“Breaking Molds”

Yup, Mercury just went direct on Sunday. Folks will cram their empty social media boxes with joyful cheers about it. But that might be the least interesting part of the week.

The real draws are the Sun-Jupiter match-up by a tense square on Wednesday night and the first full moon of the year. Both the Sun and Jupiter yell for us to become enthusiastic about our growth, expansion, and whatever makes us shine. We have to be willing to go bigger. The problem erupts when we have no idea about what that means. Many confuse that for drama.

Drama: making a scene when all you have to do is what’s most necessary, like leave or say something simply. Bigger: stretching your expectations or capacity to see, be, or do more. Choose to stretch, to break molds.

The Cancer full moon bears a similar message. Cancer, as a sign, signifies how we create comfort, security, and intimacy. It’s homey. With the Sun opposing it from Capricorn, we have a breaking open of those comforts and hominess. The mold is safe…and suffocating.

Of course, this can surface all our fears. Can we keep the promises and intentions of the new moon from a few weeks ago? Hell, can we do from the ones we had from last year? That’s when you have to ask if you’re attempting to get new by using the same old mold?

That’s how you work the magic of this moment. Anything else is one definition of insanity: doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. Be sane. Break some molds!

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Others might be more tentative about cracking out of their shells. You likely have to be told to slow down and pace yourself. There’s a reason why we don’t spring into the world as our mature selves. First, that would be hell on our mothers. Second, we’d miss important steps in appreciating our minute changes and growth. Don’t worry about making up lost time. Instead, think a little more about what you’re anxious to shed. It’s not that you won’t have to lose something at some point. But the when and how are important for the right mix for growth and evolution.

Affirmation:
I pace what I shed in my life for optimal growth.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Surround yourself with people, sayings, and things that inspire you. Avoid just going through the motions. You haven’t been working hard this last month or so just for that. There are, of course, things that you must do. Perhaps these things are more resistant to inspiration. But you might have fewer of those things than you think. You won’t know, though, if you’re not paying attention to your feelings. Let your feelings roll out like fabric. Then you can use your mind to identify and perhaps trim what just doesn’t fit how you want to fashion your daily life.

Affirmation:
I create the inspiring life I want by discarding or transforming tasks that drain me.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz once wrote, “The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.” Be among the wise…and happier for it. The key, though, is choosing who and what to forgive. There’s no sense forgiving someone when you really haven’t. You have to be honest about how much mercy you have before you can offer it. But it’s also foolish to deny that compassion when you feel it. That’s when you can open up and move on with a friend (or even stranger) who has slighted you somehow.

Affirmation:
I wisely choose to forgive when I have found the mercy to do so.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

According to sales experts, the real trick to selling is building relationships and stimulating vision. No one ever just sells a TV. He or she sells an experience of watching something important. You’re probably emphasizing the product over vision or the relationship when you “oversell” something. Worse, you’re more enthusiastic about your own wants and needs than listening. You don’t have to “sell” anyone on anything, even if you’re not in the actual business of selling. Share from the heart, and you’ll do more for yourself or another than you’d expect.

Affirmation:
I share from the heart to build relationships and enthusiastic vision.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Attempt to put into practice something you’ve only previously yakked about. Start small. Your first time on ice skates doesn’t require you to do a figure eight. You’re called now to get out of your head and more into your body, where you belong most. Full moons are for manifesting, not drawing up beautiful “what-ifs.” Work with what you got and feel out the rest. Now that Mercury’s moved forward, you can too, bit by bit. But nothing happens if you don’t start it.

Affirmation:
I put my whole self, bit by bit, into something my mouth has only talked about.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

Your estimation of a recent bad turn of events is likely off. This presents an amazing opportunity. (Bear with me.) Use even one surprising thread of hope to boost your spirits. Once you’ve seen conditions as they are, not the worse case scenario, stick to the facts, not your fears, and do what’s most needed. You could also stand to be more grateful. Sometimes appreciating little blessings is the boost we need to rise.

Affirmation:
I see things as they are and then I can do more than I would expect.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

It takes time to see how our expectations make something gleam brighter than it truly does. This doesn’t mean it has no shine or that it’s not worth keeping. Don’t dash yourself into despair. And there’s no need to lash out at anyone else for broken hopes. Life responds better to a steady hand and a clear mind. This is the moment you look honestly at something (or someone) and entertain options. Walking away is certainly an option. But don’t make that your first one.

Affirmation:
I scoop up better options from broken expectations.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Do what you need to do to stay pumped. Use affirmations. Watch your most inspiring videos or films. Put on your most kick-ass playlist. Then get to work. Don’t talk smack. Even to yourself. You’ll know you’re talking smack when there’s no real evidence at present for what you claim. “I’m the best in this business!” is not the same as “I am a leader in my field.” Be hyped, not sell it. No need. Your excellence will be your calling card.

Affirmation:
II stay high-minded without big hype.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

A general rule of good business is to re-invest your profits into what grows the business. But there’s a caveat that many folks miss. Invest with a clear idea of your bottom line and how much you want to grow. Investing $2500 in a laptop when you only need $500 for the kind of work you do isn’t a sound investment. Before you sink time or money into something or someone, ask whether the investment matches up with the yield you need or want. It might not just yet.

Affirmation:
I wisely invest the right amount of money, time, and energy into what I expect to grow.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

It might be hard to find and keep your work groove. Resist the impulse to bag the pursuit altogether. Everything seems shinier than what it is. And that’s part of the problem. You want to tackle multiple things at once. Perhaps even con yourself into thinking that you’re actually multi-tasking. You’re probably not. Tap your creativity to stay grounded. Use different colored pens to take notes in a meeting, for example. The more you infuse energy into a task with flair and concentration, the easier and faster you’ll get things done.

Affirmation:
I fuse creativity with concentration to stay on task, not feel task-mastered.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

There’s always some fact or issue that can mess up a tidy worldview or philosophy. For Darwin, it was questioning how could the world be only 6,000 years old as Christian scholars said when finding older artifacts? Neo had the red pill. You might stumble on your own jarring moment. That’s when you’ll have to “grow” your belief or your faith. That will likely require either time to research, reflect, or both. But don’t be stubborn and stay convinced you’re right before you know you are.

Affirmation:
I grow my beliefs about how the world works rather than attempt to shrink the world to fit my beliefs.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

You’re not in the game of life alone. That means, at least, two important things. You don’t have to shoulder the responsibility of excellence alone. You have a team of a colleagues, friends, or associates to help you. It also means that you can’t hog “the ball.” Think about how you can spread the shine rather than bask in the glory. Generosity of spirit, strength or $$$ will go a long way to helping you do and feel good. Pass the ball, and the game will be a lot more fun.

Affirmation:
I share the challenge to accomplish more with people I support and who support me.
