FULL MOON IN CANCER 2020

FULL MOON IN CANCER

Ingress into Cancer 29 December @ 09:25pm AEDT

Exact 30 DEC 2020 @ 2:28pm AEDT 

La Luna’s shift into Cancer, her ruling sign marks many milestones and is a poignant end to the remarkable and one in a lifetime astrology of 2020. As I sit and watch her rise and compose my words, by candlelight, at her ingress into Cancer, it’s quite something to try and articulate. As Luna comes to her annual Cancer full moon on the final days of 2020, its very apparent the dramatic shift, away from the stresses and pressure that have been applying to her over the past three years; with the fresh sense of a new fertile space beginning to reveal.

Luna in Cancer, this time around is lighter and the space created by three years of Saturnian pressure and its weight on Luna whist transiting Cancer, is very apparent. This is the first full moon in Cancer or any moon cycle in Cancer, without Saturn being in opposition of, since December 2017. As she rises in front of me, in her first cycle sans Saturn, the weights previously imposed and the spaces created, is quite something to absorb and process. This is the full moon, in which the extent of this long term pressure finally reveals itself.

Saturn is hard on the moon as their intentions and purposes are opposite in technique, aims and what they are trying to achieve. Both planets being strong due to their rulership meant every cancer moon for the past three years was imposed with the burdens, constrictions, restrictions and judgements of Saturn’s cold harsh rays. Cancer lunations were heavier and more burdensome. It is at this lunation we begin to see the strengths and our hard-earnt achievements since, Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn, Dec 2017. Other observations might be a new form of softness, especially around things that used to have a harder edge. Calling it an emotional slog is an understatement. If you have inner planets or angles on the Cardinal axis of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries, you would have felt this much more.

This lunation is also the first lunation after the recent eclipse series, on the Gemini and Sagittarius axis.  The solar eclipse on 15thDecember 2020 being particularly harsh and potent. I don’t know many people who weren’t touched by its intensity and dramatic overtones. Having a nourishing full moon such as this one, to close out the eclipse season helps to reconcile some of the difficult things that may have been thrown up during this eclipse season, as well as feeling like the cosmic hug we needed.

So, as we round out 2020 and experience its closing as well as getting our strong dignified Cancer Moon’s back, this really feels like the perfect antidote in washing way 2020 and all the trauma, allowing us to re-centre and recharge emotionally after what can only be described as a life changing year. Paying attention to tending to ourselves and our communities, and focusing on care, mothering and nourishment as we enter 2021 seems like the perfect astrological hint, to help guide us into a new and very different world for 2021.

THE GREAT CONJUNCTION OF 2020: THE CHANGING OF THE GUARDS

The first Air era since 1226, which also began with Jupiter and Saturn conjoining in Aquarius.

00’30  Jupiter in Aquarius & 00’30 Saturn in Aquarius

Tuesday 22 December 2020

Exact conjunction 0645am AEDT

Look west into the evening sky after sunset, use Star Chart a free app if your unsure and want to double check you have the right planets. Can be viewed in the weeks either side of it, maximum closeness is the above dates.

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn occurring under 12 hours after the solstice is perhaps the astrological event of the year.  The Solstice which occurs at Monday 21 December 8:53pm AEDT, followed by the exact conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at 0645am Tuesday 22 December makes this a solstice for the ages. Who would expect anything less to helps to wrap up a remarkable and dynamic 2020? But in 2020 style, the 2020 conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn also offers that little bit extra!

Jupiter and Saturn, the two largest of the visible planets to the naked eye conjoin every 19.5 years, and as astrologer Austin Coppock remarked, they are the king makers of human history and its era’s; and the tent poles of history, under which we live. As human’s mark the movements of the Sun and the Moon to represent and follow time, this also extends to the Jupiter and Saturn conjunction, due to our ability to visually track it, along-side events and developments here on earth.  Humans have been observing the Jupiter and Saturn conjunctions for thousands of years. The most famous record of a reputed Jupiter Saturn conjunction are the reference to it as the Star of Bethlehem in the bible. Yes folks, the three wise men, were following the Jupiter Saturn conjunction, and it definitely created a crowning moment, no matter what your belief system is. So, these are important times, in which we currently live.

Jupiter Saturn conjunctions represent kings and empires, beginning and ends.  There cycle is predictable, due to the constancy of there synodic cycles and also represent a certain quality of time depending on what elemental era they are in.  Jupiter Saturn conjunctions have been the book markers and book end of history, for good reason, they are tried, and test and they works, as an astrological timing technique. Each era, whether it be Fire, Air, Water or Earth, all have a strong presence of the ruling element within the quality of time, to which people live. Fire ages have seen great renaissance in arts and traditions including the Italian Renaissance and Tudor England, and the Romantic era. Water eras have seen great spiritual movements etc.

The Solstice conjunction of these two kingly planets, begins and ends a 20- and 200-year cycle at the same time, beginning a cycle last seen 794 years ago. The solstice itself is a very significant day. It’s a marker of the imbalance of light and darkness and a day of which humans have literally built monuments like Stonehenge to. These two events coinciding ? Rare, like really rare.

Tomorrow’s conjunction marks the beginning of a 200-year cycle in Air, ending an earth cycle which began in 1842. Looking back across the earth age, we can see conquests, colonization of lands by organized and government mandated / centralized force. The plundering / mining of the earth for wealth and riches, which then got kept and managed in a hierarchical system and created empires because of the hoarded wealth from the earth and all its resources (i.e.: corporations/governments/institutions), we also need to mention the unscrupulous ways in which this wealth was taken.  Industrialisation also began on mass and changed the way we connect to earth and how we work with it.  Money and power was created by the complete raping and pillaging of the earth and its resources. As we leave the earth era, the earth is literally struggling for survival, due to the amount we have stripped from it and mis-managed pollution. These Grand Conjunctions will be in air signs until 2159. The last Air series of conjunctions began in 1226 (Aquarius). So let the journey begin.

When you look at the timelines of the history of these developments and the Jupiter Saturn conjunctions, the information is incredibly striking and is helpful to see where we may evolve to next. 

So, what is an air age and what does it look like? This is the first Air age in 800 years, and interestingly, tomorrows conjunction is the closest these planets get, in forming the conjunction also in 800 years, I don’t feel this is coincidence. 

Air ages are marked by disbursing of empires and wealth as well as creating more movement and freedom, through change and instability, this creates new pathways and new opportunity. Air ages have a more unpredictable flavour, through instability and a disbursing of power and control. Things we used to rely on may disappear, but through it, new alternatives are presented and ideas and intelligence/problem solving gets a real opportunity to explore and create new innovations and solutions, to the real problems we now face coming out of the earth age. 

Air ages can be marked with the term, created by Austin Coppock, as the age of “Disruptive Conquerors”. It is through these disruptive conquerors that the Air age changes and adapts the ways we live.  In previous Air ages, we had Genghis Khan create still to dates the biggest land empire created. He also establishes safety and strong connection, through the Silk Road, which fed and nourished trade, and is a trade route still in place today.  Genghis Khan did this by connecting many nomadic tribes. Nomadic tribes being tres Air, due to the constant movement in nature and quality. His conquests were the pinnacle of disruptive conquests, and he is still seen as one of the greatest conquerors in history.  We also in previous Air era’s saw the beginning of the fall of the Roman Empire after its peak. Alexander the Great, go through and connect and create the Hellenistic world, which didn’t last long after he died, but it still created information and connected to countries, who through the merging of ideas and information shared, through this Hellenistic world, we still look to today, as a source of information, and knowledge sharing, I’m looking at astrologers, with this one.

Through this disruption, we see more information and trade created, as the channels open up in different ways, and the control mechanism change. Looking forwards to what this might mean for us now, the internet and technology is definitely opening up the ways we live. The pandemic showed us how adaptable we are to remote learning or working from home. We no longer need to work or learn in centralized places. Notable news to come out recently, is the huge surges in Bit Coin values, a revolutionary digital currency, which is hard to ignore as we enter the Air age. We have seen the beginnings of lab grown meat becoming available to on mass and rise in popularity and availability, which reflects how technology is modifying the food chain.  Socially, technology has bridged the gap, in allowing us to connect to people, when we physically couldn’t.  When it comes to power and control, we can’t ignore the increased use of surveillance and drones, to track people and their movements. This will certainly increase. How is most of this conducted? Through the air waves, internet or literally in the air.

The previous Jupiter conjunction was in Taurus and 2000 (the last of the Earth cycle) and previous to this it was in Libra 1980/1981 (the first dip into the Air Cycle). Both these conjunctions were ruled by Venus. Consumerism and materialism really took off and Venus put pleasure and aesthetics front and centre for the past 40 years. Now we move into an Aquarius conjunction, we enter both an Air and a Saturn ruled conjunction. We will be looking at a more conservative and less pleasure oriented 20-year Jupiter Saturn cycle; perhaps to help solve the very pressing problems we face as we exit the Earth era and we look to solutions to the problems it has caused. 

The Great Conjunction, which is exact tomorrow following the Solstice, is marking the beginning of a new age, we are in a stage of transition and it will take a while for us to settling into it or work out, what real direction this is taking us. However, we do have the wonderful opportunity to watch them as they conjoin in the sky. We are fortunate enough to have the best view in 794 years or since 1226, coincidently, the last time we were in an Air age. Look west at nightfall and admire, being able to see such a momentous and historical moment, as we look to the planets and the future, they might herald. 

Enjoy! 

FINAL HOURS OF SATURN IN CAPRICORN

Less than 24 hours remains of Saturn in Capricorn for the next 28 years. Probably one of the harshest transits, tending towards highlighting the cool harsh realities of time, consequence, commitments and perseverance even in the most challenging conditions, Saturn In Capricorn is a cool and hard task master.

December 2017 – December 2020 is a good time to reflect over now as another transit of Saturn in Capricorn completes. Making sure u make strong commitments to yourself and your communities for its next 28 year cycle around the zodiac. Saturnian rewards are slow in revealing themselves and heavy in consequence; if not taken seriously and the necessary ground work put in.

The Moon conjoining Saturn as it leaves Capricorn, perfect for embodying these new commitments and personal contracts, as the clock is about to strike its own form of midnight. The lessons have been laid, now it time to walk forwards.

As we get set to bid you adieu, I would like to thank you Saturn, for all the cool hard challenges I have had to face and thank you for helping me address them head on, no matter what forms they presented to me in. Signed a late degree Capricorn Sun.

SATURN IN CAPRICORN: WALKING FROM THE DARKNESS

NICK CAVE : Still from ‘Idiot Prayer’

SATURN IN CAPRICORN (21 DECEMBER 2017 –18 DECEMBER 2020)

14 days remain with Saturn in Capricorn.  Saturn’s transit of it’s home or domicile sign has been influencing the skyscapes since 21 December 2017. Since then Saturn has been stronger and more stern than usual, due to his rulership in Capricorn. A supercharged Saturn likes to strip back, boosts conservatism and consequences of actions Et cetera.

With conservatism and consequence being the plate du jour for the past three years and hard work with sacrifice being our new drug of choice, whether you were initially willing or not, Saturn in Capricorn has not been without it small rewards. Saturn rewards strong focus, over long periods of time and absorbing the cold hard reality checks. Saturn likes dealing with the hard and messy stuff, by cutting away, all that does not fit, or all that is not fit for purpose, sans any emotional consideration or attachment.

Saturn’s servings aren’t always pleasant, and they aren’t always palatable, which is probably why we only get a dose of Saturn in Capricorn every 28 – 30 years.  Saturnian realization’s arn’t those that come lightly. Death tends to be more prominent both physically and metaphorically and is a signifier as to when Saturn is strong in transit or strongly placed during a period of time.  Saturn nickname old father time, often pictured as death or with a scythe, is something we face more prominently when Saturn transits Capricorn.

As Saturn soaks up the last days of his transit in Capricorn, solidifying the last of his lessons or impacts, for the next 28 years, it’s a good time to reflect on the lessons , re-routes, ambitions, the losses, the grief, the depression, the reality checks, the small incremental wins and what has survived outside all the suffering of the past 3 years.

Saturn as it leaves Capricorn; begins to perfect its aspect to Jupiter. Creating what Astrologers refer to as the “Great Conjunction”. The “Great Conjunction” as Astrologer Austin Coppock has outlined, is one the main timekeepers for humanity’s ability to keep time and records, outside the rising of the Sun each day, and the Lunar cycles and phases. Saturn Jupiter conjunctions can be seen as an extension of the astronomical clock for measuring time as humans, marking consistently 20 year, 200 year or 800 year cycles. This Saturn cycle, sees his exit from Capricorn, coinciding with the beginning of all three new cycles of time at once with this great conjunction with Jupiter.

Saturn moving out of Capricorn, and its meeting Jupiter, begins a new 20, 200-year cycle, that was last seen 800 years ago simultaneously. Not a bad punch to leave on for old father time as he exits a sign of such strength and renewal. The perfection of Saturn or “Old Father Time” to leave Capricorn and then begin these’s cycle on the Summer/Winter Solstice, shows that for all his coldness and sternness, Saturn isn’t afraid to try new things and continues to play with our perceptions and experience of what time is and how it impacts us.

Now is a great time to look over the difficulties, reality checks, the hard work, the lessons, our relationship with time and ageing along with what we wish to plan and achieve as small yet realistic goals over the next 28 year Saturn cycle. Saturn leaves a place of strength and authority, so this is an important cycle that is resetting. Things will clearly be different in 28 years time, But the aim is to make it better and to plan out the best road forwards, minimising the aggressive consequences to our actions. Now we need to start choosing our decisions more wisely and think about what we can cut back, and sustain, over longer periods of time. Climate change and sustainable living seems to be an obvious and urgent part of this narrative, as we come to the end of 2020 and this Saturn in Capricorn cycle.

To be honest, its a transit people probably wont miss, but its one we need to keep in the back of our minds. Old Father Time never forgets. As Saturn continues his way in to Aquarius, a sign Saturn also rules, we look to the differences of the two signs and how Saturn can rule two signs with such different significations and purposes. In Aquarius the rules are different and the topography very different, as we move from the dizzying heights and lonely terrain we have been navigating in Capricorn, into a space of vision and aspirations with more inclusiveness and collectable accountability. More on this soon, along with the impending Jupiter Saturn conjunction. But for now, Saturn, as you sit upon my Sun for the third time this year……. I bid you Adieu. Those with heavy Capricorn placements, for example Sun, Moon or Ascendant, can finally sigh in relief, as our once in 28 year lessons in responsibility, action and consequence begins to fade into a new experiences.

DECEMBER 2020 MONTHLY HOROSCOPES

Madonna in the film ” Desperately Seeking Susan” 1985

December’s astrology is just as captivating and powerful as the astrology that opened the year. January’s Saturn Pluto conjunction brought with it some powerful events, which follow strongly the patterns of previous Saturn Pluto conjunction’s. Archetypal Astrologer Richard Tarnas describes the Saturn Pluto conjunctions as ‘Cycles of Crisis and Contraction’.

December brings us the tail end of the year as well as the ‘Great Conjunction’ of Jupiter and Saturn. More to come on this separately in a new post, however December’s Jupiter Saturn conjunction, begins both a new 20 and 200 year cycle at the same time. Add in Eclipse season and a solstice to the mix, its is a huge month.

LUNAR ECLIPSE 2020 : WHEN THE ROYALS GET ECLIPSED

LUNAR ECLIPSE (Gemini & Sagittarius Axis)

30 NOVEMBER 2020 AEDT 

November 30th (AEDT) sees the second full moon in a calendar month, often referred too as a blue moon. Blue moons are actually relatively common, more common than most of the large-scale planetary alignments of 2020. 

This Full Moon is also a Lunar eclipse,  opening our eclipse season on the new Gemini / Sagittarius axis which began in Gemini season earlier this year. 

The Lunar eclipse of 30 November, as it’s a penumbral lunar eclipse, only a shadow will hit the moon, rather than the regalia of a total lunar eclipse. However, astrologically and magically, an eclipse is still an eclipse. Although not as visually spectacular as the 26 May 2021 Total Lunar Eclipse, this eclipse still has a bit bite, thanks to the conjunction of 2 of the 4 royal fixed stars.

The Sun conjoins Antares and the full Moon conjoins Aldebaran, for this eclipse, giving it a very volatile and aggressive mars like quality. Both Antares and Aldebaran are out for conquest. As these alignments are on an eclipse axis, there is a blurring or shadowing effect. 

Things are very much not as they seem. Unseen actions and power moves are at play, so drawing down this energy is potentially problematic. This is not a full moon to be playing with, unless you like to bring unexpected power plays into your life. 

Resting and staying hydrated during the actual eclipse is recommended along with keeping a low profile. Eclipse can be blind spots or quickening of events, having Antares and Aldebaran being brought into the mix, gives this eclipse some real fire power. 

Re-entering the eclipse season of 2020, it seems appropriate to have such potent points activated as we begin the wrapping up of 2020.  Watch this space, and be mindful of what you choose to do with this energy. 

Eclipse start 6:32pm     Middle/Max : 8:42pm    End  10:53pm AEDT

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 2020

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

SUNDAY 15 NOV 16:08 AEST 

The new moon in Scorpio is kind of an interesting one ! Mars the ruler of this lunation, is recently stationed direct. Although lacking in pace, mars is operating in the right direction and is able to build some forward motion, much like the new moon. Mars recently direct offers a positive influence after so much intensity that was created with its three months retrograde. This mars ruled new moon, offers a nice little resting/restart point. 

The New Moon has a lovely sextile to Jupiter, giving some optimism around capricornian things such as money or benefits from people in power or authoritarian roles such as workplace bosses or those who have power and influence. Be open to assistance from those in positions of authority over the next two weeks, there might be a nice helping hand. Or you take on that role and position to assist others, with your own ability to influence and help others, through your own powers and privledges.

Mercury is opposite Uranus in Taurus. Mercury sharing the same space as the new moon in Scorpio, give a little boost to mercantile things such as trade, business, perhaps writing and communication. Uranus is the unseen opportunity or idea. Be open to the unexpected opportunity of exchange.

Overall, it’s an interesting new moon, with some really nice areas for opportunity and expansion, especially as the moon waxes towards its fullness. Keeping in mind this is the last lunation before eclipse season begins. So, this is the last moon we have that isn’t impacted by eclipses for the next few lunar cycles. The new moon in Scorpio, has some nice things going on with it, so feel free to dip your toes into it and see what transpires:)

MARS IN ARIES 2020 : THE STATION DIRECT

Photographer: Camilla Akran 

MARS STATION DIRECT IN ARIES 

11:34am AEST

Today Mars the red planet, stations direct after three months of retrogradation in Aries the sign it rules, and this is great news! 

Mars, retrogrades every two years and it’s a planet that isn’t particularly fond of doing so either. Retrogrades slow down and imbed Mars, a planet whose primary significations are about motion, fast pace and action. When retrograde this pace and action slows down, it causes frustration and friction due to the lack of momentum. Such frustrations can turn inward as the environment around you slows down. Mars is powerful in Aries, due to its rulership; this coupled with the fact that mars also retrogrades least in Aries out of all of the zodiacal signs, had made the last three months particularly stressful.

Mars turned retrograde September 10thand it’s at this time reflections or struggles became more apparent or deepened. Perhaps there were other things agitating situations that you weren’t previously aware of.

Re looking at your personal power, strength or what rouses anger could have been areas for redress. Depending on where this is occurring in your personal chart. Anyone with personal planets in Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn, would have been more heavily impacted by this Mars Retrograde. Collectively Mars putting strain on Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto in late Capricorn has definitely created an element of tension, that has continued to simmer over the second half of 2020. Things have been on the verge and felt like they were going to get lit and exploding at any moment.  Keeping a coolness around all the heat anger around us, has definitely been a way of life and a state of being, since Mars entered Aries on June 29th.

Mars turning direct today, does make things more erratic than usual, but the good news is, we are moving to a place where we can finally gain some traction and get things moving again with a more assured sense of what direction we wish to direct our energy. The other benefit of this movement forwards of Mars, is being able to mould our tools in a sharper and more effective fashion. Mars finally leaves Aries after 6 months (instead of the usual two months) in early January, and it is at that time, we will feel the heat turned down just a little, as we move away from the tectonic shifts of 2020’s astrology, with more tools and aids at our disposal. 

NOVEMBER 2020 MONTHLY HOROSCOPES

Nick Cave – Photographer Unknown

November opens with a Full Moon in Taurus conjoining unpredictable and innovate Uranus early on the 1st. Venus is freshly arrived into Libra, one of her ruling signs. Helpful to begin with, but become more challenging in the middle of the month, thanks to her connections to the much spoken about Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter line up.


Mercury, in the first week of November completes it retrograde cycle, by stationing direct in late Libra and goes back into Scorpio. Integrating insights from its time in I decan of Scorpio and III decan of Libra. Mercury is traversing the tricky terrain of late cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), who are having lots of pressure applied in the 2nd half of 2020. Mercury is also sounding out the the degree’s points of the fixed signs (Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus and Leo) who will be welcoming in some serious Jupiter and Saturn energy this December.

Mars, the ruler of Scorpio turning direct mid-month after a volatile 3 month retrograde of Aries. This is huge and begins the completion phase of a tricky 6 months. Strong and volatile Mars interfering with Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto, is never fun, but this Mars station, helps to end the cardinal crush siege, which has been a dominant theme of 2020.

The intro of Eclipse season begins on November 30th, with a blue moon lunar eclipse for Australia and New Zealand (if you’re into putting lots of words in front of your lunation’s). The 2nd full moon of the calendar month rounds out November also opens the 2nd eclipse season of 2020. A visible lunar eclipse for those folks in Australia and New Zealand, seems like a fitting end to what can only be described as a ‘once in a life time’ astrology of 2020.

A breakdown of November’s main astrological features through the signs.

Aries / Aries Rising

Mars shifts back into direct motion on the 15th  which is your cue to celebrate.  Recent delays or setbacks have helped realign your relationship to power and strength, making you more agile and adept.  Mid-November is when you finally feel the traction and mobility, in being able to assert yourself. At this time Mercury reveals how to make the best use of opportunities resources offered by others.  

Taurus / Taurus Rising

November opens with a full moon in Taurus, commencing a two week period of innovation and individuation, thanks to the moon’s connection to Uranus. Uranus delivers opportunities that are hard to turn down or steers you in a slightly different direction. Mercury completes it retrograde on the forth, giving more clarity to your business and personal relationships, which lightens the mood and makes for an enjoyable party season. 

Gemini / Gemini Rising

By mid-month, Mars no longer stirs up trouble in your social sector meaning your community and networking sector are less volatile, creating less stress and friction. For two weeks, a full moon in contact with Uranus, helps clarify and innovate feelings that lays beneath the surface. Venus hits the right notes by reconnecting to things and people who raise your spirits and help lighten the mood. 

Cancer / Cancer Rising

Mars stationing direct is a big deal mid-month; finally the load is lessened and the atmosphere lightens up. Your career and reputation sector shows you off as being strong, and agile, able to power through any issues or confrontations. Mercury reveals new information about how to develop and reconnect to your passion projects or presents people who can assist with turning your passions into a reality.

Leo / Leo Rising

Rebooting your belief systems, thanks to the stirrings of Mars in your ninth solar house, isn’t light work but by mid-November the reboot is complete, just in time for party season. Mercury also finishes gathering its data in your most private sphere, which has strengthen and deepened your roots and resolve. By November’s end, Leo’s are more value aligned, stronger and more centred, making you at the heart of the party scene.

Virgo / Virgo Rising

By mid-month Mars stops agitating the waters of your external money sector, helping to light things up. Finally, there is some forward motion and a clearer picture of your  finances, resources and investments. Venus, gracing your earned money sector creates some light relief and may offer some very appealing treats and rewards, after a very challenging 2020.
