Pluto in Capricorn Stations Retrograde

With Pluto in retrograde the next 5 months are an excellent time to excavate and review our relationship to the themes of power, control and transformation, especially as they relate to the areas of work, long term plans, structures, systems, government, discipline and criticism.

Aries New Moon: Trust Your Instincts

Tonight at 7:31 PM PST, we arrive at the Aries New Moon. Energetic and open Aries energy is the divine spark of creation; the life force that awakens the cherry blossoms bloom, the life force that inspires us to move, act and do. We arrive at the Aries New Moon ready for change, or at least ready to accept that change has come, even if we feel ill equipped to meet it.

Mars in Gemini: Decolonize

Today Mars enters the buzzing inquisitive sign of Gemini and will be here to stay until April 23rd. When the driven Warrior meets the playful Twins we are asked to get curious about the ways we move, act and do. The Twins know there is never one, or even two, right ways to do anything, but entire multitudes of possibility. Mars in Gemini lovingly reminds we must enjoy the process. The colonizing tactic of a joyless ambition creates nothing worth saving.

Saturn Square Uranus: A Collective Reading

Today marks the first of 3 squares Saturn in Aquarius will make with Uranus in Taurus, some of the most significant astrology of 2021. Saturn is the planet of structure, tradition, and responsibility. Uranus is the planet of chaos, the future and revolution. When the two square off tensions run high and power struggles abound.

New Moon in Aquarius

As we reach Aquarius season our days slowly but surely are getting longer, as winter’s darkness begins to break. The bulk of the dying season is behind us, and we are reminded of the sweet tastes of life. The waxing light touches our awareness, as it does the barren trees, illuminating both our internal and external landscapes. We can see further and with more clarity than we’ve been able to for some time, as we integrate the experiences and lessons of our time spent in hibernation.

Neptune in Capricorn: The Colonizer

For those of the Neptune in Capricorn generation, such as myself (current day 22-36/37 year olds), it is of the utmost importance to regularly and vigorously assess our dreams, cleansing our dreamscape of those that are not our own. As Neptune seeks to dissolve all that it touches, in Capricorn this translates as the dissolution of responsibility, boundaries, structures, systems (economics, law & order), borders and reality. What does the dissolution of reality, borders, systems and structures, with a total disregard of responsibility look like on the ground? Colonization.
