what’s up with career in 2019?: career is actually specific to your own chart. there’s not so much a collective analysis of career. what we can analyze is how collective strucutres around money, commerce, business, exchange, & goods are going to change. 2019 is actually a huge year for that because of Uranus in taurus. taurus literally is a money/earth sign. Uranus brings change/evolution in a radical way. we also have Saturn conjunct Pluto in capricorn, which will be exact in January 2010 but will be building up all of 2019. we’ll have Saturn, the builder of structure & Pluto, god of death/rebirth connecting in capricorn. Saturn rules capricorn, Pluto rules scorpio. so we’ll have these two energies approaching each other, contributing to the changes Uranus in taurus will bring to our relationships to money, business, & how we build structures.
Pluto is bringing deconstruction & death to the ways capricorn energy has been abused in our society. personally, we have a response-ability to change the collective narrative around these things. if you’re subscribing to oppression & capitalism to get your money, it may not go so well. in your embodiment, in your emotional & spiritual approach to these matters— you have to be in right relationships. however, because we live under capitalism, we often have to use it as a tool to survive & that’s facts. we’re not about to use astrology to spiritually bypass with, “the new earth era is here & you’re selfish if you need money to live.”
how to handle Uranus transits?: this is why the houses matter. we know Uranus is about radical change, evolution, chaos— knowing where that’s happening is how you individually are able to be in relationship with it. we know it’s in taurus, so it’s about earth stuff— money, resources, relationship to self. the house that it is in indicates where it’s going to show up.
why was the social emotional tension so extreme in 2018?: Jupiter in scorpio. we’re in the high of Jupiter in sagittarius right now, so it can be easy to forget that from November 2017- November 2018 Jupiter was in scorpio. all this beautiful amplification, blessing, & abundance energy that we’re experiencing now in sagittarius was in scorpio. it was more about exposing. some of you may remember I was offering Exposure session specifically to get folx ready for the area of their life Jupiter in scorpio was going to blow shit up.
collectively, all this shit was coming up. that is the work of Jupiter in scorpio, and it was happening on an individual level too. because it is Jupiter, and its nature is benevolent, giving, & generous Jupiter in scorpio also brought gifts to the scorpio area of your life. the publicization of the Me Too Movement was Jupiter in scorpio. as painful & excruciating as that was for many of us to be witness to or to experience, it’s also healing. which is what scorpio does. it exposes & reveals so healing can actually happen. Jupiter in scorpio revealed all this stuff so that it could begin to be addressed, so we could begin to find our healing path, so we could begin to transform. that’s the purpose of scorpio.
Jupiter in scorpio for most of 2018 is definitely part of the WTF because it’s about bringing what’s hidden & unseen to the forefront. with Jupiter, you can’t miss it.
can you say more about the relationship between capricorn & capitalism? because it seems like reimagining economic systems is important: yes, Uranus in taurus will emphasize that but it’s already begun with Pluto in capricorn. it’s been in capricorn for a couple of years already & is part of this push towards reimagining economic systems because under white supremacy kyriarchy they’re so rooted in oppression. they’re not like Indigenous systems of exchange & trade, it’s become something different.
the relationship between Saturn & capitalism is my opinion, not a general astrological consensus— Saturn is concerned with building structures that have longevity, legacy, that sustain. capricorn is an earth sign so it is about business & commerce—economic systems literally fall under Saturn. it is unhealthy/underdeveloped Saturn in capricorn energy that birthed capitalism. it’s focused on profit, sacrificing emotional/spiritual well-being (cancer) for ambition & success by societal definitions of legacy. which under capitalism, is about money.
rethinking economic systems is Pluto in capricorn showing what is toxic & needs to be fixed. that needs to happen before what we imagine can be birthed. because aquarius comes after capricorn. aquarius is imagination in tangible form. after Pluto in capricorn will be Pluto in aquarius. we want linear solutions & success but real life is nonlinear. your “radical purpose” as Turtle Tank describes it, is nonlinear. it’s always changing its manifestation. the intent should be interconnection, well-being, & love (all cancer). it’s deep care & affection but also a way of being that is about everyone’s freedom.
can you say more about Jupiter in sagittarius?: ending the year with this energy is really great because we’re getting into right relationship with abundance, truth, & clarity. we’re restoring our faith, we’re restoring our hope, & receiving blessings. Jupiter in sagittarius for most of 2019 will be our life raft. as always, it depends on your own chart but collectively, its about making meaning & being the light after scorpio. after the surfaced trauma, after the transformation, after the dark. spiritual bypassing happens when we try to skip over the dark into the light. we try to skip over scorpio—we don’t wanna talk about that— but yes, please, we’d love more sagittarius. Jupiter through scorpio brought up all this shit. Jupiter in sagittarius is about how we’re going to live into the truths that were revealed and stay on the path of healing & transformation.
can you say more about the Nodes?: the North Node is our spiritual aim & focus. the South Node are the patterns & skillsets we already know. with the South Node in Capricorn, we already know how to do capitalism, structures & systems, oppression, the narrow path, how to disconnect from our emotional/spiritual well-being in service of an outcome/profit. the North Node in cancer is pulling us into centering self care & cultivating our spiritual/emotional well-being first.
will 2019 be chill or nah?: 2019 is not going to be a WTF year in the same way. every year is WTF in some way. transits are happening in some new part of your life. there are 12 houses & 10 planets rotating, layered on top of your own natal chart. that’s why astrology is helpful because it helps you zoom in on what’s actually happening so it doesn’t just feel like the same ol’ same ol’ over & over again. if it does, you’re not embodying— you’re just intellectualizing.
2019 is going to be way more chill in a lot of ways. it’s an earthy year, Jupiter in sagittarius is great fire energy, cancer eclipses will bring a lot of water. it will be introspective in a more tangible, fruitful way. 2019 is gonna be chiller because earth moves slowly & water tends to move slowly, too. so it won’t be as fiery/airy as dealing with the leo/aquarius eclipses of 2018. it will be a different texture of intensity.
