NEW MOON in Capricorn – 1st of January 2014!!!!!!!!!

NewMoonCapricorn-300x300What a strenuous way of starting the year as from January 1, 2014!!!!!!!!!!!, with a New Moon at 11º of Capricorn forming an ‘almost’ exact Grand Cross, yet not as exact as it will be in April 2014. But close enough to shake us a little. We go into this lunation with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Pluto at 11 ° of Capricorn, (Venus also in Cap but further away at 28º).
A conglomerate of 5 planets in the same sign and degree and all forming a virtually exact 90 ° angle to Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries, which are opposed. Jupiter in Cancer at 16°, completes the missing leg of the cross.
You don’t have to be a genius, nor an astrologer, to realize the symbolism of a Cosmic Cross, formed by 7 planets! In popular language when we say. “what a cross!”, usually we are complaining about an unwieldy situation. As if something external to us, a heavy load that we must carry on our shoulders, as that man whom we call Jesus, did more than 2000 years ago.
People who make demands from us, demands we can’t easily meet, situations that collapse, bosses, professors, teachers, parents, lawyers, the Bank, business partners, etc, which in more than one way obstruct our freedom and prevent us from moving forward, by holding on to old values, old-fashioned mentality, in total disagreement with current needs and times.
This is a month when we will have 2 new moons, the second is in January 30 at 11º of Aquarius, with the full moon in Cancer, on the 16. Strong cardinal activity, which only means one thing: ACTION!
Without wanting to be “a bird of ill omen”, which ever way you look at it, it sounds like a “challenge”, to once more take a look at situations that must be resolved, because things are not as they should be.Even if you are in a good moment at this time, even if you divorce yourself from what happens in the rest of the world, the situation is like this: Spain, just adopted the law that makes abortion illegal. Once again!!! India and Uganda, passed laws which make homosexuality illegal, again! If you are found in a situation that shows or suggest your homosexuality, you can go to jail for the rest of your life. WHAAAT!!!!!!!! and it’s the situation in South Sudan, in Istanbul and Ukraine, and the 2 million Syrian refugees in the Lebanon borders. Insecurity, poverty and corruption in most of the world escapes our hands. Question: Have we all gone crazy or what’s going on? This is what this Grand Cross in Cardinal signs is showing us. Let’s pay attention. We are confronted with the fact that we must act in a way and make decisions that none of us want to take, but it does not leave us another option. As Uranus opposes Mars, we feel we must start a revolution, we must say NO to the established corrupted systems, because we want honest politicians and officials who engage in organizing our lives in the best way possible, for the good of the community. While it is very difficult that everyone is in agreement,that’s what a Government is for, to try to resolve those differences. Isn’t it?
The pressure to get rid of that which prevents us from feeling free and happy will be so intense, through out January and April.If we had already resigned themselves to a particular situation, everything begins to shake inside of us again, to remind us that that is not ok. We can not resign ourselves to being unhappy, because the Cosmos will always push us to achieve our goals and our desires, to become all that we have come here to be. The “crappy” (vulgar or not sophisticated) version of ourselves, is not allowed in this lifetime, we must strive to become the best version of ourselves. Otherwise, we get sick, we go out of balance and harmony with ourselves and live a half-gas life, which only ends in disease. Jupiter, in turn, forms a Trine to Saturn already at 20º of Scorpio. These two planets are forming a trine during the month of May too, due to the retrograde motion of each. This is a positive influence and which prevents us from surpassing our limits, becoming aware of our limitations and talents.
Pluto represents our need for evolution and survival, and there is no way of saying to that:-“sorry, but I stop here, I don’t want to evolve anymore” – that is impossible! If you’re alive, changes and developments follow. It doesn’t matter what age you are. One of the most important qualities of Capricorn, is that this sign sets its goals and arrives there, yes or YES. The NO option, is OFF for these people. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. They know how to wait and do it safely without losing too much on the way. They know that it should be a step forward and often two back, but always returning to the forward and upward motion. The conjunction of Pluto to Mercury, will reveal to us more corruption of the individuals in power. At an individual level, it’ll help us confront our secrets and ponder on why we hide what we hide. What is that we do not want to show even to ourselves?
If all this sounds a little dramatic, is because it is. But drama is not synonymous of disaster, but of “pivotal”. These are vital moments, when the actions of each of us are very important. Our awareness of the world that surrounds us and the importance of our decisions is perhaps the most positive lesson of this lunation. Good time for resolutions of the new year. I encourage you to leave behind those parts of you that choke you and stop you from evolving. If you’re saying goodbye to someone, focus on the good things that the situation or relationship have left you with and open the door to the new. Remember that everything that comes to a close is because it has nothing else to offer you. Never mind how sad is to say goodbye.

Happy beginning of the year to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

More on Pluto in Capricorn

On Pluto in Capricorn symbolNov 26 at 6:36 pm, GMT, Pluro finally re entered Capricorn, where it will stay until 2024. Almost 16 years that we will actually need to fix this decaying financial system and obsolete institutions that need renewal.

And Pluto in Capricorn will do just that or rather, during the transit of Pluto through Capricorn we will experience that.

Last time that this planet was in Capricorn, 1763-1778, started with The Proclamation of 1763, signed by King George III of England, which prohibited any English settlement west of the Appalachian Mountains and required those already settled in those regions to return cast in an attempt to case tensions with the Native Americans.

In 1765, The Stamp Act is passed, by the British Parliament, imposing the first direct tax on the American Colonies, to offset the high costs of the British military organisation in America. Thus, for the first time, in the 150 years old history of the British colonies in America, the Americans will pay tax directly to England, instead of to their own local legislatures in America.

In 1768, Samuel Adams of Massachusetts,  writes a Circular Letter opposing Taxation without representation and called for the colonists to unite in their actions against the British Government.

This was the beginning of a series of financial situations between the Colonies and England that ended with the Declaration of the American Independence in 1776.

So now, Pluto comes back to Capricorn for the first time since then, and look what is happening. The American financial system, not to say Capitalism is  on the brink of collapse. If you think I am exaggerating you are probably right, but let’s wait and see what happens when Pluto in Cap, comes to the square with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Libra. A cardinal grand cross which will be exact on August 1st, 2010.

And I am not being negative at all, i actually think this is the opportunity we needed to re-arrange and re-structure some of this old financial institutions, which are now proving to be ineffective.

But there is another side to Pluto ( the one that sheds light into dark areas) in Capricorn (authority figures, father), and if we look at the first entry of this planet in Cap, which occurred in January 26th,  2008 till June 14th, when it re-entered Sag, until last Wednesday, we see that it was in January that the Fritzl ( the Austrian pedophile) who fathered children with his own daughter, who he had kept for 24 years in a cellar or underground apartment, built by himself…….

Also in America, the CIA intervened in a case of sexual abuse of a religious sect, and went on to take the children away from the compound where they lived.

And now, just as Pluto re-enters Cap, on the same day, the trial of another father (Saturn) who fathered children with his two daughters, who he abused physically and sexually for years comes to light.

Event that poses the question of :”how come nobody realized what was happening?, meaning, neighbors, hospitals, where the daughters where taken for abortions or miscarriages, how come that nobody in 20 years realized and denounced this man or helped these women”?

What happened with the social services and how many more abusive fathers will we see during the Pluto in Capricorn journey? Not just biological fathers. Men in position of authority is a Capricornian theme, and Pluto will bring the dirty laundry into the open, so that we, can bring into our conscience all these issues we need to work on, as humans.

How come nobody realized what was going on? What is that telling us?

Perhaps, that the time for unity, collaboration and involvement has arrived.
