Daily Cosmic Calendar for Tuesday, December 23rd

It is wise to always keep track of void lunar cycles — particularly when they are lengthy, as this void Moon transit through Capricorn continues until 6:53PM (when the lunar orb enters service-oriented Aquarius). In the meantime, you may want to enjoy a whirlpool treatment or soothing hot-tub experience as the Sun makes an inspirational, 72-degree tie with Chiron (2:34AM). You could use the relaxation since Saturn temporarily leaves intense Scorpio (where it has been for the last 2+ years) for Sagittarius (8:35AM). Saturn stays in Sagittarius until June 14, 2015, when it flips back into the end of Scorpio. Saturn’s return visit to Scorpio then continues to September 17, 2015 when it rejoins the beginning of Sagittarius and then staying here until December 19, 2017. All things considered, it is probably better for Saturn to be in fiery, upbeat Sagittarius than in watery, intense Scorpio — but this may not be the case for people born with the Sun or several planets in the sign of the celestial archer. Today is also notable because Mercury unites with Vesta at 11 degrees of Capricorn (5:32PM). Utilize this springboard toward materializing key investment plans once the Moon is safely in Aquarius (6:53PM and afterwards). Be extra cautious regarding primary partnerships tonight as Venus forms an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with Juno (9:31PM). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.

Today’s Planet Tracker: Sun in Capricorn, Dec 21, 2014 to Jan 20, 2015

Sun in Capricorn

Dec 21, 2014 to Jan 20, 2015

 

The Sun’s entry into Capricorn marks the beginning of winter (the Winter Solstice). It is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, a time when the light will grow as the temperatures fall. The celebration of Christmas (see Rick Levine’s The Gift of the Magi) is closely associated with this “return of the light,” representing new hope at a time of darkness.

The Capricorn personality reflects this idea of rising from the bottom to arrive at the top. It’s a “vertical” or hierarchical sign that’s particularly aware of its status or place in the pecking order. Defined rules help Capricorns keep track of where they are and they often excel in situations where there are clear benchmarks to measure their accomplishments.

This Ain’t No Ordinary Goat

Capricorn’s goat isn’t your garden variety can eater with a bell around its neck. This is a free mountain goat, able to scale the great heights under difficult circumstances. Like this animal, most Capricorns aren’t afraid of struggle. In fact, they often need a challenge to make their lives interesting.

Capricorn has also been represented as a goat-fish, a goat with the tail of a fish. This can be interpreted as describing the watery sensitivity that lies at the root of Capricorn’s ambition. Its often tough exterior masks a more vulnerable person inside. The idea of the goat-fish also suggests that a spiritual base (the fish) is the perfect balance to worldly aspirations.

The Mastery of Saturn

Ruled by (associated with) the planet Saturn, Capricorn’s about working within the boundaries of defined limits. Traditional astrologers sometimes viewed those born under this sign as overly serious, even melancholy. However, Saturn’s sense of order and necessity correlate perfectly with Capricorn’s desires to win within the rules of its particular game. This is a sign of commitment.

Saturn also reminds us of Capricorn’s focus which allows high levels of skill to be developed. It’s a sign of mastery. Whatever it does, Capricorn wants to be the very best. This intense focus is one reason why Capricorn is such a high achiever. It’s been said that Capricorn has one great natural skill: the ability to apply itself and master whatever it chooses to learn.

Capricorn is a cardinal sign, one that initiates one of the four seasons of the year (Aries, Cancer and Libra are the other cardinal signs). It’s also an earth sign, thus rooted in pragmatism (Taurus and Virgo are the other earth signs). This unique combination of initiative and realism makes Capricorn the perfect production machine. It sets its sights high, but is always aware of what means it will use to achieve its goals.

The Adult Child

Capricorns often take on adult responsibilities at an early age. This serves them later with a sense of maturity and patience beyond their years. However, this can also shorten the carefree playful time of childhood that’s necessary for emotional and creative development.

Many Capricorns have to learn how to have fun, to be free and foolish. A conscious effort to let go of goals and enjoy life for itself can be a difficult task for some born under this sign. Yet when this lesson is learned, it can be a delight to watch these “old” ones grow younger with time.

Rockers, Despots and Healers

A significant number of rock musicians were born in this supposedly serious sign. Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Jimmy Page, Rod Stewart, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin, Michael Stipe, Eddie Vedder, Ricky Martin, Dave Matthews and Kid Rock are all Capricorns.

Discipline and focus are central to Capricorns Tiger Woods and Jeff Bezos. Successful Capricorn performers include Jim Carrey, Andy Kaufman, Denzel Washington, Anthony Hopkins, Mel Gibson and Nicholas Cage.

The darker side of this sign is represented by Richard Nixon, Mao Tse-tung, Joseph Stalin, J. Edgar Hoover and Dr. Laura Schlessinger. The balance can be found in heriod Capricorns Albert Schweitzer and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Introducing…Capricorn

Introducing…Capricorn

Our hard working Capricorn was a challenging character to develop. Previously we had focused on the goat portion of our Capricorn, but now we were looking at his fish half as well!

There are many theories on why the Capricorn Goat is often portrayed as half goat-half fish. All stories seem to have common threads around the hard working and sexually intense nature of Capricorn personalities. Capricorns enjoy hard work and enjoy the pleasures and satisfaction of intense physical contact. They thrive on difficult or complex problem solving. It is thought that the Capricorn goats struggle with taking the same intensity they have toward their work into their bedroom.

Their aggressive passion and sexual nature was frowned upon by the Greek Gods. The Gods decided to punish him so they turned his lower half into a fish so he could no longer act on his sexual desires. As a result his sexuality was stunted and all that repressed energy was redirected into an intense focused work ethic. So our modern day Capricorns have hints toward this repressed sexuality. They enjoy work and struggle with their need and inability to let loose physically. So, we decided to represent this persona as a very hard working character. He’s completely focused on getting the job done. His large wrench conveys his ability to tackle any job, any size. It also can be used to fine tune the tension of his tale, adjusting his direction and control his sexual desires.

Physical Characteristics

Physically, our Capricorn is not necessarily well kept and clean. He’s less concerned with his physical appearance. He looks at life as a big job that needs to be done. He’s concerned with doing it right, not necessarily how he looks doing it. He has a handy apron to keep his tools at the ready. Again, functional clothes are more important than fashion to our Capricorn goat.

His eyes are focused. Intense but not threatening. His expression is one of intense thought and focus. He’s generally not looking at someone, but rather through someone. He’s not scary or mean, he’s on the side of progress and will jump from camp to camp if it means he can complete something he starts.

Zodiac Super Power

Our Capricorn’s super power are his goggles. He wears them on his head and puts them on when he needs to see details through chaos. He can refine and drill down to the smallest grain of sand in a dust storm. He can focus amid chaotic smoke storms. His goggles act as night vision when others can not see obvious solutions, our Capricorn can. He will put his goggles on and get the job done. His ability to stay calm focused on solutions makes him the most reliable and dilient sign of the Zodiac.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Yule, December 21st

If you made it through yesterday’s cosmic slugfest relatively unscathed, give yourself a row of virtual gold stars. Now you have another 24 hours to conquer with a very deft touch since the universe is going all in right now with a mega-dose of celestial madness. First of all, keep in mind that several of Saturday’s difficult sky configurations are still on the astro-psychic radar screen — only more undercover. Now Venus forming a supportive, 60-degree link with healing maestro Chiron (2:04AM) followed 2+ hours later by the Moon in Sagittarius forming a harmonious trine to buoyant and optimistic Jupiter in Leo (4:36AM) makes it seem that all is well, but this 120-degree contact also begins a long void lunar uncertainty cycle that lasts until 5:26PM (when the Moon enters Capricorn). Ceres gets into the act, too, by converging with the Moon (5:00AM) — adding another note of supposed calm and productivity. Then a few hours later, the testing of humanity begins in earnest as Mercury forms a potentially abrasive, 135-degree tie with Jupiter (11:03AM), Uranus halts its recent retrograde motion at 13 degrees of Aries (2:46PM) to begin a forward-moving cycle that lasts until July 26, 2015, the Sun switch its allegiance from fiery Sagittarius to earthy Capricorn (3:04PM), and the New Moon materializes 2+ hours after that (5:37PM and energizing 1 degree of Capricorn). A station of Uranus — the key planet of shocks, surprises, anarchy, rebellion, revolution, genius, intuition, high-technology, jokers, wild cards, out-of-the-box thinking and behavior, the multi-media, the nervous system, anxiety, breakthroughs in consciousness or breakdowns — is not exactly compatible with the Sun and Moon striding forcefully into Capricorn (the key sign of the zodiac ruled over by Saturn). Therefore, this sacred turning point of the year — the solstice, when the Sun appears to stand still in its vertical arc — is receiving an unusually high injection of adversarial energies (represented by play-by-the-rules Saturn and always-unpredictable Uranus). Do your best to pursue your objectives today with self-confidence and a calm demeanor. Like the Little Engine That Could, keep affirming the mantra of I think I can. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Astrology Notes for Yule, December 21

 

On the 21st, Uranus turns direct in motion as the Sun enters Capricorn. The forward motion of Uranus is more freedom-oriented and independent; some of the goals established while Uranus was retrograde become more apparent to others as you make changes to move toward them. When the Sun enters Capricorn, it passes through the sensitive zero degree of a Cardinal sign (known as the Aries Point) . The Ingress chart is in effect until the next Cardinal ingress of the Sun which is when the Sun enters Aries in March. As such, it is more important than the New Moon that occurs just about three hours later; the New Moon’s effect lasts about thirty days until the next New Moon in January. The Capricorn Ingress chart has Pluto and Venus in the Sixth House in Capricorn opposite the Ascendant and square Uranus in the Midheaven and square the North Node of the Moon in the Fourth House; the Ingress chart’s Sixth House is loaded with planets —in order: Ceres, the Moon, the Sun, Mercury Pluto and Venus— so expect a lot of emphasis on health and health care, work and the work place , responsibilities, and your basic sense of well-being which may feel threaten by the stresses and changes of the Grand Cross. Keep in mind that something new may emerge from all those Pluto/ Scorpio ashes that will be better, more up to date, and much more satisfactory. Uranus in the Midheaven may topple heads of state or those in positions of governmental and corporate authority unexpectedly as their mistakes and failures are exposed to public scrutiny. Jupiter in Leo square Saturn in Scorpio inhibits economic growth; Saturn in the Fifth House indicates losses or setbacks through risk-taking while Jupiter in the Second House may be over-optimistic. This combination may also feature worries revolving around children, lack of time for a robust social life, or disappointments in love. Saturn trines the Ingress chart’s Midheaven in Pisces so that you are stabilized , realistic, reasonable, practical, and not too likely to sink into the “blame” game or into negative habit patterns (over -eating, drugs, alcohol, over-spending). Mars in Aquarius sextile Uranus in the Midheaven shows energy to cope with change as well as energy directed into regrouping, reorganizing, and studying your options so that you can move forward enthusiastically and make progress toward a specific goal. Neptune in Pisces sextile the Sun, Moon, and Mercury stimulates imagination and intuition; since it is coupled with Chiron in the Ninth House, the door is open for something perfect even if all appears chaotic temporarily.

Your Planet Tracker for Dec. 14th: Venus in Capricorn, Now till Jan 3, 2015

Planet Tracker

Venus in Capricorn

Dec 10, 2014 to Jan 3, 2015

 

Venus, the planet of love, acceptance, pleasure and the arts, is now in earthy Capricorn. This is an interesting combination of soft and hard. Sweet Venus likes things the easy way, but Saturn-ruled Capricorn is about focus, commitment and effort.

This is a time when love must be earned. Effort counts as much as heart, if you want to earn the approval of others. Relationships are built on shared goals and a willingness to work through the hard spots. Venus in Capricorn rewards maturity in relationships, helping to define problems and making a commitment to solve them.

This might not be the most romantic placement for Venus, but there are some real advantages here nevertheless. One is the ability to achieve creative or artistic goals even if you don’t have the greatest natural talent. Capricorn rewards those who stick with the difficult tasks, rather than flashy folks who don’t want to get their hands dirty with effort.

Venus in Capricorn means that respect equals love. We may have to work a little harder to be appreciated now, but we’re building a solid foundation of self-respect that can ensure the continuation and growth of the relationships that count most in our lives.

A good number of young royalty have Venus in Capricorn, including Princesses Caroline and Stephanie of Monaco, England’s Prince Andrew, King Juan Carlos of Spain and the late king of rock ‘n’ roll, Elvis Presley. Both Caroline and John F. Kennedy Jr. were also born with this combination.

Actors Anthony Hopkins, Jeff Bridges, Faye Dunaway, Diane Keaton and Danny Devito are Venus in Capricorn people, as were tragic comics Andy Kaufman and John Belushi and athletes Michael Jordan, Monica Seles and Lee Trevino. Venus in Capricorn is found in the charts of politicians Dick Gephardt and Dick Cheney, and singers Bonnie Raitt, Naomi Judd, Dolly Parton and Neal Diamond

Get A Jump on Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Thursday, December 11th

High expectations motivate us to share our feelings today as the proud Leo Moon joins buoyant Jupiter and trines the radiant Sun. However, sensual excitement and intellectual adventure take a back seat to social etiquette and common sense until January 3 while romantic Venus remains in earthy Capricorn, the sign of the practical Mountain Goat. Although we are attracted to the idea of unrestrained freedom, we’re happiest now when we know the rules.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re ready to hit the accelerator and show the world what you can do now, but a more rational voice advises you to be responsible. Although you see new possibilities everywhere, consider the relationships you have already created before running off in search of something else. Even if the grass on the next hill appears greener, remember that unexplored territory often seems more colorful when viewed from a distance. Slowing down for a few weeks is a small price to pay for the potential of finding lasting satisfaction.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It seems as if you are being covered by a warm and cozy security blanket now that your key planet Venus is taking up residence in a fellow earth sign. This gentle transit might not make all your troubles disappear, but it certainly can give you a firm footing on which to improve your finances, career and love life. There’s no need to be greedy now; even modest gains in any of these areas can substantially enhance the quality of your life.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Beware of unnecessary detours when it comes to relationships, since you may have a few weeks of complications ahead. You naturally prefer splashing around in the surf, but are now left unsatisfied unless you consciously tread into deeper waters. The problem is that diving into serious emotions can make you uneasy. Even if you’re eager to explore your feelings, they might not easily give up the wisdom you seek. Don’t wait for a push from reality; get ahead of the curve now, while you can.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might think romance should be like a walk in the park with charming Venus now strolling through your 7th House of Partnerships. However, it’s not sunshine and roses because the Goddess of Love demands more structure while within conservative Capricorn’s domain. This cosmic conflict creates a bit of a problem, since you may be offered the emotional security you want, along with too many restrictions. What price are you willing to pay for a relationship? Whether it seems like it or not, the decision is all yours.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It’s not that the party is completely over yet, but you might catch glimpses of a more serious future. Although all good things must come to an end, you can stretch the fun for a while with your attention to detail and commitment to work. But lighthearted play won’t come easily today unless you make time for something more practical. Paradoxically, you may not be fully satisfied now unless you have a particular goal in mind.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s not always easy to let someone get to close to you, but resourceful Venus now rides to your rescue as she travels through your 5th House of Love and Romance. This won’t remove every stop sign you’ve carefully erected around your heart, but it can help you to be more emotionally expressive. Let your feelings flow, even if some interactions seem too scripted for your own taste. A few sprinkles of spontaneity are sufficient to spice up the stew.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re in for a round of self-criticism as you examine the reality of your feelings, your home and those structures that cannot easily be changed. Your emotions become subservient to the everyday responsibilities of your life. Fortunately, you can still be creative and have your share of fun. Nevertheless, you must make your life work within the restrictions that are currently being imposed. Paradoxically, accepting that which cannot be changed bring a new sense of freedom.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your professional trajectory may not be progressing as you wish. Fortunately, you’re quite willing to jump in and deal with the issues. One thing is for sure: denial will not get you anywhere now. Situations that have appeared impossible in the past begin to transform and evolve right in front of your eyes. Communication is the key to your success. Start slowly and proceed with unwavering determination if you want to move mountains.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may be somewhat unsure of your emotions today, even if you thought you knew how you felt yesterday. You normally lead with your heart, inspiring yourself and others with your passion. But, perhaps you now begin to realize that you created a relationship situation that seems to be growing too restrictive. Take responsibility for your feelings before making any moves you might regret.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

In your heart of hearts, you might not believe that money and love should come without a cost. You’re accustomed to working hard for what you receive and, luckily, your efforts will be rewarded. As sweet Venus moves through your sign for the next few weeks, you notice that it’s easier to get along with others. In fact, it’s even easier to get along with yourself. Your newly found optimism is the main theme of the month ahead. Spread joy wherever you go and enjoy others as they enjoy you.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re more attracted to fantasy than to reality now that Venus is hiding out in your 12th House of Escapism. Nevertheless, your desires are quite real so put up whatever walls are necessary to function in your mundane world. Ultimately, your current tendency is to lock up your needs within the recesses of your subconscious while playing caretaker to someone you love. But avoid falling into the role of martyr. Push your heart into the open and build a stable foundation for your future.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Even your most meaningful encounters now take on an air of casual friendship. Passions are subdued with Venus the Goddess of Love visiting emotionally conservative Capricorn. In fact, this is a wonderful time to schedule a variety of social engagements, but the current planetary signs don’t singularly emphasize romance. Whether you are a solo act or part of a duo, make time to enjoy the company of others while the cosmic energy is on your side.
