Astrological update for the week of January 2-9, 2023

Well folks, we made it to 2023: the year everything will change (see this post for more details if you missed it), and the portal to the door of change will begin at the Aquarius New Moon later in the month. Read on to know more!

Mercury is still retrograde and will not turn direct until later this month. In fact, the conjunction of the Sun to Mercury later this weeks marks the midpoint of that cycle. Mercury represents the mind and the processing of information, and it is in Capricorn right now where all of the details are important. When Mercury appears to be retrograde it is closer to Earth than at other times, and all matters of communication and equipment become more important and require more attention to operate smoothly. Most of you know by now not to let that plant a seed of fear – we can still live our lives with a minimum of worry, but our attention will likely keep us drawn back into something from the past that needs to be re-adjusted or re-paired.

Full Moon in Cancer on January 6th For now will open the portal of emotions and feeling to guide us into the high mental vibration of Aquarius. There is a sense here of emotions conflicting with the mind; Mercury conjoins the Sun (the halfway point of the Mercury Retrograde cycle), favoring the thoughts and ideas of the solar consciousness, and opposes the Moon in an attempt to block and diminish the lunar light of interior wisdom.

Astrological forecast for the week of January 10, 2022: Mercury retrograde and a Plutonic Full Moon

This week we actually have two planets changing direction: Mercury will turn retrograde on January 14th, and Uranus turns direct January 18th after being retrograde for the past six months or so. Mercury and Uranus are related symbolically as they both are involved in processes of the intellect: Mercury rules the small mind – the day to day thoughts and information that filter through our intelligence and inform our world, and Uranus is associated with the higher mind which translates information from multilevel dimensions of consciousness (intuition and insight, the “aha” moment).  Uranus of course is a much slower moving planet than Mercury, so its movements take much longer and it has been stationary for the past couple of months in preparation for this change of direction whereas Mercury has been stationary for the past few days.

When planets appear to be stationary their influence is more potent, especially if that planet is forming an angle to a planet in our chart. In any case, this is a week in which the processing of information is critical: communication, learning, thoughts, mechanical equipment – all of these things are under focus right now. Under the influence of Uranus which demands change from old paradigms we may be chafing while in yet another quarantine, but we may also be blessed with inventive ideas for how to change our world to better adapt to the current situation. Under the influence of Mercury stationing as it turns retrograde we may find ourselves stuck in a problem for which we can see no escape, and in that case the Uranian brilliance can help us to suddenly discover the solution.

Venus is still retrograde of course, and clients are […]

Astrological update for the week of December 28, 2020: Cancer Full Moon and the New Year!

This week we make the transition into 2021.  I’ll be posting my 2021 forecast tomorrow, but meanwhile here’s a look at the week!  There aren’t any major planetary aspects so the Moon has an opportunity to shine, and shine it will on December 30th when it is full in Cancer.  Take a look, and the transcription is below. ❤️

Transcript by bots, roughly edited by me.

Hey everybody, my name is Lynn Hayes Welcome back to my channel. In today’s video, I’m going to be talking a little bit about the astrology of 2021, the year that’s coming up, and also, of course about the astrology for the week.

I want to welcome you back if this is your first time, thank you for joining me here. And let’s go ahead and begin, I’ll be putting a link to my report on the astrology of 2021 in the description box. And I will be doing an accompanying video next week. I have found in doing these videos that in talking, I come up with different information than in writing and vice versa. So I’m still pumping out the written material as well as the videos and I hope you’ll enjoy either or both. Some people I know just like to watch and some people just like to read. And for me I like to talk and write. So that works out perfectly.

In any case, I’m not going to spend much time on the astrology of 2021 right now. […]

The astrological importance of the January 10th eclipse

A lunar eclipse in Cancer on January 10th will add a particularly big wallop to the astrological energies that we are facing this week (read more about that here).  On the 12th we have a rare alignment between Saturn, planet of tests and challenges, to Pluto, planet of destruction and regeneration.  This conjunction takes place in the sign of Capricorn – the sign under which we learn to master the material world through hard work, discipline, and achievement.  This is a cycle that only occurs every 30-38 years, and it is associated with challenging circumstances that test us but eventually bring about a seismic change in the foundations upon which we build our lives.

A lunar eclipse occurs at the time of the Full Moon, when the Moon is opposite the Sun and the Earth’s shadow falls upon the Moon.  This can only happen when the Moon and Sun are within fifteen degrees from the lunar nodes, the point at which the Moon’s orbit intersects with the orbit of the Sun.  The lunar nodes are considered to be points of fate and destiny, with the North Node representing the future, and the South Node representing the past.  This is why eclipses are often thought to be connected with events that are fated in some way.

This particular eclipse falls on the axis of Cancer and Capricorn, the polarity between the softness and vulnerability of feelings (Cancer) and the hard cold reality of Capricorn. .  Under the influence of this polarity we are often faced with a choice or decision between our emotional world (Cancer) and the practical needs of a life in the world (Capricorn).  Because the Moon is full, emotions are heightened anyway and […]

All hail the Cancerian Full Moon at the Winter Solstice!

The astrological Solstice occurs when the Sun enters Capricorn (for my Southern Hemisphere friends this is actually the Summer Solstice).  Solstices and Equinoxes are important energetic gateways having to do with the balance of light and darkness.  At the Winter Solstice, the days are at their shortest and as humans we are pulled inwards into deep soul reflection.

The astrology of the Solstice Full Moon

This year, a Full Moon at zero degrees Cancer marks the entry of the Sun into Capricorn.  The Full Moon is the height of the lunar cycle – the lunar energy of instinct and emotional truth is maximized, and the power fueled by the realm of feelings is at its height.  At the same time, the cycle of darkness and light is at its nadir.  The combination of these two effects opens a portal of energy which we can use to effect powerful change in our own life.  And I believe, in the world around us.

When the Moon is full in Cancer, it opposes the Capricorn Sun, also at zero degrees.  The Cancer/Capricorn polarity asks that we balance the realm of emotion and the inner life of the soul (Cancer) with the world of the trappings of the material world: success, structure, rules and order.  But at the Full Moon the lunar influence is at its most powerful, drawing us more deeply into the inner world of feelings.

The Cancerian Full Moon is packed full of feeling and emotion, and the power of that emotion has the potential to transform your life for good and for ill.  When we harness our emotions to our Will, we create magic.  A little bit of intention can go a long way towards creating a lasting and positive transformation and that […]
