Journey of the Soul--Evolutionary Astrology:Life Path readings that reveal your karmic necessities and evolutionary intentions

The Leo Lunar and Aquarius Solar Eclipses

Eclipse Season Winter 2018

"Whose ample bosom and encircling folds

The dire necessity of nature holds.

Ætherial, earthly, whose all-various frame

Azure and full of forms, no power can tame.

All-seeing Heav'n, progenitor of Time,

Forever blessed, deity sublime,

Propitious on a novel mystic shine,

And crown his wishes with a life divine.”

--Orphic Hymn to Heaven (Uranus)

The planet Uranus, which in some quarters is said to embody the blueprint of America’s destiny holds his torch high in the heavens at both the Leo Lunar Eclipse on January 31st, and the Aquarius Solar Eclipse on February 15th, 2018. No stranger to chaos and discord he, this profoundly forward thinking Promethean energy joys in interrupting our normal daily patterns with willful intention. Disruption is not the objective or the ends, but it is rather the means by which the acceleration of evolutionary growth occurs.


Eclipses occur across the axis of the Moon’s nodes, where the Moon’s orbit intersects with the  ecliptic, the  circle created by the Earth's orbit around the Sun. These 2 powerful energetic  crossroads mark the liminal time and space where the Moon and Earth weave their planetary frequencies in their diurnal motion. Through most of 2018, until early November, the lunar nodes will continue their default backwards motion through the zodiacal signs of Leo and Aquarius highlighting how we are inspired to self actualize and to unfold our unique personalities, each according to Soul intention, in the same  way that plants and trees extend themselves ever upwards, always leafing out towards towards the sunlight.

The Lunar Eclipse in Leo illuminates a new phase cycle of relationship that is unfolding with the New Year, as Venus and the Sun move into a new phase in their relationship in Aquarius--a relationship that began in Capricorn only 3 weeks earlier. A reboot or even a reformat of our emotional connections with others is taking place. A sense of emerging new  values and necessities precipitate new priorities initiating new ways of relating to others and ourselves. Powerful subterranean emotional memories from the past re-surface to intensify this vibrantly colored lunation characterized astronomically as both “blood” and “blue” more

"Up from Earth's Centre through the Seventh Gate rose,

And on the Throne of Saturn sate;

And many a Knot unravel'd by the Road;

But not the Master-knot of Human Fate."

--Omar Khayyam

Saturn, the Ringed Planet, alias the Lord of Karma has returned to his native home in the sign of Capricorn in 2018. If the natural zodiac is his birth chart then isn't this his Saturn return? Saturn corresponds to time and space and correlates to our perceived 3D reality. He is Gravity and the initializing force of involution, as Life Force comes into the Earth; Spirit is engraved into Time and Space. Saturn is the structure of consciousness. Everything in the cosmos is conscious. Like water, consciousness takes the form of whatever space it enters into--man, animal, plant, stone, or single-celled organism. We 'try on' different truths as we grow, and keep the ones that fit. As we change physical shape with age, our spiritual ‘shape’ shifts as well. Saturn patterns the cycles of aging, formatted by our values and their resultant priorities. The cycles of Saturn correlate to not just physical growth, but to Soul growth; the growth of consciousness.

The current transit of Pluto through the sign of Capricorn has upended the world, as we know it. Saturn will reinforce and support Pluto’s unfolding dynamic, as the God of the Underworld completes his transit through Saturn's sign, watermarked by their conjunction 2 years from now in January 2020.

As the year opens we find Saturn in close company with the Sun, Venus, and Pluto. The quality of our incoming life force, the clarity of our perceived meaning, and the desire to evolve all carry the Time Lord’s substantial imprint. Saturn’s fated necessity begins with self-responsibility and ends with the acquisition of a new foundation of skills and mastery. The current transit of Pluto through the sign of Capricorn has upended the world, as we know it. Saturn will reinforce and support Pluto’s unfolding dynamic, as the God of the Underworld completes his transit through Saturn's sign, watermarked by their conjunction 2 years from now in January 2020. The grounded, initializing energy that Saturn brings to the equation will potentially seed new designs in the world around us. Pluto is currently conjunct the south node of Saturn; Saturn is the ruler of it’s own south node. Planetary nodes reveal the evolutionary axis of the particular planet just as the lunar nodes reveal the evolutionary axis of the Soul through its egocentric emotional body, the Moon. ...READ MORE
