Today the Moon in Capricorn moves through conjunctions to Saturn and Pluto then a sextile to Mars in Scorpio. Saturn is steadily approaching its conjunction to Pluto, which will be exact on January 12. Moving through the narrowing space between these planets, the Moon brings our attention back to this story—which began when Saturn entered Capricorn in December 2017—and how it is unfolding. My sense of this transit is that it describes the immense pressure being put on existing systems and power structures, the ways that we’ve ordered and organized our lives in the past, the limitations that have been set that both support and constrain us, and the ways that power operates on and through us. If we think of Pluto as how power operates, Saturn is a planet that refuses and rejects, a planet that says NO. As the Moon moves between Saturn and Pluto, we can begin to ask: how do we embody our refusal of existing systems and power structures? What does it feel like to embody that refusal? As the Moon makes a sextile to Mars, we may feel emboldened in our struggles, ready to fight to make another way possible. Also today, the Sun makes a conjunction to Jupiter in Capricorn, an aspect called “cazimi” or “in the heart of the Sun.” This is a process of intense clarification and purification for Jupiter, which recently began its journey through Capricorn. This could be a time for clarifying where best to direct your resources in order to support sustainable growth. What is it that you are trying to growth in the year ahead, and what resources do you need to make available in order to support that growth?
