The Full Moon which occurred on December 12th 2019, brought with it, as Full Moons do, critical mass energy colored by the communicative sign of Gemini within a flurry of activity.
We continue to move through time and descend into shorter daylight hours, into the cold of the darkest night. The longest day of the year, the Winter Solstice.
Awaiting the birth of the Sun with a sigh of relief. As we acknowledge with gratitude the glorious vibrant continuation of life as it rises up. The light of day emerging as the Sun appears upon the horizon.
Marking the time of the beginning of our upward spiral into rebirth. To eventually delight in the warmth of the return of the light and the lengthening of days. Even as it is that the Season Of Winter has officially begun.
It is the fallow pall of Winter that teaches us to be patient and persevere through the paradoxical cycle of this powerful season. In faith, trust and with dignity we continue on our journey, upward and onward although cold and darkness abound.
It is good we do so since we are moving into the Season of Capricorn with its Saturnine seriousness encroaching upon us the manner and ways of the disciple.
Discipline and boundaries, the double edged sword to be gleaned within this Season as Saturn ruler of Capricorn serves to lead us towards our destiny.
Did you not enjoy the Season of the Sun’s journey through Sagittarius?
I know you did. Delighting in its brightly lit point of power illumined by the glowing flames of the Sun’s reflection on the Silvery Moon, as it moved in its brief transit through the sign of Gemini donning its gregarious social butterfly buzz.
And now we are within the cycle of the phase of the waning Moon, a good time to be utilized as breathing space. A momentary cycle in which to reflect and reevaluate. The waning Moon Cycle is a good time to sort out and take stock of what you’ve been working on within the past month. What has your focus been and where are you at about things?
Even more significantly at this particular December juncture it’s a good time to reflect on the passing year as we move forward towards not only a new year but a new decade.
‘Tis a good time to reflect on how this passing year has been for you.
In 2019 what gifts and resources along with what challenges and boulders to overcome were put before you.
Did you overcome them or have you yet to go through them?
What have you learned?
What have you received?
What to let go of?
What’s the next step you need to take in order to fulfill yourself ?
What will bring you closer to where you want to be?
Astrologically what lies ahead is a very powerful time of culmination, transformation and evolution. Most Astrologers are quite excited by the fascinating infrequent transits and planetary movements that are about to transpire. Albeit we have been feeling their potent affects for quite some time.
January 12th 2020 will be the date when Saturn and Pluto shall be in exact conjunction by degree in Capricorn as Jupiter ingresses to Capricorn.
Jupiter being the Planet of expansion, that is the expansion of all possibilities, both positive and negative. Remember to be mindful of your thoughts during this time, so you can reap the benefits and opportunities this energy can bring.
Jupiter is a mind expanding Planet pertaining to matters of justice, philosophy, meaningful thoughts and ideas which can enliven and bring forth the louder voices of reason, faith and hope to help overcome challenges.
Saturn in Capricorn is about structures with integrity while Pluto in Capricorn tears down irrelevant structures making way for transformation and rebirth to occur. That is what makes the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn on January 12th, 2020 such an anticipated event.
I must confess to you that my thinking and hope is that perhaps this Capricorn stellium with its need for integrity and solid foundations of stability is a powerful moment in our humanity that could be responsible for bringing about the needed evolutionary healing of split-off narcissistic thinking with its mechanistic antiquated paradigm leanings that erroneously place unrealisticvalue on concretized material reality as a measure of ones value and entitlements as a human being.
The combination of both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn at this particular moment in our evolutionary growth could be the catalyst that brings about a needed opening for humanity to be able to value and cherish the reality of instinctual heart and soul consciousnesswhich serves to transform and heal the destructive tendencies of a fractured society.
A fractured society so blinded to its own humanity that its peril is being motivated by a deceitful devaluation of evidence-based-reality, hellbent in its dedication to a toxic fiction that falsely upholds delusions of grandeur based on well defended insecurities.
So while the antiquated systems of the up-down, good-bad, punish-reward vertical hierarchy is in the foothills of its own destruction, the beat goes on.
However, there is now a calling that fiercely inspires the necessary and needed raging voices and actions of many enlivened woke outraged people.
This powerful moment serves as a source of inspiration and hope. People are becoming more aware. The energy and movements of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn is resonating with an awareness, a kind of unthought known, that is making way for a cultural shift.
Our eco-systems, economy and collective global community are desperately needing to evolve forward towards an Earth loving level of humanizing balance and harmony.
This nourishing kind of stability supports life to unfold in harmony so that we begin to remember the benefits of a horizontal grounded civilization that nourishes all peoples and creatures with respect and dignity upon the grounding of a healthy evolving sustainable Planet Earth.
It is OK to be optimistic and hopeful once we are aware that this current Capricorn massive conjunction slowly but surely makes its way into the sign of Aquarius.
Aquarius a hopeful note, which serves to imbue our consciousness with genius and a deep commitment to an equal society that recognizes the right to a life of dignity for all.
Aquarius is devoted to a society and culture that supports sustainable systems of living that benefit all.
This Winter Solstice marks an ending of a year, a decade and a cycle as surely as it marks a time of new beginnings.
A new portal to enter and explore.
Take the power of this longest night to reflect on new goals so you can map out your path as the New Year and New Decade unfolds.
Jung says, ” and when you’re on the path you’re at the goal”.

From knowledge and understanding comes the clarity that supports the integration of Self and Soul.
It is with insatiable curiosity that I wonder about so many aspects of being alive and fully present here on planet Earth.
I love studying the phenomena of Volcanoes, Earthquakes, weather patterns, the oceans and the formation of mountains.
All this along with the awareness of Outer Space.
The worlds beyond our Earth. I am in unquenchable awe about our galaxy and the galactic phenomena that surrounds our galaxy.
I mean, how did we get here?!?!
The IS-ness of it all is quite mind-blowing to me.
And then there is Astrology.
Yes, astrology defined, “ is a pseudoscience that claims to divine information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the movements and relative positions of celestial objects.”
Astrology nourishes our imagination. It connects us to the creative, non linear side of our brain. Our intuition and heart to our mind.
The awareness that we vibrate through the electromagnetic elements contained in our own bodies along with the electromagnetic elements of the celestial bodies, aka the planets.
It’s with intuitive psychic understanding as well as my studies in psychotherapy and the healing arts that I bring to astrology consultations.
It is my deep desire to serve and help folks realize their full potential through the map of the soul, the astrology chart.
It is from knowledge and understanding comes the clarity that supports the integration of self and soul.
And that is a sexy way of being fully embodied, fulfilled and being alive at this magnificent moment in time.
