CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #169 -- Detecting Your Worst Period(s) in a Year
December 21, 2018

Prepare for January 2019 which will be even more hectic and busy than November and December 2018 ;)

Another round of 5 planetary ingresses, a Solar Eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse and Uranus stationing to go direct all await us this time.

This month of January can surely be described as a huge awakener, bringing a profound awakening on a mundane level, generally speaking.

On another topic entirely and as a short reminder, as discussed last year, we will no longer write the annual forecasts for the 12 zodiac signs.

The monthly forecasts will still be published both in our Love Letters and on our web site though.

Instead of analyzing and writing the annual forecasts for the 12 zodiac signs, we now focus on writing astrology books to make sure our knowledge and research results will become available to a wider audience.

Also, in the coming months we will invest some extra time in the https conversion of our web site -- which is a very time- consuming process.

All external links and scripts have to be https proof too and have to be exchanged in case they are not.

It's not always easy to find other reliable web sites or resources with the same information and this too takes time, irrespective of the many many links that we have to update.

Also, it looks like Google Plus will close down sooner than expected.

This is something we will follow up as well.

Enjoy a loving year's end

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around January 5-6, January 13, January 19-20 and/or January 25-26.

During this month of January there are no planetary configurations affecting specific birthdays.

However, stationing Uranus, which we will delineate below, builds a configuration that may affect some birthdays the whole month long.

The birthdays will be listed below.

Generally speaking, January 2, 3, 4 and 18 are "less lucky" days.

Try not to initiate any major projects on this dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty day (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

Mars enters its own sign Aries around December 31 - January 1, suggesting the deployment of the armed forces (military and/or police).

Interestingly, 0° Aries represents "the new beginning" (in whatever way) and this "coincidentally" coincides with the start of the New Year.

Generally speaking, this means that the month of January 2019 will bring a new start for many people in many ways (career switches, changes of residence, marriages, births...); often involving "a first."

There is work at hand and lots of activities and/or initiatives are taken.

Particularly beware of head injuries and/or burns.

Around January 2, the Sun and Saturn conjoin at 11° Capricorn.

This sobering aspect often reflects some physical issues, down-time, a lonely feeling, restrictions, not being able to unfold properly and carrying kind of a burden.

Mercury enters Capricorn around January 4-5, suggesting governmental or official news or documents.

There are formalities to fulfill.

The January 5-6 Solar Eclipse at 15° Capricorn, a so-called "critical degree", suggests the need and urge to be "loved", to be in power, to be recognized.

It's kind of a cry for help and to be meaningful.

These influences manifest in different ways: some of you will become meaningful because of a planned marriage, others will promote or change careers, but those who are unable to manifest the urge to be meaningful or recognized, will feel down and should do the utmost to keep an uplifting attitude and overcome an empty and hopeless feeling.

According to the brilliant and meticulous astrologer and researcher Bernadette Brady, this Solar Eclipse is part of the 2 South Saros Cycle which is concerned with unusual groups and the individual's involvement with these groups.

The individual will feel that, through involvement with such a group, he or she will gain a great deal.

What's even more is that around this January 5-6 Solar Eclipse, Uranus stations and turns direct again at 28° Aries.

Stationing Uranus often coincides with heavy storms, lots of irritation, restlessness and sleepless nights.

Also, at 28° Aries, stationing Uranus suggests rejection, health issues resulting in hospitalization and/or a cold atmosphere.

Uranus is an intellectual planet and may indicate breakthroughs in science and research.

Because of the current midpoint picture, stationing Uranus will also reveal scandals and fraud that may cause a lot of upheaval and create a huge awakening.

This Solar Eclipse period with the ongoing station of Uranus may result in people to be shaken and experiencing a very cold shower.

It shall be clear that there is a huge difference between what is real and what is not and things are clearly not what they seem.

The current sobering influences may affect you most if you are born around January 18, March 3, April 18, June 3, July 21, September 5, October 21 or December 5.

The current astrological configurations favor musical creativity and enjoying music concerts should be on your bucket list.

Following astrometeorology, the atmosphere may get cold now, resulting in snow, ice, lots of humidity here and there.

Around January 7, Venus enters Sagittarius, indicating the love to be out into the open, being attracted to all things "foreign", relationships with people from other countries or cultures but also the need to enjoy freedom and lots of free space.

Venus is in an adventurous position and cannot stand boundaries or a heavy mood.

Love is idealistic and enthusiastic and not interested in realistic and down-to-earth experiences that demand responsibility.

Following astrometeorology, this can be a clouded and/or overcast day.

Around January 8, Mercury at 4° Capricorn squares Mars at 4° Aries.

Mars is the stronger of the two in this waxing square because it's powerful in its own sign.

This aspect is (too) sharp and decisive, and fast in thinking and communicating.

There is a combative and competitive mood that easily gets irritated and impatient.

Beware of sarcasm and uncontrollable arguments.

Also, this waxing square is a very accident-prone one and traffic accidents may be a given, especially because of reckless steering or neglecting speed limits.

Try to avoid cuts or physical injuries.

Because of the current astrological configuration, there is the possibility of theft, fraud, financial scandals, deception due to others or someone else.

If you are born around February 9, March 26, May 11, June 27, August 13, September 28, November 12 or December 27, you may feel these influences more profoundly.

The Sun and Pluto conjoin at 20° Capricorn around January 11.

This forceful and intense combo points to a single-minded focus.

This is a highly transformative aspect also suggesting a "letting go."

Around January 13, Mercury and Saturn conjoin at 12° Capricorn, indicating a dark mood and atmosphere.

There are clouds in the sky and some sad news to report.

Jupiter at 14° Sagittarius squares Neptune at 14° Pisces around the same day of January 13.

This clash between both planets in their own sign on a degree of chaos, confusion, uncertainty and things that get beyond one's head indicates passivity and some lack of responsibility.

This aspect too suggests fraud, negligence, carelessness and a distorted perception.

This is a very deceptive aspect as well and almost always involves (huge) deceptions.

Whenever Jupiter and Neptune clash, there can be lots of precipitation here and there.

Jupiter and Neptune will be in this waning square almost the whole year 2019 long!

On a mundane level, this waning square suggests issues or scandals related to the Vatican, huge financial losses/expenses, fraud and scandals overall, among others, that will mark 2019 completely.

It increases creativity though and indicates loving compassion on a more spiritual or metaphysical level too.

Around January 17, the Sun at 26° Capricorn opposes the mean Lunar North Node at 26° Cancer.

It may be difficult to maintain a position and for some of you, this aspect points to resignation, a defeat, an identity crisis, a personal setback.

Vitality is usually low around this opposition and you better keep a low profile.

Mercury and Pluto conjoin at 21° Capricorn while the Sun at 28° Capricorn squares stationing Uranus at 28° Aries.

There is lots of irritation and mental strain in the air.

There can be a sudden leave-taking or some breaking news about a separation.

Don't be too upset.

Around January 20, the Sun enters unpredictable and erratic Aquarius suggesting some stress and tension because of a crisis or emergency situation.

In matters of love and romance, you experience some inhibitions, renunciation, disputes, separation, frustration, feeling loveless or unloved, unsupported and the cooling off of emotions and affections.

If you are born around January 4, February 2, March 4, April 3, May 4, June 4, July 5-6, August 6, September 6, October 6-7, November 5-6 or December 5-6, you will feel these frustrations most.

For some of you, there are unexpected financial expenses or losses likely as well.

This is the more so because around January 21, monetary Venus at 14° Sagittarius squares dissolving Neptune at 14° Pisces.

It's not only love that disappoints you, but also some expenses.

The waning Venus-Neptune square is a very tragic aspect in that it suggests an insatiable and frustratingly unfulfilled longing that looks for compensation into an artificial way by sacrificing oneself, building fantasies, taking alcohol or drugs.

The time frame around the entrance of the Sun in Aquarius, might be a very turbulent and busy one, the more so because of the Lunar Eclipse at 0° Leo around January 21 also.

This degree area points to some difficulties to let go the past, parental issues (for whatever reason), chaotic living circumstances, increased emotional turmoil and upsetting outbursts, separation or divorce, "short circuit behavior", panic attacks, heart issues and/or conception.

As Lunar Eclipses are Full Moons during which things get more out into the open and awareness increases, emotional upsets are likely to happen.

Additionally, still around the January 21 Lunar Eclipse, Mars at 13° Aries also squares Saturn at 13° Capricorn.

This waxing square indicates aggressive and brutal force.

This can be a very harsh aspect, pointing to very hard and tireless work that often involves overtime and pushing beyond the limits.

Around January 21-22, Mercury at 29° Capricorn opposes the mean North Node of the Moon while Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 16° Sagittarius.

All Mercury-Lunar Node connections indicate restless and highly busy times for sure.

It's hectic with lots of noise and buzz going on.

Venus and Jupiter together at a loving degree suggest pleasant encounters, nice gifts, gatherings and/or purchases for some of you.

16° Sagittarius is a very public degree suggesting announcements regarding love and romance (pregnancy, childbirth, marriage, a proposal, an important love encounter etc.).

Mercury at 28° Capricorn squares Uranus at 28° Aries around January 23.

This waning square brings a lot of unexpected events or news, unrest and nervous tension.

This aspect may suggest sleepless nights and traffic or air accidents.

You can be contrary and change opinions easily.

Following astrometeorology, Mercury-Uranus squares are often linked to heavy wind and even storm here and there.

Around January 26, Mercury enters disruptive and unpredictable Aquarius, emphasizing strong convictions.

There is a crisis or emergency situation going on and some peculiar and surprising situation gets your attention.

Expect increased tension and some of you may even face a mental breakdown.

Breaking news about a scandal or fraud may mark the news headlines.

There is a lot of buzz going on and people are very talkative.

The Sun and Mercury meet at 9° Aquarius around January 29-30, implying news about a merge, bond, connection, relationship or (business) partnership.

What's New on Our Web Site?

Detecting Your Worst Period(s) in a Year

It's universal law that everything is cyclic, goes in ups and downs, twists and turns.

Once born, nobody can escape the inevitable "good times and bad times."

However, there are different cycles at work and what we want to discuss in this article only refers to the annual cycle, crossing the four seasons, not the larger cycles.

The annual cycles are not only based upon the lunations or Moon phases, but also involve the daily position of the Sun.

The transiting Sun travels through the zodiac signs in a counterclockwise direction and will change the background color of your life any time it changes zodiac signs.

There is lots of evidence showing that when the Sun resides in a zodiac sign that is incompatible or clashes with the zodiac signs both your natal Sun and Ascendant are in, you have detected a time frame during which things may go awry in your life.

Your health may then need more attention, your relationship may cause issues, there can be more issues at the working floor, or whatever...

When the transiting Sun enters a zodiac sign that "afflicts" both your rising AND Sun sign (the whole signs), you (and your life) may feel at a low.

All zodiac signs that square, oppose or are inconjunct are told to "afflict" each other.

This means that when the transiting Sun enters a zodiac sign that is square your Sun sign, for example, and opposes your rising sign at the same time, you know that, as long as the transiting Sun resides in that particular zodiac sign, your life may go a bit at odds with you.

Let's give you an example: let's say your rising sign is Gemini and your natal Sun is in Aries.

By detecting the zodiac signs that are square, opposite and inconjunct them, you have found your annual period of mishaps and low energy.

In this example, Scorpio is inconjunct both Aries and Gemini, resulting in a low period when the transiting Sun enters Scorpio, every year around October 23 till November 23.

It's true that certain natal Ascendant-Sun combos have more than one challenging period a year.

This is especially true if your Sun and Ascendant square each other or are in the same zodiac sign, for example.

You can find out if your partner, lover or anyone else faces the same challenges during the same period or not.

Couples can detect when their relationship faces its lower peaks in a year.

Start with the Sun sign of each partner and check the zodiac sign(s) that square, oppose or are inconjunct BOTH Sun signs.

When the transiting Sun enters that zodiac sign or these particular zodiac signs, you have detected your combined challenging period that may affect the relationship.
