**SkyView Astrology** Dark Moon, 22 December 2014
Expand your mind and comprehension!
By Katharina Bless
The Dark Moon conjunction is in Sagittarius and Uranus is turning direct now, still stationary for the coming couple days. Five planets are in Sagittarius and Jupiter (retrograde since a few days) in the fire sign of Leo.
The topic we find here is very much about a shift. Interestingly, now when Uranus is turning direct, Jupiter is retrograde ~ the only retrograde planet in the moment.
This is a very clear indication where we have to look at and the focus of the strong Sagittarius energy dominated by Pluto, is definitely not reinforcing the ego, but the transformation and shift! Many things that have been stuck and not been moving forward, are now ready to move. But maybe not into the directions we were expecting?
With the ret. Jupiter, connected to Mercury with a one-and-a-half square we are held back, have to consult with our feelings once again, and double check if this is really the direction that we want to go. Mars in Capricorn is not ready yet to take off and the trine to the North Node, Virgo/Pisces axis, indicates that there might be things that we don’t want to deal with in the moment.
We might not see the goals clearly and feel confused because there is so much changing in the world and so much fear mongering, that it’s not easy to remain calm. But this constellation suggests that we are now totally alert to what is coming into our lives, to deal with things that come up on a daily basis and keep up with a healthy routine (or create one) to remain grounded.
Maybe it even needs an effort to maintain a healthy practical routine, but this is necessary to not fall into the trap of worries, since we can’t understand with the “old program” what is going on and where we are heading.
The very strong Sagittarius topic brings a tendency of overload of information and that we are over-stimulated to the point of making lightheaded decisions, because we can’t estimate what they call forth! Definitely, if we try to make the decisions with the background of “logic” we won’t be able to move forward, because all our “logical understanding” is based on our past! Don’t look back!
The topic of Sagittarius is to move beyond the boundaries and borders of the old and jump over that fence, which holds the old together. Let me give you a picture: Imagine, you move to a beautiful new place, a place that you always wanted or dreamt of, but they speak another language there and also the climate is quite different. You can’t learn the language ahead, you have to be there. Therefore when you move, first you are insecure and have problems with communications. What keeps you grounded within yourself are the little routines (maybe a daily walk or Tai Chi… or a cup of coffee in the morning…) and then you can cope better with all that is new.
Even though the place where you move to is better and more beautiful than the old one, you have to let go of the habit and this is not easy. Our personality is not so flexible and it takes a moment to get out of the old form, the old cocoon!
Pluto in Sagittarius indicates a great need to explore and move on. The need to try new things is very strong and many different experiences can be used to find out what people really want. Maybe it is now the perfect time to let go of an old job or move into a new place, be open for new friendships and/or even new partners. This depends very much on how these constellations affect your personal SkyView Chart.
This constellation indicates changes on all levels, but they might not be executed in the moment, because the personality needs a bit more time to cope. Jupiter just turned retrograde on the 10th and will remain so until April next year. Many thing indicate that time to come is a redefinition of our lives and next spring many things will finally manifest.
This time, when the sun moves through Sagittarius gives us a great chance to look at things with a different perspective, maybe more open and receptive. If you manage to let the old believes behind you and dare to think that something new could come up, you are on the right track. Saturn will move into Scorpio in the first January week, which is the perfect timing because the upcoming full moon on Jan 5th will bring another blast of energy with Sun/Pluto conjunction, which we better prepare for!
Our intuition in this process is very important. Since our mind is polluted with programs and all kind of brainwash, especially about good and bad, which is totally manipulated, it’s better to listen to our intuition. Maybe this would be a good time to start (again) a meditation practice, just a moment to quiet down to be able to listen to the inner voice when the mind-chatter is gone. One of my members in the Silver Dove Network just posted a great article about meditation, which clears a lot of misunderstandings. Have a look at that!
Chiron still in Aquarius is involved in the chart with half sextile, and a quintile to the sun, is helping us to digest the new things and be open for changes. Uranus is in conjunction with the South Node and might bring up some “Catastrophobia” memories, very deep buried anxieties and fears from times long ago, connected with the 6000 years before the “His-Story” and if you are interested to dig deeper, you can find a great book on this topic from Barbara Hand Clow with this title or the latest one, “Awakening the Planetary Mind”, which is a summary of the Catastrophobia plus more. This would be a gift for this holiday season that would bring a lot of great insights and understanding.
Often I ask myself what I would do if I hadn’t had the chance to read so many books, to explore so many avenues that made me open for things I did never even think of. The constellation that we have at the present time, makes it is crucial to move beyond, to leave old boundaries behind and start again to create our lives instead of reacting to situations!
We are not here to be sheep for an elite to control us. This is wasted energy and intelligence. To awaken again to a healthy way of living, we have to take action and listen to the inner voice, the divine voice within. This voice is not connected to organized religion, interpreted by people who didn’t have the high consciousness level of a master! There is, within each of us, a master already, because before we came here to experience these low levels of consciousness, we have been there…and it’s not really about evolution this life, but to remember who we really are.
The clarity about who we really are, is hidden behind the mists and clouds of brainwash and programming, which will lift when we are open and shift consciousness to a higher level ~ like after a long night the sun rises again from the mists of the early morning!
Use this great constellation and the sun transit through Sagittarius to actively shatter your boundaries. Do something you usually don’t do and go beyond the daily routine without loosing it. Maintain consciously some habits to keep you grounded but expand beyond. Look at it as some kind of rehearsal for the new to come!
It’s not yet completely the time to break through, although you may, but more to explore the possibilities and to come to the conclusion that there is more….expand your mind and comprehension!

**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ degrees different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.silverdove.net
For your convenience I list the dates when the sun enters the signs:
Aries: 25° April 18, Taurus: 36° – May 13, Gemini: 28° – June 21 Cancer: 20° – July 20, Leo: 36° – Aug 10, Virgo: 44° – Sept 16, Libra: 23° Oct 30, , Scorpio: 25° – Nov 23, Sagittarius: 33° – Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° – Jan 20, Aquarius: 25° – Feb 16, Pisces: 37° – March 11
The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
