Happy New Year! Blessings for an incredible time ahead.
Here are the global and personal questions that await us all in 2019: Who’s the boss? Who has the power? What is dying? And, what is being born?
With three eclipses in Capricorn this year the global focus is on government and rules/regulations. In your chart the focus is on your business life, tradition, duty, family, father and profession.
2019 is prelude to and preparation for, the intense experiences awaiting us in 2020 through to the fall of 2023 as our nation goes through the process of a Pluto return (and a Pluto opposition to its Mercury). Humans would have to live 248 to 250 years to live the length of a Pluto cycle, so we never experience it. Yet, our nation will soon be old enough and energy steadily builds starting now. In 2020, transits to the USA chart show a massive focus (Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn) on two opposing points in the United States chart: Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury in Cancer. Fear is Pluto’s tool. Mercury is the messenger.
There’s a huge power struggle ahead of us along with an attempt to create barriers and structures against the corruption, breakdown, and lawlessness we’ll see at the Government/structural/authoritarian level. Shadows emerge. We must insure they don’t predominate. Conversely, this energy can also be a return to the power of the people’s voice. Need I remind you, there’s a Presidential election in 2020 and it’s a big one given these transits.
As I write, the Government is on a partial shutdown in an attempt to force political agendas. Is this the way a government should be used? I’m not a politician but it doesn’t take one to see the incredible stresses and re-arranging this country has gone through both domestically and nationally. The most recent energy of deconstruction will continue and magnify over the coming months.
The prevailing energy feels like we’re in the tight spot in an hourglass my husband says. Indeed. The United States of America is going through a birth canal and birth is painful my friends, as you know. Yet birth brings new life. We live in a culture that denies death and yet death is also a big part of the next few years. Pluto is the guardian of the underworld after all. It’s time to face the shadows and recognize they’re not nearly as big as they appear. It’s time to press forward into your new life. It’s not as hard as you think. Birth awaits.
BIG CHANGES IN 2019
This is the year in which to position yourself in the right spot for you, so you can not only ride out the coming storms but prosper and thrive also. I’m holding a Solar Power group to assist those in the metaphorical birth canal come forward into their waiting lives with the support and ingenuity of the collective.
Jan 5th: Capricorn Solar Eclipse
January 20th: Please join me and others on January 20th in Palisade CO to go through the hot spots and magic of 2019. It’s a fascinating year. Bring a calendar and your chart for general discussion. https://www.astrologybydulce.com/events/
Jan 20 8 – 10 PM: Leo Lunar Eclipse
February 12: Danger! Mars and Uranus connect in the last degrees of Aries. Rash decision making. Anger. Incidents of road rage or war so please practice peace. Push through on difficult tasks. Stay centered. Keep your cool. Big fire coming on through.
March 7th: Big changes occur as Uranus re-enters earth-based Taurus on March 7th and stays there for the next seven years. Earth changes and capricious financial markets are par for the course during the next seven years. Store water, grow your own food and see if you can diversify your income. Financial markets shift dramatically over this period and currency may change or alter. What to do about that IRA? Dave Ramsey, please weigh in.

July 16: Capricorn Lunar Eclipse
November 11th: Excitement! Drum roll please as little Mercury crosses the face of the Sun on November 11th. The power of the pen and the Press are restored! The importance of the well-thought out turn of phrase is magnified.

If you’d like closer attention and deeper planning to your life, or you feel something has to end and another part begin, please consider my up-coming monthly collective based on the transiting solar energy in your chart, and yourself as a fragment of the Sun. Though we’ll use astrological timing, the group will be much more than astrology. I’m very excited about it.

PLAY BY PLAY FOR JANUARY
1st: Somber beginnings to the New Year as the Sun conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn. News about an authority. Decorum and dignity. Difficulty and disappointment with Government. Seriousness prevails and yet there’s a feeling of optimism as Mars enters Aries bringing fresh energy. Action and commitment are required. Sort through your possibilities and get real about your circumstances. No pie in the sky! Great day for challenging the outdoors and downloading new ideas.
2nd – 4th: the dark Moon encourages hibernation. Let your ideas and plans percolate. Possibilities abound. Think positively.
5th: There’s a total solar eclipse Jan 5th. This is an important precursor to the next two years. The Sun, New Moon and Saturn are opposite the Sun in the United States chart. A new leader emerges. Use this energy personally by being the accountant and manager of your own life. Trim down excesses at this practical New Moon.
6th: Uranus turns direct on the 6th waking us up. Be brave. Know what’s important to you. Initiate some kind of change. Fallout from the eclipse lingers as the Moon connects with Pluto. Fear not!
7th – 8th: Energy shift! Lift up your hearts and rejoice. Venus leaves intense Scorpio for optimistic Sagittarius and the Moon travels through social Aquarius, reminding us that it’s all about for the people, by the people.
9th – 10th: Dreamy days. Let inspiration guide you as the Moon connects with Neptune on the 10th. A poem waits to be written.

11th – 13th: Time for sensible decision making as Mercury connects with business-minded Saturn. Family time is important.

13th – 14th: Bold new initiatives and independent thought and action are encouraged as the Moon moves through Aries and connects with Mars and Uranus. Caution – don’t be careless!
15th – 16th: Easy does it. Keep making progress as the Moon moves through steady Taurus in harmony with the prevailing Capricorn energy. It is all working to your benefit!
17th – 18th: A little schizophrenia is possible. You may feel a little divided and unsure of which alluring path to take, as the quick and waxing Moon dashes through sparkling Gemini and opposite Venus and Jupiter. Have fun and learn something!

19th: Energy builds with the coming Super Moon and the Sun prepares to change signs. Do something practical. Family matters weigh in.
20th: Big shifts and changes! Class with Dulce! The Sun leaves sensible Capricorn for egalitarian Aquarius and the Moon waxes to fullness at a lunar eclipse in Leo. Ideas for a more meaningful, creative and practical existence come through to you over the next few days.

22nd: Lucky day! Expand your horizons. Think positively. Don’t overspend but do invest in your travels and/or your education. Venus and Jupiter connect.
23rd – 24th: Get organized and keep things tidy. These days are excellent for fasting and letting go as the Moon travels through Virgo and opposes Chiron.
24th: News travels! Mercury enters social, intellectual and stubborn Aquarius. Invest your mental energy in something that will reward you over time. Mercury will stay in Aquarius until February 10th.
25th – 26th: Flow and tension. Maximize the dynamic energy by doing qi gong or some other energy practice. Let your inner peace settle outer discord.
27th: Inner tension leads to success in the outer world. Make peace with yourself as the Scorpio Moon squares Aquarian Mercury and Sun.
28th: Connect the dots. Insights highly likely as Mercury meets the Sun. Mental overstimulation possible. Talk to someone. Share ideas. Read (or write) a good book.
29th – 30th: Mood lifts! Freedom is possible. Get out and enjoy yourself as the Moon travels through gypsy Sadge and connects with abundant Jupiter and lady Venus.
30th – 31st: The month ends on a tender note. Your manifestations want to come to life. Feed your dreams with practical action and commitments. (Saturn sextile Neptune)
That’s it folks, more to come in February. In the meantime, please keep the monthly collective gathering in mind. Uranus is the planet that rules group interactions and with its shift into Taurus a few weeks before the group begins on Saturday night, March 23rd we’re going to be grateful for the power, wisdom and energy of the collective to help shift each of us forward. https://www.astrologybydulce.com/events/
