As a new start, I thought I’d try something a little different, and paint a potential picture for Tasmania’s year ahead.
Here I am using traditional techniques for reading the ingress chart of Aries at the commencement of the new astrological new year which occurs at the time the Sun ingresses (enters into) the sign of Aries at 00°: the Autumn Equinox for us in the Southern Hemisphere.
As I live in old Van Diemen’s Land, I thought it would be interesting and timely to review the ingress chart for Tasmania.
With Aquarius on the Ascendant being a Fixed Sign, the tradition is to accept this chart as an indication for the whole of the next 12 months, until the Aries ingress of 2023.
The Ascendant is the cusp of the 1st House, which here represents you and I, the Tasmanians, and the island itself.
Traditionally Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, with Uranus being the modern ruler. Here, we will stick with tradition for consistency, and find that Saturn is much exalted in this ingress chart being in the 1st House and in His own sign.
The 1st House has Mars and Venus conjunct, infusing a passion to assert things, such as the role of women in leading this island state. The Aquarius flavour will definitely bring radical change to how we prosper as an island State this year. Saturn will help us look to the future for structure and integrity in who we see ourselves as.
The 2nd House represents such matters as our financial security and with Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Tasmania may experience a surge in over optimistic promises that may not bring us the monetary stability we need.
Indeed, with Neptune in the 3rd House, we may discover that what we were told was really fiction! The Sun represents the Premier and as such, S/He will be focussed heavily on asserting themselves as the solution for our ills.
And it might be a tough time for those in power, as Uranus in the 4th House of the People will oppose the 10th House of Government, forcing a compromise between authority and individualism, the old and new, the way things are done and the way they could be done.
With the Moon in the 10th House, women will be the focal power and potentially the ‘seat of power’ in Tasmania this coming year.
The astrology suggests this will be a shock to Tasmanian patriarchal society!
Anyway, with Pluto in the 12th House, Tasmania can expect a transformation in power, and perhaps with women being ‘hidden’ for so long from places of power, this astrological new year may see the feminine rise to positions of control.
Regardless as to how this ‘story’ unfolds, interesting times are ahead – wherever you live in the world.
I wish you all a happy and fortuitous astrological new year!
