Power Struggles, Intensity & Renewal

new moonCarmen Di Luccio – We are having a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13th throughout most of the world and on the night of the 12th in Central to Western North America. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Leo on January 28th/29th.

Capricorn season began on the December 21st solstice, just over three weeks prior to this lunation, and will end on January 19th/20th when Aquarius season begins. However, this New Moon will carry some of the Capricorn energies into the earlier part of Aquarius season. Continue reading “Power Struggles, Intensity & Renewal”

Mars Retrograde In Aries: Revising How We Apply Ourselves

mars retrogradeCarmen Di Luccio – Mars will be in its home sign of Aries throughout the entirety of its retrograde. It has been there since late June (before the pre-retrograde shadow began) and will stay until January 6th/7th, eight weeks after the retrograde ends. Aries is an assertive sign and shares much of the same Mars themes mentioned earlier in the article, they are both hot and fiery energies.

Aries is forward, direct, pioneering, initiating, bold, quick, courageous, competitive, and antagonistic. It is associated with the self, individual needs, identity, independence, and leadership. As a fire sign, Aries is a passionate and active energy. It can also be combative, argumentative, impatient, impulsive, selfish, dominating, trigger happy, and one-pointed. The retrograde process itself is a time of recalibration in how we assert ourselves in these Aries ways of expression along with how it is configured with our individual natal charts.

Game On – Pluto Turns Forward

1 October – Venus square Pluto
2 October – Pluto Direct 20° Capricorn | Mercury into Scorpio
3 October – Mars into Libra

new moonLorna Bevan – To the beat of Pluto’s subliminal shamanic drumming, the countdown to 2020 – a year unlike anything you’ve experienced before – has started. From now on, everything matters, everything counts.

On October 3rd Pluto turns Direct in Capricorn heading towards the once in 507 years conjunction with Saturn in Capricorn on January 12 2020.

This means that all 3 Game changers in the dramas of 2020 – Saturn/ Pluto/ Jupiter – are now all moving forward into uncharted territory. You will absolutely feel this shift. It will be palpable, somatic, visceral, intensely emotional and physical.

In 2020, 3(!) rare Gateway Cycles end then completely re-boot at the same time. This is the start of a Social and Collective Re-set lasting throughout the next decade to 2030. Continue reading “Game On – Pluto Turns Forward”

The Shadow Illuminated

Saturn & Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn until October/November 2019

What happens in January 2020?

fearSarah Varcas – You may already know we have a big moment coming up on 12th/13th January 2020 when a conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn heralds the beginning of a new developmental cycle lasting in excess of thirty years. Whilst the actual time of the conjunction and the days around it may well present some interesting challenges (more on that nearer the time!), its real significance lies in its relevance to the evolutionary development of humanity in the coming years.

When the Lord of Karma (Saturn) meets the Lord of the Underworld (Pluto) in the ambitious, responsible and pragmatic earth sign Capricorn we know we’ll be held to account in terms of how we impose our will upon the world, take responsibility for our choices and behaviour, exercise and respond to authority and generally manage the material realm.
