Interview with Author/Illustrator Donna McGarry

"Donna captures the spirit of the zodiac signs with wit, delightfully original illustrations, and keen insights. This entire series is a fabulous way to introduce someone of any age to the magic of astrology."

The Curse of Dead Horse Canyon: Cheyenne Spirits

An Epic Cross-Cultural Novel by Marcha Fox and Pete Risingsun

Review of Steven Forrest's "The Book Of Neptune"

"If you feel as if you've lost your footing, are sinking in quicksand or adrift on a large body of water with no land in sight, there's a good chance that Neptune is involved.  If that's the case, I can't recommend this book highly enough." --Whobeda

Date: 12 January 2021 Date: 28 January 2021
Position: 23:13 Capricorn (Strongest influence for those born ~16 August) Position: 09:06 Leo (Strongest influence for those born ~31 July)
Natural House: 6th Natural House: 1st
Influences of the 6th house include work, health, service, employees, and pets.  Expect something new to come your way in one of these areas, such as a new job or a new project at work that takes you in a slightly different direction or requires some sort of change.  It's an excellent time to work on your diet or fitness plan or see a healthcare professional if you haven't been feeling up to par.  A new pet could come into your life as well. The 1st house includes your personality, the face you show to the world, and how you "dawn" on people.  A Full Moon in your 1st house often brings about a change in behavior; perhaps you'll give up a bad habit or start pursuing something that takes you to a new level.  Recent experiences that have affected you could cause a subtle change to your persona and thus cause others to see you in a different way.

This month's New Moon in Capricorn is in a close conjunction with Pluto, which gives it a transformational effect. As the first lunation of the new year we can hope that the "transformation" will be a good one. We're still dealing with a rather lopsided distribution of planet around the zodiac, particularly for this event where Venus, the Sun, Moon, and Pluto are in Capricorn; Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury are in Aquarius with Neptune in Pisces, and Mars and Uranus in Taurus. All of the planets including the luminaries are within a degree of a perfect trine.

Think for a moment of the babies born during this time as well as a while into the future while this lasts. To quote from "Astrology's Basics: Examining the Chart's Structure" which I wrote with Ena Stanley, president of the International Academy of Astrology, "The pattern the planets create on a chart has a bearing on a person's temperament with those with a tight cluster of planets like this known as a bundle or wedge. These people tend to concentrate their energies on a specific area or career, and are inclined to be somewhat cautious and reserved until they get their bearings. They rarely open up, usually maintaining some degree of control over how they present themselves." Harrison Ford is an example of someone with this chart pattern. Of course personalities and other traits will depend on the signs and quadrants involved. Of course the moon traverses the zodiac monthly, which changes the pattern slightly. When the Moon opposes the cluster, then the Moon will be the point of expression which will be emotional in nature. An example of someone with that particular pattern is Bill Gates.

We see how these transits play out in the world around us while for those born under them, that energy accompanies their spirit as they take their first breath and enter mortality.

As far as this lunation is concerned, the trine comprises Venus in Capricorn and the Mars/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. First let's look at that conjunction. Mars and Uranus together suggests unexpected, sudden, or rebellious action that is determined to succeed. Uranus is retrograde but is in the process of stationing direct two days later. Thus, a lot of energy is being poured into 6:43 Taurus. When a planet, especially an outer one, stations or an eclipse occurs, that tends to heat up that degree as other planets eventually come along. Mars crosses that degree around the 20th, so pay attention to what might occur, given these two planets are already a volatile combination. What the trine from Venus will accomplish is interesting to ponder, though it suggests approval of whatever this move might be from someone you care about, assuming you're the one about to embark on a sudden move.

Note that the lunation squares the minor planet, Eris, which is typically associated with discord.

This lunation is loaded with squares which also interact with the Mars/Uranus coupling. These include the Aquarius rolling stellium comprising Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury. Aquarius is the zodiacal 11th house which relates to groups, organizations, friends, networking, goals, and big gains. Saturn is dignified as Aquarius' traditional ruler. Each of these planets is approximately two degrees apart, so by definition is actually a massive conjunction as well. This looks like a huge blast of resistance with the potential for explosive events. Stock up on popcorn and hold on to your hats.


On 14 January Uranus stations direct as noted above. The chart is essentially the same as the New Moon except the Moon has moved into Aquarius where she's forming a triangle of potential with the lunar nodes. The lunar nodes tend to act as gateways where one thing leaves to make room for something new coming in, suggesting something is about to change as a result of this confrontation.


The Full Moon on 28 January is in Leo. The lunation continues to pump energy into the Mars-Uranus couple while Saturn, the Sun, and Jupiter, which is conjunct the Sun, are still squaring them. In other words, this conflict is going to last for a while. Pluto and Venus are in partile conjunction in Capricorn watching the action with what you could assume is approval, which causes a fair amount of annoying news reports.

The asteroid Wuhan, associated with the COVID-19 pandemic that decimated 2020, has moved into Pisces, which is the 12th house of the zodiac. This house is generally associated with seclusion, confinement, inspiration, spirituality, hidden enemies and self-defeating behaviors. We can always hope that this suggests it will be locked down at last. If there's anything we don't need it's another year like the last one.


<Sigh> It's been a few months since Mercury was retrograde, but here it comes again when he stations on 30 January. As noted earlier, this will energize 26:29 Aquarius for when the Sun crosses that degree around February 15. The station chart contains a Course Adjustment Loop a.k.a. Learning Triangle, though Mercury is not directly involved. Components include The Sun-Jupiter conjunction being squared by the now infamous Mars-Uranus conjunction with the final member the Moon. This implies that a mediator of some description will bring about a change of course that resolves the conflict that's been brewing most of the month.

Will this be better than 2020?
