Capricorn Adventurer Bruce Kirkby Backpacks with Goats, Capricorn's animal!

Bruce Kirkby is a dedicated family man, and backpacks with GOATS – the Capricorn animal! ‘Amid the clatter of hooves and tiny bleats, we were under way.’ In the 100 mile pack trip with his 4 year old son Bodi, one of the goats he selected for the trip, the snowy white one, was named Capricorn! Read the story!

Jupiter is an athletic adventurer, loves the challenge, elevation and the great big views! Trekking the mountains, exquisite solitude, are naturals for Jupiter in Capricorn. Capricorn, like the Capricorn animal, mountain goats, has sure footed strength in these rocky areas and isn’t afraid to ice climb! Being in the vastitudes provides a great relief from dedicated Capricorn’s daily work. Of course, you could run the ski resort and do both on the same day every day! Hallelujah!

At this Dec 2 2019 mark, instead of 3 outer planets in their own signs, we will have 3 in Capricorn until March 21, 2020 when Saturn leaves and enters Aquarius! Three plus months. Pluto has been shifting power right and left, especially recently with its conjunct the Ecliptic. That was Oct 30, 2018, but is a long term aspect still in effect. Saturn is powerfully in his own sign, building from the rubble up, fateful challenges, one test after another, sustainability one of the goals. Jupiter keeps the faith going for these hard workers. When they get bogged down, Jupiter comes in with the perspective of the moment to keep them aware of how much they have already accomplished, helps them stand back to reassess processes, and gives them some new ideas to help things go more smoothly. He keeps them mindful of the long term goal.

This is not an ordinary time. Nov 8 Jupiter into Sagittarius followed the 248 year Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, 2018. That event links to the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury that on average happens 13 time a century, and its sister event the Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Sagittarius is a traveler of time and space genetically arrayed to link with the GC in a nonjudgmental receptivity, always curious. Once these two transmissions are made, Mercury with Solar Light, Jupiter with Galactic Light, Capricorn aims to build what they saw! The divine architect intends to bring them into existence in the most elegant and sophisticated ways possible. He will use the most up-to-date inventions and materials, and you can bet they will be sustainable! 

Everyday Jupiter in Capricorn can be seriously funny! He can exaggerate so ridiculously and outrageously that at times you don’t know whether to believe him or not! And Capricorns can make you laugh until you cry. They know what there is to cry about and make terrific comedians! They nail it! I can just see Jupiter mimicking Cappie’s serious face!

I can also see tall buildings in tall places! Jupiter is frequently tall, that is how they can see where we are going and make those ‘lucky’ choices! Capricorn has no fear of heights or high altitude climates! He will build stout lodges that no snow or wind will ever get through! Jupiter loves the views, his heart swells, loves coming back to a roaring evening fire. Skiing and climbing are great! Sag is fearless, and Capricorn judges to the millimeter and they make those turns on the slopes at top speed. No wasted motion, and perfect timing – first to the finish! Jupiter has made their bets and, yay, they have won again!

Jupiter is innately a traveler, so they will build then go to the next site. By summer they are teaching sustainable architecture and construction in Buenos Aires or are in Africa restoring the desert, surfing Australia’s Gold Coast. Jupiter blogs as they go, makes maps, shares hard won tips, time and back saving shortcuts, where the best surf spots are. You either travel with them or are the partner who waits or you never see them again. But what a fascinating combination of amazing storytelling and heroic efforts that make a profound difference! It’s delicious when you do see them and share time!

Sports, in reasonable doses, are a great outlet both for health and keeping our mind fresh. In this case, tired hips, thighs and knees or injuries, might be a problem, likely from a lot of use or a lot of speedy action! Not likely to be overweight unless those hips, thighs and knees are unhappy. Rest will probably be prescribed, and that drives Jupiter nuts! He longs for the outdoors. Cap goes crazy restless grumpy when he can’t work. Sigh. At least, as you age, super memories will be plentiful. Jupiter goes for optimum health and Capricorn research and science can bring the breakthroughs needed for age related matters. Bring it on!

Jupiter can be lazy, easily distracted, runs away, is loud and rudely opinionated or is a fun loving exploratory truth-seeker, friends with all, an amazing promotor, faithful, determined to spread hope, takes the good word the maximum distance possible! Capricorn can be fearful, depressed, sickly when young, or focused like a laser, dedicated, determined to keep their word, be on time, finish a high quality job for top recognition! With the best of both Jupiter and Cap, they could be the wise master or the Oracle with the Truth. Anyway, put them together and you have Jupiter in Capricorn!

Work and play are their MO. Jupiter plays with total abandon, makes living, learning and working a game. Kids love it! Adults find themselves laughing joyously, big, like they haven’t in years! Capricorn learns how to take time out productively, LOL! Business travel with an after trip and an open ticket home works for them. And Jupiter is happy because the trip was a seminar and they learned a lot, shared dinner stories, made new friends and biz connections from all over. Caps work hard, and sometimes the Jupiter hum or singing a song they learned recently makes the time go by faster. Plus Jupiter has a nifty sense of perspective and makes just the right suggestions for adjustments as they work. They get the best results for where they are and what’s available at the current time.

Jupiter gets along with most anyone but others don’t always return the favor. Jupiter is a fire planet of fire sign Sagittarius. Other fire signs and the air signs usually like to play too. Hard worker earth signs may be skeptical of this fun lover. It may take some time to get to know you. Water signs can rain on the parade or make the dance more fun between the raindrops!

Capricorn loves the other earth signs and could be a wee bit cautious of water signs that could wash his building away… He may want to contain them and they might not enjoy that. Water is used to natural flow. Fire and air signs are hard to take seriously, depends on the person. They don’t always seem commitment oriented the same way Capricorn is. But when things just get too doggoned stuffy, they help lighten things up, come up with new ideas and we’re off to the races again!

Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn on Dec 2 is immediately challenging to Chiron in Aries Dec 8. See more about their surprising connection! Concurrently Jupiter gleefully trines Uranus in Taurus Dec 15! If your chart is well connected, it brings great good luck! Though this connection is in earth signs, things are happening fast! Be ready to keep up! Don’t miss this read!

Jupiter shall previously have been in its own sign Sagittarius. Think on what you would like most, that would be best and blessed to do for yourself and the planet. Would you like to learn it or teach it or both?! It’s time may come to be put to work while Jupiter is in Capricorn! They want to make it so!

Capricorn - Switzerland's Lara Gut Skiing

Saturn’s sign change is profoundly preceded by Sunday December 17’s New Moon, new beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific, at 26 Sagittarius 31, the Galactic Center! See more!
Three days after Saturn enters Capricorn, Dec 22 Mercury’s Sagittarius RETROGRADE ends! Mercury turns forward, Direct 5:51 PM Pacific. So Saturn’s entry into Capricorn this time is meant to reconsider many options, stay flexible. See more!

Fittingly, it’s just two days before Winter Solstice, Sun into Capricorn! Saturn readies itself for its own special time of year by jumping into its own sign, a double Capricorn effect! Goats love that jumping thing and they often have very steady footing, daring to go where no one even wants to go, even ice climbing! While some bears are napping in the dark, others are out on the slopes racing at top speed, invigorated, cold air rushing by, down to the bottom, then ready to go back to the top and do it again! Ice skating is an inspiring skill! If you think Capricorn is a stodgy old sign, think again! Winter has its own kind of excitement!

After the frolic is over, it is sweet time having a hearty meal with friends, sitting by the fire, sharing grog and stories of journeys and of having overcome amazing challenges. One by one, people go off to their rooms, maybe you are left with reminiscing, going over what you will do differently next time. Images stream by. A stretch and it’s time to rest for another brilliant crisp day. As much as Saturn is a hard worker, and play can be hard work, Saturn makes you know it’s good to take time for yourself. We need those between times.

On the ground, Saturn in Capricorn are expert at building sustainable homes that will last forever, be well lived in for the right price! Remarkable features might be beautiful stained glass windows, skylights, strong timbers, special insulation. Landscaping may include reclaimed fencing, skillful terracing and artful stonework installations. Restoration and renovation are natural for them. Utilities are low and sustainably rendered.

Between nature’s laws and the rules for safe construction, Saturn and Capricorn have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. They are good at law enforcement, often take on a parental role, position of CEO, the boss. Chores may be important and no driving a car before your time or going out with ones older than you! Saturn might find us setting more clear boundaries for ourselves. We may become more clear how much time things take. Saturn with money planets or locations may require a strict budget. The other side of the coin is finances thrive, payback for long term hard work well done!

Saturn in Capricorn will likely bring more responsibilities to many who thought they couldn’t handle anymore! They may find themselves doing more than they ever expected, maybe even being asked to be the boss! Some will be pleased to find themselves doing quite well. Do negotiate a good salary, additional salary or a percent of the take. Others may find they need to back off and lighten the load. Chronic ailments sometimes stem from being too tired, tired all the time. Your body is not able to recover. As you get older, take that nap!

Knees may become important. Bending and proper surrender is a life skill. Overtaxing them has consequences. Bones and joints can only take so much stress. Don’t take yourself to the breaking point. Skin can suffer. Keep your pantry stocked with good quality food for road closed situations. Keep your body warm so you can get good rest.

In childhood, young Capricorns often have health challenges, but get super strong with age! They may be quite serious, but become cleverly funny, have a subtle wit, are truly funny comedians! Capricorn rules age. They are down to earth with a real smile when it comes. They deal with things as they happen and are often reliable to their friends even when they are down themselves. Saturn may bring some health cures, better living conditions and benefits for elders.

Saturn will reassesses relationships. Cappies take their relationships seriously. When they make a commitment their preference is to loyally keep it. Sometimes they stay too long. The other person may ‘need’ them. It has become a habit to suffer. They think it’s their fault. I’m no quitter. If I work hard enough and be a good person things will change. I’m too old to do this. Ok. Some of that may be true, but it doesn’t mean it will necessarily make it better. Take good care of yourself and talk with good solution oriented friends, advisors or counselors. If none of that is happening for you, wonderful! Keep letting your partner know how much you love them and are grateful they are in your life! They are lucky to have you!

SATURN RETURNS Saturn will be in Capricorn from Dec 19, 2017 and Dec 16, 2020. At the end of that time, Saturn will advance into Aquarius then retrograde back into Capricorn for awhile. If your Saturn is late Capricorn, check with your astrologer to see exactly when your Return is. Saturn was last in Capricorn 1988-91.

First Saturn Returns are at age 28/29. The second is about age 58. They can be serious. At age 28/29, many start lifelong careers, get significant promotions, get married, buy a house and the first child is on the way! For some, there can be hardships that cause delays and expected dreams never do come true. The Great Spirit has other plans for you. For some a Return may not even be a blip on the radar ’cause all’s well. 58 happens either way as well. There may be a second chance, retirement, a whole new tack in life! However it is, it will be Capricorn style.

CAPRICORN WITH OTHER SIGNS

Capricorn is the third and last of the Earth signs. The fertile lowlands and meadows, farms, are Taurus domain. Virgo tends the plants and animals, does superb property management, cleans the houses, is nanny to the children. Capricorn views them from that breathtaking hillside building they built, or from the high rise top floor, penthouse suite!

Earth signs generally get along with Water signs, but not always. Saturn/Cap is a hard worker. Pisces not so much. If the surf is up, they’re gone. If the business is music/film it can be a downright magical combination! Cancer and Cap are both highly interested in financial security, a good home for the family, family lineage, good jobs, long term relationships. Cap needs to consider their feelings, spend time with them. Scorpio is not only interested in superior financial commitments and insurance, a secure domain and business, but also needs dedicated and devoted relationships – both personal and business. Scorpio also wants your good health – state of mind and body. Capricorn is right on board with all that. Capricorn deeply values longevity and a history of success and integrity.

Saturn and Capricorn challenge the other Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer and LibraAries is boss allergic, independent to a fault! They are innovative rather than obedient. They want to be first! Cap needs to give them room to maneuver. Cancers like a supportive mothering relationship, consideration of their feelings. Saturn/Cap is sometimes just all business. Either do the job now or come back when you can. They don’t have time for this, get someone else. And maybe they are right. Let it go and get work more to your Spirit. At home, Cap, make time for the family and don’t talk business at that special time. They love you. Libra is social and wants you to be polite. Cap can be so to the point they are brusque with no amenities. Libra may be caught crying in the restroom. If Libra wasn’t such a good front person and so artistic, Cap might send them packing in a minute. If your boss is a Sat/Cap type, see if they balance their sometimes lack of manners with respect and acknowledge your good work. Cap, do a little thinking first. It may be quite worth those extra moments.

That leaves Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and Air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Leo can be a little flamboyant, which often warms that Caps heart as they can walk proud with such a glamourous Being! Sagittarius is hard to pin down since they love to travel so much, so unless it’s a travel business they do together, Cap doesn’t feel they are reliable. Gemini just keeps Cap spinning. The information better be good and succinctly given or they are banished! Aquarius was born to break rules and Sat/Cap lives for rules. However, if they are collaborating in a community organization, it works!

If you are older than 28/29, wherever Saturn is in your birth chart right now is where it was 28/29 years ago! Do know that the other planets are NOT where they were 28/9 years ago, so there will be some the same and a lot not! Each of your houses or sections of your chart have special purpose. Whatever ways Saturn is aspecting planets or factors in your chart, it is often memorable, sometimes profound.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns!

capricorn-bruce-kirkby-adventurer-goats

Though many of you have never heard of Jan 8, 1968 Capricorn Bruce Kirkby, he is well known and accomplished in his field!

Per TravelChannel.com, in the world of travel, Canadian Bruce Kirkby is a jack-of-all-trades: adventurer, guide, writer and photographer. His journeys have taken him to more than 80 countries, including the wildest and most remote corners of the planet. He has crossed Iceland by foot, traveled through Mongolia by horse, been shot at in Borneo, and been taken hostage in Ethiopia.

Bruce is a weekly travel columnist for The Globe and Mail. He is the author of 2 best-selling books, Sand Dance: By Camel Across Arabia’s Great Southern Desert (2001) and The Dolphin’s Tooth: A Decade in Search of Adventure (2007).

Bruce’s work also appears regularly in publications including The New York Times, EnRoute and Time magazine, and National Geographic selected his images to be among the best adventure photography of the decade. Previously, Bruce hosted CBC’s prime-time reality show No Opportunity Wasted, for which his mission was to help regular people overcome personal fears and accomplish the seemingly impossible.

Quite a resume!

You may have seen him and his family on the Travel Channel’s series Big Crazy Family Adventure. It follows the family as they travel from British Columbia to Ladakh, India (more than 13,000 miles), by every mode of transportation except planes.

Bruce is a dedicated family man, and backpacks with GOATS – the Capricorn animal! Amid the clatter of hooves and tiny bleats, we were under way. In the 100 mile pack trip with his 4 year old son Bodi, one of the goats he selected for the trip, the snowy white one, was named Capricorn! Each carried about 30 pounds of gear. Their lightweight fabric saddles were held in place by plastic buckles, the panniers slung using Velcro and hooks. Son’s questions? Will the goats miss home? Where will they sleep? Where will we sleep? When is snack time? Read more about this precious adventure!

Yep, their families worry, but Bruce says:  Heck, I’m trying to get the grandmothers to come on more adventures with us!

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Capricorn!

Capricorn Builders Working Smart

Building a great New Year working smart and working together!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Time now to roll up our sleeves, join forces, build for a sustainable future! Mid degree Capricorns will find their old debris being hauled away. Overburdened, they became forgeries of their former selves. At core, they are molten steel, reformed in strength, meeting their destiny with an exceptional resolve. Some relationships will undoubtedly be fated, debts were and are made, some paid. Healing may be hard work but worth it. Some healing will be of past painful experiences, some of skin and bones. A therapist for mind and a physical therapist for body could be worth their salt. Step through the fear.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! In their office Capricorn is looking over the time sheets, the return on investment. It knows how precious our efforts are, how our cumulative work adds up. Lost time affects us all as others wait for us. It learns values from those ROI sheets, what’s real. Neptune dreams a vision for Capricorn. Sensible or not, it’s a template. Capricorn builds Neptunes’ dream, magically joining studs and artfully building in stone, a gift, a diamond forever. Might be a temple, an archway through the garden, a divine wall to keep us safe, dividing local from wild, a set of keys for your new home!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Capricorn’s planet is Saturn, and they are so unlike Uranus, Aquarius. Saturn was Uranus’ son, and Saturn was the bad boy – killed his Father! Usually we think of Uranus as the heretic, perhaps unkempt, unruly unpredictable. The amazing part of the story is: The period in which Cronus [Saturn] ruled was called the Golden Age, as the people of the time had no need for laws or rules; everyone did the right thing, and immorality was absent. Capricorn in today’s astrology is still the one in charge. Uranus is the inventor, networker, internet, flight, electronics expert! Capricorn is earth; Uranus rules the heavens, and in Aries is fiery, challenging every moment! Uranus leads Capricorn the scientist into unexplored realms, in the company of super leaders. Capricorn keeps their feet on the ground, incorporating extraordinary concepts into daily life!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Traditional business and a good marriage are just right for most Capricorns. They are willing to work. Chiron in Pisces helps them see the inner workings of things, understand more subtle relationship structures, let go when necessary. Chiron calls on them to heal from deep past wounds, to teach what they learned. Chiron in Neptune principles may be idealized, but Capricorn expertly converts them to useful ways of living anyone can do while still keeping them magical!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Capricorn is Saturn’s sign, but Sagittarius is one of those quite different neighboring signs. Saturn and Capricorn are Earth. Sagittarius is easily sidetracked fire. Sag is far vision personified while Saturn has a steady unblinking here and now focus! Of course, if Sagittarius shows Capricorn the easiest path, and promises a bonus, who wouldn’t keep that focus?! Saturn in Sagittarius shows that even having fun can BE the business! Two for the price of one! Paid to play! Sag is always looking out ahead. Early course corrections can really pay off. Capricorn holds Sagittarius accountable for his grand ideas, and asks him to stick around until the project is well established.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Capricorn is not seduced by cute or merely pretty; intelligence makes a difference. They aren’t as social. Your words need to carry weight. They are not so impressed by who you know, as they are by who you introduce them too. If you represent them successfully in court they are happy to pay. Capricorns love classic art, historical documents, structures by adept artisans. Jupiter can artfully expand Capricorn’s business, and may have just the right ways of making suggestions. Capricorn needs to listen carefully and kindly because Jupiter in Libra can have good intentions and excellent advice. Jupiter in Libra has a finely tuned sense of balance, perspectives that incorporate the best of both sides. Jupiter may be a bit overblown at times in his enthusiasm, but look at the backbone of what they are saying! That’s your framework to start from!

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns! May your new year be productive and rewarding in every way!


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Capricorn, the Winter Magicians!

Capricorn the Mountain Goat at home in the rocks!

Capricorns, Goats, are devilishly and delightfully capricious. As youngsters, tails up, they run and leap and play at full tilt along the rock tops! They are impulsive and make unpredictable zig zag turns and twists in mid air! If you aren’t watching, it could seem devious when they sneak up on you! They are not afraid of mingling, nor easily led. They have a keen sense for BS, and will go contrary if there is a problem with morality.

Though generally obedient children and law abiding adults, there is an inbred independence, a need to be free to lead! As leaders they are free! Walking sure footedly, wherever footing is available, takes them places others never go. No wonder at times they seem to be ‘above’ us, aloof, maybe even intimidating.

With their high intelligence, command and leadership are natural. And they can back it up! They can lower their goat horns and butt their way through difficult obstacles. They can push forward past or chase off competitors and predators, defend their own! They may be exhausted, get down on their knees from time to time, but hard work is something they can do. It carries them through.

Winter Magicians! They are keen survivors that can thrive in sparse conditions, hostile or negligent situations. They make do with what is there, get through hard times. They have courage born of necessity. Perseverance and stamina are incredible, bringing successes beyond their humble beginnings. Yet, at times, remembrances and fear of falling back may bring seeming greed. Really it is their reaction to fear of starvation.

Loyal. Parents and family are important, whether their parents, particularly their Father, was there for them or for some reason couldn’t be. Many vow to be the best parents they can be, knowing what loss feels like. Being overprotective or demanding with rigid rules, implies to the child that there is much to be feared or that your child is, will not be capable, so go a little easier. Let them make a few errors and learn how to recover – another good old fashioned life skill. No shame or embarrassment necessary for an honest effort. Your children will understand the goodness of discipline, how being given responsibilities is a trust.

Cappies are generally healthy, even more so as they get older! Skeleton and bones, the knees, joints, teeth, skin, nails and scalp are your points of concern. Arthritis, rheumatism, tooth decay, crooked teeth and skin problems may plague you. Talk with vibrant experts excited about their specialty, who keep up in their field and aren’t afraid to explore alternative possibilities! See a sports doctor who is interested in more than day to day surviving and maintenance at a tolerable level! See someone who wants your above average, even exceptional health no matter what age you are! Look for experts that want to heal the cause and never have to see you again! LOL!

Capricorn works can be earth sciences and discovery, is the revered CEO, are well known stone mason artisans and remarkable builders. Working with the aged, retirement services, senior communities. Law and law enforcement. Rock and ice climbers, winter sports champions! Historical preservation, environmentalists that use natural primitive ways, low cost utilities, sustainability.

Interesting that the neighboring signs, Sagittarius and Capricorn both have 1/2 and 1/2 symbols. Sagittarius is the Centaur, half human, half horse. Capricorn is the Seagoat, half goat, half fish. Since ancient times, Capricorn was also associated with Mephistopheles, a demon featured in German folklore. And at Christmas, Capricorn’s time, we have Krampus, who scares away evil winter ghosts. He is half goat (Capricorn), half demon. These signs belong to two or more dimensions, both often quite psychic. Capricorn is a most complex sign, perhaps even the most complicated sign. It takes a special person to befriend a Capricorn or be befriended by one.

Time comes when age is an honor with wisdom and a softening. We do what we can. We do our best at the time. Super professionalism, a career, mentoring, melts into time for ourselves perhaps. A staunch by the book religion may become more personally intuitive. Black and white patterns with squares are still there, but it becomes an inner expression, a merger of the art of an adept and motivation for the engine of life.

There are so many famous Capricorns in all walks of life! Here are just a very few: Michelle Obama, Justin Trudeau, Kate Middleton, Khalil Gibran, Elvis Presley, Kevin Costner, Stephen Hawking and Nostradamus!

Blessed be! See you on the mountain!

Saturn is moving backward slowly in Libra, 29, 28, degrees during Pisces time.  Saturn is the Grand Master, the Magician; Libra is the Alchemist!  That combo is hard to beat!  Those of you with planets in late degrees are still feeling the Reaper’s call for solutions, working in a timely way with others, sometimes alone and forlorn, sometimes overwhelmed by engagement needing to restore balance, sometimes achieving serious new ground.  Some of you will be feeling your age, youth or elder.  Many necessities of parenting are up:  being the role model, establishing responsibility, setting boundaries may take some effort and repetition, practice to work out details.  Respect and reality go hand in hand.  Accepting things the way they are, realizing what each of us is capable of at any given time, allowing others the grace of their own timing is a blessing.  This is not a time for one-upmanship or superiority that can create painful schisms, set people back into periods of recovery.  Sincere praise and gratitude can make such a difference, inspire a longing for further success, growth and change.  Let growth start as it will, perhaps just a mere twinkle of Spirit, a feeling of recognition.  Let people get used to their new shoes, slips and falls and all.  Oh, and give yourself some of that praise too!


Jupiter continues in Taurus, 5 to 10 Degrees, during Pisces.  In its travel to the Light, it is steadfastly leaving a trail of blessings – generosity, patience, ethical solutions to important and simple matters.  It is inviting a centered peace based on our realizing our self-worth, opening to new perspectives valuing others.  Know if you are prone to panic, learn how to gently self soothe.  If it is yours, own it.  If not, go on your good way.  We are learning, day by day, and it’s sticking!

March 12, 2012  Jupiter trines Pluto exact.  Jupiter is Master Gamesman on the Hunt, both games to play, and game to eat, to make our Spirits full!  Pluto is Master Salvage Treasure Hunter, calling the Hounds to find all that is worthy of recycling and resurrecting, from stuff to people!  Therapies are a good choice now.  I would say we are going someplace Good!  It is a wealth aspect, on its 3rd and last time, finishing a run of 7 consecutive positive Jupiter-made aspects that started June 2011.  This wealth comes from Earth herself, Taurus and Capricorn, fields and rugged mountains.  Taurus is our bulls and cows – meat, milk, leathers; Capricorn those frolicky little goats of wool and cheeses!  Wealths of Pluto start with your deepest internal personal power, the power of the magic of darkness, healing and facing death itself, and life.  Every day it is how we use our ability to share, merge, incorporate, handle monies with others.  Intimacy is a precursor that indicates how we manage our connections.  Trust is a major factor.  Truth.  How we lay our eyes on the long-term goals, how we walk the Path.  Pluto can be micro, while Jupiter is macro, the whole world at its traveling seven-league boot tips!  Take a clean look inside, then increase your stride!  Connected to the wellspring, you know where you are going, alone or together, and are willing to reach the distance!  Pluto rules Scorpio, and Jupiter rules the next sign, Sagittarius!  Jump right up and ride that rainbow!

2011 Starts with the Solar Eclipse/New Moon, Jan 4 AND the Jupiter/Uranus Conjunction at 27 Pisces, 4:52 AM Pacific!

Every 14 years we get this Jupiter/Uranus conjunction – 1969, 1983, 1997 and now, 2010-11. Jan 4 is the last of the 2010-11 set of three. The first was June 8, 2010, the second Sep 18, 2010 Jupiter and Uranus alone are explosive, wanting to be free, but with Pluto in Capricorn soberly and relentlessly cleaning house – we are clearing any unused, not likely to ever use again stuff, having freecycle giveaway fever – we are literally seeing our way clearly, making room for new things to come, and doing it!  Many people are feeling lighter, freer, bigger spirited, proud they let go, and are finally off on new ventures they can hardly believe were possible!  This extraordinary aspect brings far reaching opportunities, major multiplying of connections, magical technological breakthroughs, surprises, spiritual limitlessness!  Teaching, promotions, travel, publishing are magical!  Truth becomes more complete.  Pisces gives us what Eugene Gendlin calls a ‘felt-sense’ of things, what is known to be truest for us personally right now.  From that authentic place, comfortable because it is true and is our current potent position, we are on point!  Talk about internal combustion!  Yet, there will be challenges for people born in the late days of Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius or with planets in those degrees.  They may be pushed out of their comfort zone, both in mind and Spirit.  And that may go better than expected, as new explorations are made, opportunities perceived, potentials expanded!  Even the challenges of this aspect are more likely lucky than not!

The last two times this conjunction occurred in PISCES was in 1251, the first Shepherd’s Crusade, an unsuccessful campaign to rescue a popular French king, and 1334, no recorded events near the time of the conjunction.  That was 677 and 760 years ago!  Not so common a combo, our conjunction in Pisces.  On the previous conjunction in Pisces, Sep 18, 2010, there was no extraordinary news.  We will see what Jan 4 brings.

2010 Events during Jupiter in Pisces? Yes, some quite unique.
• Two world record art at auction sales, the topper Picasso’s Nude at $106 million!
• Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill
• Copiapo Chile 33 miners return to surface after record 69 days!
• International Space Station record time for continuously inhabited since Nov 2, 2000
• WikiLeaks releases diplomatic cables

Jupiter rules the biggest, massive, travel, long distance, Truth vs diplomacy!
Water sign Pisces rules art, oceans, places of solitude, miracles!

Not only is this conjunction a major aspect bringing in our NEW YEAR, but it is sweetened by an exact trine, that’s the best, from VENUS in Scorpio!  That means love, beauty, art, power, healing, money, and if well done, a potential more than you can imagine!  We like that, a lot!

Jan 4 Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 1:03 AM Pacific, 13 Capricorn!

This eclipse Moon squares Capricorn’s ruler Saturn 7 AM, then conjuncts Mars 3:49 PM!  The square could bring things to a standstill or there be delays.  With Mars, things can be hot – sexy, angry, on fire getting things done!  Ask how can we do it to move things along.  Career matters and reputation may figure strongly, fathers, your spiritual commitments, a mission.  Have a Plan B, and maybe a C!  Rather than dwell, have a planned distraction in mind.  Could be a related topic. 

The eclipse Sun squares Saturn right away on Jan 7.  But, it doesn’t conjunct Mars until it enters a close 5 degree conjunction with Mars starting Jan 14.   Still in conjunction though in different signs, Mars enters Aquarius Jan 15, then Sun Jan 20, now in a same sign again, Aquarius.  Traveling closely together, Mars moving fast, keeping ahead of the Sun, the exact conjunction is finally made a month after our eclipse on FEB 4th!!!!

New ventures started at this time will have mixed results.  Sun square Saturn is generally not a good launch combo – a lot of uphill work, too tired, blocked, broken, tedious, not enough money to do it justice, late, finally gives up.  I know for some the challenge is the glory, and some succeed against all odds, but it’s not for all of us.  Used well, Master Saturn puts the brakes on, waits for it, puts the finishing touches on the launching pad.  Capricorn is very careful, the instinctive goat, skirting danger, but sure footed!  The Jupiter/Uranus conjunction is incredibly lucky, and we don’t want to miss it!  It will depend on how your personal chart combines with these aspects whether you go ahead or wait.  The expression of the eclipse energy may not get going until the Sun carries it to Mars!  Once there, Mars surges forward, leading the race, doesn’t miss a step!  The exact conjunction, or very close to it, may be the culmination. 

Plus Two Perihelions!

Jupiter Perihelion May 17/18  Another reason this Jupiter/Uranus conjunction is super charged is because this is Jupiter’s Perihelion year!  It is closest to the Sun in its 12 year cycle, moving its fastest This is why it sweeps through Aries so quickly!  

Specific spice to our conjunction is that  Jan 3 at 10 AM Pacific, the day before the Eclipse, Earth will be PerihelionAnd our days are literally shorter!  In spite of winter’s slower pace, there is still survival’s urgency, the need to make our actions count.  Some believe the Perihelion moment is the true New Year chart!  Here is the chart for Santa Barbara CA:

Earth Perihelion, True New Year?

Happy Eclipse, Conjunction, and Perihelion! 
Happy NEW YEAR!

First, if you ever thought of Capricorn as a dark and gloomy sign, I am here to show you, per the Goats, Capricorn’s animal, what Capricorn, Saturn can be! Note that goat wink in the very beginning! If you love goats, you might have to watch it twice!

Now, with that in mind….

Capricorn, Saturn, the Sacred Builder to 2012

Here was the question: When Saturn (Capricorn’s Planet) leaves a house [could apply to a sign as well as a house], does he leave a reward? I’ve read both “yes” and “no.”

My response:

A few thoughts on how to prove how Saturn has worked for you or not – For the average size astrological house, if you use an unequal house system, Saturn takes 2 ½ years to go through, making aspects as he goes. You could track events to see what happened at those times, seeing your personal specific accumulated gain, changes and how you felt when you started and how you feel about those things now.  A lot can happen in 2 ½ years!

A long term way of looking would be to go back 29 years when Saturn was there before, see what you did then, and how different, or the same, your life is now.

Because Saturn moves that slowly, you may not perceive what you earned, being such an integral part of your daily affair, you don’t notice the difference until sometime later, when you hear yourself saying, Ah, that was the time when I …………………….   If the reward is a principle, a perception, a state of mind, change of attitude, in other words, invisible, you may not ‘see’ it. Count all your blessings.

If you did nothing, you could not only not get a ‘reward,’ but be in the hole. Classic Saturn phrases could be you get what you give, you reap what you sow – karma stuff. But even if that happens, you see that, and the gift/reward becomes your seeing that you need to do something to make something happen! You have to answer the phone, speak to the person that says ‘Hi,’ get out of your bed.

I don’t think it’s as much Saturn leaving a reward, as you meeting life. The question might be better put, ‘How did you meet the matters of that house when Saturn was in that house?’ Did you stand up to the plate, is it a weak spot?  The Spirit of Capricorn, an Earth sign, wants tangible results – did  you make the dream come true, make it so?!

Capricorn, Saturn, are the great builders, achievers – where transiting Saturn is now in your chart is where you are currently building.  May be small beginnings, but the seed is there. Though it may be under its soil covers at present, the seed is in the garden, and what seeds can become is amazing!  Oak and redwood trees, tall buildings!

Build on…on our way to 2012. You ARE the Architects of our future!

With Pluto in Capricorn since 2008 until 2024, just remember to get down on your knees frequently.  You know, Capricorn rules the knees – bending to Spirit’s will, supplication, surrender in a good way….   Little burro’s carry heavy loads…core strength is everything!  Doing knee exercises, will help with the kneeling….

Blessings to all you Capricorns, Happy Birthdays!
