MARS in CAPRICORN (Feb 16 – March 30): Gett’n Stuff Done. Integrity in Action & (RE)Builder Energy

5 Feb

Hi, Fellow CosmoNauts, as in: Travelers & Navigators in the Cosmic Realms!

Let’s face it:

MARS (Hubble Space Telescope)

We’ve come a long way, with MARS moving (us) through SAG, since Jan 3! Hope you had a motivating and insightful time, Truth & Freedom moved you, and Spirit called you to follow your Heart!
And that your own SAG themes got activated in a way that sets you free.

On Feb 16, the energetic Warrior Archetype and ruling Planet of ARIES (which is so fresh and ‘hot’ these days, via VENUS, LILITH, and CHIRON) moves over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAPRICORN where we’re called to DO what we know and say, follow up on those high-flying visions and promises, do the work, and build what matters and lasts.

Here on the Canadian Pacific NorthWest Coast we’ve seen loads of snow mid-January, and massive rain (15-year record floods) in the last 2 weeks, which the meteo predictors promise will seize now. Hope and trust has carried us through. And once the light returns – in this case with MARS in CAP – the clean-up work begins.

When a Planet moves into a new sign we usually see shifts / events expressing the themes. Let’s watch for ‘hot’ Integrity Issues mid-Feb.
AND: On that very DAY, MERCURY in PISCES goes retro! This can be interesting…

 

Once MARS is solidly in CAP, all the CAP issues that have built up over the Winter and was strongest in Dec / Jan, esp. via the SUN, MERCURY, VENUS, JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO – culminating with the Full Moon / PLE on Jan 10 / the epic & epochal SATURN – PLUTO alignment on Jan 12 – are getting energized via MARS.
Great boosts for Evolution. It can also lead to anger at the system, and outbursts of violence. Let’s give energy to constructive outlets of building from integrity.

In its 2-year cycle, MARS hasn’t been in CAP since Spring to late Summer 2018 (then also retro).
Do you remember, was it a productive time for you?
Of course, the circumstances have changed since then, and the Astro Sphere too. Therefore we can’t compare directly, yet there might be parallels.

 

MARS in CAP is an upgrade of the Masculine.
It also reminds me also of David Deida’s work
 “The Way of the Superior Man”.

His book from 1997 was ground-breaking in the Men’s Movement.
In an audio book presentation (excerpt here), he intriguingly addresses three levels of masculinity:

  1. Grow for your own sake – I’d call it “Personal MARS”.
  2. Share and cooperate – “Interpersonal MARS”.
  3. Realize that everything is only change. Come to terms with death of everything which doesn’t stop the Superior Man from giving – he IS the giving. Feel your deepest purpose. – “Transpersonal MARS.”

 

MARS in CAP is a solid energy that holds everyone (esp. oneself and those in leadership) accountable, AND helps us to be responsible, step up to the occasion with our cap-acities, and get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
CAP keeps it real, and doesn’t like waste of Time and Energy.

Time to get going with those long awaited Spring projects! Hey, we got the energy and motivation now (no more excuse / blame, ha-ha), plus, thankfully the days are getting longer. CAP loves working with the Seasons.

MARS is considered ‘exalted’ in CAP (top position for MARS in the Zodiac)
Think: persistence, endurance, mountaineer, marathon runner, and builder… sustainable energy to reach a goal.

Let’s USE (yay, a buzz word for CAP) the Time and Energy as it’s available.
Plain and simple.
CAP likes Simplicity, and sticking to Priorities.

What does that mean for the CAP sides in us (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, Nodes)?

Well, they get an energy boost, to be even more Capricornian, in terms of accomplishing and completing (yay! finishing!) what we’ve set out to do. Yet not the old hard, fear & control based way.
DO it, says MARS in CAP, you got the Energy now… well paced, and with consistent engagement. 

That’s for sure: The CAP side in your chart (either via Planets, SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or in any case the House/s CAP lives in) gets an energy boost.



If you feel called let’s check that out for you personally, and direct the energy in a good way, via a private session. 
You can even use the Flash Focus Sessions ($ 44 for 44 min, on until March 4) for that.

Just contact me via email (licht@islandnet.com), and we set it up.

 

 

 

What’s the Itinerary for MARS in CAPRICORN 2020?


What’s the Cosmic Activation it brings into the mix / Astro Weather, as it contacts other Planets
?

Rule of thumb, re the dates given below:
The energy is active / available in the whole week around the dates when it climaxes.
The build-up time is usually stronger than the outflow phase.

 

FEB 16
MARS enters CAP – Lead ON!
Moving forward with vigor and integrity.
What motivates YOU to accomplish what really matters?
What sustains your energy?

 

FEB 20 / 21
MARS in early CAP squares LILITH & CHIRON in early ARIES, and in Earth Trine with URANUS in early TAU.
Showing up in our authentic Nature (rather than in survival mode) is the Medicine that gives us a kick to get into gears and do what’s timely and has Priority. Freedom’s on the other side (and with us all along).
And hey, this can also mobilize women in / towards / against status-quo leadership.

 

FEB 24
MARS in early CAP meets the Lunar South Node, and opposes the Lunar North Node in early CANCER.
Just because it’s challenging / just because some authority said so, or we would ‘usually’ feel obliged / guilty we don’t have to do it (esp. not the hard way). Let’s lead with gentleness & care.

 

MARCH 14
MARS in mid CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in mid PI.
Great time for work flow. And to be in connectedness which naturally leads us to what matters most.
There’s always primo energy for it available.

 

MARCH 20
MARS in late CAP meets JUPITER.
Looots of energy – for what brings out our Best and what we’re built for
(yet it might have been hard to tackle thus far).
Let’s use that energy – round Spring Equinox!
Also great for Spring cleaning, of course.

 

MARCH 22
MARS in late CAP meets & passes PLUTO.
Whoooaa – Power House / Super Hero energy.
Likely the highlight of the MARS in CAP Transit – and it can express on different levels:
Transforming anger into productive work.
Moving Mountains? What needs to change to accomplish this…?
Societal structures change when shadow comes out.
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Doing the Soul Work.

 

MARCH 30
MARS enters AQ
(until May 12)
Coming to the end of what YOU can do?
It takes a village / team / humanity to collaborate.
All things CO- rock.

 

MARCH 31
MARS freshly in AQ passes & initiates / activates SATURN (also freshly in AQ since March 21 – first phase until July 1).
Beyond old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal / hierarchical control, there’s Freedom. 

 

MOON – MARS Contacts

Besides the Martian activation / inter-action with other Planets, we’ll also feel (maybe even more personally) the weekly dynamics between the MOON and MARS – whenever the MOON makes a sharp aspect angle from a Cardinal sign (ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, CAP) to MARS in CAP, either via conjunction, square, or opposition.
Yes, a great time to get work done. Just don’t work yourself up emotionally. And rather find a healthy / productive action outlet for anger than turning it against other Beings.

Here are the dates – mark your calendar:

FEB 18 
MOON in CAP meeting MARS

FEB 26
MOON in ARIES squaring MARS

MARCH 4
MOON in CAN opposing MARS

MARCH 11
MOON in LIBRA squaring MARS

MARCH 18
MOON in CAP meeting MARS

MARCH 26
MOON in ARIES squaring MARS

 

 

Where is MARS’s Rock-Solid Action Boost in CAP Happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP? Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in CAP, since ‘he’ also activates your CAP Archetypes. They get a boost of energy – to show up and do the work.   

Saturn Rules Capricorn – Painting by Johfra Bosschart

And for all of us, whichever House/s CAP inhabits in our birth charts is the manifestation realm – The corresponding area of Life is about making something real – because it matters.

 

Our CAP House/s – we all have one (or two) – is the area of life where we’ll get activated by the MARS Effect – which can also be about turning conflict into doing the good work!

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House
Your Creativity, Your 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.

 

May we all USE and work with the time and energy of MARS in CAP for the highest purpose! 

Melanie

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 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?

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

24 Dec

Dear Cosmic Friend & Astro News Reader,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

JAN 1, 2020
Day One of the new decade

 

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

 

JAN 3 
MARS goes over the Phoenix Point into SAG.

 

JAN 6
Epiphany – Magi Day / Astrologer’s Day

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

DEC 28
MERCURY enters CAP.

Walking the Talk. Keeping it real.  

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Yoda Sage got timeless basic wisdom a la Mercury in CAP

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

 

Wishing you a real cool time with MERCURY in CAP!

JUPITER goes over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP (Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 19, 2020): Working with Energy Optimally & for the Highest Good

24 Nov

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro Friends!

Welcome to an epic feature!
Well, you got time to read & digest it I’d hope…

 

It deserves a solid

Overview of what you find below:

  • 2020 will be a Historic Year.

  • U.S. Election Year with JUPITER / PLUTO in CAP

  • JUPITER’s Move over the Integrity Point

  • Welcome to the CAP Lands!

  • SOOO JUPITER in CAP…!

  • Main Transits of / to / during JUPITER in CAP (Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 19, 2020)

  • JUPITER into CAP Astro Parlour on DEC 2

  • JUPITER in CAP – Historically, and Yours

  • JUPITER’s Transit in CAP in Your Chart & Life…

 

Capricorn the Mythological Sea Goat

Big & important news – which you probably already anticipate:

JUPITER will move over the ‘Integrity Point’ cusp from SAG to CAPRICORN on Dec 2, to magnify the Zodiac energy of the fish tailed Goat for a year and a bit (until Dec 19, 2020).  

What does that en-tail?

Well, as per JUPITER (and other V.I.P.’s – very important Planets – of 2020), a LOT.

Yet, CAP likes things simple & straightforward.
So here’s the general – and stunning – gist of the time line (CAP loves timing).

 

Upfront, I dare to prognosticate:

2020 will be a Historic Year.

There are just TOO many significant astrological markers / alignments to ignore:
 

JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO – all 3 in CAP – will be the main activating Planetary Archetypes (PA’s) in 2020, indicating societal-collective closures, shifts, and new beginnings with the evolution that’s already going on. 
Yes, CAP even rules the factor / dimension of Time itself.

An Era is decaying, ending, collapsing (SATURN – PLUTO), to make room (JUPITER) for a new one.
As both JUPITER & SATURN will enter AQ and meet right at the first degree (0º28′) AQ in their ‘Great Conjunction’ (every 20 years) on Winter Solstice(!) 2020, the foundation for the AQ era of Collaboration in Community can be set.
Well – that’s the bright side / if all goes well. It can also turn into a system-over-people world.
Fair warning, says CAP. So that we heed the dangers, and live the energies from a higher vibe.

 

The JUPITER – SATURN – PLUTO alignments come in 4 steps,
starting already with the biggest and rarest one:

 

  • JAN 12
    The (much anticipated) SATURN – PLUTO conjunction (every 37 – 38 years, last time 1982/3) at the end of CAP.
    The dying shadow of the Old and unsustainable control structures / the evidence of what’s essentially destructive. The Old Empire expires. Its shadow is blatantly evident by now.
    Simultaneously, the seeds for rebuilding from Integrity & Soul Purpose are being planted.

    NO Planets retro by then. Things can move forward / along quite swiftly.
    Stay tuned for the special SATURN – PLUTO 2020 feature here on this channel – and other ones.

 

  • APR 4 (I) – again JUNE 29 (II) and NOV 12 (III)
    The triple JUPITER – PLUTO conjunction (every 13 years) at the end of CAP.
    Big Time (JUPITER) Power-to-Change (PLUTO).
    Knowing why Living from Integrity & Working with Energy for the Highest Good is SO important.
    Abuse of power / corruption / destructiveness of the Old Model can also become super obvious, to give even more motivation to live up to the new and simple vision.
    Again NO retro Planets early Apr at JUP & PLUTO’s meeting #1. 
    And yes, expect a special JUPITER – PLUTO 2020 feature.

 

  • MARCH 21 – JULY 1
    SATURN does a first ‘test run’ in AQ which it eventually enters (after essentially 3 years in its own sign CAP) on Dec 16, 2020 for the following 2 1/2 years. 
    SATURN on the CAP – AQ cusp in 2020 brings Responsibility of / in Society / Humanity (beyond the current SATURN-in-CAP notion to bring out our best, and build authority and self responsibility rather than depending on being governed by hierarchical & organizational structures of authority).
    It’ll be all about (next level) Collaboration in Community and Networks / Systems. Perhaps not easy but an important priority (SATURN).
    Yep, of course SATURN into AQ 2020 shall be a special feature too, in due time 🙂

 

  • DEC 17 – 21
    Another hugely important phase in 2020:
    JUPITER enters AQ and almost immediately meets with SATURN – on Winter Solstice!
    A 20-year socio-political-economical cycle (since May 2000 when they met in TAU) ends, and a new one starts on the 1st degree of AQ: Networks of Community / Humanity Collaboration.

 

It really IS rare to see so many significant alignments of slow moving Planets all in one sign (CAP), and all in one year.
JUPITER will be the magnifyer / amplifyer.

 

U.S. Election Year with JUPITER / PLUTO in CAP

It will be interesting (to put it mildly) to see how the Historic Year with so much CAP will be reflected in the U.S. elections on Nov 3, 2020 and the build-up year.

 

It could look like more conservatism IF people buy into fear / control / law & order, and look for a ‘strong leader’ (all rather low vibes / projections of JUP in CAP).

Yet the elections happen just before the 3rd of 3 JUPITER – PLUTO alignments of the year (on Nov 12) – Power-to-Change (PLUTO) and Integrity are prone to come into the picture Big Time (JUPITER).

At the end of JUPITER / SATURN in CAP it becomes obvious where too much CAP style government needs to end.
The ‘Great Conjunction’ of JU-SAT on Dec 21 closes a 20-year socio-economic cycle that started in 2000 in TAU. Next year, it’ll fall on the first degree of AQ – paradigm shifts and a new era are in the making…

The U.S. are also gearing up to have their first PLUTO Return in history!
On July 4, 1776, PLUTO was at 27º 33′ CAP where it’ll be again for the first time since
(in its 248-year cycle!) 2021 – 2023, before entering AQ in Jan 2024.
A deep historic change from the inside-out – back to the core essentials of the American Constitution? The American Evolution?!

 

JUPITER’s Move over the Integrity Point

Dec 2 is the Day:
JUPITER makes its yearly shift from one Zodiac energy to the next.

Coming out of SAG (which JUPITER is associated with and where it’s been offering lifting, shifting, elevating, liberating perspectives since Nov 8, 2018) seems to be somewhat a hard act to follow.
Yet a necessary & natural next level.

 

JUPITER in CAP – after JUPITER in SAG

While JUPITER is at Home in SAG where it ends its Journey in these days, it is traditionally ‘in Fall’ (most challenged) in CAP.
Without going into black-and-white / good-and-bad polarities / judgment (which in itself could be one of the issues of JUPITER in CAP, ha-ha), suffice to say, CAP isn’t per se a fun energy, rather hard working, pragmatic, persevering, and / or: Keeping things simple – so that there’s less to take on and worry about.

Reminds me of ZEN – a JUPITER-in-CAP Way of Being, if you will. 
Before, during, and after enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.

When JUPITER freshly in CAP almost immediately (on Dec 8) squares CHIRON in ARIES, the message is:
Start simple. And simply get started.
Could be a bumper sticker / fridge magnet.

 

Well, let’s honour the JUPITER in SAG year before the transition happens!

Hope like myself, you had an overall uplifting year of seeing, of finding your path and your truth, and a year full of reasons to be grateful for.
Even though, some of the experiences and seeing were linked with perhaps hard, and always grounding lessons & processes a la SATURN & PLUTO, both presently in CAP (esp. in Sept. / early Oct when stationary SATURN & PLUTO in CAP were squared by LIBRA Planets) – which helped restrain and channel the otherwise overly optimistic, idealistic, exuberant, and even excessive ‘anything goes’ / ‘it’s all good’ energy of JUPITER in SAG.
Overall, hope you can attest: There have been many occasions to appreciate the blessings and gifts (even and esp. the ones in disguise – seen with higher JUPITERian perspective)!


Both Planets JUPITER & SATURN in their respectively ruled signs in 2019, plus NEPTUNE in its ruled PISCES, plus these three Planetary Archetypes dancing with each other in triple alignments gave the year an overall theme of Spiritual Teachings, Gifts and Blessings – often via letting go.
Trust the Journey, trust in God, yet: tie up your Camel 🙂

Lots of epic Journeys I’ve been traveling on this year, outer and inner, and many wishes have been fulfilled, under JUPITER in SAG. Lots of new and shifted perspectives were given too.

I’m ever so grateful for the gifts and opportunities, for amazing reunions and encounters, for having been shown – and walked – my truth and freedom, and for feeling inspired, guided and protected.

Appreciating & honouring the gifts and blessings is the first part of the Solstice-y transition of JUPITER from SAG to CAP.
What are we doing with the gifts? How are we using them? 
How are we walking our talk, and leading by example?
How are we working respectfully and optimally with the Energy that’s given?

Leads us over to the CAP Lands….

 

Call of the Mountain – Photo by Melanie, Dec 31, 2017

 

Welcome to the CAP Lands!

 

The SAG – CAP cusp that JUPITER will cross is the Winter Solstice Point.
Which I also call the Integrity Point.
Rock-solid as a Mountain.


CAP is the hardest, most solid Earth sign, ruled by hard-core SATURN.
Horned goat – yet with a fish tail(?!) – capable of operating on land and in the waters?
I like the version of mythology where the mysterious fish goat is a symbol of attaining mastery
(the summit of the mountain that the goat has climbed) yet making the merits compassionately available to all, and swimming in the ocean of unity (the fish). 
Another expression of the integrity theme – whatever you attain, it ain’t just ‘yours’….


In the CAP season after Winter Solstice, beyond trusting the Return of the Light and cultivating the inner Heart Light (as per SAG), we conserve energy, and work with the actually Returning Light. Gradually, like climbing a mountain, the daylight minutes are getting longer, yet Winter has only just started.
CAP is very resourceful and doesn’t (can’t afford to) waste energy incl. time.
Everything useful has to be used – for the best purpose – to get through the Winter or make it on / up the Mountain.

Now, that’s the traditional world of CAP. 

In our ‘civilized’ and industrialized ‘post-modern’ world and era, working optimally with limited / finite Earth resources a la CAP has especially recently (since PLUTO has entered CAP in 2008) become a main issue – not only of the Zeitgeist / as a Renaissance but an intense matter of survival or extinction of many animal and plant species, and even of humanity (while some CAP elite are constructing elaborate survival ‘fortresses’ and ‘exit plans’ to Mars…). Sadly, a deadline threat in the most literal sense.

Well yeah, as we know, we’re in this dire situation now mainly since Earth’s resources have been squandered and greedily exploited (shadow of CAP) through disrespectful, extensive-intensive industrialism and CAPitalism fixated on quantitative consumerism ‘growth’  (incl. in-built obsolesce).

Worth checking out / revisiting the educational and motivational Story of Stuff (originated in 2007 – 12 years ago when JUPITER aligned with PLUTO end of SAG – what a story!) and its variants. “A fact-filled look at the underside of our production – consumption – waste patterns.” If it only had caused more change then already….!
Sadly, the collective consciousness & conscience has taken all this time to catch up.

 

Yet, it’s not JUST a matter of finite / scarce resources but of seeing and using perhaps unused and underestimated resources.
That’s where JUPITER in CAP can come in.

Integrity a la CAP means, to treat the Winter Solstice gift of the Returning Light, and the Christmas gifts with honour and respect, to use them well, not to ignore them, nor abuse them.
I.o.w., to see / treat / use / work / build with what’s provided here-now, for the Highest Good, and in a timely manner.

 

Inquiry / Inventory Questions for the Integrity Point Activation:

  • What have been the Gifts you received in the last year (and beyond)?
  • Which of your inner Gifts have you been shown / reminded of?
  • What would be the best way of doing something with them?
  • How can this implementation bring out your Best?
    Not to say it’s easy but can be very rewarding – a theme JUPITER in CAP just loves.
  • How can your Best serve the Greater Good?

Tips:

  1. Make a Gifts & Resources Inventory.
    Do it. Always makes a huge difference to put things down on rather than just contemplating.
  2. Then let the Gifts & Resources show you (JUPITER) how they want to be used (CAP) to bring out your Best, and serve the Highest Good (CAP).
  3. Which one has priority (CAP)?
  4. Get started with the Implementation.
    Don’t wait until all these…. conditions are met (a CAP trap).

    CHIRON in early ARIES, squaring JUPITER in early CAP already on Dec 8 says:
    There’s good Medicine in getting started. Start with the most important one, and keep it simple for starters (CAP).

 

SOOO JUPITER in CAP…! 

Wherever JUPITER travels – that area of the Zodiac gets enhanced and magnified.
With a tendency to get the bigger picture, and ‘make it better’.
Simple formula: It gets bigger so that it can get better.

JUPITER’s attributes are: “VERY…” and “SO MUCH…”.

In the CAP World that translates into:


  • SO evident now and more over the next year that – and why! – the Old Empire expires.

    A process that’s been obviously with us for a while now, and quite acutely since this year 2019, initially activated by the Partial Solar (Release) Eclipse in mid  CAP on Jan 5. 
    In this blog post you can read more about what I mean by ‘Old Empire’ – and you prob. resonate in your own ways with the theme. 

    There’ll be a second CAP Partial Solar (Release) Eclipse this year on Christmas Day Dec 25(!).
    Another ‘lights-off/on’ pointer showing where things come to an end to make room for the New.
    JUPITER in early CAP will be even aligned with the Eclipse New Moon, m
    aking things more evident (one of my already key words for JUP in CAP). As in: The end of a materialistic & greedy show-off Christmas.
    Being content with less.  Celebrating the true Spirit of the Season.


    To the left-above is the chart for that Eclipse with JUPITER – to give you the picture…
    More about the Eclipse New Moon of course in separate post closer to the date.

 

  • JUPITER in CAP is VERY serious and responsible.

    The Climate Strikes / School Walk-outs we’ve seen will ‘not go away’ and continue to call for action and implementation of restrictions to damaging & devastating effects on Nature and our Home Planet, and a responsible change of human behaviour and lifestyle.

    CAP New MOON / CHIRON / MERCURY retro born Greta Thunberg (* Jan 3, 2003) is such an ageless leader, and conscience of humanity, and a model of persistently standing the ground on behalf of something in essence simple and super important that needs to be taken seriously and addressed as a priority.


    She hit the PLUTO / SATURN in CAP Zeitgeist, and Youth around the World respect her more than the elected ‘Old Empire’ leaders.

    To the right you can see her chart – for 12 noon, since her birth time is not released.
    The SATURN-PLUTO almost-union 2019 has been on her MOON in CAP (the need to be respected and to have basic needs met, as in: the need for a future as an adult). It became a transpersonal and societal theme, and put her with the simple yet consistent and powerful message – from a young woman, childlike yet ageless – to a position where she and Youth her age have to be respected in their urgent call for action.
    SATURN – PLUTO in actual union on Jan 12, 2020, just after her 17th birthday, continue to powerfully activate her MOON, followed by JUPITER. 
    Working with energy optimally and for the Highest Good – the future of Life on Earth – is certainly what Greta and the Movement are all about.

    With JUPITER entering CAP the issue of how we work with resources gets even more magnified and bigger – so that the situation gets better! May it be SO.

 

  • The serious and heavy CAP energy can show up (Big Time even with JUPITER) as on-going uncaring, disrespectful, non-acknowledging, depressing / repressive experiences that make us shut down, become jaded, cynical, world weary and give up on showing up (“What’s the point?!”) since we feel ineffective.
    SO important to be aware of, tend to, and outgrow (JUPITER) those phenomena with JUPITER in CAP.

    Usually these CAP monsters show up when we’re isolated and / or too hard on ourselves.
    So important to not let ourselves go down that slope, and to practice the awareness: We’re not alone, and this is not all on us alone.
    AQ post-CAP brings networks and collaboration in – with the right people / in the right groups – an important theme for  JUPITER / SATURN in early AQ 2020 / 2021.

 

  • JUPITER in CAP is about Aging Well.
    This relates of course also to supporting Planet Earth to Age Well, to keep Life on Earth going and regenerative.
    What goes for the Earth Body also goes for our Human Earth Body.
    As in: Keeping things natural, balanced, and simple, and going with timeless lived wisdom.

 

  • CAP & the Elders
    CAP represents also accumulated life experience.
    Hence, JUPITER in SAG is about Honouring the Elders, and their wisdom-through-experience.


    Canada’s re-elected CAP born PM Justin Trudeau (* Dec 25, 1971) – to the left is his birth chart – will have a Solar Eclipse with JUPITER on his Christmas birthday this year – as he turns 48 and will come closer to his CHIRON Return.

    I.m.o., a pre-requisite for becoming PM / President would be to be post – CHIRON Return i.o.w. post 50 years old – unless you got a prominent CHIRON in your chart – like Greta does.


    Well, let’s envision and hope he and his elected Empire (the electoral system is another story…) will come around and live up to true Integrity when it comes to First Nations and otherwise.
    As an aside, J.T. has basically NO Water in his chart. His MARS is on the very last degree of PISCES, leaning over to its ruled ARIES and links to CHIRON / MOON there.

    No more broken promises / pipe(line) dreams and acquisitions.
    What does real Truth & Reconciliation – not from another governmental ‘higher position’ – mean?!

    The Elders, First Nations, stewards of the land and the Land (CAP) have to be honoured – and need to be in a position of counsel! – , damage has to be repaired, and no new damage done.

 

  • I say it again: JUPITER in CAP is about Honouring the Earth. 
    2020 will be a very Earthy year.
    What does honouring Mother / Planet Earth mean to you???
    The natural world is dying, and time (CAP) is of the essence.
    How can we do our share in timely improvement?
    How can we take the example of the young resourceful and persistent ones?
    Be resilient ourselves, and not give up even as the going gets tough?

 

  • Another key theme for JUPITER in CAP: Historic Perspective.
    As I said, 2020 will be a Historic Year.
    Yet / and nothing really IS a precedent. We can learn from history, apply and implement what had been already shown to us in the Past, or learn from ‘mistakes’ and not repeat damage.

    One example: The Berlin Wall having come down 30 years ago, Nov 9, 1989.

    New walls and fortresses on all levels (SATURN phenomena) are being built. Why?!!!
    What’s the real purpose? What does it have to do with fear / control? Locking people in or out… How can the real issue be addressed differently, with a better vision, and to really improve the situation (JUPITER)?


    A LOT could be said re: Historic Perspective from the astrological side.
    J
    ust some examples here:

    * JUPITER cycles:
    JUPITER was the last time in CAP Dec 2007 – Jan 2009.

    Hmmm, first association is the U.S. depression in 2008.
    Learning from the rather recent history?!

    * A 20-year socio-economic JUPITER-SATURN cycle will close end of 2020.
    It started in 2000 with JUPITER-SATURN and MARS in TAURUS. Conservative & consumer oriented – with the notion of Earth Consciousness kicking in about half-way, as PLUTO entered CAP in 2008/9.
    The new cycle starts on the 1st degree of AQ:
    Co-creating new systems in / for / as Humanity.

    * SATURN-PLUTO in CAP (exact on Jan 12, 2020, witnessed and enhanced by JUPITER in CAP) will close a 38-year cycle that started in 1982/83 end of LIBRA.
    The transformation (PLUTO) of up to then solid societal structures (SATURN) landed in the ’80’s in:

    Culture and esp. relationships.
    Breakdown of old models, esp. of trad. marriage as an institution. What an increase since then in divorces and separation of couples who couldn’t be forced anymore to stay together. The end of PLUTO’nic shaming and denying / repressing of incompatibility and outgrowing of the purpose why they committed. Along with empowered equality of genders – extended in the last years to same sex marriage and LGBTQ rights and acknowledgment. Conscious uncoupling is a recent trend, at the end of this SAT- PLU cycle.

    How can that transformation and empowerment of equality in (any) relationship that has developed in this era be transferred onto CAP matters?
    While LIBRA represents a ‘horizontal’ balance CAP rules the ‘vertical dimension’, where structures of / and leadership will be subject to transformation and regenerated power.
    This much here…
    More about the epic, historic SATURN – PLUTO conjunction 2020 closer to the date. Stay tuned.

    RE: Historic Perspective, here are a few examples of public and (unfortunately TOO) influential figures born with hard core JUPITER in CAP:

    Adolf Hitler (MOON / JUPITER in CAP)
    Richard Nixon (MARS in SAG conj. MERCURY / JUPITER in CAP)
    Margaret Thatcher (JUPITER in CAP in T-square with PLUTO in CAN and a LIBRA Stellium).

 

  • So what’s then Working with Energy optimally & for the Highest Good?

    Voyager Man of Worlds – Achiever


    CAP is a Builder.
    Buuut, JUPITER says, we don’t want to see just more and higher building and less belonging
    – which has been such a trend over the last years.

    Building & buying as capitalist / investment moves have superseded the notion to make a home and belong.
    Building an Empire has become a highly desirable notion and worldwide ‘virus’.
    Big time ego driven materialism with a big shadow attached.

    Post-modern city dwellers in their self-sufficient life boxes / cubes (there’s even a car with that name), tablets, and screens. What does all this pile up to?
    And what’s the ‘next level’? 

    Well, it comes down to, and hopefully dawns on more of us this Christmas with the Eclipse New Moon what the true Spirit of Christmas & Solstice really is, and how to celebrate THAT.

    CAP is the builder & achiever in the Zodiac. 
    This year with JUPITER in CAP offers such an opportunity to build based on what we truly and deeply value – not just more CAP stuff, ‘productivity’, and time eating activities that take us away from what Life is really about…
    SATURN / PLUTO in CAP have been and continue to do their job at showing us what the unsustainable shadow is.
    Hints:
    Building from / for status and ego, and to contribute to the status quo of the old dominance & control model.
    Being opportunistic can be a temptation of JUPITER in CAP – doing things uber pragmatically, just because they promise success and recognition / being in the ‘establishment’, making your mark on the world or on the Moon.
    The means don’t justify the (even questionable) ends.
    What’s with basic (CAP) ethics (JUPITER)?


    Accomplishment & completion are high CAP values – yet, the work is ‘never done’… can we find fulfillment (JUPITER) in the doing of what’s in front of us?

    For JUPITER-in-CAP
    (the year, in us…) lots of fulfillment can come from work – yet: Is that an old / parental / societal conditioning that plays itself out conditionally (“I only feel happy when I get the work done” “Good boy / girl!”)?
    Time to outgrow it, with JUPITER in CAP, aided by SATURN / PLUTO.



    Working for & serving the highest good may be as ‘basic and simple’ (CAP) as tending to home & family, friends & community, nature and our fellow animal & plant Beings, helping those in need….



    Being guided by the Highest Good, going with less is more, being in Perfect Time Quality (Kairos vs Chronos – tied to the ‘quantity’ of Time) and going with Natural Law would be high vibrations of JUPITER in CAP.



    Rather than buying into fear / control based ultra conservatism which can certainly show up under JUPITER in CAP using that energy to uphold valuable traditions and honour what’s ancient, timeless, and has passed the tests of time.

    Supporting quality over quantity, and esp. freeing (JUPITER) up Time (CAP).

 

  • I might have mentioned it before in this epic post about JUPITER in CAP (ha-ha, obviously I wasn’t born with it, would have kept it more succinct & concise in that case):

    Support for Building for the Highest Good comes from:

    * Rather than being SO serious, seeing where too much CAP (fear, control, conditioning) can be opened up – and even laughed at. Humour comes with experience / age.
    * Being calm and on good terms with time.
    * Been there, done that! is the remedy for FOMO and greed for more.
    * Rather than purchasing more / the newest… realizing: “I already got (a version of) this that’s just fine, thank you, no thank you.” No need to waste money on another one and put the now considered ‘old’ one to waste. Understanding the system and freeing ourselves from its piles of stuff.
    * No need for perfection / even completion (aka self-control). Doing what we can, and letting ‘them’ / the Universe take it from there.
    * Rather than re-inventing the wheel, using what’s there, being resourceful, re-using, re-purposing.
    * Doing what WE’re best at, have FUN with, and are naturally resourceful at.

Okie, I better stop that list here, otherwise it gets SOOOOOO long, ha-ha!

If you were born with JUPITER in CAP (I put the years for JUPITER in CAP below) you prob. recognize the themes in your own life…

 

Vibrant & Happy Country Goat 

 

Main Transits of / to / during JUPITER in CAP (Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 19, 2020)

 

DEC 2, 2019
JUPITER enters CAP.
Building for the Highest Good.

 

DEC 8, 2019
JUPITER in CAP squares stationary / retro CHIRON in ARIES. 
CHIRON goes direct on Dec 12. Due to the turnaround, Dec will be also a CHIRON themed month.

And simply get started (with what matters & means most to you).

 

DEC 15, 2019
JUPITER in CAP in Earth Trine with URANUS retro in TAU.
Be resourceful, practically-experimental and innovative.
How can you free up time, be more fulfilled?
And how can we break from habits and attachments (in the name of ‘traditions’) and keep it simple and true to what matters?

 

DEC 25, 2019 – Christmas Day
CAP Christmas New Moon / Partial Solar (Release) Eclipse with the South Node, and JUPITER
The end of piling up more… no more buying into the conditioned Big Operation. Guilt-free opting out.
Space for what’s beyond that.

 

JAN 6, 2020 – Epiphany
JUPITER in CAP meets the Lunar South Node.
Yeah, too much already of the Old Empire ‘out there’ and in us – an epiphany perhaps.

 

JAN 12, 2020
SATURN meets & passes PLUTO end of CAP – a 37-38-year cycle.
The Old Empire Expires.

May & September are (due to the turnarounds) JUPITER month.

 

DEC 16, 2020
JUPITER leaves CAP, and moves over the ‘Community Building Point’ / ‘Prometheus Point’ into AQ.
Better Together.

JUPITER’s Transit in CAP in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in CAPRICORN and the area/s of life relating to the CAP House/s in your birth (and local!) chart/s to come out in their Best, enhance your Life, and Build for the Highest Good – with less effort.

 

…after a perhaps frustrating yet effective ‘clearing’ and phase of closures with SATURN in CAP over the last 2 years, and an even deeper purge via PLUTO in CAP since 2008.

We really have changed & matured so much in our CAP Houses since 2008 & 2018.  

 

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

Mature, calm, reliable, resourceful & resilient. No energy waste.
More of those qualities please. Show up as the model of where the change lays.

 

2nd House:
Your Values. What you own, literally & metaphorically, incl. your Business

What gives you true rock-solid security?
Time to appreciate what you already have, and solidly standing in your values. Know your value/s and live by them – without judging others for not living up to them.

 

3rd House:
Your Environment & Relatives

SO conservative and judgmental… or: traditional and always there for one another, old fashioned / timeless reliability.
What has grown better with time between you and them deserves gratitude and is inspiring to others too. Live and let live. And take time to talk to people around you. It can make a difference in someone’s life you have no clue about. And inspire them to live it forward.

 

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?
Why are you called back to your roots? A dharma purpose awaiting you there? Appreciating the strength and resilience of the ancestors – they came through SO much! – , feeling their timeless support, while not doing things the hard way (anymore) – out of unconscious loyalty to their hardship… 
Receive their Soul support to BE the evolution!

 

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

Play may indeed have priority this year (no need for permission, right?).
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’. And: Give your children space to grow as they mature, and appreciate every ‘season’ with them.  

 

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

Taking on something serious & responsible (typically)?
Honour and appreciate yourself and the service you offer in a calm, knowing, experienced way.
Work upgrade coming? What would give you more time and freedom, and help them even more?
How about introducing a simple yet effective lifestyle routine that requires commitment and some time (well worth ‘spent’)? Your health and overall wellness will be a happy and freeing reward. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and appreciate the journey as much as the ‘progress’. 

 

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

Mature and reliable ones may apply.
Enough frustrations, hardship, rejections, NO’s on their or your side. SO done with old patterns.
How has SATURN in CAP been your (at times perhaps tough) relationship coach, and PLUTO in CAP shown you that Power is always stronger than force? Love doesn’t equate / require hard work / no more need to prove anything or put up with abuse. Time to outgrow the old, and receive the gifts of mature and respectful togetherness that simply – works.  

 

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

Serious processes you’ve been through, over the last years or even decade! 
Honour yourself for the change, and the place it has brought you to. Open up to even more change for the better, and opportunities to share resources with others as you cooperate on something powerful that can have lasting impact.

 

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

You don’t take those lightly.
Serious lessons that turned into wisdom have shown up in the last 2 years.

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!

Cuspy VIRGO – PISCES SuperMOON (Feb 19): Wholeness in Oneness

17 Feb

Dear Astro~News Reader,

Full Moon over the Mountains during the Sochi Winter Olympics on Feb 13, 2014. Credit: Odd Andersen /AFP/Getty Images)

 

Feeling the energy building?
She’s coming!
Special in so many ways:

 

  • The Biggest SuperMOON of the year is ‘on the horizon’ – literally:
    Hope we can see her in her glory in the morning hours before MOONset on Tue Feb 19, here from the West Coast perspective.
    The BIG Full Moon will be exact at 7:54 am PST (after Moonset / Sunrise).

 

  • It’s also quite unique astronomically since the MOON will appear throughout the night very close to Regulus, the Royal Star, and brightest one in the constellation LEO.

 

  • Astrologically, LUNA will be just over the ‘Sphinx Point’ cusp, on the 1st degree of VIRGO while the SUN will be on the first degree / day of PISCES:
    A Lunar Call to be in Self Awareness (LEO / VIR) –
    Who am I, what works for me, and how can I be of service to the whole, let AQ / PI Solar Consciousness shed on Community / Humanity, and bridge ‘both sides’ Me and Us All.

 

  • CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior.

    The SuperSuper FULL MOON on Feb 19 ‘delivers’ and catalyzes CHIRON into ARIES, on the eve of the FM, Feb 18:

    …which brings themes for the next 8 years, such as:
    * Healing through showing up for ourselves, with bold, courageous action, or ‘simply’: Through emerging from the collective cocoon, and being fully present as ourselves.
    * Emergence of new Movements, societally and spiritually, for Waking up & Showing up!
    * Emergency to step into action, re: Climate and other urgent issues.
    A very cuspy & mutable Full Moon (see FM chart below): 

    So much in flux, and lots of shifts happening (incl. CHIRON entering ARIES, and URANUS going into TAURUS) – we better adapt and renew too.

 

  • The last Full Moon in WINTER 2018 / 19 (after the Winter Solstice FM on Dec 22, and the Total Lunar Eclipse FM on Jan 20 / 21) – the next Full Moon on March 20 will be just 4 hrs after the Spring Equinox!

 

  • The last Full Moon in the retro-free zone – no Planets retrograde between Jan 6 when URANUS went direct, and March 5 when MERCURY goes retro.

 

As with every Full Moon, and esp. with this SuperSuperMOON, it can be a very emotional phase, as things come to Fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO), to be released (a la PISCES via the SUN plus MERCURY – soon retro – now close to NEPTUNE!).
Let’s allow it to BE (PI), and keep doing the practice (VIR) that keeps us healthy, whole, and connected, from which right action ‘in the world’ emerges naturally.

 

Neptune Rules Pisces
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

There’s a lot of planetary energy in PISCES in the Astro Weather – showing up for the Full Moon on Feb 19, and being led over into ARIES via CHIRON: Spring and New Life in Becoming!

 

The Full Moon in VIRGO on Feb 19 (see chart below) receives the reflection of the SUN freshly in PISCES, (the SUN will enter PI on Feb 18 at 3:04 pm PST), and MERCURY next to NEPTUNE in mid-PI, plus liberating LILITH in AQ surround the SUN.
What a cosmic tidal wave this can be, esp. mentally!
One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.
Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling lost….?

MERCURY in ‘exile’ in PI (ruling its opposite, organized VIR) can easily get overwhelmed and confused, since… all is connected.
And maybe ‘gone fishing’, meditating, or taking extra naps is the best way of allowing things to run their course and fall into place…

 

  • What’s the Medicine that PISCES offers, at this ‘grand finale’ and transition of CHIRON from PI to ARIES?
  • What’s the Practice that the VIRGO FULL MOON prescribes?

 

If you’re been feeling so much, and being sensitive to the collective energy, you’re not alone.
‘Their stuff?’ / Not yours?

Yes and no:
On a personal level, we don’t need to take in everyone’s woes, or critique their behaviour that we can’t change, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system. Good to take care of our own body-mind-spirit Temple, says VIRGO.


Yet energetically we’re all / all IS interwoven, connected, and ONE, in the flow of Life, shows PISCES – w
e’re spiritual Beings having a human experience. Something to take in and attune even more to, with MERCURY already and for a long time in in PI, plus soon to go retro (March 5 – 28).

 

You prob. heard the quote before: “Don’t sweat the small stuff – it’s all small stuff” (Very apropos VIRGO).
I disagree with the latter part. But it’s worth checking in whether a situation that upset us is actually ‘small stuff’ in the bigger context of things, and yet, why we feel it in such a BIG way? What’s the need behind it?

A spiritual teacher said:
“Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes) with compassion, or do you (as in: you personally) suffer the experience?”
And: “The Person has / is the Problem. Presence just IS.”

VIRGO represents the individualized Self, in that sense ‘the Person’ while PISCES represents Presence with / in / as Energy.
The VIRGO SuperSuper Moon calls us to be aware of what makes us feel / take things so personally even though it might be ‘just random’ / accidental / part of the human condition.
Not to over-analyze and re-affirm ‘the problem’, rather to simply be with it and watch it run its course…

 

Waves are coming in… – Photo by Melanie, Jan 2019

 

On the PISCES ‘side’ (which is an oxymoron, since PI is all-encompassing), some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / oceanic atmosphere around us.

Maybe we came with this gift (which can sometimes feel like a curse – a la CHIRON in PI over the last 8-9 years), or it was evoked early in life.

 

  • Can you, the empathic Person, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as your own?
  • And what of that IS actually a reflection of you?
    The Sphinx Point Self Awareness and VIRGO discernment sure help.
  • Can you let go, release the need to do something with what happened, and allow things to be as they are?
  • Can you let people be who they are, rather than trying to do something about it? 
  • Have you noticed how your (PISCEAN) vibration actually changes them / the situation in a better way than your (VIR) need to ‘fix’ or ‘reform’ them?
  • How do you bring yourself, and what brings you back into alignment (VIR) with your true Soul Nature?


Things flow so much easier (PI), and the Universe ‘has our back’ when we’re true to ourselves.
Magic and synchronicities are our companions, life is more fun and joy, and we’re naturally led to do what we’re best at, and meet people on the way whom we resonate and co-create with.

Versus trying to be everything to everybody, bending over backwards, protecting your image and social status, and building up a fake persona, not wanting to loose face in the eyes of others, and being more perfect than you are, etc.
All of that takes so much energy, comes from the ego, and actually goes against what nature intended for us:
To be authentically ourselves.
HA – seems like CHIRON going into ARIES on the eve of the FM agrees wholeheartedly.

In this sense, more BEING in natural alignment, and less ego directed DOING (as a compensation mode) is what the Astro Doc prescribes, always, and esp. brought out by this VIRGO – PISCES Super FULL MOON.
Noticing and being aware (a VIRGO specialty) of what’s going on are the first steps to nature-ally re-align.

 

How does the VIRGO ‘Priestess’ and ‘Earth Angel’ in us show up in this?

 

Virgo and Mercury Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

Let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old emotions, thoughts and vibrations.

Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, our connection with / in it and conditioning by it,  showing up via MERCURY (soon retro), in triple contact with NEPTUNE (Feb 18, March 24, Apr 2).
Hints: The Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour – Martyr dynamic…

HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT?
I hear VIRGO getting concerned…

Impossible to resolve it all with a ‘strategy’, ‘method’, or ‘fix’, or by analysis…

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming.
But we can learn and practice surfing and navigating them skillfully
 (that’s where VIRGO comes in) and, rather than judging and resisting, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

 

What are these themes are for You that are getting washed up – to be released?
They can be also seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is (houses, planets…).

Triple Goddess

Image:

We can expose ourselves to the cosmic, universal,  unified and unifying PISCEAN Field, transmitted by the SUN, MERCURY & NEPTUNE.
And channel the energy into this human dimension, by tuning into the
 grounding gifts of Grandmother MOON in VIRGO, sign of the Sacred Feminine and Triple Goddess.

How can Your cosmic gifts be actualized, put into service, and help You be in alignment with Your cosmic assignment?

 

 

The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 7:54 am PST on Feb 19 – first full day in PISCES 2019.

Immediately obvious:

We’re in a VERY PISCEAN realm, from our West Coast perspective – balanced by the VIRGO MOON.

 

PISCES Rising, with its Ruler NEPTUNE on the AC, together with MERCURY (which conversely is the Ruler of VIRGO).
The ‘Messenger’ is for a very long time in the PISCEAN oceanic realm this year: Since Feb 10, until Apr 16, and shall go retro there too (March 5 – 28)!
MERCURY in PI is attuning us to openness, connectedness, and fluidity of the Mind.

The SUN freshly in PI (from Feb 18 on), will have just risen at the exact Full Moon time, and therefore be also in the Piscean 12th House – nice natural alignment! –, not far from liberating LILITH in AQ. Being in the vaster Energy Field and tuning into Oneness of / as All-That-Is…
The SUN on the AQ – PI ‘Coherence Point’ invites us as ‘We’re all in This Together’ to tune into shared vibrations with other Human Beings (rather than separation).
Spiritual gatherings where joined group vibrations are being offered would be very welcomed (always, and esp. for this Full Moon).

 

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom:
Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY ‘field’ in PI show us:

All is unified and ONE.

Letting go of mental hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or of being caught in the collective web would be so healing.
Perhaps through sound, music, dance, and vibrational medicine.

MERCURY in PI responds to those ‘messages’, rather than being more inundated, confused, and hypnotized by ‘news’.
Not a suggestion to put the head into the sand.
Rather an opport-Unity to let go, and tune into deeper messages.

 

Big Wave Surfer Maya Gabeira

 

As we immerse fully into the PISCEAN field there is just energy, a ‘quantum soup’.
Which can be overwhelming and chaotic, for the individualized, ‘separate’ human personal self. Examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx / inundation of media (also ruled by PISCES), paradoxically creating FOMO (fear of missing out) – when we experience ourselves as separate from ‘them’.
I guess you’re getting the picture…. 

Interconnectedness of ALL can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the state of bliss and union’, etc.
The invitation is to experience and merge in the field of Oneness.

The SUN now entering PISCES (Feb 18 – March 20) also brings Solar Consciousness to the bigger, longer, and more transpersonal influences of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2026, and CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2019 – which leaves PI literally on the same day as the SUN enters PI, Feb 18 – – the eve of the Super Full Moon.

So much is coming together now…

Allow it, and allow yourself to BE.
Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something, some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. (chances are in the area of life related to PI in your chart).

CHIRON now leaving PISCES has shown over the last decade how old, early, time-transcending wounds came up in this process (esp. for those of us born in the 1960’s under CHIRON in PI, and anyone with PI placements).
As James Hillman summed it up in a Jungian seminar in Victoria a few years ago:
There are two basic early childhood wounds: Abandonment and overwhelm (invasion, abuse). We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination. We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination.
They often lead to addiction – as an escape, and / or substitute for genuine connection…
Real connection is Healing.

 

A Review of the effects of CHIRON in PISCES over the last decade would be quite helpful and integrative.
In our CHIRON into ARIES Parlour – 3 groups on Feb 20 & 28 we shall also in the circle review CHIRON in PISCES, and the Medicine it has brought to everyone.

Crystal activated Voyager card XVII – Star, showing Kuan Yin, Goddess of Compassion – Photo and crystal activation by Melanie

I call the AQ – PI cusp also ‘Kuan Yin Point’ – This female Buddha offers Compassion for Humanity and All Life Forms.

 

Often we have to feel what’s now ripe to be healed. There may be catalysts that bring out the old wounds – to be also healing agents.

Rather than spiritually bypassing the wounds, or indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour, how can we do our part in letting go and healing (NEPTUNE, CHIRON, and MOON in VIR)?

 

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES, together with the North Node now (until June 2020) in CANCER invites us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us and all sentient Beings. Like Kuan Yin, Mother Mary…

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions… See how your energy shifts…!

Maybe it helps us with dropping resistance and separation, and, rather than trying to armour ourselves against the ‘tsunami of energy’ (since as sensitive souls we tend to take things in, and they sit and stick there, and possibly contaminate our inner environment) we can ask and allow the energy to gently leave us.

NEPTUNE in PI’s need for Connection and Oneness with the Great Mother, the Universe, the All, can lead to ‘looking for Love at the wrong places’, going on a compensation course via addictions of all sorts that promise to let the ‘me’ go away for a while, but hey, it does come back each time, which can turn into a painful vicious cycle.

These ‘depleting’ tendencies can be met by our awareness of wholeness (Full Moon in VIR) from which healing and renewed Consciousness that-IS (PI SUN) can come.
Practices that lead us to a physical, sensate awareness of wholeness, like mindfulness meditation, Yoga, walks in Nature help, ideally integrated into our life as a healthy routine (VIR).

What are other concrete practices, maybe healthy rituals you can DO (VIRGO) that help us come back into Oneness with / in Life?

 

VIRGO is the energy of the Harvest Goddess,  Priestess, and Sacred Feminine who is whole and complete, clear and aligned with her sacred Self which keeps her / us in Integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness, and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit Temple through clearing, discernment, sacred and spiritual practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which means in our practical daily life:
A body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle.
A healthy body in a healthy spirit.
Honouring ourselves and our body-temple.
Practice Is Perfect.

  • Is there a practice you can adopt right now that would benefit your well being? Something simple and self-sufficient, like – cell phone free walks, Yoga, exercise, getting more regularly fresh air? 
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner Mentor prescribe? Like: adding / removing something from your diet, sleep, work style and hours, certain practices that make you overall happier and healthier, a morning ritual? 
  • Is there something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of? 
  • Would a ceremony help release something old and outlived, and / or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

 

 

Other Cosmic Energies in the SuperMOON ‘Field’

 

Call of the Mountain
Photo by Melanie, Dec 2018

 

Mountain Medicine

Yes, still a lot of CAPRICORN energy too, activated by VENUS:

VENUS now in CAP (Feb 3 – March 1), on the ‘Integrity Point’ – a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’ and in integrity / really works for us, while ‘in the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror for where we’re at, with our self value and self love.

VENUS will have just met SATURN (once a year) on Feb 18:
What are you ready to commit to, from your Heart, and because it’s Time?
And what’s done & complete (even though you used to love it)?

On Feb 22 – 24, VENUS will meet PLUTO and the South Node in CAP:
Deep and karmic Soul Connections and Attractions are showing up, with the South Node, rather ‘of the past’, ancient and timeless, yet also to release (South Node) old patterns that don’t serve anymore (end of CAP has also VIR undertone, just as early VIR has CAP undertone, a mutually activated theme).
Be in Your Integrity NOW. Mountain Medicine.

 

 

 

Tune into Your Heart Gifts!

JUPITER has come a long way in its own domain of SAGITTARIUS (since Nov 8, 2018, until Dec 2, 2019).
It’s starting to slow down now, to go retro for 4 months, from Apr 10 on.

MERCURY while for a long time in PI (incl. its retro phase in March) will go 3 times (before, during, and after retro) into square with JUPITER in SAG: Feb 22, March 15, and Apr 11.
Which is also a reflection of the triple square between JUPITER and NEPTUNE in PI this year (1st one was JAN 13).

Let’s tune into Messages beyond our rational thinking, and receive the gifts of their Wisdom, showing us about the interwoven Fabric of Life.
Let’s allow things to be fluid and easy, offer and receive messages-as-gifts, tap into abundance mode, rather than feeling overwhelmed. Letting the Heart direction & connections unfold…

 

Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Awakeness

Lastly, another cuspy activation, on the ‘Settling / Embodiment Point’ from ARIES to TAURUS…

…via URANUS, at the very end of ARIES – to move into TAURUS with the next New Moon, on March 6, and MARS which recently ‘settled’ in TAU (Feb 14 – March 30).

MARS in TAURUS followed by URANUS helps us with grounding and embodying Spirit-in-Matter, while Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Awakeness.

More about URANUS into TAURUS coming up soon, in ASTRO~NEWS!

LIBRA – ARIES Easter Full Moon with ERIS / URANUS, and MARS / SATURN: Liberation and Peace in a Polarized World

30 Mar

Dear Astro~News Readers!

Let’s welcome the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon!

Not only as the March Blue Moon (second one, after March 1), and First Full Moon in Spring, heralding Easter the day after (yes, Easter is a lunar calendar festival, celebrated on the Sunday after the first Spring Full Moon)!
But also, since it brings lots of liberating shifts!

 

Young Hare, by Albrecht Duerer (original at Albertina, Vienna)

 

Surprise – surprise!
An unexpected Archetype’s ‘on board’ of the ARIES activation this month:

Not only URANUS but also ERIS (presently at 23°16’ AR) will be catalyzed by the LI – AR Full Moon (March 31) and by the New Moon in ARIES (Apr 15)!

Eris_Antikensammlung_Berlin

Eris – Antikensammlung Berlin

A befriended Astro client asked me a few days ago what my take on Eris, Sedna, and other seldomly looked-at and newly discovered Astro Archetypes is.
Which made me realize: 

It’s ERIS season again (yep, not just ARIES season). And, even more so: ERIS has been actually (perhaps overlooked but very effectively) operating for a while in ‘tandem’ with URANUS in ARIES.
Both just come out of that crazy 2 – 3 year alliance mirrored in world events.

Who / what / which Archetype is ERIS, and how does it show up now personally and societally?

ERIS, the most massive and second-largest dwarf planet known in the Solar System, was only discovered in 2005 (one of the reasons why PLUTO was demoted of its Planet status in 2006!), has an eccentric 561(!) year orbit around the SUN (more than twice as long as PLUTO), and has been almost the whole 20th and beginning of the 21st century in ARIES!

Even if you have ‘nothing in ARIES’ you do: ERIS (that’s another – personal – story, showing how you respond to / with that Archetype!)

The unevolved role of the ERIS Archetype – the Greek goddess of discord and strife is seeding separation – which we’ve seen a lot lately in humanity.
“She stirs up jealousy and envy to cause fighting and anger among men. At the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, all the gods were invited with the exception of Eris, and, enraged at her exclusion, she spitefully caused a quarrel among the goddesses that led to the Trojan War.”

Here’s where ERIS can evolve, according to Doug Walker in this excellent ERIS intro article:
“If the ERIS Archetype is developed fully, humanity may never have to experience war again. The feminine ERIS will balance the aggression of MARS. A well developed ERIS Archetype could banish all war. The ancient prophesy of swords turned into plowshares could be realized.”

May CHIRON entering ARIES (which is immanent, starting Apr 17 – until Sept 25 2018, and then fully ON from Feb 18, 2019 on until 2026 / 27 when it will meet ERIS) help with healing what makes war possible.

But realistically speaking (says SATURN in CAP now too…), we gotta start from and acknowledge where we’re at.
Has it ever been a period of discord, disruption, and seeding of separation in society over the last 2 years, esp. via the media!
The recently revealed social media scandals of sensitive private data being harvested and exploited to split the population by manipulatively feeding them back ‘news’ and intensifying what they believe in or side with in a way that could have tipped the scales for the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, and the Brexit referendum.
A prime example of large scale collective seeding of discord and separation.
Plus the huge trend of ‘disruptive technology’ which can be abused in so many ways…

As well as the crazy making U. S – North Korea conflict, scandalous school shootings in the U.S. and the heated gun control debate, and the Catalan call for independence (URANUS and ERIS have been on Barcelona’s ARIES SUN and not far from Spain’s MOON in the last years (Check out my astrological Catalunya Independence blog post) are all prime examples of ERIS at work – together with URANUS.

 

Uranian Liberation & Promethean Mercury Lead ON.

Prometheus – the Archetype of Uranus – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

The Archetype of URANUS the Awakener (shocking and rude awakenings, in this case) reflects not only (or at least not always immediately) liberation but also disruption, distortion, trauma, and in combination with ERIS (which happens once in a century only) has been highly explosive and discordant. Esp. since both are also in assertive ARIES.

May the shocking revelations (JUPITER in SCO certainly helps with that) that are coming through now lead to freedom of humanity on a higher and more conscious level!

Good to know: URANUS has now passed ERIS (their ‘hottest’ years were 2016 / 2017).
So, my sense is the shocking discordance producing scenarios might integrate, as (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity continues. People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle, based on being set up against each other anymore.

ERIS in ARIES is a strong Full Moon (March 31) and New Moon (Apr 15) catalyst.
See the Full Moon chart below.
Bringing the ERIS / URANUS low grade manifestation to the bright light of SOLAR Consciousness (the SUN is very strong in ARIES) IS a game (or rather: out-of-game) changer. Waking Up from being set up to fight / war  against ‘the other’ brings  for true URANIAN Liberation.

 

MERCURY in ARIES at the retro mid-point, connecting with the SUN on Apr 1 = Day of Enlightened Insight (for more about the whole M-r phase check out the blog post).

This certainly helps also with breakthroughs, aha effects, paradigm shifts, and mental liberation from the agitating ‘war on mind’ / mind at war with itself, and for a fresh approach.
With the MERCURY – SUN Enlightening Insight contact, a ‘New MERCURY’ (like a New Moon) is born, and the SUN (Consciousness, Spirit) is leading now, while the MERCURY (Mind) follows. This is the ‘Promethean’ phase of M-r. Prometheus is the URANUS Archetype. A liberating force. Forward-thinking, out-of the-
mind-matrix, etc.

“What and how do you Choose now newly?” asks the LIBRA FULL MOON, opposite the ARIES frenzy, and: “What brings Balance and PEACE in a Polarized World”?

 

MARS in CAP Passes Stationary (retro on Apr 17) SATURN:
Overcoming old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal control.
Moving forward, in Integrity and Inner Authority.

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

The LI – AR Full Moon links up in a sharp ‘T-Square’ with stationary SATURN (about to go retro, on Apr 17) and MARS. Now that’s quite the charge!

MARS and SATURN are the ‘outlet’ of that intense dynamic. Both strong in CAP. At best a momentum in Integrity and intrinsic Authority.

With the last New Moon, March 17, MARS, Ruler of ARIES, entered CAP – its ‘best’ position in the Zodiac (lots of energy to ‘move mountains’, and a push to persevere – in integrity), and will be in the Mountain Goat sign for a long time (basically until mid-Sept)
For more details, check out my MARS-in-CAP blog post.

Now MARS will pass SATURN (exact on Apr 2) – that’s big news, and the last massive shift catalyzed by the Full Moon!
Moving past serious authority challenges and obstacles, control, fears and resistances.
May Integrity lead the way!
And as SATURN will go retro on Apr 17 (for the first time since it entered CAP last Dec), we once again learn the lesson that true authority lays within.

Next up for MARS: A contact with LILITH, on Apr 19:
Our True Nature can’t be corrupted or controlled. Let’s move on and up from that place.

 

Here’s the chart of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon with URANUS and ERIS in AR, in T-Square to MARS – SATURN:

MARS into CAPRICORN (March 17 – May 15, plus Aug 12 – Sept 10): Gett’n Stuff Done. Integrity in Action & (RE)Builder Energy

17 Mar

We’ve come a long way, with MARS moving (us) through SAG, since Jan 26! Hope you had a motivating time, and Spirit called you to follow your Heart! And that your SAG themes got activated the right way.

Today, March 17, just 6 1/2 hrs after the New Moon, the energetic Warrior Archetype and ruling Planet of ARIES (which is so fresh and ‘hot’ these days) moved over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP where we’re called to DO what we said, follow up on those high-flying visions and promises, do the work, and build what matters and lasts.

Vibrant Country Goat

A solid energy that holds everyone accountable, AND helps us to get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
And CAP doesn’t like waste of time and energy.

Time to get going with those long awaited Spring projects, and hey, we got the energy and motivation now (no more excuse, ha-ha).

MARS is considered ‘exalted’ in CAP (top position for MARS in the Zodiac) – think mountaineer or marathon runner, and builder… sustainable energy to reach a goal.
Let’s USE (yay, a buzz word for CAP) the time and energy as it’s available.
Plain and simple, actually.
CAP likes simplicity, and sticking to priorities.

What does that mean for the CAP sides in us (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, Nodes)?

Well, they get an energy boost, to be even more Capricornian, in terms of accomplishing and completing (yay! finishing!) what they’re set out to do. DO it, says MARS, you got the energy now… yet slowly, consistently, not over night or ‘in the moment’ (as ARIES would have it – do I hear MERCURY going retro in AR next week?!). 
Where CAP is in your chart (either via Planets, SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or in any case the House/s CAP lives in) gets an energy boost.

Let’s check that out and direct it in a good way, in a private session if you like. 
You can use (did I say USE?) the Flash Focus Sessions for that (see below).

Getting things done – woohoo! MARS in CAP rocks!

 

What’s the Itinerary for MARS in CAPRICORN 2018?
March 17 – May 15 + Aug 15 – Sept 10

And hey – why does MARS ‘come back’ to CAP for 4 weeks in Aug / Sept?
Bingo! MARS will go retro this year (every 2 years) from early AQ, touching back into CAP from which it will go direct on Aug 27).

Re: the dates given below: The energy is active / available in the whole week around the dates when it climaxes. The build-up time is usually stronger than the outflow phase.

MARCH 17: 

MARS entered CAP – Lead ON!
Moving forward with vigor and integrity.

APR 2:
MARS passes stationary (going retro Apr 17) SATURN in CAP.
Overcoming old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal control, and moving UP, one step at a time.

APR 4 / 5:
MERCURY retro in AR squares MARS / SATURN stat. in CAP.
Don’t get discouraged by the ego mind and its quick reactions. Hopefully a breakthrough already occurred, and Consciousness leads. Excellent energy for planning and following through – from 
the Heart.

APR 10:
VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with MARS in CAP.
Rock Solid Love. And a great time for gardening too 🙂

APR 14:
MARS in CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in PI.
Great time for work flow. And to connect with the compassionate WHY you’re moving mountains and taking on projects.

APR 19:
MARS passes LILITH in CAP.
Be wild, earthy, and sexy. Let your inner wildness lead the way.
Uhh, and the SUN enters sensual earthy TAU that day too….
And hey, this can also mobilize women in / towards / against status-quo leadership.

APR 23:
MARS in CAP in sextile with JUPITER retro in SCO.
Looots of energy – not just for Spring cleaning and purging. Also for revealing for what’s been 
covered(-up).

APR 26:
MARS in CAP passes stationary / retro PLUTO (will go retro Apr 22).
Whoooaa – Power House energy.
Transforming anger into productive work?
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Moving Mountains? Doing the Soul Work.
Transforming societal structures.

MAY 12:
MERCURY in AR (direct again) squares MARS in CAP.
Big Projects can be done, with the right mind set. Rather than being antagonistic, reactionary and in resistance work FOR something.

MAY 15:
MARS enters AQ where it goes retro from JUNE 26 on.
Coming to the end of what YOU can do?
It takes a village / team / humanity to collaborate.

JUNE 26:
MARS goes retro at 9°13′ AQ (until Aug 27 – back into CAP on Aug 15)

Back-tracking what works with collaboration, and where (old) competition and conflict arise.
Re-configuring the Inner / Outer / Societal Masculine.
What’s the Role of the Masculine in the Future of Humanity?

More about MARS retro:
Astro~News Blog post to come, closer to the time.

AUG 15 – SEPT 10:
MARS  back in CAP, going retro-to-direct for 4 weeks.
RE-trieving what we’re best at, and can contribute, from our level of experience, maturity, and responsibility.
What motivates YOU to accomplish something that really matters?
What sustains your energy (that you might have forgotten about)?

AUG 27:
MARS goes direct at 28°37′ CAP.
Lots of motivation, drive, and energy – esp. for your late CAP themes.

SEPT 10:
MARS finally passes over the ‘Community Building Point’ into AQ.
Collaboration is Key.

 

May we all USE and work with the time and energy of MARS in CAP for the highest purpose! 

 

Getting into the groove of what MARS now in CAP activates for you can be supported in an Astro session – and the Flash Focus Sessions offer (44 min for only $ 44 – March 22 – Apr 4) can be certainly purposed for this.

 


44 min Flash Focus sessions are coming up – for only $ 44!
(Not only) to kick off M-r in ARIES (March 22 – Apr 4)

VIRGO – Super-PISCES Full Moon @ 11:22: Self-Aligning in the Flow of Life

28 Feb

Dear Astro~News Reader,

She’s coming!

  • The last Full Moon in WINTER 2017 / 18 (after the New Year’s SuperMoon on Jan 1, and the Total Lunar Eclipse / Blue Moon / SuperMoon on Jan 31)!
  • Wow, so rare, to have TWO Full Moons in January (1 & 31), NO Full Moon in February, and again TWO Full Moons in March (1 & 31)!
  • The last Full Moon in the Zodiac cycle this year, with the SUN in PISCES – and the MOON in VIRGO.
  • The last Full Moon in the retro-free zone (no planets retrograde, between Jan 2 when URANUS went direct, and March 8 when JUPITER goes retro).

As with every Full Moon, it can be a very emotional phase, and things come to fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO) to be released (PISCES SUN plus 4 planetary Archetypes in PI!).

 

Neptune Rules Pisces.
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

If you’re been feeling so much, and being sensitive to the collective energy, you’re not alone.
‘Their stuff?’ / Not yours?
Yes and no, since on a personal level you don’t need to take in everyone’s woes, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system.
Yet energetically we’re all / all IS interwoven, connected, and ONE, in the flow of life.

We’re spiritual beings having a human experience.
Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes) with compassion, or do you (as in: you personally) suffer the experience?

Some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / atmosphere around us, maybe we came with this gift (that can sometimes feel like a curse), maybe it has been a survival training in early childhood – we learned to adapt or escape.

How do you, the empathetic person X, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as my own?
And what of that IS actually a reflection of you (VIRGO discernment comes handy)?
How do I let go and allow things to be washed away?
How do you bring yourself, and what brings you back into alignment (VIR) with your true soul nature?
Why would you want this?

Because things flow so much easier (PI) and the Universe has our back when we’re true to ourselves. Magic and synchronicities are our companions and life is joy.
Versus trying to be everything to everybody, bending over backwards, protecting your image and social status, and building up a fake persona, not wanting to loose face in the eyes of others, etc. – all of that takes so much energy, comes from the ego, and actually goes against what nature intended for us: To be authentically ourselves.

In this sense, more BEING in natural alignment, and less ego directed DOING (as a compensation mode) is what the astro doc prescribes, always, and esp. brought out by this VIRGO – SuperPISCES FULL MOON.

Not always easy… diagnosing what’s going on, and being aware (a VIRGO specialty) is the first step to re-aligning.

There’s a lot of planetary energy in PISCES in the Astro Weather – showing up for the Full Moon on March 1, and gradually moving over to ARIES (starting with MERCURY and VENUS on March 5 / 6 – Spring in Becoming!

The Full Moon in VIRGO on March 1 (see chart below) receives the reflection of the SUN in PISCES, next to NEPTUNE (the SUN will pass NEPTUNE on Sunday March 4) in mid-PI (= SCO undertone), MERCURY, VENUS, and CHIRON in late PISCES (= double PI).
What a cosmic tidal wave! One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.

Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling lost….?

  • What’s the medicine that PISCES offers, led by CHIRON?
  • What’s the practice that the VIRGO FULL MOON prescribes?

 

How does the VIRGO ‘Priestess’ and ‘Earth Angel’ in us (whether we live in a as a male or female body) show up in this?

Virgo and Mercury, painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

First of all: Let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old vibrations. Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our connection with it / conditioning by it?
And allow things to be purged and transformed (SCO undertone, and Water trine from JUPITER in SCO – which happens to be also stationary (going retro on March 8).

Around March 8 (one week before and after) is actually a very powerful, and transformational time (of course also good for clearing in a practical way).

 

HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT?
I hear VIRGO getting concerned…
Impossible to resolve it all with a ‘strategy’, ‘method’, or ‘fix’, or by analysis…

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming but we can learn and practice surfing and navigating them skillfully (that’s where VIRGO comes in) and, even more so, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

What gets washed up and released, and what these themes are about for YOU can be seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is (houses, planets…).
CHIRON in PI says: the ‘Medicine’ is IN the theme itself.

The PISCES SUN and planets are squared by MARS (see chart below) which is presently (until mid March 17) cruising in late SAG, the direction of the Galactic Center – the Big Unknown and Unknowable, the ‘Black Hole Transformation’ we are going through, with ultimate trust. That’s where the inner Spiritual Guidance comes in. Let yourself be moved by it. An inner sense of YES!

Moving from the Spiritual Heart that knows and guides us. We will be changed in the process, and can’t know what it ‘looks like on the other side’ (the Ego doesn’t like that).
The path through, or actually with it is the Path of Heart.

 

galacticcenter

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

This reminds me of A Path With Heart – one of Jack Kornfield’s books of Buddhist teachings for the modern world.
Here is an audio excerpt about self forgiveness.  So healing.
Also very much apropos VIR – PI.
We all hurt or harmed, abandoned, betrayed  others or ourselves, knowingly and unknowingly, out of fear, pain, or confusion.
And we all were hurt and harmed by others.
Asking for and offering forgiveness inwardly. Letting go of what we still carry in the body.
The Heart wants to be free and light and clear and open.
The blessings of a loving-kindness attuned Heart follow.

I invite you to tune in and see how it supports your Beingness.

 

Triple_Goddess

Triple Moon Goddess (waxing, full, waning): Maiden, Mother, Crone. (Artist unknown)

Were the SUN is presently in the sky during any time of day or night we can picture all those other planets, while the Full MOON will be opposite, holding balance.
We can expose ourselves to the cosmic unified and unifying PISCEAN medicine field, transmitted by the SUN, NEPTUNE, and CHIRON,
and channel the energy into this dimension, by tuning into the grounding gifts of Grandmother MOON in VIRGO, sign of the Sacred Feminine and Triple Goddess.

How can your cosmic gifts be actualized, put into service, and help you be in alignment with your cosmic assignment?

MARS in late SAG would add: What’s the Heart mission you’re on? Offering from a generous, expectations- and agenda-free place brings gifts back to ourselves too.


The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 4:41 pm PST on March 1, 2018.

 

Look at this magical FULL MOON degree alignment at 11°22′ VIR (MOON) and PI (SUN)! Duality in ONEness. 

  • Soo much in PISCES, in ‘polarity’ with the balancing MOON in VIRGO (which will rise just about an hour after the exact Full Moon, from West Coast perspective).
  • SO much mutability (VIR – SAG – PI)! And very strong in the YIN EARTH / WATER Elements. We live in a Climate of Change!
  • Zero AIR – hmmm, not so easy to maintain a detached, objective perspective? Or: not about the rational mind, rather intuition and heart connection, translated into service and manifestation in integrity (VIR & CAP). 

YinYang Infinite

Essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamically changing and interwoven.


The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY / VENUS / CHIRON  in PI  show us:

All is unified and ONE.
What makes us vulnerable also carries the Heart Medicine.

Letting go of mental hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or being caught in the collective web would be so healing.

Perhaps through sound, music, dance, and vibrational medicine.
MERCURY in PI responds to those ‘messages’, rather than more inundating, confusing, and hypnotizing ‘news’. Not a suggestion to put the head into the sand. Rather an opport-Unity to tune into deeper messages.

 

The Full MOON in VIR is in Earth trine with SATURN / LILITH in CAP, and PLUTO nearby – which balances and grounds the energy:

Saturn Pop

Saturn Infrared (Hubble Space Telescope). 

 

  • Awareness and practice matter.
  • Living simply and sustainably (CAP) in wholeness and wellness (VIR).
  • Being in nature, and in our Inner ‘Wild’ Nature (LILITH) helps and sustains – and doesn’t take things on or put up with things (SATURN).

 

Would you like to look closer at these present FULL MOON Energies? Dive in with me!

As we immerse fully into the PISCEAN field there is just energy, a ‘quantum soup’.
Which can be overwhelming and chaotic, for the individualized, ‘separate’ human personal self. The invitation is to experience and merge in the field of Oneness.

Interconnectedness of ALL can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the state of bliss and union’, etc.

I guess you get the picture, and examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx of media (also ruled by PISCES).

The SUN now in PI brings yearly consciousness to the bigger, longer lasting, and more transpersonal influence of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2023, and CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2018 (moving over to ARIES Apr 17 – Sept 25, 2018, and then fully from Feb 19, 2019 on). 

  • Have you been feeling overwhelmed by all kinds of influences and energies that are ‘streaming in and through’?
  • Maybe you have a very vivid dream life, maybe you don’t want to face it all?
  • How about this: The way ‘out’ is the way ‘IN’ – to surrender and trust in being carried by What-IS?

So much is coming together now…

Allow it, and allow yourself to BE.
Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something or some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. (chances are in the area of life related to PI in your chart).

CHIRON shows us that old, early, time-transcending wounds can come up in this process (esp. for those of us born in the 1960’s under CHIRON in PI, and anyone with PI placements).

As James Hillman summed it up in a Jungian seminar in Victoria a few years ago:
There are two basic early childhood wounds: Abandonment and overwhelm (invasion, abuse). We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination.

DSC00136

Crystal activated Voyager card XVII – Star, showing Kuan Yin… – Goddess of Compassion – Photo and crystal activation by Melanie

Often we have to feel what’s now ripe to be healed. There may be catalysts that bring out the old wounds – to be also healing agents.

Rather than spiritually bypassing the wounds, or indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour (all these are shadow tendencies of PI), how can we do our part in letting go and healing (NEPTUNE, CHIRON, and MOON in VIR)?

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES (with NEPTUNE and CHIRON) invites us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us. Like Kuan Yin, Mother Mary…

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions… See how your energy shifts…!

Maybe it helps us with dropping resistance and separation, and, rather than putting up boundaries against the ‘tsunami of energy’ (since as sensitive souls we tend to take things in, and they sit and stick there, and possibly contaminate our inner environment) we can gently allow the energy to leave us.

Are there other concrete practices, maybe healthy rituals you can DO (VIRGO) that help us come back into Oneness with / in Life?

NEPTUNE in PI’s need for Connection and Oneness with the Great Mother, the Universe, the All, can lead to ‘looking for Love at the wrong places’, going on a compensation course via addictions of all sorts that promise to let the ‘me’ go away for a while, but hey, it does come back each time, which can turn into a painful vicious cycle.

These ‘depleting’ tendencies can be met by our awareness of wholeness (Full Moon in VIR) from which healing (CHIRON in PI) and renewed Consciousness that-IS (PI SUN) can come.
Practices that lead us to a physical, sensate awareness of wholeness, like mindfulness meditation, Yoga, walks in Nature help, ideally integrated into our life as a healthy routine.

 

Chiron

Wounded Healer / Centaur CHIRON Finding his Medicine through Surrender…

The ‘Medicine Wo/Man CHIRON’ shows that the ‘wound’ carries the medicine.

CHIRON in PI can be about paradoxical and confusing ‘wounds’:

Feeling awkward and like an outsider because of our urge for deeper connectedness, yet at the same time being overwhelmed and exhausted by too many influences, and not able to release energies we have taken in. Hence escapism, distraction, avoidance.

Nowa-years with CHIRON in PI, when we dive in, and experience our oneness with Life we can relax, and let go of the idea of separation, or even adversarial ‘you over there’, and we’re re-connected with Life again.

Oneness with what-IS allows us also to let things ‘go through us’ as energy, rather than having them stick to us, or sit in our field.
Just as we’ve taken it IN (PI is ‘infamous’ for taking a lot IN) we’re invited to breathe or otherwise release it OUT.
Maybe no need to ‘do anything with it’ (i.e. analyze and work on it…).

Music, Dance, Yoga, Qi Gong, being with or IN Water is natural release therapy.

NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES on the ‘opposite side’ of VIRGO (yet representing the ONE), show it’s all related:
When we drop into Resonance and Love we open up and see: What seems to be on the outside / ‘over there’ in ‘them’ has to do with us too. And – maybe in a place of vulnerability – , we ask for help, drop resistance, let go, and let God.

Many people have become more and more sensitive – perhaps a symptom of overwhelm with influences streaming at us through the media, through the collective atmosphere and cyber sphere. I’ve been hearing that from many clients, and experience it myself.

Therefore, let’s

  • Be in body-mind-spirit alignment, good health, well-being and conscious practice.
  • Be mindful, aware and self-aware.
  • Take care of business, organize, clear and clean.
  • Help ourselves (VIR is a big fan of DiY, and there is so much info online now too, re: How to…).
  • Help others – because we can. ‘Simple’, ‘small’, anonymous acts of service – can be a big deal for them, and so internally rewarding.

VIRGO thrives on alignment and self-containment, discernment, loves wellness practices, recipes, remedies, and rituals. And it’s important to heal low vibrational VIRGO (“never good enough, always problems”) with higher VIRGO vibes.

  • What is your Body Temple showing you?
  • What can you do (with joy and awareness) to help and serve others, and make the world a better place? Maybe in the service lays your own healing?
  • What needs physical cleaning / clearing / organizing in your life (how about starting with a small realm, like: the desk?). The present VIR – PI dynamic, in combination with JUPITER in SCO helps with purging, clearing clutter and reorganizing things so that life energy can flow more smoothly (and you know where things are…).
  • What’s the change you’re grateful for (JUPITER in SCO)? Even (and maybe esp.) those ‘small’ things (VIR).

 

Voyager II Priestess Crystals 1

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Photo by Melanie

 

VIRGO is the energy of the Harvest Goddess,  Priestess, and Sacred Feminine who is clear and aligned with her sacred Self which she keeps in integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit Temple through clearing, discernment, sacred and spiritual practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which means in our practical daily life:
A body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle.
A healthy body in a healthy spirit.
Honouring ourselves and our body-temple.

  • Is there a practice you can adopt right now that would benefit your well being? Something simple and self-sufficient, like – cell phone free walks, Yoga, exercise, getting more regularly fresh air? 
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner Mentor prescribe? Like: adding / removing something from your diet, sleep, work style and hours, certain practices that make you overall happier and healthier, a morning ritual? 
  • Is there something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of? 
  • Would a ceremony help release something old and outlived, and / or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

What a creative combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

  • Ride the waves, be in your element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy.
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • Clean up with music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of service bring fulfillment.

 

Voyager VIII Balance

Voyager Tarot Card VIII Balance

(Why am I so drawn to bring in Voyager Tarot cards today? Maybe to show you their natural alignment with Astrology)

BALANCE is the way to go, or rather to BE, in the Full Moon dynamic.

The ‘whirlwind’ of stimuli and issues can kick us off balance. How can we infuse a situation where ‘problems’ show up / where we’re not aligned (VIR) with flow, allowance, acceptance, and love, which might mean release and let go(d) (PI)?

Intentionality is important too, and MARS in late SAG in T-square to the Full Moon axis, supports clear Heart Intentions.

 

Clearly, the answer is in the Heart.
May the Heart lead the way, in the Journey!
