Inspired to write a post today about our current astrological climate. Today is the 2nd day of Winter (with Capricorn at 1°). The Moon trines our Sun in Virgo, which incites our ability to manifest. For Cap and Virgo are Earth signs. The root of manifest is mani which in Latin is manus, which means hand (physical realm). Earth is the slowest vibrations of all 4 elements. It is the culmination of the spark of life (fire), the mental energies (air), and said energies in motion (water) that creates the Earth. The soul, mind, and spirit bodies create the flesh. So above and unseen, so below and is shown.
Jupiter is currently in Cancer. In traditional astrology, that is a most favorable placement- I think it is because Cancer is the Cosmic mother/portal to the spiritual realm, and Jupiter is expanded consciousness. When we are open and patient and nurtured, we are able to access universal consciousness and grow without inhibitions. The opposite of this would be Capricorn, and not only is the Sun present, but so is Pluto. Pluto is also expansion and growth, but from within. Planets in opposition are supposed to create a balance between two energies. Thus, we are experience a direct relation between our inner and outer growth. The moor we handle our inner demons, the moor our consciousness expands....
This is further elucidated through Saturn. Saturn, typically ruler of Capricorn, is in Scorpio (home to Pluto). Here, Pluto and Saturn flip flop- but the message is clear. Wherever the energies exist in your chart is where you need to do some inner soul discipline. You need to be that old teacher that won't let you turn in mediocre work for half credit- it's all or none. And most importantly, don't try to hide from your Self because like Bob Marley (PBUHI say "you can't run away from yourSelf"
Uranus opposes Mars (Aries-Libra respectively)- Uranus is great sudden change. It's like a wind that blows through your home and just and quickly, blow right out- what is left depends on the sign. In Aries, it brings a trail of fire- starting something new and burning the old at the same time. And Mars, which is action and energy itSelf, is in Libra- it's the cool, fall breeze that swirls the leaves and refreshes our minds with lov and beauty. Our revolutionary fire is balanced with the winds of unity- deep breathes and fire breathes can bring us to the lov and light within our Hearts and minds.
Speaking of lov, Venus is at 26° Capricorn (God degree)- it is in retrograde as well. Retrogrades give us a chance to stay in an energy long enough to master it in our own personal charts. Many people think retrogrades are all negative, but I also think we need to stay in a particular energy if we have been missing the mark. With the Creator, there are no mis-takes, only opportunities for us to learn and grow. Venus here stands alone- so when all the dust settles from the ups and downs we experience (how do we reach balance without experiencing inbalance), we will know that the most important principle to stand is LOV. without it, we lack TRUTH, PEACE, FREEDOM, and JUSTICE.
Weeks ago, I recall stating that between July and December, Uranus would be in retrograde. He went direct on Dec. 17th, same day as the Full Moon. Basically, it's all catching up to us. Be open and aware, be diligent, but most importantly, be open to TRU knowledge via deep investigation from within. Be logical and disciplined and you will hear the voice of Allah. Stay tru, and always follow through. Beware of Moors that seek to take you off your square- whether that be in mindstate, in emotional body, in your physical (what you eat, where you go), etc...and KNOW YOURSELF...
Merry Christmas to you All (the time of Moor Light)
