Before we get into it this week, id like to send out a very special shoutout to Tracy over at Serennu.com and Astrodispatch.com, without whom none of what I do would be possible.
Ah, Capricorn. Now there is some seriously awesome Astro going on at the 'mo, and even more on the way, not the least of which being Mars in Libra! I was starting to think he'd never leave...
Where was I? Ohyes, Amazingly Awesome Astro, that's right. Ok, so we all survived Mars in Virgo, right? Good. Now you can start putting those fabulous plans into action, and with all the hard work you just put into yourself, there has never been a better time to do it than right now. I know that all you want to do is just relax and just coast from here, but that's not in the
cards stars; No, this is Disaster Astro, and what you need to do right now is PUSH in order to make the greatness happen. Good things come to those who work their asses off.
The Sun and Moon- There is a square to Isis, who tells you to take matters into your own hands and not wait around for the Penny to drop. Get your ass in gear and get it done, minus the drama. A sextile to Sphinx hints that you may not know the full story, but do you really need to hear it? Is it better, just this once, to walk away instead of being strung along for an answer that might never come? A conjunction to Memoria reminds us of how far we have come, and whispers in your ear that yes, you are ready for this, and you will win, if you step up to the plate. A square to Child reinforces this, and demands that you grow up, and be mature about the situation while handling it with grace. A trine to Ascelpius tells you that you are your own best health care expert, because after all, who knows your body better than you? Eat right, exercise and take care of yourself. A square to Zeus drives you on and keeps you motivated by the end goal when all you want to do is quit. Stay in the game.
Mercury- Wow, the prankster is already in Leo, and is getting ready to go Retrograde. Yes, thats right kids, its time to get yourselves all in a tizzy over not signing contracts, ttalking on the phone too much, looking at cows crossways while whistling "Kemptown Races" or whatever the hell else you're not supposed to do during Mercury Retro. And then for all the rest of you who are too smart to fall into the hype, this Retro is going to be... well, now you're just going to have to wait for the post now, aren't you? Wouldn't want to give away the game... Anyways, lets look at aspects. There is a smexy sextile to Venus, so talk softly and say something sweet- It will go a long way. A trine to Uranus has your brain firing on all cylinders and charging ahead full force to help you stay on top of your game. Use it while you have it! A trine to Okyrhoe helps you see beyond the present moment to see the big picture, lending a fresh perspective on your situation. Be careful what you say to others who may not be able to see their way out of a paper bag, however. Another trine, to Chariklo, may leave you feeling like you are just waiting for the right moment to launch yourself out and into the life you're only dreaming of; Well that moment is now, so start the countdown to launch! A conjunction to Achilles helps you move forward confidently, but its up to you to stay humble and use this aspect in the right way. A square to Requiem tells you that there is no rest for the hustlers, and you have miles and miles to go before you sleep. A sextile to Orpheus helps you engender some allies to help further your cause, but be careful they don't have their own reasons for helping you...
Venus- Well, she's direct, I can say that much about her. A sextile to Uranus helps her focus on doing more than just partying all night and sleeping all day. He drags her kicking and screaming to Crossfit, until she discovers that she actually likes it! An opposition to Chariklo demands that you live your own life, and not allow yourself to be trapped by anyone else's definition of what it should be. A square to Elatus has you alternating between manic highs and deep lows emotionally, forcing you to walk the line between these two extremes. An opposition to Okyrhoe may give you a crisis of faith regarding something that really has not had enough time to develop. Breathe, give it some time before you pull the ripcord. A square to Teharonhiawako tells you to take action if something isn't working and speak up if something is going in the wrong direction. Its either that or go down with the ship; you choose. A sextile to Magdalena tells you to stay the course, and keep an open mind and open eyes to watch out for hidden dangers and possible opportunities. A square to Apollo tells us that you will need to acknowledge other people, what they are going through and how far they have come. You never know, you just might find answers in their struggle! Finally, a square to Apophis has you on the warpath, ready to tear down anything that gets in your way at the merest whim. Channel this constructively, work it out in the gym and use it to tear down what isn't working in your life
Mars- Mars goes from 60 to 0 on hitting Libra, breathing a quiet sigh of relief only to realize that he is in Bat Country. A second to pause before resuming the breakneck pace through the sky, please. Just one. Okay, 10. A trine to Asbolus shows that you need to just go in and smash something to bits in order to move on, The Bull in a China Shop approach is called for. Otherwise you'll just get caught up in indecision. A square to Tantalus shows that yes, you can have what you want, but you are going to need to put out your hand and grab it, its not just going to fall in your lap. Go get yours.
Jupiter- A conjunction to the South Node makes the way forward hard to see, so you revert back to some of your old tricks, and cause yourself unnecessary problems. Keep the faith, and avoid doing anything that you wouldn't want on camera. A square to Hygeia confirms this, and adds that whatever you do, make sure you are safe and get tested afterwards. A sextile to Sisyphus leaves you feeling drained beyond belief, so take some time away from the center stage for yourself. Finally, a square to Burney may leave you in a compromising situation: If you get caught, DO NOT LIE! It will go much, much worse for you when the truth does come out. Just own up to it, and take the consequences.
Old Dirty Bastard- An opposition to Eris forces you to face reality: Something is not working, and you keep trying to make it work when no one else is. Get out while you can, and you will be amazed at how much better you feel. A trine to Thereus confirms this, and tells you that you can handle the challenge of walking on your own two feet. Start believing in yourself. A square to Varuna tells us that something is brewing behind the scenes, and you do not want to be a part of it. If you are a part of it already, bail. A sextile to Quaoar tells you that you need to really focus on yourself and your personal growth, before you can really relate to others. Finally, a trine to Damocles threatens to bring the sword down and cut through whatever is in the way if you dont do it first. Trust me, its easier to do it yourself.
The Mad Scientist- The Famous square between him and Stormageddon is heating up, and will continue to do so for the rest of the year. Brace yourselves, you will see more pictures of melting mailboxes on reddit. A trine to Chariklo demands that you respect your own boundaries and those of the people around you, while at the same time allowing room for individual expression. Another trine, to Okyrhoe, helps you stand up for what you believe to be right, regardless of how much criticism you may suffer from doing so. Just do you, eat haters for breakfast. A square to Cyllarus reinforces this, telling you that you do in fact have everything that you need to meet your needs, if you step up and take it. Take pride in yourself and how far you have come, while being humble in your manner. A conjunction to Magdalena tells us that to get where you want to be, you have to be willing to get al ittle dirty, and whole lot scandalous. All's fair in 2012, right?
Neptune- A square to Ceres tells you that no matter what you do and how much you know that it isnt going to work out, those around you are still entitled to do things their way and you do not have the right to cut them off at the knees when they do it. Let go and focus on yourself, so that when it all hits the fan, you can snidely infer that you knew all along that it would not work out. An opposotion to Orcus demands that you stop living in a fantasy and get smart about what is happening in the here and now, and you better do it quickly. An opposition to House may indicates that you have gone as far as you can in a current location, and it may be time to move on to bigger and better things. Let it go, and move forward with as minimal drama as possible.
Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All- A trine to Elatus makes it easier for you to express the darker elements of your nature, and that may lead to some very awkward conversations if you're not careful. In this case, its better to ask permission than need to be bailed out in the morning. An opposition to Cyllarus brings out a compulsion to lash out at others and to project your psychological issues onto the unsuspecting populace. Try to, you know, avoid doing that. A trine to Apophis also indicates this, causing a lot of tension if you try to deny this within yourself. Acknowledge that this is coming from you, and give it an outlet or a channel. A sextile to Teharonhiawako helps you focus and channel all this appropriately, into creative and productive work like hitting the gym, writing, art or music. A trine to Apollo also confirms this, stressing that this may just be the best way to work with the darkness. A square to Magdalena makes it very difficult to keep your path, but very easy to take the easy way out and just preform at your lowest. Don't.
And that'll do it for this Cappy Full Moon, its wild and raw and slightly dangerous, so step lively. The potential for self-destruction is not to be underestimated BUT the potential for awesome and amazing IF YOU ARE HONEST WITH YOURSELF is even greater. So, go get your fabulous on.
Speaking of fabulous, go check out Starzina Starfish-Browne in Starzina Starfish-Browne's Time of The Month Horoscope for Cancer (not to be construed as a monthly pro-Cancer [the disease, not the sign] fundraiser. Such a thing would be quite dastardly and evil, and with all that we spend in healthcare, seemingly uneccessary [although possibly a great racket].) Anyway, go watch the video or she'll make good on her promise to come over and spank me like the dirty boy that I've been. Aw, who am I kidding, she's going to do that anyway.
