MERCURY enters AQUARIUS (Jan 16), and the SUN follows on Jan 20: Prometheans, Innovators & Light Leaders, Unite, in Cooperation!

17 Jan

AQUARIAN Times Ahead!

After the late CAPRICORN concentration, culminating on JAN 12 with the SATURN – PLUTO conjunction, first MERCURY (today JAN 16 at 10:31 am PST), and then the SUN (on JAN 20 at 6:55 am PST) cross over the ‘Prometheus Point’, and enter AQUARIUS!


MERCURY will be in AQ for 18 days, until FEB 3 – and come back MARCH 4 – 16.
You guessed it, MERCURY retro is in the making…
The SUN will be in AQ as ‘usual’ from JAN 20 – FEB 18.


AQ usually ‘hosts’ the Chinese New Year – on the day after the 2nd New Moon after Winter Solstice. The AQ New Moon will be on JAN 24, and the Chinese New Year of the Yang METAL RAT will start on JAN 25.

After a phase with SO much EARTH, and big stretches of NO AIR in the elemental mix (except for the MOON in her Journey through the Zodiac) AQ is a welcome and uplifting energy, as the most solid & rocky Earth of CAP turns into Aquarian AIR.
VENUS was the first to go through AQ
(Dec 19 – Jan 13), and now it’s MERCURY’s turn, followed by the SUN.

A Swiss client of mine who was born on this CAP – AQ cusp literally climbs up mountains, with his parachute / flying device, to glide around in the Air and down. He describes this as his ultimate Freedom.

On this cusp, we might have ‘done the work’ / accomplished our purpose (if that’s ever possible), and feel FREE. Or – even better, there’s no condition for living in Freedom.


AQ is ruled by URANUS which is nowa-years in TAURUS (2019 – 2026): Wake UP, Earthlings, and EmBody Freedom!

Mythological Prometheus climbed up Mount Olympus, seat of the gods / the elite, to bring the fire of illumination to humanity – a ‘rebellious’ act for which he was punished by the gods. Yet, an encounter with Wounded Healer Chiron who acknowledged for everyone to have access to ‘the Fire’ set him free.

 

Prometheus unbound & surrounded by the Ring of the Zodiac – Rockefeller Ctre, NYC

 

If you have Planets / AC / Nodes on that cusp you might identify with this story, and also be here to dedicate ‘your work’ to the liberation of humanity.
Esoterically the energy is identified with the quality of a Light (AQ) Worker (CAP).
I like Light Leader better – meaning: leading by example (CAP), rather than doing the work ‘for them’. H
ere we also realize that our own work and achievements only go so far. Cooperation in Community of Light Leaders is key.


MERCURY, and then the SUN in AQ help us connect with others who’re also doing their work, and would be good matches for us, for cooperation, community building, and convergence of communities.

Maybe some of these contacts have already been activated… happened for me lately as I was asked by 2 community leaders to engage in cooperation with them and their circles – yay!


With MERCURY now leading on, and the SUN following into AQ next week, it would be good to expose yourself to groups and networks that you’re genuinely interested in cooperating with, and increase the odds for meeting ‘them’. So much easier nowadays with the Aquarian online web world!
And of course to talk with friends and like-spirited others, and about matters of collaboration and innovation.

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card Man of Crystals – Inventor

 

The Voyager Tarot card Man of Crystals – Inventor expresses the AQ energy very well – experimentation, no expectation. It’s also the energy of the scientist & genius, as well as outsider if ‘too unique’ and not understood.

No need to be isolated / ice-olated in your lonely lab / life. That’s where community comes in. Find your circle.

 

 

By the way, I’m being asked quite often, and you might wonder too:

Is the AQUARIUS AGE already here? 

Or when does it start?

No clear-cut ‘correct’ answer for this.
Yes, according to astronomical calculations the AQ Age starts when the Spring Equinox point will move (always backwards, and very, very gradually) out of PISCES and into AQ – apparently in the year 2597 – faaaar ahead.

But for one thing, there are ‘overlaps’ in the constellations.
And there are other indications, besides the ‘mere’ calculations.

Over the last 25 years, we’ve seen a ‘preview’ of what the AQ age could be about, and 2020 – 2024 we’ll see some more indicators for Aquarian shifts:

 

  • URANUS and NEPTUNE were united in AQ in the late 1990’s – they have 84- and 165-year cycle, and a conjunction in AQ is super rare.
    What happened then?
    Personal computers became accessible for everyone; the Internet took off, and changed our social, communicative, and work world forever. In the meantime, the Internet and with it social media (an AQ-PI phenomenon, initiated round the time when URANUS moved from AQ to PI in 2003) are omnipresent, in any area of life!

 

  • SATURN will be on the CAP – AQ cusp / Promethean Point this year, 2020, and unite with JUPITER just days after both enter AQ. The JUPITER – SATURN conjunction at 0º28′ AQ at Winter Solstice 2020 will start a new 20-year socio-economic-political cycle.

 

  • PLUTO (in its 248-year cycle) will go into AQ in 2023 / 24.
    There’s a big time AQ Evolution coming up. 

    Looks like Humanity really gotta and can cooperate much more than ever. Since things get intense and extreme with PLUTO, we can also see a lot of alienation and encapsulation, social awkwardness, and other side effects of the technological self-sufficiency…
    Endeavours of replacing humans with robots will increase, and perhaps a massive ‘Space Age’ will break out, with settlements on other Planets, if Earth becomes uninhabitable – whoooaah!

 

Let’s already work well with the AQ energy, be innovative (URANUS / Prometheus, the AQ related Planetary Archetype loves that), connect with like-spirited others in high-level integrity, and cooperate in community to co-create into the future, a future ON Planet Earth, I’d propose.

 

 

Astro Data & Astro Dates for MERCURY & the SUN in AQ in the upcoming Phase

MERCURY is ‘exalted’ in AQ – the Zodiac energy it can operate best in.
Our thinking can be more systemic and out-of-the-box, crystal clear and detached, concerned with the greater good, forward-thinking, team-mind, brain storming, aiming at cooperative, innovative solutions.
Also, during MERCURY’s (initial) journey through AQ is a retro-free phase – NO Planet retro since JAN 10 until FEB 16. Things can manifest fast. 

Yet, MERCURY is ‘ahead of the game’ i.o.w., literally ahead of the SUN in the Zodiac now, from Earth perspective. The SUN enters AQ 4 days after MERCURY. An indicator that MERCURY retro will be coming up soon (FEB 16 – MARCH 9, all in PISCES, and just going back to the very end of AQ). The pre-Mercury-retro Shadow will start on the very end of AQ, on FEB 2.

So let’s not give the mind TOO much weight & authority, be mindful, rather than having our mind all too full and putting our foot in the mouth, esp. in community situations / with friends, esp. when not even present (like on social media platforms).
And: rather than over-thinking let’s come back to the Heart and speak from clear Consciousness.

 

 

MERCURY’s & the SUN’s connections with other Planets during their time in AQ

MERCURY will make few alignments with other Planets while in AQ, yet prepare for retro.
The SUN in AQ (Jan 20 – Feb 18) will only make two alignments with other celestial bodies – on one day!

 

JAN 17
MERCURY in early AQ sextile CHIRON in early AR.
Re-invent yourself and speak from an authentic place.
Witnessing yourself in your thinking and communication can help heal early wounds.

 

JAN 18
MERCURY in early AQ square URANUS (Ruler of AQ) in early TAU.
Notice what happens when you’re stuck in your position. What’s going on in your body? Experiment with new sensory experiences that get you out of your head – and help you with thinking outside of the box.

 

JAN 22
The SUN in AQ in sextile with CHIRON in AR and in square with URANUS (Ruler of AQ) in TAU
Conscious awareness of what was already came up mentally / in conversation on Jan 17 / 18 via MERCURY in AQ (see above).
Being authentically you & present with what presents itself is being Free.

 

JAN 25 – Day of the Chinese New Year of the Yang Metal Rat
MERCURY in AQ in sextile with MARS in SAG
Inspired discussions & passionate movements – where is it going / are we going together?

 

FEB 2
MERCURY at the end of AQ / cusp to PI enters the pre-retro Shadow (will go retro Feb 16 – March 9)
Easy on communication in a social energy field (esp if ‘they’ aren’t even present).

 

FEB 3
MERCURY enters PISCES (until March 4, and again March 16 – Apr 10, due to retro phase Feb 16 – March 9)
Open-Mindedness

 

MARCH 4 – 16
MERCURY retro-to-direct back at the end of AQ.
Bringing ease & flow & love into commUnity conversation.

VENUS in PISCES (Jan 13 – Feb 7) ~ Love IS ~ One Love

9 Jan

Dear Astro Friends in the Human ‘Field’, and Web of Connectedness,

 

VENUS in AQ (since Dec 19) has brought out our Love for Humanity and all sentient Beings and their Future.
The AQ energy brings people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps utopian, and innovative.

Recently beautifully demonstrated through the coming together of the World Community to support all Beings threatened or already affected by the massive Australian bush fires – not the Phoenix we wish to see! Australia is also an AQ country…

The main theme for AQ is Freedom.
And its Ruling Planet URANUS is now (2018 – 2026) in TAURUS – ruled by VENUS. Freedom from old ‘values’ / comfort traps & habits and for Embodying new Values – in Freedom.

VENUS in AQ has been setting the stage for the end of the old – transformation – new foundation that’s marked by the SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12 – on the last day of VENUS in AQ, i.o.w., on the ‘Coherence Point’ to PI where People come together AS ONE.
Let’s do & BE 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.

 

On Jan 13, the VENUSian Wave rolls over into PISCES –
Sailing in the Waters of Love ~ All is ONE ~ One Love ~

 

Ocean Bliss – Photo by Melanie

 

VENUS will cruise & connect in ‘her’ Zodiac energy of exaltation until Feb 7.

The most exquisite, undefined, ‘je ne sais quoi’ energy – call it Unconditional Love. All Is Love.
The big ‘draw’ is VENUS approaching ‘her’ higher octave NEPTUNE which represents connectedness & oneness, and has been already in PI since 2012, and will continue the immersion until 2026.
Big One Love Union.
The connection date (yet we’re talking multi-D timelessness) is Jan 27.

Little yet important caveat:
This vibration (IF being in Old Pisces Age consciousness) can lead us mere mortals also into disillusionment, confusion, disappointment, or unrequited scenarios, linked into victim consciousness / projections / putting the ‘adored one’ on a pedestal / having to take ourselves off the pedestal another puts us on.
An intertwined, entangled, enmeshed world… 

Or, through our attractions / addictions(?) – which are really likely based on a deep need to be connected – we can create self sabotaging victim scenarios.

VENUS in PI is an energy of love and attraction that’s best expressed without attachment, and instead all-encompassing unconditional Love… 

Ideally (VENUS in PI is such an idealist, I should say…) this goes for any attractions and relationships, not just ‘special sweethearts’.

 

 

Preview for VENUS’s ‘Dates’ & ‘Dances’ with other Planetary Archetypes while ‘she’s in PISCES

NO Planets are Retro while VENUS sails in PISCES!
The retro free zone extends from Jan 10 – Feb 16, and things can manifest fast and smoothly – esp in the field of attraction & connection.


JAN 15
VENUS freshly in PI in sextile with URANUS stat. in TAURUS
Openness and non-attachment – flow with what IS and be Free!

 

JAN 23
VENUS in PI sextiles JUPITER in CAP.
Go with the flow, and notice how being relaxed while also real & grateful for what IS makes everything go so much smoother. Doing a big project can roll well when you come from a loving vibration.

 

JAN 26
VENUS in PI in mutable square with MARS in SAG
Nice juicy-spicy energy for – everything.

 

JAN 27 / 28
VENUS in PI meets NEPTUNE (‘her’ higher octave), and is met by the PI MOON.
Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.
Can it be sweeter than this… (except in the 7th Heaven)?
Yet, don’t mix up the real person with a character from a / your movie.
And surf away from confusing / overwhelming / toxic ‘media showers’.

 

FEB 1
VENUS in PI in sextile with PLUTO in CAP.
Connection beyond Time and ‘Death’.

 

FEB 3
VENUS in PI in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Wow, the ‘Ringed’ One meets VENUS – a commitment through connection – not to be taken lightly, says SATURN. Could be the ‘real deal’, yet without attachment (otherwise ‘she’ swims away…).

 

FEB 7
VENUS enters ARIES.
Emergence of the Warrior Goddess

 

 

VENUS in PISCES in Your Chart & Life…

NEPTUNE Rules PISCES
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in PISCES and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where PISCES is in your birth (and local) chart/s – to be a magnet for attracting partners and choices that are a good match through easy flow, resonance, and connectedness.

In the meantime / as always, there’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game going on, with VENUS showing you where you’re at, with Your Self Value and Self Love.
As in: How loving and compassionate are you with yourself?
Your attractions tend to mirror it.
You’re a vibrational match for what / whom you attract – which can be literally a mirror, or ‘the missing piece’.

 

VENUS in PISCES (meeting NEPTUNE already residing) in your… House in the next weeks is a Love & Value Magnet for you in these areas of your Life:

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 Love that Connects, with VENUS in PISCES!

CANCER – multi-CAP FM / Lunar Eclipse (Jan 10) & Epic SATURN conj. PLUTO (Jan 12) – Birthing of a New Era, as the Old Empire Expires.

9 Jan

Dear Star Being,

Feeling HER in you?

It really feels like a massive Birthing Process.
And the cosmic energies of & around the Eclipse confirm this.

What a Lunar Infusion coming up and extending her effects for a while already!

The now building Full MOON in CANCER – exact on Jan 10, 2020 at 11:21 am PST (all 0-1-2’s) – across the multi-CAP ‘world’ of the SUN & several Planets – will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse (not visible in the Americas but almost everywhere else on Planet Earth).
Such an intense polarity of the MOON in her natural CANCER abode, with SO much CAP gravitation (see below in the Birth-ing chart) on ‘the other side’ of the equation / Eclipse axis!

AND it’ll lead over to the Epic SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12, which itself is a release of an old and initiation into an New Era.

Plus, URANUS is also in the picture, turning from retro to direct on the Lunar Eclipse DAY.  A very URANian (exciting, electric, shocking, unpredictable,  wake-up calls, liberating) phase we’re in.

Initiating a 5-week period where NO Planet will be retro, and things can move forward and manifest in the outer World much faster.

 

What does this Eclipse FULL MOON evoke?

As an Eclipse (exact alignment of Moon – Earth – Sun) she’s a super charged & super charging & super changing Full Moon:
SO much is coming to Fullness, Fruition, and Harvest that is ripe for birthing as well as release now!
SO much birthing out of the Old Matrix and into the New and Unknown World.

A ‘Seed Eclipse’ she is – aligned with the Lunar North Node – inviting to plant beneficial CANCER energy, and to receive energy from Cancerian ways of Gentleness, Care, Compassion, Belonging, Home, Family, Tribe, Mother Goddess energy.
…in the face of SO much CAP gravitation (JUPITER / South Node, SUN / MERCURY, SATURN / PLUTO – 3 aligned pairs) – releasing the old and done-with shadow of CAP:
The Old Empire Expires. Fear, control, and scare-city based top-down structures crumble and collapse, subordination and power-over operating systems are outdated as they’ve shown enough evidence of their shadow (SATURN – PLUTO).

 

Prometheus, mythological Archetype of URANUS, bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

Also coming right with the Eclipse:
URANUS the Awakener & Liberator Archetype is going from retro (since last Aug) direct again – ON Jan 10!


With that move a 5-week Retro Free Phase (until Feb 16) starts!

A LOT can shift and move quite suddenly and surprisingly. Freedom comes in so many ways. Yet also wake-up calls from Mother Earth are striking once again.
Let’s get out of our habitual comfort zone, and cut the energetic umbilical chord to an old outdated and exhausted model.

 

BALANCE is a key theme for the Eclipse, since it’s an opposition.
The Full Moon is the ‘Mother of Oppositions’, calling for Balance & Integration in Right Relationship.
See paragraph below.

And this one comes with SO many other Planetary Archetypes in CAP, so hard to balance by the CANCER Eclipse Moon as it seems.
The essence of CAP has to do with hierarchical relationships, and traditional, timeless Natural Law.

The CANCER Moon Goddess / Mother / Midwife is – amazingly! – holding space & Balance for it all to transform and come through.

 

The January Full Moon is traditionally the WOLF MOON.

Wolves – from Pixabay

 

Time & Date says:
“Regardless of where the name Wolf Moon comes from; wolves howl to communicate over long distances both in North America and in Europe. It is a way of saying “here I am” to the rest of the pack or “stay away” to intruders.”
So cool to tune into Wolf Language here.

The Wolf MOON Eclipse is actually a lot about finding your Tribe / Pack, and saying NO to / moving out of external / disrespectful / abusive domination & control structures that violate Right Relationship & Natural Law.

 

 

The height of the Eclipse (which you can watch via the Time & Date telescopes if you can’t see the Red Moon directly) will be at 11:08 am PST on Jan 10. 
The FULL MOON will be exact just 13 min later, at 11:21 am PST.

Take a look at the

Birthing chart of the Eclipse Full Moon

 


Obviously, the CANCER – CAPRICORN polarity is very powerful in the Astro ‘Field’ – and lots of heavenly bodies are all wrapping around the Lunar South Node in CAP – while the Eclipse Full MOON comes with the Lunar North Node in CANCER.

As Eclipses always do, this Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Moon accentuates the Karmic Nodes.
Which are since Nov 2018 until June 2020 in CAPRICORN
(South Node, releasing of its Shadow) Let the Old Empire Expire – esp. since the Partial Solar Release Eclipse in CAP on Jan 5, 2019 – CANCER (North Node – embracing its Light) – Finding Home, brought out by the Total Solar ‘Seed’ Eclipse in CAN next to Sirius on July 2: Initiation into Liberation.

We’re in the climaxing conclusion of the karmic Nodal phase (which is always highlighted by Eclipses) of CAP (Lunar South Node) – CAN (lunar North Node) – since Nov 2018 until June 2020:
Because we Care.

 

 

What are the NODES in CAP – CANCER about?

Since they’re so important for this Eclipse, I’d like to expand on them and you might be interested in getting a good sense of them – also to recognize evidence in ‘real life’ (society, inter-personally, personally) and to be in synch with the cosmic invitation, and help evolution.

 

* Releasing the shadow of CAPRICORN which has such a weight now, via all these Planetary Archetypes sitting there now.
The South Node now in CAP has connected to almost all of these Planets in the meantime, showing low vibrational qualities of CAP that are ripe to be released now, re:


PLUTO – Power
The irresponsible use of, and external power over, rather than honouring Power within.


SATURN – Authority / Structures / Law / Time / Managing Resources
Inauthentic Authority via fear / control. Inefficient structures that waste and exploit resources and don’t work with better ones for corrupt reasons. Disrespect for Natural Law, while man made laws lack integrity. Waste of time, disempowering lack of time for people being in the ‘system’ / machine.


JUPITER – Growth
Does more more more production and consumption make us happy and give us meaning? Or is it just about the economy?


MERCURY – Communication
Disrespectful, lack of integrity, manipulative, condescending.

and the Eclipse SUN (Energy / Creativity) – activated by the Eclipses in the last year, incl the recent Ring of Fire Annular Solar Eclipse in CAP on Dec 25 / 26.
Using Energy for pseudo purposes of status and productivity in a way that’s not a sign of maturity, responsibility, or common sense, nor creative.

 

Bottom line, release, release, release of…

  • Prioritizing productivity, status, and ‘success’, at the expense of Nature and Mother Earth.
  • A linear, hierarchically separative, controlling ‘governing order’ that disrespects Natural Laws.
  • Artificial scarcity and misplacement of resources.
  • Commodification of everything – it’s all up for sale / use.
  • All types of exploitation and abuse, incl. self abuse via never having / making enough time / running out of time – by setting priorities that aren’t in alignment with what matters most – LIFE.

 

* Feeding and nurturing our compassionate, motherly, caring and protective CANCERian qualities – now brought out via the Lunar Eclipse – a lunar light switch to Compassionate Caring:

  • What, who, which Beings need our caring presence now?
  • Could be yourself (it’s gotta start with YOU!), and could me Mother Earth.
  • Gentle Lunar / Mary / Kuan Yin and Fierce Kali / Durga Mother Goddess (CAN) energies can be invoked to support and supply us with the energy to show our care (CAN) and to do what we’re ‘built for’ at this critical Time (CAP).
  • Finding our Way HOME…

 

Call of the Mountain – Photo by Melanie

 

The exact SoLunar polarity from Earth perspective is calling for Balance & Integration.

BALANCE of what?

The CAP – CAN axis is about safety and security issues.
To tending to feelings and needs (CAN), while going for voluntary simplicity, and working with resources in a timely manner (CAP).

How can we create a balanced relationship between these apparently opposing orientations?

  • CAN:
    Gentleness, compassion, nurturing our own and others’ needs, family, tribe, finding belonging, going with rhythms and cycles, protecting Nature and our loved and little ones with loving care.
  • CAP:
    Being mature and in integrity, living in leadership / leading by example, working with priorities, resiliently, respectfully, using time and resources well.

The two sides of the equation don’t have to be a dilemma but can synergistically cooperate.

SATURN in CAP asks us to take responsibility for our part in humanity whose greedy power (PLUTO) and control / authority (SATURN) structures have been exploiting and abusing Mother Earth (shadow of CAP) and her human, animal, and plant Beings that need protection and care (CANCER).
To have boundaries, disengage from this shadow wherever we can, and to Be the Change, and the Ones (of the more and more) who Care.
What matters is consistency and leading by example, rather than judging and blaming. Makes us feel better and more empowered too…

‘Just’ resisting and blaming external authority and power structures (SATURN / PLUTO) is not the way forward. It still feeds their energy field by giving them attention, acknowledges them energetically, and basically responds / reacts in an adolescent manner (SATURN retro).
How about claiming self-authority (SATURN retro), and ‘outgrowing’ old modes, 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 old fossilized top-down institutionalized world?!

 

 

How can the Full MOON / PLE that highlights the CAP – CANCER axis affect and inspire us personally?

 

  • Where / in what ways can we receive nurturing, satisfaction, and reward from being creative and resourceful and through working with what’s already available to us (CAP), rather than buying from / into the system that makes it convenient to consume (and promises status a la CAP) – but at what price?! 
    Here’s to ‘grass roots’ gardening, cooking, and to (re-?)learning / applying traditional home / building / repair skills!
    Let’s consume less. And have more time to play & create more!

 

  • Where-else can we respond to what’s sold to us by: “Thank you, I (already) got this.”, and be content with less?
    A la Refuse – Reuse – Repurpose – Recycle

 

  • Which wasteful (time, energy, resources) habits can we get out of, and establish higher vibrational ones that are more deeply satisfying?

 

  • How can we take more time doing what we’re best at?

 

  • Creative play & fun beat the heavy CAP vibes of ‘no time for that’…
    Maybe ‘even’ shifting the conditioned paradigm (SATURN in CAP) to: Play first, work later.
    Has been working great for me these days / months since the Nodes are in CAP – CAN. I just need to remind myself more often. 🙂
    Play puts me in an inspired and relaxed work mode, plus I get to see that ‘work’ and clients come to me not because I work so hard but because they love me and love what I offer, and how it affects them. And everything works so much more smoothly – and playfully – with resonance and connection.

 

If your Birthday is between JAN 8 – 15, JULY 8 – 15, or your MOON, AC, or Planets are esp. between 20 – 25º CANCER, CAPRICORN yet also ARIES or LIBRA, this Eclipse – and also the SATURN / PLUTO Conjunction (see below) are BIG for you – and you know it…

Here are some Questions to inquire, or do a Ceremony around: 

  • How can your needs be met, and your life be sustainable, in the context of the structures you are living in?
  • Do you need to make foundational changes? In the areas of life relating to (esp.) CAP / (yet also) CANCER in your chart (Houses)?
  • Do you need to downsize, to drop excess ‘weight’ (incl the weight of responsibility to manage what you got), to make life simpler, and have all that you need – plus more time?!
  • Is the structure / system you’ve been in changing?
  • What would be the smartest way of resourcefully adapting (late CAP has a VIRGO undertone) in a way that nurtures you, resonates with you, and puts you at ease (late CANCER has a PISCES undertone)?

 

CANCER – CAPRICORN is the axis of Family / Tribe and Elders / Leaders.
Additional questions round those themes:

  • How can important themes round home, family, belonging, safety, emotional needs, and on the other hand building of sustaining structures, responsibly working with time and resources, self-sustainability, and ‘s-aging well’ be reconciled?
  • In a time where nuclear and extended families in the traditional sense seem to lose their cohesiveness (or will there be a renaissance?) – what’s your world of home and family transforming into? Where and what is your family and home, in essence?
    Where does your Soul feel at home? Where is your tribe?
  • Who are the Elders and leaders you turn to for guidance? Who are your Spirit Elders?
    Your inner Elder might be waiting to connect with you.

 

The CANCER – multi-CAP Lunar Eclipse catalyzes the Epic Alignment of SATURN & PLUTO on Jan 12!
The Old Empire Expires.

SATURN and Earth – Hubble Space Telescope picture (NASA)

Not exactly new – a deep, slow & inevitable Process:
The Lunar South Node in CAP already connected last Spring / Summer with SATURN retro and with PLUTO retro close-by.
In the meantime (mid-Sept / early Oct) both Planets turned direct.
Their exact union will be Jan 12, 2020 – only every about 37-38 years! Now that already looks quite heavy, rocky, unmoving. Buuuut…

SATURN – PLUTO in combination are about cycles of societal structural breakdown, purging of the shadow, and rebuilding from the core / basics. Their last unions were in 1947 in LEO and 1982 in late LIBRA.

PLUTO (New Horizons Mission 2015)

The present SATURN – PLUTO alignment 2019 / 2020 in late CAP also approaches PLUTO in the U.S. Independence chart.
The U.S. will have their first PLUTO Return(!!!) since 1776 in the years 2020 – 2023.
Full circle from establishing a new nation while breaking away from the British Empire (Britain is ruled by CAP, can’t you tell?)… The American Empire is revealing its CAP PLUTO shadows – to transform and come back to its essence – as in: The Constitution, and to honour what and who came before the settlers: The People of / and the Land.
The CANCER Full MOON Seed / Birthing Eclipse will be close to the U.S. CANCER SUN. We, the People….?! All People.

Also, there will be a Lunar ‘Release’ Eclipse Full Moon in CAP – CAN ON July 4 / 5, 2020 – again pointing to releasing outdated ‘Empire’ structures, and coming back to the original Spirit (the SUN).

 

Let’s take a look at the SATURN – PLUTO 2020 chart:

 

As you see – and probably experience, we’re now in a huge CAP concentration:

Not only are SATURN & PLUTO aligned, but tightly interwoven also the SUN and MERCURY. JUPITER with the South Node also in CAP ‘stand by’.

The SATURN / PLUTO conjunction at 23º CAP on Jan 12, 2020 is 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 as a 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.

What happened via PLUTO in LIBRA on the ‘horizontal’ level is now due on the ‘vertical’ level of relationships.
The top-down 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.
We don’t have to participate in that ‘contract’ anymore, and can from the inside-out change low vibrations of fear & manipulation and upgrade them into respect, groundedness, and intrinsic power, in alignment with Higher Self, Soul Power, and the Power of the Cosmos.
We’re on the threshold of a New Era.

 

In the SATURN – PLUTO cycle, we’ve experienced in this millennium thus far the critical points of

The Opposition (SATURN in GEM – PLUTO in SAG) in 2001 / 02 –
Ground Zero and its Consequences.

The waning Square (SATURN in LIBRA – PLUTO in CAP) in 2009 / 10 – Effects of the 2008 Depression, yet also shifts in relationship between the individual and power structures.

One could argue that with the SATURN – PLUTO Conjunction, the controlling institutions (esp. via media & info technology) are even more fully established now. Yet also there’s such a momentum out of that ‘matrix’ and into ‘the real world’ where human connections and togetherness matters and aren’t mediated’ / controlled.


CAPRICORN rules Time and History.

And there hasn’t been such a concentration in CAP in ages.
That’s why THIS SATURN / PLUTO alignment is so significant, plus, there’s such a massive CAP concentration around it.


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-hierarchical ‘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, 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.
PLUTO represents the birth canal – forces of nature take over. Resistance to change is futile. A death leading to rebirth.


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.
Of course, the devastating bush fires in Australia come immediately to mind & heart in this.


On deep levels, the limited physical reality of our experience (SATURN) seems so solid (CAP) yet is an illusion / a ‘matrix’ if you will. We can shift out of old linear & limiting consciousness into freer ways of Being.
Consistently living (SATURN) from Soul Self / Essence (PLUTO) transforms old burdens, Karma, judgment and limitations, and shows:
All Life is Sacred.
The Spiritual and the Material are ONE.
Which is also much better for sustainable Living and Building – the purified and elevated CAP.

 

Strikingly, not ‘just’ SATURN, but FIVE Planets and the SUN have passed / will pass PLUTO.

Shiva Nataraj – the Dancing Shiva – helping with the Shadow Dance that transforms

 

  • VENUS in CAP passed PLUTO on Fri Dec 13, 2019.
  • MERCURY & SATURN in CAP pass PLUTO on Jan 12, 2020.
  • The SUN in CAP passes PLUTO on Jan 13, 2020.
  • MARS in CAP passes PLUTO on March 22, 2020.
  • JUPITER in CAP passes PLUTO on Apr 4, June 29 (both in retro), and Nov 12, 2020.

 

All of these Planetary Archetypes move into and through the CAP Shadow, to be transformed and regenerated.

VENUS
From attraction to status and power to the Power of Love.

MERCURY
From judge-mental thinking & communicating to calm & wise counsel.

SATURN
From a fear, scarcity, and control based ‘operating system’ to being resourceful & on purpose, embodying true mastery, maturity & responsibility, Living inner Soul Authority.

The SUN
From lack of energy and depression to pacing ourselves, going with natural cycles, and consistently restoring energy from within.

MARS
From heavy lifting and taking a lot on (could be an ego thing) to working with what we’re best at, and letting Higher Power take the lead.

JUPITER
From ueber productivity and being condescending / patronizing to using our gifts for the highest purpose – and give others space & trust to do the same.

 

Soooo, let’s not just wonder what happens ‘out there’ and externalize but do our own Shadow Work / Soul Work in this.
SOOO worth it (CAP likes that).

 

Wishing you from my Heart a soulful and regenerative Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Moon & SATURN (et al) – PLUTO Transformation!

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!

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.

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.

    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. 

 

  • The JUPITER / SATURN conjunction on Dec 21 / Winter Solstice 2020 – just days after both Planets will be OUT of CAP, and coming together on 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 as important mottos  for the next two decades 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

JAN 20

JAN 26 – 28
MARS in SAG in square with VENUS-NEPTUNE in PISCES.
Being in flow, surrender, and freedom. ONE Love.    

 

 

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.
 

 

9th House
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels
That ‘SAG House’.
Soo many growth opportunities that energize & motivate you, and you might want to act on these days. Abundance is an attitude… great phase for adventure travels.
 

 

10th House
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.
 

 

12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.
The Universe is vast and infinite. Amazing how you made it here!
Take it easy on the cosmic journey that never ends! Everything is possible – manifestation is on the horizon.

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?

Photo: Angers Cathedral South Rose Window of Christ (centre) with Elders (bottom half) and Zodiac (top half). Medieval stained glass by Andre Robin after the fire of 1451.
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)     

 

 

Gorgeous Mercury – Hubble pic by NASA

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!

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!
