This week’s astrology highlights the transitional period we find ourselves in and the bigger tectonic shifts occurring in our world which is reflected by the movement of the planets.
There are a lot of overlapping aspects some of which have to do with the past and some which are a preview of things to come in the near future.
On a mundane level, the Full Moon in Capricorn sheds light on the old systems and societal constructs which have been on their way out for quite some time and slowly being replaced by the promise of the 200 year Air period which is upon us.
It would be too simplistic to isolate this Full Moon in Capricorn as being only relevant for this week, when we are amidst such foundational changes on a collective level. Things may look the same but deep down you may feel yourself, your priorities, and the world around you changing in surprising ways.
Pluto, planet of underworld transformation, has been traveling in Capricorn since 2008 and is about to enter the Air sign of Aquarius in the Spring of 2023. Pluto in Capricorn has done a fine job of exposing corrupt structures, especially since it came into a conjunction with Saturn in January of 2020 which saw the culmination of power-grabbing corporations hijacking the collective into a forced big-pharma coup, while shepherding consciousness into a collective virtual hallucination in order to contain, monitor, and profit from the masses.
Being ruled by Saturn, Capricorn has a lot to do with reality and accountability. Things are the way they are because x,y,z whether you like it or not. You can get with the program or you can move deeper into the hallucination while being coddled by ‘’The Powers that be Inc.’’
Saturn is currently transiting in Aquarius which is paving the way for Pluto’s entry next year into the sign of the Water Bearer. We are getting a glimpse of what it means to be moving through a triplicity shift (Earth to Air period) interacting with artificial intelligence and absorbing information and knowledge at an increasingly rapid pace. Our lives are being augmented by the quick synapses of AI, while we are coming to grasp with the deeper implications of the planned obsolescence of consumer culture and the industrialization of our food and nature.
The Full Moon in Capricorn sheds light on these themes as we slowly extricate ourselves from the dreams of our predecessors which held the suburban-nuclear-family-two-car-driveway-retirement-fund fantasy as the peak of success.
Chiron in Aries is a big player in the current astrology and offers healing, especially where you may have felt castrated out of your will and personal autonomy. It is not so much about giving up or being a victim but more so about surrendering to the pain in order to understand where it is coming from. Take your deepest dissatisfactions, frustrations and lay them in front of you. What are they made of? What is it trying to show you? Where is your power resting? Is it in your hands? Who is doing the dreaming?
Venus in Gemini forms a trine with Saturn in Aquarius while also squaring Neptune in Pisces. We can grow and benefit from the connections we make in the virtual world but the virtual world can easily become more real than the real world. We are walking a fine line between thinking that we are in control versus being influenced by things that bypass our conscious awareness. Where we focus our attention has never been so convoluted. Our body cannot differentiate between the experiences of the virtual world versus the experiences of the real world. We are saying goodbye to a way of being while thinking ourselves into the multiplicity of this 200 year Air period with all that it entails. Can you keep up?
Uranus in Taurus is and will continue to be activated in the weeks to come urging us out of our familiar comfort zone, prompting us to push on the boundaries of what we think is possible. If you feel compelled to think outside of the box, you are on the right track! The power is in your hands or is it?
