Fire on the mountain!!! If ever there were a SUPER Square, this is it! We’re on volcanic turf these next couple days folks. The Capricorn Mountain in your life is a churnin … do you feel it? The institutions/ambitions in your world are in a cauldron with your personal identity and spiritual faith. Starting NOW, and progressing through this Aries Lunar Transit, your subconscious will square off with the outward expression of your internal dialog (Mercury Rx) surrounding who you know yourself to be (Aries), your spiritual faith (Sagittarius), and the machinery of society (Capricorn). Expect dissolution (Neptune), misinformation (Pisces), awakening (Uranus), and a loving dose of compassion/empathy (Venus in Pisces) … in our RELATIONSHIPS (Jupiter in Libra).

Leading up to the square that peaks on Thursday January 5, 2016 at 11:46 am Los Angeles, 7:46 pm London, and 6:46 am Sydney on January 6th, we remain in the ‘Struggle Phase’. A time where situations in your life confront you to the point of action/release. Where through conscious listening and deliberate actions, we have access to integrating our intentions into our reality. This commonly results in the experience of a struggle and creates the opportunity for healing, then for a day after the square, we move into the Action Phase … a time to move forward.

Keeping in mind the intentions squaring off are the ones created at the beginning of this lunar cycle on the Capricorn New Moon moving us up the mountain of life and those imprinted during the Aries SUPER New Moon on April 11th, 2016 when we emoted our individual expression within the universal consciousness. For the day leading up to the square, we will continue to encounter instances of perceived breakdowns playing out in the areas of life depicted by the house those degrees occupy in your chart. Then the day after, we will be challenged to take discerning actions to break up the past and move towards our intentions.

For you see, once set in motion, there is an unofficial universal law that pulls toward and/or reveals to us that which impedes our intended future. It’s like a universal authority that’s saying ‘you want that … well, things have to shift’ and ultimately those ‘things’ are rooted in our beliefs. Our life experience is nothing more than a projection of our beliefs and when we transform our beliefs … what was once not working, becomes open to new possibilities.

The challenge exists in uncovering the beliefs and letting go of attachments to anything/one that breaks away during said ‘shift’. For it is when we hang on … that we suffer. Lucky for us, or maybe not so lucky, every lunar transit our beliefs manifest in our lives through the interplay between the sun (conscious) and moon (subconscious) energies. Right now the sun is in Capricorn and the moon is in Aries.

The sun is the source of creative energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn we are grounded, driven to achieve, and deliberate in action. Our nature is serious. We are motivated by responsibility and respect. Our productivity flourishes with structure, goals, and ‘rules’. With strong work ethic, we accomplish more, and reach the top of the mountain however long, or much, it takes.

The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (all history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level.

Collectively, the subconscious experience of Aries is assertive, we find our emotional selves blazing into action, boldly speaking out, and standing proud on the heart of any matter. We quickly shift the focus from the collective back to our viewpoint … hopefully somewhat more connected/enlightened. We have the spark of fresh initiation, ready for new beginnings. It brings out the ‘fight’ in everyone. Bringing the collective consciousness down into day-to-day life, where we have the opportunity to make the difference.

Remember, individually all of the energies you experience are focused through the imprint made at your birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign … from both the sun (Capricorn) and the moon (Aries). The resonance of that energy is determined by your beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not … and the manifestations of those energies will occur in your life according to the houses.

What was happening in your life at the beginning of the year on April 11th, 2016? What were your dominant emotions? What beliefs are you encountering … right now? What houses do Capricorn and Aries occupy in your chart?

These energetic influences are yours to RECREATE by who you are being in your conscious mind (Capricorn Sun – your ambition) and your responses to unconscious perception (Aries Moon – your dreams) as the moon is NOW in the sign of Aries. You are shaping your future life experience and have access to bring your energetic being into alignment with a higher state … by being conscious of the energies at play and intentionally shifting who you’re being!

Events over the next several days will reveal your beliefs through what is playing out in your life. Giving you an opportunity to be responsible for them, forgive yourself and others, and intentionally transform them through the face-off between Capricorn and Aries energies.

To receive the most out of this phase, keep your heart and mind open to the universe revealing the beliefs you have that stand between you and the fulfillment of your intentions. These are at the core of every ‘struggle’. Review your assets and find what within you will help you to thrive. Stay present to the commitment behind your intention and take swift action after the First Quarter Square peaks!
