January 20th - February 19th 2020
Element: Air/Mental Level
Modality/Season: Fixed/ Mid Winter
Ruled by: Uranus. Old ruler: Saturn. Spiritual ruler: Jupiter.
Monday the Sun leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius.
We have now reached the middle of Winter, usually abound with frost, cold and darkness.
However, the days now grow visibly longer. In fact, daylight increases by double speed during the month of Aquarius, compared to the month of Capricorn.
Winter flowers, little messengers of spring, now pop up as another visible sign, that brighter times and Spring truly lies ahead.
Winters frost and ice floes creates patterns, reminding us that there is a pattern in everything, and that everything is part of a pattern. When these patterns are analysed and understood, it’s possible to mentally jump ahead in time and as a bulb of lightning receive ideas and inspiration. People with strong Aquarius/Uranian emphasis have a natural ability for this and are thus often perceived as ahead of their time, perhaps even genial, but often also as weird and eccentric, because they pick up currents that other don’t - or won’t for a long time.
As you could read in the 2020 update, the future oriented, alternative and freethinking Aquarius will be a sign in strong focus in 2020 and ahead – so the Aquarius energy is highly relevant for all of us now, no matter our signs and individual charts.
The New Moon on Friday the 24th is a good time to get acquainted with this energy. (see more below soon).
If you have set goals and resolutions at the beginning of the new calendar year, that are truly important to you, be aware that a crisis point typically will rise now, as the Aquarian energy comes in with a strong need for rebellion against Capricorn’s disciplined and controlled energy. Now, it’s freedom and the need to blow up limitations that will prevail instead.
Which is why it’s now important include freedom in your goals, if you’re to succeed with them. Focus on how it will make you feel more free, when your particular goal is obtained. Seek and find alternative routes to get there and preferably seek out kindred spirits with the same goals and aspirations to get moving along instead of getting stuck.
We’re still in the middle of the direct hit of the Saturn – Pluto conjunction, where practically everything can happen, at any time, that last until the day of the New Moon on the 24th.
However, it’s not like it’s getting calmer anytime soon as the likewise heavy and distinct Pluto – Eris square will reach exactitude just a few days after that.
So, the month of Aquarius is still hotspot time with and wild, transformative and intense energies.
The month’s Full Moon on the Leo/Aquarius axis will be on February 9th. Read more below when the time gets near.
Have a happy month of Aquarius – free yourself 😊❤

As stated in the 2020 update, the future oriented, alternative and freethinking Aquarius, fighting for community, freedom and equality, is a sign that will come especially into focus during 2020 and forward, meaning the Aquarius energy has something to teach us all now, no matter our individual signs and charts.
The New Moon in Aquarius on Friday is a beneficial time to get better acquainted with that energy, since high doses of it will be available, when both our Luminaries meet 4°21 in the sign, at 21.42 (GMT – adjust to your local time).
As always, the New Moon is well suited for setting goals, initiating things and manifesting what you wish to bring into your life.
As mentioned above, it is now important to insert freedom into your goals, if they are to succeed. So, focus on the feeling of freedom it will give you once you………..
Think of alternative ways to get there and preferably seek out other likeminded with the same goals and aspirations to get moving instead of getting stuck.
Beneficial initiatives during the Aquarius New Moon (that are further embellished by an aspect from Aquarius’ ruler Uranus) are:
- Anything that frees you and concerns freedom
- Shaking things up
- Thinking outside the box
- Doing something different than you’re used to
- Seeking out alternative methods, info, news, sources, thinking and/or treatments
- Focusing on friendships, kindred spirits and networks.
The one “direct hit” of the Saturn – Pluto conjunction lasts until the same day as the New Moon, the 24th.
So, as the last day of the precise phase of that heavy aspect, expect it to be a powerful New Moon day.
So far, this intense period, that began on December 31st (combined with the Eclipse season that is now over) has consisted of:
The raging of the elements (natural or otherwise (!)…) extreme fires, earthquakes, erupting volcanoes, earth holes, flooding, storms, snow records etc. – War drums that have been banging wildly – Plane shot down – Hollywood elite roasted on open screen – “Unfortunate focus” on various royals and distinct changes in the British royal household - The death of the Sultan of Oman (Oman was, interestingly enough, one of the few places in the world, in the direct zone of the annular Solar Eclipse on December 26th ) – Law proposals taken from the dark pages of the Saturn + Pluto script -Violent protests around the world against governments and powers - Media silence on a lot of what’s really going on – Shorter lasting crashes of various systems – Downsizing, downgrading, cutbacks - More reveals of fraud – Spread of mysterious Asian virus – Impeachment/US – Government resignation/Russia - Powerful mass meditations and Light rituals around the globe….
And we’re not done yet…. The precise phase still has a couple of more days to go and the conjunction will still be active and very intense and no doubt bring more distinct world events for a long time to come this year, after Friday – and we also have the likewise heavy Pluto – Eris square reaching exactitude just a few days later.
So, there’s no way around it, it’s another turbulent and transformative Moon cycle we enter on Friday.
Take good care of yourself, so that you get through it alright – and use the energies wisely.
Happy New Moon ❤

Lunar Eclipse at the
The next and last Eclipse, in the Eclipse season we are currently in, takes place Friday evening, when the Moon reaches 20°00 Cancer, exactly opposite the Sun in Capricorn, at the year’s and the decades first Full Moon.
A Lunar Eclipse is already an extra powerful Full Moon – a strong energy portal with influx from other dimensions, as well as a special release opportunity.
When Mercury, Ceres and not least Saturn and Pluto on top of that joins the Sun opposite the Moon, this will be an extremely distinct and powerful Lunar Eclipse energetically. This Penumbral Eclipse will be active at least 4,5 months ahead.
At the same time the Moon is strongly placed in its own sign, Cancer, so expect emotions to run high, and with the accompanying energies triggered, this could be a gigantic emotional rollercoaster. So, it’s very important to take extra good care of and nurture yourself, in the days surrounding this Eclipse. The Crab is known for its hard shell that protect its soft inner core and it’s wise for all of us to activate a similar shell now.
Cut out all unnecessary distractions and chores, make room in your calendar and concentrate on what you wish to release and then later on what you wish to bring into this world.
Preferably, think larger than just your own personal wishes and focus on the rot, corruption and other things that has outplayed its role or never should have existed here on Earth, that now needs to come to an end…and then on how the world ideally could be and then start to manifest it.
Since this is just two days before the culmination of the Saturn – Pluto conjunction; the end of a 38 year cycle and the beginning of a new one, this Eclipse is a HUGE release opportunity, way out of the ordinary.
A huge gathering of heavenly bodies is now placed in Capricorn. As counter action to the cold, harsh, calculated “all about business and the bottom line” attitude this accumulation brings, the Moon in Cancer reminds us of the importance of including feelings, empathy and care to the equation.
The North Node is in Cancer as well, underscoring that empathy and care is what we need to aim for to create the right balance and reach our highest growth potential.
Jupiter however conjuncts the South Node and emphasizes past issues, that need to be dealt with before we can truly move forward.
Collectively, Eclipses in Cancer typically focus on:
Change in public emotions.
National security issues.
Water - whether it’s lack of water or too much of it, as in heavy rainfalls and flooding or issues concerning drinking water.
Food and comestible.
Caretakers and care workers as well as the recipients of care, and the quality and the conditions surrounding the care given and received.
Housing, housing market.
History – whether it’s rewriting history, because of new information surfacing or new history in the making.
There have been huge cracks in our foundation for a long time and with the prevalent energies, parts of the foundation will inevitably collapse and crash within the near future, followed by work on creating a new foundation. Preparation for this is advisable now!
Finally, this Eclipse will bring a huge influx of feminine, goddess energy, for us to anchor to become a larger part of the globe and its inhabitant’s foundation.
All the other planets involved adds their symbolism and themes as well.
Mercury adds information, research, news and the sharing of knowledge – as well as the intermediaries of it.
Ceres adds the question and clarification of whether something will be allowed to grow and thrive or not.
Saturn and Pluto’s joint themes are also triggered:
Distinct world events – societal reformations – changes; in state and authorities powers – in citizens right- in leadership and management style – in labour force conditions – resistance – censorship, surveillance and social behaviour regulation – revelations of fraud, corruption, abuse of power and sinister agendas – decay, collapse and crash of known systems and structures, societal & too big to fail institutions – scarcity – consequences, responsibility, payback, settling karma.
Very violent world events has previously been taking place, when Saturn and Pluto butted heads, (both World Wars, as well as 9.11 and the War on Terror began during S-P aspects!!!)
The last days – after this Saturn – Pluto aspect reached the 1 degree before exactitude point, has predictably also offered saber rattling out of the ordinary.
Someone hidden in the dark clearly knows the planetary energies and is determined to abuse them once again by trying to provoke a sick repeat performance to further enhance sinister agendas.
Eris also squares the Saturn-Pluto conjunction and further enhances the opportunity for strife and conflict, especially as Eris turns direct the day after the Lunar Eclipse and is even more powerful.
Uranus also turns direct on Saturday adding instability, and seemingly out of the blue shocks and happenings but also ground-breaking awakening energies to the mix.
It’s important that humanity start finding other ways to live out these transforming energies and that we don’t keep on buying and accepting lame excuses and explanations for starting conflict and wars. No, we do NOT consent!
Do not automatically believe in official announcement or explanations. As mentioned, Mercury is involved and would like you think for yourself and do your own research, before making up your mind about what’s really going on.
This is very heavy and dark energies besieging us and the near future might very well bring oppression, attacks, extreme events and distractions.
At the same time, this is also energies bringing so huge changes that, used right, might in the long term (especially towards the end of the year, see 2020 update ) help bring about brighter times and the return of the Light on Earth.
Several mass meditations are planned for this weekend, making use of this special accumulation of crucial transforming, karmic, both ending and beginning cycles and planetary energies for the creation of a better, more peaceful and just future world.
And all the days during the weekend are truly well suited for Light work and meditation, whether you choose to do it synchronously with others or at your own time.
Friday is especially suited for release and letting go and Saturday and even better Sunday is especially suited for manifestation in terms of how you would like the new cycle to unfold.
If you have important placements between 17-23° Cancer/Capricorn you will be especially influenced by this Eclipse. Exactly how is determined by the involved, rulership, aspects etc. If we’re talking 21-23° you’re already besieged by Saturn and Pluto and you will no doubt be in a distinct and transforming period of your life already, which this Eclipse can act as a further trigger for.
For everyone, the houses containing 20° Cancer and Capricorn pinpoints the areas of life that will be especially focused on, where changes and growth opportunities can occur within the next 4,5 month.
Take care and get well through this Eclipse and major conjunction – the last count down has now begun…
As this is a Penumbral Eclipse, it will be hard to detect visibly, as the light of the Moon will only be slightly dimmed, but there will be an entirely different energy to the Moon, than a usual Full Moon.
The Eclipse starts at 17.07 and peaks at 19.10. The Full Moon is exact at 19.21 and the Eclipse ends at 21.12. (GMT – adjust to your local time).
Use the energies wisely and with caution for you own sake and the good of the community. But also know that you are way more powerful, than you probably think.
Happy Lunar Eclipse in Cancer & culmination of the Great Stellium in Capricorn – Let the Light break on through the darkness❤

During the Summer, we have several times experienced Mars trigger previous, but still active Solar Eclipses, which is far from unusual, as Mars is known as the classic eclipse trigger, who several times a year reaches former eclipse degrees and activates the themes of the eclipse in question and bring them further along.
Now, we’re heading into a more rare and longer lasting trigger, as Saturn from October 13th – November 13, will stay around the eclipse degree 15°25 Capricorn. This partial Solar Eclipse took place on January 6th.
Where Mars comes in and activates and speed things up, Saturn comes in and hits the breaks, slows down, stops and ends.
Eclipses triggered and ended by Saturn thus often bring distinct endings with it.
Eclipses in Capricorn typically focus on societal institutions and pillars, leaders of state, government, authorities, business world & people, industry, leaders, labor organizations and elders.
When Saturn triggers an eclipse, weaknesses and failures in structures and systems will be tested to the limit, and not everything will be able to handle the pressure. So, something could very well end up breaking completely down.
Huge changes could happen, where power, influence and status could change hands, are taken from some and handed over to others.
When Saturn triggers an eclipse, limitations, restrictions, scarcity and lack is often a theme as well. Something is removed, cut down, downsized, saved on, something will no longer be available and must be done without.
Since this furthermore is taking place in Saturn’s own sign, Capricorn, Saturn only has more power behind it, thus making the probability of the above things happening even higher. Furthermore, add the fact that Saturn is also in an important aspect to the distinct and transformative Pluto, making chances of distinct events particularly high.
Among other things Pluto represents common resources and economy, and since some of the faster moving planets, including another values & economy indicator, Venus, will be opposing Uranus in Taurus (a placement that in itself predicts financial changes), at the same time, financial instability and crisis, could very well be an important part of what will be taking place.
Debt, consequences and bills to settle and repay will likely be a huge theme, both financially and on a karmic level.
However, a Saturn triggered eclipse can also be a time for collecting and cashing in karmic bonus points as well.
On a personal level, the eclipse in January was about taking on more responsibility, to a larger extent setting the framework and structure for your own life, taking fully on your inner authority, as outer authorities, leaders, societal institutions and the whole structure of society might not necessarily be something you can count on, to the extent you might previously had, any longer.
The eclipse also focused on your career and public profile, and also the things you do, that you don’t necessarily make all of your - or any - money on but is a calling and a higher life purpose for you.
These areas and themes will be activated the coming month and might also come to some kind of climax.
A while ago I saw the words: “October 2019 has been written and planned for a very, very long time”
How exactly this will unfold, we will know in only a few weeks.
The planetary energies certainly confirm, that this is a particular distinct month, followed by other distinct months, as it’s a crucial Fall season and Winter half year, we have entered.
In other words, it’s “hotspot time” again – and a long one at that.
We’ve been through a lot, this past decade, where have lived through countless tumultuous hotspots, we’ve been shaken and are hopefully both more awake and jaded now, and thus also better suited for getting through this heavy and long hotspot. It’s wise to be prepared for a bit of everything, really, as we have reached the point where things will begin to fall apart.
At the same time this gives us a special opportunity for getting rid of a lot of rot and put something new, healthier, better and more just in its place. So, it’s important to not let these heavy energies get us down, so that we waste the opportunities, that October and the following months also offer.

Early October 2019
New and Full Moon in General
In the course of a year, we traditionally have a few times where we stop, reflect and say goodbye to what lie behind us, before we begin a new chapter, with hopes, wishes and goals for what lies ahead. Usually this is when we enter a new calendar year in January and at our birthday. Both New Year and birthdays are based on the Suns return to a particular point in its cycle through the Zodiac.
There's another cycle, though, based on both the Moon and the Sun, and if you are conscious of that cycle, you get far more opportunities during a year, to start over, begin a new chapter and to let go of the old that no longer works for you, and to do this in alignment with the prevailing energies, at the New - and Full Moon.
At New Moon the Sun and Moon, are in the exact same spot, in the same Zodiac sign. When both Luminaries are in the same sign, it creates an enormous power and focus on that particular signs qualities and energy, which we all, no matter our individual "star sign", can access, if we open up and tune in at the right moment. That would be as close as possible to the moment where the New Moon is precise.
During this phase the Moon is invisible, it has just finished a cycle and begins a new one, while still in hiding. This is why there's a strong "new beginning - energy" around the New Moon, where it's very beneficial to start over, take new initiatives, set new goals and make wishes and plans for the future. There simply is no better time to start something new.
During a year the Sun and Moon makes these joint stops through each sign in the Zodiac and through all or most "houses" /life areas of your individual natal chart.
Intentions, initiatives and goals that are aligned with the particular signs qualities and energy will be the most powerful and effective, but in theory you can wish for anything, as long as it's in within "the highest good for all involved".
As close as possible to the time after the New Moon is precise, it's beneficial to open up, tune in, meditate, visualize, do vision boards, manifest, write down goals and intentions etc.
(The exception is when the Moon is "Void of course" (makes no more aspects to other planets while it's in that sign), then it's better to wait until the Moon has moved into the next sign. This is a technical thing, that you won't have to worry about, as I will always mention in my New Moon reports, if the exact New Moon moment isn't the best time to work with the New Moon energy and when it will be instead).
One beneficial thing you can do is to write up to 10 goals and wishes on a list. Whenever one is fulfilled, make a new list with the remaining goals. Update the list and add new things if you like at every New Moon. It's always a good idea to have a mix of short- and long-term goals, as well as a mix of smaller and bigger wishes.
At both the New and Full Moon the door to other dimensions is wide open around the precise time. Deep insights and important messages can reach you, as you will be much more receptive.
At Full Moon the Sun and Moon are 180 degrees apart, in opposite signs of the Zodiac and the focus is on both the differences and the common theme on the mutual axis made by the two signs.
In this phase the Moon rises, when the Sun sets, and as clearly seen in the sky, it has reached its maximum potential.
The Full Moon is alluring, fascinating, beautiful, mystical and magical. For some it's also disturbing, many can't sleep, some are more prone to mood swings, some easier lose their temper and planned things doesn't always go as intended.
The Full Moon energy is way better for improvisation, for letting go and going with the flow than for the planned and controlled.
With this energy, it's beneficial for you to let go, not just of yourself, but also in the sense of letting go of and releasing unwanted things in your life.
While at the New Moon you should focus on what you wish to manifest and actively bring into your life, at the Full Moon it's about cleansing and releasing everything in your life, that might once have had its purpose, but now no longer works for you and stands in the way of your wellbeing and balance.
One could also say that the New Moon has a more Solar/yang/"masculine" feel; here you get to be an active co-creator of your life, while the Full Moon has a more Lunar/yin/"feminine" feel, here the energy is more out of control, you get to release and receive.
A beneficial Full Moon ritual - could be to write down the things you wish to let go of, (once again preferably as close to the exact Full Moon moment as possible) on pieces of paper and then burn them (safely), piece for piece.
If you don't have anything in particular you wish to let go of at a Full Moon, but perhaps are looking for some sort of guidance, open yourself up and see what comes to you, as you will be much more receptive than usual.
And finally, of course, make sure to get out there and take in the beauty and magic of the Full Moon in the evening/ night sky.
Every year has several eclipses at New and Full Moon, some of them won't be visible where you live, but they will still be highly influential on an energetic level.
A Solar eclipse is an extremely powerful New Moon and a Lunar Eclipse is an extremely powerful Full Moon. Both has an effect that reaches far beyond a normal New/Full Moon. The eclipses are the Universes way of pinpointing certain themes, that we collectively are meant to take a closer look at. On a personal level, the eclipses pinpoint specific areas of your life that will be of focus in one way or another, for the coming future.
New & Full Moon, Eclipses and your personal chart.
Obviously to make the best use of both the New and Full Moon - and the Eclipse - energies, you should use them along with your personal chart.
Then it won't just be the particular signs involved (that are common for all us), but also the specific life areas they take place in (which varies from person to person) as well as involving the planets in your personal chart, that might be triggered. It then becomes a deeply personal way; you can work with the energies of our two Luminaries; the Sun and the Moon. During a year you will get through all the areas of your life and during a whole lifetime, different planets in your chart will be triggered and add to the meaning.
Here you can order my special New - And Full Moon Chart which tells you where the New and Full Moon will be in your personal chart a year ahead and how you can make the best use of - and align yourself beneficially with the Solar and Lunar energies, in a way that only you can, since every person and their personal chart is completely unique.
