Jupiter back to Pisces: Intuition as Primary Compass

On October 28, 01:10 AM ET, retrograde Jupiter comes back to its traditional domicile of Pisces after transiting Aries since May 10, 2022. This is a time to acknowledge how our beliefs are changing and align with the truth that has been emerging, trusting our intuition as our primary compass instead of relying on external ideologies, philosophies, or systems of knowledge.

Jupiter stations direct on November 23 and is going to remain in Pisces until December 20, when it completes its journey through the sign of the Fish. Jupiter first entered Pisces in May 2021, remained there until July 2021, and entered the sign again in December 2021. We are now experiencing the last transit of Jupiter through Pisces until 2033.

 

Jupiter in Pisces: Exploring the Transcendental Dimension of Life

 

Jupiter, the Lord of Abundance, the largest planet of the Solar System, is associated with our quest for truth and for the meaning of life, with our desire to see and experience things from a higher perspective. The traditional ruler of both Sagittarius and Pisces, Jupiter correlates to our system of beliefs, to knowledge coming from direct and intuitive experience, to generosity and optimism, and to our ability to find the lesson in each and every situation we encounter. This planet expands whatever it touches, and always aims for more.

Pisces, the last archetype of the Zodiac, has to do with the dissolution of the sense of separate self that formed through the previous eleven signs. When planets transit here, there is a feeling of closure and culmination, as well as a release of energy and information that can now be used in favor of the collective. Pisces correlates to mass phenomena, to the collective emotional body, and to our connection to it. For this reason, what happens in the world and around us impacts us more powerfully when this sign is prominent. Both Pisces and its modern ruler Neptune remind us of the link between us all, of the unity of all that exists, as from a higher, universal perspective there is no duality, no separation.

Jupiter is comfortable in Pisces, where it expresses its most transcendental qualities. While Jupiter travels through its ancient domicile, it supports our desire to deepen our relationship to our intuition and explore a variety of philosophies, cosmologies, traditions, and belief systems that acknowledge the spiritual dimension of life.

 

Jupiter retrograde in Pisces: Time of Revision and Resolution

 

When Jupiter is retrograde, it promotes a process of revision and reassessment of our beliefs and worldviews. It inspires us to question what authenticity means to us, whether we are being fully transparent, what our truth is, and how we are honoring it. During this time, there may be relevant changes in our perspectives, perceptions, and overall beliefs. If we have been ungrounded or excessively relying on fantasy or illusions, the fog may dissolve and clear out, leaving space for Truth to emerge and manifest.

jupiter back in pisces

The last months of Jupiter’s transit through Pisces give us a chance to review, reassess, find closure and resolution for issues that presented themselves around April and May 2022, while Jupiter transited over the last few degrees of the sign for the first time. This is a good moment to reflect on what we were going through, revisit what we wrote in our journals back then, and pay attention to any repeating patterns and situations that come up these upcoming days and weeks.

Jupiter is going to station direct at 28º of Pisces on November 23, simultaneously with the upcoming New Moon in Sagittarius, which it rules. At that time, Neptune is going to be at 22º of Pisces, and still in retrograde motion. Their conjunction won’t be exact again, however, the two planets will be close enough for their alignment to be felt. Themes that first emerged in April, when the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction took place, are likely to resurface during the entire time Jupiter remains in Pisces. A clearer understanding of what took place back then could emerge, as when Piscean energy is strong it can generate feelings of confusion and disorientation, and the process we go through is often much easier to understand in hindsight.

 

Jupiter back to Pisces: Intuition as Primary Compass

 

While Jupiter is in Pisces, our idealism is maximized and so are our generosity, our willingness to serve, and our desire to do something good for other people and the world at large. Our dreams and visions become enriched and expanded by this transit, which inspires us to dream big, believe in positive outcomes, and trust Life more. Looking at the world through rose-colored glasses and lacking discernment can be risks associated with Jupiter’s journey through Pisces, which could deliver some of its lessons through experiences of disenchantment and disillusionment.

This transit inspires us to ponder on how we can serve the collective, what is needed from us at this time, and what we are able to give and offer. Jupiter coming back to its ancient domicile represents an invitation to pursue experiences that support our connection to the whole creation, allowing us to expand our perceptive capacities and transcend the limitations of the human experience.

Jupiter in Pisces supports our capacity to surrender and be open to what we encounter on our path, trusting that it is exactly what we need to learn at this particular time. It is an opportunity to release our attachment to beliefs, philosophies, and cosmologies that don’t serve us any longer, deepen our relationship with our intuition, and trust it as our primary guidance system.

Venus in Libra: the Value of Connection

On September 29, 03:49 AM ET, Venus leaves Virgo and enters Libra, her Air domicile, where she remains until October 23. This shift is beneficial for our love and romantic life: it inspires us to recognize the value of connection and to reflect on what balance and harmony mean to us.

While Venus travels through the sign of the Scales, we have an opportunity to get to know ourselves more deeply through the mirror of our relationships. During this transit, we value being surrounded by harmony, peace, and beauty, and we strive to cultivate connections based on equality.

 

Venus in Libra: Valuing Relationships as Learning Opportunities

 

Venus’s journey through Virgo has been stressing the importance of discernment while promoting a rather self-contained and pragmatic approach to relationships. Venus entering Libra underlines the value of our connections to other people as a gateway to deeper self-awareness and self-knowledge. As Libra is an Air sign, this shift indicates a more experimental and curious attitude and increased openness to different kinds of social scenarios.

When Venus is in the sign of the Scales, we feel drawn to explore a variety of settings and contexts in order to better understand who we are and who we are not, what we want and what we do not want, what we enjoy and what we don’t, what we value and what others value.

Venus in Libra

Venus in Libra seduces through intellect, wit, and charm. She expresses herself gracefully and elegantly and has a natural, intuitive understanding of the needs and desires of others. This transit is favorable for all artistic and creative pursuits and inspires us to value the role of other people in our lives, the learning that comes from participating in relationships, the process of beautifying our environment, and the journey of establishing adjustments that allow us to be in harmony with our surroundings.

 

Venus opposite Jupiter & Chiron, Venus trine Saturn

 

During her transit through Libra, Venus is going to align with several planets. Throughout the upcoming weeks, Venus opposes retrograde Jupiter and Chiron in Aries, trines retrograde Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini, squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, and ultimately joins the Sun in Libra. Venus opposes Jupiter on October 1 and Chiron on October 10.

The opposition of Venus and Jupiter indicates an expansive and generous feeling, together with a desire to widen our social circles, make new experiences, and indulge in life’s pleasures. These days, we may find it challenging to balance alone time with social time and manifest an inclination to spend money impulsively in the pursuit of excitement and stimulation.

The Venus-Chiron opposition invites us to look at how the people in our lives may reflect back at us our own wounds, allowing us to understand something about ourselves that wasn’t fully clear before. This aspect could illuminate relationship dynamics and imbalances we need to address, helping us break free from disempowering beliefs about our self-worth, address low self-esteem issues, and work on the consequent inability to receive and accept love from others.

On October 14, Venus trines Saturn in Aquarius, inspiring us to value commitment, consistency, and reliability in relationships. At this time, we may feel drawn to make important financial decisions, particularly in terms of long-term investments or saving plans, and we are likely to be more considerate with our way of spending and investing money or other resources. These days, we may feel a need to consolidate relationships and partnerships or establish clearer boundaries. 

 

Venus trine Mars & Venus square Pluto

 

On October 19, Venus aligns with Mars in Gemini in a harmonic trine. When the two relationship planets are in a harmonious connection, it is easier to balance our needs, desires, and values, with the needs, desires, and values of others. As this alignment is happening in Air signs, this Venus-Mars trine marks a favorable time to work on communication dynamics, discover creative win-win solutions, make new connections, and familiarize ourselves with a variety of social settings.

Shortly after, on October 20, Venus perfects her square to retrograde Pluto in the last degrees of Capricorn. This is a tense alignment that is likely to be felt strongly a few days before and after the square goes exact. Venus-Pluto aspects intensify our experience of relationships and increase our need for passion, depth, and all-consuming exchanges. Power and manipulation dynamics, obsessive fantasies, and a need to control other people could emerge or be exacerbated. When Venus squares Pluto, we crave to consume and be consumed by our experiences, yet we are simultaneously afraid of losing ourselves in the fires of passion: for this reason, push-pull dynamics and manipulation attempts could manifest.

 

Venus Starpoint in Libra 2022: New Awareness of Relationships

 

Towards the end of her journey through Libra, on October 22, Venus is going to join the Sun at 29º26’ of the sign of the Scales. This alignment is also technically referred to as Superior Conjunction, and it marks a shift in the relationship between Venus, the Sun, and the Earth, as from now on Venus becomes an Evening Star. Astrologer Arielle Guttman denominated the Venus-Sun conjunction phenomenon Venus Star Point and studied in detail the Venus cycle and the resulting geometry.

The last Venus-Sun conjunction was in Capricorn on January 8, 2022, while Venus was in retrograde motion, and began the current Venus cycle. This superior conjunction begins the second half of the Venus cycle and has a similar energy to a Full Moon as it brings revelations, clarity, and a new understanding of our relationship experiences. Experiencing a Venus-Sun conjunction in Libra brings the spotlight on the importance of working on refining the balance in our lives and our connections, marking a turning point in our awareness of relationship dynamics, as well as in our understanding of what harmony is and what harmony is not.

Venus in Libra

The fact that the Venus-Sun conjunction is happening on the last degree of Libra, the 29º, is also particularly significant as the so-called anaretic degree indicates we are navigating a time of completion, fulfillment, closure, and resolution of karma.

 

Venus enters Libra: the Value of Connection

 

While Venus is in Libra, we value the journey of being in relationships and we value being surrounded by pleasant, beautiful, and harmonious environments. However, during the upcoming weeks, we have to be wary of not mistaking a superficial, inauthentic sense of peace and harmony with a real one. One of the risks of this transit could be settling for a false harmony in order to avoid conflict, confrontation, or uncomfortable truths. 

Venus’s journey through Libra invites us to notice whether we tend to abandon ourselves, our desires, and our needs to please others or make them happy, or whether we attach our self-esteem and self-worth to what we do for others or to their opinion of us. This transit reminds us of the value of connecting with others in authentic and truthful ways, invites us to recognize where we are out of balance, and encourages us to further our self-awareness by navigating exchanges more consciously.

Mercury enters Virgo: Pragmatic Thinking

On August 4, 02:58 AM ET, Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, its Earth domicile. This shift invites pragmatic thinking, adding practicality to our mental processes, supporting self-analysis, and fueling a desire to improve and optimize our inner and outer realities.

Mercury is leaving Virgo on August 25. However, due to its upcoming retrograde, beginning in Libra on September 10, it is going to be back in Virgo from September 23 to October 10.

 

Mercury in Virgo: Efficiency, Pragmatism, and Discernment

 

Mercury is the planet associated with our communication, learning, and thinking styles. It is connected with transportation, commerce, and short-distance travel and has to do with our way to perceive and relate to our environment, with our way of solving problems, and with how we deal with everyday tasks. 

Virgo correlates with themes of self-improvement and self-analysis, as through this sign we explore humility and learn to be of service. At this stage of evolution, we become aware of the importance of good habits and routines that generate optimal functionality and allow us to explore how to take the best care of our health in a holistic sense.

Mercury in virgo

In Astrology, Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo, which is traditionally considered to be both the domicile and exaltation of the planet. This means that Mercury can function very efficiently in the sign of the Maiden. While Gemini is associated with the process of accumulation and gathering of data that allows us to logically understand our reality, Virgo correlates with the Yin side of the planet and its discernment function, which allows us to discriminate what information is most useful and relevant at any time, what can have practical applications, and how we can be of service through our knowledge. 

In Virgo, Mercury operates with clarity and focus: it reflects a pragmatic and analytical approach to reality and a tendency to think critically. Our attention goes to details and nuances, our vision is sharp, we strive for perfection and efficiency in all we do, and we are naturally drawn to optimize our habitual ways of doing things. Mercury in Virgo promotes grounded self-analysis and a desire for self-improvement, as this combination of energies inspires us to focus on what does not work optimally. However, for this same reason, it can indicate a tendency to be more critical than usual of both ourselves and others.

 

Mercury in aspect to Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto

 

During its transit through Virgo, Mercury will trine Uranus in Taurus, oppose Neptune in Pisces, and trine Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury aligns with Uranus in a beneficial trine on August 16. This aspect increases our visionary capacity, innovative potential, and intellectual creativity, catalyzing a surge of original ideas and a natural attunement to out-of-the-box thinking. New insights, downloads, and creative solutions are likely to emerge spontaneously these days.

On August 21, Mercury perfects its opposition to Neptune in Pisces. This alignment favors non-linear and intuitive processes and may complicate logical and analytical tasks, possibly generating a sense of confusion and difficulties focusing for long periods of time. The Mercury-Neptune alignment could come with some forgetfulness and brain fog, nonetheless, it will nurture and enhance our fantasy life and our imaginative skills.

On August 22, Mercury forms an exact trine to Pluto in Capricorn that, together with the Mercury-Neptune opposition, will strongly increase our sensitivity to the emotional tones and energetic undercurrents of the environments we are in. The Mercury-Pluto trine indicates a penetrative and investigative mind, an inclination to focus on what is unspoken and to try to uncover the root causes of our experiences and perceptions. This aspect is very favorable for therapeutic work aimed at transforming our psychology and changing habitual thinking patterns.

 

Mercury in Virgo: Self-Improvement and Practical Service

 

Mercury in Virgo will support our capacity to solve problems and be systematic and organized, inspiring us to think practically, and improve what can be more efficient. This transit will encourage us to discern more carefully how we invest our energy, attention, and focus, reminding us of how valuable they are. On the downside, it may be tempting to adopt an excessively skeptical and cynical perception of reality, as excessive rationality and pragmatism could lead to a pessimistic mindset. 

Something to be mindful of during this transit is a tendency for extreme perfectionism, overthinking, and obsession with details, which has the potential to hold us back from progressing. We may lose sight of the big picture and feel we are never ready, never good enough to take the next step or get to the next level, and forget how, very often, we learn the most by making mistakes.

The upcoming weeks will offer us chances to improve our daily organization, modify our habits, and introduce more structure into our routines. Mercury in Virgo inspires us to explore how to apply what we have learned in practical, useful ways that allow us to be of service, explore new solutions to problems, and improve ourselves and our reality.

New Moon in Aries, April 2022: Path to Self

On April 1, 02:24 AM ET, we experience a New Moon at 11º30’ of Aries, the first one of the Astrological Year, bringing potent energy of beginning and renewal. This New Moon is conjunct asteroid Chiron and represents an initiation in our healing journey, a new chapter on our path to discovering and expressing our true Self. 

The Moon has been slowly disappearing from the night sky for the past two weeks. During the upcoming days, she will soon start to be visible again. New Moons are new beginnings: the Moon aligns with the Sun on the same degree of the same Zodiac sign and initiates the lunar cycle. These cosmic events represent a moment to turn inwards and reflect on what seeds we want to plant, what intentions we desire to set.

The two weeks following the Full Moon are a time to release our efforts, let go of old intentions, and slow down. After the New Moon takes place, the momentum grows: the upcoming fourteen days are a time to take action and see where our instinct takes us.

To celebrate the arrival of this New Moon in Aries, on April 1 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live New Moon in Aries Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Moon in Aries: Need for Freedom, Passion, & Excitement

 

The Moon in Aries has playful, impulsive, creative, and passionate energy. In the sign of the Warrior, the main emotional need is to be in motion and to spontaneously explore the desires and feelings that arise on a moment-to-moment basis. 

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac: it is a sign that lacks experience and needs lots of freedom to discover what life can offer. When the Moon is here, we feel safe when we are free to express ourselves as we desire and have enough space to take courageous leaps of faith. We deal with our emotions independently and express them as they arise, typically without forethought. 

To get your April Horoscope simply tap here. Enjoy!

If a Moon in Aries is making challenging aspects, the spontaneous emotional expression and the assertion of our needs and desires tends to be held back by self-consciousness, shame, and lack of confidence in the validity of our instinctual urges.

Anger, resentment, and frustration accumulate and can explode inappropriately as there tends to be low tolerance for distress and discomfort. When the Moon is traveling through the sign of the Ram, it is crucial to keep the energy moving and explore constructive and creative ways to give space to our impulses and feelings. 

 

New Moon conjunct Chiron: New Beginning in our Healing Journey

 

This New Moon will feel different than a typical Aries New Moon, as it is tightly conjunct Chiron and Mercury. The conjunction between Sun, Moon, and Chiron is likely to be felt particularly intensely.

Chiron is an asteroid representing our capacity to heal and alchemize pain by going through it and confronting what we are afraid to face. It correlates with feelings of rejection, alienation, emotional wounds, but also with our capacity to feel and soothe the pain of others thanks to the connection we have developed with our own pain.

Chiron is placed in the asteroid belt, between Saturn and Uranus, and some Astrologers consider it to be the key to our individuation process. Saturn has to do with our conditioning, while Uranus is about deconditioning: Chiron being in between them represents the bridge that helps us shed layers and become closer to who we are. The astrological glyph of Chiron is a key, and Chironic processes open doors to dimensions of self that had been hidden, buried, repressed, forgotten. The path, however, is not easy: Chiron cracks us open and invites us to remain open even if it hurts. 

 

New Moon conjunct Chiron & Mercury: Journey into the Subconscious

 

The Aries New Moon may give us chances to face feelings of being rejected or misunderstood for expressing our individuality and asserting ourselves. The triggers that emerge around this time can give us information relative to something we need to work on to embody our full, uncensored, spontaneous expression. Chiron’s transit through Aries invites us to confront fears and wounds around self-assertion, repressed anger, and feelings of not having the right to exist and take space.

Mercury is also conjunct Sun, Moon, and Chiron. For this reason, writing, journaling, vlogging, having long conversations with trusted friends or with a therapist are likely to be helpful ways to process emotions and elaborate on what we are feeling and experiencing.

In mythology, Mercury is considered to be a psychopomp, who has the task of guiding souls to the underworld and is the only one allowed to travel in between the realms of the living and the world of the dead. On this New Moon, the Messenger will help us make sense of what is taking place in our inner and outer reality, and guide us on our journey into our subconscious and our emotional world.

 

The Venus, Saturn, Mars conjunction in Aquarius

 

Mars is the ruler of the Aries New Moon. Its condition is giving us more information about how the current planetary configuration is unfolding and manifesting. Mars is now in Aquarius, which is about free, independent thinking. It is about moving away from the mainstream, making our own choices, and feeling confident walking in a direction that is different from the one the crowd is taking. In this sign, the ruler of Aries expresses its energy in an experimental, rebellious, and innovative way: the potential for creative breakthroughs is high.

Mars is approaching a conjunction with Saturn, which will go exact on April 4. Venus is also in Aquarius, separating from both Mars and Saturn, but still close to both. The Mars-Saturn conjunction is likely to show up very prominently these days. This aspect indicates a tendency to act in a rigid and authoritarian way. Fear of losing control could result in repressing our desires and not allowing our urges to express spontaneously. Positively, Mars conjunct Saturn supports our determination, willpower, and self-motivation. Their alignment inspires us to be the authority of our lives and to take responsibility to take action in the direction of our goals.

 

Venus, Saturn, & Mars square the Nodes: Reintegrating Forgotten Parts

 

Venus, Saturn, and Mars are all squaring the Lunar Nodes in Taurus and Scorpio. This configuration signals unresolved issues coming to light, particularly around self-worth, self-value, intimacy, sexuality, partnership, authorities, responsibilities, and commitments. The emphasis on the sign of Aquarius highlights the need for objectivity and invites us to take responsibility for how we are managing our energy and our emotions.

new moon in aries

Planet squaring the Nodes can’t move either backward or forward: they point to the necessity of re-examining our relationship with the energies involved. With three celestial bodies squaring the Nodes, karmic encounters, twists of fate, and events are a strong possibility: we may have the opportunity to find a resolution to something we haven’t fully reconciled with. To move forward, we sometimes need to stop and take a step back to reintegrate fragments of ourselves we lost or forgot along the way. 

 

Predominance of Conjunctions

 

As the New Moon takes place, Jupiter is approaching Neptune in Pisces: their conjunction is perfecting on April 12, and it is already active, indicating a desire for spiritual growth, expansion of consciousness, strong idealism, and a tendency to see the highest potential of everything and everyone. Currently, there are three main clusters of planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Chiron are in Aries, Mars, Venus, and Saturn in Aquarius, while Jupiter and Neptune are in Pisces. Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn aren’t aspecting any other planet. 

The conjunction, indicating the merging of the energies of the celestial bodies involved, is the most prominent aspect. Conjunctions always imply a degree of unconsciousness, because when planets are so close together they can’t see each other. As there is no communication between the three clusters of planets, right now it may be difficult to see clearly what we are going through and the purpose of what’s happening.

New Moon in Aries: Path to Self

 

The upcoming lunar cycle will offer us plenty of opportunities for healing, emotional maturation, spiritual and psychological growth. The Aries New Moon is an opportunity to acknowledge where we are on our path, what direction we desire to go towards, and what we need to work on. 

This event marks a new beginning in the way we relate with our instinct, in the way we assert ourselves, and in how we deal with feelings of rejection. It invites us to embody our individuality and reclaim our right to take space. 

The activation of Chiron may show us where we are still playing small, where we are ashamed of expressing ourselves, where we mistrust our instinctual urges, and where we are not fully honoring the energy meant to be expressed through us. It may bring up the need for a deep self-reinvention and redefinition, to get closer to our true essence.

Full Worm Moon in Virgo: Harmonizing Chaos and Order

On March 18, 03:17 AM ET, we witness an enchanting Full Worm Moon at 27°39’ of Virgo. This lunation marks the culmination of a chapter in our healing journey. It represents an invitation to harmonize chaos and order, and balance reliance on practicality and logic with trust in Life and in our intuition.

When the Moon is Full, the light of the Sun illuminates our inner world and we can see more clearly our subconscious material. Full Moons represent the maturation and peak point of the lunar cycle, where the results of our efforts are manifested and we have the opportunity to reap the fruits of our labor. 

The Full Moon taking place during March is also popularly referred to as the Worm Moon. This name is due to the fact that, at this time of the year and in the Northern hemisphere of the globe, the first worms begin to emerge from the ground, signaling the imminent arrival of Spring and warm weather. Worms, a symbol of resilience and regeneration, remind us of the value of small but consistent effort, inviting us to be patient and accept Nature’s timing.

To celebrate the arrival of Full Moon in Virgo, on January 17 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live Full Moon in Virgo Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Full Moons: Revelations, Culminations, and Letting Go

 

Full Moons are times of revelations that offer us chances to gain more self-awareness. From now on and during the second half of the lunar month, we begin to let go of the intentions we set on the New Moon and the energy invites us to release and slow down.

When the Moon is Full, it always implies an opposition, an exact 180º alignment, with the Sun. This time, the Moon in Virgo is also in opposition to Neptune, in its home sign of Pisces and conjunct the Sun. The involvement of Neptune adds a strong Piscean quality to this lunation, which will bring up the need to find harmony between discipline and flow, effort and surrender.

full moon in virgo

Oppositions always remind us of the importance of balancing polarities. These aspects reflect a tendency to gravitate towards one side of a spectrum and then towards the opposite one after we have reached an extreme. Planets opposing each other often generate pendulum swing dynamics that lead us to explore two opposite ways of being before settling in the middle.

 

The Virgo-Pisces polarity: Spirituality and Embodiment

 

The current Full Moon highlights the need to balance how we express the opposite and complementary archetypes of Virgo and Pisces. Virgo is inherently analytical, logical, and practical, while Pisces is intuitive, emotional, and imaginative. Pisces is associated with chaos and with all those forces beyond our control. Virgo instead is trying to find order in life and discover a logical thread that connects all parts of the whole. 

fm

Despite popular belief, Virgo and Pisces are both spiritual signs. While Pisces seeks to transcend the human experience and explore other realms and dimensions, Virgo aims to experience the Divine within the mundane and through a deeper physical embodiment. Virgo reminds us that we can practice mindfulness every day: we don’t need to be in a monastery to live according to spiritual principles and values. While Pisces teaches us to surrender control to access states that promote the deepening of our perception of reality, Virgo reminds us of the value of devotion to daily routines, practices, and habits that support and strengthen our connection with the Divine. 

 

Full Moon opposite Neptune: Increased Sensitivity and Distorted Perceptions

 

The Moon in Virgo indicates a need for order, rationality, and predictability. During this transit, we aim to create the optimal conditions for us to feel comfortable navigating life. However, with the Moon opposing Neptune and the Sun in Pisces, this is unlikely to happen: we may have experiences that we can’t control, that force us to change our plans, or that we can’t fully understand through logic and rationality. These days, our perceptions may be distorted by our emotions and our increased sensitivity. 

full moon in virgo

The Moon opposite Neptune and, more loosely, Jupiter, indicates the need to relate with our empathy consciously, and practice discernment relative to what we take in, how much we give, and what we allow to affect us. We will be more sensitive than usual, wide open to the energies surrounding us. For this reason, we have to set proper boundaries and manage our empathy wisely, choosing carefully what we are available for and what we are not available for. 

With this aspect, we may tend to see other people’s potential instead of their reality and bypass our feelings and our boundaries in the process. We may also feel more tired and lethargic than usual, and there is a danger of excessive passivity, of going with the flow without taking action and avoiding responsibilities. This is a good opportunity to notice which experiences, people, and situations drain us and which ones, instead, energize us. We have an opportunity to learn to better manage our sensitivity and avoid being swept away by our feelings. 

 

Full Moon trine Pluto: Emotional Power

 

The Moon in Virgo is in a harmonic trine to Pluto in Capricorn. This is a supportive aspect that sharpens our intuition and our capacity to follow our gut instincts. As their alignment is happening in Earth signs, it adds some practicality and pragmatism to the current astrological configuration, pairing sensitivity with discernment and self-trust.

The Moon-Pluto trine will help us confront feelings and emotions that we might have been afraid to face. It will increase our capacity to psychologically understand ourselves and others and see our and their core intentions and motivations. This is an aspect of healing, purification, and renewal: the Virgo Full Moon is a favorable moment to let go of uncomfortable feelings, resentments, and grudges. The trine to Pluto promotes a constructive transformation of habitual behavioral patterns and of the way we deal with our emotions. It will support the awareness that, if we are going through some sort of emotional pain, it will help us grow stronger and wiser. 

 

Mars and Venus square Uranus: Rebellious Streak

 

As the Full Moon is taking place, Mars and Venus are in Aquarius and they are both approaching a square aspect to Uranus in Taurus. Venus perfects the square tomorrow, while the Mars square goes exact on March 22. These aspects will add some dynamism and action into our life, especially in our relationships. Uranus wants things to remain interesting: if there is something stagnant in our life, it could very well change. During the upcoming days, a strong desire for adventure, excitement, and freedom is likely to arise and it may generate out of the blue, unexpected behaviors, and sudden shifts in our plans. 

Unusual encounters, unpredictable events, and eccentric desires may catalyze impulsive and disruptive actions. Mars square Uranus indicates a rebellious streak, an inclination to disobey, and a lack of trust in authorities and institutions. Venus square Uranus signals a strong need for space and independence. A change in values could possibly bring a desire to experiment with alternative styles of relationships, or we may begin to relate with people completely different from us and from those we habitually hang out with.

Full Moon in Virgo: Being Compassionate Yet Discerning

 

Four planets are transiting Pisces right now and Mercury, the ruler of the Virgo Moon, is also there, where it is traditionally considered debilitated. In Pisces, the logical, practical, analytical qualities of Mercury aren’t enhanced, and the focus is instead on the development of the intuitive, the sensitive, and the imaginative

These days, we may struggle to keep up with our schedule, responsibilities, and duties, and find it challenging to organize ourselves effectively. Life may seem to be too chaotic and irrational and we may not manage to structure our days in the way our mind thinks would be best for us. Even though this could represent a source of frustration, it could also stimulate our creativity and inspire us to make positive changes. Mercury’s sextile to Uranus in Taurus could catalyze the emergence of innovative ideas, downloads, and insights that do have a practical application.

fm

During these days, we are finding a balance between excessively relying on logic and practicality and excessively trusting our feelings. We are learning to see situations and people as they are, and not as we would like them to be. We are flowing with life and learning to trust it, yet without relying uniquely on hope, luck, and wishful thinking to get by. We are learning to be compassionate, yet discerning.

2/22/22 Gateway – Manifestation, Healing & Breakthroughs

2/22/22 portal of divine manifestation, magical synchronicities, spiritual healing, breakthroughs, clarity and angelic support is open!

This month, we experience three major 222 dates, 2/2/22, 2/20/22, and 2/22/22. Each sequence is magical, but by far, the 2/22/22 sequence stands out the most, as it contains the energy of Master Number 22, and the manifesting power of Angel number 22222.

Use this time to manifest your visions, dream relationship, partnership, self-love and self-healing routines. 02/22/22 is a day of emotional and spiritual healing, karma cleansing, manifesting and rebuilding.

This is a rare once in a lifetime moment for humanity. There will not be another 222 sequence until 2/2/2222. Turn up your manifesting and let the Universe shower you with divine blessings!

 

The Significance and Power of 22222 in Numerology

 

Every number has a unique essence. You can think of this essence as each number’s personality. Number one is assertive and independent; number two is patient and attentive; number three is expressive and curious, and so on. However, anytime a number is repeated, the energy is amplified. This is the case with 22222.

Number two is connected to partnership, healing, building and cooperation. Two is the number of patience, modesty, and duality. Wherever the number two shows up is where you are seeking to establish more balance and alignment.

As an Angel and repeated number, 22222 represents divine timing. It is a message from your guides that you are on the right path and you will find the right people, but in order to do that, you have to listen to your higher emotions and thoughts.

In its shadow, 22222 is a reminder that every dream requires patience, cooperation, and work. If you’ve been struggling with feeling seen, heard, or accepted, 22222 is a reminder to stay flexible and open to new possibilities, you can attract anything you want.

 

2/22/22: Take Control of your Destiny

 

On February 22, 2022, the last 222 sequence of the 21st century will occur. This awakening moment mirrors the self-defining qualities of Master number 22. This monumental Numerology event breaks open the door to a more fulfilling, sustainable, and aligned future. February 22, 2022 is the day to move forward and stop living in the past.

Out of all the Master numbers, 22 has the potential to be the most successful due to its practical mind and extraordinary self-discipline. Equipped with the insight and spiritual enlightenment established by master number 11, 22 has the potential to manifest any dream into a reality. 22 teaches us how to see our visions clearly in the spiritual realm and how to bring them down into the earthly plane.

2/22/22

You may be wondering how this energy will affect you, and the question is: what big breakthrough are you planning? What partnerships are ready to go to the next level of commitment? What relationships are ready to be released with love? What opportunities are you ready to attract? The magic of 02/22/22 supports you, but you have to take action.

In Numerology, 2 can be a passive number. And when Master Number 22 expresses itself with stagnation and laziness, rather than being a proactive master builder, 22 hides away and idles over its dreams. It struggles with perfectionism and overthinking.

Try not to let your fears talk you into staying in a rut. The challenge of Master number 22 is overcoming its perfectionist tendencies and trusting others to help achieve your goals. This energy is a call to take gradual action instead of rushing and acting impulsive which ultimately leads to burnout.

If feeling emotionally, physically, or spiritually exhausted at this time, find ways to slow down and appreciate the life you are creating. Express gratitude for who you are, where you are, and what you have. Invite joy, harmony, and balance into your life. Learn to live in the present moment.

There are six 2’s in today’s date, together they give 12, and 12 is a number three, magical number, holy trinity, three’s of everything, secret of the Three holy principles hidden in two’s. High frequency codes are vibrating through ether. This marks the culmination and ending of a longer cycle, the one that was active between 2.2.2002 – 22.2.2002. We might feel a lot of pressure because somethings from last 20 years might be involved in these changes and healing process we are going through right now, both individually and collectively.

 

The Astrology of 2/22/22

 

Today, Moon in Scorpio makes a challenging square aspect with the lord of the karma and time, Saturn in Aquarius and this gives us even greater power to release what needs to be released, to remove old fears, to remove old anxieties and to change the taste of our own past in our bodies, our minds and our souls. We will be inspired to put hard work into what we’re passionate about, to invest in long term changes and set ourselves free from traumas that colored our perception through many lifetimes.

Any restriction and challenge is just a springboard towards growth and evolution, and today is that magic day when we can create that quantum leap and jump from one reality into another, from old structures and frames of mind into more stable, more alive, more magical frames of mind and states of being.

2/22/22

Another divine inspired synchronicity we experience today: 2/22/22 portal happens in this same day as U.S. Pluto return, this means that the planet Pluto will be right on the same degree and same sign where it was when U.S. declared independency on the 4th of July 1776. It also happens during the peak cycle of Venus, Mars and Pluto conjunction that will culminate exactly on the 3.03.2022. On this day we will again have the same sum of numbers, again 12 which gives birth to 3. Amplification of these energies are enormous!

During this time we can expect very important messages to be delivered to us, important lessons, key people coming into our lives, key relationships, key conversations. This alignment also shows that we are all just where we should be, where we’re meant to be, everything is well and unfolding and manifesting for our highest good.

 

2/22/22 Invitation

 

February is a month with many changes and opportunities for rejuvenation, so keep dreaming big and paving new paths for your future. May you set intentions and attune to the highest timelines that are being inspired and orchestrated by your higher self during this 02/22/22 gateway.

May the supporting and protecting energies of angel number 22222 and creative manifesting energies of master builder number 22 be with you and help you in healing, bring you clarity and inspire you to consistently, consciously and courageously walk in the direction of your dreams by living and enjoying in the present moment.

Mars enters Capricorn: Mastering our Will

On January 24, 7:53 AM ET, Mars leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn. Mars will remain in the sign of the Sea Goat until March 6, when it will enter Aquarius simultaneously with Venus.

In Capricorn, Mars expresses its qualities in a structured and practical way. This combination of energies supports self-motivation and self-determination. As a Cardinal Earth archetype, Capricorn is the master builder: with Mars here, we want to manifest something tangible with our life force, and we don’t like wasting time. The upcoming transit will inspire us to strive for efficiency and excellence and aim to create something solid, valuable, and long-lasting.

 

Mars enters Capricorn: Commitment to Self-Mastery

 

The transit of Mars in Sagittarius corresponds to a tendency to channel our energy and drive in a multitude of directions. During this transit, we want to gain more experience, expand our philosophical understanding of life, and explore all of our desires, no matter how contradictory they are. 

Mars entering Capricorn marks a clear shift: we now desire to structure the wisdom and the experience we have gained and channel our life force in a specific direction. We aim to build something that will stand the test of time and we are ready to remove all obstacles on our path. With Mars in Capricorn, we strive to achieve self-mastery and learn to direct our will consciously. 

Mars enters Capricorn

Both Mars and Capricorn are Cardinal archetypes of initiation: this transit is a good moment to start committing to something, set goals, and begin new paths. We have an opportunity to structure our intentions and plans, define a clear strategy, and gain mastery over how we spend time and channel our energy. 

 

Exploring our Idea of Success

 

During the upcoming weeks, we may ask ourselves what we want to work hard for, what is worth our time and efforts. Capricorn reminds us not to be in a hurry, that good things take time, that there’s no need to rush the process. Mars in Capricorn reflects a stoic, disciplined, and hardworking attitude. During this transit, it is important to make sure that we are not being too hard on ourselves, that we are taking care of our emotional needs and not only of practical ones.

We have a chance to consider the true motivations behind our desires, and to contemplate whether our idea of success is truly ours, or it has been affected and distorted by the conditioning and programming we have been exposed to. We may realize if we are defining our success and achievements with external metrics and decide to align with different ones. 

 

Mars conjunct Venus: New Ways of Being in Relationship

 

During its journey through Capricorn, Mars will conjunct Venus. Exceptionally, there will be two Mars-Venus conjunctions in less than a month due to Venus’ reduced speed after its retrograde period. The first one will happen in Capricorn on February 16, the same day of the Full Moon in Leo, and the second one will be on 0° of Aquarius, on March 6. 

The Venus-Mars conjunction in Capricorn indicates the importance of aligning our relationship choices and the way we invest our energy with our values and long-term intentions. The days before the exact aspect, we may feel an urge to detach from people, lifestyles, and ways of spending time that don’t add value to our lives. The conjunction marks a need for experimentation and discovery of new ways of being in relationships. These will, however, be soon reassessed as the two planets meet again in Aquarius a few weeks later.

 

Mars square Chiron, trine Uranus, & sextile Neptune

 

On February 4, Mars squares Chiron, now transiting in Mars’ domicile of Aries. Their alignment brings up conflicts centered around self-assertion and self-repression and highlights any tendency to hold back what is instinctual or spontaneous due to fear or insecurity. Mars-Chiron aspects invite us to heal wounds linked to our relationship with masculine energy, particularly correlated to expectations of rejection when we take initiative.

On February 6, Mars trines Uranus in Taurus: this is a supportive alignment that could inspire us to act in original and unusual ways. As both planets are traveling through Earth signs, we may have unexpected work opportunities, possibilities to make an income, or chances to create something eccentric and futuristic by blending tradition and innovation.

Mars enters Capricorn

Mars forms a sextile to Neptune in Pisces on February 23, an aspect of opportunities that will give us possibilities to act in alignment with our ideals and dreams. It could inspire us to reassess our boundaries and redefine what we are available to invest our time and energy in.

 

Mars conjunct Pluto: Power and Rage

 

Mars joins Pluto on March 3, fueling a process of purification of our will and intentions that encourages us to align the desires of our ego with our Soul’s desires. The Mars-Pluto conjunction promotes a profound inquiry on what is truly moving us and invites us to come into contact with the root of our anger, of our ambition, of our wanting. 

This aspect gives us opportunities to understand what’s beneath our cravings, what our unconscious intentions and motivations are. By exploring our rage, we have a chance to liberate a huge amount of power that can be used as fuel to move forward and improve our lives or can be extremely destructive. 

Mars enters Capricorn

The upcoming Mars-Pluto conjunction is the last one in Capricorn for about 250 years. This alignment closes a long cycle of deep, radical transformation. Mars joining Pluto will give us the strength to break free from old structures, let go of past intentions and desires, and create space to discover new ones.

 

Mars enters Capricorn: Striving for Self-Mastery

 

While Mars is in the sign of the Sea Goat, we tend to proceed cautiously. Our insecurities may generate some amount of self-repression, a tendency to conceal our emotions, and a general distrust of our instinct and impulses. Fear of failure, of wasting time, and of losing control may arise. During this time, we may take care not to cut ourselves off from our feelings and needs in order to work more or get faster results. 

While this transit fuels a desire for tangible, concrete achievements, it is important to strive to balance between work and rest and not push ourselves excessively hard. We have an opportunity to achieve a new level of self-mastery rooted in self-knowledge and self-respect, that doesn’t involve denying our humanness or detaching from our emotions in order to achieve more.

Aquarius Season 2022: Dare to Be Yourself

On January 19, 9:39 PM ET, the Sun leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius. Aquarius season 2022 begins only a few hours after Uranus, the modern ruler of the sign, has stationed direct, an event that magnifies the emphasis on this archetype.

The Sun will remain in the sign of the Water Bearer until February 18: until then, we have a chance to dare to be ourselves, dare to be different from the norm. This time of the year is a moment to leave space to our eccentricity and explore new ways of expressing ourselves, new ways of thinking and living, and new ways of being in community.

 

The Aquarius Archetype & Individuation

 

Wherever the Sun transits, our awareness goes. Aquarius season brings up the urge to rebel from constrictions, break unnecessary or oppressive rules, and detach from ways of expressing ourselves that don’t feel true or authentic.

In the Zodiac Wheel, Aquarius comes after Capricorn, the sign connected with the process of crystallization of structures, forms, and conditions. Aquarius is the natural, opposite reaction of wanting to liberate ourselves from existing structures, rules, and norms that don’t feel right any longer, that keep us trapped in the past, and don’t support progress and advancement.

aquarius season 2022

This is the maverick of the Zodiac, the genius and the rebel, the eccentric, the original, the one who stands out from the crowd. Aquarius and its modern ruler Uranus correlate with the processes of individuation and deconditioning. They lead us on the journey of removing the layers that cover our purest, uncorrupted essence, and of building new systems and structures in alignment with that.

 

The Paradox of Connection & the Feeling of Alienation

 

Aquarius is associated with the quantum field, with electricity, light, thunderstorm, with scientific discoveries and progress. The last Air sign of the Zodiac correlates with long-term memory and with the Akashic Records, the field of information containing the record of all that has ever occurred and will occur in the past, present, and future.

Aquarius rules technology, the internet, the invisible threads through which data is shared and spread, the network that connects us all globally. This Fixed Air archetype brings up the paradox of being constantly connected while feeling disconnected and the sense of alienation that comes with that. Just think of having the possibility to interact with strangers online all the time while being alone in a room, not feeling truly connected to anyone on the heart level.

One of the possible downfalls of Aquarius is to blindly believe in the superiority of the intellect over emotions and to forget how true, lasting evolution does not take place in the mind, but involves the emotional body. In its shadow or unconscious expression, this sign can be so objective and detached from the realms of feelings to become emotionally disconnected and inaccessible.

 

Exploring the Relationship between the Individual & the Group

 

The Sun is about the Self, while Aquarius teaches us about human interconnectedness and the importance of being a functional part of communities and groups. That’s the reason why, traditionally, this is not considered to be one of the best placements for the Sun. However, if we put aside judgments and dive a little deeper, we would easily agree that we learn a lot about our Self by consciously participating in human interactions.

The yearly transit of the Sun through Aquarius is an opportunity to explore the relationship between the individual and the collective, the group mind, and group consciousness. We have a chance to know more about ourselves, to observe our behavior within and without a group, to discover who we are and who we are not according to what happens when we interact with others.

Our individual expression can be either enhanced or held back by being members of a community. By joining forces with like minds, we support each other, our sense of purpose strengthens, our visions for the future get clearer, and we have more possibilities to have a valuable impact on society. Simultaneously, however, there’s the always risk of conforming to something that doesn’t feel true out of fear of being excluded, and the temptation of suppressing or hiding parts of ourselves due to peer pressure.

 

Aquarius season 2022: Transits and Lunation

 

During Aquarius season 2022, we will experience a New Moon in Aquarius and a Full Moon in Leo.

The New Moon in Aquarius of February 1 will involve a conjunction of Sun, Moon, and Saturn, all square Uranus. This potent lunation begins a lunar cycle centered around issues connected with the Saturn-Uranus square, the characterizing alignment of 2021. It will bring up the need to build new structures, implement progress, and find new compromises between tradition and innovation, past and future, certainty and uncertainty. It is likely to highlight a need to redefine our purpose, restructure our habitual ways of expression, question our current social role, and look at emotional matters objectively.

The Full Moon in Leo of February 16 will form a Fixed Grand Cross with the Lunar Nodes in Taurus/Scorpio and happen simultaneously with a Mars-Venus conjunction in Capricorn. These alignments could bring up inner conflicts relative to personal identity, exposure, self-expression, and visibility. The Leo Full Moon may reveal to us where we are hiding from the world, why we are afraid of being seen, what blockages prevent us from being fully and unapologetically expressed.

Another important alignment of the season is the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Aquarius. Retrograde Mercury will join the Sun on January 23, perfecting their inferior conjunction, which signals the midpoint of the retrograde and the beginning of a new Mercury cycle, an event with similar energy to a New Moon. This Mercury-Sun cazimi culminates a process of purification from ways of thinking and perceiving the world that are a result of conditioning and indoctrination.

 

Aquarius Season 2022: Invitation to Tap into the Future

 

Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer, the one who brings water, representing life, to the rest of humanity, and can carry something while being detached from it. This symbology reminds us of the importance of being aware of our emotions without identifying with them and underlines the value of making our contribution to the advancement of the collective. These will be central themes of the upcoming Aquarius season.

The journey of the Sun through the sign of the Water Bearer inaugurates a season of creative experimentation, intellectual advancements, and exploration of personal and collective identity. It is an opportunity to celebrate uniqueness and embrace individual differences, as they are what makes life so rich and interesting to navigate.

The upcoming weeks represent an invitation to tap into the future, establish new associations with like minds, and explore original ways of materializing our ideas and visions. We have a chance to nurture our intellectual creativity and our visionary capacity, get out of stagnation, and bring forth a new level of innovation and progress.

Full Moon in Cancer: Path to Empowerment

On January 17, 6:48 PM ET, we witness the first Full Moon of the calendar year, also referred to as the Wolf Moon. This cosmic event is taking place at 27°50’ of the sign of Cancer, the lunar domicile, and it is guiding us on a path to personal and collective empowerment.

The Moon in Cancer opposes the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn, intensifying our experience of feelings and emotions and inviting us to explore the way we deal with them, showing us what we need to transform and alchemize.

To celebrate the arrival of Full Moon in Cancer, on January 17 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live Full Moon in Cancer Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Full Moons bring clarity and facilitate understanding.

 

The light of the Sun completely illuminates the Moon, bringing awareness of our emotional world, subconscious patterns, and habitual reactions. At this time of the month, the truth can be perceived, and mysteries may be revealed. We tend to experience a strong emotionality and some degree of polarization between contrasting drives, as the Sun and the Moon activate opposing and complementary energies.

As the intentions we set on the New Moon may manifest, Full Moons mark the maturation and culmination of the lunar cycle. They inaugurate two weeks of slowing down and decreased momentum, a moment to share what we have been working on with others and release what we no longer want to carry. 

full moon in cancer

The Full Moon of January is also known as the Wolf Moon due to the fact that, at this time of the year and in the Northern part of what today we know as the United States, it was very common to hear howling wolves at night. This has inspired many stories and legends of ancient folklore centered around the connection between wolves and the Full Moon. Wolves remind us of the power of community and mutual support and the importance of being part of a Soul family that has our back in moments of crisis.

 

Full Wolf Moon in Cancer: There’s No Place Like Home

 

As an intense Capricorn season culminates, the Full Moon in Cancer highlights our need for safety, softness, belonging, nurturance, and comfort. The Moon is at home here. She expresses herself with great sensitivity and incredible intuition while reflecting an urge to withdraw into our private, inner world to come back to harmony.

While the Moon is in the sign of the Crab, we gravitate towards the familiar, the known, what feels secure. There is a spontaneous attunement to the environment and a natural connection to the surrounding atmosphere. Cancer is the sign relative to family and domestic realms: a Full Moon here is likely to bring these areas of our lives into the spotlight, reminding us that there’s no place like home.

 

Full Moon opposite Pluto: Finding Internal Security

 

The Moon correlates with memory, particularly with emotional memory. Her condition reflects how we try to get our emotional needs met and generate conditions of safety. When the Moon forms a hard aspect to Pluto, there can be a tendency to do so through emotional and psychological manipulation of others and the environment. Often, we do so to maintain a connection or a sense of predictability, to avoid feeling threatened from insecurity and the risk of not having our needs met. 

Moon-Pluto aspects are about letting go of unhealthy emotional attachments we are dependent upon for comfort and security, and that don’t allow us to develop a sense of safety coming from within. All oppositions bring revelations and understanding, and this Full Moon opposite Pluto has the potential to help us gain clarity on the psychology behind our emotional states and reactions and the expectations we, more or less consciously, place on other people.

 

Sun conjunct Pluto: Taking Responsibility for our Power

 

On this Full Moon, Pluto has indeed a prominent role. This faraway planet, considered to be the force of evolution, exposes what is decaying, decomposing, and deteriorating to promote a radical, complete metamorphosis. Since it entered Capricorn in 2008, Pluto has been bringing up all the shadows of society, institutions, and established systems. Meanwhile, this transit invites us to become aware of the conditioning we have internalized due being exposed to these structures.

Pluto is now tightly conjunct with the Sun. The Sun meets Pluto once a year, calling for a deep transformation of our sense of self, purpose, identity, and expression. This alignment is an invitation to take responsibility for our power and don’t be afraid to embody and express it. 

Sun-Pluto aspects encourage us to discover the limits of our will, challenge our fears, and explore matters of personal identity, self-confidence, self-affirmation, and exposure. In Capricorn, this alignment invites us to establish our individual identity in the context of the changing social structures. We may reflect on how to contribute to the creation of systems that allow the full expression of our creativity while generating value for the collective.

 

Full Moon trine Neptune: Opportunities to Heal

 

The Moon is in a Water trine with Neptune in Pisces, a flowing aspect of ease and harmony. This alignment suggests powerful intuition and ease of connection with the emotions and feelings of others. An immense capacity for empathy and compassion facilitates forgiveness and supports our capacity to put ourselves into someone else’s shoes. During these days, increased emotional openness may help us heal and process something still unresolved. 

Full Moon in Cancer

A desire to save another, to be saved or rescued could come up during this lunation. Neptune in aspect to the Moon erases the boundaries between self and other. It increases our inspiration and our desire for creative expression. Channeling our feelings into art can feel incredibly healing and rewarding. During these days, we may also be careful of not self-sacrificing or dismissing our needs in favor of other people’s needs, which may lead to experiences of disillusionment later on. 

 

Mars square Neptune: Aligning Dreams and Actions

 

Neptune is quite prominent in this lunation as, besides being aligned with the Moon, is also in a square aspect to Mars in Sagittarius, an energy that has been active for the entire week. Hard aspects between Mars and Neptune always generate some amount of frustration. Squares reflect a tension between two celestial bodies trying to go in different directions and that, in doing so, block each other’s way. 

Mars and Neptune have very little in common. While Mars is about action, decision, reactivity, and sharpness, Neptune is about passivity, blurriness, confusion, and receptivity. Their square can reflect some difficulties matching our dreams, ideals, and wishes with actual actions directed towards a specific goal in the material reality. We may feel unmotivated and lethargic and come to believe that our efforts don’t lead to any tangible result. We may feel frustrated if change doesn’t happen fast enough, or have the impression that our life force dissipates in multiple directions. 

All Mars-Neptune aspects underline the importance of aligning our actions and choices in the material reality with our spiritual path. They challenge us to resolve any incongruencies between our ideals and values, how we act, and what we do. At their best, Mars-Neptune contacts bring out the most exquisite artistry, creativity, and inspiration, allowing us to connect with our capacity to be a vessel for Spirit and reach deep states of flow.

Full Moon in Cancer: Path to Empowerment

 

During this pivotal moment of human history, we are becoming more and more aware of what power is and what power isn’t. By witnessing destructive, corrupted examples of authority and leadership, we are being challenged to develop and embody constructive, healthy ones. As we get to understand what we do not want the world to become, we can envision and build a better reality, both for ourselves and for future generations. Everyone is now called to take responsibility to do their part.

We are about to experience two important astrological shifts. Tomorrow the Lunar Nodes change sign and Uranus stations direct, catalyzing an acceleration of events and inviting us to step up to new evolutionary challenges. The Cancer Full Moon reminds us of our task of learning to hold ourselves, parent ourselves, and take care of ourselves emotionally, spiritually, but also financially and materially. 

This potent lunation marks a turning point in our path of personal empowerment and emotional maturation. As we deepen our self-knowledge and our understanding of our internal dynamics, we have a chance to embrace a new level of personal responsibility. Refining our self-regulation habits will help us feel stronger, more grounded, and more self-secure, and ultimately navigate the upcoming changes optimally.

New Moon in Capricorn: Rebuilding Reality

On January 2, 1:33 PM ET, we experience the first New Moon of the year at 12°20’ of the sign of Capricorn, an invitation to reflect on what we desire to manifest and a chance of rebuilding our reality. The last lunar cycle started with a Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, the last Eclipse in the sign: we are now out of Eclipse season, and this Capricorn New Moon marks the start of a new journey.

On the same day, at 02:10 AM ET, a few hours before the exact Sun-Moon alignment, Mercury leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius. This shift invites out-of-the-box thinking and encourages us to question our habitual way of perceiving reality, as well as what we are told to blindly believe.

 

New Moon in Capricorn: Setting Practical Intentions

 

The Sun and the Moon meet in the sign of the Sea-Goat, bringing to our attention the need to build new systems and establish a new relationship with order, discipline, structure, with our inner authority and with the outer ones. 

New Moons are new beginnings: they represent a wonderful time for intention setting, and they invite us to get clear on our visions and desires. We have a chance to start anew and receive fresh energy from the Cosmos: for the upcoming two weeks, spontaneous activity and action are encouraged, as the Universe invites us to be daring and learn from trial and error. A New Moon in Capricorn is a fantastic moment to set practical goals and intentions and establish a clear plan of action to move closer to our dreams.

new moon in capricorn

On this New Moon, happening shortly after Mercury enters Aquarius, there is abundant emphasis on both the Capricorn archetype and the Aquarius archetype: this highlights the underlying influence of the Saturn-Uranus square, still very active.

 

New Moon in Capricorn: What Structures Do We Want to Build?

 

Capricorn is associated with time, with our maturation process, and with our journey of learning self-regulation and self-responsibility. This sign correlates with social systems, with traditional and established institutions, but also with our inner structures, such as the conditioning we received from our family, culture, and religion. 

Since 2008, Pluto has been transiting the sign, deeply challenging and transforming the conditioned expression of this archetype: we can’t talk about Capricorn without mentioning this. Pluto will be here until 2023, when it will enter Aquarius: we are in the last phases of this long-term journey, which corresponds with the breakdown of existing obsolete structures and the ruthless exposure of what doesn’t work anymore, of what is decaying and needs to be eliminated.

Capricorn is connected with the discipline and hard work that allows us to make our dreams come true and manifest them in the material reality. The upcoming lunar cycle will invite us to reflect on the structures we desire to build and the sacrifices we are willing to make to manifest them, encouraging us to ponder on whether our successes and achievements in the external reality honor what is going on in our inner reality.

 

New Moon trine Uranus: Creative Opportunities

 

The Sun and the Moon in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus. Trines are harmonic alignments that reflect an easy exchange of energy and information between celestial bodies traveling through signs of the same element, in this case, Earth. Sun trine Uranus increases the potential for originality, creativity, and innovation: this aspect inspires us to walk unbeaten paths and gravitate toward a style of self-expression that doesn’t conform to current standards. The Moon trine Uranus indicates ease in adapting to changes and will help us see our emotions from an objective perspective.

Sun and Moon trine Uranus indicate a dislike for restrictions and limitations and a need to be free to express ourselves as we desire. Sudden new opportunities and unexpected possibilities for change could come out of the blue. During the following weeks, the influence of Uranus will support original, pioneering, and eccentric endeavors that help us get out of stagnation and build something in line with our personal purpose.

 

New Moon square Chiron: Expect Triggers

 

The Sun and the Moon are in a square aspect to Chiron in Aries. Squares are angles reflecting tension and friction, and they have the potential to force change by making us uncomfortable. Chiron is a planetoid commonly associated with the figure of the Wounded Healer: in Astrology, it is connected with deep wounds centered around feelings of rejection, abandonment, and isolation, as well as with our capacity to heal ourselves and others.

The activation of Chiron on this New Moon suggests the potential for these wounds being triggered during the upcoming lunar cycle. With the Sun square Chiron, we may feel held back in our self-expression and self-actualization by insecurities and fears around leadership, pioneering, and self-determination. The square between Moon and Chiron could make this more challenging on an emotional level, as it could correspond to a sense that our needs and desires aren’t valid or important enough to be addressed. In addition, the Moon in Capricorn is not very comfortable: here, the Moon typically has hard times expressing emotions or asking for nurturance and containment.

During the upcoming weeks, we could experience emotional pain and frustration linked to feeling misunderstood, unseen, and invalidated. Nonetheless, becoming aware of the triggers reflected by this configuration has the potential to help us detach from limiting beliefs, thinking patterns, and self-sabotaging tendencies linked to expectations of failure, feelings of insignificance, and low self-worth.

 

The Saturn-Uranus square is still active

 

Saturn is the planetary ruler of Capricorn, hence it represents an important player on this New Moon. Saturn is transiting through Aquarius and is still in a tight square aspect to retrograde Uranus in Taurus. Their alignment has characterized the entire 2021, bringing up friction between the past and the future, the familiar and the unfamiliar, the desire to preserve tradition and the desire to bring forth innovation, the need to feel in control, and the urge to break free from control.

The Saturn-Uranus square reflects the ongoing polarization that has been emerging within the collective, and the conflict between the seemingly irreconcilable visions many of us have for the future of society. It can be considered an invitation to explore how to implement change on a small, personal, local scale. During the upcoming weeks and months, we have an opportunity to find out how we can experience a sense of inner freedom within the limiting conditions we are experiencing, and how we can experience discipline as something that frees us rather than restricts us.

 

Mercury enters Aquarius: Invitation to Think Out of the Box

 

A few hours before the New Moon, Mercury entered the sign of the Water Bearer, increasing the emphasis on the archetype. Mercury in Aquarius is a transit that indicates a strong capacity for innovative thinking and creative problem solving: sudden downloads and out-of-the-box ideas are likely to emerge. Incredibly futuristic and intelligently attuned to technological advancements, Mercury here has the potential to help us find new solutions to the issues we have been struggling with.

On January 14, Mercury will station retrograde and it will come back to Capricorn on January 25, inspiring a deep reassessment of social, familial, cultural, and religious conditioning that we have internalized and that still affects our thoughts and perceptions. While Mercury in Aquarius increases our mental energy, our fantasy, and our capacity to dream and envision the future, Mercury coming back to Capricorn and the Mercury-Saturn conjunction of March 2 will help us bring our ideas down to earth and materialize them in the 3D reality.

New Moon in Capricorn: Unpacking our Conditioning

 

Meanwhile, retrograde Venus is still conjunct with Pluto, also in the sign of the Sea-Goat, an aspect that intensifies our experience of relationships and our drive to deeply analyze what takes place within ourselves and in our connections. The Venus-Pluto alignment has been active since December 10, and it is promoting a profound transformation of our values, of our way to manage finances, of our way to be in connection with others, and of our relationship with the social structure at large.

Capricorn has to do with the social, familial, cultural, and religious conditioning we have internalized as children. As a result, it is associated with the temptation or the habit to conform to socially accepted standards of conduct and behavior in order to avoid others’ judgment, condemnation, and ultimately isolation. 

This New Moon, together with the Venus retrograde cycle, could inspire new reflections about what’s behind these kinds of tendencies, helping us witness aspects of ourselves and our behavior we weren’t conscious of. During the upcoming weeks, we have a chance to reach a deeper awareness of our relationship with social systems, norms, regulations, and institutions. Working on our relationship with the external authorities could help us feel more grounded in our inner authority and firmer in our decisions, even when they don’t align with mainstream expectations.
