The Cazimi moon (moods) is a special "light" effect by virtue of minor degrees. It means "heart of the Sun" in Arabic.
It is an alignment of the Sun (image) where the moon's center crosses over the center of the solar disc. In an instant you can get to the heart of a matter whether that be a person, place or thing.
This is not a common occurrence... and everyone can benefit. It's brief encounter touches upon something ever so lightly and yet it leaves an indelible impression. It's quick too, it seems to flit in from out of nowhere.
This is happening in the Dog (aka: Libra) (serves duty) sign where a tense square between the Dog and the Ox (aka: Capricorn, cow, buffalo) (rules status) is about to begin. Pluto the dwarf (fate) is at the near zero point of the Ox, the early stage of a 15 year transit. Soon it will lock horns with Saturn the taskmaster (time) which is moving into the Dog sign for the next 2.5 years on 10/29. The hammer is down, the shoe drops.
But somehow we have this extraordinary, divine grace built-in at the early stages of a long, tight rope. It's "moon beam" sends down light in a new direction to illuminate a better path. Follow the light and don't falter. This dog new moon is a brave lion heart! True romance and affection gets more than half a chance.
New Moon's by nature are a start phase and through this one Saturn is quite nearby -but not yet able to take charge. This gives up the idea of some sort of stay or writ, especially since the Dog rules courts and transportation. Becoming somehow constrained and or consigned also comes to mind.
But there clearly is a silver lining in this purse so look for the catch that opens the vault. Follow the rainbow of good vibes that stream in to heal and prosper your sense of well being. Lean on the good side.
There is no avoiding what will come, the wheels are already set in motion. Saturn's rings are all powerful and Pluto is the counterbalance that tips the scales. The trick will be to see past the limitations that arise so we can proceed onward to success in spite of setbacks or holdovers.
Treat every problem like it is doing you a favor of some kind. This converts it's energy into manageable circumstances. Learn now and begin to practice - letting go of control. This is the last rest stop on a treacherous trail along a rocky crag that leads to the sublime.
Foremost the Dog is a soldier for life, love, liberty and justice for all. Those who forget that higher motive will suffer most. Do yourself a favor and be on the right side of this lunar glow. Live and let live, forgive and forget, don't bury the bone or play the victim. And no martyr's either, please... unless you have an iron clad, union contract.
Rat - (aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose)
The rat rules the mind and it has finally been dealt a fortunate hand when looking beyond the obvious. They say sex is in the brain. If that is even remotely true then this erogenous zone has been under-construction for quite some time. Now that a roundabout method has opened up some of the most congested areas, new uses for gray matter will be found. In essence every time you use the new loop hole to get past the trauma and drama you translate excess energy that lights the eye of the Dragon. The benefits and rewards of this feature will be many and numerous to the masses. More than ever imagined. So it seems the gain will supplant the initial pain of elective surgery. To manage an ardent admiration for a love quest de-stress and refrain from any past tense.
Ox - (aka: Capricorn, cow, buffalo) - transits: Pluto the Dwarf planet (fate)
The ox governs status which has gotten itself bogged down in red tape and the seven veils of bureaucracy. But without it the alternative transparency has revealed a stock pile of dirty laundry. Sooner or later old business has to go through the wash once and for all. Dirty secrets stain reputations and need a deep, steam clean with new conditioning. Power-up the turbo wash and get that guy thing right out of your hair. You must give up wanting - if you are to ever get what you hope for. Excessive power plays are numbing the mind and you must understand that the real battle has yet to begin. Save yourself some anguish and bypass the remote control issues. No presets are required for endless opportunities to release, let go and grow.
Tiger - (aka: Aquarius) - transits: Neptune God of the Underworld (harmonic) (retrograde), Jupiter the Grand Duke (benefic)
The tiger projects vision with forward gusto for the sake of adventure. Yet sometimes success comes suddenly when you least expect it after a long, hard haul. Those around you may be quick to imply that for you this is natural, but you know differently. In the blink of an eye you will glimpse the enormous potential that sits waiting for you to tap it's proceeds. At first you may only casually get a sense of this splendid trajectory but soon enough you will be in possession of it's finer points and mysteries. Your destination is really a departure to a whole other pathway. One that leads the industry and humanity into an enhanced realization.
Hare - (aka: Pisces, cat, rabbit, fish) - transits: Uranus the Chaos (order)
The hare saves grace and so you wouldn't want anyone to know just how relieved you've been recently to discover that (finally) everyone elses weals and woes seem more dark and dense than your own. In fact somewhere along the lines things have started to loosen up and to lighten it's death grip. The pressure is not entirely off but the valve is no longer sticking or fixating on an end point that is clogging up the system. Expectations have grown far and away from the old set of standards you use to apply. Duck feathers are layered over your fur giving you a new resilience to the ever-changing times. You know something about yourself now that is making all the difference in the world.
Dragon - (aka: Aries) All Hallows Eve (witches new year) on 10/31
The dragon instills vitality to invigorate and stimulate the economy of our own sense of being. Leadership roles have been tested and found wanting. Opposition to the newer models are showing signs of wear even before they have been fully vetted. You may have no choice but to get back to the drawing board and dive back into the water. Submerge yourself in the knowing you seek to attain. And stop taking so much for granted. You've bitten off the quick. If you only see what you think you see, with no possible other options... then you will miss the "x" that marks the spot. It is there where you will find piles of buried treasure are hidden. Dragon's by nature lead complex lives but don't let that keep you form seeing the simple solutions and get back to basics.
Serpent - (aka: Taurus, snake) - transits: Full Moon (moods), Dia de los Muertos (All Souls day) on 11/1
The serpent distills it's wisdom into the elixir of life to mold yet another potential future from the compression that has consumed it over the years. It takes you back to where you started but on a whole new plateau, a wider platform with expansive folds. You are less apt to ever want to undo the past now that you know where it leads you. Preferring to just let it be, there is no residual remorse. The glow at the end of this tunnel is a beckon with a siren that recently went off in the silence of your daily prayer. A haunting kind of passion has drawn you in like a moth to the flame. There is no danger in pursuing this guiding light only absolute certainty and clarity. Pull on this thread, as it leads you to the best part of your story.
Horse - (aka: Gemini)
The horse delivers power in the last stretch of the raceway to get over the finish line in the nick of time. You've been clocking the days to a brighter future and wondering if just-winging-it, to-get-by is now an everyday kind of ticktock movement. Levity is the thing that defies gravity, do not get bogged down in the swamp of past associations. This is only the first act in a long running, series with a whole new character set and value system. Since you really want to help, allow inspiration to be your guide. Stay well positioned on the observational, upper deck so you can reach out for the grand opportunities as they float by on the ocean breeze. Steady your nerves and borrow some reserve to make sure nothing gets out of hand.
Goat - (aka: Cancer, sheep, deer)
The goat desires peace and is tireless in it's undying pursuit of this bliss modal. Goats succeed often since they can simply and surely wear you down over time. The competition is mowed down like any patch of grass or brier bush beneath them. No metal, glass, fabric or foreign object gets in their way, nothing stops them. They nibble and chomp away at whatever is in front of them and will nip at your heels giving you no peace until they get theirs. Resistance is futile. While you were busy sleeping they moved past your marker and spilled your beans. Since you can't beat them, join them. They bring bushels of creativity to the table with charm, grace and a stiff wit. They remake the landscape of things through their very presence.
Monkey - (aka: Leo) - transits: Mars the War God (energy)
The monkey drives ambition like a dune buggy over the sand pits to the water's (consciousness) edge. On other side of this quicksand is the deeper quagmire yet to unfold. And yet it is over this desert wasteland that we must cross to get to our promised land of milk and honey. New sources of power are just barely beginning to emerge. Partner up with your secret friend the serpent to provide the magic to harness the medium. Magnetic waves and charms can be adapted to serve a wider set of goals. This new style fusion is likely to provide a lasting legacy to draw upon endlessly. Grin and bare it all!
Bird - (aka: Virgo, Phoenix, Rooster) - transits: Saturn the Taskmaster (time)
The bird esteems virtue and your glory days are dawning if you can get the bits of scatter out of your brain. Saturn's long confrontation with Uranus is essentially all but over for good. The release of energy is melting the blockage of biomass like our polar ice caps. Fast and without constraints. Nothing seems to be resolving a larger set of issues still looming large but when you rise above it all you will see the key. This position is exalted and the gifts that Saturn deposits by the door (as it departs for another 25 years loop around the beltway) are legendary in scope and scale. Make sure your passages are all open and crystal, clear.
Dog - (aka: Libra, Lion) - transits: Sun King (image), Cazimi New Moon (Hunter's moon), Venus our Lady (love & luxe), Mercury the Messenger (news), Saturn the Taskmaster (time) on 1/29
The dog serves duty and in the coming days you will wonder if the world has conspired for you or in some cases, against you. When Saturn lands in your sign on the 29th you will begin a 2.5 year trial period and the law of unintended consequences will preside. Pluto immediately sets up a square position in the Ox. This on the surface will seem harsh but to take it in this way would be an error in judgment. I urge you to hold back on making up your mind pro or con. You have friends in a higher court of appeals. A curse is really a blessing in disguise and it is now your soul mission to find us a way out of this maze. Get out the bloodhounds and pick up a fresh scent along the trail.
Pig - (aka: Scorpio, Boar) - transits: Sun King (image) 10/22, Mercury the Messenger (news) on 10/28
The pig confers nobility and now more than ever is a great time to entertain the masses by pulling a fluffy, white rabbit out of a black, top hat. The thing you thought defines you now seeks to confine you. There is however a silver spoon in the mix and it's got your name specially engraved on it. In fact there is a whole collection of benefits awaiting confirmation of delivery, more than you know or realize. I'd say you can't do better than your best, so stick to that game plan. You are a master of disguise so let nothing bother you and become the thing you want to be by dressing up for it. Then get busy snuffing out those elusive truffles where angels fear to tread. Fortune favors the brave.
