As the New Year kicks off, we are invited to look at how we became wiser in 2014 with the bright light of the Sun illuminating Pluto in Capricorn. This may reveal what our psyche is trying to renew, release or transform so we are encouraged to check in with our core to see what still may need excavating and purging as we build a new foundation. Uranus will be hanging tight with the South Node of the Moon until June that relates to our past, our habits, our innate tendencies, and our default behaviors that we are encouraged in this life to evolve away from to grow. Uranus can be quite an “awakener” as he tries to compel us all to forge a new path, break free from our habits, and follow an instinctive new beginning filled with freedom and independence. As we claim our independence and foster ourselves as individuals, we can enter into balanced relationships with others. Mars is in Aquarius echoing some of Uranus’ sentiments to drive us to display our inner genius and creative selves, Jupiter in Leo, without overdoing it and becoming the outcast. Jupiter is currently retrograde so it is taking an inner look at its creative flair and need for attention. It will allow us to review our inner child until April 9th this year when it goes back to direct or forward motion.
Of notable mention is Saturn’s movement into Sagittarius which asks us to solidify what we believe in and to be adventurous and committed in seeking our higher truths. Saturn puts a little bit of a damper on Neptune’s dreamy Piscean fantasies as he squares him or jabs him in his side. Neptune can be happy floating along in the fog, the dreamscape, the ultimate fantasy and Earthy Saturn, says “get real, banana peel!” Sagittarius and Pisces were both ruled by Jupiter prior to the discovery of Neptune, so they aren’t distant bedfellows. However, Saturn should help Neptune keep things more grounded while continuing to encourage the dreaming. Just be sure to make something of your quest that Saturn can see in our 3D world. Manifest the vision and bring form to it, don’t just stay in the clouds, bring the divine insights back down to Earth. Saturn will retrograde back into Scorpio in June to make sure there aren’t any cobwebs we haven’t dusted or places we need to test our emotional limits until September 19th when it returns to Sagittarius.
The Moon will be opposite Saturn moments after the “Happy New Year” celebration trying to balance our maturity and commitments with our emotional heart space. All in all the year ahead looks like a year of continued changes and evolution as we have our last of seven Uranus/Pluto squares in March. The effects of these planets engagements may continue to show their impact as the years unfold. Strong themes of finding your higher vision, fulfilling your dreams and fantasies, and allowing the old to transform to a stronger foundation prod us to remember our limitless human potential. May you all follow your heart and manifest your dreams!
