NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE occurs on January 4, 2011 at 04:02:37 AM EST|
The Lunation chart of this Solar Eclipse presents with the Lights kissing in Capricorn and in square to Saturn, the ruler of that sign, exalted in Libra. The emphasis is on the Cardinal quality, that which aspires to its highest ideal. The Sun, or our radiant light and the Moon, our reflective nature - are each challenged to respond with integrity and justice with this powerful angle. Because the Sun will be occluded, ego or projection will be dimmed and the soul will reflect the truth in this cycle. Venus, the planet of love and the arts, is in Scorpio and is the most highly aspected planet in this chart. It forms a square with both Neptune and Chiron conjunct in Aquarius as it forms a trine to both Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in Pisces. The esoteric arts and modalities of health and healing will be in the spotlight until the next Solar Eclipse which does not occur until June 1, 2011!
FULL MOON occurs on January 19, 2011 at 04:21:25 PM EST
This Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are in the Anaretic degree of Capricorn and Cancer respectively. This intensifies the desire to overcome and instills a need to make a mammoth effort to strive toward our personal best in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The Moon is in trine to both Uranus and Jupiter conjunct in Pisces as it opposes the Capricorn Sun. The Capricorn Sun sextiles the same conjunction inferring that even the practical and often taciturn qualities of Capricorn can see the potential in breaking free from old statutes that prevent progress. The brilliant or outrageous solution may just be ideal with this configuration! Expect some surprises, not only in the rhythm of your life, but in the news at large!
Mercury Direct but Still in its Shadow Alert!
Mercury, the planetary energy that orchestrates perception and communication stationed retrograde in Capricorn on December 10th at 07:06 AM and will stationed direct on December 30th at 02:21 AM. Be aware that Mercury will not return to the degree of its station and will still be “in its shadow” until January 18th! Proceed – but do so with caution and foresight! False optimism as a slingshot effect can occur when a little bit of good news peeks through the clouds of the storm. Blend qualified optimism with realism until that date!
Jupiter enters Aries!!
Jupiter, the Greater Benefic of the Zodiac, will enter Aries on January 22 at 12:11 PM EST! Jupiter is the largest planet and generally is thought to bring good fortune as it magnifies everything it touches! This year it will be in Aries only until the 4th of June. Normally, it is in and out of a sign for nearly a year. The sign of Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of action, blood, war and libido! Many are concerned with increased volcanic activity, forest fires and a heating up of the warlike factions on the planet. This is consistent with the forces the will be activated. It is important to remember that Aries is the sign of the Ram – but also the sign of the Lamb. Often sacrifices need to be embraced to create peace. Jupiter’s early entrance into Taurus this year will prevail – even in its typical retrograde cycle. Common sense and stability will accompany this shift. BE who you are, strive to reach your goals in a strong forward launch! You have six months to create your inspiration with a smooth landing in manifestation in June.
Saturn Retrograde Alert!
Saturn, exalted in Libra will station retrograde on January 25th at 01.11 AM EST and will remain so until June 12th at 11:52 PM EST!! It retrogrades but a few days after Jupiter enters Aries and remains so until after Jupiter makes its entrance into Taurus. The balance between the expansive energy of Jupiter and the constraints of conservative Saturn will be off kilter for two seasons. The beauty of this cycle is that injustices can be corrected due to a dramatic realization of the TRUTH. Agreements can be reworked; negotiations can fall into delay but are fairer in the final outcome. On a socio-economic level, the trend will be to return to a time when the World was more at peace and we embraced more peace within ourselves. To feed your soul in this cycle be sure to read some of the great diplomats, philosophers and poets of the past. Listen to the music that soothes your soul. Mend weak bridges in relationships by remembering the great blessing that many have been in your life.
