I don’t know about you, but the eclipse knocked me out, physically, mentally, and especially emotionally. I had to step away for a few days, and apologize for not letting you know ahead of time–even I didn’t know it was going to happen, and when it did it was all I could do to be in the same room with a computer, never mind actually writing something! And in reality, I think the eclipse cast such a long figurative shadow that we all needed to process, process, process–and I don’t think we’re done yet.
That Capricorn cluster of Ceres-Pluto-Saturn reverberates, and will for some time. Brace yourself, as it’s so pervasive, so domineering in terms of effect, that it’s likely to take multiple forms, and has the potential to ripple out for up to 6 months (through to the next eclipse set). It’s about both personal and large-scale Power expression, the impact that has (or the way we’re held back from making an impact) in real-world circumstances, and Mother Nature, from a micro to a macro level, undergoing serious change and flux. This will reveal itself in so many ways; fear may precede revelation with this energy, which implies that staying calm opens the door to understanding, and so to a useful inflow of information/ perception. On the 13th opportunity is available; look to what grabs your attention–that’s where the openings are.
As I write, Venus is poised to leap from Aquarius to Pisces–moving the relationship and financial tone from intellectual Air to immersive Water, the sign of this goddess’s exaltation–and that too may be feeding tension the 13th. Anticipate a ‘new lens’ slapped over relationships and finances, and so different feelings to surface. We’re likely to be both more intuitive in these areas, and also too easily overcome by any propensity for run-away imaginations.
By the 14th we’ll be challenged to stick to what we know is wise or practical, as we may be troubled by anything we’ve ignored or neglected. If we dwell in integrity, there’s nothing to fear, and the mind is aligned with instinct in a most beneficial way.
Both 14th and 15th we may find our Will, our actions, or our ego impulses slowed or stopped by external forces; this might be both a show of Power, cluing us in to who really has the reins, and to the ways in which creating the future we want may depend on us modifying our efforts now. Go after what you want, anyway; the serendipitous and the spontaneous carry benefits, and a show of spark may persuade others to put their money on you.
The 16th we see no new major aspects formed, but we do see both Mercury and Pallas in the stressful 29th degree (Merc in Capricorn, Pallas in Sagittarius), suggesting that communications and our own internal source of guidance and wisdom could be under pressure. Information and the ability to process in organized and specific ways could be constricted to a choke-point that could induce panic, and fear that we ‘just don’t know’, that we don’t have the smarts to process the facts or to take advantage of opportunities could be strong. It’s a matter of staying calm and balanced (Moon in Libra) and taking advantage of today’s forming Sun-Sedna trine, which offers illumination through listening to that still, small voice within, the one we know as instinct, the one that ‘knows but doesn’t know’–and yet does, if we can acknowledge the possibility that the mind isn’t the only conduit through which we can receive information. The real-world holds rewards, and today, they may be right in front of us.
Have a lovely week, my friends!

Alternating periods of creativity interspersed with reading, cooking, procrastinating and vegged out with The Witcher on Netflix. Several people I know were ‘under the weather’ a lot for many days. Lots of actual flooding…
Hi John! Yes! All the things! Very much the same here, with a sense of timelessness–plus flooding, and snow. I’m trying to rest, and keep my powder dry. 🙂

Good point on the timelessness – plus sort of weird as I think of all the planets in Capricorn – ignored the timekeeper. I didn’t pay much attention to the clock = being in the now. Shifted from Chronos time to Kairos time.
If needed, I suggest you hibernate as required… 🙂
That timelessness is odd, as you point out, with so much in Capricorn. That sounds nice, shifting into the Now 🙂 Will contemplate and probably take at least a cursory dip into hibernation.

Parallel experiences/sensations here. Happy you took the time you need — doubly happy to have you back 😊
Thank you for the confirmation, and the encouragement, Ana! Hope you are doing well 🙂
Thank you Julie – You are my Shero! I “feel” you – as my grandma would say, “that was a doozy!” Much Love! ❤
Lol! I use BOTH of those grandma expressions! Thank you. Much love to you, MyOwnShero!
I so relate. My affirmation or mantra at tha moment equally suddenly from left field is “Right here, right now. Adapt, adjust, align. I am not a robot.” and repeating it to myself as often as I feel prompted to. I offer this purely in case it helps inspire anyone to find similar words that make sense to their deeper sense of being, and remain on course. It is as if the currents of both oast and future are causing a metaphoric or figurative rip tide, and the current is strong and the undercurrent is stronger, so there is no point trying to fight against it and to try to stand firm and not be moved by it will simply be exhausting, like when this happens in the ocean, all one can do is be moved by it yet remain present as to our current “position” direction of the shore and try to encourage our movemwmt to remain parrallell to it as the opportunity presents while trying not to allow any “shadows” below to trigger oir mind into paranoia that its a shark or whale threatening to swallow us? Maybe it is, maybe it isnt. Either way all we can do is have some common sense and do our best to observe rather than try to look or hear something, because we are more likely to find what we know & fear, than what is becoming known, that has an equal potential to be what would we love into being, if we had the freedom of choice to express our free will in accordance with our higher self in the best possible way, without becoming condescending or self righteous, just a humble human being trying to the right thing and honour the blessing it was originally born to be? Our spirit can be quite ruthless when its way is blocked or restricted in goid timing and order to clear the individuals way, it is our personal responaibikity to ensure we wont let ourselves down and needlessly cause problems for others and we really do need to trust ourselves to know instinctively what ua best and have faith in the unknown to help us be in a better position to serve our purpose better, which of course is a very strong “Capricornian” stance. We may all be alone, but we are all together in that too. (From PS I love you). Hoping that nay help…we were not promised it would be easy, just worth it…
Hi Debbie! “I am not a robot” is always a good reminder, especially when we feel compelled to engage. Thank you, this is helpful. Love this: “We may all be alone, but we are all together in that too…we were not promised it would be easy, just worth it…” Have a wonderful week, Debbie!

Thank you, Julie for rallying your strength and giving us thid further guidance. Have Mercy, that was intense a couple of days as I have everspent recently and, as you predicted, centering around caregiving issues. I’m exhausted myownself. Take care,
Hi Nancy! You’re welcome! So sorry to hear the eclipse was hard on you, too–but we made it through! Rest, recover, care for yourself 🙂
All the best,
