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.
This new moon in Aries conjunct Chiron, square the nodes is a new beginning, it may be painful and it will hurt (chiron) also a turning point between the past and future.
This new moon is about your courage to keep moving beyond this place you’re now facing, it will take all of your inner resources, nerve, will and confidence to move into the new beginnings as the old falls down. Feel it, heal it, work with all the tools/resources you have to keep you healthy, grounded and safe, it’s your inner well of courage that will get you there. Stay present in the moment, focus on the now, face what’s right in front of you.
Chiron conjuncts this new moon, feeling vulnerable, pain/wounded, Chiron being in Aries makes it proactive, the only way to work with Chiron is to heal what hurts. The more you work with the pain you discover the gifts of your healing, which brings in strength, wisdom and empowers you. This is Chiron gift.
Were moving into new territory with the square to the nodes, past and future, a choice is upon you, a turning point. South node (past) in Capricorn, structures, rules, tradition, the known, go North to Cancer (future), which is emotional stability and security, feeling safe. Check in with what’s inside of you, how much courage, trust, strength, self belief, self confidence do you have. Do you know or think you can make it without the old structures? It’s an Aries moon, you just have too, even if it feels unknown, uncomfortable and you feel vulnerable, which is part of the north nodes journey.
Be patient, Stay focused
Act instinctively, Act consciously
Be Awake and Aware
Find a Quiet Place and get Calm
Breaking down the barriers, the only way through is with kindness…..feeling every little heartfelt moment at a time.
I have the Cancer/ Capricorn Nodes in my birth chart, and I have to say, when I first learnt about the Nodes, the key to work through some karma, the place to head towards I was excited, until I realised I would have to discover and enter the world of my feelings, emotions, being vulnerable and then I just got scared, what is this place?, I asked myself. Then of course I felt them ALL!
Over time of course it gets easier, I did feel more comfortable with them, I did settle into them, I still long for the good old days when I was too busy to feel, it’s always going to feel better to me if I don’t have to feel/care and don’t have to connect, let something in. Because if you stop for long enough, let all of the feelings in, it kinda creates a mashup of madness, hysteria, love and joy, it’s one big melting pot.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma, enter into cardinal signs of Cancer (North) and Capricorn (south), the Nodes are re-directors. With them changing into Cancer/Capricorn you’re headed for the Cancer nodal axis to help you on the path.
Feeling! yes, feelings are going to be a major player in this one, you gotta feel them, follow the path that feels right, follow your heart. It’s less about the “shoulds”, doing or being task or goal oriented, this is still part of it, of course but now your compass is attached to the feeling zone to direct you. This may make you uncomfortable particularly if you hate doing that job, or if you just cannot stand that thing or person, if you’re just not “feeling it” anymore this is where you are going to get really uncomfortable and tired.
Sometimes you can forget who you are! with all the working, achieving and doing that you do. Helps you to focus on the external world, and to disconnect from self.
The way forward is through the inner world of self, feeling, getting back in touch with you. This is where the true security lies, being emotionally self-reliant, to be able to bend and flow, with whatever life brings your way.
So when your asked how are you feeling, now is a good time to know.
You’re leaving behind a place you know well, the South Node (Capricorn) it’s the physical, material, financial realms, the work you do, task orientated, the goals you set for yourself, the rules, being the authority, structures and guidelines, patriarchy, the old ways of doing, being detached, cold and aloof. These are all still important, however it’s now time to put a little feeling, love, kindness and care into all that you do…..you can loosen up.
South Nodes deal with karma…..that word! Past karma, past lives, the yesterdays of your life. What you need to sort out this life. This is also familiar territory, you know well, very easy to stay with what you know.
The North Node is the future, possibility of making changes. Not so familiar path that’s uncomfortable to you, especially for the work alcoholic, the doer, likes the rules or lives a rigid structured life, in Cancer/Capricorn, which is what you will be working with here.
North Node is what you gotta do, to master the South, to sort this out. And like I said earlier it’s about feelings, self-care, having a rest, relaxing a little or even a lot.
So, if you’re tired, take a rest.
Stop with the “shoulds”
Take the time to nurture yourself.
If you’re going to fast, slow it down, stop and smell the flowers along the way.
Sit with your feelings.
Ask yourself, how safe, secure, supported and protected do you feel.
The Nodes it’s a 18 year cycle. The last times we had the Nodes in Cancer-Capricorn
April 10, 2000 – October 31, 2001
September 25, 1981 – March 16, 1983
December 24, 1962 – August 25, 1964.
November brings in some changes, big changes, hope you’re ready.
Some stories or themes will still be playing out as some planets are still Rx and have to do their thing, before they wrap a story.
Mercury goes Rx, which is always a treat.
Jupiter is going home into Sagittarius, Jupiter’s is a 12 year cycle, and now the big planet is home, (Jupiter rules Sag). After spending a year in Scorpio, where Jupiter took you to some scary places within. Once Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you may be able to turn all of the emotional experiences into wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Sagittarius is the sign to help you understand what the hell that was all about, not just about you but the world you live in.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma move out of Leo/Aquarius and into Cancer/Capricorn.

25th October, 2018 @2:45 am @ 1° Taurus
Full Moon in Taurus, fixed earth, conjunct Uranus Rx, you may feel unsettled, unstable, edgy or nervous. Feeling or needs around staying stable/secure are going to be influenced by Uranus, which is every thing but that. Uranus is change, it usually is a shock, surprise, sudden or unexpected, which way that goes you don’t know. It may be exciting and liberating or not. Good news is Saturn is in the mix as the stabilizing influence, Saturn will hold some of the ground beneath your feet.
Taurus the bull likes it all be calm, chilled, relaxed, feeling good, satisfied, loves all of the good things that life can provide. Taurus, material, physical world, very earthy and grounded, rules areas of money, worth, resources, possession these are some of the things that may be shaken up and given new life to.
Being a full moon, a result, release or culmination will be illuminated, something that needs to be let go of or brought to the surface, for some it may be that you push through a blockage or a challenge.
Both Uranus and Venus are Rx, so it’s something that you have touched/working on before or you still are. Uranus may bring change, disruption or surprise, may not really be that much of a surprise, you never know.
Sun and Moon square Nodes of Fate moving away(south node in Aquarius) from a place of being on the edges, not shining, being aloof, detached or shock/trauma and stepping into a place of pride, connection and being centered (Leo, North Node) go with what feels right, that feels and looks more like you.
Saturn in Capricorn trine Moon/Uranus brings the stabilizing/grounding influence which is happy news because Uranus can shake it up. With focus, patience and following whatever the news or new is that Saturn/Uranus are working with. This is change, breaking free. Saturn and Uranus are both working together. Breakthroughs that can bring long-lasting result. But you may be having a whole bag of mixed feelings in regards to this.
It may not be an easy Full Moon, you may find yourself at a crossroads, past and future, which way to go? look at what emotions you’re feeling, stay grounded, focused, be disciplined and work with what is happening, this may not be the complete story as Rx planets are wrapped in this moon, they will show up again. However this is a pivotal point in the story, since April/May and Sept, you know the road your on, this may just be another twist and turn to the place your headed. So like the bull, try to keep it simple.
Like always how this will impact you depends on your personal birth chart and like always go check yours out.
July will be a big month, the eclipses are coming, the nodes of fate switches things up and around, In the sign of Cancer and Aquarius, are you ready for this?
July is another action packed month of planetary movements and change ups.
Good vibe in July, Jupiter goes Direct, a good thing, a little luck or joy may start to turn things around, especially for Saggies and Pisces as Jupiter rules these two sign.
Jul 5 – Chiron Retrograde 2°Aries – planet of wounds/healing, like all Rx phrase it’s an inward journey, Chiron always offers a gift, take the time out to do some healing work on the sore spots that have been poked, find the gift amongst the pain, as this is your offering.
Jul 9 – Venus enters Virgo – planet of love, money, relationships, likes/dislikes enters Virgo, mutable earth, be practical, realistic and humble, she gets more real and focused here. You may have a few choices to make, one of Virgo’s qualities is being discerning.
Jul 10 – Jupiter Direct 13°Scorpio – Bah Boom! planet of luck, abundance, growth and expansion goes Direct, might bring in a little shine and lift off some of the heavy emotions.
Jul 13 – New Moon solar eclipse in 20° Cancer – well, you never really know what is going to happen here, openings and closing.
Jul 22 – Sun enters Leo – you get to shine a little brighter.
Jul 26 – Mercury Retrograde 23°Leo – planet of communication, information, you all know about Mercury Rx.
Jul 27 – Full Moon Lunar eclipse 4° Aquarius – Yes, another eclipse, it’s always tricky, a light goes off and on, what changes during this time, fate/universe shifts thing around. It may take a while to see the full measure of the eclipses, they can last up to 6 months.
Jupiter goes Direct, Chiron and Mercury go Rx, still many planet in Rx phrase, slowing it all down. Adds to the slog, however it does give you time to breathe and to pace yourself, slow down, go over situations in your life. To see what was missed or overlooked before.
And… it all just keeps going on, and really, why should this month be any different.
It’s all still a mish-mash of chaos and uncertainty, might stay that way until September, so go grab your birth chart with glee and see where the action is taking place for you on a more personal level.
Mars in Aquarius on June 8th makes the first of three conjunctions to the South Node. Why 3? Mars is going Rx.
When Mars meets the South Node a change in direction. Leaving the old, attempts or taking action to free yourself from ties of the past, you let go. Mars in Aquarius is liberation, freedom, independence and the future. It is also a good time to release any old residue of past emotions, like anger or resentment you have to past relationships or situations that you have had some hurts or trauma with.
Mars the planet of action, direction, initiative/aggression or anger goes Rx, this is where you do the re-do, you might have to wait, put a few things on hold, progress slows down. Take the time to reassess your projects, your approach to getting what you want. Mars is the direct approach, but in Rx times it’s more introspective/internalized energy, you may not be as quick or spontaneous when taking action. You find that your instinct can be slightly off, which is why you think more/before than act. This Rx period may involve the direction you’re taking or wanting to take, future direction or goals.
Another good thing to do with Mars Rx, is to understand why you do the things you do or the action you take and the way you take it. Understand your impulses, your desire nature.
Being in fixed sign of Aquarius, the desire to break away or free yourself is strong, you can push through the waiting period or delays, hang tight particularly if you really, really want the future you’re planning on. If not so stubborn or fixed on the future plan, allow this time to be flexible and open to see what else pops up or come your way.
Mars goes back into Capricorn during the Rx, needing to reflect or re-group on the plans or goals. Capricorn, cardinal earth, rules, tradition, structure, old ways, what is or was the original plan or blueprint, you may also find that work needs to be done. It’s not starting again, like all Rx’s it’s slowing down, going over, reviewing. Something of the old and new may need to come together for the future projects. Rx phrase indicates that the process may slow down.
Watch out for emotions being bottled up, find a release for this pressure, Mars is a high, outward vibe and does not like being slowed or shut down. Frustration and impatience can happen.
Mars joins, Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter all in Rx. This also slows many situations down.
Dates for Mars conjunct South Node – 20 July, Rx + 26 Sep – direct.
Mars retrograde from June 26th – August 27th.
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius from June 26-August 12 and Capricorn from August 12-27.

Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.
The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.
The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.
Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.
Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.
Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.
Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.
VENUS in Libra trines South Node in Aquarius, sextiles North Node in Leo. Past relationship/friendships may easily, smoothly move forward or come together with help from the Nodes.
This makes things easier, when working out where this relationship/partnership stands, either in love or social connections. Helps with conversation, expressing needs and wants.
There is a blend of easy, flow working towards harmony for all.
NEW MOON in LEO, 22nd, Aug @4:28 am (aest) + it’s a solar eclipse. Sun and Moon conjunct, Mars is still close by, Trines to Saturn and Uranus.
Eclipses are powerful because they bring change, they open thing up, the universe steps in to lend a hand.
It’s a new moon in Leo, tapping into your heart of gold, finding the gold within you. It may take time, effort and courage to leap into the future path that this eclipse will take you, it’s energy hangs around for at least 6 months. Like most things it does take time to create and Leo is about creating something new for your future life.
Saturn and Uranus, (both dealing with future stuff), in a harmonious aspect to this new moon, solar eclipse, you may find that there will be some stabilizing, structure, to whatever awakening element that you may find yourself in.
Aquarius is the south node, the past, Leo is the north node future. It’s time to create a new road for yourself. Mars is pushing you along helping with courage, action you take and being brave as it’s time to leave something behind. It’s the only way.
The past few weeks have been a struggle for sure, coming out of the full moon in Aquarius also an eclipse, so things would have been shaken up and stirred, mentally and emotionally, felt messy and intense for sure. Here you may feel somewhat stronger and hopefully less stressed or traumatized by all the events which have taken place in that time. Aquarius, ruled by Uranus is the great awakener and on some level you have been too.
Stepping into the Leo energy, the north node, future path, leaping forward following your heart, with passion, strength, courage, and openness for a more creative, authentic expression of you and life. Finding your true spirit/passion/purpose and shine it out into the world. With a pure heart, integrity.
But it’s not easy shaking of all of the old stuff, picking yourself up, when you have been knocked down. Be brave, know you can face it all. With the spirit of a lion roaring from inside of you, find the gold within yourself once more, let go of the past traumas, and pain. I know it’s been one hell of a journey to get you here, and you are not done yet.
Find your gold and run with it.
