In Astrology, the sign of Capricorn is said to be a feminine sign, and both the sign and it’s ruler are represented by the sea-goat which is a creature of impossibility with the front half of a goat and the tail of a fish. Over millennia of Patriarchal rule and conditioning the planet and sign has lost it’s yin qualities with the sea-goat becoming a goat alone much of the time and Saturn and Capricorn being said to represent the Father amongst other things. Saturn and Capricorn have been spoken of in Astrology as harsh, cold and unloving and this article challenges that as being a reflection of the patriarchy itself.
Have you found your role in the Chaos of our times? Into which realm would you throw the apple of discord to start a significant ripple of change!
…On 4 April 2011, and February 4th 2012, the planet Neptune began its journey through Pisces, another symbolic key enhancing the shift in human consciousness slowly unfolding on our planet. Neptune has strong associations with the sign Pisces: both water energy, both belonging to a realm of the mysterious, the inspired and the imagined. Both have no boundaries, they build no barriers, and can be escapist and mystical in attitude
With Regulus now in Tropical Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus in the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.
Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and Virgo an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The shift from one to the other brings with it a new focus, a new energy.
Ketu (the transiting lunar south node) entered Capricorn in November 2018. It met Pluto late December 2018 and will join Saturn early March 2019. This leads to a Ketu, Pluto, and Saturn conjunction, active from March to September 2019. This particular astrological event may bring tangible consequences.
Inseparable from philosophy and the meaning of life, astrology illustrates how our lives and destinies–terms that refer both to usage and destination–tend toward a finality, or self-realization unconnected to wealth, power, or fame
Saturn represents the view from the graveyard, and when Saturn, Mars and Pluto meet in Capricorn in 2020, it is time to ‘bring up the bodies’. We find ourselves in a time of disclosure and revelation, take a deep breath, the good news is, this is when collective awareness can begin to transform itself into consciousness.
As Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8th for the first time since 2007, the global scene has rarely been in such a state of ‘high tension’. So it is with great interest I consider the implications of the year ahead into 2019, as Jupiter’s ‘job’ is to expand and enlarge the theme of the sign he triggers, and Sagittarius is all about the nature of TRUTH & BELIEFS.
The idea of astrological ages is based on the phenomena known as the precession of the equinoxes, whereby due to the earth’s wobble as it spins on its axis, the vernal point moves slowly backward through the zodiac constellations at a rate of one degree every seventy two years, spending approximately 2,160 years in each zodiac sign and completing a whole cycle in 25,772 years. Many Western astrologers believe that we have reached an important juncture and are about to enter a new age, the Aquarian Age, however this idea is hotly contested1. When does the vernal point actually enter the stars of Aquarius? While theories abound as to when this will happen, no-one has come up with a definitive date
Libra Ingress- Equinox 2018
Pluto and its Nodes, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these from other planets, correlate to the root structure within any birth chart. From that root, all else – the South/North Nodes of the Moon, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these points – are ‘birthed’ from that root. It’s like a tree that has branches where the root produces the trunk of the tree, and the trunk then produces branches with leaves. This core root and its branches within the birth chart is treated EQUALLY for it is the very structure of the chart itself
