Sidereal Aquarius: SELF-DETERMINATION

Then Sun and Jupiter have been applying towards a conjunction (coming together at the same degree + same sign) in sidereal Aquarius since mid-February.

Sun = awareness/self awareness | Jupiter = context/self trust

Planets conjunct the Sun take over the Sun. Jupiter in this position shows us overly identifying with the context while ignoring or being ignorant to the nuance of the details/data.

What is the context with Jupiter in sidereal Aquarius now?

The wound of sidereal Aquarius is erasure, invisibility, being disregarded and ignored.

Nowhere do we see this more clearly than with regard to the emerging public health policy and the way that it is disregarding, erasing, and ignoring the disabled and immunocompromised.

Sidereal Aquarius looks around at all these mirrors (individual people, communities, institutions) and does not see a reflection of their self. And this is because none of these mirrors change in response to their presence/existence. Their existence is inconsequential.

People, community, and institutions are disregarding, erasing, and ignoring the disabled and the immunocompromised. And because most folks don’t IDENTIFY with those labels, they cannot see that their experiences are the same. They don’t know that they are in danger.

Sidereal Aquarius copes with this erasure and invisibility by shrinking, self- deprecation, self-abandonment. It internalizes these wounds and sees itself that way—invisible.

The way out and thru? Self determination.

Self determination is the conjuring up of an image of self that does not rely on the mirrors (people, communities, institutions) to validate or reflect. This is a kind of self acceptance that is a direct rejection of erasure.

The mirrors are literally banking on us shrinking and internalizing the belief that we are unworthy of the dignity of life and safety.

Another side of this is humiliation being weaponized against trans children right now. They are caught up in the gaze of these institutions that are forcing them into invisibility, into abandoning themselves, + taking the eraser to their own bodies before everyone else does.

The New Moon in sidereal Aquarius is March 2

The fill-in-the-blank for this found in the 2022 Sidereal Astrology Guide say:

Establishing new definitions of myself within the context of: [insert your sidereal Aquarius house topics]”

📌 How are you learning to trust that how you see yourself is who + what you actually are, especially within the context of the overwhelming erasure of your truth by everyone and everything around you?

2020 Deja Vu

If you’ve got your 2022 Sidereal Transits iCal or the 2022 Sidereal Astrology Guide you’ll see that both Venus and Mars leave sidereal Sagittarius for Capricorn on Saturday February 26.

The 2020 deja Vu is about to kick up several notches…

Dec 2019 + early Jan 2020 there was a massive stellium in sidereal Sagittarius. By January 23, 2020, Saturn entered Capricorn as did the Sun and Mercury. That weekend Kobe & Gigi Bryant passed a way in a plane crash, & Wuhan locked down to contain covid-19.

March 20, 2020 Mars & Jupiter conjoined in sidereal Sagittarius. Both entered sidereal Capricorn before the month ended. A cascade of shelter in place orders and travel restrictions occurred across the world.

This happened after weeks of the US government claiming that coronavirus was a mild flu.

Same thing happened December 2020 into 2021. Mask mandates lifted, unrestricted travel, assumptions of covid immunity or the “end of the pandemic…

Same thing happened December 2021 into 2022. Mask mandates lifted, unrestricted travel, assumptions of covid immunity or the “end of the pandemic…

And the same this is happening again in rapid succession.

Again, a major shift of planets from sidereal Sagittarius to Capricorn. Whatever your political convictions or religious beliefs, Covid is not over, the pandemic has not ended. This weekend begins another drop down to earth, back to reality.

We choose sides when planets transit sidereal Sagittarius.

We draw lines and boundaries of allegiance to people and places based upon the political convictions we align with. Remember, politics is about power, who you believe should have, and what they should do with it.

📌What boundaries have you drawn in your life and relationships as a show of allegiance to your religious and political convictions?

📌 What are those convictions?

When planets come to sidereal Capricorn, our convictions are tested. Not in a contest to see who is most sincere about their beliefs. This is a test to see how they hold up against the realities of material reality and survival.

Sidereal Capricorn teaches us that the material consequences of our encounters with reality define reality. Sidereal Sagittarius is the story we tell about that reality and how we interpret the consequences.

But death is death.

We tell many stories about death, but it is an irrefutable reality.

Conspiracies about how and whether or not it actually happened are as varied as they can be. But the material consequences of that encounter exist whether or not we believe it.

As Venus and Mars enter and move through sidereal Capricorn, the fervor with which we have severed, and the urgency with which we’ve pledged allegiance meets the constraints a reality. This is a reality that may have appeared to change. But that appearance is not reality…

The stories we believe about who we need and the reality of who and what is available forces us to confront contradictions that offend our convictions.

What we believe about power and the convictions that inform those beliefs must contend with the limits of material reality.

Is the pandemic over?

We’re about to find out.

Sidereal Moon Sign Meanings 2021

This thread brought to you by Mars in Cancer still building an opposition to Saturn in Capricorn (sidereal) until July 1, 2021.

Mars in Cancer (sidereal) reflects a time when we set aside all other ambitions to focus on the most essential and necessary: our bodies. Not only food and shelter, but belonging, safety, and connection, too. These are worthy ambitions undermined and undervalued in capitalism.

Mars in Cancer (sidereal) marches towards an opposition with Saturn in Capricorn. That opposition perfects July 1, 2021.

Mars: Abilities, also Seperation
Saturn: Reality, also Covid-19

The Full Moon in Cancer is Coming…

The Full Moon in Cancer is coming, Thursday, January 28, 2021. Why am I telling you this now? Cause it’s gonna be ROUGH.

Here is the good news: You will have had 1 full year of Saturn in Capricorn by the time we get to that Full Moon. One full year of remembering that you are mortal. One full year of confronting the reality that YOU are the adult now.

The question is, have you approached this time with these things in mind? Have you confronted the fact that mommy and daddy can’t protect you from everything? …Can not, did not, will not.

And if you’ve looked to leaders in your community, nation, or family to be a good mommy or daddy…

Don’t get me wrong. YOU DESERVE to have your needs met, to be protected, to have your needs recognized. BUT! Have you embraced your ENTITLEMENT to have your needs met?

At your big age, how can you expect anyone—the government, your lover, your loved ones—to meet your needs when you are too ashamed to need?

3 of the 4 Cardinal signs will be occupied during the Full Moon in Cancer, January 28, 2021: Moon in Cancer; Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, and the Sun in Capricorn; Mars in Aries. That’s all of those red lines in this chart. Those red lines = power struggles, conflict, confrontation.

In our personal lives and in our communal lives, the Full Moon in Cancer (Jan 28, 2021) brings into focus:

Indulgence – Attunement – Addiction
Neglect – Resourcefulness – Repression
Abandonment – Courage – Recklessness

Addiction and Repression are two sides of the same coin: How does one learn to regulate a mind-body whose needs were never acknowledged?

Recklessness: The adults weren’t/couldn’t adult, so do you know where the limits are when you were expected to find them on your own?

Libra is missing from this Cardinal party. That means we will be looking to what Libra represents as a solution: objective agreed upon principles that help us know what to do in any given situation. That’s law and legislation.

Also, the pressure is on Libra + what it represents.

Last thing… don’t get caught up and sent off like ya’ll did last year. Tropical astrology had ya’ll ready for a Leo Full Moon party, but instead… you FELT that Full Moon in Cancer. Tell a friend!

Facing Reality

There are 5 squares between planets in Capricorn and Mars in Aries beginning the week of January 4, 2021 through February 19, 2021.

JANUARY
8 – Mercury SQUARE Mars
12 – Mars SQUARE Saturn
23 – Mars SQUARE Jupiter
FEBRUARY
1 – Sun SQUARE Mars
19 -Venus SQUARE Mars

Mars SQUARE Jupiter between January 12 and January 23 is the timeframe I’m most concerned about, especially 13th and 14th and the 20th and 21st. Moon entering Capricorn and Aries respectively. I see two possible scenarios playing out.

First scenario is that forces of insurrection maximize the tools on hand to marshal their forces and bring their goal to completion. Mars SQUARE Saturn is much more taciturn and stern in terms of how much the two planet interact. Saturn is not with the BS. But, Jupiter?

Saturn in Capricorn sees the Fire of Mars in Aries and is unmoved. Jupiter on the other hand adds gasoline to the Fire. And the idea of a violent clash that leads to much death and harm is very very possible during those dates I mentioned.

Based on each planet’s unique relationship to Aries, Saturn is the planet that can stop this. How? Actual physical barricades, covid, death, imprisonment, hospitalizations. Venus in Capricorn actually can, too. But, that square isn’t until mid February. That’s when I see more military and police cooperation against rebellious forces. Sun and Jupiter, unfortunately, are friendly to Aries so there is some cooperation there.

The 2nd scenario I see a possibility for is that there’s a concerted effort to quench forces of insurrection, or covid deaths + fallout overtakes everything else. The only reason I see this as a possibility is because Saturn in Capricorn will be in charge of every planet in the sky (except Mars) come February 11. As a matter of fact, this is the case once Venus enters Capricorn January 27.

Either way, it ain’t over yet!

One last piece: These squares also correlate to other things going on like lockdowns, work stoppages, grounding of planes and travel, closing of restaurants and other businesses. Mars is movement, period. And so when it is participating in all of the squares, there are many forces at play that inhibit or block to stop Mars movement, or to narrow its path of possible movement.

As I have repeatedly said, Mars in Aries is about doing some thing because you possess the ability or will to do it. It does not take into consideration external factors that impact the outcome or lead to consequences, negative or positive.

I do not think we are going to go back to the kinds of sheltering in place we saw back in March and April 2020. At that time Mars was in Capricorn with the Jupiter and Saturn. And so Mars really could not move at all. With that being said, Once the Sun enters Capricorn (January 13) it will be building towards its square with Mars in Aries. We must keep an eye on leadership and how it uses its influence and power to quench forces of rebellion as well as stop the spread of c0vid.
