Expect the Unexpected! Uranus goes direct

Uranus - Iceland Storm

 

Uranus goes direct on Thurs 14 Jan, the day after the New Moon, at 6 degrees Taurus..

Uranus is the Great Awakener, shaking up any sense we have of security or permanence (and how!).

Uranus takes us into unexplored territory, and as it turns direct again for the next 7 months, that’s where we’re heading.

Uranus brings new insights and a higher level of awareness, as well as changes, yet it can be very disruptive – the changes are often unexpected, shaking things to their very foundation, sometimes even bringing down the whole structure in the urge to bring about revolutionary change.

In the words of Leonard Cohen “there is a crack, a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”.

The more conscious we can be, and the more open we are to the changes that the Universe is demanding of us, the less disruptive this energy is likely to be.

🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

🌟 New Moon in Capricorn 2021 🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

New Moon in Capricorn: Wed 13 Jan 2021 at 3pm AEST at 23 degrees Capricorn

Full Moon in Leo: Fri 29 Jan 2021 at 5.16am AEST at 9 degrees Leo (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching:  Jupiter and Saturn are visible low in the western evening sky just after sunset – but only for a couple of weeks before they disappear into the light of the Sun.
Mars the red planet is high overhead at sunset.
Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn sky as the Morning Star, gradually lower each morning in the eastern sky until by the end of this lunar month, she will have disappeared into the light of the Sun.
..

A powerful New Moon falls in Capricorn on Wed 13 Jan.  This is the absolute best time to make your New Year’s resolutions for 2021 as the energy of this Capricorn New Moon gives you the self-discipline and determination to carry out the incremental steps you need to take during the year to achieve your goals.  Pluto is part of this New Moon energy, so any resolutions you set now will be especially powerful.

A New Moon always represents the beginning of a new cycle in some part of your life.  The Capricorn New Moon invites renewed focus on self-discipline, goal-setting, improving time management and introducing more structure into your life – all in the service of moving forwards on your chosen path.  Remember the image of Capricorn the goat, climbing slowly but steadily up the mountain, one step at a time, guaranteed to reach the summit.

mountain goatCapricorn is an Earth sign, grounded, sensible and practical – excellent at dealing with material reality.  The sign is ruled by Saturn, the ultimate taskmaster who sets firm boundaries, exercises self-authority and is cautious. The downside  of Capricorn (every sign has its downside) is the tendency for caution to become fear, leading in some cases to freezing (petrified means turned to stone) so that no action is taken. Saturn can also be a fierce inner critic, sowing self-doubt that can stifle those Capricorn ambitions. Caution is fine, yet make sure you continue to move forwards.  It’s time now to accept full personal responsibility for your life, and to realise that YOU are the only one who can make the necessary changes for your life to move in the direction you want.

Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart is the area of life that will be most strongly affected by this New Moon – for example, if it is in your 6th house, this is an opportunity to bring more self-discipline into your daily routine and health regime; if it falls in the 2nd, this will apply to your finances.  If you are not sure where Capricorn falls in your birth chart, think of the area of your life that could most benefit from some self-discipline right now – you’ll probably tune into it intuitively!

If your birthday is close to this New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If 23 degrees Capricorn is strong in your chart, or if any of your planets fall at this degree, a significant new cycle is starting in the part of your life represented by that planet, eg relationships for Venus.  You may well have had a difficult time of it over the last twelve months, as this is almost exactly the degree of the Saturn-Pluto and Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in Jan 2020, and Pluto is still very close to this degree.  It’s as if the Universe is telling you that finally you can leave the energies of the last year behind and you can at last move forwards.

Remember to create your New Moon intentions (and your Resolutions for 2021) within 24 hours of this New Moon.  The intentions you set now will be particularly powerful because of the conjunction with Pluto.  The New Moon is exact at 3pm Queensland time (AEST).

Full Moon in Cancer 2020

Full Moon in Cancer 2020

 

Full Moon

Full Moon in Cancer  – Wed 30 Dec 2020 at 1.28pm Queensland time (AEST) 

 

The Full Moon in Cancer on Wed 30 Dec invites us to find a balance between the deep emotional connection of family and the outer, worldly achievement that is found in our work life.

This Full Moon also highlights our emotional attachment to the past, so don’t be surprised if strong feelings get stirred up again, giving us the opportunity to finally heal, let go and release the past.  This is a good time for us to reassess our unconscious, “autopilot” responses, and to change any behaviour that is no longer appropriate.

The Full Moon falls at 8 degrees Cancer – use your birth chart to find which part of your life is under the spotlight right now.

The Full Moon is exact at 1.28pm AEST, so the previous evening is the best night for Full Moon celebrations!!!

Shift of the Ages – the Great Mutation 2020

The SHIFT OF THE AGES – the Great Mutation 2020

5-3-light-frequency-essence-journey

.

Jupiter and Saturn meet up at zero degrees Aquarius on Tues 22 Dec 2020 at 4.20am Queensland time (AEST)

.

The SHIFT OF THE AGES

1  The players: Saturn and Jupiter move into Aquarius

Saturn has been in his home sign of Capricorn for the last 2.5 years, a pretty serious time of it all round, although he had a brief escape to Aquarius this year – you might remember that period when the oppressive nature of Covid seem to lift?  It was when we discovered that the air was suddenly beautifully clear, people could see the Himalayas for the first time in ages, rivers and streams ran clear once again, and the world seemed to pause and reassess everything – as if to say “Wow, this is what the future could be like?” 

Saturn had moved into Aquarius, an Air Sign, and it was like a breath of fresh air in our very constricted Covid existence.  Because the planes weren’t flying, we had to fall back on our local communities and rely on local produce to feed us – this sense of community is very Aquarian, part of the energy we’re moving into now.

Saturn only stayed a few months in Aquarius before he had to return to Capricorn for the last time.  The heaviness of that return was palpable, taking people back into a more burdened state of being.

Saturn moves into Aquarius for good (well, for the next 2.5 years) on Thurs 17 Dec, and I am sure that once again we’ll feel a lifting of that hugely oppressive energy that has beset us in the last nine months.

Jupiter is hot on Saturn’s heels, moving into Aquarius on Sat 19 Dec, and chasing Saturn down – they’re due to meet for their supremely historic conjunction on Tues 22 Dec at 4.20am AEST – for most writers based in Europe and the US that is of course Mon 21 Dec.  Jupiter is never very happy in Capricorn, and moving into Aquarius will be like a breath of freedom for him.

 

2.  THE GREAT MUTATION – A SHIFT OF THE AGES

Jupiter and Saturn join up for their historic Grand Conjunction just 8 hours after the Solstice, at zero degrees Aquarius.

This is a hugely momentous time, a real Shift of the Ages.

Jupiter and Saturn meet every 20 years, and those cycles in themselves are felt to be of huge significance in the evolution of society.

However there’s a much bigger cycle at work – the 20-year cycles fall in the same element for 240 years, and then there is a Great Mutation where the larger cycle shifts and changes element.  That is what is occurring now.  After the last 240 years of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions falling in Earth signs –  a heavy, solid, materialistic energy that spawned the Industrial Revolution and saw unprecedented exploitation of the Earth’s resources – these conjunctions are moving into the lighter, connected energy of Air signs, beginning with Aquarius. The last time we had a Great Mutation into Air signs was 1226, so you can see why it’s such a historic time.

In many ways we could argue that this shift now is the beginning of the much-heralded Age of Aquarius – there are many ways you can define that, but this would certainly be one of them (that plus Pluto moving into Aquarius in 2024, which will certainly add to the Aquarian nature of the times).  There is so much more I could say about this, about the implications for us and our lives (which I’ll go into in my Paradigm Shift webinar in January) but for now, know that this is truly a Shift of the Ages, that it’s amazing that we’re here to witness this, and that things are going to get much, much better!!!  It is so exciting!!!

The Capricorn Solstice 2020

The Capricorn Solstice: Mon 21 Dec 2020 at 8.02pm Queensland time (AEST)

..

Equinox

The December Solstice is when the Sun reaches its southernmost position overhead at the Tropic of Capricorn (remember that from geography in primary school? 😀).

Guess what, the Tropic of Capricorn takes its name from Astrology, from the fact that the Sun moves into the tropical zodiac sign of Capricorn on this day.

The word ‘solstice’ comes from Latin meaning ‘the Sun stands still’. If you follow the position of sunrise along the horizon during the year, you’ll notice it changes with the seasons. At the solstices in Dec and June, the Sun reaches its furthest point in one direction before returning towards the centre point again.

Many ancient sacred sites were aligned with the sun’s position at the solstice, creating a magical effect at the solstice sunrise, including standing stone circles such as Stonehenge in England and the Newgrange monument in Ireland.

Solstices have always been traditional mid-season times of celebration and feasting.

In the southern hemisphere, the December Solstice is the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year and the shortest night, traditional Midsummer time. You’ll notice this more the further south you go, where the days will be very long. After the solstice, days get shorter as we start to move towards autumn.

In the northern hemisphere the seasons are reversed, so the December Solstice is of course the Winter Solstice, traditional Midwinter time, the shortest day and the longest night, after which the days start to lengthen again and the world returns from the darkness of winter – quite literally in Northern Europe where the hours of daylight are very short indeed at Midwinter! This was the origin of the Celtic festival of Yule, signifying the return of the light.

This year the Capricorn solstice falls on Mon 21 Dec 2020 at 8.02pm Queensland time (AEST).

Have a wonderful Solstice, whether you’re celebrating Midsummer or Midwinter! ❤️

Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius 2020

eclipseTotal Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius

.

Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius  Tues 15 Dec 2020, exact at 2.16am Queensland time (AEST) at 23 degrees Sagittarius (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Full Moon in Cancer  Wed 30 Dec 2020, exact at 1.28pm Queensland time (AEST) at 8 degrees Cancer

Skywatching   The amazing sight of Jupiter and Saturn getting closer together in the evening sky is the real show-stealer right now!  They’re visible for a couple of hours after sunset.  Look for the slim crescent of the New Moon emerging a day or two after the solar eclipse – you’ll see the Moon very close to Jupiter and Saturn – below them on Wed 16 Dec, and just above them on Thurs 17 Dec, visible till about 8.30pm when Jupiter and Saturn set.  Mars the red planet is high in the sky during the evening.   Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn sky as the Morning Star.

 ..

These are hugely momentous times we’re living in, and this month is absolutely extraordinary as we move into a new 800-year epoch with the Great Mutation of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on 22 Dec (AEST) – see separate blogpost.

We still have two weeks to go in this current eclipse season – remember to be especially careful as accidents and other mishaps are so  much more common at eclipse time.  Be mindful and stay present!

Do you need to understand the higher purpose of what’s happening in your life right now?  A Personal Insight Astrology Consultation with me provides clarity, insight and guidance, enabling you to transform the challenges you’re facing.  Learn how you can work WITH the Universe!  Book your session now.

..

Sagittarius, the archer

The New Moon in Sagittarius is a total solar eclipse, visible over the southern part of Chile and Argentina – but even when we can’t actually see it, we certainly feel it!!!

The Solar Eclipse New Moon falls in the early morning of Tues 15 Dec AEST (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).  A solar eclipse is an intensified new beginning in some part of your life, so find where it falls in your chart at 23 Sagittarius and tune into the new departure starting for you now.

An eclipsed New Moon in Sagittarius brings a strong burst of enthusiasm for adventure and exploration, as well as the need to enjoy life to the full.  This is a perfect time to start on a spiritual quest, a course of study or overseas travel (if that’s allowed!!!) – anything that expands your horizons. The travel can of course be internal – a spiritual journey, to the truth of who you are.

Sagittarius is a Fire sign, warm and enthusiastic, naturally optimistic and with an undying trust in the Universe.  Sagittarians love to explore and go on adventures, not just for the fun of it, but because they’re also motivated by a quest to discover the meaning of life. Their sign is ruled by Jupiter, which gives them their boundless enthusiasm and confidence – and on the downside (every sign has its downside), a tendency to go over the top, take lots of risks and over-extend themselves, not knowing when or where to stop.

If your birthday is close to this eclipsed New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of an intensely significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If you have a planet at 23 degrees of Sagittarius, this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolizes (eg relationships for Venus).  Donald Trump has his Moon (representing home and emotions) close to this degree – a new beginning indeed!

Your New Moon intentions will be especially powerful this month with the eclipsed New Moon.  Create your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the eclipsed New Moon, which is exact at 2.16am AEST (Queensland time).

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini

Remember that we’re in eclipse season now, in the lead-up to the first of the two eclipses coming soon.  Take extra care at this time!

.

penumbral lunar eclipse

The Full Moon in Gemini on Mon 30 Nov 2020 is a penumbral (half-shadow) lunar eclipse, intensifying the energy of this Full Moon.

A Gemini Full Moon invites us to find a balance between logic and intuitive knowing, between the cold hard facts and what we believe to be true (which seems very relevant to the way the US election has played out!).

This eclipsed Full Moon invites us to integrate both polarities, yet also warns us of being too gullible.

Full Moons tend to bring situations to a head and the lunar eclipse will intensify that.

Meanwhile Venus opposite Uranus in the eclipsed Full Moon chart indicates that the “situations coming to a head” could involve surprises or upsets connected with relationships, friendships or alliances, possibly more secrets revealed!  Stay tuned!

On a personal note, check your birth chart to see which house is under the Full Moon spotlight at 8 degrees Gemini as this is the area of life where matters may well come to fruition or be revealed.

This eclipsed Full Moon is exact at 7.29pm Queensland time (AEST).

Neptune goes direct – Take action on your revised dreams!

NeptuneNeptune goes direct

Take action on your revised dreams!

.

Neptune slows to a standstill ready to turn direct on Sun 29 Nov 2020, allowing us to move forwards again after a five-month period of self-reflection in which we have revisited and maybe revised our dreams and visions for the future.  We may also have revisited our spiritual longing, our urge to transcend 3D reality.

Neptune also symbolises veils of illusion, so hopefully we have become more aware of the ways in which we manage to deceive ourselves, by seeing only what we want to see or believing only what we want to believe.  The cosmic opportunity now is for our vision to be clearer and more connected with Spirit.

Neptune stations at 18 degrees Pisces before it goes direct again, so if you have this point strong in your birth chart, or if you’re born around 9 March, you’ll be feeling a strong urge to transcend reality and dissolve into a state of spiritual oneness.  Meditation and creative pursuits are a great way to channel this energy positively.

If however you’re trying to maintain a left-brain existence, you may well experience this energy as brain meltdown, with difficulty focusing and concentrating.  The urge to escape (negative expression of Neptune) is likely to be strong: at the most extreme end of its spectrum, Neptune entices us into addictive patterns, whether that’s drugs, alcohol or even Netflix (!).  You’ll also be more sensitive than usual to toxins because of Neptune’s influence, so be careful what avenues you choose!

On a brighter note, it’s a great time to take a holiday so you can honour Neptune and indulge your creative and spiritual pursuits.
