A note on the astrology of current events....
I've been telling you to harness the power of the Venus Pluto conjunction plus Mars in Capricorn, as it is the beginning of a new cycle, as well as the coming Jupiter-Neptune conjunction April 12th in Pisces, which begins a new 16 year cycle and brings inspiration together with beliefs and optimism.
And it is true that we have the opportunity to tap into these aspects of this energy now through April - there is the seed of a solid new beginning with strong roots in the triple conjunction in Capricorn and the opportunity to tap into a higher vibe with Jupiter-Neptune and ground it into reality.
But collectively, we have larger cycles of transformation at play.
This current issue with Russia and Ukraine actually started last week while Mercury in Aquarius was square Uranus. This is the same exact aspect - the square from Aquarius to Uranus, the change-bringer, in Taurus, that was the main energy of all of 2021, with the three squares from Saturn in Aquarius to Uranus in Taurus (2/17, 6/14, and 2/25), and we are not done with that - we have a fourth square between Saturn and Uranus on for an entire month in September/October. And the 2nd half of 2022 is going to be bumpy for more reasons than that.
Right now, we have Pluto nearing the end of Capricorn. It entered in 2008 - that was marked by a recession. Pluto brings transformation through death and rebirth - it shakes foundations, exposes, and strips before it brings the new. This year, America is coming up on its Pluto return. Then over 2024/2025, Pluto will be making its transition to Aquarius, where it will be doing its thing for the coming 16 year transit.
Uranus is the change-bringer, and it does so through disruption, sudden upheaval, and out-of-the-blue insight - it causes breakdowns before it brings the breakthroughs. In Taurus it is bringing change to all things related to earth, environment, food sources, and how we feel secure and comfortable. Taurus is a sign of security and pleasure - Venus-ruled earth - so Uranus here is asking us (forcing us) to innovate our relationship to the material world and how we derive our sense of security in day to day life. Uranus will leave Taurus for Gemini to spend the next 7 years there in 2025.
Neptune is transiting its own sign of Pisces from 2011 to 2026. Neptune in transit wants to restore balance, but as with the other two, before that can happen, it brings collapse - Neptune dissolves. In Pisces it has to do with the natural world and wildlife/life, and especially waterways and oceans. It rules the immune system. Neptune in Pisces also has to do with oil. But its overarching message is about the connectedness of everything in this world, that we are all one.
Now consider that on top of ongoing squares from Aquarius (the air sign of the collective, humanitarianism, the future, innovation, technology, and circulation) to Uranus in Taurus, at the moment we have Mars approaching Pluto near the final degrees of Capricorn, the sign of governmental and financial systems.
Mars and Pluto are volatile. This is the warrior and the lord of the underworld coming together. Power plays are not a surprise. The saving grace here might just be Venus in the mix, who already has a relationship going with Pluto from her first two conjunctions in December. The one coming on Friday 3/4 (with Mars traveling with Venus) is the third and final one, bringing resolution. The thing here is that Venus is the one in the middle. Venus made the first two conjunctions with Pluto in December before Mars got in the mix. Now Mars is traveling with Venus through Capricorn and then on past Pluto into Aquarius (mid-February through mid-March) - we can think of Mars being Venus' guest here that doesn't get along with Pluto.
At the same time, Jupiter is approaching Neptune for a 4/12 conjunction that begins a new 16 year cycle in Pisces. The upcoming 3/2 Pisces new moon with Jupiter is a prelude. Jupiter is a gift-bringer, a planet of protection and luck, but it is also a planet of growth and expansion, and it "blows up" whatever it gets close to. Jupiter wants more. This transit can very well be escalating the situation, and oil/natural resources could be a main motivator (Neptune in Pisces), as well as power (Pluto).
Mars Pluto always has the potential to get ugly. Jupiter always has the potential to make everything bigger.
However, next week's 3/2 Pisces new moon sitting with Jupiter (also a benefic and protector) and then Venus (the other benefic) in the middle of the Mars-Pluto issue on Friday 3/4 may be bringing blessings.
As always, the most important thing we can do for ourselves and the collective at any time is to stay aligned with a bright future that serves the highest good of all.
We cannot do that if we are letting what shows up in front of us on the news dictate our vibe - choose your vibe according to what you wish to create - don't let it be dictated by whatever might happen around you.
Be the leader energetically.
