In this video we unpack the astrology of the second half of September 2018, looking at major transits significant configurations. As usual, we look at their personal and collective implications. We discuss politicized anger – signified by the ongoing series of Mars/Uranus squares – and we take a look at Chiron re-entering Pisces, examining some historical events to put things in context. We end by looking at the collective significance of Pluto going direct in Capricorn.
In this video I look at the major astrological transits of the outer planets in order to understand the energetic climate of the year. Beginning with an account of Jupiter’s movement into Scorpio in October 2017, we look at how this arc of energy continues into 2018. Scorpionic themes along the spectrum are energized and amplified in global awareness.
In this astrology forecast for 2018, we examine the major shift of energy as Saturn moved into Capricorn in December 2017, and how this conditions the global energetic climate. Saturn in Capricorn strongly emphasizes themes of personal responsibility, accountability and realism. In one sense, Saturn in Capricorn can provide the antidote to the less savoury tendencies of Neptune in Pisces – the tendency especially to avoid hard truths and escape reality. Neptune in Pisces will continue to be foggy waters in terms of media imagery, deception, falsity and escapism.
Some time ago, a friend reached out to me for a listening ear. He spoke of how misunderstood he felt as his worldview changed – he was undergoing a spiritual awakening. He began to voraciously read new literature, he found new friends who were exploring the same spiritual and political ideas he was, and much to the chagrin of his family, he felt increasingly alienated from his devoutly religious upbringing. I noticed how strikingly different he looked from the last time I saw him – it was as though his body morphed into a new one, mimicking his inner journey as his mind mutated to accommodate new philosophies and conceptions of reality.
(I should point out that this is quite typical of a spiritual awakening. Inner energetic shifts often result in striking physical/outward changes. New thought forms alter the frequency we broadcast, and because we are, as humans, bio-energetic beings, these new thought forms give new commands to our biological/physical systems. If you are going through an awakening process at the moment, you may find want to check out this page for some support).
Naturally, the first thing I did was ask him for his birth data. I cast his natal chart with his current transits, and there it was: transiting Pluto in Capricorn was closing in on an exact conjunction with his Ascendant, and was opposing his Cancer Mercury. And as if the action of transiting Pluto wasn’t enough, transiting Uranus was also closing in on an exact conjunction with his Aries I.C, and squaring his Moon. Big stuff.
