SUN, MOON, and PLANETS in Motion 2018 – An Astro Overview of the Year

31 Dec

Dear Astro~News Reader,


SATURN now in CAPRICORN likes things concise and organized.
So I’m offering you an Overview of Planetary Movements, New Moons, Full Moons, and Eclipses for the whole year 2018!

Feel free to print it off as a reference, and share it – while honouring my copyright.

And if you’re specifically interested in getting a sense of one or the other Transit come join our Astro workshops and Parlours!  
They are in the meantime all accessible online, via FB Messenger or Skype, from your home / holiday around the globe. Just register with your birth info (so that I can set up and integrate YOUR chart into the discussion), and show up at the PST / PDT time).

 

The big News Makers in 2018 are of course CHIRON and URANUS, both temporarily changing signs!

CHIRON has been in PISCES since 2011, and tries on ARIES from mid-April to end of Sept 2018.
URANUS has been in ARIES also since 2011, and provokes early TAURUS mid April to early Nov 2018. 

Here’s the whole line-up.
Interpretations of the alignments as they approach.



Or come to our 2018 New Years Outlook Parlour, on Jan 4!


Some room in the evening group left. Afternoon group is quite full now.

JUNO – PLUTO Conjunction (Nov 12) and New 10-year Cycle: Empowering Relationship Transformation

12 Nov
Sooo, the Asteroid Goddess JUNO passed the Underworld God PLUTO at 17 / 18 degrees CAP today, Nov 12. A rendez-vous that only happens every decade!

Hera & Zeus, the Greek Equivalent of Juno & Jupiter

JUNO (mythologically the wife of JUPITER) in CAP is all about integrity and respect in relationships / with all our relations.
And PLUTO is the change agent anyway.

Their pairing helps set things straight, esp. in relationships, reminds us what matters most at the end of the day, and how to create empowering change for the better, from the inside out.
 
This starts a new JUNO – PLUTO cycle:
  • What are we deeply committed to?
  • What do we spend your time and energy on?
  • Which commitments and relationships need an empowering transformation?

You’d be mostly affected and you can activate their energy if you have your AC, MC, SUN, MOON, or Planets in mid-CAP, mid-AR, mid-CAN, or mid-LI.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

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.

  • Are you in a challenging transition or transformational crisis?
  • Are you looking for perspective at a crossroad or dilemma, and for empowered choices?

I welcome you to meet and explore with the invaluable and timeless tools of astrology, and to access your own wisdom source in the process.

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you in being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships with others.
Plus, I can help you determine your powerful places on Planet Earth.

JUPITER at 13°13′ LIBRA goes direct on June 9 (13 min after the Full Moon!): Wise Choices, Number 13, and Balance of Inner Masculine and Feminine

8 Jun

The SAG – GEMINI Full Moon (blog post to follow) catalyzes other Planetary activation – foremost:
JUPITER (ruler of the MOON sign – SAG!) going direct only 13 min. after the exact Full Moon!

Jupiter and Earth

Plus: JUPITER is in LIBRA, and a Full Moon with its polarity axis has a LIBRAN tone to it – it’s all about Balance, and Right Relationship.

Quite the JUPITER Month of June: As JUPITER ‘stations’ now, to shift from travelling retro (since early Feb) to direct (forward from Earth perspective) all things JUPITER and LIBRA are quite a highlight, and strongly in our awareness (JUPITER is like a magnifier) this month of June.

Ha, interesting that the month of JUNE was named after JUNO, JUPITER’s wife, and LIBRA is the sign of relationship. The Asteroid JUNO by the way tells us about our inner themes round committed relationships. Definitely worth exploring, as a focus, and since JUPITER in LIBRA is so strong now. Get in touch with me (contact info below) if you’d like to take this opportunity.

And back to LIBRA: The BIG question is: Who and what is a ‘good match’? Where the synergy of the two creates ‘1 + 1 = 3’ , more than the sum of its parts, and definitely not less…
Relationship themes are big this month, and already ‘blown up’ since JUPITER entered LIBRA, 09/09/2016. The ‘Big One’ will be still in LIBRA until 10/10/2017. The dates themselves suggest nice symmetry and harmony. JUPITER also shows us where we are idealistic (SATURN is the reality check).

Questions of Wise Choices, Peace, Balance, Relationship on all levels are important – not necessarily a ‘given’ (just look at the geopolitical scene, and our personal human condition)… but Growth (JUPITER) in those areas is calling, and there’s no lack of opportunities (JUPITER).

What brings us back into BALANCE? Making wise choices?
As the Bridge image suggests, building bridges is a good thing, yet sometimes, if there’s not really a common ground, or not a balance of giving and receiving, outgrowing a relationship is ok too.
Lots of clients with JUPITER transiting their 7th or 9th House literally feel they’ve outgrown a relationship. JUPITER in LIBRA has a similar effect to all of us, in the area where LIBRA is in our chart (10th House: The Public, 11th House: Community, Friends…).

Are you part of a mini-generation, with a slow moving Planet in LIBRA?
NEPTUNE in LIBRA (Oct 1942 – Oct 1956)
URANUS in LIBRA (Oct 1968 – Nov 1974)
PLUTO in LIBRA (Oct 1971 – Aug 1984)

JUPITER makes your LIBRAN themes bigger – perhaps to literally outgrow generational, historic conditioning around them:

For NEPTUNE in LIBRA, the romantic / disappointment / sacrificial quality relationships can take, yet also relationships as a spiritual journey.

For URANUS in LIBRA (the children of the NEPTUNE in LIBRA gen), having experienced disruption and divorce, possibly re-creating those patterns, and / or having a strong notion for independence. Yet also the chance to re-invent relationship that does allow for maximum self realization.

For PLUTO in LIBRA (also children of the NEPTUNE in LIBRA gen), on an inter-personal level the experience of power in / through relationships: The relationship has power, the other has power, I have power when I’m in the right relationship (or NOT in relationship). A deeper question might be: Who and what am I without relationship?
With PLUTO, it’s not about personal power but the power of Life, of Nature that can’t be argued 🙂

If you are in one of these mini generations (born 1942 – 1956, or 1968 – 1984), or have LIBRA otherwise prominent in your chart, I invite you to come and explore the opportunities for growth that JUPITER offers now. 

Relationship is also a reflection, and often a projection of the shadow that we don’t want to see in ourselves… and sometimes it takes the Medicine of SCORPIO (where JUPITER will immerse us in, from 10/10 on) to look under the surface…

If you feel called to check in astrologically what JUPITER in LIBRA shows you personally, and where Growth-through-Balance can unfold now, one option would be short LIBRA focused session (30 – 40 min), or come for a more comprehensive and encompassing 90 min – 2 hr full session. 
Maybe it’s time for an update anyway?

Tomorrow, literally just 13 min after the exact Full Moon, JUPITER goes direct at 13°13′ LIBRA – what’s with all that symmetry…?

Even thought this FRIDAY is not a 13th – the misunderstood Day of the Sacred Feminine (13 Moons & VENUS-day), the message about the Number 13 with JUPITER is quite striking.
Message and Meaning (GEMINI – SAG)…
Maybe the cosmic message points us to the already unfolding renaissance of the Sacred Feminine, and an incentive for Balance and Sacred Marriage (LIBRA) of Masculine and Feminine on Planet Earth.

The next level, after the New Moon in GEM on May 25 that initiated a new dialogue, and new Inner Alchemy!
