your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be.
Now put the foundations under them.

Dec.18 – NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS (26:31 of Sagittarius)

The differences between Sagittarius and Capricorn are remarkable. Sagittarius is ruled by expansive Jupiter, which just changed signs into Scorpio. Capricorn is ruled by restrictive Saturn, which is about to move into that same sign.

Sagittarius and Jupiter are known for being visionary, idealistic, focused on the far-off possibilities, and exploring the meaning of life. Capricorn and Saturn are known for being practical, realistic, nailing down the facts, and separating out what is actually known from what is just possible.

They are as different as chalk and cheese. Yet, they are also next-door neighbours in the zodiac. Doesn't that count for something? Well, yes and no...

They do have certain things in common. However, as with any pair of adjacent signs, they may share certain things in common but want to take them in very different directions.

Both are concerned with society more than the individual.

Sagittarius and Capricorn

Both have a vision of the Big Picture, but see it through different lenses. Sagittarius sees a world full of spiritual potential (for want of a better term; non-physical, conceptual, moral, knowledgeable, insightful). Capricorn on the other hand sees a world full of material potential (structured, what can be built and developed from the building blocks that are already there).

Both are focused on finding the optimal ways to live one's life – Sagittarius through religion, philosophy and law; Capricorn through governance, rules and the enforcement of laws.

And both signs place the individual within a context of something greater than themselves – Sag by expanding and stretching our vision of who we could become, and Cap by containing who we are within the structure of society and what our role is as functioning members of that society.

So, why talk about comparing Sagittarius and Capricorn? Because over the next few weeks, we're on a journey from one to the other.

Oh the feeling, when you're reeling
You step lightly thinking you're number one
Down to zero with a word, Leaving for another one
Now you walk with your feet back on the ground
Down to the ground, down to the ground
~ Joan Armatrading, Down to Zero

New Moon conjunct Saturn

The New Moon in Sagittarius is conjunct Saturn (3:15 applying orb). But as the Sun reaches out to complete the connection, Saturn steps into Capricorn (Dec.19).

By the time the Sun catches up to Saturn, they're both in Capricorn. Not only that, but their conjunction perfects just 4.5 hours after the Solstice (when the Sun moves into Capricorn). They conjoin in the first degree of Capricorn (0°11') on Dec.21 – right on the world axis.

Happy Solstice!

...Or not. It's possible that all that Saturnian energy could bring the festive holiday spirit down to earth a bit more than you would like.

In any case, there's a lot of energy moving out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn right now. And that means it's a good idea to get a better sense of what that transition means.

Saturn has been traveling through Sagittarius since December 2014 (with a brief backtrack into Scorpio in Jun-Sep 2015). The planet of do's and don't's (Saturn) has been wrapped in the sign of faith, idealism and belief (Sagittarius).

During this time, there has been increasing pressure for leaders to use a stringent set of rules that would apply and enforce certain ideologies, moral values and standards. We've seen this on "both sides of the aisle" politically (with very different ideas of what that would and should look like, of course).

There has also been an growing call for institutions and governments to adopt a more visionary, effective, long-term approach to the world's problems and collective direction. Mounting concerns about climate change and pollution, and finding sustainable sources of energy without damaging our home planet, are examples. (And I expect this theme will get a lot more attention when Uranus moves into Taurus next year.)

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.
~ Steve Jobs

As Saturn moves into Capricorn (December 2017 until March 2020), we are challenged—collectively and personally—to take our vision of what could be and find ways to make that happen in concrete ways. We are also likely to encounter the results, consequences and reality of what we had envisioned, learning what truly works and what doesn't. We will find out what the manifestation process will demand of us.

Sagittarius aspirations lead to Capricorn proposals, Sagittarian inspiration becomes Capricorn's proclamation, and Sagittarian ideals can manifest as regulations in Capricorn. From Sag to Cap, we go from an invigorating Fire sign to a serious Earth sign. Moving from the optimism, inspiration and idealism of Sagittarius into the seriousness, hard work and level-headedness of Capricorn could feel a bit like you've landed on the ground with a thud after leaping through the sunlit sky.

In Sagittarius we get to have fun exploring possibilities, ideas, options and what-ifs. It's open-ended and full of hope. But in Capricorn we need to narrow down the possibilities and choose just one or two things to develop into something real. When the possibilities are endless it's exciting, heady stuff, but when the options become limited, that energy needs to be channelled into ambition and hard work, or else we may wind up feeling disappointed or depressed.

But Saturn's sign isn't always the bad guy. In Sag we may have sometimes felt like life was all promise and no payoff. Or, that despite giving ourselves over to the inspiration, the changes we hoped for didn't materialize.

Therefore, moving into Cap could feel like something is finally changing. The hard work required in Capricorn might not be as thrilling and upbeat as our Sagittarius vision, but the rewards are bound to be much more substantial, enduring and reliable.

That perhaps is your task—to find the relation between things that seem incompatible yet have a mysterious affinity, to absorb every experience that comes your way fearlessly and saturate it completely...
~ Virginia Woolf

So how does Sagittarius potential suddenly transform into Capricorn substance? Here's an analogy that might help.

You can dissolve more sugar or salt in hot water than cold. So, it's possible to make a supersaturated solution by boiling the sugar or salt water and then letting it cool to room temperature. This is like cramming your life full of Sagittarian potential.

To push it into a Capricorn state, we want it to become solid—in this case, through crystallization. So, when you have a cooled supersaturated solution, all that's needed to trigger the crystallization process is a tiny piece of crystal, or seed crystal . This is magical to watch! (See video.)

Dropping a seed crystal/action into a vat of amassed potential means choosing which of the many possibilities you will focus on and develop. If you have accumulated enough potential, intention, motivation, vision, faith and understanding of what you want to create, the act of applying a new action can trigger a process in which it all starts to come together. But without adequate preparation, it's unlikely to produce as impressive results.

We're also going from a Fire sign, Sag, into an Earth sign, Cap. This could feel deliciously like diving into a cool lake on a hot day. Or, it might feel more like taking a cold shower, in which case you might tend to feel a bit down or disappointed by the energy shift; distressed by the loss of inspirational heat.

But there is a saving grace! There's another thing that happens in chemistry when crystals form—they heat back up again! So, although the crystallization process requires a cooling down, the formation of the crystals generates new heat. (In fact, this is how most chemical hot packs work.)

In the same way, we need to be cool, calm and collected when we take that first step to create something new. You can be driven by excitement, but before you sign that contract and commit yourself, you'd better have both feet on the ground ...or you might find you don't get the results you're aiming for. Just like heat-generating crystals, the satisfaction and gratification you get from seeing your ambitions take shape can generate a warming feedback loop that keeps you motivated and moving.

In this lifetime we are like Superman who must remain disguised as the nerdy newspaper journalist Clark Kent, or Harry Potter and his friends who are not allowed to do magic while they are on holiday, away from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry... but even Harry Potter and Clark Kent get to tap into their ‘special powers’ once in a while, especially when the going gets tough.
~ Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide to Your True Destiny

However, as much as we are now in the gravity of moving into Capricorn, we're not quite there yet at the New Moon in Sagittarius. Saturn is still in Sagittarius. So are the Sun and Moon as well as Venus and Mercury. In fact, this Stellium ("What's a Stellium?") packs a surprising amount of Sagittarius saturation, considering we're getting ready to vacate that sign.

Stellium in Sagittarius

Therefore, this could be a last chance to fill our intentions full of as much Sagittarian potential, inspiration and vision as we can muster. Think of it like making some extra charitable donations at the end of the year to offset your earnings at tax time. Or grabbing one more discount in the end-of-the-year sales before they're gone.

(And yes, you can save a bundle on Astrology Reports before the end of 2017!)

So, ideally on the day of the New Moon in Sagittarius, take some time to formulate extra clear intentions about what you want to build in your life over the next 2½ years. Bring your dreams and plans into sharp focus. Think about what you want to achieve and what that will look like, sound like, feel like. Picture the path laid out in front of you, and see each stepping stone that will take you from here to there. Try to be specific enough that you can see your path as clearly as possible, but leave the Universe some wiggle room to adapt the shape and direction of your crystallized vision.

With her foot on the threshold she waited a moment longer in a scene which was vanishing even as she looked, and then, as she moved and took Minta's arm and left the room, it changed, it shaped itself differently; it had become, she knew, giving one last look at it over her shoulder, already the past.
~ Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

At the New Moon, Saturn is in the final degree of Sagittarius, which is a Critical Degree and an especially tricky one at that. The last degree of a sign tends to be unstable and a bit unpredictable. A planet at 29° is no longer fully embedded in the sign it's leaving, but it's not in the sign where it's going yet, either. It's in mid-stride.

Descending spiral staircase

We may feel the pull of a new sign when a transiting planet is in the final degree, and sometimes we see events that have more to do with that next sign. A recent and noteworthy example: Jupiter went into Scorpio on Oct.10 and since then we have seen the #MeToo movement which has revealed the widespread phenomenon of sexual harassment and abuse toward women. This surge started with the scandal about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein—and yet, the explosion began on Oct.05 when Jupiter was about to enter 29° of Libra.

Another 29-degree experience can bring out a reluctance to move forward, so we may feel like we're being dragged kicking and screaming into a change when we would prefer to stay back where it's familiar. Or, alternatively, we might simply feel like we're in limbo—no longer where we were and not yet where we will be. This can be both a magical and frustrating experience, where we may have little choice but to surrender to the transition while our instincts long to dig in our heels to either put the brakes on or get moving.

The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior
crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.
~ Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

So, we have Saturn in the last degree of Sag, the New Moon in that sign, Mercury still retrograde in the same sign, and Venus sashaying through there too. Did we forget anybody? Yes: The Sun and Moon are conjunct the Galactic Centre (27:05 of Sagittarius), which amplifies the significance and importance of the New Moon's energy, and may add an aura of transpersonal potential. And Mercury is conjunct something called the Great Attractor (14:08 Sagittarius; thought to be a group of galaxies that produce massive gravity). Like the GC, the GA is likely to amplify Mercury's astrological effects over the next week or two, again introducing an aura of cosmic context.

To add to the fun, Uranus is in trine aspect (120°) to Venus, Sun, Moon and Saturn. This can add some cosmic bling to your vision of what you want to manifest in Capricorn. Want to manifest a new career direction? Let Uranus show you unexpected benefits of where that new direction could lead you. Want to become more financially stable or a better relationship with your body? Imagine the liberation and release you will feel by being more disciplined and gaining the results you want. Want to feel a more inspired connection to the Universe? Tell yourself a story in which you are carrying out everyday tasks, actions, attitudes and rituals that demonstrate what you want to achieve.

This planetary mosaic urges you to stoke your spiritual fire one last time before it begins the cooling-off process in Capricorn manifestation. Using the crystallization analogy, this is your chance to add a little more sugar or salt to the mixture before it cools, and to think about where in your life you want to drop little seeds of intention that can blossom into something magically real.

As the Sagittarius planets move into Capricorn and conjoin Saturn, each will drop a seed crystal into your supersaturated mix of passion, vision and quest for truth and wisdom. The Sun (Dec.21) gives you a chance to solidify your sense of purpose and identity. Venus (Dec.25) invites you to commit to a life that's consistent with your values and what you love to do. And Mercury (Jan.13) will ask you to clear your mind of clutter and focus your intentions into well-defined thoughts, so that if you get distracted or confused, you can find your way back to clarity again.

wreathThis is the last lunation we have before 2018 arrives. Where did the year go??? The Full Moon in Cancer is on New Year's Day in the Americas, and January 2nd anywhere east of the Atlantic Ocean.

Dec.19 – Saturn enters Capricorn (until Mar.21.2020)  (Dec.20 in AST, NST, UK, AU)

Saturn is very strong while in Capricorn because it is that sign's planetary ruler. Saturn, the planet of structure, planning, goals and manifestation, is in its own sign so all of its qualities are emphasized. This is a time when you could reap what you have sown, whether that is rewards for hard work and good planning, or consequences related to poor judgment or insufficient "elbow grease." It's also a good time to lay out plans for what to do next, as a continuation from whatever occurs while Saturn is in Capricorn. You may have to take on additional responsibility, be put in a position of authority, or you might have to deal with someone else in a role of authority. In any of these possibilities, if you tend to have "authority issues" this could prove to be a difficult time. However, it can also give you a chance to try responding in different ways, or to understand better why authority is such a sensitive area for you.

Life could feel a bit serious and heavy under Saturn in Capricorn. If you have a tendency to depression or low energy, this could aggravate it somewhat. It's not usually a time for kicking up your heels and dancing for joy, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun or be happy. Things will usually work better if you get your work done first. Don't be too hard on yourself, but it will help to do your best to avoid procrastinating too much. Progress is likely to be slow but steady, especially if you keep working at whatever needs to be done. To keep your spirits up and support your resolve, celebrate your small victories and acknowledge the small steps you make along the path. If others are helping you or doing work for you, be sure you give them a pat on the back and appreciate their efforts too. Take it one step at a time.

Saturn is in Capricorn from 1900-1903, 1929-1932, 1959-1962, 1988-1991, 2017-2020 and 2047-2050.

Dec.20 – Venus square Chiron (24:25 of Sagittarius/Pisces)  (Dec.21 in AU)

You may be forced to make adjustments to relationships and/or finances now, as you face situations in these areas that just don't want to balance out the way you want them to. You may feel a bit like you're in a catch-22 (no-win situation), where the more you try to find balance and harmony, the more you feel like you're chasing your own tail around in circles. This is a time when healing in relationships and financial problems may be difficult to obtain. Harmony in these areas can seem impossible or blocked, yet it is still necessary to keep trying. By trying anyway, it may be possible to find a solution that meets your needs, even if it may not be what you wanted, hoped for or expected. Strive to find a creative solution that draws on your best side.

Dec.20 – Venus trine Uranus (24:38 of Sagittarius/Aries)  (Dec.21 in AU)

Spontaneity and liberation burst into your relationships, finances, resources and pleasures. You might feel compelled to try something completely different that shakes up the "same-old-same-old" routines you're used to. The upside is that you have the opportunity to break free of some old habits and breathe some fresh air into your life. But the downside could come in the form of impulse spending beyond your budget, or recklessness in your interactions and relationships. Strive to break free of what holds you back from being your true self, without destroying the structure of order in your life.

Happy Solar Return to all Capricorns! And Happy Solstice and Happy Yule to all of us! When the Sun enters Capricorn each year, it marks the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere (longest night) and the Summer Solstice in the southern hemisphere (longest day). Yule is the traditional celebration of the December solstice in European-derived cultures, welcoming the start of the increasing light. While the Sun is in Capricorn, we have the opportunity to explore our connection to the earth (Capricorn being an Earth sign) in a physical way. Whether you are bundling up to survive a cold winter, or unwinding after the summer heat, or getting down to business as the landscape blooms in "downunder" summer splendour, there is something very manifest and substantial about the experience of Capricorn. This energy calls on us to get real in whatever we are doing – to bring structure, responsibility and discipline to whatever we do. It is a time to work on our "containment." Not in the sense of suppression, but in terms of defining the boundaries within which our growth can flourish down the road, and keeping our impulses from inconveniently spilling over the edges of those boundaries. Sometimes that means cutting back in certain areas in order to focus your energy and make room for new growth. Sometimes it means having to delay gratification and reward until you reach a certain point of progress. The Capricorn rule of thumb is: if you do whatever is necessary, the rewards will come.

Dec.21 – Venus goes Out of Bounds (from 25:39 of Sagittarius to 12:28 of Capricorn; OOB until Jan.03.2018)  (Dec.22 in AU)   ("What does Out of Bounds mean?"   "What is Declination?")

Venus goes Out of Bounds (OOB), which could affect your relationships, love life, finances, possessions and your sense of harmony, both within yourself and with the world around you. When it works well, you could gain unique or unusual insights and ideas about these areas, although getting these to work in the everyday world is something else again. When it's not working so well, those areas could become a problem due to unrealistic, outlandish or counterproductive attempts to push beyond familiar territory.

For example, you might become more adventurous, unconventional or undisciplined when it comes to friendships, amorous relationships or finances. If you have unspoken, unacknowledged or unconscious yearnings for "something different," this can be the time when those desires break free and make a run for it! This could be a positive thing, in that it gives your relationship or your wallet some breathing space and expands your range of experience. On the other hand, those yearnings could lead to upheavals and disruptions, like hastening the end of a relationship, or spending beyond your budget on something that turns out to be more whimsy than workable. This can be especially true if these areas are already struggling or hanging by a thread. It might help to get a reality check from someone you trust, or at least have your eyes wide open as you embark on your flight of fancy.

Dec.21 – Sun conjunct Saturn (00:11 of Capricorn)  (Dec.22 in AU)

For a few days before and after this date, you may feel serious, studious, stuck, blocked, committed and/or hard working. It could be a good time to manifest well prepared plans, or you might have to get real and deal with difficult realities in new ways. You may have business with authority figures, or you might be called upon to act in a leadership role. It can also be a time to own your own authority – that is, to BE the authority figure, either to someone else or just to yourself. It might be a time of decision, when you have to choose one path or option over another. This can feel like an ending, as much as it is a new beginning, because selecting one possibility means you must let go of the other possibilities (at least for now). This is a necessary part of the process of manifestation and maturity. Doing closure on the people and situations that are passing out of your life will help to complete the process of growth and learning they have brought into your life, and can help clear the space for something new to begin growing in their place.

Dec.22 – Mercury Stationary Direct (13:00 of Sagittarius; Direct until Mar.22.2018)  (Dec.22 in UK, AU)  ("What's a Station?"  "What does Retrograde mean?"  Read more about Mercury Retrograde.  Read more about Retrograde planets.)

Mercury finally turns direct! Yippeeee!!!! ;-) But we're not out of the woods just yet. For up to a week before and after today, you may experience mental intensity, confusion, and miscommunications or simply changes in your outlook. After being Retrograde for the last 3 to 3½ weeks, Mercury is now taking a slow turn to resume Direct motion. This period has challenged you to rethink and rehash things that required some fine-tuning or revision. The Direct station can be a time when clearer decisions start to emerge from the issues and struggles you've encountered during the retrograde period. Or, it might turn your perspective around so that you're seeing your situation fresh again.

Over the next couple of weeks, while Mercury is still in the Shadow, your brain may feel a bit like it's gradually waking up after a deep sleep. During this time, you can gradually put into practice the learning and knowledge you've gained from your retrograde "dreams" and moonlight visions. It will take time to get fully back into sync with the Mercury direct energy. So, take it slow, one step at a time, and untangle yourself one strand at a time.

Here are the key dates of this Mercury cycle (for North American Eastern Time):

Dec.24 – Jupiter square North Lunar Node (15:41 of Scorpio/Leo)  (Dec.25 in AU)  ("What's a Lunar Node?")

What do you really believe in? Your principles and beliefs might be at odds with where you feel your life should be going right now—or you might find you can't seem to live your beliefs and principles in a way that you feel would carry you toward your higher life purpose. This might be a good time to examine your attitudes and opinions, to see if maybe they are pulling you off course. Do you really believe those opinions anymore? Do those attitudes really bring out the best in you now? There might be a better way of reaching for your best potential, but if you're resisting this then it might only seem to get in your way. This transit could be experienced as a crisis of faith (which might be in the religious sense, or more generally). You might need to question whether what you believe in is real anymore, but an even better question might be whether you need to revise what you believe in based on your experience. Do your beliefs even fit your perception of life anymore? Or maybe they need to be differently integrated into how you live your life now. It might be a time when you need to expand your understanding about where your life is going—it could be that your own confidence gets in the way when you believe you know where you should be going.

Alternatively, this transit could challenge you with a truth, perspective or different opinion that may need to be considered in order to allow you to grow. It's possible you are resisting a way of looking at something you disagree with, which actually has something to teach you. Or you might discover that by voicing your own opinions, biases or perspective, you might actually be encouraging or instigating others to respond with a point of view that you find distasteful or irrational. The point is: don't just write someone off as being wrong – you might have something valuable to learn from the encounter.

Dec.25 – Venus enters Capricorn (until Jan.17.2018)  (Dec.24 in HAST, AKST, PST, MST, CST)

Friendly, abundant Venus travels through serious, structured Capricorn, bringing out her grounded, material side. It may be time to make new plans and commitments for material or relationship goals. It can be a time to get serious and make some solid decisions about what works and what doesn't. It may help to organise and systemise the way you approach relationships, finances, resources and pleasure. An example of systemising pleasure is to schedule regular time to pamper yourself, or to make a point of doing the hard work that will pay off in pleasure later (like eating healthier food or working out more). Although this might seem a bit unromantic or uninspiring, you'll find that laying the groundwork for what you want to attract into your life will provide support for the rewards to come.

Dec.25 – Venus conjunct Saturn (00:39 of Capricorn)  (Dec.26 in AU)

The serious structure and responsibility of Saturn combines with the desire for pleasure, beauty and material abundance in Venus. This can be a good time to make concrete plans about financial matters (e.g., investments, budgeting, purchases, etc.), although this will work best if you do some serious research first, rather than simply going for whatever seems to "feel good." This is a time to begin a process of commitment, whether that involves developing your resources to achieve a certain goal, or negotiating the terms of a relationship or partnership. However, in order to clear the way for new commitments to flourish down the road, sometimes old commitments must be brought to a close first. So this may also be a time when previous involvements or plans may come to an end, especially if they no longer fulfil your needs or lack enough potential to reach your desired goals. In a similar way, you might find yourself blocked from being able to move forward in the areas of relationships, finances or pleasures. These areas may require some reworking or reconsideration before you're ready to proceed.

Dec.28 – Mars trine Neptune (11:49 of Scorpio/Pisces)  (Dec.27 in HAST, AKST, PST, MST, CST)

This transit can bring a mystical, imaginative, compassionate aura to Mars' normally direct, fast, aggressive, self-focused energy. You may feel inspired to act on faith, confront with compassion, and react gently. On the other hand, it can be much easier to be motivated by something that turns out not to be what you thought it was. Much can depend on how impulsive your actions are and whether they are based on preplanning and research. We may tend to see our actions as righteous and justified. Creative energy is usually strong, whether this is used literally in the arts or in finding creative solutions to conflicts and problems. Our anger and aggression may be expressed in a way that is compassionate and intuitive, although our assertive edge might also be blunted a bit too much. It might help to think of the snake in the old parable – even if you choose not to bite if someone steps on your tail, it doesn't mean you can't hiss.

Dec.29 – Mercury trine North Lunar Node (15:35 of Sagittarius/Leo)  (Dec.28 in HAST, AKST, PST, MST)  ("What's a Lunar Node?")

Today, and up to a couple of days before and after, things can feel like they're starting to make sense. What you read, hear and observe may seem more obvious and your ability to put this into words could flow more easily. You might identify and figure out how to utilize the tools, skills, assets and ideas that could bring you further down the road toward whatever destination you're pointed toward. However, a reality check about how wise it might be to act on these ideas and benefits is still a good idea. Write down good ideas to follow up with later.
