Hi all….in case you are all wondering about this great big T-square in the sky.. here are the details . Full moon at 11.34am GMT (in Moon’s own sign of Cancer, with Sun in opposite sign..Capricorn). Add to this the planet Jupiter in Libra that is squaring The Sun and squaring The Moon.. (in fact the full moon occurs after the squares have culminated)..
Normally the day/ night before the full moon is quite intense and magical for many people.. a case of the personal `cauldron reaching boil’ ..energies rising to the surface.. culminating etc.. And as it’s actually an opposition (Sun opposing Moon *is* what produces the Full moon after all)…energies are pulling us in opposite directions.. (It’s why full moons are said to bring out the crazy side of things!)
Add to that the effect of the 2nd biggest stellar object of the Solar system – Jupiter – forming squares which create a lot of dynamic energies… (following oppositions, squares are the 2nd most stressful aspect any 2 planets can form!).. you can see why the last 24 hours and indeed the hours leading upto this T-square is being highly tense, dynamic, stressful and probably creative and productive too 🙂
By tomorrow evening (thursday evening) though the moon may seem bright and full in the sky, the `energies’ of this T-square will be slowly reducing..
Signs deeply affected:
Leo (ruled by Sun), Cancer (ruled by moon), Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter), Capricorn (Sun is here now), Cancer (double-whammy- moon is here now), Libra (Jupiter is here now).
Of course we are all affected.. because at least 2-3 parts of each of our natal chart will be influenced by these planetary aspects.
Here’s some good news for Sagittarians – a huge amount of hard work is coming!
Did I say it’s great news..? well it is.. where your nose gets put down to the grind stone.. and quite possibly you will wear your self out to the bones, get down to some serious learnings, declutter your life, tear down all the dressings off the pillars that hold your Sky high, and dig deep to repair and lay much stronger foundations for your future…. And when I say future, I mean between now and the next 29-30 years!
Yes, rather long term!! Saturn is the cosmic TaskMaster responsible for all this, and he (Father Time) is coming to your house as of 23rd December 2014 (in a few days!). You can do nothing to stop him. And he’s going to stay on for 3 years..and in that time, he’ll help you…then pull you back for months at a time to grind your nose to the hard earth.. show you things you missed, slap you hard on your wrist and may be your face too.. and then when you do things with respect and honour, pat you firmly on your back! This can not be avoided – as you (Sagittarian) have been standing on the old foundations you laid out between November 1985 to February 1988.
So if you want to have a clue about all this, think back to those years..(if you were actually born by then!). So you can see..that it’s time for some heavy duty decluttering..and renovations/ deepening of your life’s foundations.
Am writing this hurriedly, (having spent an hour or so working on the graphics carefully), while scratching my hair and facing my own challenges.. But with few days to go, I really thought I should warn you all.. (and then write more about this topic in the weeks, months…heck..years to come..
We’ve got 3 years of this to talk about!) It’s not just Sagittarians who will be affected by this. Let’s not forget…that Saturn rules Capricorn. So for Capricorns, this marks a new phase in your lives too.. (well, every 3 years is a major phase for you Caps!). But in many ways, for Capricorns – the Mountain Goats- the hard deep transformative time of the past 3+ years is going to change ..for the better..Why? Because from their point of view, Saturn moves from the deeply intensive, probing, shedding skin, transformative sign of Scorpio and into the jovial, expansive, spiritual, just, generous, impulsive, flirty sign of Sagittarius…and those are the energies that you well-deserving hard working Capricorns are going to gain for the next 4+ years!! 🙂
Here’s some key dates for all your long term diaries:
23rd Dec’ 2014 – Saturn enters Sagittarius
14 March 2015 – Saturn starts Retrograde (4’44” in Sagittarius)
Less than 3 days to go..for the culmination of an intense stressful aspect that has been influencing many of us for the past few weeks..! Yes, we have already been in the grips of this one.. !
Powerful yet small planet(oid) Pluto ..currently transiting the sign of Capricorn, is being opposed by usually jovial Jupiter which is retrograding in the water sign of Cancer! This aspect will reach its intense culmination on Friday 31st January 2014..around about 9.15am (gmt) in the morning.. So the night of 30th is probably the one that we all have to ensure the most!!
Oppositions are stressful.. where energies of the opposing planets clash..! It doesn’t matter which side you are on.. you are going to feel the opposition..from the other side.. !
The signs mostly affected will be Sagittarius & Scorpios.. and also Cancerians & Capricorns.
In this case, energies of Jupiter- expansions, wisdom, generosity, law, exploring distant horizons or cultures..are going to be challenged…as will that of Pluto – power, sexual urges, secret desires, compulsions, obsessions! This intense jarring will result in side effects such as over-indulgence, gambling, need for exercising power and manipulating others, sexual obsessions or perversions, experimenting with the occult, magic or spells..and so on!
Do not gamble with other people’s money.. Do guard against secrets spilling out.. and do not probe into others’ secrets…!
How to navigate this difficult time? Well, am sure you already have been.. as these frustrating energies have been building up..! Oppositions can only be resolved by compromises and perhaps even some sacrifices..! The saving grace can come from the beneficial qualities of the planets involved…such as farsight, wisdom, deeper understanding of human nature, and perhaps some travels..
Pluto symbolises transformation.. Jupiter symbolises higher learning.! Use those key qualities for resolutions.. Also utilise the energies of the signs..where the oppositions are taking place..
Compromise means not just giving up a little of your own needs, wants and demands, but also understanding..and even taking on the qualities and suggestions of the opposing forces! In other words, allow some of the opposing energies to permeate you…and become part of you.. !
Then, true transformation takes place!
There is one big good news.. On the same day, Venus ..which has been going retrograde, goes Direct! That’s going to be good…for all things ruled by Venus.. from romances, relationships, arts and finances..! 🙂
Don’t forget to follow my blog, to keep up with my astrology posts 🙂
We are mid-way through the 7-waves of the Pluto-square-Uranus aspect (2012 to 2015). The coming weeks will get intense, chaotic, full of shocks and few surprises.. accidents, wrangles, rebellions, and innovations.. The current aspect culminates on 2nd November.
Star signs to be severely affected will be Aquarians & Scorpios.. and as those planets are in certain signs, Aries & Capricorns will be equally affected. And of course the rest of the signs..to further degrees.. directly and indirectly as the rest field the fall-outs.. I am already seeing plenty of `evidence’ of these signs being affected.. just by keeping my eyes open.. ..
Saturn has been in the zodiac sign of Libra for over 2 and a half years (since 23rd July 2010). That to Librans would have been like driving a fast car that suddenly goes into a muddy path..! Car slows down or even stops.. or progress is very slow. Things will have started to get very difficult – personal problems, sudden responsibilities, clashing with figureheads and authority figures in life.. It started a 28 year cycle, of stock taking, slowing down and learning some hard lessons in life.
Well, in a few days time, on 5th October’12 (20:34 hrs gmt) Saturn leaves the air sign of Libra…and enters the next one…watery depths of Scorpio!
This is a great shift for Librans – and if hey have somehow understood and well-received their hard lessons, what awaits them as Saturn leaves their sign are well-earned rewards in Life..!!
On the flip side, for Scorpios, this begins a time when all that the Librans have gone through …is coming…for the next 2-3 years (till 18th September 2015..!!)
What does it mean for Capricorns?
One major facet of this is the sign actually ruled by Saturn itself..which is Capricorn! And for them, it’s like moving homes… as their ruling planet that has been living in the Libran-house, moves to Scorpio-territory. If Saturn is affecting the signs that its leaving and moving to,well, the hosting benefits of Libra will be now gone for Scorpios… Capricorn people will now start to gain the energies and benefits of the Scorpio.
They will start to gain insights and experiences about power and control (be affected by it, as well as getting skills in using it!) But the biggest process that awaits Capricorns is one of intensity, uncovering secrets, truths and personal transformation.. For capricorns, their old ways are about to die, and a phase of the Phoenix awaits.. and re-birth!
