The background matrix of revolution (Uranus) and evolution (Pluto) are now connected with Jupiter in Cancer, drawing in the need to shift our cultural paradigm to meet the needs of the people rather than the economy. As Jupiter's energy of possibilities engages those two planets, Saturn is in Taurus' opposite sign of Scorpio, ready and willing to transform (being joined with the Moon's North Node pointing to our collective destiny) the way we value money.
The Cosmos is with Us! Evolution happens.
The Personal Planets
Personal planets symbolize how we experience our life amidst these larger cosmic and social energies--our personal take on life. The personal planets are the Sun , our sense of self-identity and the aspect of life we're learning about this lifetime; the Moon , our unconscious, our inner sense of ourselves, our emotional body; Mercury , the way we use our Minds; Venus , our emotional connection to ourselves, to others and to Spirit; Mars , the way we take on the challenges of life and act on our desires. As the personal planets move faster than the larger planets, they pick up the archetypal energies of change as they move around the zodiac, bringing these energies into our psyches to either enlarge our sense of ourselves or scare us into shutting down on our own growth.
At this Harvest Full Moon, the Sun in Virgo is honing our sense of who we are; the Moon in Pisces opens us to our imaginations and to our spiritual Self.
Mercury is Libra, engaging with Uranus/ Pluto/Jupiter and forming a grand cardinal cross, opening our Minds to find fair and honorable ways to work on changing the system.
Venus in Scorpio makes a conjunction with Saturn and the Scorpio North Node right before this full Moon, helping us let go of judgments we have about ourselves and others which no longer serve our emotional health. With Venus to connect us with our inner wounds and Saturn to re-structure our emotional energies once we allow ourselves to heal, we have a good chance of making big changes in our personal and collective lives.
Mars in Leo can be bossy, but brave. The archetype of the warrior stands at the crossroads between the old and the new, having to choose what he will support. Venus, his archetypal mate, calls him to support the transformation in our value system and in our emotional bodies. Mars is supported by Uranus, so he'll welcome the new and untried.
With Pluto finally turning to direct motion on September 20th, we can expect more revelations about how the old system of patriarchy is failing us. Let yourself be motivated by your heart, not your fears. What kind of society do you want to live in?
The Sabian symbol for Pluto turning direct at 9* Capricorn is: An angel carrying a harp. This implies getting in tune with cosmic energies. Angels are spiritual messengers, and when one brings us a message in music, we need to dance it into our being.
To a blessed harvest and a beautiful Autumn!
