Saturn is the planet of matter, reality, limits and difficulties. It is the planet of patience and the reward for our labors. It brings difficulties but also wisdom.

It karmically recycles time, bringing us back around again and again to people and circumstances till we learn our lesson and become matured.

From June the 4th, through to October the 23rd, Saturn will be moving retrograde in the sign of Aquarius.

During the retrograde period the Grand Master will be confronting us with a series of questions and reconsiderations that have to do with how we function collectively and with how authentic we are.

With where our freedom does lie and also with what our limitations are.

Some of the topics of the rigorous yet wise Master’s examinations include:

  • How do we set our boundaries towards others?
  • Do we not do it at all, resulting in burdening ourselves with the responsibilities of others just for the sake of the group, the team or the relationship?
  • Are there people who upset us with their behavior precisely because we haven’t let them know to what extent certain things are permitted?
  • On the other hand, is it us who are the ones restricting and repressing others because we are inflexible in some opinions?
  • Are we distancing ourselves too much from our emotions and appear cold and strict when we are really not?
  • Do we need to relax and let things flow instead of trying to organize and control everything?
  • Does our freedom ends where the other person’s freedom begins?
  • Are we being authentic or are we repressing our individuality and acting as others expect of us?

 

In addition to the various questions it raises, the Saturn retrograde period has also a very strong learning and developmental quality as it is a process of internalizing responsibilities as well as maturing.

It is also likely during this period that we get in touch with some of our fears.

Fear is sometimes experienced as a paralyzing emotion that invalidates all choice and imprisons us emotionally. In reality HOWEVER, our fears are nothing more than the mere psychological expression of limitations that we experience in our daily lives.

But if we think about it, these are limitations and difficulties that we ourselves have imposed on ourselves, precisely because in the past we did not dare to set our limits, and as a result, other people and situations imposed theirs on us, so that now we have little or no choice.

When we become aware of what these limitations or difficulties are, it is completely LIBERATING and this has the effect of redefining who we are in relation to others, in relation to situations, and most importantly, in relation to ourselves.


So throughout the period of Saturn’s retrograde it’ s the best time to set our boundaries, to face what is restricting us, to see what it is that scares us, and to overcome our hesitations.

See in which sector of your horoscope (house) the Saturn Retrograde transit is taking place, as well as the aspects that Saturn will make during its retrograde, as well as Saturn’s position in your natal chart to prepare yourself properly.

I wish everyone good luck on the exam!

THE SYMBOLIC NEW MOON

Sharing is caring:

New Moon Cosmos of Astrology

New Moon is the first phase of the Moon in its orbit around the Earth. It’s a phase that marks the beginning of a new synodic cycle between the Sun and the Moon.

What happens when we have a New Moon is that as the Moon rotates it comes full circle, once again, to the same degree that the Sun is on the ecliptic, and as it passes between the Earth and the Sun, it becomes invisible.

The Sun in astrology symbolizes our very existence, our cognition, our self – expression. The Moon is symbolic of our feelings, our psyche, our intuition and the subconscious. While this first phase lasts the Moon is united with the Sun and has stopped for a while to reflect its light.

It is now dark and unseen in the night sky.

It is at this moment that we also stop for a while to start listening to our inner world. We consciously and psychologically turn within, and as our self-expression tunes with our intuition, this becomes the perfect alignment. It is now the proper time when we can set new goals, renew aspirations, chase dreams and decide on how to act or react.

This may also be a time when we feel renewed, full of energy and vitality.

It is now when the processes that have started with the previous New Moon, which occurred about 29 days ago, have reached their final stage and are now either completed or transforming, giving their place to new ones that are beginning now.

It is the same cycle starting again and again, but as T.S. Eliot have said, we may again find ourselves where we started, but now we are seeing with “new” eyes because we carry within us the experience of the previous cycle.


We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T. S. Eliot – “Little Gidding”


Right in the middle of the previous cycle, at the time of the Full Moon about 14 days ago, our actions reached a climax, we evaluated and assessed where we stood and we then gradually assimilated the results, as the Moon waxing, approached again towards the Sun and led up to this New Moon.

New Moon-Cosmos of Astrology

The perpetual cycle starts again.

But every new conjunction between the Sun and the Moon, occurs in a different degree and within a different zodiac sign throughout the year.

The aspects that the other planets are making with the two Lights at the time of the New Moon are also different.

This makes each New Moon a unique event for each one of us as it falls on our natal chart and makes aspects with our natal planets.

Even if you do not have planets in the sign of the New Moon for a given month, the New Moon’s energy emphasizes certain areas of your lives which the astrologer can analyse especially for You.


Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise for renewal.

VENUS IN PISCES 2022

VENUS IN PISCES 2022: Sweetness in your love life

VENUS IN PISCES 2022

Venus enters Pisces on April 5 and will shine like a pearl in an ocean in the hours just before dawn, and on through to May 2, 2022.

Venus is the archetype of love and sensuality. It expresses what we like in others and what we like in ourselves. Wherever Venus is, there is aesthetics, sensuality, beauty, harmony, music.

It is the planet that gives us value, we value ourselves more and makes us radiant.

This sense of inner beauty is reflected in the outer world and other people find us attractive and important. This is why we attract love and we attract wealth.

Where there is Venus there is value.

That is why it is a planet also associated with money and goods.


Venus when in the sign of Pisces expresses the world of the sign. It becomes receptive and emanates emotions, colored with transcendental qualities.

Eros or the mere desire to be in love, has a hypnotic effect on our psyche, as Pisces is an introspective sign and Venus’ archetype of finding value turns inward.

Love for our self is found in the solitude of being and the serenity of self. It is precisely from this place of inner calm that it begins to gradually rise to its most unselfish and universal expression, transcending the self and becoming Elevated Love.

We are in love with the vibrations and energy we share with the cosmic soul. We desire to feel emotions that inspire us. We desire to relate from a selfless perspective, sharing our affection with kindness and sensitivity.

We get intoxicated with art and long to live the fantasies of the dream world.

What else is beautiful art but the dream of an artist manifested in reality in the form of a painting, a book or a film?

What else is unconditional love but the dream of an ideal union that transcends the physical body and transcends our ego? A dream dreamed by the universe and manifested in reality in the form of a man and a woman destined to be together?

In the sign of Pisces, the sensual side of Venus is no longer fed by the pleasure of the senses but with the pleasure of the Soul.

When a literary character is consumed with unrequited love, he even ceases eating food in his compulsion for union, and this is because soul fulfillment is greater than the pleasure of the senses of taste.

Venus in Pisces feeds on the spiritual, the abstract, the ideal.

This is how Venus in Pisces works. Not as mere desire, but as the very wings of desire that make us fly towards the skies of ecstasy. Emotions are tuned to higher frequencies and the values are those of compassion, forgiveness and spirituality.


During her transit through Pisces, Venus will be conjunct Jupiter and then Neptune, as all three planets will be in a sign where they are more expressive, and Venus will also be in a sign where is expressed in exaggeration.

The Jupiter-Venus conjunction will take place on May 1st at 27°58′ degrees Pisces, on the degree where Venus is in exaltation. It is an aspect that brings luck, love, and adoration for those of you who have your Sun, Moon, personal planets, or horoscope angles at 25°-29° degrees of Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus, or Capricorn.

The conjunction with Neptune takes place on April 27th at 24°28′ Pisces, bringing awareness, spirituality, emotional uplift, inspiration, religious interests, creativity. Pay attention to dreams because they are especially important.
All the above for those of you with the Sun, Moon or your personal planets or horoscope angles at 22°-26° degrees Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus or Capricorn.

Of special significance is the sextile and trine aspect that Venus will make to the Lunar Nodes on April the 26th. An aspect that will bring very important connections or even karmic relationships to those of you who have your Sun, Moon or your personal planets or horoscope angles at 20°-24° Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus or Capricorn.

So enjoy the sweetness and romance of the days ahead, fill yourself with understanding and feelings of forgiveness for yourself and others, and indulge in the Magic and the wonders that the last week of April has in store for EVERYONE.

Chiron in Aries

CHIRON IN ARIES 2019-2027 – The Centaur And The Selfish Gene

Sharing is caring:

Chiron in Aries


CHIRON IN ARIES 2019-2027 

The Centaur And The Selfish Gene

Chiron, the minor planet and comet, an astronomical body with a dual nature just like the mythological Centaur Chiron, enters the zodiac of Aries.

Chiron will transit the Aries sign from February 18, 2019 until June 19, 2026 when he will enter the Sign of Taurus. There he will remain for a while, and will return back to Aries from September 17, 2026 up until April 14, 2027 when he will again enter Taurus for good.

Chiron astrologically, depending on the sign in which he is, represents the area where the person experiences an intense trauma or feelings of inadequacy. At the same time Chiron shows us the area in which a person can cure the self, by facing the trauma and thus overcoming failure.

When Chiron is placed in the Sign of Aries it is associated with an identity trauma, a wound regarding healthy egoism or a trauma of self-expression.

Chiron in Aries is an inability to express our deep inner voice, that shouts “be yourself”. A voice which we do not hear. It is the inability to defend our ego or the inability to accept our identity and our uniqueness.

Depending on the level of maturity and awareness, we have the ability to either put a balm on the wound and heal it or use its pus and keep it open. BUT Chiron eventually will bring us face to face with our most deep inward pain.

Chiron reminds us that part of being successful is knowing how to manage failure. It reminds us that a prerequisite for healing others is that we have first achieved self-healing, and we can be the example because we have experienced the solution and have found the way out of the pain.

From within the Sign of Aries, and especially for those who have a Chiron return during the time that the Centaur will remain there, Chiron calls us to avoid the negative expression of his astrological position and to follow the positive.

Negative Expression

  1. We want to be better than the rest and it hurt us when this is not the case.
  2. We are conceited and all our actions aim solely at self-confirmation.
  3. We do not believe in ourselves and we feel inadequate in regards to expressing our sexuality and healthy egoism.

Positive Expression

  1. We feel and know that we do not have to compare ourselves with others.
  2. We forgive ourselves if in the past we did not believe so much in us and we move forward having love for ourselves and awareness of our value.
  3. Loving ourselves in the right way, does not make us conceited, but instead allows us to be well within in moments of still and solitude. It gives us the power to heal our own wounds and to be an example and an inspiration for others.

It is not that difficult. In the end, Chiron as he transits the sign of Aries, only wants us to accept ourselves. To accept every negative, every weakness, every inadequacy, every failure.

This very acceptance is what will give us the power to heal our own wounds and to be an example and inspiration for others.

Jupiter Pisces Sagittarius

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS – JUPITER IN PISCES: JUPITER’S MYSTICAL RULERSHIPS

Sharing is caring:

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS

GET YOUR OWN READING!

Jupiter when placed in the Signs of its rulership, Sagittarius or Pisces, is operating in the same Mutable mode but being in a different Element, it expresses differently.

 

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS

In Sagittarius, Jupiter expands Gnosis, expands our mind to open and reach out towards wisdom, through the acceptance and acknowledgment of the multiple and different forms and ideas in the material world.

Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery, a broadening of our mind and our horizons, with an accumulation of real life experiences through travelling, studying or reading.


The process of expansion is external and is lived as an outlet for the fiery passion of the sign to live life at its fullest.


Travel and enjoy life, embrace new cultures, explore new opportunities, learn more and more, adopt a philosophy or a religious system.

All are possible ways to expand Gnosis, knowledge and yourself. Jupiter here becomes passionate and acts in good faith. A faith in Life.

The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may have deep ethics, religious views or be a real cosmopolitan, with a passionate warm nature, optimistic, generous and over enthusiastic.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, on his unskilled side or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to wander unceasingly without rooting somewhere, and to accumulate an excess of experiences for the sake of experiences only, without judging if they are ethical or expedient.

Jupiter here may be William Blake, the painter, saying:


“The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom”


 

JUPITER IN PISCES

In Pisces Jupiter evolves and sustains Belief, expands the sub-conscious, and reaches out towards universal energy and acceptance of the transient nature of reality.

Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery through the broadening of the faculty of empathy, that bestows understanding, compassion for others, and elevates the psyche to higher vibrations.


The process of expansion is internal. 

It is not outright visible, but many times hidden or mystical and is lived as an outlet for the psychological need of the Sign of Pisces to be Inspired.


The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may be a deeply religious person, a pious one, or a spiritual guru, or someone who has a strong faith in man’s inherent ability to love truly and devoutly. 

Jupiter here may be William Blake, the mystical poet, saying:


“If the doors of perception were cleansed

everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”

“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”


Jupiter in Pisces on his unskilled side, or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to easily believe and be beguiled, may give excessive daydreaming, escapism or to make a person over-react towards the need of others.

 

THE POET AND PAINTER, WILLIAM BLAKE

William Blake (November 28, 1757 – August 12, 1827) was one of the most important English poets and also painter, engraver, illustrator, mystic and visionary. It is often referred to as the “Prophet” of English literature and is among the major poets of world literature.

P.S. Interestingly enough William Blake has Jupiter in Sagittarius!
