And so begins the slow build toward the eclipse. This is a HUGE day. One of the things making this eclipse and retrograde so powerful is the ways in which the celestial movement is participating in the picture that is assembling. There are planetary aspects every day this week and considering what we’re building to, the sheer number of aspects in the aggregate is astounding.
This is where the idea of Consciousness Astrology comes into play, as opposed to Event Astrology. In the later, one looks to the transits to wonder about what is going to happen on the outside of your life. In the former, the appreciation is for the magnificence of the inner experience. As we expand the Kingdom Within, we recognize that all else will be added unto us. And when the planets are active, our Consciousness is active.
This week, there is a major transit between Pluto and Chiron, and an even bigger one between Pluto and Uranus. Mars makes four different aspects; the Sun has six and the big player of the day, Mercury, logs in with seven different connections all in the next seven days. Put that in terms of your expanding Interior Landscape and this is a big week indeed.
The greatest planetary event is the Pluto Uranus Square that is exact for the fourth time since the middle of 2012. That transit hits on Friday, but has several activations that begin today. Firstly, the Moon will Sesqui-Square both Pluto and Uranus today, creating a shape in the heavens known as a Thor’s Hammer. Quite a moniker, no? Thor could initiate great change with one blow of his hammer and that image is quite apt for what we have all been going through.
Pluto and Uranus Squaring each other during this three year stretch is changing EVERYTHING and doing it quite dramatically. We are in the throes of one of those mutable moments this week and the Moon brings that up today in effect joining today to the eclipse energy of the coming weekend. The Moon will also Trine Venus today, making our ability to access our Hearts during what could otherwise be an agitated passage a little more, well, heart-centered. The amount of change in the air is unequivocal and absolutely unavoidable.
Pluto (Alchemy) will interact with Chiron (Healing) today in a Sextile (Productive and Creative). This is a very important transit and that it happens within a hair’s breadth of Friday’s Square is also very auspicious. That transit is hugely disruptive. This transit is enormously healing. Taken together, the wormhole we are in is hugely disruptive and enormously healing. I’ll take that, even if it means suffering some discomfort; the amount of expansion is worth any bit of discomfort that comes with it.
Both Mars and Venus interact with the North Node today – a Trine by Mars and a Semi-Square by Venus. Let me break this down for you by starting with the transited object, the North Node. Any time this point is aspected, it is our Future that is being activated, our very destiny. A Trine by Mars ensures that we are being enabled to embody (Mars connects to embodiment) the deepening of our spiritual practice. A Semi-Square from Venus gives us the subtle yet effective obstacle for growth needed to step into that embodiment in a fulsome way. Again, this is none-too-comfortable, but oh the benefits outweigh the discomfort by great proportion.
We are here doing mighty work right now and the Planet needs our help more than ever. We are creating Peace on Earth by attending to the conflict within our own Hearts. This is it; we are in the thick of it now. There is no turning back, so when the difficulty starts to get the better of you, turn to the tools you have been collecting along the way. You have them in your arsenal and you know how to use them. Use them readily and frequently. The mastery that comes from that level of practice is the new normal. To use prayer as an example; if you think turning to prayer once or twice a day was enough to lift you up, it may be time to turn to prayer once or twice an hour. Or more. The Mind is always going to be busy doing something; it may as well be doing something useful.
