1/30 New moon @ 10 Aquarius – the new crescent will mark the new month of Adar I, the 13th month inserted into the calendar to align the solar and lunar cycles.
1/31 Jupiter (Cancer) square Pluto (Capricorn) at 12 degrees – a landmark towards the exact cross in April. Jupiter goes direct again on Mar 6 which allows for another exact square. Venus is close by at 13 Capricorn, where the exact cardinal cross will take place in April.
Venus Direct Yet Venus retrorgrade does not take Venus to 12 Capricorn where the Jupiter-Pluto square is taking place. Rather, 12 hours after the Jupiter-Pluto square, Venus goes direct again at 13*34′ Capricorn and begins moving ahead through the sign, moving towards the sun, trailing as the morning star, and retracing the route it has been on since late December.
Sun quincunx Jupiter 12 Aquarius/Cancer – the Jupiter-Pluto square is compounded by another uneasy aspect at the 12th degree, bridging fixed air and cardinal water.
Also on the 31st, Mercury the messenger enters Pisces the subconscious.
Aries Uranus square Cancer Mars on Wednesday night (8pm PST):
Cancer Mars has been helping us move ahead from the past constructively. With a square to Uranus, we may develop a vision of how powerful we could be were we to truly stand as we are in relation to all that comes before us in our DNA and psyche. Yet it is the plan of the heavenly forces to assist us in becoming who we are in the context of the collective, to become the newest, most beautiful branch on the family tree, but always to remain connected, and through this, to uplift everything and everyone in our journeys.
The square occurs at 12 Aries / 12 Cancer. 12 is the number of the tribes of Israel, the gateways through which prayer ascends from the earthly to heavenly realms. It is taught that each tribe has a unique gate through which the prayers of its children ascend. In addition, there is a 13th gate through which all those who have lost their way can enter. Tonight is a time both to offer the prayer of the lost princess, bearing no sign of royalty but the love of the King in her heart; and also a time to seek out the gate particular to our individual soul, the one that opens when we stand as we are.
While the 13th gate is an opening of mercy, for those who have forgotten where they come from, in the future times, there will be only 12 gates to Jerusalem. This is because in our redeemed state we know who we are, the origin of our soul, and the tribe of our origins. This variety is part of the oneness we become and the divinity inside that we manifest.
