Aspects of Note This Week
All times listed are Pacific Standard Time. For Greenwich Mean Time, add 8 hours. 
MON: Venus conjunct Neptune
TUE: Mars square Neptune, Venus semisquare Uranus
THU: Ceres enters Aquarius
FRI: Moon square Pluto 3:11 a.m., Moon square Saturn 6:24 a.m.
SAT: Venus sextile Pluto

SUN: Mercury semisquare Jupiter

 

ALTHOUGH the exact Saturn-Pluto alignment is now behind us, we are well aware that “objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.” The two planets are still in very close proximity to each other, separated by less than two degrees. This means we continue to feel their combined influence. They will be our travel companions for many months to come.
.

After an event such as the Saturn-Pluto alignment occurs, astrologers start to pay attention to those times when other, faster-moving planets either interact with one of the two planets, or transit (cross) the degree where they aligned. These transits are called “triggers,” because they can reactivate the primary themes of the original event.
.
THE MAIN TRIGGERS in 2020 to the Saturn-Pluto energies are Jupiter’s three alignments with Pluto, and its one alignment with Saturn late in the year. (Teaser: I’ll be talking in depth about the Jupiter-Pluto alignments in Thursday’s webinar!) Those events are a few months away, however. Meanwhile, we will be watching times when the Moon and other planets activate Saturn and Pluto.
.
This week, the Moon steps into that role. Luna is square Pluto at 3:11 a.m. PST and square Saturn at 6:24 a.m. PST on Friday. This is a relatively “minor trigger” because Luna moves so quickly. We can expect to feel any effects for just a few hours on either side of the exact aspects.
.
But, given that the Moon will be in Aries, we’ll need to watch emotional volatility around those times. Angers and fears could be easily  evoked. For those of us on Pacific Time, it could just be one of those “bad mood mornings,” but others will be dealing with it more directly during waking hours. Remember to breathe and ground, especially before taking any action.
.
OTHERWISE, the planets are relatively calm as we turn the calendar page from January to February, especially as compared to the high number of major astrological events in recent weeks.
.
We ease into the new week with an alignment between Venus and Neptune in Pisces on Monday. This is a lovely, compassionate influence, also romantic and imaginative. While keeping in mind that we may be more idealistic than realistic, this is an opportunity to lead with our hearts instead of our minds.
.
Neptune is again in the driver’s seat on Tuesday, when it forms a square aspect to Mars in Sagittarius. We’re still being guided to take the higher road, but now there’s an inner conflict involved: should we “turn the other cheek” or fight for our beliefs? Remember that Neptune can cause a lack of clarity or confusion when it forms a hard aspect, so be cautious about taking concrete action. It may be best to press the “pause” button and re-engage later in the week, when the Neptunian fog has dissipated.
.
THE SLOW EXODUS of planets leaving Capricorn continues this week, with dwarf planet Ceres entering Aquarius on Thursday. As you may recall, Ceres was part of the conglomerate that met for the Saturn-Pluto alignment. As Earth Mother goddess, Ceres brought issues related to the environment and agriculture to the meeting, dramatically revealing the ways in which climate change is affecting weather patterns and the ecology of our planet.
.
As Ceres traverses Aquarius from now through the third week in April, we are supported in thinking in new ways about environmental problems. And, since Ceres is involved in the care and feeding of people and animals, individuals with creative solutions may apply them specifically to ways in which we might feed all who live on the Earth, so that none need go hungry. Ceres will go retrograde later in the year, and will briefly revisit Aquarius from the last week of September through the first week of November.
.

AND NOW, for one last time, here’s the webinar announcement:

After the Tornado
Airing Live and Recorded for Replay
Thursday, January 30, 2020
4 pm PST | 5 pm MST | 6 pm CST | 7 pm EST | 12 midnight GMT

.
AS THE FIRST SCENES
of “The Wizard of Oz” unfold, a tornado upends Dorothy’s world. It is the beginning of her hero’s journey, through which she eventually discovers how strong she truly is. Along the way, she encounters like-minded souls and gains a new sense of connection and community.

.
We’ve been talking for months about the astrological tornado of January 2020. During a single week, from January 8 to 15, an amazing number of significant planetary events occurred, clustered around a powerful Lunar Eclipse and the alignment between Saturn and Pluto.
.

IN THIS 90-MINUTE WEBINAR, I will first talk about how our experiences in January relate to these astrological events. This review is important to undertake, because our path through the rest of 2020 directly relates to what occurs in January.

From there, we’ll “ease on down the road” and explore in more depth the primary opportunities and obstacles we’ll encounter in the first half of 2020. Highlights include:
.
.

  • Jupiter’s alignments with Pluto, when spin-off tornados may occur, but we also have the opportunity for deep systemic change
  • Saturn’s entry into Aquarius and return to Capricorn, demanding progress and requiring completion of the old
  • The shift of the nodal axis into Gemini/Sagittarius, adding another level of karmic completion and evolutionary growth into the dynamic
  • The alignments of Pallas Athena with Jupiter and Pluto, inspiring new solutions and the empowerment of the feminine
    .
    .

Before the class airs, you’ll receive calendars of January through June, which you can use for note-taking. During the last half of class, we’ll move week-by-week through each monthly calendar, noting when there are important events. As always, I will do my best to “bring the stars down to Earth,” explaining in practical terms what the planets are doing, how they may affect us, and how we can best navigate these times by focusing on higher purposes and our own capacity for spiritual maturity.
.

I hope you can join us! If you can’t attend live, the class is recorded for replay at your convenience. All registrants receive an email with a link to the replay, audio replay, and PDF slideshow.
.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: If your solar return is in the first half of the coming week, you are completing a year-long phase in which you have been reinventing yourself, perhaps as the result of major changes in some area of your life. If your solar return falls in the last half of this week, you are in the beginning stages of this same process. Restlessness is to be expected, and respected, for it is showing you where you may be living according to “shoulds” instead of following your authentic path. Others may see you as being especially selfish this year, for your focus is very personal as you explore the truth of your being. Events in 2020 are connected in some way to your experiences in 1998, when Uranus was conjunct your Sun and you went through a major individuation process. (Solar Return Sun square Uranus, square Vesta)

In Gratitude and Light,

Your weekly guide to planetary influences

January 13 to 19, 2020

Aspects of Note This Week

All times listed are Pacific Standard Time. For Greenwich Mean Time, add 8 hours. 
MON: Saturn conjunct Ceres, Sun conjunct Pluto, Sun conjunct Saturn, Sun conjunct Ceres, Venus enters Pisces, Sun square Eris,
Ceres square Eris
TUE: Mars semisquare Pluto
WED: Mars semisquare Saturn, Venus sextile Uranus
THU: Saturn square Eris, Mercury enters Aquarius

Mercury sextile Chiron
SAT: Mercury square Uranus

 

THE ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER continues to be incredibly stormy. Over the course of today and tomorrow, January 12 and 13, we are experiencing the exact alignments between Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, the Sun, and Ceres. We may be clearly aware of the effects of this planetary tornado in our personal lives, or we may be feeling the tension more empathically, through our heart connections with significant others, or simply because we’re all linked through mass consciousness.

At times of overwhelm, our choices of what is important often become clearer. And those who are facing the challenge of a literal storm in their environment right now – whether floods, fires, or earthquakes – may be needing to quickly make decisions about what they want to pack and what can be left behind.

For those of us who are not in such critical times on the physical level, we are likewise being compelled to consider what is most important, and what can be discarded. It may be an attitude, a fear, or a way of reacting that we sense is no longer needed, that is actually causing more harm than good in our lives.

 

I MENTIONED last week that we are in historical times. Saturn and Pluto represent the principles of authority and power, respectively. When the two planets align at the same degree of the zodiac, every 35 years or so, we often see tensions rise between nations, or between peoples and their governments. We also see similar developments at other pivotal times in the Saturn-Pluto cycle, when the planets are in hard aspect with each other.

To follow the historical thread, personally and collectively, here are the significant dates within the Saturn-Pluto cycle that ends today: November-December 1982 (conjunction); March 1993-January 1994 (waxing square); August 2001-May 2002 (opposition); and November 2009-August 2010 (waning square).

 

ALTHOUGH we can point to significant global events that occurred around those dates,  they were also times of personal shifts for most of us. Saturn and Pluto bring about circumstances – large or small – that can feel overwhelming or fearsome, primarily because they are outside our control. These situations may come through a decision we make, such as moving to a new location or starting or ending a relationship, or they may develop without our conscious choosing.

One of the higher purposes, now and each time that Saturn and Pluto interact, is to help us find a new level of inner empowerment and authority, one that is not defined by outer circumstances or even our own habitual reactions. It can be hard not to crumble when life appears to be falling apart – and, sometimes, the emotional or physical collapse can be an essential step in the process. But, ultimately, we survive – and we can even thrive, if we allow ourselves to take that next step in personal empowerment and internal authority.
 
 

IN SPITE of circumstances that may seem outside our control during this Saturn-Pluto alignment, we always have a choice of where to put our attention. We can dwell on that which raises fear in us, or we can dwell on that which increases our capacity to love. An open heart is where true empowerment and inner authority are found.

Ceres and Charilko can help us with that goal. These two planetary objects are also aligned with the group of planets in Capricorn right now. Their energies are intricately involved in what we are experiencing – it’s just that it takes some effort on our part to hear their quieter voices, which are too easily drowned out by the loud clangor of Saturn and Pluto.

The dwarf planet Ceres represents our capacity to nurture, both ourselves and others. As Earth Mother goddess, Ceres cares deeply for the Earth, for children, for nature, and for animals. It is during times of environmental crisis that Ceres’ voice is the loudest. As she aligns with Saturn and Pluto in responsible Capricorn, she calls us to reprioritize our values, to put the security and survival of our planet and its inhabitants at the top of our agenda.

CHARILKO is also empowered now, being just two degrees away from Saturn and Pluto. Named for the wife of Chiron, this centaur* is seen as a supportive midwife for our process of healing. In her research, astrologer Melanie Reinhart has found that Charilko has “a gift for creating or holding sacred space, the ability to witness and facilitate transition, the silent power of receptivity, and the strength of Being.”

With the strength of Saturn and Pluto to support her, Charilko offers us greater access to these qualities than we might have had before. Through this alignment, we can more consciously hold the sacred space for a new world to emerge from this time of transition. But first, we must become the midwife who is not overwhelmed by the process of birth, but has taken on the task of facilitating it. As we come to center, soften the fear response, and open our hearts, we gain clarity not only about what we most value, but also about the kind of energy we want to contribute to the planet and all life at this critical juncture.

 

MERCURY, the Messenger Planet, is also part of the planetary lineup in Capricorn. This means that communications are a strong theme now. Words carry extra power, so be especially mindful of your intentions, as well as how your spoken and written words might be interpreted. Our motivations must be very clean, because we’ll quickly see the results of any missteps.

We might think of this as being similar to a Mercury retrograde phase, when caution is advised in all matters that involve the sharing of information or ideas, especially if our words could be construed as being judgmental (Saturn) or manipulative (Pluto).

 

CONFRONTATIONS are possible this week, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday, when Mars is in hard aspect to Pluto and Saturn. The exact square between Saturn and disgruntled Eris occurs on Thursday, another indicator that tensions could increase midweek.

However, we can also feel some movement out of places where we’ve been stuck, thanks to Mercury’s shift into Aquarius, also on Thursday. In the positive, Mercury in Aquarius can help us think outside the box, and assists us in conceiving progressive ideas and solutions. But, we can also be a little more scattered mentally, or impatient when things aren’t improving fast enough. That tendency is increased on Saturday, when Mercury is in hard aspect to Uranus. Next weekend could be a great time for brainstorming; we just are advised to wait to implement any plans until we also check out their practicality.

 

 

AND REMEMBER, throughout this week and for the rest of January at least, how important self-care is now. Whether we’re aware of it consciously or it is beyond our level of awareness, we are each navigating some truly profound energy shifts.

Please take the time to rest, to nurture yourself, and be likewise kind to others. Know that as much stress as you are feeling, others are feeling it, too. Be gentle, and allow your heart to guide your words and your actions. What “needs” to be said or done immediately may not look as crucial after we’ve slept on it – and, by the next day, when emotions are calmer, we may find it easier to hear the soothing voices of Ceres and Charilko whispering in our ear.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Since early October, you have been working with some profound planetary energies. You may be feeling especially passionate about a new course of action, but also somewhat cautious. If you were on the planet in 1980-82, you no doubt experienced a major shift in your life during those years; you can consider 2020 to represent your next step in personal empowerment. You are being asked to consider how you want to claim your passion or your mission, whether it be through a career move or a shift in your personal life. Throughout the coming year, you will have a stronger sense of what will work and what no longer works. This greater objectivity will inform your choices going forward. (Solar Return Sun conjunct Mercury, conjunct Ceres, conjunct Saturn, conjunct Pluto)

In Gratitude and Light,

Aspects of Note This Week
All times listed are Pacific Standard Time. For Greenwich Mean Time, add 8 hours. 
MON: Mercury enters Sagittarius
TUE: Mercury trine Chiron, Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus
WED: Venus conjunct Saturn, Mercury quincunx Uranus, Full Moon 9:12 p.m. PST, Mercury semisquare Saturn
THU: Chiron stations direct
FRI: Venus conjunct Pluto, Mercury semisquare Pluto, Mars sesquiquadrate Chiron
SAT: Venus square Eris
SUN: Jupiter trine Uranus, Mercury semisquare Venus

WHEN CHARLES DICKENS penned A Tale of Two Cities in 1859, he began his novel with these now-famous lines: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times …” This text has been quoted endless times over the decades, especially when manifestations on the physical plane have seemed especially polarizing.

 

With the upcoming Saturn-Pluto alignment gaining strength with each passing day, we feel the truth of Dickens’ words quite poignantly now—in particular, the closing lines of that first sentence of the novel: “… it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity.”

MOST OF US have felt those extremes very deeply in 2019. We’ve experienced the highs and lows, the optimism and the pessimism, the faith and the despair. One day (or even one moment), we may have the sense that All Is Well, while the next minute we may swing to the opposite end of the spectrum, fearing that nothing is ever going to be OK.

This week, planetary interactions focus our attention once again on the contrasts of the physical plane. While we may not be able to completely ignore the sharp spines of the cactus, we can choose whether to dwell on the potential for injury or to focus on the incredibly beautiful flowers that can unexpectedly bloom.

THE PLANET MERCURY, representing our logical, thinking minds, leaves truth-seeking Scorpio and enters idealistic Sagittarius on Monday. Other influences aside, this sign change indicates a shift on the mental plane that encourages more optimistic thinking. Plus, a Mercury-Chiron trine early on Tuesday reinforces the positive natures of both planets, helping us have the confidence and courage to express our beliefs.

But, if we’re not careful, some of that self-assuredness can veer off into self-centeredness with a hard Sun-Uranus aspect also in effect on Tuesday. We have a similar influence on Wednesday, when a hard Mercury-Uranus aspect fuels our impatience with anyone who has a different opinion about how to effect necessary changes.

VENUS is strongly aspected this week; now in Capricorn, the goddess of Love aligns with karmic Saturn on Wednesday, conjoins powerful Pluto on Friday, and is square disgruntled Eris on Saturday.

Relationships, values, and financial situations are undergoing deep shifts with these aspects. Saturn helps us make decisions and commitments in these areas midweek, while Pluto empowers us to make changes or to deepen our connections by week’s end. The fly in the ointment is the Eris aspect on the weekend itself, when we can tend to overreact to perceived slights or threats.

In essence, Venus is activating the influence of the Saturn-Pluto alignment and bringing its effects into our relational and financial worlds. Any issues that arise are part and parcel of the bigger package that we fully unwrap in January.

A FULL MOON perfects midweek, occurring at 9:12 p.m. PST on Wednesday (5:12 a.m. GMT on Thursday). The lunation occurs when the Moon is at 19°51′ Gemini, and the Sun is at the same degree of Sagittarius.

A part of the importance of this Full Moon is that it precedes the solar eclipse that occurs on December 25/26. This means there is an even stronger emphasis on the usual advice to do a cleansing/release process during the last half of the lunar cycle. Over the next two weeks, we will want to focus on literally and figuratively clearing our closets of debris.

NEPTUNE is square the Sun and the Moon at the time of the Full Moon, forming a configuration called a mutable t-square in the lunation chart. A t-square indicates tension that is looking for release, and the planet at the apex (Neptune) is especially significant.

Neptune’s involvement gives a mystical/spiritual/creative overlay to the Full Moon. We can gain much by accessing deeper levels of compassion and understanding at this time, while letting go of blame and victimization. Under this t-square influence, we may have to deal with disillusionment when something does not live up to our ideal; and yet, as we rise above our expectations, we learn a new level of surrender to a higher agenda, letting go of limiting beliefs and mindsets.

There is also a strong healing element to this Full Moon: Mercury, ruler of Gemini and thus an important player in the lunation, is still in helpful trine aspect to Chiron—and with Chiron stationing direct on Thursday, the Wounded Healer is especially strong right now. This aspect helps us to trust more fully the intuitive insights that come from within, and to tap into our higher guidance more confidently.
THE MOST EXCITING astrological event this week is the Jupiter-Uranus trine that perfects on Sunday, December 15. Since these are two slower-moving planets, we will feel the effects throughout this week and next.

Any time we get Jupiter and Uranus working in harmony together, there are opportunities for positive changes that alter the landscape of our lives. This is especially true with both planets currently in earth signs, which are focused on manifestations on the physical plane.

JUPITER is the planet of Expansion and Meaning, while Uranus is the planet of Higher Consciousness and As-Yet-Unknown Realities. The greater potentials of their interaction include greater spiritual understanding, opening to new dimensions, going on exciting adventures in consciousness, and having the faith to make major life changes. Intuitive knowing is enhanced, and it may be hard to stay focused on the mundane.

To receive greatest benefit of this Jupiter-Uranus trine, we will want to keep our feet on the ground, even while our consciousness may be traveling to distant realms. Insights, when received, are meant to be utilized in our physical reality—otherwise, like dreams, they can quickly fade into oblivion, only leaving a soft imprint on our memories.
IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: This year, you tap into your inner wisdom in new ways. Insights come unexpectedly, leading you on new adventures that you may not have conceived of a few months ago. You may not always have great clarity, as certain ways in which you have perceived yourself and your reality are dissolving. If you feel untethered, remember to have faith, and know that your lessons are very Neptunian now. Throughout the coming year, your challenges are to develop greater trust, to live intuitively instead of from old beliefs about reality, and to surrender to the callings of your Soul. (Solar Return Sun conjunct Pallas Athene, square Neptune)

In Gratitude and Light,

Pam

NorthPoint Astrology Journal

by Pam Younghans

 

Aspects of Note This Week
All times listed are Pacific Standard Time. For Greenwich Mean Time, add 8 hours. 
MON: Venus quincunx Uranus
TUE: Mars square Pluto
WED: Venus semisquare Pluto
THU: Venus semisquare Mars
FRI: Sun sextile Saturn, Sun trine Neptune, Saturn sextile Neptune
SAT: Mars opposite Eris, Mercury sextile Pluto

SUN: Venus trine Chiron

.
.
.

OUR PERSPECTIVE is changing, moment by moment, experience to experience, as if we are observing life through a kaleidoscope. Last Sunday’s New Moon in Scorpio, which opposed Uranus, set new energies into motion. Unexpected changes have altered how we view certain aspects of reality, and required us to be flexible and adaptable.
 .
.

As a result, we may be feeling somewhat fragmented, not quite sure where to land emotionally. At times we might feel at peace and in tune with the cosmos, while in the next minute we could find ourselves reacting viscerally to some situation in our lives. This uncertain footing, while disconcerting, is providing an opening for us to think in new ways, and to release old emotional patterns that have been limiting our growth in consciousness.

.
.

WHILE SOME TURBULENCE continues into the new week, we also have the opportunity to solidify our spiritual perspective. This will enable us to embrace even upsets with greater equanimity.
 .
.
Astrologically, the turbulence comes in the form of a Mars-Pluto square (Tuesday) and a Mars-Eris opposition (Saturday). As the god of war, Mars is of course volatile—and hard aspects to power-hungry Pluto and disgruntled Eris only add to the antagonism.
 .
.
The arenas in which this discordant energy plays out should not be surprising, since we’ve already been working with this tension for a while. But, with assertive Mars acting as the catalyst, there are likely to be flare-ups wherever people are already at odds with one another.
 .
.
And, this is another week to closely watch both global and personal events, as they will be indicators of what issues will be highlighted at the time of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January 2020. 
.
.
.

ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, we’ll want to be cautious about taking actions that may be driven by old patterns of fear and control. Those habitual patterns might manifest as overt power struggles, or in passive-aggressive manipulations, or even as co-dependent tendencies, given that Mars is currently in Libra.
 .
.
We’ll know when we’re being drawn into those old behaviors, by how we feel inside. Karmic patterns, especially, seem to express through strong “have to” feelings: We “have to” say what we think, take a certain action, settle the score, or even resolve an issue so that we no longer have to feel certain emotions. There’s a sense of urgency, sometimes almost panic.
 .
.
At such times, it is valuable to remember that our higher self rarely speaks to us in urgent tones, except perhaps in a moment of crisis, to save us from an accident. But the voice of our Divine Self is powerfully calming, and brings a sense of peace to our hearts when we listen. We will all benefit from drawing our attention into that space of inner peace before taking action this week.
.
.
.

RELATIONSHIPS AND ALLIANCES are under pressure during the first half of the week, as Venus forms hard aspects with Uranus (Monday), Pluto (Wednesday), and Mars (Thursday). Since Venus is also ruler of values and finances, these are additional areas where there may be disruption.
 .
.
The Venus-Uranus quincunx that begins the week indicates dissatisfaction with how things are unfolding, and yet confusion about how best to resolve the problem. Uranus may cause short-term separations or estrangement, which are difficult for Venus to accept.
 .
.
.

VENUS is then semisquare both Pluto and Mars midweek, when the goddess of love is at the midpoint between those two planets. A midpoint is a sensitive degree, exactly midway between two planets, that carries the combined energy of both planets.
 .
.
Astrologer John Sandbach writes that when the Mars-Pluto midpoint is activated by another planet, there is “an intensification of one’s actions so that one may perceive both their constructive and destructive aspects.”
 .
.
He further explains that when Venus is at the Mars-Pluto midpoint, “Love is expressed with an extreme of assertiveness and excitement. The loved one may try to dominate you, or you may try to dominate the loved one. Power struggles in love.”
 .
.
It is reassuring that next Sunday, Venus is in a harmonious trine aspect with Chiron, the Wounded Healer. This provides an opportunity for us to rebuild bridges that may have been weakened earlier in the week, as we invoke the qualities of acceptance, compassion, and understanding of ongoing differences.
.
.
.

FRIDAY’S ASPECTS are notable for their positive and encouraging effects. Most important is the Saturn-Neptune sextile, a longer-term aspect that represents our capacity to be both practical and idealistic. This aspect can also help us bring a vision into reality, as long as we are willing to put in the required effort. This is the third and final Saturn-Neptune sextile in 2019, with the first two perfecting on January 31 and June 18.
 .
.
The Sun is also in the mix on Friday, in harmonious aspect to both Saturn and Neptune. Literally and figuratively, the Sun pours light upon whatever it touches. As it sextiles Saturn and trines Neptune on Friday, the positive qualities of both planets are highlighted. This threesome will assist in our efforts to manifest our spiritual ideals in this physical reality, as we harness our imaginations, have faith in as-yet unseen outcomes, and apply the necessary focus and discipline as we pursue our goals. 
.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: More than ever, you are concerned with deeper truths this year. Communication is a specific focus, whether you are writing in your personal journal, scribing a book, giving speeches, or exploring new ideas—but with retrograde Mercury emphasized in your solar return chart, much of what you learn will be through introspection. By accessing the ideas that germinate within you, and by applying practical tools, you have the potential to bring a dream or ideal into concrete manifestation. (Solar Return Sun conjunct retrograde Mercury, sextile Saturn, trine Neptune, sextile Pluto)

Your weekly guide to planetary influences

July 15 to 21, 2019

by Pam Younghans

Aspects of Note This Week

 

All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. For Greenwich Mean Time, add 7 hours. 

 

TUE: Venus quincunx Jupiter, Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon 2:38 p.m. PDT, Sun square Eris, Venus opposite Saturn

WED: Venus conjunct North Node

THU: Mercury trine Ceres, Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter, Venus trine Neptune

FRI: Mercury enters Cancer

SUN: Venus opposite Pluto, Sun conjunct Mercury

 

ALTHOUGH OUR LUNAR ECLIPSE this week is “only” a partial eclipse, it is a potent one. At the time of the event, the Moon is close to two results-oriented planets, Saturn and Pluto. It is also tightly square Eris, the dwarf planet that is playing a major role in current events.

 

Whenever Saturn is activated in this way, we can expect a reality check, where we come face to face with the truth of a situation. When Pluto is energized, great power is unleashed, forcing change. And, when Eris adds its influence, we experience resistance and perhaps anger.

 

In many respects, this Lunar Eclipse is the younger sister of the Lunar Eclipse set for January 2020. At that time, the Sun will align with not only Saturn and Pluto, but also Mercury and Ceresand all of these planets will be square Eris. Because of this link between the two eclipses, we must observe current events within a larger context; they are part of a process that will continue to unfold over the next six months, which will either culminate or reach a crisis point in early 2020.

 

IF YOU’VE ATTENDED one of my webinars this year, you know that I’m viewing 2019 and 2020 as a two-year process. That is based in part on the high-pressure Saturn-Pluto alignment, which was very strong in April, is being triggered by this week’s eclipse, will build in effect again starting in October, and then peak in January 2020. From there, we have other significant and related alignments that carry us through the end of 2020.

 

It can be helpful to know that we’re in the midst of a longer-term evolutionary phase, that what we’re experiencing now is not the end of the story. At Matt Kahn’s most recent talk in Seattle, he spoke of ascension, and explained that it’s really a process of “transmutation, brought about by heat and pressure.” Hearing those words, I immediately thought of Pluto (heat) and Saturn (pressure). Certainly, we are under a lot of pressure right now, and feeling the heat. It makes sense that the planets would be closely involved in the major shift we sense is occurring on our planet.

 

THIS WEEK’S ECLIPSE perfects at 2:38 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, July 16 (9:38 p.m. GMT). It occurs when the Moon is at 24°04′ Capricorn, and the Sun is at the same degree of Cancer. Contained in the eclipse chart is a tight opposition between Venus and Saturn, a close alignment between Venus and the North Node, and a wider opposition between Venus and Pluto.

Any time we see Venus mentioned astrologically, we can expect to see effects in one or more of the areas that Venus “rules”: our values, our relationships, and our finances. In essence, Venus represents all those things we open our human hearts to, that we may even say we lovewhether it’s another person or our favorite pair of shoes.

 

TAKING THESE ASPECTS one at a time, a Venus-Saturn opposition indicates a reality check in these Venus-ruled areas of life. We are able to be a bit more detached than usual. This neutralitywhich may look like aloofness to othersallows us to see the truth of a relationship, or realize we’ve overspent and need to be more cautious, or perhaps we admit that it’s time to give away a certain pair of shoes because we haven’t worn them in years, even if they still have sentimental value.

 

In comparison, the Venus-Pluto opposition is far from objective. It awakens passions and reveals deeper needs, emotions, and attachments. We tend to react viscerally, instinctively, to issues that arise. Power struggles, jealousies, and secrets may surface. Some may try to manipulate situations in their efforts to maintain control.

 

THE ALIGNMENT between Venus and the North Node in Cancer gives us strong clues as to how to manage this complex combination of influences. The North Node shows the path of humanity’s highest evolution, and the qualities we are being asked to develop.

 

Cancer is the sign of the Empath, the Nurturer, the Sensitive. And yet, Cancer the Crab needs its shellrepresenting strong boundariesin order to survive in the world. The North Node in Cancer tells us that humanity’s growth depends on our ability to be more openhearted, more emotionally generous, more trusting in the guidance of our intuitive knowing. But, at the same time, we must also know our boundaries and our internal strength, so that we don’t dissolve into a helpless and hopeless emotional heap when viewing the problems in the world.

 

The world needs our hearts, but it also needs our strength–and our light.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: This year is a time of powerful transition in your life. You are tapping into your deeper motivations, and learning to speak and live your truth even more fully. You are releasing old elements of the past, as well as old emotional patterns. This purging process will free you to find a new sense of personal purpose in your life. You may feel exceptionally vulnerable as you go through these changes; this teaches you the importance of self-care, and that you must allow others to support you. (Solar Return Sun conjunct Mercury, conjunct Venus, opposite Saturn, opposite Pluto, trine Neptune)

 

In Gratitude and Light,
