A Black Moon, Two Eclipses & The Great Benefic? Wow, May is going to be interesting…

Hi Everyone

I hope you haven’t made too many plans for the weekend! We are in for a bumper dose of cosmic energy as Eclipse season hits us. 

On April 30th we will have a SOLAR Eclipse. A solar eclipse can only take place at the phase of new moon, when the moon passes directly between the Sun and Earth and its shadows, also known as its umbra, falls upon Earth’s surface. Just before and during sunset, the Moon will cover a part of the sun causing a partial eclipse. This new moon is also called a BLACK MOON (the second new moon in the same calendar month). It will also mark the end of Ramadan for Muslims which means that their month-long period of fasting has come to an end. The celebration of Eid will be on May 1 or May 2, depending on where you are in the world and festivities will begin after the local sighting of the crescent, slightly illuminated moon. 

Astrologically speaking, experts are hinting that this eclipse is a peak point in our collective destiny and that shocks and surprises involving politicians/global figures will shape us all going forward. I have my eye on the British Royal family:-) 

Mid-month we will have another eclipse. This time a TOTAL LUNAR Eclipse (May 15/16th). This is a big deal and definitely one of the peak points of this year! We can feel this eclipse energy up to a month before and up to 6 months later. This particular eclipse is happening in the sign of SCORPIO. There is always intensity at any full moon but this Scorpio flavor is emotional and supercharged. Scorpio will bring to light dirty laundry, secrets, and dark and hidden matters which are likely to play out on the public stage courtesy of the full moon.  I plan to look at what I can RELEASE that is toxic in my life as well as the shadow matters that I need to air.  

Another thing to bear in mind is that from May 11th Jupiter will move into Aries. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and a Cardinal Sign. This is another strong energy that I think we are going to feel because Jupiter- also known as The Great Benefic (/bɪˈnɛfɪk/) – will always bring EXPANSION and PERSONAL GROWTH.

**Here’s a fun exercise for you to do**: Jupiter has a 12-year cycle so it moved into Aries in June 2010. Look back at your life and into your old journals if possible. What was happening around June 2010? Which life areas were booming/changing/expanding at this time?  This is likely to be the same life area that will be expanding again this time around. You should also look at which HOUSE in your chart is likely to be most affected by this energy. You can do this by looking at your specific birth chart. If like me, you have your Sun/Moon/Ascendant in Aries then this should be a time of huge opportunity and upward momentum. Also remember to take action (Aries is all about action) on things you want to look back at in 12 years’ time and say Yes, that’s what I dreamed-in and worked on in a big way in May 2022!

Friends, we are in for a bumper ride. I am sending you love and I hope that your life is full of unexpected wonder! Astrology is not an exact science but it sure helps to know what energies are at play doesn’t it? Besides, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US President said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it”.

Please let me know how you feel about eclipses and share any interesting rituals, stories, and facts with me.

Return of PLUTO in US Birthchart

Dear Friends

The world of astrology is abuzz with talk of the Return of PLUTO in the Birth Chart of the USA.

The birth date of the USA is recorded as July 4, 1776 on the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Broadly speaking, this statement was about 3 things: Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness. Pluto was moving slowly (as it always does) and was stationed 27 Degrees of Capricorn in the Second House. On a birth chart, the Second House is related to all things money/wealth/values and Capricorn is linked to all things banking, big business, government and systems. Now, hundreds of years later with its return, we can expect that these areas are the ones that will be activated.

Also known as planet of the underworld, Pluto is associated with:

  • Death (in a metaphorical sense)
  • Financial reforms (debt, deficit, default, taxes etc)
  • Destruction
  • Crisis
  • Transformation
  • Rebirth

On February, 20, 2022 (ping*ping*ping* goes my number-wired brain) is when Pluto will return to 27 Degrees of Capricorn. In Astrology-speak, it will be “exact”. So, is this when it will all come crashing down? Well, I couldn’t answer that for a million bucks (and perhaps a million bucks will not really be worth much once Pluto is done with us) but we are definitely in for something BIG in the areas that will be activated. In fact, this activation is already underway.

Pluto’s return will have a huge impact on the economy of the USA as it comes to break down the old and expose what needs to come to light. The impact of the massive stimulus program undertaken to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as well as murmuring of increases in taxes (which are no doubt to deal with debt/deficits shrouded in darkness) are two aspects I will be keeping an eye on. Could we see the US Dollar take a tumble resulting in it losing its status as the “default currency” of the world? Again, we can only wait and see, but I’m leaning towards yes.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. Pluto’s transit may be destructive and dramatic but the collapse of the old always presents an opportunity for something new. I am spending time in meditation, visualizing the NEW. Maybe you can join me? Let’s hold that vision and energetically drive the new agenda as we hold on to our seats.

What are your predictions or thoughts about the return of Pluto? Drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.

P.S. There’s a powerful full blood moon on October 20, 2021 in the sign of ARIES (my sign). If you’re not sure what to do, here’s an old blog I wrote with some full moon tips: https://caracarozza.com/2021/08/20/once-in-a-blue-seekerofmagic-spreaderoflight/
