Manifesting Passions of the Heart

Lunar Planner Synopsis
Unlike the last few lunar cycles which may have seemed a bit intense, and leaving us with a feeling of uncertainty, this lunar cycle and the next will be more progressive, restoring a sense of movement with optimism for the future. This New Moon, an Annular Solar Eclipse, occurs exactly on the cusp of sidereal Sagittarius-Capricorn. It also conjoins Venus, which also marks the mid-point of vision and realization in the current 584-day Earth-Venus cycle; and it occurs during Mercury's direct station (the completion of Mercury's retrograde). Cuspal sidereal Sagittarius-Capricorn is where we are faced with concretizing our visions and ideals (common to late Sagittarius and overseeing Lyra) into demonstrable and practical form in the physical world. Alpha Pavo, the Peacock, sums up the last degree of sidereal Sagittarius, fully radiant in its multi-colored spectrum of vision and ideals, proudly displays all that it is and brings inspiration to express the beauty that we are and that we truly envision. Here on the cusp, we find soul-level support provided by Eta Mensa (of Table Mountain) to now actualize that eloquence. We are also faced with addressing the inherent aberrations or distortions that occur when applying our ideals into practical demonstrable and physical form, revealed by a Planetary Nebula and Irregular Galaxy of Sagittarius, which reach just over the cusp into sidereal Capricorn. Two pulsars in northern Vulpecula, the elegant, but sly and cunning fox, aid us and warn us when applying the lofty ideals of the Sagittarian Zen archer into physical form.

Venus will start a new (synodic) cycles with Chiron, Neptune, and Jupiter in this lunar cycle, These are the first Venus cycles occurring with these planets after our recent Jupiter-Neptune-Chiron conjunction occurring in 2009.

Mars, currently retrograde, will begin a new and significant Earth-Mars 780-day (synodic) cycle when the Sun, Earth and Mars align on the Full Moon eve of January 29, 2010. This cycle's theme is defined by the star alignments looking from the Sun toward Earth and Mars, which occurs in the center of sidereal Cancer. Mars will complete its retrograde on March 10, 2010, in the following lunar cycle, at which time we will fully engage in the new Earth-Mars synodic cycle. During its retrograde, Mars also aspects the already occurring Saturn-Pluto square along with Jupiter, all occurring later in this lunar cycle. In a several day process, Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn and Mars create two interlocking Yods. One places a direct focus onto Mars and the new Mars synodic cycle. The other emphasis is placed upon Jupiter.

Saturn and Pluto have maintained a very tight square since the Saturn-Pluto square began in mid-November 2009 through the second conjunction occurring on January 31, 2010. As we emerge from the second Saturn-Pluto square, and the interlocking Yods (Finger of God) occur with Mars and Jupiter, we are motivated to initiate expansive action. This movement however does not occur on its own. It is up to us to creatively make this move from what may seem like a motionless and undefined opening (occurring throughout late December and January).

This entire Mars retrograde period and the interlocking Yods play a key role in establishing a new focus in the application of our creative power in the world.

These are just a few of many events occurring in this lunar cycle, one that engages a dynamic and transformative new year. The Lunar Planner explores the details of the events occurring in each lunar cycle, based in star-level astronomical astrology and synodic astrology.
