Oct 16 2009

Moon in Libra in search of balance starts off the day conjunct Venus and square Pluto, and finishes up the day conjunct Mercury. Even though Moon/Venus is one of the nicer transit around, Moon is really still lighting up the Pluto T-square, so be careful, be good to each other. Later in the day, Moon pulls away from the Pluto T-square, and conjunct Mercury, suggests a melding of intellect and feeling --- great for poetry, but lousy for clear lucid communication. The Sun is finishing it's sweep trine of the Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune and is inconjunct Uranus/Juno, so we may be feeling good in spite of the upheavals , but still feel WTF about what to do.
Although it may be tempting to "force fit" rather than allow today, it would be good to take the higher, deeper path of intuition; rather than stick to the illusionary structure the familiar "law and order" or dogmatic mindset.

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.
