Happy holidays and new year!
Xmas comes early as triple Capricorn Jessica Lanyadoo represents with all things the pragmatic senex.
It is my absolute pleasure to share Jessica’s insights as she is another of my all-time favorite astrologers and modern mystics respected internationally as a counseling and lecturing Astrologer as well as a Psychic Medium – with an ever-growing fanbase across the globe. On my list of which astrologers to listen to and learn from, Jessica, like any self-respecting Goatly Capricorn is at the pinnacle thanks to her 25 years of practical application and socially progressive style.
Lanyadoo has lectured extensively on Astrology and is well respected within the Astrological community for her unique and pragmatic approach.
In this episode, we’ll share excerpts from Jessica’s book, Astrology For Real Relationships, which reflects her progressive style with constructive Capricorn real talk from consent to boundaries to Venus in the first house topping from the bottom–yes you read that right!
I find the best way to get to know the signs (planets, houses, aspects) is to talk to people and listen in for those keywords and classic tells because we relentlessly express the archetypal signatures in our birth chart.

★ The 1 question everyone asks in consultation even if they don’t realize it.
★ Professional practice and pro-business tips
★ How to say ‘I don’t know’ instead of fudging it
★ Saturn returns, planning and mastery

It’s a full Moon in Earth sign Capricorn today. Re-visit intentions if you set them when the moon was new in Capricorn, 6 months ago. Where are you at with them at this stage of your journey? If not, send them out now to be revealed under the bright light of this full Moon- at the 1/2 way point, & peak of its cycle.
Capricorn is a sign of career, ambition, hard work and working toward the accomplishment of long-term goals. Use this energy to set your goals and make a practical plan on how to get there. Reverse engineer to a point that you can get some traction on now.
The Moon governs our emotional life, what makes us feel safe, nurtured and a sense of belonging/family & home.
The Moon is in a challenging aspect (square) to wounded healer Chiron in sensitive Pisces. What do you need to heal in order to have those needs met? This includes needs for your own ambition and career, as these things can give us a great sense of personal accomplishment as well as security. Being in an Earth sign, that includes material security, as well as the credit we have for our reputation. position and skills.
Saturn rules Capricorn, and its currently merged (conjunct) with the Moon. Saturn can limit and isolate as well as focus. Today could feel a little lonely or like hard work unless you embrace the opportunity it provides for focus. Uranus is in a favorable aspect (trine) suggesting we lean into change and try something new. Saturn is retrograde, (as is Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune). Don’t be surprised if you need to go back and do a fresh take on a few things. You may need to re-visit some old habits in order to clear them, now’s the time. While Saturn is usually more like hard work than fun, it does reward any work done, so do the emotional work and it will be worth it. What kind of tangible action can you invest and what tangible results will you accomplish?
Potential is all around you, yet if it’s not congruent with your beliefs you won’t even see it. Opening up your mind and setting intentions helps get your unconscious on board to navigate a new pathway. Doing the emotional work, and opening up your beliefs about what you deserve & can achieve is key to this process. Do the work, as Byron Katie says, and you’ll reap the benefits.
Happy Full Moon!

It’s FULL MOON FEVER with a lovely n large La Luna calling for us to shed our flotsam and jetsom to better focus on what’s real and most essential.
Like sea life drawn up from the depths into view by lunar light, our instinctual, emotional nature is more apparent and conscious.
The full Moon is a culmination of intent and action sewn 6 months prior on the NEW Moon in CAPRICORN. What harvest are you reaping? How are your needs being met? Is it a Full Moon feast or famine?
To refresh your memory look back on the New Moon post (link below) or check your calendar for Dec 29, 2016.
Urge to Purge
Pluto the planet of transformation flanks this Full Moon in Capricorn. Pluto is the ultimate truth sayer. It foretells of razing everything unessential back to the absolute bone. If your emotional scaffolding isn’t built on sure ground, Pluto will get to work. If you no longer need your scaffolding or crutches, yet haven’t shed them to stand strong in your own right, they’ll be torn down with or without your permission. Let them go, you are ready.
The urge to purge or let go in order to transform is a strong theme this month. Have you realized you’ve let something go in your life (or have been resisting), or a foundation stone of your life has been removed? Capricorn is about stepping up, with Pluto in the mix you’ll be stepping up into your power in some way, taking the baton, the mantle. You don’t need to lean on or rely on the past, this is the beginning of your first apparent steps at your next level. Move forward.
The Devil Inside
In traditional Astrology, Pluto is seen as a ‘Malefic’. As evil doom and gloom because this phase of life can be confronting and challenging, the more we resist the more painful, even terrifying it can be. Let’s face it, life in the comfort lane is safe because we know what to expect, even if we know it’s not right for us anymore.
In modern Astrology, planets represent a psychological aspect of our nature as well as timing in terms of cycles of personal growth. The Area this Full Moon falls in your birth chart represents the area of life you’re ready to get down to some serious business in.
Capricorn is the Devil card in Tarot, as Christianity demonized previous values on natures intelligence and abundance. We hold the key to our own chains. This Moon could see us facing and accepting some well repressed taboo truths about ourselves, our true nature and our needs so we may walk free.
If someone were to give you permission to do that, who would it be, and what would they say? Write it down as if they were speaking to you. This could also be a dialogue between your adult self, your inner child and even what you would say to you now from your death bed, at your oldest and hopefully wisest.
Since Full Moons are always in polarity with the Sun in the opposite sign, this month the Sun in Cancer is conjunct Mars. So Pluto Moon and Mars Sun are in a bust-up that needs to find some sort of harmony between authoritarian dictatorship and tight yet warring clan like consciousness.
Pulling the tension into a ‘t-square’ configuration is Jupiter in Libra demanding we spread our wings in relationships. Break out of old patterns of the past. The tension could come from relationships or it could be the urge for more freedom, equality, and justice (think the fight for equal marriage vs outworn concepts of family units, power hierarchies extending out to our own governmental system designed the way a hierarchical business or old school family unit is designed. There’s an imbalance of power which wastes an incredible amount of resources and favors the few).
How are you noticing this in your own life? How could you introduce more freedom and equality into your life without throwing out the baby with the bathwater in terms of your own security, family, home in a way that better balances work/career and vice versa?
Through the Looking Glass
Using my life as an example, the Full Moon/Pluto combo has fallen in my 8th house of death, sex and regeneration, also seen as other peoples resources that we benefit from like inheritance, working with others resources like an investment banker.
Literally one of the foundational people from a most impressionable time of life (15) has passed away. Johnathon was both patriarch and matriarch, a focal point for generations of a creative community who may have been disparate and less cohesive as a community without the pivotal base and personality he provided. He shone a light on an unlit path by modeling a way of living authentically to one’s creative self-expression while embracing others for theirs. I wouldn’t be who I am today without having known, and being greatly influenced by him and the community he had a hand in building.
At the same time, I’ve let go of a partnership in which I needed more space than it had to give. Jupiter in Libra is in my 5th house of creative self-expression and romance. Rather than let the Pluto/Mars bust up bruise, batter and waste resources (Sun-Mars in my 2nd house of personal values, resources, security and $), we’ve brought in the grace bestowed by Jupiter in Libras luck by negotiating a fair deal that’s a better fit, while maintaining absolute stability in terms of security and home. Letting go entirely of the past (Pluto Moon), of expectations (fantasy and delusion) and keeping what works, and what’s real (all we have is the present and potentially the future). The cycle of Jupiter in Libra in my 5th house can now be met without restriction, with some changes that challenge how things ‘ought to be done’, yet suit our individual personal needs.
