Venus and Jupiter: A cosmic affair.
We are preparing for a beautiful cosmic affair with Venus and Jupiter. Venus is the lesser benefic, and it represents value, possessions, income, love, partnering, creativity, and beauty. Jupiter is the Grand Benefic, and it represents expansion, abundance, optimism, opportunity, travel, adventure, and learning. Jupiter is currently in the sign that it rules, which is the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius.
Jupiter in Sagittarius seeks to learn empirically and experience life in the biggest way possible. Venus and Jupiter meet up on November 24, 2019 at 8:33 am EST, and the energy looms for a few days afterwards. The two conjoin at 28 degrees of Sagittarius.
Jupiter remains in Sagittarius until December 3, 2019 when it enters the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn, and it will be there through December 20, 2020. Therefore, we only have a little more time to enjoy the magnetizing aspects of Jupiter in Sagittarius. This is a very auspicious cycle, which sets the tone for the next twelve years, as Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to orbit.
This is a perfect time to honor the blessings of Jupiter and use this energy to express gratitude, create, love, manifest, hope, and heal. Venus is so creative, and Jupiter is so adventurous that I feel this energy has limitless potential if you can suspend disbelief for just a few moments; as you open yourself to believing just about anything that opens your heart.
Venus and Jupiter meet up at The Galactic Center, which is between 26 and 28 degrees of Sagittarius. This is an area of unlimited source, unconscious wounds that can be healed, psychic downloads, and infinity. There are no limits today.
Take time to meditate on what makes you happy, and write down intentions of what you want this new twelve year cycle to entail. 2020 is going to have incredible cycles, which demand that each of us takes stock in the area of life that needs consolidating, restructuring, and lessons learned.
The Capricorn stellium is about restriction in one sense; yet, it really is about building something, which could become big in your life down the line. Structures in our lives will collapse, and karma will waiting for you at the door. Big change is rampant, and hard work will be rewarded. Fated events will occur that are beyond control; yet, how you handle things will be completely within your control.
It is time to rejoice in a beautiful pairing, which make possibility seem possible. Venus and Jupiter dance in the sky and remind you that there are heavy choices and decisions ahead in the very near future; yet, it is essential to tap into appreciation, love, and art. Kindness, laughter, beauty, and happiness will buoy your spirit through a year of much restructuring and transformation.
There is a new moon that occurs just two days after on November 26, 2019 at 10:06 am EST at 4 degrees of Sagittarius. This new moon falls in the twelfth house of dreams and imagination. This New Moon chart has Sagittarius ascendant, which means Jupiter is the ruler of the chart. Jupiter will still at the Galactic Center at 28 degrees of Sagittarius and falls in the first house of new beginnings.
There is a stellium of planets in Capricorn in the first house bringing a lot of action to this new moon chart: Venus at 0 degrees of Capricorn and at the world axis; The South Node of Karma at 8 degrees of Capricorn; Saturn, the planet of lessons, at 17 degrees of Capricorn; Pluto, the planet of transformation and empowerment, at 21 degrees of Capricorn. This New Moon gives a preview of a very cardinal year of action, decisions, and accountability.
The New Moon is a good time to set intentions and to do The Law of Abundance. The planet of hope rules this new moon chart, so it is an excellent time to do more manifesting and work with this blessing while you can. Take a blank check and date it for November 26, 2019. Print out your name where it says, “Pay to the order of,” and then leave the small numeric box blank. Print on the next line, “PAID IN FULL.” At the bottom where you normally sign your name, print “THE LAW OF ABUNDANCE. ” I wish you much luck and happiness.
New Moon of Aquarius: The first new moon of a decade.
I sit down to write today’s column and realize that this month feels like several bunched into one. We began the year in Eclipse season with a remarkable stellium of planets in Capricorn.
The Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn represents many things: karma, responsibility, accountability, boundaries, integrity, and structures. Capricorn also rules time and impresses on us how little of it we really have.
At the end of 2019, there was a partial South Node Eclipse at 4 degrees of Capricorn. Although a Solar eclipse is a new moon, there is a releasing aspect to it with the South Node conjunct the sun and the moon. Many exits and endings have occurred since end of fall.
The month of January initiated a new year and a new decade.
There was a Lunar Eclipse on January 10, 2020 at 20 degrees of Cancer. This Eclipse set off where Saturn, the planet of karmic lessons, stationed retrograde on April 30, 2019. It was also where Pluto, the planet of transcendence, stationed direct on September 18, 2019.
See how those stories are carrying forward now in light of this Eclipse trigger. What have you put to rest from last spring and last fall, and to what have you given more form and commitment? Uranus, the wild child of the zodiac, stationed direct on the day of the Lunar Eclipse. This made feel like two eclipses in one.
The big news of the month was the Saturn/Pluto conjunction that occurred just two days after the Lunar Eclipse. They met up at 22 degrees of Capricorn and were conjunct the sun and Mercury. This helped to translate the Saturn/Pluto story that marked a new 36 year cycle. The last time these two paired up was in November of 1982 in Libra. They last met up in Capricorn in 1517.
Saturn and Pluto are the traditional malefics. When they meet up, it is a cosmic renovation. The lessons that come up now are not to be ignored. Saturn and Pluto will not be conjunct again this year, but this alignment marks a new story for a new decade.
How will you work with integrity and heed the lessons? Are you going to renovate and repair, or are you going to ignore? Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will not allow you to hide from your lessons. So much to take in a relatively brief; but, so much to work with in terms of achievement, accomplishment, and self renovation. There are no planets retrograde in the sky, which means they are at full capacity. Charge forward with cardinality towards that you wish to accomplish.
The Sun is now in the fixed air sign of Aquarius; as is Mercury, the planet of information. Mercury clashed with Uranus on January 18, 2020 and brought some surprises. Yesterday, the Sun in Aquarius clashes with Uranus in Taurus and brought some more unexpected news. At present, the moon is in Capricorn and is translating the tales of the recent Eclipses and the Saturn/Pluto meetup. This is heavy stuff.
I heard a few unexpected stories yesterday. I choose to share one to honor both Manhattan and a native, who embodied its spirit. I discovered last night that a former neighbor of mine had passed away unexpectedly of Cancer in November, and that his wife had passed away only a few months before.
His name was Peter, and he owned a piano store in Hell’s Kitchen. He was a local business owner and a true New Yorker. I did not know him very well. As two native New Yorkers, we shard that familiar nod on the street. It’s hard to explain, but I felt warmth and humor from someone that I would speak to for just a few minutes.
Bondy owned a small piano store that is also a dying breed in a city that needs much reconstruction and repair. So many barren storefronts these days, but he remained a thriving small business on a side street. Every time someone like Bondy dies, a piece of its history dies.
We are finishing up Eclipse season, as we prepare for the New Moon in Aquarius that occurs on January 24, 2020. As the moon in Capricorn brings more information to light, it is time to plan full action with your goals, your lessons, and the new life you are renovating and reconstructing.
Venus is exalted in Pisces and forms a beautiful sextile to Jupiter in Capricorn today. This helps to bring hope to that you wish you create and manifest. The New moon falls at 4 degrees of Aquarius on January 24, 2020 at 4:42 pm EST. This New Moon is a time to set intentions and initiate new beginnings. This New Moon falls in the seventh house of relationships and forms a square to Uranus. A lot of new relationships and connections will begin with this New Moon energy.
However, in light of what has occurred recently, this new moon will also bring some unexpected breakups and shakeups. Uranus brings unexpected change. Factor in that Mars in Sagittarius forms a square to Venus, the planet of relationships, on January 26, 2020. This can bring friction and fighting. The following day, Venus meets up with Neptune in Pisces. A lot of secrets, deceit, and information will get uncovered.
There will inevitably be some breakups and endings, as Neptune can dissolve things. However, the higher form of Neptune rules dreams and imagination. Tap into what you want to manifest in 2020. This new moon in Aquarius wants you to connect with new people, learn new things, and engage in the world. Focus on your dreams and your desires with the Venus/Neptune conjunction. It was a very sobering beginning to the year, but that is more reason to focus on what you love.
The New Moon in an excellent time to do the Law of Abundance. Take a blank check and date it for January 24, 2020. Print out your name where it says, “Pay to the order of,” and then leave the small numeric box blank. Print on the next line, “PAID IN FULL.” At the bottom where you normally sign your name, print “The Law of Abundance. I wish you much luck and happiness.
In honor of Peter and Heidi Bondy, who were part of what made New York great. This new moon is for you!
