Two Important Conjunctions: A Look Down the Road

Carl Boudreau – April 13, 2018

Saturn Conjoins Pluto, Jupiter Conjoins Vega, etc.

Many of us are aware and some of us are concerned because we know the next several

years will bring major shifts of astrological energy causing increasing turmoil in an

already troubled world. Among the most prominent of coming astrological changes are these:

  1. Uranus will soon begin exploring Taurus. The Uranus Taurus ingress begins in May2018 and will be complete in March of 2019.  Jupiter will conjoin the Galactic Center in its home sign of Sagittarius in November 1919.  Saturn, already in Capricorn, its home sign, will conjoin Pluto in Capricorn in January of 2020.  Jupiter in Capricorn will conjoin the fixed star Vega in February of 2020.  Saturn and Pluto are moving toward their Aquarius ingresses. Saturn will enter Aquarius in 2020; Pluto will do so in 2023-24.Neptune is edging toward its transition into Aries (2025).
  2. The North Node will enter Cancer for the full transit this November. The Moon’s Nodes, too, will straddle the highly charged, highly sensitive Cancer/Capricorn axis.

Taken separately, all of the above astrological events are changeful. Combined, they are

overwhelmingly changeful. So we are looking at a continuing stream of new change

energies.

And they will all be coming within a relatively brief period of time.

Some of these, especially the Neptune Aries ingress, do seem a little far off.

They are closer than we think, though. Some of these energies, especially the Saturn, Pluto

and Uranus energies, seem to be swirling about us already. Conditions are extremely fluid,

volatile. Indeed, present turmoil is easier to understand when we assume that some of

these new change energies are already affecting us.

Nowadays, astrological process seems to have sped up. No sooner does a planetary event

show up on the Astrological horizon than one senses its effects. It seems to me, in short,

at least some of the astrological events listed – above, the Uranus events in particular –

are already telegraphing highly changeful, transformative energies.

So we are effectively awash with change energies. Some are the continuing effects of past

change aspects. Some are previews and foreshadowings of aspects yet to come. They

make up a kind of stew. As a practical matter, it is difficult to distinguish between the

various change energies we are encountering.

 

Economic and Political Change and Emerging Leadership

This post will focus on two of the energetic shifts I listed above – the Saturn/Pluto

conjunction of January 2020 and the Jupiter/Vega conjunction of February 2020. These

conjunctions will occur less than a month apart and they should be considered together.

 

Saturn/Pluto, A One-Two Punch

The first of the change energies I want to discuss is the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of

January 2020.  It will contribute further to the dissolution of Economic and Political

patterns we have been trying unsuccessfully to release since Pluto first entered Capricorn.

Pluto entered Capricorn with a bang in 2008. I believe the Saturn/Pluto conjunction will

mark a climax of political and economic change. Many alert observers have been

anticipating this Saturn/Pluto conjunction since then.

There has never been much doubt that the Saturn/Pluto conjunction will be a high energy

contact. Each planet is powerful. Each in its own way, taken by itself, is an all but

irresistible driver of change.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction will bring irresistible transformative, corrective force to

bear on flawed patterns of thought and behavior in high places. Conjunct in Capricorn,

Saturn and Pluto will reduce the possibility of resisting change to zero.

Saturn powerfully motivates change. It brings relentless pressure, flawless logic and

hard evidence to bear on problematic situations. It reveals the existence and the cost of

error in unmistakable and compelling ways. It makes errors and their cost obvious, and

burdensome.

Basically, Saturn compels change by heightening awareness of the fatigue, inconvenience, discomfort and outright pain of flawed patterns of thought and behavior.  Pluto shines a bright, penetrating light. It exposes hidden defects, often dramatically. Under Pluto’s energy, flawed, improper patterns are highlighted in unfortunate ways and blown apart.

Pluto brings irresistible force to bear. It shines a penetrating, transformative light. It exposes concealed errors, thrusting them urgently to the fore. Pluto also drives us urgently to correct these defects.

Between them, Saturn and Pluto make it impossible to conceal, ignore, disguise or conceal

defective patterns. This Saturn/Pluto conjunction, then, will finally expose and at least

partially blow up bad patterns that have so far successfully resisted the forces of change.

The upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction will take place in Capricorn. Thus, it will expose

and force the transformation of flawed governmental, administrative and managerial practices that have lasted despite the near constant flow of change energies.

The combination of Saturn and Pluto energy in Capricorn will change seemingly

unchangeable patterns. In fact, so far, very little in the way of patterns, habits or tradition

seem to be surviving Pluto’s transit of Capricorn.

The powerful transformative influence of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in

Capricorn will bring potentially dramatic change. This Saturn/Pluto conjunction will occur

only once, in January of 2020.  Flawed, but stubborn, permanent-seeming patterns will

either be further weakened, finally rectified or eliminated. Long-standing, permanent-

seeming practices could be ended.

 

Pluto, Saturn and the Cancer/Capricorn Axis

Pluto governs the expression of power. Saturn governs legislation and legislative process.

More generally, it governs the exercise of authority on the governmental, administrative

and managerial level. Saturn also governs the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is also about the

exercise of power and authority.

Thus, Saturn, Pluto and the sign of Capricorn are all central to the exercise of power on all

levels. We should expect a Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn to dramatically affect

governmental, administrative, managerial and legislative process and the full range of

existing political and economic patterns.

To help us more fully appreciate the power and the importance of this conjunction,

however, we should take a brief look at the history of Pluto with respect to the

Cancer/Capricorn axis.

History suggests that Pluto and the Cancer/Capricorn axis enjoy a very special relationship:

in the modern era, at least, when Pluto affects the Cancer/Capricorn axis, tremendous

transformative power has been released.

It looks to me that the economically and politically transformative power of the upcoming

conjunction might not derive so much from the fact that Pluto and Saturn are conjoining as

from the fact that Pluto is on the Capricorn/Cancer axis.

Pluto’s last transit of Capricorn was a fateful time in global history. Pluto last transited

Capricorn between 1762 and 1777 then it went into Aquarius. Oddly, as it left Capricorn,

Pluto actually went over the cusp of Aquarius five times before it settled in for the full

transit

in 1778. Interestingly, this time around, Pluto will also go over the cusp of Aquarius five times before it settles in for the full transit in 2024.

Pluto’s late 18th century transit of Aquarius ushered in at least a century of political and

economic revolution. First were the US and French revolutions of 1776 and 1789

respectively.

More revolutions followed in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Institutions that had been in place for centuries, some rooted in the most ancient past,

disappeared, or faded into the background of our collective lives. For example, in most cases, monarchy and all the customs and institutions associated with it were rendered quaint relics of bygone times.

More recently, Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008, directly affecting the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

Pluto will remain in Capricorn until 2023-24.

This Pluto Capricorn transit brought global political and economic crisis and

transformation with it, also. For example, the Pluto Capricorn ingress of 2008 correlated

closely with the onset of a severe global financial crisis. Political transformations followed.

My theory relates to the placement of Sirius. I think the power of Pluto and/or Saturn on the Cancer/Capricorn axis is related to the placement of Sirius in Cancer. Sirius is a powerful and powerfully spiritual fixed star, probably the most powerful and spiritual of the fixed stars located in Cancer.

Pluto is associated strongly with worldly power. Saturn is strongly associated with worldly

order and authority. Sirius is strongly associated with divine power. Sirius is at about 13o

21’ Cancer.

Whenever Saturn and/or Pluto connected with the Cancer/Capricorn axis they would also

connect with the pure spiritual values represented by Sirius. These great Spiritual powers

would collide with the imperfect worldly power and authority represented by Saturn and

Pluto. Or we could think of it in terms of colliding, conflicting patterns. However we think

of it, when any of these great powers connect there would inevitably be a correspondingly

strong release of transformative worldly and transformative spiritual energy.

 

Saturn on the Cancer/Capricorn Axis

But, as I indicated above, it isn’t necessary for Saturn and Pluto to conjoin in Capricorn to

produce dramatic results. Saturn can also correlate with dramatic events when it touches

the Cancer Capricorn axis. Let’s consider a couple of the more dramatic examples.

Saturn transitioned into in Capricorn during 1929 and transition out in 1932. This

corresponded with the stock market crash of 1929 and the early years of the Great

Depression.

Saturn entered Cancer in 1944 and remained in Cancer until 1946. This corresponded with

the first use of the atomic bomb, the end of World War II and the beginning of the highly

transformative, post war era.

 

Saturn/Pluto Conjunctions in Capricorn: The Triple Whammy

As for Saturn/Pluto conjunctions in Capricorn as such, there has not been a Saturn/Pluto

conjunction in Capricorn since the early 1500s. Before that, there was a Saturn/Pluto

conjunction in Capricorn in the late 1200s.

Neither of these two dates seem to me to offer an opportunity for useful historical

comparison. They are too distant in time. Their context is no longer familiar or meaningful to

  1. (I think the most useful analogy we have is a Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Cancer at the outset of World War I.

This most recent Saturn/Pluto conjunction occurred on the Cancer/Capricorn axis near the

beginning of the first world war, (1914-1915). This Saturn/Pluto conjunction affected the

Cancer/Capricorn axis and it did so with dramatic consequences.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Cancer of 1914-15 was exact three times, the first time in

the summer of 1914. As noted, it correlated very closely with the outbreak of World War I,

which ignited in the summer of 1914.

 

The Pluto Capricorn ingress of 2008 speaks again to the power of Pluto on the

Cancer/Capricorn axis.

The 2008 Pluto Capricorn ingress correlated strongly with the near global economic

collapse triggered by the so-called subprime mortgage crisis. It badly rattled global political

and economic structures.

Given the above, I think we can reasonably expect the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction

in Capricorn to produce significant political and economic change. All three elements will be involved: Saturn, Pluto and the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn is a powerful astrological detonation in a place

crucial to the exercise of power at all levels. It is not just about the exercise of power, either,

but about the evolution of the manner in which power is exercised going forward.

 

Mitigating the Destructive Power of the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction of 2020

We need to think carefully about the relative power of this conjunction and its likely effects,

however. I think there is reason to believe that this Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn

will not be as destructive as the text books and some historical comparisons might suggest.

There is certainly no denying the power of the Cancer/Capricorn axis or the disruptions

that Pluto and Saturn can cause when they touch it. However, there are also important,

relevant reasons to discount the potentially destructive or oppressive potential of the

upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.

The power of Pluto is actually impaired and will remain so into the indefinite future. Pluto

will face continuing challenges to the expression of its energies.

Those in positions of power will have continuing difficulties in exercising power. Indeed,

the planetary patterns seem to be disempowering the powerful.

In fact, it seems to me that Pluto and Saturn energies are combining in ways that make it

difficult to express either energy effectively. Those in power will find it difficult to exercise

their authority (Saturn) or impose their will (Pluto).

 

Instability and the Impairment of Pluto’s Power

Those who currently exercise power have a lot on their plates, then. And many of the issues

they face, much of the instability they face, was triggered by Pluto itself.

This continuing instability complicates events. These complications make it harder for

those in power to exercise power – to control events or to move toward their goals in a

straightforward way.

A lot of things pretty much blew up as a result of the Pluto Capricorn ingress of 2008, most

notably, perhaps the global economy. Whatever else it might have done, this global

economic crisis and its knock on effects presented those trying to exercise power with

serious challenges.

 

The exact Uranus/Pluto squares of 2012-2015 had similar effects. I have in mind the so-

called “Arab Spring.” It contributed greatly to political instability and, in so doing, made it

hard for those in power to exercise power.

The upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction and its run-up are likely to do the same kind of

thing. They will push stubborn political and economic conflicts to a head. That will cause

even more instability. This increased instability will make it harder for those in power to

impose their will.

 

Weaker Pluto, Stronger Saturn and Dominant Uranus

But Pluto’s power is also being weakened on a strictly energetic level. With the exercise of

Pluto’s power being impaired, Saturn’s power to dampen and suppress will come to the fore.

With a weakened Pluto and a strengthened Saturn, the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of 2020

could be something of a dud in comparison to previous, comparable aspects. But this

conjunction might still be strong enough to help us overcome defective patterns that have

so far resisted change. It might be more helpful to depend on Saturn’s careful scrutiny than

Pluto’s explosive power to achieve stable, long-term change.

After the Saturn/pluto conjunction, Pluto will move toward its 2023-24 Aquarius ingress.

Pluto falls in Aquarius. It’s energies don’t express well there. This will weaken Pluto’s

influence generally and weaken but especially in relation to Uranus.

 

Uranus in Taurus, will be in broad, square relationship to Pluto in Aquarius. Uranus is the

ruler of Aquarius. So this broad square, too, will likely weaken Pluto and strengthen

Uranus.

It continues to appear that we are headed into a highly Uranian era, strongly supportive of

resistance, protest and reform, unfriendly to the exercise of power.

It is in fact getting increasingly difficult to exercise power. Protest, reform, resistance and

revolt are on the rise, demonstrably.

Uranus will be in Taurus until 2025-26, at which point it moves into Gemini, creating a

whole new energetic reality. But with the energetic shifts we are now looking at, it’s hard to

imagine what the world will look like by the time Uranus moves into Gemini.

I tried to clarify the long term, relative increase in Uranian influence in a recent post:

Uranus Comes out of Shadow. Uranian forces of protest, reform and resistance will steadily

gain in influence. The ability of existing powers to suppress increasingly frequent

manifestations of Uranian energy will decrease.

 

The 2020 Saturn/Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn, in Perspective

I have talked about the intense power of Saturn/Pluto conjunctions and the

Cancer/Capricorn axis. We can safely assume that the 2020 conjunction will be especially

intense because it is taking place on the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

The energy of the Cancer/Capricorn axis and its significance will both be greater because

the Moon’s Nodes will be on the Cancer/Capricorn axis when it occurs. Spiritual forces, as

represented by Sirius in Cancer, will possess the compelling power of moral force. This

moral force will oppose any temptations to the abuse of power that arise from the

Saturn/Pluto conjunction.

Thus, in principle, the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction could produce catastrophic

effects. It could, in principle, blast any defective patterns that linger in collective

consciousness to smithereens.

It is clear, though, that Pluto’s power will be lessened by the factors mentioned above. We

cannot guarantee that the Saturn/Pluto conjunction will reform or eliminate these patterns.

But in my estimation, the power of this conjunction, though muted, is likely to significantly

affect these patterns. It will doubtless further soften these defective and stubborn patterns.

That will make it easier for the increasingly prominent change energies of Uranus to affect

them.

However, more change energy, specifically Uranian change energy, is definitely on the way.

Much that has remained stubbornly part of our lives will be shaken. It might even finally

disappear. Its hold on our collective minds and hearts will be significantly weakened.

Jupiter and the Question of Political and Economic Leadership:

Jupiter Conjoins Vega

Finally, I said this post was about the emergence of political and economic leadership

adequate to the challenges of coming years.

The fixed star Vega is in the middle of tropical Capricorn. It is associated with the charisma

possessed by people in positions of power. The Jupiter/Vega conjunction bespeaks the

emergence of inspired, enlightening and uplifting leadership.

(Interestingly, Vega at 15o 35 minutes Capricorn is closely opposed to Sirius at 14o21’

Cancer.

Also interesting, Jupiter will conjoin the Galactic Center in November 1919, before it enters

Capricorn. There are powerful energies at play in all of this.)

Jupiter will conjoin Vega for the first and only time on February 10, 2020 UT. Saturn will

conjoin Pluto for the first and only time one month earlier, on January 12, 2020 UT. New

leadership will emerge as the Saturn/Pluto change energies are peaking. Both conjunctions

will be exact only once.

For all practical purposes, then, that makes the two events simultaneous. Also, I believe

their effects will dovetail. As change energies continue to build and turbulence grows new

leadership will emerge. New leadership will emerge definitively during a peak in political

and economic turbulence.

I discussed the effects of the fixed star, Vega in recent posts (1), (2), I wrote, for example,

about Pluto’s conjunction with Vega over the course of 2016. Pluto basically hovered over

Vega in the course of 2016. It accentuated the charisma of those already in power

introducing an imbalance, or bias, in the 2016 US election, impeding political change.

Pluto conjunct Vega gave pro-oligarchic forces an advantage by intensifying and

exaggerating the charisma of pro-oligarchic figures already in power. This compensated for

(neutralized) growing anti-oligarchic sentiment in the electorate.

 

I also wrote about how Saturn’s pending conjunction with Vega (over the course of 2019)

will mark a turning point in politics. In contrast with Pluto’s effect on Vega, Saturn’s

conjunction with Vega will suppress the charisma of existing governing figures. This will

support a more objective, critical attitude toward political leaders. How this plays out will

depend on who’s in power in 2019.

 

In Closing . . .

We are living in the wake of numerous changeful aspects. We have already seen a great deal

of change. It has been inwardly and outwardly turbulent. More changeful aspects are

appearing on the horizon, telegraphing their energies. Events are already foreshadowing

these energetic shifts.

As the wake of previous change energies blend with waves of oncoming change energies, we

are likely to see an even faster rate of even more turbulent change.

Astrology Status for February 2015

Astrology Status for February 2015

February 2, 2015 at 4:11pm

Carl Boudreau

The Terms of Endearment – a Rewrite

Nessus and Chiron in Pisces are on the midheaven; Ixion, Ceres, Pholus and Quaoar are in Sagittarius in the 6th house. The North Node is in Libra in the 4th house.

There is a profoundly transformative emphasis on relationships in the Saturn Sagittarius ingress chart (http://on.fb.me/1D0oaMF). A large group of bodies are spread through the 6th and 7th houses, across the descendant. This sprawling stellium will affect the full range of human relationships at a very deep level over the next couple of years, probably for the duration of Saturn’s transit of Sagittarius.

Few indeed will be able to avoid the issues raised by this influence or resist the pressure to make fundamental relationship changes. In essence, we will bring our relationships into line with spiritual evolutionary goals on a personal and a global level.

This 6th and 7th house influence will naturally integrate with the unusually strong emphasis on justice, fair play and sound reasoning in this pivotal chart. People will not have the luxury of retreating into the usual lies and deceptions, or self-deceptions.

Some of the bodies in this grouping, however, will raise familiar relationship issues. Hence, in this status, I will focus on a subset of the bodies in this larger 6th and 7th house group.

The subgroup of influences I will focus on will affect us on unusually deep psychological and spiritual levels (several levels at once) with which most have had little experience. It will also raise issues of which most of us, most of the time, are only vaguely aware or choose to ignore.

Mutual Obligation

The 6th house is about relationships in which both parties depend on each other for something they need or want. These can be straightforward economic or family relationships. Or the 6th house can represent the reciprocity and mutuality inherent in all bonds of love and affection.

Wild Centaurs Couldn’t Make Me

The bodies at issue (many of them are so-called centaurs) have been discovered only recently, in historical terms, some of them very recently. Their influence is not yet well understood. Although they might have been affecting us subconsciously throughout our history.

I believe that we only began dealing with these influences consciously since they were discovered. I think, now that we have discovered these influences, they will become a constant in our lives and we will eventually take them in our stride. Looking back, we can see their influence over the last several decades, over the last century in some cases. They are discovering more of these bodies every few years.

Even so, I think in recent years and months, these influences have been foregrounded and kicked into high gear. And what we are seeing in the Saturn Sagittarius ingress chart is a further escalation.

It could be rough until we’re all broken in on these new vibes at these new levels. We might be hearing things we never wanted to hear from people we never expected to hear them from.

~ Ixion (2001) appears to govern the moral integrity of those in high office.

~ Ceres (1801) appears to represent the fundamental social imperative to provide life’s necessities for ourselves and those in our charge.

~ Pholus (1992) appears to govern our ability to uphold community standards in our personal lives.

~ Quaoar (2001) appears to govern our ability to free ourselves from existing patterns of thought when appropriate.

~ Chariklo (1997) appears to govern our respect for personal boundaries, including the most subtle personal boundaries. (I am thinking that political correctness, which emerged as a prominent issue in the 1990s, might have been an early manifestation of Chariklo’s influence)

The effects of these bodies might not be entirely clear. However, it is fairly clear that these bodies govern deep and subtle psychological and spiritual processes on an individual and collective level.

Darned if We Do, Darned if We Don’t

The transformative influence of these bodies will be intensified by Saturn’s presence in Sagittarius. The issues they raise will be more acutely felt, more carefully considered and the need to resolve them more urgent.

The 6th house governs relationships that we cannot realistically walk away from. They provide the material and emotional necessities of life. Because we cannot easily walk away from them, the combined effects of Saturn, Ixion and the other bodies on these relationships will compel us to make difficult choices, often with life altering consequences.

Inwardly, we will have to confront some of our greatest fears and anxieties and begin healing our most deeply buried wounds. Outwardly, we will have to confront those who can deny us things necessary to life as we know it.

A Hairpin Turn

Nessus and Chiron in Pisces on the midheaven square Ixion, Ceres, Pholus, Quaoar and Chariklo in Sagittarius in the 6th.

The Chiron square to these bodies could motivate positive change in our conduct of 6th house affairs through illness, injury and other kinds of discomfort. Essentially, Chiron will cut through deep, old, blocks to the very core of our resistance to change. This process can release intense, long-buried emotional pain, as many of us well know.

Nessus can cause severe and chronic discomfort, often of a psychosomatic nature. It might afflict those who allow social pressure to keep them from deepening their understanding and improving their handling of 6th house issues.

Saturn’s influence will most likely multiply the pressure and increase the negative effects of this complex and challenging influence, dramatically limiting our options. It will also tend to force decisions we didn’t realize we’d ever have to make.

Between a Rock and a Mutable Place

It certainly appears that the planets are playing hardball. And I think it will often feel that way. But the unavoidable issues, sharp conflicts, narrowed options and hard choices will be supported by an abundance of mutable energy. Pisces and Sagittarius are mutable signs. The 6th and 9th houses are home to mutable Virgo and Sagittarius.

The sharp edges in this chart are also softened by underlying structural harmonies – subtle mutual reciprocities and planetary exaltations, and so on. These are technical factors that would take a long time to explain. Suffice it to say, that they will go a long way toward helping us process these difficult and sometimes treacherous energetic currents.

There is another powerful and powerfully placed supporting influence at work in this chart, the North Node.

An Unusually Strong North Node Placement

The North Node is perhaps the most powerful point in any chart. Ultimately, the North Node determines which actions the chart will support and which it will not. It also tells us how the winds of planetary justice are blowing.

The inherent power of the North Node is amplified by its placement in this chart. The North Node is in the 4th house. The 4th house is the home the natural sign of the Moon and the home of the Sign Cancer which is governed by the Moon. The Moon has a strong natural link to the North Node. The Moon’s orbit defines the placement of the North Node. All of which powerfully reinforce the power of the North Node.

This powerful North Node in Libra will instill a heightened desire for justice and fair play. Since the North Node determines the location of eclipses, it is also an active force for justice. The eclipses will cause events that satisfy our desire for justice.

The North Node is inconjunct Nessus and Chiron in Pisces on the midheaven and sextile Ixion, etc. in Sagittarius in the 6th.

The North Node makes a pair of aspects that partly, drive, partly soften and partly support the activity in Pisces and Sagittarius.

The North Node is inconjunct Chiron and Nessus in Pisces. It biases the expression of these  potentially harsh energies (http://on.fb.me/1D0oaMF) in favor of the North Node’s drive for spiritual evolutionary progress. These influences might still produce their often harsh effects, but the outcome would further the cause of justice and fairplay.

The North Node also sextiles Ixion, etc. in Sagittarius. This will draw the effects of all the difficult interactions directly into spiritual evolutionary channels. Any actions that result would tend to flow naturally along spiritual evolutionary pathways.

Given the power of the North Node in this chart, these mitigating aspects will go a long way toward softening the decidedly difficult influences affecting our relationships.

Six Degrees or Less of Separation

In essence, the these influences will be triggering very deep and sometimes very painful mental and emotional releases. Aside from the inevitable psychological and spiritual challenges, these releases will be accompanied by conflicts in our personal and professional relationships. The energies at work in this chart will take us much closer to the root causes of the difficulties in our lives and in the world at large.

We will no longer be willing to tolerate the injustice or conceal the discomfort it causes us. We will be compelled to speak or act, unable and unwilling to control our desire for change.

We will all feel the need to renegotiate the terms of our relationships, person by person, situation by situation, relationship by relationship. In each case, imbalances large and small will be corrected.

We will make literally trillions of large and small changes to our relationships and at a fairly profound psychological and spiritual level. These immense numbers of small changes will send seismic shocks through the world’s social, economic and political systems in the next couple of years. We speak of destructive and constructive aspects. These might best be thought of as re-shaping.

A COUPLET OF SYCHRONOUS READINGS FOR 2015

A COUPLET OF SYCHRONOUS READINGS

FOR 2015 2015

2015 will call on each of us to make choices: Do I choose to let go of all negative emotions, all that I have been taught on the plane of duality about myself and the way life is? Do I choose to release all fear of a God I have been taught is violent, eternally punishing and vindictive?

Do I choose to get to know Mother/Father God as All-Loving … to recognize that I was created in Love and carry within me that spark of Divine Love … that I am a child-god seeking to evolve into Oneness with God?   Do I choose to believe that Love Is All That Is?

2015 will be a year in which we are faced with these questions because we are moving from the planes of duality (3rd and 4th dimensions) to the 5th dimension and above where only Love and Light exists.

In order to make this transition, we must release all emotions and beliefs that will hold us back. That is the purpose to all our challenges—to wake us up to the Truth that All Is Love! There is nothing to fear!

Studying these Readings will grant us an understanding of what is happening in our lives during 2015.

May you remember that the more you cling to life as you have previously known it, the harder it will be to face the challenges and release the old ways of dealing with them.

This song perfectly describes the most positive way to live in 2015! JUMP IN & TRUST THE GOD WITHIN YOU TO SHOW THE WAY THROUGH THE CHALLENGES INTO THE LIGHT!

 Astrology Status for December 31, 2014 – Happy New Year, Sort Of

Carl Boudreau

December 31, 2014 at 11:15pm

Neptune, Nessus and Chiron in Pisces

Nessus, Chiron and Neptune have been traveling the Zodiac together for the better part of the last ten years. Neptune and Chiron have been together in Pisces since February of 2011. Nessus first entered Pisces in April of 2014 and remained there until it retrograded into Aquarius in August.

Nessus’s initial foray into Pisces coincided with several of the most difficult months, psychologically and spiritually, in recent memory. http://on.fb.me/1K34rB5 Social, political and economic conditions showed improvement, but our personal lives came under great pressure.

In February 2015, Nessus will complete its transition into Pisces, joining Neptune and Chiron for the full transit. They will all remain together in Pisces until 2018 when Chiron enters Aries. The force of this grouping will be accentuated by squares from Saturn.

We are dealing here with a rare and unusually intense dose of difficult and unfamiliar energy. In a sense, we are being blind-sided.

To the best of my knowledge, these three bodies have not been together in Pisces since at least 650 A.D., probably a lot longer, and more than a thousand years before any of these bodies were discovered. ( 650 A.D. is the earliest date for which data on Chiron are available.) It will not happen again until about 2502 and for only a comparatively brief stretch. Saturn will be in Cancer.

Indeed, it is rare to find these bodies together in a single sign at all, especially with a difficult aspect from Saturn. In all those centuries between 650 A.D. and now, Neptune, Nessus and Pisces were together in the same sign once, in Sagittarius, in 665 A.D. Saturn was in Capricorn.

On the macro level, this triple transit of Pisces could bring a significantly higher than normal incidence of natural and man-made disasters, including instances of violence and hardship. The energies will all but certainly manifest negatively on the individual level.

However, on both the collective and individual levels we are likely to benefit somewhat from the immunity conferred on us by Nessus’s temporary stay in Pisces last summer. Many of us got to grips with the energies of Neptune, Nessus and Chiron in Pisces then. By all accounts, it was rough. Hopefully, some of those lessons stuck.

A Time of Psychological and Spiritual Crisis

Chiron wields the power to forcibly break down our ego’s resistance to psychological, spiritual and moral growth. Chiron often precipitates spiritual crises.

On the individual level, Chiron often works through emotional or physical injuries, which are often, but not always, karmic in nature. Chiron will cause sudden, surprising accidents that bring with them sudden, surprising realizations, or expansions of mental and emotional boundaries. On the macro-level, Chiron can work through natural and man-made disasters.

Working together, Chiron and Neptune will expose hidden injuries and incomplete healing. Neptune dissolves the veils of unconsciousness that hide unhealed injuries and unresolved issues. This energy will almost certainly manifest at crisis levels in some cases.

Resistance Isn’t Futile

Nessus governs our ability to resist negative, destructive emotions – our own or those of others. It governs, for example, our ability resist the desire for payback, or revenge, individually or as part of a group. Nessus also governs our ability to resist pressure to do wrong or to remain silent while others do wrong. Nessus is about retaining our moral independence. I strongly suspect that bad Nessus energies play a role in discrimination and the persecution of minorities.

On the individual level, Nessus works by translating guilt we incur by compromising our moral principles into chronic physical or psychosomatic illness. Nessus, builds strength of character over time. It teaches us to maintain a positive, patient, compassionate attitude toward ourselves and others – to do and say the right thing – despite our own discomfort. Long term.

On the macro-level, Nessus will teach us to resist war hysteria, for example, as well as racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. I am not sure how Nessus achieves its effects on the macro-level. It probably isn’t pleasant.

Neptune and Nessus in combination will penetrate and dissolve the veils that conceal moral weakness and ‘motivate’ us to overcome those weaknesses on both an individual and a collective level.

Neptune, Nessus and Chiron and Saturn to Boot

None of these bodies will conjoin the others while they are all in Pisces (good news!). However, their difficult influence will be intensified by Saturn’s broad square to Pisces from Sagittarius. The Saturn square will be exact on the dates below (UT is used throughout):

~ Saturn in Sagittarius Squares Nessus in Pisces: May 2, 2015 and Sept. 26, 2015.

~ Saturn in Sagittarius Squares Neptune in Pisces: Nov. 26, 2015, Jun. 18, 2016 and Sept. 10, 2016.

~ Saturn in Sagittarius Squares Chiron in Pisces: Dec. 28, 2016, Apr. 30, 2017 and Nov. 2, 2017.

Saturn leaves Sagittarius for the full transit of Capricorn in December 2017. The troublesome trio will remain behind together in Pisces until 2018 when Chiron enters Aries.

Nothing Is Hidden That Will Not Be Released

Many of the negative patterns in our lives and in world events are the result of negative patterns imbedded and preserved in our individual ego or in our collective unconscious, or both. As long as those patterns remain essentially unchanged in our unconscious, social, political and economic reform can only go so far. Our ego, or the mass mind, will block reform and progress, trying to keep its embarrassing secrets hidden, its pain buried and its illusory comfort and imaginary security assured.

Neptune, Nessus and Chiron in Pisces, with an assist from Saturn in Sagittarius, will help us overcome and overpower the ego’s resistance to the removal of these defective patterns. In that way, these planets will dramatically increase the scope and pace of social, economic and political reform.

Not Every Bad Thing is the Result of Bad Personal Karma

I want to avoid the implication that all negative experiences triggered by these transits are the result of personal bad karma. The aspects I discussed above should not be understood in terms of “punishment,” “judgment” or “retribution.”

Even the very wise have difficulty understanding what is the result of karma and what is the result of random, impersonal and unavoidable circumstance. Often they are the result of sacrifices made in the interests of spiritual evolutionary progress.

The Broader, Positive Astrological Context

We need to be mindful, too, that, despite the releases triggered by this influence, we will be experiencing the power of the positive synchronicity of Saturn’s Sagittarius transit in our lives. http://on.fb.me/1K34CMS While we are enduring what might turn into a marathon release of psychological and spiritual negativity, we will probably not have to worry also about global economic and political collapse.

***TWO***

You are realizing that you are indeed beings of Love, created in Love.

12/29/2014 by John Smallman

[I am away from home, so no audio version of today’s message will be uploaded.]

The New Year, 2015, is nearly upon you, and I can assure you that it has some wonderful surprises in store for you!

Yes, I am being optimistic and up-beat because your task is to keep your spirits high so that you remain in the “fast lane” towards home, and one of my tasks is to assist and encourage you.  But that does not mean that I am misleading you!  I would never do that.  However, many of you are feeling disappointed and let down because it seems to you that “the event,” for which you are all waiting so enthusiastically, has at best been delayed and at worst is a delusion that you bought into because the world situation appears so grim, and because you desperately wanted and needed something uplifting and inspiring to cling to.

Well “the event,” your awakening into your natural and fully conscious state, is more real than anything you have ever experienced within the illusory environment that seems to hold you unwillingly in its clutches.  Truly you are not held unwillingly, you are just afraid to let go of the illusion to which you are clinging so firmly and consign yourselves into the loving arms of your Father, arms that He patiently holds open awaiting your acceptance of them.

You built the illusion, collectively of course, and you will demolish it.  But its demolition will not be violent, there will be a very gentle but rapid melting away or dispersal of it as you collectively awaken into Reality.  As you look around you now and see all the violence and suffering that so many are experiencing it is hard for you to conceive of such a dramatic change of scene, but humanity has made enormous strides on its path home to Love, and has made the irreversible choice to awaken.

The tipping point, at which your collective embrace of Love outweighs your collective hold on fear, totally dissolving it, is the moment for which you have all been waiting.  It is your move from the nightmare, which seems to enfold you all either as participators – willing and unwilling – or as unhappy observers, into an environment of harmonious and loving cooperation where you will work together with those in other realms who are on standby ready to assist you to heal yourselves and the planet when the tipping point is reached.

You can have no idea of the immense variety of technologies that those from other realms will bring with them to assist you in returning Gaia to the state of perfect health that is her natural state.  Over the eons, as humanity’s many and wide-ranging forms of “civilization” have engaged in unwise industrialization, enormous damage has been wreaked upon her and is still ongoing today.

The technologies that humanity has been using recently to mine her for resources you consider essential or valuable are not in fact clever, efficient, modern, and safe, as large scale industrial businesses would attempt to persuade you, but just the opposite.  Your alternate media has been doing an excellent job in uncovering and bringing to your attention the vast scale of damage that international industrial conglomerates have wrought upon Gaia in the last few decades, and much pressure in the way of public awareness and opinion is forcing them to reassess their operations and actually take the first essential steps towards reversing the damage that they have caused.  They are resisting and dissembling, but the truth about their pernicious activities has been revealed, and they have no option but to alter their attitudes and behaviors to align with the loving attitudes of the vast majority who want humanity and Gaia healed.

It is that change of heart, of attitudes, that is accelerating your progress along your path to awakening.  You are realizing that you are indeed beings of Love, created in Love, and you are therefore responding lovingly to resolve issues that have been troubling humanity for eons and which, until now, had seemed insurmountable and insoluble.  Needless to say they are not.  It is just that humanity has been split into many different factions – familial, political, business, national, cultural, and religious – with different and conflicting egoic agendas that have prevented you from coming together to address and resolve them.

That is all changing because the Tsunami of Love, which has been having an enormous effect on those of you who are consciously on a spiritual path, has been inspiring and uplifting you to engage with It and by so doing share and extend Its energy throughout all of humanity.  This is the divine plan in action, and evidence of its inspiring presence can be seen in all parts of the world.

Do not be misled by the mainstream media’s almost constant focus on fear, and on their reports of threats of terrorism.  Throughout humanity’s long history on the planet there have always been fears, conflicts, and wars, and for those directly involved there has been much suffering, but those conflicts have always been instigated by those who would control and suppress you as they still are.

Of course there are people who believe in the power of violence to bring them rewards, but they are in a very small minority.  However, they have always noisily attempted to instill fear into their contemporaries and supporters in order to build fear based organizations that they can use as a means of control to achieve their own selfish agendas by ensuring that governments do their bidding.  This state of affairs is coming rapidly to an end.  People in many parts of the world are now very much aware of the endemic corruption in high places and will no longer tolerate it.

When support for these corrupt ones falls away, as it is now doing, they are quickly seen to be straw men, weak and fearful individuals who are utterly powerless without supporters and lackeys to do their bidding.  Massive changes are under way as individuals reclaim the power that they had, in many cases unthinkingly, given away to so called authorities that had been established with the sole purpose of protecting the few whose one aim is power and control over others.  Many of you refer to those seemingly all powerful ones as the “dark cabal.”  Dark and hidden they may well have been, but not any longer.  Their influence and notorious agendas are being disclosed with, for them, alarming speed, and in that disclosure lies their inevitable downfall.

Truly, the news is good as 2015 approaches, so continue holding your brilliant Light on high as you demonstrate Love in action.  Visit your holy inner sanctuaries at least once daily and re-empower yourselves with the Love that is your core, your center, so that not only you, but also all with whom you interact each day are uplifted and inspired as you move forwards towards your assured awakening.

With so very much love, Saul.

Carl Boudreau’s Astrology Status for September 5th – Major Energy Shift Ahead and September’s Forecast

Carl Boudreau’s

Astrology Status for September 5th – Major Energy Shift Ahead and September’s Forecast* [chart attached]

September 5, 2014 at 2:31pm

A Big Energy Shift Ahead*

The Long Term Perspective

A worldview, or a belief system, is a carefully chosen set of ideas that explains who we are, how the world works and how we can best fit into it.

There are numerous religious worldviews. There is a single, more unified and consistent scientific worldview. There are numerous political worldviews, etc., Many mix and match worldviews. Almost everyone has a worldview, or belief system, and relies on it to navigate their life.

In addition to everything else they did, the last 6 or 7 years adversely affected our worldview. So much changed so dramatically, most worldviews are now badly out of date and generally inadequate to our present needs.

We cannot single-handedly create-or update – a worldview. Creating, maintaining and changing worldviews is a complex group phenomenon. And the planetary help we would need to accomplish such a group upgrade is just around the corner.

The bottom line is that we’re all standing at a crucial life crossroad without a road map. The good news is that, although our worldviews are still in flux, the planets are are about to bring them into much closer alignment with reality.

Neptune and Saturn are absolutely crucial to the birth, growth and evolution of ideas, including the ideas that make up our worldviews. Neptune makes ideas flexible and expansive. Saturn keeps ideas logical.

Saturn and Neptune often work at cross purposes, but between them, they help us keep our ideas about the world real, relevant and reasonable.

Presently, Neptune is in Pisces. Saturn will soon be in Sagittarius (December 2014).  As Saturn moves into Sagittarius, we approach a pivotal moment in the evolution of the ideas that largely determine the nature of our world, the flow of events, and guide our lives.

Saturn and Neptune will be in broad square relationship from the moment Saturn enters Sagittarius. There will be three exact Saturn/Neptune squares between November 2015 and September 2016.

As Saturn squares Neptune, rigid, fixed ideas will become more flexible; unrealistic, inaccurate ideas will become more realistic and accurate. We will take more time to arrive at an opinion, on the one hand, and be less likely to cling to outdated opinions on the other.

Our ideas will tend to mesh slowly into a more solid, stable and reliable picture of the world. This will happen on a large enough scale to bring all our idea, and our worldviews into better alignment with reality globally.

This process might be of little help to those with grossly unreasonable, irrational worldviews. But for those whose worldviews are basically reasonable and just need an upgrade, these four squares will be a blessing. Their worldview will come into closer alignment with the truth of our situation and, thus, become more empowering and effective.

It should also be noted that the coming Saturn/Neptune square marks a major energetic shift, away from the strictly physical and material world to the mental, emotional and spiritual realms.

September’s Chart

I know this talk of worldviews and their effect on our lives can seem impersonal and abstract. But September’s composite chart gives us an idea of just how personal and concrete the transformation of a worldview can be.

I view September’s chart as both preparation for and a preview of what we can expect as Saturn moves into square relation with Neptune. It will initiate a thorough and fairly rigorous review of all the ideas we use to understand our lives.

September will show us how such a process looks and feels on the micro- and macro- levels. (The reassuring bits come at the end.)

September’s T-Square

The most important and indicative aspect in September’s chart, in my opinion, is a T-Square. This T-Square involves the Moon’s Nodes, Mercury, Uranus and Pluto, Capricorn, Pisces and Leo, and the 2nd, 5th and 8th houses.

In effect, it involves all the major spiritual evolutionary forces in the chart. It will affect the totality of our finances and all of our personal relationships – romantic, social, professional and otherwise. This T-Square leaves very little untouched.

The T-Square’s Effects on the Macro-Level

On the macro-level, the real battle in September will be between people fighting to preserve the gross inequality of the old status quo (Uranus conjunct the South Node in the 8th) and those committed to genuine economic reform (Mercury conjunct the North Node in the 2nd).

The debate could be strident, rancorous and confusing. At bottom, though, the forces of spiritual evolution (North Node), will support those fighting for genuine change, as proposed by the grassroots. False arguments in support of injustice and inequality will finally be understood to be untrue.

September’s Relationship Yod

The Yod in September’s chart indicates that we could all experience this confusion and conflict in an intense and deeply personal way. The mental and emotional turbulence of August is probably not over.

The Yod involves Pluto, Chiron and Jupiter, the 5th, 7th and 12th houses, and Capricorn, Pisces and Leo, respectively.

Generally, this Yod will produce persistent, rapid, see-saw tensions over spiritual, moral, social, cultural and relationship issues in general and romantic issues in particular. These tensions will push us persistently and repeatedly to spiritualize all our relationships.

It could also compel us to modify or end relationships that do not work for us on a spiritual level. Alternatively, the Yod will push us to change relationships so that they do support our efforts to spiritualize our lives.

Deeply Destabilizing September Overall

September’s composite chart is a full, slowly boiling cauldron of transformational and disruptive energies. Try to imagine what it would be like to immerse your mind and your emotions in this cauldron.

September’s chart will send continuing swarms of mental and emotional shocks, large and small, through our lives – at home, at work, at play, on individual and group levels. These numberless shocks will open cracks between ourselves and our most important friends and allies.

Disillusionment and realization will alternate in close, rapid succession. That, in turn, could subtly undermine our social and professional lives as well as give us room to maneuver.

The same basic process will occur on the macro-level. This effect will be pervasive and global.

Long-standing political and economic loyalties will come apart, slowly but surely reshaping the political and economic landscape. This will be its own source of excitement and stress for anyone caught up in these events. And to some extent, we are all caught up in these events.

All of this can cause persistent, low-grade stress that, over time, will undermine our sense of mental and emotional well-being. This, in turn, could undermine our physical health. By the same token, it will undermine peace and stability at the community, state, regional and national levels.

But that is not the last word. The last word is an encouraging one.

Subtle But Pervasive Moderating Influences – An Encouraging Note

We must not be disheartened at the thought of so much instability. Underlying harmonies in September’s chart tell us that a new consensus is already taking shape, a solid foundation is forming in the deeper levels of our minds. We are already creating the foundation for a new stability.

Unlike the seemingly open-ended stresses and strains of recent years, these stresses and strains will come with an end in sight.

There is, for example, a subtle form of reciprocity between the chief planetary players in September’s chart.  Aquarius is the natural house of Uranus. Aquarius occupies the 6th house, the natural house of Mercury. Hence, we find a degree of reciprocity that will help moderate the high voltage Mercury/Uranus opposition and help us find resolution. There are other such factors at work in this chart.

Also, despite what is sure to be a strident and rancorous debate, the sheer power of this Yod will work in favor of compromise. It  is powerful enough to force genuine and lasting changes on all levels.

The Yod is driven hard by Pluto and, with Chiron, will produce pressures uncomfortable or painful and urgent enough to force accommodation. The sheer strength and relentlessness of this dynamic Yod will push people toward compromise and consensus.

Those ceaseless little shocks to the system that drive things apart will also be providing the flexibility we need to form new, more productive alliances.

The subtle, pervasive destabilization caused by this Yod will also open us to deep, subtle forms of inspiration and guidance and give us the freedom and the motivation to act on that guidance.

Finally, as Saturn moves into Sagittarius, we will benefit from a broad (Saturn, Uranus, Jupiter) trine in fire signs. This broad trine is especially favorable for large, complex changes that require wide-ranging coordination and cooperation. It will begin in December when Saturn enters Sagittarius and fade when Jupiter leaves Leo in August 2015.

Beneath the turbulence, hidden behind the clouds of turmoil and the din of public debate, good things will be happening. We must not allow ourselves to be so overwhelmed by the stress of these changes that we lose sight of the good stuff – the reasons for hope and confidence in the future.

[We should also be mindful that September’s pressures are driving us toward October’s eclipses. Eclipses always mark turning points and deadlines, foreseen and unforeseen. These eclipses will reset everyone’s expectations and accelerate forward motion. Keep that in mind, too.]

*This analysis is based on a composite chart, combining information for the new and full moons of September 2014.

“June’s chart indicates a major turning point for everyone that will change their worldview and ripple through all of their relationships, and on out into world at large.

The planets are putting us in touch with our deeper selves, stimulating us to live more authentically. We will strive to be more authentic ourselves and demand greater authenticity from others.”

A fascinating report.  Although Carl does not mention a new economy or NESARA, the star configurations are speaking to our co-creation of the NEW EARTH and of the DIVINE GOVERNMENT we the people will establish in our nations.  The YOD that Carl points out is called in esoteric astrology “the finger of God.”  We are being assured that Divine Guidance will be with us as we co-create our New Earth.
