Hello "Rebirthing" Wise Owl -

The Moon has moved into Capricorn, making a couple of "Black Moon Days" -- days when one of the stages of your nine-month "energetic renaissance" will be more intensive.

For your reference and data:

1 - The Moon moved into Capricorn overnight (November 21) at 2:14 am ET/9:14 pm UT. 

2 - The Moon then made conjunction with the Black Moon (November 21) at 5:00 am ET/midnight UT. 

3 - The Moon will conjunct Pluto (square Mars to add even more energy!) tomorrow (November 22) at 2:00 pm ET/9:00 am UT. 

4 - The Moon will leave Capricorn Thursday, November 23 at 3:15 pm ET/10:15 am UT.

This means that between now and Thursday (Thanksgiving in the US), the shadow sides of everyone have the potential to reveal themselves, but the potential is higher for you -- those with the natal Sun, Chiron, or Black Moon in Cancer or Capricorn.  ("Natal" just means where the planet was when you were born -- your nativity.)

The "shadow side" is another name for our core fear -- that which is most difficult for us to bear, so much so that we are unaware of it until it is time for us to see it.

When we see our shadow side, it is time to make friends with it.  It is time to understand it.  It is time to integrate it.  It is time to not allow it to control us anymore.  It is time to no longer be in its downfall, where we self-sabotage.

The Black Moon symbolizes integration of the shadow side, which is no easy feat and can be difficult to manage at times.  The irony of the nine-month transit of the Black Moon through a sign is that by the end of the arduous labor, our ability to experience joy is greatly expanded.  Our experience of life is dramatically enhanced. 

Knowledge of this fact -- that the end of the process brings a reward -- gives us what we need to endure the process and work with it, instead of against it.

The nine-month transit of the Black Moon through Capricorn (your nine-month process of moving past your core fears) ends on August 6, 2018 at 1:55 am ET/August 5, 2018 at 9:55 pm UT.  When the Sun rises, like the phoenix, you will also rise.

The signs of Cancer and Capricorn are opposites or polarities.  They encompass each other.  Both energies are in effect at the same time.  So when we look at the natal Black Moon in Cancer, we also look at the issues of the Black Moon in Capricorn, and vice versa.  We see them as fluidly interchangeable.

When the Black Moon is in Cancer, the shadow side/core fear is related to the concept of SUPPORT.  Our "foundation" is in focus.  Because we see the negative or inverse or opposite when the Black Moon is involved, we are tempted to exaggerate the idea that we do not have or will never have what we need to build our future.  It can be harder to envision any future at all.  Financial stress can create mental loops of obsessive worry.  We also see the true nature of our support system or lack thereof.  The nine-month transit of rebirthing your experience of life can be a lonely one.

By the end of the nine-month transit, inevitably we receive a blessing of support.

No one believes it during the nine months.  We are only thinking that we are sinking. 

Maybe you will remember.

When the Black Moon is in Capricorn, the shadow side/core fear is related to the concept of APPRECIATION.  Issues related to being recognized -- even to the point of recognition of one's mere existence or physical presence -- are in focus.  We tend to exaggerate the ideas that no one cares, no one listens, and no one is interested.  We are tempted to give up at times, wondering if we are doing any good at all.  We can feel that things are "thrust" upon us by others.  Black Moon in Capricorn does not like to be discounted; we like to be considered when decisions are being made.  The nine-month transit of rebirthing your experience of life can be a frustrating one.

By the end of the nine-month transit, inevitably we receive a blessing of appreciation.

To ease the process and give you advance knowledge, here are the two times each month until August 6, 2018, that your transit will be most intensive.  These are the days when you will want to increase your self-care and not overload your schedule.  The transit of the Black Moon works on the deepest levels of the psyche to clear away the past and whatever is holding us back.  It is designed to help us rid ourselves of fear and the limitations it brings.  The transit makes us tired, so it is a good idea to rest as much as possible during the process.  Giving ourselves permission to feel things comes before taking steps to remedy or rectify.  Remedy and rectification usually come at the end of the transit, not during it.  So we want to sit back for the long ride:

For more information and to further understand the transit you are having, you can refer to Chapter 5 - "Transits of the Black Moon" in my free ebook, The Astrology of the Black Moon: Guide to Healing the Shadow Side at http://www.oraclereport.com/books/.  This explains much more fully about what goes on with the nine-month transit and what it is trying to do to evolve us.

To some degree, the collective of humanity is experiencing the transit with you, so this report may be helpful to anyone, not just those with their natal Sun, Chiron, or Black Moon in these signs.  Please feel free to disseminate this as you like.

Remember, maybe you can remember that a blessing will emerge at the end of this journey. 

Eyes on the prize!

Much love-
