Happy New Year! Can you feel it? We are definitely in *new* territory now! Think of when you just move in to a new place: you are exhausted & excited ~ you are hopeful & anxious ~ resources are probably low (energy and funds) ... and now, you are faced with *un-packing* and setting up *new* sacred space. We have just moved in to a new realm of existence and we must get "set up". Walk with me here ... you just moved, and you did a tremendous amount of purging as you packed and prepared to *move* ... as you unload your "stuff" in this new space, you realize there is more to be cleared, things don't work or fit the space and you release attachment to things you've held near & dear for some time ~ you *lighten* up and purge a little more before starting anew. Bask in this feeling for a moment. Lightness. Space. Room to Breathe. Then turn to meet the challenges and tasks of creating a whole new structure to your *LIFE*. You've moved and you must get to know your surroundings as well as those you share it with (community). You will get a rhythm soon enough. Welcome to Capricorn! Welcome to 2010!!
Capricorn brings the energy to handle your "business" (be it personal or professional). It is the time when you are most acutely aware of things that may not be fun or exciting but are fundamentally necessary to support your life. Responsibility. That's the "traditional" vibe. How about we breathe new life in to that by adding some renewed dedication to finding / creating / accessing / activating the passion and energy ~ to create a *new* structure and foundation, as well as cultivate *new* responses ~ your ability to respond to Life has evolved over time. 2010 ushers you in to the *new* but with Mercury and Mars Retrograde at the turn of the year, (and Saturn, Capricorn's ruler, soon follows 1/13) you are further guided that a deep reflective review is underway and must run its course before implementing new your ideas and taking new actions that support your essential needs and deepest desires.
Mercury rules your ideas, thoughts, perceptions and your voice, while Mars rules your passions, actions, deepest desires (and means of attaining them), as well as how you deal with conflict and confrontation. The sign lessons point you toward responsible thoughts, words and deeds (Mercury in Capricorn) and deep, authentic self-love, courage and innate creativity (Leo). These things are what you are currently supported to re-define.
Capricorn gives structure to Cancer's flow, you have a chance to (re)define (Saturn) and connect with authentic emotional (Cancer) and material (Capricorn) security. These energies require you to access that which nourishes you (Cancer) on the deepest level so that you are fortified to make your unique contribution to society (Capricorn). *HOW* you navigate this time will be the key to success and completion. If Capricorns would engage positive Cancer (the Empath) and *feel* their way, their decisions would be more heart-based and confident. Use this time of year, every year, to be your own Architect of Life, design a new structure, play with ideas of the tangible and how it can come to be through your own imagination and efforts ... then follow directions and do things in stages of *building*, take your time so you can correct mistakes as they happen rather than have to re-do anything major and focus on stabilizing your foundation in a way that supports your own evolution and dreams.
Your evolution is supported completely, and primarily from the invisible realm. Your willingness, commitment and dedication is all that is necessary now to meet your fundamental needs in a renewed way.
All Seeds Germinate in Darkness:
How We Meet Our Fundamental Needs in the New Era
"One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that was going on inside himself. He said, "My son, it is between two wolves ... One is evil: anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is good: joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one I feed." (from Aluna Joy Yaxkin / Dec 2007)
As the above parable illustrates so beautifully, we always have a choice as to which part of our shadow and light nature we will feed in any given moment, and both are widely available at this time because we are at a crossroads. We are beginning a major, new chapter, individually and collectively. And the choices we make this year will set the tone for years to come, so be present as you choose each thought, each emotion, every word, every response and every action!
The power of "now" includes a potent connection to Source because we are in the void. All seeds germinate in the darkness and depending on what your "intent" is, will determine the "seeds" you plant and the quality of nourishment/care you give them to grow properly. Will you "grow" (create) more darkness or Light in your life? body? home? environment? community? planet?
Scientists claim that 95% of our Universe is invisible, unquantifiable and considered "dark matter", they don't fully understand its magnitude or power, they cannot define it, they cannot see or touch it, but they know it's there. They can detect a "force" - a "movement" - and an "energy" that clearly exists and affects the 5% of matter they can see, touch and define. This speaks volumes to the energy of creation. This says to me that 95% of the power to create is INVISIBLE! This is another way of saying that you create with intent, emotion and passion (all invisible) ... thought precedes physical manifestation ... imagination creates reality. If we are only accessing a minute percentage of our brains, are we also only accessing 5% of the Universe and all its power, magic and gifts? The point is, you are here, living and awake during a monumental time in our planet's history, what will you create during the time you are here and how will it have meaning for you?
Our thoughts are manifesting with lightening speed, sometimes before we've even been able to complete the thought, the Universe has revealed the results before our eyes. The choices you make this year are vital to which energies and ideas you will "feed" and manifest going forward. The mass consciousness is rooted in fear, which is where the powers that be would want them, docile, controlled and predictable. However, many are awakening from their deep slumbers and recognizing their personal truth and remembering what a short period of time we have here on this planet. We must maximize the time we have left being and doing what creates and maintains FLOW ... the flow of love, the flow of energy exchange, the flow of creative juices, the flow of abundance ... flow and reciprocity.
Planetarily, we are at this crossroads, truly things could go either way, so it is up to each powerful individual to "feed" the good ~ the Light within Self and others. Create the community you want to be a part of ~ by "being" what you want to attract. "Be the change you want to see in the world." (Ghandi) Inhale back your own authority, be responsible for who you are, how you feel and what you create in this world, visible and invisible. Be honest with your Self and check all aspects of your personal structure and foundation (for your life). What supports you when NOTHING & NO ONE else does? Are you going to continue on the path you are already on? or choose a new, uncharted path? I say, use the next quarter to review, then move forward when Saturn does in May.
Every single person has
capabilities, abilities and gifts.
Living a good life depends on
whether those capabilities can be used,
abilities expressed and gifts given.

2010 ~ Happy New Year! I am so excited about this new year and all the opportunities indicated by the planetary alignments. In each coming year, we are being led to a new level ... of existence and consciousness. There is nothing to fear but apathy and indecision. I highly recommend taking some time to set some priorities and goals because we are in for fast-paced and magical times. The year initiates with Mercury and Mars Retrograde indicating that our ideas and actions are under review as we launch 2010. And before Mercury goes Direct, Saturn will join them (1/13) so your definition of reality will be revised over the next several months and Jupiter enters Pisces completing a 12-year journey through the zodiac. Consider the next 1-year process to be the *womb* of development of a *new* 12-year Truth/Story, personally and collectively. Because who you are and what you want has changed, your 3-D reality naturally follows so the overall theme this year is to re-structure on many levels ~ in preparation for future forward movement.
This time 1 year ago ... reflect on the "before and after" of 2009! Very poignant!
[Previously ~ 2009 (w. minor edits)]
There is what's called a "Mystical Rectangle", which is a huge *kiss* from the Universe, setting us on this new path and supporting the restructuring we all must do, in such a beautiful way. The Super / Full Moon in Cancer and Sun, still in Capricorn, criss-cross Saturn in Virgo and Uranus in Pisces, which is on-going for two years (2008-2010) so we will end up with *several kisses* over 2009 & 2010 (and beyond). The Sun/Moon dynamic is balancing and integrating your inner and outer / private and public selves so they can begin to "match" better (though you may still be at the delicate initiatory stages). The Saturn/Uranus dynamic is balancing and integrating your reality and your consciousness, your physical and spiritual, your body and mind, and the new foundation that will better support you living a more awakened, liberated life that reflects your current Truth & Purpose.
This first quarter is vital. January thru April are preparing you for a magical and potently creative and healing time come May, June & July is when Jupiter can bring expanded consciousness in the realm of Light, love and the community, as well as Jupiter's signature luck, abundance and expansion. This quarter, make sure you release that which you do not want 'expanded' and made bigger.
Jupiter Enters Aquarius ~ is going to stir things up for sure! Jupiter expands anything it touches, and this year it will be shining its gigantic light on Aquarian issues: humanitarian issues, the community, unconventional solutions, radical theories, objective broad overviews, expanded visions, and individual contributions that make the collective *whole* work better. Keep in mind that it takes Jupiter 12 years to move throughout the zodiac, so this is our chance to expand our individual and collective realms to be more inclusive of all souls, honoring all belief systems as Truth in their own right, and detachment from moral judgments made about things we, perhaps, don't entirely understand.
Saturn Oppose Uranus (2 of 5) ~ This is a Collective Activation that will *ping* us 5 times over a 2-year period (2009-2010) and it made me think of the "5-Act Structure" of a theatrical performance. There are many breakdowns and descriptions of the 5-Act Structure ... here's the "Kelly version":
ACT 1 ~ Introduction to the players and establishment of points and possibilities, as well as the time & place
~ Astrologically: INITIATION
~ Nov 4, 2008
ACT 2 ~ Events accelerate, momentum builds, complications and complexities are revealed
~ Astrologically: TEST of what you've learned so far
~ Feb 5, 2009
ACT 3 ~ Climax of action, choices, critical mass & crossroads
~ Astrologically: INTEGRATION, assessment and compromise
~ Sept 15, 2009
ACT 4 ~ Descent, fear (false evidence appearing real), test of faith and reversal of fortunes
~ Astrologically: TEST of the quality of integration
~ Apr 16, 2010
ACT 5 ~ Resolution, transmutation and awakening to a new level of understanding
~ Astrologically: COMPLETION ... in preparation for initiation of a new kind
~ July 26, 2010 / Aries-Libra Axis
Venus Retrograde ~ is a blessing that comes approximately every year and a half. We are also amidst an 8-year Venus / Sun Cycle that only happens every 100-200 years, the last being 1882. This year you get to truly RE-Invent Your Self with Venus spending over 4-months in Aries, the sign that rules your Identity and the Infant on the Karmic Wheel. Definitely tune in to Venus through Pisces this year (JAN 3 - FEB 2), as that will feel most certainly like a cosmic womb preparing you to embark on a brand *NEW* leg of your personal, and our collective, journey.
And finally, as we approach the US inauguration of Barack Obama, to also encourage you to visualize this transition to include Capricorn's solid, responsible and cool energy, infused for about 60 hours prior to the election with potent Scorpio energy, shape-shifting us (individually and collectively) to own and honor Truth as Authority, rather than authority as truth. It is also good to acknowledge here that Ceres, Mercury and Saturn will be retrograde for inauguration suggesting the *PERFECT TIME* to re-vision your life and this country's administration (USA). Ceres in Virgo will assist in cultivating a healing that begins in each heart and expands to all living souls. Mercury in Aquarius will assist with re-thinking our collective definitions of family and community, leading us to a unique resolution that honors the Highest Good for all involved. And Saturn in Virgo, of course, will assist with healing the various systems and re-structuring all the major entities which support community life (government, health care, education etc). Whether you agree with Obama's politics or not, we must send him all the prayers, strength and good energy with rock-solid trust in the Universe to guide and direct his choices, knowing he is only the channel, the face on 'change' ~ he is NOT the Source.
