Back again, dear Friends and Readers…Capricorn is a serious sign. People with NATAL Saturn in their 10th house of career, the Capricorn house, usually have to work from the bottom up to attain any success.  There are no shortcuts — long hours, hard work, and attention to all the details — this is their foundation. People with NATAL Saturn must have traditional education —  college degree, maybe more than one — to attain success in their career. People with NATAL Saturn in their 1st house of presenting themselves to the outside world are usually shy and NOT confident until they work hard on developing themselves and some skills to share with the world. The point is Saturn is a planet of pressure.  Add Pluto conjunct Saturn in this year’s TRANSITS and you have a LOT of pressure. Resistance is futile, so accept the restrictions and pressure and prepare to buckle  down and get to work. Figure out by house what is your weak point and sincerely do all that you  can to strengthen yourself.  I know a guy who is really smart but he is not patient with others. It will be his downfall at work unless he can get a handle on his behavior with co-workers. I know a woman who helps many children but she doesn’t let herself go out to play very much. You guessed it; she has Saturn in her 5th. Looking for a positive example, I know a woman who feels money is somewhat tiresome, but she understands that with Saturn moving into her 8th house, she had better pay attention. And she is doing just that — educating herself about investments and money management in general. It’s those kinds of behaviors that will allow Jupiter in Capricorn to bring positive energy into our lives this year.  Jupiter is considered the lucky planet but in Capricorn it’s not going to fall into our laps this year. EFFORT, consistent effort, is required and THEN you get the goodies :))  All you need to do to understand this  transit is remember that Saturn brings us what we have already earned.  Jupiter might bring it to us a little sooner, or in multiple small doses, but the nature of Capricorn — slow and steady — will prevail…

If you have Capricorn rising, use Jupiter to keep your attitude positive as you slog through a long-term and somewhat restrictive situation.  Develop your leadership skills. Read and study about how a good leader empowers and inspires others to do their best. Since the 1st house is also a symbol of our body as well as personality, do all you can to strengthen and heal your bones, joints, and teeth.  Keep your eyes on the long-term goals that you have set for yourself. You may need more rest this year, as Saturn in your 1st can dampen down your vitality. Make 2020 the year of the POWER NAP :))

If you have Aquarius rising, then Jupiter will be in your 12th house.  This position is called the help at the last minute energy — heavenly help will pull you through when it seems that all is lost. VERY important to add prayer and meditation to your daily life and to read and study the stories of other people who have received this kind of help. Guideposts Magazine would be a good example.  People with Saturn in their 12th often work alone — artists, writers, etc. THREE planets in your 12th is a big deal.  Your life may require you to face your worst fears. I know a guy who has been diagnosed with a progressive illness.  He was afraid of doctors but now has to deal with them.  He is actually receiving good medical care, which he admits. He is working hard to maintain a positive attitude, focusing on what he CAN do.  The 12th is a tricky house; to me it is the hardest house to understand because it has to do  with the contract we agree to before we come to earth.  It can be a house of grief and loss and sorrow, but also one of love and peace and serenity.

If you have Pisces rising, then all the Cap transits will be in your 11th house of friends and groups. Think carefully about making commitments to  groups this year. If it doesn’t feel right, then honor your intuition. If you find a group that you DO like and feel good about, then you will probably have increased responsibility in this group.  It could be a club, a charity, a fraternal organization, a union, or even just a group of friends that gets together on a regular basis.  Usually the activity is not purely social, the 11th is the barn-building/quilting bee energy — there is a purpose beyond the moment.  If Neptune in Pisces is in your 1st house, then consider joining with others to help the animals or the environment.  Cleaning up the beach or helping pet adoption groups would be examples, or planting trees — Uranus in Taurus is making great transits for helping nature, too.

If you have Aries rising, then the 3 Cap planets are potentially challenging you from the 10th house of career, reputation, and authority. Not the easiest time to deal with the government officials, but the transits COULD be encouraging you to be your own authority and not value others peoples’ opinions more than your own.  Sometimes Saturn transiting through your 10th will bestow a difficult boss on you, as a shortcut lesson with a lot of pressure on how to be a good boss yourself :)) NOT easy but you will see the value once the squares have passed… I would suspect that you will need to be more precise with details at work and less argumentative.  Practice  starting your sentences with the word “yes” instead of the word “no” and see if other people become more cooperative.  The more professional you behave, the better.  You could get a big promotion that throws you off balance.  Workshops, coaching, extra training that is related to your career can really help you this year!!

If you have Taurus rising, then all the Cap transits are in your 9th.  What a treat !!  Could be work-related travel, an overseas move, back to school, an increase in your income coming to you from a distance — all these are possibilities designed to help you grow and not get stuck in a rut.  You know you like routine, but Uranus is shaking your life up so you can grow and thrive for years to come.  Remote work from home could be another possibility. If you need a new job, consider something related to legal work or higher ed as possibilities. If you are already happy with your career, expect rewards, but the type that will push you to grow.  You might need to learn a new language.  The gifts you give to others in 2020 should have a touch of good luck attached to them…you want to share prosperity — like a jade plant, or a FengShui frog, or even a small tree to plant as a gift.

If you have Gemini rising, then Capricorn would be your 8th house of shared money matters — things like taxes, insurance, inheritance, investments, mutual funds, etc. Jupiter here can make it easy to get credit, so don’t overextend yourself because Saturn-Pluto says you will have to pay the piper.  However, if you need a long-term loan, like a refi on a mortgage to get a lower rate, then do so, but don’t do it just to get equity out. PLEASE do yourself a favor and ask questions about all things financial and write down the answers in a notebook that is dedicated to 8th house issues.  Live within your budget and obey all financial rules concerning taxes, retirement funds, etc. Get to know and really understand all insurance policies that you have. Ask questions!!  Look for mistakes or misunderstandings !! Doublecheck everything  very carefully and act like Mercury is retrograde all year — that should keep you out of trouble.  If it was me and I was in any kind of financial partnership, then I would be very cautious and keep an eye on the books. This is not a favorable year to loan money or property to someone because it could be a long time or never until you get it back.  That being said, the positives are all in the area of educating yourself about these areas…remember the old phrase…”Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.”  Teach yourself how to be the fisherman!!

Well, time for lunch, my friends…more manana…Best wishes, Jenae

Hello dear Friends and Readers, Most of you who follow me know that for the last few years I  post when a major planet changes signs, and I usually go through all the houses. This time I want to start with the nature of Jupiter in Capricorn to give you some general but pertinent information to help you formulate plans for your life. Before I begin, thank you for all the kind words and appreciation I have received over the last 8 years. They mean a lot to me…

Since Jupiter rules philosophy, let me share some of mine :))  To me, astrology is useful when it is practical. This does not negate the more etheric types of astrology that deal with a lot of symbolism and psychology. There is great benefit in using astrology as a tool for inner exploration…the more you meditate and study your chart, the more you will get out of it.  However, I feel that the purpose of my blog is to show you how to use astrology as a timing tool for reaching the goals in your life that help you be happier, to warn you when to lay low and be careful, to encourage you to grow and try new things to build your confidence in yourself, and when to expect the rewards, too. I have an exact trine and a mutual reception between Saturn in Virgo and Mercury in Capricorn. So I am known as a practical astrologer.

Some astrologers will note that Jupiter in Capricorn is in an uncomfortable place, but it is way different than when Saturn was in Sagittarius.  In 2020 Grand Earth Trines are accented.  By now you no doubt have read about the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn that is exact on 1-12-20 at 22 degrees Cap. (You can read my earlier post, too) The negative potential is vast and allowing for orb it is exact December, January, and February.  I already predicted the weather. It’s tough already and is going to get worse. The noise out of DC sets the country on edge and underlines the level of stress that most people are already trying to cope with on a daily basis. We’re going to have climate refugees and there will be a term called plastic dementia in a few years to explain why so many of the marine creatures are attacking humans, etc.  The building codes for foundations will be strengthened (Cap) because it will become fashionable to have rooftop gardens and greenhouses.  Yes, we know about the negatives but what I am finding as I work with individual charts is the country may be falling apart but individuals can shine and create whole new opportunities and businesses for themselves. So, in that spirit, let’s look at Jupiter in Cap as a beneficial influence to somewhat moderate the heaviness of Saturn-Pluto.

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, whether it’s a house or an actual birth planet. Jupiter rules religion, philosophy, higher education, foreign contacts and travel, libraries, books, licensing and ceremonies, humor, tolerance, and  generosity.

Jupiter is only negative through too much of a good thing. Alcohol, workaholic, shopaholic, binging of all kinds. I think Jupiter is more toned down in Capricorn, LESS inclined to go overboard, though having the right work/life balance will be important in 2020.

So…want a better career? Consider going back to school and be sure to look into employer-sponsored education.  Sometimes your job will pay some of the costs.  Education of all kinds is highly favored by this transit as long as there is a tangible result that improves your career, reputation, and public life — because that is what Capricorn rules. It also rules bones, joints, and teeth. ALL of us need to take very good care of these parts of our bodies. Don’t go to excess, start with  gentle stretching and don’t forget to warm up and cool down each time. Invest in dental insurance, or some of the electric toothbrushes, and a good quality mouthwash.  The Edgar Cayce foundation, the A R E in Virginia Beach, used to sell a mouthwash years ago, a good one that came from his readings.

Capricorn is very much about bringing goals into physical manifestion. When you build a house, you start with the foundation.  So 2020 is a great year to embark on a new project, to strengthen your foundation, and to take your responsibilities very seriously.  For some who are at home with children, this may mean taking your authority seriously. For some, it may mean their authority at work.  More on Jupiter in Capricorn tomorrow or the next day…Ciao for now…Jenae

Back again, dear Friends and Readers…sorry for the delay.  So busy planting !!  I plant by the Moon whenever possible. Getting back to Uranus transiting through Taurus, let’s take a look at the 11th house. While Uranus may not be comfortable in Taurus, it is most definitely at home in the 11th house of friends and groups, hopes and wishes for the future, and metaphysical interests. Uranus RULES the 11th house in the natural order of the zodiac, the Aquarian house. Historically, this is the barn-building/quilting bee energy — groups of people coming together for the common good. Put a modern spin on it and you get on-line crowd-funding, and groups using social media to raise money for good causes.  The 11th rules all social, fraternal, and charitable groups as well as labor unions.  Friends come together for many purposes and since we’re talking about Taurus, there can be a financial reason.  Anything from cooperative living, to holding a large yard sale, to forming a food buying club, or even an investment club like the Beardstown Ladies did in the 80’s — all these things have a Taurus flavor. Since Venus rules Taurus, coming together for artistic purposes, to create beauty, is also a strong possibility.

What we spend our money on says a lot about who we are. Taurus is the sign that represent core values.  I think you need to honor your feelings and take a deeper look if there is anything about particular friends that is troubling to you. There’s an old saying about Taurus —“neither a borrower, nor a lender be…”.  Sometimes mixing money and friends doesn’t work out too well. If you have squares from Uranus to planets in your natal, be cautious.  If people are coming together for the same purpose and their values are aligned, it can be a big success. There’s no one size fits all with this particular transit.

I know a woman who shares a studio, an art studio, with other people.  I know another woman who shares space at an antique mart. These are examples of coming together to create beauty, since Taurus is ruled by Venus.  Again with the financial energy intertwined, since they all pay a portion of the rent.

There is a wonderful community garden in the main part of downtown near where we live. It is beautiful, helps the people who need garden space, and improves health through eating fresh vegetables.  I’m not a member but I would imagine it fosters new friendships, too. There are no negatives. Cuba is another fabulous example. The government gave people permission to raise produce on vacant land in Havana and this built small businesses and improved the general health of the population.  Anything that improves community beautification would benefit from Uranus in Taurus in the 11th.  Murals, etc.

Ah…the 12th house… Uranus here will bring things to the surface from the unconscious mind. To me, this is the hardest house to interpret. The Pisces house of mental health, secret sorrows, past lives, spiritual aspiration, and compassionate love for the ill and afflicted.  I saw an ad on TV recently that showed some kind of electrical machine that could help depression. This would probably be a good example of Uranus in the 12th — science and gadgets and inventions and breakthroughs in the area of medicine, mental health, addiction, etc. Look for big changes in these areas over the next 6 years. Robot surgeons, on line doctors, etc.

Looking at the 12th house on a more personal level, pay particular attention to your dreams and daydreams.  Your own guides and teachers on the other side are there for you, planting seeds of inspiration and spiritual growth to help you achieve peace of mind. It is SO important to follow your conscience!!! Willfullness and rebellion will only create more karma, more pressure.  Really, it’s just easier to behave and do what you know you are supposed to do.  Be very careful about being judgemental about other people. If the qualities you see and dislike were not also in YOU, you wouldn’t be able to recognize them in others.  You DO have a right to choose who is healthy for you to associate with, but this is a private matter.  You can set your boundaries but you don’t need to announce it to the world. I’m a little hesitant to say this, but the 12th house is also the house of secret enemies, or behind the scenes subtle undermining by those you would hope you could trust.  If you are  dealing with that kind of situation, figure it’s some kind of karma that you are clearing. Acknowledge to yourself how you feel about it, the ugly truth if necessary, don’t expect them to change, and change yourself by disengaging emotionally from them.  Protect yourself.

Pay particular attention if you have natal planets in Taurus in the 12th house. The conjunction from Uranus can bring about very sudden and drastic events. Study your chart, meditate on the planet involved.  If you remember where we started with this series of posts, Uranus is like pruning a fruit tree to ensure new growth. If something is taken out of your life, it’s to make room for you to grow. This can be painful; this can be enlightening, too. The 12th is a hard house to interpret, it takes a lot of patience and honesty. Some of you may be in a caregiving situation.  The physical and mental health houses are intertwined.  If you are in a difficult situation with Uranus in your 12th, write to me privately if you like.

Well, we’re done for while :)) I will be working at Stargazers in Bellevue on June 15 & 16 if you want to come visit me.  I read palms and cards as well as the astrology.  Best wishes, Jenae
