 Splashing Round

The Solar in Capricorn is the chief who delineates the trail to achievement for everyone. However Capricorn can typically be slightly harsh, slightly too dedicated to the underside line, and impatient once we don’t reside as much as its requirements.

As the Solar in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces (Jan. 15, 2024, 4:38 pm PST), it’s guided a bit by softer concerns. How can our buildings and varieties and plans work to make the world a greater place? How can they assist others in want and to make us higher folks as properly?

The Solar is at 25º21’ Capricorn on the Sabian image, 26 Capricorn, A water sprite. This pleasant image reveals a playful aspect of Capricorn, displaying its capability to be in and loving the bodily world. It defies our regular conception of the signal, nevertheless it fits this sextile with Neptune, which presents a chance shed our Capricorn enterprise fits and splash round within the waters of inspiration and instinct.

Cussed Shoots

The Moon in Aries is a pioneer at coronary heart. And this explicit Aries First Quarter Moon (Jan. 17, 2024, 7:52 pm PST) is a pioneer set out on an unforgiving western panorama – not out of a love of journey, however as a result of it’s burned its bridges within the lush, verdant hills of its beginning. Or maybe, as a result of its residence had turn into a dustbowl with no financial alternatives, and the one answer was to hunt alternatives elsewhere.

I obtained on a roll awhile again, watching various fashionable westerns (Information of the World, the Energy of the Canine, Godless) depicting a lawless nineteenth century American west that was no place in any respect for the light, sort, or weak. I see echoes of those tales within the Aries First Quarter Moon, sq. the pitiless mixture of the Solar and Pluto in Capricorn. We’re coming into rugged terrain, the primary vital chapter within the lunar section story that started on the final Aries New Moon (April 19, 2023), a dramatic Photo voltaic Eclipse sq. Pluto.

It’s a tricky mixture, Aries and Capricorn; Mars, the brutal warrior planet, is the ruler of 1 and exalted within the different, and that just about tells us what we have to find out about its temperament.

Nevertheless it’s a brave and decided mixture as properly. Each time we discover ourselves on a tough highway, beset by hazard, these two indicators serve us properly. Neither will hand over, give in, or be denied their goal. So, what was the hunt you set your wagon to again in April? Possibly you don’t keep in mind, or possibly it wasn’t even a aware resolution; New Moons are darkish instances, in any case. Generally we don’t understand what we planted on the New Moon till the First Quarter shines a light-weight on the primary tiny, cussed shoots rising on the dusty plain.


With the intention to pursue happiness, we’ve got to create a life that helps that pursuit. This implies saying no to issues that don’t assist our targets, in favor of constructing methods that reinforce our desired end result. And it means making guarantees to ourselves that we refuse to interrupt.

If what we wish is a life that gives choices, flexibility, and freedom, we’d like look no additional than this week’s Mercury sextile to Saturn (Jan. 18, 2024, 00:49 am PST) and trine to Jupiter (Jan. 19, 2024, 1:31 am PST). Our guarantees to ourselves, our exhausting work, and our expertise are opening doorways to the proper of future, and this week we could entice the discover of the very individuals who may also help us stroll via these doorways.

Sort Untruths and Flat-Out Deception

Esteemed astrologer Steven Forrest as soon as stated that, “we get married, after which set to work educating one another easy methods to lie.” That’s keenly noticed, and it has the sting of fact. Nevertheless it’s tough to take care of unvarnished candor on a 24-hour foundation, and in a long-term relationship, untruths are typically sort. A little bit gentleness lets affection endure.

However there are sort untruths (“No, that gown doesn’t make you look fats”) after which there may be flat-out deception. And as Venus squares Neptune (Jan 19, 2024, 7:49 am PST), we are able to get an excellent take a look at what’s actually occurring – in relationships, with cash, in the best way we worth ourselves – and the place we go from right here.
