We’re under the Light of Capricorn, the Light of Initiation. Capricorn is the 2nd of “two gates,” — Cancer (Gate into matter [womb]) and Capricorn (Gate back to Spirit). In Capricorn we’re unicorns (holy ones) on the mountaintop (high holy place of the Mind). At first in Capricorn we’re sea goats (makara, water/earth creatures), then mountain goats. Later, reaching the Capricorn mountaintop, under the Rising Sun, we become unicorns.
It’s been a long arduous journey from Aries to Capricorn. We’ve battled Ten Labors or Hercules (Aries to Capricorn), we were Arjuna, told by, Krishna, our teacher to choose between two forces (Libra), we experienced Mars/Scorpio’s Nine Tests. With one-pointed focus we rode over the plains of Sagittarius, eyes on the mountain peaks of Capricorn. We climbed the ladder/mountain of Capricorn. Now, on the mountaintop, we rest, absorbing the Light Supernal (Father’s Light). We decide never to leave this place of peace. Travelers, mystics, pilgrims, disciples, Initiates together immersed in the Father’s Love. Gradually, aware of cries arising from the valleys of Earth, the sounds of sorrowful and suffering humanity, we realize (when Sun enters Aquarius) we will leave the mountaintop, walk back down the mountain, re-enter the Gates of Cancer (masses of humanity) and serve in Aquarius (the next sign). For now we rest. While Mercury enters Aquarius.
Wednesday night the full moon rises over the mountaintop, meets with Capricorn’s rising Sun (the solar festival). We stand in meditation, absorbing the Light, reciting the mantram together that strengthens us. “Lost am I in Light Supernal. Yet on this Light I must turn my back.”
ARIES: You seek friends young at heart and intelligent of mind, with a strong Mercury (your Soul ruler) influence. You aspire to belong to groups that have a focus of communication and education. If not already, you might consider Masonry. You want to communicate openly, with trust and friendship, discussing many subjects without restrictions. You’re very aware of personal needs, of things domestic and the sacredness of family.
TAURUS: It’s important for you to write, to communicate, to do any type of art that represents your thoughts, feelings and wishes. You may have or seek out a father figure who is or has strong Virgo tendencies. You find it easy during this time to communicate with people in power, to be in touch with writers, artists and those who work in the field of communication. There’s something, perhaps many things, you wish to communicate. What is it that you need to say?
GEMINI: Mercury, your ruler is in your house of travel, higher education, professors, publishers, philosophy and philosophies. You may sense travel is your next destination, knowing people of other cultures, other religions and languages will help you learn. You want to be taught and inspired. You want to be taken away from daily life and create new realities. You want substantial and material actions that produce real results.
CANCER: You understand realities others can’t comprehend. You’re able to communicate with the unseen world. You can be secretive and not share sometimes. For your protection. It’s important to practice calmness, to not hold memories or grudges, to not gossip and to hold others’ secrets within your heart. You don’t miss much. You’re aware always of what’s occurring. You know quick actions don’t yield proper responses.
LEO: Communication is most important for you in relationships. Most don’t have the acute communication abilities you possess. You find so many falling short of your need for real contact and communication. Finding communication with other kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, sky, Earth, elements, etc.) easier than with humans, you value and understand each kingdom’s unique love and intelligence. Humans sometimes hurt each other.
VIRGO: Continual study and learning are necessary throughout your life. You can often feel overworked due to your perfectionist abilities. You value your work. Your eye for detail is extraordinary. You like adventurous activities involving physical activity. Staying current with new ideas, new ways of tending to daily life is basic, vital and actually essential to making you an excellent worker in any field that chooses you.
LIBRA: Your intelligence often calls you to read books, establish book clubs, do puzzles, initiate intellectual recreations and games with friends participating. You have the gift for teaching, for educating others, and the compassion for helping those in need. Over time, your slow and steady progress yields results that are practical, prosperous, valuable and long term. Career-wise you’re successful. In all things your task is to create harmony.
SCORPIO: It’s important to have a library or access to intelligent bookish resources because your mind is always seeking to understand life’s mysteries. You sometimes feel like a nomad, wondering if where you live is correct, always seeking to “go home.” That’s where your heart is. Even when living in paradise, “home” calls to you. You need lots of movement and communication from and with “home” these days. Someday wherever you are you’ll feel finally at home.
SAGITTARIUS: Your above average intelligence sometimes leaves you feeling lonely and alone, wishing there were people around who could keep up with your thought processes, your humor, your many and varied interests. This is why your sign often ends up as a writer, professor and/or publisher. Only through your own creativity do you meet your match. Only through these intelligent creative tasks is your restlessness eased. Sometimes not. Then you must look into the sky at night and find your stars.
CAPRICORN: You have a gift for know how to make money, how to garner resources and how to use them wisely. You want substantial and material results in whatever you do. The best way to assure of results is to tend to one’s garden. Here you can be practical in terms of food and feeding the family vital nutrients. It’s good to once again consider a greenhouse, for protection & safety. Just put plastic over you present garden. You’re practical and intelligent. You see the obvious needs, predicaments and the intelligent practical answers. Now you must apply them.
AQUARIUS: You look Mercurial – swift, lithe, quick as a wink in all situations. Here, there, everywhere and in a moment – you’re nowhere. You’re restless, changeable, nimble, distracted, versatile, at times brilliant, mischievous, lively, interesting and curious. At times people think you’re cold and distant. No, you’re just observing how to apply the future to the present. As forerunner.
PISCES: Sometimes it’s difficult to communicate what you see and sense for they are not what others see, sense or even know about. You have to turn inward trusting what you know often without encouragement or recognition. Do not overanalyze – what most of psychology does. The message (intuition) gets lost. Study symbols and images, the language of the Soul and intuition. Where you live.
