Astrology Update, Solar Eclipse, February 15th, 2018: Creating New Stories

Today has offered us a New Moon with a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius.  Though visible only to parts of South America and Antarctica, this eclipse has already been felt for a few days now by those of us with luminaries, personal planets, or personal points in the 3rd decanate of Aquarius, and will continue to be felt for a while to come.  That’s the thing about eclipses – the big results in our lives tend not to show up on the day of the eclipse, but instead unfold over the next six months, until the time of the next eclipse.

The last Solar Eclipse was in Leo on August 21st of 2017, indicating changes in core identity and self-expression – that eclipse was personal and creative, and that creativity is mirrored and progressed as we move forward into this new eclipse season.  This eclipse in Aquarius indicates changes in group relations and the causes that capture our imaginations and our dedication, with strong idealist and populist overtones.  The personal changes effected as a result of the Leo Solar Eclipse have consequences that are being carried forward to effect changes on a larger social scale during the six months following this Aquarian Solar Eclipse.

Solar eclipses underscore the extent to which the hidden forces of our instincts can impel deep personal change by casting their shadow on the light of consciousness.  The Sun//Moon conjunction of the New Moon is astrology’s most powerful aspect, a time when our conscious and unconscious selves are aligned.  Thus, new seeds of intention are best planted at the New Moon, when these forces within us are in sync.  The Solar Eclipse gives our intuitive side an edge over our more logical side, triggering situations that can offer us a fresh start in whatever area of our lives the eclipse touches through its contact with our natal charts.

This eclipse is conjoined with Mercury and Juno in Aquarius, emphasizing communication and mature partnerships.  Mercury in combination with the Sun and Moon combines intelligence with will and instinct, so there is a good potential for thoughtful and creative planning to guide us forward during this eclipse season, and Juno’s presence makes it likely that our plans require mutually beneficial relationships and shared emotional intelligence to thrive.  That said, it pays to remember that Mercury is a trickster god, playful but also amoral.  This is the Magician archetype in the Tarot, willing to experiment with whatever is at hand regardless of consequence if it furthers his aims.  This is also a storyteller aspect, and with the Sun and Moon sextiling Uranus in Aries that story is likely to have a few unexpected twists and turns, but with Jupiter in Scorpio squaring Mercury, we can expect more than a bit of pulp sensationalism in this narrative, and should take care not to leave the proverbial Caps Lock on lest we turn our creative dialogs into unintentional shouting matches.  With Jupiter sextiling Pluto, there is power behind the bombast, and we may find our Magician storyteller called to stand up to authority.  These next six months are a good time to craft new narratives, a time favoring writers and content creators ready to take bold new steps, create new stories, and build the alliances needed to get those stories seen and heard by those most in need of them.

Venus in Pisces sextiles Saturn in Capricorn today, underscoring the need to create and maintain stable relationships, with both planets inconjunct to Ceres in Leo, creating a Yod formation (“the finger of God”) that points to how we nurture and express our core selves within those relationships.  Venus in Pisces is sympathetic and adaptable, and harmonizes well with Saturn in Capricorn’s sober pragmatism, both putting pressure on Ceres in Leo’s hunger for a solo spotlight.  We are not being asked to dissolve our egos in relationship, however, for the mature and socially conscious partnerships called for by Juno in Aquarius not only allow for individuality and eccentricity, they encourage these qualities.  The Yod to Ceres does not negate the spotlight; it enhances it, and asks us to create relationships that feed our needs as individuals as a means to a better collective, a greater social vision that recognizes and upholds the rights of all, and gives us all a place to shine.  

Mars in idealistic and social Sagittarius trines the North Node in Leo, giving further impetus to this alliance of our core creative and karmic needs with our social consciousness, but Mars also squares Neptune in Pisces today, increasing the potential for deceptive action, seduction, and subterfuge, as well as accidents or harmful actions involving water.  Mars conjunct Vesta increases our idealistic focus, and we may find ourselves engaged in such aggressive pursuit of our goals that we forget to look before we leap, or run afoul of those wishing to take advantage of our idealism for their own nefarious purposes.  Thankfully, Pallas in Taurus trine Black Moon Lilith in Capricorn enhances our cool-headed planning capacity, giving us the ability to step back and assess our circumstances dispassionately, should we choose to make use of it.  The airy detachment that the Aquarian Sun, Moon, and Mercury are famous for is being bolstered by earthy practicality wielded in alignment with divine vision, giving us the capacity to seize our fate with both hands and use our united minds and hearts to create it anew.

Astrology Update, February 24th, 2017: Action!

We are still feeling the residual effects of last night’s Mercury/Saturn sextile, fortifying our minds and our communication, aiding our planning and organizing skills, our ability to do repetitive tasks, and our data-crunching capabilities.  This is a good time to get tasks done that might not normally be exciting but which are necessary steps in furthering our own improvement as well as our social goals and ideals.  We’re also already starting to feel the effects of next week’s Jupiter/Uranus opposition, the second in a series that started in late December and will culminate at the end of September, reinforcing yesterday’s Jupiter/Eris opposition and challenging us to find the balance between innovative individual freedom and harmony in relationships as well as faith in social order, particularly when our Eris-fueled bullshit detectors are dialed to 10.

Today’s astrological aspects are blessedly harmonious and minimal, giving us some respite from the activity of the past couple days.  This morning sees a sextile from the Moon in Aquarius to Venus in Aries, giving some Venusian warmth to our feelings and increasing our friendliness while at the same time allowing us to remain self-motivated and even a bit detached.  This is a great balance to encourage taking action without getting bogged down in emotion and simultaneously giving some sense of social responsibility to the will to dance to our own music.  Of course, given that the transcendental ruler of Aquarius, Uranus is hanging out in Aries along with Venus, Mars, and Eris, that sense of responsibility is still likely to be revolutionary.  Our instincts this morning lead us in search of new ways of doing things, and are going to be excited by new ideas and technologies, but thanks to Venus in this mix we are likely to want to be hands-on with that excitement rather than just living in the world of ideas.  Since Venus governs the female sexual principle, this aspect can also be a good reminder of just how sexy forthrightness and a bit of impulsiveness can be, and that’s a pleasurable glow to light up the morning and linger into the astrological quiet of the afternoon.

This active impulse is reinforced late tonight when the Moon in Aquarius sextiles Mars in Aries, giving our emotions and instincts a boost from our drive, ambition, aggression, focus, and energy.  Mars governs the male sexual principle, and following on the heels of our emotions aligned with Venusian affections we may find ourselves pursuing those affections more aggressively tonight.  Aries is one of the two signs that Mars rules, so he’s in the height of his power here, bolstering our courage and uninterested in excuses about not getting what we want.  Mars in Aries rejects excuses and moves forward boldly and quickly to make it so already, damnit.  Those of us who have been languishing in uncertainty may find this aspect coming after the boost in confidence from this morning’s Moon/Venus sextile cutting through all of that crap, and about time, too.

Astrology Update, February 23rd, 2017: Guiding Fires

Late this morning the Moon entered Aquarius, bringing our instincts into a place governed more by reason than emotion.  The Moon tends to be slightly uncomfortable in Aquarius, and so at this time we are more inclined to think about a feeling than actually feel it.  Aquarius is highly oriented toward group concerns and causes, so now is a time to be social for a purpose.  On the social end of things, activism is favored as well as classes, public lectures, and similar gatherings that educate and lift people up, while on the solitary side activities like reading and other means of self-improvement are emphasized.  We are inclined to be curious and friendly under this Moon, interested most in what is best for all, yet also a bit aloof and highly self-motivated, as well as zealously guarding our liberty even in the midst of our social endeavors.

We are now also under the influence of an opposition between Jupiter in Libra and Eris in Aries, a slow-moving influence that has been building over the past couple of months, exact today for the second time in 2017 due to Jupiter’s retrograde, with the third and final opposition between these two upcoming in early September.  Eris the dwarf planet whose discovery led to the demotion of Pluto from full-fledged planet to dwarf planet status.  Named for the Greek goddess of discord, Eris heightens our discontent and our dislike of hypocrisy, and due to an incredibly elongated elliptic orbit has been slowly traversing Aries for many years, even long before her discovery (to put things in perspective, she’s been in Aries since before I was born).  The aspects that Uranus and Jupiter have been making with Eris recently (Uranus will conjunct Eris exactly again in mid-March and is still in orb to be considered conjunct now) are a huge part of why people are so fed up with their governments and institutional hypocrisy, and we are likely to see more disruption as the cycle between these planets continues over the next few months, with Uranus’s revolutionary fervor joining forces with Eris’ will to shake things up, magnified by the ongoing opposition to Jupiter that has fueled both of them.  For today, we may feel more disruption in relation to our ability to put up and shut up, a little less willingness to be diplomatic in relation to social realms and authority figures, and that influence continues to extend through the end of the month.

Toward mid-day, the Moon in Aquarius sextiled Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius, increasing our focus on social realms and causes and our ideals in these areas.  We may see challenges to our ideals now that we instinctively accept and that shape our feelings toward our own causes, helping us to more effectively navigate both those challenges and what must be done to overcome them.  Our drive is instinctively increased at this time, even as we may feel more in need of surrendering to the larger forces of social change – our unconscious will to be part of a global shift is heightened now.

The big astrological news of the day is this afternoon’s sextile between Mercury in Aquarius and Saturn in Sagittarius, reinforcing that sense of social change but in a more conscious fashion, with our minds joining forces with our discipline to persuade both ourselves and our society to live up to our ideals.  Our minds and our communication are more serious at this time, steady, disciplined, aware of our limitations but willing to push through them with patience and persistence.  This time favors modest financial dealings, taking steps to ensure future security, especially when doing so is beneficial on a community level.  It’s a good time for planning, scheduling, and organizing, particularly in relation to social causes and political actions.  Now is the time for our thoughts and words to be the sparks that ignite beacon fires out of our strongest beliefs and ideals.

Astrology of February 21st, 2017: Thoughts and Beliefs

Early this morning the Moon in Capricorn sextiled the Sun in Pisces, aligning our unconscious and conscious selves harmoniously, with our emotions and instincts expressing themselves in a practical, goal-driven manner and our core sense of self expressing sensitivity and compassion as well as a concern for the bigger picture.  This aspect set a tone for the early morning of combining our personal aims with the well-being of our fellows, and this was reinforced shortly thereafter by the Moon in Capricorn trining the North Node in Virgo, making us mindful of the details in relation to fulfilling our karmic purpose.  All too often people reduce the concept of karma to a glorified system of punishment and reward, but really karma is more a matter of cause and effect, the necessary balancing that must happen in response to prior actions.  I think of it a bit like kinetic energy.  Since individual karma does not occur in a vacuum, it is part of an overall pattern created by the combined karma of all.  Thus, each person’s karmic path is intertwined with the paths of others.  These two astrological aspects so close together reinforce this understanding, and help us to be mindful of our goals in service to both our own path and the greater karma of the world.

Within minutes, however, the Moon in Capricorn squares Venus in Aries, challenging our feelings and instincts with our need for action to satisfy our affections and desires.  This challenge is not necessarily a bad thing.  Since a Capricornian Moon is ambitious and goal-oriented, our instinctual drive under its influence is to get things done, but sometimes it can get bogged down in planning and cautiousness, so having an active, impatient Venus in Aries demanding that we move may very well be the impetus that we need.  Of course, Venus in Aries is likely to err more on the selfish side of the balance of personal and universal needs previously mentioned, but the consciousness inspired by the Sun/Moon sextile less than an hour earlier may still keep us mindful of our better natures, and regardless, Venus is still a benevolent influence even in a challenging aspect.  At most, this influence might impart some minor frustration regarding conflicting goals or the sacrifice of some personal comfort to fulfill a higher purpose, and since Aries is not prone to holding grudges, that is not likely to last long.

The big astrological news of the day is Mercury in Aquarius trining Jupiter in Libra toward mid-day, as aspect which affects the entire day and which we built up to during yesterday’s strong Mercury and Jupiter influences, and will still feel residual effects of tomorrow just as we are still experiencing residual effects today from yesterday’s Mercury/Uranus sextile.  Keep in mind that Mercury here is a mediating force between Jupiter and Uranus in their ongoing opposition, just as Saturn had previously been in the Triangle of Potential that was in force in December and January.  Yesterday’s Mercury/Uranus sextile and today’s Mercury/Jupiter trine form their own (short-lived) Triangle of Potential, with our thoughts and communication mediating in the struggle for balance between our personal desire for freedom and the rebellion used to achieve it and our desire for connection and peaceful relationships as well as our faith in diplomacy and social harmony.  Today’s Mercury/Jupiter trine reinforces the interaction between our thoughts and our beliefs, specifically when it comes to our faith in our social connections and personal relationships, bringing with it a strong sense of optimism and a desire for diplomatic solutions to conflict.  Now is a time to tap into Jovian good fortune in our communications and contracts, as well as in dealings with government and health concerns.

This afternoon the Sun conjuncts the South Node in Pisces, making us mindful of where we have been, and putting us in a place of power with regard to the skills that we have already developed.  Now is a time for us to be conscious of what we have learned thus far.  Of course, because the South Node is on an axis with the North Node, this puts the Sun opposite the North Node, making us conscious of what we have not yet done in pursuit of our karmic path.  The Sun’s position here may make us mindful of where we feel stuck or held back, and can increase our hunger for what we have not yet achieved.  Unless, of course, we really want to stay stuck…  Since Pisces’ transcendental ruler is Neptune, which governs our more escapist tendencies, our consciousness in this realm may find itself wishful for the past, nostalgic and content with sentimentality rather than growth.  Still, because oppositions increase awareness of the opposing forces, it is unlikely that we will be able to remain in such fantasies without having something draw our attention to where we really should be headed.  This is a good time to make peace with the past and set our sights firmly on the future, especially since Pisces’ classical ruler Jupiter is so emphasized by today’s Mercury/Jupiter trine, and therefore the more visionary and optimistic side of the Sun’s Piscean consciousness is emphasized.  Our hunger for the future is born out of the past, so this combination of aspects today may well strengthen our appetites.

Tonight, the Moon in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces, putting our emotions and instincts in harmony with our fantasies and spiritual yearnings.  This is a gently harmonious aspect, giving a pleasantly dreamy quality to the evening without taking our feet off the ground.  Whether daydreams or actual dreams, sometimes our fantasies help bolster our goals in useful ways with vision and intention.  The theory of relativity was developed as the result of a daydream, after all.  Sometimes the real world and the imagination need to join hands in order to achieve greater things, and tonight is one of those times.  This is a good time to use our imaginations in creating our plans, getting practical with our creativity and creative with our practicality, and fueling our ambitions with dreams of what might be.

Astrology of February 20th, 2017: The Speed of Thought

The Moon in Sagittarius sextiled Mercury in Aquarius in the early morning hours today, giving some fire to our thoughts and some intelligent fuel to our emotions, and aligning both to social realms that speak to our higher ideals.  This made us likely to be independent in our attitudes and instinctive responses, even while being mindful of the greater picture, and while not likely to have been cold and detached, we probably weren’t too interested in getting cozy either.  Our friendliness this morning has been in service to our values, our thoughts and communication tied to our ideals and vision.  

A couple of hours later the Moon in Sagittarius trined Uranus in Aries, heightening the Aquarian influence previously set into motion by the Moon/Mercury sextile, causing things to speed up.  Uranus governs sudden change, and as the Moon governs our unconscious reactions under this influence tend to be quicker, changing our responses on a dime and in some cases going in very uncharacteristic directions.  Of course, this gave a great boost to those of us in situations that benefit from lightness on one’s feet.  Our moods may have been fluctuating rapidly this morning, but since the trine is the most supportive of aspects, that is likely to have been beneficial in adapting to changing circumstances, giving us a chance to understand and even make friends with the upheaval in our lives.

A couple of hours later (still morning!) the Moon in Sagittarius sextiled Jupiter in Libra, expanding upon whatever we have been feeling, so if the Moon/Uranus trine got us revved up, the addition of Jupiter into the mix may have us positively bouncing off the walls.  The Moon/Jupiter sextile also reinforces the social feelings of the earlier Moon/Mercury sextile, and in combination with the Moon/Uranus trine continues the ongoing theme of the Triangle of Potential of the past couple of months, with the Moon standing in for Saturn this morning (no worries – Saturn will get back into the game tonight!).  Now our emotions are acting as the mediator in the ongoing struggle for balance between Uranus in Aries’ headstrong rebellion and need for independence versus Jupiter in Libra’s magnification of relationship and social issues and desire for peace at all costs.  How we feel and respond instinctively today can give us clues in how to navigate the larger issues of this Jupiter/Uranus aspect that are continuing until mid-March and then will revisit us in late September and early October.  Remember that aspects between these slow-moving outer planet affect the whole world on a generational scale, and while we all have our individual interactions with and reactions to such aspects, we are caught up in the larger pattern as a society well as the personal iterations of it.  Since the Moon in Sagittarius heightens our faith and optimism, today we may find ourselves applying that feeling to our larger life patterns and experiences in order to mitigate the upheaval being caused by social and global forces.

Toward mid-day we may find ourselves having to really put the Moon’s Sagittarian optimism to use as the Moon squares Chiron in Pisces and we are confronted with universal pain on a personal level.  We may find ourselves challenged to meet the suffering of the world and still keep our own heads up, and may wind up helping others to our own detriment, or may find that failing to do so has profound consequences.  This is a time to be careful to tread the line between compassionate service and martyrdom.  Conversely, we may find our ability to care severely damaged in ways that challenge our ideals, and may have difficulty being sympathetic enough to respond appropriately to those around us.  This is a rough aspect for people in service industries especially.  Regardless of how it manifests, it will be hard to be comfortable with what we experience at this time, and our emotional reactions may tend toward the frustrated or even angry or despairing as a result.

This afternoon, the Moon conjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius, potentially adding to the gloom-and-doom that can be inspired by a Moon/Chiron square.  Saturn tend to inspire seriousness in everything he touches, and in this case he’s touching feeling and instincts that have just had a rough patch after this morning’s exhilarating ride.  If we use this aspect well, we may find ourselves digging into routine and process at this time in order to reassure ourselves and feel some stability, and since the Moon also turns void-of-course at this time, routine is what we most need to focus on rather than starting anything bold and new.  The void-of-course period doesn’t favor particularly clear thinking either, especially with Saturn tending to darken our emotions and potentially our perspective, but we can still mine some useful insights out of this time, and Saturn’s influence can give us the discipline to make good use of our instincts now.

This especially true since the big news of the night is Mercury in Aquarius sextiling Uranus in Aries, which may have kept some of the frenetic feeling of this morning in motion throughout the day.  Our thoughts are likely to run faster today, and quicken even more as evening approaches, even as our emotions start to float through the void-of-course period.  The Mercury/Uranus sextile increases our capacity for thinking out of the box, and we may find unusual solutions to problems affecting our social groups and causes during this time.  We may also find ourselves communicating in a more rebellious fashion at this time, which we would do well to be mindful of if we find ourselves in positions relative to authority figures.  Those of us with any gift for oratory, whether previously known or not, may well just find it sparked tonight in service of something revolutionary, and since Uranus governs technology some of us may do our best communicating  during this time via the Internet.

Late tonight the Moon enters dedicated Capricorn, aligning our emotions with our goals and reputations, as well as our livelihoods.  This makes it especially worthwhile to utilize the Mercury/Uranus sextile’s heightened capacity for communication via technology in service to our goals and our careers, and with Mercury in Aquarius’ mindfulness regarding our function in the social order, the Moon in Capricorn’s awareness of social hierarchies may be especially useful in tandem with our interactions now.  Capricornian seriousness calls to mind whatever feelings we experienced under Saturn’s influence earlier, as Capricorn is ruled by Saturn.  Since Saturn is also the classical ruler of Aquarius, there is a continuing thread between our feelings and our mind here, even as Mercury aspects the rebel Uranus, and that Saturnine influence may prove to be the stabilizing force that allows us to make the best use of the Mercury/Uranus sextile throughout the afternoon and evening.  Keep in mind that Capricorn excels in seeing opportunity, even in difficult situations, so our seriousness during the latter portion of the day is likely to be beneficial, and the Capricorn Moon can give our emotions some focus to keep us steady in the midst of whatever turmoil our hyperactive minds can cook up.
