The New Moon on Sunday January 6th (AEST) is an important Solar Eclipse. It draws our attention to the need for a realistic and down-to-earth approach regarding the waves of disruption that have been taking place to the status quo of the world as we have known it over the last ten years.
This Capricorn Solar Eclipse represents the harbinger of the up-and-coming conjunction between Saturn and Pluto,
in early 2020.
Culminating near the Mid-Heaven of the Solar Eclipse chart is the eclipsing New Moon with Saturn closing in on its conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, which will be a major feature for 2020 and 2021, and one we can already feel as the powerful forces of demagogues and dictatorships, with their growing right-wing followers infiltrate what is left of democracies after the shifts of power which have been changing hands from communities and individuals to large corporations with their lobbyists and vested interests have been taking place especially in the last five years.
The oppressive corporate infrastructures are rendering many of us powerless in a world becoming increasingly automated and dehumanised.
‘Capricorn, the cardinal earth sign attributed to the Devil, represents manifestation and the attempt to scale peaks. As such, it is a very spiritual sign of the Earth Mother. But with the patriarchal competitive ideal, and the creation of a mountain of status, Capricorn’s ambition turns to physical gratification, power, and wealth. This winter earth sign represents the longest night of the year, Winter Solstice, and is known for its negativity. Without connection to what is spiritual, the human ego becomes immersed in the unreal; and since it pays attention to nothing else, the ego dismisses any other way of thinking as “unrealistic.” Just as the ego dominate the heart, the rational mind dominates the irrational, intuitive forces, and lives by the slogan, “if you can’t see it, you don’t have to believe it.”-‘

Those in some of the most powerful roles on the planet are in denial of the biggest threat to life on Earth we have any records of as a species. Climate Change. Everything is fine in their backyards, and they don’t want that view to be ruined by looking at the Science and very obvious extreme weather patterns as well as life-threatening changes already occurring for many of us.
And yet in amongst this seemingly impenetrable wall of self-deceit is the fragmentation of the old world with its systems falling apart in front of us. Uranus is still squaring the Nodal Axis, breaking up old programs and soul memories, allowing the possibility of awakening into the New World. We must trust that we are being shown the ugliness of a domain imploding, with all its power structures falling apart for the new to emerge out of it.
Uranus is also semi-square Chiron and quincunx Venus, changing and healing old relationship paradigms, and clearing new pathways for the Goddess (Venus) to manifest.
Mars and Chiron are conjunct the Ascendant, and square to Mercury, which brings motivation and action to this process of clearing and healing.
The possibility of dreaming in the Utopian world of Oneness, Peace, Spirituality, equity and justice is one we’ve already had glimpses of, and is also an energetic part of this Eclipse map with the square between Jupiter and Neptune.
The culminating stellium in Capricorn of Mercury, Saturn, Sun, Moon, Pluto with the South Node of the Nodal Axis reflects that a collective soul shift is in the works, and that we need to all take responsibility for how to enable a balanced and sustainable re-structuring (Saturn in Capricorn) to occur within the transformational forces of a revolution in progress for our very survival and continuing relationship to our home: Gaia or Mother Earth.
