New Moon in Capricorn
8th February 2016
By Kim Lovelace
The New Moon begins in Capricorn on the 8th February at 14:40 pm and in the 9th house - London.
The Moon in Capricorn is a highly ambitious and hardworking Moon with a cautious and reserved nature; this is a serious Moon who identifies with the material, rather than spiritual values. Although this Moon holds great wisdom, she can also come across as quite selfish and calculating, as the concentrated effort tends to be focused on benefitting the home and family rather than the organization or circle involved. This Moon is capable of achieving a great deal of success and status through hard work and shrewd assessment.
In trine to Uranus this New Moon can help us to let go of past conditionings, so that we can take advantage of the new opportunities coming in and create new original insights by applying them in unique ways. This is an exciting time for humanity, if we can accept that the world is changing and that mankind must change with it. MORE ABOUT THE NEW MOON

Lilith from Mesopotamia, with bird feet. image source
The mythology of Lilith is simple, yet through the ages it has been twisted.
Lilith is described in legend as the original woman, before Eve she was first and was conceived by the creator to exist in love and equality with the original man. This partnership was not comfortable for her male counterpart, he demanded subservience from her and rather than lessen herself she departed, expressing the pain of her rejection as fury. Her self respect was intact but according to legend her heartbreak at the injustice of this has burned throughout the ages.
The original man is then said to have requested a woman made of his own body who he thought would bend to his wishes. We all know how that story ended, ultimately Eve sought knowledge and was vilified in mythology and religion for thousands of years. Lilith meanwhile was subject to a lot of vilifying herself, but her story was eclipsed by that of her sister. History shows that it was preferable to forget about the angry one who rebelled, better to tell the story of Eve, the stupid nosy one and blame her for humanity’s 'fall from grace’. MORE

Savior or Slave master?
Capricorn is the most maligned sign in the Zodiac. Many people regard Capricorn as authoritarian and fixated on money. We're warned that Capricorn is boring and cold-blooded. The Tarot card representing Capricorn is titled as the devil. Capricorns themselves often repudiate astrology because their archetype is so misunderstood and unlikable. In truth, Capricorns are complex and difficult to love; their mission is to tell us what's best for us, and they don't seem to care about how people feel about their advice. But this is just the surface. MORE

For All Other Signs
Capricorn: December 19th-February 15th: Ziggy Stardust
World Leader, Scientist, Spiritual Leader, Cultural Creative and Activist Capricorns: I imagine many of you both individually and collectively are experiencing a sense of eroding identity, some of you are refreshed by the change others terrified. Gone are the days when elites could conduct their nefarious schemes without the intrusion of public scrutiny as technology has enabled everything to come to light. The masses are fed up and are not taking this anymore, those in positions of hegemony will experience a fall from grace as the pinnacle of what they have founded their sense of self on is rapidly disintegrating. Take heart it is time now to redefine what it means to be human in a more complex world and to embrace the intersecting identities that many of will have to grow accustomed to, that is most of the revolution right there, redefining our self and our values to better reflect reality.

What is the problem with real estate? With oil? With consumer sales? With stocks and bonds, with the dollar? It's the downside of abundance: supply is greater than demand, and deflation is the result. This is the worst scenario of all for capitalism, the end of growth. When deflation happens, ownership becomes onerous. The business owner, equity owner, homeowner, or any owner gets undercut. Ownership is a weeping wound, Ownership is like being caught with the hot potato. MORE ON DEFLATION

Scardy-cat Janet Yellen, image by Andrew Harrer
Janet Yellen, the head of the Fed, has pounced. But don't worry, it's not serious, she has no claws, she's a scardy-cat that shrinks in the corner and works for kibble. 1/4 of a percent? Is she crazy? 20% more likely! It's not her fault. The Fed is as weak as the Wizard of Oz. Like the bulk of mainstream economists, Yellen is telling us that a slight twist of the interest knob can stop the oncoming crisis. All she wants is one more day. It's not her fault that the house of cards comes crashing down. MORE ON THE PRESENT CRISIS
Our Cycle of Crisis
image: Shuler Research
Like a creeping disease, deflation is the specter of destruction haunting the capitalist system. It's contagious; it's jumping from one nation to another like an STD. Oil producing nations have it. It's working its way through Europe like a new black plague; Japan has had it for 10 years, and now China has it. And now, finally, deflation--the dull gray bubble in the illustration above--has come to edge us ever closer to a future of wanting what we can't have and paying for what we don't want. MORE
Mercury Retro: Dec 18-Feb 14
When, Why and What it Means
The dance of Mercury is a trompe l'oeil for us, a trick where the eye deceives the brain. Mercury is unperturbed, consistent and on course; our downfall is due to our own confusion. This time, Mercury is moving from Sagittarius to Capricorn. This is when the adolescent becomes the adult. Sagittarius has been sowing oats, now he gets subjugated to the responsibilities of the group. The Grasshopper dies and the ants get to work. During the course of the retrograde, Mercury just gets to Capricorn, when suddenly, it is stopped dead in its tracks by a stone wall. MORE ABOUT MERCURY RETROGRADE (UNTIL FEB 14)

Saturn in Ophiuchus
Shock and Awe
Saturn represents the power structure. Saturn's meaning for us is grounded in our human society. Eons ago, but within human consciousness, Saturn was much closer to Earth and was considered a benevolent star, like the Sun. Saturn provided the security for an Earth teeming with life, and the blooming of the evolutionary tree. Many ancient cultures left drawings of another object in their sky, as big as the Sun. The temperance of Saturn was like a security blanket of regular cycles and is now associated with the cornucopia. Early humans had it good, and lived in harmony with nature.
Suddenly, Saturn exploded in the sky, and was spun out of control to its present position on the far reaches of the Sun's solar rays. The rubble thrown up by the release of energy now gives Saturn its rings and many moons. MORE
Billionaires and Presidents
Karl Marx famously said of the French counter-revolution, "History repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, and the second time as comedy". This is also true of our history of presidents. Donald Trump and John Kennedy have a lot in common (see chart), both are billionaires, both of them are not trusted by the very establishments from which they sprang. Aside from character issues, the big difference is that, Kennedy presided over a rising economic tide in 1960, while Trump's America of 2016 is on the decline. Kennedy is the tragedy of America, while Trump is the farce.
Like the Kennedy Magic, Trump also has tapped into a vein of hidden power. The message of "Ask not what your country can do for you" and "Make America great again" is not that different, except Kennedy was drawing from the idealistic heart of youth, while Trump is sucking up the gall of losers.

Why do people hate Capricorn? FAQ
Because Capricorns win in the end. Because we NEED them. Capricorns have managerial strengths and a powerful sense of values. That's also why their leadership, friendship, or affections can be oppressive and insufferable. We're all grasshoppers to them. MORE
