Heliocentric sidereal planetary cycle Astrology 3rd to 8th of January 2023

There’s quite a story unfolding - a spiritual, evolutionary path that can reveal and manifest itself in millions of ways…

We’re still in this special time between December Solstice and Earth’s Perihelion and working with the energies provided by the stellium and their conjunctions, which will have a “culmination” with the Jupiter – Chiron conjunction end of the month (I will make a separate post about that).

Jupiter does have a special “say” in this all beside the stellium – he’s now in his “rising” part of “most southern” area of orbit towards his perihelion and that in combination with Earth at her perihelion on 4th of January (east of the “+07 hours” time-zone on the 5th) does for sure give us a lot of influence from the Sun (illumination) within Jupiter’s and Earth’s themes… furthermore, during her perihelion Earth is conjoining Pallas still very south of the ecliptic… some hours before Earth reaches her perihelion, there’s also an exact conjunction between Venus and Saturn.

Mercury will be in exact conjunction with Mars at the vernal point in earlier Gemini over Orion on the 5th and Mercury will be approaching Earth for conjunction on the 7th…

Beside that, Juno (one to one relationships) will be exactly conjunct Eris (revelations, interrupting for “eye opening to reality”) on 7th of January 2023, which is also the “Full-Moon day”….

heliocentric sidereal astrology chart about Earth perihelion 2023

The Earth – Sun axis moves from Solstice at around 4°42’ Gemini – Sagittarius to Perihelion of Earth at 18°42’49” currently sandwiching Christmas and New Year…

Earth’s Perihelion happens close to the star Mekbuda of Gemini and Pallas stands south in the constellation Monoceros (the Unicorn). In longitude Earth and Pallas take the star Sirius into sandwich, yet, as Pallas is so south, she’s much closer to Sirius than Earth – further south we would (actually I do see it) see the star Canopus of Carina (one of the brightest stars – almost as bright in the night sky as Sirius but much further away, so in fact is much more luminous than Sirius).

Quite some “star prominence” around here in sidereal Gemini, which we can observe every night.

The Sun in Sagittarius, over Corona Australis and under Lyra (it’s alphastar Vega is opposing Canopus of Carina and Sirius of Canis Major in ecliptical longitude) – the Sun and Earth will be on this axis on the 6th and 7th of January.

On this axis we’re talking vibration and communication – grounding the “higher” communication, the “higher realms of ideas and ideals” – once we know the “laws”, making decisions accordingly is much easier than when we’re ignorant about them. We need knowledge and wisdom combined – the more masculine and the more feminine as that makes one “whole” in this sense. Fighting within self and in the “outside world” for or against whatever kind of “man-made rules” will lead to repetitions… (also a theme of Chiron, who is currently expanded by Jupiter).

Venus and Saturn stand in very early sid. Aquarius under the star Sadr of Cygnus (the chest / heart of the swan) and its surrounding nebulae, and the little constellation Equuleus (the foal) are of influence. In the southern sky we see Beta Toucana as the most “prominent one”, the discovery-longitude of Neptune is around here too…

Messier 29 - a star cluster also called the cooling tower in the constellation Cygnus
Messier 29 (M29) located in the constellation Cygnus is also called "the cooling tower" - picture from in the sky org

Sadr of Cygnus not only is the chest of the Swan but also the middle point of the so called “northern cross”, beside that Sadr and his nebulae is also named the “Sadr region” and just right next to Sadr (in the Sadr region) the famous IC 1318 Butterfly nebula, Messier 29 an open cluster which is often also called the “cooling tower” and further south, at the edge of the constellation the “Veil nebula”….
