CAPRICORN – CANCER Full Moon (with SATURN) on June 27 / 28: Soul-Full-Filling Completion

27 Jun

Dear Astro~News Reader,

The first FULL MOON of SUMMER 2018 is here to bless us – today June 27 (CDT and West of it) / June 28 (EDT and everywhere East of it)!

In CAPRICORN – as the SUN is now in CANCER.
Uhh, has it ever a strong CAPRICORN theme:
MOON / SATURN retro, PLUTO retro, LILITH, all in CAP!
And here on the West Coast even the Ascendant in CAP, since the MOON with SATURN would have just risen before Fullness!

I posted the Full Moon chart below – can you see the CAP concentration?

 

A Rising Beauty, next to the Ringed Planet – both shone upon by the SUN!

This also means, the SUN in CANCER was exactly opposite SATURN (once a year), this morning, June 27.
Authority Themes.
We’ve seen those also in the two CANCER countries of Canada (July 1, 1867) and U.S. (July 4, 1776) – with their leaders and governments (CAP) – that are in dire need of transformation (PLUTO).

The polarity of SOLAR creative, radiant authority vs. / AND the earned and experienced authority of the Elder (SATURN).

  • Have you experienced Authority issues / conflicts, in the build-up to the Full Moon?
  • Have you projected one side or the other onto ‘the other’ and gone into outer / inner confrontation?
  • Have you on the other hand experienced support by Elders and true authority that ignited your own creativity fire?
  • How are both sides already IN you, just waiting to be reconciled?
  • What needs to be balanced in this dynamic, so that the two sides that need each other can be complementary, and create a well-rounded Authority?


The Full MOON conjunct SATURN will rise on the Eastern horizon into exact Fullness at 9:53 pm PDT on June 27, here from the West Coast perspective!

Not an ‘easy’ MOON scape though…. you probably feel it.

Yet, it can be still full-filling – on a deeper level, as we connect with Elders and Ancestors, help complete old contracts, transform old contractions, and heal in the NEW and NOW (CHIRON in ARIES is in T-square with the Full Moon axis!).

 

In CAP, the MOON is in ‘exile’ – furthest away from its CANCERian ‘home’ with its warm, cozy and caring qualities, in safe momma-babe connection.
Rather cold and wintry?
Making sure resources are in?
Caring channeled into taking care of business?
Managing scarcity and fears?
An effort to be sustained?

If these themes come up for you, it’s time to take a look at old ancestral and societal conditioning and contractions around that.

I.o.w., with SATURN retro next to the MOON – an inquiry (take your time and do this at home):

  • What does the inner / old authority say to the need to be safe, cared for, and caring?
  • What were historic (PLUTO in CAP) traumas and hardship that your biological ancestors, Spirit Elders or your inner karmic journey went through?
  • How can you honour and acknowledge them?
  • How can the experience find completion in you, rather than you self-sabotaging (also a theme with SATURN retro), out of unconscious loyalty?
  • What helps in the deep transformation through time, and from your inner true Soul Nature (PLUTO retro and LILITH in CAP)?

This is the first Full Moon with, and super close(!) to SATURN since it entered CAP on Dec 19, 2017.
Their exact ‘date’ is just 1 hr 20 min before the Full Moon!
Even the astronomers suggest: Time to watch SATURN 😉


The Full MOON brings the SATURN in CAP themes that have been up for us in the last 6 months to a first fruition and maturation.
The Full Moon brings a monthly / 29-day (fertility) cycle to fruition, and SATURN brings a longer, 29-year cycle to maturation – full adulthood.

MOON / SATURN are also associated with children, family, motherhood & adulthood.
In one of the Astrology schools I studied, the Swiss API Institute for Astrological Psychology, SATURN is in the family triad associated with the Mother (the SUN as Father, and the MOON as the Child).

In other words, the Full MOON with SATURN is a prime opportunity to take a good look at our Mother-Child themes, and how they might be contrasted and highlighted by the (inner / outer) Father (opposition with the SUN).

How about creating a felt-sense mini-constellation (with placeholders from and IN nature, like rocks, flowers, twigs…) as a Full Moon Ceremony, and seeing how it moves in you?

 

The Moon – Transformation Cards, by Diana Varisco

 

The Moon (message on the back) – Transformation Cards by Diana Varisco

 

The Full MOON with SATURN in CAP ushers Transformation via PLUTO in:

  • What is your purpose and role in Evolution?
  • What transforms the old hierarchical / patriarchal structures of domination, subordination, separation?
  • Forming a chain and circle (AQ) of sisters and brothers in equality and cooperation beyond old hierarchies and separations IS building the NEW.

MARS now in AQ and going back into CAP (close to PLUTO) in Aug / Sept has just gone retro yesterday June 26, and will also help in overcoming old conflict, animosity, adversity and war, and activating the Inner Warrior of Change for Cooperation in Integrity.
Leading with this, and noticing the contrast to the old separating world sets an example that we all need and are nurtured by (MOON in CAP).

 

A ‘serious MOON business’ indeed. 
An important Full MOON.
Soul-Full-Filling Completion.

 

Plus, ‘Wounded Healer’ / Medicine Bringer CHIRON in early ARIES squares the Full Moon axis!

With this, the Full Moon initiates a theme that we’ll see throughout July and Aug:
The square (not precise but almost, and lingering) between SATURN retro in CAP and stationary / going retro (on July 4) CHIRON in ARIES.

So, it’s time to acknowledge early (ARIES) / passed-on / wounding ‘conditions’ and conditioning that have also matured us (CAP), and made us compassionate with ourselves and others (CAN).
CHIRON in ARIES brings healing and teaches us through the Medicine of emerging from the old, and being authentic in the NEW and NOW.


CAP themes
are related to accomplishment, success, responsibly stepping into our purpose, and committing to what’s not easy but what we’re ‘built for’, and what matters in the long run (rather than going for short term comfort), and doing the work, consistently.

An old / conditioned / lower / often ‘hidden in plain sight’ CAP shadow vibration it can be semi-/ unconsciously expressed through taking a lot on / labouring, carrying a lot / feeling burdened by the ‘load’ of…, feeling heavy and depressed, judged and judgmental, resentful, running out of time.

What’s your main theme in this?
It isn’t comfortable, but important to acknowledge what’s there, and has perhaps been building up for a very long time (CAP)…
Yet it can lead to an inner sense of completion – otherwise it goes in circles, because it IS about completion (and our sense might be it’s never complete).

 

This time I felt called to bring in the SABIAN SYMBOL for the Zodiac degree of the FULL MOON (6°28 CAP) and SATURN (5°48′ CAP) as a divination oracle which confirms this:

“CAPRICORN 6°:
TEN LOGS LIE UNDER AN ARCHWAY LEADING TO DARKER WOODS.

Log SeaScape with Crow. Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

KEYNOTE: The need to complete any undertaking before seeking entrance to whatever is to be found beyond.

Number 10 is a symbol of completion; it symbolizes even more the revelation of a new series of activities just ahead. Yet unless the concluded series is brought to some degree of fulfillment, nothing truly significant is likely to be accomplished by a restless reaching out toward the as-yet-unknown. Number 10 is a symbol of germination, but the seed (Number 9) must have matured well. No natural process can be accelerated safely beyond certain limits.

This represents the first stage in the fifty-sixth five-fold sequence.
It establishes a foundation for what will follow. Here we reach a THRESHOLD in which we may have to pause in order to safeguard our further advance.”

This Sabian Symbol is so apropos SATURN / FULL MOON in CAP – wrapping around that degree!

  • Where does this theme of completion ‘get you’ emotionally?
  • Where is a cycle coming to completion – and it’s ‘simply’ your job to acknowledge that? It might have taken quite some time, yet for some reason necessarily so.
  • Can you reconcile home, family, belonging, safety, emotional needs, and on the other hand (is it a dilemma?) long term building of sustaining structures, responsibly working with time and resources, and ‘s-aging well’?

Acknowledgement is a prerequisite for ‘completion’ (which CAP is about).

 

Yet, certain ‘conditions’ can’t be completed…. they have ‘a life of their own’ – and come to a natural evolutionary ‘repurposing’ transformation (nothing ever ‘dies’, it just changes form).

Acceptance of a natural impermanence and continuum takes us deeper into Living from Soul, and our in our True Nature
(as represented by PLUTO / LILITH in CAP – which the MOON will meet on June 29).

 

Let’s take a look at the FULL MOON Chart:

It illustrates the themes described above…

See the CAP Cluster on the Eastern horizon / AC?
Even MARS and the Lunar North Node will move into CAP
(MARS Aug 12 – Sept 10, the NN mid-Nov).

The MOON / SATURN in early CAP, and the SUN in early CAN squaring CHIRON in early ARIES:
What is the Medicine in the New and Now?

 

How do the Full MOON with SATURN, and their connection with PLUTO / LILITH in CAP show up for you? 

Do the themes above sound familiar?
What are you acknowledging (SATURN) and processing (PLUTO) about the ‘things of old’?

Esp. if your birthday is
end of June (early CAN),
end of December (early CAP),
end of March (early ARIES),
or end of Sept (early LIBRA)?

Or you might have your MOON, AC, or Planets in the early degrees of these cardinal signs (check out your chart, or let’s take a look together).


Then a lot of this is probably UP for you now / these days / months, and might culminate with the FULL MOON.

 

Important questions with the CAP Full Moon:

  • How can your basic-and-beyond needs be met, and your life be sustainable, in the context of the structures you’re living in?
  • Time for foundational changes (which may just ‘organically happen’), esp. in the areas of life relating to CAP / CAN in your chart, e.g.
    1st – 7th House: Self & Relationships,
    2nd – 8th House: Owning & Sharing,
    3rd – 9th House: Social / Local Environment & World at large,
    4th – 10th House: Home / Family & Public / Purpose,
    5th – 11th House: Creativity / Children & Community,
    6th – 12th House: Health / Wellness / Livelihood & Soul Service.
  • Do you need to downsize to keep life simpler, and have all that you need – plus more time?
  • Is the structure / the system you’ve been in changing? How is it sustainable? Where’s your part in the change.

CAP – CAN is the axis of Family / Tribe, and Elders / Leaders:

  • How can important themes round home, family, belonging, safety, emotional needs, and on the other hand (is it a dilemma?) long term building of sustaining structures, responsible working with time and resources, 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 / who 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.

All important questions to explore and LIVE now, under the Full Moon dynamic and beyond.

They’ll be deepened and brought even more to our consciousness when the CANCER SUN exactly opposes PLUTO retro in CAP on the DAY of the Partial Solar Eclipse / ‘Seed’ New Moon in CANCER on July 12 / 13, heralding the North Node from LEO into CANCER this Fall.

SATURN and PLUTO Stationary in April (Going Retro Apr 17 / 22): Inner Authority. Inner Soul Power.

17 Apr

SATURN the ‘Ringed One’ is (besides the ‘Winged One’ MERCURY) also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro today Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

 

 

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… 

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

PLUTO (New Horizons Mission 2015)

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose… 
PLUTO also in CAP (2009 – 2023) is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 

True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.

As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both in CAP and both go retro this month (which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS – PLUTO, and LILITH in CAP this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner Soul Power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

Much Love and Cosmic Blessings to YOU!

ARIES New Moon with URANUS, MERCURY Turnaround & CHIRON Entering ARIES: Breakthrough into the Authentic YOU!

14 Apr

Dear Astro~News Readers,

The energies from the pre-Easter Full Moon are getting turned up another notch – or a few:

You MUST feel this already – at least ‘in the making’ (as in: New Moon)!
Tomorrow’s New Moon in late ARIES comes with URANUS, and brings a liberating Firework:
Freedom from… Freedom for… and ‘simply’:

Freedom to be Authentically YOU!

Whatever is in the way, like polarization splits a la ERIS in ARIES (see my recent post for the Full Moon on March 31, with ERIS involved) is being recognized for what it is, and gets busted right on the spot.

No need to ‘assert or defend yourself’ (which is also an ARIES energy but always implies an ‘against’).
Simply be YOU! Says liberating URANUS, right next to the New Moon.

Which can perhaps look like this:
Being consciously (SUN) emotionally (MOON) free (URANUS).
Feeling it coming big time?

Imagine…
If more and more of us wake up and step into LIFE (ARIES) with this Power? It can have massive effects on our lives, onto society, humanity, and our Life on Earth.

I’d say this Spirit is pushing so strongly now to come alive that there’s no more holding back or regressing. 
Also catalyzed by MERCURY and CHIRON, wrapping round the ‘Emergence’ / “Come Alive” Point from PI to AR!

MERCURY is now stationary in early ARIES – going out of retro tomorrow Apr 15 – about 16 1/2 hrs before the NEW MOON:
How have you come to more authenticity in your conscious thinking and communication?
Maybe you caught yourself in old conditioned / fearful / fake / ‘strategic’ / pleasing-oriented inauthentic patterns in this MERCURY Retro phase since March 22, questioned this, and tried on a new approach? Ha, or ‘simply’ something authentic ‘escaped you’ and brought out what you really think. 🙂
Maybe you noticed that when you speak-as-you-are things flow, you come alive, and people really only meet you for real.
Thaaank you, MERCURY Retro!
More about MERCURY below 🙂

 

CHIRON is about to ‘Come Alive’ & enter ARIES on Apr 17!

…with stationary MERCURY as a ‘midwife’
For a try-on / preview phase until Sept 25, when it re-immerses itself into PISCES. And then from Feb 18, 2019 on, the full-on emergence of ARIES Medicine will show up.

All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
The Medicine is to be Authentically YOU!
Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 
Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (and ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about this state of Being.
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart.

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our…

Special ASTRO Medicine Parlour:
CHIRON Enters ARIES
The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!

Coming Monday Apr 16
Afternoon and Evening Group to choose from.

 

Let’s take a look at the ARIES NEW MOON chart…

…and see which other Archetypes show up now, reminding us to let their energies enliven us!
The ARIES NEW MOON will be exact at 6:57 pm PDT tomorrow, Apr 15.

 

Boom! There’s URANUS right next to the SUN and MOON Union in late ARIES.

URANUS has finally passed ERIS (their connection happened over the last 2 years, 2016 / 17. See the blog post for the last Full Moon, describing the theme – disruptive, shock and awe, ‘splitting’ and polarizing effects.

Their combined energy has been (well, one facet of it!) erratic, unpredictable, volatile (“You never know what comes next!”) which could have kept us on adrenaline / alert mode – and has also been used and ‘worked’ by ‘power players’.

Yet, on a higher vibrational mode (hey, good reminder: Astro Awareness is all about Raising your Vibration and be free – in my world anyway 🙂 ), it’s been a shake and wake-up call for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues that are up for transformation (PLUTO in CAP).
The Power is IN You.

As the shocking discordance producing scenarios are being integrated the (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity emerges big time now.
We the People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle anymore that’s based on being set up against each other.


The NEW MOON just past ERIS and approaching URANUS (the MOON unites with URANUS on Apr 15 / 16, and the SUN on Apr 18) is a strong momentum towards Conscious Breakthrough and Freedom.

The ARIES NEW MOON with URANUS is unaspected (stands by itself without a link to other Planets) – that really stands out too!
This dynamic has ‘a life of its own’, which could manifest as ‘being in the closet’. But not for too long, with URANUS:
Liberation is ready to be released!

 

‘Winged Messenger’ MERCURY at the Beginning of ARIES 

…freshly out of retro (at 2:21 am PDT = 16 1/2 hrs before the NM).

Hope you’ve also had lots of paradigm shifts of / from the mind, with MERCURY retro, while URANUS the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY (still) also in ARIES, on a transpersonal dimension has been rattling us to wake up.

MERCURY is now in post-retro ‘storm’ in its ‘U-turn’ from retro to direct – a re-adjustment time (like a ‘reverse culture shock’ which can happen when we come back from a re-treat to our ‘known’ environment). Let’s give it a week or so to integrate.

The ‘storm’ (MERCURY moving very slowly in forward gear) goes technically until Apr 24, followed by the post-retro shadow until May 4 (when it goes over the Zodiac degree zone which it went retro from = 17° AR).
A good time to process and start to act on ARIES Retro themes that have come up, a la “Back to the Beginning!”:

  • Did M-r re-connect you with people from the ‘beginnings’ when you started things / when you were new in town / in your work…?
  • Did it bring that spirit back?
  • Was that refreshing and re-inspiring, to bring you back to a ‘Beginner’s Mind’ approach?
  • Or did it show you (ha, the CAP contrast that also came up – MERCURY in triple square with SATURN): “Been there, done that. That was me in the beginning, Now with all my experience however…” (a fine line between being realistic and judge-mental).

Mainly, it’s about Authenticity and Origin-ality, with M-r in ARIES.

The stationary MERCURY invites CHIRON over from PISCES into ARIES: Being YOU is the Medicine!

MERCURY and CHIRON (only 5 degrees apart from each other, wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point cusp from PI to AR) are also unaspected. What brings you ‘back to life’? It’s YOUR Life.

 

Who else shows up for the ARIES New Moon Party?

As you see in the chart, there’s lots of cardinal activation in the New Moon and beyond: (Soon CHIRON), MERCURY, the SUN / MOON, URANUS, SATURN, MARS, LILITH, and PLUTO are all in cardinal signs, actually only two of the four: ARIES and CAPRICORN:

What are you initiating (AR), and where do you show up in leadership and integrity (CAP) – without taking too much on or becoming a scapegoat?!

 

Vibrant Country Goat

MARS in CAPRICORN having passed SATURN (Apr 2) will unite with LILITH on Apr 19 and with PLUTO on Apr 26!
A MARS activation happens only every 2 years.

MARS in CAP is a ‘kicker’ for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP, but also for the ARIES, CANCER, and LIBRA sides in us which aren’t by nature accomplishment oriented but can use a boost (inner / outer Spring clearing and ‘reno’ anyone?).

Check out my Astro~News blog for MARS in CAP 2018.

  • With MARS past SATURN, have you noticed (since early April) a shift to leave obstacles, frustrations, fears, shoulds, expectations, limitations behind and move on anyway?
    A challenge perhaps yet going ahead, with ‘right action’ is what matters.
    Congrats on the MARS – SATURN front!
  • Now as MARS meets LILITH this coming week, go with / come from what’s natural for and in you. Work with your time and resources (what you’re naturally good at, and what you have access to) , which is powerful and transformational (MARS / PLUTO – coming up end of the month!).
    Let Being in Your True Nature express itself. Work with your strengths, and be in your power.

 

Back to SATURN:
The ‘Ringed One’ is also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro on Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… ❤

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose…
PLUTO in CAP is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 
True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.


As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both go retro this month
(which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS, and LILITH this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

JUPITER this year in (PLUTO ruled) SCORPIO helps with revelations of what used to be under cover, hidden, taboo, in the closet – to evoke a change for the better.
With JUPITER presently (until July 10) retro it’s time to re-visit certain ‘dark corners’ that might look scary yet are important to clear, process, and transform.

 

VENUS now in TAU is about to go into opposition with JUPITER in SCO – (also on Apr 17): Enjoying this precious human embodiment with all our sense perceptions comes with seeing the bigger picture (JUPITER) of impermanence and change (SCO).

VENUS – JUPITER connect with the Planetary Archetypes in CAP, namely: MARS / LILITH / PLUTO:
How can we work with this human dilemma and tension (the joy of being alive vs. the changefulness) without engaging in attachment and suffering, in a ‘simple’, deep and mature way?
Maybe starting with some acts of voluntary simplicity (phew, can be applied in so many ways…).

 

‘See you’ next time, in person here in Victoria, online, here on this ‘blog channel’, on my FB Page, or on the email Astro~News!
Next one: for the AR New Moon to the SCO – TAU Full Moon / the Wesak Moon.

Many Blessings for the Liberation Journey!

The SUN Crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO to SAG: Rising – and Raising Vibrations, with the Inner Heart Light.

21 Nov

 

Today Nov 21 at 7:05 pm PST, the SUN moves from SCORPIO to SAG – across the ‘Phoenix Point’.
This week (started with the New Moon last Saturday) is very ‘Phoenix’ like:
We made it through ‘THIS’, burnt a lot through and off, and rise again… from the deep intense Scorpionic ‘underwater’ realm to a Fiery, Spirited Sagittarian sense of Knowing that might sound like: “We got through it, and see the picture more clearly now!”.
Yet, do we like what we see?
And do we really know where we’re going from here?

SATURN in SAG these years (Sept 2015 until Dec 19, 2017) doesn’t make the SAG Journey feel like a walk in the park or a joy ride. It’s been rather showing humanity the shadow of SAG:
‘More’ isn’t always ‘better’, and “I know better than you!”, “Our belief is superior to yours” heed karmic boomerang effects, are separative, and obstacles on the spiritual path.

Now we’re literally in the landing phase of SATURN in SAG – last 4 weeks!
An excellent time for a review of the teachings of the last years.
MERCURY will starts its retro journey also from close to SATURN (and will meet SATURN on Nov 7).
Let’s take time to reflect…

 

In combination with PLUTO in CAP, the Zodiac sign ruled by SATURN, deep, dense, old, historic power stuff layers built up over time, and running through societies and cultures is coming ‘up and out’ now.
Just saying: Plutocracy – Greek origin, literally: power of / dominion by the wealthy.
Here’s an excellent historic documentary film called Plutocracy that I found when researching.

In a simple astrological formula:
PLUTO = it gets intense as it changes.
CAPRICORN = “I use” (resources and time) / shadow: Abuse and exploitation – to ‘optimize’/ get the most out of it.

SAG and CAP are intertwined these days, via SATURN – which gives the ‘usual’ high-spirited SAG a heavier, weighty, shadow conscious, karmic tone – to mature and ‘ground’ the energy in integrity.

As we step into the SAG season of the year it has still a SATURN undertone:

  • What are truly the best gifts we can make to others and ourselves these days?
  • What’s with the ‘Christmas Spirit’ – independent of materialism?
  • What brings ‘the Return of the Light’?

 

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius. Painting by Johfra Bosschart

Indeed, where is the light in the SAG world these days?
The very grounded Hermit in the landscape of the Johfra painting holds a lantern, representative of carrying our soul light that sheds a spotlight on the step ahead but doesn’t allow us to get too much ‘ahead of ourselves’. A good image for SATURN in SAG.

Time to give ourselves the ‘Ring’, and commit to a Path of Heart and Cour-age. Let’s be rooted in our Hearts, and not be held back by fears, to follow our Heart!
Always a good reminder that the Sagittarian Archer/ess pulls the arrow back to her / his HEART while aiming high!

As we connect in Heart Consciousness we not only rise in our own vibration but raise vibrations that affect those around us, and energetically a whole ‘field’.

 

If you’re a Sagittarian by SUN sign you would have had SATURN on your SUN sometime between 2015 and end of this year, a major maturation of Spirit (that’s ‘due’ every 29 years), and perhaps some karmic ‘graduation tests’ too, when it comes to trusting yourself, your intuition and knowing, being in your natural authority, and on your Path.

 

Chakra Awakening

 

In the Chakras, the SUN is astrologically related to the CROWN Chakra, and SATURN to the ROOT Chakra.

I’m feeling called to offer another ROOT-to-CROWN Astrological Chakra Journey from early January on, possibly even already starting on Dec 28 – would be a beautiful alignment.
With SATURN then in CAP – very rootsy!

Let me know if you’re ready to come on board!
No prerequisites, re: Astrology or Chakras. An open mind and heart are good assets.
Here’s the FB Event for a previous journey, to give you a sense.

 

Much Love for the Sagittarian Times ahead!
May our Heart Light lead the way!
