Today is the day …

… the culmination of three years of a radically forceful energy of change. Today is the last Pluto-Uranus square, an energy that we won’t experience anything like for another 40 years.

For those sensitive to this energy, the last few days have probably been bringing to our awareness the places where we still have attachments going on that are holding us back. Today is the day to let go.

Recognise the places of discomfort, honour the gifts that are being shown and let go of that which no longer serves….

It’s time ….

This really is an intense and powerful time. We are in the last vestiges of the Pluto-Uranus square, the defining astrological aspect of the last three years, and what has to be rated as amongst the most powerful astrological phenomena of the last 40 years. As I’ve mentioned plenty of times, Mystic Medusa defines this time as the Zap Zone, and calls it the ‘Evolve or Evaporate’ energy. I’m with her. (see my past posts on this square…).

evolve or evaporate

We get the final hit of this square next Tuesday (17th March, AEST), the seventh since the aspect first asserted its influence in 2012. And between now and then, Mars is tightly wrapped up in the energy, giving it the assertive and powerful drive that Mars bestows on anything it touches. This is the shove we need to make the changes that the Pluto-Uranus square is demanding of us. If we look at what has been going on for since 2012, there will be a pattern of fears and blockages that have been challenged, now is the time to leave aside old attachments and self-delusions, to open to a new experience of power, freedom and love.

How I’m experiencing the energy of the last few weeks is that it is like a probe that is going into the deepest, darkest parts of my soul, bringing up the bits that are hiding in the murky waters, showing me where there is any left over attachments to my old self perceptions. I might be in a seeming innocuous conversation with a friend, and all of a sudden something is triggered, taking me to an emotional experience that is far deeper than what appears to be on the surface. This is the mirror, and it is asking me to confront the places that I still need to let go. Where am I still holding onto an idea that life and love is meant to look a certain way? Where are my fears denying me freedom? It is deep stuff, and it is happening for all of us, personally, socially, politically and spiritually. It’s even happening for the planet … watch for earthquakes, volcanoes, storms and the like over the next few weeks, as this powerful, magnetic energy creates ructions in the material universe.

With so much Mars energy around at the moment, there is likely to be a bit of anger, competitiveness and chest-beating going on this week, especially amongst those who are not in tune with the idea that the challenge is meant to be an internal one.  Be cautious of those who are acting out.

The following few weeks after this last square are going to bring in a pair of formidable eclipses, so there will be a bit of discomfort going on around us. Make allowances for that, but don’t miss the value of the opportunity. This really is a time for evolution, for opening to a new experience of power, freedom and love.

The Blood Moon – Lunar eclipse, October 2014

So, the eclipse season is on us … and I’m guessing that people are already feeling the intensity.

blood moon

A Lunar eclipse happens on a Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are exactly opposite and in parallel, and the shadow of the Earth falls on the Moon, causing what is called a Blood Moon. This will be at 8.50pm Wednesday night (AEDT). Astrologically, the suggestion is that this is a time when emotions (Moon) are in hidden (shadowed), we are disconnected from our feelings. So, we can feel out of sorts and act out of character. And when you get that happening to everyone at the same time, weirdness ensues!

This full Moon is in Aries, with the Sun in Libra. The Aries-Libra polarity suggests that in general, the disconnection is likely to play out in the realm of relationships, having something to do with the balance of individuality and partnership. Maybe struggles for freedom, or one person wanting more connection while the other wants more independence.

Also look for the 15 degrees Aries-Libra point in your own chart, as this will indicate where it will hit personally. If you’re not familiar with your chart, this is a good website to use, so you can find out what part of your own life the eclipse will be affecting …

But that’s just the Blood Moon, it gets far more complex. The eclipse happens with the Sun exactly on Uranus, which suggests that there will be a tendency for radical upheaval. Uranus wants us to break free in order to become our true selves. But it does this with little concern for consequences. So, over the next few days, any hint of a rut that we might be in is going to be shown to us, and we will want to run. Take the message, but throw in a little dash of caution before taking the action; with Uranus and Pluto in play, the chance of leaving utter destruction in our wake is high … and maybe not everything needed to be discarded. Or maybe it did, and if so, then the next few days, with the sparkling power of the Mars-Jupiter-Uranus Grand Fire Trine, are perfect for a psyche clear out!

But wait, that’s not all!! On Thursday (AEDT) Venus squares to Pluto, suggesting intense passions, but with a hidden agenda. Jealousy and possessiveness are high, in direct proportion to fear of losing partnership or the need to control. One way to deal with this is to bring the hidden stuff to the surface, if not, the risk is Pluto doing its destructive stuff. But even this has its own risks with the upheaval of this week.

So, put all that together … intense passions that threaten to destroy intimacy, disconnection between self and feeling, and an uncontrollable urge to break free of restrictions!! And all this while Mercury is retrograde and our capacity for effective communication is challenged. Sure, act on it if that’s what you want, but take a deep breath (or ten) first, and make sure you stop to listen to what is really going on. And remember that this is happening for everyone, so allow a little compassion, and don’t get sucked into someone else’s drama.
