The challenging aspects Mercury forms this week indicate meaningful coincidences, breakdowns or breaktroughs in communication, weird situations, shift of views. They offer plenty of opportunities to experience trough synchronicities the archetype of Hermes as the messenger, the trickster and the psychopompos. The quality of these experiences depends on our level of awareness.
The „Next Step” Spread
The guidelines of the Tarot regarding the „next steps” indicated by the new moon in Capricorn of the 17th of January I’ve been using this very effective four card Tarot spread for more than 14 years. It gives useful insights regarding the priorities of the 28 days of the lunar cycle started with the new moon Generally speaking, new moons are favourable for new beginnings, while full moons are culminantion points, where the results of the processes started during the previous lunar cycle are emerging. The next full moon occurs on the 31th of January, while the new moon of the 15th of Februarymarks the beginning new lunar cycle.
The Jupiter – Pluto sextile, one of the key aspects of this year, became exact on the 15th of January. When the Fortuna Maior and Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld join their power, the treasuries of the universe open up. The result is in minimum a lottery jackpot – at least according to the Astrological cookbooks. In reality the situation is more subtle. Although this beneficial aspect of the two planets can be really helpful, substantial efforts are needed to take advantage of it.
The new moon of the 16th of January (in the United States. In Europe and in Australia on the 17th) occurs at the 26°54′ of Capricorn. New moons mark the beginnings of a 28 day cycle and they are also favourable for fresh starts, especially on the areas of life where they fall on your chart.With a stellium in the sign ( Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Pluto) the current one can be considered the peak of the Capricorn season.
With more than 25 years of experience with Tarot and Astrology behind I’m quite familial with the question: „Will I start a new relationship soon?” Many people want nothing less than a perfect relationship, (see related article: Finding a Happy-Enough Relationship) but they are very surprised when I return the question: „Are you a perfect partner yourself?”
Self-assertive attitude, fight for freedom or uncontrolled temper-tantrums ?
The Mars (Libra) – Uranus (Aries) opposition becomes exact on the 1st of December. This volatile transit is associated with sudden and unexpected events (very often related to partnerships and associations), temper tantrums, separations, accidents. The aspect is activated two days earlier, on the 29th of November, by the Eris, Moon, Uranus conjunction in Aries.
The Next Step
The guidelines of the Tarot regarding the „next steps” indicated by the new moon in Libra. I’ve been using this very effective four card Tarot spread for more 14 years. It gives useful insights regarding the priorities of the 28 days of the lunar cycle started with the new moon.(This time on the 19th of October). New moons are favourable for new beginnings, while full moons are culminantion points of the lunar cycle. At full moons the results of the processes started at new moons are emerging. The next full moon occurs on the 4th of November, while the new moon of the 18th of November marks the beginning new lunar cycle.
The new moon of the 19th of October occurs on the 26°35 of Libra. While new moons mark the beginnig of a new 28 day cycle, the air sign of Libra is the sign of relationships, partnerships, beauty, fairness, and balance. Uranus opposing the new moon is the dominant aspect of the chart, indicating unexpected turns reagrding these matters throughout the 28-day lunar cycle. The events of the next (and the previous) 2 – 3 days may be abundant of synchronicity (meaningful coincidences) giving hints about the possible developements.
The natal chart can be regarded as the map of our life. It gives an insight in our personality,orientation, drive, and patterns of behaviour, ways of self expression lifestyle, activity, etc. Thus a mature approach to our natal chart helps us to develope effectively our innate potentials.By understanding the blueprint of our life, we can modify a number of factors previously considered “unchangeable”, which brings significant breakthroughs and improvements.
I was attracted to the world of mistery, dreams, mythology and tales since my early childhood. However I didn’t want to become a spiritual advisor. I started studying Astrology, Tarot and Jungian Psychology in my early twenties to find answers to my own questions. I completed a four-year program of Baktay Ervin Institute of Astrology , Budapest) and graduated as an astrologer in 1997. By the end of my studies, I realised that it was one of the best investments of my life.
