Theme: Innovation

For the next two weeks, Mercury, the planet of communication, joins the Sun, one’s purpose, in Aquarius: one’s thinking and communication style is enhanced. Out-of-the-box insights can turn stubborn problems around. Beware of rebellion just for its own sake, and of subjectivity for the next several days. Today there is emotional stability, and an opportunity to improve, and deepen the partnerships in your life. When all think alike, then no one is thinking.- Walter Lippman

Today the Moon is Void of Course from 8.52 am EST USA until 11.04 pm. If you’re in another country check what that means for you time-wise. It’s best to avoid making major decisions or signing contracts during this time.

Theme: Good friends

Friendship and humanitarian goals are themes today and the people that enter your life bring blessings and benefit. It’s also a great day to practice generosity that comes straight from the heart.

Blessedness is not the reward of virtue, but virtue itself. ~Baruch Spinoza

Theme: Healing and forward movement

Today there is an opportunity to heal an old wound in order to forge a new productive path. This healing will leads to improved self-care. This is also a good time to improve relationships but exercise discrimination about new relationships that start at this time. With the Moon in Leo it’s time to be flamboyant and generous. People mistake any kind of experience that feels deep as a “spiritual” experience, not able to discriminate between something that feels spiritual and something that is an actual commitment and movement on one’s path. There really is a difference between a mantra and a backrub!~Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo

Theme: Happy Birthday Aquarians!

For all you friendly, futuristic freedom fighters Happy Birthday. Famous Aquarians are Jane Fonda, Bob Marley and Shakira. Today’s catchcry is ‘pray don’t panic! Tension continues. However there are spiritual solutions which result from contemplation, prayer and meditation. With the Moon in Cancer one more day, nurturing and imagination are important. To be a revolutionary you have to be a human being. You have to care about people who have no power.~Jane Fonda

True Virtue

ordained-M

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo on twitter:

What I look for in a monk or nun is renunciation, faith, kindness, willingness to help, deep and sincere love of the Three Precious Jewels. What I don’t like in a monk or nun is wearing robes for the sake of status, or to dominate others, to make yourself seem important.

If vows are broken there are ways to restore most of them but you must actually perform them according to your Teacher’s instruction. The need to boss people around is a very bad reason to take or restore robes. And not to brag that you are a good practitioner, that is bad. As an ordained Buddhist you must not use your robes to make money or to put yourself up as “the boss.” Monks and nuns must be humble and help.

Theme: Proceed cautiously

For the next ten days difficulty planetary energies (Saturn and Mars) create challenges around authority, fear and anger. It’s important to practice compassion at this time and hold the line with a good heart against naysayers. Today in particular you will experience emotional challenges. There is a silver lining. The planets of good fortune (Jupiter and Venus) are together encouraging optimism in difficult times. These mountains that you are carrying you were only supposed to climb.~Najwa Zebian

01/18/2019 Friday by Jampal & Wangmo

Theme: Disruption, depth and creativity

It’s hard to know where to start today as so much is going on. There is tension in the air and unexpected erratic behaviors that you will have to negotiate. On a mental level there is a desire to understand deeply what is happening, but don’t obsess. Today’s saving grace is a nice flow of creative energy which will serve the artist-within well. There is nothing fancy in flirting with danger. Why can’t people find the thrill by turning within? If you don’t experience this, you’ll be missing a spectrum of life that really does exist.~Prem Rawat

Today the Moon is Void of Course from 8.34 pm EST USA until 10.45 pm. If you’re in another country check what that means for you time-wise. It’s best to avoid making major decisions or signing contracts during this time.

Astrology for 01/17/2019

01/17/2019 Thursday by Wangmo & Jampal

Theme: Deep thinking

With the planet of communication and thought, Mercury, right next to the planet of transformation, Pluto, it’s an opportunity to dive deeply into matters that need close attention and investigation. As Plato says,
Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself. It also means communication can be more loaded than usual. Yet there is a lighter side as the moon is in social Gemini interacting with expansive Jupiter and engaging Venus making conversations and social engagements enjoyable.
