Alvin Ailey, A True Capricorn Spirit~

Alvin Ailey’s horoscope is a wild display of legacy, life long commitment, and courageous leadership. When looking at his photo I can not help be see the resemblance of the goat persona Capricorn is so famous for. His piercing eyes, his chiseled jawline, and perfectly trimmed ‘ goatee’.  He is the quintessential goat not only in image but also soul and spirit, as his chart clearly reveals. 

What’s most striking in his chart is the intimate connection between the Sun and Saturn at 14 degrees of Capricorn. In astrology this tight planetary embrace is known as cazimi or “in the heart of the Sun”. When a planet is “in the heart of the Sun”, its power is amplified and adds a special charisma to the Sun’s rays. 

In Mr. Ailey’s case the connection is even more powerful as Saturn happens to also be the ruler of Capricorn, the zodiac’s most serious sign. Saturn is also known as the ruler of “fate” and points to one’s destiny. It is a planet that rewards hard work with lasting achievement. Now, moving toward yet another decade in the 21st century, the Ailey Spirit continues to shine brightly, as if indeed in the heart of the Sun.

Happy New Year! It’s 2020!!

Saturn Meets Pluto in Capricorn

A Cosmic Executive Meeting

2020 begins with a powerful and rare meeting between Saturn and Pluto, both now in Capricorn, the zodiac’s most conservative sign. Think of this cosmic occurrence as  a high profile meeting in which both parties will need to come to a final agreement about a momentous executive decision. This decision will create a foundation for the next decade (and maybe even longer). As a result, there is a feeling of heaviness that can not be ignored, only embraced. 

So, if the New Year feels unusually somber, serious, or even dire, you’re likely receiving a crystal clear connection from the planets! It’s likely a situation has been gradually building up for the past several months, directly  heading toward an inevitable climax that will leave a lasting mark on not only on this year but your next life chapter. This is most transparent in the current political landscape in the U.S. and many other places world wide, but what’s important for you to realize is that you too, as an individual are indeed part of the big world scheme currently at play.

You have a specific role to play, and it’s crucial that you abide to this in a way that will empower you. Depending on how well equipped you are, you may even have the rare opportunity for your life to be transformed (for the better of course) and to start anew from an unprecedented place of instinct, resilience, and fortitude, where there will be no turning back.

As the planet of society’s expectations and civic responsibility, Saturn wants you to commit to a particular role, title, or purpose that will have a large scale impact.  No matter where you live, or how you see yourself- Saturn will call on you to realize how important and relevant you are as an individual, which will encourage you to take a higher level of responsibility in  a particular area of your life. 

Pluto, on the other hand, loves to tear things down and get to the very core of the matter. This bodes well if you have a long standing pattern that has not been serving you. Pluto will pull at your inner critic, your ‘lesser self’, and the shards of your ego that lead you in circles without understanding why, particularly with power plays that involve sex, money, and control. 

Once the cosmos brings Saturn and Pluto together, the air can weigh so heavy that you may find it hard to breathe. But breathe you must, as you are human, and however fragile you may feel, these planets will bring you face to face with  strength you didn’t know you had.

With the Sun now in Capricorn, you’ll benefit from structure. Yet as the Sun confronts Uranus (the planet of upheaval) you’ll need deal with the unexpected and react on the fly.

This planetary partnership will emphasize serious communication and prudence, especially if you are a Capricorn.  Indeed, politics on all sides will carry a heavy weight that will be hard to dismiss, especially in regards to America’s Government Shutdown (the longest shutdown in American history).

Saturn (the planet of authority and bureaucracy) is known to take its time, and is in dignity in Capricorn, so if doubts about various situations cross your mind, have no fear, as Mercury is a fast moving planet and soon will be on its merry way away from the heaviness of Saturn. Still, be aware of any idea, concern, or thought that feels unusually urgent- as this is likely a sign of where you’ll need to put your attention in days ahead.

Solar Eclipse in Capricorn

Solar Eclipse in Capricorn

solar eclipse in capricorn, 2019

The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on Saturday, January 5 will set a serious, practical tone for the first half 2019. Saturn, the planet of life lessons, prestige, and wisdom, (and Capricorn’s ruler) will be very close to this eclipse, adding weight to your current life circumstance.  What lesson is most important for you to learn moving forward?  Saturn’s influence will encourage you to face your situation head on and make the necessary sacrifice to learn what you need to so you can reach a higher level of influence and integrity. 

Earth Signs

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn

If you are an earth sign, you’ll find strength through events that occur near this eclipse. Know that your life experience has great value in steering you in a positive direction, and with patience, you’ll make solid progress.

Water Signs

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

If you are a water sign,  with conscious effort, you’ll have the ability to turn a challenging obstacle in your favor. Do your best to take a step  back so you can look at your current circumstance from the outside in.

Fire Signs

Aries,  Leo, Sagittarius

If you are a fire sign, this eclipse will require you to adjust to a new way of thinking, or being,  and at times you may question yourself.  Remain open to receiving  the signals of your environment; this will help you feel grounded and in control.

Air Signs

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

If you are an air sign,  you’ll benefit from healthy ego detachment-which will not always be easy. Look to those you trust to help you see the bright side, as this will help you tap into your intelligence and make the hard decisions with grace.

2019! Capricorn Solar Eclipse, Alvin Ailey

Alvin Ailey, Capricorn

We say, “Time flies.”
Time does not exist. We are the ones moving about.
The Talmud

2019 will begin with a Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (the sign of structure and responsibility) on Saturday January 5, 8:28 p.m. EST.    Saturn (Capricorn’s ruler) will merge with this eclipse,  which will add weight to whatever you  begin in the New Year. The mood in January will be serious, and with Saturn (the planet of authority) in the mix, you’ll want to think long term so you’ll be ready to face the consequences of your actions.  Thanks to the eclipse, it’s likely what you embark on in the beginning of 2019 will make you stronger and wiser. If you’re taking on a challenging new endeavor, consider consulting someone older who has a wealth of experience, and he or she will likely lead you in the right direction.

Stay tuned for your Yearly 2019 Forecast!

Capricorn Dancer’s Moira Shearer’s Birthday~ January 17, 1926

Boris Lermontov: Why do you want to dance? Victoria Page: Why do you want to live?  Boris Lermontov : Well I don’t know exactly why, er, but I must.

Victoria Page: That’s my answer too.  
                                              
                                                         Dialogue from The Red Shoes 

 

 

Moira Shearer is most famous for her starring role in the classic dance film, The Red Shoes, directed by  Hollywood icon Michael Powell. Born on January 17, 1926, Ms. Shearer is a Capricorn. As the zodiac’s 10th sign, Capricorn is the zenith of the zodiac, and thrives on ambition. Saturn, the planet of realism, is Capricorn’s ruler. Thus, even though Capricorn has high hopes, she (or he) is not afraid to work hard-because it builds character, Capricorn’s most notable virtue.

With her moon in Pisces, the zodiac’s most imaginative sign, Ms. Shearer was also a dreamer who was known for her sensitivity. Her Leo ascendant made her a natural performer who adored the spotlight. The sign on the ascendant, (or rising sign), reflects ones public image, physical appearance,  and demeanor. Her infamous red hair and dramatic eyes gave her a lioness quality that is quintessentially Leo.
