Power of eclipses

“Astrology is a language.  If you understand this language, the sky speaks to you.” —Dane Rudhyar
It is a New Year, we might have made resolutions—ours to break or keep. I did not write annual horoscopes for the year. After penning those for the past 20 years I felt I needed something different. My resolution is to write a short piece about astrology and the sky each day; taking my cue from the Julia and Julie project... Astrology is so much more than the daily, monthly and yearly horoscopes. We each have a unique horoscope with planets, houses and the intricate web of connections between them. The Moon is waning in the sky, and we have a solar eclipse on Tuesday. My Astronomy Calendar states that this partial eclipse requires special glasses if you gaze upon it in Europe. Astrologically speaking, the eclipse takes place at 13°Capricorn39'. That is the degree of the Sun for those born January 4. We are in the Eclipse season, we had one just prior to Xmas. People still worry about eclipses and what omens they carry. Typically we can count on Mother Nature to reveal her awesome power; the weather has been extreme around the globe—floods in Australia, severe snow storms on the East coast of North America, and devastating rains in California. Around Vancouver, Canada the weather is seasonal so at the moment we are the lucky ones.

 

This year Canada Post is releasing twelve stamps to celebrate astrology. The first one will be released at the Spring Equinox, when the Sun moves into Aries. This day, for the past two decades, has been the International Astrology Day. It is the beginning of the astrological year. The twelve stamped collector envelopes can be arranged to form the natural wheel astrologers have been using for thousands of years. How exciting—the year of Astrology. We already had one for astronomy. Not that long ago astronomers had to be conversant in astrology and naturally vice a versa. Read more about at the Canada Post site and make a note to pick up some of the stamps, which are the permanent kind. It is always a limited edition, I am glad the gals at the Fort Langley post office gave me a heads up about this.

I have been working on designing a brochure for the Fraser Valley Astrological Guild. We have our North Node at Tuesday's eclipse degree. We are celebrating our 20th anniversary in October and have invited Robert Hand to present two talks and a workshop. It is a big event for us and naturally anyone interested in astrology is welcome to sign up for it.

 

Eclipses have a 19 year cycle, thus the most recent and the upcoming eclipse repeat from the change of year 1991-1992, before that December of 1972 and January 1973 and prior to that it was December 1953 and January 1954. I had reason to look at Oprah Winfrey's horoscope; she was born in January 1954, this eclipse degree was her prenatal eclipse. She just launched her own TV network, what a great way to use the power of an eclipse!

When we make choices about life, we become better at life. Most of us wonder through life on auto-pilot, following the well-beaten path. Astrology, I have found, is a powerful tool to help us grow into our potential. Thoughts are powerful. With this powerful New Moon choose to make resolutions you wish to keep—not for the benefit of others but for yourself. Set goals you want to achieve. Take a moment to meditate (read contemplate) what you desire out of life and this year. I am planning to.

Embracing Change

This year I am planning to pay more attention to the ever changing sky. To that end, I opted for an astronomy calendar. On a clear night I have a beautiful view directly due North. We live under a flight path, not just planes but birds, flocks of which often cover rooftops and the patches of grass that pass for backyards. Earth is at perihelion today, that means closest to the Sun for the year. Reality meets inspiration and/or divinity. Wonder if the Epiphany was assigned a day close to this annual event to coincide with our so ancient pagan practises of paying attention to the stars and natural phenomena. Epiphany takes place on the 6th. I realize it is a religious Christian observance, however, I remember a tradition of not clearing the Xmas decorations until that date, which is also known as the 12th day—thirteenth in Sweden. In Finland it is a statutory holiday that ends the seasonal celebrations. It's been around since the second century of the current era.

 

I live at the 49 th parallel, and here—naturally also farther North—the Sun does not climb very high during the winter. The Sun is gaining strength, the days, which belong to the Sun, are increasing in length. This began with the Winter Solstice on December 21; we also had a total lunar eclipse that day. I talked about eclipses a little bit in yesterday's commentary. We will have five more eclipses this year, not all of them are featured in the news.

 

The Sun is travelling through the sign of Capricorn as it does every year at this time. Astrologically speaking Capricorn has to do with career, obligations, reality and working toward our goals, slowly and steadily with clearly defined plans. It is ironical how in the past, at least in the Northern climes, we associated this with no growth of crops but learning to live using what we had harvested and made during the Autumn. Nowadays, we experience that cold shower of reality when the credit card bills arrive and we get our income slips for taxation purposes realizing how little we earned or how much we owe...

 

Sun in Capricorn, is an ideal time to make annual plans—only five—you need to be able to count them off with the fingers of one hand my Capricorn friends and clients declare. Which reminds me, I need to fire off cards to them—Capricorns do love tradition.

 

Venus is in Scorpio for another few days, as she has been for several months now—since September in fact. Because Venus does this only at eight year intervals, it is significant. We are given four months to ponder what is truly important and in the final days we find the resolve to make our choices. We will have this kind of intense Venus in Scorpio energy once again, eight years from now. It will begin in September of 2019! Venus is visible as a morning star about an hour before sunrise in the south-eastern sky. Venus is about to reach her greatest elongation from the Sun...

solar returns

 

What does the year hold for me?

Every year I post horoscopes for each of the signs.These are based on the Sun sign. Did you know we each have an entire horoscope of our own, which defines who we are and what our strengths and weaknesses are.

 

A great birthday present is a Solar Return Report; the Sun returns to the same place it was at your birth once a year and that chart tells you about what the year ahead has in store, specifically for you.

 

You do need the time of birth in addition to the date and place for these reports.

This report by Stephanie Clement integrates what Saturn promises in your life; and how and when it delivers on that promise.

 

Excerpt about the effect of Saturn return from this insightful report:

 

"The time of the Saturn return is good for clearing out the dead wood of a stagnant career, old relationships, and other things that are no longer useful to you. This is also a time of beginning. After any repairs to your life that seem essential, you can take off in a new direction. If you like where you find yourself, you enter into life's activities with renewed vigor. Finally, you put down deep roots that support you through the next 28 to 30 years successfully.

During this transitional period you learn a lot about yourself, about the people close to you, and about your long-term goals and desires. You test out the methods you have learned in the past and refine them as you go along. You may find (or recall) yourself looking into yourself . What have you personally accomplished? What have you had to endure, through no fault of your own, but because of circumstances? Where are you in terms of goals you may have set for yourself long ago? Are they even important now? "

Review of Saturn's Promise written by professional astrologer Stephanie Clement by Anne. This report looks at your life from birth to old age and all in between. It's the first of its kind, I am excited about this one as it addresses real astrology and real lives—yours.

This is a must read for those who want to understand how their life's journey unfolds.
