Capricorn 19° (January 10)


It’s a bit of a tetchy morning and I will wait too long to eat, taking myself to Cecconi for some chicken paillard before we have a client session for ninety minutes to two hours. Then Alice will come over and we will look at some more designs and make our notes; she says she had a lousy day, I forget why exactly. Anyway, we decide to go to the Grocery for some wine and cheese which is not very much like us, especially as we have a dinner date with Susanne. Something about the dinner at Emile triggers me and I’m not sure why but I get very emotional without explanation. I’m still wondering what that was all about. I think I’m feeling sadness surrounding not having children as I have such real affection for her boy. I know it is something like that. Plus the passing of time and all the unfulfilled promises. And of course all the rejection I feel I’ve been experiencing beginning at the end of last year, which is carrying over through to now. It is a Full Moon. It is a Pluto conjunct Saturn thing. It is all of it. And I suppose the cosmos is working my nerves harder than even usual. I want to make some drastic changes in my life that much is for certain. But where to begin. We shall see.

The transition from Capricorn to Aquarius is, in simple terms, a shift from the old guard to the avant guard. Capricorn is steeped in culture, tradition and social mores that are worth preserving for all time; while Aquarius is about breaking out of outmoded structures, innovation, and the shock of the new. Though opposite energies in many ways, they work in tandem to keep the past and the future in synch. Capricorn is the cardinal-earth sign whose symbol is the mountain, and Aquarius is the fixed-air sign, that translates to the stars or heavens. In most mythologies, the throne of the gods sits atop some mountain, a terrestrial seat from whence divine powers of the universe are received. Capricorn urges us to the pinnacle of earthy beingness, as it is from the vantage point of our most elevated selves that we glimpse truest cosmic revelation, and receive the manna that Aquarius represents.

The time corresponding to Aquarius is that of deepest winter. Whereas Capricorn began at solstice and involved seasonal revelry then resolutions made, Aquarius is about what revelations have come to bear, as a result, and what sense of renewal we might feel, thus far, in driest January. The o.g. waterbearer to the Olympian gods was Hebe, goddess of youth, who poured out the nectar that kept the gods juicy and eternally juvenated. At this time, we aren’t now so concerned with who we’ve been, and any changes needing making; now we arethe change, and we already have a renewed sense of ourselves and what the future of this year might bring. As we see the days getting longer, we feel on the dawn of a new era. Like Hebe, the goddess of the dawn, Eos, and the goddess of the rainbow, Iris, are all “descending goddesses” who had a special love for mortals, to whom they would descend in hopes of raising them up. So, just as we might be high on our positively altered states, we should remember to bring the good news of our own personal revelations to others, so they might likewise feel as lovingly renewed as we do.


To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°,  for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360  degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.


Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
