focus moves from self to partnership. How do you relate
within yourself to your thought process, to the foods that you
eat, to the people you spend time with? What is the quality of
each relationship? What nourishes you, and what depletes you?
As you are honest with yourself, you can begin to see where necessary
weeding out is important. Define boundaries that are clarifications
for you and others of what is acceptable, and what is not. Develop
a stronger connection to God, and rely on Faith as your partner
rather than worry and doubt. There can be a strong attraction
or major break that you make this month. It’s all about
what feeds your soul. Let Divine Light guide you…then there
is nothing to fret about.
bud is opening. Whereas you’ve spent the year waiting
or gathering ideas and data, now it is time to allow the wellspring
of creativity to express fully. As you release your gifts without
inhibition, you invite the power of attraction to find and bless
you with good. You can inspire, motivate, and be very persuasive.
This influence supports social engagements and financial gain…so
use it! Emotional issues need to be put into perspective. Be loving
and caring, but don’t block your light because of someone
else’s drama. A sense of humor goes a long way, so along
with creativity, practice laughter and joy!
focus turns to practical considerations. It’s time
to check out the areas of your life that are built on a solid
foundation and the ones that need shoring up or transformation.
Where do patterns of the past undo you, and where are there opportunities
that you need to be willing to grasp? Overcome hesitation. Believe
in yourself. Push a little harder even if part of you is afraid
to try. You can make it…and in the process, you strengthen
yourself and your ability to overcome adversity. By saying, “Yes!”
to life, you signal your intention to achieve the best that is
possible. In so doing, you are well on your way to getting it!
of change enter the picture. It is important to be aware
of areas where you are willing to risk and expand horizons, and
areas where you resist movement. There may be travel, unexpected
company, lots of information, or a feeling of being scattered.
On the other hand, there may be shifts within yourself or the
need to be flexible in the face of unexpected external events.
Find a centered place within that is not pulled this way or that
as life presents challenges or opportunities. Always go back to
the strength of your inner foundation, and then make your move.
in on family, health, and service, you
find opportunities to give of yourself. After
a year of scattered energy, the lens begins to focus, honing in
on the quality of your giving and receiving. You may feel like
Mother Earth, regardless of your gender. Nurturance is required…
to you and from you. Take better care of your health. Let important
relationships know that you care for them. As you open your heart
to loving more fully, you are gifted with appreciation and benefits
that come in many forms. If you let resentment run your agenda,
you miss golden opportunities. Honor traditions and values that
are meaningful. As you do, your life is enriched.
time to pull in your energy. Focus on a special area
of interest, or take time to be with yourself. Find comfort in
stillness. Prayer and meditation can yield wonderful results in
terms of self-knowledge. This year has focused on service or healing,
but now you need to take a Sabbatical and give something to yourself.
Nature restores you. Go more deeply into your spiritual underpinnings.
Find the root connection to your sense of God. Ask questions about
your purpose on Earth, and be willing to listen for answers. Relationships
that arise bring lessons to both of you, and may have a quality
of student/teacher. This month, the questions are important. Don’t
be afraid to ask.
month focuses on bringing your inner and outer world
into balance and harmony. The year has been about deeper self-understanding
and knowledge, but now you begin to feel the stirring of wanting
to or having to achieve something in the world, and will see results
for what you’ve done in the past. There can be acknowledgement,
rewards, awards, or a sense of achievement. Powerful people can
assist you. However, if you avoided taking care of things, you
now are required to handle the more difficult aspects of having
to play catch up. Deal with all events and issues to the best
of your present ability. As you take care of the little things,
the bigger ones come together.
go of what needs to be released. If someone moves on,
it’s time for them to depart from your life. There is a
bigger plan, and even though we see it only in the moment, life
is orchestrated in such a way as to bring us what and whom we
need at a particular time, and when the connection has fulfilled
itself, life brings change. There are things to be cleared out
that are taking up energetic space, be they closets to clear,
attitudes to adjust, or growing up to do. By demonstrating gratitude
for everything that is in your life exactly as it is, you signal
your willingness to receive more and to invoke the understanding
that by putting God first in all things, everything you need is
are asked to stand up and be counted. Bring your voice
forward and express yourself in a capacity of leadership or by
letting your opinions be known. There may be new directions to
take or the necessity to solidify your current position. Be willing
to confront issues related to authority. Align your will with
God’s Will so that you move from a position of enlightened
reasoning rather than ego defensiveness. Strength of character
is called for, and there are situations that will help you define
yourself more clearly. Be ready to make new acquaintances, open
new doors, and prepare for the new cycle that begins in January.
This is a preview, so make it a good one!
Kathleen Jacoby, 2003
how 2003 looks for you
have completed a cycle of nine years
and now open the door to new opportunities and sequence of growth.
The more you released from the past last year, the more room you
made for a dynamic future. Open your mind, be willing to pursue
possibilities, and gather your courage and stamina. It may be
a demanding year, and there will be tests presented related to
your level of maturity. If you allow impulse to rule you, there
can be unpleasant consequences to hasty actions. If you listen
to that still, small voice within that counsels constraint in
the face of temptation, you can further your goals by adhering
to ethics and the Golden Rule.
last yearís initial thrust of planting seeds for the
future, this year itís time for those seeds to germinate.
A lot of inner work is important now, as there can be delays or
frustrations in manifesting everything you want. More time is
required. More data is necessary. Look at the quality of all your
interactions in life, starting with the quality of your own thoughts.
Are you nourishing yourself with positive thinking and good food,
or draining and depleting yourself with doubt, self-criticism,
and junk food? How about your partnerships? Are they supportive
and mutually nurturing, or draining and depleting? Itís time
to weed out what doesnít contribute to beneficial growth.
Strengthen all aspects that reflect good in your life, and develop
a stronger faith in the many provisions you have been given for
the journeyÖeven when you canít see them!
last yearís requirement for more patience and willingness
to wait for right timing, this year is when the creative bloom
comes forward. Find avenues that allow for greater self-expression,
creativity, imagination, playfulness, humor, and childlike delight.
This is a year of attraction, and when you believe in yourself
and possibilities, you draw them to you. When you feel diminished
or invisible, you become a pawn to emotional blackmail. Find a
merry group of friends, a wonderful outlet for your love of beauty,
and bring a gift of optimism to the many who need it during what
might otherwise be a confusing time. You can inspire and motivate,
so choose people and situations that encourage you to do so!
time to look at all the structured situations in your life
from relationships to physical foundations of your body and home
and work. Where are things solid, and where are they in need of
shoring up or restructuring? Where do you feel stuck in a rut,
and where are you open to possibilities for a more dynamic future?
Take a personal assessment of safety issues, including your financial
health. Make practical decisions that protect and enhance your
assets, and consolidate your position so you are not overloaded.
Grapple with issues that bring tangible results, and be willing
to risk a little. When you find yourself coming to a hurdle in
the road, jump over it. As you do, you are not only strengthened,
you are transformed!
a year of change, requiring flexibility and adaptability in
the face of unexpected events or opportunities to expand. It is
time to say ďYes!Ē to life and open to possibilities.
However, that being said, itís also important to take on
manageable projects or events. If you overload yourself, you will
find the year slipping away, as you cannot give enough attention
to any one area. Moodiness and critical attitudes are an indication
that you need to re-think what you are doing and moderate your
activities. Regardless of age, there is an adolescent influence
present that wants to go forward without thought of consequences.
Remember that everything is possible, but it requires follow-through
and concern for the well-being and dignity of others in the equation..
a busy or changeable year, the focus now is on the value of
whatever you are involved with. You will look at traditions, relationships,
service, health, belief systems, and find yourself taking a position
about what you expect from others, and determining if what they
expect from you is appropriate or not. Itís time for a more
mature approach to your life with consideration given to how you
are perceived within your community, home, and at work. What are
you receiving for what you give, and where are you trying to ďfixĒ
things that are not really your responsibility? Family issues
may be center stage including health concerns. However, as you
adopt an attitude of Love as the answer, you will find what you
need to move through any and all circumstances.
last yearís concerns and responsibility, the focus now
is on your deeper needs and soul purpose. Why are you here? What
is the meaning of life, and your part in it? It is low energy
year, and time for rest and recharging your batteries. Any area
of specialized study is helped by this influence, but if you want
to go out and be party animal of the year, you may find your energy
level waning. Itís time to retreat from the world, so to
speak, and find your spiritual sustenance and roots. Taking time
for yourself isnít rejection of others, itís simply
an act of self-preservation. More rest, meditation, time spent
in nature, and other ways of achieving solitude are very helpful
to your overall well being. This can be a rich and full year of
insights, greater knowledge, and reinvigoration. Be good to your
body and your psyche, and youíll be well rewarded as the
energy surrounds you and may bubble up from within. Itís
time to organize, manage, direct, and recognize your life as a
system of dynamic energy. You are the analyst, and itís up
to you to bring greater harmony, more balance, and a feeling of
achievement through your efforts. You can work with others to
accomplish a greater goal, and you can enlist the assistance of
powerful people. As you utilize your abilities and focus your
energy, a great deal is possible. Just remember that you have
multiple needs, not just one. If you over-extend in one area of
your life at the expense of others, you will be out of balance.
The trick to the year is giving to each as is required, leaving
time for rest and enjoyment. Make life a symphony this year, not
a cacophonic mess!
organizational skills and determination to achieve goals
that you set forth for yourself. It’s a month of harvest
for past work well done, or for reaping a dose of reality that
requires you to take care of all things you’ve left undone.
The focus this month is on harmony…inner and outer. Check
out where you overdo, or don’t do enough. Bring things into
balance so that you aren’t focused in one direction at the
expense of everything else in your life. Responsibility may be
part of the deal, and you might be asked to take over management
for someone else or for an estate. No matter what comes, the response
called for is your willingness to deal with whatever is needed
and giving your best in the moment. When you do this, success
