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!

Windsurfer Nancy Rios of the United States of America competed in the Women’s RS:X class race held at the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center during day 4 of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games on August 12, 2008 in Qingdao, China. (Photo by Clive Mason/Getty Images AsiaPac)  Nancy has Neptune in a grand trine with her Sun/Jupiter/Mercury and Moon!

Feb 3 Neptune into its own sign Pisces for 13 years until March 2025. Neptune takes 168 years to orbit, so only those of us living now get to experience the potency of this magic!  Neptune and Chiron have been traveling together since 2008.  Chiron is about two times as fast as Neptune, so now will be moving on, leaving Neptune behind, though both will be in Pisces for the next six+ years.

Neptune first entered Pisces back on April 4, 2011, jump started by the amazing Aries Stellium!  See the chart!  It retrograded back into Aquarius, finishing up support group matters, realigning finances, now Neptune is on his way, no going back!

Don’t ever think of Neptune, or its sign Pisces, as a lack luster planet or sign!  They quiver with life!  Ocean water is their element, and it takes power to meet power, or you die.  Intuition is prime.  The ability to morph, act, make music, transform themselves and others, is beyond words.  It takes strength to know when to retreat, to rest, be in recovery, to do it.  It is work to meditate, to live spiritual tenets, keep faith when the world is falling.

It’s from life generated in your own personal primordial tide pool, to gliding the silvery sails of Spirit!  It’s living  in colonies with your brethren, touching, close as sea anemones on a rock, bunks in ships at sea, monks in a monastery.  It is swimming at exquisite depth, total immersion, prayer/meditation, 100% tuned in, safely alert to danger, transformation possible!  Being swept away tsunami style, or still at the moment of tide’s turn, highs and lows, advance and retreat.  Sleep and dreams, daydreams, waking visions.  There is a terrific amount of involvement – fishing industries, boatyards and watercraft sales, ocean sports, retreats and spas, cruises – floating cities, ocean’s edge tourist towns with parties, music, drink, theatre.  Other places, some beaches, islands, are remote, untouched, one can be alone, time stands still, suspended.  Imagination is set free, visions accessed.  Some come gradually with each cleansing of life’s tide; some come whole in complete understanding, an insight, the Gate is open, the Threshold crossed.  Mythically, there are Mermaids and Magicians.  There are whole skies full of stars at night with no land in sight; you can hear the sound of your own thinking.  Close your eyes………

Each of us, in turn, will be touched, as Neptune goes through the degrees, one time activating one planet, then another, until it does them all.  What we call the Mutable signs, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, will be activated most strongly, perhaps confusion at first, but stirring  new options.  Fellow water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, may take things in stride, flowing with advantages that may have seemed hidden.  Leo and Libra will be nudged and niggled, peripherally, but perhaps too busy socially to pay the attention it may be worth.  Capricorn and Taurus, could do some good business incorporating Piscean talent and products, events.

Scorpio – Fires Within

Wednesday Oct 26 | 12.56 PM Pacific | Super New Moon | 3 Degrees Scorpio   This is the 5th of 2011’s 6 Super Moons.  Super Moons are when the Moon is 90% or greater of its closest approach to Earth.  When it is a full moon, it appears as much as 15% bigger!  They indicate more intensity, higher tides, strong storms if there is one, higher seismic activity.  This is a NEW MOON, and Scorpio is noted for intensity of the deep dark water variety!  Records could be set, relationships could start or crumble, there could be revelations about money sources, resurrection of old alliances, brushes with death, healing through saturation/immersion, miracles!  Time alone may be deeply needed and appreciated, a transfixion of quietness.  This is happening midday, so you may need to get away, take a bit later lunch, to meditate or have a private meeting.  Being a new moon, perhaps it is small beginnings, let things grow in their natural way.  The temptation is to use force, but avoid pushing at it, causing a distortionate break or growth ahead of its time.  Being only two days before the Jupiter trine Pluto puts it in that aspect’s hot zone!  There may be an ebb then a leap!  Read on….

Thursday Oct 27:  Occultations are Eclipses too, not just Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.  Oct 27’s Moon occultation Mercury is our last of the year.  Moon is emotional, Mercury is logical, and they are making a merger!  Feel what you think, say what you feel, but be really careful because this one is in Scorpio.  You can’t take back what you have said, and it may cut deep.  If a conversation even hints at turning South, let it go, NOW.  There may be an unanticipated price down the road, even revenge.  And it takes a lot of effort to repair, sometimes can’t be repaired.  The other side is someone may tell you something more valuable than you even realize at the time.  You may be healed or given a key piece of information that transforms you, your situation, relationship.  And it may be a blessing in disguise.  There could be an ending that serves you well in the long-term, and actually has been overdue.  Be able to engage, listen big, disengage if needed.  It’s a life skill worth having.  This is especially true this occultation because first Mercury is activated by its direct alignment with the Moon at 22 Scorpio at 7:08 PM, then the Moon passes over Venus at 23 Scorpio at 9:23 PM, just a little over 2 hours later!

First the New Moon quiets us, making us thoughtful in behind-the-scenes observant Scorpio, on the 26th.  Then the Moon, Mercury, Venus combination makes us extra aware of home and family, about love, the 27th.  It opens our capacity to attune, speak our love and affection, to kindly and potently tell what we want, both personally and in business, to see more clearly how we can make the money to support ourselves, loved ones, do things we naturally love.  These are the catalysts and a poignant part of the forming Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the very next day, the 28th, at 9:46 AM Pacific!

Friday Oct 28 Second Jupiter trine Pluto at 5 degrees Taurus and Capricorn.  This and the Jupiter sextile Chiron (the next one will be Dec 6) have been the aspects that have kept the Stock Market up this year.  Jupiter is expansionary, lucky, wise, foresees the directions things will take, is optimistic, will take long odds and win!  It has an extraordinary ability with perspective, watches the big picture, is playful.  Can’t keep a good Sag/Jupiterian down!   Pluto is the planet of wealth and Chiron of business!  Pluto cleans up messes, is expert at rebuilding after losses, recovery from illness, never says die!  When in top order, it is a clean machine!  Deep and internal cleansing, firing people who are not able to make the returns needed, are its forte.  Though at times painful for the recipient, in the long-term, the move is usually the best and reform and transformation happen.  Jupiter wants space; Pluto wants mergers and deep intimacy.  So, if a merger happens, it is probably a better deal than usual.  There has to be a real attraction for Jupiter to see a future in it and accept the transaction.  It will likely be a long-term value.  See more at last month’s pre Jupiter trine Pluto post.

Jupiter is fame, fiery, education, and speed sports; Pluto is death and healing, charisma, power.  The first trine was July 7 – on  July 8 we lost Betty Ford, died at the age of 93. She was known primarily for her work post-whitehouse and for founding one of the most famous rehabilitation facilities (The Betty Ford clinic) in the world. Widow of former president Gerald Ford.  Coming into this second trine, we have lost two.  1) Steve Jobs Oct 5 (4 degree trine): Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple, died due to  complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Jobs was known for his keynote speeches that were given each year to update the loyal Apple followers, as well as his enlightening interview style.  2) Oct 16 (2 degree trine): IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon died after suffering severe injuries in a spectacular 15-car wreck at the Las Vegas Indy 300. He was 33 years old. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year’s event) was critically hurt when his car sailed over the top of another during a massive, fiery wreck on Lap 11.  Ironically he had been driving test cars to avoid exactly that.

All of these people made powerful contributions, each in their own way.  May they rest in Peace.  And may we LIVE this aspect well, and carry on its teachings with Grace.

Cancers to 2012, Emotional Temperance, Spiritual Balance

Night walk, evening birds settling, crickets, music drifting from open windows, a little jasmine, mmm.  And someone is baking an apple pie.  And you?  Are you worried, concerned for your children, something at school, your budget, your home needs some repairs, an elder parent needs more care than you might be able to give?  It’s ok.  Good time for emotional sorting, letting the day’s feeling flow by, letting go of what’s not important, what you can’t change, knowing things will work out, thinking about who you can rely on or reach out to.  Good.  Deep breath.  Just let go.  Bless you for being so loving and caring.      

This is the perfect environment to use your intuition clearly, to make excellent decisions.  Others may be inundated with their fears, some are even high on their troubles, sleep may be a distant fantasy, crazy is right beside you!  Your reminding them we have natural cycles, cycles within cycles, that it simply won’t always be this way, can help them recenter, restore them to spiritual balance.   Next time it might be them calming you!       

Maybe crabs walk sideways, to circle the issues, see things from all points of view.  They are walking around the Great Circle of Life, this time leading to 2012!  Hold my hand, let’s go together.       

Summer Solstice Magic!

Summer is precious time!  You can migrate north, or stay and tend your garden!  You can set up a pool for the kids, take a journey!  If you are an urban farmer, there is at least triple the work!  Plants are bigger, more hungry, more maintenance, plus harvesting, and as they finish producing, soil needs refurbishing, more needs to be planted.  Also it is a time, even now, to be thinking of fall planting.  This is so Cancerian a time, nurturing, providing food for your family, securing the time to come.     

Play is definitely on the agenda!  How can you resist the radiance of abundant flowers, the fine weather, wonderful outdoor swims and water sports, hiking, camping, barbeques, vacations!  The joy of these experiences together bring a natural bonding, support for each other.  Meeting new people on trips extends our cultural acceptance.  For young people, these are lifelong skills that strengthen our sense of self, we can be part of a larger community.      

The loving protection and shelter, care without demanding a payment that Cancers give, allow a safe space for a precious innocence, exploration without bias.  The relaxation, summer’s heat melting us, lets us feel our feelings more deeply.  Along with all the brilliant sky and sunlight, summer can be a coming home, no matter where you are.    

Summer Love & Magic! May your beauty shine among the stars!
