Life is a series of transitions. We grow from young to old, climb from bottom to top, and circle back again to start another round. This month, as the Sun moves through Aquarius into Pisces, it signals that we have made it over three quarters of the way around the track and are headed for yet another finish line. Since the solstice of December 21st and through much of this month of January, the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars have made their passage through Capricorn and now into Aquarius. This is a special time of the year.
It is a time when we have been reflecting on the gains and the losses, the spreadsheets of our lives so to speak, and looking at the balance that remains. Capricorn is the culmination, the “highpoint” of the cycle begun last March with Aries. This has been a sober month, with practical concerns for financial/physical security at the forefront. Whether we have succeeded in reaching or goals or fallen short, it has been a time of Life giving us solid evidence as to which path will prosper and which will lead us nowhere. The good news is that we can now make definite choices based not upon whimsical fantasy but upon objective reality.

It is time, in a way, to leave our losses or take our gains and begin again to look forward to the future. Whatever this last cycle was about, it has maxed out and is waning. It is now time to liberate ourselves from the old forms, the old jobs, the old sources of security as they are on their way out. It is time to de-condition ourselves from past patterns and attitudes and break free like the fruit that has ripened and is ready now to eat. It is time to pull our heads out of the ground and get a breath of fresh air!
Capricorn through Pisces represents the last quarter of the cycle, and as such are the least personal and most social/collectively-driven of the signs. In this final phase, non-personal forces of spirit have the upper hand as we mature beyond our own Continue reading
