Aquarius. Over the next four weeks we seek to express our individuality and uniqueness. The New Moon occurs on Monday the 23rd at 2 degrees of Aquarius squaring expansive Jupiter, and sextiling Uranus, Aquarius' ruling planet. This lunation encourages a freeing from convention and social conditioning while initiating one's personal freedom. Equality and fairness are the hallmarks of the upcoming month.

Ceres, the asteroid symbolizing nurturing, mothering, love, parenting, grief, despair, depression, and agriculture, is transiting the sign of Aries until April 10th—just prior to Mars moving into direct motion. 

Mars moves into retrograde from January 23rd until April 13th . This heralds a time of slowed outward action and assertion as Mars delves more deeply into the house affairs it is currently transiting. Progress may feel sluggish, but consider this an 11-week period of due diligence, information gathering, and getting clear about motivations and desires. Many will require more rest. Also, be aware of obsessing over details that really don't matter.

The Mars retrograde finds your daily schedule easing after a prolonged period of consistent busyness.  You now have the space to assimilate all that has transpired since last Fall and to ponder your next steps. This period is advantageous for vetting any physical problems and applying yourself in the mending of mind/body health. Ceres accentuates a period of self-care as well as involving yourself in the care and maintenance of others. The New Moon highlights goals, self-actualization initiatives, and activities within groups and social circles.

This is a time to go deeper into your creative leanings, undertakings with children, and your romantic life. There is a learning involved which asks you to more fully engage with what you want and what truly juices you. The New Moon indicates fresh energy in your public life and career. The group mind is important now. Ceres offers a time of healing and the releasing of your past actions, family imprints, and any guilt you may be hanging on to. Dreams feature strongly, helping you to identify and clear self-defeating patterns.

Life has been busy with home affairs, parents, moving, selling, working from home. Some have been dealing with aggressiveness and anger. Obsessing over who was wrong or right may have taken up psychic energy but the slowing of Mars alleviates the internal pressures and allows for more space in the integration process. Ceres transiting your 11th house indicates nurturing and mothering from and for your important associations and team involvements. You may be grieving the end of a friendship. The New Moon encourages inventive initiatives in marketing, teaching, studies, publishing, and travel.

Ceres transits your most public house of career and reputation.  Discipline and responsibility are important in your avocation. A mentor may be encouraging and “parenting” you on career objectives and professional ethics.  You may be caring for a parent, authority figure, or supervisor. Mars retrograde slows the rate of your communications and signals a time when your thoughts pull inward for review and revision. Not an advantageous time for new contracts or selling initiatives. Stay with already known quantities and prospects. The New Moon heralds a time for financial restructuring, investments, bonuses, commissions, heightened sexual expression, and intimacy.

Both personal and professional partnerships are infused with energy at the New Moon in your 7th house of relationships—the quirkier the better. New life can be injected into ongoing associations as more people populate your world.  Outward energy slows in the area of finances, earnings, income, and personal belongings. You are pondering the value of things now as well as YOUR value in the marketplace. Consider this time well spent.  Ceres influences people at a distance, travel, legalities, education, and publishing. Any discomfort around these areas is seeking to be healed. Projects may involve spiritual journeys, volunteering, and the love for acquiring more philosophical knowledge.

Please do not lament the slowing of energy and outward progress.  Wisdom is contained in the retrograde movement of Mars in your sign. This is a time for additional rest and for personal reflection and revisions regarding your personal goals and agenda. The New Moon ushers in a time for stronger health care regimes, work practices, and organizing your day-to-day schedule. Ceres influences shared finances and powerful intimate exchanges.  Grieving and the need for stronger fiscal responsibility may be elevated now.

Ceres expands your desire to nurture through relating. This is a good time to work with the public, since sincere motivation to nurture others in a diplomatic and graceful way is evident. Relationships are especially healing and loving now. The New Moon kicks off a four-week period of increased pleasure with children, creative projects, and in your romantic life. Mars’ backward slide suggests a time to be extra aware of health needs, sleep, and rest. You are thinking over your private desires, needs, and how to effectively assert your self.

The New Moon brings focus to your home, personal life, and family.  Fresh initiatives are possible now, moving along personal comfort and new starts within your domicile. Ceres influences your work life, health, care of pets, and co-workers. Some may be grieving the passing of a beloved pet. Others may be a supportive influence for people experiencing a personal loss. Nurturing and care are indicated in your interactions with employees and co-workers. Your ruling planet Mars ((co-ruler) slows down the engagement and, in some cases, anger with friends and group involvements. An effective time to review goals and personal desires is at hand.

With Ceres transiting the area of all things love related you will enjoy generously nurturing your loved ones and children. Any grieving you are experiencing may be due to the misuse of money shared with friends, conflicting values, or custody battles. You feel nurtured by receiving attention and you feel comfortable creatively expressing yourself. The New Moon encourages contracts, communication projects, writing, and increased interaction with siblings and neighbors. A re-think is happening with Mars retrograding in the area of authority figures, career, and life direction. Ambitious projects may take longer than anticipated. Any contentious exchanges with parents or authority figures recede as people review their assertiveness and aggressiveness.

Home and family are important now as Ceres transits your 4th house of housing, parents, and emotional well being. You give and receive nurturing in your personal life. Real estate and home moves may be highlighted over the next two months. The New Moon encourages focused energy on earnings, buying, selling, and the cultivation of your talents and abilities. Mars slows down travel, teaching, studying, lawsuits, and public relations. Go deeper with what is already evident and on your plate.

Your solar year begins this week, reviving your desires, identity, and personal goals. The New Moon in your sign reaches out to your ruling planet Uranus, which is now transiting your 3rd house of mental habits, communications, travel, contracts, siblings, and neighbors. Ceres is also transiting this very area, suggesting a time of healing in your self-talk patterning and habits. What “not enough” tapes are evident and how can you change them?  This is a time to heal limiting beliefs and to engage in nurturing discussions and exchanges with loved ones. Mars slows in the area of sexuality, intimacy, finances, and psychology. You go deeper in these areas to gain more understanding of self and others.

The New Moon suggests that this a time for additional rest, introspection, healing, and meditation. Lighten your schedule. Mars retrogrades in the area of partnerships, easing the demanding dynamics from others. Since last Fall you have been under pressure from the others in your world. You now have some time and space to ponder other people’s motivations, desires, and agendas. The Ceres transit opens pathways of enjoyment regarding material possessions, skill building, and income. For some, this may be a time of grieving around issues of self-esteem or income.

The Sun and Mercury continue to transit grounded and practical Capricorn. Capricorn is interested in structure, growth, and sustainability. When the planet of the mind, Mercury, transits Capricorn we are interested in the bottom line and realistic possibilities that have staying power.

The Saturn Neptune trine in effect all month is also interested in sustainability while incorporating our creativity and idealism. Giving form and foundation to that which fuels compassion and inspiration is strongly encouraged and utterly doable.

The energy ruling love, money, and affections is very active this week as Venus ingresses into Pisces, a sign that supports her desire nature. She is exalted in Pisces. She activates the Saturn Neptune trine and deepens our desire for love and creativity. Her movement further enhances the urge for expression of beauty and creativity.

When the Sun makes an uncomfortable aspect to Saturn on the 19th we are asked to reassess assumptions surrounding partnership and relating patterns, suggesting a time to consolidate and critique.

ARIES: Neptune prepares to move out of the area representing authentic goals and inspired alliances (the first week in February) and grounds the lessons learned over the past 13 years. He rewards your efforts and growth and creates partnerships that are both enlightened and functional. Know that this arrangement has legs and serves all concerned in the highest way possible. Venus shifts into an area encouraging rest, rejuvenation, and private pleasures.

TAURUS: Career goals are manifest now and clearly support your life direction while healing challenges that have occurred over the past two years in relation to work, colleagues, and health. Life direction, mind/body health, and your daily schedule are enhanced and flow in ways that have been alive in your imagination. Venus adds warmth and grace to your social interactions and helps you reach deep in your appreciation of and healing through friendship.

GEMINI: Your creative projects, children's education, travel, and love affairs receive divine inspiration. Practical foundations of continuity and effectiveness are unfolding. Venus moves into the area representing ease and wellbeing in your career and community involvements. You are well received by the public now. Mercury's contact with investigative Pluto suggests the ability to problem solve in the areas of finances, loans, commissions, and investments.

CANCER: The Sun and Mercury continue to heighten your interaction with others, providing much needed clarity. Saturn's transit of your home, family, and emotional wellbeing is positively influenced–emotionally and financially—by the resources of others. This shores up confidence and self-esteem. Venus moves into fellow water sign Pisces and attracts the way forward in travel, education, public relations, marketing, publishing, and with women at a distance. Getting your message out to a broader audience is easy for you now.

LEO: Neptune is finally preparing to exit the area of your life ruling partnerships, clients, the public, and business associations. Confusion and vagueness now morphs into reliable exchange, contracts, and writing projects that are sustainable and supported by others. Work and communications with colleagues continue to be highlighted. Some intensity and financially important exchanges occur on Friday. Venus favors a few weeks of luck with finances, growing intimacy, and the receiving of benevolent help from others.

VIRGO: Venus transitions into your partnership house and supports positive and loving exchanges with others. Your skills, talents, and ways of making money are enhanced. The energy of duration and hard work connects with your service offerings and day-to-day schedule. Your creativity can be transformed to help create fresh money making ideas and business possibilities. Your creativity continues to be developed by Mercury's transit. Affairs of your children are highlighted as well.

LIBRA: Saturn's transit of your sign has been challenging, maturing, confining, and strengthening. There are no new lessons here as Saturn sits at the last degree of your sign. Expect a final ten-month period of refining and integration. His trine with Neptune builds upon your creative ability, relations with children, and romantic life. You can rely on what you experience now since it is anchored in both compassion and realistic opportunity. Venus supports your daily working life and helps to increase income, health, and wellbeing.

SCORPIO: The inner dimensions signifying emotional wellbeing, inherited family patterns, spiritual connectedness, home, family, and parents are areas of growing harmony, balance, and integration. Saturn's transit through the sensitive 12th house has required you to let go of outworn identities, roles, and even status—not an easy process at times. Now you are feeling a sense of wellbeing and calm. Venus urges you to spend time pursuing leisure activities, fun, romance, and quality time with children. You enter a creative period that enhances your self-esteem.

SAGITTARIUS: Stronger community involvement and business activity with friends and associates can emerge now. Contracts can be formed that embrace an ideal or a desired working situation with a colleague. Agreements made now can further your goals and what you envision for yourself in the future. Venus's transit of your 4th house sees you involved in home beautification projects. Relations with parents and family are warm and supportive.

CAPRICORN: A strong period for career and income is upon you. Neptune's transit of your 2nd house of earned income, talents, and abilities has brought a confusion, change, and idealism to your earning capacity and recognition of your talents. Saturn paves the way forward and provides solid avenues of achievement and continuity in your career and life direction. Venus graces your communications, contracts, relationships with siblings, and neighborhood involvements.

AQUARIUS:  This is the end of your solar year which is in preparation for the new year ahead.  Allow more time in your schedule for rest and relaxation.  Venus finishes her transit to your sign and is now aiming her sights on increasing your income and highlighting your talents.  Expect more money to flow your way over the next few weeks.  Saturn and Neptune encourage you to see the big picture and to absolutely "believe" that you can make your dreams a reality - go for the highest and the best.

PISCES: As your ruling planet Neptune reaches out to steadying Saturn, you find sustaining moments of psychological healing and self-driven creativity. Dealings with institutions and organizations can be financially sound and emotionally healing. Venus moves into your sign over the weekend and brings strong feelings of wellbeing and love. Focus on those things that you wish to attract into your life– think of all things abundant.

Schedule Your Year Ahead 2012 Session with Jean

The first three weeks of the New Year are unprecedented in that all the planets are moving forward. Typically, we have at least one or two in retrograde motion. In translation this means that now is the time for change, to make decisions, and to initiate action. Action will now have staying power devoid of hold-ups, miscommunications, and glitches. But there is one caveat: the energy ruling desire, willpower, ego assertion, and physical energy is slowing down. Mars, which usually moves forward a degree every two days, will now take five days due to his imminent retrograde on the 23rd. He will be lingering between 20–23 degrees of Virgo all month.

So, for planning purposes, be aware that what is initiated in the area of your chart that Mars is transiting will have the GREEN light but a sense of completion around these very areas may take longer than you anticipate. Mars will turn retrograde on the 23rd (although we are now feeling a slow down) until mid-April. There is more to your “assumptions” than is currently shown. Inward attunement, contemplation, and thoroughness will be the energetic modality over the next 11 weeks.

Mercury is exceptionally active this week, highlighting conscious awareness, contracts, agreements, and increased communications and travel. Saturday aligns both the ideal and real in our decision making as Mercury reaches out to both Saturn and Neptune. On Sunday, he moves into the pragmatic and foundation laying sign of Capricorn. On the same day, he trines uplifting and educational Jupiter; followed by surprising information that arrives courtesy of Uranus.

Monday brings the Full Moon in the emotional and home-oriented sign of Cancer, which reaches out to Mars in a growth-oriented aspect signaling energy and initiative. Mercury again is in operation as he sextiles healing and understanding Chiron.

ARIES: You will feel relief as the intense pace of your day-to-day schedule slows. You at in the “end game” of all of the relationship lessons that have been part of your life for the past two years. The rest is just tweaking and refining. Affairs of the home, parents, and family culminate at the Full Moon. A-ha moments are followed by action. Practical planning, career discussions, and goodwill from your friends and associates all increase.

TAURUS: Any intensity that you have been dealing with in affairs of the heart and/or with your children will lighten as Mars slows down in your love and pleasure sector. Reviews are in order, encouraging an inward pull and keeping your own council. You are busy at the Full Moon with contracts, siblings, communications, and writing projects. This is a creatively inspired time. Venus continues to galvanize your allure and public reputation.

GEMINI: Partnership discussions, arrangements, and agreements are all ending on a high note this week. Finally, some closure and increased understanding between parties is experienced now. Your earned income, stuff that you own, and the state of your self-esteem is highlighted at the Full Moon. Decisions and activity flow within your home and with family. The next couple of weeks are ideal for reviewing finances and investments. Work in and around the home slows, allowing for more emotional rest and recuperation.

CANCER: You are personally spotlighted at the Full Moon. This time indicates a personal culmination and/or awareness of your priorities. Your speech, community activities, sibling interactions, and writing/speaking projects are strongly and positively interwoven at the Full Moon. The next couple of weeks also heighten your engagement with important others, encouraging the development of partnerships through enhanced communications. You are blessed with support from others, both emotionally and financially.

LEO: The outpouring of cash and purchasing activity should ease as Mars slows down in your money house. You are entering a time to save more, spend less, and plan for future financial adventures. Partnerships continue to thrive, basking in the warm glow of Venus. Planning and communication increase in the areas of work and health, encouraging decisive decision-making. Lightening your schedule at the Full Moon is suggested since you will need time for additional rest and reflection.

VIRGO: Personal initiatives and activity slow as Mars gets ready for an 11-week review of your desires and personal plans—so please don't get frustrated. Change your orientation to one of “the slower I go the more thorough and long lasting the effects of my actions.” We're talking staying power, okay? Yet, a culmination and positive goal is reached at the Full Moon, which will be well served by constant application rather than fast and quick conquests. Mercury brings pleasant and healing closure to your home and family situation before moving on to the area of creativity and pleasure.

LIBRA: If sleepless nights, anger, and free-floating anxiety have been a problem, expect the static to clear and slow as Mars eases up in the areas of subconscious activity and family imprints from the past. You now have some “psychic” space to work through any self-defeating thought and emotional patterns. Issues of career and life direction are highlighted at the Full Moon. You are supported by others in your world, albeit quietly and behind the scenes. Venus continues to infiltrate your world with much needed fun, love, and creativity. Decisions regarding home and family are still a focus throughout the month.

SCORPIO: The Full Moon brings levels of completion, awareness, and culmination in the areas of study, travel, writing/publishing, lawsuits, and international contacts. A plateau is reached and energizes the area of future goals and networking activity. Mars begins to slow down the passionate engagement with others as you acclimate changes recently made in your social circles. Venus continues to warm your heart at home and with family.

SAGITTARIUS: Resources, shared finances, intimacy, and your psychology are illuminated at the Full Moon, bringing awareness and understanding surrounding intimate others and emotional involvement. Money is highlighted in relation to career, so follow up on professional possibilities. Relating continues to encompass the sweet and sublime as Venus moves through your relationship sector. Your ability to make decisions and reach agreements is nicely highlighted over the weekend.

CAPRICORN: You are surfacing now that your birthday month is underway. Thinking moves out of the subconscious and into the accessible conscious mind. Mercury moves gracefully into your sign this week, providing flowing energy in the areas of earned income and contract negotiation. Partnerships are highlighted at the Full Moon encouraging the sharing of creative energies and any matters concerning your children.

AQUARIUS: Attraction is the name of your game as Venus transits your sign and brings what you desire and perhaps even need. Ask for favors, as folks are more prone to grant wishes and help you along in your goals. The Full Moon highlights your day-to-day schedule, work, and health. You may be extra busy these few days or receiving some much needed information about how to increase your health and well-being. Mars slows down in the areas of investments, psychological health, healing and a partner’s resources.

PISCES: Activity within partnerships has been spirited, more active, and in some cases contentious. Expect others' needs and wants (and demands) to slow, allowing you to catch up with, process, and step back from overt challenges and conflicts. The Full Moon highlights matters with your children, creative projects, and romance. The OTHERS in your world support these activities, so embrace the acknowledgment.
