Yesterday my Solar Arc ascendant has officially shifted to Capricorn, which will last for the next 30 years, so I guess this is a big deal.
Amongst a variety of prognostic techniques in astrology, Solar Arc direction is the one I don’t use it so often but as a kind of a ‘scientist’ I like observing it.
Apparently, in Solar Arc direction (I would actually consider that in relation to any astrological prognostic technique), when there is a shift in astrological sign like the one mentioned, we better look at what we have in that sign natally to get some clues on how the next 30 years might play out.
I have only Jupiter and the part of fortune in Capricorn, and the sign is also on the cusp of my third house. Natal Jupiter is in a tight trine to my Mercury-Sun conjunction and this seems to have a similar message to the third house cusp thing.
My take is that perhaps this shift from Sagittarius to Capricorn will enable me to move and travel a little less and to focus instead on work and intellectual production.
I also hope that this process will reflect a change from emphasising my Mars (out of bounds) conjoined Uranus in the first house in Sagittarius (square Sun-Mercury) to, the already mentioned, Jupiter.
I feel that I could do not only with learning more about practicing patience, but also and specially dealing better with boredom, something that tend to sabotage many opportunities in my life (for work, relationships, etc).
Perhaps living on the fast lane isn’t for me anymore and I would really like to learn more about taking things slow, learn more about working steadily and patiently towards a goal, and feeling ok with being temporarily bored without the need to act out and create disruption.
(BTW, Solar Arc Pluto is one degree away from my natal Mars… so perhaps learning these lessons are in the cards for me anyway…)
Have you observed a shift of signs by Solar Arc direction in your chart? How did that play out for you? Did it help integrating your natal chart more?
Hi Fernanda this is an interesting and thoughtful reflection on a major shift whose effects – if any – it will be interesting to observe to see what degree of accuracy it offers. I have to say that I have experimented with solar arcs, and it’s a technique which has never spoken to me at all – whereas secondary progressions have been breathtaking in their accuracy both as a guide to me in my own life, and in terms of the work I have done with clients over the years.
Thank you Anne; yes, I feel that progressions somehow speak more to me than Solar arc direction, and I’m trying to pin down what’s the major difference between them in terms of which level of our being are they talking about… not sure. But I definitely feel the Capricorn energy (my progressed ASC+Mars are also moving to Capricorn sometime next year, so maybe I’m also picking up on that?!) 🙂
Yes, more than likely!
