Astrology for Creative Artists


January is all about New Years resolutions. But for me, the stars were literally aligned in my favor to specifically jump start 2014 with much more than just a wish --- Astrologist, Stefanie Iris Weiss, (Author of Surviving Saturn's Return) explained in detail what the new moon in Capricorn means for me, and everyone else starting from January 1st until the 15th.

Now first off, (no offense to you Capricorns), but my birthday is May 23rd which makes me a fabulous Gemini! However, as Stefanie states, the new moon in Capricorn will give everyone an extra push to get off their asses and put their plans into action within the next two weeks (regardless of your sun sign). Imagine a goat running up an incredible mountain, pushing anyone who gets in their way with their circular horns. Can you picture it? The goat represents Capricorn. And some key words for this earth sign are ambition, determination, strength, and work.

I found this information extremely helpful since I happen to be one of those artsy types that loves to discuss new age philosophy and intellectual theories. In fact, not only do I know my sun sign, (Gemini), but I also know my ascendant (Leo), and guess what? Well, my moon sign just happens to be in Capricorn! I calculated this by knowing my time of birth (10:40 A.M.) - which makes a world of a difference when reading my horoscopes! But fear not! --- If the most you know about horoscopes is the sign of the month you were born in, this blog entry will explain how the new moon in Capricorn will effect everyone on this planet from January 1st through the 15th. And if you still think all this astrological stuff is all a little bit much to believe or understand, (somewhat like a crazy cult following), just remember that the moon does effect the ocean tides and people are mostly made up of water by approximately 75%!

OK, so let's get to the point! After meeting Stefanie Iris Weiss at Sana Vita for a New Years Day workshop, she explained that the best way to capitalize these next two weeks is by starting something new or stepping out in faith! The power of the new moon falling on New Years Day in Capricorn, can boost up your career to the point where a promotion may be just around the corner. Especially for those creative artists with millions of great ideas running wild but never seem to be able to contain them long enough to formulate a structure in how to execute them; now is the time to form a six-month plan because Capricorn supports a successful outcome! Thus, if you're an Actress who's been jumping from audition to audition, maybe now's the time to schedule a meeting with that casting agent you've had your eye on! Or if you're a painter who's been thinking of putting together a new exhibit or art show, now's the perfect time to begin brush stroking the picture-perfect theme! Stefanie strongly suggests not to waste this strong energy that's here to help plant our feet firmly on the ground and point us in the right direction! I don't know about you, but I think that's a great way to start 2014! Oh, and by the way... since this is my own blog... why not mention what my new years resolution is? It's to enhance my health so that I can build the stamina and vitality I need to fulfill my ultimate purpose in life, and live it passionately!
