A year to create!
Welcome to a new energetic reality and a break down of what the Astrology of 2019 holds for us. May I just say, well done for making it through the year of retrogrades, otherwise known as 2018! I believe that most of us deserve a hearty pat on the back after making it through what has been a year of reworking, inner discovery and false starts.
What goes down must come up
As I mentioned, 2018 was a year of reviewing and re-thinking for many, with so many planets taking their turn to retrograde through our charts. This gave a Universal importance to the need to clear away the inner debris of our psyche’s in order to that we may be better in touch with ourselves. The tendency to always want to move forward and outward is a very modern attitude in some ways. Technology certainly doesn’t aid in reminding us that sometimes, what is most important, is time to reflect and get in touch with the soul.
Venus retrograde asked us to consider what we value. Mars retrograde caused us to look at how we co-operate with others and challenged our sense of direction. Uranus retrograde in Aries sparked our feelings of rebellion and challenged us to release that nervous tension wisely. These are just a few of the retrograde themes we were dealing with this year.
What was it all for?
Well, 2018 really called on us to do handle these issues in order to make room for the astrology of 2019 and the blessings it could bring. Before being able to progress in major ways we were asked, is this really what you value? Is this really who you are? Is this really what/who you love? And the questions continued to such an extent that it left some if us feeling as though we were stumbling around in the dark.
The thing is, that stumbling around in the dark to find our truth, came with many hidden gifts. After all, who wants to put 20 years of work into something only to realise after much investment, this isn’t me, this isn’t what I love. Lessons were around every corner for us, from career to love, from friend to foe. Hopefully, now as we come out of this learning, you have a clearer image of what you want your life to be. As well as who you’re taking along for the ride.
….Jupiter, the planet of luck, opportunity, and expansion, has now moved into his home of Saggitarius where he will be for nearly the whole of 2019. Saturn, the planet of building long-lasting structures is happy in his home of Capricorn. So both of these very powerful energies will be available for us utilize as we move into 2019. We are being asked to be inspired, to think big and build our dreams. The type that fulfil our higher ambitions for ourselves. And these are dreams that can genuinely become a reality!
Sagittarius is the Archer, the centaur, with one eye looking to the heavens to see what wish can be aimed at and gained for oneself. But like anything in life, what goes down must come up. So if in 2018 you found yourself at a loss or hitting roadblocks on the path to your dreams, worry not. Think of the arrow that the Archer holds; in order to shoot forward with ferocity and precision, we must pull back the bow. At first, this can feel like two steps back or a lack of progress. But in fact, the retrogrades of 2018 were helping us to take a clearer more authentic and on target aim. Leading us into the awesome astrology of 2019 to 2020.
The Astrology of inspiration
Jupiters move into his home sign will see whichever area of life he touches being magnified in your Astrological chart. Opportunity may abound, growth can present itself and the Midas touch just might be yours. Remember, Jupiter expands what he touches so if something is no longer working for you, that will be expanded too. Look at the house he rules in your chart. There may be something to say goodbye to before he blows the situation larger than life.
That said, he will be making a square (an aspect of tension) to Neptune in the sky. This speaks of blind optimism, inspiration, spirituality, huge dreams and inspired creativity. This can be a time when those interested in such things find themselves going deeper in these subjects and creating beautiful works of art. Or being divinely inspired. The only issue here is that Neptune, that dreamy planet, makes it hard for us to keep our feet on the ground. It’s great to have dreams, but make sure they are grounded.
Use that Saturn in Capricorn energy to strategize, set goals, be realistic and stay on course. Wherever Saturn currently is in your chart, is the area you can build long-lasting success in. This is also the area of life you are being called to master. So pay attention to what is happening there. With such an optimistic year ahead of us it is wise to be aware of unrealistic expectation and foolish risks! Saturn appreciates a step by step, brick by brick approach and cutting corners will only cost you in the long run!

As the subject of Astrology gains popularity amongst the masses, so the term retrograde is gaining more awareness. And here we are now in yet another Venus retrograde. Oh life does love it’s cycles hey? From the rumblings I hear out and about in […]
Many of us are familiar with the archetype of Venus, whether we are avid students of Astrology or not. She has been the muse for many an artwork and many a song, the scapegoat for many a heartbroken lover and bitter ex. But what exactly […]
On July 30th that Teacher asteroid, Chiron, stations retrograde in Pisces at 28 degrees. This day along with Chiron station direct will be a pivotal day for many of us, why? Because as a planet is seen to stand still in order to change direction, it creates an imprint and leaves a heavier mark than it would simply moving in one dirrection. Think about your feet if you were walking in mud or snow and suddenly changed direction, the extra pressure exerted would create a heavier imprint. Well, is a similar thing.
For a lot of us something will come up around this time that is likely to have us feeling vulnerable and possibly hurt. Chiron is the wounded healer and this period of time may have us feeling scarred in one way or another. Add to this Neptune’s present retrograde and you will find that there is much in the internal circuitry of man that is being worked out and affected now.
The thing about painful wounds is that their very rarely new. The reason they tend to hurt to hurt so much is because when we really stop to examine them, they remind us or take us back to an earlier wound from childhood that left us deeply scarred. The beauty of chiron is that it gives opportunity for us to become whole and heal these wounds. The part which many of us humans dislike however is that these wounds must be triggered for us to know that they are there and this Chiron retrograde will provide us with that trigger.
The gift that Chiron gives is the ability to mmove through our pain in order to bring our full presence and power to the here and now, rather than stuck in past hurts and conditioning that drain so much of our energies. When we feel deeply hurt the fact is we are existing in 2 time lines. The present where the current wound has been inflicted and the past where the intial wounding took place. There is no power in the past and existing in two worlds is tiring even for the most unconscious of us. In order to create, live from peace and feel true inner security we need to retrieve from our past, inital woundings, the parts of our soul that were discarded or rejected our of fear. Chiron is the great integrator, the maker of wholeness where through our pain, we can collect the pieces of ourselves back together again.
Chirons Movement 2017
Chiron spends this year in Pisces, a water sign connecting to emotion, illusion, imagination, compassion, the pschic, boundlessness and self sacrifice as well as service. This puts the healing to be done on an very emotional level. This year we are drawn to heal the most vulonerable and deepest emotional wounds should we accept the invitation.
30th June – Chiron station retrograde at 28 degrees of Pisces
This means that Chiron will be moving backwards through these degrees and we may now experince our deepest healing and opportunity to conect to unconscious aspects of ourselves.
5th December – Chiron stations direct at 24 degrees of Pisces
This will mean that Chiron will now be forward over the 4 degrees it previously retrograded through. This time can bring an integration of what we learnt during the retrograde period, an assimilation of the lessons and healing.
In March of 2018 we will then be out of this Chiron retrograde phase and see it move into Aries in 2018 where we will be taken into pioneering self discovery and opportunities to make and present ourselves anew arise.
Who will it affect?
I expect us all to feel the effects of this Chiron transit however if you have any planets within 24 to 28 degrees of Pisces this will have a rather major impact on you, you will be experiencing a Chiron transit to whichever planet it impacts.
Those with planets in 24 – 28 degrees of;
Will also be impacted.
How this plays out depends on the planets involved, Venus will see self-value, fractured relationships and love at the forefront. Mars will see issues of assertiveness, confidence, self-will, anger or ineffectiveness highlighted. Saturn can bring up wounds related to the father, broken reputations, career and oppressive/suffocating situations for us to heal.
How do I handle this transit?
The only way is through, not around, not over and not out. Open the door to whatever lies beneath, invite it in and listen to it with copassion. Understand that this has been with you for many years and this is a wounded aspect of yourself that has been crying out to be healed. Emotional connection and acknowledgment with this aspect of self is what it takes, imagine a child that simply wants be seen and heard, this is that Chironic wounded aspectof self.
Be mindful too that others will be experiencing their own wounds and will likely be feeling more sensitive than usual. Tread gently with all and forgive any temporary madness that may occur so as not to pile further resentments or angers on your already ripe load.
Emotional healing techniques will work best with Chiron in the watery, emotional sign of Pisces. And with Neptune, ruler of Pisces, currently retrograde in its own sign our sensitivity is heightened, our connection to God/Source/Great Spirit is more readily felt, the weak spots become more visible and the truth of ourselves is easier to find and to bear. Go gentle, but go. If there were ever a time to reclaim and re-member our eternal goodness and value, then this is it.
Blessings and Peace
So here we are on two subjects that are rapidly gaining awareness in our collective consciousness, narcissism and the Divine Feminine. Two subjects that I feel are inextricably linked and are part of our personal as well as collective evolution. A potential growth spurt has […]
