Happy New Years!! Here we go with a new year! And there seems to be so much hope and stability coming from so many! Numerologically 2013 is a universal number 6. 6 is a number of balance, simplicity, unconditional love; and the thought of as above, so below. Astrologically the 6th house is one of self-improvement and daily routines... the work of everyday life.
"A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching." ~Sivananda
I see this year as one of change.. some of it will be rather sudden and some of it will be mellow! However it comes about, it looks as though it will really be for the best and EXACTLY how it is supposed to be. It will be a year that brings us closer to ourselves, but also to one another. There will be much to be learned this year. But for now, let's just see what we can expect for the first week of the new year!
Aries (Mar 21 - April 19)- Your ruling planet Mars is currently in Aquarius, your 11th house of groups and friendships; hopes and dreams, and The Devil reversed is reminding you to allow yourself to open up to the help of others. While you like to do things on your own and take pride in your accomplishments, a lot can be learned from sharing responsibilities! It will be important to learn that your way is not the ONLY way to approach things. You're ready for things to finally become stable and the energy of the beginning new year this week is the perfect time to get started on making things right in life again!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)- Emotionally you may feel as though it is time to clear up any misunderstandings that have happened with those you care most for. With your ruling planet Venus in Sagittarius and your 8th house of sharing, accepting responsibility for your part in things will be transformational in your healing. Re-examine what it is that you want and need for yourself. There may be an anxious feeling for things to change, but knowing that the effort that you put in will ultimately decide whether there is success or not is going to be an important realization. YOU have the power to make things happen!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- This week you are expecting some sort of validation for your efforts and your focus is going to be on how you can expand your prosperity for the coming year. You could feel like you're juggling more than you can handle right now though! If you spread yourself too thin over many projects, you're likely not to finish any of them! Take some time to decide what will be the best course to take with the outcome you're wanting and stick with it. Patience will be needed, but with a little determination you'll be able to achieve the success you're looking for!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- Your wishes will be granted! The harmony you have been working so hard for is finally starting to be realized. This comes from a feeling of gratitude as well. The ruler of your 4th house, Venus, has been in Sagittarius and your 6th house of routines giving you a balance between work, relationships, and home life that you have been creatively managing! Things have fallen into a steady rhythm and you'll be able to keep this going if you don't allow the little things to weigh you down. It isn't always about providing for others.. take time for yourself as well!
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- Already doubting those resolutions will come to fruition? Let's not surrender before the fight even begins! You know it's time for change, but only you can get yourself out of this rut! Let go of the fear of things being different and bring yourself into the light. And please don't try and place the blame and responsibility on others. You need to put that Leoine pride to good use, or better yet, your money where your mouth is! When you give, you get. You want the best that the world has to offer you and it's time that you give your best to the world!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- Your quest for perfection has fallen short in some way. But don't give up while there's still time to follow your dreams. Tomorrow is another day and you deserve peace of mind! This may be the hardest decision you have EVER had to make, but aren't you worth it? Your heart might not be meeting up with your head and trying to weigh out the pros and cons isn't what's going to make any sense. Maybe you really are where you wanted to be and now you are questioning it.. Either way, you need to figure it out! Don't sacrifice happiness for comfort.
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- The scales are out of balance and you could be worried about when you'll be able to slow down. If you need to let something go to regain your sanity, it's just the way it needs to be! Don't be completely discouraged by the situations. Focus on what's most important and take things step by step and you'll be able to accomplish what is going to best suit you. The rest will fall away and you can re-evaluate if it was something that you needed to do in the first place. Just don't scrap everything and start from scratch or you'll be in the same spot.
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)- Your faith could be being tested, but you know that you're making the right decision in things.You'll be able to sigh with relief once things have come to fruition. Moving forward will cleanse you from the ties that held you down! Emotionally you may be a little erratic, but it happens to everyone occasionally! The choices you've made haven't been easy and now you will be rewarded for your courageousness. Compromise isn't in your vocabulary any longer. You know if those around you don't understand that, that they don't understand you. Your happiness ultimately comes from how you feel about yourself!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)- Are you waiting for an invitation to change things? It's important to learn from the past, but don't get stuck there. You won't be able to instantly make things better though! It's going to take a plan and time. If you've just been coasting by, it's time to ask more of yourself! Don't expect others to fix things or figure it out for you either... you need to stand on your own two feet. Contributing to the greater good will give you more of the satisfaction you are looking for. Even if it seems inconsistent with what you're used to, you'll be able to make a difference in things for yourself as well as others!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- You'll need to be careful this week of getting caught up in things that you know aren't going to benefit you. There's no easy way out, no get rich quick schemes that'll bring you what you're wanting. While you're usually so capable, try not to shut down emotionally and allow those that want to help you to do so! You need to start chipping away at the things causing you the most burdens. Even if that means that it's done with tough love. This is the time for you to get on the right track... maybe that idea you gave up on would really bring you the most happiness if you give it a shot!?
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- This week might have you feeling a little unsure of where you stand in the world and wanting to fit in. You usually revel in your individuality but if you're wanting stability, you'll need to allow yourself to be a little vulnerable. Detaching yourself from things isn't going to bring you the clarity you're seeking. And throwing yourself too much into something as an avoidance tactic will only bring you to a place mentally that will be hard to get out of. Sometimes you can be too understanding and it's time to decide if it's worth it before resentment becomes a dividing factor. Just be careful as misery does love company!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- If you're feeling overwhelmed by the prospects that the new year is bringing; rein it in a little!! Things may be at a new beginning, but it doesn't mean that everything is gone from the past. You can still rely on the comforts of your traditional planet Jupiter still being in your 4th house of stability for now. If you're not ready to tackle things yet, that's fine. You don't need to feel like there is a deadline that you're needing to meet. Just take things day by day. It's always better to live in the present than to worry about the future.. it comes soon enough!
Well look at that.. 2 posts in a week! Let's hope I can keep this momentum going! ;) If you would like me to take a look at how things will be shaping up in the next year for you, please send me a message at facebook or my email!
I wish everyone a safe, prosperous and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

It's that time again!!! WOW, where did the year go?! It definitely seems like for me that the last 2 years have gone by so quickly... but that's what having babies does to you! And then before ya know it you're working on their schoolwork! Let me tell ya I'm sooo looking forward to my daughter hitting the teen years this coming year! LOL!
So here we are with making our resolutions for the upcoming year. And will we fall flat with some of them? Of course! Two of the biggest resolutions that get made are to lose weight and quit smoking. Both exceptionally tough to maintain! But does that mean that we've failed? Absolutely not! Every day we wake up, and actually every moment, we're given the chance to make a change!
The Law of Attraction WORKS. But it's also something that can be misunderstood. Mostly because a lot of people are under the assumption that manifesting comes about simply by wanting it, but it really comes about by LIVING it and by being grateful. Let's take the example of wanting more money. By receiving more money there can be a false security that it'll bring more happiness. Maybe you can buy more things, but maybe the debt will also end up increasing as well... and then you're left at the same place that you were at when you had LESS money! It really is true that money can't buy happiness! Just as losing weight won't make you happier either.. the focus on one "imperfection" just end up switching over to another. Coming to a point in life where you're able to be grateful for what IS, makes for a more peaceful life. Accomplishments seem to come about easier and are more cherished when there isn't the stress to succeed! When the stress becomes a factor, the focus becomes off balance and we either desire MORE or we just give up and start the cycle all over again.
Do I encourage making resolutions? Absolutely! If you look up the word resolution, one of the definitions is; the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose. It really is the conscious choice of making a change! But we all know change can be tough! I look at resolutions as a way to reaffirm what we just haven't been able to achieve.. YET! But as long as we keep working at them, they'll happen when they're supposed to.. NOT when we think they should or try to force them to come about! I am all for organizing and making lists. In fact, I'd like to share this great blog planner for anyone else that might need it from Confessions of a Homeschooler. You can bet that I've been putting it to good use today while I've been manifesting during this Full Moon! I know I keep saying that I'm going to try blogging more and keep falling short... but this time, I'm really hoping to make it stick!!
I hope everyone has had a happy holiday season and is looking forward to the blessings the New Year will bring! If you'd like me to take a look at what you can expect for 2013, please send me a message at facebook or my email and I'll be glad to help with a reading!
