“We are What We Think”
I began this blog so many times, yet my thoughts took many detours and I could not stay focused. I tried everything from almonds, meditation, even a good night sleep. Yet, I did not listen to my own advice that was right in front of my face which was Mercury Retrograde would cause writers block starting December 01, 2016 to January 27, 2017 (read more about here).
As I waited Christmas Day arrived and my patience had the best of me. I was awoken Christmas morning at 5 am with my thoughts running wild and could not sit still. I walked my dog down the street, which most of the time is busy, crowded, and loud with cars passing by. I then realized that the mistiness of the morning dew, and the stillness of the streets, is exactly how we will begin our passage through January of 2017.
Even though I wanted reminisce about what we have lost in 2016, and what we should be thankful for as part of the EndNote to my predictive blog of 2016 (read about it here), I have decided to talk about these in a separate blog as politics and sentiments have already plagued the media and the topics of our daily conversations. In my deepest thoughts all I can relate 2017 to is a song by Ziggy Marley called “Changes”. His lyrics ripple through my visions of 2017 as if knows exactly what I am about to say.
There’s so much beauty in every breath that we take
Oh, tell me, can you relate?
Needs of the many and the wants of the few
You can find religion in the freedom you choose
There’s so much hurt all over the place
And I can tell by the look on your face
And there’s one thing that we’ve got to say
(Danny man say, brighten up your day and never feel no weight)
For ordinary people now…
Every month in 2017 is about promoting mankind to get closer to significant changes. I have been talking about changes for a long time as well as history repeating. We are losing immovability and firmness in our environment and in ourselves. The Earth is shifting and this will bring about change. As a result, these changes will bring about massive emotional and planetary shifts both internally and externally. These will be natural changes to our relationships with ourselves and the world around us.
January will begin with the beautiful love of Venus Pisces. We will crave this love during the introspection time of Mercury retrograde that will enter Sagittarius and Station on January 08, 2017. But it will not completely straighten out yet (read more about it here).
The full moon Sagittarius/Capricorn on January 12, 2017 first must grace our skies and Mercury retrograde must enter Capricorn. This is where Mercury was when he first began his journey on December 1, 2016. Now that the sun enters the friendly Capricorn/Aquarius our first non-political President in a long time will be inaugurated our 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017 which is also the day after the sun enters Aquarius. Finally, when the new moon is in Capricorn/Aquarius, Mercury retrograde will leave to go into his own la la land and set us free to speak what we mean, and boy will we.
With Mars in Pisces/Aries on January 28, 2017, men, especially, say what they mean. Perhaps women will remain quite for the moment. This will not change any of the hardships for Scorpios, and their brothers and sisters who carry Scorpio in their charts, with difficult lessons until April 06, 2017 (according to VPN not Western). Also, it will even glorify Virgos and earth signs while Jupiter remains in their sign and they are able to speak their minds.
I am sure by now you are wondering why it is that there are two signs associated with the transits and transformation. Those who are aware with the association of the VPA charts understand that the Sun/Moon make up a gray picture where the true answers lay and where life begins. Humanity is an evolutionary transformation gene, therefore we change with the time and history is the string of lessons in which we evolve, transmute, and transform. This will be an absolute in February.
February is probably will be the toughest month for many people for those who have any Fire or water in their chart. Some will have natural endings others will begin their spiritual journey therefore they may have to leave behind people places or things that no longer serve them purpose. This can be tough as separation and tough decisions are difficult for all of us.
Venus joins the freedom of speech on February 1st through Pisces/Aries; and they too will now speak their minds. All of humanity will be as direct as can be and the world will be changing as we know it. The structure of the family which is represented by Leo, spirituality represented by Pisces and freedom and innovation are all part of this revolution. However, Virgos will not be able to speak for too long as Jupiter according to VPA will be retrograding on February 04 through June 9th, 2017 which means everything including their money may slow down as they see it. This also means that they have to concentrate more on family matters.
On February 10, 2017, we will have our first eclipse. This will be a Lunar Eclipse with a full moon in Leo/Aquarius revisiting topics of 1998 and 2008. On February 14, 2017 be careful with money; you might lose it or the way financial transactions take place you may be confused by them. So if it does not seem real or too good to be true it probably is.
Within 2 weeks, on February 26, 2017, a New Moon Pisces (VPA states that it is an eclipse in Aquarius due to the date) will close their series of eclipses. The topics would be concerning issues from 1979 and 2015. They will now close the door to something and open another door to something else. As far as I can see there is not another eclipse scheduled for Pisces until 2034. However, this does not mean the chaos and unexpected things will stop because of the eclipses.
This closes the chapter of eclipse series in Pisces that began March 20, 2015. The series as follows, March 20, 2015 (read about it here), March 8, 2016 (read about it here), September 16, 2016 (read about it here) and the last February 26, 2017. These series are also reflecting back to the 2008 and 1998. Therefore, this is strike 3 if you are a Pisces and you have not made significant strides on the things you may need to change, then you may not receive any more chances. Now the fiddler plays.
March may also not be so easy for many fire and earth signs as luck and speed slow down for the natives.
Beginning of March Jupiter, the planet of expansion which is retrograding in Virgo, will shake up Virgos to make sure they are awake. It’s a reminder that Virgos must be on their toes. While Venus is reconsidering issues of the past and Mars is entering Aries/Taurus both are very stubborn and powerful planets. As the full moon in Pisces/Virgo will end a chapter for both, the new moon in Pisces/Aries will trigger Mercury retrograde to begin its passage backwards in time with the 2nd, or rather 1st, 2017 retrograde. Mercury retrograde is still impacting Earth planets in 2017 but more so, Fire planets.
Mercury retrograde will begin March 23, 2017 evening in Aries; it will station on April 9, 2017 in Taurus and begin to move forwards, not completing its cycle until almost May 23, 2017. The last day of March could present money matters which may consume people and possibly causing battles or confusion.
Even though Venus is retrograding, it is entering the friendly and spiritual sign of Aquarius/Pisces. At the same time, the planet of expansion and dreaminess, Neptune, may make people spend more than they want to.
My dear Scorpio, listen On April 06, 2017! This is the last leg of your journey, from April 06 through June 21st and you must finish all karmic lessons and unfinished business now as Saturn is coming to an end. You have this time while Saturn is retrograde to think about everything but don’t act yet. Read more about what you have been going through since 2012 here.
On April 06 Mercury Retrograde stations in Taurus while the beautiful full moon in Aries/Libra lights the sky. Venus loves it where it is, as it is now direct, and now Capricorn is in deep thought again when Pluto is now remembering the way things were before. Plus for Taurus when the new moon blesses them. But I dont know how lucky it will be when four planets still retrograding. Mercury is now going back to Aries and Gemini is being given an opportunity to be strong, but they can’t talk. Once again Scorpio shakes and rattles; as I said, the grand finale is almost here. Understand though, that at the end of April, Saturn is bringing some difficulties to you. You may get tired, sick, or it may seem that life is bringing you down.
The burden of Mercury is slowly lifted on the 21st and 22nd of May. However, the truth of too much time off, for those that are suffering from Saturn transits, is in your face. The full moon in Scorpio will make sure one door definitely closes because something really has to give, dear Libra/Scorpio. The summer is almost here and it is pretty obvious by the first super new moon on May 25 in Gemini.
Though this super moon will be nothing like the one we had in November of 2016, and hardly will be seen this will definitely be a new beginning for Gemini, and well deserved.
As I always have said, something ends and something new begins on a full moon especially on a super moon.
The shackles are now being released for many, just in time to enjoy the summer. Mars is entering Gemini/Cancer. While Gemini’s like power, Cancers don’t really care. Jupiter is shining bright with the help of Saturn; so both earth and fixed signs, or those that have Virgo/Scorpio and Libra in their chart, will be benefited.
While Venus is glorified in Taurus, our first micro super full moon enters the skies on June 09 in Sagittarius and Virgos are doing the happy dance when Jupiter finally goes direct. However, Neptune is now direct and many people that have Neptune strong in their chart may seem confused. None of this will really matter to Cancers as they love to bask in the sun and talk.
On June 21, 2017, those suffering through Saturn transit will be so happy to now put into action the unfinished business which they have until October to complete. The Super New moon on June 23, 2017 will grace them to ensure this is done with all the blessings they deserve.
There are many people who are also going through a Chiron transit; especially if they are baby boomers or reaching their 50’s. Chiron is now having those affected look back at the past in the first day of July by going retrograde.
On July 09, 2017 the full moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn will grace us while Mars and the Sun make their aspects in Cancer/Leo. Just as we are getting comfortable in the summer, the irritable Mercury has to come and ruin it for many of us. He will come and knock on the door on July 21/22, 2017 in Leo. He will finish the month of July transit into the month of August bothering humanity the entire time.
Many of us will be itching if it is not the full moon then it is Chiron. If it is neither than it is mercury. If not it is all and the heat will be incredible. We might have to crank it up!
As I said in February that it would be one of the most difficult months the worst month will be August. Between the retrogrades, the eclipses, the heat and the hustle and bustles of the back to school and work schedule it may cause fatigue, restlessness and possibly some anger issues.
Now that fall is here, Mercury is in motion and we are now looking at the past more intensely than ever. We are now also considering the way we spend and save money. But at what cost and what freedom?
The full moon in Leo/Aquarius, as well as the lunar eclipse in Aquarius, will test our freedom and see to it that anything that traps us must leave our lives on August 7, 2017. Due to the lunar calendar (VPN states it would be considered an eclipse in Capricorn/Cancer). I would love to know how Cancerians and Capricorn hold up during this time. I just hope that no one acts on any impulses during retrograde as Mercury Retrograde stations in Virgo on the 12th.
Within 10 days the new moon in Leo, with the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, is the solution that family will find your freedom for you on August 21, 2017. While those suffering from Saturn backlash will be eased as Saturn is now direct.
The month of August and for the next 6 months the focus will be on the freedom, spirituality and the power of family.
The leaves are now changing colors, the air is fluctuating, and it seems that days are still long because of retrograde. Virgo loves it when Mars is in their sign as they have the power. While the full moon brightens the streets for Virgo’s, Venus makes it all pretty and nice.
Well, of course, Mercury decides that he will leave Virgos where he feels so comfortable and station direct in back into Leo where he first began his journey and wait.
This is because on September 14, 2017, Virgos have to hand over the Jupiter torch to their brother and sister Libras, as well as pass along the lessons they have learned. Let’s hope that Virgos have planted all the seeds, and did all they needed to do, because Jupiter may not be back for a long time (read about the gifts of Jupiter with Virgo). On the other hand, Capricorn is seeing things clearly now with Pluto direct and Halloween near.
Smell of pumpkin spice is so close that it’s almost like autumn is already here. The full moon in Aries/Libra will smile bright for Aries in the beginning of the month. Meanwhile, Jupiter is shining bright for Libra (per VPA) and Libras love Mars as they will welcome Diwali for many Hindus and their special moon.
On October 26, 2017, Libra/Scorpios finally sit down at the footsteps and look behind, to the sides, and in the front, waiting for a brick or the entire house to fall but there is no more falling down; no more slaps, at least until way past 2030. Your Saturn transit is finally over, yes it is read about the pain and the now there should be something left at your door in a few months (read about it here).
But remember Scorpio if you make the same mistakes it will burn and bleed worse than it ever did.
As far as Sagittarius this is your turn, I really don’t feel Saturn has to be bad it is all in the attitude and as I always have said, I got married during my Saturn transit and look what you will learn (read about it here)
The only thing I suggest is to write a journal about the things you experienced and bury it somewhere. Hopefully someone will find it long after we are gone so that they can understand it was the most difficult journey of our lifetime.
The full moon in Aries/Taurus will brighten the beginning of winter by bringing some light to gloomy days while Mercury prepares to come and haunt us again. Uranus is causing some confusion to early born Sagittarius’ who are now feeling some nudges of Saturn.
Neptune is now direct so we are no longer feeling as if we are floating on water. However, Mercury retrograde is preparing for the journey through Gemini/Sagittarius on November 13/14, 2017 and continuing through the end of November.
Perhaps it will give us just enough time to slow down and enjoy some precious family time with loved ones and appreciate all that we have accomplished in 2017.
Our last super full moon will place a bright light on the street and shadow our footsteps in the cold and misty weather on December 3 with the full moon in Gemini/Sagittarius. At the same time, stationing Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius. Chiron is now direct which is telling us that we are getting old and facing a reality check of we have, and need, to do.
On December 18, 2017 our last Micro super new moon will black out everything and the sky, as we know, will go void with the universe questioning us. Those questions will conclude and the answers will let you talk after you have worried about your future through Mercury stationing in Capricorn.
After you decide and understand you must love to work hard when Venus enters Capricorn on Christmas day. With the new economy, what will you do differently in 2018? What will you sacrifice? Love, money, prestige, power or something else?

As you may have noticed I am writing this during retrograde and I am sure I will revise this after January 08, 2017.
Next year will be like walking on wire but on a bridge with both poles and perfect cement. With disturbance on the phone while on a perfect connection, everyone will be affected. The world we know today will not be the world we will embrace in 2018.
