NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS
New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this time. As with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.
Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.
Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.
Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.
Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.
Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.
You know when these two connect things happen, Jupiter and Pluto are meeting up today for the first of three in 2018. The good is that it’s a sextile a harmonious aspect.
This brings in a chance or opportunity for growth, to move on. Great transformation can happen, go with the flow, go with the changes that opportunity brings you. Supports you in moving on, makes it easier for you to go and get what you want.
It’s the dynamic duo at work, moves are being made in co-operative ways for success, growth and personal power. It can feel like life/people/situations are pulling you out of yourself or comfort zones to go further into areas you want and long to go. Be pulled out of your old life and ways, go willingly, don’t kick and scream. Evolving up is the name of the game, have faith, be ambitious. You’ve got that plan, gaol, let this combo help you out during 2018, as they will shine the way for you.
Keep in mind, Jupiter is in Scorpio, plowing to the depth of some unconsciousness within and bringing it to consciousness, this may cause some chaos, intense emotions, fear even, but the good of this is for the more to come to you. You can certainly feel the challenge/struggle of the new calling you and some emotions will be raw, Pluto/Scorpio brings all of that stuff out, and when dealt with, turn it into an empowered you. That’s the gold!
Water and earth time to build, this sextile will help you along, Scorpio and Capricorn, keep it all real and authentic, that’s the only way to go.
Go check out your birth chart and see where all of this is happening for you.
*Jupiter sextile Pluto dates*
16th January 2018 – 14th April, 2018 – 12th September, 2018
SUN conjunct PLUTO!
Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.
VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.
Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.
Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.
Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.
Venus and Sun meet up again, last time was, March 24-25th 2017 in Aries, Venus was Rx. What was started back then comes to a culmination point, being in Aries you may have started a new phase or beginning of, love, self love, money, relationship, self-esteem and values plus Sun, identity, vitality and purpose. You found faith, strength and courage in Aries.
Now in Capricorn, it’s manifesting or has been, is forming a structure, it’s becoming solid for you, Capricorn can and may bring limits, rules and work to all of these things. It can also bring in stability and longevity to Venus and Sun themes.
They do meet up again 27th Oct, 2018 when Venus is Rx in Scorpio, another layer is added and more to come.
MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for more.
Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.

Uranus has been Rx since 3rd Aug, 2017, now the planet known as the “great awakener” is on the move and move he will. Uranus entered Aries in May 2010, he is moving out of Aries in May 2018 and enters Taurus. Big change into a fixed earth sign. Change, freedom, liberation, ideals, vision and independence are all key words when describing Uranus, he can change your life, it can be chaos. One minute you’re here and then you are way over there.
Uranus would have put you in the land of chaos and havoc. You may have found that it was unexpected, shocking/surprising, in some or all ways. Situations or people may have been the cause of the unexpected changes that were being made. It was all for the greater good of YOU. For you to step up and out of the stagnant place that you had perhaps found yourself in. Not easy though, you would have had to come up with a new vision, idea, a new way of being. Even a whole new you.
Hopefully you have and did let go, went along for the roller coaster ride, you probably in many ways had no choice, as the ground was being ripped right out from under you.
He does a few more miles to go before he gets out of Aries, so for some they may have more Uranus to contend with, there will still be some chaos, change and uncertainty along the way. If you know your chart – from 24 to 29 degrees of the Cardinal signs(Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) will be feeling this transit most strongly.
With all Uranus things “nothing stays the same”, change is the name of the game.
Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.
Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.
Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.
Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.
Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.
Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.
Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.
Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

You take the realistic approach and need to be real. Take a look at your wants and how you get them, what limits you from getting them, are you to cautious, fearful, shamed/guilty.

She knows things, perhaps it’s time to work your magic! Feel her pull, her potential for all things to happen.
Find some stillness in your week, the High Priestess lets you know that changes are happening slowly within you and around you. Sometimes things are about to unfold, be revealed and she holds them from you but you KNOW that something is afoot, so you listen to hear what she is trying to tell you. Trust her, trust yourself, trust your own inner voice. Listen to your intuition.
Waite, be patient.
There is a lot brewing within her.
Sometimes I see her as an incubation period, before things start to manifest.
