Astrosalon will return the first week of January.
will find below pertinent astrological information between December 18 –
for all of you a bright and cheerful holiday season and of course a wonderful
Astrosalon is going on a small winter break during the holidays.
wanted to post the astrology insights for the next couple of weeks so you have
a road map.
in the New Phase of Sag from December 18th until December 22.
This focus: Are you feeling the need to find your
truth? What is your truth? What are your beliefs? How are you moving forward? How are you putting your arrow up in the sky
and aiming for a target? How are you
inspired and how are you offering inspiration?
enters Capricorn (see separate post)
conjunct Saturn. Negativity and
pessimism serve whom and how?
Focus on: What are you learning about your friends? What
are you learning though your like minded groups? Where are you finding your elevated
thinking? Who is bringing it out in you? What are you learning from others and how do
they bring out your uniqueness? How are
you learning the value of breaking out of normal thinking?
12/22: Mercury direct 8:50pm and together we say,
“hurray.” (see separate post)
12/24: Venus enters Capricorn
12/25: Venus conjunct Saturn: Serious about love and money. Practical approach to values.
Focus on: What actions are you taking that support self? What actions are you taking that speak to
your independence? What actions are you
taking that are spirited? What actions
are you taking that speak to breaking out?
What actions are you taking that set you off on some new beginning?
Mars Trine Neptune: Actions based
on faith and spirit reward new growth.
How are you refining your finances? How are you refining your resources? How are you refining your banking? How are you refining your ‘stick-to-it-ness’? How are you refining your practicality?
Focus on: Full Moon in Cancer. Our emotions are up. Our family is up. Our cozy is up. Our tenderness is up. Our thin-skinned is up. Our snappiness is up. What are we doing about all of it? For a more detailed report on Cancer Full
Visit Astrology King, he has done a very thoughtful report.
Uranus direct (9:10am) 24 Aries 34 (see
the Sag New Moon, the Sun & Moon trine Uranus in Aries. Surprises that inspire could bring joy and
freedom. For 29 days of the Sag lunar
cycle we may see and feel liberation in a curious moment. During the period you may feel inclined to do
something out of the norm. See if it
broadens your world and adds excitement and inspiration or optimism. Perhaps the liberation of being a straight
(as an arrow) shooter will open you up in new ways. And moments
of independence can be invigorating and set up a new belief system.
interesting we are getting this trine with Uranus on the New Moon since it is
one of the last goodies we can get from Uranus before it moves into Taurus next
spring. On January 2, 2018 Uranus will
turn direct at 24 Aries 34 during the Cancer Full Moon. The Aries energy stokes independence and
moving forward by our own initiative. Given
it is happening during our Cancer Full Moon our emotions may be speaking to us
in a real gut level way about changes we need to make. It could be very hard to ignore those desires
and of course the question is—should we even ignore them? Uranus in Aries like its fellow fire sign
Sagittarius speaks to truth and independence. How do we step out from our family, partner,
friends, associates, neighbors to put our self forward? What have you learned since it turned
retrograde in July. Go here to consider
the Uranus process and how it impacted you in the last five months. http://tracyastrosalon.blogspot.com/2017/07/
this information of independence to its fullest because you may need it when
Uranus goes into Taurus. Just sayin’.
turned retrograde on Dec 3 and for three weeks our mental focus has been on our
beliefs. It may not be a case of waking
up each morning and asking, “What do I believe?” In fact --probably not. But more it is a
case of experiencing a moment or a thought or an observation where we think
something is right or wrong. A string
of these moments speaks to our beliefs.
Now with the retrograde concluding have we considered what beliefs work? During retrograde did we bump into beliefs
that maybe no longer serve us? Have we started
to realize our life is not in alignment with our inner truth? How are our judgments keeping us small? Is there a new you who wants to come forward
but silly opinions are getting in the way?
And what about our prejudices how are they keeping us away from a higher
good? Not just with other people but higher good for us?
around generosity may have been considered during this period. What does it mean to be generous? As the giver and as the recipient? And how are we big? What are our thoughts on being ‘big’? Do we judge it?
have we been inspired? Where or who has
provided a light for us? Did we feel a
little extra joy? What inspired it?
finally, like all Mercury retrogrades, we could have had miscommunication or
misplaced things or broken things appear that suddenly had to be repaired –
Sigh. Yes, that part of Mercury retrograde
will be over. And together we say, “Phew!”

2020 7:37pm Saturn Retrograde re-enters Cap
2020 12:04 am Saturn re-enters Aquarius
after the new moon Saturn moves into Capricorn where it will be for the next
two and half years. Saturn is comfortable in Capricorn since it is
a home sign. Saturn with its legendary
rings likes to pull in the reins and get serious the minute it transits a sign. In Capricorn issues around business, career,
economy, infrastructure, government (lots of Capricorn in politicians), aged
community, traditions and conservation take front stage.
years ago, the last Saturn in Capricorn 1988-1991 followed right on the heels
of the 1987 economic crash. And in 1929
Saturn was in Cap for half of the year then it retrograded back into Sag and
while it was at the Galactic Center (note that!) we had the 1929 crash, which
activated the Great Depression. Saturn helped focus people to do hard work
while the world struggled. Actually the
hard work and struggle is exactly what Saturn in Capricorn likes to do And
you don’t need to be a Rhode Scholar to see there is great work in front of the
world at this time. I do wonder if and
what seeds were planted in the last month when Saturn went over the GC and how
will we spend the next couple years perhaps working on it?
talk a lot about Saturn in Capricorn for the next three years especially as it
heads towards Pluto in 2020 but when I poked around on my ephemeris I see that
the last time Saturn was on Pluto in Capricorn was January 1518 and more to the
point--- in the run up to the conjunction during that fall of 1517 Martin
Luther started the Protestant Reformation.
Also in the run up the first European dignitary met the Ming Chinese
officials. What will we be building towards
something between now and 2020? A new reformation? Something important in the international
community? Who knows but we will talking
about it going forward.
