- Aspects, Configurations, and More -
The next two weeks continues our wild ride in a time of major forks in the road of destiny and a LOT of serendipitous gifts and unique opportunities for specialized situations to be “in the news.” We’re done with the nonstop conflict which dominated July through October, and now are in a weird but unique circumstance which should be excellent for those with planets in the zones of the 10th harmonic evolutionary configuration in play via the Lunation.
This month is certainly dynamic, but strangely, with less friction than any recent month because of only one square. The Full Moon exactly joined with Uranus promises a wild ride and some explosive revolutionary potential, so continue to maintain your inner light and shine it out to those who need it. We have an extraordinary configuration in play for the next two weeks, sure to bring blessings to many. Whereas last month I told you revelations were coming, this month I’ll just revolutions are coming!
This month’s two important evolutionary configurations bring us a variation on one in play last Full Moon. The first involves the Lunation, with the Scorpio/Taurus oppositional axis of awareness cut into a quintile and tredecile by Jupiter (and Pluto), generating a highly specialized and serendipitous void around 19-23 Cancer. This brings gifts and unique interactive blessings to anyone with planets or points near 1-5 Aries/Libra, 7-11 Taurus/Scorpio, 13-17 Gemini/Sag, 19-23 Cancer/Capricorn, and 25-29 Leo/Aquarius.
The second configuration involves the Moon being in the heart of the ongoing extremely powerful evolutionary configuration involving Saturn biseptile Uranus and septile Nepune, with the very rare Uranus septile Neptune, activating a hybrid of both the first Grand Irrationality (1993-2017) and the second Grand Irrationality (2018-2021). As I told you last month, this shows the timekeeper and boundary-setting Saturn is now configured in a non-rational, “fork in the road of destiny” configuration with transpersonal revolutionizer Uranus and boundlessly inclusive Neptune.
We continue our run of months filled with major choices which will determine our future. Those most influenced have planets or points near 25-29 Capricorn, 16-20 Pisces, 7-11 Taurus, 29 Gemini-3 Cancer, 20-24 Leo, 12-16 Libra, and 3-7 Sagittarius. The Moon brings a particular focus, given it is conjunct Uranus, biseptile Saturn, and septile Neptune. Revolutionary forks in the road!
Besides the various aspects I gave you related to the evolutionary configurations, forming (or partile separating) inner planet aspects include Moon biquintile Venus, quindecile Mars, tredecile Jupiter, biseptile Saturn, and conjunct Uranus; Mercury is square Saturn; Venus is widely opposed Mars, tredecile Jupiter, biquintile Uranus, Pentelftile Neptune, and tredecile Pluto; and the Sun is quintile Pluto and Saturn and opposed Uranus.
Outer planet forming and partile separating aspects include Mars binovile Saturn, quindecile Uranus, and semisextile Neptune; Jupiter is conjunct Saturn, tredecile Uranus, sextile Neptune, and conjunct Pluto; Saturn is triggering the Grand Irrationality, and Uranus is still tredecile Pluto.
We have fewer spiritual and a lot of specializing aspects this month, along with a lot related to destiny and “fate.” In that series, we find 3 septiles and 2 biseptiles. In the 9th harmonic series related to spiritual realizations, we have 1 binovile. In the 11th harmonic series related to spiritual realizations, we have 1 pentelftile, and in the specializing aspect series, we have 2 quindeciles, 3 quintiles, SIX tredeciles, and 2 biquintiles. This is a HUGE number of specializing aspects, promising this to be a unique period of time!
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
We’re still “under the beams” of the 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 Eclipse from last Summer and Christmas 2019, whatever is ending will unblock 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.
Along with 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, exploring what success really means to us, and letting go of old “social rigidities” to be happier.
All these Solar Eclipses, along with others, have allowed us to “shed skins” wherever we have 9, 19, and 30 Pisces, 28 Aquarius, along with 29 Leo, 10 Virgo, and 21 Virgo. As you can see, that involves a large part of our charts! I gave you all the Solar Eclipse links in the first article on the Solstice Solar Eclipse, specifying which 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, 2 in Water, 5 in Earth, and 2 in Air. This makes Earth preponderant, with plenty of Air and Water. The preponderance of Earth (Practicality and Grounding), with a healthy balance of Water (Feelings and Experiencing Life on Deep Levels) and Air (Relatedness and Communications) facilitates practical interactivity with the Light of deep feelings. While we only have one planet in Fire (Inspiration and Light), because that planet is Mars in its home sign of Aries, it’s stronger than one might think! Still, with the numerous quintiles to Jupiter, have a sense of humor, since “something’s lost and something’s gained in living every day….” and an empty hand can receive gifts, while a closed hand cannot.
Air and Earth are “cool” elements, while Fire and Water are “hot” elements. With this distribution, we have twice as much cool as heat. Just remember that with 7 planets in Earth and Water, this combo makes either mud or bricks, depending on how you work with the material. So while some will find a greater focus in a self-organized “enlightened self-interest,” others will find themselves “stuck in the mud” of defensive calculations. Mars’ Fire can assists us to make the bricks for the structures we’re building via the Earth energies, though there may be delays due to both Mercury and Mars being retrograde.
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 is the same pattern as the last Full Moon. As a process of moving through events, the most effective “firing sequence” for approaching life and experience involves leading with our feelings, then thinking, and then deciding.
This pattern leads with feelings, and then searches for information about those hunches. This pattern is great for being empathetic and sympathetic, but gets hung up in not knowing what to do or delaying action because of internal reversals. While it is tempting to move back into the feeling mode after getting more information or a vision, after we get these it will be important to make a decision and act on it without getting lost in needing more and more information based in hunches.
Especially with Mercury RX in Libra, don’t get lost in too much second guessing, so beware of your feelings leading you into an endless search for knowledge when all you need to do is act! Once we do what we need to do, then a new feeling-experience will naturally arise that points the way to an even newer understanding and the next set of decisions and actions.
Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend
Because Saturn is in its home sign of Capricorn, 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 is in Capricorn, Saturn again is a major presence on the planetary stage as a final dispositor sharing power with Mercury, Mars and Neptune.
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 have 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 will allow our “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 should bring many interactive gifts and blessings, and unique circumstances perfect for what we need to bring forth our specialized talents and insights. This is a time to allow spontaneity and joy to come forth as an antidote to the heaviness and hostility in the atmosphere. We have made it through a long season of conflict, and while there’s more to come, it will be of a different nature.
This Full Moon brings a focus on the coming conflicts involving Taurus, and while Leo isn’t directly activated at this time, that type of heart strength is exactly what we’ll need in 2021. This past year we’ve trained, organized, gotten in shape for group work even as we’ve all graduated into an entirely new realm of Being. This is a harvest time, where we can maintain our equilibrium and even find a transcendent view beyond the dualities and conflicts of daily life.
This year we’ve been moving through a long wave metamorphosis as we transition through the beginning of the end of the Age of Pisces, entering into 35 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.
The multiple conjunctions in Capricorn between mid-January through late March brought tremendous fusions of future cycles and alter both inner and outer space for years to come. These Capricorn conjunctions involved many house rulers converging wherever we have late Capricorn in our charts. The compression of the first 3 months of the year set up the open conflict happening now which will last through 2022. Remember this entire year is one of transition from a 200 year Earth Era toward a 200 year Air Era which launches in December 2020 at the Grand Mutation!
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 two years, and have the ability to find assistance from Devas and Angels who bring “divine help when human efforts seem to fail.” 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!
Having blended the old with the new, the traditional with the innovative, we now can live an adventure in higher awareness where we can demonstrate expertise in 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.
