S A T U R N Stations Direct

Wednesday 9/18/19: SATURN turns DIRECT (13º 55’ Capricorn) at 1:47am PDT.

The planetary Teacher of Reality has been retrograde since April 29 (rx at 20º 31’ Capricorn) and this retrograde cycle has felt particularly perilous because of the South Node conjunction, plus Saturn is extra Saturn-y while in its home sign of Capricorn. Saturn’s retrograde dealt with themes of self-sovereignty, responsibility, and general integrity. With Saturn and the South Node linked together closely, we have been called into deeper deliberations about karmic contracts, unhealed generational trauma, unhealthy patterns that haunt and hinder us, and where we are stuck. It has been important to see where we lack the boundaries necessary for a strong foundation (in our sense of self as well as structurally in life) and where we lack maturity. We may have been confronted by the ways in which our conditioning and reactions inhibit our progress and maybe how our lack of boundaries or overuse of armor first began. During the retrograde we were invited to investigate and re-define our boundaries, commitments, and responsibilities. With Saturn direct we will hopefully integrate the insight and clarity we discovered about these issues and can now iimplement the lessons and allow for growth. It is possible to appreciate the oftentimes uncomfortable, hard-earned lessons Saturn brings us when we realize that nothing would ever get done without this planet’s influence. Saturn’s energy fortifies and solidifies, it grounds and empowers. It coallesces the will and inner reserves of faith within even the most reluctant recepient. Saturn’s shadow period will last about another three months, until December 26. And this all leads up to the much anticipated Saturn/Pluto conjunction at 22º 46’ Capricorn on January 12, 2020, a major event. 

For now, pay attention to the areas that have felt blocked for the past five months of Saturn’s retrograde period, the projects or works that have been stalled, and any changes that arise. You may feel things start to shift soon. Saturn places the obstacles in the way but also supplies the means to overcome them and make things happen. Apply what you’ve learned. This Saturn freqency will be expressed politically and socially as well as intimately in your personal life. Some have had a rougher and more intense time with this retrograde than others, so if you’re feeling bruised and humbled, or disassembled and back to an inner origin point, remember that within the confines of Saturn’s stern stare and uncompromising discipline, immense freedom is granted.
Equinox arrives soon.

L I T H A ☼ Summer Solstice

We’ve arrived at midsummer eve, an evening of flickering candles and divination, mugwort and deep dreams. June 21 is Summer Solstice (in the Northern hemisphere) or Litha - the pinnacle of the Light, the triumphant day of the Sun, the longest day and shortest night of the year. Astrologically Solstice is initiated when the sun moves into 0 degrees Cancer, which is exact at 8:54am. That same morning, dreamy Neptune in Pisces stations retrograde until November 27, and the July eclipses are coming soon. Solstice is a day of radiance and boundless light, a time to celebrate abundance and offer gratitude. The great and shining Sun reaches its perfection and fullness, and in a moment’s time we head into the dark half of the year. It will still be summer for quite some time, but we know that the light begins to wane and the darkness starts to build. This is the wheel of the year, turning once again… Our lives, when aligned with nature’s way, pulse in this same way.

We are in familiar territory; life is constantly shifting and changing, bringing beauty and challenges, and there’s always more. That is the promise of life: the promise that there will always be more, more of everything. It’s happening in our lives as well, the unfolding and releasing, invoking and establishing. There is a constant pulsing of life flowing, waxing and waning, expanding and contracting. The Great Creatrix blinking us into into being, disappearing us, and bringing us back again. Birth, death, rebirth. We have an intimate understanding of this experience living life as householders on a path, navigating the exquisite and terrifying, holding the midline of ourselves and our true spiritual practice.

Many are going through big changes at this time, some unexpected, and the enormity of the destabilization and confusion can be overwhelming. This is a time of immense amplification and acceleration. Some of you may feel like you’ve been startled and exposed, your shell cracked open, your paradigm shifting. Remember to tune into your intuition and trust. The creative intelligence of the Universe is reorganizing you and your life; this can feel uncomfortable, even unbearable, but through our dedication to our spiritual practices we are becoming more skilled at allowing every circumstance of life to take us into the primal power of our hearts. It takes time and in the midst of it it isn’t pretty, it doesn’t feel good, and sometimes there is nothing to do but let the feelings and energies wash over you.

FEEL EVERYTHING.

Try to stay rooted in your belly and bones, with your heart open in radical vulnerability, and hold on. Love yourself fiercely and allow your compassion to turn inward as a new practice. Make art with your tears and frustrations when necessary, dig your fingers and toes into the black earth to ground, and remember that you belong. More will unfold- there’s always more to the story.

On this Solstice, make a date with the Sun… bask in the warmth and relish the sunshine in the morning or mid-day or late afternoon. At sunset say goodbye to the Sun disappearing into the sea, to be reborn in the sky on Winter Solstice. The fullness of the light breaks into the beginning of the dark in its ancient way. You don’t have to craft an elaborate ritual to mark the occasion, and in fact heartfelt, contemplative presence is all that is necessary to honor this seasonal shift meaningfully. Late in the evening, light a candle and renew your commitments and offer your blessings. Bow to the golden radiance that burns brightly inside your own heart and vow to stay true to yourself.

♡,
KK

Full Moon Leo Lunar Eclipse + Sun —> Aquarius

We’ve reached the conclusion of Capricorn season. And just in time. What boundaries, lessons, structures were initiated during the sea goat’s reign, and what hard work did you put in that paid off?
The Sun enters Aquarius on Sunday with quite an accompanying bang.

This year will invite us into a deeper relationship with discipline and freedom. We will build on the Capricorn lessons learned and continue to feel Saturn’s influence strongly throughout the year. We began the year with a solar eclipse, 15º Capricorn (on January 5), and this weekend delivers the counterpart to that, with a lunar eclipse in Leo (0º) opposite the Aquarius Sun. Sunday’s full moon brings us to the final eclipse in this Leo/Aquarius cluster, with the last eclipse along the Leo/Aquarius axis having happened last August 11 at 18º Leo. Reflect on the past two years of growth and evolution, lessons and hardships.
Eclipses light up a sign and its polar opposite sign in groupings, which happen over about a two year period, and reoccur approximately every nine years. This axis was highlighted in 2008-2009, and thinking back to major changes or life event from that time can hint at possible general themes for the current Leo/Aquarius eclipse set. The house that the eclipse falls into reveals more insights into the areas you can expect a shift in. If your lunar nodes are Leo/Aquarius, or if you’re a fixed sun sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), this collection of eclipses has likely cleared and cultivated some karmic changes in life. This lunar eclipse is visible in its entirety to North and South America, Europe, and Africa.

An eclipse acts as activator, setting things in motion, but the energies and transformation will unfold over the next six months to year after the actual eclipse. It may not be clear at the time the eclipse hits what exactly will clear or manifest.

We have several eclipses each year, at new or full moons that occur near the nodal axis. The nodes are destiny points, and eclipses tend to initiate or dissolve things, bringing about big change, a new frequency, an ending and beginning. We can usually feel heightened emotions and intensified energy in the time between two eclipses, and many people feel more irritable or sensitive. The best thing to do is stay tethered to your soul’s knowing. And also to pay attention. There are other planets participating in this cosmic eclipse intensification, with the Moon, Mars and Saturn squaring off, plus Uranus, and additionally Venus and Jupiter. Mars and Saturn could fortify your drive to take decisive action on something you’ve been avoiding dealing with. A consideration with Venus and Jupiter’s conjunction is that you may feel more blessed in general, or more optimistic in romance. Revelations and resolutions often accompany an eclipse. If you can wrap yourself in empathy and compassion, steep in self-love, your heart will follow its path, and new levels of opening may begin.
Under the influence of an eclipse cycle, plenty of potential for up-leveling is available.

In your chart, look for 0º Leo and Aquarius, as well as any planets aligned there (like the sun, Venus, Moon…), to determine the potential area of life where change may occur. This will be a more powerful than usual full Moon at 0º Leo, the reset number, the degree of the fertile void. Feel empowered by this cosmic momentum to assist you in clearing what’s no longer useful and in alignment and to invoke your most treasured dream. Leo Full Moon themes generally deal with heart, pleasure, creativity, romance, drama, generosity, self-confidence. Leo reminds the importance of play, self-worth, and genuine joy.

This eclipse may be experienced as a catalyst for evolution, a change agent to shake you out of complacency, the tower card in tarot, an initiation, or an inner revolution.

If you are able, take a social media fast. Unplug. Spend some quality quiet time in contemplation, if not for the day then at least for a period of time. It’s a good time to reset. Listen closely. Hold your awareness on your deep dreams, and what you’re calling in.

Lean into the mystery.



The possibilities are endless….


Happy Aquarius season.

Capricorn Season

On Winter Solstice, December 21, the Sun left freedom-loving Sagittarius and entered stoic Capricorn. If we assign the title of the child to Leo, the mother to Cancer, then Capricorn is the father of the zodiac. Capricorn is an earth element cardinal sign, ruling the bones, joints and knees. Most Capricorns have beautiful bone structure but may deal with stiff joints and orthopedic problems. Saturn is the ruling planet, the planet of limitation, restriction, discipline, responsibility, represented by the sure-footed goat, or the ancient sea-goat. Saturn, as Father Time, provides a strong sense of the limitations as well as the value of time. The Capricorn tendency is to examine goals, organize things into steps, and determine a long-term timetable to accomplish those goals. This cardinal sign is reserved and serious, prudent and patient, disciplined and determined. Capricorn governs career, reputation, public standing, with a combination of earthy practicality and inspiring initiative. Those born under this sign are ambitious and purposeful, excel and persevere in striving, climbing, and like the goat, getting a foothold where no one else imagined one existed. 

These dark December days will soon bring us to a new numerical year, 2018 (which is an eleven), and on New Year's Day (at 6:24pm CA time) we'll have an emotional Full Moon in Cancer illuminating the heavens and pulling on our emotions. The Moon is at home in this sign, and the qualities of sensitivity, devotion, and intuition are enhanced. With the Sun in Capricorn and the Full Moon in Cancer both at 11º … and with January 1, 2018 = 11 11 … there will be an undeniable gravitas to this day. one that may call for celebrating or honoring in a non-traditional way. This Full Moon may bring an opportunity for a relationship, or a decision or revelation… this energy will feel spiked with deep feelings and determined intellect. We will consider what "home" means and what we hold most dear, as well as where we can increase dedication, fortify boundaries, evolve and mature in our closest relationships.  This New Year's Day will be a power day numerologically- we enter the power portal eleven, and maybe we can manifest some miracles.


Thank you for your readership, I am grateful for another year of writing. May we all be blessed with resilience and wisdom as we enter the threshold of a new year.
