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.

capricorn

 

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.

Well like always, many things going on in the skies. Of course the big one is Saturn leaves Sagittarius 20th, (lets hear a bloody big cheer for that!!!) especially Saggies, Gemini, Pisces and Virgo will be pleased as you probably have had enough and enters Capricorn, less friction as Saturn is back in the sign he rules. Like always, look at your birth chart to see where Capricorn is in your chart and how you can work with Saturn.

Mercury goes Direct on the 23rd. This will roll the energy along a little faster. Bringing things, situations forward.

Sun also enters Capricorn 22nd (solstice) meets up with Saturn, just a few hours later. Take some time to slow down, to contemplate, reflect on the path ahead. Think about how you are going to build a new life.

BLACK MOON LILITH enters CAPRICORN!

She is dark, deep and determined.

BML, she is the wild, untamed, raw and passionate side of you, she is working from within the psyche. Often she is denied, suppressed and not addressed, she can come out and make you and others feel uncomfortable. Many just want to lock her away, whether you are male or female.
*
Here energy will be channeled through Capricorn lens, structure, authority, goals. Have a purpose, have somewhere to aim for or the mountain to climb. Use determination, focus, and grit to keep you going, as she can drive you forward as long as you know where the mountain top is that you are heading for it can and will be difficult, but dig deep and go.
*
Channel any anger, (as BML can often be pissed off, particularity with authority, rejected or tossed aside) to keep you moving forward. Use the burn.
*
Keep in mind Capricorn is rules and consequences, so this may come up during this time.
*
Now is the time to set goals, have meaning and purpose to it, make a commitment and take it all seriously.
*
Be mature, disciplined and focused.

Weekly Tarot Card, 23 Oct 2017!

This weeks Tarot Card The Devil!
Capricorn
The Devil is a major arcana card, a soul card, has much more meaning in our lives than the minor arcana, which deal with our day-to-day issues.
The Devil card does get a bad wrap, it deals with more of the material, physical realms, of our strong, primal desires. It may and can be about control, power, sex, manipulation, it talks about the more darker, primal, raw side of our nature. The shadow self, and we all have one of those.

However to truly know oneself you do have to dance with the Devil every now and then, because without the dark you do not know the light. Or lighter side of life. But how deep and dark you want to go…..well that’s entirely up to you.

Maybe this week you may feel the impact of the Devil in your life, a lustful feeling, a strong attraction, enjoyment in the physical world, you might indulge or overindulge (Jupiter in Scorpio), you may just go for it and take a risk which may or may not pay off.

You can also use this primal, raw energy and channel it into creative areas of your life, it’s a new source of energy, it can be strong and powerful for you.

It is related to Capricorn, keep that in mind, karma, consequence of your actions when playing with the Devil, be somewhat cautious in your approach if you can, but sometimes the temptation of the Devil is just too much, particularly if your really like the way it is wrapped.
This is all about the naughty side of life, throwing caution to the wind.

Astro bits, 25th Aug, 2017!

MOON in LIBRA square PLUTO.
You want your feelings to level out, to find some balance, but the Moon hits into Pluto, so here comes that feeling again, more deep intense feelings come floating to the surface. Back into some internal conflict.
Best way through is to find the balance and hold on to that. And watch out for any rough, brooding, emotions that come up. Pluto wants to transform and regenerate you.

Venus opposite Pluto, 15th Aug, 2017!

VENUS in Cancer opposite PLUTO in Capricorn.
Venus rules, love, money, relationship, self-worth and values.
Pluto rules, sex, power, money, other people, transform and transcends.
And both have control and power struggles going on. Opposition is external, you and your relationship with the outside world, or other people. 
Something you have to face, and it brings up some intense feelings and fear. A culmination of results, things have gone to the highest point, an ending may come, bits have to get released or thrown away.

You may want something from another, it’s a deep longing or need.
There may be power forces of tension or conflict coming from within or an outside/external force.  Projecting your issues onto someone (or they could be projecting onto you), is a big y with this one.

Basically, Venus in Cancer, she will take it more personally, (her security might be attached to something outside of herself,) themes come under the microscope to be looked at, or played out. Within you, it’s about the self-worth, self-esteem, values, love, attraction, are you taking care of you, your needs, your feelings. As you may not get what you want from the other!

Feed yourself.

This may be a sore spot.

Pluto always brings in the intense undercurrent of feelings, raging, stirring from within. Most probably it is coming from an outside force that is stirring your pot.
I always see Pluto’s influence as peeling back the layers of your psyche, emotions are trying to surface to be released and let go of, and it usually is painful and annoying, but however it needs to be done. As it’s right in front of you.

This transit is happening for a day or two.

A grand cross is happening over weekend, thanks to the moon being in Aries, which lines it all up. All in cardinal signs, a call for a change and action to happen, you may feel pushed and pulled in many direction. Within yourself and your relationships.

This may be an if your up for it time, if not do/be the Venus trine Nepturn.

Moon in Aries square Pluto and Venus, emotions may be sparky and high, in areas of love, money, relationships. Emotions may run deep and can be in conflict. You can have trouble of letting go here. You want stability, comfort, but no.

Venus in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, these two are quite a nice combo, just don’t go overboard or to far in all Venus things. Love, spending, eating, you know, try some discipline and awareness when out and about.

Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn, a push forward, you want to get somewhere, make a few changes, but it’s a tough gig.

Venus opposite Pluto, most relationship will be tested with this one.

Moon opposite Jupiter, you may want to indulge in whatever makes you feel good, Jupiter does expend all that is touched, Moon in Aries, you are fired up.

  • Floating in the background is

Mercury opposite Neptune – challenging, your mind is not get clear, Neptune makes it unclear, best to hold off on any major decision and keep in mind Mercury is stationing to go Rx, it’s a bit of a mind F**k.

Venus trine Neptune – harmonious, this may get lost with all of the above challenges. You may really just want to float along in dream world.This is a great aspect for love, plus any creative ideas or project, may bring in some visionary ideas. Escape into a good book, be creative, and just chill.

You will still feel the undercurrent of the energies triggering you. There maybe a slight feeling of disappointment, fatigue hanging around. Moon in Aries, you have the urge to keep going.

 

Jupiter square Pluto, 5 Aug, 2017!

JUPITER square PLUTO,

Since Nov these two have been meeting up or clashing, to bring about a deep change and transformation in your life. August 5th is the final phrase for these two. Expansion and transformation is what is being talked about here. This may have caused you to feel like you were being pulled from the inside out. Now is the time to sum it all up and to take stock of how well you are going. Some success and some failure’s for sure. 

You have needed to grow and expand your world, your beliefs, move beyond the old way of moving and being in this life. You have been stretched, and all things have been put under the  magnifying glass for you to see, where and what needs to be transformed, acknowledged, healed and of course the final acceptance of what all that is for you.

Keep in mind that other people, played apart in your growth, they pushed and pulled you to move. Each struggling to maintain some sense of their own worth and center. It was a tangle, mess for a while. You do have a need for power, success and are driven to achieve. Trying to find balance and your equilibrium again. It may have taken the long way, to get you to where you want to go, create and be.

Leave the old persona behind, time now for you to get in touch with your power center and direct your focus and energy to push you through. Direct your focus on moving forward to breakaway from the old ties, that bind you back and hold you in.

Pluto is the intense transformation, rebirth, that the soul is being called to change here. That does however ask you to take a very good, long, deep, honest look at you.
