NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS
There will be a New Moon at 12°19’ of Aquarius, a fixed, Air sign (antiscion 17°41’ Scorpio). This is the fourth in a series of five New Moons in a row at 12° of the relative monthly sign.
This lunation has all the planets enclosed within the Taurus-Scorpio nodal axis perhaps indicating that our destiny is in our own hands. Yet another lunation chart with a heavy Earth element to it and no Fire. Could it be that the practicality of our plans (whatever they may be) is bogged down by the retrograde motion of Mercury which is however [...]
VENUS STATIONS DIRECT
Venus terminates her (apparent) retrograde motion and stations direct at 11°04’ Capricorn (antiscion 18°56’ Sagittarius). Venus can now be seen in the sky as a morning star.
Venus in Capricorn is “proper” as well as ambitious and perhaps even calculating. Social propriety and etiquette, at least on a public level, mean a lot to this rather ambitious placement for Venus, less so perhaps in the bedroom, but that is a side that Venus Capricorn would prefer to keep private!
Venus’s contours are finely chiselled and with a distinct “no frills attached”[...]
OOB MARS ENTERS CAPRICORN
The marathon runner...
Mars is still OOB as it enters Capricorn, the sign of its exaltation, it will remain OOB until the 10th of February when it will be at 12° 43’ Capricorn.
“Pure” Mars in Capricorn characteristics include ambition, discipline, persistent and even patience which is usually a feature not associated with this planet. On the harsher side it can show lack of empathy, recklessness as well as rigidity and inhibition as it sometimes struggles to contain itself.
The OOB status brings out the best and the worst of Mar’s characteristics.[...]
LUNAR NODES ENTER TAURUS-SCORPIO AXIS
The transiting nodes are reality checks on our soul path…
On January 18th, the Lunar Nodes will enter the Taurus/Scorpio axis after having been in the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity since May 2020. So, the modality will change from Mutable (Air-Fire) to Fixed (Earth-Water). With the North Node transiting the sign of Taurus there could be potential talents for handling finances as you learn new value systems which also include those revolving around your relationships with loved ones, friends and associates since your emotional security will probably [...]
OOB FULL MOON IN CANCER
On the 17-18 January (depending on where you find yourself in the world) there will be an OOB Full Moon at 27°50’ Cancer (antiscion 2°10’ Gemini), nurturing qualities could be at their best or, on the contrary, at their worst. The Full Moon will occur only a few hours before the direct station of Uranus and the entrance of the Lunar nodes on the Taurus-Scorpio axis.
Full Moons are when matters climax, they are “now or never” moments regarding any projects we have initiated or intentions we have set at the preceding New Moon fourteen days ago.
The Sun [...]
URANUS STATIONS DIRECT
The road ahead seems quite bumpy….
Uranus ends its yearly, five-month retrograde period at 10°49’ Taurus (antiscion 19°11’ Leo) on the 18th January and finds itself immediately in a sesquiquadrate aspect with Mars (25°49’ Sag- 10°49’ Taurus) a friction that needs to be acted upon with enthusiastic Mars tending towards a Sagittarian over-achievement and Uranus wanting to enjoy life within the limits imposed by Taurus.
Just three hours later the Lunar nodes also enter the Taurus-Scorpio axis (more about that in another post).
So, what might we [...]
MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN AQUARIUS
Time to rethink plans on a more humanitarian basis
Mercury makes its first retrograde station of the year at 10°20’ Aquarius (antiscion 19°40 Scorpio), over the last 12 days (since it entered Aquarius) we should have gotten used to this rather aloof, Air sign Mercury. The retrograde period will end on 3rd February when Mercury will be at 24°22’ Capricorn (antiscion 05°38’ Sagittarius).
When the retrograde period of Mercury occurs in an Air sign, rationality reigns as we may feel the need to examine our relationships from a less [...]
