WOW! 2019 seems to be off to a rip-roaring start!
In just the first week we have seen Mars move into his home sign of Aries, the Sun was conjunct Saturn, followed tonight by a New Moon and partial solar eclipse last night. The eclipse was full over China, Russia, the Aleutian Islands and the western tundra of Alaska. I expect to see these two powerhouse countries of China and Russia in news a bit more over the next six months.
This is the second eclipse in the Capricorn/Cancer cycle of eight eclipses that began last July and will end in July of 2020. This eclipse took place right in the middle of Capricorn at 15 degrees. If you have planets anywhere in your chart at 14-16 degrees, you can expect to see some activity in those areas of your life. The lunar nodes were also in the mix too. This is dealing with our past in all things Capricorn and our future in all things Cancer. Or, more of the old paradigm falling away and making room for a new one.
The eclipse was flanked on either side by Saturn and Pluto. Pluto is all about power, loss, destruction, and transformation. Saturn is about rules, regulations, responsibility, hard work, and time. Pluto has been transiting Capricorn since 2008 and won’t be leaving until January of 2024. During this transit, he is transforming all that is toxic and lacking authenticity. The old is being torn down because it no longer serves us and new is coming in to take its place. Change is always difficult. Saturn is doing his best to follow behind and clean up after destructive Pluto.
Saturn only has just over 15 months left in Capricorn however before he moves into Aquarius and tries to dictate chaos. In the meantime, Saturn and Pluto are working together. This is a tough combo that has little tolerance for compassion or heartfelt interactions.
Gratefully leaders in human development like Wayne Dyer, Depak Chopra, and many, many others have lead the way in teaching us how to view change as an opportunity. Still, we resist. It’s only human. But, change is our destiny and comes no matter how much we fight it.
The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from January of 1762-February of 1778. This period saw huge changes ranging from the birth of the industrial revolution and invention of the steam engine in 1765, the Boston Tea Party in 1773, the American Revolution in 1775, and the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
I’ve read many articles by many astrologers that believe Pluto is in the midst of tearing down our old way of government and our financial system to make way for a new of doing things. We are all aware of the many horrific human tragedies going on around the globe and the volatility of the tempers world leaders in general. Once Pluto enters Aquarius un 2024, we will begin to see things shift to a more humanitarian approach to things. Still, this will take time to settle in.
Mars moving into Aries on New Years Day was a powerful start to the year. Mars is headstrong, full of youthful impatience, action, masculinity, hot tempers, conflicts, and a side of abrasiveness. Mars is the god of war. Think about how you are seeing these characteristics show up on the world stage and in the news.
From the numerological standpoint, this is a universal 3 year. (2+0+1+9= 12 – 1+2=3)
Three is considered good luck. It is inspiring, generous, and positive. A three year gives people strength to express themselves and their ideas. It also helps us fight against the abuse of power. This year will be about going for the gusto and grabbing opportunities as they show up. To figure out what number your personal year is, add your birthday number and the month number to 3 and reduce the sum down to one digit. This will be your personal year number. Here is a link that explains it all better and gives an overview of all the personal year numbers. https://karisamuels.com/personal-year-numerology/
This coming week we have Uranus turning direct today. He is at 28 degrees Aries and asking us to finish up all our Uranus in Aries. During his retrograde period, Uranus has asked us to find a way to direct the fire inside us, our passions and desires. What have you come up with? What decisions have you made, what directions have you taken? Are you paying attention to your intuition? Are you serving others with what is uniquely you?
Monday Venus enters Sagittarius. This move will take us from obsession to seeking adventure and freedom. This is casting a universal light on love.
Tuesday Mercury will square Mars. This is impatient energy. It can also be somewhat disagreeable. Avoid meetings if possible and be cautious about starting new projects or new business. However, it these things are already underway you should be fine to go ahead. Just be aware that folks could be irritable and getting our thoughts across could be difficult. Any communications could be difficult.
Wednesday Jupiter aspects Uranus. This is a restless combination. It might also make finding common ground harder than usual. If we are not willing to change it will be forced on us. Remember that Uranus is rebellious energy and all about change but don’t make changes just for the sake of change. That will prove to be a foolish move. This is not a good aspect for investing but it is a great time to be open to new thoughts and perspectives.
Friday the Sun conjuncts Pluto. This will create some strong-willed energy. We might also be more focused on important things and feel a need for control in our lives. For the time being, we might do well to keep things to ourselves.
This is also a good time to release things that no longer serve us. This applies to possessions, relationships, bad habits, or anything that is blocking us from what is possible. Find the source of divine energy inside you and make the most of it.
I hope 2019 has gotten off to a good start for you and this continues all year long. Don’t forget to be kind to others. You are at the same time, being kind to yourself. Hopefully, I will be here again all year to share astrological info with you and help you navigate your life.
