Wishing all my clients and friends a Happy New Year!
Keywords for 2014: Challenges and opportunities intertwine.
The January 1 2014 New Moon in Capricorn was conjunct Sun conjunct Pluto square Mars all at 11 degrees and included a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses are not necessarily “bad” but they do sensitize a degree. In this case, the next major transit to 11 degrees cardinal is by Jupiter in mid-February when the anger, angst and aggravation can be forgiven.
We have already seen the dynamics of the challenging Mars square Pluto alignment on the world stage with the bombings in Moscow, signaling the potential for future problems with the Olympic Games. Oddly enough the 2014 Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi Russia on Feb 7-23 just as Jupiter rolls into place to T-Square the positions of Mars and Pluto and that eclipse. Jupiter is benevolent, even in a square, and always brings opportunities for peace.
If you have any personal planets at 11 degrees of the Cardinal Signs, however, you are advised to hold off on starting anything of great importance within 3 days of the New Year.
World unrest is also demonstrated with the heliocentric Earth/Moon T Square with Uranus and Pluto present in the New Year’s Day chart. The Uranus Pluto square is a generational aspect of change and turbulence. As you may know the Uranus -Pluto squares continue into 2015 and represent social changes on an international scale. A good example of the social change represented by this ongoing square is the fact that gay marriage is now legal in 16 of the 50 states. Uranus rules social change and Pluto rules sex. Pluto also represents big money, so banking, mortgages, insurance and taxes are undergoing transformational changes. Uranus also rules media and Pluto symbolizes power. We have all seen the power of the media grow by leaps and bounds—and change–over the past several years. More people than ever are heading to online news rather than newspapers. We are not finished yet.
Keywords for January 2014: Seeing Is Believing
In the heliocentric system, Jupiter trines Saturn on the 18th, bringing improvements and possibly even the end to problems from the past for some people.
With Jupiter and Saturn aligned there is a measure of skepticism in the world; the “seeing is believing” attitude may prevail. There is also a measure of spirituality involved because Jupiter represents Faith as well as the Future. It is time to test theories, to demand proof, to question the old, traditional patterns and see if they really work or decide if they are outworn and just a matter of habit. History repeats itself, and the Past is symbolized by Saturn, but if something didn’t work the first five or fifty times why do it again? Learn from past mistakes.
The challenges of this month boil down to a matter of learning who and what you can trust.
