jan 11th—sun inconjunct jupiter

On January 11th, the Capricorn Sun will quincunx Jupiter Rx in Leo. This is the first of three interactions during their I/O/Q cycle of 2015.

Jupiter will ingress to Virgo (August 11th) before the Sun gets another chance to pick up Leonine energy for Capricorn/Aquarius/Pisces.

Crunch time, folks.

Kate-Greenaway-Childrens-Illustrations-009So, what does Leo have to offer Capricorn?

The Lion can teach the Goat to relax.

Instead of operating in a near constant state of exactitude, don’t take yourself so seriously.

Force yourself if you have to.

Remember, oftentimes, inconjuncts require elbow grease!

All work and no play . . .

It is that simple.

Pinpoint your Capricorn house and you will know precisely where to begin.

full moon by midnight—jan 5th

Our first Full Moon of the new year occurs early Monday at almost precisely midnight EST.

4.2.7The preceding Sunday is packed with astrological vitality, making this Moon super-duper—so, let’s get started.

Venus and Mercury have both recently moved into Aquarius. They are now sextiling Saturn, new to Sagittarius. This adds plain good judgement and success to any plans made now—especially artistic or career-wise.

Saturday saw the Sun join Pluto at the 13º of Capricorn. They will remain intertwined for the duration of the Full Moon, while sextiling Pisces Chiron.

The Maverick adds fuel to the already volatile healing capabilities of Sol and the Lord of the Underworld, BUT with the gentleness and compassion only a Piscean planet (or asteroid) can provide.

As she moves into Cancer, Luna, herself, dances with Chiron in a free flowing trine. Water meets water to dissolve old scars and give fresh perspective.

Yes, Sunday night’s event could be a major point of catharsis for us, depending on the intentions set at the New Moon as well as individual house position—look to 12 to 14 degrees of the Cardinal signs.

As you know, the Full Moon occurs along the Capricorn/Cancer axis. Earth and Water. The Father and the Mother of the zodiac.

Themes of nurturing and protection will surface. Quite possibly old ghosts from childhood could arise—don’t forget Pluto is in the frey.

How do we provide for our inner child?

How do we protect those—people, ideas, projects—we have committed to nurture?

How are we building structures that nourish and shelter the children—metaphorical and otherwise—we have birthed and are seeing to maturation?

Do these structures allow for growth in all areas—physical, mental, spiritual, emotional? Or are they outdated, in need of overhaul?

As the natural rulers of the 4th and 10th Houses respectively, Cancer and Capricorn bring along fundamental questions of our place and security in the world. Issues of do or die.

Alright, and now to get to the meatiest part of this opposition.

starlight in hades—sun conjunct pluto—jan 3rd

This Sunday night’s Full Moon is a dewsy, ya’ll.

One major component is the Capricorn Sun’s conjunction with Pluto at 13º the day before. And, actually, we have been under this dynamic’s influence all week and it will continue into next week.

Two words—

Intense. Power.

Ok, first, I think it might prove wise to list a few mistakes you don’t want to make under this conjunction.

Vintage-Old-Book-Illustration-006Here goes . . .

  • petty arguments
  • power plays
  • emotional manipulation
  • compulsive ideation
  • obsessive need for control
  • ego-conflicts
  • ruthless negativity

Whew!

Now that the b.s. is outta the way, let’s get down to how this event could be magical.

So, yes, Sun/Pluto can portend a bout with megalomania, but it can also be one of the most intensely healing transits available.

If even for a few days, we have access to deep psychological insights and a profound spirit of determination is ours to utilize.  The lesson is one of letting go—no easy task for a lot of us.

This combination allows us to transform the self and the immediate environment. If there is any area that needs an overhaul, Sun/Pluto can perform miracles. Sol shines his light on all the decay Hades has brought to the surface then offers the resolve to deal with the awful mess.

Look to the Capricorn house (specifically 12º-14º) for specific clues to where your personal awareness capabilities will go off the charts.

Avoid the inclination to skew to the negative, and you’ll do just fine.

2014 christmas week review

Well, I sincerely hope everyone had a magnificent Holiday.

Vintage-Old-Book-Illustration-016The weather here in the panhandle coupled with the festivities prevented me from posting, so now I’m just gonna give a brief recap of the energies of last week.

Needless to say, the big story is Saturn’s ingress from Scorpio to Sagittarius on the 23rd.

Huge!!!

I will post separately about that later today.

But Saturn was, of course, not the only happenings in the Heavens.

the longest night—december 21st

Sunday, at approximately 6:05 PM EST, the Sun moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn, signaling the Winter Solstice.

Then, around 8:30 PM EST, Luna joins to exact their New Moon conjunction at 0º.

Arthur-Rackham-Illustration-042The shift from Autumn to Winter is conjoined with the pitch black point of the month, where intention barely begins to muster up its ultimate potential.

Quiet. Serene.

Since the Virgo Sun ingress this Summer, the New Moons  have fallen on or dangerously close to .

The purest of freshest starts.

Tomorrow’s event is no different.

Alright. So, first, I will discuss the high jinks of lovely Sagittarius/Capricorn Moon, then update the Uranus/Pluto Square and finally get on to the changing of the Season.
