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

9 Jan

Dear Star Being,

Feeling HER in you?

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

What does this Eclipse FULL MOON evoke?

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

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

 

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

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


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

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

 

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

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

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

 

The January Full Moon is traditionally the WOLF MOON.

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

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

 

 

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

Take a look at the

Birthing chart of the Eclipse Full Moon

 


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

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

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

 

 

What are the NODES in CAP – CANCER about?

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

 

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


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


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


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


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

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

 

Bottom line, release, release, release of…

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

 

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

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

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

BALANCE of what?

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

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

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

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

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

‘Just’ resisting and blaming external authority and power structures (SATURN / PLUTO) is not the way forward. It still feeds their energy field by giving them attention, acknowledges them energetically, and basically responds / reacts in an adolescent manner (SATURN retro).
How about claiming self-authority (SATURN retro), and ‘outgrowing’ old modes, by co-building new and better, more compassionate and humane structures that take care of needs more directly and on an equal level, rather than the old fossilized top-down institutionalized world?!

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

SATURN and Earth – Hubble Space Telescope picture (NASA)

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

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

PLUTO (New Horizons Mission 2015)

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

The SATURN / PLUTO conjunction at 23º CAP on Jan 12, 2020 is ending a 38-year SATURN / PLUTO cycle since 1982, re: societal structures disintegrating, making room for a New Era.

In the early 80’s the alignment was end of LIBRA, and the shift affected the breakdown of old paradigms in relationships – esp. the default model of marriage as a life-long commitment which ain’t no more the norm (SATURN).

Now we’re facing the disintegration / collapse of an old outer (yet also internalized) world.

What happened via PLUTO in LIBRA on the ‘horizontal’ level is now due on the ‘vertical’ level of relationships.
The top-down Empire expires, with its established structures, systems and hierarchical societal paradigms (SATURN in CAP), its fear & control, shame & guilt based conditioning, its shadows of systemic domination and oppression of Nature and ‘Inferiors’.
All kind of real deal shadow (SATURN / PLUTO) is coming out now for transformation.
We don’t have to participate in that ‘contract’ anymore, and can from the inside-out change low vibrations of fear & manipulation and upgrade them into respect, groundedness, and intrinsic power, in alignment with Higher Self, Soul Power, and the Power of the Cosmos.
We’re on the threshold of a New Era.

 

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

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

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

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


CAPRICORN rules Time and History.

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


The SATURN / PLUTO alignment in the sign of CAP hasn’t happened in half a millennium!
The last time exactly in 1517 / 18  – the start of the Protestant Reformation, initiated by Martin Luther which led to a historic break with the established Church. Luther had become convinced that the institutional Church was corrupt in its ways and had lost sight of what he saw as several of the central truths of Christianity.
Unsurprisingly, Luther was born with multiple SCO placements (MARS, SATURN, VENUS, SUN), prone to uncover what was going on behind the scenes and incongruent with the essence of the teachings the Church was built on. His bold ARIES MOON opposed PLUTO in LIBRA. He had to initiate a break from what wasn’t in right relationship with essence / God, as both were T-squared by the 1516 – 17 SATURN / PLUTO conj. in CAP.

 

Late CAP where the Jan 12 alignment happens (and JUPITER / SATURN / PLUTO will be aligned throughout 2020, plus PLUTO will still be until 2023) has a VIRGO undertone.
The primarily patriarchal-hierarchical ‘leadership’ model that has over centuries disrespected Natural Laws and the Sacred Feminine, and shown ample evidence (SATURN) for its destructive effects (example: more and more production incl. for wars and for waste) is SO overdue to expire.

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

Old heavy / karmic / limiting timelines (SATURN in CAP) come up to be transformed and cleared now (PLUTO).
A cosmic-collective RE-birthing process is on:

SATURN represents archetypally also the matrix, and labour / contraction initiating the process of separation at birth.
PLUTO represents the birth canal – forces of nature take over. Resistance to change is futile. A death leading to rebirth.


The Lunar North Node now in CANCER – opposite the CAP cluster, and activated with the CAN – CAP Full Moon / PLE on Jan 10, 2020, calls upon the Great Mother Goddess in / with us to nurture ourselves and other Beings with love, compassion, and gentleness through these hard times (CAP), and to treat everything and everyone with love and reverence.
Of course, the devastating bush fires in Australia come immediately to mind & heart in this.


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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why? Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.
The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.
I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!    

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

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

23 Dec

Solstice Blessings, dear Cosmic Friends on this Sacred Earth!

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

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

 

And now – right on Christmas Day / Boxing Day:

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

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

 

 

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

Obviously a Big and important one.

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

Four CAP / CAN Eclipses in 2019:

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Lunar South Node Glyph

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

Lunar North Node Glyph

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

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

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

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

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

 

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


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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

Limiting Lie 1:
Scarcity of resources.

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

 

Limiting Lie 2:
Separation.

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

 

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

 

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

 

What helps – what doesn’t?

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

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

 

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

 

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

So simple.

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Wall St. Bronze Bull

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

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

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

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

 

Well, and what’s with the Christmas Spirit?

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

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

 

A Release Ceremony

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

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

 

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

SO – let’s take a good look at the

Birth Chart of the Ring of Fire Annular Solar Eclipse

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

 

 

And SO much CAP indeed!

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

Lastly, let’s see what the 

Sabian Symbol of the Eclipse New Moon

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

 

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

 

4º CAP:

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!  

 

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

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

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.

Jupiter and Earth – a matter of Perspective. Photo: Hubble Space Telescope (NASA)

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.
Start simple.
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.

 

FEB 20, 2020
JUPITER in CAP in sextile with NEPTUNE in PISCES.
Doing what we can / are best at, and surrendering the rest.
Ethics & Blessings meet.

 

MARCH 20, 2020 – Day after Spring Equinox
MARS in CAP (exalted there) meets JUPITER.
MARS / JUPITER / PLUTO / SATURN will be close together end of CAP round Spring Equinox!

Pursuing and persevering with gusto what transforms the unsustainable, comes from Soul Power, and makes a real & lasting difference.

 

APR 4, 2020
JUPITER meets PLUTO (I), again on JUNE 29 (II) and on NOV 12 (III)
Big Time Power-to-Change.
Knowing why Building from Integrity & 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.

 

MAY 14 – SEPT 12, 2020
JUPITER goes retro at 27º 14′ CAP (the U.S. PLUTO degree), back to 17º 24′ CAP.
Back to history and personal history – understanding the present challenges in the Light of ‘then’, learning from it, outgrowing it, implementing the change. Evolution happens.
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.

 

DEC 19, 2020
SATURN (after 3 years in CAP, and a transition year 2020) follows JUPITER into AQ.
Community & Humanity Matter.

 

DEC 21, 2020 – Winter Solstice
JUPITER meets SATURN on the AQ cusp – a 20-year cycle since May 2000 ends, and a new one begins.
Co-creating new systems in / for Humanity.

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. Which people, paths, places, and purpose are you reaching out to and are you met by now, with all your experience under your belt? A timely and well matured year to put yourself and your life experience out into the World.

 

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 (“Not ready / done yet”). Inspire the Public. Yes, because you lead by example and have accomplished something admirable. But also just because. Be out there where there’s quality. 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, and co-invest their time and energy into what matters most, at the end of the day.
Enjoy precious time together, and how you’ve seen each other mature over time. Inspired to build something together that society can benefit from?

 

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 ‘lately’?
The Universe has your back, and you can rely on it – as you tie up your Camel. Take in the Cosmic Gifts and generously share them out – easy!    

 

 

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

Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!

 

Or take me up on my upcoming Treat Time Offer (Dec 1 – 31):
Treat Yourself to an Astro session @ 22% off.

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!

SAG – GEMINI Full Moon with JUPITER (June 17) – Speak Your Heart Truth & Be Free

16 Jun

Happy Strawberry & Rose Moon of June!

So many beautiful flowers in full bloom now, incl. Wild Roses and cultivated Roses. Time to smell the Roses, and pick up their Heart Medicine.

 

Rosarium Roses – visit in my Bavarian birth town Regensburg – Photo by Melanie, June 2019

 

You might already know…
Native Americans and other traditions around the World gave names to the Full Moons of the year. Each Nation / culture has given the Full Moons of the month different names, according to what that month brings and requires.

So many names, so much diversity… directed by Nature.

 

Yes, this is the last Full Moon in Spring, after the Spring Equinox Full Moon on March 20, the Easter Full Moon on Apr 19, and the Wesak Moon on May 18 – four(!) Spring Full Moons this year!


The previous Full Moons in LIBRA – AR, LIBRA – AR, and SCO – TAU ‘funnel’ into this one, as the LUNA, before her Fullness in SAG, travelled last week through LIBRA and SCO… evoking themes of relatedness, balance, and deeper processes, hopefully bringing us to core themes that are ripe for change-into-freedom!

 

What does this FULL MOON mean to YOU?
And even more so, how does it MOVE YOU?

 

My friend Otto Heitzer took this amazing photo of the strawberry colour Full Moon in Germany – not today but some Moons ago 🙂


I invite you to follow the trail into the Heart of Astro~News, to find its gifts and Medicine through the read, and even more so: in your HEART! 

 

Phoenix Heart-Fire Moon Moves Us!

Before tuning into the SAG FULL MOON, enhanced by BIG JUPITER(!) we went through the SCORPIO MOON on Thu / Fri (June 13 / 14) – the most intense of all lunar vibrations – which of course has ‘fed’ into tomorrow’s Full Moon.

Time to speak (GEM SUN) our Truth (SAG) about what touches us deeply, and about intense shadow things (SCO) as well. May the Truth set us FREE!
Knowledge (GEM), Understanding (SAG / JUPITER), and mostly:
Heart Truth & deep Wisdom IS Freedom!

 

 

We rise again – even more so when we’ve processed and cleared a lot in / through the scorpionic phase.
The pre-Full Moon is always most charged – enhanced by JUPITER (their alignment will be today Sunday at 12:09 pm PDT), and still reverberating the SCO – TAU Full Moon from May 18 – the Wesak Moon.

How about tuning into the whole phase from the Full Moon in SCO (May 18) to the pre-Full Moon in SCO (June 13 / 14):

  • Where have you been emotionally ‘hooked’ yet couldn’t control the situation?
  • Where have you felt deeply affected (hurt over or passionate about something)?
  • How can / could you transform attachments (to a desired outcome / gain, or being stuck with the unwanted), and find freedom?
  • What’s a ‘game changer’ that brings the intense and ‘negative’ to the light, and restores Love?
  • What does the inner Buddha Nature say to all this, and where does it take you?

Have you noticed?
Since the MOON crossed over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG
(Sat June 15 at 2:03 am PDT) the Spirit / mood lifted – and we could ‘come through what needed to be felt, ‘digested’, transformed, and alchemized, with new understanding and direction, rooted in the Heart.

 

This free and public Eagle showed up for Public Domain Photos – in public air space…

 

The lunar SAG energy pulls us upward-onward – yay!
SAG after SCO is the ‘Phoenix out of the Ashes’, the soaring Eagle, the rebirth and widening of perspective:
To SEE is to be FREE!

Freedom and Truth are big for SAG – the energy that’s enhanced by JUPITER the Ruler of SAG for the whole year, until Dec 2 – a super boost for the one SAG Full MOON of the Year!

When we come from the ego-head the Full Moon polarity of SUN & MOON turns easily into a divisive scenario.
Either horizontally: “Me here – you there; my truth vs. your truth”, or vertically: “I’m up here and know better than you.”

What saves the day and the way is the HEART.
HEART Truth isn’t somebody’s truth, and not about right or wrong, doesn’t have an opposite, is inviting rather than dividing.
Coming and speaking from the Heart Truth is a big theme under the GEM – SAG Full Moon.

Is that up for you too?
Likely it’s related to the areas in life that the SAG – GEMINI Houses in your chart point to. Perhaps even your SUN, MOON, Nodes, and Planets are in GEM and / or SAG?

When the “me and them” or sense of “I know better” comes up, and creates an interpretation of perceptions that can turn into a ‘story’ we can inquire (GEM), a la Byron Katie, and deeply ask ourselves:

  • Is this true?
  • How do you know it’s true?
  • Who would you be without this truth / story?

Inquiring as in: questioning our assumptions, and also: asking deep existential questions about our True Nature is a great way of being with the SAG – GEM activation through the Full Moon.

 

Time to take a look at the SAG – GEMINI Full Moon chart!

The cosmic Full Moon map shows TWO dominant polarities with multiple heavenly bodies involved:

  • The GEMINI SUN – SAG MOON / JUPITER Full Moon axis
  • The CANCER MARS / MERCURY / North Node – CAPRICORN SATURN / PLUTO / South Node opposition.

All about the Full MOON and also the Lunar Nodes.

  • SAG – GEM represents the Journey from the Head to the Heart, and to be guided by our Heart YES (rather than all the outer & inner voices, doubts, and arguments).
  • With SATURN / South Node / PLUTO in CAP an ‘Old Empire’ is indeed expiring.
    Which old ways in YOUR life (related to power / control / authority / judgment / heaviness / depression / repression) are coming to an end?
    No need to go back to them.
    Honour them for what they have served, and let them run their course without you.
  • MARS / MERCURY (exactly aligned on June 18) / North Node in CANCER have us passionately advocate FOR something we feel strongly about, bravely tracing the origin of your feelings & thoughts, anger & passion, and pro-actively take care of our needs. When we do that disempowering patterns can be completed (CAP energy with the South Node).

 

So much mutability in the chart / energy field these days (‘Flexibel’ scores 23) – suggesting maximum flexibility and adaptability without getting scattered, fragmented, and overwhelmed.
Key of the mutability is yesterday’s (June 16) square of JUPITER retro in SAG with NEPTUNE in PI: Tuning into the Heart Path, and allowing the Universe and all Beings to bless us and fulfill our Heart & Soul Wishes.
Even if we don’t think we like strawberries & roses…

 
URANUS is the only Planet in a fixed sign, TAURUS – which is hardly fixed, since it breaks up habits and attachments – Freedom from the Known!
This ‘Singleton’ Planet URANUS can be quite an important catalyst: Being radically awake and present in our Earth Body and its senses here-now is an important clue to freedom.
What does your body spontaneously call you to shift? 
I just changed the place and body position from which I’m writing (now legs up, fresh air), and voila, feeling more awake and inspired.

Feeling ready to compose the Astro~News for the whole phase from the Full Moon in SAG – GEM to the CANCER New Moon on July 2 – a Total Solar Eclipse.
It’ll come your way via email if you’re subscribed (which you can do on my FB Page – left side panel).

 

Many Blessings for the JUPITER enhanced Strawberry & Roses Full Moon and beyond!

ARIES NEW MOON (Apr 5) – It All Starts with YOU!

4 Apr

Happy Spring-ing, dear ASTRO~NEWS Fan!

The ARIES NEW MOON (manana Apr 5) IS in the starters, and YES:
Birth the New YOU! It All starts with YOU!

 

View from the Sacred Space where EmBody Astrology happens – next one on April 20. 

 

What are you starting – what’s beginning in your life now – sprouting from the inside-out?
Be inspired and in-spirit-ed by Nature and Your authentic Nature…, says also CHIRON freshly in ARIES.

Springy energy is quickening and arising, from the ground-UP and from the branches down, while cosmic energies support fresh starts, new approaches, and taking initiative, via

  •  The NEW MOON in ARIES tomorrow Apr 5!

  • A retro-FREE window, technically since MERCURY went out of retro on March 28 (but post-r slow moving ‘storm’ only settling on the weekend), and until JUPITER goes retro on Apr 10 (yes, next week).
    So yeah, basically the NEW MOON weekend opens a window of fresh beginnings – for you personally in the area of life related to mid-ARIES in your chart.
    Check it out, or ask me.

  • MARS the ruler of ARIES now having moved out of slow and grounded TAURUS into swift GEMINI (March 30 – May 15) helps speed up things too – starts with thoughts and dialogue.

 

The ARIES NEW MOON

…is exact tomorrow Apr 5 at 1:50 am PDT. Here’s ‘her Birth Chart’:

 

Mid-ARIES which the NEW MOON activates has a LEO undertone:
Live Life from the Inside-Out. 
Love Yourself.
Live Life Lovingly.
You ARE Life!

 

Check this out:
The mid-ARIES (15°17′) NEW MOON is the midpoint (almost exactly between) CHIRON freshly in ARIES, and URANUS freshly in TAURUS!
So, the NEW MOON is pulling together the themes of

  • The Medicine of being Authentically YOU (CHIRON now in ARIES) – read more about it here, and
  • Waking UP, and Embodying Freedom (URANUS now in TAURUS) – see full article here.

Being Heart-fully Loving, and Self-Loving First actually takes care of being Authentic, Awake, and Free!
Simple – even though not always easy…

Why not?
Mostly because of old / societal conditioning and internalized expectations…
…showing up now big time, powerfully and insidiously manifesting from within and all around (SATURN / PLUTO in CAP) while also being ‘on their way OUT’ (South Node in CAP).
The time around the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon on Jan 5 – Let the ‘Old Empire’ Expire! has shown us a big deal about it. What’s your ‘Old Empire’?

 

What to lead with instead?
The CANCER North Node keeps reminding us of being gentle, caring, and compassionate, with ourselves as with others and in the World.
The CANCER North Node will be hugely activated by the Total Solar Eclipse in CAN on July 2, 2019 – Finding our Way Home!

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot Card 0 – Fool & Child

The ARIES NEW MOON tomorrow is the central NEW MOON between these two cardinal / crucial / karmic / Ecliptic NEW MOONs of the Year!

It forms a not-exact (yet in effect) cardinal T-Square to the Nodal Axis –
A karmic pressure to birth the new YOU!

So there’s another almost-hidden yet feel-able hinge effect of the ARIES NEW MOON – calling us so strongly to start with Ourselves, and take Baby Steps forward.

Be the ‘Hero of the Day’ (as my grandma used to say – and call me from time to time, endearingly-teasingly)!

Actually YES, if we could be more as little children again – with the wisdom (the ‘wise fool’) and experience gained in life, we could see the World with fresh eyes every day, and be in the NOW.

Which in turn helps an authentic CAP expression: 
Bringing out OUR Best!

 

 

Also in the NEW MOON ‘womb’:
JUPITER in U-Turn in the Galactic Centre –
Being Guided by Deep inner Wisdom.

JUPITER has reached the furthest point in the Zodiac (24°21′ SAG) this Spring from which the Giant goes retro on April 10 (until Aug 11).
Guess where the late SAG (25 – 28°) ‘pointer’ directs us to from Earth perspective? To the Galactic Centre – cosmic womb of our Milky Way Galaxy – and a super Black Hole.
The Big Unknown.
The Ultimate Questions –
Why are we here? Where are we going? What’s Creation all about?
The Big Existential Awe.

Drawing guidance from this ultimate place…

…which brings us also quite radically into the NOW.

 

The NEW MOON in your… House energizes and activates these areas of your Life:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House:
You in Your Local Environment

4th House:
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

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

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

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

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

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House:
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House:
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

 

Wishing you a fresh Start from the Heart with the ARIES NEW MOON, and Ever New NOW!

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!

LIBRA – ARIES Spring Equinox Super Full Moon (March 20) – Show up in Balance!

18 Mar

Happy Equinox, dear  Astro Friends!

…exact at 2:58 pm PDT on Wed March 20!
To tune in, come over to the equinoctial blog article.

Dancing LEO MOON on Fire / on the Wire – Photo by moi, March 18, 2019

WOW!
Just 4 hrs after exact Spring Equinox (exact at 2:58 pm PDT on March 20) comes the exact first Full Moon in SPRING – on the ‘Perfect Balance’ axis from the cardinal starting points of ARIES & LIBRA!

It’s the ‘opposite of the Harvest Moon’ – the closest Full Moon to Fall Equinox that always appears bigger and brighter than a ‘usual’ Full Moon, and provides extra Moonlight for harvesting into the evening hours.

As you already might wonder, looking at the waxing Moon at daytime – yes, it IS also brighter than a ‘regular’ Full Moon.
It’s the 3rd of three SuperMoons (Jan 20 / TLE, Feb 19, and March 20) early this year.

 

Naturally, the theme of Balance is heightened, via the polarity axis of SUN & MOON, with the Earth in the middle, and via the MOON’s entry into LIBRA.
On the Lunar ‘Perfect Balance’  Point from VIR to LI it’s about a VIRGO practice / technique that helps us come back into Balance.

  • What helps you to come into and BE in Balance?
    Balance of peaceful rest and activity, of stimulation and reflection, of giving and receiving, of focus and r & r time, of time at the desk and time in Nature, of creativity and inspiration, of seriousness and fun, of home time and public out-there time, of learning and sharing, balance in your diet, and in the body balance of the right and left side…
  • If there’s an imbalance how does that show up in your life, and what does that show you?

I learned esp. through Yoga & Meditation practice that Balance isn’t so much a way of equating this and that, the polar opposites, but finding the Still Point in the ’emptiness’.

With the FULL MOON on the ‘Perfect Balance’ cusp from VIR to LIBRA – how’s it going with our practice and lifestyle (VIR) that support and sustain Balance?
And how can we show up (ARIES) from a well (yet of course never perfectly) balanced place?

 

Here’s a raw & spontaneous video I created in the park yesterday, apropos the Full Moon – showing up again myself, after a wintry video ‘hibernation’. Enjoy!

 

Let’s take a look at the LIBRA – ARIES Equinox Super FULL MOON chart:

The FULL MOON will be exact at 6:43 pm PDT on March 20  – less than 4 hrs after the exact Spring Equinox at 2:58 pm PDT.

 

What a super-charged and multi-connected cosmic pattern, with several inter-linked aspect configurations / closed figures that describe inter-connected themes that are on now.

If you wanna know / get a sense: A Blue Kite, 2 Yods, a Cradle, an Ambivalence Triangle, and a Mutable Grand Cross. Can you geeks see them?
I won’t go into all those ‘gestalts’ (not even under the analytical VIRGO MOON, lol) – that would be quite an oeuvre – so let’s keep it simpler…

Btw, if you’d like to learn about Planetary Patterns, Aspects, and Aspect Configurations get in touch with me. I intend to offer a new Level 3 Intermediate Astro course with that focus in the Fall, and am happy to put you on my list of friendly interested folk. Ask me any preliminary questions – they’re always welcome. I’m here to support you.

 

Back to the EQUINOX FULL MOON:

For starters / most important things first:
Look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°09′ ARIES – on the the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely behind CHIRON at 1°44′ AR!

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully in your world too) melted, the rivers are running again, fresh Life emerges from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!
Likewise, let’s rise again, into the freshness, newness, and NOWness of Life!

‘Simply’ showing up as your authentic Self can be very raw and vulnerable, yet is healing and renewing, says also CHIRON now freshly in ARIES activated by the FULL MOON ‘equation’ as it’ll be met by the SUN on March 22 – which brings consciousness to areas of life (whether personally – in ourselves, in relationships, in society…) that call us to take action / be pro-active, make a move and take the first step.
And ultimately, to be in our Presence in the NOW.

 

‘Back’ in PISCES is MERCURY retro (until March 28), about to unite with NEPTUNE for the second time (on March 24) helps us with awareness about, and letting go of old toxic energy & mind forms that used to draw us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out.
Now we can see those patterns more clearly (M-r is doing its job to re-mind us of what’s usually under the radar!) – the first step to becoming FREE.

FREE to BE!

…and URANUS now freshly in TAURUS (since the day of the last New Moon on March 6!) cooperates, by kicking us out of old habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!

 

And, as you can see in the chart:
SATURN comes very close to PLUTO now (they won’t meet until Jan 12, 2020 but travel side by side this Spring, together with the South Node, all of them between 19° and 24° CAP).
Let the Old Empire Expire continues to be the motto – brought up with the Partial Solar Eclipse with SATURN, on Jan 5 / 6. In some sense a mantra for the year.

You’re probably well aware by now what these Old Empire themes are in your life, personally, relationally, and societally…

The CAP shadows of control and abuse are a good place to check in on:
How are we treated by others / allowing them to treat us, and do we treat other people, Nature, and ourselves…?

 

MARS now in TAURUS (until March 30)- the Cosmic Gardener – brings an Earth Trine support to the CAP Concentration of Old (SATURN / SN / PLUTO).
The MARS – PLUTO alignment is exact on March 20 too, and active all week. 

Let’s engage in slowly, steadily planting new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’, and in cultivating the transformation…
Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’ (a la SATURN in CAP), and is ever transforming (PLUTO).

How can that come in, in your Life?

 

Also in the ‘cosmic web’, and strongly activated by the Super FULL MOON:

The North Node of the MOON is in late CANCER, and accentuated by a Blue Kite, and also by a Yod pointing to this ‘sensitive point’ – clearly a ‘celestial pointer’ – to what?

A NN incentive for care, compassion, gentleness, a sense of belonging, and (end of CANCER has a PISCES undertone) emotional connection in the ‘Human / Soul Family’.
Even ‘just’ re-connecting with others who are close to your Heart is sooo good, and has ripple effects.

Follow the prompting when someone comes to mind and heart!
And notice how what you put out comes back – from different yet connected sources in the ‘web of life’.

 

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

Another Yod points ‘down’ to JUPITER in late (double) SAG – very close to the direction of the Galactic Centre – The ultimate unknowing where ‘the journey goes’, yet we can be connected to the ‘knowing source’.
Such a potent time to connect with deep Heart Wisdom & Inner Guidance.

So rare to have two Yods activated at the same time – they are called ‘Finger of God’ / ‘Celestial Pointer.
And they describe a Journey where it’s not about the destination / outcome but the process – like a pilgrimage.

 

Wall St. Bull Sculpture

OH – and what’s with VENUS in AQ – meeting LILITH on March 22 (once a year), and squaring MARS in TAU (exact on March 21)?!
That tension’s been building up too, and comes to a release with the FULL MOON.
A VENUS – MARS charge that’s mirrored in the FULL MOON in (VENUS ruled) MOON in LIBRA – SUN in ARIES (ruled by MARS).
Literally a Feminine – Masculine conflict?
The AQ Free Spirit / Feminist vs. the TAU Bully / Stubborn Guy?
In any case, the Inner Feminine and Inner Masculine are in tension at this time – a good time to explore how that shows up for and IN you!

Yesss, our True Nature is FREE – says LILITH now in AQ.
And when we come together in groups, or with friends – all in the name of Freedom and Equality via our shared Humanity, we can stand up towards territorial claims and conflicts / bullying of some who pretend they ‘own the space’. 

Standing our ground and ‘not going away’ (MARS in TAU) can be much more effective when done in groups (AQ) – beating the age old ‘divide / disperse and rule’ strategy.

On another note / ‘higher octave’ the square between VENUS / LILITH in AQ and MARS in TAU brings up / helps with spaciousness and non-attachment / beyond claim of ‘ownership’ in relationships.
Which can be quite strong now / culminating with the Super Full MOON in LIBRA – ARIES.

 

In Summary – any and all of these themes help with showing up in Balance:

  • Let’s emerge and rise again, into the freshness newness, and NOWness of Life!
  • Let’s make a move and be authentic.
  • Let’s release old energy & mind forms that used to draw us in and kick us out of balance.
  • Let’s kick old stagnant habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!
  • Let’s stop feeding the ‘Old Empire’, and let it expire.
  • Let’s consistently plant new seeds that outgrow the ‘wintry conditions’, and cultivate the transformation…
  • Let’s be caring, compassionate, gentle, tune into a sense of belonging and emotional connection in the ‘Human / Soul Family’.
  • Let’s connect with deep Heart Wisdom & Inner Guidance.
  • Let’s stand our ground – together with others.
  • Let’s cultivate non-attachment in all our relationships.

 

Inner Balance is the best way of, if not prerequisite for effectively showing up / standing up in and for Peace, Justice, Equity, you name it – what calls you to be active at this time.

 

Blessings for the Fullness of the New Season!
Melanie

SPRING EQUINOX 2019 (March 20 at 2:58 pm PDT): Happy Astrological New Year! Happy New ARIES!

18 Mar

The Astrological New Year is coming – as the SUN enters ARIES!

Happy New Year, dear Astrology Friends!

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with SPRING Equinox / Ostara, Beltane, SUMMER Solstice / Litha, Lughnassadh, FALL Equinox / Mabon, Samhain / Halloween, WINTER Solstice / Yule, and Imbolc.

SPRING EQUINOX is the day of equal daylight and night hours.
From Wed March 20 onward, the days are getting longer than the nights, in the Northern hemisphere.
It’ll be the reign of the SUN over the next 6 months, until FALL EQUINOX.


SPRING EQUINOX is one of the 4 sacred Corner Stones of the natural yearly cycle, and one of the 8 Celtic / Pagan Holidays.

This year, there will be also a FULL MOON – and SuperMOON – , on the DAY of  (just 4 hrs after) SPRING EQUINOX – super rare!
The energy is building and we feel it…
More about the ARIES FULL MOON in the Astro~News post dedicated specifically to it.

 

Easter was named after Ostara!
Yes, Easter is one of the few Christian festivals based on the Solunar calendar.

Sooo, a little MERCURY retro curiosity… I was wondering – maybe you too:
Doesn’t Easter fall on the first Sunday after the first Full Moon in Spring? Which would be already March 24.
Well, found out since by ecclesiastical rules, the Equinox according to Christianity is fixed on March 21, and doesn’t consider the actual start of ARIES. That assumption / rule places this year’s Easter Sunday on April 21, 2019 – the Sunday after the next Full Moon on April 19.
Which will be a ‘Blue Moon’ (second of two) in LIBRA – ARIES. Both Full Moons on March 20 and Apr 19 frame the ‘Season of ARIES’.

 

With the emergence of Spring, the Spirit of Newness, and Healing through Authenticity is building, as the SUN enters ARIES – to meet ‘Wounded Healer / Warrior Shaman CHIRON (now freshly in ARIES) – exact on March 22.

 

Here’s a sneak peak at the LI-AR Spring Equinox Full Moon chart:

The FULL MOON will be exact at 6:43 pm PDT on March 20  – less than 4 hrs after the exact Spring Equinox at 2:58 pm PDT.

Just look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°09′ ARIES – on the the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – just barely behind CHIRON at 1°44′ AR!

Out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness New Life arises.
Just as snow and ice have (hopefully) melted, the rivers are running again, and fresh Life emerges from the ground-up, and from the blossoming trees out and down!

Likewise, in these very last PISCEAN days it’s time to let go and let out-flow the old wounds and woes of Winter, and perhaps of the last 7-8 years with CHIRON in PI – and let their teaching become our healing agents.
And to rise again, into the freshness, newness and NOWness of Life!

MERCURY retro (until March 28) in PISCES, about to unite with NEPTUNE for the second time (on March 24) helps us with awareness about and letting go of old energy & mind forms that used to draw us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out.
Now we can see those patterns more clearly (M-r is doing its job to re-mind us of what’s usually under the radar!) – the first step to becoming FREE.

How are we treated by others, and do we treat other people, Nature, and ourselves…?

Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’.
Nature is such a model for being on purpose – nature-ally!

 

MARS in TAURUS – the Cosmic Gardener – brings an Earth Trine support to the CAP Concentration of Old – their alignment is exact on March 20 too, and active all week. 

Amazing how Nature always ‘accomplishes’ what needs to ‘get done’, and ‘just in time’.
Joyful Productivity!

Here are (in Mercury retro mode) a few little Haikus I created spontaneously last year, inspired by the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Victoria Art Gallery:

 

Here comes Aries.

Such de-light-full Rebels.

Happy Spring-ing!
