Schitt’s Creek – Part 1, 2 & 3

Schitt’s Creek came of age in 2020 after its release in 2015. Since today, January 13th, 2021, is Schitt’s Creek’s 6th birthday, I wanted to offer something back as a thank you birthday present for a show that buoyed many of us through difficult times.

Read all THREE PARTS with the links below:

In Part 1 of this three part series, I take a deep dive into the astrology of 2020. I explore the treacherous terrain of the Saturn – Pluto cycle that cast a long shadow over the year.

In Part 2 I unpack, layer by layer, how the astrology of both Dan and Eugene Levy is reiterated through a daisy chain of astrological connections, linking Levy family patterns to Schitt’s Creek and the unforgettable year that was 2020.

In Part 3 I look at the astrology of Schitt’s Creek and how it suggests it was destined to be the healing balm we didn’t know we needed. The connections from beginning to end are uncanny.

So, pull up a booth at the Cafe Tropical in Schitt’s Creek and think of this as a read through the oversized menu where you get to feast on all the astrology behind Schitt’s Creek being as great as it was.

And if you like it, please share the love around!

Rate your eclipse season, Sagittarius style

Saddle up!

The Sun and Moon are both now in Sagittarius, galloping towards the total Solar Eclipse at 23* Sagittarius on the 14th. This isn’t your first rodeo, so how are you travelling out there?

Rate your eclipse season. Giddy Up!

Rate your eclipse season: Dru Ish Astrology

The line of totality of this eclipse (the red line in the image below) will run across Argentina, Chile and vast amounts of the ocean. Guess who won’t be on a cruise ship this Sag Season to witness it? All of us!

Total Solar Eclipse 23* Sagittarius – path of totality. Dec 14, 2020. Saros Cycle: 4 South

You’ll be able to see a partial eclipse if you’re in South Africa, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Ecuador and Antarctica! Let’s see what kind of events come out of this part of the world in the coming months.

I’m a steady 3, 6, 7 right now; enjoying the ride, tired of the confines of quarantine, and totally at the whim of the Universe. How ‘bout you?

Gemini – Sagittarius eclipses

As if 2020 wasn’t enough already. We’re again in the vulnerable terrain of eclipse season and it’s setting the stage for 2021.

Giddyup!

Video from @horsepars

Between now and the end of 2021 we have a total of 6 eclipses, predominately in the signs of Sagittarius and Gemini: the mutable magic weavers and truth seekers. Where are Gemini and Sag in your chart? This is where you’ll find the energies playing out…and play they will! If you have Sag Rising, Sun or Moon – extra heads up!

Along the Gemini-Sag axis we seek and explore. Gemini processes vast amounts of incoming data down into energetic information that allows for multifaceted expression and understanding. Gemini reflects duality, but the duality is always indicative of the one behind the two. There is no separation. The pitfall can be playing with the illusion by trying to fill the gap, the silence, the spaces where Spirit speaks with books, mind-numbing scrolling and too many tabs open. Gemini’s challenge here is to allow the listening, the receptive energy of communication, to orient itself in meaning.

Sagittarius on the other hand explores far and wide. It seeks to go beyond the limitations of this mortal coil and reunite a connection between what we’re doing here and the Divine meaning and purpose that drives it all. Hasn’t 2020 forced us to ask wtf we’re doing on this precious planet? Our fundamental security in truth has been skewed as we are inundated with fake news, algorithms and extremism at all ends of the political spectrum. As we peel back the layers of deception within socialisation, politics, institutions and anything we’ve been told to believe, the challenge for Sag here will be to reintegrate the truth while acknowledging the pains of being wrong and mislead.

Mark your calendars as we get hit with the truth stick:

Nov 30th 2020: Lunar Eclipse 8* Gemini
Dec 14, 2020: Solar Eclipse 23* Sag
May 26, 2021: Lunar Eclipse 5* Sag
June 10, 2021: Solar Eclipse 19* Gemini
Nov 19, 2021: Lunar Eclipse 27* Taurus
Dec 4, 2021: Solar Eclipse 12* Sag

Bon Voyage, Jupiter.

Jupiter in Sagittarius 2018 – 2019

Jupiter is in the final stage of its gallop through Sagittarius. It has reached the peak. From this standpoint it can envision the road ahead into Capricorn, equipped with the wisdom gained while travelling through the wide terrain of Sagittarius.

Jupiter is classified as a benefic, enhancing whatever it touches. This past year however, it was sometimes difficult to understand the beneficence when Saturn & Pluto over shadowed everything in cranky Capricorn. Thank f*ck Jupiter was in Sag because it took the edge off some of the tension & allowed us to envision the world we want to create when we reach the other side.

Jupiter has been in Sag since Nov 2018. Reflecting back on what this last year has granted you, where did you have growth & learning, travel & expansion that now allows you to view the world through a broader, more encompassing lens, & how did you access optimism through trying times? All of this can be attributed to Jupiter. Now, as the energy calms, how will you gather up those resources and utilise them in a more practical way?

On Dec 2nd, Jupiter will slow down the pace & trot into Capricorn until Dec 2020. It will be an interesting year, to say the least. Capricorn is not an easy, happy go lucky energy, & with both Saturn & Pluto already there, Jupiter won’t be as effective with lifting the mood as it has been in Sag. It’ll be a year to dig deep & utilise those personal resources on the ground in the day to day grind. We’ll all be challenged to mature our relationship to power & to untangle the voices of fear and limitation that keep us bound. 

Write yourself a note from this 29* Sagittarius vantage point that you can rely on through the coming year. If you offer Capricorn a tool it’ll learn how to use it…so give yourself your best.

Eclipse stirrings

What a GIFT that facegram was glitchy yesterday.

These eclipses are stirring so much, from so deep. With Mercury coming to a blazing halt in Leo, preparing itself for a retrograde rendezvous (July 8-31), the air is thick & electric.

It’s a lot.

The gift amongst the chaos is in the messages, but the ‘answers’ we’ve become so accustomed to look for are not in the same shape we’re familiar with. So much has changed.

These eclipse #mercperks are nudging us toward realignment with who we are NOW. Not based in the past, not based in what once gave us security, based in what has been revealed to us about ourselves, about family, identity, ancestry & power.

It’s. A. Lot.

If you can ~ swim in the ocean, have a salt bath, scrub off dead skin, get a hair cut, throw out old clothes. Whatever wants to unshackle, let it go & offer space for the new to arise, again & again….

Why now? Total Solar Eclipse emerges 119 later.

As if Solar Eclipses aren’t magical enough on their own!

This footage of a Solar Eclipse that occurred across North Carolina, USA on May 28, 1900 is the first known eclipse to be filmed. It has just been released to the public with some pretty auspicious timing.

A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are in the same zodiacal sign and also occupy the same terrain in the sky as viewed from Earth. This particular eclipse occurred when both the Sun and Moon were in Gemini which happens to be the exact same New Moon that is occurring as it’s re-released!

While Astrology and Astronomy were once synonymous, many in the science fields today attempt to maintain distance from Astrology, yet this film has been held in The Royal Astronomical Society’s archive for 119 years and they no doubt did not intend to time its release to impress astrologers! So, what brought it out?

Filmed by magician Nevil Maskelyne and reworked by the British Film Institute, it’s an amazing view back in time. Watching an old eclipse is like looking at photos of our great-great-grandparents. Every eclipse is part of a larger cycle, or family, that produces an eclipse every 18 years. These families, like yours, have certain traits and characteristics that re-emerge with each eclipse until the family fades out some 1300 years later. That’s a lot of generations carrying one continuous thread.

In her work on these eclipse families, called Saros Cycles, Bernadette Brady says of this particular eclipse:

May 28, 1900: 10 South at 7* Gemini

This Saros Series concerns itself with breaking out of a very negative situation where no hope can be seen to a more positive space containing many options. A worry that may have been affecting a person will suddenly clear. The solution is shown by the Cosmos and needs to be taken up without too much delay. ~ The Eagle and the Lark, p323

There are various points of connection with this films release that pose many questions, principally “Why now?” If each eclipse family has a particular energy and message why, when the state of the world is pretty dire, are we again witnessing this eclipse? What brought this Gemini New Moon back into our consciousness 119 years later on yet another Gemini New Moon?

It’s possible to google the Great American Eclipse and view it from hundreds of viewpoints, but film was only emerging in the 1890’s, and if Nevil was alive today he’d likely be taking refuge in an embassy in London for his public service hacking: He was a public detractor of Guglielmo Marconi in the early days of radio (wireless). In 1903 he hacked into Marconi’s demonstration of wireless telegraphy, and broadcast his own message, hoping to make Marconi’s claims of “secure and private communication” appear foolish. ~ Wikipedia

Not only is this amazing to watch but the synchronicity of its release date coupled with the theme of the eclipse family and Nevil’s trickster ways are timely in this Gemini Season.

Sun conjunct Uranus

The Sun & Uranus are snuggled up today, creating both excitement & instability. While some folks love the electricity & dynamic energy of ⚡️Uranus⚡️, for others it can be quite destabilising.

Since Uranus entered Taurus last year (May-Sept) we started to get an incling of that which was up for overhaul. On a personal level relationships, ideologies, employment, finances, family dynamics all started to reveal the deeper rifts of core dissatisfaction.

Now that this transit is in full swing we’re staring into the mirror of chaos; we don’t have control & the more we feed that lie, the more complicated we make the simplicity of life.

What we DO have when we allow chaos into our consciousness is creative freedom. Without desperately trying to control the winds that blow through our lives, we can remember that we are the magic ~ that it’s not something to be attained & possessed ~ & it’s not something we can manufacture, only work with.

As Uranus is often associated with ⚡️lightning⚡️ & Taurus takes on an Earthy -of the body – resourceful shape, we can re-learn what it is to live WITH nature, an integral part of it, co-collaborating. When we become conduits for the energy that’s BUSTING to come through, we step back into our 💚heart centre💚 & release the stress of trying to be, criticising & controlling.

Depending on how invested we are we might resist the changes, but Uranus ultimately wants to free us from that which inhibits. In earthy Taurus it’s calling us to WAKE UP while still in the body, to dare to meet life with fresh, open eyes & to fully dance the dance that we are!

Where does Taurus land in your chart?!
