Reading Time : 5 minutes

The battle can be grueling. The human soul, tired of fighting for ideals of which it does not know the foundations. The cosmic mind looks to the past, to what happened in the last year.
What have we learned? What have we based our ideals on? What is the practical direction of our battle? The heavens ask us to reconsider it, according to what can and cannot be done.

Astrological Insights on the Leonard Comet — The Green Lion of Alchemy

Reading Time : 5 minutes

In times of need, the gods help the human beings through cosmic processes. One of them is the appearance of comets, that from a spiritual scientific standpoint lead a purification process of the astral sphere surrounding the Earth.

In this article we are going to talk about the Leonard Comet, the brightest of 2021. What’s the meaning of the appearance of this comet? And why is it getting more visible now, right in December? Let’s try to figure it out by looking at its color, direction and zodiac sign, also taking into account the current astrological phenomena.

The Meaning of Comets

According to Anthroposophy, comets are celestial bodies guided by the highest spiritual beings of the First Hierarchy. They have the task of cleansing the atmosphere from the astral impurities released by human beings in the cosmos. A process that usually takes place during Solar Eclipses, as we’ve seen in the recent Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius article.

The Astrology of 2022

Reading Time : 9 minutes

It is in the darkest moments
hat the light shines the brightest.

As we did for 2021, in this article we are going to provide an overall view of 2022 Astrology. This year is going to be more rich and complex, in terms of astrological events. For this reason, I want to stress out again the importance of having in front of us the big picture of the year ahead, and taking a moment to contemplate it.

I’ve already talked about information fragmentation, as one of astrology main problems. Simply put, we tend to focus on single astrological events, tackling them one after the other. And by doing so, we loose contact with the essence of the year, which we should star looking at as a real spiritual being.

This article wants to be a contribution to get that connection back. It’s way much difficult to do it as we are going through the Wheel of the Year. In fact when we are inside the astral turbulence, we are too identified with what’s happening to us to be able to do so.

Let’s start by looking at this picture, that summarizes in a single glyph the astrological events of 2022.

We are leaving behind 2021—a year characterized by the Air Element. Mainly, 2022 is going to focus on both the Air and the Earth Elements. This for several reasons that we are going to take into account in this article, breaking down the glyph into its components.

As you can see next year glyph is more complex, because compared to last year, Mars and Venus were added. The circle in black at the center is the wheel of the Zodiac, as you can see from the twelve Zodiac Signs of the same color all around it. Then, we find:

  • In green, the orbit of Venus—which is going to get retrograde in Capricorn soon, on December 19th. This event introduces the Earth Element, since Venus’ stay in Capricorn is going to last until early March 2022.
  • In yellow, the orbit of Mercury doing its three retrogrades stops during the year. Mercury is going to stop in all three air signs, as it did in 2021: Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. However, after going retrograde it’s going enter back the three preceding Earth signs: Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo. As you can see, the Air-Earth pattern starts to take shape.
  • In purple, we find the positions of the two lunar nodes, the spots where eclipses take place. In late December, the North Node, the so called head of the Dragon, is going to enter Taurus (earth sign). And the South Node, the tail of the Dragon, is going to move to Scorpio (water sign). This means that all 2022 Eclipses are going to take place in those signs.
  • In blue, Jupiter. As we know, Jupiter changes sign once a year, giving it a specific color. On December 29th, Jupiter is going to enter Pisces, as it did in May 2021. This is going to bring beneficial forces of harmonization, thanks to the aspects it’s going to make with all three trans-Saturnian planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
  • In red, we have the orbit of Mars retrograde. Mars is going to stay in Gemini (air sign) for an exceptionally long period of time: from late August 2022 to late march 2023. This is going to boost the air element for this year.
  • Lastly, we have also in red the well known Saturn Uranus Square. We’ve been discussing about it though out all 2021. And even though it’s not going to perfect again in 2022, it’s going to almost doing it, performing a partile aspect in fall 2022.

Let’s see now all these points into more detail. We are going to deepen them in specific articles as the year unfolds. So we’re just going to get here a preview of what’s coming next.

Eclipses 2021 Season 2 — Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius – Facing the Truth

Reading Time : 6 minutes

In the previous article, we talked about the last Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. We saw how the feminine archetypes, through the forces of the Moon and Venus, are trying to hinder the conflict represented by the Saturn-Uranus Square. On the contrary, the masculine archetypes don’t seem to want to stop. Especially because the perfection of the Square is expected for late December—right on Christmas’ Eve.

How is this second and last eclipse of the season going to affect the overall situation? What’s the specific impulse brought by it? In this article we are going to tackle the phenomenon by looking at the planets involved. In particular we are going to focus on Jupiter, lord of the Eclipse, and its relationship with Mars.

Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius 2021

This is going to be a Total Solar Eclipse, taking place at 12° 22′ Sagittarius on December 4. As always we are going to analyze it by looking at all its different aspects.

Whereas on December 4th there will be a Total Solar Eclipse at 12° 22′ Sagittarius. The first is a Full Moon event, the second a New Moon, so the phenomena belong to two different lunation. This means that in terms of forces involved, they’re going to be separate events.
