This Solstice season, with the lunar nodes creating eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn, we have an opportunity to release old karma and to understand the lessons involved. Now it's time to leave the past behind and write that new story. Create your life live a creative life!
So let's look at where this cycle began back in December of 2018.
At Winter Solstice last December, the Sun entered Capricorn , already made powerful and heavy by the presence of Saturn, Pluto and the Lunar South Node there. The necessity of societal change put pressure on the new Light to take us deeper and wider than we've ever gone before. The world literally rests in our hands and now we see what's at stake if we don't act.
Society is just a construct, like a corporation thinking it has personhood. Every society has its own rules and beliefs. Ours is called patriarchy, but other societies has had different rules and beliefs. We can change constructs. We don't have to live in a society that values greed, materialism and power over Spirit, people and the Earth. It's our choice. What we can't change is the fact that we're destroying our own world and killing our children's future. Unless we take it upon ourselves to change and bring change to the world.
The other energy pattern in the Winter Solstice chart was a T-Square between the Gemini Moon, Mercury and Jupiter conjunct in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter and Neptune opened us to new spiritual possibilities and a larger, deeper imagination, while Mercury and the Gemini Moon contained the capacities to see the truth and to communicate what these new perspectives might entail. What was your true Solstice wish? What did you find yourself desiring?
Venus was busy with Ceres in Scorpio resurrecting a deep nurturing spirit in us while Mars in Pisces was grappling with his wounded warrior spirit. They asked us, What is important enough to us to stand up for, to fight for, to work for?
The next shift came at Spring Equinox , when the 0* Aries Sun was conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer and Mentor of Heroes. We were called to see our wounds to understand who we are. Hopefully, we began to listen even more intently to our imagination and intuitions ( Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces) while we worked with its Virgo Moon to understand how to manifest what we are called to do (grand trine with Mars in Taurus, Moon in Virgo and SN, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn ). If we let go of our old story, our old karma, could we find ways to manifest the New Story, for ourselves and our culture?
Venus in Aquarius challenged Mars in Taurus to stand up for everyone, everywhere. We can see it happening in the world. People are standing up. Children are standing up. So the new Winter Solstice seeds took root. We have to boldly stand up for our beliefs if we want to change things. And we have to do it together.
Now, at Summer Solstice with the Sun at 0* Cancer, we are getting ready to incarnate our soul's essence in a whole new way. We must name our desires and hopes and stand up for what's important in life.
Neptune stations retrograde an hour before the Solstice, so its power is especially potent. As Neptune turns within, our focus will be on the inner world of our soul, the world of the creative imagination. What do you really want to imagine into being?
Neptune in Pisces has been a major player this year, working with Pluto, Saturn and the South Node in Capricorn to help us dissolve old karma by offering us a more spiritual, meaningful paradigm to live by. Neptune awakens us to the timeless place of beginnings and asks us to operate in Kairos time (timeless) as well as Chronos time (3D time). Bring the spiritual vision into our everyday life.
Neptune has also been squaring Jupiter retrograde all year, dissolving what is false in us and in the world. Neptune' s spiritual imagination is inspiring Mars and Mercury conjunct in Cancer now, so we feel and know ( Mercury ) what we need to do to nurture life, while Mars, the spiritual warrior, is ready to stand up for it.
