“Light Me Up But Don’t Strike Me Down”
The Astrology of 2023 & Beyond

Recorded and Ready to Watch Now!

2023 is a year of illuminating and awakening energies particularly from the Universal Collective and Spiritual Law. While radical and possibly chaotic, it could be a year of great evolution in consciousness. Pluto- the planet of the Soul and Spirit- will dip it’s big toe into the Sign of Aquarius for the first time since its last visit between 1778 and 1797. Aquarius is the sign of Awakening the Personal self to the deeper Soul awareness and ruled by Uranus the planet of Radical and Unpredictable shifts. For those who are ready, this can be an exciting time, but it is only a 2 month view before Pluto goes back to Capricorn until January 21, 2024 where it will then take a permeant visit of 2 decades. And the thing with Aquarius is that it is call to everyone to rise and evolve~ not just some.

Saturn will also make a major shift into Pisces from March 2023- Feb 2026. Joining up with Neptune who is there on an 15 year journey (2011-2026). Saturn will now be in the House of Spirit with its ruler and guardian. This could be a return to the ancient ways of wisdom, Cosmic Practices and Consciousness, Spiritual Law, and an understanding of our place in the Universe.

Jupiter will start the year in Aries but transition into Taurus in May to conjoin the North Node of Evolution in the final degrees before itself shifts into Aries. This is is a profound conjunction on May 30. Jupiter in Taurus is putting into practical use and action our Visions, Truths, Beliefs and Wisdom.

The Karmic Nodes of Fate will shift from Taurus & Scorpio to Aries & Libra in July and start a new 18.6 month journey of evolution for the collective and individuals. We will also experience 4 Eclipses, 4 Mercury Retrogrades, and be stepping into the year of the Water Rabbit on Jan 21. The Water Rabbit is related to Pisces, Neptune and Jupiter so this will give an extra boost to the Spiritual Awakening and Evolution.

The planet Uranus will be delivering lightning bolt calls to awaken. For those on the path our job will be to stand in our illumination and use our own path of our Soul’s Purpose to help others awaken too. Let this be a year of illumination.

Learn about greater cycles of time that are now unfolding that are referenced by the Greeks, The Yogis, The Mayans, and the Lakota. We’ll also cover the quantum physics and evolutionary states of consciousness and how these transitional events will play out for each. We will share tools and practices that may be helpful to navigate these unfolding energies and times. And, we we will look at the astrology of 2023 through 2025 and beyond.

The Cosmic Download ~ Dec 7 – Jan 6

“It’s not Either/Or…It’s Yes And More

This cycle of full moons starts with with Gemini Full Moon on Dec 7 and ends with the Cancer Full Moon on Jan 6- from the head to the heart. It’s only 10 inches to travel but it’s the longest journey you’ll ever take, so said in the Lakota wisdom. When we first look at the energies and aspects of this lunar month, our first reaction was yikes! But when we sat with it more, we saw that there was a rhythm to the waves- an up and a down. So what my seem challenging, might be an opportunity needing some nurturing and love to blossom. And, there are plenty of opportunities to see our shadow-side this month. This is always an invitation to do our spiritual work to heal, particularly around judgements in the mind that are creating duality of this and that and either/or. The dark places are where there is treasure in the Soul waiting be discovered again. Drop into your hearts, let go of Judgements, and Fall in Love with the World again. Here, you will find the magic and the middle road through the duality. Balance. And from this place of balance we may discover that our world is not either/or, it’s Yes and More!   

The Gemini Full Moon will be conjunct Mars, illuminating how our mind is understanding of our own Masculine energies. Harmonic masculine energy is Open Hearted, Kind, Generous, Potent, Focused and Present. Are you balanced in this Yang energy? Bring the intellect and thinking self to the feeling and intuitive heart. There you will find courage, vulnerability and authenticity. These three virtues are what allows us to Open our Hearts and be Present. 

On Dec 9, Venus will square Jupiter and then Venus will move into Capricorn. Venus is Self-Love, Values, and our Resources. Jupiter is our Beliefs, Trustworthiness, and Visions of the Future. The square is challenging us to let go of limiting Self beliefs. Simple to understand, but dynamic to do. Ask yourself where you have absolutes in your life. Meditate on why these things are absolutes. Perhaps you will discover that those rigid judgements are blocking you from the Yes and More. Venus in Capricorn can give you the determination and resolve to heal these energies. 

Sun squares Neptune on Dec 14. The personal self encounters the Spiritual Truth and Law. This is how you share your vales in the outward world. As compared to Venus, which is how you know your values within your own heart. So now, it is the inverse. You are being asked to take a stand and be your Spiritual Vales in the external world. Be who you know yourself to be within, and shine it out into the world. Don’t concern yourself with the inner voice that says, but I may be rejected or ridiculed. This may be an old limiting belief. You also may be accepted, supported and perhaps more…

Mercury squares Chiron and then Trines Uranus between Dec 15 & 17. First we look at our wounds around communication, language and the mind- particularly around our masculine energy (a repeated theme). Then, we have a supportive energy to heal and transform that long time wound. Now is the time to do the work. 

Jupiter moves into Aries on Dec 20 and the Sun moves into Capricorn on Dec 21 for the Winter Solstice and Yuletide Celebrations. These are both big shifts of energy and the Solstice marks the sacred transition form a half year of the light waning, to the rebirth of the Sun and the waxing of the Light for a half year. This eternal cycle (within and without) is told in the story of the Holly King and the Oak King. Take reflection today, rise with the new Sun, do cermeony, and call in the ancient Yuletide traditions of prayer, meditation, connection, community and expressions of Gratitude & Joy. 

Venus trines Uranus and Chiron goes Direct after four months retrograde. Both are at the Capricorn New Moon of Dec 23. This repeats the theme of working with the Wounded Masculine. Heal and rededicate back to the spiritual path of Opening your Heart and allow for the Yes and More. 

Mercury goes retrograde from Dec 29-Jan18 in Capricorn. Consider this a gift from Spirit to help us go inward to reflect during the winter season, and prepare for our rebirth and renewal. Capricorn energy can help with this dedication. Set a sankalpa to write your book, teach the children, and build your vision that you have been holding onto in your heart. Do it Now 🙂 

Venus moves into Aquarius on Jan 2. This is bellwether for the year of 2023 calling in the dawning energies of the Aquarian Age. 2023 is a liminal time where we are rising above the darkness of the past few years (and millennia) to begin expressing into the New Age. Stay balanced and steady. There will still be turbulence, but don’t be caught in the Either/ors. Hold your vision and be the seed keepers of the future. Cultivate Yes and More. See you at the Cancer Full Moon!
