banking crisis, daily astrology, new beginnings, Pluto at anaretic degree in Capricorn, Spring Equinox 2023, sun enters aries
“We all want to break our orbits, float like a satellite gone wild in space, run the risk of disintegration. We all want to take our lives in our own hands and hurl them out among the stars.” – David Bottoms
We start off our Monday with lots of moving parts, including the rollout of a brand-new astrological year as the Sun enters enterprising Aries – also signaling the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere (5:24 pm), which is perennially perceived as favorable for new beginnings, particularly of a personal nature as Aries is associated with one’s own self-identity.
We also have a New Moon in energizing Aries, tomorrow afternoon (1:23 pm) – meaning that today we are immersed in Luna’s Waning Crescent phase in Pisces, often a time of reflection and quiet planning, as well as a final period for wrapping things up. Luna is only generating 2% illumination now, so her output is pretty much at a lull, suggesting that we maybe are too.
At the same time, intense Pluto is still holed up at the 29th or anaretic degree of corporate Capricorn as the global banking crisis continues to unfold and grab headlines; Pluto is thought to rule credit, debt, and lending. When a planet gets to the last degree of a sign, there often seems to be more of a last-ditch effort to do certain things, push certain things through, as we may perceive that we are running out of time.
(Too, yesterday, as the empowering Sun in unifying, idealistic Pisces formed a sextile to transformational Pluto – an influence that often can usher in sudden rebirths or makeover responses on our part – UBS agreed to buy its rival Credit Suisse in an attempt to alleviate some of the banking stress. It will be interesting to see how this aspect may appear to play out, this week.)
Also, on Wednesday, the last day Pluto will be in Capricorn, for a while, before entering robot-zone Aquarius on Thursday the 23rd (8:13 am), Federal Reserve Chief Jerome Powell will announce whether or not he will be raising interest rates, once again, or maybe taking a pause, which can, of course, have important impact on those of us who may be considering taking out such things as mortgage or car loans, with money often costing more, the higher the rates go up. Saturn-ruled Capricorn also has a reputation for being a bit Scrooge-like, to begin with, due to its perceived focus on budget-planning or preferring to live leaner and meaner.
“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people that they don’t like.” – Will Rogers
Today’s question: If money were no object, what might you consider doing today that you otherwise would not likely do?
