ARIES – LIBRA Thanksgiving Full Moon (Oct 13): Be Fully YOU, and Bring Your Authentic Nature & Love-Power into Partnership!

11 Oct

Dear Astro Activated Friend!

Boom!
The ARIES MOON is on now – since 9:46 pm PDT, and you know what that means:
She’s revving UP for her exact Fullness, opposite the LIBRA SUN, on Sun-Day Oct 13 at 2:08 pm PDT.
Just before the Canadian Thanksgiving (Mon Oct 14) – a Thanksgiving Full Moon!

Phewwww – soo much coming to fruition this season, since the LIBRA New Moon (Sept 28) and last Full Moon in PISCES – VIRGO (Sept 13)! Seems like we’re ripe for a whole new way of Being (very apropos ARIES) and Being with One Another (very LIBRA)!
Feeling it?

The warm and golden October SUN and the crispy-fresh MOONlit nights this week have been such a beautiful gift of contrast and balance.

The first Full Moon in Fall is coming up!
Not the Harvest Moon (the Full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox) which was already on Fri Sept 13.

Yet (with every Full Moon and esp. with this one!!!) it’s a good time to check in, what’s coming to Fruition, in this Harvest time!
MERCURY soon retro in SCO and ‘Harvester’ SATURN in CAP who likes inventory would agree.
And hey – SOO much has occurred and ‘fallen into our lap’ since the last Harvest Moon on Sept 13 – do you find that too?
It’s been one of the most intense and occurrences full-filled months of the year.

Clearly a call for clarity!


Lots of cosmic shifts and com-motion mirror and map the themes that have been coming to consciousness through all these cosmic activations –

Here are the EIGHT most important ones:

Hubble: Elegant Saturn Sequence

SATURN in mid-CAP went direct on Sept 18 (until May 10, 2020):
Now, what ARE we Building?

The turnaround of the ‘Ringed Reaper’ made September quite a SATURN month!
Harvest
(an association with karmic SATURN), foremost Spiritual Harvest – also the Sabian Symbol of the PI – VIR Harvest Moon on Sept 13 – , has been a BIG theme this lunar phase from Full Moon to Full Moon. 
SATURN in CAP calls us to use time and all our innate & ‘harvested’ resources (experiences are resources!) for the highest purpose. Would be worth checking where SATURN is punctuating your chart these days, and what the ‘cosmic coach’ SATURN suggests.

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, incl. Mabon – Fall Equinox

Sept 23: Fall Equinox / Mabon – Perfect Balance?
The seasonal & timely prime theme since the SUN moved into LIBRA is
 Balance – Balance – Balance… Let’s hold space, and find inner Balance, these times when it’s more than ever required. Wise choices result.

LIBRA Super New Moon (Sept 28) opp. CHIRON –
Seeds of Peace, Balance, and Healing

Let’s keep watering them with the Cancerian Care of the North Node! ❤ 

 

The LILITH & NEPTUNE Union in PISCES (Oct 1) squared JUPITER in SAG –
Wave of Nature-All Heart Connectedness

Wave of Overwhelm, and / or of Unity in the Web of Life?
And that fits also beautifully with the Sabian Symbol for the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon (below)!

 

PLUTO (New Horizons Mission 2015)

PLUTO in CAP went direct / forward on Oct 3: POWER to Change!

PLUTO-in-CAP is still in stationary U-Turn mode until mid-Oct, and a crucial ‘Player’ in the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon – which will be in T-square with PLUTO!
MERCURY (on Sept 26) and VENUS (on Sept 30) from late LIBRA have squared PLUTO, reminding us that POWER has to do with making wise choices and finding a good match – for various purposes -, resulting in peace, balance, and harmony.
Has that transformation been going on in you already & showing you what it takes to activate Power to Change, and what needed to change in you to get there?
Via the Full Moon, the SUN in LIBRA and MOON in ARIES will now square PLUTO – extra catalysts for Power to Change.
More about those effects and its Medicine below, under the Full Moon chart.

MERCURY moved (also on Oct 3!) for 9 1/2 weeks into SCORPIO (until Dec 9)!
Prepping us for Taboo Talk, Intimate Conversations, and RE-activating our 6th Sense.

The Full Moon is a catalyst for MERCURY going into pre-retro shadow – the retro phase starts on Oct 31!

MERCURY opposed URANUS (once a year) on Oct 3 – wild card / liberating shifts in thinking and communications.
Have you been intuitive, innovative, and rolling with unexpected, incl. surprise news. No rush to ‘run with them’ though, esp if it’d come out of a ‘shock response’.

On Oct 8, VENUS also crossed over the Alchemy Point into SCORPIO:
How deep is your Love?


Tomorrow Oct 12, VENUS in SCO opposes URANUS retro in TAU
(ruled by VENUS) – which happens only once a year.

It also funnels into the Full Moon! 
Intimacy vs / and(!) Freedom in Relationships.
Freedom from the ‘Known’, from old habitual patterns that we’re attached to (either via comfort or because of unprocessed pain) and continue to attract from, until we set ourselves free. Or otherwise, Divine / Inner Soul Intervention (a Uranian thing) offers to free us.

 

Mars in Libra – Artist unknown

MARS, the ruler of ARIES, is another major cosmic player these weeks.
It’s been travelling close to the SUN this Summer (and passed by the SUN on Sept 2) which heated up the overall atmosphere.
Now, MARS is freshly in LIBRA
 (also since Oct 3, until Nov 18), ignites our Passion for Peace, Balance, Fairness, Justice, and Synergistic Partnerships, yet also turns up the ‘volume’ that pushes us to make authentic, bold, and ‘assertive’ choices -a big theme this Full Moon.

MARS opposed CHIRON in
(MARS ruled) ARIES on Oct 8 (technically ‘over’ but still rolling out until after the Full Moon). Suddenly emerging vulnerabilities (even emergencies?) call for well considered action and inter-action.
When MARS squares SATURN on Oct 27 there will be tests of responsibility & authority around choices, and when it squares PLUTO on Nov 5 it’s about choices that represent deeper change and power from within.

 

Voila – here is the chart for the exact ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon on Oct 13, at 2:08 pm PDT:

 

Can you spot the T-square of the Full Moon axis to PLUTO in CAP?
Exact to the degree – very pronounced.
PLUTO which only 10 days before the FM turned direct is the catalyst for soulful change.
And SATURN with the South Node is close to PLUTO too
(they were even closer this Spring, and come actually together on Jan 12, 2020) – demanding evidence of change that the world needs now. The time has come.

Obviously, things have come to fruition – personally (esp. if you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in the cardinal signs of ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, or CAPRICORN I bet you’re affected), interpersonally (it’s a Full Moon!) and transpersonally / collectively / societally (PLUTO).

They call us to a New Way of Being:
Showing up authentically (ARIES), meeting all our relations (LIBRA) as we truly are, and coming from a place of maturity, integrity, and intrinsic Soul Power (PLUTO in CAP)
.  
SATURN with the South Node in CAP ‘on the side’ help us muster timeless ‘old fashioned’ virtues, show up as our true best selves, be resourceful and resilient, while bringing an end to patterns and conditioning of doing things the old outmoded and likely hard ways. High time for saying NO to being taken for granted, disrespected, or outright abused – the ‘Old Empire’ IS expiring.

 

Let’s see what the 

SABIAN SYMBOL for the Full Moon 

wants to show us:

The Full Moon will be at 20°13′ ARIES – LIBRA.

ARIES 20°:
“A YOUNG GIRL FEEDING BIRDS IN WINTER.

KEYNOTE: Overcoming crises through compassion.

Nature’s seasonal rhythms imply an oscillation between living and dying. Through creative imagination humans can “fly over” the cycle, and discover means not only to escape from the fatality of seasonal decay or deprivation, but to assist other living entities to survive through crises. Migrating birds fly south (cf. symbol of Aries 12°), but by establishing a partnership with other creatures unable to escape wintry deprivation or death, a human being can maintain the life of the spirit (symbolized by birds) steady through all crises if, like a “young girl,” one is widely open to the promptings of love and sympathy.  

At this fifth stage of the symbolic sequence we witness human activity motivated by sympathy overcoming the seasonal phase of impotency. Life potency in nature spirits reaches a higher level in the human being.
The theme is THE TRANSMUTATION OF LIFE INTO LOVE.”

 

What a ‘simple’ (CAP), spontaneous (ARIES), compassionate (CANCER) symbol for our relatedness, companionship & open-hearted love to other sentient Beings (LIBRA) esp. when they need our support and can’t ‘make it’ themselves through ‘the Winter’ of crisis (PLUTO in CAP).
And it can be applied to so many situations where Nature and other Beings need our help now! Not in a polarized way that’s tainted by judgment (SN in CAP), but simply because we care and ‘innocently’ mean it, like the little girl (MOON in ARIES).


The highest level of transmutation (PLUTO in CAP) is to transform / allow Soul to transform everything, adversity, challenges, separation, even Life itself, into LOVE.

Now that evokes deep Thanks-Giving!
Being grateful for Life and Togetherness in lovingly Giving and Receiving as-in-Nature!
JUPITER in SAG, in Fire Trine with the Thanksgiving Full MOON in ARIES would benevolently agree…

 

Blessings for the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon – and beyond!

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 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.

 

 

PLUTO in CAP goes direct / forward on Oct 3: POWER to Change!

24 Sep

After the SATURN-in-CAP gear shift from retro to direct on Sept 18 we’re in PLUTO-in-CAP U-Turn mode end of Sept to mid-Oct – basically the whole LIBRA season!

On Oct 3, PLUTO in CAP turns direct / forward again!
MERCURY (on Sept 26) and VENUS (on Sept 30) are about to square PLUTO, reminding us that POWER has to do with making wise choices and finding a good match – for various purposes, resulting in peace, balance, and harmony. Maybe a transformation has been going on in you already to show you what it takes for Power to Change, and what needed to change in you to get there.

PLUTO’s retro trip since Apr 24 has brought up a lot of collective and personal inner and old  conditioning, and shown where we can feel disempowered through controlling power structures and hierarchies. This could have manifested in personal, interpersonal and societal dynamics.

With SATURN retro and the Lunar South Node so close to PLUTO retro this Spring / early Summer, we’ve seen lots of concrete evidence of old structures and the ‘Old Empire’ expiring.
Maybe you like myself have experienced situations where reality checks, closures and boundaries (SATURN in CAP) were important to demonstrate you’re not engaging in the old energy anymore but ARE the change.
The South Node is drifting further back in CAP now, while SATURN will approach and finally pass PLUTO (every 38 years only) on Jan 12, 2020. Early 2020 will be very very significant phase for building a new transformed foundation.

This is a turnaround phase to take our Power back, and / or not give it away in the first place. 

Many man-made / human-controlled greed & fear based or top-down authority structures (shadows of CAP-italist CAP) might be hard to come by / seem to require ‘moving mountains’ to make changes in distribution / accessibility / respect for everyone, no matter where they’re ‘positioned’ in the structure.
Yet, that’s also an old Capitalist and PISCES Age story that’s changing now. Too slowly??? Just-in-Time?

Inquiry questions, with the CAP theme these years (2008 – 2023) of PLUTO’s CAP destruction and REbuilding process:

  • What and where are RESOURCES (collectively and personally speaking) that don’t waste time and energy and don’t produce more waste but are renewable?
  • How can we lead life in a way that isn’t efforting / resisting but resourceful and regenerative?
  • Who are the ones (really!) in charge???
  • What’s controlling us, and how can we take Power back?
  • What’s Power from the inside-out?
  • How can we work wisely with TIME?
  • How can we be free from / beyond time control, and in timeless awareness?

 

Heart on PLUTO – as seen by the New Horizons mission in July 2015

With the stationary / direct PLUTO in CAP mode, it’s Time to RE-generate from within, in Nature, and in our True Nature.

Being connected to Source is instantly empowering.

What’s the POWER to CHANGE?

(Look at the signs…  )

Where can the change in you be sourced?
What can the status quo change into?

  • The Power of TIME and Timeliness.
    How do we know when TIME is ‘right & ripe”?
    Tuning into our inner Soul Time is the way to go.
    Astrology can help by showing us the cosmic cycles, and how to align with them, assisting our natural inner knowing and intuition. 

    Don’t let yourself get pressured by external forces (“You should be already….”) and time / resource scarcity, in this ever so 24/7 production mode world – which isn’t really all that productive anyway if natural cycles of rest and regeneration aren’t honoured.
    So perhaps the Power of TIME means to slow down, smell the Roses, and let things ripen…?
  • Honouring the Elders, and Receiving Guidance.
    Elders may be biological Elders, Spirit Elders, the spirit of the ‘Old World’…
    Being guided by them and towards them can be very powerful if you hear the call.
  • Working Well with Resources. Being Resourceful.
    Which ties into Time and Natural Laws…

    Working respectfully with the cycles of Nature, incl. our own nature, the human life cycle and day-to-day cycles. CAP traditionally works with the Land and cooperates with Nature.
    When and where is a good time / place to seed / plant / harvest?
    The Fall Equinox (Sept 23) is one of the main markers of the Solar year, and the New Moon in Libra on Sept 28 offers nature-all energy for harvesting / planting new seeds for harmony, balance and relatedness.

    There’s simplicity and beauty in this. Can we apply it again more into our lives?
    CAP says: I use what’s here and make the best out of it. I’m resourceful.
    The shadow would be to abuse, over-use, and the lack would be to under-use what would be a helpful resource.
    So, bottom line: TIME for an inventory / invent-ory.
  • Wisdom of the Body.
    The most obvious ‘earthly resource’ is our body of course. Mid-to-late CAP where PLUTO is now has also a TAURUS – VIRGO undertone – TAU rules embodiment and sensations, and VIRGO alignment.

    Don’t let yourself get de-stabilized from chaos, disruptions and imbalance around (an – understandable but not helpful – low grade experience of URANUS now in TAURUS).
    Find and stand your ground, and emBody Freedom.

    Let’s definitely bring the wisdom of the BODY in, for wise choices, and empowering change!

 

Let’s take a look at the

Sabian Symbols for the PLUTO U-Turn Point

PLUTO goes direct / forward from on Oct 3 at 20’38° CAP.

I’ll use both 20° and 21° CAP this time, to show you the theme where PLUTO would have almost gone back to (20°) but didn’t quite. This ground had been already covered (dug up and transformed) by PLUTO – representing the Power of Evolution.

 

CAPRICORN 20°

Gospel Choir – Pixabay Public Domain Graphic

“A HIDDEN CHOIR IS SINGING DURING A RELIGIOUS SERVICE.

KEYNOTE: The fulfillment of the individual’s creative function through his participation in a group performance consecrated to a transcendent realization of unity.

In great cathedrals and other religious edifices the choir is normally hidden behind the altar or above the nave. It symbolizes thus more perfectly the supernal harmony of “heaven” — or the music of the spheres. The ideal of social participation is exalted to its highest manifestation, for the choir also represents the multifaceted and polyphonic unity of the community in its transcendent state of perfect harmony. Within this harmony the individual who has overcome his egocentric separativeness and developed his higher consciousness finds fulfillment in super-personal togetherness.

This is the fifth and last symbol of this fifty-eighth sequence. It presents us with the purest form of group-harmony, the most basic yet most difficult fulfillment of the social state. At the level of the individual person this “hidden choir” would refer to the polyphonic integration of all faculties in their most spiritual manifestations: the ideal of PLENITUDE of being.”

 

And here’s the next degree – showing what’s up for change, where the shadow lies, and also where the evolution can come from.
PLUTO will activate it in Oct / Nov (and already has, early this year):

CAPRICORN 21°

Relay Race Pixabay Photo by Thomas Wolter 

A RELAY RACE.

KEYNOTE: The value of competition in developing group-consciousness.

Here we are no longer dealing with competition between individuals, but with competition between groups of individuals who take turns successively in order to maximize the group effort and the possibility of outstanding results. The whole of civilization is a vast kind of relay race in which groups of people and generations carry the torch of what we call “progress.” Major achievements result from the sum total of human strivings.

This first symbol of the fifty-ninth sequence stresses one especially dynamic aspect of “group performance.” Wherever this symbol appears, it emphasizes the value of group cooperation and of necessary give-and-take. One must seek to relate and adjust one’s strength to the challenge presented by competitors in DYNAMIC INTERCHANGE.”

 

Both the Hidden Choir and the Relay Race Symbols show different expressions of a joint performance in excellence (CAP), stimulated / motivated by unity (the NEPTUNE Archetype – presently very active) and / or challenge and competition (the MARS Archetype – also very ON). 
Both expressions show where the Power to Change can be accessed. 
Not in separation / isolation – the shadow of our oh-so ‘convenient’ electronic age – but in cooperation. Which leads over from CAP to AQUARIUS – the direction PLUTO goes towards and reaches in 2023.

We are the Change!

 

Blessings for Nature-ALL Empowerment, with PLUTO’s Turnaround!
May the Power of & to Change be with You & in You!

2019 Summer Retro Window

13 Aug

The New MOON in LEO on July 31 / Aug 1 CAT-alyzed a Retro Window of 5 – 6 Planets (until Sept 18 / Oct 2 when SATURN & PLUTO go direct again)! 
Not quite like the RETRO Record Summer 2018 with Seven Planets Retro.

But still – also this Summer 2019, with 5 – 6 Planets simultaneously retro we’re been called to go backwards / inwards, to REsolve and RElease, esp. when it comes to old low and unconscious perhaps karmically ‘inherited’ vibrations of… 

Brief RE-view – since it’s out of post-retro ‘storm’ now:
MERCURY in LEO / CANCER (retro July 7 – 31):
Old mental patterns that revolve around oneself, perhaps in dramatic- narcissistic ways. Going in circles, regressing into previous stages of life, living in our memories.

JUPITER in mid SAG (retro since Apr 10 – just turned direct on Aug 11):
Old stories and beliefs that shape our philosophy and outlook on life.

SATURN in mid CAP (retro Apr 29 – Sept 18):
Old REpetitive patterns, karma, blocks and obstacles, being stuck in (self) judgment, taking too much on, carrying too much, being the scapegoat.

CHIRON in early AR (retro July 8 – Dec 12):
Old stressful early life wounds / survival mode wounds.

URANUS in early TAU (just went retro Aug 11 – Jan 10, 2020):
Old attachments and sticky habits that prevent us from embodying our true freedom.

NEPTUNE in mid PI (retro June 21 – Nov 27):
Old overwhelm, confusion, delusions, addictions, feeling victimized, and ways of ‘checking out’ and giving up.

PLUTO in later CAP (retro Apr 24 – Oct 2):
Old (outer and inner) control patterns, old oppressive and abusive powers that prevent us from being in our true Power.

 

12 Olympians – which direction are the Planetary Gods & Goddesses going?

 

.…and find through re-visiting and re-leasing from the ‘inside-out’ more conscious vibrations. as in:

MERCURY in CANCER / LEO:
Being compassionate and caring with ourselves, maybe even going back to our Baby self and the messages s/he received, giving her / him extra care, and showing her / him how loved and welcome s/he is, helps us to express and show ourselves lovingly, passionately, creatively, and heart-fully.

JUPITER in mid SAG:
Finding the Truth about our Gratitude for Life, our Belief in Ourselves, and Walking the Path of Love.

SATURN in mid CAP:
Standing in our Authority & Values, prioritizing what matters most, lightening the load, and working with our Best.

CHIRON in early AR:
The ‘wound’ carries the Medicine. When we experience ourselves as standing alone facing the collective it also brings out the Medicine of being Authentic.

URANUS in early TAU:
Being free from attachments (to habits, stuff, location) leads to emBodying Freedom in so many ways…

NEPTUNE in mid PI:
Dropping into Unity Consciousness, in the Unified Field.

PLUTO in later CAP:
Empowered by and for Evolution.

 

Wishing you well in the Retro Summer 2019!

GURU PURNIMA Full Moon Blessings – with the ‘Astro Gurus’ JUPITER and SATURN

16 Jul

Dear Astro~News Reader,

indeed, there’s a lot to today’s Full MOON in CAP – CAN / Partial Lunar Eclipse!

Theme is (see Eclipse post): Transforming the Old – Being ONE Love!

Clearly, this Eclipse MOON with SATURN / South Node, VEGA, and next to PLUTO gets our attention, and has us release old attachments, judgment, and conditioning, to come back to the Light of Consciousness, and of the Loving Heart.

A la MERCURY retrograde, I found again this Ram Das article A Heavy Curriculum– very apropos the projections about change and judgment going along with it:
“If somebody is a problem for you, it’s not that they should change, it’s that you need to change. If they’re a problem for themselves that’s their karma, if they’re causing you trouble that’s your problem with yourself…..”

  • What’s our job when people ‘are difficult’?
  • How do our lunar emotions and needs (like, for them to love and appreciate us) have power over us, pull you into judgment and separation (SATURN) and out of Love?
  • What needs to deepen to change (PLUTO) in this?

A heavy curriculum… (a la CAP)… yet lightened and transformed in the Heart.

I get it. Been there with family, other ‘karmic partners’, and even ‘random people’…

This Full Moon also helps us connect with ‘Ancient Essence’ – the essence of the Ancestors (PLUTO in CAP, super close to the MOON). Biological Ancestors, ancient Teachers, Ancestors of the Land…
Maybe their Spirit is speaking to us… helping us transform old (usually fear / separation based) energies that prevent us from being in the Love and in Heart Space.

 

In Hindu and Buddhist tradition, the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru.

Ganesha

Ganesh, the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ is invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays / -years…
SATURN (ruler of CAP) is presently IN CAP (Winter Solstice 2017 – Winter Solstice 2020) where karmic challenges for ‘the journey’ / the path arise.
Only to teach us what our inner blocks, judgments, and resistance are, and handing it over to PLUTO in CAP to help with the transformation – as things are irreversably evolving collectively.

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way, and lead by example, just like the CAP goat slowly but surely climbing up the mountain, and the CAP SUN climbing up the Ecliptic.

 


OM_concentric
“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the SUN is closest to the Earth and the Full MOON reflects the brightest light.
It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.
Truth is, the SUN is not closest to the Earth in Summer but in early January, however the CANCER SUN is so bright and strong and it’s early Summer in the Northern hemisphere.

Because the energies of the SUN and of the MOON in reflection are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun these day will bring growth and auspiciousness in life.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman / Universal Self, just as the MOON reflects the brightness of the SUN.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner Guru / Teacher / Mentor / Light Bringer, I’d say.

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS  (PLUTO points us to ‘that’).
The Guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the Mentor, and SATURN, the Teacher.

Presently, JUPITER is retro and in its own SAG domain (until Dec 3, 2019), this year in triple square with mystical NEPTUNE in its own PISCEAN domain.

Gifts and happiness (JUPITER in SAG) require surrender and letting go, which leads to Unity (NEPTUNE in PI).
Once we SEE the benefits (JUPITER in SAG) deep gratitude and an abundant life are the results.

 

Saturn & Earth

SATURN, this year in mid-CAP, quintessential integrity teacher, is also very supportive at this Guru Puja time, since it forms two relationships with transpersonal Archetypes:

  • A triple sextile this year with NEPTUNE in PISCES – the teaching and on-going practice is surrender and connection.
    Flow and ease in the ‘achievement’ follow.
  • An almost-exact conjunction with PLUTO (strongest in May / June 2019, and exact conjunct on Jan 12, 2020.
    As we’re called / pressured to complete and be done with what’s old and doesn’t serve Humanity, Planet Earth, and all Beings, esp. abusive, disrespectful top-down control and power, we’re also called to Build the New from the inside-out – a caring and compassionate world, based on Love – the ‘top priority’ that IS.

Pluto Reveals… One of the first pictures New Horizons transmitted from the close fly-by in July 2015

Have I mentioned?
Almost all the planetary Archetypes mentioned are presently retro:

MERCURY, JUPITER, SATURN, CHIRON, URANUS (going retro on Aug 11), and PLUTO!
Excellent for inward-turning movement….

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026), so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices from our biological and Spirit ancestry have reached our modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.
The ‘trick’ is to really be consistent and apply them into our daily and most challenging situations – says SATURN in CAP.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The Light in me honours the Light in you!
May we ground and embody it.

CAP New MOON / PSE on Jan 5 / 6 – Let the Old Empire Expire!

4 Jan

Dear Astro~News Reader,

We ‘made it’ (always such a CAP statement) into 2019!

And the first New MOON of the year, in CAP of course, on JAN 5 (in the Americas, 5:28 pm PST) / JAN 6 (Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand) is on the doorstep.
(The next New MOON btw on FEB 4 heralds the Chinese New Year of the Yin Earth Pig, starting on FEB 5).

 

This one’s rather an ‘OLD-to-New MOON’ though, I’d say – Why?
CAP is old and mature energy, that too, but mostly:

  • Because it’s a Partial Solar Release Eclipse with the South Node, and also:
  • The Eclipse New Moon is sandwiched between SATURN (closure, endings) and PLUTO (the power of evolution and transformation)…

Where’s the release, closure, and transformation?
In CAPricornian matters, of course.
As in: 

 

  • Dropping what we’ve taken on – heavy duty burdens, guilt, old ‘inherited’ ‘shoulds’, jobs that aren’t ours, other people’s business, ‘paying’ for others’ BS, being a scape goat….
    Maybe a slow process, but so worth committing to, checking in, noticing, and consciously removing ourselves from those energies and adopted roles.

 

  • Giving wayyy too much Time and precious Life Energy to complaining about structures that ‘rule over us’ – whereas we keep disempowering ourselves.
    What can we constructively-creatively DO instead?

 

  • Judgment and resistance. Which are often linked.
    With awareness, recognizing and tuning into the energy of judgment, and how it pretends to protect you but automatically separates you. Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?
    How can you direct the energy into something constructive, like modelling what you do want to see, and not cluttering your time with mulling over ‘their shortcomings’ and feeding your righteousness? 
    Plus, let’s be compassionate. Everybody is on their Soul Journey. We never know what people go through and what their history is, leading them to show up as they do. And you might even have a ‘Soul Contract’ with those ‘challenging people’ – what’s the teaching – for YOU?
    NEPTUNE in PI in triple sextile with SATURN in CAP (both planetary Archetypes in their own ruled Zodiac signs – very pure and effective that way) this year helps with Spiritual Teachings – leading to karmic (SATURN) release (NEPTUNE).

 

  • All in all, releasing the Shadow and Redundancy of the Old World that we might be still (at least residually) conditioned by, and dragging along:
    Authority issues (esp. giving it away and blaming others for our misery – sounds like residues of the Piscean Age to me too…). What would it look like, and what’s required and possible to show up in our own authority? The SUN passed SATURN in CAP on New Year’s Day, bringing up Authority themes, and calling us to be consciously and creatively in our Authority.
    Fears – which might be related to old trauma that of course needs to be processed, or they can be an excuse for procrastinating, holding ourselves back, and putting our life on hold. Time for inner inquiry in that regard…
    I like the acronym for F.E.A.R. = False Evidence Appearing Real.
    And the 3 questions from The Work by Byron Katie (which can be applied to other mental constructs and restrictions as well of course): 
    Is it true? How do you know it’s true? Who would you be without this?
    Unnecessary Restrictions, as in: scarcity mentality, loyalty to the past, living by redundant rules…
    Guilt – uhhh, another one that can get us, and often related to upbringing, authoritative / religious conditioning about ‘thou shalt / not….’ and psychological control. Often linked to shame. As always with these symptoms, key is to identify, and notice they’re just another attempt to keep us small, separate, not good enough, in a box, etc…
    Judgment (see above).
    Yet, natural inner Authority and Maturity, the conscious and resolved CAPRICORN gifts, lay beyond those CAP phenomena in the shadow, on ‘higher ground’ that SAG (‘before CAP) can take us to, with JUPITER in SAG this year helping to raise big awareness, and outgrow the old and small.

 

  • What can these energies transform into / be re-purposed for a Higher and the Greater Good? That’s where PLUTO in CAP comes in.
    Like: Finding our ‘Mountain’, and consistently walking with / on OUR Purpose.
    Naturally, it’s easier with less ‘old baggage’. And intrinsic Power-of-Nature / Soul Power is the fuel that sustains us.

    The SUN will align with PLUTO on JAN 11 – shedding light at this inevitable transformation and evolution that’s already happening.
    Life is easier when we join the River of Change…

These themes have been obviously already ‘upon’ / within us, moving their way through us personally and collectively –
ever since PLUTO (since 2008), SATURN (Dec 20, 2017) and the South Node (Nov 16, 2018) moved into CAP.


This year however, they’re clearly compounded and ‘sealed-off’,
with three South Node Eclipses:

JAN 5: PSE / New MOON in CAP 
JULY 2: TLE / Full MOON in CAP – CAN
DEC 25: Christmas New MOON / Annular Solar Eclipse in CAP.

 

Before taking a look at the cosmic patterns in the New MOON / Eclipse chart,
here’s a very apt quote / contemplation by Canadian Poet Laureate and sage Ann Mortifee, from her book In Love with the Mystery, adding important pieces round steady patience and chipping away….

 

 

…which is also – literally – very much apropos MERCURY entering CAP today JAN 4 – more notes about that move below.
And MERCURY will be in the CAP New MOON Team of 6 (yes, SIX! Check it out on the Eclipse chart!)!

Yes, time to look into the area of life that’s prone to chipping and sculpting – chances are it’s mostly related to where CAP is in your birth chart.
Where dropping and cropping and pruning is ‘up’ – only to bring relief, and bring us closer to our real self.

And I’d add, in accord with the Release Eclipse, and with NEPTUNE these years (2012 – 2026) in PISCES, in mutually supportive triple-sextile with SATURN in CAP this year – exact on JAN 31, JUNE 18, and NOV 8:
Allow Life, circumstances, the Universe to help you let go of what you might still carry but what isn’t YOU (anymore, if ever).
A Cosmic Blessing to continuously release, receive, re-orient.

 

Here’s the Astro Chart of the Super CAPPY (yes, Group of SIX!) New MOON / PSE!

The NEW MOON will be exact on JAN 5 at 5:28 pm PST, and the maximum Eclipse at 5:41 pm PST.
The Path of the Eclipse goes over North East Asia and parts of Alaska.
On a mundane level it affects the countries it crosses over.
Yet not as strongly as a Total Solar Eclipse (last one on Aug 21, 2017 on the ‘Sphinx Point’ over the U.S.).

 

So there it is – the whole CAPPY Party:

  • MERCURY (freshly in CAP from this eve JAN 4 on).
    I’ve written about the period of MERCURY in CAP (until JAN 23), and how the energy can be well used – interested?
  • SATURN now making its way to central CAP which it activates this year in the 3-year curriculum (DEC 2017 – DEC 2020). Here’s the SATURN-in-CAP blog post from the time of its entry a year ago. Can be referred to over the whole course of this important phase.
  • The NEW MOON at 15°24′ CAP. 
  • PLUTO, now 2/3 into CAP, since 2008, until 2023.
  • The South Node (NOV 16, 2018 – JUNE 5, 2020) – with the North Node in CANCER.
    The Nodes are ‘co-responsible’ for Eclipses in the CAP and CAN seasons, in 2019.
    Here’s the CAP-CAN Nodal blog post from NOV if you’d like to read up their Astro themes.

Yes, the emphasis of the CAP New MOON / Solar Eclipse is for several reasons on release, closure, and transformation of old CAP sides
…while ‘filling our cup’ from the CANCER side (What are our needs? What nurtures us and how do we nurture and care? Where do you belong?),
…from which place we have fresh energy to be present and just-in-time with our CAP Purpose and Priorities – which would have likely renewed through the process anyway!

 

Let’s take a look at the 

SABIAN SYMBOL for the Eclipse New MOON!

The NEW MOON at 15°24′ CAP. 

16° CAP: 

“SCHOOL GROUNDS FILLED WITH BOYS AND GIRLS IN GYMNASIUM SUITS.

KEYNOTE: The need for physical activity and play, especially in adolescence.

Society has learned that a balanced combination of intellectual study and physical activity is necessary for the harmonious development of the human personality. Adults often forget this under the pressure of money-making and other duties, and this symbol reminds us of it.

This is the first stage of the fifty-eighth five-fold sequence which begins Scene Twenty of the cyclic ritual. It shows how we normally depend upon physical stimulation and EXERCISE for the maintenance of our health, and therefore of an equally healthy society.”

 

Yes, the old-style exercise and drill, emphasizing on performance, even fear and punishment, at least carrot and stick in the olden days, has come a long way…
Nowadays, the Sabian Symbol in contemporary Western pop culture looks rather like a Yoga class for all of us Young-at-Heart. 
Yoga is such a perfect CAPricornian way of sustaining and maintaining overall Body-Mind-Spirit wellness, without much equipment (not much to carry, ha-ha). It can be done almost anywhere (even pranayama breathing while sitting…, standing literally in Mountain pose, perhaps while waiting somewhere…).
So here’s to the Yogic regeneration and evolution of ‘exercise’ (nowadays rather called Practice)!
And it can also provide super important balance, given the ever increasing degenerative sedentary lifestyle via modern-day ‘conveniences’ (shadow of the CAPitalist CAPricorn world).
Loving the massive evolutionary come-back of this ancient practice (CAP) in our modern time, with an even bigger trend in the last decade since PLUTO’s been in CAP (2008).

Pragmatic CAP could say: Exercise increases our productivity and overall performance IN the system.
Ha, good for the economy (incl. all the Yoga classes, gear, etc…) – yes, true. And LOTS of CAPitalization shadow also in the world of Yoga, whereas some on ‘top of the pyramid’ reap the benefits while others pay the tickets, and most  ‘spiritual programs / retreats’ on the market aren’t accessible to most, and other shadow elements like sexual abuse too, for sure – CAP says: I use, and abuse of power, energy, money, people is the shadow – in all things organized (CAP).
But that’s hopefully you don’t fall into the shadow traps.
From a CANCER side doing Yoga and other physical-spiritual practices consistently (CAP) makes us feel good and nurtured, and we can be more creative and nurturing to others, simply-purely…

I’ve been on the Yogic path for ages, and have no intention of dropping it since it’s done me and my wellness so good, from the inside-out.

Even if you don’t have a Yoga class nearby or are travelling, there are options of doing Yoga online (yes, with some more CAP self discipline but also freedom). I love and recommend DoYogaWithMe out of Victoria BC! – with a huge array of classes, and a big portion of them filmed outdoors! If you do the classes from home / travel abode a la CANCER you don’t need any fancy Yoga gear / commuting time, plus it costs you very little.

Whether it’s Yoga that sustains you, or other Mind-Body-Spirit practices – this is to our overall Wellness and Energy Resilience & Regeneration in 2019 and beyond, in our own Authority (yes, we know what’s good for us…), and for the Highest Good!

 

What Poses and Movements are the other Planetary Players into, and up to these days…

…activated by and activating for the Eclipse New MOON?

 

First things first:

MARS entered its own sign ARIES, on Dec 31 / Jan 1!

Let Your Super Hero Emerge. Initiate something New & Fresh. Assert Yourself, and be Authentic!

With MARS now freshly in ARIES, and the SUN in CAP just past SATURN (since New Year’s) it’s easier to move with a clear and conscious Spirit past what appeared as obstacles, fears, judgments, and old blockages, and to stand in our authority and have agency.


This is OUR Time & Life.
Let’s not postpone or give up, but do what matters, with the Time and Energy we have here!

Read on, in the ASTRO~NEWS blog post for MARS in ARIES.

 

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

 

MERCURY crosses over the ‘Integrity Point’, and enters CAP – this eve, Jan 4.

Communicating from Integrity is on now – incl. in connection with the Partial Solar Eclipse in CAP on JAN 5.
No more putting up with BS, disrespect, ‘takers’, abusers, and thoughts / communication that drain or waste your time and energy (shadow of CAP, to be released with the Eclipse, also via / from our Mind).
Being clear and stating simply what’s in Integrity for you and what isn’t. Plus, walking away from a situation can speak louder than 1000 words. Walking instead of talking / trying to educate / reform them about what they’re not cap-able of…


On JAN 8, MERCURY freshly in CAP squares MARS freshly in AR.
Angry words and arguments can be ignited, frustration about what doesn’t work can come up.
Channeling the energy into clearly, responsibly stating what you do want and what works for you, and not making it about others is a purer and cleaner way of going effectively with that combo.


Read on, in the MERCURY into CAP blog post.

 

The Planetary Archetype URANUS is associated with Prometheus, the Greek Hero who capturing the fire of spirit and creative inventiveness from the Gods for Humanity. 

The Big News around the Eclipse: URANUS in late ARIES makes a Move –

…from retro (since AUG 7, 2018) to direct / forward, the day after the Eclipse, JAN 6!

‘Wild Card’ URANUS end of ARIES (already since NOV, and continued throughout JAN, then fading) forms a T-square with the Nodal Axis of the Lunar South Node in late CAP, and the Lunar North Node end of CANCER!
Can you see the red configuration in the chart? (also marked on top of the wheel).

Sounds / looks / feels like Liberation to be authentic and free, as in:
Freedom from old burdensome heavy, taxing, systemic fear and control structures (CAP South Node, close to PLUTO) which we might have also internalized.
Freedom for being true to ourselves, taking care of our needs, being gentle, compassionate, and playfully-creative (CAN North Node) rather than productivity driven and always running out of time while being enslaved to the system (CAP South Node).
And even a Freedom beyond ‘from’ or ‘for’ – which is still conditional, and simply Freedom (without opposites).
Cuz, Freedom from or for is still dependent / conditional, and not really free (loved this pointer by J. Krishnamurti, suggesting, true Freedom is Freedom without an opposite.

 

With URANUS changing direction, there’s a climate of wake-up calls, unpredictability, surprises, even shocks, paradigm shifts, and out-of-the-ordinary experiences. The URANian ‘station’ and activation of its Archetype is in effect and noticeable all through JAN, activating both Eclipses on JAN 5 / 6 and JAN 20 / 21.
Re-invent yourself!
Awaken from a CAP mode of being slave to a system that eats up our time and energy, and into full-on Presence with what IS. Presence in the NOW.

URANUS is also related to weather patterns – and shows when all kinds of systems are ‘out of whack’.
Yesterday, when I was writing in my cozy home there was a wild and intense rain storm going on outside. And today it’s fresh and clear again. Things can shift fast – and free up energy, and URANUS in ARIES is all for it.

 

Retro Free Phase!

Once URANUS goes out of retro (on JAN 6) there will be a phase without a major Planet retrograde until early MARCH (when MERCURY goes retro again) – woohoo!
A good time to start the year with outer manifestations which can accelerate quite magically these days (propelled by MARS and URANUS in ARIES).

 

VENUS comes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG, on Jan 7!

A ‘long time coming’ for VENUS the Love Goddess who, due to ‘her’ Retro ‘Underworld Journey’ in Fall 2018, has been in SCORPIO for extremely long, since the New MOON in VIR on 09 / 09, all through October, and again all through December.

Hope you channeled the energy into Love for Life’s Magic and Mystery, and a full-on regeneration of the Inner Divine Feminine in her Power!

 

The ‘PHOENIX VENUS’ is also part of the Partial Solar Eclipse in CAP.
Guess what that adds up to?
Rise of the Feminine, and, post-VENUS-retro, regenerated Inner Values (‘New VENUS’ since Oct 26), rather than (old-old!) comparing ourselves, and being so concerned about what ‘they’ think, and who loves us, bla-bla.

VENUS will be in fiery & inspired SAG until FEB 3, and meet big Mentor JUPITER there on JAN 22 – right after the Total LUNAR Eclipse Full MOON in LEO – AQ.
It’ll be fun! Lots of Opportunities to attract from the Heart and from Gratitude, Generosity, and Abundance – which are all attributes of LOVE – that’s where it’s at.

 

So here we go, so much cosmic support of releasing the Old, and getting ready for a fresh and better way and World in 2019!


A Release Ceremony just before the NEW MOON / Partial Solar Eclipse at 5:28 pm PST tomorrow JAN 5 would support the outflow of old energy and invitation of a New Wave!

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 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!

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers – extended to JAN 6 (Epiphany)! …to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!
Treat Time is popular as ever, and with the 2-for-1 Offer my best deal of the year.

 

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES
…via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you – also available as an online participant.


Next up:
Astro New Year’s Parlour on JAN 9
…where we of course also address the effects of the Solar Eclipse in CAP, and a ‘suggested course of action / release’, individually customized for everyone in the circle, with their personal birth chart involved.
2 groups, afternoon and evening, with online participation option as well.

 

 

PLUTO goes direct / forward on Sept 30: POWER to Change!

20 Sep

We’re in PLUTO U-Turn mode!

On Sept 30, PLUTO in mid-CAP turns direct / forward again!
The LIBRA New Moon on Oct 8 will square PLUTO, reminding us that POWER has to do with making wise choices, resulting in peace, balance, and harmony.

PLUTO’s retro trip since Apr 22 has brought up a lot of collective and personal inner and old  conditioning and shown where we can feel disempowered through controlling power structures and hierarchies. This could have manifested in personal, interpersonal and societal dynamics.

This is a turnaround phase to take our Power back, and / or not give it away in the first place. 

Many man-made / human-controlled greed & fear based structures might be hard to come by / seem to require ‘moving mountains’ to make changes in distribution / accessibility.
Yet, that’s also an old Capitalist and PISCES Age story that’s changing now. Too slowly??? Just-in-Time?

Inquiry questions, with the CAP theme these years (2008 – 2023) of PLUTO’s CAP destruction and REbuilding process:

  • What and where are RESOURCES (collectively and personally speaking) that don’t produce more waste but are renewable?
  • How can we engage in a state that isn’t efforting / resisting but resourceful and regenerative?
  • Who are the ones (really!) in charge???
  • What’s controlling us, and how can we take POWER back?
  • What’s Power from the inside-out?
  • How can we work wisely with TIME?
  • How can we be free from / beyond time control, and in timeless awareness?

 

Heart on PLUTO – as seen by the New Horizons mission in July 2016

With the stationary / direct PLUTO in CAP mode, it’s Time to RE-generate from within, in Nature, and in our True Nature.

Being connected to Source is instantly empowering.

What’s the POWER to CHANGE?

(Look at the signs…  )

Where can the change in you be sourced?
What can the status quo change into?

  • The Power of TIME and Timeliness.
    How do we know when TIME is ‘right & ripe”?
    Tuning into our inner Soul Time intuition is the way to go. And Astrology can help by showing us the cosmic cycles, and how to align with them, assisting our natural inner knowing and alignment.

    Don’t let yourself get pressured by external forces (“You should be already….”) and time scarcity, in this ever so 24/7 production mode world – which isn’t really all that productive anyway if natural cycles of rest and regeneration aren’t honoured.
    So perhaps the Power of TIME means to slow down, smell the Roses, and let things ripen…?
  • Honouring the Elders, and Receiving Guidance.
    Elders may be biological Elders, Spirit Elders, the spirit of the ‘Old World’…
    Being guided by them and towards them can be very powerful if you hear the call.
  • Working Well with Resources. Being Resourceful.
    Which ties into Time and Natural Laws…

    Working respectfully with the cycles of Nature, incl. our own nature, the human life cycle and day-to-day cycles. CAP traditionally works with the Land and cooperates with Nature.
    When and where is a good time / place to seed / plant / harvest?
    There’s simplicity and beauty in this. Can we apply it again more into our lives?
    CAP says: I use what’s here and make the best out of it. I’m resourceful.
    The shadow would be to abuse, over-use, and the lack would be to under-use what would be a helpful resource.
    So, bottom line: TIME for an inventory / invent-ory.
  • Wisdom of the Body.
    The most obvious ‘earthly resource’ is our body of course. Mid-CAP where PLUTO is now has also a TAURUS undertone – TAU rules embodiment and sensations.

    Don’t let yourself get de-stabilized from chaos and imbalance around (an – understandable but not helpful – low grade experience of UR going back into late AR early Nov to early March).
    Find and stand your ground.

    Let’s definitely bring the wisdom of the BODY in, for wise choices, and empowering change!

 

Let’s take a look at the

Sabian Symbols for the PLUTO U-Turn Point

PLUTO goes direct / forward from on Sept 30 at 18’45° CAP.

I’ll use both 18° and 19° CAP this time, to show you the theme where PLUTO would have almost gone back to (18°) but didn’t quite. This ground had been already covered (dug up and transformed) by PLUTO – representing the Power of Evolution:

 

PHASE 288 (CAPRICORN 18°): 
“THE UNION JACK FLAG FLIES FROM A BRITISH WARSHIP.

“Type 45 Destroyer HMS Daring leaving Portsmouth Harbour on its maiden deployment. Britain has no major warships deployed on operations beyond home waters in what has been described as an ‘unprecedented’ (!) absence of the vessels on the world stage.” See PA story Defence Warships. Photo credit: Chris Ison / PA Wire Dec 20, 2017.

KEYNOTE:
The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.

This symbol reflects conditions prevailing in the past when Great Britain’s fleet was policing the seas under the international principle of the freedom of the seas.
Times have changed, but the concept remains valid.
Power is required to maintain social order and relatively peaceful interpersonal as well as international relationships.
Alas, this power can easily be misused under the pretext of preserving “law and order.” Justice and compassion must balance social power, and especially the power of privileged groups.

Where this symbol appears, the need for protection may be in evidence — or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage.

This is the third symbol in the fifty-eighth five-fold sequence. It brings to us a realization of the ambivalence of POLITICAL POWER, its value and its dangers.”

Definitely, we’ve seen a lot of what the description of this symbol represents on the World Power ‘Stage’ (is it all a play???), amped up in the last few years.

Get this: 
PLUTO first touched on the 18° CAP degree in Spring 2016, and then went fully over it from Feb 2017 on, completing (off the U-turn grind) the ‘death-to-the-old and make-over’ by end of October 2018!
Just in time for Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, and:
For the U.S. midterm elections on Nov 6 (ha, on the second-last day of JUPITER in SCO which is ruled by PLUTO – deep sh..-to-change for the better).

 

 

And here’s the next degree – showing what’s up for change, where the shadow lies, and also where the evolution can come from.
PLUTO will activate it in Oct / Nov (and already has, early this year):

 

PHASE 289 (CAPRICORN 19°): 
“A FIVE-YEAR-OLD CHILD CARRYING A BAG FILLED WITH GROCERIES.

KEYNOTE:
Rising to the occasion when asked to assume social responsibilities ahead of one’s normal development.

What seems to be implied at this stage of the cyclic process is the value of early conditioning in teaching one how to fulfill the responsibilities of everyday life in our modern society. This twentieth scene of the complete process has been entitled “Group performance,” and today it is evident that Children at an early age are expected to assume a family role which at times will strain their natural capacities. This is part of the accelerating pace of our technological society.

This fourth stage symbol evokes the possibility of meeting a certain type of social opportunity which normally may seem premature.
A pattern of ACCELERATED GROWTH can thus be established, with both positive and negative aspects. Rushing ahead of one’s natural development may be damaging; yet we are living in a particularly dynamic period of human evolution.”

Please note: Dane Rudhyar wrote this interpretation of the Sabian Symbols in 1973! Ever so timely and intensified in the meantime….


Yes, we need to assume and carry the grocery bags of responsibility where ‘protective adults’ i.e. political powers and people in charge have failed to take care of human needs.

In fact, the whole hierarchical, patriarchal societal pyramidal subordination system is undergoing massive change, and everybody is called to step up to the occasion – whatever our ‘position’ (what’s that anymore?) may be.
And good news:
Instead of buying into and relying on what’s been ‘fed’ to the people by the ‘elite’ we can choose our quality ‘groceries’ (on all levels), access resources, and build the new from the bottom up.
Which might translate into: Living Simply so that Others can Simply Live!

That’s where it’s going i.m.o., as we’re gradually moving into the Aquarian Age – PLUTO leaving CAP, and entering AQ in 2023 being a clear indicator.

Blessings for Nature-ALL Empowerment, with PLUTO’s Turnaround!

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 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.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES
…via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

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

CANCER Super New Moon / PSE Opposite PLUTO retro / LILITH in CAP: At Home in this Changing World

10 Jul

Dear Astro~News Reader, in the virtual ComMOONity,

…whether you call a place in North or South America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa, or Europe your home, and / or the home of your Ancestors.

Where IS your Home?

In this World-of-Change we can theoretically live and work (from) anywhere, and spend our precious time, energy, and resources on what matters most (do we?) rather than ‘wasting’ them on things like commuting.

I’ve been living this vision since 2000 when I immigrated to Canada and moved to my ‘second home’ on beautiful Vancouver Island – while still feeling quite connected to my home and family in Bavaria – , and also opened my Astrology practice the same Summer (18-year anniversary coming up in August – yay!). Not that it’s a piece of cake to build a sustainable practice and livelihood but passion and perseverance, resilience and resourcefulness have certainly helped. And it takes a village…

LOVE and Creative Cooperation are the best fuel, says also the Zodiac axis from CAN / LEO to CAP / AQ (creativity & cooperation & community building).

Creative Cooperation is a big theme for this CANCER Super New Moon / Partial Solar Seed Eclipse almost exactly opposite PLUTO retro in CAP, as the energy axis from CAN / LEO is now hugely activated, and calls to be bridged (rather than polarized).

So, let’s break it down a bit more systematically (I bet VENUS now in VIRGO and all our VIRGO features would appreciate that 🙂 ).

 

Several things are special about the upcoming NEW MOON:

  • It’ll be in CANCER where the MOON is naturally ‘at Home’ – where our feelings turn to nesting, nurturing, home and family.
  • It’ll be the second / central of 3 Super New Moons.
  • It’ll be a Partial Solar Eclipse – opening the portal for the Summer Eclipse Season – 3 Eclipses (usually two) come in a row: PSE / New Moon on JULY 12, TLE / Full Moon on JULY 27, and PSE / New Moon on AUG 11. And it’ll be a ‘Seed Eclipse’ as I call it (what’s that???).
  • It’ll be exactly opposite PLUTO retro in CAP, and LILITH nearby.

Let’s see what all these qualities translate into, energetically.

Hopefully some of the themes described below, together with YOUR Feelings and Creative Intuition inspires you for a NEW MOON Ceremony?
Good days would be Thu eve (at or shortly after the New Moon at 7:48 pm PDT) or on Fri the 13th – a VENUS / MOON Day of the Sacred Feminine.

 

New Moon Goddess – artist unknown

 

CANCER New Moon –
New Home, New Tribe, New Family. New Sense of Nurturing.

How are you FEELING these days?
Go with how you FEEL about a situation (rather than rationalizing) – says also JUPITER (which is best friends with CANCER – true, ask your Astrologer!) now strong and stationary in SCORPIO, suggesting: Trust your instinct & gut feeling!

What and whom are you nurturing, and what nurtures you?
Yeah, that’s what CANCER is all about. Emotional nurturing and caring. How does it feel to you when you show you care? And when you experience others care about you and about their relationship with you?

Where to you have a sense of belonging?
SO CANCER. Belonging not so much in a physical sense but as a felt sense of feeling at home. The New Moon invites us to find our Home in a new way. 

Who / where’s your Tribe & Family?
The New Moon is a threshold from an old situation to a new one, like closing a door and opening a new portal – even more so as a (Partial) Solar Eclipse where the MOON (visible in Southern Australia / Antarctica) covers the Solar disk partially.

Are old themes re: Family and Tribe coming up for you these days, that are now transforming (PLUTO opp. the New Moon, and JUPITER this year in SCORPIO, ruled by PLUTO)?
It might have been a longer process – but hey, deep structural patterns take time to change (says also PLUTO in CAP, 2009 – 2023).
The ‘Seed’ Eclipse New Moon (more about it below) is like a conception of the New – still ‘invisible’ yet starting to grow.
Maybe this means you literally transform into feeling at home in a new Tribe and Family?

 

SUPER NEW MOON Series of 3

ALL 3 New Moons on June 13, July 12, and Aug 11 are Super Moons, since the MOON is now in Perigee = the Moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit, when in the Zodiac signs of GEMINI, CANCER, and LEO.

This one is the second and central Super New Moon – sandwiched by the GEM and LEO SNMs – perhaps the strongest of them. 
The CANCER – CAP axis is strongly activated too – linking over to New Year’s 2018!
Remember the Super Moon on Jan 1? A spectacular Full Moon in CANCER – CAP it was, and very emotional for many of us.
With a Super New Moon, we can’t see how close the Moon is and how large it appears (as with a Super Full Moon) but its effects are nevertheless stronger than ‘regular’ New Moons – I bet you feel that.

This CANCER NEW MOON Super Moon connects back to the CAN – CAP New Year’s Super Full Moon. Also, since the CAN – CAP axis is again activated, via PLUTO in CAP:
How did you feel about Home, Family / Tribe, and Nurturance, in a personal way, and / or for Humanity on our Home Planet Earth round New Years, and how has that evolved since?
What can a contribution to beneficial and nurturing change look like?

 

Numerological Super Moon Magic:
Clear Completion and New Beginning, with 10 = 1+0

Have you noticed? 
Together with two dear clients on Monday morning and early afternoon, we realized that the dates of the THREE Super Moon New Moons on
JUNE 13 in GEMINI
JULY 12 in CANCER (Partial Solar Eclipse)
AUG 11 in LEO (Partial Solar Eclipse)
all add up to 10 (1+3+6; 1+2+7; 1+1+8) – pointing to completion (10) and new beginning (1) – out of zero point consciousness.

 

Voyager Tarot card X Fortune Photo & Crystal Activation by Melanie

 

X is the Wheel of Fortune in traditional Tarot.
In the VOYAGER deck which I bring in quite often at private sessions and in group Parlours it’s ‘simply’ Fortune.

Abundance comes from turning the wheel (don’t just expect things to ‘roll in’).
Yet also: ‘Be careful what you wish for’ – the Universe brings feedback on what you passionately put out (even what we passionately hate). Attention is magical, and a precious ‘commodity’ – social media and marketing know a lot about this..
Plus: Abundance and good fortune are in the eye and mind of the beholder, i.o.w., when we’re grateful, generously share, and cultivate feeling fortunate we live in a world of abundance.

With these # 10 = 1 + 0 Super New Moons, let’s feel into the Fortune of being on Planet Earth at this Time of Change where we have the opportunity of Co-creating in new Tribes, Families, and Communities. 
And:
Out of Zero Point consciousness of pure potentiality arises the ONE – Being at Home in the ONE.

 

The CANCER Super New Moon is a Partial Solar ECLIPSE – opening the Portal for 3 Eclipses this Summer:

Partial Solar Eclipse

  • Partial SOLAR Eclipse / New Moon in CAN, on JULY 12.

 

  • TOTAL LUNAR Eclipse / Full Moon in AQ – LEO, on JULY 27.

 

  • Partial SOLAR Eclipse / New Moon in LEO, on Aug 11.

These accentuated SoLunar Gates invite us:
* To
be in our Loving, Self-Loving, and Life-Loving vibrations (the LEO North Node incentive is strong now!).
* To show ourselves more heart-fully, be creative and seen (rather than ‘watching someone else’s show’).
* To release (the AQ South Node shadow / low vibrations of) isolation, alienation and cold detachment in our social environment, and:
* To let the Heart guide us to find our way HOME
(the North Node will move into CANCER, from Nov 16 on).

The two Partial SOLAR ECLIPSES in CANCER on July 12 and in LEO Aug 11 are ‘Seed Eclipses’ (as I call it), since the New Moon is both times close to the Lunar North Node, presently in early LEO.

Strong & loving LEO Heart radiance energizes us and others, and that starts with / comes from self nurturance, care, and belonging (CANCER). New seeds are being planted in this. ❤ 
Let’s love & embrace ourselves and others from the Heart – maybe literally through a hug, or embrace them and the ‘situation’ energetically.

 

The Super New Moon / PSE at 20°41′ CANCER will be exactly opposite PLUTO retro, presently at 20°00(!) CAP, and LILITH in CAP:
At Home in This Changing World.

The New Moon comes with the CAN – CAP opposition axis, since PLUTO is sitting right across SUN and MOON, and LILITH is nearby, end of CAP, reaching over into early AQ (see chart below).

It’s almost like a Full Moon this way, since both sides of the spectrum are activated, however: not via bright illumination as in a Full Moon, reflecting the sunlight.

Rather in ‘multiple darkness’:
The invisible New Moon is a seed in the dark, and PLUTO is dark & transformational – often darkness and shadow, even to an extreme, are the most effective catalysts for deep change – PLUTO’s message / function.
Both the SUN and MOON oppose PLUTO before the New Moon – in the ‘Dark Moon’ phase, plus: PLUTO is presently retro.

I.o.w., that old and inner ‘PLUTO business’ is being released with the dark MOON – before we step into the new cycle (nice sequence).

 

Let’s hear a bit about PLUTO again – just to acknowledge what it IS and how it’s serving its purpose:

PLUTO in CAP (since 2008 / 2009, and still going on until 2023; we’re 2/3 into it) represents the Old World-in-Change, as in: societal, political, business & career structures, and:
How these man-made (infra)structures affect the cycles of Nature and the structures of the Earth.
 

A neutral expression of CAP (which also traditionally rules farming):
Working with the Earth and Seasonal Cycles.

Mostly, we’ve seen  and can’t ignore anymore how the exponentially disrespectful, excessive, extreme, and abusive exploitation of resources and disposal of ‘waste’ is destroying the Earth that humanity and the intricate web of Nature depend upon.
I don’t believe in the Planet MARS / ‘terraforming’ / ‘farming out’ cop-out, btw – what a poor testimony to humanity’s failure of Earth stewardship!

How does the almost over-powering CAP shadow FEEL?
We need to sit with our grieving.

 

LILITH end of CAP ahead of PLUTO (SUN and MOON oppose ‘her’ after the New MOON – that’s significant!) shows us our True Nature – which is resourceful and an ever renewable resource that fuels Deep Transformation from within.
Being IN Nature of course helps…

HOW can that look like? 

  • How do we start ‘at Home’ and in the Heart? 
  • How can we be at Home (CAN) in this Changing World (PLUTO in CAP)?
  • How can we, rather than resisting the Change, be co-creative (CAN / LEO) in integrity (CAP), and collaborate innovatively and co-creatively in a community ( AQ) that IS the Change (PLUTO)?
  • Check in how you FEEL about lamenting the change, being frustrated at ‘the powers’, destructive and irresponsible forces, yet stuck and immobilized?
    It might have to do with unprocessed grief and anger.
  • What could engaging in Creative Change look like?
  • Business (CAP) from Home  / Home-on-the-back (CAN) which has become so popular lately can make good sense, as long as it saves resources (hmmm, the global home internet nomad-ism….!), isn’t isolating (we ARE social animals!), and contributes in a co-creative community.

With the position of PLUTO facing the Super New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse at exactly 20°00′(!) CAP I couldn’t not find the SABIAN SYMBOL for this degree – and indeed, very apropos:

“CAPRICORN 20°: A HIDDEN CHOIR IS SINGING DURING A RELIGIOUS SERVICE.

Gospel Choir – Pixabay PD graphic

KEYNOTE: 
The fulfillment of the individual’s creative function through his participation in a group performance consecrated to a transcendent realization of unity.

In great cathedrals and other religious edifices the choir is normally hidden behind the altar or above the nave. It symbolizes thus more perfectly the supernal harmony of “heaven” — or the music of the spheres.

The ideal of social participation is exalted to its highest manifestation, for the choir also represents the multifaceted and polyphonic unity of the community in its transcendent state of perfect harmony.
Within this harmony the individual who has overcome his egocentric separativeness and developed his higher consciousness finds fulfillment in super-personal togetherness.

This is the fifth and last symbol of this fifty-eighth sequence. It presents us with the purest form of group-harmony, the most basic yet most difficult fulfillment of the social state.
At the level of the individual person this “hidden choir” would refer to the polyphonic integration of all faculties in their most spiritual manifestations: The ideal of PLENITUDE of being.”

I love how this symbol adds the spiritual and AQ communal dimension – as LILITH does.

 

Voila, here IS…

The chart for the CANCER Super New Moon / PSE on JULY 12 (exact at 7:48 pm PDT).

In Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia / New Zealand it’ll be JULY 13. 

 

Can you see the strong axis from late CAN (SUN and MOON) / early LEO (NN, and MERCURY retro coming in soon) to CAP (SATURN retro, PLUTO retro, LILITH, SN / MARS retro)?

Clearly calling us to bridge ‘both worlds’:
The private and the public, personal needs and ‘outer’ purpose and contribution, and to start with a new quality of family and at-home ness that is being seeded now. 

 

Another striking aspect that the chart shows:
All the CAP / early AQ Planets and Astro Archetypes (except LILITH) are presently RETRO!

We’re processing the ‘old world’ that’s no more valid (for better or worse) yet overcompensates / desperately tries to stay established:
Old authority (SATURN), old powers & control (PLUTO), old societies (SN in AQ), old desires, drives, competitiveness, aggression / old masculine / warrior group energy (MARS in AQ).

 

Voyager Tarot card III – Empress. Photo & Crystal Activation by Melanie

 

The Great Mother (CANCER Super New MOON), rather than resisting (SATURN), trying to change / control (PLUTO), alienating (AQ), and fighting (MARS), embraces what / who shows up, with the transformational power (PLUTO), wisdom & integrity (SATURN), and fierce energy (MARS) of LOVE.

 

Blessings for Goddess Power transforming the World!
