Transcript of Capricorn, Aquarius, and the Astrology of Revolution
Hello! Thank you for joining me. I am Marina Ormes, the founder of Astrology Heals at astrologyheals.com.
Today I want to talk to you about the eclipses—the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn and what’s happening with Capricorn energy.
Capricorn in the Zodiac
Capricorn is a sign of the zodiac and it is ruled by Saturn. Capricorn has to do with the structures and foundations of things. It relates to our systems, institutions, and how things operate, so the foundations they are built upon. It also has to do with planning and our plans for how things will go forward in the future.
Capricorn is also the sign of our limitations. It is the sign of hard realities. We feel our limitations with Capricorn—certainly a global pandemic is a great example of that. We are feeling our mortality, our limitations, and where we do and don’t have control as human beings. It is also about what we have to learn and how we can be more effective in laying foundations and creating systems and institutions that work better.
The bright side of Capricorn is that it gives us this invitation, an opportunity, to truly create things in a way that it that we want them to be. It’s an opportunity to lay new foundations—to create new systems and structures, and to really get clear about what’s important to us, what we want things to look like, and how we want it to be.
This is true also certainly of our experience of systemic racism and what is happening in the collective. We are starting to have these deeper conversations about it much more openly and pervasively. This is a good thing because it can help us to move in a direction of—taking advantage of—this opportunity to create things that that are more the way we want them… to be better, more the way they should be.
A Taste of Aquarius
In recent months, we have had a taste of Aquarian energy with Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, going into Aquarius. Now this week, as I’m recording this video, it is just going retrograde back into Capricorn.
With Saturn in Aquarius, we had this taste of rebellion and revolutionary ideas. We had more humanitarian thinking and working toward a cause—that is the hallmark of Aquarius. Aquarius is about change, about overthrowing the current system and structures and having a new vision for the future.
So we have had this taste, but now Saturn is going back in the Capricorn. And we have a Capricorn Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse on July 4-5. This is the third of three eclipses, and it is in Capricorn, so we are going to be facing some more hard realities. We are really going be forced to take another deep look at our limitations, the way things are and what is and is not working about that.
We must also think about what we want to create. Even though Capricorn is hard, it is heavy, it has this feeling of a burden, it is also a sense of responsibility. What is awakening in us is the sense of having responsibility, of taking responsibility for making the changes we want to see. That is not necessarily a bad thing.
It feels it feels heavy sometimes, and certainly looking at and becoming aware of our limitations is not always light and fun, but it’s important. So as we do this hard work of looking deep within, at where our responsibilities lie to create the foundations for new systems and structures going forward, where we are really at… this is the time. Now is the time to be doing this work, while Saturn is in Capricorn.
This is because we are going to have more Aquarian energy coming. Saturn went into Aquarius in March, and now it is retrograding back into Capricorn. In December, both Saturn and Jupiter will be moving from Capricorn into Aquarius and they’ll be forming their conjunction—coming together.
We had the three outer planets in Capricorn throughout 2020. Some of them—Saturn for a couple of years, Pluto for many years—have been in Capricorn for a while. So we have been doing this for a long time and it all kind of culminates in 2020 with these three planets coming together in Capricorn.
Innovation, Rebellion, and Revolution are Headed Our Way – What Can We Do Now?
Around the winter solstice—December 20, 2020 and a couple of days before that—we’ve got this shift into Aquarius that is going to be a real shift. This little taste that we got recently is going to be to be a bigger deal come December.
I don’t know where will be with the election and everything. I don’t know how that’s all going to go, but I do know that in December there is going to be an energetic shift. Things are going to start to feel really different and it’s going to be about change. It is going to be about our vision for the future. There will be themes of innovation, rebellion, revolutionary ideas, new solutions to old problems… these are the higher possibilities of Aquarius.
The lower possibilities of Aquarius of course include detachment and feeling isolated, so we could be dealing with some of the fallout from COVID. Hopefully we will utilize technology to connect and to take us into the new future that is possible as we begin the process of breaking down. That process is already underway but we will continue the process of breaking down the systems and structures whose time has come.
It’s time to think about what to replace those systems and structures with, so lots of innovative change-oriented energies are coming. But for now, we again have three planets in Capricorn. Until December we need to be doing the hard work. This is the time. This is the time to be looking at the foundations and coming to terms with reality and really understanding where we’ve been and where we need to go, and doing the planning that is going to come from the place of creating new foundations.
