SAG New Moon (Nov 26) – Cultivating the Sparks of Light

25 Nov

Dear Cosmic Friend & Astro News Reader,

The early SAG NEW MOON is coming tomorrow Nov 26 – yayyy! 

She ignites our Heart Light with Phoenix Fire that turns into Solstice Light!
This lunar phase reaches exactly to Christmas – the next New Moon will be the Partial Solar Eclipse(!) in early CAP on Dec 25!

 

The SAG New Moon catalyzes VENUS’s (today Nov 25) and even JUPITER’s (Dec 2) ‘ascent’ into CAP!

Plus, the New Moon brings  NEPTUNE’s turnaround in mid-PISCES from retro (since June 21) to direct on Wed Nov 27!
This is quite the NEPTUNE week…
We may feel overwhelmed, drained, depleted, or like turning to escapes.
Lifting (SAG) the vibe
would be to truly relax, and find true connection from within, and with others where things flow… notice: That actually gives you energy! 
Also very Neptunian Medicine:
Music, dance, Yoga, meditation (not just as a temporary relief / escape but as a practice that clears and connects).

 

When it comes to SCO, it’s true, we’re still burning off a LOT, esp. in the mental-emotional realm – MERCURY in SCO is JUST today coming out of its post-retro ‘storm’, and phases out in its post-retro ‘shadow’ by Dec 7 (yep, still some patience please!) by Dec 7, before finally, finally entering SAG on Dec 9.
And lots of energetics of hidden, repressed anger and frustration round power issues are also processing and burning off, with MARS in SCO (well, that one’s on until Jan 3). Move it, move it, Babes!
Good thing is: This phase has gotten us to the bottom of things, from where real change is possible.

If you’ve been in an emotional crisis lately, where a LOT of shadowy stuff came up that you didn’t even feel comfortable to share, welcome to the club!
Crisis stirs things up, ideally moves it out of the system, and precedes new growth and evolution. 
The time is ripe.
And the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon points to help showing up along the way.

 

We’re also (since MARS entered SCO on Nov 18) in another phase (as extensively in the Summer) without Planets in the AIR Element, until Dec 19 when VENUS enters AQ.
Which can have effects of feeling stifled, claustrophobic, out of touch with ideas and communication, and when they happen it’s not easy to be detached and objective.
On the other hand, it’s an opportunity to tap into and practice no-Mind / emptiness of the Mind, and experience stillness within, rather than having the inner commentator involved, and being engaged in chatter, inside and out.

 

Voila, here’s the

‘Birth Chart’ of the SAG New Moon:

Early SAG where the New Moon will be (4º 02′) has an ARIES undertone (according to a real cool decanates system that helps describe sub-vibes of areas in the Zodiac – I might teach it again in the New Year – let me know if you’re interested!).
Freshness & Freedom is the flavour.

Spoke with two friends individually today, and we all voiced how we welcome the Rising Energy with the New Moon.

She ignites a Spark of Heart Fire that guides and carries us through the darkness of the longest nights. SAG deeply trusts and knows: The Light will return, and walks with anticipation and gratitude.

Baby Blessings are bestowed with the New Moon.

OH, and what a New Moon Blessing for the Thanksgiving week!

 

Let’s see what Gifts are offered by the 

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon 

The New MOON will be at 4º 02′ SAG.

4º SAG says:

Learning to Walk – Pixabay Photo by Caleb Oquendo

“A LITTLE CHILD LEARNING TO WALK WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF HIS PARENTS.

KEYNOTE: The natural assistance of superior powers during crises of growth.

At an early stage in its development, every living organism must make an attempt to overcome the power of gravitation, or rather to learn to use it in order to fulfill the purpose of its life. This implies passing through a critical state of growth — growth in freedom, potency and individuality, inasmuch as “walking” always symbolizes self-induced progress. In such a crisis the individual is not left alone. Some more evolved Power and Intelligence watches, encourages and gives examples to be followed.

As usual, this fourth stage symbol in the forty-ninth sequence gives a hint of technique. It presents a picture of the conditions under which a RESOLUTION OF CONFLICT can be ensured, whether at the organic, the personal or the super-personal level of unfoldment.”

 

What a well-fitting symbol – after SCORPIO crises and Martian conflicts – for the early SAG energy with ARIES undertone…! We came through this… a sense of RE-Birth is in the Air.
Baby Steps & Baby Blessings for walking forward-upward-onward again!

Growth (SAG) happens, after having perhaps fallen down / being pulled into some Scorpionic ditches – which yet showed us the bottom and core of things where we have been in self sabotage and given energy & power away (as in: Shadow Projection, Fear, Shame, Blame, you name it…). 
Not to say we ‘should have known better’ and ‘avoided those Scorpionic traps’. The process hopefully(!) served its purpose to strengthen us – an immunization.
If not quite yet – it’s all organic, not a linear check list – MERCURY now in post-retro ‘Shadow’ in SCO until early Dec, and MARS still in SCO until Jan 3 help us bravely move things through, with the guiding Light of the SAG SUN.

 

Love how the Sabian Symbol suggests, instinctively (SCO) trusting (SAG) in Higher Powers guiding and protecting us. We can experience its evidence through signs, and how we spontaneously feel in their presence (lighter, freer, inspired, uplifted, joyful?).
The body-mind-spirit is honest & direct.

 

Plus, I’d like to add:
Ask pure Source and Protective Guides like Angels for help too (no fancy invocation words, directly, simply in your own voice from the Heart). The SAG ‘arrow’ is also an intention, a vision, and a prayer.
A sign for their pure vibration is that they don’t interfere with free will. They respond to being asked and invoked.

The New Moon in early SAG comes in a beautiful Fire / Spirit Trine with CHIRON (prominent in December!) in early ARIES – Healing & Teaching Medicine lays in stepping out newly-authentically (ARIES) and stepping forward (SAG) on the Path to the Light.

The evidence of Higher and Soul Powers will come through ever more strongly as we’re approaching the epic SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12 – which also marks the Old Empire Expiring.
Both Planets already approach their union (in a 37-38 year cycle) – as seen in the chart.
Hence this SAG New Moon, and even more so the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse on Christmas Day(!), catalyzes that epic event to help us step up (CAP) into embodying our Soul Power.

 

VENUS has JUST today Nov 25 moved over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP
We’re attracted to – and maybe have been waiting for a loong time – for what’s rock-solid, mature, and timeless. JUPITER follows in a week, on Dec 2! To inspire us for Building for the Highest Good.

Literally in relationships and with any partnership in compatibility, once a grounded “That’s IT” sense is established the energy builds, and together / in synergy something solid & purposeful can be built that’s a model for others too.
Clearly a great ‘resource’ to make the World a Better Place.

In the New Moon chart, you can see both in close union wrapping round the Integrity Point – SAG-to-CAP cusp. Love for, and Attraction from Integrity is clearly catalyzed by the SAG New Moon!

 

New Seeds of Love & Growth are planted – overseen by Higher Powers.
All the Earthy CAP energy helps us with being cultivators of / in Integrity.

Blessings for Cultivating and Walking with the Sparks of Light! ♐️

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!

 

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

VENUS over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP (Nov 25 – Dec 19) – Timeless & Rock-Solid Love!

20 Nov

Dear Astro Friend,

All about VENUS…

Heart Chakra Yantra – Sound: Yang

YES – in the Root-to-Crown / Saturn-to-Sun Chakra Journey, VENUS’s association is with the HEART Chakra.  

 

In her last days in uplifting SAG this year, on Nov 24, VENUS will meet big Mentor JUPITER – in the Galactic Centre – the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy!

 

What a ‘grand finale’ in SAG!
Feeling it already? 
An initiation into celebrating creative Goddess energy, and to be BIG and generous with our loving, magnetic Heart!

The day after, VENUS crosses over the Winter Solstice cusp from SAG to CAP which I call the Integrity Point, where she helps us become a magnet for attracting what’s ‘real’, lasting, timeless, and in integrity / what really works for us.
Rock Solid Love.

 

In the meantime / simultaneously it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game (we attract matches & mirrors) for where we’re at, with our self value, self honouring, and self love.
Notice what you attract into your ‘field’, and what it says about you, how you’re the perfect match for it – from the perspective of the status quo / from what you’re ‘sending out’.


An ‘inventory’ / assessment time, with VENUS in CAP before Winter SoUlstice:

 

  • What works really well, and generates balancing reciprocity (remember, VENUS rules LIBRA) and joy (yes, VENUS also rules TAURUS)? 

 

  • Where is a new negotiation or are boundaries needed, to honour yourself and live & love in mature & mutual respect? 

 

  • Maybe, ‘simply’ walking away from situations where people won’t / can’t give you loving appreciation, and where you’ve been putting up with what doesn’t honour you is ‘walking your talk’ and the wisest thing to do.

 

I.o.w., don’t work too hard (a CAP thing – low vibe CAP can turn into a Martyr).  

SATURN these years in its natural CAP energy (for almost 2 years now, and 1 more to come) couldn’t agree more:
Don’t do it the hard way, i.o.w., work too hard to to ‘receive / earn Love’ 
(which could certainly come up this month, as an old conditioning), rather (a la reformed VENUS / SATURN duo):
Do it the Heart Way!

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Dec 11 (on the day of the next Full Moon!), we  might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, while finding closure of an old pattern or two – in the area of life related to CAPRICORN in our charts.

The unfathomably deep VENUS – PLUTO connection (on Friday Dec 13!) integrates VENUS’s transit in CAP – while ushering in LOTS of CAP energy this early Winter, surrounding the upcoming top transit everybody’s talking about:

The SATURN – PLUTO conjunction in CAP on Jan 12, 2020!

… which closes a 38-year cycle of societal structural breakdown, and brings evidence for purging of the CAP shadow, and rebuilding from the core & basics. The Old Empire expires.

Planet ‘Dates’ with VENUS in CAP (Nov 25 – Dec 19):

 

NOV 26 – Day of the New Moon in SAG
VENUS in CAP in square with CHIRON retro in ARIES
Impulses for the new and authentic-NOW can clash with traditionalist ‘leave it as it is’ attachments. Reconcile the Medicine of Innocence with Maturity & Experience.  

 

NOV 28
VENUS (and the MOON) in CAP in Earth Trine with URANUS retro in TAU.
How about a yummy meal with grandma’s recipe? And how about inviting a surprise guest for dinner?
Or sponsoring dinner to those who lack the resources we have?
Low Income Donation Day on NOV 29 – All proceeds go to Christmas meals @ Our Place.
 

 

DEC 2
JUPITER follows VENUS, and also enters CAP (Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 19, 2020).
Working with Energy Optimally & for the Highest Good.
Check out the customized Astro Parlour on Dec 2 where we invoke the Best of JUPITER in CAP and align with it!
 

 

DEC 3
VENUS in CAP sextiles MARS in SCO.
Rock solid love invites us to bravely, fiercely go deeper.  

 

DEC 4
VENUS in CAP conj. the Lunar South Node.
Love doesn’t have to be earned (karmic? conditioned? old school?).
I.o.w., don’t work hard to be loved, accepted, respected, esp. by those who don’t ‘get you’, and turn to those who warmly welcome you.

In any case: Rather than ‘doing it the hard way’ let’s stay on the Heart Way. So much easier…
 

 

DEC 8
VENUS in CAP in sextile with stationary NEPTUNE (her ‘higher octave’ Archetype) in PISCES.
There are relationships and values that never grow old.
And there’s unconditional connectedness.
 

 

DEC 11 – Day before the Full MOON in GEM – SAG
VENUS in CAP meets ringed SATURN.
What (or whom?) are you ready to commit to, from your Heart, and because it’s Time?
And what’s done and complete / matured out of (even though you used to love it)? Acknowledge its purpose, and wrap it up with Love. A great day for a ceremony, either way.

By then, VENUS, JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO are all in CAP. 
SUN & MERCURY to join at Solstice / NY.  

 

Friday DEC 13 – VENUS / MOON Day (hijacked & perverted into a ‘bad luck day’)
VENUS in CAP meets ‘deep dark’ PLUTO while the MOON will be in her CANCER abode.
You might feel you’re the one choosing, yet something deeper and ‘older’ calls you. Power to Love.
And never mind what those who used to be in power & authority ‘up there’ told you. That era / empire expires now.

What a grand finale for VENUS in CAP (until DEC 19)!  

 

 

VENUS 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 be magnetic and attract – esp if you come from a rock-solid foundation.

…after a perhaps frustrating yet effective ‘clearing’ and phase of closures with SATURN in CAP over the last 2 years.
We really have matured so much in our CAP Houses since Dec 2017.  

 

1st House 
Your Presence and Sense of Self

Mature, calm, reliable, resourceful & resilient. No energy waste.
You’re a magnet as you ARE (meaning: unconditionally, no (more) need to prove anything). Love yourself fully. And: Always time for Love!
 

 

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

Building on solid ground is your thing.
A good time to acquire something of lasting / increasing value. What gives you true rock-solid security?
Time to appreciate what you already have, and attract through solidly standing in your values. Know your value/s and live by them – without judging others for not living up to them. And don’t you love yourself more as you mature? (Ha, reminds me of wine & cheese…).
 

 

3rd House 
Your Environment & Relatives

SO conservative and judgmental… or: traditional and always there for one another, old fashioned / timeless reliability.
Love & appreciate what has grown better with time between you and them. Live and let live. Let them know how you love them, in simple terms.
 

 

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?
What keeps attracting you back to your roots? A dharma purpose awaiting you there? How can you love the strength of the ancestors, feel 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 (a matter of permission?).
Create something important – one step / day at a time. Instead of being held back by judgment, turn to the wisdom of experience, and infuse your creativity with mature ‘grandma love’. And: Love your children as they mature and appreciate every ‘season’ with them.  

 

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

Taking on something serious & responsible?
Love yourself and the service you offer in a calm, knowing, experienced way. As you might be drawn to introduce a healthy routine that requires commitment don’t be too hard on yourself, and appreciate the journey as much as the ‘progress’.
A good time to attract people & projects you can be in service to, in a blend of Love & Challenge.  

 

7th House 
Your Partners & Significant Others

Mature and reliable ones may apply.
Enough frustrations, hardship, rejections, NO’s on their or your side. Done with old patterns.
How has SATURN in CAP been your (at times perhaps tough) relationship coach? Love doesn’t equate / require work. Let VENUS show you…
 

 

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

Serious processes you’ve been through – in Life and esp. in the last years.
A time to attract those who ‘get you’. Love yourself through hardship. Don’t take too much on for others – you know that ‘loving’ guilty feeling… But hey, be there for them with your time, resources, and love as it’s in integrity.
 

 

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

You don’t take those lightly.
Have more serious lessons-into-wisdom have shown up on your Path in the last 2 years? Which people,  places, and purpose are you attracted to now, with all your experience under your belt?
 

 

10th House 
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

You challenge yourself, don’t you?!
Hope you haven’t been held back by fear and performance anxiety in the last years, or judged (yourself) unfairly. The public loves you, esp. these weeks. Yes, because you lead by example and have accomplished something admirable. But also just because.
Be out there where you attract 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.
 

 

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 Love and share it 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.

VENUS over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP (Feb 3 – March 1) – Timeless & Rock-Solid Love!

2 Feb

Dear Astro Friend,

Whether you discovered this Blog just recently, or been tuning in for years… 
I just went back, and saw it started with the Equinox / LIBRA New Moon in Sept 2014 – ruled by VENUS.

This one’s about VENUS…
…who has come a long way recently!
After the VENUS-retro phase last Fall, where ‘she’ once again activated the Inner Goddess, ‘she’ crossed from transformational SCO over the ‘Phoenix Point’, and rose – as the ‘Morning Star’ in SAG on JAN 3, where she helped us attract lots of opportunities from the Heart and from Gratitude, Generosity, Self-Value, and Abundance – All attributes of LOVE.

In uplifting SAG, VENUS met big Mentor JUPITER on JAN 22 – right after the Total LUNAR Eclipse Full MOON in CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ.
What an initiation into celebrating the creative & strong Lunar Mother Goddess and to be BIG with our loving, magnetic Heart!

YES – in the Root-to-Crown / Saturn-to-Sun Chakra Journey, VENUS’s association is with the HEART Chakra.

 

Now, VENUS crosses over the Winter Solstice cusp from SAG to CAP, a.k.a. (well, I call it) the Integrity Point, and becomes / helps us become a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’, lasting, timeless, and in integrity / really works for us. Rock Solid Love.

In the meantime / simultaneously it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game (we attract matches & mirrors) for where we’re at, with our self value, self honouring, and self love.
You might want to notice what you attract into your ‘field’, and what it says about you, how you’re the perfect match for it – from the perspective of the status quo / from what you ‘sent out’.


An ‘inventory’ / assessment time, with VENUS in CAP this month:

  • What works really well, and generates balancing reciprocity (remember, VENUS rules LIBRA) and joy (yes, VENUS also rules TAURUS)?
  • Where is a new negotiation or are boundaries needed, to honour yourself and live in mutual mature respect?
  • Maybe, ‘simply’ walking away from situations that never give you the loving appreciation you’re looking for is ‘walking your talk’ and the wisest thing to do.


I.o.w., don’t work too hard (a CAP thing – CAP can turn into a Martyr).  

SATURN in CAP (for more than a year now) couldn’t agree more:
Don’t do it the hard way, i.o.w., work too hard to to ‘receive / earn Love’ 
(which could as an old conditioning certainly come up this month), rather (the reformed VENUS / SATURN duo): Do it the Heart Way!

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Feb 18 (just the day before the Full Moon) we  might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, and find closure of an old pattern – in the area of life related to mid-CAP in our charts.

And then, the unfathomably deep VENUS – PLUTO, and the old and karmic VENUS – South Node connections in CAP this month, followed by a surprise / paradigm shifting and liberating VENUS square URANUS at the very end of the Love Story….

Planet ‘Dates’ with VENUS in CAP (Feb 3 – March 1):

Not as many alignments from VENUS in CAP to other Planets as from when she was in SAG.
Goes with CAP’s tendency to like it simple “all you need”.
I added the aspects TO VENUS from the MOON though, to give a sense of the ‘flavour’ on those days when they engage with each other…:


FEB 5 / 6
The waxing MOON in PI in sextile VENUS in CAP.
Feeling timelessly connected – a Love that never grows old.

 

FEB 8
The waxing MOON in AR square VENUS in CAP.
Impulses for the new and authentic-NOW can clash with traditionalist ‘leave it as it is’ attachments.
Reconcile Innocence with Experience.

 

FEB 11
The waxing MOON in TAU in Earth Trine with VENUS in CAP.
How about a yummy meal with grandma’s recipe?

 

FEB 16
The waxing MOON in CAN opposite VENUS in CAP.
Reconciling the need to keep it cozy, and the love to challenge yourself / get work done? Well, it’s Saturday…

 

FEB 17 – last day of the SUN in AQ, and with the MOON in LEO
VENUS in CAP sextile (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE in PI.
A good day for a charitable fundraiser, a choir concert, a benefit performance…

 

FEB 18 – Day before the Full MOON.
VENUS in CAP meets ringed SATURN.
What are you ready to commit to, from your heart, and because it’s time?
And what’s done and complete (even though you used to love it)?

 

FEB 22
The waning MOON in LI squares VENUS in CAP.
VENUS in CAP meets ‘deep dark’ PLUTO.
You might feel you’re still on the fence, yet something deeper and ‘older’ calls you.

 

FEB 24
VENUS in CAP conj. the Lunar South Node.
Love doesn’t have to be earned (karmic? conditioned? old school?). I.o.w., don’t work hard to be loved, accepted, respected, esp. by those who don’t ‘get you’, and turn to those who warmly welcome you.
In any case: Rather than ‘doing it the hard way’ let’s stay on the Heart Way. So much easier…

 

FEB 25
The waning MOON in SCO sextile VENUS in CAP.
Some processing of deep emotional layers helps with finding your loving ground.

 

MARCH 1
VENUS at the very end of CAP squares URANUS at the very end of ARIES.
VENUS enters (URANUS ruled) AQ the same day, and is met by the MOON there on MARCH 2.
Uhhh, what a conclusion of her CAP visit! Free at last! 
Where does Love set you free?
Paradigm shifts, and loving connections between human equals, beyond time, age, status are calling.

 

 

VENUS in CAPRICORN in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in CAP and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where CAP is in your birth (and local) chart/s to be a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’ and in integrity / really works for YOU, while ‘in the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror for where you’re at, with your self value and self love.

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Feb 18, the day before the Full Moon you might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, and / or find closure to an old and too hard way of being – in the area of life related to mid-CAP in your chart.

And after the encounter with the ‘Ringed One’, VENUS meets PLUTO and the South Node in CAP on Feb 22 – 24, connecting with deep, old, soulful Love – that may move mountains, or at least melt walls… while releasing old ways of ‘loving’.

 

VENUS – approaching SATURN / PLUTO / Lunar South Node, now transiting in your… house relating to…:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

SERVICES

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!

Group of SEVEN in CAPRICORN – into the NEW MOON (Jan 16 / 17): Integrity from the Ground UP

14 Jan

Hey, dear Astro~News Friends,

Seriously?
SEVEN Celestial Bodies now in CAPRICORN?


Yep, that’s it – as much as it gets – pretty much until 2020.
Who are the ‘Players’?
SUN (the ‘season’, until Jan 19 / 20), MOON (since today Jan 14, until just after the CAP New Moon on Jan 16 / 17), MERCURY (Jan 10 – 31), VENUS (Dec 24 – Jan 17), LILITH (Nov 8, 2017 – Aug 5, 2018), SATURN (Dec 19 / 20, 2017 – Dec 17, 2020), and PLUTO (2008 /09 – 2023 / 24)!

Looks like a Big Call for Integrity from the Ground-UP.

How has your New Year started?
Maybe still with a lots of residual energy from 2017?
Maybe with clearing some of the ‘Holiday effects’?
You’re not alone.

Yes, it’s true, the SuperSuper FULL MOON in CAN / CAP aligned so beautifully with the Gregorian New Year of January 1. 
However, Full Moon energy isn’t about Newness but about ‘Fruition’ – esp. this one:
A Super build-up of the weeks round Christmas, and perhaps of the whole year 2017 – which has taken so many of us, personally, in relationships, as nations (the U.S.), countries (catastrophes!) through the ‘fire’ / ‘storm’.

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

The CANCER Full Moon belly was such a womb energy.
The waning phase over the last 2 weeks, after such a big time build-up, and with the help of the PLUTO in CAP ‘midwife’, has ‘delivered’ deep stuff through the ‘birth canal’ of transformation. It’s been quite the purge too, with PLUTO ‘in charge’. 

Since PLUTO is the key & core ‘Player’ and in CAP the longest (2008 – 2024), pointing to the deeper evolution that’s going on on Planet Earth and in us internally.
So, what’s the effect of each other planetary body passing PLUTO?

 

So let’s first do an Astro Inventory (very Capricornian anyway) about the Planetary Players and their Transformation through PLUTO.

VENUS and the SUN in CAP passed PLUTO on Jan 9, and just 15 hrs before the New Moon, on Jan 16, the CAP MOON will pass PLUTO too. 
It’s an initiation process with PLUTO in CAP.
And yep, it gets intense as / so that it changes…

While (because?) the Shadow and all sort of ‘old gunk’ gets cleared and purified (PLUTO), the Best of these Inner Archetypes in their Integrity (CAP) can come out:

SUN – Spirit, Consciousness, Vital Energy:

  • What does it takes for your energy to operate best?
  • What’s ‘counterproductive’ and (hopefully) on the way out?
  • What brings you energy?
  • What brings you closer to Essence?

VENUS – Attraction, Magnetism, Reflection in Relationships:

  • Do you attract / do they show you your Best, or your Shadow?
  • How can you bring Love, the Big Transformer, into the picture?

MOON – Sensitivity, Somatic Cycles, Emotions, Needs:

  • How do you honour (CAP) our emotions and needs?
  • How do you align with the energy of the month, nurture (MOON) and sustain (CAP) yourself?
  • It is a low energy before / round the New Moon – maybe you need lots of Rest & Regeneration…?
  • The one New Moon in CAP of the year: The world seems to resonate with, or at least emotionally reflect your CAP themes (like: need for integrity, simplicity, building a good foundation, being in tune with the Spirit of the Time / Zeitgeist, working with Nature – rather than against it….).
  • PLUTO as an ‘Initiation Chamber’ for the NEW MOON (with VENUS) helps us get aligned with what truly, simply, essentially matters, and ‘works best’.
    Call it Being as Nature, call it the The Power of Love.

MERCURY  – Mind, Thought Forms, Communication:
MERCURY in CAP will pass PLUTO on Jan 24: 

  • Mental ‘clutter’ of the CAP kind (abusive / self abusive, judgmental, fear / control mechanisms…) can come ‘up and out’ to process.
  • Hidden agenda in govern-mental structures can come out (more? oh yeah…).
  • An excellent time to practice deep inquiry into the core of your being – and live from there, one step / breath / minute at a time.

The SUN, MERCURY, and VENUS pass PLUTO yearly, the MOON monthly.
Yet, nowadays / now-a-years, there’s more going on in CAP where PLUTO sits:

LILITH – ‘Wild Woman’, actually: Being in our True ‘Wild Nature’.
LILITH is now also in CAP (until Aug 2018), and will pass PLUTO in mid-May (only every 10 years). The themes are already building up:

  • Being as-Nature is so simple. We don’t need all the ‘stuff’ (materialism, status symbols…) that’s been ‘sold’ to us by those who benefit from the consumer society and ‘ego system’.
  • Less is more is empowering. Less to buy / more to create / grow, re-purpose, up-cycle, share brings more Life and Soul into the World.
  • Rather than resisting / protesting against authorities (and thereby feeding them energy and still being the ‘adolescent’), how about letting the Inner Adult and Mature Wise One (CAP) step up and coach us into a transformation from within which can spread like wildfire?!

MARS – Warrior: Assertion. MARS is in CAP exalted (strongest sign for MARS): Strength, Stamina, Endurance, Persistence, Perseverance.
MARS will be in CAP this year too, March 17 to May 15, and again (due to retro) Aug 15 to Sept 10).
MARS will pass PLUTO (every about 2 years) on Apr 26 – while PLUTO will be stationary (going retro on Apr 22). Quite the intense transit.

  • When we need to get through things we also have energy and resources (we don’t have to ‘do it alone’) that are required, step by step.
  • An excellent time for a big project that requires perseverance, and builds character.

Eventually in 2020, SATURN and JUPITER, both in CAP (SATURN just entered, JUPITER in 2020), will pass PLUTO:
Deep & huge societal / structural / economic ‘make-over’.

The energy is building towards this, esp. with SATURN now in CAP. Being in our own mastery, authority and responsibility, having good boundaries, and not taking too much on – all this helps moving things forward to where evolution goes anyway.
Check out my SATURN into CAP blog post from Dec 16!

I’d say the NEW YEAR energetically only begins with the CAPRICORN NEW MOON, this coming week. 
The New Moon will be exactly on Tue Jan 16 at 6:17 pm PST / Wed Jan 17 at 2:17 am GMT.
Into the NEW YEAR, from the Ground UP!

 

Here’s the CAPRICORN NEW MOON Chart:

 

The NEW MOON will be exactly on TUE JAN 16 at 6:17 pm PST / Wed Jan 17 at 2:17 am GMT.

Yep, see? 
The Group of SEVEN in CAP?!

VENUS is about to leave CAP for AQ the day after the New Moon Work Party, i.o.w., on Jan 17.
And so does the SUN, on Jan 19.

That’s the ‘Prometheus Point’ a.k.a. Community Building Point as I like to call the CAP – AQ cusp.
I.o.w., how can our energy and consciousness (SUN) go to the next level, from the CAP world of Leading from Integrity to attracting (VENUS), cooperating, and Co-creating in Community (AQ)?
A few things to keep in mind:

  • We are magnets (VENUS) for the energy we give off.
    Our habits create patterns and structures that build up (CAP).
     
  • How does life and how do relationships that you attract reflect back what you are, and engage in? 
  • How committed are you to taking responsibility (SATURN) for your relationship attractions (VENUS), and to recognizing when they are complete, and the lessons learned (SATURN)? 
  • How can you transform everything you attract into Love (PLUTO – VENUS), and see its Higher / Deeper Purpose (PLUTO in CAP)? 
  • Big Things require Cooperation (AQ) of good and competent people (CAP) who are complementary (VENUS).
    What are communities you are engaging in more now?

The main tension / stress / action inducing aspect of the CAP NEW MOON is a square from the NEW MOON and VENUS to URANUS in late ARIES.
It was already exact for the SUN and VENUS last weekend (Jan 13 / 14), and for the MOON it will be exact on the 16th.


So yeah, more shocks and awe in relation to govern-mentals, and others in responsible positions acting a wee bit, or very, cuckoo?
Could well be. Could we have imagined a year ago how much public craziness can be out and up there???
And, a more constructive question: 
Can the energy be expressed in a better way? That’s always my notion with understanding the astrological, archetypal messages in their symbolism and language….

Yay, sure, if we emancipate (URANUS) ourselves more from ‘the big boss/es’ (CAP), are innovative (UR in AR), and in self sufficient authority (CAP).
The Times they are a-changing, says PLUTO and now also SATURN in CAPRICORN.

Right NOW, the square can also be expressed by ‘giving birth’ to experimenting (UR in AR) with new, more productive, and sustaining (CAP) ways of Being and Living. Let’s be creative!

 

Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt. The Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener is related to the Planet URANUS! And VENUS and the SUN will cross the ‘Prometheus Point’ on Jan 17 / 19. So I better bring that ‘golden boy’ into the picture!

By the way, have you noticed?
We’re in a Retro Free Zone NOW!

Since URANUS went direct (technically on Jan 2, more noticeable now, as it’s coming into gear), until March 8 when JUPITER goes retro – well, let’s say, because of the stationary phase, until end of Feb!
What’s that good for (asks the CAP voice, ha-ha)?

Well, things move forward now, and can manifest more easily.
A student asked me in an Astrology course meeting last week, “Does that mean things go well now?”
Good point. And important to clarify:
Forward-motion doesn’t necessarily mean things go ‘well’. When the ‘catalyst’ planets URANUS, NEPTUNE, and PLUTO show up, things can get ‘messed up’, esp. when we act ‘against the cosmic grain’, yet it leads to much needed change.
That’s why it’s good to be aware of what these archetypal energies that the planets represent ‘want’, and how to be ‘on better terms’ with them…

For example:
URANUS in ARIES says: Just try it out, and see what happens. There are no mistakes, showing up, esp. for yourself is what matters. CAP makes sure it all stays ethical.

In the forward course of things now, whatever has been held you back, can you see the deeper dynamics of it (JUPITER in SCO)?

Can you take even just baby goat steps (CAP Planets and New Moon), and try out a new and perhaps surprising approach (URANUS in ARIES)?

 

Arunachala, Southern India (Tamil Nadu). The Sacred Mountain to Shiva the Transformer – related to the PLUTO Archetype.

Are you on Your Transformational Mountain, into (Promethean) Liberation (URANUS in ARIES) from what’s weighing and wearing you down (too much CAPRICORN, experienced as burdensome and depressing)?
And into Liberation, to be the Authentic YOU?!

 

Much Love for and with it ALL!

VENUS enters CAP (Dec 24/25 – Jan 17): A Love That Lasts…

24 Dec

Love and Gratitude for the ground we stand on! 

Over Christmas, it’s VENUS’s term, to settle from her Sagittarian running around and frolic….

To cross the ‘Integrity Point’, join the CAP crew of the SUN, SATURN, LILITH, and PLUTO, and turn rock-steady. 

Time to appreciate and enjoy the wintry calm, traditions of old, and lasting relationships with family and friends.

Quality over quantity, says VENUS in CAP.
Simple pleasures and timeless beauty attract.

And relationships benefit from / require maturity.

 

Also a good time to activate business and career relevant relationships, to provide and build something significant that the world and this time needs.

CAP is happiest when on purpose…!

 

 

Mountain Joy in Switzerland

VENUS will make a few contacts with the CAP Planets during ‘her’ residence there:

DEC 25: VENUS meets SATURN.
Christmas engagement anyone? Rock-solid commitments favoured – when in Integrity.

VENUS, freshly in CAP, passes good ole SATURN yesterday – yep, Christmas Day.
The Ringed One…
In a Ring of out-of-Integrity / outgrown sugar coated obligations, expectations, obli-gifts, you name it….?
More noticeable this year, as SATURN just entered CAP to give us (3 years of) reality checks that might appear harsh and cold but also show where ‘been there / done that land’ is, and where we stand.
In Family Constellation practice, what comes up sometimes as a Medicine when we’ve burdened ourselves with too much of other people’s (esp. family and even unknown ancestors) stuff that we still carry:
We only take the Love, and give everything else back with Love – to them, to the Universe, to where it can be recycled back into… L.O.V.E.

So, here we go, VENUS – SATURN Holy Days. 
Only Love is Real.
And sometimes we have to say NO to what’s dressed-up as Love, to connect with, and commit to (yay, Ringed One!) LOVE that IS. 

DEC 29: VENUS meets LILITH.
So yeah, relationships gotta be in intrinsic Integrity (not based on ‘shoulds’ or obligations). LILITH sanctions the simple & good, and gets you out of everything else.

JAN 8: VENUS meets the SUN.
Lasting quality rocks. Go for best.

JAN 9: SUN / VENUS / PLUTO Union in CAP.
Whoa – serious deep Soul Union material.
What’s LOVE in its core?
Also an excellent time to offer something life changing to the world (can be quite simple) – because you can.

 

Blessings for the Holiday Season – renewed traditions, and new traditions-in-Integrity rock!

Melanie
