Out of control forest fires. Out of control weather. Out of control debt. Out of control job losses. Out of control fiscal irresponsibility. Out of control lies and hypocrisy. Out of control delusions about national health care options. And the rumor is that the ever-smirky Cheney is going to run for president in 2012.
The June and July series of three eclipses in Cancer/Capricorn and Leo/ Aquarius has certainly stirred up a mess. But let's be truthful, we're just reaping what we've sown for at least the past 60 years. Ike warned us to watch out for the military-industrial complex and we citizens stayed asleep and let them take over. But it isn't too late to change things.
The September 4th Full Moon in Pisces highlights an ongoing cosmic pattern that might account for the tensions, and as we all know, full moons bring out our emotions. So watch your emotions and name your feelings about what's going on in your life and in our society. A named emotion turns into a feeling which determines our values. We need to live our values if we want to feel fulfilled in life.
The stage is set for the 3rd of five show-downs between Uranus in Pisces and Saturn in Virgo on September 15th. 3 is the number of creative process, forward movement, synthesis - the energy that has us discovering a new pattern, a new set of behaviors, new knowledge. Let's see what we do with these energies in the next few months.
Uranus and Saturn oppose (are opposite) each other every 40 years or so. These energies form a stand-off between the Old vs. the New. Uranus is the Awakener, the Rebel, the Individual who wants to make the world a better place, as well as symbolizing eccentric, rebellious and erratic energies. Saturn symbolizes the restraints of our world, the crystallized beliefs and rules of our society, as well as the fear and restraints those rules and beliefs impose on our spirits. But Saturn can also be discipline, structure, and responsibility. The last time these planets opposed each other was in the mid-60s, when Uranus (revolution), along with Pluto (evolution), was in Virgo and Saturn (the status quo) was in Pisces.
Now these planets have switched signs so they can re-energize the revolutionary energies of the 60s. In the 60s, Saturn in Pisces revealed the dead and deadening aspects of the patriarchy, while Uranus and Pluto in Virgo opened us to rebel against them. When these three planets line up, there is usually political, social, sexual, economic and artist revolution. GUESS WHAT? THEY'RE BACK!
Now we're really gaining speed as we race toward the big T-square of these three planets next year. The planets' relationship to each other (3 planets squaring each other) is similar to the energy of the first quarter moon -- a time when we have to overcome obstacles to make sure the ideals of the beginning of the cycle (the 60s) can manifest fully in another 40 years at the full moon part of the cycle.
Pisces is the sign of surrender to the Divine, of intuition and mysticism, of the collective unconscious. Now with Uranus in Pisces on the degrees that Saturn went over in the 60s, we are given the chance to open ourselves to the Divine energy that wants to be re-born here on Earth to replace a dead god and a dead ideology which has created world-wide destruction. Uranus wants to wake us up to our eternal truths, to our unique Self and to our spark of Divinity.
