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.
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.
This is a recap of the AtroTarot show that aired on November 7, 2019.
Please note there will be no show on the 14th.
Good morning Starshines!
I am guessing you all know that Mercury is retrograde and he will be retrograde from oct 31 (at 11:41am et) – nov 20, 2019 (2:12pm et)…now 2 wks before and 2 wks after it is considered Mercury’s shadow time. Mercury retrograde (Rx) has become quite the buzz, but many do not really understand what it is about. They only understand the “miscommunication” or the concept of whatever can go wrong will. I want us to see it in a different light because retrogrades are actually a gift to us. You see the planets are not “out to get us”, they are completely neutral and do not cause things to happen to us – they simply explain the underlying energy that we might be feeling at a certain time. Retrogrades are completely normal, and actually, give us a time to go inward and pull our energy back to us a bit. So I want to explain this a bit so you don’t feel panicked or anxious about this time. Remember you are in charge of yourself, and I want to help you make the most of these energies.
Mercury went retrograde on October 31, 2019 in Scorpio (24 degrees) and will travel backwards in Scorpio (to 12 degrees), then on November 20th he will station and proceed . Now there are many blessings of retrogrades; is it helps us see what we have missed, helps us get clarity on those things we need clarity on, helps us see where we need to slow down, and helps us declutter our lives a bit. When life gets busy and hectic, there are things we miss, maybe we have been focusing too much on the little things instead of looking at the bigger picture. Mercury is the fastest moving planet and it associated with our mind and traveling. Retrogrades simply help us slow down for a minute. Now sure other planets go retrograde as well. In fact, planets go retrograde for nearly a ⅓ of the year, Mercury goes retrograde 3-4 times per calendar year. When a planet is retrograde, it is the closest to the Earth. So with the outer planets their energy is more subtle, but the energy is long term being felt for many years in our future. So when Mercury goes retrograde, since it is closer to the Earth, it’s energy is really felt. It is like going 60 mph down the road and slamming on the breaks, the popping the gear in reverse and going backwards. So yes, it can be unsettling.
Mercury is our logic, it is how we send and receive messages as well as our money. The words mercantile/merchant come from the word Mercury. This tells us to slow down our thinking, and get out of our head so much. Mercury, can be a trickster, so with all documents and business deals you might be signing or putting together, make sure you are reading all the fine print and make sure you are covering yourself. This is a time to watch your money, where is it going? Are you investing in the things that are the most beneficial for you?
Yes, retrogrades do bring us to the RE’s; reorganizing, reprioritizing, reviewing, it is time to back up your computer, make sure you car is serviced, care for all electrical devices, people (ex’s) from your past coming back into your life, reconsider things, reconnect with loved ones, renegotiate, to finish up on things you have been working on, it is a great time for creativity (writing, drawing, dancing, painting) excellent time to begin reading that book you’ve been wanting to read for months, slowing down and meditation and journaling…just think of the RE’s.
It will allow you the time to review things in your life, gaining a deeper understanding. These 3 weeks will be a blessing as it will give us a moment to be out of our head, so we can truly have a deep reflection on your life and all that has happened this past year. it’s time to reassess your life and call back your energy where it is no longer needed. I will say you might have to watch how you communicate with others. As at this time you may want to go inward and be away from the world, you still need to be conscious that somethings need to be said and some maybe not.

The Libra Full Moon will be exact March 20, 2019, at 9:42 pm est, 6:42 pm pt and on March 21st at 1:42 am UK time… you’ll to need to check for your time zone if different time. At full moons the moon sits opposite the sun, that is why it is known as a time of illumination. At this time the sun is illuminating the moon at its full strength…the shadows are introduced to the light. This moon is also a super full moon and the term super moon means the moon is close to the earth. For this moon, she will be sitting opposite the sun in Aries…the Feminine is facing the masculine. To me, this really going to be an intense moon when it comes to relationships…with yourself as well as others. Now normally being opposite is uncomfortable as it does have ‘exposing’ energy, but here there are other planets supporting this meeting and the conversations are quite juicy. This illumination could have us looking at our Self in all of our relationships and how we, at our core, feel about them. Libra’s planet is Venus (Mars is in Taurus who’s planet is also Venus). And Venus is at 23 degrees of Aquarius. So relationships are very much highlighted at this time. Venus is forming a square with her lover Mars (which is Aries planet) is in Taurus…and Taurus is about our senses, but it is also slow and steady and in this position is motivated by its physical wants and needs.
The Sun represents our Core, it is who we are, and it is sitting in Aries. Aries is I AM, it is all about the Self, this energy can be about actively going after you desire
But there are other planets to consider here. The sun will be meeting Chiron who is sitting at 1 degree in Aries during the full moon, remember Chiron is the wounded healer and represents our deep woundedness so this energy can cause us to feel vulnerable and insecure with where we are going. Aries is initiation energy, it heralds a new beginning…this energy is about birthing a new YOU. With Chiron bringing up these insecurities we could easily feel timid with our future because the energy is still unfolding.
So many of us may be feeling like you’re really not sure what direction your moving in…but know you are moving forward. We may have many things put before us, but we are vetting them, we are seeing which path is the best for us, which path will honor what we value in our lives.
With this full moon mixed with the spring equinox, along with the exchange between mars and venus, a balance of ‘give and take’ is looked at as well. This Equinox is really adding that balance…freely take and freely give, especially in our relationships.
Venus is in Aquarius and this is about marching to the beat of your own drum, it is about being free, being able to be yourself. It is independent energy.
Internally we are looking at how we respond or act in all the relationships in your life. Are you the one doing all the giving, or are you the one doing all the taking. When we talk about equality, we see this as one having the same rights as the other, but it goes deeper than that.
In our society today, the feminine energy is on the rise and there has been a negative glare shifted toward the negative impact of the patriarch which has caused the unbalance in mas and fem energy, which in turn as affected the masculine energy as a whole. This has brought up deep-seated things that we might not want to acknowledge, let alone face. This really takes us into an area of having to face our inner demons. And this is for ALL of us…and remember what is being worked out inside, is also being worked on outside…as within, so without.
The aspect of this moon…the moon is having a very harmonious conversation with Venus which is located at 23 in Aquarius and is at sextile Jupiter at 23 degrees of Sagittarius. Uranus is still at 0 degrees of Taurus, while Mars in the sign of Taurus is also at 23 degrees and it is trine with Pluto at 22 degrees Capricorn, the south node at 23 degrees Capricorn and Saturn at 19 degrees of Capricorn. This is tremendous energy supporting the Spring equinox Libra full moon. We may feel a bit unsure of what is next on our journey, but we have to trust in our Self, trust the unfolding of life, and listen to our inner guidance system…our intuition or what many call our “gut feelings”. Now some see this is a definite opposition that can really bring disruptions in our relationships…but I see the other side of this. Venus sextile Jupiter is wanting to you to get out and mingle with those of like mind, those that have the same values you have, those that vibe with you. This conversation is saying do what you love and enjoy the freedom of being self-reliant. And Mars and it’s trine with Pluto, south node, and Saturn is wanting long term, commitment, loyalty, it is about wanting what is safe and secure. And see this as…if we are making relationships with others that are on our wavelength, those that have the same values we have, those understand and can benefit our lives…and can have the best of both worlds. When we are in these relationships that are balanced, we are able to be who we are, we are able to commit to that which truly matters to us, we are able to grow and develop in our own ways. We have to be willing to walk away from that which doesn’t have a place in our lives. There is an energy of simpleness here as we are looking into our future and what we want to have in our lives for the long term. We want to be able to shine our light but to be in a relationship with another. And this can actually be done, but it does take one to be fully conscious. Relationships can be mirrors, and it may require you to work through the EGO. so for those that are in relationships at the current time, it is urging you to have your individuality, as well as honoring your commitment. There is definitely an energy of transition, and we must honor the cycle of our Earth. Not everything is meant to stay in our lives and if something is choosing to leave, if an ending has presented itself, you must detach yourself from it and move on.
Be careful here as mercury is still in Rx, so stay out of your head and use your senses. We have been working hard, but we can’t forget to go out and have some fun…we have to balance the every day with new adventures in our life. I feel a real shifting in all relationships instead of becoming lost in another and ending up in co-dependent ways, to one of honoring our Core self, while being committed to someone else, or something. Venus is wanting independence and Mars wants stability and this can happen when you are in relations with others that are in alignment with you.
Uranus in Taurus is reminding us that things do not happen overnight and to allow things to develop organically. Sure go after what you want, but understand the process of all things.
Neptune is not keeping it’s Self out of the picture here. He’s still in Pisces, so we have to be careful of illusions still. There could also be some secrets coming out and it being at 16 degrees and he is beginning his descent and this could mean for our outer/external world such as our environment, secrets could be coming out about foreign countries, things such as that. Within us we are shown the fantasy, we see the illusions, and we look for what is real, what is going to sustain us in our future to come.
Mercury is still Rx in Pisces and he’s not expected to get go direct until the 28th, and he’s giving us the energy to think things through, making sure we are not rushing into things that will not serve us and helping us move through healing. This is not victim-type energy, it is about realizing your role in relationships and how you express yourself in them, getting your needs met and not having just a good time for now. No, we are looking into our futures and we want solidarity as well as honoring our individualization.
Blessed Full Moon,
