A powerful energy began to intensely affect us all on on December 17. We have all felt it in the last week. A change is coming…
We had a shakeup on December 10 with a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius that heralded a message to women about their relationships with others, especially women. The message was that change was coming. Now at this New Moon time, it has arrived.
Winter Solstice, Saturnalia, or the longest night of the year was December 22, 2011 at 12:30am EST (6:30am CEST Copenhagen/Brussels). The coming of the light is now inevitable and the shorter night and longer days are upon us.
Next, on, December 24 at 1:07pm EST (7:07pm CEST Copenhagen/Brussels) we have a New Moon in Capricorn. This eclipse brings with it some powerfully strong energy that will light up our lives with positive energy — very markedly so in the next 3 months through the end of March 2012. This eclipse has several astronomical and astrological aspects accompanying it.
One aspect is that Jupiter, the planet of abundance and expansion is trine the Sun in Capricorn and Pluto in Capricorn. A trine aspect is always positive and imbues strenght, power and energy to a planet. In your chart it will give you extra benefit where 0-5 degrees Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are located. Those houses will be lit up by this eclipse and empowered. Pluto is a planet of transformation, power and renewal. This means you can accomplish the life goals set forth by you in the areas governed by Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn in your natal chart. makes a positive flow of energy to the sun in Capricorn and to Pluto, the planet of power and transformation.
If, for example, the New Moon at 2 Capricorn falls in the end of your 5th house and by trine in your 10th house (Taurus), and 2nd cusped (Virgo) by Sagittarius, you can expect to see more activity, abundance, expansion, positive change, new beginnings and growth, gain, and renewed power and strength in
- (10th house) career, fame, reputation, balance between work and home/family
- (2nd house) earned income, material possessions, credit and other other unearned income matters
- (5th house) children- conceiving and relationship with, creativity and talents, fortune/luck,
Lending assistance to this mix is the planet of Neptune (spirituality, intuition and compassion) which is transiting the end of the constellation of Aquarius. Neptune is sextile this eclipse and New Moon and sextiles are also positive aspects in astrology. Neptune in Aquarius is also trine Saturn in Libra, giving support to the formation of partnerships or partnerships already formed, specifically engagements and marriages (Libra) Saturn demands responsibility of us. It would not be surprising to see/hear of many marriage proposals between December 24- March 24. This trine empowers us to stabilize our lives and manifest our dreams.
The only “challenging” news in all this is empowering and stabilizing Pluto in Capricorn’s challenging square to rebellious and aggressive Uranus in Aries. This aspect will manifest globally as more chaos, violence and demands for change. Sometimes stagnant ingrained behaviors or traditions must be challenged, uprooted and transformed through change that cna fell shocking. Of course, you may personally experience this, acting an agent of change yourself or being on the receiving end of a shocking and clear request for a change in long-standing behavior of yours that has been perceived or experienced as controlling and repressive. Uranus in Aries is showing us that such behavior will no longer be tolerated. Just as we are seeing in Egypt and other places worldwide, there is now no turning back to the old regime/old behaviors. Out with the old, in with the new, and just in time for New Year’s Day.
So, look for new beginnings where 2 Capricorn, the New Moon, is in your natal chart. Use December 24 and the three (3) days following it to launch deep and lasting change in your life. Set new and abundant goals, especially in regards to business and financial opportunities and change how you relate to women if you have been challenged on your behavior and change has been demanded. It is time for you to take it seriously. Set a new goal of creating better relationships with women and in your partnerships in general. The universe will honor your goals in these areas.
