Because the south node, or karmic position, is in Capricorn, qualities of its energy are most in need of healing over the next eighteen months. Every sign is equivalent in its gifts and deficits. But when a sign is in its south nodal placement it acts up.
For an individual this may suggest a past life wound. Therefore, expect south node Capricorn to trigger collective work through expressions of fear, loneliness and world weariness.
The solution? The nodes, like everything in astrology, is a cycle. To understand the emotional themes of the Cancer-Capricorn polarity in effect until June of we will explore previous similar cycles during the years of and Prediction relies on previous description!
We think of Capricorn energy as the master of competence; the CEO, the leader, the authority. Too much of any energy throws it off balance. Too much Capricorn is relentless ambition; that goat climbing to the point of exhaustion. This theme of loneliness will be a recurrent one over the next year and a half.
Does this sound familiar? Capricorn reflects a pyramidal structure often reflected by the culture of the corporation, big business, government. What is the price of success?
Getting to the top comes with a cost; world-weariness. Consider the Greek myth of Sisyphus who was condemned to an eternity of rolling a boulder uphill then watching it roll back down again as soon as the summit was reached. Talk about frustration! When our best efforts become thwarted by impossible circumstances the negative side of Capricorn kicks in; frustration which leads to despair, desolation and depression.
Fear is another strong negative theme for Capricorn. Why does Capricorn energy struggle so for success?
Because it fears irrelevancy. Chasing the allure of success is motivated by deep sense of inferiority, a fear of not being competent, respected and in control. And so, the shadow side of Capricorn; fear, frustration, isolation, despair, depression and desolation will rear its ugly head over the next 18 months.
Observe these qualities in the collective, and within your own life.
A total solar eclipse took place on December 4, with a magnitude of A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. The New Moon on Thursday, December 26, , at 4° Capricorn is an annular solar eclipse. The solar eclipse December astrology is.
Of course, with every challenge the cosmic language of astrology offers a solution. That balancing energy is Cancer, where the north node unfolds. In contrast, South node Capricorn is the father who coldly sets boundaries without a sense of compassion.
Feel the fear and build your home base anyway. North node Cancer asks us to accept, cultivate and act from our emotional center. Positive Cancer accepts tears, and even fears if they generate from the heart.
Compassion for others comes easier when we feel safe. North node Cancer asks us to cultivate our compassion for others by first taking care of our own security needs; food, clothing and shelter. Cancer is personal. All things domestic may be more in vogue over the next few months. For example, we may see an upswing and interest in the traditional home arts; home cooking, food preservation such as canning, home crafts such as soap and candle making, knitting, and quilt making. The collective consciousness may return to the imago of the nurturing home environment; self-sufficient and safe.
Genealogical research will flourish. Historical novels may become more popular, as will an increased interest in antiques and artifacts. T he eclipse of August 11, hit the headlines because it was visible in the UK. But the effects of this eclipse will last at least another six months, so be prepared for your own private aftershocks.
The next eclipse is on the 21 st January If that's you, expect a situation to come to a head, and to reap success from earlier efforts. It is a time of culmination and fruition.
With the planets Mercury and Neptune involved, anything visionary or artistic, to do with the media and to do with communication is well starred. Other eclipse dates to watch out for are: July 16, a lunar eclipse affecting those born at the end of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries.
A solar eclipse, occurring at a new moon, signifies a new start, while a lunar eclipse, occurring at a full moon is a time of culmination. When eclipses are configured with the outer planets, as they were on August 11, and will be on January 21, , expect huge effects for months to come. When an eclipse affects an individual, whether or not configured with an outer planet, the effects will still last for a considerable time.
The outer planets, Pluto, Neptune and Uranus, move slowly through the zodiac and also have a profound effect on our lives, although generally steadier and longer lasting than eclipses. As we enter the new millennium, Uranus and Neptune are both in Aquarius, and Pluto is in Sagittarius.
Pluto's entry into Sagittarius, a sign associated with publishing, religion, higher education and ethical and global issues, has already seen the collapse of the net publishers agreement, sex scandals within the church, the loss of grants to most students and an increase in public awareness of ethical and moral problems. The Pinochet affair, organic farming, concern about the environment and a decrease in the influence of the church are all part of the shifts in consciousness associated with Pluto in Sagittarius.
On an individual level, those born in the signs Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces are profoundly affected by Pluto's journey through Sagittarius. Their lives have been transformed. Pluto will enter Capricorn in where it remains until We can all expect this to transform our working life. Industry, government, authorities and bureaucracies will be subject to radical change. And individually, those born in the signs of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra will have their own private transformation. Neptune has only recently entered Aquarius and it will stay there until Neptune dissolves whatever it touches and earlier, when it was in Capricorn, we saw the end of communism and upheavals in Eastern Europe.
