Revolutionary times ahead, Aquarius season 2022

January 19 it’s AQUARIUS TIME AGAIN as the SUN enters the 11th sign at 6:39 pm PST/ 9:39 pm EST/ January 20 at 2:39 am GMT in 2022! Happy Birthday you radical black sheep nerdy pioneers and space cadets.

Aquarius season with URANUS, the modern ruler of Aqua turning STATIONARY DIRECT is very powerful. Uranus the ruler of Metaverse, cryptocurrencies, NFT’s radicals, inventions and pioneers, like Elon Musk.

Uranus will remain stationary at 10 degrees 49′ until the 22nd. URANUS is considered to be the “higher octave” of MERCURY, the communications, merchandiser and Trickster planet which is RETROGRADE in AQUARIUS and is square to planet URANUS at 10 degrees. This creates a lag effect in info moving forwards until Mercury turns Direct on Feb 3 in Capricorn at 24 degrees conjunct PLUTO.

Saturn the traditional ruler of AQUARIUS is moving ahead quickly now.  Aquarius times are rebellious times, think Liberation, invention, freedom, pioneering, collective thinking, higher-minded, Higher consciousness, detached, hi-tech, group-minded. People will be fighting for their freedoms, there are more protests, it’s the changing of the old guard, The Royals are over, Its Time to be free.

Although many touted the AGE OF AQUARIUS starting on the famous Jupiter Saturn conjunction of December 21 2020 my best are on it starting when Pluto enters Aquarius in 2024 and ushers in a two-pronged Aquarian age.

Many people will want to be on the hi-tech neural net, uploading their consciousness ot the cloud, being “immortal.” VR, replacing body parts with robotics, gene splicing, CRISPR babies, in the metaverse, A1, crypto, blockchain, SpaceX, G5 and beyond, mind control, robotics and going to Mars.

The other side of dual air sign AQUARIUS will want a more pastoral group-minded communal, bartering 60’s, AQUARIUS, yes you can hear the song from the musical Hair start on cue. Tune in, Turn on and drop out society rebelling against the information age and creating a sharing society with no hierarchies, more freedom, gender fluid, and more equality between the sexes and in society in general, a Utopian rather than a Dystopian ideal. AQUARIUS represents the Ideals of humanity traditionally.

URANUS the planet that orbits at a 90-degree angle is definitely the weirdo Aquarians must learn to embrace their kinks and wire to be weirdness. Be your own individual, be weird, proud – It’s the opposite sign of Leo remember. 

Many astrologers argue about when the Actual Age of Aquarius begins or has begun and some say it won’t begin for another 400 years. An AGE is properly defined by the sun’s passage against a Constellation broken down into 30 degrees. It takes the sun 2,160 years to transit a Sign which is what an AGE is defined by. The Age of PISCES which is what Christianity is all about actually, Christ’s fishes symbol, began approx. 2,160 years ago. It will take around 400 years before the Sun enters the Sidereal sign of Aquarius at the Spring Equinox.  Because of the Precession of the Equinoxes, the Spring equinox Vernal point has slipped backwards, 23 degrees from Zero degrees of the  ARIES Constellation in the last 2,160 years, to 6 + degrees Pisces. I use Tropical Western Astrology not VEDIC Sidereal Astrology which is what Astronomy is aligned with.

AQUARIUS is a STATE OF MIND. Question everything. Be like Groucho Marx- Whatever It is I’m against it.

It’s an AIR SIGN, NOT A WATER SIGN as many people think because of its’ symbol in the constellations. The Astrology glyph can also be conceived as two parallel waves of quantum matter or parallel horizontal electric currents moving through the AIR. it can also be interpreted as The symbol of the God or Goddess pouring water- is a symbol of consciousness, or Divine love.

AQUARIUS is the symbol of THE STAR in the TAROT #17.

The 11th SIGN is traditionally ruled by SATURN, which seems weird to most moderns. Each planet originally ruled over two signs, a masculine and a feminine one- very balanced. The Sun and the Moon are NOT planets, Sun rules LEO and the Moon rules CANCER.

Planet Uranus was discovered by Herschel in 1781, although it had been observed before by the naked eye. Astrologers didn’t want to disturb the original 7 planetary designation, so they places Uranus as the HIGHER OCTAVE of Mercury.  It was originally called the Georgian Planet after King George the 3rd.

URANUS rules the 11th sign and house of wishes, hopes and dreams. Higher consciousness, revolutions and radical thinking, objectivity, big picture thinking, management, organizations,  engineers, radical new inventions,  IT, robots, A1, the Internet, computers,etc. open-minded, group think, lightning, aeronautics, ambulances, clubs, debating, earthquakes, chaos, fire-powered weapons, telepathy, guerillas, and eccentrics and LGBTQ people.

HEY ALL YOU AQUARIANS -YOU need to bring IT. The revolutions which honor each individuals right to be free. You were born for these times.

What planets or angles do you have in Aquarius? These will be activated with Saturn in Aquarius until 2023.

MERCURY is RETROGRADE in AQUARIUS and stays there until February 15

VENUS travels through Aquarius from March 6-April 5

MARS is in AQUARIUS from March 5/6 to April 14/15

AQUARIUS LOVE TIME

VENUS AND MARS conjunct on March 5/6 in AQUARIUS at 0/1 degrees.

Actually have two or three Valentine’s days in 2022 because Venus and Mars also conjunct in Capricorn at 15+ degrees on February 16 on a Full Moon in LEO and then on March 5/6 in Aquarius. How cool is that? Saturn rules both signs traditionally.

MARS will be in GEMINI for a long time August 20 until the end of the Year as it turns Retrograde om October 29 and trines AQUARIUS

To thine own self be true.

Christmas past and Future Chaos, Saturn Square Uranus

The_Mutilation_of_Uranus_by_Saturn Wikmedia Commons
The Mutilation of Uranus by Saturn Wikmedia Commons

December 23/24 a strange and unusual Christmas occurs on the 23rd at 11:17 pm PST/ December 24 at 2:17 am EST/ 7:17 am GMT so expect a chaotic wake-up call for Christmas. People will be celebrating in unusual ways and of course in cyberspace again not in real-time.

Saturn or SATAN, is the Timekeeper, Father Time the limiter restrictor and elder. He is death, the Grim reaper, the inevitability of mortality and ensuring that all things pass away. Uranus when discovered accidentally by Herschel with a Telescope in March 13, 1781, by disrupted the old order the same way as the Greek myths for which it was named. Uranus represents a higher consciousness aspect of mercury extending our knowledge into space, into the great beyond, the unbounded, unlimited, pioneering, hi-tech, man-made inventions, radical freedom energy.

As the Higher octave of Mercury, Uranus is like Loki, in the Viking myths a supreme trickster, who suddenly pulls the rug out from under everything and sabotages our carefully constructed plans.

This is being born out by Government trying to control Cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency is the future it is inevitable especially when Pluto enters Aquarius in 20224/2025

Remember that Saturn and Uranus will still be in a square pattern for most of 2022.

from August with both Retrograde from 16-21 degrees. They will be within a degree of an exact square from mid-September to October. So more of the same.

How solid the foundations are of anything is important. You can have problems with your teeth and bones suddenly having issues and challenges because of this energy too.

A Back to the Future, days of Future Past, Past Present energy

Saturn=Satan. Uranus= urine. Saturn Square Uranus = pissed off

Santa will look totally different, presents will be strange or on the net, there will be upheavals at the dinner table between old values and breakaway ones.

This is the final SQUARE of 2021 between stable solid restricting, depressing Saturn and Chaotic, revolutionary, freedom-loving, detached URANUS in Taurus.

Saturn square Uranus is called Chronos Chaos or Time Chaos. Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in stable Taurus formed tense square aspects on valentine’s Day February 17/18 at 7 degrees 14′ and again at June 15 at 13 degrees 7′. Think back on what was happening on those dates.

Saturn and Uranus are long-term structures and innovating new social media and new ideas and philosophies. Be careful of too much cold hard transhumanist hyper-tech energies trying to break down traditions that we have held dear.

If you have planets at 11+ degrees AQUARIUS or TAURUS you will feel the direct hit. If you also have other FIXED signs of SCORPIO or LEO you are in the crosshairs.

Remember that people will be driving erratically, and that things will be tense.

The forces of history structure, doing things “the right way” and Patriarchal norms are Saturnine, Uranus is cryptocurrencies, and freedom, liberation, a higher view, breaking free of old structures, Get out of Jail Free cards, organizations, detachment, more scientific.

Remember that Saturn castrated Uranus in the Greek myths because he was the old sky father. Contrary to what we think about Uranus ruling Aquarius now. Saturn was the traditional ruler of both signs representing the ability of the Old Order to incorporate new ideas traditions and build anew.

URANUS in TAURUS rules food and innovations and freedom for women and gays.

The Potato chip was accidentally invented during a past Uranus in Taurus transit. from April 16, 1851, to June 2, 1858.

African American chef George Crumaccidentally invented potato chips in 1853 who was told by his customers to make his thick potatoes thinner. By accident, the very thin chips were a hit. Crum’s chips were originally called Saratoga Chips and potato crunches and were soon packaged and sold in New England. After the accidental invention, William Tappendon manufactured and marketed the chips in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1895 when Uranus entered Scorpio the opposite sign.

In 1920s, the salesman Herman Lay sold potato chips in the southern USA selling chips from the trunk of his car and in 1926, Laura Scudder (who owned a potato chip factory in Monterey Park, California) invented a wax paper potato chip bag to keep the chips fresh and crunchy, which this made potato chips even more popular.

URANUS in TAURUS also coincides with the first Feminist movements from 1850 to 1859 as well as during the Civil War in the U.S. over freedom from slavery and Walt Whitman’s poems created an openness to Homosexuality

Sojourner Truth made her famous Ain’t I A Woman speech at the Women’s Convention organized in Akron, Ohio. In 1859, Walt Whitman created an unpublished sheaf of twelve homoerotic poems, later published and known as the“Calamus ” cluster. They opened up a major controversy in literary circles about openly acknowledging homosexuality.

Remember that things are very intense leading up to Xmas, and the chaotic and unpredictable nature of things. Be gentle with yourself and those you love as we are all under the same energies. Think of it all as one big real spiritual retreat.

MOON enters VIRGO on the 24th at 3:24 am EST

MARS and CHIRON have a fiery trine on Xmas Day

and VENUS and PLUTO meet up once again with Venus Retrograde on the 25th at 7:02 am EST expect Christmas day to have excessive obsessive shadowy consequences. All the direct will be excavated. If you are with the family and they are toxic make sure you have on psychic protection and view this as a movie. Dont let yourself be dragged down into toxic sludge.

Wishing you all the very best for Christmas, the Sun’s Victory, Yule.

You think people will be tone-deaf to what you’re saying, or your looking through a glass darkly or just ghosted or like in a dream when you can’t speak.

then the SATURN URANUS square is at night on the 23rd/ 24. The intense progressive resistance movement.

I’ll write about that separately.

The energy will feel very tense on top of the usual holiday tension. Remember Venus is Retrograde conjunct Pluto what more could be happening? Expect Bank failures if I ever was going to pick a date it would be this one especially while everyone is celebrating Xmas. So it’s a bit late but make sure your money and tangibles are safe.

Happy Solstice/ Christmas/ Mother Night

Christmas as most Christians knows it, is a colonialized patriarchal theft by the Church who stole it from traditional indigenous shamanic cultures from Siberia and Nordic countries of Norway, Finland Lapland, and the Arctic Circle and rebranded this ancient pagan tradition of SOLSTICE as the concept of “Father Christmas” which was originally MOTHER CHRISTMAS or The SUN GODDESS returning.

Yes, there is no real Santa Claus/ Father Christmas but there was a Mother Christmas.

Long before Santa and Rudolph led his sleigh of flying reindeer, it was a female reindeer who drew the sleigh of the Sun Goddess at Winter Solstice. How illogical that a father Christmas brought gifts and the return of light at the Winter Solstice—it was “Mother Christmas,” the ancient Deer Mother of old. She who has always flown through winter’s longest darkest night with the life-giving light of the sun in her horns.

From the British Isles, Scandinavia, Russia, Siberia, across the land bridge of the Bering Strait, she was a revered spiritual figure associated with fertility, motherhood, regeneration and the rebirth of the sun (the theme of winter solstice). Her antlers adorned shrines and altars, were buried in ceremonial graves and were worn as shamanic headdresses. Her image was etched in standing stones, woven into ceremonial cloth and clothing, cast in jewelry, painted on drums, and tattooed onto skin. Reindeer were often shown leaping or flying through the air with neck outstretched and legs flung out fore and aft. Her antlers were frequently depicted as the tree of life, carrying birds, the sun, moon, and stars.

And across the northern world, it was the Deer Mother who took flight from the dark of the old year to bring light and life to the new. Sorry Rudolph, but the male reindeer shed their antlers in the winter, it is only the doe who retains her antlers as she is the one who leads the herds in winter. Ever since the early Neolithic period, the female reindeer was venerated by Northern people. She was the “life-giving mother,” the leader of the herds upon which they depended for survival, and they followed the reindeer migrations for milk, food, clothing and shelter.

The SAMI people where what we think of shamanism originates were one of these cultures that honored the “life-giving Deer Mother” of the indigenous people of the Nordic countries. Beaivi is the name for the Sun Goddess associated with motherhood, the fertility of plants and the reindeer. At Winter Solstice, warm butter (a symbol of the sun) was smeared on doorposts as a sacrifice to Beaivi so that she could gain strength and fly higher and higher into the sky. Beaivi was often shown accompanied by her daughter in an enclosure of reindeer antlers and together they returned green and fertility to the land. She is a parthenogenesis Goddess.

Many other winter goddesses of Northern legends were associated with the solstice. They took to the skies led by a bevy of flying animals. Saule, origin of the word SOL in the Lithuanian and Latvian Goddess of the Sun. She flew across the heavens in a sleigh pulled by horned reindeer and threw pebbles of amber, symbolizing the sun into chimneys.

Many historical explorations of the pagan origins of Christmas observe the link between Santa’s garb and the red and white amanita mushroom ingesting shamans, few mention that it was female shamans who originally wore red and white costumes trimmed with fur, horned headdresses or red felt hats! The ceremonial clothing worn by medicine women healers of Siberia and Lapland, was green and white with a red peaked hat, curled toed boots, reindeer mittens, fur lining and trim. Totally ripped off by Christians for Santa Claus.

From the Orkney Islands off of the U.K “On Helya’s Night, translated later as HOLY NIGHT just as the children had once been committed to the protection of a goddess, ancestor, or the female deities known as the Disir, the ceremony became Christianised and the “mother” was naturally equated with the Virgin Mary, Christ’s mother.” from http://www.orkneyjar.com/tradition/yule/yule3.htm

Venus Retrograde with Pluto, Toxic love release

Planet Venus is travelling through Capricorn for 4+ months from November 5. 2021 until March 6, 2022 bringing women, values, finance and hard-working long-term concrete plans and responsibilities, restrictions and hard love knocks and Saturn rules and tests to the fore.

Venus is BEAUTY and PLUTO is a form of the BEAST. In The myth Belle needs to love the Beast for his kindness respect love and not his outward ugly beastliness. This is a great soul task before us.

Venus turns Retrograde on December 19 at 26+ degrees CAPRICORN conjunct to PLUTO at 25 degrees 32′ until January 29 at 11 degrees 05′ Capricorn. It will take until March 2/3rd until Venus bypasses her Retrograde station degree.

Venus makes a star- point on January 8th at 19 Capricorn the same degree as January 8, 2018. What was going on four years ago? Think back to that now for a re-occurance of themes.That date is David Bowie’s birthday and Elvis Presley’s too

In the Greek Myths Pluto is Hades who is Venus/Persephone’s abductor or sexual initiator, later her part time husband. Venus/Pluto also reiterates one of the oldest known myths of INANNA going into the Underworld/Hades.

VENUS is also LILITH the much-maligned first woman in the Old testament. Women need to embrace the death-bringing aspect of power in their relationships. I don’t mean murder but knowing when to say no when to stop feeding into giving one’s power away when to stop feeding the narcissistic, toxic monsters in the culture and corporate world and governments who are feasting on your emotions sexual and loving energy and body.

This is a very intense SCORPIONIC stationary point. Venus PLUTO conjunct is like a dark passionate murder mystery crime, a corporate financial steal, a breakdown of corporate control and values, control of women’s bodies- Capricorn by the Patriarchy- Roe versus Wade is on the chopping block. This is intense women need to reclaim their power their bodies their financial control from outside authorities.

I just realized the similarity between Polutting and P{o}luto. Venus Retrograde in Capricorn with Pluto is about communing with the ancestors, with their bones and wisdom.

Control of life and death by Plutocrats and government is what Venus Retro with Pluto in Capricorn is all about. The Handmaiden’s Tale comes to mind.

Beauty and the Beast if you see death that way is a literal translation.

Venus and Pluto conjunct as Venus Turns retrograde in Capricorn which is old age. Poem by Kahlil Gibran https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-beauty-of-death-xiv/

PLUTO was the ancient God of Wealth as well as Death. The Billionaires and their shady secret dealings will be outted. Governments are attempting to extract more tax from the wealthy. NOTE ELON MUSK in the news regarding this he will pay $11 Billion in Taxes this year

We need to review our feelings about Death, The culture is terrified of it and we need to be letting go of the ego identities based on power and material greed, and material wealth. We all must die someday but the fear of death is merely an imbalanced and unspiritual view of life. PLUTO cuts off and is the holder of great soul secrets about the nature of death and the afterlife, Now would be a great time to explore these mysteries. Death is not the end of life but merely the continuum into another state of consciousness.

Pluto is the great destroyer and transformer of all things. Pluto’s Conjunction with Venus as she turns stationary to Retrograde carries a heavy mark, Pluto is sure to test and destroy many long-lasting committed relationships -that Capricorn traditional thing soul purpose.

Expect Great emotional upheavals and deep dark shadow plays which will make or break all relationships. Powerful transformations and empowerment or enslavement of women, and the dark sexual underside- the Ghislaine Maxwell trial is the perfect example of Venus/Pluto in Capricorn energy on the world’s stage. Who will win? Maxwell and the corporate Plutocrats she and I believe still living Jeffrey Epstein was associated with like Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Bill Gates, you’ve seen that list? or the underdog abused women?

Our values, finances, careers, wealth, death, long term plans and goals, shadows, our own unintegrated emotionally unlived feelings and traumas acts of ruthlessness, control, secrets, inheritances and the Plutocracy/ the banks, the .0001% are either going to totally take control over everyone or be destroyed as Pluto’s forces of invisibility and death do on the personal level.

Venus Retrograde here is about dealing with body images and the sexualization of women’s bodies. There could be popular grassroots work done to control the sexualization and fetishization of women’s bodies. Women need to take back their power.

on the mundane level for the 42 days

DO NOT CUT YOUR HAIR, GET SURGERY, PLASTIC SURGERY, OR TATOOS. Removing a Tatoo would be appropriate.

WEAR BLACK FOR 42 DAYS or earthy brown or beige colors.

Re-doing your beauty regimen, restyling, renovating your home or home office are all good while Venus is Retrograde although you may change your mind by March so nothing too drastic or permanent.

Venus is the EMPRESS #3 in the TAROT and PLUTO is SCORPIO #13 the Death Card

After the last of three conjunctions on March 3. Venus and her lover Mars both enter Aquarius and unite at 0 degrees the same degree as the famous JUPITER SATURN conjunction of December 21, 2020.

For those with Planets, or placements at 0 degrees Aquarius + or minus 5 degrees {25 Capricorn- 5+ Aquarius} the hard testing and letting go of old values, love and money will be worth it if you stay inventive, pioneering, and take a detached higher consciousness approach.

Venus is named after the Greek Goddess of women, love, the arts, relationships, sex, luxury and harmony. Venus was traditionally the Goddess of LOVE and WAR, JUSTICE as ruler of LIBRA and the ARTS ruler of TAURUS. She had been associated with peace, love, counselling, and the Inner Feminine Divine Feminine energies.

VENUS Retrograde with PLUTO is for women to remember the POWER OF THE GODDESS, THE DIVINE MOTHER, call her Mary, Mary Magdalene, Isis, Kali she has thousands of names worldwide. Remembers when the GODDESS was the one source the birth giver, the natural one to worship along with Our Mother The Earth. Have you ever seen a young baby nursing at its mothers’ breast gaze into its mom’s face? That is a human witnessing the Goddess. Every human who has ever lived has experienced the Goddess! She is known as VENUS. Issues about earth resources and her beauty and caring for her above big business will be strengthened. Love versus POWER is what this is all about.

Venus-Pluto brings up love and worshipping fascists, dictators, strong people who have power. It brings up heavy obsessions about love, controlling others, needing to be right and in control.

Venus Retrograde may make us regret past relationships, the once that got away, but we need to empower ourselves to what the soul purpose was for that relationship. Yes you will hear from old lovers, ex’s and women friends and business colleagues again.

Venus Retro with Pluto requires tearing down the old, renovating and recycling relationships and knowing what resources of love and power are for you.

SEXUAL ENERGY

This is intensely sexual energy, don’t be surprised to have strong hate/love feelings come up. Repressed desires demand to be expressed. Anger or rage and frustration may come out as dominance. You may be tempted to manipulate others with sex or try to manifest stuff with masturbation but that is misuse of sacred sex.

WOMEN need to mindfull that these energies brings out raw lust rapist tendencies and possession of women’s bodies. There may be massive shootings or killings of women by CHADS

It’s a great time for deep intense body work and therapeutic soul-making in the valley of death and shadows. It would be a good time to write and explore all these taboo feelings and subjects.

This transit will help us uproot at the deepest muddiest levels what went wrong and right in past relationships. Dive deep and be fearless in facing your own shadows the parts that you didn’t want to take ownership if before, Capricorn is all about maturity responsibility. Pluto wants you to follow your truest most soulful wealth and desires and love yourself enough to simply do that. It’s almost like a life review.

This transit can take us and lovers to the deepest levels of intimacy not only sexual but naked soul to soul connections. Can we be lovable when we are in our darkest wildest most split off aspects? Can we trust another will love these ugly unacceptable parts of us?If we ask these questions we find out the diamond encrusted heart truths or the shit and refuse as Pluto rules both. We need to love it all ours and our partners and friends and see that we all have these shadow aspects. They are only dangerous when unconscious and suppressed then they run us and we project out our need to feel in control onto the government and give our power away.

Do the deep dark nitty gritty work now. The forces are with us. Note the US 1st Pluto return occurs while Venus is in Capricorn. There will be major upheavals.There are only two emotions LOVE or FEAR and LOVE VERSUS POWER or FORCE CHOOSE WISELY.

Look to where and how these transits are affecting you. please see my video of tarot card readings for all signs.

Saturnalia Celebration, December 17-24, freedom from slavery

Minerva and Saturn protect Art and Science of envy and falsehood 1644

Joachim von Sandrart, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

Saturnalia Celebration is here, an occasion of wild revelry. Celebrate the Lord of the Rings.

Happy Saturnalia! The ancient Roman festival was celebrated on December 17-24.

The best part of the Saturnalia (for slaves) was the temporary reversal of roles. Masters served meals to their slaves who were permitted the unaccustomed luxuries of leisure and gambling. Clothing was relaxed and included the peaked woollen cap that symbolized the freed slave, which looks an awful lot like you know who’s peaked red hat . A member of the familia (family plus slaves) was appointed,” Lord of Misrule”.

Men were allowed to express their homosexual feelings in public. There was a huge element of satire and FOOL-ery, or scapegoating a term which relates to the sign of Capricorn which is the sign that the SOL or SUN enters on the Solstice.

The Roman poet Catullus said it was “the best of days.” there was gift-giving, constant partying, and wax or pottery figures called sigillaria were made.

During Saturnalia the people wore a special cap called a pileus-like a pileated woodpecker’s crest, made from felt which signified a freed Slave. It was also a bronze military helmet in the 5th Century BC. A similar one is used today in Albania and Kosovo.

 SATURNALIA, an Ancient Roman Festival, was originally celebrated on Dec 17 but in spite of opposition became so popular it ran till Dec 24.The Saturnalia was originally celebrated in Ancient Rome for only a day, but it was so popular it soon it lasted a week, despite Augustus’ efforts to reduce it to three days, and Caligula’s, to five. Like our Christmas, this important holy day was for more than fun and games. The Saturnalia was a time to honor the god of sowing and reaping, Saturn. But like our Christmas, it was also a festival day on which a public banquet was prepared.  A statue of Saturn Lord of Time/ was usually bound in Rope but at his feast, the statue was unbound.

Saturnalia Was the Best Part of the Roman Year

The poet Catullus describes Saturnalia as the best of days. It was a time of celebration, visits to friends, and gift-giving, particularly of wax candles (cerei), and earthenware figurines (Sigillaria). The Romans had a story that an old prophecy btold the earliest inhabitants of Latium -a place in ancient Italy to send heads to Hades and phota to Saturn. The ancient Latins interpreted this to mean human sacrifices, but, according to legend, Hercules advised using lights (phos means “light” or “man” according to accent) and not human heads. Taking the holiday out of a gristley head hunting Saturnine influence to one of celebrating the return of the Light.

Macrobius, in his Saturnalia, creates an imaginary symposium among pagan intellectuals in which he offers an explanation for the varying length of the holiday. Originally, it was celebrated on only one day, the fourteenth before the Kalends of January. With the reform of the Julian calendar,  two days were added to December, and the Saturnalia was celebrated sixteen days before the Kalends (December 17), “with the result that, since the exact day was not commonly known—some observing the addition which Caesar had made to the calendar and others following the old usage—the festival came to be regarded as lasting for more days than one.

The original day now was given over to the Opalia, honouring Ops, who personified abundance and the fruits of the earth, and was the consort of Saturn. As the two deities represented the produce of the fields and orchards, so they also were thought to represent heaven and earth. It was for this reason, says Macrobius (I.10.20), that the two festivals were celebrated at the same time, the worshipers of Ops always sitting in prayer so that they touched the earth, mother of all. I was struck by the etymological simile of Opalia, Goddess of abundance and Oprah’s name. Name destiny is a very important signifier for me.

The Saturnalia had a direct influence on the celebrations of Christmas and the New Year. The fact that Christmas was celebrated on the birthday of the unconquered sun (dies solis invicti nati) gave the season a solar background, connected with the kalends of January 1, the Roman New Year when houses were decorated with greenery and lights, and presents were given to children and the poor.

Saturn’s metal is lead and its color is black. Black is the absence of light. The rays emitted by Saturn are of a violet color. Black is a calming color for agitated persons and is also known for its protective properties.

Saturn represents the forces of limitations and restrictions both in time and space providing the structure without which existence would dissolve into chaos. Saturn rules the bones and especially the knees- to which Capricorn’s are prone to have trouble with.

Saturn/Satan became equated with the Devil in latter Christian mythology. Two of the most foul-smelling herbs, asafoetida and valerian, have been used for millennia in rites of banishment and exorcism and are powerful antispasmodics, acting to limit and sedate potentially damaging overflows of energy in medicines. Other Saturnine herbs are patchouli, cypress, and the yew tree.

Other herbs of Saturn: rosemary, dill and St. John’s wort are also antispasmodics, working principally on the nervous and digestive systems. 

Solomon’s Seal and Hyssop bear fruit of an indigo color of Saturn and the flowers of garlic are sterile. Garlic is a great limiter in terms of internal infection as well as eliminating worms.  garlic is widely credited as a preventative against a variety of diseases including Bubonic Plague. It regularizes the liver and gall bladder while Rosemary stimulates bile production and has a limiting effect on the circulatory system, lowering blood pressure and combating arteriosclerosis. It seems obvious that the Saturnian medical principles of essential healing agents are at times difficult to swallow.

Saturn is called SATI in Sanskrit the root word of our English.

Remember how ancient Christmas celebrations are always based on the SUN and the SOLSTICE primarily. The Christians had to overlay the new Kid on the block Jesus’ story on the ancient celebration or it wouldn’t fly.

Dec. 11 VENUS CONJUNCT PLUTO at 25 degrees 19 minutes

Venus in Capricorn rules wealth and so does PLUTO.

This is a big deal energy. Venus is LOVE and PLUTO is SOUL POWER, Carl Jung said there are only two emotions Love or FEAR. These two connect and oppose each other. The FINANCIAL big high day will be followed with an equal and opposite and even worse low day. I am predicting big financial crashes, a major change in the structures of big finance. Saturn the ruler of these energies pulls things down to reality. Love struggles can crash and burn a necessary purging effect.

If you have planets conjunct this degree from 20-29 CAPRICORN get ready for a HUGE impact financially romantically career wise, Everything is set to be totally demolished for you to rise like a PHOENIX from the Rubble.

If you have any CARDINAL planets/ Angels. Nodes, etc at 20-29 ARIES, CANCER and LIBRA you will also feel the effects of this ATOMIC LOVE BOMB.

If your birthday is today it will be a huge year for you in love and money but can also signify a death and rebirth
