beliefnet astrology ask an astrologerDear EL:

In Part One of this series, we covered the condition of your Jupiter, and its role in both “luck” and “happiness.” In Part Two, we got into the larger subject of depression, and in Part Three we covered how and why the transits that you have gone through and will experience might be aggravating things. Now, finally, we come to the real magic of what astrology can do: how can you make this better?

We’ve already established that what’s bringing things to a head for you is the Pluto transit affecting your natal T-square, and because Pluto is so damnably slow, you have a couple of years to go year before you are out of the woods. But there are a couple of things to keep in mind when you’re looking ahead at the next two or three years and seeing nothing but one long crappy Pluto transit:

1) It’s never just one transit on its own that makes everything either miserable or wonderful. One needs to zoom in on the smaller and faster transits to see how they contribute to the entire picture. The other transits can aggravate the larger ones, or (more importantly) they can lift the burden.

-There are plenty of places online where you can tell where the Moon is going to be at any given time. Whenever the Moon is between 15 and 25 degrees of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), you can count on your mood being worse. However, whenever the Moon is at about 15-25 Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, it will be working well with your Ascendant — and thus may boost your mood to get out and do something. Pay attention to when Mars is transiting those degrees as well: Mars can aggravate a difficult transit, but give you a boost when it’s in a good place for you.

Also, whenever the Moon is at about 10-20 degrees Pisces, it will working with your Venus. That makes it a good time to be kind to yourself.

-In February through July 2019, and again in December 2019-February 2020, Saturn will be on your side, trine your natal Saturn. The Saturn Trine is a fantastic opportunity to restructure your life in a way that works for you. In fact, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in early 2020 (that some are already sweating bullets over) could be an incredibly positive and transformative time for you.

-Jupiter will be in Scorpio until late 2018. Since this is your Twelfth House, you will be in a position to get great benefit out of professional help/counseling. Which leads us to…

2) Astrology is never JUST about astrology. Yes, you read that right. Just as you exist within a continuum of other people and their lives, you (and your birth chart) aren’t isolated phenomena. Understanding your circumstances, how you are wired as a person, and when the good times and bad times will all occur are all incredibly useful. But if you want real, observable relief from what is causing your pain, you need to take real, observable action. Contacting an astrologer is the first step to curing your ails, but it isn’t the last.

Having said that, EL? Thank you for contacting me about this. That’s what I’m here for. I have tremendous faith in your ability to make it through this — now go and prove me right, okay?
