Aspects, Evolutionary Configurations, and More.
The next two weeks offers us a lot of awareness, clarity, and polarization, but not much friction. However, with four planets triggering “The Grand Irrationality,” don’t be surprised if things get really weird these next two weeks!
Remember this Full Moon fulfills the Cancer New Moon energy. That means the new energies we’re integrating are reorienting us toward the new Aquarian vision already cut loose this past year. This helps us be naturally creative in our self expression within the group work we’ve been doing since last year as part of our “graduation into a new realm of Being.” The Sun in Leo can help us play with others when "the school is closed by an epidemic."
This month features four evolutionary configurations helping us navigate the oppositions while taking care of business. They are, in no particular order:
- Mercury opposed Pluto and trine Neptune creates a dynamic triangulation throwing the void into late Virgo. This will help us get clear about what’s true and what’s not, so keep you eye on the potential separate from the limiting conditions. This involves social and/or emotional education, knowing what values we venerate, being willing to tame and train the ego, and be led out into the world of transcendent activity where we can serve a greater spiritual mystery ritual.
- Venus is the nozzle of a Kite created by its double quadranoviles with Saturn and Neptune. This is of major importance, since something Venusian will have to be accepted in order to fulfill the spiritual potential of this configuration. However, because Venus is conjunct TransPluto, there are hidden powers within us to accept when they are made manifest, and invisible helpers will assist when our efforts seem to fail.
Of note is that Mercury and Venus also make 9th harmonic aspects with Venus, Saturn, and Neptune, showing we have FIVE points of a 9-Pointed Star of Spiritual Realization active at this time. Affected zones are around 1-4 Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, 10-14 Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, 20-24 Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, and the 30th degree of the Fire signs.
- Venus makes a tredecile to Uranus and biquintile to Pluto while Uranus is tredecile Pluto. This is also a Kite configuration of high interactive specialization indicating extraordinary serendipity will bless those with planets or points in the affected areas. These include 1-5 Virgo/Pisces, 7-11 Libra/Aries, 13-17 Scorpio/Taurus, 19-23 Sagittarius/Gemini, and 25-29 Capricorn/Cancer. If you have something in one of these areas, your life will be blessed with unusual good fortune in some way.
- The fourth evolutionary configuration (as usual) involves the Grand Irrationality in play due to the Moon making a triseptile to Mars, biseptile to Uranus, and septile to Neptune, with Mars biseptile Uranus and triseptile Neptune, with Uranus septile Neptune. This septile-series driven configuration shows us the global and local conditions of “irrational choice and change” these next 2 weeks, and continues our world’s passage through this “fork in the road of destiny.” This lights up FOUR points in the 7 pointed “Star of Destiny,” so expect so major events which may take some very weird twists and turns.
Even though I gave you the link to the main article in part one of this series, in case you don’t know about the Grand Irrationality, 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 are being triggered as planets transit late Leo and will be triggered when they transit mid-Libra when they make septile series aspects to Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
Besides the various aspects I gave you related to the evolutionary configurations, forming (or partile separating) inner planet aspects include Moon quincunx Venus and conjunct Saturn; Mercury is decile Mars, biquintile Jupiter, and quintile Uranus; Venus makes only the aspects listed in the configurations, and the Sun is quindecile Mars, quincunx Jupiter, and opposed Saturn.
Outer planet forming and partile separating aspects include Mars opposition Jupiter (out of sign), Pentelftile Saturn, and quincunx Pluto; Jupiter is quindecile Neptune and decile Pluto, and though Saturn is semisquare Neptune, because of Venus translating the light it also functions as a novile.The rest are as described above.
We have a broad representation of spiritual and a LOT of specializing aspects in this Full Moon chart. In the series related to destiny and “fate,” we find 2 septiles, 2 biseptiles, and 2 triseptiles. In the 9th harmonic series related to spiritual realizations, we have 2 noviles and 3 quadranoviles. In the 11th harmonic series related to spiritual realizations, we have 1 pentelftile, and in the specializing aspect series, we have 2 quindeciles, 2 deciles, 2 tredeciles, and 3 biquintiles.
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 current Total Lunar Eclipse and the recent one at 20 Gemini on June 10, we’re still “under the beams” of the June 2020 Solar Eclipse at 1 Cancer and the December 2020 Solar Eclipse at 24 Sagittarius. As most of you know, I take the view that all Eclipses are “cosmic recyclers” removing what we no longer need in the houses where they occurred. The June 2020 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 ended in 2020 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. Besides the June 2020 Solstice Solar Eclipse at 1 Cancer, and the Christmas 2019 Solar Eclipse at 5 Capricorn before that, 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 at 1 Cancer and 24 Sagittarius. 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 Astrology in June 2021 - On The Threshold of an Annular Solar Eclipse at 20 Gemini 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 those points in your chart ended after those Eclipses, and examine how new events, new people, and new life experiences came in those chart areas. All our losses of the past few years associated with these signs have left voids which have attracted, are attracting, or 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 continues a slightly imbalanced balance in element distribution. At this time, of the traditional 10 planets, there are 2 planets in Fire signs, 3 in Water, 3 in Earth, and 2 in Air. This makes Water (Feelings and Experiencing Life on Deep Levels) and Earth (Practicality and Grounding) preponderant, with slightly less Air (Relatedness and Communications) and Fire (Inspiration and Light).
Air and Earth are “cool” elements, while Fire and Water are “hot” elements. With this distribution, things are balanced. Air and Earth can be likened to a mountaintop, very arid but grounded with a wide view. Fire and Water are hot springs or a lake inversion. Still, with Mars and the Sun in Leo as our Fire planets, what Fire we have is pretty strong.
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 brings a new pattern. As a process of moving through events, the most effective “firing sequence” for approaching life and experience over the next 4 weeks involves leading with our thinking, then deciding, and then feeling.
This pattern leads with a vision, or an understanding, or a communication, and then makes decisions and actions based in what it perceives, knows, or understands. While there is a tendency to move back into more thinking, communicating, and envisioning and then making more decisions, it is more important to move from deciding or acting into feeling what we’re experiencing as a result of those actions and decisions, and bring those feelings to the surface of your consciousness and get clear about what you’re feeling and why.
By naming the feeling or experience, it will naturally lead us back to new information, new vision, new ideals, and new understanding upon which you can do your next set of decisions and actions. Then again name what you’re feeling. That way nothing will get bottled up through underuse, and you can move through experiences with power and clarity.
Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend
Because Saturn is now solidly in its 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. It is very strong in this Lunation as ruler of the Moon, and when Jupiter re-enters Aquarius in a few weeks, Saturn will again be a major presence on the planetary stage occasionally sharing power with the others both behind the scenes AND in the scenes!
Remember that while Saturn can feel heavy, it represents that part of us which can 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 in 2020 to mobilize what we need at this time.
Throughout 2021 Saturn and Uranus introduce a frictional “dance of individualization” in our lives, generating new heart power as well as a more acute focus on our magnetism. 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 the “new quality of Being rendering the old patterns obsolete” awakened by Uranus in 2019 and 2020.
I explain how Saturn and Uranus work together to awaken and structure our ability to utilize 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 in 2020, 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 by the Grand Mutation conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at the December 2020 Solstice, and now we can live our “new quality of Being” coming 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 helps us “gain through subtraction,” learning to play “when the school is closed by an epidemic,” and helps us get more focused in our spiritual mobilization. We’re at a threshold state, and can find a new inspiration which is somehow related to prior inspirations.
We received a new intense focus of spiritual energies activated at the Taurus and Gemini Full Moons, and it’s a new life and a new day. This Wisdom is helping us integrate our heart power, and through knowing where we’re at on the evolutionary ladder, we’ve begun to leave a lot behind. We’ve now crafted our expression to reveal something of our inner life and purpose, and have reached a point of yearning to live life as an adventure. Some will experience “the compelling power of sustained desire,” seeing the power of dreams to be made real if they are precise and true. Just remember that life is a grand play, and each of us is here to do our part on the stage of Life.
Enjoy the harmony and unique gifts and blessings promised by the biquintiles and tredeciles, as serendipity is in the air, bringing unique circumstances which are perfect for our gifts, as well as gifts which are perfect for our circumstances. As there’s really no friction, and only a few adjustments which much be made, enjoy the freedom to play or create as you are inspired to do so.
Last May we “graduated into a new realm of Being” which brought us to the “open doors of possibility” promised by Jupiter’s first transit of the “Transfiguration Zone” at the end of Aquarius in late April and early May. We’re about to get a second dose of our sense of emerging from a cocoon, securing the next phase of our Aquarian adventure into our higher purpose which Saturn will help us structure this year and next.
Even though they are now moving out of the exact square, with Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus we’ll continue to navigate the conflict between these two signs which will last through 2022. As we continue to develop the potentials indicated by Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, we’ll see more and more movement away from the ideas and expressions dominated the old 200 year Earth Era and into the emergent 200 year Air Era which launched at the December Solstice. This Aquarian Air Era already began to express via the conjunctions of the inner planets with Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius in January and February this year.
Where these occurred 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 receiving blessings, manifesting powers beyond normal understanding, and demonstrating how well we’ve trained our egos to perform in “spectacular ways” for those in our world.<,/p>
Also remember that at this point, we’ve all reached some level on the “mountaintop” where we’ve found a “fellowship of spiritual Sisters and Brothers” we’re a part of. Demonstrate your skill, and remember that attaining the mountaintop only requires a) that we enjoy the view and accomplishment, and b) the awareness of when to begin the careful descent, since we don’t want to get caught on a mountaintop when lighting clouds are blowing in!
Having finished many old ways and left behind all which doesn’t serve our bridge to the future, we now can settle in to our 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. That's a great part to play as we dance through life's changes!
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. As I’ve offered before “enlightenment” is a verb more than it is a noun.
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.
