Astrology in my world: Sunday tribe poetry

“Tell your story.
Shout it. Write it.
Whisper it if you have to.
But tell it.
Some won’t understand it. 
Some will outright reject it.
But many will
thank you for it.
And then the most
magical thing will happen.
One by one, voices will start
whispering, ‘Me, too.’
And your tribe will gather.
And you will never
feel alone again.” 

–L.R. Knost


I found this poem in a wonderful Facebook group called “Ravenous Butterflies” and it really resonated with me because of my current Saturn transit.  All of us are experiencing a tightening of the conjunction between Saturn (tests and challenges) and Pluto (total transformation) to some degree.  The combination of these two planets generally denotes a destructive force that can clear the path of any debris that is interfering with the natural movement of the Universe towards balance.  This has the potential to be a positive force, but it is also associated with contraction and challenge, especially now since both planets are in the contracting sign of Capricorn.  This week I’ll be writing a comprehensive post about this alignment, which just gives us a sneak peek this summer and culminates in 2020.

Anyone who has planets between 18 and 26 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries will be affected more personally by this planetary alignment (if you want to know how you are affected leave your birth data in the comments and I’ll tell you), and I am one of those people.  I have four planets in those degrees, including my own Saturn/Sun conjunction.  This Saturn/Sun conjunction is a rough challenge that often brings a deep sense of loneliness and isolation.  The beauty though of Saturn is that if you can live through the difficult early years, the years after midlife are so much easier.  I […]

This Capricorn Full Moon helps to calm rattled nerves

Mars turned retrograde on June 26th, and even the Planetary K index which measures geomagnetic activity reacted with a level 5 storm, helping to intensity even more the aggression and heightened energy of the Mars station (catch up with Mars retrograde here).

The Moon is full in steady Capricorn now to help us find greater balance. Capricorn is the penultimate sign of practicality and worldly achievement – it helps us to focus our energy towards a goal and gain great rewards.  Capricorn is ruled by the Saturn – the old goat of time, the devil that we dislike but who is actually our greatest ally.  Saturn is like the very strict teacher who makes you practice your craft for hours at a time and tells you about all of your mistakes, but who you later thank for making you the skilled artist that you have become.  Saturn carries a dual role in this full moon – not only does it rule the Capricorn Moon, but it also conjoins the Moon giving this lunar event a double whammy of Saturnian structure.

Saturn, the Lord of Time, reminds us that “tempus fugit” – time is fleetinCapricorn full moong and we don’t know how long our life will be.  Saturn urges that we make the most out of what we have here in this moment. The Sun is in sensitive Cancer now, but under the influence of Capricorn we put our Cancerian emotions aside to do That Which Must Be Done.  Capricorn urges us to set goals and strategies for achievement, so this will help us to harness the intensity of Mars and put it to work.
