Moonwobble musings

Signs most affected : Capricorn (!), Cancer and, to a lesser extent, Aries and Libra.

While we have a regular Moonwobble cycle that peaks on December 29, 30, and 31, we are experiencing it in the context of a much more powerful current: the upcoming conjunction of Saturn and Pluto at 22° Capricorn on January 12, 2020. It's the beginning of a 35-year cycle that I write more about elsewhere.

The Saturn-Pluto conjunction is a little bit like being squeezed ever more tightly by a very large snake, with the Moonwobble energy feeling like an insolent pre-adolescent throwing rocks at you all the while.

We are now (Dec. 22) in the critical period of the MW cycle, as the Sun entered Capricorn early this morning - the Winter Solstice (or Summer Solstice down under). I like Rick Thomas' emphasis on the Venus-Pluto conjunction in the current pattern.

nm_201911.pngThe background energy of this Moonwobble can be discerned in the new moon cycle of November 26 at 4° Sagittarius. This chart has a Capricorn ascendant for Washington DC, and the new moon takes place in the 11th house. Saturn is conjunct the ascendent which suggests very conservative forces holding sway. It suggests a lot of activity among groups of all kinds, and a survival mentality that dominates everything. Remember this is Washington DC - useful for American politics - the placement will be quite different for other places and for your own chart.

More generally, communication is intense and imaginative. There are interesting aspects to Uranus which correspond with a great deal of upheaval : bellicosity amplified by uncompromising stubbornness. This is moderated, somewhat, by an unexpected spirit of accommodation, or it could just be amorousness that's gotten out of hand. Just what it is is unclear and is definitely not reliable.
