Temple Astrolog: A difficult passage

There is a big energy building up right now and I believe it is felt by everyone, even those who usually do not describe themselves as sensitive, or tuned into the stars. Right now we have many planets and placements in Capricorn: Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, the Sun, and the south node are all there together. Capricorn is the third of the earth signs and it is usually felt very physically and directly. Because the sign is ruled by Saturn—also called “the great taskmaster”—it is easy to feel overwhelmed by this energy. All the things that you need to do, all unfinished projects and obligations, are piling up now with the demanding energy of Capricorn around every corner.

Carving out a Masterpiece

But there is another side to Capricorn and Saturn as well, and that is the power of manifestation and harvest. If you are ready to put in the hard work that is called for, you can have a great harvest later. It’s like carving out a masterpiece from a big block of stone. So if you are creating something, or working on a project, don’t give up! Keep on working and hold that future masterpiece in your mind. You can do it.

Sometimes Saturn is pictured as “the guardian at the gate” showing you a very tight and narrow door as the only option to go any further. To be able to enter that door and pass through it you have to let go of many of the things you carry with you. If you hold on to them, you will simply not make it to the next level of awareness or stage of your life’s journey.

On a personal and collective plane we are all working on that right now. “What do I need to let go of to be able to proceed to the next step? What old beliefs are hindering me from stepping into the new?” Good news is that we are not alone in this process. To help us we have the north node in Cancer. That gives us love, hope, and support. Cancer is also about family, and the people who support you and who you want to be. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from your friends and loved ones during this transit. You may be surprised how much they can help you.

Capricorn and Saturn is also about protection and safety. This is a wonderful time to check out the alarm system around your house. Go over the doors and windows and make sure that they are functioning as they should. Check the tires of your car and the brakes.

Take a look at your insurance policy and make sure everything is in order. Things have a tendency to break apart with these constellations. Everything from bones, backs, and teeth (ruled by Saturn) to cars and machines in the home. The things that we use daily.

For a magickal person this is a perfect time for protection work and recharging the wards around yourself, your home, family, and your car.

When working with protection we also have the opportunity to help others who are in need of protection and safety. Perhaps you will have the chance to become someone’s guardian angel this week?

This energy will build towards the full moon on the 21st of January, when we also will have a Super-Moon, a total lunar eclipse, and a blood moon!

With Saturn (blockages) so close to Mercury (communication) in Capricorn it can be very difficult to communicate in a good way. Instead of talking, try to show how you feel with action instead. Do practical things to show your love and support, and be open to others doing the same thing for you as well. This Saturn/Mercury energy will end around January 18th.

Blessings!

Lilith Black Moon (what we cannot see) is right next to the asteroid Vesta (devotion) in the sign of Aquarius. This means it is really hard to figure out what is going on in the collective right now. Vesta is all about that inner fire and sparkle. Things that we hold close to us and find worthy of both devotion and protection. With this constellation we can get really fiery about how wrong others are, or we can take the other side and feel that everybody else is doing so much better than we are.

But the thing is that we cannot see them, or ourselves, clearly because of Lilith Black Moon. This can cause a lot of tension and turbulence in communities and organizations. It’s a bit like trying to have a coven meeting in the middle of a snow storm. No one sees anything and it’s quite impossible to join hands. My best advice right now is to stay in the warmth of your home, be devoted to your own practice and try to figure things out on your own until the storm passes. Don’t get lost in others’ social media or practises. Things are not what they seem to be right now. This transit is until the end of January and is most intense right now.

There are some beautiful healing energies flowing right now. Chiron (healing) in Pisces is in a grand trine with Ceres (mother, nurturing) in Scorpio and the north node in Cancer. This is a wonderful opportunity for self-care, relaxing, and making good and healthy plans for the future. Together with Venus that has just entered the sign of Sagittarius it is perfect for taking long baths and reading good books.

It’s quite tough out there right now with many planets in Capricorn. Mercury, Saturn, Sun, Pluto, and the south node are all in that sign. So take all the opportunities you have to recharge yourself and your family, you will need it to get through this January. Extra heads up on the Sun passing by Pluto in Capricorn this week. Don’t be over-dramatic, think twice before making any decisions, and drive carefully.

Blessings!

2019 Numerology: Sunshine and Surprises

The year 2019 vibrates to the number 3 (2+0+1+9=12, 1+2=3) the Empress card in Tarot (the Mother) and the color yellow. Number 3 is fun, fast-moving and has a light vibration most of the time. It is the “easy go” number and it loves the feeling of when things are flowing in harmony. People with number 3 as a life lesson number are easy to talk to and they know a lot of people. You often find them as teachers, hairdressers, dancers, singers, makeup artists, musicians, and stylists to name a few.

Many born under the influence of number 3 also make the longest spiritual journeys during their life. They may start out living a party life where all that matters is having the right clothes and knowing the right people, and end up as ministers or meditation teachers. With the universal year as number 3, we can expect a lot of spiritual and personal development this year. People taking unexpected turns and making sudden changes in their lives.

Energetically the number 3 has a “wake up” energy. First you have the number 1, the “me” number , and then the number 2, the “we” number that creates a kind of balance, and then the number 3 comes along and everything changes. Everyone who is a parent knows what I’m talking about here! It is wonderful to have your first child, but you just can’t imagine the change it brings to your life before it happens. The same thing can be said about number 3. Yes, it has all of that sunshine that comes with yellow: the fun, the laughter, the friends, the party, and the glitter. But it also has the transformative energy that brings you growth pain and the pain of labour. It’s all worth it in the end, but it can be hard to remember when you are in the middle of it. So let’s take a deeper look at the numbers:

The Grail Knight and the Quest

If we look more in detail of the numbers of 2019 we find many interesting things. (20+19 =39, 3+9=12, 1+2=3) Number 39 is the number of the Grail Knight and the quest for higher meaning (the Knight of Cups). People born with this number have a great imagination. As kids they were different, like they lived parts of their lives in their own bubble. Sometimes that made them lonely and outsiders, but in this world of their own they made strong connections to other things and other worlds. By seeing things differently (number 12 and the Hanged Man in Tarot) they have the key to unlock many hidden things and the power to solve many mysteries. As grown ups we see them as great actors, producers, mystics, writers, and artist of all kinds. This year is therefore a great year for anyone living a creative life, or wanting to be more creative in their everyday life. Ultimately, 39 is about finding your true tribe, your kind of people and daring to show your true self.

This year we will be challenged to go out on a limb to reach for the fruit. To hang upside down and find a new perspective. To find love again and to restore hope.

The Golden Boy

If you have added the numbers up and read the beginning of this article you now know that this is the year of number 3. But what about 19? Does it have any significance at all? Well, it has importance and it will influence us, more in a collective and universal way.

The number 19 is the number of the golden boy. It is the Sun card in the Tarot. In Numerology it is the special person or that thing you have been longing for, what you have searched to find for a long time. The power of 19 is wonderful and fantastic. It holds a lot of energy, joy, and celebration. But there is another side to it, and that is the danger of putting our joy, our power, and happiness outside of ourselves. The danger of making someone a saviour and the solution to all of our problems. In terms of politics, religion, and science we have to look out for that this year. Instead of making it all about one person or one solution, we do better to find broader solutions and work together with more people, as this year comes out with the number 3. In terms of work and finances you do best not to put all of your eggs in the same basket.

What We Leave Behind

It is always good to look back before moving on into the future. We are now leaving the year of 2018 behind us. The numerology vibration of 2018 has been 38 (20+18=38, 3+8=11, 1+1=2). A year with the number 11, a master number that has presented us with many challenges, but also with a lot of growth, personally and in our relationships. The number 11 is the light-bearer and is always asking about the truth. What is the truth? And how do I know if someone is lying to me? And what about lying to myself? And then there is the bigger truth about the world and were it is going?

There have been a lot of ups and down, as it always is with the number 11 and the number 2. So it’s no wonder many of us are ready to leave 2018 and step into the next year! But is has not all been bad. The vibration of 38/11/2 is the Tarot card of the Queen of Cups. She is highly intuitive, compassionate, and has the capacity to move between the worlds. If you feel connected to that card in some way, if you are working as a priestess, intuitive, or a counsellor, then this year has probably been somewhat challenging for you. But as time moves on and you look back at this year, you will find that these hard lessons and what you have learned will serve you well in the future. You will not be easily fooled or lied to. You have a deeper sense of who you are and what you want in your relationships.

A Bright Look Into the Future

With this I wish you a fantastic year ahead with lots of joy, creativity, and fun. May you find your tribe, fall in love or fall deeper and find new perspective. May you not be trapped into only believing in one solution, but seeing many. May you be gifted with the answer to a question so many before us have asked in the quest: “Whom does the grail serve?”

Many blessings, and a Happy New Year!

Temple Astrolog: Kiss and make up…or not?

The stars are certainly up for a good party! Despite Sun and Saturn joined in Capricorn (a little boring) Mars and Chrion in Pisces are in a grand trine with Venus and Ceres in Scorpio and the north node in Cancer stirring up some romantic energy.

This creates a good feeling and a tendency to be forgiving and seeing the best in people. With that Venus in Scorpio flirting with Mars in Pisces, ou lala! That old ex-boy or -girlfriend shines a little bit extra and you may feel like calling or texting them, or that handsome person from work. You may very well wake up in the wrong bed next morning wishing that you did not have that extra glass of wine or champagne the night before!

Sometimes it’s good to let go and follow the flow (Venus) and sometimes it’s good to follow reason (Saturn). Perhaps you will feel the pull of both of them this magickal night? Only the gods knows what will happen. Stay safe and follow your heart, and don’t forget to ask your angels for assistance if needed. Both Archangel Michael (protection) and the angels of romance will have quite a busy night.

Happy new year!

Temple Astrolog: Opening the vaults of heaven

If you are searching for answers right now, you can turn your energy towards the upper worlds and work with Jupiter and Mercury, joined together in the sign of Sagittarius. This has the power to open the vaults of heaven. This is a wonderful aspect for anyone involved in writing, research, and teaching. Bright ideas may come from this, so don’t forget to write them down as you may not remember them later.

This also brings a happy energy to the Christmas and Yule celebrations. It can be easy to get carried away by this positive energy that brings a brighter outlook on life, but If you are signing any contracts during this transit please be careful and make sure that you read the fine print and details.

This transit is until 27-28th of December.

This Christmas there are some other things that may be good to know. The Asteroid Vesta (the inner flame, priest/priestess) is together with Lillith Black Moon (what we cannot see) in Aquarius (community). This can create a feeling of being an outsider, even with your closest family, partners, and friends. Don’t pay too much attention to this right now, observe and let it pass. You do not have the complete picture right now and cannot trust what you feel.

We also have Mars together with Chiron in Pisces, this can trigger hidden anger and frustration as they make a square to the sun in Capricorn. If you decide to act and confront someone, make sure it has to do with this person and that it is not something from the collective field causing turbulence and stress. Please remember that children and pets cannot choose their environment like adults can, so it is our job to keep them safe.

To create a warm and welcoming Christmas and Yule we do best to tune in to the generous and benevolent Jupiter, mentioned above.

Blessings and, as we say in Sweden, God Jul!

Temple Astrolog: The eyes of the oracle

The asteroid Ceres (the great mother) is together with Venus in the sign of Scorpio. This is excellent for anyone interested in scrying, oracle-reading, and divining the future. You might need to be a bit careful though, as Scorpio is the ruler of the underworld and you can get in deeper than you planned. This is amplified by a trigon to Neptune in Pisces opening up to new worlds and dimensions with ease, but not so clear on boundaries and closing the gates afterwards. But by using extra protection and working “by the book” you should be fine. If you are extra-sensitive or have sensitive children now is the time to recharge your talismans for protection and safety from unwanted attention or energies. This transit is until 8th of January and is extra strong the 25th and 26th of December. Perfect for Yule scrying and oracle reading!

Temple Astrolog: Get that thing moving

Mars, the planet of movement and energy, has been in the sign of Pisces since mid-November, and he is not happy there. He is also joined by Neptune and that brings even more water to his fire. This makes it hard to feel energized and enthusiastic. It is easy to blame others for delays and stagnation and that is something that should be avoided.

But now there is help coming in as the sun makes a square to fiery Sagittarius. Hooray! So get things moving right away. Sign up at the gym, and start that project that you have been thinking about. Focus your energy and move ahead. Luckily this aspect is holding on until midwinter when the sun moves in to Capricorn and soon after that on January 2nd, Mars moves ahead into Aires, his home sign and he can start to breath fire again.

Temple Astrolog: Moving in a new direction

The nodes of the moon have moved into new signs (November 16th) and are creating a wave of change and transformation in our lives. For some people it can feel like a great relief that finally things are moving, and for others it can create a lot of tension.

The north node, also called the dragon’s head, shows us a place of focus for moving ahead and fulfilling our destiny. The north node has moved into the sign of Cancer and that puts things like relationships, nurturing, parenting, healing, home and family, goddess work, magick, and all things related to the moon into focus. We need to work with that energy in harmony to move forward. It will become apparent what is draining your energy and what is nurturing you. My suggestion is to work with the things that build you up and make you happy.

On the opposite side, the south node, also called the dragon’s tail, shows us where we came from and what could be a drawback right now. The south node is in Capricorn, ruled by Saturn and that old guy doesn’t like change. It asks us what old things and belief systems are we holding on to? Doing something just because it has always been done that way is not working anymore.

The south node is called a karma point and Saturn ruling Capricorn is called the Lord of Karma, so we have a double karma thing going on. If you feel stuck, doing things like regression therapy can be really helpful. On the bright side, we can all get some help right now removing old blocks and karma.

If done right after this transit we will have created a better balance between work and family, rights and obligations, within and without and learned to live in a more balanced way in our relationships.

The last time the nodes were in this position was from April 2000 until October 2001. So it is wise to go back in time and check out what you did then. What changes did you make? What happened in your relationships? Did you move in a new direction? All of this will be clues about what to expect in this period. This transit started November 16, 2018, and will last until May 2020.

Temple Astrolog: A golden arrow

On November 26th, the Sun meets with Jupiter in Sagittarius, and you have the opportunity to shoot a golden arrow of luck, happiness, fulfillment, and joy straight into the future! To help with this we also have Mercury close by. But Mercury, also known, as Hermes can sometimes be a trickster. So make sure that you ask for what you really want and that you understand what you are asking for. Even Mars and Aries are involved, making a square from the sign of Pisces. This can give fuel for our arrow, but it can also make us wonder if we really deserve the good things in life? But if you can pull your energy together, focus on the good things, and fill your heart with it, you can make a wonderful ceremony or meditation and shoot that wonderful light into the future. This window is open from around the 23rd of November until around 29th of November and it peaks on the 26th and the 27th.

Blessings and best of luck!

Temple Astrolog: Should I stay or should I go?

Relationships are in focus now with Venus in Libra in opposition with Uranus in Aries, and this has been going on for a while now. Venus wants to be civilized, especially in Libra. But Uranus in Aries wants revolution and freedom. To complicate things further, the asteroid Ceres (the great mother) is joining Venus right now. She asks, how will you nurture yourself on your own? How will you survive? So we are torn between the longing for freedom and the need for security. But the truth is that we can nurture ourselves. We can function on our own, and we don’t have to start a war or a revolution to prove it.

For people loving green things and working with plants, herbs, and healing this is a very interesting period when you can find new combinations of plants and healing remedies. Uranus challenges Venus and Ceres the Earth Mother. So a little heads up here, the new remedies are probably coming from the frustration of not finding what you needed in the first place, with medicines not working as usual. So don’t give up! Go in deeper and you might find some golden new inventions. And as always, don’t forget to write the recipes down!

The opposition between Venus and Uranus is until the beginning of December.

Blessings!
