“Light Me Up But Don’t Strike Me Down”
The Astrology of 2023 & Beyond
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 ~ Feb 5 – Mar 7

““Fathom Your Faith,
The Tides Are Changing
It’s Better To Dive Deep
Because Shallow Dwellers
Will Wash Out To Sea”

This next moon cycle is a journey of going deep into our spiritual realms- faith, trust, dharma, mystery, and questing. The chaotic and liminal times of the past 3 years are now coming to a marked tidal shift from the material/mundane world to the Spiritual dimensions. These realms have always been here but the collective frequency is now delving into the them and acknowledging a higher consciousness. This is a time to stand up in our mastery, and embark on our personal and collective Dharma. Going deep will be an anchor to the Soul and also to the new constellations of community. Those who stay shallow will find these times very turbulent and treacherous. Now is the time to Fathom your Faith, return to the ancient and perennial ways, and create deep connections with your community. 

The Snow Moon and Leo Full Moon start the cycle on Feb 5. This time is marked as a mystical shift on the wheel of life as it is the full moon associated with Imbolc and the half way point between Winter and Spring. We get a full illumination of what we seeds and visions we are being called to prepare for in the spring. Use this potent full moon to do ceremony, meditate and connect to the Earth and Water. Uranus squares this full moon and brings in the element of Lightning and Revelation. Sudden and unknown realizations my electrify the field at this time. 

Mercury conjoins Pluto at the final critical degree of Capricorn on Feb 10. Mercury the  psychopomp journeys into the realm of the Soul. There is a crucial message wanting to be heard from the Soul. Check your personal astrology chart and see where 29° of Capricorn sits. What House? What other aspects are near? There is an essential communique here from the Soul. 

Next Day, Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius on Feb 11. That Soul message emerges into the Aquarian energy- how will you share this with the collective? You are the one you have been waiting for! You know. Be innovative and explore your genius. Fathom your faith and trust that you carry the Promethean fire within you. Each one of us is being called to share our insights and creative spark with the whole. 

Venus conjoins Neptune on Feb 15 in Pisces. Love and values meet Great Spirit. Align with your Dharma and with your Spiritual Path. This will protect you and lead you into the faith of the deep waters. Being shallow and aligning with fear will call in more of what you don’t want. Find your faith and fall in love with the World again. 

Sun conjoins Saturn on Feb 16. This happens once a year and starts a new cycle of the personal self with the Wisdom Elder. Plant your staff on the ground and tune into your Wisdom body. Be the author of your life and follow your inner Authority of the Soul. 

Sun enters Pisces on Feb 18, followed by a Piscean New Moon on Feb 19. Pisces is the sign of the Beyond, The Depths, The Ocean, Great Spirit, and the Universe of Nature. This marks the noticeable shift into deep waters. Pay attention to your dreams, be in Nature, pray, listen to the messages of the Old Ones and the the Ancestors. The perennial wisdom of the Earth and Stars is returning to the those who are ready. Open your heart now and trust. 

Mercury squares Uranus and trines Mars on Feb 21/22. Do what your Soul and and your intuition are guiding you to do. At first is may seem challenging, but once you commit you will find flow and support, and possibly even Joy!

Venus conjoins Jupiter on Mar 1 in Aries. March is going to be quite the month and this will set the tone- Love for the Vision Quest ahead. Lead with Love and follow your faith, your dharma, and your Soul’s quest for you. 

Mercury conjoins Saturn at the 29° of Aquarius and then goes into Pisces on Mar 2.  This is another crucial place to reference in your own astrology chart. This is a big message about your Soul’s purpose at this time and how it is being called into the great collective. Then, pray and meditate on it. 

Venus conjoins Chiron in Aries on Mar 3.  Love and Values meet the Master Teacher, Rainbow Bridge and Wounded-Healer. “Love is the way is the way to connect to everything.” ~ Rumi. Fathom your Faith and go deep into the Heart. Now is the time. See you are the Virgo Full Moon and the magical month of March.
