Mercury in Capricorn does not mince words, they say it, as it is, it’s more of the direct approach. If you mean it, want it, then say it and commit to it.

SUN conjunct PLUTO!

Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.

VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.

Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.

Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.

Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.

 

VENUS conjunct SUN, 8-9th Jan, 2018!

 

Grace-Kelly
Venus and Sun meet up again, last time was, March 24-25th 2017 in Aries, Venus was Rx. What was started back then comes to a culmination point, being in Aries you may have started a new phase or beginning of, love, self love, money, relationship, self-esteem and values plus Sun, identity, vitality and purpose. You found faith, strength and courage in Aries.

Now in Capricorn, it’s manifesting or has been, is forming a structure, it’s becoming solid for you, Capricorn can and may bring limits, rules and work to all of these things. It can also bring in stability and longevity to Venus and Sun themes.

They do meet up again 27th Oct, 2018 when Venus is Rx in Scorpio, another layer is added and more to come.

Sun, Venus quincunx North Node, 5th Jan, 2018!

 

8fadabc797121910036ae37b43333949

SUN,VENUS in Capricorn quincunx North Node in Leo, that’s not easy, adjustments need to be made in areas of love, relationship, money or values, your identity maybe, how you express it. You may have hit a bit of a crisis point, as to where to go now, the path forward.

Sun/Venus in Capricorn, perhaps you need to take it seriously, show some affection, not be aloof or too cool, make that commitment or not……in or out.
Find the heart and value. Warm it all up a bit. The future is the path with heart. Too feel confidant. The two points need to find balance. Look at it an try to understand what you are seeing.

FULL MOON IN CANCER, 2nd Jan, 12:23 pm (aest)

dreamstime_m_31836267-1080x675

Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune  can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.

Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.

Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.

Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.

Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.

Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.

Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.

Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

Areas of love, money, relationships, resources and values, can be more serious, you can feel limited or restricted, and commitments, responsibility will a big part of her journey. You take the realistic approach and need to be real. Take a look at your wants and how you get them, what limits you from getting them, are you to cautious, fearful, shamed/guilty.

Setting the standard of your worth or values is strong. Look at traditions or rules what are you working in or what applies to you. As always have a goal and know what it is you want, as you are in a new cycle of getting it.

Venus does meet up with Saturn first up, a new cycle begins, some things may be hard, some things my go, a new relationship with self needs be formed, new structure or rules to go by, big commitments, deep bonds with others can happen in this cycle. Have a strong basis for yourself and with all that you want to build with and on. She does take love and her relationships seriously.

SUN enters Capricorn, this year is a special time as the Sun enters Capricorn it meets up with Saturn in Capricorn and its been 29 years since Saturn has been in the sign that it rules. Saturn is finally home after being away for a long, long, time.

You are beginning another long cycle make this one count. You are building your life.
Sun enters Capricorn, if possible take some time out to reflect/contemplate on the year, or the last 3 years, look at where you are now, how much has changed, how much have you changed?

Did you achieve all that you set out to do? or did your goals and plans not become reality. Where did you Succeed and fail, take some time before you enter into 2018 to reflect and pause, to honestly look at where you are now.
What is real and true for you.

Work at structuring your goals, work at them, release some if they need to go. Look at the year gone by to see what is different. That is the starting point, not the dreams of last year, I am pretty sure many things have changed and so have you. Some things you may have wanted to change and lets face it, they really needed to  and others were out of your hands and control.

In Capricorn you may feel more serious, sober, conservative, cautious, responsible and ambitious, you will work better with more structure, organization and discipline, you also can feel less emotional or would prefer not do deal with to many emotions, let’s stick to the facts, keep to the rules and follow the instructions and plans, as you have things to do.

Be persistent, practical. Excellent time for making plans and goals, more chance they will manifest and crystallize.

Capricorn is a driven sign, they will work hard and preserver in getting what they want. Once the mind is set there is no turning back.
It’s about planning, doing, having structure, keeping your eye on the long term goals, being wiser, smarter, determined, ambitious and very persistent.

The goat’s ambition will push you through, keep climbing towards the top of the mountain.
