2013 Yearly Overview

I choose this photo for the year, as this is all about new beginnings and the sun is setting on the old way of doing things. Looking at the coming year, there are some major changes in store for the global consciousness.   

Transit Jupiter goes direct January 30, 2013 EST. Jupiter brings good luck and opportunities our way. To use this energy in the most opportune manner it would be best to accept any opportunities that come your way around this date. In fact with Jupiter moving direct now you may have multiple opportunities to explore this year.

Transit Saturn (Governments and rules) will be going retrograde (backwards) February 18, 2013 EST until July 07, 2013 EST. This will be a time that those in authority will review what they have in place and decide if more or less is required once Saturn goes direct in July.

Transit Saturn is sextile (soft angle) Pluto March 08, 2013 and September 21, 2013 EST. Again as in this 2012 aspect, this will be a time when we will be able to withstand great tests of strength and a time of great achievements for us all. We will be able to stand together and individually to work harder than we ever have in the past bringing forth major breakthroughs and a move forward.

Pluto in Capricorn goes retrograde (backwards) April 13, 2013 EST. Expect some setbacks in Government’s that need to make major reform. This will be a time of review and perhaps back peddling on their parts. Global markets may take a bit of a hit around this date.

Neptune goes retrograde (backwards) June 06, 2013 EST. This energy is about having to revise your dreams and expectations. There is information out there that is being hidden or kept from the masses. Don’t be surprised if they don’t like it when their ideals don’t manifest and they see them slipping away.

Transit Saturn forms a trine (great angle) with Neptune June 11, 2013 and July 19, 2013 EST.  This is a great angle that should bring some stability to the global conscious. People should now be able to finally see some positive results.

Transit Jupiter enters the sign of Cancer June 25, 2013 EST. Cancer rules women and families as well as water, fluid, nurturing and being nurtured. This could be a fantastic time when families and the status of women change from the level they were in the past. Recognition will occur, that growth in the family will bring more stability globally. Women fighting for their families will no longer be classed as property or second class citizens, rather they will rise up and demand their rightful place or leave for a better life elsewhere.

Transit Saturn goes direct July 07, 2013 EST.  This will be a time that Governments and those in authority will decide if more or less is required. Any rules or regulations they had constructed during the Saturn retrograde period may now be put into place. A smoother transition should occur.

Transit Uranus goes retrograde July 17, 2013 EST.  This will be a time for review and if the facts don’t stack up correctly the younger people will go back to their previous attacks. This may be a time of more opposition and a time when their movements will be reviewed.

Transit Jupiter is trine (great angle) Saturn July 17, 2013 and December 12, 2013 EST.  Think of Jupiter as the planet of expansion, if there is too much of something, Jupiter is bound to be involved. Saturn on the other hand is the planet of restrictions and the father figure in a chart. With this positive angle between the two planets there should be some benefits that come from this. Saturn rules Governments, rules and regulations, the father figure, those in authority over you. This angle brings an opportunity to work with many ideas to produce a major working draft for security and how Governments and CEO’s now must function to move forward in these changing times.

Transit Jupiter is trine (great angle) Neptune July 17, 2013. Do you notice how there is so much going on July 17th? It’s like a transformation day for the world. Jupiter’s connection to Neptune now will bring forward new and exciting ideas and inspirations. There may be a new form of film or motion picture developed around this date. Dreams may be more prophetic now so keeping a dream journal could help. The global consciousness has awakened.

Transit Jupiter is opposing (difficult angle) Pluto August 07, 2013 EST.  Think of Jupiter as the planet of expansion, if there is too much of something, Jupiter is bound to be involved. Pluto on the other hand is the planet of endings and major transformation. With this difficult angle between the two planets there should be some need to find a balance between these two planets.

Pluto rules money and income from other sources that you borrow, invest, inherit or from your partner as well as oil, organized crime and rebirth of ideas that transform an industry in some manner. This angle brings difficulty in working with these ideas to produce a major working draft in the global economy. It is an all or nothing type of scenario and to make this work a middle ground will have to be reached. As well those in the know, may be too optimistic in their views. Jupiter tends to over compensate forcing others to think that the problem is over, when in fact reality is not as rosy as it seems.

Transit Jupiter is squaring (conflict angle) Uranus August 21, 2013 EST. There is a major restlessness in the air now. People may see change as the only method of getting out of their current situations. This is a time when folks will be more apt to move in the opposite direction from any pressure. Freedom in general will become very important and people will work very hard to get it now in some area of their lives. The key to working with this transit is to move slowly and carefully (though you will want to rush forward) before committing yourself.

Transit Pluto goes direct (forward) September 20, 2013 EST.  Now will be a great time for Governments to move forward with any plans that they had previously on reform.  

Again as in 2012, Uranus in Aries squares (conflict) Pluto in Capricorn May 20, 2013 and November 01, 2013 EST. To start the energy of Uranus in Aries is about wanting to seek freedom at any cost. This can cause complete severance with anything that you were familiar with in the past. This is about being blunt and outspoken, where folks will not be as considerate of others. Uranus in this sign will like to make independent fresh starts, especially if they shake up anything that is old and familiar (but boring).

This is about shaking up patterns that have been laid down over years and is about sweeping out the old and bringing in the new. Aries rules younger males, men in uniform, fire, anger, blood, war, the act of cutting and surgery. Pluto on the other hand brings endings and transforms what was to what will be. Pluto does this whether you want it or not, no holds barred……..change will occur. Pluto in Capricorn rules Government spending, how a country and corporation is financed, rules and regulations that govern these areas. There could very well be a global banking correction around this date.

The square combines these two energies through a conflict of sorts. No one wants to budge and they’re ready to fight for it. Change will come, but not quietly or easily. The changes that occur now may be a result of social and economic forces that are beyond your control. You may feel that you are being swept along by events you can do nothing about, but the events will have a vital role in your own individual development that you’ll be able to trace back to these dates. 

An outer planet is being triggered now, with the global unrest, as it isn't just one area or country rather it’s systemic. On looking further I noticed that those born from 1988-1995 had Uranus (sudden events) in Capricorn (Governments and rules). As we speak this Natal planet (for that generation) is experiencing a square (conflict angle) with transit Uranus in Aries (military, fighting, fires etc.), at the same time it’s joining with transit Pluto in Capricorn (Governments). 

Transit Jupiter goes retrograde (backward) November 07, 2013 EST. What happens when expansion goes backward? The energy here is about having to review old issues that you may have thought were finished. People with bring up previous grievances and ideas for review. This in itself will cause another overload. Try to become progressive by ending the matters once and for all. 

Transit Neptune goes direct (forward) November 13, 2013 EST. This will be a time to move forward with all those great ideas and see your dreams realized. It will look like all that hard work was worth it. A new spirituality could start around this date. 

Transit Uranus goes direct (forward) December 17, 2013 EST. This is a time when there will be a major shakeup. Issues that deal with Uranus will move forward again, but may have a jump start so to speak. Watch the electrical grid now as it may experience a surge so to speak.

Well that seems to be it for the main themes in 2013. I want to wish you all a wonderful year ahead. Enjoy! Bev.
