New Moon: 26 Capricorn 54

CypNMcapJan17
Base Camp

So here we are at this much celebrated new moon in the sign of concrete, material gains. In 2018, Capricorn seeks the Ego’s proof of place in a rapidly changing world. I like to think of us as climbers milling around base camp, peering over our sketchy maps of the terrain above, making friends with the guides and listening with rapt attention as they offer their take on upcoming weather and trail conditions.

Base camp feels intense; there’s excitement in the air yet a prickly sense that you can’t go back. Sometimes the sun shines brilliantly over the mountain side but ominous clouds and icey winds pass, too. The guides admit that nothing is certain but that the trek is a ‘go’… We might feel very small at moments but also revel in our sturdy boots and whatever hi-tech clothing and equipment we’ve managed to assemble.

There are six archetypes trekking through Capricorn and all of them rule a house (set of themes) in your wheel. Significantly, one of them is Saturn – the Best Guide in these here parts. His influence and agenda take second place to none and his first order of business is to make clear that he dictates when you leave base camp. Each of us have unique matters (theme set/s) to attend to before we can hit a vertical stride.

From Capricorn, I learned to step up and take responsibility; learned poise and accountability; learned, when the time came, to be a leader.  – A. E. Kent (source)

On The Value of Connected Outcome

Capricorn is the sign of leadership and, though not nearly as often mentioned, all the work that goes into becoming one worthy to lead. We often think of leadership in terms of Those Above Us in groups, in corporations/our own place of work, in our religious center, local council, PTA but what if we expand upon the meaning and bring this quality right into our own mind-body space. What if we took the lead with all the chattering in our head, in charting out the pros and cons of a course change, in deciding when enough is enough or that it is not yet time to rest.

What if we make a decision that, right here and now, (this) is my perception of What Is and based upon that perception, I draw a symbolic line on the ground. Today, on (this) side of the line, I confine myself, I enclose myself in a space of cool appraisal and ponder which goal-wish or two has the best chance of concrete advancement. What needs to be repaired, what’s ready to go, what’s too heavy to carry by myself, what’s essential to success? And I lead. I lead me, my head space and my energy flow in stepping over that line.

One thing is certain: we aren’t supposed to feel like we are in this alone, except in rare cases. For some, this is about team work in getting to a specific summit. For just about everyone, this signifies the great treasures to be found in a support system. The value of connected outcomes, regardless of market place niche or life role played, are made plain.

There is an invitation for ALL of us in these days to look deeply into the quality and quantity of our exchanges with others, particularly those based on high levels of faith and trust that seem to have crept in under the radar. Insights expand awareness and create tremendous opportunities for us to refill our soul-cups and quench our thirst if we will to take the initiative. Do try to avoid the proverbial hiccups that can come from gulping too quickly. 😉 From initiative point to quenching point, it’s got to be a co-determined pace.

Sending new moon wishes for Self leadership,

Full Moon: 11 Cancer 37

True Foundations

(So how’s your bounce going? Read this for a better grasp on cycles within cycles.)

This full moon in Cancer activates a grand trine in water – a spontaneous series of course adjustments to be made as we coast onto the shores at the foot of Life Mountain. With Mars conjoining Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune pulsing incessantly in Pisces, the conditions lit up by the perigee moon will find those with natal placements in range experiencing a choppy stretch and a bumpy landing…

Does this sound exhilarating or treacherous? What are you fighting for/what are you challenging? What obstacles do you see as between you and your deepest desires? Your agenda and focus are fueling the atmosphere around you. Revelations, completions (and here we must factor in the already present general sense of emotional exhaustion) coupled with your inner child’s response to becoming conscious of the impact can churn this water current.

If empathy and balance weren’t baked into the scenario culminating now, this is your moment to make fundamental edits for the good of your family or tribe/to right any passive-aggressive wrongs/to honor and re-consecrate your Rest and Fortification space. The integrity of what we wish to build can only be as sturdy as our proverbial kitchen table or as purposeful as our favorite chill-out space. As within, so with-out; as below, so above.

Thoughts for All of Us

plumb line: noun  A line with a plumb attached to it, used for finding the depth of water or determining the vertical on an upright surface. (source)

Spelunkers often unroll rope as they tunnel and builders never nail down until they have checked their plumb line. As Saturn, the Teacher, acclimates and flexes in his homecoming, we’ll also be fully responsible for acting upon lessons incorporated over the last few years. This applies just as much to anyone who decides to ‘start from scratch’. We may very well experience the feeling-roots of this first half of January again in early summer. Will that be ok with you?

As a macrosystem, humanity is beginning to move from theory to clinical trials; new works and wonders still forming from the depths of our ancient tool box. We are flowing into a ‘new old-fashioned way’, to borrow a phrase from a christmas song, and as a collective, we intuit this: we’ll all have to make adjustments to our plumb line. We’ll comply, of course. It’s just that we’ll also keep certain lines, tethers and bonds maintained and in play, even if they cost us dearly.  Any drama arising in these days is meant to prompt a reality check. What do you really need and where is that best sourced? As within, so with-out; as below, so above.

Cancer and Capricorn both know well in their highest forms that Sufficiency and Time are not enemy concepts. It is our relationship to them that can stir up angst. As Saturn subtracts, Cancer spontaneously fills. You can count on this fact. Breathe through any panic twinges with your own recitation of the facts in your world. See this first month of 2018 as emotional inventory space-time no matter how busy you get in the concrete jungle. Take a moment to say to your Self, ‘keep the back burners simmering on who and how I love in the coming weeks, please.’ and you’re sure to get feedback. How’s that for a hi-tech hack?

You need to know how strong and purpose-built your Home and Besties are and you’ve got opportunites in 2018 to plumb your heart depths on these matters. We’ll add further layers of data as eclipse season arrives across the axis of the Leo/Aquarious (the Performer/the Audience)…and then we’ll see just what kind of a fan club we need.

May your cup overflow with faith in your very capable Self,
– weaver  a.k.a. another member of your fan club 🙂

New Moon: 26 Libra 35

Straightening Crooked Lines

There’s a lot of focus on the opposition of the outer planet, Uranus, on this new moon and certainly the Sky God packs a walloping current. If you have natal placements within range of these degrees in any of the cardinal signs, you are going to feel it…and yet, I am reading a notably cooler and more composed response will be forthcoming. Nice!

The outer planets are always grinding an agenda, continually vibrating a subliminal frequency; like a constant element in the crock pot supper. Over the course of experience, we learn to adapt and cope, to prioritize our various senses of concern and urgency. At this time of mental and emotional reboot, I think we’ll find ourselves pleasantly surprised at how well we merge with or deflect Uranian energy.

Venus is THE boss in Libra and particularly disposed to a balanced emotional state. Those that want to center and rest themselves will find satisfying segments of Space. Those that pursue clarity on next steps will receive a sign, appealing or not.

Saturn in Sagittarius gives this seed-planting time solid under-girding. Libra is pro-active and the apple of Teacher’s eye. Current lesson themes cover more than bricks and mortar. We need to care about the structural integrity of all of our close connections. Is that bond solid/compatible long term? Also, Saturn is particularly willing to hear cases for bridge-building outside of the norms. That doesn’t happen so often!

Whatever may spur you or an Other to wish for and launch a new course as pertains to matters of union, ethics, aesthetic/personal appearance, a more just/fair/truthful value system Becoming Reality will matter far more than the opinions and antics within The Group. For those within range of influence and their loved ones, this spur is a long time coming: NOW is the time for practicing new and/or updated forms.

magical magnetism to you this new moon,

  • weaver
