Happy Sagittarius Full Moon to you all. This is a Lunar eclipse so things could be ending while new ones begin. You could also begin doing something you never thought you could or would do.
A full moon is square from the sun, so it illuminates the hidden. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is retrograde grade so the energy will be one of us looking in the mirror and seeing where we have been just too much. With this influence, we could be learning some deep truths about ourselves, how relate to ourselves, and other truths coming out.
Mars and Neptune, hanging out in Pisces, is forming a square with this full moon and the Sun. This energy can ignite us on a new path, helping us go after our goals, and we can really be inspired by our dreams – both what we want to create and while we sleep. Pay attention to your dreams the next few days, journaling them is always a good idea.
Be careful here as you will really need to use you Intuition and use your common sense/intelligence because Neptune can bring us illusions and distractions so it will be very important to stay conscious and focused.
Saturn is still retrograde in Aquarius and this is actually helping the energy by taking some pressure off of us. This is a perfect time to examine your challenges, reassess them, and come up with a plan to get through them. Some may feel like they’re out of touch and having a hard time grounding during this time and could feel like their life has been uprooted a bit. Interestingly, Saturn is connected to society as well as government and this energy influences changes in those areas. Strategy will be the key to success.
Venus is retrograde in Gemini and this influences our relationships. If you are having problems in your relationship, now is a good time to work them out. Communication within all relationships is really heightened and this can touch on our emotions so this could cause friction, maybe something that is brought up from the past that is still lingering. Gemini energy is our chatty-Kathy so this is good energy to get to know others. You can be more willing to be open to new relationships. Venus touches on money as well, so you could have a financial opportunity make itself known to you.
Eclipses bring change, and with lunar eclipses it touches our emotions and those things we are attached to. Change can be scary because of the unknown, but that is our only constant. Always remember that endings do bring new beginnings. Pluto is retrograde and still in Capricorn. The Lord of the Underworld destroys in order to create better.
The year 2020 started out with an eclipse and a rare conjunction with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, and remember we are in the beginning Age of Aquarius so they’re will be a breaking down of certain things and will help us create better for the years to come.
Today the Moon is in Aries and it is in a conjunction (same degrees) with Lilith. With this placement and Venus retrograde in Gemini, emotions could be really high and very assertive- drastic. Luckily Mars is in Pisces offering some calmness but we really shouldn’t hold back on our feelings. There could be circumstances that may trigger some old wounds, you need to pay attention.
Lilith is the wounded feminine, and in Aries she wants what she wants when she wants it and is highly passionate. Sometimes we need to understand that proper communication needs to take place in order for our needs to be met.
Today is a 9 which is about completion as well as earthly lessons, coming full circle. Listen to your Intuition. The number 9 is a mystical number as well, so pay attention to what is going on around you. It is also about selflessness and service, but be sure not to sacrifice yourself – especially for the wrong cause.
We began the last week of January with the moon in Pisces, which had emotions high. We could’ve found ourselves in emotional conversations, and this energy reminded us that people need to fight their own battles..as they have a journey to walk of their own. We’ve had a bit of sensitive energy here lately, but its more of us trying to figure things out a bit.
Now I do want to remind you all that we still have Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn just a couple of degrees away from each other and they are still offering the breaking away of the old government/ old ways of doing things, the old harsh patriarch energy and its time to move to something new. Now when pluto, our lord of the underworld, the energy enhances and he will always reveal the shadow side of these entities. This is a change of power. Just look at what is happening in countries right now. This energy reveals corruption, it reveals what has been happening behind the scenes and it brings out all the corruption of those in higher positions as well. Remember, pluto destroys in order to create, he wants to create better
Saturn says you get what you deserve, so if you have worked hard, you will get the payback.
Pluto will be in Capricorn until 2024, so this is long term energy and well breaking away and rebuilding takes time.
This is a pivotal time for us here on Earth, and if you use this energy positive you can really create a wonderful life.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, just step back and take a breath for a minute because this is a superb time for creating as you will be very supported at this time.
Venus has been in Pisces offering us great creative energy, immerse yourself in beauty, care for you, and make sure you draw healthy boundaries. This transit wants us to create from what we value, to put our energy into that which we truly resonate with. These emotional energies are coming at us like waves, stay grounded. You may feel like escaping and you should for at least a little while to destress and allow yourself the time to center yourself.
You can find yourself daydreaming, allow yourself to as this energy can bring you wonderful inspiration.
We also had Venus and Neptune conjunction in Pisces as well. This has been a lot of water energy.
But now She has moved into Aries and here she is ready to go, but I will get more into that in a moment because she is influencing this full moon we are building up to.
Around February 3rd -4th, Mercury will move into Pisces, more energy from the emotion tides will be filtering in. This energy is daydreaming at it’s finest!
Pisces is very dreamy, especially with its planet Neptune transiting through its waters. Communication may not be great at this time but it does offer a great opportunity for inner growth; such as helping you use your imagination to create what you want to experience and you could see things that you didn’t see before, or even understand concepts you had problems grasping before. This energy offers us great potential to make life-changing improvements in our life.
This is a vast sea of imagination….so take advantage of it and make it work for you as mercury is beginning to slow down.
To me, these energies that we’ve been experiencing are about beginning to go to meaningful work. Some may be leaving their job to pursue another job that fits your personal purpose…many want to have a deeper meaningful work…shifting from everyday jobs to something that is more within their spiritual alignment.
This energy is one of perfect timing, we have the ability to begin again, the magnetic shield is lowering around the globe, so these cosmic energies will definitely help us live our lives with a deeper sense of purpose.
So without further delay, let’s talk about this full moon we are building up to. Today we have the moon in its home zodiac sign of cancer. Yes, this can bring high emotions, but it is one of nurturing yourself. It is the Mother aspect, it is about our homes and that which is sacred unto us. This is very creative energy as well, its sensuous, receptive and protective. But cancer’s, believe it or not, are not known to show their true feelings, which creates moodiness, and self-pitying attitude. So we want to share our feelings but do so in constructive ways. If you have your moon in cancer, you are probably great in artistic endeavors.
This sensitive energy really aids our imagination, helping us further have ideas on how and what we want to create.
From this energy, we will slide into the bright energy of LEO. On Feb 9th at 2:33am EST, we will have our Full Snow Moon in the warm sign of LEO. Yes, I do love that LEO energy, it is magnetic and creative and it gives this moon stability that is very much needed.
Full moons sit directly opposite of the sun, so full moon illuminates what was being hidden from us, sometimes in plain sight. It reveals our subconscious to us. Sitting at 180 degrees away from the sun, this placement is screaming for us to go after our dreams and desires – to actively go after what you want. This moon will be standing alone, as it is opposite from the other planets at this time, so your emotional experiences could be bigger at this time. This placement of the moon wants us to have the finer things in life – good food, nice clothes but it can also bring out a very romantic side to us. This can also bring out a possessive side to us, so if this is something that you have been working on this might come to light in this moon – wanting you to heal and release it, moving past it. This moon will bring some big light into our life, our heart, and it is helping us to build, grow our inner power, who we are at our core, it will pull us back into the Self and it wants us to act – we have our dreams now it’s time to act.
Now to fully understand the energies of this full moon, we have to look at the other planets that are influencing this moon.
A big influence on this moon is Mars, sitting in the fiery sign of Sagittarius gives us extra energy to charge forward. Mars represents how we move in our world, and this energy is offering us more action energy and it pulls us out of our mind and places us in the driver seat to go! Mars is igniting energy, and he is igniting this moon. Mars is at 25 degrees of sag and he is getting close to that galactic center. Now if you remember back at the end of November 2019 I spoke about the Galactic center as Jupiter and Venus were conjunct in that placement. So when a planet moves through this area it then connects energetically allowing the galactic/cosmic energy to come to us. Since our magnetic shield is failing, it is allowing more and more cosmic energy into our earth. This is what many are saying is causing the energetic shifts on our earth – this is shifts in consciousness taking us to higher consciousness – a spiritual evolution. Now not only is Mars is offering a supportive energy to the Leo moon, and it is also offering supporting energy to the sun which is in Aquarius. This is saying NOW is the time to act upon our visions of our future. It is now time to own who you are, your core. This is connecting us to the conjunction of Jupiter and ven at the galactic center in late November and early December, can you remember what you were working at creating then? Mars is igniting that energy as well…it is time to act. This is great energy to connect to the Divine, aligning the heart, mind, and soul and dare to go after your dreams. This can be the hero’s journey, it is about taking that leap to access a pearl of higher wisdom, to create the highest good of the self.
Mars influencing the moon and sun provides us great courageous energy, this is a risk that you can trust. This could be inner work, or we could actually be moving, traveling in order to spiritually evolve.
Now right now Jupiter is having an important placement, one that will happen 3 times this year, it is sextile Neptune. Neptune is our dreams, and when Jupiter’s expansive energy connects with Neptune this is when the dots connect, it brings a bigger vision to our dreams, this is divine timing…so the message here is it is time to build that dream.
But that’s not all, on the 7th venus entered the sign of Aries…can we say fire??
Mars is Aries’ planet, and we know that Mars is getting drenched in the cosmic energy of the galactic center, which does influence Aries’ energy. So venus transiting through Aries our instincts will be heightened, this can be some very direct energy, its honest and doesn’t hold anything back…you may feel like you need to stand up or yourself..or something you believe in. Chiron is still in the zodiac sign Aries as well, he is our wounded healer, so She will add more healing energy to those places that we’ve been working on. One area here is the fear of being who we are. Many of us hid behind some sort of mask, maybe we are fearful to be who we know in our core we are.
This is the energy of fully accepting yourself for who you are. This is also touching on healing the masculine and feminine energies and having them work in harmony. This is healing the old heavy hand of the patriarch, and bringing that energy more to the center. Remember going too far one way is just as bad as going too far another way. We will have the courage to heal during this time and the strength to face what we need to face and to come out of the other side. We are learning to operate in our power, as we are living from our heart. It almost feels like a renewed supportive energy
Passions will be high, but I feel this is an energy of working from our head, heart, and soul. We are aligning those and then pursuing forward. This is what divine timing is about. We can’t just be led by our head, or just be led by our hearts. When we are deciding where we want to go, we have to feel good about it. I feel some people will romantically connect with other like-minded individuals and possibly creating your dreams together.
Mercury is in the mix as well. He is now in his shadow zone and is slowing down, as he is preparing to the station position and to Rx on Feb 17th. This is completion energy, so this time around will not be so bad as it is one of letting go of fear, having clarity on things we were uncertain about. This will be trusting energy here, and it will connect us to altered states of awareness…in his Rx motion, it will connect us to the esoteric as well.
On the 3rd, Saturn entered it’s shadow zone as well at 24-degrees of Capricorn, by May 11th he will be at 1 degree of Aquarius then will station and pursue a retrograde motion, taking him back to 25 degrees cap by September 29 and we will fully be out of his shadow by January 2021.
We will talk more about those Rx we have coming up in the next show.
This LEO full moon will really light up the sky, as it is urging us to go forward with our inspirations, our dreams, and desires. To be true to who we are, the sun is Leo’s planet so this is really involving the evolution of the Self. This is cosmic divine timing..now is the time. We are going back to what truly matters to us, understanding ourselves self and working on sharing our gifts with the world. This is brave, courageous energy and it is fully supportive energy. This energy encourages us to embrace who we truly are, to active create our visions, to trust in ourselves, to feel good about ourselves, and gives us the energy to begin this journey. This is completion energy, but with every end, there is a new beginning – make this energy count!
This is the astrology portion of my show that aires every Thursday night at 9pm EST on www.TheCauldron.net
I do updates on my social media pages so I do urge you to follow me on those as I do offer updates and other tidbits that I wasn’t able to share on the AstroTarot show.
Please join me this, and every Thursday night for the AstroTarot show at 9pm EST.
This is a recap of the AstroTarot show that aired January 9. 2020 on http://www.thecauldron.net
Tune in every Thursday night at 9pm eastern time (check your time zone) for the AstroTarot show, where we’ll discuss the cosmic energies and influence as well as a divination reading… bringing that energy down to us.
As above, so below!
Let’s have a row call as to where each planet is right now….the sun is in Capricorn, the moon is in cancer, mercury is in Capricorn, venus is in aquarius, Mars has moved into the sign of sagittarius, Jupiter is in Capricorn, Saturn is in Capricorn, uranus is in taurus still Rx, and Neptune is still in Pisces, and pluto is in capricorn.
In 2020 will be a historic year, turning point and shifts,, it will be a turning point as we have many planetary turning points of endings and beginnings of cycles.
Jupiter will align with Saturn in Aquarius at the end of this year in December. 2020 will be about endings and beginnings, and outer planets will be moving from earth signs to air and fire signs. We will be going from an energy of material, job for life, security, steady permanence into fast energy…very digitized and electrified. This is a really big shift that we will be experiencing. Corruption will become exposed and old orders will begin to be removed. Up until 2026 while Uranus is in Taurus, we will become more in touch with our Earth, changing the way we look at money….such as being materialistic and keeping up with the Jones’. We will want simplicity and only wanting that which we need, not really into gathering things…we want to have experiences and to actually experience life.
We have 5 planets in capricorn. Capricorn represents the strong arm of the law, it is the governments and other types of institutions. Capricorn energy is ambitious, it is purposeful, frugal, and very practical. It is a cardinal sign, cardinal is latin for important, and Capricorn, just like other cardinal signs of Aries, cancer, and Libra, mark the turning point of a season. So it has that intiatiory energy. Capricorn’s planet is Saturn and he is our Father Time as he helps us draw those important boundaries we need to protect ourselves..as well as teaching us to value time, therefore Capricorns are said to have great patience. Cautious and disciplined, Capricorn is responsible and conservative as well as self sufficient – Self mastery!
I would suggest meditation, yoga, some sort of practice that has you centering yourself as you will need this inner anchor.
Now on to the a major meeting that will definitely cause a shift in energy, the meeting of Pluto and Saturn. Now these two planets will be conjunct on January 12 in the sign of Capricorn, and what that means is that they will share the same degree. Now the last time this happened was in November 1982 in the zodiac sign of Libra which is gentle energy…do you remember what was going on in your life at that time?
Now every time these two brush up against each other, meaning they aspect each other, major changes occur. This will mark the end of the Saturn-Pluto cycle (which includes the totality of the aspects between them) during their time spent together. Like I said, 2020 will be a year of endings and beginnings. Last time in Capricorn was 1517. This cycle will end at 22 degrees of Capricorn; sabian symbol for this degree is A General Accepting defeat gracefully. Winning or losing doesn’t matter as much as how you play the game. Now their energy together is a tough energy. Saturn is Father time, he sets limits, he is about responsibility, and he helps us set boundaries which is very important for our security. Pluto is transformation, the Lord of the Underworld destroys in order to create, he sheds the skin of the old to make way for the new. These two energetic expressions together mean changes, ever radical change to make us understand certain limits in our outer world, our society. Think about what has outlived it time. Now even though these two may have caused great havoc in the past, in capricorn their energy will be a bit more conservative. Remember, capricorn likes us to store energy so we can create for the future ahead of us..that which will be best for the long run. This will provide an energy of self reliance, self responsibility, as well as patience. Saturn and Pluto are the energy of serious business and hard work. They’re meet up will bring changes in just about every area of our life. This energy provokes power, the kind that is the hard hand, the non-democratic way; expect propaganda and power plays, changes within our food supply, our Earth, trading globally.
Other aspects we must consider
Saturn conjunct Pluto shows a stellium in capricorn that includes the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres, and they are all square Eris. Eris was named after the Goddess of discourse and discord. So this will affect big business, governments, big organizations like the UN, NATO, world trade, and especially powerful countries. We will feel some of the rebellious energy that Eris provides, but we will need to think things through first…this is not a time to rush into action. Eris will be squaring pluto all through 2020.
Mercury will conjunct Saturn as well, so this will help us get our mind straight and focus on what we need to focus on. This is very productive energy, just make sure you don’t get yourself stuck in a rut. Don’t dwell on the bad, Turn negatives into positives,
Sun will be conjunct mercury as well and this will help us communicate quite clearly. We have ideas and our minds are active and we may want to share it with the world. Self expression is heightened at this time, if you have to speak in public, this is great energy to do so in. You have a lot of information you want to share…and you will share it. Menatally, this will be a busy time.
The Sun and Saturn Conjunction can take us back in time…maybe even triggering a time when you had difficulties with your own father or father figure. This is a very conservative placement, one of hard work and great responsibility. Now, for some you may be stepping up into the father role, maybe becoming a teacher or mentor. This energy can make it uncomfortable to share your emotions…so writing them out can be very beneficial. Write in your journal, write poetry, write a song, with the influence of mercury there is definitely something you want to communicate.
The sun will also be conjuncting pluto which bring intense energy…this is the energy of great power. This is a great time to access what has power over you, and learn self mastery. It is a great time for self reflection, looking at your shadows and acknowledging the bad habits and stop them as well as dealing with addictions. This very intuitive energy, which can possibly make you be a bit more aggressive than normal. Don’t try to make things more than they are, you can dig too deep. This could also be a time where some of you may be some shocking news. This energy is about soul evolution, so grow from it.
Mercury conjunct pluto is communication with depth. This energy wants to us really get down beneath the surface and communicate what was hidden. There could be secrets coming out at this time., mental manipulation, your energy could be a bit jumpy, so make sure you take time to ground and center yourself, this is an energy of profound discoveries…this can include things about yourself, your ancestors, this is one of spiritual transformation.
From these transit I really heard the advice of if its broken, fix it. The time is now. Endings and beginnings will be what this year is about. Just remember to keep as centered as you can. Too much of one thing is just as bad as too much of another. Extreme is extreme…while true, we may not find a true balance, we can work at keeps things as fair and just as we can, we must honor our individuality, our uniqueness- that which makes you YOU, and honor each other’s place in this web of life.
Around Winter Solstice this year, Saturn will be moving to Aquarius and the energy will shift.
I know it’s a bit lengthy but there is a lot going on in our Cosmos. I hope you enjoyed reading this update.
Rhis is from my AstroTarot show that aired January 9, 2020.
First off, let’s start with a little numerology. The year 2020 breaks down to a four in numerology. In numerology this number is all about a strong foundation. The number 4 represents stability, family, home, order, conservation, peace, our physical reality, and practical solutions. This number is all about getting things done. The underlying energy of this year is going to be about gaining a clear vision (20/20 vision) and accomplishing it. This energy wants us to focus on what truly matters in our lives, looking at our dreams, then working toward physically manifesting them. This year will provide opportunities for us and will tell us to go forward and truly invest in yourself and commit to creating a strong foundation that you will be able to build your dreams on.
January is considered the first month in the Gregorian calendar, and Julius Caesar named it after the God Janus, which has two faces…one looking behind him and one looking forward. And as this month is considered to be the beginning of a new year, we can definitely understand this concept. Now when we add the first month to the numerology we get 5. The number 5 is a very spiritual number, it is about the esoteric and metaphysical teachings, it is about living life and truly encapsulates the phrase of “we are spiritual beings having a human experience. It represents our sight, taste, touch, hearing, and smell; as well as Earth, Air, fire, water, and Spirit. We have 5 fingers on each hand and 5 toes on each foot. So you could say this number is a very sensual number. This number can seem undependable and maybe indecisive, but remember this number is about experiences life. This is the energy of being the seeker and the teacher at the same time. When we use 2 and 3 to get the number 5, it represents the sacred marriage. Helen Blavatsky said “5 is the spirit of life and human love”. It’s the adventure that calls to the number 5. The 5th card in the tarot is the Hierophant/shaman who is a bridge from this world to the otherworld….all this is one reason why the pentagram is so important. 5 reminds us that change is our only constant, as the number 5 is always moving…or I should say experiencing. Remember, it has the seekers energy, so it wants to go out and experience life in all of its essence. This also advises us that adaptation is essential in our world of constant change, as that will be our survival. As we move forward into this new year, sure we do look back at the past, and we should do so in an inventory way…what worked, what didn’t; what we need to change, to get better at, what we need to leave behind and what new paths we need to go down. A prophet and a dreamer at the same time, it’s no wonder we have this number to begin our year, as this is one that truly lives for the experience…speaking of which, let’s talk about what is coming us astrologically…talk about excitement. Yes, we have a lot of excitement this month.
I’ll be posting the rest in a separate post.
We have now opened the gate to the year 2020. Today is January 1, 2020 which promotes a new year for the Julian Calendar. January is named after the God Janus which has two faces, one facing the future and one facing the past. When I think of this God I immediately think of the present time, because it is our past decisions that have led us to the present and it is those same decisions that help us go forward into the future. As we sit here at the opening of the gate to the future many things can go through our minds, and many may feel completely overwhelmed at the energy that is taking place in our world today. Even in astrology the planets are releasing intense energies. So what does numerology have to say about this year?
The year 2020 equals 4 in numerology, and this number is all about a strong foundation. The number 4 represents stability, family, home, order, conservation, peace, our physical reality, and practical solutions. This number is all about getting things done. The underlying energy of this year is going to be about gaining a clear vision (20/20 vision) and accomplishing it.
This energy wants us to focus on what truly matters in our lives, looking at our dreams, then working toward physically manifesting them. This year will provide opportunities for us and will tell us to go forward and truly invest in yourself and commit to creating a strong foundation that you will be able to build your dreams on.
While 2019 was about creativity, expressing yourself, and alignment to who we are and the path we wish to go down; it was also about change. As you begin to align yourself to a path, as you begin to tap into your creativity, it does promote change in your life. The number 3 is a spiritual number, and it is also a gateway number, meaning the energy it emanates will have us in a transition state and gaining new perspectives. Which is what is needed to be able to align more to our inner truths.
The year 2019 gave us that energy for change to set us on the path that is more in harmony for us, 2020 will be the year for us to be fully conscious of our actions, committed to our self in where we are going so that we can open doors to great success in our life. This year, 2020, will be about accomplishments, making your dreams and desires a reality, one where we can gain real happiness and allow the financial energy to flow easily into your life.
Here’s to you on this Gregorian Julian New Year, 2020, may you tap into this energy and manifest your desires, making your dreams a reality, and creating the life that you want!
