Uranus and Juno - sitting in a tree............

No they aren't k-i-s-s-i-n-g but they could be. For a good portion of this year and well into the next, the planet Uranus and the asteroid Juno have been in conjunction with one another - 22 degrees Pisces. A conjunction is an aspect planets make as they flip around the ecliptic (the path we take around the Sun). These two characters have been hugging one another, both 22 degrees into the constellation of Pisces.

Ok Joan what does that all mean? Well Uranus is the planet that likes to change things up. Remember, it is the only planet that spins on it's side. Uranus is all about sudden change, fast change - quick movement into the future. Juno is the ancient Roman goddess of marriage. She works on issues of loyality and commitment. Sounds contradicotry doesn't it? Well, no. It just means that this is time to find new ways to commit ourselves to people and issues. More specifially, where we commit to our way of connecting to the cosmic consciousness (that is where the Psices comes in. Pisces is our portal to the Universe.)

Remember you have to look at where these two are in your particular chart to see how you will feel their effect. In my chart, they are transiting the 6th house - the house of health and day to day work. Not surprisingly I have undertaken a plan to rid myself of my allergies to nuts - and my auto immune problems. I am committing myself to change the way my body works. I am not doing this with a traditional doctor but through meditation and energy work.

Once a goat - always a goat?

Not necessarily. I thought I would go back to my South Node shadow discussion again with my old friend Capricorn! Yes, my tongue sort of is in my cheek. I have always had issues with Capricorn - he goes against my born inconoclasism. On the upside, Capricorn gives us form and structure - he controls time and bones and everything that holds us together. Capricorn make us meet obligations and color within the lines. The steady, stubborn goat keeps us moving up the mountain.

However, when people get too into their Capricornian ways - when they get into the shadow - particularly if they have a South Node in Capricorn - they can become too involved in carrying that heavy load up the hill. This can manifest as someone who feels they must always work, must always provide for everyone. They can become joyless and the epitome of a work-aholic.

Capricorn South Node people had to keep family and community together through shear hard work in past lives. They were the go-to people and while they need now to learn to go to toward Cancer in this life - using their heart instead of head - they can get stuck in that work, work attitude.

We also have to watch for the upsdie down Capricorn who tries so hard to recreate that life of order and structure that he so longs to go back there but the universe wants him to move on and - you know you can't ever go home agian. Instead of organization this Capricorn becomes too tossed up inside and losses all track of time - always arriving late - and order- sometimes becoming a horder.

My prescription for those overly-charged Capricorns - think with your heart this time - open your heart. It is about feelings not things this time.
