SUPER ASTRO UPDATE! THE SKY IS LIT WITH MARS CONJUNCT PLUTO! (Major Yod + Grand Water Trine + Cardinal T-Square!)

Mars conjunct Pluto

At 6:31 am, 11/11/14 (GMT + 8), Mars will be exactly conjunct Pluto at 11 Capricorn. (numerologists – note the 11-s). Mars/Pluto is sextiled Chiron Rx (13 Pisces) and both inconjunct Juno (12 Leo) – creating a SUPERYOD. I can’t think of any other yod this year which has involved such a concentration of energy. With the apex of the yod in Juno – all of the energy is going to focus upon one’s soulmate relationships and/or one’s connection with the Flow of the Feminine, i.e. Goddess Consciousness! Refer to my previous article for more details –

Whilst this is going on, we also have a Grand Water Trine between the Moon in Cancer, Neptune/Chiron Rx in Pisces and Mercury/Pallas Athena/Sun in Scorpio – strong, strong, emotions from deep, deep, karmic ties come out to play.

The Moon in Cancer also creates a T-Square with Uranus Rx (13 Aries) and Mars/Pluto. Remember that Uranus Rx and Pluto are squared within 2 degrees of one another. Those with astrological placements near 13 Libra will experience this as a powerful GRAND CARDINAL CROSS. – a tremendous challenge to your sense of self, ideas of power/success and your most tender emotional being.

The Moon is inconjunct Ceres at 5 Sag – those with placements at or near 5 Aquarius will experience this as a YOD – a further point of karmic crisis and/or key decision point in life. This involves your ability to nurture and be nurtured, as well as key aspects of your emotions and subconscious make-up.

Pluto erupts and transforms through crisis. Mars asserts and acquires through action. When the two meet, we see a powerful amplification of energy. All of that feeds into the alignments described above.

Powerful transformations await us all. Go through them with as much grace and integrity as you can. Just under 4 hours to go!

Sun-Chiron opposition

Blessings everyone. I know we’ve already been preparing for this Supermoon for a week now – but there’s another peak of intensity that comes one day before it is due – the Sun-Chiron opposition at 15 Vir/Pis ’23. 

Chiron is the Wounded Healer, or the Soul Healer – Its energy represents the deepest wounding within you. When opposed by the Sun, your conscious awareness of the wound is amplified. You may ‘feel it more’ at this time. Chiron Retrograde is in Pisces, signifying that the the issue most likely has something to do with your spiritual path and connection with Spirit. The Sun is in Virgo and is finding practical ways of getting things done and working with matter to keep the rhythm of life in balance.

Many will be feeling the sense of wounding even more so with the energy of the Full Moon, as the Moon will be so close to it. Consider this opposition a prelude, or taster of what is to come. Don’t be worried if you suddenly start crying or remembering past things that hurt you – they’re coming out now so you can become aware of them, and find ways to heal them. Stay centered, grounded – and if you feel overwhelmed – find some sacred/quiet space and simply breathe. That’s a perfectly valid response to the overwhelming energy that this configuration can bring.

It’s a good idea not to wound others, or to place yourself in circumstances where you are likely to get wounded. Being by yourself (only if you can handle it) or in the company of a reliable support group is a good idea at this time.

Now this opposition and upcoming Full Moon aren’t the only exact aspects in the sky – as you can see in the graphic – there’s quite a few of them.

The Sun-Chiron opposition forms the backbone of a Kite formation involving the Juno-Vesta/Saturn-Chiron Retrograde Grand Water Trine (link provided). In this formation, the energy of the Trine gets channeled and bounced back and forth in the opposition. The focal point would tend to be Chiron Retrograde in Pisces, however.

We’ve also got the Final Grand Cardinal Cross of 2014, involving Pallas Athena, Pluto Retrograde, Uranus Retrograde and Juno. At present, Pallas and Pluto – and – Uranus and Juno are squaring one another at an orb of +/- 1 degree. That’s pretty intense. Through Juno, the Grand Cross feeds into the Grand Trine, and therefore into the Sun-Chiron opposition.

We also have a very powerful Yod (Finger of Fate) formed by a sextile between the Sun (focus, awareness) and Vesta (priest/essing, spiritual service, tending the sacred flame, regeneration), both inconjunct/quincunx Uranus Retrograde (awakening, breakthrough, surprise, suddenness, the unexpected). Again Uranus is already engaged in the square with Juno (see above) – so all these configurations are connected and energetically amplifying the pivotal Sun-Chiron opposition.

There’s other things happening in the sky right now, but these are the most important aspects of the lot. I’ve skipped an explanation of what each bring as I’ve covered all the aspects in the links listed below. The one thing I haven’t explained is the Yod – so here goes:

Sun/Virgo sextiles Vesta/Saturn/Scorpio both quincunx Uranus Retrograde in Aries. I see this as a sudden, fairly abrupt issue that may arise from something that seems ‘mundane’, perfectly ‘day to day’. The roots of the issue or event may be more obscure, rooted back in your soul’s biography. The issue will unfold in an almost explosive way – and powerfully challenge your understanding of yourself – and the sacred authority you bear within you – at this time. You have the choice between hubris and humility, so make it wisely. Some may even manifest this as some kind of unexpected physical event or encounter are Aries often relates to the physical body itself. With a Yod, you can never say if it’s ‘bad’ or ‘good’ – only that it’s sudden and will lead you to make decisions that will set you upon some new (or to revisit an old) curriculum of spiritual growth and evolution.

Take care, everyone

The Meaning of this Shift, and our Individual Call to Action: Healing the Divine Masculine

Blessings to all,

This video is less about specific astrological aspects as part of this ‘season of shifts’, and more about what these energies mean for us as individuals, and at the collective level. We are challenged at this time to re-define and heal our conception of the masculine, in ourselves, our relationships, our choices and our perceptions of the world at this time. This is the core message of this video – and is expressed through reference to astrological aspects. Key times for focusing intentions, and taking action towards creating a new (perception/manifestation) of reality based on values in alignment with a Heart-centric spiritual path are also presented.
