Planetary activations 15 to 16 June 2017- Sun in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces turns retrograde.
Saturn retrograde opposite Sun June 15- 6.18 am EDT-
When a planet is retrograde and opposite the Sun it is closest to Earth. That may or may not be a good thing in the case of Saturn. Both Saturn and the astrological Earth are at 24 degrees Sagittarius and the Sun is at 24 degrees Gemini at this opposition. (The location of Earth is always in the zodiac sign opposite the Sun). The Sun is connected to the ego, our identity, our intentions, and Gemini, our thoughts, perceptions, and issues of duality. Saturn is connected to society, rules, limitations, and restrictions, but also responsibility for our actions. In Sagittarius he is testing our belief systems and in extreme cases ideology that has become dogma. The Earth is how we are grounded on the planet. In Sagittarius she is in her Soul Centered home. The gift that Sagittarius gives to us is the opportunity to see life from our Higher Consciousness.
It seems many people are continuing to take action from their egos agendas. I am sure Great Mystery and Creator are getting fed up with the human race.
Oppositions are like a “tug of war” with each energy trying to be dominant over the other. The spiritual solution is to find balance so the energy can integrate and create co-operation. We need ego to exist on the physical plane but we need our Higher Mind to guide us to choose what is fair and just for all. That is the request this opposition is asking of us. Saturn in Sagittarius is activating the 6th Ray (Ancient Wisdom Teachings through Alice Bailey). That is the Ray of Idealism and Devotion. (Sagittarius is also a 4th Ray sign, Harmony through Conflict, and a 5th Ray sign, Knowledge and Healing, but the 6th Ray feels most dominant at this time). Idealism can become dogmatic ideology. “My way is the only way”. There is too much of that going on in the world. Let us all work with this Saturn/Sun opposition to create a foundation where balance and co-operation are the outcome. The Animal Totem guides for Saturn in Sagittarius (and currently the Earth) are Elk, stamina and strength, and Owl, the wisdom to see through deception. For the Sun in Gemini it is Deer, sensitivity and compassionate love. In the Southern Hemisphere the Totems are reversed.
As the Sun moves forward in Gemini and Saturn Rx moves backward in Sagittarius this opposition only last for a day. But on June 18 Mercury in Gemini (our thoughts and perceptions) will oppose Saturn Rx in Sagittarius (personal responsibility and being guided by our higher Self) and repeat the energy. If we look at the Sun/Saturn opposition (and the Mercury/Saturn opposition) as an event chart then the planets in opposition (tug of war) are Square (motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things) Chiron at 28 degrees Pisces (healing the world wound). So the gift of healing into wholeness is there if humans will only open their compassionate hearts to one another. This morning a minute before the Sun/Saturn opposition the Moon (Soul Guidance) entered Pisces. Moon in Pisces is healing, forgiveness, completion, release, and renewal. Pisces is the ONENESS OF ALL.
Neptune at 14 degrees Pisces turns retrograde 15 June- 7.09 am EDT to 22 Nov- 9.21 am EST
The outer planets remain retrograde for 4 to 5 months so we feel the energy most acutely at the turning (either retrograde or direct). Neptune is the planet of illusion/deception or illumination/enlightenment. As he retrogrades he asks us to look inward and identify what is true, what is not true, what can never be true, and WHAT SHOULD NEVER BE TRUE. I have found in recent years when Neptune goes retrograde lies and deceptions are exposed. That is evident in US politics and UK politics at this timing. Neptune is called “The Dissolver”. He is a generational planet so deception of all kinds will probably be exposed for all to know.
Just remember Neptune, on a personal level, can lead us on a Mystical Path if we are willing to let go of our personal illusions and live our spiritual truth. Pay attention to what comes up for you personally in the next week or two and you will know what you want to release. Remember Pisces is healing, forgiveness, completion, and release. Neptune in Pisces connects you to your Soul Wisdom if you will allow yourself to be guided by your Divine Essence. Our Animal Totem guides are Cougar, spiritual power, and Wolf, the teacher who guides us through change to renewal. For the Southern Hemisphere your guide is Brown Bear, introspection, healing, and The healer. But they are available to us all in spirit.
Neptune Rx in Pisces will oppose The Sun in Virgo on Sept 04/05 (depending on your time zone). He will be closest to Earth at that time (but close for Neptune is still very far away). There may be some revelations and truths that will be revealed around that time. Stay tuned.
