december 14th—uranus square pluto—thorn in your side

Well, in the Heavens, as many of you probably already know, a battle is raging between Pluto and Uranus.

Voyager_Uranus_732X520Since 2012, there have been 5 exact squares and today, December 14th, the 6th will occur, with the final going down next Spring.

Pluto has recently gone direct and is interacting with Uranus Rx this time at 12º 35′ Capricorn and Aries, respectively.

When all is said and done, from the 6th degree to the 15th of Cardinal Fire and Earth, a metamorphosis of monumental proportion will have transpired.

For the last few years, nationally and globally, stargazers have been speculating beforehand, then reporting on afterwards, the mundane, explosive, effects of this dynamic.

There has also been quite an analysis of the the past conjunction between these two leviathans back in 1965/1966. And here is an excellent article comparing the waxing/waning cycles of Pluto/Capricorn throughout the last centuries and into this one.

october 4th—kindling for the bonfire: part 1

This Saturday, October 4th, the grand-Fire-trine perfects, meaning the orbs of  trining Mars, Jupiter and Uranus will be tightest of the whole event.

It is also the day a variety of choice planetary activities occur.

Mercury moved into the 8th sign of Scorpio back on the 27th of September. He has gotten almost through the 2nd degree of the Fixed Water sign, but has slowed and turns retrograde on this day.

Retrograde Mercury inspires anxiety in more than a few astrology buffs.  But not to worry.  He certainly can be managed.  And yes, it is good thinking to expect all manner of glitches in all things mechanical and/or technological, at this time.  It is also not a good time to START new projects necessarily, but instead spend time in reflection.—most importantly, with Scorpio and Libra themed issues.

Such as:

  • How do I communicate my desires and wishes in my most important relationships?   How can I make it better?
  • Do I communicate too intensely to create an intimate bond?  Could I sometimes take it down a notch?
  • Do I keep things too superficial?  Could I risk being more courageous?
  • Am I too geared toward people-pleasing?  Does it get in the way of an authentic exchange?
  • Am I too suspicious for no reason?  Am I too accomodating for no reason?
  • How can I learn to be confident in my ability to make decisions?

See where this is going?
