The Worm Moon is the last full moon of winter. This is the third and last super moon of 2019 and occurs at the same time as the Spring Equinox and the Ingress into the sign of Aries, so it offers us a lot of support when we connect and aline with it.
Soft Aspects and Orbs: The trine and sextile are often referred to as soft aspects, and they suggest an energy between planets which is easy, flowing and innate. These aspects suggest cooperation between the energies of two (or more) planets and can reflect innate talents, things that come easily or naturally to the individual. As such, they offer opportunities for creativity; however, if there are too many easy aspects within a chart, there can be very little for a person to strive for.
Rayology can help us to awaken to who we are and how we can use our gifts and strengths most effectively. As we become conscious of our unique pattern of energies and when we live true to that pattern, we grow into who and what we already are in essence. In fact, it is our most profound purpose as human beings to manifest our spiritual blueprint or archetype.
Astrological aspects identify the mathematical relationship (or angle) between 2, or more, planets or angles in a chart. While there are many aspects used by astrologers, the best place to begin is with the five traditional major aspects, the Conjunction, Sextile, Square, Trine, and Opposition. Major aspects are those that can be used to divide 360 evenly and are each divisible by 10.
Each of these aspects represents a different type of energy, and some are more challenging than others. It is important to remember, however, that no aspect is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and too many or too few of one type can be a disadvantage. Aspects may be helpful or detrimental, depending on the planets involved…they describe the potential interaction, tendencies, abilities, and disabilities apparent with the inter-relationships that exist. In this article the conjunction, opposition, and square are highlighted.
Esoteric or Soul-Centered Astrology provides a way to understand ourselves through the lens of our individual consciousness. Astrology is an invaluable tool for self-understanding, personal guidance, and integration. However, traditional astrology is limited due to its inability to work within the framework of varying consciousness. Soul-centered Astrology factors consciousness into the analysis of an individual's astrology.
Eclipses always portend endings or beginnings, a birth of some sort or a death. It could be an actual death, but more likely it is a death of a way of life, or an institution or a closely held belief. Because this eclipse is in the sign of Capricorn we can expect that the ending or beginning will be around Capricornian themes. Capricorn is an earth sign so staying grounded in physical reality will be important. Organizing your every day life is another important energy of Capricorn so this is a good time to make sure your days are organized around what is most important to you.
The Succedent Houses of the Horoscope are the second category or classification of Houses in the chart. Immediately following the angular Houses, Succedent Houses are the 2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th, and traditionally astrologers have not considered them to be as powerful as their predecessors. However, in practical application it seems more accurate to suggest that the Succedent Houses reflect areas of life where maintaining a certain degree of consistency and steadiness is desirable. In this way the Succedent Houses reflect something of the nature of the Fixed modality.
The Angular Houses are the Ascendant or ASC (1st), Descendant or DC (7th), Midheaven or MC (10th), and the Nadir or IC (4th). These are considered the most potent areas of a chart, and planets placed within any of these Houses are infused with energy and represent significant influence in the chart, and thus the life of the individual.
