Courage after the funk!

After the funk of last week’s eclipse energy, this is a week for movement, for making things happen.

The energy of the Grand Fire Trine is still active, with the Mars-Jupiter connection especially strong at the moment. This is enthusiastic, active, creative, inspirational kind of energy. It is the perfect time for actualizing change out of all those less than comfortable rumblings and stirrings of the eclipse. A time to grab your life goals and expand, be big, move forward, take chances. A time for courage.

But Mercury is still in retrograde, so don’t forget to study the details carefully before deciding which chances to go with … just because the opportunity for expansion is real, there’s no excuse to stuff it up with recklessness!

The next couple of days also see some nice little Venus aspects to the North Node, Mars, Jupiter and Mercury. This combination of aspects is a potent opportunity for clarity in relationship … there is an ease in connection and communication. And because the New Moon eclipse on the 24th October means that intensity in relationship is likely to amp up over the next two weeks, take advantage of this little hiatus of peace to express just what you want, believe, desire with self, partners … and everyone else.

Inspiring radical growth – Jupiter Trine Uranus

It has been said before that my astro posts seem to focus on the doom and gloom, the difficulties and challenges. And there’s some truth in that, I sort of figure that we’ll just flow with the good times, take the best of those energies without even having to know that that is what is going on. But when it comes to the more challenging stuff, it helps to be forewarned, to have some guidance in understanding and working through the trials and tribulations.

But today it’s different, today there’s an aspect that is all the good stuff … well, good stuff if you want excitement, creativity and change! Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion is just beginning a Trine aspect to Uranus, the planet of originality, freedom and unconventionality. This transit will be going in and out over the next six months, so if you’re in tune with it, expect this period to be the beginning of some radical but deliciously exciting evolution.

Jupiter is about truth, Uranus is about individuality. When these two work together we have an opportunity to unfold our own potential truth, and when this is going on for everyone, self-becoming and the manifesting of universal connection is possible.

The Trine is happening at the 15 degree point of Aries (Uranus) and Leo (Jupiter), so anyone who has any planets at these points will be being especially affected. And then, as other planets hit the 15 degree Sagittarius point, which Mars will do around about the time of the October Full Moon eclipse, we get a Grand Fire Trine and a massive burst of energy to power the inspirational and creative change of Jupiter and Uranus.

The fascinating thing is that this means Jupiter is hitting the last gasps of the Pluto-Uranus square , providing impetus for the transformation that this ‘evolve or evaporate’ energy is demanding of us on a personal, social and planetary level.

This is exciting astro stuff … anything that has been stuck in recent times has the chance to be shifted. Take notice of anything that is creating restlessness, because that’s the flag that will show what needs to change and the direction for growth.

And expect the world to be a different place. Everything is unfolding as it should!

The times they are a changin’

These few days of the start of April are powerful and transformative. The Zap Zone, as Mystic Medusa has so eloquently described it, is peaking. This really is evolve or evaporate time.

On April 1 (AEST), The Sun squared Jupiter, on April 2 it joined Uranus, and on April 3 it squares Pluto. The Jupiter aspect was an urge to grow, and being a square, maybe it had a bit of enthusiastic impatience to it, which might have played out as an over-confident push for freedom. Yesterday’s Uranus conjunct added a radical, dynamic, unpredictable energy … an expect the unexpectedness. Plans will have turned upside down, what we thought was safe suddenly disappeared, and what we thought was out of reach sat in our hands. And then when Sun squares Pluto tomorrow, explosive and unpredictable power struggles abound, with unconscious forces at odds with ego drives.

The energy of this week is demanding change … the choice is between clarifying and transforming or holding on and withering. And this energy is building up to the two eclipses we have this month and the Grand Cross of the 22nd of April.

As Bob said, ‘Get out of the new way if you can’t lend a hand, for the times they are a-changing” … interestingly, this is a song from the mid-60’s, when Uranus and Pluto were last conjunct. Now is time for us to take up the challenge of the revolution that began then, and to get this transformative change back on track …
