Capricorn 22 Dec - 19 Jan
The recent planetary emphasis on Aries,
the domestic zone of your solar chart,
continues this month. Therefore, home, family,
property and domestic matters are likely to take
up a considerable amount of your time, energy and
resources. However, one of the more significant aspects
of 2015 is this month’s lunar eclipse in Libra on April 4. The
Zodiac sign of Libra is opposite that of Aries and a number of things
that are signified in your solar chart by the sign and area containing Libra is at odds with those characterized by Aries. The full Moon in Libra on April 4 falls on the North Node of the Moon and so it is considered a lunar eclipse, a super full Moon. In astrology, the Nodes of the Moon, the North Node and the South Node, are considered an axis, they act like signposts, the North Node pointing to the way forward, where personal fulfillment, satisfaction and a certain amount of serendipitous good fortune lies waiting. Fate, often in the guise of circumstances points this way, and so whatever the North Node of the Moon represents, and the area of your solar chart, it is traveling through, is an area to develop.
Since the North Node of the Moon is currently traveling through Libra, the area of your solar chart associated with your career, vocation and those in positions of authority and influence then the presence of the North Node here is saying you should develop, encourage and prioritise this area of your life. Around the time of the lunar eclipse, perhaps a decision, commitment or do perspective is required, and events may occur that requires a choice, perhaps some situation in which you need to decide what your priorities are set your own agenda.
Don’t let your domestic commitments prevent you from making most of an opportunity out there in the big wide world. April promises to be a turning point in an important year for your vocation, work and dealings with those who have something to say about what you want and where you want to go. Therefore, despite the many demands, constraints or commitments you may have in your private life, make sure not to allow these to distract you, frustrate you or lead you too far away from your heart’s path and passion. On a simple level, make the most opportunities in the early part of the month to put yourself, your work and your talents in the shop window, make the most opportunities show the world you can do. Again, it may be something as simple as a decision, commitment or handing in a form, nevertheless, even if you’re knee deep in domestic concerns, keep your eyes on the prize and send out the right signals to those that matter, even if those feel like smoke signals sent out from a desert island, they will be received.
Another interesting astrological emphasis this month is that a number of planets are traveling through Taurus. Taurus is the area of your solar chart associated with those things that are source of pleasure for you. This can be hobbies, creative self-expression, various entertainments, distractions, as well as romantic and carnal pursuits. Therefore, even if you live with your wicked stepmother and two sisters don’t pass up the opportunity to go to the ball this month. Taurus also symbolizes the area solar chart associate the children. They can be children of the mind, such as hobbies and creative interests but also physical children. Therefore, whichever form your children take, physical, creative or philosophical, make sure to invest time and energy in them, nurture them, encourage them, support them. Saturn, your planetary ruler, moves relatively slowly and then slept for a few months this summer, when Saturn returns to Scorpio, Saturn will be in Sagittarius until the end of 2017. Saturn’s presence here is not easy to articulate. Sagittarius is one of the more complex areas of your solar chart but the significance of its meaning in your life to some extent, is elusive. Saturn’s presence here has something important to say about what’s going on between your ears, about your psyche, your psychology, your private thoughts and feelings. Positively, Saturn’s presence here indicates that you are going through a period in which a number of the major events, significant changes and important decisions will be those that will occur initially, on a psychological level and then the changes you make, in your head, will be mirrored by the changes out there in the world in which you live.
Since Saturn will be in Sagittarius for a considerable time, it is not a process that needs nor should be hurried. Aspects of yourself that may be preventing you from fulfilling your potential and living an authentic life will need to be addressed, confronted and resolved. Those qualities and characteristics that emphasise your authenticity, and what make you distinct and special should be emphasized. This is in readiness for the movement of Saturn, into Capricorn, your Sun sign, in 2018.
