2019 Astrology: Fall into Winter

2019 Astrology: Fall into Winter 1427 1070 webmaster

As always, the insights and views expressed in this blog are my own interpretations and opinions — you’re welcome to consider or disregard them, along with any suggestions offered, as you see fit. Thank you for visiting!

Please note: I offer astrology chart readings in private, individual sessions only.

For full description of EVENT SERVICES, psychic tarot card readings, please visit my home page or previous blog post: Why feature psychic readings at your next event.

What’s cooking in the cosmos during the last quarter of 2019?

A powerful new Moon on Sunday 10/27/19 – Breakdowns might precede breakthroughs with this new lunar cycle.  Both unpredictable Uranus and potent Pluto are involved with this new Moon, which could very well correlate with major change and shake ups of the status quo. Additionally this Fall, moving forward could first require tending to, fixing up, repairing, and preparing for, as…

The year’s final Mercury retrograde begins on 10/31/19 and lasts thru 11/20/19. I suggest backing up data a few days prior. For videos on Mercury retrograde and its effects, see https://www.theresemurphy.com/private-psychic-readings/

Massive Jupiter completes its 12 month passage through its home sign of Sagittarius, and for the first time in 12 years, moves into the sign of Capricorn on December 2, 2019. For the next twelve months, buoyant, optimistic Jupiter travels through much more restrained, realistic terrain inviting us to get real and choose which of our long term goals we can/will commit to. Jupiter joins serious Saturn and potent Pluto, already hanging out in the pragmatic, strategic realm of the mountain goat.

Note: Throughout this Fall, Saturn and Pluto will move closer to their exact conjunction in the same degree of Capricorn on January 12, 2020.  Their last conjunction was 34 years ago — and their last conjunction in Capricorn occurred in 1518!

Everyone has 22 degrees of Capricorn somewhere in their natal chart! And, people with planetary placements near 22 degrees of any cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra   or Capricorn) could feel especially challenged/awakened by this energetic signature.

More information about Saturn, Uranus and Pluto in earth signs and discussion of Jupiter’s symbolism: https://www.theresemurphy.com/astrology-discussion-series-resumed-2018/ Videos from recent astrology discussions are relevant in 2019 and 2020.

When Jupiter moves through Capricorn, it also moves from a challenging square relationship with outer-planet Neptune into a more supportive sextile relationship with Neptune which is moving through ITS  home sign of  Pisces. Theoretically at least, this harmonious relationship between Jupiter and Neptune, could make it easier to accurately assess the viability of our highest ideals, creative talents, and spiritual identities and then open the possibilities to do something about those options that fit. However, with sextile energy, we are required to step up and supply effort to engage with those opportunities. Among other things, this planetary relationship calls us to do the work of our inner artist and dreamer and to embrace responsibility for our life purpose.

At times, this much sobering Capricorn energy could feel like a buzz-kill and could stir up resistance to the hard-work ahead, but the opportunity of these times is to apply ourselves with discipline, care, and dedication to the work of our souls.

Positively, Capricorn energy can also increase: desires for mastery and the willingness to work for it; distaste for excess and waste; awareness of consequences; genuine dignity and integrity; as well as willingness to step up as responsible elders in the community to help guide younger generations.  Capricorn energy can also help to clarify standards of accountability.

Negatively, dysfunctional Capricorn energy can express as obsession with results and disregard for process, aka the ends justify the means.  Not all shrewd strategies are worth pursuing and progress at any cost will not be sustainable. Harsh attitudes, cold-heartedness, isolation and extreme efforts to control, provide wake-up calls to indicate when Capricorn energies have gone into over-drive.

The year also ends with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn! on Christmas night in central and pacific time zones.  The eclipse features the Sun, Moon and south node joining Jupiter, with Saturn and Pluto nearby.

Yes, indeed, there’s a lot going on astrologically and these events correspond with major themes that resonate for each of us in some area of our charts and our lives in 2019 and 2020. Since the planetary movements in our solar system reflect our own human evolution back to us – think about looking in a giant cosmic mirror! – these energies are worth knowing about. 

How can you hear more about these energies and what they mean for you individually? Email Therese@theresemurphy.com to schedule your appointment for a private reading.

As a metaphysical astrologer and evolutionary intuitive, my calling and interest has always been to help awaken an inspired understanding of the higher spiritual potentials and creative opportunities inherent in our lives at any given time, and astrology is one of my tools for doing this. This is why we gather for astrology discussions – to consciously engage with the interesting, joyful and sometimes challenging work of our souls.

In your private reading or at a Talk, we’ll look at the amazing and powerful expressing and the major themes of the Now and how these energies and themes relate to YOU so you can connect to CO-CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT.

Stay tuned for more information about our next Astrology Talk in January, 2020.

At each Astrology Talk, attendees also receive specially crafted “soul homework” designed to help awaken the inner guidance and wisdom from your heart-mind, in concert with cosmic currents.

Do I need to know astrology to attend Therese’s talks or watch videos?

You don’t need to know anything about astrology to attend or to watch the videos.  Simply allow astrology terms to wash over you, since I provide plenty of English language words to support and develop those terms.

Therese describes enough of the mechanics of the planetary movements to provide a basic understanding of what’s occurring in the sky without getting bogged down in too many details or straying too far into astro-mythological stories that aren’t pertinent to your life.

What’s your approach, when you give a reading or a talk?

My goals are to be informative, affirming, enlightening and inspiring. Although astrology and tarot can be complex, symbolic, language-systems with myriad ways of measuring and considering information, I’ve discovered a genuine passion and ability for making their messages accessible. By embracing what is both magical and practical about the energy in the reading, I zero in on salient themes of a given cycle and offer valuable insights for people to consider.

What’s cooking in the cosmos during the second half of 2019?

This year’s Summer Solstice chart contains an action packed description of the major themes expressing for all of us for the second half of 2019!

Jupiter continues moving through its home sign of Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years, and rises in the East ahead of the rest of the planets each day, while also continuing its challenging relationship with outer-planet Neptune — moving through ITS  home sign of  Pisces;  the north node of the Moon, a key indicator for the evolution of the soul, continues through the sign of Cancer for the first time in 18 years, an energy which is emphasized and related to the 3 remaining eclipses this year; there are 2 more Mercury retrogrades in water signs with the next one officially starting on July 7th; and Mars, also moving through the sign of Cancer, comes back from its 8 week journey “out of bounds” and will pass through Leo this summer on its way to connect with its cosmic lover, Venus, in Virgo, on August 24th.  The year ends with another eclipse and some powerful shifts as Jupiter joins the Sun, Moon, south node and 3 other planets in Capricorn!

Meanwhile, earth sign energies still figure prominently in 2019 as Saturn and Pluto continue their trek through the sign of Capricorn while Uranus returns to Taurus and remains there until April 26, 2026.  Click link below for 2018 discussion that talks in depth in depth about Saturn, Uranus and Pluto in earth signs  https://www.theresemurphy.com/astrology-discussion-series-resumed-2018/

What’s cooking in the cosmos these days?

On the morning of Friday, April 5th, the Moon and Sun joined together in the sky initiating the New Moon Cycle in Aries which also heralds the start to the astrological year. And, previously, on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, we experienced the Spring Equinox, which officially signaled the start of Spring in the northern hemisphere. During the equinox, the Sun shines directly on the equator, creating almost exact equality in the length of light between day and night. The Equinox occurred at the exact same moment around the world, and looking toward the horizon, the sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west, whereas at other times in the year, the Sun appears off-center if you’re facing those directions.

 


Astrology, the Spring Equinox, and the New Moon in Aries – NATURE’S New Year

This year’s Equinox and Spring New Moon in Aries carry their own distinctive, promising, and challenging energies and set the tone for the next 12 months and suggest guidelines for what to focus on for at least the next quarter, until the summer solstice.

Since this year’s equinox occurred during a Mercury retrograde cycle, which officially completed on March 28th, in many ways, we were still moving behind the scenes to wrap up already existing projects and priorities that seemed to be dragging on — demanding more of us than we anticipated.

So, today’s New Moon in Aries affords us a genuine, energetic opportunity to start our year.  This is a natural time to set goals and declare our intentions for the next 12 months – to plant seeds and begin again.  And this year especially, our heart’s desires are truly awakening to align with both the power of our intentions and our sense of deep purpose, as the Sun and the Moon connect with serious Saturn and potent Pluto in challenging, demanding and invigorating ways.  Also, notably this Spring, revolutionary planet Uranus is now travelling through steady Taurus terrain (for the next seven years) allowing us to embrace change in ways that are a bit more wise, patient and considered.

And, while our sense of individuality and uniqueness are revving up to tackle life head on this Spring, the checking presence of mature Capricorn planets suggest that there could be stiff penalties for rash, short-sighted, or unrealistic choices this year, while 3 planets in Pisces better equip us with self compassion, awareness of others, and creative imagination for the journey forward.  Additional benefits of these planetary combinations include real invitations to develop our individual strength while accurately understanding its limits.  We can progress more consistently, strategically, and methodically through our goals and we can streamline and eliminate waste or excess to make way for new energies and opportunities that are also seeking our attention, courtesy of planet Jupiter!

So how will you engage with these springtime energies of 2019?

There’s plenty of planetary action to consider when looking at 2019!

Jupiter is moving through its home sign of Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years and will relate with outer-planet Neptune — moving through ITS  home sign of  Pisces;  the nodes of the Moon, a key indicator for the evolution of the soul, changed signs into Cancer for the first time in 18 years, an energy which is emphasized and related to the 3 remaining eclipses this year; there are 3 Mercury retrogrades; and Mars ventures “out of bounds” for several weeks this spring before it connects with its cosmic lover, Venus, this summer.

What’s cooking in the cosmos this Fall?

Dwarf planet Pluto crosses the plane of the ecliptic for the first time since 1930 and is occulted* twice by the Moon. Venus moves through her infrequent and significant 6 week retrograde cycle, in the signs of Scorpio and Libra.  As Venus moves through her beautiful, spiraling, flower-like movements, she also transitions from being the evening star into becoming the morning star.  Jupiter finishes up its year-long journey through the sign of Scorpio and Mercury goes retrograde in November.  In other words, there’s a lot going on!

Since the planetary movements in our solar system reflect our own human evolution back to us – think about looking in a giant cosmic mirror! – these energies are worth knowing about.

On October 10, 2018, I gave a 90 minute talk outlining this Fall’s astrological events, and some of the ways we can expect to experience these energies.  As a metaphysical astrologer and evolutionary intuitive, my calling and interest has always been to help awaken an inspired understanding of the higher spiritual potentials and creative opportunities inherent in our lives at any given time, and astrology is one of my tools for doing this.  This is why we gather for astrology discussions– to consciously engage with the interesting, joyful and sometimes challenging work our souls are up to.

What does it mean when a planet turns retrograde?

Here are just a few tidbits from the Talk:

A planet can only appear to move retrograde, when it is closest to Earth while in its planetary orbit around the Sun.  During planetary retrogrades, we experience the planet’s energies differently, often in heightened, yet less confident and more internalized ways. We often experience the areas of life associated with the planet in ways that are frustrated, or slowed down.

Retrograde planets remains in a sector of the zodiac longer while it appears to back up and then retrace its path.  Retrograde cycles often invite us to slow down, refuel, relax, and reorganize.

*Occultation:  From our vantage point on Earth, our Moon moves in between us and a planet, temporarily obscuring the planet from our view.

What’s cooking in the cosmos these days?

Over the course of this summer, 7 planets will appear to be moving in retrograde motion — and up to 6 at the same time!! There will also be 3 eclipses (not visible in the US) and 2 major supportive grand trines. In other words, there’s a lot going on.
Since the planetary movements in our solar system reflect our own human evolution back to us – think about looking in a giant cosmic mirror! – these energies are worth knowing about.

Listen to the video for more information about this RARE occurrence of 6 planets appearing to move retrograde at the same time — 96% of the time, this does NOT happen.

2018 Uranus in Taurus

2018 Uranus in Taurus 1000 625 webmaster

Discussion – Planet Uranus is changing signs! – Why is this SUCH a big deal?

As always, the insights and views expressed in this blog are my own interpretations and opinions — you’re welcome to consider or disregard them, along with any suggestions offered, as you see fit. Thank you for visiting!

Please note: I offer astrology chart readings in private, individual sessions only.

For full description of EVENT SERVICES, psychic tarot card readings, please visit my home page or previous blog post: Why feature psychic readings at your next event.

What’s cooking in the cosmos these days?

Planet Uranus is changing signs from fiery, impatient, independent, and often, argumentative Aries to earthy, steady, strong and determined Taurus on, Tuesday May 15, 2018 at 6:48am CT.  Uranus is an outer planet that spends approximately 7 years in one sign of the zodiac, so the last time Uranus moved through the sign of Taurus was from 1934-1942.  This planetary energy has not expressed itself in this sign for 76 years!

…… This is indeed a powerful shifting of gears in both the consolidation and continued disruption of our current energetic cycle!

 

Planet Uranus and the Sign of Taurus are VERY different energies with very different evolutionary themes and strategies.  In my astrology talk of January 2018, I outlined many of the key components of these two energies and gave some profound examples of how they combined to express during the 1930’s.   Check out this video excerpt to hear more and to start to get a  feel for this next 7 year cycle that we’re all* experiencing

 

[video_embed url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOzXTd3IrPU” embed_style=”default” border=”yes” animation=”fade-in”]

 

In many ways, Uranus is the planetary energy that’s most associated with CHANGE AND FREEDOM– often sudden, revolutionary and unpredictable –while Taurus is invariably voted the sign least likely to change.  Left to its own devices, Taurus will change… sometimes, maybe, but usually quite slowly and deliberately and only when it makes good sense to change.  Its earthy, sensual sensibilities prefer slower paced routines, predictability and familiar repetition — all of which are basically anathema to Uranus.

Uranus represents the sensibilities of a rascal, or court jester, who abhors pretense and convention and uses creative and inventive means to disrupt the status quo and bring liberating release to any repressed energies or restricted systems.  It is impersonal and often unrestrained in who or what it will effect — anything that is not expressing from its essential authenticity could be fair game for a shake up or a wake up call from Uranus.

*This massive energetic shift is not limited to those people who were born under the sign of Taurus — everyone has Taurus energy in their charts somewhere.

Where will you notice this energy expressing in your life and in the world?

The effects of Uranus moving through Taurus will express in all of the personal, societal, and collective arenas most associated with the domains of Taurus: earth itself, nature and agriculture, the environment, the physical body, the senses, financial economies, and basic, core human values to name a few!

This 7 year shift also opens up the possibilities of the highest and best expressions of these two energies, some of which are mentioned in the above video excerpt.  The innovation and community spirit of Uranus combines with the practical, hard-working, kindness of Taurus to do the foot-work of finding solutions to much of what was disrupted in the previous 7 year cycle, especially while Saturn and Uranus continue to move in their cooperative relationship in earth signs — we discussed much more of Saturn/Uranus combined energies in January and will likely revisit this in next talk on June 24th. https://www.theresemurphy.com/astrology-discussion-series-resumed-2018/

Would you like to engage more consciously with these opportunities to change and become more authentic in these important areas of your life over the next 7 years?

How can you hear more about these energies and what they mean for you individually over the next 7 years?  email Therese@theresemurphy.com to schedule your appointment for a private reading.

When is the next Astrology Talk?  Sunday, June 24, 2018 from 1-3pm at Unity in Chicago www.unitychicago.org  We will talk more about Uranus in Taurus then!

In these talks, we look at the amazing and powerful planetary energies expressing and the major themes of the NOW and how these energies and themes relate to YOU so you can connect to CO-CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT.

Attendees also receive hand-outs with astro-aligned homework questions for their SOUL!

Discussion – Spring Equinox – Why is this a big deal?

Discussion – Spring Equinox – Why is this a big deal? 1920 1276 webmaster

As always, the insights and views expressed in this blog are my own interpretations and opinions — you’re welcome to consider or disregard them, along with any suggestions offered, as you see fit. Thank you for visiting!

Please note: I offer astrology chart readings in private, individual sessions only.

For full description of EVENT SERVICES, psychic tarot card readings, please visit my home page or previous blog post: Why feature psychic readings at your next event.

What’s cooking in the cosmos these days?

The Spring Equinox is coming!  On Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 11:16am CT, the Spring Equinox occurs, officially signaling the start of Spring in the northern hemisphere.  At the equinox, the Sun shines directly on the equator, creating almost exact equality in the length of light between day and night. The Equinox occurs at the exact same moment around the world, and if you look to the horizon, the sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west, whereas at other times in the year, the Sun appears off-center if you’re facing those directions.

Why is it called the spring equinox?

Since night and day are nearly exactly the same length – 12 hours – all over the world the event is called the equinox, which means ‘equal night’ in Latin.

Solstices and equinoxes mark key stages in the astronomical cycle of the earth, corresponding with the changing of the seasons.  In a year there are two equinoxes (spring and autumn) and two solstices (summer and winter).  In astrology, each of the 4 seasons is greeted and expressed through a cardinal (initiating) sign of the zodiac

The dates of the equinoxes and solstices aren’t exactly the same every year due to the Earth’s elliptical orbit of the sun. The Earth’s orbit around the sun means that in early January, the sun is closest (known as perihelion) and in early July it is most distant (aphelion).



What happens on an equinox?

The Earth’s axis tilts at an angle of about 23.5° in relation to the ecliptic, the imaginary plane created by the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. On any other day of the year, either the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere tilts a little towards the Sun, but on the two equinoxes, the tilt of the Earth’s axis is perpendicular to the Sun’s rays.

Also, according to Spaceweather.com, at the time of the Equinox, cracks open up in Earth’s magnetic field, which is called the “Russell-McPherron effect,” named after the researchers who first explained it more than 40 years ago.

The “equinox cracks” are currently causing geomagnetic activity and bright auroras around the Arctic Circle.  Their website has more information available on this phenomenon.

…… This is indeed a magical time!

Astrology and the Spring Equinox – Nature’s New Year

In Western astrology, the Sun enters zero degrees of Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, at the time of the Spring Equinox, which I like to call nature’s new year.  This is a time of renewal. It is a natural time to set goals and intentions for the next 12 months – to plant seeds and begin again.  When the Sun enters Aries, our heart’s desires begin to awaken from the cocoon of winter.  This year’s Equinox carries its own distinctive, promising, and challenging energies with it and, in many ways, sets the tone for the next quarter, until the summer solstice.

This year’s equinox is noteworthy in bringing an extra dose of high octane astro-fuel to the start of Spring as the Sun will join 3 other planets currently moving through the impatient sign of Aries — including unpredictable Uranus which is spending its last 26 days in this self-focused sign after 7 years.  With this much Aries energy expressing, we might be chomping at the bit for whatever’s next, and could feel like rushing and sprinting forward into the new — any change could seem preferable to sitting still.  Yet, too many decisions made in haste could create more problems than they solve and might need to be cleaned up.  So finding healthy ways to burn off excess energy could make the difference in effective decision making.  Even the most reticent of folks might lose their tempers or consider embracing change with this much restless, assertive energy!

Additionally, the Sun crosses paths with action planet Mars, providing another feisty, impetuous, energetic circuit at this Equinox, although Mars will be newly traveling through the more disciplined, methodical sign of Capricorn.  Mars can move quite well in this sign of its exaltation – no longer wild and untamed, but definitely powerful, driven and determined.  There’s an effective sense of mission and purpose as well as a keen capacity for strategy and achievement, which could, at times, be heavy handed or controlling.

Harnessing the impulsive, willful, independent, and argumentative attitudes of these  signatures could prove challenging but necessary.  At times, cooperation, tact or diplomacy could seem like too big of a compromise, but the combination of Mercury and Venus moving together at the Equinox could help to ameliorate outright selfishness.  These energies could also correlate with courage in carving out new policies and agreements that include both younger and more feminine perspectives.  Women’s anger could continue to blaze over systemic abuses and could also continue to catalyze more voices and strengthen and embolden more individuality and leadership.  These fiery energies can be quite provocative yet they also suggest that, in order to avoid harm, we might benefit from consulting strong advisors with more experience and maturity who can guide and help us in using our strength effectively and responsibly.

This spring we could excitedly start many projects and tasks without following through.  Yet, these energies suggest that it is time to be brave, to begin, and to consider taking risks. Next month, as Venus moves through her home sign of Taurus, followed later by the Sun, we can connect with more patience and build steadily on new initiatives.

So how will you engage with these springtime energies of 2018?
