A partial solar eclipse is the first New Moon in this New Year, changing the color and tone of our experience early on in 2019. Sandwiched tightly between Saturn and Pluto, this is a 'no-nonsense,' 'Big Happenings are happening' opening window into a fast-tracked year. Ultima Thule, indeed!
 
Capricorn is a serious, sometimes quirky sign that takes earthy experience in its hands like a potter shaping clay. If you have ever used a potter's wheel, you know that by using the pressure of your hands you can shape the clay, even while the texture and weight of the clay responds with its own specific earthy qualities. How do we deepen our relationship with Gaia, the living Earth, amidst the necessities and exigencies of mundane life on Earth— even as She changes and we change in mutual creative and complex choreography, all orchestrated by larger and smaller planetary cycles?
 
We can look for the magic in the mundane, as cosmic waves roll in and raise the frequencies of the whole solar system. We are part of something much bigger and greater, but have our own particular 'job' to do for the whole to function. This eclipse indicates a subtle but definite step up in our response-ability to this mutual embrace and support, the giving and receiving of the life force. How open can you be?
