It’s a busy week in the sky! Mars and Jupiter are conjunct in Scorpio today. Mercury finally leaves its retrograde shadow and moves into Capricorn on Thursday. And when the new moon arrives on January 16, it will join the sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Pluto in the same sign.
So, why I am I feeling so optimistic? Why am I not peering through my fingers like the person in the photo I posted above, wondering what horrors this upcoming week might bring? I suppose it’s because I’m a Karma-loving Capricorn who enjoys seeing bad things happen to bad people. Both Capricorn and Scorpio have Karmic connections: Capricorn through its association with Saturn, and Scorpio through its association with the eighth house. I’m also someone who has a plethora of delightful things happening in his own chart at the moment. I know, right?
Back in October, I predicted that Jupiter’s ingress into Scorpio would initiate a period of Karmic repercussions for many people. I pinpointed the week of Christmas as a specific time when the shit would hit the fan. Now I’ve just read that the Mueller inquiry indicted even more people during that week, but those indictments have remained sealed while the investigation continues. I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that something big is going to happen between Thursday this week and the new moon on January 16. However, it may not come to light until the eclipse in early February.
Considering the current state of American politics, making a prediction like that is like shooting fish in a barrel. Nevertheless, I honestly believe that the big one is coming. I don’t know what it is, or exactly when it will happen, but the planets are telling me that a Karmic reckoning is on the horizon.
I hope so! Saturn in Capricorn is corrective — like pressing a reset button. There’s nothing America needs more right now than to get back to square one. Maybe they can start by getting you-know-who to read the constitution.
