We are wrapping up the year of 2018, a Nature year in Dagara cosmology which signifies that each one of us has been through great transformation. Nature is always in flux, shifting and growing, shedding and renewing. Astrologically 2018 offered the transitions of Chiron into Aries and Uranus into Taurus, a summer of retrogrades, 5 eclipses, Venus Retrograde in the Fall and the shifting of the Nodes of Fate from the Leo/Aquarius axis to the Cancer Capricorn axis. As we are sealing this year of extremes, we have the opportunity for great healing as we shed old identities in preparation for 2019.
2019 heralds the Mineral year in Dagara cosmology. Mineral is the Element where memory is stored. Memories that house our wellspring of creativity, our stories, our archetypal nature, our ability to conjure great resources. This Mineral year is asking each one of us to write our stories, to build that which is ready to be birthed through words, symbols and our actions. Our bones, teeth, hair, nails all carry the mineral element. Bones are like stones. The planet Saturn is deeply connected to the Mineral kingdom and this feels especially fitting for 2019 as Saturn and Pluto are awakening each one of us to the core of who we are.
The master teacher planet Saturn continues to explore his home sign of Capricorn and will meet Pluto in Capricorn twice in 2019 and once in early 2020. We are entering a new phase of reality and an opportunity to grow like never before. This work ahead will be the beginning of what we have been in training for since 2011.
Together we are birthing a new dawn. The last time these two planets came together was in 1518 when Martin Luther began the protestant reformation. 2019 is going to demand that each one of us walks with strength, with clarity and with purpose. Daily practices that were non negotiable prior to 2019 will be downright necessary to thrive. We are being asked to drop all distractions, to create deeper connections as we continue on the paths of transformation. It will be necessary for each one of us to face our inner and outer Truths. As we do so, we will create a real sense of belonging. Community will be essential for creative solutions to living on Earth, as community is necessary for our continued expansion. In next week’s Venusian Love Notes I will unveil a special opportunity for you to create more wisdom and discipline in your lives for this year ahead.
If you are local to the Asheville area, you are cordially invited to gather in my temple living room next Thursday for our Women’s Wisdom circle on the Dark Moon in Capricorn. We will go deep into the astrology for the Capricorn Lunar cycle, which is in many ways like a hologram for the entire year of 2019. This first New Moon of the year comes in with a Solar Eclipse and a powerhouse of Capricorn energy that is ready to help you build what is essential to succeed in 2019.
In the beauty way,
