Today, and for the next few days, there is a change of climate going on. Very often, i notice that a change in the astrological climate gets reflected in the actual weather as well. Today the moon is in Aries, conjunct Uranus, which is part of a harmonic aspect with the Sun and Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Leo. The blue triangle at the top of the chart shows this aspect. Also the Uranus Pluto square is activated today.
There is a changing of the guard going on. There is a very powerful heart force (Sun/Mars conjunction) aligned with the warriors of truth (Uranus in Aries, Mars’ home sign) and the creative joy of Jupiter in Leo. The opportunity is there to realize just how much creative power you have, and to combine it with others. (Uranus rules groups). The Gemini Sun and Mars urge us to simply reflect reality and act spontaneously from there, without thought.
For me, a good image for Gemini in its most positive manifestation, is that of two mirrors facing each other. You can see infinity. When the mind rests in non dual contemplation, illuminated by the heart, infinity is revealed. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the quicksilver substance of mind, which is just going direct, or forward today, after being retrograde for the last few weeks. The mind has come to a stand, and is turning now to look outward again. With great curiosity and innocence (Gemini) we can begin to act on our visions (Neptune in Pisces).
Also of note is that Pluto in Capricorn, and Saturn, are both retrograde. The power structure is falling apart. Saturn is about to return to Scorpio for a final purge. The way of ego (Saturn) no longer works. Both Saturn (ego) in Scorpio (death) and Pluto (death) in Capricorn (ego) can include the process of ego death. They are also in a 45 degree semi-square with each other, which has the harmonic power of 8, the alchemical process of change. We can think of semi squares as the higher octave of squares, which have the power of four, and represent change. The 8th harmonic semi square (1/8th of the circle) reveals a deeper layer of change, a transformation of substance itself.
The power structure on the planet is undergoing a massive shift. If we really want to see things change, we can assist it by understanding how the matrix has infected our lives. Going “off-grid” is so much more multi-dimensional than simply having solar panels. If you use your solar panels to run your TV to watch the news, well, what kind of change is that?
The ego, which is the belief in separate self, and the contraction of the body-mind around that belief, is the way the matrix keeps you under control. Saturn, and Capricorn, represent that process. It is the limit of the personal self. This limit is based on a contraction, even in the subtle bodies. So we enter into “contracts” with the government, corporations, and each other, which all help enforce the domination of ego in our lives. Contracts are “binding”. Notice the contraction in your own body and mind. That is helping to create the hologram we are now experiencing. We can each do our part in letting that way of being go, by going through our own process of releasing the contraction of ego from our energy field and body. We WILL see it reflected in the world “outside”.
Over the last few years we have let go of a lot. The square of Uranus and Pluto has been grinding us down, as a very deep shift occurs. This square has been the stage set for the whole scenario of the last 5 years. We have recently turned the corner with these energies, and now we are starting to gain some momentum towards the new. The current configuration encourages us to begin to connect with our people and get to work, towards the new vision.
Think of the moon almost like a radar, which brings down to earth for a few hours the energies of whatever planet it contacts. Today the moon brings us the energy of Uranus. Uranus is part of both configurations, the harmonic triangle with the Sun and Jupiter, and the immense challenge of the Pluto Uranus square. Today the opportunity is there to connect with radical solutions, and the people who will help bring them about. Don’t forget that you are a vital part of the puzzle. Each of us IS the process of Source Creation itself. Now is the time to offer your unique creative solutions into the mix.
