Astrology Update, New Moon in Capricorn, January 16th, 2018: Why So Serious?

New Moons are a time when our conscious and unconscious selves are aligned, working together in harmony, giving us a great opportunity to go within and understand ourselves and what we truly want, and then plant seeds of intention accordingly.  With all planets now moving direct and no retrogrades until Jupiter’s retrograde in early March, the seeds that we plant now are especially favored to yield real results, particularly if we are patient and mindful of where our goals fit within the larger plan.  

This New Moon occurs at 26 degrees Capricorn, a sign known for its patience and determination, and with Capricorn’s ruler Saturn in this sign along with Pluto, Venus, Mercury, and Black Moon Lilith, there is a powerful emphasis on all things Saturnine, including age, time, process, karma, rules, responsibility, limitations, and structure.  There are consequences to the seeds we sow now, and what we grow will take time and patience to cultivate.  Now is a good time to seek the advice of a wise elder, to respect earth-based traditions, tend to our bodies and our bones in particular, and reconnect with the natural world as best we can despite potentially daunting winter weather.

Jupiter in Scorpio sextile to Pluto in Capricorn at this time is part of a repeating pattern for much of 2018, expanding our possibilities for transformation and lending faith and optimism to the process, which are much-needed when facing some of the darker institutional and societal secrets that are being dredged up during Pluto’s Capricorn transit, as well as personal traumas for those of us with planets and luminaries touched by this transit.  This sextile can help us to be real powerhouses in whatever areas of our natal and progressed charts are touched by Scorpio and Capricorn, but it can also amp up the intensity of our experiences there, though being a supportive aspect it is unlikely to yield any dire Plutonian fallout in and of itself.  Since this New Moon, Sun, and Venus in Capricorn sextile Chiron in Pisces, which is also trined by Mars in Scorpio, what hurts are dredged up under Pluto’s influence can yield potent lessons that increase our healing wisdom, compassion, and sense of universal connection, and we are most likely to gain revelations regarding wounds incurred in relation to desire and intimacy.

Mars in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries during this New Moon makes for sudden surprises that can be jarring to our energy and drive, and with Mars still in orb to its recent conjunction with Jupiter, Mars in Scoprio’s intense focus and motivation continues to be a force to be reckoned with.  This is a time to enlist extra Capricornian caution when driving or engaged in other undertakings in which an accident could have fatal consequences, especially since with both Uranus and Mars in signs that Mars rules, we may find ourselves so focused on our goals that we fail to see potential dangers, or do not give them the respect they deserve.  Since this inconjunct is part of a Learning Triangle with the Sun, Moon, and Venus unexpected lessons are emphasized here, particularly those that call into question our desires and what we do to attain them, with both our conscious and unconscious selves poised to make use of whatever wisdom we may gain from these experiences.  Mars gains the benefit of the sextile to the Sun and Moon in this configuration, making us conscious of our focus and drive while feeling intuitively aligned with that awareness.  But this New Moon and Venus are squaring Uranus, making us equally aware of how tenuous our position is right now.  This is an unsettling aspect, to be sure, and we may find our moods and affections flip-flopping as a result or unusually self-indulgent, sending us in pursuit of newness and excitement with potential frustration and flaring tempers when we find our our desires thwarted.

The Sun, Moon, and Venus all in the last decanate of Capricorn emphasize patient ambition in pursuit of our desires, and Saturn, Mercury, and Black Moon Lilith all in the first decanate of Capricorn emphasize patience and persistence even more, with a methodical outlook that transcends temporary fads and is not impressed by Moon/Venus-square-Uranus impulsiveness.  But Uranus in Aries is the height of impatience, eager to start endeavors yet often hard-pressed to keep up the momentum necessary to continue, and we may find ourselves tripping over sudden changes in our feelings and emotional attention-span.  Therefore, whatever seeds of intention we decide to plant at this New Moon, we need to recognize that the dogpile of planets in Capricorn may still give us all of the patience and determination in the world despite whatever emotional surprises the Uranian square may cook up, but they also make it likely that what we choose to pursue now will require much time and tenacity to see to the end, with all-too-many obstacles to test us along the way.

Mercury conjuncts Black Moon Lilith in the first decanate of Capricorn during this New Moon, putting our thoughts and communication in alignment with divine will and giving us a certain degree of emotional distance in our thinking.  Lilith can force us to confront our desires by tempting us with what we cannot attain until we have gained a certain degree of emotional maturity, often learning some very difficult lessons in the process.  There is also a Uranian tone to Lilith’s insights, a primal and electric intuition that is both independent and impersonal, helping us to be more objective about our feelings.  Mercury is also still conjunct Saturn at this time, so our thoughts continue to have a certain gravitas to steady the Uranian influence, and in combination with Black Moon Lilith can create a powerful sense of fatefulness in our ideas and communication now.  Mercury in Capricorn carefully brings together all of the facts to bear upon a subject before arriving at any conclusion, creating an impression of slow thoughtfulness that can be mistaken for a lack of mental dexterity, yet in fact Mercury in Capricorn’s methodical thought-process repeatedly yields the right answer.  If we need to carefully think through all aspects of a plan before making any decision, and do so with mindfulness of the long-term consequences of whatever decision we will make, this Mercury transit is the time to do it.  There is the potential for the Saturn/Mercury/Black Moon Lilith conjunction to yield a somewhat bleak and depressive outlook if we let Saturn’s influence become more weight than motivator, so sensitive souls would do well to remember that and keep a sense of humor on-hand to balance out such a hefty dose of Saturnine seriousness.

Astrology Update, April 27th, 2017: Life of the Party

Today started with the Moon in Taurus trining Pluto in Capricorn in the wee hours of the morning, increasing our emotional perceptiveness and intensity.  Those of us still awake or just waking up at that hour were not likely to be interested in superficial experiences and may have found ourselves drawn into situations of complexity and power that called on us to have greater emotional awareness and feel very deeply.  Those of us still sleeping may have had unusually vivid and intricate dreams, well worth taking note of in waking hours for the secrets of our inner world that they could reveal.

The skies have been quiet since then until this afternoon’s sextile from the Moon in Taurus to Chiron in Pisces, creating a gentle harmony between our grounded emotions and the wisdom we gain from our limitations and injuries.  This afternoon is a good time to connect with those in whom we can be vulnerable and confide about the areas of life where we struggle, and if we are not feeling particularly in need of a sympathetic ear we may find ourselves in the position of the voice of experience helping to bolster the spirits of others in need.

Tonight the Moon sextiles Venus in Pisces, creating feelings of conviviality that gently steer us to gather with our friends and loved ones and enjoy the richness of our close connections.  We are likely to enjoy entertaining others in our homes tonight, as the Taurus Moon combines forces with this sign’s ruler to make us particularly house-proud now, delighting in the environments we create and sharing them with others.  This is a good time for love relationships, old and new, a time to mend relationships that have been under duress, as we can gently and lovingly communicate our feelings under this aspect and smooth over rough edges.

This aspect begins a very short void-of-course period lasting only a few minutes before the Moon enters Gemini and whatever festivities we are enjoying for the night get a boost of Gemini liveliness and charm.  Our emotions and instincts under a Gemini Moon are driven more by intellect than by sentimentality, and we are more curious, more inventive, and more communicative as a result.  Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, quickness prevails during this transit and our moods and responses are likely to turn on a dime.  We become more impressionable under this Moon, and more free-spirited, seeking action and stimulation and thriving on change.  On the downside, our decisiveness is likely to be impaired during this time, as we want to know all the options and are keenly aware that there is always more to know, more to explore, and we are likely to resent being pinned down and expected to make a singular choice.  That said, our openness to new experiences now makes us more adventurous and fun-loving, and the Moon’s entry into this sign so soon after the Moon/Venus sextile could make for a very enjoyable night.

That said, late tonight the Moon in Gemini squares the North Node in Virgo, reminding us that not all is fun and games, and some of our adventures could lead us off the the path of our souls’ preferred mode of growth.  It’s all-too-easy to gloss over important details when we’re moving so fast, or to turn to hyperbole in place of truth.  We may find ourselves challenged to keep from losing ourselves in frivolity and superficiality, and would do well not to stray into manipulative territory in our interactions with others.  Being the life of the party is all well and good so long as we remain genuine.

Astrology Update, April 18th, 2017: Mood Swings

In the early morning hours today the Moon in Capricorn squared Jupiter in Libra, amping up our emotions and putting our driven instinctive responses at odds with our more optimistic social tendencies.  For most of us in the Western Hemisphere, this aspect was in play while we were sleeping, but for the very early risers or those very late to bed, we may have felt that our faith and perseverance were challenged, and our relationships may have been tested in the process.  That said, Jupiter is still a very benevolent influence so our feelings overall during this time were likely to be good, but it is also likely that we were less inclined to see the nitty gritty details in our lives at this time, preferring to take a grander approach, and as a result we may have tended toward a bit of off-putting arrogance or devaluing of details that mattered to others, convinced that we had the one true philosophy of life and subtly (or not-so-subtly) communicating that in our attitude.

A few hours later Mercury in Taurus trined the North Node in Virgo, putting our minds at least back on a more detail-oriented track.  Mercury is currently retrograde, putting it between the Earth and the Sun, and Mercury’s influence was also extended at this time through its rulership of Virgo, so matters of thought, communication, travel, and technology were emphasized on this day, particularly in relation to manifesting our soul’s purpose in the material world.  Health matters were also emphasized, and it is possible that we could achieve real progress in regard to a health-related issue as a result of insights and communication on this day.

Shortly thereafter the Moon in Capricorn conjuncted Pluto, intensifying our emotions and bringing hidden things to light, including obsessions and compulsions.  During this time our real feelings were more likely to come to the surface, even those we thought deeply buried.  This was a time to watch out for power games, especially in our close relationships, and to recognize that where we may have felt out-of-control was likely to be indicative of deeper concerns to be explored on a more long-term basis once the transit has passed and we do not feel so overwhelmed.

The skies quieted down for the afternoon, until the Moon in Capricorn squared Uranus in Aries during the evening, increasing the likelihood of sudden upsets and changes, as the Moon’s unconscious cycles connected with and potentially exacerbated erratic Uranian energy.  We may have found ourselves unexpectedly more awake and restless at night, even hyperactive.  We are also likely to feel more impatient and contrary, inclined to disagree with people more out of a sense of contrariness than actual disagreement.  Technological troubles were a distinct possibility at this time.

A few hours later the Moon in Capricorn sextiled Chiron in Pisces easing up on some of the more distressing feelings of the previous two aspects and giving us a chance to assess some of our more difficult feelings with sympathy and compassion.  This would have been a good time to talk with a friend about our troubles, whether just sharing our own feelings or commiserating over mutual difficulties, as discussion of our pain at this time can be especially useful in yielding insight from others who have experienced similar situations.

Late that night the Moon in Capricorn sextiled Venus in Pisces, bringing Venus’ gentle connective power to support our emotions, and further emphasizing the enjoyment we may gain from being with friends and people we love.  Entertaining at home was especially favored by this aspect, and relationships in general got a loving and supportive boost at this time.

Astrology Update, March 31st, 2017: Curious Gardens

Today started with the Moon void-of-course in Taurus for many hours, so this was not a morning for rushing out of the gate or embarking on any bold new initiatives.  Not that such a course was likely with the Moon in slow and steady Taurus – chances are that we were more inclined to roll over and stay in bed for a while longer than usual.  Since the early morning hours also saw the Moon sextiling Chiron in Pisces, we may have found ourselves in a more dreamy state anyway, nursing old wounds and finding ways to comfort ourselves and work through our sensitivities without a whole lot of physical movement.  Chances are that more than a few of us hit the snooze button a couple extra times in the process.

Late this morning the Moon entered Gemini, turning our patient and practical Taurean instincts into something much more quick-moving and much less patient.  Curious, inventive Gemini sets our instincts and emotions on a faster track, eager to see and do and explore and learn, skimming the surfaces of all of the shiny things like a dragonfly.  This is a mental sign, ruled by Mercury, so we’re not so interested in being emotive; though we are much more likely to talk about our emotions with the Moon in this placement, chances are that we do so from the standpoint of theory rather than practice.  This is not a time for expecting ourselves to feel deeply or have long heartfelt talks, but rather a time for flirting, testing, tasting, seeing what gets us where.  This is a time for quick assessment of things we might like to revisit later.  It’s a time for networking, communicating, and experimenting, and those of us working in sales, media, entertainment, or in scientific fields are likely to benefit.

Toward mid-day Mercury entered Taurus, so the even as our emotions and instincts are speeding up with Gemini, the ruler of that sign is slowing down and becoming more earthy, grounded, and practical.  This makes for an interesting balancing effect, keeping the Moon and our emotions from getting dosed with too much flightiness as our thoughts are steadying themselves after all of the action-orientation that Mercury had in Aries.  The ideas that we wanted to go racing after in Aries now have the perseverance of Taurus to keep them going, and the practical capacity for manifestation in the real world.  Our thoughts and communication now are oriented toward what is real, what we can see and touch.  Because Taurus is ruled by Venus, we are also likely to be most concerned with what we value, as well as what and whom we have affection for and take pleasure in.  While our emotions are becoming more light-hearted and desiring fun, our thoughts are becoming more serious, though also more inclined toward hedonism.  Taurus is deeply concerned with material pleasures and comforts, so chances are that we will be thinking and communicating more about what will gain us those pleasures and comforts, but then we will want to get a chance to enjoy them, especially with the Moon in Gemini egging us on to try things out!  This is not a time for self-denial, unless it’s in the name of something we want far more than some temporary pleasure, or that pleasure requires too much movement and effort to get to it.  Though our emotions are highly changeable under Gemini, our thoughts under Taurus are not, and we may get into some mental ruts during this time.  However, we are also likely to have a highly developed aesthetic sense now, appreciating art and beauty more during this time.

In keeping with the connection between the Moon in Gemini and Mercury in Taurus, soon after Mercury entered Taurus the Moon in Gemini sextiled Taurus’ ruler Venus retrograde in Aries, and the fire of our affections got refueled by the airy fun of Gemini.  Venus retrograde may be reconsidering how we connect with others now, but with the support of communicative and responsive Gemini we may have seen some flirtatious back-and-forth early this afternoon, particularly via text or Snapchat, since Gemini favors communication via technology, especially in the pursuit of romance.  Venus’ warmth has coloured our emotions this afternoon as well, giving a more kindly and pleasurable feeling to our day.

This afternoon the Moon in Gemini squares the North Node in Virgo, challenging the process of our souls’ perfection through our chatty and curious instincts.  Both Gemini and Virgo are mutable signs, flexible and adaptable, and both are ruled by Mercury, so on an intellectual level at least these two get along.  But Gemini is an air sign, with ideas that move and change and are dropped just as easily as they are picked up, whereas Virgo is earthy, practical, concerned with the details that lead to growth, and far more patient than Gemini, but also far more critical.  Gemini operates more in the realm of fantastic possibility, whereas Virgo operates more in the realm of realistic probability.  On the plus side, the North Node tends to respond better to challenges than planets and luminaries do, as challenges promote growth and the North Node is all about growth, especially in Virgo.  This afternoon and evening then are a time for learning how to navigate this space between possibility and probability, fun exploration and instructive process, in pursuit of our souls’ path and our purpose in this life.

Astrology Update, March 22nd, 2017: Trying Changes

Today’s lunar activity started out with the Moon in Capricorn squaring Jupiter in Libra in the wee early morning hours.  While the Moon in Capricorn is distinctly aware of social hierarchies, it lacks the diplomacy and tact of Libra, and tends toward a more serious and even depressive mood, whereas Jupiter in Libra is very much about optimism and faith and an expansive viewpoint regarding social dynamics and interpersonal relationships.  Capricorn is focused and driven, and notoriously workaholic, whereas Libra delights in fun and social gatherings.  Capricorn is devoted, whereas Libra is ambivalent.  Libra is talkative, while Capricorn is reticent.  Thus, when these two square off, we may find ourselves confronted with a new iteration of the ongoing lessons of the past few months in the fulfillment of personal versus social needs, with the quiet dedication of Capricorn standing in for the personal side of the equation in place of zany Uranus.  The Moon in Capricorn may be quiet, but is deeply fervent, and mistrusts the social butterfly qualities of Jupiter in Libra.  For those of us who were awake shortly after midnight on the West Coast of North and South America, we may have found ourselves in unexpected disagreements with others, most likely in relation to one person wanting more social and interpersonal contact and another wanting less contact or more in-depth contact.  This also ties in with the ongoing introspection of Venus retrograde regarding relationships and interpersonal connections.  For those who slept through this particular uncomfortable life lesson, count yourselves lucky, but note whatever you may have dreamt during that time, as the Moon governs unconscious wisdom.

The Moon in Capricorn found itself further mediating in the ongoing Jupiter/Uranus opposition when it squared Uranus in Aries several hours later, turning the tables on our emotions and making our morning hours a bit more frenetic than we are used to.  Sudden upsets and the potential for accidents were elevated this morning, and our sense of responsibility may have been confounded by frustrations with the limitations in our lives, especially in relation to our careers and reputations, and we may have felt a temptation to shake things up.  Since this is a challenging aspect, however, any shake up is not likely to happen quietly or easily.  Aries is decidedly self-determined, brash, courageous, even foolhardy.  Capricorn has its own manner of courage but calculates risks and proceeds with a caution that Aries finds painfully slow.  This morning is likely to be a morning of impatience and frustration, sudden stops and starts, and unsettled feelings that continue to linger as the day progresses.  Since this aspect starts a long void-of-course period, it is not likely to find any resolution during the hours following either.  When the Moon makes its last major aspect of the day and turns void-of-course, we may find ourselves unfocused and adrift, and with the reverberations from the Moon/Uranus square agitating us, we can continue to find our plans interrupted and our emotions uncertain.  Normally sticking to routine is the best way of dealing with the void-of-course energies, but that Uranian energy may have other plans.  Since Uranus in Aries steers us toward the kind of bold, new ventures that are absolutely the worst things to try during a void-of-course time, this could be an especially uncomfortable afternoon.  Small course corrections are a better way to go now rather than making any big leaps, as well as taking disruptions in stride and continually working our way back to our routines.

A gentle sextile from the Moon to Chiron toward mid-day may be helping to smooth the course during this time, keeping us conscious of the places where we are sensitive or feel less than adequate at tackling the tasks presented to us, and helping us to find ways around or through them, particularly when doing so can help us aid others with similar issues.  This is a time to apply some extra compassion and remember the merits of camaraderie in the midst of struggle.  It can also help us to be more aware of the causes and patterns of such difficulties in our lives and how they affect us in our work and social structures.

Tonight the Moon enters Aquarius, turning our emotions and instincts from the personal dedication of Capricorn toward a path of applying that personal growth to the larger social order.  The newness and disruption that Uranus sent our way earlier today may well have been clearing the path for our feelings to now operate in a more forward-thinking manner, as Uranus is the transcendental ruler of Aquarius.  Aquarius is an air sign, so this Moon is not a touchy-feely or overtly emotional one, but is more philosophical and exploratory, friendly for the sake of increasing understanding and contributing to the betterment of society.  This is a sign that finds it easier to love many people rather than just one, and connects more over ideas than feelings.  Since this is a fixed sign, we may find ourselves and others being more stubborn now, more dogmatic about the ideas near and dear to us, though simultaneously more interested in hearing about other ideas even if we’re not ready to adopt them just yet.  This is a great time for communication, and social gatherings that contribute to causes, activities that change the world for the better, but it’s also a great time for reading and self-improvement, keeping in mind that personal evolution feeds the evolution of the whole.  We are more idealistic during this time, more interested in what the future holds and how we can shape it, so now is a good time to take a more active stand on what matters to us.
