Greetings Star Seeds!
We are under the influence of some significant astrological energies and how we meet them is going to make a difference. Similarly to how we choose to interact and respond to experiences in life and folks that are in our orbit, we can make a conscious choice to dance with the cosmic energies and take them as opportunities to learn a new choreography or we can sit on the sidelines waiting to be asked to step out onto the dance floor. That being said, sometimes there are no side lines and sometimes our foot gets trampled regardless of how much poise we intend. This is one of those times.
When the sun is in Capricorn, we have an opportunity for maturation and growth. The Sea Goat is hosting a party for some big players this weekend. On the guest list are Saturn, Lord of Karma, who is in his home sign and represents our places of boundary, contraction, responsibility, maturation, and how we relate to time. Pluto, The Great Transformer, joins Saturn on Jan. 12th at 22 °. He represents our relationship to power, and our ability to alchemize and shift. Shadow work and unearthing of taboos will be part of the gathering. The places that can get sticky are where we have abdicated, given away agency and our ability to respond with the wisdom that maturity brings. But, don't be a hater, they are just nudging us toward empowerment and urging us to release and compost what we no longer need to carry forward. This may bring experiences that catalyze and propel us forward in ways we feel not ready for. There may be grief and loss. We may experience cycles that are ending, structures and paradigms that can endure no longer and must be terminated. We can look thru a personal, political, and planetary lens for where these exist. Deep transformation can feel like a total disintegration and the stable ground may look different in the integration process and beyond.
There will be a "Plus 1" on the guest list as Jupiter, associated with Zeus, joins the revelry toting a spirit of fun and adventure but also with the potential to make things bigger and expand. He is also likely to be drunk. Added guests include Mercury, Ceres and Pallas Athena. So how we communicate matters. The ways we nourish ourselves and what we ingest will be highlighted. Do we eat junk food and watch junk news? Or do we listen to our body's wisdom and offer balanced foods that support longevity and endurance? What does our self-talk and narrative look like? Does it need an upgrade? A total overhaul? Where are we spending our energy? Are we strategic in our craft? How does inspiration weave through our lives?
The setting of this soiree will be individual for each of us and will depend on where 22 ° Capricorn falls in your chart. The other planets that grace this house and the aspects they make will add to the party favors and flavors of this time. If you're interested in finding out get in touch with this Cappy gal! Meanwhile, not to be overshadowed (pun intended) we are in eclipse season! The lunar eclipse on January 10th in the sign of Cancer invites us to pay attention to our internal parent. We may need to re-parent ourselves so that our lives flow better. Eclipses bring revelations and insights so don't doubt the importance of sustaining a spiritual practice even if the results are not immediately visible.
The seeds that we plant now have the potential to reverberate beyond this amplified and challenging period. This party is likely to be messy. So come as you are and spend it with Kristin Jamieson and myself integrating all our parts, releasing holding patterns, and stepping into soulful embodiment on our journey toward wholeness and healing and self-empowerment. Sunday Jan. 12 1-4 pm.

With great gratitude, Claudia
Divine beloved, help me trust when I cannot see, nor hear, nor make sense of, nor connect to, nor find the words for.
When the relentless swirling of anxiety and unhelpful thoughts overcome me like a tidal wave, may I trust that there are other workings afoot that I am unaware of.
May the sobs of grief part long enough so that I may listen for the whispers of trust even as impatience screams at me, perfectionism pulls me into descent, and loneliness engulfs my heart.
May trust be my cloak during the dark times of forgetfulness and in the light of remembering.
When my doubt overcomes me and my breath is shallow, may I trust in the signs that glimmer in the moonlight.
"You are still here."
Hummingbird tells me.
When I can't feel the ground beneath my feet, may I trust that my roots are anchored in heaven.
When I feel as though my very being is disintegrating, may I trust that this is when I am about to be reborn.
In love +gratitude, Claudia
