Capricorn month tends to give me some organizational ability, that slips out of my fingers the rest of the year. So I'll be working on the bones of the site, for a better reader experience. I know time is of the essence -- to act on these rare (for me) energies. The rhythm will surely shift, and with a watery 2013 forecast, especially after Summer Solstice. It's a good time to make sure the vessel is seaworthy.
Along those lines, check out the writings of Austin Coppock, and a preview of his 2013 Astrological Almanac, with its theme, Ship of Fools. Coppock is the current President of the Association of Young Astrologers and his writing style is vividly descriptive, fresh.
Here's a sample: "The surfeit of water makes 2013 thick with....feelings. It will be a difficult year to avoid the emotional level of things, as the tide will wash back all that you throw away. It will prove difficult for the earthy types that prefer to stick to the facts, fiery types who'd rather act first and delve into motivations later. The rational air type will fare better here, as air's ability to dehydrate, to evaporate, to analyze will be utterly crucial in making sense of the various floods. Watery types may feel at home, their emotional intelligence and ability to subtly navigate invisible currents of great value."
I'm a watery type, and got pulled under at the New Moon -- a familiar experience, but one that's also different every time. This fits with Coppock's forecast for drowning, "being thrown into the deep end of the pool without warning." A question then, is how can we fortify ourselves now, or make the most of the relative calm before the storm. For me, it's looking at the structure of things, while I have that kind of sight.
