Stargazing – Week of January 5th through January 12th, 2020

Stargazing – Week of January 5th through January 12th, 2020

It’s time to get out the celebration fire works and tissue box as the same time. This first full week in the New Year of 2020 holds in it two Stargazing movements that will shake up and rock your world! Friday, January 10th is the Full Moon eclipse in Cancer and on Sunday, January 12th is the awaited conjunction of Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn, which can certainly stir up trouble. This second configuration happens only once every 34/35 years. Think back to 1982-84 and the famed Reaganomics.

Cancer is the mother, and a feminine sign. We closed 2019 with a solar eclipse in Cancer, and opened 2020 with a lunar eclipse in Cancer. This is certainly a celestial tip-off that 2020 with bring forward the feminine energies and feminine power. Women will be highlighted from the beginning to the end of 2020, for sure. We could get our first female vice president, and other female heads of state will be a focus in 2020. All signs indicate that this is a very important year for everyone because, since the karmic nodes have also moved into Cancer/Capricorn, we have new energy, a different focus and consciousness, as well as new opportunities that were not present before.

The rare triple alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn begins now. Actually, you could say it kicked off with the December 25/26 solar eclipse in Capricorn. This “restructure your life” combination goes on all year, and it officially begins on January 12th when Saturn aligns with Pluto. Decide what it is time to release with Pluto, as he is the let go and let Godplanet. Jupiter is the planet of luck and abundance, and brings opportunities that allow you to grow. Saturn makes any and all short-term sacrifices for the long term good. You will have to work hard to bring the full amount of the opportunities into your reality. Time to decide, what is your responsibility and what is no longer your responsibility? Warrior Mars moved into Sagittarius on January 3rd into mid-February. It is time to put ambitious effort into your big and expansive ideas and projects.

Then there is the lunar eclipse in Cancer on January 10th. The feminine energies always want to bring you your good, and a lunar eclipse is asking you to make necessary changes to open the door for the new energies to flow in. Also, Uranus wakes up from it’s five  month retrograde on the same day as the eclipse. This will affect the two heavy duty planets on the 12th. It’s simple; say good-bye to whatever is necessary to move ahead. You can be nice, but firm however, stay strong, focused, and determined. It will all pay off in the long-term. The change that occurs will be life-altering with long reaching consequences.

On Monday, the 6th, the Moon is void-of-course all day. That means it is not great for initiating important new projects. It’s best to work with existing projects and introspective activities.However, Monday evening has the Sun and Neptune playing nicely together, so movies, romance, meditation or other spiritual activities are favored, or write that screen play. In fact, communications planet Mercury is making nice to Neptune as well, helping you to communicate a higher vision, opening your intuition, while expressing compassion and forgiveness.

The Full Moon on January 10th is a lunar eclipse. Part of this energy is to create a balance between your nurturing needs and your responsibilities. Another part is to look at your higher service to the world, while still attending to your personal life. There is one more set of Cancer and Capricorn eclipses coming this summer at the June Solstice, before going away for about nine years. Use that as a motivation to take care of all those close to home projects and issues because the tone is going to change dramatically in May and the pace of your outer world is going to increase.

Take advantage of this present time to get your house in order. Restructuring Saturn is moving into alignment with death and rebirth Pluto in the next few days; decide what it is you need to release.

The Moon moves into Leo on Saturday, so make room for some fun, creativity, or other activities that open your heart. If you have trouble sleeping Saturday night-Sunday the 12thearly morning, it is because mental Mercury is very active. It’s best to plan to meditate, listen to soft music, and quiet your mind before going to bed Saturday night.

Sunday is an interesting day. It begins with Mercury activity; lots of talk, restlessness, and moving quickly. Did you run or fly in your dreams last night? Saturn and Pluto align on Sunday as the first step in the triple energetic alignment in Capricorn going on all year. This calls you to let go of that which robs your power so you can step into new levels of your authority figure. Be clear about your boundaries and responsibilities. Don’t be afraid to appear to be the bad guy/girl if you need to move on from some relationship or aspect of your life and the people around you do not support it.

This large, slow moving transition highlights the stock market, world banking, government, and big business. It can bring a global conversion to virtual money, like crypto-currency, trade irregularities, economic downturns, along with the uncovering of corruption and misuse of power.

SIDE NOTE: This conjunction of Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn will have a polarizing effect on the US presidential race, between those who want things to stay the same and those who insist it’s time for the old ways to end. With Mercury smack dab in the middle, the impact is sure to be featured in the news media around the world.

Stargazing — Week of December 30th through January 5th, 2020

Stargazing — Week of December 30th through January 5th, 2020



Monday afternoon has talkative Mercury making harmony to innovative Uranus, a good day to meet new people or share your inventive ideas with others. Your mind is open to exciting new ideas including upgrading your technology knowledge and meeting new, influential friends.

The Moon is in Pisces for New Year’s Eve and throughout New Year’s day, conjuncting Neptune. Pisces is associated with fantasy, dreams, music, romantic fantasy, meditation, spirituality, film and movies, or escapist behaviors such as drugs and alcohol. Neptune, also in Pisces, rules over drugs and water. Be careful on slippery roads and keep a watch out for black ice. Plan time to meditate and open to your higher vision. This is a marvelous time to receive some important messages. Use caution out in traffic for those who choose to drink and drive.

On Thursday, January 2nd we have the Jupiter, Mercury conjunction which brightens and expands communication and our thinking throughout the rest of the week.

Friday, January 3rd Mars moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius bringing you confidence and the courage that you will manage to get what you desire. Be careful not to overextend now, because these two planets together usually don’t do anything in moderation.

You could decide to take a long vacation trip when your credit cards are maxed out, or try to paint a portrait when you’ve just begun taking art lessons. Remember the other side of overindulgence is knowing to stop forging ahead and take a break.

There is a tremendous sense of momentum building as the “star” planets, Saturn and Pluto come closer together in Capricorn. This cycle occurs every 20 years as we enter a new decade. In Capricorn this energy will challenge business, corporations, family structure and governments worldwide.

On Christmas Day there was an eclipse in Capricorn and on January 10, 2020, another eclipse in its opposing sign, Cancer. Because both eclipses hit the Nodes, the focus is on the Earth’s environment, business, and our food supply. 2020 is a very big year with three planets closely aligned in Capricorn, and a teaser of Aquarius energy coming in the future. With Jupiter and Saturn throughout the year, it promises to be a time for hard work to bring you your rewards.

The energy of 2020 is extraordinary because the last time this occurred was in the 1500’s. At that time the theme was Government and Religion, and Martin Luther began the Lutheran Church, breaking away from the Catholic domain. The energy push began on Dec. 15, 2019, and continues until we have the June 2020 Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn.

Stargazing — Week of December 23rd through December 29th, 2019

Stargazing — Week of December 23rd through December 29th, 2019

It’s Christmas week, as well as the beginning of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, along with the energies of Grace and Love. The Sun makes a trine to Uranus, the planet of surprises, and promises to be quite different than other years and very unique. Christmas Eve holds a special Capricorn New Moon. A Solar Eclipse, the last one of this decade, on Christmas Day brings in lucky Jupiter, signaling us that 2020 holds prosperity and good fortune in it’s wake. This Solar Eclipse will be visible as a bright ring around the Moon. In folk lore that signaled a heavy, cold, and snowy winter

This eclipse in serious, reserved Capricorn, has you wanting to be quiet and introspective.

The Solar Eclipse is on December 25th at 5 degrees Capricorn. Five of the ten planets we use in astrology plus dwarf planet Ceres are in Capricorn now. Although Capricorn does tend to have a dry sense of humor, (Think of the late comedian Jack Benny,) the sign represents boundaries, restrictions, certifications, rules, taxes, infrastructure and sacrificing in the short term for long-term rewards. However, please remember that a New Moon that includes a Solar Eclipse is not a good time to plant any seeds for new beginnings. It’s a time to get quiet, go within, and focus on the adjustments you need to make for the upcoming decade.

Watch for news under the path of the eclipse from the Middle East to India-Pakistan as well as China and Indonesia. On the personal level, it is time to get serious about your priorities and goals. Where do you need to get more disciplined or set boundaries so others do not take advantage of you? So close your eyes, hold your nose, and jump in. There is the opportunity to renovate your life if you are willing to make lasting changes. Make friends with this energy because changes are coming to you, even if you think you are happy in your well-dug groovy rut or not). There is help because supportive Venus is moving through friendly Aquarius bringing us “far seeing” energy. You can find the help you need if you are willing to open to new groups, friends, and organizations. (Remember, “if you don’t ask, you don’t get.)

Mercury finishes up the year on Saturday, December 28th and this shift is centered on organized thinking and structured ideas making it an excellent week to sit down with your Higher-Self and figure out tour goals and game plan for 2020.

Sunday is a quiet day under a friendly Aquarius moon, and there are no planetary aspects, which can have you feeling a bit detached from the world. Whew! Finally, rest time. Perhaps you can get with the kids and make cookies for New Years, while Dad watches the game.

The Moon is in Pisces on New Year’s Eve. You can open your intuition and be a visionary, watch a movie, create a fantasy, or escape in those energies associated with Pisces.



Stargazing—Week of December 18th, 2019

Stargazing—Week of December 18th, 2019

This next week brings back the Light as we celebrate the Winter Solstice while the Moon Squares Pluto on Saturday, December 21st. The Sun reaches its lowest point in the sky and begins to turn around, bringing us more light as our days become longer. At the same time, the Sun enters Capricorn, and your outer world focus changes from “let’s have a party” to your career and your standing in the community. It’s time to get serious and commit to your projects and relationships.

For the past week, Jupiter has been moving into a harmonious trine to Uranus, which will be exact on Sunday, Dec. 15th. You can open your energies up to expansive new ideas now, and be able to bring them down to earth over the coming year. Jupiter would love to travel, publish, or film. Uranus wants excitement and a revolution. Because both are in earth element signs, Capricorn and Taurus, you can have a practical revolution, while manifesting your desires.

Tend to all the little details of your life or clear clutter on Tuesday and Wednesday under a purifying Virgo Moon.

Thursday the 19th is a big day this week when it gives you an energy bolt to make things happen. It would be best to get your work done early because you will want to do less responsible stuff as the day goes on. You mental side wants to accomplish a lot, but your intuitive side just wants to daydream and watch a movie where you don’t have to think too much. Venus enters Aquarius on Thursday until January 13th. As a fixed air sign, Aquarius is as cool as a cucumber, emotionally detached and focused on emotional independence. However, this is a friendly energy for sharing during the holidays.

The powerful Winter Solstice is on Saturday December 21st. Most of the planets are clustered in a quarter area of the zodiac. That means you are going to focus your intent on some specific aspect of your life or goals in the coming three months. Adding emphasis to this is a solar eclipse coming up on December 25/26th. One part of you is quietly consolidating and rejuvenating your energy at the northern hemisphere’s darkest night of the year, and another part of you is gearing up for new projects that come from a deeper, Soul level. The emotional moon and warrior Mars are in intensely emotional Scorpio to help you tap in to the deepest levels of your being.  Be sure to put the time in for meditation during this time, and line up your focus and desires for 2020.

The sun and the three planets that will be in the very rare Capricorn alignment in 2020 are moving closer together now. The physical structure of your life is being rebuilt at this time; and on a higher level, you are being initiated into a new order and way of living. The moon is in harmony with spiritual Neptune, helping you blend your warm comfort needs with your higher Soul’s service.

Astrology for DogsDon’t be surprised if you wake up early Sunday morning. Relationship planet Venus challenges electric Uranus that favors personal freedom over intimacy. It’s defiantly not the best morning for relationship conversations. At the same time, aggressive Mars is making a minor harmony to transforming Pluto. That means you can push a little in relationship conversations, but know when to stop.

On a more physical level, one part of you wants to go exercise and another wants to just stretch, yawn, and go out for breakfast.


STARGAZING — Week of Dec. 9th through Dec. 15th, 2019

STARGAZING — Week of Dec. 9th through Dec. 15th, 2019

A dreamy eyed, imaginative Full Moon in Gemini dominates the week, along with two unusual trines and a difficult conjunction with Venus.

On early Sunday morning while most of the USA sleeps, the Sun makes a challenge to Neptune. Pay attention to your dreams. Ask yourself if you are living your life in accordance with your higher vision, or do you need to make some important, but perhaps not easy, life adjustments? Illusions get burst under this energy.

Mercury turns retrogradeMercury is leaving the shadow of its Oct 31st-Nov. 20th retrograde cycle, so the communications planet enters fresh ground as the messenger moves into Sagittarius until the 28th. Communicate expansive ideas and higher philosophy. Thus sign shift changes communication from darkness to Light. The Sagittarius kind of communication uses the broadest possible words without worrying about the details. That’s why Sag’s have the reputation to exaggerate. This energy continues for the next three weeks.

The Full Moon is on Wednesday, December 11th, at 20 degrees Gemini. This is a bit of a contradictory Full Moon because Gemini’s are always ready for a party. They can talk to anyone and everyone at any time. However, dreamy monk Neptune is making a challenge to the Full Moon, preferring to either share on a private, sacred level, or just hide out altogether. At the same time, the energy of Gemini and Sagittarius are ready for anything, filled with curiosity and enthusiasm. Yet, there is an increasing emphasis of planets in serious Capricorn, bringing you down to earth. The Full Moon energy light up the sky filling the night with unconscious energy for completing routine tasks and making final decisions abut matters concerning roommates, siblings, or neighbors. With a square from Neptune, this Full Moon brings a touch of martyr/victim along with a warning that if you get too far away from reality, you could fall off the edge of the cliff.

There is help for the coming week from Jupiter if you are willing to move into a larger belief system. The god of abundance is in harmony with Uranus if you are willing to shake up your life with a pragmatic revolution. Don’t panic if you feel pulled in numerous directions simultaneously. You can find a way to put all these diverse energies into a working whole, but you will need to say “no” to someone or something, because you simply can’t do everything.

Friday the 13th is an interesting day in that Mars makes harmony to Neptune early in the morning. Although this is not a high energy aspect, it does enhance the nurturing aspect and could bring an energetic shift/gift for teachers and spiritual seekers. You can either be a visionary or a space cadet under this spiritual warrior combination. A few hours later, Venus aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. This helps you stand in diplomatic, feminine power and can be quite good in business. However, forcing issues, especially relationships, can bring final endings. This is the “last dance” aspect because it’s the second and final trine of Mars and Neptune for 2019. Later in the day, a charismatic and sexual Venus-Pluto conjunction comes with a short term potential for a large dose of jealousy and obsession.

The Moon is void-of-course all day Saturday, so use caution if making important purchases. A void moon is better for introspection than taking important actions.

The week ends on a high note on Sunday, December 15th as Jupiter trines Uranus. This creative and daring energy gives you a better-than-average chance that you will be wildly successful if you break away from your normal routine and try something new. This is a high-powered celestial gift that doesn’t come again until 2028.


STARGAZING — Week of Dec. 2nd through Dec. 8th, 2019

STARGAZING — Week of Dec. 2nd through Dec. 8th, 2019

Jupiter dominates the skies the first week of December as it changes signs, and moves into hardworking Capricorn until December 2020. There is an opportunity here to bring big ideas into the mundane world. Think big and be willing to put long-term effort into living large. This is the year to create long-lasting efforts that will have important consequences for your future in the new decade, which actually begins next January, 2021. How will you use your free will to begin the 2020 New Year? What do you need to re-create or let go of?

The Moon is in friendly Aquarius on Sunday and Monday. Participate in social activities or help a friend or serve some group effort. Monday morning brings a possibility of brain fog when the Sun gets into a tangle with Neptune. How much snow were we supposed to get? Monday brings the movement of Jupiter as well, as Jupiter is considered to be in its fall in a cardinal earth sign. Things could get a bit awkward while Jupiter moves through Capricorn because its path to expansion, good luck and joy is severely restricted by Capricorn’s love of discipline, cautiousness, conformity, and conservative philosophy. However, the “father” energy of Capricorn, even at its worst, will bring good fortune to some of those who work for it.

The most significant part of this energy change is that Jupiter and Saturn will be conjunct in December of 2020. Now, Jupiter and Saturn come together every twenty years and are known as “the rulers of the age.” This powerful energy begins the new decade. The last time they came together was in the sign of Taurus in December of 2000. This was just before 9/11 which changed the world, and our way of living. It’s time to meditate or to begin your daily meditation practice. Open your belief system to a larger way of looking at life. There are greater possibilities than you ever imagined.

Relationship planets Venus and Mars are in quiet harmony Monday evening into Tuesday morning, excellent for personal sharing in partnerships. This energy could unite love and sex in a positive way.

Beginning at midday Thursday and lasting through Saturday, the Moon is in impatient Aries. This sign is like a sprinter rather than a long distance runner. Be sure to get the most important things done first so they do not fall to the “half-finished” category. Of course, Aries energy is also good for exercise.

A square from the Sun to Neptune on Sunday, Dec. 8th could result in low energy, confusion, and disappointment. This is a good time to relax, avoid any high-stress activities, and to focus on your creativity and imagination.
