The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for Wednesday 24 January 2018
The moon roars in Aries! With the moon in fierce Aries and the sun in territorial Capricorn, we are going to be all about our stake. Family, friends, coworkers, will find a tough champion in us!! With the moon in Aries we at our most daring and reckless, hedonistic and rebellious. We are also at our most anxious about what others think about our style. Not the time to combine purple and green with orange in the ensemble! Special care must be taken of the head and face, as these are at their most vulnerable at this transit. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get a face lift now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
A busy morning, when we find we get further ahead by going slower, being more careful, making less haste! We can avoid minor mishaps to the legs and muscles that way, too.
After lunch on the west coast, 3 50 PM eastern time, we find beauty and grace in the most amazing places, unexpectedly!! We may change our mind about some meaningful symbol that may dominate the workplace. This change may harken back to our traditions, and will avail in the most positive of ways!
Afternoon is slow, as we have been quite busy today! We may opt to take the time off or just proceed in a more relaxed manner. Our health is always a priority, and as winter is hardly over, we need fresh air!
Later still, 9 35 PM Pacific, we fall into a fit of self criticism. Let's count our blessings instead, and not just those we have received, but those we have given, too!
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the east coast will get the maximum benefit from this spiritual exercise.
Our dreams tonight will land us a vision of greatness!!!
This is a great year, a whole new ball game, Star Travelers!!
Talk about shaking off the blues!
The orb of communication and ideas, Mercury, shoots through the sign of the Celestial Archer, Sagittarius. We may notice that we speak in future tense, of what we want to do, what we plan to accomplish, and that for which we fervently hope.
This is a great time to investigate schooling, classes, higher education, and travel.
Mercurys journey through Sagittarius teaches us the art of speaking gracefully, and forgiving a great deal of faux pas!
The phantom moon Vulcan scoots down the saddle of the conquering Horseman!
Get ready for a whole new outlook!!
Venus, the golden girl of the cosmos, is at the Top of the zodiac in sidereal Capricorn, still a bit eclipsed by the powerful rays of our mighty sun. This casts a practical shadow on our romantical notions, as Capricorn is more about commitment, loyalty, power through adversity. We can make the most of this sojourn by capitalizing on our earning capacity, bettering our future through managing our selves now.
She will emerge from the sunbeams into Aquarius, another friendly but friends-only sign, on February 7 th. Not much for St. Valentines Day! We greet the spring with her inner grace, vast spiritual treasures, and rich splendor on March 3 rd when she is exalted in Pisces, our own special sign!
Fidgety Mars takes a quick journey through Scorpio, a sign he feels quite comfortable in stirring up, upsetting, blasting with sound and fury. Our best bet is hard physical exercise, which will benefit us in more than one way!
Mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now in Libra, enhances and expands all that is elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming. What a year we have ahead!
Maybe this isn't the time to go back to school...
Saturn is making a straight shot through Sagittarius, stalling our travel plans and putting a damper on our school credits. The dour schoolteacher of the cosmos, at his best, can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand. We have the next couple of years to study the laws by which we live and measure them against the Laws by which we really live. If there is a discrepancy, now is the time to address such issues. Schooling and study itself will come under scrutiny and some fire. Test the tester!! We will find travel restrictions are nothing new and hard as iron now, and we need to seriously consider the need for borders. Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching.
All the fuss is about just that, fuss.
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, basks in Pisces, our own special sign, turning up old surprises. If we watch the news we know the news!! The blue green orb reigns at the 29 th karmic degree in the karmic sign so let's be careful of what comes blasting up from the depths! On the 2 nd of February he will dither on the 0 degree of Aries. Then as spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids. Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action. Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers! This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Fussy and fuzzy too!
Neptune, orb of inspiration and music, bouys in Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation. We wisely recognize that this is of another world, of art, sensational music, beauty of a spiritual nature.
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there. Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker. Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality. As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
Pluto will engage with the sun and with Venus on the 9 th of January 2018 in a powerful embrace which is bound to change feelings, values, and core beliefs, bringing to the surface all that is rotten and obstructive to be lanced, cleansed, purified, and healed. This may be a painful process but not likely violent, especially if we do not fight it, but go with the tides of heaven.
There are no planets retrograde as we spring through the new year!!!
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, balances in Libra.
Our spousal planette Juno rises through traditional Capricorn at the top of the zodiac. She is all about family now! life. Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed.
can be fixed if we want to take the time to go back and work on our inner emotional issues. With the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde in Pisces now, real success is possible when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Our social interchange
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, jumps the hoop in Aries big time! She uses this as a launch pad for making new friends and annoying old ones.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, resets everything at Home in Cancer, where she reconfigures, revitalizes, revisualizes, and revamps our kitchen, redecorates, and invites the whole neighborhood to her board.
This marks the 1 st complete lunation for this year.
Yikes, Watch Out, It's January!!!!
Happy Birthday Capricorn!!
The first month of the new year features the darkest of winter nights as a backdrop for the most stars! The sun rises now at the Top of the zodiac, sidereal Capricorn, the dying goat springing up anew as a dolphin.
We star gazers, readers of Gods word written in the heavens, know the names of the stars of Capricorn as The Kids, Sacrifice, Station of Bearing, and the Place of Birth.
As our daystar traverses the transforming sign of a sea goat, a hardy full- blooded sign, we see by a light cold and clear as ice that which is no longer valid in the world and in our lives. We notice many issues just dying and falling away, collapsing into the vast sea of transformation. The Sea Goat makes no sense to us in our waking life, as goats don't live in the sea, or ride the waves, while fish don't usually rise up from the bottom.
The goat half of the sign is falling in death, while the fish half of him rises in excited life!! We have the opportunity to appreciate the beauty, vastness, and unique position of our pale blue home! We, like the sign, can allow what no longer lives within us with spark and vitality to fall peacefully away into the vast oceans of transformative energies around us, and allow the thriving new life to flow upwards! Our connection to our family circle, our traditions and blood ties are intensely important to us now. Our ethics and our roots become vital and rise with us, along with the best of our identity, our posterity!!
Aquila, the Falling Eagle, forms the backdrop for todays sunrise. This majestic bird was awarded with starry immortality for accurate discernment coupled with outstanding loyalty. The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The Wounded, The Pierced, and The Lord Comes. Those people and relationships born under these stars constant, reliable, industrious, and persevering.
The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.

Indigo gives energy to the brow chakra and the pineal gland, physically, increasing sleep and dream activity, whilst helping to eliminate nightmares. It calms nerves whilst stimulating sight, smell and hearing senses. Ideal for meditation, intuition, and psychic abilities.
Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, the Capricorn knight knows The Lord as Judge, is protective of The Place of Birth, of The Kids of the flock.
