This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Capricorn Moon. Capricorn is what is known as a Cardinal Sign. These days, whenever the Moon passes through a Cardinal Sign I pay extra attention. Why? Because Lucifer, Saturn, and Hades are currently situated at cross purposes in that modality. With the Moon known to be the trigger mechanism that sets off all of the charges that give birth to even bigger changes, you can see why I get a little nervous on the days when she moves through Aries, Cancer, Libra, or, in this case, Capricorn.
At any other time perhaps this wouldn’t be a big issue, but in the midst of a plethora of aspects that are notable enough to have a conversation about, the kicker right now is coming out of a square from Uranus to the Moon’s nodal axis. If we take the Moon’s nodes to be the axis of spiritual evolution for an individual, or for the collective, at any given moment in time, and we understand Uranus to be the Cosmic 2-by-4, what we’re looking at are massive changes, the likes of which we have never seen before.
This possibility is currently being underscored by the fact that the Trans-Neptunian Point, Vulcanus, is also squaring Uranus, perched on the North Node of the Moon, at the first degree of Leo. The textbook definition of this transit is:
“The gale force winds of change (Internally, in the environment, and in the larger context of ‘social-political rebellion,’ movements, or shifts).” — “The Orders of Light” by Martha Lang-Wescott
With Uranus commonly known to be the lord of “extreme weather,” is it any surprise that hurricanes have been ravaging the Southeastern coasts of the United States, the polar ice caps are melting, and earthquakes, landslides, and volcanoes have recently vented their wrath on other parts of the world?
Combined with incendiary levels of political and social upheaval, the fact that Lucifer is about to retrograde backward over the Aries Point has me thinking that all of the above is due to come to a boil just in time for Halloween.
The Aries Point is significant because it is the Alpha-Omega Point for the entire Zodiac. Whenever there are major transits to that degree, for better or worse, the impact spills out and affects all of humanity. In other words, none of us is exempt from the forces that are in play, and with Lucifer at the wheel? Could “all Hell break loose”? If it does, the process will carry us through Thanksgiving and extend into the first week of December.
Will there be a reprieve? Is there light at the end of the tunnel? From my perspective we are entering the thick of it, and with levels of unpredictable energy going right off the charts, at the point where the sidewalk ends, who knows what will happen next, or how it will all turn out? I am pretty sure that we will get through this, but at the moment we are heading into the Great Void, approaching the point where Fate and Free Will meet their maker.
I play the guitar a little bit. It helps me get out of my head. I sit in my room and sing songs to myself to keep from going crazy. One of my favorites is “Bad Moon Rising,” an old Creedence Clearwater Revival tune. The lyrics make more sense to me now than they ever have before – with that in mind, let me leave you with the words that follow and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
