New Moon in Capricorn

“Use this new moon to clarify your priorities and goals. Love and respect your body’s needs. Listen to the yearnings of your soul.” Stephanie Austin
The New Moon at 19 Capricorn is at 8:30 pm EST Saturday January 9th. The sign of Capricorn governs mastery over the laws of the material plane. This Mercury retrograde period is a good time to rethink how your thoughts and beliefs are related to what you are trying to create in the world. Do you believe on a deep level that you can do it? Do you support yourself through moments of doubt and fear? Is there an undermining lack of clarity in your vision?
Much of the activity we are seeing in the outer world around us has a dismantling quality to it – the old ways are being dismantled to make way for the new – not an easy, comfortable or one step process. This dismantling influence is present in your inner world as well and with Uranus involved taking an innovative approach to what is possible is indicated. We all have seen how dramatically the world has changed with the advent of cyber technologies –  an area ruled by revolutionary, innovative and futuristic Uranus.
Venus is now making a benefical aspect to Uranus as she moves up to an exact trine in fire on January 12. The Sun is making a good aspect to Jupiter as well – making this a time when more guidance and vision is available about the way forward.
With Jupiter’s transit near the North Node it is a good time to let go of the pain of the path to open a more expansive path forward.
One of the Sabian symbols for the New Moon is, “The king of the fairies approaching his domain.”
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.

Pluto Stations Retrograde

“The sun, with all the planets revolving around it and depending on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as though it had nothing else in the universe to do.” Gallileo Galilei

The Sabian symbol for Pluto’s retrograde station on Friday April 12 is, “A student of nature lecturing, revealing little known aspects of life.” This retrograde period will last through late September. Wherever Pluto is transiting in your chart is an area where significant transformation is occurring in your life. There are levels of awareness about this process which can be revealed over time. From now through September provides an excellent time frame to heighten awareness about “little known” aspects of your life involved in the transformational process and where this may be leading you.
There is a quickening of the evolutionary trajectory of the planet now and it has both a personal and collective nature to it.

Friends – If you are curious about where Pluto is transiting in your chart and what this means in your life I am offering brief (15 minutes for $40, 30 minutes for $75.00) readings on individual charts. Get in touch if you would like to book some time.
