Winter Solstice. The longest night of the year. Time to gather around those who are close and share our inner light with our modern villages. Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season! Here is a little cosmic update. Enjoy~
Mercury went retrograde on December 19th just a degree from connecting with Pluto in Capricorn and will continue retreating into the last degrees of Sagittarius before going direct on January 8th. As Mercury retreats from Pluto, it is time to go inward and reflect on all what was brought up from deep in our subconscious mind to be communicated as we struggle to awaken to our true self (Uranus in Aries) and interact with others doing the same (Jupiter in Libra) which have both been squaring loosely squaring Pluto.
As Mercury approached Pluto the combination of these two planets generated:
Really intense and ruthless communication
Suppressed information being exposed
Thoughts around security and your survival
Lucky for us we have this time as Mercury retrogrades to take a break from the wild ride of intense exchanges. Mercury will come back to join Pluto on January 29th, bringing up more of what needs to be cleared for us to move forward with maturity and wisdom.
Mars entered Pisces on the 19th as well where it will travel until January 27th when it charges into it’s home sign of Aries. Mars is a bit out of sorts in Pisces, however the best use of this energy is to move in a direction that brings you the most peace. Whether it is using the imagination to pull from the unknown and bring something new to earth, music, meditation, yoga etc….find a way to do some of what I like to call...advanced chilling. It makes a nice combination of energy when Mercury is also retrograding and calling us back to regenerate and integrate all the lessons that we have received since the last cycle. Quiet the mind and chill the fuck out for a bit. Seek peace.
Uranus is exactly trine Saturn during this time. Use this positive connection and your innovative ideas to form your goals into reality. Don’t let boring ass Saturn put you in a box, blow that box apart with some of your own flavor of weird and create something new!
Saturn wants us form beliefs that are true to self and jobs that reflect our passion, take visions and make them real, go on quests and adventures and build yourself up with knowledge from nature, other cultures and distant travels (physical or mental). We each are facing our duties, responsibilities, and limitations and seeing if they stand the test of time. Do you have faith needed to keep on the right path or are you going to let your wound hold you back from making it happen?
Chiron in Pisces squaring this is about moving past our limitations (Saturn) and beyond them with compassion for ourselves and everyone else going on their hero’s journey. We may get critical of our grandiose plans and feel like they will not manifest, it’s too much work etc…but now is the time to break on through to the other side and make it happen!!! Don’t give up, the world needs us to bring the vibes and keep it real for all those lost in illusions.
