Aquarius New Moon January 27: Time for a new perspective

Aquarius new moon 2017The New Moon in Aquarius occurs on January 27th. Aquarius is the sign of social justice and rational thinking – it inspires us towards independence and innovation.  At the New Moon the Sun and Moon align to merge the conscious Self as represented by the Sun with the instinctive emotional patterns of the Moon.  This linking up of these two luminaries is the beginning of the lunar cycle – the Sun solarizes the Moon and infuses it with a new energy, symbolically offering us a new beginning ourselves. This is a time of new beginnings and a time when our new intentions can take hold, helping us to start anew.

Aquarius is an air sign – detached and concerned with matters of the intellect, Aquarius encourages us to see the world in a reasonable and rational way.  This perspective helps us towards a clearer vision of the world and a need for social justice and equality.  Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus – the lord of radical change and innovation, and an opposition (aspect of tension) between abundant Jupiter and Uranus is embedded in the chart and encourages greater expansion (Jupiter) of our ideals (Uranus) and new ways of looking at the world and new patterns of living.  A harmonious trine from Saturn (strong foundation) enables us to construct these new patterns in ways that will enhance our lives.

The airiness of the New Moon combines with the fact that four planets are in Pisces which is a very watery sign – this helps us to integrate the intellectual brilliance of the Aquarian influence with the sensitivity and imagination of Pisces.

Creativity abounds under this New Moon, but a challenging Venus aspect […]

Sunday inspiration: We’ve come a long way, baby

Image from Refinery29 on Instagram

The Age of Cancer, approximately 6000-8000 bce, was marked by the rise of agriculture as a more reliable means to feed humanity than simple hunting and gathering.  The Moon, ruler of the nurturing and sign Cancer, became elevated to goddess stature and we begin to see cults of the “Mother Goddess” and fertility cults.  With people beginning to settle into homes and communities, paternity could not be established but maternity could, so the lines of family origin were traced through the mother.  This matrilinear culture persisted through the Age of Gemini (approximately 4000-6000 bce) which continued the establishment of communities and language, and into the age of Taurus (approximately 2000-4000 bce)

Under the influence of the warlike Age of Aries (approximately 2000 bce to the beginning of the common era) the concept of monotheism arose and with it a more patriarchal warrior society to defend the single god.  The role of women became diminished (they are hardly mentioned in the Hebrew bible) and while societies remained matrineal in nature they were ruled by men and dependent on them economically.

This continued through the Piscean age (approximately 0-2100 ce) with the rise of the ancient Church and its denigration of sexuality and emphasis on the idea that any man born from woman is born in sin. While some women rose to power through family connections it was a relatively rare thing and women held no government positions unless they were of royal blood.  They were unable to attend school and were subservient to their male relatives.  If they attempted to take on too much power in their societies they were looked on suspiciously and for about 300 years burned as […]

US Inauguration astrology and the Donald Trump update

2017 inaugurationDonald J. Trump will be inaugurated as President of the United States on January 20th at 12:00 pm, Washington DC.  The astrological chart for the inauguration is the chart for the presidency, so let’s take a look.

Inauguration Chart astrology

The Sun is in the first degree of Aquarius, the sign of freedom and social justice as well as radical behavior and revolution from the past, and it sits in the 10th house of highest aspiration, so this is a very favorable indication of the success of the presidency.  The chart has no planets in retrograde motion which is extremely rare – this suggests that there will not be a lot of looking back into the past for reflection but instead events will unfold rather quickly.

The Moon is in Scorpio which is all about dominance and who has more power than whom, but it is well aspected with a trine to Pallas (wisdom), Neptune (spirit) and Venus (attraction), all in Pisces to soften the Scorpionic intensity.  The Moon is in the 6th house where it’s all about getting things done, which is a nice place for it.

The 11th house is packed with a stellium of planets in Pisces which is not a great sign for political advantage.  Pisces is dreamy and mystical and often too concerned with lofty matters to be very practical or realistic.  The Venus/Neptune conjunction in Pisces makes it difficult to know who our allies are and whether they can be trusted, especially in the 11th house of shared goals.  Chiron (emotional wounds) is packed in there between Venus (allies) and […]

Pluto, psychology, transformation and the devil

Pluto astrology

You’ll be reading a lot about Pluto in these pages in the next months because I’m just entering a cycle of Pluto to an important system in my chart (geeky astrological details: to my Sun/Saturn/Neptune conjunction which squares Uranus).  Pluto was discovered in 1930 and is associated with psychology and the understanding of our hidden motivations and the mental and emotional factors that underlie our actions.

Pluto, of course, was the Lord of the Underworld.  In psychological astrology he represents the Underworld of the psyche – the secrets that we hide from others and from ourselves, the dim recesses of the mind where our darkest emotions are tucked away.  In transformational astrology I consider Pluto to act as the “Will of the Higher Self” – the part of us that encourages us to transform our secret darkness into an awakened Self through wisdom and understanding.

If we look to the mythological history of Pluto (or Hades as he was called in ancient Greece) we find that Hades was closely identified with Ploutos, the god of wealth and agricultural bounty. Hades himself was a god of the hidden wealth from under the earth such as precious metals and gems, as well as being the protector and defender of the dead.

We often think of Pluto as being a ruthless Lord of Death and destruction, but this early association of Pluto/Hades with protecting the dead reveals a secret to the Pluto archetype that we don’t often consider – Pluto’s real role is to facilitate our personal evolution if we allow it to.  Under Pluto’s influence we find ourselves facing life in a far more intense way than might be comfortable, but it’s all for the sake […]

America’s Pluto transit and a growing love of Putin

US Sibley chart astrologyI just watched an interesting piece by Vox on the growing rise of admiration of Vladmir Putin by Republicans in the US.  (Youtube video below).  In 2014 70% of Republicans disapproved of Vladmir Putin.  By July 2016, Putin’s favorability ratings had spiked so that only 10% of Republicans disapproved of him.

Putin is known as a strongman – he has allegedly ordered the murders of journalists and forcibly invaded other countries just because he could.  Republicans, being from Mars where Democrats are from Venus, respect this kind of power in a way that Democrat-leaning types fear it.

Nations have astrological charts just as individuals do, and in 2014 transiting Pluto began a pass over the US Sun (geeky astrological detail: and the US progressed Jupiter which is beginning to align with the Sun in the natal chart).  Pluto is concerned with issues of power and empowerment, so it’s not surprising that this became more of an issue and something that Americans were grappling with.

This Pluto cycle has now subsided so it will be interesting to see how Americans view the new President’s love of this kind of display of power and whether they will continue to  admire it.
