Temple Astrolog: Snow storms and coven meetings

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.
