This new decade beckons us to love what is, even as we transform our attachments to it and trust the process of our expansion and growth.We’re steeped in a time when the old ways of living are dying to what wants to be born, and the year’s first Penumbral Lunar Eclipse arrives on January 10th at 19 degrees Cancer to help us make these revolutionary – and evolutionary – shifts. Its maximum point is at 12:11 pm MST, just before the Full Moon peaks ten minutes later, at 20 degrees Cancer at 12:21 pm MST. As Pluto and Saturn come closer together and conjoin in Capricorn during this Lunar Eclipse in January, we are given the opportunity to encounter what happens when Mystery meets Reality.
When Pluto and Saturn meet in the sky, we are gifted with all that is possible.
At first, they glance furtively at each other, gauging their power and positions. Each of them feels secure in their stance and possesses a sense of pride in their sphere of influence. Saturn is the master of time, boundaries, and wisdom, and Pluto is the master of transformation, death, and rebirth; both are powerful in their own right.
They chance a longer, measured glance at each other and something else entirely emerges. A decision is made and they edge closer to each other while a vague sense of familiarity encircles them. The field of energy around and between them shimmers and flexes. It weaves between them, grows around them, and places them in uncharted territory. In this shared space, each of them feels stronger and more potent. Their understanding of themselves and their roles in the Celestial Universe morphs into something infinite and indefinable.
When Mystery and Reality dance together, everything is possible. When we breathe into the presence of what is, time, as we know it, ceases to exist. Awe, love, and appreciation seep into our awareness and our understanding of our place in the Celestial Universe shimmers and flexes.
If what we’ve built up until now in our personal lives and on a global scale isn’t working, we can call upon abundant celestial support to make positive changes this year. By first being honest about our beliefs and emotions concerning what we’re being called to restructure, we clear the way forward so we can engage in tangible, compassionate action steps.
Capricorn’s placement in our personal natal chart can guide us to where we need to evaluate our lives and release old ways of thinking, being, and living. Cancer’s presence shows us how to nurture ourselves through the challenges of embarking on this courageous journey.
This year, as we courageously step into the Celestial Universal field of possibility, may we glance at what is real and see the mysterious.
May we let curiosity bring us closer to each other and discover that our proximity makes us stronger.
May we be daring enough to hold the space for what is dying to do so.
And, when we’re steeped in infinite moments of awakened willingness and
authentic appreciation, may we welcome what is on its way.
With a deep and wide open heart, and infinite appreciation for what is, and all relations,
