We’re now at the time of the year when all the inner planets are closing in on the span occupied by the outer planets. September through December is a mini-era dominated by themes related to the recent early Virgo conjunctions trine Saturn which created Mutable T-squares with Jupiter and Neptune. The future promised by the Virgo conjunctions trine Saturn will come into clearer focus as they all conjunct in Capricorn in January and March! This period gives us tremendous integrative possibilities related to practical spiritual discipleship and Divine Discrimination, a.k.a.Viveka.
We now leave a month of visualizing what we want to see come forth, and in the next month will understand that sometimes we have to destroy to rebuild a better foundation or a stronger structure. There will be a need for a lot of flexibility in the next 4 weeks, given the Lunation oppositions to Uranus, Mars square Saturn, and Mercury very slow about to go retrograde!
Many Scorpio types of things will be set into motion due to the Sun, Mercury, and Venus all in Scorpio at this New Moon. Much that is generated over the next month will be set into active motion when Mars transits Scorpio in November and December, just as the current Mars in Libra is activating what came to life during the inner planet transits of Libra in September and October. Just remember that because of Mercury being retrograde through late November, there may be some time lags in when things are activated.
The early September T-squares with Jupiter and Neptune helped us all integrate or reintegrate toward wider futures and truths. We are now experiencing the penultimate opposition of the year with the Lunation opposed Uranus. Except for the late November Mars opposed Uranus, this completes many months of oppositions to the outer Spiritual planets. After Mars opposes Uranus, we’ll have no more non-Lunar oppositions until next Summer’s inner planet oppositions to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn.
Jupiter and Saturn
This is the twenty-third New Moon of the Saturn in Capricorn era! We approach many new Saturn cycles during the Great Compression coming in January, February, and March. In 2018 Saturn helped us get beyond fear; in 2019 Saturn taught us through some sort of “planned group behavior.” As it’s now moving forward toward its rare and very powerful conjunction with Pluto in March, we see it’s entered the second half of Capricorn, putting the focus on “Group Performance” on a degree of exercise, play, and how we must must take care of our body if we are to be healthy.
This is the twelfth New Moon of the Jupiter in Sagittarius era! This month it’s picking up speed as it completes its occupancy of the end of Sagittarius, promising great harvests in the near future if we have the right attitude toward the new world we’re about to enter. Doors will open for those who are prepared to reorient, risk the lesser self for the possibility of greater Selfhood, and greet the unknown and unfamiliar with optimism and an open mind.
As it is the first planet in the outer planet occupied span, Jupiter continues to stand as the gatekeeper to all the other social-spiritual planets. If Jupiter in Sag is the natural way to enter all experience, then if it’s not leading to a sense of freedom, openness, expansion, and greater truths or futures, don’t go there! However, since we now have all the planets between mid-Libra and early Taurus, Jupiter is buried in the mix, so to speak.
Jupiter in Scorpio (Oct 2017- Nov 2018) was bound, or cocooned in some way. Jupiter in Sagittarius, its natural home of Distributive Fire, opens a sense of life as a grand adventure in consciousness. We are at the end stages of “Jupiter unbound,” where as we cultivated a sense of humor, generosity, and an abundant view we relieved a lot of pressure. As Jupiter seeks truth, we’ve had to be honest with ourselves and others and lighten up.
Since Jupiter rules both our Sag and Pisces sectors, we’ve learned a lot about being compassionate and forgiving side, but also the truth that as greater lives open for us, we have to let go of lesser things. As we have blessed and forgiven, we have seen grace made manifest in our lives in distinctively Sagittarius ways. Understanding how Grace and blessings have manifested in Sag areas of our life will naturally yield an understanding of how it will manifest in the Capricorn areas of our lives next year.
So What’s Happening?
Today we’ll do an overview of the Lunation and some of its primary qualities. In part 2 we’ll cover Sabian Symbols, aspects, distributions, and patterns.
This intensely magnetic, powerful, and reconstructive New Moon occurs at 5 Scorpio at 8:38 pm PDT October 27, 3:38 am GMT October 28, 2019. This will bring us into the Light of seeing a vaster time perspective in our creative expression, or a need to eliminate something hardened over time to create the means for regenerating something which has stagnated due to the abuse of human freedom. This is a very intense New Moon due to the opposition to Uranus, but it’s also highly specializing since the Lunation makes quintiles to both Saturn and Pluto.
We are now firmly out of the long run of the “alternate” Sun/Moon relationships, having entered into the “normal” sequence in April. The New Moon at 16 Aries was the first in the new sequence where the New Moon Sun was in the same sign as the next Full Moon Sun which was at 30 Aries. Last month’s New Moon at 6 Libra was followed by the Full Moon with the Sun at 21 Libra, signaling the Light of seeing our previously held ideals and thought forms made manifest was realized in some form of explosive personality integration which has forced a purification process the past 2 weeks!
This New Moon at 5 Scorpio is the seed theme for the coming Full Moon at 20 Scorpio/Taurus, showing the New Moon themes of integrity, purification, and depth experience will find fulfillment in the Light of knowing which way the “winds of destiny” are blowing which prod us to part the veil and enter the unknown. The next 4 weeks should be a deep experience of what is permanent and impermanent, and those who can do joyous reconstruction or repair work will be the Masters of the day.
How The Sun/Moon Sequence Shifts
There are two patterns: one with the Sun in the same sign as the Sun in the following Full Moon (New Moon between 1-15 degrees of a sign), and one with the Sun in a different sign than it’s in at the following Full Moon (New Moon between 16-30 degrees of a sign).
Before the April New Moon, the last Lunation where we had the New Moon Sun in the same sign as the next Full Moon Sun was the July 2017 New Moon at 1 Leo, which was the fifteenth in that sequence. The next Full Moon had the Sun at 16 Leo, and finished the run of Full Moons with the Sun in the same sign as the preceding New Moon Sun.
The next New Moon was the August 2017 Solar Eclipse at 29 Leo, when we shifted to the second (reverse) pattern, since that New Moon Solar Eclipse was followed by a Full Moon with the Sun at 14 Virgo and Moon at 14 Pisces. We were in this “reversed order” between August 2017 and April 2019. Since April we’ve been back in “the natural order.” I also explain more about this phenomenon and what it means in the Full Moon articles.
The New Moons and Full Moons are “God’s footprints in time.” Each shows the next in the 12 phases of how things come to be each year. The cycle could be described as follows: Life energy is initiated in Aries, substantiated in Taurus, explored in Gemini, grounded in Cancer, renewed and creatively expressed in Leo, refined and ordered in Virgo, balanced and made pleasing in Libra, purified and focused in Scorpio, expanded in Sagittarius, organized in Capricorn, solidified into a vision in Aquarius, and ended/perpetuated in Pisces.
An Overview of the New Moon
We are now at the waning phase of the yearly cycles between the inner planets and the outer planet occupied hemispheric zone between Jupiter and Uranus. The Lunation triggers the death of things blocking our ability to awaken to the “new quality of Being rendering the old patterns obsolete.” There are powerful lines of opposition here, but we must individualize by saying goodbye to old fixed ways of relating to matter, people, and magnetism. It will be most difficult for those who are blocked physically and/or emotionally.
With so much tension between Taurus and Scorpio with Mars square Saturn, adapt as well as you can, don’t get stuck in bogged down situations, if you’re out on a limb pull back and be content with what you’ve accomplished, and don’t get deflected by irrelevancies, or useless disputes which don’t concern you. It will be good for taking a new look at “the floor plan of your house of personality” so you can figure out who and what fits where, what to welcome, what sustains you, what must leave your life, and what’s ultimately true for you.
This New Moon will jumpstart Scorpio energy wherever it falls in our chart, so use this time to find a laser like focus on what has become stuck, and “break on through to the other side yeah.” Remember that it takes time to achieve any work which endures, so don’t be in a hurry. Find the right rhythm and perspective, and remember a hundreds small steps make get you further than a few big ones.
In recent weeks Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all went direct in motion, beginning the next phase of our collective spiritual evolution. Now that the inners are between mid-Libra and late Scorpio, they’ll ALL make waning aspects to all the outer spiritual planets. The only exception is Mars, which will begin its waning aspect series after late November. As I’ve noted, all the planets are moving toward the Grand Compression in the first 90 days of 2020, setting the stage for the Grand Mutation of late 2020, launching both a new 20 year cycle AND a new 200 year era!
So What Rules the Lunation?
This New Moon in Scorpio has Mars as its worldly ruler, and Pluto in Capricorn as its spiritual ruler. As Mars is in its “exile” in Libra, it is the dispositor of the Lunation. Mars in Libra is ruled by Venus which is in Scorpio, the sign Mars rules. This puts them in “Mutual Reception,” a very powerful “closed loop” of self-reinforcing, self-referencing energies. So this month are back to only three planets in their home signs. Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in the signs they rule, making things very clear and natural in all matters ruled by those planets.
This means as usual, the rulerships are split, and Venus’ dominance last month now gives way to Venus and Mars sharing center stage in signs which are opposed to their nature! The Lunation, Mercury, and Venus are ruled by Mars, which is ruled by Venus, which also rules Uranus. Jupiter rules itself, Saturn rules itself and Pluto, and Neptune continues as a longwave “standalone” dispositor of itself, ruling the fogs and mists of the current collective consciousness.
While we’ve been in a long term period of having at least three final dispositors, this continues the mutual reception we’ve had since Venus entered Scorpio. In November, Venus returns to Sagittarius while Mars is in Libra and the Sun and Mercury are in Scorpio, again putting Jupiter as the backdrop to all these planetary energies and beginning a time when Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune will again be the four final dispositors ruling all the other planets except for when the Moon is in Cancer. You can find out more about dispositors in general, chains of dispositors, and mutual reception by going to dispositors and Mutual Receptionat the link.
The Grand Irrationality
The reason this section is a recurring feature in the Lunation articles is because it was set into long term play by the 2011 Solar Eclipse, as well as subsequent Solar Eclipses whose influence continues. These effects are triggered each time any transiting planet occupies any of the 7 zones of the Grand Irrationality. Since then it’s been reinforced and triggered by various Lunations, planetary stations, and transits.
It’s been active in past Solar Eclipses in Pisces (2017) and Leo (2018), indicating its influence persists in some way throughout the period we can expect Eclipse effects to manifest. It’s why we are in a period of dynamic unstable energies which at times make no sense. This configuration was set into motion by any conjunction with or septile-series aspect to Neptune or Pluto, and is currently activated by any 7th harmonic aspect to Uranus or Pluto.
In this chart the Grand Irrationality is not triggered by an inner planet, even though Uranus is now fully biseptile Pluto keeping the nonrational energies prominent in the collective atmosphere. If you’re wondering why some people are being irrational right now, it’s likely because they have a planet in one of the 7 zones affected by the configuration. The Uranus biseptile Pluto is now forming seeds which will be released as planets transit Capricorn between late November and March 2020, with Jupiter keeping the tension through November 2020 en route to the Grand Mutation.
The First Grand Irrationality Has Given Way to the Second Grand Irrationality
While the Grand Irrationality involving Neptune and Pluto was active between the mid-90s and 2017, last year a new variation on the generic irrationality was introduced, creating what I’ve termed “The Grand Irrationality V.2.” Uranus made its first biseptile to Pluto in 2018, and as it moves further into Taurus, it again biseptiled Pluto for the second time at the end of May and beginning of June. Even during the past few months when Uranus was not biseptile Pluto, the nonrationality was still triggered any time a planet makes a 7th harmonic aspect to either Uranus or Pluto, so it’s still in regular play if only in an “offset” way.
This means we can’t relax too much while moving through the “forks in the road of destiny” at this time in history. Both the Grand Irrationality AND the off-set 7th harmonic pulses made as planets aspect Uranus and Pluto get triggered every few weeks by transits, and of course the Moon triggers both of these 7 times each month. Each time there’s a transit to any of the 7 zones made by Uranus, Neptune or Pluto septile series aspects, it profoundly affects those with a planet or angle in any of the 7 “hot zones” defining the phenomenon.
For those who are new to the site, here’s a bit of explanation about this thing called “the Grand Irrationality” associated with why everything continues to be so weird. As I’ve explained many times before, the Grand Irrationality is a long wave non-rational influence that has put everyone on Earth on the unceasing edge of major choice and change.
Everyone has been confronting inner compulsions, continual choices that seem to have a major impact on our destiny, and occasionally irrational behaviors in others or external conditions. It is why things seem to have an unending hard edge, why so many choices are continually thrown in our faces that require immediate attention, and why reason seems to fail at critical moments of decision.
When the Grand Irrationality is in play, it’s a time when things don’t have to make sense. We’ve been living with it for about 25 years, and it will be active for a couple more years to come, even though we’ve begun to be on the far side of the original Neptune/Pluto relationship that created it. However, effects continue to be felt due to past Solar Eclipses which triggered the configuration.
We are now past the era of Neptune septile Pluto. Because of their orbits, late Autumn through mid-Spring narrows the distance between these two planets, but as we get into late Spring through mid-Autumn, they are closer to a sextile than the previous septile. That means we’ve moving into an era we last experienced between 1942-1995.
The Grand Irrationality V.2.
This phase began in June 2018 when Uranus first biseptiled Pluto. By November it was out of orb, but with Saturn’s transit of mid-Capricorn, the biseptile between that sign and Uranus was activated from January through July 2019. At this time Saturn is not yet biseptile Uranus, but Uranus has definitely returned to the biseptile with Pluto!
Uranus biseptile Pluto symbolizes the irrational revolutionary conditions and upheaval of our times. Uranus is pulled into the configuration as it gets further into Taurus, so even when Neptune makes a constant sextile to Pluto by this time next year, we’ll still be in the thick of Uranus biseptile Pluto, which will mark a time of some very wild rides!
The current degree spans that trigger this transformative mass configuration are around 3-7 Taurus, 25-29 Gemini, 16-20 Leo, 7-11 Libra, 28 Scorpio-2 Sag, 19-23 Capricorn, and 11-15 Pisces. If you have a planet or angle in any of these zones, you are making critical choices and decisions that will alter your future in important ways. This event requires that we allow what’s been stuffed down to come up to the surface of our lives, and see how we can allow use the available power wisely.
So we’ve resumed the larger Pluto-driven part of the GI V.2 now that Pluto is retrograding back into the biseptile with Uranus, which resume the path through even weirder events than we’ve known the past 25 years. This biseptile has been and will be associated with “extraordinary irrationality” every time it’s triggered. Things may not make sense, but they don’t have to. We just have to learn to navigate with a steady hand and an eye for abrupt changes.
Speaking of Uranus…
Remember that in 2017, 2018, and 2019 Uranus has taught us to listen to our inner voice to find our place in the Cosmic Choir. This awakened in July 2017, and was part of the spiritual training the Grand Fires Trines of that year stimulated in our charts. Awakening to our unique “song to sing” within a greater harmony has resulted in life changes in who we sing with and what songs we sing. We have been learning that in any choir, there are times to sing unisons, times to sing harmonies, times to sing solo, and times not to sing at all. Even when we’re not singing, we’re still part of the choir. What is your part to sing? Be as clear as you can about what you can offer to the harmony of the whole, and keep training to bring it forth!
Besides being a part of the Grand Irrationality V.2, (also known as “the Grand Irrationality on steroids,”) Uranus also brings a harder edge than Neptune septile Pluto since it is also off-and-on semisquare Neptune, adding a very frictional "cutting and grinding" quality to the collective field. Add Saturn to the mix and there are some serious lessons in the air for all of humanity!
So TGI V.2 began from May through November 2018, and except for a few weeks in August-September 2019, the Uranus biseptile Pluto will be in full swing between May 2019 and December 2019 and then again March through June 2020 and Nov 2020 through April 2021. This chapter of global craziness won't be going away anytime soon, so get your navigational skills in shape to ride this storm out!
Neptune and Chiron in Pisces and Aries
I have offered this segment each month for years to give you a broader perspective on the collective atmosphere, and the long wave changes humanity is going through. Because Neptune has been in Pisces for about 8 years, we’ve been navigating through the threshold of an entirely new era which will not resemble the old Age in any way within just a few decades. We’re already solidly in the Dreamscape, as many old things end as we learn to maneuver the field.
The last half of 2011 helped many break out of their "chrysalis" and transform their lives and relationships. If you want to know what's coming for many years to come, take a look back at the intuitions and sense of belonging to a vaster interrelated whole you were shown in Spring and Summer of 2011. It may help to give a sense of our collective lesson in dissolving our separateness as we finish this transition through "the Winter of the 21st Century" on our way to Spring, beginning in 2025!
In this chart, Chiron is retrograde at 3 Aries. It went RX at 5, marking a threshold of developing the early Aries “healing into our Higher Self” themes of Chiron in this sign. Chiron first transited 5 Aries in May 2019, and made its first retrograde pass back over that degree in August. This month because Chiron is retrograde on the degree where it went SRX in the Summer of 2018, we can see how by embracing a larger life role since then we’ve healed into our Higher Self.
In the Spring of 2019 Chiron transited this degree again, bringing a new push into our Aries healing related to “identifying with a larger life,” and becoming the embodiment of some healing force within our society or group. The healing we’re doing in this season is leading us to objectivity through humor, and the themes of November will help us be ready to embrace a greater social role by February 2020. In March 2020 Chiron will again transit its 5 Aries SRX degree very close to the time of the Mars-Saturn conjunction at 1 Aquarius in late March.
So the “healing into our higher Self” we’ve done since March will be part of the preliminary push toward the way we’ll BE in 2021 and beyond. Interestingly, this all relates to the Grand Mutation which begins in December 2020 with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction also at 1 Aquarius. Coincidentally, that’s the same month Chiron goes stationary direct at 5 Aries, indicating themes associated with that degree will be evident in the “healing of the world” over the next 20 years!
Chiron was first was in early Aries between April and September 2018, and is now moving deeper into this first sign of the zodiac. This indicates our long term mentoring and/or healing into our Higher Self involves embracing all that is new, realizing we have a unique individual part to play in “the healing of humanity.” Since July 2018, Chiron has now mentored us into “identifying with a larger life” as we became some type of “exemplar” for others, with the next month giving us a new look at what that has meant, and what it could mean in the future.
We had our dress rehearsal for this new Aries era of Chironic healing energies last year, and now get to learn how to use those energies skillfully through 2026, when it enters Taurus and we move into the next Chironic era. With Chiron at the end of Pisces and beginning of Aries in 2018, we were in an important position in space-time where we have had to embrace compassion, forgiveness, and a vast understanding of ourselves as Spirits having human experiences. And to be human is to be flawed. Those flaws provide the spur for us to overcome them by transmuting them into strengths and skills which serve a higher purpose in our lives.
Because it’s now at the beginning of Aries, it’s finished its task at “the end of the end” and now mentors us at “the beginning of the beginning.” In 2018 and early 2019, we’ve been healing into our Higher Self by saying goodbye to some things and saying hello to others. As Jupiter and Uranus transited this span several times in 2010-2011, what was awakened then and since prepared us to be healed and/or mentored into our individuality. The vision or the new truth and future which led to a personal revolution then has been the source of us being mentored, or us mentoring others.
Chiron now opens lessons of using imagination to envision a self-transcendence and a new way of expressing our individuality. As it went SRX at 6 Aries, keep opening to which part of “primal selfhood” you are illuminating, remembering any “inner restlessness” shows the way into a new “uncontrolled interest in any given thing.”
During the years Chiron was in Pisces, we were shown how to bless a lot and let it go, including dogmas and beliefs which kept us stuck in ambivalence or suffering. We healed by having compassion for ourselves and the suffering we share with the world. Now in Aries we heal by living in the NOW, embracing our new lives by identifying with a larger Life and collective work.
Chiron in late Pisces heralded what will be “dreamed into collective consciousness” by Neptune these next 7 years. Chiron transits help each of us heal anew through our positioning within collective consciousness. When in Pisces, we were mentored in Piscean ways. When in Aries, we are finding ways to mentor and be mentored in Aries, healing into our higher Self by moving into direct action, securing our initial position in the new Life, leading to a vision of a larger role to play in the future as an inspiration to others.
Neptune shows us how to merge the sacred and the everyday in our lives. We now have received a new inspiration, and begun a long term collective renewal. In this chart, Neptune is still camped out at 17 Pisces. It hasn’t been in this part of Pisces since 1854-56, and its recent retrograde station at 19 Pisces was the first time it was on that degree since then.
It first occupied 17 Pisces in May, June, and July 2018 when it went stationary retrograde on that degree. It again was at 17 Pisces in March of 2019 and will make its final pass over this degree in January 2020. The themes of 17 Pisces involve involving forms of social or collective renewal and devotion to a greater collective good. As this was the SD degree of Mercury in March, it would seem the collective field is directly being impacted by the Mercurial events set into motion last February and March.
Remember too that numerous Solar Eclipses in Pisces are still in effect. We had Eclipses at 30, 19, and 9 Pisces, all of which also had Neptune in Pisces. These have had a profound effect on the field of the collective consciousness, as well as the collective unconscious. Given Neptune is the spiritual ruler of Pisces, it’s also been involved in the eclipses at Virgo 21 and 10 by opposition, creating a “Tension of Opposites” that profoundly impacted the collective spiritual field.
The March 2015 Solar Eclipse at 30 Pisces helped us get very clear about the new “law of life” we yearned for, and sent out the thought form that created the life we’ve led since then. That Eclipse and events related to it have been given a renewed clarity via the March Mercury retrograde and the recent transit of Mercury and Venus over this degree. We now know why many things had to end in the past 4 years, since those things were incompatible with the future we’re now living.
As mentioned, the March 2016 Solar Eclipse at 19 Pisces helped us “take a walk with our wisdom,” beginning the release of all things that would impede our receptivity to that wisdom. The March 2017 Solar Eclipse at 9 Pisces continues to assist us in releasing the last baggage we no longer need over the next few years.
So Neptune is now “dreaming” into collective consciousness the same themes Chiron introduced to us between 2013-2015. As you can see, both Neptune and Chiron have been taking us into a far vaster collective healing and mentoring than we’ve known in many decades. Collectively, we’re now solidly in a newer spiritual realm, where our ego mind has been introduced to a deeper and vaster Soul realm and our testing has begun.
Because Neptune already entered the second half of Pisces, where it hasn’t been since 1855-58, it indicates that collective consciousness in 2018-2020 is in a zone filled with turmoil historically. Given Pluto is also in a zone where it last was in 1773-1774, it would seem a “pre-revolution” is in the air!
The North Node
The coming 4 weeks will show us the value of humor and irony in understanding how to puncture “ego pomposity.” We continue to grow through what we care about as well as through our personal individual feelings and good things will come to those who cultivate “the light touch of masterful living.” Interestingly, this month the NN is the exact degree of the July 2019 Solar Eclipse, so we should a) see how we’ve grown by what has been taken away in that sector of our life, and b) move in the direction of the humor and objectivity which has popped up since then.
In November 2018 we left the North Node in Leo and South Node in Aquarius era which began in May 2017, and entered the NN in Cancer and SN in Capricorn era. When the NN is in Cancer, our greatest development is through our ability to be tender, caring, and nurturing of all that we feel close to. This is where we learn through the “Mother principle,” and use “enlightened self-interest” to gather what we need to make our lives more secure. Because the SN is in Capricorn, we will demonstrate these qualities through being mature and responsible, organized and willing to work to demonstrate our personal skills in forms of social power.
The North Node in the second decan of Cancer brings a specific focus to the Scorpio qualities of the sign of Cancer. This will bring forth a greater intensity, with a specific theme of enjoyment within a social setting. This should help us purify and/or eliminate everything in our immediate feeling experience which is stuck or negative.
These will express through the South Node in the Taurus decan of Capricorn. This should help us express our emotional growth through allowing ourselves to feel “the way of nurture,” enjoying our new found emotional experience within some kind of group performance. As Saturn is currently conjuncting the South Node, we are on the threshold of an entirely new long wave cycle of demonstrating through Saturn what we learned through Saturn in the past 6 years since Saturn last conjuncted the North Node in Scorpio in 2013.
Summing Up - The Big Picture
We are now closing in on major new cycles in our lives! We continue to open to greater freedom based in newer and broader truths and a sense of needing to fulfill new duties and responsibilities. We have seen our creativity in a new light, shaped and refined our expression so we are more practical and useful in whatever group work we are to do, and now can experience a greater depth intensity as we “gather our medicine.”
Over the past 6 months we’ve been practicing skills related to new forms of social and group activity and “doing our Dharma” in the world. Given Pluto’s influence the past year, the Law of Economy of Energy was a crucial factor in surrendering to achieve spiritual victory, and as we tend the seeds of moving toward “transcendent security,” we will find Dharma rolls to play throughout this year and 2020.
2017’s Solar Eclipses in Pisces and Leo, and 2018’s Eclipses in Aquarius, Cancer and Leo have quickened us, and we’ve been eliminating a lot of expectancies, considerations, and excess baggage. We continue to dump all kinds of old ghosts and elements of pride that would hinder our hearts from its authentic self-expression, and are getting clear about our priorities and what we should and should not expect of ourselves and others. As a result of the 2018 Eclipses, we’ve hit the end of an old quest, attained some ambition, and now are learning a new freedom and togetherness.
Summing Up – The Immediate Picture
This period will help us take a broader perspective of what can be accomplished at any given time, where we understand the more permanent elements of life and what it takes to endure the storms across time. This is a time to concentrate, eliminate, and regenerate. Because Mercury is about to go retrograde conjunct Venus, the next few weeks will feature a lot of review, retrospective, and memories, both accurate and inaccurate.
Be as flexible as you can be in all confrontations. Bury the past, see it as a “gift of exercise” so we can get in shape for future group work, and continue to search for the meaning of “success.” Some will understand that the end of the quest they’ve experienced the past 2 weeks can have a beneficial outcome if we do our best to sing our song on the stage of life. Just beware of drama kings and queens operating from a sense of needing to defend what doesn’t need defending.
Saturn brings us lessons showing us the need for exercise, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The next 4 weeks will give us “snapshots of faith” from many different angles, as well as a depth understanding of the flaws in situations, arguments, and structures. Saturn’s patient, gentle, and wise understanding has prepared us for the group work already on the horizon, and Jupiter encourages us to laugh, love and dance with life, seeing things from a higher, broader, and more abundant spiritual angle, finding the right attitude as we get ready “to enter a new land.” Many Saturnine and Plutonic gifts and special circumstances are coming over the next few weeks, so enjoy the anticipation of things to come in 2020 while being flexible in letting go of the past and repairing what needs repair.
We have already awakened to a “a new quality of being rendering the old patterns obsolete,” and have been finding allies with whom we can do good “bridge building” work. This is the next phase of burying the past so we can open the door to a renewal. Again, a major theme is that sometimes we must destroy to rebuild. This one shows lines of tensional awareness which can lead to needed restructuring and rebuilding.
See you soon with part 2, which will cover Sabian Symbols, Jones patterns, element distribution, and a whole lot more!
