Saturn in Capricorn December 2017 to December 2020 – Aim High

A new major cycle is about to start.

Saturn moves into Capricorn on the 20th of December 2017 and will stay there until the 18th  of December 2020.

After wandering though the zodiac for 27 years, Saturn finally comes home. Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, the sign he resonates with the most.

Indeed, Saturn and Capricorn have many things in common: both Capricorn and Saturn are structured, hardworking, diligent, persistent, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve the next best version of themselves.

Because Saturn is at home in Capricorn, this is really good news for all of us. When a planet transits its home sign, it can express its best qualities.

What does it mean that Saturn feels at ease in Capricorn? Take a look at the mountain goat in the photo below.

Saturn in Capricorn

Are you freaking out? Whenever Saturn passes through any other sign but Capricorn, he is freaking out, too. He does not understand the exuberance of Sagittarius. He feels awkward in the deep waters of Scorpio.

But he feels just fine in Capricorn. In fact, he feels extremely comfortable here. Capricorn is the place where he can best make use of his knowledge and skills: determination, persistence, resilience.

We desperately need Saturn out of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter which is pretty much the antithesis of Saturn. While Jupiter is all about exuberance, growth and expansion, Saturn is all about rules, contraction, learning to take responsibilities and becoming an adult.

Do you see the conflict here? Saturn in Sagittarius is like asking the hippie guru to put on a suit and go to the office. Thankfully, on the 20th of December 2017 Saturn is finally out of Sagittarius and he can finally be himself.

But let’s not forget what Saturn stands for: rules, hard work, restriction, patience, structure. Saturn is also the great manifestor,  the only planet able to turn ideas into concrete results.

Saturn will reward you – always – but only when you reach the summit. You need to make your way there by yourself. You need to work hard to receive Saturn’s blessings. The good news is that once you have them, no one can take them away from you. You have earned them with your sweat and tears. You have become a better person.

By the end of the Saturn’s transit in 2020, a new, better you will emerge. But for this, you need to put in the work and be patient.

Saturn also represents boundaries. The ring of Saturn represents our ‘safety zone’, our personal space, what we can rely on, what we are responsible for. Within the safety zone, if you do your job, you are protected. There is no ‘fate’ or bad fortune to blame.

It is only outside the ring belt where life gets dangerous. But inside the safety zone, you know what you get. Saturn is maybe the only planet you can fully rely on. Saturn is mature, solid and predictable. Saturn has your back. You can count on him.

Saturn is the planet that marks the transition between our inner world, what is within our control (the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter)  to the outer world, what is outside our control, represented by outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto). Saturn is with one foot in this world, and one foot in the other.

Saturn is thus the gateway between our mortal existence and immortality. Saturn is the teacher who makes sure we are prepared to face our destiny, to fulfill our mission in this lifetime.

Saturn in Capricorn’s motivation is to find the highest peak, to reach the top of the mountain. Saturn in Capricorn never strops climbing. There is no mountain high enough for him. During Saturn’s transit in Capricorn, you into a mountain goat, too.

In the next 3 years there won’t by a peak you cannot climb, there won’t be a goal you cannot reach. Whatever you put your mind to, you can do.

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve” – Napoleon Hill

What will happen during Saturn’s stay in Capricorn December 2017 – December 2020

Capricorn rules the governance structures of the society: politics, church, the monarchy, big corporations, the monetary system, macroeconomics.  Saturn in Capricorn will bring an extra focus on these structures, by either challenging them, or on the contrary, by consolidating and empowering them. Old systems and structures can collapse, and new systems or structures can come into power.

The key word for Saturn in Capricorn is structure. When the structure is fundamentally solid, Saturn will come to reinforce it. But when the structure, when the foundation is weak, Saturn will come to destroy it in order to create a better, a more solid foundation, a foundation that can pass the test of time (or at least the test of the next 29 years, corresponding to a Saturn cycle).

In 1961 when Saturn was in Capricorn, the Berlin Wall, separating the East and West Germany was built. In In 1989, when Saturn was in Capricorn again, the wall came down. As we can see, Saturn can either build, or destroy, depending on the historical context.

For the upcoming Saturn in Capricorn transit, the “destroy” alternative seems quite plausible, given that Saturn will conjunct Pluto, the great destroyer, in January 2020 (last time the two met was in 1982!).

Fortunately, apart from Pluto, Saturn is making mainly good aspects with all slow moving planets (a trine by sign to Uranus, a sextile to Neptune, a sextile to Jupiter in 2018 and a semisextile in 2019).

What is great about the Saturn Neptune sextile is that both planets are in their home signs (Saturn in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces) which means this time Saturn and Neptune will support each other and build on each other’s strengths. Compare the upcoming sextile to the 2016 Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces… we are definitely heading for better times!

Saturn will also be in a trine by sign to Uranus, which is the best aspect you can get.

After we had some very challenging aspects between 2012-2016: the Uranus-Pluto square, the Saturn-Neptune square, the Jupiter Pluto square and the Jupiter Uranus opposition, the sky is finally giving us a break.

No major stressful aspect in 2018 and 2019! In 2020 we will have the Saturn Pluto conjunction, which is probably the most important aspect in 40 years – and by then we can definitely expect major events.

To sum up, during Saturn in Capricorn transit we can expect BIG changes, but the changes will be positive, and necessary. There is not much resistance to the Saturnian agenda in the coming years. All the outer planets will support Saturn in his mission. This means that changes will come, but will be positive. We will be well equipped to overcome them.

What is also worth noting is that in the 2nd part of the Saturn transit in Capricorn we will have a record of 4 slow moving planets in Capricorn: Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter and the South Node.  The last time we had a Capricorn stellium of outer planets was in the late 1980’s – early 90’s, with Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune – all in Capricorn.

Saturn officially leaves Capricorn December 17th of 2020, almost 3 years after the ingress (Saturn will move into Aquarius for few months, from March to July 2020).

So we’re in for 3 years of pure Saturnian energy. Do your job well, and Saturn will reward you big time!

How Saturn in Capricorn is going to affect you

To find out how Saturn in Capricorn is going to affect you personally, look in which house you have Capricorn. The house where you have Capricorn in your natal chart will point to the area of your life which will come into focus. If you don’t know in which house you have Capricorn check out my article about how to read transits in the natal chart.

If you have Capricorn or Aquarius ascendant you will feel the shift stronger because Saturn is your chart ruler (or co-ruler, for Aquarius ascendants).

If you have a Capricorn ascendant, a complete new chapter of your life is about to start. If you have Cancer Ascendant, you will experience the shift in the area of relationships, if you have Aries Ascendant you will start a new career cycle and so on.

Pay attention to what you start now, because you are going to stick with it for the next 29 years of your life – this is, you guessed it, the length of a Saturn cycle.

If your natal Saturn is in Capricorn, you will experience your Saturn Return, one of the most significant transits in one’s life.

If you are at your first Saturn return (if you are born between February 15th 1988 until February 5th 1991) – congratulations! Your first Saturn return means that you will officially become an adult.

Saturn return means that now is the time to grow up and do something with your life. Saturn returns usually bring major commitments in one’s life: marriage, children, buying a property, career advancements.  If you have your 1st Saturn return, be aware that Saturn will also conjunct your natal Uranus and Neptune – so this transit is really BIG for you!

If you have your 2nd Saturn return, the same themes of building new foundations, setting the course for the new phase of your life will come into focus.

But you don’t need to have your Saturn return to be affected by this transit. No matter when you are born, Saturn will bring a particular area of your life into awareness. Saturn will teach you how to become bullet proof in this area of your life, either by fortifying the existing foundations, or by building new ones.

Either way, Saturn will help you clear out any old baggage that holds you back from moving forward in your life, so you can achieve your highest purpose.

Remember, anything is possible with Saturn in Capricorn. Aim high – because this time, you might just get to the top of the mountain.

New Moon In Scorpio – Behind The Scenes

The New Moon in Scorpio on Saturday, November 18th is the most enigmatic New Moon of the year. Possibilities are endless.

Only once a year we have a New Moon in Scorpio. Only once a year we have the chance to explore what Scorpio stands for: change, transformation, our subconscious, what we share with others, for good and for bad.

The Scorpio season is that time of the year when we need to get to terms with the parts of ourselves we keep hidden not only from others, but also from ourselves.

There is a lot of Scorpio energy right now in the sky – we have Sun, Moon, Venus and Jupiter all in Scorpio.

The New Moon takes place at 26° Scorpio so check out your chart to see if you have any planet or angle in the last degrees of Scorpio. If you do, then this New Moon will speak to you directly.

The closest aspects the New Moon is making to other planets are a quincunx to Uranus in Aries and a trine to Chiron in Pisces.

But what makes this New Moon truly special is the square between Mars and Pluto which is almost exact at the time of the New Moon.

Why a square between Mars and Pluto is so interesting?

Because Mars and Pluto are the two rulers of the New Moon in Scorpio, Mars is the traditional ruler and Pluto is the modern ruler.

The New Moon in Scorpio is about the epic battle between the old and the new, between our individual will (Mars) and the supreme will (Pluto).

Although Mars and Pluto usually create a lot of friction and tension, at this time of the Lunar cycle, when the Moon is invisible, we won’t be able to express this inner tension.

When the Moon is invisible we don’t feel the urge to act, we don’t feel the urge to go into the world and manifest what we want. Because there is almost no air energy at the moment in the sky –  our energy, our drive, our emotions we feel so deeply cannot materialize.

It takes fire and air to make fire, and when there is no air, we will feel everything like an internal combustion engine.

All that fire, all that energy will consume you from within. There is no escape but to let it burn you from the inside.

If something burns in the outside, you run and seek shelter. But what do you do with the fire within? What do you do when there is no place to run?

The battle you are going to fight at the time of the New Moon will not be straightforward. You will not save the world and kill dragons.

In the dark of the night, when there is no light to guide you, all it is left to do is look inside.

This is the time to take a leap into the underworld, to do what you are most afraid of, and face the consequences of your actions.

When you lose the faith, remember what you are here for. The sign that comes after Scorpio, Sagittarius will give you the clues.

You are here to be a God yourself. You are here to carry the torch wisdom and experience. When there is no light to guide you, you must keep the faith.

The ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice is about the fateful love between Orpheus, a Greek God playing the harp, and beautiful nymph Eurydice. The two got married and lived happily for a while.

When Eurydice died, Orpheus descended into the underworld, protected by Gods, to find his wife and bring her back to life. Over there, Orpheus met Hades, the God of the underworld. He played his lyre so beautifully that Hades decided to make an exception and let him take Eurydice back to the living word, under one condition: Eurydice would follow him while walking out of the underworld, but he should not look at her before coming out to the light because he would lose her forever and ever.

If Orpheus was patient enough, he would have Eurydice as a normal woman again by his side.

Orpheus happily agreed. He was leading the way out, and was trying to hear Eurydice’s steps, but he could not hear anything. He started to believe that the gods had fooled him.

In fact, Eurydice was behind him, but as a shadow. Only a few feet away from the exit, Orpheus lost his faith and turned to see; Eurydice was behind him, but her shadow was whisked back among the dead. Eurydice was gone forever.

If Orpheus kept his faith, he could have brought Eurydice back to life. But he didn’t.

And here comes the lesson of Scorpio. When in the underworld, do not expect to see. Do not rely on your thoughts, experience, not even on your intuition. In the depths of the dark, behind the scenes, all you can do is keep the faith.

Are you willing to fully surrender to the darkness? Are you open to find the truth where you least expected it to be? Are you brave enough to let go of everything you thought to be true and look for a different kind of truth?

Chances are, you already know the answers to these questions – but you don’t trust yourself enough to accept them. But this is exactly the reason why, every year, every time the world changes form, every time seasons change, we have a New Moon in Scorpio. The one way to access that place of ancestral knowledge is to surrender to the unknown.

Mars square Pluto will ask you to accept your worldly limitation, to surrender to a higher power, and let it be.

Mars (your material, worldly will) vs. the divine will – who do you think will win?

The answer is not obvious. The truth is, the divine will wants you to win, as long as you see the big picture, as long as you accept the role you play in the grand scheme of things.

And your individual will also knows there is nothing worth fighting for, unless it severs a higher purpose.

How can you reconcile the two? If you are the type of person who likes to impose their will, then the New Moon will be tough, because it will ask you to surrender to a higher power.

If you don’t find it easy to assert yourself, the New Moon will help you get in touch with your inner power.

The sabian symbol for this lunation is “a military band marches noisily on through the city streets” – here again, we notice the worldly will (military band) marching in the city streets, a symbol of the uncharted territory.

The band is noisy and tries to impose its agenda. But on the city streets, anything can happen. You never know what is waiting for you at the next corner.

Our aggressive, tense, domineering approach in opposition to the natural spontaneity and instinctive adjustment to the nature of tribal societies.

The New Moon in Scorpio is not a time to take your battles outdoors. The hardest battle you are going to fight – always – is with yourself.

Venus Conjunct Jupiter on November 13th 2017 – Splendor In The Sky

Venus and Jupiter have a spectacular encounter in the morning sky on Monday, November 13th 2017, at 7° Scorpio.

Venus conjunct Jupiter is not just a regular conjunction… it is a superconjunction. Why is that? Because Venus and Jupiter don’t only cross their elliptic path, but are also become parallel. This means they are on the same declination and longitude. They are basically one next to the other.

You see, if an astrologer says a planet is conjunct another planet, this means the two are aligned along their ecliptic path. But as seen from the Earth, the distance between the two can be significant.

When two planets are also parallel, they show up one next to one another in the sky, and their energies are much more intense than when they are in a regular conjunction.

Venus Jupiter

And there is one more thing: Venus and Jupiter are both visible. In ancient astrology, visibility was the most important omen when making predictions.

Basically, when a planet is visible with the naked eye in the sky, it is much more powerful. When a planet is invisible, its energy is weaker, more introspective, and cannot express itself freely.

Let’s take the example of the Moon. When we have a New Moon, the Moon is invisible, and can only express its energy through the Sun. Same with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. When the 6 planets are close to the Sun, they are invisible in the sky.

When Mercury and Venus start their retrograde cycles, they are invisible. You may know that Mercury and Venus retrogrades are times of introspection. But what you many not know is that their energy is lower because Mercury and Venus are invisible, and that’s the reason why they can only express themselves though the Ego of the Sun.

Now let’s go back to our Venus Jupiter conjunction. What is truly special is that Jupiter just became visible. When a planet becomes visible for the first time, its energy is at its strongest. It is basically the most powerful manifestation of the planet’s energy.

Jupiter disappeared into the sunset in the last week of September and has been out of sight ever since. Finally on November 11th, Jupiter made its appearance low to the east-southeast horizon. In the coming days, Jupiter will be slowly ascending, getting higher and more prominent.

Sunday morning on November 12th,  Jupiter and Venus will be separated by less than 1°. And finally, Monday morning on November 13th, Venus and Jupiter will appear together, side by side: Venus on the left and dimmer than Jupiter on its right.

Now think for a second of what that means. Jupiter, the planet of abundance, luck and faith becomes visible for the first time, just to meet with the 2nd best planet in the sky, Venus, which is also visible and powerful.

Not only we have a conjunction between Jupiter and Venus, the most beneficial planets in our solar system, but a super conjunction when Venus and Jupiter are also parallel to each other. Moreover, the  two planets are visible and stronger than ever, especially Jupiter!

This is truly amazing!

And if this sounds too scientific, just do what our ancestors have done for millennia: set your alarm, wake up early and watch them for yourself.  What you will experience will be breathtaking.

You will see them right next to each other. The two brightest planets in the sky, will be one next to each other, almost merging in one single light.

Astrologically, the Venus Jupiter conjunction takes place at 7° in Scorpio and marks a new Venus Jupiter cycle. Those people blessed with planets or angles around 7° Scorpio will especially benefit from this conjunction.

Venus and Jupiter meet approximately once a  year to start a new cycle of abundance and growth especially in the area of finance and possessions.

Venus Jupiter cycles repeat themselves every 24-years. 39 revolutions of Venus are equal to 24 revolutions of Earth and 2 revolutions for Jupiter. Every 24 years, the themes of the particular Venus-Jupiter conjunction will come again into our lives. The last cycle took place on 8th of November 1993. Do you recall what happened in your life in November 1993?

As you may know, Jupiter is the luckiest planet in our solar system. Jupiter expands everything it touches. Jupiter stands for growth, abundance, wealth, hope, faith and belief. Jupiter is a symbol of the ruler, of the priest, of the hierophant, of the one who holds the torch of truth.

No wonder Jupiter has faith. You can only search for the truth if you have faith. When you say “YES” to the world, this is when the opportunities come to you. And somehow, when you say yes, sooner or later, things turn out well. Always. This is the one truth about life and Jupiter knows it better than anyone else.

Now let’s talk about Venus.

Venus stands for how we relate to the world, what we like, what we dislike, the 5 physical senses, what we enjoy doing, our relationships, our ability to give and receive love, our appreciation for beauty and aesthetics.

The Venus Jupiter conjunction takes place in Scorpio, the deepest place in the Zodiac. Scorpio rules the big cycles of life and death, our legacy, what we “share” with others and with the universe as a whole, those things we have no say in. You have no say when you are born. You have no choice but to die, sooner or later.

Scorpio rules the deepest corners of our psyche, these part of ourselves we are not even aware of, but which take over every time – our instincts, our reflexes, our reptilian brain.

Scorpio also rules transformation. We are not really ‘born’ and we don’t really die. We just move from one form of existence to another.

Scorpio is about this deep knowledge that we can only access in brief moments of truth.

Venus conjunct Jupiter is one of them.

Venus and Jupiter will shine bright in the sky and will join forces to light our way. But what way? What exactly are they going to point to?

Venus and Jupiter will show us the Beauty (Venus) of Truth (Jupiter). Whatever part of your chart this conjunction will stir, will come with one surprising truth. The veil will be lifted. Venus and Jupiter will light your way so you can see what needs to be seen.

What is this truth? Chances are you already know it. Nothing too fancy, nothing too out of reach. Don’t expect to have your life turned upside down. The truth that you are going to find is not unexpected. It will not take you by surprise. You will likely find yourself saying “I can’t believe I’ve missed that all my life”, “I can’t believe I’ve been so blind all this time”.

You don’t need to do anything special. All Scorpio wants is authenticity and genuine connection. What is stopping you from getting in touch with yourself? What are you afraid of in getting to know about the other?  What are you afraid to say, what are you afraid to hear, what are you afraid to know?

What do you really want? With Jupiter almighty in the morning sky, all you have to do is ask for it.

Jupiter conjunct Venus will help you find a deeper meaning in your life. Something will be revealed to you in a different light, a more truer, a more beautiful one. Neptune is in a trine to the conjunction, bringing Venus and Jupiter to the next level, to a higher expression of beauty and love.

In the heart of the Scorpio, where truth and nothing but the truth can prevail, beauty becomes almost a mystical experience. Truth becomes spiritual healing. Beauty and truth become a deeper understanding of how everything makes sense out there, in the higher levels of existence.

You may need to bring the hidden parts of your soul into the light. Or maybe not. Sometimes catharsis comes without too much soul searching. You can find beauty in the smell of a flower, in the way a stranger smiles at you, or by looking at the sky in the dim light before the Sun comes out.

The sabian symbol for the Venus Jupiter conjunction is “A calm lake bathed in the moonlight”, suggesting that beyond all our efforts, lays the need for peace and the readiness to accept the illumination from above. We are sometimes so blind to see the beauty that lays just in front of our eyes.

Venus, the Goddess of beauty and love, meets with Jupiter, the Priest. The path of pleasure and the path of spirituality can be difficult to reconcile.  But in the truth of Scorpio, we have the unique chance to blend them together.

Who says there is nothing spiritual in beauty and pleasure? Who says that a spiritual path means renunciation? Right now, we can distill the essence of both. In the alchemy or Venus and Jupiter, we can find the secret formula, the magical elixir that is much more than the sum of its parts.

Wondering how the Venus Jupiter conjunction will affect you?

Look in which house you have Scorpio to find out which area of your life will come into light. For example if you have Scorpio ascendant, this will be your 1st house, if you have Sagittarius ascendant it will be your 12th house and so on.

Something will be revealed to you. One deep, beautiful truth.  This insight will empower you to ascend like the Phoenix from the ashes of your old self identification.

You will feel the energy more strongly if you have planets around 7° in Scorpio.

If you have strong Scorpio and 8th house energy in your chart, or a lot of Water, you will connect with this energy more easily. If you have mainly Air or Earth, then the energy can be traumatic at the beginning.

But no need to worry. With Jupiter in Scorpio, the good always wins in the end. You can finally find a resolution for a problem which was haunting you for years. You will finally take your power back.

Looking for more guidance? The Jupiter Reports for your Ascendant reveal what exactly you can expect from Jupiter in the coming 12 months, according to the area of your life which is transited by Jupiter.

How Do The Moon Cycles Affect You

Are you a ‘Moon person’?

There are two different types of people. People who are influenced by the Moon, and people who don’t know they are influenced by the Moon.

Indeed, the closest celestial body, our beloved Moon, affects all of us. Artists, lovers, astrologers and scientists all agree with that.

You cannot help but notice it. The Moon will stare at you in the night sky and will catch your glimpse even if you don’t particularly look for her.

The Moon has fascinated people since the beginning of times. There is something magic about the way she shines, about the way she changes shape every day, about the clockwise precision of her cycles.

Moon 1

As seen from  Earth, the discs of the Sun and the Moon are identical in size. This is because, although the Moon is 400 time smaller than the Sun, is also 400 times closer to the Earth. Isn’t this amazing? Even the most skeptical mind cannot think that this is simply a coincidence.

The Moon changes shape every night, revealing a little bit more or a little bit less of herself, depending whether she is waxing or waning. The light we see is not coming from the Moon. The Moon only projects the Sun’s light, so depending on the relative position of the Sun, Moon and Earth we get to see the Moon from different angles.

Each night, a different amount of light is given off by the Moon according to its changing relationship with the Sun. Within an approximate 28-day cycle, the Moon passes through 8 phases, each phase lasting about 45° or 3.5 days.

Because the Moon does not have a light of her own, in astrology the Moon represents our unconscious mind.  And because the Moon is the Earth’s satellite, it ‘belongs’ to the Earth. The Moon also rules our body, the flow of blood and our physiological processes.

The Moon describes our moods, but also the natural processes of life.  Moon cycles are identical, unlike the cycles of Mercury, Venus or other planets. Also, the Moon is never retrograde – that’s why the Moon is very predictable. With the Moon you know where you stand.

In astrology, events tend to happen when the Moon activates particular parts of our chart. And events tend NOT happen when the Moon is void of course.

The Moon also rules our energy and engagement level. When the Moon is invisible in the sky, our energy plummets, but as the Moon increases in size, our energy levels soar. Every month we have our energy peak at the time of the Full Moon.

And although we are all affected by the Moon, we are affected in different ways, depending upon which Moon phase we are born under.

Were you born during the day or during the night? If you were born at night, then the Moon will influence you more strongly – and will define your personality even more than your Sun sign.

Also, if you have Cancer or Taurus Moon, Cancer ascendant, or if you have a stellium of planets in Cancer, or if your Moon is positioned close to one of your angles (Ascendant, IC, Descendant, MC), then the Moon will affect you more strongly.

Last and not least, if you were born during the First Quarter, Gibbous, Full Moon or the Disseminating phase, the Moon is strong in your chart, which means you can express its qualities more freely.

To check out which Moon phase you were born under, get your natal chart and check the position of the Moon relative to the Sun. If you don’t know how to generate your natal chart, have a look this article.

Moon

Born at a NEW MOONthe Moon is conjunct the Sun. The Moon was invisible at the time of your birth.

For you, life is an adventure with unlimited possibilities. You are spontaneous and live in the moment, following your intuition rather than rational reasoning. You tend to dislike rules and conventions. You usually feel more energetic during the day and Full Moons can unbalance you.

Because you were born when the Moon was invisible, your mission in this lifetime is to discover your identity, who you really are.

Born when the Moon is CRESCENT the Moon is after the Sun. The phase starts when the Moon becomes visible in the sky and ends with the first quarter.

You are a very emotional person and you need security in your life. Your mission is to learn to become independent and detach from the past. As you develop the courage to be yourself, more and more opportunities will come your way. Be brave and you will be rewarded.

Born at a FIRST QUARTER Moonthe Moon is between 90° and 135° ahead of the Sun.

You are very spontaneous and adaptable – you just ‘know’ what to do, especially in crisis situations.

You have great managerial skills and you can do well in any activities which require quick and sharp decision making. But what really drives you is your family and building solid foundations for yourself and for the close ones.

You are what is called a “change agent” – just be careful not to kill some ideas too soon just for the sake of change, however.

Born when the Moon is GIBBOUS the Moon is between 135° and 180° ahead of the Sun.

You are life’s eternal student, always questioning the status quo. You seek perfection in everything you do and you are ready to do whatever it takes to achieve your true potential to create value in the world. You are an overachiever.

Try not to become too anxious and perfectionist, and learn to lean back from time to time.

Born at a FULL MOONthe Moon is between 180° and 225° behind the Sun.

You are an artist and an idealist. You wear your heart on your sleeve and you can be quite charming and popular. Your greatest strengths are your clarity and objectivity – you see things for what they are, rather than operating on blind faith.

Relationships are very important to you and you tend to project yourself onto others. You may be torn between two different ‘parts’ of you which want different things. Your mission is to integrate these apparently disparate pieces of yourself.

Born when the Moon is DISSEMINATINGthe Moon is between 225° and 270° behind the Sun.

You are a visionary with an ability to keep your eye on the big picture. You are a natural communicator, a teacher and a philosopher.

Although you feel a sense of urgency to fulfil your life’s purpose and to spread your message to the world, try not to become too overbearing. Your mission is not to make sure that people follow your teachings, but simply pass to on a torch of knowledge to others.

Born at a LAST QUARTER Moonthe Moon is between 270° – 315° behind the Sun.

You are a very driven individual with unique ideas on how to make the world a better place. You are motivated by tearing down the old structures and can thrive in conflict. Ahead of your time, it can be difficult for you to relate to life in the present moment.

You can have numerous changes in your life – particularly the 2nd part of your life. Just like a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, you can completely change your identity and find an inner happiness that comes from deep within.

Born at BALSAMIC Moon the Moon is between 315° until it becomes invisible.

You are a missionary, a healer with psychic abilities. Highly introspective, you seek for solitude because this is where you charge your batteries. You can have deep resentment toward people who harmed you – but in this lifetime you need to learn to forget and forgive.

When you manage to let go of the past and put yourself into the world, you can become the leader you were born to be.

***

The Moon phase under which you were born can gave you great insight into who you really are and what really drives you in life.

The Moon affects us every day. No matter under which Moon phase you were born, you will follow the Moon’s cycle as it unfolds every day of the lunar month.

How does the Moon affect you according to the Moon phase

The New Moon the energy is similar to a conjunction.

This is a time of low energy. The last few days before the New Moon are good for completing projects or getting rid of things you no longer want in your life, like bad habits. It is also a good time for diets or fasting as your body’s activity is at its lowest point in this Moon cycle.

Try not to overindulge in food during this time because your sleep can be disturbed. If you feel low emotionally, try to surround yourself with positive people, or do a low-intensity activity which can uplift your mood.

The New Moon is the best time to meditate and regroup.

The First Quarter and the Last Quarter of the Moon the energy is similar to a square.

This is the time when one half of the lunar disc is illuminated and the other half is dark. There is a 50-50 quality about this Lunar phase, which creates tension, but also motivation to get things done.

Right now you can feel an itch inside of you, but you don’t really know what to do about it. The Quarters of the Moon are similar to the PMS syndrome. You can feel stressed out and find it difficult to unwind. Try to exercise and drink water during this phase of the Moon cycle.

The Full Moon the energy is similar to an opposition.

This is the peak of the lunar cycle, with half of the Moon is fully illuminated and visible, as seen from the Earth.

This is a high point in terms of energy, but the energy of the Full Moon is very different from the First or Last Quarter of the Moon. While the Quarter Moons bring tension and anxiety times, the Full Moon brings energy which is ready to burst. Because the energy can flow freely now, it brings a feeling of saturation, of having too much energy.

The Full Moon energy urges to be expressed. This is a great time for creativity, love, and any type of genuine self-expression. The Full Moon is also a time of manifestation, so things are likely to happen and come to light around the Full Moon. You calendar can fill up more quickly than usual, as everyone seems to want to get out of the house.

Full Moons can be difficult for people who suffer from high blood pressure or sleep disorders.

The Waxing Moon: Crescent and Gibbous the energy is similar to applying sextiles and trines.

Right now everything in nature is in a stage of expansion and growth – this is a good time to put your energy into whatever you want to grow.

For example, if you want your hair to grow faster, now is the time to schedule your hairdresser appointment. In gardening, this is the best time to plant seeds that grow above the earth (leaves, fruits, or flowers).

The Waning Moon: Disseminating and Balsamic the energy is similar to separating sextiles and trines.

This is a good time to complete things, or improve and organize existing activities. If you have a business for example, try to get new clients during the waxing Moon, and to organize and improve the productivity of the existing business during the waning Moon.

Cutting hair should be done at this time if you want it to grow slower. In gardening, this is the best time to plant vegetables that grow under the earth (e.g. carrots, potatoes, horseradish).

***

I hope this gives you a better idea of how the Moon cycle and the different Moon phases affect you.

As a general rule of thumb, you are at your best on the day when the Moon and the Sun are in the same lunar phase under which you were born. In opposition to this, on the day when the phase is opposite to your lunar phase of birth, you are at your weakest.

Do you want to get more in sync with the Moon phases? Try to observe the Moon in the next months. If you do it systematically, I can promise you will become more aware about how the different phases of the Moon affect you:

  • Go outside at night and observe the Moon. How do you feel standing in the Moon light? How is it different from how you feel when under the beams of the Sun?
  • Follow the Moon’s cycle from new crescent, until it disappears from the sky, and back to new crescent again. How do you feel during the different phases of the Moon?
  • The Moon changes signs every 2.5 days. How do you feel when the Moon passes through each of the 12 signs of the zodiac?

Astrology Of November 2017 – Paradise Lost…And Found

November is a month of rediscovering your true essence and remembering what you have always known: that you are perfect as you are.

November is a highly spiritual month, thanks to Neptune which is very active throughout November.

If in September Neptune had challenging aspects, unleashing natural disasters and bringing chaos all around the world, this time around Neptune makes mainly positive aspects to other planets: a trine to the Sun, a sextile to the Full Moon, and a trine to Venus. On November 22nd Neptune stations and turns direct, bringing Neptunian themes into our consciousness.

Neptune will ask you to find a higher order in your life, to upgrade your existence to the next level of consciousness.

In November all personal planets are in aspect to their higher octave planets:

  • Mars is in aspect to Pluto – your individual perspective vs. the higher perspective, your will vs. divine will –> the transit will show you how to assert your unique self in a way that naturally fits in the grand scheme of things
  • Venus is in aspect to Neptune – your needs, your values and desires vs. the universal order –> the transit will show you how to transcend your needs and bring them to a higher vibration of universal love
  • Mercury is in aspect to Uranus – your lower mind vs. the higher mind –> the transit will show you how to connect your mind to the universal mind, how to develop your intuition and allow the divine knowledge to come to you

Water and Fire are the dominant energies in November, asking you to tune into your feelings, connect with the deeper current of your life and to allow inspiration to guide you.

This is not a month of new beginnings – wait until January 2018 to start your big, brave project. November is the month when you need to look inside – what truly defines you? What is the missing, overlooked element? How can you bring it to the next level of awareness?

Transformation is a process that most of us fear – it feels like we have to amputate a part of ourselves. But transformation is not always about destroying the old.

Transformation also means remembering who you really are – bringing into awareness that which has been unconscious or unknown, that part of you which has been forgotten.

November is a time to dig inside you, to find a higher order, an order that resonates better with the person you’ve become, who you’ve developed into.

On November 11th we also have the 3rd and final trine between Saturn and Uranus. Saturn in positive aspect to Uranus facilitates change and restructuring of the old self. The change is harmonious, this time you won’t resist it – you will embrace it effortlessly.

Change does not have to be about becoming someone else, but about rearranging the pieces of the puzzle in your life in a way that better serves your purpose.

Maybe it is not ‘something’ that is missing from your life – it is how everything fits in the bigger picture of your life that makes the difference.

Take what you already have and find a higher order, a better arrangement.

Deep inside our hearts, we all long for the lost paradise, for that place we all emerged from. We chase it all our lives: the perfect job, the perfect home, the perfect lover, the perfect relationship.

Neptune will show you that if you keep chasing it outside, it will keep on slipping through your fingers. But if you realize you have it inside you, if you realize you are already perfect – you will finally find it.

Let’s have a look at the major aspects of the month:

November

On November 3rd Sun is trine Neptune. Today you will be more idealistic than usual and you will want to bring your best self forward. And because you put your best self forward, because you act from your higher self – one of your dreams can come true today, one of your goals can be made real.

The good thing is that you don’t even have to put too much effort into it. You will simply attract it towards you. With Sun in aspect to Neptune, you have to take it easy. Neptune brings a very subtle, soft energy. Now is time to pull, rather than push.

On November 4th we have a Full Moon at 11° Taurus. This is a sweet full Moon making beautiful aspects to Neptune – the Moon is sextile to Neptune and Sun is trine to Neptune.

But that’s not the full story. The Full Moon ruler, Venus is exactly opposite Uranus, the planet of surprises. This makes the Full Moon in Taurus a great time for love and romance – don’t be afraid to venture yourself through unknown territories.

On November 5th Mercury enters Sagittarius. After spending several weeks in the deep waters of Scorpio, Mercury is now ready for a new adventure.

This placement favors big endeavors, big picture thinking, and is not so good for detail work. Sagittarius is about “believing without seeing”, about higher knowledge, beyond proofs and facts.

That’s why Mercury is in detriment in Sagittarius. Mercury is all about facts, and proofs, is about what you can see, hear, and touch. Our mind can get a bit confused in the coming weeks – the best way to deal with this transit it to allow your intuition to take over.

On November 7th Venus enters Scorpio. Love becomes ALL or NOTHING, more private, more mysterious, more intense. In the next weeks, making a deep, true connection with someone who understands you becomes more important than ever.

This is a good transit to boost intimacy in relationships. Just be aware that Venus in Scorpio needs trust. Be ready to offer your trust first. Don’t wait for the other to give it to you. They are going through the same process – someone has to make the first step.

On November 11th Saturn trines Uranus for the 3rd and last time. Saturn trine Uranus is one of the most important transits of the year.  Saturn represents our foundations, our security. Uranus is the pioneer of change. Saturn and Uranus represent the old and the new coming together.

You can now let go of some duties or responsibilities which restrict you. You can let go of some old habits which don’t serve you anymore and introduce new habits, new routines in your life. The transition will be smooth thanks to the positive aspect between Saturn and Uranus.

You will feel the benefits of this transit especially if you have planets or angles around 25° in Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or if your ascendant is Capricorn or Aquarius.

On November 13th Venus is conjunct Jupiter and Mercury is square Neptune.

Today you will be more open than usual to the good things in life. You will feel more appreciation and gratitude for what life has to offer, and focus much more on the positive aspects of things.

You will also be more generous and more open not only to give, but also to receive love. Your self-worth will improve and you will feel more content about yourself, more at peace with who you are. As a result, the others will start appreciating you even more.

On November 16th Venus in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces. Venus is the planet of love and Neptune is the planet of higher love. Needless to say that love vibrations will resonate at a higher frequency today.

If you are born in a water sign or if you have many planets in water signs you will feel like a fish in the water during this transit.

On November 18th we have a New Moon at 26° Scorpio. The New Moon is quincunx Uranus in Aries and the ruler of the New Moon, Pluto, is square Mars in Libra. This New Moon is Scorpio is pretty challenging and will ask you to find healthy ways to assert your power.

If you are the type of person who imposes their will on others, the New Moon will be particularly tough, because it will ask you to surrender to a higher power.

If in contrary, you have issues in asserting yourself, the New Moon will help you get in touch with your inner power.

On November 19th Mars is square Pluto, bringing our anger and frustration to the surface. We all have anger inside ourselves. Mars square Pluto will ask us to deal with it in one way or another.

Mars represents our self-will. Pluto is the higher octave of Mars, representing the Universe’s will, the higher power which is beyond our control. Because the two will clash, power struggles are inevitable.

Try to find a way to assert your will without entering into conflict with God. If frustration becomes overbearing, physical exercise can be a good way to deal with it.

If you have planets around 17° in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) you will be especially effected by this transit.

On November 21st  Sun enters Sagittarius. Happy birthday to all Sagittarius out there! Now is that time of the year to seek the truth, to search for meaning. Go into the world with faith – the Universe has your back!

On November 22nd Neptune goes direct at 11° Pisces. You will be reminded that you are part of something larger than yourself.

On November 25th Mercury in Sagittarius is trine Uranus in Aries. Writing, media, communication, crafting, DYI are favored. The quantity of emails, phones, internet activity can increase. If you have a trip planned today it will be particularly exciting.

This is a great day for inspirations of any kind. You mind will start downloading brilliant ideas from a higher source. Divine inspiration can come to you in the flash of a moment.

On November 27th Mercury is conjunct Saturn. This is a good day to organize, make plans, study, learn, do research, or any kind of activity which requires focus. If you have a project you’ve been postponing – this is a good time to tackle it and bring it to a completion, because your discipline, your concentration, your focus are at an all times high.

If you have planets or angles around 27° Sagittarius, or if your ascendant is Gemini, Virgo or Capricorn you will especially benefit from this transit.

Sun Conjunct Jupiter – A New Cycle Of Growth, Abundance And Transformation

Sun is conjunct Jupiter at 3° Scorpio. The Sun and Jupiter meet once a year to start a new cycle of growth and abundance.

Sun conjunct Jupiter is one of the most auspicious aspects in astrology. Sun represents our individuality, Sun is the planet we relate with the most. Sun is the biggest planet, the giver of light and life.

The Moon, the planets and the stars can only shine by light reflected from the Sun. When the Moon shines in the sky, it is actually reflected sunlight that you see. The Sun is the filter through which we see and make sense of the world.

Jupiter is the next biggest planet, in fact it’s the biggest planet in our solar system if we count the Sun as a star (in Astrology though, both the Sun and the Moon are referred to as ‘planets’ even if in fact they are not –  the Sun is a star, and the Moon is a satellite).

Jupiter, the giant gas ball, is associated in astrology with growth, expansion, abundance and good fortune. Jupiter is a big bubble – its solid rock is assumed to be not much larger that any other ‘solid’ planet such as the Earth, Venus, Mars, Mercury or Pluto. But because of the gas, Jupiter appears to be massive.

One can argue that its giant size is just a facade, and that Jupiter just appears to be a giant, when in fact, it is not. But things are not that simple. Jupiter has always been associated with belief and faith.

Faith – think a bit about it. We all need it. We need to have faith to move from one state of being to another, to start something new. And faith is a bit like a gas bubble. We cannot touch it, but it inspires us to move on and grow.

If you don’t believe in yourself, if you don’t believe in your prospects for success, what are the chances of undertaking the next challenge? Of going for your dreams?

We all need Jupiter in our life, we need something to believe in, something greater than ourselves.

Imagine a world without Jupiter. A world where Saturn is the biggest planet. Imagine a word where every little step comes with doubt, with disbelief. How much progress do you think is possible in such a scenario?

If Saturn corresponds to what psychologists call the “fixed mindset”, Jupiter is about the “growth mindset”.

We have a fixed mindset when we believe our talents and our resources are scarce and static. We have a growth mindset when we believe that we can continuously develop our abilities through dedication and hard work.

What makes the difference between the fixed and the growth mindset? The belief that growth and progress are possible.

“In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.” – Carol Dwek

Let’s come back to Sun conjunct Jupiter.

Sun and Jupiter have many things in common: both Sun and Jupiter are spiritual, masculine planets, they are both generous, they are both interested in growth and progress.

When Sun and Jupiter meet we have the two big giants coming to create something even greater together.

Sun conjunct Jupiter is an auspicious time to start a big venture, a big project, to do that thing you always wanted to do but you were too afraid of. Jupiter will give you the dose of optimism you need, the faith that the universe is there to support you in your most daring endeavors.

Sun and Jupiter meet at the 3rd degree of Scorpio, enhancing Scorpio themes: shared resources, transformation, crises of all sorts, sex and intimacy, legacies of any kind.

Scorpio is all you share with others, the good and the bad: a Scorpio transit can bring you an inheritance, but can also bring taxes to be paid.

Scorpio is about what you can win without putting any effort, and also about what you can lose even if you have not done anything wrong. Scorpio is your legacy.

Scorpio rules the big cycles of life, birth and death – all the things we don’t have any say about. The most truthful and brutal things in life. Scorpio rules our instinct to reproduce ourselves, our instinct to die, the way we use and mis-use power.

Sigmund Freud who had a Scorpio Ascendant, described life as a conflict between our instinct to reproduce ourselves and our drive to die. It is the conflict between the sexual urge of Eros (Greek God of lust) and the urge of Thanatos (Greek God of death), that allows life as we know it.

Sun Jupiter Scorpio

No wonder Scorpio is associated with crises – Scorpio wants to bring to the surface all the debris, so you can move on to the next level of your life.

Sometimes you need to delve into the depths to pull yourself into the light. Sometimes you need to fight againts two different forces which pull you in different directions. This existential conflict is the very essence of Scorpio.

Jupiter ingress into Scorpio coincided with the Weinstein scandal and with the #metoo movement. Jupiter magnified and brought into our awareness all the Scorpionic themes: sex, crises, dealing with the taboo, bringing secrets to the surface.

Sexual abuse, the misuse of power have always been taboo topics. But it is only by talking openly about them, by bringing them into the awareness, that we can heal them and transform ourselves.

Transformation can take place when you let the old you die off to make space for the new. The good news with Jupiter is that the new you will be all about growth and expansion. Because Jupiter is the great benefactor, the transition will be smooth, and you will receive all the support you need.

Jupiter is the guru, the preacher, the spiritual teacher. He wants you to become a guru, a teacher yourself by getting in touch with the most intimate, forbidden, taboo sides of your psyche. A therapist, a psychologist is the ultimate achetype of Jupiter conjunct Sun in Scorpio.

Sun conjunct Jupiter will invite you to get in touch with the guru, with the believer, with the teacher inside you.

Do you believe you have all the resources you need to expand your life?

Are you ready to confront the darker side of yourself in the process?

How can you become the greatest possible version of yourself? What is ONE THING you need to let go off? What is ONE THING you want to invite into your life to allow transformation to happen?

New Moon in Libra – A Sudden Flash Of Divine Insight

Every New Moon is special, but this particular New Moon in Libra is truly special. Why is that? Because it’s EXACTLY opposite Uranus, the planet of revolutions, surprises – the planet of being true to one’s self.

More exactly, the New Moon in Libra takes place on October 19th at 26°35’ in Libra, while Uranus is at 26°31’in Aries. The opposition between the New Moon and Uranus is within an orb of 0°04’. Very rarely we have such a close configuration occurring at the same time with a New Moon.

Uranus New Moon

What exactly does it mean to have a New Moon in Libra in opposition to Uranus?

Firstly, what is a New Moon? A new Moon occurs at the magic moment when the Sun, the divine masculine, aligns with the Moon, the divine Feminine, to start a new cycle of creation.

We have a New Moon every month, one New Moon in each of the 12 zodiac signs. The New Moon is that time of the year when we have a new beginning related to the themes of the sign where it takes place.

Last month we had a new Moon in Virgo, and in November we are going to have a new Moon in Scorpio.

This month we have a New Moon in Libra, meaning that we are going to experience new beginnings related to Libra: relationships, partnerships of any kind, beauty, harmony, peace, and justice.

If in the first six signs, from Aries to Virgo, we relate to the world based on our own personal experiences, in Libra we realize that we don’t have all the answers, and we start to look for answers outside ourselves.

That’s why Libra rules relationships – it’s within the sign of Libra that the soul does not want to be alone anymore, and wants to merge with another instead.

According to the Greek mythology, at the beginning of time, humans originated in pairs, bound within one body, within one soul. But Zeus started to fear power of this bond, and he split them in two.

Because they could not bear their loneliness,  the ‘halves’ started to wander the Earth in search of their lost soul mate, to reunite and become whole again.

This is the myth of the soulmate – each time we have a New Moon in Libra, we crave to unite with whatever it is that is missing from our lives.

“Love is born into every human being; it calls back the halves of our original nature together; it tries to make one out of two and heal the wound of human nature.” ― Plato, The Symposium

What is it that is missing from your life?

Look in which house you have Libra to get more clues of what you need to reunite with on October 19th.

New Moons are not easy to grasp.

At this phase of the lunar cycle, the Moon is completely invisible, disappearing from the sky into the Sun’s glare. This is a time of insight, this is a time to design a new blueprint. Few days later, when the Moon becomes visible again, we can actually go into the world to manifest the intention.

Starting something new at the time of the New Moon does not mean you have to literally do something, manifest something material – it simply means a new insight will come into your awareness.

And here comes Uranus.

In this dark mysterious place, where a new genesis begins, here comes Uranus, like lightning, to say “I’ve come here to liberate you”.

In that space, where everything is possible, here it comes, the God of the sky, bringing you the divine insight, bringing you the fire stolen from the Gods to light your way.

Uranus is the ultimate rebel – whether you like his ways or not, Uranus comes to liberate you, to show you there is a higher plan for you.

On October 19th, Uranus will bring you one insight that will turn your life upside down, but will also set you on the path of your true purpose and liberation.

Because Uranus is still retrograde, the insight will come from the realm of the unconscious.

The insight will come all of the sudden. Uranus is the God of the sky, the planet of higher intellect and higher wisdom – the message will come like a flash of lightning. You will have a sudden awareness of what you need to do.

Don’t expect anything like a Mercury insight. Mercury makes sense of the world through the 5 senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, or taste. Uranus is the 6th sense, which has nothing to do with the world as we know it.

So if we put everything together, what does it mean to have a New Moon in Libra opposite the Great Awakener, Uranus?

It means that a major insight will come to you and bring balance into your life, and will make you feel whole again.

With the New Moon in Libra opposite Uranus, you will find harmony by embracing the truth.

The truth will at first shake you, and will then it will set you free.

Sometimes we work so hard, and nothing goes our way. And then, all of a sudden, in the blink of a second our life is changed forever.

Uranus aspecting the New Moon will ask you to invite possibilities in your life. If you are not going anywhere on your current path, maybe the time has come to change course, to do something completely different.

Because Uranus is in Aries, the sign farthest away from Libra, you might need to do something completely different indeed.

What are you in denial about? Uranus will come to expose any blind spot, and will make you see things from a completely different perspective.

Maybe what you think you want is not really what you need. Maybe you need something completely different to feel whole again.

The Sabian for the New Moon in Libra is “An Airplane Sails, High In The Clear Sky”. What a beautiful metaphor for Uranus, the God of the sky.  A new path is open, to make way for new possibilities and new adventures.

You can finally find freedom from the limitations of human consciousness, freedom from separation. You have never been half of a whole. You are whole; that is your true nature.
