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, May 1st, 2017: Unquiet Moods

Early this morning the Moon in Cancer opposed Pluto in Capricorn, increasing our emotional awareness of the hidden forces in our lives and intensifying our feelings.  We were instinctively drawn to experiences that stirred up the deepest parts of our subconscious, causing us to act impulsively and compulsively, and may have found ourselves in conflict with those closest to us as a result.  Our most complex emotions may have worked their way to the surface during this time, including those we would rather have remained buried, such as jealousy, guilt, or a desire for control over the actions and emotions of others.  Since we were not likely to be thinking clearly at this time it was not a good morning for drawing any conclusions about what we were feeling, though thinking about the events of the morning with a clearer head later on may have yielded useful insights about parts of our psyches we don’t normally confront.  For those still asleep during this time, our dreams may have been disruptive and disturbing, and upon awakening we may have had a rough start to the morning as a result.

Toward midday the Moon in Cancer squared Mercury retrograde in Aries, putting our thoughts and emotions at odds, and making it difficult to communicate with others without conflict or misunderstanding.  We may have wanted very much to express our feelings during this time but found it difficult to do so in ways that others could relate to.  Or we may have held back on expressing what we felt but found ourselves behaving in antagonistic ways toward others as a result of our frustrations regarding what we felt unable to express.  And since others around us were experiencing similar frustrations, the early afternoon could have been a very tense time indeed for all concerned.  Our opinions were likely to fluctuate greatly during this time as well, increasing the likelihood of misunderstandings and confusion, and it was not a good time for decisiveness as a result.

A short while later the Moon in Cancer squared Uranus in Aries, increasing the volatility of our emotions and our instinctive reactions.  We may have felt restless and uneasy, easily upset, and may have found outer circumstances mirroring our inner disquiet through sudden changes and distressing interactions with others.  A sense of contrariness was stirred up by this aspect, leading us into disagreements solely because we are fed up with the status quo, wanting to upset the apple cart just to see what will happen.  We were likely to feel a bit reckless and experimental, aggressively devil-may-care and craving excitement and something, anything different, and anyone making emotional demands on us or otherwise restricting our freedom during this time was not likely to be looked upon kindly, even and perhaps especially those to whom we normally are closest.  This period started a void-of-course period lasting until much later this evening, so while that might help to minimize the long-term damage it also decreases our ability to think clearly, and we would do well to stick to our routines during this time, as the frustration and impulsiveness of the Moon/Uranus square wears off.

The Moon in Cancer trines Chiron in Pisces during the void-of-course period, increasing our capacity to reflect on the reasons for our distress as the night progresses.  We are in a better position to communicate what we feel with others during this time, especially when it comes to our sensitive quirks and hurt feelings, and we can have more compassion for both ourselves and others close to us tonight.  We are also better able to learn from our mistakes now, especially those involving deep emotions and our friends and family, and there is a real capacity for healing our wounds in the company of others tonight.

Late tonight the Moon enters Leo, moving away from the moodiness and sensitivity of the past couple of days and into a more exuberant and expressive state.  This is the time in the lunar cycle when our unconscious need is to be seen and heard, a time when our feelings take center stage and our instincts urge us to assert our own importance.  While this can lead some to become overbearing, it can also increase our passion, our creativity, and our conscious awareness of what we feel and our right to feel it.  We are far less likely to hide our feelings in the shadows during this transit, so emotions that we’ve been keeping under wraps will tend to out themselves now.  Our pride comes to the forefront now, and that can be a good thing, so long as we are willing to be gracious with others similarly feeling their own worth.  Thankfully, a leonine Moon is more magnanimous, more benevolent, and more willing to bestow the light of our own best feelings on those who do not tread too thoughtlessly on our domain.  Woe betide those we feel wronged by during this time, however!  The lion is not known for mercy toward its foes, and even the mousiest among us may roar now if we feel so stirred.  Still, most of us would much rather indulge in enjoyable feelings during this transit, and it can be a wonderful time for socializing and sharing what is best in ourselves with others in whom we appreciate similar expressions of magnificence and pride.

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 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.

Astrology Update, March 7th, 2017: Through the Waves

This morning the Moon in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces in the wee hours of the morning, potentially enhancing our dreams with the combination of Cancerian and Piscean emotional sensitivity and psychic abilities.  We would do well to write down whatever we remember of our dreams as soon after waking as possible, as we may learn much about our own emotional landscape by reflecting on our dreams today.

Still in the early morning hours, the Moon in Cancer squares Venus in Aries.  Since Venus has just recently turned retrograde, she is already on unsteady footing, especially due to being in the  reflective, introspective mode of retrograde in such an active and driven sign.  Squaring the Moon in Cancer just highlights her uncertainty now, adding Cancerian moodiness and self-protectiveness into the mix, leading to potential insecurity and standoffishness or even outright hostility in our early morning dealings with others – a classic case of waking up on the wrong side of the bed.  Since this is a lunar influence and therefore acts on an unconscious level, we would do well to recognize that plenty of people around us are likely to be testy without knowing why, and take steps to guard our own emotional well-being accordingly.

Toward mid-day the Moon in Cancer trines the Sun in Pisces, creating greater ease and flow in emotional and intuitive matters, increasing our sympathy and willingness to assist and support each other.  This adds to the residual effects of yesterday’s Sun/Mercury conjunction, and may bolster those of us in healing and service professions accordingly.  This time favors nurturing ourselves and our loved ones, exercising compassionate listening in order to understand our emotional connections and reactions and strengthen our bonds with those we feel kinship with.  This is an excellent time to foster community, particularly with those who bolster us creatively and spiritually, and this influence may also help us to find common ground with those we had not previously recognized as sharing such connections.

The Moon in Cancer trines Mercury in Pisces shortly thereafter, further emphasizing the qualities of both the Moon/Sun trine and yesterday’s Sun/Mercury conjunction, and increasing our capacity to communicate what we feel to others, as well as helping us to attune our thoughts and feelings, heightening our intuition and sensitivity.  Our thoughts may well turn to matters of home and family at this time, but may also benefit from Cancerian business sense now.  This is a good time for communications that benefit from a delicate touch, and breaking the ice in social settings may be easier now.

This afternoon, our emotions take on a degree of intensity as the Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn, pitting what we feel against the great impersonal forces of our lives that affect our careers, reputations, and long-term goals.  We may find ourselves feeling defensive now, or struggling to maintain emotional control.  We may find our moods hijacked by the interference of others, and need to guard against getting sucked into power struggles.  Now is definitely a time to step aside, take a deep breath, and channel the power of what we feel into the energy we need to get done what we can, while recognizing that even if this influence throws us off course during this time that derailment is still only temporary.

This evening the Moon in Cancer squares first Jupiter in Libra then Uranus in Aries in short succession, highlighting the lingering effects of last week’s Jupiter/Uranus opposition that is still in close orb and will be continuing to influence us through mid-March.  Our emotions and reactions tonight are caught up in the tug-of-war between the personal and the societal, the desire for aggressive and radical action in service of personal freedom versus the desire for peace and social harmony at all costs, and we may find our interpersonal relationships affected as a result.  We may be prone to sudden outbursts of emotion or mood fluctuations, and Jupiter’s touch is likely to make everything feel larger than life.  This is a T-square formation with the Moon acting as the release point between Jupiter and Uranus, our emotions and instincts becoming the pressure valve for the personal and societal tensions pitted against each other.  We are navigating stormy waters during this time and the more sensitive among us may be hard-pressed to make it through without the support of our more stalwart companions.

Late tonight Mercury in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, giving some support to our ability to communicate about the deepest, darkest parts of our experience now, and helping us further in shedding thought and communication patterns that no longer serve us.  This influence may also aid our facility to communicate with and about those in power.  Secrets may be revealed now, and occult matters are favored at this time.  For the magically inclined among us this is a good time for spell-working, particularly in relation to correcting power imbalances and defending the powerless from abuses of power.  Of course, this applies in more mundane realms as well.  This is a good time for tending to legal and monetary matters, and those working in the intelligence community may gain a boost at this time, as well as those working as detectives or researchers.  Tonight we may gain deeper insight into our own long-term goals and how we may fulfill our ambitions while being of service to humanity.

This aspect is followed by the Moon in Cancer trining Chiron in Pisces, putting us emotionally in-touch with our deepest hurts and damaging patterns in a deeply supportive way, so that we may use what we feel to help purge the poison of old traumas, and as a result share both greater vulnerability and greater closeness with those whom we love.  This tempest-tossed night comes to a close with a potential gift of deep, intuitive wisdom to dream on.
