February’s lunar eclipse involves a self-centered Leo Moon supported in a Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus. These fiery-placed planets are not going to hold the Moon back but the Sun in Aquarius (with help from Jupiter in Libra) has other ideas. The mood is one of grandstanding and large gestures—but does all this sound and fury signify anything? Sometimes a blowhard just wants attention and doesn’t care if the audience is bored.

Details About This Eclipse

Date: February 10, 2017
Time of eclipse: 4:33 PM Pacific Time
Type: penumbral (weak in intensity)
Visible in: Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America.
At: 22º Leo
Nodal Orientation: Initiating. The eclipsed Moon conjunct North Node in Virgo creates an Initiating (not Releasing) nodal orientation.
Shadow Agents:  Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Libra

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
February 5 to 15
May 8 to 18
August 10 to 20
November 9 to 19

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A lunar eclipse is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event (unlike a solar eclipse, which is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event).  You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).  The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. You answer it. The Moon in Leo is on your doorstep, dressed in a fiery orange superhero costume. The Sun in Aquarius is behind the Moon, trying to hold him back. The Moon bursts into your living room, quickly followed by Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is wearing black, including a pencil skirt, and has a clipboard, with a pen tucked behind her ear. Uranus is covered in wires, trying to untangle them. All burst into your living room, where they land in a heap.
Moon (pulling himself out of the heap): And I want thunder and lightning and a big, big spotlight right on ME!
Uranus: I’m still working on untangling these wires I put away so badly last season. Then I’ll get to work on your special effects and lighting. Believe me, this is going to be SPEEEEcial!
Saturn (standing up and smoothing her clothes with dignity): I’m seeing this as the smash hit of the year. We’re going to get an award for this one!
Sun (finally walking in the door, followed by Jupiter): Are you guys remembering that it’s not just about making a splash, but that the critics will be watching and we want to make a good impression?
Moon: This production is MY baby! It’s an expression of ME! It’s going to go how I WANT it to go!
Jupiter: But have you really thought about what the audience wants?
Sun: Yes, have you put out any surveys on social media?
Uranus: That’s my department and I’m all over his social media!
Moon: They LOVE me on social media!
Sun: Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you have a big head?
Moon: No, NEVER! I really am this great.
The Moon in Leo seems unable to speak except in superlatives. There’s another knock at the door and the North Node in Virgo walks in. As the North Node approaches the Moon, the Moon begins to go dark.
Moon: Hey, stay away!
North Node: It’s eclipse time.
Sun: Thanks for coming, North Node. Thank goodness you’re in Virgo and have a sense of discernment. I think the Moon needs your input as a theatrical critic. What is your genuine opinion of this production?
North Node: It’s got a lot of holes in it.
Moon (getting darker): It’s not finished!
North Node: I really don’t think it’s going to be worth paying attention to.
Moon (getting darker still): I’m not ready!
Saturn (standing behind the Moon and propping him up): It’s ok dear, just go on with what you’re doing. Others see you as an authority and you can do what you want.
Uranus (also standing behind the Moon): Be the change you want to make in the world! It doesn’t matter what others think. Especially those stupid critics. They just want to tear you down.
Sun: This is a vanity play for you. It’s not enjoyable for the audience.
Jupiter: I totally concur. This isn’t just you broadcasting whatever you want. It’s a relationship with the audience. They have a choice about whether to watch.
Just then, the South Node in Pisces walks in the door. She’s carrying a scrying bowl.
South Node: Here’s what the future holds.
Everybody looks in the bowl to see what is to come. The water in the bowl is cloudy at first, then images form. Days flip by on a calendar, and a week later, the show opens. A newspaper appears on the following day, saying “the show flopped.” The critic has written an article about the show, calling it a narcissistic exercise in self-aggrandizement, doomed to implode in its own. . . manure. After another week the show closes due to lack of ticket sales. Watching all this, the Moon, at his darkest, flops down on the sofa and bursts into tears.
Moon (bellowing tearfully): What should I do?
Sun: Still the center of attention, aren’t you? Before it was all about your bellows. Now it’s all about your tears.
Jupiter: Are you ready to actually listen?
Moon: Yes!
Jupiter: Think of it as a dialogue. You have a relationship with the audience. What do they actually want to see? What do they need from you?
Moon: I’m having an epiphany. I need to rethink this whole thing. I need to listen to the audience. It’s not about me.
Sun: Yes, I think some THINKING is exactly the point. You’ve been doing, not thinking.
The Moon starts to brighten up again.
Moon: I don’t know how to pay attention to the audience’s needs and interests. Will you help me?
Everyone: Of Course!
Jupiter: We only needed to be invited.
North and South Nodes (in unison): Our work here is done.
They lock arms and stroll out the door while the rest of the group begins brainstorming the next season’s show.

This year, Saturn enters into a square with Chiron, which lasts almost a year and spans 21 to 27º of Mutable signs, affecting those with Sun in Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo everywhere. Chiron is the planet of wounding and healing while Saturn rules authoritarianism and hierarchy. What could this stressful planetary aspect mean? The script below describes one way it could go, but first, how will you know if this even matters to you?

Does this transit affect you?

If you were born within the following dates, you will feel this transit strongly:
December 11 through 19 of any year
March 10 through 17 of any year
June 10 through 18 of any year
September 13 through 20 of any year

This post may seem like a statement about world events, but it’s also a metaphor for events inside all us human beings. This post is for you if. . .

  • You’ve become aware of some deep wounding in your life and don’t know what to do about it
  • You face the same (seemingly karmic or fated) situations over and over again, and always you feel like the victim
  • You’re ready to heal the wound instead of escaping the responsibility

How Saturn square Chiron works
(this part is technical, but brief)

The connection between Saturn and Chiron is strongest when it’s exact and there are 3 days this year when that happens. I’ll show you images of these connections below but first, please know that if one of those days happens to be your birthday or within a few days on either side of it, then Saturn and Chiron will have powerful lessons expressly for you in this birthday year. A reading of your birthday chart (called a Solar Return) can help you discover what it means for your year and how to use it to the fullest capacity. These are the dates of the exact Saturn-Chiron connections this year: December 28, 2016, April 30, 2017 and November 2, 2017.

The first pass happens on December 28, 2016, while Saturn is direct at 21º Sagittarius and Chiron (also direct) is at 21º Pisces. If you have anything in 21º of a Mutable sign—such as your Sun, Moon or Ascendant, and so on—you will feel this (see diagram for pass 1).

 

Saturn square Chiron pass 1

The second pass happens on April 30, 2017, while Saturn is retrograde and Chiron is direct and both are at 27º of their signs. If you have anything in 27º of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo, you will feel this (see diagram for pass 2).

 

 

Saturn square Chiron pass 2

The third pass is where this transit ends, on November 2, 2017 with Saturn direct at 24º Sagittarius while Chiron is still retrograde in 24º Pisces. This will affect you if you have anything in 24º of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo (see diagram for pass 3).

Saturn square Chiron pass 3

What could this stressful planetary aspect mean?
The following story illustrates one way it could go. . .

On board a large sailing vessel filled with a small city of people, Saturn has arrived at the coastline of the first island in an archipelago. He is the head of a large contingent of missionaries. There is a glow around him as he steps forth from the ship. On dry land, he looks around for who’s in charge.
Saturn: (to a Human Being he finds on the beach): Take me to your leader!
The Human Being is completely in wonder at the strange clothing and strange objects carried by the Boat People who are now crowding onto the beach. They follow Saturn in a straight, organized line to the village, where the Human Being announces the arrival of strangers in their midst. Human leads Saturn straight to Chiron, a religious leader wearing comfortable island garb, tending his fire and minding his own business.
Human Being: Chiron, strangers have come!
Chiron: I’m not terribly interested. I’m in Pisces. I’ve been sitting here in meditation for several months and I can tell you these strangers bring no good with them.
Chiron scowls at Saturn.
Saturn: We’ve brought you a wonderful thing. It’s called religion.
Chiron: We don’t need your religion here.
But from behind Chiron peeps a Young Woman who is looking with interest at a Young Man among the Boat People. She smiles and he smiles back.
Chiron: Can’t you see we already have religion?
Saturn: Our religion is the true one. It’s the only one that has reality. We’re offering to include you in it.
Chiron: Is that an offer or a demand?
Saturn: It’s an offer of course!
Chiron: Not if it comes at the point of a sword.
Saturn: But you are savages! Don’t you want to come into the modern era?
Chiron: What does history say? After the missionaries come the colonists. After the colonists come the traders. After the traders come the businessmen. Before much time has passed as we reckon it, we who have lived on this land for many more generations than we can name will find that our land is seized, owned (an idea foreign to us) and that we are no longer allowed to live on it.
Saturn: Ridiculous! My people believe in one universal truth. Your people have lost their way. We are here to guide you back. Why aren’t you grateful?
Chiron. I am grateful. I am grateful for the green, green forest and the wealth of fish in the sea and the wide blue sky I get to live under. But for you showing up here? No, I’m not grateful.
Saturn (who hasn’t been listening): Yes, a few of us might have to move in, and we might need to make space for them, but is that really a problem? Where’s your generosity?
Chiron: We belong to the land, she does not belong to us. We can not own her, therefore we can not give her away. She is not ours to give. This land sustains us. Without it, we will perish. Is this your gift? That we should perish for your business interests?
Saturn: I’m not a businessman, but if I was, I’d say that your people could use some jobs. And there are some lovely resources around here you could be leveraging more powerfully. Perhaps you should start a tourist industry?
Chiron: So you would enslave us as well.
He sighs.
Chiron: We don’t have guns to fight you. I suppose this will go as it always has. Your arrogance will win and ours will be the ultimate sacrifice.
Chiron walks into his own fire and stands in it, singing as he burns. When there are only ashes left, his people mourn. Ultimately what is left is a story of a martyr who loved his home and his people, and resisted colonization until death.
Saturn: What have I done here?
And the Boat People move in, bringing religion, commerce, property ownership, guns and syphilis with them.

This year, Saturn enters into a trine with Uranus, which lasts most of the year and spans 20 to 26º of Fire signs, affecting those with planets in Sagittarius, Aries and Leo everywhere. Uranus is the Revolutionary while Saturn is the Traditionalist. The trine is a harmonious aspect, suggesting that these two very dissimilar characters will be able to get along and share power smoothly. But how? The story below describes one way it could go, but first, how will you know if this even matters to you?

Does this transit affect you?

If you were born within the following dates, you will feel this transit strongly:
December 11 through 18 of any year
April 9 through 16 of any year
August 12 through 19 of any year

This post may seem like a statement about world events, but it’s also a metaphor for events inside all us human beings. This post is for you if. . .

  • You’re trying to make a major shift in the way you’ve always done things, and you’re ready for it to be easy
  • You have difficulty letting go of the old and making way for the new because you’re either too traditional or too reactionary or too just plain stubborn
  • You’re ready for an easier way and for changes that benefit everyone, not just those on top

The connection between Saturn and Uranus is strongest when it’s exact and there are 3 days this year when that happens. I’ll show you images of these connections below but first, please know that if one of those days happens to be your birthday or within a few days on either side of it, then Saturn and Uranus will have powerful lessons expressly for you in this birthday year. A reading of your birthday chart (called a Solar Return) can help you discover what it means for your year and how to use it to the fullest capacity. These are the dates of the exact Saturn-Uranus connections this year: December 24, 2016, May 18, 2017 and November 11, 2017.

The first pass happens on December 24, 2016, while Saturn is direct at 20º Sagittarius and Uranus is retrograde (moving backwards) at 20º Aries. If you have anything in 20º of a Fire sign–like your Sun, Moon or Ascendant, and so on—you will feel this (see diagram for pass 1).

Saturn trine Uranus pass 1

The second pass happens on May 18, 2017, while Saturn is retrograde at 26º Sagittarius and Uranus is direct at 26º Aries. If you have anything in 26º of Sagittarius, Aries, or Leo, you will feel this (see diagram for pass 2).

Saturn trine Uranus pass 2

The third pass is where this transit ends, on November 11, 2017, with Saturn direct at 25º Sagittarius while Uranus is still retrograde in 25º Aries. This will affect you if you have anything in 25º of Sagittarius, Aries or Leo (see diagram for pass 3).

What could this stressful planetary aspect mean?
The following story illustrates one way it could go. . .

There was once a young man named Saturn in Sagittarius who grew up on a wealthy sugar cane farm on a small island nation. His father owned the farm, though the son did not wish to inherit the business from his father when he grew up. When he was old enough to leave home, he went to University, where Saturn in Sagittarius studied law, and hoped to use his degree to help the underdogs of society.

When he was studying at the University Library, buried underneath old tomes full of legal cases, he ran into a fellow student who was known for her extreme politics. Her name was Uranus in Aries, and she was the most spontaneous, incendiary, opinionated, and hell-bent person he had ever met.

“Why are you studying law?” she scoffed at Saturn in Sagittarius.

“I want to use my degree to make the world a better place,” he humbly replied. Uranus in Aries laughed at him. “But how can you make the world a better place when you will one day inherit a plantation that enslaves its workers?” That took Saturn in Sagittarius aback.

Saturn spent weeks and even months mulling over what she had said. Uranus had completely shifted the perspective that he’d spent years of his life working inside of. But she had that affect on people.

Saturn in Sagittarius then decided to put his money where his mouth was. He left school and became a revolutionary, joining forces with Uranus in Aries to fight the colonial oppressors. During this time, Saturn in Sagittarius stopped getting letters from his father. He took this as a withdrawal of his father’s approval. Some days, he could almost hear his father’s disapproving voice in his head, judging his ‘power to the people’ ideology. But he kept on working to change the system.

While Saturn and Uranus were working hard ousting colonial land owners, Saturn realized that removing a corrupt power was not enough to sustain the effects of their revolutionary effort, since another colonialist oppressor could take their place.

“We need to find a better system,” said Saturn in Sagittarius.

“How?” asked Uranus in Aries, as she was running paces around Saturn at lightening speed. She had a hard time using up all her energy on a daily basis.

“I’ll go travel the world to see what other cultures do,” he replied. Uranus in Aries stopped so suddenly that smoke emanated from the floorboards underneath her feet. “But you are TERRIFIED of travel! In fact, you’ve never left this island nation in your WHOLE LIFE.”

“Your right, I’m terrified. But I’m more terrified of what will happen to our revolution if I do not go.” He left the island the next day on a large ocean liner. It was indeed a terrifying experience for Saturn. His heart raced faster and faster as the ship pulled further and further away from his homeland.

Ten months later, Saturn in Sagittarius returned to the island. Uranus in Aries raced up to the ship to greet him.

“So tell me, tell me, tell me… what are we going to do?” she asked him impatiently. Saturn in Sagittarius smiled confidently. “I think I know what we should try,” he said in his understated way.

The next day, Saturn visited his father’s plantation. Now, Saturn in Sagittarius had been facing a lot of his own fears lately, but facing his father was by far the most terrifying thing of all. When he arrived, he saw his father wearing a Hawaiian print shirt and drinking a piña colada. “Hello Son,” said his father. “I’ve been trying to contact you for the past six months or so… where have you been?”

“I’ve been abroad,” replied Saturn, who had a hard time not shaking in fear. His father did look a lot more relaxed than usual though…

“I wanted to let you know that I retired a few months ago! I want to enjoy my twilight years in peace. This plantation is all yours now. You can do whatever you want – I just want to be able to sit on the porch and drink piña coladas. I’ve discovered that I really like them and after so many years of working so hard, I’m really tired.”

Saturn in Sagittarius couldn’t believe his ears. The plantation was his to organize, exactly as he saw fit! He grabbed his phone and shot a quick text message to Uranus, inviting her to visit.

So just as his father asked, Saturn in Sagittarius took over the plantation, and let his elderly father wear as many hideous Hawaiian shirts as he pleased, while he rocked back and forth on the porch imbibing neon mixed drinks. Saturn in Sagittarius then changed the slave-run plantation into a worker’s coop. He had visited a number of these business models while he was abroad, and believed that this would be the solution that would sustain their revolution.

The workers were freed that day and allowed to own their own land. And that day was forever remembered as a day of liberation, when the old transitioned peacefully into the new.

March’s New Moon in Pisces is also an eclipse and oh boy is this a complex one! Shadow Agents in attendance include Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, Chiron, Ceres and Juno. The mood is one of new beginnings that emerge from muddy origins. The healing themes present in the Jupiter/Chiron opposition are also a part of this eclipse. Imagine yourself pulled in two directions, toward both chaos and order. Now imagine that there are many more factors to consider than you can even cope with. The result: total overwhelm. The solution? Slow down, relax, find your center and re-approach when you are ready.

Details About This Eclipse

Date: March 8, 2016
Time of eclipse: 5:54 PM Pacific Time
Type: total (strong in intensity)
Visible in: eastern Asia, southern China, Indonesia, northern Australia, Korea, Japan, eastern tip of Russia and western Alaska.
At: 18º Pisces
Nodal Orientation: the eclipsed Sun conjunct South Node creates a Releasing (not Initiating) nodal orientation
Shadow Agents:  Jupiter in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn in Sagittarius, Juno in Scorpio, Chiron in Pisces, Ceres in Pisces

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
March 3 to 13
June 3 to 13
September 5 to 15
December 5 to 15

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A solar eclipse is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event (unlike a lunar eclipse, which is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event).  This solar eclipse falls at the South Node, making this a releasing eclipse, one which is designed to force you to let go of old things you may be attached to, but don’t really need anymore.  Let go of attachment and this eclipse will go more smoothly.  You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).  The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. You answer it. There stands a veritable crowd of planetary archetypes, pushing and shoving to get in your door.
You: Oh no, you don’t! There are too many of you. Please go away.
You shut the door. Through the door-window you see the Moon cast an arc of sparkly energy in the air. The door dissolves.
Moon: When I’m in Pisces, I specialize in dissolving things. Especially boundaries.
The Moon enters the living room and stands there for a moment silently, with her eyes closed. You notice that a light mist, or possibly a smoke arises from her feet and her hands and fills the room with a foggy glow.
Moon: Ok, everybody, come on in.
You: I didn’t ask for this!
One by one, the planets troop across your threshold: Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, Juno, Chiron and Ceres. They are followed by the Sun, who is quite dark and weak, and who fumbles for a chair. The Moon stands over him, making more sparkles in the air.
Sun: I keep trying to establish my center, but I’m so confused.
Jupiter: You remind me of Superman with kryptonite.
Sun: Yes, it feels like that. I feel so weak and unclear.
Jupiter: Hey everybody, what can we do to help the Sun get his center back?Saturn: You would ask that. You’re at the North Node. You want the Sun to take the high road. But how can he do that, when he’s at the South Node? I’m critical of your method.
Juno: Maybe I can help. The Moon is eclipsing the Sun in the House of Partnership. I am an archetype of Partnership too. Perhaps the answer lies in balance, mirroring and consulting with others.
Saturn: (warningly) It’s possible to do that too much!
Pluto: I have a helpful thought to offer too. Vulnerability and a willingness to share one’s innermost thoughts can bring the Sun all the way through the fog and out the other side. Because, as I like to say, the only way out is through.
Chiron: I agree. Healing is what’s needed, and that takes time and openness. You have to go deeper before you can get through the fog and come out the other side.
Ceres: I think it’s time to check in with bodily wisdom. Sometimes your body knows things you are unaware of. (to the Sun) What is your body telling you now?
The Sun just moans in confusion, thrashing about a little.
Jupiter: All those things are true, but if being near the North Node in Virgo has taught me anything, it’s this: Languishing in a state of confusion and mud can only take you backwards. Onwards, then, into boundaries, common sense and clarity!
Chiron: But don’t leave compassion behind.
Jupiter: True enough. But compassion is no excuse for boundarilessness.
Sun: You’re all speaking in abstracts. I’m more confused than ever.
Moon: Let’s go watch a sad movie together.
Sun: That actually sounds like a good idea. A really sad movie, that will make me cry.
Moon: Then maybe you’ll know what you feel.
Sun: And maybe then I’ll find my center again.
The Moon turns on Netflix and finds some choices. Ceres makes the popcorn, and the Pisces bunch (Sun, Moon, Ceres, Chiron) settle on the sofa to watch. Pluto and Juno join them.
Saturn: Ridiculous!
Jupiter: Idiotic!
Jupiter and Saturn sit in separate corners, reading their phones.
The movie-viewers happily snuggle together and start the movie. Soon tears are streaming down all their faces. After an hour and a half, and a whole box of tissues, they are all hugging.
Moon: That was so sad!
Sun: But also life-affirming—
Ceres: I really felt it in my heart and gut—
Pluto: I let myself be vulnerable to it—
Juno: I was able to feel the main character’s pain—
Chiron: And the pain mixed with my own pain—
Moon: And then when I cried, it all was released together!
Jupiter and Saturn shrug at each other as the still tearful but now happy group gets up and leaves the house in a bunch, punctuated by the occasional hug, back-slap or handing over of another tissue. Saturn and Jupiter follow them.
Jupiter: There’s no accounting for tastes!
Saturn: None at all.

capricornWhere would we be without the Capricorns of the world? Half goat, half sea creature (and all workhorse!), those born between December 21 and January 20 know how to roll up their sleeves and get down to business. But when are you being ambitious, or becoming a complete workaholic? Ruled by Saturn, the planet of commitment and challenge, Capricorns can go from being the glue that holds everything together, to the chain that holds it all back.

Capricorn, when you’re at your best. . .
…you are utterly dependable. You are the friend who withstands the test of time because you don’t flake out. When you RSVP for birthday party, you will actually show up. With a present. That’s because a Capricorn knows how to deliver. You cringe when other people over-promise or make flimsy commitments. You operate with integrity, and know how to keep a secret. You can comfortably step into leadership roles without being flashy or vainglorious. While you do like to be in charge, you also respect the authority of the overall hierarchy in which you take part, so you don’t overstep your bounds. You’re also fairly self-contained, and capable of deferring short term gratification for a long term goal. People turn to you for down-to-earth advice. Too bad they don’t usually take it.

…and at you’re worst…
Sometimes, you can defer gratification TOO much—to the point where you have trouble relaxing and enjoying the present. It’s kind of like waiting months to use a gift card you received on Christmas to only find out, in the checkout line, that it has expired. Does it ever seem that you actually get punished for being so self-abnegating? Maybe there’s a message there for you, Capricorn. At times you can be overly stoic, repressing your emotions to the point where they are hard to read. You can be realistic to the point of pessimism, since you overly anticipate the bad things in life, and have a tendency not to expect positive outcomes. In fact, if you are a Capricorn reading this post, you have probably barely glanced at the above ‘best of’ section to only focus more on this section since you feel more comfortable with criticism. Capricorns can also become obsessed with their careers, and often neglect the softer side of life—family, friends, a home-cooked meal. And your reward for getting on a power-career track is. . . well, more work.

Handling your Capricorn nature
You have always had a serious side to you, and you may feel that as a child you practically raised yourself. Learn to be patient and don’t be hard on yourself—a grave demeanor may be off-putting in a child, but adds to your authority as an adult. Over time, you’ll learn to relax and be more flexible, silly, spontaneous, and emotionally open. Capricorns get better with age, so view yourself as a fine wine or quality scotch. Since you identify with your work, find a career where you can advance and develop. A dead-end job would feel literally like death to a Capricorn (perhaps because you would persist anyway). There is also one more thing you must do, and it this may be the hardest: don’t worry so much! Your mind naturally gravitates towards the worst-case-scenario, and that has become your coping strategy. In a sense, you have earned the right to relax. And if you ever get called a Debbie Downer, remember that the original Debbie, always pouting at social events, was probably a Capricorn. What I’m trying to say is that it wouldn’t hurt if you smiled a little more at parties and worried a little less.

Clueing others in about you….
You should always let others know that you are feeling more than you are probably showing. You are great at taking action to be dependable and reliable, but you are not as good at expressing feelings. You don’t have to throw a tantrum or speak in a shrill voice to be heard, but it helps if you use sentences that begin with “I feel …” to clue others in. You also don’t appreciate it when your earning power is taken for granted by others. Gold diggers may want to cozy up to you, but don’t lead them on with your resources and be clear that you are not a free lunch ticket. Also let others know that when you are being cynical, you are not just bursting their bubbles for the fun of it. Tell others that giving realistic feedback is your way of trying to help, and they should view it as a signal that you are taking them seriously. Try to find ways of cushioning your criticism, by offering a few positive (gulp) statements first before you slam down the hard hammer of reality.

This year, Saturn enters into a square with Neptune, which lasts almost a year and spans 7 to 12 degrees of Mutable signs, affecting those with Sun in Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo everywhere. Neptune is the planet of dreams and visions while Saturn rules constriction and fear. What could this stressful planetary aspect mean? The script at the bottom of this page describes one way it could go, but first, how will you know if this even matters to you?

Does this transit affect you?

If you were born within the following dates, you will feel this transit strongly:
Feb 25 through March 3 of any year
May 28 through June 3 of any year
August 30 through September 5 of any year
November 29 through December 5 of any year

This post is for you if. . .

  • You’re trying to get clear on your career vision and put it into practice
  • You have difficulty manifesting your dreams because your mind fearfully asks “but how do I get there?” and “but what if things go terribly wrong…?”
  • You’re ready to live the dream instead of escaping the responsibility

How the Saturn square Neptune works
(this part is technical, but brief)

If your birthday falls on November 26, 2015, June 17, 2016 or September 10, 2016, then Neptune and Saturn will have powerful lessons expressly for you in this birthday year.

Saturn will square Neptune 3 times this year. The first pass happens on November 26, 2015, while Saturn is direct at 7º Sagittarius and Neptune (also direct) is at 7º Pisces. If you have anything in 7º of a Mutable sign–like your Sun, Moon or Ascendant, etc –you will feel this (see diagram for pass 1).

Saturn square Neptune, pass 1

The second pass happens on June 17, 2016, while Saturn and Neptune are both retrograde and at 12º of their signs. If you have anything in 12º of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or VIrgo, you will feel this (see diagram for pass 2).

Saturn square Neptune, pass 2

The third pass is where this transit ends, on September 10, 2016 with Saturn direct at 10º Sagittarius while Neptune is still retrograde in 10º Pisces. This will affect you if you have anything in 10º of a Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo (see diagram for pass 3).

Saturn square Neptune, pass 3

What could this stressful planetary aspect mean?
The following story illustrates one way it could go. . .

Neptune is floating along on a cloud of dreams, idly making multicolored waterfalls and pretty sparkle patterns in the air. She has just made a very satisfying sky painting when the cloud she’s wafting on encounters Saturn. Saturn is packing 10 suitcases and weeping.
Neptune: What are you doing, Saturn? Why are you crying?
Saturn: (wiping a tear) I have to go on a trip and I’m trying to get organized. I’m SO overwhelmed.
Neptune: I’m really good at envisioning things. Tell me about your trip and I’ll make the mental pictures that can help you get organized.
Saturn: Well I have to visit 3 countries, all of which have different weather and speak 3 different languages. In Sagittarius I have to practice being a world traveler, but to tell you the truth, I’m afraid of heights, big places and going outside.
Neptune: But just imagine the fabulous views you’ll see in an airplane!
Neptune grabs some cloud-stuff in her hands, sprinkles a sparkly dust into it from her sleeve and a vision appears—of distant landscapes viewed from high above.
Saturn: You’re going to make me ill!
Neptune: And imagine all the fun you’ll have meeting people who are new and different!
She conjures an image of a variety of people, dressed in exotic costumes and of many ethnicities.
Saturn: You mean all those strange people with strange customs and places where I’ll be out of my element?
Neptune: And imagine all the amazing sights you’ll see in far-off lands!
She shows him the Sphinx, the Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China and the Grand Canyon. Upon seeing the Grand Canyon, he turns a little green.
Saturn: I really just want to crawl into a hole. A small one. Where I don’t have to go outside at all.
Neptune: That can be arranged.
Suddenly, with a gesture, they are in a dark cave.
Saturn: Wait a minute—I didn’t mean—
Neptune: Remember who you are talking to? I am the goddess of visions, fantasies, imaginings. I make dreams come true.
Saturn: You mean nightmares!
Neptune: Nightmares are dreams too.
Saturn: But this is REALLY dark!  What if there’s a bear?
Neptune: A bear, you say?
They hear a growl emanating from a tunnel leading off the cave. There’s a shadow on the wall.
Saturn: What if the walls cave in?
Neptune: Ah, what if they did?
The walls do begin to move. The space is becoming noticeably smaller.
Saturn: I can’t breathe!
Neptune: Why do you need to breathe? You’re an Earth planet.
Saturn: But I’m in Sagittarius—a Fire sign! I need Air!
Neptune: Be careful what you wish for!
Suddenly they are atop a mountain, wind whistling all around. They sit on a craggy peak, with barely enough room for the two of them.
Neptune: Is this enough Air for you? Enough Earth?
Saturn: Aaaaahhhh!
He grabs onto her cloak, trying not to fall down the icy mountainside.
Neptune: Haven’t you figured this out yet?
Saturn: What is there to figure out?
Neptune: Don’t get caught up in fear. Fear turns dreams into nightmares.
Saturn: I think you should tell that to those frightened little humans down on Earth.
Neptune: I just did.

Do you love a Capricorn?Cap heart 4
Are you a Capricorn in love?

Human relationships are complex, layered things.  Every sign responds to love differently and has needs that are particular to it.  Also no individual can be categorized by their Sun sign alone.  Every person is a mixed bag of astrological traits, but an emphasis on Capricorn in your chart (or its ruling planet, Saturn) will result in distinctly Cap experience.  In particular, if you have the Sun or Moon in Cap OR if you have Venus or Juno in Cap, this article is just for you.

Are you a Capricorn in love?
Great.  You got over the hump.  But the next question is, does the object of your affections know you care?  The reason I ask is, being vulnerable is almost as hard for Capricorn as it is for Scorpio, but for different reasons.  Scorps go around feeling hyper-vulnerable all the time, and compensate by being grouchy with the ones they love the most.  Capricorns just plain get calcified from the sheer emotional pain of life.  You see the difference?  After that first flush of adolescent love—and the attendant rejection—it becomes harder and harder for Capricorn to open up again.  By the time true adulthood is attained, there are usually some walls around the heart for a Capricorn to dismantle.  But doing so is worth it, Capricorn, because the world wants to love you.  Yes, let me say it again:  the world wants to love you.

How to manage your relationships as a Capricorn. . .
Who has broken into your inner sanctum?  Who has braved your dragons and your briar hedge, O My Prickly One?  Give that person a medal because they have seen the real you and persisted.  Now that they’re in, don’t make them work so hard next time.  If you thought opening yourself up to love was hard, wait till you try practicing that emotional openness over time.  Again I say:  It’s completely worth it.  The feeling of being loved and lovable is so blissful, it’s fills in all the little corners of your soul and reminds you  why you work so hard, why you do all the wonderful things you do.  Without that feeling, life doesn’t mean as much and ambition seems empty.  And with that feeling, life has vibrancy, excitement and you are buoyed up with purpose because supporting those you love is what you were made for.  No kidding.

Do you love a Capricorn?
Then prepare to spend your time softening up what is essentially a crotchety, curmudgeonly creature.  Not that your Cap wants to be that way—not by a long shot.  It’s just that suspicion, criticism and judgment are Cap’s first reaction to love.  Don’t take this personally, because it’s not about you.  Also don’t be surprised if it creeps in slowly over time because a habit like this is hard to break.  Here’s the key thing that will surprise you and help you manage your Capricorn with finesse:  treat him as if he’s much more sensitive than he looks or acts.  In addition to that, your Capricorn feels most loved when his burden is eased.  Promises mean nothing; actions mean everything.  Jumping cheerfully into the trenches with your Capricorn can bring a tremendous relaxation of spirit.

If you have Venus or Juno in Cap in your chart, the chances of you dating Capricorns is very high.  How to handle the Capricorn you love. . .

  • Does my description of Capricorn above sound like Scrooge?  Well, wouldn’t you be grumpy if your birthday was so near Christmas that you never got the attention that others seem to get for their birthdays in other seasons?  Pay special attention to his birthday but stop short of embarrassing him.
  • When your Capricorn criticizes others who are not present, take a step back and ask yourself if she’s pushing human warmth away.  Remind her that no one is perfect and help her learn how to manage her sensitivity to other people’s flaws.
  • Assume your Capricorn is driving himself way too hard.  Encourage relaxation and watch for that look of longing.  Your Cap has forgotten how to relax.  Show him gently and without shock to his hard-working system.
  • Work as hard as she does.  Or free her up to be the family provider—but only if she really wants that and not if she’s doing it because she secretly thinks you’re incompetent.
  • When the tough façade cracks, be gentle.  Be very gentle.  Go on being gentle, loyal, steadfast and kind with him for years and years at a time.  No emotional wall can bear that.
  • Praise and respect what she does, but love who she is.  Unconditional love combined with conditional praise is great learning for the little Capricorns and great medicine for the adults.

Imagine a cozy domestic scene, in a kitchen filled with good smells.  Jupiter (a large matronly lady with an infectious warmth) is whipping up something nice at the stove while Saturn (a stern-looking but determined fellow with a beaky nose) gathers tools for a construction project.  They are both humming at their work.  

Jupiter:  Ready for some muffins?
Saturn:  Almost.  I’ve got to fix the plumbing first.  (rifles through his tool box)
Jupiter:  We’re going to have the best housewarming ever.
Saturn:  The house will certainly be warm if I have anything to say about it.  And not at all wet.  (he gets down on the floor, opens the cabinet under the sink and applies a wrench to the plumbing)
Jupiter:  You’ve inspired me—I’ve created a new recipe.  Here, try it—(she puts a morsel in his mouth).
Saturn:  (mumbles around the mouthful)  Wow, that’s really good!  I have no criticism to offer.
Jupiter:  You?  No criticism?  That’s really saying something.  Thank you.
Saturn:  You are open to my criticism, which makes me feel relaxed.
Jupiter:  Well that’s because you get it.  You get it about the importance of a happy, relaxed home life.  When you provide for our home, I feel supported.  It makes me want to do even more nice things to make our place more comfortable.
Saturn:  Which in turn makes me want to do the same.
Jupiter:  Right now I’m wondering why we ever argue.
Saturn:  We represent very different principles.  I’m about structure, accountability, diligence and achievement.
Jupiter:  And I’m about fun, growth, and being open to possibilities.
Saturn:  You do sometimes make promises you can’t keep, but I’m not really noticing that right now.  Right now all I want to do is fulfill on your promises, because I’m enjoying the way you make me grow.
Jupiter:  That’s nice to hear.  And you sometimes can be a real stickler, making demands about the bottom line, and pressing me for deadlines.  I’m not very good with deadlines, but when you provide the structure and integrity, I can meet them.  Together we produce less than I’m capable of promising—
Saturn:  —but together we produce something real, and it’s better than what I’d promise on my own.
Jupiter:  Exactly!
Saturn:  And thus real, concrete growth is possible.
Jupiter:  Instead of just hot air—  (wink)  
Saturn:  —and pessimism!  (wink)
Jupiter:  I think it’s because right now you’ve decided to trust me.
Saturn:  More accurately, I’ve decided to trust my own instinct about you.  And my instinct tells me to relax, because everything you do tells me you respect my needs for restraint and competency.
Jupiter:  And everything you do tells me you value the enthusiasm I bring and the growth I long for.  Thank you for that.  Big hug!
Saturn:  You know I’m not really into the huggy thing.  But I’ll submit to it anyway.
Jupiter:  Mr. Crankipants!
Saturn:  Madam Thing!
They share a brief squeeze, during which Saturn tears up and Jupiter pretends not to see it.  Then each goes back to what they were doing, feeling supported and appreciated and with a good will.  

Is this conversation happening in your home?  Perhaps it should be!

This friendly alignment between Jupiter and Saturn can allow us all to pause and appreciate the structures we often take for granted and the good things they bring into our lives.  Speaking that appreciation aloud to the strong-but-bristly providers in our lives (you know—the ones who build the structures that make life run) can relax their bristles and also open up everyone in the situation to experiencing more joy, happiness and emotional connection.  Spread the love!
