…and it’s time to take that leap of faith
After just over six weeks in the sign of Scorpio, which it rules together with Pluto, and perhaps a little worse for wear, at least from a psychological point of view, Mars takes on the clothes of the philosopher (and sometimes as the self-righteous prig) as he enters the optimistic, truth-loving sign of Sagittarius where he will stay until the 16th of February when he enters Capricorn.
Here in Sagittarius he will be able to express his energy in a more open way with less emphasis on the psychological battle field.
On a global level we [...]
….a suddenly serious mood
On the 29th of December an out-of-bounds (23rd December-11th January 2020) Mercury barges out of Sagittarius with more than the usual bluntness and awkwardness that often characterises his sojourn there and lands in Capricorn.
After fun-loving Sagittarius this will certainly hit him with force, dampening his mood and deepening his thoughts and encouraging all of us to think, plan and talk in a much more serious fashion.
Mercury in Capricorn is a serious, sensible version of Mercury, very determined and with great concentration which will serve us well as we[...]
The New Moon at 4° 07’ Capricorn is the 3rd of a series of 6 on this degree of the various signs and also the last Solar Eclipse of this decade (antiscion 25°53’ Sagittarius).
The eclipse path will cover the Saudi Arabian Peninsula, southern India, Sumatra, Borneo, Philippines and Guam. ... It will also cover small parts of Eastern Europe, much of Asia, North/West Australia, East Africa, the Pacific and Indian Oceans (1).
According to Bernadette Brady this eclipse belongs to the Saros series “3 South” and concerns “sudden endings of associations with an emotional component [...]
Just in time for the festive season, and less than 24 hours before the Winter solstice, Venus enters the cool, collected and independent sign of Aquarius.
In this sign Venus wants the liberty to come and go as it pleases but this doesn’t necessarily mean unfaithfulness, just that equal rights and a seemingly no-strings-attached attitude need to be maintained for relationships to function.
It’s the Venus placement par excellence for bed-buddies in a mix-and-match of friends becoming lovers and vice versa since Venus here is rather emotionally distant and has an attitude for open and [...]
…focus is what we need
There will be a Full Moon at 19°51’ Gemini on the 12th of December (antiscion 10° 08’ Cancer). As we all know, full moons are when matters that have been simmering under the surface emerge to be dealt with. This lunation occurs on the 3rd-9th house axis (Gemini-Sagittarius) in traditional astrology; how I think vs how they think, short trips vs long journeys, reason vs intuition etc. Both signs are concerned with gathering and spreading knowledge as well as education and travel.
This is a restless, mentally active Full Moon, the last plenilune of this year,[...]
