pluto in capricorn semisextiles vesta in aquarius at 1:13am, linking the planet of transformation with the Priestess asteroid of focus and service. vesta is visionary and community minded in aquarius and with pluto linked with her she is supported in diving deep in her vision of what transformation she can bring forth in her own life and in the lives of those around her. with both bodies in signs traditionally ruled by saturn but aquarius also being ruled by uranus- there is bridge right now between the past and the future, tradition and change. finding the bridge to link the two is key- in our personal lives but also Bigger Picture for the planet. pay attention to what comes in as vision or inspiration for you right now!
at 5:13am mercury in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces, linking the planet of communication with the Higher Heart and planet of intuition. mercury/neptune is great for taking dreams/intuition/vision and communicating them/working with them in practical, tangible ways. there is a capacity to bridge the mundane and the sacred right now. communication can be grounded and inspiring.
mercury in capricorn semisquares jupiter in sagittarius at 7:29am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. we just had the first jupiter/neptune square yesterday and today mercury triggers both- bringing focus to both vision, ideals and dreams but also illusion, denial, deception and avoidance of reality. mercury in capricorn says GET REAL. if your dreams cannot be made manifest they are pipe dreams. if your ideas are not followed through on with practical action- they won’t be made manifest. pay attention to the information, communications and ideas incoming right now- but then be willing to work for them to become a reality. also be willing to see which ideas or beliefs or visions are ungrounded and need to be let go of.
venus in sagittarius sesquiqudrates eris in aries at 6:06pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. venus/eris shakes things up to wake things up. if we are too idealistic, noncommittal, thinking the grass is greener elsewhere and/or are overdoing things- eris will show us what lies in the shadow that needs to be addressed. in love and money situations- be willing to see what IS NOT as much as you can see WHAT IS. both/and is key.
tuesday january 15th-
there are no major aspects today.
wednesday january 16th-
ceres in scorpio trines the north node in cancer at 1:37am, aligning the Great Mother asteroid Goddess with the north node of destiny and evolution in the sign of mothering and nurturing. this is a lovely aspect for emotional healing and getting deeper in touch with our feelings, needs and capacity to nurture and nourish ourselves. from now until 1/21 (next week) we have a beautiful Grand Water Trine formed between ceres the Great Mother, chiron the Wounded Healer and the evolutionary north node. amazing opportunities for deep emotional healing are present. healing around childhood wounding, healing with mothers or children, healing with the child within. this is a great time to be doing therapy, shadow work or any kind of emotional/somatic healing work. pay attention to the people in your life that nurture you and/or need nurturing- and allow yourself to both give and receive!
the sun cojoins the south node at 26’42 capricorn at 7:29pm, bringing illumination and consciousness to old patterns and karmic tendencies we are stuck in that hold us back from the evolution and growth we seek. from 1/1 to today the sun has been triggering saturn, pluto and the south node- all 3 of which do a potent dance through out 2019 (and even into 2020!!!). wherever capricorn is in your chart- you are being asked to do a MAJOR PURGE karmically so that you complete things and create space in your life for the new. facing fears, obsessions, rigidity, dogma, and resistance to growth and change is key. pay attention to what is up for you today and the first 1/2 of january as the Universe is putting a spotlight on your greatest work this year!!!
thursday january 17th-
vesta in aquarius sextiles eris in aries at 11:57pm, linking the Priestess asteroid Goddess with the Goddess of activism and revelation! vesta is visionary and wants change in aquarius- eris in aries wants us to see and own the shadow and particularly own our anger and rage and transform it into something higher. vesta/eris is great astrology to take action on our visions. when we are guided by the desire to be of service- there’s no limits to where this astrology can take us.
friday january 18th-
venus in sagittarius sesquiquadrates the north node in cancer at 3:25am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the north node of destiny and evolution. venus in sadge wants freedom and space- but sometimes her desire for freedom can be a means to escape facing her feelings, emotions and needs. the north node in cancer is all about getting intimate with our emotions. closeness, intimacy, nurturing ourselves and others is key with the north node in cancer! check in when you may be checking out. don’t escape but stay present to what is.
at 8:49am venus in sagittarius trines mars in aires, aligning the Divine Lovers in powerful ways! venus/mars can be creative, romantic, fertile and fun loving. both bodies in fire signs amplifies passion and a desire for the new and the unknown. on the 22nd and 25th venus and mars link with jupiter- bringing a super expansive energy to travel, teaching, taking action, initiating things and perhaps even romance. enjoy the astrology but make sure you are not overdoing the fire in impulsive or selfish ways.
mercury cojoins pluto at 21’11 capricorn at 12:03pm, aligning the mind and intellect with the Lord of the Underworld. mercury/pluto is great for deep talks, being in therapy and getting to the root of matters. this is an excellent aspect in the chart of a therapist or shaman as there is the capacity to go deep. yet mercury/pluto can also bring up shadow in communication- revealing Truths that have been hidden or perhaps unearthing power/control dynamics. navigating communication terrain wisely!
the sun in capricorn sextiles chiron in pisces at 4:57pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the Wounded Healer planetoid. sun/chiron is great for healing and deepening our journey of self awareness and self care. the sun in capricorn is serious and focused and chiron in pisces is opening us up to our emotions, grief, pain, compassion and more. take necessary steps for you own healing today.
sun in capricorn squares uranus in aries at 5:31pm, bringing shake up/wake up energy into the mix today. capricorn likes stability- uranus likes upheaval and change. wherever we are holding on so tightly- to control, to the past, to security- sun/uranus can throw us a curve ball today. stay open to change.
saturday january 19th-
sun at 29 capricorn semisquares neptune in pisces at 2:25pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves and confuses the ego. sun/neptune can be mystical, spiritual, compassionate and dreamy- but the tense nature of the aspect is actually activating one of the biggest themes in the astrology of 2019- dreams (neptune) versus reality (capricorn), truth (capricorn) versus illusion (neptune). with the sun at the karmic 29th degree- we have things coming up that need to be resolved in order to move on (that is a theme all year long, too). pay attention to your intuition and vision but check in with reality and make sure you seeing what IS not just what might be, used to be, could be or should be.
at 2:58pm mercury in capricorn squares eris in aries, making for some revealing and unexpected communication or information today. mercury in capricorn likes what is linear and logical. eris in aries likes to upset the apple cart by showing us what no wants to look at or talk about. be aware in communication today and don’t engage in combat just for the sake of it. if you need to take a stand do so but be sure you are aware of your own shadow that might be running you today.
at 3:57pm uranus in aries semisextiles chiron in pisces- harmoniously aligning the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener with the Wounded Healer planetoid. these two have been in semisextile aspect since the start of 2009 and will continue to do so until the middle of 2021- so this is a long term transit that really spans a whole generation. uranus brings things to Light and helps us make radical shifts and changes and when he is in contact with the Wounded Healer we have huge potential for seeing our own wounds and doing deep healing work that helps us to dramatically release the past and the hold it has on us. with uranus in the first sign and chiron in the last sign (but not for much longer as they both move into new signs in the next 2 months)- there is potential to really clear out old karmic patterns from the past that have been haunting us for lifetimes. the key is that we have to do something with this astrology- it’s not a silver spoon in the mouth! if you happen to have planets around 28-29 degrees that are getting activated by uranus and chiron then you are in the line of transformational fire! for everyone though, this astrology provides us with the impetus and potential to bring to Light that which we could not see or face in the past. cathartic healing is possible right now- be sure to embrace it and work with the energies present right now! (because both of these bodies are slow moving planets this transit lasts 12 years- but the degrees and signs they activate during each exact aspect change. in 2009 uranus was at 20’22 pisces and chiron was at 20’22 aquarius. in 2021 uranus will be at 10’50 taurus and chiron will be at 10’50 aries. so both bodies transit over 50 degrees respectively over this 12 year cycle- helping to awaken and heal parts of our individual and collective experience that is ready for shift).
venus in sagittarius semisextiles saturn in capricorn at 11:29pm, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus is about to trigger the jupiter/neptune square (20th through the 22nd) but luckily she is also triggering the saturn/neptune sextile. these are 2 of the biggest transits of 2019 (not counting the capricorn confluence) and if you have not heard my 2019 yearly astrology forecast video you can find that here- https://divineharmony.com/yearly-astrological-forecast/2019-yearly-astrology-forecast-video/ venus/saturn helps us to see what is real and what is not. what dreams can be manifested with some good old fashioned hard work and which dreams are pipe dreams, ungrounded or not going to serve us. venus/saturn says get real- while venus with jupiter and neptune says dream big. we need both right now so make sure you give both their due!
sunday january 20th-
venus in sagittarius sesquiqudrates uranus in aries at 12:19am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! there’s some potent venus aspects this week- shaking up and waking up the sagittarius area of our charts (listen to your horoscopes for more info). venus uranus is bringing sudden and unexpected shifts and change- they could be amazing (like winning the lottery!) but they could also be the last thing you wanted but the one thing you need. staying open to change in Love and money situations is key right now.
the sun moves out of capricorn and into aquarius at 12:59am, shifting the conscious self and ego from earth to air, yin to yang, stabilizing to freedom loving. the sun in aquarius is outside of the box, revolutionary, radical and eccentric! this sign does not like the status quo and marches to the beat of it’s own drummer! the coming month is a great time to think outside of the box and do things that are wild and differing! just watch out for being so addicted to be different that you cannot be like others- and also watch out for fear of commitment that pretends to be independence.
pallas in libra squares nodes at 7:01pm, bringing the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess into tense aspect with the nodes of destiny and karma. points of choice are presented to us right now. when we find ourselves at the cross roads which way will we choose? we can do the karmic path of the same old same old- staying stuck and bound to an old paradigm. or we can move into new directions and grow- but it will not be comfortable and will take courage and trust. the north node in cancer reminds us that our growth and evolution requires that we make peace with the feminine and with our emotions. too much patriarchal shadow of power, control and abuse of resources is holding us back from our personal and collective growth and evolution. pallas in libra wants balance- she does not want the old at the expense of the new, but she equally does not want to throw the baby out with the bath water. right now we are being asked to discern what is good and healthy from the past and what is not. seeing the Bigger Picture and making decisions as we navigate our path of growth and evolution is key. pay attention to the patterns you are becoming aware of in your life and in the lives of those around you. don’t be so set in your ways that you cannot embrace change!
sun in aquarius semisquares jupiter in sagittarius at 8:03pm, linking the conscious self and ego in the sign of vision and change with the planet of expansion and growth in the sign of adventure and courage. this is great astrology for embracing change! but the aspect is tense so we do need to think before we act to ensure we don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. if we are addicted to change and freedom this can exacerbate those tendencies. tuning into when our addiction to change, chaos and freedom is really a cover up for fear of self-mastery, grounding, commitment and stability is key.
at 8:15pm venus in sagittarius squares neptune in pisces, creating tension between the lower heart and Higher Heart. venus/neptune can be dreamy, romantic and idealistic. but they can also be out to lunch, confused, deceptive and in denial. in matters of Love and money make sure you are seeing things clearly and not just seeing what you want to see. you can overdo things right now- in spending, in loving and more. access some capricorn discernment as a healthy antidote.
the total lunar eclipse at 0’52 leo is exact today at 9:16pm PST- marking the 1/2 way point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the partial solar eclipse in capricorn on 1/5. we are in eclipse season which is all about RADICAL CHANGE, endings and new beginnings! this is the last of of the leo/aquarius eclipses- and this one is aligned with the north node of destiny and evolution. this is an extra potent eclipse as it is total and is a blood moon (the moon will appear red in the sky). the last 1 1/2 years the north node was in leo and the south node was in aquarius (until the nodes moved in november or 2018) showing us that our growth was tied up with coming out of the head and into the heart, less detachment and more engagement with the world and others. this has also been about leadership, creativity, authenticity and shining! this eclipse is square uranus and trine chiron- bringing a wake up/shake up energy that can shake us out of our stupor but also a deeply healing energy that can help us see what needs to be healed so we can move forward with more authenticity and originality in life. for more information on this lunation check the LUNAR INSIGHT posted a few days to a week before the lunation is exact.
have a blessed week!
