The first work week of the year and we're experiencing a bit of Celestial turbulence. Saturn, the planet of restriction and delay began retrograde motion in Virgo on New Years Eve and Sunday mercury begins retrograde motion in Aquarius. To add to the challenges for the people of planet earth, there is a Full Moon in Cancer on Saturday at 8:27 PM PST. Let's just say things are probably going to feel a bit bumpy for awhile. Saturn will not return to direct motion until May 16th and mercury won't return to direct motion till the first of February--but take your time starting new projects. I like to give mercury time to clear its shadow period after a retrograde, and the shadow ends about the 20th of February.
Yeah, not the best news, but what does it mean to you? Be prepared to begin working on your goals for the New Year, but don't expect quick results. This is a time to really take a look at what is working in your life as well as what is not...and then set your plans carefully and in detail. Please don't use the retrogrades as an excuse to put off the work you need to do in order for 2009 to be a great year, because there will be some good news (especially for Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarian folks; stay tuned).
Hopefully you've already got your goals list put together. If not, I really like The Millionaire Course by Marc Allen; it's great for defining the vision of who/what you want to be when you grow up. And I like The Success Principles, by Jack Canfield for giving you great ideas to stay on track the entire year. Check out jackcanfield.com for forms that you can download and fill out each quarter so that you know what you're doing step by step, all year long, to be successful. I love the fact that he talks about having an accountability partner, someone you report in with on a regular basis; did you exercise, did you write a few pages each day for that book you want to publish next year--that kind of thing. Let's face it, there isn't going to be a 700 billion dollar bailout for the man/woman on the street. You better have a plan...
So, maybe it might be a good time to check in with your friendly, neighborhood psychic--yes that's me. My vocation is to help people achieve their dreams, to help you live a fulfilled life. Now if you're happy as a clam, that's great, but if not, I'd like to be your accountability partner. You have two eyes, why? For depth perception, of course and you can get better 'vision' into what you need to do in 2009 with a bit of metaphysical insight. Email me to set up your appointment.
Now, the good news is that saturn will take a brief tour of Libra at the end of 2009. It will retrograde back into Virgo, for a bit, in 2010, but all of you who have been suffering through insufferable work situations may feel a bit of relief toward the end of October. The restrictions and delays move to Libra and the issue of partnership--but we'll worry about that later.
So it's time to really pay attention to what you want and set your game plan. Be patient and make course corrections because the first six months of the year may not have a really great flow, but you can still come out of the deal the wiser if you are patient and do the work.
Wishing you great joy and fulfillment in 2009!
