Is It the End or the Beginning?

Posted on

Sun conjunct Mercury conjunct Ceres conjunct Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn today and tomorrow. The most tremendous achievements require the most tremendous work. Halfway only gets you halfway. Those of us who’ve walked with integrity by taking responsibility for our actions, decisions, and failures are reaping rewards that have come through great effort. It’s not easy owning up to the choices we’ve made when they brought us dead ends and losses. But that is necessary if we are to make it through this planetary gauntlet without repercussions. Stop blaming others, stop blaming institutions, stop blaming anything and anyone who isn’t responsible for the limitations and mistakes in your life. The reckoning is upon us. The King is entering the hall where the Lord of Karma, the Lord of the Underworld, the Lady of Gaia, and the Messenger have been discussing our circumstances. What is the King learning from them? How will we know all that is being communicated? What do YOU think they’re talking about? I’m guessing it’s obvious now that we all have to go through hell before we get to heaven, at least proverbially speaking. Where are you now?

Full Moon in Cancer, Friday, January 10, 2020

Posted on

The Full Moon penumbral lunar eclipse at 20° Cancer is Friday, January 10th at 2:22pm EST.

Moon is reflection. It exemplifies the process (phases) of reflecting upon ourselves, showing then hiding from us the entirety of who we are. Our undigested emotional trauma, our fears, our insecurities, our personal hangups, our inner child that needs affection, tenderness, and security. It is a time when we can fully see and recognize how these stresses in our lives are triggers that keep us in deeply carved ruts of personal plaque. When the light of our Sun fully reflects upon our Moon, all these facets of ourselves are exposed for us to reflect upon in hopes of understanding ourselves better and recognizing how to better nourish ourselves. Thus it is when we should bring to the altar whatever may be holding us back and preventing us from unfolding our wings so that we can let those things go and progress toward a more absolute awakening, not just a fleeting one. This Full Moon eclipse occurs in its home sign at 20° Cancer, magnifying its value and importance.

There is a caveat, however. As typical as this may seem, and it is typical this time of year, what is not typical is what Moon is opposing. There is a momentous communion of planets in Capricorn right now, magnified Sunday with an exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction (more on that in a future post). Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, Sun, Ceres, Jupiter, and Moon’s south node are all there, convening to play a daunting role in our Full Moon process. Remember, Moon is reflecting light from the Sun, who is assembled with all of these planets in Capricorn. Thus we are approaching a critical moment of reflection upon all the limitations, deaths, lies, failures, boundaries crossed, and inner workings of our darkest experiences and corners we’ve been hiding from and have been hidden from us. We are stripping the layers off into the deepest roots of our foundation in life and recognizing it for the first time. All the decisions, the reasons (or lack thereof) for our choices, and how they led us to where we are. Because of the austere and unyielding influence of the Capricorn congregation, this will make for a rather painful attempt to honor and process our Cancerian traumas and insecurities.

It would be best to plan a quiet weekend in order to respect our boundaries and nurture our personal space, making plenty of time for reflection, affection, dissemination, and integration. Let what light there is shine in from the fringes and illuminate your weary soul. What exactly needs to be released, or gained, in our lives in order to achieve the transformation necessary to unfold our glorious wings of triumph? This is a balancing act of honoring our greatest strengths while forgiving our greatest weaknesses. Don’t let the geopolitical drama engulf you in depression and anxiety. Love and healing and evolution begin in our hearts and in the hearts of our loved ones at home and in our community.

Mars moved into Sagittarius overnight, and Mercury is conjunct Moon’s South Node in Capricorn. Take heed of Mercury’s counsel today. He has indispensable knowledge for us from the growing Capricorn round table. Messages we’ve been ignoring for quite some time now. Mars in Sagittarius brings renewed stamina, drive, and excitement for what is to come, as terrifying as it may have seemed lately. The changes we’ve been going through haven’t been easy, which is why we haven’t changed some things we know we should yet, but our quiet inner spirit knows the value and opportunities that await when we do finally appease those insistent gods. There is a lasting vitality to Mars in Sagittarius. One in which we can deliver the goods we’ve been meaning to. It is a primal force driving and inspiring us to expand far beyond the limitations we have been up against in the past few months. The daunting collapse and painful rebuild of our lives that has been in process just became a little more understandable. We are beginning to recognize the value of loss and the opportunities that arise from it, albeit gradually. Place your goals in front of you and don’t veer off course. Mars insists we take the chances we’ve been meaning to take!
