Hello lovely ones and I hope 2018 is treating you well so far!
I have succumbed this weekend to the dreaded lurgy which has been going around.
Being sick is never nice and being sick at the start of a New Year is even less nice, especially when you have lots of plans which require you to be on best form and not sick/snotty! (
On that note I am launching a podcast and hope to record my first episode as soon as I am better.
Stay tuned, you will get it here first before it goes public and I fully intend to record Member only podcasts too!
Back to being sick and slow, I always try and look for the silver lining in any cloud and one of the things that slowing down is helping me do is to really create the foundation for 2018.
By slowing down I am able to do the kind of work which does not create immediately tangible results, but undoubtedly has an energetic impact and sets the opening scene for my 2018 movie.
Which leads me nicely onto Saturn in Capricorn, the cosmic activity this week and next week's Capricorn New Moon.
As you know, Saturn is now in Capricorn where he will stay until March 2020, after which he moves into Aquarius and then will do a mini retro transit later in 2020 back into Capricorn.
For all intents and purposes come the Spring Equinox 2020, each of us will be birthing a whole new chapter in the Capricorn ruled parts of our charts/lives and in terms of our careers, status and what we define as success for ourselves.
Today sees a ton of action in the Capricorn ruled part of the zodiac.
The Sun, Pluto and Venus join together in Capricorn making a rare alignment which won't be experienced again for a very long time.
This represents consciousness, focus and the very essence of who we are (the Sun), transformation and rebirth (Pluto) and love, creativity and abundance (Venus) all coming together and offering us the opportunity to plant the seeds of miraculous change in our lives.
In preparation for next Tuesday's Capricorn New Moon, and as part of your Saturn in Capricorn alchemy, I am asking each of you to look at both the areas of life ruled by Capricorn in your unique chart (so read below for your sun sun and rising sign if you know the latter) and the areas of life which Capricorn rules in the natural zodiac, so, ambition, success, career, status and think carefully about the following.
1) What is the current state of affairs in the Capricorn ruled part of my life? Focus on the general status quo, abundance, creativity, harmony, love (doesn't have to be romantic love, can be platonic, divine love!)
2) What is the essence of what I want to create in the Capricorn ruled part of my life?
3) What do I need to allow to decay, die and let go of in these areas of life?
4) How can I be reborn/experience a rebirth in these areas of life?
If you can answer these questions this week it will clear the ground for you to prep carefully for next Tuesday's Capricorn New Moon which will mean that you can achieve significant results by the Capricorn Full Moon in six months time.
Because, here is the thing (and why I used the image I did, for this post!), yes, the Saturn in Capricorn transit ends in Spring 2020, and yes Saturn is notorious for delays and taking his good 'ole time to reward us.
But, Saturn loves it when we work according to his rules of conduct.
He loves us getting our act together, lining up our ducks in a row, focusing and working hard.
And he rewards that too.
So, you don't need to be waiting until March 2020 for a big shift.
You can experience one in six months.
And with that kind of momentum imagine what you can manifest by March 2020?!
Yep, it's exciting!
More next week for the New Moon but for now refresh your memory if you need to of the areas of life ruled by Capricorn for you by re-reading the Saturn in Capricorn Zodiac guide and get to answering the questions above.
