Sept 10 2009

The Sun is well within the orb of Saturn, both inconjunct the Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune trio. Uncertainty would be a theme added to upheaval. Moon starts off the day Void of Course, then enters Gemini at 9:17 am PDT. A case of the Mondays on Thursday, but only for the early morning. Moon will be trine/sextile the north/south node axis today, adding a good sense of grounding/place/agility to whatever else is happening, including Moon inconjunct Pluto which could be a bit off-putting. Back on the upside, Moon with Vesta will be making a half star of David with the Sun/Saturn/Mercury oposite Uranus/Juno axis. Moon will be sextile Juno exact at 10:56 am PDT, trine Mercury exact at 6: 50 pm PDT sextile Vesta exact at 7:07 am PDT. Ego may be off kilter, but feelings may be surprisingly ok --- a sense of self, self value, may be in the limelight today. Just remember one cannot buy one's way to self with shiny things, no matter how much fun it may seem at the time.

A repeat of some long term better news beyond the next year or so of upheaval associated with the Pluto/Saturn/Uranus T-square: after that we are into a similar set of transits to the Renaissance with an added twist. Beyond minstrels with funny clothes and an excuse to be bawdy there is a truly rare opportunity for the group or social consciousness to take the proverbial quantum leap. Hopefully not off a cliff, but spiritual awakening to borrow a cliche; or an expansion of awareness of the obvious that was previously occulted or ignored, or just not on the radar. By 2013, Saturn will be passing away from square Pluto and opposite Uranus, leaving Pluto square Uranus and sextile Neptune along with a passing Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus grand trine---the Renaissance transits. Pluto sextile Neptune correlates with deep, spiritual awakenings, Pluto square Uranus correlates with deep shift, innovation. The twist is that this time Chiron is close to Neptune, actually leading the way sextile Pluto. This would imply that lessons from woundings, traumas have a chance to be actually learned, integrated and even transcended. By 2014, Saturn will be inconjunct Uranus, but sextile Pluto, and trine Chiron, implying the possibility of the old "powers that be" having nothing to grip on to, while the upheaval/change/shift that has been brewing will have footing/grounding. After that, more stuff happens of course. By 2016, with Pluto still sextile Neptune, Saturn will be square Neptune, with a passing Jupiter opposite Neptune and Square Saturn, which would imply more taboos being revealed for what they are; a possibility of group empowerment through direct spiritual experiences. If we can hold it together, not a festering crooked broken system in the form of business as usual; but that which is truly of value in a higher expression of being Human: life, love, community, family---coherence and connections with constructive creative expression---then we are in for a good time, messy as it may seem when going through the birthing process into the seemingly unknown.
