WEEK OF JANUARY 14, 2019

UNDER THE INFLUENCE

This week, we are basking in the after glow of the Jupiter/Neptune square which was exact Sunday.

The planet Neptune is associated with the desire for transcendence. Jupiter is faith and optimism but also over-inflation.

Think: Cotton-candy clouds, siren calls, romanticism, glamour, rose-coloured glasses, the deep faith that everything will work out, trust at the cost of a more pragmatic approach, over-inflation of dreams and wishes, magic, spirituality, visions and dreams, being aware of synchronicities and omens…

At its worst this aspect can correlate with a strong divine discontent, reality not meeting the expectations we have for ourselves and our specialness or just not seeing reality for what it really is. There can be a tendency for denial, bad choices and ignoring painful truths…

Neptune is often associated with drugs, alcool and substance abuse or getting involved in relationship scenarios where you idealize the person as oppose to seeing who they truly are.

Jupiter square Neptune this year, will be super good for artists, magician and witches as it can be a time of heightened inspirations and cosmic downloads…🔮

Neptune is like an exit door into a fantastical world that has no bottom and Jupiter will come to amplify that.

Something to keep in mind this year as there will be 3 Jupiter-Neptune squares aspect that will colour 2019.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?

Depending on your natal chart, you might be picking up on the other big vibe of the moment which is ALL of the heavy-handed action happening in Capricorn. (Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, Sun and South Node in Capricorn)

The sign of Capricorn with its ruler Saturn at home means that we might be hyper conscious of:

Time, time passing, getting older, limitations, responsibilities and obligations, the process of aging (think of that FB trend over the weekend).

There can also be a sort of ”status anxiety” and fears around money, authority, superiority/inferiority complex.

Our society puts a strong emphasis on material success. However, we are now in the midst of sweeping changes in regards to materialism and what it means to ‘’make it in the world’’ and be ‘’secure’’.

People are coming to the realization that consumerism and the capitalist model is destroying life in Earth. That perhaps, a big house, a secure job and 2 cars in the driveway is more of a burden than anything else. It is also creating a lot of anxiety as we adjust to this new awareness.

The deep stirrings of Pluto transiting through Capricorn is removing the false ideas we have about success.

Dissatisfaction will continue to grow louder as we approach the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January 2020.

While this unsustainable system continues to crumble, it is important to remain aware, that the best inversement you can make is towards your health and strength.

Be pragmatic about what is possible for you this year and start working towards your goals whatever they might be.

Throw your fears of inadequacy into the garbage and stop comparing yourself or competing with others. Root down from within.

 


FULL MOON IN LEO

On Sunday, the Sun enters the sign of Aquarius and less than 24 hours later we have a FULL MOON at 0º LEO/LUNAR ECLIPSE which is the last one on the Leo/Aquarius axis.

For people with important planets in either Aquarius or Leo, the last 2 years might of brought some important changes and now this is sort of like a culmination of that process coming to a close.

2019 in so many ways is the beginning of a totally NEW ERA and this will become apparent as we progress through the year.

THERE IS NO TURNING BACK so keep moving forward, keep hustling and stay true to yourself!
