SUN, MOON, Eclipses and PLANETS in 2020 – Astro Highlights of the Year, esp.: the Big JUPITER / SATURN / PLUTO Union

31 Dec

Dear Astro~News Reader,

 

Roman two-faced God Janus the Doorkeeper of the Year, looking into the Past and into the Future (well – I guess the old one would be the past and the young one / year the future).

SATURN, Ruler of CAP, the Zodiac energy of the time of year when the old calendar year ends and a new one begins, and for one more year (end of 2017 – end of 2020) in CAP likes clarity and outlook into what’s ahead.


So I’m offering you here-now the Highlights of Planetary Movements, New Moons, Full Moons, and (SIX) Eclipses for the already epic year 2020.
With a big emphasis on the top Players JUPITER / SATURN / PLUTO, all in CAP, uniting this year.

If you’re an Astro buff you probably ‘connect the dots’ with ease. But hey, we all have blind spots.
In any case, if you feel intrigued to tune into the whole ‘orchestra’ of planetary influences, customized to your personal birth chart, I invite you to come to a private session.

And if you’re specifically interested in getting a sense of a certain planetary Transit come join our upcoming Astro workshops and Parlours in 2020!
In person in Victoria or online, via zoom, from your home / holiday around the globe.
Just register by 24 hrs prior, with your birth info (so that I can set up and integrate YOUR chart into the discussion), and show up at the PST / PDT time).
Details via Astro~News, and on my FB Astro Page!

 

 

Let’s get right to it:

The big News Makers in 2020 are JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO, all 3 in CAPRICORN!

In combination they indicate:
2020 will be a historic year.

All three now in CAP (JUPITER since Dec 2, 2019) are travelling close together all year, and also go into several rare exact duo conjunctions – which all mark the end and beginning of 3 long term cycles. With all of these concentrated in one year the combination has compounding effects:

 

  • The SATURN / PLUTO conjunction end of CAP exactly on Jan 12, 2020, yet already building up over the last 2 years, and almost exact in Spring / Summer 2019.
    It’s ending a 38-year SATURN / PLUTO cycle since 1982, re: societal structures disintegrating, making room for a new era.
    In the early 80’s the alignment was end of LIBRA, and the shift affected the breakdown of old paradigms in relationships – esp. the default model of marriage / life-long commitment which ain’t no more the norm (SATURN).

    Now we’re facing the disintegration / collapse of an old outer (yet also internalized) world. The Empire expires, with its established structures, systems and hierarchical societal paradigms (SATURN in CAP), its fear & control, shame & guilt based conditioning, its shadows of systemic domination and oppression of Nature and ‘Inferiors’.
    All kind of real deal shadow (SATURN / PLUTO) is coming out now for transformation.
    The low vibrations of fear & manipulation (with the personal ego in charge) can be upgraded into respect, groundedness, and intrinsic power, in alignment with Higher Self and the Power of the Cosmos.
    We’re on the threshold of a New Era.

    CAP rules time and history.
    That’s why THIS SATURN / PLUTO alignment is so significant.
    The SATURN / PLUTO alignment in the sign of CAP hasn’t happened in half a millennium!
    The last time exactly in 1517 / 18  – the start of the Protestant Reformation, initiated by Martin Luther which led to a historic break with the established Church. Luther had become convinced that the institutional Church was corrupt in its ways and had lost sight of what he saw as several of the central truths of Christianity.
    Unsurprisingly, Luther was born with multiple SCO placements (MARS, SATURN, VENUS, SUN), prone to uncover what was going on behind the scenes and incongruent with the essence of the teachings the Church was built on. His bold ARIES MOON opposed PLUTO in LIBRA. He had to initiate a break from what wasn’t in right relationship with essence / God, as both were T-squared by the 1516 – 17 SATURN / PLUTO conj. in CAP.
    Late CAP where the Jan 12 alignment happens (and JUPITER / SATURN / PLUTO will be aligned throughout 2020, plus PLUTO will still be until 2023) has a VIRGO undertone.
    The primarily patriarchal ‘leadership’ model that has over centuries disrespected Natural Laws and the Sacred Feminine, and shown ample evidence (SATURN) for its destructive effects (example: more and more production incl. for wars and for waste) is SO overdue to expire.

    Less is more, and being more humble, aware, and caring in our global ‘household’ (literally the root of terms economy & ecology) is mandatory (SATURN) for an effective transformation (SATURN-PLUTO). We all need to show up & contribute with our Best (CAP) and collaborate (end of CAP leading over to AQ) rather than bailing out or blaming ‘those in charge’. High time to learn from mistakes, correct them and abide by Natural Law, and in respect for all Life on Earth.

    Old heavy / karmic / limiting timelines (SATURN in CAP) come up to be transformed and cleared now (PLUTO).
    A cosmic-collective RE-birthing process is on:
    SATURN represents archetypally also the matrix, and labour / contraction initiating the process of separation at birth, and PLUTO represents the birth canal – forces of nature take over. Resistance to change is futile. A death leading to rebirth.

    Speaking of birthing:
    The Lunar North Node now in CANCER – opposite the CAP cluster, and activated with the CAN – CAP Full Moon / PLE on Jan 10, 2020, calls upon the Great Mother Goddess in / with us to nurture ourselves and other Beings with love, compassion, and gentleness through these hard times (CAP), and to treat everything and everyone with love and reverence.
    On deep levels, the limited physical reality of our experience (SATURN) seems so solid (CAP) yet is an illusion / a ‘matrix’ if you will.
    Consistently living (SATURN) from Soul Self / Essence (PLUTO) can take care of old burdens and limitations and show: All Life is Sacred.
    The Spiritual and the Material are ONE.
    Which is so much better for sustainable Living and Building – the purified and elevated CAP.
    More about SATURN – PLUTO, its cycle, and what’s striking about several Planets passing PLUTO in separate post.
    Stay tuned.

 

  • The JUPITER / PLUTO triple conjunction on Apr 4, June 28, and Nov 12, ending a 13-year cycle since 2007 (their alignment was then end of SAG) and beginning a new one.

    At the beginning of and well into that cycle was the U.S. & eventually global (SAG) financial crisis which started with excessive risk taking & massive bail-outs. Big time (JUPITER) SAG shadow (PLUTO) of overspending and excessive ‘trust’.
    In the meantime, PLUTO entered CAP (2008 / 2009) and recently (on Dec 2, 2019) also JUPITER, showing this unlimited growth bubble is unsustainable – and destructive. Even though, thus far, the capitalist built-in growth mandate has still persisted. Looks like not for much longer though, as the new cycle based on wise restraint and sustainability (CAP) is kicking in. Big time change through understanding & outgrowing the old system. The Power of resourcefulness, voluntary simplicity, and quality over quantity. Time to bring out our Best – from our Soul Essence.

 

  • The JUPITER / SATURN conjunction on Dec 21 / Winter Solstice 2020 – just days after both Planets will be OUT of CAP, and coming together at 1° AQ – starting a new 20-year cycle.

    The now ending socio-economic-political JUPITER / SATURN cycle began on May 28, 2000, with both Planets in TAURUS – emphasizing mostly conservative political leadership, territorialism, consumerism, and thankfully at least also a growing concern for Nature.
    Their new alignment on the cusp of AQ
    brings for the next two decades an emphasis on  collaboration and social responsibility of all humanity – beyond CAP hierarchies.
    PLUTO will follow into AQ in 2023 – the bigger and deeper irreversible evolution goes in that direction.
    One could say, the AQ Age is in the making.

 

Here is the ‘Birth Chart’ of 2020 –

…showing these alignments already building up, and the other planetary activations at this threshold into the new decade – which you’ll find described below.

 

 


SUN / MOON – 

12 New Moons, 13 Full Moons, and 6(!) Eclipses

Nothing eclipsed here, but beautiful polar New Moon ‘boat’ (photographer unknown)

As always, NEW MOONs and the days to follow are good times to ‘plant a new seed’.

My understanding is different from ‘old school’ Astrology, suggesting it’s a good time ‘to set an intention’ – since that’s a limiting masculine biased view.
Intention is just one (the yang) side of the NEW MOON which has a yin-yang Conception quality. The yin feminine side suggests to also be open to receive and conceive, round the NEW MOON.

FULL MOONs bring cycles to fruition (as the famous ‘Harvest Moon’ model).

ECLIPSES (this year 6 of them, starting with the one on JAN 10) are exact NEW MOONs and FULL MOONs, aligned with the Lunar Nodes – call it ‘Resets’ or ‘Karmic Pathways’.
Or (in Chinese symbolism) ‘Dragon’s Mouth’ = North Node where fresh energy is provided, and ‘Dragon’s Tail’ = South Node, where old energy is released.

ECLIPSES extend their effects beyond the Lunar Phase, over several months.

 

The CANCER (North Node) – CAPRICORN (South Node) theme since Nov 16, 2018 is still big this year: Because we Care! CANCERian Caring and Compassion are a super important balance / starting point, facing the massive CAP concentration & grand finale this year.

On June 5, 2020, the Nodes go into GEMINI (North Node) – SAG (South Node), inviting us, rather than buying into old stories, beliefs, agenda, false promises, and making assumptions (SN in SAG) to be curious, question, engage in dialogue, and be a learner rather than a ‘know it all / already’.
Interesting cosmic backdrop (in combo with others) for the U.S. presidential elections on Nov 3 (which happens to be also the day when MERCURY, ruler of GEM goes from retro to direct iow will be in ‘wild storm’!).

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 yourself in 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey? Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!

MARS Crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ and Rises in SAG (Jan 3 – Feb 16): Upward-Onward we GO!

30 Dec

Hi Cosmic & Magical Beings!

  phoenixrising  

MARS, presently at the ‘tail end’ of SCO, will cross over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG on Jan 3 – Yayyyy! Another amazing 2020 New Year’s effect!

We’re coming out of an intense Martian immersion in SCO since Nov 18 (with both the SUN & MERCURY also in SCO then) which indeed stirred a lot up – only to help us process & expel what’s been hiding in the shadow.

Have over the last while sticky, repressed ‘stuff’ incl core fears gotten provoked in you? Transformation starts often fiercely…

Im referring here to the SATURN / PLUTO effect that’s the bigger backdrop. Both planets come together in CAP (with a whole big CAP cluster attached) on Jan 12 (only every 38 years, and in CAP only every hundreds of years). PLUTO rules SCO and SATURN CAP. Together, they evoke & purge old conditioning (often with fear & control being major ‘ingredients’), based on the old top-down system – which is now crumbling (while still hanging on in the old modus operandi). 

Lots of ‘digestion’, burning, and purging has been happening, on deep inner psycho-spiritual levels for us personally, and big time on collective levels too, this Fall & early Winter.

Basically since early Oct, when MERCURY entered SCO for a loong time on the very day (Oct 3) when PLUTO (ruler of SCO) went from retro to direct.

The purge was super boosted round the time when MARS joined forces in SCO, on Nov 18.

MARS in SCO also catalyzed big structural PLUTO-in-CAP purges (as in: ‘Old Empire’ / inner Matrix) which lead to living from Power Within.

If you feel you already had your share hopefully you could also work wisely-consciously with the intensity.

Maybe it takes some time to process and integrate what’s been going on. But hey, early next year no Planets will be retro for a while which supports forward momentum.  

Have you noticed recently more energetic support in flushing out what came up, and needs to be eliminated and transformed?

MARS is now at the last part of SCO (since Solstice)! What’s been ‘poking and provoking’ us, even though it could have created conflict, and might feel fierce, is actually also good Medicine for transformation and empowerment.

MARS (Hubble Space Telescope). Loving the Phoenix type pattern ON Mars’s surface!

MARS is this transition week from old-to-new year & decade at the ‘tail end’ of SCORPIO.

Perfect cosmic support for deep release. 

Connect with what has provoked you – and shown your shadow – esp. recently. You might literally feel a kind of heat rising up when just tuning into those feelings (e.g.: sense of betrayal, resentment, mistrust, disgust, shame, failure…).

What has come to the surface, and what has it transformed into? In this transition phase, how about honouring MARS in SCO for being that catalyst / detox energy?  

What’s been / still needs to be purged in your life, esp. in the area related to the house where SCO / SAG is in your chart?

Maybe you have Planets, Sun, Moon, or AC there?

Feel welcome to get in touch, if you could use supportive pointers, or an Astro Boost!

Still got the Astro Treat Time offer with substantial discounts for sessions on until tomorrow Dec 31.  

 

Blessings for the Inner Magical Alchemy & Rebirth – into the New Now!  

 

What’s next?

As MARS crosses over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCORPIO to SAG, on Jan 3, let its fiery energy burn off what you’re not, and give you a boost into Rebirth! 

Once MARS will be in SAG, a fiery energy comes into the system – and into the fresh New Year & Decade that’s excellent for motivation, enthusiasm, literally travelling, shooting from the Heart, acting based on our Truth & Inspiration, aiming high, and going upward-onward.

Since the MARS boost in SAG also corresponds with a retro-free phase (Jan 10 – Feb 16 NO Planet will be retro) a lot can be set into motion and freely move forward now.

What’s your intention?

Aaand: We might still want to watch for the Martian shadow expressions of turning our passion for a cause and movement into an argumentative fight and righteous endeavor / mission.

 
 

MARS will be in SAG until Feb 16 – and energize several quite significant cosmic alignments during that time:

Markers in the Martian Journey in SAG

Where is MARS’s Inspiration / Aspiration Boost in SAG happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in SAG? Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in SAG, since ‘he’ also activates your Sagittarian Archetypes. They get a boost of energy – to show up in heart-full inspiration, with a big Why and YES.   

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius, Painting by Johfra Bosschart

And for all of us, whichever House/s SAG inhabits in our birth chart is the inspiration realm – the corresponding area of Life is about Trust and Heart Fire – fuel to move forward, with the Inner Light.

 

Your SAG Houses – we all have one (or two) – and the MARS Effect / Medicine:  

 

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self
Magnanimous and fun to be around.
Go for it – trust yourself and trust Life!
 

 

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, incl. your Business
A great boost to inspire the world with your values and uplifting vibes.
 

 

3rd House
Your Environment & Relatives
Wide open spaces to roam around? A multi-cultural world?
Or sooo much space between you & them?
A good time to be pro-active and meet (or travel to) people from afar yet near & dear to your Heart.
 

 

4th House
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry
Overseas? Around the World?
Give yourself Space @ Home, hike & roam around and let yourself be inspired by what’s around you. Explore truths about your Family & Ancestry (but take it easy on domestic arguments).
 

 

5th House
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover
Show your Heart, do fun things, and take initiative.
 

 

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle
Sporty? Travelling? Marketing? Writing?
A wonderful phase to act on opportunities for engaging in your service-with-fun.  

 

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others
They’re sooo much fun to be with, mutually inspiring, great travel mates?
Or a know-it-all / better who try to convince / convert you?
Meet them from the Heart, do things together (Nature walks & hikes and travel are ideal), yet allow for lots of space between you.
 

 

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others. Your Transformations
Lots going on there for you, and when you share the gift is in the giving. Share generously & trustingly. True gifting w/o agenda makes you feel wealthy & happy.

Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self
Maybe a teacher, modelling with inspiration, fun, and generosity.
Be out there on your Heart Mission. And yes, you have attitude towards society. Debates are likely. Know the bigger Why and when your motif to inspire turns aggressive. 
 

 

11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends From all walks of life, and corners of the Planet.
Party time…?! Be out there, in a multitude of fun, dynamic & inspiring people around you. You uplift each other.

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 yourself in 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey? Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!

12 Days of Christmas & the Zodiac?!

26 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 hidden in plain sight!

 

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

DEC 25 / 26:
ARIES / PISCES
Well – and we had the New Moon (which has natural ARIES energy) / Ring of Fire Solar Release (PISCES energy) Eclipse

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!

 

Melanie

MERCURY into CAP (Dec 28 – Jan 16) – Walking the Talk. Keeping it real.

24 Dec

Dear Cosmic Friend & Astro News Reader,

Really?
More CAPPY energy yet?!
 
Yep – MERCURY is going to join the club.
What a CAPPY concentrated kick-off of 2020!  
 
 

Caduceus Staff of Hermes / Mercury (photographer and location unknown) – also very apropos MERCURY in CAP – classic / neo classic architecture…  in structural integrity.

 
 
On Dec 28, it’s MERCURY’s turn to cross over the Integrity Point (as I like to call it) from SAG to CAP!

To help with thinking realistically, talking straight and to the point, grounded and matter-of-factly, with in-built authority, not wasting thoughts or words on what doesn’t matter, sticking to priorities, and keeping our word.
Doing as we say. Simple & rock-solid. Being in planning mode (without letting the planning mind take over).
 
Let’s not get TOO serious though – promise?!
 
An excellent energy for taking stock & doing inventory of the old, and checking where’s room for improvement. 

Don’t be too judgmental and hard on yourself or others.
A great time to take interest in / reading about anything classic / historic.

And to think
Quality over Quantity
Simplicity beyond Complexity
 
ZEN NoMind
 
MERCURY in CAP will be active until Jan 16.
 
 
 

MERCURY in CAP will witness and report from these epic key dates / alignments:

 

DEC 31
New Year’s Eve & last day of the decade

 

JAN 1, 2020
Day One of the new decade

 

JAN 2
MERCURY in CAP meets JUPITER – the 1st CAP connection (more to come).

 

JAN 3 
MARS goes over the Phoenix Point into SAG.

 

JAN 6
Epiphany – Magi Day / Astrologer’s Day

 

JAN 10
Full Moon in CAN – CAP / Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
MERCURY lines up with the CAP SUN – Superior Conjunction
URANUS, the ‘higher octave’ of / transpersonal version of MERCURY turns from retro (since Aug 11) direct again (until Aug 15).
From that day on, NO Planet will be retro until Feb 16.

 

JAN 12
The long anticipated alignment of SATURN & PLUTO occurs.
And MERCURY meets both on that day too.

 

JAN 13
The CAP SUN meets PLUTO & SATURN
VENUS enters PISCES (where ‘she’s exalted – most favourably placed)

How MERCURY in CAP (Dec 28 – Jan 16) will get real with the other Planetary Archetypes it comes in contact with.

 

DEC 28
MERCURY enters CAP.

Walking the Talk. Keeping it real.  

 

DEC 29
MERCURY in early CAP squares CHIRON stat. in early ARIES.
What does the mature & grounded voice say to starting fresh and taking initiative?
Being authentic is being in integrity and keeping things simple.
 

 

DEC 30
MERCURY in CAP in Earth Trine with URANUS retro / stationary in TAU.
Try out / on something classic, and emBody freedom – you’re old enough. Get out of old patterned habits & judgments. Who says it’s gotta be SO?!  

 

JAN 2
MERCURY in CAP meets JUPITER.
Perfect time to become clear what matters most and what it takes to keep it a priority. The cosmic coach wants to bring out your best so that the world can benefit.  

 

JAN 8
MERCURY in CAP in sextile with NEPTUNE in PISCES.
Being realistic and grounded can go well together with transcending time & space. The Force?! Think ZEN, or other meditation in action. Great time (always is) to start or come back to a simple and timeless practice.  

 

JAN 10 – Day of the CAN – CAP Full Moon / PLE
MERCURY in CAP meets & passes the SUN – Superior Conjunction.
Excellent time to make a conscious commitment to something that’s been a long time coming. How do you show up as the ‘grown-up’ that you are? What does your Higher Self expect from you? You deserve to step into it. How does it feel?  

 

JAN 12 – Day of the SATURN – PLUTO Conjunction
MERCURY in CAP meets SATURN & PLUTO.
What do fear, authority, control, and power say? What’s your deepest fear? What happens when you voice it / write about it? What transforms inner / old blocks and conditioning? Dialogue with them! What’s the ‘Old Empire’ in your life? What’s going on as it expires?  

 

JAN 16
MERCURY moves over the ‘Prometheus / Community Building Point’ from CAP to AQ (where it’s exalted).
Free out of the box / Matrix thinking & co-creating.  

 

Where is MERCURY’s grounding CAP wisdom reaching your chart & You in Life?

Yoda Sage got timeless basic wisdom a la Mercury in CAP

The House in your chart that contains CAP has top priority for you these days. (Always, but esp. nowadays) a good time to be clear and calm, show up timely / timelessly, and walk / work in integrity.
 
As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP? Then there’s even more to the activation between MERCURY – AND JUPITER, SATURN and PLUTO and these Inner Archetypes of yours…
 
Would be definitely a good time (well, understated) to check in astrologically – get in touch if you feel it feels right.
Got the Treat Time offer on now (Dec 1 – 31).
What an opportunity to make a zero footprint gift of cosmic inspiration to others and yourself and save big compared to my reg. fees. Pragmatic CAP likes all that, you bet.
 
 
Back to the CAP Houses – we all have one (or two) – and MERCURY’s 19-day visit (short but covering all the bases) will help connect the dots and walk the talk there.

…after a perhaps frustrating yet effective ‘clearing’ and phase of closures with SATURN in CAP over the last 2 years, and deeper evolution over the last decade since PLUTO’s been in CAP.
We really have changed & matured so much in our CAP Houses!
And are stepping out of Old Paradigms, and into new ways of Being.
 
 
 
 
1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

Mature, calm, reliable, resourceful & resilient. No energy waste.
Time to have your voice heard. Speak, write, let the world know (no unsolicited advice though) what matters most – to you.  
 
 
2nd House
Your Values. What you own, literally & metaphorically, incl. your Business 

Building on solid ground is your thing.
A good time to acquire something of lasting / increasing value. What gives you true rock-solid security? Time to appreciate and use what you (already) have, and to build your business in simplicity & consistency. The time is ripe.
 
 
 
3rd House
Your Environment & Relatives

SO conservative and judgmental… or: traditional and always there for one another, old fashioned / timeless reliability.
Notice your thinking about them. Drop your own judgment, while staying in integrity. Don’t take on what’s not yours to carry. Be a calm rock in the world around you.
 
 
 
4th House
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry
 
A rock-solid ancient world, affected by & writing history. Or just sooo old world / old empire,and you’ve become SO done with it?
When coming home practice calm discernment about the gifts of a solid foundation and teachings (even via ‘negative examples’) and how you’ve outgrown the Old. Take the best and leave the rest (with love).
 
 
 
5th House
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover
 
Play may indeed have priority (a matter of permission?).
Create something important – one step / day at a time. Instead of being held back by judgment, turn to the wisdom of experience, and infuse your creativity with mature ‘grandma love’. Talk to your inner child / grandchild.Cherish the time with your children as they mature and appreciate every ‘season’ with them.
 
 
6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle


Taking on something serious & responsible?
Here’s your top season to serve significantly. Your word matters. Affirm others and yourself in bringing out their / your best – for the Highest Good. The time is NOW. 
 
 
 
7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

Mature and reliable ones may apply.
Enough frustrations, hardship, rejections, NO’s on their or your side. Done with old patterns. How has SATURN in CAP been your (at times perhaps tough) relationship coach? How would the Best and maturest side in you communicate with them? Keep it simple and real. Respect them as yourself.
 
 
8th House 
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others. Your Transformations
 
Serious processes you’ve been through – in Life and esp. in the last years.
Yes, you need to talk about the hardship. Don’t get stuck in repeating patterns though. Don’t take too much on for others (anymore) – you know that  guilty feeling… But hey, let them know you’re there for them with your time, resources, and love as it’s in integrity for you.
 
 
 
9th House
What gives you Meaning. Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels
 
You don’t take those lightly.
It doesn’t have to be SO. Have serious lessons-into-wisdom shown up on your Path in the last 2 years? Which people,  places, and purpose are you communicating with now, with all your experience under your belt? What have you learnt? A good time also to learn a new foreign language or polish up an old one – ideally by being IN the country.
 
 
 
10th House
Your Purpose incl Career. Your Public Self
 
You challenge yourself, don’t you?!
Hope you haven’t been held back by fear and performance anxiety in the last years, or judged (yourself) unfairly. The public wants to meet you, esp. these weeks. Yes, because you lead by example and have accomplished something admirable. But also just because. Be out there at important / quality public events. An upgrade is due.  
 
 
 
11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends
 
Top notch. Established. Or simply solid.
And / or people who’ve been there, done that, don’t buy into consensus reality anymore, and co-invest their time and energy into what matters most, at the end of the day. Cherish precious time together, and how you’ve seen each other mature over time. Talk to your long time friends.
 
 
 
12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.
 
Form & Formlessness. Ever interchanging and simultaneously present for you.
Time is a mystery / illusion. How have you experienced the evidence of it over ‘the last years’? The Universe has your back, and you can rely on it – as you tie up your Camel. Receive cosmic messages and share the word out – easy! 
  

 

Wishing you a real cool time with MERCURY in CAP!

Ring of Fire Super CAP Annular Solar Eclipse (Dec 25 / 26) – Out of the Old Paradigm. Into New Ways of Being.

23 Dec

Solstice Blessings, dear Cosmic Friends on this Sacred Earth!

The Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere has brought back the – ever so slowly but surely – returning Light, as the daylight is getting longer, second by second, and minute by minute.

Hope you and yours have been also celebrating in Joy of the Light Returning!

 

And now – right on Christmas Day / Boxing Day:

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse is coming!

On Dec 25 / 26 –  and the path of the ‘Ring of Fire’ will go over the Arabian Peninsula, Indian Ocean, Southern and South-East Asia.

 

 

It sets the tone for a Super CAP season, culminating on Jan 12, 2020, with the epic and much anticipated (yet already gradually building up) SATURN – PLUTO conjunction which comes only every 38 years, and occurred in CAP the last time several hundreds of years ago.
It is also amplified by JUPITER, freshly in CAP, and right ‘next to’ the Eclipse New Moon. See chart below.

Obviously a Big and important one.

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices: Ostara, LITHA (Summer Solstice), Mabon, YULE (Winter Solstice)

And it will be one of the TWO major ecliptic Solstice New Moons of the Year:
The Dec 25 / 26, 2019 Annular Solar Eclipse in CAP (with SO much CAP) just after the Winter Solstice.
The June 20 / 21, 2020 Annular Solar Eclipse at 0º21 CAN just 9 hrs after the Summer Solstice.

Both are catalyzing karmic pathways, collectively and for us personally, esp. if we have CAPRICORN and CANCER energies in our charts.

They are super significant Eclipses, as they happen on the cardinal Solstice Points of the year, where energy takes a turn and a new lead.

 

In 2019 / 2020, seven Eclipses in CAP / CAN are on!

 

Four CAP / CAN Eclipses in 2019:

 

Three CAP – CAN Eclipses in 2020 (the new year will see six Eclipses altogether!):

  • Jan 10 Full Moon / PLE in CAN / CAP, with Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto in CAP.
  • June 21 / 22 New Moon Annular SE (Seed Eclipse) in CAN.
  • July 4 / 5 Full Moon PLE in CAP / CAN, with Jupiter / Pluto in CAP.

 

Have you been feeling the Eclipse effects (usually building up the month before)?

The Christmas ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE in early CAP helps us with releasing and ‘recycling’ the old ‘business as usual’. The Old Empire is expiring, as it’s unsustainable (a critical CAP question) and has shown ample evidence (Saturn) for its (self)destructive (Pluto) potential.

As an Annular Solar Eclipse, the MOON almost completely covers the SUN disk, reduced to a fiery ring ‘behind’ the MOON.
Symbolically, the Yin / Female / Lunar quality steps in front of the Yang / Masculine / Solar to create a temporary darkening effect.
A light switch in consciousness. 

 

Lunar South Node Glyph

Every New Moon closes a lunar month cycle and initiates a new one.
A Solar Eclipse is an exact New Moon – a clear threshold and ‘re-set’ of Solar Consciousness, aligned with the ‘karmic pathways’ of the Lunar Nodes:
Lights off / on!

Lunar North Node Glyph

The South Node of the Moon has been since Nov 2018 in CAPRICORN and the North Node in CANCER.
More about this phase (until June 2020) in this blog post

The ‘cosmic outbreath’ / switch-off button is on the CAP side these days / months / years, and the cosmic ‘inbreath’ / incentive / switch on button comes from the CANCER side:

We’re called to breathe out / be done with cruel, oppressive, abusive, exploiting, wasteful top-down linear structures.
And take in fresh energy of caring and belonging in the Human Family. We are in the Circle of Life.

The Lunar Nodes are about Balance (rather than old-school dualistic: do this, avoid the opposite) – after all, breathing is cyclical too:
How about:
Remembering the Ancient EarthMother (CAP-CAN), and the ways of our Ancestors – translated into this time… What would help us move forward in a Life sustaining and nurturing ways?

If we ‘jump’ through the Ring of Fire of the old CAP modus operandi we find ourselves in a different way of Being.
Maybe the old Ring has simply become to small and tight, and it’s time to take it off. Expansive JUPITER in CAP now – showing up right by the Eclipse – magnifies the Old, and says: “There’s more than that.”
I bet you sense what that means in your life (and pointers would show up in the area of life relating to early CAP in your chart).
Below I expand on outgrowing (or jumping out of) the Old.

 

Two CAP New Moon Eclipses frame 2019 (Jan 5 / 6 and Jan 25 / 26)!


Such a year to take stock / inventory.
Which is revealing & naturally empowering.

  • Remember the early Jan Partial Solar Eclipse (with Saturn) in CAP?
  • What has been your inner and societal ‘Old Empire’ that had its expiry year in 2019?

  • And – since energy doesn’t just disappear unless we’re talking Black Hole – what have the endings of an era turned into?

  • Do you see evidence of regeneration from ‘compost’ into new growth already?

 

Maybe you’ve been super frustrated with generic, conditioned, ingrained ‘operating systems’ and structures esp. in socio-economic realms, with lacking leadership & poor modelling of integrity (SATURN in CAP).
Ok – we know now what doesn’t work in the status quo.
Common sense / Natural Law would do things differently.
Question is, do we still engage with the old, in the hope to help change the system from within?

Or is this futile for various reasons, and time & energy are better invested in creatively (hey, CANCER represents  creative Mother Goddess energy) building (CAP) the New – in organic co-creative ways, modeled by Nature – as eco systems & biospheres do?!

 

 

 

Yet – helpful to call it out – so that we catch ourselves when being tempted to buy into it / feeling trapped,  and to disengage.
Acknowledgment helps with closure.

 

The old linear & hierarchical paradigm is based on misconceptions / limiting lies of scarcity, separation, and superiority.

 

Limiting Lie 1:
Scarcity of resources.

False. Resources are not limited. They need to be allocated in a different way.
Gandhi’s words sum it up: “The world has enough for the human need, but not enough for the human greed.”
Well, and competition fits well with scarcity.
Innovation / creativity / cooperation as an unlimited resource is not (yet) enough supported (since some if not most innovations would make established profit producing activities redundant).
The Bigger Truth (JUPITER) is: Nature is abundant.

 

Limiting Lie 2:
Separation.

When people buy into it they can be easily divided and ruled.
Applies also to apparent self sufficiency via ‘convenient’ (for whom really?) tech gadgets that seem to connect yet also de facto separate us. And they need our attention and create psychological checking-checking dependency / addiction (hey, also because it’s never the ‘real thing, always a simulation) as well as economic dependency (upgrades, newest models, compatibility).
Separation is an artificial / untrue concept.
The Bigger Truth is interrelatedness & oneness. Spiritually & scientifically obvious by now.
The era with NEPTUNE in PISCES (2012 – 2026) has shown it to us, on all levels…

 

Limiting Lie 3:
Superiority.
Based on Separation – some are on top aka bosses, elite; others ‘beneath’.
Applies to structured relationships between humans, and came with patriarchal hierarchies.
And applies to relationships between humans and other sentient beings. A disastrous mistranslation / interpretation of the Bible in Genesis 1:28, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over / reign / govern over… every living thing”?!
Well, the Bible itself is quite a patriarchal document, and in that sense it’s sadly consistent.
Sad (convenient) justification for abuse / slavery / colonization. The shadow of CAP.
The Bigger Truth is: Interdependence of Life. Nobody’s entitled to put themselves on top of other Beings. And hey, we’re all in a process of decolonization.
A new foundation for co-creation, community building, and collaboration in equality is on the horizon, as SATURN & JUPITER enter AQ in 2020, and align at 0º28’AQ at Winter Solstice 2020.

 

The economic ‘business as usual’ paradigm whose operating system is based on the 3 Lies and striving to maximize production & profit – often at the expense of ‘externalities’ = impacts on ‘third parties’ (another Orwellian newspeak way of masking / hiding the simple truth of damage been done) –has failed.
B.t.w., paradigm in its original sense means: A model, pattern, precedent, even: exhibit.
Hence, not a given, and up for change if it doesn’t work.
Yet, sadly, so many parties are invested in the destructive & dysfunctional old.
Mostly to maintain status and privileges. Or out of fear / feeling trapped & unimagination stick with the ‘old devil’.

 

What helps – what doesn’t?

‘Just’ reacting to, resisting, blaming, and fighting external authority and power structures (SATURN / PLUTO) is not the way forward. It still feeds their energy field by giving them attention, acknowledging them energetically, in an adolescent & victim manner.

Time to take self-responsibility, claim self-authority (SATURN in CAP), and to ‘outgrow’ (JUPITER  in CAP, next to the Eclipse) the Old. By co-building new and better, more compassionate and humane structures that take care of needs more directly and on an equal level, rather than the  fossilized top-down institutionalized world?!

 

Snowy Stone Circles on Beacon Hill – timeless / ‘retro’ photo from 5 years ago, Dec 2014 (before they were fenced in!)

 

The natural ways flow with and the Natural Law respects the Web of Life:
All is Connected. All is ONE.
Abundance is an expression of continuous creation & creativity.
Our Ancestors (CAP) knew it and the Elders (CAP) teach it. 

So simple.

How can we consistently, step by step like the Solstice light / early CAP SUN, implement the new and growing energy of integrity, resourcefulness, less-is-more contentment, and calm simplicity?
JUPITER now in CAP since Dec 2 and for almost all of 2020 helps us with outgrowing the Old and expired, bringing our Best to the World, and working with Time & Resources for the highest Good.



This is the last Solar Eclipse in CAP for a while.

In about 19 years will be the next ones.
Big time endings of old unsustainable and / or outlived / expired structures.

Eclipses come back to the same point in the Zodiac every 19 years.
There was a CAP New Moon / PSE Solar Eclipse over North & Central America on Dec 25, 2000!
An invitation to reflect upon that cycle:

  • What did you build (CAP) since then, and what’s now coming to an assessment / inventory?

  • CAP refers to success / failure as an important criterion. Yet it’s not so ‘obvious’, since even ‘defeat’ on an outer / ego level can lead to spiritual advancement.

  • Where do you stand in relation to society and its structures (CAP)?

  • What have you contributed, and what are your best qualities (CAP) that are being called for now?

  • What are / have become (CAP) priorities (from an empowered and evolutionary place)?

  • What’s super timely (CAP) now for you?

  • How can you be in deep time / Soul time?

 

The 19-year early CAP Solar Eclipse cycle (2000 – 2019) is almost congruent with the 20-year JUPITER – SATURN cycle (2000 – 2020)!

Wall St. Bronze Bull

Uhhh – another confirmation of what the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse announces:
A socio-political-economic JUPITER-SATURN cycle is ending, and a new one is beginning, in 2020.
Well, 2020 will be such a historic year.

The now ending 20-year cycle we’re in started on May 28, 2000, as JUPITER & SATURN aligned in TAURUS, initiating two decades of Taurean consumerism, conservatism, and territorialism.
Of course, money – a prime Taurean factor – has played a big role, if not: Ruled the game.

On an evolutionary level, the value of Nature and of protecting Mother Earth (TAU) became more prominent too.

End of 2020, JUPITER & SATURN will align on the AQ side of the CAP-AQ ‘Community Building / Humanity Collaboration’ cusp – after a year of big CAP transformations.
We’re stepping into a new Era.

 

Well, and what’s with the Christmas Spirit?

Not an ‘accident’ (what is?) that the Eclipse falls on Christmas Day / Boxing Day.
Simple message right there:
With all the CAP shadow of busy production mode, FOMO (so much to do, so little time to take it all in), being ueber scheduled, buying into externalized conditioning of expectations, showing up where you don’t feel authentically called to, getting ‘obli-gifts’, pretending, compensating via materialism, crazy consumerism (incl. Boxing Day rush), the true Christmas Spirit is vastly ‘lost in translation’.

SO – Time to jump through all the falsity and into what’s true and essential about Christmas and all the celebrations of Light & Love at this Sacred Time. 

 

A Release Ceremony

…on the day before the Eclipse New Moon (= tomorrow Dec 24 / Dec 25 daytime) would be in perfect alignment with the energies, and supported by the Universe.
Maybe you’d love to bring a gift to Mother Earth to a place by the water for a release-with-love, while asking for transformation?

I like the model of the Despacho which I was honoured to be part of at Winter Solstice 2012.
Creating a beautiful gift (also for release, like in a letter) with decoration according to your intuitive guidance, on an Earth friendly biodegradable cloth, wrapping it up like a parcel, and offering it to Mother Earth as a gift and for transformation. Maybe bringing it to a flowing Water body.

 

And, as always with the Eclipses (twice a year, a pair of Lunar and Solar Eclipse occur), the Annular Solar Eclipse catalyzes what’s going on in the Astro sphere otherwise.

SO – let’s take a good look at the

Birth Chart of the Ring of Fire Annular Solar Eclipse

The CAP New Moon will occur at 9:13 pm PST on Dec 25 / 12:13 am EST on Dec 26.
The maximum Eclipse will be at 9:17 pm PST.
So it really is energetically a Total Solar Eclipse.

 

 

And SO much CAP indeed!

Right next to the Eclipse New Moon is JUPITER (met by the MOON just 2 hrs after the NM / Eclipse, and by the SUN on Dec 27). Also super close-by: the South Node Release Point, and SATURN approaching PLUTO (their exact union will be on Jan 12).
What a strong gravitational cluster!

An Old World / Old Empire comes to an end. 
Traditionally / symbolically, an Eclipse has been considered ‘the Death of a Ruler / King’ as the SUN is overshadowed by the MOON. Lights off.
The death of the shadow of what rules and governs us, in the hierarchical CAP world – see above…
How do you relate to that?
And what can the old shadow world / empire transform into?

With SATURN – PLUTO (they were already close to each other and to the South Node in CAP for an extended time this Spring and early Summer) it’s helpful to tap into our deepest / core fears.
MARS now in SCO (until Jan 3) helps with diving into what’s usually hidden and covered.
Accessing and acknowledging deep fears and perhaps THE core fear can be SO key for moving to empowering change.
It’s the first step for letting transformation, healing
(CHIRON in ARIES in square with the Eclipse), and liberation from the inside-out (URANUS retro in TAU in trine with the Eclipse) happen, which can turn into truly-naturally emBodying Freedom.

SATURN – PLUTO will help us with transforming externalized authority & power / control into letting Soul / Higher Power take the lead, and doing the Soul work. 

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, in the direction to end of SAG where the SUN travels just before the Winter Solstice

MERCURY is now end of SAG – pointing to the direction of the Galactic Centre – the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy, where ultimate Raison d’Etre, Why and Truth are always unfathomable (definitely for the mind) and a Matter of Heart. The Galactic Centre at the end of SAG – close to the ‘Integrity Point’ to CAP is about the ultimate Unknown that points us to the Wisdom and Knowing of the Spiritual Heart, and to ultimate Trust in the Journey. Let the Heart Speak, and follow the Heart Light!
On Dec 28, MERCURY will enter CAP
– reminding us / them to walk the talk.

 

VENUS is now in AQ (Dec 19 – Jan 13)- the one Planet offering a breath of fresh AIR into the otherwise super earthy cosmic Alchemy.
VENUS heralds the shift of SATURN & JUPITER into AQ in 2020, and evokes our Love for Humanity and its Future.
‘She’ likes to
bring people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps Utopian, and innovative.

 

Lastly, let’s see what the 

Sabian Symbol of the Eclipse New Moon

…wants to show us.
The New Moon will be at 4º06′ CAP.

 

Songhees Nation Christmas / Solstice / Eagle Tree – Canoe Paddles included – as seen last week

 

4º CAP:

“A GROUP OF PEOPLE OUTFITTING A LARGE CANOE AT THE START OF A JOURNEY BY WATER.

KEYNOTE: The ability to use natural resources and basic skills in order to achieve a group-purpose.

As this scene was recorded in the original version only in imprecise terms, it seems merely to indicate the start of a journey undertaken by a cohesive group of people, who perhaps together have built this large canoe. Thus we see here a common enterprise which may be an answer to the need for a change of locality. A social group more strongly than ever reveals its homogeneity and common will when it decides to move away from its familiar habitat. The zodiacal sign Capricorn brings this common will to a focus in concrete actions. It does so in terms of socio-political expediency and under a definite type of executive direction, even though the decisions are arrived at by common consent.

As this is the fourth symbol in the fifty-fifth five-fold sequence, we find in it a hint of how to do something concrete. The “canoe” may also have a special technical meaning, as it uses water in order to move. A common feeling-response to a specific situation may be implied. The main emphasis is nevertheless on GROUP-ACTIVITY in circumstances implying a need for change.”

 

Perfect!
The Symbol brings the solution to moving out of the (recent) Old World paradigm, and points to where it’s going next year and in the years to come.
The canoe / boat and journey by water are CANCER symbols (as is the tribe and the human family) – where the North Node is now.
Big Gratitude for the confirmation!

 

Blessings for the Ring of Fire SoUlar Eclipse!
Let’s jump through / outgrow the old Ring with Heart Power.
And start building vehicles of Change together!

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 yourself in 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!  

 

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!
December is TREAT TIME Month:

From the Galactic Centre to the WINTER SOLSTICE 2019: Light Returning…

16 Dec

Solsticey Greetings, Cosmic Friend!

Galactic Cente – The Heart of the Milky Way Galaxy, via NASA infrared Space Telescope

 

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 you 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.

 

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

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – at the end of SAG where the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point

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. 

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.

SATURN, the ‘obstacle bringer’ 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.
SATURN crossed just before last Winter Solstice 2017 over the Space-Time Point into CAP
(which it also 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).


And ‘Guru’ JUPITER has just on Dec 2, 2019 crossed the Space-Time Point into CAP.

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

  • What have been the Gifts you received in the last year (and beyond)? Including those in disguise (usually the most spiritually important ones…).
  • Which of your inner Gifts have you been shown / reminded of?
  • What would be the best way of doing something with them?
  • How can this implementation bring out your Best?
    Not to say it’s easy but can be very rewarding – a theme JUPITER in CAP just loves.
  • How can your Best serve the Greater Good?
  • How does the Inner Light return for you?
  • Living by ancient, timeless teachings can be very beneficial – always, esp. in times like these.

 

 

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 conditioning and limitations (SATURN) it’s now a time to find opportunities to bring out our best qualities – and having said NO to the old paradigm sure helps.

 

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 Talk, Implement the Vision, and BE the Truth, the Light, the Love!

 

The SUN will reach the sacred SAG-to-CAP transition, at WINTER SOLSTICE 2019 – this year on Dec 21 at 8:23 pm PST.

Here is the Winter Solstice ‘Birth Chart’:

 

What’s so special about the WINTER SOLSTICE 2019:

 

SO much in CAP!

It leads up to the yearly SUN – JUPITER union – this year on Christmas Day – when we’ll also see a ‘Ring of Fire’ annular Solar Eclipse in early CAP.
Plus, the much anticipated union of SATURN & PLUTO in CAP on Jan 12 is coming.
All 3 cosmic activations point to the End of an Era where the CAP shadow (top-down authority, abuse of power, exploitation, waste….) have been rampant and overall destructive, and the Return & Regeneration of Living in Integrity.

 

Also on the day of the WINTER SOLSTICE:
Spirit of Fire

LEO Rising (on the West Coast), MERCURY in SAG, and CHIRON stationary in early ARIES  – having just turned direct on 12-12.
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 MERCURY – NEPTUNE square, a romantic, dreamy, mystical and musical vibe is on from the Full Moon to Solstice – perfect. 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.

 


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 (esp. before Christmas…), want more of what we don’t seem to ‘have’. Like a ‘hungry ghost’. One of the shadows of CAP (the 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 in SAG, and JUPITER / SATURN in CAP!

Love is Liberating! VENUS in AQ (Dec 19, 2019 – Jan 13, 2020) – while URANUS is in TAURUS

10 Dec

HI there, dear Astro Friends out there, known and unknown!

Everybody’s looking with anticipation at the ‘due date’ of the SATURN – PLUTO conjunction in CAP on Jan 12. But hey – VENUS plays a big role in the energy field as well!


For one, in her CAP ‘crone’ guise ‘she’ unites them and with them this week round the Full Moon in GEM – SAG (on Dec 11 / 12):
With SATURN on Dec 11 – their dance is visible in the evening sky all week -, and with invisible-to-the-eye but potently present PLUTO on Fri Dec 13 (a VENUS – MOON Day of the Goddess).

VENUS is setting the stage for the end of the old – transformation – new foundation that’s to come with SATURN – PLUTO.
Do it with Love & with Goddess Power. Getting real and committing to this Love.

The old top-down CAP world has to go and is changing (while – as it goes – resisting, and being in death struggle). Living naturally, from the ground-up is returning.
Rather than subordinating the Earth and all her beings (according to the old apparently sanctioned ‘convenient’ belief) – and using / abusing them for the ‘benefit’ of humanity – or rather: for greed & profit – we come back to honour, respect the Earth and Nature and work WITH them, in the cycles of life. At the very least, as urban dwellers, we endeavour to do as little harm as possible, and are consciously in collaboration with each other and with the Earth.
Very apropos AQ – which both JUPITER & SATURN will enter in 2020 – a new societal 20-year cycle starts / and also apropos the AQ Ruler URANUS in TAURUS (the sign of VENUS) (2018 – 2026).

 

The VENUSian shift from CAP to AQ can look like this:

After CAPricornian tests, (mutual) commitments, maturity, reliability, and respect comes freedom.
If experience shows there’s a lack of integrity in whom / what you attracted, the freedom comes from moving on, and finding environments, communities, and circles where these qualities have a better chance of being present.

And after the allegiance to (societally, interpersonally, and personally) established structures – CAP – comes also a movement to ‘Freedom from the Known & Old’.
Are you being drawn now to ‘out of the box’ experiences and creations as VENUS moves from late CAP to AQ?

VENUS in AQ also brings out our Love for Humanity and its Future.
Which brings people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps Utopian, and innovative.

 

Silver Angel (Pixabay)

 

The main theme for AQ is Freedom.

URANUS, the Ruler of AQ, is these years (2018 – 2026) in TAURUS, the realm ruled by VENUS
(“Wake Up Earthlings!” And: “EmBodying Freedom”).
While VENUS will be in AQ – a mutual reception between them (‘double whammy’) reinforcing their shared themes.
Both will be in square with each other on Dec 22.

Give yourself permission for freedom  (rather than being bound by obligations) round Winter Solstice and Christmas.
Great for being with friends, and for gatherings in circles of like-spirit beyond the ‘boundaries’ of convention and predictability.


Maybe through this way of being together we’re already supporting to let go of old CAP modes of rules, expectations, obli-gifts, shoulds, martyrdom, Christmas guilt trips and the alike, and help the Old Empire to expire… while supporting the composting of it into a world of genuine Community in Freedom.

An exciting time – be open for surprises!
VENUS in AQ will not just span over Christmas & New Year’s…
But, ‘she’ will witness
  • The Christmas New Moon / CAP Partial Solar Eclipse on Dec 25
  • The Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse in CAN – CAP on Jan 10
  • The turnaround of URANUS – Ruler of AQ – also on Jan 10, and
  • The epochal SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12.

Let’s come together with your blood Family in Freedom (hey, other Humans to share this Earth Journey with!), and with our Family of Spirit, and be in Community in Freedom and Collaboration.

Planet ‘Dates’ of VENUS in AQ (Dec 19, 2019 – Jan 13, 2020)

Not so many directly – rather indirectly, via the inner connection with URANUS now in TAURUS.
They culminate round Winter Solstice.

I added the ‘sharp’ aspects TO VENUS from the MOON, to give a sense of the ‘flavour’ on those days when they engage with each other in dynamic ways:

 

DEC 21 – Winter Solstice
VENUS freshly in AQ sextiles stationary CHIRON in early AR.
The waning MOON in SCO squares VENUS in AQ.

Good to process and release deep stuff – if possible with good friends or in a trusted group.
Showing up in authentic ways sets your Love Free and is healing.

 

DEC 22
VENUS in AQ in square with URANUS in TAU.
EmBody Freedom, and EnJoy Liberating Life & Love! 

 

DEC 28
The waning MOON in AQ meets VENUS.
Where’s / who’s your Tribe? Maybe not in one group but eclectic.
All good, follow your feelings, and choose in Freedom.

 

JAN 6 – Epiphany
The waxing MOON in TAU squares VENUS in AQ.
Habits and comfort vs attraction to freedom and experimentation.
How can they be reconciled? Yet also, your ‘conservative’ feelings might come from an old and boring place.

 

JAN 13
The waning MOON in LEO opposes VENUS in AQ.
A need for being special, seen and loved as YOU, vs. being drawn to group energy?
Be creative, show what you got, and be social too.

 

JAN 13 – FEB 7
VENUS in PISCES – where ‘She’s’ exalted among all Zodiac signs
Sail in the Waters of Love – All is ONE.

 

 

VENUS in AQUARIUS in Your Chart & Life…

URANUS Rules AQUARIUS
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in AQ and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where AQ is in your birth (and local) chart/s to attract partners and choices that are a good match because / if they represent free spiritedness and friendship.

In the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game with VENUS, showing you where you’re at, with Your Self Value and Self Love.
Your attractions mirror it.

What’s with the freedom you give to yourself?
Are you a good friend to yourself?

 

VENUS in AQ transiting in your… House relates to…:

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.

 

Wishing You the Gifts of a Love that sets you Free, with VENUS in AQ!
