Chiron conjuncts this New Moon, opening up a month unlike any other in recent memory. I don't yet know what this means. Do you have any inkling? If so, just put it aside for now.
Whatever you think or imagine, let go into the 'Be Here Now' as the best strategy to align body-mind-spirit. Chiron tends to evoke what needs to be healed to smooth the serendipity between heaven and earth.
Mythically Chiron is the man-horse who ultimately surrenders his bodily form to transmute a life of eternal pain from an unintended wound. With Jupiter's permission and support from his mate, Chariklo, he takes on his star shape, the constellation of The Centaur in the southern sky. With a natural ability for shapeshifting, Chariklo herself was a river mermaid who transformed into a centaur to be with Chiron. In my version, What Best Serves Love: Chariklo's Story, when he transcends she then shapeshifts back into a mermaid and swims out into the larger sea.
Chariklo is at 18-19 Capricorn now, closing in on Pluto, and already reshaping our reality. She will be involved the intense Saturn-Pluto-Mercury conjunction on the Full Moon eclipse of January 11, 2020 (a partial eclipse, thankfully—we can only handle so much!). This celestial choreography has astrologers buzzing. A special group on call for that maneuver is the mini-generation born from 188-1994, especially 1989-91. If you are in that group, you might want to take advantage of my Capricorn Kids Special reading. Contact me if you are interested.
With this Chironic Pisces New Moon looming, it is not a surprise that The Shape of Water won the Best Movie Oscar a couple of weeks ago.
It is a strange and original film in many ways, evocative and mythical, an unusual love story and a thriller, with impressionistic visuals of bluegreen moving waters. In this film, the water god being is clearly a Chironic character who can heal himself when hurt. At the end he revives and transforms his lover into a river mermaid. Off they swim together. If you haven't seen the movie and think this is a spoiler, it does not dim the magic.
