New Moon in Capricorn meets Pluto

This New Moon in sober Capricorn packs a real punch.

If you want to know what’s in the stars, just follow the news. Astrology is based on the hermetic principle of “as above, so below”.

The most striking aspect to this New Moon in Capricorn is its closely aligned with Pluto, God of the Underworld. This can be seen in the world as the impending impeachment of Donald Trump.

Last week on Wednesday January 6th Mercury joined Pluto and Mars was at the last degree of Aries, which is extremely volatile.

The Independent newspaper reports “The invasion of Capitol and Capitol Hill riots: Dramatic videos show Trump supporters storming the Capitol building. Videos posted to social media from reporters and lawmakers depicted a chaotic, terrifying scene of pro-Trump rioters breaking into the Capitol building.”

Pluto represents buried wealth and power. Donald Trump is now seeing the results of his inflammatory speeches and lies. He’s been banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, and his Trump enterprises are suffering.

In the news:- “US business leaders never took to Donald Trump and now the gloves are off.”

“New York mayor terminates city’s business ties with Donald Trump. All contracts with the Trump Organisation have been severed.”

Intensity with Mars squaring Saturn

The second major intense aspect at this New Moon is Mars in Taurus makes a challenging aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, as it then proceeds to move closer to Uranus. Mars is exactly conjunct Uranus on Inauguration Day, January 20th. Uranus is a planet connected to revolution; Mars is the God of War.

On a more personal level, Mars joining Uranus can be accident prone, or sudden flare ups with anger issues getting out of hand. Watch out for accidents as this energy is very ungrounding. It will start to ease by the New Moon in February. However by then we start the first of 3 squares of Saturn and Uranus, the theme of the year.

What’s the good news?

Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi

Venus in steady Capricorn represent the Elder Woman, the Sage. It makes a positive contact to Mars and Uranus.

I am following Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and an extraordinary leader, who at the age of 80 totally embodies this energy.

A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and, until the inauguration of Kamala Harris as Vice President, is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history. As House Speaker, Pelosi is second in the presidential line of succession, after the vice president.

She has the signature of a true leader with her Sun in Aries (exalted), Moon in Scorpio (politics) and Leo rising with Venus in Taurus (own sign). (Born 26th March 1940)

Pluto is good for Pruning

A New Moon is always a good time to start afresh and with Pluto aligned its an excellent time for pruning. So my question is, what in your life needs to be pruned back, so like the shrub it can get stronger and flower in the Spring?

Mercury-what Messages will be delivered?

The month ahead now shows Mercury in Aquarius. It has moved past all the Capricorn planets. The first was Pluto on 5th January, followed by a square to Mars on the 9th, then joining Saturn on 10th and Jupiter on 11th.

Watch the news as we approach the US Inauguration and of course the restrictions the government is imposing in the Uk due to Covid.

Aquarians take Centre Stage

Now Jupiter and  Saturn are in the air sign of Aquarius I pray for more enlightened times. Aquarius is a fixed air sign so can be fixed in their mental attitude. However at its best it’s open minded and its cosmic mission is to promote community.

Do you have a planet in Aquarius? If so It will be activated this year by Jupiter. That’s Good!!!!

Key Dates

Sun in Capricorn from 21st December until 19th January when it moves into Aquarius.

New Moon at 23 degrees Capricorn on 13th January at 5.00 GMT. It joins Pluto, so could be especially troublesome, but can portend transformation in the long term.

Mercury is now in Aquarius. It goes retrograde in Aquarius on 30th January.

Venus is in Capricorn. It’s a Morning Star and will join Pluto on 28th at the Full Moon. It enters Aquarius on 1st February.

Mars is now direct in Taurus on 6th January. This is a sign ruled by Venus, so I hope there will be a softer approach to anger issues/getting needs met. Watch out for 12th, 20th and 23rd January when Mars can get headstrong and antsy.

Jupiter is now direct  It moved into Aquarius on 19th December for approx. 11 months. There is a brief period when it moves into Pisces on 13th May until 28th July as it retrogrades back into Aquarius.

Saturn is direct in Capricorn. It moves into Aquarius on 17th December. This ends two and a half years of Saturn in Capricorn so comes as a welcome relief for all Capricorns.

Uranus in Taurus is now retrograde activating 6-10 degrees Taurus. Make some practical changes in your life and throw out anything that doesn’t bring you joy! It goes direct on 14th January.

Neptune The Dreamer is now direct. In Pisces it favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate.  Neptune has been retrograde for 5 months since June 23rd, so we now have an opportunity to bring our dreams into manifestation. Trust your intuition.

Pluto in Capricorn is direct. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events. However it becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38.

The astrology of 2021 is an important year as Jupiter and Saturn are now in Aquarius. This means that they are no longer travelling with Pluto. The nodal axis which affects the eclipses, changed sign on June 5th in 2020 into Gemini North Node and Sagittarius South Node. They last for eighteen months before changing signs. This year is important for all Aquarians and those who have planets in Aquarius. Is that you?

The nodal axis connects us to the eclipses which are a wild card in astrology.

Annual Reports: 2 SkyLog Reports of 6 months each (Jan-end June 2021 and July-end Dec 2021) by Steven Forrest 

Each report called ‘Sky Log‘ gives you over 40 pages of in-depth predictions.  This report is usually sold as a 6 month report for £15. These reports are based on your transits and secondary progressions. The author Steven Forrest, has a great style and explains clearly and poetically – with no jargon – what the planetary transits signify for you.

“The future isn’t crystallized. It’s a wavering, quivering web of possibilities. How will they manifest? Much depends upon how you wield the magical wild card we call your freedom.

The planets offer advice. In a sense, they recommend certain choices over others. They seem biased toward your evolution. They often suggest that you take the less familiar path, the one that moves you into richer fields of your own potentiality.”

This report is based on your transits and secondary progressions for the year ahead. There are three parts to the report:-

THE INVITATION: First, the big questions. In the part of the report called THE INVITATION, he gives you that “mountain-top” perspective that enables you to make sense of the details. Steven speaks in normal English- no jargon – and gives a real depth of understanding to the major planets affecting you in the year ahead.

THE MEANS: He turns your attention to some secondary factors and offers suggestions, help, and support in responding to those big questions.

THE DETAILS: These minor transits unfold quickly. It’s a rare week that doesn’t contain at least a few. A report that discussed them all in the kind of microscopic detail we’ve applied to the major events would be several inches thick. In order to cover the daily astrological kaleidoscope within the practical limitations of the space available, we’ve resorted to producing capsulized one-sentence nuggets that compress a lot of information into a few words. So, slow down, shift gears, and let them wash over you. Think of these images more as daily meditations than as the kind of full-blown explanations to which you’ve gotten accustomed in the previous sections of SKYLOG.

Steven writes:- Throughout the following text, I’ll be endeavoring to write in plain English, but if you’re unfamiliar with the jargon of astrology, you’ll encounter a few words that may require definition. A “transiting” planet, for example, refers to the actual, current position of that planet in the sky. Sometimes the transiting planets form critical geometric angles with the natal planets in the birthchart, triggering developmental questions in your life. These critical angles are called “aspects.”

The “progressed” planets function in much the same way as the transiting planets, but we approach them a little differently. They’re like a script that’s been built into your birthchart. Just as we know that an oak tree will emerge from an acorn and bring forth its leaves in season, similarly each person’s birthchart contains within it the seeds of certain predictable developmental stages. Progressions spell out those stages.

These amazing 40 plus page reports of 6 months each Jan -July 2021, and July – end Dec 2021 are easy to understand and very detailed.
