ElsaElsa » Am I Too Old To Have Children?

December 19th, 2014 @ 11:12 am by ElsaElsa

moon vintage Christmas ornamentHi Elsa,

I know the moon, 5th house, Cancer etc are often related to children, conception and the like but I as a Capricorn, I’ve noticed that anything to do with my “womanhood” tends to follow Saturn. I got my first period a few days after I turned 14, first significant (mature, committed relationship) at 21, major shake-up and shattering of delusions regarding “bad men” at 28, first real strike me down with lightening love at 35 . . . you get my point. I’m turning 42 next week and don’t at this point have children.

My family and friends predominantly think I’ve missed the boat. Am I naive to think that 42-47 is when I have children? I’ve been late all my life with key “women” things (relative to other women I know) so why should this be any

“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete specific assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor his life repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.” – Victor Frankyl

With the Moon now in Sagittarius, it’s time to allow ourselves permission to become the person that resonates with the deepest core of our being.

Having recycled the psychic and emotional garbage as symbolized by the Moon’s passage through Scorpio, it’s time to get free.

Although details may have their place, it would serve us to put the microscope aside for a couple days and use the telescope, adjusting the lens as widely as possible. To round up our collection of bows and arrows and get our targets ready.

What is your purpose …

sun-moonFriday night the Moon at the beginning of Sagittarius squares Neptune. There’s a tendency to go overboard and not see it coming. Watch your drinks, watch your assumptions. Just because you have a certain desire, don’t assume everyone’s on board unless you ask! Need is inflated and obscured, so make every effort to clarify intentions.(…)

sun and moonI wrote this for a client with a challenging solar return –

“…You know how when a woman is young, she will have all kinds of fits due to hormones?  A person can disrupt an environment for what seems like a great reason…which then dissipates…”

Do you recognize this kind of energy?

Some people have it natally, of course. They find ways to deal. But a person who is generally calm, can be thrown for a loop when this stuff shows up in a solar return, a progressed chart, via transit or whatever the cause might be.

Are your feelings erratic?

reindeerThursday morning the Moon in Scorpio sextiles Scorpio ruler Pluto, trines Chiron, and quincunxes Uranus. The mood is dynamic, yet deceptively subtle. That is to say it is powerful and electric and sets off something within, but that thing within is going to pay off in a secret smile kind of way. It will be quirky and pleasurable but possibly in a way that may be to deep or personal to wish to express. (…)

corpseWhen Venus meets Pluto in any way, shape or form, it’s common that old lovers show up. I tagged people like this as “corpses” some years ago. I was in a mood and wrote all about how people crawl from their trash cans, where you put them, blah, blah, blah.

I also made a video – Step Away From The Corpse. And while that was a good idea at the time, the sky and world are always changing.

new moon in capricorn 2014The new moon in Capricorn takes place Sunday evening in the US.  Even a novice astrology can look at that stellium and see it’s profound.

With the five bodies so tightly conjunct, chances are, the entire stellium will fall in one house in your chart.

This is a tremendous amount of energy to hit one are of your life.  I suggest you dig deep (Pluto) and make it pay (Capricorn).

We set intentions under the new moon. Here are some ideas…

stage drumWednesday morning the Moon starts out at the end of Libra, without any major aspects. In short order, though, it slips into Scorpio and a sextile to Capricorn Mercury. It’s sultry but grounded. After a morning of pleasantries, the Pluto ruled mood dives deep and turns the cogs on the collective mind. Scorpio is a whiz at detective work and Mercury in Capricorn is a whiz at everything it puts its mind to. The mood is smoldering but alert. The mental impulse is spot on because it links gut feeling with the facts you’ve observed without even knowing it. Put this influence to good use! (…)

17 December, in the Roman calendar, marked the beginning of Saturnalia, a two-week festival celebrating the god Saturn. Because, in traditional astrology, Saturn the planet has been labelled a malefic – the “greatest malefic” in fact, one might find it puzzling that Romans celebrated so enthusiastically the god after whom the planet has been named. Or, conversely, why the farthest visible…

fishtomatoVirgo Rising, Pisces Sun. Welcome to the new America

Well, I suppose we had to have the dramatic Pluto/Uranus square step in before I did part two of this. Well, that and I had a big baseball weekend for my son, so here we are looking int the future of the USA. One of the things that really jumped out at me from this chart is that early on in Obama’s first term, he made the proclamation that America will lead from behind. There were a lot of ways to interpret this declaration. His critics suggested he was weak and that intention would lead America to be bullied by any number of forces or nation states throughout the world. His supporters applauded the sentiment, having tired of wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan.

The embarrassment of Abu Ghraib and the ongoing …
