We finish 2008 on a bang!
Monday 22nd December at around 7:30pm, we have Sun conjunct Pluto at zero degrees Capricorn. Pluto in Cap is not going to be very considerate of family issues (opposes Cancer, family). Whatever starts to blow up on Monday night will see you through Christmas and develop slowlyinto something bigger than Ben Hur over the next oh, decade or so. That sounds like fun doesn’t i!
The new year opens with Saturn retrograde. A slow revealing look at poor structures and ill fated decisions. 4am New Years Day is not the time to be driving home drunk. Trust me.
But Jupiters entry in Aquarius in early hours of January 6th 2009 will bring a philosophical acceptance to the changes Pluto is wroughting. Cultivate a distance and openness that Jupiter/Aquarius requires and you won’t get sucked into the deep Pluto/Capricorn moods.
Finally, The eclipse on January 26th, 2008 at 6 degrees Aquarius conjunct Jupiter will open our minds. Is there a situation that you just can’t accept? A new sister in law who is just too strange? A job that doesn’t make sense? The end of January brings an acceptance to situations outside of the social norm. Backtracking during Mercury retrograde is the order of the day anyway. (January 12 at 7 degrees Aquarius until Feb 1st at 21 degrees Capricorn).
In case you haven’t noticed, Pluto starts the story, with Saturn. But Aquarian Jupiter brings relief or at least an acceptance of non-conformist solutions.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from Sydney Australia.
EDIT: Elsa Elsa has a great post on Jupiter in Aquarius.
