Jupiter & Neptune January 13

Jupiter & Neptune 
January 13, 2019
1:57 pm EST 

There will be three exact squares this year between Jupiter and Neptune (Jan 13, June 16 and Sept 21).   This is a call back to 2010 when Jupiter and Neptune were in conjunction.  On the personal front go back to 2010 and see if anything comes up from then that now needs fresh eyes.    Globally speaking, too much optimism will be squashed by disillusion.   We all need to avoid getting caught up in some kind of righteous undertow.  Things will dissolve in front of the world’s eyes.   Zealots and zealotry could be problematic.  When or if your own beliefs get shaken then going in deep and finding a connection to your own maker will be critical.   It is interesting that the first hit takes place during this super pragmatic Capricorn lunar phase.   Although this aspect is tough it does have the gift of creativity and the ability to build bridges to other circles.   Keep the accent on humanitarianism and that should help.  Just don’t get lost too far in any area.

Uranus Direct -- Here we Goooooooooooooo!

Uranus Direct 
January 7, 3:36am EST 
28 Aries 36

Uranus is retrograde for about five months every year so when it stations direct or retrograde it is not a big deal.  However, this time something different is going on.   Uranus is the planet of great disruptions.   Late last spring Uranus moved into Taurus where it began its 7-8 year cycle.   Then in August it turned retrograde and eventually returned to Aries.  The return to Aries was asking all of us to find our inner warrior one more time.   Aries desire to survive is paramount.   The last time Uranus was retrograde in Aries, before it made its final move into Taurus, was August 1934 – January 1935.  How many people felt compelled at that time to move?  Something in them said “My survival and my family’s survival means we need to do something.”   Obviously, people who had a high antenna knew they needed to get out of Europe.  In America others took their families out of the Dustbowl.  All around the world people were shifting and moving.  A lot went from rural to urban.     Now it is our time to be in the hopper, Uranus changing direction could send beeps to each of us.   Be aware of any thoughts or insights or feelings that you need to do something and put it on the fast track.  It could be important.   Uranus will return to Taurus on March 9 where it will stay until 2025.  We will talk a lot more about Uranus in Taurus going forward.   But you should know that Artificial Intelligence will move far and wide during the next seven years and will impact the work place.   Food will also be impacted with important changes and fluxes as will real estate.  Stock Markets will go for huge rides and currency will be impacted.   If you get any sense of what your plan B needs to be during these final months of Uranus in Aries consider it as it might turn into plan A between now and 2025. Finally, there is one area that will certainly be front and center during this period:  Climate Change.   We crossed the Rubicon some time ago but for many of us this final retrograde of Uranus (since August) brought a new awareness and fear that we need to do something in our personal lives and globally in the face of climate changes.  Where are you living?  How will it be impacted?  How are you feeling compelled to protect Earth?   We will see and talk more about Uranus in Taurus as we slog it out together in the coming years.

Astrology Week of Dec 31

Last Quarter Moon Phase
December 29, 2018 
4:434am EST 

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense. And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer” 

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:
What actions are you taking that speak to your partnerships? What action are you taking that speak to finding balance? What do you need to do more of that you have neglected?  How will support bigger goals?   Where do you need to negotiate?   How is negotiating inspired?   

Special Focus:
12/31: Mars enters Aries.   Fight or flight.    Breaking out of old routines.  New ground.   Actions that bring on Independence. 

Balsamic Moon Phase

January 1, 2019 
9:06pm EST 

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new.  

Focus on How are you releasing your controlling nature?  How are you releasing your black and white nature?  How are you releasing the stuff that is ‘gunking’ you up? 

Special Focus:
1/1: Sun conjunct Saturn.  Discipline.  Measured.  Taking a look and figuring out the best move that is smart and sane.  

1 4: Mercury enters Capricorn 

NEW MOON January 5, 2019   8:28pm EST 15 Cap 25

Cancer Full Moon

Cancer Full Moon
December 22, 2018
12:48 PM EST
0 Cancer 49

The Full Moon in the sign Cancer arrives within 24 hours of the Winter Solstice.   There is also the Ursids meteor shower adding fireworks to the sky with up to a dozen or so shooting stars per hour-- depending on your location.  

In the Full Moon chart the Sun trines Uranus who sextiles the Moon while Chiron quares Sun and squares the Moon.   There may be lessons during this three-day phase.   Lessons both personally and globally.   

The moon at zero degrees is at the beginning of the Cancer journey, which means the lesson could be new and somehow relates to roots, family, emotions, mom, food and things that are cozy.  Are you attracted or repelled by the Cancerian energy?   Will you put on your hard crab shell and hide your feelings?  Or will you bring out your pinchers and go snip snip.      Chiron in Pisces is self wounding and challenges our faith, “Why can’t I just forgive ____?”  This is a question that may come up.    There could be some hideous example in the world that shows the lowest level of humanity. Will we be able to forgive them for what they did even if it has nothing to do with us?    Luckily Uranus provides some uplighting thoughts and creativity.  Even in the middle of a tough moment we may have a thought or impulse that is just pure genius.   

During this full moon our emotions will be up pretty high and we will process a lot but we also will connect some dots that we never thought about before and bam, like a magic we put something together that heals. 

That is what we call a good thing.

This Week in Astrology

We move into Gibbous Moon on December 19.  In this case the focus will be on practicality. 

Gibbous Moon
December 19, 2018 
2:52 am EST  

We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions.  

Focus on: 

How are refining your practical nature?  How are you refining your disciplined nature? How are you refining your ability to be ‘sure & steady’ to win the race?   How is this process inspiring? 

Special focus: 
12/20 Sun Trine Uranus.  Joy and creativity come together.  Fun, inspiration and break through that speaks to new goals. 

12/21 Venus Trine Neptune.  Intuition is high.  Love and money mean something when they inspire kindness

12/21 Mercury conjunct Jupiter. Crazy big ideas, big thinking.  Big conversations.   Maybe a bit exaggerated. 

12/21Sun enter Capricorn.  Happy Solstice!
