The Moon will be at 8 degrees of Capricorn when the polls open on the East Coast for Canada’s Federal Election and trine Venus in Virgo in the 11th. Venus rules the Ascendant and 8th house. Mars and Jupiter are conjunct, also in Virgo and the 11th house. It is a big Jupiter/Mars day for the group of humans we label as Canadians, who, for this chart, show an essential need step up to the plate for community and the hopes that all its members have for each other and themselves— all males, all females of all cultures, ages, beliefs, faiths, ideologies, philosophies, alternate or dual or multi-nationalities, and gender identifications. Venus, Mars, Jupiter in the 11th house.
The Moon will conjunct Pluto during the day, by the time the polls close will have reached 16 Capricorn 51 and almost square Uranus in Aries at 18 degrees. Is the result a name changer? This is a reference to Moon/Uranus connections that seem to appear regularly for people who change their names. Will the leader of Canada change?
This is a strong Earth Day, grounded and practical. The chart for the opening of the elections also is strongly Cardinal, a modality that gives Canadians a push to take initiative and get out to the polls. Pluto/Moon can symbolize the emotional, security-rooted response for making long-term (Capricorn) metamorphic, transformational changes and choices. The two reside in the 3rd house.
Mean Nodes just changed signs to Virgo/Pisces. True Nodes are still in Aries/Libra about to change signs. In other words in transition no matter which Nodes are used.
The South Node is in the 6th house and reminds Canadians of the spirit and legacy of service and work. And, yes, we could look at the negative influences of the 6th house, some of the ways that certain groups have been betrayed and not supported; however, let’s see this as the way forward, that there can be a release, an opportunity to forgive (and feel forgiven), as well as, to ‘walk the talk’ of apology and atone in a way that serves the collective and truly begins a cycle of healing mind, body and soul.
If you are a Canadian, who has to wait in line a bit at the polls, here is a post with some astrology inspired ways to spend that time.
