The Sun’s visit to holistic, reflective Pisces starts on the 18th and can be thought of as a celestial retreat. It offers the chance to pause, relax and release before the Sun heads into combustible Aries.
For the first time since January 1778, the Aquarius Sun will be accompanied by Pluto. The two will enter the visionary, innovating air sign on January 20th, following their final conjunction in Capricorn. Pluto’s last full Aquarius transit took place between April 1777 and December 1798. Historic events of the period include America’s victory in […]
This Sun through Capricorn cycle seems custom-made for those who like to spend the final part of the year reflecting on the past and the earliest days of the new one putting aspirations into action. Part of the planetary activity will take place in mutable signs, aiding release, and another in cardinal signs, supporting those first steps into new endeavors. Throw in a nostalgic full Moon in Cancer on the 26th, Mercury’s dance between mutable Sagittarius and cardinal Capricorn, Jupiter’s station and an important new Capricorn Moon on January 11th, and the theme of clearing out the old to make way for the new solidifies. It all gets underway on December 21st when the Sun enters industrious Capricorn under a productive, waxing Taurus Moon.
2023’s Sagittarius Sun cycle will see Mercury, Venus and Mars change signs, Neptune station direct and the start of Mercury’s next retrograde. When the Sun and Mars move into optimistic Sagittarius on the 22nd and 24th, they will each quickly be squared by Saturn in Pisces on the 23rd and 25th. Ruled by exuberant, expansive […]
In 2023, the Sun will be accompanied by Scorpio’s ancient ruler, Mars, as it transits the fixed water sign. Mercury will also be moving through these immensely passionate waters from October 22nd until November 9th. Additionally, the lunar eclipse of October 28th will be the final one in the present series of eclipses on the Scorpio Taurus axis. Compared to the November 8, 2022 lunar eclipse in Taurus, with its t-square to Saturn in Aquarius, this one should be somewhat milder. That said, Scorpio represents death and transformation. Since April, the eclipses have been shifting into the initiating cardinal signs of Aries and Libra, signaling that one paradigm is dying as another is born. Another difference in this year’s Scorpio cycle is that Saturn has moved from fixed Aquarius into mutable Pisces.
