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!

Jupiter square Saturn Hurdler Leo Rollins, Virgo Pearson

Jupiter may heroically burst over Saturn’s hurdles with flying colors! 2013 Moscow hurdler winners Aug 18, 1991 Brianna Rollins and Sep 19, 1986 Sally Pearson!

September 25 to Nov 30, 2014 Jupiter and Saturn traveled in a close square together but the aspect never became exact. Read Now the exact aspect is finally formed!

This is Jupiter’s last aspect while Jupiter is in Leo. While Saturn is retrograding back in Scorpio, Jupiter has advanced in Leo to make this once only square. Singletons like this are usually checkpoints. How are things going?

Oddly, though Jupiter is a cheerful planet, it may bring, amplify, melancholy with Saturn. Saturn in Scorpio knows where the bodies are buried. Jupiter is just too darn happy in the face of what Saturn knows are its own weak points. It generally guards them carefully, but Jupiter is just too big spirited and not noticing the signs, crashes right though the gates. Jupiter wants the truth. The more Saturn holds back, Jupiter in Leo thrives on drama, and just has to know. Besides, they want to help. Saturn may have to let a little water over the dam to keep the wolves at bay. Saturn may just have to pull the ‘none of your business’ card, lay down the privacy law. Sometimes its just plain better not to smoke ’em out. Scorpio has reasons for secrets. The secret they might be forced to reveal could be about you! But, what will out, will out. If so, may it be the best for everyone in the long term.

Jupiter may be stymied by Saturn’s refusal to fund this venture. Jupiter in Leo is super optimistic, ready to roll, inspired by its own steam! Saturn looks askance at this unseasoned newcomer. It quickly, steadfastly, defends the funds, wants proof this is going to work and not be a financial drain. Just because it looks good, Saturn well knows all that glitters is not gold, and won’t be rushed. Saturn in Scorpio looks behind the scenes and under the covers to see what lurks there. This wise combo can out con the cons sometimes, make a recovery if a mistake is made. It is true, some opportunities may be missed due to Saturn’s heel dragging caution. Other times, whew, what a relief they saved you, that you didn’t do it.

Get to work! Jupiter in Leo is education; Saturn in Scorpio builds and hones skills to a fine potent level. Leo style, show people what you can do. Saturn style, start humble right where you are at. One on one, one day at a time, take another step forward. Jupiter in Leo makes plans. Write yours down, including a date to update the plan! Saturn in Scorpio is a hard worker and loves an uphill mountain climb! See yourself leaning into it!

School may have to wait. If the funds just aren’t there, if the scholarship isn’t awarded, work and put your money aside. Reapply at a more auspicious time. You may not get the work you want just yet either. Do you need some more training, qualifications? Knuckle down and do what’s needed. Sometimes a delay is perfect as another, even better opportunity comes instead! Who would have thought?!

Fire and Ice! Leo and Scorpio both have love on their minds. Leo is the romantic, Scorpio mates for life. Leo is even flamboyant, while Scorpio generally prefers a quieter private venue. But either way, their love is intense. Jupiter cleans up well, but both Jupiter and Leo are athletic so may be quite casual more of the time. Saturn is certain you should be respectful and in Scorpio, particularly, a power dresser. However, there are some times when Saturn doesn’t care at all. Why should you pay for something fancy when this old one still has wearable miles in it?!

Leo is romantic, a warm hearted lover. Saturn wants to know about the dowry, and isn’t easily swept off its feet. It wants a true value, both financial and in the integrity of the mate. Leo is impressed by great teachers, status, fame. They may see more in you than you see in yourself. Maybe their love is what you have been waiting for. A bit of hero worship may be good, but if the gap is too much, tiresome wide eyed innocence, it may be boring soon. One day, one outgrows the other, and off they go. Leos like to be admired too. If Saturn in Scorpio is secretly pleased, but undemonstrative, Leos may need more, an equality of shared exuberance just to make their day sweet and feel good about themselves. These two are quite different in this respect. Know if you can really give the goods. When admired, Jupiter in Leo may feel quite honored by Saturn’s high regard that Saturn doesn’t confer casually.

So, Love is a dance. Different as we are, we love each other, we help each other. Being loved makes us feel safe, let’s us clear away old hurts, let go of chronic patterns we forgot how we got. We spend money; we covet and hoard money, afraid to lose it, bound in a long term spiritual attitude of poverty. Sometimes you just have to send yourself a message all will be well, trust yourself, you are a valuable worthy person, spend it and the money you need will come.

If Saturn has been down, fearful in the shadows, Jupiter may be just the breath of Light needed to get out the door, over the hurdle! It’s going to take some courage, and Jupiter in Leo, fearless their middle name, makes a swath wide and bright enough to follow! If they can do it, you can do it! The challenge is set and won! Saturn goats are remarkably agile, and more often than not, land on their feet! Once going, there’s no standing still! Congratulations!

Keep fit, stay strong in your training, conquer your goals! You can do it!

Robert Pattinson

All Taurus, May 13, 1986, Robert Pattinson, is a Brit, played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Quote: ‘Please don’t give me all my luck now. Make it all stretch. I don’t mind waiting. Make it stretch for 70 years.’ He’s a double Cancer – Moon and Ascendant, with his Taurus Sun sextile lucky and famous Jupiter in Pisces! Venus in Gemini gives a wonderful voice.

One of the beauties of earthy Taurus is they just ARE. No need for explanation or discussion. Just be yourself. That’s peace. Don’t need to please anyone. Dress comfortably. Go barefoot, get next to Mama Nature. Everything has value, fits in its natural niche. Doing what you want to do, what you naturally enjoy makes the most sense. Simple. This heart charm is attractive along with often the beauty of a sweet smile, lovely skin, sumptuous curves or great muscles! Hard work farming and eating well and organic go hand in hand with radiant health. In modern city culture that may translate to an urban garden, yoga, lifting weights. Strength is a Taurus asset, whether it is physical prowess, or the patience and perseverance to build a foundation that serves many, to love daily. Safety and regard are cherished traits that people feel they can trust. Reliability builds that trust. Once a Taurus is inspired to action, completing the job is just about guaranteed.

Beauty is a functional asset. It attracts people to your support as a person. It brings people to your cause. The magnetism of your performance draws people to love what you and they are doing so much that they must take care of themselves as well, to continue doing what is so good. Beauty is anywhere from your unique style of action, your endearing idiosyncrasies, your funny smile, exotic voice, to what our culture deems a fine physique, lovely body!  Think on what attracts you to things, to people? Is it emotional security, something that reminds you of a beautiful time in your life, exquisite music, a lovely place in nature, similarity to a loved one? What can you do to make yourself more attractive, more YOU?!  That’s all it takes. YOU are ultimate. When we are exactly that, Peace IS.

Now for some odd Taurus stats from Security Gripes:

• Murderers convicted is 11.4% lower than average (that’s a good thing)
• Burglary with convictions is 13.1% above the national level (Tauruses love to own things!  Sometimes kleptos. :)  )
• Military leaders of the world is 23.2% higher than any other sign (who would have thought?!)

No statistics on this one, but they are usually great huggers!!!

Mar 28   Jupiter Opposite Saturn  This is it’s 3rd and last one!  Not only is it the last of the three, but the very last of all the 2009, 2010 difficult aspects that brought our economy down.  Hooray and hallelujah!  And in the grand scale of difficult aspects, this is not considered high on the list.

Jupiter is the big planet with the Great Red Spot, to me the Third Eye, the Seer – see-er, who looks to the future, far in the distance.  It can afford to be joyful because it knows this too will pass, and if it really is unhappy, can educate people to a different way to improve its chances, or travel on where its offerings will be appreciated, often sharing stories along the way.  In Aries, it thunders along, seven-league boots like never before!

Very different from the usually polite Libra Saturn animal who commits and won’t leave, ever.  It said it would do it, and it will.  Saturn is serious about making it work right here, pruning where needed, tucking in, using what’s at hand.  It sets priorities, and knocks them off the list with great focus, not really minding the hard work.  Great endurance and fortitude, righting and restoring balances, both in personal relationships and community wide.  But don’t be too soft.  Saturn will use its scythe, whether a look, a few to-the-point words, or simply turning its back on you.  You know you need to step up to the plate for real.  It commands respect.

Combining those strategies, or calling on them as you can, is a great skill, that makes a lot of sense, kinda the know ‘when to hold, when to fold’ principle.  Are you running away, or have you over stayed your welcome?  Is the work burdensome with little return, do you need to let go, find a better fit?  Good.  Work the balance, reach out to opposites to improve your style, extend your capacity, enjoy life more.      

Mercury - Fleet Feet, Nimble Mind!

March 30 to April 23, Mercury Retrograde, 24 to 12 Degrees Aries!  In firey spirited Aries it is truly fleet of feet, nimble of mind!  The messenger of the Gods can’t wait this time! It tries out whatever presents itself in the moment, not a moment to lose!  But, as you can, be especially careful not to have your car serviced during retrograde – do it well beforehand or after.  Anticipate any mechanical or motion device needs.  Not a time to buy a car, take up a new sport or dance, make art related to fire, start a new business, print a lot of cards.  If you must do an installation or a seminar, expect delays and a ton of questions, a lot of follow up.  New friendships may fizzle, the new place may lose its sparkle.  As with all Mercury retrograde purchases, get exchangeable or returnable items, large warranties; don’t do anything you can’t afford to make a mistake about.  Not a good time to repaint that wild new color.  After the retrograde, and the Aries stellium is over, you will wonder what got into you!  But, hey, it was spiffy while it lasted!  Who would have ever thought you would do that?!  Maybe it was worth it for that alone!  Next!

American Red Cross founder, Swiss Jean-Henri Dunant, was awarded the first Nobel Peace Prize in 1901.

ARIES is the first sign of Astrology’s first cross of the 3 Grand Crosses of Matter. Its cross is the Cardinal, as in the red bird, Cross. It’s four points are first, itself, Aries, Mars, the Warrior, Protector, Rescuer, Initiator. Opposite is Libra, Venus, the Beloved, partnerships of all kinds, equality, balance, respect, fairness both in beauty and in Spirit. The vertical axis is of Cancer, Moon, at the South, warm at home’s hearth, Mom’s nurturing. Opposite is Capricorn, Saturn, of the North, hard at work out in the world, building, fortifying, at times scrabbling for a toehold, maintaining.

The symbol of the American Red Cross, is red on white, Aries’s two colors! It was founded in Switzerland, a politically neutral country, for humanitarian purposes, to help soldiers. It was brought to the United States by Clara Barton after the Civil War. The symbol was chosen in gratitude to the Swiss founder, Jean Henri Dunant, using the reversed colors of their flag.

The Cardinal Cross is truly a cross of Matter. Without life, it doesn’t matter. Aries gives us that option for life and inspiration. Once gathered up, we can go home, be cared for, be loved, find productive outlet for our creative ability. Bravery and physical prowess are standard equipment for Aries. Standing up to a bully, in behalf of the underdog, when the odds are stacked pretty high, is merely a challenge. They wink at you over their shoulder as they lean right into the fray! Follow tight through the crowd, you’ll make it to the other side, or be first in line at the grocery store!

Ok, so not all Aries are that gallant. In fact there are some complaints they only think of themselves. And that may be true. Yet, we can learn to balance ourselves more appropriately. Take courage, say NO once in awhile. Say YES when you want it. Stand up. You can. Even if you fumble or are wrong. You can sort things out. At least you got started. Do you need to apologize? Would your Aries friend? Probably not. Should you apologize for just being yourself? Probably not.

In this time of needing great courage, stay steady in the Light. If you need help, be wise, ask for it. If you can give help, do it the ways you have that are so special to give, exactly as you can. I wish you and your loved ones the very best, with every breath.

In Dedication, and in Gratitude, to all those in Japan who are risking their lives to make things safe for us. They are Angels of a kind, heroes and heroines for sure.

July 30 Mars in Libra joins the T Square at the Saturn point,
July 31 Mars conjuncts Saturn! (See Saturn Libra T Square)  

Mars might just be the one to tip the scales!  Saturn can be hesitant, but Mars ain’t waitin’!   

Libra - Shiva & Shakti!

Only every two years does Mars go through Libra, the sign of relationships, balance, fairness, negotiations, business partnerships, separations, cross cultural connections, fine arts.  It’s a challenge because Mars’s natural sign is Aries, the opposite sign of Libra!  Mars is masculine, the independent warrior; Libra is ruled by Venus, feminine grace and sharing.  And, Libra is actually also masculine, being air sign!  Integration of our opposite selves, working well together, are acquired talents, challenges worth the learning.  They are tenets of an enriched whole life, comprehensive in scope!  

Now, with Mars not only in Libra, but with exacting Saturn, seeking updates and corrections, lazy mediocre relationships just don’t get the job done, especially if you are the one who has been being crazy!  Kick it up!  Get up your courage and go!  Sexual respect goes a long way.  Take your time, but let it be known you have the passion.  Try something spicy and new!  Show off a bit, and if you fall, laugh together, let it be good fun!  Reasonably serious is good, too serious is tedious.   

Loyal too long?!  Apply for new work!  Great time to start a dance/exercise class.  Apply for art school, a negotiations workshop.   

Lead the way for a day, see how that works, feels.  Act equal, like you are at that level too, or we are all in this together, equal in spirit!  If you are a sheep, not a ram, fine.  Be good at it.  Make your time and actions count.  If you are a ram, find your way through  – walk the wire, find the key, climb other the wall, lower your head and butt!  Look for the weak spots, strengthen the strong areas for the good.   

Resentments and authority struggles, rebelliousness, are good signs of healthy growing, a spiritual protest!  Don’t ignore it!  Take a good look whether it is yours or theirs, or both.  What do you each have to offer?  How can it become sharing?  What about that tone of voice or posturing?  Is parting ways a good solution?  Honor to all?  

This is a good time to see what has been holding you back from your opportunities.  Why do you hesitate?  Is that good to know?  What can you do?  Is it ok just the way it is?     

Stand right on top of that mountain for a better view!

July 20 Fifth and last Saturn inconjunct Chiron, at 29 Aquarius     

Chiron

The day before Saturn enters Libra, it inconjuncts Chiron the last time of five times.  The set started Oct 8, 2008.  The last time was Apr 12, 2010.  All of them have been in Virgo/Aquarius as Saturn has traversed Virgo, a careful and caring time.  Many have been called on to give more than they ever expected or thought they could give.  Many have had to face the worst fears, job and health losses.  Some have lost friends, moved beyond old connections.  Out of it has come a more free, perhaps plenty sober, outlook, adjustments to new ways, even accomplishments, and for many, new friends.  A lot of healing would never have happened had it not been for what seemed like losses at the time.  Stand tall, you made it!      

See also  April 12, 2010 for more info, the 4th of the five inconjuncts….        

July 21 Saturn into Libra until Oct 5 2012     

The Saturn inconjunct Chiron has cleared a lot of debris, healed some long standing matters, making way for cleaner relationships with more truth, clearer mutual purpose, partnerships to be able to discuss their needs as they go.  There are less half truths, accommodating to keep the peace.  There is more loving expression of boundaries, time made and taken to honor each other’s needs.  Lifework now is more suited to our Spirits!  Saturn will be in Libra until Oct 5, 2012.  We have time to learn how to make, improve, restore, and give balance, fairly.  We will get better at crossing divides, sharing culturally, honoring people of all ages. Blessed be.
