Forecast for Tuesday, January 12th
Capricorn New Moon at 23°13′

ॐOracular Mantra—cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-changes are here for you now, whether you’re participating with them or not…

Zora Neale Hurston said that “there are years that ask questions and years the answer…” which kind of year is it for you?

This is a Saturnian question, and when it comes to Saturn—your feelings, either way, matter very little, if at all.

Last year on this day was the Saturn/Pluto conjunction at 22° Capricorn, the conjunction that hit it all off—our new normals, and this year entertains a separating conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius squaring toward an applying conjunction between Mars and Uranus in Taurus… and today’s new moon connects to Pluto by conjunction by one degree.

These heavily connections—both from the past and presently—are ruled by Saturn, and are thereby motivated by the presence of time, by the determined restructuring of foundational purpose, and controlled resistances, as well as through the passing of time, the structures of rewards and recognitions through projects and goals endured, and one’s inclinations for both self-control and liberating breakthroughs…

This isn’t a year to consider your feelings—it’s a year to honor who you are in your authenticity… contentment—and personal empowerment—through this process, is either already occurring, or it will follow.

❝We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.❞
——May Sarton

Saturn is now moving through Aquarius, and has been since Solstice, and so all of these issues are now asking you to take your own authorship and manifest your ideals through broadened ambitions. Saturn moving through Aquarius represents the expansion of possibilities available to you when you willfully choose to break through personal confrontations you’ve put upon yourself, toward issues with limitation, lack, inhibitions, and doubt, as well as those put upon you systemically or otherwise in this lifetime.

It is now time to begin building new structures of reality upon the foundations you’ve been preparing since 2019—new realities through which you can expand by way of your authentic hopes and dreams.

❝The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.❞
——Rainer Maria Rilke

It should not be overlooked, however, that as Neptune continues to apply its square to the Nodes—this influence can cause confusions and contortions of reality, especially if you’re struggling with your authenticity, your direction, or in supporting or securing your ideals… however, if you’re honestly aware of who you are then this could be a very inspired and spiritual time in your life.

Still, it cannot be ignored that this lunar event occurs one degree from Pluto, which very intensely suggests that the Saturnian dynamics—regardless of where Saturn is currently moving—underneath it all are intensified and working very hard through the extremes of the nth degree, especially after everything this degree represents…

Has everything you’ve experienced since this time last year been worth it for you?

Have you experienced the benefits of your intentioned decisions?

What have you gained?

What have you sacrificed?

❝Life is short only if you are not living your purpose.❞
——T.F. Hodge

Saturn, representing time itself, may be asking you now to go inward, and to seek respite. You may need to be alone for awhile, to reevaluate your feelings—especially if you have repressed any of them from seeing the light, from feeling a sense of liberation… out of fear, or apprehension, because you have yet to fully understand them—this is the time to learn, to explore your confusing or conflicting feelings to better understand them so that you might process them more appropriately, and empower yourself through facing these feelings honestly, and vulnerably… to surrender to your higher self.

These feelings you’re working to understand hold meaning, and spiritual value, and deserve to be acknowledged.

Should you be willing to acknowledge yourself at the most vulnerable and volatile levels you will very likely experience rewards—possibly even recognitions—and you’ll be somewhat silently and indirectly creating a space, much like your own Underworld, an Underworld that has been somewhat willfully illuminated… a space through which you can discover, explore, and honor your voice, your experiences, and… your seemingly fated realities.

Whatever is occurring, or underlying your circumstances—choices will need to be made.

❝Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.❞
—Carl Jung

Saturn, the ruler of today’s lunar event, will square Mars in Taurus exactly tomorrow at 3°, which associates itself quite dramatically to realizing the realities of one’s own environments through a much more forsaking awareness, especially in regard to societal structures that have become stifling and suffocating to the spirit within… you are no longer interested in maintaining other’s expectations, even societal expectations, if they are not bringing you joy or the potential for enlightened fulfillment among bluer than blue horizons.

Even if you choose to go your own way in some regard, ostracised or outcast in some capacity—it will eventually prove to be worth it.

Also, it is interesting to note that Mars is applying a conjunction to Uranus by square, to be exact January 20th at 6°44′, at the first quarter moon in Taurus… Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius, and this conjunction will begin unfolding and unraveling quite extremely from now and through the end of the month and into February, and the results of both reactions and responses to these unfoldings will continue to linger for some time… your abilities to manifest now, through these transitions, will birth entirely new possibilities of being—and further, underneath it all, the magic of these energies will (re)connect you with your higher self and with the heartbeat of the cosmos itself… with All That Is.

If you’re allowing.

❝Your only power… is to say yes or no.❞
——Vincent Cassel

This upcoming Mars/Uranus conjunction will likely surprise you—even if you’ve planned, prepared, and pinpointed particulars… perhaps especially so. It is also highly likely that new directions will take you should you not be willing to take them on yourself… and either way, may these new and daring directions be inspiring, invigorating, and interesting… and initiating—so brand new, in fact, that these new directions challenge you to see everything with fresh eyes and an eager focus.

Remember—wherever Uranus is transiting in your chart is where you’re being provoked to make changes, specifically to move you beyond your No Longer, and those changes can be easy, or challenging… the choice is endlessly yours.

This is a true opportunity for you to take authorship of your Not Yet—to expand your bluer than blue horizons as far as your imagination will inspire you… and beyond.

❝In the end it is the choice you make, and it doesn’t matter how hard it was to make it. What matters is that you do.❞
——Cassandra Clare
