JANUARY 2019 NEWS LETTER
2019…ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
Oh my goodness 2018 was not a great year, so many planets challenging us to reform, change. Change has been harsh on many, job losses, parting of our beloved friends, pets or family members and the list just goes on and on.
So let’s bin 2018 and focus on what is ahead and in store for us in 2019.
Well we begin the year with a partial eclipse of the Sun on the 6th of January, oh dear, more change! Eclipses seem to act like a push from the Universe as it forcefully guides us into another direction. We may be teetering on the brink of a decision and along comes the eclipse and nudges us to make it happen.
This eclipse is in Capricorn, the Moon will be casting her shadow onto the Sun as she births into a new Moon, all happening on the fixed Star Wega. Fixed stars add extra meaning to the energy radiating from the eclipse.
The New Moon conjunct Wega could add energy to publically expose disgraceful, deceitful and fraudulent behaviours. As the Moon covers the Sun we will begin to see many ‘so called’ honourable people falling from grace. Any insincere people will soon be seen for what they are.
A worrying factor in this energy is that possible assassination of credible people who could expose the corrupt behaviour of insincere fraudulent people in power. In our own lives we need to be aware we do not lash when exposed of wrong doing.
With all this exposure, this eclipses forces a change that removes fraudulent and dishonourable power hungry so called leaders, from places of honour. After a mop up period this will create space for sincere leaders.
Personally we can receive this eclipse in another way, it is time for us to make a new beginning, to let go of our own deceitful and self destructive behaviour and move away from bossy dishonourable people. We need to understand that pride comes before a fall. Becoming honourable, honest and hard working with a sincere need for growth will be brilliant if you are starting a new business or within your career.
The positive side this Eclipse on Wega is generally good for business and rewards to those who have been working hard with integrity. So give it your all this month and remember to do so in an honourable yet humble manner.
Following the Solar eclipse is the lunar eclipse on the 21st of January, where we experience a full Moon. This is a total eclipse of the Moon, because it happens around 8 50am it will not be visible in South Africa.
Many people’s emotions reach a peak during a full Moon and when it is an eclipse, these emotions can become overwhelming; the eclipse can uncover deeply hidden wounds. The eclipse calls us to reset our intent, clearing away all our damaging emotional situations over the past year and from the years before.
Once we shed our emotional baggage we can clear a path for a bright new cycle. It is time to see a way to find honour, notoriety by being confident and shaking off the layers of insecurity we seem to hold onto. This eclipse will not be easy as it can expose the path and as you begin your journey you may encounter resistance, jealousy and even a bit of back biting from others. Well the lesson here is if they are not there to help or support you, then you need to let them go or manage their negative ways if you are not able to move out of their space. Remember at all times hold your head up high, be open to those who deserve to share in your success and shun those who can take the wind out of your sail. Be you own leader.
The message of these to eclipses is to restructure to put in structure and become an innovative person with noteworthy creativity and drive.
Thank goodness Mercury moves out of Sagittarius on the 6th the same day as the solar eclipse. Mercury enters Capricorn where our everyday routine and communication finally becomes more focused and practical.
Mercury is a planet that is responsible for the everyday routine of life and can dictate the weather. Last year Mercury went retrograde 3 times each time in a fire sign. Well the year was fraught with horrific fires, as for the weather we have suffered bazaar patterns, in South Africa we are going through extreme heat waves. and as the new year comes into play we have heavy rain fall.
In 2019 Mercury will retrograde in water signs where our emotional need will be expressed. This could also bring about floods, tsunamis, as well as dams that could overflow. I am certain Plumbers will be very busy as even our own personal waterworks may need repairing.
This January all the planets are direct in motion so we begin the year with an easy flow other than a nudge from the eclipses.
Saturn is in his own sign of Capricorn and this is perfect time for us to develop a backbone and take charge of our lives. Focus and build structures for the future. Saturn is a planet that rewards hard work. Generally this is a year where it is possible for mines and commercial companies to take control of their sinking ships see the reality of weak structures and to bring in a stronger set of rules.
Saturn is a hard task master and if you have not put in the effort to survive there will be circumstances. Companies will need to retrench, especially the hangers on, this is to enable survival. Good hard working people will be rewarded, as for the lazy…eisch…sorry for you.
Jupiter the planet of growth and plenty is at his best in Sagittarius a sign he rules. On the day of the solar eclipse, the 6th, Jupiter and Saturn will connect and the energy for expansive growth in a structured way will be very powerful.
Wow the 6th is a very interesting powerful day, be ready for any situation and make it work for you, be it good or in your eyes bad, bad is a lesson that challenges us to be better.
Around mid January Jupiter will square Neptune, Neptune is known as the solvent and Jupiter as the planet of growth. So does this mean that growth is dissolved? In a way yes, but it is the big idealistic and impractical ideals that will have to go, may not get the nod at work or in any situation. We will be exposed to the reality of our dreams and their practicality or we may just feel overwhelmed by so many options that we may take none.
This aspect will expose false optimism. Do not be tempted to take on unrealistic, great risk jobs or projects that really are either too good to be true or too big for you to manage. Remember there is no such thing as easy growth of any ideal or project.
Be careful of people that could take you for a ride or even take your initiative and use it as their own. Do not trust so openly, this mid month period is here to test your grasp on reality and the ability to translate your idea as a reality. If you are able to take off the rose tinted glasses you will see the flaws in the ideas you have in mind. Look at this as a positive way to find out if your idea is one that will work or if it needs to have a reality check.
This is a period where we may think people around us are delusional, but they are thinking the same about us, some may try to dazzle whoever will listen to their big stories and others offering the world but sadly their offers are all smoke and mirrors with no reality or pull through. Perhaps not the best time to believe all you read in a fortune cookie or to realise the answer to life is not as simple as winning the Lotto or trusting your lucky charm. To get ahead in life we need to be real about the steps we take and to trust in you, not magic and fortunes.
Mars is in the sign of Aries, he is so happy here as he just wants to pioneer for new and wonderful things. His energy reflects the pioneering spirit in all of us. It is time for action and impatience is at an all time high. But around the 21st Saturn steps in and curtails impulsive action, bringing in a more structured approach to how we project ourselves, becoming more practical and focused on whatever it is we want to achieve.
Venus brings out what we desire, Venus has been in a really bad place for the past 4 months, and this, amongst other planets, has made life challenging and undesirable. Well 8 days into January Venus moves into Sagittarius a zodiac sign of plenty, expansion and growth.
Wow with the action planet Mars pioneering a way forward and Venus desiring growth, this year gets off to a very good start. Remember that the choices we make this year will determine our growth and happiness or downfall and misery, actions have consequences. We have the options to choose positive informed growth, if you make bad destructive choices this can lead to consequences you will carry with you for the rest of your life.
As Robert Louis Stevenson said “Sooner of later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences” So remember that the consequences you sow in what you do and how you behave will bring rewards and good Karma if positive, but if negative then Karma can bring about a nasty and devastating outcome, especially with Saturn in Capricorn for the rest of this year.
Karma is the law that rules our lives and as per the law of Karma the saying goes ‘Positive deeds make merits and negative deeds make demerits’
This year brings about the end of complacency and the need to escape. By always feeling trapped we run down our body’s defence mechanism which has the adverse affect of listlessness.
Mars the action planet is so strong and powerful we really have the opportunity to harness this pioneering energy and use it to gain a healthy lifestyle.
First and foremost is to understand the power of exercise, we were not born to be sedentary, this is a lifestyle that has crept up and trapped us due to long hours in an office and many other excuses.
If we can plan a day at work then we can factor in at least half an hour for our bodies. Be it a brisk walk in the morning, a cycle, swimming if you prefer, even a short gym workout to begin with will be beneficial. We do need to self motivate to be able to begin a healthy exercise process. This will activate your adrenalin which will make you feel good and feeling good is a motivating factor to keep up the momentum of your new found daily exercise routine.
Doctors used to prescribe bed rest for back pain as well as other chronic pain conditions. This is no longer the case as studies have found that people who exercise are able to work out their painful conditions and mange their pain better than those who don’t.
In this modern day and age there are apps that you can download on your cell phone of exercise programs, so all you need to do is choose your exercise app and follow the cyber instructor. You can bring your own personal trainer right into your home for free!
If you have no idea how to exercise it would be worth your while to invest in a qualified biokinetisist, swimming coach or personal gym trainer to get you started.
2019 and January has so much potential, it is a positive year and your choice to take advantage of this positive energy, but in a good way. Be kind to each other and motivate each other. Have a great 2019…I certainly intend to!
