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.

What is a lunar occultation? This phenomenon occurs when the Moon passes between the earth and a star or planet, temporarily obscuring it from our viewi. It’s an eclipse of sorts, and requires an exact alignment in several different celestial planes. Because they are unified on more than one plane of measurement, these occultations are more than a simple conjunction and deserve an elevated delineation. We interpret regular eclipses as endings and beginnings, seed times when circumstances and conditions are ripe for change and development.
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
The next 584 day, 19 mth, 1.6 year synodic* cycle, Venus’ next round of the Sun, begins as the current one ends with the interior retrograde conjunction at 3°06’ Scorpio on 26th October UTC. It then peaks midpoint in its cycle at 21° Leo on Aug 14th, 2019 at the direct exterior conjunction, before Venus swings back down to earth for the next end and begining at 14° Gemini on June 4th, 2020 for the next retrograde interior conjunction. .

…for first time in 84 years!
Time for a New Earth
When this revolutionary change agent comes calling to each sign every seven years we experience an upgrade in the affairs of the sign, in this case Taurus, with far reaching implications. His rulership over science and technology, plus human rights movements assures us of radical departures from existing conditions across the board.
As he is the key player in our unfolding revolution, his entrance into Taurus for the first time since 1934 in his 84 year cycle is hugely significant. Our Sky God is about to come down to earth to revolutionize our ecological systems with a wave of amazing inventions and groups of people who will clean up our world over the next 7 years. He’s also about to freshen up, to put it mildly, existing financial values and systems.
The wheel has turned and it’s calling us to `come home.’ As of November 15th, the lunar nodes shifted in the Cancer-Capricorn polarity, and remain there until June 4th 2020. Collectively and individually the nodal shift whispers; Where is home? Where do you belong? And how may I sooth my insecurities, release my fears and quell my loneliness? The lunar nodes form the backbone of evolutionary astrology; rich in symbolism pertaining to destiny and karma.
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.
King of the oceans, the Roman Neptune (Greek Poseidon) rules primarily the seas and all other waterways, earthquakes, and horses.
Water shape shifts; it flows; such fluidity helps us all adjust, fill, buoy or, more negatively, drown. Ergo, Neptune’s not exactly a black and white kinda energy…
Often, water correlates to mood, intuition, sensitivity, and empathy. Represented by the ebb and flow of the ocean’s waves as the tide rises and recedes, Neptune’s indicative of a collectively eternal situation that calls for a certain amount of surrender in order to go with the natural flow…
