This eclipse in Capricorn is wrapping up a story since 2018 when the Cancer/Capricorn eclipses started. An area of your life has been getting worked on. Dealing with the Can/Cap axis it’s themes are around physical, financial security or work, ambition and emotional security or family, emotional needs and self care.
Saturn Rx rules this Moon in Capricorn. Saturn has just moved back into Capricorn, wrapping up some business or an area of life that’s getting a big restructuring. Saturn is commitment, responsibilities and determination to get the job done. The hard work is worth the climb and with Uranus in a trine you may find that it happens quicker or you have a new sense of freedom and ease then you had before.
Full Moon’s are a culmination and completion point with Eclipses the energy stays around for months. And as you know Eclipses, as some may say is a “wild card” energy or theme and you just don’t know what that may be. As always, go look at your personal birth chart to see the area’s of life it’ been happening in since July 2018.
New Moon Eclipse in Cancer, 4:41:38 pm, 21st!
New Moon eclipse at 0 deg Cancer, also falls on the Solstice (Sun’s ingress into Cancer and the longest day of the year). This is a new beginning with a lot of energy. It’s an eclipse, a wild card energy, I would put off any planned new beginnings as you would normally do with a new moon, eclipses are kinda doing it for you. Like I said it’s the wild card and it’s unknown, only the cosmos or universe knows. It’s the 2nd in 3 eclipse, and you never really know what this change is about and may not really know for sure to start off with, it can take up to 6 months for you to see or be in the change. Saturn is timing as well, patience, endurance and discipline maybe your greatest allies at this time to whatever is happening in your life, with this you find strength within(spiritual).
It’s in the sign of Cancer areas of home, family, safety, security, comfort, food and emotional needs. I also see cancer as the most inner private emotional self (heart), will play apart for this highly energized eclipse.
Saturn in Aquarius is in a quincunx or inconjunct to this eclipse, a quincunx is incompatible connection it’s difficult to understand and adjustments are needed, somehow the connection needs to be integrated. We all know Saturn restricts, limits, slows you down plus it’s rules or authority. It may be a slow start, a holding back of emotions or needs, for some it’s being cautious about a new start. Integrating what you need or want (Sun/Moon) and what you have to do (Saturn) – Freedom & Restrictions, this is why it’s best to be patient, persevere, be responsible.
With 5 planet Rx, nothing is moving fast, more about the inner journey, pausing, proceeding slowly and going over areas again, doing the past before you can do the future. Venus goes direct on the 25th, here some of what you want or need may start to be addressed.
Like always go check out your own birth chart for more information about where this will impact you the most.
Blessing under this Eclipse and Solstice.
The New Moon in Gemini has aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Mercury and Venus. It’s an air moon, ruler is Mercury, which is conjunct Venus in Gemini. What’s Gemini communication, ideas, choices and information add desire, attraction or longing thrown in (Venus).
Sun/Moon trine Saturn Rx in Aquarius, any new information, news, messages or ideas are grounded and practical, are clear, sure and straightforward. But the Venus/Mercury square to Neptune, makes it foggy. Neptune can draw you in, you may even get lost in an idea or thought or attraction. Don’t lose sight of what is real, what is sure, stick to a rule or structure, go back to Saturn, stay grounded, be practical and mature.
Trying to pin things into place at the New Moon will be slippery. There will be points of clarity or signs along the way which will let you know what direction to go or choice to make. I guess stay open and flexible, ask questions if any confusion or doubt arises. Be discerning as much as you can and think about all the information that you have on hand until it all becomes clear.
As always know where this full moon is happening in Your birth chart for a deeper understanding about what’s happening for you.
This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.
Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?
Sun and Moon both meet up with Uranus after the new moon, this can bring in some form of liberation around restriction, a burst of energy or information that lightens things up. It is Uranus so it can be delivered quickly or jarring and maybe a surprise, so just watch out for this. Remember to stay grounded and keep it real.
Saturn rewards all the hard work that you do, but you are going to have to wait for the solid, secure, structure(Taurus) to be put in place. You may find the Taurus season of April-May things solidify. It’s a start, now you patiently wait.
SUN enters Capricorn, this year is a special time as the Sun enters Capricorn it meets up with Saturn in Capricorn and its been 29 years since Saturn has been in the sign that it rules. Saturn is finally home after being away for a long, long, time.
You are beginning another long cycle make this one count. You are building your life.
Sun enters Capricorn, if possible take some time out to reflect/contemplate on the year, or the last 3 years, look at where you are now, how much has changed, how much have you changed?
Did you achieve all that you set out to do? or did your goals and plans not become reality. Where did you Succeed and fail, take some time before you enter into 2018 to reflect and pause, to honestly look at where you are now.
What is real and true for you.
Work at structuring your goals, work at them, release some if they need to go. Look at the year gone by to see what is different. That is the starting point, not the dreams of last year, I am pretty sure many things have changed and so have you. Some things you may have wanted to change and lets face it, they really needed to and others were out of your hands and control.
In Capricorn you may feel more serious, sober, conservative, cautious, responsible and ambitious, you will work better with more structure, organization and discipline, you also can feel less emotional or would prefer not do deal with to many emotions, let’s stick to the facts, keep to the rules and follow the instructions and plans, as you have things to do.
Be persistent, practical. Excellent time for making plans and goals, more chance they will manifest and crystallize.
Capricorn is a driven sign, they will work hard and preserver in getting what they want. Once the mind is set there is no turning back.
It’s about planning, doing, having structure, keeping your eye on the long term goals, being wiser, smarter, determined, ambitious and very persistent.
The goat’s ambition will push you through, keep climbing towards the top of the mountain.

Well like always, many things going on in the skies. Of course the big one is Saturn leaves Sagittarius 20th, (lets hear a bloody big cheer for that!!!) especially Saggies, Gemini, Pisces and Virgo will be pleased as you probably have had enough and enters Capricorn, less friction as Saturn is back in the sign he rules. Like always, look at your birth chart to see where Capricorn is in your chart and how you can work with Saturn.
Mercury goes Direct on the 23rd. This will roll the energy along a little faster. Bringing things, situations forward.
Sun also enters Capricorn 22nd (solstice) meets up with Saturn, just a few hours later. Take some time to slow down, to contemplate, reflect on the path ahead. Think about how you are going to build a new life.

Mercurys 2nd meet up with Saturn(28th Nov, 1st) Astro aspects, Mercury conjunct Saturn, 28 Nov, 2017! there’s more to talk about or more information to come in. Stay steady, be patient, things may not end so fast or commitments may not come together quickly. A process is happening. Saturn generally blocks/stops or limits, plus gives you a reality check but Mars influence is keeping the movement going.
Mars in Libra brings in the energy, drive forward or to keep going with the plans, co-operate is the best way to go. Don’t let things stagnate or stall, stay with it.
This is all about going forward, also a process is unfolding and happening here. Communication is key to all of this, bit by bit the story will be told and will unfold, but there is more to come still.
So keep going, and remember “you got this”
Mercury Rx begins hours before the Full Moon.
Mercury conjunct Saturn.
Sun opposite Moon, both square to Neptune.

Moon quincunx Jupiter.
Well, there’s a lot going on with this full moon, as I am sure you all know and feel. It’s all a big muddle really, inside and out. But finding your way is a must. Many choices and decisions are going to be made and need to be made, the time now is to work out what all that is about, what do you want and what will you choice? for the next part of your journey, you have been working hard clearing out all year long, here you are at a pivotal point and very close to the end, so whatever is happening now is part of the story of old and new. Over the next few weeks you get the chance to review the story and then go forward after having had time to reflect.
This is the end of a major journey right now, until you reach the end of December and enter January, where you begin again. Best to end on a high note, so when next year comes you are at a place of truth within you, now is the time to be true, honest, clear, and I gotta say with less baggage(very important, you gotta leave that in 2017) fearless, vulnerable, plus have faith particularity in yourself.
This is all about communication, Mercury rules Gemini. Gemini/Sagittarius axis is about information/learning and knowledge/wisdom/experience. Light is shining on the mind, thoughts, ideas, what you need to know, what you know. Pay attention to words, either written or spoken. You’re seeking the truth here with Sun in Sagittarius.
With Saturn involved and he’s a big player, getting ready to leave Sag and enter Capricorn, on the 19-20th of Dec, he has been giving us lesson, upon lesson, deleting and working us through our stuff and karma, to restructure us into our truth, for you to be honest, work with integrity, to grow up, be responsible and own your stuff. You know what you have had to do, let’s hope you have done it. Saturn does reward for the job/work done. And when he moves into Capricorn you will see where you are at on the karmic scale, rewards or none?
So, it’s very important with all of the information/communication that will be floating around to be honest and true in all that you do.
Neptune can spin both ways here, can bring in the confusion, uncertainty, illusion, are you kidding yourself? you may not know what is true and what is not, listening, speaking with clarity, honesty and an openness is the best approach, and ask question if your are not sure. Neptune will help dissolve any barriers, so you can do this with faith and trust in the process.
Adjustments may be made, being flexible, and stay grounded, have a daily practical routine for the next few weeks to get yourself steady and most of all…… slow down, Mercury is Rx remember, you are being asked to go over, reflect and review.
Life just keeps on rolling on, keeps dishing it all out. Here you are thinking, now the Sun being in the ever optimistic Sagittarius that the Sun would shine a little more brightly, but wait, there is this coming.
Mercury conjunct Saturn (28th Nov), your thoughts, communication, thinking hits it up with Saturn who blocks, limits, gives it the dose of reality to all Mercurian things and topics. Somethings can clearly be laid out on the table here, commitments or ending may come about. Are you in or out.
Negative thinking or thoughts are strong during this, you may be more conservative and cautious with your approach too. You may also be having trouble being optimistic about life and where you are at, in your life.
Can be a great time for working on plans as your thoughts are more precise and focused.
Mercury goes Rx(3rd Dec), hits up again with Saturn on the 6th Dec, so whatever is happening on the 28th will be up for review, revision or delay again, you think it’s over but is it?
And this leads me up to the Full Moon in Gemini(3-4rd Dec), Mercury also rules Gemini, so Mercury is strong, which happens on the same day Mercury goes Rx, plus this moon is aspecting Neptune(a square, not an easy one) just to add a little or a lot of confusion, delusion, uncertainty to what the hell is really going on. Back into some fog! Being in Gemini it may bring in information, choices/questions or options, more than one way of looking at or doing something. And you won’t really know until Mercury goes D on the 22nd-23rd Dec, of what the outcome is or what it is really all about.
Mercury stay in Sag will be a long one, entered on the 6th Nov – 11th Jan, 2018, while there will go Rx, 3rd Dec – 23rd.
Mercury’s in the opposite sign that it rules, Gemini is where Mercury works best, in Sag, the mind gets to stretch further out, has to think bigger, thoughts and logic will be touched with thoughts of hope and inspiration. It gets to weave a bigger picture to the story. Not so much looking at the details or facts, you will want to see the whole thing. So some of the facts may not stick as you are too busy, preaching about the bigger picture you want to paint. Which can be tricky at times, as you may not want to miss out on the details, as during the Rx period will be important. Best to remember this along the way.
Whats enjoyable with Mercury’s time in Sag, is fresh ideas, a new way to look at something, gaining higher knowledge or broadening your perspective on areas of life that have become too narrow. Great time to travel or go to far off places in your mind, broaden your mind with new stories, have something new to marvel at. Use this time to clear out the mind of old long-held beliefs, let something new filter in.
You communication style may turn more cheerful and optimistic, reality might just take a bit of a nose dive, as you believe that you can achieve the visionary view you have of life. You know Sag’s they are the optimistic bunch of the zodiac.
Mercury Rx will happen, you then have to go back over all of the this again and get a closer, slower, look at your faith, beliefs, hopes, attitudes and the new thoughts that have come. Pay attention to what is just too far out there, being in Sag, facts are flown out, as you are in the mix of wild enthusiasm, filled with inspiration and perhaps some exaggeration of what you thought is possible.
This may turn it around and the reality check pops in, and of course Mercury hits it up with Saturn just before Rx stationary and just after and that is a one big whoop of reality, right there, Boom!! you may have to come back to earth, instead of flying high in your mind. Use Saturn’s rules and limits to let you see how this will really work out for you, this is the framework.
Mercury conjunct Saturn – 26th Nov and then 9th Dec.
If you know your birth chart check it out to see where this is influencing your life and where the Rx will happen.
The third and last meet up between these two planets, first up in Dec 24-25 2016, then again in May 19-20 2017. Trines are considered one of the most beneficial because you don’t have to do too much work with them, but it’s best to put some effort into it as you can get positive results.
Saturn and Uranus connect, here you have been asked to gently let go of the old for the new, but in the end it’s like turning something old, new(the new you). It’s moving on, letting go of any old structure/security, beliefs/attitudes, rules, shoulds, forms of security that you thought were holding you up and together, the false structure within. You get the nudge for change, liberation, freedom to come out of the old structure, to loosen up, to expand and go beyond the fear zone.
Uranus looks for the new future and between the two they have removed the layer’s of walls that held you in, removed the barriers that held you back from the future you want. Hopefully there was not too many shocks, surprises along the way as Uranus does like to bring that, likes to loosen you up for change, to take a look behind the surprise to get you see whats within the cracks.
As the future is calling, and its the higher path of heart, the higher truths, a higher love.
