The Essence of Success Network




    Theme this month is "ROMANCE"

    ARIES - 

    This will be a very interesting month.  Problems will cause you to shut down emotionally, but not letting on to what is really going on inside will make the pressure build.  Loosen up and you'll find that love is everywhere.

    TAURUS - 

    You will want to walk away from or forget a painful relationship, but won't be able to.

    GEMINI - 

    Expect an impasse.  A lover is not going to act or call as expected and it's going to annoy you because you will feel that it was thoughtless, inconsiderate, or irrespoonsible.

    CANCER - 

    You will be in a romantic or flirtatious mood, and life will offer several opportunities for romance, but those who try to exercise a claim will have to compete with stiff competition... your work and your "ideal" lover.

    LEO - 

    An admirer or sweetheart will suddenly appear, and a very passionate love affair or romance is in store.  Or, an enigma will be solved, and you will know how much someone has been thinking of you and how much they care.

    VIRGO - 

    You'll be separated from the one you love and feel that the most important thing about your life is gone and can never be replaced.

    LIBRA - 

    Dwelling on the past only causes pain, so you'll release it and let it go.  This could concern someone who's in a legal or law enforcement profession.

    SCORPIO - 

    Many social opportunities will come your way and/or someone will enter your life in whom you wil be very interested  (a professional type person) and you will meet this person very close to your home, if not outside your front door.


    You  will fear that you and your lover are not going to get together, or that even if you did, it would just be a superficial relationship with no real depth or giving of one's self.


    "How do I handle this?"  will be the issue concerning a romantic interest, and because you will meet it with a sense of responsibility for your actions, you will feel very good about yourself, whether your relationship has a future or not.


    You are going to meet or be attractted to a very unusual or "striking" person who will be just as interested in you.

    PISCES - 

    You will be anxious about how things will turn out in the future but hope the will ... however, involvement will be slow.

     Total Eclipse Super Moon – January 31, 2018 

    ECLIPSES are one of the universe’s most potent tools for catalyzing change and augmenting awareness. They occur when a New or Full Moon occurs within a certain distance of the Moon’s Nodes, those points in space that represent our karmic past (South Node) and our evolutionary future (North Node).


    The Lunar Eclipse this Wednesday is an especially significant event. It is a Total Eclipse, amplifying its metaphysical impact. It is also a Supermoon, occurring when the Moon is within a certain distance from the Earth, and increasing its magnetic influence on our planet and our emotions. It is also a blue moon, which simply means it is the second Full Moon within one calendar month — an infrequent event that contributes to our sense of this lunation’s rarity.


    The Lunar Eclipse occurs at 5:26 a.m. PST (1:26 p.m. GMT) on Wednesday, January 31, at 11°37′ Leo.


    AT THE TIME of the eclipse, the Moon will be very close to the North Node. In her book Eclipses and You, astrologer Judith Hill writes that “celestial energy enters” during such North Node eclipses. She recommends that we use this type of eclipse “to either pray or set intentions for pleasant and productive energy and connections to enter your life.”


    If you wish to partake in a group meditation to take advantage of these eclipse energies, my friend, teleclass collaborator, and wellness educator Elsie Kerns is offering a free online Prayer Bowl Blessing and Healing on Wednesday evening. To learn more, please click here.


    THE MOON conjoins the fixed star Minchir during the eclipse, activating and focusing the healing effects of that star. Astrologer Roderick Kidston writes that Minchir represents “the idea of something contaminated which needs to be cleaned out, purified, and restored to wholeness.” He continues:


    “Think of it as the Humpty Dumpty star. Not all the king’s horses and all the king’s men could put the poor smashed egg back together, but Minchir is a star, and full of magic. It can put broken eggs back together, and doesn’t have to scramble them first. Minchir gathers fragments, then cleans and restores them to wholeness, whether the fragmentation is spiritual, emotional, intellectual, or physical.


    THE SUN is of course also a primary player in the eclipse drama, being exactly opposite the Moon. At the time of the Lunar Eclipse, the Sun is aligned with the South Node, Venus, and Juno in Aquarius.


    This line-up indicates that we are in the midst of resolving karmic issues regarding how we approach all types of relationships. Old friendships may resurface, and current partnerships or alliances may change significantly. We are compelled to address matters that have not been resolved, to confront ways in which we have closed our hearts in response to the pain of betrayal, separation, rejection, or abandonment.


    NEPTUNE also plays an important role in the eclipse, being tightly quincunx the Moon and Ceres. Through these aspects, Neptune tells us that the ultimate success of our healing journey depends on our making a very important attitude adjustment. Wherever we have been locked into polarity and comparison, we must move into trust, forgiveness, and acceptance of what is. By so doing, we unlock the door for the Universe — and Minchir — to do their magic.


    As always, the effects of an eclipse are not limited to the day or week in which it occurs. We have already been working with the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for at least the past two weeks, and perhaps a bit longer. And, we can expect related developments to ripple out into the next six months at least, until the next set of eclipses in July and August.


    Remember to call upon higher-level beings for assistance now — and also request for their ascended essence to work with you. You might call upon the highest aspects of Minchir, Luna, Ceres, or Neptune, depending on who you sense will be most helpful in your healing and renewal.




    The theme this month is *SPECIAL GUIDANCE* for all 12 signs.

    1.     ARIES

    Your action, decision, or opinion will be the deciding factor.  If the fruit of the tree is gone, it's time to move on.

    2.     TAURUS

    The situation in which you feel trapped is only temporary.  Your pessimism will soon be replaced by great joy, and someone will be instrumental in changing things for the better.  If what you think or hear is negative, don't believe it.

    3.     GEMINI

    The standstill will be overcome, and/or a reunion is at hand.  You are never alone; all you have to do is reach out.  Be patient, persistent, and diligent in your efforts.

    4.     CANCER

    What you want or need will come to you, and you will be provided for.   Unfortunately, the work you're in insulates or alienates you from social involvement.  However, you can rise above your emotional limitations by remembering that God is your source and works throught many channels and in many ways.  Open your mind to the possibility of a new beginning.

    5.     LEO

    True guidance proves itself,  in that it brings with it the action or ability to carry it out ("and by its fruits shall it be known").  If you're in a quandary over what to do, remember that decisions usually make  themselves when the time is ready.  Your spiritual development will be resumed, and what was missing will be provided.

    6.     VIRGO

    A feeling of emptiness is sometimes necessary.  A cup that's already full has no room for more.  Relinquish self guidance (ego) and allow the Higher to lead.  There are times when earthly desires must be sacfificed in order to make room for the Divine plan.

    7.     LIBRA

    Stay detached and you will be able to perceive the truth in situations, and your impressions or perceptions will later be confirmed.  Don't be afraid to be defenseless or "lay your card on the table".  It can make a difference, because what's consciously or unconsciously being expressed is coming from genuine concern.

    8.     SCORPIO

    People might not get your concepts or see things the way you do, but you won't be left out in the cold.  Someone will come to your aid or give you the opportunity to utilize some your skills or talents.  There's a tremendous spiritual force present which is causing your inner hearing to increase.  In time, what you couldn't see before will be clearly and explicitly revealed.

    9.     SAGITTARIUS

    Change is in the air, and a new approach is at hand.  This could come through a friend who will help you "see the light" or attain a new perspective.  Be willing to wait, but don't compromise your self-esteem or avoid "warning" signs.

    10.    CAPRICORN

    Realize the futility of effort.  If something is meant to be, it will come of it's own accord.  When you stop seeking, searching, or expecting, it will begin to happen.  Since you're not the cause and are powerless to change what is happening, it's futile to be upset.  Be willing to listen to, or act upon,  new ideas.

    11.    AQUARIUS

    Keep folllowing your star and you will get your wish.  You may have to air, but what you want will come.  Things are working out better and faster than you think, and problems that looked like mountains will prove to be molehills.

    12.    PISCES

    Don't bite off more than you can chew in your passion to go forward or you'll find things hard to swallow.  The time is not right and you're not ready or fully prepared.  Don't think you're alone or that you're not being helped.  It's fear and impatience that blinds you from the truth or deafens your receptivity to the spirit.  When it no longer serves your growth to not know something, you will know.

    How To Manage a December Mercury Retrograde 

    The last Mercury Retrograde of 2017 is just around the corner! Not the only planet to have a retrograde period, however, mercury retrograde effects everyone in a typically uniform way – thus why so many are aware of its effects and plan accordingly when it occurs. With so much How to Manage a December Mercury Retrogradehustle and bustle occurring with the holidays in December, planning ahead should help your holiday be less stressful. 

    Mercury affects all types of communication, formal contracts & agreements, and coding. This include, but are not limited to: speaking, listening, learning, researching, editing, selling, buying, negotiating, agreements, manuscripts, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, cell phones, computers, transportation, etc. 

    Why does this affect them? A retrograde is like a sleeping period. It is not fully “alert” to oversee things properly. This retro has a positive though – It helps you to see what has been missed in the past so you can move forward with a stronger foundation. 

     Now that you know how and why a Mercury Retrograde affects you, what can you do to ensure your holiday season has less stress?

    1. Online Gift Purchases: If you like to get your shopping done online, order it before retrograde begins. Because Mercury rules communication, transportation, and computers, there are many possible ways something may go wrong. Ordering early not only helps you get your gift giving completed before the rush, it also helps to avoid possible mercury retrograde issues. 
    2. Repairs: If you’re hosting festivities and been putting off a repair or a tune-up on your appliances, now is the time to hire someone to get them completed. As appliances are part of Mercury’s domain, there is a possibility they may have issues during the retrograde. Don’t forget to include your furnace if you haven’t already had it serviced for the season!
    3. Travel: Mercury retrograde affects so many aspects of traveling. Give yourself extra time, double check depart and arrival times. Expect delays. If you’re traveling by car – make sure the car is ready for travel. 
    4. Invites: If you’re holding a party, get those invites out early and get as much planning done before the retrograde as possible. If you’re going to parties, plan your travel with a Mercury retrograde in mind. Give yourself extra time. 




    The Luckiest Quality Of Each Zodiac Sign 

    1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)   

    Sagittarius is first on this list by default; its ruling planet is Jupiter, which has always been associated with good fortune, generosity, and abundance. For Sagittarius, life itself is a rich tapestry of priceless experiences and adventures.



    God Assigning Duties To Each Zodiac Sign Is Best Thing You Will Read Today 

    To you Aries

    I give the seed first that you might have the honor of planting it. That for every seed you plant one million more will multiply in your hand. You will not have time to see the seed grow, for everything you plant creates more that must be planted. You will be the first to penetrate the soil of people’s minds with My Idea. But it is not your job to nourish the Idea, nor to question it. Your life is action, and the only action I ascribe to you is to begin making men aware of My Creation. For your good work I give you the virtue of Self-Esteem.

    To you Taurus

    I give the power to build the seed into substance. Your job is a great one requiring patience, for you must finish all that has been started, or the seeds will be wasted to the wind. You are not to question nor change your mind in the middle, nor to depend on others for what I ask you to do. For this I give you the gift of Strength. Use it wisely.

    To you Gemini


    I give the questions without the answers, so that you may bring to all an understanding of what people see around them. You will never know why people speak or listen, but in your quest for the answer you will find my gift of Knowledge.

    To you Cancer

    I ascribe the task of teaching people about emotion. My Idea is for you to cause them laughter and tears so that all they see and think develops fullness from inside. For this I give you the gift of Family that your fullness may multiply.

    To you Leo

    I give the job of displaying my Creation in all its brilliance to the world. But you must be careful of pride and always remember that it is My Creation, not yours. For if you forget this, people will scorn you. There is much joy in the job I give you if you but do it well. For this you are to have the gift of Honor.  

    To you Virgo

    I ask for an examination of all that humankind has done with my Creation. You are to scrutinize their ways sharply and remind them of their errors, so that through them my Creation may be perfected. For doing this I give you the gift of Purity of Thought.

    To you Libra

    I give the mission of service, that humans will be mindful of their duties to others. That they may learn cooperation, as well as the ability to reflect on the other side of their actions. I will put you everywhere there is discord, and for your efforts I will give you the gift of Love.

    To you Scorpio

    I give a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of the other people, but I do not permit you to speak about what you learn. Many times you will be pained by what you see, and in your pain you will turn away from Me and forget that it is not I, but the perversion of My Idea, that is causing your pain. You will see so much of humankind that you will come to know them as animals, and will wrestle so much with the animal instincts in yourself that you will lose your way; but when you finally come back to Me, Scorpio, I have for you the supreme gift of Purpose.   

    To Sagittarius

    I ask that you make people laugh, for amidst their misunderstanding of My Idea they become bitter. Through laughter you are to give people hope, and through hope turn their eyes back to Me. You will touch many lives if but for a moment, and you will know the restlessness in every life you touch. To you Sagittarius I give the gift of Infinite Abundance that you may spread wide enough to reach every corner of darkness and bring it Light.

    To you Capricorn

    I ask the toil of your brow, that you might teach people to work. Your task is not an easy one, for you will feel all of humankind’s labors on your shoulders; but the yoke of your burdens contains the Responsibility of your Brothers and Sisters, which I put into your hands.

    To you Aquarius

    give the concept of the future that people might see other possibilities. You will have the pain of loneliness, for I do not allow you to personalize My Love. But for turning people’s eyes to new possibilities I give the gift of Freedom that in your liberty you may continue to serve humankind wherever they need you.

    To you Pisces

    I give the most difficult task of all. I ask you to collect all the world’s sorrows and return them to Me. Your tears are to be ultimately My Tears. The sorrow you will absorb is the effect of people’s misunderstanding of My Idea, but you are to give them compassion that they may try again. For this the most difficult task of all, I give you the greatest gift of all. You will be the only one of my twelve Children to understand Me. This gift of Understanding is for you, Pisces, for when you try to spread it to humankind they will not listen.








    IN AQUARIUS (January 20–February 19): With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, the sign 
that governs relationships, 
friendships are put at risk. Petty 
squabbles, misunderstandings, and miscommunications abound. Know who your friends are.

    IN PISCES (February 20–March 20): Foggy thinking,
 daydreams, and escapism are 
the norm; day-to-day realities
 confound otherwise clear heads
 when Mercury, the planet that rules logic, is in Pisces, which governs illusion. Practice creative pursuits—writing, dancing, photography, film, or painting.

    IN ARIES (March 21–April 20): Expect to be frustrated and frazzled. Assertive,
 impulsive Aries wants to move
 ahead, and all of the energy is going backward. Watch what you say and how you say it. Pay attention to what people say to you; you might be pleasantly surprised.

    IN TAURUS (April 21–May 20): Take time to formulate your thoughts. Taurus, an unhurried sign, slows down the 
mental processes. He also governs banking, so delay money matters. Review financial matters, and position yourself for growth.

    IN GEMINI (May 21–June 20): Because Gemini 
rules communications, be prepared for miscommunications
 when Mercury is in this sign. Expect lots of phone calls or none, and lost or misplaced mail. You may not articulate clearly, and gossip abounds. Old friends may reconnect.

    IN CANCER (June 21–July 22): Expect annoyances 
at home with baking, gardening,
 and household duties under domesticated Cancer. Complete repair projects that weren’t finished or done correctly.

    IN LEO (July 23–August 22): Avoid speculative investments. It is not a good time to
 buy and sell or do any trading.
 Instead, analyze your investment
 portfolio. Use your know-how and advisory skills to help friends and associates.

    IN VIRGO (August 23–September 22): Challenging situations arise, especially in the 
workplace. Expect product delays and equipment breakdowns,
 as well as crankiness among coworkers under finicky, detail-oriented Virgo. Double-check your work before you call it finished.

    IN LIBRA (September 23–October 22): Accept your physical
 attributes; do not have a makeover. Indecision reigns, so limit
 purchases—or risk returning
 them. Libra, representing beauty, grace, charm, and diplomacy, is out of balance. Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate.

    IN SCORPIO (October 23–November 22): Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware.
 Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive, 
and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary.

    IN SAGITTARIUS (November 23–December 21): It is not a time 
to travel, so reschedule or expect
 delays, lines, and lost directions.
 Instead, take care of local affairs.
 Patience and a sense of humor are needed.

    IN CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19): Avoid buying, 
selling, or renting real estate un
der Capricorn, the sign that governs property matters. Expect
 problems with paperwork, packing, and movers. Reunite with family or vacation at home.



    Mercury comes from the Latin word merx, or mercator, which means merchant. Mercury is the name given by the ancient Romans to the Greek mythological god Hermes.

    Mercury is depicted as a male figure having winged sandals and a winged hat, indicating the ability to travel quickly. He was the official messenger of the ancient gods and goddesses and, as such, governed communications.

    In 1782, Mercury became the first symbol of the United States’ fledgling postal service. Today, he is recognized as an icon of an international floral delivery service as well as the official symbol of the postal service of Greece.

    In astrology, all of the planet’s attributes are rooted in ancient Greek and Roman mythology. In that context, Mercury is the god of travelers, literature, poetry, merchants, and thieves. He is cunning and clever and witty at a moment’s notice. But he is also recognized as a trickster and thief, prone to misbehavior.

    Rare Astrol logicaEvent: January 7th 2017 All Planets Are Moving Direct


    Wave states: “Now, here in this moment, from our geo-centric view, our entire solar system, moving together, in the same direction, like a flowing cosmic river, all traveling towards this one direction.  From the position of the Sun or Earth’s perspective, All Planets in Direct Motion represents an organic, holistic, synchronous, harmonious group passage through the endless universe.

    An APDM cycle is definitely one of hope for the future. It’s uniquely a time where the earth’s perspective becomes like the Sun. Where the vibration of the solar system can provide an extraordinary kind of cosmic assistance to any endeavor created to benefit, rather than to hinder, human life on earth. Where the whole planet can be energized by cosmic fuel rather than fossil fuels.

    The auspicious timing of APDM 2017 is recommended by astrologers for successful mergers, marriages, large acquisitions, charity events, physical operations, inaugurations, launch a new business, birth a new president and anything else where one desires a positive result.

    APDM is furthermore considered to be a time when the universe is in a state of natural order with all the planets are traveling forward.”

    Starting January 7th and going through February 6th, 2017, all of the major planets will be moving direct (forward). Ancients saw this as a time of great fortune and a very opportune time

    Stephanie “Wave” Forest is the first known astrologer first to publish articles, teach online courses and present slide show lectures on both the occurrence and potential of All Planets in Direct Motion (APDM).

    Wave states: “Now, here in this moment, from our geo-centric view, our entire solar system, moving together, in the same direction, like a flowing cosmic river, all traveling towards this one direction.  From the position of the Sun or Earth’s perspective, All Planets in Direct Motion represents an organic, holistic, synchronous, harmonious group passage through the endless universe.

    An APDM cycle is definitely one of hope for the future. It’s uniquely a time where the earth’s perspective becomes like the Sun. Where the vibration of the solar system can provide an extraordinary kind of cosmic assistance to any endeavor created to benefit, rather than to hinder, human life on earth. Where the whole planet can be energized by cosmic fuel rather than fossil fuels.

    The auspicious timing of APDM 2017 is recommended by astrologers for successful mergers, marriages, large acquisitions, charity events, physical operations, inaugurations, launch a new business, birth a new president and anything else where one desires a positive result.

    APDM is furthermore considered to be a time when the universe is in a state of natural order with all the planets are traveling forward.”

    This time period, which lasts almost 1 month, is started off by Mercury stationing direct and will end with Jupiter stationing retrograde on February 6th, 2017. So, what then is the meaning of Mercury starting off the APDM in January? Wave writes:

    Let us borrow some phrases for a moment from the shamanic / astrology perspective where Mercury is symbolized as a quick, versatile planet that can easily traverse the Upper World, the Middle World and the Lower World, in just one instant. It doesn’t stay for long in any of the realms as it is mostly a guide, temporarily, an information seeker and a messenger between the realms.

    How about the meaning of Jupiter ending the APDM in February? Wave states:

    Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius and Mercury before it stations direct will be in the sign of Sag so right away we see a symbolic celestial correspondence between the two.  Both Mercury and Jupiter experience an enhanced energy of the other. Note also that Jupiter opposes Uranus through the entire APDM event which may spark a sudden totally unexpected (Uranus) and huge (Jupiter) altercation or possibly even a physical resonance shaking up the forces of the Earth.

    Without doubt, this APDM 2017, and every single one of the next APDM events leading up to 2022, compels us to employ our best collective focus to access the promise for birthing a new world, a new nation and a new life.



    The mystical intent of APDM is WORLD WIDE PEACE AND ABUNDANCE for ALL. 

    This is exactly how we keep the dream alive – our collective dream, for international peace and well being for everyone where we each have more than enough to share. We recite our APDM manifesto meditations daily, and we collectively work to assist the evolution of consciousness to move forward, keeping in mind that the timing of our intent is naturally backed up by all the planets moving in direct motion.

    With that in mind, we have created an Event on Facebook that details the plan for a synchronized meditation each day throughout the nearly month-long APDM time period. The meditation will begin each day at 1pm Mountain Time and go for 30 minutes. If you are not able to make that time work, please do not worry and simply meditate or pray whenever you are able to make it.

    Use this time to visualize your dreams, wishes and intentions as well as visualizing and intending peace and abundance for all. Because Facebook only allows events to take place for a maximum of 2 weeks at a time, you’ll notice that the event says it goes from January 7th-21st.
