MERCURY entered Capricorn this morning at 6:03 am. MERCURY shifts from fire to earth; from celebration and gifting, to getting down to work, business and serious visions.
MOON in Leo TRINE VENUS in Sagittarius gives us the celebratory spirit that our MERCURY just left behind. This is a celebration of our inner sensitive vulnerable child–the part of us that loves to give and receive love and affection from others! We can give and receive each others love through our “Happy New Year’s Spirit!” Its New Years Eve–The Last Day of 2012! ALthough this day is a gregorian calendar day, not a cosmic astrological date, it is a date that millions of people around the world honor as the “end of the old year and the beginning of the new one!!” Meanwhile, in the astrological cycles, we’ve just crossed the FULL MOON of the first lunar cycle of the New Era, although it began in the Old Era. We’re waning down in this transitional lunar cycle, crossing over between the old era of 5,000 years of patriarchal thinking to a New Era of 5,000 years of new thought. We choose what this new thought will be.
MARS SEXTILE URANUS at 6:31 pm, pst, brings us into the New Years Eve Celebration!! With MARS freshly into Aquarius SEXTILING Aquarius’ ruling planet, URANUS in Aries, Mars’ sign, we have enough fire power and seed power to build a big bonfire tonight, on behalf of all of humanity, and all of creation. Inside of this giant fire, we may toss all old beliefs that keep us from allowing every other member of creation to be our kin. All judgements must go. Its not that discernment and boundaries are not valid at times, however these boundaries that are “natural boundaries,” usually happen with grace, clarity and God–for example, the boundary between a tree and the air. This boundary is natural and clear. Other boundaries–that are man-made, may not be the right ones for the future. They may be the boundaries and beliefs that have held the previous era in place. This giant bonfire that we build is more than just a phoenix fire, where one may transform, no–this is bigger–it is a bonfire of all of the shadows of the past 5,000 years. May rise this morning with the moon in deep water scorpio. We’ve got our feelers in our depths. We are each like an ocean liner, made up of a giant ship of belief-structures, floating along on the surface of some miraculous fluid substance upon which we sail our ships. We’re going along and then, due to weather or other variable factors, “course changes,” occur, where we need to re-cast all of our navigational plans. Today is one of those days. Its a transitional plan-rearrango kind of day! Its best to spend some time with our ears on our heart, seeing what course-changes our own heart may make in our plans.
MERCURY is INCONJUNCT (150 degrees) JUPITER at 11:16 am and this calls us to communicate with all the parts of ourselves that are involved in the planning of our lives, to have a conference about “course corrections,” on our path ahead.
MOON SQUARES NEPTUNE at 7:17 pm pdt and we may get lost in the best way in some Saturday evening music! If there is overwhelm, music and dancing is the solution. The MOON goes VOID with its final square from Scorpio, before entering Sagittarius at 9:42 pm pdt.
When MOON enters Sagittarius, it takes us on course with our cosmic traveller and we’re aiming our surfboards for galactic center! Late Night at 1:38 am pdt we are touched with the fiery enthusiasm of future’s yet uncreated, knocking on the secret doors of our hearts, asking us to rise to the occasion of the new world that is longing to be born through us. The earth and cosmos ushers us across our next threshold, a gateway of heart maturity, as a humanity, where we mature enough to steward the earth back into balance, from the imbalances we’ve wreaked in our “adolescent phase” of our own evolution as a species.
