- Aspects, Configurations, and More -
The next two weeks will provide a Lunar nozzle to express the compressed planetary energies of all the other planets which are still within a 121+ degree span. This chart has a lot of aspects in the various “specializing” series, with some major choices and changes coming through 7th harmonic aspects involving Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter!
Remember this Full Moon fulfills the Aquarius New Moon energy. That means the experience of higher wisdom and understanding we’ve been blessed to give to others can now be focused through forms of quickening and letting go of the old while expressing our unique sense of creativity. Keep opening to vaster connections within self and with others. And of course, the Sag Solar Eclipse continues to remove all which might block our happiness.
This month we have three evolutionary configurations in play. We have Uranus cutting the Full Moon opposition into a sextile and trine, throwing a favorable void into early Scorpio; we have the 7th harmonic configuration I mentioned in the first paragraph, and we still have the Grand Irrationality in play due to the close forming biseptile between Uranus and Pluto. The latter two configurations, both being driven by septile-series aspects, activate yet another period of “irrational choice and change” these next 2 weeks!
For those who don’t know about this configuration, there have been two iterations of it. The first Grand Irrationality (1993-2017) was anchored by Neptune septile Pluto, and the second Grand Irrationality (2018-2021) has been anchored by Uranus biseptile Pluto, with Neptune occasionally configuring with Uranus in a septile, joining the two evolutionary patterns.
Both of these represent non-rational, “fork in the road of destiny” configurations blending the transpersonal revolutionizing of Uranus with the transpersonal “fog of mass consciousness” of Neptune with the purifying “death and rebirth” energy of Pluto. These will next be triggered when planets conjunct Neptune and septile both Uranus and Pluto.
The second configuration is anchored by Moon triseptile Mercury, Mercury biseptile Mars and conjunct Jupiter, and Mars biseptile Jupiter. This will have a very powerful widespread influence in our charts, since it involves planets in Virgo, Aquarius, and Taurus which rule Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Pisces! This generates 7 “hot zones” of non-rational choices, changes, and events, and if you have a planet or point in any of these, expect your life to have some important things come up. The zones are approximately 13-18 Aquarius, 4-9 Aries, 25-30 Taurus, 16-21 Cancer, 8-13 Virgo, 30 Libra-5 Scorpio, and 22-27 Sagittarius.
Uranus cutting the Sun/Moon opposition into a sextile and trine is incredibly favorable, and points the way to major regeneration once we still our minds and allow the higher Light to impress itself on our consciousness. When it doubt, still the mind and learn to listen to the inner voice, especially if it’s showing you the future, showing you what you need to get rid of, or showing you your individual genius not grounded in some local tradition.
Besides the various aspects I gave you related to the evolutionary configurations, forming (or partile separating) inner planet aspects include Moon quincunx Saturn, opposed Neptune, and sesquisquare Pluto; Mercury is vigintile Venus, quindecile Sun, decile Neptune, and vigintile Pluto; Venus is conjunct the Sun, vigintile Jupiter, quindecile Saturn, bielftile Uranus, vigintile Neptune, and decile Pluto; and the Sun is binovile Mars, quindecile Jupiter, semisextile Saturn, conjunct Neptune, and semisquare Pluto.
Outer planet forming and partile separating aspects include Mars tredecile Saturn and trine Pluto; Jupiter is binovile Uranus; and Saturn is square Uranus and novile Neptune.
We have relatively few spiritual and a LOT of specializing aspects in this Full Moon chart. In the series related to destiny and “fate,” we find 4 biseptiles and 1 triseptile. In the 9th harmonic series related to spiritual realizations, we have 1 novile and 2 binoviles. In the 11th harmonic series related to spiritual realizations, we have 1 bielftile. However, in the specializing aspect series, we have 4 vigintiles, 3 quindeciles, 2 deciles, and 1 tredecile.
For those new to the craft, quintiles and biquintiles are 5th harmonic aspects, septiles and triseptiles are 7th harmonic aspects, noviles are 9th harmonic aspects, deciles (semi-quintiles) and tredeciles are 10th harmonic aspects, the elftile series are 11th harmonic aspects, the quindecile is a 15th harmonic aspect, and the vigintile is a 20th harmonic aspect. Each of these has a unique function in the phase relationship of the two planets in aspect.
The 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th harmonic aspects are specializing and bring forth partially or fully developed quintessential elements of the planets involved. The 7th harmonic aspects help us make choices to fulfill our destiny, and the novile series aspects (9th harmonic) represent entry or exit points of periods of gestation which can bring forth possible spiritual developments. The 11th harmonic aspects involve situations where there is a need to transcend and master some form of duality by making a leap of faith.
The various aspects in all these different harmonic series indicate points where the theme of the Whole Cycle becomes clear, whether through major developments or minor refinements in the process. Each aspect shows a phase relationship, specific to the special and unique circumstances of that particular Whole Cycle. It's how we can know when to work, when to play, when to create, when to imagine, when to have faith, and when to mobilize!
If you want to know more about these aspects, when you’re done here please go to The Specializing Aspects Pt. 1 – Quintile, Tredecile, Decile, and Biquintile, The Specializing Aspects Pt. 2 – The Quindecile and Vigintile, and The Spiritual Aspect Series – The Novile, Septile, and Elftile Harmonic Aspects where you’ll find more about the meaning of these aspects and the glyphs associated with them. Also, remember that all of these set up harmonic resonance void points all over our charts.
The Eclipse Factor
Besides the recent Lunar Eclipse at 9 Gemini/Sagittarius and the Solar Eclipse at 24 Sagittarius, we’re still “under the beams” of the June 2020 Solar Eclipse at 1 Cancer. Eclipses are “cosmic recyclers” removing what we no longer need in the houses where they occurred. The Solstice Solar Eclipse marked a change of allegiance for everyone, with hard adjustments and sacrifices for all. We will be reuniting with fellow Fire Spirits the next few years as we move into a new personal and social order.
Taken with previous Solar Eclipses from Christmas 2019 and before, whatever has ended in 2020 has unblocked our ability to accept a “mantle of power” so that our Light can take shape as a new form of Truth, freedom, compassion, and obedience to Dharma. So besides experiencing the 2020 Solstice Solar Eclipse at 1 Cancer, and the Christmas 2019 Solar Eclipse at 5 Capricorn, we’re also still experiencing past Solar Eclipse “cosmic recycling” wherever we have 16 Capricorn, 21 Cancer and 19 Leo, due to Eclipses on these degrees. The endings of 2018 and 2019 helped us get organized, explore what success really means to us, and find techniques to let go of prior fixed social roles.
All these Solar Eclipses, along with others, have allowed us to “shed skins” wherever we have 9, 19, and 30 Pisces, 28 Aquarius, 29 Leo, 10 Virgo, and 21 Virgo, as well as the degrees of the recent Eclipses. As you can see, that involves a large part of our charts! You can find out which Solar Eclipses are still showing effects by referring to the first article in the mid-December Solar Eclipse series, which lists which Eclipses are done and which are still in play.
A good meditation would be to take a look back at how something related to that axis in your chart has left and been replaced with something new. All our losses associated with these signs have left voids which will attract life contents more appropriate to who we are now. Alternately, you may be feeling a void because someone else really isn’t there. Now it’s time to turn to what will nourish you.
This Full Moon has an extremely imbalanced element distribution. Of the traditional 10 planets, there is 1 planet in Fire signs, 4 in Water, 4 in Earth, and 1 in Air. This makes Earth (Practicality and Grounding) and Air (Relatedness and Communications) preponderant and balanced, with a major deficiency in Water (Feelings and Experiencing Life on Deep Levels) and Fire (Inspiration and Light), which are also balanced with each other.
Air and Earth are “cool” elements, while Fire and Water are “hot” elements. With this distribution, things are extraordinarily cool. Air and Earth can be likened to a mountaintop, every arid but grounded with a wide view. At least the Fire of the Moon will help us focus what heat there is through the transfiguration promised by the Lunar Sabian symbol.
The current sequence at present of Deciding, Feeling, and Thinking
We’ve been through several different sequences over the past few months. There are six patterns, and each has their strengths and weaknesses. This Lunation begins a new pattern, offering as a process of moving through events over the next 4 weeks that the most effective “firing sequence” for approaching life and experience involves leading with our thinking, then experiencing our feelings, and finally using our sense of things to make decisions.
This pattern leads with visions and ideas, seeking to find a way to use feeling to move those ideas and visions into action. This begins with an idea, then references feelings to check out the internal emotional response to what comes up related to those ideas and visions. The problem is that this pattern can get stuck in thinking, then feeling, then thinking about the feeling, then feeling more about the thought.
The way to make this work is to lead with a vision or understanding, and then feel our way to know a simple fact which can be the basis of a decision and action. So use new views and interpretation to feel your way into knowing what to do. After a decision or action, then we’ll have to find newer, more up to date information, facts, and understanding so we can get a new vision.
So open to new views, new thinking, and then feel your way to decisions and actions. After you do the single act that can move everything forward one step, then we need to go find ideas, information, and new visions that can help us find a new way to experience our feelings. After we have that clear feeling experience of what we’ve learned of the idea, we’ll have hunches about decisions and the need for action. After we come to the fundamental fact that allows us to decide and act on that decision, we’ll naturally find new information and views which lead us to new experiences. So lead with thinking, then move through the feelings and experience of that vision into a new action.
Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend
Because Saturn has entered its other home sign of Aquarius, it remains the final dispositor of all planets transiting Capricorn and Aquarius from now through 2023. That makes it a dominant force through April 2022. Because Jupiter has also entered Aquarius, Saturn again is a major presence on the planetary stage as a final dispositor directing all the planets except Neptune from both behind the scenes AND in the scenes!
Remember that while Saturn can feel heavy, it is also our ability to take command of our lives and destiny by using Saturn’s virtues in the right way and time. Our ability to steer our “ship of personality” into its rightful “current of destiny” is in front of us, based in how we have prepared for our “role of destiny” heading at us like an express train! In 2019 we rehearsed and perfected roles and skills we’ll need in 2020 and beyond as part of the Saturn-Uranus “dance of individualization” in our lives. We’ve begun to crystallize present and future rewards, as well as new group work and roles opening new chapters in our “hero’s journey” into our new quality of Being awakened by Uranus.
I explain how Saturn and Uranus awaken us to our Higher Powers to take conscious command of our destiny in my book Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend. Saturn helps us give form and structure to our quest for Self-realization, and due to its 3 month occupancy of the first two degrees of Aquarius, we got a preliminary instruction on how we can make a greater contribution to our civilization and come together with others in a great effort “ensouled by a great vision.” This was activated at the last Full Moon, along with the final direct experience of a “new quality of Being” promised by Uranus to come alive as expressions of our unfolding Higher Consciousness.
This book was written for both astrologers and non-astrologers. Even those with little or no understanding of astrology will benefit from understanding why you had to make certain choices at crucial times that shaped your life in profound ways.
Each time you read any section of this book you will find new insights about your power to throw off all the attitudes and memories which hold you back from finding and living the life and purpose. If you’ve haven’t already gotten your copy, you can go to the Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend page on Amazon and this should be all you need to order your copy. It’s also available on Amazon and as an ebook on Kindle, so if that’s more to your liking, go for it! If you would, whether you’ve gotten the ebook or the paperback, please write a review on the Amazon site, since the more reviews, the more of a boost they give it.
Summing it Up
This Full Moon brings us a promise of shedding even more considerations as we move into greater truths, and the birth of a greater understanding about our Spiritual Sisters and Brothers. This time will help us launch a great vision, and gives us signs and signals about the “shortcuts to evolution” we’ll have to embrace after May. Even though Saturn is still square Uranus, it’s finally separating, and the Aquarius transits are no longer in conflict with Uranus.
Find appropriate ways to express your uniqueness wherever you have 9 Virgo, and be willing to put yourself out there! As Mercury is on the same degree where Saturn will go retrograde, and Venus is on the same degree where Jupiter will go retrograde, the next two weeks definitely gives us signs and signals of the future! This is a time to go deeper into our connection with the World Soul, cutting through obstacles and extraneous considerations as we move into a time of “rebeginnings,” where our “mature wisdom” can be the foundation of a greater enjoyment of life.
Last May we “graduated into a new realm of Being” which will blow open doors of possibility by May 2021 when Jupiter makes its first of three transits through the “Transfiguration Zone” at the end of Aquarius. We’ve definitely launched into our Aquarian adventure which Saturn will help us structure in ways that are meaningful to our higher purpose this year and next.
Just remember we will be moving through a time of conflict between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus which will last through 2022. We are now rapidly leaving behind the old 200 year Earth Era and rapidly moving into the 200 year Air Era which launched at the December Solstice. This Aquarian Air Era is springing to life during this time when the inner planets have been and are conjuncting Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius.
Where these occur in our chart empowers our long wave metamorphosis as we transition through the beginning of the end of the Age of Pisces, entering into 34 years of increasing manifestations of the Age of Aquarius. This transitional period requires that we ask ourselves certain questions related to what we care for and care about, since we’re being called to be fearless as we let go of all that is unnecessary and irrelevant to find a transcendent security as we walk through the world but are not “of” the world.
We have been navigating the final season of humanity’s “liberating ordeal.” All of us have had opportunities to find new inner strengths and powers the past three years, and have the ability to find assistance from Devas and Angels who bring “divine help when human efforts seem to fail.” We now are in a time of learning to let go of preconceptions and prejudices. Again, learn the power of forgiveness to create space for Grace to enter your Life.
When new adventures beckon, embrace them with warmth, since you might find Spiritual Brothers and Sisters from past lives along the way! Get rid of obsolete judgments and preconceptions, and your path to Fellowship will open even wider than it has before now.
Having finished many old ways and left behind all which doesn’t serve our bridge to the future, we now fly into a new adventure in consciousness, able to live a more purposeful life within a greater group structure. We now can embrace a new way of fulfilling Dharma, or our purpose for being alive. We are living a new identity, a new love, a new spiritual awareness, and a new spiritual expression in grounded ways, so keep your mind and heart open and keep coordinating your body, feelings, and mind to demonstrate a stable and harmonized Soul energy.
A Meditation on Light and Shadow
Because life seems to be a never-ending experience of out-breathing elements of the past and in-breathing elements of the new, it is useful to remember that when we are moving through major changes, and something new is introduced into our lives, it means that something else must leave, or has already left, to provide space for the new to be embraced. And lesser wisdom must give way to greater wisdom, and old forms give way to newer realities.
While sometimes having to say goodbye to older, lesser ways of life can be a drag, it is important to remember that even though life can occasionally be painful, we do not have to suffer. And as we learn to break the link between pain and suffering, we heal our part of humanity and the world.
For your contemplation, a final meditation I offer each month at the end of our Full Moon journey of exploration.
We are Light. All things are composed of Light in various frequencies that express as limitless forms. Some light frequencies are of greater density than others.
All shadows result from light hitting a dense object. Psychological shadows too. Therefore, it’s good to become as translucent and translucid as possible to dispel lurking shadows.
If you must look at and/or deal with shadows, whether your own or another’s, then refocus your Light on the object being illuminated, since that form is the source of the shadow.
Find the correct 4 angles of illuminating whatever you want to focus on, and all shadows will be dispelled. Then you’re seeing things with an illuminated mind, and can act accordingly.
