Happy Birthdays, Capricorns!

Classy Capricorn Kate Middleton in perfect Christmas hat!

Holiday Kate! Classy Catherine Elizabeth “Kate” Middleton, born Jan 9, 1982, is now formally known as Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She is Capricorn with sugar and spice! Her Moon is in Cancer opposite her Capricorn Sun, they in TSquare with Saturn are cautious, conservative, law abiding. AND, she has Mercury, and Venus retrograde in Aquarius stirring mischief! They trine Mars in Libra, feisty; they square Jupiter, she thinks for herself, outspoken at times; they sextile the planet of Aquarius, Uranus, not your average citizen and gets away with it! See that happy smile?! Generally she would be a good match for a redhead, but they do have their challenges. See Prince William’s chart.

Kate has had a major impact upon British and American fashion which has been termed the “Kate Middleton effect.” What she wears, people try to buy! However true to natural Capricorn instincts to thrift, some now suggest that the so-called Kate Effect is merely exaggerated because of her penchant ‘for wearing styles that have long sold out’ and that ‘habit of choosing last season’s designs meant that those wishing to emulate her look had already missed out.’ But it does work in other ways! Remarkably, when her wedding dress was put on display at Buckingham Palace in the summer of 2011, the display helped to raise approximately £8million for the Royal Collection, as well as the charitable fund of the Duke and Duchess, and was reported to have drawn a record number of visitors. In 2012 Kate was selected as one of the “Most Influential People in the World” by Time magazine.

Her good works include her connections with Patron of Action on Addiction, Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Royal Patron of The Art Room and Patron of the National Portrait Gallery, London. The Action program operates national treatment centers throughout the U.K. and brings support to those addicted as well as their families. The Art Room works with often troubled children and builds their self-esteem, confidence and independence through art. She’s a sweetheart. A letter she wrote to Fabian Bate, a young boy who passed away from cancer at age 12, now comforts his family as they grieve the loss of their son.

Do what you can in your own good way. Be a better dresser. Smile your smile however it might be. Give money if you’ve got it, your time if you don’t. Put some love in an envelope and send it. Hold someone in your good thoughts. Let people know out loud what you love about them, that you love them. Blessed be.

Capricorn’s Sacred Practice! 

Capricorn, Ancient Sacred Practice, December Full Moon Ritual, Meditation Circle

Whether you are in solitary practice, are part of a Circle, go to Church, have a spiritual teacher, or just Be, is perfect. At different times of your life you may embrace one or all of these choices and prosper spiritually. Your Soul knows what to do when.

Sacred Law, the 7th Ray  Spiritual practice may be foremost. Respecting elders and earth wisdom comes into play. Time is a law to be used with grace and fervor! There is only so much, yet there is no need to rush. Acceptance is an abiding law; what will be will be. Humility, love of all beings exactly where they are at is a challenge, and so too, knowing when we don’t have to play with them either. Knowing our limits and that we can’t be there for everyone all of the time, or maybe not at all, is healthy practice. Divine Order at times presents itself with clarity right between our eyes! This, then that. That’s all there is. Period.

29 Year Saturn Returns The first 29 years are self discovery. How does this human body thingy work?! Honoring the voice in you that knows what you love and do best. Being yourself, not as others would wish you to be. Let your skin feel the wind. Consternation versus success. Some vexing, but steady gains too.

The second 29 is doing what you do best if you found your heart’s way in that first 29. Earn your keep. Usually around 50, many find themselves to have become ‘elders’ of the tribe. Mentoring, giving back, making things different. Sometimes failures of the previous generations are corrected. A more generous Spirit is released.

The third 29 is teaching the teachers how to teach. Comforting them through their failures, encouraging them to learn through it, be inspiring. They see your calm strength or how you handle it when you or life goes nutty. Life has natural ups and downs. Sometimes when we are down is when our most profound power is upon us. We learn to laugh more. Life is serious and funny as Hell! Your knee pads are getting a good workout ~ praying for insight, giving thanks for blessings, and resting when you need to!

Commitment is a life theme. It might be to the kid down the block, giving that single smile when you see them each day. To your children. To your mate. Don’t put yourself in jeopardy situations where you are triggered to misbehave. Part of your practice is self discipline. Take it to work with you. Focus and stay sharp. Pay attention to those around you. Humans are part of your life work too. Decide to take good care of yourself. Stay on an even keel, and do frolic and blow off steam occasionally!

You Capricorns are treasured! You decide and you do it. Without looking like it, you get more done than ten other people combined. No wasted motion, only what’s needed. Your foundations are solid. You are so loved. Not only are you loving, but you show it in so many ways that make our lives more sanely livable. What a beautiful Sacred Practice. Thank you.

Uranus Square Pluto, Royal Wedding Chart, William & Kate!

Uranus square Pluto is starting, now 5 degrees in orb.  That will keep things shaking!  Oops, maybe I shouldn’t say that.  Uranus in Aries is the rebellious young upstart compared to the wizened Pluto burrowing the depths of corporate Capricorn.  Yet Pluto is associated with journalism, follows the money, a trouble maker of a different ilk.  Power will be questioned.  Put them together and things that were thought to be impermeable may be disturbed at the deepest foundations, shaken to thunder!  Long standing old schools will have cracks in their armor, new conduits able to be begun.  Some will fall of their own finished weight, to be replaced for better benefit, or simply let go – no need to go further, job done.  Strange and wonderful new alliances will be tried and some will work and break through to whole new types of community models, building codes, laws.  Businesses once thought to be ridiculous will begin to prove themselves as the needs of the times and hidden technology comes to light to make them feasible.  Those who ride the snorty horse will fly!  Let those pawing hooves make fiery sparks! 

Another take on Uranus into Aries, square Pluto.  This aspect is unique because it happens 7 times!  It will be exact for the first time June 23, 2012, finishing Mar 17, 2015, in effect for five years!

I wrote the above with no thought of the Royal Wedding, William & Kate, in mind.  Yet this is the most powerful aspect of the out most planets, longest in duration, in their wedding chart.  It will always be in their wedding chart, but the actual aspect in the sky will culminate Mar 17, 2015.  At that point it shall have made 7 exact connections at varying but close degrees.  If their marriage is surviving at that time, they will probably make it.  So much is being said about how their marriage is giving hope in hard economic times and following the years of sadnesses around Charles, Diana, and Camilla.  Perhaps this symbolizes breaking through old patterns of the monarchy, British financial reform.

Some are using the 11 AM start of the wedding for the wedding chart;  I am using the 11:20 AM pronouncement moment – the intent of the event before your peers.  If you really want to get technical about it, use the chart when the last person signed the papers for official records after the ceremony.  The 11 AM chart has Venus of love and beauty at the top of the chart, and the wedding did start on time, and was a lovely ceremony that went off without a hitch though William did have a hard time getting the ring on Kate’s finger (Saturn opposite Mercury). 

Royal Wedding Chart, Prince William & Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

The most unique feature of the wedding chart is that simplistically, the Moon is Void of Course in Pisces square the Galactic Center.  Void of Course, VOC, is the time period from when the Moon makes its last connection with any planet and the time it enters a new sign.  There are extreme opposing points of view of what this period brings.  The traditional view is nothing will come of it, it won’t come out as expected, somewhat unpredictable.  This is great if your question is ‘Will I go to jail?’!  Rarely would a VOC Moon be chosen for a wedding chart.  Since the Moon has directly to do with fertility and a royal heir is usually wanted, this would be doubly so in this case.  It is said, ‘…the moon relating to the mother, will give a mother who was ‘not there’ so to speak. she may not have been there physically, emotionally, or she may have been even neglectful.’  Will’s mother Diana, ‘not there,’ is an important facet of their lives together.  The other view is there is nothing to stop it, nothing to stand in its way.  Hilary Clinton’s Moon (women) is VOC in Pisces in her 10th house of career and authority!  First Lady.   There are exceptions to the VOC rule, and this chart has them.  The Moon is said to ‘perform’ in Pisces – Pisces lives to osmose!  When it changes signs it will conjunct Uranus at 2 degrees Aries – free to act! Mercury and Jupiter are in an angular house, the 10th – a place determined to accomplish.  Jupiter with Mars is lucky to act!  How to resist?!!!

Still, as compelling as those aspects are, organically, the Moon, back at 26 degrees, four to go to change Signs, I would give the VOC read precedence, attending to reading the Moon for herself.  Pisces does move, but it can be ever so cleverly quietly, miniscule motion, practically invisible.  The VOC Moon is like a pause.  Preceding matters have been concluded, we’re in the done-deal zone, with perhaps a sense that it was all fated.  This is like a thoughtful, perhaps resting, reset period, in internal adjustment readying for the next Sign, the Gateway.  It is a step in a process.  A chart with lots of upcoming Lunar aspects in a Sign has many unfolding options, a rich future if favorable, is busy.  In traditional successful wedding charts, the Moon is chosen to be in trine or sextile with the Sun, Mother and Father, the Lights in harmony for fertility, full of life!  This chart has no upcoming Lunar aspects, no classic Sun/Moon, male/female connection. 

Pisces, the Moon’s Sign, is also an ending symbol, finishing symbol of maturity, being the last Sign of the Zodiac.  It too has to do with rest, contemplation, the unknown, unknowable, visioning.  To the negative side, it can be addictions, the victim/martyr, hidden agendas, fantasy versus reality.  For Kate going from commoner to Queen, it can be the dream come true, fairy tales.  Moon nurtures unconditionally; Pisces is the ultimate compassion.  It gives a dramatic counterpoint to the 5 planet Aries stellium (cluster – see below)!  Aries is noted for action, can be courageous first responders, but is not noted for ongoing care with deep sensitivity.  The Moon rules mothers, children, women in general, and Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt, in particular.  And Mother Diana was missing.  Pisces also rules being in Spirit form.  In the Abbey, closest to where William and Kate stood to take their vows, there were five chairs. Four of them were taken, by the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla … and then there was an empty chair. Was that chair for Diana?

Some are saying this ‘lost’ Moon in ‘lost Pisces’ is symbolically a way of putting away Diana’s influence. Maybe so, but she was William’s mother. That concept doesn’t work for me. This Void of Course position is akin to an ‘escape’ planet, a planet that has no connections formed to it or by it. It is in a separate state, unhindered, but ineffective, sometimes a loose cannon since there is nothing to censor its choices, no outlets to siphon off energy. It’s behavior often seems inappropriate.  It’s one thing to ‘put away’ a matter, it’s quite another to not get any benefit from the Moon other than the Sign it is in. 

Being on the brink of the Mayan calendar ending 2012, that event quite close to being at the Galactic Center, the Moon being a degree of square the Galactic Center seems significant!  Perhaps they will never take their kingdom or their kingdom, the monarchy system, will be ended, or it will be fraught with difficulties throughout their time.

Their Sun is in Taurus, a sign of fertility and stability, loyalty forever!  And there were earthy Pagan elements to the wedding.  Trees brought into the Abbey.  It was near Beltane – May Day celebration of fertility.  They had a hand wrapping – called handfasting in Pagan circles.  The archbishop who married them is a Druid!  And William’s full name is William Arthur Philip Louis, Arthur being the King of old mythical legends.

Leo Rising, the Ascendant, is a romantic Sign of Kings & Queens, great powers!  As Taurus, it is another fixed sign, cherishes its mate and takes a long time before it gives up.  It is generous, loves to teach, is thought to be selfish at times, is great fun to be around, has boundless energy!  Trine Venus, is kind, loves glorious beauty and color.  Their wedding was bright – William’s red uniform (Aries’ color).   

FIVE planets in Aries!  Aries is not famous for finishing projects nor fertility, but is a splendid champion, passionate leader!  Both Leo and Aries are athletic.  The group of five starts with Uranus of community, international connections, freedom.  Then there is Venus, love of independence, heroes, celebrities, art by fire.  The MidHeaven in Aries decides to try new things in government, laws, status.  Mercury is next, with inspiring things to say, fresh insights.  Mars and Jupiter conclude together.  Mars here is in its own Sign, racy super action, with Jupiter is legendary!  Jupiter is what we think is righteous, good luck, horses and big dogs, expansion, future plans, travel, publishing, education!  Expect these two to broaden and brighten Britain!  Aries is less famous for stopping to make agreements, more famous for spontaneous action, sometimes fiery fights, but quickly over!  One way or another, this couple will make a lot of news! 

With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.  Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times. 

Saturn at 12 Libra is at a midpoint opposition with Venus 10 Aries, MidHeaven 12 Aries and Mercury 14 Aries!  Sometimes duty will dominate, love and simply doing what you want to do will seem far, far away.  There may not always be time to talk, so many responsibilities.  And at times, it will just be good to be apart, a little room to navigate freely. 

The Sun sextile Chiron of Marriage, and semi sextile Venus of love and affection, will soften and protect them, give a sweetness.   

Sun trine Pluto is the number one US corporate wealth aspect!  If it works well in Britain too, their fortunes together are likely assured!  Saturn though square Pluto, and is going back, retrograde, to 10 degrees, never makes the exact square to Pluto at 7 degrees.  There will be financial scares, close calls, perhaps, but will never quite happen.  The issues of their country’s economics will always be of concern.

Spiritually speaking, whether by chance or chosen, a wedding chart is always perfect.  The couple has the ultimate final choice of date, time and place.  Whatever is the Soul’s agreement, agenda, the chart will show the way and be lived in all its intricacy. 

If you didn’t see it and would like to, here is a link to watch the ceremony.  At the very beginning, note the lovely greenery in the abbey!
