Happy New Year - 2015 Starts with a Bang!

We are officially done with 2014 and 2015 is here. I am sure that there has been a collective sigh of relief heard round the world as the year 2014 drew to a close. I could totally relate to what astrologer Penny Thornton so eloquently stated on her site:

"On Wednesday we bid goodbye to 2014 and welcome in 2015, and if you had a year like I did, you'll enjoy giving the boot to 2014."

Michael Lutin also had some astute perceptions on the legacy of 2014. As we all know Saturn left the sign of Scorpio on December 23rd, and he observed that:

"Either you or someone close to you is healing from a devastating experience. Loss can be a prevalent theme."

Michael Lutin went on to describe the transition from Saturn in Scorpio to Saturn in Sagittarius as one of primitive unconscious instincts towards an awareness of greater meaning and purpose.

The first major aspect of 2015 was Mars in 22 degrees of Aquarius opposing Jupiter in 22 degrees of Leo. On that day I tweeted:

"Mars in Aquarius opposing Jupiter in Leo today starts 2015 with a bang by inspiring us to take action pursuing bug dreams."

This is definitely a big, over the top aspect because Mars in Aquarius is seeking freedom and independence while Jupiter in Leo seeks personal fulfillment. Don't underestimate the power of that Mars in this and its desire for freedom and independence - I have my natal Mars in Aquarius and I have literally marched to the beat of a different drummer my entire life. How else do you explain my becoming a healer, psychic and astrologer?

But exuberance ruled the first day of 2015 with Mars opposing joyful Jupiter. The only fly in the ointment with this aspect was a tendency for tempers to flare. I personally was fortunate enough not to experience it (thank you, generous Jupiter), but if anyone did experience some outbursts, now you know the astrological explanation.

Venus moves into the sign of Aquarius on January 3rd and Mercury follows suit on January 4th, the day of the full moon. The sign change of these two planets supports the theme of having your views supporting your dreams and the potential need for changing or tweaking your perceptions.

The full moon in 14 degrees of Cancer on January 4th promises to be a highly emotional one because it will activate the energies of the Uranus Pluto square. The next and final square will occur on March 17, 2015 in 15 degrees of Aries and Capricorn. Be prepared for this full moon to be somewhat irrational. A full moon in Cancer is inclined to bring awareness of our urge for a secure home versus making a contribution to humanity. Any repressed feelings that we have will come to a head and spill out. Astrologer Molly Hall said that:

"There can be emotional catharsis at this full moon."

I have no doubt that what she says is true. Relationships can grow stronger from the raw truths that are exposed. It's also a good time to nurture ourselves and those we love. Be true to your feelings and don't fear vulnerability. It's time to soften that hard Cancer shell!

This Cancer full moon is opposing Pluto in Capricorn as well as the Sun in Capricorn. The theme of this aspect is to eliminate the things that prevent you from being yourself and to become more at home in our own skin.

And don't forget that both the Sun in Capricorn and moon in Cancer square Uranus in Aries. This potent configuration denotes a powerful time for awareness and transformation. Change is the theme. Uranus delivers awareness and Pluto is the messenger of transformation. Hopefully, this full moon in Cancer will empower us to embrace that change.

Personally, I am in favor of adopting astrologer Janet Sparrow Moon's interpretation of 2015. She observed that:

"Looking ahead, 2015 is going to be a ray of sunshine for most of us. It is going to be so much easier than the past few years. Uranus and Pluto will be finishing their conflict this year, and we do not have any other Superior planetary conflicts (except for Jupiter) happening in 2015."

I don't know about you but I can definitely live with an easier year than the past few years. Happy New Year, everyone!
