Happy NEW Calendar Year, Dear ASTRO~NEWS Reader!

 

The first week of JAN 2019 starts with a Wave of COSMIC FIREWORKS!
For us to wake us up, leave the old and heavy Worlds behind, get into action, step up into our Authority, and be FREE!

The line-up itself is worth dedicating a Special ASTRO~NEWS to it.
This is to a great head start into the New Year!

 

The links lead to ASTRO~NEWS Blog posts that expand on the themes. 

DEC 31 / JAN 1
MARS enters ARIES –
Let your Inner Activist / Activator / Super Hero/ine Emerge and come into gears.

 

JAN 1 / 2
The (now ‘climbing’) CAP SUN passes SATURN –
Beyond fear and other ‘hindrances’ and ‘obstacles’, step UP into your Conscious Authority, and lead YOUR Life.

 

JAN 3 / 4
MERCURY at the very end of SAG in square with CHIRON at the very end of PISCES, and in Spirited Fire Trine with URANUS retro / stat. at the very end of ARIES –
Wisdom and Perspective, Compassion and Connection are the Medicine for Freedom to be authentic.

 

JAN 4 – 23
MERCURY in CAP –
Plan with Priorities – from your own Authority & Agency.

 

JAN 5 / 6
NEW MOON / Partial Solar Eclipse (on the Lunar South Node) in mid-CAP, with SATURN and PLUTO –
Let the ‘Old Empire’ Expire!
The end of an Old restricting and controlling Era, making room for the New.
More about it in the next ASTRO~NEWS.

 

JAN 6
URANUS in late ARIES goes from retro (since Aug 7) to direct – starting a RETRO FREE phase until early March!
BE the Revolution & Liberation. Experimentation, no Expectation.

 

JAN 7
VENUS comes out of SCO, crosses over the ‘Phoenix Point’, and rises in SAG (flying there until FEB 3) –
Cultivate & Attract Inspiration and Abundance!

 

JAN 8
MERCURY in CAP squares MARS in ARIES –
Instead of fighting with the ‘old & told’, matter-of-factly state what you DO want, move forward, and go for it.

 

…more cosmic no boredom dynamics to come…

I leave it here, with this brief intro for the Start into 2019.
You’re welcome to read up about MARS in ARIES and MERCURY in CAP in my ASTRO~NEWS Blog.
In the next few days, I also add posts for the CAP NEW MOON / PSE on JAN 5, for URANUS direct (on JAN 6), and for VENUS into SAG (from JAN 7 on).
Stay tuned.

 

As these energies support (or rather: make evident and inevitable) a release of the ‘Old Empire’ (can you identify it within?) it’s also wise to find closure by honouring what it represented and has shown us.
Stepping into our Authority, Agency, and Authenticity is the natural, liberating consequence.

The year starts with the call to be consistently in our conscious authority – basically the grown-ups (SUN / SATURN) which implies dropping judgment, excuses, blame, etc. and taking responsibility for our Life.
Not always easy but simpler and clearly rewarding.

NEPTUNE in PI and SATURN in CAP (both Planets in their natural Zodiac signs) will be in mutually supportive sextile in 2019 (with 3 exact alignments), which adds Compassion and being open to receive (rather than doing it ‘the hard way’ – which would be more of the same of the Old) – a cosmic Blessing to continuously release, receive, re-orient.

 

All the Best for a fresh & free Start into / as the NEW!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers – extended to JAN 6 (Epiphany)! – to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!

MERCURY into CAP (Jan 4 – 23): Communication from Integrity & Planning with Priorities

31 Dec

Dear Astro~News Reader,

the MERCUR-ial Messenger as SAGittarian Visionary turns into a Planner – great alignment with the start into the calendar year.
MERCURY moves over the Integrity Point into CAP on JAN 4.

Voyager Tarot Card IX of Wands – Integrity. Crystal activation and photo by Melanie

Communicating from Integrity comes up now – also in connection with the Partial Solar Eclipse in CAP on JAN 5.

No more putting up with BS, disrespect, ‘takers’, abusers, and thoughts / communication that drain or waste our time and energy.
Being clear and stating simply what’s in Integrity for you and what isn’t. Plus, walking away from a situation can speak louder than 1000 words. Walk, instead of talking / trying to educate them about what they’re not cap-able of…


CAP rules Time, and working wisely with Time and Resources.
Yet, with PLUTO now in CAP (2009 – 2023) our experience of Time is changing, and we tapping into Deep Time, and multi-dimensional time lines. Plus, Resources have a big priority.

 

MERCURY being now far away from retro (next phase only in March) helps with staying on track, and doing the mental part, when it comes to timing, planning, resources, and priorities.
Plus, from JAN 6 on, NO Planets will be retro until early March
(energetically from mid-Jan to end of Feb).

All good to go, moving forward and building what matters most, in early 2019?

MERCURY will be in CAP from JAN 4 – 23, just behind the CAP SUN.
The Messenger-Planner will meet other VIP CAP ‘Players’ and connect with other Planets from different Zodiac realms – which of course informs the planning process…

 


What Time is it? The Sun dial in Beacon Hill Park IS pretty exact. On a walk last Summer with  my Swiss friend I asked him to check his watch, and indeed, with Daylight Savings Time considered (4:15 pm on the watch, 3:15 pm on the Sun dial) it matched up…

 

With MERCURY in CAP in the New Year it’s an excellent Time to:

 

  • Do a realistic Inventory of the Old Year.
    What worked well?
    What were the lessons?
    What was worth putting energy into?
    What takes up too much of your time and energy?
    What would you do in a better way next time?
    Where’s the ‘been there, done that’ factor?
    What needs cropping and pruning, to free up resources and time?

 

  • Turn your SAG Visions into Goals & Priorities.
    What’s possible with the CAPacities and resources you already have?
    What can you manifest this year?
    What might be a challenge but rewarding when you stay committed and consistent?
    Where to you need to carve out time to make sure this goal becomes a priority?

 

  • Don’t do the Planning the ‘Old Way’.
    Find your own Authority, Agency, and Freedom.
    MERCURY will connect with the Partial Solar Release Eclipse in CAP on JAN 5 / 6, pass SATURN (JAN 13), PLUTO  (JAN 18) and the Lunar South Node (JAN 22), plus square MARS (JAN 8), and URANUS in ARIES (JAN 23) – hence:

    Forget about old style ‘resolutions’ that are usually short lived and not sustaining.
    Be realistic (MERCURY – SATURN) about your patterns and CAPacities.
    Access Your your true Agency (MERCURY – MARS – SATURN), and Inner Power to change patterns of giving energy to the Old & Told into living from what YOU’re best at (MERCURY – PLUTO – South Node) – which inevitably leads to Freedom (MERCURY – URANUS)!

Schedule of Planetary Alignments with MERCURY in CAP

JAN 8
MERCURY freshly in CAP squares MARS freshly in AR (DEC 31 – FEB 14).
Angry words and arguments can be ignited, frustration about what doesn’t work can come up.
Channeling the energy into clearly, responsibly stating what you do want and what works for you, and not making it about others is a purer and cleaner way of going effectively with that combo.

JAN 13
MERCURY in CAP conj. SATURN.
More frustration with authority? What’s your authority and responsibility? Invoke the Inner Elder / Master / Teacher to find the right words from a centred and calm place that is being respected and has beneficial effects. Also an excellent time (once a year, but these 3 years with SATURN in CAP extra boosted) to make a commitment to build / give due energy to what has priority at the end of the day – and every day.

JAN 14
MERCURY in CAP sextile NEPTUNE in PI (SATURN and NEPTUNE are in sextile in 2018).
Yes, there’s the correct and right approach a la CAP, and yet it helps to be also compassionate and sensitive – which helps smooth out what might become to rigid otherwise and with staying connected. How would the Buddha respond?
An excellent time to strengthen our commitment to spiritual practice.

JAN 18
MERCURY in CAP conj. PLUTO.
Let Mind drop to a much deeper place – call it Core or Soul or Essence or Inner Void.
See what happens to qualities of fear and control or power issues in your mental field and motivation… see what they transforms into.

JAN 22 / 23
MERCURY at the end of CAP conj. the Lunar South Node, and square URANUS in ARIES.
Old mental & communicative patterns (esp. with fear / control conditioning) have to go.
Beyond that heavy world is Freedom!

JAN 24
MERCURY enters AQ (until Feb 10)…
…where the ‘Messenger’ turns out of the box Free Thinker / Innovator / Paradigm Shifter, and will meet the SUN on JAN 29 (Superior Conjunction) – Freedom of Mind, Freedom of Consciousness.

MERCURY in CAP in Your Chart & Life…

…can ‘coach’ your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in CAP and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where CAP is in your birth (and local) chart/s to be clear and committed to what matters most, about…

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House:
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House:
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House:
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House:
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

 

 

For a good head start into the New Year, chances are it’s a good time to consciously explore the massive CAP activation via MERCURY, SATURN, New MOON, South Node, and PLUTO in your own chart and life. To stay on track with what matters, and un-prioritize / drop the rest.

Come over for a private session!
I still have the Treat Time Offer on – extended to Epiphany (JAN 6) – see below.

 

All the Best for a crystal clear Start into / as the NEW!

MARS into ARIES (Dec 31 – Feb 14) Kicks off the New Year: Let Your Inner Super Hero/ine and Activist Emerge!

30 Dec

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friends,

after a hopefully chill, relaxed, surrendered, surfing of the waves, adapting, and letting go phase with MARS in PISCES since NOV 15 (see, in retrospect if you will, the blog post for that phase)….
Are you ready to come out of your wintry groove, get into gears and into action?

MARS (Hubble Telescope picture)

 

Well, MARS going into ARIES on New Year’s Eve (in the Americas, exact 6:20 pm PST) / New Year’s Day (Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia) is, kicking us in the butt to emerge and initiate the NEW too!

MARS will be in ARIES from DEC 31 / JAN 1 until FEB 14!

 

 

What does that mean?

  • New vitality and Spring-like energy is emerging and arising – it all starts HERE!
    If you’ve been sick and weakened, you get a boost of energy, esp. if you have SUN, MOON, Nodes, AC or Planets in ARIES. MARS is natural in its ARIES domain, as a survivor, an ‘energizer bunny’, and ‘he’ comes to life when battling the elements.
  • People can get quite angry and upset (esp. with MERCURY squaring MARS on JAN 8) – no more PISCEAN tolerating – time for action – find healthy outlets. Can be a fired-up and confrontational period, with MARS in ARIES.
  • Our inner Super Hero/ine wants to be launched.
  • Our inner Super Hero/ine wants to be launched.
    Do something productive with that energy! What matters is to pro-actively get going – better than resisting and fighting.
    And yes, do something that overcomes your fear (also a la MERCURY in CAP squared by Just-do-it MARS in ARIES)!

    If it ‘doesn’t work out, not to worry. ARIES gets up and starts again, in a new way. Like a toddler learning to walk, with natural instinct and trust.

As MARS goes into ARIES on DEC 31 / JAN 1 the SUN in CAP will pass SATURN, on JAN 1 / 2 – it’ll be easier to move with a clear and conscious Spirit past what appeared as obstacles, fears, judgments, and old blockages, and to stand in our authority and have agency (ha, no more excuses…).


This is OUR Time & Life. Let’s not postpone or give up but do something with the Time and Energy we have here!

 

MARS gets the ball rolling, into 2019, bringing fresh energy for getting going, and taking action…

…esp. after the NEW MOON / Partial Solar Release Eclipse in CAP with SATURN and PLUTO, on JAN 5 / 6 which calls us to be done and give a good farewell to heavy, depressing, burdening, judgmental, repressive energy of the ‘old operating system’ that’s ‘security’ / fear & control based to make room for showing up, and doing what really matters.

 

The first 2 weeks of 2019 will be quite fired-up and energized….
with MARS freshly in ARIES, and  URANUS, presently in the last degrees of ARIES changing direction, from retro (since AUG 7) to direct / forward again, on JAN 6.
Which can show up as an explosive, erratic, unpredictable energy, affecting our nervous system and technology. We better channel it well into dynamic outlets, to actively engage FOR something NEW! And tune into awake and fresh, liberated and free energy.
It all starts – and only happens! – here. Experimentation, no expectation!


URANUS going direct on JAN 6 initiates a retro free zone until MARCH 5 when MERCURY goes retro.
YES – no Planet retro for 2 months!
A huge contrast to the 6 – 7 Planets retro, in the Retro Record Summer of 2018!
I.o.w., things are moving quite fast and in forward gear if we put drive, will power and our YES behind them. An excellent time to initiate the New.

MARS will be in ARIES until FEB 14!
Get going, Amigos & Amigas!

 

Which Planetary Combos are up, with MARS in ARIES?

JAN 8
MERCURY freshly in CAP (JAN 4 – 23) squares MARS in AR.
Angry words and arguments can be ignited, frustration with authority / what doesn’t work?
Channeling the energy into clearly, responsibly stating what you do want and who you are, and not making it about others is a purer and cleaner way of going effectively with that combo.

JAN 18
VENUS in SAG (JAN 7 – FEB 3) in Fire Trine with MARS in AR.
Woohoo! Sparks are flying between the ‘two lovers’ Archetypes. Get ignited and excited!
Channel the energy into creativity and (esp.) adventures which both ARIES & SAG love.

JAN 21 (right after the Total Lunar Eclipse on JAN 20 / 21)
MARS in AR square SATURN in CAP.
Frustration and coming up against blockages, resistance, fear, authority can be quite ‘on the agenda’. Not the best energy to start / move things forward.

Remember, this is temporary, and don’t bang your head against the wall. Respect ‘them’ in their ways / world, and do your thing in the meantime. A good time for disciplined work with lots of energy.

JAN 25
MARS in AR trine JUPITER in SAG.
There you / we go. Much much better energy to move forward with a better understanding and bigger ‘why’. If one avenue didn’t open up and doors were closed, things were too much of an ordeal we can see now what is the Heart Path and have abundant energy to move on it.

FEB 1
MARS in AR square PLUTO in CAP.
Uhhh, a ‘confrontation’ on a deep level, a la personal will (MARS) vs. Higher Power / Evolution. I.o.w., even if your desires and wants are strong it doesn’t mean this is meant to be – at this time.

FEB 7
MERCURY in AQ sextile MARS in AR.
Both planetary Archetypes strong in these Zodiac energies (exalted, ruling).
Thinking systemically helps with the right action.

FEB 12
Grand Finale for MARS in AR:
MARS in AR conj. URANUS (every 2 years only).
Liberation and breakthroughs across the board. Revolutionary energy. 
Can easily turn into societal / political protests and riots. Hopefully after the dynamics with SATURN and PLUTO, instead of a re-active a pro-active and innovative direction is being taken.
Birth the New Self!

FEB 14 
MARS leaves ARIES, and settles in TAU (until MARCH 30).

 

MARS in ARIES in Your Chart & Life…

… will activate and energize your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in ARIES, and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where ARIES is in your birth (and local) chart/s:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House:
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House:
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House:
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House:
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

 

 

Do You want to explore the MARS-in-ARIES activation in YOUR chart & life?
Let’s do it. C
ome over for a private session! Can be a short focused one (ARIES likes that).
I still have the Treat Time Offer on – extended to Epiphany (JAN 6) – see below.

All the Best for a dynamic Start into / as the NEW!

12 Days of Christmas & The Zodiac?!

23 Dec

Everyone knows the epic carol 12 Days of Christmas – and you might have wondered about the hidden, encoded meaning of the ‘gifts’?!
Check out the Wiki article, and maybe you’re inclined to do more research?

The 12 Days go from DEC 25 / 26 Christmas Day / St. Stephen until JAN 6 / Epiphany.
Some say they start from Christmas night DEC 25 / 26, and each ‘Day’ starts with the eve / night leading into it.

Guess why I’m writing about them?
Because there’s a ZODIAC Connection with the 12 Days!

Two directions can be taken, forward or backward in the Zodiac, both complementary.
The first Day of Christmas, DEC 25 / 26 is the Day of ARIES, and / or the Day of PISCES.

Would you like to tune in, follow the 12 Zodiac Days, and receive ‘customized gifts’ from those energies?

Lots of astrological symbolism in Christianity and its architecture, often in plain sight – they knew what they were doing and using!

 

Here’s the line-up of dates and corresponding 12-Day ZODIAC themes  (forward and backward):

DEC 25 / 26:
ARIES / PISCES

DEC 26 / 27:
TAURUS / AQUARIUS

DEC 27 / 28:
GEMINI / CAPRICORN

DEC 28 / 29:
CANCER / SAGITTARIUS

DEC 29 / 30:
LEO / SCORPIO

DEC 30 / 31:
VIRGO / LIBRA

– and then it ‘flips’ on New Year’s, as we’re dancing on the VIR-LI-VIR cusp – Perfect Alignment!

Dec 31 / JAN 1:
LIBRA / VIRGO

JAN 1 / 2:
SCORPIO / LEO

JAN 2 / 3:
SAGITTARIUS / CANCER

JAN 3 / 4:
CAPRICORN / GEMINI

JAN 4 / 5:
AQUARIUS / TAURUS

JAN 5 / 6:
PISCES / ARIES.

 

Let’s invite synchronistic messages, and see how the ZODIAC themes show up for us,

Much Love to you, at Christmas & ‘between the Years’, in Timeliness & Timelessness!

Winter SoUlstice Full Moon (Dec 22, 2018) in CANCER – CAP: Home is where the Heart of Hearts is…

21 Dec

Happy Winter SoUlstice Full Moon,

dear Reader in the Astro~News Tribe!

What a rare occurrence this year, as only 17 hrs after Winter Solstice, LUNA shows her fullness just after entering her Cancerian home abode. 
The Winter Solstice SUN is met by the Summer Solstice MOON!

 

At this WINTER SOLSTICE Day, the waxing MOON is still in GEM, and the Solstice Night will be an almost-Full MOON night (when the lunar energy is even stronger than the day after the Full Moon).
A polarity between the need to belong to a tribe or family, be with children / with the Inner Child (CANCER), and focusing on priorities and purpose / being the Elder (CAP).


Which may be but doesn’t have to be a dilemma, ‘bridged’ by MARS / CHIRON between them (a square): SoUlutions come from surrendering to the healing quality of unity and connection. When we connect from the Heart it all comes and flows together, time flies or stands still – either way, it’s magical.

 

Tall Tree Time – Nourished by the Waters of Life…. Photo by Melanie, Winter SoUlstice 2018

 

What nurtures us? asks the CANCER Full Moon…
How do we nurture Ourselves, our Children, our Inner Child, our Family / Tribe?
How do we feel and give a sense of Belonging?
Where’s HOME?

Nurturing young and old through the COLD, finding emotional and physical comfort and resources is a big deal in Northern lands – even though we’re just coming through the shortest days of the year, Winter  & CAPRICORN has only just begun, today Dec 21.

How do the contrasting themes of the warm, cuddly, and caring CANCER and rock-solid CAPRICORN energies (which you can see in the chart below) balance and complement?

 

The Winter Solstice Sun initiates CAPRICORN where SATURN, PLUTO, and the Lunar South Node sit these days / years:

 

  • SATURN, the Ruler of CAP – for a year now in CAP (since Dec 20, 2017 and dwelling in the mountainous region of CAP until Dec 17, 2020)!
    Here’s the blog article for this momentous move a year ago – maybe time for a review of the first year?
    SATURN in CAP brings rewarding incentives for us to ‘step up’ and be / do what we’re best at.
    No need to waste our time and energy on what’s futile and not ‘the real thing’. It’s Your Time and Your Life.
    No need to feel guilty, nor to judge what we don’t want to see, rather to move on / up, and model the Best and the Change (PLUTO).

 

  • PLUTO is in CAP for the long haul, until 2023.
    To make sure CAP goes through its deep foundational change and Evolution. I.o.w., for humanity to be done with wasteful, abusive, irresponsible, immature behaviour.
    So much time and energy is invested in sustaining a dinosaur system. We need to step up to the plate, live more simply (doesn’t mean deprivation) and sustainably, with quality focus instead of quantity (yet never-enough).
    What helps is clear noticing what / which (perhaps conditioned) patterns drain our energy, where energy comes from in contrast, and following that trail.

 

Here’s the full ‘Birth Chart’ of the Winter Solstice Full Moon!

Yes, a Full Moon is like a birthing or harvest of what comes to fruition – whether it’s been planted / sown under the previous New Moon, or many Moons ago.

The Full Moon in CANCER – CAP will be exact at 9:49 am PST tomorrow Dec 22.

 

 

Here ‘she’ is! The MOON will enter her CANCER abode at 8:28 am PST, just 80 min before the Full Moon at 9:49 am PST on the first degrees (0°49′) of CAN – CAP.

The MOON and the Lunar North Node surround and embrace CANCER – a well-needed and supported Zodiac energy nowadays.
The Lunar Nodes shifted into CAP – CAN on Nov 16 where they’ll be until June 5, 2020 (here’s the blog post for this Nodal energy phase).


Inviting us to lead from Cancerian warmth, care, nurturance, playfulness, creativity, drop heavy Capricornian burdens, ‘shoulds’, conditioning, fears, restrictions, depression, judgment, and not feed the CAP shadow of unqualified leadership and tyrannical structures that eat up our time and energy.
Rather to go where joy and playful timelessness are, and to create and raise vibrations from there. More energy freed up to create the change we do want to see and that sustains us.

 

For the CANCER – CAPRICORN Solstice / Christmas Full Moon in the signs of the Lunar Nodes that means (and is also a prelude to the upcoming Solar and Lunar Eclipses in CAP – CAN in 2019):

  • It’s not about ‘production’ and status for the Holidays (yep, pretty clear how that can drain our time, energy, and money…), rather about Heart connections, home, and belonging.
  • HOME is where the Heart of Hearts is…. a place we just love and where we feel welcomed, and a spiritual place that invites us unconditionally to come home to, at Christmas and any timeless time.
  • CANCER & CAP bring Elders and Children and anybody in-between together (rather than a separation and segregation that’s so common – and also costly – in modern society). 
  • How do traditions (CAP) feed our needs, and make us feel we belong (CANCER)?
  • The Summer Solstice GEM – CAN cusp of the FULL MOON is the ‘Nesting Point’ as I call it. Having a nurturing nest to come back to (CAN MOON) helps us with having energy to do important work in the world (CAP SUN).

 

 

Let’s take a look at the SABIAN SYMBOLS

…for the MOON and SUN at the Summer and Winter Solstice Points!

 

The Full MOON will be at 0°49′ CANCER.

1° CANCER:

 

Mexican Moon Boat(s) – Photo by Melanie, Dec 2018

 

“ON A SHIP THE SAILORS LOWER AN OLD FLAG AND RAISE A NEW ONE.

KEYNOTE: A radical change of allegiance exteriorized in a symbolical act: A point of no return.

We have now reached a square (go-degree angle) to the beginning of the cyclic process. This is a moment of crisis, a sharp turning point. In the zodiacal cycle, at the Summer Solstice the northward motion of the Sun (in “decimation”) stops; the Sun rises and sets as far north of exact east and west as it can during the year-cycle. Its motion is now reversed. Slowly the sunset points move southward on the western horizon, and the length of the day decreases. In the Lunation cycle (from New Moon to New Moon) this is the First Quarter phase.
On the “ship” which symbolizes the ego-consciousness floating, as it were, on the sea of the vast Unconscious, the individualized will makes a basic decision. The dominant Yang force allows the Yin force to begin its six-month long rise to power. The “collective” will gradually overcomes the “individual,” and at the end the state will overpower the person. Now, however, the individual person enjoys his most glorious hour; he exults in his ability to make a “free decision”- i.e. to act as an individual who selects his life goal and his allegiance.

This is the first stage in the nineteenth five-fold series of degree symbols. In a decisive act heavy with consequences, the symbolic college youth might realize that he should bring to an end his quest for the ideal companion and enter into matrimony. He assents to the possibility of progeny, of home responsibility. His consciousness accepts a process of fundamental REORIENTATION, implying the stabilization of his energies.”


Sooo, where’s your Moon Boat taking you?
Which relation-ships, home, and other harbours for your soul….?
Dare to re-orient yourself.

 

The SUN will be at 0°49′ CAP.

1° CAPRICORN:

 

Chief Seattle

 

“AN INDIAN CHIEF CLAIMS POWER FROM THE ASSEMBLED TRIBE.

KEYNOTE: The power and responsibility implied in any claim for leadership.

The religious ideal implied in the preceding symbol has now materialized or crystallized into sheer power — the power to lead the community and to ensure its welfare or even its physical survival. The energies released through group cooperation (Libra), deepened and emotionally experienced as forces of great potency (Scorpio), and given meaning and conscious purpose (Sagittarius) are now stabilized and hierarchized. The power of the group is turned into a measurable and carefully managed “capital.” The words “chief” and “capital” come from the same Latin word, caput, meaning “head.” 
A time comes in many lives when the individual finds themselves placed in a situation that allows them to assume power over their comrades, however limited this power may be. Is he / she ready to do this effectively and responsibly? This is the supreme test of a human being in society. 
It complements its polar opposite (Summer Solstice degree), which refers to the acceptance by the individual of a new kind of allegiance as a foundation for the integration of a mature personality. Such a foundation may, but need not, refer to establishing a home.

This represents the first stage in a five-fold process — the fifty-fifth sequence of five symbols. It refers to the capacity latent in every individual to claim and assume AUTHORITY in a vital group-situation.”

 

SATURN now in CAP is clearly about this kind of mature Authority – a notion to claim it where appropriate, and the repercussions of its use (or abuse).
Quite clearly, we’re seeing plenty of evidence of the necessity for responsible leadership and authority, and for the misuse of it. The theme becomes more prominent in the SATURN in CAP years that can also have a heightened karmic effect (SATURN being the ‘Lord of Karma’, in its own domain CAP), across the board.

What / who’s evidently not fit for authority must adjust, or go.
Actually quite simple.

May better leadership and authority establish itself in these years.

What in us doesn’t step UP to the occasion, and assume leader-ship (because you can, you have the cap-acities)?
What’s in the way of truly leading your life?
And how can you claim Authority again?

 

Especially if your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets are in early CANCER, CAP but also ARIES and LIBRA…
…You’d notice the tension and perhaps notion for re-orientation to be in natural Leadership of your Life (again).
As the year 2019 unfolds, with its Eclipses in CAP – CAN, clear orientation reveals itself more and more. But hey, maybe this FULL MOON already made things crystal clear to you, in your Heart of Hearts?

What are other Planetary Energies in the Full Moon Field, and what’s their Medicine for us?

 

  • The SUN and MOON in early CAP / CAN come out of a T-square with MARS / CHIRON (aligned on Dec 28) in late PISCES where also NEPTUNE ‘sails’ (and was met by MARS on Dec 7).
    The ‘outlet’ and Piscean solution for the SUN – MOON tension leads us to the Medicine of Unity and Connection. Heart Connection transcends either-or, this or that, and a happy, healing Heart can be ‘at home’ anywhere, esp. in the Heart of Hearts….

 

  • MERCURY and JUPITER in SAG aligned this morning, just before the Winter SoUlstice.
    Joy to the World! Speak your Truth, and Raise Vibrations!
    Important to be truthful, and come from a pure Heart that’s not about better-than.

 

  • VENUS has come to the Heart of the Scorpion – as she ‘sits’ in mid SCO -, comes out of a mystical, magical Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI (exact today Dec 21) and will square LILITH in central AQ on Dec 23.
    Intimacy, Magic, and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and Freedom and Independence.
    Allow both to co-exist rather than be in conflict – NEPTUNE is the big unifyer anyway…

 

  • URANUS retro (the only retro Planet at this point!) in late AR / on the ‘Settling Point’ to TAU will turn around to go direct on Jan 6 – the day after the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse. This month (end of Dec to mid-Jan) are quite URANIAN with this focal point.
    Meaning, paradigm shifts and liberation yet also disruption of old patterns and structures.
    Allow freedom to prevail, not just freedom from or freedom for, but (one of my favourite provocative quotes by J. Krishnamurti) freedom that has no opposite….

 

 

More about URANUS’s turnaround on Jan 6, and MARS going from PISCES into ARIES on Dec 31 (a big energy boost into the New Year) in upcoming blog posts. Stay tuned!
Of course, you can also expect a New Year’s Overview post!

 

Wishing you a blessed Winter SoUlstice, Christmas, and Holiday Time of your Tradition!
May the Returning Light shine brightly into all areas of your life, and guide your Way HOME! ❤

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers in December, to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!

From the Galactic Centre to the WINTER SOLSTICE 2018: Light Returning…

16 Dec

Solsticey Greetings, Cosmic Friend!

 

 

These days, Dec 17 – 19, is the yearly time when (in the Northern Hemisphere) the SUN in late SAG points to the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy – the Galactic Centre, a dark rift, ‘black hole’, AND a birthing place out of stillness, honoured by indigenous cultures as the Womb of Creation.

All of us with birthdays these days, or AC, MOON, or Planets in our birth chart at 26 – 28° SAG, are strongly called to align from our loving Heart, with the Heart of Hearts, to follow ultimate Truth, inner Guidance, and trust the inner Soul Light on our Path.

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, at the end of SAG where from Earth perspective the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point!

On the Winter Solstice intersection of SAG / CAP, we’re also at the Space-Time cross(roads):
SAG rules Space, and CAP rules Time.

What does it take, to show up simply and ‘magically’ at the right Time at the right Place? To ‘attract synchronicities’?

We increase the odds when we’re in resonance with the Universe, i.o.w., when we follow inner Heart Guidance, the inner teacher who is connected to the bigger sphere, or even ‘simpler’: When we’re in egoless alignment with Integrity as-Nature, and move with LOVE.


The
 Winter SoUlstice Point is the Space-Time Point, Integrity Point, or Inner Guru Point – here we can find the Teacher and Guiding Light within. 

SATURN, the ‘obstacle bringer’ who teaches us via ‘what’s in the way’ (hint: old patterns and conditioning, fears and limitations, ego contraction, sense of separateness, and need for control) and where we need to drop the excess ‘baggage’ of these heavy duty engagements, was 2015 – 2017 in SAG, and crossed just before last Winter Solstice 2017 over the Space-Time Point into CAP (which SATURN rules), and where it reminds us of what’s real and has priority, and shows us through clear feedback what works and what doesn’t (esp. long term).

Reflections for SATURN now on the CAP side of the Winter Solstice Point:

  • Where / how can you find the Sage / Elder in you? 
  • What’s your experience of the Ground of Being?
  • When all is still and dark, what is undying?
  • How does the Inner Light return for you?
  • Living by ancient, timeless teachings can be very beneficial – always, esp. in times like these.

 

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light. 

 

This year, JUPITER is in SAG. It will come close to the Galactic Ctre when it stations at 24°21′ SAG on Apr 10 to go retro from there, and will cross the GC in Nov 2019 before entering CAP on Dec 2, 2019.
A whole different energy with JUPITER round the GC than with SATURN in the last years:
Rather than dealing with / buying into and needing to unburden ourselves from old beliefs and stories that are obstacles and cause separation, with JUPITER in SAG, Deep Understanding, Trust, Heart Truth guiding our Path, the Freedom to live by it, and OpportUnities arise.

 

Blessings for the Galactic RE-Birthday to all of us NOW!

The energy to align with essential deep Truth (the ultimate Gift that comes ‘down the chimney’) so that we can actually WALK the Vision, and BE the Truth, the Light, the Love!

 

The SUN will reach the sacred SAG-to-CAP transition, at WINTER SOLSTICE 2017 – this year on Dec 21 at 2:25 pm PST.

Here is the Winter Solstice ‘Birth Chart’:

 

What’s so special about the WINTER SOLSTICE 2018:
It leads up to a FULL MOON  at the very first degree of CANCER (CAP for the SUN), just 19 hrs later, on Dec 22!

At WINTER SOLSTICE, the waxing MOON will be still in GEM, and the Solstice night will be an almost-Full MOON night (when the lunar energy is even stronger than the day after).
A polarity between the need to belong to a tribe or family, be with children / with the Inner Child, and to focus on priorities and purpose, which may be but doesn’t have to be a dilemma, ‘bridged’ by MARS / CHIRON between them (a square):
SoUlutions come from doing actively something about unity and connection, and surrendering to the healing quality of it. When we connect from the Heart it all comes and flows together, time flies or stands still – either way, it’s magical.

 

Also on the day of the WINTER SOLSTICE:
MERCURY in SAG (coming out of post-retro ‘shadow’) unites with JUPITER, and gears up to a square with NEPTUNE in PI on Christmas Eve, Dec 24.
This alignment is also quite relevant for the U.S., with MERCURY / JUPITER just 3° away from the country’s AC at 12°12′ SAG. 

More opportunity to find and speak our Heart Truth, be authentic, have fun, celebrate, see the bigger picture and the gifts of Life, and share generously.
With the NEPTUNE square, a romantic, dreamy, mystical and musical vibe at Christmas. It can be also prone to fantasies, illusions, and disappointments when expectations (SAG) aren’t met.
So take it easy, tune into wonder, and sound and song that unites.

 

Lastly, on the WINTER SOLSTICE day and the day after:
On Dec 21, VENUS in SCO goes into Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI – Surfing the Waves of Love…
Then on Dec 22, VENUS in mid-SCO (doubly-SCO energy there) will square LILITH in mid-AQ (doubly-AQ there).
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

 


Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, incl. YULE – Winter Solstice

Let’s link up with the deep cosmic energy at this time of year!

And honour ancient traditions – in our Time and Place.

 

Speaking of Space-Time:

Space as we knew it has changed massively and irreversibly (Internet, globalization, worldwide travel boom etc.), during the period when PLUTO was in SAG (1995 – 2008). 

Time as we know it is changing now, with PLUTO in CAP (2008 – 2023).
Time is VERY relative, in fact it’s just a dimension that can be also molded, and transcended:
We energetically ‘run out of it’ when we race around in scarcity mode, and, with consumer mentality (ha, esp. before Christmas…), want more of what we don’t seem to ‘have’. Like a ‘hungry ghost’. The shadow of CAP (never satisfied materialist). 

In contrast, we ‘have all the time in the world’ when we slow down, and tune into ‘Kairos’ (time-as-quality) rather than ‘Chronos’ (time-as-quantity).

When we tap into ‘Deep Time’, and tune into Heart Time…
One of the best gifts we can give others, to ourselves, and to the World.
A theme that’s up now big time 🙂 and to REflect upon, with MERCURY& JUPITER in SAG, and SATURN in CAP!

How Deep is your Love? The ‘RE-newed VENUS’ moves through SCO (now for real – Dec 2 – Jan 7)

2 Dec

Picture: Birth of Venus (detail). Painting by S. Botticelli

It’s also all about VENUS!
She’s naturally at home in fair LIBRA – where she’s been again recently.
With and after her retro journey back from SCO to LI (Oct 5 – Nov 16), she’s come a long way…

A transformation and re-emergence of the Inner Feminine and Goddess energy has occurred.
With VENUS in SCO and the retro phase we’ve faced old painful / uncomfortable / repressed / in-the-closet / shamed / sexually related themes around the Feminine resulting in imbalanced and abusive relationship patterns that need to be processed, so that we come as women and men to a new place of empowerment from within – from which we naturally engage in and cultivate right relationship.

The ‘New VENUS’ re-entered her LIBRAn domain on Oct 31 – supporting new conscious choices that are a ‘better match’, more balanced, fair, and harmonious.
And hey, with the recent VENUS retro in LIBRA, it’s been important to ‘marry ourselves’ first!

Now with the New VENUS we’re tapping more easily (you too?) into the ‘Morning Star’ quality, meaning: We’re coming from our own solid Self Love and Self Value first, before choosing to engage with others.

 

Just before VENUS entered SCO, today Dec 2, she opposed on Nov 30 from end of LIBRA once more URANUS which is now retro at the end of ARIES. For the 3rd time, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) on Oct 31, in retro. 
Wow, this triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) has stirred up a lot between the Love Goddess and the notion for Autonomy / la Libertee.

When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (New VENUS post retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others to be free.
Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.
‘Tipping’ into freedom (URANUS) AND, intimacy and depth (SCO).

 

What’s with

VENUS’s dates with other Planetary Archetypes while she’s in SCO (Dec 2 – Jan 7)?

Early this week is quite scorpionic, since the Dark MOON in SCO (before the SAG NEW MOON on DEC 6 / 7) unites with VENUS in early SCO tomorrow Mon Dec 3, and with MERCURY in late SCO on Wed Dec 5:

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy, it’s time to lovingly dive into the change that this choice brings (SCO).

When we do it with the depth of our Heart we’re in a place where intimacy and magic can unfold, and we may feel carried by something bigger and powerful.

 

After the early Dec ALCHEMY with MOON – VENUS – MERCURY in SCO, there will be just 5 VENUS connections with slower moving Planets – calm and powerful ones, except for some thrill between VENUS and LILITH on the day of the Full Moon:

Dec 16
VENUS in SCO sextile SATURN in CAP.
Love can be so simple.

Dec 21
VENUS in SCO trine NEPTUNE in PI.
Surfing the Waves of Love.

Dec 22 – Day of the CAN – CAP Full Moon
VENUS in SCO square LILITH in AQ.
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

Dec 28
VENUS in SCO sextile PLUTO in SCO.
The Depth and Power of Love.

Jan 5
VENUS in SCO trine CHIRON in PI.
Love Heals.

 

Sending You Loving Blessings for the VENUSian Infusion in SCORPIO!
