Evolutionary Astrologer and Channel Tom Jacobs gives an in-depth look at the energy of the Winter Solstice, the time when the Sun enters the sign of Capricorn. This year it’s December 21st.
This video is excerpted from a 26-minute video on the Solstice and the New Moon of Capricorn that activates the grand cross between Mars in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, and Pluto in Capricorn. The New Moon is conjunct Pluto and Mercury, making this a powerhouse New Moon!
The full video is one of 4 sent tomorrow to subscribers (74 minutes of material in total covering Venus retrograde, the Full Moon, Mercury entering Aquarius in January, and Uranus recently going direct and in opposition now to Mars in Libra)).

A comment by a listener who heard this past Wednesday’s show:
I listened to the replay and must let you know how interesting and knowledgeable you are. One sentence fragment, “running down the cacophonous halls of the psyche,” is just one of the reasons I love listening to you. Intuitive, psychic, creative and deeply involved with astrology and philosophy, you are a renaissance man.
Thank you and Blessings,
If that doesn’t warm my little Sagittarian heart, nothing could!
The show was on Mars in Libra, Venus’s retrograde in Capricorn, and how to understand and approach the upcoming Winter Solstice (21Dec13). I gave out the number for caller questions several times and no one called in (making me feel left hanging), so Beverly’s note was meant to encourage me to keep it up even if no one calls in. › Continue reading
Each year at this time people give my Soul’s Journey Soundbite MP3s and videos as gifts. They’re special because they cover a person’s life purpose and explain the intentions the soul has for his or her life.
I love doing them because through them I get to honor the unique journey that each person is traveling. At the end of recording one my heart is open and I feel great to have the opportunity to help someone understand him- or herself better and, of course, improve what might not work in their worlds.
From people hearing theirs:
- Pluto as the marker of the empowerment journey it sets out for its human selves including you.
- The South Node of the Moon describes the lens through which you see the world and it tells of your early life experiences, including family you were born to and/or raised by.
- The South Node ruler by sign indicates special skills, talents, and interests you have and roles you gravitate toward as well as are appointed to.
- The North Node of the Moon reveals something you need to expand into in this life but might not want to learn, which no one in your family can teach you.
Mars entered the sign of creating fairness, harmony, balance, and justice on December 7, 2013. This planet is about beginning things, action, making decisions and choices, and experiencing and navigating expressing desire.
When Mars travels through the sign of Libra we are treated to reflections from others about the impacts of our choices, actions, and desires.
Planets working through the lens of Libra are not necessarily good at creating balance, etc. They are trying to figure out how to do so. Because here’s the thing: In order to learn through the lens of Libra we need others, and it’s a learn-as-you-go type of thing. How others receive and experience us means everything as we learn through Libra.
For Mars’s passage through this sign we’re all in for the treat of learning to express desire in new ways (and perhaps express new desires) and learning about how they affect those around us. All learning through Libra can invite some tension as we sometimes are not sure how others will receive us. We might want to edit ourselves or not be authentic given how we suspect another might react to us. But when we learn to negotiate and co-operate, learning through Libra is deeply fulfilling and enriching.
And yet we need to make sure we’re working with definitions of the terms negotiation and co-operation that are actually helpful. Some of us can slip into deferring and believe that it’s co-operation – part of making someone else happy by giving him or her what he or she desires.
Negotiation can be experienced by any of us at times to be a situation in which we assert what we want, someone else poo-poos or criticizes it, and we decide we should have kept our mouths shut. That’s not negotiation! That’s being in need of learning how to work together in order to co-create.
Mars will also retrograde while transiting Libra, a biannual event that brings cause to re-evaluate what we want and why we want it. The retro period is March 1 – July 25, 2014. You’re going to find your desire function a bit unfocused. You may want things impulsively just to try to move Mars energy. You might also feel that what you want isn’t available, especially from others as they try to figure out what they want and why. For everyone, that process necessarily involves encountering what we don’t want and learning to respond to that. Given that the sign is Libra, chances are you and yours will edge up against each other in sometimes stressful ways as you provide each other stimulus re what you have, do, and used to want from and with each other.
So what to do?
- Be honest even when it’s difficult.
- Stay present even when it’s tough.
- When you’re discussing things with others, be/stay in your body. Breathe and take time to respond – choose to edge away from being reactive, which is without thought and emotional in a not-grounded way.
- Stay in your heart.
- Decide to learn a new level of negotiation.
- Listen to what others say and what you’re saying – again, stay present.
More detailed analyses of Mars’s transit through Libra as well as an in-depth treatment of the ins and outs of its retrograde period will be available to subscribers of my new in-depth monthly astrology service, which goes live on the Winter Solstice – December 21, 2013. Each month I’ll cover ingresses, retrogrades, major aspect patterns, lunations, and other astrological stuff all with a mind to explain in plain terms what is happening and how you can make it work for you.

The trine between Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio have many feeling old emotions stirred up that need to be processed and released.
In this episode I’ll talk about emotions and how some being stirred are related to our sexual histories. I’ll also discuss some processes of our energetic fields when it comes to sexuality because these old emotions, even if not related to sex, affect our lower chakras and so come out in (or hinder) our sex lives.

Beginning this month I’m offering a subscriber service that will deliver to you exclusive astrology and spirituality content each month. Subscribers will receive each month audio and video (and occasionally written articles) on the astrology happenings of the upcoming month – all available to no one else.
Over the years I’ve blogged a lot, written a number of columns and articles online and in print, and offered many MP3s and videos providing insights into current astrological events and spiritual perspectives. This is a new direction for me and I’m really looking forward to it! Saturn transiting in conjunction to my Sun now is asking me to get productive and to concretize what I’m up to and be consistent, and this new service is a great way to do it.
The content will include explanations and perspectives on the Sun’s trip through the sign it’s entering, planetary ingresses (when they enter new signs), new and full moons, major aspect patterns, and other useful, practical info that will teach you to understand what’s happening around and within you and show you how to work with it in conscious ways. Life is infinitely better when you know and understand what’s going on!
A channeled meditation from Djehuty and/or Metatron related to a theme of the upcoming month is included.
New content will be delivered as the Sun enters a new sign each month, usually between the 20th and the 22nd.
Part of subscribing is a variety of perks and offers on just about all of my services and products. Another is a monthly conference call or webinar to ask me questions of a diverse nature – how to approach a particular transit or progression, other astrology questions, questions for Djehuty or Metatron about anything including meditation, healing, and human evolution.
Subscribers will also ensure that The Soul’s Journey Radio Show is supported!
I’m excited to offer this new service to you. When you join you’ll access my unique, life-affirming, empowering approach to astrology and the human spiritual journey and will be able to use it to make your experience on Earth more joyful, graceful, and fulfilling.

This archetype is misunderstood and yet we crave knowing Lilith within us. Life on Earth for the last 6,000 years has been an experiment in diminishing the feminine in all its forms. Lilith is a feminine archetype that’s been demonized in order to inspire fear in people – to keep them from knowing and accepting this part of the self.
If you know and accept Lilith then you love your body, the Earth, women, and the cycles of nature including weather in all its forms. If you do this you know and trust your instinct and allow it to guide you, making you uninterested in and not afraid of fear-inducing rhetoric and dogma.
We’re in a global reawakening of the relevance and import of the natural feminine in all its forms. Participating in this renaissance requires unplugging from the fear-based status quo. In the Lilith Intensive I’ll teach you how to do this for yourself and to work with others ready to do it for themselves.
This work has been central to my practice longer than any other archetype and now I’m making a focused effort to spread the word. In 2008 I wrote the True Black Moon Lilith Natal Report and in 2012 published the book Lilith: Healing the Wild. The response to each has been more than I ever expected as people are finally getting a life-affirming, positive, useful, and practical approach this maligned archetype. I’m told repeatedly that my work is the only truly positive take on Lilith, giving people real and useful – with no fear-mongering – insights into how to work with this part of the self.
Contact me at (213) 925-6019 with any questions about the Lilith Intensive and to sign up. By taking it you’ll have the chance to transform your relationship with instinct and learn to move forward in your life with a new level of strength from rewriting your history as Lilith in this life.
For all who order and receive Soundbite MP3s and videos during December, I’m offering 20% off 60- or 30- minute consultations before the end of January. When you receive the Soundbite I’ll send a link to get the discount.
The Soundbite orders are coming in as holiday gifts. Each year people give to their loved ones these insightful 20-minute readings covering the person’s karmic journey and what he or she is here to do.
Soundbites explain your soul’s intentions for your life and I also give you tips on how to make it happen. So much is covered in 20 minutes that clients who get them listen to theirs over and over again, getting new insights on each hearing.
The way I analyze charts clearly and succinctly uncovers what you’re here to do, what might be getting in the way and why, and how to move through it.
It’s been an interesting experience doing these for 2 years now, with almost 300 people hearing the overview of their lives from the perspective of their soul’s journey. I love making astrology real for people in practical, useful ways, and the Soundbite MP3s and videos give me a chance to do that.
Exact tomorrow, 11/15, at 1:21 pm Pacific at 9 Capricorn 46 but the energy is in play and building now.
Pluto has been in square to Uranus in Aries and Venus now joins it. Check out that blog post linked and then add in some Venusian ideas. This can make the square come alive within relationships, what you feel is important, how you add and develop skills, and money/resources/possessions.
Ask yourself where in existing dynamics you feel trapped or in need of some new levels of fresh air. In the short term it may feel like a need to set something in stone or, at least, take some aspect of relationship, money, skills, etc., in the direction of more concreteness.
Pluto in this sign also asks us repeatedly to get clear on what’s running our lives. We may have the sense this week that we are empowered or disempowered (Pluto key words) through our relationship with money and possessions as well as through our relationships with others.
The square to Uranus brings pressure to set yourself free from existing stuff that doesn’t feel good. “Feel good” means those that don’t provide you with elbow room, a sense of having space to do what you need to do, and liven things up. It’s in Aries, a sign of new beginnings, and so there may be tension in your world and the world around you as many feel a growing sense of restlessness and a need to break free from what’s confining.
You should be finding yourself at minimum ill-at-ease with some existing dynamic that seems to require you to give up or surrender something you know is good or right for you. It’s about how strong you feel, actually. And if you don’t feel strong in the moment regarding a particular detail or thing, it’s about getting in touch with the inner rebel, revolutionary, and iconoclast. If you don’t do so, tension increases until it manifests in outward behavior we can classify as bitterness, resentment, and harsh criticism and perhaps unconscious-/reactive-type energy that seems to want to burn bridges and lay waste to the landscape.
If you need some alone time, take it. If you need to say something to someone but find it challenging, get grounded and do it. If you need to rework a relationship boundary or introduce a new one, do it. If you need to do something about your finances in order to feel more free or alive, do it.
The worst way to experience anything triggered by the Pluto-Uranus squares is to do nothing. It’s in fact a choice that leads to pent-up energy that will make things harder later for all involved. Take the opportunity to get more real, more authentic, more truthful, more direct, more open, and above all more willing to make changes. It’s the only way to deal with the tension that comes up that alleviates the tendency toward explosiveness and anger later.
