Sun Into Capricorn Edition



Hello Readers!

    Happy Winter Solstice & Holidays, Happy birthday Capricorn readers and welcome one and all.  We are at a watershed moment.  A very special new moon Capricorn stellium forms on the 21st (tomorrow for most of you), and two days later, on the 23rd, Saturn will change signs for the first time in over two years.  If you've been feeling like you're ready for big changes, the time to make them is here.  All of the details are in this month's article, so please enjoy this edition of the Oracle.  

What Will 2015 Bring You?
     With Saturn moving into Sagittarius on December 23rd, the seventh Uranus Pluto square on tap for mid March and Jupiter changing signs into careful Virgo in September, 2015 is set to bring in a wide range of new energies.  Your chart is the key to understanding how they will affect you personally, and a transit report tells you how the current and upcoming planetary movements interact with the planets in your unique birth chart.  So, from now until January 31, 2015, I am running this once-a-year special.  When you have a reading of 20 minutes or longer, you will receive a complimentary 13-month transit report along with a copy of your natal chart.  Why read a generic Sun sign forecast when you can have a comprehensive, customized report and a live personal consultation?  Email me to schedule your session and we’ll take a look ahead together.  Happy New Year!
From The Oracle


Carnelian clears negative thought patterns and restores your radiance, vitality, and enthusiasm to their optimal capacity.


Your spirit is coming back to life, and you are ready to live with great presence. Known for its motivational abilities, carnelian gets your blood flowing, clears mental cobwebs, and infuses your being with natural effervescence. Also known as the artist’s stone, carnelian also inspires courage, creativity, and clarity. Coupled with positive affirmations, this crystal restores and builds optimism, opens you up to new levels of awareness and inspiration, and helps you see the many blessings and opportunities that are available to you.


Charge it. Placing a piece of carnelian in your hand for this exercise is ideal, but holding an image of it in your mind also works. Begin at your base chakra, and working your way upward, charge each chakra. Allow this life-giving energy to flow into each of your seven energy centers until you feel your blood pumping. Repeat this exercise daily until you wake up excited about your life and all its wondrous possibilities.


I am enthusiastic about life and look forward to the gifts I receive each day.

Editor's Note:  There are a number of musicians, authors and creative people on the mailing list.  I wish you an especially inspired 2015 and Saturn through Sagittarius transit.  The power of the Taskmaster planet coupled with the magic of Sagittarius offers a golden opportunity to shine your light and to bring your dreams to fruition.  Rock it!!

Sun Into Capricorn 2014-15: Rational Exuberance
     As the Sun enters conservative Capricorn, a very special new moon stellium takes shape, Saturn prepares to change signs for the first time in over two years, and disruptive, rowdy Uranus comes out of retrograde.  Things get underway at 4:03 P.M. on December 21st when the Sun enters the Cardinal earth sign.  There it will meet up with Venus, Mercury and powerful Pluto.  Two hours later, a new Capricorn moon strengthens this stellium.  Themes of longevity, endurance and ambition are Capricorn’s hallmarks, so this is a five-star day to contemplate the year ahead and to make firm decisions, plans and commitments.  Ceremony is also a excellent choice on this very special new Winter Solstice moon.  What would you like to see happen most in the coming 365 days, personally and globally?  What about the next three years? 

     With Capricorn’s ruling planet Saturn set for a Sagittarius transit that will last until December 2017, the dawning Sun cycle will open negotiations between optimism and realism.  On December 23rd Saturn enters the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius.  With the brief exception of a retrograde back into Scorpio from June to September in 2015, Saturn will remain in Sag until December 19, 2017.  Where Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius is hopeful and expansive, sober Saturn is pragmatic and restrictive.  Sagittarius has high-minded ideals and dreams big, and Saturn imposes form and accountability.  Integrating these two forces won’t be easy.  With Saturn, nothing ever is, and that’s kind of the point.  The loftiest of aspirations require boots on the ground implementation.  Saturn provides the discipline and structure to manifest the visionary.
     The axiom “As above, so below” is a good one to keep in mind as we journey through this transit.  Under global Sag, it will be applied to our stated principles, philosophies and ideals, Sag’s turf.  If a cosmetics company says that it is against animal cruelty, but agrees to animal testing as a condition of doing business in China, it will be called out on it.   Correspondingly, once we know about the unsavory business practices of our favorite brands, our personal ethics will be tested.  If we say that we believe in clean oceans, we’ll continue to be confronted by data showing us how our use of plastics is clogging them up.  If we say that everyone deserves access to clean water, Saturn will challenge us to create real mechanisms for delivering it.  This cosmic imperative to quite literally “practice what we preach” will only strengthen in the coming three years.  It aligns strongly with the Uranus Pluto squares that conclude next March and the ongoing Pluto journey through institutional Capricorn, from 2008-2024.  Presently at twelve degrees, that transit is only now beginning to reach phase two in power and intensity.  Remember, The American Revolution arose under the previous Capricorn through Pluto transit of 1760-1778, with the battle at Lexington not taking place until Pluto reached 26 degrees.  Tensions steadily mounted for well over a decade as Pluto strengthened in the sign of government, systems and commerce.  As Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn will support Pluto’s honesty and resolve to reform.  Spirited, confident Sagittarius will provide, and fuel, the inspiration for change.        

     With Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo, Saturn in Sag places a major planetary player in every fire sign.  Together the three bodies form a loose Grand Fire Trine.  Fire represents the element of spirit, and as such is the motivation behind everything that comes into form.  This combination will be in place for the first six months of 2015, and a regular trine will be reignited between Saturn and Uranus in September.  Sagittarius correlates to 9th house issues such as long-distance travel, religion and higher education.  The last Saturn transit of Sag ended in late 1988, the year before the world wide web was invented.  This will be the first time we’ll experience Saturn in Sag with a grid for global connectivity and communication firmly in place.  This time revolutionary, electrifying Uranus is in audacious Aries.  Under this Saturn Uranus combo, messages and movements can spread like wildfire on the grid and on the ground.  Ideas like Heroic Imagination can be part of a substantive, sustainable solution.  By the end of 2015 the North Node and Jupiter will be in Virgo, the sign of daily routines, details, health and service.  This is a further call to fuse the micro into the macrocosm and the macro into the microcosm.  Now, under austere Capricorn skies, we begin walking our talk.
Need a last minute holiday gift?  How about giving the gift of a reading?  It's convenient, personal and always appreciated by the recipient.  And between now and December 24th, 2014, when you order a gift certificate, Santa will put a free ten minute reading into your stocking.  He's cool like that.  Just email me to purchase a gift certificate and to set up your free reading. 
     Curious about the astrological trends coming in for 2015?  Want to know when Mercury is going retrograde next year?  I have all the details and will be sharing them with Kristina Walsh and you on Surfing the Psychic Waves.  We are aiming to have this very special edition of her show up around New Year's Day, so please check our tweets and fb posts for the link.  Additionally, I'll be visiting Kristy Ayala throughout the new year to share monthly updates.  Heartfelt thanks to both of these amazing colleagues and friends, and thank you so much for supporting these broadcasts and for tuning in. 

     Thank you for a great year!  I cannot believe that it is already winding down.  I wish you a 2015 filled with love, happiness and every blessing you can possibly imagine, and a few more that your Angels want to surprise you with.  Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! 

With love,
