You probably have heard that it’s 2020. I mean, really, it’s on EVERYBODY’s lips. Many forecasts, many predictions, much excitement, much confusion, and much encouragement to enter this new year with optimism and hope, even in the face of some pretty major transitions occurring on the planet.
As I see it we each have a part to play in this epic unfolding in our own evolution. Breaking through illusion and story to get to the essence of your own incarnational blessing, your own curriculum of learning this lifetime, your own evolutionary process, your own unique emanation of the Divine.
I have experienced some fairly miraculous events in my personal life recently. Along with some inevitable endings and good-byes comes the opportunity for the NEW, the expanded version of who I am growing into. For me, this is what is happening. For you something else might be happening entirely. We are each facets of the expression of the Divine, each radiating our own expression of the Divine as we each move along on the Ascension path, sometimes breaking away from our expected group, sometimes leading.
I would say that 2020 is the beginning of an epic journey of self-expression for some and for all a complete letting go of any and all restrictions, especially those mandated by the culture you live in and the collective awareness you identify with. The collective awareness can often be mired in fear so it is imperative that you turn from fear, choosing only and ever LOVE. All I can say is that you have to experiment with it but it is worth experimenting with!
I have been truly astounded by the seemingly random synchronicities and messages from the angelic realm, the realm of unconditional support and help for this sometimes perilous, but always amazing, journey we call life.
Here’s a sweet example: I found myself driving home a way I would never normally go. In fact I almost felt like someone else was driving the car. All of a sudden I spotted an Airedale! One of my greatest loves this lifetime was my Airedale terrier, Beatrice Brown. She was like a nanny/mother to me for 15 years! So here’s the thing – I think there are very few Airedales in my town. It’s just not a breed I ever see so to see the Airedale (they pretty much all look alike, too cute for words) I felt like I was receiving a very specific angelic LOVE hug and I was delighted and deeply touched.
Which is all to say: the road not usually taken can hold a special blessing for you. Look for it.
OK! Now let’s talk some astrology!
No doubt you have heard chitter chatter about the upcoming Saturn-Pluto conjunction, the Full Moon eclipse conjoining the Saturn-Pluto conjunction, Uranus turning direct. Even people I would think know absolutely nothing about astrology are murmuring these events over their morning coffee. I find this comforting! To know that we are acknowledging the impact of planetary movement on us here on Earth. I mean, really, how could their movement in the mobile of the solar system NOT affect us? The trick is to remember that each will be affected differently, in unique ways, as each individual has been imprinted with a certain astrological energetic configuration at birth.That is why you may respond a certain way to external influences and others may respond in completely different ways. We are all in the school called EARTH but we are not all in the same class. Though the ultimate learning is LOVE, we each go about learning about LOVE in our unique ways, each of us a drop of water in the giant flow of life. it’s humbling.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse January 10 20 degrees Cancer
URANUS turns DIRECT January 10 2 degrees Taurus
SATURN-Pluto conjunction January 8 -14 22 degrees Capricorn
So YES! January 2020 IS an amazing month and I’m sure you can feel the energetic upswing happening. Where 22 degrees Capricorn falls in your birth chart is a pivotal point in your chart. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction is at 22 degrees Capricorn opposing the Full Moon at 20 degrees, conjoining the Sun at 20 degrees Capricorn. Also look to 22 degrees of any of the other cardinal signs: Aries, Libra, Cancer. Those too will be greatly affected. Jupiter, also transiting Capricorn for the year, makes everything it touches way mo’bigger so Capricornian energy is in full expansion mode.
Because I am pathologically optimistic I like to focus on the positive, life-affirming attributes of Capricorn. Capricorn gives form, which we need or we would be free-floating energy without a body. Capricorn rules the entire skeletal system, the teeth, the nails, and the skin. Ah! Where would we be without those, right? Capricorn can also crystallize and become rigid so KEEP HYDRATED! And stay away from foods that create inflammation in your body. You have to experiment with this as some foods are inflammatory to others but not to you.
Capricorn is a leader, enjoying the challenges of responsibility. You might find your own leadership capabilities rising to the surface.
Capricorn is the finest expression of the Divine Masculine – the male expressed as an expression of Divinity, of caring, of compassion, of LOVE in the practical, protective style of the Divine Masculine.
Uranus, revolutionary planet of abrupt and perhaps surprisingly unexpected breakthroughs, stations DIRECT on January 10 at 2 degrees Taurus. I would imagine that things start picking up speed quite dramatically over the next months into the Spring, which is also when the effects of the eclipse will be felt.
As the eclipse conjoins the Saturn-Pluto conjunction I can only imagine that some significant shifts will be occurring in the systems that impact the collective. And these can MOST DEFINITELY be for the better! So see that!
The Saturn-Pluto tag team can stir up quite a frenzy of dread and fear. it takes a warrior, such as yourself, to hold fast to the light, no matter what the external circumstances present. What a time! What a time!
