Lyrics: Soul II Soul – Back to Life
“Back to life, back to reality. Back to life, back to reality. Back to life, back to reality. Back to the here and now yeah. Show me how, decide what you want from me. Tell me maybe I could be there for you. However do you want me, however do you need me. How, however do you want me, however do you need me.”
The holiday rush is behind us. The tinsel, lights, pretty paper, rituals and that yearning for an ideal (incorporated into every glossy magazine ad) that couldn’t possibly exist in the real world, is packed up for another year. US shoppers caught on to how the “shopping game” is rigged and in 2015 spent less money and bought fewer big-ticket items. Good. People are starting to understand that their “power resides in the wallet.”
A New Moon is the reset button for goals and intentions. The first New Moon of 2016 kicks off the New Year on January 9th @ 19 Capricorn. It’s the 2nd New Moon with the North Node in Virgo and the 4th New Moon @ 19-degrees. Saturn (time/maturity/responsibility/structure/discipline/patience) rules Capricorn (status quo/big business/government/daddy). Time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming we call LIFE!
It’s time to give form to that which is formless. Take the long-view! 2016 in many ways is a continuation of the same issues we were all addressing before the holidays. Saturn (form) is loosely squaring (tension) Neptune (formlessness). Define Reality! Here’s the deal, they really are trying to work together, but it may not feel that way some days. It can be frustrating because humans are not used to this much disciplined action. Not to fret! Saturn and Uranus are working in harmony, so we have High-Octane-Rocket-Fuel for Dreams to Come! Use it wisely and pace yourself.
We’ve been living in fast-forward so it’s time to take a pause, as the Chinese like to say. Rewind! Mercury (communication/travel/thought process/hearing/ seeing/ transactions) stations retrograde on January 5th and therein lies the “Spark of Hope.” Think back to December 19th-20th as Mercury merged with Pluto, the Lord-of-let-me-get-my-shit-together-and-let-go-of-useless-baggage, and we finish the conversation on January 25th, when these 2 meet back where they were December 19-20. Whew! As an FYI, Mercury will station retrograde with Pluto right before Christmas 2016 at this sensitive degree, yet once again. Remember lessons learned from the 2015 holiday please.
Jupiter (expansion) and the North Node (Soul Desire) are travel partners in the sign of Virgo (service/health/sacred) right now, with the first BIG MERGE coming January 23rd. Jupiter stations retrograde January 7th, so understand that something might get put on hold, have faith, because once Jupiter and the North Node meet on January 23rd, at the least, we each can see where a door has opened. HAVE FAITH!
NOTE: Think back to July 1994. Do you happen to remember if you were mesmerized or attentive to Comet Shoemaker-Levy breaking up and slamming into Jupiter? If so, your faith is going to be restored in something you gave up on long ago. Expect a “sloppy kiss” from the Universe! Enjoy your new-found-wisdom and yes, that old saying “good things come to those who wait” is most appropriate now!
“Back to life, back to the present time, back from a fantasy yeah. Tell me now, take the initiative. I’ll leave it in your hands until you’re ready oh. However do you want me, however do you need me. How, however do you want me. However do you need me, however do you want me. However do you need me.”
2016 is a year chock-full of “hello and goodbyes.” It’s a Mutable Year. That means be adaptable, be flexible and above all, be practical. Saturn square Neptune is the “big transit” this year, guiding each of us as we re-create reality-step-by-step. Nothing is carved in stone…….YET! The best way to make progress is with practical daily steps in the desired direction. It’s amazing how all those “small detailed steps” add up to big change! There will be NO skipped steps in 2016 and we are each responsible for our own future.

“I wish I could __________________________.”
“Life is _______________________________.”
Your answers are your Personal Law, what we each believe about our lives. Humans are continually subconsciously re-programmed everyday via TV, radio, internet, print and movies. Choose your self-programming consciously. Are you in the work situation you want? Do you have the relationship you want? Capricorn is about power. The amount of money you have is a “power.” Your relationships are a source of “power.” Power is always for sale. How powerful are you?
It takes courage to offer yourself to the world. Everyone has something to offer. Relationships are definitely going to feel change this year. Not everyone is going to want or accept your heartfelt feelings. Fear of rejection is something all humans experience. Experience teaches us through rejection that we gain strength, overcome fear and clarify our self-expression. Examine your motives. Then again, there are those who simply cannot or will not receive what you have to offer. Adjust and move on. Let go! And always, always, always be open to giving love to someone who will appreciate it. Do not look for instant gratification. Flow with the “GO!” Work with the “force” of “power” in your life now. “And now…….back to your regularly scheduled programming!”
“I live at the top of the block, no more room for trouble or fuss. Need a change, a positive change look, look it’s me writing on the wall. However do you want. However do you. Back to life, back to the day we have. Let’s end this foolish game. Hear me out, don’t let me waste away. Make up your mind so I know where I stand.”
All is well! 🙂
“I invoke the blessed WE-ARE to lead, guide and direct my thoughts, deeds, words and actions for the Highest Good of everyone I encounter today. So Be It!” ~Daily Prayer
