Easing Up on that T-Square

Saturn moves into 4° Libra today, breaking up the direct opposition to the Uranus/Jupiter conjunction, thus easing the tension and concomitant exhaustion that comes from such an intense relationship.  Uranus has also moved back into Pisces (which occurred August 13), and the beauty-seeking, dreaminess of that water sign is softening the sharp edges of this planet.  Uranus will remain in retrograde in Pisces until December 5th, when it turns direct.  It will remain in Pisces until its final exit next March 11 and on into a longer stay in energetic Aries.  These next 7 months are a  useful time to review the past 7 years of Uranus’ journey through Pisces – look for where this planet has exerted its influence in your natal chart during that time and dive deep to glean the meanings of the external events and internal transformations that have taken place for you.

Understanding the Cardinal Cross of 2010

Metal cross on earth

In order to understand the full dynamics of the Cardinal Cross to which astrologer’s are referring during this time, it is important first to understand the more esoteric and spiritual meanings of a cross.  Though it currently is imbued with a very limited, patriarchal tint, it has appeared in the symbology of countless cultures from pre-history to the present.

It means “the center of life” and embraces all people as equals within it’s circle and upon the branches of it’s perpendicular lines.  Indigenous peoples still utilize this symbol in its primordial form and honor its timeless and universal message.

Dancing with Dissonance: Cosmic Transitions

Approaching this entry has been very similar to trying to approach the changes that are descending upon humanity on a global scale.  In the midst of devastating floods, mudslides and choking wildfires wrought by nature, as well as the continuing catastrophe of the deliberate impoverishment of billions of people through the financial, military and governmental structures fashioned from the sociopathic minds of the few who dub themselves “the elite,” it is, indeed, a challenge to maintain an internal sense of equipoise.  It is, indeed, difficult to construct a rational narrative out of the dissonance and chaos that imbues our micro- and macrocosmic lives.  Our mind-boggling, complicated state of affairs can lead to confusion, hopelessness, helplessness and paralysis.  The rapid unfolding of events since the tight Saturn/Pluto/Uranus-Jupiter t-square of July 26th is a true testament to the on-going dialogue of change our heavenly bodies are undertaking at their  dinner party above us.
