Here comes the moon
Full Moon at 4:21p EST (29º Cancer)
“Gods gift I see thats moving up there into the night
Though dark the mirror in the sky reflects us our light
Looks like a little brother to the sun
Or mother to the stars at night
And here it is and here it comes
Here comes the moon, the moon, the moon, the moon, the moon”
What is coming to you or coming to light? The Full Moon gives vision & clarity.
Now clear of Mercury’s shadow
We are now clear of Mercurys Shadow, meaning the process of reevaluation that occurred during Mercury retrograde in December is fully complete. Our minds are ready to absorb fresh material. With all planets direct, things are moving forward and changing rapidly. The vibrational frequency is going to continue to rise with upcoming celestial events. The opportunity and challenge is to stay centered - as we all adjust up.
There are many constellations not used in astrology. “Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations” (wikipedia). The 12 archetypes used in Western & Vedic astrology are comprehensive and have worked for millennia. Though it is worth contemplating why Ophiuchus has surfaced now in the collective consciousness. Our understanding of the universe is constantly expanding...
Mercury now joins the Sun in Capricorn
Mercury ☿ now joins the Sun in the sign of Capricorn ♑ Jan 13 - Feb 2. Matters of integrity, respect, and prudence (♑) may come further into focus especially in day-to-day social or business interactions (☿). Thoughts and conversations (☿) may be serious or practical in nature, and yet inspired with subtle refinements (♑)... These are a few examples of how this configuration may show up!
The Moon is in Aries
The Moon is in Aries ♈, sign of the warrior and pioneer - sign of courageously asserting & exploring. As the Moon waxes to a First Quarter (Jan 12), it is the part of the cycle that suggests continued effort and action to clear a pathway towards manifesting the new vision related to the seed impulse released at the New Moon (Jan 4). All planets being direct support this growth and forward movement.
Today someone mentioned to me that she didnt resonate with the feeling of all planets being direct as she was experiencing barriers towards moving forward... A couple things come to mind in response to that - for one, this part of the lunar cycle (Waxing Crescent through First Quarter) does require strength and determination to overcome obstacles in order to grow and build whatever you are working on. The seed was planted at the New Moon, but now it has to germinate, sending shoots out into new territory etc, which can be a difficult process... The other thing to keep in mind is that the general transits in the sky do affect all of us, however the way in which they interact with our own charts are individual and primary.
A perfect time for just being
All planets are direct, so in general this is a great phase for venturing forward on projects, endeavors, and ideas; however today we have a long Void-of-Course Moon from 3:51p-9:57p EST, making this evening a perfect time for just being, and allowing what is to be what it is. Tomorrow is another day for striving...
“No birth-chart is better than any other”
“No birth-chart is better than any other. One is always better for some one purpose. But as all purposes are equally valuable and necessary in the economy of the greater Whole, each mans chart is better for the purposes of his life than is anybody elses.” ~Dane Rudhyar
Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces
Along with the Solar Eclipse, Jupiter ♃ is exactly conjunct Uranus ♅ today at 27º Pisces ♓. Jupiter expands and adds benevolence to whatever it touches. Uranus represents sudden change, exciting breakthroughs, and progressive/revolutionary ideas. These two planetary archetypes combining in dreamy, mystical Pisces will manifest uniquely for each of us, but in general connection with the divine is enhanced and highlighted.
New Moon Solar Eclipse
There is a New Moon Solar Eclipse ☀ at 14º Capricorn ♑ on 1/04 at 4:03am EST. The New Moon is a time to notice what new impulse is being born within, to honor your inspiration, and take a step forward. A Solar Eclipse greatly enhances the effects of a New Moon - powerfully charging the new beginning, as something new replaces something old, and propelling us into a new cycle.
Astrology helps one “become what one is”
One of the gifts astrology offers is to help one “become what one is” (Dane Rudhyar). Rather than trying to fit into a concept of what one thinks one should be or to pursue a path set by others, astrology helps one to discover oneself for who one is, accept oneself, and grow into ones full and unique potential.
