Ann Kreilkamp ~ From death throes to birth pains: Saturn/Pluto detonates cardinal structures

Some additional context from me (Laura) first:

I’ve been sensing chthonic, subconscious, magical, eruptive, primal, regenerative Pluto rooting around and doing something with my natal Saturn. I’ve also long felt that this January 2020 conjunction between Saturn and Pluto at 22-23 Capricorn would somehow be a “direct hit” on my chart. Until yesterday, the aspect eluded me, though. No “major” aspects get triggered, since my Saturn’s in Gemini, while Pluto’s in Capricorn.

Pluto (and Saturn) have been transiting my 5th house of pleasure/creativity/children/private relationships, and I’ve been getting loads of dream downloads and synchronicities about how my 5th house impacts my 10th house (career/public life), which includes my natal Sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn, in that order. The recent messages have been grinding and relentless (Pluto) — but also with a sense of fun/creativity (5th house) and everything getting upgraded (Saturn) and properly placed in proper timing (Saturn). With Saturn as Father Time and Pluto as Lord of the Underworld, precise synchronicities linked to my subconscious are really outdoing themselves!

As so often happens when an aspect I sense energetically goes exact, I discovered that transiting Pluto at 21 degrees 04′ Capricorn is currently inconjunct aka quincunx my 21 degrees 04′ Gemini Saturn. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction will occur within 1-2 degrees of my natal Saturn. In other words, my energetic sense was accurate. I just didn’t think to look at inconjunctions. Some astrologers consider this a major aspect, while most consider it minor. I would call it major for me at this time. It’s also an aspect concerned with integration. The signs involved have nothing in common but need to learn to work together — quite a metaphor for our political world right now! Continue reading

Powerful Full Moon in Aries, Plus Dreams and Art

I hadn’t planned to post on this Full Moon, but my dreams have been nagging me all day. Now, as I sit down to type, I find it’s 5:08 p.m. Eastern US time, exactly when the Full Moon hits 20 degrees 13 minutes Aries, opposing the Sun at 20 degrees 13 minutes Libra. The luminaries form a T-square with Pluto at 20 Capricorn, with Saturn adding to that T-square energy from its position at 14 degrees 26 minutes Capricorn. With the North Node at 12 degrees 36 minutes Cancer, we get even more tension, as Saturn has just crossed over the collective’s South Node. Jupiter in Sagittarius brings expansive and supportive energy, trining the Full Moon and sextiling the Sun.

From a collective standpoint, these energies urge us to rebalance karmic entanglements and find a more workable balance of Power To, rather than Power Over. What has already served its purpose and needs to change or go? What needs softening and deeper devotion? How do our emotions reflect our individual and collective identities? What are we re-birthing towards? What kind of tensions exist between self and other?

In my own chart(s), this Full Moon gets extra potent, because the Full Moon conjuncts my natal Chiron, opposing the Sun as it conjuncts my natal Uranus. For weeks, I’ve been having significant dreams related to 20 degrees Capricorn. One of these dreams — the morning that Pluto stationed direct over that 20 Cap spot — led me down a rabbit hole to find this 20 Cap significance stretches back over a decade, in symbolic and precognitive dreams and unusual real life connections.

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Fall Equinox 2019 features strong cardinal T-cross, setting in motion strong initiatives over the next three months

I had to post this piece by Ann Kreilkamp, since it goes so strongly with the NINE dead raccoons I commented about in the intro to my reblog of Tania Marie’s today. Even at five raccoons, I had received the message “end of all masks,” but nine really finalizes that sense. Nine signifies the end of a cycle, and this turn from Summer into the more interior Autumn also ends a cycle, while being part of a larger one. In her article, Ann says, “It may be that the title of Jonathan Franzen’s recent piece, in the New Yorker, is the most meaningful question we can ask.”

What If We Stopped Pretending

This theme keeps repeating itself in myriad ways. In any case, here’s Ann Kreilkamp sharing some insights about the astro-weather and significance of this Autumn Equinox.

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Fall Equinox 2019 features strong cardinal T-cross, setting in motion strong initiatives over the next three months

The Autumn Equinox occurs when the Sun hits 0°00 Libra, signalling that from now on, the nights will begin to grow longer than the days. They’ve been lengthening ever since Summer Solstice, three months ago, but only at Equinox are day and night equal.

Symbolically, we might think of this equinox time as a balancing act, between light and dark — within ourselves, and within our world. How much vile, long-standing corruption will continue to be exposed over these next three months? And yes, it will no doubt grow exponentially, until December 21, when, at the Winter Solstice, the Sun finally appears to stop, turn, and begin to grow longer than the night.

If you think back, on December 21, 2017, President Trump issued the Executive Order Blocking Property of Persons Involving Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption. 

What will come to light at this year’s Winter Solstice, two years, and one Mars cycle, later?

The coming darkness is inside us, remember. Whatever we see in the outer world, especially if it “triggers” us into hate or fear, is likely a projection, something within ourselves that we have thrown out into the world, and seek to blame, to judge, to eradicate. Always, when dealing with polarities of any kind, the key is balance, the alchemical integration of opposites within ourselves. In order to do that we must admit all those aspects of ourselves that we don’t like, or that we usually keep hidden, or in denied form. The key is to expand enough so that we may inhabit the space between any two polarities.

The 2019 Fall Equinox sports an unusually strong cardinal T-cross (at least three planets, two of them opposite, and one 90° from both poles): Moon/North Node at 14-15° Cancer opposite Saturn/South Node/Pluto at 13°, 14° and 20° Capricorn, square Mercury at 14° Libra. Plus, in Bloomington, where I live, the Ascendant is at 16° Leo, Jupiter at 17° Sagittarius, and Neptune at 16° Pisces, the three together creating what I call a “triangle of continuous growth,” and also configured with that T-cross. So, all in all, we have Moon/Nodes/Saturn/Pluto/Ascendant/Jupiter/Neptune, all needing to work together, within the 13°-20° degree area of their respective signs.

That the karmic, restructuring, death/rebirth Saturn/Pluto conjunction is involved is significant. And by the way, Greta Thunberg, poster girl of the Climate Strike movement,  time of birth unknown, has her Sun at 12° Capricorn, and Moon somewhere nearby. The Cult of Greta, whether or not she’s being used as a battering ram by forces beyond her understanding or control, may prove to be a phenomenon even bigger than we now realize as we head towards the finale of this every-35-year Saturn/Pluto process, the conjunction of these planets in January 2020.

That the Moon in Cancer, the sign of home and family, including the human family and our Mother Earth, is involved in the T-cross brings the emotions to bear upon the situation. And that Mercury is involved brings feelings to the surface, communicated through words. It may be that the title of Jonathan Franzen’s recent piece, in the New Yorker, is the most meaningful question we can ask.

What If We Stopped Pretending

Once again, during this fraught time of likely many forceful initiations, let me counsel balance: balance within and without. Balance above and below. Balance between thought and action, between dark and light. Between male and female, between me and you.

Timothy Glenn ~ Global Metamorphosis: A Timeline Overview

Yesterday morning, before this post came through from Timothy Glenn, in the space between sleep and wakefulness, I had a dream/vision of receiving a new article from Tim. Sure enough, I had received the “pre-email” article. The synchronicity tells me this one’s extra important and will prove prescient in coming years. You don’t need to understand all the complex astrology to get the overall message and overview of key themes and dates.

I became fast friends with Timothy Glenn way back in 2006. His playful humor, excellent teaching skills and collective overviews continue to hit the mark. Many thanks for the latest installment of Global Metamorphosis!

Global Metamorphosis: A Timeline Overview

by Timothy Glenn

Pluto spent the bulk of 2008 establishing its presence in the sign of Capricorn. From there, Pluto would spend more than a decade and a half undermining the world’s authoritarian systems, gradually setting them up for replacement. The original Global Metamorphosis article was even written before I started publishing online. Much has changed.

Pluto would not be doing a solo act during all this time, so interplay with other planets would color the planetary transformation. The ever dependable Saturn rules Capricorn and thus merits attention, along with our less than predictable friend Uranus. These disparate influences played significant roles in the Global Metamorphosis from 2012 through 2015.

Ann Kreilkamp~Do You Have Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and/or Capricorn?

Here’s an important astro- weather report from friend and astrology mentor Ann Kreilkamp. I’ve been noticing this trend in people’s lives, as well. The effects depend on how consciously each person chooses to work with the energies, but there’s no ignoring these transits if they aspect natal placements. Major changes are afoot in my life and in others affected by this ongoing inner and outer space dance.

I post astrology information not to make people feel powerless against Fate, but as a heads up for making the most of the current and upcoming energies. A weather report doesn’t guarantee torrential downpour and floods, but with 80% forecast rain you might enjoy life more with an umbrella — or choose activities benefited by rain, rather than sunbathing on the beach. As always, your mileage will vary depending on who and how you are. In any case, here’s Ann with some powerful insights about the energies in play:

Ann Kreilkamp~ Do You Have Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and/or Capricorn?

And are your cardinal planets located in or around the 18°-23° area of any of these four signs? If so, you’ve got furious, impulsive, action-oriented, no holds barred MARS, today [June 12th] at 17° of emotional Cancer, and moving about one degree every two days, either conjunct, square or opposed to that degree area of the zodiac NOW.

Why does this matter? Because we are in the midst of a long-running, and still forming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in that degree area of Capricorn. This zeitgeistian phenomenon, which joins Saturn, the planet of stern discipline and decision to Pluto, the planet of primal death and rebirth, occurs approximately every 35 or 36 years. It began to be felt this year in April and will go through about November of 2020, with the climax January 10th, 2020 when the two planets come to exact conjunction at 22° Capricorn. Since this conjunction involves the two most karmic planets, both inexorable, depth-charging Pluto and uncompromising, decisive Saturn, it’s always momentous for whomever, and whatever groups and institutions want to continue doing what they’re doing and find themselves thwarted, throttled, forced to CHANGE — especially when triggered by Mars!

Here’s a portion of the chart for RIGHT NOW, showing Mars (with Mercury and the north node) opposed to Saturn/Pluto (with the south node).

 

For example, my housemate Dan, tells me of a few friends of his who have recently started to experience panic attacks, on a daily basis. Furthermore, most of his friends, he says, are drinking way more beer than usual (self-medication). Continue reading

Global Metamorphosis 2019 Update

Another new article from Timothy Glenn! In his email to me, Tim notes, “2020 is going to be Global Metamorphosis on steroids, so there might be more than one update of this series during that year.” Meanwhile, 2019 promises to be quite the wild and revelatory ride. Here’s Tim with some cosmic perspective on human evolution and the New Earth:

Global Metamorphosis 2019 Update

by Timothy Glenn

The Global Metamorphosis articles focus on Pluto’s 16 year journey through Capricorn in the tropical zodiac, emphasizing two of the main facets of this phenomenon:

Removing and replacing structures of the old world control grid in all areas, including (but not limited to) Government, Economy, Academia, Religion and Science.

Bringing to light, facing and dealing with the reality of everything that has been deep, dark, hidden and secret for millenia (thus allowing the old control structures to remain operative).

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus in Taurus: Illusions Get Shattered

Timothy Glenn commented via email, “Of course volumes could be written about this… .” I agree, but I love his new article — just in time for tomorrow’s shift.

Uranus in Taurus: Illusions Get Shattered

by Timothy Glenn

We had our preview period for Uranus the Liberator transiting the sign of Taurus, from May 15 to November 6, 2018. He then retrograded back into Aries to tie up loose ends. Most earthlings have no clue about the war that has long been raging below the surface of public awareness, but Uranus in Aries forced a few key issues. Certain cabals had their death grip on the world broken.

However, there are many millions of us who not only can sense what is playing out on the world stage, but can recognize the clues and read the codes. The rest of the population will have the opportunity to catch up later.

And now is the time. On March 6, 2019 Uranus enters Taurus to play for keeps. You could batten down the hatches, buckle your seatbelt, or simply let go. The world will not be the same when Uranus begins its triple transit out of Taurus on July 7, 2025.
